Rockets' Ryan Anderson: Tallies 18 points in Saturday win
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Anderson tallied 18 points (5-15 FG, 4-13 3Pt, 4-5 FT), three assists and two rebounds over 24 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 win over the Timberwolves.

Anderson chucked away from long range throughout the night with modest success, but did manage to post his fifth straight double-digit scoring effort. The veteran forward can be counted on for plenty of three-point shooting, along with fairly solid returns in the rebounding category. He's now upped his scoring totals in four of the last five games, and is averaging 16.4 points during that stretch.

Rockets' Trevor Ariza: Pours in 15 in Saturday shootout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ariza poured in 15 points (3-8 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT) and added three rebounds, three assists and one steal over 32 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 win over the Timberwolves.

All of Ariza's non-free-throw scoring came from behind the arc, helping him hit double digits in the scoring column for the first time in the last four games. The 13-year veteran has been very reliable on his long-range shooting for his offensive contributions recently, as all but one of his baskets over the last three contests have come from downtown. His overall struggles from the floor have resulted in five consecutive contests where Ariza has shot 37.5 percent or lower, although he's been able to salvage those outings from a fantasy perspective with solid contributions in rebounds, assists and steals.

Rockets' Clint Capela: Near double-double in return to first unit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Capela pitched in with 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block over 22 minutes in Saturday's 142-130 win over the Timberwolves.

Despite returning to the starting five after coming off the bench Thursday, Capela still played a modest 22 minutes. However, he was highly efficient with his time on the court, coming within a rebound of his first double-double since Jan. 31. Capela did manage his seventh double-digit scoring effort in eight February games while hauling nine rebounds for the fourth time during the month as well. Despite typically playing under 30 minutes, the 22-year-old has developed into one of the steadier fantasy producers at the center position due to his solid shooting and strong work on the glass.

Warriors' Briante Weber: Will be released by Warriors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Warriors are planning on releasing Weber, head coach Steve Kerr confirmed Saturday, Anthony Slater of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Weber's roster spot is expected to be taken by veteran Jose Calderon once he and the Lakers negotiate a buyout. The deal will be contingent on Calderon passing a physical with the Warriors. Weber might latch on with another organization but his fantasy appeal is negligible.

Lakers' Jose Calderon: Expected to join Warriors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Calderon and the Lakers are working on a buyout, and then his next move would be to take a physical and join the Warriors, according to a source, Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area reports.

The veteran fell out of the rotation with the Lakers, so it's unlikely he will have a huge impact with the defending Western Conference champions unless injuries occur. Calderon is basically just being added for depth in case of emergency and his fantasy appeal will remain limited to deeper leagues.
