  • Chris Andersen returns, plays four minutes
    Chris Andersen returned on Wednesday with three points, one rebound and one assist in four minutes off Miami's bench.

    Advice: His lone make was a 3-pointer but this is a non-event for fantasy purposes -- the Birdman has played 17 minutes all season. Today, 12:05 am
  • Wes Johnson, Stephenson, Pierce all scoreless
    Wes Johnson was invisible despite starting on Wednesday, finishing scoreless with one rebound, three turnovers and zero assists, steals or blocks.

    Advice: Any positivity from Johnson's prior start was erased tonight and Doc Rivers is still searching for answers. The Clippers three options at small forward -- Johnson, Lance Stephenson and Paul Pierce -- combined for zero points on 0-of-5 shooting. Unless one of them demands the lion's share of minutes, all three are persona non grata in fantasy leagues. Yesterday, 11:35 pm
  • Neto has a good game vs. CP3
    Raul Neto had one of his best games of the season against the Clippers on Wednesday with 10 points, one rebound, six assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Trey Burke (back) suffered an injury tonight, so there were more minutes up for grabs. Neto has meshed pretty well with the other starters, but he's still going to lose point guard minutes to Alec Burks. Neto moves into the conversation for 20-team leagues while Burke is out. Yesterday, 11:27 pm
  • Wayne Ellington back from migraine Wednesday
    Wayne Ellington (migraine) played seven minutes during Wednesday's road loss, making a free throw to finish with one point, one rebound and one assist.

    Advice: The migraine kept Ellington from playing on Sunday but it's no longer an issue. What is an issue, at least for fantasy owners, is the fact that he's averaging 3.5 points on 32.7 percent shooting this season. Yesterday, 10:49 pm
  • Jon Leuer shines as primary center
    Jon Leuer was outstanding against the Pelicans on Wednesday with 20 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: He certainly didn't handle the defensive side of things with Anthony Davis going off, but Leuer is in a nice groove on offense. He's basically splitting the backup center job with Alex Len depending on the matchup. With Tyson Chandler (illness) likely back for the Warriors on Friday, Leuer is more of an 18-team stash. Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • T.J. Warren scores 18 points
    T.J. Warren scored 18 points on 8-of-13 from the field against the Pelicans on Wednesday with one rebound in 27 minutes.

    Advice: He was up to his usual tricks of cutting to the basket and getting easy looks. Unfortunately, Warren just doesn't do much else on the stat sheet outside of scoring, so he's not a particularly strong pickup in standard leagues. If you're in a points league, he's worth a look. Yesterday, 10:36 pm
  • Jeff Green scores 20 points
    Jeff Green kept it going on Wednesday against the Rockets with 20 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and no turnovers.

    Advice: It was a great matchup for him as the Rockets played right into his hands with some small-ball lineups. Green might be playing the best ball of his life right now and he's likely earned a consistent role even when Zach Randolph gets back. He's worth owning in standard leagues. Yesterday, 10:18 pm
  • Shane Larkin excels w/ Jack in foul trouble
    Shane Larkin had 10 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, six assists, one steal and two turnovers in 25 minutes vs. OKC on Wednesday.

    Advice: Jarrett Jack was in foul trouble, which shifted more playing time to Larkin, who came in averaging 17.5 minutes per game. He's been solid when given extended opportunities, but is restricted to deep-league appeal while Jack is healthy. Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Dion Waiters leads reserves with 16 points
    Dion Waiters led all Thunder reserves with 16 points on Wednesday, making 6-of-13 shots with two 3-pointers, three rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: Waiters also had one steal in 27 minutes and this constitutes an efficient game by his standards. He's averaging 10.5 points, 1.1 triples, 3.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.1 steals while coming off the bench this year, just enough to carve out late-round value. Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Marcus Thornton scores two points
    Marcus Thornton scored two points in 15 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: More importantly, he attempted his first free throws of the season after failing to do so in his first 316 minutes of the year. Your move, T.J. McConnell. Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • J.J. Barea (ankle) likely to miss time
    J.J. Barea (ankle) said he rolled his ankle "pretty good" on Wednesday.

    Advice: "I don't know the severity of it," coach Rick Carlisle said. "But he's in there with an ice machine on it. That's never good." It sounds like Barea is going to miss some time, which means more minutes are headed to Devin Harris and Raymond Felton. Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Patrick Beverley gets 19 minutes in return
    Patrick Beverley played 19 minutes in his return to the lineup on Wednesday, scoring four points with two rebounds, two assists and one turnover.

    Advice: It was hardly a good game, but this is a positive for Beverley because Ty Lawson is moving out of the rotation. After the holiday, Beverley should be considered as the favorite to start against the 76ers on Friday. Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Raymond Felton logs 37 minutes w/ Parsons out
    With Chandler Parsons resting on Wednesday, Raymond Felton filled in as a starter and posted five points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, five assists and one steal.

    Advice: He committed only one turnover in 37 minutes and the 11-year veteran continues to give the Mavs solid minutes when called upon. He's not a lock for value even when starting, however, and isn't a viable option while averaging 20-25 minutes in his typical reserve role. Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Devin Harris scores 11 points in return
    Devin Harris returned on Wednesday with 11 points, three boards and two turnovers before fouling out in 16 minutes vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: He shot 4-of-5 from the field, including one 3-pointer, and even played as a makeshift SF vs. Kawhi Leonard for stretches since Chandler Parsons (rest) was unavailable. He gets kudos for taking on that challenge, but remains a non-factor in all but the deepest fantasy leagues. Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • JaVale McGee logs 16 minutes vs. Mavericks
    JaVale McGee was back in action on Wednesday, posting nine points (4-of-8 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs) with six rebounds in 16 minutes of action.

    Advice: McGee didn't play on Tuesday, the first game of a back-to-back set, but he got the call early tonight with Zaza Pachulia mired in foul trouble. It's nice to see the eight-year veteran healthy and active, but his current role negates any potential fantasy value while Pachulia is around. Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • J.J. Barea (ankle) will not return
    J.J. Barea suffered sprained left ankle on Wednesday and will not return.

    Advice: He was in a lot of pain and it did not look good. Barea has been a useful combo guard and was playing 20.3 minutes per game, so the Mavs would miss him. If he's out, there would be more run for Ray Felton and Devin Harris. Justin Anderson or John Jenkins could slide into his rotation spot. Barea left the game with seven points, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer. There's really no need to make a speculative add unless you're in a deep league. Yesterday, 7:30 pm
  • Wes Johnson starting again on Wednesday
    Wes Johnson will start on Wednesday against the Jazz.

    Advice: Coach Doc Rivers wouldn't commit to it, but it makes the most sense. Expect Wes to not take many shots while playing minutes in the mid 20s. He's not worth owning in standard leagues. Yesterday, 7:06 pm
  • Raymond Felton starts w/ Parsons resting
    Raymond Felton will start Wednesday's game in place of Chandler Parsons.

    Advice: Felton has had a handful of nice games as a fill-in starter this year, but he gets a tough matchup vs. the Spurs' defense tonight. Parsons will return to action vs. the Nuggets on Saturday, so Felton's starting gig will once again be fleeting. Yesterday, 5:37 pm
  • Devin Harris (rest) back for Wednesday
    Devin Harris is playing on Wednesday.

    Advice: He should have his normal minutes and perhaps even more with Chandler Parsons (rest) out tonight. Yesterday, 5:15 pm
  • Pat Beverley says he's 'definitely playing'
    Pat Beverley (ankle) said he's "definitely playing" against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll be coming off the bench, but we still don't know if he's going to start after tonight. We'll have another update shortly, but expect Beverley to get minutes in the teens to low 20s tonight. Jason Terry will lose some run and maybe Ty Lawson, too. Yesterday, 3:57 pm
  • Pat Beverley (ankle) will be a game-time call
    Pat Beverley (ankle) is a game-time decision to face the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: Beverley is a tough guy and if it's up to him, he's playing. He has a decent chance to start tonight and has some value in deeper leagues. Jason Terry would play less and possibly Ty Lawson. Yesterday, 3:21 pm
  • Rivers won't commit to Johnson as starter
    Despite the fact that the Clippers snapped a three-game losing streak with Wes Johnson as the starting small forward, Doc Rivers would not commit to keeping him in the starting five long-term.

    Advice: "That lineup is a lineup that I'm going to keep moving, depending on guys," Rivers said. "I like Wes the most because of his size and his ability to shoot, but there's nights where you play a great offensive player at that spot and we may go with a defensive guy. We're going to just keep moving it around." Lance Stephenson, Paul Pierce and Johnson are going to continue subbing in-and-out of the starting five for the foreseeable future, making it tough to own any of these guys in most leagues. Yesterday, 9:54 am
  • Beverley (ankle) goes through shootaround
    Patrick Beverley (ankle) was a full participant during shootaround, but he remains questionable for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Beverley seems on track to make his return on Wednesday, but he's going to come off the bench and his minutes will be monitored, making him an unattractive option in most leagues. Beverley could conceivably start for the Rockets at some point, but he's likely headed for a three-way timeshare with Jason Terry and Ty Lawson; meaning at best he could only be viewed as a steals and 3-point specialist in deep leagues. Yesterday, 9:14 am
  • Patrick Beverley's minutes will be monitored
    Interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that he will monitor Patrick Beverley's (ankle) minutes upon his return.

    Advice: Beverley is questionable to play Wednesday against the Grizzlies, but if he does get on to the court following a five-game absence, he will continue to come off the bench and Bickerstaff will be cautious with his minutes. Bickerstaff said he likes the leadership that Jason Terry brings, which is why Terry will continue to start, and it's looking like this could turn into a three-way timeshare at the point guard slot in Houston between JET, Ty Lawson and Beverley; which isn't great from a fantasy standpoint. Yesterday, 7:43 am
  • Wes Johnson scores 11 points in start Tues
    Wes Johnson scored 11 points in a start at small forward on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets, adding two boards, one assist, one block and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: He probably would have seen a few extra minutes if he didn't get into foul trouble, but it was an encouraging game for Johnson and it's possible that he could stick in the starting lineup. Paul Pierce hasn't been playing well and Lance Stephenson is still Lance Stephenson, so feel free to take a flier on Johnson if you're in a deep league. Tuesday, 8:56 pm
  • Jeff Green scores 19 points in win over Mavs
    Jeff Green hit 8-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 19 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two blocks in Tuesday's win over the Mavs.

    Advice: After scoring 20-plus points in two straight games, Green had scored a total of just 13 points in his last two games, despite the absence of Zach Randolph (knee). He looked good tonight and is worth owning in all leagues as long as he's starting at SF for the Grizzlies. Tuesday, 7:58 pm
  • Raymond Felton scores 16 off Mavs' bench
    Raymond Felton hit 5-of-8 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 24 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Devin Harris got the night off for rest and Deron Williams was benched in the fourth quarter with the score out of hand. This was just his fifth game in double-digit scoring this season, so as long as Williams, Harris and J.J. Barea are healthy, Felton will have a tough time doing things like this consistently. Tuesday, 7:53 pm
  • J.J. Barea scores 16 off Mavs' bench
    J.J. Barea played 27 minutes off the Mavs' bench and hit 5-of-10 shots and zero 3-pointers for 16 points and four assists in Tuesday's loss to Memphis.

    Advice: The minutes and points were a season high for JJB, who got run down the stretch in a blowout. It didn't hurt that Devin Harris got the night off, either, but Barea will have to perform like this more consistently to be owned in most leagues. Tuesday, 7:50 pm
  • Wes Johnson will start, Paul Pierce to bench
    Wes Johnson will start on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets with Paul Pierce moving to the bench.

    Advice: The Clippers haven't gotten a lot of production out of Pierce or Lance Stephenson, so it will be interesting to see if Johnson can build some momentum. Johnson's minutes will still be relatively low with the starters, so owners in deeper leagues can use a wait-and-see approach. Tuesday, 5:22 pm
  • Devin Harris (rest) will not play on Tuesday
    Devin Harris (rest) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: He isn't dealing with an injury and this is just a scheduled rest day, but he probably wasn't owned in most leagues anyways. Harris is averaging 22.4 minutes per game this season, so expect J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton to see a few more minutes on Tuesday. Tuesday, 4:33 pm
  • Patrick Beverley (ankle) practices on Tuesday
    Patrick Beverley (ankle) practiced on Tuesday, and has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Beverley is on track to play Wednesday, although interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that Jason Terry will still be the starting point guard upon Beverley's return. JET as the starting point is not a trend that's likely to continue once Beverley is fully up to speed, but this is very bad news for Ty Lawson owners as his minutes will head even further south with Patrick active. Beverley won't score a lot of points, but he should be able to do enough with steals and 3-pointers to warrant a roster spot in deeper leagues. Tuesday, 12:13 pm
  • T.J. Warren scores 16 off bench
    T.J. Warren made 7-of-15 from the field for 16 points against the Spurs on Monday with three rebounds, two assists and one block in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He had a terrific game and had a career high in field goal attempts. Warren is usually depending on his guards to get him the ball, but he was able to score on his own -- a big part of his game at Summer League. Warren's upside isn't quite worth keeping on a standard-league roster and he'll likely need P.J. Tucker to miss time to gain enough value to be added. Monday, 10:46 pm
  • Dion Waiters plays well in return to bench
    Dion Waiters returned to the bench on Monday against the Jazz, but he played well with 12 points, six assists, three boards, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Garbage time was definitely a factor here, and it's hard to imagine Waiters staying relevant with Kevin Durant back in the lineup. Unless you're in a deep league, there's no real reason to own Waiters. Monday, 9:31 pm
  • Dion Waiters will return to the bench Monday
    Dion Waiters will return to the bench for Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Kevin Durant is back from his hamstring injury, so this is an expected move. Waiters has averaged just 10.3 points per game in a bench role this season, so he's safe to drop in most leagues. Monday, 5:21 pm
  • Chris Andersen (personal) will be active Mon
    Chris Andersen (personal) will be active for Monday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: This will be the second straight game that he has been active, but he may not touch the floor. Leave him on the wire. Monday, 3:49 pm
  • Pat Beverley up in the air for Wednesday
    Pat Beverley (ankle) will go through practice on Tuesday and coach B.J. Bickerstaff said "we'll see" regarding his status for Wednesday.

    Advice: The Rockets rested Beverley on Monday after they gave him extra work on Sunday. Beverley will likely be in the starting lineup and should find minutes in the mid 20s. He's worth a look in 14-team leagues. Monday, 12:46 pm
  • Pat Beverley (ankle) doesn't practice Monday
    Patrick Beverley (ankle) did not practice on Monday.

    Advice: He was on track to practice today, so perhaps he won't be able to play on Wednesday. Beverley is likely going to start for the Rockets and he could have value in 14-team leagues off the bat. If you need steals or treys, give him a look. Monday, 11:38 am
  • Carlisle says McGee to be worked in gradually
    Rick Carlisle said JaVale McGee will be worked back into action "gradually."

    Advice: It felt good. It felt real good," McGee said when asked about his debut. "It felt great, but I was really worried about my wind more than anything. I wasn’t even worried about scoring. I was worried about if all the work I’ve been doing is helping and getting me in shape. Everything held up good." It's a positive first step for JaVale, but he's a long way from getting back onto the fantasy radar. Monday, 8:25 am
  • JaVale McGee plays well in season debut
    JaVale McGee made his season debut on Sunday and had eight points on 4-of-5 shooting with six rebounds in only 11 minutes.

    Advice: He was surprisingly effective considering he hadn't played since March 1, 2015. The low playing time isn't likely to budge in the near future, especially with Zaza Pachulia playing exceptionally well, and McGee should stay on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Sunday, 6:48 pm
  • T.J. Warren hits three 3-pointers off bench
    T.J. Warren got hot from downtown vs. the Pelicans, scoring nine points with three 3-pointers and two rebounds in 21 minutes of action.

    Advice: He had four 3-pointers all season prior to this outburst, which came against a New Orleans defense that has allowed opponents to shoot a league-high 40.1 percent from deep this year. Warren has been solid offensively all season, shooting 52.1 percent from the field, but he's chipping in a mere 3.4 rebounds, 0.5 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.1 blocks. He's a deep-league option until the supporting stats increase. Sunday, 6:06 pm
  • JaVale McGee (leg) will be active on Sunday
    JaVale McGee (leg) will be active for the first time this season on Sunday against the Thunder.

    Advice: To be clear, this doesn't mean that McGee will see the floor, but it's encouraging to see that he is finally healthy enough to play. McGee has only been cleared to play very limited minutes early on, so he isn't on the fantasy radar at the moment. Sunday, 3:19 pm
  • Wayne Ellington (illness) questionable Sunday
    Wayne Ellington (illness) is questionable to play against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: Ellington is dealing with a migraine, but the issue wasn't reported until a few minutes before tip-off. He is averaging just 13.8 minutes per game this season, so he probably won't upset too many fantasy owners. For what it's worth, Ellington wasn't on the bench when the game started. Sunday, 3:06 pm
  • Jeff Green (head) returns to game Saturday
    Jeff Green (head) returned to Saturday's game against the Spurs after briefly going to the locker room.

    Advice: Green collided with Tony Allen and was visibly shaken up, but it's very encouraging to see him back in the game so quickly. He finished with six points, seven rebounds one assist and one steal in 28 minutes. Saturday, 7:10 pm
  • Jeff Green (head) leaves game on Saturday
    Jeff Green (head) left Saturday's game against the Spurs after colliding with Tony Allen and his return is uncertain.

    Advice: It was a head-to-head collision and Green looked like he was in a lot of pain, so we'd be surprised if he was able to return. He will likely be evaluated for a concussion in the locker room, so we should have another update momentarily. Saturday, 7:02 pm
  • Patrick Beverley (ankle) targeting Wednesday
    Patrick Beverley (ankle) is on track to practice on Monday and is targeting Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies for his return.

    Advice: Beverley suffered the ankle injury on Nov. 13 and hasn't played since, so this great news for the Rockets. Ty Lawson was recently demoted to the bench because of poor play and Jason Terry has been running the point in the first unit, but Beverley could very well be starting when he gets back. Saturday, 3:31 pm
  • Chris Andersen (personal) returns to Heat
    Chris Andersen (personal) has returned to the Heat and will be available for Saturday's game against the 76ers.

    Advice: Andersen has a very limited role off the bench, so it's not a guarantee that he will see the floor tonight. He is not on the fantasy radar. Saturday, 8:55 am
  • T.J. Warren play just 11 minutes in return
    T.J. Warren returned from a one-game absence on Friday with no points and two assists in 11 minutes.

    Advice: The Suns focused on the 3-pointer tonight, which isn't Warren's forte. He should be looking at more minutes going forward, but his upside isn't quite high enough to own in standard leagues. Friday, 11:57 pm
  • Jeff Green scores just seven points in start
    Jeff Green couldn't keep the hot streak going during Friday's win over Houston, scoring just seven points on 2-of-9 shooting to go with six boards, one 3-pointer, one assist, two steals and one block through 29 minutes.

    Advice: Green is consistently inconsistent, which is a great hindrance to his fantasy value. He was rolling up to this point, averaging 18.3 points, 4.7 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 three-pointer and 1.3 steals over his last three, but those numbers obviously weren't sustainable. He's worth owning as a low-end asset in deep leagues, but with a lengthy history of inconsistency, he's not a great option in standard formats. Friday, 10:20 pm
  • Dion Waiters scores 16 points
    Dion Waiters scored 16 points against the Knicks on Friday with four rebounds, one assist, three steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: In true Waiters fashion, he was 6-of-15 from the field. Even with the poor shooting, he should have a chance to put up decent numbers in the starting lineup. If you need scoring in an deep league until Kevin Durant (hamstring) is back, give Waiters a look. Friday, 10:13 pm
  • Dion Waiters starting on Friday night
    Dion Waiters will start on Friday night against the Knicks.

    Advice: He'll push Anthony Morrow to the bench tonight and should see big minutes. There's always a lot of risk in using Waiters because he could go 0-of-15, but he has some upside tonight. Friday, 4:54 pm
  • Pat Beverley (ankle) still out for Friday
    Patrick Beverley (ankle) will not play on Friday against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: The Rockets will have to go with Jason Terry and Ty Lawson at the point guard spot for a little longer. Beverley has no timetable to return and isn't worth stashing due to a lower upside. Friday, 11:20 am
  • Chris Andersen is 'making his way back'
    Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said that Chris Andersen (excused personal absence) is "making his way back."

    Advice: Andersen is expected to be available for Saturday's game against Philly, but he isn't in the rotation right now and might not see the floor. You can safely leave him on the wire. Friday, 10:45 am
  • Chris Andersen (personal) out Thursday
    Chris Andersen (personal) will not play Thursday against the Kings.

    Advice: Andersen is away from the team tending to a personal matter on an excused absence, but head coach Erik Spoelstra anticipates him rejoining Miami in time for Saturday's tilt against the 76ers. The Birdman is averaging just six minutes per game this season, and is not worth owning in any league. Thursday, 2:55 pm
  • T.J. Warren (illness) will play on Friday
    T.J. Warren (illness) will return from a one-game absence for Friday's game against the Nuggets.

    Advice: With Warren back in action, P.J. Tucker's minutes will return to the mid-20s which isn't enough time for him to produce statistics worthy of ownership in standard leagues. Warren was rolling before missing Wednesday's game, averaging 15.0 points, 4.0 boards and 1.3 steals on 63.3 percent shooting over his last four, so he's worth a look in deep leagues. Thursday, 1:12 pm
  • Dion Waiters struggles, blows wide open layup
    Dion Waiters played 31 minutes vs. the Pelicans but scored only four points on 2-of-10 shooting with four rebounds, two assists and one steal.

    Advice: Waiters missed a wide open layup in the first quarter (you can witness it via the link below), at which point ESPN Stats & Info reported that he'd missed more layups (14) than he'd made (13) this season. Stunning. He's been hit-or-miss even with Kevin Durant on the sidelines, and standard-league owners should have better options on the waiver wire. Wednesday, 8:41 pm
  • Shane Larkin hands out six dimes in road loss
    Shane Larkin dished out six assists to go along with six points and one steal in 20 minutes vs. the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He had a career-high-tying eight dimes on opening night but has been quiet ever since, and we're not reading into tonight's solid performance. He's not worth owning while averaging 15-18 minutes behind Jarrett Jack. Wednesday, 7:13 pm
  • T.J. Warren out for Wednesday night
    T.J. Warren (illness) will not play against the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Advice: That would mean more minutes would go to P.J. Tucker. Archie Goodwin has also played a handful of three, so he'll be looking at more minutes, too. Warren was playing really well, so this is a tough blow for his fantasy owners. Wednesday, 5:51 pm
  • T.J. Warren (illness) questionable Wednesday
    T.J. Warren (illness) was not present during Wednesday morning's shootaround, and he is questionable to play vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: If Warren is forced to sit out Wednesday's game, P.J. Tucker's minutes would likely climb to the 30s, and he'd be someone to consider deploying as a punt play in DFS. Stay tuned. Wednesday, 10:41 am
  • Shane Larkin scores 14 in 14 minutes
    Shane Larkin scored 14 points in 14 minutes against the Hawks on Tuesday with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: His minutes have just been hanging around 20 as he backs up Jarrett Jack. Larkin has clearly pulled ahead for the backup point guard job, so he would likely be worth a look if Jack needed to miss time. He's only a handcuff in 20-team leagues. Tuesday, 8:47 pm
  • T.J. Warren scores career-high 19 points
    T.J. Warren scored a career-high 19 points against the Lakers on Monday, adding four rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes.

    Advice: He was 9-of-13 from the field with nine of his shots coming in the paint. The Suns haven't really played him or P.J. Tucker at the four sans Markieff Morris and they split the minutes at the three tonight. Warren has been remarkably efficient in his last four with a 23.3 usage rate and a 69.8 true shooting percentage, averaging 15.5 points, 3.5 boards, 1.0 steals and 0.3 blocks. His upside isn't quite strong enough to grab in standard leagues, but he's certainly worth a look. Monday, 10:37 pm
  • Jeff Green scores 20 points vs. OKC
    Jeff Green had a nice revenge game against the Thunder on Monday with 20 points, five rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: After a goose egg on Nov. 11, Green has really picked it up. In his last three, he's averaged 18.3 points, 4.7 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 treys. He's also played at least 30 minutes in all of those games. Green isn't really a high-upside guy, so he's not a terrific grab. That said, if you want to grab him and see if he can keep it going, it's not a bad idea. Monday, 9:13 pm
  • Dion Waiters scores 14 points off bench
    Dion Waiters played 38 minutes against the Grizzlies on Monday with 14 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: With Andre Roberson (illness) out tonight, Waiters had a little extra playing time. He's put up some decent stats in his last five, averaging 15.8 points, 2.8 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys. Waiters will lose some value once Kevin Durant (hamstring) returns, which could be as soon as this weekend. Monday, 8:45 pm
  • JaVale McGee remains without a timetable
    JaVale McGee (leg) is still without a timetable to return.

    Advice: McGee is not even taking contact yet, so we're considering him "out indefinitely" until there is an actual update on his health. Monday, 10:36 am
  • Joerger praises Jeff Green after Sunday start
    Coach Dave Joerger praised Jeff Green's play in Sunday's win over the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Green had 21 points on 7-of-12 from the floor, including 6-of-6 from the foul line, to go along with four rebounds, three assists and a triple in 35 minutes as the starter. "We were aggressive going to the paint, which was good. Once we got in the paint, we didn’t settle and Jeff Green was big with that," Joerger said. The head coach said he wanted "some more size" in a matchup vs. Andrew Wiggins, so Green could be ticketed back to the bench as soon as Monday vs. his former Thunder team. Monday, 7:06 am
  • Dion Waiters denies Philadelphia 76ers report
    Dion Waiters denied a report that he'd be interested in playing for the Sixers.

    Advice: Because who would admit that publicly, right? "[Don't] Believe everything y'all hear lol I guess this what the world coming to (shaking my head), especially if it didn't come from me," Waiters tweeted. In two games since Kevin Durant's hamstring injury, Waiters is averaging 10.5 points and a 3-pointer in 29 minutes per game. Monday, 6:56 am
