10/30/2014 Rajon Rondo, PG After missing the entire exhibition season, Rondo had 13 points, 12 assists and seven rebounds in Wednesday's opener against Brooklyn.

Analysis: Fantasy owners have to be thrilled with what they saw from Rondo. "He looks like himself," coach Brad Stevens said. "He kind of looks like what I saw on film before I got here. I don't think he ever looked like that at any time last year. ... But he is back to full speed. And it's really good to see."
10/30/2014 Kelly Olynyk, C Olynyk led eight Celtics in double figures with 19 points in Wednesday's opener against Brooklyn.

Analysis: It's unclear when Butler will be able to return.

10/30/2014 Chris Bosh, F-C Bosh scored 26 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in the Heat's 107-95 season-opening win over Washington on Wednesday.

Analysis: Bosh is off to a superb start in the Heat's era after LeBron James. There was speculation that Bosh would take on a larger role this season, and this is a good sign that it could be true.
10/30/2014 Dwyane Wade, G Wade scored 21 points while hitting half of his 16 attempts from the floor in the Heat's 107-95 win over Washington on Wednesday.

Analysis: Wade's performance in the season opener is certainly promising, but injuries hampered him last season so monitor his efforts.
10/30/2014 Norris Cole, PG Cole had a career-high 23 points in the Heat's 107-95 win over Washington on Wednesday.

Analysis: Cole started at the point after being used almost exclusively off the bench in his first three seasons.

10/30/2014 Dwight Howard, F-C Howard had 22 points and 10 rebounds in a win at Utah on Wednesday.

Analysis: Howard also blocked two shots and was 10 of 16 from the floor. He played 11 more minutes than he did in his 3-for-5 performance in Tuesday's blowout of the Lakers.
10/30/2014 James Harden, G-F Harden scored 18 and recorded 10 assists in Wednesday's win at Utah.

Analysis: Harden hasn't exactly been efficient from the field, going 13 of 35 - though he's 20 for 22 from the free-throw line through two games.
10/30/2014 Alec Burks, G Burks scored 18 points in Utah's opening loss to Houston on Wednesday.

Analysis: Burks, who was 5 of 6 from the free-throw line, figures to provide some decent value to owners this season.

Analysis: Smith looked to be in midseason form, going an inefficient 9 of 22 from the field. He did add five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal, however.

Analysis: It marked just the third game of Faried's career with at least 22 points and 17 rebounds. He appears to be primed for a huge year in Denver.

Analysis: Young was 10 for 18 after shooting a career-worst 45.4 percent for Philadelphia last season.
