Nikola Pekovic scored 24 points on 6-of-12 shooting (12-of-16 FTs) with eight rebounds and one steal in the Wolves' 95-93 loss to the Raptors on Friday.

Godzilla was moving people around at will tonight and should do so for the rest of the year. Andrei Kirilenko scored 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting with a full line, and Ricky Rubio went for 13 and 12 with five boards in the loss.

Alex Len double-doubled with 12 points and 11 rebounds in Thursday's overtime win over the Thunder, adding one assist and three blocks in a career-high 38 minutes.

Len has come a long way since the beginning of the season, and he has arguably been one of the hottest commodities in fantasy since the All-Star break with averages of 9.4 points, 10.8 boards and 3.4 blocks in 32 minutes per game over his last five. His ankle injury looks like a thing of the past, and as long as Len stays healthy his owners are going to be in for a fantastic finish to the season.

Eric Bledsoe was a superstar against the Thunder on Thursday during a 117-113 overtime win, making 11-of-16 from the field for 28 points with 13 rebounds, nine assists, one steal, four blocks and two 3-pointers.

That's good for an effective field goal percentage of 75.0. In what was a very uptempo game, Bledsoe seemed to be in total control, which has been the story for his game lately. In his last six games, Bledsoe averaged 20.7 points, 7.3 boards, 7.2 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.3 blocks and 1.3 treys on 50.6 percent from the field. People don't call him Mini-LeBron for no reason.

Russell Westbrook notched his second straight triple-double in Thursday's 117-113 overtime loss to the Suns, finishing with 39 points, 14 boards, 11 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes, though he did suffer a minor ankle tweak in the closing moments of the game.

That's good for a 48.3 usage rate. He was seen walking around the locker room with no visible limp after the game, so it doesn't look like he is in any danger of missing any action. Westbrook was able to find a tremendous amount of defensive rebounds and he carried the OKC offense tonight, especially in transition. He and teammate Serge Ibaka were No. 1 and 2 in fantasy value since the break. In addition to that, Westbrook is on pace with Oscar Robertson to become the second player in NBA history to average 30 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds in a month. If you're under 40 years old, you've never seen this before.

Andrew Bogut couldn't break out of his slump against the Cavaliers on Thursday, scoring just six points with five boards, two assists and two blocks in 21 minutes.

He has averaged just four points per game over his last four, shooting just 37 percent from the floor over that span. Bogut is still worth holding onto for his upside in blocks and rebounding, but the Warriors will likely be very cautious with him down the stretch given his injury history. In fact, head coach Steve Kerr hinted that Bogut may be rested on Sunday vs. Boston or Monday vs. Brooklyn, so his owners should keep their head on a swivel for an update. If and when Bogut does sit out, expect Marreese Speights and David Lee to benefit the most.
Feb 27 - 1:32 AM

David Lee scored 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting with four boards, two assists and one block vs. the Cavaliers on Thursday.

He singlehandedly outscored the Cavaliers' bench 19-14, but it wasn't enough to keep the Warriors from losing this one. Lee's value this season has been limited due to the emergence of Draymond Green, and he is not going to be worth owning as long as he continues to play around 20 minutes per contest. For what it's worth, this was just Lee's third game with double-digit scoring over his last ten.
Feb 27 - 1:16 AM

Klay Thompson was held to just 13 points in a loss to the Cavaliers on Thursday, adding seven boards, four assists, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He shot just 5-of-13 from the field and turned the ball over three times, but the three blocks were his most since Jan. 17. Thompson has seen his scoring average dip to 18.2 points per game in February after averaging 25.9 points in January, so hopefully the sharpshooter gets back on track soon.
Feb 27 - 1:04 AM

Kyrie Irving (shoulder) will not travel to Indiana on Thursday night is now doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

Irving is set to undergo an MRI on Friday morning, so his owners will have to agonizingly wait for an update. The fact that he is not going to travel with the team should all but rule him out for Friday, but crazier things have happened. Iman Shumpert and Matthew Dellavedova will have their hands full in the backcourt if Irving sits, while LeBron James and Kevin Love will carry the load on offense for the Cavs.
Feb 27 - 12:06 AM

LeBron James scored a season-high 42 points in a 110-99 win over the Warriors on Thursday despite briefly leaving the game with a tweaked back.

He added 11 rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes, and it didn't look like his back caused him any problems after he returned to the game. Incredibly, this was James' 41st career game with 40 points, five assists and five rebounds which is the fourth-most in NBA history behind Wilt Chamberlain (61), Michael Jordan (62) and Oscar Robertson (71). The MVP race between James Harden, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook and LeBron is going to go right down to the wire.

Kevin Durant (foot) did some light shooting before Thursday's game against the Suns

This is great news. Durant was rolling around shootaround on a walking scooter on Tuesday, so this is a clear indication that they were just being very careful with his foot. We still do not have a timetable for his return and he's likely to need more than another week off. His fantasy owners should be hoping for a limited practice in the coming days. While he's out, D.J. Augustin and Dion Waiters will help Russell Westbrook with the scoring.
Feb 26 - 8:13 PM

Bulls Vice President John Paxson said on Thursday that he is hopeful that Derrick Rose (knee) will be able to return this season.

Rose is set to undergo surgery on Friday morning at which point a firm timetable will be established, but the Bulls are hoping that this latest injury is just a minor setback. Owners might as well stand pat for now until we get more details after the surgery, but there is still a good chance that Rose misses significant time. Aaron Brooks will continue to start for the Bulls at PG in the meantime and is worth a look in most leagues.
Feb 26 - 7:58 PM

Jose Calderon is not considering shutting it down for the season after his latest Achilles injury.

Calderon is currently in a walking boot and is listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Pistons, but it's great to see him eager to return to action despite the Knicks fighting the 76ers for last place in the Eastern Conference. Langston Galloway will be the primary beneficiary if Calderon misses time, while Shane Larkin (illness) could get some increased run as well.
