    • Damjan Rudez out for Saturday night
      Damjan Rudez (illness) will not play against the Nets on Saturday.

      Advice: With C.J. Miles (illness) doubtful, Chris Copeland should get back in the rotation tonight. Rudez had a good run for about a week, but he's also fallen out of the rotation for the most part. Rotoworld.com

    • Spencer Hawes (knee) is out on Saturday
      Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play on Saturday vs. the Raptors.

      Advice: He is said to be nearing a return, but only owners in deep leagues should consider adding him for the time being. Hawes would need an injury to Blake Griffin or DeAndre Jordan before we could recommend an add, so you can safely leave him on the wire. Glen Davis will see a few extra minutes Saturday, but is not a fantasy option by any means. Rotoworld.com

    • Rodney Stuckey (face) probable Saturday
      Rodney Stuckey (face) is now probable for Saturday's game against the Nets.

      Advice: He is dealing with some swelling in his right eye but it isn't believed to be too serious. If Stuckey can't go, expect George Hill and C.J. Watson to see an uptick in minutes. Rotoworld.com

      Landry Fields (concussion) is out for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

      Advice: He failed his concussion testing Saturday morning and will remain on the sidelines. James Johnson will continue to see an increase in minutes and is worth a look in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Quincy Pondexter (ankle) questionable Sat
      Quincy Pondexter is dealing with a right ankle sprain, and is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

      Advice: Pondexter has a limited role in Memphis, and he is only an asset in extremely deep leagues. If he sits, expect Vince Carter to see more minutes off of the bench Saturday. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Spencer Hawes (knee) upgraded to doubtful
      Spencer Hawes (knee) has been upgraded to doubtful for Saturday's game.

      Advice: He wasn't expected to be ready in time for Saturday's game, so even if he doesn't play it is a great sign that he is getting closer. However, Hawes is still only an asset in deeper leagues, and it will remain that way unless Blake Griffin or DeAndre Jordan suffers an injury. If Hawes sits this one, Glen Davis may see a few extra minutes in the rotation. Rotoworld.com

      Chris Bosh (calf) will not play on Saturday vs. Memphis.

      Advice: Bosh was targeting this game for his return, but he will unfortunately remain on the sidelines and his owners will have to remain patient. Shawne Williams (foot) is also suddenly questionable for Saturday's contest, meaning Udonis Haslem would likely play all the minutes he can handle. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Dudley makes NBA history Friday
      Jared Dudley made NBA history during Friday's game, becoming the first player to hit 10 or more shots while connecting on three 3-pointers without a miss.

      Advice: This arguably goes down as one of the craziest performances in the NBA this season, and if you played Jared Dudley in daily leagues you were more than likely handsomely rewarded. While Dudley will probably never come close to doing this again, he has earned a decent role in Milwaukee following the loss of Jabari Parker (leg) for the season. If you are in need of 3-pointers and steals, Dudley is worth a look. Rotoworld.com

    • Lance Stephenson (hip) out for Saturday
      Lance Stephenson (hip) will not play on Saturday vs. the Magic as expected.

      Advice: There is still a chance that he could play on Monday, but given how much he has struggled in Charlotte it may be wise to continue resting him until he is at 100 percent. There is no doubt that Stephenson has upside, but at this point in the season he is only worth owing as a stash in the hopes that he can turn things around. Gerald Henderson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and Gary Neal will all continue seeing extra minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • Rodney Stuckey dealing with swollen right eye
      Rodney Stuckey is dealing with a swollen right eye, and his status is not known for Saturday's game against the Nets.

      Advice: He suffered a blow to the face from Andre Drummond in the third quarter of Friday's game and was not able to return. Stuckey can barely see out of his eye so there is a real possibility that he could rest on Saturday. If he does sit, expect George Hill and C.J. Watson to carry the load for the Pacers. Rotoworld.com

    • Evans goes for 11 and 16 in Kings' loss
      Reggie Evans scored 11 points on 5-of-13 shooting with 16 rebounds and one steal in the Kings' 115-106 home loss to the Suns on Friday.

      Advice: Evans is a solid rebounder but struggles defensively and with the Kings having sent their depth away this offseason he's being relied upon offensively. Kings fans can only hope that DeMarcus Cousins (illness) can get back on the floor Saturday night against the Knicks. Rotoworld.com

    • Isaiah Thomas gets his revenge game in Sacto
      Isaiah Thomas enjoyed a solid revenge game in Friday's win over the reeling Kings, scoring 17 points on 7-of-17 shooting with two threes, three boards, five assists and a steal in 29 minutes.

      Advice: Thomas took over in the fourth quarter like he did so many times playing for the Kings, repeatedly taunting the vicinity of where Kings' decision-makers would normally sit but weren't there for this particular game. They say revenge is a dish best served cold, but in this case it came in 30 minutes or less and steaming hot. Rotoworld.com

    • Wroten posts effecient 22-4-4 line in loss
      Tony Wroten scored 22 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 7-of-13 shots (1-of-4 3PTs, 7-of-9 FTs) with four rebounds, four assists and two steals in 27 minutes.

      Advice: Wroten won't shoot it this well on most nights and he has had a hard time staying on the court. He could be worth a look in 8-cat leagues but the emergence of K.J. McDaniels and Robert Covington complicates what was once an open season for Wroten hucking up shots. Hollis Thompson was also out tonight, giving some minutes to the rest of the rotation. Rotoworld.com

    • Mozgov goes for 11 and 14 on Friday
      Timofey Mozgov scored 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting with 14 rebounds in Friday's win over the Wolves.

      Advice: Mozgov had been in a scoring slump but we'd take Tuesday's line including two steals and two blocks over the empty defensive output from tonight. He's rolling along with top-100 value and owners should be more or less happy with the output. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 1:31 am
    • Thad Young posts strong line in loss to DEN
      Thaddeus Young scored 23 points on 10-of-21 shooting (no threes) with six rebounds, four assists and two steals in Friday's loss to the Nuggets.

      Advice: Young hit 3-of-4 free throws tonight and moved his average to 45.5 percent over the last six games, highlighting the struggles he has had from the stripe. With percentages that are in the dumps he certainly has buy low appeal, particularly when you factor in his mother's death and the return of Ricky Rubio as mitigating factors. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo hits just 1-of-9 shots, has 13 assists
      Mo Williams hit just 1-of-9 shots for two points but handed out 13 assists to go with five rebounds and two blocks in 29 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: If it's not one thing it's another these days for Williams, who can't stay healthy or put together consistent outings. Ricky Rubio played 0-on-5 and should be back in the next few weeks, so there is a small window for Williams to be productive in but he should be viewed as a desperation option at best. Rotoworld.com

    • Harris plays just 15 minutes off the bench
      Devin Harris played just 15 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring six points on 3-of-8 shooting and just three steals to round out his stat line.

      Advice: Harris has been hurt pretty badly so far by the Rajon Rondo trade, averaging just 18.8 minutes, 8.3 points, 1.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.5 treys per game while hitting 40 percent of his looks. The money counting stats aren't bad but he needs more minutes to make it work for standard league owners, and that just doesn't appear to be in the cards with Rondo there. Rotoworld.com

    • Young hits five threes on 5-of-16 night
      Nick Young hit 5-of-8 threes but missed his other eight shots from the field, finishing with 15 points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 29 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: Young is never going to be an efficiency monster and he has done enough recently to be owned in most formats. In 20 games this season, he is averaging 14.9 points with 2.5 treys and 1.2 combined steals and blocks while hitting 40 percent from the field and 89 percent from the line -- good for top 75-110 value in 8- and 9-cat formats, respectively.

    • Lin posts versatile line but hits only 2-of-8
      Jeremy Lin scored five points on 2-of-8 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three blocks in 22 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: Lin has top 120-150 (8/9 cat) value in a season dominated by Kobe Bryant, which may be changing a bit to favor the little guys now that Kobe has been forced to look at his own role in the Lakers' disaster. This line has flaws and Lin's performance this season can be picked apart, but knowing things can't get much worse this 'floor' may deserve the benefit of the doubt. Rotoworld.com

    • Marc Gasol goes for 29 and eight vs. HOU
      Marc Gasol scored 29 points on 12-of-21 shooting (1-of-1 from deep, 4-of-4 from the line) with eight rebounds, four assists and two blocks in the Grizzlies' 117-111 overtime loss to the Rockets.

      Advice: Gasol's knee hasn't come up during game coverage in a while and owners can breathe a bit better as a result. He's returning late first round value on the season. Rotoworld.com

      Paul Millsap scored 22 points on 8-of-10 shooting (1-of-1 3PTs, 5-of-6 FTs) with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in the Hawks' 107-77 blowout loss to the Bucks on Friday.

      Advice: The Hawks were due for a stinker and with 22 turnovers and no defense this game was over at halftime. Owners should mostly disregard the outcomes here, including DeMarre Carroll's 0-for-6 outing with just four boards and a steal, and Kyle Korver's 1-of-8 shooting night. Al Horford snuck away with some stats, posting 13 points, five boards and two blocks in the loss. Rotoworld.com

    • Pachulia goes for 14 & eight in Atlanta
      Zaza Pachulia started at center and scored 14 points with eight assists and three steals in the Bucks' blowout win over the Hawks in his old Atlanta stomping grounds.

      Advice: Pachulia logged 26 minutes and he could play this much nightly if Ersan Ilyasova's concussion issue is serious, though we don't know that to be the case at this point. His value has been in the tank for the past two weeks so it's not a run-to-the-wire moment, but if everything breaks perfectly he could end up with some value. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:53 pm
    • Marshall quiet in start for the Bucks
      Kendall Marshall started at point guard in Friday's blowout win over the Hawks, scoring just four points on 2-of-6 shooting with five assists and two steals in 25 minutes.

      Advice: Marshall is a terrible asset in standard leagues unless he is dominating touches and getting 35-plus minutes per game. That's not going to happen with this team barring a number of injuries . Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:41 pm
    • Henson (foot) returns to action on Friday
      John Henson (foot) returned to action on Friday, logging 18 minutes on his way to five points, five boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks.

      Advice: Henson did this damage in a garbage-time environment but not to the extent that we should totally discount this performance. He hasn't been able to stay healthy and his effectiveness has been a problem at times, but when playing at peak levels he has flashed plenty of upside. Ersan Ilyasova's concussion-related absence could help his stock and we don't want to get too high over one game, but he's worth a look as a speculative add. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:37 pm
    • Dudley ties NBA best night w/ 10-of-10 FGs
      Jared Dudley tied an NBA season best shooting performance (Jarrett Jack) with 10-of-10 makes from the field, finishing with a season-high 24 points, four threes, four boards, two assists and a season-high four steals to boot.

      Advice: Dudley logged 24 minutes off the bench and this has fluke written all over it. The Bucks just had a players only meeting and perhaps that boosted the veterans tonight, but the best we can say about Dudley is that he's worth a look. Ersan Ilyasova's sudden concussion-related absence could boost his profile, but one look at Dudley's game log is proof why owners shouldn't cut anybody of value here. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:34 pm
    • McHale: Terrence Jones could miss 4-6 weeks
      Coach Kevin McHale said Terrence Jones (leg) could be out for a month to six weeks.

      Advice: Well, now it makes a little more sense why the Rockets picked up Josh Smith. Jones' nerve damage to his leg was much worse than the Rockets were letting on, so it'll likely be a two-way split at power forward for Smith and Donatas Motiejunas -- they'll also get some minutes at center. Jones can be cut in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Anthony Davis puts up a full line vs. Spurs
      Anthony Davis was his usual stat-stuffing self against the Spurs during a win on Friday, scoring 22 points with 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and five blocks in 38 minutes.

      Advice: That seven-point dud from Saturday is a distant memory. Davis did have a fall under the basket and said he missed up his right thumb, but it wasn't bleeding and he said he wasn't concerned about it on the post-game Pelicans broadcast. He'll get to play his first game in Chicago of his career, so expect him to try and put on a show in front of his home town. Rotoworld.com

    • Marco Belinelli scores 13 points off bench
      Marco Belinelli scored 13 points off the bench against the Pelicans on Friday with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He's played 32.2 minutes per game in his last five, averaging 12.0 points, 2.6 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.0 treys. Belinelli is the biggest beneficiary of Kawhi Leonard (hand) missing time, but he's still not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:08 pm
    • Reggie Evans starting at center on Friday
      Reggie Evans will start at center against the Suns on Friday.

      Advice: With Ryan Hollins (personal) out, he was really the only choice to start. Evans is a good bet for double-digit boards, but he won't do much else. Derrick Williams could also get a little extra burn tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 6:13 pm
    • Rodney Stuckey (facial contusion) out Fri
      Rodney Stuckey (facial contusion) went to the locker room in the third quarter on Friday and will not return.

      Advice: Andre Drummond hit him in the face and perhaps he was poked in the eye. Stuckey needed help walking back to the locker room and maybe he couldn't see properly. Hopefully he didn't scratch his cornea or else it could cost him time. C.J. Watson and George Hill would get more run while Donald Sloan would likely get back in the rotation. Stuckey checked out with nine points, five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against his former team. Rotoworld.com

      Yesterday, 4:19 pm
    • John Henson expected to play on Friday
      John Henson (foot) is expected to play against the Hawks on Friday.

      Advice: He's been out for a month and hasn't played more than 21 minutes in a game all season, so the Bucks probably won't unleash him even with Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) and Larry Sanders (illness) out. Henson also doesn't play much power forward, so fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:43 pm
    • Zaza Pachulia getting the start at center
      Zaza Pachulia will start at center against the Hawks on Friday.

      Advice: John Henson is expected to come off the bench behind Zaza, so the team won't need him to play too many minutes. Although, Henson hasn't played more than 21 minutes in any game this season and has been out since Nov. 25, so expect Zaza to play around 30 tonight. Rotoworld.com

    • Kendall Marshall starting, O.J. Mayo benched
      Kendall Marshall will enter the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. Atlanta, shifting Brandon Knight over to SG, and sending O.J. Mayo to the bench.

      Advice: Mayo has been struggling lately, shooting just 4-of-14 from the field over the last two games. Marshall hasn't done much this season to warrant attention in standard leagues, and he only managed to put up three points and four assists during his last start. This will be the 13th different starting lineup for the Bucks this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Damjan Rudez out for Friday night

      Advice: He has been dealing with a sprained knee basically since Michael Carter-Williams returned to the lineup. Wroten should be busy tonight with Hollis Thompson (illness) out. He's not a great guy in standard leagues, but he's an option in daily points leagues tonight. Rotoworld.com

    • Lance Stephenson (hip) hopeful for Monday
      Lance Stephenson (hip) will not play Friday vs. OKC or Saturday vs. Orlando, but is hopeful for Monday's game vs. Milwaukee.

      Advice: "I think we had a good idea he’d be out longer – it’s a tough [injury] day-to-day; where it is makes it hard to know," coach Steve Clifford said. "[Monday] at the very earliest. He hasn’t been able to do anything. He’s just getting to the point where he can even shoot." Gary Neal, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and Gerald Henderson will see an uptick in value with Stephenson sidelined. Rotoworld.com

      John Henson (foot) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

      Advice: Larry Sanders (flu) and Ersan Ilyasova (concussion) have already been ruled out for this one, so the Bucks could really use Henson back in the lineup. However, he's been out since Nov. 25, so his conditioning probably isn't quite there yet. Check back for an official update on Henson's status closer to tip-off, but know that he'll be a risky option in daily leagues despite the opportunity. Rotoworld.com

    • John Henson (foot) questionable for Friday
      John Henson (foot) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

      Advice: Henson is averaging 4.2 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks per game over 12 minutes of action this season. Until he can actually step on the court, Henson can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeremy Lin takes a step back on Thursday
      Jeremy Lin scored six points with one rebound, two assists and two steals on 2-of-8 from the field against the Bulls on Thursday.

      Advice: He had a nice game on Tuesday, but couldn't get anything going tonight. Over his last 13 games, Lin has averaged just 7.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 0.8 steals, 1.6 turnovers and 0.7 triples on 32.7 percent from the field. That's not going to get it done for fantasy owners in standard leagues, so his owners should have their eyes peeled for a pickup. Rotoworld.com

    • Nick Young doesn't play well on Christmas
      Nick Young made 1-of-6 from the field for three points with one rebound, two assists and one 3-pointer on Thursday against the Bulls.

      Advice: Well, at least his girlfriend bought him an Impala for Christmas. Young is just 6-of-19 in his two games without Kobe Bryant (rest), so he's been a bit of a letdown. He's been in the top 60 for fantasy value over the previous two weeks, so he'll be worth owning in standard leagues thanks to his 2.4 triples over that span. Rotoworld.com

      Marco Belinelli will draw the start against the Thunder on Thursday.

      Advice: Belinelli will replace Kyle Anderson in the Spurs' starting lineup as Kawhi Leonard (hand) remains out. Belinelli has averaged 12.0 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 0.7 steals, and 1.0 three-pointers as a starter, so makes for a decent plug-and-play option on Thursday. Rotoworld.com

    • Lance Stephenson (hip) ruled out for Friday
      Lance Stephenson (hip) will not play against the Thunder on Friday.

      Advice: He is not close to a return and coach Steve Clifford isn't exactly Lance's biggest fan. He is one of the least efficient players in the NBA and his defense has fallen off, too.

      Advice: He is still without a timetable and it's possible the Rockets may have had interest in Josh Smith because of the severity of Jones' leg injury. Regardless, the Smith signing has essentially put the kibosh on a breakout for Terrence Jones, so patience has not paid off for his fantasy owners. His ceiling is severely capped and he is a cut candidate in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Lance Stephenson is rumored to be coveted by the Denver Nuggets, but he still hopes to stay in Charlotte and make things right.

      Advice: Denver Coach Brian Shaw had a strong relationship with Stephenson when they were together in Indiana, so we could definitely see this report gaining some traction. However, the Hornets fear that they won't get enough in return for him at the moment, and there is no indication that a deal is in the works right now. Owners can only hope that Stephenson gets traded, as his fantasy value has plummeted in Charlotte. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Nick Young scores 15 points w/ rare full line
      Nick Young contributed across the board in Tuesday's upset win vs. Golden State, coming off the bench for 15 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

      Advice: He logged 30 minutes for the second straight game and should thrive whenever Kobe Bryant (rest) isn't in the Lakers' lineup, though he's been good enough to start under any circumstances. He has a total of 11 assists and 11 steals in 17 games this season, while shooting 41.5 percent from the field, so don't expect more than voluminous points (15.6) and 3-pointers (2.4). Rotoworld.com

    • Jeremy Lin plays well in Lakers win Tuesday
      Jeremy Lin had a solid game on Tuesday in a win over the Warriors, finishing with 11 points, five assists, one board, three steals and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

      Advice: Kobe Bryant was rested on Tuesday, so Lin got another chance to impress in extended minutes off of the bench. He has had a tough season in Los Angeles, but if the Lakers continue to fall behind in the Western Conference it wouldn't be surprising to see Lin's minutes trend upwards as Bryant's spiral down.

    • Paul Millsap fills up stat sheet in Hawks win
      Paul Millsap missed eight of his 12 field goal attempts on Tuesday, but still racked up 17 points, one 3-pointer, nine rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block.

      Advice: The Sapper was also 8-of-9 from the FT line and this versatile performance is familiar to his fantasy owners. Last season he was the only player to average at least 1.0 threes, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks per game. It's no surprise that this season he joins Danny Green and Draymond Green as the only players averaging at least 1.0 threes, 1.0 steals and 0.9 blocks. Rotoworld.com

    • Timofey Mozgov's scoring slump continues
      Timofey Mozgov's scoring slump continued on Tuesday with five points on 1-of-7 shooting, but he added eight rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 28 minutes vs. the Nets.

      Advice: Nuggets coach Brian Shaw has "repeatedly told players that they must put up now or the team is at risk for changes," and Mozgov's role isn't iron-clad with guys like J.J. Hickson and Jusuf Nurkic lurking on the bench. He's clinging to top-100 value in 9-cat leagues this season, in just 26 minutes per game, so there's enough upside to hang onto him despite his flagging offense. Rotoworld.com

    • Thaddeus Young shoots 6-of-18 in road loss
      Thaddeus Young scored 13 points on Tuesday, with six rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks, but he shot just 6-of-18 from the field in 32 minutes.

      Advice: Young's fantasy value has plummeted in Minnesota. On a year-to-year basis he's lagging in points (-3.8), 3-pointers (-0.8), FT percentage (-16 percent), rebounds (-1.6), and pretty much everything else. He can't get much worse than he's been through the Wolves' first 27 games, and has enough upside that his owners should strive to remain patient as he finds his sweet spot with a new team.

    • Mo Williams (personal) plays 22 minutes Tues.
      Mo Williams (personal) played 22 minutes off Minnesota's bench on Tuesday, finishing with six points, seven dimes, one steal and one block.

      Advice: The veteran PG is still bothered by a recent back injury, though at the moment he doesn't seem likely to sit out vs. the Nuggets on Friday. Whether or not he reclaims the starting PG job, Mo is worth a long look until Ricky Rubio (ankle) returns to action. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:57 pm
    • Tony Wroten has sprained knee, out Tuesday
      Tony Wroten has a sprained right knee, and will not play on Tuesday.

      Advice: This injury came out of nowhere, and it leaves the 76ers with just eight active players for their game vs. the Heat. We will pass along updates as soon as we know more, but given the cautious nature of the 76ers Wroten may see some additional time on the sidelines. K.J. McDaniels will see his role increased off of the bench and should be owned in most leagues for his upside. Rotoworld.com

    • Lance Stephenson (pelvic sprain) out Tuesday
      Lance Stephenson (pelvic sprain) will miss another game on Tuesday.

      Advice: The trade talk surrounding Stephenson has quieted down in recent days, and his value around the league continues to sink due to reports that he's already antagonizing Hornets' teammates off the court. This is his fourth straight DNP and he could return on Dec. 26, until which time there will be more opportunities for Gerald Henderson, Gary Neal and P.J. Hairston. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: This news comes as no surprise as Bosh had previously said he's targeting Miami's Christmas Day game against the Cavs. With Justin Hamilton (concussion) out Tuesday night, Chris Andersen and Udonis Haslem will both see increased minutes while providing limited fantasy value.

    • Timofey Mozgov gets just 15 minutes
      Timofey Mozgov needed four stitches to his face after being hit by Gerald Henderson and did return on Monday, playing just 15 minutes for two points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal.

      Advice: This game was over in the third quarter, so the Nuggets didn't play him in the fourth quarter. Mozgov should see minutes closer to 30 when the Nuggets are actually in games. Also, he just suffered a cut, so there's no need to worry about a concussion. Mozgov is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Timofey Mozgov (face) returns to game
      Timofey Mozgov went to the locker room due to excessive bleeding to his face on Monday and did return.

    • Landry Fields (concussion) out on Monday
      Landry Fields (concussion) will not play against the Bulls on Monday.

    • Mo Williams (personal) not at practice
      Mo Williams was not at practice due to a personal matter and will rejoin the team in Cleveland on Tuesday.

      Advice: It doesn't sound like he's going to miss the game. Williams bounced back in a big way on Sunday with 24 points in 32 minutes, so apparently the Wolves didn't learn their lesson last time. He is a risky, short-term player to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • John Henson (foot) still dealing with pain
      John Henson (foot) has been dealing with pain in his foot and visited a doctor on Monday.

      Advice: He is getting closer to a return, but the Bucks would be foolish to play him if he's still dealing with pain. Henson hasn't played much power forward this season, so he's not a very attractive pickup even with the Jabari Parker (knee) injury. Rotoworld.com

    • Terrence Jones still without a timetable
      Terrence Jones (leg) is still without a timetable to return.

      Advice: There has been very little information on Jones, but he has been going through some strengthening. He appears to be getting at least somewhat closer and has been out since Nov. 3. Obviously the nerve damage to his leg was worse than originally thought. The Rockets are believed to be interested in Josh Smith, which would hurt TJ's fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: In a Q&A with NBA.com's David Aldridge, Thomas admitted (among other things) he thought he'd see more playing time alongside Goran Dragic and Eric Bledsoe. It sounds like Thomas is still finding his way in Phoenix, but with Dragic entering free agency after the season, it may just be a temporary issue. Rotoworld.com

    • Isaiah Thomas says ankle not 100 percent
      Isaiah Thomas admitted that his ankle still isn't 100 percent healthy.

      Advice: "I'm not 100 percent," Thomas said. "There are still some movements that hurt, but I can tolerate the pain. I'm just trying to play my way back into being healthy and do the best I can." Thomas is still trying to find his rhythm after missing time, and although his production can be inconsistent with the three-headed point-guard machine, he needs to be deployed in all formats.

      Spencer Hawes (knee) is still out on Monday against the Spurs.

      Advice: Hawes' knee problem has not been detailed in great length, but he's been out for almost two weeks with very few updates in between. He's not worth owning in fantasy leagues, anyway. DeAndre Jordan is the only center on the Clippers with fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeremy Lin plays just 21 minutes off of bench
      Jeremy Lin played just 21 minutes off the bench on Sunday vs. the Kings, ending the game with four points, five assists and three boards.

      Advice: Coach Byron Scott is sticking to his plan of keeping Ronnie Price in the starting lineup for now, and Lin's value continues to plummet. Lin may redeem himself later on if the Lakers opt to rest Kobe Bryant down the stretch, but for now owners in standard leagues should look for another option. Rotoworld.com

    • Reggie Evans (knee) logs seven minutes Sunday
      Reggie Evans (knee) came off the Kings' bench for two points and four rebounds in seven minutes of action during Sunday's home win vs. the Lakers.

      Advice: Evans is tied for fourth in the NBA in rebound rate, hauling in 22.1 percent of all shots missed while he's on the court, which is lower than only Bismack Biyombo, DeMarcus Cousins and DeAndre Jordan. That rebounding prowess is the extent of Evans' fantasy appeal. Rotoworld.com

      Nick Young hit four 3-pointers in Sunday's loss to the Kings, which he finished with 26 points, five boards, one assist and two steals in 30 minutes.

      Advice: He was in danger of missing this game after his altercation with Steven Adams on Friday, so his owners have to be thrilled with this result. Swaggy P has been phenomenal all season, and with rumors going around that Kobe Bryant may be rested, Young's value is only going to get higher as the season progresses. Rotoworld.com

      Mo Williams torched the Pacers for 24 points and 10 assists in Sunday's road loss, making 10-of-16 shots with two 3-pointers, two rebounds and three turnovers.

      Advice: He did his damage in 32 minutes off the bench and should have a clear path to fantasy value until Ricky Rubio returns from his severely sprained ankle. With Rubio unable to practice and no clear return date in sight, owners should roll with Williams into the New Year. Rotoworld.com

      Anthony Davis dropped an impressive 38 points on 16-of-22 shooting in a win over the Thunder on Sunday, adding 12 boards, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 37 minutes.

      Advice: He feasted on Serge Ibaka the entire game, and the Thunder simply had no answer for him on either end of the court. Davis has been phenomenal this season, and if he can manage to stay healthy, he will continue to stake his claim as the No.1 option in fantasy basketball. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Bosh (calf) hopeful to play Christmas
      Chris Bosh said that he's hopeful to suit up for Miami's Christmas day game vs. the Cavs, but he also said that worst-case he'll be out another month.

      Advice: "It’s a possibility, I think," Bosh said of playing this week. "That’s me being a glass-half-full kind of guy. It’s a work in progress, man." Bosh is being pretty vague with his quotes, so all owners can do is hope that he's ready to go soon. He has made significant progress the past few days, but he still needs to work on his conditioning, as he still hasn't been able to run. Shawne Williams has slid into the starting lineup, but he can only be viewed as a 3-point specialist in deeper leagues for now. Rotoworld.com

      Landry Fields (concussion) is out for Sunday's game against the Knicks.

      According to league sources, Lance Stephenson is clashing with his teammates in the locker room, but coach Steve Clifford is hopeful that Charlotte's veterans will help Stephenson become more of a team player.

      Advice: This isn't surprising by any means, as Stephenson has been a major disappointment so far in Charlotte. However, it appears that the Hornets are no longer aggressively shopping him, as they feel like his value is too low to deal him right now. Unless Stephenson returns from his hip injury soon and starts to turn things around, he will be a really tough player to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Jared Dudley excelled against his former team on Saturday with 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

      Advice: That's back-to-back good games from Dudley and he's passed Khris Middleton as the waiver-wire add du jour. Dudley's done a fair amount of ball handling to go with his perimeter shooting, so there is enough upside to at least give him a look. That said, trusting coach Jason Kidd's rotation is like trusting a dingo to look after your baby. Rotoworld.com

      Timofey Mozgov played well in 36 minutes against the Pacers with six points, 15 boards and five blocks.

      Advice: This one was overdue. Mozgov had a season high in blocks and was one board shy of his season high. He was really struggling earlier this month, but nights like tonight serve as a reminder that he's still worth owning in standard leagues no matter how many times you've seen the video of Blake Griffin dunking on him.

      Rodney Stuckey was a disaster during one of the ugliest games of the year, making 1-of-10 from the field for four points, two rebounds, three assists and two turnovers.

      Advice: This was bad and Stuckey is known for his inefficient games. In fact, tonight was the 37th game of his career with a field goal percentage failing to crack 10.0 percent (with at least one attempt). This is what his owners will have to deal with, so adjust accordingly. Rotoworld.com

      Devin Harris played well of the bench against the Spurs on Saturday with 13 points, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

      Marco Belinelli scored a team-high 21 points against the Mavs on Saturday with three rebounds, two assists and five turnovers.

      Advice: He played 39 minutes in the starting lineup with the Spurs resting most of their wing guys. Belinelli has been good on the nights he gets heavy minutes, but the problem is that doesn't happen often enough. He'll have a big night again, so keep him in mind the next time the Spurs rest numerous players. Rotoworld.com

      Anthony Davis made 3-of-14 from the field against the Blazers on Saturday with seven points, six rebounds, one assist, one steal and five blocks in 28 minutes.

      Advice: He was actually held in check by Joel Freeland tonight and he had an up-close view of LaMarcus Aldridge hitting midrange jumpers all night. Davis didn't shoot below 33.3 percent from the field in any of his previous games, so this is obviously is worst offensive showing. He gets a date with Serge Ibaka on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

Belinelli is worth a look in deeper leagues for owners in need of 3-pointers, and will also be a decent plug-and-play option Saturday. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He played 32 minutes and didn't turn the ball over. The Suns have a handful of big runs while Thomas is on the floor and he has now played at least 26 minutes in four of his five games since returning from injury.

I lost my mind a little bit, checked into the crazy house."

      Jeremy Lin scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting with eight rebounds and five assists in 22 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: Lin didn't hit a three or record a steal or block but this is a reminder that he is capable of being a fantasy asset. He's going to be inconsistent and probably a late-round guy as long as he doesn't face-plant, but if Kobe Bryant ever decides this season isn't worth blowing out the odometer then Lin could get hot real quick.

      Advice: He is going to stay on the bench with Alexey Shved no longer on the team. Wroten will have a higher usage rate when he's not next to Michael Carter-Williams and should have solid dimes, as well.

      John Henson is questionable to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

      Advice: The Bucks need big men badly right now. Henson has played almost all of his minutes at center this season, but they might shift him back to power forward more of out necessity. He's worth a look, but the awful foul shooting will make him tough to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Spencer Hawes (knee) out Friday vs. Denver
      Spencer Hawes (knee) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Denver.

      Advice: Hawes has been out of the lineup since Dec. 12, and he remains without an official timetable to return. As long as DeAndre Jordan is healthy, he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Stephenson no longer on trading block
      The Hornets have reportedly pulled Lance Stephenson off the trading block as none of the offers they received were enticing enough to pull the trigger on a deal.

      Advice: The Hornets believe that Stephenson's groin injury has hindered him all season, and is the main culprit to his lack of production thus far. Charlotte feels that the injury affected Stephenson's movement and conditioning, and they would like to see him at full strength before sending him away for pennies on the dollar. While Stephenson may get traded away at some point this season, it is not likely to happen any time soon. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo Williams (back) a game-time decision Fri.
      Mo Williams (back) has been upgraded to a game-time decision for Friday's game vs. Boston.

      Advice: Williams got a second opinion on his back on Thursday, which confirmed that the issue he is dealing with is only muscular. However, if Williams is able to suit up, he won't be able to play much more than 12 minutes, which simply isn't enough time to contribute in a meaningful way to the stat sheet. With Ricky Rubio nearing a return, Williams can be left on the wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Bosh (calf) out Friday vs. Washington
      Chris Bosh (calf) will not play Friday vs. the Wizards, and remains without a timetable to return.

      Advice: Miami went with a starting frontcourt of Justin Hamilton and Chris Andersen during their last game with both Bosh and Josh McRoberts (knee) sidelined, but neither guy made a major impact on the boxscore. Andersen can be viewed as a shot-blocking specialist in deeper leagues, while Hamilton hasn't really been worth using. Shawne Williams and Udonis Haslem will see some increased opportunity, but both those guys have been struggling lately. Rotoworld.com

    • Lance Stephenson (hip) will not play Friday
      Lance Stephenson (hip) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the 76ers, and he's being listed as doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Jazz.

      Advice: This is just a reminder to get Stephenson out of your lineups. Gerald Henderson, Gary Neal, and Michael Kidd Gilchrist will all be asked to step up with Stephenson sidelined in a favorable matchup vs. the 76ers. MKG and Neal offer the most upside, but neither is a lock for production. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Dudley scores season-high 19 points
      Jared Dudley scored a season-high 19 points against the Kings on Thursday with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He had season highs in field goal attempts and free throw attempts in what was obviously his best game. Dudley has barely been shooting the rock while he's been out there and only had 0.8 triples per game in his previous eight games this month. This rotation is going to be a mess, so he's not a standard league target based on this game alone. Rotoworld.com

    • Zaza Pachulia starts and struggles
      Zaza Pachulia struggled in a start against the Kings on Thursday with seven points, five rebounds and two assists in 26 minutes.

      Advice: He got all the DeMarcus Cousins he could handle tonight. Pachulia will move back to the bench against the Clippers on Saturday and should see around 20 minutes as Larry Sanders' backup. He's not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Anthony Davis drops 30 and 14 with 5 blocks
      Anthony Davis went off against the Rockets on Thursday during a 99-90 win with 30 points, 14 boards, three assists, two steals and five blocks.

      Advice: He made 10-of-17 from the field, 10-of-12 from the line and only turned it over once. Davis already has eight 30-point games and raised his scoring to 24.8 points per game, ranking fourth in the NBA. The future is now for the best power forward in the NBA. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo Williams seeks second opinion on back
      Mo Williams was not present during Thursday's practice as he went to get a second opinion on his ailing back, and he is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

      Advice: Williams is currently on a minutes restriction with the Timberwolves, and is not worth owning in most leagues. Zach LaVine will continue to start as the only healthy point guard on the Wolves' roster, but with averages of just 10.8 points and 5.0 assists on 36.6 percent shooting from the field with the starting unit, he can only be considered an asset in deeper leagues.

    • Reggie Evans (knee, hip) out Thursday vs. MIL
      Reggie Evans (knee, hip) will not play Thursday vs. the Bucks.

      Advice: Evans suffered the injuries during Tuesday's game vs. OKC, and there is currently no timetable set for his return. With DeMarcus Cousins expected to return on Thursday, there's not much reason to hold onto Evans, and he can be cut in most leagues. Carl Landry and Derrick Williams will likely see some extended minutes, but neither makes for a great plug-and-play option. Rotoworld.com

    • Spencer Hawes downplays knee injury
      Spencer Hawes (knee) downplayed the seriousness of his injury to his left knee.

      Advice: There had been rumors of a more serious nature to Hawes' injury as he's still without a timetable, but Hawes downplayed those reports are greatly exaggerated. "I'm not out for the season," he told reporters on Wednesday. While Hawes may not be out for the season, he's not going to help fantasy owners much and can safely be left on the waiver wire.

    • Timofey Mozgov gets Dwight'd again
      Timofey Mozgov was shut down against the Rockets on Wednesday with one point, six rebounds and four fouls in 19 minutes.

      Advice: Foul trouble was a factor and Dwight Howard made him look pretty bad. He has hit a really bad rough patch lately, but both of those games came against the Rockets. Mozgov gets a date with the Clippers on Friday and hopefully he doesn't end up on a Blake Griffin highlight again. All these negatives aside, he's still worth owning in standard leagues.

    • Rodney Stuckey cools off against Clippers
      Rodney Stuckey, who torched the Lakers for 20 points, 10 rebounds and seven dimes on Monday, had just 12 points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal on 6-of-12 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.

      Advice: The Lakers are awful against opposing guards, so tonight's line is probably a more realistic expectation from Stuckey going forward. But as long as he's starting for the Pacers, he's worth owning in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Kendall Marshall might be in the rotation now
      Kendall Marshall played 17 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday with five points, three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He backed up Brandon Knight tonight and that will likely continue now that the Bucks need Jerryd Bayless to play more shooting guard. Marshall is not worth owning in most leagues, though. Rotoworld.com

    • Zaza Pachulia plays 26 minutes
      Zaza Pachulia played 26 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday with five points, eight rebounds, three assists and one turnover.

      Advice: He is sharing minutes at center and coach Jason Kidd is not using him at power forward these days. Perhaps one takeaway is the Bucks need Ersan Ilyasova (face) to come back. Pachulia is not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Dudley scores three points in start
      Jared Dudley scored three points in 27 minutes during a start against the Blazers on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, five assists and one steal.

      Advice: He committed four fouls and wasn't as involved in the offense nearly as much. Dudley's usage rate is extremely low, so he's not going to be asked to score much. His assists are fairly high for a guy with his role, but it's still not enough to move the needle enough to grab him in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Marc Gasol hits buzzer-beater, scores 26
      Marc Gasol hit a 3-pointer off the glass at the buzzer to send Wednesday's game to overtime, finishing with 26 points, nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 46 minutes.

      Advice: The Grizzlies pulled out a huge 117-116 win in triple overtime and are suddenly the hottest team in the NBA after back-to-back wins against the Warriors and the defending champs. As for Gasol, his knee injury is behind him as he makes a case for MVP. He's flirting with first-round value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Quincy Pondexter plays 23 minutes in start
      Quincy Pondexter played 23 minutes in start against the Spurs on Wednesday with four points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals.

      Advice: Pondexter had a solid preseason, but he's been quiet on the season. Vince Carter has found the fountain of youth off the bench, so Pondexter is going to have a tough time having fantasy value even with Tony Allen out. Rotoworld.com

    • Isaiah Thomas scores 23 points
      Isaiah Thomas scored 23 points off the bench against the Hornets on Wednesday with three rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

      Advice: The Suns went small with Markieff Morris being ejected and the Pizza Guy closed this one out. He's dominated the ball late in games and that even continued tonight next to Eric Bledsoe and Goran Dragic. Thomas is worth owning in standard leagues despite the inconsistent minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Dudley starting in place of Parker
      Jared Dudley will start in place of Jabari Parker on Wednesday.

      Advice: He replaced Jabari when the injury happened, so this move is not a surprise. Dudley also played 20 minutes in the second half on Monday, so he should see a nice increase in playing time. He's worth a look in standard leagues, but there's no need to be too aggressive. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Bosh (calf) out again on Wednesday
      Chris Bosh (calf) will not play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

      Advice: This is no surprise, as Bosh is considered out indefinitely and could miss several weeks. Josh McRoberts (knee) could be lost for the season, so it will be up to Justin Hamilton, Udonis Haslem, and Shawne Willimas to soak up extra playing time. Rotoworld.com

    • John Henson (foot) listed as out for Wed
      John Henson (foot) is listed as out for Wednesday's game vs. Portland.

      Advice: There is still no clear indication as to when he will be ready, but the Bucks could certainly use him now that Jabari Parker (knee) was ruled out for the remainder of the season. We will update Henson's status when we know more, but owners should keep an eye on him in deeper leagues for his ability to block shots and rebound. Rotoworld.com

    • Reggie Evans disappoints in start Tuesday
      Reggie Evans was disappointing in a start on Tuesday, playing just 19 minutes and finishing with four points, six boards, one assist and one block.

      Advice: He rightfully replaced Ryan Hollins in the starting lineup, but failed to impress in what was an off night for the rebounding machine. DeMarcus Cousins (illness) could be back as soon as Thursday, so there is no reason for Evans to be owned outside of the deepest of leagues. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
