|Young scored 19 on 8-of-12 shooting in Wednesday's loss at New Orleans.
Analysis: Young has been solid in three games for Brooklyn, averaging 14.0 points on 58.1 percent shooting. You should expect some regression, though, considering he was shooting 45.1 percent previously this season.
|2/26/2015||Quincy Pondexter, G-F|
|Pondexter scored a career-high 25 points on 9-of-13 shooting and matched a career high with four 3-pointers in Wednesday's win against the Nets.

|2/26/2015||Tyreke Evans, G|
|Evans logged his second straight double-double and matched his career high with his 13th of the season, recording 15 points and 11 assists in Wednesday's win versus Brooklyn.

|2/26/2015||Joe Johnson, G-F|
|Johnson scored 21 and was 3 of 5 from deep in Wednesday's loss to the Pelicans.
Analysis: Johnson is riding a nice shooting stretch, averaging 16.5 points on 49.0 percent shooting, including a 42.0 mark from 3-point range, over his last 11 games. He had been shooting 42.7 and 36.2 percent previously.

|2/26/2015||Mo Williams, G|
|Williams scored 17 in Wednesday's win at Chicago.

|Kidd-Gilchrist put together his ninth double-double with 18 points and 12 rebounds in Wednesday's win at Chicago.
Analysis: Kidd-Gilchrist was 7 of 12 from the floor and has shot 50.0 percent or better in eight straight games now. He seems to be developing nicely after a relatively underwhelming first two seasons and could be a sneaky fantasy target for 2015-16.

|Beasley is with the Heat for a third time, signing a 10-day contract on Thursday with the team that drafted him with the No. 2 overall pick seven years ago.

|Love scored a team-high 24 points in Tuesday's 102-93 win at Detroit.
Analysis: It was a big night for Love, who matched a career high with eight made 3s on 14 attempts. While he's averaging a disappointing 16.9 points, Love is still finding ways to produce for fantasy owners.
|2/25/2015||Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, SG|

Analysis: Caldwell-Pope is averaging 19.8 points on 49.2 percent shooting over the last four games.
