PF/SF Rudy Gay ($145K) has fit in nicely with his new team, averaging 33.5 fantasy points per game in two outings so far. He had 29 points (11-of-23 shooting) with four rebounds, three steals and two assists in 42 minutes Sunday against Miami. Celtics PF/SF Jeff Green ($87K) has been useful lately, going for 51 total fantasy points over his past two games. Raptors swingman DeMar DeRozan ($134K) has been earning his salary lately, posting 22 or more fantasy points in seven consecutive games, including 30 or more in each of the past three.
Indiana Pacers at Philadelphia 76ers 7:00pm ET
76ers C Spencer Hawes ($118K) has been either great or bad lately. He posted 35 fantasy points last Wednesday against Washington, and 38 fantasy points Monday against Orlando. However, sandwiched in between those games is a nine-point fantasy bomb. He is facing a tremendous defensive club from Indiana, so temper expectations a bit. Swingman Nick Young ($116K) has managed 26 or more fantasy points in three consecutive outings, and he is averaging 26.8 fantasy points per game over his past six appearances. Pacers PF Tyler Hansbrough ($62K) might be a nice, last roster spot addition if you want to spend heavily elsewhere. He has 10 or more fantasy points in each of his past four games, averaging 16.0 fantasy points per game during the solid span. Not bad at this price level.
New York Knicks at Washington Wizards 7:00pm ET
Knicks swingman J.R. Smith ($128K) has been doing damage from behind the arc lately, rolling up 17 3-pointers over his past three games. He has gone for 21 or more fantasy points in five consecutive outings. Wizards PF/C Nene Hilario ($107K) is a good buy at this price level. He has 23 or more fantasy points in four straight games, and at least 20 fantasy points in eight of his past nine. Wizards PF/C Kevin Seraphin ($71K) has been up and down this season. Lately, he is in one of his down periods. Seraphin has averaged just 8.3 fantasy points per game over his past four outings, and he is 2-of-10 from the floor in the past two. Avoid.
Los Angeles Clippers at Orlando Magic 7:00pm ET
Clippers SG/PG Eric Bledsoe ($123K) continues to improve his stock. He has 72 total fantasy points over the past two games, and 18 or more fantasy points in eight straight games dating back to Jan. 21. Magic SG/PG E’Twaun Moore ($89K) moved into the starting lineup recently, and he hasn’t disappointed despite uneven results from the team overall. Moore had 24 fantasy points Monday in Philadelphia thanks to 24 points (9-of-17 shooting) with three rebounds and two assists in 37 minutes. Moore is averaging 21.0 fantasy points per game over the past three outings, which is strong production at this price level.
Charlotte Bobcats at Cleveland Cavaliers 7:00pm ET
Bobcats PF/C Byron Mullens ($122K) (ankle) looked a little rusty in his return to the lineup Monday in Miami, but he poured in 12 points (5-of-14 shooting) with nine rebounds, two steals and a blocked shot in 28 minutes off the bench. Mullens finished with 26 fantasy points, which is solid production at this price level. He’ll only improve as he gets more comfortable. Cavaliers PF/C Tyler Zeller ($88K) has 15 or more fantasy points in eight of his past nine games. Bobcats SG/PG Ramon Sessions ($110K) has 25 or more fantasy points in three straight outings, making him a solid mid-level play, especially against a subpar defensive team.
Memphis Grizzlies at Atlanta Hawks 7:30pm ET
Hawks PG Jeff Teague ($127K) is on a roll lately, going for 20 or more fantasy points in five straight games, including three outings with 32 or more fantasy points. He could struggle against a strong Memphis defense, although he had no problem posting 32 fantasy points against a sturdy Indiana D. PF/C Al Horford ($167K) hasn’t shown many ill-effects from a hamstring injury which slowed him near the end of last month. He has 27 or more fantasy points in four of his past five games since returning from injury. Grizzlies SG/PG Jerryd Bayless ($108K) has posted 26 or more fantasy points in five of his past six games.
Houston Rockets at Miami Heat 7:30pm ET
Heat PF/C Chris Bosh ($131K) has rolled up 64 fantasy points over his past two games, but both have been against awful scoring defenses from Toronto and Charlotte. However, Houston has a shabby defense, too, so another 30-plus fantasy points is easily attainable. Rockets C Omer Asik ($126K) is a nice value at this price level, as he has 24 or more fantasy points in five straight outings. Rockets PF Patrick Patterson ($97K) is a great mid-level play. He has averaged 24.3 fantasy points per game over the past three outings, going for 20 or more fantasy points in each game.
Brooklyn Nets at Detroit Pistons 7:30pm ET
Pistons PG Jose Calderon ($94K) finally had his work visa issue resolved, making his debut Monday against New York. He went for 19 fantasy points in 27 minutes, hitting an efficient seven of his 12 field goal attempts for 15 points, three assists and a rebound. Expect 20-25 fantasy points in this one, which isn’t bad production at this salary level. Nets swingman Joe Johnson ($108K) has been consistent lately, going for 21 or more fantasy points in four of the past five, and eight of the past 10. Pistons PF Jason Maxiell ($75K) has been a little up and down recently, but he is still averaging 16.0 fantasy points per game over his past three.
Phoenix Suns at New Orleans Hornets 8:00pm ET
Suns C Marcin Gortat ($118K) is good for 21 or more fantasy points in seven of his past eight games, making him a very nice mid-level play at the center position. PF/C Luis Scola ($114K) is averaging 12.3 ppg with 9.7 rpg and 2.3 apg over his past three outings. The equates to 27.7 fantasy points per game. Hornets C Robin Lopez ($105K) might have a little extra jump in his step against his former team. He has played fairly well lately, averaging 24.3 fantasy points per contest over the past four.
Golden State Warriors at Oklahoma City Thunder 8:00pm ET
Warriors C Andrew Bogut ($110K) (ankle) did not suffer any type of setback Tuesday against Houston, but he is still not expected to be available in this back-to-back situation. He has averaged 23.0 fantasy points per game over his past three, and is a nice play next time out, however. C Festus Ezeli ($55K) might be a sneaky play with Bogut out of action. He and F Carl Landry ($93K) are likely to pick up the slack with Bogut resting. Thunder SG Kevin Martin ($94K) has averaged 19.3 fantasy points per game over the past three outings.
Portland Trail Blazers at Dallas Mavericks 8:30pm ET
Mavericks PF Dirk Nowitzki ($123K) (leg) was back from a leg injury Monday against OKC, but he managed to hit just three of his 11 field goal chances, finishing with 17 fantasy points. Still, he had 21 or more fantasy points before his latest injury, and is a must-start at this low price level. Trail Blazers swingman Wesley Matthews ($113K) was back from a one-game absence, and he didn’t appear to skip a beat. He went for 27 fantasy points against Minnesota Monday, and is a solid play at this price. Mavs PF/C Elton Brand ($80K) isn’t in the starting lineup these days, but he is still productive in a limited role. He has averaged 17.7 fantasy points per game over the past three games.
San Antonio Spurs at Minnesota Timberwolves 9:00pm ET (ESPN)
Timberwolves PF Dante Cunningham ($110K) has really been locked in over the past two games, totaling 56 fantasy points during the stretch. He can be a nice mid-level pick-up, even against an above-average Spurs scoring defense. PG J.J. Barea ($92K) has posted 19 or more fantasy points in six of his past eight games. He rebounded from a couple of uneven performances with 24 fantasy points last time out against Portland. Spurs swingman Danny Green ($89K) has 49 fantasy points over his past two games.
Milwaukee Bucks at Utah Jazz 9:00pm ET
Bucks PF/C Larry Sanders ($130K) (hip) was forced to get X-rays after Tuesday’s game at Denver due to a hip injury, and he is likely to miss this game. C Samuel Dalembert ($79K) blew up for 51 fantasy points against the Nuggets thanks to a career-best 35 points and 12 rebounds in just 27 minutes. He’ll certainly be a hot addition Wednesday. Jazz PF Paul Millsap ($133K) has 30 or more fantasy points in three of his past four games, and he has hit six or more field goals in five of his past six outings.
