    • Doug McDermott (knee) making progress
      Doug McDermott (knee) is making good progress, and has ramped up his activities in the past week.

      Advice: He has been shooting, riding a stationary bicycle, and will now start running in water when the stitches from last Saturday's arthroscopic surgery to remove a small meniscus in his right knee are taken out. McDermott said that he hopes to beat his timetable and make it back to the court soon, and we will be sure to monitor his status closely and provide any updates as needed. However, he is still far off of the radar in standard leagues and can be left on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Ed Davis scores season-high 18 points
      Ed Davis scored a season-high 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting with nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 32 minutes in Friday's 104-103 loss to the Thunder.

      Advice: Davis has been on the side of a milk carton lately and this is a much-needed game to bring him back onto watch lists. It's going to take more than one good game to get our support as an add in standard formats, but if you have dead weight and want to take a stab on a turnaround there is some upside to latch onto.

    • Robinson doesn't do much in his 27 minutes
      Thomas Robinson managed just two points, six rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Spurs.

      Advice: Robinson is coming off a 15 and 16 night against the Bucks, but he's prone to these type of outcomes and owners should look for consistency before considering an add. Rotoworld.com

    • Kaman quiet against the Spurs on Friday
      Chris Kaman scored just six points with five boards, one assist and one steal in 18 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Spurs.

      Advice: The Spurs had no problem containing Kaman and he has yet to make good on any of the opportunity presented by Robin Lopez's long-term hand injury. There's a long way to go with that, however, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the double-doubles come down the road. Rotoworld.com

    • Blake posts versatile line with Batum out
      Steve Blake logged 36 minutes off the bench in Friday's triple-overtime win, scoring 10 points on 3-of-7 shooting with five rebounds, four assists and two threes.

      Advice: Blake is worth a look as a low-end play while Batum is out following his hard fall on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:48 pm
    • Tayshaun Prince does little as a starter
      Tayshaun Prince scored eight points with one rebound and one block in 24 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

      Advice: It's the quintessential Prince line tonight as he started for Tony Allen (eye). Prince can be left on the wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:45 pm
    • X-rays negative on Beno Udrih
      X-rays were negative on Beno Udrih's right index finger.

      Advice: He was in a lot of pain and did not return. Udrih doesn't sound like he's going to miss much time, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues. He was playing well, scoring 15 points with one assist and two steals in 20 minutes. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:43 pm
    • Aaron Brooks scores 17 in 32 minutes
      Aaron Brooks scored 17 points in a 103-97 win at Memphis on Friday with one rebound, four assists, three 3-pointers and four turnovers.

      Advice: He had three turnovers before scoring or handing out an assists and he really turned it on in the third quarter. Derrick Rose only has an illness, so he should be ready to roll on Monday. Brooks can be left on the wire. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:41 pm
    • Nikola Mirotic scores 27 points on 100.0 eFG%
      Nikola Mirotic made all six attempts from behind the arc on Friday against the Grizzlies with 27 points, eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 30 minutes.

      Advice: That's good for a 100.0 effective field goal percentage. Mirotic has been a monster in his past two games, but coach Tom Thibodeau has already said he's not going to take away minutes from their big three in the front court. Taj Gibson (ankle) won't be out long, so the rookie only has short-term value. Rotoworld.com

    • End of the road for Kris Humphries?
      Kris Humphries saw just 13 minutes in Friday's win over the Heat, scoring four points on 2-of-7 shooting with two rebounds and one assist.

      Advice: Nene played 26 minutes off the bench and scored 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting, so perhaps he's healthy and ready to knock Humphries to the wire. With little upside to speak of, Humphries' owners shouldn't be afraid to move on. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:32 pm
    • Nene scores 20 points in 26 minutes on Friday
      Nene hit 8-of-10 shots for 20 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes on Friday against the Heat.

      Advice: Kris Humphries played just 13 minutes and perhaps Nene is ready to take the lion's share of minutes back at power forward. He has health issues and hasn't been great this season, but Nene is worth a look if you need a big. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:05 pm
    • Butler scores eight points with no threes
      Rasual Butler did not hit a three on Friday, finishing with eight points on 3-of-7 shooting with six rebounds in 27 minutes.

      Advice: The minutes are a good sign with Paul Pierce logging 32 minutes, and on the season he has been a late-round value, but he's shooting way over his head and the regression will likely keep him in a deep-league position. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:03 pm
    • Bang the Drummond: James Johnson throws 1 down
      James Johnson had one of the best dunks of the year on Andre Drummond on Friday, finishing with 12 points, eight rebounds, two assists and one block in 29 minutes.

      Advice: "That was nasty, right? I cocked that joint back and banged on him," Johnson said. Yes, James. Yes it was. Johnson also picked up some playing time and could see more action with Landry Fields (head) getting hurt. He hasn't seen much playing time, but his upside makes him worth watching. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:48 pm
    • Mike Miller starts, hits 7-of-8 threes in win
      Mike Miller (concussion) returned to action and hit 7-of-8 shots (all threes) in the Cavs' 95-91 win over the Nets on Friday, finishing with 21 points and two rebounds in 34 minutes.

      Advice: Miller is capable of shooting explosions like these but at his age and with his injury history, along with the empty stat lines he's bound to produce, owners should make him do it again before moving the needle. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:47 pm
    • Evan Turner has a boring start in win
      Evan Turner scored 10 points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 27 minutes against the Wolves on Friday.

      Advice: While he did add his eighth block of the season tonight, Turner was fairly ordinary in the win. He's probably not going to start much longer with Marcus Smart ready to roll. Turner doesn't have enough upside to grab in standard leagues, but give him a look in points formats. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:09 pm
    • Tayshaun Prince will start Friday vs. Chicago
      Tayshaun Prince will shift into the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Bulls with Tony Allen (eye) sidelined.

      Advice: Prince is averaging 7.2 points and 3.3 rebounds with the starting unit this season, so he's not going to be worth using in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 4:53 pm
    • McDermott (knee) hopes to return in 3-6 weeks
      Doug McDermott (knee) is hopeful that he'll be able to return in 3-6 weeks.

      Advice: McDermott has been limited to walking, riding a stationary bike, and shooting. However, he was not a part of the rotation before going down, so his return will be meaningless to owners in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Evan Turner starting for Boston on Friday
      Evan Turner will start at point guard against the Wolves on Friday.

      Advice: Marcus Smart (Achilles) might not be at 100 percent, so there should be a lot of playing time headed Turner's way. Coach Brad Stevens has the Celtics running at the fastest pace in the league, so there is a nice opportunity for Turner in a daily league. His value in season-long formats is also intriguing, but his upside is not as high as Smart's. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 2:39 pm
    • Report: Mike Miller will start at SG on Fri.
      Mike Miller will reportedly be inserted into the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Nets, sending Shawn Marion to the bench.

      Advice: This is an interesting move, and it'll be interesting to see how Miller's body holds up with the extended minutes. Miller is coming into this game with averages of 1.5 points and 2.1 rebounds over 12 minutes of action, so owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with the injury-prone veteran. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:18 am
    • Mike Miller will be activated Friday vs. BKN
      Mike Miller (concussion) will be activated for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

      Advice: Miller will likely return to a reserve role off the bench, and he can't be considered a viable option in most leagues. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 8:33 am
    • Thibodeau heaps praise on Nikola Mirotic
      Tom Thibodeau heaped praise on Nikola Mirotic following a solid effort during the Bulls win over the Knicks on Thursday.

      Advice: "[Nikola] made a lot of great plays, particularly in the first half," said Thibodeau. "He made shots and made plays off the dribble, he hustled. I was very pleased with the way he played. We did not play a great game, but we found a way to win in the end." Mirotic busted out of his mini-slump on Thursday, and if Taj Gibson (ankle) is unavailable for Friday's game, expect Mirotic to again get a healthy heaping of minutes and be a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 6:29 am
    • Nikola Mirotic fills in quite well
      Nikola Mirotic excelled off the bench on Thursday with 13 points, one rebound, three assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Knicks.

      Advice: He stepped right in to Taj Gibson's (ankle) role and absorbed 100 percent of the big-man bench minutes. Gibson is looking at another game-time call on Friday, so Mirotic will be worth a look for short-term value. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:38 pm
    • Aaron Brooks scores 18 off the bench
      Aaron Brooks played 25 minutes off the bench against the Knicks on Thursday with 18 points, two rebounds, five assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

      Advice: Derrick Rose (illness) is not traveling with the Bulls for Friday, so chances are Brooks has another game ready to go on Friday. Although, it's not going to be as great of a matchup against the Grizzlies, but he's still worth a look for short-term value. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:27 pm
    • Chris Kaman's role doesn't change
      Chris Kaman played 18 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday, making 3-of-12 from the field for six points and three boards.

      Advice: The Blazers are not going to completely unleash him because of his age and injury history, so owners shouldn't consider him as a game-changing pickup. Kaman should have some low-end value and be better than this, though. Give him a look if you need a big man. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:44 pm
    • Thomas Robinson explodes for 15 and 16
      Thomas Robinson excelled in his first start of the season on Wednesday during a win over the Bucks, scoring 15 points with 16 boards, one steal, one block and four turnovers in 29 minutes.

      Advice: The Bucks did a Hack-A-Rob strategy late in the game, so he only made 5-of-15 from the line. Robinson had a couple bright spots last season while the Blazers were missing LaMarcus Aldridge, but he had a number of disappearing acts, too. Coach Terry Stotts said he's going to be mixing up his lineups, so this is not the new norm for Robinson. We'll need to see it again before signing off on him as a pickup in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:34 pm
    • Stotts pulls a Stotts: Thomas Robinson starts
      Thomas Robinson will start in place of Robin Lopez on Wednesday.

      Advice: Coach Terry Stotts said he is going to mix up his lineups, so T-Rob is not likely going to draw all of the starts. Joel Freeland is expected to get some starts here and there, so keep an eye on him, as well. Chris Kaman should also get a handful of extra minutes and is the best pickup for owners needing a big man. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:09 pm
    • Chris Kaman at the arena for Wednesday
      Chris Kaman has arrived to play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

      Advice: His wife is expecting, but apparently it's not going to happen tonight. Kaman is likely going to come off the bench tonight, but should still have nice fantasy value with minutes in the mid-20s. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 5:27 pm
    • Mike Miller (neck) will not play Wednesday
      Mike Miller (neck) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. Atlanta.

      Advice: He has been cleared of his concussion, but Miller is now dealing with stiffness in his neck and will sit this one out. Miller only averages 12.2 minutes per game, so his absence won't have an impact on Cleveland's rotation. Leave Miller on the wire. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 2:27 pm
    • Mike Miller (concussion) will play Wednesday
      Mike Miller (concussion) will play on Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

      Advice: Don't get too excited, as Miller is much more valuable to the Cavaliers in real life compared to fantasy leagues. Miller has only averaged 12.2 minutes per game this season, and unless you are in a deep league and desperate for 3-pointers, you should leave him on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:21 am
    • Rasual Butler scores 23 with Pierce out
      Rasual Butler came off the bench for 23 points, five rebounds, two assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers on 9-of-15 shooting in 28 minutes.

      Advice: He went on a tear like this about two weeks ago, but then dried up and did almost nothing after owners picked him up. We're crediting tonight's performance to the absence of Pierce, as he hadn't scored more than eight points in any of his previous four games. Don't expect Butler to start playing like this on a regular basis, but any time Pierce is out, remember to give Butler a look in daily leagues. And if you're in a deep league and are simply looking for a warm body, feel free to take a flier on him. Rotoworld.com

    • Kris Humphries plays well in win over MIN
      Kris Humphries bounced back from a two-point, four-rebound game on Sunday with six points, 10 rebounds and two blocks in 27 minutes on Tuesday.

      Advice: Nene is back, but Humps is still starting and should be owned in most leagues as long as that's the case. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 6:33 pm
    • Mike Miller (concussion) expected to play Wed
      Mike Miller (concussion) passed the NBA's concussion protocol and will be active for Wednesday's game.

      Advice: This is excellent new for the Cavaliers, as Miller is one of the best pure shooters in the league. However, Miller plays limited minutes off of the bench and can be ignored outside of the deepest fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 4:43 pm
    • Mike Miller may play vs Hawks on Weds
      Mike Miller (concussion) practiced on Tuesday and head coach David Blatt is hopeful that he'll be able to play against the Hawks on Wednesday.

      Advice: Miller still hasn't been cleared by doctors, but has reportedly ramped up his practice sessions as of late. We'll update Miller's status prior to Wednesday's game, but he can be left on waiver wires in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 10:58 am
    • Chris Kaman's wife due with first child
      Chris Kaman's wife is due to have the couple's first child within the next few days.

      Advice: While this is fantastic news for the Kamans, the Blazers might be extremely short-handed if Kaman misses a game any time to be with his family. With the Blazers playing the Bucks and Spurs on Wednesday and Friday and Robin Lopez (hand) out indefinitely, Meyers Leonard and Joel Freeland could be in line for all the minutes they can handle if Kaman is unavailable for any upcoming games.Thomas Robinson is also worth keeping a close eye on, as he got nice minutes down the stretch on Monday night after Ro-Lo went down. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 9:56 am
    • Kaman looking at big opportunity w/ Lopez out
      Chris Kaman scored 11 points with three rebounds in 20 minutes on Monday, and could be looking at a big opportunity with Robin Lopez out for "a while."

      Advice: Lopez broke his hand in two places and it's unclear how long "a while" is but it's plenty of time to do some damage if you're Kaman. He'll probably remain with the second unit but see his minutes spike up into the 24-28 range, making him a must-add pickup with a mid-round upside and late-round likelihood. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 11:36 pm
    • Johnson posts balanced line on Monday
      James Johnson scored eight points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 21 minutes off the bench on Monday.

      Advice: Johnson has returned late-round value while DeMar DeRozan has been out and this line only strengthens that case. Just know he'll struggle to hang on whenever DeRozan returns. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 11:26 pm
    • Davis continues to nosedive in fantasy
      Ed Davis missed all five of his shots in Monday's blowout loss to the Pacers, finishing with zero points, four rebounds, two steals and one block in 23 minutes.

      Advice: The defensive stats are nice but there has been some sort of problem with his production just about every night for a while now. Davis looked like a solid pickup at the beginning of the year but whatever the issue may be now, owners that were stashing in standard formats should move on. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:59 pm
    • Mike Miller hopeful to play on Wednesday
      Mike Miller (concussion) is hopeful to play on Wednesday.

      Advice: He is going to go through a practice on Tuesday to complete his concussion protocol. With Miller out tonight, Shawn Marion and Matthew Dellavedova should pick up a few extra minutes. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 2:53 pm
    • Miller in fourth phase of concussion protocol
      Mike Miller (head) is in the fourth stage of the NBA's concussion protocol.

      Advice: There are five total stages. "Tomorrow we’ll evaluate his response to that and where to go from there," David Blatt said. "We’re staying true to the process." Miller will not play on Monday, but he could return as soon as Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 6:42 am
    • Ed Davis unimpressive in 21 minutes Sunday
      Ed Davis' streak of quiet starts continued on Sunday with six points, four rebounds, three assists and one block in just 21 minutes of action vs. the Timberwolves.

      Advice: It was a close game and Davis wasn't in any foul trouble, but coach Byron Scott opted to play him just 21 minutes for the second game in a row. Carlos Boozer notched 22 points and 13 rebounds off the bench and seems inspired to regain his starting job, but Davis has enough upside to take a wait-and-see approach in typical fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 7:05 pm
    • Kris Humphries quiet in Sunday's win vs. Utah
      Kris Humphries scored two points on 1-of-4 shooting vs. the Jazz on Sunday, adding four rebounds, one assist and one block.

      Advice: He logged 26 minutes and continues to start ahead of Nene (10 points, six boards in 23 minutes). Fantasy owners should stick with him a while longer in case coach Randy Wittman opts for Humphries as his full-time starter. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 5:45 pm
    • Doug McDermott (knee) likely out 6-8 weeks
      Doug McDermott (knee) could have to rehab his knee for anywhere from 6-8 weeks.

      Advice: This is devastating news for the rookie, and he will likely be sidelined until the All-Star Break. McDermott wasn't in the rotation before the injury, so his absence won't have a big impact in terms of fantasy. McDermott can be cut across the board. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 5:44 pm
       
      Injured
    • Davis still sputtering in fantasy leagues
      Ed Davis continued to sputter on Friday against the Spurs, scoring just two points on 1-of-3 shooting with six rebounds, four assists and one steal in 21 minutes.

      Advice: Carlos Boozer went for 14 and 13 with two blocks and Davis is clearly the better player for the Lakers, but Byron Scott isn't ready to bench the veteran and unleash the younger player just yet. Davis has moved into the starting lineup and hasn't been too bad this week, but he's not a must-own player even if he's a guy to watch very closely. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 12:54 am
    • Johnson scores 13 points in 15 minutes
      James Johnson scored 13 points in 15 minutes on Friday, hitting 6-of-9 shots (including a three) with three rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

      Advice: Johnson hasn't exactly been a world beater over the last two weeks but he's a top 100-125 play over that span (9/8 cat), averaging 9.9 points with 4.4 boards, 59.3 percent field goals and 2.1 combined threes, steals and blocks. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:11 pm
    • Turner quiet in start against the Knicks
      Evan Turner started for injured Avery Bradley on Friday and scored 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting with two rebounds and one assist in 36 minutes.

      Advice: Turner is not a good fantasy asset even when he's getting minutes so owners can ignore him outside of daily formats. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:26 pm
    • Mirotic posts solid 15-9-1-1-1 line off bench
      Nikola Mirotic scored 15 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 4-of-9 shots (1-of-3 from deep, 6-of-6 from the line) with nine rebounds, one steal and one block in 19 minutes.

      Advice: Mirotic is doing his part to show that he can answer the call in fantasy leagues when he gets the minutes, and he has produced enough in 17.5 mpg to be worth owning in 12-team formats on a standalone basis. He'll be inconsistent unless one of the three other big men in Chicago's rotation are out, which has been the case most of the time this season. There's a lot to like here given his upside, but owners need to be prepared for some lulls when the Bulls are at full strength. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:52 pm
    • Brooks hits 8-of-10 shots for 17 points
      Aaron Brooks scored 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds and four assists in just 17 minutes on Friday.

      Advice: Brooks hasn't played well enough to be on rosters in most 12-14 team formats, and tonight's minutes are right in line with the 17-18 mpg he has played for the last two weeks. If he can string some bigger outings together we'll let you know. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:41 pm
    • Kris Humphries puts up another nice game
      Kris Humphries had a nice outing in 27 minutes against the Clippers on Friday with 11 points, eight rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block.

      Advice: Nene played 23 minutes off the bench, scoring nine points with five rebounds, two assists and two steals. The Wizards were great in the paint and kept the Clippers to just 24 points in that area of the court. Humphries looks like he's stick in the starting lineup for now, so he's worth owning in 14-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:35 pm
    • Kaman non-existent in Friday's loss
      Chris Kaman scored just two points on 1-of-4 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and one block in 19 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: Kaman had been a desperation play in 12-team formats and after a really bad stretch over the last two weeks he slides down to the same status in 14-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:05 pm
    • Doug McDermott has knee surgery
      Doug McDermott had arthroscopic knee surgery on Friday and is out indefinitely.

      Advice: It doesn't sound like a serious surgery and he could make it back before the All-Star break. McDermott has basically fallen out of the rotation anyway and can be cut in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 4:28 pm
       
      Injured
    • Evan Turner starting for Celtics
      Evan Turner will start for the Celtics in place of Avery Bradley.

      Advice: He will likely share the minutes at shooting guard with Marcus Thornton. Bradley does have 30.0 minutes per game on the season, so there should be some playing time to go around. Turner is worth a look as a plug-and-play. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 3:49 pm
    • Doug McDermott (knee) out Friday vs. Portland
      Doug McDermott (knee) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Portland.

      Advice: He might have not even played if he was active. McDermott doesn't offer enough statistically to be considered an option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Doug McDermott (knee) doesn't practice Thurs.
      Doug McDermott (knee) was not able to practice on Thursday, and is not likely to play Friday vs. Portland.

      Advice: McDermott sees very limited minutes off the Bulls bench, so whether he plays or not should be of no concern to owners in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Nikola Mirotic scores 10 off bench
      Nikola Mirotic hit 3-of-9 shots for 10 points, six rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes off the bench Wednesday.

      Advice: It was nice to see him get some run tonight, but Joakim Noah was out with an ankle injury. Once Noah rejoins Pau Gasol and Taj Gibson in uniform, minutes will be a problem for him. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:02 pm
    • Evan Turner comes back to Earth
      Evan Turner did not score on Wednesday during a 96-87 loss on Wednesday with three rebounds, four assists and one steal.

      Advice: He had an 18-point outburst on Monday and coach Brad Stevens played him down the stretch against the Wizards in that one, but that was obviously a fluke. Turner's per-minute production has been sub-par, so he's going to need a lot to happen in order to have fantasy value in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Nene returns for 12 points and six boards
      Nene played through his sore knee on Wednesday and had 12 points, six rebounds and a block off the bench in 21 minutes.

      Advice: Kris Humphries started again and could keep the job, but regardless of which player is starting a week from now, given Nene's injury history, a timeshare looks very likely going forward. Rotoworld.com

      Kris Humphries started and hit 5-of-12 shots for 11 points, three rebounds and no blocks in 28 minutes of Wednesday'a thrilling win over the Magic.

      Advice: Nene played 21 minutes off the bench and had 12 points, six rebounds and a block after missing time with a sore knee. Nene could get his starting job back soon, but Humps may have earned at least a timeshare, and might have permanently stolen Nene's job. Humphries had been playing very well with Nene out, but came back to earth with Nene back tonight. Rotoworld.com

    • Nene (foot) is available to play on Wednesday
      Nene (foot, knee) is available to play against the Magic on Wednesday.

      Advice: He will come off the bench and we're not expecting him to play more than 20 minutes tonight. If you were planning on rolling Kris Humphries tonight, this news shouldn't totally dissuade you. Nene's return is more likely going to hurt Drew Gooden. Rotoworld.com

    • Nene (knee, foot) expects to play Wednesday
      Nene (knee, plantar fasciitis) expects to play on Wednesday, though he's officially listed as questionable.

      Advice: He made it through shootaround without any setbacks, though his right foot is still causing him pain and he's unlikely to log more than 20 minutes in a bench role. Kris Humphries will earn another start at PF and is worth deploying as a source of low-volume scoring and rebounds. Rotoworld.com

    • Nene (knee) will be a game-time decision Wed
      Nene (knee) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

      Advice: He was unable to play in Monday's game vs. the Celtics, so owners will once again have to check back prior to tip-off for the official word. Nene is no longer a must-own player considering he has been benched in favor of Kris Humprhies, and will likely be brought along slowly in an effort to keep him fresh for playoffs. If Nene can't go, Humphries will be an excellent plug-and-play option. Rotoworld.com

    • Doug McDermott (knee) inactive Wednesday
      Doug McDermott (knee) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Nets.

      Advice: He is not in the rotation for the Bulls and rarely sees more than a few minutes on the court when he is active. You can safely ignore Mcdermott on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Ed Davis scores 11 with six rebounds Tuesday
      Ed Davis scored 11 points in Tuesday's win over the Kings, adding six boards and two assists in 26 minutes.

      Advice: He shot a perfect 5-of-5 from the field but he failed to block a shot or record a steal, which was a little disappointing. However, he's now the starting PF for the Lakers and should be better than this on most nights. If you are in need of a big who can contribute steady blocks and rebounds, Davis may be your man.
