Rui Hachimura - Washington Wizards (17.5 PPG, 9.5 RPG, 3 APG in 35 MPG)
Even though the WIzards are coming off two losses, Rui had two fairly decent games. Against the Clippers and the Hornets, he had 17 and 18 points respectively, with the latter game including a double-double. Against the Clippers, he only made 5 of 14, but went 100% at the free throw line, making all seven shots.
Domantas Sabonis - Indiana Pacers (17.3 PPG, 17 RPG, 4.7 APG in 36 MPG)
Continuing to be every coach’s dream, the big man shows up for every game. After Wednesday’s game with the Celtics, he has recorded 10 straight double-doubles. Contributing to that, in the loss against the Clippers, Sabonis grabbed a career-high 22 boards. Basically, we can’t remember the last time he had an off game.

Kelly Olynyk - Miami Heat (2.5 PPG, 2 RPG, 0.5 APG in 21 MPG)
Looks like Kelly has been stuck in a bit of a rut recently and hasn’t been producing much of anything. Against the Bulls, he scored only 3 points, going 1-4 from the field and sinking one three-pointer. In Miami’s overtime win against the Hawks, he scored two points - both coming from free throws.
Brandon Clarke - Memphis Grizzlies (15 PPG, 7 RPG, 0 APG in 22 MPG)
After sustaining an oblique injury and missing four games, Brandon Clarke returned for Wednesday’s matchup against the Suns. Coming off the bench, he seemed to be back to his regular self after the short rest - he shot 5-6 from the field, including 2-2 from the arc and had two blocks.

Nigel Williams-Goss - Utah Jazz
Nigel played all of three minutes during Utah’s loss to Oklahoma City.
Zach Collins - Portland Trailblazers
With his shoulder finally out of the sling it’s been in since after his surgery on his left shoulder, Collins is on track. He’s been doing light workouts working on range of motion and resistance. With everything going as it should, he will be reevaluated in March.
