News: Ajinca scored a season-high 24 points (9-10 FG, 6-8 FT) and grabbed eight rebounds in only 22 minutes of action Friday in a win over the Heat.
Impact: Ajinca has now scored double-digit points in three straight games. However, when Anthony Davis is healthy, Ajinca is immediately going to return the bench, so it's worth leaving him out there for a while on the waiver wire, but he might be worth a flier in some daily formats.
News: Cole missed all 10 of his shot attempts Friday, finishing the loss to the Pelicans with just three points, two rebounds and four assists in 23 minutes.
Impact: This was only Cole's fifth game with the Pelicans, so he still has time to learn the offense or system. Cole had scored double-digit points in three straight games heading into Friday, but is shooting 49.2 percent this month and averaging 4.7 assists per game.
News: Evans (foot) started Friday's victory over the Heat, scoring 19 points (9-15, 1-3 3Pt). He finished the game with 11 assists and three rebounds in 33 minutes before fouling out of the game.
Impact: This was Evans' third straight double-double, and didn't even play in the final few minutes of the game. Evans has recorded 10 or more assists in four of his past five games. He sees good to go in all formats now, even with his sore foot.
