Furthermore, he hauled in a career high rebounding total while recording his second double-double of the season. Finney-Smith hadn't posted a double-digit point total in any of the last nine games, so it may not be wise for fantasy owners to expect a repeat performance with just two tilts remaining. Still, he's at least worthy of consideration in daily leagues for Tuesday's matchup versus the lowly Suns.
