C.J. McCollum scored 27 points on 10-for-21 shooting with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, on block and four three-pointers in 33 minutes in the win over the Spurs on Saturday night.

Fantasy Impact: McCollum is now averaging 22.8 points on the season with 4.8 assists, 4.1 rebounds, 3.5 three-pointers and 1.0 steals over 43 games. The veteran guard should be owned in all fantasy leagues.

Jusuf Nurkic scored 17 points on 8-for-15 shooting with nine rebounds, five assists and one block over 20 minutes as the Blazers beat the Spurs on Saturday night.

Nassir Little finished Saturday's win over the Spurs with six points on 3-for-4 shooting with three rebounds in 14 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: Little was able to get some playing time with Carmelo Anthony (ankle) ruled out and Derrick Jones Jr. picking up a DNP-CD. The second-year forward is seeing sporadic minutes and is not worth owning in fantasy.

Fantasy Impact: Over his last six games, Lillard is averaging 31.8 points, 9.0 assists, and 5.3 three-pointers made on 55% shooting. The All-Star guard should be owned in all fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Powell has been on fire this season, but so was Gary Trent Jr. when filling in for the injured C.J. McCollum. Powell figures to slot in as the starting small forward, while Trent could as well if Kyle Lowry is on the move. Stay tuned.
