|2/28/2015||Greg Monroe, F-C|
|Monroe had 28 points and 13 rebounds in Friday's double-overtime loss to New York.

Analysis: Westbrook, who fell and hit his face on teammate Andre Roberson's knee in the final seconds, had 40 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists.

|2/28/2015||Damian Lillard, PG|
|Lillard scored 29 points Friday.
Analysis: Lillard hadn't topped 20 in his four previous games so this time, fantasy owners got they money's worth.

|2/28/2015||Matthew Dellavedova, G|
|Dellavedova had 14 points, a career-high 10 rebounds and five assists while starting in place of the injured Kyrie Irving on Friday.

|2/28/2015||Mitch McGary, F-C|
|McGary had 20 points and nine boards Friday.

|Ilyasova had 17 points and 12 rebounds Friday.
Analysis: Ilyasova is a veteran who has gained coach Jason Kidd's trust, though gaining your fantasy trust is a different matter altogether.
