Point GuardTrending Up
Quinn Cook, GSW: Cook has shined over the last two games as the starting point guard in place of Stephen Curry (ankle), racking up averages of 26.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.5 steals against the Kings and Sun,s while draining 70.0 percent of his shot attempts. The 24-year-old has some seasoning despite limited NBA experience, as he played all four years at Duke and started from his sophomore season on. A smooth shooter whose skill set looks ideal for the Warriors' fast-paced attack, Cook should generate some short-term Fantasy value, though he'll sink back into a reduced role once Curry returns.

Milos Teodosic, LAC: Teodosic had some bright prospects coming into the season, considering he'd put together an impressive, multi-year career overseas. He averaged 16.1 points and 6.7 assists per game last season for CSKA Moscow of the VTB United League, but it's seemed as if he left his shooting stroke across the pond.
Teodosic has managed double-digit scoring efforts in only 17 of 40 NBA games and has yet to even hit the 20-point mark. Most recently, he's posted single-digit point tallies in five of the last seven games, a span during which his shot attempts have dropped to a modest 6.4 per game. With other, more effective backcourt options like Austin Rivers and Lou Williams in the fold, Teodosic's Fantasy prospects aren't overly bright as the regular season winds down.
