DeAndre Jordan
Clippers' DeAndre Jordan: Game-high 18 rebounds Thursday
DeAndre Jordan, C, LAC

News: Jordan contributed 14 points (6-6 FG, 2-4 FT), 18 rebounds, two blocks and one assist across 35 minutes during Thursday's 97-95 loss to the Mavericks.

Despite opposing coach Rick Carlisle starting Nerlens Noel at center in an attempt to slow down Jordan, he still managed to snag 18 boards and didn't miss a shot on his way to 14 points. What Jordan lacks in free-throw percentage (49.0) and points per game (12.5), he makes up for in efficiency from the field -- knocking down 70.4 percent of his attempts. He should continue to garner 30 to 35 minutes per night and put up his season averages for the remainder of the season.

Raptors' Jonas Valanciunas: Struggles on offense Thursday

3/23/2017
News: Valanciunas tallied two points (0-2 FG, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds and two blocks across 21 minutes during Thursday's 101-84 victory over the Heat.

The combination of teammate DeMar DeRozan dropping 40 points and the tough defense of opponent center Hassan Whiteside led to a lackluster performance by Valanciunas on the offensive end -- missing both of his attempts from the field and committing three turnovers. That being said, he cleaned the glass and protected the rim well in limited minutes, providing fantasy value in those categories. He's rebounded well over the past eight games, grabbing 9.6 boards across just 24.8 minutes per contest.

Hassan Whiteside
Heat's Hassan Whiteside: Plays well, sprains ankle Thursday
Hassan Whiteside, C, MIA
3/23/2017
News: Whiteside (finger) tallied 16 points (6-10 FG, 4-5 FT), 14 rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 30 minutes before exiting with a left ankle sprain during Thursday's 101-84 loss to the Raptors.

Despite playing with limited use of his right hand due to needing 13 stitches in his finger, Whiteside played up to his season averages. He also sprained his ankle during the game, though apparently believes it's not serious enough to keep him sidelined for Sunday's tilt against the Celtics, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Regardless, he should be considered questionable for Sunday until further notice.

Willy Hernangomez
Knicks' Willy Hernangomez: Will start Thursday
Willy Hernangomez, C, NY

News: Hernangomez will draw the start for Thursday's matchup against the Trail Blazers, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

With Lance Thomas (hip) sidelined, Kristaps Porzingis will be moved to the power forward slot, opening up a position for Hernangomez in the starting five. The 22-year-old rookie out of Spain has started 11 games this season, averaging 10.0 points and 9.7 rebounds across 25.8 minutes per game.

David Lee
Spurs' David Lee: Will play Thursday

News: Lee (foot) will play during Thursday's tilt against the Grizzlies, Paul Garcia of Project Spurs reports.

After holding Lee out of Tuesday's tilt against the Timberwolves due to a sore foot, the Spurs have cleared him to take the floor for Thursday's matchup. He's averaging 8.2 points and 5.7 rebounds across 18.7 minutes per game since the All-Star break, and will likely see similar run against the Grizzlies.

Omer Asik
Pelicans' Omer Asik: Out Friday vs. Rockets
Omer Asik, C, NO
3/23/2017
News: Asik has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Rockets.

Asik is still dealing with the lingering effects of a bacterial infection and will miss yet another game, as he's been sidelined since the All-Star break. He's yet to be given any timetable for a return and should continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis. His next opportunity to take the court will be Sunday against the Nuggets.

Rudy Gobert
Jazz's Rudy Gobert: Scores career-high 35 points in Wednesday's win
Rudy Gobert, C, UTA
3/23/2017
News: Gobert registered 35 points (13-14 FG, 9-12 FT), 13 rebounds, four blocks, one assist, and one steal in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 108-101 victory versus the Knicks.

Gobert was incredibly efficient, following up Monday's career high in blocks (eight) with a career best in scoring. Gobert has scored in double figures during 13 of 14 appearances since the All-Star break, this after finishing with less than 10 points nine times in his first 57 games of 2016-17.

Willie Cauley-Stein
Kings' Willie Cauley-Stein: Swats four shots in Wednesday's loss
Willie Cauley-Stein, C, SAC
3/23/2017
News: Cauley-Stein posted 10 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 FT) with seven rebounds, two assists and four blocked shots across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 116-98 loss against the Bucks.

Cauley-Stein was busy in the middle with Kosta Koufos (rest) inactive, clogging up the middle while serving as a defensve force. He has amassed nine blocked shots (2.25 BPG) over his past four outings. The former University of Kentucky standout has a bright future and he has really benefitted the most since the trade of DeMarcus Cousins to the Pelicans last month.

Spencer Hawes
Bucks' Spencer Hawes: Hits double digits in Wednesday's road win
Spencer Hawes, C, MIL
3/23/2017
News: Hawes posted 10 points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT) with three rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots over 18 minutes in Wednesday's 116-98 win against the Bucks.

Hawes totaled 30 minutes over his past nine games with three DNP-CDs, so don't get overly excited about this performance. It's a start, but he has a long way to go before he can be trusted by fantasy owners outside of the deepest leagues.

Analysis: 

Enes Kanter
Thunder's Enes Kanter: Goes for game-high 24 points in 20 minutes
Enes Kanter, C, OKC
3/23/2017
News: Kanter recorded 24 points (8-9 FG, 8-9 FT), 11 rebounds, one steal and one block across 20 minutes during a 122-97 win over the 76ers on Wednesday.

Kanter was extremely efficient in totaling a game-high 24 points in just 20 minutes. The 24 points marked his highest scoring total since Jan. 15. He was also able to total his second consecutive double-double in the win. Kanter should be a reliable source of points, rebounds and percentages to close out the regular season.
