Rockets' Eric Gordon: Registers 14 off bench Saturday

News: Gordon registered 14 points (5-13 FG, 4-10 3Pt), two assists, one rebound and two steals over 30 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 win over the Timberwolves.

Originally slated to start at shooting guard in place of Patrick Beverley (groin), Gordon moved to his usual bench role once the latter was determined well enough to go. Gordon still saw his usual allotment of playing time on the second unit, posting his eighth straight double-digit scoring effort. Lou Williams' introduction into the Rockets' backcourt rotation has been seamless with respect to Gordon's production over the last two games, a welcome sight for the latter's fantasy owners.

Lou Williams
Rockets' Lou Williams: Supplies bench-leading 17 points Saturday
Lou Williams, SG, HOU
3:00 AM
News: Williams supplied 17 points (4-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 7-9 FT), four assists and three steals over 26 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 win over the Timberwolves.

The change of scenery from Los Angeles to Houston hasn't slowed down Williams a bit, as he's averaged 22 points over 26.5 minutes in his two contests in a Rockets uniform. His playing time remains right in line with what he was regularly seeing with the Lakers, even as the Rockets find ways to incorporate fellow veteran sharpshooter Eric Gordon into the mix, allaying fears for fantasy owners of both players thus far.

Trevor Ariza
Rockets' Trevor Ariza: Pours in 15 in Saturday shootout
Trevor Ariza, SG, HOU
2:45 AM
News: Ariza poured in 15 points (3-8 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT) and added three rebounds, three assists and one steal over 32 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 win over the Timberwolves.

All of Ariza's non-free-throw scoring came from behind the arc, helping him hit double digits in the scoring column for the first time in the last four games. The 13-year veteran has been very reliable on his long-range shooting for his offensive contributions recently, as all but one of his baskets over the last three contests have come from downtown. His overall struggles from the floor have resulted in five consecutive contests where Ariza has shot 37.5 percent or lower, although he's been able to salvage those outings from a fantasy perspective with solid contributions in rebounds, assists and steals.

Jose Calderon
Lakers' Jose Calderon: Expected to join Warriors
Jose Calderon, PG, LAL
2:30 AM
News: Calderon and the Lakers are working on a buyout, and then his next move would be to take a physical and join the Warriors, according to a source, Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area reports.

The veteran fell out of the rotation with the Lakers, so it's unlikely he will have a huge impact with the defending Western Conference champions unless injuries occur. Calderon is basically just being added for depth in case of emergency and his fantasy appeal will remain limited to deeper leagues.

Briante Weber
Warriors' Briante Weber: Will be released by Warriors
Briante Weber, PG, GS
2:30 AM
News: The Warriors are planning on releasing Weber, head coach Steve Kerr confirmed Saturday, Anthony Slater of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Weber's roster spot is expected to be taken by veteran Jose Calderon once he and the Lakers negotiate a buyout. The deal will be contingent on Calderon passing a physical with the Warriors. Weber might latch on with another organization but his fantasy appeal is negligible.

Patrick Beverley
Rockets' Patrick Beverley: Chips in full stat line in Saturday win
Patrick Beverley, PG, HOU
2:10 AM
News: Beverley (groin) contributed 15 points (4-10 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven assists, four rebounds, three steals and one block over 29 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 win over the Timberwolves.

Beverley shook off his groin ailment to post his first double-digit scoring effort since Feb. 11, the Saturday before the All-Star break. He turned in another outstanding effort on the defensive end as well, tallying multiple steals for the second straight game and fourth over the last five. Beverley remains an inconsisent producer on the scoreboard, but typically makes up for it with robust returns in assists, rebounds and steals.

James Harden
Rockets' James Harden: Double-doubles in high-scoring win
James Harden, SG, HOU
2:00 AM
News: Harden produced 24 points (6-15 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 7-10 FT), 10 assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block over 35 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 win over the Timberwolves.

One look at the the Rockets' scoring haul and it would be natural to assume that Harden had one of his trademark scoring explosions, but the offensive contributions were distributed fairly evenly across the lineup. Harden's point total was still tops on the team, and he bounced back nicely from a 13-point tally against the Pelicans on Thursday. He also posted double-digit assists for the fourth straight contest, while his five three-pointers equaled his second-best total in that category in February.

Analysis: 

Ricky Rubio
Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio: Double-doubles in Saturday shootout
Ricky Rubio, PG, MIN
1:50 AM
News: Rubio went for 14 points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 11 assists, three rebounds and one steal over 32 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 loss to the Rockets.

The sixth-year pro was in his element Saturday, setting up his teammates for numerous scoring opportunities while posting double-digit assists for the fifth time in the last six games. Rubio managed double-digit scoring for the fourth time during that stretch as well, and he's now averaging a season-high 12.1 points and 10.5 dimes in February.

Dennis Schroder
Hawks' Dennis Schroder: Scores 11 points in 31 minutes off bench Saturday vs. Magic
Dennis Schroder, PG, ATL
1:20 AM
News: Schroder supplied 11 points (4-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight assists, five rebounds, and one block across 31 minutes during Saturday's 105-86 loss to the Magic.

Schroder came off the bench as punishment for being late for the team bus, but still ended up playing 31 minutes. He's been ice cold from beyond the arc over the past eight games, shooting 25.0 percent from three in the seven games leading up to Saturday's loss. The 23-year-old point guard has had bouts of inconsistency throughout the season, making him a high-risk high-reward DFS play, but his season averages of 17.5 points and 6.3 assists per game have made him a nice year-long fantasy option. He'll look to bounce back to form Monday against the Celtics.

Analysis: 

Kyle Korver
Cavaliers' Kyle Korver: Stays hot with 14 points off bench
Kyle Korver, SG, CLE
1:10 AM
News: Korver tallied 14 points (5-8 FG, 4-7 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists over 27 minutes in Saturday's 117-99 loss to the Bulls.

The move to Cleveand has rejuvenated Korver, who's now posted double-digit scoring efforts in 12 of the 21 games since his arrival. The 35-year-old is particularly thriving in February, having hit double digits in the scoring column in three consecutive contests, and eight of 10 outings during the month overall. The veteran sharpshooter has been white-hot with his shot, posting better than 60 percent success rates from both the field and three-point range, while draining multiple baskets from behind the arc in every February contest.
