Grimes closed Wednesday's 101-92 win over Miami with 23 points (8-14 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one steal over 36 minutes.

Grimes' playing time and fantasy value has largely been on the downturn since the team acquired Josh Hart at the trade deadline in early February, but the second-year wing has inexplicably enjoyed a surprising surge of late. After playing between 20 and 25 minutes over a four-game stretch between March 12 and 20, Grimes has received 26-, 38-, 38- and 36-minute workloads over the subsequent four contests. His production has taken off accordingly, as Grimes is averaging 21.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 5.0 three-pointers, 4.3 assists and 1.5 steals over that stretch. There's a level of unsustainability to his offense -- he's knocked down 51.3 percent of his 9.8 three-point attempts per game -- but if he continues to get elevated minutes like he has over the past three contests, Grimes might be able to remain valuable to some degree once shooting regression inevitably hits.
