  • Ben McLemore plays just 18 minutes
    Ben McLemore played 18 minutes against the Mavs on Monday with four points and two rebounds.

    Advice: Seth Curry took a lot of McLemore's minutes and he appears to be back in coach George Karl's doghouse. With DeMarcus Cousins back, there just won't be enough shots to go to B-Mac anyway. Yesterday, 11:57 pm
  • Wes Matthews plays 36 minutes
    Wesley Matthews played 36 minutes against the Kings on Monday with 10 points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's apparently pretty healthy with that high minute total and coach Rick Carlisle even asked him to guard DeMarcus Cousins late in the fourth quarter. The Mavs have a back-to-back set and it's on the road, so Matthews' fantasy owners might want to make sure he's a go. Although, he probably wants to play against his former team in Portland. Yesterday, 11:46 pm
  • Devin Harris scores 11 points in 25 minutes
    Devin Harris played 25 minutes against the Kings on Monday with 11 points, one rebound, two assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He seems to be the main winner from the J.J. Barea (ankle) injury, but isn't really lighting it up. Barea probably won't be out beyond this week, so Harris isn't a strong pickup. Yesterday, 11:41 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 20 points in win
    Klay Thompson scored 20 points as the Warriors improved to 19-0 over the Jazz with a 106-103 win, adding five rebounds, two assists, two blocks, no turnovers and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's starting to get it going in his last five. In that span, Thompson averaged 16.4 points, 2.6 boards, 2.6 dimes, 1.0 blocks and 3.2 treys on 46.9 percent from the field. Thompson won't be putting up first-round value like last season due to less shots going his way, but he's still a buy-low player. Yesterday, 11:32 pm
  • Iggy doesn't take any shots in a win
    Andre Iguodala did not take any shots on Monday against the Jazz, adding two rebounds, two assists and one block in 27 minutes.

    Advice: While he isn't a guy who takes many shots, it's the first time in his career he's failed to take any attempts from the field and from the line. Iguodala's minutes haven't gone up at all since the Harrison Barnes (ankle) injury, so he doesn't appear to be benefiting. Yesterday, 11:23 pm
  • Ian Clark hits four treys on Monday
    Ian Clark was hot in the first quarter against the Jazz on Monday, finishing with 12 points, two rebounds, one block and four 3-pointers in six minutes.

    Advice: Revenge game? Clark was with the Jazz last season and has looked good at times in the past two seasons. He can shoot it, but obviously won't have much value if he's only getting six minutes. Yesterday, 11:19 pm
  • Alec Burks scores 19 points in loss
    Alec Burks made 8-of-15 from the field for 19 points with two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: He started out ice cold and missed his first five shots from the field. Burks logged 11 minutes at the point tonight, which has been a fairly common occurrence these days. He is coming off a 21-point game on Saturday and should be owned in all leagues. Yesterday, 10:56 pm
  • McCollum records first career double-double
    C.J. McCollum recorded his first career double-double with 12 points, 10 assists, four boards, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

    Advice: The 10 assists were a career high, but Monday's game was the first time this season that he failed to score at least 15 points. He shot just 4-of-15 from the field and had four turnovers tonight, but he's going to have to step up in a big way on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks if Damian Lillard (illness) is unable to play. Yesterday, 10:50 pm
  • Jimmy Butler has low scoring game
    Jimmy Butler made 5-of-9 from the field for 14 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers in 40 minutes against the Spurs on Monday.

    Advice: He admitted he's been dealing with a heel issue. "Hopefully it doesn't get worse," Butler said. "Get some treatment and be ready to go Wednesday ... there's nothing I can do about it." It sounds like it could be a plantar fasciitis issue, which might linger for a while. If you're going to trade him because you're worried about it getting worse, you should get top-15 value back. Yesterday, 10:47 pm
  • Austin Rivers scores six points in win
    Austin Rivers scored six points on 2-of-8 shooting with one board, one block and one steal in Monday's win over the Blazers.

    Advice: He played 25 minutes and replaced Chris Paul in the lineup when he left the game with a rib injury. It's not clear if Paul will play in Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers, but Rivers would likely start if Paul can't go. To be clear, Rivers is only worth a speculative pickup in very deep leagues. Yesterday, 10:37 pm
  • Kawhi plays 40 minutes, scores 25
    Kawhi Leonard scored 25 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and two turnovers in 40 minutes against the Bulls on Monday during a 92-89 loss.

    Advice: He's playing 40 minutes a lot more these days and is approaching 35 minutes per game. Leonard has completely been unleashed this year with season highs in every fantasy category in standard leagues except for steals. He's No. 3 in nine-cat formats and has been very good in DFS with that added minutes and usage rate. Yesterday, 10:32 pm
  • Danny Green scores nine points
    Danny Green made 3-of-10 from the field for nine points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Bulls on Monday.

    Advice: He just can't get out of his own way this season, but he is showing some signs of life in his last five. In that span, he averaged 9.4 points, 4.4 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.2 treys. The bad news? He's made just 34.7 percent from the field in that run. He's been a disaster in the paint after being pretty decent from there in his career. His struggles are one of the longest anomalies in the past few seasons. Stick with him. Yesterday, 10:16 pm
  • Kent Bazemore gets 22 minutes
    Kent Bazemore played 22 minutes against the Thunder on Monday with seven points, two rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Even though the minutes are down with him coming off the bench, he's still managed to put up decent stats. It's a little tough to project Bazemore's role because Thabo Sefolosha may be playing bigger minutes because of the matchups against elite small forwards. We'll see how the Hawks handle Thabo against DeMarre Carroll on Wednesday. Bazemore is still a hold right now. Yesterday, 9:52 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha logs 39 minutes
    Thabo Sefolosha played a season-high 39 minutes in the starting lineup against the Thunder on Monday with no points, eight boards, six assists, four steals and one turnover.

    Advice: He was on Kevin Durant duty for much of this game after having to guard Kawhi Leonard on Saturday. "We won this game because of Thabo," Al Horford said. Sefolosha may stick in the starting lineup or get moved to the bench. It shouldn't really matter because his minutes will be similar regardless of role. He is worth owning in standard leagues now that he's had his restriction lifted. Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Reggie Jackson dropping his TOs lately
    Reggie Jackson scored a game-high 31 points against the Rockets on Monday, adding five rebounds, eight assists, two steals, three 3-pointers and two turnovers.

    Advice: While the scoring is nice after an eight-point stinker on Sunday, Jackson dropping his turnovers has been an important part of his performance heating up. In his last four, he's only turned the ball over six times. He'll need to keep the turnovers down to be a nine-cat stud. Yesterday, 9:15 pm
  • Jimmy Butler taking it easy in practice
    Jimmy Butler (foot) has been taking it easy in practice the past couple days.

    Advice: He's dealing with a heel issue and has been limping on occasion. Butler will be playing through it and hopefully the added rest in practice will help. Butler is putting up first-round value and his owners shouldn't be overly concerned. Yesterday, 3:27 pm
  • McCollum focused on proper shot technique
    C.J. McCollum has increased his focus on utilizing a proper shot technique.

    Advice: "Sometimes, my shot is a little flat," McCollum said. "I’m shooting more of a line drive, so I just remind myself that I’ve got to get it up." Over his last three games, McCollum has started to heat up again, making 27-of-50 shots, including 9-of-18 from behind the 3-point line. Yesterday, 9:30 am
  • Thabo Sefolosha will start again on Monday
    Thabo Sefolosha will again start on Monday vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: For the second straight game, Kent Bazemore come off the bench. Sefolosha (24:42) actually saw more time than Bazemore (19:49) in Saturday's blowout loss vs. San Antonio, and the Hawks clearly like what a healthy Sefolosha can provide defensively with the starting five. Yesterday, 8:34 am
  • Jimmy Butler dealing with right foot injury
    Jimmy Butler is playing through an undisclosed right foot injury.

    Advice: "Man I don’t know what it is, but I’m playing through it," Butler said. The tough-as-nails swingman originally injured himself on November 20 vs. the Warriors and added he "wasn't sure" if he'd need an MRI. There is nothing to suggest Butler is going to miss time, but this will remain a concern so long as Butler is playing heavy minute and until he says it's a non-issue. Yesterday, 6:07 am
  • Reggie Jackson shoots 4-of-20 in Pistons loss
    Reggie Jackson finished Sunday's loss to the Nets with eight points on 4-of-20 shooting, six rebounds, nine assists, one steal and three turnovers.

    Advice: Jackson hasn't recaptured the value he held late last season, but he's a steady mid-round PG who should be impervious to the return of Brandon Jennings. His fantasy value would improve considerably if he could cut back on his 3.4 turnovers and make more than 42.4 percent of his shots, his lowest FG percentage since he was a rookie. Sunday, 6:13 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha returned to action on Saturday November 28. Sunday, 12:10 am
  • Ben McLemore scores 10 points in loss
    Ben McLemore scored 10 points with five assists, three boards, three steals, one blocks and two treys in 27 minutes vs. the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: Considering the game was a blowout, McLemore's owners are fortunate that he was able to post this nine-cat gem. McLemore is starting to get consistent minutes in the mid-20s, but he is still only on the radar in very deep leagues. Saturday, 11:27 pm
  • Klay Thompson scores 15 points in win
    Klay Thompson scored 15 points with two assists, one steal and 3-pointers on Saturday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: The game was over in a hurry and Thompson played just 26 minutes, so his owners will be pretty disappointed. He has scored 15 or less points in four out of his last five games, but it's possible that his back may not be 100 percent. The buy-low window is opening again, so float some offers to his owners if you think you get him for a reasonable price. Saturday, 10:48 pm
  • Alec Burks scores 21 points in win vs. NO
    Alec Burks made 9-of-14 from the field for a team-high 21 points during a 101-87 win over the Pelicans on Saturday, adding five rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

    Advice: When he's on, he looks like one of the best sixth men in the NBA. Although, Burks has not been on over his previous three, making just 25 percent from the field in that stretch. This game got him back over 40 percent from the field (41.5) and he should be closer to 45-47 percent going forward. He's worth owning in standard leagues. Burks also played 15 minutes at point guard tonight. Saturday, 9:59 pm
  • C.J. McCollum scores 28 with four treys
    C.J. McCollum predictably went off against the Lakers on Saturday, scoring 28 points with two boards, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: McCollum had his way with the woeful Lakers and hit 12-of-20 of his attempts from the field and was also 4-of-7 from deep. He's having a fantastic year in Portland and has been a top-50 player in standard leagues, and he is well on his way to winning the Most Improved Player Award this season. Saturday, 9:40 pm
  • Wes Matthews scores seven points
    Wes Matthews scored seven points in 28 minutes during a 92-81 win over the Nuggets on Saturday, adding one rebound, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: It hasn't been pretty since Friday the 13th. In those eight games, Matthews made just 31.6 percent from the field for averages of 11.4 points, 2.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.1 treys. He has actually looked OK out there, so he can be viewed as a buy-low player to a degree. You should be giving up next to nothing to get him. Saturday, 9:17 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard scores 22 points on 11 FGAs
    Kawhi Leonard continued his MVP-caliber season during a 108-88 win over the Hawks on Saturday, making 6-of-11 from the field and all seven from the line for 22 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's incredible. Kawhi is now up to 61.3 true shooting percentage (TS%), a 25.9 usage rate on the season and has no holes in his game. Last year, only one player qualified for points and matched that TS% and usage rate (Stephen Curry). With Thanksgiving passing, we are thankful to watch Kawhi Leonard play every time he suits up. He's an absolute superstar and would be a strong MVP candidate if not for Curry this year. Saturday, 8:38 pm
  • Kent Bazemore has decent game off bench
    Kent Bazemore came off the bench on Saturday with 11 points, seven rebounds and one block in 20 minutes against the Spurs.

    Advice: He probably won't be sticking in the second unit for long and this move was probably due to the situation -- Kawhi Leonard is really good on offense and Bazemore just returned from injury. We would still consider Bazemore as a player trending up and worth owning in standard leagues. Saturday, 7:57 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha scores eight points in start
    Thabo Sefolosha scored eight points against the Spurs during a start on Saturday with four rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Presumably, the Hawks put Thabo in the first unit to defend an offensive superstar at small forward. Sefolosha's value won't be too high considering he's not going to get many points, but he could have some sneaky late-round value. Most owners should shoot for a higher upside. Saturday, 7:53 pm
  • Wesley Matthews (illness) will play Saturday
    Wesley Matthews (illness) will play vs. the Nuggets on Saturday.

    Advice: He did miss the morning shootaround, but Matthews said that he has played through worse. Matthews is starting to heat up and is averaging 13.8 points and 2.6 3-pointers over his last five games, so go ahead and make sure he is active. Keep in mind that he is also shooting just 36.5 percent from the field over that span as well. Saturday, 4:28 pm
  • Kent Bazemore coming off the bench
    Kent Bazemore will come off the bench against the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: Apparently, coach Mike Budenholzer has more confidence in Bazemore as a play maker and will move him to the second unit. He's also coming in off an ankle injury, so this might make it easier on him. Bazemore has been outstanding this season, so he should be owned in standard leagues. Although, his owners might want to be careful tonight on the off chance his minutes are cut. Saturday, 4:13 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha will start on Saturday
    Thabo Sefolosha will start on Saturday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Sefolosha was rested on Friday vs. the Grizzlies, but he should see minutes in the 20s tonight and will probably be tasked with guarding Kawhi Leonard. Kent Bazemore will shift to the bench against the Spurs after he returned from his ankle injury on Friday, but it's possible that the Hawks are just being cautious with him since it's the second night of a back-to-back set. Sefolosha is more of a defensive specialist, so he is better suited for deeper leagues. Saturday, 4:10 pm
  • Austin Rivers gets his revenge
    Austin Rivers scored 17 points off the bench against the Pelicans on Friday with one rebound, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Revenge game? THE REVENGE GAME?!! Rivers was basically jettisoned by the Pelicans at the 2015 trade deadline last year, so this was probably the main landmark on Narrative Street of the season. We'll need to see him do it again when he's not going against a team that essentially cut him. Saturday, 1:05 am
  • Klay Thompson knocks down three treys in win
    Klay Thompson knocked down three more 3-pointers during the Dubs 135-116 win over the Suns on Friday, adding 15 points, two boards, one block and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Klay went 6-of-11 from the field in this one, and he would have had a much bigger game if the score weren’t so lopsided. Thompson's numbers are trending up, and he's put in averages of 17.7 points, 2.7 three-pointers, 2.8 assists, 0.7 blocks and just 1.2 turnovers over the past six games, and he should only get better as we get deeper into the season. Through the month of November Klay has performed at a sixth-round level, so the buy-low window remains open for a guy with early-round upside. Friday, 11:49 pm
  • Kent Bazemore scores 14 points
    Kent Bazemore returned from a five-game absence on Friday with 14 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: That's a nice return for Bazemore, who was struggling before his ankle sprain last week. He was absolutely rolling earlier this month, so he should probably be owned in all leagues after this solid effort. Friday, 11:43 pm
  • Reggie Jackson scores 15 points
    Reggie Jackson scored 15 points against the Thunder during a 103-87 loss on Friday, adding five rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: No revenge game here. After the game, Kevin Durant said Andre Drummond is Detroit's best player -- that's true -- but he called Kentavious Caldwell-Pope the second-best player on the team. Shots fired. Jackson has played well and is holding mid-round value. Friday, 10:57 pm
  • Danny Green hits three 3-pointers in win
    Danny Green sank three 3-pointers during Friday's win over the Nuggets, but added just nine points, four boards, one steal and two turnovers through 27 minutes.

    Advice: Green has now hit multiple 3-pointers in his previous three outings, but he hasn't brought much else to the stat sheet during that span with averages of just 11.0 points, 5.3 boards, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks per game. The talent is there, and the minutes have been consistent, so owners are going to just need to stay patient and hope that the defensive stats start coming. For what it's worth, Green has been at least a mid-round asset since the 2012-13 season, so it doesn't seem likely he'll be this bad for the entire year. Friday, 10:03 pm
  • Jimmy Butler fills the stat sheet
    Jimmy Butler filled up the stat sheet against the Pacers on Friday, scoring 16 points with five rebounds, five assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: As soon as the entire Bulls team realizes he's their best player, the better off they'll be. Fantasy owners probably realize he's their best player with Butler posting top-10 value on the year. He's a fantasy superstar. Jimmy's got some new moves ... again. Friday, 9:28 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard falls one steal shy of 5x5 line
    Kawhi Leonard was incredible during the Spurs 91-80 win over the Nuggets on Friday, scoring 25 points on 11-of-18 shooting to go with seven boards, six assists, four steals, five blocks, two 3-pointers and just two turnovers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Simply put, Kawhi is fantasy gold and he is currently ranked No. 3 overall in standard 9-cat leagues. After taking home the Defensive Player of the Year award last season, Kawhi has made it a point to prove that his offensive game is also a force to be reckoned with, and he's quickly establishing himself as one of the best two-way players in the league. What's even scarier about Kawhi's dominance? He's just 24 years old and will only get better. Enjoy. Friday, 9:26 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha out for Friday night
    Thabo Sefolosha (rest) will not play against the Grizzlies on Friday.

    Advice: It's just rest on the front end of a back-to-back set. Sefolosha did have some tightness in his ankle following a back-to-back set last week, so the Hawks will play it safe. Kent Bazemore (ankle) is back and starting while Lamar Patterson should get some run, too. Friday, 3:38 pm
  • Kent Bazemore (ankle) will start on Friday
    Kent Bazemore (ankle) will play and start vs. the Grizzlies on Friday.

    Advice: He missed five straight games for the Hawks, but he was playing really well prior to going down and should be picked up in most leagues to see if he can keep it going. Thabo Sefolosha is expected to return to the bench on Friday, while Justin Holiday and Lamar Patterson should lose some minutes as well. Friday, 10:09 am
  • Kent Bazemore (ankle) questionable for Friday
    Kent Bazemore (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: This is the first time Bazemore has received the questionable tag since sustaining the ankle injury, so it looks like he's nearing a return to the court. Owners can expect another update following Friday morning's shootaround. Thabo Sefolosha’s value will take a hit upon the return of Bazemore. Thursday, 3:12 pm
  • Alec Burks scores eight, gets 12 mins at PG
    Alec Burks scored eight points on 3-of-13 from the field with six rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 29 minutes against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: While this wasn't a good game at all, he played 12 minutes at point guard tonight with Trey Burke (back) not being able to play in the second half. Burks probably won't be getting into the starting lineup any time soon, but he should be able to clear 30 minutes with added responsibility. He is worth owning in standard leagues. Wednesday, 11:32 pm
  • Devin Harris scores 11 points in return
    Devin Harris returned on Wednesday with 11 points, three boards and two turnovers before fouling out in 16 minutes vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: He shot 4-of-5 from the field, including one 3-pointer, and even played as a makeshift SF vs. Kawhi Leonard for stretches since Chandler Parsons (rest) was unavailable. He gets kudos for taking on that challenge, but remains a non-factor in all but the deepest fantasy leagues. Wednesday, 9:23 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard: 10+ pts in 40 straight games
    Kawhi Leonard piled up 26 points, four 3-pointers, eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in 40 minutes vs. Dallas on Wednesday.

    Advice: Speaking of the number 40, that's how many consecutive games Kawhi has scored double-digit points. The Spurs are crushing teams at home, where they've compiled an 8-0 record while holding opponents to 84.9 points. Needless to say, LaMarcus Aldridge's return did not affect Leonard's bottom line. Wednesday, 9:21 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha locks down Wiggins in 32 mins
    Making another start at SF on Wednesday, Thabo Sefolosha contributed 10 points, two 3-pointers, six rebounds and one block in 32 minutes vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: His defense kept Andrew Wiggins in check, as he scored only 15 points on 5-of-17 shooting, and it will be interesting to see how Mike Budenholzer uses Thabo once Kent Bazemore (ankle) returns to action. Tonight's solid game comes on the heels of a terrific game vs. the Celtics, and Sefolosha is worth deploying while logging 30+ minutes as a starter. Wednesday, 8:41 pm
  • Reggie Jackson recovers w/ 18 points, four 3s
    Reggie Jackson bounced back from Monday's dud to finish a win vs. the Heat with 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting, four 3-pointers, four rebounds and seven assists.

    Advice: The win snapped a two-game skid for the Pistons, whose 8-7 record has them fourth in the Central division. Stan Van Gundy admitted on Tuesday that he's "really disappointed and worried about where [the Pistons] are right now," so this has to feel good heading into the holiday. Wednesday, 7:55 pm
  • Devin Harris (rest) back for Wednesday
    Devin Harris is playing on Wednesday.

    Advice: He should have his normal minutes and perhaps even more with Chandler Parsons (rest) out tonight. Wednesday, 5:15 pm
  • Kent Bazemore, Tiago Splitter out again
    Kent Bazemore (ankle) and Tiago Splitter (hip) will not play against the Wolves on Wednesday.

    Advice: It'll likely be Thabo Sefolosha in the starting lineup again. Sefolosha is coming off a wonderful 15-point game and the Hawks will likely be using him on Andrew Wiggins a lot. He's certainly in play for DFS tonight, but don't expect a repeat performance. Lamar Patterson should get some burn, too. Wednesday, 2:37 pm
  • C.J. McCollum scores 18 in loss to Bulls
    C.J. McCollum hit 7-of-17 shots and two 3-pointers for 18 points, two rebounds and four assists in Tuesday's loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: This wasn't one of his greatest games, but he still put up pretty solid numbers. The Blazers get the Lakers on Saturday, so CJM should have a big game as long as he's not on the bench late in a blowout. Tuesday, 10:14 pm
  • Klay Thompson shoots 3-of-12 from the field
    Klay Thompson struggled against the Lakers on Tuesday, finishing with 11 points on 3-of-12 shooting from the field.

    Advice: He also added three boards, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers, but it was a little disappointing to see him take a step back after he recently strung together a few good games. Thompson's buy-low window probably opened up a little more after tonight's dud, so feel free to test the patience of his owners in your league. Tuesday, 10:09 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha scores 15, hits 7-of-8
    Thabo Sefolosha drew another start in the absence of Kent Bazemore (ankle) on Tuesday, hitting 7-of-8 shots for a season-high 15 points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks in an easy win over the Celtics.

    Advice: He's not really an offensive threat on most nights, but has played well on that end of the court in two straight. He'll continue to start and guard the opposition's best player for as long as Bazemore is out, but is only a real option in fantasy on nights when Baze isn't playing. Bazemore has missed four straight games, but should be back by the end of the week. Tuesday, 8:19 pm
  • Devin Harris (rest) will not play on Tuesday
    Devin Harris (rest) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: He isn't dealing with an injury and this is just a scheduled rest day, but he probably wasn't owned in most leagues anyways. Harris is averaging 22.4 minutes per game this season, so expect J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton to see a few more minutes on Tuesday. Tuesday, 4:33 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard dominates vs. Suns, scores 24
    Kawhi Leonard looked like an MVP candidate during a 98-84 win over the Suns on Monday, making 11-of-18 from the field for 24 points with 13 rebounds, four assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He destroyed the Suns in the open floor and his offensive game is catching up to his defensive impact. On the season, Leonard has averages of 21.5 points, 7.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.8 treys on 51.1 percent from the field and 83.3 percent from the line. He's getting to the rim more these days and looks like a good bet to stay in the top five for fantasy value this season. Monday, 11:03 pm
  • Danny Green scores 18 points
    Danny Green scored 18 points during a win over the Suns on Monday, adding six rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Here we go. In his last five, Green averaged 10.6 points, 4.2 boards, 3.0 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.2 steals and 2.2 treys on 40.8 percent from the field. The treys are coming around, but Green just hasn't been getting the defensive stats for some reason. Green still has just 15th-round value on the year, so his owners are still hot little potatoes right now. He should be trending up soon and is not at risk of losing his playing time. Keep him owned in all standard leagues. Monday, 10:58 pm
  • Alec Burks scores eight points in loss
    Alec Burks scored eight points on 2-of-9 shooting in Monday's blowout loss to the Thunder, adding three assists, two boards and one steal in 25 minutes.

    Advice: The Jazz were completely outplayed by the Thunder tonight and the game was basically over by halftime, but Burks had his fair share of struggles as well. His efficiency has trailed off lately because he is shooting just 32.8 percent from the field over his last five games, but he should be able to break out of his slump soon. Burks is still playing the best basketball of his career and was returning mid-round value just a couple of weeks ago, so look for him to bounce back against the Clippers on Wednesday. Monday, 10:16 pm
  • Ben McLemore gets 19 minutes
    Ben McLemore played 19 minutes in the starting lineup on Monday with 10 points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block.

    Advice: Even though he started, he's probably the No. 4 wing option behind Marco Belinelli, Omri Casspi and Darren Collison. McLemore had a nice little run last week, but he is only worth owning in 20-team leagues right now. Monday, 8:35 pm
  • Kent Bazemore (ankle) will not play Tuesday
    Kent Bazemore (ankle) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: This will be his fourth straight game on the sidelines, and it should be noted that he didn't practice on Monday. Bazemore's ankle is progressing and he said on Saturday that he is taking it "day by day", so hopefully we will see him back on the court later in the week. Thabo Sefolosha will benefit the most with Bazemore out, but Lamar Patterson and Justin Holiday will likely stay in the rotation as well. Monday, 6:14 pm
  • Kent Bazemore doesn't practice on Monday
    Kent Bazemore (right ankle sprain) did not practice on Monday.

    Advice: Coach Mike Budenholzer said that he would know more on Bazemore Tuesday's status closer to gametime vs. Boston, so that is at least a positive indication that Bazemore is progressing. If he can't give it a go, Thabo Sefolosha, Lamar Patterson and Justin Holiday will help to fill the void. Monday, 10:38 am
  • C.J. McCollum posts well-rounded line Sunday
    C.J. McCollum made 8-of-13 shots with three 3-pointers vs. the Lakers, finishing with 19 points, four boards, five assists, two steals and two blocks.

    Advice: There's nothing like a game vs. the Lakers to snap a shooting slump -- McCollum came in shooting only 25-of-65 from the field in his previous four games. The lack of efficiency has taken a toll but he's still doing enough for steady mid-round value with upside, anchored by 20.1 points and 1.9 triples per game, and tonight's defensive stats are a welcome surprise. Nov 22, 9:16 pm
  • Klay Thompson, GSWs torch Nuggets from deep
    Klay Thompson knocked down four 3-pointers on Sunday, en route to 21 points, three rebounds, seven assists and one block in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Mike Malone said prior to the game that the Nuggets' "inability to guard the 3-point line is a joke," and Golden State exploited the weakness by shooting 51.7 percent beyond the arc. Thompson's back is healthy and he's starting to heat up, a welcome turn of events after a sluggish start to the season. Nov 22, 7:48 pm
  • Andre Iguodala terrific in road win at Denver
    Andre Iguodala had another terrific game vs. the Nuggets, posting 12 points on 5-of-6 shooting, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, four assists, four steals and one block in just 27 minutes.

    Advice: Iguodala said in September that he understands how to play off the bench "a trillion times" better than he did last season, and it shows. He also said that he's "not a fan" of the Sixth Man of the Year award, but might win it despite his reservations. He's returning top-75 value this year and shows no signs of slowing down. Nov 22, 7:47 pm
  • Wes Matthews hits four 3-pointers vs. OKC
    Wesley Matthews drained four 3-pointers to finish Sunday's road loss with 18 points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal, and he walked off a hard fall in the fourth quarter.

    Advice: Matthews took a horrible shot just before the final buzzer but most of the night he had it going, a rarity since he came in shooting 33.0 percent on the season. Inconsistency is to be expected as he returns from Achilles surgery, and his owners should note that Dallas plays back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Nov 22, 6:47 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard scores 19 points
    Kawhi Leonard scored 19 points during a 92-82 win over the Grizzlies on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: It's just the fifth non-overtime game of his career in which he's played 40 minutes. Kawhi is posting a career-high 26.0 usage rate and a career-high 34.3 minutes this season. Amazingly, he has all those shots and he just has 1.1 turnovers per game. In fact, Kawhi is on pace to be the first player in NBA history to play at least 34 minutes per game, have a usage rate of at least 26 and have fewer than 1.3 turnovers. Leonard is probably going to be a top-five player in fantasy for the next five years. Nov 21, 9:34 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha scores 13 points in start
    Thabo Sefolosha scored 13 points in a start against the Cavs on Saturday with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

    Advice: The Hawks put him out there on LeBron James and he did a fine job. Sefolosha's added playing time probably won't last for long with Kent Bazemore (ankle) likely back in the next couple games. If he's out there on the wire, he should probably stay there. Nov 21, 7:07 pm
  • Kent Bazemore is taking it day by day
    Kent Bazemore (ankle) said in an interview during the Hawks broadcast that he is "taking it day by day" to get over his ankle injury.

    Advice: Bazemore was getting in some work prior to Saturday's game vs. the Cavs and looked good, so his return may not be that far off. The Hawks don't play again until Tuesday vs. the Celtics, so he should be considered questionable for that contest. Justin Holiday, Lamar Patterson and Thabo Sefolosha will stay relevant until Bazemore returns. Nov 21, 5:30 pm
  • Ben McLemore cools off in a hurry
    Ben McLemore struggled against the Magic on Saturday with eight points, three rebounds, two assists and four turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: It was not his best game after he was coming off what may have been his best four-game stretch of his career. McLemore would be looking at some added opportunity while Rudy Gay (shoulder) is out, but Omri Casspi and Marco Belinelli both look like better short-term adds. Nov 21, 5:20 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha to start vs. LeBron
    Thabo Sefolosha will start against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Advice: This one has to be due to LeBron James, so the Hawks will get Sefolosha on him as much as they can. He's still not too involved in the offense, but should get enough minutes to be a viable fantasy option. Nov 21, 3:09 pm
  • Jimmy Butler puts up another big line
    Jimmy Butler scored 28 points with nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: He came up lame at the end of the game, but said he wasn't hurt. "I just wanted to take my shoe off," Butler said. "That's the way I walk when we lose." Nice. Anyway, Butler will continue to dominate on the box score and is now putting up first round value on the year. His fantasy owners will be hoping Derrick Rose (ankle) takes his time before a return. Nov 21, 1:40 am
  • Austin Rivers plays 22 minutes
    Austin Rivers played 22 minutes on Friday with 10 points, one rebound, one assist and one steal against the Blazers.

    Advice: Now that J.J. Redick and Chris Paul are back, Rivers becomes a much less appealing fantasy play. Plus, when Paul Pierce returns, Rivers will probably only see minutes in the teens. Nov 21, 12:33 am
  • Wesley Matthews hits 3-of-12 shots in win
    Wesley Matthews couldn't get anything to drop during Friday's win over the Jazz, scoring just seven points on 3-of-12 shooting to go with one assist, one rebound and one block over 32 minutes.

    Advice: Matthews is currently in one of the worst shooting slumps of his career, connecting on just 32.3 percent of his shot attempts through the month of November. It is encouraging to see the veteran earning playing time in the 30s coming off an Achilles injury, but the fact that he's currently only knocking down a mere 25 percent of his wide open looks is a bit concerning. Achilles injuries can be career altering. Nov 20, 11:48 pm
  • Alec Burks scores 15 points with five boards
    Alec Burks put up 15 points on 4-of-14 shooting to go with five boards, one 3-pointer, one block and one turnover during Friday's loss to the Mavericks.

    Advice: Burks also shot a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe, making this your prototypical Burks-line. He's currently hitting career-highs in points (15.9), three-pointers (1.2) and steals (1.0) to go with a career-high usage rate of 25.6. His minutes have been trending up during the month of November, and he looks ready for a full bounce-back year after spending a majority of the 2014-15 season on the sidelines. Nov 20, 11:29 pm
  • Danny Green scores six with eight boards
    Danny Green matched a season-high eight rebounds against the Pelicans on Friday with six points, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's finally starting to come around here. In his last five Green has made 45.5 percent from deep with averages of 8.0 points, 4.2 boards, 0.6 blocks and 2.0 treys. He's still been garbage on two-point shots and has no steals, so he's not "back" yet. His minutes are still there and he's still a buy-low player. Nov 20, 9:37 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard scores 22 in 37 minutes
    Kawhi Leonard scored 22 points in 37 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: That's his second game in a row with 37 minutes. Leonard is No. 3 in per-game fantasy value on the season for standard leagues and is even trending up. His upside is limitless. Nov 20, 9:30 pm
  • Reggie Jackson doesn't turn ball over
    Reggie Jackson did not turn the ball over against the Wolves on Friday with 18 points, five rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: It's the first time he's turned the ball over less than two times. Jackson also shot the ball well and made over 47 percent from the field for the first time since Nov. 8. He has a huge upside, so keeping his turnovers down and shooting the ball better will be key for him to be a stud. Nov 20, 9:21 pm
