Hart (ankle) tallied 14 points (5-13 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-9 FT), 11 rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one block across 36 minutes Saturday in the Pelicans' 136-113 loss to the Bucks.

The poor shooting from the free-throw line and the field took away some of the shine from what was nearly his first career triple-double, but Hart has been much more efficient from both areas on the season (76.1 FT%, 52.2 FG%). More than anything, fantasy managers who have been riding the wave of his big production of late were likely just happy to see him back in the lineup after he sat out the Pelicans' previous game Tuesday against the Cavaliers due to an ankle injury. Since missing the first three contests of December with a left knee issue, Hart has been a tremendous fantasy producer, particularly in points leagues. In his nine appearances dating back to the start of last month, Hart is averaging 16.2 points, 9.3 rebounds, 5.9 assists, 1.3 three-pointers and 1.1 steals.
