Fantasy Impact: Holiday and Monte Morris were both linked as potential free agent point guard targets for the Suns. Phoenix will only be allowed access to the veteran’s minimum in free agency due to second apron penalties.

Amen Thompson scored 18 points (8-9 FG, 2-3 FT) to go along with 11 rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and three blocks in the Rockets 116-105 win over the Clippers.

Jabari Smith Jr. scored 15 points (6-19 FG, 2-10 3PT, 1-2 FT) to go along with eight rebounds and three assists in the Rockets 116-105 win over the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact: Smith ends a fairly inconsistent season with a poor shooting performance from the field. There was some who thought the injury to Alperen Sengun could help Smith, but his production did not take a huge step forward. He should hold similar value heading into next season.
