Indiana Pacers Fantasy Spin
Tyreke Evans played through an ankle injury on Friday vs. the Pelicans, scoring 17 points in 19 minutes. He looked amazing for a player that required an MRI less than 24 hours ago, as his injury lingered throughout the All-Star break. Evans added three rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and two triples, but did most of his damage with the game already wrapped up with 11 points in the final 13 minutes. He's playing an average of 18.0 minutes over his last five and can't be trusted in most formats for the time being.
Washington Wizards Fantasy Spin
Bradley Beal couldn't get enough help during a 123-110 loss in Charlotte on Friday, scoring 46 points with six rebounds, seven assists, one block and four 3-pointers in 42 minutes. He extremely efficient, making 16-of-25 from the field, all 10 free throws, and only turning it over once. Beal is tied with Earl Monroe for fifth with the most 40-point games in franchise history with his 10th, and he'll likely climb into the top three this season Elvin Hayes 11, Bernard King 13). Among Eastern Conference players since Dec. 1, only Giannis Antetokounmpo has more 30-point games, and Beal continues to add stats all over the place as a first-round player this season.
