    Jayson Tatum Feb 24 1:00am ET

    Celtics' F Jayson Tatum scored 41 points on 12-of-20 shooting in a 112-114 loss to the Lakers on Sunday, Feb. 23.

    Bradley Beal Feb 24 1:00am ET

    Washington's G Bradley Beal scored 53 points on 15-of-27 shooting in a 117-126 loss to Chicago on Sunday, Feb. 23.

    Coby White Feb 24 1:00am ET

    Bulls' G Coby White scored 33 points on 11-of-18 shooting in a 126-117 win over the Wizards on Sunday, Feb. 23. White is owned in only 12.50% leagues.

    CJ McCollum Feb 24 1:00am ET

    Portland's G CJ McCollum recorded a double-double, scoring 41 points with 12 assists in a 107-104 win over the Pistons on Sunday, Feb. 23.

    Dejounte Murray Feb 23 11:30pm ET

    San Antonio Spurs point guard Dejounte Murray went 0-for-7 from the field versus the Oklahoma City Thunder, finishing the game scoreless. The game comes as a surprise, as the Spurs faced off against the Thunder right before the All-Star break (Feb. 11) and Murray scored 25 points on nine of 12 shooting from the field, shredding the Oklahoma City defense. However, looking ahead, four of the Spurs' next five opponents rank in the bottom half of the league in defensive rating, offering Murray the chance to get his rhythm back while also making him a favorable matchup (in most cases) going forward.

    Chris Paul Feb 23 11:20pm ET

    Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Chris Paul recorded 12 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds in Sunday's bout versus the San Antonio Spurs. Paul, who is in the midst of his 15th NBA season, has served as both a mentor and a leader for the Thunder this season, playing a large part in their surprising success. Looking ahead, the Thunder's next two games are against the Bulls, who have one of the worst defensive backcourts in the league, and the Kings, who rank 19th in the league in defensive rating. Paul would be a more than favorable fantasy play in both of those games.

    Luguentz Dort Feb 23 11:20pm ET

    Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard Luguentz Dort scored 15 points on six of six shooting from the field in the Thunder's convincing win over the San Antonio Spurs. Dort, who is a rookie on a two-way contract, also led all Thunder players with a plus-36 plus/minus. Despite the great performance, Dort will likely be pushed out of the starting lineup upon the return of Terrance Ferguson, making it highly unlikely he'll repeat this type of performance anytime soon. However, head coach Billy Donovan could utilize Dort as a defensive specialist going forward.

    Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Feb 23 10:40pm ET

    Oklahoma City Thunder shooting guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led all scorers with 22 points in the Thunder's 131-103 victory over the San Antonio Spurs. Alexander also chipped in 13 rebounds, which is a big leap from his season average of 6.2 rebounds per game. Alexander, who led all Thunder players with 32 minutes in this game, has emerged as one of the faces of the Oklahoma City franchise this season, and he will likely take on an even larger role among the team as the season goes on.

    Steven Adams Feb 23 10:30pm ET

    Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams finished Sunday's game versus the San Antonio Spurs with 21 points and 14 rebounds. Adams also shot eight of 12 from the field, and the game marked his fourth straight recording at least a double-double. Looking ahead, three of the Thunder's next four opponents rank in the top half of the league in defensive rating, threatening to put an end to Adams' impressive double-double streak. In addition, one of those games is against the Milwaukee Bucks, who are a historically great interior defensive team, allowing opponents to score just 38.7 points per game inside the paint.

    Zach LaVine Feb 23 10:30pm ET

    Chicago Bulls guard Zach LaVine supplied 32 points, four rebounds, three assists, one block and three steals in 36 minutes of play during the 126-117 win over the Wizards on Sunday. The former Timberwolves player went 6-for-12 from deep as well. As the top scorer on this team, the 24-year-old is also the unquestioned fantasy star on this injury riddled squad. The numbers are there every game for LaVine, who is averaging 25 points and 34.6 minutes per game. He needs to be started in fantasy going forward because of the lack of scoring threats on the team right now.

    Coby White Feb 23 10:30pm ET

    Chicago Bulls guard Coby White followed up a 33-point performance on Saturday with another 33-point performance in Sunday's 126-117 win over the Wizards. The 20-year-old also provided six rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals in 34 minutes of play. The rookie hasn't been fantasy relevant this season, but with the rash of injuries on the team right now, he is stepping up big time. The North Carolina product should continue to see more playing time in the near future, thus propelling him into a fantasy worthy start for Tuesday's matchup against the Thunder. Be sure to grab him if he's available in your league.

    Thaddeus Young Feb 23 10:30pm ET

    Chicago Bulls forward Thaddeus Young scored a season-high 25 points in the 126-117 win over the Wizards on Sunday. The veteran also chipped in six rebounds, two assists and three steals in 30 minutes of play. On an injury ridden Chicago squad, it's a next-man-up mentality, and the 31-year-old has stepped up to score in double digits through all seven games in February. With injuries to key guys such as Lauri Markkanen (pelvis), Kris Dunn (knee), Denzel Valentine (hamstring) and Wendell Carter Jr. (ankle), Young is in a prime spot to deliver on Tuesday against the Thunder.

    Davis Bertans Feb 23 10:00pm ET

    Washington Wizards forward Davis Bertans finished with 22 points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal through 37 minutes in the 126-117 loss to the Bulls on Sunday. The 27-year-old also went 5-for-11 from downtown. The former Spur has been a bright spot for the Wizards, averaging 14.9 points and 29 minutes per game. After an inconsistent start to the season, the forward has flourished in February, scoring in double digits during all eight games this month. The league-leading Bucks visit the nation's capitol on Monday, thus spelling a hard matchup for Bertans against this top-tier defensive team.

    Bradley Beal Feb 23 10:00pm ET

    Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal scored a season-high 53 points in the 126-117 loss to the Bulls on Sunday. The Florida product also added five rebounds, four assists, one block and two steals in 39 minutes of play. The 26-year-old is shouldering a heavy load nightly as the top scoring option on this team. Nevertheless, these high point totals have been sustainable because there is no other elite scorer on the Wizards. Beal has posted at least 30 points in 10 of the last 13 games. That type of incredible production means the guard should be started in every matchup no matter how tough the defense is that he goes up against.

    Kyle Kuzma Feb 23 9:10pm ET

    Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma only scored 11 points total in the two games before the meeting with the Celtics. However, he found his groove on Sunday. Kuzma scored 16 points on 6-for-13 accuracy from the field and grabbed four rebounds in 27 minutes off the pine. He played the second-most minutes out of any Laker reserve, behind only Kentavious Caldwell-Pope. Despite his impressive performance, owners should pass on Kuzma until he proves capable of contributing more consistently.

    Daniel Theis Feb 23 9:10pm ET

    Boston Celtics center Daniel Theis has been quietly productive this season, and Sunday's matchup against the Lakers proved no different. The German scored 16 points, and he converted on all but one of his seven field-goal attempts. Also, Theis made his presence known on the glass as he pulled down nine rebounds in 31 minutes of action. It was the second consecutive standout performance for him. Theis tallied 25 points and 16 rebounds against the Timberwolves on Friday. He is worth a look for those in search of a solid big man on the waiver wire.

    LeBron James Feb 23 9:00pm ET

    Los Angeles Lakers forward LeBron James, as usual, impacted the game in a variety of ways. He finished with 29 points, nine assists, and eight rebounds in 35 minutes against the Celtics on Sunday. James saw nine of his 19 field-goal tries find the bottom of the net, and he was able to knock down four three-pointers. The one area he struggled in was free-throw shooting, as he went only 7-for-12 from the charity stripe. Expect James to once again have a big night against the Pelicans on Tuesday, who give up the fourth-most field-goals per game in the league.

    Anthony Davis Feb 23 9:00pm ET

    Los Angeles Lakers forward Anthony Davis led the way for his squad en route to a 114-112 victory over the Celtics. In a team-high 39 minutes, he collected 32 points on 3-for-5 shooting from deep along with 13 rebounds and two blocks. But, it was quite an inefficient outing for him overall. Davis turned the ball over six times, and he only made 10 of his 25 field-goal attempts. With that being said, it does not change the fact that he is one of the league's best fantasy players, and he should continue to be for the remainder of the season.

    Jayson Tatum Feb 23 9:00pm ET

    Boston Celtics forward Jayson Tatum caught fire versus the Lakers on Sunday. In 37 minutes of play, the 21-year-old scored 41 points on 12-for-20 shooting from the field, 4-for-7 from three-point land, and he converted on all but two of his 15 free-throw attempts. Tatum also chipped in five rebounds, two assists, a steal, and two blocks in the 112-114 loss for Boston. Considering Tatum is averaging 28.3 points per game in February, he is currently a must-start in all fantasy formats.

    Tobias Harris Feb 23 6:20pm ET

    Philadelphia 76ers forward Tobias Harris (knee) suffered a knee contusion and is doubtful to play against the Atlanta Hawks on Monday. Harris suffered the injury in Saturday's game, but played through it. With Ben Simmons (back) already ruled out and Harris likely sitting, the Sixers will rely heavily on Joel Embiid and Josh Richardson on offense. Furkan Korkmaz, Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks will all likely see a boost in playing time as well.
