    • Omri Casspi (knee) out Thursday vs. the Bucks
      Omri Casspi (knee) will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. the Bucks.

      Advice: Ben McLemore and Derrick Williams will see some extended minutes with Casspi sidelined, with McLemore offering the most upside. The Kings don't play again until Sunday, so we'll be considering Casspi questionable for that one, although his status shouldn't matter to owners in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Paul Pierce sits out Thursday practice
      Paul Pierce (sore right big toe) did not practice on Thursday.

      Advice: Pierce missed Tuesday's game with his toe injury and a missed practice on Thursday doesn't bode well for his availability against the Heat on Friday. There's a chance the Wizards are just giving the veteran an extra day to recuperate, so we'll have to check back on his status after Friday's shootaround. If Pierce does sit, Otto Porter would likely get the start and remain a risky option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Manu Ginobili disappointed w/ buzzer beater
      Manu Ginobili said he was disappointed with his last-second shot attempt in Wednesday's triple-overtime loss to the Grizzlies.

      Advice: Speaking of his buzzer-beater shot attempt that hit nothing but the backboard, Ginobili said, "It was a bad shot. I'm disappointed in the decision I made." Manu's fantasy owners can't be disappointed with his Wednesday output of 21 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, and four 3-pointers, but should expect an upcoming rest day for the 37-year-old on either Friday or Saturday.

    • Dwight Howard plays 43 minutes, scores 24
      Dwight Howard played 43 minutes in an overtime win over the Nuggets on Wednesday with 24 points, 16 boards, one assist and four blocks on 7-of-16 from the field and 10-of-15 from the line.

      Advice: The Rockets starters lived at the charity stripe with 48 attempts while their bench didn't have any. As for Howard, he was as dominant as he has been all season and helped keep the Nuggets out of the paint. His 43 minutes are a very encouraging sign and his fantasy owners should have some shred of confidence in him now. Of course, it makes a lot of sense to sell high considering how much time he missed from an injury that came out of nowhere. Rotoworld.com

    • Ty Lawson dropping dimes with poor shooting
      Ty Lawson handed out 16 assists with 12 points, one steal and four turnovers in 47 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

      Advice: He was Patrick Beverley'd tonight. Lawson's dimes are surging with at least nine in every game since Nov. 13. He isn't shooting the ball well, but his 1.5 steals per game have helped him hold some value. He should come around as a scorer and just needs to stay healthy. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Paul toys with Pacers in win
      Chris Paul hit 7-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 20 points, six rebounds, nine assists and five steals in Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

      Advice: The Pacers don't have much at point guard and CP3 had his way with them tonight. The five steals were the icing on the cake and it's been nice to see Paul roaming the court injury free this season. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:54 pm
    • DeAndre Jordan goes for 15-23-2 in win
      DeAndre Jordan abused Roy Hibbert for 15 points, 23 rebounds and two blocks on 4-of-8 shooting on Wednesday.

      Advice: He hit just 7-of-15 shooting, but you don't care about his free throw percentage if you own him, as his struggles from the line are not a surprise, nor is he going to improve from there any time soon. DJ's line will be overshadowed by what Andre Drummond did tonight (19 points, 24 rebounds, four steals, three blocks), but Jordan's line was certainly noteworthy. Make a note to play opposing centers against Hibbert and the Pacers going forward. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:52 pm
    • Roy Hibbert awful in loss to Clippers
      Roy Hibbert was overmatched by DeAndre Jordan on Wednesday and lasted just 16 minutes before leaving with seven points, three rebounds, one assist, zero steals and zero blocks on 3-of-10 shooting.

      Advice: He had four fouls and could do nothing to slow Jordan down, as he racked up 15 points, 23 rebounds and two blocks in the win. Hibbert played well early in the season, but looks lost again. He'll eventually get it turned around, but you might have to bench him until he figures things out. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:32 pm
    • Solo Hill starts, scores 10 points in loss
      Solomon Hill started and hit 2-of-8 shots for two 3-pointers, 10 points, three rebounds, six assists and a steal in 33 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: He's been hit or miss for a couple weeks now and with C.J. Miles healthy and starting to play better, Hill could struggle to hold onto his starting gig for much longer. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:29 pm
    • Kendall Marshall might be in the rotation now
      Kendall Marshall played 17 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday with five points, three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He backed up Brandon Knight tonight and that will likely continue now that the Bucks need Jerryd Bayless to play more shooting guard. Marshall is not worth owning in most leagues, though. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:20 pm
    • Zaza Pachulia plays 26 minutes
      Zaza Pachulia played 26 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday with five points, eight rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

      Advice: He is sharing minutes at center and coach Jason Kidd is not using him at power forward these days. Perhaps one takeaway is the Bucks need Ersan Ilyasova (face) to come back. Pachulia is not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:17 pm
    • Jonas Valanciunas hits 6-of-7, double-doubles
      Jonas Valanciunas hit 6-of-7 shots for 16 points, 10 rebounds and a block in 28 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

      Advice: He totaled just 14 points in his previous two games, but is still averaging 11.6 points and 12.0 rebounds over his last five games, while shooting 53 percent. Keep running him out there and hope he gets enough shots in the Raptors offense. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:51 pm
    • Manu Ginobili scores 21 points in 41 minutes
      Manu Ginobili played 41 minutes against the Grizzlies during a 117-116 triple-overtime loss on Wednesday, scoring 21 points with eight boards, eight assists and four 3-pointers.

      Advice: He started at point guard in the second half and the Spurs probably wanted this one badly. Ginobili has been effective while he's out there this season, but all the DNPs and low minutes will be annoying. He's almost a lock to rest on either Friday or Saturday. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:05 pm
    • Tiago Splitter returns off the bench
      Tiago Splitter returned to action on Wednesday with four points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 24 minutes.

      Advice: He probably has a minutes cap because of all the problems he's dealt with in his lower leg. Splitter has played well in his small amount of playing time, but he's still not going to be worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:03 pm
    • Boris Diaw scores 17 points with 13 boards
      Boris Diaw scored 17 points with 13 boards, five assists and three 3-pointer sin 39 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

      Advice: It was his first double-double of the season and he matched his season high in triples tonight. Diaw has been a valuable piece for the Spurs this season when they sit their veterans. While he is 32, he hasn't sat any game this season, which could change after tonight. He's a low-end player to own in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:56 pm
    • Al Jefferson nets 18 in first, finishes w/ 28
      Al Jefferson scored 18 of his 28 points in the first quarter against the Suns on Wednesday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 36 minutes.

      Advice: He scored more points in the first quarter than any of his previous three games, so this outburst was a surprise. The Suns have been soft on the inside, so kudos to Jefferson for capitalizing. He gets another tasty matchup against the 76ers on Friday, so his fantasy owners should have high hopes. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:18 pm
    • Dwight Howard will play against Denver
      Dwight Howard (knee) will play against the nuggets on Wednesday.

      Advice: He went through warmups and everything appears to be fine. Howard admitted he had some soreness following Saturday, but that's to be expected with how much time he missed. Fantasy owners can use him like they normally would. Expect the Nuggets to be in foul trouble tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 6:28 pm
    • Omri Casspi still not taking on contact
      Omri Casspi (knee) did not go through the contact portions of practice on Wednesday.

      Advice: It sounds like he's out for Thursday against the Bucks. The Kings will likely use a little more Ben McLemore and Derrick Williams to help out Rudy Gay. Casspi is only worth owning in deep leagues, but could emerge should Gay have Achilles problems. Rotoworld.com

    • Dwight Howard (knee) goes through shootaround
      Dwight Howard (knee) participated in the morning shootaround, but is still questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Denver.

      Advice: His status will likely be determined closer to tip-off, so his owners will have to frequently check back for updates. If he is held out of Wednesday's game, Tarik Black would likely start but still wouldn't be an asset in most leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:52 am
    • Tiago Splitter (calf) will play on Wednesday
      Tiago Splitter (calf) will play on Wednesday vs. Memphis.

      Advice: The team made it clear that he was simply rested on Monday, and he did not aggravate his calf injury. That is great news for the Spurs, as they could really use Splitter's size against Marc Gasol Wednesday. However, Splitter is still being eased back into the rotation and can be ignored in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:45 am
    • Manu Ginobili (back) is active for Wednesday
      Manu Ginobili (back) is not listed on the injury report, and will play on Wednesday vs. Memphis.

      Advice: He was given the day off on Monday to rest his ailing back, but he is good to go in a key matchup with a strong Memphis team. Tony Parker (hamstring) is inactive, so Ginobili will continue to handle the ball more and could see an uptick in his assists. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:41 am
    • Omri Casspi (knee) officially out for Tuesday
      Omri Casspi (knee) is officially listed as out for Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder.

      Advice: This will be the fifth straight game that he will miss and there is no clear indication on when he will return to action. Casspi isn't a big part of the rotation and shouldn't be owned in most leagues. Derrick Williams will pick up some extra minutes Tuesday, but is only an option in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Paul Pierce (toe) out Tuesday vs. MIN
      Paul Pierce (sore right toe) will not play Tuesday vs. the Timberwolves, and Otto Porter will draw the start in his place.

      Advice: While Porter is starting, this news will likely translate to more shots going to Bradley Beal. Porter has shown flashes, but remains a risky option in daily leagues coming in with averages of just 5.7 points and 3.3 rebounds. Rotoworld.com

    • Dwight Howard (knee) questionable for Wed.
      Dwight Howard (right knee strain) is now being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Denver

      Advice: Howard returned to the lineup on Saturday, logging 30 minutes and putting up 26 points, 13 rebounds, and three blocks. However, he said he felt "tight" on Sunday, and it's a bit concerning that the Rockets are listing him as questionable after he missed a month with the injury. If he's forced to sit, Tarik Black would slide back into the starting lineup, although he doesn’t do enough to warrant consideration in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 11:56 am
    • Point Bebe: Boris Diaw drops nine dimes
      Boris Diaw handed out a season-high nine assists against the Blazers on Monday with 10 points, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He didn't top 26 minutes in any of his previous six games, but was up to 36 tonight with the Spurs resting the cavalry. Diaw has fared well on most of his nights while Tim Duncan and Tony Parker are resting, so just keep this line in mind in the future. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 11:43 pm
    • Jefferson's struggles continue against Cavs
      Al Jefferson scored 14 points with eight rebounds but did not have any steals or blocks on Monday against the Cavs.

      Advice: Jefferson hit 7-of-13 shots and it wasn't his worst night, but beat writer Rick Bonnell did comment after the game that the big man hasn't played up to expectations this season. A top 60-75 value on the season in 9- and 8-cat leagues, respectively, especially if Lance Stephenson heads out there is a small buy low window. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:09 pm
    • Casspi doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. OKC
      Omri Casspi (knee) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

      Advice: Derrick Williams will pick up more minutes from Casspi's absence and figures to benefit from the Kings' odd infatuation with uptempo offense, though we're skeptical about what that actually entails. Just keep an eye on Williams and Casspi hasn't been the greatest fantasy option, but he could theoretically benefit from an increase in pace. Heck, maybe one of them will be the cherry picker and revolutionize fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Dwight Howard had some soreness
      Dwight Howard "was tight" on Sunday after a game on Saturday, but is good to go for Wednesday.

      Advice: He played 30 minutes after missing a month, so some soreness was to be expected. Luckily, the Rockets have a few days off before they'll play on Wednesday. He can be inserted into most fantasy lineups now. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 1:43 pm
    • Tiago Splitter out on Monday night
      Tiago Splitter (calf) will not play against the Blazers on Monday.

      Advice: The team is calling it "right calf rehabilitation,"so it's not an aggravation. Splitter needed about six weeks to get over his calf strain from the first week of the season and the Spurs are going to take it easy on him. While he's out, expect Aron Baynes to get some extra work. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 12:43 pm
    • Manu Ginobili will not play on Monday
      Manu Ginobili (lower back contusion) will not play on Monday against the Blazers.

      Advice: He was listed with a shoulder injury last week, so a back injury is a little more troubling. While it doesn't sound serious, this likely means Manu is going to sit out for most of the back-to-back sets. He is not worth using this week. Danny Green, Marco Belinelli, Cory Joseph and Austin Daye all benefit. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 12:41 pm
    • Tiago Splitter logs 20 minutes as starting C
      Tiago Splitter made his first start of the season on Sunday, playing 20 minutes to finish with 11 points, six rebounds, three assists, one block and one turnover.

      Advice: Splitter missed 20 of the Spurs' first 21 games this season and it's predictable that San Antonio wouldn't overload him with minutes upon his return -- he's only been in the NBA for five years but he's 29 years old. That said, his per-minute production is enviable and he should still hold value for deep-league owners in need of FG percentage, rebounds and blocks. Rotoworld.com

    • Ty Lawson scores just six points in loss Sun
      Ty Lawson scored just six points on 2-of-10 shooting in Sunday's loss to the Spurs, adding 10 assists, two boards and one steal in 39 minutes.

      Advice: He suffered a left eye laceration and had to briefly leave the game, so maybe he deserves a pass for this performance. Lawson has still been playing out of his mind and as long as his ankle doesn't flare up he should continue to keep it rolling. Expect him to bounce back on Wednesday vs. the Rockets. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 7:57 pm
    • Ty Lawson returns to game on Sunday
      Ty Lawson left Sunday's game against the Spurs with a left eye laceration, but will return.

      Advice: He collided with Manu Ginobili and was clearly shaken up after the play. However, he is coming out to play in the second half and he should be fine moving forward. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 6:02 pm
    • Paul Pierce scores 15 pts w/ zero rebounds
      Paul Pierce was held without a rebound on Sunday for the first time all season, though he added 15 points, one 3-pointer, one assist and two steals in just 25 minutes of action.

      Advice: Pierce's versatility is a saving grace for fantasy owners, and he's been a steady top-100 option with averages of 13.1 points, 1.3 triples, 5.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.5 blocks per game. The return of Bradley Beal hasn't noticeably impacted his production, making him a safe bet for rest-of-season value. Rotoworld.com

    • Tiago Splitter replaces Matt Bonner on Sunday
      Tiago Splitter will draw the start for the Spurs against the Nuggets on Sunday, replacing Matt Bonner.

      Advice: Splitter likely won't play very many minutes as the Spurs ease him back into action, but owners in deep leagues should monitor him in case he gets hot. The Spurs change their lineups often, so this likely won't be a permanent move. Bonner, however, shouldn't be owned in almost any league and this news solidifies that. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 5:00 pm
    • Dwight Howard scores 26 points in his return
      Dwight Howard played 30 minutes in his return to the lineup against the Nuggets on Saturday, scoring 26 points with 13 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks.

      Advice: He was 9-of-11 from the field and 8-of-18 from the line, so it was like he never left. Howard picked up his 10,000th rebound of his career tonight and dominated in the paint on both ends. The Rockets are off until Wednesday, so Dwight gets to heal after being off for almost one month. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 9:05 pm
    • Al Jefferson plays poorly in loss to Brooklyn
      Al Jefferson had a terrible game in a loss to Brooklyn on Saturday, scoring eight points on 4-of-10 shooting to with five rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 23 minutes.

      Advice: After putting together three decent games in a row in which he scored 16 or more points, Jefferson came crashing down in a big way and this one has to got to be tough for his owners. The Hornets were out of this game in a hurry and it is frustrating to see him play just 23 minutes. However, Jefferson should once again bounce back and owners will have no choice but to be patient. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 7:50 pm
    • Chris Paul has six turnovers again in loss
      Chris Paul turned the ball over six times for the second consecutive night on Saturday during a loss to the Bucks, adding 10 points, five rebounds, seven assists and one steal.

      Advice: He had just five turnovers in his first six games combined, so this recent cold spell seems like crazy talk. Perhaps the Wizards made a blueprint for CP3 on Friday night with extra ball pressure, but he'll get it figured out. Paul is still the second-best fantasy point guard behind Stephen Curry. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 7:24 pm
    • Solomon Hill still struggling as starter
      Solomon Hill struggled in a start against the Blazers on Saturday with eight points, seven rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

      Advice: He made just 4-of-13 from the field and can't get it going. Hill was off to a horrible start in training camp and to start the season, but came on about a month ago. However, he's really fallen apart in his last five, making just 32.6 percent from the field for averages of 8.6 points, 3.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 0.2 steals. Leave him on the wire even with C.J. Miles (knee) banged up. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:27 pm
    • Roy Hibbert double-doubles in a loss
      Roy Hibbert double-doubled against the Blazers on Saturday with 10 points, 10 boards, one assist and one block in 30 minutes.

      Advice: It wasn't a great game, but it was a step from what he was doing. In his previous six games since his injury, Hibbert averaged just 8.5 points, 5.7 boards and 1.0 blocks on 40.0 percent from the field. His ankle isn't quite back to 100 percent, but maybe a date with the Lakers on Monday will help him out. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:15 pm
    • Omri Casspi (knee) out on Saturday night
      Omri Casspi (knee) will not play on Saturday night.

      Advice: He was probable for the game, but had a setback. Casspi usually backs up Rudy Gay at small forward, but the Kings will look to Derrick Williams and Ben McLemore to help out a bit more tonight. Rotoworld.com

    • Dwight Howard expected to play 20-24 minutes
      Dwight Howard (knee) is expected to play 20-24 minutes in his return on Saturday.

      Advice: He'll play in 4-5 minute spurts, according to coach Kevin McHale. The Rockets played really well without Howard and they certainly won't want him to aggravate his knee injury, so he could see limited playing time for a few games. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 3:26 pm
    • Solomon Hill starting against the Blazers
      Solomon Hill is starting in place of C.J. Miles (knee) on Saturday against the Blazers.

      Advice: Hill was bumped from the starting lineup on Friday and will be thrust back into it with the Miles injury. Hill is really struggling right now, which prompted coach Frank Vogel to make the switch. Hill is a risky player to start tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 2:31 pm
    • Dwight Howard will play on Saturday vs. DEN
      Dwight Howard (knee) will play against the Nuggets on Saturday.

      Advice: "I'm just thankful to be back out there," Howard said. "Nobody wants to sit on the bench in a suit and watch his team play." The Rockets have been rolling without him, winning nine of their last 10 games. Howard has been out since Nov. 19 and should get a good amount of minutes. Donatas Motiejunas should see his usage rate go down while Tarik Black and Joey Dorsey will lose most of their minutes. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:01 pm
    • Dwight Howard (knee) upgraded to probable
      Dwight Howard (knee) was upgraded to probable for Saturday's game vs. the Nuggets.

      Advice: After sitting out for 11 games in a row, Howard may finally make his return to the court in a favorable matchup with Denver. There is still a chance he sits, so owners need to be on alert for any updates prior to the game. If Howard sits, Donatas Motiejunas will continue to be a must-start option while Tarik Black and Joey Dorsey will also see increased run. Rotoworld.com

    • Roy Hibbert's ankle making steady progress
      Roy Hibbert said on Friday that his ankle is getting better, but that he is still not at 100 percent.

      Advice: His ankle has clearly had an impact on his play of late, and he was held to just six points, two rebounds and two blocks Friday's loss to the Raptors. Owners have no choice but to patient for now, and they may want to consider benching him until he turns it around. However, the good news is that Hibbert is playing and he will look to bounce back against Portland on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

      Manu Ginobili (rest) returned to action on Friday against the Lakers, scoring 18 points on 6-of-16 shooting with three treys, three boards, four assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

      Advice: Aside from the random games off Ginobili has been a low-end value in 12-team leagues when on the floor. Rotoworld.com

    • Valanciunas double-doubles in win
      Jonas Valanciunas double-doubled for a career-high third straight time in the Raptors' 106-94 win over the Pacers on Friday, scoring 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting with 14 rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes.

      Advice: It's not the cleanest line but he did add 4-of-4 free throws to shine it up. Owners are hoping there will be a tipping point that frees Valanciunas up for heavy minutes, but it's still unclear if we're going to see that this season. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:13 pm
    • Hibbert grabs just two rebounds on Friday
      Roy Hibbert grabbed just two rebounds to go with six points and two blocks over 28 minutes in Friday's loss to the Raptors.

      Advice: Hibbert is in a major funk since his ankle injury, which derailed what started as a promising season. And as guys start to get healthy, he won't be Plan A, B and C anymore. Let's give him another game or two to get right before projecting him below his current top 75-80 value on the season. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:57 pm
    • Hill scores 16 points with three blocks
      Solomon Hill moved into a bench role on Friday but was productive when C.J. Miles (knee) left the game, scoring 16 points on 5-of-8 shootijng (1-of-2 from deep, 5-of-6 from the line) with three rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 30 minutes.

      Advice: Miles is hoping to play Saturday so Hill's minutes are in jeopardy, and even when he was getting a full workload he was barely worth owning. Outside of deep leagues, owners shouldn't chase here. Rotoworld.com

    • DeAndre Jordan makes all three FTs
      DeAndre Jordan made all four shots from the field and all three from the line for 11 points during a 104-96 loss to the Wizards on Friday with eight rebounds, one steal and one block.

      Advice: It was the first time he's attempted at least three attempts from the line and made all of them since Feb. 12 and also the first time he made 100 percent in a game this season. In other news he extended his league-leading field goal shooting to 74.3 percent. Jordan actually had a non-dunk tonight, too. He's a monster around the rim. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Paul turns the ball over six times
      Chris Paul turned the ball over six times on Friday against the Wizards with 19 points, seven rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: It was a season high in turnovers and his second lowest assist total, so John Wall gets a ton of credit here. Paul flirted with a triple-double in his previous two games and he'll likely fill the stat sheet against the Bucks on Saturday. Rotoworld.com

      Solomon Hill will come off the bench against the Clippers on Friday.

      Advice: He looked like he was safe, but only played 17 minutes on Wednesday. Hill is stuck in a bad slump over his last five, making just 34.1 percent from the field for 7.2 points per game. If you still own him in a standard, it's time to start looking for other options. Rotoworld.com

    • Omri Casspi now expected to play Saturday
      Omri Casspi (knee) is expected to play on Saturday against the Pistons.

      Advice: He went through practice on Friday after missing Thursday's game action. Casspi will back up Rudy Gay and could eventually have fantasy value should Gay need to miss time. Rotoworld.com

    • Omri Casspi at practice on Friday
      Omri Casspi (knee) was on the court at Friday's practice with a brace on his left knee.

      Advice: He needed an injection on Thursday and missed the game against the Rockets. Casspi is likely going to miss another game and the team will have to count on Ben McLemore and Derrick Williams a bit more. Nick Stauskas also helped with the minutes, but he's struggled badly. Rotoworld.com

    • Dwight Howard listed as doubtful for now
      Dwight Howard (knee) is still listed as doubtful for Saturday.

      Advice: The Rockets will likely update his status tomorrow and he is expected to be upgraded in some capacity. Howard and the Rockets are hopeful he can play, so players like Donatas Motiejunas, Tarik Black and Joey Dorsey will lose some playing time. Rotoworld.com

    • Omri Casspi gets injection for inflammation
      Omri Casspi (left knee) received a shot for the inflammation due to the contusion of his knee.

      Advice: The injury is not considered serious, but it sounds like he's going to miss some time based on needing an injection. Derrick Williams has stepped up so far, but it's unlikely to matter much in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Omri Casspi (knee contusion) out for Thursday
      Omri Casspi (left knee contusion) will not play against the Rockets on Thursday.

      Advice: He won't get a revenge game against his former team and it's unclear how much time he'll miss. Knee contusions have occurred far too often this season and Casspi should be considered questionable for the weekend. Expect Derrick Williams to get more run at the three and perhaps Ben McLemore logs a few minutes there as well. Rotoworld.com

    • Boris Diaw fills it up against the Knicks
      Boris Diaw scored 12 points in an easy 109-95 win over the Knicks on Wednesday with three rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: That's three games in a row with at least four assists and Diaw's 3.4 per game on the year are his highest with the Spurs. Diaw has provided low-end fantasy value in standard leagues, but he should be worthy of starting in most formats on the nights coach Gregg Popovich sits his stars. Rotoworld.com

    • Tiago Splitter plays eight minutes vs. Knicks
      Tiago Splitter played eight minutes against the Knicks on Wednesday with three points, one rebound, one assist and two blocks.

      Advice: Not a bad start with the blocks and Splitter should have decent per-minute value. The problem is that the Spurs are going to keep his minutes in check because they don't want Splitter to aggravate his calf issue. He won't be worth owning in most leagues for a bit. Rotoworld.com

    • Al Jefferson scores 23 with 14 boards vs. BOS
      Al Jefferson dominated against the Celtics during a 96-87 win on Wednesday with 23 points, 14 boards, three assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes.

      Advice: That's back-to-back games with double-doubles for Jefferson and he's coming around. He did have some shooting issue coming into this game, making just 39.5 percent from the field in his previous three games. He is unlikely to have this kind of success against the Grizzlies on Friday. Rotoworld.com

    • Roy Hibbert plays 12 minutes in loss to Clips
      Roy Hibbert played just 12 minutes and had four points, three rebounds and zero blocks on 2-of-4 shooting in Wednesday's loss.

      Advice: He's not hurt, but did have four quick fouls and was dominated by DeAndre Jordan when he was on the court. That makes four straight games in single digits for Hibbert after he got the season off to a hot start, and this could be a case of deja vu all over again. He'll bounce back, but he might have to get out of Frank Vogel's doghouse before it happens. Rotoworld.com

    • Solomon Hill bottoms out on Wednesday
      Solomon Hill played just 17 minutes and hit 1-of-7 shots for four points and three assists in another start for the Pacers on Wednesday.

      Advice: He has scored five or fewer points in three of his last five games and the Pacers benched most of their starters tonight, including Hill. He'll get hot again at some point, but the sudden emergence of C.J. Miles (30 points, 7 3-pointers tonight), could spell disaster for Hill going forward. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Paul destroys Pacers with 17-8-15
      Chris Paul hit 7-of-16 shots for 17 points, eight rebounds, 15 assists and three steals in Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

      Advice: The Pacers really don't have a point guard to speak of and CP3 took advantage tonight. He had a season-high 16 dimes on Saturday and put a an equally dominant line tonight, although a 3-pointer or two would have been nice from one of the league's best point guards. Rotoworld.com

    • DeAndre Jordan dominates Pacers for 12 & 19
      DeAndre Jordan had 12 points, 19 rebounds, a steal and three blocks in a dominant performance over the Pacers on Wednesday.

      Advice: He hit 5-of-8 shots and 2-of-3 free throws in one of his best performances of the season. He should be in your lineup night in and night out. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:20 pm
    • Tiago Splitter getting 8-12 minutes
      Tiago Splitter will play 8-12 minutes on Wednesday against the Knicks.

      Advice: It'll be his first game in the lineup all season. Splitter has dealt with calf issues for much of the past two seasons and the Spurs are going to be careful. If Tim Duncan sits, Aron Baynes is the preferred big-man play. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 4:10 pm
    • Manu Ginobili (rest) won't play vs. New York
      Manu Ginobili (rest) will not play vs. the Knicks on Wednesday.

      Advice: The Spurs are playing the second game in a back-to-back set, so Ginobili's absence shouldn't shock fantasy owners. Danny Green, Marco Belinelli and Cory Joseph will gain the most in Manu's absence, though he should be ready to resume his typical role vs. the Lakers on Friday. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 4:07 pm
    • Report saying Spurs Big 3 are out
      There is a report of Manu Ginobili (rest), Tim Duncan (rest) and Tony Parker (hamstring) are out Wednesday against the Knicks.

      Advice: The report was immediately shot down by plugged-in beat reporter Mike Monroe, so fantasy owners shouldn't completely rule out the Big Three. We'll keep our eyes peeled for an update. For now they're questionable. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 2:22 pm
    • Tiago Splitter is probable on Wednesday
      Tiago Splitter (calf) is probable to face the Knicks on Wednesday.

      Advice: It will be his season debut and the Spurs are more inclined to play him now with Kawhi Leonard (hand) out. Splitter wasn't great last season, so fantasy owners should just take a wait-and-see approach. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 1:49 pm
    • Manu Ginobili is questionable vs. NYK
      Manu Ginobili (rest) is questionable to face the Knicks on Wednesday.

      Advice: He has sat out the second half of a back-to-back earlier this month, so he certainly could miss this one. If he's out, Danny Green, Marco Belinelli and Austin Daye will likely help the scoring burden. Rotoworld.com

    • Tiago Splitter (calf) could return Wednesday
      Tiago Splitter (calf) could return for Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

      Advice: Splitter has seen just 10 minutes of action this season, so it is a sure bet that the Spurs will bring him along very slowly. Outside of extremely deep leagues, Splitter won't be an asset for the foreseeable future, but his return could dampen the value of Boris Diaw and the physical bruiser they call Aron Baynes.

    • Manu Ginobili shoots 3-of-17 in loss to Jazz
      Manu Ginobili, who sat out Saturday's game as a precaution, returned on Tuesday with 10 points, eight assists and two steals, but he shot just 3-of-17 from the field.

      Advice: This was the first time in Ginobili's career that he took at least 17 shots but made fewer than five of his attempts. He was also 3-of-5 at the FT line and he turned the ball over four times, yet he still finished with a +/- rating of +6 in a game the Spurs lost. He'll be eager to redeem himself vs. the Knicks on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonas Valanciunas posts 18 & 15 in defeat
      Jonas Valanciunas scored 18 points and grabbed a season-high 15 rebounds on Tuesday, making 6-of-7 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs in 37 minutes vs. the Cavaliers.

      Advice: JV has now double-doubled in two straight games for the first time this season, and he's playing at a different level than he had through the first few weeks of the season. Fantasy owners' patience is beginning to pay off and coach Dwane Casey has played JV more than 30 minutes in five of the past six games, which is a huge development for his value. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 6:44 pm
    • Tiago Splitter game-time decision for Weds
      Tiago Splitter (calf) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Knicks, according to head coach Gregg Popovich.

      Advice: Splitter's eventual return will cut into the minutes and production of Boris Diaw, Matt Bonner, and Aron Baynes, but there's no reason to stash the big man in any fantasy league right now. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 10:10 am
    • Pierce scores season-best 28 points in win
      Paul Pierce scored a season-high 28 points on 9-of-12 shooting (4-of-5 3PTs, 6-of-6 FTs) with seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in Monday's double-overtime win.

      Advice: Pierce is quietly putting up top 85-100 value this season and though he carries plenty of risk due to his mileage, he should be in most lineups. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonas Valanciunas double-doubles w/ 4 blocks
      Jonas Valanciunas had one of his best games of the season against the Nuggets on Monday with 18 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks in 31 minutes.

      Advice: He set a season high with his four blocks and added his double-double since Nov. 24. Valanciunas has been inconsistent, but he is still posting top-80 value even before this game. His fantasy owners should just stay the course and look for him to come on strong late like he has in every season he's been in the NBA. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:00 pm
    • Ty Lawson scores 22 with 12 dimes
      Ty Lawson scored 22 points during a 112-107 overtime loss to the Raptors on Monday, adding six rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 49 minutes.

      Advice: He is dropping dimes all over the place and is just 0.4 per game behind Rajon Rondo for the league lead. We always knew Lawson was going to put up big numbers, but the concerns of his ankle make him a possible sell-high player. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:45 pm
    • Paul Pierce would welcome return to Celtics
      Paul Pierce would welcome a return to the Boston Celtics.

      Advice: "We’ll see if the opportunity presents itself," he said. Maybe if there is an opportunity, I would love to." Pierce is clearly still emotionally tied to the Celtics, and it would be unsurprising to see him return to the franchise in the future. Rotoworld.com
