C.J. Watson, G, ORL -
Watson has offered solid production off the bench in recent games, and he's averaging 7.5 points (on 52.4 percent shooting), 1.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 1.0 three-pointers over the last four. He's still averaging just 16.6 minutes per game, so expectations should be tempered, but he's capable of offering serviceable returns in scoring and three-pointers in deep formats.

Tyler Ulis, G, PHO - Ulis had already been registering solid production prior to coach Earl Watson's recent decision to shut down Eric Bledsoe (knee) for the season.

He's scored in double digits in three straight and is averaging 12.5 points, 8.0 assists, 2.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals over the last four, and he's sporting a 21.5 percent usage rate over his first two games as a starter, as well.
