Kostas Papanikolaou had another nice game against the Mavericks on Saturday with eight points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.
The minutes jump off the page here and Papathreekolaou attempted six shots from deep. He figures to be a part of the solution at power forward, so fantasy owners can certainly look to grab him to help in deeper leagues. He's the biggest winner from the Dwight Howard (knee) injury.
Derrick Favors double-doubled against the Pelicans during a 106-94 loss on Saturday with 13 points, 11 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 34 minutes.
He had a front-row seat for the Anthony Davis Show, but Favors wasn't too bad on the offensive side of the ball. Favors has two sub-par games in a row and his foul shooting is coming down, but his owners shouldn't be overly concerned.
Trey Burke shot the ball well against the Pelicans on Saturday, making 8-of-12 from the field for 20 points with four assists, one block and two 3-pointers.
Maybe his buzzer-beater at Madison Square Garden has carried over, but that's unlikely. Burke is still shooting just 32.0 percent from the field before this game, so he'll need to string together a few games before we say he's ready to take off.
Alec Burks made 1-of-11 from the field against the Pelicans on Saturday for two points with four rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and four turnovers.
No bueno. Burks has been trending down since a solid start and this is obviously his worst game. He'll get better, but fantasy owners can consider cutting him if there is a hot free agent out there.
Gordon Hayward was terrific in a losing effort against the Pelicans on Saturday, making 9-of-16 from the field for 31 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.
He made 11-of-14 from the line, which serves as a great indicator of how aggressive he was tonight. Hayward adding some muscle to his frame was highly evident tonight and his new style should help him sustain a better shooting clip. The breakout is real.
Jrue Holiday helped close the door on Saturday's 106-94 win over the Jazz with 19 points, six rebounds, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.
He made Trey Burke look like he belonged in the D-League and just roasted him late. Holiday is really starting to come on and he's going to have some extra shots come his way with Eric Gordon (shoulder) out. He's been a top-10 guard before and that's possible this season.
Ryan Anderson made 2-of-15 from the field against the Jazz on Saturday for five points with six rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.
He is going to get more minutes with Eric Gordon (shoulder) out, so this is a prime opportunity to send a buy-low offer. Anderson will certainly get it turned around after his two games without a trey.
Tyreke Evans came on late against the Jazz on Saturday, finishing with nine points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and two turnovers.
He continues to struggle with his shot, but the Pelicans will have to play him more at shooting guard now that Eric Gordon (shoulder) is down. Evans could flirt with top-60 value now with a lot of minutes on his plate.
