  • Reggie Jackson (illness) won't play Wednesday
    Reggie Jackson (illness) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Pistons will rely on Brandon Jennings and Spencer Dinwiddie (ankle), with Steve Blake also an option to join the rotation. Jennings is starting and is easily the most appealing option of the bunch, though most fantasy owners won't be able to take advantage since this news broke a few minutes before tip-off. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:29 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) out Wednesday vs. PHI
    Ben McLemore (sprained right wrist) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: McLemore was never close to playing tonight, and it'll be Marco Belinelli benefitting most in his absence. Ben should be able to get back onto the court after the All-Star break, but he's irrelevant in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:02 pm
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) out for Wednesday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) will not play on Wednesday against the Raptors.

    Advice: The Wolves get some extra run out of Zach LaVine at shooting guard tonight. Martin could be traded next week and has very little value. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:00 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova confirmed out
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play on Wednesday against the Lakers.

    Advice: He was listed as out all day and it's confirmed he won't play. Mo Williams will get some extra minutes again, but Dellavedova could be back after the break. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:54 pm
  • Caldwell-Pope will be ready right after break
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) said he "for sure" will be back and playing right after the break.

    Advice: That means he is going to play on Feb. 19 against the Wizards. If he is indeed going to be back, that makes Stanley Johnson slightly less appealing even though he may have earned more run. If Caldwell-Pope is sitting around on the wire, go pick him up. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:43 pm
  • Kobe Bryant (shoulder) will start vs. Cavs
    Kobe Bryant (shoulder) will start against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: It'll be with the usual starters against LeBron and company. Bryant has seen a lot of volume and he should see a similar workload on the national stage. He's obviously a risky start tonight. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:39 pm
  • Zach LaVine will start Wednesday vs. Toronto
    Zach LaVine will start Wednesday vs. the Raptors with Tayshaun Prince (personal) away from the team.

    Advice: Andrew Wiggins will slide over to the three with LaVine back in the starting five, and Shabazz Muhammad will have the opportunity for some extended run off the bench sans Prince. LaVine does have a tough matchup tonight, so owners should take that into consideration before activating him. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:20 pm
  • Reggie Bullock out for Wednesday
    Reggie Bullock (nose) had surgery and is out for Wednesday against the Nuggets.

    Advice: He should be ready after the break. With the Pistons shorthanded, there should be an added chance for Darrun Hilliard behind Stanley Johnson. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:59 pm
  • Revenge game? Nik Stauskas starting vs. Kings
    Nik Stauskas (neck) will start against the Kings on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He'll join Ish Smith, Robert Covington, Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor. The Kings dumped Sauce Castillo last offseason to basically cut their losses, so he has a little added motivation. Although, he had a bad game against them in December. Start him at your own risk tonight and he's not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:34 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey (ankle) not ready yet
    Rodney Stuckey (ankle) is not likely to be ready after the break right away.

    Advice: He will be practicing, but the Pacers will take it slow. Joe Young and C.J. Miles will play a couple extra minutes. Stuckey can stay on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:23 pm
  • Eric Gordon says he's making good progress
    Eric Gordon (broken finger) said that everything is progressing "good and as normal."

    Advice: Gordon is hopeful to make it back to the court by late-February, and with Tyreke Evans likely to undergo season-ending knee surgery, Gordon will be a larger part of the offense once he's able to get back on the court. Gordan has mid-round upside sans Evans, so he's worth stashing away in most leagues now that he's nearing a return. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:57 am
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) doubtful for Wednesday
    Kevin Martin (sore right wrist) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: Martin hasn't played since January 23, and there's no indication that that will change tonight. Zach LaVine and Shabazz Muhammad will continue to pick up some extended run in his absence, with LaVine offering the most upside. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:42 am
  • Tyreke Evans getting further tests on knee
    Tyreke Evans is undergoing further tests on his bothersome right knee to determine if surgery will be required to correct the issue.

    Advice: While surgery has not yet officially been determined, it seems the likely route for Evans who is playing on a 19-32 team with little hopes of making a post-season run. With Tyreke likely done for the year, Jrue Holiday and Noris Cole figure to see a boost in value while Bryce Dejean-Jones is now much more likely to sign a deal that will keep him with the team for the remainder of the season. Cole is worth a look in most leagues for those seeking a low-end point guard. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:40 am
  • Doc hopeful to have Rivers back in four weeks
    Doc Rivers said that he's optimistic Austin Rivers will be able to return to the court in four weeks because his fractured left hand did not require surgery.

    Advice: Jamal Crawford will be the primary beneficiary with Rivers on the shelf for at least the next four weeks, with Pablo Prigioni and Lance Stephenson having the opportunity for some extended run. Rivers is nothing more than a backup with the Clippers, and he's not done enough statistically this season to warrant ownership in any league. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:44 am
  • Alan Anderson still not close to a return
    Alan Anderson (ankle) is still not close to making a return to the court.

    Advice: "He's getting closer. I can't give you a couple weeks [timetable]. He's not been on the floor in practice. He's doing a lot of individual stuff on the floor but hasn't reached that point," Wittman said. "He's got to get on the floor. He hasn't done a thing all year. We got to get him practice on the floor, up and down, bodies around him." Anderson will likely be brought along slowly in Washington, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.

    Injured
     
  • Matthews frustrated by 4th quarter benching
    After spending the past two games on the bench during crunch time, Wesley Matthews voiced his frustration following Tuesday's overtime loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: "Yeah, I was frustrated. I've never been taken out of a game in crunch time. I haven't," said Matthews. "That's new to me. I've always been especially a crunch-time player, so I don't know." The Mavs pulled out a win over the Grizzlies with Wesley on the bench during crunch time on Saturday, but fell to the Jazz during overtime on Tuesday, with Raymond Felton getting the call over Matthews. That's not a trend that's likely to continue, so owners have little to be concerned about here. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:15 am
  • Marcus Thornton scores 15 off the bench
    Marcus Thornton scored 15 points with three assists, one board, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: Thornton probably deserves more reps in Houston, but coach J.B. Bickerstaff likes Corey Brewer too much. His role has been too sporadic and he's basically a hit-or-miss option every night, so he's hard to rely on in most leagues. He scored a combined nine points in his previous two outings on 3-of-15 shooting. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:20 pm
  • Trevor Ariza scores 19 w/ four treys
    Trevor Ariza scored 19 points with seven rebounds, two steals and four 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: He was coming off a five-point dud vs. the Blazers, so he redeemed himself tonight. Luckily for Ariza, he will get another shot to get revenge against Portland on Wednesday in a game that will have plenty of playoff-race implications. Ariza should be treated as a top-40 player moving forward as long as he continues to start as the stretch four. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:17 pm
  • Corey Brewer scores nine points in loss
    Corey Brewer scored nine points on 3-of-9 shooting with five boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: His coach loves him and said that he's "disruptive" on the defensive end, but he really hasn't looked that good other than a 24-point outburst vs. the lowly Suns on Thursday. Brewer will be on the fantasy radar for any owner in need of steals or 3-pointers as long as he continues to start, but he's better suited for deeper leagues until further notice. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:13 pm
  • James Harden drops 37 points in loss
    James Harden (finger) dropped 37 points in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors, adding five boards and five assists in 40 minutes.

    Advice: His finger wasn't an issue tonight and he was very solid on the defensive end with three steals and one block, but his biggest accomplishment was holding Klay Thompson to 13 points on 5-of-19 shooting. Harden hit six 3-pointers in the loss, but he will need to be on top of his game again on Wednesday in a crucial matchup with the Blazers. Both the Rockets and the Blazers have 27 losses on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:01 pm
  • Klay Thompson misses all seven 3-pointers
    Klay Thompson missed all seven of his 3-point attempts on Tuesday vs. the Rockets, finishing with 13 points, three assists and two boards in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Needless to say, this was one of his worst performances on the offensive end this season, but James Harden deserves some credit for his defense. Even if you include tonight's dud, Thompson still has averages of 24.2 points and 3.2 3-pointers over his last five games, so he's going to be fine. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:55 pm
  • Andre Iguodala scores 12 points off bench
    Andre Iguodala scored 12 points off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Rockets with six assists, six boards and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: This was his first game with double-digit points since Jan. 22, so this performance doesn't move the needle much for Iguodala. Harrison Barnes is playing well again and the Warriors are healthy, so his production is going to be hard to rely on in standard leagues. He's also a candidate to get a couple of maintenance days down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:52 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) likely out for the season
    Tyreke Evans plans to undergo surgery on his right knee and will likely miss the rest of the 2015-16 season.

    Advice: This is a tough blow for Evans and the Pelicans, but it sounds like the wise decision because there is no reason for him to play at less than 100 percent in what has become a lost season for New Orleans. This could have a significant impact on the Pelicans at the trade deadline as they may be more willing to become sellers. If Evans goes through with the surgery, Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole look like the primary beneficiaries, while Bryce Dejean-Jones could be signed for the remainder of the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:42 pm
  • Warriors make history, improve to 47-4
    Stephen Curry helped the Warriors improve to 47-4 on the season in Tuesday's win over the Rockets, scoring 35 points with nine assists.

    Advice: With the win, the Warriors now have the best start in NBA history through 51 games and they also earned their 42nd-straight regular-season win at home. Curry has been the best player in the NBA and in fantasy basketball this season and this team is determined to beat the Chicago Bulls' all-time record of 72 wins in a season which was set in 1996. Curry added five boards, one steal and seven 3-pointers in 38 minutes and gets a date with the Suns on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful Wednesday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: To be clear, he isn't going to play with the All-Star break right around the corner. McLemore hasn't played well this season and is not worth owning in most leagues. Marco Belinelli will continue to benefit in his absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:38 pm
  • Gordon Hayward hits game-winner in OT
    Gordon Hayward hit an 18-footer with Zaza Pachulia right in his face at the buzzer on Tuesday, giving the Jazz a 121-119 overtime win against the Mavericks.

    Advice: Hayward's shot wasn't falling at times tonight (8-of-20), but he still finished with 20 points, five rebounds, four assists and a steal. He was 0-for-6 from downtown, but is still having a great season and it doesn't look like the return of Derrick Favors is going to hurt him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Ray Felton scores 17 with nice line off bench
    Raymond Felton hit 5-of-9 shots, a 3-pointer and 6-of-6 free throws for 17 points, seven rebounds, five assists and a steal in Tuesday's overtime loss.

    Advice: He hit a big shot late in regulation to help force overtime and has scored in double figures in four of his last five games. If you need guard help, there's a decent chance he's available in your league. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Wes Matthews breaks out of slump with 16
    Wesley Matthews, who hadn't scored more than nine points in three straight games, hit 5-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 16 points, two rebounds and three assists in Tuesday's loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: The minutes are there for Matthews, but he's shooting just 40 percent from the floor over his last five games. Hopefully tonight was a sign that he's going to get hot soon, but we'll have to wait until Feb. 19 to find out if it's going to happen. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Danny Green scores 15, finally getting hot
    Danny Green played 31 minutes and hit 6-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals, a block and two 3-pointers in a win over the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: This is the type of line his owners were expecting when they drafted Green in October, but it took him until late January to finally start being productive. He's averaging 11.6 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.6 3-pointers over his last five games, shooting 47 percent in 30 minutes a game. If he was dropped in your league by a disgruntled owner, hopefully you were able to cash in. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • James Harden (finger) will play vs. Warriors
    James Harden (finger) will play Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Harden is not on the Rockets' injury report, and was a full participant during shootaround, so there's no reason to believe he'll miss Tuesday's matchup against the defending champs. Go ahead and get him active. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:01 pm
  • Report: NO could move Tyreke Evans, Gordon?
    The Pelicans are reportedly open to moving either Tyreke Evans (knee) or Eric Gordon (finger).

    Advice: While Evans' talent is undeniable, his surgically repaired right knee has become a major issue, so the Pelicans may be willing to move on from the oft-injured guard. The same can be said for Gordon, as he has never made it through a full 82-game season, so it'll be interesting to see if New Orleans makes a move at the deadline. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:44 pm
  • Kobe Bryant is probable for Wednesday
    Kobe Bryant (shoulder) is probable to play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a road game and his last game in Cleveland, so expect Kobe to be ready to go for that game. Bryant has not missed any games away from Staples in 2016 and he's played 32.8 minutes per game in his last four. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:50 am
  • Matthew Dellavedova likely out until ASB
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) is likely out until after the All-Star break.

    Advice: The Cavs won't confirm that Delly will miss Wednesday's game against the Lakers, but keeping him out until after the break will give him 17 days in between games to heal his hamstring. We'll keep an eye on his status after shootaround on Wednesday, but Mo Williams will likely see a bit of a minutes boost against the Lakers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:09 am
  • Kobe Bryant doesn't want to change FT rules
    Kobe Bryant isn't a proponent of changing free throw rules to discourage hacking.

    Advice: While the league looks at improving the aesthetic of the game by doing away with intentional fouling of poor-shooting players, Bryant thinks it's a bad idea. "That sets a horrible example for the kids," Kobe said. "Can't protect guys that can't make free throws." Free throws aside, Bryant is averaging 26.4 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals, and 4.6 treys over his last five games and is a must-start player as long as he's healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:49 am
  • Zach LaVine scores 12 points in loss
    Zach LaVine scored 12 points with two boards, two assists, one 3-pointer and three blocks on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: The blocks were obviously a career high and he didn't record more than one block in a game this season prior to tonight. LaVine was 4-of-10 from the field in the loss and didn't have any turnovers, so his fantasy arrow is still pointing up. As the year progresses, his role should only grow. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:22 pm
  • Reggie Jackson struggles with foul trouble
    Reggie Jackson struggled with foul trouble on Monday vs. the Raptors, scoring 13 points with five assists in just 29 minutes.

    Advice: He had five fouls which kept him from getting into any kind of groove offensively and he finished 6-of-14 from the field and missed all three of his 3-pointers. To make matters worse, Jackson also turned the ball over six times. This was just a rough night in general for Detroit against a really strong Toronto team, so look for Jackson to bounce back vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:30 pm
  • Kobe Bryant scores 19 in 33 minutes
    Kobe Bryant made 6-of-25 from the field for 19 points with five rebounds and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes during an 89-87 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: He wasn't bashful and forced a lot of shots in the failed comeback attempt. "I made a shot and then went back to shooting like [expletive]," Kobe said. "Pulled the rabbit out of the hat & the rabbit disappeared." He looks pretty healthy and should play in most road games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:42 pm
  • Nik Stauskas (neck) to the locker room
    Nik Stauskas suffered a neck injury in the fourth quarter on Monday against the Clippers.

    Advice: He was sitting on the court for about 10 seconds before he walked back to the locker room under his own power. Stauskas is likely done for the night, checking out with five points, one rebound and one 3-pointer. He was replaced by Robert Covington. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:00 pm
  • Kobe Bryant, Julius Randle will start
    Kobe Bryant (shoulder) and Julius Randle (ankle) will both start vs. the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: Their status was never really in doubt, so they shouldn't have any limitations. Bryant is averaging 28.5 points, 6.5 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 4.8 3-pointers over his last four games, so he needs to be in all lineups until he cools off. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:46 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) ruled out Monday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) will not play on Monday vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful, so he probably won't play against the 76ers on Wednesday either. With McLemore on the shelf, Marco Belinelli will draw another start and is worth a look if you need 3-pointers. Belinelli has scored in double digits in each of his last four games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:06 pm
  • Reggie Bullock will play with a mask
    Reggie Bullock will play on Monday with a mask.

    Advice: He suffered a broken nose over the weekend and it shouldn't affect his playing time. He's currently behind Darrun Hillard and Stanley Johnson for shooting guard minutes. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:01 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova likely out through break
    Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) is out Monday and is unlikely for Wednesday.

    Advice: The Cavs will allow him to rest through the break. With Dellavedova out, Mo Williams should get minutes as Kyrie Irving's backup. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:26 pm
  • Martin, Garnett and Pekovic out on Monday
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play against the Pelicans on Monday

    Advice: He is probably out through the break, but other teams may want to see Martin get out there on the court before trading for him. Martin is not worth stashing in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:35 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) doubtful for Mon. night
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. Cleveland.

    Advice: McLemore has really fallen out of favor, and he's not going to play on Monday. Marco Belinelli and Darren Collison will get more run against LeBron James and Co. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:54 am
  • Kobe, Randle both expected to play on Monday
    Kobe Bryant (shoulder) and Julius Randle (ankle) are both expected to play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Despite Kobe's questionable tag, he's going to keep playing so long as he doesn't suffer a setback or new injury of any kind. And while Randle's ankle injury looked bad, he quickly shook it off and wasn't in real danger of missing any time. Both will be in the starting lineup as the Lakers take on Roy Hibbert's (ankle, questionable) old team on Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:00 am
  • Matthew Dellavedova out again on Monday night
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. Sacramento.

    Advice: Delly's absence means Mo Williams will continue to remain in the rotation, but only as a backup to a healthy Kyrie Irving. Leave Williams on the waiver wire in your fantasy league. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:19 am
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) questionable for Monday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Martin has spent the past six games on the sidelines, but perhaps the Timberwolves will look to showcase him against a team that could really use a two-guard. If he plays, he'll cut into Zach LaVine's minutes. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:09 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) will not play Sunday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) will not play on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful and never really had a shot at seeing the court today. Marco Belinelli will benefit the most, while James Anderson and Darren Collison will see a few more minutes as well. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:58 am
  • James Harden (finger) says he is fine
    James Harden (finger) believes that he should be all right.

    Advice: "My middle finger bent back," Harden said. "It's swollen a little bit, but it should be all right." Harden didn't play down the stretch in Sunday's game vs. the Blazers, but it was likely due to the lopsided score and he said that it would've have been "pointless" for him to keep playing. Harden should be considered day-to-day, but it would be surprising if he didn't play vs. the Warriors on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:21 am
  • Kobe Bryant and Roy Hibbert are questionable
    Kobe Bryant (shoulder) and Roy Hibbert (ankle) are questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Bryant has been on fire over his last four games with averages of 28.5 points, 6.5 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 4.8 3-pointers, so it would be a shame if he was forced to sit out. If he isn't able to play, Anthony Brown would draw the start, but Lou Williams, Jordan Clarkson and D'Angelo Russell would benefit the most. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:34 am
  • Gordon Hayward scores 22 points in win
    Gordon Hayward scored 22 points in a win over the Suns on Saturday with six boards, three assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

    Advice: He has been logging heavy playing time over his last four games, averaging 39.5 minutes in that span. The Jazz were missing Trey Burke (illness) tonight and Alec Burks (ankle) is expected to return after the All-Star break, so help is on the way for the Jazz. With Utah right in the middle of the playoff hunt, Hayward's mid-round value is safe for the remainder of the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:48 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 26, Warriors beat OKC
    Stephen Curry scored a team-high 26 points during a 116-108 win over the Thunder on Saturday, adding six rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: OKC held Steph in check for just his second game with just one 3-pointer this season. The Warriors were still able to get a win after blowing an 18-point lead and are currently on pace for the best record ever at 46-4. As for Curry, that one trey makes it 121 consecutive games with one triple while he also became No. 3 on the franchise's all-time steals list. He is making last year's MVP run seem ordinary. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:46 pm
  • Danny Green scores 11 points in win
    Danny Green scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with five boards, two assists, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes in a win over the Lakers on Saturday.

    Advice: His production has been sporadic all season, but nights like these are why it's so difficult for us to let him go. Green is now averaging 9.6 points, 5.0 boards, 1.4 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.6 steals and 2.4 3-pointers over his last five games which is only good for top-100 value, but he's still a hold in standard leagues as long as you have some patience. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:34 pm
  • Kobe Bryant scores 25 points vs. the Spurs
    Kobe Bryant scored 25 points on 9-of-28 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Spurs, adding four assists, one board, one block and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: To his credit, Bryant kept the Lakers in this one until the very end, as the Spurs surprisingly only won by four points. The Black Mamba has been lethal over his last four games with averages of 28.5 points, 6.5 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 4.8 3-pointers. He needs to be in all lineups until he cools off, but his owners should really consider selling high. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:04 pm
  • Raymond Felton scores 16 points off bench
    Raymond Felton scored 16 points off the bench on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies with seven boards, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Wesley Matthews was benched down the stretch and finished with just eight points, but coach Rick Carlisle was simply riding the hot hand in Felton. He scored just six points in his previous outing in 21 minutes, so he would have to do this again to be on the radar in standard leagues. To be clear, Matthews' spot in the lineup is not in jeopardy. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:14 pm
  • Austin Rivers out 4-6 weeks with broken hand
    Austin Rivers has been diagnosed with a broken left hand and is expected to miss the next 4-6 weeks.

    Advice: He suffered the injury during Wednesday's game, and it now appears that he won't be able to return to the floor until March at the earliest. With Rivers looking at an extended absence, Pablo Prigioni could become the backup point guard, while some extra minutes could trickle down to Lance Stephenson and Jamal Crawford. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:02 pm
  • Reggie Jackson scores 26 points in loss
    Reggie Jackson scored 26 points on 10-of-15 from the field during a 112-104 loss to the Pacers on Saturday, adding three rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: That's a very efficient line with low turnovers, which have seen a very nice improvement recently. In his last five, Jackson averaged 19.2 points, 1.8 boards, 4.2 assists, 0.6 steals, 2.4 treys and 1.4 turnovers on 47.9 percent from the field. Once the assists start to come around, Jackson should start to be that top-50 player his owners drafted. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:09 pm
  • Trevor Ariza finally cools off
    Trevor Ariza scored five points with five rebounds, four steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: At least the steals were there in Ariza's worst game since the lineup change. Before this dud, he was putting up first-round value as the starting power forward. Keep him active and it's fair to expect him to be a top-40 player going forward. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:04 pm
  • James Harden scores 33, hurts right hand
    James Harden suffered an apparent minor right hand injury on Saturday, finishing with 33 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block, four 3-pointers and 10 turnovers.

    Advice: He had ice on his hand for most of the fourth quarter because the Rockets were blown out tonight. Harden did play through his hand issue for a few minutes before going to the bench, so chances are this is minor. He also took the ice pack off his hand for the final two minutes. For now, there shouldn't be much concern, but you never know when it comes to a hand injury. We'll pass along any info if he needs an X-ray. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:36 pm
  • Martin, Pekovic and Garnett out Saturday
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (foot, ankle) will not play on Saturday against the Bulls.

    Advice: These guys are not close to a return. Martin may have played his last minutes with the Wolves as the trade deadline approaches. Zach LaVine will get close to 30 minutes tonight and is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:36 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) out until All-Star break
    Tyreke Evans (knee) has been shut down until the All-Star break.

    Advice: "Hopefully he’ll be ready to go right after the All-Star break and we’ll be able to play him for the rest of the stretch [of the schedule]," coach Alvin Gentry said. His owners should stash him in an IR spot, but it's still possible that he could be shut down during the final weeks of the season if the Pelicans are not in the playoff hunt. In the meantime, Bryce Dejean-Jones will continue to start and is worth a look in deeper leagues. Jrue Holiday will benefit as well. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:15 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova out again on Saturday
    Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: His hamstring issue has been a problem for two weeks and the Cavs may rest him until the break. Mo Williams will be in the rotation again while this news also helps Iman Shumpert because of no Kevin Love. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:55 pm
  • Ben McLemore doubtful for Sunday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful to play against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: He only played 12 minutes in his return from a wrist injury on Friday, so maybe his wrist injury wasn't healed all the way. Assuming Darren Collison's minor knee issue is fine, he should benefit the most along with Marco Belinelli in the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:49 pm
  • Austin Rivers (hand) is questionable Sunday
    Austin Rivers (hand) is a game-time decision for Sunday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: He bruised his hand back on Wednesday and was held out of Friday's game vs. the Magic because he didn't feel like he was healthy enough to help the team. Pablo Prigioni (face) is also questionable, so Jamal Crawford would benefit the most if either player is held out. Rivers is not a fantasy option outside of deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:59 am
  • Martin, Garnett and Pekovic are all doubtful
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett and Nikola Pekovic (foot) are all doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: To be clear, none of them will play and the Wolves should've just listed them as out. Martin may not play again until the trade deadline, and by that by point he might be wearing a different uniform. He's not worth stashing in most leagues, while Zach LaVine will continue to benefit in his absence. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:34 am
  • Caldwell-Pope expected to be back after ASB
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (core muscle strain) is expected to be back right after the All-Star break.

    Advice: This was the expectation all along, but Stan Van Gundy confirmed it again on Saturday. KCP is worth stashing in almost all leagues unless you're desperate, and in the meantime Stanley Johnson is worth owning after scoring 22 points in 44 minutes vs. the Knicks on Thursday. On a side note, SVG also said that the Pistons will likely stand pat at the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:06 am
  • Bickerstaff praises Corey Brewer
    Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that Corey Brewer is "disruptive" on the defensive end.

    Advice: "He's disruptive," Bickerstaff said. "When he's able to get steals, that's when his offense starts. His offense starts on the defensive end of the court. It's a steal for us. It's a defensive rebound for us and then it's a quick outlet. When we're getting stops, that's when [Brewer] is at his best." Brewer scored 24 points against the Suns on Thursday and is still starting at small forward, but he was struggling prior to that game. Unless he does this again, he's better suited for deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:57 am
  • Lakers have reduced Kobe's workload
    Lakers coach Byron Scott said that Kobe Bryant's workload in practice has been reduced so that he can be fresh for games.

    Advice: "Less work has been better because his legs are fresh, especially the last couple of weeks," Scott said. "He has a different pep in his step." Bryant sat out of Friday's practice, but his status for Saturday's game vs. the Spurs isn't in doubt. He's averaging 29.3 points and 5.0 3-pointers over his last three games, so he's worth deploying in all lineups until he cools off. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:44 am
  • Wesley Matthews scores four points in 23 mins
    Wesley Matthews couldn't get anything going during Friday's blowout loss to the Spurs, tallying just four points on 2-of-5 shooting with one rebound, two assists, one block and one turnover in 23 minutes.

    Advice: The Mavs were blown out badly in this one, and the game was essentially over after the first-quarter. Wesley was noticeably upset after the game saying it was the most "embarrassing game" he's ever been a part of "at any level." Matthews has been struggling over the past month, knocking down just 34.5 percent of his shots, and it might not get any better any time soon with Dallas set to play Memphis on Saturday and Utah on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:23 pm
  • Danny Green scores eight points w/ two treys
    Danny Green scored eight points on 3-of-8 shooting Friday, to go with two 3-pointers, four boards, one assist and one turnover in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Mr. Green has become elite at following up productive outing with meaningless stat lines, although he has managed to produce fifth-round value in 9-cat leagues over the past two weeks with averages of 9.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.7 three-pointers on 45.7 percent shooting. He can be truly infuriating to own, but with the upward trend, he's a hold in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:22 pm
  • McLemore has another bad game
    Ben McLemore scored five points with two assists and one steal in 12 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He is losing playing time and it's not because of his wrist injury. Unless the Kings really start unloading players, McLemore can be ignored in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:50 pm
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) questionable Saturday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is officially questionable to play vs. the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: Martin has missed six straight games, he hasn't logged 30 minutes in a contest since early December, and Sam Mitchell said recently that he wasn't close to returning. The Wolves' only incentive to play him at less than 100 percent would be to showcase him for a potential trade -- he's not a desirable fantasy asset unless he lands in an ideal situation. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:44 pm
  • Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) iffy Saturday
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) won't play on Friday and he's questionable to return vs. the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: Tyronn Lue suggested prior to Friday's game that Dellavedova might not be ready to face New Orleans, which isn't a good sign. Mo Williams is picking up a handful of minutes in Delly's absence, but he's not a viable fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:25 pm
  • Austin Rivers (hand) out for Friday night
    Austin Rivers (hand) will not play against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: He bruised his hand before he was ejected on Wednesday. Expect to see more Pablo Prigioni and Jamal Crawford tonight in the road game. Crawford should have a chance to score a lot and is worth a look in DFS tonight. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:13 pm
  • Austin Rivers (bruised hand) iffy for Friday
    Austin Rivers (bruised left hand) is questionable to play vs. the Clippers on Friday.

    Advice: Jamal Crawford and Pablo Prigioni would absorb Rivers' playing time if he can't suit up, though J-Craw is the only viable fantasy target. We should have a definitive update after the Clips' pre-game warmups. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:01 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) ruled out for Saturday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday against the Cavs.

    Advice: The Pelicans are talking about a shutdown, but it's not in their plans right now. There's a decent chance we don't see Evans back out there this week. Bryce Dejean-Jones was very good on Thursday and should get more starts. Norris Cole also benefits and hopeful he can stay out of foul trouble. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:23 pm
  • Kobe Bryant expected to play on Saturday
    Kobe Bryant missed practice on Friday and is fully expected to play on Saturday against the Spurs.

    Advice: It's his last road game in San Antonio, so it would be a big surprise to see him out. Bryant is on fire in his last two games and he might be someone to use in DFS for the first time. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:09 pm
  • Martin, Garnett & Pekovic not close to return
    Coach Sam Mitchell said the Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle, foot) are not close to returning.

    Advice: "I love the way we're playing right now," Mitchell said. In other words, those guys are basically out of the rotation. This is terrific news for Zach LaVine and Gorgui Dieng. Martin is on the trade block for next to nothing and will need to be dealt to have value. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:30 am
  • Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) out Friday
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play on Friday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: This will be his second straight game on the shelf and the Cavs shouldn't be in any hurry to rush him back. Mo Williams played just 11 minutes on Wednesday as the backup point guard, so there's no real reason to consider him outside of deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:06 am
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) is probable
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is probable to play the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday, but coach George Karl decided to bring him off the bench behind Marco Belinelli and he only saw a total of 18 minutes. For now, McLemore is only on the radar in very deep leagues as he isn't very involved in the offense. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:18 am
  • James Harden scores just 17 points
    James Harden was quiet during a 111-105 win over the Suns on Thursday, scoring 17 points with nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 4-of-19 from the field.

    Advice: Interestingly, coach J.B. Bickerstaff pulled all of his starters four minutes into the the game because of sloppy play. They obviously turned it around, though. Harden usually lights up the Suns and he is also solid on the road, so this is a shocking letdown. He'll be fine and should be a top-five player going forward in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:30 pm
  • Trevor Ariza goes off again, scores 22
    Trevor Ariza went off again with 22 points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and three 3-pointers against the Suns on Thursday.

    Advice: He was killer as a power forward last year with Kevin McHale, but now he's rolling in that role again with coach J.B. Bickerstaff. Since being shifted to power forward back on Jan. 22, he averaged 17.9 points, 4.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 2.4 steals and 3.8 treys. That's good for top-10 value in that span and has boosted him to fourth-round value on the year now. If you bought low, you look really smart. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:26 pm
  • Corey Brewer scores game-high 24 points
    Corey Brewer scored a game-high 24 points against Suns on Thursday with one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: The Rockets scored 26 points in fast break, so that kind of output there is right up Brewer's alley. In his previous starts, Brewer only has averages of 9.6 points, 3.4 boards, 1.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 treys on 38.8 percent from the field. If you want to ride him while he's played better, hopefully you're not dropping anything of value. He's not an add in standard leagues yet. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:15 pm
  • Reggie Jackson scores 21 points in win
    Reggie Jackson scored 21 points against the Knicks on Thursday during a 111-105 win, adding one rebound, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He hit a clutch three to help get his team the win. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had a 17.3 usage rate next to Jackson this year, so that should mean there will be more pick-and-roll plays for Reggie to buoy his usage rate -- no player after the break had more shots in PNR than RJ last year. Expect Jackson to get out of his slump in the near future. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:46 pm
  • Caldwell-Pope out until after All-Star Game
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope suffered a core muscle strain on Wednesday and will be re-evaluated after the All-Star Game.

    Advice: He had an MRI to confirm the injury on Thursday. A core muscle injury is slightly bad news because it's not just a regular groin strain, which was the original diagnosis. Caldwell-Pope owners might have him out well beyond the break, but he's good enough to stash in most leagues. Stanley Johnson is the pickup of the night. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:18 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) out for Thursday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will not play against the Lakers on Thursday.

    Advice: Coach Alvin Gentry was asked about a shut down and said they are evaluating it, but it's not in the plan right now. Evans hasn't warmed up in over a week and the Pelicans haven't set a date for him to return. Bryce Dejean-Jones will get a start and hopefully the Pelicans don't play Toney Douglas 22 minutes like they did on Wednesday. Norris Cole and Jrue Holiday should be locked into lineups. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:58 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) out Thursday
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. the Knicks, as expected.

    Advice: Stanley Johnson will start in KCP's place on Thursday with Brandon Jennings earning some extended run off the bench. Caldwell-Pope was spotted walking without a limp on Thursday, but it seems unlikely he's able to return to the court until some time after the All-Star break. The upside with Johnson is tremendous, so he needs to be owned in most leagues with KCP likely looking at an extended absence. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:48 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope walking w/out a limp
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) was spotted walking without a limp, but he remains highly unlikely for Thursday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Beat reporter Keith Langlois said that he doesn't anticipate KCP getting back to the court until after the All-Star break, but the fact that he's walking without a limp just a day after what looked like a pretty bad injury is certainly a positive sign regarding his long-term outlook. Stanley Johnson and Brandon Jennings figure to split the majority of Caldwell-Pope's minutes for however long he's out, and both players are worth swooping up in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:26 pm
  • Tyreke Evans doubtful for Thursday vs Lakers
    Tyreke Evans (knee) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Lakers.

    Advice: Evans sat against the Spurs on Wednesday, so it wouldn't be a huge shock to see him sit again on Thursday. We'll keep an eye out for his status, but it looks like Bryce Dejean-Jones will get another start while Norris Cole and Jrue Holiday would also benefit from Evans' absence. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:32 am
  • Marcus Thornton enjoys playing next to Harden
    Marcus Thornton expressed his desire to play more alongside James Harden.

    Advice: Thornton played alongside Harden more on Tuesday and responded with 18 points off the bench. "I was talking about that this morning," Thornton said. "I love playing with James. Teams are more focused on him. That gives me wide-open shots. In return, I can play-make for him and get him wide-open shots, too." Thornton may get an opportunity to play more alongside Harden, but his minutes are too inconsistent to warrant a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:56 am
  • Zach LaVine gets 34 minutes, scores 17
    Zach LaVine scored 17 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Sam Mitchell went with a lineup quartet of LaVine, Ricky Rubio, Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns for 15.3 minutes -- that combo actually has a positive net rating on the year, too. The UCLA product has hinted he likes playing shooting guard more and he's had some solid success there recently. LaVine should be owned in standard leagues. Additionally, he will be in the dunk contest next week. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:57 pm
  • Ben McLemore plays 18 minutes
    Ben McLemore (wrist) returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday against the Bulls, scoring five points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: The Kings bench wasn't hurt too badly tonight and McLemore played a well-rounded game. While he was showing some improvement thanks to a season-high 26 on Thursday, there's still no reason to add him. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:47 pm
  • Danny Green scores 16 points in 39 minutes
    Danny Green scored 16 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in a season-high 39 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Advice: Green did not hit the 30-minute mark in any game since Jan. 8, so this is a shock. He has more ups and downs than an entire amusement park of roller coasters, but Green is putting up value. In 2016, he has put up sixth-round value in his last 15 games, so it's hard to complain too much. Keep him owned in all leagues and remember not to complain to your friends too much about the bad Green nights. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:01 pm
  • Austin Rivers ejected for two techs
    Austin Rivers was ejected for two technical fouls on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He exited with eight minutes left in the second quarter. Rivers is actually playing well right now, so the Clippers will turn to Lance Stephenson and Jamal Crawford to help out. Rivers won't be suspended for this. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:22 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 51 with 11 triples
    Stephen Curry scored 51 points during a 134-121 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, seven turnovers and a career-high-tying 11 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was a ridiculous 13-of-14 from the field in the first half with eight treys, which gave him a laughable 121.4 effective field goal percentage. Curry was coming off his worst game of the season from an efficiency standpoint, but he definitely got it right back. He became the first player to hit more than 10 treys in multiple games. Get ready for a great game on Saturday night with Steph vs. Russell Westbrook. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:20 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 24 points in win
    Klay Thompson scored 24 points with four rebounds, one steal and six 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's not often a guy drops six treys in a game and one of his teammates had five more than he did. Thompson certainly has the scoring side down in his last four with an absurd 76.1 true shooting percentage and a 31.9 usage rate. That led to averages of 33.8 points, 3.0 boards, 1.5 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 5.5 treys on 60.2 percent from the field. Klay is being overshadowed big time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:10 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) to get MRI
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) will get an MRI on Thursday and is extremely unlikely to play against the Knicks on Thursday.

    Advice: He is likely looking at a multiple-game absence. With KCP out, Stanley Johnson's size on the wing should be a nice asset for the Pistons. The team also used 5.1 minutes of Brandon Jennings and Reggie Jackson next to each other in the second half alone. Johnson and Jennings are both worth very long looks with Johnson having the better upside. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:27 pm
  • Nik Stauskas scores 17 points w/ two triples
    Nik Stauskas logged 30 minutes during Wednesday's blowout loss, scoring a team-high 17 points on 5-of-7 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs, with two 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: Stauskas has back-to-back games in double figures for the first time since November, an indication of his spotty play this season. He's worth a look if you need a 3-point specialist, in the hopes that he stays hot and keeps the starting SG job, but most owners should take the wait-and-see approach. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:25 pm
  • Martin, Garnett and Pekovic all out vs. Clips
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (foot) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The severity of Martin's injury isn't known, but he might not even be in the rotation upon his return anyway. Leave him on the wire. Zach LaVine should get 30 minutes or so and is worth holding in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:09 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) out for game
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) will not return on Wednesday due to a right groin strain.

    Advice: The slip and fall apparently tweaked his muscle, which is even more worrisome because he couldn't put weight on his leg. Caldwell-Pope has been durable in his career and this is the first groin injury. If he's out, Stanley Johnson would gain even more value. There's a good chance KCP's streak of 207 straight games is in jeopardy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:44 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope goes to locker room
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope went to the locker room in the second quarter on Wednesday.

    Advice: He slipped on his own and did try to limp through the injury momentarily. Caldwell-Pope went to the ground in pain and had assistance to the locker room. He did not put much weight on the foot as he went to the locker room. Stanley Johnson replaced him as the shooting guard and would gain more value should KCP miss time. We'll have an update to start the third quarter. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:28 pm
  • McLemore off the bench, Belinelli starting
    Ben McLemore (wrist) will come off the bench against the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Advice: Marco Belinelli will stick in the starting lineup. McLemore was actually playing well before his injury and he did look good in shootaround. This move does slightly help Belinelli, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:22 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) out for Wednesday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will not play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was doubtful to play and will miss his fourth game. The Pelicans need to start winning games to prevent Evans from being a shut-down candidate. It'll be Bryce Dejean-Jones starting while Norris Cole also benefits. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:12 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play
    Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play against the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is going to rest his bothersome hamstring and it sounds like it's precautionary. The Cavs figure to get Mo Williams back in the rotation tonight, but he's not a reliable fantasy option unless you are hoping for garbage time against a shorthanded Hornets team. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:57 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) a game-time call
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) is a game-time decision to face the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has been fighting the issue for a week and only played 12 minutes on Monday, so perhaps this hamstring issue explains why. The Cavs don't need Dellavedova too much right now and could opt to throw Mo Williams back in the rotation. We'll have another update shortly. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:39 pm
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) questionable vs. LAC
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is questionable to play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was questionable for Tuesday and did not play. Martin has been out since Jan. 23 and he's also very likely to be traded. If he does play, Zach LaVine may play a little less. Martin is probably closer to doubtful for this one. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:34 am
  • Zach LaVine scores 14 w/ seven dimes
    Zach LaVine scored 14 points with seven assists, one board, two 3-pointers and four turnovers in 26 minutes vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

    Advice: He split his minutes at point guard and shooting guard, and that trend will likely continue unless Ricky Rubio goes down. The Wolves will more than likely increase his minutes after the All-Star break and he is averaging 20.6 points, 3.8 assists and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five games, so he's worth owning in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:23 pm
  • Marcus Thornton scores 18 off HOU bench
    Marcus Thornton got hot and hit 7-of-11 shots and four 3-pointers for 18 points, five rebounds, three assists and a steal in Tuesday's win.

    Advice: Thornton didn't even play on Saturday and scored two points in each of his previous two games, so if you had him in a DFS lineup tonight, pat yourself on the back. He goes on hot streaks occasionally, but has been far too inconsistent to plug into a standard lineup. And he was also up for some extra run tonight with Dwight Howard suspended and Clint Capela out with a thigh injury. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:30 pm
  • James Harden hands out season-high 14 dimes
    James Harden hit 10-of-19 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 26 points, four rebounds, a season-high 14 assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

    Advice: It wasn't a 40-point bomb like he dropped on Saturday, but it was pretty darn good. And don't look now, but he's hit at least half his shots in four of his last five games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Trevor Ariza scores 9, but fills stat sheet
    Trevor Ariza hit just 4-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer, but finished Tuesday's game with nine points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block.

    Advice: He wasn't great tonight, but did a little bit of everything, salvaging a decent line. He was red hot a week ago, but has scored nine or fewer points in three of his last four games. He should go on another hot streak at some point, but it's anyone's guess as to when it happens. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:19 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) doubtful Wednesday vs. SA
    Tyreke Evans (right knee) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Evans has missed the past three games do to tendinitis in his surgically repaired right knee, and it's looking like that number will hit four on Wednesday. Bryce Dejean-Jones should continue to start with Evans out, with Jrue Holiday being asked to do more on offense. Check back for official confirmation on Evans closer to Wednesday's tip. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:37 pm
  • G Time Flies: Gordon Hayward scores 27 points
    Gordon Hayward scored 27 points against the Bulls during a 105-96 overtime win on Monday with 12 rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 44 minutes.

    Advice: He hit a clutch shot at the rim to tie it in regulation with four seconds left and forced a turnover on the Bulls' next possession. G Time also had one of the prettiest backdoor cuts leading to a jam of the season during OT (in link below). He's playing off the ball more, but its led to fourth-round value in January. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:50 pm
  • Ray Felton gets 25 minutes
    Raymond Felton moved back to the bench against the Hawks on Monday with 13 points, one rebound, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Deron Williams (hip) getting hurt should open up a few extra minutes for Felton. Plus, he might get added run if the Mavs rest Dirk Nowitzki on Friday or Saturday. Barea is still the better pickup, but give Felton a look. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:12 pm
  • Reggie Jackson scores 19 in 31 minutes
    Reggie Jackson scored 19 points with three rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Nets on Monday.

    Advice: He's been dealing with some dehydration and he looked to have some cramping with his calves tonight. Jackson will get Tuesday off before he gets a date with the Celtics in Boston for Wednesday. Expect him to be healthy for that one. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:54 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) ruled out on Monday night
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will not play against the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: There is nothing structurally wrong, but the Pelicans likely want all of his tendinitis to go away. With Evans out, it'll be Bryce Dejean-Jones starting while Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole also benefit. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 4:22 pm
  • Reggie Jackson (dehydration) will play
    Reggie Jackson (dehydration) will play on Monday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: His status was never really in doubt and Jackson was able to play 28 minutes on Saturday despite dealing with the same issue. R-Jax should be feeling a lot better and belongs in all active lineups. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 3:43 pm
  • Jackson, Ilaysova expected to play on Monday
    Reggie Jackson (dehydration) and Ersan Ilyasova (adductor) are expected to play on Monday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: R-Jax played just 28 minutes on Saturday after coming in questionable due to dehydration, and he actually had to receive fluids after the game as a result. Regardless, he's good to go on Monday, which will keep Brandon Jennings in his bench role. Ilaysova sat out Saturday's game with the adductor strain, but it looks like he'll wind up missing just a single game. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 9:25 am
  • Kerr compares Curry to Price and Steve Nash
    Steve Kerr recently compared Stephen Curry to Mark Price and Steve Nash for his offensive abilities.

    Advice: "The two guys I’d maybe compare him the most to are Mark Price and Steve Nash in terms of the combination of ball-handling and passing and shooting range and creativity," Nash said. "But Steph has taken it to a new level. But he’s taken it to a new level in terms of just the range, the ballhanding and creativity. It’s pretty special." We agree, coach. We agree.

  • Zach LaVine returned to action on Sunday January 31. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 11:50 pm
  • Zach LaVine (ankle) gets hot late in defeat
    Zach LaVine (ankle) got hot late vs. the Blazers on Sunday, finishing 6-of-14 from the field for 14 points, with one 3-pointer, two boards, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes.

    Advice: LaVine was scorching hot prior to his injury -- in the Wolves' previous three games he averaged 25.0 points and 2.3 triples, while shooting a combined 31-of-44 from the field (70.5 percent). He saw most of his time at SG tonight, and with his minutes on the upswing it makes sense to grab him where available, if only for upside as a source of scoring, 3s, assists and FT percentage.

  • Stephen Curry struggles vs. the Knicks
    Stephen Curry struggled against the Knicks on Sunday, scoring 13 points on just 5-of-17 shooting.

    Advice: The Warriors got off to a brutal start to the game and had their lowest-scoring quarter of the season with 18 in the first, but they still got the job done to secure their seventh straight win. The Warriors are now 44-4 on the season and Curry will look to get back on track vs. the Wizards on Wednesday. He added four boards, four assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes. He has a minor cut on his forehead, but he's obviously going to be fine. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:19 pm
  • Wes Matthews' slump continues w/ 2-of-12 FGs
    Wes Matthews' slump continued on Sunday, as he shot just 2-of-12 from the field to finish with seven points, four boards, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes.

    Advice: The Mavs started a favorable stretch of their schedule with an easy win vs. the Suns, pushing them to within one game of the No. 5 seed Grizzlies. Matthews couldn't join the party offensively, going 1-of-8 from downtown, and he's now averaging just 6.8 points on 10-of-36 shooting in the Mavs' past four games. The perimeter gunner will look to get on track vs. the struggling Hawks on Monday. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:17 pm
  • Raymond Felton logs 36 minutes w/ Dirk out
    Raymond Felton started in place of Dirk Nowitzki (rest) on Sunday, notching 10 points, six rebounds, six assists and three steals without any turnovers in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Dirk has missed six games this season, with five of those DNPs coming during back-to-back sets. The Mavs play another back-to-back on Feb. 5/6, so Felton could earn another start if Nowitzki's four-game week is trimmed to three. The veteran guard is still just an occasional punt option in DFS leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:16 pm
  • Klay Thompson drops 34 points in win vs. NYK
    Klay Thompson dropped a game-high 34 points in Sunday's 116-95 win over the Knicks, adding two assists, one board, one steal and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: Is there a hotter player in the NBA right now? Thompson has been unconscious over his last three games, averaging 37.0 points, 2.7 boards, 2.0 assists and 5.3 pointers on 65.6 percent shooting from the field. Needless to say, he has been the best player in standard leagues in that span. This pace is not sustainable, but he should be a top-20 player the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:13 pm
  • Andre Iguodala plays 23 minutes in win
    Andre Iguodala (rest) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday vs. the Knicks and finished with eight points, four assists, four boards and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

    Advice: He hit his only two shot attempts from the field and had a couple of turnovers, but the Warriors didn't really need him tonight because they took care of business early on. Iguodala was averaging 6.6 points, 4.0 boards, 3.4 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.7 3-pointers during the month of January prior to Sunday, so he's not a must-own player in standard leagues while the Warriors are healthy. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 6:58 pm
  • Zach LaVine (ankle) is not on injury report
    Zach LaVine (ankle) is not on the injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: He appeared to tweak his ankle on Friday, but his status was never in doubt for Sunday's game. He is averaging 25.0 points, 3.3 assists, 2.3 boards, 0.7 steals and 2.3 3-pointers per game over his last three and should be in all lineups until he cools off. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 4:47 pm
  • Raymond Felton will start on Sunday
    Raymond Felton will start on Sunday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Dirk Nowitzki (rest) is getting the night off, so Chandler Parsons will start at power forward and Wesley Matthews will move to the three. Felton has been solid this season, but he's nothing more than a short-term option in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 3:58 pm
  • Austin Rivers scores 16 points w/ five treys
    Austin Rivers had his second consecutive productive outing on Sunday, scoring 16 points on 5-of-7 shooting to go with five 3-pointers, one assist, one rebound and three turnovers in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Rivers has played very well over the past two games, putting up averages of 16.5 points, 3.0 three-pointers, 1.0 assist, 1.0 steal, 1.0 block and 2.0 turnovers per game while shooting at a ridiculous 61.9 percent clip. That shooting percentage obviously isn't sustainable, and his next stinker is likely right around the corner. He's still not a very good pick up in most formats as he doesn't do a lot aside from score and hit 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 3:52 pm
  • Harden drops 40, Rockets lose third straight
    James Harden dropped 40 points in Saturday's 123-122 loss to the Wizards, adding 11 assists, seven boards, four steals and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: The Wizards had no answer for him on the defensive end and he even fouled Garrett Temple out of the game. The Rockets have lost three straight games, but Harden has been playing some incredible ball with averages of 30.2 points, 8.6 boards, 7.6 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 3.0 treys over his last five games.
