  • Noah Vonleh plays six minutes in loss
    Noah Vonleh was benched at halftime in Tuesday's loss to the Mavericks, finishing with one rebound in six minutes.

    Advice: The writing has been on the wall for Vonleh for a few games now, but it appears that Meyers Leonard will reclaim his spot in the starting lineup. Vonleh's owners should look for other options. 47 minutes ago
  • Omer Asik plays five minutes off the bench
    Omer Asik didn't record any stats in five minutes off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Here's your daily reminder that the Pelicans signed him to a five-year, $58 million deal during the offseason. Alexis Ajinca will likely continue to start at center for New Orleans, so it's safe to cut Asik in all leagues. Today, 9:11 pm
  • Alexis Ajinca scores 10 points in start
    Alexis Ajinca started at center on Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies, scoring 10 points with three boards in 13 minutes.

    Advice: He likely would've played a lot more, but he got into some foul trouble. Omer Asik played just five minutes off the bench, so Ajinca should get another chance to start on Wednesday vs. the Rockets. To be clear, Ajinca is only worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues and we could see Anthony Davis playing a lot more center moving forward as well. Today, 9:07 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica is good and bad in loss
    Nemanja Bjelica hit just 1-of-5 shots in 24 minutes on Tuesday, but still finished with three points, eight rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in the loss.

    Advice: He's still working through a knee injury and has yet to become a consistent fantasy performer, but is still a guy you'll want to keep a close eye on in case he gets hot and can do it consistently. The signs are there that he can, but it's more a matter of will he? Today, 8:49 pm
  • Andrew Nicholson coming on for Magic
    Andrew Nicholson played 31 minutes, hit 6-of-11 shots and finished with 15 points and six rebounds in Tuesday's win.

    Advice: Channing Frye was scoreless in another start tonight and you have to wonder if Nicholson is the next player up. Nicholson feels like a Scott Skiles guy, He's averaging 11.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five, and those numbers would likely go up if he replaces Frye as the starting PF. Today, 8:39 pm
  • Jon Leuer disappears in loss to Nets
    Jon Leuer had just two points and two rebounds in 12 minutes off the Suns' bench on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's a curious line since Markieff Morris played so poorly tonight, and Leuer had been hot. Leuer's like a human yo-yo right now, scoring 2, 16, 0, 20 and 6 points in each of his last five games, and it would likely take an injury to Morris for him to be worth a serious look in standard leagues. Today, 8:08 pm
  • Mirza Teletovic quietly playing well for Suns
    Mirza Teletovic came off the bench to hit 4-of-9 shots (all 3-pointers) for 12 points and five rebounds in Tuesday's loss.

    Advice: He's played very well in three straight and is averaging 11.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 3.2 3-pointers over his last five games, and could be a sneaky deep-league add if you're looking for a 3-point specialist. Today, 8:05 pm
  • Jerami Grant heating up for Sixers
    Jerami Grant hit 6-of-7 shots for 14 points, seven rebounds, four assists, a steal and four blocks in 31 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Lakers.

    Advice: Grant is starting to come on in the starting lineup for Philly, averaging 14.3 points, 5.7 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 2.5 blocks and 1.3 3-pointers over his last three games. And even the return of Nerlens Noel didn't slow him down tonight. It's probably time to pick him up. Today, 7:29 pm
  • Omer Asik benched for Tuesday's game
    Omer Asik will come off the bench behind Alexis Ajinca for Tuesday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Asik has been terrible all season and that is putting it nicely. If you haven't already cut him, now is the time to do so. He is averaging 1.4 points and 4.8 rebounds this season and signed a five-year, $58 million deal this summer. Probably not the best decision for New Orleans. Today, 3:42 pm
  • Alexis Ajinca starting, Omer Asik benched
    Alexis Ajinca will enter the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies, sending Omer Asik to the bench.

    Advice: Ajinca hasn't been great as a starter this season, owning averages of 8.0 points, 6.7 boards and 1.3 blocks per game, and with a tough matchup against the Grizzlies, he doesn't make for a very enticing DFS play. Asik hasn't been playing much this season, averaging just 1.6 points and 5.2 rebounds on 18.2 percent shooting through his 14.9 minutes as a starter, so his demotion to the second-unit isn't going to significantly alter New Orleans' rotations. Today, 3:38 pm
  • Willie Reed to join the active roster Tuesday
    Willie Reed will be on the active roster for Tuesday's game against the Suns, with Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) on the inactive list.

    Advice: Reed has yet to make his regular-season debut, and there are no guarantees that will change tonight. He's not worth owning in any format. Today, 3:21 pm
  • Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) without timetable
    Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) currently is without an official timetable to return.

    Advice: Given Bargnani's extensive injury history, partnered with the tricky nature of a hamstring injury, Andrea could be looking at a potentially lengthy absence. The oft-injured big man is averaging just 5.9 points and not much else on the season on 41.0 percent shooting, so he can be sent to the wire in all formats with this news. Thomas Robinson will likely pick up some extra minutes sans Bargnani, but not enough to make a difference in most formats. Today, 3:09 pm
  • Cody Zeller will start at C for CHA on Weds
    Cody Zeller will start at center for the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: With Al Jefferson (calf) out 2-3 weeks, head coach Steve Clifford said he's looking for someone to provide a post presence. Zeller will get first crack at filling that void and is worth a pickup in deeper leagues due to his expected uptick in minutes. Today, 10:39 am
  • Branden Dawson recalled from D-League
    The Clippers have recalled Branden Dawson from the D-League.

    Advice: The second-round pick has yet to play in a game this season, and despite the call-up, can be ignored in all fantasy leagues. Today, 7:04 am
  • Dwight Powell losing minutes
    Dwight Powell matched his season-low 12 minutes against the Kings on Monday with two points, six rebounds and one block.

    Advice: Ouch. His minutes have really suffered since JaVale McGee has returned. Powell has not done much in his last four games, combined for just 14 points, 21 boards, four blocks and three steals. He probably can be let go until another Mavs big man gets hurt, which seems inevitable at some point. Yesterday, 11:38 pm
  • Luc Mbah a Moute draws another start
    Luc Mbah a Moute drew another start on Monday vs. the Blazers and scored four points with five boards and one assist in 24 minutes.

    Advice: He attempted just three shots on the night and his role is basically just to defend. He doesn't have much upside and it's not a lock that he will continue to start, so he's a very shaky option even in deep leagues. Yesterday, 10:33 pm
  • Darrell Arthur plays 21 minutes off bench
    Darrell Arthur came off the bench for Monday's game and scored four points with three boards and two steals in 21 minutes.

    Advice: His playing time could've been even worse, but the Nuggets were blown out of this one. In case it's not obvious, Arthur won't be a fantasy asset while the Nuggets are at full strength. Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Clippers recall Dawson and Wilcox
    The Clippers have recalled Branden Dawson and C.J. Wilcox from the D-League.

    Advice: Neither player will be in the rotation any time soon, and they can continue to be ignored in fantasy leagues. Yesterday, 6:22 pm
  • Darrell Arthur will come off the bench
    Darrell Arthur will come off the bench for Monday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Kenneth Faried is healthy again and will rejoin the first unit, so this was an expected move. If you picked up Arthur recently, it's time to move on. Yesterday, 4:56 pm
  • Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) out on Tuesday
    Andrea Bargnani (tight left hamstring) has already been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

    Advice: It's the same hamstring that gave him issues this preseason and opposite of the one that troubled him during his stint with the Knicks last year. New season, same story for Bargnani. Thomas Robinson should pick up a few extra minutes in AB's absence. Yesterday, 11:04 am
  • Noah Vonleh frustrated by his foul trouble
    Noah Vonleh has been frustrated with how many fouls are being called on him.

    Advice: "Some of the fouls they are calling … I don’t think they are fouls," Vonleh said. "My hands are straight up. I’m talking to the ref … I guess I just have to keep working through that." Even though he's been starting at power forward with Meyers Leonard (shoulder) working his way back in, Vonleh hasn't exceeded 20 minutes since November 18. He's averaging just 4.7 points and 4.3 rebounds on 45.8 percent shooting as a starter. Yesterday, 10:49 am
  • Darrell Arthur working on his 3-point range
    Darrell Arthur has been working on his three-point range.

    Advice: Arthur connected on just 23.6 percent of his 110 3-point attempts last season, but he's 4-of-12 (33.3 percent) so far this season. "I've been working on it, just trying to stay consistent," Arthur said. "Just trying to find my way into the game. And lately, the shot has come to me." Arthur has played well when given the opportunity, averaging 12.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.5 blocks on 56.1 percent in 30 minutes of action over four games as a starter. Yesterday, 10:04 am
  • Cody Zeller returned to action on Sunday November 29. Sunday, 11:57 pm
  • Jerami Grant fills stat sheet in 30 minutes
    Jerami Grant filled up the stat sheet in 30 minutes on Sunday, notching 11 points with one 3-pointer, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks.

    Advice: He only turned the ball over once and this is the third straight game in which Grant has at least one steal and one block. His value is dented by poor percentages (41.8% FGs, 71.0% FTs), but he's worth deploying while coach Brett Brown is giving him 30-32 minutes per game. Sunday, 7:13 pm
  • Mirza Teletovic drains season-high six 3-pts
    Mirza Teletovic drained a season-high six 3-pointers during Sunday's road win, finishing with 20 points, two rebounds and one assist in only 18 minutes of action.

    Advice: He fell one 3-pointer shy of his career high against a Raptors team that's been middle-of-the-pack in 3-point defense. Teletovic's minutes have trended up lately, settling in the 20-24 range, but he's only worth considering if you need an injection of 3-pointers. Sunday, 6:31 pm
  • Jon Leuer scores 16 points off Suns' bench
    Jon Leuer came off the bench on Sunday to score 16 points with two 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists and one block in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Markieff Morris wasn't playing well and Tyson Chandler (hamstring) was out, so Leuer took full advantage of some extra opportunities. He's alternated big games with a series of duds all season, and belongs on the waiver wire in the preponderance of leagues. Sunday, 6:30 pm
  • Andrew Nicholson posts 14 & 8 w/ two triples
    Andrew Nicholson scored 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting vs. Boston, hitting two 3-pointers with eight rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes.

    Advice: In the four games since claiming a larger role in Scott Skiles' rotation, Nicholson has averaged 10.5 points, 1.7 triples, 6.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 24.0 minutes. Orlando has won three straight, so Nicholson isn't in imminent danger of losing his current role, and he's producing enough to be owned in leagues with 16 or more teams. Sunday, 6:18 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) plays well in return
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) had 10 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one assist in Sunday's loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: He made all four of his shot attempts in 22 minutes of action, and looked good considering he'd missed the past four games. Sam Mitchell has been tinkering with his rotation lately and there are no guarantees that Bjelica will average a solid 26-28 minutes per game, but he's worth holding onto while we find out. Sunday, 4:36 pm
  • Luc Mbah a Moute starts, plays 23 mins Sunday
    Luc Mbah a Moute started at SF vs. the Wolves and posted seven points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Mbah a Moute hasn't cracked top-200 fantasy value since the 2010-11 season and he offers no upside as part of a timeshare with Paul Pierce, Lance Stephenson and Wes Johnson. Deep league owners should give him a look while he's starting, but the vast majority should ignore him. Sunday, 4:24 pm
  • Cody Zeller picks up four fouls in 16 minutes
    Cody Zeller started the second-half of Sunday's win over the Bucks with Al Jefferson going down with a calf injury, but only managed to put up two points, one rebound and one assist in 16 minutes of play.

    Advice: He also tallied four fouls in his 16 minutes of playing time, which is kind of impressive. Zeller is not a stat sheet stuffer and he struggles to even produce marginal stats when given the minutes, so while his playing time could go up if Jefferson is forced to miss time, he doesn't warrant a pickup in most formats. Sunday, 3:47 pm
  • Bargnani (hamstring) will not return Sunday
    Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) will not return to Sunday's game vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: It's his left hamstring, so it's the same issue that robbed him of most of the preseason. Bargnani doesn't tend to get over injuries quickly, so he could be looking at a lengthy absence. With Bargnani sidelined, Thomas Robinson might be able to see a few extra minutes in the rotation. Sunday, 3:42 pm
  • Willie Reed inactive Sunday vs. the Pistons
    Willie Reed will not be available for Sunday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: Donald Sloan is on the active roster, so Reed will not be available tonight. Reed has yet to make his regular-season debut, and should not be owned in any format. Sunday, 2:05 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will play on Sunday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will be available to play Sunday against the Clippers.

    Advice: Bjelica will return from a four-game absence on Sunday, although he's likely going to be eased back into the rotation. Owners in most leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with Bjelica as he was in a pretty bad slump before going down with the injury. Adreian Payne and Shabazz Muhammad's fantasy values will take a hit with the return of Bjelica, and Gorgui Dieng could also lose some minutes. Sunday, 11:34 am
  • Luc Mbah a Moute will start on Sunday for LAC
    Luc Mbah a Moute will start in place of Wes Johnson for Sunday's game vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: The Clippers can't seem to get consistent production out of guys like Johnson, Paul Pierce and Lance Stephenson, so now it's Mbah a Moute's turn. The veteran is averaging less than five minutes per game this season and is more of a defensive specialist, so there's no need to add him in any format. Sunday, 11:00 am
  • Cody Zeller, Frank Kaminsky will play Sunday
    Cody Zeller (right shoulder contusion) and Frank Kaminsky (back) will play on Sunday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Zeller has been losing playing time to Kaminsky lately, so he isn't worth using in most leagues. The good news is that his shoulder is fine, so Marvin Williams won't have to log a ton of minutes at power forward on Sunday. Sunday, 9:30 am
  • Bjelica (knee) expected to play Sunday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Bjelica has missed the last four games due to a knee contusion, but he appears to be all set to return to the court on Sunday. He was in a slump prior to going to down with the injury, so it makes some sense to see if he turn things around before adding him in standard leagues. With Bjelica expected to be available, Adreian Payne could fall out of the rotation. Sunday, 9:01 am
  • Darrell Arthur looks good in start
    Darrell Arthur started against the Mavs on Saturday with 16 points, five rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and three turnovers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: As nice as this line is, Arthur's minutes should be trending down with Kenneth Faried likely to be in the starting lineup on Monday. Arthur has arguably been the best big man on the roster this month, so he might still be a hold in 16-team leagues. Coach Mike Malone seems to like him. Saturday, 9:00 pm
  • Willie Reed will be active on Saturday
    Willie Reed (left thumb) will be active for the first time this season on Saturday vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: He's been sidelined since October after having surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb, but he recently was cleared for contact and should be ready to play if his name is called. He won't be in the rotation right away, so owners in deeper leagues can just keep an eye on him for now. Saturday, 3:29 pm
  • Cody Zeller (shoulder) questionable Sunday
    Cody Zeller (right shoulder contusion) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Zeller had surgery on his right shoulder back in April, but it isn't clear if these two issues are related. Zeller is currently losing ground to Frank Kaminsky (back) in the rotation, so this isn't encouraging for his outlook. Expect Marvin Williams to be very busy if Zeller can't play on Sunday. Saturday, 10:22 am
  • Jerami Grant scores 18 points, logs mins at C
    Jerami Grant matched his career-high 18 points against the Rockets on Friday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He logged some pretty heavy minutes at center tonight and actually won the jump ball over Dwight Howard to start the game. Grant should be looking at some extra minutes while Nerlens Noel (knee) is out, which is undetermined at this time. Grant has some nice upside, but he's still just a fringe guy in standard leagues. You could do worse, though. Friday, 10:14 pm
  • Cody Zeller gets 15 minutes
    Cody Zeller played 15 minutes against the Cavs on Friday with seven points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

    Advice: With the Hornets leaning more on Frank Kaminsky and giving Marvin Williams more minutes at the four, that meant less playing time for Zeller. He's only worth owning in deep leagues. Friday, 7:16 pm
  • Andrew Nicholson scores just three points
    Andrew Nicholson played 25 minutes against the Bucks on Friday with three points, seven rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer on 1-of-7 from the field.

    Advice: He played more minutes tonight than any other Magic big man. Nicholson was the first big off the bench and played minutes at both power forward and center tonight. He's still more of a 16-team guy, but coach Scott Skiles apparently likes him more than anyone in the NBA. Most owners should just keep an eye on him, especially since he didn't play well tonight. Friday, 6:59 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) out Friday vs. SAC
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: It'll be Bjelica's fourth straight game on the sidelines, and he remains without a clear timetable to return. Gorgui Dieng has seen his minutes go up recently, and it'll be interesting to see if that trend continues once Bjelica is healthy. Adreian Payne will also pick up some extra minutes sans Bjelica, but he won't see enough floor time to make an impact in most leagues. Friday, 6:06 pm
  • Jerami Grant starting at small forward
    Jerami Grant will start at small forward against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: Robert Covington will slide over to shooting guard tonight. Grant does put up better numbers as a power forward, but he should still get a nice amount of run tonight with a different rotation. Friday, 3:45 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica likely out on Friday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is not likely to play on Friday against the Kings.

    Advice: He will be a game-time call, but fantasy owners should plan on him sitting. Bjelica was really struggling before his injury, so he's justifiably been cut in several leagues. Expect to see a lot of small-ball tonight with Adreian Payne getting most of the PF minutes. Payne isn't a great play. Friday, 3:12 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica is a game-time call
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is a game-time decision to play against the Kings on Friday.

    Advice: He was able to go through at least some of practice today. The Wolves haven't been able to get much out of the power forward spot in the past two weeks with Bjelica struggling before his injury and Adreian Payne in a slump, too. Tayshaun Prince has played a lot of stretch four and Shabazz Muhammad has stepped up a tad. Fantasy owners should probably steer clear of this situation. Friday, 12:05 pm
  • Reed (thumb) does some non-contact work
    Willie Reed (left thumb) was able to do some non-contact work at practice on Friday.

    Advice: We haven't heard much about Reed' status, but he has been sidelined since October after having surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb. Reed was initially targeting a return to the court in December, so this report does bode well for that timetable. Reed still isn't worth a flier in almost any league, though. Friday, 10:41 am
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) hopeful to play Friday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is feeling better and is hopeful to play on Friday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: He's missed the past three games due to a knee contusion, and it should be noted that he was in a major slump prior to going down. Bjelica does have talent and upside, but feel free to monitor him from the waiver wire until he turns things around. Friday, 9:09 am
  • Omer Asik plays 10 minutes
    Omer Asik played 10 minutes in the starting lineup against the Suns on Wednesday with three rebounds and one block.

    Advice: Exhibit O of how starting doesn't mean everything in fantasy. Asik has almost no fantasy value. Why did the Pelicans sign him this summer again? Wednesday, 11:04 pm
  • Jon Leuer shines as primary center
    Jon Leuer was outstanding against the Pelicans on Wednesday with 20 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: He certainly didn't handle the defensive side of things with Anthony Davis going off, but Leuer is in a nice groove on offense. He's basically splitting the backup center job with Alex Len depending on the matchup. With Tyson Chandler (illness) likely back for the Warriors on Friday, Leuer is more of an 18-team stash. Wednesday, 10:48 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will not play
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will not play against the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Advice: It'll be his third game out due to knee soreness from his contusion. After the former EuroLeague MVP was playing well earlier this month, his injury has justifiably sent him to the waiver wire. Adreian Payne and Shabazz Muhammad gain some value here. Wednesday, 4:05 pm
  • Jerami Grant bumped to the bench
    Jerami Grant will come off the bench against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Advice: He should be playing more power forward now and he's really the third big on the active roster with no true bigs behind Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor. Grant should still see minutes in the 25-29 range tonight. Wednesday, 3:14 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Nemanja Bjelica (left knee contusion) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Advice: Bjelica was limited during Tuesday's practice, so it wouldn't be shocking to see him spend another game on the sidelines. If he's out, Adreian Payne and Shabazz Muhammad will split his minutes, but neither guy makes for a great play in most leagues. Wednesday, 7:37 am
  • Noah Vonleh quiet in another start
    Noah Vonleh started again on Tuesday, but hit just 3-of-7 shots for seven points, three rebounds and a block in 12 minutes.

    Advice: Ed Davis played 35 minutes off the bench and is the starter for all intents and purposes, and finished with 12 points, 13 rebounds, three steals and two blocks. With Meyers Leonard out, Davis is the guy you want to own here. Tuesday, 10:01 pm
  • Cody Zeller returned to action on Monday November 23. Monday, 11:26 pm
  • Mirza Teletovic gets run again
    Mirza Teletovic played 23 minutes off the bench on Monday with nine points, six rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: The Suns went with a Mirza and Markieff Morris frontcourt for a big chunk of this game. Teletovic is earning more playing time, but he probably won't be getting 20 minutes when the Suns play a close game. He's a 16-team guy right now with upside. Nov 23, 10:34 pm
  • Cody Zeller scores 12 points
    Cody Zeller scored 12 points in 28 minutes against the Kings on Monday with six rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: He played center in overtime over Al Jefferson. There is no word of an injury with Jefferson and maybe coach Steve Clifford just wanted to give Zeller a look with Big Al not looking like himself. Zeller is only a pickup in 16-team leagues. Nov 23, 9:12 pm
  • Andrew Nicholson has another nice game
    Andrew Nicholson scored a team-high 18 points against the Cavs on Monday with eight rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He played 24 minutes tonight after logging just seven minutes on Saturday. Nicholson did play 22 minutes two games ago and coach Scott Skiles is just crazy enough to start Nicholson. Still, he's only worth a speculative add in 16-team leagues and is kind of an underdog to start. Nov 23, 7:31 pm
  • Cody Zeller will play on Monday
    Cody Zeller (ankle) will play on Monday and come off the bench.

    Advice: That means there should be less minutes for a suddenly improving Frank Kaminsky. Zeller is likely looking at minutes close to 20 while Kaminsky is a much riskier play in DFS now. Nov 23, 2:32 pm
  • Dwight Powell plays season-low 13 minutes
    Dwight Powell played a season-low 13 minutes vs. the Thunder on Sunday, scoring 13 points with one rebound and two steals.

    Advice: It's no coincidence that Powell's minutes decreased in JaVale McGee's season debut, as he was reduced to being a strict backup PF behind Dirk Nowitzki. Owners should give Powell a few more games in the hopes that Rick Carlisle finds a way to get him 20+ minutes. Nov 22, 11:40 pm
  • Darrell Arthur scores 21 points w/ Faried out
    Darrell Arthur filled in at PF with Kenneth Faried (ankle) out on Sunday, notching a season-high 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting with eight rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Arthur has been struggling all year, shooting just over 30 percent from the field, but he found the range tonight and even knocked down a 3-pointer. It's a great sight for anyone who plugged him into DFS lineups, but most owners can ignore him since Faried might return as soon as Tuesday vs. the Clippers. Nov 22, 7:50 pm
  • Omer Asik's disappointing season continues
    Omer Asik's disappointing season continued with two points, four rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes vs. the Suns.

    Advice: He is a combined 1-of-6 from the field all season, has seven DNPs, and has played 20+ minutes just twice. Leave him on the wire. Nov 22, 6:01 pm
  • Andrea Bargnani scores 12 points vs. Nets
    Andrea Bargnani came off the bench to score 12 points in 21 minutes vs. the Celtics on Sunday, hitting 6-of-9 shots with three rebounds and one block.

    Advice: It was Bargnani's first double-digit performance since opening night -- in between he averaged 4.4 points per game. We might not see him score 12+ points again until 2016. Nov 22, 5:40 pm
  • Darrell Arthur starts w/ Faried out Sunday
    Darrell Arthur will start Sunday's game with Kenneth Faried (ankle) unavailable.

    Advice: Arthur has struggled all season, averaging 3.8 points on 30.8 percent shooting off the bench, and he's best left untouched with Faried day-to-day. Arthur will likely start alongside Nikola Jokic, who recently bumped J.J. Hickson to the Nuggets' bench. Nov 22, 4:28 pm
  • Teletovic says he's getting his groove back
    Following Friday's 15-point game against the Nuggets, Mirza Teletovic told reporters that he feels he's "getting back in the basketball groove."

    Advice: "It’s just like getting the rhythm of something different. You can’t practice that," said Teletovic. "You’ve got to play to get in game shape. The last three or four games really helped me out and gave me my confidence and I’m getting back in the basketball groove." Teletovic helped the Suns overcome a 28-point deficit on Friday, and he's been playing well lately averaging 10.8 points, 5.3 boards and 2.8 three-pointers over his past four games. He's worth a look in deep leagues for those seeking a 3-point specialist. Nov 22, 12:23 pm
  • Cody Zeller (ankle) questionable for Monday
    Cody Zeller (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Zeller was able to go through practice on Sunday, so it's possible that he will be a game-time decision. Frank Kaminsky has been playing well for the Hornets off the bench, and he could see some nice playing time if Zeller sits again. To be clear, Zeller is only worth owning in very deep leagues.

  • Mirza Teletovic gets late minutes
    Mirza Teletovic scored 15 points with five rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday.

    Advice: The Suns destroyed the Nuggets from deep and Mirza was responsible for some of the damage with 9.4 minutes in the fourth quarter. Coach Jeff Hornacek was probably using him more in a matchup than anything else, so he's not a strong pickup with Markieff Morris back. Nov 20, 11:55 pm
  • Omer Asik plays 12 minutes in start
    Omer Asik didn't log any attempts from the field in a start on Friday, scoring one point at the line with seven rebounds in 12 minutes.

    Advice: There's no reason to play him more than this. Asik tends to make Anthony Davis worse and he's not the same defender he was three years ago either. Nov 20, 9:45 pm
