2/28/2015 Isaiah Thomas, PG
Thomas scored a season-high 28 points and the Boston Celtics recovered from a 16-point third-quarter deficit to defeat the Charlotte Hornets 106-98 on Friday night.

Analysis: Thomas is averaging 22.3 points in his first four games with Boston despite shooting a subpar 39.3 percent.
2/28/2015 Mo Williams, G
Williams had 31 points in a 106-98 loss to Boston on Friday night.

Analysis: Williams is averaging 23.5 points in four games since joining the Charlotte Hornets after a trade with Minnesota on Feb. 10.
2/28/2015 Marcin Gortat, C
Gortat scored 16 points and added 17 rebounds Saturday.

Analysis: Gortat has gobbled up 67 rebounds in his last five games so he is on a hot streak.
2/28/2015 Hassan Whiteside, C
Whiteside stunned the fantasy world yet again Saturday.

Analysis: Whiteside finished with 14 points and tied a season high with 24 rebounds to give him 13 double-doubles. He's certainly not bad luck for your fantasy team.
2/28/2015 O.J. Mayo, G
Mayo returned Saturday.

Analysis: Mayo missed two games with right hamstring soreness.
2/28/2015 Nick Young, G-F
Young is out with a swollen left knee.

Analysis: Young hasn't played since last Sunday's overtime win over Boston in which his raucous and immature post-game celebration was shown on Jimmy Kimmel's program and frowned upon by the legendary Kobe Bryant.
2/28/2015 Greg Monroe, F-C
Monroe had 28 points and 13 rebounds in Friday's double-overtime loss to New York.

Analysis: Monroe has totaled a whopping 42 boards in his last three games.
2/28/2015 Enes Kanter, C
Kanter was not in the lineup Friday night against the Trail Blazers because of a right thigh contusion.

Analysis: Thunder coach Scott Brooks said it not certain how long Kanter will be out. Brooks believed the injury occurred in the second half of Thursday night's 117-113 overtime loss in Phoenix. The 6-foot-11 Kanter is averaging 14 points and 7.9 rebounds. He was acquired along with Steve Novak from the Utah Jazz in a trade at the deadline last week.
2/28/2015 Andre Drummond, F-C
Drummond had 21 points and 15 rebounds in Friday's 121-115 double-overtime loss to New York.

Analysis: Drummond is averaging 18.5 points and 15.3 boards over the last four games, up from his season marks of 13.0 and 13.0.
2/28/2015 Tony Parker, PG
Parker began to break of his recent slump Friday night as he finished with 19 points, five rebounds and four assists.

Analysis: He made 3 of 21 shots over his previous three games so exercise caution with the aging Parker.
2/28/2015 Ray McCallum, PG
McCallum scored 20 points Friday.

Analysis: McCallum has talent and it is beginning to show. He entered with an effective field-goal percentage of 46.9 that needs to get better.
2/28/2015 Ben McLemore, SG
McLemore scored 21 points Friday.

Analysis: McLemore has some talent and is starting to get comfortable though he won't help you in rebounds or assists.
2/28/2015 LaMarcus Aldridge, F-C
Aldridge had 29 points and 16 rebounds Friday night.

Analysis: Aldridge posted his second straight double-double ahead of Sunday's game with the Kings.
2/28/2015 Russell Westbrook, PG
Westbrook turned in his third straight triple-double Friday.

Analysis: Westbrook, who fell and hit his face on teammate Andre Roberson's knee in the final seconds, had 40 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists. There was no immediate word on his condition so fantasy owners may have to sweat that out since 'Russ' is carrying the team with astounding, sensational, jaw-dropping highlight after highlight.
2/28/2015 Damian Lillard, PG
Lillard scored 29 points Friday.

Analysis: Lillard hadn't topped 20 in his four previous games so this time, fantasy owners got they money's worth.
2/28/2015 Kyle Lowry, PG
Lowry saw his woes continue in Friday's 113-89 loss to Golden State.

Analysis: Lowry finished with four points on 1 of 7 from the floor. He's averaging just 12.0 points on 27.8 percent shooting over the last four games.
2/28/2015 Kevin Love, F-C
Love finished with 17 points on 6-of-19 shooting in Friday's loss at Indiana.

Analysis: Love appeared headed for a big night with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving both out, but he couldn't find his form. The All-Star forward is shooting just 39.4 percent on the road this season.
2/28/2015 George Hill, G
Hill recorded his first triple-double with 15 points, 10 rebounds and a career-high 12 assists in Friday's win over Cleveland.

Analysis: It was a big night for Hill aside from going 4 of 15 from the floor. He's shooting just 31.3 percent in the last four games.
2/28/2015 Matthew Dellavedova, G
Dellavedova had 14 points, a career-high 10 rebounds and five assists while starting in place of the injured Kyrie Irving on Friday.

Analysis: Dellavedova filled the box score, but he also hurt fantasy owners by going 5 of 18 from the field. He's shooting a disappointing 35.5 percent, down from last season's mark of 41.2.
2/28/2015 James Harden, G-F
Harden had a difficult time shooting again Friday, scoring 15 while going 4 for 15 in a win over Brooklyn, though he racked up 12 assists.

Analysis: Though Harden is shooting 31.3 percent over his last three games, he has also averaged 10.7 assists in that span to record three straight double-doubles.
