Walter Tavares
Hawks' Walter Tavares: Recalled by Hawks

News: Tavares was recalled from the D-League on Friday, Chris Vivlamore of the AJC reports.

After being assigned to the D-League earlier in the week, Tavares was recalled by the Hawks on Friday--the first day of the All-Star break. Whether on not he will stick with the Hawks through the break remains to be seen, but there could be reserve minutes available if Tiago Splitter undergoes surgery on his injured hip.

Joel Anthony
Pistons' Joel Anthony: Playing sparingly
Joel Anthony, C, DET
2/12/2016
News: Anthony has not seen the court in 14 of the last 15 games.

The veteran was brought in last season to be an end-of-the-bench reserve forward and that's exactly the role he's filled again this season, appearing in only 13 games and logging an average of just 4.0 minutes in those contests. Barring multiple injuries or some sort of bizarre development, don't expect Anthony to make much of a dent in any fantasy formats in 2015-16.

JaVale McGee
Mavericks' JaVale McGee: Seeing reduced role
JaVale McGee, C, DAL
2/12/2016
News: McGee has played sparingly over the Mavs' recent stretch of games leading up to the All-Star break.

During a three-week stretch in January, McGee was routinely seeing double-digit minutes as a backup center, but he's since returned to a more modest role, playing 10 minutes or fewer in each of the last eight contests. The 28-year-old was a DNP-CD on Tuesday against the Jazz, suggesting that the Mavericks are comfortable playing Zaza Pachulia (41 minutes Tuesday) big minutes with Dwight Powell (12 minutes) as the small-ball backup center, even against a Jazz team featuring Rudy Gobert.

Al Horford
Hawks' Al Horford: Added to All-Star Game
Al Horford, C, ATL
2/12/2016
News: Horford will replace the injured Chris Bosh (calf) on the Eastern Conference roster for Sunday's All-Star Game in Toronto, Sports Illustrated reports.

Bosh is the second Eastern Conference player to drop out due to injury after Chicago's Jimmy Butler (knee) was replaced earlier in the week by teammate Pau Gasol. It will be the second consecutive All-Star bid for Horford, whose numbers are very similar to those he put up in 2014-15. The 29-year-old enters the weekend averaging 15.3 points, 6.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.5 blocks while shooting 50.7 percent from the field for an Atlanta team that sits in fourth place in the East, 8.5 games back of first-place Cleveland.

 Nene
Wizards' Nene Hilario: Scores 14 in loss
Nene, C, WAS
2/12/2016
News: Hilario contributed 14 points (4-8 FG, 6-6 FT), six rebounds, and two assists in 23 minutes in Thursday's 99-92 loss to the Bucks.

Hilario had one of his better performances of the season on Thursday after missing two games last weekend with a calf injury. The 33-year-old will hope to remain healthy the remainder of the season after only playing in 28 games the first half of the season.

Steven Adams
Thunder's Steven Adams: Grabs six boards in blowout win
Steven Adams, C, OKC
2/12/2016
News: Adams finished with eight points and six rebounds in Thursday's win over the Pelicans.

Adams has been limited to 20 and 25 minutes in each of his last two games, respectively, both of which have been blowout Thunder victories. The center has shared time with Serge Ibaka and Enes Kanter throughout the season, but his minutes have consistently rested in the mid-to-high 20s on most nights, and he closed the month of January with averages of 9.3 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 26.1 minutes. Look for Adams to remain in a similar role going forward, barring an injury or roster shake-up at the deadline.

Analysis: 

Enes Kanter
Thunder's Enes Kanter: Double-doubles in Thursday victory
Enes Kanter, C, OKC
2/12/2016
News: Kanter went for 11 points (3-6 FG. 5-8 3Pt), 12 rebounds, an assist and a block over 27 minutes in Thursdays 121-95 victory over the Pelicans.

The 23-year-old has rattled off seven consecutive double-digit scoring performances heading into the All-Star break, and also posted two double-doubles in the last three games. Coach Billy Donovan has opted to keep Kanter in a mid-to-high-usage bench role this season, with the five-year veteran and starter Steven Adams splitting the time virtually down the middle on most nights. This appears to suit Kanter well, as he lacks Adams' defensive prowess but offers more on offense, making him an effective complement and providing the Thunder's second unit with a bit more scoring punch. Kanter heads into the All-Star break with averages of 11.9 points and 7.7 rebounds over 20.8 minutes per game so far this season.

Analysis: 

Greg Monroe
Bucks' Greg Monroe: Comes off bench again on Thursday
Greg Monroe, C, MIL
2/12/2016
News: Monroe scored 12 points (5-13 FG, 2-4 FT) to go along with nine rebounds, two steals and an assist in 33 minutes on Thursday in a win against the Wizards.

Monroe came off the bench on Thursday for the second game in a row but didn't see as much success as his last game against the Celtics, where he had 29 points and 12 rebounds. Granted, a lot of centers have been hammering the Celtics down low, but Monroe was just mediocre tonight. The real disappointment is Bucks coach Jason Kidd, as he really can't seem to make up his mind each night with the rotation. Hopefully over the All-Star break, Kidd attends one of those spiritual enlightenment courses and realizes that Monroe should be his starting center.

Analysis: 

Miles Plumlee
Bucks' Miles Plumlee: Will start Thursday
Miles Plumlee, C, MIL
2/11/2016
News: Plumlee will draw a second consecutive start at center on Thursday against the Wizards, C.F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

In Tuesday's contest versus the Celtics, Plumlee saw just 18 minutes compared to 29 from Greg Monroe, so despite his designation as a starter, Plumlee will still likely play second fiddle to Monroe. Look for Plumlee to see similar minutes again on Thursday.

Analysis: 

Mason Plumlee
Trail Blazers' Mason Plumlee: Scores eight in win
Mason Plumlee, C, POR
2/11/2016
News: Plumlee contributed eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and a steal in 16 minutes in Wednesday's 116-103 win over the Rockets.

Plumlee has seen low minutes as of late and hasn't had a double-digit rebound performance since Jan. 29. Ed Davis could see more minutes in the second half of the season if Plumlee continues to stumble.
