Kyle: LaMelo's shooting efficiency remains a concern this season, but he's getting the job done everywhere else, so he's worth targeting as a buy-low in most places, especially dynasty. His 5 steals are a season-high and tie his career mark.
Josh: Really good game, but I don't trust it in 23 minutes. He isn't must roster
Sell High Kyle: This is a good line, but Jalen's minutes have been middling of late, so while he's fine to stream as needed, this is also a sell-high moment to consider. Jalen has recorded 4+ steals three times already this season, so at least keep tabs on him for specialist and conditional use.
Maybe Add 12 teams Josh: Looked much better here. Shooting is high and he did seem to hurt his knee a little, but he is improving a lot.
Must Add 12 teams Kyle: Ivey had one of the best games of his career, facilitating well and shooting great, including a perfect 4-for-4 from three. He should be on someone's roster in most leagues as at least a consistent streamer for assists and points. This could be treated as a sell-high moment in redrafts.
Josh: Started again and he is not a starter in quality. Nice boards and assists, but I wouldn't rush to add him.
Maybe Add 12 teams Kyle: Stewart started against the Hornets for matchup reasons, but with Cam Johnson starting at PF for the Suns, I wouldn't be surprised to see coach Casey go back to Bey and Bojan. Though that all may depend on if the Pistons rest anyone on the b2b, too.
Josh: Did his defensive thing, but it's not reliable.
Josh: Back to the bench, but kept up the good form. Ceiling does get limited in this role, but I don't know how to trust anything this team does game to game
Hold Kyle: Bey shifted to the bench for matchup
Josh: With Stewart starting, minutes ceiling is raised, which is a huge relief.
Kyle: It's nice to see Duren's minutes back up a bit, but this is also tied to Stewart starting at power forward, so Duren's ceiling may continue to be tempered at times when the Pistons matchup smaller. Coach Casey recently said the lineup would be fluid the rest of the season, so more looks could be coming, especially if rests happen on the b2b.
Sell High Kyle: Bojan continues to be worth considering as a sell-high, as even if he doesn't get traded, there's a good chance he'd be rested more down the stretch. This b2b might be a barometer if he ends up getting a surprise rest Saturday.
Josh: Got a shot at backup minutes today, but likely goes back out of rotation next game
Kyle: Richards got the night's backup center minutes over Mark for some reason. Coach Clifford could argue it was a matchup choice, but it certainly seems like a team trying to showcase a player they would like to trade instead of a player they plan to keep and use more down the stretch.
Josh: A fringe 12 team guy, but I don't really see how it maintains all season
Stream Kyle: If Burk plays on the b2b Saturday, he'll be worth considering as a stream.
Josh: Surprisingly played the b2b, but they still won't givre him 30 minutes. Probably is a 12 team guy, but it's only backend with these limitations.
Kyle: Hayward played on the b2b, which is a good sign, but his minutes remain muted as the team is seemingly trying to keep Hayward healthy while looking for trades to move him.
Josh: Hold until the deadline, because these minutes aren't enough.
Hold Kyle: Hayes is going to be OK to cut loose by some teams that have other good flier and streaming options, but with another game Saturday, he should generally be held through there, as the Pistons could rest some guys or use a smaller look against the Suns.
Droppable 12 teams Josh: I know a few people added him in standard leagues, but he was never a guy to use.
Watch Kyle: Diallo was back in action after missing the previous game with an illness. He got decent minutes but wasn't as productive as recently. I wouldn't be chasing him hard beyond deeper leagues, but he deserves being aware of for at least conditional streaming.
Kyle: Short minutes as the Pistons went big. Don't be surprised if Livers plays more against the smaller Suns on Saturday.
Hold Josh: Don't drop him. This was one of the random games where Richards plays as the backup and I expect Williams back next game. If Plumlee is traded, it could easily be a 24/24 split, but that's all Williams would need.
Kyle: If you recently added Mark as a luxury stash ahead of the trade deadline, he's fine to keep holding, but don't be surprised if the backup center minutes are jerked around more. If you were just streaming and can't afford to hold, he's OK to drop as needed to in redrafts.
Josh: The inconsistency here is maddening. Makes him hard to roster, but I think you still have to hold.
Buy Low Kyle: Another awful shooting night and moment to try buying low, as Washington's minutes are too huge to not try buying low on if available.
