  • Tyler Hansbrough a game-time decision
    Tyler Hansbrough will be a game-time decision on Wednesday due to his shoulder injury.

    Advice: The Raptors play the Hawks tonight, but Hansbrough doesn't have much fantasy appeal whether he's in uniform or not. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Miller heading toward starting gig?
    Mike Miller isn't expected to start for the Cavaliers on Wednesday, but Dave McMenamin is suggesting that it could happen sooner than later.

    Advice: Miller would likely replace Shawn Marion at shooting guard, and while it's a good idea in theory, we can't imagine Miller's body being able to handle more than 20 minutes a game, and even that could result in an early injury for the fragile sharp shooter. Rotoworld.com

  • Marvin Williams to play SF Wednesday
    Marvin Williams should get plenty of minutes at small forward on Wednesday in order to match up with the Blazers.

    Advice: It doesn't really matter where Marvin plays, as he's just not that good these days. However, this should also mean more Cody Zeller at PF and Zeller has been playing pretty well over his last few games. Rotoworld.com

  • Gary Neal ruled out for Wednesday
    Gary Neal's shoulder injury will keep him out of Wednesday's game against the Blazers.

    Advice: No surprise here, but P.J. Hairston is back from his ankle injury and could get Neal's minutes tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • P.J. Hairston should play through ankle
    P.J. Hairston is expected to play on Wednesday despite a sprained ankle.

    Advice: He started a game recently but was disappointing, so we're not expecting much from him tonight, either, despite the absence of Gary Neal (shoulder). Rotoworld.com

    Kyle O'Quinn is a game-time decision on Wednesday due to his ankle injury.

    Advice: He hasn't played since the opener and there are no guarantees he'll be ready to go tonight. With Nikola Vucevic leading the league in double-doubles and playing like an all-star, the Magic can survive just fine without him. Rotoworld.com

  • Jamaal Franklin could return to NBA in Jan.
    Ex Grizziles guard Jamaal Franklin could return to the NBA in January.

    Advice: He's currently playing in China and scored scored 53 points on 19-of-29 shooting yesterday. He's eligible for a return to the NBA in January, but regardless of where he lands, 53 points might be a good over-under for the total points he might score over the last few months of season.

  • Pistons send Tony Mitchell to D-League
    The Pistons have sent Tony Mitchell to the D-League.

    Advice: How irrelevant has Mitchell been over the last year? Our last post about him happened almost a year ago on Dec. 13, with a headline reading "Pistons send Tony Mitchell to D-League." Rotoworld.com

  • Lakers working on deal with F Earl Clark
    The Lakers are on the verge of signing F Earl Clark to a one-year contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Advice: He'll help make up for the loss of Julius Randle, as well as the current injury to Carlos Boozer, but might also hurt the strong play of Ed Davis. Then again, Clark has never really lived up to the hype, but is averaging close to 30 points in the D-League this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Nikola Mirotic logs 21 minutes off CHI bench
    Nikola Mirotic came off the bench for the short-handed Bulls on Tuesday, making 1-of-5 shots to finish a loss in Denver with four points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

    Advice: He played 21 minutes and is a nice fantasy option with Taj Gibson (ankle) and Joakim Noah (eye, knee) both out of commission, though he usually scores more without the defensive stats. Gibson could return Friday and Noah is questionable, so keep in mind that Mirotic isn't guaranteed inflated minutes this week. Rotoworld.com

  • Cameron Bairstow struggles in first NBA start
    Bulls rookie Cameron Bairstow earned his first career start at PF on Tuesday, notching two points, two rebounds, one assist and one block in 19 minutes.

    Advice: He filled in at PF due to the absence of both Joakim Noah (knee, eye) and Taj Gibson (knee), but racked up four fouls and struggled defensively, which won't endear him to Tom Thibodeau. As tonight's line indicates, Bairstow can be ignored for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Aaron Brooks scores 16 points in 22 minutes
    Aaron Brooks scored 16 points in 22 minutes in Tuesday's road loss, taking advantage of extra playing time following Derrick Rose's departure with hamstring tightness.

    Advice: Brooks has scored double-digit points in four straight games and he's worth deploying if you need scoring and 3-point shooting, with a trickle of steals and assists. Rose is questionable to return for Friday's game, so anyone targeting Brooks should keep an eye on Chicago's ever-changing injury report. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Kirk Hinrich (chest) plays well in return
    Kirk Hinrich returned from a chest injury vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday, scoring 10 points with eight assists and one steal in 31 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: He made two 3-pointers and Derrick Rose left early with hamstring tightness, which opened up more minutes in the second half for Hinrich and Aaron Brooks. Hinrich should start vs. the Celtics on Friday if Rose can't suit up, but even as the Bulls' starting PG he's a mediocre fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:07 pm
  • Cameron Bairstow starting for Bulls on Tues.
    Bulls F Cameron Bairstow will start Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Joakim Noah (eye, knee) and Taj Gibson (ankle) are out and Pau Gasol is filling in at center, and coach Tom Thibodeau likely didn't want to disrupt his bench by starting Nikola Mirotic at PF. Bairstow has played a total of 11 minutes this season and fantasy owners should leave him on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:13 pm
  • Kirk Hinrich (chest) ready to play Tuesday
    Kirk Hinrich (chest) will play vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's probably not 100 percent healthy, but the Bulls' tough veteran will suit up as Derrick Rose's primary backup. As long as Rose is healthy there's no reason to touch Hinrich in 12-team fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:37 pm
  • Gary Neal (shoulder) doubtful for Wednesday
    Gary Neal (sprained left shoulder) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. Portland.

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

  • P.J. Hairston (ankle) probable for Wednesday
    P.J. Hairston (ankle) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. Portland.

    Advice: Hairston could see some extended run with Gary Neal (shoulder) listed as doubtful, and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) out for Wednesday's game. However, Hairston is averaging just 6.0 points and 1.5 three-pointers as a starter, so there's not much to like here. Rotoworld.com

  • Kirk Hinrich (chest) questionable for Tuesday
    Kirk Hinrich (chest) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Denver.

    Advice: Hinrich doesn't offer much fantasy value while Derrick Rose is healthy, and his status will have a greater impact on Aaron Brooks' minute allotment. Stay tuned, but whether he plays or not should be of little concern to owners in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:36 pm
  • Raymond Felton tweaks ankle, not serious
    Raymond Felton tweaked his right ankle during Tuesday's practice, but according to head coach Rick Carlisle, the minor tweak is not considered serious.

    Advice: Raymond Felton is fighting for minutes with Devin Harris, Jameer Nelson, Monta Ellis, and J.J. Barea, and he wasn't even able to get off the bench during his last outing. Felton should remain on the waiver wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:04 pm
  • Mike Miller runs w/ starter during practice
    Mike Miller ran with the starting unit during Tuesday's practice, but head coach David Blatt hasn't yet made a decision who will start at shooting guard on Wednesday.

    Advice: This is something worth watching, as Shawn Marion's status as the starting SG has always been viewed as a short-term experiment. Rookie Joe Harris' name has come up as a potential starter in the past, but his minutes have come down a bit and it appears he's lost some momentum. Miller is a quality 3-point shooter, and LeBron James is a fan of him from their days together in Miami. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with Miller, but it's certainly a situation worth monitoring. Rotoworld.com

  • Mirotic mildly productive in 28 minutes
    Nikola Mirotic scored 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting with two threes, five boards and one assist in 28 minutes off the bench on Monday.

    Advice: This was the fear in making a big play for Mirotic -- that Pau Gasol would return and negate the opportunity created by Taj Gibson's injury. Tom Thibodeau doesn't sound convinced that Gasol (calf) will play in Denver on Tuesday so there is some hope for another chance, and for what it's worth Joakim Noah played through a minor eye injury tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Brooks scores 10 points in 23 minutes
    Aaron Brooks scored 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: With the Bulls' point guard position in constant flux, there's not a lot to hang onto here for owners. If you want to move on, it makes sense, but if you want to see if he's the last point guard standing you better know it's a risky stash. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:41 pm
  • Felton a DNP-CD on Monday
    Raymond Felton returned from his suspension but did not play on Monday due to coach's decision.

    Advice: Felton will only be on the fantasy radar if the Mavs suffer a number of injuries. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:17 pm
  • Canaan quiet in start for Beverley
    Isaiah Canaan was quiet in another start for Patrick Beverley (hamstring) on Monday, scoring seven points with three assists and a steal in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Canaan hit 2-of-8 shots with a three and on the whole he doesn't have any real fantasy value. If you want to give him a desperation look or use him in DFS games, he's probably a coin flip to pay off at best. Beverley has about a week on his initial timetable. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:31 pm
  • Gary Neal out for game w/ shoulder contusion
    Gary Neal suffered a left shoulder contusion against the Clippers on Monday and will not return.

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

  • Kirk Hinrich will not play vs. Jazz
    Kirk Hinrich (chest) will not play against the Jazz on Monday.

    Advice: He did not get a chance to warm up and it would appear he's going to miss more time. Aaron Brooks will be getting minutes and we should know more when we find out the status of Derrick Rose (hamstring). Hinrich has very low fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

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

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

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

  • Tyler Hansbrough will not play on Monday
    Tyler Hansbrough (shoulder) will not play against the Suns on Monday.

    Advice: He doesn't do much while he's on the court and has very little fantasy value. Hansbrough is not worth owning in just about any league. Rotoworld.com

  • P.J. Hairston (ankle) out on Monday night
    P.J. Hairston (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: For some reason they upgraded him to questionable, but they're pulling him out 90 minutes before the game. Hairston was losing ground in his brief opportunity, so he's unlikely to be a key contributor. Gary Neal and Gerald Henderson are low-end plays tonight. Rotoworld.com

    P.J. Hairston (ankle) is now listed as questionable on Monday to face the Clippers.

    Advice: He's been limited in practice and it would be a surprise to see him on the court. It will likely be Gerald Henderson and Gary Neal getting most of the minutes on the wing next to Lance Stephenson. Hairston can be left on the wire in just about all leagues. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: It's not a lock that Felton will return on Monday, but he's healthy enough to do so and his suspension has ended. Even if active, Felton has a lot of work to do as he's currently at the bottom of the point guard depth chart behind Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris and J.J. Barea. Rotoworld.com

  • Kirk Hinrich being called questionable Monday
    Kirk Hinrich (chest) is now being listed as questionable for Monday.

    Advice: Previously listed as doubtful, Hinrich must be feeling better than anticipated. Hinrich is a tough player, but it would be a little surprising to see him return as soon as Monday's game. With Derrick Rose (hamstring) also iffy, Aaron Brooks could be in line to start at point guard. E'Twaun Moore would also see some run if Rose and Hinrich sit. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:53 am
  • Joakim Noah calls Mirotic a difference-maker
    Joakim Noah said Nikola Mirotic is a "difference-maker at the offensive end."

    Advice: Mirotic balled out on Friday without Taj Gibson (ankle) and Pau Gasol (calf) available with 24 points, 11 rebounds and four 3-pointers, but he's going to need injuries ahead of him to produce like that regularly. He has an offensive game that's very capable of helping fantasy teams, but he's limited by his current role. Rotoworld.com

  • Marvin Williams FT-less streak at 354 minutes
    Marvin Williams didn't attempt a free throw vs. the Heat on Sunday, extending his FT-less streak to an astounding 354 minutes.

    Advice: He's one of four players in NBA history to begin a season with 300+ minutes without any free throw attempts, and there's no telling when the streak will end. He finished Sunday's game with seven points, one 3-pointer, two rebounds and one assist, and he's only worth considering if you're desperate for 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:48 pm
  • Kirk Hinrich (chest) doubtful for Monday
    Kirk Hinrich (chest) will be a limited participant during Sunday's practice, and is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: If both Hinrich and Derrick Rose (hamstring) are unable to suit up for Monday's game, Aaron Brooks is going to get all the minutes he can handle, with E'Twaun Moore seeing some extended minutes off the bench. Brooks makes sense as a speculative add in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyler Hansbrough won't play on Saturday
    Tyler Hansbrough (shoulder) will not play on Saturday against the Cavs.

    Kyle O'Quinn (ankle) is targeting a return to the lineup on Wednesday.

    P.J. Hairston (ankle) won't play on Sunday and is doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Hairston was gaining some momentum with the Hornets' short on healthy swingmen, but the rookie went down himself on Monday and needs a few more days to recuperate. He could return Wednesday vs. the Trail Blazers, but would still face significant competition from Gary Neal and Gerald Henderson. Rotoworld.com

  • Aaron Brooks stinks in 24 minutes
    Aaron Brooks played only 24 minutes against the Blazers during a 105-87 loss, scoring 12 points with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: The Bulls did not have Kirk Hinrich (chest) or Derrick Rose (hamstring) tonight, but this game was a blowout. Brooks should get more run on Monday with Hinrich and Rose very questionable to play. His owners shouldn't panic, but he's obviously not a must-own player because he is more of a stop-gap fantasy option. Rotoworld.com

  • Nikola Mirotic erupts w/ 24 points, 11 boards
    Nikola Mirotic stepped up with Taj Gibson (ankle) getting hurt against the Blazers on Friday, scoring a career-high 24 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Pau Gasol (calf) did not play tonight and X-rays were negative on Gibson's ankle, so he is not a lock for minutes. That said, Mirotic is capable of blocking shots, hitting treys and turning in good percentages, so it's not a bad idea to add him speculatively in some leagues. To be clear, we wouldn't cut a player you're going to miss. Rotoworld.com

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

    Kirk Hinrich (chest) is hoping to return this weekend according to Bulls.com writer Sam Smith.

    Advice: "I hope I’m better (Saturday)," said Hinrich. "Today was tough." Aaron Brooks is a good speculative pickup with Derrick Rose (hamstring) still day-to-day with no discernible timetable and Hinrich sort of in the same boat.

    Tyler Hansbrough (shoulder) will not play Friday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Hansbrough is averaging a meager 3.4 points and 3.8 rebounds over 17.5 minutes of action this season, so he's not worth owning in most leagues. His absence will result in more minutes for Amir Johnson and Patrick Patterson, but Amir is the guy to own here.

    Kyle O'Quinn (ankle) is a game-time decision to face the Hornets on Friday.

    Advice: He has been out since the opener with his ankle sprain. O'Quinn has been doing some work in practice and he should be able to play minutes close to 20, assuming he's active. With Aaron Gordon (foot) out, O'Quinn's return shouldn't hurt Tobias Harris and Channing Frye much. Rotoworld.com

  • Kirk Hinrich will miss Friday night in POR
    Kirk Hinrich (chest) will not play against the Blazers on Friday night.

    Advice: He suffered the injury in the fourth quarter and has been diagnosed with a chest contusion. Hinrich has missed a lot of time with bumps and bruises in his career, so Aaron Brooks makes sense as a pickup in all leagues right now. Expect E'Twaun Moore to get more run, too. Rotoworld.com

  • Aaron Brooks scores 12 points in a loss
    Aaron Brooks played down the stretch against the Kings during a 103-88 loss on Thursday, scoring 12 points with two rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Kirk Hinrich (chest) suffered an injury tonight and the extent is not yet known. If Hinrich is out, Brooks would pick up all the minutes he can handle. Considering it's just a chest injury, fantasy owners shouldn't be too aggressive on adding Brooks. Rotoworld.com

  • X-rays are negative on Kirk Hinrich (chest)
    X-rays were negative on Kirk Hinrich's chest and he was diagnosed with a contusion following Thursday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: He didn't play at the end of the game, but that doesn't necessarily mean his injury had anything to do with it. Hinrich finished with nine points, three rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes. If he is going to miss time, Aaron Brooks would almost become a must add as the only healthy point guard who is in the rotation. E'Twaun Moore would also get in the rotation. Rotoworld.com

    P.J. Hairston (ankle) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

    Advice: This will be Hairston's second consecutive missed game, but he really wasn't doing much when he was healthy. Gerald Henderson will likely draw another start on Friday with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) also sidelined, and he'll look to bounce-back from a scoreless performance vs. the Pacers on Wednesday.

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

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

    Kyle O'Quinn (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: O'Quinn looked good during shootaround, leaving him questionable to play, but the Magic will play it safe by resting him for a few more days. He may not log big minutes in his first game back, but there's a big opportunity for O'Quinn with rookie Aaron Gordon (foot) out indefinitely.

Consider Hairston day-to-day for now, while Gary Neal (concussion) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) will also sit this game out.

  • Gary Neal (concussion) inactive Wednesday
    Gary Neal (concussion) is inactive for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: He is still dealing with symptoms and will still have to pass the NBA's concussion protocol once he is feeling better. Neal has been a spark off of the Hornet's bench this season and when he returns he will be worth a look for owners in need of 3-pointers. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) is out Wednesday and P.J. Hairston (ankle) is doubtful, so Gerald Henderson will likely play all the minutes he can handle and is worth a look in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Marvin Williams (knee) questionable vs. Indy
    Marvin Williams (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He played on both Friday and Saturday despite being listed as doubtful and questionable, respectively, so there's a good chance that he'll be in uniform. That doesn't mean he'll have fantasy value, however, as he's coming off a scoreless game and hasn't been consistent enough for use outside of very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • P.J. Hairston doubtful for Wednesday vs IND
    P.J. Hairston (ankle) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: Hairston left the arena in a walking boot after Monday's loss to the Mavericks, so it's looking unlikely that he'll be able to play on Wednesday. With Gary Neal (concussion) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) already declared out for Wednesday, Gerald Henderson makes for a solid short-term add as he'll get plenty of run against the Pacers.

  • Gary Neal to miss Wednesday's game vs Pacers
    Gary Neal (concussion) will miss Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: Neal is still experiencing symptoms from the concussion that he suffered during Saturday's game against the Warriors and will miss his second consecutive game on Wednesday. With Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) already declared out and P.J. Hairston (ankle) listed as doubtful, Gerald Henderson will get all the minutes he can handle and will make for a solid plug-and-play option on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Hinrich scores 14 points with five assists
    Kirk Hinrich scored 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting with four 3-pointers, two rebounds, five assists and three steals in Monday's win over the Clippers.

    Advice: Hinrich doesn't hold 14-team value on the year despite averaging 28.4 minutes per game this season. With Derrick Rose (hamstring) returning any time he's a Hail Mary in daily leagues at best. Rotoworld.com

  • Mirotic productive with Pau Gasol out
    Nikola Mirotic was productive with Pau Gasol (calf) out on Monday, scoring 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds and two assists in 18 minutes.

    Advice: Mirotic needs an injury or two in front of him before he has any real fantasy value, but this is a good sign that he may be able to come through if given the chance. Rotoworld.com

  • Brooks quiet in another missed opportunity
    Aaron Brooks scored just seven points on 3-of-8 shooting with one assist in 20 minutes off the bench on Monday.

    Advice: Brooks is going to be measured by how he performs on the nights when Derrick Rose is invariably out, and by this measurement he'll be harder to trust next time out. Rose is day-to-day with his current hamstring injury. Rotoworld.com

  • P.J. Hairston leaves arena in a boot
    P.J. Hairston (ankle) left the arena on Monday with his foot in a walking boot.

    Advice: He was ruled out fairly quickly from his ankle sprain, so it would appear he's going to miss some time. Gerald Henderson had a nice game tonight and is worth a look as a short-term guy. Although, his upside isn't very high. He finished with six points and two 3-pointers in 10 minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • P.J. Hairston out for game with ankle sprain
    P.J. Hairston suffered a sprained right ankle on Monday and will not return.

    Advice: The Hornets are awfully thin on the wing now with Gary Neal (concussion) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) out. Hairston would have played quite a bit off the bench, but now it'll be Gerald Henderson likely getting all the minutes he can handle. Hendo is still only a short-term guy in deep leagues.

  • Gary Neal still dizzy, experiencing headaches
    Gary Neal (head) is still experiencing dizziness and headaches.

    Advice: Neal has no timetable to return from his concussion. He can't begin the concussion protocol until he's symptom-free for 24 hours, so Neal has a very real chance to miss at least a handful of games. Without him and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) available, Gerald Henderson, P.J. Hairston and Brian Roberts will pick up the slack. Rotoworld.com

  • Raymond Felton will begin suspension Monday
    Raymond Felton will begin serving his four-game suspension on Monday.

    Advice: Felton, finally healthy enough to return after sustaining a high right ankle sprain, will begin serving his suspension beginning Monday against the Hornets. Felton is not guaranteed a role when he does return, and that's expected to be on Monday, November 24 against the Pacers. Rotoworld.com

  • Marvin Williams (knee) invisible in start
    Marvin Williams (knee) started Saturday's game vs. the Warriors but went scoreless with three rebounds and one turnover in 15 minutes.

    Advice: Williams missed all three of his field goals and he's been dreadful over the past five games, averaging 4.2 points on 38.1 percent shooting. He doesn't contribute enough in other categories to make up the difference, and doesn't warrant fantasy owners' attention outside of the deepest leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Canaan picks up DNP-CD vs. Thunder
    Isaiah Canaan vanished from the Rockets' rotation with Patrick Beverley (hamstring) healthy on Sunday.

    Advice: Canaan was a tolerable fill-in fantasy option during Beverley's absence, but owners can obviously cut him in standard formats. He is apparently buried in the backcourt depth chart behind both Jason Terry (scoreless in 19 minutes) and Troy Daniels (scoreless in four minutes). Rotoworld.com

  • Gary Neal (concussion) will not play vs. Mavs
    Gary Neal (concussion) will not play vs. the Mavericks on Monday.

    Advice: Neal suffered the injury during Saturday's game, when he hit his head on the court, and he'll need to pass the NBA's strict concussion protocols before returning. Gerald Henderson, P.J. Hairston and Brian Roberts will each absorb some of the 24.7 minutes Neal has been averaging this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Raymond Felton to start suspension on Monday?
    The Mavericks are expecting Raymond Felton to be able to start serving his four-game suspension for gun charges on Monday.

    Advice: If Felton begins his suspension on Monday, he would be eligible to make his Mavericks debut Nov. 24 vs. the Pacers. However, he's going to be fighting for minutes with Jameer Nelson, Monta Ellis, Devin Harris, and J.J. Barea, so he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Canaan likely to return to bench role
    Isaiah Canaan likely will return to the bench on Sunday as Patrick Beverley (hamstring) is listed as active.

    Advice: Canaan did a decent job running the point for Houston, but owners in deep leagues should probably move on with this news. Canaan would need another injury to Beverley before he can be considered in most leagues again. Rotoworld.com
