Who’s in fashion? Which rotations change? What’s the latest with notable injuries around the NBA?

Here’s a league overview of the most relevant news and ratings for the 30 teams:


Atlanta Hawks

De’Andre Hunter has played well over the past four games, putting up 19.0 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 1.0 APG, and 1.0 SPG along the way. Hunter is available in 89% of ESPN leagues and should be listed in deeper formats. Next week, the Hawks will play four games.

Boston Celtics

Robert Williams III comes in at No. 20 on ESPN’s Player Rater and continues to be an integral part of the Celtics’ success. The Time Lord has averaged 10 PPG, 10.3 RPG, 2.3 APG, 1.3 SPG, and 3.0 BPG over the past six games and will likely be off the draft boards by the third round. next season.

brooklyn nets

Bruce Brown has averaged 14 PPG, 6.0 RPG, 3.1 APG and 1.7 SPG in 31 minutes over the last 11 games. Brown is available in 90% of ESPN leagues, but his time in the fantasy spotlight will likely end when Ben Simmons makes his Nets debut. Brooklyn only has three games on its schedule in each of the next two weeks, which is another factor to weigh.

Charlotte Hornets

PJ Washington has averaged 12.4 PPG, 6.1 RPG, 2.0 APG, 1.0 SPG, and 1.0 BPG over his last 12 games. Washington is still available in 34.3% of ESPN leagues, and Gordon Hayward isn’t expected to return anytime soon. Washington doesn’t score a ton of points, but his ability to provide fantastic managers with comprehensive stat lines makes him worth it.

Chicago Bulls

Coby White has thrived as a streamer thanks to the Bulls’ shorthanded backcourt. In fact, he’s averaged 15.5 PPG, 4.2 RPG, and 4.0 APG in 31 minutes over his last 12 games. The former lottery pick is still available in 79% of ESPN leagues and ranks just in the top 150 category formats this year.

Cleveland Cavaliers

On Tuesday night, Darius Garland joined LeBron James as the only players in Cavaliers history to average 25 points and 10 assists in five games. His play peaks at the perfect time for fantasy managers looking to cement their playoff positioning. For the season, Garland put up 21.0 PPG, 8.2 APG, 2.6 3PG and 1.2 SPG while posting a very impressive 48.0 FG% and 91.0 FT%.

Dallas Mavericks

Dorian Finney-Smith (available in 74.8% of ESPN leagues) has averaged 16.0 PPG and 6.2 RPG and is shooting 56% from the floor in his last six games. For the season, the 28-year-old’s 10.6 PPG, 1.9 APG and 1.1 SPG are all career highs.

Denver nuggets

The only other players besides Nikola Jokic to average 35 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists in three games are Wilt Chamberlain, Oscar Robertson and Elgin Baylor. It’s pretty good company for the veteran center who presents a pretty solid case to win the most valuable player award this season.

Detroit Pistons

Isaiah Stewart will be assessed within a week after undergoing tests on Tuesday which revealed a bone bruise in his right knee. This puts Marvin Bagley III (available in 56% of ESPN leagues) on the streaming radar. Over the past three games, he’s averaged 16.0 PPG, 8.0 RPG, 1.3 APG, and 1.0 SPG in 28.5 minutes.

Golden State Warriors

After the All-Star Break, only a few rookies have been as impressive as Jonathan Kuminga. He’s averaged 18.3 PPG, 5.0 RPG, and 2.0 APG in 28 MPG over the last three games. Kuminga is still available in 90.6% of ESPN leagues and continues to be a great streamer while Draymond Green is out. This week, James Wiseman (knee) was cleared to play two G-League games. His return is scheduled for the end of March.

Houston Rockets

Kevin Porter Jr. can be avoided by some fantastic managers due to his 40% field goal percentage and penchant for turnovers. However, Porter has averaged 16 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 6.1 APG, and 1.1 SPG over his last 10 games. It is available in 34.3% of ESPN leagues.

Indiana Pacers

Jalen Smith has been solid over the past 10 games, averaging 13.5 PPG and 8.3 RPG in 26.6 MPG. It should also be mentioned that during this period, Isaiah Jackson averaged 3.7 fouls per game, which negatively impacted his minutes. Smith is available in 91% of ESPN leagues. It may be a good idea to pick it up.

LA Clippers

Look no further than Luke Kennard (available in 95.4% of ESPN leagues) if you want points and triples in a deeper format. Over the past nine games, he’s averaged 12.4 PPG and 3.4 3PG. Kawhi Leonard reportedly underwent rigorous pre-game training on Tuesday, although it’s unclear whether he will return this year.

Los Angeles Lakers

Malik Monk, who is available in 83% of ESPN leagues, has played well over the past five games averaging 15.6 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 3.6 APG and 2.0 SPG in 35 MPG. Additionally, he has completed 14 triples in that span and with the Lakers having another four-game week next week, he should be added to the rosters.

Memphis Grizzlies

Recent games have seen the Grizzlies blast their opponents, lowering the fantasy ceiling for some of their best players. The Grizzlies have now won 12 games by 20 or more points this season, trailing only the Suns (13) and Jazz (13) for the most such wins in the league. The Grizzlies have won 45 or more games for the first time since the 2014-15 season.

miami heat

Lowry has struggled since returning from a four-game absence for personal reasons. However, on Wednesday night against the Suns, he recorded his 16th game this season with 10 or more assists, which is the most since Dwyane Wade hit that mark in the 2008-09 campaign. The Miami Heat are 10-5 this season with at least 10 assists from Lowry.

Milwaukee dollars

Wednesday night against the Hawks, Giannis Antetokounmpo played his 19th career game with 40 points and 10 rebounds. He is the second player in the Bucks franchise with multiple such games. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has 53 such matches. Antetokounmpo’s positive momentum is set to continue against the struggling Warriors on Saturday.

Minnesota Wolves

Wednesday night against the Thunder, D’Angelo Russell didn’t have a huge stat line. Despite this, he did not further damage his hamstring injury. Russell has hit two or more triples in 12 straight games. Also, with 27 assists in his last two games, he has become more of a distributor.

New Orleans Pelicans

Fantasy managers can count on Herbert Jones to contribute at all levels. In his last five games, he averaged 10.0 PPG, 3.6 RPG, 2.2 APG, 2.0 SPG, and 1.0 BPG in 30 minutes. This makes Jones a good option for deeper formats.

New York Knicks

In the last eight games, Immanuel Quickley has been excellent. The former first round averaged 16 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 3.4 APG, and 1.0 SPG. Could this lead to Tom Thibodeau using Quickley as the Knicks’ starting point guard instead of Alec Burks? That remains to be seen, but it is possible. Quickley is available in 94.5% of ESPN leagues.

Oklahoma City Thunder

Aleksej Pokusevski has averaged 12 PPG, 7.0 RPG and 3.0 APG in 26.4 MPG over the past four games. With Pokusevski available in 94% of ESPN leagues, now is a good time to add him, especially in deeper formats. For the remainder of the season, he will likely continue to be used by the Thunder, who are shorthanded with Luguentz Dort (shoulder) now out for the season.

Orlando Magic

After a fast start to the season, Mo Bamba’s minutes and statistical output have declined in the 29 games he has played in 2022; it averages 10 PPG and 7.3 RPG in 23.3 MPG. On the other hand, Wendell Carter Jr. has thrived so far in 2022, putting up 17 PPG and 11 RPG at 30.7 MPG. Carter is still available in 14% of ESPN leagues.

Philadelphia 76ers

Danny Green will miss a week with a finger laceration, putting Georges Niang (available in 98.4% of ESPN leagues) on the streaming radar. It is available in 98.4% of ESPN leagues. Niang is averaging 16.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists per 40 minutes.

Phoenix Suns

Cameron Payne has recorded three double-doubles in his last four games. Moreover, he has registered 54 assists in five games since returning from injury. Even still, Payne remains available in 76% of ESPN leagues. Chris Paul is out for the rest of the fantasy season, so Payne will have as many minutes as possible.

Portland Trail Blazers

Stop what you’re doing and go get Anfernee Simons. Damian Lillard is unlikely to return this season, so Simons remains the Trail Blazers’ top fantasy option. Over the past 10 games, Simons has averaged 25.4 PPG, 2.6 RPG and 5.1 APG in 34.3 minutes. His quad injury does not appear to be serious and he is available in 39% of ESPN leagues.

Sacramento Kings

Over the past two months, De’Aaron Fox has played exceptionally well. In fact, the last time he recorded less than 20 points was on January 16. Since that game, he’s averaged 6.6 APG, 4.4 RPG, and 1.0 SPG while shooting 51.7% from the field with 29% usage.

San Antonio Spurs

Considering Devin Vassell’s ability to contribute at all levels in all statistical categories, it’s surprising that he isn’t listed in more leagues, especially the deeper ones. He is available in 87% of ESPN leagues and over the last 14 games he has averaged 12.6 PPG, 4.2 RPG, 3.0 APG, 1.4 SPG and 0.6 BPG in 29.6 MPG.

Toronto Raptors

It must have come as a relief to Fantasy managers to learn that Fred VanVleet (21.5 PPG, 4.5 RPG and 6.8 APG this season) would return to the lineup against Spurs after a five-game absence. However, the news is not all good from Toronto; Gary Trent Jr. remains in a slump. This month, Trent is shooting 28.6% from the field.

Utah Jazz

In his last two games, Bojan Bogdanovic has averaged 28 points, 7.5 3-pointers and 3.5 assists. Currently, it is available in 38.6% of ESPN leagues. Bogdanovic has 19 triples in his last three games, the most of any Jazz player in a three-game span, and the Jazz are playing four games in each of the next two weeks, making him a solid pick-up. in the leagues where it is available.

Washington Wizards

In the two games he has played since moving from the Mavericks to the Wizards, Kristaps Porzingis has averaged 22.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists. Kyle Kuzma benefits from Porzingis’ presence as she provides an additional offensive threat that opponents must deal with whenever they share time on the court.
