  • Courtney Lee struggling in March for Memphis
    Memphis coach Dave Joerger said that Courtney Lee suffers the most when the Grizzlies' ball-movement stagnates.

    Advice: "He needs a closeout and then he can either shoot it or put it on the ground for one or two dribbles and a pull-up," Joerger said. "We’re going to try and get him on the move a little bit and get him curling into the paint." C-Lee suggested that scouting reports have fed into his slump since the All-Star break, and he's averaging just 7.7 points on 34.4 percent shooting in March. It's nice that the Grizzlies are working to get him going, but in the meantime C-Lee belongs on the waiver wire in average leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Zach Randolph (elbow) intends to play Friday
    Zach Randolph (hyper-extended elbow) insisted that he will play vs. the Thunder on Friday.

    Advice: The injury caused Z-Bo to lose feeling in his right hand but he plans to receive treatment, wear a sleeve on his right arm, and take the court for Friday's important matchup with OKC. With two full days before the Grizzlies' next game we'll have plenty of warning if Randolph is at risk of a DNP. Rotoworld.com

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Andrew Bogut logs 30 minutes vs. Clippers
    Andrew Bogut had six points on 3-of-5 shooting, nine rebounds, five assists and one block in 30 minutes vs. DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Bogut was excited for a bigger offensive role under Steve Kerr this season, yet his current usage rate of 13.1 percent is the second-lowest of his 10-year NBA career. He's averaging under 25 minutes per game in March but is still racking up top-100 value thanks to solid rebounds (8.4), assists (2.3), steals (0.7) and blocks (1.6). That comes with excellent 58.2 percent FG shooting, and his miserable FT shooting (33.3) is so lightly weighted that it hardly affects fantasy owners -- he's attempted three free throws all month. He's a solid option when active, but keep in mind he could be rested during back-to-back games this weekend. Rotoworld.com

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

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

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

    Advice: The Warriors play games on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday this week and it would be surprising if Iguodala doesn't sit out one game -- he rested on Saturday and has had three precautionary DNP-CDs in the past month. Harrison Barnes, Leandro Barbosa and Shaun Livingston should all pick up extra minutes of Iguodala sits out this weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:57 pm
  • Harrison Barnes shoots 0-of-7 in road victory
    Harrison Barnes finished Tuesday's feisty 110-106 win in L.A. with only one point, seven rebounds and two assists, shooting 0-of-7 from the field in 25 minutes.

    Advice: This marks the third time all season that Barnes has gone without a field goal, and it's even more disappointing since Draymond Green (shin, rest) was unavailable tonight. Barnes has three games remaining this week and could see his role increase if Golden State rests key players, particularly during their back-to-back set this weekend. He's a viable late-round option despite tonight's dud. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:55 pm
  • David Lee will start Tuesday vs. the Clippers
    David Lee will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

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

  • Kris Humphries (groin) goes through practice
    Kris Humphries (groin) went through a full practice on Tuesday, and said he thinks he'll be available to play Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: Humphries has spent the past month on the sidelines, so he's likely going to be eased back into the rotation. With season averages of just 8.1 points and 6.7 rebounds, it's safe to leave Humphries on the wire in nearly all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Dion Waiters misses practice on Tuesday
    Dion Waiters (foot) sat out Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Thunder coach Scott Brooks said Waiters' foot is feeling better, but we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks. With Andre Roberson (ankle) likely out Wednesday, Anthony Morrow could be in line for all the minutes he can handle if Waiters is unable to play. Rotoworld.com

  • Lakers meeting to decide Jabari Brown's fate
    With Jabari Brown's second 10-day contract set to expire, Lakers head coach Byron Scott is meeting with general manager Mitch Kupchak to decide next steps.

    Advice: The 22-year-old is averaging 11.2 points, 1.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals, and 1.4 three-pointers over his last five games, so he's giving the Lakers a lot to think about. If the Lakers decide to sign Brown for the rest of the season, he's worth a flier in standard fantasy leagues as he's averaging 28.0 minutes per game over that five-game span. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:10 am
  • Brown posts nice money counters on Monday
    Lorenzo Brown scored seven points on 3-of-7 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, six assists, one steal and two blocks over 30 minutes on Monday against the Jazz.

    Advice: Brown has stealthily posted top 80-90 value over the last two weeks by hitting 52 percent of his shots while averaging 4.8 assists and 1.8 steals per game. If you need help in the latter two categories, he's well worth a look as long as Ricky Rubio and Kevin Martin remain out. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 11:07 pm
  • Clarkson scores 26 points with 11 assists
    Jordan Clarkson scored 26 points on 9-of-15 shooting (0-for-2 from deep, 8-of-10 from the line) with six rebounds, 11 assists and three steals in 44 minutes on Monday against the Sixers.

    Advice: Clarkson is the Lakers' most consistent asset right now and he's a must-start player going forward. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:01 pm
  • Brown scores 22 points off the bench
    Jabari Brown scored 22 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 7-of-10 shots (3-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-5 FTs) with zero rebounds, three assists and one steal in 34 minutes.

    Advice: This is a leveraged line with some deficiencies but all-in-all it's a continuation of the late-round value he has been posting for the last two weeks. Given the Lakers' favorable schedule and the fact he fits the team's tanking needs, he looks like a decent pickup. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:53 pm
  • Z-Bo hyperextends elbow, limps through game
    Zach Randolph suffered a hyperextended elbow and limped a bit on a sore knee in Monday's 97-83 win over the hapless Kings on Monday, but the injuries apparently aren't serious.

    Advice: Randolph is banged up like the rest of his teammates and they could all use a rest, but they're locked up in a big battle for seeding. We'll let you know if news worsens but owners can keep him in lineups, and he was fine tonight with 15 points, seven boards, three assists and one steal in his 30 minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:33 pm
  • Blake Griffin's elbow a little swollen, sore
    Blake Griffin (elbow) admitted that he was a "a little swollen, a little sore, but OK" after taking a blow to the elbow on Sunday.

    Advice: Griffin banged his elbow in what was the hardest shot he's sustained since returning, and although it sounds like he'll be fine, it's certainly worth monitoring considering what he's been through this season. For now, there is nothing to suggest it's a serious concern. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:27 am
  • Dion Waiters to have sore foot examined
    Dion Waiters (foot) will have an examination when the Thunder return to Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Waiters has been complaining of foot pain over the last few games, and this is par for the course considering how OKC's season is going with injuries. Waiters did manage to jack up 20 shots in Sunday's win over Phoenix and played nearly 38 minutes while doing so. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:09 am
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) starts, gets 18 points
    Dion Waiters (ankle) started Sunday's road win vs. the Suns and finished with 18 points 8-of-20 shooting with one 3-pointer, three rebound, one assist and three turnovers.

    Advice: He struggled on Saturday with just three points on 1-of-4 shooting, possibly due to his sore ankle, but the injury didn't appear to limit him tonight. The bad news is that this line typifies the reasons why Waiters is a poor fantasy option -- he shoots inefficiently and contributes paltry rebounds, assists, steals and blocks, so one off-shooting night can tank his week. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:55 pm
  • Z-Bo has 20 & 13 but MEM loses third straight
    Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies with a 20 & 13 double-double on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to earn a road win in San Antonio.

    Advice: Memphis has dropped three straight games and they're just 11-10 since the All-Star break, a record that doesn't bode well with the postseason just a few weeks away. Z-Bo's team-high scoring came on 9-of-16 shooting, a solid performance that helps compensate for his utter lack of assists, steals or blocks. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 6:31 pm
  • Courtney Lee can't heat up offensively
    Courtney Lee had another cool night offensively on Sunday, hitting 4-of-11 FGs to finish with 10 points, one rebound, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Lee's playing time was inflated by Tony Allen's absence with a sore hamstring, but Lee still didn't do enough to justify plucking him off the waiver wire. He came in shooting 32.7 percent from the field in March, and 23.7 percent from downtown, rendering him unusable in all but the deepest fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 6:26 pm
  • Lorenzo Brown hands out eight assists vs. NO
    Lorenzo Brown started at PG again on Sunday, finishing a 22-point loss to New Orleans with eight points, three rebounds, eight assists and four turnovers.

    Advice: The Wolves committed five turnovers on their first seven possessions and they can't get Ricky Rubio (ankle) back soon enough -- the good news is that he's questionable to return on Monday. Brown logged 36 minutes tonight and is a decent deep-league source of assists and steals, but the well could dry up whenever Rubio and Kevin Martin (hamstring) return. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:24 pm
  • Jabari Brown chips in four steals, one block
    Jabari Brown shot just 4-of-14 from the field to score 11 points in 31 minutes on Sunday, but he also contributed one 3-pointer, four rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block.

    Advice: The 22-year-old shooting guard has impressed the Lakers since he inked his first 10-day contract, and it's possible that he'll be signed for the rest of the season. Today's defensive stats look like an aberration, however, and he's still only on the radar in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 2:53 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson posts 18-7-6 line in loss
    Jordan Clarkson looked great during Sunday's loss to the Nets, posting 18 points on 7-of-14 shooting (3-of-4 from the line), seven assists, six rebounds, one 3-pointer and two turnovers through 35 minutes of action.

    Advice: Clarkson has really got things rolling during the month of March, posting averages of 14.9 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game. The Lakers are fully committed to developing him, so he'll continue to log heavy minutes as they close out their regular-season. Keep rolling him out there. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 2:50 pm
  • Kris Humphries (groin) will not play Sunday
    Kris Humphries (groin) will not play vs. the Rockets on Sunday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Feb. 26 and he remains without a timetable to return. Kevin Seraphin and Drew Gooden will continue to see a few extra minutes off the bench, but both players are not options in standard leagues. Humphries can be dropped everywhere until he is cleared to play. Rotoworld.com

  • Dion Waiters scores just three points in loss
    Dion Waiters scored just three points on 1-of-4 shooting in a loss to the Jazz on Saturday, adding two boards, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Waiters had scored in double digits in each of his last four games, so this was a frustrating line for any owners relying on him tonight. Waiters is still locked into a starting role moving forward with Andre Roberson on the shelf, and he will have a chance to bounce back vs. the Suns on Sunday. That being said, he is far from a must-own player in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:53 pm
  • Warriors lock up No. 1 seed in West, win 60th
    Stephen Curry made 8-of-13 from the field with six 3-pointers for 25 points during a 108-95 win in Milwaukee on Saturday, adding four rebounds, six assists, one steal and six turnovers.

    Advice: He didn't have a great first half and was in foul trouble, but Curry and the Warriors turned it on in the third quarter -- that's been their calling card lately. They won their ninth consecutive game and have clinched the top seed in the Western Conference with their 60th win. Curry has been flat-out ridiculous from deep over his last five, making 5.4 treys per game on 61.4 percent from that range. He has to be the favorite for MVP. Meanwhile it's probably safe to say Steve Kerr made the right call with the Warriors winning their 60th game of the season on the same night the Knicks lost their 60th. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:23 pm
  • David Lee plays 21 minutes vs. Bucks
    David Lee played 21 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday with 12 points, four rebounds, one assist and two turnovers.

    Advice: The Warriors blew out the Bucks, so Lee didn't play in the fourth quarter. Draymond Green is dealing with some minutes injuries, so he could get another game of rest. Lee won't be worth owning while Dray is active, though. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:17 pm
  • Curry and Klay are good to go
    Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut are all starting on Saturday.

    Advice: This was as expected with the Warriors not pulling any shady business on resting guys. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 5:14 pm
  • David Lee will start for Draymond Green
    David Lee will start for Draymond Green on Saturday against the Bucks.

    Advice: He played 31 minutes in his last start and scored 13 points on 4-of-12 from the field, but that was without Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry. When Lee is with those two in 138 minutes this season, he has a solid 19.4 usage rate, so he should still be able to produce. He's worth starting in standard leagues tonight. James Michael McAdoo and Marreese Speights should also play more. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:04 pm
  • Byron Scott praises Jordan Clarkson again
    The first thing that head coach Byron Scott noticed in the box score was that Jordan Clarkson finished Friday's game with zero assists, but he still came to the rookie's defense.

    Advice: "That’s something that at a young age, he’s going to have to figure out on the fly," said Scott. "He did get in the paint a few times and finish it off. But guys just didn’t make layups or they got fouled and went to the free throw line. He was still unselfish and doing the right things. It just didn’t show up in the stat sheet." Clarkson has been excellent for the Lakers this season and it looks like he has a bright future in this league, so we would expect for him to get every opportunity to succeed as we close out the season. Keep him active in all lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:23 am
  • Curry posts 38 & 10 with eight 3-pointers
    Stephen Curry torched the Grizzlies in an easy road win on Friday, scoring 38 points on 12-of-22 shooting (8-of-12 3PTs, 6-of-6 FTs) with three rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and one block.

    Advice: This is just a crippling line if you had to go against Curry this week and right next door Klay Thompson wasn't bad either with 28 points and six treys of his own. Steve Kerr has made a number of overtures to the effect that rest is good, and owners have to hope that this just means they get hit with a game or two of rest and nothing more. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:04 pm
  • Barnes scores three points with two steals
    Harrison Barnes scored three points on 1-of-2 shooting (including a trey) with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 24 minutes on Monday against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Barnes is riding the coattails of a few big games this past week and altogether he's been productive enough over that span to be worth owning. Obviously he's a shaky asset but Andre Iguodala is already ruled out for Saturday's game and with four games next week he could be worth sticking into lineups if the Dubs rest guys. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:01 pm
  • Lorenzo Brown scores six
    Lorenzo Brown scored six points with two rebounds, five assists, three steals and two turnovers in 37 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: The minutes and dimes are there, but the scoring isn't just yet. Kevin Martin (hamstrings) appears to be out for a couple more games, so expect Brown to have plenty of minutes headed his way. He'll likely have more offensive responsibility on Sunday. He's only worth a look in 16-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:50 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 14 with no dimes
    Jordan Clarkson scored 14 points during a 94-83 loss to the Raptors on Friday with four rebounds, two steals and one turnover in 33 minutes.

    Advice: He didn't have an assist tonight, but the scoring numbers are there for Clarkson. He's a good bet to lead the team in points going forward and he should add some steals along with a few other stats along the way. He's worth owning in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:22 pm
  • Chris Paul scores an efficient 25 points
    Chris Paul was magnificent against the 76ers during a 119-98 win on Friday with 25 points, three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three 3-pointers on 9-of-15 from the field in just 30 minutes.

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

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

    Advice: He only scored two of the Clippers' 62 points in the first half and posted a pedestrian usage rate of 12.5 in the entire game. Griffin hasn't quite been himself since returning from an elbow injury, averaging 18.0 points, 8.2 boards, 4.9 assists and 1.3 steals in his previous seven games. He should be better on Sunday in Boston. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:25 pm
  • Andre Iguodala will be rested on Saturday
    Andre Iguodala will be rested on Saturday night in Milwaukee.

    Advice: Coach Steve Kerr said others will have their minutes limited, so there's a chance there could be other DNPs on the horizon. Iguodala had a bad game in a win on Friday, making 1-of-11 from the field for three points with six boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer. It'll be Harrison Barnes, Shaun Livingston and Justin Holiday stepping up. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:35 pm
  • 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

  • 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

  • Jordan Clarkson not happy with his play
    Despite solid back-to-back efforts on Tuesday and Wednesday, Jordan Clarkson said he's still not satisfied with his play.

    Advice: Despite his line 20 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals, and a block that included the game-winning free throws on Wednesday, Clarkson is still looking for improvement. "I think I took a few steps back," said Clarkson. "I didn’t take care of the ball well. I was holding it a little bit too much on the offensive end. I have to keep growing, watch the film and learn from it." As evidenced by his last two games, Clarkson has been fully unleashed in the Lakers' offense and is a must-own player in all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Dion Waiters scores 14 in start
    Dion Waiters, who was benched for the start of the second half on Tuesday, started for the Thunder on Wednesday and had 14 points, a steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-11 shooting.

    Advice: Waiters' line was actually pretty decent due to the final score of 130-91 looking more like an old-school Globetrotters' score over the Washington Generals, instead of a meeting of two of the West's better teams. With Andre Roberson down and out, Waiters should continue to get plenty of starts and run from here on out. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:53 pm
  • Lo Brown starts for Kevin Martin
    Lorenzo Brown started at shooting guard on Wednesday and had eight points, nine rebounds and three steals in an overtime loss to the Lakers.

    Advice: Lo-Bro played 35 minutes and as long as Kevin Martin is resting, Brown could continue to see 30-plus minutes a night. Deep leaguers should give him a look. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:44 pm
  • Jabari Brown plays 32 minutes in OT win
    Jabari Brown played a whopping 32 minutes on Wednesday and hit 3-of-4 shots (all 3-pointers) for nine points, four boards, three assists and a steal in an overtime win against Minnesota.

    Advice: With the Lakers showing little interest in winning games these days, it's possible that Brown continues to play heavy minutes. Deep-leaguers should keep an eye on him and hope that he continues to try to impress those actually watching the Lakers play. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:40 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 20, hits game-winners
    Jordan Clarkson came off his career-high 30-point game and had 20 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals, a block and six turnovers in Wednesday's OT win against the Wolves.

    Advice: He also hit two free throws with 0.3 seconds left in overtime to give his team the win. While that's a good thing for JC and his fantasy owners, the Lakers were surely hoping for a loss in order to get more ping pong balls. Clarkson is a must-own player until further notice. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:34 pm
  • Courtney Lee scoreless in start
    Courtney Lee started after missing time with a hand injury, but missed all three of his shots and didn't score.

    Advice: Tony Allen has been hot for the Grizzlies and had seven points, eight rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer, despite hitting just 3-of-11 shots. Forget about Lee unless you see him get hot. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:16 pm
  • Zach Randolph disappears vs. Cavs
    Zach Randolph hit just 2-of-8 shots for five points and three rebounds in 20 minutes in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Cavaliers.

    Advice: The good news is there are no reports of injury. The 111-89 loss was the worst home defeat for the Grizzlies this season, and they're now just 1.5 games ahead of the third-place Rockets in the West. Z-Bo never got it going and didn't play much after the Cavs opened up a 29-point lead in the third quarter. Look for the Grizzlies to bounce back in the next one. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:14 pm
  • Courtney Lee will start, Jeff Green off bench
    Courtney Lee (hand) will start against the Cavs on Wednesday with Jeff Green going back to the bench.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise with the Grizzlies saying they like Green as a primary scoring option off the bench. Lee has lost a lot of fantasy value since Green arrived and can be left on the wire in standard formats. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 5:04 pm
  • Lorenzo Brown starting for Kevin Martin
    Lorenzo Brown is starting in place of Kevin Martin on Wednesday against the Lakers.

    Advice: Martin is "available to play" for the Wolves, which is pretty much meaningless. Brown probably won't play 45 minutes like he did on Monday, but he could play around 30 or so. Give him a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (hand) expects to play Wednesday
    Courtney Lee (hand) is expected to play against the Cavs on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He's been out since Saturday due to a hand sprain, which has been a lingering issue for him in the past couple weeks. With Lee back, Tony Allen and Jeff Green will lose some playing time. Green may also come off the bench, but he's still worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kris Humphries (groin) won't play vs. Pacers
    Kris Humphries (groin) will sit out again vs. the Pacers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Feb. 26 and it's anyone's guess when he'll return to action, though it's somewhat encouraging that he's traveling with the team. Nene, Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin will continue to play a few extra minutes in Humphries' absence. Rotoworld.com

  • Kris Humphries (groin) doubtful for Wednesday
    Kris Humphries (groin) is doubtful to play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has been on the shelf since Feb. 26 and his recovery has been unusually slow, so we would be surprised if he managed to play tonight. We will know more closer to tip-off, but Humprhies still belongs on the wire in most leagues. Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin will continue to see a slight uptick in minutes off the bench if Humprhries can't play. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (hand) questionable Wednesday
    Courtney Lee (hand) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Lee has missed two consecutive games, but we haven't heard a lot about his progress in the last few days. If Lee can't play tonight, Tony Allen will draw another start and is worth owning if you need steals while Jeff Green will continue to be a factor in the scoring column for the Grizzlies.

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

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

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

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

  • Andrew Bogut grabs game-high 16 rebounds
    Andrew Bogut snared a game-high 16 rebounds on Tuesday, adding 10 points, six assists and one steal during a high-scoring victory in Portland.

    Advice: Bogut's rebounding binge was somewhat predictable -- the Blazers are giving up the seventh-most rebounds per game to opponents this season (44.7) and they were playing without LaMarcus Aldridge, Nicolas Batum and Chris Kaman. Bogut had more boards just once this season, back on Nov. 8, and we're not expecting a repeat performance vs. Marc Gasol and the Grizzlies on Friday. Rotoworld.com

  • Andre Iguodala scores 21 pts on 9-of-11 FGs
    Andre Iguodala lit up the Blazers for 21 points on 9-of-11 shooting during Tuesday's road win, hitting three 3-pointers with four boards, four assists and one steal.

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

  • Jordan Clarkson pours in career-high 30 pts
    Jordan Clarkson scored a career-high 30 points during Tuesday's loss in Oklahoma City, hitting 12-of-19 FGs with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three blocks.

    Advice: Two of his makes came from downtown and he committed a tolerable three turnovers in a team-high 36 minutes of action. Jeremy Lin joined Clarkson in the backcourt and it suited both players just fine, as they combined for 49 points on 60.0 percent shooting. The Lakers are in player-development mode and Clarkson is at the top of the list, so tonight's gem could be a harbinger of things to come in L.A.'s final dozen games. Rotoworld.com

  • Dion Waiters stays hot w/ 23 points vs Lakers
    Dion Waiters was benched to start the second half of Tuesday's game, but he got hot offensively and finished with 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists and only one turnover in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Anthony Morrow took Waiters' spot with the starters and remains the more valuable fantasy option, regardless of where he begins Wednesday's game in San Antonio. Waiters has been hot offensively over his past few games, however, and is worth plugging into lineup until he cools off. OKC is starting to gain some breathing room as the No. 8 seed in the West, pulling two games ahead of the idle Suns with tonight's 127-117 home win. Rotoworld.com

  • Blake Griffin's battery case dismissed
    Prosecutors in Las Vegas have dropped battery charges against Blake Griffin that stemmed from a complaint that Griffin slapped a man and grabbed his cellphone at a nightclub last October.

    Advice: Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson said new information obtained since the charge was filed in November made it clear that the allegations couldn't be proved and Griffin will not have to appear in court. While a court case may have resulted in discipline from the league, it sounds like Griffin will be able to put this incident behind him. Rotoworld.com

  • Lorenzo Brown logs 45 minutes on Monday
    Lorenzo Brown started for Kevin Martin (hamstring) on Monday and logged 45 minutes, scoring 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting with seven rebounds, six assists and two steals.

    Advice: Brown will be a tough bet in standard leagues even if we know the same pack of Wolves are going to be out on Wednesday. Chances are one or more of them will return and make Brown a bystander, but in DFS leagues he might have some short-term value. Rotoworld.com

  • Z-Bo posts 23-7-5; Gasol hits 21 and eight
    Zach Randolph scored 23 points on 9-of-12 shooting (5-of-6 FTs) with seven rebounds and five assists in Monday's win over the Knicks.

    Advice: Randolph has been a solid mid-round value this season and as long as the Grizzlies don't run away with the No. 2 seed the vets should see action down the stretch. It doesn't hurt that Mike Conley is the first guy up for some rest, either. Marc Gasol added 21 and eight with three assists in the win. Rotoworld.com

  • Kris Humphries (groin) out again for Monday
    Kris Humphries (groin) will not play against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: He might miss the entire month of March and has been out since Feb. 26. Humphries can be ignored in most leagues. Marcin Gortat and Nene get a tough matchup tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Lorenzo Brown to start for Kevin Martin
    Lorenzo Brown will start in place of Kevin Martin (hamstring) on Monday against the Jazz.

    Advice: As they say on the internet, "Welp!" It sounds like Martin is going to be limited, so Brown might get 20-30 minutes tonight. He's worth a look in deep leagues. Meanwhile, Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine are going to get more chances at shots. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:01 pm
  • Courtney Lee (hand) out again on Monday
    Courtney Lee (hand) will not play against the Knicks on Monday.

    Advice: The Grizzlies should be OK without him. On Saturday, Jeff Green and Tony Allen played outstanding ball with Green putting up a 23-point gem and Allen double-doubling with six steals. They're both worth looks in all leagues tonight. Lee can be cut in most leagues until he's deemed healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Lou Amundson scoreless in 16 minutes
    Lou Amundson didn't score in 16 minutes vs. the Raptors on Sunday, missing all three of his field goals and both of his free throws.

    Advice: The nine-year veteran did chip in seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block, but he lost substantial playing time to backup big man Jason Smith (three points, three boards in 23 minutes). Neither guy is worth owning while they're locked in a value-killing timeshare at PF/C. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Paul guides Clippers to 107-100 victory
    Chris Paul led the Clippers to a 107-100 win vs. the Pelicans on Sunday, scoring 23 points with seven rebounds, 11 assists and four steals.

    Advice: He did his damage in 38 minutes and he's averaging a stellar 22.3 points, 11.3 assists and 1.6 steals since the All-Star break. The No. 5 seed Clippers are in the thick of the playoff race with 2.5 games separating the No. 7 and No. 3 seeds, so CP3's owners shouldn't have to worry about precautionary DNPs this week.

  • Kris Humphries (groin) is inactive on Sunday
    Kris Humphries (groin) is inactive for Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: There hasn't been a lot of information on Humphries' recovery and it's possible he sits out through the end of March. Humphries shouldn't be owners in just about any league right now, and his absence has opened up more minutes for Drew Gooden and Kevin Seraphin off the bench. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Andrew Bogut plays 30 minutes
    Andrew Bogut played 30 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday with eight points, eight rebounds, five assists, one steal and three blocks.

    Advice: He had some fantastic passes tonight and he's playing some of his best ball right now. Bogut did only play 15 minutes on Friday and the Warriors absolutely won't be playing him 30 minutes very often. He should have decent value in home games and will be worth starting on those nights.
