The Bucks are unlikely to trade Brandon Jennings or Monta Ellis before the deadline, a source told Yahoo! Sports.

The Bucks have stated all along that they intend to keep Jennings and match any offer that he receives in restricted free agency, but if Ellis opts out as he's expected to, the Bucks starting backcourt could be hitting free agency together. The source told Yahoo! that the team doesn't have "anuything going trade-wise" for either player.

Nikola Pekovic's troublesome ankle flared up on him during Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies, and he is expected to be reevaluated on Monday

Not good. Pekovic hasn't exactly been the most durable player in recent years, and it looks like the Wolves were playing with fire when they decided to play him in the second game of a back-to-back set. Pekovic lasted just two minutes in the second half on Saturday, and we would be surprised if he ended up playing against the Clippers on Monday.

Trey Burke replaced Dante Exum in the starting lineup at halftime and did not disappoint, scoring 23 points in a 82-75 win over the Bucks on Saturday.

Exum looks lost out there, and it's surprising that Burke hasn't yet reclaimed his starting spot. Burke has been on fire recently with averages of 18.2 points, 3.8 assists, 2.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 2.2 3-pointers in 28.8 minutes over his last five games, and it's obvious that the Jazz desperately need his scoring punch . Even if coach Quin Snyder opts to keep bringing Burke off the bench, he is still worth owning in most leagues and should continue to see his minutes trend up.

Kawhi Leonard dominated on offense during a 101-74 win over the Suns on Saturday with 22 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and two blocks.

After a very rough start to the second half, Leonard is back. He was taking too many jumpers and he's gone back to being more aggressive. Kawhi had a nice line of 17 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal on Friday, so his fantasy owners can finally start to feel great about him. We're expecting a big finish thanks to a friendly schedule.

Gorgui Dieng played 39 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday with 13 points, nine rebounds and two steals.

With Nikola Pekovic only getting 12 minutes, Dieng picked up a lot of playing time. We still don't know for sure why, but Dieng has to be owned in all leagues because he is capable of being an early-round guy. If he was dropped, go get him.

Nikola Pekovic played just 12 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday with one point, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

He played less than two minutes in the second half. The first thing to come to mind here is that his ankle isn't feeling great on the second half of a back-to-back set. His fantasy owners knew there was a lot of risk and hopefully the Wolves say it was just scheduled rest or because Marc Gasol destroyed him.
Feb 28 - 11:03 PM

Marc Gasol scored 27 points against the Wolves during a 101-97 win on Saturday with 11 rebounds, four assists and two blocks.

He made 11-of-14 from the field tonight and bounced back nicely from an 11-point game on Friday. Unlikely his teammate Zach Randolph, Gasol is cruising in the second half with averages of 17.4 points, 7.6 boards, 3.8 assists, 2.6 blocks and 0.4 steals. He's one of the best big men to own in fantasy.

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.
Feb 28 - 10:37 PM

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.
Feb 28 - 10:35 PM

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.
Feb 28 - 10:22 PM

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.
Feb 28 - 10:18 PM

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?
