Fantasy Impact: Sabonis scored 24.0 points in the Pacers’ loss to the Celtics, making it his fourth consecutive game with 20.0 points or more. Even though his production has regressed a bit in several statistical categories this month, he continues to produce at a high-level night-in and night-out, making him a must-consider play in all DFS formats whenever the Pacers are on the slate.

Fantasy Impact: McDermott scored 6.0 points in the Pacers’ loss to the Celtics, making it his worse scoring performance of the month. Despite this rough showing, he has been able to play some of his best basketball in February, as he has increased his production in several key performance categories. McDermott's consistency and relatively healthy floor keep him fantasy relevant as a last-piece option for your DFS lineups.

Justin Holiday totaled 19 points (6-10 FG, 5-9 3PT, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, and two assists, two blocks, one steals in 33 minutes in the Pacers' 118-112 loss to the Celtics on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Holiday scored 19.0 points in the Pacers’ loss to the Celtics, making it his ninth game out of the last eleven that he has had a double-digit performance. He is playing some of his best basketball this month as he has seen increased production in all major performance categories. Holiday's improved consistency makes him an intriguing last-piece value asset for your DFS lineups.

Malcolm Brogdon totaled 12 points (5-17 FG, 2-7 3PT), six rebounds, and six assists in 33 minutes in the Pacers' 118-112 loss to the Celtics on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Brogdon scored 12.0 points in the Pacers’ loss to the Celtics, as he struggled with his shooting efficiency going 29.4 percent from the floor and 28.6 percent from beyond the arc. He was able to salvage his night with several rebounds and assists; however, it was an overall poor performance for the four-year veteran. Brogdon's production has dipped some since the beginning of the year; however, his game's overall consistency creates a high-floor and ceiling that makes him an attractive value asset for your DFS lineups.

Myles Turner totaled 17 points (4-13 FG, 2-8 3PT, 7-7 FT), ten rebounds, one assist, three blocks, and one steal in 37 minutes in the Pacers' 118-112 loss to the Celtics on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Turner had a 17.0 point double-double performance in the Pacers’ loss to the Celtics, making it his third of the month; it was also his second consecutive game stuffing all the stat-sheet categories. Although he has regressed in several performance categories this month, he remains a core cog of the Pacers' starting rotation. Turner is worth considering for your DFS lineups, even though he comes with some risk due to the inconsistency of his production.

Pelicans sharpshooter JJ Redick is seen as doubtful to play in Saturday's game against the Spurs due to right hamstring tightness. (Source: Pelicans PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Redick played 26 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Bucks and must've suffered a hamstring injury in the process. The 36-year old vet has seen his playing time and value plummet this season and wasn't going to be on the fantasy radar even if he suited up.

Jazz point guard Mike Conley will not play in Saturday's game against the Magic due to hamstring tightness management. (Source: Andy Larson on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Conley played 33 minutes in Friday's loss to the Heat, so the team is just giving him the night off to rest his hamstring. Joe Ingles will likely slide into the starting lineup and handle point guard duties against the Magic.

Nets superstar Kyrie Irving will not play in Saturday's game against the Mavericks due to what the team is calling right shoulder recovery. (Source: Malika Andrews on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Irving will miss his 11th game of the season on Saturday as the team is opting to be cautious with their superstar guard. James Harden should get a bump in usage and becomes an elite option without Irving in the lineup. Tyler Johnson and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot should see some extra minutes as well.

Paschal Siakam is expected to miss at least the Raptors' final three games before the All-Star break. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Siakam missed Friday's game against Houston due to the league's health and safety protocols and will miss at least the next three games before the All-Star break. Without Siakam unavailable, Norman Powell and OG Anunoby will see expanded usage.

Montrezl Harrell produced 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and one block across 30 minutes on Friday in victory.

Fantasy Impact: After multiple bumps in the road, Harrell has put together a sting of performances to ease the fears of managers. Friday marked his sixth-straight double-digit scoring session and his fourth-straight game playing 20 minutes or more. While this is comforting to those who invested a good amount in Harrell this season, the test begins in earnest when Anthony Davis returns to the rotation.

Kelly Oubre Jr. collected 27 points (11-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal across 38 minutes on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Oubre may have produced his finest performance of the season on Friday against a tricky Hornets bunch. His 27 points marked his highest total of the campaign and after coming out of the gates a bit shaky this year he's certainly found his footing with Golden State. His performance, which featured an impressive 73.3 field-goal percentage on 15 shots, netted him 41.5 fantasy points (DraftKings) on Friday.

Draymond Green posted 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt), 19 assists, 12 rebounds, one steal and one block en route to a 130-121 win on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Green may have painted his masterpiece on Friday with an all-world triple-double outing. His 19 assists marked the most he's earned in his checkered career. It's astounding to see the evolution of his game from when he entered the league until now. His monster 61 fantasy points (DraftKings) eclipsed any output he's recorded this season. At this point, he's nearly a lock to register in every category every night.

Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge (wrist) is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Pelicans. (Source: San Antonio Spurs Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: It's worth monitoring Aldridge's status as we near tip-off. If he is good to go with no minute restrictions, he is in a position for more usage with many teammates unable to play Saturday. If Aldridge cannot play, we cannot expect to see a lot of playing time from Jakob Poeltl and Trey Lyles.

Stephen Curry notched 29 points (8-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 10-10 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and one steal over 36 minutes on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Curry was back to his sharp shooting ways on Friday as he posted a 53.3 percent from the field. Curry was the catalyst of a Warriors squad that collected 130 points against a scrappy Hornets unit. An overlooked facet of the point-guard's production this season has been his ability to get to the line for easy production. He's gone to the line 32 times over his last three contests ad only has missed one attempt.

Spurs guard DeMar DeRozan (personal) is available for Saturday's matchup against the Pelicans. (Source: San Antonio Spurs Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: With many teammates out and LaMarcus Aldridge questionable, DeRozan is in a position to have a lot of usage while on the court in addition to projected standard playing time.

Gordon Hayward registered 12 points (4-10 FG, 3-3 3PT, 1-2 FT) with two rebounds, five assists, two steals, and two turnovers across 34 minutes in Friday's 130-121 loss against the Golden State Warriors.

Fantasy Impact: Hayward has cooled off considerably from his hot-start earlier in the season, taking on more of a secondary role to the Hornets' backcourt comprised of Terry Rozier, LaMelo Ball, and Malik Monk. As it stands, fantasy managers should continue rostering Hayward in season formats but he might not be worth the high price he continues to be listed at in DFS contests. Hayward is still averaging 16.5 points across 32 minutes in his last week of action, so he remains a viable SF option. However, there are cheaper players with higher ceilings available elsewhere to construct a winning DFS lineup. The Hornets will get a day off before continuing their West Coast road trip against the Sacramento Kings on Sunday.

P.J. Washington scored 15 points (3-7 FG, 2-4 3PT, 7-8 FT) with 10 rebounds, four assists, four steals, and two turnovers across 29 minutes in Friday's 130-121 loss against the Golden State Warriors.

Fantasy Impact: Washington had an excellent game for fantasy purposes against the Warriors, particularly in point formats, as the Hornets' power forward forced four steals and collected 10 rebounds paired with 15 points and four assists. He's certainly not a focal point of the offense but should be rostered moving forward, as Washington is an excellent defender and capable of getting buckets in the paint and on the perimeter. The Hornets will get a day off before traveling to play the Sacramento Kings on Sunday.

Jae'Sean Tate finished with eight points (4-8 FG, 0-2 3PT), four rebounds, and one assist in 23 minutes during Friday's loss to the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: While Tate was given the starting nod, it was Eric Gordon who saw 32 minutes off the bench in this one. Tate has been really productive across multiple categories ever since James Harden was traded and should continue to get plenty of playing time as Houston looks to build for the future. There just might be some duds like this with there being so many mouths to feed at the moment. He'll look to return to his productive form in Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

Danuel House Jr. scored 11 points (3-8 FG, 3-7 3PT, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one steal, and two turnovers in 33 minutes during Friday's loss to the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: House remained in the starting lineup despite Houston's backcourt regaining their health and knocked down three of his seven three-point attempts. While he's not going to win you a league, he has been getting consistent playing time since returning from injury back in January and has a pretty stable floor. He'll be a sneaky DFS option in Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

Eric Gordon produced 17 points (5-12 FG, 3-8 3PT, 4-5 FT), two rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and three turnovers in 32 minutes off the bench during Friday's loss to the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: With Houston's backcourt now healthy, Gordon was thrust back to the bench where he still managed to produce in the scoring department. Gordon is a guy who will consistently average somewhere near 20 points per game whether he's starting or coming off the bench but doesn't offer much outside of that. His value is mainly tied to head-to-head points leagues where other categories aren't counted. He'll look to stay in rhythm for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.
