  • Matt Bonner (calf) will not play on Wednesday
    Matt Bonner (calf) will not play on Wednesday against the Magic.

    Advice: He has a history of calf pulls and the All-Star break is coming at the right time. Bonner may not have played anyway with Tim Duncan (knee) back tonight. Rotoworld.com 55 minutes ago
  • Kyle Anderson is back for Wednesday
    Kyle Anderson (illness) will play against the Magic on Wednesday.

    Advice: He missed Tuesday due to an illness. With Tim Duncan (knee) back tonight, Anderson is less likely to be a contributor unless it gets to garbage time. Although, it makes it slightly less likely we see extra Jonathon Simmons. Rotoworld.com 58 minutes ago
  • Nikola Pekovic (ankle, foot) out Wednesday
    Nikola Pekovic (ankle, foot) will not play Wednesday vs. Toronto.

    Advice: He hasn't done anything of significance during his 12 games on the court this season, and belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:48 am
  • Kevin Garnett, Nikola Pekovic out Wednesday
    Kevin Garnett (sore right knee) and Nikola Pekovic (sore right ankle) have been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: Both Garnett and Pekovic belong on the waiver wire in all leagues. Gorgui Dieng will continue to see his minutes unimpeded as Minnesota's starting power forward with both The Big Ticket and Big Pek out. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:44 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
  • 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
  • C.J. Watson (calf) probable Wednesday vs. SA
    C.J. Watson (calf) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Watson has been sidelined since November 9 with the calf injury, so he'll more than likely be brought along very slowly following such a lengthy absence. There's no reason to pick him up in most leagues, but Watson will likely take away most of Shabazz Napier's minutes once he's fully up to speed. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:25 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.

  • 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
  • Marreese Speights plays well off the bench
    Marreese Speights played well off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Rockets, scoring 15 points with four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 12 minutes.

    Advice: He scored 15 points in his last outing and has taken firm control of the backup center spot with Festus Ezeli (knee) out indefinitely. However, Speights is only going to play minutes in the teens on most occasions, so he's not a great add outside of deeper formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:22 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
  • 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
  • Jonathan Simmons quietly making noise
    Jonathan Simmons played 23 minutes and had 10 points, four rebounds and one assist on 5-of-9 shooting in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

    Advice: Simmons has played 23 or 24 minutes in three straight games and is averaging 9.0 points and 2.3 rebounds over that stretch, but you'd obviously have to be in a really deep league to think about adding him to your roster. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Patty Mills plays just 16 minutes in win
    Patty Mills played 16 minutes and hit 2-of-6 shots and two 3-pointers for eight points, three rebounds, one assist and a steal on Tuesday.

    Advice: Mills was playing very well coming into this one and offers some intrigue due to Manu Ginobili's surgery, but as long as he's coming off the bench for Gregg Popovich, new owners have to realize that nights like this one could happen more often than they'd like. He's still worth a deep-league grab with Manu out, but he's not an automatic starter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Boban Marjanovic scores 11 in 13 minutes
    Boban Marjanovic played 13 minutes and had 11 points, six rebounds and a steal off the Spurs bench on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's intriguing, for sure. But he's just as likely to score three points, or not play, as he is performing like he did tonight. He's averaging just 5.8 points, 4.5 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in 10 minutes over his last five games, which just doesn't compute for adding him to your roster. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Kyle Anderson (illness) out Tuesday vs. MIA
    Kyle Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: With Anderson on the sidelines, there will be more minutes available for David West and Boris Diaw. None of these guys can be considered viable targets in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:04 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
  • Nikola Pekovic is out for Monday
    Nikola Pekovic (ankle, foot) will not play against the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: He doesn't have a target date and is likely out for this week. Pekovic can be left on the wire in basically all leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:38 pm
  • KG out for Monday against Pelicans
    Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play against the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: He probably won't be back until next week. Gorgui Dieng is getting huge minutes and that should continue going forward. Leave Garnett on the wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:37 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
  • Matt Bonner out for Tuesday night
    Matt Bonner (calf) will not play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: He hurt his calf at the end of Friday's game. Bonner has dealt with calf issues before and he's likely out until after the break. There will be a few extra minutes for Boris Diaw and David West. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:26 am
  • 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
  • Garnett endorses Sam Mitchell, coaching staff
    Kevin Garnett recently praised interim coach Sam Mitchell and his staff for the job they've done this season.

    Advice: "I feel real good about the progression of this team since Day 1, and I think it needs to be said and needs to be understood that I’m endorsing Sam Mitchell and our coaching staff and this organization," Garnett said. KG's words carry weight in the organization, but that may not prevent a coaching change at the end of the season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:16 am
  • Nikola Pekovic (ankle) doubtful Monday vs. NO
    Nikola Pekovic (ankle) is doubtful to play vs. the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: Pekovic is perpetually injured and belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Gorgui Dieng will continue to see his minutes unimpeded with both Kevin Garnett (knee) and Pekovic unlikely for Monday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:14 pm
  • Kevin Garnett, Nikola Pekovic doubtful Monday
    Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) are doubtful to play Monday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Neither guy is a major part of the rotation, and both can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues. Gorgui Dieng will continue to earn minutes in the high-30s as Minnesota's starting power forward with both Garnett and Big Pek out. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:12 pm
  • 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
  • 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
  • Pek out for Saturday
    Nikola Pekovic (ankle, foot) will not play on Saturday against the Bulls.

    Advice: Gorgui Dieng continues to get major minutes and is move involved in the offense now too. Pekovic can be ignored in basically all leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:39 pm
  • KG out for Saturday vs. Bulls
    Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: He is not close to a return and is likely out through the break. Garnett can be ignored in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:38 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
  • 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
  • Matt Bonner (calf) out Saturday
    Matt Bonner (calf) will not play on Saturday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: He picked up the injury during Friday's blowout win over the Mavs, but he's not a regular in the rotation even with Tim Duncan (knee) out. Leave Bonner on the wire. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:06 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
  • Patty Mills scores 16 points with two treys
    Patty Mills scored 16 points on 6-of-8 shooting Friday to go with two 3-pointers and four rebounds in 15 minutes of floor time.

    Advice: Mills could have some more minutes falling his way with Manu Ginobili (testicular surgery) set to spend at least the next month on the sidelines, but he's not much more than a 3-point specialist in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:05 pm
  • Matt Bonner (calf) heads to locker room
    Matt Bonner went to the locker room with a left calf injury and did not return

    Advice: With Friday's game being a massive blowout, Bonner was finally able to get into the rotation, but he lasted just four minutes. He's not worth owning in any league, not even with Tim Duncan (knee) out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:59 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
  • Nikola Pekovic (foot, ankle) doubtful vs. CHI
    Nikola Pekovic (foot, ankle) is doubtful to play vs. the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: No surprise here. The burly center can't shake his ankle injuries and coach Sam Mitchell said that he's not close to returning, so it's possible the Wolves will shut him down until the All-Star break. He shouldn't be owned. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:47 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
  • Kevin Garnett (leg) doubtful Saturday vs. CHI
    Kevin Garnett (leg) is doubtful to play Saturday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Garnett isn't close to making a return, so plan on him being out tomorrow. Gorgui Dieng will continue to start, and needs to be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:44 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
  • Nikola Pekovic out through break?
    Nikola Pekovic (foot, ankle) is not expected to return any time soon.

    Advice: He can't play big minutes anyway and he might just be a reserve right now. Pekovic shouldn't have been added to begin with, but he can be dropped in basically all leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:35 am
  • Kevin Garnett likely out through break?
    Kevin Garnett (knee) is not close to a return.

    Advice: Coach Sam Mitchell said he likes the rotation as is. That means Gorgui Dieng should be locked in to the starting lineup. His scoring is way up, but Dieng's blocks have fallen off. He should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:33 am
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Pek out again on Wednesday night
    Nikola Pekovic (ankle) will not play on Wednesday against the Clippers.

    Advice: The team did change his diagnosis from a sore foot to a right ankle issue. Regardless, don't expect Pekovic back any time soon. Gorgui Dieng should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:13 pm
  • KG out again for Wednesday night
    Kevin Garnett will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Wolves should probably do us all a favor and rule him out to the break. Garnett can be ignored in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:11 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
  • 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
  • C.J. Watson (calf) progressing
    C.J. Watson (calf) is progressing from his injury.

    Advice: He was not able to run for several weeks, so his conditioning is not there right now. Watson could take minutes from Shabazz Napier. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:44 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) goes through shootaround
    Ben McLemore (wrist) went through shootaround on Wednesday and is still questionable.

    Advice: He did plenty of shooting and this report adds he looked good. McLemore could be closer to probable, but he's not a fantasy option tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:47 am
  • Kevin Garnett (leg) doubtful vs. LAC
    Kevin Garnett (right knee) is doubtful to play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is probably not going to play, which puts Gorgui Dieng in the starting lineup. Garnett can be ignored in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:39 am
  • Nikola Pekovic and Garnett are doubtful
    Nikola Pekovic (right foot) and Kevin Garnett (knee) are doubtful to play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: It would be very surprising to see either player go. Gorgui Dieng has become a bigger part of the offense while Nemanja Bjelica gets a handful of minutes. Dieng should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:35 am
  • 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
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) out for Tuesday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers as expected.

    Advice: He was listed as questionable but coach Sam Mitchell never expected him to play. K-Mart is likely going to be traded, but he isn't worth stashing in almost any format at the moment. Zach LaVine will benefit on Tuesday and from here on out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:42 pm
  • Nikola Pekovic (foot) ruled out for Tuesday
    Nikola Pekovic (sore foot) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: With both Kevin Garnett (leg) and Pekovic on the sidelines for Tuesday's game, Gorgui Dieng's spot in the starting five is safe, and he looks like an excellent DFS target tonight with a favorable matchup against the Lakers. Pekovic is a constant injury risk, and belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:32 pm
  • Kevin Garnett (leg) out Tuesday vs. Lakers
    Kevin Garnett (leg) will not play Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Garnett said that it's his right leg, and not specifically his right knee that has been bothering him, but he added that it's been feeling better and he expects to get back on the court "soon." His next opportunity to play will come Wednesday vs. the Clippers, so we'll be considering him questionable for that one. However, Garnett is only playing 14.7 minutes per game this season, so there's no reason to own him in any league. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:29 pm
  • Patty Mills scores season-high 22 points
    Patty Mills scored a season-high 22 points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in just 21 minutes against the Magic on Monday.

    Advice: This comes out of nowhere with only four points on Saturday. Mills hasn't been great these days and managed to make just 34.6 percent from the field in January. He'll need to do it a few more times to be considered as a pickup. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:54 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
  • Nikola Pekovic (sore foot) is doubtful
    Nikola Pekovic (sore foot) is doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: So it begins. Pekovic lasted just six minutes on Sunday vs. the Blazers and was not able to practice on Monday. The big man just can't stay healthy, and there's a good chance he will eventually be shut down. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:50 pm
  • Popovich unafraid to give Kyle Anderson time
    Gregg Popovich is unafraid to give Kyle Anderson regular minutes in the rotation.

    Advice: "We’re giving [Simmons] and Kyle minutes to try and prepare them to become real pros and real contributors in the league," Popovich said. Despite a regular role of 15-20 minutes over his last six games, Slo-Mo is not a fantasy option in any format. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 7:54 am
  • Jonathon Simmons earning minutes from Pop
    Gregg Popovich has no hesitation about throwing Jonathon Simmons into a "trial by fire" situation.

    Advice: "We’re giving [Simmons] and Kyle [Anderson] minutes to try and prepare them to become real pros and real contributors in the league," Popovich said. Despite a consistent role in the rotation over his last six games, Simmons isn't anywhere close to emerging onto the fantasy radar in standard formats. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 7:50 am
  • 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
  • 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
