  • Chris Kaman (shoulder) set to play on Friday
    Chris Kaman (shoulder) is probable to play against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: He has been out since last week and the Blazers were able to get Joel Freeland some minutes. Kaman will likely be close to 15-20 minutes and is only an option in very deep leagues on a 13-game night. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) a game-time decision
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game vs. the Trail Blazers.

    Advice: Knight has missed the past seven games, so if he is able to go, he'll likely have his minutes held in check, as his conditioning is likely not where it needs to be. Owners will need to check back for another update closer to tip-off, but with 13 games being played tonight, Knight is not necessarily a must-start guy in standard leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Jrue Holiday (leg) still without return date
    Jrue Holiday (leg) still has not been able to practice, and he remains without an official timetable to return.

    Advice: "I’m just trying to take it slow, don’t want to re-aggravate it. Obviously last time I tried to do a little bit more, it flared up on me," said Holiday. "I think the doctor kind of has a timetable, which they know about. I don’t really know. I don’t ask questions, because I might try to test the waters a little bit too soon. So I just do what they tell me." With just 11 games remaining for the Pelicans, and no clear return date in sight, Holiday belongs on the waiver wire in all re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Pero Antic (neck) may not play Friday vs. MIA
    Pero Antic (stiff neck) may not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: If Antic is unable to go on Friday, look for Elton Brand and Mike Muscala to pick up most of his reserve minutes, although neither of those guys can be relied upon to produce in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Richard Jefferson (back) will try to play Fri
    Richard Jefferson (back spasms) said he is feeling better and he will try to play Friday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Jefferson isn't a major part of the rotation with Chandler Parsons healthy, so owners in standard leagues should not be concerned whether he plays or not. If he's unable to go, look for Al-Farouq Aminu to pick up most of his reserve minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Chalmers likely to get another start Friday
    With Dwyane Wade (knee) not likely to play Friday vs. the Hawks, Mario Chalmers looks like he'll get another game with the starting unit.

    Advice: Heat coach Erik Spoelstra hinted that he'll go with the same starting lineup from Wednesday which featured Goran Dragic, Mario Chalmers, Luol Deng, Henry Walker, and Udonis Haslem. Chalmers will see a boost in value as a starter, and he'll have a favorable matchup against the Hawks, so he's someone to consider in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:46 am
  • Jeff Teague (ankle) out Friday vs. the Heat
    Jeff Teague (tender ankle) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Head coach Mike Budenholder would not say whether Teague would miss any additional time with the ankle injury, but we'll be considering him questionable for Saturday's game against the Hornets. With Teague out, Dennis Schroder will slide back into the starting lineup, and he looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues tonight with a favorable matchup against Miami.

  • Jordan Hill (tanking) ruled out for Friday
    Jordan Hill will be a healthy scratch for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: Hill has spent the past two games on the sidelines despite being perfectly healthy, so it appears head coach Byron Scott has fully embraced the tanking concept. Look for Ryan Kelly to start with Ed Davis seeing some extended minutes off the bench. Both Kelly and Davis have been playing well lately, so they're worth a look in deep leagues. Byron Scott said he may insert Hill back into the lineup for either Sunday's game vs. Brooklyn or Monday's game vs. Philadelphia, so we'll be watching for that. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill out Friday
    Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill will not play Friday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: With Boozer and Hill out, Tarik Black and Ryan Kelly will likely remain in the starting unit, with Ed Davis seeing extended minutes off the bench. All three guys can be viewed as low-end streamer options in deep leagues, with Davis and Kelly offering the most upside. Head coach Byron Scott said Hill and Boozer may return to the lineup for either Sunday's game vs. the Nets or Monday's game vs. the 76ers. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Donatas Motiejunas (back) misses shootaround
    Donatas Motiejunas (back) did not participate during shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Motiejunas isn't headed in the right direction after missing shootaround, so we're going to consider him closer to doubtful than questionable for tonight's game. If he's unable to go, Josh Smith would get all the run he can handle, and he'll be well worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (knee) misses shootaround Friday
    Dwyane Wade (knee) did not go through shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: Head coach Erik Spoelstra said that he doesn't expect Wade to play tonight, so we'll be considering him on the doubtful side of questionable. If he is forced to sit, expect Goran Dragic and Luol Deng to see some increased opportunity on offense, with Mario Chalmers likely starting at the two-spot. Rotoworld.com

  • Borrego praises Dewayne Dedmon's defense
    Magic head coach James Borrego praised Dewayne Dedmon's effort on the defensive end during a recent interview.

    Advice: "He gives us energy," Borrego said. "He gives us an edge. He gives us toughness. He challenges shots, passes. And then we have another big guy right next to him there to clog the paint and challenge shots. The length of those two, the size, is a good combination for us defensively." It sounds like Dedmon will remain in the starting lineup as the Magic close out their season, but with averages of just 4.8 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks per game as a starter, he can only be viewed as a rebounding and shot-blocking specialist in very deep leagues.

  • Nets sign F Earl Clark to 10-day contract
    The Nets have signed F Earl Clark to a 10-day contract.

    Advice: This move may have something to do with Thaddeus Young's recent knee injury, and Clark will give the Nets some much-needed depth at the power forward spot. That being said, he's unlikely to earn significant minutes right out the gate, so it's safe to leave Clark on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Pistons recall Quincy Miller from D-League
    The Pistons have recalled Quincy Miller from the D-League.

    Advice: Quincy could potentially get some minutes with the Pistons with Caron Butler's (knee) status up in the air for Friday's game vs. Orlando. However, up to this point he has not played a single minute of basketball for Detroit, so it's safe to leave him on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • O.J. Mayo scores three points in 13 minutes
    O.J. Mayo returned to action against the Pacers on Thursday, scoring three points with one rebound, four assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He didn't look too bad considering his hamstring issue has bothered him for most of the post-break run. Still, Mayo is likely going to have a 20-minute cap for the next week or so. Keep him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Thursday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Thursday against the Pacers.

    Advice: Mayo was limited to just six minutes when he returned to action on Tuesday, but head coach Jason Kidd said he'll "add minutes" for Mayo tonight. That's a pretty vague quote, but we doubt Mayo would see his minutes much higher than the 20s. With a tough matchup against the Pacers, and a lot of uncertainty around how much floor time Mayo will see tonight, he's not a great option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:28 pm
  • Dwyane Wade (knee) questionable for Friday
    Dwyane Wade (knee) is questionable to play Friday vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: Wade was forced to spend Wednesday's game on the sidelines, which resulted in Mario Chalmers sliding into the starting unit, although he only managed to put up six points and seven assists over 37 minutes of action. If Wade is again unavailable on Friday, look for Goran Dragic and Luol Deng to do the heavy lifting on offense, with Chalmers and Henry Walker likely seeing extended minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Hornacek hopeful Knight (ankle) can play Fri.
    Suns' head coach Jeff Hornacek said he is hopeful that Brandon Knight (ankle) will be able to return to the lineup for Friday's game vs. Portland.

    Advice: Knight was running sprints, and played some one-on-one during Thursday's practice, and the Suns are currently listing him as the dreaded game-time decision. Owners will need to check back closer to Friday's tip, but if he is able to go, Marcus Morris' run with the starting unit will more than likely come to an end. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Richard Jefferson (back) questionable Friday
    Richard Jefferson (back spasms) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Jefferson isn't a major rotation player for Dallas, so his absence won't mean much. Expect Al-Farouq Aminu to pick up most of his reserve minutes if he is indeed unavailable, but Aminu can't be viewed as a viable option in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Donatas Motiejunas (back) questionable Friday
    Donatas Motiejunas (lower back pain) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: If Motiejunas is unable to go on Friday, Josh Smith would likely slide into the starting lineup, and he'd get all the run he can handle as the only healthy power forward on the roster. He'd draw a very favorable matchup against the Wolves, so Smith would be worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues if Motiejunas is forced to sit. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Hill not sweating minutes decrease
    Jordan Hill said he has no issues with the Lakers decision to sit him for the next four or five upcoming games.

    Advice: While the Lakers openly tank, Hill is toeing the company line when it comes to his benching. "I’m not playing for nothing," Hill said. "It’s a good time to get other guys a lot more minutes and get a feel of the game." Hill can be dropped while the Lakers experiment with younger players and Ryan Kelly, Ed Davis, and Tarik Black are all worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Teague plays well despite ankle injury
    Jeff Teague had 16 points and nine assists, returning after briefly leaving Wednesday's game with a minor ankle injury.

    Advice: The Hawks need to get their groove back on before the playoffs, but also want to keep their guys healthy. They play the Heat on Friday, so owners of Hawks will want to keep an eye out for some DNP-CD's for some of the starters, although it's possible they play everyone, as well. The game is in ATL, so maybe the Hawks will play their stars for the home crowd. Rotoworld.com

    Donatas Motiejunas scored 21 points with eight rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer on 10-of-16 from the field in 37 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Advice: With Dwight Howard still on a minutes limit, Donuts was still able to eat. He should have another couple weeks of solid fantasy value in standard formats. It's also worth noting he played much more than Josh Smith (24 minutes) tonight. Start Motiejunas on Friday against the Wolves. Rotoworld.com

    Dewayne Dedmon returned from a three-game absence due to a sprained ankle on Wednesday, but didn't score.

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) out on Wednesday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: He tried to warm up and just couldn't give it a go. Knight will have a chance to play on Friday and should be owned in all leagues now that he's close to a return. Marcus Morris will have another game to produce while Archie Goodwin may also help out more. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Teague (left ankle) will return on Wed
    Jeff Teague (ankle) will return against the Magic on Wednesday.

    Advice: He could barely walk to the locker room, so this is a surprise. The Hawks do play a home game on Friday and there's a decent chance for swelling on Teague. Considering Dennis Schroder was already worth owning in most leagues, he's a very good speculative add. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Teague rolls left ankle vs. the Magic
    Jeff Teague suffered an apparent sprained left ankle against the Magic on Wednesday and went to the locker room.

    Advice: It did not look good and Teague needed some help to get to the locker room. He returned to the bench after a brief trip to the locker room, so apparently the injury wasn't as bad as it initially looked. Dennis Schroder's upside is so high that he's a very strong speculative add. Rotoworld.com

    Mario Chalmers will start against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's going to get some serious minutes with the Heat missing more than half their team for back in October. With so much offense missing because of Dwyane Wade (knee) being out, Chalmers should have his biggest chance to produce since the break. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Boozer not expected to play on Wed
    Carlos Boozer (tanking) is expected to sit out of Wednesday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Jordan Hill also won't play, but both players will still dress and will be on the bench for emergency purposes. Ryan Kelly and Tarik Black will draw the start again, but they are both only options in deeper leagues. Ed Davis and Robert Sacre will also be in the frontcourt rotation, but Davis is the only one worth a look for his upside in blocks. Just to clarify, Boozer or Hill are not expected to play for at least a few more games, and the Lakers will do everything they can to strengthen their chances of a high pick in this year's draft.

    Dwyane Wade (knee) will not play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Advice: "Wade fell on his left knee in last night’s game and it continued to swell overnight," according to the team. Without Wade the Heat are going to be in dire straits for offense. Goran Dragic is going to dominate the offense and has a monster upside while Mario Chalmers and Tyler Johnson are also more attractive plays. Michael Beasley may take 25 shots tonight. As for Wade, his fantasy owners are going to be a little uneasy regarding his status for Friday against the Hawks. Rotoworld.com

  • Dewayne Dedmon will start on Wednesday
    Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) will start against the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He should be ready to go with his minutes in the 20s. With his return, Channing Frye is at risk of losing playing time. Dedmon is capable of being a double-double guy with some blocks, so keep an eye on him. He's still not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • O.J. Mayo is probable to play Thursday
    O.J. Mayo is probable to play against the Pacers on Thursday after going through practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: He played just six minutes on Tuesday in his return to the lineup. The Bucks are unlikely to play Mayo more than 10-12 minutes on Thursday, so keep him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Kaman (shoulder) out again on Wednesday
    Chris Kaman (shoulder) will not play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

  • Brandon Knight hoping to play on Wednesday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) is hoping to play against the Kings on Wednesday and will likely be a game-time decision.

    Advice: If Knight does play, he will likely come off the bench to keep his ankle loose. Once he does come back, Marcus Morris would lose some playing time along with guys like Archie Goodwin, T.J. Warren and A.J. Price. Knight should be stashed in all leagues with his imminent return.

  • Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) is doubtful Wednesday
    Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) is unlikely to play on Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Dedmon has missed three straight games now, and it looks like the Magic will continue to be cautious on Wednesday. If Dedmon can't give it a go tonight, expect Andrew Nicholson, Channing Frye (illness) and Kyle O'Quinn to be in the mix for more minutes, though none of these players are viable options in standard leagues.

  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) scoreless in return
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) returned to action on Tuesday, going scoreless with two rebounds and one assist in six minutes vs. the Heat.

    Advice: He didn't check in until the end of the third quarter, presumably because Jason Kidd wanted more offensive weapons on the court with his Bucks trailing by seven points. Mayo has suffered a few setbacks with his hamstring in recent weeks and fantasy owners should view him with skepticism as long as he's playing limited minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com

  • Mario Chalmers chips in 14 pts off Heat bench
    Mario Chalmers scored 14 points with one 3-pointer, two assists and three steals in 27 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's crushing loss in Milwaukee.

    Advice: Before the game Erik Spoelstra told reporters, "For the next month each game will have the feel of playoff intensity." The No. 7 seed Heat were facing the No. 6 seed Bucks tonight and they blew a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter, so there's sure to be some soul-searching during their flight to Boston. Chalmers hasn't been worth owning in 12-team leagues since Goran Dragic (16 points, six assists) took over the starting PG job. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade scores 21 but Heat blow huge lead
    Dwyane Wade's 21 points, four assists and three steals weren't enough to avoid an 88-89 loss vs. the Bucks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Since the All-Star break, only Russell Westbrook has a higher usage rate than Wade (34.7 percent), and he earned Player of the Week honors for his stellar play from March 16 -22, when he averaged 24.5 points on 53.2 percent shooting, 2.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.3 steals. He's only missed one game since mid-February and he's peaking at the perfect time for fantasy owners and the Heat, who are still locked in a tight race for a playoff spot. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Hill likely to sit out next 4-5 games
    Jordan Hill (tanking) will likely sit out for the next four to five games so that the Lakers can evaluate their younger players.

    Advice: Unreal. The tanking saga continues around the NBA, and this move will certainly draw some harsh criticism from around the league. Hill has been one of the better plays for the Lakers this season with averages of 12.3 points and 8.0 boards per game, so it will be interesting to see how he reacts to this. For what it's worth, Carlos Boozer will also sit out with Hill, meaning Ryan Kelly, Tarik Black, Ed Davis and Robert Sacre will handle the frontcourt duties for the Lakers until further notice. With fantasy playoffs in progress, Hill's owners should cut bait. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Boozer has been a net negative player both offensively and defensively this season, per Basketball Reference, but his inactivity is another signal that the Lakers are ready to tank in earnest over their final 12 games. Boozer is not a viable fantasy option, even if he does claw his way back into the rotation.

    Chris Kaman (shoulder) will not play vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Blazers will probably err on the side of caution with Kaman moving forward in an effort to keep him fresh for the playoffs, so we wouldn't expect him to play unless he is 100 percent. The Blazers play again on Wednesday vs. the Jazz, so Kaman should be considered doubtful for that one as well. With LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) also out of the lineup, expect Joel Freeland and Meyers Leonard to see an uptick in minutes, though neither player is very appealing in most leagues right now.

  • Richard Jefferson leaves w/ stiff lower back
    Richard Jefferson will not return to Tuesday's game due to back spasms and lower back stiffness.

    Jordan Hill (tanking) and Carlos Boozer (tanking) may not be in the rotation vs. the Thunder on Tuesday according to Lakers beat writer Mike Trudell.

    Advice: Ryan Kelly and Tarik Black are starting in the frontcourt, so winning clearly isn't a priority tonight. The Lakers are going to get their younger guys some more playing time down the stretch, so Hill and Boozer's value will likely start to trend down.

    Jordan Hill will shift to the bench for Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder, while Ryan Kelly will draw the start.

    Advice: The Lakers are desperately trying to improve their chances in the draft lottery, so it's not surprising to see them give their younger players a longer look. Hill's owners should use a wait-and-see approach here, but it look his value could take a hit down the stretch. Ryan Kelly is only worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Jrue Holiday (leg) went through some shooting drills on Tuesday, but he has still not been able to practice, and remains without an official return date.

    Advice: Holiday is not even close to a return, and this stress reaction is looking very similar to the one that limited him to just 34 games last season. The Pelicans haven't given many updates on Holiday, which isn't a great sign, and with the fantasy playoffs in full swing Holiday belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He is going to be a bigger part of the offense until Dwight Howard (knee) gets back, which could be as soon as Wednesday.

    Advice: He did not practice on Monday and is likely going to miss his second consecutive game. The Blazers will use Joel Freeland and Meyers Leonard to back up Robin Lopez. Neither are trustworthy in most leagues while Kaman can be dropped basically everywhere. Rotoworld.com

  • O.J. Mayo is questionable for Tuesday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: Even if he does return, the Bucks are unlikely to give him more than minutes in the teens. Mayo is not worth owning in almost any league. Tyler Ennis should remain in the rotation while Jerryd Bayless gets some extra run. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Hill shoots 6-of-7 in just 20 minutes
    Jordan Hill made 6-of-7 shots vs. the Sixers on Sunday, finishing L.A.'s home victory with 12 points, eight rebounds and three assists in only 20 minutes.

    Advice: Hill was a combined 10-of-31 from the field in his three previous games, so it's nice to see him get going offensively vs. a Sixers defense which has been surprisingly stingy in recent weeks. Hill is a reliable late-round value but he lacks explosive upside while logging 25-28 minutes for coach Byron Scott. Owners should be on the lookout for potential lineup changes, too, as Scott has suggested that he'll tweak his rotations over L.A.'s final 10 games. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play Sunday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play on Sunday vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: He was considered doubtful, so there are no real surprises here. Knight is progressing well and was doing a lot of work out on the court prior to the game, so it looks like we could see him return to action on Wednesday vs. the Kings. Marcus Morris will remain in the starting lineup tonight and is worth deploying in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Mario Chalmers plays team-high 34 minutes
    Mario Chalmers logged a team-high 34 minutes in Sunday's road loss, scoring 12 points with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two steals and four turnovers.

    Advice: He helped pester Russell Westbrook into 5-of-16 shooting, though WB still racked up his 10th triple-double of the season. It wasn't all good for Chalmers, as he shot 4-of-14 from the field and didn't have any assists. His value has plummetted since Goran Dragic arrived in Miami and owners in 12-team leagues should leave him floating on the wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Teague scores eight quiet points Sunday
    Jeff Teague had another quiet game on Sunday, scoring eight points while handing out six assists in 28 minutes vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Teague stole the ball three times but he also committed five turnovers, and he didn't so much as attempt a 3-point shot. The Hawks are riding a season-long three-game losing streak but they're headed toward a relatively lenient week with matchups vs. the Magic, Heat and Hornets. Rotoworld.com

  • Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) out Sunday vs. DEN
    Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) will remain sidelined for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Channing Frye (illness) is also out tonight, which means Kyle O'Quinn, Andrew Nicholson and Aaron Gordon will combine to fill the void at power forward. O'Quinn would be the best option if he gets sufficient playing time, but Andrew Nicholson is also worth a look as Orlando's fill-in starter. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 1:48 pm
  • Dewayne Dedmon will be a game-time call
    Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) will be a game-time decision on Sunday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Dedmon has been sidelined for the past two games which has forced the Magic to turn to the veteran Channing Frye, but he has been pretty underwhelming. We will let you know if Dedmon is cleared to play, and even though he would likely reclaim his spot in the starting lineup, he is only worth a look for owners in need of blocks and boards.

  • Donatas Motiejunas scores 18 points
    Donatas Motiejunas scored 18 points with three rebounds, six assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Suns on Saturday.

    Advice: He is going to get major minutes until Dwight Howard (knee) and Terrence Jones (chest) get back. Howard is likely out for at least a couple more games, so Motiejunas could have a nice week with four games on the schedule. He's worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) won't play Saturday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Rockets on Saturday.

  • Chris Kaman (shoulder) out vs. Memphis
    Chris Kaman (shoulder) will not play against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Advice: He suffered the injury on Friday and did not return. Kaman had a minor shoulder injury back in 2011, but it's certainly not a trend. With Kaman out for most of Friday, coach Terry Stotts went with a combination of C.J. McCollum and Meyers Leonard to fill in. Considering Kaman is only playing in the teens and Stotts doesn't have a consistent rotation when a wing or big is out, fantasy owners shouldn't trust C.J. or Meyers. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) doubtful for Saturday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) is doubtful to play vs. the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: Knight's ankle is improving, but his chances of playing tonight remain very slim and he remains without a timetable to return. If he can't play tonight, expect Marcus Morris to remain in the starting lineup and continue to be a must-start player in most leagues. Expect another update on Knight's status prior to tip-off.

  • Pero Antic scores career-high 22 points
    Pero Antic scored a career-high 22 points on Friday, hitting 6-of-9 shots (including four threes) with three rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Antic probably has more value helping his girlfriend Chloe and the associates at CTU chase down supervillains than he does in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Chalmers has productive night vs. Nuggets
    Mario Chalmers scored 10 points on 2-of-4 shooting (6-of-7 FTs) with four rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes off the bench on Friday.

    Advice: Chalmers is providing some surprising late-round value over the past week or two, but he's 55 percent of his shots over the last seven games and when that straightens itself out he might not even be a 14-team play. Plan accordingly. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:31 pm
  • Chris Kaman (shoulder) out for game vs. ORL
    Chris Kaman suffered a right shoulder strain on Friday against the Magic and will not return.

    Advice: He has a tough time staying on the court and it's fair to think he's going to miss a couple games here. If that's true, Meyers Leonard should get a few more minutes. Leonard is worth a look in deep leagues for owners need some scoring. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 5:15 pm
  • Dedmon (ankle), Green (back) out for Friday
    Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) and Willie Green (back) have been ruled out for Friday's game vs. Portland.

    Advice: With Dedmon out, Channing Frye will stick with the starting unit, with Kyle O'Quinn having the opportunity for extended minutes off the bench. Frye's good for some 3-pointers, but not much else, while O'Quinn has been irrelevant since December. Green's absence will give Ben Gordon the opportunity for some extended minutes off the bench, but he's been far too inconsistent this season to be considered an option in almost any league. Victor Oladipo will be forced into heavy minutes with the Orlando backcourt banged up. Rotoworld.com

  • Mayo (hamstring), Dudley (back) out Friday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) and Jared Dudley (back) have been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Nets, and both players are without an official timetable to return.

    Advice: With both Mayo and Dudley unavailable, Giannis Antetokounmpo will get all the run he can handle with Jerryd Bayless and Tyler Ennis seeing extending minutes off the bench. Bayless can be viewed as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues, but Ennis doesn't offer much value at all. Mayo and Dudley can be cut in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:09 am
  • Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) uncertain for Friday
    Dewayne Dedmon's (ankle) status for Friday's game will be decided closer to tip-off.

    Advice: If he's unable to go on Friday, Channing Frye will get another opportunity to start, but with a tough matchup vs. the Blazers he's not looking like a great option in most leagues. Kyle O'Quinn could also enter the rotation if Dedmon is out, but he too is an extremely risky option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Hill scores four points in a loss
    Jordan Hill scored four points in an 80-73 loss to the Jazz on Thursday with 10 rebounds, one block and two steals in 28 minutes.

    Advice: The minutes are there for Hill right now, but he's made a combined 10-of-31 (32.3 percent) from the field in his last three games. Hill does have some decent production in the other categories with at least nine rebounds in each of his last four, so he's a decent guy to own. The Lakers have a 4-4-4 schedule in the last three full weeks of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Donatas Motiejunas plays 37 minutes
    Donatas Motiejunas made 3-of-10 from the field for seven points with nine rebounds, four assists and three steals in 37 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    Advice: With Terrence Jones (rib) going down, Donuts is going to get a lot of run. Although, he hasn't played well in his last five, averaging 12.4 points, 5.8 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 treys on 40.7 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from the line. Motiejunas is not a must-own player in standard leagues, especially with Dwight Howard coming back soon. He's worth owning in points leagues and deeper formats. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek said Knight's injury is improving, but he did not go through shootaround and will not suit up against the Pelicans. We'll update his status prior to Saturday's game against the Rockets, but for now, Marcus Morris will get the start and see a boost in fantasy value on Thursday. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade feels the best he has in years
    Dwyane Wade said his body feels the best that it has in years.

    Advice: "This is the best I've felt in years right now," Wade said. "You question it. And you try not to question it, like 'Why? Why couldn't I feel like this the last two years?' But it is what it is. I'm feeling like this now, when I need it individually to [carry] more of a load to help this team." Wade is averaging 29.1 points over his past seven games and has the Heat in position for a playoff spot. Despite some nagging injuries this season, Wade has been surprisingly healthy and is a must-start for fantasy owners as long as he's on the court. Rotoworld.com

    Dwyane Wade hit 13-of-26 shots for 32 points, four rebounds, six assists and a steal in Wednesday's win.

    Advice: Wade is surprisingly healthy these days, as well as on fire. He's scored at least 25 points in each of his last five games and is averaging 30.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.8 steals on 55 percent shooting. Hopefully he keeps playing until the end of the season. Rotoworld.com

    The Hawks are starting Jeff Teague, Kent Bazemore, DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap and Al Horford against the Warriors on Wednesday.

  • Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) ruled out vs. Mavs
    Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) will not play vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He rolled an ankle during Tuesday's loss in Houston, and his absence will likely thrust Channing Frye into the starting PF spot. Nikola Vucevic will also be busy vs. Tyson Chandler and the Mavs' frontcourt. We're calling Dedmon questionable to return for Friday's home game vs. the Blazers. Rotoworld.com

  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) won't play Wednesday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is likely out for a while and the Bucks won't be rushing him back. Jerryd Bayless and Tyler Ennis will benefit most with Bayless holding much more fantasy value. Mayo can be dropped basically everywhere. Rotoworld.com

  • Donatas Motiejunas leads Houston w/ 23 points
    Donatas Motiejunas lit up the Magic for a team-high 23 points with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds and four assists on Tuesday, helping the Rockets earn a 13-point victory.

    Advice: Orlando ranks No. 26 in defensive efficiency, allowing 105.4 points per 100 possessions, so it's no surprise to see D-Mo take advantage of the matchup. He saw more opportunities early with Terrence Jones coming off the bench in the first half, and with any luck this will spark an offensive resurgence -- he was making 37.9 percent FGs and 41.2 percent FTs over his previous six games.

  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) not with team Tuesday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday, as he's in Milwaukee receiving treatment.

    Advice: Mayo's hamstring has bothered him for weeks and he may have aggravated it in just seven minutes of action on Saturday. Whether he'll return for Wednesday's home game is unclear, but his inability to stay healthy rules him out as a fantasy option at this critical juncture of the season. Rotoworld.com

    Jordan Hill continued to heat up with 15 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, three steals and a rare 3-pointer in Monday's loss to the Warriors.

  • Dwyane Wade scores 32 in win over Cavs
    Dwyane Wade was in superstar mode during a 106-92 win over the Cavs on Monday, scoring 32 points with two rebounds, two assists and a season-high five steals in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He was 13-of-18 from the field and just did whatever he wanted on offense for his second 30-point game against the Cavs this season. "When we play the way we played tonight on both ends of the floor, we know we can beat anyone," Wade said. It sounds like the Heat are now going for the postseason and they're sitting in the No. 8 spot right now with the tiebreaker over Boston. Wade will have much more fantasy value if the Heat stay in the hunt. Rotoworld.com
