The Raptors lost in Brooklyn on Saturday despite Kyle Lowry's game-high 28 points, four 3-pointers, eight rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one block.

How well has Lowry begun his career with the Raptors? In his first two games, he became the first player since Morris Peterson in 2006 to record back-to-back games with 20+ points, 6+ rebounds and 6+ assists. Best of all, there are zero signs of the groin/abdominal injury that reared up in the preseason.

James Johnson scored 14 points against the Knicks during a 103-98 loss on Saturday with seven rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 33 minutes.

He's arguably the most valuable player on the Raptors for fantasy value right now. In his last five, Johnson averaged 13.2 points, 4.4 boards 1.2 assists, 2.2 blocks and 1.6 steals on 63.3 percent from the field. He should be owned in all leagues.

Brandon Knight suffered a hip injury against the Spurs and will not return, finishing with just one point and two assists in 17 minutes.

He missed all six of his attempts from the field and clearly wasn't himself tonight. There is no word on the severity of the injury, but we should know more soon. Gerald Green started the second half in place of Knight, and he will have an excellent shot to play big minutes if Knight misses any additional time.

Trey Burke is starting the second half in place of Dante Exum in Saturday's game vs. the Bucks.

Exum hasn't been playing well for the Jazz and was held scoreless in eight minutes at halftime. Burke, on the other hand, has been fantastic recently and is coming off a 19-point performance vs. the Nuggets on Friday. Burke is the PG to own in Utah for the foreseeable future.

Dennis Schroder helped allow the Hawks rest three of their starters and still pull out a 93-91 win in Miami on Saturday, scoring 16 points with four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

The Hawks have won all the games in which Jeff Teague misses, which is a huge credit to Schroder. Since summer league he has shown he's capable of being a starting point guard for several teams. In his previous starts, Schroder averaged 11.6 points, 2.8 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 0.6 steals. He's a strong start when Teague sits, but the All-Star should be ready for action on Tuesday.

Paul Millsap scored 22 points against the Heat on Saturday with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

His fantasy owners will want to keep their eyes peeled for an upcoming DNP due to rest. Looking at the schedule, the Hawks have another back-to-back coming up next Friday and Saturday, so Millsap owners will want to be on alert there. Millsap continues to stuff the stat sheet, but he's actually only been a mid-round guy since the break because of his struggles at the line recently. He's a top-25 player going forward.

Hassan Whiteside matched his career-high 24 boards against the Hawks on Saturday with 14 points and two blocks in 34 minutes.

Before his time with the Heat, Whiteside had a grand total of 39 rebounds in his career. Now he has two games with at least 24 boards and continues to be one of the wildest stories of the season. Plus, he's also made at least 60 percent from the field in each of his last two months. How did every team dismiss this guy?
Feb 28 - 10:08 PM

Marcin Gortat grabbed a season-high 17 boards against the Pistons during a 99-95 win on Saturday, adding 16 points, one block and three steals.

Time after time big men have been torching the Pistons frontcourt. Gortat has finally seen his his numbers come up with double-digit boards and at least one block in each of his last five games. If you were able to buy low over the break, you're probably seeing some nice dividends.

Bradley Beal played a surprisingly high 32 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday with eight points on 2-of-10 from the field with six rebounds, five assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

He might have played a little more, but his shot was just off tonight and he wasn't help his team much. Beal was doing most of his work on the perimeter, but there was no indication that he's still dealing with his leg issue and he was diving for loose balls in the fourth. He was only doing 3-on-3 before tonight and he should get a full practice in soon. Beal is a must-own player.
Feb 28 - 9:35 PM

Kevin Garnett was ejected from Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies after picking up his second technical foul, finishing with six points, three boards, two assists and three steals in 15 minutes.

He drew a second technical for slamming the ball down hard, but the Minnesota crowd loved his intensity. Garnett isn't going to have a big role in Minnesota at this point in his career, and with the constant risk of him picking up precautionary DNPs, he isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Feb 28 - 9:31 PM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored a career-high 20 points against the Wizards on Saturday with four rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

He was fantastic tonight and coach Stan Van Gundy went with the rookie down the stretch. Dinwiddie attempted good shots all night and he also wasn't too shabby on defense. As nice as this was, the Pistons are still going to give Reggie Jackson a lot of run most nights. Dinwiddie is only worth an add in deep leagues for now, but keep an eye on him for his upside in several fantasy categories.
Feb 28 - 9:27 PM

J.J. Barea is starting alongside Rajon Rondo, Monta Ellis, Richard Jefferson and Dirk Nowitzki for Saturdy's game vs. the Nets.

The Mavericks are going small in order to match up better with the Nets, as they are currently starting Joe Johnson at power forward. It's going to be interesting to see how the Mavericks play with three ball-dominant guards on the court at the same time, but it's not likely to happen too often. Barea is capable of contributing a decent amount of points, assists and 3-pointers, but his value is still limited to deeper leagues for now. Bernard James started in place of Tyson Chandler (hip) on Wednesday against the Hawks and scored seven points with 11 rebounds and two blocks, but he will return to a bench role for tonight's contest.
