  • Jared Dudley has awful shot in win
    Jared Dudley returned from his kneecap injury on Thursday, scoring two points with one rebound, one assist and one turnover.

    Advice: He had the worst shot you'll see all season with a backwards shot in the corner. We know that doesn't make sense, so click the link below to check it out. Dudley can be left on the wire in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • O.J. Mayo scores three points in 13 minutes
    O.J. Mayo returned to action against the Pacers on Thursday, scoring three points with one rebound, four assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He didn't look too bad considering his hamstring issue has bothered him for most of the post-break run. Still, Mayo is likely going to have a 20-minute cap for the next week or so. Keep him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Watson looks great off the bench
    C.J. Watson served as the sixth man against the Bucks on Thursday with 23 points, seven boards, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 4-of-9 from the field and 13-of-15 from the field.

    Advice: His minutes jumped back up after playing just 19 on Wednesday. Watson has slid right into Rodney Stuckey's role while the guard deals with a calf injury, but Stuckey could be back on Sunday. If Watson is still floating on the wire, he probably only has one more game of decent value headed his way. Rotoworld.com

  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Thursday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Thursday against the Pacers.

    Advice: Mayo was limited to just six minutes when he returned to action on Tuesday, but head coach Jason Kidd said he'll "add minutes" for Mayo tonight. That's a pretty vague quote, but we doubt Mayo would see his minutes much higher than the 20s. With a tough matchup against the Pacers, and a lot of uncertainty around how much floor time Mayo will see tonight, he's not a great option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley (knee) will play Thursday
    Jared Dudley (knee) will play Thursday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Dudley had some good stretches during the season, but his play has really fallen off during the month of March with averages of just 2.5 points and 3.0 rebounds per game on 22.2 percent shooting from the field. He'll likely be eased back into the rotation, so it's safe to leave Dudley on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Gary Neal (ankle) will not play on Friday
    Gary Neal (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: With Neal unavailable, the Wolves will again be forced to give heavy minutes to Andrew Wiggins, Chase Budinger, and Lorenzo Brown. With no clear return date in site, Neal belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Garnett (knee) doubtful Friday vs. HOU
    Kevin Garnett (knee) is doubtful to play Friday vs. Houston.

    Advice: It's a road game, so it's very likely Garnett will be wearing a suit on Friday. Expect Gorgui Dieng to get all the run he can handle, with Adreian Payne seeing his minutes in the 20s. Garnett belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Barea (ankle) out Friday vs. San Antonio
    J.J. Barea (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: With Barea unavailable, Devin Harris will have the opportunity for some extended minutes. Harris is averaging 8.9 points, 2.1 assists, 1.1 three-pointers and 0.8 steals per game through the month of March, so his value is limited to deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Thabo Sefolosha feeling fine after return
    Thabo Sefolosha (calf) said he felt fine in his return on Wednesday night.

    Advice: Sefolosha played just seven minutes against the Magic in his first game since late-January, but was able to get through the game without any setbacks. With the playoffs on the horizon, the Hawks are likely to be cautious with Sefolosha's minutes so he can be left on the waiver wire in most fantasy formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Channing Frye returned to action Wednesday
    Channing Frye returned to action off the bench on Wednesday with two points in six minutes.

    Advice: He is going to lose a lot of playing time to Dewayne Dedmon. Frye can be ignored in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:46 am
  • 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

  • Elijah Millsap starts for Gordon Hayward
    Elijah Millsap started for Gordon Hayward (shoulder) and hit 4-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, eight boards, two assists and a steal in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Not a terrible line, but not one that will really grab your attention, either. Trey Burke also started and had 22 points, while Joe Ingles came off the bench for 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, three steals and a 3-pointer on 4-of-10 shooting. As long as Hayward is out, we're guessing Burke could be the man to own for scoring, while Millsap and Ingles will be better bets for the intangibles. Rodney Hood was also out with an illness, which helped the aforementioned players. Rotoworld.com

  • Nik 'Sauce Castillo' Stauskas drops 13 points
    Nik Stauskas scored 13 points on 5-of-7 from the field against the Suns on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes.

    Advice: For those in the nickname game, "Sauce Castillo" was trending on Twitter in Sacramento, which is one of the best nicknames we've seen in a while. He's bounced back from his weak sauce February that included him making just 11.1 percent from the field, but he still has a lot of work to do. While his nickname alone puts him on the map, he can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:40 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
  • Michael Beasley plays 14 minutes in win
    Michael Beasley came off the bench and played just 14 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with six points, two steals and a block.

    Advice: Yuck. Henry Walker, James Ennis and Tyler Johnson got the minutes tonight, so it looks like the bright light that was shining on Beasley earlier in the day is officially burnt out. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:49 pm
  • Ricky Ledo scores 12 points for Knicks
    Ricky Ledo came off the bench for 12 points, three rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-14 shooting in Wednesday's brutal loss.

    Advice: The Knicks are so bad that Ledo was one of their leading scorers tonight. He could have a good game or two, but it's hard to imagine him doing enough consistently to be worth owning. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:06 pm
  • C.J. Watson slows down in 19 minutes
    C.J. Watson played 19 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday with 11 points, two rebounds, two assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: It wasn't as great as his line from Monday with a 23-point game in that one, but Watson still did a fine job with steals. His fantasy value hinges on Rodney Stuckey's calf, but he's still worth a look in daily leagues for Thursday with the Pacers being one of two teams playing (Bucks). Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:09 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha finally returns for Hawks
    Thabo Sefolosha finally returned from his calf injury and played seven scoreless minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's not going to have any fantasy value, but the Hawks will need his defense and experience in the playoffs. He hadn't played since Jan. 30. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:55 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
    Wednesday, 5:03 pm
  • Michael Beasley will start on Wednesday
    Michael Beasley will enter the starting lineup on Wednesday vs. the Celtics in place of Hassan Whiteside (hand).

    Advice: The Heat are also missing Dwyane Wade (knee) and Chris Andersen (calf) tonight, so Beasley should be very busy on the offensive end. He is averaging 9.0 points, 4.4 boards and 1.3 assists in 24.3 minutes through 12 games in March, but he should see a nice bump in production in a critical matchup with the Celtics. Owners in daily leagues should give him a look. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:04 pm
  • Gary Neal won't play on Wednesday
    Gary Neal (ankle) will not play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He doesn't have a timetable to return and Neal could miss more games. Keep him on the wire. Meanwhile, Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger will help carry the bench -- Brown could start again tonight, though. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Garnett (knee) out on Wednesday
    Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play on Wednesday.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Mar. 7 and the move to acquire him for Thaddeus Young is making less sense by the day because the team has said it's not tanking. Justin Hamilton benefits most while Adreian Payne could play more, too. Garnett could be dropped everywhere, obviously. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley is questionable for Thursday
    Jared Dudley (knee) is questionable to play against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: He did go through practice, but that doesn't mean much because he went through practice on Monday and missed Tuesday's game. Dudley can remain on the wire in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:06 pm
  • O.J. Mayo is probable to play Thursday
    O.J. Mayo is probable to play against the Pacers on Thursday after going through practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: He played just six minutes on Tuesday in his return to the lineup. The Bucks are unlikely to play Mayo more than 10-12 minutes on Thursday, so keep him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:04 pm
  • Michael Beasley likely to start on Wednesday
    Michael Beasley will likely enter the starting lineup vs. the Celtics on Wednesday if Hassan Whiteside (hand) can't play.

    Advice: Beasley has averages of 9.0 points, 4.4 boards and 1.3 assists in 24.3 minutes per game during the month of March, so he could see a nice bump in production if he is forced to play big minutes. Chris Andersen (calf) is also questionable which only improves Beasley's outlook, so owners in daily leagues looking for a cheap plug-and-play should give him a look. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:41 am
  • Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will play on Wednesday
    Thabo Sefolosha (calf) went through shootaround and will play on Wednesday vs. the Magic as expected.

    Advice: After a 23-game absence, Sefolosha is finally back to bolster Atlanta's bench rotation. Expect the Hawks to ease him back into action tonight, and just to be clear, he still belongs on the wire in just about all leagues at the moment. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:20 am
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) scoreless in return
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) returned to action on Tuesday, going scoreless with two rebounds and one assist in six minutes vs. the Heat.

    Advice: He didn't check in until the end of the third quarter, presumably because Jason Kidd wanted more offensive weapons on the court with his Bucks trailing by seven points. Mayo has suffered a few setbacks with his hamstring in recent weeks and fantasy owners should view him with skepticism as long as he's playing limited minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:04 pm
  • Michael Beasley starts w/ Whiteside ailing
    With Hassan Whiteside (hand) being stitched up by team trainers, Michael Beasley slid into Miami's starting lineup to begin the second half on Tuesday.

    Advice: Beasley finished with four points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes, but he also lost a critical jumpball which led to Milwaukee's game-winning 3-pointer. He's solidified himself as a reliable part of Miami's rotation but he's yet to cause a ripple in fantasy leagues. Whiteside's status for Wednesday's game is in real doubt, but Beasley is best suited to use in very deep leagues or daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:02 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) a game-time decision
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

    Advice: The Bucks will make a decision on Mayo after he goes through warm-ups, but even if he is able to go, he'll likely be on a minutes restriction which will really limit his upside. Mayo belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:30 pm
  • Jared Dudley (knee) out Tuesday vs. Miami
    Jared Dudley (knee) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Dudley is inching his way closer to making a return after going through a full practice on Monday, but today will not be the day. He wasn't playing well before going down, and he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:29 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha (calf) probable for Wednesday
    Thabo Sefolosha (calf) went through a full practice on Tuesday, and has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Sefolosha has missed the past 23 games, so he'll likely be eased back into the rotation. However, as long as Kyle Korver is healthy, Sefolosha belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:35 pm
  • Gary Neal (ankle) doubtful for Wednesday
    Gary Neal (ankle) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: If Neal is unable to go on Wednesday, expect Chase Budinger, Lorenzo Brown, and Sean Kilpatrick to get some extended run. Budinger has been playing very well lately, scoring in double figures in his last six outings while offering some assists, steals, and 3-pointers, and he's worth a look in standard leagues with the Wolves running with just seven healthy bodies in the rotation.

  • J.J. Barea will miss Tuesday's game vs Spurs
    J.J. Barea (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Tuesday.

    Advice: "He’s out tonight for sure," Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle said. "And my understanding is it’s more of a day-to-day thing. Not serious. But he turned it over the other day in practice. He’s not ready to go yet." Devin Harris is in line to see a minutes boost against the Spurs, but he isn't a lock to play as he recovers from an illness, so we may get a look at Raymond Felton if Harris experiences a setback before tip-off.

  • Thabo Sefolosha inching closer to return
    Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer said Thabo Sefolosha (calf) is getting closer to a return.

    Advice: "Thabo is very close," Budenholzer said. "He had a very good workout today. I think we’ll see how his calf responds to that. If everything is in a good place. I’ll just leave it as he is very, very close." While Thabo's return will put a dent in the fantasy value of Kent Bazemore and Dennis Schroder, he can be left on waivers in most fantasy leagues as the Hawks are likely to limit his minutes after a two-month layoff. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:20 am
  • 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
    Monday, 8:57 pm
  • Ledo plays just nine minutes on Monday
    Ricky Ledo played just nine minutes on Monday and had only one rebound to his stat line.

    Advice: Ledo certainly looked lost out there and wasn't thrown into the fire with Alexey Shved (ribs) like many had hoped for. Look for the Knicks to slowly step up his minutes and he should be watched closely down the stretch. Shved could return as soon as Wednesday's game. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:06 pm
  • C.J. Watson scores 23 off the bench
    C.J. Watson filled in for Rodney Stuckey (calf) on Monday against the Rockets, scoring 23 points with two rebounds, five assists, two steals and four 3-pointers on 7-of-10 from the field.

    Advice: It's a nice game for Watson in 30 minutes and he could have another chance to put up numbers on Wednesday. Stuckey was ruled out around an 90 minutes before the game today, so there's a good chance he'll be ready to return. Watson isn't a great speculative add until we get more info on Stuckey, but congrats if you streamed him today. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:48 pm
  • 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

  • Kevin Garnett (knee) won't play Monday
    Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play against the Jazz on Monday.

  • Jared Dudley questionable for Tuesday
    Jared Dudley (knee) is questionable to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: He went through practice on Monday and could return after missing most of the second half due to an issue with his kneecap. Dudley would take minutes away from Ersan Ilyasova, but Ghosface Ilya is still worth owning in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 12:37 pm
  • O.J. Mayo is questionable for Tuesday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: Even if he does return, the Bucks are unlikely to give him more than minutes in the teens. Mayo is not worth owning in almost any league. Tyler Ennis should remain in the rotation while Jerryd Bayless gets some extra run. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 12:36 pm
  • J.J. Barea (ankle) already ruled out for Tues
    J.J. Barea (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's expected to miss multiple games due to his ankle sprain from Saturday's practice. Barea going down would have given more minutes to Devin Harris (illness), but he is also not 100 percent due to an illness. Raymond Felton could get some run as a backup for the Mavs. Rotoworld.com

    Kevin Garnett (knee) is doubtful to play against the Jazz on Monday.

    Advice: It's a road game, so Garnett is almost a lock to not play for his one. With KG and a slew of others out in the frontcourt, expect Gorgui Dieng to be very busy. Plus, Adreian Payne and Chase Budinger will get some extra run. Rotoworld.com

  • Thabo Sefolosha (calf) close to a return
    Thabo Sefolosha (calf) is "very, very close" to a return.

    Advice: His 6-8 week timetable is almost up from his injury back in January. The Hawks gave most of his minutes to Dennis Schroder and Kent Bazemore, so expect those guys to play a little less when the Hawks have a full roster. Although, they'll be resting players a lot more. Keep Sefolosha on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Garnett again questionable for Monday
    Kevin Garnett (knee) is questionable to play on Monday vs. Utah.

    Advice: There is just no incentive to play Garnett right now, and it doesn't sound like he's close to returning since we never got an update on his second opinion after he was examined last week. Adreian Payne, who is averaging 8.7 points and 6.7 rebounds as a starting power forward, should once again get the call. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Morris flirts with a triple-double
    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

  • Gary Neal sprains left ankle, will not return
    Gary Neal sprained his left ankle on Sunday and he's not expected to travel with the Wolves for Monday's game in Utah.

    Advice: Neal just returned from a four-game absence and it's possible that this latest issue will cost him some time on the shelf. Expect Chase Budinger to see an uptick in minutes off the bench for the shorthanded Wolves if Neal misses any additional action. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Barea (ankle) has no timetable to return
    Head coach Rick Carlisle said that J.J. Barea's ankle injury isn't too serious, but he said there is no timetable for his return.

    Advice: Barea sprained his ankle at practice Saturday and isn't even traveling with the team, so we will go ahead and consider him doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs. We will track Barea's status closely, but it's safe to drop him in most leagues. Devin Harris will get some more ball-handling responsibilities off the bench following this news and is worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play on Sunday vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: The Wolves have no reason to play Garnett at less than 100 percent, and we wouldn't count on Garnett playing on Monday vs. the Jazz either. Adreian Payne will draw the start again, but Chase Budinger has emerged as the primary beneficiary off the bench for the Wolves. Rotoworld.com

  • Channing Frye (illness) out Sunday vs. DEN
    Channing Frye (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: With both Frye and Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) out for this one, Kyle O'Quinn and Andrew Nicholson will see their minutes increased with Nikola Vucevic getting all the run he can handle. O'Quinn is worth a look as a streamer option for his ability to rack up the shot blocking totals. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 2:06 pm
  • Jared Dudley (knee) and Mayo (hamstring) out
    Jared Dudley (knee) and O.J. Mayo (hamstring) remain out indefinitely.

    Advice: Neither guy will play on Sunday, of course, and their absence leaves extra playing time available for Tyler Ennis, Jerryd Bayless, Ersan Ilyasova and others. Ilyasova is the best bet for reliable value, though Bayless is also worth a glance for deep-league owners seeking guard help. Dudley and Mayo both belong on the waiver wire until a return date is announced. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Kevin Garnett (knee) questionable for Sunday
    Kevin Garnett (knee) is questionable to play for Sunday against the Hornets.

    Advice: He has been questionable for each of the last four games and hasn't played in any of them. Garnett hasn't played on the road yet, but he does have a small chance to play on Sunday. Regardless, keep him on the wire. If he does play, Chase Budinger and Adreian Payne would lose some minutes. Rotoworld.com

    Gary Neal (hand) is probable to play against the Hornets.

    Advice: He has been out since last Sunday due to a hand injury and it sounds like he'll be back for the home game. The Wolves were so thin on Thursday that they signed Sean Kilpatrick while Lorenzo Brown also played 26 minutes. If Neal can go, he'll be worth a look in deeper leagues. If he's on the wire, you can probably keep him their with the Wolves being extra cautious with injuries. Rotoworld.com

  • Thabo Sefolosha (calf) out for Sunday
    Thabo Sefolosha (calf) is out against the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: He is on the tail end of his 6-8 week prognosis for a strained calf back in January. The Hawks have given his minutes to Dennis Schroder and Kent Bazemore, who both played well in that past couple months. While Sefolosha may cause those two to lose playing time, Bazemore and Schroder should see more minutes with the Hawks having their magic number at three to clinch home court and ready to rest their starters.

  • J.J. Barea (ankle) out for Sunday night
    J.J. Barea sprained his left ankle at practice on Saturday and will not play against the Suns on Sunday.

    Advice: He didn't even travel, so he could miss Tuesday at home against the Spurs. With Barea out, Devin Harris should play more and Monta Ellis should get a little more ball-handling chances. Barea is not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Kostas Papanikolaou (ankle) will not play vs. the Suns on Saturday.

    Advice: He has been on the sidelines since Feb. 21 and there is still no known timetable for a return, so owners in almost all leagues can monitor his progress from the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Cuban: Ricky Ledo could be a steal for Knicks
    Mavericks owner Mark Cuban praised the Knicks for taking a chance on Ricky Ledo.

    Advice: "Ricky deserves to be in the NBA,’’ Cuban said. "He is incredibly talented. Because we are trying to compete for a championship, we really weren’t in a position to give him minutes to help his development. I think with playing time he will get better and better and could be a steal for the Knicks.’’ Ledo has an excellent opportunity to carve out a role on the lowly Knicks, and he still has a lot of potential. With Tim Hardaway Jr. struggling with a wrist injury, owners in deeper leagues should monitor Ledo closely in the coming week. Rotoworld.com

  • Beasley flirts with triple-double vs. Nuggets
    Michael Beasley flirted with a low-grade triple-double on Friday against the Nuggets, scoring nine points on 4-of-13 shooting (including a three) with eight rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block in 34 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Beasley hasn't been a great standard league asset because of poor percentages and just 1.8 combined steals, threes and blocks over his last seven games. There is a chance he mops up for the Heat down the stretch of the season, but with the Heat rising in the standings and not falling -- that chance lessens by the game. Rotoworld.com

  • Thabo Sefolosha (calf) out Friday vs. OKC
    Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will remain sidelined for Friday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: With both Thabo and Kyle Korver (nose) out for Friday's game, Kent Bazemore will get another game with the starting unit. He's averaging 9.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.0 assists, and 1.3 steals per game on 37.9 percent shooting as a starter for the Hawks, but with a tough matchup against OKC, he makes for a risky option in most leagues.

  • Jared Dudley (back) will not play on Friday
    Jared Dudley (back spasms) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Brooklyn, and he is currently without an official timetable to return.

    Advice: With Dudley out, Ersan Ilyasova will likely continue to see his minutes in the 30s, with Giannis Antetokounmpo getting all the run he can handle. Dudley belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:26 am
  • Mayo (hamstring), Dudley (back) out Friday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) and Jared Dudley (back) have been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Nets, and both players are without an official timetable to return.

    Advice: With both Mayo and Dudley unavailable, Giannis Antetokounmpo will get all the run he can handle with Jerryd Bayless and Tyler Ennis seeing extending minutes off the bench. Bayless can be viewed as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues, but Ennis doesn't offer much value at all. Mayo and Dudley can be cut in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Fisher says Ledo will get a chance w/ Knicks
    Knicks' head coach Derek Fisher said that Ricky Ledo will have the opportunity to become a rotation player for the Knicks this season.

    Advice: "[Ledo's] here with us now. I’ll only be able to base my opinion on what he can do here. He just hasn’t gotten the chance. He’ll get the chance here," said Fisher. Ledo picked up a DNP-CD during Thursday's game against the Timberwolves, but Phil Jackson likes big guards, and at 6-foot-7, Ledo fits the description. He'll have to earn his minutes in New York, but with his competition going by the names of Shane Larkin and Langston Galloway, it'll be now or never for Ledo. However, until he becomes a steady rotation player for New York, Ledo belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: To make matters worse, Morris missed both attempts from the line to give him a true shooting percentage of 8.4. March has been a fiasco for his shooting, making just 33.3 percent from the field, which is even worse considering he's making 75.0 percent of his shots at the rim in that span. Awful shooting aside, Morris is still worth owning in standard leagues until Brandon Knight (ankle) gets back. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:48 pm
  • Ricky Ledo gets a DNP-CD
    Ricky Ledo was a DNP-CD on Thursday.

    Advice: He's apparently only on the team as an emergency guy. Ledo loves to be the guy making the plays for the Knicks and doesn't really share the ball, so maybe he'll have impress his coach before he gets some run. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:14 pm
  • Gary Neal (hand) will not play on Thursday
    Gary Neal (hand) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. New York.

    Advice: This will be Neal's fourth-straight game on the sidelines, and his absence will translate to more minutes for guys like Kevin Martin, Zach LaVine, and Chase Budinger. Budinger has scored in double figures in his previous three outings, so he's worth a look as a streamer option in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Ricky Ledo will be available Thursday vs. MIN
    Ricky Ledo will be available for Thursday's game vs. the Timberwolves, but head coach Derek Fisher would not commit to whether or not he will play.

    Advice: This is a situation that should be avoided in standard leagues. Ledo may or may not be able to carve out a role with the Knicks, but for now, owners can watch this situation develop from the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Garnett (knee) questionable Thursday
    Kevin Garnett (knee) is questionable to play Thursday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: If Garnett is again unable to go on Thursday, it will be his fifth consecutive game on the sidelines. Adreian Payne will be the primary beneficiary if Garnett is unable to go, and he's worth a look as a streamer option in deep leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    Knicks sign G Ricky Ledo.

    Advice: Ledo will join the Knicks on a 10-day deal as the 15th man on their roster. While Ledo can largely be ignored in standard fantasy leagues, he may see some time for the injury-depleted Knicks and is worth consideration in deeper fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Nik Stauskas scores 13, B-Mac injured
    Nik Stauskas came off the bench to hit 4-of-6 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, three rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: Stauskas could be in for more run with Ben McLemore suffering a right wrist injury tonight, but Andre Miller (and especially Anthony Morrow) look like better pickups to us. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:02 pm
  • Ricky Ledo added to the Knicks on 10-day deal
    The Knicks will sign Ricky Ledo to a 10-day deal.

    Advice: Oh yes. Ledo is a ball-dominant guy with a career usage rate of 30.5 in 16 games in the NBA. Of course, he's also made just 26.1 percent from the field. In his 26 games with the Texas Legends this year, Ledo averaged 15.1 points, 4.6 boards, 4.2 dimes, 1.4 steals and 1.2 treys on 44.6 percent from the field. Considering how thin the Knicks are right now, Ledo is actually on the radar in deep leagues off the bat. Rotoworld.com

  • Thabo Sefolosha (calf) targets return Sunday
    Thabo Sefolosha (calf) is targeting a return vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: He advanced to 3-of-3 workouts during Wednesday's practice and should return this weekend as long as there are no setbacks. Kent Bazemore and Shelvin Mack are currently filling in at SG with Kyle Korver (nose) out of commission, so Sefolosha's return will be eagerly welcomed by the top-seeded Hawks. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:57 pm
  • Channing Frye starts at PF w/ Dedmon out
    Channing Frye will return to Orlando's starting lineup with Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) out on Wednesday.

    Advice: Frye typically fares better when starting and it doesn't hurt that Tobias Harris (ankle) is also unavailable, freeing plenty of minutes at the forward spots. Dedmon is day-to-day with his injury, however, so anyone picking up Frye should prepare to cut him loose just as quickly. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:43 pm
  • Gary Neal (hand) won't play vs. Toronto
    Gary Neal (hand) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful so this shouldn't catch fantasy owners by surprise, and his absence means extra opportunities for Kevin Martin and Zach LaVine. Neal has had a few explosive scoring games for the Wolves but he belongs on the waiver wire until we see him producing. Rotoworld.com

  • Update: Elijah Millsap cleared to play
    Elijah Millsap (concussion) has been cleared to play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wow. With Andre Drummond being cleared to play on Monday following a Saturday concussion, Millsap becomes the second player in the past week to be cleared in less than two days following his Monday concussion. Still, Rodney Hood has been amazing and Millsap is not a lock for big minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Thabo Sefolosha (calf) completes 3-on-3 work
    Thabo Sefolosha (calf) went through some 3-on-3 work at practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: He suffered a calf strain back on Jan. 30 and was expected to be out 6-8 weeks, so he's within that target window right now. The Hawks could use Sefolosha right now with Kyle Korver out and the team likely to rest players through the season. Until Thabo gets back, it'll be Kent Bazemore getting minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:28 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) won't play Wednesday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is likely out for a while and the Bucks won't be rushing him back. Jerryd Bayless and Tyler Ennis will benefit most with Bayless holding much more fantasy value. Mayo can be dropped basically everywhere. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:34 am
  • Jared Dudley (back spasms) out for Wednesday
    Jared Dudley (back spasms) will not play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been on the injury report for a knee injury, so chances are we won't be seeing Dudley on the court anytime soon now that he has another injury. Since he went down last month, Ersan Ilyasova has really stepped up and is worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Kostas Papanikolaou (ankle) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Thursday as expected.

  • Beasley will sign for the rest of the season
    Michael Beasley's agent confirmed that he will sign with the Heat for the remainder of the season.

    Advice: We still don't know all the details of the deal, but the move makes a lot of sense for Miami. Beasley has posted averages of 9.5 points and 3.9 rebounds on 42.0 percent shooting from the field, and he was able to carve out a pretty decent role off the bench due to all the injuries in Miami. Beasley isn't on the radar in standard leagues at the moment, but owners in deeper leagues should monitor his progress, especially if the Heat suffer any more injuries. Rotoworld.com

  • Gary Neal (hand) is doubtful for Wednesday
    Gary Neal (hand) is doubtful to play vs. the Raptors on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Wolves will likely be shorthanded vs. the Raptors, meaning Andrew Wiggins, Kevin Martin and Chase Budinger will have their hands full on the wings tonight. Neal doesn't really fit into Minnesota's plans moving forward, and he belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) not with team Tuesday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday, as he's in Milwaukee receiving treatment.

    Advice: Mayo's hamstring has bothered him for weeks and he may have aggravated it in just seven minutes of action on Saturday. Whether he'll return for Wednesday's home game is unclear, but his inability to stay healthy rules him out as a fantasy option at this critical juncture of the season. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley (knee) questionable for Wed.
    Jared Dudley (knee) won't play vs. New Orleans on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's back in Milwaukee receiving treatment and Jason Kidd said that Dudley was "struggling to move" on Monday, so there are no guarantees that he'll return to the lineup for Wednesday's home game vs. the Spurs. Dudley had a few nice stretches this season but he now belongs on the wavier wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Elijah Millsap (concussion) out Wednesday
    Elijah Millsap (concussion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Washington.

    Advice: Millsap could be sidelined for as long as week as he recovers from his concussion, and Rodney Hood and Joe Ingles will be the primary beneficiaries with Millsap sidelined. Hood has been on fire, and is well worth a look in all leagues for those seeking some 3-point shooting. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Beasley likely to be retained by MIA
    Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra indicated that Michael Beasley will likely be signed for the remainder of the season when his second 10-day contract expires on Wednesday.

    Advice: Beasley has been decent for Miami this season, averaging 10.1 points and 4.0 rebounds on 43.0 percent shooting from the field. He can be viewed as a low-end guy in deep leagues, but Beasley has no business being on a roster in standard formats. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 12:23 pm
  • J.J. Barea (illness) misses practice Tuesday
    J.J. Barea (illness) did not participate in Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: We'll be considering Barea questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic, and if he's unable to go, Monta Ellis and Rajon Rondo would be forced into heavy minutes with Devin Harris (illness) also looking unlikely. Raymond Felton would have the opportunity to see some increased minutes off the bench, but he's not going to do enough on the stat sheet to matter in any league as a reserve for the Mavericks. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Elijah Millsap (concussion) may miss a week
    Elijah Millsap could be out anywhere from a few days to a week after suffering a concussion during Monday's game.

    Advice: With Millsap possibly looking at an extended absence, he should not be owned in any league. Rodney Hood and Joe Ingles will likely see their minutes increased with Millsap on the shelf, and Hood makes for an excellent pickup in standard leagues for those seeking some 3-point shooting.

    Kostas Papanikolaou (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. Orlando.

    Advice: Papanikolaou has been sidelined since February 21, and he remains without a clear return date. There's no reason to hang onto a guy with such little upside with the fantasy playoffs in full swing, so Papanikolaou should remain on the waiver wire in all formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley sent home to deal w/ knee injury
    Jared Dudley (knee) was sent home to receive treatment on his injury.

    Advice: Dudley "is struggling to move" according to coach Jason Kidd, and hopefully it's not a recurrence of what the veteran dealt with during his tenure with the Clippers. Dudley hasn't played more than 25 minutes since March 7, and he's been wildly ineffective all month with averages of just 2.5 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists on 22.2 percent shooting. Feel free to move on if you haven't already. Rotoworld.com

  • OJ Mayo (hamstring) sent home with injury
    OJ Mayo (hamstring) was sent home for treatment.

    Advice: Jason Kidd made the decision, and it doesn't sound like Mayo is close to returning after Kidd said the shooting guard is "struggling." Hamstring injuries tend to linger, and it sounds like Mayo may have come back too quickly from his latest aggravation. This is going to be an issue for the remainder of the season, leaving Mayo's upside severely capped in any format. Rotoworld.com
