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

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

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

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

  • Byron Scott praises rookie Jordan Clarkson
    Byron Scott believes that rookie Jordan Clarkson "has a chance" to become an All-Star in the NBA.

    Advice: "The more he gains experience, he will learn the pace of the game, how to slow it down and use his speed when he has to do so," Scott said. "His ceiling is pretty high." Clarkson has posted ridiculous averages of 21.6 points, 6.0 assists, 5.0 boards and 1.6 steals over his last five games, and the Lakers have to be feeling pretty good about themselves by stealing him in the second round of the draft last year. Clarkson is an absolute must-start player down the stretch. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Durant to stick with Thunder for life?
    In a recent interview with Revolt TV, Kevin Durant said that he "would like to stick it out with one team for his entire career."

    Advice: "I love it here, man," Durant said. "I love my teammates, I love the city, I don’t really think about anywhere else." Durant is under contract for one more season with the Thunder, and there has been a lot of speculation that he would entertain the idea of playing for the Wizards. Despite all the troubles he had with his foot this season, there is no doubt that he is one of the best players in the NBA when healthy and he should have no problems getting a max contract when that time comes. Durant is out for the season after having bone graft surgery on his foot on Tuesday, but we will have plenty of updates on his status during his rehab and he should be able to return in time for training camp.

  • 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

  • Kawhi Leonard blitzes Heat, gets the sack
    Kawhi Leonard was at it again on Tuesday, blitzing the Heat with 22 points (8-of-13 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), one 3-pointer, nine rebounds, three assists, four steals, two blocks and one turnover.

    Advice: That's an almost pristine nine-cat game from Leonard, who is making an emphatic claim for Defensive Player of the Year honors. He's taken over game after game since the All-Star break, helping the Spurs find a groove that should scare the rest of the league, and he's carrying more than a few fantasy teams to the finish line. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:08 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey (wrist) shoots 1-of-8 vs. Nets
    Rodney Stuckey (sore right wrist) notched four points (1-of-8 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs) with two rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes on Tuesday, and he started the second half in place of C.J. Miles (sprained ankle).

    Advice: Stuckey recently came back from a calf injury and he's perpetually banged up, but the Pacers are scrapping for a playoff spot so it's not surprising that he'd play at less than 100 percent. His potential for offensive eruptions makes him a tantalizing fantasy option, especially if he starts on Wednesday, though he's been reduced to late-round value over the past 12 games with averages of 14.8 points on 42.8 percent shooting, 3.9 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 0.8 steals. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:48 pm
  • Thaddeus Young (knee) returns as starting PF
    Thaddeus Young (left knee) returned to the Nets' starting lineup on Tuesday with eight points, seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and zero turnovers in a much-needed win vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He shot 4-of-11 from the field without any 3-pointers, but any notion of a minute-limit was abolished as he racked up 39 minutes tonight. Thad's true shooting has leaped to 55.4 percent in Brooklyn, up from 49.1 percent in Minnesota, and he should at least maintain his current late-round value as the Nets chase a playoff berth. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:46 pm
  • John Lucas III scores 15 pts in expanded role
    Pistons PG John Lucas III stepped up in 22 minutes off the bench Tuesday, scoring 15 points on 7-of-11 field goals with three assists and two steals.

    Advice: Lucas also made one 3-pointer, taking full advantage of extra playing time with Reggie Jackson under the weather and Spencer Dinwiddie leaving early with a sprained ankle. Lucas has been nowhere near fantasy relevance since coming to Detroit but that could chance if R-Jax and Dinwiddie both sit out Wednesday's game. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:57 pm
  • Luol Deng (knee) out Tuesday vs. the Spurs
    Luol Deng (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: With Deng out, Henry Walker will have the opportunity for another start, with Michael Beasley and James Ennis seeing extended minutes off the bench. Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic will run the show on offense, and both guys are worth a look in daily leagues. Walker can be viewed as a streamer option for those seeking some 3-point shooting and steals. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (wrist) will play Tuesday
    Rodney Stuckey (wrist) will play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Stuckey will draw a very favorable matchup against the Nets tonight, so make sure you have him on your active roster. C.J. Waton's value takes a hit with Stuckey active. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:12 pm
  • Thaddeus Young will start Tuesday vs. IND
    Thaddeus Young will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers, sending Mason Plumlee back to the bench.

    Advice: Young will not be on a minutes limit tonight, so owners can feel confident plugging him into their active rosters. Plumlee didn't do much during his run with the starting unit, so the demotion to the second unit isn't going to do him any favors. In fact, Plumlee is averaging just 5.1 points and 4.8 rebounds on 43.6 percent shooting as a reserve, so it makes sense to drop him in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:52 pm
  • Dwight Howard (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Dwight Howard (knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Sacramento.

    Advice: Howard is going to sit either Wednesday's game vs. the Kings, or Thursday's game vs. the Mavericks, and owners can expect another update on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. When he sits, Joey Dorsey will slot into the starting center spot, although he can only be viewed as a rebounding specialist in extremely deep leagues. Josh Smith, however, will get all the run he can handle when Dwight is out of commission, and he's the guy that should be targeted in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Durant: 'This is just a small obstacle'
    Kevin Durant took to Instagram following his season-ending bone graft surgery on Tuesday, and described his recovery process as "a small obstacle" in the "big picture."

    Advice: We wish Durant the best in his recovery, and you can click the link below to see the full post for yourself. Durant, once seemingly invincible, has for the first time in his career had his season derailed by injuries, and there are no guarantees he's ready to go by the start of training camp next season. He's going to be a risky first-round selection next year, which is a very weird sentence to read/write. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • 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

  • Kevin Durant undergoes bone graft surgery
    Kevin Durant (foot) had bone graft surgery for the fifth metatarsal of his right foot on Tuesday and is expected to miss the next four to six months.

    Advice: While we've yet to see a team say a surgery was unsuccessful, it's worth noting that the Thunder deemed the surgery a success. The optimistic end of Durant's timetable would put him back on the court by training camp, while the longer end of of that timetable would having him returning at some point in October. We'll be keeping close tabs on Durant's recovery, but the 2015-16 season will mark the first in years where he's not the top option in fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com

  • Thaddeus Young will play Tuesday vs Pacers
    Thaddeus Young (knee) will be available for Tuesday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: The words "available to play" would seem to insinuate that Young won't start after missing the Nets' previous two games with a left knee strain. We'll update Young's status as more information is available, but he's a risky start for fantasy owners if he's coming off the bench behind Miles Plumlee. Rotoworld.com

  • Damian Lillard turns it around vs. Suns
    Damian Lillard ended his brief slump on Monday against the Suns, making 7-of-14 from the field for 19 points with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He had two really bad games over the weekend, but it was just a matter of time before he picked it up. Lillard and the Blazers get a huge matchup against the Clippers on Wednesday, which could be a preview of a first-round playoff series. Lillard also has two more games after that, so he should be a huge help to his fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 11:10 pm
  • Marcus Morris plays just 22 minutes
    Marcus Morris played 22 minutes against the Blazers during a 109-86 loss on Monday, scoring 11 points with one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: The Suns were blown out, so Morris didn't play in the fourth quarter. He should be a safe bet for around 30 minutes, but the Suns losing ground in the standings could change their rotation to favor the young guys. Morris is still worth owning in standard leagues until Brandon Knight (ankle) gets back. As a side note, the Suns have been a complete disaster in the third quarter in their last four, posting a putrid 71.1 offensive efficiency rating in those four quarters combined. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:49 pm
  • Smith slows down in loss to Raptors
    Josh Smith scored just eight points on 3-of-14 shooting (0-for-4 from deep) with four rebounds, two assists and one steal in Monday's loss to the Raptors.

    Advice: Smith has been on fire and was due for a bad game. With Donatas Motiejunas, Terrence Jones and Dwight Howard either out and/or on minutes limits he's still a must-start player. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • Brandon Knight (ankle) out again on Monday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Blazers on Monday.

    Advice: He sprained his ankle again on Sunday and the Suns will continue to hold him out. Expect Marcus Morris and Archie Goodwin to get most of his minutes. Morris is worth owning in all leagues while Knight isn't a great player to own right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Luol Deng (knee) questionable for Tuesday
    Luol Deng (knee) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Tuesday night.

    Advice: He had some swelling in his knee on Sunday and did not play in the second half. Deng has dealt with a handful of knee and leg issues this season, so there's a decent chance he's out. Miami does have four games this week, so Deng could get multiple games in even if he misses Tuesday. If he's out, Bill Walker and James Ennis will get more run. Deng's fantasy owners might want to play it safe and go with someone else in weekly leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (wrist) questionable Tuesday
    Rodney Stuckey (wrist) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Nets.

    Advice: Stuckey logged 30 minutes in Sunday's win over the Mavs while coming off a calf injury, but apparently he managed to add another injury in the process. If he's forced to sit out, C.J. Miles and C.J. Watson would both be the most direct beneficiaries. Rotoworld.com

  • Thad Young questionable vs. IND on Tuesday
    Thad Young (knee) shot around on Monday, and he's being listed as questionable to face the Pacers on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's iffy at best for Tuesday and Wednesday's back-to-back set, and he's been out since March 25 with the knee injury. Young's owners can't afford to rely on his return right now given he doesn't appear anywhere close to full strength, and if Young continues to sit, Miles Plumlee is likely to to start at power forward with Earl Clark and Alan Anderson getting a little more time off the bench. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Dwight Howard (knee) will not play on Monday
    Dwight Howard (knee) will not play on Monday against the Raptors.

    Advice: Howard was already ruled out of the contest, and this is just a reminder that he's not cleared to play in back-to-back sets. Without Howard available, the Rockets will have to rely on starting Joey Dorsey inside, going small often and Josh Smith playing all of the minutes he can handle. Rotoworld.com

  • Luol Deng dealing with swelling in his knee
    Luol Deng's knee swelled up at halftime of Sunday's win.

    Advice: Deng did not play in the second half, and when asked about how he felt, Deng said they'd just take it day-by-day in an attempt to get all of the swelling out of the area. Right now, he sounds very iffy for Tuesday, leaving James Ennis as a possibility to start in his place. Ennis started the second half for Deng on Sunday and finished with 16 points, six rebounds and two threes on 5-of-7 shooting in 24.5 minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

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

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

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

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

  • Rodney Stuckey (calf) plays 30 minutes Sunday
    Rodney Stuckey (calf) logged 30 minutes during Sunday's much-needed win vs. Dallas, scoring 10 points with one 3-pointer, five rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: He wasn't on a minute-limit and is safe to deploy whenever he's healthy, as the Pacers have given him a green-light to shoot with their second unit (he finished 4-of-14 from the field tonight). The second unit has proven to be a strength for Indiana this season -- their bench is averaging 41.0 points per game, second in the NBA behind only the Lakers. Stuckey's return stole some playing time from C.J. Miles (28 minutes), C.J. Watson (24 minutes) and especially Solomon Hill (14 minutes). Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • Kawhi Leonard posts 25 & 10 in win vs. MEM
    Kawhi Leonard carried the Spurs to a win over Memphis on Sunday with 25 points on 11-of-17 shooting, 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: DNP-CDs have been mercifully rare for the Spurs this season, but if Gregg Popovich does intend to rest his key players, there are two likely back-to-back sets coming up on Mar. 31/Apr. 1 and Apr. 7/8. There's obviously no need to panic, especially with Leonard -- the 23-year-old star scored 15 straight points in the fourth quarter tonight and he's reclaimed elite value despite playing a modest 33.1 minutes per game in March.

  • 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

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) will play vs. OKC
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will play vs. the Thunder on Sunday, but he will come off the bench.

    Advice: After an eight-game absence, Knight is finally back. His minutes will probably be held in check and he will might be a little rusty, but his owners will be pumped to have him back in their lineups. Marcus Morris will remain in the starting lineup for now, but his value could take a hit down the stretch. We will let you know how Knight holds up after the game. Rotoworld.com

  • Luol Deng (knee contusion) out for game Sun
    Luol Deng suffered a left knee contusion vs. the Pistons on Sunday and will not return.

    Advice: The Heat have had terrible luck with injuries this season, and knowing how cautious they tend to be with their players, it's possible that Deng's status could be in jeopardy for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs. For what it's worth , head coach Erik Spoelstra was optimistic that Deng would be able to play on Tuesday, but we should be able to provide more details when he is evaluated on Monday. If Deng is forced to miss any time, James Ennis, Michael Beasley (elbow) and Henry Walker would all have to step up on the wing. Deng finished with four points, two boards, one assist and one steal in 18 minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • Josh Smith lighting it up for the Rockets
    Josh Smith had another great all-around game on Sunday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-13 shooting, with 10 rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, two blocks, one steal and four turnovers through 36 minutes of action.

    Advice: Smith is currently the only healthy power forward on the roster, so he's seen his minutes and production take a big leap over the past two games with Donatas Motiejunas (back) joining Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) on the sidelines. Motiejunas has been ruled out for the next 1-2 weeks, and Jones is without an official return date, meaning that J Smoov is an absolute must-start option heading into a four-game week for the Rockets.

  • Dwight Howard double-doubles in 19 minutes
    Dwight Howard managed to put up a double-double despite his minutes restriction on Sunday, with 11 points on 3-of-6 shooting (5-of-8 from the line), 10 rebounds and two turnovers.

    Advice: Howard has been effective since returning from a two-month absence, posting averages of 11.0 points and 7.0 rebounds on 72.2 percent shooting from the field. However, the Rockets have two back-to-back sets coming next week, meaning Howard has a maximum of two games, so owners in weekly formats should leave him on the bench. He's already been ruled out for Monday's game vs. the Wizards, and he'll be forced to sit either Thursday vs. the Kings or Friday vs. the Mavericks. He's a guy whose name is bigger than his game right now, and we wouldn't recommend owning him in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Dwight Howard (knee) will play on Sunday
    Dwight Howard (knee) will play on Sunday vs. the Wizards, but he will not play vs. the Raptors on Monday.

    Advice: Howard isn't cleared to play in back-to-back sets, so there are no surprises here. Howard will be limited to 20 minutes vs. the Wizards, and even though he isn't a must-start player he should be able to produce enough points, boards and blocks to make an impact in most leagues. Just keep in mind that his free throw shooting is a major liability in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:48 am
  • Dwight Howard (knee) questionable Sunday
    Dwight Howard (knee) will either play on Sunday vs. the Wizards or Monday vs. the Raptors according to head coach Kevin McHale.

    Advice: Howard will warm up and see how he feels before making a decision, so we should have another update in the next hour. Howard will be limited to 20 minutes if he does play, so most owners should probably keep him on their bench for now. If Howard decides to sit this one out, Josh Smith and Joey Dorsey will have their hands full in the frontcourt while Trevor Ariza will probably have to play some stretch four as well. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:25 am
  • Rodney Stuckey (calf) will play on Sunday
    Rodney Stuckey (calf) will play on Sunday vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: Stuckey is returning from a three-game absence due to a calf strain, so it will be interesting to see how he holds up during the game. He isn't a must-own player by any means, but he is worth a look if you need help in scoring. C.J. Watson and C.J. Miles will lose some touches on offense Sunday, and their owners should expect their value to take a hit. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:13 am
  • 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
  • Damian Lillard is in a mini slump right now
    Damian Lillard made 4-of-11 from the field for eight points with three boards, 10 assists, one steal and three turnovers in 30 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

    Advice: He's in a slump. He made just 4-of-15 from the field on Friday and tonight was just his third game without a trey on the season. On the bright side, the Blazers are on a three-game winning streak. He also had four fouls in a game for just the third time in 2015. His fantasy owners will get a four-game week starting on Monday, assuming they were able to withstand the Lillard drought this week. Rotoworld.com

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

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

    Advice: Stuckey has been in street clothes for the past three games, and the Pacers may continue to err on the side of caution on Sunday. If Stuckey is unable to play, C.J. Watson and C.J. Miles will be the primary beneficiaries and would be worth a look in daily leagues. We should have another update after shootaround Sunday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:12 am
  • Thaddeus Young (knee) officially out Sunday
    Thaddeus Young (knee) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: This will be his second straight game out of the lineup, and there is still no indication on when he will return. The Nets are still in the playoff hunt, so hopefully we will see Young back out on the floor soon. Mason Plumlee started at power forward on Friday vs. the Cavaliers, but he was largely ineffective and is only worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:06 am
  • 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
  • Marcus Morris scores 19 points in loss
    Marcus Morris scored 19 points in 44 minutes against the Blazers on Friday with 12 boards, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's been very busy on the glass with four double-digit board games in his last five, averaging 13.6 points, 9.8 boards, 3.6 dimes, 1.4 steals and 1.8 treys on 42.9 percent from the field. Brandon Knight (ankle) was very close to a return yet again tonight, so Marcus will likely be losing playing time in the near future. He's worth owning in standard leagues until Knight can actually make it through a warmup, though. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:18 pm
  • Dwight Howard scores 18 in 20 minutes
    Dwight Howard played 20 minutes against the Wolves on Friday, making 8-of-9 from the field for 18 points with four rebounds, two steals and one block.

    Advice: All eight of his makes came off an assist and most of those were as the roll man in a pick-and-roll. Howard is not going to play in back-to-back sets, so he's going to miss either Sunday or Monday. On the nights he plays, he should be worth starting as long as you're fine with him not making free throws. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:10 pm
  • Josh Smith flirts with trip-dub in 40 minutes
    Josh Smith logged 40 minutes against the Wolves on Friday with 16 points, nine rebounds, 11 assists, three blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was the ball handler in a lot of pick-and-roll sets and had a nice rapport with Dwight Howard. Smith is basically the last man standing at power forward and should see major minutes for the next couple games until Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) can return. He'll be a must-start option until further notice. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • 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
  • 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
    Friday, 8:30 pm
  • 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

    Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Blazers on Friday night.

    Josh Smith will slide into the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves, with Donatas Motiejunas (back) unavailable.

    Advice: With Motiejunas and Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) out, and Dwight Howard on a minutes limit tonight, J Smoov is going to get all the run he can handle in a very favorable matchup with the Wolves. He looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Dewayne Dedmon (left ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: It appears that Dedmon suffered a setback when he returned to action on Wednesday, and he could be looking at additional time on the sidelines. Channing Frye will have the opportunity to slide back into the starting lineup tonight, but he can only be viewed as a 3-point specialist in extremely deep leagues.

  • 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

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) a game-time decision
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game vs. the Trail Blazers.

    Advice: Knight has missed the past seven games, so if he is able to go, he'll likely have his minutes held in check, as his conditioning is likely not where it needs to be. Owners will need to check back for another update closer to tip-off, but with 13 games being played tonight, Knight is not necessarily a must-start guy in standard leagues. 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
    Friday, 8:59 am
  • Borrego praises Dewayne Dedmon's defense
    Magic head coach James Borrego praised Dewayne Dedmon's effort on the defensive end during a recent interview.

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

    Suns' head coach Jeff Hornacek said he is hopeful that Brandon Knight (ankle) will be able to return to the lineup for Friday's game vs. Portland.

    Advice: Knight was running sprints, and played some one-on-one during Thursday's practice, and the Suns are currently listing him as the dreaded game-time decision. Owners will need to check back closer to Friday's tip, but if he is able to go, Marcus Morris' run with the starting unit will more than likely come to an end. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    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.

    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

    Rodney Stuckey (calf) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: This will be Stuckey's second consecutive game on the sidelines (and he missed most of a third), and we'll be considering him questionable for Sunday's game vs. Dallas. C.J.

    Thaddeus Young (knee) has been listed as out for Friday's game against the Cavaliers and doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

    Advice: An MRI on Young's left knee revealed a strain, so the Nets can breathe a sigh of relief as this one looked worse. Bojan Bogdanovic, Joe Johnson, Mason Plumlee, and Cory Jefferson will get the biggest fantasy boost while Young is out for Friday and likely Sunday. 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

  • 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

    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

  • Josh Smith plays 24 minutes vs. Pelicans
    Josh Smith played 24 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday with nine points, four rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He did go to the locker room briefly, but returned moments later. Smith is likely going to play minutes in the mid-20s going forward and his opportunities to score may also go down. He'll be worth owning in all points leagues, but his fantasy value in standard leagues is likely going to fall with his sub-par shooting. Rotoworld.com

  • 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.

  • 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
    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

  • Dewayne Dedmon quiet in return
    Dewayne Dedmon returned from a three-game absence due to a sprained ankle on Wednesday, but didn't score.

    Advice: He did have seven rebounds, a steal and a block, but with Nikola Vucevic healthy, it's going to be tough for Dedmon to sustain much consistency. Rotoworld.com

  • Thaddeus Young (left knee) out for game
    Thaddeus Young suffered a hyperextended left knee on Wednesday and will not return.

    Advice: X-rays were negative and he will likely have an MRI on Thursday. To clarify, a hyperextended knee means his joint just went past where it's normally supposed to go, so this isn't a specific diagnosis. We should know more on Thursday, but Young could miss time. It'll be Bojan Bogdanovic, Joe Johnson and Cory Jefferson stepping up. Young finished with 11 points and four boards in 23 minutes, and could miss time with this injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Thaddeus Young hurts left leg on Wednesday
    Thaddeus Young suffered an apparent left leg injury on Wednesday and went to the locker room.

    Advice: He laid on the court for 10 seconds or so before the Nets had to commit a foul. Young could have suffered a number of injuries with most of his leg twisting. He was able to walk back to the locker room under his own power. Stay tuned for an update. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • 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
    Wednesday, 3:29 pm
  • 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

  • Dewayne Dedmon will start on Wednesday
    Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) will start against the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He should be ready to go with his minutes in the 20s. With his return, Channing Frye is at risk of losing playing time. Dedmon is capable of being a double-double guy with some blocks, so keep an eye on him. He's still not worth owning in most leagues. 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

  • 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
    Wednesday, 10:01 am
  • 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. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:31 am
  • Rodney Stuckey (calf) will not play Wednesday
    An MRI revealed that Rodney Stuckey has a calf strain, and he will not be able to play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Advice: This is a tough blow for the Pacers, and it's starting to look unlikely that Stuckey will be able to play on Thursday vs. the Bucks as well. C.J. Watson dropped 23 points in Stuckey's absence on Monday, and he should be considered the primary beneficiary of this news and is worth a look in daily leagues. We will pass along any additional updates regarding Stuckey as soon as we know more. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:09 am
  • Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) is doubtful Wednesday
    Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) is unlikely to play on Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Dedmon has missed three straight games now, and it looks like the Magic will continue to be cautious on Wednesday. If Dedmon can't give it a go tonight, expect Andrew Nicholson, Channing Frye (illness) and Kyle O'Quinn to be in the mix for more minutes, though none of these players are viable options in standard leagues.

  • 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

  • Damian Lillard's 29 pts aren't enough Tuesday
    Damian Lillard scored a team-high 29 points vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, sinking 9-of-21 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with six 3-pointers, seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block.

    Advice: Lillard is shooting just 43.3 percent in March, but he's still averaging 20.3 points and 2.1 triples. He'll be leaned on even more if LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) and Nicolas Batum (back) miss any more games, so fantasy owners can sleep soundly with Lillard locked into their lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:51 pm
  • 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
    Tuesday, 10:25 pm
  • 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
    Tuesday, 10:22 pm
  • 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

  • Kawhi Leonard's stat-stuffing not enough Tues
    Kawhi Leonard racked up 19 points, nine rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block vs. Mavericks on Tuesday, finishing the Spurs' road loss without any turnovers in 36 minutes.

    Advice: He's averaging more than three steals per game since mid-March and his fantasy value is soaring along with his confidence. It's scary to think what the 23-year-old Leonard will be capable of in his prime, but he's already a game-changing talent who is anchoring the Spurs' hopes for back-to-back championships. Follow the link below to read Kirk Goldsberry's timely "love letter to Kawhi's defense." 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
    Tuesday, 8:37 pm
  • 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
    Tuesday, 8:31 pm
  • Josh Smith (ankle) probable Wednesday vs. NO
    Josh Smith (ankle) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Smith was productive in his 29 minutes of action on Monday, despite dealing with a minor ankle sprain, so we fully expect him to give it a go on Wednesday. Dwight Howard (knee) is also expected to return to action on Wednesday, and it'll be interesting to see how/if he affects Smith’s value. Rotoworld.com

  • Damian Lillard won't use fatigue as excuse
    Damian Lillard refused to use fatigue as an excuse for the Blazers' recent struggles.

    Advice: "I’m fine," Lillard said. "I would tell you if I was worn down or [fatigued]. I got to play better. I don’t want to blame a four-game losing streak on, ‘I’m tired’ or ‘this is hurting or that’s hurting.’" With Nicolas Batum (back) and LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) hurting and unlikely for Tuesday's game, Lillard doesn't really have the luxury to consider a rest day with the Blazers fighting for a higher seed out West. If both Aldrige and Batum are indeed unavailable Tuesday, Lillard is going to have a lot of responsibilities on offense. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:51 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey (calf) questionable Wednesday
    Rodney Stuckey (calf) did not practice on Tuesday, and he is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: If Stuckey is unable to go on Wednesday, expect C.J. Watson to pick up most of his minutes. Watson was able to put up 23 points with a full line on Monday with Stuckey out, so he'll be worth a look as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues if Stuckey is indeed unavailable Wednesday. Stay tuned. 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

  • Long Range Shawty: Josh Smith makes four 3s
    Josh Smith made four 3-pointers and 7-of-14 from the field for 18 points against the Pacers on Monday with five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 29 minutes.

    Advice: He used to call himself Mid-Range Shawty, but Smith was hanging on the 3-point line while James Harden kept drawing double- and triple-teams. He was a little banged up due to an ankle injury, but he should continue to get extended run until Dwight Howard gets back. Smith is worth starting in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    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) will not play against the Warriors 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

    Updating a previous item, Josh Smith (ankle) went through shootaround and expects to play on Monday against the Pacers.

    Advice: Smith is listed as questionable, but he sounds a lot closer to probable, and that's good news for his owners and for the Rockets. With Terrence Jones, Kostas Papanikolaou and Dwight Howard all sidelined, Smith and Donatas Motiejunas should see a ton of minutes down low. Rotoworld.com

    Marcus Morris flirted with a triple-double during Sunday's 98-92 win over the Mavericks, scoring 11 points with 11 boards, seven assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

    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. Even though Knight's return would likely see Morris shift to the bench, he is simply too hot to let go of right now. 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.

    Advice: There hasn't been a lot of information on Humphries' recovery and it's possible he sits out through the end of March.

    Luol Deng cooled off during Sunday's loss with six points on 3-of-7 shooting, four rebounds and three assists in just 28 minutes of action.

    Advice: Deng's minutes were down due to the lopsided score, with only Dwyane Wade (12 points) and Goran Dragic (12 points) exceeding the 30-minute mark. He was averaging 16.7 points on 62.5 percent shooting in Miami's previous three games, and remains a solid late-middle round fantasy option when healthy. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He made 8-of-14 shots, including one 3-pointer, and the steals padded his league-leading average of 2.2 per game. Leonard's mid-season struggles with a hand injury are becoming a distant memory as he carries fantasy owners through the fantasy playoffs with phenomenal all-around production.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Marcus Morris scores 17 points with 10 boards
    Marcus Morris finally got it going against the Rockets on Saturday with 17 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: This was the production we were expecting since the Brandon Knight (ankle) injury. Morris should continue to log minutes and get shots in the first team, so he's worth owning in standard leagues. Knight still hasn't practiced yet and could miss another game or two. Although, if Morris is still on the wire, most of his value is probably behind him. Rotoworld.com
