Torrey Craig returned to action on Saturday March 17.

Mar 18 - 3:30 AM

Dejounte Murray (ankle) was able to play 24 minutes in Saturday's game against the Timberwolves, but he managed just five points.

Murray exited Thursday's game early after turning his ankle. While he was just 2-of-8 from the field, he made up for it by chipping in with four steals, four rebounds and an assist while hitting his only 3-pointer attempt. He'll look for better results Monday against the injury-depleted Warriors as his team kicks off a four-game week.
Mar 18 - 1:50 AM

Manu Ginobili ended up with 10 points over 17 minutes off the bench in Saturday's victory against the Timberwolves.

Ginobili hit 4-of-6 from the field and he added 2-of-2 from the free-throw line, and he added three rebounds, three assists and two steals with a plus-11 rating. He has back-to-back double-digit point totals for the first time since Jan. 28-30. He remains far more useful to his real team than he does to fantasy owners at this point of his career.

Pau Gasol - F/C - Spurs

Pau Gasol ended up with 12 points, eight assists and seven rebounds over 24 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 117-101 win against Minnesota.

Gasol was a very efficient 6-of-10 from the field, and he added a steal and a blocked shot while finishing with a game-best plus-23 rating. It was just his third time hitting double digits in points in seven outings in the month of March, as he sorta limps to the finish line. He continues to give fantasy owners a decent amount of boards and blocked shots, but his days as a big-time scorer are in the rear-view mirror.
Mar 18 - 1:43 AM

Rudy Gay ended up with 14 points across 21 minutes in Saturday's 117-101 win against the Timberwolves.

Gay was very sharp, hitting 7-of-12 from the field, while adding four rebounds and four blocked shots. The veteran also chipped in with a steal as he teamed with LaMarcus Aldridge to help the team to a much-needed victory. The Spurs are in uncharted territory, battling for a spot just to get into the postseason to face one of the favorites in the Western Conference.
Mar 18 - 1:40 AM

LaMarcus Aldridge rolled up 39 points across 36 minutes in Saturday's 117-101 victory against the Timberwolves.

LMA accounted for 33 percent of the team's scoring output, and he added 10 rebounds with two assists and two blocked shots while turning it over just once. He was a very efficient 14-of-22 from the field, and 11-of-12 from the free-throw line. Aldridge certainly did it all, finding ways to help the Spurs to a win as they fight for a playoff spot in the Western Conference.
Mar 18 - 1:37 AM

Nemanja Bjelica ended up with seven points and eight rebounds over 37 minutes in Saturday's 117-101 loss in San Antonio.

Bjelica saw his season-high double-digit point streak come to an end, although he is working on a stretch seven or more rebounds in four in a row and seven of the past eight outings. He continues to log big-time minutes with Jimmy Butler (knee) on the shelf, and it might not be until the NBA playoffs before we see Butler against. As such, Bjelica will continue to play a huge role down the stretch in Minnesota and for fantasy owners.
Mar 18 - 1:35 AM

Jeff Teague went for 16 points across 31 minutes in Saturday's road loss against the Spurs.

Teague hit 6-of-13 from the field, including 1-of-1 from behind the 3-point line, while knocking down 3-of-4 from the charity stripe. He also chipped in with eight assists, two rebounds and two steals. Teague is working on a season-high 12-game streak with 10 or more points, as fantasy owners are enjoying his best stretch of the season. The Wolves will be back at it on Sunday against the Rockets.
Mar 18 - 1:32 AM

Karl-Anthony Towns finished with 23 points, nine rebounds, two assists and a blocked shot in Saturday's road loss against the Spurs.

It was just another night at the office for KAT, and perhaps the only thing fantasy owners and T'Wolves fans can complain about would be his five turnovers. He has two or more 3-pointers in three straight outings, and he is averaging 26.5 points and 11.5 rebounds per game across his past four starts. No one can complain about his durability, as he is yet to miss a game this season.
Mar 18 - 1:29 AM
Alex Len - C - Suns

Alex Len grabbed nine rebounds through 17 minutes as a starter on Saturday, adding five points on 1-of-4 shooting in a loss to the Warriors.

Len did a nice job on the glass, but it was tough for him to stay on the floor with the Dubs constantly trotting out small-ball lineups, and he didn’t bring much else to the stat sheet. If you think Len’s inconsistency is annoying now, just wait for Alan Williams (knee) to get into the rotation.
Mar 18 - 1:18 AM

Josh Jackson put in a career-high 36 points in Saturday's loss to the Warriors, adding two triples, six boards, four assists, two steals, one block and four turnovers in 36 minutes off the bench.

Jackson didn’t waste any time to get going once he got into the game, rattling off 18 points during his first 12-minute stint, and he never really took his foot off the gas pedal. He's been on quite the hot streak over the past three with averages of 24.0 points, 6.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 2.0 steals, 1.3 triples, 0.7 swats and 2.7 turnovers per game on 53.1% shooting, and with T.J. Warren leaving the game with a knee injury, Jackson is looking like a must-grab guy.
Mar 18 - 1:17 AM

Troy Daniels scored 18 points on 6-of-12 shooting Saturday, to go with three 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover through 29 minutes as a starter.

Daniels had the hot hand early for Phoenix, drilling three triples within his first five minutes of play, and he also came through with the defensive stats. Devin Booker’s hand injury doesn’t seem all that serious, but with T.J. Warren leaving the game with a knee injury there could be more opportunity for Daniels moving forward. Still, he’s not much more than a deep league, 3-point specialist and the Suns don’t play again until Tuesday.
Mar 18 - 1:15 AM

Elfrid Payton scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting Saturday, to go with one 3-pointer, seven assists, one steal and three turnovers in 27 minutes.

That's better, but still not great. Payton had been mired in a brutal cold streak over the past five games, so perhaps this is a sign that he's ready to start getting it going again. He's got decent upside, but if Payton puts up another stinker on Tuesday with a favorable matchup against the Pistons, owners may want to consider moving on.
Mar 18 - 1:14 AM

Damian Lillard scored 24 points with seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal, three blocks and three 3-pointers during a 100-87 win over the Pistons on Saturday.

Make it 12 straight for the red-hot Blazers to give them a two-game lead over the Thunder for the No. 3 spot, and a huge 5.5-game cushion to remain in the postseason. The Blazers first unit has been solid on defense, but Dame has been no slouch with averages of 31.1 points, 4.3 boards, 6.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 4.0 treys. He has a tidy 61.5 TS% and a 32.3 usage rate, so Dame is scoring the ball extremely well. They get a big game against the Clippers on Sunday.
Mar 18 - 1:12 AM

Kevon Looney scored 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting Saturday, to go with two rebounds, one turnover and a career-high six blocks in 25 minutes off the bench.

Looney displayed some excellent hustle throughout the game, and he’s emerged as a deep league defensive specialist over the past three games with averages of 9.7 points, 3.7 boards, 1.3 steals and 2.7 swats per contest on 50.0% shooting. Jordan Bell finished with four points, two rebounds, four assists, two steals, two blocks and zero turnovers in 18 minutes off the bench, and he too is on the radar as a low-end big to own in deep leagues.
