    • Heat re-up Henry Walker to second 10-day
      The Heat have signed Henry Walker to a second 10-day deal.

      Advice: Henry "Bill" Walker will remain with the Heat for at least the next 10 days and it would be a surprise if he doesn't stick of the rest of the season. Walker has averaged 9.4 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 2.2 treys over his last five games and is worth a look for fantasy owners in need of help in the three-pointer category. Rotoworld.com

    • Nick Young questionable for Tuesday
      Nick Young (knee) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Hornets.

      Advice: Young didn't participate in Tuesday's shootaround and Lakers' head coach Byron Scott said he'll see how Swaggy P feels later in the day before making a final decision. While Young doesn't belong on any standard league fantasy rosters, his eventual return will cut into the fantasy value of Wayne Ellington, Jeremy Lin, and Wes Johnson. Rotoworld.com

    • Russell Westbrook likely to return Wednesday
      Russell Westbrook (face) is likely to return to action as soon as Wednesday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

      Advice: This isn't set in stone just yet, but Westbrook is expected to play with a protective mask on Wednesday barring an unforeseen setback. We'll update his status after Wednesday's shootaround, but Westbrook's owners can feel free to slot him back into their lineups while D.J. Augustin will return to the bench. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyrie Irving questionable for Tues vs Celtics
      Kyrie Irving (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game agains the Celtics.

      Advice: Cavs' head coach David Blatt had previously said that Irving would return to action against the Celtics on Tuesday, so there's a good chance his questionable status turns to probable later in the day. We'll pass along updates as soon as they're available, but Matthew Dellavedova will return to a bench role if Irving does indeed play on Tuesday night. Rotoworld.com

    • Scott happy with Jeremy Lin's recent play
      Lakers head coach Byron Scott said he's happy with the way that Jeremy Lin has been playing recently.

      Advice: "I am really happy with the way he’s starting to show that consistent effort for every single night," Scott said of Lin after Sunday's loss to the Thunder. "He’s playing the way I think he’s capable of playing." While Lin has had an inconsistent season, he's stepped up his play as of late and is averaging 17.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.2 steals in 27.8 minutes over his last five games. As long as he can continue to his pace, he's worth owning in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • P.J. Hairston benched due to absence
      P.J. Hairston was inactive during Sunday's game due to a missed weight-training session.

      Advice: According to two sources, Hairston missed a weight-training obligation and was subsequently put on the inactive list for Sunday's game. Hairston was also made inactive for a game in December after an unexcused absence from practice, so this isn't his first transgression of his rookie season. The rookie has only suited up for one of the Hornets' last 10 games, so he can be left on the wire in all but the deepest fantasy leagues at this point. Rotoworld.com

    • Tony Parker struggling to find old form
      Tony Parker said he's frustrated with his recent play and is trying to find his old form.

      Advice: The 33-year-old has struggled to find consistency this season and is only averaging 6.8 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 4.0 assists over his last five games. "I have not been the same since I came back, and it's still bothering me," Parker said. "Everybody knows. I am not going to use that as an excuse. I am just going to work it out until it gets better." While Parker's recent stats aren't worthy of standard fantasy league ownership, he's a starting point guard in the NBA and is worth holding onto for his upside. Rotoworld.com

    • Andre Miller wants to stay in Sacramento
      Andre Miller said he's comfortable in Sacramento and would like to play one more season there.

      Advice: "I just know that I still got something left. So for me, being close to home, just having I guess what you would call it - comfortable with this city - and just a transition at this point in my career it's best that I just stay where I'm at," Miller said. "I didn't want to leave Washington, it happened, and I don't want to leave here." The 38-year-old has averaged 7.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 5.6 assists over his last five games and is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues as long as he's seeing more than 20 minutes per game.

    • Rondo gets aggressive with 19 points in win
      Rajon Rondo was a bit more aggressive in the Mavs' 102-93 win over the Pelicans on Monday, scoring 19 points on 9-of-15 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes.

      Advice: Rondo did not get a steal and the assist numbers are down, but anything attached to the word 'aggression' should be viewed as a good thing. If he was dropped in an 8-cat league now is probably the time to take a chance on him, since the run-in with Rick Carlisle could produce a turnaround, if that's indeed in the cards. Rotoworld.com

    • Eric Gordon posts 18-5-4 line with four treys
      Eric Gordon's surprising surge continued in Monday's loss to the Mavs as he scored 18 points on 4-of-11 shooting (including four treys) with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.

      Advice: The production isn't surprising as he's been doing this for a while now, posting a top 50-80 month (8/9 cat) with no end in sight. The fact that he has been consistent and healthy is the good part, and it's nice to see him carry some of the weight from that ugly contract the Pelicans signed him to. Tyreke Evans added 17 points, three boards, seven assists, one steal and one three in the loss. Rotoworld.com

    • Hot Ish: Smith has a good game vs. Raps
      Ish Smith scored 19 points with five rebounds, nine assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Raptors on Monday.

      Advice: Coach Brett Brown already said that he likes Smith as a backup point guard, so he's not going to leapfrog Isaiah Canaan for the starting gig. That doesn't necessarily mean he won't outproduce him. In his last two games, he's averaged 15.0 points, 4.5 boards, 7.0 boards and 1.0 treys. He is worth a look in 16-team leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Cole scores 19 points off the bench
      Norris Cole scored 19 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 8-of-12 shots (including two threes) with one rebound, three assists and one block in 36 minutes.

      Advice: Cole is getting some extra looks with Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson out, and also not working in his long-term favor is that his standard-league game is a mess. He doesn't do much besides score and hit a few threes with a few assists, but he might be worth a look in your deeper points league. Rotoworld.com

      Ricky Rubio nabbed his fourth career triple-double in the Wolves' 110-105 loss to the Clippers on Monday, scoring 18 points on 5-of-11 shooting with 12 rebounds, 11 assists and one steal.

      Advice: Rubio hit 1-of-4 treys and 7-of-9 free throws and he has returned top 20-40 value over the past month (8/9 cat). Rotoworld.com

    • Concentrated Revenge: Dragic burns Suns
      Goran Dragic fought through a back injury and only needed nine shots from the field and less than 15 minutes to score 21 points against the Suns during a 115-98 win on Monday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: Dragic said he would have sat out against any other team, so chalk this one up to the old revenge game narrative. He was fouled hard and needed to go to the locker room tonight, so he might not be healthy for Wednesday against the Lakers. As for his performance tonight, he became just the second player in the past decade to score 21 points in less than 15 minutes (Kyle Lowry). He should have plenty of big lines on the way, if his back allows him to play. Rotoworld.com

    • Neal goes for 19 and nine with Kev-Mart out
      Gary Neal started for Kevin Martin (illness) on Monday, scoring 19 points on 6-of-17 shooting (including two threes) with a career-high nine rebounds, four assists and one steal in 41 minutes.

      Advice: If Martin misses another game it wouldn't be surprising to see Neal step right back into Martin's uber-productive role. He won't be this good every night, but he's worth watching closely given Martin's injury risk. Rotoworld.com

    • CP3 drops 26 and 14 on the Wolves in win
      Chris Paul scored 26 points on 12-of-20 shooting with four rebounds, 14 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in Monday's win over the Wolves.

      Advice: Paul has fallen into the category of used toy this season and is getting practically no MVP buzz despite another excellent season. In fantasy terms, he's still a top-half of the first round guy whenever he has stepped on the floor. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 8:49 pm
    • Deron Williams keeps rolling with 22-4-4 line
      Deron Williams scored 22 points on 8-of-19 shooting (including four threes) with four rebounds, four assists and one steal in the Nets' 110-108 win over the Warriors on Monday.

      Advice: The All Star break probably gave him a chance to rest his chronically injured ankles and owners just have to ride Williams until the wheels fall off. If your trade deadline hasn't passed, it's also a good time to sell-high. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight plays 40 minutes
      Brandon Knight played 40 minutes against the Heat on Monday with 13 points, one rebound, seven assists, one steal, one block, two 3-pointers and five turnovers.

      Advice: His defense was awful tonight and maybe it has something to do with his hip injury. Knight was actually one of the tougher matchups for a point guard in Milwaukee, but it might have been a product of his team helping. Additionally, Knight said he "can't explain" why the Bucks traded him before the game today. He should get better and buying low makes sense. Rotoworld.com

    • P.J. Tucker goes off for 20 points, 14 boards
      P.J. Tucker scored 20 points with 14 boards, three assists and one 3-pointer against the Heat on Monday.

      Advice: He crashed the boards all night and played a team-high 41 minutes tonight. Following the game, coach Jeff Hornacek said after the game that his team is "soft" and the Suns "look like a high school team." Tucker is not soft at all and those quotes suggest he is a lock for minutes in the upper 30s. He should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Greivis Vasquez scored 12 points on 5-of-8 from the field with one rebound, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Monday.

      Advice: That's pretty good efficiency, but the usage wasn't there with DeMar DeRozan being a one-man band. Vasquez has been solid so far in his starts, putting up a 14-point, six-dime line on Saturday. He should be worth starting in standard leagues while Kyle Lowry (finger) is out. Rotoworld.com

      Andre Iguodala scored 12 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 5-of-8 shots (including two threes) with four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 30 minutes.

      Advice: Iguodala's season-long numbers are on the wrong side of the ledger in 12-team leagues, but he has been a mid-round value over the last month. During that span he has averaged 10.1 points, 1.3 treys, 4.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.8 combined steals and blocks in 28.7 mpg. Rotoworld.com

    • Gary Neal to start for Martin
      Gary Neal will start for Kevin Martin (illness) on Monday against the Clippers.

      Advice: He is coming off a nice 16-point game on Saturday and should get minutes. Still, Neal is a very risky player to use tonight. We might also see Zach LaVine play some shooting guard, which hasn't happened in the second half yet. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:56 pm
    • Kevin Martin, Nikola Pekovic out Monday
      Kevin Martin (illness) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Monday.

      Advice: The Wolves will start Gorgui Dieng and Gary Neal. Coach Flip Saunders said that the flus is going around and their assistant coach won't be at the arena. Martin still isn't a must-start player now that he has one game on the sidelines this week. Neal is also a risky play. We should get a lot of Andrew Wiggins. Rotoworld.com

    • Goran Dragic will start on Monday night
      Goran Dragic (back) is going to start against the Suns on Monday.

      Advice: If you're into revenge games, this might be your Super Bowl. Dragic should get minutes in the mid 30s tonight and is a must-start in standard leagues. He and Dwyane Wade haven't played too well together, but that's to be expected for two ball-dominant guys. Start the Dragon. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight to start against the Heat
      Brandon Knight (hip) will start against the Heat on Monday.

      Advice: He is going to wear a pad on his hip to help protect the hip pointer injury suffered on Saturday. Knight hasn't quite hit his stride with his new team, but he's getting a lot of shots and even played 48 minutes in an overtime game against OKC last week. He's a must start player while this news doesn't necessarily hurt Eric Bledsoe because he's played well next to Knight. Gerald Green should be benched or even cut. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:10 pm
    • Goran Dragic (back) is a game-time call
      Goran Dragic is a game-time decision against the Suns on Monday.

      Advice: One would think he would at least try to play against a team with a front office he doesn't trust. Dragic has played well with the Heat, averaging 13.8 points, 3.0 boards, 5.4 dimes, 1.4 steals and 0.6 treys, so he's a must-start player if active, obviously. If he's out, we should get a lot of Shabazz Napier and Mario Chalmers running the point, but it'll be the Dwyane Wade Show, as well. Rotoworld.com

      Kevin Martin (illness) is questionable to play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

      The Heat are expected to sign Henry Walker ot a second 10-day contract, sources told Real GM.

      Advice: No surprise here. Bill.I.Am has made an impression during his short stint in Miami, and he'll continue to get a ton of opportunity with Chris Bosh out for the season and the Heat paper-thin behind Hassan Whiteside in the frontcourt. Rotoworld.com

    • Goran Dragic (back) questionable for Monday
      Goran Dragic (back) is still being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Suns.

      Advice: Dragic really wants to play, but he's clearly hurting even though he did report some improvement. He did not participate in shootaround, an indication that The Dragon could be headed for a dreaded game-time call. If he's unable to suit up, Mario Chalmers would start and see all of the minutes he can handle with Shabazz Napier as his backup. Rotoworld.com

    • Elijah Millsap draws praise from Quin Snyder
      Coach Quin Snyder recently heaped praise all over rookie Elijah Millsap.

      Advice: "There’s things that Elijah does that makes us a better team," Snyder said. "I think he shoots the ball maybe better than any of us thought when he first got here, just his ability to hit a spot-up shot." Snyder added that Millsap has to learn how to better balance plays for himself vs. plays for his teammates, but he's clearly established himself as a key part of Snyder's rotation and is averaging over 25 minutes per game since the All-Star break concluded.

"It’s really good that he’s here, that he’s with us," Quin Snyder said. "He wants to be with us. He’s in the film sessions."

      Advice: "For myself, being a leader, directing guys, it's just putting them in the right positions and learning on the go and learning on the fly," Knight said. "If I talk myself through it, it looks like I'm leading but I'm kind of helping myself." Hornacek added that Knight is "willing to talk in practice," saying he's already been communicating with teammates about what needs improvement. By comparison, Eric Bledsoe plans to lead by example, "I keep on hearing everybody telling me I need to talk more...I'm pretty much going to go out there and do." Rotoworld.com

    • Andre Iguodala returns w/ efficient line Sun
      Andre Iguodala returned to action with six points, nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes during Sunday's win in Boston.

      Advice: He made 3-of-4 shots and didn't commit any turnovers, picking up in March where he left off in February when he averaged 10.3 points on 51.3 percent shooting, 1.4 triples, 4.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.5 blocks. Poor free throw shooting dents Iguodala's value but he's still worth deploying in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Eric Gordon scores 18 points in NOP victory
      Eric Gordon scored 18 points vs. the Nuggets on Sunday, adding three 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He's now made a 3-pointer in 25 consecutive games which is huge for a Pelicans team that ranks in the bottom-10 for 3-pointers made. With Ryan Anderson (knee) out of commission, it's safe to say Gordon will have a neon-green light to shoot from downtown in the coming weeks. Rotoworld.com

    • Goran Dragic (back) questionable for Monday
      According to head coach Erik Spoelstra, Goran Dragic is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Suns after he dealt with back spasms during Saturday's game vs. the Hawks.

      Advice: "He got hit in the back and that's why he was in the locker room," Spoelstra said. "He probably shouldn't have played in the second half. He just played through it. I kept on asking him if he was OK and he said he was... He gutted it out." Dragic will likely do everything in his power to be ready in time to face his former team, and we should be able to provide another update after the Heat's shootaround on Monday morning. If Dragic can't play, Mario Chalmers will be the primary beneficiary, while Shabazz Napier would likely see an uptick in minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeremy Lin stays hot, scores 20 in loss Sun.
      Jeremy Lin continued his impressive play in a loss to the Thunder on Sunday, scoring 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting with eight assists, six boards, three steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

      Advice: Distant memories of Linsanity are slowly starting to surface, as Lin has been a new man since the All-Star break, averaging 17.0 points, 5.0 assists, 2.8 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.8 3-pointers in 27.8 minutes per game. While it is highly unlikely that he takes over as the starting PG with rookie Jordan Clarkson playing well, Lin has been playing a lot of minutes at shooting guard which is huge for his value moving forward. Don't look now, but Lin is worth a flier in most leagues to see if he can keep up his torrid pace. Rotoworld.com

    • Ish Smith starts 2nd half over Isaiah Canaan
      Ish Smith took over at PG to start the second half vs. Indiana on Sunday, posting 11 points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds and five assists in the Sixers' loss.

      Advice: Smith is a career 38.6 percent shooter and fantasy owners should be extremely wary of his 47.4 percent free throw shooting this season. He's a decent speculative add for deep-league owners seeking a point guard, but his starting job isn't guaranteed and we wouldn't cut anyone of value to get him. Rotoworld.com

    • Andre Miller double-doubles in loss Sunday
      Andre Miller logged his first double-double of the season in a 110-99 loss to the Blazers on Sunday, scoring 12 points with 10 assists, two boards and two steals in 26 minutes.

      Advice: Fellow point guard Ray McCallum had 12 points with five assists and two boards in 25 minutes, and it looks like head coach George Karl is going to stick with his plan of splitting their minutes. Darren Collison is likely done for the season because of his hip injury, so both Miller and McCallum are worth a look in deeper leagues. Just don't expect Miller to be this good on a regular basis considering he is a little ways past his prime. Rotoworld.com

    • Ish Smith starts 2nd half over Isaiah Canaan
      Ish Smith started the second half in place of Isaiah Canann on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

      Advice: Canaan has struggled with his conditioning and hasn't exactly looked comfortable running the point in Philly, but head coach Brett Brown has been known to shake things up occasionally. Smith was averaging 6.3 points, 5.3 assists and 1.3 steals in his previous three performances with the 76ers, but owners in most leagues should use a wait-and-see approach here. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Paul puts up huge double-double in win
      Chris Paul was incredible during Sunday's win over the Bulls, scoring 28 points on 12-of-19 shooting, with 12 assists, five rebounds, one block and just one turnover through 38 minutes of action.

      Advice: Efficiency is why Paul is such an elite option in fantasy leagues, and he was particularly amazing during the month of February with averages of 19.1 points, 11.5 assists, 1.6 steals, and just 2.6 turnovers per game on 47.1 percent shooting from the field. Over the past month Paul has emerged as the league leader in assists per game, but his value will take a minor hit when Blake Griffin (elbow) returns to action. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyrie Irving (shoulder) to return on Tuesday
      Cavs' head coach David Blatt said that Kyrie Irving (shoulder) will return to action on Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

      Advice: Irving won't be available for Sunday's game vs. the Rockets, giving Matthew Dellavedova one more game with the starting unit. Dellavedova managed to put up 14 inefficient points during Friday's loss to the Pacers, but those numbers came with both LeBron James and Irving out of the lineup. With James set to return on Sunday, Dellavedova isn't going to be a great option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Rajon Rondo says thoughts over FA are same
      Rajon Rondo said that his thoughts regarding his impending free agency haven't changed since his spat with head coach Rick Carlisle.

      Advice: Rondo is going to hold his cards close to his chest, but he hasn't had the smoothest transition since leaving Boston. He is averaging just 7.6 points, 4.6 assists, 2.8 boards and 3.6 turnovers over his last five games, and he is also shooting just 43 percent from the field and 33 percent from the charity stripe over that span. He still has some value in points leagues, but he is a huge liability in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Tony Parker scored six points with two assists on 3-of-13 from the field against the Suns on Saturday.

      Advice: Since an impressive start to his second half in a loss to the Clippers, Parker has been awful. In his last five, he averaged 6.8 points, 4.0 dimes and 0.6 steals on 26.0 percent from the field. Luckily for Parker and the Spurs, they're off until Wednesday, so maybe that will help. He's still worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Gerald Green starts the second half
      Gerald Green started the second half for the injured Brandon Knight, finishing with four points and one rebound in 14 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

      Advice: He seems to be firmly in the doghouse and has played just 15.5 minutes per game since the break (including the DNP-CD). The Suns appear like they're not going to bring Green back next season and will get a look at their young guys, so he's not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Deron Williams scores 25 points in win
      Deron Williams turned Rajon Rondo into a turnstile during a 104-94 win on Saturday with 25 points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

      Advice: Jarrett Jack was no slouch either with 14 points and four dimes tonight. Williams has come out strong in the second half, averaging 15.6 points, 4.2 boards, 7.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.8 treys. If you were patient with Deron last month, it's starting to pay off. Rotoworld.com

    • Rajon Rondo scores eight in return
      Rajon Rondo scored eight points in his return to the lineup on Saturday against the Nets, adding seven rebounds, six assists and four turnovers in 28 minutes.

      Advice: The best part of all this for his fantasy owners is that he didn't go to the free throw line. Rondo looked awful on defense again tonight and ranked dead last on his team for plus-minus at minus-22. He's not a must-own player in standard leagues, but he should be viewed as a mid-to-late-round guy in points leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight out for game with hip injury
      Brandon Knight suffered a hip injury against the Spurs and will not return, finishing with just one point and two assists in 17 minutes.

      Advice: He missed all six of his attempts from the field and clearly wasn't himself tonight. There is no word on the severity of the injury, but we should know more soon. Gerald Green started the second half in place of Knight, and he will have an excellent shot to play big minutes if Knight misses any additional time. Rotoworld.com

    • Greivis Vasquez scores 14 in a start
      Greivis Vasquez scored 14 points in a start against the Knicks on Saturday with three rebounds, six assists and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

      Advice: There's a chance that Kyle Lowry needs to rest more, which makes sense because he's looked awful for over one month. Vasquez has a lot of potential as the starting point guard and even led the NBA in total dimes back in 2012-13. He's worth a look if you want some short-term help at point guard and is capable of putting up this type of line most nights. Rotoworld.com

    • Henry Walker launches 11 treys
      Henry Walker made his first start of the season on Saturday with 10 points, two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers.

      Advice: He attempted 11 treys from behind the arc and coach Erik Spoelstra clearly wants to have him out there for spacing. Walker is actually on the radar in standard leagues and owners in deep leagues should give him a look, but he's still on a 10-day after all. Rotoworld.com

    • Goran Dragic struggles against the Hawks
      Goran Dragic went scoreless in the first half against the Hawks on Saturday, finishing with six points, three rebounds, six assists, two steals and three turnovers.

      Advice: It's been a bumpy ride for Dragic, but his averages still look fine. In his five games with the Heat, he averaged 13.8 points, 3.0 boards, 5.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.6 treys on 49.1 percent from the field. He should get even better and have a chance to be a third- or fourth-round guy. Rotoworld.com

    • Henry Walker to start, Udonis Haslem to bench
      Henry Walker will start at power forward against the Hawks with Udonis Haslem coming off the bench.

    • Greivis Vasquez starting for Kyle Lowry
      Greivis Vasquez will start against the Knicks on Saturday.

      Advice: The last time Kyle Lowry missed a game (Apr. 5, 2014), Greivis Vasquez had 26 points, four boards, four dimes, one steal and six treys in 37 minutes. He should get a huge increase in playing time in a favorable matchup. If you're looking to stream a point guard tonight, look no further. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyrie Irving (left shoulder) out for Sunday
      Kyrie Irving (shoulder) will not play against the Rockets on Sunday.

      Advice: It'll be his second game out of the lineup for the Cavs and he should be considered questionable for Tuesday against the Celtics. Matthew Dellavedova put up a fluky 14-point, 10-board game on Friday, but that was also without LeBron James. Outside of maybe giving J.R. Smith, Kevin Love and LeBron a little bump in usage rate, there's not much impact from Kyrie missing time. Iman Shumpert may play more for owners in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Russell Westbrook could play in playoff game
      Russell Westbrook (face) won't miss much time due to his facial surgery on Saturday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

      Advice: "If he had a playoff game [on Sunday], he could play," the report added. As mentioned 30 minutes ago, Westbrook is going to be re-evaluated later this week due to surgery on the zygomatic arch on his right cheek, so he sounds like he could actually play on Wednesday against the 76ers. Still, fantasy owners will want to grab D.J. Augustin in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 2:06 pm
    • Russell Westbrook has facial surgery, out Sun
      Russell Westbrook (face) underwent a successful procedure to address a fracture to the zygomatic arch and will be re-evaluated this week.

      Advice: He is not going to play on Sunday, but he hasn't officially been ruled out for Wednesday against the 76ers. Westbrook is likely going to have to play with a mask upon his return and we still really have no idea how much time he's going to miss. In the meantime, it makes sense to grab D.J. Augustin in all standard leagues until Westy is back. Westbrook owners have to just sit tight and hope he can continue his triple-double streak right after being re-evaluated. To be clear, this doesn't sound like bad news. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:32 pm
    • Nick Young (knee) out again on Sunday
      Nick Young (knee) will not play against the Thunder on Sunday.

      Advice: He is still dealing with swelling in his knee and the fact that the Lakers ruled him out a day before the game suggests he could miss Tuesday against the Hornets. Wayne Ellngton had a great second half on Friday while Jeremy Lin is finally starting to put some good games together, averaging 16.3 points, 2.0 boards, 4.3 assists and 0.8 treys in his last four. Young can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Kyrie Irving (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Rockets.

      Advice: An MRI taken on his shoulder reportedly came back clean, and he is said to be dealing with a minor strain. We will know more on his status after shootaround Sunday morning, so his owners will want to be on alert for an update. If Kyrie sits, Iman Shumpert and Matthew Dellavedova will see increased minutes in the backcourt. Rotoworld.com

    • Rajon Rondo says spat with Carlisle is over
      Rajon Rondo made it clear that his spat with head coach Rick Carlisle is over and that he is ready to move on.

      Advice: "Definitely, he had some frustrations with me and vice-versa," Rondo said. "So communication is definitely key in this situation. We’ve had a couple talks since then, and we’re going to move forward." Rondo was suspended for Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks, but he is expected to start against the Nets on Saturday, sending J.J. Barea back to the bench. However, Rondo is averaging just 7.5 points, 4.3 assists and 1.8 rebounds in his last four games, so his owners would be advised to leave him on the bench until he turns things around. Rotoworld.com

    • Lin posts 14-5-6 line in win over Bucks
      Jeremy Lin scored 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes off the bench in the Lakers' 101-93 win over the Bucks on Friday.

      Advice: Lin has hovered around the bottom of the top-150 over the last month but has picked it up over the last week or so. Bryon Scott has said that he's thinking of starting Lin at some point, but that's not necessarily the driver of his value. He's worth a pickup though for the chance he can make a late-season run.

    • Parker gets back on track against the Kings
      Tony Parker scored 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting (1-of-2 from deep, 4-of-4 from the line) with five rebounds and four assists in Friday's win.

      Advice: Parker and Manu Ginobili (16 points, two threes, two boards, one block) played a little bit better than they have been, beating a Kings squad that didn't have DeMarcus Cousins but struggling to do so. Parker is worth a look if he has been dropped, but there's no guarantee he pays off big for owners in standard formats. Rotoworld.com

    • Gordon posts 20 pts, eight rebs, four 3PMs
      Eric Gordon scored 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting (including four threes) with one rebound and eight assists in the Pelicans' 104-102 win over the Heat on Friday.

      Advice: The Pelicans aren't falling out of contention in the playoff chase and Gordon is a big reason why. He's been a top 50-75 guy (8/9 cat) over the last month or so and that'll probably be the case until (if) Jrue Holiday returns. Tyreke Evans added 19 points, three boards, 11 assists, one trey and five turnovers in the win. Rotoworld.com

    • Cole goes hitless on 10 shot attempts
      Norris Cole missed all 10 of his field goal attempts on Friday, finishing with three points (3-of-4 FTs), two boards and four assists in 23 minutes.

      Advice: This could be his worst game for the rest of the season and he had been fairly hot coming in. Cole isn't a must-own player or even a strong add, but he could wiggle his way into a productive role before it's all said and done in New Orleans. Rotoworld.com

    • Dragic goes for 20 and five in loss
      Goran Dragic scored 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting with three rebounds, five assists and one steal in the Heat's loss to the Pelicans on Friday.

      Advice: Dragic has been a top-70 player so far in Miami and that's likely to rise as he gets comfortable and his role increases. Rotoworld.com

      Deron Williams started again at point guard on Friday as expected, scoring 15 points on 6-of-15 shooting (no threes) with five rebounds, three assists and three steals in 34 minutes.

      Advice: Williams outplayed Jarrett Jack (four points, 2-of-9 FGs, five assists, one steal, one block, 23 minutes) and that hasn't been the case for most of the season. The Nets want things to work out with Williams so they'll give him every chance to stay on track, but he'll have his work cut out for him staying ahead. Either way, he should be owned in all formats now that he avoided falling off the cliff, at least for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Paul scores 19 with 13 dimes
      Chris Paul scored 19 points against the Grizzlies on Friday with four rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, one turnover and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: The Grizzlies gave out flip-flops tonight and it wasn't a coincidence because their team/fans haven't been bashful about saying the Clippers flop a lot. As for Paul, his numbers in his last nine are amazing, averaging 20.0 points, 4.8 boards, 12.1 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 treys on 49.3 percent from the field. The Clippers are playing very well without Blake Griffin (elbow). Rotoworld.com

      Russell Westbrook suffered an injury to his face on Friday against the Blazers, posting a triple-double for the third consecutive game with 40 points, 13 rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and six turnovers on 14-of-32 from the field and 12-of-14 from the line.

      Advice: Believe it or not, it looked like Westbrook had a penny-sized dent on the side of his face. He did not speak to the media and it's also possible he is dealing with concussion-like symptoms due to Andre Roberson kneeing him in the head. If Westy needs to miss time, it would be a massive loss for the NBA and especially the Thunder. D.J. Augustin would start and become a must-own player while Dion Waiters would also have to score more. Rotoworld.com

    • Russell Westbrook is good to go vs. Blazers
      Russell Westbrook (ankle) is ready to go against the Blazers on Friday.

      Nick Young (knee) will not play against the Bucks on Friday.

      Advice: He was essentially ruled out on Thursday and he is likely going to miss games. Young is in the news most of the time for leading the league in shoekeepers and keeping his right arm tattoo-free strictly for buckets. He can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: It is scheduled rest with Iguodala sitting out in previous back-to-back sets. The last time he sat, Klay Thompson scored 52 points, but it should be Brandon Rush picking up most of the minutes for Iggy tonight. Harrison Barnes only gets a slight bump tonight. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyrie Irving (shoulder) questionable Sunday
      David Blatt said that Kyrie Irving's (shoulder) MRI came back clear enough that he may be able to suit up for Sunday's game vs. Houston.

      Advice: Irving is just dealing with a shoulder strain, so hopefully he'll be ready to go on Sunday after sitting out of Friday's game vs. the Pacers. Matthew Dellavedova will slide into the starting point guard spot for as long as Irving is out, but with averages of just 6.6 points, 4.9 assists, and 1.8 three-pointers with the starting unit, Dellavedova's value is limited to very deep leagues.

    • Lin to start over Clarkson at some point?
      Coach Bryon Scott said he is thinking of starting Jeremy Lin at some point.

      Advice: The change is not going to happen tonight with the Lakers sticking with the same starting five. Lin may start over Jordan Clarkson or the team could go with a two-PG lineup, as well. Clarkson has played next to Lin for 23.3 percent of his minutes this season, so this isn't too bold and there won't be many fantasy implications here outside of Wayne Ellington being less appealing. Rotoworld.com

    • Scott still doesn't expect Nick Young to play
      Coach Byron Scott said he does not expect Nick Young (knee) to play against the Bucks on Friday.

    • Rajon Rondo goes through full practice Friday
      Rajon Rondo went through a full practice on Friday, and he will return to the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Nets.

      Advice: Rondo has really struggled with the move to Dallas. He's averaging just 9.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.3 steals, and 2.9 turnovers on 40.8 percent shooting since joining the Mavs. He's no longer putting up elite assist totals, which was really his only source of value, and with poor percentages and limited contributions in the major statistical categories, Rondo can be viewed as a drop-candidate in standard leagues.

      Gerald Green played 16 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with two points, one assist and one steal.

      Advice: He was the No. 2 guy off the bench and he only made 1-of-4 from the field. Green was more focused on defense tonight, but he still has a long way to go to getting back in the good graces of his coach. If you want to add someone like Kelly Olynyk for Green, go for it. Rotoworld.com

    • Not Untucked: P.J. Tucker has solid game
      P.J Tucker picked up big minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with 12 points, four rebounds, two assists, one block and one turnover.

      Advice: He played 35 minutes and coach Jeff Hornacek put him in the unenviable position of guarding Russ Westbrook down the stretch. Tucker is racking up stats right now and he's getting consistent minutes, so he should be viewed as a must-own player in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight scores 15 points in win
      Brandon Knight played 48 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with 15 points, five rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: While he did get a front-row seat of the Russ Westbrook Show, Knight looked good. He had a lot of ISO plays and he ran the offense a ton tonight, especially in transition. It's pretty clear coach Jeff Hornacek is going to stagger Knight's minutes with Eric Bledsoe, which should elevate his usage rate. Considering how many treys he's taking, his fantasy value shouldn't fall off too much. He should be viewed as a mid-round guy. Rotoworld.com

      Russell Westbrook notched his second straight triple-double in Thursday's 117-113 overtime loss to the Suns, finishing with 39 points, 14 boards, 11 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes, though he did suffer a minor ankle tweak in the closing moments of the game.

      Advice: That's good for a 48.3 usage rate. He was seen walking around the locker room with no visible limp after the game, so it doesn't look like he is in any danger of missing any action. Westbrook was able to find a tremendous amount of defensive rebounds and he carried the OKC offense tonight, especially in transition. He and teammate Serge Ibaka were No. 1 and 2 in fantasy value since the break. In addition to that, Westbrook is on pace with Oscar Robertson to become the second player in NBA history to average 30 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds in a month. If you're under 40 years old, you've never seen this before. Rotoworld.com

The fact that he is not going to travel with the team should all but rule him out for Friday, but crazier things have happened.

      Advice: We will keep him on the injury report unless we get a positive report after shootaround on Friday, but his owners should have backup plan ready just in case. Irving was able to play through the pain against the Warriors and managed to score 24 points, but there's no telling how his shoulder will respond once the adrenaline from the thrilling matchup with Stephen Curry wears off.

      Rajon Rondo is unlikely to return to the Mavericks after this season, according to Tim McMahon of ESPN Dallas.

      Advice: While Tyson Chandler expects Rondo's recent run-in with head coach Rick Carlisle to bring the team closer, McMahon thinks the altercation and ensuing one-game suspension will lead the free-agent-to-be to bolt Dallas after the season. A winning season could cure everything here, but Rondo has spoken about his desire to be wooed during the free agency period so this latest incident likely won't help the Mavericks' chances to retain the mercurial point guard.

    • Rajon Rondo will start vs Nets on Saturday
      Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said Rajon Rondo will start against the Nets on Saturday after serving a one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team.

      Advice: An on-court verbal exchange and ensuing post-game shouting match in the locker room led to a one-game suspension for Rondo, but Carlisle is ready to move forward. "It’s one game, we’ll be off [Thursday]," Carlisle said. "He’ll practice Friday, and he’ll be back in the starting lineup on Saturday. The events of last night are in the past. And we’ve got to move forward." It sounds like it's safe for fantasy owners to plug Rondo back into their lineups for Saturday's game against the Nets, while J.J. Barea and Devin Harris will return to bench roles. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Miller turns 39 in March, but doesn't seem ready to retire just yet. With Darren Collison (hip) possibly out for the rest of the season and Ray McCallum struggling, Miller could be in line for more minutes in Sacramento this season. Miller's upside is limited and the Kings may end up deciding to give McCallum more time to learn, but the 39-year-old is worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: "If he’s not the Tony Parker of past years, we’re not going anywhere," Gregg Popovich said on Tuesday.

      Andre Miller played 26 minutes off the bench and had four points, six rebounds and seven assists in the Kings win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

      Advice: Ray McCallum hasn't been getting it done and it sounds like Darren Collison's season might be over due to his hip injury, so Miller is next in line. However, given his age and the Kings being out of the playoffs, they might be better off just letting McCallum continue to learn how to be an NBA point guard.

    • Brandon Knight scores team-high 19
      Brandon Knight scored a team-high 19 points against the Nuggets during a 110-96 win on Wednesday with three rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He's established a very nice rapport with Eric Bledsoe. In fact, Knight has passed the ball to Bledsoe more than any other player and he's also received more passes from him than anyone else, too. He's taken 19 attempts from deep in his last two games, which is a good thing based on his 40.4 percent from that range this season. Knight's value won't drop too much in standard leagues thanks to the added output in treys. Rotoworld.com

    • P.J. Tucker putting up big numbers
      P.J. Tucker's hot streak continued on Wednesday with 12 points, eight rebounds, one assist, one block and five steals in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He has been logging a lot of playing time at power forward now and his minutes are among the safest on the team. In his last five, Tucker averaged 14.6 points, 8.4 boards, 1.0 assists, 2.2 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.5 treys on 47.3 percent from the field and 81.3 percent from the line. He's worth owning in standard leagues right now. Rotoworld.com

    • Gerald Green finally gets run, scores 15
      Gerald Green played 21 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday with 15 points, four rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He was a DNP-CD on Monday because coach Jeff Hornacek called his number and Green had stepped away to go to the bathroom. He really only needs around 25 minutes per game to put up value in standard leagues, so he should be on your radar. However, it's going to be tough to add him until Hornacek rolls with a consistent rotation on the wing behind Brandon Knight and P.J. Tucker. Rotoworld.com

    • Eric Gordon's slump continues Wednesday
      Eric Gordon hit just 2-of-11 shots (both 3-pointers) for eight points, six rebounds, four assists and a steal on Wednesday.

      Advice: He's really struggling with his shot right now, hitting just 19-of-61 shots over his last five games, good for just 31 percent. He's averaging 12.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 3.2 3-pointers over that stretch, so if his shot ever comes back, he could start putting up some really nice numbers.

    • Deron Williams quiet in Jarrett Jack's return
      Deron Williams started again on Wednesday and had 10 points and six assists in 34 minutes on 4-of-14 shooting.

      Advice: Jarrett Jack was back from his hamstring injury, but came off the bench and had 15 points in 28 minutes. It remains to be seen if Jack starts over Williams in the next one, but it would make more sense (at least to us) to leave Williams alone and start Jack at shooting guard. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Gary Neal plays 28 minutes Wednesday
      Gary Neal came off the bench for 28 minutes on Wednesday and had seven points, four rebounds, two assists and a 3-pointer on 2-of-5 shooting.

      Advice: He was iffy coming in due to an ankle injury, but obviously, Flip Saunders felt like it was no big deal, even though Neal was actually doubtful at one point because of it. He didn't do much with the minutes, but he should at least be watched closely in case this wasn't a fluke. Rotoworld.com

    • Ricky Rubio posts typical Rubio line in win
      Ricky Rubio hit just 2-of-9 shots for six points, seven rebounds, eight assists and four steals.

      Advice: This line is precisely what Rubio does, and is basically what owners should expect to get when they plug him into a lineup. Solid assists and steals, serviceable rebounds, and poor shooting and scoring. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Martin still hot, scores 28 in win
      Kevin Martin kept it rolling on Wednesday, hitting 10-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 28 points and two steals in an easy win over the Wizards.

      Advice: He's on fire and has scored 21 or more points in six straight games. If you stuck with him through the wrist debacle, he's paying off down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

      Henry Walker came off the bench and played 33 minutes in Wednesday's overtime win, but hit just 3-of-13 shots and 2-of-11 3-pointers for 10 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals.

      Advice: The minutes were there, but his shot wasn't. If the Heat are going to keep giving him minutes, and it looks like they plan to, he's probably worth a flier in deep leagues. He played 21 minutes and scored 11 in his Heat debut on Monday. Rotoworld.com

    • Rondo, Carlisle had 2nd argument after game
      Rajon Rondo and coach Rick Carlisle had another "emotionally charged dispute in the locker room after the game," according to ESPN.com's Tim MacMahon.

      Advice: Rondo is not going to play tonight because of it and these arguments may hurt his playing time going forward, though Carlisle said Rondo will start Saturday's game as usual. The Mavericks are not much better with Rondo on the floor and they probably won't miss him tonight. In fact, his Mavs teammates made only 47.9 percent from the field off passes from Rondo. Before Rondo arrived, the Mavs were making 49.1 percent from the field off Monta Ellis passes. Rondo is not a must-own player in standard leagues. Meanwhile, J.J. Barea and Devin Harris will step up. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 2:58 pm
    • Mavs suspend Rajon Rondo for one game
      Rajon Rondo has been suspended for Wednesday's game against the Hawks due to conduct detrimental to the team.

      Advice: He got into an argument with Rick Carlisle on Tuesday and his coach benched him after that. Rondo has been awful this season and it'll be interesting to see how the Mavericks put their lineups together. The former Celtic has actually been below average as defender and the Mavericks have also fallen as an offense since he's joined them, so this suspension might help them tonight. With Rondo out, it'll be J.J. Barea likely to start with Devin Harris also getting more run. Expect to see Monta Ellis have a bigger responsibility as well. Rotoworld.com

    • Nick Young (knee) will not play vs. the Jazz
      Nick Young (knee) will not play vs. the Jazz on Wednesday.

      Advice: He is coming off a 19-point performance vs. the Celtics on Sunday, so it's a shame that he is going to have to sit this one out. The good news is that an MRI taken on his knee came back negative, but head coach Byron Scott said that Young was still dealing with some swelling. Consider Young day-to-day for now, and expect Wayne Ellington, Wes Johnson and Jeremy Lin to all see increased opportunities with Young on the shelf. Rotoworld.com

    • Rajon Rondo benched after argument w/ coach
      Rajon Rondo had a heated verbal exchange with coach Rick Carlisle early in the third quarter on Tuesday, after which Rondo never re-entered the game.

      Advice: "Emotional game and we had a difference of opinion," Carlisle said afterward. "Once it was over, it was over." Rondo appeared to ignore Carlisle's play call during an offensive possession, which led to a frustrated timeout during which Rondo and his coach openly yelled at one another in the huddle, and the fact that he didn't return to the game suggests it wasn't immediately "over" as Carlisle suggested. Rondo finished with four points and four assists in 18 minutes and we expect him to resume his typical role as a starter vs. Atlanta on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

    • Greivis Vasquez scores 14 pts on 5-of-6 FGs
      Greivis Vasquez made 5-of-6 shots including 3-of-3 triples to finish Tuesday's game with 14 points off the bench, his highest-scoring performance since Feb. 6.

      Advice: James Johnson (six points in 26 minutes) is locking down the starting SF job and Vasquez isn't an appealing fantasy option as long as Johnson, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry are all healthy. Toronto's offense has flagged lately but their real liability has been defense -- Raptors' opponents are shooting 45.6 percent from the field this season, the worst mark of any playoff-bound team other than the Heat.

    • OKC wins as Russell Westbrook triple-doubles
      The Thunder cruised past the Pacers on Tuesday behind Russell Westbrook's third double-double of the season, as he racked up 20 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in a mere 28 minutes of action.

      Advice: Westbrook has been outrageously good whenever Kevin Durant has been out of commission this year. With Durant on the bench, Westbrook's usage rate soars and he's posting a True Shooting percentage of 57.0 percent, compared to 50.2 percent with Durant on the court. The only bad news is that WB also picked up his league-leading 12th technical foul during tonight's game, putting him four away from a one-game suspension. Rotoworld.com

    • Popovich eager for Tony Parker to improve
      Head coach Gregg Popovich said that Tony Parker needs to break out of his funk if the Spurs have any hope to pursue another NBA title.

      Advice: "If he’s not the Tony Parker of past years," Popovich said, "we’re not going anywhere." Parker is averaging just 14.1 points per game this season, his fewest since his rookie year, but he denied that his previous hamstring issue was still causing him problems. Parker has scored a combined seven points over the last two games, and if he doesn't figure things out soon the Spurs could be in serious trouble. He's simply too talented to drop in most leagues, and his owners can only hope that he turns things around with fantasy playoffs right around the corner. Rotoworld.com

    • Gary Neal (ankle) doubtful for Wednesday
      Gary Neal (ankle) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. Washington.

      Advice: Neal only managed to get in the game for 11 minutes during his Timberwolves debut, so his absence from the lineup doesn't have any real fantasy implications. He's stuck in a backup role in Minnesota, and he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues as long as Kevin Martin is healthy. Rotoworld.com

      Nick Young (knee) did not participate during Tuesday's practice.

      Advice: An MRI taken on Young's knee came back negative, but with him sitting out of Tuesday's practice, he looks to be on the doubtful side of questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Utah. If he's unable to go, there will be more minutes for guys like Jeremy Lin, Wes Johnson, and Wayne Ellington. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Gerald Green a healthy scratch on Monday
      Gerald Green was a healthy scratch against the Celtics on Monday.

      Advice: Green was set to come off the bench against his former team on Monday, but ended up not seeing the court during the Suns' loss. While Green had played in all but one game this season, it looks like he's in danger to losing his spot in the Suns' rotation to Archie Goodwin and can be dropped in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • CP3 goes for 30 & 10; key TO late seals loss
      Chris Paul was spectacular pretty much all night on Monday, scoring 30 points, four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and two threes, but a late turnover sealed the Clippers' 90-87 loss to the Grizzlies.

      Advice: Paul is gaining a reputation for mistakes in big moments and that's a bit unfair, but he's still in his prime and he can totally redeem himself by going huge in the playoffs. He has dropped off a bit in the overall rankings with just top 5-7 value on a per-game basis in 9- and 8-cat leagues, respectively, but counting games played he's a top 3-4 asset. Rotoworld.com

    • Knight scores 20 points w/ four 3PMs in start
      Brandon Knight moved into the starting lineup in the Suns' 115-110 loss to the Celtics on Monday, scoring 20 points on 8-of-19 shooting (4-of-11 from deep) with one rebound and four assists in 34 minutes.

      Advice: Knight is going to produce more like a shooting guard than a point guard in Phoenix, and it's fair to wonder if he'll keep up with the gaudy rebounding totals. He did not have a steal or block or go to the free throw line at all, but altogether the increase in 3-point attempts will go a long way toward keeping his value from dipping too much. Rotoworld.com

    • Tucker double-doubles in loss to BOS
      P.J. Tucker double-doubled in Monday's loss, putting up 13 and 12 with two steals in 35 minutes.

      Advice: Tucker hit 4-of-10 shots (no threes) from the field and all five of his free throws, building off a solid 20-point outing from Saturday. He's hard to trust, but perhaps the changes in Phoenix will break in his favor and one way or another he's worth a hard look right now. Rotoworld.com

    • Deron Williams looks good in another start
      Deron Williams was effective against the Nuggets on Monday with 16 points, five rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and one turnover.

      Advice: Jarrett Jack missed his second consecutive game and it's led to consecutive double-doubles for Williams. It's been a while since he had one of those with his last double-double coming back on Dec. 16. Jack was ruled out this morning, so he's likely going to miss more time. Williams should be viewed as a must-start player until further notice. Rotoworld.com

      Norris Cole backed up a solid debut from Saturday with 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting, one rebound, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes off the bench on Monday.

      Advice: The Pelicans might be desperate enough for offense that Cole steps into the void right away and produces. Consider him a flier pick for 12-14 team leagues at this time. Rotoworld.com

    • Ricky Rubio plays 39 minutes
      Ricky Rubio played 39 minutes against the Rockets on Monday with 14 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and four steals.

      Advice: He made just 2-of-9 from the field and made all 10 from the line. Rubio has been flirting with triple-doubles in each of his last two games and he's obviously had his minutes restriction dropped. He won't shoot the ball well, but all the other stats should be there. Rotoworld.com

    • Ish Smith plays 24 minutes, scores seven
      Ish Smith made his 76ers debut on Monday, scoring seven points with three rebounds, seven assists, three steals and four turnovers in 24 minutes.

      Advice: He has already leapfrogged Tim Frazier and he logged some minutes next to Frazier and Canaan tonight. Smith could be looking at around 27 minutes per game with his new team, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues. Additionally, this is his eighth team in five seasons. Rotoworld.com

      Goran Dragic showed why the Heat traded for him on Monday with 23 points, two rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He only had one assist in his Heat debut on Saturday and was on the other end of the spectrum tonight. Dragic was highly involved in the offense and he should add plenty more double-doubles with his new team. He's one of the best point guards in the paint, which should complement the rest of the starters. He's a must-start player. Rotoworld.com

      Henry Walker made his season debut on Monday with 11 points, one rebound and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

      Advice: It was his first game since 2012 and he looked pretty good out there. Walker had a sweet dunk driving down the lane and hit a couple treys in the first quarter. He's only on a 10-day deal, but he could get another 10-day based on tonight. He's not worth owning in almost any league. Rotoworld.com

    • MRI negative on Nick Young (left knee)
      The MRI on Nick Young's left knee came back negative and he is listed as questionable to play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

      Advice: He has some swelling in his knee for the second time in 2015. Young didn't need to miss any games the last time his knee swelled up on him, so this is just a day-to-day issue. If he doesn't play, his minutes will be distributed to about four other players. Rotoworld.com

      Gerald Green will come off the bench against the Celtics on Monday.

      Advice: He played just 11 minutes on Saturday and there is no word of an injury. Green has played poorly in February, averaging 7.0 points, 1.7 boards, 1.9 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.9 treys on 39.6 percent from the field. He has a greater opportunity now, but he's too risky to start in fantasy leagues right now with the Suns getting a look at Archie Goodwin these days. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight starting, Gerald Green benched
      Brandon Knight will start against the Celtics on Monday with Gerald Green moving to the bench.

      Advice: Knight didn't look great in his debut and was forcing the issue a bit, scoring 13 points with five assists in 25 minutes. He is going to play off the ball and he should slot into Goran Dragic's role from last season -- Dragic played 35.1 minutes per game last season. Knight probably won't be as great as he was with the Bucks, but he should become a must-start player once he figures out how to play with his new team. Rotoworld.com

      Nick Young (swollen left knee) did not practice on Monday and may have an MRI following a doctor visit.

      Advice: His knee swelled up on him Monday morning after playing well on Sunday. Young did have a right knee soreness back in January, so this could be some sort of an aggravation. Should Swaggy miss time, Wayne Ellington, Jeremy Lin, Ryan Kelly and Wes Johnson will step up. Johnson and Lin are probably the best players to speculatively grab depending on what you need.

      Advice: "It will be something I have to get used to," Knight said. "It's just a matter of playing basketball and making winning plays, whether on or off the ball." After dealing two of their point guards at the trade deadline, the Suns are once again banking on playing two point guards in the same backcourt, though Knight and Eric Bledsoe are a much different version than the previous pairing of Bledsoe and Goran Dragic. Knight also admitted the trade initially caught him off guard, so he's just like the rest of us in that regard. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: "It was tough. Sometimes you didn’t know where to go," Dragic said of his debut with his new teammates. Spoelstra also said that the Heat want to "play to his strengths" when talking about Dragic's acclimation, and it will be an adjustment process for all involved. Even Dwyane Wade admitted it will take some time to play with another guy who can create off the dribble, and it sounds like the Heat will be tinkering with their new look for at least the next several contests.

      Russell Westbrook said that he's "trying to do a better job of leading."

      Advice: If he wants to lead by example, then Westbrook is doing quite well. Since the All-Star break, Westbrook has been on fire with averages of 29.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 12.3 assists, a steal and 1.3 triples on 51.8 percent shooting. Throughout the entire month of February, Westbrook checks in with averages of 30.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, 10.1 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.4 triples on 49.4 percent shooting.

    • Jeremy Lin scores 25 points in Lakers' OT win
      The Lakers stole an overtime win vs. the Celtics on Sunday behind Jeremy Lin, who scored 25 points and handed out six assists in just 30 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: Lin didn't play during the first quarter and seemed headed for another lousy night, but he caught fire as the game went on and was the difference-maker in L.A.'s comeback victory. The Lakers have won two of their past 18 games and they're headed nowhere this season, which is another reason to distrust Lin's ROS value, but he's at least worth stashing on your bench in deeper leagues.

He rounded out his gaudy line with two 3-pointers and 8-of-12 shooting overall, and he trails only James Harden for 8-cat production over the past month. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: While Irving isn't going to be an elite assists guy (5.4 per game), his steady and efficient contributions to the scoring (21.8 points per game) 3-pointers (2.2) and steals (1.5) have him turning in first-round value on the year.

      Gerald Green played 11 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday with 10 points, one rebound, three assists and two 3-pointers during a 112-107 loss.

      Advice: He hasn't looked great whatsoever. Green made just 5-of-14 from the field on Friday and he may have found himself in the doghouse. Still, the Suns probably aren't going to play Archie Goodwin this much, but the bad news is that Marcus Morris and P.J. Tucker had most of the run at small forward. In fact, all of Green's minutes only came with the starters tonight, which is a bad sign. Unless it's to add a hot free agent, Green is worth holding. Rotoworld.com

      P.J. Tucker scored a season-high 20 points against the Bulls on Saturday with six rebounds, one assist, three steals and four 3-pointers.

      Advice: The Suns do not have the same potency on offense and it's led to Tucker being more involved. That factor should help his chances to score, especially considering he's logged 32 minutes per game in his previous nine games. He won't win you a league, but he's a sneaky top 125-150 guy to own.

      Advice: This was a huge game from Gordon and the team is really, really going to need him to produce on offense. EJ (Eric Jr.) is launching a ton of treys right now and he's been a top-50 player in the past month. His injury history is behind him for now, so he's a must-start player in standard leagues.

      Advice: Admittedly, we didn't see this coming, but the Pelicans just need bodies right now. Considering Tyreke Evans plays three positions, we might see Cole log minutes in the upper 20s at the point next to 'Reke while their power forwards are on the shelf.

      Russell Westbrook took over against the Hornets on Saturday with 33 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and six turnovers on 12-of-27 from the field.

      Advice: He had 43.2 usage rate and a 47.6 assist percentage tonight, which is almost incomprehensible for a guy with 36 minutes. Westbrook is climbing into the MVP talk and few players can fill the stat sheet like he can in recent memory. In fact, he has a 37.4 usage rate and a 46.0 assist percentage on the season, which has never been done by anyone in the history of the NBA through a season (among minutes qualifiers). Rotoworld.com

    • Wolves have no plans to buy out Gary Neal
      The Timberwolves still have no desire to buy out Gary Neal's contract according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

      Advice: The Wolves are clearly looking towards the future, so it's a little surprising to see them hang onto the veteran guard. As long as he remains in Minnesota, it's hard to imagine him playing enough minutes to make an impact in fantasy leagues. Leave Neal on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Gerald Green starting again on Saturday
      Gerald Green will remain in the starting lineup for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

      Advice: Coach Jeff Hornacek has decided to bring Brandon Knight off the bench for his debut, but we doubt that this will be a permanent move. Green played 30 minutes in a start on Friday, scoring 12 points with six assists, but he's been too inconsistent to rely upon in standard leagues. The Suns also added Marcus Thornton at the trade deadline, so owners will want to see how the Suns' rotation shapes up in the coming days. Rotoworld.com

    • Norris Cole available to play on Saturday
      Norris Cole will play against the Heat on Saturday.

      Advice: In his first game away from the Heat, he gets to play against them. The Pelicans have been using Jimmer Fredette as a backup point guard, but coach Monty Williams has become even more confident in Tyreke Evans at the one. There won't be many minutes for Cole tonight. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeremy Lin scores 18 points on Friday
      Jeremy Lin scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting (1-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-8 FTs) with one rebound, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: We don't trust Byron Scott or Lin as far as we can throw them these days, but this is a decent showing for a guy who has been lacking in both confidence and production lately. He's not a must-add player or even a strong add, but he's worth keeping an eye on in case he can get on track with a terribly shallow squad. Rotoworld.com

    • D-Will gets on the board with 12 and 15 night
      Deron Williams started for Jarrett Jack (hamstring) on Friday against the Lakers, scoring 12 points on 6-of-14 shooting (no threes) with four rebounds, 15 assists, two steals, one block and five turnovers in 40 minutes.

      Advice: Nice. And it's about time. Surely the All Star break helped him get his legs back and some time off probably didn't hurt the noggin, either. We're nowhere near declaring that he's back in the vicinity of his early season production, especially after beating up on L.A., but this outing makes him an interesting gambler's target via trade.

    • Miller posts 8-4-4 line in Kings debut
      Andre Miller made his Kings debut on Friday, scoring eight points on 3-of-5 shooting with four rebounds and four assists in 23 minutes.

      Advice: It's sort of sad and cool at the same time, but Miller is probably the Kings' fifth or sixth best player right off the bat. He knows George Karl's system front and back and will be trusted in crunch time, but he's still not going to have any real fantasy value in standard formats -- with or without Darren Collison in the fold.

    • Tony Parker stinks like Pepe Le Pew
      Tony Parker missed all four shots from the field in 21 minutes against the Warriors on Friday, scoring two points at the line with one rebound, six assists, two steals and two turnovers.

      Advice: His numbers actually aren't bad on the second half of back-to-back sets this season, averaging 14.1 points, 1.9 boards, 4.8 assists and 0.6 treys. Parker's minutes were down partially because of the score, so he probably will be closer to 30 most nights. Rotoworld.com

    • Millsap goes for nine and seven with three 3s
      Elijah Millsap was productive in 26 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring nine points on 3-of-7 shooting (3-of-6 from deep) with seven rebounds and one assist.

      Advice: Millsap just won't fade away but he'll face new challenges from Rodney Hood (10 minutes) and some of his other teammates didn't play their projected load of minutes tonight, either. He's just a borderline value in 12-team leagues at best over his last four games, and trending downward he's only worth a look in 14-16 team formats. Rotoworld.com

    • Kev-Mart scores 28 points in win vs. PHO
      Kevin Martin scored 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting (1-of-6 3PTs, 7-of-9 FTs) with six rebounds, two assists and one steal in Friday's win over the Suns.

      Advice: Martin doesn't look like he's going to get bought out and he's at peak production levels right now. If your league's trade deadline hasn't passed, you're running out of time to sell high. Rotoworld.com

    • Neal scores six points in 11 minutes
      Gary Neal scored six points in 11 minutes on Friday, including two 3-pointers.

      Advice: Neal is a buyout candidate and he won't have any value barring a major surprise this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Green hits 5-of-14 shots in start vs. Minny
      Gerald Green scored 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound, six assists and one steal over 30 minutes in a start on Friday.

      Advice: It's unclear if the Suns will start their two point guards in Eric Bledsoe (12 points, seven boards, six assists) and Brandon Knight (DNP), but they'll surely stagger their minutes and Green will fit in around that. His main competition for minutes will come from newly acquired Marcus Thornton, and his situation has improved since Deadline Day making him worth a very hard look in standard formats. Rotoworld.com
