  • Dennis Schroder (foot) out for game
    Dennis Schroder (toe) will not return on Monday.

    Advice: This is a really tough blow to those who picked him up. Considering he's been ruled out and didn't come out to join his teammates on the bench, he might be out for Tuesday. What's more, the Hawks are very likely to sit Jeff Teague in a road game, so Shelvin Mack would likely start on Tuesday. If you're looking for a stream option, give Mack a look at any depth.

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) out again on Monday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Blazers on Monday.

    Advice: He sprained his ankle again on Sunday and the Suns will continue to hold him out. Expect Marcus Morris and Archie Goodwin to get most of his minutes. Morris is worth owning in all leagues while Knight isn't a great player to own right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Dennis Schroder (toe) questionable to return
    Dennis Schroder (left toe) is questionable to return on Monday.

    Advice: He was likely looking at a nice chunk of minutes tonight even with Jeff Teague back. Schroder would have almost been a lock to start tomorrow in a road game, so we might see Shelvin Mack start. We'll let you know if he returns. Rotoworld.com

  • Shabazz Napier doubtful for Tuesday
    Shabazz Napier (hip) is doubtful to play against the Spurs on Tuesday.

    Advice: He did not play on Sunday, but was reportedly very close to playing. Regardless, Napier is mot worth owning in almost all leagues while Dwyane Wade and Mario Chalmers are healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Ricky Rubio (ankle) out for Monday
    Ricky Rubio (ankle) will not play against the Jazz on Monday.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful, but the Minnesota Injury Decoder Ring™ indicated he had no chance to play tonight. Zach LaVine should be owned in all leagues while Lorenzo Brown should get big minutes. We're just kidding on the trademark, of course. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Teague will start against the Bucks
    Jeff Teague will start against the Bucks on Monday night.

    Advice: He is almost a lock to sit tomorrow on the road, but it's great to see he's back for tonight. Teague is going to sit multiple games going forward, so Dennis Schroder should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Lowry (back spasms) is still hurting
    Kyle Lowry (back spasms) is still hurt and it's "not just something where he's sore," according to coach Dwane Casey.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like he's going to be back at any point this week and he can probably be dropped in most fantasy leagues. Greivis Vasquez will get at least one more start tonight and probably has a few more headed his way, too. However, he hasn't played well, so he's not a must-own player. Vasquez is still worth a look if you need some treys and dimes. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeremy Lin (illness) out again for Monday
    Jeremy Lin (illness) will not play against the 76ers on Monday.

    Advice: He has an allergy issue and will miss his second straight game. Wayne Ellington will get another start and Jabari Brown will be the sixth man for the Lakers tonight. Expect both to be around 30 minutes and they could also be score in the teens tonight. Jordan Clarkson is also a nice play tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Carter-Williams will play on Monday
    Michael Carter-Williams has arrived to play against the Hawks on Monday.

    Advice: He's down to a paltry 36.8 percent from the field this month, which is bad for even him. Carter-Williams has been even worse in his last seven games, averaging 11.4 points, 2.9 boards, 4.9 assists, 1.7 steals and 0.1 treys on 32.9 percent from the field. He hasn't been worth owning in standard leagues, but is a decent option in points formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Blazers planning to sign Tim Frazier
    The Blazers are planning to sign Tim Frazier for the rest of the season.

    Advice: He flopped with the 76ers, but Frazier has been great down in the D-League. He's won D-League Player of the Week three times this season, averaging 16.1 points, 7.1 boards, 9.5 dimes and 1.7 steals in 41 games. The Blazers are healthy in the backcourt and coach Terry Stotts has been against rest, so Frazier won't be needed off the bat. He's the third PG behind Steve Blake. Rotoworld.com

  • Ricky Rubio (ankle) doubtful to play Monday
    Ricky Rubio (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Jazz on Monday.

    Advice: There was some optimism on Rubio on Sunday, but the Wolves have changed their tune today. With Rubio likely out, Zach LaVine will start at point guard with Lorenzo Brown likely joining him in the backcourt. LaVine is worth owning in all leagues, Brown is worth a flier in deep leagues and Rubio can be cut in most formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Gary Neal (ankle) will not play on Monday
    Gary Neal (ankle) will not play on Monday against the Jazz.

    Advice: Neal was doubtful coming into this one, and it doesn't appear he's anywhere close to making his return. Without him, Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger will continue to pick up extra minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (wrist) questionable Tuesday
    Rodney Stuckey (wrist) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

    Advice: Stuckey logged 30 minutes in Sunday's win over the Mavs while coming off a calf injury, but apparently he managed to add another injury in the process. If he's forced to sit out, C.J. Miles and C.J. Watson would both be the most direct beneficiaries. Rotoworld.com

  • Derrick Rose takes full contact in practice
    Derrick Rose (knee surgery) took full contact in practice on Monday.

    Advice: It's a great sign for Rose and his eventual return this season. He took part in a full contact 4-on-4 scrimmage, and Tom Thibodeau said Rose looked winded afterward, but otherwise reported no ill effects. Rose previously said it would take him a week or two to get back into game action after being cleared for contact, so owners looking to stash him will want to think long and hard about all the DNPs he still has left to rack up. The Bulls play just three times in each of the next two weeks. Aaron Brooks owners: Take notice. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Beverley to have surgery, end season
    Updating a previous item, Patrick Beverley has decided to have wrist surgery, and the procedure will end his season, a source told the Houston Chronicle.

    Advice: It's a devastating blow to the Rockets as the team is paper-thin at point guard behind him. Rookie Nick Johnson and veterans Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will look to fill the void, but none are real options for owners who have lost Beverley. MVP candidate James Harden will have even more to do as the Rockets close out the season in preparation for the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Carter-Williams expected to play Mon.
    Michael Carter-Williams will arrive to the Bucks game late today after the funeral of his grandfather, but he's expected to play on Monday against the Hawks.

    Advice: Our thoughts are with MCW and his family after the passing of his grandfather. This news won't impact his fantasy outlook unless he winds up missing the game, but that doesn't seem like a reality at this time. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Lowry (back) out again on Monday night
    Kyle Lowry (back) will not play on Monday against the Rockets.

    Advice: Lowry has already said that he won't rush his return, but it's not clear when he will be back on the floor. Greivis Vasquez is averaging 11.1 points, 4.3 assists and 1.7 triples on 44.6 percent shooting over 23 games as the starting point guard, and both Lou Williams and DeMar DeRozan will have more responsibilities while Lowry is sidelined, as well.

  • Deron Williams (illness) skips practice Mon.
    Deron Williams (illness) did not practice on Monday.

    Advice: Williams was sick before Sunday's game against the Lakers, but he still managed to play and score 13 points, hand out nine dimes and rip three steals in 34 minutes, so we're not concerned with him missing practice. However, the Nets have a back-to-back against the Pacers and Knicks on Tuesday and Wednesday, so D-Will's owners have to hope he doesn't get any worse. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Teague, starters likely to play Monday
    Jeff Teague (ankle) and the remainder of the Hawks starters are expected to play on Monday against the Bucks.

    Advice: However, "more rest" is expected on Tuesday, and that should have been obvious considering the Hawks have clinched the No. 1 seed and are on a back-to-back set. After Tuesday's road game against the Pistons, the Hawks are off until Saturday, so those relying on Atlanta for fantasy contributions while fighting for their lives may want to look elsewhere.

  • Clippers could bring back Nate Robinson soon
    The Clippers could bring back Nate Robinson (knee) once he's healthy enough to play.

    Advice: Los Angeles signed Lester Hudson to a 10-day deal, but Doc Rivers seems to prefer Robinson if he's healthy. "It's a strong possibility. I liked what Nate brought us. I liked his energy." Rotoworld.com
    Today, 8:24 am
  • Rubio, Dieng, Martin all questionable Monday
    Ricky Rubio (ankle), Gorgui Dieng (facial contusion) and Kevin Martin (hamstring) are all questionable to play on Monday.

    Advice: The Timberwolves are notoriously terrible with their injury updates, and this doesn't really help owners at all. All three players could very well be facing game-time decisions. If Rubio sits, Zach LaVine will start at point guard, if Dieng doesn't play, Justin Hamilton will likely start at center and if Martin is out, expect Lorenzo Brown to draw another start at shooting guard. As a starter, LaVine is averaging 11.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.7 assists, a steal and 0.9 triples on 41 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com

  • Rockets to make decision on Beverley Monday
    The Rockets are expected to make a decision on Patrick Beverley's wrist on Monday.

    Advice: After Kevin McHale said on Sunday that Beverley is unlikely to return this season, we're reading the tea leaves. If Beverley undergoes surgery, he'll be out the rest of the way, leaving Houston with just Jason Terry, Pablo Prigioni and Nick Johnson at point guard. With how much James Harden handles the ball, the Rockets will survive offensively, but Beverley's defense can't be replaced. Rotoworld.com

  • Wizards forgetting plays out of timeout calls
    John Wall confirmed that his Wizards teammates were forgetting plays called out of timeouts in Sunday's loss to Houston.

    Advice: That's an interesting look for a team that has played 74 games this season. Washington has now lost five of its last six games, and Randy Wittman's message doesn't appear to be getting through in the locker room. Exposed as pretenders, Washington has eight games to figure it out before the playoffs begin. Rotoworld.com

  • Update: Brandon Knight iffy to play Monday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) did not have a noticeable limp after Sunday's game, but his status may be in jeopardy for Monday's road game in Portland.

    Advice: Suns coach Jeff Hornacek reportedly said, "I would guess he wouldn't play." The report suggests that Knight will miss Thursday's game in Golden State, but it makes more sense that Hornacek was referencing Monday's game, the second half of a back-to-back set. Either way, Knight's owners should be on red-alert for a potential DNP. Rotoworld.com

  • Russell Westbrook nets 33 pts in comeback win
    The Thunder won a critical game in Phoenix on Sunday behind Russell Westbrook's 33 points (10-of-29 FGs, 12-of-14 FTs), nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block.

    Advice: Westbrook now has 24 games with 30+ points this season and he's racking up gaudy fantasy lines on a nightly basis, though tonight's production was tainted by a lousy FG percentage. Kevin Durant (foot) is done for the season and Serge Ibaka (knee) won't return until mid-April at the earliest, leaving Westbrook to single-handedly carry the Thunder in the playoffs. So far, so good, as he's staked the Thunder to a 2.5-game lead over the No. 9 seed Pelicans. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) goes 1-of-10 in return
    Brandon Knight returned to action on Sunday, coming off the Suns bench for three points, two rebounds, four assists and one steal in 22 minutes, while shooting just 1-of-10 from the field.

    Advice: He missed all six of his 3-point attempts and the poor shooting is a product of rust -- he hadn't played in a game since Mar. 9. He took a hard fall tonight but shook it off and shouldn't be in any danger of missing Monday's road game in Portland, but owners should still confirm his status in a back-to-back set. Rotoworld.com

  • Rajon Rondo scores 17 points with 10 dimes
    Rajon Rondo stepped up in the absence of Monta Ellis (calf) in Sunday's loss to the Pacers, scoring 17 points with 10 assists, seven boards, two steals and one block in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Rondo shot 8-of-14 from the field and hit his only free throw attempt on the night, and early indications suggests that he and Chandler Parsons will be the biggest beneficiaries if Ellis remains on the shelf (there is no timetable for his return). This was also the most minutes Rondo has played since joining the Mavericks, and he should be able to carry this momentum moving forward with the extra responsibility on offense. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (calf) plays 30 minutes Sunday
    Rodney Stuckey (calf) logged 30 minutes during Sunday's much-needed win vs. Dallas, scoring 10 points with one 3-pointer, five rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: He wasn't on a minute-limit and is safe to deploy whenever he's healthy, as the Pacers have given him a green-light to shoot with their second unit (he finished 4-of-14 from the field tonight). The second unit has proven to be a strength for Indiana this season -- their bench is averaging 41.0 points per game, second in the NBA behind only the Lakers. Stuckey's return stole some playing time from C.J. Miles (28 minutes), C.J. Watson (24 minutes) and especially Solomon Hill (14 minutes). Rotoworld.com

  • Celtics' comeback bid falls short vs. Clips
    Isaiah Thomas came off Boston's bench for a team-high 19 points in 26 minutes during Sunday's loss in Boston, adding two 3-pointers, seven assists and two steals without any turnovers.

    Advice: He played 20 minutes and 24 minutes in his first two games back from a hip/back injury, so the increased playing time is encouraging. He did most of his damage at the free throw line tonight, where he shot 9-of-10, and it helps that he was facing the Clippers' suspect second-unit defense for most of the night. Owners can still expect him to carve up the Hornets on Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:16 pm
  • Austin Rivers productive in 24 bench minutes
    Austin Rivers posted another productive line in 24 minutes on Sunday -- seven points, five rebounds and four assists with one steal and one block.

    Advice: Rivers isn't a trustworthy option in standard leagues but it's hard to ignore his averages over the past three games -- 17.0 points on 62.5 percent shooting, 0.7 triples, 3.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.0 steals. He's doing all of that in just 22 minutes per game and it's unlikely that he'll keep up such a scintillating per-minute pace, so deploy him with due caution, if at all. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) will play vs. OKC
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will play vs. the Thunder on Sunday, but he will come off the bench.

    Advice: After an eight-game absence, Knight is finally back. His minutes will probably be held in check and he will might be a little rusty, but his owners will be pumped to have him back in their lineups. Marcus Morris will remain in the starting lineup for now, but his value could take a hit down the stretch. We will let you know how Knight holds up after the game. Rotoworld.com

  • Ricky Rubio (ankle) could return on Monday?
    Head coach Flip Saunders is hopeful that Ricky Rubio (ankle) will be able to return on Monday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Rubio has missed eight of the last nine games for the Wolves, so there are certainly no guarantees here. The Wolves are playing for ping pong balls and have no incentive to play Rubio at less than 100 percent, so there is no need for owners to overreact. If Rubio does return he will likely have a minutes limit, so his upside will be capped. Zach LaVine's value would take a hit if Rubio returns, but his owners should stand pat for now. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:49 pm
  • Tyreke Evans starts slow, sits in blowout win
    Tyreke Evans got off to a slow start on Sunday and he finished with only nine points, three rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in 23 minutes.

    Advice: The Pelicans are now 21-14 with Evans starting at point guard. His run as the lead guard may end in the near future, however, as coach Monty Williams expects Jrue Holiday (leg) to return before the end of the regular season. That would do Evans' fantasy value no favors, but he's safe to keep locked into all active lineups -- today's low playing time was due largely to the lopsided score, and Evans should fare much better vs. the Lakers on Wednesday.

  • Deron Williams has bounce-back game vs. LAL
    Deron Williams bounced back from Friday's disappointing outing on Sunday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting, with nine assists, one 3-pointer, one rebound, three steals, and three turnovers through 34 minutes of action.

    Advice: The Lakers are the worst team in the league at defending the point guard position, so if Williams was going to have a bounce-back performance, this was the ideal opportunity. The high minute total would suggest that he's over his illness, so owners can expect him to be a go for Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers. Jarret Jack struggled to get off the bench today with Williams playing so well, and only managed seven points, two assists, two rebounds, one steal, one 3-pointer and three turnovers through 14 minutes of action. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:13 pm
  • Update: Shabazz Napier (hip) out Sunday
    Updating a previous report, Shabazz Napier (hip) will not be able to play on Sunday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: The Heat have changed his status three times in the past 24 hours, so it's frustrating to see him ruled out of this one. Napier wasn't a consistent part of the rotation before the injury, so owners can comfortably leave him on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • John Wall flirts with triple-double in loss
    John Wall scored 25 points on Sunday, adding 12 assists, eight rebounds, four steals, one block and an unfortunate seven turnovers through 43 minutes of action.

    Advice: He shot 7-of-17 from the field and 11-of-12 from the charity stripe, and while he went on a major scoring run during the third quarter (14 points), he was held to just two points through the entire fourth quarter of action. While the Wizards have been struggling lately, it's hard to point the finger at Wall, who has posted averages of 19.6 points, 8.3 assists, 6.2 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 1.2 three-pointers per game through the month of March. With the Wizards fighting for a higher seed in the East, Wall will continue to log major minutes as they close out their regular-season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:56 pm
  • Shabazz Napier (hip) will play vs. Pistons
    Shabazz Napier (hip) will play through his minor injury vs. Detroit on Sunday.

    Advice: This is a reversal from a previous report listing Napier as doubtful. It gives Miami some backcourt insurance if Dwyane Wade's knee prevents him from playing, but Napier isn't a viable fantasy option with Mario Chalmers and Goran Dragic both healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:48 pm
  • The bad Jason Terry shows up Sunday
    Jason Terry showed why he's not a standard league asset on Sunday, managing to score just five points on 2-of-4 shooting, with one 3-pointer, two assists, and one rebound through 19 minutes of action.

    Advice: Yes, Terry is starting for the Rockets, but at this point in his career he's simply not capable of the consistency required to be an asset in standard leagues. He's locked into a timeshare with Pablo Prigioni, which essentially cancels out the value of each player, and this is a situation that should be avoided in most leagues. Prigioni put up 10 points, six rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, three steals, and one turnover over 29 minutes of action, but he'd been nearly invisible in his previous two outings.

    Kevin McHale said that Patrick Beverley (wrist) probably won't be back this season.

    Deron Williams (illness) will play Sunday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Williams struggled badly in his last outing, but he'll look to bounce-back today with a very favorable matchup against the Lakers. Go ahead and get him active, and those that were expecting big minutes for Jarret Jack should probably temper their expectations. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:25 am
  • Deron Williams (illness) a game-time decision
    Deron Williams (illness) is a game-time decision vs. the Lakers on Sunday.

    Advice: He clearly wasn't 100 percent vs. the Cavaliers on Friday and did not participate in practice on Saturday, but the Nets are desperate for a playoff berth and Williams will likely do everything he can to play. If Williams decides to sit this one out Jarrett Jack will see huge minutes and would be a must-start option in all leagues. Expect another update prior to tip-off. Rotoworld.com

    Jeremy Lin (illness) will not play vs. the Nets on Sunday.

    Advice: He is dealing with an upper respiratory infection, so hopefully he recovers in time for Monday's game vs. the 76ers. With Lin out of the lineup, Jordan Clarkson will likely log all the minute he can handle at point guard, while Wayne Ellington and Jabari Brown should also see some extra minutes on the wing.

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) questionable Sunday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Knight went through a pretty strenuous practice on Saturday and said that he feels like his explosion is back. The Suns desperately need to beat the Thunder to stay alive in the playoff hunt, so there is a good chance that Knight gives it a go. He will likely be a game-time decision again tonight, so his owners will want to check back for an update before activating him in lineups. If Knight is unable to play, Marcus Morris will be the primary beneficiary while Archie Goodwin will see more minutes as well. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The Mavericks desperately could have used Barea tonight with Monta Ellis (calf) out of commission, but instead they will have to lean on Rajon Rondo, Devin Harris, Richard Jefferson and Raymond Felton. This will be Barea's fourth consecutive game on the sidelines, and considering he is still experiencing soreness in his ankle, the Mavericks won't be in a hurry to rush him back. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Stuckey is returning from a three-game absence due to a calf strain, so it will be interesting to see how he holds up during the game. He isn't a must-own player by any means, but he is worth a look if you need help in scoring. C.J. Watson and C.J.

  • Russell Westbrook scores 37 points Saturday
    Russell Westbrook scored 37 points with eight boards, six assists, three 3-pointers and nine turnovers in a loss to the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: Westbrook's owners probably didn't even blink twice at this line which speaks volumes about his play recently. Kevin Durant isn't coming back this season, meaning Westbrook will arguably be the top play in fantasy leagues moving forward with the Thunder trying to clinch a playoff berth. Enjoy the show.

  • Damian Lillard is in a mini slump right now
    Damian Lillard made 4-of-11 from the field for eight points with three boards, 10 assists, one steal and three turnovers in 30 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

    Advice: He's in a slump. He made just 4-of-15 from the field on Friday and tonight was just his third game without a trey on the season. On the bright side, the Blazers are on a three-game winning streak. He also had four fouls in a game for just the third time in 2015.

  • Michael Carter-Williams plays just 22 minutes
    Michael Carter-Williams played 22 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday during a 108-95 loss with eight points, one rebound, three assists, two steals and three turnovers on 3-of-9 from the field.

    Advice: At least he only shot it nine times. Carter-Williams didn't play in the fourth quarter, but that's because the Bucks were down 73-59 at the time of his departure in the third. He has been the 228th best player in nine-cat leagues for total value before tonight and he's been trending down. He's not a must-own player. Rotoworld.com

  • Dennis Schroder double-doubles in loss
    Dennis Schroder started on Saturday against the Hornets with 17 points, four rebounds, 11 assists and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes during a 115-100 loss

    Advice: It took nine tries, but the Hawks finally lost a game with Schroder as the starter. He's been awesome with two double-doubles in both of his last two and he's headed for some extra fantasy value this week with Jeff Teague still receiving treatment on his ankle. Additionally, Schroder has put up big numbers in his last five, averaging 15.8 points, 3.2 boards, 6.8 dimes, 0.4 steals and 2.0 treys. He should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Teague using biowave on his ankle
    Jeff Teague said on Saturday he's been using biowave on his ankle.

    Advice: The treatment sends an electrical signal to the joint. It's a little discouraging to hear that Teague is having any kind of treatment on his ankle, so he's likely going to miss more games going forward. If you are in desperation mode, Teague isn't a must-own player because the Hawks are going to rest him a lot. Rotoworld.com

  • Gary Neal out for Sunday night
    Gary Neal (ankle) will not play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

    Advice: He is not close to a return and is a good bet to not play again this season. Neal has been out for three games due to an ankle sprain and is not worth owning in standard leagues. The Wolves will likely have a tight backcourt rotation again with Zach LaVine and Lorenzo Brown as the only true guards. Rotoworld.com

  • Ricky Rubio, Kevin Garnett are doubtful
    Ricky Rubio (ankle) and Kevin Garnett (knee) are doubtful to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

    Advice: This is pretty much status quo for Rubio, who hasn't played in any of the previous five games and seven of the last eight. He is basically a shut down candidate and is not worth owning in standard leagues. Zach LaVine is a nice player to own if you're fine with sub-par shooting while Lorenzo Brown is also a low-end add for dimes and steals. Rotoworld.com

  • Shabazz Napier (hip) doubtful for Sunday
    Shabazz Napier (hip) is doubtful to play against the Pistons on Sunday.

    Advice: He may have suffered the injury on earlier in the week because he didn't play on Friday and the team is calling it "right hip pain." If the Heat are going to miss Dwyane Wade (knee, questionable) and Napier, there should be a lot of minutes going to Tyler Johnson and Mario Chalmers. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeremy Lin should be fine for Sunday
    Jeremy Lin (illness) said he plans to play against the Nets on Sunday.

    Advice: He did leave the door open of him missing the game, saying he'll play "unless it gets worse." A couple starting guards could be sick for Sunday afternoon with Deron Williams also under the weather. Lin had his allergy issue on Friday and still played 36 minutes, so he should be good to go.

  • Jeff Teague (ankle) will not play against CHA
    Jeff Teague (ankle) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Hawks clinched the top seed in the Eastern Conference, so expect Teague to take his time. Plus, the Hawks can essentially just use the first round of the playoffs to get back on track because they won't be facing a very good opponent. With Teague out, it'll be Dennis Schroder getting the start. He's worth starting in all leagues tonight in a favorable matchup. Shelvin Mack will also step up. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (calf) questionable Sunday
    Rodney Stuckey (calf) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: Stuckey has been in street clothes for the past three games, and the Pacers may continue to err on the side of caution on Sunday. If Stuckey is unable to play, C.J. Watson and C.J. Miles will be the primary beneficiaries and would be worth a look in daily leagues. We should have another update after shootaround Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    J.J. Barea (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He has been sidelined for the past three games, but he has already said that he is hopeful to return on Sunday. Barea's presence off the bench would be crucial if Monta Ellis (calf) sits this one out, but he is still only worth a look in deeper leagues. If Barea can't go, expect Rajon Rondo and Devin Harris to log heavy minutes vs. the Pacers. Rotoworld.com

  • Deron Williams (illness) misses practice Sat
    Deron Williams (illness) was unable to practice on Saturday, leaving his status up in the air for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Williams was dreadful vs. the Cavaliers on Friday with five points, five assists and five turnovers in just 22 minutes, so this illness probably had something to do with it. If Williams is unable to play, Jarrett Jack would be in line for a huge chunk of minutes and would be a must-start option in all leagues. Expect another update following shootaround on Sunday.

  • Jason Terry catches fire, scores 17 points
    Jason Terry made 6-of-7 from the field with five 3-pointers for 17 points against the Wolves on Friday with three rebounds, four assists and one block in 28 minutes.

    Advice: That's good for a pristine 121.4 effective field goal percentage. As great as this line is, he still only had an 11.7 usage rate, which usually won't result in double-digit scoring unless it's in a 40-minute game. Fantasy owners looking for treys with some dimes can give him a look as long as they're not expecting a line like this one. Rotoworld.com

    Tyreke Evans scored 25 points on 10-of-15 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in the Pelicans' 102-88 win over his old Kings squad on Friday.

    Advice: Evans is towing the line big-time for his fantasy owners as he continues to produce despite an ankle injury. Anthony Davis added 24 points on 11-of-26 shooting with nine rebounds, one steal and six blocks in the win. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeremy Lin plays well in 36 minutes
    Jeremy Lin had team highs with 36 minutes, 18 points and five assists against the Raptors on Friday, adding seven rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He had an allergy issue and was a game-time decision, but it didn't seem to affect him. Lin has done a fine job in the starting lineup and not having Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill have allowed some extra shots to go around. He's worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • D-Will stars as Johnny 5 in Short Circuit 22
    Deron Williams scored five points with five rebounds, five assists and five turnovers in 22 minutes on Friday as he short-circuited against the Cavs.

    Advice: Jarrett Jack (26 minutes, 16 points, four rebounds, five assists, two steals) got the lion's share of minutes tonight but it has been the other way around for a while now. The timeshare between the two players is annoying, but Williams has been hot lately and owners might want to give him another game or two before moving him to their benches. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Thomas scores 18 off the bench
    Isaiah Thomas scored 18 points against the Knicks on Friday with one rebound, six assists and two 3-pointers on 4-of-13 from the field.

    Advice: He has struggled since returning from a back injury, but getting 24 minutes tonight is an encouraging sign. Thomas was playing around 30 minutes per game before his injury and posting an elite usage rate, so he should be set for a bigger chance against the Clippers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Dennis Schroder double-doubles vs. Heat
    Dennis Schroder double-doubled against the Heat on Friday with 12 points, 11 assists, three boards, one steal and two turnovers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: He didn't shoot the ball well in the win, making 3-of-10 from the field. It's unknown how much longer Jeff Teague (ankle) will be out, but tonight wasn't just rest for him because the Hawks were at home. Considering the Hawks have locked up the No. 1 seed, we should see Teague on the sidelines at least a few more games the rest of the way. Schroder is worth owning in all standard leagues.

  • Wall at it again with 32 points, nine boards
    John Wall scored 32 points on 12-of-30 shooting (2-of-4 3PTs, 6-of-8 FTs) with nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and six turnovers in the Wizards' 110-107 double-overtime win over the Hornets.

    Advice: It's a nice win for the Wizards to take some of the heat off of them and though Wall's efficiency slipped he's still doing big things for owners. The fact that they're struggling mightily should keep them hungry for at least the next week or so. 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

  • Dennis Schroder will start Friday vs. Miami
    Dennis Schroder will slide into the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. Miami with Jeff Teague (ankle) unavailable.

    Advice: We've seen this movie before, and basically every time Schroder starts, he's an excellent guy to target in daily leagues. Through seven starts this season Schroder has compiled averages of 14.0 points, 7.4 assists, and 0.9 steals per game. With a favorable matchup against Miami tonight, he's a great, low-budget play in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Rose to be cleared for contact next week?
    Bulls' head coach Tom Thibodeau said that Derrick Rose (knee) will likely be cleared for contact by next week.

    Advice: Rose has been doing some non-contact work for a little over a week now, and he's been making steady progress without experiencing any setbacks, which is welcome news for a guy who has spent much of the past three years on the sidelines. It appears he's going to make it back in time for the playoffs, but his fantasy season is essentially kaput, and he belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com

    J.J. Barea (ankle) said he is hopeful he'll be able to return to the lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: We'll be considering Barea questionable for that one, and it'll be Devin Harris as the primary beneficiary for however long Barea is out. Harris is averaging 8.9 points, 2.1 assists, and 1.1 three-pointers through the month of March, so he can be viewed as a low-end option in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Robinson (knee) may not be retained by LAC
    The Clippers are reportedly waiting to see how Nate Robinson's knee is recovering before deciding whether or not to sign him for the remainder of the season.

    Advice: Robinson's second 10-day contract with the club expired on Thursday, and given that the Clippers have not yet signed him, he's not going to be available for Friday's game vs. the Sixers. Through nine games with the Clippers, Robinson put in averages of 5.1 points and 2.2 assists over 14 minutes of action. His reserve minutes will likely go to Austin Rivers, and at this point, it's safe to cut Robinson in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Carter-Williams fouls out vs. Bucks
    Michael Carter-Williams fouled out in 29 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday, making 3-of-11 from the field for 13 points with five rebounds, eight assists, four steals and two turnovers.

    Advice: He finally stopped shooting on Tuesday with just four shots from the field and he seemed to making a conscious effort to not force shots -- a very good thing. In his previous March games, Carter-Williams made just 28.1 percent on his shots from outside of the paint, which accounted for over 40 percent of his shot total. Plus, his turnovers are way too high at 4.0 per game in 33.3 minutes per game. What’s makes it even worse is that the 76ers are playing great ball right now without him. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Beverley seeking 2nd opinion on wrist
    Patrick Beverley is reportedly seeking to get a second opinion on the torn ligament in his left wrist to decide whether or not he will need to undergo surgery.

    Advice: We'll be monitoring this situation closely, but with Beverley set to miss at least the next week of action, he belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will man the point guard position in his absence, but neither guy is really capable of doing enough on the stat sheet to be considered a viable option in standard leagues.

  • Ricky Rubio (ankle) doubtful Friday vs. HOU
    Ricky Rubio (ankle) is doubtful to play Friday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: If Rubio is again unavailable, it would be his fifth consecutive game on the sidelines, and Zach LaVine would draw yet another start. LaVine has been excellent over the past four games, averaging 19.0 points, 4.5 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 three-pointers and 4.8 turnovers per game, so he's worth a look in all standard leagues if you can live with the turnovers.

    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.

    Patrick Beverley (wrist) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves, as expected.

    Advice: Beverley is dealing with a torn ligament in his wrist, and his fantasy season is likely over. Jason Terry slotted into the starting point guard spot on Wednesday, but he only managed to put up two points, two rebounds, three assists, and four turnovers through 27 minutes of action, so he's not a great guy to own in standard leagues. James Harden is going to be the primary ball handler with Beverley out, so he stands to gain the most in Beverley’s absence.

"There's no excuses, I have to play better," said Thomas. "I'm my biggest critic, I have to come out and play better, offensively and defensively." Thomas will have three more weeks to shake the rust off and should be held in standard fantasy leagues while he's healthy. Rotoworld.com

    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.

    Russell Westbrook didn't make a basket after the first quarter in Wednesday's ugly 130-91 loss to the Spurs, finishing with 16 points, four rebounds, seven assists and two steals on 5-of-16 shooting.

    Advice: Given the score, it's pretty easy to understand Westbrook finally having an off night, and it didn't help that he didn't play in the fourth quarter. The good news is that he's healthy and probably really ticked off, and will take his anger out on the poor Jazz on Saturday. He came into this one with seven triple-doubles in his last 14 games.

Terry's minutes should remain in this neighborhood while he should get high single-digit shots per game.

    Advice: Chris Paul and DeAndre Jordan double-doubled in the easy win, while Doc Rivers' son made the most of garbage time by hitting almost everything he shot.

    Advice: He had 10 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds on Monday, and while the shooting and points have been disappointing, he's at least coming through elsewhere. If you started him this week, he's probably helping your team win. Rotoworld.com

  • John Wall gets hot late, Wizards still lose
    John wall scored 17 of his 34 points in the fourth quarter during a 103-101 loss to the Pacers on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: That's four losses in a row for the Wizards and they're back to playing some sub-par basketball after a nice run last week. As for Wall, he only scored 10.0 points per game in his previous two on horrific shooting, so at least his fantasy owners are happy with this game. With Bradley Beal (ankle) possibly out, we could see more big scoring lines from the All-Star. He'll get a favorable matchup at home against the Hornets on Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Dennis Schroder quiet in Hawks win
    Dennis Schroder hit just 4-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, three rebounds and three assists on Wednesday.

    Advice: The good news is he was shooting the ball, but he only played 20 minutes, which is his lowest number since March 11. The Hawks got hot in the fourth quarter when he was on the bench, and Jeff Teague stayed in the game to finish it off. Schroder has scored 11 or fewer points in three of his last five games, but had 18 and 21 in the two prior to this dud. Rotoworld.com

    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

    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

    Isaiah Thomas (back) will play against the Heat on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been out since Mar. 9 and there has been growing optimism that he'd be ready to go since Monday. Thomas was arguably the best sixth man in the NBA since joining the Celtics with his sky-high usage rate, so his fantasy owners should have him locked and loaded for tonight. Expect to see Jae Crowder, Evan Turner and Marcus Smart to lose some chances to score tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Pat Beverley (wrist) has ligament tear
    Patrick Beverley (wrist) suffered a torn ligament in his wrist and will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days, according to Yahoo! Sports.

    Advice: If he tore a ligament in his wrist, he's likely going to be out for the season and there's a good chance he'll need surgery. As for the prognosis, it could be a couple weeks or over a month. Regardless, his fantasy owners in redraft leagues almost certainly have to cut him. Jason Terry will likely start and get minutes in the 24-32 range with Pablo Prigioni backing him up. Additionally, coach Kevin McHale has used two different lineup combos in his last two games with James Harden as the point guard. Give Terry a look if you're looking for some treys and scoring.

  • Beverley set to decide on wrist in 7-10 days
    Patrick Beverley (wrist) is scheduled to meet with a specialists, but a decision won't be made on his status for another 7-10 days.

    Advice: There is reportedly a chance that Beverley will need a season-ending surgery on his wrist, but the Rockets will likely exhaust all other options first. Beverley's owners should probably move on at this point, but we will update his status once we know more. Jason Terry will assume the starting point guard duties for the Rockets, and he is worth picking up in deeper leagues for his 3-point shooting. Pablo Prigioni should play more too, but he isn't a reliable option in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Evans was held out of Sunday's game vs. the Clippers, but he has been able to rest for a few days now, and he should be ready to resume his normal allotment of minutes tonight. With the Pelicans in the hunt for a playoff spot, Evans will likely continue to play through minor injuries for the foreseeable future.

    Advice: This is definitely exciting news for the Bulls, and Rose said his rehab is going smooth and he expects to be cleared for full contact sometime this week or the following. However, there is still no known timetable for his return, and fantasy owners outside of keeper leagues will want to avoid this situation because the Bulls will obviously proceed with caution.

    Damian Lillard scored a team-high 29 points vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, sinking 9-of-21 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with six 3-pointers, seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block.

    Advice: Lillard is shooting just 43.3 percent in March, but he's still averaging 20.3 points and 2.1 triples. He'll be leaned on even more if LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) and Nicolas Batum (back) miss any more games, so fantasy owners can sleep soundly with Lillard locked into their lineups. Rotoworld.com

    Jeremy Lin made the most of his start on Tuesday, racking up 19 points (6-of-11 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), two 3-pointers, two rebounds and seven assists.

    Advice: It's likely that Lin will start the rest of the season and fantasy owners should plug him into all active lineups. The Lakers are drifting toward the draft lottery but Lin will be playing with a purpose -- his $8.4 million contract expires this summer, setting him up for a nice payday in free agency. L.A.'s upcoming schedule also helps his case, as they're tied with Charlotte for the most remaining games. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Carter-Williams fouls out in 27 mins
    Michael Carter-Williams struggled vs. Goran Dragic and the Heat on Tuesday, scoring four points with three rebounds and four assists before fouling out after 26 minutes.

    Advice: He shot 1-of-4 from the field without any 3-pointers or defensive stats, which is a rarity -- in his past six games he was averaging 2.0 steals and 1.2 blocks. The Bucks snapped a five-game skid tonight but they're just 5-12 since Carter-Williams arrived and Brandon Knight headed to Phoenix. MCW is still a must-start fantasy PG despite tonight's dud -- his 35.1 percent shooting is more than offset by solid points, rebounds, assists, steals and blocks. Rotoworld.com

    Kyle Lowry said that he won't rush back from injury this time after he was forced to leave Tuesday's game vs. the Pistons due to back spasms.

    Advice: This doesn't sound very reassuring for his owners, and it looks like Lowry should be considered highly doubtful to play vs. the Bulls on Wednesday. We will pass along further updates once we know more, but his owners should have a backup plan ready. Greivis Vasquez will likely draw the start if Lowry can't give it a go and he is worth a look for anyone in need of 3-pointers and assists, while Lou Williams should see a nice uptick in minutes as well and would be a must-start option in all leagues.

    Patrick Beverley could potentially have a season-ending surgery on his wrist, but a final decision will be made on Wednesday morning after he goes through another evaluation.

    Advice: The Rockets want to know if there is any risk of further damage before proceeding with the surgery, so there is some hope that Beverley's season might not be over just yet. However, Beverley's wrist has clearly limited him for a while now, so it's going to be an issue moving forward regardless. Beverley's owners can feel free to hang tight until we know more on Wednesday, but they should start looking for a backup plan.

We will go ahead and consider Lowry questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls, but considering he was only able to play 11 minutes before his back tightened up on him, he is probably closer to doubtful.

The Raptors have waited until just before the tip before announcing Lowry's status over the past two games, and that's the situation we're headed for again today.

    Advice: "I’m fine," Lillard said. "I would tell you if I was worn down or [fatigued]. I got to play better. I don’t want to blame a four-game losing streak on, ‘I’m tired’ or ‘this is hurting or that’s hurting.’" With Nicolas Batum (back) and LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) hurting and unlikely for Tuesday's game, Lillard doesn't really have the luxury to consider a rest day with the Blazers fighting for a higher seed out West.

    Rodney Stuckey (calf) did not practice on Tuesday, and he is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: Williams did not hit a three but he made all six of his free throws, outplaying Jarrett Jack (19 minutes, 1-of-9 FGs) on a relatively encouraging night. We don't trust anybody in Brooklyn these days, but Williams, Thad Young (12 points, nine boards, two steals, one three) and Brook Lopez (31 points, four rebounds, one steal, two blocks, 7-of-7 FTs) are your best bets.

    Advice: He is out on Monday. Stevens said it'll be "as close to probable as it gets" regarding the sixth man's status for Wednesday. This just made a very tough decision for fantasy owners in weekly leagues. If Thomas can make it back, that would give him three games to put up stats.

    Advice: Byron Scott previously said that he wanted Lin to get back into the starting lineup before the season concluded, and he's running out of time if he wants to make that happen. Just because both guys could join the starting lineup doesn't guarantee either anything in terms of playing time, but it would certainly add some on-the-surface appeal to each down the stretch.

  • Lakers beat 76ers as Jeremy Lin scores 29 pts
    Jeremy Lin (back spasms) got hot in the second half of Sunday's 101-87 win over the Sixers, finishing with a season-high 29 points on 10-of-16 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs.

    Advice: Lin made two 3-pointers with five boards, five assists and one steal, and he did it all in just 29 minutes of action. His back was reportedly 6-8 inches out of alignment as recently as Saturday, which makes tonight's sparkling performance even more impressive. He's expected to start the final 10 games of the season, unless Byron Scott changes his mind, which is good news for roto owners and anyone whose season continues until the bitter end. As a late-round value with upside, Lin deserves to be owned in most standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Gary Neal sprains left ankle, will not return
    Gary Neal sprained his left ankle on Sunday and he's not expected to travel with the Wolves for Monday's game in Utah.

    Advice: Neal just returned from a four-game absence and it's possible that this latest issue will cost him some time on the shelf. Expect Chase Budinger to see an uptick in minutes off the bench for the shorthanded Wolves if Neal misses any additional action. Rotoworld.com

  • John Wall sputters in lopsided loss to Kings
    John Wall sputtered vs. the Kings on Sunday with nine points, four rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 33 minutes.

    Advice: He shot 3-of-10 from the field and lacked his usual energy, and none of his teammates picked up the slack in a lopsided loss to the Kings. Wall is allowed the occasional dud and he'll need to have a short memory as the Wizards travel to Golden State to finish their back-to-back set on Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Barea (ankle) has no timetable to return
    Head coach Rick Carlisle said that J.J. Barea's ankle injury isn't too serious, but he said there is no timetable for his return.

    Advice: Barea sprained his ankle at practice Saturday and isn't even traveling with the team, so we will go ahead and consider him doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs. We will track Barea's status closely, but it's safe to drop him in most leagues. Devin Harris will get some more ball-handling responsibilities off the bench following this news and is worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Russell Westbrook triple-doubles yet again
    Russell Westbrook put up his 10th triple-double of the season on Sunday, scoring 12 points on 5-of-16 shooting, to go with 10 rebounds, 17 assists, four steals, two blocks and six turnovers over 34 minutes of action.

    Advice: Ridiculous. Westbrook become the first player since Jason Kidd to have at least 10 triple-doubles in a season, and he also matched his career-high in assists tonight. He's been absolutely stupendous, and with Serge Ibaka (knee) and Kevin Durant (foot) out for the remainder of the regular-season, Russell is going to continue to flirt with video game-like lines. As a reminder, Westbrook was taken No. 4 overall on draft day, only behind Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley, and O.J. Mayo. Rotoworld.com

  • Austin Rivers scores two points on 1-of-6 FGs
    Austin Rivers had two points on 1-of-6 shooting in 18 minutes off the Clippers' bench on Sunday, adding one rebound and one block without any assists or steals.

    Advice: The coach's son is shooting under 30 percent in his past five games. He continues to play a 15-minute role out of necessity, as Jamal Crawford's calf injury has him out indefinitely, but Rivers doesn't offer any fantasy upside. His paltry steals totals don't even tell the full story defensively, as he and Nate Robinson (seven points, three assists in 10 minutes) are getting carved up by opposing guards on a nightly basis. Both of L.A.'s backup guards belong on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Carter-Williams scores 19 points w/ full line
    Michael Carter-Williams finally had a good shooting performance on Sunday, scoring 19 points on 9-of-14 shooting, adding five assists, three rebounds, four steals, two blocks, one 3-pointer and six turnovers through 34 minutes of action.

    Advice: The turnovers were an issue, but owners have to be happy with the fact that he shot over 50 percent from the field for this first time in his last seven games. MCW's numbers are down since arriving in Milwaukee, averaging 14.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, 5.6 assists, and 1.7 steals per game on 38.3 percent shooting from the field. The steals are nice, but the poor shooting and minimal 3-point shooting really limits his upside. Rotoworld.com

  • Dennis Schroder scores 18 pts on 8-of-13 FGs
    Dennis Schroder provided a rare bright spot for the Hawks on Sunday, coming off the bench for 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting, two 3-pointers, three boards, five assists, one steal and one block.

    Advice: He turned the ball over twice in 24 minutes and has proven to be a steady contributor as the leader of Atlanta's second unit. Schroder is flirting with late-round value in just 25 minutes per game over the past few weeks, but he's best deployed as a spot-starter if and when Jeff Teague is rested -- with back-to-back sets coming up on Friday/Saturday and Monday/Tuesday, it's possible we'll see Schroder starting at PG in the near future.

  • 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

  • Randy Foye (illness) will not play Sunday
    Randy Foye will reportedly sit out Sunday's game due to a stomach illness.

    Advice: This news breaks an hour before tip-off, giving owners a short window to plug in a replacement guard. Will Barton and Gary Harris should gain the most in his absence, with Harris a likely starter. Foye has been terrific in a starting role lately, averaging 18.3 points and 3.7 triples over his past three games, so this is a tough break for fantasy owners relying on him in a playoff matchup. Consider him questionable to return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Thomas (back) unlikely for Monday
    Brad Stevens said that Isaiah Thomas' (tailbone, elbow) new tentative return date will be mid-to late next week.

    Advice: Owners will need to check back for another update on Thomas' status on Monday, but given his new timeline, it's a pretty sure bet he won't be active tomorrow. Marcus Smart, Evan Turner, and Avery Bradley will continue to step up in Isaiah's absence, with Bradley being the go-to guy on offense. After Monday, the Celtics have a home game against the Heat on Wednesday, and we'll be considering him questionable for that one. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Lowry (back) ruled out Sunday vs. Knicks
    Kyle Lowry (back) will not play vs. the Knicks on Sunday and Greivis Vasquez will take his spot in the starting lineup.

    Advice: It's a brutal blow for Lowry's fantasy owners, who can only hope that he's healthy enough to suit up in Detroit on Tuesday. Toronto is being cautious to avoid any long-term setback with the postseason just weeks away. "The problem is not whether [Lowry] can play through it but if he gets hit again," said coach Dwane Casey. Vasquez is a decent plug-and-play as a starter in Lowry's absence, especially if you need 3-pointers and assists. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyreke Evans, Omer Asik questionable Sunday
    Tyreke Evans (left ankle sprain) and Omer Asik (calf) are questionable to play vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

    Advice: Evans injured his calf on Friday and wasn't able to return, so his owners might view it as a good thing that the Pelicans cited his previously sprained ankle for the reason as to why he is questionable. Evans will likely be a game-time decision tonight, so his owners will have no choice but to to check back later for the official word on his status. If Evans can't play, Norris Cole would likely start and would be worth a look in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Damian Lillard scores 27 points with 7 dimes
    Damian Lillard scored 27 points with three rebounds, seven assists and two 3-pointers on 8-of-18 from the field during a 97-86 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Advice: He might have to be Russell Westbrook with all of these injuries. Lillard does a lot of work in isolation, but not having LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) for spacing will likely hurt his efficiency. Obviously, the usage should offset that. He'll be fine regardless. Rotoworld.com

  • Deron Williams scores 17 in the first half
    Deron Williams scored all 17 of his points in the first half during a 123-111 win over the Pacers on Saturday, adding one rebound, six assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: For the second night in a row, Deron disappeared in the second half. He looked good and was attacking the defense early on, so it's hard to say his performance was why coach Lionel Hollins didn't play him in the final 18 minutes. He's still worth starting in most leagues, but he's not someone who will carry fantasy owners with limited playing time. Rotoworld.com

  • Derrick Rose (knee) close to taking contact
    Coach Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose is close to taking contact in practice.

    Advice: Thibs still said he still doesn't know when Rose will be back, but he's certainly going to need to go through a practice or two before we have any idea when he'll be back. Fantasy owners can keep Rose on the wire in most leagues because the Bulls will handle his situation very carefully until the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

    Gary Neal (hand) is probable to play against the Hornets.

    Advice: He has been out since last Sunday due to a hand injury and it sounds like he'll be back for the home game. The Wolves were so thin on Thursday that they signed Sean Kilpatrick while Lorenzo Brown also played 26 minutes. If Neal can go, he'll be worth a look in deeper leagues. If he's on the wire, you can probably keep him their with the Wolves being extra cautious with injuries. Rotoworld.com

    Deron Williams, Markel Brown, Joe Johnson, Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez are starting on Saturday against the Pacers.

    Advice: They played a triple-overtime game on Friday and are on the road, so it was possible coach Lionel Hollins rested guys a la the Denver Nuggets. Williams was also benched for most of the second half and will get a chance to redeem himself. Rotoworld.com

  • Derrick Rose (knee) still listed as out
    Derrick Rose (knee) is still listed as out for Saturday against the Pistons.

    Advice: He is doing some non-contact stuff in practice and could get a full practice in at some point this month. Fantasy owners shouldn't be too eager in stashing Rose, especially with the fantasy playoffs just around the corner for most owners. Plus, Rose is unlikely to hit the ground running upon his return.

  • Carlisle wants pace to go faster
    Coach Rick Carlisle said the Mavs "took a step back" with the tempo on Friday night in a loss to the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Perhaps this concerns Rajon Rondo. While Rondo was on the bench last night, the Mavs had a pace per 48 minutes of 105.1 compared to 98.4 with the former Celtic. Whatever the reason, the Mavs really have to get back on track on offense and they'll look to do it against the Suns on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyreke Evans leaves game with calf injury
    Tyreke Evans left Friday's game midway through the third quarter due to a calf injury and did not return, finishing with two points on 1-of-4 shooting, five rebounds and four assists in 15 minutes.

    Advice: Evans was questionable for tonight's game due to an ankle injury so needless to say he's banged up. Norris Cole (16 points, five rebounds, four assists, two threes, 37 minutes) has had some standalone low-end appeal in 12-14 team leagues, but any time off for Evans would obviously boost him into easy late-round value with some upside beyond that. The Pelicans are in the thick of the playoff chase, so guys will push to play. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Westbrook is the sixth best fantasy play in 8-cat leagues this season despite playing just 54 games so far. He has also been the No. 1 and 3 play in 8- and 9-cat leagues over the last two months, basically averaging just under a 30-10-10 mark over the last 30 contests. Rotoworld.com

  • Rajon Rondo gets Conley'd in loss
    Rajon Rondo slowed down against the Grizzlies on Friday with 10 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and four turnovers.

    Advice: He miraculously made both attempts from the line tonight. Before tonight he did not have a single game this season with a free throw percentage of 100 percent, which sounds impossible for a starting point guard. If you wanted to know why Rondo isn't in the top 200 on per-game value this season, that stat sums it up. Rotoworld.com

  • Schroder scores 21 points off the bench
    Dennis Schroder scored 21 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 7-of-14 shots (including three treys) with three rebounds and four assists in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Yes, Kyle Korver (nose) was out but Schroder has been on the fantasy radar in 12-team leagues for a while, even if he hasn't really been able to produce enough for starting lineups. The Hawks will probably rest guys down the stretch, and Schroder is somebody to take a hard look at. Rotoworld.com

    Michael Carter-Williams made 7-of-26 from the field for 19 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: If your team is going to have the most offensive rebounds in almost 50 years, it certainly helps to have MCW out there to miss all those shots. In his last four games, he's made just 29.9 percent from the field while taking 17 shots per night. He needs to stop shooting so much and it's no surprise the Bucks are the second worst offensive team since the break. Rotoworld.com

  • John Wall (ankle) goes through shootaround
    John Wall (ankle) went through shootaround on Friday following an ankle tweak against the Jazz on Wednesday.

    Advice: While the Wizards are on the road against the Clippers tonight, they're not in a back-to-back set. We think Wall will give it a go even though coach Randy Wittman has hinted that he could stagger the rest for his guys. The Wizards have a road-road back-to-back set coming up with a game in Sacramento on Sunday and in Golden State on Monday. Wall will carry a little more risk for both of those games. Rotoworld.com

    While Isaiah Thomas (tailbone, elbow) continues to improve, Celtics’ head coach Brad Stevens said he's unlikely for Sunday's game vs. Detroit, as well as Monday's game vs. Brooklyn.

    Advice: "He continues to feel better," said Stevens. "He's still very unlikely for Sunday, which I assume means unlikely for Monday. Holding pattern." That means Thomas will return for Wednesday's game vs. Miami at the earliest, and we'll continue to follow this situation closely. With Thomas out, Marcus Smart, Evan Turner, and Avery Bradley will continue to see some increased opportunity, with Bradley offering the most upside. Rotoworld.com
