Maurice Evans (Hawks)- Evans has scored 18, 15 and 22 points over his last three games. He also has 15 rebounds and 11 three-pointers over this span. Evans played a season high 34 minutes yesterday with Marvin Williams out with an illness.

Terrence Williams (Nets)- Williams had one of his best games of his rookie season yesterday with 18 points and 7 rebounds. Chris Douglas-Roberts missed the game with a sprained knee and T-Will could receive a boost if CDR is sidelined.

C.J Miles (Jazz)- Miles has scored in double-figures in three of his past four games. Last Thursday he scored a season high 22 points and has eight eight-pointers over this span.

Dorell Wright (Heat)- Wright has played 27 minutes or more over his past three games. In this span he has games of 19 and 16 points and is playing well after missing the start of the season.

Glen Davis (Celtics)- Davis had the pins ans removed from his hand last Thursday. He is out for another few weeks but if one has room on the bench in a deep league he is worth the look.
