  • Chris McCullough has a 14-minute limit
    Chris McCullough said that he's restricted to no more than 14 minutes per game for the time being.

    Advice: He spent over a year rehabbing his surgically-repaired knee, so it's not a surprise that the Nets are easing him into the rotation. The 21-year-old forward is one of the few building blocks that Brooklyn has, but the Nets would have to make a trade or two at the deadline to open up some more minutes. For now, McCullough is just a stash in dynasty leagues. Today, 9:19 am
  • John Henson will be re-evaluated after ASB
    John Henson (back) will be re-evaluated after the All-Star break.

    Advice: The Bucks took the cautious approach with Henson and held him out for seven straight games. He will hopefully be good to go after the break, and he isn't the worst stash if you need blocks in case the Bucks decide to move Greg Monroe at the deadline. He owns season averages of 6.8 points, 3.9 boards, 1.0 assist and 2.0 blocks in 16.7 minutes. Today, 8:19 am
  • Heat looking to trade Jarnell Stokes?
    The Heat are reportedly willing to trade Jarnell Stokes for a second round pick.

    Advice: Stokes has only made a handful of brief appearances for Miami and he has spent the majority of his time in the D-League, so the Heat are simply looking to open up a roster spot. Unless Stokes is traded to an ideal situation, he would likely be looking at a very limited role. He's not worth stashing at this point. Today, 7:53 am
  • Drew Gooden questionable for Thurs vs Bucks
    Drew Gooden (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Gooden could be in line for some extra minutes if he's able to play as Kris Humphries (illness) is also questionable, but he's only averaging 2.0 points and 2.6 rebounds over his last five games so there isn't much fantasy value here. If both players sit, DeJuan Blair and Nene would see a small boost in playing time. Yesterday, 10:56 am
  • Kris Humphries questionable for Thurs vs MIL
    Kris Humphries (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: It's worth noting that Humphries is questionable due to illness rather than the knee injury that kept him out for 17 games, but it sounds like he may miss yet another game on Thursday. With Drew Gooden (illness) also questionable, DeJuan Blair and Nene could be in line for some extra minutes against Milwaukee. Yesterday, 10:49 am
  • Noah Vonleh (ankle) doesn't leave bench Wed
    Noah Vonleh (ankle) was available to play on Wednesday but he did not leave the Blazers' bench.

    Advice: Vonleh missed the past three games due to injury but he was apparently a DNP-CD tonight. Terry Stotts may simply have been playing it safe with Vonleh, to avoid a setback with the All-Star break looming, but either way he belongs on the waiver wire. In 39 starts this season, Vonleh has averaged just 4.1 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. Wednesday, 10:55 pm
  • Meyers Leonard scores 14 points off bench
    Meyers Leonard shifted to the bench on Wednesday, where he contributed 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting, with eight rebounds and one block in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Leonard earned a handful of starts during Noah Vonleh's absence with an ankle injury, but it was Moe Harkless taking the starting PF job tonight. This is a good indication of Leonard's upside as a source of scoring, 3-pointers and rebounds, but it's rarely been on display this season -- he should be unowned outside of deep leagues. Wednesday, 10:54 pm
  • Clint Capela gets some PF minutes
    Clint Capela scored one point with 10 rebounds in 17 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He actually played some minutes at power forward, but that might not continue based on coach J.B. Bickerstaff calling his team "broken" after the game. Capela can stay on the wire in most leagues. Wednesday, 10:37 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver starts for Ilyasova (ill)
    Anthony Tolliver started Wednesday's game in place of Ersan Ilyasova (illness), posting six points, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in 35 minutes.

    Advice: The veteran's main virtue is perimeter shooting, as he's averaging 1.4 triples on 36.7 percent shooting beyond the arc. He does almost nothing else to help fantasy owners, however, which limits him to being a deep-league specialist. Wednesday, 9:49 pm
  • Joffrey Lauvergne logs 21 minutes in Detroit
    Joffrey Lauvergne came off the bench for four points, four rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes during Wednesday's road win in Detroit.

    Advice: He played 29 minutes on Sunday, nearly fell out of the rotation on Monday, and was back in Mike Malone's good graces tonight. Lauvergne's role is too mercurial to trust him in nearly any league, and things will only get worse if Darrell Arthur (quad) is still around after the trade deadline. Wednesday, 9:43 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (quad) doesn't play Wednesday
    Darrell Arthur (quad) didn't leave the Nuggets' bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was doubtful to play so this shouldn't have surprised fantasy owners, and his absence shifted more minutes to Jusuf Nurkic and Joffrey Lauvergne. Arthur has been listed as day-to-day, so he should be ready to go after getting more than a week of rest during the break. Wednesday, 9:41 pm
  • Paul Pierce plays at Boston...for last time?
    Paul Pierce played 22 minutes vs. the Celtics on Wednesday, finishing with six points on a pair of 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist and one block.

    Advice: Pierce admitted that this might have been his final game in Boston, and the home crowd let him feel the love with a sustained ovation. If it was the Truth's final game at the TD Garden, he'll finish with a lofty spot in franchise history -- he's fourth in games played, third in minutes, second in points, first in free throws made, six in assists, seventh in rebounds, fourth in blocks, first in steals, and first in 3-pointers. Wednesday, 9:08 pm
  • Richaun Holmes (ankle) plays well in 15 mins
    Richaun Holmes (ankle) posted eight points, two rebounds, one steal and four blocks in 15 minutes vs. the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Holmes was cleared to play on Monday but never stepped on the court -- he was the first big man off the bench tonight because Nerlens Noel (knee) was unavailable. He was impressive in limited minutes, giving the short-handed Sixers another physical presence in the paint, but he's not worth fantasy owners' attention with Noel day-to-day. Wednesday, 8:53 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky plays well in 30 minutes Wed
    Frank Kaminsky played well in 30 minutes off the bench vs. Indiana, posting 10 points, eight rebounds, two assists and one block, with a pair of 3-pointers.

    Advice: Charlotte had lost 12 straight road games to the Pacers prior to tonight's victory, which featured a stellar effort from the Hornets' reserves -- they combined for 54 points on 58.3 percent shooting, including a 7-of-14 mark from downtown. Kaminsky's minutes continue to see-saw with Marvin Williams, but Marvin is easily the more appealing fantasy option. Wednesday, 7:13 pm
  • Noah Vonleh will be active vs. Rockets
    Coach Terry Stotts said Noah Vonleh (ankle) will be active for Wednesday against the Rockets.

    Advice: In usual Stotts fashion, he didn't say anything else and Vonleh may not play. He was probable and was playing well, so there's a good chance he'll play. You won't want to use him in DFS tonight. Wednesday, 5:52 pm
  • Larry Nance is pain-free now
    Larry Nance (knee) is pain-free and has ramped up his workouts.

    Advice: He should be close to ready to go after the break. Nance may have been Wally Pipp'd by Julius Randle, who has been playing well. Nance can be left on the wire in most leagues. Wednesday, 4:01 pm
  • Paul Pierce back against the Celtics
    Paul Pierce (rest) will return against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Advice: Of course he's playing in TD Garden after sitting out on Monday. PIerce will take a couple minutes away from Lance Stephenson, Luc Mbah a Moute and Wes Johnson. The Truth doesn't have much fantasy value. Wednesday, 3:15 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver will start Wednesday vs. DEN
    Anthony Tolliver will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets with Ersan Illyasova (illness) unavailable.

    Advice: Tolliver could be getting some heavy minutes tonight with Detroit so banged up, and with a favorable matchup against Denver, he's someone to consider as a punt play in DFS. Wednesday, 3:00 pm
  • Jarnell Stokes sent back to the D-League
    Jarnell Stokes has been assigned to Miami's D-League affiliate.

    Advice: He's going down for the D-League All-Star game. Stokes is not a fantasy option in any format. Wednesday, 2:23 pm
  • John Henson out again for Thursday
    John Henson (back) will not play against the Wizards on Thursday.

    Advice: It'll be Miles Plumlee starting again on Thursday. Hopefully, Henson will be back after the break and get close to 20 minutes. He's not the worst stash out there on the off chance the Bucks break up their team. Wednesday, 12:30 pm
  • Kris Humphries plays four minutes in return
    Kris Humphries returned from a knee injury and played four scoreless minutes on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's been out for more than a month and will be worked back into action slowly. Nothing to see here, folks. Tuesday, 8:14 pm
  • Kris Humphries (knee) available to play Tues
    Kris Humphries (knee) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Humphries will more than likely be eased back into things after spending over a month on the sidelines, and with averages of just 6.7 points and 4.2 boards on the year, Kris isn't worth owning in any setting. Tuesday, 3:58 pm
  • Noah Vonleh (ankle) probable for Wednesday
    Noah Vonleh (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Vonleh's return could push Moe Harkless back to the bench, and is his value will take a significant hit with the return to the second-unit. Vonleh is averaging just 16 minutes per game as Portland's starting power forward and isn't worth owning in most leagues. Tuesday, 3:05 pm
  • Kris Humphries practices again on Tuesday
    Kris Humphries (knee) practiced for the second consecutive day on Tuesday.

    Advice: We're considering Humphries questionable for Tuesday's game against the Knicks, but all signs are pointing to him being available. With Nene on a minutes limit, Hump would be fighting for minutes with Drew Gooden and DeJuan Blair if active, though none would be worth a start in standard fantasy leagues. Tuesday, 9:32 am
  • Meyers Leonard plays 13 minutes
    Meyers Leonard scored three points with two rebounds and one turnover in 13 minutes against the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: He started the scoring with a 3-pointer tonight, but that was it after that. Leonard was awesome against the Grizzlies in the postseason last year, but it just isn't happening for the Legend this year. He is only a hold in deep leagues right now. Monday, 9:40 pm
  • Chris McCullough plays 11 minutes in debut
    Chris McCullough (knee) played 11 minutes in his NBA debut on Monday vs. the Nuggets, scoring two points with two boards, one block and one steal.

    Advice: The rookie was incredibly active in his limited minutes and his athleticism really stood out. The Nets are obviously going to ease him into the rotation because of how much time he missed due to his knee surgery, so expect him to have some minute restrictions for a while. He's an excellent stash in dynasty formats and owners in deeper leagues should keep an eye on him. Monday, 6:57 pm
  • Meyers Leonard, Mason Plumlee to start
    Meyers Leonard will start next to Mason Plumlee on Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: The Grizzlies start a frontcourt featuring Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol, so the Blazers need Leonard's size tonight. Leonard has been inconsistent all season, so he's not a great add in most leagues. The move will send Moe Harkless to the bench. Monday, 5:08 pm
  • Noah Vonleh (ankle) will not play Monday
    Noah Vonleh (ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: This will be his third game on the shelf and this probably means that he won't play on Wednesday vs. the Rockets either. Moe Harkless has benefitted the most in his absence, while Al-Farouq Aminu should play a few more minutes as well. Monday, 3:34 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (quad) ruled out Monday
    Darrell Arthur (quad) will not play on Monday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: In addition to Monday's game, Arthur is also expected to sit out on Wednesday vs. the Pistons. Kenneth Faried should be busy on Monday, while Danilo Gallinari should spend a lot of time at the four as well. Arthur belongs on the wire in most leagues. Monday, 3:19 pm
  • Chris McCullough (knee) could debut Monday
    Chris McCullough (knee) could make his NBA debut on Monday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: A previous report said that he is expected to play, but coach Tony Brown said the rookie will only play if the right situation presents itself. He has been rehabbing his knee for about a year, so expect his minutes to be very limited right out of the gate. Owners in deeper leagues should keep an eye on him. Monday, 3:12 pm
  • Paul Pierce out Monday, Wes Johnson starting
    Paul Pierce (rest) will not play against the 76ers on Monday.

    Advice: It's the second half of a back-to-back after the road win on Sunday. Pierce is likely going to be ready for Wednesday, but he's not worth using in most leagues. Monday, 2:47 pm
  • Richaun Holmes is back for Monday
    Richuan Holmes (ankle) will play against the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: His return may mean there could be fewer lineup combos of Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor. Holmes is likely only going to get minutes in the teens, so he's not a fantasy option. Monday, 2:28 pm
  • John Henson (back) remains out on Tuesday
    John Henson (back) did not practice on Monday, and he will not play on Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: This will now be six straight games in street clothes for Henson, and there is no clear timetable for his return. It's irresponsible to stash Henson in standard formats considering he's just a blocks specialist even when healthy, but those in deeper leagues (16-plus teams) should wait until we get a clear diagnosis until making a decision. The time off during All-Star Weekend should help. Monday, 10:32 am
  • Kris Humphries (knee) could play Tuesday
    Kris Humphries (knee) practiced on Monday, and there is a "good chance" he plays on Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Humphries' last time on the floor was January 3. Leave him on the wire. Monday, 9:52 am
  • Darrell Arthur (quad) questionable on Monday
    Darrell Arthur (quad) is questionable for Monday's game vs. Brooklyn.

    Advice: Denver's big men are healthy and the Nuggets are occasionally going small with Will Barton and Danilo Gallinari, so between that and Arthur's consistent health issues, his fantasy appeal is currently nonexistent. Monday, 9:39 am
  • Malone hints at more minutes for Lauvergne
    Mike Malone hinted that Joffrey Lauvergne will receive more playing time moving forward.

    Advice: Lauvergne is coming off of a double-double in 29 minutes on Sunday, and Malone is looking to reward the big man. "I've been trying to play him lately because I think Joffrey's work ethic and his character are going to be big pieces moving forward," Malone said. With Nikola Jokic locked into place as the starting center, this is bad news for the out of shape Jusuf Nurkic. Monday, 9:19 am
  • Joffrey Lauvergne double-doubles in 29 mins
    Joffrey Lauvergne double-doubled in 29 minutes on Sunday, scoring 12 points with 10 rebounds (four offensive), one assist, one block and three turnovers.

    Advice: Lauvergne earned most of his minutes as a backup center, even playing ahead of Nikola Jokic down the stretch, though he also played some PF alongside Jusuf Nurkic due to the absence of Darrell Arthur (quad). Lauvergne has fallen out of the rotation for long stretches, and he's exceeded 30 minutes once all season, so he's only worth a glance in very deep leagues. Sunday, 1:27 pm
  • Noah Vonleh (ankle) doubtful Monday vs. MEM
    Noah Vonleh (left ankle) is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Vonleh has spent the past two games on the sidelines which has resulted in Moe Harkless entering the staring five and Al-Farouq Aminu logging some extended minutes at the four-spot. It'll be more of the same on Monday with Vonleh likely to spend that game on the sidelines. Harkless is someone to consider swooping up for his short-term appeal in deep leagues. Sunday, 11:55 am
  • Chris McCullough expected to play Monday
    Chris McCullough (knee) is expected to make his season debut on Monday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: The rookie has been rehabbing a knee injury all season and he was on the active roster for the first time on Friday. McCullough will likely be very limited right out of the gate, but he's worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues. Sunday, 8:54 am
  • Jarnell Stokes recalled from D-League
    The Heat have recalled Jarnell Stokes from the D-League.

    Advice: He will be available to play against the Clippers on Sunday, but he likely won't touch the floor. Leave him on the wire. Sunday, 8:47 am
  • Darrell Arthur (quad) ruled out Sunday
    Darrell Arthur (quad) will not play on Sunday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Arthur just can't catch a break and hasn't been able to stay healthy this season. Kenneth Faried is healthy, so Arthur wouldn't have played much anyways. Expect Danilo Gallinari to play a lot of four against the Knicks as well. Sunday, 8:40 am
  • Anthony Tolliver scores 17 points in loss
    Anthony Tolliver scored 17 points with four rebounds, one assist, three steals and five 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

    Advice: He took some minutes away from Ersan Ilyasova tonight because Ilyasova couldn't connect on anything. Tolliver could potentially benefit from the Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) injury because Marcus Morris can play all small forward, but he'll need to do it again after not playing more than 19 minutes in any of his previous three games. Saturday, 7:03 pm
  • Meyers Leonard scores three points
    Meyers Leonard played just 15 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday with three points, seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and four turnovers.

    Advice: This comes with Allen Crabbe (illness) and Noah Vonleh (ankle) out. He even made his teammate Gerald Henderson mad for missing a read on a play. Leonard is not the same player he was last year, so even the biggest Legend backers have to be off that bandwagon for this season. Saturday, 5:16 pm
  • Clint Capela doesn't score in 14 minutes
    Clint Capela did not score in 14 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday, adding six rebounds and two blocks.

    Advice: If you want to look at a positive on this, he did play some minutes next to Dwight Howard tonight. Capela had the ol' 0.0 usage rate tonight and he's clearly trending down in fantasy leagues. Plus, with such little playing time while Terrence Jones (concussion) is out, it makes it obvious he's a cut candidate. Saturday, 4:55 pm
  • Richaun Holmes ruled out
    Richaun Holmes (ankle) will not play against the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: He was always expected to miss this game and now it's official. We barely saw lineup combos with Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor on Friday, which will probably continue tonight. Holmes isn't a fantasy option. Saturday, 3:01 pm
  • Kris Humphries out again on Saturday
    Kris Humphries (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Hornets.

    Advice: He doesn't have a timetable to return and chances are Humphries is out until the break. Saturday, 2:38 pm
  • Noah Vonleh out, Moe Harkless starting again
    Noah Vonleh (ankle) will not play on Saturday against the Rockets.

    Advice: It'll be Moe Harkless getting another start, but that doesn't mean much with Harkless only getting 16 minutes on Thursday. Allen Crabbe figures to get a nice bump here with some smaller lineups while Al-Farouq Aminu plays a lot of four. Vonleh could be back before the break. Saturday, 12:35 pm
  • Noah Vonleh (ankle) is doubtful Saturday
    Noah Vonleh (ankle) is doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Moe Harkless drew the start against the Raptors on Thursday, so the Blazers will likely stick with the same lineup since the Rockets are starting Trevor Ariza at the four. Vonleh only plays minutes in the teens despite the fact that he has been starting at power forward, so he's not worth owning in most leagues. Saturday, 8:22 am
  • Frank Kaminsky goes scoreless
    Frank Kaminsky did not score in 16 minutes with three rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 16 minutes against the Heat on Friday.

    Advice: He's lost all his momentum as Marvin Williams is running away with the power forward minutes. Plus, Marvin plays all his minutes at power forward now because of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist being back, so there is little opportunity for Frank. If you haven't already, drop him. Friday, 8:00 pm
  • John Henson (back) out Friday vs. the Jazz
    John Henson (back) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: It'll be Henson's fifth straight game on the sidelines, which will allow Miles Plumlee to get some extra run, although that doesn't matter in almost any league. Henson is nothing more than a shot blocking specialist, and he's not really worth holding onto in standard leagues. Friday, 5:31 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (quad) out for Friday vs. CHI
    Darrell Arthur (quad) will not play against the Bulls on Friday.

    Advice: He is hurt quite often and could miss more games. That means we should see some more Danilo Gallinari at the four, which means more run for Will Barton and Gary Harris. Arthur can be ignored in most leagues while he's hurt. Friday, 4:23 pm
  • Chris McCullough active for Nets on Friday
    Nets rookie Chris McCullough will be on the active roster on Friday.

    Advice: McCullough has been out due to a knee injury all season and this is the first time he'll be active, though it's unlikely that he'll get any playing time. "It's gravy to get him games this season," interim coach Tony Brown said recently. "Experience wise, he's behind. Even though he was hurt, potentially, if he was healthy he could be a lottery pick in next year's draft." For now, he's not worth touching in re-draft leagues. Friday, 3:39 pm
  • Kris Humphries (knee) will not play
    Kris Humphries (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: The big man is reporteldy progressing, but there is still no clear return date in sight. Leave him on the wire in all leagues. Friday, 11:14 am
  • Nuggets looking to deal Joffrey Lauvergne?
    The Nuggets would reportedly want a late first-round pick in exchange for Joffrey Lauvergne.

    Advice: King Joffrey is behind Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic on the depth chart, so it wouldn't be a surprise if the Nuggets tried to deal him at the deadline. Nothing is imminent at the moment, so there's no real reason to stash Lauvergne in most formats. The 24-year-old center is averaging 7.8 points and 5.2 boards in 17.6 minutes per game this season. Friday, 9:35 am
  • Richaun Holmes (ankle) to miss two games
    Richaun Holmes sprained his ankle in practice and is expected to miss the next two games.

    Advice: This means he will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards or Saturday against the Nets. The rookie has had some tough luck with injuries this season, but there's not many fantasy implications because he usually just plays minutes in the teens. Carl Landry and Jerami Grant could each pick up a few extra minutes. Friday, 8:35 am
  • Clint Capela returned to action on Thursday February 4. Thursday, 11:40 pm
  • Meyers Leonard scored nine points
    Meyers Leonard scored nine points with five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

    Advice: The 7'1" big has one block and one steal combined since Jan. 13. He's not rebounding and he's not shooting the ball well, so it's almost impossible to defend him as a hold right now in standard leagues. Noah Vonleh (ankle) shouldn't be out long. He barely has top-200 value in 2016. Thursday, 10:17 pm
  • Clint Capela scores 10 points
    Clint Capela scored 10 points with four rebounds and two blocks in 15 minutes against the Suns on Thursday.

    Advice: He did not play next to Dwight Howard at all and those days might be done. Capela isn't the greatest per-minute guy and those are trending down, too. He's a drop candidate unless you want to use him as Dwight Howard insurance. Thursday, 9:17 pm
  • Meyers Leonard listed as the starter
    Meyers Leonard is listed as the starter on Thursday against the Raptors for Noah Vonleh (ankle).

    Advice: This is pretty useless info because coach Terry Stotts make changes all the time. We'll pass along anything additional as it comes along. Thursday, 6:07 pm
  • Noah Vonleh (ankle) out for Thursday night
    Noah Vonleh (ankle) is out against the Raptors on Thursday.

    Advice: He was doubtful for this game and could miss time. The Blazers are more likely to go small tonight with Al-Farouq Aminu getting run at the four. Also, the Blazers have used Allen Crabbe at the three for about six minutes per game recently. Meyers Leonard may also see a bump. Thursday, 5:19 pm
  • Clint Capela (hip) cleared to play vs. PHX
    Clint Capela (hip) has been cleared to play against the Suns on Thursday.

    Advice: He will come off the bench behind Dwight Howard, who hasn't finished a game in over a week due to ejections and a suspension. The Rockets are likely going to go small a lot, so Capela isn't a great fantasy asset right now. Thursday, 4:34 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (quad) doubtful Friday vs. CHI
    Darrell Arthur (left quad) is doubtful to play Friday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: With averages of just 7.0 points and 4.0 rebounds per game, Arthur isn't worth owning in most leagues. Thursday, 3:21 pm
  • Jarnell Stokes sent back down to D-League
    Jarnell Stokes has been sent down for yet another D-League stint.

    Advice: He's played in just four games for the Heat this season, leave him on the wire. Thursday, 2:20 pm
  • Clint Capela (hip) a game-time decision Thurs
    Clint Capela (left hip flexor, thigh) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Donatas Motiejunas said that the reason he's headed back to the D-League on Thursday is because "Clint is healthy," and Capela reportedly ran around at shootaround with "little difficulty," so it sounds like he'll be out there tonight. With Clint active, Marcus Thornton's minutes will likely take the biggest hit. Thursday, 12:43 pm
  • Clint Capela (hip) moving well at shootaround
    Clint Capela (left hip flexor, thigh) was moving well during Thursday morning's shootaround, according to beat reporter Jonathan Feigen.

    Advice: The Rockets sent Donatas Motiejunas back to the D-League on Thursday, which could be an indication that Capela is feeling good enough to play. We'll have another update on his status closer to tip-off, but if Capela is out there, there will be less minutes available for Josh Smith and Marcus Thornton. Thursday, 11:23 am
  • Frank Kaminsky scores 15 points on 7-of-8 FGs
    Frank Kaminsky made 7-of-8 field goals, including one 3-pointer, to finish Wednesday's game with 15 points, six rebounds (three offensive) and one assist in 24 minutes.

    Advice: His effective play off the bench earned Kaminsky a few more minutes, but he's a dubious fantasy asset while Marvin Williams (16 points in 24 minutes) is playing well as a starter. Leave the Tank on the wire. Wednesday, 7:17 pm
  • Kris Humphries (knee) will not play
    Kris Humphries (knee) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: The big man is nearing a return and went through a workout during the morning shootaround, but he still hasn't been cleared to play. His role will be limited when he returns because the Wizards are playing a lot of small ball, so he's not worth stashing in almost any league. Wednesday, 3:20 pm
  • Noah Vonleh (ankle) doubtful for Thursday
    Noah Vonleh (left ankle) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Raptors.

    Advice: He said he was fine on Tuesday, but apparently it swelled up on him. If Vonleh is out, Meyers Leonard will likely get his first chance to start since his injured shoulder. There should also be a lot of minutes at the four for Al-Farouq Aminu, which opens up some run for Allen Crabbe in this kind of matchup. Wednesday, 12:28 pm
  • Clint Capela (hip) questionable for Thursday
    Clint Capela (left hip flexor, thigh) is questionable to play Thursday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: If Capela is unable to give it a go tomorrow, look for Josh Smith and Terrence Jones to see an uptick in minutes, with Smith offering the most upside. Houston could also go with some more small ball lineups against the up-tempo Suns, which would result in Corey Brewer and Marcus Thornton getting some extended run. Wednesday, 10:02 am
  • Darrell Arthur (quad) out Wednesday vs. Utah
    Darrell Arthur (left quad soreness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Staying healthy is a constant battle for Arthur, and he's been losing minutes to Kenneth Faried, Jusuf Nurkic and Nikola Jokic as of late. There's little incentive to own Arthur in most leagues. Wednesday, 9:53 am
  • Kris Humphries (knee) misses shootaround
    Kris Humphries (knee) worked out, but did not participate during Wednesday morning's shootaround.

    Advice: With Humphries sitting out shootaround, we're going to go ahead and consider him doubtful for tonight's game given that he hasn't played since January 3. He belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Wednesday, 9:02 am
  • Noah Vonleh not concerned about ankle sprain
    Noah Vonleh downplayed the sprained ankle that forced him out of Tuesday's game, saying that the ankle injury is "nothing major."

    Advice: "I got X-Rays. They said there were no breaks and it wasn't nothing major," Vonleh said after the game. "Just a little swelling. It should go down pretty quick. It's feeling a little sore, but I don't think it's anything major." For now we'll be considering Noah questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Raptors, and if he's forced to miss any time, Meyers Leonard will see a boost in playing time. Vonleh is only averaging 16 minutes a game despite starting for Portland, so he belongs on the waiver wire in all re-draft leagues. Wednesday, 7:42 am
  • Meyers Leonard scores nine points in win
    Meyers Leonard scored nine points with five boards, two assists and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes vs. the Bucks on Tuesday.

    Advice: The minutes were nice, but the production could've been a little better. He scored 13 points with three treys in 32 minutes on Sunday, but he has been very inconsistent all season. However, Noah Vonleh went down with an ankle sprain and could miss time, so Leonard could be looking at additional minutes moving forward. For now, just put him on your radar if you could use a big capable of knocking down a couple of treys. Tuesday, 9:27 pm
  • Clint Capela, Montrezl Harrell out Tuesday
    Clint Capela (thigh) and Montrezl Harrell (illness) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Josh Smith is expected to start at center, but Terrence Jones will likely split minutes with him. Capela is day-to-day, but he isn't worth picking up in most leagues because Dwight Howard is dealing with just a one-game suspension. Tuesday, 4:15 pm
  • Clint Capela (thigh) questionable for Tuesday
    Clint Capela (thigh) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: With Dwight Howard (suspension) set to spend Tuesday's game on the sidelines, Terrence Jones could make his way back into the rotation tonight if Capela is unable to play, and there would be more minutes available for Josh Smith. The Rockets would also likely go with a lot of small ball lineups sans Capela, which would translate to more minutes for Corey Brewer and Marcus Thornton. Stay tuned. Tuesday, 2:07 pm
  • Chris McCullough targeting return on Monday
    Chris McCullough (knee) is targeting a return to the court on Monday.

    Advice: McCullough will be active this weekend, but is doubtful to play and will target Monday or Wednesday before the All-Star Break. While McCullough has upside, his minutes will be limited once he returns and his fantasy value is thus limited to deeper leagues. Tuesday, 9:45 am
  • John Henson out Tuesday vs Trail Blazers
    John Henson (back) will miss Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    Advice: Henson will miss his fourth consecutive game on Tuesday and shouldn't be owned in anything by deeper fantasy leagues at this point. Miles Plumlee will see some extra run against the Blazers, but doesn't carry much fantasy value. Tuesday, 7:40 am
