  • C.J. Miles plays 29 minutes vs. Boston
    C.J. Miles played 29 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday during a 100-87 loss with 12 points, three rebounds, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

    Advice: He was expected to be hobbled by an ankle issue, but Miles looked fine. He'll have a couple days off to get ready for Charlotte on Friday in what might be the most important game for the Pacers this season. Miles is a risky player to own in standard leagues.

  • Jason Thompson double-doubles off bench
    Jason Thompson came off the bench behind Carl Landry (10 points, 4 rebounds) and hit 7-of-9 shots for 16 points and 10 rebounds in 21 minutes.

    Advice: He'll split minutes with Landry going forward and both of them played 21 tonight. Thompson is a good rebounder, but usually an offensive liability, so you can flip a coin on which player will be better from night to night. Derrick Williams also played 21 minutes and had 10 points, five boards and a 3-pointer, adding further confusion to the Kings' power forward position right now.

  • Cleanthony Early scores 14 off Knicks bench
    Cleanthony Early came off the bench and hit 6-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for 14 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Early is quietly playing decently over his last four games, averaging 13.3 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.3 3-pointers on 45 percent shooting over his last four. If you need a warm body, he certainly qualifies, even though he's not starting for the Knicks.

  • Andrea Bargnani leads Knicks with 22 points
    Andrea Bargnani hit 9-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 22 points, five rebounds and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Nets.

    Advice: This line was similar to vintage Bargs, and he's been worth owning since returning from injury, even though he has a tendency to disappear at times. Bargnani and Langston Galloway were the only two Knicks' starters to score in double figures.

  • Kris Humphries back in action for Wiz
    Kris Humphries returned from a groin injury on Wednesday and had six points, a rebound, steal and block in 15 minutes.

    Advice: Drew Gooden played 21 minutes and had 10 points, four rebounds and two 3-pointers, and Nene played just 13 minutes. Humphries probably isn't worth owning right now, but then again, none of the Wizards' power forwards are trustworthy right now, either.
    Today, 7:59 pm
  • Hollis Thompson scores 16 off Philly bench
    Hollis Thompson hit 5-of-10 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, two rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: He probably should have started over Jerami Grant, who started over Robert Covington. Thompson had scored a total of just eight points in his previous two games, so he's not reliable enough to plug into lineups right now. But he is worth keeping an eye on.
    Today, 7:45 pm
  • Jerami Grant a disaster in start for 76ers
    Jerami Grant, who started in place of Robert Covington on Wednesday, missed all five of his shots, scored three points, and did nothing else in the loss.

    Advice: Yuck. Hopefully you weren't enticed by the low salary in daily leagues and avoided him. Grant has the potential to put up decent numbers on any given night. Unfortunately, it only happens about twice a month or so.
    Today, 7:35 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver heating up for Pistons
    Anthony Tolliver started again on Wednesday and had 10 points, eight rebounds, four assists, a steal and two more 3-pointers on 4-of-8 shooting in 31 minutes.

    Advice: Tolliver had his first double-double on Tuesday with 13 points, 10 rebounds and three 3-pointers, and has now drained 12 treys over his last five games. His numbers haven't been great while filling in for Greg Monroe, but his last two games have been promising. If you need 3-pointers, he's worth a look until Monroe comes back, which tentatively will be on April 8.
    Today, 7:00 pm
  • Jason Thompson to bench w/ Landry starting
    Jason Thompson will come off the Kings' bench on Wednesday with Carl Landry taking over the starting PF job.

    Advice: George Karl hasn't given a specific reason for the switch. This shouldn't impact fantasy lineups in standard leagues, as Thompson was averaging a mere 5.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in March.
    Today, 4:54 pm
  • Carl Landry will start vs. Houston
    Carl Landry will start against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll start next to Omri Casspi and DeMarcus Cousins tonight. Landry will likely get around 20 minutes tonight and is worth a look in deep leagues. Derrick Williams has the higher upside.
    Today, 3:51 pm
  • Jared Dudley will return vs. Bulls
    Jared Dudley (knee, back) will play against the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's had back and knee issues in the past two weeks, so we're not expecting him to get significant playing time. Dudley can be left on the wire in all leagues.

  • C.J. Miles and Rodney Stuckey are available
    C.J. Miles (ankle) and Rodney Stuckey (wrist) are available to play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Frank Vogel said that both players are banged up heading into tonight, so they're likely to have their minutes limited. Miles has struggled to stay on the court even when he's entering a game at full health, so he's risky to start in any league. If he's unable to play through the injury, C.J. Watson, Solomon Hill and Damjan Rudez would step up.
    Today, 3:05 pm
  • Kris Humphries will play on Wednesday
    Kris Humphries (groin) will play against the 76ers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Feb. 25 and will likely have a restriction on his minutes. Humphries was playing around 18-20 minutes before his injury and could be back up around that time this weekend. Drew Gooden may lose some playing time.
    Today, 2:18 pm
  • C.J. Miles (ankle) questionable for Wednesday
    C.J. Miles (ankle) is questionable to play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Advice: He suffered a sprained right ankle on Tuesday and did not return. Miles has a ton of in-game injuries on the season and he'd be too risky to use even if he's a go. If he's out, expect more run out of Solomon Hill, Damjan Rudez, C.J. Watson and George Hill.
    Today, 12:10 pm
  • J.J. Hickson unlikely to play on Wednesday
    J.J. Hickson (knee) is only expected to play if it's absolutely necessary on Wednesday against the Jazz.

    Advice: He is technically questionable to play, but he'll be in uniform tonight. Without Hickson and Darrell Arthur (calf), Jusuf Nurkic and Kenneth Faried should have a higher floor for their minutes tonight. We'll likely see more of Joffrey Lauvergne as well. Hickson can be dropped just about everywhere.

  • Tony Allen (hamstring) doesn't practice Wed
    Tony Allen (hamstring) wasn't able to practice on Wednesday, and there is still no known timetable for his return.

    Advice: Hamstring injuries are no joke and the Grizzlies will want to make sure that he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Allen should be considered doubtful to play on Friday, but we will update his status once we know more. If Allen continues to sit, Vince Carter will likely continue to start and is worth a look in deeper leagues for his 3-point shooting, while Courtney Lee and Jeff Green will also benefit.
    Today, 10:23 am
  • J.J. Hickson (knee soreness) questionable Wed
    J.J. Hickson is battling knee soreness and he is questionable to play vs. the Jazz on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Nuggets haven't played since Saturday, so it's a little concerning that he is having trouble with his knee. Hickson actually started last game due to the absence of Danilo Gallinari (rest), but the Nuggets have nothing but ping pong balls to play for so they will likely err on the side of caution. If Hickson sits, Jusuf Nurkic may rejoin the starting lineup and could see major minutes if he can avoid foul trouble. Expect another update closer to tip-off.
    Today, 10:15 am

  • Jerami Grant starting, Covington benched
    Jerami Grant (illness) will return from a one-game absence on Wednesday vs. the Wizards, and he will rejoin the starting lineup which will shift Robert Covington to the bench.

    Advice: Grant has averaged just 4.3 points, 3.0 boards, 1.0 assist and 1.3 blocks in his last four appearances, so there is not a lot to get excited about here. As for Covington, Jason Richardson (knee) is still sidelined, so he should be able to get plenty of run off the bench and is still worth owning in most leagues for his elite 3-point shooting.
    Today, 9:20 am
  • Devyn Marble (eye) likely out for the season
    Devyn Marble was back at the Magic's practice facility for the first time since he had surgery on his eye, but the rookie likely won't even be able to practice for the remainder of the season.

    Advice: The Magic have no need to rush him back and they will take every precaution they can to allow him ample time to recover. We will track his progress closely, but it's safe to leave him on the wire in all leagues.

  • Kevin Durant to stick with Thunder for life?
    In a recent interview with Revolt TV, Kevin Durant said that he "would like to stick it out with one team for his entire career."

    Advice: "I love it here, man," Durant said. "I love my teammates, I love the city, I don’t really think about anywhere else." Durant is under contract for one more season with the Thunder, and there has been a lot of speculation that he would entertain the idea of playing for the Wizards. Despite all the troubles he had with his foot this season, there is no doubt that he is one of the best players in the NBA when healthy and he should have no problems getting a max contract when that time comes. Durant is out for the season after having bone graft surgery on his foot on Tuesday, but we will have plenty of updates on his status during his rehab and he should be able to return in time for training camp.

  • Lou Amundson aims to re-sign with Knicks
    Lou Amundson hopes to re-sign with the Knicks as a free agent this summer.

    Advice: He left zero room for doubt, saying, "I want to be a Knick next season." Amundson is understandably thrilled with his current starting role for New York, and he may prioritize court-time over wins when weighing contract offers this summer.
    Yesterday, 10:58 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver notches first double-double
    Anthony Tolliver recorded his first double-double of the season on Tuesday with 13 points and 10 rebounds in a win vs. the visiting Hawks.

    Advice: He also logged a season-high 40 minutes, adding three 3-pointers and one assist to round out a productive fantasy evening. Tolliver is shooting 38.2 percent in March, part of the reason he's a middling fantasy player even while starting for Greg Monroe (knee), but owners seeking 3-pointers should at least consider picking him up.
    Yesterday, 6:56 pm
  • C.J. Miles (ankle) now doubtful to return Tue
    Updating a previous report, C.J. Miles (sprained ankle) is doubtful to return to Tuesday's game.

    Advice: He sprained his ankle in the first quarter and was able to return for a while, but Rodney Stuckey took his place in the starting lineup to begin the second half. We'll pass along an update after the game.
    Yesterday, 6:09 pm
  • C.J. Miles returns after spraining ankle
    C.J. Miles sprained his right ankle early during Tuesday's game, but he has since returned.

    Advice: He dealt with a severe left ankle injury last season but hasn't had any issues this season, and Indy is fortunate that he returned in a must-win game vs. Brooklyn.
    Yesterday, 4:52 pm
  • Kevin Durant: 'This is just a small obstacle'
    Kevin Durant took to Instagram following his season-ending bone graft surgery on Tuesday, and described his recovery process as "a small obstacle" in the "big picture."

    Advice: We wish Durant the best in his recovery, and you can click the link below to see the full post for yourself. Durant, once seemingly invincible, has for the first time in his career had his season derailed by injuries, and there are no guarantees he's ready to go by the start of training camp next season. He's going to be a risky first-round selection next year, which is a very weird sentence to read/write.

  • Kris Humphries (groin) goes through practice
    Kris Humphries (groin) went through a full practice on Tuesday, and said he thinks he'll be available to play Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: Humphries has spent the past month on the sidelines, so he's likely going to be eased back into the rotation. With season averages of just 8.1 points and 6.7 rebounds, it's safe to leave Humphries on the wire in nearly all leagues.
    Yesterday, 11:01 am
  • Kevin Durant undergoes bone graft surgery
    Kevin Durant (foot) had bone graft surgery for the fifth metatarsal of his right foot on Tuesday and is expected to miss the next four to six months.

    Advice: While we've yet to see a team say a surgery was unsuccessful, it's worth noting that the Thunder deemed the surgery a success. The optimistic end of Durant's timetable would put him back on the court by training camp, while the longer end of of that timetable would having him returning at some point in October. We'll be keeping close tabs on Durant's recovery, but the 2015-16 season will mark the first in years where he's not the top option in fantasy drafts.

  • Tony Allen (hamstring) without a timetable
    Tony Allen (hamstring) does not have a timetable to return.

    Advice: He's not going to play on Monday and he could miss the entire week due to the aggravation to his hamstring. It'll be Vince Carter getting most of his minutes while Jeff Green also benefits. Allen can be dropped in all re-draft leagues.
    Monday, 3:40 pm
  • Jerami Grant (illness) out for Monday night
    Jerami Grant (illness) will not play against the Lakers on Monday.

    Advice: So that's at least three players in the Lakers at Sixers game who are out with an upper respiratory illness. With Grant out, JaKarr Sampson is going to get the start, but he's not a fantasy option. No Grant should help Robert Covington and Hollis Thompson. Fantasy owners in almost any league can't start Grant this week.
    Monday, 3:31 pm
  • Jared Dudley wants to re-sign with Bucks
    Jared Dudley would like to re-sign with the Bucks after the season.

    Advice: Excited by the youth infusion in Milwaukee and the leadership of Jason Kidd, Dudley is in a good place as a veteran leader on an up-and-coming team. Dudley did say he'd be willing to take less money on a multi-year deal, but it's too early to say whether or not the two sides will work something out.

  • Jared Dudley (back) confirms he'll play Wed
    Jared Dudley (back) confirmed that he'll be ready to play vs. the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Advice: "I'm 100% fine," he wrote on Twitter. "Just being pre cautious, I'll be ready [Wednesday]." This is excellent news for Bucks fans and any deep-league owners who have Dudley on their bench. He has had spurts of sustained value this year but is too risky for use in most leagues given the recurring nature of his back injury.

  • C.J. Miles scores game-high 28 points in win
    C.J. Miles poured in a game-high 28 points to help Indiana beat the visiting Mavericks on Sunday, making 9-of-12 field goals with five 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: Miles also went 5-of-6 at the FT line, richly rewarding owners who gambled on him despite the return of Rodney Stuckey (calf). He's been good enough to keep in all active lineups, especially since the playoff-hungry Pacers are heading into a four-game week.
    Sunday, 7:09 pm
  • Jared Dudley (back) will not play on Monday
    Jared Dudley will not play vs. the Hawks on Monday in order to give his ailing back some extra rest.

    Advice: Dudley has been able to play in the past two games for the Bucks, but they are wanting to be cautious with him since he had missed six consecutive games earlier in March. Dudley should be fine for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls, but he is still not a fantasy option outside of deeper leagues. Expect O.J. Mayo and Jerryd Bayless to see a few extra minutes off the bench Monday.
    Sunday, 4:52 pm

  • Jerami Grant lousy in start for Philly Sunday
    Jerami Grant struggled on Sunday with two points and two boards in a road loss at Cleveland, missing all four of his field goal attempts while going 2-of-4 at the free throw line.

    Advice: Grant's starting job is nearly irrelevant for fantasy purposes -- in three previous starts he averaged 6.7 points on 30.4 percent shooting, and was only worth owning for blocks (2.7). His defensive upside and 3-point range may be enough for ownership in deep leagues, but everyone else should steer clear of his FG percentage (37.8 percent) and FT percentage (59.7 percent).
    Sunday, 4:13 pm
  • Tony Allen (hamstring) won't play vs. Spurs
    Tony Allen (hamstring) will not play vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: Vince Carter will step into the starting lineup, but Jeff Green will probably see the biggest boost in value off the bench. Allen has no timetable to return, but considering how tricky hamstring strains can be, The Grizzlies will likely be cautious moving forward. Allen should be considered closer to doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Kings.
    Sunday, 2:45 pm
  • Kris Humphries (groin) will not play Sunday
    Kris Humphries (groin) will not play vs. the Rockets on Sunday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Feb. 26 and he remains without a timetable to return. Kevin Seraphin and Drew Gooden will continue to see a few extra minutes off the bench, but both players are not options in standard leagues. Humphries can be dropped everywhere until he is cleared to play.
    Sunday, 8:06 am
  • J.J. Hickson plays 26 minutes in start
    J.J. Hickson played 26 minutes in a start against the Blazers during a 120-114 loss on Saturday, scoring nine points with eight boards, two assists and three steals.

    Advice: Danilo Gallinari (rest) didn't play tonight, but Hickson only picked up four minutes from his Friday game. He's not a great player to add in most leagues for poor foul shooting and not much contribution to the defensive stats. The Nuggets are off until Wednesday and only play three games between now and Wednesday Apr. 8. That's not good.
    Saturday, 9:36 pm

  • Andrea Bargnani scores 14 vs. the Bulls
    Andrea Bargnani scored 14 points against the Bulls during a 111-80 loss on Saturday, adding seven rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes.

    Advice: The Knicks have lost two games this week 111-80 -- the Clippers beat them by that score on Wednesday. They also set a franchise record for losses in a season with 60 tonight. Is it the NBA Draft yet?
    Saturday, 7:52 pm
  • Cleanthony Early plays 18 minutes
    Cleanthony Early played 18 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday with nine points, one rebound, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He committed five fouls and made a couple mental lapses in the game. The Knicks were going to give him an extended look, but he's kind of squandering the chance. It looks like Ricky Ledo is the better add. Yes, these are your 2014-15 New York Knickerbockers.
    Saturday, 7:45 pm
  • J.J. Hickson will draw the start on Saturday
    J.J. Hickson will draw the start vs. the Blazers on Sunday.

    Advice: Danilo Gallinari is taking the night off in order to get some extra rest, but it's definitely surprising to see the Nuggets go with Hickson over Jusuf Nurkic. Hickson might flirt with a double-double vs. his former team, but he still belongs on the wire outside of deeper leagues.
    Saturday, 6:54 pm
    L, 98-84 @ Uta
  • Tony Allen (hamstring) questionable for Sun
    Tony Allen (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: He did not return from his hamstring strain on Friday and he's dealt with hamstring strains before this season, so Allen has a decent chance to miss this game. If he's out, expect Jeff Green to step up in the starting lineup while Courtney Lee will also benefit.
    Saturday, 4:37 pm
  • Cleanthony Early scores 12 points vs. Boston
    Cleanthony Early scored 12 points with five rebounds, one assist, three steals and one turnover in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: He was 5-of-13 from the field and he's finally starting to get some significant run. Alexey Shved (ribs) is likely out for the season, so Early could have an impact in deeper leagues. Until he starts to make shots, he's not worth owning in standard leagues.
    Friday, 9:35 pm
  • Il Mago Reappears: Andrea Bargnani scores 25
    Andrea Bargnani scored a game-high 25 points against the Celtics on Friday with seven rebounds, four assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: He played a season high in minutes and matched his season high in scoring. Bargnani was starting to fade before tonight with a six-point game on Wednesday while he only had 1.0 boards per game in his last two. He should still be worth owning in standard leagues even with his inconsistency.
    Friday, 9:31 pm
  • Tolliver scores 11 points with three treys
    Anthony Tolliver scored 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes on Friday against the Magic.

    Advice: Tolliver could end up starting for the rest of the season if Greg Monroe is shut down, and owners seeking 3-pointers should give him a hard look.
    Friday, 7:58 pm
  • Tony Allen (hamstring strain) leaves game
    Tony Allen suffered a left hamstring strain on Friday.

    Advice: He's had hamstring issues already this season and the Grizzlies are being blown out, so Allen is likely out for the game. If he needs to miss time, Courtney Lee and Jeff Green should pick up his minutes. Green would start and gain the most value. Allen finished with four points, four boards and one block in 19 minutes.
    Friday, 6:50 pm
  • Kevin Durant will have season-ending surgery
    Kevin Durant (foot) will have season-ending foot surgery and will be held out of basketball activities for 4-6 months.

    Advice: He is going to have a bone graft procedure because he is "showing signs of regression," according to the team. This will be his third surgery on his right foot and he's not a complete lock to be ready for training camp. If Durant needs six months to get back to basketball-related activity, he'll be looking at an October return. After five consecutive seasons of being the number one player in fantasy leagues, Durant's fantasy stock has plummeted more than almost anyone could have imagined. We hope we see the 2013-14 KD next season.

  • Kris Humphries (groin) out Friday vs. CHA
    Kris Humphries (groin) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hornets, as expected.

    Advice: Kevin Seraphin and Drew Gooden will continue to split Humphries reserve minutes, but neither guy is worth owning in standard leagues. With no clear return date in site for Humphries, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
    Friday, 9:23 am
  • Jared Dudley has awful shot in win
    Jared Dudley returned from his kneecap injury on Thursday, scoring two points with one rebound, one assist and one turnover.

    Advice: He had the worst shot you'll see all season with a backwards shot in the corner. We know that doesn't make sense, so click the link below to check it out. Dudley can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
    Thursday, 9:17 pm
    W, 95-91 * vs Chi
  • C.J. Miles scores 26 points in a loss
    C.J. Miles was the good version of himself against the Bucks on Thursday, making 7-of-14 from the field for 26 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He briefly left the game due to a leg injury and was able to return about seven minutes later in real time. Miles has been able to knock down 2.1 treys per game in his previous 16 games since the break, but he's been detrimental to most fantasy categories. Congrats if you streamed him on the light night.
    Thursday, 7:45 pm
  • Jared Dudley (knee) will play Thursday
    Jared Dudley (knee) will play Thursday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Dudley had some good stretches during the season, but his play has really fallen off during the month of March with averages of just 2.5 points and 3.0 rebounds per game on 22.2 percent shooting from the field. He'll likely be eased back into the rotation, so it's safe to leave Dudley on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
    Thursday, 3:20 pm
    W, 95-91 * vs Chi
  • Kris Humphries (groin) doesn't practice Thurs
    Kris Humphries (groin) was unable to practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Humphries was spotted going through a lot of individual work on Thursday, but his absence from practice would suggest he's doubtful for Friday's game vs. Charlotte. If he's unable to go, Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin will continue to split his reserve minutes. Seraphin can be viewed as a shot-blocking specialist in extremely deep leagues, while Humphries belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
    Thursday, 12:03 pm
  • Jerami Grant blocks five shots in start at PF
    Jerami Grant started at power forward against the Nuggets on Wednesday with six points, four rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and five blocks in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Can we please keep him in the starting lineup, Brett Brown? Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) missed tonight and perhaps he misses more time. Grant has 4.0 blocks per game in his two starts and he continues to post highlight-reel plays. He's still below 40 percent from the field and 60 percent from the line, so his ceiling is going to be capped for standard leagues. Give Grant a look if you're looking for some steals, blocks and treys.
    Wednesday, 10:55 pm
  • Cleanthony Early scores 18 off Knicks bench
    Cleanthony Early returned from an ankle injury and had a team-high 18 points, four rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-12 shooting in 25 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Knicks are painful, in all aspects - to watch, to use in fantasy, to watch some more - and Early has really struggled on the season. The points were nice, but he never seems to shoot 50 percent and he's just as likely to give you a three-point game as he is to come through like he did tonight. Then again, maybe the Knicks are ready to wind him up and turn him loose, so it's also possible this was a sign of things to come. Keep a close eye on him on Friday night, and pounce if he does anything.
    Wednesday, 9:04 pm
  • Andrea Bargnani scores six points in loss
    Andrea Bargnani played just 19 minutes and hit 2-of-7 shots for six points and one rebound in Wednesday's predictably ugly loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: Bargs broke a streak of 12 straight games in double figures and while he generally doesn't do much besides score 16 a night, he at least had blocked five shots in his previous three games coming in. He got into some foul trouble and the Knicks had no reason to use him with the game basically over after the first quarter. He should bounce back soon, but just don't expect him to do much besides score.
    Wednesday, 8:55 pm
  • Jerami Grant will start for L MAM
    Jerami Grant will start against the Nuggets on Wednesday night.

    Advice: It'll be his second start of his career. In his first start, Grant played 30 minutes for eight points, four boards, one assist and three blocks. He's worth a look in deeper leagues and could climb into the standard league convo with his high upside.
    Wednesday, 4:44 pm
  • Kris Humphries (groin) won't play vs. Pacers
    Kris Humphries (groin) will sit out again vs. the Pacers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Feb. 26 and it's anyone's guess when he'll return to action, though it's somewhat encouraging that he's traveling with the team. Nene, Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin will continue to play a few extra minutes in Humphries' absence.
    Wednesday, 3:24 pm
  • Cleanthony Early (ankle) will return vs. LAC
    Cleanthony Early (ankle) will play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has a good chance for minutes tonight with the Knicks missing a few guys on the wing. Early has been awful this season, making 33.8 percent from the field in his 31 games. We'll let you know if he does anything noteworthy tonight.
    Wednesday, 2:24 pm
  • Jared Dudley is questionable for Thursday
    Jared Dudley (knee) is questionable to play against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: He did go through practice, but that doesn't mean much because he went through practice on Monday and missed Tuesday's game. Dudley can remain on the wire in almost all leagues.

    W, 95-91 * vs Chi
  • Kris Humphries (groin) doubtful for Wednesday
    Kris Humphries (groin) is doubtful to play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has been on the shelf since Feb. 26 and his recovery has been unusually slow, so we would be surprised if he managed to play tonight. We will know more closer to tip-off, but Humprhies still belongs on the wire in most leagues. Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin will continue to see a slight uptick in minutes off the bench if Humprhries can't play.

  • Jared Dudley (knee) out Tuesday vs. Miami
    Jared Dudley (knee) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Dudley is inching his way closer to making a return after going through a full practice on Monday, but today will not be the day. He wasn't playing well before going down, and he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.

  • Cleanthony Early (ankle) probable Wednesday
    Cleanthony Early (ankle) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

    Advice: Early hasn't been able to do much this season, even when given big minutes, so he's not someone that should be added in most leagues.
    Tuesday, 1:52 pm
  • Tony Allen hoping for All-Defensive team
    Tony Allen said he wants to make the All-Defensive first time this year.

    Advice: "I’m sticking your elite two-guards in the league," Allen sayid. "Not even just two guards: I check the Durants, the Joe Johnsons, the Lebrons—the best player every night. They robbed me last yea. The only reason they didn’t put me in there is because I missed a lot of games, but this year I’m for sure first team." Allen has been on a tear as of late in averaging 11.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 2.8 steals over his last five games and needs to be owned in all standard fantasy leagues.
    Tuesday, 7:30 am
  • Allen productive in 27 minutes on Monday
    Tony Allen scored nine points on 4-of-5 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in Monday's win over the Knicks.

    Advice: Allen has been a top-75 player over the last month and it's well past time he's owned in all standard leagues.
    Mar 23, 8:02 pm
  • C.J. Miles makes 3-of-16 from the field
    C.J. Miles made 3-of-16 from the field against the Rockets on Monday for six points with two rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He missed all eight shots from deep. Miles is the ultimate boom-or-bust player and he's one of the best bets if you had to guess a player was going to shoot below 25 percent from the game. Of course, he could drop 25 his next time out. He is what he is.
    Mar 23, 7:06 pm
  • Kris Humphries (groin) out again for Monday
    Kris Humphries (groin) will not play against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: He might miss the entire month of March and has been out since Feb. 26. Humphries can be ignored in most leagues. Marcin Gortat and Nene get a tough matchup tonight.
    Mar 23, 6:59 pm
  • Cleanthony Early will not play vs. Memphis
    Cleanthony Early (ankle) will not play against the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: His ankle injury isn't getting much better and there's no word of him practicing yet. Early can be dropped in just about all leagues.
    Mar 23, 2:49 pm
  • Jared Dudley questionable for Tuesday
    Jared Dudley (knee) is questionable to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: He went through practice on Monday and could return after missing most of the second half due to an issue with his kneecap. Dudley would take minutes away from Ersan Ilyasova, but Ghosface Ilya is still worth owning in all leagues.
    Mar 23, 12:37 pm
    W, 95-91 * vs Chi
  • Anthony Tolliver fails to score in 25 minutes
    Anthony Tolliver failed to score in 25 minutes vs, the Celtics on Sunday, missing all seven of his attempts from the field.

    Advice: He did record three assists, two boards and one block, but it's tough to sugarcoat this performance. Tolliver was simply awful tonight, and the only good news is that he still saw 25 minutes of action. There is no telling when Greg Monroe (knee) will return, but Tolliver is still worth a look in deeper leagues for his 3-point shooting. Expect him to bounce back on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.
    Mar 22, 6:36 pm
  • Jason Thompson invisible in 13 bench minutes
    Jason Thompson had three points, four rebounds and no other stats in 13 minutes during his return to Sacramento's bench on Sunday.

    Advice: Kings coach George Karl prefers to pair Thompson with Ramon Sessions in the second unit, as he's better at running the court than fellow big men Reggie Evans or Carl Landry. Thompson is averaging 7.3 points, 5.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in just 19 minutes as a reserve this season, and he's not worth owning in standard leagues no matter where he begins games.
    Mar 22, 5:45 pm
  • Carl Landry approaches DNP-CD Sunday
    Carl Landry played two minutes during garbage time on Sunday, grabbing one rebound without taking any shots or free throws.

    Advice: Landry has fallen out of George Karl's rotation and it's easy to see why, as he's been a net negative for the Kings both offensively and defensively. Unfortunately for Karl and the Kings, they owe Landry a guaranteed $6.5 million in both 2015-16 and 2016-17.
    Mar 22, 5:44 pm
  • Andrea Bargnani scores 16 points vs. Raptors
    Andrea Bargnani scored 16 points during Sunday's road loss, making 6-of-13 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs with three rebounds and two blocks.

    Advice: The home crowd in Toronto booed Bargnani, as usual, and it must have been strange to see him healthy and productive after years of injury-shortened seasons for the Raptors. He posted a team-worst +/- rating of -20 on Sunday, but to his credit Bargnani's 16.6 PER is the highest of his nine-year NBA career. His fantasy owners shouldn't expect more than scoring with a handful of boards and blocks.
    Mar 22, 3:55 pm
  • Lou Amundson scoreless in 16 minutes
    Lou Amundson didn't score in 16 minutes vs. the Raptors on Sunday, missing all three of his field goals and both of his free throws.

    Advice: The nine-year veteran did chip in seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block, but he lost substantial playing time to backup big man Jason Smith (three points, three boards in 23 minutes). Neither guy is worth owning while they're locked in a value-killing timeshare at PF/C.
    Mar 22, 3:52 pm
  • Kris Humphries (groin) is inactive on Sunday
    Kris Humphries (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: There hasn't been a lot of information on Humphries' recovery and it's possible he sits out through the end of March. Humphries shouldn't be owners in just about any league right now, and his absence has opened up more minutes for Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin off the bench.
    Mar 22, 3:06 pm
  • Jared Dudley (knee) and Mayo (hamstring) out
    Jared Dudley (knee) and O.J. Mayo (hamstring) remain out indefinitely.

    Advice: Neither guy will play on Sunday, of course, and their absence leaves extra playing time available for Tyler Ennis, Jerryd Bayless, Ersan Ilyasova and others. Ilyasova is the best bet for reliable value, though Bayless is also worth a glance for deep-league owners seeking guard help. Dudley and Mayo both belong on the waiver wire until a return date is announced.
    Mar 22, 12:14 pm
    W, 95-91 * vs Chi
  • Cleanthony Early (ankle) out Sunday vs. TOR
    Cleanthony Early (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: Early has been sidelined since March 15, and with the fantasy playoffs in full swing, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
