Buddy Hield made just 1-of-7 shots in 30 minutes on Wednesday, finishing a blowout loss to the Jazz with two points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover.

The Kings won their previous two games but they were decimated tonight, falling into a 20-point hole after one quarter. Hield will be a focal point of the Kings' attack as they develop younger talent down the stretch, and he came in scoring double-digit points in 13 of his past 14 games. He should have extra motivation to score the ball vs. the Pelicans on Friday.
Mar 30 - 2:25 AM

Georgios Papagiannis returned to action on Wednesday with eight points on 4-of-7 shooting, three rebounds, two assists and one turnover in 20 minutes.

Dave Joerger described Monday's game as a "last stand" for his team's veterans, so owners can expect plenty of DNPs in Sacramento's final seven games. As a 19-year-old lottery pick, Papagiannis figures to be one of the biggest winners, but the question is when Joerger will fully unleash his young guys. Again, there are only seven games left in the Kings' regular season.
Mar 30 - 2:23 AM

Skal Labissiere started Wednesday's game with Kosta Koufos resting, and he finished with nine points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

Skal logged 33 minutes despite racking up five fouls, and owners in roto leagues won't appreciate his 1-of-4 mark at the free throw line. He's at 55.3 percent FGs and 71.4 percent FTs on the season, however, so efficiency hasn't been a recurring issue. The Kings are leaning into their youth movement, which means Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis (20 minutes) should see their roles increasing down the stretch.
Mar 30 - 2:21 AM

Tyreke Evans started on Wednesday but finished with just nine points on 4-of-12 shooting, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, two steals and one assist in 25 minutes.

Evans sat out Monday's game and more DNPs are inevitable over the Kings' final seven games. They don't have any back-to-back sets until April 11/12, but there's no guarantee that Evans and other veterans won't be rested as a precaution before then. He's simply too unreliable to own outside of the deepest formats.

Rodney Hood - G/F - Jazz

Rodney Hood went 5-of-5 from deep on Wednesday, finishing with 18 points, two assists, two steals and one rebound in just 24 minutes of action.

Hood had 20 points, six boards and three assists on Monday with Gordon Hayward (quad) in street clothes. His efficiency tonight is a welcome sight for fantasy owners, especially since both Hayward and Alec Burks (personal) were back in action. He's been banged up and erratic for most of the season, shooting 41.3 percent overall, so hopefully he can finish strong for a Jazz team that holds a 1.5-game lead on the Clippers for the No. 4 seed.
Mar 30 - 2:10 AM

Gordon Hayward (bruised quad) returned on Wednesday with 20 points in 33 minutes, going 8-of-14 from the field with three 3-pointers, seven rebounds and four assists.

Tests cleared Hayward of any serious damage, so it's just a question of pain tolerance for Utah's prized swingman. "I'm going to try to play no matter what," Hayward said before the game. "With guys being out, it's up to everybody to pick it up, like we have all year." He looked great tonight and owners can start him with confidence for games vs. the Wizards (Friday) and Spurs (Sunday).

Alec Burks (personal) returned to action on Wednesday, posting three points, one rebound and one steal in nine minutes off the bench.

Burks missed one game following the birth of his first child, and his return was welcome news for Utah's depleted backcourt. He's still not worth owning while Dante Exum, Shelvin Mack, Gordon Hayward, Rodney Hood, Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles are all healthy.
Mar 30 - 2:03 AM

Dante Exum started vs. the Kings on Wednesday but he failed to score in 23 minutes, going 0-of-6 from the field with three boards, two assists and two turnovers.

The Jazz were playing without George Hill (groin) and Raul Neto (groin), so it was all hands on deck at the point guard spot tonight. Exum was chewed out by coach Quin Snyder after some early mistakes, and he was outplayed by Shelvin Mack, so there's no clear incentive to add him at any depth.
Mar 30 - 2:02 AM

Chris Paul scored 27 points during a 133-124 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, 13 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

The Clippers just smashed to match a season-high 133 points in this win. Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Paul and J.J. Redick reached the 20-point mark in the same game for the first time ever. CP3 appears to be out of his shooting slump and has now made 5-of-10 from deep in his last two, but there was never really much concern to begin with. Moving forward, the Clippers have a lot going on with playoff seeding, trailing the No. 4 seed Jazz by 1.5 games while holding a slim 1.0 lead over the Thunder. That should allow CP3 to log plenty of minutes in his team's final eight games.
Mar 30 - 2:01 AM

Shelvin Mack played well in 29 minutes on Wednesday, scoring 14 points on 5-of-8 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs, with one 3-pointer, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

George Hill and Raul Neto were both out with groin injuries tonight, so Mack logged more playing time than he'd seen since early January. Groin injuries tend to linger but Hill and Neto are both day-to-day, so Mack is little more than a streaming option in deep leagues.
Mar 30 - 2:01 AM

Blake Griffin scored 26 points with 10 rebounds, nine assists and two steals against the Wizards on Wednesday.

The Clippers offense was on fire and Blake's bucket with 5:43 left in the third made the Clippers the fastest team to 100 points in a game this season -- Lawler's law worked again today. Griffin's numbers were trending down with only 17.7 points per game over his previous 10, which has knocked him down to just fifth-round value per game on the year. Hopefully, this big game gets him going again.
Mar 30 - 1:55 AM

DeAndre Jordan scored 23 points with 18 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 38 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He has scored 20-plus points in consecutive games for the first time this season and the fourth time in his career. Jordan has also been cleaning up on the glass with double-digit boards in eight straight, and he's also up to 76.5 percent from the field in March for his 14.1 points per game this month.
Mar 30 - 1:51 AM

J.J. Redick scored a season-high 31 points with one assist and seven 3-pointers against the Wizards on Wednesday.

Nobody told the Wizards that Redick can shoot a little bit, and maybe they thought he wasn't playing despite his ankle injury from the weekend. Redick should also be a bigger part of the offense in the short term now that Austin Rivers (hamstring) is going to miss time. He was trending down, but now he's trending back up due to the Rivers injury.
Mar 30 - 1:43 AM

Jamal Crawford scored 14 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He should be getting closer to 30 minutes with Austin Rivers (hamstring) set to miss at least one game. Crawford could be a scoring specialist and gets a friendly matchup on Thursday against the Suns.
Mar 30 - 1:41 AM

Coach Doc Rivers said Austin Rivers (hamstring) "will be out for a little while" and will not play on Thursday against the Suns.

He has hamstring soreness and the Clippers won't need to rush him back now that J.J. Redick is healthy. Redick is coming off a season-high 31 points and should benefit the most until Rivers comes back. Jamal Crawford figures to pick up some minutes and perhaps Raymond Felton plays a little more SG.
