Draymond Green is going to fight Jimmy Butler for the most improved player of the year in the NBA. Injuries to David Lee and Andrew Bogut have allowed Green to play 32 minutes per game.  He leads the NBA in defensive efficiency.

The release of Josh Smith opened up the necessary minutes for Greg Monroe to shine and jump into the top 20.

Nikola Pekovic has played in just 22 games this season for the Timberwolves, which has allowed Gorgui Dieng to average 28 minutes per game.  Dieng is not a big scorer, but he does have 13 double doubles this season and his 90 blocked shots is 8th in the NBA.

Outside of a bad December, Jared Sullinger had been the lone bright spot in the Celtics season.  He is averaging 8.4 rebounds per game in 2015, to go along with his 15.6 points per game in the new year.

We were fans of Pau Gasol signing in Chicago prior to the start of the season, but I don't think anyone saw him having THIS good of season!

Heating Up 


Kevin Durant and DeMar DeRozan have been top 25 forwards over the last 30 days, but due to injuries, have not played enough to crack top 50 this season.  They will by the seasons end.  Durant is scoring 26.8 points per game in 2015 with 7 rebounds and 4 assists.  DeRozan is a nice buy low target after shooting just 33.8% in February.

The absence of Dwight Howard has propelled Josh Smith into a top forward over the last two weeks.

Khris Middleton was hot to finish the first half, averaging 16.7 points (50% FG) and 7 rebounds per game in February for the Bucks.  His teammate, Giannis Antetokounmpo (58%) has been even better in February, scoring 17.2 points and grabbing 10 rebounds over Milwaukee's 6 games.
