Moe Harkless    G/F  Trail Blazers

 

 

Moe Harkless scored nine points with three assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Suns on Saturday. He had a very big game on Friday with six steals, but Harkless was right back to his quiet ways today. It's really hard to trust coach Terry Stotts when it comes to players not named Dame Lillard, C.J. McCollum and Jusuf Nurkic.

Bobby Portis    F  Bulls

 

 

Bobby Portis picked up 15 points in 20 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 122-104 loss at Minnesota. Portis hit 6-of-13 from the field, including 1-of-3 from behind the arc, while adding 2-of-2 from the free-throw line. He also helped out with four rebounds, an assist and just one steal. It wasn't quite the 38 points he posted in Thursday's game against Philadelphia, but this is a more realistic line on what to expect from Portis. He has emerged as a must-start fantasy option across the board.

Devin Booker    G  Suns

 

 

Devin Booker scored 30 points with nine rebounds, three assists, two blocks and five 3-poitners in a 106-104 loss to the Blazers on Saturday. He's said he wants to play the rest of the way and the Suns are probably going to allow him to do whatever he wants. The break likely helped Booker get his torso injury right and it's not too farfetched to think he can flirt with 30 per game going forward. He'll need to avoid minor injuries to stay in the lineup.

Kris Dunn    G  Bulls

 

 

Kris Dunn posted 10 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocked shots over 29 minutes in Saturday's loss at Minnesota against his former team. It was his first time back in the Twin Cities since the offseason trade involving he, Jimmy Butler, Zach LaVine, etc. After the game, head coach Fred Hoiberg said his goal is to make this a top-5 team in terms of pace over the final 20-plus games, so you can expect the younger players like Dunn, LaVine, etc. to be doing a lot more running and perhaps they'll see a bump in production as a result.

Marquese Chriss    F  Suns

 

 

Marquese Chriss scored five points with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday. It was actually one of his best games and yet he still didn't get big minutes. Fantasy owners probably shouldn't take the bait on this game and just leave him on the wire.

Josh Jackson    F  Suns

 

 

Josh Jackson scored five points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 19 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday. It was one of his more quiet games of the year, but the first unit actually looked good today. There's nothing to worry about here for one of the hottest rookie in 2018.

Zach LaVine    G  Bulls

 

 

Zach LaVine finished with 21 points across 32 minutes in Saturday's loss at Minnesota. It was LaVine's first game back in the Twin Cities since the offseason deal involving LaVine, Jimmy Butler and a handful of others. He also chipped in with seven assists, six rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot while hitting 7-of-17 from the field, and 7-of-8 from the free-throw line. He averaged 28.0 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 4.0 APG and 1.5 SPG in two meetings with his former team this season.

Dragan Bender    F  Suns

 

 

Dragan Bender scored five points with one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday. He's going to be really inconsistent and he's basically Marquese Chriss 2.0. Bender has some upside, but he's probably going to be annoying to own. We do not like the Suns PF spot this season.

Alex Len    C  Suns

 

 

Alex Len scored 11 points with 13 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 28 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday. That definitely works. Not much analysis needed here with Len playing well in both of his back-to-back games against tough matchups, which followed his monster game before the break. He should be owned in all leagues now that he looks healthy, and his owners can just cross the injury bridge when they get to it.

David Nwaba    G/F  Bulls

 

 

David Nwaba hit 6-of-9 field-goal attempts in Saturday's loss at Minnesota, finishing with 14 points. Nwaba also chipped in with nine rebounds with just two turnovers, although he was credited with an ugly minus-16 rating, worst in the game. And if you want to split hairs, his 2-of-4 line from the charity stripe wasn't terribly attractive, either. He'll look to keep up the hot shooting Monday in Brooklyn, the first of a three-game week.
