  • Gerald Green scores 24 points vs. Denver
    Gerald Green scored 24 points against the Nuggets during a 120-112 win on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, two assists and six 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: When he's on, he's on. Green has been very busy in the fourth quarter when he plays and he's racked up a whopping 13 triples over his last three games. Isaiah Thomas (ankle) did not play tonight and it's pretty clear Green will see a massive bump in production when Thomas, Eric Bledsoe or Goran Dragic need to miss game action. He is still going to be inconsistent, but feel free to give him a look until IT3 is back. Rotoworld.com

  • Goran Dragic gets 36 minutes vs. Nuggets
    Goran Dragic played 36 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday with 20 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Isaiah Thomas (ankle), the Suns' leading scorer, did not play tonight, so there wasn't a big mess in coach Jeff Hornacek's guard rotation. Dragic had been quiet over his previous four games with just 9.8 points per game, so this line was nice to see. His fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting many 20-point games once IT3 gets back, though. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Young hits 4-of-14 shots in loss
    Nick Young hit just 4-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 13 points and two blocks in Wednesday's loss.

    Advice: The Lakers were talking about "force feeding" Young tonight, but it never really happened. Like Isaiah Thomas, Gerald Green, Giannis Antetokounmpo and J.R. Smith, Young is always an interesting all-or-nothing play. Unfortunately, tonight was closer to nothing than all, and Young's been too inconsistent to be trusted as an everyday starter in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kobe Bryant hits 5-of-15 shots in loss
    Kobe Bryant hit just 5-of-15 shots, two 3-pointers and 10-of-10 free throws for 22 points, four rebounds and two assists in Wednesday's loss to the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Memphis is one of the league's best teams and plays solid defense, especially with Tony Allen guarding Kobe at times tonight. Bryant's shooting has been a disaster this season, but he's still been highly productive. And the fact he hit 10-of-10 free throws could mean he's getting some leg strength back. But once the Lakers fall completely out of the playoff race, owners have to be concerned that he may shut it down for the season with a mysterious 'back injury.' With the Lakers playing so poorly, selling high on Kobe appears to be a forward-thinking plan. Rotoworld.com

  • Eric Bledsoe says he's fine from fall
    Eric Bledsoe returned from a fall on his hip in the third quarter against the Nuggets on Wednesday, finishing with 21 points, one rebound, 10 assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: In the post-game interview, Bledsoe said he's dealt with this type of injury all the time and just needs to get treatment. Although, it's worth mentioning he did dismiss a calf contusion last season and it cost him multiple games. His owners will want to keep an eye on him until a rematch against Denver on Friday.

  • Jeremy Lin plays well again despite back
    Jeremy Lin continues to play through a tender back and hit 4-of-9 shots for 14 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's loss to the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Despite the back issue, Lin has averaged 31 minutes, 13.4 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 3-pointers on 57 percent shooting over his last five games. And that's a vast improvement over his early-season struggles. Rotoworld.com

  • Wes Johnson quietly fills stat sheet
    Wes Johnson hit just 2-of-5 shots for five points on Wednesday, but added five rebounds, an assist, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

    Advice: He had a big game on Sunday with seven points, 12 boards, two steals and three blocks, but it's important to keep in mind he's scored in double figures just three times this season, the last coming back on Nov. 12. Regardless of what else he's doing, his total lack of scoring makes him nearly unownable in most formats. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:54 pm
  • Gee's up: Alonzo gets 18 minutes
    Alonzo Gee picked up 18 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday with 11 points, five rebounds, one assist and two turnovers.

    Advice: He has seen playing time on occasion and even played over Kenneth Faried down the stretch in a game earlier this season. The Nuggets will likely throw him out there for minutes in the low 20s with Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Randy Foye (knee) hurt. He's only an option in deep leagues, of course. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:52 pm
  • Courtney Lee scores 10 against Lakers
    Courtney Lee hit 4-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Lakers generally give it up to opposing guards, but Lee was simply mediocre tonight. Every time he starts rolling he's been slowed by an injury or illness, but he's on track to start putting up bigger numbers soon. Don't panic after his last couple bland performances. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:50 pm
  • Ginobili! Manu goes for season-high 28 in win
    Manu Ginobili hit 10-of-18 shots, two 3-pointers and 6-of-7 free throws for a season-high 28 points, four rebounds and two assists in Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

    Advice: There was no way to see this one coming, as he had totaled just 19 points over his last four games and hasn't scored more than 28 points in a game since last February. He ruined Danny Green tonight, but it's nice to know he can still produce on occasion. He's not trustworthy enough to be owned in most leagues, but is worth keeping an eye on. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:33 pm
  • Chase Budinger plays just 14 minutes
    Chase Budinger played just 14 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday with seven points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He backed up Andrew Wiggins and Corey Brewer tonight, but he was still nowhere near 20 minutes. The return of Thaddeus Young seems like it's going to impact Budinger a little more than anticipated, so he's only an add in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:28 pm
  • Danny Green disappears in win over Pacers
    Danny Green cooled off on Wednesday, hitting just 1-of-4 shots for two points, five rebounds, three assists, a steal and three blocks in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Green was cooking coming in and had scored 21 and 18 points in his previous two games, but Manu Ginobili decided to return to form tonight with 28 points, leaving Green in his wake. Green should bounce back sooner than later, but a healthy and confident Ginobili is not great news for Green's owners. He did at least salvage his line tonight with the blocks and steal. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:26 pm
  • Corey Brewer gets some ball-handling in
    Corey Brewer helped handle the ball against the Bucks on Wednesday, making 7-of-17 from the field for 19 points with six rebounds, three assists, three steals, seven turnovers and on triples.

    Advice: Some players shouldn't be the focal point of an offense and Brewer is almost certainly going to see his efficiency drop with the Wolves being shorthanded. He's shot just 39.5 percent from the field in his last three games without Kevin Martin, so his season shooting of 46.5 percent is likely heading south for the winter. Still, the treys, steals and points make him a low-end fantasy option. He's not a must-own player due to ugly foul shooting, though. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:22 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard with a double-double in win
    Kawhi Leonard had 21 points, 13 rebounds, two 3-pointers and hit 8-of-12 shots in Wednesday's win over the Pacers.

    Advice: Leonard was great tonight despite a lack of steals, blocks and 3-pointers, and is averaging 17.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 0.75 3-pointers over his last four games. And this is Kawhi we love Leonard. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:19 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey scores 22 points on Wednesday
    Rodney Stuckey got loose against the Spurs' defense to hit 9-of-20 shots for 22 points, four rebounds, four assists and two steals in a team-high 35 minutes.

    Advice: He played 32 minutes on Monday and had 12 points, and is starting to play a little bit like the guy we were talking about as a sleeper early in the season. He's not likely to fill the stat sheet on most night, but he's probably going to score points for the depleted Pacers and he's averaging a respectable 14.0 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.8 3-pointers over his last four games. It comes with a price though, as he's shooting just 37 percent over that stretch, but he's just now getting healthy. If you need a scorer in a deep league, give him a look. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:04 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo has well-rounded game
    Giannis Antetokounmpo played well in his 26 minutes against the Wolves during a 103-86 win on Wednesday with 13 points, eight rebounds, four assists and one turnover.

    Advice: He's alternated good and bad games in his last five, turning in averages of 12.0 points, 6.0 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.8 steals, no blocks and no triples in that span. Antetokounmpo is going to need to increase his output in blocks and treys to really break out, but he's capable of doing it. Keep him owned for now because some other owner will pick up the buzzy player if you drop him. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:58 pm
  • O.J. Mayo starts again, plays OK
    O.J. Mayo started again on Wednesday against the Wolves with 10 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block, two 3-pointers and five turnovers on 3-of-11 from the field.

    Advice: Coach Jason Kidd seems to like the idea of using Mayo in the starting lineup, but more lines like this one will make it tough to keep him around 30 minutes. Chances are nobody is going to be running to grab him in your league anyway, so you can probably leave him on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:53 pm
  • James Harden scores 26 points on 31 FGAs
    James Harden made 10-of-31 from the field for 26 points against the Kings during a 102-89 win on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, eight assists, two steals, three blocks and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He only turned the ball over once and the Rockets did win against a good Kings team, so it's hard to bash The Beard for the ridiculous shooting clip. He set a career high in shot attempts tonight, but he's cleared the 30-point plateau in every game with at least 25 shots from the field. Regardless, Harden is a fantasy stud. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Ben McLemore takes 17 shots vs. Rockets
    Ben McLemore made 6-of-17 from the field for 14 points during a 102-89 loss to the Rockets on Wednesday with three rebounds, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was coming in as hot as ever with three games of at least 52.0 percent from the field with 3.0 treys per game in that span. Perhaps coach Mike Malone gave him the green light tonight, but that might not happen in the future with a line like this one. He's still not worth grabbing in standards despite the increase in output lately. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:07 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 27 points in win
    DeMar DeRozan scored 27 points in a win over the Hawks on Wednesday with three rebounds, two assists, five turnovers and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Kyle Lowry was also successful with 14 points, six boards, 13 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes during the 126-115 win. The Raptors ran all over the Hawks with 25 fast-break points while DeRozan matched his season output with his two treys. He was only 2-of-13 before tonight and he really needs that part of his game to come around to be an elite fantasy guy. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Greivis Vasquez scores 21 points in 17 mins.
    Greivis Vasquez was on fire against the Hawks on Wednesday with 21 points, two rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers on 8-of-12 from the field in just 17 minutes.

    Advice: This is one of the most efficient lines of the year. For the advanced stats guys out there, Vasquez put up a 36.9 usage and had an 81.5 true shooting percentage. He was horrible before tonight and made just 33.3 percent from the field, so we'll obviously need to see it again. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Lou Williams scores 22 points vs. Hawks
    Lou Williams may have had a revenge game against the Hawks on Wednesday during a win, making 6-of-11 from the field for 22 points with two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He's so hot right now. Perhaps no bench player is performing at his level, averaging 24.3 points, 1.8 boards, 2.3 steals, 3.5 treys and 0.5 turnovers on 50.0 percent from the field and 96.4 percent from the line in his last four. We'd be lying if we said we saw this coming, but he's just too hot to leave on the wire right now. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Gordon Hayward scores 24 pts w/ four steals
    Gordon Hayward, who was held to six points vs. the Bulls on Monday, bounced back with 24 points, one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, three assists and four steals in Wednesday's road loss in Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Hayward was solid from the field (8-of-15) but he made an uncharacteristic 7-of-14 free throws, dropping him from a career-best 85.9 percent FT average to 80.4 percent. He's notching career highs in virtually every category this season and the occasional hiccup should be easily overlooked by his fortunate fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Jeremy Lamb scores 21 points in 24 minutes
    Jeremy Lamb caught fire in 24 minutes of action vs. the Jazz, scoring 21 points on 7-of-8 shots including three 3-pointers, while adding four boards, two assists, three steals and one block.

    Advice: Lamb also turned the ball over three times before fouling out of the game in a frenetic performance that earned him a loud ovation from the home crowd in OKC. He was averaging 6.0 points in just 16.7 minutes in his past three games and it's futile to guess when he might explode off the bench. Most fantasy owners would be best served ignoring him, especially with Kevin Durant (foot) and Russell Westbrook (hand) on the verge of returning. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Reggie Jackson scores 22 points in OKC win
    The Thunder snapped their six-game losing streak on Wednesday, led by Reggie Jackson's 22 points on 10-of-18 shooting, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, eight assists and one steal.

    Advice: He turned the ball over five times, as usual, but at least he made more than half his shots tonight. Backup PG Sebastian Telfair was waived on Wednesday which suggests that Russell Westbrook (hand) might return as soon as Friday's game. Jackson will inevitably lose some minutes and offensive firepower, but he's still a must-own fantasy player even if he shifts to a bench role. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe returns from injury on Wednesday
    Eric Bledsoe went to the locker room in the third quarter of Wednesday's game against the Nuggets and has returned.

    Advice: He looked to land on his hip and hobbled back to the locker room under his own power. Bledsoe was down for a very long time, so it was nice to see him get back out there. He exited with 15 points, one rebound, seven assists, three steals and two turnovers. Stay tuned. If he's out, Isaiah Thomas (ankle) and Gerald Green would get bumps. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:46 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo could play some center
    Giannis Antetokounmpo could play some center against the Wolves on Wednesday with John Henson (foot) out.

    Advice: "Giannis can find himself there, too," coach Jason Kidd said. "Why not? He's 7 feet." He's playing every position, but the Bucks have cooled on him as a point guard. He was a big letdown on Tuesday, but maybe he gets it going in a matchup full of young players tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:11 pm
  • Forcefeed coming to Nick Young vs. MEM?
    Coach Byron Scott said the Lakers will "forcefeed" Nick Young in Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies to help get him going.

    Advice: Uh oh. That's basically giving the Cookie Monster an all-you-can-eat trip to the cookie stand in the mall. Young has only attempted 9.5 shots per game in his last two, so he will likely get shots in the teens. On the down side, the Grizzlies play very good defense, so he could have an inefficient game. He's a decent option in daily leagues, but owners in standards might have a better option on a 13-game night. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:28 am
  • O.J. Mayo scores 17 points as Bucks' starter
    O.J. Mayo made his first start of the season vs. the Pistons on Tuesday, scoring 17 points on 5-of-10 shooting with three 3-pointers, two rebounds, three assists and one steal.

    Advice: Jason Kidd has been juggling his lineups through the first month of the season, and tonight Mayo got the nod ahead of Khris Middleton. "We looked at [Mayo as a starter] at practice yesterday and as coaches we thought it looked good," Kidd said, by way of explanation. Mayo has enough upside to be worth a speculative add, especially since the Bucks won tonight's game, but don't be surprised if he's back in a reserve role by the end of the week. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:54 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo shoots 1-of-13 Tuesday
    Giannis Antetokounmpo had a brutal night on Tuesday, making just 1-of-13 field goals to finish with two points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and three turnovers.

    Advice: He also got into foul trouble but still logged 31 minutes, and coach Jason Kidd is showing increasing faith in him as a starter. Antetokounmpo is shooting 52.5 percent on the season, so tonight's dud should be viewed as an aberration. Look for him to bounce back vs. the Wolves' lenient defense on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:54 pm
  • O.J. Mayo will start Tuesday vs. Detroit
    O.J. Mayo will enter the starting lineup Tuesday vs. the Pistons, sending Khris Middleton back to the bench.

    Advice: Coach Jason Kidd's rotations have been all over the place this season, so while Mayo enters the starting lineup tonight, he could just as easily head back the bench in the next one. Mayo has been hit-or-miss this season, averaging 10.9 points, 3.4 assists, and 1.3 three-pointers per game while shooting 40.3 percent from the field. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach to see how Mayo fares with the starting unit. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:31 pm
  • Scott may try to shorten Kobe Bryant's PT
    Coach Byron Scott said that he may try to trim a couple minutes off Kobe Bryant's current minutes allotment, as Kobe has been struggling with fatigue during the second half of games.

    Advice: Kobe is currently averaging 35.7 minutes per game, but is also shooting a career-worst 38.1 percent from the field. Scott is attributing some of those misses to fatigue, and while a minor reduction in minutes would have a minimal impact on Kobe's overall numbers, it could have a positive effect on his field goal percentage. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:11 pm
  • Harden scores season-high 36 points
    James Harden scored a season-high 36 points in the Rockets' 91-86 win over the Knicks on Monday, hitting 11-of-22 shots (7-of-12 from deep, 7-of-7 from the line) with six rebounds, six assists, three steals and one block.

    Advice: Harden is a beast and likely to be a top-5 fantasy asset even when LeBron James gets back on track, and the Thunder guys return and get rolling. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:00 pm
  • Stuckey (wrist) productive in busy 32 minutes
    Rodney Stuckey (wrist) logged 32 minutes on Monday against the Mavs, scoring 12 points on 2-of-9 shooting (2-of-3 from deep, 6-of-6 from the line) with three rebounds, five assists and one steal.

    Advice: Given his inability to stay healthy the heavy workloads recently are an uncomfortable bonus, so give him a look in deeper formats but don't drop anybody of real value just yet. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:55 pm
  • Lou Williams stays hot with 17 points
    Lou Williams stayed somewhat hot against the Suns on Monday during a 104-100 win with 17 points, two rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's coming off the bench and is taking away a few minutes from Greivis Vasquez and Terrence Ross. Williams is a little bit like Nick Young except he does a little more than score -- he's obviously much worse in the sound-byte department, though. He's not a lock, but feel free to give him a look in standard leagues and ride him while he's hot. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:09 pm
  • Gerald Green gets 30 minutes
    Gerald Green played 30 minutes against the Raptors on Monday with 13 points, three rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers and five turnovers.

    Advice: He played down the stretch at small forward as the Suns looked to make a comeback. Green's minutes have been all over the place and he only saw 11 minutes of playing time back on Friday. The ups and downs are going to be very annoying to his fantasy owners, so he's not a must-own player. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:47 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe scores a season-high 25 points
    Eric Bledsoe scored a season-high 25 points against the Raptors on Monday with seven rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He made 8-of-16 from the field in this stat-stuffing line. Bledsoe played 37 minutes tonight and there has been a slight upward trend in his minutes, but it hasn't really showed up because the Suns had garbage time come into play in their two previous games. He has barely been in the top 100 before today, but this massive line should raise his value over one round. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:43 pm
  • Goran Dragic gets benched late vs. Raptors
    Goran Dragic was on the bench down the stretch against the Raptors on Monday with six points, one rebound, four assists and four turnovers in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Dragic missed his first four shots and couldn't create like he usually does. Coach Jeff Horacek usually goes with the flow on his guards, so nights like this will happen. This is a potential buy-low opportunity as long as you're not paying a top-50 price. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:40 pm
  • Kobe Bryant could miss some practice
    Coach Byron Scott said he plans to rest Kobe Bryant in practice instead of cutting his minutes in minutes in games.

    Advice: The Lakers really do not have a choice right now with Xavier Henry (Achilles) likely done for the season. Bryant has been taking shots at a ridiculous clip and is playing 35.7 minutes per game, but he's shooting a career-worst 38.1 percent from the field. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:13 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey upgraded to probable Monday
    Rodney Stuckey (left wrist) has been upgraded to probable on Monday after going through shootaround on Monday.

    Advice: Previously listed as questionable, Stuckey's probable designation is a good indication that he'll give it a go. Now that he's healthy enough to play, he'll look to build on the meager production he's amassed so far this season. We'd like to see him stay healthy and be a lot more efficient before recommending him as a fantasy play, but that may be asking too much. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:31 am
  • Wes Johnson has 12 boards w/ extras vs. DEN
    Wesley Johnson came alive late in Sunday's game, finishing with seven points, a season-high 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks in 42 minutes of action.

    Advice: Johnson didn't make any 3-pointers, which is a mild disappointment, but he posterized Danilo Gallinari on a late dunk and his rebound total was more than double his previous season-high. The bad news is that Johnson hasn't cracked double-digit points or made a single 3-pointer in six games -- until he gets going offensively, he's only worth owning in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 9:41 pm
  • Jeremy Lin (back) has 17 points w/ full line
    Jeremy Lin (back) wasn't limited in Sunday's disappointing loss to Denver, scoring 17 points on 8-of-15 shooting with three rebounds, five assists, two steals and three turnovers in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Lin missed Saturday's practice as a precaution but his status was never truly in doubt, and he'll get a few extra days of rest before Wednesday's game vs. the red-hot Grizzlies. After a slow start to the season, Lin has steadily improved over the past four games, averaging 13.3 points on 60.5 percent shooting, with 2.5 rebounds, 6.0 assists and 1.3 steals. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 9:38 pm
  • Jeremy Lamb shoots 0-of-6 vs. Warriors
    Jeremy Lamb never got going in 12 minutes off the bench on Sunday, missing all six of his field goal attempts to finish with five points on 5-of-5 free throws.

    Advice: He added one board and one assist without any defensive stats, and this disappearing act is precisely why he's so frustrating to own in fantasy leagues. His big games are scattered among many more duds, and he's only worth attention in deep leagues while guys like Andre Roberson, Anthony Morrow and Lance Thomas are healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:08 pm
  • Reggie Jackson barely misses triple-double
    Reggie Jackson fell just two assists shy of a triple-double vs. the Warriors on Sunday, scoring 22 points with 11 rebounds and eight assists in 36 minutes of action.

    Advice: He shot just 10-of-26 from the field and his FG percentage continues to be a minor drag, but he compensated with one 3-pointer, one steal and a relatively stingy two turnovers. He may shift to a bench role upon Russell Westbrook's return but he's played too well to fall much below 32 minutes per game, even when OKC is at full strength. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:05 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey (wrist) questionable for Mon.
    Rodney Stuckey (sprained left wrist) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. Dallas.

    Advice: The injury is to his non-shooting hand, so there's the positive in this situation. Stuckey just hasn't been able to stay healthy this season, and is currently averaging just 10.0 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game on 38.2 percent shooting from the field. Stuckey will have plenty of opportunity when he's finally able to play, but right now, he doesn't look to be worth owning in standard leagues. If he's unable to go, Donald Sloan will continue to get all the minutes he can handle. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 12:47 pm
  • Jeremy Lin (back) will play Sunday vs. Denver
    Jeremy Lin said that his back is fine and he will suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: The injury was never considered serious, so go ahead and get him in your lineups. Lin is not getting a lot of FGA this year playing next to Kobe Bryant, averaging just 8.0 attempts per game to go with 11.8 points, 4.8 assists, 1.1 three-pointers, and a career-worst 0.8 steals. He's not a must-start guy on a nightly basis, but as the only true starting-caliber point guard in LA, he's worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 12:00 pm
  • Lou Williams earns praise for his defense
    Lou Williams poured in a career-high 36 points vs. the Cavaliers on Saturday, but coach Dwane Casey singled out his defense for praise.

    Advice: "Most of all, I'm impressed with Lou's defense," Casey said. "He had a reputation of being a scorer but now he's doing a much better job defensively for us, which allows him to stay in and guard guys like [Dion] Waiters and [Kyrie] Irving and people like that." Anything that keeps Williams on the court is terrific news for fantasy owners -- he's currently averaging 13.4 points, 1.5 threes and 1.3 steals in just 19 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 6:59 am
  • Gordon Hayward scores 31 points in a loss
    Gordon Hayward was terrific in a losing effort against the Pelicans on Saturday, making 9-of-16 from the field for 31 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He made 11-of-14 from the line, which serves as a great indicator of how aggressive he was tonight. Hayward adding some muscle to his frame was highly evident tonight and his new style should help him sustain a better shooting clip. The breakout is real. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 11:16 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard goes for 21 and nine in win
    Kawhi Leonard played 36 minutes against the Nets during a 99-87 win on Saturday with 21 points, nine rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: He is playing through some blurry vision right now and made just 9-of-19 from the field. Leonard is starting to fill it up in several fantasy categories and he will be a monster once his vision gets corrected. He should be viewed as a top-20 fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:55 pm
  • Danny Green drops 25 on 105.0 eFG%
    Danny Green kept his momentum going on Saturday against the Nets with 21 points, seven rebounds, two assists, three blocks and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: That's good for a 105.0 effective field goal percentage. Green is money in fantasy leagues and he has seven blocks in his last two games. There's no reason why he should be on any waiver wires. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:50 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 20 points
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 20 points against the Wizards during a 111-100 loss on Saturday, adding four rebounds, five assists, three steals and two turnovers.

    Advice: He made all eight shots from the line and was 6-of-11 from the field in the loss. Antetokounmpo has started to get into a groove on the offensive end and his discovery of the one-dribble drive has gone a long way to help his shooting percentages. He's worth owning in standard leagues, but most of value will likely lie in March and April. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:28 pm
  • James Harden bounces back, wins it for Rox
    James Harden hit 8-of-18 shots, four 3-pointers and 12-of-13 free throws for 32 points, eight boards, four assists and two steals in Saturday's comeback win over the Mavs.

    Advice: Harden was fouled late, made the shot and hit the free throw for a tough 3-point play to put the Rockets ahead for good on Saturday. He scored just six points on Tuesday, but bounced back for 24 points on Thursday and 32 tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:51 pm
  • Chase Budinger chips in season-high 11 points
    Chase Budinger chipped in a season-high 11 points in the Wolves' home loss to the Kings on Saturday.

    Advice: He made 3-of-6 shots including two 3-pointers, while adding two rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes off the bench. Despite Minnesota's injuries this season, he's only been worth a look as a perimeter specialist in deeper leagues. One double-digit scoring performance doesn't change the equation. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:29 pm
  • Ben McLemore scores season-high 22 points
    Ben McLemore set a new season-high on Saturday with 22 points, making 9-of-17 shots including four 3-pointers in 41 minutes of action vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: The Kings blew a few big leads this week, but they took control of tonight's game in the second half and didn't let go. McLemore is shooting a solid 44.3 percent from the field with copious 3-pointers, but his inconsistency and lack of supporting stats takes a big bite out of his 8-cat/9-cat value. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:27 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe scores nine points in win
    Eric Bledsoe scored nine points on 2-of-10 from the field against the Pacers on Saturday with nine rebounds, five assists and six turnovers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: It was one of his worst games of the season, but the Suns bench did their thing to get the win. Bledsoe came in hot over his last 10 games, making 50.5 percent from the field to go with averages of 14.1 points, 4.6 boards, 5.2 assists and 1.3 steals. He'll be better against the Raptors on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:12 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 20 points vs. Cleveland
    DeMar DeRozan scored 20 points on 7-of-18 shooting vs. the Cavs on Saturday, adding five rebounds, three assists and one steal in a comeback win.

    Advice: He's shooting just north of 40 percent on the season, but it's only a matter of time before he approaches his career average of 44.5 percent. His stellar FT shooting takes the sting out of subpar shooting nights like this, and fantasy owners have to appreciate the career-best 1.8 steals he's averaging this season. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:03 pm
  • Gerald Green scores 23 points vs. Pacers
    Gerald Green caught fire against the Pacers on Saturday with 23 points, three rebounds, two assists and five 3-pointers on 8-of-15 from the field in 22 minutes.

    Advice: He had the worst year of his career in Indiana in 2012-13 and the Pacers basically just threw him in for their deal to acquire Luis Scola last season, but he showed them a thing or two tonight. Green is still going to have his minutes in check, but nights like these make him fun to own. On the other hand, he'll have his 5-point nights quite often too. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:54 pm
  • Lou Williams drops career-high 36 vs. Cavs
    Lou Williams was unstoppable vs. the Cavs on Saturday, setting a new career-high with 36 points (9-of-19 FGs, 15-of-15 FTs) on Saturday, adding three 3-pointers, four rebounds and three steals in just 29 minutes.

    Advice: He made 9-of-9 free throws in his first nine minutes alone, and this is an extreme example of the instant offense that Toronto was hoping he'd provide when they traded for him this summer. His 18-20 minute bench role isn't well-suited to sustainable fantasy value, unfortunately, and he's likely to remain an unsteady option in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:49 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey exits w/ sprained left wrist
    Rodney Stuckey sprained his left wrist after tripping over a photographer on Saturday, and he will not return.

    Advice: Stuckey is already struggling with his conditioning after missing time due to a foot injury, and we can only hope that this injury doesn't cost him any more time. X-rays were negative and we're considering him questionable for Monday's road game in Dallas -- with C.J. Watson (foot) and George Hill (ankle) already ruled out, Donald Sloan may need to once again log 40+ minutes if Stuckey doesn't suit up. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:08 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo back as Bucks starter
    Giannis Antetokounmpo will return to Milwaukee's starting lineup on Saturday, sending Jerryd Bayless to the bench.

    Advice: Jason Kidd unexpectedly benched Antetokounmpo on Friday, playing him 15 minutes in a blowout defeat vs. the Raptors. Giannis may still be dealing with a minor ankle injury but he's worth deploying now that he's reclaimed his spot in the Bucks' starting lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:58 pm
  • Kobe Bryant (rest) misses practice on Saturday
    Kobe Bryant (rest) did not practice on Saturday.

    Advice: Coach Byron Scott said he had him rest for heavy legs. "He’s such a workaholic that sometimes it can hurt you more than help you. So I told him ‘I’ll see you Sunday,‘" Scott said. Bryant definitely looked like he needed the rest with he and Nick Young missing their first 12 shots in an embarrassing loss to the Mavericks on Friday. He'll be ready on Sunday against the Nuggets. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:31 pm
  • Jeremy Lin and Carlos Boozer skip practice
    Jeremy Lin (back) and Carlos Boozer (shoulder) skipped practice on Saturday.

    Advice: The injuries are not considered serious and both players are probable for Sunday's game. Lin did have to battle two different bouts with back pain last season and it did cost him some game action, so this isn't nothing. The Lakers cannot afford for Lin to go down and would be down to Ronnie Price and Jordan Clarkson. Neither player are worth a grab at this juncture and we'll give Lin the benefit of the doubt for now. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:23 pm
  • Nick Young still wearing soft cast
    Nick Young has been playing with a soft cast on his right thumb for all three games this season.

    Advice: While his right arm may be strictly for buckets, it's possible the cast on his shooting hand could have hindered him. Young made just 2-of-7 from the field for five points against the Mavericks on Friday. He is really going to struggle in most non-scoring categories in fantasy leagues, so it's not going to be easy for him to be a top-120 guy. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:52 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard still has foggy vision
    Kawhi Leonard said he still has foggy vision and is sensitive to light.

    Advice: "There’s really nothing I can do about it," Leonard said. "I just have to play through it." He added that in an extreme case he could have to deal with it throughout the season. Even with the vision issues, Leonard has still been a top-30 guy in the past two weeks, so his fantasy owners shouldn't panic with this news. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 11:31 am
  • Lin gets on track during blowout loss
    Jeremy Lin got on track during the Lakers' blowout loss to the Mavs on Friday, scoring 18 points on 8-of-11 shooting with four rebounds, five assists, two threes and a block.

    Advice: Like many of the games tonight, this one was not one to evaluate as the Lakers lost by 34 points. Jordan Hill kept things rolling with 16 points on 7-of-7 shooting, 10 boards, a steal and a block, and Kobe Bryant hit just 6-of-22 shots with a full line and what else is new. Nick Young was quiet with five points and two assists, and Ed Davis was too with only four points and three boards in 12 minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:55 pm
  • Danny Green fills the stat sheet vs. Wolves
    Danny Green filled the stat sheet against the Wolves on Friday with 18 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal, four blocks and four 3-pointers during a 121-92 win.

    Advice: He made 6-of-9 from the field and both free throws for one of the biggest stat lines of the night. Fantasy owners tend to focus on points too much, but Green has put up top-60 value on the season. He's worth owning in all standard formats. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:04 pm
  • Lee (flu) scores just five points vs. Celtics
    Courtney Lee (flu) was one of five players to return to action on Friday for the Grizzlies, but managed just five points on 2-of-5 shooting with two assists and a 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Lee has been great this season and we're not about to dog him for tonight's one-sided and strange game. Look for him to get back on track against the Clippers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:39 pm
  • Corey Brewer has a letdown in start
    Corey Brewer started against the Spurs on Friday during a 121-92 loss, scoring eight points, three rebounds, four assists and three steals in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He made 3-of-10 from the field and is certainly going to have his issues in efficiency. Brewer has shot the ball a lot better in the past two seasons, but that was largely due to him getting easy buckets in transition. His efficiency will likely be headed south, but he's still worth owning in standard leagues until Kevin Martin (wrist) is back or until he gets dealt. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:35 pm
  • Chase Budinger plays 25 minutes
    Chase Budinger played 25 minutes off the bench against the Spurs on Friday with seven points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He's going to see minutes in the 20s with Kevin Martin (wrist) down and is really the only consistent 3-point shooter off the bench. Budinger could be a sneaky asset in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:24 pm
  • Antetokounmpo (ankle) plays 15 minutes
    Giannis Antetokounmpo's status for Friday's game was all over the board, but he eventually decided to suit up and finished with seven points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 15 minutes.

    Advice: The Bucks got the snot beat out of them by the Raptors and in the grand scheme of things it probably would have been better for him to sit. We've been telling you he's a must-own player and that really shouldn't change based on a minor ankle injury, so if you buy into that you probably want to stay the course. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:57 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe scores 13 in well-rounded line
    Eric Bledsoe took care of business against the 76ers on Friday with 13 points, five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes.

    Advice: This game was over in the third quarter despite the 76ers actually leading 27-26 at the end of the first. Bledsoe was booed for his comments about the University of Kentucky being able to beat the 76ers and he also got into it with Nerlens Noel, a former UK Wildcat. He is going to have some ups and downs, but Bledsoe should be an early-mid round guy in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:54 pm
  • Courtney Lee will start against the Celtics
    Courtney Lee (illness) will start against the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: He is over his illness just in time for a revenge game. Lee has been phenomenal all season, but he's obviously not going to stay this hot. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 4:55 pm
  • Update: Giannis Antetokounmpo is available
    Updating a previous item, Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is available to play against the Raptors.

    Advice: Just when you thought the Bucks weren't going to do their usual misinformation dance, they go ahead and do it. Coach Jason Kidd is making us miss Larry Drew, which is no small feat. Antetokounmpo might not play, but maybe he plays 47 minutes. Who knows? Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 4:42 pm
  • Corey Brewer is indeed starting on Friday
    Corey Brewer will get the start against the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: As expected, he'll join Mo Williams, Andrew Wiggins Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng against the champs. Brewer should pick up around eight minutes and could be in the mid-30s tonight while minutes should be dispersed to Muhammad, Anthony Bennett, Chase Budinger and Robbie Hummel tonight. Brewer is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:49 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo out for Friday night
    Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) will not play against the Raptors on Friday.

    Advice: Well, it looks like he had some discomfort in his ankle. Antetokounmpo had an ugly ankle roll when he landed on Brandon Knight's foot on Wednesday, but he did play through it. He could miss more time and fantasy owners will want to put him on their benches. Jerryd Bayless will start, but the bigger winners in fantasy may be Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:39 pm
  • Jeremy Lamb moving to the bench
    Jeremy Lamb will move to the bench against the the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: Andre Roberson is back in the starting lineup and isn't expected to play more than 20 minutes, so Lamb should still get some run. He's been far too inconsistent on the season to use in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:25 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo has good chance to play
    Giannis Antetokounmpo "appears to be a go unless he reports some pain after warmups," according to C.F. Gardner of the Journal-Sentinel.

    Advice: When it comes to Bucks players being a game-time decision, we'll take whatever info we can get. Larry Sanders was a game-time decision on Wednesday, but the team didn't announce he was starting until seconds before the actual tip. Antetokounmpo owners will want to check back and might want to bench him unless he's clearly the best option. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:22 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey working on his conditioning
    Rodney Stuckey is working on getting his conditioning back after spending two weeks on the sidelines.

    Advice: "I only played 26 minutes, but it felt like I played 35," Stuckey said after Wednesday's win over the Hornets. "It’s all about getting my legs back underneath me and getting my wind back up. Here within the next week or so I should be back to normal." Stuckey is going to be eased back into the rotation, but with George Hill (knee) and C.J. Watson (foot) out he'll have plenty of opportunity. However, he really doesn't do much aside from score, so he's not necessarily a must-own guy in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 2:09 pm
  • Corey Brewer likely to start for Wolves
    Corey Brewer is likely to start for the Wolves following the Kevin Martin (wrist) injury.

    Advice: While Brewer might be better off the bench, the Wolves are just running out of options with 80 percent of their opening night starting lineup not ready for Friday night against the Spurs. He should have some very nice short-term value, but the possibility of him being traded certainly casts some doubt on his value this year. He should be owned in standard leagues just because he has so many minutes going his way. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:16 am
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) headed for GTD
    Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) was a full participant during Friday's shootaround, and is headed for a game-time decision vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: "At shootaround he looked all right," head coach Jason Kidd said of Giannis. "We'll see how he feels in a couple hours." Kidd isn't one to make his lineups readily available, so we likely won't know of Giannis' status until just before tip-off. That being said, things are looking positive for The Greek Freak, but if he were to sit O.J. Mayo would see some increased opportunity. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:58 am
  • Courtney Lee (illness) says he'll play Friday
    Courtney Lee (illness) went through shootaround and said that he'll play Friday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: With Tony Allen (illness), Beno Udrih (illness), and Quincy Pondexter (illness) listed as questionable for this one, Lee could see some heavy minutes tonight in a favorable matchup vs. the Celtics. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:15 am
  • Kobe happy to have Nick Young back in action
    Kobe Bryant stated during a recent interview that he's happy to have Nick Young back in action.

    Advice: "You got a player who can get buckets and create. He does wonders," Bryant said. "Nick is a phenomenal talent. He has a pull-up jump shot and is creating mismatches. I’m very happy to have him back." Bryant also went on to say that he thinks Young will compete for Sixth Man of the Year honors, a high compliment from a man who doesn't give out many. Young is averaging 16.5 points and 2.0 three-pointers through his first two games back with the team, and while he doesn't bring much else to the stat sheet, his scoring and 3-point shot making make him worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:30 am
  • Flip says Corey Brewer too valuable to trade
    Head coach and team president Flip Saunders stated during a recent interview that Corey Brewer is too valuable to the team to be traded.

    Advice: This seems like posturing more than anything, as the Timberwolves are currently sitting on record of 3-7. Saunders may value Brewer's hard-nosed defense, but his play isn't exactly equating to wins for the Wolves. He's averaging 10.2 points and 2.1 steals on the season over 23.5 minutes of action, so he can be viewed as a steals specialist for owners in deep leagues. However, if he is traded to a title contender (a team with a deep wing rotation), he'll likely become a non-factor in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:40 am
  • Nick Young receives flop warning from league
    Nick Young received a flop warning from the NBA on Thursday.

    Advice: Young drew a foul on Kyle Korver while attempting a 3-point shot, and as the video shows, Korver did not even make contact with Young. The first offense is just a warning, but the second results in a $5,000 fine, with each additional flop resulting in an increased penalty. Young has brought a much-needed scoring-punch to the Lakers' second unit, and is averaging 17.0 points and 2.0 three-pointers through his first two games. He doesn't do much aside from score, but should be able to sustain limited value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 3:02 pm
  • Courtney Lee (illness) questionable for Fri.
    Courtney Lee (illness) is questionable to play Friday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Tony Allen, Beno Udrih, Kosta Koufos, Jon Leuer, Quincy Pondexter, and Jarnell Stokes are also being listed as questionable with the same illness, leaving the Grizzlies with six healthy bodies for Friday's game. Vince Carter would be in line for some heavy minutes if all seven players are unable to go, and he would make for a nice short-term option in standard leagues. Tayshaun Prince would also have some increased opportunity, while Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol would get all the minutes they can handle. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:10 pm
  • Corey Brewer had to gut through game Weds
    Corey Brewer (illness) admitted that he had to gut through Wednesday's win over the Knicks.

    Advice: Brewer wasn't certain if he would be able to suit up after missing morning shootaround, but was able to play 29 minutes despite his illness. "I was hurting so bad," Brewer said. The 28-year-old should be good-to-go for Friday's game against the Spurs, but his fantasy value is still limited to deeper leagues, despite the six steals on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:59 am
  • Kobe Bryant scores 29 on 28 FGA, 10 FTA
    Kobe Bryant made 10-of-28 from the field and 8-of-10 from the line for 29 points during a 98-92 win over the Rockets on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

    Advice: He started off fine making 6-of-11 from the field before halftime, but things turned sour in the second half with miss after miss. Bryant's usage actually dropped to 37.3 after tonight with his 36.8 in the win, but he's still on pace to have one of the highest usage rates ever -- he has the record of 38.7 in 2005-06. Expect Kobe to take plenty of shots against the Mavericks on Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:21 am
  • Jeremy Lin doesn't get his revenge
    Jeremy Lin didn't get his revenge game against the Rockets on Wednesday with three points, four assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers.

    Advice: Patrick Beverley's defense trumps a revenge game almost every time. Lin should be better his next time out, but he did lose some minutes at point guard, which will be worth watching. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:13 am
  • Swaggy PhD: Nick Young cures Lakers
    Nick Young helped the Lakers win their second game in a row in a 98-92 victory in Houston, scoring 16 points with four rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: The Lakers went 1-9 without Young, but they've now won both games with him. He's getting plenty of shots in the second unit and it looks like he'll be able to score in the teens. His owners shouldn't expect much else besides scoring, but give him a look if that's what your team is lacking. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:54 pm
  • Jeremy Lamb's inconsistency is consistent
    Jeremy Lamb hit just 2-of-5 shots (both 3-pointers) for eight points, two rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: If there's anything consistent about Lamb it's his inconsistency. He's scored 8, 19, 5, 24 and 5 points in each of his last five games and things could get a little dicey now. Sebastian Telfair broke out of a slump tonight, and shooting guard Andre Roberson finally returned from his injury tonight. And once Perry Jones is back from his knee injury, Lamb's productivity could fluctuate even more than it has lately. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:49 pm
  • Corey Brewer has six steals against NYK
    Corey Brewer played through an illness on Wednesday and looked healthy with 14 points, two rebounds, two assists and six steals in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Brewer had an IV to help his dehydration and he was very questionable to play tonight. This was a big game for his trade value and he's unlikely to be this success again all season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:15 pm
  • Greivis Vasquez returned to action on Wednesday November 19. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:03 pm
  • Gerald Green scores 12 in 22 minutes
    Gerald Green hit 6-of-13 shots and zero 3-pointers for 12 points, three rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block off the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: After getting eight minutes and failing to score last Friday, Green played 28 minutes and blew up for 26 points and four 3-pointers on Saturday. He backed that up with seven points in 20 minutes on Monday, and then tonight's 12-point game in 22 minutes. The way things are going for Green, he's due for a monster game, just as his frustrated new owners are ready to pull the plug. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:17 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe now hot guard for Suns
    Eric Bledsoe hit 6-of-11 shots for 18 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.

    Advice: It looks like it's his turn to get hot, after Isaiah Thomas was cooking for the first week or two, and then gave way to the hot hand of Goran Dragic. Dragic had 12 points and four assists tonight, while Thomas continued his recent quiet ways with five points on 1-of-9 shooting off the bench. Jeff Hornacek is going to ride the player on the best streak all season, making it very tough for any of these guys to be fully reliable. Hey, IT2 - you're up next. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:07 pm
  • O.J. Mayo played 39 minutes vs. Nets
    O.J. Mayo played a season-high 39 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday with 21 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: The triple-overtime game obviously helped him, but the high minutes are nice to see considering how out of shape he was last season. Mayo is shooting just 35 percent from the field this month and hasn't done enough to warrant an add in most leagues just yet. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:06 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey take a lot of shots in return
    Rodney Stuckey returned to the lineup on Wednesday against the Hornets, making 5-of-13 from the field for 11 points with two rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He played mostly shooting guard and continues to turn in a high usage rate. Stuckey logged only 13.3 minutes per game, but now he's likely going to stay in the mid-20 range. Considering he doesn't usually shoot the ball well and doesn't do much outside of scoring, he's not a great player to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:46 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard quietly fills stat sheet
    Kawhi Leonard played 37 minutes and had 12 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and four steals on 4-of-11 shooting in Wednesday's tough win over the Cavs.

    Advice: Leonard's game could have been a lot better had he made some shots and some 3-pointers, but it wasn't bad, either. He's playing at a high level right now and living up to the hype, despite the best efforts of his coach. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:29 pm
  • Corey Brewer expected to play Wednesday
    Corey Brewer is expected to play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: The report does add "barring any changes," so it's not a 100 percent lock. Brewer should still be on most fantasy benches tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:26 pm
  • Corey Brewer questionable with an illness
    Corey Brewer (illness) received an IV and is questionable to play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Well, it's flu season. Brewer and Kevin Martin could both miss tonight, so Shabazz Muhammad, Glenn Robinson III, Chase Budinger and Robbie Hummel may all have to help out. Brewer should obviously be benched in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:49 pm
  • C-Lee, Tony Allen among five DNPs for Grizz
    The Grizzlies have ruled out Courtney Lee, Tony Allen, Beno Udrih, Kosta Koufos and Jon Leuer for Wednesday's game, as all of them have the flu.

    Advice: Memphis has a 10-1 record but they'll be really tested with so many rotation players out vs. the Raptors. Quincy Pondexter emerges as a viable short-term option, as does Vince Carter -- the Raptors will be honoring him in Toronto tonight, giving him a bit of extra motivation. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:36 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe thinks Kentucky can beat Philly
    Eric Bledsoe said he would take the University of Kentucky over the Sixers in a seven-game series.

    Advice: "I'll definitely take Kentucky," Bledsoe said. "I think Philly would probably get maybe one game." Kentucky just dominated No. 5 Kansas by 32 on Tuesday while the 76ers have lost games by an average of 16.9 points per game and have a putrid 88.3 offensive efficiency rating -- no team has been below 92 since 2003-04. The former Kentucky Wildcat will take on the 76ers on Friday and plenty of good seats are still available. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (flu) had to go to the hospital
    Courtney Lee (illness) had to go to the hospital because he was so dehydrated but hopes to play on Wednesday against the Raptors.

    Advice: The Grizzlies will be under the weather tonight and it's probably doubtful to see Lee suit up tonight. Considering it's an 11-game night, his fantasy owners will want to take him out of their lineups. Tayshaun Prince is likely to start, but Quincy Pondexter is the preferred play. Vince Carter could also have a season-high in minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (flu) questionable Wednesday
    Courtney Lee (flu) is questionable for Wednesday's game against Toronto.

    Advice: Tony Allen, Kosta Koufos, Beno Udrih, and Jon Leuer are also questionable with the same illness and things are not looking good for the Grizzlies at the moment. If they end up sitting this one out, expect to see a lot of Vince Carter and Quincy Pondexter while rookies Jarnell Stokes and Jordan Adams could get in on the action. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Goran Dragic to test free agency next summer
    According to reports, Goran Dragic will test out free agency next summer.

    Advice: After coming to life last season for the Suns, Dragic will surely command huge interest from around the league if he opts out of his contract in the summer. However, this doesn't mean that he will leave the Suns even though it has been a huge adjustment for him to play alongside fellow point guards Isaiah Thomas and Eric Bledsoe. This is definitely something we will monitor, but for now Dragic's owners can continue deploying him as usual. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (foot) will play Wednesday
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) will play in Wednesday's game against Charlotte.

    Advice: This is excellent news for the Pacers as they have been ravaged by injuries all season long. It is unclear how many minutes Stuckey will see Wednesday, but he likely be eased into action. He will be worth a flier in deeper leagues while owners in standard leagues should keep a close eye on him. His return could spell trouble for the value of Donald Sloan and A.J. Price but that remains to be seen. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:16 am
  • Rodney Stuckey (foot) is probable Wednesday
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Owners in deep leagues should definitely consider taking a flier on him due to the lack of depth the Pacers have right now with George Hill(knee) and C.J. Watson (ankle) still recovering from injury. Stuckey can put up points in a hurry and though his minutes might be limited at first, he could play a huge role for the Pacers this season. If he does suit up, he will eat into the minutes of Donald Sloan while shattering the value of A.J. Price. Check back before tip-off for the latest updates. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon Hayward returned to action on Tuesday November 18. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:47 pm
  • Ben McLemore held to single-digit pts again
    Ben McLemore was held to single-digit points for the second straight game on Tuesday, going 1-of-6 from the field for two points with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Playing time hasn't been a big issue for McLemore this season, and thus far he's held off rookie Nik Stauskas for the SG job, but his scoring has plummeted after five straight double-digit games from Nov. 5-13. He contributes very few rebounds (3.0), assists (1.0), steals (0.5) or blocks (0.0), so standard-league owners should look elsewhere for points and triples. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:39 pm
  • Gordon Hayward (illness) quiet on Tuesday
    Gordon Hayward (illness) was quiet in Tuesday's home victory, hitting 4-of-12 shots to finish with 13 points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals in 30 minutes.

    Advice: He was 1-of-7 from downtown and turned the ball over four times, and never seemed in rhythm after being slowed by an illness for the past few days. Hayward was on fire to start the season and he's embracing his go-to status with the Jazz, so fantasy owners shouldn't be soured by a couple of poor games. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:49 pm
  • Jeremy Lamb has well-rounded line vs. Utah
    Jeremy Lamb posted a nice all-around line in 36 minutes on Tuesday, scoring 19 points with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Lamb has been up-and-down since returning from his back injury on Nov. 7, but he has explosive potential with the Thunder desperately short-handed. He made only five of his 15 shot attempts tonight, but made up for it with a 6-of-6 mark at the FT line. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:36 pm
  • Reggie Jackson held in check Tuesday vs. Utah
    Reggie Jackson had three rebounds and handed out seven assists vs. the Jazz on Tuesday, but he scored just 10 points on 4-of-13 FGs and 1-of-1 FTs.

    Advice: Trey Burke isn't known for his lock-down defense but he gave Jackson fits tonight, and OKC's entire offense was out of synch as they finished a combined 30-of-84 from the field (35.7 percent). R-Jax has been a second-round fantasy value this year, if you ignore his 3.6 turnovers per game, but he'll inevitably slide down closer to the 60-80 range once Russell Westbrook returns. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:36 pm
  • Wes Johnson held to four points in 32 minutes
    Wes Johnson finished Tuesday's game with a mere four points, one rebound, two assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Johnson has played the second-most minutes of any Lakers player this season, yet he's scored double-digit points just three times and is shooting an abysmal 31.8 percent from the field. Nick Young's return presents yet another challenge to his fantasy value, and owners can confidently leave him on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:09 pm
  • Jeremy Lin bounces back w/ 15 pts, 10 dimes
    Jeremy Lin bounced back from Sunday's scoreless dud, scoring 15 points with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, two steals and a season-high 10 assists in Tuesday's win in Atlanta.

    Advice: Lin is off to a quiet start this season, averaging 11.7 points on 43.2 percent shooting, while attempting only 8.1 shots per game. Those are all the lowest numbers since his rookie season in 2010-11 and owners should strive to be patient, as tonight's game is a timely reminder of his upside as the Lakers' unquestioned starting PG. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:09 pm
  • Kobe Bryant hits 10-of-18 shots for 28 points
    Kobe Bryant was in the groove vs. Atlanta on Tuesday, sinking 10-of-18 shots with three 3-pointers to finish with a team-high 28 points.

    Advice: Bryant added four rebounds, three assists and one steal to round out his efficient performance. He leads the NBA in scoring at 27.3 points per game despite shooting a mere 37.7 percent from the field prior to tonight's stellar performance. He's over the flu that slowed him down this weekend and even Nick Young's return won't have a significant impact on Kobe's shot totals, which is good news for fantasy owners relying on his volume scoring. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:06 pm
  • Nick Young scores 17 efficient pts in debut
    Nick Young (thumb) made his season debut on Tuesday, scoring 17 points with two 3-pointers, five rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Swaggy P had a few typically erratic shot attempts, but he was generally under control and efficient, which isn't usually the case -- he's a 42.9 percent shooter for his career, and was at just 41.3 percent last season. Fantasy owners may find him useful for scoring and 3-point shooting, but don't expect well-rounded production. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:05 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey probable vs Hornets on Weds
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Advice: Stuckey has practiced for the last two days, so it's looking more and more likely that he'll suit up against the Hornets. The Pacers will likely keep his minutes in check on Wednesday, but his return to the lineup will cut into Donald Sloan and A.J. Price's fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:26 am
  • Nick Young to come off bench Tuesday
    Nick Young (thumb) will come off the bench as he makes his 2014-15 season debut against the Hawks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Swaggy's back. While Young will likely find himself in the Lakers' starting lineup sooner or later, Lakers' head coach will ease him back into action against the Hawks on Tuesday. Fantasy owners can expect Swaggy P to serve as the Lakers' second scoring option behind Kobe Bryant, but need to be aware of the low field goal percentage and minimal peripherals that will come with his scoring.

  • Eric Bledsoe making sacrifices in rotation
    Eric Bledsoe said he is fine making sacrifices as part of the Suns' three-guard rotation with Isaiah Thomas and Goran Dragic.

    Advice: Though still adjusting to playing off the ball more, Eric Bledsoe said he's OK with the Suns' guard rotation. "Some games it's a struggle and some games it goes well," the 24-year-old said. "You just have to stick with it. It's tough, but at the end of the day it's about the team. It's about making sacrifices." Bledsoe's game-to-game numbers have fluctuated due to the guard rotation, but fantasy owners still have to be happy with his averages as he's been a top-40 player thus far. Rotoworld.com

  • Kawhi Leonard only plays 20 minutes on Monday
    Kawhi Leonard played just 20 minutes against the 76ers during a 100-75 win on Monday with five points, 11 rebounds, two assists and three steals.

    Advice: He had 10 boards before the halftime and coach Gregg Popovich didn't need his stars in the second half. Leonard has been outstanding since his slow start and he'll get to guard LeBron James in a big matchup on Wednesday night. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:40 pm
  • Danny Green fills the stat sheet on Monday
    Danny Green filled the stat sheet against the 76ers on Monday with 11 points, two rebounds, four assists, one steal, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Like most Spurs, he's capable of putting up very useful fantasy lines without much scoring output. Green is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:32 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe bounces back on Monday
    Eric Bledsoe bounced back on Monday against the Celtics during a 118-114 win with 15 points, five rebounds, seven assists, three steals and three turnovers.

    Advice: He didn't make any field goal attempts on Saturday and had a few big plays late to help the Suns get to 6-5 following the win tonight. Bledsoe might sit in some stretches this season because of the Suns having so much depth, but the stats should be there. He'll be more of an early-mid round guy. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:01 pm
  • Goran Dragic looks great on Monday at Boston
    Goran Dragic had another impressive showing on Monday against the Celtics with 22 points, six rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's suddenly been nailing treys at 45.8 percent over his last five, averaging 18.0 points, 2.8 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.2 triples per game in that span. Dragic has also seen consistent minutes and coach Jeff Hornacek is going to have a tough time benching him as long as he's playing well. He's probably not going to be this good, though. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:46 pm
  • Courtney Lee starting on Monday vs. Rockets
    Courtney Lee will start on Monday against the Rockets.

    Advice: We're not sure what the Tayshaun Prince experiment was all about, but it never really impacted Lee's value anyway. He should be in all lineups at least until he cools off. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:54 pm
  • Corey Brewer dealing with trade rumors
    Corey Brewer said he received 30 calls on Sunday night because of the trade rumors.

    Advice: The Wolves aren't going anywhere and Brewer could wind up on the Cavs or Rockets. If he is traded, that should open up some more minutes for Andrew Wiggins, Shabazz Muhammad and Chase Budinger. Brewer isn't worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:52 pm
  • Gordon Hayward is feeling better
    Gordon Hayward is feeling better from an illness and is expected to play on Tuesday against the Thunder.

    Advice: He was sick on Saturday night, but had his worst game of the season with just 12 points on 3-of-10 from the field. Hayward should be locked and loaded in all fantasy lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:18 pm
  • Harden thinks Reggie Jackson deserves payday
    James Harden thinks Reggie Jackson deserves his payday.

    Advice: Harden didn't specify it should be with the Thunder. "He has to get the money that he’s earned and that he’s worked his whole life for," he said. "It’s the nature of the business. It’s going to happen every single year and it’s going to continue to happen." Jackson has put himself in a position to earn a big contract during the offseason and it will be interesting to see how the Thunder handle the situation that will unfold. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:53 am
  • Gordon Hayward feeling good under Snyder
    Gordon Hayward said he's "extremely comfortable" in Quin Snyder's system.

    Advice: Hayward is having a breakout season after signing a highly-criticized max contract during the offseason. Averaging 19.2 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.7 3-pointers on 48.3 percent shooting, he's been an absolute steal for owners who grabbed him in their fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:23 am
  • Kobe Bryant defends volume shooting ways
    Kobe Bryant defended his volume shooting after the Lakers blowout loss to the Warriors on Sunday.

    Advice: Bryant scored 44 points on 34 field goal attempts in just three quarters of action. "This responsibility, it's on me. When things go good, it's us. When things go bad, it's me." Kobe wants to get others involved, but his teammates, almost comically, just wait around and watch Kobe try to make something happen. Jeremy Lin and Carlos Boozer added the balance is currently off, but Kobe isn't being left many options given his underwhelming supporting cast. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:34 am
  • Kobe Bryant (illness) has 44 pts in ugly loss
    Kobe Bryant (illness) poured in a game-high 44 points on 15-of-34 FGs and 11-of-16 FTs in a futile effort vs. the Warriors on Sunday, adding five rebounds and three assists in just 31 minutes.

    Advice: Bryant shot a career-worst 1-of-14 from the field in L.A.'s last game, but on Sunday he played like vintage Black Mamba -- the problem is that his teammates didn't follow suit, and their team defense was atrocious. The impending return of Nick Young should ease Kobe's workload, which is good news for the 36-year-old Bryant's durability and FG percentage (currently a career-low 36.7 percent). Rotoworld.com
    Nov 16, 9:22 pm
  • Nick Young (thumb) expected to play Tuesday
    Nick Young (thumb) is expected to play on Tuesday, according to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell.

    Advice: Young made it through a full practice without any setbacks and his scoring ability is sorely needed by L.A., though they're in greater need of defense. Swaggy is the most likely Laker to finish second in scoring behind Kobe Bryant, but fantasy owners should anticipate low FG percentages as well as minimal assists, rebounds, steals or blocks.
