  • Matthews frustrated by 4th quarter benching
    After spending the past two games on the bench during crunch time, Wesley Matthews voiced his frustration following Tuesday's overtime loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: "Yeah, I was frustrated. I've never been taken out of a game in crunch time. I haven't," said Matthews. "That's new to me. I've always been especially a crunch-time player, so I don't know." The Mavs pulled out a win over the Grizzlies with Wesley on the bench during crunch time on Saturday, but fell to the Jazz during overtime on Tuesday, with Raymond Felton getting the call over Matthews. That's not a trend that's likely to continue, so owners have little to be concerned about here. Rotoworld.com 38 minutes ago
  • Dwyane Wade hopes for quick free agency
    Dwyane Wade said that he wants his free agency to be quick and he expects to finish his career in Miami.

    Advice: "I want to be able to sign my deal and move on and not have to deal with any rumors, any free agency, any this, any that," said Wade. "This is where I want to end my career. So we'll figure it out." Wade has been a cornerstone of the Miami franchise since coming into the league, and it doesn't sound like he's very interested in going elsewhere. He's having a healthy season, but is only putting up late-round value with averages of 18.6 points, 4.2 assists and 1.2 steals per game. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:13 am
  • Report: ATL has discussed Oladipo for Teague?
    The Hawks and Magic have reportedly discussed a potential deal involving Victor Oladipo and Jeff Teague.

    Advice: Out of the players being mentioned in potential trades out of Atlanta, Teague's name has come up the most, so he seems the most likely guy to be dealt at the deadline if the Hawks decide to make a move. Orlando wouldn't be the worst landing spot for Teague, but it would be a significant blow to Elfrid Payton's value. Oladipo wouldn't be the main man in Atlanta, so his value could take a slight hit with the Hawks. Dennis Schroder needs to be stashed in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:04 am
  • Marcus Thornton scores 15 off the bench
    Marcus Thornton scored 15 points with three assists, one board, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: Thornton probably deserves more reps in Houston, but coach J.B. Bickerstaff likes Corey Brewer too much. His role has been too sporadic and he's basically a hit-or-miss option every night, so he's hard to rely on in most leagues. He scored a combined nine points in his previous two outings on 3-of-15 shooting. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:20 pm
  • Trevor Ariza scores 19 w/ four treys
    Trevor Ariza scored 19 points with seven rebounds, two steals and four 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: He was coming off a five-point dud vs. the Blazers, so he redeemed himself tonight. Luckily for Ariza, he will get another shot to get revenge against Portland on Wednesday in a game that will have plenty of playoff-race implications. Ariza should be treated as a top-40 player moving forward as long as he continues to start as the stretch four. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:17 pm
  • Corey Brewer scores nine points in loss
    Corey Brewer scored nine points on 3-of-9 shooting with five boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: His coach loves him and said that he's "disruptive" on the defensive end, but he really hasn't looked that good other than a 24-point outburst vs. the lowly Suns on Thursday. Brewer will be on the fantasy radar for any owner in need of steals or 3-pointers as long as he continues to start, but he's better suited for deeper leagues until further notice. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:13 pm
  • James Harden drops 37 points in loss
    James Harden (finger) dropped 37 points in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors, adding five boards and five assists in 40 minutes.

    Advice: His finger wasn't an issue tonight and he was very solid on the defensive end with three steals and one block, but his biggest accomplishment was holding Klay Thompson to 13 points on 5-of-19 shooting. Harden hit six 3-pointers in the loss, but he will need to be on top of his game again on Wednesday in a crucial matchup with the Blazers. Both the Rockets and the Blazers have 27 losses on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:01 pm
  • Klay Thompson misses all seven 3-pointers
    Klay Thompson missed all seven of his 3-point attempts on Tuesday vs. the Rockets, finishing with 13 points, three assists and two boards in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Needless to say, this was one of his worst performances on the offensive end this season, but James Harden deserves some credit for his defense. Even if you include tonight's dud, Thompson still has averages of 24.2 points and 3.2 3-pointers over his last five games, so he's going to be fine. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:55 pm
  • Andre Iguodala scores 12 points off bench
    Andre Iguodala scored 12 points off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Rockets with six assists, six boards and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: This was his first game with double-digit points since Jan. 22, so this performance doesn't move the needle much for Iguodala. Harrison Barnes is playing well again and the Warriors are healthy, so his production is going to be hard to rely on in standard leagues. He's also a candidate to get a couple of maintenance days down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:52 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) likely out for the season
    Tyreke Evans plans to undergo surgery on his right knee and will likely miss the rest of the 2015-16 season.

    Advice: This is a tough blow for Evans and the Pelicans, but it sounds like the wise decision because there is no reason for him to play at less than 100 percent in what has become a lost season for New Orleans. This could have a significant impact on the Pelicans at the trade deadline as they may be more willing to become sellers. If Evans goes through with the surgery, Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole look like the primary beneficiaries, while Bryce Dejean-Jones could be signed for the remainder of the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:42 pm
  • Warriors make history, improve to 47-4
    Stephen Curry helped the Warriors improve to 47-4 on the season in Tuesday's win over the Rockets, scoring 35 points with nine assists.

    Advice: With the win, the Warriors now have the best start in NBA history through 51 games and they also earned their 42nd-straight regular-season win at home. Curry has been the best player in the NBA and in fantasy basketball this season and this team is determined to beat the Chicago Bulls' all-time record of 72 wins in a season which was set in 1996. Curry added five boards, one steal and seven 3-pointers in 38 minutes and gets a date with the Suns on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Rodney Hood drops 29 in OT loss
    Rodney Hood hit 12-of-26 shots and two 3-pointers for 29 points, five rebounds and five assists in 43 minutes of Tuesday's overtime win against Dallas.

    Advice: He hit an incredible game-tying 3-pointer that sent the game to overtime (see the link below) and played very well. He's having a fun season and even the eventual return of Alec Burks probably won't slow him down. Hood is averaging 20.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.2 3-pointers over his last five games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful Wednesday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: To be clear, he isn't going to play with the All-Star break right around the corner. McLemore hasn't played well this season and is not worth owning in most leagues. Marco Belinelli will continue to benefit in his absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:38 pm
  • Gordon Hayward hits game-winner in OT
    Gordon Hayward hit an 18-footer with Zaza Pachulia right in his face at the buzzer on Tuesday, giving the Jazz a 121-119 overtime win against the Mavericks.

    Advice: Hayward's shot wasn't falling at times tonight (8-of-20), but he still finished with 20 points, five rebounds, four assists and a steal. He was 0-for-6 from downtown, but is still having a great season and it doesn't look like the return of Derrick Favors is going to hurt him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Ray Felton scores 17 with nice line off bench
    Raymond Felton hit 5-of-9 shots, a 3-pointer and 6-of-6 free throws for 17 points, seven rebounds, five assists and a steal in Tuesday's overtime loss.

    Advice: He hit a big shot late in regulation to help force overtime and has scored in double figures in four of his last five games. If you need guard help, there's a decent chance he's available in your league. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Wes Matthews breaks out of slump with 16
    Wesley Matthews, who hadn't scored more than nine points in three straight games, hit 5-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, two rebounds and three assists in Tuesday's loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: The minutes are there for Matthews, but he's shooting just 40 percent from the floor over his last five games. Hopefully tonight was a sign that he's going to get hot soon, but we'll have to wait until Feb. 19 to find out if it's going to happen. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Deron Williams scores 23 in loss to Jazz
    Deron Williams hit 5-of-12 shots, two 3-pointers and 11-of-13 free throws for 23 points, two rebounds, five assists and a steal in 42 minutes of Tuesday's overtime loss to the Jazz, his former team.

    Advice: The Jazz play good defense and Williams was probably motivated against his former team, even though years have passed. He struggled with eight points on 3-of-9 shooting in his return from a hip injury on Friday, but has played very well in his last two games. Hopefully he uses the All-Star break to get fully healthy and keeps it going after the break. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Patty Mills plays just 16 minutes in win
    Patty Mills played 16 minutes and hit 2-of-6 shots and two 3-pointers for eight points, three rebounds, one assist and a steal on Tuesday.

    Advice: Mills was playing very well coming into this one and offers some intrigue due to Manu Ginobili's surgery, but as long as he's coming off the bench for Gregg Popovich, new owners have to realize that nights like this one could happen more often than they'd like. He's still worth a deep-league grab with Manu out, but he's not an automatic starter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Danny Green scores 15, finally getting hot
    Danny Green played 31 minutes and hit 6-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals, a block and two 3-pointers in a win over the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: This is the type of line his owners were expecting when they drafted Green in October, but it took him until late January to finally start being productive. He's averaging 11.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.6 3-pointers over his last five games, shooting 47 percent in 30 minutes a game. If he was dropped in your league by a disgruntled owner, hopefully you were able to cash in. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Dwyane Wade hits 9-of-12, tweaks ankle, back
    Dwyane Wade played 31 minutes and hit 9-of-12 shots for 20 points, five assists and a steal on Tuesday.

    Advice: He dinged his foot/ankle and was also seen holding his back tonight, but played through it all. His shooting was spectacular, but the fact he didn't have a single rebound in a little concerning. Wade's managed to stay pretty healthy this season and is averaging 18.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.2 steals on 44 percent shooting over his last five. The Heat are done until after the All-Star break, so hopefully Wade gets plenty of rest between now and Feb. 19, when they play the Hawks in Atlanta. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:40 pm
  • Garrett Temple plays 32 minutes off bench
    Garrett Temple played 32 minutes off the Wizards' bench on Tuesday, but didn't do much with them, finishing with five points, one rebound, one assist and a 3-pointer.

    Advice: He's playing 31 minutes a game over his last five, but averaging just 6.4 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.6 3-pointers. The return of Bradley Beal to the starting lineup doesn't help him, as Temple is now going to come off the bench, while the absence of Gary Neal (leg injury) should give him a small boost. But as long as Temple's not starting, he loses what little appeal he had. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:30 pm
  • Ramon Sessions plays just 12 minutes in win
    Ramon Sessions played just 12 minutes and had seven points, two rebounds and one assist on Tuesday.

    Advice: Sessions usually puts up decent numbers when he gets 20-25 minutes a game, but he's played 15 or fewer minutes in three of his last five games, and Garrett Temple looks like a better bet off the Wizards' bench. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:21 pm
  • John Wall puts up massive line in win over NY
    John Wall had the early line of the night with 28 points, five rebounds, 17 assists, a steal and three 3-pointers on 10-of-24 shooting in 43 minutes of Tuesday's thrilling win over the Knicks.

    Advice: The 17 dimes aren't even a season high, as he had 19 of them back on Dec. 21, but he is rolling right now, double-doubling in four straight games and averaging 25.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 11.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.2 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting in February. And in case that wasn't enough, he also committed just one turnover tonight in his 43 minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:06 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) plays 18 minutes
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) returned from an 11-game absence and started at point guard on Tuesday vs. the Celtics, but he failed to score in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He struggled with foul trouble and missed both of his shots, but he did have six assists and a rebound. "We might not have a true point guard but O.J. thrived in this situation last time," Coach Jason Kidd said regarding his decision to start Mayo. "We'll see how it goes this time." Mayo might stick with the first unit even though he was pretty rusty, but Michael Carter-Williams closed out Tuesday's game and is still the PG to own in Milwaukee. Mayo is only on the radar in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:41 pm
  • O.J. Mayo starting, Carter-Williams benched
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will start Tuesday vs. the Celtics, sending Michael Carter-Williams to the bench.

    Advice: The Bucks will roll out a starting five of Mayo, Kris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Miles Plumlee for Tuesday's game with MCW and Greg Monroe coming off the bench. It'll be interesting to see how many minutes Jason Kidd gives Mayo given that O.J. has spent the past 11 games on the sidelines, but Carter-Williams' playing time looks ready to take a hit with both Mayo and Jerryd Bayless active. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:45 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play on Tuesday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Mayo will likely be eased back into the rotation following an 11 game absence, so there's no reason to pick him up in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:31 pm
  • James Harden (finger) will play vs. Warriors
    James Harden (finger) will play Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Harden is not on the Rockets' injury report, and was a full participant during shootaround, so there's no reason to believe he'll miss Tuesday's matchup against the defending champs. Go ahead and get him active. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:01 pm
  • Report: NO could move Tyreke Evans, Gordon?
    The Pelicans are reportedly open to moving either Tyreke Evans (knee) or Eric Gordon (finger).

    Advice: While Evans' talent is undeniable, his surgically repaired right knee has become a major issue, so the Pelicans may be willing to move on from the oft-injured guard. The same can be said for Gordon, as he has never made it through a full 82-game season, so it'll be interesting to see if New Orleans makes a move at the deadline. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:44 pm
  • Report: IND interested in Teague, Hill swap?
    The Pacers have reportedly reached out to the Hawks regarding a potential Jeff Teague, George Hill trade.

    Advice: Teague's value could take a hit in Indiana as he'd be fighting for touches with Paul George and Monta Ellis on offense, so this wouldn't be an ideal landing spot for Jeff. The trade rumors have been swirling around Atlanta's Big Three, and it seems likely that at least one of the core players for the Hawks is dealt at the deadline. The Magic, Jazz and Knicks have also expressed interest in Teague, so Dennis Schroder needs to be stashed in most leagues at this point. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:37 pm
  • Gerald Henderson scores 16 points
    Gerald Henderson scored 16 points with three rebounds, one assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: He played some important minutes as both teams went small. The Blazers are likely going to try and unload Henderson and his expiring contract, especially since guys like Allen Crabbe have stepped. He's only worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:38 pm
  • Mike Conley scores 27 points in loss
    Mike Conley scored a season-high 27 points during a 112-106 overtime loss to the Blazers on Monday, adding three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: His defense wasn't great, but at least he was effective on the offensive end. Since Conley returned from an Achilles issue 10 games ago, he averaged 13.7 points, 3.5 boards, 7.2 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.1 treys. He's been a fifth-round player in that span despite not even playing his best. Expect him to improve and the All-Star break should help him. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:34 pm
  • Jeff Teague scores 21 points vs. Magic
    Jeff Teague scored 21 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Magic on Monday.

    Advice: It's probably safe to say Teague is back. In his last five, the 2014-15 All-Star averaged 20.6 points, 3.4 assists, 5.0 blocks, 1.4 steals and 2.6 treys on 53.5 percent from the field. Teague has third-round value in that span and looks to be out of his season-long slump. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:06 pm
  • Jrue Holiday scores 27 points in win
    Jrue Holiday scored 27 points vs. the Wolves on Monday with nine assists, six boards, three steals and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He took care of his business in just 28 minutes and finished 11-of-23 from the field with one turnover. Holiday is one of the safest players to own in New Orleans going forward because Tyreke Evans (knee) is a shut-down candidate and Anthony Davis is very prone to injuries, so his owners should be feeling confident. The Pelicans will play the Jazz on Wednesday and the Thunder on Thursday before the All-Star break begins. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:02 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) ruled out Monday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) will not play on Monday vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful, so he probably won't play against the 76ers on Wednesday either. With McLemore on the shelf, Marco Belinelli will draw another start and is worth a look if you need 3-pointers. Belinelli has scored in double digits in each of his last four games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:06 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) doubtful for Mon. night
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. Cleveland.

    Advice: McLemore has really fallen out of favor, and he's not going to play on Monday. Marco Belinelli and Darren Collison will get more run against LeBron James and Co. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:54 am
  • O.J. Mayo expected to return on Tuesday night
    O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) is expected to make his return on Tuesday vs. Boston.

    Advice: This confirms an earlier report, and all signs point to the veteran guard finally getting back on the floor. Following an 11-game absence, expect Mayo to be eased back into action. With Mayo and Jerryd Bayless once again in the mix, those with Michael Carter-Williams on the roster should be paying very close attention to the minutes distribution in Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:27 am
  • Dwyane Wade scores 17 points in loss to LAC
    Dwyane Wade struggled with his shot on Sunday, going 7-of-20 from the field on his way to 17 points, three boards, three assists, one steal and four turnovers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Wade has been surprisingly healthy this season, but he's still only been producing late-round value on the year with averages of 18.7 points, 4.1 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.0 steal and 2.7 turnovers per game on 45.4 percent shooting. He is what he is. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:05 pm
  • Jeff Teague scores 24 points with five dimes
    Jeff Teague hit 10-of-17 shots for 24 points on Sunday, to go with five assists, three 3-pointers, one rebound, one steal and an unfortunate five turnovers through 35 minutes of action.

    Advice: Teague did briefly exit the game after getting hit in the left side, but he played through it and it didn't look like an injury that would force him to miss any time. Jeff has been playing much better over the past two weeks, putting in averages of 17.3 points, 5.4 assists, 1.6 three-pointers, 1.9 steals and 3.0 turnovers per game on 53.8 percent shooting, which has been good enough for second-round value in standard leagues. Dennis Schroder no longer seems to be a threat to Teague's minutes. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:28 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) will not play Sunday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) will not play on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful and never really had a shot at seeing the court today. Marco Belinelli will benefit the most, while James Anderson and Darren Collison will see a few more minutes as well. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:58 am
  • James Harden (finger) says he is fine
    James Harden (finger) believes that he should be all right.

    Advice: "My middle finger bent back," Harden said. "It's swollen a little bit, but it should be all right." Harden didn't play down the stretch in Sunday's game vs. the Blazers, but it was likely due to the lopsided score and he said that it would've have been "pointless" for him to keep playing. Harden should be considered day-to-day, but it would be surprising if he didn't play vs. the Warriors on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:21 am
  • Damian Lillard praises Gerald Henderson
    Damian Lillard attributes Gerald Henderson's recent success to him being healthy.

    Advice: "I think he's just healthy," Lillard said. "He was coming off hip surgery, so it took some time for him to get in shape. He missed training camp. He had to get in shape, he had to get his rhythm back, he had to get his feel back, get comfortable with our sets, comfortable being out there with the guys. I think the last couple of weeks, you're starting to see him get comfortable. He's finally back." Henderson is averaging 13.3 points and 6.0 rebounds in February, but his expiring contract could draw some interest at the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:13 am
  • Rodney Hood scores 25 w/ three triples
    Rodney Hood had his second dominant performance in a row, scoring 25 points vs. the Suns with three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He shot 9-of-19 from the field and added four boards, one assist and one steal in 35 minutes. He has now scored 22 or more points in six out of his last nine performances and has now gone 20 straight games with at least one 3-pointer. He's a beast and could have top-50 value the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:59 pm
  • Gordon Hayward scores 22 points in win
    Gordon Hayward scored 22 points in a win over the Suns on Saturday with six boards, three assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

    Advice: He has been logging heavy playing time over his last four games, averaging 39.5 minutes in that span. The Jazz were missing Trey Burke (illness) tonight and Alec Burks (ankle) is expected to return after the All-Star break, so help is on the way for the Jazz. With Utah right in the middle of the playoff hunt, Hayward's mid-round value is safe for the remainder of the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:48 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 26, Warriors beat OKC
    Stephen Curry scored a team-high 26 points during a 116-108 win over the Thunder on Saturday, adding six rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: OKC held Steph in check for just his second game with just one 3-pointer this season. The Warriors were still able to get a win after blowing an 18-point lead and are currently on pace for the best record ever at 46-4. As for Curry, that one trey makes it 121 consecutive games with one triple while he also became No. 3 on the franchise's all-time steals list. He is making last year's MVP run seem ordinary. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:46 pm
  • Danny Green scores 11 points in win
    Danny Green scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with five boards, two assists, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes in a win over the Lakers on Saturday.

    Advice: His production has been sporadic all season, but nights like these are why it's so difficult for us to let him go. Green is now averaging 9.6 points, 5.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.6 steals and 2.4 3-pointers over his last five games which is only good for top-100 value, but he's still a hold in standard leagues as long as you have some patience. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:34 pm
  • Deron Williams scores 22 w/ 11 dimes
    Deron Williams had 22 points to go with 11 assists, two boards, one steal and two 3-pointers in Saturday's overtime win over the Grizzlies.

    Advice: He was awful on Friday vs. the Spurs with just eight points on 3-of-9 shooting in 27 minutes, but he looked rejuvenated vs. the Grizzlies and this was one of his best performances of the season. He shot 8-of-20 from the field and didn't turn the ball over once, so hopefully he carries this momentum into Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:15 pm
  • Raymond Felton scores 16 points off bench
    Raymond Felton scored 16 points off the bench on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies with seven boards, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Wesley Matthews was benched down the stretch and finished with just eight points, but coach Rick Carlisle was simply riding the hot hand in Felton. He scored just six points in his previous outing in 21 minutes, so he would have to do this again to be on the radar in standard leagues. To be clear, Matthews' spot in the lineup is not in jeopardy. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:14 pm
  • Trevor Ariza finally cools off
    Trevor Ariza scored five points with five rebounds, four steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: At least the steals were there in Ariza's worst game since the lineup change. Before this dud, he was putting up first-round value as the starting power forward. Keep him active and it's fair to expect him to be a top-40 player going forward. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:04 pm
  • James Harden scores 33, hurts right hand
    James Harden suffered an apparent minor right hand injury on Saturday, finishing with 33 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block, four 3-pointers and 10 turnovers.

    Advice: He had ice on his hand for most of the fourth quarter because the Rockets were blown out tonight. Harden did play through his hand issue for a few minutes before going to the bench, so chances are this is minor. He also took the ice pack off his hand for the final two minutes. For now, there shouldn't be much concern, but you never know when it comes to a hand injury. We'll pass along any info if he needs an X-ray. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:36 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) out until All-Star break
    Tyreke Evans (knee) has been shut down until the All-Star break.

    Advice: "Hopefully he’ll be ready to go right after the All-Star break and we’ll be able to play him for the rest of the stretch [of the schedule]," coach Alvin Gentry said. His owners should stash him in an IR spot, but it's still possible that he could be shut down during the final weeks of the season if the Pelicans are not in the playoff hunt. In the meantime, Bryce Dejean-Jones will continue to start and is worth a look in deeper leagues. Jrue Holiday will benefit as well. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:15 pm
  • Ben McLemore doubtful for Sunday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful to play against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: He only played 12 minutes in his return from a wrist injury on Friday, so maybe his wrist injury wasn't healed all the way. Assuming Darren Collison's minor knee issue is fine, he should benefit the most along with Marco Belinelli in the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:49 pm
  • Mike Conley will consider all options in FA
    Mike Conley will consider all options when he becomes a free agent this summer.

    Advice: "I think everything will be on the table when the time comes," Conley said. "I haven’t committed to anything." The Grizzlies might be a little nervous following this quote, as Conley will have the ability to walk at the end of the season as an unrestricted free agent. Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace has already stated that Conley will be the team's "No. 1 priority" this summer, but there will certainly be a lot of competition for his signature. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:27 am
  • Rodney Hood is mentally stronger this season
    Rodney Hood said that he has been getting better mentally which helped him bounce back on Friday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: "I think it helped just having a short-term memory," Hood said. "I've been getting better mentally, and I remember early in the season letting a situation like this go over from game to game. I'm maturing, so I just wanted to be aggressive, as long as I hit shots or not." Hood was held to eight points on Wednesday vs. the Jazz, but he put that performance behind him and dropped 23 points with three treys on Saturday. Hood is a stud and should be considered a must-start player. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:43 am
  • Bickerstaff praises Corey Brewer
    Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that Corey Brewer is "disruptive" on the defensive end.

    Advice: "He's disruptive," Bickerstaff said. "When he's able to get steals, that's when his offense starts. His offense starts on the defensive end of the court. It's a steal for us. It's a defensive rebound for us and then it's a quick outlet. When we're getting stops, that's when [Brewer] is at his best." Brewer scored 24 points against the Suns on Thursday and is still starting at small forward, but he was struggling prior to that game. Unless he does this again, he's better suited for deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:57 am
  • Wesley Matthews scores four points in 23 mins
    Wesley Matthews couldn't get anything going during Friday's blowout loss to the Spurs, tallying just four points on 2-of-5 shooting with one rebound, two assists, one block and one turnover in 23 minutes.

    Advice: The Mavs were blown out badly in this one, and the game was essentially over after the first-quarter. Wesley was noticeably upset after the game saying it was the most "embarrassing game" he's ever been a part of "at any level." Matthews has been struggling over the past month, knocking down just 34.5 percent of his shots, and it might not get any better any time soon with Dallas set to play Memphis on Saturday and Utah on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:23 pm
  • Deron Williams hits 3-of-9 shots in 27 mins
    Deron Williams' struggles continued on Friday as he only connected on 3-of-9 shots on his way to eight points, three rebounds, three assists and one turnover in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Williams has been struggling mightily over the past month, owning meager averages of 11.7 points, 4.6 assists, 1.0 three-pointer and 2.3 turnovers per game on 38.5 percent shooting. Those numbers have him ranking well outside the top 150 in standard leagues, although he still offers too much upside to outright drop. Perhaps he can get things back on track after the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:14 pm
  • Patty Mills scores 16 points with two treys
    Patty Mills scored 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting Friday to go with two 3-pointers and four rebounds in 15 minutes of floor time.

    Advice: Mills could have some more minutes falling his way with Manu Ginobili (testicular surgery) set to spend at least the next month on the sidelines, but he's not much more than a 3-point specialist in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:05 pm
  • Rodney Hood scores 23 points vs. Bucks
    Rodney Hood scored a game-high 23 points during a win over the Bucks on Friday with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

    Advice: That's a bounce-back from his rare dud on Wednesday. Hood has emerged as one of the best sophomores in the NBA and the Jazz continue to build the offense around him. Expect him to keep flirting with top-50 value even when Alec Burks (leg) comes back. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:29 pm
  • Danny Green scores eight points w/ two treys
    Danny Green scored eight points on 3-of-8 shooting Friday, to go with two 3-pointers, four boards, one assist and one turnover in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Mr. Green has become elite at following up productive outing with meaningless stat lines, although he has managed to produce fifth-round value in 9-cat leagues over the past two weeks with averages of 9.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.7 three-pointers on 45.7 percent shooting. He can be truly infuriating to own, but with the upward trend, he's a hold in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:22 pm
  • McLemore has another bad game
    Ben McLemore scored five points with two assists and one steal in 12 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He is losing playing time and it's not because of his wrist injury. Unless the Kings really start unloading players, McLemore can be ignored in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:50 pm
  • John Wall triple-doubles in win over 76ers
    John Wall triple-doubled against the 76ers during a 106-94 win on Friday, scoring 18 points with 13 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: The Wizards offense is starting to click again and going small is probably the reason why. Wall had a really tough cold spell last month and it's probably not a coincidence that's when the team went with Nene (calf) at power forward. Expect to see Wall put up some big lines going forward. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:44 pm
  • Jeff Teague scored 16 points vs. Pacers
    Jeff Teague made 5-of-9 from the field for 16 points with five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

    Advice: It's not a great game, but it's not a step back. Teague has been in a solid groove in his last five, averaging 18.6 points, 2.8 boards, 5.2 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.8 treys on 52.2 percent form the field. Believe it or not, Teague has posted second-round value in the last seven games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:35 pm
  • Kidd expects Mayo (hamstring) to play Tuesday
    Jason Kidd said that he expects O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) to play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Mayo was able to get through a full practice on Thursday unscathed, so it sounds like he'll be ready to get back on the court Tuesday night following an 11 game absence. Mayo will likely be eased back into the rotation in Milwaukee, and with averages of just 9.1 points, 1.2 three-pointers and 1.2 steals on 37.4 percent shooting on the year, he can safely remain on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:51 pm
  • Deron Williams (hip bruise) will play Friday
    Deron Williams (right hip contusion) will play vs. the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: D-Will hurt himself on Monday but only missed one game, a good sign for fantasy owners given his lengthy injury history. With Devin Harris (toe) doubtful to return prior to the All-Star break, there should still be extra minutes for backup guards J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:57 pm
  • Garrett Temple shifts to bench role Friday
    Garrett Temple will shift to the Wizards' bench on Friday, with Bradley Beal taking his place in the starting lineup.

    Advice: Washington has lost five of their past six games so coach Randy Wittman decided to shake things up, and Temple should still claim a substantial role off the bench. This does his fantasy value no favors, however, and anyone on the fence can take this as their cue to cut him loose. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:21 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) ruled out for Saturday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday against the Cavs.

    Advice: The Pelicans are talking about a shutdown, but it's not in their plans right now. There's a decent chance we don't see Evans back out there this week. Bryce Dejean-Jones was very good on Thursday and should get more starts. Norris Cole also benefits and hopeful he can stay out of foul trouble. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:23 pm
  • Deron Williams (hip) listed as questionable
    Deron Williams (right hip contusion) has been listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Coach Rick Carlisle is "hopeful" to have him back in the lineup and Williams said on Thursday that he would give it a go, but we should have a concrete answer after the Mavs' shootaround. For now, it sounds safe to pencil him back into lineups. J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will lose some value if D-Will plays. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:05 am
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) is probable
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is probable to play the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday, but coach George Karl decided to bring him off the bench behind Marco Belinelli and he only saw a total of 18 minutes. For now, McLemore is only on the radar in very deep leagues as he isn't very involved in the offense. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:18 am
  • James Harden scores just 17 points
    James Harden was quiet during a 111-105 win over the Suns on Thursday, scoring 17 points with nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 4-of-19 from the field.

    Advice: Interestingly, coach J.B. Bickerstaff pulled all of his starters four minutes into the the game because of sloppy play. They obviously turned it around, though. Harden usually lights up the Suns and he is also solid on the road, so this is a shocking letdown. He'll be fine and should be a top-five player going forward in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:30 pm
  • Trevor Ariza goes off again, scores 22
    Trevor Ariza went off again with 22 points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and three 3-pointers against the Suns on Thursday.

    Advice: He was killer as a power forward last year with Kevin McHale, but now he's rolling in that role again with coach J.B. Bickerstaff. Since being shifted to power forward back on Jan. 22, he averaged 17.9 points, 4.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 2.4 steals and 3.8 treys. That's good for top-10 value in that span and has boosted him to fourth-round value on the year now. If you bought low, you look really smart. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:26 pm
  • Corey Brewer scores game-high 24 points
    Corey Brewer scored a game-high 24 points against Suns on Thursday with one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: The Rockets scored 26 points in fast break, so that kind of output there is right up Brewer's alley. In his previous starts, Brewer only has averages of 9.6 points, 3.4 boards, 1.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 treys on 38.8 percent from the field. If you want to ride him while he's played better, hopefully you're not dropping anything of value. He's not an add in standard leagues yet. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:15 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) out for Thursday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will not play against the Lakers on Thursday.

    Advice: Coach Alvin Gentry was asked about a shut down and said they are evaluating it, but it's not in the plan right now. Evans hasn't warmed up in over a week and the Pelicans haven't set a date for him to return. Bryce Dejean-Jones will get a start and hopefully the Pelicans don't play Toney Douglas 22 minutes like they did on Wednesday. Norris Cole and Jrue Holiday should be locked into lineups. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:58 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) out Friday vs. Utah
    O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Mayo was able to go through a full practice with the Bucks on Thursday, and head coach Jason Kidd said that he's looking good, so at least Mayo is getting close to a return after spending half of January on the sidelines. However, O.J. is averaging just 9.1 points, 1.2 steals and 1.2 three-pointers per game on 37.4 percent shooting, so even when he does get back on the court, there's not much reason to own him in most formats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:40 pm
  • Deron Williams (hip) says he'll play Friday
    Deron Williams (right hip contusion) said after Thursday's practice that he'll play Friday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Rick Carlisle wouldn't officially confirm Williams' status, but he did say he was hopeful Deron would be out there, so it's looking like he'll play vs. the Spurs. With Williams active, J.J. Barea will return to the bench and Raymond Felton's minutes will take a hit. Owners should check back for official confirmation on Deron following Friday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:17 pm
  • Carlisle hopeful Williams can play Friday
    Rick Carlisle said that he's hopeful to have Deron Williams (right hip contusion) available for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Williams sat out Wednesday's game with the hip injury, but he was moving around better at shootaround, and he said after Thursday's practice that he'll play on Friday. Williams return to the lineup would result in J.J. Barea heading back to the bench, and there would be less minutes available for Raymond Felton. Check back for another update on Williams following Friday morning's shootaround, but it sounds like he'll be out there. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:48 am
  • Tyreke Evans doubtful for Thursday vs Lakers
    Tyreke Evans (knee) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Lakers.

    Advice: Evans sat against the Spurs on Wednesday, so it wouldn't be a huge shock to see him sit again on Thursday. We'll keep an eye out for his status, but it looks like Bryce Dejean-Jones will get another start while Norris Cole and Jrue Holiday would also benefit from Evans' absence. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:32 am
  • Marcus Thornton enjoys playing next to Harden
    Marcus Thornton expressed his desire to play more alongside James Harden.

    Advice: Thornton played alongside Harden more on Tuesday and responded with 18 points off the bench. "I was talking about that this morning," Thornton said. "I love playing with James. Teams are more focused on him. That gives me wide-open shots. In return, I can play-make for him and get him wide-open shots, too." Thornton may get an opportunity to play more alongside Harden, but his minutes are too inconsistent to warrant a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:56 am
  • Ben McLemore plays 18 minutes
    Ben McLemore (wrist) returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday against the Bulls, scoring five points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: The Kings bench wasn't hurt too badly tonight and McLemore played a well-rounded game. While he was showing some improvement thanks to a season-high 26 on Thursday, there's still no reason to add him. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:47 pm
  • Danny Green scores 16 points in 39 minutes
    Danny Green scored 16 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in a season-high 39 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Advice: Green did not hit the 30-minute mark in any game since Jan. 8, so this is a shock. He has more ups and downs than an entire amusement park of roller coasters, but Green is putting up value. In 2016, he has put up sixth-round value in his last 15 games, so it's hard to complain too much. Keep him owned in all leagues and remember not to complain to your friends too much about the bad Green nights. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:01 pm
  • Rodney Hood struggles on 3-of-12 shooting
    Rodney Hood hit just 3-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for eight points and a block on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was piping hot coming in, with his last single-digit scoring game coming on Jan. 6, while he had scored between 16 and 29 points in each of his last six games. He'll bounce back soon, but never got it going against the strong defense of Gary Harris tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:48 pm
  • Jrue Holiday scores 20 off bench
    Jrue Holiday scored 20 points off the bench against the Spurs on Wednesday with four rebounds, five assists, two steals and three turnovers in 30 minutes.

    Advice: That's a nice improvement from his 1-of-14 from Monday. The Pelicans are using a ton of two-PG lineups, including a whopping 62 total minutes of Jrue and Norris Cole in the last four games without Tyreke Evans (knee) -- they have a minus-14.8 net rating. Jrue will get his minutes regardless and flirt with early-round value going forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:42 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 51 with 11 triples
    Stephen Curry scored 51 points during a 134-121 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, seven turnovers and a career-high-tying 11 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was a ridiculous 13-of-14 from the field in the first half with eight treys, which gave him a laughable 121.4 effective field goal percentage. Curry was coming off his worst game of the season from an efficiency standpoint, but he definitely got it right back. He became the first player to hit more than 10 treys in multiple games. Get ready for a great game on Saturday night with Steph vs. Russell Westbrook. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:20 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 24 points in win
    Klay Thompson scored 24 points with four rebounds, one steal and six 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's not often a guy drops six treys in a game and one of his teammates had five more than he did. Thompson certainly has the scoring side down in his last four with an absurd 76.1 true shooting percentage and a 31.9 usage rate. That led to averages of 33.8 points, 3.0 boards, 1.5 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 5.5 treys on 60.2 percent from the field. Klay is being overshadowed big time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:10 pm
  • John Wall's 41 points are not enough vs. GSW
    John Wall's season-high 41 points were not enough during a 134-121 loss to the Warriors on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, three 3-pointers and three turnovers.

    Advice: He was 17-of-25 from the field in his best game of the season. Wall was in a shooting slump over his previous 10 at just 39.4 percent, but he should come around with a more aggressive style these days. As for the team, the Wizards' defensive rating took a pretty big hit with 134 points allowed in regulation. Wall should flirt with first-round value going forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:56 pm
  • Jeff Teague quiet in blowout win vs. Philly
    Jeff Teague finished Wednesday's blowout win with 10 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 23 minutes of action.

    Advice: It's a disappointing follow-up to Teague's 32-point eruption on Monday, but he actually played the second-most minutes of any starter, behind only Paul Millsap (10 points, four boards in 25 minutes). He's trending upward despite a cloud of trade rumors that will follow him until the deadline on Feb. 18. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:18 pm
  • McLemore off the bench, Belinelli starting
    Ben McLemore (wrist) will come off the bench against the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Advice: Marco Belinelli will stick in the starting lineup. McLemore was actually playing well before his injury and he did look good in shootaround. This move does slightly help Belinelli, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:22 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) out for Wednesday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will not play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was doubtful to play and will miss his fourth game. The Pelicans need to start winning games to prevent Evans from being a shut-down candidate. It'll be Bryce Dejean-Jones starting while Norris Cole also benefits. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:12 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) goes through shootaround
    Ben McLemore (wrist) went through shootaround on Wednesday and is still questionable.

    Advice: He did plenty of shooting and this report adds he looked good. McLemore could be closer to probable, but he's not a fantasy option tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:47 am
  • Deron Williams (hip) out Wednesday vs. Miami
    Deron Williams (right hip contusion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Williams was moving around better during Wednesday morning's shootaround, but the Mavs won't rush anything with the oft-injured point guard. It'll be Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea seeing an uptick in minutes tonight with both Williams and Devin Harris (toe) out, with Barea likely to enter the starting lineup. The Mavs play the Spurs on Friday, so we'll be considering Williams questionable for that one. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:37 am
  • Deron Williams (hip) questionable Wednesday
    Deron Williams (right hip contusion) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Williams was forced out of Monday's loss to the Hawks with the hip injury, and Rick Carlisle said after the game that he was "concerned" about the injury, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Dallas err on the side of caution with the oft-injured point guard and keep him out of Wednesday's game. J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will benefit if Williams is forced to miss any time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:04 am
  • Gerald Henderson scores 14 w/ nine boards
    Gerald Henderson scored 14 points with nine rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: He has scored in double digits in four out of his last five games, but his recent spike in playing time could be because the Blazers are trying to boost his value prior to the trade deadline. Regardless, Henderson doesn't have much upside and his role with minutes in the lower 20s is not appealing, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:59 pm
  • Marcus Thornton scores 18 off HOU bench
    Marcus Thornton got hot and hit 7-of-11 shots and four 3-pointers for 18 points, five rebounds, three assists and a steal in Tuesday's win.

    Advice: Thornton didn't even play on Saturday and scored two points in each of his previous two games, so if you had him in a DFS lineup tonight, pat yourself on the back. He goes on hot streaks occasionally, but has been far too inconsistent to plug into a standard lineup. And he was also up for some extra run tonight with Dwight Howard suspended and Clint Capela out with a thigh injury. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:30 pm
  • James Harden hands out season-high 14 dimes
    James Harden hit 10-of-19 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 26 points, four rebounds, a season-high 14 assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

    Advice: It wasn't a 40-point bomb like he dropped on Saturday, but it was pretty darn good. And don't look now, but he's hit at least half his shots in four of his last five games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Trevor Ariza scores 9, but fills stat sheet
    Trevor Ariza hit just 4-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer, but finished Tuesday's game with nine points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block.

    Advice: He wasn't great tonight, but did a little bit of everything, salvaging a decent line. He was red hot a week ago, but has scored nine or fewer points in three of his last four games. He should go on another hot streak at some point, but it's anyone's guess as to when it happens. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:19 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) doubtful Wednesday vs. SA
    Tyreke Evans (right knee) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Evans has missed the past three games do to tendinitis in his surgically repaired right knee, and it's looking like that number will hit four on Wednesday. Bryce Dejean-Jones should continue to start with Evans out, with Jrue Holiday being asked to do more on offense. Check back for official confirmation on Evans closer to Wednesday's tip. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:37 pm
  • O.J. Mayo out Tuesday against Trail Blazers
    O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) will not play against the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Mayo will miss his tenth consecutive game on Tuesday and looks to be out until at least the All-Star break as he is still without a timetable. Jerryd Bayless and Rashad Vaughn will continue to see an uptick in minutes, but neither carries much fantasy value beyond deeper leagues even with Mayo out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:42 am
  • Deron Williams suffered hip-to-hip collision
    Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said Deron Williams (hip contusion) suffered a "hip-to-hip" collision in Monday's loss to the Hawks.

    Advice: Williams was walking with a noticeable limp after Monday's game and is considered day-to-day going forward. We'll have updates after shootaround on Wednesday, but J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton are both in line for more minutes if D-Will is unable to suit up against the Heat (and beyond) Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:28 am
  • G Time Flies: Gordon Hayward scores 27 points
    Gordon Hayward scored 27 points against the Bulls during a 105-96 overtime win on Monday with 12 rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 44 minutes.

    Advice: He hit a clutch shot at the rim to tie it in regulation with four seconds left and forced a turnover on the Bulls' next possession. G Time also had one of the prettiest backdoor cuts leading to a jam of the season during OT (in link below). He's playing off the ball more, but its led to fourth-round value in January. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:50 pm
  • Rodney Hood fouls out, scores 19
    Rodney Hood scored 19 points with five rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers before fouling out against the Bulls on Monday.

    Advice: Hood has a knack for getting two quick fouls, but this was his first time fouling out in his career on six personals. On the positive side, he's quickly becoming one of the best wings in pick-and-roll and that's become the Jazz's new pet play. Hood has top-40 value in 2016 and should flirt with top-50 value going forward. It's all good with the Hood. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:38 pm
  • Patty Mills scores season-high 22 points
    Patty Mills scored a season-high 22 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in just 21 minutes against the Magic on Monday.

    Advice: This comes out of nowhere with only four points on Saturday. Mills hasn't been great these days and managed to make just 34.6 percent from the field in January. He'll need to do it a few more times to be considered as a pickup. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:54 pm
  • Jrue Holiday makes just 1-of-14 from field
    Jrue Holiday made just 1-of-14 from the field for four points against the Grizzlies on Monday with one rebound, four assists, two blocks and two turnovers.

    Advice: Yikes. Holiday just could not connect, which is surprising due to how he's been fairly efficient. Coach Alvin Gentry is going to use Jrue as his primary defender against the best guard, so that might actually hurt him slightly in fantasy. He still should be very good going forward as a must-start player. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:54 pm
  • Jeff Teague explodes for 32 points in win
    Jeff Teague made 12-of-15 from the field for a season-high 32 points during a 112-97 win over the Mavs on Monday, adding five rebounds, eight assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: His five treys were a season high to go with a wonderful 96.7 effective field goal percentage. After a month-long slump, here comes the 2014-15 All-Star with averages of 19.0 points, 2.4 boards, 6.2 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.8 treys in his last five. He's put up second-round value in that span, so anyone who bought low last week probably feels great. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:42 pm
  • John Wall scores 17 points in loss
    John Wall lost his duel with Russell Westbrook on Monday vs. the Thunder, scoring 17 points with eight assists.

    Advice: Westbrook finished with a triple-double, while Wall turned the ball over six times. He did add four boards, three blocks and two steals, but he shot just 7-of-17 from the field. Wall hasn't even been in the top-100 in standard leagues over his last five games despite averaging 15.8 points, 10.8 assists, 4.6 boards, 1.8 blocks and 1.6 steals, but it's mainly because he is shooting just 33.3 percent from the field in that span with 4.4 turnovers.

  • Ray Felton gets 25 minutes
    Raymond Felton moved back to the bench against the Hawks on Monday with 13 points, one rebound, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Deron Williams (hip) getting hurt should open up a few extra minutes for Felton. Plus, he might get added run if the Mavs rest Dirk Nowitzki on Friday or Saturday. Barea is still the better pickup, but give Felton a look. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:12 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) ruled out on Monday night
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will not play against the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: There is nothing structurally wrong, but the Pelicans likely want all of his tendinitis to go away. With Evans out, it'll be Bryce Dejean-Jones starting while Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole also benefit. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:22 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) likely won't play Monday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) likely won't play vs. the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: The Pelicans are going to be cautious, but the team is saying that he could play if it was a playoff game. Evans is a shut-down candidate unless the Pelicans can get back into the playoff hunt, so his owners should be concerned. Bryce Dejean-Jones should get another start, while Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole will both benefit. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:27 pm
  • Report: Jazz 'considering' Jeff Teague trade
    The Jazz are "indeed considering" a Jeff Teague trade, multiple sources told KSL.com.

    Advice: There has been a lot of smoke behind this particular rumor, and while it makes sense on the surface for both teams, there has been "no formal contact" made between the two sides. However, the trade deadline is now less than three weeks away, so expect the hot stove to heat up in the near future. One potential issue is Teague's "recurring left ankle injury, the result of spraining it multiple times over the past two seasons." Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 7:14 am
  • Kerr compares Curry to Price and Steve Nash
    Steve Kerr recently compared Stephen Curry to Mark Price and Steve Nash for his offensive abilities.

    Advice: "The two guys I’d maybe compare him the most to are Mark Price and Steve Nash in terms of the combination of ball-handling and passing and shooting range and creativity," Nash said. "But Steph has taken it to a new level. But he’s taken it to a new level in terms of just the range, the ballhanding and creativity. It’s pretty special." We agree, coach. We agree.

  • Stephen Curry struggles vs. the Knicks
    Stephen Curry struggled against the Knicks on Sunday, scoring 13 points on just 5-of-17 shooting.

    Advice: The Warriors got off to a brutal start to the game and had their lowest-scoring quarter of the season with 18 in the first, but they still got the job done to secure their seventh straight win. The Warriors are now 44-4 on the season and Curry will look to get back on track vs. the Wizards on Wednesday. He added four boards, four assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes. He has a minor cut on his forehead, but he's obviously going to be fine. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:19 pm
  • Wes Matthews' slump continues w/ 2-of-12 FGs
    Wes Matthews' slump continued on Sunday, as he shot just 2-of-12 from the field to finish with seven points, four boards, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes.

    Advice: The Mavs started a favorable stretch of their schedule with an easy win vs. the Suns, pushing them to within one game of the No. 5 seed Grizzlies. Matthews couldn't join the party offensively, going 1-of-8 from downtown, and he's now averaging just 6.8 points on 10-of-36 shooting in the Mavs' past four games. The perimeter gunner will look to get on track vs. the struggling Hawks on Monday. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:17 pm
  • Raymond Felton logs 36 minutes w/ Dirk out
    Raymond Felton started in place of Dirk Nowitzki (rest) on Sunday, notching 10 points, six rebounds, six assists and three steals without any turnovers in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Dirk has missed six games this season, with five of those DNPs coming during back-to-back sets. The Mavs play another back-to-back on Feb. 5/6, so Felton could earn another start if Nowitzki's four-game week is trimmed to three. The veteran guard is still just an occasional punt option in DFS leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:16 pm
  • Klay Thompson drops 34 points in win vs. NYK
    Klay Thompson dropped a game-high 34 points in Sunday's 116-95 win over the Knicks, adding two assists, one board, one steal and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: Is there a hotter player in the NBA right now? Thompson has been unconscious over his last three games, averaging 37.0 points, 2.7 boards, 2.0 assists and 5.3 pointers on 65.6 percent shooting from the field. Needless to say, he has been the best player in standard leagues in that span. This pace is not sustainable, but he should be a top-20 player the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:13 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) out Monday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: He has no timetable for a return and could miss more games. Jerryd Bayless has been getting most of Mayo's minutes, while rookie Rashad Vaughn has also been in the rotation. Leave Mayo on the wire. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:05 pm
  • Andre Iguodala plays 23 minutes in win
    Andre Iguodala (rest) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday vs. the Knicks and finished with eight points, four assists, four boards and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

    Advice: He hit his only two shot attempts from the field and had a couple of turnovers, but the Warriors didn't really need him tonight because they took care of business early on. Iguodala was averaging 6.6 points, 4.0 boards, 3.4 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.7 3-pointers during the month of January prior to Sunday, so he's not a must-own player in standard leagues while the Warriors are healthy. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 6:58 pm
  • Dwyane Wade scores 17, Heat win 4th straight
    Playing at home for only the second time since Jan. 6, the Heat defeated the visiting Hawks on Sunday behind Dwyane Wade's 17 points and eight assists in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Wade added four rebounds, two steals and one block in the victory, which extended Miami's win streak to four games. He's been scorching over Miami's past five games, but now that the Heat are getting healthy some rest may be coming his way -- owners should double-check his status for consecutive road games this Tuesday and Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 6:21 pm
  • Raymond Felton will start on Sunday
    Raymond Felton will start on Sunday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Dirk Nowitzki (rest) is getting the night off, so Chandler Parsons will start at power forward and Wesley Matthews will move to the three. Felton has been solid this season, but he's nothing more than a short-term option in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 3:58 pm
  • John Wall scores 19 w/ 13 dimes
    John Wall led the Wizards to a 123-122 win over the Rockets on Saturday, scoring 19 points with 13 assists.

    Advice: Wall is still in a major slump and is shooting just 34.6 percent from the filed in his last five games, and he was 7-of-22 in this one. Regardless, the Wizards snapped a three-game losing streak and are determined to get back into the playoff hunt, so Wall could have a monster finish to the season. He added eight boards, two blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 10:03 pm
  • Harden drops 40, Rockets lose third straight
    James Harden dropped 40 points in Saturday's 123-122 loss to the Wizards, adding 11 assists, seven boards, four steals and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: The Wizards had no answer for him on the defensive end and he even fouled Garrett Temple out of the game. The Rockets have lost three straight games, but Harden has been playing some incredible ball with averages of 30.2 points, 8.6 boards, 7.6 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 3.0 treys over his last five games. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 9:19 pm
  • Mike Conley held to eight points in win
    Mike Conley was held to just eight points on Saturday vs. the Kings, adding seven assists, four boards and one steal.

    Advice: The minutes were there, but Conley wasn't very active on offense and shot 3-of-6 from the field with two turnovers. He hasn't found his stride since returning from his Achilles injury, averaging just 10.8 points, 6.6 assists, 4.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.6 3-pointers over his last five games. He is also shooting 33.3 percent from the field in that span which means the buy-low window is wide open. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 9:09 pm
