  • Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) is making progress
    Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) is making significant progress and rode a stationary bike on Friday.

    Advice: If the progress continues, Jones could resume on-court activity as soon as Tuesday. This is great news to hear on Jones after suffering a very scary partially collapsed lung. Fantasy owners can probably keep him on the wire unless you have the luxury of stashing players right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Durant will have season-ending surgery
    Kevin Durant (foot) will have season-ending foot surgery and will be held out of basketball activities for 4-6 months.

    Advice: He is going to have a bone graft procedure because he is "showing signs of regression," according to the team. This will be his third surgery on his right foot and he's not a complete lock to be ready for training camp. If Durant needs six months to get back to basketball-related activity, he'll be looking at an October return. After five consecutive seasons of being the number one player in fantasy leagues, Durant's fantasy stock has plummeted more than almost anyone could have imagined. We hope we see the 2013-14 KD next season. Rotoworld.com

  • LaMarcus Aldridge is probable vs. Suns
    LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) is probable to play against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: He played on Wednesday and Aldridge is fully expected to play even in road game during a back-to-back set. Aldridge didn't have success against the Suns his last time out with a 19-point game on 38.9 percent shooting, so he should be much better tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Kaman (shoulder) set to play on Friday
    Chris Kaman (shoulder) is probable to play against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: He has been out since last week and the Blazers were able to get Joel Freeland some minutes. Kaman will likely be close to 15-20 minutes and is only an option in very deep leagues on a 13-game night. Rotoworld.com

  • Pistons could shut down Greg Monroe?
    Coach Stan Van Gundy is unsure if the team will shut down Greg Monroe (knee).

    Advice: "Well, I don't know about that," Van Gundy said when asked about a shutdown. "It all depends on how he is. I've never really shut anyone down. If he's ready to play, he's healthy and he gets clearance … if he's healthy, mentally, to play, we'd play him." SVG added the team is "nowhere near" the point of playing him yet, so Monroe is likely out through the weekend. He's a cut candidate in several formats. Anthony Tolliver will start in his place while several other Pistons will get more scoring chances. Rotoworld.com

  • DeJuan Blair (personal) will not play Friday
    DeJuan Blair is away from the team for personal reasons, and he will not play Friday vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Blair's role with the Wizards is negligible, so there aren't any fantasy implications with him out. He has no business being owned in any league. Rotoworld.com

  • Kris Humphries (groin) out Friday vs. CHA
    Kris Humphries (groin) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hornets, as expected.

    Advice: Kevin Seraphin and Drew Gooden will continue to split Humphries reserve minutes, but neither guy is worth owning in standard leagues. With no clear return date in site for Humphries, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Hill (tanking) ruled out for Friday
    Jordan Hill will be a healthy scratch for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: Hill has spent the past two games on the sidelines despite being perfectly healthy, so it appears head coach Byron Scott has fully embraced the tanking concept. Look for Ryan Kelly to start with Ed Davis seeing some extended minutes off the bench. Both Kelly and Davis have been playing well lately, so they're worth a look in deep leagues. Byron Scott said he may insert Hill back into the lineup for either Sunday's game vs. Brooklyn or Monday's game vs. Philadelphia, so we'll be watching for that. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill out Friday
    Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill will not play Friday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: With Boozer and Hill out, Tarik Black and Ryan Kelly will likely remain in the starting unit, with Ed Davis seeing extended minutes off the bench. All three guys can be viewed as low-end streamer options in deep leagues, with Davis and Kelly offering the most upside. Head coach Byron Scott said Hill and Boozer may return to the lineup for either Sunday's game vs. the Nets or Monday's game vs. the 76ers. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwight Howard to see around 20 minutes Friday
    Dwight Howard said he'll have his minutes limit increased to 20 for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: 20 minutes may actually be enough time for Howard to rack up some decent statistics against a weak Minnesota frontcourt, so he's someone to consider deploying as a low-end option in very deep leagues. However, the minutes limit, horrendous free throw shooting, and the fact he'll be sitting out of back-to-back sets makes Howard a tough guy to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Spoelstra says Chris Andersen unlikely Friday
    Updating a previous report, Erik Spoelstra said there is a slim chance that Chris Andersen (calf) is able to play Friday vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: This runs contrary to Andersen's comments that he thought he'd be able to play tonight, so we'll be watching this story closely. If Birdman is unable to go, it will leave Udonis Haslem as the only healthy big on the roster, and he'll more than likely be forced into heavy minutes. Haslem double-doubled through 38 minutes of action during his last outing, so he'll be worth a look as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues if Andersen is forced to sit. Stay tuned.

  • Donatas Motiejunas (back) misses shootaround
    Donatas Motiejunas (back) did not participate during shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Motiejunas isn't headed in the right direction after missing shootaround, so we're going to consider him closer to doubtful than questionable for tonight's game. If he's unable to go, Josh Smith would get all the run he can handle, and he'll be well worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Andersen (calf) says he'll play Friday
    Chris Andersen (calf) said that he will play Friday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: With Hassan Whiteside (hand) very unlikely to play tonight, the Heat could really use Andersen in the lineup. Birdman would have the opportunity to start if he is able to suit up, but with averages of just 8.0 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks with the starting unit, his value is limited to deeper leagues. Check back for an official update on Andersen closer to tip-off. Rotoworld.com

  • Nets sign F Earl Clark to 10-day contract
    The Nets have signed F Earl Clark to a 10-day contract.

    Advice: This move may have something to do with Thaddeus Young's recent knee injury, and Clark will give the Nets some much-needed depth at the power forward spot. That being said, he's unlikely to earn significant minutes right out the gate, so it's safe to leave Clark on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Spencer Hawes working hard w/ shooting coach
    Spencer Hawes has been putting in extra hours recently to work on his shot with shooting coach Bob Thate.

    Advice: Hawes is currently shooting a career-worst 39.7 percent from the field and 61.7 percent from the charity stripe, to go with unimpressive averages of 6.2 points and 3.8 rebounds per game. It's nice to know that he's working to improve his game, but playing in a reserve role behind DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin makes him a non-option in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Kelly more comfortable playing at PF
    Ryan Kelly stated during a recent interview that he's more comfortable playing at the power forward position.

    Advice: "I’m a little more comfortable there," Kelly said regarding the power forward spot. "I can get more involved offensively than I had been at times [playing small forward]." Kelly has started at the four-spot the past two games, putting in averages of 13.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 three-pointers, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 block per game. If he can continue to start at power forward, he'll be worth a look in deep leagues for owners seeking some 3-point shooting. Rotoworld.com

  • Mighty Healthy: Ghostface Ilya nets 34 points
    Ersan Ilyasova scored a career-high 34 points on 12-of-14 from the field against the Pacers during a 111-107 win on Thursday, adding six rebounds, two assists, two steals and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: He gets the fantasy equivalent of a Grammy for posting an effective field goal percentage of 103.6. Back in January, it was a winter war for Ghostface Ilya with his minutes per game at just 17.2. Now, he’s finally been consistent with at least 29 minutes in each of his previous five, averaging 17.0 points, 8.8 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 treys on 45.9 percent from the field. He's spitting hot fire right now and is a must-start player. Rotoworld.com

  • Khris Middleton scores 17 points on Thursday
    Khris Middleton scored 17 points with three rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: He’s been fantastic as a spot-up shooter all season, but he’s also been an above-average player in isolation. Middleton has seen his usage rate rise to 21.6 since the break, which is up from 18.4. What’s even more impressive is he’s logging 10 more minutes per game since the break — he now ranks first in total minutes played since the break. He’s emerged as an early-round guy in fantasy right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Jazz will sign Chris Johnson to a deal
    Jazz sign G/F Chris Johnson.

    Advice: The Bucks let him go today and the Jazz didn't hesitate to grab him. Considering Rodney Hood (illness) is still not well, Johnson may get some minutes. He'll compete with Elijah Millsap for playing time. Johnson is only worth a look in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:57 pm
  • Chris Johnson will not be retained by MIL
    Chris Johnson's second 10-day contract with the Bucks has expired, and the team has decided not to sign him for the remainder of the regular season.

    Advice: Head coach Jason Kidd said he believes Johnson will land a 10-day deal with the Jazz, so we'll be watching for that. However, he's going to have a very limited role wherever he winds up, and until he finds a new team, Johnson belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Andersen (calf) questionable for Friday
    Chris Andersen (calf) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: With Andersen questionable and Hassan Whiteside (hand) doubtful, Udonis Haslem could again be forced into heavy minutes Friday, with Luol Deng spending some time at the four-spot. Haslem would be worth a look as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues if both Andersen and Whiteside are unavailable. Rotoworld.com

  • Kris Humphries (groin) doesn't practice Thurs
    Kris Humphries (groin) was unable to practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Humphries was spotted going through a lot of individual work on Thursday, but his absence from practice would suggest he's doubtful for Friday's game vs. Charlotte. If he's unable to go, Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin will continue to split his reserve minutes. Seraphin can be viewed as a shot-blocking specialist in extremely deep leagues, while Humphries belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) will not play Fri
    Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Jones remains without a clear timetable to return, and at this point in the fantasy season, he belongs on the waiver wire in all re-draft leagues. With Donatas Motiejunas (back) being listed as questionable, Josh Smith could be in line for a healthy heaping of minutes Friday. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwight Howard (knee) probable Friday vs. MIN
    Dwight Howard (knee) is being listed as probable for Friday's game against Minnesota.

    Advice: There's no reason to think that Dwight won't play Friday after he returned from a two-month absence on Wednesday without experiencing any setbacks. He will however be with a minutes limit, so he's by no means a must-own guy in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:44 am
  • Donatas Motiejunas (back) questionable Friday
    Donatas Motiejunas (lower back pain) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: If Motiejunas is unable to go on Friday, Josh Smith would likely slide into the starting lineup, and he'd get all the run he can handle as the only healthy power forward on the roster. He'd draw a very favorable matchup against the Wolves, so Smith would be worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues if Motiejunas is forced to sit. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Cody Zeller questionable for Friday vs Wizard
    Cody Zeller (shoulder) is questionable for Friday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: If Zeller is unable to play on Friday, he will have missed eight out of the Hornets' last nine games and can safely be dropped in most fantasy formats. We'll update his status after Friday's shootaround, but Marvin Williams stands to benefit the most if Zeller is unable to play. Rotoworld.com

  • Greg Monroe misses Thursday practice
    Greg Monroe (knee) was unable to practice on Thursday.

    Advice: The Pistons don't have much motivation to rush Monroe back at this point, so this news may not bode well for his chances to play against the Magic on Friday. We'll update this situation after shootaround on Friday, but Anthony Tolliver would likely again pick up the start if Monroe is unable to suit up. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Hill not sweating minutes decrease
    Jordan Hill said he has no issues with the Lakers decision to sit him for the next four or five upcoming games.

    Advice: While the Lakers openly tank, Hill is toeing the company line when it comes to his benching. "I’m not playing for nothing," Hill said. "It’s a good time to get other guys a lot more minutes and get a feel of the game." Hill can be dropped while the Lakers experiment with younger players and Ryan Kelly, Ed Davis, and Tarik Black are all worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandan Wright still getting some burn
    Brandan Wright played 28 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday with five points, seven boards, one assist and one block.

    Advice: He played next to Alex Len for a bit, but coach Jeff Hornacek dropped a minor hint that he could get crazy with his matchups because of Rudy Gay playing at the four. Thanks to his blocks, boards and field goal percentage, Wright is still a hold in standard leagues with minutes in the mid-to-upper 20s. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Morris scores 19 points vs. Kings
    Marcus Morris scored 19 points with three rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers on 7-of-11 from the field against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Perhaps he's earned more playing time now that he's playing well, averaging 13.8 points, 8.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 1.6 treys on 48.3 percent from the field in his last five. Brandon Knight could be back soon, so Morris owners might want to start planning for his value to dip. Rotoworld.com

  • Rudy Gay scores 14 in 29 minutes
    Rudy Gay scored 14 points with four rebounds, five assists and one steal in 29 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was on the injury report with his patella tendon issue, but that's probably not the reason why his playing time was low. Gay will be on the injury report going forward, but it's nothing to worry about as long as he's probable. Rotoworld.com

  • LaMarcus Aldridge looks good in return
    LaMarcus Aldridge returned from a finger injury on Wednesday and had 19 points, nine rebounds and a block on 7-of-18 shooting.

    Advice: Not bad at all, especially considering that owners of Nicolas Batum were tortured by seeing him in street clothes. Aldridge said after the game that his hand is still in pain, but not enough that it will prevent him from playing. Aldridge has truly been a warrior this season, playing through injury after injury.

    Donatas Motiejunas scored 21 points with eight rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer on 10-of-16 from the field in 37 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Advice: With Dwight Howard still on a minutes limit, Donuts was still able to eat. He should have another couple weeks of solid fantasy value in standard formats. It's also worth noting he played much more than Josh Smith (24 minutes) tonight. Start Motiejunas on Friday against the Wolves. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwight Howard plays 16 minutes in return
    Dwight Howard returned from a two-month absence during a win against the Pelicans on Wednesday, playing 16 minutes for four points, seven rebounds, two assists and one block.

    Advice: He was playing four-minute stints and also committed four fouls. Howard is not expected to play in back-to-back sets and should have a minutes cap for a few more games. He's not a must-own player due to his awful foul shooting and upcoming DNPs. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Kelly goes for 11 & 8 in start
    Ryan Kelly had 11 points, eight rebounds, a steal and a block on 4-of-13 shooting in Wednesday's overtime win against the Wolves.

    Advice: The Lakers have benched both Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer as the tank-train gets cranked up, but Jordan Clarkson hit a couple free throws in the clutch to get the Lakers a disappointing win. Kelly, Ed Davis and Tarik Black are all worth a look right now as the Lakers should continue to sit Hill and Boozer as long as they can get away with it. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Bass falls flat vs. Heat
    Brandon Bass hit just 3-of-6 shots for nine points, five rebounds, two steals and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.

    Advice: The Heat held a 17-point halftime lead and coach Brad Stevens seemed to be grasping for straws in hopes of getting back in the game. Eleven players saw meaningful minutes for Boston, while even Gerald Wallace came off the bench and played four minutes. With that many hands in the cookie jar, the Celtics are a potential headache for fantasy owners going forward. The Celtics are in a dogfight for the playoffs with Indy, Brooklyn and Charlotte, and fell a full two games behind the Heat with tonight's loss. Rotoworld.com

    LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) will start against the Jazz on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He only needed one game on the sidelines after saying he was going to take his time coming back. This is a very important game for the Blazers against one of the better teams since the break. The Jazz have shut down a slew of power forward, but it'll be interesting to see how LMA does given his different style of play. He's obviously worth starting in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Boozer not expected to play on Wed
    Carlos Boozer (tanking) is expected to sit out of Wednesday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Jordan Hill also won't play, but both players will still dress and will be on the bench for emergency purposes. Ryan Kelly and Tarik Black will draw the start again, but they are both only options in deeper leagues. Ed Davis and Robert Sacre will also be in the frontcourt rotation, but Davis is the only one worth a look for his upside in blocks. Just to clarify, Boozer or Hill are not expected to play for at least a few more games, and the Lakers will do everything they can to strengthen their chances of a high pick in this year's draft.

    Advice: He doesn't have a timetable to return and could miss the rest of the regular season. With Dwight Howard already back and ready to play tonight, Jones seems like a player almost all fantasy owners should cut at this time.

    Advice: The overwhelming majority of the time this would be a non-issue with the Kings listing a player as probable. Usually, the team won't even update their "probable" players until they announce the starting lineup minutes before a game. However, there's some added risk here with the road game on a back-to-back set. We're still fully expecting Gay to play. Rotoworld.com

    LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) and Nicolas Batum (back) are questionable to play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

    Advice: There is an improvement here with the pair being listed as doubtful for Tuesday. Aldridge did not play in that game and he's also said he's not looking to rush back, but he certainly could come back tonight or Friday. His fantasy owners shouldn't be too optimistic for his status in a late game. Dorell Wright started on Tuesday, but coach Terry Stotts might play the matchup against Derrick Favors and go with Meyers Leonard in the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com

    Chris Kaman (shoulder) will not play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

We will know more closer to tip-off, but Humprhies still belongs on the wire in most leagues.

  • Dwight Howard (knee) will start Wednesday
    Dwight Howard (knee) will be in the starting lineup on Wednesday vs. the Pelicans according to head coach Kevin McHale, but he will be on a minutes limit.

    Advice: Howard won't see any more than 16 minutes tonight, but after spending the past two months in street clothes, his owners will just be glad to have him back. His owners will probably want to keep Howard on the bench until he gets his legs under him, but he should be able to provide plenty of points, boards and blocks in the near future. Joey Dorsey will return to the bench and shouldn't have been owned in most leagues anyway. We will let you know how Superman's knee holds up after the game. Rotoworld.com

    Chris Andersen (left calf) is questionable to play vs. the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Advice: The injuries are piling up across the NBA, and the Heat have arguably had some of the toughest luck in the league. Hassan Whiteside (hand) is considered doubtful, meaning Udonis Haslem and Michael Beasley may be forced to play big minutes tonight. Rotoworld.com

    Cody Zeller (shoulder) will not be able to play vs. the Nets on Wednesday.

    Advice: His shoulder is clearly an issue, and he probably rushed his return to action the first time. Consider him day-to-day moving forward, and we will update his status once we know more. With fantasy playoffs in progress, Zeller's owners should move on. Marvin Williams will benefit the most with Zeller in street clothes, and he is worth a look for anyone needing 3-pointers.

  • Rudy Gay's 21 pts help Kings fend off Sixers
    Rudy Gay struggled offensively on Tuesday, making 6-of-19 field goals, but he still finished with 21 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks.

    Advice: Gay is owed a guaranteed $25.7 million over the next two seasons, with a $14.3 million player option in 2017-18, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Kings eventually scale back his playing time in the final few weeks of the season. He logged 41 minutes tonight, however, and has been a dominant fantasy force over the past few weeks with averages of 26.4 points, 1.4 threes, 5.4 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.6 blocks, all with solid percentages.

  • Ryan Kelly scores 16 points in start at PF
    Ryan Kelly played 29 minutes in a start at PF on Tuesday, finishing with 16 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

    Advice: He didn't turn the ball over and this was one of his better outings of the season. Lakers coach Paul Pressey, filling in for Byron Scott, once again spread minutes thin and evenly throughout his first and second units, and Kelly's starting job isn't likely to result in reliable fantasy production. We'll let you know if he plays well enough to warrant your attention. Rotoworld.com

  • Ersan Ilyasova fills up stat sheet vs. Miami
    Ersan Ilyasova filled up the stat sheet on Tuesday with 19 points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal, three blocks and only one turnover in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Two of his makes came from beyond the arc, and four of his rebounds came on the offensive end, as he helped propel the Bucks to a stunning 89-88 comeback win in the fourth quarter. Ilyasova has been maddening to own if you drafted him this season, but he's finally settled into reliable mid-round value for the fantasy playoffs. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Hill likely to sit out next 4-5 games
    Jordan Hill (tanking) will likely sit out for the next four to five games so that the Lakers can evaluate their younger players.

    Advice: Unreal. The tanking saga continues around the NBA, and this move will certainly draw some harsh criticism from around the league. Hill has been one of the better plays for the Lakers this season with averages of 12.3 points and 8.0 boards per game, so it will be interesting to see how he reacts to this. For what it's worth, Carlos Boozer will also sit out with Hill, meaning Ryan Kelly, Tarik Black, Ed Davis and Robert Sacre will handle the frontcourt duties for the Lakers until further notice. With fantasy playoffs in progress, Hill's owners should cut bait. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Boozer taken out of Lakers' rotation
    Carlos Boozer did not play vs. the Thunder on Tuesday and the Lakers' coaching staff told him that he's unlikely to play for the next "four or five games."

    Advice: Boozer has been a net negative player both offensively and defensively this season, per Basketball Reference, but his inactivity is another signal that the Lakers are ready to tank in earnest over their final 12 games. Boozer is not a viable fantasy option, even if he does claw his way back into the rotation. His absence opens up more minutes for Ryan Kelly, Tarik Black, Ed Davis and Robert Sacre, but only Davis is a worth owning in standard leagues Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Kaman (shoulder) will not play Tues
    Chris Kaman (shoulder) will not play vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Blazers will probably err on the side of caution with Kaman moving forward in an effort to keep him fresh for the playoffs, so we wouldn't expect him to play unless he is 100 percent. The Blazers play again on Wednesday vs. the Jazz, so Kaman should be considered doubtful for that one as well. With LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) also out of the lineup, expect Joel Freeland and Meyers Leonard to see an uptick in minutes, though neither player is very appealing in most leagues right now.

  • LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Batum out Tuesday
    LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) and Nicolas Batum (back) will not play vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, and Alonzo Gee and Dorell Wright will shift into the starting lineup.

    Advice: Aldridge is dealing with some swelling and wasn't able to move his hand properly after leaving Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies. He also recently said that he won't rush back from injury, so he should be considered doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz. With Kaman and Batum also out tonight, Joel Freeland, Dorell Wright and Meyers Leonard should get plenty of opportunities in the frontcourt, while Alonzo Gee and C.J. McCollum could be in line for more minutes on the wing. However, this is the Blazers we are talking about, so nothing is off the table at this point. Rotoworld.com

  • Aldridge, Batum, Kaman still doubtful Tuesday
    LaMarcus Aldridge (finger), Nicolas Batum (back) and Chris Kaman (shoulder) will all "most likely" not play on Tuesday, according to Terry Stotts.

    Advice: All three guys are listed as doubtful to face the Warriors and fantasy owners should prepare to be without them. Meyers Leonard gains the most if Aldridge is forced to sit out, with Joel Freeland and Dorell Wright also helping to fill the void at PF. None of them are appetizing fantasy players, however, especially in a tough matchup with Golden State. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Hill, Carlos Boozer may not play Tues
    Jordan Hill (tanking) and Carlos Boozer (tanking) may not be in the rotation vs. the Thunder on Tuesday according to Lakers beat writer Mike Trudell.

    Advice: Ryan Kelly and Tarik Black are starting in the frontcourt, so winning clearly isn't a priority tonight. The Lakers are going to get their younger guys some more playing time down the stretch, so Hill and Boozer's value will likely start to trend down. We will continue to monitor this story closely, but owners will want to see how things play out tonight before doing anything drastic. Rotoworld.com

Andre Drummond on the other hand has been a monster, averaging 14.3 points, 15.3 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 2.8 blocks over the past four games while logging heavy minutes, and he appears to be the primary beneficiary sans Monroe.

    Advice: All signs are pointing towards Dwight returning to action on Wednesday, and we'll be monitoring this situation closely. He will, however, more than likely have a minutes cap, so owners should not be expected a 20-20 game when he returns to the floor after spending the past two months on the sidelines. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwight Howard (knee) could return Wednesday
    Rockets' head coach Kevin McHale said he plans to play Dwight Howard (knee) Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Howard said he felt good following Tuesday's practice, and he will talk with the Rockets' medical staff tomorrow to determine his availability. Howard will likely return to the starting lineup, which would send Joey Dorsey back to the bench, and he could cut into the production of Josh Smith and Donatas Motiejunas. Dwight will more than likely have a minutes cap, so his upside is going to be limited, at least initially. Rotoworld.com

    Donatas Motiejunas scored 17 points with two rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer on 6-of-9 from the field in 38 minutes against the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: He is going to be a bigger part of the offense until Dwight Howard (knee) gets back, which could be as soon as Wednesday. Motiejunas should still be able to put up decent value in standard leagues because Dwight will be limited and is not expected to play in both games on a back-to-back set. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The good news is that this isn't another thumb injury for Aldridge. He is still not going to be in a rush to return to the lineup and his owners in weekly leagues should be expecting him to miss at least one game. With LMA out, it'll be Dorell Wright, Meyers Leonard and Joel Freeland filling in at power forward. C.J. McCollum may also be asked to help Damian Lillard with the scoring. Rotoworld.com

    Chris Kaman (shoulder) is doubtful to play against the Warriors on Tuesday.

    LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) did not practice on Monday and is doubtful to play on Tuesday against the Warriors.

Aldridge was replaced by Meyers Leonard to start the second half on Saturday, but Leonard didn't score vs. the Grizzlies. With LMA out, it was Leonard, Dorell Wright and Joel Freeland picking up minutes at power forward. Wright looks like the most attractive option right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Ryan Kelly may start next to Tarik Black
    Ryan Kelly could start next to Tarik Black against the Thunder on Tuesday.

    Jordan Hill made 6-of-7 shots vs. the Sixers on Sunday, finishing L.A.'s home victory with 12 points, eight rebounds and three assists in only 20 minutes.

    Advice: Hill was a combined 10-of-31 from the field in his three previous games, so it's nice to see him get going offensively vs. a Sixers defense which has been surprisingly stingy in recent weeks. Hill is a reliable late-round value but he lacks explosive upside while logging 25-28 minutes for coach Byron Scott.

    Advice: Brandon Knight (ankle) has a chance to return from injury on Wednesday vs. the Kings, but Morris has shown what he can do with extended minutes. Morris has posted averages of 13.6 points, 8.8 boards, 3.8 assists and 1.6 3-pointers over his last five games, and he certainly gave head coach Jeff Hornacek something to think about after this performance.

    Advice: Ily has finally hit his rhythm after being flat out horrible to begin the season.

With Kaman out for most of Friday, coach Terry Stotts went with a combination of C.J. McCollum and Meyers Leonard to fill in.

    Terrence Jones (ribs) will not play on Saturday, and he will also miss at least the following two games for the Rockets as expected.

    Advice: Jones was one of the hottest players in the league since the All-Star break, so it's a shame to see him go down right as fantasy playoffs are starting to heat up. Given this timetable, the earliest we would see Jones back on the court would be on Mar. 27 vs. the Wolves, but we should have another update early next week. Unless you can comfortably advance in playoffs without him, Jones is no longer a must-own player. Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith will serve as the primary beneficiaries in Jones' absence.

  • Dwight Howard, Terrence Jones out Saturday
    Dwight Howard (knee) and Terrence Jones (pneumothorax) will not play on Saturday vs. the Suns as expected.

    Advice: Howard didn't practice on Friday but he reportedly has a chance to return next week, so we will be sure to track his progress closely. Until Howard or Jones is able to return, Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith will be very busy, while Joey Dorsey will remain in the rotation as well. Rotoworld.com

  • Gay shoulders the load in Kings win over CHA
    Rudy Gay scored 33 points on 11-of-20 shooting (2-of-5 3PTs, 9-of-10 FTs) with nine rebounds, four assists and two steals in the Kings' 101-91 win over the Hornets on Friday.

    Advice: It's strange to say but with DeMarcus Cousins on a strange absence the Kings have just one real fantasy asset. With the way things are going down with front office drama in Sacramento, owners have to be on guard with both Gay and Cousins. Rotoworld.com

  • Khris Middleton plays 55 minutes in 3OT loss
    Khris Middleton played 55 minutes against the Nets during Friday's 129-127 loss, scoring 29 points with eight rebounds, six assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: This game was just ridiculous and the Bucks pulled down 81 rebounds. Middleton continues to be a big part of the offense and he should get even more looks because any shot Michael Carter-Williams takes is usually not optimal. Middleton is going to be paid big bucks this offseason. Rotoworld.com

  • Ersan Ilyasova puts up big line vs. Nets
    Ersan Ilyasova scored 20 points with 13 boards, one assist, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 43 minutes.

    Advice: If 2014-15 games were albums for Ghostface Ilya, this one would be Supreme Clientele and Ironman combined. Hip-hop references aside, Ilyasova is playing 34 minutes per game over his last five, averaging 16.6 points, 8.4 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.4 treys. He's a must-own player. Rotoworld.com

  • Cody Zeller expected to play on Friday
    Cody Zeller (shoulder) is expected to play against the Kings on Friday night.

    Advice: He went through shootaround and should return after missing the last four games. Jason Maxiell has soaked up most of his minutes while Marvin Williams has really stepped up. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist also saw some better production because of Zeller being out. Williams' fantasy owners can expect him to see a dip in output tonight. Zeller was playing well before his injury, so keep an eye on him. Rotoworld.com

  • Terrence Jones out for at least three games
    Terrence Jones (pneumothorax) will miss the next three games due to a partially collapsed lung.

    Advice: He needed to go to the hospital on Thursday night and hopefully he can put this issue behind him soon. The good news is that he didn't crack his rib and the Rockets not ruling him out indefinitely is sort of a good sign. At this point, it's possible we'll see Dwight Howard (knee) return to the court before Jones, so Jones' fantasy owners should strongly consider cutting him. Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith will get more chances to put up numbers while Joey Dorsey starts until Dwight gets back. Dorsey is not a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com

  • Greg Monroe (knee) doubtful for the weekend
    Greg Monroe (knee) is doubtful to play Saturday vs. Chicago, as well as Sunday vs. Boston.

    Advice: This is very unfortunate news for owners of Monroe, and with him sidelined, Anthony Tolliver will likely stick with the starting unit. Through two games as a starter this season, Tolliver has put in averages of 12.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 3.0 three-pointers per game, so he's worth a look as a streamer option for those seeking some 3-point shooting. Jodie Meeks will also see some increased opportunity on offense with Monroe out. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Durant (foot) will be out indefinitely
    Thunder GM Sam Presti held a press conference on Friday in which he announced that Kevin Durant will be "removed from all basketball activities" and he will be "out indefinitely."

    Advice: Durant, a guy who has been remarkably healthy throughout his career, has missed 45 games and counting this season. Presti said that until Durant is able to return to the floor without experiencing soreness, he will remain sidelined, and acknowledged that a shutdown is the current direction that OKC is headed. "If that takes the rest of the regular season, if that takes the rest of the playoffs, that’s what it takes," said Presti. If your team is fighting to make it through the first round of the fantasy playoffs, it makes sense to drop Durant at this point in all re-draft leagues. With Serge Ibaka (knee) and Durant out, Russell Westbrook is going to be an absolute monster. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Hill scores four points in a loss
    Jordan Hill scored four points in an 80-73 loss to the Jazz on Thursday with 10 rebounds, one block and two steals in 28 minutes.

    Advice: The minutes are there for Hill right now, but he's made a combined 10-of-31 (32.3 percent) from the field in his last three games. Hill does have some decent production in the other categories with at least nine rebounds in each of his last four, so he's a decent guy to own. The Lakers have a 4-4-4 schedule in the last three full weeks of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Wright On: Brandan blocks seven, scores 16
    Brandan Wright brought it on both ends of the floor during a 74-72 win over the Pelicans on Thursday, scoring 16 points with eight rebounds and seven blocks on 8-of-10 from the field in 38 minutes.

    Advice: For years we've been wondering what it would look like for Wright to be unleashed and he's surpassing almost all expectations. He put up an 18-11 line on Sunday and has made it obvious he'll deserve more playing time even when Alex Len (ankle) gets back. Considering how much of a monster he's been, fantasy owners have to pick him up in most leagues even with Len getting closer. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Morris has an awful shooting game
    Marcus Morris made 1-of-11 from the field for two points with 13 rebounds, four assists and no turnovers in 40 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

    Advice: To make matters worse, Morris missed both attempts from the line to give him a true shooting percentage of 8.4. March has been a fiasco for his shooting, making just 33.3 percent from the field, which is even worse considering he's making 75.0 percent of his shots at the rim in that span. Awful shooting aside, Morris is still worth owning in standard leagues until Brandon Knight (ankle) gets back. Rotoworld.com

  • Donatas Motiejunas plays 37 minutes
    Donatas Motiejunas made 3-of-10 from the field for seven points with nine rebounds, four assists and three steals in 37 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    Advice: With Terrence Jones (rib) going down, Donuts is going to get a lot of run. Although, he hasn't played well in his last five, averaging 12.4 points, 5.8 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 treys on 40.7 percent from the field and 42.9 percent from the line. Motiejunas is not a must-own player in standard leagues, especially with Dwight Howard coming back soon. He's worth owning in points leagues and deeper formats. Rotoworld.com

However, the pessimistic outlook makes it look like Jones is going to miss a couple games at least. If you own Jones and you're in the fantasy playoffs right now, it probably makes sense to cut him.

Jones was going off before his injury, scoring 10 points with two boards in nine minutes. The NBA injury report is getting out of hand and there's a decent chance TJ will need to miss more games based on how long it's taken him to recover from previous ailments.

    Advice: If Zeller is able to return to the lineup on Friday, he'll likely send Marvin Williams back to the bench, and his value would take a sizable hit. Zeller is only averaging 7.7 points and 5.8 rebounds per game, so he can't be considered a viable option in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

Foot injuries are very tricky, and Brooks described Durant's rehab as having "peaks and valleys," so we'll be considering him on the doubtful side of questionable for Sunday's game against Miami.

Durant has been doing some limited work in practice and we would consider him to be questionable for Friday against the Hawks.

    Advice: Orlando ranks No. 26 in defensive efficiency, allowing 105.4 points per 100 possessions, so it's no surprise to see D-Mo take advantage of the matchup. He saw more opportunities early with Terrence Jones coming off the bench in the first half, and with any luck this will spark an offensive resurgence -- he was making 37.9 percent FGs and 41.2 percent FTs over his previous six games.
