Chris Lykes, G, Miami
A move to stay ahead of the curve. Lykes has missed 10 games but is reportedly close to returning from a bad ankle sprain. He'll likely be eased into action when he does return, so there's likely time to make this move, but a healthy Lykes can be a difference-maker, and you have to assume he was dropped given the extended absence. In two games before injury, he averaged 5.0 assists, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 steals to go along with his volume scoring.

Mitchell is/was drafted for his rebounding ability, but he hadn't been tremendously consistent there while also laboring through a calf injury. He appears back in for now, and is seeing a scoring uptick to go along with rebounding, and blocks, swatting nine shots while scoring in double-digits in three straight.
John Harrar, F, Penn State
The Nitany Lions returned to action for the first time since December 30th yesterday, and Harrar had his best performance to date, posting 14 points, 14 boards and three assists.
