  • Anthony Bennett aggravates ankle in return
    Anthony Bennett "re-sprained his ankle a little" on Sunday, according to Flip Saunders, but Bennett downplayed the injury after the game.

    Advice: "It felt good," he said. "It just got a little sore near the end, but I tried to push through." Saunders also said that Bennett looked "rusty," which is understandable considering he'd missed more than a month of action. He belongs on the waiver wire while getting back up to speed.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • T.J. Warren notches career-high 18 pts Sunday
    T.J. Warren sank 8-of-10 shots to finish Sunday's home loss with a career-high 18 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

    Advice: The Suns' playoff hopes to a massive blow with tonight's loss, but Warren's emergence as a reliable bench scorer provides another silver lining for their season. He did his damage in 29 minutes tonight, without any turnovers, but fantasy owners should still be skeptical -- efficient shooting hasn't amounted to much given his 17.8 minutes per game over the past three weeks.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Solomon Hill plays season-low 14 minutes
    Solomon Hill played a season-low 14 minutes on Sunday, finishing with two points, one rebound, six assists and four personal fouls.

    Advice: Hill's reliable playing time and lack of DNPs haven't led to sustained fantasy value and he's only suitable for deep-league rosters, especially now that Rodney Stuckey (calf) has returned to health. The foul problem helps to explain tonight's limited action but there's no reason to rely on a swingman who has scored double-digit points just five times in March. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee can't heat up offensively
    Courtney Lee had another cool night offensively on Sunday, hitting 4-of-11 FGs to finish with 10 points, one rebound, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Lee's playing time was inflated by Tony Allen's absence with a sore hamstring, but Lee still didn't do enough to justify plucking him off the waiver wire. He came in shooting 32.7 percent from the field in March, and 23.7 percent from downtown, rendering him unusable in all but the deepest fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Henry Walker logs 34 minutes for battered MIA
    Henry Walker made his ninth start of the season on Sunday, posting six points, five rebounds, one assist and one block in 34 minutes during Miami's win vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Walker gives the Heat some much-needed frontcourt depth without benefiting fantasy owners -- his 34.3 percent shooting is reason enough to avoid him in standard leagues. Owners looking for a cheap daily-league option should monitor Miami's injury report, however, as Walker may be forced into a 35-minute role on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:10 pm
  • Michael Beasley has a stinger in his elbow
    Michael Beasley suffered a stinger in his elbow during Sunday's game vs. the Pistons, and he was unable to return after just seven minutes of action.

    Advice: Beasley's elbow flared up and he didn't have any mobility in his arm after the game, but the Heat didn't seem to be overly concerned and head coach Erik Spoelstra is hopeful that he will play vs. the Spurs on Tuesday. Beasley isn't a great option in fantasy leagues and hasn't been getting a lot of minutes even with the Heat dealing with a lot of injuries, so owners in most leagues should probably leave him on the wire.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:52 pm
  • Michael Beasley bruises elbow Sunday vs. DET
    Michael Beasley is questionable to return on Sunday due to a bruised elbow.

    Advice: The Heat are coming apart at the seams, beginning the night extremely short-handed before losing both Beasley and Luol Deng (knee) on Sunday. If Beasley misses any time, James Ennis and Henry Walker will be thrust into bigger roles out of necessity. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Covington scores 19 points w/ five 3s
    Robert Covington led the 76ers' balanced attack on Sunday, scoring 19 points with five 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in a tough loss to the Cavs.

    Advice: He shot 7-of-13 from the field overall and only turned the ball over once in 31 minutes, the first time he's exceeded the 30-minute mark since Feb. 23. This was a stellar bounce-back for Covington, who had just two points on Friday, and he has a high enough ceiling to be active in all but the shallowest leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:15 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). Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:13 pm
  • Jason Richardson rested vs. Cavs on Sunday
    Jason Richardson was rested on Sunday, the first game of a back-to-back set.

    Advice: Philly hosts the Lakers on Monday in a cross-conference battle of cellar-dwellers, and we expect J-Rich to return to the lineup and play his usual 15-20 minutes. His fantasy value is restricted to a handful of 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:09 pm
  • Anthony Bennett (ankle) quiet in return Sun
    Anthony Bennett (leg) returned to action on Sunday with two points, one rebound, two assists and one steal in 12 minutes off Minnesota's bench.

    Advice: The former No. 1 pick hadn't played since a nine-minute stint in late February, so it's no surprise to see the Wolves ease him into the rotation. A fully-healthy Bennett could make some noise down the stretch, but time is quickly running out with only nine games left on the schedule. Better luck next year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:21 pm
  • Alan Anderson scores nine pts w/ two steals
    Alan Anderson scored nine points on 3-of-6 shooting (2-of-2 from the charity stripe), with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists and two steals through 28 minutes of action.

    Advice: Anderson is a guy that can do a little bit of everything, and he's seen his minutes increased over the past two games with Thaddeus Young (knee) unavailable. He's not going to blow you away with his production, but if you're in a deep league and looking for a low-end steals/3-point specialist, Anderson could be your guy. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:05 pm
  • Nick Young (knee) to be reevaluated in a week
    Nick Young (knee) will be reevaluated in one week, but he remains without a timetable to return.

    Advice: This practically rules him out for the rest of the week, and head coach Byron Scott also said that Young would need at least another week of conditioning after that. There is a good chance that Young doesn't play again this season, but Scott refuses to shut him down. At this point in the season, it's safe to leave Young on the wire in just about all leagues.

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer posts all-around line in win
    Corey Brewer scored 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting, with five rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, two blocks and three turnovers through 22 minutes of action.

    Advice: Brewer continues to find ways to show up in the box score despite only playing 25 minutes per game for Houston. He's averaging 12.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 0.9 three-pointers per game through the month of March, making him a quality deep league asset. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 1:44 pm
  • Anthony Bennett (ankle) will return Sunday
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) will make his return Sunday vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: The Timberwolves have been absolutely devastated by injuries, so Bennett will provide the team with some much-needed frontcourt depth. That being said, he's been out since Feb. 20, so he'll more than likely have his minutes held in check today as his conditioning isn't likely where it needs to be. Until he's logging major minutes for Minnesota, he belongs on the waiver wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:57 am
  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Bennett (ankle) is questionable
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) is questionable to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

    Advice: He has been ruled out for games dating back to Feb. 20 and maybe he can get back in the rotation. The Wolves are rolling with just eight guys in their rotation and only seven of them are getting consistent double-digit minutes, so Bennett would likely get some run. He can stay on the wire until he's officially a go, though. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:21 pm
  • Alan Anderson plays 30 minutes on Friday
    Alan Anderson logged 30 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: With Thaddeus Young (knee) looking doubtful for Sunday's game and possibly more, this type of workload seems like a decent bet until Young gets back. Anderson has a week of late-round value under his belt and isn't going to blow you away, but if you need shooting guard stats he could be worth a look. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:43 pm
  • Henry Walker scores 12 points vs. ATL
    Henry Walker scored 12 points with nine rebounds, five assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: Udonis Haslem played 38 minutes on Wednesday and now Walker gets 40 minutes tonight. This is your 2014-15 Miami Heat right now. Walker has buried at least three 3-pointers in four of his last five, averaging 8.4 points, 4.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.8 treys in that span. He's worth a look in standard leagues, especially with Dwyane Wade dealing with a knee issue. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:49 pm
  • Robert Covington puts up a dud vs. Clippers
    Robert Covington didn't make any of his four attempts from the field and made both free throws for two points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one turnover in 24 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

    Advice: Yuck. Covington was on fire on Wednesday with 25 points and on Tuesday with 21 points, but he was on the other end of the spectrum. He was dreadful in his three previous games before that hot stretch, so the inconsistency has been very annoying. He's still worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:04 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.

  • Robert Covington back with the starters Fri.
    Robert Covington will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Covington has been en fuego over the last two, draining 11 three-pointers while offering a little bit of everything. Make sure you have him in your active lineup. It's not clear at this point if Jason Richardson will be rested, or if he's simply coming off the bench, but he's been pretty awful lately so his status shouldn't matter in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:17 pm
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    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. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 3:20 pm
  • Bennett (ankle), Hummel (hand) out again Fri.
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) and Robbie Hummel (hand) will not play Friday vs. Houston.

    Advice: There's no reason to roster either of these guys in any league, leave them on the wire. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:14 pm
  • Corey Brewer (oblique) probable for Friday
    Corey Brewer (oblique strain) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Brewer hasn't missed any time with his oblique strain, so there's no reason to think he won't be able to give it a go on Friday. We'll let you know if that changes. Rotoworld.com

  • Lord Robert Covington scores 25 points vs. DEN
    Robert Covington stayed hot against the Nuggets during a 99-85 win on Wednesday, matching his career high of 25 points with six rebounds, two steals, one block and six 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's getting hot at the right time for his fantasy owners with a 21-point game coming on Tuesday. Covington moved back to the bench, but he was still able to get 17 shots from the field and three from the line. He is a must-start player when he's on track like he is now. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:16 pm
  • Jason Richardson plays 25 minutes
    Jason Richardson returned from rest on Wednesday with eight points, four rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer on 3-of-13 from the field.

    Advice: He's not going to play in back-to-back games and did not play on Tuesday. The 76ers have another back-to-back starting on Sunday, so keep that in mind if he's on your roster in a deep league. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:10 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. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:55 pm
  • Courtney Lee scoreless in start
    Courtney Lee started after missing time with a hand injury, but missed all three of his shots and didn't score.

    Advice: Tony Allen has been hot for the Grizzlies and had seven points, eight rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer, despite hitting just 3-of-11 shots. Forget about Lee unless you see him get hot. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:16 pm
  • Michael Beasley plays 14 minutes in win
    Michael Beasley came off the bench and played just 14 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with six points, two steals and a block.

  • Henry Walker starts, hits four 3-pointers
    Henry Walker started for Dwyane Wade (knee) and hit 4-of-8 3-pointers for 12 points, four boards and two assists in Wednesday's win.

    Advice: James Ennis had six points and six rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench, and Tyler Johnson added 12 points, four rebounds, two steals and a block in 20 minutes. Wade is day-to-day with his injury, and we expect this trio to continue to chip in as long as he's out. Unfortunately, none of them can be trusted in fantasy, even when Wade is out. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:47 pm
  • Courtney Lee will start, Jeff Green off bench
    Courtney Lee (hand) will start against the Cavs on Wednesday with Jeff Green going back to the bench.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise with the Grizzlies saying they like Green as a primary scoring option off the bench. Lee has lost a lot of fantasy value since Green arrived and can be left on the wire in standard formats. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 5:04 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. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:44 pm
  • Jason Richardson starting, Covington benched
    Jason Richardson (rest) will play vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday, shifting Robert Covington to the bench.

    Advice: J-Rich doesn't play in back-to-back sets which is why he didn't play on Tuesday, but he is ready to roll tonight. However, Richardson has struggled mightily for the 76ers, and he is only worth a look in deeper leagues for owners in need of scoring and 3-pointers. Covington's value takes a hit every time he comes off the bench, but he is still worth holing onto in most leagues for his ridiculous ability from beyond the arc. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:43 pm
  • Henry Walker starting, Beasley off bench
    Henry Walker will start against the Celtics on Wednesday with Michael Beasley coming off the bench.

    Advice: The Heat desperately need some scoring punch off the bench, so expect to see a lot of Beasley. He's also likely going to be a backup center fort Miami tonight. Walker is still a low-end option with Beasley offering the higher upside. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:15 pm
  • Michael Beasley will start on Wednesday
    Michael Beasley will enter the starting lineup on Wednesday vs. the Celtics in place of Hassan Whiteside (hand).

    Advice: The Heat are also missing Dwyane Wade (knee) and Chris Andersen (calf) tonight, so Beasley should be very busy on the offensive end. He is averaging 9.0 points, 4.4 boards and 1.3 assists in 24.3 minutes through 12 games in March, but he should see a nice bump in production in a critical matchup with the Celtics. Owners in daily leagues should give him a look. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (hand) expects to play Wednesday
    Courtney Lee (hand) is expected to play against the Cavs on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He's been out since Saturday due to a hand sprain, which has been a lingering issue for him in the past couple weeks. With Lee back, Tony Allen and Jeff Green will lose some playing time. Green may also come off the bench, but he's still worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:06 pm
  • Michael Beasley likely to start on Wednesday
    Michael Beasley will likely enter the starting lineup vs. the Celtics on Wednesday if Hassan Whiteside (hand) can't play.

    Advice: Beasley has averages of 9.0 points, 4.4 boards and 1.3 assists in 24.3 minutes per game during the month of March, so he could see a nice bump in production if he is forced to play big minutes. Chris Andersen (calf) is also questionable which only improves Beasley's outlook, so owners in daily leagues looking for a cheap plug-and-play should give him a look. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (hand) questionable Wednesday
    Courtney Lee (hand) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Lee has missed two consecutive games, but we haven't heard a lot about his progress in the last few days. If Lee can't play tonight, Tony Allen will draw another start and is worth owning if you need steals while Jeff Green will continue to be a factor in the scoring column for the Grizzlies.

  • Robert Covington drops 21 points, five 3PTs
    Robert Covington dropped 21 points in place of Jason Richardson (rest) on Tuesday vs. the Kings, adding three boards, one assist, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Covington has been phenomenal this season when he is given the minutes, but head coach Brett Brown has continued to give precious minutes away to veterans such as Jason Richardson and Luc Mbah a Moute. Covington is averaging just 9.4 points, 3.8 boards, 1.8 assists and 2.2 3-pointers in just over 25 minutes per game over his last five, so unless you need 3-pointers, it's tough to call him a must-own player. Expect Covington's value to take a hit when Richardson returns to the starting lineup on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:56 pm
  • Michael Beasley starts w/ Whiteside ailing
    With Hassan Whiteside (hand) being stitched up by team trainers, Michael Beasley slid into Miami's starting lineup to begin the second half on Tuesday.

    Advice: Beasley finished with four points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes, but he also lost a critical jumpball which led to Milwaukee's game-winning 3-pointer. He's solidified himself as a reliable part of Miami's rotation but he's yet to cause a ripple in fantasy leagues. Whiteside's status for Wednesday's game is in real doubt, but Beasley is best suited to use in very deep leagues or daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

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

  • Corey Brewer (oblique) probable Wednesday
    Corey Brewer (oblique strain) is probable to play Wednesday vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: This is the first we're hearing of an oblique injury for Brewer, but with the Rockets listing him as probable, we're not expecting him to miss any time. Brewer has been productive through the month of March, putting in averages of 13.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 0.9 three-pointers per game on 48.1 percent shooting from the field. He's a good guy to own in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Robert Covington will replace Jason Richardson (rest) in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Kings.

    Tuesday, 11:30 am
  • Jason Richardson (rest) out Tuesday vs. SAC
    Jason Richardson (rest) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. Sacramento, and Robert Covington will draw the start in his place.

    Advice: It's the first half of a back-to-back set, so Richardson will sit tonight so that he can play Wednesday vs. the Nuggets. Richardson's production has been sporadic, scoring five, six, 14, and two points in his previous four outings. His struggles with consistency, partnered with the fact he will be sitting out games in back-to-back sets makes him a very tough guy to own in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (hand) out again on Monday
    Courtney Lee (hand) will not play against the Knicks on Monday.

    Advice: The Grizzlies should be OK without him. On Saturday, Jeff Green and Tony Allen played outstanding ball with Green putting up a 23-point gem and Allen double-doubling with six steals. They're both worth looks in all leagues tonight. Lee can be cut in most leagues until he's deemed healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Bennett's injury now to his leg
    Anthony Bennett (leg) will not play on Monday against the Jazz, and he remains out indefinitely.

    Advice: This is just a reminder, and Bennett doesn't appear close to any kind of return. He's been out since February 20. Rotoworld.com

  • 76ers burying Robert Covington in bench role
    Robert Covington played 25 minutes off the bench vs. the Lakers, finishing with 11 points (3-of-9 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), two 3-pointers, three rebounds and one block.

    Advice: The Sixers were within one point after the third quarter, yet only one player for either team (Nerlens Noel) reached the 30-minute threshold. That's what happens when two cellar-dwelling teams face off with nothing but lottery balls at stake, and it's hard to envision Covington regaining the mojo he had midseason. Owners in need of instant production can't be faulted for having cut him loose. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Richardson w/ five points in 21 minutes
    Jason Richardson finished Sunday's road defeat with five points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, three assists and zero defensive stats in 21 minutes.

    Advice: The rebuilding Sixers haven't shied away from starting the 34-year-old Richardson, who hasn't been a fantasy asset despite averaging 22 minutes over his past five games. "It depends on the situation, what team wants me," J-Rich said, when asked about continuing his NBA career next season. "How my knee holds up. God willing, maybe two or three more years." If nothing else, Richardson has served the Sixers well as a veteran role model for their neophyte roster. Rotoworld.com

  • Henry Walker shoots 0-of-6 in blowout loss
    Heat F Henry Walker missed all six of his shot attempts vs. the Thunder, finishing scoreless with four rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: More than three-quarters of Walker's shots come from beyond the arc, which makes him especially prone to boom-or-bust games offensively. He's foul-prone and has scored 10+ points just once in the month of March, so there's no reason to own him despite his steady minutes in Erik Spoelstra's second unit. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Richardson not ready to retire yet
    Jason Richardson is hoping to spend the next three weeks trying to convince other NBA teams that he still has gas left in the tank in the hopes of landing another contract.

    Advice: "It depends on the situation, what team wants me. How my knee holds up. God willing, maybe two or three more years," Richardson said. "I have to keep telling myself [I’ll be better]. I’m my toughest critic. I can’t sleep at night when we don’t win and I play bad. I have to keep telling myself I’ve only played 10 games in two years. Hey, your legs might not be there some nights, so do something else to help this team out." The 76ers have opted to start the veteran SG since he returned from injury and even though he can't play in back-to-back sets, Richardson has averaged 9.4 points per game in 12 appearances. However, at this point in his career, Richardson is only an asset in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen double-doubles with six steals
    Tony Allen double-doubled with 10 points, 11 rebounds, one assist, six steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: He started tonight with Courtney Lee out of the lineup due to a nagging thumb injury. The more time Lee misses, the bigger the lines will be for Allen. If you need some steals, he's almost a must-own player. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Miles scores 14 points vs. Nets
    C.J. Miles made 5-of-11 from the field for 14 points with six boards and four 3-pointers during a 123-111 loss to the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He scored his first 12 points on 150.0 effective field goal percentage, but fizzled out making just 1-of-7 the rest of the way. Miles could be in line for more minutes, but Rodney Stuckey's calf injury sounds minor. Paul George (leg) could also return soon and take minutes from him. If he's on the wire, there's no need to be too aggressive in grabbing him. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (hand) will not play Saturday
    Courtney Lee (hand) will not play against the Blazers on Saturday due to a right hand sprain.

    Advice: That means the Grizzlies will have their third different combo on the wings with Tony Allen and Jeff Green likely to start next to each other. Lee isn't too involved in the offense and only has a 15.1 usage rate, so there won't be too many extra shots to go around. That said, Green and Allen are worth starting in standard leagues tonight.

  • Anthony Bennett (ankle) now out
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) will not play on Sunday against the Hornets.

    Advice: There was some hope he could play, but he'll miss another game. Bennett could get minutes due to how thin the Wolves are, but he can remain on the wire in fantasy leagues until we get a confirmation he'll be ready to go for game action. Plus, he hasn't practiced yet. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Bennett has chance to play Sunday
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) is questionable to play on Sunday against the Hornets.

    Advice: He has been out for over one month with his leg injury and there's been little talk of him making progress. The Wolves need big men as bad as any team right now, so Bennett would get minutes if he's healthy. Adreian Payne and Chase Budinger would lose some playing time. Leave Bennett on the wire until we get a more encouraging update. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 12:11 pm
  • Tony Allen plays 32 minutes in start
    Tony Allen started on Friday against the Mavs with 13 points, seven rebounds, one assist and two steals on 5-of-8 from the field and 3-of-8 from the line in 32 minutes.

    Advice: This is right up his alley for playing time and usage rate, so Allen will continue to be more of a steals guy with some boards and points mixed in. He's worth a look depending on your needs. Keep an eye on his status for the back-to-back set on Saturday, but there's little doubt the Grindfather will sit in the Grindhouse. Rotoworld.com

  • Beasley flirts with triple-double vs. Nuggets
    Michael Beasley flirted with a low-grade triple-double on Friday against the Nuggets, scoring nine points on 4-of-13 shooting (including a three) with eight rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block in 34 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Beasley hasn't been a great standard league asset because of poor percentages and just 1.8 combined steals, threes and blocks over his last seven games. There is a chance he mops up for the Heat down the stretch of the season, but with the Heat rising in the standings and not falling -- that chance lessens by the game. Rotoworld.com

  • Covington scores eight points with two threes
    Robert Covington scored eight points off the bench on Friday, hitting 3-of-7 shots (including two threes) with five rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Covington is sliding at the wrong time for owners and it's really anybody's guess if he's going to get back on track. There's not a huge body of work for owners to look back at for comfort, and Brett Brown is known to make changes on the fly. We haven't heard anything about his elbow injury, and it's best if owners view him more as a stash than somebody to rely on. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen will start for Jeff Green
    Tony Allen will start for Jeff Green on Friday against the Mavericks.

    Advice: It's not really a big move because Allen comes in for Green fairly early in the first quarter anyway. There's really no need to adjust minutes projections or output from this move. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley (back) will not play on Friday
    Jared Dudley (back spasms) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Brooklyn, and he is currently without an official timetable to return.

    Advice: With Dudley out, Ersan Ilyasova will likely continue to see his minutes in the 30s, with Giannis Antetokounmpo getting all the run he can handle. Dudley belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Young (knee) unlikely to make road trip
    Lakers' head coach Byron Scott said he's doubtful Nick Young (knee) will accompany the team on their upcoming five-game road trip.

    Advice: "I don’t see him going on this trip," Scott said. "He can do his therapy here." It sounds like Young will remain sidelined for at least the next six games, meaning he won't be able to return to action until April 1 at the earliest. Jordan Clarkson, Jeremy Lin, and Wayne Ellington will continue to log extended minutes in Young's absence, and at this point in the fantasy season, Swaggy P belongs on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
