Richaun Holmes    F/C  76ers

 

 

Richaun Holmes scored 11 points with two rebounds and five fouls in 16 minutes off the bench during a 122-97 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday. It's a big-time letdown for Holmes after blowing up for 24 points and 14 boards on Monday. Holmes did get in foul trouble during this game and Shawn Long was in the mix for 15 minutes due to some garbage time. Jahlil Okafor also got the start today, but he probably won't be holding that job for very long. Holmes should remain owned in all leagues.

Nik Stauskas    G  76ers

 

 

Nik Stauskas scored 20 points with one assist and five 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday. After dropping 20 points on Monday, Stauskas has now scored 20-plus points in consecutive games for the first time in his NBA career. He has also played at least 30 minutes for three games in a row, which is his longest such streak on the season. Still, Stauskas could totally fall off in his next game, so he's not really a great fantasy pickup.

Gerald Henderson    G/F  76ers

 

 

Gerald Henderson scored four points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 16 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday. The 76ers didn't play Henderson on Monday and actually put him in the first unit to start the second half. With the 76ers likely wanting to get a longer look at their younger wings, Henderson won't be playing too much down the stretch.

Marcin Gortat    C  Wizards

 

 

Marcin Gortat, who played only 12 minutes on Monday, finished Wednesday's game with four points, six rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes. Foul trouble was the culprit on Monday, but there's no avoiding the fact that Gortat has been a liability for owners at the most critical stage of the fantasy season. He's averaging 7.1 points, 9.4 rebounds and 0.9 assists in his past eight games, with zero steals and just two blocks in that span.

Bradley Beal    G  Wizards

 

 

Bradley Beal chipped in a team-high 28 points during a hard-fought win vs. the Hawks on Wednesday, making 10-of-21 shots with four 3-pointers, nine rebounds, four steals, two assists and one block. Beal scored under 20 points in each of his past two games, but he busted out tonight to keep the Wizards afloat in an otherwise brutal first half. He's likely to detonate vs. the Nets' defense on Friday.

John Wall    G  Wizards

 

 

John Wall made 6-of-21 FGs and 9-of-12 FTs vs. the Hawks on Wednesday, finishing with 22 points, 10 assists, four steals, two rebounds and two blocks in 34 minutes. Wall went into halftime scoreless on 0-of-8 FGs and 0-of-2 FTs, but he was on a mission in the third and fourth quarters, helping Washington come back for an impressive home win. Wall also threw down a decisive dunk on a breakaway late in the fourth quarter, which you can enjoy via the link below.

Trey Burke    G  Wizards

 

 

Trey Burke picked up another DNP-CD on Wednesday. Burke dealt with an illness last week but he's had ample time to recover, and he's simply not part of the rotation.

Timothe Luwawu    G  76ers

 

 

Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot scored three points with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer against the Thunder on Wednesday. He did not start the second half perhaps because he didn't play well in the first half. Luwawu-Cabarrot should remain in the first unit, but he really doesn't do enough on the stat sheet to warrant a pickup in most leagues.

Bojan Bogdanovic    G/F  Wizards

 

 

Bojan Bogdanovic scored five points in 15 minutes on Wednesday, going 2-of-6 from the field with one 3-pointer, two rebounds and two turnovers. Bogdanovic was riding a 10-game streak with double-digit points, but he took a backseat in the rotation tonight -- the Wizards deployed 10 players, and only Brandon Jennings logged fewer minutes than Bojan. This is a perfect example of his hollow fantasy value, as he doesn't help you when he's not scoring.
