Date Player
2/27/2015 Russell Westbrook, PG
Westbrook scored 39 points in his 12th career triple-double Thursday.

Analysis: Westbrook missed his first eight shots and finished 12 of 38, 1 of 10 from 3-point range, but scored 31 in the second half and overtime of his fourth triple-double this season. He had 11 assists and 14 boards and will take his one-man show to Portland on Friday in what should be another spectacular night for NBA fans.
2/27/2015 Eric Bledsoe, G
Bledsoe scored 28 for the Suns on Thursday.

Analysis: Bledsoe just missed a triple-double with 13 rebounds and nine assists.
2/27/2015 Lance Thomas, G-F
Thomas has a strained left groin.

Analysis: There's no time table for Thomas' return, so consider him day-to-day.
2/27/2015 Markieff Morris, F-C
Morris scored 29 for the Suns on Thursday.

Analysis: This effort came out of left field after Morris stunk it up to total 19 points in his previous three efforts.
2/27/2015 Kyrie Irving, G
Irving will miss Friday's game at Indiana because of a strained left shoulder. He didn't travel with the team and an MRI confirmed the original diagnosis of a strain.

Analysis: Irving was hurt in the third quarter against the Warriors, though he returned in the fourth and finished with 24 points.
2/27/2015 LeBron James, F
James scored a season-high 42 on 15-of-25 shooting, grabbed 11 rebounds and had five assists in Thursday's win versus Golden State.

Analysis: James was 4 of 9 from deep after a rough seven-game 3-point shooting stretch that saw him go 9 for 40.
2/27/2015 Stephen Curry, G
Curry had an off night in Thursday's loss at Cleveland, scoring 18 on 5-of-17 shooting.

Analysis: It was his lowest scoring total in a span of 13 games. He still had six assists as well, though he also committed four turnovers.
2/27/2015 Klay Thompson, G-F
Thompson was held in check in Thursday's loss to the Cavaliers, scoring 13 on 5-of-13 shooting, though he was 3 of 5 from 3-point range.

Analysis: Thompson is slumping lately, shooting 37.2 percent over his last seven games, though he's still 18 of 46 (39.1 percent) from deep in that span.
2/27/2015 Pau Gasol, F-C
Gasol is out for Friday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves because of an illness, leaving the Chicago Bulls without two of their top players.

Analysis: Coach Tom Thibodeau confirmed at the shootaround that Gasol will not play. The 7-foot forward is averaging 18.4 points and 12.1 rebounds. The Bulls are also missing star point guard Derrick Rose, who is expected to be out four to six weeks after having surgery Friday to repair a medial meniscus tear in his right knee.
2/26/2015 Hassan Whiteside, C
Whiteside racked up another double-double in Wednesday's 93-90 overtime win at Orlando.

Analysis: Whiteside finished with 15 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks. He's averaging 14.6 points and 13.9 rebounds since Jan. 25 to rank second in the league in boards.
2/26/2015 Victor Oladipo, G
Oladipo had 13 points and a career-high 13 rebounds against Miami on Wednesday.

Analysis: Oladipo has only recorded double-digit boards five times in 129 career games.
2/26/2015 Evan Turner, G-F
Turner recorded his first career triple-double in Wednesday's 115-94 win over New York.

Analysis: Turner finished with 10 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists. He's averaging an impressive 8.0 dimes over the last eight games, more than double his career mark of 3.4.
2/26/2015 Jae Crowder, F
Crowder had another nice game with 18 points off the bench against New York on Wednesday.

Analysis: Crowder is averaging 17.3 points over his last three games.
2/26/2015 Kyle Korver, G-F
Korver finished with 16 points in Wednesday's 104-87 win over Dallas.

Analysis: Korver shot 4 of 10 from beyond the arc, moving him one past Stephen Curry for the NBA lead with 171 made 3s.
2/26/2015 Thaddeus Young, F
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.

Analysis: Don't expect too many outbursts like this from Pondexter, who had only scored in double digits 10 times in his previous 49 games.
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.

Analysis: Evans is stuck in an awful shooting stretch, going 21 for 63 (33.3 percent) over his last five games, but he's also averaging 9.0 assists in that span.
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 Pau Gasol, F-C
Gasol had 25 points and 13 rebounds in Wednesday's loss to Charlotte, recording his 22nd double-double in 25 games.

Analysis: Gasol continues to enjoy a renaissance year in his first season in Chicago, posting his highest scoring average (18.4) in four seasons, his best field-goal percentage (49.7) in three, and his best-ever rebounding average (12.1).
2/26/2015 Mo Williams, G
Williams scored 17 in Wednesday's win at Chicago.

Analysis: Williams appears to be a fine fit with the Hornets, at least for fantasy purposes. He is averaging 21.0 points on 46.2 percent shooting with 6.7 assists in three games with Charlotte.
