  • Nene says he 'definitely' won't play Saturday
    Nene (left calf) said that he will "definitely" will sit out Saturday's game against the Raptors.

    Advice: He added that it would be "impossible" for him to play after suffering a left calf injury during Friday's loss to Boston, and it'll likely be Jared Dudley (who logged 30 minutes on Friday) picking up the most minutes with Nene on the shelf. Dudley had himself a nice game on Friday with 19 points, five boards, two swats and three treys, so he's worth considering as a punt play in DFS on Saturday. Today, 1:12 am
  • Markieff Morris plays just 17 mins in blowout
    Markieff Morris played just 17 minutes during Friday's blowout loss to the Warriors, tallying 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting to go with three boards, one assist, two 3-pointers, one steal and four turnovers.

    Advice: It's been an up-and-down season for Kieff, and while he's currently earning a career-high usage rate of 26.1, that just hasn't been translating to the stat sheet like it should. While tonight's dud can largely be attributed to the stellar defense of Draymond Green, Morris is still only putting up late-round value on the year behind averages of 13.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 0.9 three-pointers per game on 40.5 percent shooting. Morris might not want to play in Phoenix, but it's tough to see him getting this much opportunity in another city. Today, 12:58 am
  • Tyson Chandler suffers hamstring injury Fri
    Tyson Chandler left Friday's game against the Warriors at the four-minute mark after suffering a hamstring injury, and did not return.

    Advice: This game was pretty much over after the first-quarter, so Chandler had no reason to fight through the injury. Jon Leuer started the second-half with Chandler sidelined, but he went scoreless through his 11 minutes of action to go with just five rebounds, one assist, two steals and two turnovers. Alex Len wasn't much better, recording just two points, four boards and a steal in his nine minutes of playing time. Because hamstring injuries can be tricky, we're going to consider Chandler questionable for Sunday's game against the Raptors, and if he can't go, Len, Leuer and Mirza Teletovic will benefit. Today, 12:48 am
  • Gorgui Dieng gets minutes again
    Gorgui Dieng played 27 minutes against the Kings on Friday with eight points, eight boards, two assists and two steals.

    Advice: Even though his minutes have really spiked in his last three games, he hasn't played a second next to Karl-Anthony Towns in that span. In his last three, Dieng averaged 10.0 points, 7.7 boards, 1.7 blocks and 27.3 minutes. If you think the Towns' benching is going to continue, give him a look in any league. That seems unlikely, though. Today, 12:33 am
  • Karl-Anthony Towns gets benched late again
    Karl-Anthony Towns played just 21 minutes on Friday with seven points, eight rebounds, two blocks, one 3-pointer and no fouls.

    Advice: He played a whopping 17 minutes with the starters, so beginning each half was basically it once he came out. He hasn't been fouling and for some reason coach Sam Mitchell hasn't been playing his prized rookie down the stretch. He's way too good for his owners to be concerned. Today, 12:26 am
  • Kosta Koufos has another dub-dub
    Kosta Koufos double-doubled against the Wolves on Friday with 16 points, 13 rebounds, one steal and one block in 30 minutes.

    Advice: He's created plenty of separation from Willie Cauley-Stein and Koufos could hold some value while DeMarcus Cousins (back) is healthy too. If you need a center, give him a look. Trill had six points and three rebounds in 25 minutes. Today, 12:20 am
  • Andrew Bogut (back) plays just 13 minutes
    Andrew Bogut (back) was only needed for 13 minutes during the Warriors blowout victory over the Suns on Friday, and he finished the game with seven points, two assists, two boards and two blocks.

    Advice: Phoenix's Tyson Chandler left the game during the first-quarter with a hamstring injury, and it was basically all small ball from there. Bogut is nursing a stiff back, so Luke Walton decided to give his big man some extra rest in what amounted to an easy victory for the Dubs. Owners of Bogut can plan on having him active on Saturday for a matchup with the Kings, and if DeMarcus Cousins (back) is able to play, you can expect more minutes to fall to Bogut. Yesterday, 11:53 pm
  • Mike Muscala has a nice line off bench
    Mike Muscala stepped up off the bench on Friday with 11 points, six boards, two assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Al Horford was in a bit of foul trouble and Muscala was able to have success at the center spot. With Tiago Splitter (hip) out indefinitely, Muscala could have some value in 18-team leagues. Yesterday, 11:45 pm
  • Serge Ibaka makes 7-of-8 from field
    Serge Ibaka made 7-of-8 from the field for 14 points against the Pistons on Friday with four rebounds and four blocks in 32 minutes.

    Advice: That's a tidy line right there and further proof that Ibaka is just better when Kevin Durant is on the floor. Ibaka has 10 blocks in his last three games and still has just fifth-round value on the year, so he is a decent buy-low player with KD looking like he's all world again. Yesterday, 11:14 pm
  • Steven Adams keeps Drummond off glass
    Steven Adams scored eight points with 13 rebounds, one assist and one block in 28 minutes against the Pistons on Friday.

    Advice: If the NBA gave a rebounder of the night award, it should probably go to Adams, who helped keep Andre Drummond under 10 boards for the first time all season. He's still just inside of the top 150 for the season in standard leagues, so he's not a terrific add. Yesterday, 11:10 pm
  • Andre Drummond grabs just seven boards
    Andre Drummond grabbed a season-low seven boards against the Thunder on Friday with 15 points, two assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

    Advice: It's the first game of the season without double-digit boards and he dropped his season average 0.7 per game to just 17.1 now. OKC is first in the NBA in rebounding rate on the season Drummond gets one of the better rebounding teams in the NBA on Sunday in Brooklyn -- the Nets are top four in rebounding rate in the last 10 games. Yesterday, 11:02 pm
  • Nikola Jokic limited by foul trouble in loss
    Foul trouble limited Nikola Jokic to just 12 minutes during Friday's loss to the Spurs, and he finished the game with a measly six points, two boards and three turnovers.

    Advice: Foul trouble has been an issue for the rookie, but he's coming off two solid outings and given the current direction of the Nuggets franchise, it makes sense to continue giving Jokic minutes. Joffrey Lauvergne (back) was available to play tonight, but he didn't even leave the bench, and Jusuf Nurkic (knee) is still at least 3-4 weeks away from returning to the court. This situation could get complicated once everyone is healthy, but for now, Jokic is the center to own in Denver. Yesterday, 10:37 pm
  • Clint Capela starts, looks good
    Clint Capela got his first start at power forward on Friday against the 76ers, scoring 13 points with 10 rebounds, two blocks and two turnovers.

    Advice: He played 25 minutes and looked great next to Dwight Howard. This does come against the 76ers, so it's hard to put too much stock into his performance. Capela has been worth owning in standard leagues to this point, so the new mysterious upside makes him worth a look in almost all formats. Plus,his value would go up on the nights Dwight Howard misses games. Yesterday, 10:32 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor scores 11 in start
    Jahlil Okafor scored 11 points during a 116-114 loss to the Rockets on Friday, adding six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover.

    Advice: The team disciplined him internally for his off-court altercation, so he should be in the clear. Also regarding the incident, a heckler reportedly pointed a gun at Okafor. Additionally, this was not the first time Okafor has been in an altercation with a heckler. There are more details in the link below. Yesterday, 10:24 pm
  • Boban Marjanovic plays six minutes in start
    Boban Marjanovic played just six minutes during his first career-start on Friday, finishing with two points, four boards and an assist.

    Advice: Marjanovic's two points came from the line, and this is a pretty clear indication that even as a starter he has no value. He was replaced in the starting lineup by Boris Diaw to begin the second-half, and Diaw finished with six points, five boards, two assists and one turnover in his 23 minutes of action. Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge plays just 18 minutes
    LaMarcus Aldridge played just 18 minutes during Friday's win over the Nuggets, finishing the game with just eight points on 4-of-11 shooting to go with four boards, one assist, one block and one turnover.

    Advice: Aldridge is currently putting up just late-middle round value on the year behind averages of 15.5 points, 9.7 boards, 1.8 assists and 0.9 blocks per game on 43.3 percent shooting from the field and 84.9 percent from the stripe. His usage rate (25.6) has taken a pretty big hit with the move to San Antonio, and this is basically who he is going to be playing in the Spurs' selfless system. Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Lavoy Allen has nice effort off bench
    Lavoy Allen scored 12 points off the bench in 27 minutes against the Bulls on Friday, adding 10 rebounds and two blocks.

    Advice: He picked up some extra run with Jordan Hill (back) out tonight. Myles Turner (hand) is out and Hill has numerous back injuries in his career, so Allen could have some extra playing time headed his way. He's a low upside player most nights, so he's only a short-term add in deeper leagues. Yesterday, 9:38 pm
  • Anthony Davis diagnosed with knee contusion
    Anthony Davis has been diagnosed with a right knee contusion, and he is questionable to return to Friday's game against the Clippers.

    Advice: This news can be seen as a positive given that Davis needed to be carried off the court, and the Pelicans medical staff is saying that he did not suffer any structural damage with the injury. He's probably not going to return to Friday's game with the Clippers currently blowing out the Pelicans, but he has returned to the New Orleans bench and is walking under his own power. For now, we're going to consider him on the doubtful side of questionable for Saturday's game against the Jazz. Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Anthony Davis (leg) carried to locker room
    Anthony Davis suffered a right leg injury and had to be carried to the locker room.

    Advice: Oh no. He had some contact with Chris Paul and it looked like a contact injury as CP3 got him from the side. Davis also had a right leg injury earlier in this game and the team will likely evaluate him further. He left the game with 17 points, six boards and three turnovers. He needs to be OK, but we would consider him doubtful to play against the Jazz on Saturday. Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside blocks six more shots
    Hassan Whiteside blocked six shots during a 97-78 win over the Knicks on Friday, adding six points and 14 rebounds in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He is blocking everything these days. Whiteside upped his season average to 4.8 blocks per game with 14.0 points, 11.4 boards, 0.7 steals and 2.1 turnovers. Whiteside's rim protection has improved in a big way and that's part of the season why Miami has been such tough fantasy matchup in DFS. He has first-round value in standard leagues right now. Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Robin Lopez gets benched
    Robin Lopez played 14 minutes against the Heat on Friday with two points, four rebounds and one assist.

    Advice: Coach Derek Fisher pulled Lopez because the team needed some offense in the second half, so that explains the low playing time. Passes from the coach aside, Lopez has just 15th-round value on the season, so he's certainly not someone fantasy owners should be clinging to at this point. Yesterday, 8:43 pm
  • Marcin Gortat stinks vs. Boston
    Marcin Gortat had a rough night against the Celtics on Friday, making 1-of-8 from the field for four points with nine rebounds, four assists and three turnovers.

    Advice: He missed a lot of close-range shots tonight and apologized for his poor play. "We are getting paid a lot of money to play better, not the BS that we're showing out there right now," Gortat said. With Nene (calf) out, expect Gortat to get more run and should have added value. Yesterday, 8:00 pm
  • Kevin Love goes off, gets benched late
    Kevin Love scored 18 points with 16 rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

    Advice: He was benched in the fourth quarter because coach David Blatt liked the feel of a different lineup. Love is obviously fine and is on fire in his last six games. Over his previous five, he averaged 24.8 points, 11.4 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.6 blocks and 3.2 treys on 53.2 percent from the field. He had a minor knee issue, but he's fine. Yesterday, 7:51 pm
  • Tyson Chandler exits game w/ hamstring strain
    Tyson Chandler left Friday's game against the Warriors after tweaking his right hamstring, and he is questionable to return.

    Advice: Chandler limped off the court after a timeout, and it's going to be very tough for the Suns to upset the Dubs sans Tyson. We'll have another update shortly, but Alex Len will benefit if Chandler is forced into an extended absence. Stay tuned. Yesterday, 7:04 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic plays just 24 minutes
    Nikola Vucevic played just 21 minutes against the Bucks on Friday with nine points, six boards, one assist, one steal and one block.

    Advice: While garbage time was a factor here, Vucevic's minutes were down in the first half with just 12 minutes. He's on a very tight leash with coach Scott Skiles right now, but he's still coming off a big 22-point game from Wednesday. He probably won't have much consistency, but Vooch is still a high-end fantasy big man. He'll look to rebound in a plus matchup on Sunday against the Celtics. Yesterday, 6:56 pm
  • Andrew Bogut (back) will play Friday vs. PHX
    Andrew Bogut (back) will play Friday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Bogut sat out Wednesday's practice with a stiff back, but he'll be on the court tonight and should get his usual minutes in the low-20s. With so many games being played tonight, owners in standard leagues could probably do better than Bogut. Yesterday, 5:20 pm
  • Nene goes to the locker room vs. Boston
    Nene is dealing with a left calf strain and will not return on Friday.

    Advice: He limped to the locker room under his own power and there wasn't a trainer by his side. Nene is not the most durable guy, so he could miss time here. If he's out, DeJuan Blair and Drew Gooden could play. This also helps Marcin Gortat's value. Yesterday, 5:00 pm
  • Boban Marjanovic will start Friday vs. Denver
    Boban Marjanovic will enter the starting five for Friday's game agains the Nuggets with Tim Duncan (rest) unavailable.

    Advice: The enormous 7-foot-3 center will draw his first career-start tonight, and it'll be interesting to see what the big man (who is averaging just 3.1 minutes per game) can do in extended minutes. He's at the very least worth considering as a punt play in DFS, but with Duncan set to return for Saturday's home game against the Hawks, Boban can remain unowned in season-long leagues. Yesterday, 4:55 pm
  • Clint Capela will start Friday vs. the 76ers
    Clint Capela will replace Terrence Jones in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the 76ers.

    Advice: Capela has been pretty good as a starter this season with averages of 11.0 points, 9.6 boards and 1.6 blocks per contest. He'll get a favorable matchup against the 76ers tonight, and is worth considering as a punt play in DFS. Yesterday, 4:42 pm
  • Kenneth Faried (ankle) out for Friday night
    Kenneth Faried (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: Well, that'll be his third missed game after playing through some apparent ankle tweak from Friday. Faried doesn't have a timetable to return in one of the stranger injuries of the season. It'll be Darrell Arthur likely starting while we could see lineups of Nikola Jokic and Joffrey Lauvergne playing together, too. Danilo Gallinarli should play a lot of stretch four. Yesterday, 4:23 pm
  • Tiago Splitter (hip) in 'considerable' pain
    Tiago Splitter (hip) won't play on Friday and said that he still has "considerable" pain.

    Advice: It doesn't sound as though Splitter is close to returning, in other words, so we're not expecting to see him play vs. the Spurs on Saturday. His absence thrusts more minutes toward Mike Muscala, with Mike Scott also earning extra playing time off the bench. Yesterday, 3:57 pm
  • Police investigating Jahlil Okafor fight
    Boston police are now investigating an incident on Friday during which Jahlil Okafor punched a heckler outside of a club.

    Advice: An man filed a report stating that he was the victim of assault and battery, and that he required stitches after being punched in the eye by Okafor. The incident was caught on tape and Okafor has admitted wrongdoing, saying, "It was definitely dumb on my part. It's something that I am embarrassed about." Okafor will play on Friday but at some point he's likely to face a suspension from the 76ers and/or the league. Yesterday, 3:22 pm
  • Tyson Chandler will return to starting lineup
    Tyson Chandler (illness) will return to the starting lineup on Friday against the Warriors.

    Advice: He missed Wednesday due to an illness. Chandler will have a tall task ahead of him with the Warriors offense coming to town tonight. His return means less minutes for Alex Len and Jon Leuer. Chandler isn't a must-own player in standard leagues anymore. Yesterday, 1:47 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor will play vs. Houston on Friday
    Jahlil Okafor will play vs. the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: Okafor got into an altercation with a heckler outside of a Boston Bar on Wednesday, but it sounds like the Boston Police will not investigate the issue. Head coach Brett Brown said that the 76ers will look into it and that he will be punished, but he said the issue will be handled internally. For now, his owners can go ahead and keep him active in all lineups. The 76ers are 0-16 this season. Yesterday, 10:29 am
  • Kenneth Faried (ankle) will be a game-time call
    Kenneth Faried (ankle) made it through shootaround and will be a game-time call vs. the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: Interesting. Faried was originally ruled out for Friday's contest, but his ankle must be improving and it sounds like he has a legitimate shot to play. Joffrey Lauvergne (back) is expected to return on Friday, so it will be interesting to see if promising rookie Nikola Jokic loses any minutes. Darrell Arthur, who has been starting in Faried's absence, will likely shift to the bench if the Manimal can play. Yesterday, 10:25 am
  • Tiago Splitter (hip) ruled out Friday vs. MEM
    Tiago Splitter (hip) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: It'll be Splitter's third consecutive game on the sidelines, and it's unclear exactly when he'll be back on the court. Mike Scott and Mike Muscala will pick up some additional playing time with Splitter out, but not enough to make an impact in most leagues. Thursday, 3:14 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor knocks out heckler outside club
    Jahlil Okafor got into an altercation with a heckler outside of a Boston bar on Wednesday night.

    Advice: The incident is on video (link below), and ends with Okafor punching the heckler in the face, knocking him out cold. Representatives of Okafor said that he and an unnamed teammate were being heckled from the moment they left the club, and someone reportedly got physical with the unnamed Sixer so Jahlil did what he "felt he needed to do to protect himself and his friends." No arrests were made, although Okafor has likely earned himself a suspension from the league. The 76ers say that they are aware of the reported incident, and are currently working on gathering additional information. Happy Thanksgiving. Thursday, 12:26 pm
  • Kenneth Faried out Friday vs Spurs
    Kenneth Faried (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: Faried will miss his third consecutive game on Friday due to his ankle injury. Nikola Jokic and Darrell Arthur make for solid DFS plays on Friday, as both should see big minutes in Faried's absence. Thursday, 10:27 am
  • Anthony Davis feasts in Phoenix with 26 & 17
    Anthony Davis made 11-of-14 from the field for 26 points against the Suns during a 120-114 win on Wednesday, adding 17 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Now this is the guy fantasy owners took first in drafts. Since his return from a hip injury, Davis averaged 26.0 points, 18.0 boards, 1.3 steals, 2.7 blocks and 0.3 treys on 52.5 percent from the field and 78.9 percent from the line in those three games. He is dominating around the rim on both ends and he just needs to stay healthy. Wednesday, 11:23 pm
  • Markieff Morris scores just eight points
    Markieff Morris scored eight points against the Pelicans on Wednesday with eight rebounds, three assists and one block.

    Advice: He only attempted 4-of-11 from the field. Morris had his best outing of the season while Eric Bledsoe was out in his last game, so perhaps that caused the sudden rise after basically a season-long slump. Still, he is worth owning in standard leagues. Wednesday, 10:38 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) w/ 18 pts in return
    LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) scored 18 points with seven rebounds, one assist and one block on Wednesday, making 8-of-17 shots in 35 minutes of action.

    Advice: Aldridge had missed two games but he didn't skip a beat tonight, helping the Spurs earn their third straight win. LA has six double-doubles, and he's scored double-digit points in all but one game this season, but his 15.3 points per game are way down from the 23.4 he averaged with Portland last season. It's the new normal now that he's a selfless Spur. Wednesday, 9:19 pm
  • Kosta Koufos has nice game filling in
    Kosta Koufos was terrific in the starting lineup against the Bucks on Wednesday with 14 points, nine rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 35 minutes.

    Advice: He did a solid job of defending the bigs on the inside and fared well on the offensive end. Koufos has been putting up some solid production and may have close to top-100 value while Demarcus Cousins (back) is day-to-day. Wednesday, 9:11 pm
  • Karl-Anthony Towns plays just 22 minutes Wed
    Karl-Anthony Towns finished Wednesday's home victory with six points, six rebounds, one assist, one block and three turnovers in 22 minutes vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Atlanta has been relatively lenient vs. opposing centers this year, so it's disappointing to see Towns post his second straight quiet line. Sam Mitchell leaned on his bench more than usual tonight, with only Andrew Wiggins (15 points, four boards) playing more than 23 minutes, so we're not reading too much into tonight's playing-time distribution. KAT should roar back to life in a favorable matchup with Sacramento on Friday. Wednesday, 8:45 pm
  • Gorgui Dieng double-doubles w/ full line
    Gorgui Dieng racked up 10 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks in 26 minutes of action vs. the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Advice: We've been talking about his per-minute potential since the preseason, and Dieng has finally crept north of the 25-minute in recent games, and it's no coincidence that Karl-Anthony Towns (22 minutes) was limited tonight. Run Dieng out there as long as he's getting the playing time, but don't be surprised if Sam Mitchell drags his minutes down in the near future. Wednesday, 8:43 pm
  • Andre Drummond's 18 & 20 lead Pistons to win
    Andre Drummond imposed his will against the Heat on Wednesday, finishing with 18 points, 20 boards, two steals, five blocks and only one turnover in 33 minutes.

    Advice: He used his strength to get position vs. Hassan Whiteside, the blocks were a season-high, and he only attempted one free throw (which he missed), all of which helped the Pistons snap a two-game losing streak. Drummond is on pace to be the first player to average at least 18 points and 17 rebounds since Moses Malone did it in 1978-79. Wednesday, 7:55 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside (illness) double-doubles Wed
    Hassan Whiteside (illness) started Wednesday's game and posted 15 points, 13 rebounds and three blocks in a loss vs. Andre Drummond and the Pistons.

    Advice: Whiteside made 7-of-9 field goals and continues to establish himself as a force to be reckoned with on a nightly basis. He's paying off richly for fantasy owners who gambled on him in the early rounds, posting top-15 value on the strength of 14.5 points (60.8 percent FGs), 11.1 rebounds, 0.8 steals and a gaudy 4.8 blocks. Wednesday, 7:51 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic scores 22 points w/ 12 boards
    Nikola Vucevic had 22 points on 10-of-19 shooting vs. New York on Wednesday, adding 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks.

    Advice: Vuc averaged 23.5 points and 15.5 rebounds vs. the Knicks last season, and his impressive stretch continued in Orlando's much-needed home victory. This should help allay any fears that arose after Vuc averaged a mere 22.3 minutes in Orlando's past three games. Wednesday, 7:06 pm
  • Robin Lopez solid but only plays 23 minutes
    Robin Lopez notched eight points, 12 rebounds, three assists and two blocks on Wednesday, despite playing only 23 minutes.

    Advice: RoLo hasn't had a double-double in over two weeks. He was averaging just under 30 minutes in New York's previous three games, but his playing time continues to rise and fall based upon matchups and Derek Fisher's whims. Because of his fluctuating role, Lopez is a late-round option for the foreseeable future. Wednesday, 7:01 pm
  • Marcin Gortat warming up, notches 17 & 12
    Marcin Gortat had a nice game vs. the Hornets, posting 17 points (6-of-8 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), 12 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 31 minutes.

    Advice: This is as close to a 'breakout' game as we've seen from Gortat, who is quietly improving his stock after a rough start to the season. His current 47.9 percent shooting is well below his 54.8 percent career average and an upward correction is inevitable. Wednesday, 6:42 pm
  • Tyson Chandler (illness) out vs. Pelicans
    Tyson Chandler (illness) will not play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was expected to play, but the Suns will be giving Alex Len his biggest chance of the season tonight. Jon Leuer should be looking at a lot of run while we see a lot of Markieff Morris at the five, too. Len is an interesting play tonight in standard leagues and in DFS. Wednesday, 4:28 pm
  • Kosta Koufos will start Wednesday vs. Bucks
    Kosta Koufos will enter the starting lineup for Wednesday's games against the Bucks with DeMarcus Cousins (back) unavailable.

    Advice: Rajon Rondo, Ben McLemore, Rudy Gay and Willie Cauley-Stein will join Koufos in the starting five for tonight's matchup in Milwaukee. Koufos is an okay punt play in DFS, but Gay and Rondo will be the true beneficiaries with Cousins sidelined. Plan accordingly. Wednesday, 3:48 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) will play vs. Mavs
    LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) will play against the Mavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: It'll be his first game back from his Friday ankle sprain. Aldridge is expected to guard Dirk Nowitzki tonight as the two launch plenty of jumpers. David West will move back to the bench and Boris Diaw may play less. We'll see how this affects offensive superstar Kawhi Leonard, but it probably won't. Wednesday, 3:45 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside (illness) will play vs. DET
    Hassan Whiteside (illness) is a go for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: This was the expected move as Whiteside was a full participant during shootaround, and he said that the stomach issue is now behind him. The Heat absolutely need Whiteside's size to compete with Andre Drummond, and that will be a fun matchup to watch. Go ahead and get him active. Wednesday, 3:09 pm
  • Tiago Splitter out again on Wednesday
    Tiago Splitter (hip) will not play against the Wolves on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has no timetable to return, but shouldn't miss much more time . With Splitter out, Mike Muscala and Mike Scott will get a few more minutes, but aren't terrific fantasy options. Wednesday, 2:39 pm
  • Andrew Bogut misses practice
    Andrew Bogut (back) missed practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is just dealing with stiffness, which was evident in Tuesday's game. Bogut should still be ready to go for Friday against the Suns. If he's not, Festus Ezeli will be in line for more minutes and the Warriors may go with the small-ball lineup with its super-human powers. Wednesday, 1:09 pm
  • Tyson Chandler (illness) expected to play Wed
    Tyson Chandler (illness) missed shootaround, but he's still expected to suit up for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Advice: Chandler hasn't done much at all this season with averages of just 5.4 points, 9.3 boards and a measly 0.9 steals and 0.7 blocks per contest. He's dealing with an illness, so he'll likely be limited tonight, making him an unattractive play in most leagues. Owners in standard leagues should seriously consider cutting him at this point. Wednesday, 10:16 am
  • Diaw implies Aldridge (ankle) will play Wed
    Boris Diaw implied that LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle, questionable) will play Wednesday against the Mavericks.

    Advice: Aldridge has spent the past two games on the sidelines with an ankle injury, and while the Spurs are still listing him with the questionable tag, Boris Diaw said that LaMarcus will most likely be guarding Dirk Nowitzki tonight. We're not likely going to have official confirmation on LMA's status until just before the tip, but things are trending in a positive direction for Aldridge. David West will return to the bench if LaMarcus is a go. Wednesday, 9:46 am
  • Whiteside (illness) goes through shootaround
    Hassan Whiteside (illness) was a full participant during Wednesday morning's shootaround, and he's expected to play vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: While things aren't official just yet, it sounds like Whiteside is going to give it a go tonight, and the Heat will certainly need his size to compete with the rebounding cyborg known as Andre Drummond. Whiteside said that his stomach issues are mostly over, so owners can plan on having him active. Check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off. Wednesday, 8:27 am
  • Hassan Whiteside says blocking shots not easy
    Hassan Whiteside stated during a recent interview that leading the league in blocks is no easy feat.

    Advice: "No, man, it's not as easy as you might think," Hassan said of his knack for swatting shots. "You know, it's weird, because there's two different teams. There's teams that are out there, 'Stay away from Hassan.' And there's teams out there, 'We don't care if Hassan is down there, attack Hassan.' And I love them teams. God bless them coaches and bless them. I love them teams." Despite shooting just 53.4 percent from the stripe, Hassan is putting up first-round value behind averages of 14.5 points (career-high), 11.1 boards (career-high) and a league-leading 4.8 blocks per game (also a career-high). Wednesday, 7:01 am
  • Andrew Bogut tweaks his back, stays in game
    Andrew Bogut tweaked his back in Tuesday's win over the Lakers, but he stayed in the game and finished with eight points, seven boards, two assists and two blocks in 21 minutes.

    Advice: To be clear, the injury looked minor and the Warriors simply put a wrap around his back, so we'll leave him off the injury report for now. With three days off until Friday's game vs. Phoenix, Bogut should be fine. His minutes will be held in check going forward because the Warriors want to keep him fresh for the postseason, so he is a low-end option at best. Tuesday, 10:15 pm
  • Nikola Jokic scores 16 points in loss
    Nikola Jokic scored 16 points with six boards, two assists and one turnover in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: Going up against an imposing frontcourt including Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan is never easy, but Jokic held his own and turned in a decent fantasy line. Jokic has played well in three out of his last four games and Nuggets head coach Michael Malone appears to be eager to develop him, and it's obvious that he has some upside. The return of Jusuf Nurkic (knee) in December could complicate things, but there's a lot to like about Jokic moving forward. Tuesday, 9:17 pm
  • Nene scores 11 despite calf injury
    Nene played through a calf injury and had 11 points, seven rebounds and four assists on 3-of-3 shooting in Tuesday's loss to Indy.

    Advice: He was iffy due to the injury and his minutes off the bench allowed starter Kris Humphries to play just nine minutes without scoring a point. Tuesday, 6:49 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside (illness) probable for Wed
    Hassan Whiteside (illness) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Whiteside didn't practice on Tuesday, but he is traveling with the team and is fully expected to be in the lineup in Detroit. Check back for an update after shootaround, but feel free to keep him locked in your lineups. Tuesday, 6:48 pm
  • Kenneth Faried (ankle) out for Tuesday night
    Kenneth Faried (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Tuesday.

    Advice: It'll be Darrell Arthur and Nikola Jokic manning the big-position minutes. Arthur played his best game in a long time with a 21-point outing vs. GSW and Jokic is coming off a double-double. Both are terrific plays in DFS in favorable matchups. Faried owners just have to be patient here from an injury that didn't looks serious. Will Barton, Gary Harris and Danilo Gallinari also benefit. Tuesday, 5:23 pm
  • Mike Muscala will be backup center sans Tiago
    Mike Muscala will be the backup center for the Hawks on Tuesday with Tiago Splitter (hip) sidelined.

    Advice: Muscala could see around 20 minutes of action tonight, but that's not really enough playing time to matter in most leagues. As long as Al Horford and Paul Millsap are healthy, Muscala will offer zero appeal to those in standard formats. Tuesday, 3:39 pm
  • Nene (calf) will play Tuesday vs. the Pacers
    Nene (calf) will play in Tuesday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: Nene should get around 18 minutes tonight, but with averages of just 8.2 points, 5.3 boards and 2.0 assists per game on the season, he's not worth owning in most leagues. Tuesday, 2:17 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside (illness) traveling w/ team
    Hassan Whiteside (illness) is traveling with the Heat to Detroit for Wednesday's game.

    Advice: Whiteside sat out Tuesday's practice and remains questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, and we likely won't have another update until after Wednesday morning's shootaround. If Whiteside isn't able to give it a go, Josh McRoberts could enter the starting five with Amare Stoudemire seeing some increased opportunity for playing time. Stay tuned. Tuesday, 12:50 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) questionable Wed
    LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks.

    Advice: Aldridge has missed the Spurs previous two game with the ankle injury, and while it's been Davis West starting sans Aldridge, Kawhi Leonard has been the true beneficiary with his usage rate climbing to 28.8 with LaMarcus on the sidelines. We'll likely get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, and if LMA isn't able to give it a go, Kawhi would be worth a look in daily leagues with a favorable matchup against the Wizards. Tuesday, 11:24 am
  • Faried (ankle) not expected to play Tuesday
    Kenneth Faried (ankle) did not go through shootaround, and he is not expected to play in Tuesday's game against the Clippers.

    Advice: Faried is currently sporting a walking boot, so it would be quite shocking if he were to give it a go tonight. Nikola Jokic, Darrell Arthur and J.J. Hickson will all see a boost in value with Faried on the sidelined, with Jokic offering the most upside. Tuesday, 11:15 am
  • Nene (calf) now a game-time call vs. Pacers
    Nene (calf) practiced on Tuesday and is a game-time decision to face the Pacers on Tuesday.

    Advice: He did not practice on Monday and chances are the Wizards won't put him out there with any sign of trouble in warmups. Nene is one of the most injury-prone players in the NBA and will likely have a minutes cap, too. Marcin Gortat may play more while Drew Gooden could get minutes. Also, Kris Humphries could play some five, which would open up more minutes for Jared Dudley. Tuesday, 9:37 am
  • Hassan Whiteside grateful for challenge
    Hassan Whiteside said he's grateful for teams that challenge him.

    Advice: After blocking five shots in Monday's win over the Knicks, Whiteside said he's glad teams challenge him. "You know, it's weird, because there's two different teams," Whiteside said. "There's teams that are out there, 'Stay away from Hassan.' And there's teams out there, 'We don't care if Hassan is down there, attack Hassan.' And I love them teams. God bless them coaches and bless them. I love them teams." The 26-year-old is enjoying a monster season with an average of 4.8 blocks per game and should be started on all fantasy rosters right now. Tuesday, 7:08 am
  • Tyson Chandler is quiet yet again
    Tyson Chandler scored one point with six boards and one steal in 20 minutes against the Spurs on Monday.

    Advice: The Suns went with a floor-spacing lineup for most of the second half, which kept Chandler out of the game. He's been horrible in his last five, averaging 2.0 points, 7.6 boards, 0.8 blocks and 1.4 turnovers in just 21.6 minutes. If you want to cut him in a standard league for a hot free agent, it makes sense. Monday, 10:36 pm
  • Markieff Morris scores 28 points in loss
    Markieff Morris made 12-of-15 from the field for a season-high 28 points against the Spurs on Monday, adding eight rebounds, four assists, one steal, two 3-pointers and six turnovers.

    Advice: With Eric Bledsoe (knee) out, there were some shots to go around. Morris was one of the worst high-volume players on the season before tonight, but he was one of the best in a losing effort. Morris is coming off a 17-point game on Sunday and should be owned in all leagues after a disastrous start. He also took an elbow to the head, but he's OK. Monday, 10:26 pm
  • Andre Drummond scores 15 with 15 boards
    Andre Drummond scored 15 points with 15 boards, one steal and one block in 24 minutes against the Bucks on Monday.

    Advice: He started a new double-double streak with this one and still has double-digit boards in every game. Drummond did not do a great job protecting the paint and former teammate Greg Monroe had some success against him. Drummond is a good bet for over 70 double-doubles this season. Monday, 10:01 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside blocks five more shots
    Hassan Whiteside blocked five shots during a 95-78 win over the Knicks on Monday, adding 11 points, 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes.

    Advice: The blocks are out of control. Whiteside's 4.8 blocks per game are more than 12 teams. He has first-round value in standard leagues and has been even better than his breakout 2014-15 season. Monday, 9:45 pm
  • Serge Ibaka struggles in win over Jazz
    Serge Ibaka struggled with foul trouble on Monday vs. the Jazz, finishing with 11 points, four boards, four blocks and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

    Advice: All things considered, this was a decent line for Ibaka if you forget about his four turnovers. The Jazz are an incredible team on the defensive end with guys like Rudy Gobert and Derrick Favors patrolling the paint, so Ibaka should have a much easier time against Thaddeus Young and the Nets on Wednesday. Monday, 9:35 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor scores 25 points in loss Monday
    Jahlil Okafor scored 25 points in Monday's loss to the Wolves, adding 12 boards and one assist in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Karl-Anthony Towns couldn't contain him and got into some foul trouble, so Okafor had his way in the paint for most of the game and shot 10-of-15 from the field. He hit 5-of-7 from the free throw line as well, but the rookie also had four turnovers. He is starting to show some improvement on the offensive end, and his fantasy arrow is currently pointing up. Monday, 8:43 pm
  • Kosta Koufos scores 10 points
    Kosta Koufos scored 10 points in 24 minutes against the Hornets on Monday with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks.

    Advice: DeMarcus Cousins (back, thigh) was hurt tonight, so perhaps Koufos gets put in the starting lineup. He's clearly outplaying Willie Cauley-Stein and is worth a speculative add for owners needing some short term help with their big men. Monday, 8:33 pm
  • Gorgui Dieng plays 29 minutes in win Monday
    Gorgui Dieng played 29 minutes against the 76ers on Monday, scoring 12 points with five boards, two blocks and one steal.

    Advice: Karl-Anthony Towns played just 17 minutes because he was in foul trouble, so Dieng filled in at center admirably. His playing time will continue to be limited because of coach Sam Mitchell's refusal to play him at power forward, but his role will hopefully grow as the season progresses. Monday, 8:22 pm
  • Kevin Love scores 34 points in win vs. Magic
    Kevin Love scored a season-high 34 points during a 117-103 win over the Magic on Monday, adding eight rebounds, four assists, one block and six 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was 11-of-18 from the field and the Magic just did not defend him on the perimeter. Love is on fire over his last five, averaging 24.8 points, 11.4 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.6 blocks and 3.2 treys on 53.2 percent from the field. He's probably at peak value right now, so a sell-high opportunity makes sense. Monday, 8:10 pm
  • Karl-Anthony Towns held to six points in win
    Karl-Anthony Towns struggled with foul trouble in Monday's win over the 76ers, finishing with just six points, two boards, one steal and two blocks in 17 minutes.

    Advice: He really struggled to contain Jahlil Okafor who scored 25 points for the 76ers tonight, and a couple of Towns' fouls were a little careless. He is still performing a lot better than his ADP and is returning second-round value, so he deserves some slack here. The Wolves will be back in action on Wednesday vs. the Hawks. Monday, 7:47 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic could be benched?
    Nikola Vucevic played just 26 minutes against the Cavs on Monday with 12 points, five boards, two assists and one turnover.

    Advice: Coach Scott Skiles will be making a change to his starting lineup on Wednesday and there's a decent chance we see Dewayne Dedmon start over Vooch. Still, Vucevic is too valuable to be benched this severely all season, so his owners just have to hang in there. Monday, 6:56 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) out for Monday
    LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) will not play against the Suns on Monday.

    Advice: It'll be his second game out after playing through an ankle injury from Friday. With Aldridge out, West should get the start and play minutes in the mid-20s, but his usage rate will be tiny in the first unit. Boris Diaw and Matt Bonner should also help out. Kawhi Leonard could have a big game tonight. Monday, 3:47 pm
  • Nene (calf) misses practice on Monday
    Nene (left calf) did not practice on Monday and is doubtful to play on Tuesday against the Pacers.

    Advice: He just can't stay healthy and the Wizards will likely handle him very carefully. This means more minutes will go to Marcin Gortat and Drew Gooden would likely play off the bench. Nene isn't worth owning in standard leagues. Monday, 12:56 pm
  • Kenneth Faried (ankle) doubtful for Tuesday
    Kenneth Faried (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Clippers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Faried apparently suffered the ankle injury on Friday, but he played through whatever injury he had during that game without any noticeable limp. Coach Mike Malone questioned his team's effort, so hopefully that isn't a factor here. Faried's owners should bench him while Darrell Arthur is worth a look in deep leagues. Nikola Jokic should be owned in all standard leagues. Monday, 12:01 pm
  • Tiago Splitter (hip) doesn't practice Monday
    Tiago Splitter (hip) was unable to practice on Monday and will not play on Tuesday.

    Advice: Mike Budenholzer didn't seem concerned about the injury after Splitter sustained it.. However, if Splitter is forced to miss more action, it will really just mean Al Horford spends a few extra minutes at center as opposed to any of the bench guys getting an extra boost. Mike Muscala would also get more run. Monday, 10:41 am
  • LaMarcus Aldridge remains questionable Monday
    LaMarcus Aldridge (left ankle sprain) is still considered questionable for Monday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: "He looked OK," teammate Danny Green said. The only real update we have to go off of is that Aldridge was practicing free throws when practice opened to the media, and there is nothing to take away from that. Considering the Suns were the other team seriously in the running for LMA's services before he signed in San Antonio, Aldridge should have plenty of motivation to try and take the floor. If he's held out, veteran David West would likely draw another start, but Kyle Anderson, Manu Ginobili and Boris Diaw would all help fill the void off the bench. Monday, 9:39 am
  • Towns striving for it all when on the floor
    Karl-Anthony Towns said he wants to be the "strongest player, the most intelligent player and the most skilled player on the court at all times."

    Advice: We all know I can hit 3s," Towns said. "But for now, I'm taking what the defense gives me." Focusing on doing everything the proper way and stressing the process over the results, Towns is on his way to being a transcendent, once-in-a-generation kind of player. Through the first 13 games of his career, Towns is averaging 16.0 points, 10.4 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 2.4 blocks on 52.2 percent shooting. The debate over who should have been selected with the No. 1 overall pick was never real. Monday, 6:34 am
  • Nikola Jokic double-doubles vs. Warriors
    Nikola Jokic started again on Sunday and posted 11 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 27 minutes vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: He's still learning the game, particularly on defense, but he played with impressive energy and should be able to hold off J.J. Hickson for the starting center job. He's worth a flier while earning 25-30 minutes per game. Sunday, 7:50 pm
  • Andrew Bogut solid but plays only 18 minutes
    Andrew Bogut played well in 18 minutes on Sunday, posting eight points, six boards, two assists, one steal and three blocks.

    Advice: Bogut has been a per-minute stud through 15 games, returning top-100 value in only 20.2 minutes per game. His upside is limited due to the playing time issues, but at least it reduces the likelihood of an injury. Sunday, 7:47 pm
  • Serge Ibaka gets some traction offensively
    Serge Ibaka got going offensively on Sunday with 16 points on 8-of-15 shooting, nine rebounds, one assist and one block.

    Advice: He was just 6-of-24 in his previous two games and his scoring was a welcome sight for OKC's offense, especially with Kevin Durant (hamstring) still unavailable. The bad news is that Ibaka has zero steals and one block in his past two games, but he should have better luck vs. Utah on Monday. Sunday, 6:47 pm
  • Markieff Morris' minutes increase vs Pelicans
    Markieff Morris made only 6-of-15 shots on Sunday but finished with 17 points, one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes.

    Advice: His playing time was down over the past two games so this is a great sign for his frustrated owners -- Jeff Hornacek even left Morris on the court after an ill-advised technical foul in the fourth quarter. Hopefully he can keep this momentum going on Monday. Sunday, 6:05 pm
  • Tyson Chandler plays only 16 minutes Sunday
    Tyson Chandler played only 16 minutes vs. New Orleans, finishing with one point, 10 rebounds, one block and three turnovers.

    Advice: With Anthony Davis playing center in small-ball lineups most of the night, the matchups simply didn't favor Chandler. He has played 30+ minutes just once in the past seven games and his offense has been non-existent, reducing him to a late-round value in 8-cat and 9-cat leagues. Sunday, 6:05 pm
  • Pelicans win behind Anthony Davis' 32 & 19
    Anthony Davis lit up the Suns for 32 points, 19 rebounds, one assist, two steals and four blocks in a narrow victory on Sunday, making 11-of-22 FGs and 9-of-11 FTs.

    Advice: After overcoming a few minor injuries, Davis is rolling along nicely in his past two games -- he even sank a clutch 3-pointer tonight to maintain the lead with under a minute left. He'll get a few days to rest before heading to Phoenix for a rematch, the first of three road games for New Orleans next week. Sunday, 6:01 pm
  • Kenneth Faried (ankle) will not play Sunday
    Kenneth Faried (ankle) will not play on Sunday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Nuggets coach Michael Malone didn't seem too optimistic about his status prior to the game, so this isn't a huge surprise. Looking ahead, we'll consider him questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers. Darrell Arthur will start next to Nikola Jokic in the frontocurt, while J.J. Hickson should see a few extra minutes as well. Sunday, 4:27 pm
  • Faried (ankle) will be a game-time decision
    Kenneth Faried (ankle) will likely be a game-time decision for Sunday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Nuggets coach Michael Malone said that he was hoping to get a "few" minutes out of Faried tonight, so it sounds like he may not have a full workload if he is active. If Faried is unable to play we could see a lot more J.J. Hickson and Nikola Jokic, while Darrell Arthur could play more as well. Stay tuned. Sunday, 3:32 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) questionable Monday
    LaMarcus Aldridge (mild left ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Suns.

    Advice: If Aldridge is again unable to go on Monday, it'll likely be David West drawing the start with Boris Diaw having some increased opportunity for playing time. Kawhi Leonard logged 40 minutes on Saturday with LaMarcus unavailable, so he could again see heavy minutes on Monday, and he'd be worth considering in DFS with an uptempo matchup against Phoenix. Sunday, 2:41 pm
  • Pop: LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) is day-to-day
    Spurs coach Gregg Popovich indicated on Saturday that LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) is day-to-day.

    Advice: Aldridge didn't suit up against the Grizzlies on Saturday after playing through his ankle sprain on Friday vs. the Pelicans, and he admitted that he was having trouble moving around in that game. "I tried to play through it, but I was a bit of a liability on the defensive side," Aldridge said. "I couldn’t move laterally." The Spurs play the Suns on Monday, so Aldridge should be considered questionable for that contest. If he can't go, David West could potentially draw another start. Sunday, 8:10 am
  • Tiago Splitter's hip injury isn't serious?
    Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer didn't seem to be too concerned about Tiago Splitter's hip injury.

    Advice: "His hip is giving him a little bit of problem so we’ll continue to evaluate him and see what it is going forward," Budenholzer said. It sounds like Splitter is day-to-day, but he does have some durability issues and the Hawks tend to be play it safe with their players. For now, we'll consider Splitter questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics. If he does miss time, expect Al Horford to spend more time at the five. Sunday, 7:46 am
  • Hassan Whiteside blocks eight shots vs. PHI
    Hassan Whiteside scored 13 points with nine rebounds, one steal and eight blocks against the 76ers on Saturday.

    Advice: Everyone loves to block Jahlil Okafor and Whiteside picked up two off him with three off Nerlens Noel. Whiteside is leading the NBA in blocks with 4.8 per game, adding averages of 14.8 points, 11.1 boards, 0.8 steals and 2.3 turnovers. He has top-10 value right now. Saturday, 8:59 pm
  • Clint Capela scores 16 points with 14 boards
    Clint Capela scored a career-high 16 points with 14 boards, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday.

    Advice: Dwight Howard was rested on the second night of a back-to-back set, so Capela will return to the bench for Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies. As good as his performance was, Capela is only averaging 5.6 points and 5.0 boards when he comes off the bench, so he is basically just a handcuff for Howard at the moment. However, if Howard goes down at some point this season then owners will want to run to the waiver wire to scoop Capela up. Saturday, 8:55 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor blocked five times again
    Jahlil Okafor scored 16 points on 8-of-20 from the field against the Heat on Saturday for 16 points with 11 rebounds, one assist and three blocks.

    Advice: He was blocked five times tonight for the second straight game. Okafor has been blocked 34 times on the season, which accounts for 27.4 percent of his misses. His outstanding post game in college hasn't translated right away yet, but he's trending up at least. Saturday, 8:40 pm
  • Marcin Gortat scores 14 in a win
    Marcin Gortat scored 14 points with eight rebounds, and one assist against the Pistons on Saturday.

    Advice: He's starting to come around on the offensive side in his last four with at least 12 points in all of those games. The bad news is that Gortat's blocks are way down and his minutes are down from last year, too. He will probably be more of a mid-round guy until Nene gets hurt, but he's still a buy-low player. Saturday, 8:10 pm
  • Robin Lopez scores eight points in win
    Robin Lopez scored eight points with six boards and two assists in 25 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: Even with Dwight Howard (rest) out for Houston, Lopez struggled in the paint against Clint Capela and failed to record any blocks or steals. His contract with the Knicks isn't looking too good at the moment as he is averaging just 4.6 points, 6.0 boards and 1.0 block in 23.0 minutes per game in his last five, but his starting spot should be safe because the Knicks have won four straight and have a lot of money invested in the big man. Treat him as a low-end asset until further notice. Saturday, 8:09 pm
  • Nene has a terrific game
    Nene made 9-of-10 from the field for 18 points against the Pistons on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and five fouls in 22 minutes.

    Advice: That's a really nice effort out of Nene and he even showed some nice handles in the open court. He's hurt far too often to be added in standard leagues, though. Saturday, 8:07 pm
  • Andre Drummond does not double-double
    Andre Drummond scored eight points with 13 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal against the Wizards during his 37 minutes of action.

    Advice: He had a monster jam as he ran down the lane in the first half, but didn't really do much on offense with the Wizards defending him well. Drummond failed to log a double-double for the first time all season and he's also dropped his rebounds per game in each of his last four. He's obviously fine. You can check out the dunk in the link below. Saturday, 7:43 pm
  • Kevin Love scores 25 points in win vs. ATL
    Kevin Love kept it going against the Hawks on Saturday with 25 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He's one of the hottest power forwards in fantasy right now. In his last four games, Love averaged 22.5 points, 12.3 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.5 blocks and 2.5 treys. He's managed to move into the top 25 on the season despite sub-par shooting, so he's a bit of a sell high with Kyrie Irving (knee) improving. Saturday, 7:20 pm
  • Mike Muscala gets 19 minutes
    Mike Muscala played 19 minutes off the bench against the Cavs on Saturday with seven points, two rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He has a chance for more playing time with Tiago Splitter (hip) missing time. Muscala obviously won't be getting more than around 22 minutes, so he's more of a deep-league add. He also had a limp after the game, too. Saturday, 7:05 pm
  • Tiago Splitter (hip) will not return Saturday
    Tiago Splitter (right hip pain) will not return to Saturday's game vs. the Cavs.

    Advice: Splitter isn't known for his durability, so the Hawks will be cautious with him like the Spurs did with him in San Antonio last season. Splitter isn't a fantasy asset outside of deeper leagues anyways, and his absence will force Al Horford to log more minutes at the five. Saturday, 5:57 pm
  • Clint Capela will start on Saturday vs. NYK
    Clint Capela will start on Saturday vs. the Knicks with Dwight Howard (rest) unavailable.

    Advice: Howard still isn't cleared for back-to-back sets, but it sounds like that could change soon. Capela doesn't have much value when Howard is active, but owners should look his way in the future if Howard goes down at some point this season. Saturday, 4:51 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic, Vic Oladipo benched yet again
    Nikola Vucevic did not play in the final 14:23 of Saturday's loss to the Kings, finishing with 11 points, 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes.

    Advice: This was a close game, but coach Scott Skiles went with Channing Frye at center over Vooch in crunch time. Dewayne Dedmon took some of Vucevic's minutes on Wednesday, but maybe Skiles wanted some extra 3-point shooting. Also, Skiles doesn't appear to be pleased with Vucevic's effort. This probably won't continue for too long, but this is nothing new from Skiles. Vooch's owners have to sit tight until Skiles stops benching his best big man. Saturday, 4:42 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) out vs. Memphis
    LaMarcus Aldridge (ankle) will not play against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Advice: He played through his ankle sprain from Friday and it is going to cost him tonight. Aldridge shouldn't be out for too long and should be considered questionable to face the Suns on Monday. As for tonight, David West has only played 8.6 percent of his minutes next to LMA and Diaw at 41.7 percent next to LMA. On the downside, West does only have a 13.4 usage rate next to Kawhi Leonard and Tim Duncan, and Matt Bonner could be in the mix for minutes too. In other words, DFS owners shouldn't be too aggressive in capitalizing here outside of using Kawhi Leonard. Saturday, 3:47 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic back in the starting lineup
    The Magic will start Elfrid Payton, Victor Oladipo, Evan Fournier, Tobias Harris and Nikola Vucevic on Saturday against the Kings.

    Advice: Vooch was benched and didn't play in the second half on Wednesday. "As good as he is, we want more -- more effort and more energy," coach Scott Skiles said. The Magic got the win, so benched him worked out. Still, expect Vucevic to get his normal playing time. Saturday, 12:28 pm
  • Kenneth Faried questionable to face GSW
    Kenneth Faried is questionable to play against the Warriors on Sunday due to a left ankle sprain.

    Advice: He was on the court for the final minutes of the game and didn't appear to be hurt whatsoever. The Nuggets should have an update on him at tomorrow's shootaround. Faried is playing a lot of five, so his absence would lead to more minutes for Nikola Jokic, Darrell Arthur and even Will Barton because the Nuggets will use a lot of stretch fours. Saturday, 12:15 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor could play more power forward
    76ers head coach Brett Brown is considering giving Jahlil Okafor more time at power forward while playing Nerlens Noel at center more.

    Advice: "When you have this new group and you’re trying to let those two guys co-exist, there’s a lot of moving parts that we can learn from," Brown said. "It’s a challenge, but that’s my job." Brown would like to take advantage of Okafor's shooting touch from the elbow, and it's obvious that Noel is much better when he is closer to the basket. The 76ers staggered their minutes against Charlotte and they played just 11 minutes together in the loss, so we could see that trend continue moving forward. Saturday, 6:45 am
  • Tyson Chandler plays just 18 minutes
    Tyson Chandler played just 18 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday with two points, four boards and one turnover.

    Advice: The Suns went with Jon Leuer as a stretch five for much of this game as the Nuggets couldn't defend all the spacing. Chandler is usually hovering around 27 minutes most night and should be around that time on Sunday against the Pelicans. He's a hold as a lower-upside big man. Saturday, 12:10 am
  • Markieff Morris gets benched
    Markieff Morris played just 21 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday with nine points, five rebounds, two assists and one block.

    Advice: He didn't play in the fourth quarter as the Suns wanted to get a shooter out there to pull off a comeback. Morris has really struggled on the season and isn't even putting up top 200 value. He still has some upside, but it's really tough to hold him right now in shallower leagues. Saturday, 12:03 am
  • Kenneth Faried scores just four points
    Kenneth Faried scored four points with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and three turnovers in 25 minutes on Friday against the Suns during a 114-107 loss.

    Advice: Coach Mike Malone put Faried out there at center to close the game in hopes he could defend the pick-and-roll better, but that didn't happen. Faried has found his way into the doghouse a number of times, so hopefully he's not going to get in there again. He'll have to deal with Draymond Green on Sunday, so he wouldn't be a DFS play anyway. Friday, 11:40 pm
  • Nikola Jokic exposed on defense in start
    Nikola Jokic made his first NBA start of his career on Friday against the Suns, scoring six points with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He looked totally lost at times on defense as the Nuggets just could not communicate on pick-and-roll to defend shooters. Jokic was completely overmatched and the Suns basically had a target on his back in the fourth quarter -- he had a minus-99 net rating in 3.3 minutes. Hopefully the Nuggets can coach him up and keep him in the starting lineup. The Nuggets get the Warriors on Sunday, so that's not good for Jokic. If you picked him up, you should probably cut him some slack until Sunday. Friday, 11:24 pm
  • Serge Ibaka scores eight points
    Serge Ibaka scored eight points on 4-of-13 from the field against the Knicks on Friday, adding three rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

    Advice: He had 13 blocks in his last three games, but he didn't have any tonight because the Knicks didn't attack him at the rim and he was outside of the paint a lot. Ibaka is also coming off a 2-of-11 from the field on Wednesday, so he's in a mini slump. He'll bounce back soon and Kevin Durant's return will help. Friday, 10:17 pm
  • Anthony Davis returns with 20 and 18
    Anthony Davis returned from a two-game absence on Friday during a 104-90 win over the Spurs, scoring 20 points with 18 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 39 minutes.

    Advice: He did have a mild scare today with a small shoulder tweak, but he was fine. The Pelicans finally got a win and now move to 2-11 on the season. Davis' shoulder bothered him before he missed time, so hopefully he can put it behind him. As long as he's healthy, he should be a high-end fantasy asset. Friday, 10:04 pm
  • Andre Drummond scores 21 with 11 rebounds
    Andre Drummond scored 21 point with 11 rebounds, two steals and one block in 29 minutes against the Wolves during a 96-86 win on Friday.

    Advice: While he did not rebound anywhere near what he usually does, Drummond made 10-of-13 from the field for his highest efficiency all season. He'll look to have 20/20 vision in what should be an up-tempo game against the Wizards on Saturday. Friday, 9:24 pm
  • Gorgui Dieng plays 20 minutes vs. Pistons
    Gorgui Dieng played 20 minutes against the Pistons on Friday with eight points, four rebounds and two steals.

    Advice: Even with Nemanja Bjelica (knee) out tonight, Dieng did not log any minutes at power forward. He is putting up some solid per-game numbers, but Dieng figures to be in the teens for playing time most nights. Friday, 8:22 pm
  • Towns Haul: Karl-Anthony fills stat sheet
    Karl-Anthony Towns went off yet again during a loss to the Pistons on Friday, making 8-of-10 from the field for 18 points with seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks in 28 minutes.

    Advice: He's already one of the best big men in fantasy and he turned 20 on Sunday. On the season, he has averages of 16.0 points, 10.4 boards, 1.1 assists, 0.7 steals and 2.4 blocks on 52.2 percent from the field and 90.7 percent from the line. Towns' is per-game value in standard leagues (19) is lower than his age. Friday, 8:18 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor gets a post-up lesson
    Jahlil Okafor made 4-of-12 from the field for 10 points with seven boards, two assists and three turnovers in 30 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

    Advice: He's compared to Al Jefferson for his post-up style, but he was awful on both ends with Big Al blocking him five times. Okafor's minutes were staggered a bit more with Nerlens Noel moving to the bench and he might see less playing time while the 76ers figure out what to do. It shouldn't affect his fantasy value too much, though. Okafor is more of a late-round player and has 14th-round value on the season in standard leagues. Friday, 6:52 pm
  • Nikola Jokic will start on Friday night
    Nikola Jokic will start against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: Well, go get him. Jokic could let you down, but he's coming in red hot and has a ton of upside. He should play minutes and should be picked up by anyone needing a big man. Yes, you can never have too many big men, so that means add him. Friday, 5:33 pm
  • Nikola Jokic to get extra run on Friday?
    Coach Mike Malone said he's going to let "[Nikola] Jokic run a lot because he feels he can handle the work load."

    Advice: Jokic was the story of the night on Wednesday with his eight-cat line of 23 points and 12 boards. He's probably going to come off the bench tonight against the Suns, but he might be getting minutes in the mid 20s. If you were thinking about picking him up before, you might want to do it now in case he goes off an someone else grabs him. Friday, 4:21 pm
  • Anthony Davis (shoulder) will play Friday
    Anthony Davis (shoulder) will play on Friday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: He made it through shootaround unscathed, and while coach Alvin Gentry said that he will be a game-time decison, Davis confirmed that he will play. His injury never looked serious, so he shouldn't have any restrictions. Ryan Anderson's value just took a hit, but he is still worth starting in all leagues. Get Davis in your lineup. Friday, 9:10 am
  • Malone praises rookie Nikola Jokic
    Nuggets head coach Michael Malone praised Nikola Jokic after his performance against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: "His feel for the game, his skill level, he's got great hands, he's so good at getting deflections and steals," Malone said. "We're so excited about his progress and his potential because we think in Emmanuel [Mudiay] and Nikola we have two great young players." Jokic scored 23 points with 12 rebounds, two steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer in that contest, but it should be noted that Joffrey Lauvergne (back) and Jusuf Nurkic are still sidelined. Jokic clearly has a lot of upside, so feel free to give him a look if you need a big. Friday, 7:52 am
  • Kevin Love scores 22 points with 15 boards
    Kevin Love scored 22 points with 15 boards, one assist, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Bucks on Thursday.

    Advice: He has put up some big numbers against the Bucks with a 24-point, 14-board game on Saturday. While Love isn't shooting the ball well at just 40.7 percent from the field in his previous eight games this month, he has averages of 16.5 points, 11.9 boards, 2.1 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.4 blocks and 2.0 treys. His owners will be hoping Kyrie Irving (knee) takes his sweet time for a return. Thursday, 9:09 pm
  • Kosta Koufos plays 25 minutes
    Kosta Koufos played 25 minutes in the starting lineup on Thursday with six points and seven boards.

    Advice: He had three fouls in the first quarter to send him to the bench early. Koufos had a lot of easy looks and didn't shoot the ball well, making 3-of-8 from the field and missing both free throws. With DeMarcus Cousins returning, there's no reason to add Koufos. Thursday, 7:21 pm
  • Kosta Koufos, Omri Casspi starting vs. Miami
    Kosta Koufos and Omri Casspi will enter the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Heat, sending Quincy Acy back to the bench.

    Advice: The Kings will roll out a starting five of Rajon Rondo, Ben McLemore, Casspi, Rudy Gay and Koufos. Gay and Rondo make for the most attractive DFS targets. Thursday, 4:01 pm
  • Kosta Koufos likely to start on Thursday
    George Karl said that he'll probably start Kosta Koufos at center for Thursday night's matchup against the Heat with DeMarcus Cousins (suspension) unavailable.

    Advice: Karl said that he's planning on starting Omri Casspi at the three, sliding Rudy Gay over to the four-spot with Koufos at center. Koufos isn't really a stat sheet stuffer, and with a tough matchup against the Heat, he'll make for a risky DFS option. Rudy Gay, however, owns a 29.4 usage rate sans Boogie, so he's going to be very busy on offense and will make for a quality DFS target tonight. Thursday, 3:22 pm
  • Anthony Davis (shoulder) questionable Friday
    Anthony Davis (left shoulder) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Spurs.

    Advice: Davis will likely be a game-time decision on Friday, and if he can't give it a go, Ryan Anderson will be forced into heavy minutes (he played 44 minutes on Wednesday) as the Pelicans starting power forward with zero depth behind him. Stay tuned. Thursday, 1:21 pm
  • Markieff Morris (knee) struggles in return
    Markieff Morris (knee) posted six points on 3-of-9 shooting on Wednesday, playing 29 minutes in his first action after a two-game absence.

    Advice: Markieff came in with abysmal career averages vs. the Bulls -- 8.0 points on 27.3 percent shooting -- and he's been lousy all season, so this comes as no surprise. He added five rebounds, one assist, three steals and three turnovers tonight, and at least he didn't aggravate his knee. He'll have a chance to get going vs. the Nuggets' defense on Friday. Wednesday, 10:16 pm
  • Nikola Jokic erupts w/ 23 & 12 in career game
    Nikola Jokic racked up career highs across the board on Wednesday, scoring 23 points with one 3-pointer, 12 rebounds, two steals and three blocks in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Wow. He made 8-of-13 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs and didn't commit a single turnover -- if he'd handed out a few assists this would be a perfect 9-cat line. Head coach Mike Malone likes him, and there's a chance Jokic could be fantasy-worth even once Joffrey Lauvergne (back) is healthy. This huge night seemingly came out of nowhere, as he'd played one minute in Tuesday's game, but he has enough potential to be speculatively added in most leagues. You can always cut him if it doesn't work out. Wednesday, 9:14 pm
  • Steven Adams plays season-low 11 minutes
    Steven Adams played a season-low 11 minutes vs. the short-handed Pelicans on Wednesday, finishing scoreless with two rebounds and one block.

    Advice: The matchup was the culprit here, as New Orleans went small, and it didn't help that Enes Kanter looked dominant in 31 minutes off the bench. Expect Adams to resume his typical 24-28 minute role vs. Robin Lopez and the Knicks on Friday. Wednesday, 8:41 pm
  • Gorgui Dieng plays w/ KAT, blocks five shots
    Gorgui Dieng had seven points, seven rebounds, two steals and five blocks in Wednesday's tough loss, playing 21 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: "We're not a great shooting basketball team," coach Sam Mitchell said recently, "so we have to rely on our defense and rebounding." You'd think that reality would lead to more than 18.6 minutes per game for Dieng, but Mitchell hasn't seen it that way. Dieng played alongside Karl-Anthony Towns down the stretch, but that's because Nemanja Bjelica had fouled out and Adreian Payne was ineffective. His excellent game could result in an expanded role, but it's just as likely that his minutes drop once Kevin Garnett (rest) returns. Wednesday, 7:51 pm
  • Karl-Anthony goes to Town: 21 pts & six blks
    Karl-Anthony Towns racked up 21 points, 12 rebounds and a career-high six blocks vs. the Magic on Wednesday, hitting 8-of-12 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs in 37 minutes.

    Advice: KAT had two blocks in his previous four games combined, but this should silence any grumbling from his owners -- he's a stud. He was sitting on top-30 value (9-cat) prior to this gem, and has the potential to flirt with second-round value all year long. Wednesday, 7:49 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic benched after halftime vs. MIN
    Nikola Vucevic was benched after halftime on Wednesday and he never got back into the game, finishing with eight points, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 16 minutes.

    Advice: The Magic trailed by 14 points at halftime and Vucevic was 4-of-13 from the field at that point. "[I] just didn't think he played very well," said Skiles, who is living up to our preseason fears. He's yanking around player's roles on a night-to-night basis, but Vuc is far too good for this to be a long-term concern. Barring one injury-shortened appearance, he'd played at least 26 minutes in every game this season. Expect him to start on Saturday. Wednesday, 7:45 pm
  • Lavoy Allen logs 19 minutes in fill-in start
    With George Hill (illness) out on Wednesday, Lavoy Allen had seven points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 19 minutes as a fill-in starter.

    Advice: "[Allen] is just one of those guys who does everything right," said coach Frank Vogel. "He’s a big, strong body that you can’t post him up, you can’t pound him, you can’t beat him on the glass. I think he’s one of those glue guys that makes everybody better." His glue-guy status hasn't yielded fantasy value this season, unfortunately, and he should remain unowned in typical leagues. Wednesday, 7:04 pm
  • Markieff Morris will start on Wednesday
    Markieff Morris (knee) will start on Wednesday against the Bulls.

    Advice: He is getting over a knee injury and missed the last two games. Morris has been one of the most inefficient forwards in the NBA, so hopefully the time off can help him get on track. He should be starting in almost all leagues. Jon Leuer and Mirza Teletovic lose value. Wednesday, 6:00 pm
  • Dedmon & Frye start 3Q for Oladipo & Vucevic
    The Magic started the third quarter on Wednesday with Dewayne Dedmon and Channing Frye for Victor Oladipo and Nikola Vucevic.

    Advice: Coach Scott Skiles is at it again here after his team was beaten up on the defensive end. No man is safe. We'll let you know how everyone does in the second half. Wednesday, 5:24 pm
  • Anthony Davis (shoulder) won't play Wednesday
    Anthony Davis (left shoulder) will not play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was listed as a 'probable starter' earlier in the day, but this is just the latest example of game notes being wrong. Details have been scarce but Alvin Gentry said Davis got "a bump" on Sunday and may have aggravated the injury during Tuesday's game -- he's reportedly having trouble raising his arm. We're optimistically considering him day-to-day. Expect Ryan Anderson to get all the minutes he can handle tonight, with extra opportunities opening up for Dante Cunningham, Luke Babbitt and Alexis Ajinca. Wednesday, 4:21 pm
  • Tiago Splitter will return to the bench Wed
    Tiago Splitter will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: Splitter started on Tuesday, but only managed to get 12 minutes to go with two points, three boards and a block. He's not a fantasy option. Wednesday, 4:05 pm
  • Anthony Davis (shoulder) doubtful to play
    Anthony Davis (shoulder) is doubtful to play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: There is still no word on whether or not the Pelicans are going to give him an MRI or really any specific regarding what part of his shoulder is hurting. If he is out, there will be a lot of Ryan Anderson, Luke Babbitt, Dante Cunningham at the five, and three-guard lineups tonight. Wednesday, 3:32 pm
  • Lavoy Allen starting, Chase Budinger to bench
    Lavoy Allen will start and Chase Budinger will move to the bench against the 76ers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Well, the 76ers decided to move Nerlens Noel to the bench to match up with the Pacers, so that may change the plan here. Allen isn't a high-volume player and doesn't block shots, so he's not a strong player to use in daily fantasy leagues. Wednesday, 2:35 pm
  • Davis, Asik listed as probable starters Wed
    Anthony Davis (shoulder) and Omer Asik (illness) are being listed as the probable starters for Wednesday's matchup with the Thunder.

    Advice: Both players are officially questionable, so them being listed as probable starters in the game notes doesn't mean much. It sounds like both could be headed for a game-time decision, and if neither guy is able to give it a go, Ryan Anderson would be a safe bet to start with either Alexis Ajinca or Dante Cunningham replacing Asik. Anderson is the guy to target in daily leagues sans Davis, but he'll draw a tough matchup against Serge Ibaka, making him a slightly risky option. Wednesday, 10:57 am
  • Markieff Morris (knee) probable Wednesday
    Markieff Morris (knee) is probable to play Wednesday against the Bulls.

    Advice: Morris made it through the entirety of Tuesday's practice without a setback, so he should return to the starting lineup for tonight's game against the Bulls. His return to the lineup will send Jon Leuer back to the bench, and Mirza Teletovic's minutes will take a decent sized hit. Wednesday, 8:34 am
  • Andrew Bogut plays 17 minutes in start Tues
    Andrew Bogut moved back into the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors and scored 13 points with six boards, two assists, one steal and one block in just 17 minutes.

    Advice: Bogut's minutes were limited because he had five fouls, but his playing time should settle somewhere in the mid-20s moving forward because the Warriors will want to keep him fresh for the postseason. Bogut has been playing really well, so he's worth owning in most leagues while he is this hot. Tuesday, 10:33 pm
  • Nikola Jokic gets one minute
    Nikola Jokic played just one minute against the Pelicans on Tuesday with one rebound.

    Advice: He fell victim to the small-ball lineup here. Jokic should get more time tomorrow night against the Spurs, but is obviously only worth a look in deep leagues. Tuesday, 10:26 pm
  • Andre Drummond scores 25 with 18 boards
    Andre Drummond scored 25 points with 18 rebounds during a 104-99 win over the Cavs on Tuesday, adding three steals and one block in 39 minutes.

    Advice: These rebounding numbers are insane and he actually pulled his average down tonight. Drummond grabbed at least 15 rebounds in each of his last nine games. The last players to do that for 10 straight games were DeAndre Jordan last year, Anderson Varejao in 2012 and Kevin Love in 2010. He's been a 19-19 player on the year and is a DFS monster. Tuesday, 9:43 pm
  • Kevin Love scores 19 points vs. Pistons
    Kevin Love scored 19 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 34 minutes against the Pistons on Tuesday.

    Advice: He did suffer a minor left knee injury as he bumped knees with Ersan Ilyasova. Love was able to stay in the game and his owners don't really need to be too concerned about him missing game action because of this. He'll get another date with the Bucks on Thursday, which could be a good thing after he put up a 24-point, 14-board game against them on Saturday. Tuesday, 9:09 pm
