  • Rodney Hood (concussion) out Wednesday
    Rodney Hood (concussion) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hood will have to go through the league's concussion protocol, and it is unclear when he will be able to return. Trey Burke will likely be the biggest beneficiary of this news and is worth owning in most leagues for his scoring prowess, while Joe Ingles and Elijah Millsap will see more minutes as well. Hood can be dropped in most leagues, but we will update his status once we know more. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Richardson (knee) out again Wednesday
    Jason Richardson (knee) will not play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Advice: The 76ers have no reason to risk his health and Richardson is still reportedly battling swelling and soreness, so it could be a few more games before he is cleared to play. Richardson can be dropped just about everywhere, while Jerami Grant, Hollis Thompson and Robert Covington figure to benefit the most. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Lowry out Wednesday, doubtful Friday
    Kyle Lowy (back) will not play vs. the Wolves on Wednesday, and he is considered doubtful to play vs. the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: Lowry has already said that he won't rush back from injury, so it's safe to drop him in most leagues. Greivis Vasquez will continue to draw the start and is worth a look if you need help in assists and 3-pointers, while DeMar DeRozan and Lou Williams will continue to receive a boost in value with Lowry on the shelf.

  • Terrence Jones will play vs. Kings Wednesday
    Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) will play vs. the Kings on Wednesday, though he isn't sure how many minutes.

    Advice: Jones made it through shootaround just fine and was in good spirits, so it looks like he is in the clear. Donatas Motiejunas (back) is on the sidelines and Dwight Howard (knee) is still on a minutes restriction and won't play in back-to-back sets, so there is a good chance that Jones could get some serious action down the stretch. If he is cleared to play, owners in most leagues will probably want to keep him on their bench until we know how many minutes he will get. Still, Jones has loads of upside and is worth a flier in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Terrence Jones goes through shootaround Wed
    Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) went through shootaround on Wednesday morning, and he is still listed as questionable vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Regardless of whether or not you own Jones, this is simply awesome to hear after he suffered a partially collapsed lung less than a couple of weeks ago. The Rockets are without Donatas Motiejunas (back) and Dwight Howard's playing time is heavily restricted, so Jones could get plenty of run down the stretch if he is cleared to play. We should know more details shortly, so owners should be on the lookout for an update. Due to his upside, Jones is worth a flier in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Hassan Whiteside won't be 100% for 2 weeks
    Hassan Whiteside said that his hand won't be 100 percent until he gets his 10 stitches removed in two weeks, but he will continue to play through the ailment.

    Advice: The bandage that he is wearing pretty much only lets him use three fingers on his right hand, but Whiteside is just glad that he will be completely healthy for the postseason. "It’s an awkward injury," Whiteside said. "It’s a terrible place to have stitches. There’s really nothing I can do about it." Whiteside was still able to contribute 10 points, six boards, two steals and two blocks against the Spurs on Tuesday, and he is fully expected to play vs. the Cavaliers on Thursday. Keep him locked into all lineups, but as with all Heat players, keep a close eye on the injury report. Rotoworld.com

  • Julius Randle to be cleared for contact soon?
    Julius Randle (leg) is hoping to be cleared for contact drills in about a month.

    Advice: Randle is reportedly progressing well and the Lakers believe that he is on track to play at the Las Vegas Summer League. Randle has been working on his mid-range game as well as his footwork in the post, and he has also had workouts with legendary point guard Steve Nash which will inevitably help his passing vision. We will track his progress very closely in the offseason, and his value could be on the rise if the Lakers don't address their frontcourt needs. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Barea (ankle) probable for Wednesday
    J.J. Barea (ankle) said that he is ready to play on Wednesday vs. the Thunder, and the Mavericks have him listed as probable.

    Advice: Barea has missed the past four games for the Mavericks, so it wouldn't be surprising if he doesn't get a lot of run tonight. With averages of 7.5 points and 3.3 assists this season, Barea belongs on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Blake Griffin critical of Clipper fans
    Blake Griffin was not happy with the home crowd after Tuesday's loss because the Warriors fans clearly had more energy.

    Advice: "Home-court advantage is just not there for us," Griffin said. "If that's how it feels in the playoffs, it's not looking good. I don't know what we could do, but it would be great if it wasn't that way. It's kind of like when we play the Lakers. I don't know, maybe worse." Griffin was obviously frustrated after the game, but he played phenomenal on Tuesday and finished with 40 points, 12 boards, five assists, one steal and three blocks. Sparks fly every time the Clippers and Warriors play, so hopefully we get another chance to see them square off in the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

  • Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) expected to play Wed
    Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) practiced on Tuesday, and he is expected to play vs. the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: Dedmon has missed four out of the last five games because of his ankle, but it's a great sign that he was able to practice in full. Dedmon may rejoin the starting lineup which would shift Andrew Nicholson to the bench, while Channing Frye would inevitably lose some value as well. Owners in deeper leagues who need help in blocks and boards should give Dedmon a look. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight hoping to prove people wrong
    Brandon Knight has often been overlooked and underrated throughout his career, but he is hoping that his play this season has proved many people wrong.

    Advice: "A lot of people tried to put limitations on my game and say I wouldn’t be this, I wouldn’t be that," Knight said. "I think I’ve proven a lot of people wrong. I don’t think a lot of people thought I would be here based on my first two years." Knight has had a brilliant season thus far, but a nagging ankle injury has prevented him from keeping that momentum going since being traded to the Suns. Regardless, the Bucks traded Knight because they knew he would have a hefty price tag in the summer, and it's going to be interesting to see how committed Phoenix is this offseason. Knight's status is still up in the air for Thursday's game vs. the Warriors, but we should have another update on him soon. Rotoworld.com

  • Stephen Curry jukes Chris Paul, goes viral
    Stephen Curry finished Tuesday's victory in L.A. with 27 points, four 3-pointers, four assists, one steal and one ankle-breaking move against Chris Paul.

    Advice: This is a somewhat pedestrian line for Steph, who is one of the leading MVP candidates. We just needed an excuse to proliferate his ridiculous juke-move in the second quarter, which sent elite defender CP3 sprawling onto his backside while Curry sank a jumper from the corner. Follow the link below, and enjoy. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Paul scores 27 pts w/ full line in loss
    Chris Paul scored 27 points in a losing effort vs. the Warriors in L.A on Tuesday, finishing with one 3-pointer, two rebounds, nine assists and one steal.

    Advice: CP3 has been a top-5 fantasy value by virtually any metric this season -- 8-cat or 9-cat, per-game or cumulative. He rivals Kawhi Leonard as one of the game's deadliest mid-range shooters and his 10.3 ppg off pull-up jumpers are tops in the NBA, far ahead of Mo Williams (8.9), Stephen Curry (8.6) and Russell Westbrook (8.4). He also leads the NBA in assist-to-turnover ratio (4.1) and will be a fixture on plenty of championship-winning fantasy teams this season. Rotoworld.com

  • David Lee scores 17 points w/ Draymond out
    David Lee made another fill-in start at PF on Tuesday, finishing with 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting with seven boards, one assist and zero defensive stats in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Draymond Green was resting a shin injury and may miss another game during the Warriors' back-to-back set on Saturday and Sunday. Lee was solid offensively tonight but he's yet to take advantage of his rare starts this season -- in three games he's now averaging a mediocre 14.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.3 blocks in 27.3 minutes. That's not enough juice to squeeze value out of Lee in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:01 pm
  • Blake Griffin scores 40 pts in losing effort
    Blake Griffin's elbow injury didn't cause a hitch on Tuesday as he racked up 40 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, one steal and three blocks, while making 16-of-25 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs.

    Advice: It helped that Warriors forward Draymond Green (shin) was out, which left Griffin matched up with defensive-sieve David Lee for most of the night. You won't hear Blake's fantasy owners complain. He was the focal point of L.A.'s attack tonight and has three more games this week, so this statistical cornucopia is an early gift for all of his owners. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: He left zero room for doubt, saying, "I want to be a Knick next season." Amundson is understandably thrilled with his current starting role for New York, and he may prioritize court-time over wins when weighing contract offers this summer. Rotoworld.com

  • Andre Iguodala dishes seven assists Tuesday
    Andre Iguodala had six points, seven assists and one steal in 29 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, helping Golden State earn a 110-106 win vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: The Warriors play games on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday this week and it would be surprising if Iguodala doesn't sit out one game -- he rested on Saturday and has had three precautionary DNP-CDs in the past month. Harrison Barnes, Leandro Barbosa and Shaun Livingston should all pick up extra minutes of Iguodala sits out this weekend. Rotoworld.com

  • Hassan Whiteside plays well off Miami's bench
    Hassan Whiteside's lacerated right hand didn't slow him down vs. the Spurs, as he racked up 10 points, six rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks without any turnovers in 23 minutes off Miami's bench.

    Advice: Whiteside played with an awkward bandage that limited the use of his right hand, but he made some emphatic right-handed blocks and produced more than fantasy owners could have reasonably anticipated. He almost had to play tonight with Udonis Haslem (illness) out of commission, but his solid play suggests he'll be fine for Thursday's road game regardless of Haslem's status. Keep Whiteside locked into all active lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:11 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside (hand) expected to play Tues
    Hassan Whiteside (hand) is expected to play on Tuesday.

    Advice: Whiteside will come off the bench behind starting center Chris Andersen. His pain tolerance is a main concern for the Heat, as well as the fear that he'll re-tear his stitches before the wound fully heals. His offense is likely to suffer due to the bulky protective bandage on his hand, but his talent is great enough that he belongs in all active lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:28 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside (hand) a game-time decision
    Updating a previous report, Hassan Whiteside (hand) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with the Spurs.

    Advice: Head coach Erik Spoelstra said that if Whiteside can play, it might only be for seven minutes, so he's clearly going to be limited tonight. He's not really capable of using his right hand at all, but Miami is so banged up that they could actually use a one-armed Whiteside even in just a seven-minute stretch. He's a very risky option tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:34 pm
  • Pain tolerance main obstacle for Whiteside
    Hassan Whiteside (hand) said that pain tolerance will dictate whether he can play.

    Advice: "It felt weird, but I’m gonna do the best I can," Whiteside said. "You’re gonna see a lot more lefty. As long as I don’t spread my fingers and they keep them taped together, I can’t reopen the stitches. It’s surrounded by a pad, so it can be slapped and everything. It’s just about what I can tolerate on the court with the pain. They cleared me. It’s just the performance and how well I can play." Whiteside remains questionable for tonight's game, but it sounds like even if he does play, he's going to be very limited on the offensive end. Udonis Haslem's won't be worth using in most leagues if Whiteside suits up. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:17 pm
  • Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) questionable Wed.
    Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: Jones offers plenty of upside, and with Donatas Motiejunas (back) on the shelf, and Dwight Howard still with a minutes limit, Jones could potentially get some decent run upon his return. He's worth a speculative add in most leagues with this news, so make sure he's not sitting on your waiver wire. Josh Smith's value would take a minor hit with Jones back in the rotation.

    J.J. Barea (ankle) went through a full practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: We'll be considering Barea questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder, and if he is able to return to the lineup, Raymond Felton will likely fall out of the rotation. Devin Harris and Rajon Rondo would also likely lose some minutes upon Barea's return. Rotoworld.com

  • David Lee will start Tuesday vs. the Clippers
    David Lee will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Lee will replace Draymond Green (rest) in the starting lineup, and he's good for some points and rebounds, although he really doesn't do much else. Through two starts this season, Lee has put in averages of 12.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game on 50.0 percent shooting from the field. He can be viewed as a low-end streamer option in deep leagues, but he's not a great play in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Hood (concussion) out for Monday
    Rodney Hood (concussion-like symptoms) will not return on Monday night.

    Advice: If Hood didn't have bad luck regarding his playing status, he'd have no luck at all. He has injuries to both feet and missed most of last week due to a stomach bug. Hood is likely out for at least a couple games, so Joe Ingles is worth a look in standard leagues now. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Jason Richardson out for a few games
    Jason Richardson (knee) will miss a few games due to knee soreness and swelling.

    Advice: The 76ers have just eight games left this season, so Richardson will likely miss at least half of them. The team will likely start Nerlens Noel, Jerami Grant, Robert Covington, Ish Smith and Furkan Aldemir going forward. Richardson can be dropped everywhere while Grant, Covington and Aldemir benefit slightly. Rotoworld.com

  • Hassan Whiteside (hand) questionable for Tues
    Hassan Whiteside (hand) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Tuesday.

    Advice: He was cleared to play on Monday despite his hand wound not being entirely healed. It sounds like Miami plays to have him play, but some discomfort at shootaround or in warmups could keep him out of the game. Fantasy owners can start him at their own risk with four games. If your other options aren't promising, Whiteside's upside this week is hard to keep on a fantasy bench. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 2:06 pm
  • Surprise: Whiteside cleared to play Tuesday
    Updating a previous item, Hassan Whiteside (hand) has been cleared to play and is expected to return to the lineup on Tuesday against the Spurs.

    Advice: Considering we just posted 25 minutes ago that Whiteside wouldn't be rushed to return, it's quite the development for fantasy owners and for Miami's playoff chances. Owners, especially in weekly formats, have to be certain Whiteside is in the lineup even though he'll be playing at less than 100 percent. The upside is just too great. "It felt weird, but I'm gonna do the best I can," Whiteside said of playing with his hand taped and padded up. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 11:14 am
  • Hassan Whiteside won't be rushed to return
    Hassan Whiteside (hand) will not be rushed back to action.

    Advice: Whiteside continues to test out his injured hand to see how much he's capable of doing, but Erik Spoelstra said the team has no timetable and "it needs to heal a little more before we take the next step." The actual injury is a split in his right hand between the forefinger and ring finger, and fantasy owners are left in a bad spot as Whiteside continues to heal. With Chris Andersen (calf) also banged up, Udonis Haslem is locked into a major role right now. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:51 am
  • Kyle Lowry (back) out again on Monday night
    Kyle Lowry (back) will not play on Monday against the Rockets.

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

  • Blake Griffin's elbow a little swollen, sore
    Blake Griffin (elbow) admitted that he was a "a little swollen, a little sore, but OK" after taking a blow to the elbow on Sunday.

    Advice: Griffin banged his elbow in what was the hardest shot he's sustained since returning, and although it sounds like he'll be fine, it's certainly worth monitoring considering what he's been through this season. For now, there is nothing to suggest it's a serious concern. Rotoworld.com

  • Jones, Motiejunas expected back this season
    Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) and Donatas Motiejunas (back) are both expected back before the end of the regular season, according to Rockets GM Daryl Morey.

    Advice: That would be great news for a Rockets team that is shorthanded on its frontline. Although neither player has a specific timetable or circled date in an attempt to return, it's encouraging to hear both are making progress. When each is back in the fold, Josh Smith will obviously lose some of his luster. Rotoworld.com

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

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

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

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

    Advice: After an eight-game absence, Knight is finally back.

  • Hassan Whiteside (hand) ruled out vs. Detroit
    Hassan Whiteside (hand) will not play vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

    Advice: He was questionable to play but Miami ruled him out two hours before tip-off, so presumably his hand remains swollen and painful. The risk of re-tearing the stitches is an even greater concern, and owners will simply have to hope that Whiteside can suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs. Chris Andersen (calf) is also sidelined on Sunday, so expect heavy minutes for Udonis Haslem and Michael Beasley. Rotoworld.com

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

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

    J.J. Barea (ankle) will not be able to play vs. the Pacers on Sunday.

    Advice: The Mavericks desperately could have used Barea tonight with Monta Ellis (calf) out of commission, but instead they will have to lean on Rajon Rondo, Devin Harris, Richard Jefferson and Raymond Felton.

  • Hassan Whiteside upgraded to questionable
    Hassan Whiteside (hand) has been upgraded to questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: He has missed the last two games with a nasty laceration in his hand that required 10 stitches, but the Heat desperately need his size vs. Andre Drummond and the Pistons. Whiteside will likely be a game-time call, so his owners will have to be on alert for an update. Whiteside belongs in all lineups if he is cleared to play, while Udonis Haslem, Henry Walker and Michael Beasley will all benefit if he is unable to give it a go. For what it's worth, there is still no word on whether or not Chris Andersen will be able to play Sunday, so the Heat may have to get creative with their rotations. Rotoworld.com

    Rodney Hood (illness) returned from a two-game absence vs. the Thunder on Saturday and scored seven points on 3-of-8 shooting with three boards, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

    Advice: The minutes were there for Hood, but this was a rather boring line and he wasn't very aggressive tonight. The Jazz also opted to go with newly acquired Chris Johnson down the stretch, but they probably just wanted to ease Hood back into action. As of right now, Hood is only an option in deeper leagues for owners in need of 3-pointers, but he does have upside and owners will want to monitor him down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

  • Warriors lock up No. 1 seed in West, win 60th
    Stephen Curry made 8-of-13 from the field with six 3-pointers for 25 points during a 108-95 win in Milwaukee on Saturday, adding four rebounds, six assists, one steal and six turnovers.

    Advice: He didn't have a great first half and was in foul trouble, but Curry and the Warriors turned it on in the third quarter -- that's been their calling card lately. They won their ninth consecutive game and have clinched the top seed in the Western Conference with their 60th win. Curry has been flat-out ridiculous from deep over his last five, making 5.4 treys per game on 61.4 percent from that range. He has to be the favorite for MVP. Meanwhile it's probably safe to say Steve Kerr made the right call with the Warriors winning their 60th game of the season on the same night the Knicks lost their 60th. Rotoworld.com

  • David Lee plays 21 minutes vs. Bucks
    David Lee played 21 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday with 12 points, four rebounds, one assist and two turnovers.

    Advice: The Warriors blew out the Bucks, so Lee didn't play in the fourth quarter. Draymond Green is dealing with some minutes injuries, so he could get another game of rest. Lee won't be worth owning while Dray is active, though. Rotoworld.com

    David Lee will start for Draymond Green on Saturday against the Bucks.

    Advice: He played 31 minutes in his last start and scored 13 points on 4-of-12 from the field, but that was without Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry. When Lee is with those two in 138 minutes this season, he has a solid 19.4 usage rate, so he should still be able to produce. He's worth starting in standard leagues tonight.

    Rodney Hood (illness) is probable to play against the Thunder on Saturday.

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

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

  • Curry posts 38 & 10 with eight 3-pointers
    Stephen Curry torched the Grizzlies in an easy road win on Friday, scoring 38 points on 12-of-22 shooting (8-of-12 3PTs, 6-of-6 FTs) with three rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and one block.

    Advice: This is just a crippling line if you had to go against Curry this week and right next door Klay Thompson wasn't bad either with 28 points and six treys of his own. Steve Kerr has made a number of overtures to the effect that rest is good, and owners have to hope that this just means they get hit with a game or two of rest and nothing more. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Paul scores an efficient 25 points
    Chris Paul was magnificent against the 76ers during a 119-98 win on Friday with 25 points, three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three 3-pointers on 9-of-15 from the field in just 30 minutes.

    Advice: It was all just too easy for CP3 with 19 points coming in the first half. Paul's offensive game is clicking at the right time, averaging 23.8 points, 4.4 boards, 12.0 dimes, 2.2 steals and 1.8 treys on 55.6 percent from the field and 88.9 percent from the line in his last five. If CP3 keeps this up, he'll likely be on a lot of fantasy championship teams. Rotoworld.com

  • Blake Griffin has quiet game in easy win
    Blake Griffin wasn't involved in the offense much against the 76ers on Friday with 10 points, five boards, eight assists and one turnover on 5-of-8 from the field in 29 minutes.

    Advice: He only scored two of the Clippers' 62 points in the first half and posted a pedestrian usage rate of 12.5 in the entire game. Griffin hasn't quite been himself since returning from an elbow injury, averaging 18.0 points, 8.2 boards, 4.9 assists and 1.3 steals in his previous seven games. He should be better on Sunday in Boston. Rotoworld.com

Iguodala had a bad game in a win on Friday, making 1-of-11 from the field for three points with six boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Magic head coach James Borrego praised Dewayne Dedmon's effort on the defensive end during a recent interview.

    Advice: "He gives us energy," Borrego said. "He gives us an edge. He gives us toughness. He challenges shots, passes. And then we have another big guy right next to him there to clog the paint and challenge shots. The length of those two, the size, is a good combination for us defensively." It sounds like Dedmon will remain in the starting lineup as the Magic close out their season, but with averages of just 4.8 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks per game as a starter, he can only be viewed as a rebounding and shot-blocking specialist in very deep leagues.

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.

  • Andrew Bogut backs Stephen Curry for MVP
    Andrew Bogut said that Stephen Curry is the obvious choice to win the MVP Award this season.

    Advice: "He only needs to play 25, 30 minutes, and we’re winning games by 15, 20 points," Bogut said. "If he had to play 45 minutes for us, I’m sure he’d be averaging greater numbers, so in a way, it’s kind of flawed. He’s the MVP in my opinion. We’re the best team in the league. We have the best record in the league. I don’t think it’s close in my opinion." It's hard to argue with Bogut's logic as the Warriors usually have their games all but won by the end of the third quarter, and Curry has had some memorable performances this season. With season averages of 23.4 points, 7.9 assists, 4.3 boards, 2.1 steals and 3.4 3-pointers in just 32.9 minutes per game, Curry's owners couldn't be any more excited at the moment. Rotoworld.com

    The Warriors clinched the Pacific Division with Tuesday's win in Portland, led by Stephen Curry's 33 points on 13-of-22 shooting, five 3-pointers, two rebounds, 10 assists and one steal.

    Advice: He turned the ball over just twice in 34 minutes, a rare treat for 9-cat owners, and continues to be a one-man army for fantasy GMs. The sole concern is that Curry may be rested at some point during Golden State's final 11 games -- they're easily the No. 1 seed in the West and have a 4.5-game lead on the Hawks for potential home court advantage in the Finals. The Warriors haven't won the Pacific Division since 1976, and the fact that they clinched with 12 games remaining underscores how impressive they've been all season. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He tied his season-high with five turnovers but that's uncharacteristic and it's the least of his fantasy owners' concerns -- as long as he's playing 28+ minutes per game, Iguodala is a solid play in all standard leagues. We'll keep an eye on his role over the coming week, as Klay Thompson's return and the Warriors' iron-clad playoff positioning could lead to some precautionary rest for Iguodala. Rotoworld.com

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

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

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

    Advice: Channing Frye (illness) is also out tonight, which means Kyle O'Quinn, Andrew Nicholson and Aaron Gordon will combine to fill the void at power forward. O'Quinn would be the best option if he gets sufficient playing time, but Andrew Nicholson is also worth a look as Orlando's fill-in starter. Rotoworld.com

  • Dewayne Dedmon will be a game-time call
    Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) will be a game-time decision on Sunday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Dedmon has been sidelined for the past two games which has forced the Magic to turn to the veteran Channing Frye, but he has been pretty underwhelming. We will let you know if Dedmon is cleared to play, and even though he would likely reclaim his spot in the starting lineup, he is only worth a look for owners in need of blocks and boards.

  • 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

  • Stephen Curry scores 24 points in win
    Stephen Curry had a mediocre line by his standards against the Jazz during a 106-91 win on Saturday, scoring 24 points with three rebounds, three assists, three steals and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: The Warriors are 33-2 at home and were able to score more than 100 points in all of their last 28 games. They are also leading the NBA in offensive and defense efficiency on the season. With James Harden having a bad game tonight and Anthony Davis getting hurt, Curry had a good night for his MVP case. His fantasy owners will have to be aware of his road rest with the Warriors possibly clinching home court as soon as next week. Rotoworld.com
