    • Stephen Curry's flurry of threes helps W's
      Stephen Curry hit just 6-of-16 shots for 19 points, one rebound, 11 assists, two steals, two blocks and six 3-pointers in Wednesday's win over the Bucks.

      Advice: Yes, all six of his field goals were 3-pointers, and three of them came in back-to-back-to-back fashion, and he didn't even stick around to watch the last one go in (which was a dagger), running down the court while the ball was still in the air. James Harden might be the favorite to win the MVP award this season, but you would be foolish to think that Curry is out of the running. Rotoworld.com

    • Norris Cole takes a back seat
      Norris Cole made 2-of-8 from the field against the Pistons on Wednesday with four points, one rebound, three assists and one block in 27 minutes.

      Advice: The minutes were still a very encouraging sign. Cole did take more shots in his previous games without Anthony Davis, but he'll likely be more of a secondary option now that the Pelicans are getting some players back. He's only worth owning in deep leagues until Jrue Holiday (leg) can return, which might not happen. Rotoworld.com

    • Eric Gordon slows down vs. Detroit
      Eric Gordon scored just four points with two assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer against the Pistons on Wednesday.

      Advice: He scored at least 18 points each of his three previous games with 3.7 treys per game. Obviously Gordon's usage took a nosedive with the return of Anthony Davis, but he should still be able to score in the teens with over two treys per game. He's worth owning in standard leagues.

    • Jared Dudley starts, posts 'dud' in loss
      Jared Dudley started at shooting guard on Wednesday, but hit just 1-of-5 shots for two points, four rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes.

      Advice: He was relevant a month ago, but should no longer be owned in fantasy. Rotoworld.com

    • Reggie Jackson scores 14 with 11 dimes
      Reggie Jackson played well against the Pelicans on Wednesday during an 88-85 loss with 14 points, five rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and four turnovers in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He made 7-of-16 from the field, which is a huge improvement from making just 33.3 percent from the field in his previous four. Jackson's numbers are still pretty good considering he can't make shots right now, averaging 15.6 points, 5.2 boards 7.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.8 treys. He's a must-start player. Rotoworld.com
      57 minutes ago
    • Jodie Meeks puts up 20 points
      Jodie Meeks scored 20 points with one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

      Advice: He's been drastically outplayed by Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, but managed to drop his first 20-point game of 2015. Meeks averaged just 11.0 points and 0.9 treys on 41.5 percent from the field in February, so we'll need to see it again. Keep an eye on him, though. KCP had just eight points in 24 minutes and is the better player to own. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben McLemore cools off in loss
      Ben McLemore hit just 3-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, two rebounds, two assists, three steals and a block in 39 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: The minutes were nice, but B-Mac saw his streak of double-digit games snapped at four tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:50 pm
    • Dion Waiters scores 20 points with 10 boards
      Dion Waiters scored 20 points with 10 rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer against the 76ers on Wednesday.

      Advice: It's the first 20-10 game of his career. Waiters has looked awful since the break before tonight, making just 35.1 percent from the field in his previous seven games. It would appear Kevin Durant (foot) is getting closer to a return, which would hurt Waiters' chances to score. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:36 pm
    • Goran Dragic plays well despite sore back
      Goran Dragic hit 6-of-10 shots for 21 points, four rebounds, six assists, three steals, a block and a 3-pointer in Wednesday's win over the Lakers.

      Advice: He played just 15 minutes on Monday due to a sore back, but looked fine tonight. Make sure he's in your lineup going forward. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:33 pm
    • Jeremy Lin goes for 12 & 9 in loss
      Jeremy Lin had 12 points, two rebounds, nine assists, four steals and a 3-pointer on 5-of-12 shooting in Wednesday's loss.

      Advice: Lin is kind of rolling right now, averaging 15.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.8 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.2 3-pointers on 44 percent shooting over his last five games. Pick him up if you he's available and you need a point guard. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:25 pm
    • J.R. Smith scores 15 with eight rebounds
      J.R. Smith hit 6-of-12 shots for 15 points, eight rebounds, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's win.

      Advice: Smith is averaging 12.0 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five games, but has shot just 39 percent over that stretch. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:02 pm
    • Lou Williams racks up 26 points, 6 assists
      Lou Williams hit 7-of-8 shots, 4-of-4 3-pointers and 8-of-8 free throws for 26 points and six assists on Wednesday.

      Advice: He's been pretty good all season long, with or without Kyle Lowry, but with Lowry out with a mysterious hand/rest injury, Williams looks like a safe bet for production any time Lowry is out. His 21 points in the fourth quarter set a franchise record. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:50 pm
    • Greivis Vasquez hands out 13 dimes
      Greivis Vasquez had six points, 13 assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 2-of-7 shooting in a team-high 40 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: Kyle Lowry sat out again tonight and we're not sure when he'll play again. Anytime he's out, Vasquez is capable of a big line, and he came through tonight, at least in respect to the dimes. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:48 pm
    • Will Barton scores 17 points in 30 minutes
      Will Barton scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers against the Wolves on Wednesday.

      Advice: Seven of these points did come in garbage time and Barton was probably looking at around minutes in the low 20s had this game been close. Now that Nuggets are playing some of their veterans again, Barton isn't quite as attractive as an add in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:28 pm
    • Kevin Martin has a rough return
      Kevin Martin had a rough night in his return to the lineup on Wednesday with nine points, three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer on 3-of-15 from the field.

      Advice: He had an airball in this game and it's fair to say he didn't have his legs under him tonight. Martin did play well in February, averaging 21.3 points, 4.3 boards 1.2 steals and 1.9 treys on 46.2 percent from the field. He is basically a must-start player while he's healthy. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:03 pm
    • Jared Dudley will start, Ilyasova off bench
      Jared Dudley will start against the Warriors on Wednesday with Ersan Ilyasova coming off the bench.

      Advice: Coach Jason Kidd said he likes Dudley's communication skills and he thinks the team needs that during this adjustment period. This isn't the first time Ilyasova gets bumped to the bench and it'll be interesting to see how he responds. Dudley can be left on the wire for now. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 6:38 pm
    • SVG says Reggie Jackson is off his game
      Coach Stan Van Gundy said Reggie Jackson is "off his game" right now.

      Advice: "He's pressing too hard, trying to do too much, sort of thinking too much," Van Gundy said. "He's got to relax and play according to what the defense does." Jackson has really struggled scoring the ball, making just 33.3 percent from the field with the Pistons. Specifically, he's been awful outside of the paint, making just 18.5 percent of those shots with the Pistons. While he was benched on Saturday, Jackson is still dominating the ball and should get it going very soon. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:30 am
    • Kevin Martin (illness) will play vs. Nuggets
      Kevin Martin (illness) will play vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

      Advice: Martin is reportedly feeling a lot better after sitting out vs. the Clippers on Monday, and his owners can safely plug him back into all lineups. Gary Neal, who started Monday's game against the Clippers, will shift back to the bench and can be dropped across the board. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:34 am
    • Goran Dragic (back) will play on Wednesday
      Goran Dragic (back) will play on Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

      Advice: He was unable to practice on Tuesday and is said to be dealing with back spasms and a sore shoulder, but it's great to see that it won't force him to miss any action. Dragic is coming off a 21-point performance vs. the Suns on Monday, so his owners can confidently deploy him in all active lineups. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 7:56 am
    • Jared Dudley (knee) struggles in return Tues
      Jared Dudley (knee) finished Tuesday's loss in Denver with two points, five boards and one assist in 20 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: He shot just 1-of-6 from the field and may not be 100 percent healthy. Standard-league owners can leave him on the waiver wire as long as he's playing 20-25 minutes behind Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Ersan Ilyasova. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 9:00 pm
    • Will Barton struggles in 22 minutes vs. Bucks
      Will Barton struggled in 22 minutes off Denver's bench on Tuesday, scoring two points on 0-of-2 field goals and 2-of-5 free throws.

      Advice: He added three rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block, so it wasn't a total loss. This is still a far cry from the 18.8 points he was averaging over his previous four games, and owners may want to hold him a bit longer to see how he fares under interim coach Melvin Hunt. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:58 pm
    • Jeremy Lin sinks key 3-pointer vs. Charlotte
      Jeremy Lin sank a late 3-pointer in Charlotte on Tuesday, finishing the Lakers' one-point loss with 23 points, six rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one block in 30 minutes.

      Advice: Lin made 9-of-16 shots overall and he's been gaining steam with increased minutes and offensive responsibilities since the All-Star break. Despite averaging under 28 minutes in his previous five games, Lin was already helping fantasy owners with 17.0 points on 50.0 percent FGs and 75.0 percent FTs, as well as 2.8 boards, 5.0 assists and 1.2 steals. Tonight's eruption clinches the deal and he shouldn't be floating on your waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:27 pm
    • Ben McLemore scores 20 pts w/ two 3s Tuesday
      Ben McLemore took advantage of the Knicks' defense on Tuesday to score 20 points on 6-of-12 field goals and 6-of-7 free throws in just 24 minutes of action.

      Advice: He drained two 3-pointers and chipped in two rebounds and four assists before sitting out most of the second half. McLemore is averaging 17.3 points and 1.8 triples in his past four games, and his outlook has brightened considerably in George Karl's attacking offense. If you need 3-point shooting, make sure he isn't floating on your waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 6:53 pm
    • Goran Dragic dealing with right shoulder pain
      Goran Dragic said on Tuesday that he is still experiencing pain in his right shoulder stemming from a hard collision he took during Monday's game against Phoenix.

      Advice: Dragic did not participate during Tuesday's practice and we'll be considering him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers. If he's unable to go, Mario Chalmers would slide back into the starting lineup, with Shabazz Napier seeing extended minutes off the bench. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 11:29 am
    • Scott happy with Jeremy Lin's recent play
      Lakers head coach Byron Scott said he's happy with the way that Jeremy Lin has been playing recently.

      Advice: "I am really happy with the way he’s starting to show that consistent effort for every single night," Scott said of Lin after Sunday's loss to the Thunder. "He’s playing the way I think he’s capable of playing." While Lin has had an inconsistent season, he's stepped up his play as of late and is averaging 17.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.0 assists, and 1.2 steals in 27.8 minutes over his last five games. As long as he can continue to his pace, he's worth owning in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:38 am
    • Goran Dragic returned to action on Monday March 2. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 10:59 pm
    • Eric Gordon posts 18-5-4 line with four treys
      Eric Gordon's surprising surge continued in Monday's loss to the Mavs as he scored 18 points on 4-of-11 shooting (including four treys) with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.

      Advice: The production isn't surprising as he's been doing this for a while now, posting a top 50-80 month (8/9 cat) with no end in sight. The fact that he has been consistent and healthy is the good part, and it's nice to see him carry some of the weight from that ugly contract the Pelicans signed him to. Tyreke Evans added 17 points, three boards, seven assists, one steal and one three in the loss. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:14 pm
    • Cole scores 19 points off the bench
      Norris Cole scored 19 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 8-of-12 shots (including two threes) with one rebound, three assists and one block in 36 minutes.

      Advice: Cole is getting some extra looks with Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson out, and also not working in his long-term favor is that his standard-league game is a mess. He doesn't do much besides score and hit a few threes with a few assists, but he might be worth a look in your deeper points league. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:06 pm
    • Concentrated Revenge: Dragic burns Suns
      Goran Dragic fought through a back injury and only needed nine shots from the field and less than 15 minutes to score 21 points against the Suns during a 115-98 win on Monday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: Dragic said he would have sat out against any other team, so chalk this one up to the old revenge game narrative. He was fouled hard and needed to go to the locker room tonight, so he might not be healthy for Wednesday against the Lakers. As for his performance tonight, he became just the second player in the past decade to score 21 points in less than 15 minutes (Kyle Lowry). He should have plenty of big lines on the way, if his back allows him to play. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:54 pm
    • Greivis Vasquez has a mild letdown game
      Greivis Vasquez scored 12 points on 5-of-8 from the field with one rebound, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the 76ers on Monday.

      Advice: That's pretty good efficiency, but the usage wasn't there with DeMar DeRozan being a one-man band. Vasquez has been solid so far in his starts, putting up a 14-point, six-dime line on Saturday. He should be worth starting in standard leagues while Kyle Lowry (finger) is out. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 7:57 pm
    • Kevin Martin, Nikola Pekovic out Monday
      Kevin Martin (illness) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Monday.

      Advice: The Wolves will start Gorgui Dieng and Gary Neal. Coach Flip Saunders said that the flus is going around and their assistant coach won't be at the arena. Martin still isn't a must-start player now that he has one game on the sidelines this week. Neal is also a risky play. We should get a lot of Andrew Wiggins. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 3:51 pm
    • Goran Dragic will start on Monday night
      Goran Dragic (back) is going to start against the Suns on Monday.

      Advice: If you're into revenge games, this might be your Super Bowl. Dragic should get minutes in the mid 30s tonight and is a must-start in standard leagues. He and Dwyane Wade haven't played too well together, but that's to be expected for two ball-dominant guys. Start the Dragon. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 3:45 pm
    • Goran Dragic (back) is a game-time call
      Goran Dragic is a game-time decision against the Suns on Monday.

      Advice: One would think he would at least try to play against a team with a front office he doesn't trust. Dragic has played well with the Heat, averaging 13.8 points, 3.0 boards, 5.4 dimes, 1.4 steals and 0.6 treys, so he's a must-start player if active, obviously. If he's out, we should get a lot of Shabazz Napier and Mario Chalmers running the point, but it'll be the Dwyane Wade Show, as well. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 2:51 pm
    • Jared Dudley ready to roll for Tuesday night
      Jared Dudley (knee) will play against the Nuggets on Tuesday.

      Advice: He missed Saturday due to some soreness in his knee cap and looks to be in the clear. Interestingly, every fantasy owner's favorite headache, Ersan Ilyasova, stepped up while Dudley was down, so that is the major fantasy implication here. While Dudley isn't worth owning, it'll be interesting to see what happens with Ghostface Ilya. Dudley isn't worth owning in most leagues while Ilyasova is worth a look -- add at your own risk of course. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 11:25 am
    • Kevin Martin suddenly questionable w/ illness
      Kevin Martin (illness) is questionable to play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

      Advice: If Martin can't suit up, expect Andrew Wiggins to be at the epicenter of whatever Minnesota tries to do against Los Angeles. And if the veteran is sidelined, it's possible Gary Neal would slide into the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 10:32 am
    • Goran Dragic (back) questionable for Monday
      Goran Dragic (back) is still being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Suns.

      Advice: Dragic really wants to play, but he's clearly hurting even though he did report some improvement. He did not participate in shootaround, an indication that The Dragon could be headed for a dreaded game-time call. If he's unable to suit up, Mario Chalmers would start and see all of the minutes he can handle with Shabazz Napier as his backup. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:33 am
    • Eric Gordon scores 18 points in NOP victory
      Eric Gordon scored 18 points vs. the Nuggets on Sunday, adding three 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He's now made a 3-pointer in 25 consecutive games which is huge for a Pelicans team that ranks in the bottom-10 for 3-pointers made. With Ryan Anderson (knee) out of commission, it's safe to say Gordon will have a neon-green light to shoot from downtown in the coming weeks. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 8:03 pm
    • Will Barton scores 16 points w/ 10 rebounds
      Will Barton came off Denver's bench for 16 points and a season-high 10 rebounds in Sunday's home loss, adding two steals without any turnovers in 27 minutes.

      Advice: The Nuggets are going nowhere this season but at least Barton is proving to be a solid acquisition, averaging 18.8 points, 1.3 triples, 6.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in his last four games. How long he can keep it up is anyone's guess, but he's earning his minutes and makes for a nice speculative addition in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 7:51 pm
    • Goran Dragic (back) questionable for Monday
      According to head coach Erik Spoelstra, Goran Dragic is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Suns after he dealt with back spasms during Saturday's game vs. the Hawks.

      Advice: "He got hit in the back and that's why he was in the locker room," Spoelstra said. "He probably shouldn't have played in the second half. He just played through it. I kept on asking him if he was OK and he said he was... He gutted it out." Dragic will likely do everything in his power to be ready in time to face his former team, and we should be able to provide another update after the Heat's shootaround on Monday morning. If Dragic can't play, Mario Chalmers will be the primary beneficiary, while Shabazz Napier would likely see an uptick in minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 7:37 pm
    • Jeremy Lin stays hot, scores 20 in loss Sun.
      Jeremy Lin continued his impressive play in a loss to the Thunder on Sunday, scoring 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting with eight assists, six boards, three steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

      Advice: Distant memories of Linsanity are slowly starting to surface, as Lin has been a new man since the All-Star break, averaging 17.0 points, 5.0 assists, 2.8 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.8 3-pointers in 27.8 minutes per game. While it is highly unlikely that he takes over as the starting PG with rookie Jordan Clarkson playing well, Lin has been playing a lot of minutes at shooting guard which is huge for his value moving forward. Don't look now, but Lin is worth a flier in most leagues to see if he can keep up his torrid pace. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 7:19 pm
    • Dion Waiters struggles for short-handed OKC
      Dion Waiters couldn't capitalize on the Thunder's injuries, finishing Sunday's road win with nine points on 4-of-13 shooting in 28 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: He added three boards and three assists but missed all of his 3-point attempts, and sluggish offensive is dooming him to fantasy irrelevance. Waiters is shooting 35.7 percent over the past five games and history suggests he won't improve much in the season's final weeks. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 7:13 pm
    • Ben McLemore jams finger, says he is fine
      Ben McLemore suffered a jammed finger against the Blazers on Sunday, finishing with 12 points, two boards, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

      Advice: While he was wearing a sleeve on his finger in the locker room, he said he is going to be fine and we would be surprised if he was forced to miss any action. McLemore has now scored in double digits in eight of his last ten games, and while he is certainly not a must-own player, he is worth a look for owners in need of 3-pointers and scoring. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 6:41 pm
    • Stephen Curry's 37 help erase 26-pt deficit
      Stephen Curry scored a game-high 37 points to help the Warriors erase a 26-point deficit and steal a win in Boston on Sunday, tying the largest comeback in the NBA this season.

      Advice: He went 14-of-22 from the field with five 3-pointers, and offset his five turnovers with four rebounds, five assists and one steal. He's been flirting with No. 1 fantasy status all season thanks to ridiculous games like this, and tonight's victory improved the Warriors' league-best record to 46-11. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 5:32 pm
    • Lou Williams scores 22 points off the bench
      Lou Williams scored 22 points against the Knicks on Saturday with two rebounds, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: He logged 15 minutes as the backup point guard and that might continue if the Raptors rest Kyle Lowry more. Before tonight, Williams was struggling in the second half with averages of 14.3 points, 1.8 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.5 treys on 41.0 percent from the field. He's still a solid player to own in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 7:29 pm
    • Greivis Vasquez scores 14 in a start
      Greivis Vasquez scored 14 points in a start against the Knicks on Saturday with three rebounds, six assists and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

      Advice: There's a chance that Kyle Lowry needs to rest more, which makes sense because he's looked awful for over one month. Vasquez has a lot of potential as the starting point guard and even led the NBA in total dimes back in 2012-13. He's worth a look if you want some short-term help at point guard and is capable of putting up this type of line most nights. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 7:24 pm
    • Goran Dragic struggles against the Hawks
      Goran Dragic went scoreless in the first half against the Hawks on Saturday, finishing with six points, three rebounds, six assists, two steals and three turnovers.

      Advice: It's been a bumpy ride for Dragic, but his averages still look fine. In his five games with the Heat, he averaged 13.8 points, 3.0 boards, 5.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.6 treys on 49.1 percent from the field. He should get even better and have a chance to be a third- or fourth-round guy. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 7:12 pm
    • Reggie Jackson benched late vs. Wizards
      Reggie Jackson struggled yet again on Saturday against the Wizards, making 4-of-12 from the field for nine points with three rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: It's not going well for him and he was benched tonight because Spencer Dinwiddie outplayed him big time. Interestingly, Jackson had a time of possession per game of 9.6 minutes in his first three games with Detroit, which is actually more John Wall's league-leading 8.2. However, Jackson can't make shots and he's really only had two effective halves in eight tries, making just 33.3 percent from the field with the Pistons. Still, his upside is too high to panic. Try to buy low if you can. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:29 pm
    • Jared Dudley (knee) out for Saturday
      Jared Dudley (knee) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

      Advice: X-rays were negative on his kneecap and he appears to be day-to-day. However, it's tough to gauge how much time he is going to miss because Dudley did have an issue with his kneecap last year. He can be dropped in most leagues. Ersan Ilyasova and Jerryd Bayless likely get most of Dudley's minutes. Ilyasova is worth a look in standard leagues and we'll let you know how he does tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 4:45 pm
    • Greivis Vasquez starting for Kyle Lowry
      Greivis Vasquez will start against the Knicks on Saturday.

      Advice: The last time Kyle Lowry missed a game (Apr. 5, 2014), Greivis Vasquez had 26 points, four boards, four dimes, one steal and six treys in 37 minutes. He should get a huge increase in playing time in a favorable matchup. If you're looking to stream a point guard tonight, look no further. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 3:29 pm
    • Lin posts 14-5-6 line in win over Bucks
      Jeremy Lin scored 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes off the bench in the Lakers' 101-93 win over the Bucks on Friday.

      Advice: Lin has hovered around the bottom of the top-150 over the last month but has picked it up over the last week or so. Bryon Scott has said that he's thinking of starting Lin at some point, but that's not necessarily the driver of his value. He's worth a pickup though for the chance he can make a late-season run.

    • McLemore scores 21 points vs. Spurs
      Ben McLemore scored 21 points on 5-of-8 shooting (10-of-12 FTs) with four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in Friday's loss to the Spurs.

      Advice: McLemore has looked pretty good this season but the usage just hasn't been there, and his stat-set is somewhat deficient for standard formats. He got the extra looks tonight with DeMarcus Cousins out with a short-term ankle issue, but he should slowly see his role increase as the Kings finish out the season under George Karl. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:22 am
    • Barton scores 22 points with empty line
      Will Barton scored 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting (1-of-3 3PTs, 5-of-6 FTs) with two rebounds and two assists in Friday's blowout loss.

      Advice: Barton went huge on Wednesday but unlike tonight he actually had stats outside of the scoring department. It's hard to trust much that is going on in Denver these days, but there's some flier appeal here because he might be the only guy not in Brian Shaw's doghouse right now. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:01 am
    • Gordon posts 20 pts, eight rebs, four 3PMs
      Eric Gordon scored 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting (including four threes) with one rebound and eight assists in the Pelicans' 104-102 win over the Heat on Friday.

      Advice: The Pelicans aren't falling out of contention in the playoff chase and Gordon is a big reason why. He's been a top 50-75 guy (8/9 cat) over the last month or so and that'll probably be the case until (if) Jrue Holiday returns. Tyreke Evans added 19 points, three boards, 11 assists, one trey and five turnovers in the win. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 12:44 am
    • Cole goes hitless on 10 shot attempts
      Norris Cole missed all 10 of his field goal attempts on Friday, finishing with three points (3-of-4 FTs), two boards and four assists in 23 minutes.

      Advice: This could be his worst game for the rest of the season and he had been fairly hot coming in. Cole isn't a must-own player or even a strong add, but he could wiggle his way into a productive role before it's all said and done in New Orleans. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 12:35 am
    • Jared Dudley needed an X-ray on knee
      Jared Dudley needed an X-ray on his knee following Friday's game.

      Advice: He said he is dealing with some problems with his kneecap, which bothered him last season. Dudley hasn't played well lately and has clearly been passed by Khris Middleton. If he's out, more minutes will go to Ersan Ilyasova and Jerryd Bayless. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:54 pm
    • Reggie Jackson has an abysmal game
      Reggie Jackson made 5-of-24 from the field against the Knicks on Friday for 16 points with five rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: This kind of line against the Knicks is inexcusable. Jackson hasn't quite hit his stride with his new team and is making just 33.3 percent from the field in his last three. Jackson is still a huge part of the offense and he's a good bet for several 20-7-7 kind of lines this season. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:23 pm
    • J.R. Smith scores 21 points in a loss
      J.R. Smith scored 21 points with four assists, one block and four 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

      Advice: He had more chances to score with LeBron James (back) and Kyrie Irving (shoulder) out tonight. LeBron won't be out long, but Smith's previous averages with the Cavs are solid at 12.3 points, 3.0 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.5 treys. He's worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 8:22 pm
    • Lin to start over Clarkson at some point?
      Coach Bryon Scott said he is thinking of starting Jeremy Lin at some point.

      Advice: The change is not going to happen tonight with the Lakers sticking with the same starting five. Lin may start over Jordan Clarkson or the team could go with a two-PG lineup, as well. Clarkson has played next to Lin for 23.3 percent of his minutes this season, so this isn't too bold and there won't be many fantasy implications here outside of Wayne Ellington being less appealing. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:37 am
    • Dion Waiters scores 16 points against Suns
      Dion Waiters scored 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting on Thursday vs. the Suns, adding two steals and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

      Advice: He has now scored in double digits in each of his last four games, and he hasn't been shy about hoisting up shots either, averaging 15 shots per game over that span. That being said, Waiters still doesn't do enough outside of scoring to be considered in standard leagues, and the eventual return of Kevin Durant (foot) will hurt his value. Leave Waiters on the wire. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 11:31 pm
    • Stephen Curry scores 18 with six assists
      Stephen Curry notched 18 points on 5-of-17 shooting in Thursday's loss to the Cavaliers, adding six assists, three boards, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

      Advice: He is coming off a 32-point performance against the Wizards on Tuesday, so his owners should give him a pass here. The good news is that Curry said his foot is feeling "pretty solid", and head coach Steve Kerr went even further and said that it was no longer an issue. Curry is locked into an all-out battle for the MVP Award alongside James Harden, LeBron James and Russell Westbrook, so his owners are in for quite a show as we draw closer to the fantasy playoffs. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 9:24 pm
    • J.R. Smith scores just four points on Thurs.
      J.R. Smith was held to just four points for the second straight game on Thursday vs. the Warriors, shooting just 1-of-5 from the floor and missing both of his 3-point attempts.

      Advice: He saved his line with four rebounds, five assists and four steals, but this has been the story of Smith's career so far. He is one of the streakiest players in the NBA, and his owners will simply have to take the good with the bad. Smith is still worth owing in most leagues, especially now that Kyrie Irving could miss some time with a shoulder issue. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 9:17 pm
    • Foot no longer a concern for Stephen Curry
      Steve Kerr said that he spoke with Stephen Curry and the team's athletic trainer on Thursday, and that Curry's foot issue is no longer a concern.

      Advice: Curry also said that his foot is feeling "pretty solid," so it appears that there will be no lingering issues after he was forced to miss Sunday's game vs. the Pacers. Curry is coming off a 30-point, eight-assist outing from Tuesday, and he'll look to keep the momentum going with what should be a thrilling matchup against the Cavs tonight. Hopefully the last we hear of any foot/ankle issues for the MVP-candidate this season. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 3:49 pm
    • Steph Curry says foot feeling better
      Steph Curry (ankle) said his foot is feeling "pretty solid" and that it has responded well to treatment.

      Advice: Curry dropped 32 points with five three-pointers and eight assists on Tuesday, so his recent play certainly backs up his statement. The Warriors have a brutal schedule coming up with four games in each of the next five weeks, but a healthy Curry could pay huge dividends for his fantasy owners with that much game volume on the horizon. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 9:55 am
    • McLemore scores 16 points vs. Grizzlies
      Ben McLemore scored 16 points on Wednesday, but backed it up with zero rebounds, zero assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers on 7-of-15 shooting.

      Advice: The potential is there, but he tends to leave his owners with the opposite of a peaceful, easy feeling after each game. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:30 pm
    • Will Barton starts second half, scores 22
      Will Barton scored a season-high 22 points against the Suns on Wednesday with eight rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

      Advice: Wilson Chandler did not play and Darrell Arthur (knee) lasted just three minutes, so it was Barton starting the second half. Barton did score 15 points on Monday and he is likely to get minutes in the 20s even when Chandler comes back -- Chandler is hoping to play on Friday. He's worth a look in deep leagues right now and is a speculative add in 14-team leagues for now. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:09 pm
    • Eric Gordon's slump continues Wednesday
      Eric Gordon hit just 2-of-11 shots (both 3-pointers) for eight points, six rebounds, four assists and a steal on Wednesday.

      Advice: He's really struggling with his shot right now, hitting just 19-of-61 shots over his last five games, good for just 31 percent. He's averaging 12.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 3.2 3-pointers over that stretch, so if his shot ever comes back, he could start putting up some really nice numbers. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:02 pm
    • Kevin Martin still hot, scores 28 in win
      Kevin Martin kept it rolling on Wednesday, hitting 10-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 28 points and two steals in an easy win over the Wizards.

      Advice: He's on fire and has scored 21 or more points in six straight games. If you stuck with him through the wrist debacle, he's paying off down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:15 pm
    • Greivis Vasquez scores 14 pts on 5-of-6 FGs
      Greivis Vasquez made 5-of-6 shots including 3-of-3 triples to finish Tuesday's game with 14 points off the bench, his highest-scoring performance since Feb. 6.

      Advice: James Johnson (six points in 26 minutes) is locking down the starting SF job and Vasquez isn't an appealing fantasy option as long as Johnson, DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry are all healthy. Toronto's offense has flagged lately but their real liability has been defense -- Raptors' opponents are shooting 45.6 percent from the field this season, the worst mark of any playoff-bound team other than the Heat. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:43 pm
    • Dion Waiters w/ 14 points on 18 shot attempts
      Dion Waiters needed 18 shots to score 14 points during Tuesday's win vs. the Pacers, though four of his five makes came from beyond the arc.

      Advice: He shot 0-of-7 from within 16 feet of the basket, which is an extreme example of Waiters' season-long inefficiency. He's shooting just 50.3 percent in the restricted area, 36.4 percent in the paint, and his True Shooting of 45.5 percent leaves much to be desired. There's no reason to touch him outside of the deepest fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:13 pm
    • Reggie Jackson racks up 22 pts, 8 reb, 9 ast
      Reggie Jackson filled up the boxscore during Tuesday's home loss, scoring a team-high 22 points with one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, nine assists and one block.

      Advice: R-Jax took a whopping 15 drives to the basket during his Pistons debut, according to NBA.com, and he finished 5-of-8 within 12 feet of the hoop tonight. He's being unleashed by coach Stan Van Gundy, a thrilling development for patient owners who watched him languish on OKC's bench prior to the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:32 pm
    • J.R. Smith cools off, Cavs still beat Pistons
      J.R. Smith had a quiet night vs. the Pistons, shooting just 1-of-4 with a pair of free throws to finish with four points, two rebounds, two assists and three steals.

      Advice: Smith was in some foul trouble and he only played 22 minutes, his fewest since joining the Cavs on Jan. 6. He's been a steady top-60 value over the past two months and fantasy owners should shrug off tonight's relative dud. Cleveland has now won 17 of their past 19 games and their early-season angst has evaporated ever since GM David Griffin traded for Smith, Iman Shumpert and Timofey Mozgov. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:26 pm
    • Jodie Meeks struggles in 15 minutes vs. Cavs
      Jodie Meeks was invisible on Tuesday, scoring three points with one rebound in only 15 minutes vs. the Cavaliers.

      Advice: He shot 1-of-5 from the field and hasn't found any lasting traction since returning from his serious back injury on Dec. 12. Meeks has intriguing potential if you're in search of 3-pointers, steals and FT percentage, but for now most owners should cut him in favor of a more reliable free agent. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:23 pm
    • Stephen Curry (ankle) scores 32 pts in return
      Stephen Curry (ankle) was back in Golden State's starting lineup on Tuesday, dropping 32 points, five 3-pointers, eight assists and two steals in 34 minutes of action.

      Advice: He didn't commit any turnovers while shooting 11-of-18 from the field and 5-of-5 from the FT line. It's safe to conclude that his ankle is healthy. Curry's fantasy owners can look forward to a torrid stretch during the fantasy playoffs, as Golden State plays four games in each of the next five weeks. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 6:41 pm
    • Stephen Curry (ankle) will start Tuesday
      Updating a previous report, Stephen Curry (ankle) will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Wizards, sending Shaun Livingston back to the bench.

      Advice: The matchup is an irrelevant factor for Curry as he can easily go off for 50 points on any given night, so go ahead and get the MVP candidate back in your active lineups for what should be an exciting, uptempo game with the Wizards. Livingston's return to the bench will make him a negligible asset in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 3:23 pm
    • Stephen Curry (ankle) expected to play Tues.
      Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr said, "It looks like Stephen [Curry] is going to play," Tuesday vs. the Wizards.

      Advice: All signs are pointing towards Curry giving it a go, and it's all but official at this point. Owners can feel confident plugging Curry into their active roster tonight, and we'll let you know if anything changes. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 3:07 pm
    • Steph Curry probable for Tues vs Wizards
      Steph Curry (ankle/foot) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards, according to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.

      Advice: This is great news for Steph's fantasy owners after he was forced to miss Sunday's game with a sore right foot. We'll update his status closer to game time, but Curry can be safely plugged back into fantasy lineups while Shaun Livingston will return to a bench role. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:01 am
    • Norris Cole posts 15 points, six assists
      Norris Cole backed up a solid debut from Saturday with 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting, one rebound, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes off the bench on Monday.

      Advice: The Pelicans might be desperate enough for offense that Cole steps into the void right away and produces. Consider him a flier pick for 12-14 team leagues at this time. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:10 pm
    • Sweet Lou (ankle) gets back on the floor
      Lou Williams (ankle) scored nine points on 1-of-8 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 25 minutes off the bench on Monday.

      Advice: Williams hit 6-of-7 shots from the line and the peripherals save this from being a total loss. He'll get things straightened out unless the ankle injury lingers. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:59 pm
    • Dudley goes scoreless on Monday vs. Bulls
      Jared Dudley was demoted to a bench role on Monday and missed all four of his shot attempts, finishing with no points as the Bulls had no mercy on his soul.

      Advice: Dudley managed two steals, one board and one assist and he has been slowly trending down over the past week. After a night like this, owners have to be thinking about a drop and if there's any slightly better than average free agent it's an easy call. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 7:40 pm
    • Lou Williams will play on Monday night
      Lou Williams (ankle) will play against the Pelicans on Monday.

      Advice: He missed Saturday due to swelling in his ankle. Williams was on fire before his ankle injury, scoring 26 points on Friday. His fantasy owners can plug him back in. It'll be interesting to see if Terrence Ross gets any minutes at all tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 3:45 pm
    • Stephen Curry questionable for Tuesday night
      Stephen Curry (ankle/foot) went through Monday's practice, but he's already being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

      Advice: In other words, the Warriors just don't know enough yet to make a determination one way or another, but it's good news that he was able to practice on Monday. After missing Sunday's contest, Curry could very well be headed for a game-time call on Tuesday. The Warriors will not do anything to jeopardize their MVP candidate's health as the team prepares for a postseason push. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:48 am
    • Blatt: Shumpert, Smith have been a 'godsend'
      David Blatt said J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert have been a 'godsend' for the Cavs.

      Advice: J.R. Smith has been a dream for us, as a team and for me personally," Blatt said. "I love the guy. I love coaching him. He comes to work every single day. He’s a great teammate. He’s playing both ends of the court for us consistently." He didn't just stop there, either. "He’s one of the main reasons for our turnaround, together with Iman, who simply started later because of the injury. Those guys, honestly, they’ve been a godsend. They really have. They turned the team around." Since joining the Cavs, Smith is averaging 12.8 points, 1.7 steals and 2.7 triples in 32 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 6:26 am
    • Reggie Jackson felt like Thunder 'scapegoat'
      Reggie Jackson said that he felt like the "scapegoat" with the Thunder.

      Advice: "I wasn't always perfect, nor was the situation, but I became the brunt of the blame there," Jackson said. "Everything bad that happened, I was the scapegoat. I'm taking all this blame, and I'm wondering: 'How am I supposed to change it all here, make an impact, in eight minutes a game?' Jackson dramatized his exit out of OKC, and he's now under tremendous pressure to succeed as Stan Van Gundy's point guard, a responsibility that Jackson says he's always wanted. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 6:19 am
    • Jeremy Lin scores 25 points in Lakers' OT win
      The Lakers stole an overtime win vs. the Celtics on Sunday behind Jeremy Lin, who scored 25 points and handed out six assists in just 30 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: Lin didn't play during the first quarter and seemed headed for another lousy night, but he caught fire as the game went on and was the difference-maker in L.A.'s comeback victory. The Lakers have won two of their past 18 games and they're headed nowhere this season, which is another reason to distrust Lin's ROS value, but he's at least worth stashing on your bench in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 22, 9:56 pm
    • Will Barton plays well in 25 minutes for DEN
      Will Barton played 25 minutes off the bench in his Nuggets debut on Sunday, scoring eight points on 3-of-10 shooting and a full stat line.

      Advice: Barton added three boards, three assists, two steals and a rare blocked shot in an unconditionally encouraging debut for Denver. This game was a blowout and Brian Shaw played 13 guys at least 12 minutes, however, so Barton's role comes with no guarantees. He's only worth a speculative pickup in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 22, 7:06 pm
    • Dion Waiters leads OKC reserves w/ 17 points
      Dion Waiters led all Thunder reserves with 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting during Sunday's rout, adding one 3-pointer, three rebounds and one turnover in 27 minutes.

      Advice: "The whole team is having fun," Waiters said after the game. That's a far cry from his attitude while in Cleveland and he seems to be embracing a reserve role for OKC, though it helps that he got 15 shot attempts tonight with Kevin Durant (foot) out and starting swingman Kyle Singler in early foul trouble. He's shooting 36.5 percent over his past dozen games and remains a sketchy pickup in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 22, 7:00 pm
    • Reggie Jackson scores 17 pts in Pistons debut
      Reggie Jackson scored 17 points with five rebounds and five assists in his Pistons' debut on Sunday, making 7-of-18 shots with one 3-pointer in 30 minutes of action.

      Advice: He immediately started and is a must-own player now that he's locked in as a starter for Detroit. He hadn't taken more than 12 shots in a game since Dec. 31 and his stats will inevitably spike across the board, so get in your trade offers while you still can. Tonight's line could have been even better but Jackson was under the weather, even becoming ill on the sidelines during the game. R-Jax's starting job is bad news for reserve G Spencer Dinwiddie, who isn't worth holding in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 22, 3:58 pm
    • J.R. Smith scores 17 points with full line
      J.R. Smith was productive against his former team on Sunday, scoring 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting with four assists, three rebounds, three 3-pointers, one steal, two blocks and one turnover through 29 minutes of action.

      Advice: The change of scenery to Cleveland has done Smith wonders, as he's currently averaging 12.7 points and 2.5 assists, while hitting career-highs in 3-pointers (2.7) and steals (1.7). He's getting plenty of open looks playing next to LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, and no longer having to think about what a triangle looks like has been a major plus for Smith. He's well worth owning in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 22, 2:45 pm
    • Lou Williams (ankle) probable Monday vs. NO
      Lou Williams (ankle) is being listed as probable for Monday's game against the Pelicans.

      Advice: If Williams is able to return on Monday, he'll take away minutes from Greivis Vasquez and Terrence Ross. He'll draw a favorable matchup against the Pelicans, and with averages of 15.4 points, 1.9 three-pointers, and 1.2 steals per game, he'll be a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 22, 1:12 pm
    • Reggie Jackson will start Sunday vs. Wizards
      Reggie Jackson will be in the starting lineup against the Wizards on Sunday.

      Advice: Jackson is looking at a huge bump in his fantasy value since his move to Detroit, and he should be owned in all leagues moving forward. In 13 starts for the Thunder this season, Jackson averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 3-pointers per game, so his owners should be feeling pretty good right about now. Spencer Dinwiddie will shift to the bench on Sunday, and can now be dropped in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Feb 22, 7:46 am
    • Greivis Vasquez struggles with Lou out
      Greivis Vasquez played 22 minutes off the bench with six points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: He was roasted on defense and this bad game is going to sting. Vasquez played almost all of his minutes at point guard and that might continue with Lou Williams (ankle) out. He's only worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
