NBA Barometer: Winslow on the Rise

Gaining Value

Justise Winslow, MIA: Winslow has been thriving in his role as the primary ball handler for the Heat in the absence of Goran Dragic (knee), a role that's led to the third-year pro racking up a trio of 20-point efforts, including a near triple-double, in three of his last four games. The 22-year-old has also complemented his offense with an uptick in steals, compiling 11 swipes alone over that four-game period.

Malik Beasley, DEN: Gary Harris' hip injury played a significant part, but Beasley's recent surge has put him on the fantasy map moving forward. The 22-year-old appears to have carved himself out a sizable backcourt rotation role with contributions that include three 20-point efforts in the last four games and six straight double-digit scoring tallies overall. Beasley has seen no fewer than 26 minutes during those outings, and he's now shooting 46.2 percent from the field, including 40.6 percent from three-point range – both career highs.

Tomas Satoransky, WAS: John Wall will miss the remainder of the season due to Achilles surgery, thrusting Satoransky into a starting point guard role he's proven capable of handling in the past. The 27-year-old got his new first-unit tenure off to a great start with 20 points, six assists and four rebounds across 32 minutes versus the Hornets on Saturday night, and he'll see plenty of run moving forward as long as his health endures.

Honorable mention: Bradley Beal, WAS; Darren Collison, IND; Derrick White
