Gerald Green recorded 25 points (8-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), two rebounds, and one steal in 27 minutes during the Miami Heat 's 97-78 win versus the Knicks on Friday.
Green started again in place of the injured Luol Deng, and filled it up with a season-high 25 points on only 14 field-goal attempts. As shown on Friday though, Green doesn't do much besides score, and he is a player capable of driving coaches and fantasy owners crazy with his inconsistencies.
With Larry Donnell possibly out for the year, Tye could remain the team's starting tight end the rest of the way.
He doesn't have much upside, and now that the bye weeks are behind us, it's a rare league where you'd need to use him. Nonetheless, Tye should see a few targets most weeks.
Sidney Crosby , who left Saturday's game for several minutes, extended his point streak to four games with a power-play assist Saturday.
Crosby was the recipient of a Brandon Dubinsky cross-check to the neck late in the second period. He went directly to the dressing room but returned for the start of the third. Crosby has a well-documented history of head and neck injuries, so fantasy owners will want to make sure he's healthy heading into Saturday's home tilt against Edmonton.
Hassan Whiteside went for six points (1-6 FG, 4-6 FT), 14 rebounds, and six blocks in 31 minutes during the Miami Heat 's 97-78 win versus the Knicks on Friday.
It was Whiteside's 12th straight game with three or more blocks, and he continues to lead the league in denials per game. He can't be counted on for assists, at the free-throw line, or beyond the arc, but Whiteside is a monster on the glass, a terror defensively, and a nightly double-double threat. The Heat are back in action on Monday versus the Celtics.
Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 40 shots in a 2-1 overtime loss to Columbus on Friday.
He singlehandedly kept the Pittsburgh Penguins in the game through two periods, stopping 24-of-24 shots through 40 minutes. Fleury, who was named the game's No. 2 star, will likely get a well deserved night off Saturday.
