    • Ty Lawson returns w/ 31 points and 12 assists
      Ty Lawson went off in his return from a one-game personal absence on Sunday, scoring a game-high 31 points with 12 assists before missing a potentially game-tying jumper in overtime.

      Advice: Lawson hit 10-of-20 shots and 8-of-8 free throws with three 3-pointers, three rebounds and three steals, perhaps taking his emotions out on the court after being arrested on suspicion of a DUI on Friday. He may eventually face a short suspension from the league, but for now owners can tentatively expect to have him for all four of Denver's games this week. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari logs 15 minutes in defeat
      Danilo Gallinari had seven points in 15 minutes off the bench vs. Washington, while chipping in one 3-pointer, one rebound and two assists.

      Advice: It's nice to see Gallo healthy and productive, but he has a long way to go before regaining the trust of fantasy owners. Leave him on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Stephen Curry drops 22 pts with 11 assists
      Stephen Curry dropped 21 points on 6-of-16 shooting in a win over the Celtics on Sunday, adding 11 assists, four boards, two steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

      Advice: The Warriors have now won 19 straight games at home which is easily a franchise record, and Curry has been one of the main reasons why they have had so much success. Curry will likely remain a top-3 fantasy asset the rest of the way, and his hunt for the MVP award should only motivate him even more. Rotoworld.com

    • Tiago Splitter shifts to bench on Sunday
      Tiago Splitter shifted to the bench for Sunday's game against the Bucks, scoring eight points with two boards, two assists and one steal in 17 minutes.

      Advice: Matt Bonner drew the start on Sunday, but this isn't the first time coach Gregg Popovich decided to alter his lineup. Given the constant uncertainty at the center position in San Antonio, neither player is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • DeMar DeRozan breaks out of funk w/ 25 points
      DeMar DeRozan snapped a three-game offensive skid with 25 points on Sunday, adding one 3-pointer, six rebounds, four assists and two steals without any turnovers in 35 minutes.

      Advice: The 25 points tied his season high, and they're a welcome sight after his recent three-game stretch of 4.7 points on 17.7 percent shooting. The Raptors have righted their ship with three wins in the past four games but they still have to shore up their defense, which is allowing 100.6 points per game (20th most in the league).

    • Spencer Dinwiddie plays 11 minutes off bench
      Pistons rookie Spencer Dinwiddie played 11 minutes behind D.J. Augustin on Sunday, finishing with two points on 1-of-4 shooting, one rebound, two assists and one block.

      Advice: This was the sixth time all season that Dinwiddie has logged 10+ minutes and he's something of an enigma, but deep-league owners might as well stash him now that he's the Pistons' primary backup PG. The biggest concern is his developing offense -- he's shooting 31.3 percent in limited action (17.6 from downtown), which might tank his value in typical formats. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 7:18 pm
    • D.J. Augustin explodes for career-high 35 pts
      D.J. Augustin exploded for a career-high 35 points while taking over the Pistons' starting PG job on Sunday, hitting 12-of-20 shots with five 3-pointers, four boards and eight assists.

      Advice: Congratulations to all those owners who snagged Augustin off the waiver wire following Brandon Jennings' Achilles injury. Augustin also was 6-of-6 at the FT line with only two turnovers in 37 minutes and this may stand as his best line all season, but he's locked into a huge role with Jennings done for the year. Detroit plays three times next week, which is good enough to start Augustin in all formats. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 7:09 pm
    • Blake Griffin scores 23 pts w/ jumper barrage
      The Suns didn't have an answer for Blake Griffin on Sunday, as he scored 23 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal and only one turnover in 36 minutes.

      Advice: Phoenix is middle-of-the-pack vs. opposing PFs this season, but Markieff Morris and company didn't stand a chance once Blake got his jump shot going -- he made 11-of-19 shots overall, with only one of his makes within 18 feet of the hoop. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 6:49 pm
    • Dante Cunningham starts, scores two points
      Dante Cunningham started Sunday's game but had only two points, two assists and two steals in 21 minutes vs. Dallas.

      Advice: He might have played more minutes for the short-handed Pelicans, but was hampered by foul trouble. Over his past five games he has point totals of two, two, one, 14 and two. He's worth keeping an eye on while starting but is best suited to the waiver wire outside of deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 6:35 pm
    • Ryan Anderson (ankle) scores 18 points Sunday
      Ryan Anderson (ankle inflammation) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday with 18 points vs. the Clippers, hitting 6-of-10 shots with two 3-pointers, five boards, one assist and one block.

      Advice: The time off clearly aided Anderson, who snapped a brutal shooting slump with this efficient bench performance. He was shooting 35.9 percent from the field in January prior to Sunday's game, and it's safe to assume his ailing ankle was part of the problem. Hopefully he can stay hot during a dreamy matchup vs. the 76ers' perimeter defense on Monday. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 6:28 pm
    • Dwight Powell scores 10 points off Mavs bench
      Mavs big man Dwight Powell neared his season-high with 10 points off the bench on Sunday, adding six rebounds, two assists and one block.

      Advice: He played 15 minutes and briefly stepped into a bigger role once Tyson Chandler (knee) went down. Chandler was able to return in the fourth quarter, however, so there's no incentive to pluck Powell off the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 6:26 pm
    • Roy Hibbert double-doubles in win vs. Magic
      The Pacers snapped their seven-game losing streak in Orlando on Sunday, as Roy Hibbert contributed a double-double of 11 points and 13 rebounds in 24 minutes.

      Advice: He also blocked a shot and this was a much-needed performance after two straight duds. Hibbert is averaging a mere 22.7 minutes in January and his inconsistency is maddening, so owners should at least consider selling high the next time he strings together a week's worth of double-doubles. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 6:08 pm
    • George Hill gets 17 pts, looks good off bench
      George Hill (groin) excelled in only 20 minutes off the Pacers bench, finishing Sunday's road victory with 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

      Advice: Indiana will play it safe with Hill to avoid aggravating his groin injury, so his minutes may stay low a while longer. He'll retake the starting PG job before long, however, and has too much upside to be floating on the waiver wire in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 6:07 pm
    • Nikola Pekovic plays 36 minutes as starter
      Nikola Pekovic played a season-high 36 minutes in his return to the starting lineup, finishing Sunday's road loss with 15 points, three rebounds, one assist and zero blocks.

      Advice: The Wolves have limited Pek's playing time as a precaution all year and he's unlikely to top 32 minutes very often. He made 4-of-10 field goals but knocked down 7-of-8 free throws, and owners couldn't have asked for more in his third game back from an ankle injury. Go ahead and get him into active lineups for the Wolves' upcoming four-game week. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 5:39 pm
    • Joey Dorsey starting on Sunday vs. Lakers
      Joey Dorsey will draw the start against the Lakers on Sunday in place of Dwight Howard (ankle).

      Advice: Dorsey's game doesn't translate to fantasy very well, so he should only be considered in ridiculously deep leagues for owners in need of short-term value. The real beneficiaries in Howard's absence will be Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 5:14 pm
    • Kevin Love gets 19 & 13 w/ five 3-pointers
      Kevin Love scored 19 points with 13 rebounds, one assist and one block in 36 minutes on Sunday, while making 5-of-7 shots from downtown.

      Advice: He was 3-of-17 from deep in Cleveland's previous four games, and his ability to knock down triples is critical for his fantasy value -- 35.6 percent of his attempts have come from deep this season, which blows away his previous career high. Love is returning third-round value this season, which isn't what owners expected on draft day, and it's hard to envision a surge while LeBron James and Kyrie Irving are healthy. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 4:29 pm
    • Serge Ibaka launches nine 3-pointers Sunday
      Serge Ibaka tied his season-high with nine 3-point attempts on Sunday, making three of them to score 15 points with 10 rebounds, two steals and two blocks.

      Advice: Ibaka was 6-of-16 from the field overall, marking the second straight game he's jacked up 16 shots. That's an encouraging trend for fantasy owners despite his current slump -- the career 53.5 percent shooter is just 19-of-53 over his past four games (35.8 percent). Look for him to bounce back vs. the Wolves' porous defense on Monday. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 4:19 pm
    • Russell Westbrook one REB off triple-double
      Russell Westbrook fell one rebound shy of a triple-double vs. Cleveland on Sunday, scoring 22 points with nine boards, 11 assists, two steals and one block.

      Advice: He shot 7-of-26 overall but made three 3-pointers and committed only two turnovers in OKC's tough road loss. Westbrook is one of 11 players with a triple-double this season, with Rajon Rondo leading the league with three of them in 38 games. Despite the near-miss for Westbrook his owners should only have one complaint -- his heavily-weighted 36.8 percent shooting over the past month. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 4:17 pm
    • Aaron Brooks scores 17 points in 21 minutes
      Aaron Brooks was a lone bright spot off the Bulls bench on Sunday, scoring 17 points on 6-of-11 shooting, to go with two rebounds, four 3-pointers, one steal, and two turnovers.

      Advice: This is pretty much what you get with Brooks, some scoring, some 3-pointers, and not much else. His value will likely take a hit when Mike Dunleavy eventually returns to the lineup, but until that happens, he'll be able to post some low-end value in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 4:03 pm
    • Taj Gibson shoots just 3-of-10 against Miami
      Taj Gibson really struggled during Sunday's loss to the Heat, shooting 3-of-10 from the field for 11 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and one turnover.

      Advice: Gibson fell victim to the Hassan Whiteside show, and had his shot blocked six times tonight. His numbers are always going to take a dip when Joakim Noah is back in the lineup, and tonight was no different. Look for him to bounce-back on Tuesday with a more favorable matchup against the Warriors. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 3:59 pm
    • Ty Lawson will start on Sunday vs. Washington
      Ty Lawson will return to the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Wizards.

      Advice: Lawson was unavailable for Friday's game after being arrested for his second DUI early Friday morning. However, he'll be back in the lineup today, and he's obviously a must-start option every time he's in uniform. Jameer Nelson and Randy Foye's value will take a hit with Lawson back in the rotation. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 3:26 pm
    • Derrick Rose scores 19 on 7-of-17 shooting
      Derrick Rose scored 19 points on 7-of-17 shooting on Sunday, adding four assists, two rebounds, one steal, one block, and four turnovers.

      Advice: Low shooting percentages and a high turnover rate have really limited Rose' value this season, but at least he's managed to stay healthy. However, he is having a nice January with averages of 19.7 points, 5.3 assists, 2.3 three-pointers, 2.7 turnovers, and 1.0 steal per game. However, with the injury risk that is Rose, selling-high at this point would be advisable. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 3:23 pm
    • Nikola Pekovic will start on Sunday vs. ATL
      Nikola Pekovic will return to the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Hawks.

      Advice: Mo Williams, Andrew Wiggins, Thaddeus Young, and Gorgui Dieng will join Pekovic, so it's interesting and encouraging that Pek’s return to the starting lineup will not affect Dieng's status as a starter. We'll let you know how the pairing performs after the game. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 3:03 pm
    • D.J. Augustin starting Sunday vs. Toronto
      D.J. Augustin will start at point guard for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

      Advice: The Pistons are looking at adding a third point guard, but Augustin is going to have essentially zero competition for playing time with Brandon Jennings (Achilles) going down for the rest of the season. Augustin needs to be picked up in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 2:43 pm
    • Nicolas Batum (wrist) questionable Monday
      Nicolas Batum (wrist) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. Brooklyn

      Advice: Batum recently admitted that he's dealing with a torn ligament on the outside of his right wrist, and his shot has been off all season (currently a career-low 38.8 percent from the field), so perhaps some rest could be a good thing for him. We'll be monitoring this situation closely, so check back for another update closer to Monday's tip. If Batum is forced to sit, expect Wesley Matthews, Damian Lillard, and LaMarcus Aldridge to get some more shots. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 2:28 pm
      Injured
    • Ryan Anderson (ankle) expected to play Sunday
      Ryan Anderson (bilateral ankle inflammation) is expected to play Sunday vs. Dallas.

      Advice: Anderson was forced to sit during the Pelicans' last game, but it appears his ankle injury will only cause him to spend one game on the sidelines. Anderson's return to the lineup will hurt the value of Dante Cunningham, Quincy Pondexter, and Alixis Ajinca. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 1:30 pm
    • Mario Chalmers gets it going, plays 40 mins
      Mario Chalmers finally got things back on track on Sunday, putting up 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting to go with five assists, four rebounds, two steals, and three turnovers over 40 minutes of action.

      Advice: Chalmers also hit one 3-pointer and was a perfect 4-of-4 from the stripe, but it's worth noting that Norris Cole did not even step on the court today. Hopefully Chalmers will get things going after today's outing, and he's worth a look if he was dropped in your league after a month-long cold streak. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 1:18 pm
    • D.J. Augustin set to become starting PG
      With news coming out that Brandon Jennings will miss the remainder of the season with an Achilles injury, D.J. Augustin is set to become the starting point guard in Detroit.

      Advice: Augustin is averaging 13.3 points, 6.3 assists, 1.3 three-pointers, and 3.3 turnovers through three games as a starter for Detroit. Make sure he's not sitting on your waiver wire, as he has now officially become a must-own player in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 11:59 am
    • Brandon Jennings (Achilles) done for the year
      Brandon Jennings will miss the remainder of the season with a full tear of his left Achilles.

      Advice: This is a tough blow for the Pistons, and we wish Jennings a speedy recovery. Typically these types of injuries take 7-12 months for a complete recovery, and that's just talking about returning to the court. D.J. Augustin becomes a must-own guy with Jennings unavailable for the rest of the season, and Spencer Dinwiddie will also enter the rotation as the primary reserve off the bench. If Augustin is sitting on your waiver wire, go grab him now as he owns averages of 13.3 points, 6.3 assists, and 1.3 three-pointers as a starter for Detroit. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 11:33 am
    • Goran Dragic would consider return to Houston
      Goran Dragic said that he will keep an open mind in free agency, and that he would even consider a return to Houston.

      Advice: "Every team in the NBA is an option to me, because it is a privilege to play for any team in the NBA," Dragic said. "When the time comes I’m going to sit down with my family and my agent and try to make the best decision for myself." It's no secret that Dragic has drawn plenty of interest from several teams, as he has really taken a step forward in his development in recent years. However, despite all the rumors it doesn't appear that Phoenix is willing to trade him at this point in the season and they will likely have to risk letting him walk in free agency without getting anything in return. As always, we will continue to monitor this situation closely. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 6:16 am
    • Woj: 'Strong belief' Jennings tore Achilles
      There is a "strong belief" within the Pistons that Brandon Jennings tore his left Achilles on Saturday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

      Advice: Sadly, all signs support this claim. Jennings was in agonizing pain at the time of the injury and couldn't put any weight on his leg. Those who have torn their Achilles before have mentioned it felt like being drilled with a baseball in their lower leg, which seemed to be the case for Jennings. The Pistons will conduct an MRI to confirm the damage, but fantasy owners in all re-draft leagues should consider Jennings out for the season. D.J. Augustin is expected to start and is worth owning in all standard leagues. Spencer Dinwiddie will also get more run. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:24 pm
    • Nic Batum (wrist) admits he has torn ligament
      Nicolas Batum admitted on Saturday that he suffered a torn ligament on the outside of his right wrist on Dec. 17.

      Advice: It was obvious something was structurally wrong with Batum and now we know what it is. He's aggravated it probably more times than we care to count and the Blazers may still be weighing his treatment options. At this point, he's likely going to miss a week or two. There really isn't a great pickup to make with Batum out. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:51 pm
      Injured
    • Spencer Dinwiddie now the backup PG
      Spencer Dinwiddie played seven minutes against the Bucks on Saturday with four points, two rebounds, two assists and one steal.

      Advice: He hasn't had a great run in the NBA, averaging just 3.0 points, 2.1 dimes, 0.4 steals and 0.4 treys on 31.0 percent from the field. Dinwiddie does have a lot of talent, he was coach Stan Van Gundy's first draft pick with the team, and the Pistons are now likely going to make him their backup point guard with Brandon Jennings (foot) going down tonight. Keep an eye on him in deep leagues with his decent upside. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 7:23 pm
    • DJ Augustin set for major increase in minutes
      D.J. Augustin played 15 minutes on Saturday against the Bucks with two points and two steals.

      Advice: Despite the awful game, Augustin is set for a significant bump on playing time. Brandon Jennings (leg) is possibly out for the season, so expect DJA to play close to 30-35 minutes. He can add some steals, dimes and triples, which makes him some worth grabbing in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 7:18 pm
    • SVG: Jennings out for foreseeable future
      Coach Stan Van Gundy said Brandon Jennings' foot injury "doesn't look good" and he will be out for the foreseeable future.

      Advice: The Pistons will give him an MRI in the coming days to confirm the diagnosis. Looking at the circumstantial evidence, Jennings is likely out for the season with an Achilles tear. To be clear, that is still just an educated guess and it has not been confirmed. D.J. Augustin is going to pick up around 10 minutes per game and should be owned in all standard leagues. Spencer Dinwiddie will also play more. Hopefully, we're wrong on Jennings. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 7:09 pm
    • Brandon Jennings leaves game with leg injury
      Brandon Jennings suffered a left leg injury and went to the locker room on Saturday.

      Advice: It did not look good at all and his teammates were very discouraged. Jennings had to be taken to the locker room in a wheelchair, so it could be a severe ankle injury or an Achilles issue. If you're looking to add a point guard, D.J. Augustin is a very strong speculative add right now. Spencer Dinwiddie will also get in the rotation. Jennings finished with 16 points, two rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 6:13 pm
    • Nicolas Batum (wrist) out for Saturday night
      Nicolas Batum (wrist) won't play against the Wizards on Saturday.

      Advice: He almost had no chance to play tonight due to his nagging wrist injury. It's interesting that LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) is playing tonight and maybe Batum's status was a factor in his decision. The Blazers will use about five different guys to fill the void left by Batum, so there's little reason to make a pickup in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 5:20 pm
      Injured
    • George Hill has soreness, expects to play
      George Hill is experiencing some soreness from Friday, but is expected to play against the Magic on Sunday.

      Advice: The severity of the soreness is not known, but this certainly isn't good news. Hill has dealt with his groin strain for basically three years and he's already aggravated it once. He'll likely be on a minutes limit again on Sunday and is more of a stash. Donald Sloan may still see a few more minutes. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 1:48 pm
    • Ty Lawson will return to the lineup on Sunday
      Ty Lawson (personal) will play against the Wizards on Sunday.

      Advice: After missing Friday due to an arrest earlier in the day, he'll likely be back in his former role. Lawson apologized to his teammates and has already spoken with coach Brian Shaw. If you added Jameer Nelson based on his impressive Friday showing alone, you can probably reconsider. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 12:43 pm
    • Ryan Anderson has a good chance to play Sun
      Ryan Anderson has a good chance to play on Sunday vs. the Mavericks, according to coach Monty Williams.

      Advice: This is definitely good news as it was feared that Anderson's injury might have cost him a few more games on the sidelines. If Anderson does return on Sunday, Dante Cunningham, Quincy Pondexter and Alexis Ajinca will all lose value. We will provide further details when they are made available. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:00 am
    • DeMar DeRozan struggling since his return
      DeMar DeRozan has struggled significantly over his last three games, scoring a combined 14 points over that span.

      Advice: Since Terrence Ross was benched, DeRozan has been playing a lot more small forward but he doesn't blame his recent production on the switch. "It's not really about me playing the three, just my whole rhythm and feel of everything," DeRozan said. "Just get that back on track and let it come to me natural, like it was before. I kind of find myself looking for fouls now, instead of it coming naturally to me." To be clear, we fully expect him to be fine and it is just a matter of time before he starts scoring at an elite level again. It may not be a bad idea to float some buy-low offers if his owner is panicking. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 8:40 am
    • Danilo Gallinari returns to action on Friday
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) returned to action on Friday, logging 17 minutes with four points on 1-of-7 shooting and that's it.

      Advice: Gallo might benefit from a trade sending Wilson Chandler out of Denver but there is way too much uncertainty about his ability to produce to stash him in most standard formats. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 1:40 am
    • Danilo Gallinari returned to action on Friday January 23. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 12:04 am
    • Pekovic turns in 13 and nine with two blocks
      Nikola Pekovic scored 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting with nine rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: This comes against a thin New Orleans bench but regardless it looks like he's ready to produce again. Flip Saunders said that he's going to try and find ways to play both he and Gorgui Dieng together some, which makes sense because nobody is setting the power forward position on fire and Dieng deserves to be on the floor. Pek is worth an add while he's upright. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:55 pm
    • Cunningham gets small token of revenge
      Dante Cunningham returned to Minnesota where he played last season, scoring 14 points on 7-of-12 shooting with five rebounds, two steals and one block over 35 minutes in Friday's win.

      Advice: Cunningham is going to have some extra opportunity with Jrue Holiday out for a while and Ryan Anderson dealing with an ankle injury. Give him a look if you need a low-end forward. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:45 pm
    • Gibson productive with 15 and seven vs. DAL
      Taj Gibson scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: Gibson was productive despite the return of Joakim Noah (23 minutes) and despite that he should be owned in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:15 pm
    • Chalmers has quiet game with Wade around
      Mario Chalmers scored nine points on 3-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, two assists and two steals over 30 minutes on Friday against the Pacers.

      Advice: Chalmers has been ice-cold lately and he can only be viewed as a stash in the hopes the older players on the Heat start to exit stage left. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:50 pm
    • George Hill (groin) logs 20 minutes in return
      George Hill (groin) returned to action in Friday's loss to the Heat, scoring 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting (no threes) with zero rebounds, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes.

      Advice: This is pretty much on par with what we expected and he should not be floating around any waiver wires. As long as he is healthy he'll be a major part of the Pacers' attack and has mid-round upside. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:44 pm
    • Joey Dorsey headed for more minutes?
      Joey Dorsey played 20 minutes against the Suns on Friday with four points, six boards, two steals and one block.

      Advice: If Dwight Howard is going to miss time, Dorsey should get some run. He's obviously not going to play much more than 24 minutes, so he can be left on the wire in just about all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:40 pm
    • Hibbert's slump continues on Friday
      Roy Hibbert's slump continued on Friday against the Heat, as he managed just four points, two rebounds and one assist in 18 foul-plagued minutes.

      Advice: Folks that voted for Hibbert on that All-Defensive team last year probably want a re-do, but in fantasy leagues just get him on your bench and wait for him to get it figured out. He's a late-round guy unless things worsen. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:39 pm
    • Goran Dragic benched late after tech
      Goran Dragic did not play down the stretch on Friday, finishing with two points and two assists in 18 minutes.

      Advice: There's talk of coach Jeff Hornacek benching Dragic because of his technical foul and a new team rule that says a player will be benched after a tech. Dragic should be fine for his next game, but he will have his bad games due to the Suns' depth at guard. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:01 pm
    • Ty Lawson out on Friday night vs. Boston
      Ty Lawson will not play on Friday night against the Celtics.

      Advice: He is not at the arena tonight and will be with the team on Saturday. Lawson was arrested for his second DUI on Friday morning following a team function on Thursday night. Jameer Nelson will start and is a very solid play for DFS tonight. Expect Randy Foye to get some extra run, as well. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 3:58 pm
    • George Hill (groin) will be active for Friday
      George Hill (groin) will be on the active roster for Friday's game vs. Miami.

      Advice: While he isn't starting, is appears that he will play, and that will likely hurt the value of C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan. He's not a must-start guy tonight as he'll likely be eased back into things, but he deserves to be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 3:48 pm
    • Nicolas Batum (wrist) doubtful for Saturday
      Nicolas Batum (wrist) is doubtful to play against the Wizards on Saturday.

      Advice: There is still no word of Batum getting an MRI, but it would appear he's going to miss multiple games. He's been dealing with wrist soreness for over a month and he's been fairly open about how it's having an adverse effect on his shooting. The Blazers will have to use a combination of Dorell Wright, Victor Claver, and Allen Crabbe to play the three. However, Wes Matthews will certainly slide over to small forward, which could also get C.J. McCollum and Steve Blake some minutes. Also, the Blazers will have more minutes available for Meyers Leonard and Thomas Robinson. Yeah, this rotation is a mess. We know. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Ty Lawson arrested for DUI Friday
      Ty Lawson was reportedly arrested for a DUI at 1:20 in the morning on Friday, according to Denver radio host Darren McKee.

      Advice: He was also charged with speeding and careless driving, and this will most likely result in a short suspension from the league. His status for Friday's home game vs. the Celtics isn't clear, but we'll update his status once the Nuggets make a public comment. If Lawson can't suit up, Jameer Nelson would likely assume a heavy workload as the starting PG. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:37 am
    • Ryan Anderson (ankle inflammation) out Friday
      Ryan Anderson will not play on Friday due to bilateral ankle inflammation.

      Advice: This is slightly ominous since the Pelicans also listed Jrue Holiday as having ankle inflammation before his stress reaction was revealed, but there's no reason to think Anderson has more than a day-to-day injury. His absence should result in more minutes for Dante Cunningham, Quincy Pondexter, Luke Babbitt and Alexis Ajinca, with Cunningham shouldering the heaviest burden. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:29 am
    • George Hill (groin) expected to play vs. Heat
      George Hill (groin) is expected to return to action vs. the Heat on Friday.

      Advice: Hill won't immediately join the starting lineup but his return is still bad news for the limited value of C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan. Hill hasn't played since Dec. 31 and may need a few games to scrape off the rust, but he belongs on a roster in all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:14 am
    • Derrick Rose take off medical minute-limit
      The Bulls have lifted all playing-time restrictions for Derrick Rose, who logged a season-high 37 minutes last Saturday.

      Advice: "I think the more he plays, the better he's going to be," Tom Thibodeau said after Thursday's convincing win vs. the Spurs. Rose has missed 11 games this season but he's been healthy and effective over Chicago's past six games, averaging 23.7 points, 3.5 triples, 6.5 assists and 1.0 steals in 32 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:37 am
    • Blake Griffin scores 24 points in easy win
      Blake Griffin made 11-of-14 from the field for 24 points against the Nets during a 123-84 win on Thursday with six rebounds, three assists and two steals in 25 minutes.

      Advice: He's on fire over his last four, averaging 27.5 points, 7.5 boards, 4.3 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.3 treys and 1.0 turnovers on 63.4 percent from the field and 80.0 percent from the line. Griffin doesn't have a single block in that stretch and he's on pace to set a career low of just 0.4 per game this season. Obviously, his owners shouldn't care if he's scoring the ball this efficiently. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 11:01 pm
    • Nicolas Batum wearing a large wrist brace
      Nicolas Batum was wearing a large brace on his right wrist following Thursday's game against the Celtics.

      Advice: He could not play through the pain this time after aggravating an old injury. Batum has dealt with a right wrist injury for over the past month and he also dealt with it last season. He said he can't use his wrist right now and he's unsure how much time he's going to miss. In other words, it sounds like he's not going to play on Saturday. Expect to see more of C.J. McCollum, Steve Blake, Dorell Wright, Thomas Robinson, Will Barton and Victor Claver to get more minutes in what will appear to be a random selection from coach Terry Stotts. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 10:05 pm
      Injured
    • Nicolas Batum (wrist) out for game vs. BOS
      Nicolas Batum (right wrist) will not return to Thursday's game due to a wrist injury.

      Advice: This nagging shooting wrist injury just will not go away. Batum has been complaining about his wrist injury for almost two months and the Blazers might give him an MRI to make sure he didn't aggravate anything structurally. With Batum out, Dorell Wright, who was the 11th man in the rotation tonight, will pick up some extra playing time. Batum did not score with three rebounds, four assists and no turnovers in 22 minutes tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:30 pm
      Injured
    • Taj Gibson comes through vs. Spurs
      Taj Gibson turned in a productive game in the starting lineup against the Spurs on Thursday with 15 points, nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks.

      Advice: After some very quiet games in the starting lineup, Gibson is clicking on the stat sheet. In his last five games as a starter, he averaged 11.8 points, 7.8 boards, 0.8 steals and 2.6 blocks in 37.6 minutes per game. Joakim Noah (ankle) shouldn't be out much longer, but Gibson is a must-start player until further notice. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:12 pm
    • Derrick Rose scores an efficient 22 points
      Derrick Rose made 9-of-16 from the field and both free throws for 22 points against the Spurs on Thursday with two rebounds, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

      Advice: He looked awesome today and coach Gregg Popovich pulled out all the stops to try and contain the former MVP. Rose is hitting on all cylinders right now with averages over his last five of 24.8 points, 3.2 boards, 6.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 4.0 triples on 48.9 percent from the field. This is probably going to be the pinnacle of his fantasy value and he is still a guy the Bulls won't hesitate to sit, so he's a sell-high player. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 7:59 pm
    • Stephen Curry leads votes for All-Star Team
      Stephen Curry, Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis and Marc Gasol were voted in as the starters for the Western Conference All-Star Team.

      Advice: Curry was the top vote getter and he deserves it with his team holding the best record in the NBA. Kobe Bryant is likely going to miss the All-Star game with his rotator cuff tear, so James Harden or Klay Thompson will likely replace him. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 4:22 pm
    • Derrick Rose is no longer on a minutes limit
      Derrick Rose has been cleared to play as many minutes as he can handle moving forward.

      Advice: He has averaged 32.8 minutes per game in January which speaks volumes of his health recently. To put that into perspective, Rose averaged 30 minutes during December and just 25.9 in November. While it's hard to ever imagine Rose returning to MVP form, it's good to see him moving in the right direction. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 3:21 pm
    • George Hill (groin) now questionable Friday
      George Hill (groin) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game vs. the Heat.

      Advice: He has been sidelined since Dec. 31, so this is welcome news for his owners. Hill's return would likely send C.J. Watson back to the bench, ruining his already limited value. Donald Sloan would also likely fall out of the rotation completely, so owners in deep leagues should have another plan ready. If Hill is somehow available in your league, he is more than worth a look. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 12:52 pm
    • Danilo Gallinari available for Fri vs Celtics
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) will be available for Friday's game against the Celtics.

      Advice: Gallo last played on December 20 before suffering a torn meniscus and will likely be eased back into action on Friday. The 26-year-old has only played 24 games over the past two seasons and will be limited to a bench role behind Wilson Chandler, so fantasy owners can feel free to leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 9:27 am
    • Nikola Pekovic still limited in Weds return
      Nikola Pekovic (wrist) said he felt good but limited in his first game since November 15 on Wednesday.

      Advice: Pekovic scored 14 points to go with four rebounds in 23 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks, but thinks he'll be able to help more as the season progresses. "I was trying to help from a different standpoint," Pekovic said. "Talking, do some more stuff inside. I wasn't really able to do everything I can do." Pekovic is worth a flier in most fantasy leagues, but he and Gorgui Dieng will both have their value capped as long as they're splitting minutes. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 7:35 am
    • Stephen Curry torches Rockets for win
      Stephen Curry hit 7-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers for 22 points, three rebounds, 10 assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Rockets.

      Advice: Patrick Beverley didn't slow him or Klay Thompson down tonight and Curry is going to start for the Western All-Stars, although that won't be official until later on Thursday. The Warriors have now won 17 straight games at home, which is a franchise record. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:50 pm
    • Slump Busted: Nic Batum breaks through w/ 27
      Nicolas Batum finally broke out of his season-long slump on Wednesday, hitting 9-of-15 shots and six 3-pointers for 27 points, 10 rebounds, five assists and a block in 39 minutes.

      Advice: Finally! This was easily Batum's best game of the season and it may not be a coincidence that LaMarcus Aldridge was out with a thumb injury. Hopefully this was the game that will get Batum's season jump started, and hopefully he will continue to look for his shot going forward. Additionally, this will save the Rotoworld staff from having to answer the "Can I drop Batum?" tweets that have started rolling in. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:38 pm

    • Russell Westbrook scores 32 points
      Russell Westbrook hit a game-winning layup against the Wizards on Wednesday, finishing with 32 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal and three turnovers in 42 minutes.

      Advice: He's suddenly turned it around after a disastrous start to his 2015. Before his 19-point game on Tuesday, Westbrook was only able to knock down 6-of-50 jump shots to start the year, which has been a bugaboo in his career. He's almost a lock to lead the NBA in usage rate again and will be a stat-stuffing stud all season. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:17 pm
    • Serge Ibaka gets benched late vs. Wizards
      Serge Ibaka played 28 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday with seven points, five rebounds and one assist.

      Advice: He made 3-of-11 from the field and he did not play down the stretch in favor of Steven Adams. This is pretty close to rock bottom for Ibaka because he only had nine points against the Heat on Tuesday. He's not going to be the first-round stud we've seen in the past few years, but he's still a nice buy-low target. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:11 pm
    • Roy Hibbert disappears in loss to Hawks
      Roy Hibbert hit just 1-of-4 shots for four points, one rebound and one block in 20 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Hawks.

      Advice: Yuck. We said he struggled against the Rockets on Monday, but he had 12 points and four boards in that one, so he took "struggle" to another level tonight. The Hawks are simply rolling over the NBA and leaving bodies in their wake, and Hibbert was one of them tonight. He'll bounce back from this one, so don't panic. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:03 pm
    • DeMar DeRozan scores six points in 33 minutes
      DeMar DeRozan logged 33 minutes vs. Memphis on Wednesday, but scored only six points on 2-of-11 shooting with three rebounds and one block.

      Advice: DeRozan didn't attempt any 3-pointers and he added just one assist without any steals, making this a thoroughly disappointing line for his patient fantasy owners. The Raptors are 27-15 overall but just 11-8 on the road, and they've fallen from No. 1 in the Eastern Conference to No. 3, with the Bulls trailing by just half a game. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:37 pm
    • Nikola Pekovic plays 23 minutes in return
      Nikola Pekovic returned from his ankle injury and hit 5-of-11 shots for 14 points and four rebounds in 23 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: He last played on Nov. 15, so he looked pretty good considering how long he's been dormant. His return hurt Gorgui Dieng, who had six points and seven rebounds in 25 minutes. These two are going to split minutes as long as Pekovic is healthy, hurting both of their fantasy value in the process. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:17 pm
    • Brandon Jennings blows up w/ 24 pts, 21 dimes
      Brandon Jennings handed out a career-high 21 assists during the Pistons' win vs. Orlando on Wednesday, while scoring 24 points and turning the ball over just twice in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He's the first player to have 20+ points and 20+ assists in a game since Steve Nash did it in 2009, and only four players have done it since 2000 -- Jennings, Nash, Ramon Sessions and Jalen Rose. Jennings has been in a shooting slump lately but he's looked like a different player since Josh Smith's departure, flirting with top-20 value despite averaging a mere 28.1 minutes over the past month. Congratulations are in order if you stuck with him during his early-season doldrums. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:09 pm
    • Nikola Pekovic (ankle) returns in backup role
      Nikola Pekovic (ankle) will play on Wednesday, but he'll come off the bench under a strict minute-limit.

      Advice: Pek's ankles will require vigilance all season and the cellar-dwelling Timberwolves have no reason to give him heavy playing time, especially with Gorgui Dieng playing exceptionally well as a starter. Pekovic is worth a look for points, FG percentage and rebounds, but his minute-limit and lack of defensive stats are bound to keep his value in check. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:51 pm
    • George Hill (groin) out again on Wednesday
      George Hill (groin) will miss Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

      Advice: This will be his 11th straight game on the sidelines, and he has only been able to play in five games so far this season. Hill did return to practice on Tuesday suggesting that his return is getting closer, but there is no telling when we will see him in uniform again. C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan will continue to fill the void for the Pacers, but neither player is reliable enough to use in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:56 am
    • Ty Lawson has four pts in 4th straight loss
      Ty Lawson dished out eight assists vs. the Spurs but he scored only four points on 2-of-6 shooting, just his sixth game with single-digit points all season.

      Advice: Lawson's career-high 10.0 dimes have been diminished in fantasy leagues by poor percentages (43.6 percent FGs, 72.5 percent FTs), but that hasn't prevented him from posting top-50 value in 8-cat leagues. He's played at least 30 minutes in every game since Dec. 1, and his 37.2 minutes per game rank fourth in the NBA behind LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Jimmy Butler. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:58 pm
    • Mario Chalmers quiet in 28 minutes vs Thunder
      Mario Chalmers struggled in 28 minutes on Tuesday, finishing a loss to the Thunder with six points, one rebound, three assists and four turnovers.

      Advice: Chalmers had a golden opportunity with Dwyane Wade out over the past two games, but he sputtered out with averages of 7.0 points on 27.8 percent shooting, 3.0 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.0 steals. His fantasy value has been dragged down by the heavy anchor of sub-40 percent shooting, and he belongs on fantasy benches until he heats up. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:20 pm
    • Serge Ibaka very quiet vs. Miami on Tuesday
      Serge Ibaka hit another 3-pointer during Tuesday's win in Miami, but he finished with a mere nine points, four rebounds, one block and four turnovers in 30 minutes.

      Advice: He didn't have any assists or steals and was limited by some foul trouble, which added up to a dud for fantasy owners. His value has been on the rise lately and one poor performance shouldn't shake owners' faith in his elite value. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:15 pm
    • Thunder move above .500 w/ road win in Miami
      Russell Westbrook had 19 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and four steals on Tuesday, helping OKC improve to 21-20 with a road win in Miami.

      Advice: The Thunder are currently fourth in bench scoring at 34.1 points per game, but that's likely to go down now that Westbrook and Kevin Durant are healthy and firing on all cylinders. Westbrook threw down a few more highlight-worthy dunks tonight, one of which you can gawk at via the link below. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:14 pm
    • Taj Gibson calls out Bulls for lacking effort
      Taj Gibson said that the Bulls have to "practice harder" to escape their current slump, during which they've lost six of the past eight games.

      Advice: "We can't be taking days off," Gibson said. "We're going to go through rough stretches, but we got to practice harder and we got to play with some energy." Pau Gasol also called out his teammates for a lack of effort recently, and coach Tom Thibodeau suggested that some changes could be coming. "We have to find some continuity," Thibodeau said. "Maybe we look at different people." We'll let you know if minutes shift significantly in the next few games. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 4:37 pm
    • George Hill (groin) practices in full on Tues
      George Hill (groin) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, but his status for Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks has not yet been determined.

      Advice: We'll get another update on Hill following Wednesday's shootaround, but his return to practice can be viewed as a positive sign. If he is able to go, C.J. Watson would likely head back to the bench and his already limited value would take a hit. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 3:07 pm
    • Spencer Dinwiddie recalled from D-League
      Spencer Dinwiddie has been recalled from the D-League.

      Advice: Dinwiddie isn't going to be a major part of the Pistons' rotation, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 1:52 pm
    • Nikola Pekovic a game-time decision for Wed.
      Nikola Pekovic (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Mavs.

      Advice: Pekovic said the decision as to whether he plays tomorrow will ultimately be up to head coach Flip Saunders, and while he's still experiencing pain, it has become tolerable at this point. Considering the enormous injury risk that is Pekovic, Saunders will likely ease him back into the rotation, and it's unclear if and when he would return to the starting lineup. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 12:28 pm
    • Derrick Rose vents frustration after CLE loss
      Derrick Rose expressed his frustration with the Bulls' communication during Monday's loss to the Cavaliers.

      Advice: While Rose was careful to say that his words applied to the entire team, he wasn't remotely happy about the way the Bulls played on Monday. "Everybody has to be on the same page," Rose said. "Until then, we're going to continue to get our ass kicked." The former MVP is averaging 24.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 3.8 three-pointers over his last five games, but remains a sell-high candidate due to his injury risk and possibility of him resting in games later in the season. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:00 am
    • Dragic posts 24-9-5 line in win over Lakers
      Goran Dragic scored 24 points on 11-of-15 shooting with nine rebounds, five assists and a steal in the Suns' 115-100 win over the Lakers on Monday.

      Advice: Dragic and the other guards have steadily improved as the season has gone on, and he's returning top-50 value after a really shaky start. Eric Bledsoe added 17 points, five rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two threes in the win. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 12:43 am
    • Batum says wrist injury hurting his shot
      Nicolas Batum hit just 2-of-8 shots (including a late three) for eight points, four rebounds and four assists in the Blazers' 98-94 win over the Kings on Monday.

      Advice: Batum said after the game that his right (shooting) wrist is hurting him and that he has been pushing the ball 'right' on his shot as a result. He added that he has taken hundreds of jumpers during practice to try and fix this, which doesn't seem logical if he needs the rest, but he also cited that the team needs him with Robin Lopez out -- which also doesn't make too much sense. What does make sense is that he wants to play through injury like many players, and the All Star break couldn't come sooner for him. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 12:19 am
      Injured
    • DeRozan goes 0-for-9, Raptors survive and win
      DeMar DeRozan missed all nine of his field goal attempts in Monday's win over the Bucks, finishing with three rebounds and four assists to go with his goose egg in the scoring column.

      Advice: We'll cut him some slack and call this rust but he has a way to go to match the Team USA hype from this summer. Obviously he should remain owned in all formats. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:49 pm
    • Love returns from back injury, double-doubles
      Kevin Love (back) returned to action in the Cavs' 108-94 win over the Bulls on Monday, scoring 16 points on 3-of-13 shooting (1-of-3 from deep, 9-of-10 from the line) with 12 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes.

      Advice: Owners are simply rooting for him to get his health back at this point, and it's certainly a buy low moment but proceed with caution. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:53 pm
    • Gibson double-doubles with five blocks
      Taj Gibson double-doubled with 10 points and 10 boards to go with a steal and five blocks in Monday's loss to the Cavs.

      Advice: Gibson has been relatively quiet so this one is good for owners' confidence. He profiles as a late-round guy when the Bulls are at full strength, and he should be in most lineups whenever Joakim Noah is out. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:41 pm
    • Hibbert struggles against the Rockets
      Roy Hibbert struggled against the Rockets on Monday, scoring 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting with four rebounds and no steals or blocks in just 19 foul-plagued minutes.

      Advice: Hibbert is as up-and-down as they come and it all levels out to solid late-round value. Owners will want to play the matchups and watch out for short weeks. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 19, 7:53 pm
    • Ty Lawson scores 19 points
      Ty Lawson scored more than the other four Nuggets starters combined during a 122-79 loss to the Warriors on Monday, making 8-of-14 from the field for 19 points with one rebound, six assists and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: The Nuggets will want to forget this one because they were down 27 points at halftime. As for Lawson, he's been effective over his last five with averages of 20.6 points, 3.6 boards, 9.0 assists, 0.4 steals and 1.0 treys. He's playing like a top-five fantasy point guard except for the sub-par foul shooting. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 19, 4:47 pm
    • Kevin Love (back) will play vs. Bulls on Mon
      Kevin Love (back) will play on Monday vs. the Bulls.

      Advice: He has been dealing with some back spasms recently and stated that the pain is "paralyzing" when it flares up, but he was able to practice on Sunday and should see his normal minutes against the Bulls. We will let you know how Love holds up after the game. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 19, 4:32 pm
    • Blake Griffin dominates the Celtics on Monday
      Blake Griffin was outstanding against the Celtics during a 102-93 win on Monday with 22 points, nine rebounds, six assists and one steal.

      Advice: He didn't turn the ball over, made all four shots from the line, and was 9-of-18 from the field. Griffin continues to pass the ball extremely well and handed out 5.6 dimes per game over his previous 10. He's also at 54.5 percent from the field and 76.1 percent from the line in 2015, so his owners shouldn't dwell on his lack of boards and blocks. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 19, 4:01 pm
    • Brandon Jennings' slump continues Monday
      The Pistons' win streak ended at two games with Monday's loss in Atlanta, as Brandon Jennings managed just seven points on 1-of-10 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs.

      Advice: Jennings is shooting right around 40 percent from the field this season, so owners will have to live with slumps like the one he's mired in, having made 18-of-54 shots over the past four games. He gets a pass for Monday's dud, at least, since the Hawks are holding opposing PGs to a league-low 18.7 points per game this season. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 19, 3:21 pm
    • George Hill (groin) won't play on Monday
      George Hill (groin) will not play on Monday against the Rockets.

      Advice: He is hopeful to play on Wednesday and he had almost no chance to play tonight. Hill has just five games under his belt due to a knee injury to start the season, but this groin injury has been nagging him for a few seasons. He's worth a look in all leagues, but it's certainly hard to trust him considering how frail he's been. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 19, 12:14 pm
    • Nikola Pekovic remains out of lineup Monday
      Nikola Pekovic (wrist, ankle) remains out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Hornets.

      Advice: He was doubtful coming in, so while we didn't expect him to play, there was at least a chance he could have. Now that he's officially out, Gorgui Dieng will continue to play as much as he possibly can in the middle. Dieng is averaging 10.6 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.8 blocks on 50 percent shooting through 30 starts at center. Big Pek isn't getting his job back. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 19, 10:07 am
    • Derrick Rose says he's feeling great now
      Derrick Rose said he's feeling "great" as the Bulls enter the halfway point of the season.

      Advice: "I think my game is coming along. I’ve been working very hard. I’ve stayed consistent working. I’m really becoming a pro and trying to stay that way.," Rose said. He's coming off back-to-back double-doubles, and he's scored at least 23 points in three straight games. Coach Tom Thibodeau said Rose has been "a lot more aggressive," and specifically cited his defensive improvement. Owners have to be hoping it's the start of a trend. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Love (back) expected to play Monday
      Kevin Love's (back) is expected to play on Monday, but a final determination has not been made.

      Advice: Signs point to him playing, but it's not set in stone. "I don’t know what causes it, but when it does happen it’s pretty paralyzing," Love said. "I’m happy it’s just a spasm. It’s just something kind of day by day. Treat it as is and go along and hope it doesn’t happen." Tristan Thompson would draw the start if Love can't go. Rotoworld.com

    • Tiago Splitter scores team-high 14 pts Sunday
      Tiago Splitter played well vs. Utah on Sunday, racking up a team-high 14 points with four rebounds, three assists and one steal in just 22 minutes.

      Advice: Gregg Popovich said before the game that he plans to use Splitter and Tim Duncan as his routine starters going forward. That's great news for anyone wringing low-end value out of Splitter, who has been bounced in and out of the starting lineup all season, but he's still unlikely to average more than 20-25 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 18, 6:29 pm
    • Serge Ibaka hits four 3-pointers vs. Orlando
      Serge Ibaka set up camp on the perimeter during Sunday's easy road win, hitting 4-of-8 shots from downtown to finish with 16 points, eight rebounds, two steals and one block in 28 minutes.

      Advice: Ibaka's 1.4 triples per game are easily a career high and coach Scott Brooks has given him a green light, adding a valuable new facet to his fantasy game. His FG percentage has dipped as a consequence, to a career-low 47.2 percent, but he's been better with Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant both healthy, shooting 49.0 percent over the past month. Owners can pencil him in for top-20 value the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 18, 5:44 pm
    • Russell Westbrook gets 10th technical foul
      Russell Westbrook picked up his league-leading 10th technical foul during Sunday's game, which he finished with 17 points, one rebound, six assists, one steal and one block.

      Advice: Nobody will complain about his production in just 24 minutes during tonight's blowout win, but owners should keep an eye on his technical count -- if he gets 16 during the regular season he'll be slapped with a one-game suspension. He's coming off an unprecedented triple-double and will be rested and ready for an appealing matchup vs. the Heat on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 18, 5:44 pm
    • DeMar DeRozan scores 22 points on Sunday
      DeMar DeRozan scored 22 points on 7-of-18 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Pelicans, adding three rebounds, one 3-pointer, one assist, one steal, and one turnover.

      Advice: DeRozan also shot 7-of-9 from the stripe, making this your prototypical DeRozan line. He also logged 35.9 minutes, and he looks to be fully recovered from his groin injury that sidelined him for all of December. Before that extended absence, DeRozan had only missed three games over the past four seasons, so hopefully he'll be able to remain on the court for the rest of the year. He has mid-round upside. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 18, 4:33 pm
    • Ryan Anderson struggles in start vs. Raptors
      Ryan Anderson struggled in another start on Sunday, scoring nine points on 3-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, two assists and three turnovers in 27 foul-plagued minutes.

      Advice: Anderson hit two 3-pointers but this was an unvarnished dud for fantasy owners hoping he'd erupt with Anthony Davis (toe) out of the lineup. He's now a combined 10-of-38 from the field (26.3 percent) in three starts this year, but Anderson has too much upside to shy away from if Davis isn't cleared to play in New York on Monday. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 18, 4:05 pm
    • Tiago Splitter to remain with starting unit
      Spurs' head coach Gregg Popovich indicated that Tiago Splitter and Tim Duncan will continue to be the Spurs' standard starting frontcourt pairing moving forward.

      Advice: Splitter has the ability to produce when he sees his minutes in the 30s, but through 12 games as the starting center this year he is averaging just 7.8 points and 4.9 rebounds per game over 20.4 minutes of action. He can only be viewed as an asset in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 18, 2:41 pm
    • Nikola Pekovic (ankle) doubtful for Monday
      Nikola Pekovic (ankle) is doubtful to play Monday vs. the Hornets.

      Advice: Head coach Flip Saunders has said he would like Pekovic to go through a D-League stint before returning to the lineup, and given the fact that that has not happened yet, it's looking unlikely he'll be available on Monday. Gorgui Dieng will continue to start with Pekovic sidelined, and there's a chance he remains the starter upon Pek's return as the Wolves' plans have now shifted to development rather than competing for a playoff spot. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 18, 12:07 pm
    • Kevin Love (back) questionable Monday vs. CHI
      Kevin Love (back) practiced on Sunday, and he is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. Chicago.

      Advice: Love will be re-evaluated following Monday's shootaround, but given the fact he was a full participant during today's practice, his chances for Monday are looking pretty good. However, if he's unable to go, Tristan Thompson will be the primary beneficiary. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Blake Griffin scores an easy 30 in win at SAC
      Blake Griffin made scoring 30 points look easy against the Kings on Saturday during a 117-108 win, making 11-of-16 from the field with five rebounds, five assists and one steal.

      Advice: He's rolling over his last six. In that stretch, Griffin averaged 26.2 points, 6.7 boards, 4.8 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.2 triples on 58.5 percent from the field and 72.7 percent from the line. He has been feasting in the paint in that span, making a pristine 77.1 percent of his 48 shots at the rim (45.4 percent of his shot total). The boards still aren't there for Blake, but he's doing enough to keep his owners satisfied. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 17, 11:25 pm
    • Nicolas Batum's slump just won't end
      Nicolas Batum struggled yet again on Saturday during a 102-98 loss in Memphis, making 1-of-6 from the field for three points with two rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: Trying to defend Batum in fantasy has become very old here. In his last three games, he's managed to average just 4.0 points, 3.7 boards, 3.7 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.7 blocks, 0.7 triples and 3.0 turnovers on 16.7 percent from the field. He also has a 13.4 usage rate and is being eliminated from the offense right now. Still, the non-scoring stats are there, so he should remain owned. Rotoworld.com

    • Chef Curry sizzles with 27 and 11 in win
      Stephen Curry put on a clinic against the Rockets during a 131-106 win on Saturday, scoring 27 points with seven rebounds, 11 assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

      Advice: Usually, Patrick Beverley shuts point guards down, but Curry is apparently matchup proof. Curry is doing it all and he's added a new wrinkle to his game with his efficiency on drives this season. Nobody can cover him and he'll put up huge numbers all season. The Warriors have built a 3.5 game lead in the Western Conference. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 17, 9:50 pm
    • Ty Lawson scores 22 with seven assists
      Ty Lawson scored 22 points on 7-of-15 shooting in a loss to the Wolves on Saturday, adding seven assists, three boards, two steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

      Advice: As good as Lawson has been this season, the Nuggets are fading in the Western Conference and it wouldn't be surprising to see them reduce Lawson's workload down the stretch. Lawson has always been a injury risk throughout his career, so it may not be a bad idea to sell-high while he is this hot. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 17, 9:40 pm
    • Derrick Rose scores 23 in a loss
      Derrick Rose had another encouraging game during a 107-99 loss to the Hawks on Saturday with eight boards, 10 assists and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

      Advice: While he did make 8-of-22 from the field, Rose looks really good out there. This was his third impressive game in a row and he's getting some rhythm on offense. Even with all of these positives, the fear of him resting in games later in the season and the possibility of an injury make him a sell-high player. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 17, 8:29 pm
    • Aaron Brooks has a decent game
      Aaron Brooks scored 13 points with three rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes on Saturday.

      Advice: His minutes are likely going to take a minor dip with Mike Dunleavy getting closer to a return. Brooks will have a tough time putting up consistent value in standard leagues while Derrick Rose is healthy. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 17, 8:21 pm
    • Brandon Jennings slows down in a win
      Brandon Jennings made just 3-of-9 from the field for 10 points during a 107-89 win over the 76ers on Saturday, adding one rebound, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: The second half of back-to-back sets are not his thing. He made just 32.2 percent from the field in his previous eight games in that situation and he's also worse at home, so the splits monster got him again tonight. Jennings is still playing lights out and is a must-start guy. He's a sell-high player, though. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 17, 7:44 pm
    • Roy Hibbert blocks six in OT loss to Hornets
      Roy Hibbert blocked six shots in an 80-71 loss to the Hornets on Saturday, adding 12 points, 14 rebounds and three assists.

      Advice: Lance Stephenson intentionally bumped Hibbert without the ball in transition and Roy did over-sell it a little bit. Besides that, the big man did have to go to the locker room tonight to get stretched out by the training staff. Hibbert is playing a lot better these days with 9.8 boards, 12.4 points and 3.2 blocks in his last five. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 17, 6:46 pm
    • Nikola Pekovic out on Saturday night
      Nikola Pekovic (ankle) will not play against the Nuggets on Saturday.

      Advice: For some reason they listed him as doubtful when there was no chance he was going to play today. Pekovic is expected to need at least a few more days to get going and his minutes will be capped upon his return. Gorgui Dieng is a must-start player while Anthony Bennett is getting some extra run. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 17, 4:29 pm
    • George Hill is expected to play on road trip
      Coach Frank Vogel said that he expects George Hill (groin) to return to action during the upcoming road trip.

      Advice: There is reportedly a small chance that we could see Hill play on Monday vs. Houston, but Wednesday vs. Atlanta is more likely. He has had some tough luck with injuries this season, but if he is floating around the waiver wire he is definitely worth a look in most leagues. C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan will continue to run the point for the Pacers until Hill eventually returns. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 17, 3:33 pm
    • Griffin posts 34 & 10; CP3 flirts with 3x2
      Blake Griffin scored 34 points on 14-of-23 shooting (6-of-7 FTs) with 10 rebounds, three assists and one steal in the Clippers' 126-121 loss to the Cavs on Friday.

      Advice: Griffin did not attempt a three and he addressed his rebounding problem, so this is as good of a game as owners could have hoped for. Like many big men whose value is struggling, the move away from the hoop has killed him and stuck him with just top 40-50 value on the year. Hopefully tonight is a step in the right direction. Chris Paul hit just 4-of-15 shots and 1-of-7 threes, but finished with 15 points, eight boards, 14 assists and three steals in the loss. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 17, 12:13 am
    • Chalmers productive with Wade out
      Mario Chalmers scored seven points on 3-of-9 shooting with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one three in Friday's win over the Kings.

      Advice: Chalmers couldn't get in on the fun like his frontcourt teammates but this is a serviceable line with Dwyane Wade out. He profiles as a strong second half player with the Heat having the potential to fall out of playoff contention, which would put their vets in a shutdown position. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 11:37 pm
    • Goran Dragic breathes fire on the Wolves
      Goran Dragic scored a team-high 21 points against the Wolves during a 110-99 win on Friday with five rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

      Advice: The Dragon is breathing fire again. Over his last five, Dragic averaged 18.0 points, 2.8 boards, 4.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.6 steals on 56.3 percent from the field. His minutes are back up to around 35 and his fantasy owners should feel a little more comfortable about starting him. He won't be as great as last season, though. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 10:50 pm
    • Key Thunder players all go off vs. Warriors
      Russell Westbrook triple-doubled in the Thunder's 127-115 win over the visiting Warriors on Friday, scoring 17 points on 7-of-19 shooting with a career-high tying 15 rebounds, a career-high 17 assists, four steals and a 3-pointer for good measure.

      Advice: After the game Westbrook cracked on some reporters and you'll probably hear more about that than you should. He pushed himself up to No. 7 and 16 returns in 8- and 9-cat leagues when he's on the floor. Kevin Durant also went huge with 36 points on 14-of-18 shooting and a full stat line, Serge Ibaka tied a career-high with 27 points, and Dion Waiters got into the act with 21 points and solid numbers across the board. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 10:11 pm
    • Ibaka ties career-high with 27 points vs. GSW
      Serge Ibaka tied a career-high with 27 points on Friday against the Warriors, hitting 12-of-18 shots with one three, eight boards and one block.

      Advice: Like most big men that move away from the hoop as they develop an outside shot, it has negatively impacted Ibaka's value this year keeping him in the top-40 range and well below his ADP. He's hitting just 46.5 percent of his shots and getting to the line one less time per game, and his blocking numbers are down too. Owners might want to root for the Thunder to add another offensive weapon so he can focus on what made him good in fantasy leagues in the first place. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 10:01 pm
    • Nicolas Batum scores five points
      Nicolas Batum scored five points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer against the Spurs on Friday.

      Advice: He didn't have his wrist brace on for the first time since his injury, but that still didn't cure him. Batum has been one of the biggest letdowns in the entire league and something just isn't right. His numbers after the break last season were terrific, so hopefully he can do it again. His owners should just try to weather the storm. Rotoworld.com

    • Taj Gibson scores 13 in a start vs. Boston
      Taj Gibson played 39 minutes in a start against the Celtics on Friday with 13 points, eight rebounds and two assists during a 119-103 win.

      Advice: It was much worse than expected in the plus matchup. Gibson averaged 14.6 points, 8.7 boards, 1.6 blocks and 0.6 steals in his previous nine starts, which is where he should be on Saturday against the Hawks. If Joakim Noah (ankle) is out, you'll want to start him. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 9:21 pm
    • Derrick Rose scores 29 in win over Boston
      Derrick Rose looked like the pre-injury version of himself against the Celtics on Friday with 29 points, three rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, two blocks and five 3-pointers.

      Advice: While this did come against the Celtics, Rose was amazing today. He was getting to the rim, making all the right passes and didn't even turn the ball over. He is suddenly red-hot from beyond the arc with 11 treys in his last two games, which is a complete fluke based on how he couldn't crack 27 percent before Wednesday this season. As nice as it is to see Rose look like his old self, he's still a sell-high player due to how likely he'll be to miss time. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 9:13 pm
    • DeMar DeRozan scores 25 points in 32 minutes
      DeMar DeRozan scored 25 points against the Hawks on Friday with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He made 11-of-18 from the field in his 32 minutes of action. Clearly, the Raptors have dropped his minutes limit and he should be on his way to his season average of 34 soon enough. DeRozan was below 40 percent from the field before his injury, but he's buried 62.5 percent in his last two. He is safe to start everywhere. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 8:10 pm
    • Hibbert benched for Mahinmi on Friday
      Roy Hibbert was benched for Ian Mahinmi in Friday's loss to the Pistons, finishing with 14 points on 7-of-11 shooting, three rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes.

      Advice: This isn't a back-breaking beat for owners or anything but it would be nice if Hibbert could play consistent ball. He is checking in with top-100 value when on the floor this year. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 7:41 pm
    • Kevin Love (back) won't play Friday night
      Kevin Love (back) will not play against the Clippers on Friday.

      Advice: It makes sense to sit him in the second half of a back-to-back based on how bad he looked on Thursday. It should be interesting to see how the Cavs space the floor now that they're going to have two low-block guys starting in their front court with Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving should have the ball in their hands more. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 7:24 pm
    • Ryan Anderson has a disappointing game
      Ryan Anderson made just 2-of-11 from the field for eight points with eight rebounds and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

      Advice: He even air-balled a 3-pointer tonight to sum up his evening. Anderson apparently doesn't like to start because he made just 31.3 percent from the field in his previous start this season. Anthony Davis (toe) shouldn't be out long, but Ryno will have value in any role. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 7:19 pm
    • Jennings still on fire with 37 pts, 8 treys
      Brandon Jennings was unstoppable in Friday's road win over the Pacers, scoring a season-high 37 points on 10-of-23 shooting (including eight threes) with two rebounds, three assists, two steals and 9-of-9 makes from the foul line.

      Advice: Jennings is going to cool off but owners should probably treat him as an early round asset for trading purposes. He's a top-60 play on the season and a top 15-20 play over the last month. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 7:17 pm
    • Kevin Love (back) is a game-time decision
      Kevin Love (back spasms) is a game-time decision against the Clippers on Friday.

      Advice: He battled back spasms for basically the entire game on Thursday and the Cavs might just hold him out tonight. If he is out, Tristan Thompson and Omer Asik will play next to each other more. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving should have more chances to score, too. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 6:10 pm
    • Danilo Gallinari (knee) targeting January 23
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) got up some shots prior to Friday's game, and said that he is targeting a return for Denver's game against Boston on Jan. 23.

      Advice: Gallinari hasn't looked right for most of the season, and he's putting up some of the worst numbers since his rookie year with averages of 7.8 points and 1.1 three-pointers on 36.0 percent shooting. He's going to be playing limited minutes behind Wilson Chandler, and he's well off the standard league radar. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 4:50 pm
    • Taj Gibson will start on Friday night
      Taj Gibson will start in place of Joakim Noah on Friday night.

      Advice: Coach Tom Thibodeau didn't do anything crazy today and surprise us. Gibson's numbers in the starting lineup are outstanding and he has a great matchup tonight, so he's a terrific play in any format. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 4:25 pm
    • Carlisle hints at more PT for Dwight Powell
      Mavs' head coach Rick Carlisle hinted that he will try to find more playing time for Dwight Powell during a recent interview.

      Advice: "We're going to look at some possibilities maybe to play him a little bit more. I think he's earned that," said Carlisle. Powell received 28.8 minutes during his last outing with Tyson Chandler and Dirk Nowitzki being rested, and he put up 11 points, five rebounds, and a block. However, with the Mavs frontcourt healthy, it will be difficult for Powell to produce in a meaningful way for standard league consideration. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 16, 11:27 am
    • Ryan Anderson spotted in starters jersey
      Ryan Anderson was seen sporting the blue starters jersey during Friday morning's shootaround.

      Advice: The Pelicans are currently listing Anthony Davis (toe) as a game-time decision, however, most signs are pointing towards him sitting this one out. If Davis is unavailable, Anderson would slide into the starting lineup for an excellent matchup against the 76ers, and he'd make for a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Love Hurts: Kevin battles back spasms in LA
      Kevin Love battled back spasms against the Lakers on Thursday, finishing with 17 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer on 4-of-12 from the field.

      Advice: It was bothering him for almost the entire first three quarters. Love had his back re-wrapped near the end of the third and he returned to the game looking much better. He even took a charge on a big possession. There's little doubt that his back is going to swell up on him, so his owners will want to look for news at shootaround tomorrow before Friday's game against the Clippers. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 15, 10:30 pm
    • Kevin Love leaves game with back spasms
      Kevin Love battled back spasms for most of Thursday's game against the Lakers and asked to come out in the third quarter.

      Advice: He was walking up the court on his last two possessions and it was obvious he was hurting. Love checked back in a few minutes later, so we'll let you know how he looks. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 15, 9:26 pm
    • Russell Westbrook turns it over eight times
      Russell Westbrook turned the ball over eight times against the Rockets on Thursday with 16 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, five steals and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He tried to do a little too much tonight. Westbrook played 38 minutes in each of his last two games after not cracking 30 in his previous two due to blowout losses. His 2015 numbers are not good, making just 33.3 percent from the field for averages of 19.0 points, 5.8 boards, 7.0 assists, 2.4 steals, 0.6 treys and 4.4 turnovers in those five games. Westbroke will be Bestbrook in no time, though. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 15, 7:57 pm
    • Serge Ibaka scores 13 points vs. Houston
      Serge Ibaka scored 13 points with seven rebounds, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Rockets on Thursday.

      Advice: He is struggling from the field in his last four, making just 38.1 percent in that stretch. Ibaka does have an eight-block game from Wednesday, but besides that he hasn't really done much in 2015. He has been inexplicably below expectations, but his game is made for standard leagues and he can be viewed as a buy-low guy. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 15, 7:45 pm
    • DeMar DeRozan will see around 29 mins Friday
      Raptors' head coach Dwane Casey said he expects DeMar DeRozan to play around the same amount of minutes (29) on Friday (vs. Atlanta) that he played during Wednesday's game.

      Advice: DeRozan played 29 minutes in his return to the lineup on Wednesday, putting up 20 points (9-of-14 shooting) with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block. He'll have a tough matchup against the surging Hawks, so his field goal percentage may take a hit, but he'll still be worth using in standard leagues for his solid contributions to the points and free throw percentage categories. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 15, 12:15 pm
    • DeMar DeRozan returned to action on Wednesday January 14. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 15, 12:06 am
    • Taj Gibson plays 32 minutes on Wednesday
      Taj Gibson played 32 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday with 12 points, six rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

      Advice: Fantasy owners know the drill by now. When Joakim Noah (ankle) goes down, it's time to add Taj Gibson everywhere. Noah has looked old and slow in the past couple weeks, so the Bulls are likely going to be very cautious with him. Gibson could have a couple weeks of must-start value. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 14, 11:34 pm
    • Stephen Curry scores 32 with seven treys
      Stephen Curry scored 32 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals and seven 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Heat during a 104-89 win on Wednesday.

      Advice: It's getting hot in Chef Curry's kitchen again. He has 18 triples in his last four games with 2.4 steals in his last five. Curry had a very quiet December from deep, making just 35.2 percent from the field for 2.6 triples. It's been different in 2015 with 4.0 treys per game on 50 percent from that range. He's been on a roll all season and is just entering his prime. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 14, 10:22 pm
    • Mario Chalmers disappoints sans Wade
      Mario Chalmers was a letdown against the Warriors on Wednesday, making 2-of-9 from the field for seven points, two rebounds, five assists, three steals and two turnovers.

      Advice: Rio had some huge games the in the last stint Dwyane Wade (hamstring) missed time, so a lot of fantasy owners had him ready to rock tonight. Chalmers had Klay Thompson on his for a lot of this game and he just couldn't get clean looks. Assuming Wade is out again on Friday, Chalmers should be better at Sacramento. Rotoworld.com
