Dion Waiters scored just three points on 1-of-4 shooting in a loss to the Jazz on Saturday, adding two boards, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

Waiters had scored in double digits in each of his last four games, so this was a frustrating line for any owners relying on him tonight. Waiters is still locked into a starting role moving forward with Andre Roberson on the shelf, and he will have a chance to bounce back vs. the Suns on Sunday. That being said, he is far from a must-own player in standard leagues.

LaMarcus Aldridge stayed hot against the Nuggets on Saturday during a 120-114 win, making 13-of-20 from the field for 32 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

He carried his team on Friday in a big win at Phoenix and the Blazers have won all three games since LMA returned from a finger injury on Wednesday. They still only have the fifth-best record in the Western Conference, but they should be able to lock down the No. 4 seed because they should win their division. Aldridge and the Blazers get four games this week with three on national TV, too (Suns, Clippers and Lakers).
Mar 29 - 12:52 AM

Russell Westbrook scored 37 points with eight boards, six assists, three 3-pointers and nine turnovers in a loss to the Jazz on Saturday.

Westbrook's owners probably didn't even blink twice at this line which speaks volumes about his play recently. Kevin Durant isn't coming back this season, meaning Westbrook will arguably be the top play in fantasy leagues moving forward with the Thunder trying to clinch a playoff berth. Enjoy the show.

Arron Afflalo scored 21 points against the Nuggets on Saturday with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer on 8-of-11 from the field.

Revenge game? Afflalo didn't really have beef with Denver, but this was a very, very overdue positive showing. His two steals and 21 points were the most he's produced in a Blazer uniform. We'll need to see it again, especially considering he's been posting some single-digit usage rates this month.
Mar 29 - 12:48 AM

Damian Lillard made 4-of-11 from the field for eight points with three boards, 10 assists, one steal and three turnovers in 30 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

He's in a slump. He made just 4-of-15 from the field on Friday and tonight was just his third game without a trey on the season. On the bright side, the Blazers are on a three-game winning streak. He also had four fouls in a game for just the third time in 2015. His fantasy owners will get a four-game week starting on Monday, assuming they were able to withstand the Lillard drought this week.
Mar 29 - 12:44 AM

Steven Adams grabbed 14 boards vs. the Jazz on Saturday, adding five points, two assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes.

Adams briefly went to the locker room after a hard fall, but he quickly returned and didn't appear to be limited. He is reportedly still experiencing some pain in his elbow, but foul trouble was the reason for the low minutes tonight. He has slowed down in his past two games, but with averages of 9.4 points, 10.8 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.8 blocks over his last five, he is still worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 29 - 12:38 AM

J.J. Hickson played 26 minutes in a start against the Blazers during a 120-114 loss on Saturday, scoring nine points with eight boards, two assists and three steals.

Danilo Gallinari (rest) didn't play tonight, but Hickson only picked up four minutes from his Friday game. He's not a great player to add in most leagues for poor foul shooting and not much contribution to the defensive stats. The Nuggets are off until Wednesday and only play three games between now and Wednesday Apr. 8. That's not good.
Mar 29 - 12:36 AM

Will Barton scored 12 points on 6-of-8 from the field against the Blazers on Saturday with seven boards, three assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes.

He was known as Will the Thrill and the People's Champ in Portland as one of the fan favorites and he was quite comfortable tonight. Plus, he did the ol' inbounds pass of an opponent and was able to get an easy dunk. Barton is doing a fine job of adding multiple stats for his fantasy owners, but it's going to sting to have him on your roster because the Nuggets are off until Wednesday while tons of teams will play two games in that span.
Mar 29 - 12:33 AM

Enes Kanter failed to lead the Thunder past his former team on Saturday, scoring 18 points with 11 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 34 minutes.

He had some pretty brutal comments about the Jazz prior to the game tonight, and the home crowd certainly let him hear it throughout the game. Rudy Gobert won the matchup tonight, but Kanter still deserves some credit for the way he has been playing for the Thunder. Kanter is averaging an impressive 21.5 points and 12.3 boards over his last four games, and while he still doesn't produce assists, blocks or steals on a consistent basis, he should be locked in a must-start player in all leagues down the stretch.
Mar 29 - 12:32 AM

Jusuf Nurkic played 19 minutes off the bench against the Blazers on Saturday, scoring 10 points on 5-of-5 from the field with one rebound and one steal.

Joffrey Laurvergne came off the bench before Nurkic tonight, but he was still able to get some minutes. It looked like Nurkic was going to be unleashed with two big games last weekend in 27.5 minutes per game, but he's seen his playing time cut back. We still like him as a hold, but he's not completely undroppable because he's off until Wednesday.
Mar 29 - 12:31 AM

Jameer Nelson scored 22 points against the Blazers on Saturday with two rebounds, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

With Danilo Gallinari (rest) out, most of the Nuggets players moved up a position -- shooting guard to a small forward and so forth. That allowed Nelson to play next to Ty Lawson a little more, which has been happening more often. Nelson has scored at least 12 points in each of his last four and he's on the radar in deeper leagues.
Mar 29 - 12:29 AM

Randy Foye scored 17 points with one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 23 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

He scored just 14 points combined in his previous two games, but he really turned it around. Foye has been a must-own player in standard leagues thanks to his output in treys and coach Melvin Hunt has been playing him somewhat consistently.
