Two Games

Mike Conley, Memphis Grizzlies

Memphis Grizzlies (vs. PHI, vs. DEN)

Despite only playing two games this week the stars of the Grizz (Rudy Gay, Zach Randolph, Marc Gasol and Mike Conley) should continue to remain in your lineup. Even during a normal week the remaining players wouldn't much value. Starter Tony Allen owns an awful field goal percentage and doesn't contribute much of anything outside of steals.

Minnesota Timberwolves (vs. HOU, vs. PHO)

Owners will want to keep Kevin Love and Andrei Kirilenko going but shouldn't overlook Nikola Pekovic's recent surge. After concerns of a sore back he suited up the following night to score 18 points and record 12 rebounds against the Heat.

Point guards Luke Ridnour and J.J. Barea are fringe options at best. They are scoring in double digits but have seen wild swings in their assist totals. Once Ricky Rubio is able to play more minutes following knee surgery he'll likely put a big dent in both of their values. 

Alexey Shved had some moments coming off the bench earlier in the season but has really struggled shooting the ball in four games since being promoted to starter. He's averaging 6.5 assists during that time but owns a crooked 37.1 field goal percentage.
