    • Draymond Green turns in monster stat line
      Draymond Green was everywhere against the Raptors in 28 minutes during a 113-89 win on Friday with 17 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He made 6-of-9 from the field, hit both free throws and didn't turn the ball over for a nine-category line. Green is putting up elite value on the season, averaging 11.2 points, 8.1 boards 3.6 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 treys. Rotoworld.com

    • Amir Johnson scores eight off bench
      Amir Johnson moved to the bench against the Warriors on Friday with eight points, four rebounds and three assists and one turnover.

      Advice: He hasn't been playing well on offense, but he should still get close to 26.6 minutes per game. Johnson has put up some underwhelming numbers in February, averaging 7.7 points, 5.7 boards, 1.1 steals and 0.6 steals. He's not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyle Lowry scores four, gets hurt
      Kyle Lowry left the game in the first quarter and did return, finishing with four points, two rebounds and no assists in 19 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

      Advice: The injury doesn't sound serious and the Raptors were just a disaster tonight. In fact, they made just 1-of-19 from the field in the first quarter. Lowry should be fine for Saturday against the Knicks. Rotoworld.com

    • Crowder scores 14 points with four threes
      Jae Crowder scored 14 points on 5-of-11 shooting with six rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes.

      Advice: Crowder hit four 3-pointers and he's been hot against some bad teams. With a history of inconsistency he's a risky pickup but give him a look. Rotoworld.com

    • Lou Amundson erupts for 17 points, 14 boards
      Lou Amundson scored 17 points with 14 rebounds, two assists and three blocks during a 121-115 overtime win against the Pistons on Friday.

      Advice: The Knicks frontcourt dominated against the Pistons tonight. Amundson did score 14 points in his last game on Wednesday and seems like he could be a 10-8 guy for points and boards now. He's more of a player to own in deep leagues, though. Rotoworld.com

    • MKG double-doubles with 12 and 11
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 12 points on 6-of-12 shooting with 11 rebounds, three assists and one block in Friday's loss to the Celtics.

      Advice: MKG doesn't have a great stat-set for standard leagues and isn't worth picking up, but if you're in a points league give him a look. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 9:59 pm
    • Mo Williams scores 31 points with six threes
      Mo Williams hit 9-of-23 shots (including six threes) for 31 points, seven rebounds, four assists and one steal over 37 minutes on Friday against the Celtics.

      Advice: Williams has been a bountiful add not once but twice this season. Even when Kemba Walker in mid-March there should be enough food at the table for him to eat in Charlotte. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 9:49 pm
    • Henderson holds on with solid night
      Gerald Henderson scored 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block on Friday.

      Advice: Henderson has been a borderline value in 12-team standard leagues for the last week or so and one has to wonder how his numbers will hold up with Mo Williams around. If you want to ride him while he's moderately productive go for it, but there's not enough upside to call him a must-own player. Rotoworld.com

    • Cleanthony Early scores two in start
      Cleanthony Early scored two points in a start against the Pistons on Friday with two rebounds, one steal and one block.

      Advice: He only played 20 minutes and this was not an encouraging game for him. Early had high hopes at the first sign of Carmelo Anthony missing time back in 2014, but it's just not happening. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 9:45 pm
    • Reappearing Act: Andrea Bargnani scores 25
      Andrea Bargnani turned back the clock against the Pistons on Friday with 25 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

      Advice: He is clearly the first option for the Knicks on offense right now. Bargnani had a 26.9 usage rate tonight, which is a shade above his season 25.3 usage rate. Il Mago started tonight and is almost certainly going to stick. He is a tremendous injury risk and this big line tonight is unlikely to happen again, but he's worth a look in standard leagues. It's hard to believe for a guy who was possibly going to be cut. Take that, Masai Ujiri. Rotoworld.com

    • Andre Drummond goes for 21 points, 15 boards
      Andre Drummond scored 21 points with 15 boards, one assist and four blocks against the Knicks on Friday.

      Advice: Lou Amundson gave him the business tonight, so this big line is misleading from a reality standpoint. However, Drummond's numbers since the break are pretty good, averaging 18.5 points, 15.3 boards 1.5 blocks and 0.5 steals on 59.3 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from the line. He's finally rollin' on the stat sheet. Rotoworld.com

    • Hawks regulars all show up in win over Magic
      Paul Millsap scored 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting (including four threes) with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in the Hawks' 95-88 win over the Magic on Friday.

      Advice: Not only are the Hawks fun to watch but Mike Budenholzer is all about a nice, tight fantasy rotation. DeMarre Carroll added 15 points, three treys, eight boards, two assists and three steals, Al Horford went for 17 and 13 with four assists and two steals, Jeff Teague went for 17 and seven, and Kyle Korver hit 2-of-5 shots (all threes) for eight points, three boards, one steal and two blocks in the win. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 9:26 pm
    • Reggie Jackson has an abysmal game
      Reggie Jackson made 5-of-24 from the field against the Knicks on Friday for 16 points with five rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointers.

      Advice: This kind of line against the Knicks is inexcusable. Jackson hasn't quite hit his stride with his new team and is making just 33.3 percent from the field in his last three. Jackson is still a huge part of the offense and he's a good bet for several 20-7-7 kind of lines this season. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 9:23 pm
    • George Hill logs 1st triple-double of career
      George Hill logged the first triple-double of his career on Friday during a 93-86 win over the Cavs with 15 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, one block, two steals and two turnovers.

      Advice: Since Monday, there has been a triple-double every night this week. Hill has really stepped up with 7.0 assists per game in his last five, adding averages of 12.8 points, 4.2 boards, 1.4 assists and 1.4 treys. He's not shooting the ball well, but he is a must-start player right now. Plus, it's great to see his groin injury is behind him. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 9:06 pm
    • Harris back on track for fantasy owners
      Tobias Harris scored 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, two steals and one block in 37 minutes on Friday.

      Advice: Harris has two solid games under his belt and owners can use him like they normally would following his absence due to knee soreness. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 9:02 pm
    • Cleanthony Early starting for Friday
      Cleanthony Early will start on Friday against the Pistons.

      Advice: He's basically taking Jose Calderon (Achilles) spot with Langston Galloway sliding over to the point. Early has been a disaster this season, so fantasy owners can keep him on the wire in most leagues. We'll let you know how he fares tonight considering he has some upside. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 3:21 pm
    • Bargnani, Cleanthony Early starting on Friday
      Andrea Bargnani and Cleanthony Early will start on Friday night against the Pistons.

      Advice: Jason Smith will move that the bench. Bargnani had a 30.7 usage rate on Wednesday, so this isn't a big surprise. He has been the main weapon in the offense when he's on the floor, but he's still injured a lot and is not shooting the ball well this season. Since his return, Bargnani averaged 10.8 points, 4.8 boards and 1.0 blocks on 39.5 percent from the field. Add him at your own risk, but letting him be someone else's problem isn't a bad idea. Rotoworld.com

    • Draymond Green has five steals in loss Thurs.
      Draymond Green recorded five steals in Thursday's loss to the Cavaliers, finishing with 16 points, eight boards and four assists in 38 minutes.

      Advice: The five steals were one off his career-high of six which was set against the Wolves on Dec. 27, but this was actually just the fifth game this season in which he didn't record either a block or steal. Green has emerged as a fantasy stud for arguably the best team in the NBA, and he is going to be one of the most fun players to own for years to come. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:45 pm
    • Kyle Lowry says his current game is trash
      Kyle Lowry said that he thinks his current game is trash and that he's working to figure it out.

      Advice: When asked where he sees his game right now, Lowry said, "I'm trash. I'm trying to figure it out right now, to be honest with you." While his terminology might be a tad strong, Lowry is only averaging 12.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.6 three-pointers over his last five games (all below his season averages), so fantasy owners may want to attempt to buy low before he figures things out. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:32 am
    • Mo Williams gets hot in the second half
      Mo Williams scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half against the Bulls during a 98-86 win on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: His numbers look great in Charlotte, averaging 23.0 points, 7.5 dimes, 2.0 steals and 4.0 treys in his two previous starts. Williams is shaping up to be a must-start player in standard leagues until Kemba Walker (knee) returns next month. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:42 pm
    • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist drops 18 and 12
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had a superb showing against the Bulls on Wednesday with 18 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 42 minutes.

      Advice: He has really come on nicely in his three games since suffering a hamstring injury, averaging 17.7 points, 7.3 boards, 0.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.3 turnovers on 56.4 percent from the field and 75.0 percent from the line. However, Kidd-Gilchrist's fantasy value on the season is only 214 in standard leagues, so he will somehow have to keep this hot stretch going. He's not worth owning in standard leagues, but he's worth a look in points leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:38 pm
    • Jae Crowder scores 18 off Celtics bench
      Jae Crowder came off the bench for 18 points, six rebounds, four assists, a steal and three 3-pointers on 7-of-12 shooting Wednesday.

      Advice: Crowder is hot again, going for 18, 12 and 22 points in each of his last three games with at least six rebounds in each of them. He's also hit eight 3-pointers over his last three games, and is getting about 30 minutes a game as well. We'd like him better as a starter for the C's, but if you've had your eye on him, now looks like a good time to pounce. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:32 pm
    • Andrea Bargnani making some knoise in NY
      Andrea Bargnani played 25 minutes and hit 5-of-13 shots for 17 points, six rebound and two blocks in another Knicks loss.

      Advice: That's four straight games in double figures for Bargs, who also has five blocks over his last five games. He's no longer a threat from downtown, and is likely to get hurt any day now, but if you need a big man and want to take a flier on him, he might be able to stay relevant for a couple more weeks or so. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:14 pm
    • Still no update on Hawks-Mavs
      The NBA still is unsure if tonight's Mavs-Hawks game will go on as scheduled.

      Advice: It is up in the air and we'll be watching this one closely. There is only one game set to tip before the 7:30 EST start and we should absolutely have another update before 6:00 or so. Fantasy owners should plan on not having their Hawks and Mavs. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 12:13 pm
    • Cleanthony Early dealing with an ankle sprain
      Cleanthony Early is dealing with a new ankle sprain, leaving his status uncertain for Wednesday's game vs. Boston.

      Advice: Lance Thomas (groin) will not play on Wednesday night, meaning players such as Travis Wear, Quincy Acy and Tim Hardaway Jr. could be in the mix for big minutes vs. the Celtics. Early isn't a reliable option in deeper leagues even when he is healthy, so owners cans safely leave him on the wire. Check back closer to tip-off for the latest updates. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:36 am
    • Amir Johnson struggles in 19 minutes Tuesday
      Amir Johnson got into early foul trouble on Tuesday, finishing a 92-99 loss to the Thunder with only six points, six rebounds, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 19 minutes.

      Advice: The fouls didn't help his cause, but Johnson is averaging only 26.7 minutes and he's been fighting through a variety of nagging injuries all season. He's worth holding for help with rebounds, defensive stats and especially FG percentage, but nobody should be expecting a late-season surge from the Raptors' 10-year veteran. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:38 pm
    • Reggie Jackson racks up 22 pts, 8 reb, 9 ast
      Reggie Jackson filled up the boxscore during Tuesday's home loss, scoring a team-high 22 points with one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, nine assists and one block.

      Advice: R-Jax took a whopping 15 drives to the basket during his Pistons debut, according to NBA.com, and he finished 5-of-8 within 12 feet of the hoop tonight. He's being unleashed by coach Stan Van Gundy, a thrilling development for patient owners who watched him languish on OKC's bench prior to the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:32 pm
    • Tobias Harris will be ready for Weds vs Heat
      Magic head coach James Borrego said Tobias Harris (knee) felt good after Sunday's game against the 76ers and will be ready for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

      Advice: Harris struggled during his 25 minutes of playing time on Sunday, but Borrego's statement is great news for Tobias' fantasy owners. While Borrego may use a minutes limit for Harris in the short-term, he has enough upside to be a nightly start in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:12 am
    • Crowder gets hot with 12 points, seven boards
      Jae Crowder got hot with 12 points, seven boards, four threes, four assists and two steals in 29 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Suns.

      Advice: Crowder and Isaiah Thomas have a nice two-man game going with Crowder working the pick-and-pop. Teams are always going to pay more attention to Thomas and this could mean a lot of 3-point opportunities, but in a two-game sample it's possible the red hot numbers are an aberration The Suns and Lakers didn't exactly build a wall on defense in those games. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:38 pm
    • Lowry busts out of slump with 22 and five
      Kyle Lowry scored 22 points on 8-of-19 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds, five assists and three steals in Monday's loss to the Pelicans.

      Advice: Lowry had been in a small slump as the return of DeMar DeRozan was bound to shake things up, even if just temporarily. The buy low window shuts with this outing, if it existed in the first place. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:08 pm
    • Reggie Jackson felt like Thunder 'scapegoat'
      Reggie Jackson said that he felt like the "scapegoat" with the Thunder.

      Advice: "I wasn't always perfect, nor was the situation, but I became the brunt of the blame there," Jackson said. "Everything bad that happened, I was the scapegoat. I'm taking all this blame, and I'm wondering: 'How am I supposed to change it all here, make an impact, in eight minutes a game?' Jackson dramatized his exit out of OKC, and he's now under tremendous pressure to succeed as Stan Van Gundy's point guard, a responsibility that Jackson says he's always wanted. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 6:19 am
    • Jae Crowder ties season-high w/ 22 points
      Celtics SF Jae Crowder tied his season-high with 22 points during Sunday's overtime loss to the Lakers, making 8-of-14 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs in 30 minutes off Boston's bench.

      Advice: He grabbed seven rebounds and added one 3-pointer and one block to complete his best fantasy line since early January. Tonight's relatively gaudy line was the result of extended minutes in an OT game vs. a lousy defense, and Crowder is a dubious fantasy option despite Jared Sullinger's season-ending foot injury. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 9:45 pm
    • Gerald Henderson (wrist) held to four points
      Gerald Henderson played through a sore left wrist on Sunday vs. the Mavericks, finishing with only four points, three boards, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

      Advice: This is not the same wrist that Henderson had surgery on in May and it doesn't appear that he is danger of missing any action. He doesn't contribute much beyond the occasional scoring outburst and owners in standard leagues can almost certainly do better, especially now that Mo Williams has joined the Hornets' backcourt rotation. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 8:37 pm
    • Mo Williams stays hot, scores 22 in loss Sun.
      Mo Williams continued his stellar play with the Hornets in a loss to the Mavericks on Sunday, scoring 22 points with three assists, one board, three steals and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

      Advice: The Hornets clearly got a bargain in their trade with the Wolves, as Williams has been nothing short of incredible with his new team. He scored 24 points with 11 assists and five 3-pointers on Saturday, and with Kemba Walker set to miss at least a few more weeks, Williams is going to be a must-start player for the foreseeable future. Congrats are in order if you were able to snag him off the wire. As for Brian Roberts, it's safe to drop him in almost all leagues after he failed to score in just 14 minutes. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 8:07 pm
    • Tobias Harris (knee) struggles in 25 minutes
      Tobias Harris (knee) struggled in 25 minutes during his return on Sunday, posting four points on 2-of-6 shooting, one rebound, two assists and three turnovers in a start vs. the 76ers.

      Advice: He missed the past three games dating back to Feb. 9 and wasn't able to take advantage of the favorable matchup tonight. Interim coach James Borrego may be forced to limit Harris' minutes to keep him healthy down the stretch, but his top-50 upside is enough reason for fantasy owners to stay patient. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 6:04 pm
    • Draymond Green fouls out w/ six points Sunday
      The Warriors fell to the Pacers on Sunday, as Draymond Green fouled out with six points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, two assists and three blocks.

      Advice: Dray's shot was off but his across-the-board production is familiar to his fantasy owners, who have reveled in top-30 production all season. He's slipped a bit over the past month but remains a quality early-round value down the stretch, and he's on pace to join Shawn Marion and Robert Horry as the only players since 1946-47 to average at least 1.4 threes, 1.4 steals and 1.4 blocks per game. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 5:50 pm
    • George Hill shoots 4-of-13 in 30 minutes
      George Hill shot 4-of-13 from the field on Sunday, finishing a surprising win vs. the Warriors with 12 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes.

      Advice: Hill is shooting just 38.8 percent over his past five games and has yet to play more than 30 minutes in a game since returning from his groin injury on Jan. 23. The Pacers' caution is understandable and Hill is still providing fantasy value thanks to solid 3-pointers, assists and steals, in addition to low turnovers from the PG spot. He should only get better in the season's final eight weeks. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 5:50 pm
    • Reggie Jackson scores 17 pts in Pistons debut
      Reggie Jackson scored 17 points with five rebounds and five assists in his Pistons' debut on Sunday, making 7-of-18 shots with one 3-pointer in 30 minutes of action.

      Advice: He immediately started and is a must-own player now that he's locked in as a starter for Detroit. He hadn't taken more than 12 shots in a game since Dec. 31 and his stats will inevitably spike across the board, so get in your trade offers while you still can. Tonight's line could have been even better but Jackson was under the weather, even becoming ill on the sidelines during the game. R-Jax's starting job is bad news for reserve G Spencer Dinwiddie, who isn't worth holding in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 3:58 pm
    • Andre Drummond notches 31st double-double
      Andre Drummond piled up 18 points (8-of-11 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs) during Sunday's home win, adding 16 rebounds for his 31st double-double of the season.

      Advice: Drummond remains an early-round value if you're willing to ignore his 40.1 percent FT shooting. His rebound rate of 23.6 percent trails only Hassan Whiteside, his 13.0 boards per game trails only DeAndre Jordan, and he ranks sixth in the league with 95 blocks on the season. Not too shabby. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 3:52 pm
    • Andrea Bargnani logs season-high 28 minutes
      Andrea Bargnani logged a season-high 28 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Cavs, putting up 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting with five rebounds, three assists, one block and one turnover.

      Advice: Bargnani has missed his standard one-half of the regular season, so perhaps he can stay healthy for the Knicks' remaining 27 games. There's not a lot of upside here as he basically just scores inefficiently, but if you're in an extremely deep league and you're desperate for a center... well, we still wouldn't recommend adding him. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 3:40 pm
    • Gerald Henderson (wrist) will play Sunday
      Gerald Henderson is dealing with a sore wrist but he is planning to play against the Mavericks on Sunday.

      Advice: The Hornets would be forced to give more minutes to mercurial guard Lance Stephenson if Henderson ever has to miss any action, but it looks like they dodged a bullet here. Barring a late setback, Henderson should be ready to roll against the Mavericks. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 3:22 pm
    • ATL wins Sunday behind Paul Millsap's 23 & 15
      Paul Millsap blew up for 23 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in Sunday's road win vs. the Bucks.

      Advice: He made 10-of-20 field goals including one 3-pointer and his efforts helped the Hawks snap a rare two-game losing streak. Millsap has maintained top-20 value all season, which is exactly where fantasy owners hoped he'd be on draft day. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 3:12 pm
    • Tobias Harris (knee) to start Sunday vs. PHI
      Tobias Harris (knee) will draw the start for Sunday's game against the 76ers.

      Advice: Harris will return to action with a fantastic matchup against the Sixers, and he's certainly someone to consider for those playing daily leagues. His return to the starting lineup will send either Channing Frye or Evan Fournier back to the bench, and with averages of 17.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.1 three-pointers per game, Harris is a must-start guy every time he's in uniform. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 1:16 pm
    • Cleanthony Early benched on Sunday vs. Cavs
      Cleanthony Early will shift to the bench for Sunday's game vs. the Cavaliers with Lance Thomas set to replace him.

      Advice: In his first career start at small forward on Friday, Early scored just two points on 1-of-7 shooting so clearly the rookie still has a long way to go in his development. Early is more of a stash in deeper leagues in case he ever turns things around, while Thomas' game doesn't translate to fantasy very well. Owners in standard leagues shouldn't even concern themselves with this situation. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 8:34 am
    • Reggie Jackson will start Sunday vs. Wizards
      Reggie Jackson will be in the starting lineup against the Wizards on Sunday.

      Advice: Jackson is looking at a huge bump in his fantasy value since his move to Detroit, and he should be owned in all leagues moving forward. In 13 starts for the Thunder this season, Jackson averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 3-pointers per game, so his owners should be feeling pretty good right about now. Spencer Dinwiddie will shift to the bench on Sunday, and can now be dropped in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 7:46 am
    • Kyle Lowry has a horrible game in loss
      Kyle Lowry made 2-of-13 from the field for 11 points with one rebound, four assists and seven turnovers during a 98-76 loss on Saturday against the Rockets.

      Advice: Maybe the Pat Beverley factor is making a comeback, but Lowry is struggling these days. In his last five games, he averaged 11.2 points, 3.2 boards, 6.8 assists and 1.4 steals on 31.7 percent from the field. His numbers have plummeted since DeMar DeRozan returned, but there is still plenty of hope considering he broke out last year next to DD. Buy low if you can. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 9:52 pm
    • Amir Johnson doesn't score on Saturday
      Amir Johnson did not score on Saturday with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals.

      Advice: He only attempted two shots from the field and turned the ball over three times. Johnson's scoring numbers were up with three double-digit scoring games in his last four. Johnson isn't playing quite as well and owners in standard leagues can probably find someone with a higher upside like teammate and surname-mate James Johnson. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 9:43 pm
    • Gerald Henderson has a bad game
      Gerald Henderson made 2-of-10 from the field for six points with six rebounds and seven assists in 33 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

      Advice: He did have a lot of good looks, but they just weren't falling. Henderson has made just 28.6 percent from the field in his last four and has seen his fantasy appeal fall off even in points leagues and DFS -- Michael Kidd-Gilchrist returning doesn't help. Owners in standard leagues should almost never think about adding Henderson. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:43 pm
    • Kidd-Gilchrist steps up on Saturday
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist stepped up against the Thunder on Saturday, scoring a season-high 20 points with four rebounds and three steals.

      Advice: He spent a lot of time covering Russell Westbrook, so kudos to him for turning it up on the offensive end. Plus, this was also his first game since Feb. 7 due to a hamstring injury. As encouraging as this was, Kidd-Gilchrist just doesn't have the type of game to turn in fantasy value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo Williams thrives in first Charlotte start
      Mo Williams had an exceptional start to his Hornet career on Saturday, scoring 24 points with four rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

      Advice: Wow. He made the 1,000th 3-pointer of his career and he's likely going to make a heck of a lot more based on how he launched 10 attempts tonight. Williams is really a nice fit to help space the floor with Al Jefferson posting up and they really don't have a great shooter on the team right now. We still won't see Kemba Walker for a few more weeks, so Williams could be a top-50 guy until then. If you want help now, you almost have to add him after this one. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo Williams will start vs. the Thunder
      Mo Williams will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

      Advice: It's his first game with the team and he's already beat Brian Roberts for the starting job, which sums up how poorly Roberts played. Williams probably won't play more than 30 minutes tonight considering how often he's hurt. Plus, throwing him out there for more than 30 minutes against Russell Westbrook sounds like a cruel punishment. Williams is more of a scorer than Roberts, so expect slightly less scoring output from Gerald Henderson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will start on Saturday
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hamstring) will be in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Thunder.

      Advice: Jeff Taylor will move back to the bench following this news and be cut across the board. MKG missed the Hornet's last two games prior to the All-Star break, but there has been no indication that he will have any restrictions on his playing time. However, even though MKG can score and rebound well enough to matter in points formats, his inefficient shooting and lack of defensive stats makes him tough to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Coach SVG intends to keep Reggie Jackson
      Head coach Stan Van Gundy made it clear that Reggie Jackson will be his long-term answer at point guard for the Pistons.

      Advice: "We wouldn't have made the move we did if we didn't feel ready to make it a long-term commitment," Van Gundy said Friday. "There's no guarantees. He's a [restricted free agent]. We know we can keep him through next year no matter what he does, but we feel good about making a long-term commitment to him and hopefully he'll feel real comfortable making a long-term commitment here and we'll get it done." Jackson has an incredible opportunity to start and play big minutes for Detroit, and he shouldn't be floating around any waiver wires at this point. In 13 starts for the Thunder this season, Jackson averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 3-pointers per game, so his owners should prepare to be amazed. Rotoworld.com

    • Draymond Green steals three in win
      Draymond Green scored 11 points with six rebounds, four assists, three steals and three 3-pointers against the Spurs on Friday.

      Advice: While several Western Conference teams made some improvements in the trade market, none of them compare to the improvements made by Draymond. He's a huge difference maker in reality and in fantasy, averaging 10.0 points, 11.0 boards, 4.0 assists, 0.8 blocks, 1.6 steals and 1.2 treys in his last five. The Warriors wouldn't have the No. 1 seed in the NBA without Green and his fantasy owners are probably looking good in the standings too. Rotoworld.com

    • Andrea Bargnani scores 11 points
      Andrea Bargnani scored 11 points against the Heat on Friday with six rebounds and one assist in 24 minutes.

      Advice: Believe it or not, he hasn't been hurt for three games in a row. He is basically just putting up points on awful efficiency, so Il Mago doesn't really have any fantasy magic left. If you're in a 50-team league, give him a look. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:37 pm
    • Cleanthony Early plays like a second-rounder
      Cleanthony Early made his first start at small forward in his career on Friday against the Heat, playing 23 minutes for two points, one rebound, one assist and one steal on 1-of-7 from the field.

      Advice: Starting isn't his thing, apparently. In his only start at shooting guard, Early only scored six points on 2-of-9 from the field. He's made just 20 percent from the field in the last month and there are no other stats to suggest anything is coming. However, coach Derek Fisher sounds like he's going to play him. Just keep an eye on him in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:18 pm
    • Andre Drummond scores 18 with 20 boards
      Andre Drummond made 7-of-18 from the field and 4-of-13 from the line for 18 points against the Bulls on Friday with 20 boards, one assist and one steal.

      Advice: The Bulls did the Hack-A-Dre late in the game, which indicated how much better the Detroit offense looked, especially since they started a rookie point guard. As for Drummond, he didn't have great chemistry with D.J. Augustin, but Reggie Jackson will likely take a couple shots away from him. He'll be fine and maybe his field goal percentage can finally start going up -- it's at just 49.7 percent right now. Rotoworld.com

    • George Hill struggles against the 76ers
      George Hill cooled off against the 76ers on Friday with seven points, four rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 23 minutes.

      Advice: He had some serious momentum heading into the break, averaging 15.0 points, 2.8 boards, 6.0 dimes, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys on 50.0 percent from the field in his previous five games. Hill is going to play around 30 minutes most nights and we expect him to be better on Sunday against Golden State. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 8:51 pm
    • Late on Early: Cleanthony Early starting
      Cleanthony Early will start at small forward on Friday against the Heat.

      Advice: He'll join Jose Calderon, Langston Galloway, Jason Smith and Lou Amundson. Coach Derek Fisher said the hopes of starting Early will help him relax, so it sounds like it'll stick. Considering the struggles of Galloway and Tim Hardaway Jr., we might get a decent look at Early for a while. He's capable of putting up steals and treys, so owners in deeper leagues will want to watch him tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 2:56 pm
    • Tobias Harris (knee) ruled out vs. Pelicans
      Tobias Harris (right knee) will not play against the Pelicans on Friday.

      Advice: This is an about-face from yesterday and is troubling news. Harris missed the last two games before the break and history suggests he's been a slow healer, so he could be out beyond tonight. His owners have to bench him. Evan Fournier will start, but expect to see more production out of Nikola Vucevic and Victor Oladipo. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 2:20 pm
    • Reggie Jackson refused to play earlier in yr?
      Reggie Jackson was cleared to play on Nov. 1 following an ankle injury, but "refused to because of disappointment that he wasn’t traded before the Oct. 31 extension deadline," according to Royce Young of ESPN.com.

      Advice: Wow. It became clear that Jackson didn't want to be there based on Kevin Durant saying on Thursday that the team "felt like everybody wanted to be here except for one guy." Considering this information, general manager Sam Presti gets even more credit for getting back so much in the deal yesterday. As for Jackson, he's not playing tonight, but he should put up big numbers. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 2:12 pm
    • If he plays, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will start
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is expected to start against the Thunder on Saturday.

      Advice: We still don't have an official word that he's going to play, but he went through a full practice on Thursday. Jeff Taylor will move back to the bench and may not play at all while Gerald Henderson probably won't play quite as much. MKG is still not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 12:20 pm
    • Reggie Jackson, Tayshaun Prince out Friday
      Reggie Jackson and Tayshaun Prince have both officially been ruled out for Friday's game against the Bulls.

      Advice: It will be Spencer Dinwiddie starting at point guard, and Caron Butler at small forward for tonight's game, with Dinwiddie being the most intriguing plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Jackson, however, is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Wizards, so Dinwiddie's status as a starter will be short-lived. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:52 am
    • Reggie Jackson doubtful to play on Friday
      Reggie Jackson was not at the Pistons' shootaround, and he is doubtful for Friday's game against the Bulls.

      Advice: Spencer Dinwiddie has already been named as the starter for tonight's game, so it's safe to assume Jackson will be unavailable for this one. Stan Van Gundy did tell Jackson that he will be in the starting lineup on Sunday if he's cleared before tip-off, so owners will need to wait a couple days before they get to see a revitalized Jackson in Detroit. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:17 am
    • Tobias Harris (knee) questionable for Friday
      Tobias Harris (right knee) is now being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Pelicans.

      Advice: There was a report yesterday that Harris had been cleared to play, but it appears head coach James Borrego is going to be cautious with his asset. We’d consider Harris to be on the probable side of the questionable tag, but if he is forced to sit, Evan Fournier will likely get another game with the starting unit and he'd make for a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 6:54 am
    • Reggie Jackson slightly doubtful to play Fri?
      Team beat writer Keith Langlois said it would "be surprising" to see Reggie Jackson play on Friday against the Bulls.

      Advice: If that's the case, that means we will see John Lucas III and Spencer Dinwiddie handle the rock for the Pistons while trying to guard Derrick Rose. As for Jackson, he is going to dominate the ball. Jackson had a 27.3 usage rate when he wasn't playing next to Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, so he'll have a chance to score 20 per game with plenty of other stats. Those who stashed him hit the jackpot. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 5:29 pm
    • George Hill likely to play 28-32 minutes
      George Hill (groin) isn't on a minute-limit but coach Frank Vogel doesn't intend to play him more than 28-32 minutes per game.

      Advice: "[Hill's playing time] is unlimited, but we want to be smart," Vogel said. "I'll probably keep it around seven or eight minutes a quarter." That's enough run for Hill to maintain solid value in all formats and he's safe to keep active -- the conservative minutes may actually be a benefit for owners if it prevents Hill from suffering another setback.

      Thursday, 10:46 am
    • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist goes through practice
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hamstring) went through practice on Thursday and is expected to play on Saturday against the Thunder.

      Advice: The All-Star break came at the right time and MKG only needed two games to recover from a hamstring strain. He's made some improvements this season, but not doing anything besides score and rebound makes him someone fantasy owners in standard leagues can leave on the wire. Gerald Henderson and Jeff Taylor won't play as much. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 9:48 am
    • Tobias Harris cleared to play on Friday night
      Tobias Harris (knee) has been cleared to play on Friday against the Pelicans.

      Advice: He was monitored on Wednesday at practice and he should be able to play his normal playing time. Harris has been logging a whopping 41.0 minutes per game in February, averaging 22.5 points, 7.3 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys. He should have a big second half under his new coach. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:37 am
    • Andrea Bargnani will have to score more?
      Phil Jackson said the Knicks may need Andrea Bargnani to score more.

      Advice: Oh boy. Bargnani has been a disaster this season. He has a very high usage rate of 27.8 on the season, but he's only made 36.4 percent from the field and we all know about his "defense" recently. The Knicks are going to need all the help they can get, but fantasy owners can leave Bargnani on the wire due to his ineffective play and injury risk. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 12:25 pm
    • Michael Kidd-Gilchrst goes through practice
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hamstring) was able to participate in non-contact portions of practice on Wednesday, and if he makes it through contact practice on Thursday, he will be cleared to play against the Thunder on Saturday.

      Advice: He is averaging 10.2 points and 7.2 boards on the season, but his inefficient shooting and lack of defensive stats makes him tough to own in standard leagues. We will update MKG's status after practice on Thursday, but all signs point to him playing against Kevin Durant and the Thunder. Jeff Taylor will slide to the bench upon MKG's return to action, while Lance Stephenson should lose some minutes as well. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:54 am
    • Tobias Harris (knee) will practice on Wed.
      Tobias Harris (knee) has reportedly improved and will be monitored at Wednesday's practice.

      Advice: Harris missed the Magic's last two games prior to the All-Star break so he has been able to get some much needed rest for his ailing knee. The Magic will likely provide an update on Harris' status after the practice, so be sure to check back for updates. As of right now, Harris should be considered questionable to play against the Pelicans on Friday, while Evan Fournier would benefit the most if he misses any more action. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:05 am
    • Draymond Green would be interested in Detroit
      Draymond Green would be interested in pursuing an offer sheet with the Pistons when he becomes a restricted free agent this offseason.

      Advice: While Green does enjoy playing for Golden State, he grew up in Michigan, and played for Michigan State during his college years. There will be no shortage of teams looking to give Green a big contract following this year's breakout season, however given the Warriors success this season which can largely be attributed to the fantastic play of Green, it would seem likely the Warriors do whatever they can to retain him.
