  • Brian Roberts looks great off bench
    Brian Roberts scored 20 points off the bench in 30 minutes of action against the Warriors on Friday with one assist, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He made his first seven shots and has been on a roll all of the sudden, coming off a 24-point game on Wednesday. Roberts seems to have Gary Neal's (shoulder) role locked up for now and he's getting a lot of fourth quarter minutes. Fantasy owners in deep leagues should give him a look, but his value doesn't look too great beyond next week. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Canaan (ankle) will not return on Frid
    Isaiah Canaan went to the locker room on Friday and will not return.

    Advice: He attempted his free throws after what looks like a bad sprain. Jason Terry replaced him while Nick Johnson and Troy Daniels could also help out. We'll look for an update on Canaan from the team, but he could miss some time and the Rockets would be in deep trouble with Patrick Beverley (hamstring) without a target date. Worst yet, Canaan was playing well and finished with 13 points, two rebounds and three 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com

  • Cory Joseph is good to go for Friday night
    Cory Joseph (ankle) will play on Friday against the Kings.

    Advice: He suffered an ankle tweak last Friday and will return to the lineup. Joseph should get double-digit minutes tonight and maybe more because of garbage time. Rotoworld.com

  • George Hill dealing with a tear in his quad
    Pacers' head coach Frank Vogel revealed for the first time that in addition to George Hill's knee contusion, he is also dealing with a tear in his left quad and is not expected back until mid-December.

    Advice: Vogel said that the tear did not show up in the initial MRI because there was too much blood, but that is the reason Hill has been out for so long. C.J. Watson is expected to make his season debut Friday night, and it's not known exactly how that will affect Donald Sloan's minutes. However, given Sloan's solid play so far this season, he'll likely remain in the starting lineup as Watson is eased back into the rotation, and he should remain be held in standard leagues until something changes.

  • Austin Rivers in the starting lineup vs. ATL
    Austin Rivers will start at shooting guard against the Hawks on Friday night.

    Advice: He was coming off the bench with Darius Miller starting, but apparently coach Monty Williams is going to run an extremely tight rotation tonight. Eric Gordon only had a 16.1 usage while in the starting lineup before his injury, so that's probably about where Rivers will be. There is very little to like about his upside in most leagues.

  • Leandro Barbosa (knee) will play Friday
    Leandro Barbosa (knee) will play Friday vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Barbosa is averaging 6.3 points and not much else over 15.4 minutes of action off the bench this season, and he's simply not worth using in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Raymond Felton (ankle) is inactive on Friday
    Raymond Felton (ankle) is inactive on Friday night against the Raptors.

    Advice: It'll be Devin Harris handling most of the minutes at point guard while J.J. Barea will back him up. Felton has very little fantasy value right now while Harris is a solid start in some formats. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 1:52 pm
  • Leandro Barbosa is questionable for Fri
    Leandro Barbosa (knee) is questionable to face the Hornets on Friday.

    Advice: He has only been going through 3-on-3 in practice and we don't expect him to do much. It's his birthday today, but fantasy owners will not want to ride that narrative even if he plays. Barbosa has very little fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Derrick Rose scores 21 points in 28 minutes
    Derrick Rose scored 21 points in 28 minutes against the Celtics during a win on Friday with four rebounds, four assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: Of course, he wasn't unscathed in this game. Rose took a charge and was gimpy for a a couple minutes while staying on the court. He also had a minor left hand injury and the training staff was looking at it briefly. He did finish the game and for once we expect him to play against the Nets on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Rajon Rondo flirts with a triple-double
    Rajon Rondo flirted with a triple-double against the Bulls during a 109-102 loss on Friday with eight points, seven rebounds, nine assists and one steal in 33 minutes.

    Advice: He shot a putrid 4-of-13 from the field and missed both of his attempts at the line. The two misses dropped him to 32.1 percent from the line on the season while he's been much better from the field at 45.2 percent. He's obviously much better in points leagues than in standard formats. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 12:55 pm
  • Evan Turner gets some extra run
    Evan Turner played 23 minutes against the Bulls on Friday with 13 points, two rebounds, two assists and two steals.

    Advice: Jeff Green was in a little bit of foul trouble, but Turner did play well and made Doug McDermott look like a rookie a couple times. Turner is still going to need some sort of injury to the starting unit in order to have fantasy value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 12:49 pm
  • Jeff Green fouls out in 26 minutes
    Jeff Green fouled out in 26 minutes against the Bulls on Friday with 10 points, four boards, three assists and one turnover on 5-of-9 from the field.

    Advice: His fast start from a couple weeks ago is a distant memory. Green is just 1-of-17 (5.9 percent) from deep over his last five to go with averages of 16.0 points, 5.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks on 45.5 percent from the field. He's been fantastic inside the arc, so he's still worth starting in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kobe Bryant skips shootaround on Friday
    Kobe Bryant did not practice on Thursday and skipped shootaround on Friday, but he will play against the Wolves.

    Advice: Coach Byron Scott said he could manage Kobe's minutes a bit, but it still shouldn't drop him below his 35.4 per game. In an effort to save his legs, Bryant is also probably going to miss more practice than Allen Iverson, but it shouldn't affect him on the court since he doesn't do much off the ball anyway. His fantasy owners can lock him into their starting lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 12:02 pm
  • Mo Williams ready to play on Friday night
    Mo Williams (illness) will return to the lineup against the Lakers.

    Advice: He is not expected to be limited. Williams traveling with the team on Wednesday was a great sign he would be ready to go and his fantasy owners should plug him back into their lineups. Zach LaVine will take a hit while Andrew Wiggins and Corey Brewer should have less ball-handling responsibility. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Wroten (knee) out at least one week
    Tony Wroten will miss at least one week with a sprained right knee.

    Advice: He played through this injury on Wednesday and is going to be re-evaluated on Dec. 5. Wroten was turning the ball over a ton and his fantasy owners in standard leagues shouldn't have a problem cutting him. Meanwhile, K.J. McDaniels has a chance to get in the starting lineup now while Alexey Shved could get more run. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) has full contact practice
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) went through a full contact practice on Friday.

    Advice: The Heat will not commit to his status for Sunday, but this is obviously a great sign. Wade has been out for seven games with his hamstring injury and it's led to a lot of production out of Mario Chalmers in that stretch. Wade was also at 32.4 minutes per game before the injury and that is likely to drop. His owners will want to check back on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    Injured
  • Webster not going through full practice
    Martell Webster (back) is not going through a full practice on Friday.

    Advice: He is getting closer to a return and was cleared for contact last week. The Wizards have given Rasual Butler some minutes in the past few games and it's pretty clear Webster will get a sizable portion of minutes because of his shooting. We still don't have a concrete target date, so he's not worth stashing in most leagues right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Jackson, Westbrook to get minutes together
    Coach Scott Brooks said Reggie Jackson and Russell Westbrook will get "a lot of minutes" together.

    Advice: Westbrook will likely see minutes around 30, so Jackson should get a high usage in his 18 minutes or so in the second unit. Plus, it looks like Jackson will get around 10-15 minutes next to Westbrook, which puts him in the 30-minute neighborhood as well. With Kevin Durant (foot) still out, Jackson should still be a must-start guy in most formats. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:02 am
  • Cory Joseph (ankle) upgraded to probable Fri.
    Cory Joseph (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Joseph is averaging a meager 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists this season, so whether he plays or not should be of no concern to owners in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:48 am
  • Raymond Felton (ankle) could play Friday
    Raymond Felton (right ankle) went through shootaround Friday, but it will be up to head coach Rick Carlisle whether he is listed on the active roster.

    Advice: Felton has yet to suit up for a single game this season, so even if he's added to the active roster, there are no guarantees he'll step foot on the court. Even with Jameer Nelson (back) listed as out tonight, Devin Harris and J.J. Barea look like much better options than Felton. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:43 am
  • Thabo Sefolosha (illness) out Friday vs. NO
    Thabo Sefolosha (illness) will not play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: With Sefolosha out, DeMarre Carroll will get all the run he can handle and he has a favorable matchup vs. New Orleans. Carroll logged 38.7 minutes sans Thabo during his last outing, scoring 14 points (two 3-pointers), to go with three rebounds an assist, and a block, and should have similar production tonight. Think about deploying him as a low-budget play in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Smart (ankle) doubtful for Sunday
    Marcus Smart (ankle) does not think he'll be able to play Sunday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Smart is getting close to making a return, but it's not looking like Sunday will be the day. He's stuck in a reserve role, playing behind Rajon Rondo and doesn't offer enough statistically to be considered a viable option in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Derrick Rose (hamstring) listed as starter
    Derrick Rose (hamstring) is being listed in the starting lineup, and all signs are pointing towards him giving it a go Friday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: It's all but official that Rose will start Friday, and he has a favorable matchup today vs. the Celtics, so owners can go ahead and get him in their lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:38 am
  • Reggie Jackson coming off bench Friday
    Reggie Jackson will come off the bench on Friday with Russell Westbrook back in the starting lineup.

    Advice: Jackson should still get plenty of minutes and be productive, but the days of him being a No. 1 starting fantasy point guard are probably over. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:32 am
  • C.J. Watson to make debut on Friday
    C.J. Watson is expected to make his season debut on Friday after being out with a foot injury.

    Advice: The Pacers could use some help at guard and while he might eat into Donald Sloan's minutes a bit, Sloan looks to have done enough to hold the starting point guard job, at least until George Hill returns some time later in December. Rotoworld.com

  • D.J. Augustin starting again on Friday
    D.J. Augustin will start at point guard again on Friday, as Brandon Jennings sits for the third straight game with a left thumb injury.

    Advice: Augustin had 19 points and a full stat line on Wednesday and should be in for more of the same tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:26 am
  • Brandon Jennings out again on Friday
    Brandon Jennings will miss his third straight game on Friday with a left thumb injury.

    Advice: D.J. Augustin should get all he can handle again tonight and makes for an interesting daily plug-and-play. Jennings has started shooting again, so could be nearing a return, but it won't happen on Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Russell Westbrook (hand) will start Friday
    Russell Westbrook (hand) will be in the starting lineup for the Thunder on Friday vs. New York.

    Advice: Westbrook has a favorable matchup tonight vs. Jose Calderon of the Knicks, so get him active. His return will send Reggie Jackson to the bench, and his value will take a minor hit, but Jackson will still be worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:09 am
  • Gary Neal (shoulder) out Friday vs. Warriors
    Gary Neal (shoulder) will not play Friday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: His absence will translate to more minutes for Gerald Henderson and P.J. Hairston, but it was Brian Roberts who went off for a career-high 24 points in his absence on Wednesday. If you're feeling lucky, Roberts could be worth a salary-relief play in daily leagues, while Henderson should get some decent run tonight, as well. Rotoworld.com

  • Rose (hamstring) remains probable for Friday
    Derrick Rose (hamstring) will go through warm ups on Friday, and if there are no issues, he will be "good to go" according to Tom Thibodeau.

    Advice: Rose is being listed as probable and has a favorable matchup vs. the Celtics, but owners will want to check back for an official update after shootaround. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 8:46 am
  • Mo Williams (illness) questionable for Friday
    Mo Williams (illness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: If Williams is unable to go, Zach LaVine would draw the start in a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers, and would make for a decent option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Pacers waive G A.J. Price
    The Pacers have waived G A.J. Price.

    Advice: Price's second 10-day contract was up, and with Rodney Stuckey now healthy and C.J. Watson set to debut on Friday, there was no room to keep Price on the roster. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 8:14 am
  • Thabo Sefolosha (illness) is questionable
    Thabo Sefolosha (illness) is questionable to face the Pelicans on Friday.

    Advice: He missed Wednesday against the Raptors and the Hawks were ripped apart on the perimeter. If Sefolosha is out, DeMarre Carroll and Kent Bazemore could play a little more. Rotoworld.com

  • Derrick Rose (hamstring) probable for Friday
    Derrick Rose (hamstring tightness) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. Boston.

    Advice: Rose has said that he was targeting Friday, so things are looking positive towards him giving it a go. If Rose does indeed play, Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks won't be worth using in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:00 pm
  • Derrick Rose (hamstring) hopeful for Friday
    Derrick Rose (hamstring tightness) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, and said that he is hopeful he'll be able to play Friday vs. Boston.

    Advice: "If I'm ready to go [Friday], I'm ready. If not, just really pay attention to my body," said Rose. "But the plan is that I want to play. So hopefully I'll be out there playing." Rose isn't giving us much with these comments, so owners will want to check back closer to Friday's tip. If he's unable to go, Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks will split Rose's minutes, with Hinrich drawing the start. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:52 am
  • Cory Joseph questionable for Friday vs Kings
    Cory Joseph (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: Joseph is only averaging 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists this season, so Joseph's status means more to the injury-depleted Spurs than it does to fantasy owners. If Joseph is again unable to play, Manu Ginobili and Marco Belinelli would handle the ball when Tony Parker is on the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:00 am
  • Marcus Smart will not play vs Bulls Friday
    Marcus Smart (ankle) will not play against the Bulls on Friday.

    Advice: Smart had been targeting this game for his return, but was unable to finish Wednesday's practice. The rookie will likely now target a return next week, but he won't have much fantasy value upon his return. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Long range Canaan: Isaiah hits six treys
    Isaiah Canaan scored a career-high 24 points against the Kings on Wednesday with six rebounds, four assists, four steals and six 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He was open all night in easily his best game as a pro. Canaan was coming in with no momentum with only 15 points combined in his previous four games and Jason Terry was actually gaining ground on him. Considering how Patrick Beverley (hamstring) is out for a bit, Canaan is worth a look. Although, he has a bad matchup against Chris Paul on Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Reggie Jackson scores 22 points in OKC win
    The Thunder snapped their six-game losing streak on Wednesday, led by Reggie Jackson's 22 points on 10-of-18 shooting, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, eight assists and one steal.

    Advice: He turned the ball over five times, as usual, but at least he made more than half his shots tonight. Backup PG Sebastian Telfair was waived on Wednesday which suggests that Russell Westbrook (hand) might return as soon as Friday's game. Jackson will inevitably lose some minutes and offensive firepower, but he's still a must-own fantasy player even if he shifts to a bench role. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:01 pm
  • Mo Williams (illness) will travel with team
    Mo Williams (illness) will travel with the Wolves for their upcoming West Coast trip.

    Advice: Considering he has pink eye and strep throat -- two highly contagious illnesses -- Williams figures to play on Friday against the Lakers. There's not much of a reason to pick up Zach LaVine for that game. Rotoworld.com

  • D.J. Augustin scores 19 pts in start for DET
    D.J. Augustin made his second straight start on Wednesday, finishing a loss to the Clippers with 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, six assists and three turnovers.

    Advice: Augustin played 35 minutes in another fill-in start for Brandon Jennings, who remains day-to-day with a sprained thumb. This was easily D.J.'s best and most complete game of the season, and it's hard to recommend him as a pickup considering Jennings could return as soon as Friday's home game vs. Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Wroten has eight TOs, tweaks ankle
    Tony Wroten tweaked his ankle in the fourth quarter of Wednesday's loss against the Nets, finishing with 18 points, two rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and eight turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: He was able to play through the ankle tweak for the last couple minutes, but it was pretty clear he wasn't 100 percent. Considering the amount of players dealing with swelling in their ankles and missing time, his owners will want to keep an eye on him for Saturday against the Mavericks. He made 6-of-18 from the field tonight and 6-of-8 from the line, so that and eight turnovers gives him a 34.3 usage rate. The negatives are outweighing the positives in standard leagues.

  • Brian Roberts notches career-high 24 points
    Brian Roberts came off the Hornets' bench for a career-high 24 points in a loss to the Blazers on Wednesday, making 10-of-17 FGs with three 3-pointers, four rebounds and four assists in just 32 minutes of action.

    Advice: Gary Neal was out with a shoulder injury so Roberts got extra playing time, and he made the most of the opportunity. This is just his fourth double-digit scoring game of the season and he's only worth a look in daily leagues while Neal is day-to-day. Rotoworld.com

  • Cory Joseph out Wednesday w/ sprained ankle
    Cory Joseph (ankle) will not play vs. the Pacers on Wednesday, as expected.

    Advice: Joseph was doubtful to play but he remains day-to-day, so he could be back as soon as Friday's game vs. the Kings. The Spurs don't have a pure backup PG but they're comfortable handing the ball to Marco Belinelli and Manu Ginobili. Rotoworld.com

  • Mo Williams (illness) will not play vs. Bucks
    Mo Williams (illness) will not play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's missed practice the past two days and has been sick since Sunday, so this is a surprise. Williams is dealing with strep throat and pink eye, which shouldn't keep him out much longer. Zach LaVine is going to get all the minutes he can handle. The Wolves might need Corey Brewer and Andrew Wiggins to handle the ball more, too. Rotoworld.com

  • Thabo Sefolosha (illness) won't play vs. TOR
    Thabo Sefolosha (illness) will not play on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's the time of year when "flu-like symptoms" make their rounds throughout the NBA, and Sefolosha is the latest victim. He's playing a small role off the Hawks' bench with Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll both healthy, so his absence shouldn't cause any problems for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com

  • Leandro Barbosa (knee) won't play Wednesday
    Leandro Barbosa (knee) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Magic.

    Advice: This is curious since coach Steve Kerr said that Barbosa could have played more than four minutes on Tuesday, but was only limited for matchup purposes. Regardless, the Warriors' veteran combo guard doesn't have reliable value unless injuries thin out the backcourt rotation. Brandon Rush should earn a few extra minutes in Barbosa's absence.

  • Brandon Jennings (right thumb) out again
    Brandon Jennings (thumb) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: It'll be D.J. Augustin in the starting lineup again tonight. He struggled in a favorable matchup against the Bucks on Tuesday, so a matchup with Chris Paul doesn't look great on the surface. Still, he saw 37 minutes last night, which makes him a fantasy option. Spencer Dinwiddie will get some run, too. Rotoworld.com

  • Raymond Felton out Wed. with ankle injury
    Raymond Felton (right ankle) will not play vs. the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Jameer Nelson (back) was also a late scratch, which leaves Devin Harris and J.J. Barea with significant roles in the backcourt. Monta Ellis will also assume more ball-handling duties, giving him a temporary boost, and it will be all hands on deck for the Dallas backcourt. Felton is day-to-day but even at full strength he's a dubious fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:59 pm
  • Barbosa's minutes low because of matchup
    Leandro Barbosa (knee) played four minutes on Tuesday because of the matchup not because of his injury.

    Advice: He was questionable last night, but coach Steve Kerr wanted to get Brandon Rush some minutes. Barbosa will not have much fantasy value while Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Smart couldn't finish practice
    Marcus Smart (ankle) was unable to finish practice on Wednesday.

  • Mo Williams still sick, iffy vs. Bucks
    Mo Williams missed shootaround Wednesday and is a game-time decision against the Bucks.

    Advice: Williams has been sick for several days now and while it's possible he'll play tonight, it would not be surprising to see rookie Zach LaVine running the point for the Wolves tonight. On a side note, the Wolves will be wearing pink shoe laces as a tribute to Thaddeus Young's mother, who passed away from cancer recently. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade practices, 'hopes' for Sunday
    Dwyane Wade, who has missed seven straight games with a hamstring injury, was taking part in "explosive drill practice" on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Heat are off until Sunday at New York and if Wade is doing those kind of drills, you'd have to think he might be ready to go four days from now. He says he's "hoping" to play on Sunday, but there's no way to tell given Wade's injury history. Rotoworld.com

    Marcus Smart, who has been out with an ankle injury, is expected to practice on Wednesday, according to coach Brad Stevens.

  • Derrick Rose (hamstring) rested as precaution
    Derrick Rose (hamstring tightness) sat out the second half of Tuesday's game as a precaution, and he "didn't feel anything pop or pull" prior to his exit.

    Advice: Tom Thibodeau asked Rose to sit out the second half and Rose agreed. The Bulls' former MVP was very tentative during the first half, as he was during Monday's game, but Thibodeau is hopeful that a few days of rest will have Rose ready to go for Friday's game in Boston. When asked if Rose would require an MRI, Thibs replied, "I don’t believe so. I think he's fine." Fantasy owners have played this game long enough to distrust the Bulls' injury updates, however, and we're unlikely to learn Rose's status until close to tip-off on Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Rivers logs 27 minutes in bench role
    Austin Rivers didn't start at SG on Tuesday, instead coming off the bench for eight points, three rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Darius Miller started tonight but did absolutely nothing to keep the job, so there's still a chance Rivers will earn the SG job with Tyreke Evans moving back to SF. Eric Gordon's indefinite absence with a separated shoulder makes Rivers a low-risk gamble worth taking in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:35 pm
  • D.J. Augustin w/ 11 pts, 7 assists as starter
    D.J. Augustin started on Tuesday with Brandon Jennings (thumb) unavailable, notching 11 points, one 3-pointer, two rebounds, seven assists and one steal in a loss vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Augustin shot 4-of-11 from the field and turned the ball over five times in 37 minutes, so it was a flawed performance in his first start of the season. Jennings is questionable to return Wednesday vs. the Clippers, so owners targeting Augustin for short-term value should keep a close eye on Detroit's injury report. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:58 pm
  • Derrick Rose exits Tuesday w/ tight hamstring
    Derrick Rose will not return to Tuesday's game due to left hamstring tightness.

    Advice: Rose's left hamstring caused him to miss four games prior to his return on Monday, and he didn't last long before going back on the injury report. The daily guessing game about his status will continue on Friday when the Bulls play in Boston. Considering the Bulls' protective stance regarding their former MVP, and the fact that hamstring injuries are easy to aggravate, we're not optimistic that he'll be in uniform vs. Rajon Rondo and the Celtics. Check back for updates on Tuesday, and anticipate Kirk Hinrich starting at PG if Rose misses more games. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:26 pm
  • Leandro Barbosa (knee) plays four minutes
    Leandro Barbosa (knee) played four minutes off the bench in Tuesday's game, scoring two points with two rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: He's coming off a minor knee sprain and the injury isn't a concern going forward, but LB's playing time is too limited for use outside of the deepest leagues. Ignore him while Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Derrick Rose (hamstring) starting vs. Nuggets
    Derrick Rose (hamstring) will play on Tuesday, as expected.

    Advice: He was technically listed as 'probable' and the Bulls have been understandably protective of Rose early in the season, so fantasy owners are wise to check his status before every game. He scored 18 points in a somewhat passive performance on Monday and we can only hope he'll continue to build on that performance without any health-related setbacks. Rotoworld.com

  • Cory Joseph (ankle) doubtful for Wednesday
    Cory Joseph (ankle) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: If Joseph is unable to play, Manu Ginobili will be asked to do a little more as the Spurs backup point guard, and Tony Parker will see some extended minutes. Joseph is averaging 7.8 points and 2.1 assists through 17.5 minutes of action this season, and he can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:17 pm
  • Cory Joseph (ankle) doubtful for Wednesday
    Cory Joseph (sprained left ankle) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Joseph has been targeting Wednesday as his potential return date but the Spurs' training staff must not be on the same page. If he does sit out, expect guys like Manu Ginobili, Marco Belinelli and even Boris Diaw to handle the ball more when Tony Parker isn't on the court. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Jennings (thumb) will not play Tues.
    Brandon Jennings (thumb) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks, and D.J. Augustin will draw the start.

    Advice: Augustin will draw his first start of the season, and he could make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Spencer Dinwiddie will also see some extended minutes off the bench, but Augustin offers the most upside. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with Augustin, but his value will likely be short-lived as Jennings shouldn't be out very long with a sprained thumb. Rotoworld.com

  • Mo Williams (illness) doesn't practice Tues.
    Mo Williams (illness) was not able to practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: This is the second consecutive practice that Williams has sat out, and it's not known whether he'll be able to suit up for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks. If he's unable to go Zach LaVine would get all the minutes he can handle, and he could make for a nice low-budget option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Scott may try to shorten Kobe Bryant's PT
    Coach Byron Scott said that he may try to trim a couple minutes off Kobe Bryant's current minutes allotment, as Kobe has been struggling with fatigue during the second half of games.

    Advice: Kobe is currently averaging 35.7 minutes per game, but is also shooting a career-worst 38.1 percent from the field. Scott is attributing some of those misses to fatigue, and while a minor reduction in minutes would have a minimal impact on Kobe's overall numbers, it could have a positive effect on his field goal percentage. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:11 pm
  • Gary Neal (shoulder) doubtful for Wednesday
    Gary Neal (sprained left shoulder) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. Portland.

    Advice: If Neal is unable to go, his minutes would be split up between Gerald Henderson, Brian Roberts, and potentially P.J. Hairston if he's able to suit up. However, none of those guys make for a very attractive option in daily leagues, nor are they worthy of a pickup in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Derrick Rose (hamstring) probable for Tuesday
    Derrick Rose (hamstring) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Owners will want to check back for an official update on Rose's status as we draw closer to Tuesday's tip, but it's looking like he'll try and give it a go. Rose is coming off an 18-point outing vs. Utah, and has a favorable matchup tonight against the Nuggets. If he plays, Aaron Brooks won't be worth using in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:21 pm
  • Raymond Felton tweaks ankle, not serious
    Raymond Felton tweaked his right ankle during Tuesday's practice, but according to head coach Rick Carlisle, the minor tweak is not considered serious.

    Advice: Raymond Felton is fighting for minutes with Devin Harris, Jameer Nelson, Monta Ellis, and J.J. Barea, and he wasn't even able to get off the bench during his last outing. Felton should remain on the waiver wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:04 pm
  • Leandro Barbosa (knee) expected to play Tues.
    Leandro Barbosa (knee) is expected to suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Barbosa is averaging just 6.7 points over 16 minutes of action off the Warriors bench, so this news doesn't mean much for owners in standard leagues. Barbosa is only going to have value if there's an injury to one of the Warriors starting guards, and he can safely be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Rivers coming off bench for Pelicans
    Tyreke Evans will start at shooting guard for the Pelicans on Tuesday, while Darius Miller will start at small forward, leaving Austin Rivers coming off the bench.

    Advice: Miller will start at small forward and Tyreke Evans will slide over to SG. Evans has been great at small forward, so owners have to hope the move doesn't mess up his mojo. Rivers was looking like a nice plug-and-play option, but loses some luster off the bench. Miller is now a deep sleeper for success in the absence of Eric Gordon, who is out indefinitely with a shoulder injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Jennings not likely for Tuesday night
    Brandon Jennings says he can't shoot due to his sprained left thumb and is not expected to play on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's yet to be officially ruled out, but owners should assume he's not going to play against the Bucks. And if that holds true, D.J. Augustin will likely start in his place tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) ruled out for Tuesday
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not play against the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: This will be his seventh game out of the lineup and at this rate he's going to play even less games than his 54 from last season. Wade does not have a timetable to return and his owners should have him benched until he's back on the court. Mario Chalmers has really stepped up lately while the Heat will use plenty of two-point guard lineups. Rotoworld.com

  • Thibodeau says Rose not real comfortable
    Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said that Derrick Rose (hamstring) is not real comfortable right now.

    Advice: Rose scored 18 points with five assists, one steal, and three 3-pointers during Monday's win over the Jazz, but will be listed as day-to-day for Tuesday's game against Denver. "I thought he did a lot of good things," Thibodeau said. "You could see he's not real comfortable with the ball yet, but that will come. When Derrick strings some games together, he's going to take off." We'll update Rose's status as soon as possible, but Aaron Brooks would get a value boost if D-Rose is unable to play Tuesday.

  • Felton a DNP-CD on Monday
    Raymond Felton returned from his suspension but did not play on Monday due to coach's decision.

    Advice: Felton will only be on the fantasy radar if the Mavs suffer a number of injuries. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Wroten keeps usage rate rolling
    Tony Wroten made 7-of-18 from the field for 20 points during a 114-104 loss to the Blazers on Monday with two rebounds, nine assists, three steals, one block and three turnovers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: The 76ers were actually leading at halftime, but they totally fell apart in the third quarter. Wroten has been a huge part of the offense and his usage hasn't really taken a huge hit next to Michael Carter-Williams -- it is down, though. His shooting woes and turnovers severely cap his upside in standard leagues, but those in points formats could use him. Rotoworld.com

  • Canaan quiet in start for Beverley
    Isaiah Canaan was quiet in another start for Patrick Beverley (hamstring) on Monday, scoring seven points with three assists and a steal in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Canaan hit 2-of-8 shots with a three and on the whole he doesn't have any real fantasy value. If you want to give him a desperation look or use him in DFS games, he's probably a coin flip to pay off at best. Beverley has about a week on his initial timetable. Rotoworld.com

  • Brian Roberts gets some extra minutes
    Brian Roberts played 27 minutes against the Clippers on Monday with 11 points, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: The Hornets are running out of options at the wing, so now they're playing two point guards at their guard spots at times. Roberts doesn't really have much of of a fantasy game besides terrific foul shooting, so he's not a great speculative add until we get more information on Gary Neal (shoulder). Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:57 pm
  • Gary Neal out for game w/ shoulder contusion
    Gary Neal suffered a left shoulder contusion against the Clippers on Monday and will not return.

    Advice: He was in a lot of pain and was in a bad mood as he went to the locker room. Neal looked like he didn't want to come out, but the team will likely give him an MRI. Brian Roberts will likely get some extra run in a two-PG lineup. He finished with eight points and one rebound in 14 minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Ray Felton is active on Monday night
    Raymond Felton will not play against the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: He is eligible to return, but the Mavericks don't need him. They've been one of the best offenses in the history of the NBA, so why mess with a good thing? Felton has very little fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:28 pm
  • Isaiah Canaan will start on Monday night
    Isaiah Canaan will start on Monday night against the Knicks.

    Advice: It will be his seventh start of the season, but he hasn't done much in his previous starts with averages of 11.5 points, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.3 triples. The triples make him someone worth owning in deeper leagues right now, especially with Pat Beverley (hamstring) possible out for a while. Rotoworld.com

  • Brown will keep trying Wroten as starter
    Coach Brett Brown said he will continue trying the starting backcourt of Tony Wroten and Michael-Carter Williams.

    Advice: It has been a nightmare so far. The 76ers just can't get any any sort of production in their backcourt and their second unit has been even worse with Alexey Shved missing open shots all season. Wroten's negatives outweigh his positives. Rotoworld.com

  • Leandro Barbosa is questionable for Tues
    Leandro Barbosa (knee) is questionable to play on Tuesday vs. Miami and went through a light practice on Monday.

    Advice: He dodged a bullett after a scary knee injury over the weekend and could be back. Considering he's had an ACL tear in his career, the Warriors are certainly going to be cautious. He's far to risky to use in almost any league. Rotoworld.com

  • Kobe Bryant could miss some practice
    Coach Byron Scott said he plans to rest Kobe Bryant in practice instead of cutting his minutes in minutes in games.

    Advice: The Lakers really do not have a choice right now with Xavier Henry (Achilles) likely done for the season. Bryant has been taking shots at a ridiculous clip and is playing 35.7 minutes per game, but he's shooting a career-worst 38.1 percent from the field. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:13 pm
  • Mo Williams misses practice on Monday
    Mo Williams missed practice on Monday due to an illness.

    Advice: The Wolves don't play until Wednesday when they'll host the Bucks, so Williams should be well enough to give it a go for that contest. They are headed to a three-game week, so Williams isn't the strongest play in the world in weekly leagues anyway. If for some reason he is out, Zach LaVine would likely get minutes in the high 30s.

  • Russell Westbrook could return on Friday
    Russell Westbrook (hand) could return to Friday's game against the Knicks.

    Advice: He went through some contact in practce on Monday. Last week he wasn't supposed to be re-evaluated until the coming weekend, but he's apparently doing much better than expected. Fantasy owners in weekly leagues will still probably want to bench Westbrook because the Thunder have no games after Friday this week. Reggie Jackson will lose some value, but he should still be worth owning in just about all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Raymond Felton's ankle now fully healthy
    Raymond Felton (ankle) said that he's fully healthy following his suspension.

    Advice: It's not a lock that Felton will return on Monday, but he's healthy enough to do so and his suspension has ended. Even if active, Felton has a lot of work to do as he's currently at the bottom of the point guard depth chart behind Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris and J.J. Barea. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:19 am
  • Austin Rivers looks like Pelicans starting SG
    Austin Rivers looks like the Pelicans starting shooting guard with Eric Gordon (shoulder) out indefinitely.

    Advice: Rivers had eight points (two triples), three rebounds, two assists and a steal in 33 minutes against the Jazz after Gordon was hurt on Saturday, and the most important takeaway was the fact that Rivers received the lion's share of minutes at shooting guard. Even as a speculative add, Rivers should be owned in all leagues with 12-plus teams. Rotoworld.com

  • Wroten (stomach virus) probable on Monday
    Tony Wroten (stomach virus) is probable to play against Portland on Monday.

    Advice: Wroten missed shootaround, but he's already being called probable for Monday's contest, an indication it's nothing severe or extreme. If Wroten isn't able to go, look for Michael Carter-Williams to play a little more with guys like Hollis Thompson and K.J. McDaniels chipping in, too. Rotoworld.com

  • Leonadro Barbosa questionable for Tuesday
    Leandro Barbosa (knee) is questionable to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: Barbosa left Sunday's game with a sprained knee, but he said afterward that it's not a serious concern. Expect the Warriors to proceed with caution with Barbosa, and it wouldn't be a surprise if he misses Tuesday's game to get him some extra rest. Shaun Livingston should see a small bump in minutes if that happens. Rotoworld.com

    Jeff Green doesn't want to be traded by the Celtics.

    Advice: A report emerged from CSNNE that Green's trade value was as strong (if not stronger) than Rajon Rondo's, and through a couple of miscommunications, Green interpreted that someone had authored a column on his desire to be traded. Although he's frustrated by the losing, Green is not interested in being dealt. "Before you start, I just wanted to clear the air about some BS rumor that came out," Green said. "I said that I was frustrated with losing, not frustrated with the team," he added. Green also said he hasn't been "happy like this in years." Rotoworld.com

  • Cory Joseph aiming to return on Wednesday
    Cory Joseph (ankle) is aiming to return on Wednesday against the Pacers.

    Advice: Joseph's ankle swelled after injuring it on Friday, but he thinks almost a week off will be enough to get back out there. Unless he has a setback, it sounds like his absence will last all of one game. Rotoworld.com

  • Leandro Barbosa (knee) downplays injury
    Leandro Barbosa (hyperextended knee) wrote after Sunday's game that he "had no serious injury, just a bit of pain."

    Advice: He attempted to continue playing after the hyperextension but the Warriors' training staff wisely pulled him from the game to prevent further injury. It doesn't sound like he'll miss any time, but as a precaution we'll list him as questionable for Tuesday's game. Rotoworld.com

  • Reggie Jackson barely misses triple-double
    Reggie Jackson fell just two assists shy of a triple-double vs. the Warriors on Sunday, scoring 22 points with 11 rebounds and eight assists in 36 minutes of action.

    Advice: He shot just 10-of-26 from the field and his FG percentage continues to be a minor drag, but he compensated with one 3-pointer, one steal and a relatively stingy two turnovers. He may shift to a bench role upon Russell Westbrook's return but he's played too well to fall much below 32 minutes per game, even when OKC is at full strength. Rotoworld.com

  • Evan Turner solid, but plays just 14 minutes
    Evan Turner provided a spark for Boston's second unit with 10 points, five rebounds, three assists and one steal in just 14 minutes.

    Advice: Turner deserves some plaudits for embracing a reserve role with the Celts, but his fantasy value is severely limited by just 21.2 minutes per game. He belongs on the waiver wire, especially since his role will shrink further once Marcus Smart (ankle) gets back on the court. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:26 pm
  • Leandro Barbosa sprains knee, won't return
    Leandro Barbosa suffered a sprained right knee during Sunday's game, and he will not return.

    Advice: Barbosa didn't immediately leave the game, staying in to shoot free throws and play a few possessions, but he was ruled out upon further examination. Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala should get more playing time in his absence, but fantasy owners should consider him questionable to play Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Smart (ankle) hopes to practice next week
    Marcus Smart (ankle) is hopeful he'll be able to return to practice next week, but his status for Friday's game vs. the Bulls remains unknown.

    Advice: Even if Smart is able to suit up for Friday's game, he'll likely have a minutes restriction, making him an unattractive play in most leagues. He's averaging 6.8 points, 1.2 assists, and 1.2 steals on the season, and he's just not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) out Sunday vs. CHA
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: That's six games and counting for Wade, and he remains without a definitive return date. Mario Chalmers has been the main beneficiary of Wade's absence, and he's currently averaging 19.3 points, 5.3 assists, 1.8 steals, and 1.3 three-pointers with the starting unit.

  • Brandon Jennings (thumb) questionable Tuesday
    Brandon Jennings (thumb) did not practice on Sunday, and is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: The good news is x-rays were negative, so Jennings is just dealing with a sprain. If he's unable to go on Tuesday, D.J.

    Jeff Green said that his frustration level was at an "all-time high" after Friday's loss to Memphis.

    Advice: "[Friday] we let them get whatever they wanted," Green said. "So we deserved to lose." He has been playing well this year, leading the Celtics in scoring at 18.4 points per game, but is reasonably dissatisfied with his team's 4-7 record. Green can opt for free agency this summer and it's not implausible that Boston could trade him during the season -- a league executive told CSNNE.com that the market for Green is strong, "if not stronger," than it is for Rajon Rondo.

  • Austin Rivers scores eight points
    Austin Rivers played 33 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday with eight points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Tony Wroten had a rough outing as the starting shooting guard against the Knicks on Saturday, making 2-of-9 from the field for five points, two rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four turnovers.

    Advice: The rest of the 76ers had just six assists and their guards look awful right now. Coach Brett Brown is getting a little too cute and he really needs to bring Wroten off the bench to help the second unit. Wroten's shooting woes will keep him from being a top-140 guy in standards.

  • Mo Williams has 11 points, 12 dimes in defeat
    Mo Williams continued his strong play as the Wolves' starting PG on Saturday, handing out 12 assists with 11 points on 5-of-16 shooting in 35 minutes.

    Advice: The field goal percentage wasn't great, but Mo chipped in a 3-pointer and he's really found a groove since overtaking Zach LaVine for the starting job in Ricky Rubio's absence. He's averaging 13.3 points, 1.7 triples, 1.8 rebounds and 9.7 assists in the past three games. LaVine had just five points in 13 minutes off the bench and it looks like Williams will be a reliable fantasy PG until Rubio returns, which won't be until late December at the earliest. Rotoworld.com

  • Cory Joseph (ankle) will not play vs. Nets
    Cory Joseph (ankle) will not play against the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Spurs are without a backup point guard, but Manu Ginobili should help out there. That should also open up some minutes on the wing for Danny Green and Austin Daye. Joseph's injury doesn't sound serious. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Wroten starting again on Friday
    Michael Carter-Williams, Tony Wroten, Luc Mbah a Moute, Nerlens Noel and Henry Sims are starting again on Saturday.

    Advice: They had the same lineup on Friday night, but we thought we'd just pass this information along. Wroten should have decent value in whatever his role is, but the awful shooting and high turnovers has ruined his value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Marcus Smart (ankle) will not play on Sunday against the Blazers.

    Advice: It seems hard to believe that he is even close to a return after an ugly ankle injury.

    Kobe Bryant (rest) did not practice on Saturday.

    Advice: Coach Byron Scott said he had him rest for heavy legs. "He’s such a workaholic that sometimes it can hurt you more than help you. So I told him ‘I’ll see you Sunday,‘" Scott said.

  • Russell Westbrook has non-contact practice
    Russell Westbrook (hand) went through portions of Saturday's non-contact practice.

    Advice: He is still in the rehab process and there is no timetable for his return just yet. Westbrook will be re-evaluated later this month and he could be back in the lineup soon after than.

  • Cory Joseph and Matt Bonner are doubtful
    Cory Joseph (ankle) and Matt Bonner (illness) are doubtful to face the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Spurs are going to be in a little bit of trouble tonight with no backup point guard. In previous instances, they have used Manu Ginobili as the primary ball handler in the second unit and that should be the case tonight. Austin Daye may also get some extra playing time. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade out, Norris Cole doubtful vs. ORL
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will miss his fifth consecutive game on Saturday.

    Advice: Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier should get all the minutes they can handle, especially with Norris Cole (hand) also doubtful to suit up. Miami's lack of depth will likely require bench guys like Shannon Brown, Danny Granger and James Ennis to step into significant roles as the Heat look to avoid their fifth loss in six games. Wade did some light work during shootaround and is questionable for Sunday's home game. Rotoworld.com

  • Mo Williams scores 15 points against SA
    Mo Williams made 6-of-14 from the field for 15 points with two rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: It seems clear coach Flip Saunders isn't going to flip-flop on his starting point guard and Mo is here to stay. He should be able to score in the teens with some dimes, treys and steals now that the Wolves are currently missing 80 percent of their opening night starting lineup. Williams is worth owning in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Gary Neal scores 17 points in return
    Gary Neal scored 17 points in his return from a concussion on Friday, hitting 6-of-11 shots (including a three) with one rebound and one assist in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Neal has been a 12-14 team producer when on the floor this season, averaging 12.6 points with 1.2 threes, 3.1 boards and 90 percent free throws on the year. Rotoworld.com

  • D.J. Augustin squanders his chance
    D.J. Augustin scored 14 points with five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer on 4-of-17 from the field against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: He picked up some extra minutes because Brandon Jennings (thumb) suffered an injury, Jennings could miss time, but he didn't break anything and it's possible he is ready for Tuesday against the Bucks. Considering how that game is a few days away, there's little reason to speculatively add Augustin. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Jennings hyperextends left thumb
    Brandon Jennings suffered a hyperextended left thumb in Friday's loss to the Hawks.

    Advice: It kept his minutes down to just 23 tonight in his worst game in a while, scoring nine points with two rebounds, two assists and one steal. It's unclear how severe his injury is and his owners should just sit tight. If you have some dead weight and want to add D.J. Augustin, it's not a terrible idea. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Wroten has decent game against Suns
    Tony Wroten played well in a start at shooting guard against the Suns on Friday, making 6-of-8 from the field for 13 points with two rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes.

    Advice: He had a decent start in this game and continues to attack the rim. Wroten's usage and assist percentages look like they're clearly going to drop, so he's unlikely to be a top-150 player in standard leagues -- he wasn't already because of the turnovers and poor shooting. His fantasy owners should probably look elsewhere. Rotoworld.com

  • Joseph leaves game with ankle sprain
    Cory Joseph left Friday's game with a mild left ankle sprain and did not return.

    Advice: Joseph has played well in a backup role but as usual if he misses any time the rest of the rotation will absorb the minutes without a clear winner. He walked out of the arena under his own power and wasn't ready to rule himself out for Saturday's game. Rotoworld.com

  • Westbrook to go through non-contact drills
    Russell Westbrook (hand) will go through some non-contact portions of Saturday's practice, and he'll be re-evaluated on Nov. 29.

    Advice: Westbrook has been progressing well, without any setbacks, and going through non-contact portions of practice will be the next step. Westbrook's initial timetable has him returning Dec. 2 vs. the Pelicans at the earliest, but we'll have a more firm date after he is re-evaluated. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Thabo Sefolosha to the bench
    Thabo Sefolosha will come off the bench against the Pistons on Friday with DeMarre Carroll back from injury.

    Advice: Despite Thabo being known as a strong defender, the Hawks were thumped on defense in their last two games. Sefolosha doesn't have much fantasy value and he didn't do much while Carroll was out anyway. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Wroten starting, Hollis Thompson benched
    Tony Wroten will start at shooting guard against the Suns on Friday next to Michael Carter-Williams, Luc Mbah a Moute, Nerlens Noel and Henry Sims.

    Advice: Coach Brett Brown has flip-flopped all year on what he wants to do with Wroten. Wroten and Michael Carter-Williams have been turning over the ball a lot and their second unit is going to miss playmakers -- Wroten will still get a lot of run with the second unit during the game. His usage rate has been fairly high next to MCW so far anyway, so he should have similar value. Considering his inefficiency and turnover issues, he hasn't turned in top-200 value. Rotoworld.com

    Gary Neal (concussion) has been cleared and will play against the Magic on Friday.

  • Rajon Rondo won't be traded now?
    Rival executives have said general manager Danny Ainge won't trade Rajon Rondo.

    Advice: "They’re definitely bravely saying they won’t trade him at this point," said one general manager. Obviously Ainge has not be shy about acquiring assets, so there's a strong possibility the point guard is dealt. The Celtics have a decision on their hands on whether or not they want to give Rondo a max deal, which will ultimately decide Rondo's fate this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Martell Webster has been cleared for contact
    Martell Webster (back) has been cleared for contact in practice.

    Advice: He's had three back surgeries in his last four years, so the Wizards won't be in a rush to get him into game action. The 27-year-old swingman also said he expects to retire at 30, so the team probably won't want to give him too many minutes upon his return. He and Otto Porter should cancel each other out in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Watson still out for a while
    C.J. Watson (foot) is not expected to return until after Thanksgiving.

    Advice: He doesn't have a timetable to return and we might not see him in game action until December. Considering how Watson has dealt with foot issues before, the team will likely manage his minutes for a while -- Rodney Stuckey also aggravating his foot injury doesn't help. There is not enough incentive to stash him in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    George Hill (knee) is still not close to returning and won't be back until mid-December, as expected.

    Advice: Beat writer Candace Buckner adds it is "not the first of the month" either. Hill should be a big part of the offense and is a decent stash, but obviously the uncertain return date could make it tough to do so. Expect Donald Sloan to have a couple more weeks of value. Rotoworld.com

  • Brown wants to play Wroten and MCW together
    Tony Wroten has been moved into a sixth man role for the 76ers with the return of Michael Carter-Williams, but that doesn't mean head coach Brett Brown doesn't want to play the two together for extended stretches.

    Advice: "I think for balance purposes, that’s how it needs to be," Brown said of his decision to bring Wroten off the bench. "Because [Wroten and MCW are] our best players, they need to be on the court… Inevitably it’s the direction we’re going to have to grow." Wroten's numbers are down since MCW's return, but he was still able to score 21 points off the bench, to go with seven assists and a steal during Wednesday's loss. His value will take a bit of a hit coming off the bench, but Wroten is still going to be worth owning in standard leagues. Just know that he's shooting 42.0 percent from the field, and 62.0 percent from the charity stripe on 7.2 attempts per game. Rotoworld.com

  • Gary Neal (concussion) probable for Friday
    Gary Neal (concussion) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Neal still needs to pass the leagues' concussion protocol, but it's looking like he's very close to making a return. He's averaging 12.2 points and 1.2 three-pointers per game this season, so he's worth a look for owners seeking a 3-point specialist upon his return. Just know that he's also shooting 39.8 percent from the field. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) out Thursday vs. LAC
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: This marks the fourth consecutive game Wade will be sidelined with this hamstring injury, and Mario Chalmers will continue to start as long as Wade is out. Chalmers has been great with the starting unit, averaging 20.0 points, 5.0 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game, and he should be in all active lineups on a night with just two games being played.

  • Marcus Smart (ankle) doubtful for Sunday
    Marcus Smart (ankle) said that he doubts he'll play Sunday, and he remains without a definitive return date.

    Advice: "I couldn’t really tell you [an expected return date]. It just depends," Smart said. "One day my body feels good, probably one day it doesn’t. I’ve got to listen to my body." Smart was able to do some straight-line movement during Thursday's practice, but still is unable to do anything side-to-side. He may be able resume practicing next week, and after Sunday's game vs. Portland the Celtics don't play again until Friday, Nov. 28. We'll consider Smart questionable for that one, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. However, with averages of just 6.8 points, 1.2 assists, and 1.2 steals, he’s not a viable option in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Rajon Rondo's ankle 'sore,' but will be fine
    Rajon Rondo said his ankle was "sore" after rolling it Wednesday night, but he's expected to be fine.

    Advice: This seems like a very minor thing, and Rondo has been known to play through nicks and bruises. We'll be monitoring Rondo's status leading up to Friday's tip, but it would be quite shocking if he were sidelined for that one. Rondo is currently averaging 10.4 points, 8.0 rebounds, and a league-leading 11.8 assists on the year. So far, the only detriments to his value are his horrid free throw shooting (40 percent), and high turnover rate (4.0 turnovers a game). But as a nightly triple-double threat, owners don't have much to complain about. Rotoworld.com

  • Mo Williams to start for the Timberwolves?
    Mo Williams looked great in a starting role on Wednesday and his play has head coach Flip Saunders thinking about sticking with him in that role.

    Advice: With rookie Zach LaVine scuffling, Williams provided the Wolves with a spark during their win over the Knicks on Wednesday. "Big difference," Kevin Martin said. "When Mo came in and got me going. He’s just a veteran point guard in the backcourt with you. He knows your spots." Flip Saunders used the phrase "big difference" to describe the swap of Williams and LaVine in the starting lineup, so fantasy owners in all leagues will want to take a flier on Williams while Ricky Rubio (ankle) is out.

  • Rival GM thinks Rajon Rondo will be traded
    A rival general manager said that he thinks Rajon Rondo will be traded this season.

    Advice: Danny Ainge is publicly saying that he isn't going to trade Rondo, but the star guard headed into unrestricted free agency after the season, the rebuilding Celtics have to at least entertain the thought. "They're definitely bravely saying they won't trade him at this point," said a rival general manager, who then added, "I definitely think it's the right thing to trade him. I think Danny knows it." Rondo's free throw percentage leaves a little something to be desired, but his fantasy owners have to be happy with the fact that he's a triple-double threat on any given night. Rotoworld.com

  • Kobe Bryant scores 29 on 28 FGA, 10 FTA
    Kobe Bryant made 10-of-28 from the field and 8-of-10 from the line for 29 points during a 98-92 win over the Rockets on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

    Advice: He started off fine making 6-of-11 from the field before halftime, but things turned sour in the second half with miss after miss. Bryant's usage actually dropped to 37.3 after tonight with his 36.8 in the win, but he's still on pace to have one of the highest usage rates ever -- he has the record of 38.7 in 2005-06. Expect Kobe to take plenty of shots against the Mavericks on Friday. Rotoworld.com

    Brandon Jennings hit just 7-of-19 shots and 1-of-9 3-pointers for 19 points, seven assists and two steals on Wednesday.

    Advice: Had he not been firing up the threes, his line would have been a lot better, but whatever was holding Jennings back early in the season has been fixed. Jennings has been playing well for 10 straight games after struggling mightily in his first two of the season. Rotoworld.com

    Jeff Green hit just 5-of-13 shots and missed all four of his 3-point attempts, but finished with 11 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's win over the Sixers.

    Advice: Green was on a tear coming in, scoring 28 in his previous game, and while we were expecting a little more against the Sixers, it's hard to complain about a double-double. Like teammate Jared Sullinger, Green has scored in double figures in every game this season, and is averaging 20 points, five rebounds, 1.1 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.9 3-pointers on the season, making him one of the best value picks in fantasy thus far.

  • Martell Webster's (back) rehab 'on schedule'
    Martell Webster (back surgery) said he's "right on schedule," which indicates he could return in late November.

    Advice: The last report we heard was that Webster was making minimal progress in his rehab, so this is a very encouraging update. A return in December seems more likely, as Washington won't take any chances with his health, and either way he's a marginal fantasy option with Bradley Beal (wrist) back in the lineup. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) doubtful for Thursday
    Dwyane Wade (left hamstring) is doubtful to play on Thursday night against the Clippers.

    Advice: This would be his fourth game out of the lineup and there's a chance he misses some time over the weekend, as well. It's worth mentioning his left leg has been worse than his right and he's needed his left knee drained multiple times over the past few seasons. Mario Chalmers has benefited and will be worth using in all leagues. James Ennis, Shabazz Napier and Norris Cole also benefit. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) limited in practice
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, and should be considered questionable for Thursday's game.

    Advice: Wade's goal of playing every game this season was quickly shattered last week when he tweaked his hamstring so it's not surprising to see the Heat exercise caution with him. If he ends up sitting on Thursday, Mario Chalmers will likely draw another start and is worth a look in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: This is excellent news for the rookie, as his ankle has been healing rapidly. Smart has been able to participate in certain drills, but it is understandable if the Celtics are cautious with him.

    Advice: He is still dealing with symptoms and will still have to pass the NBA's concussion protocol once he is feeling better. Neal has been a spark off of the Hornet's bench this season and when he returns he will be worth a look for owners in need of 3-pointers. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) is out Wednesday and P.J.

  • Russell Westbrook shoots right-handed Tuesday
    Russell Westbrook went through a light workout on Tuesday that included shots with his surgically-repaired right hand.

    Advice: Westbrook had been limited to left-hand activities, at least during publicly-available practices. He's expected to be re-evaluated on Nov. 29 and his return is likely at least two weeks away, but his ability to catch passes and shoot right-handed suggests his recovery is on target. According to his initial timetable the earliest he might return is Dec. 2 vs. the Pelicans in New Orleans, but we'll know more after he meets with doctors in late November. Rotoworld.com

  • Reggie Jackson held in check Tuesday vs. Utah
    Reggie Jackson had three rebounds and handed out seven assists vs. the Jazz on Tuesday, but he scored just 10 points on 4-of-13 FGs and 1-of-1 FTs.

    Advice: Trey Burke isn't known for his lock-down defense but he gave Jackson fits tonight, and OKC's entire offense was out of synch as they finished a combined 30-of-84 from the field (35.7 percent). R-Jax has been a second-round fantasy value this year, if you ignore his 3.6 turnovers per game, but he'll inevitably slide down closer to the 60-80 range once Russell Westbrook returns. Rotoworld.com

    Kobe Bryant was in the groove vs. Atlanta on Tuesday, sinking 10-of-18 shots with three 3-pointers to finish with a team-high 28 points.

    Advice: Bryant added four rebounds, three assists and one steal to round out his efficient performance. He leads the NBA in scoring at 27.3 points per game despite shooting a mere 37.7 percent from the field prior to tonight's stellar performance. He's over the flu that slowed him down this weekend and even Nick Young's return won't have a significant impact on Kobe's shot totals, which is good news for fantasy owners relying on his volume scoring.

  • Marcus Smart (ankle) likely out Wed. & Fri.
    Marcus Smart (ankle) will travel with the Celtics for their road games on Wednesday and Friday, but he's not expected to play in either game.

    Advice: Smart is progressing nicely after his scary injury and he's already begun shooting around, but he doesn't have a specific return date. His defensive energy will earn him a role in coach Brad Stevens' rotation, but he doesn't have much fantasy upside with Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley both healthy. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Watson is getting close to making his regular-season debut, but Wednesday will not be the day. Donald Sloan has been filling in admirably as the team's starting point guard with George Hill (knee) and Watson sidelined, and it's not clear if Watson would immediately challenge Sloan for the starting spot upon his return.

  • Rajon Rondo has historically bad FT night
    Rajon Rondo hit just 2-of-10 free throws during Monday's loss to the Suns.

    Advice: Rondo's poor shooting from the charity stripe was historically bad as he became just the second guard since 1963-64 to attempt 10 free throws or more while hitting two or fewer. While Rondo is still a nightly triple-double threat, his 30.0 percent shooting from the free throw line this season is becoming a bit of a liability in rotisserie leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Mark Cuban said he's excited for Raymond Felton (ankle) to return from his four-game suspension.

    Advice: Felton began served his suspension on Monday, so he should be on-track to suit up against the Pacers on November 24 now that his high ankle sprain has healed. "I’m excited to get Raymond back because that will push our point guards a little bit more," Cuban said. While Cuban might be excited, fantasy owners shouldn't be rushing to add Felton as he's stuck in a backcourt logjam with Monta Ellis, Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris, and J.J. Barea. Rotoworld.com

    Jeff Green scored 28 points against the Suns on Monday with two rebounds, one assist, three steals and two blocks in 36 minutes.

    Advice: He put Marcus Morris on a poster and he's playing some aggressive ball right now. Green's shooting percentages were starting to come down, but he is getting to the line a lot more this season. He is one of the best late-round picks from drafts this season. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Left for dead by many, Jennings is a top-40 player all of a sudden and at 45.6 percent shooting from the field it's certainly a sell-high moment. Just know that he has a top-50 upside enhanced by his durability and shouldn't be sold short. Rotoworld.com

    Rajon Rondo just missed a triple-double against the Suns during a 118-114 loss on Monday with 14 points, 10 rebounds, nine assists, one steal and five turnovers.

    Advice: He did shoot 2-of-10 from the line, so it wasn't all good. Rondo is not just 6-of-20 (20 percent) from the line on the season, which has kept his value to an early-late round guy. He's obviously a much better asset in points leagues than standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
