    • Lin posts 14-5-6 line in win over Bucks
      Jeremy Lin scored 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes off the bench in the Lakers' 101-93 win over the Bucks on Friday.

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

    • Carter-Williams logs 27 uneventful minutes
      Michael Carter-Williams logged 27 minutes in his second game with the Bucks, scoring eight points on 3-of-6 shooting (no threes) with one rebound, four assists, one steal and four turnovers in Friday's loss.

      Advice: This isn't a great result but the Bucks increased his minutes by a total of nine and they appear committed to throwing him in the fire. If he's not producing at a mid-to-late round level in 8-cat leagues in a few games we'd be surprised. Rotoworld.com

    • Bayless scores 12 points vs. Lakers
      Jerryd Bayless scored 12 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 5-of-14 shots (including a three) with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes.

      Advice: The minutes are what's interesting here and that's before you get to Jerryd Bayless' ailing knee. He didn't produce a lot tonight and O.J. Mayo was out, but there's enough going for Bayless for owners to give him a look. Rotoworld.com

    • Parker gets back on track against the Kings
      Tony Parker scored 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting (1-of-2 from deep, 4-of-4 from the line) with five rebounds and four assists in Friday's win.

      Advice: Parker and Manu Ginobili (16 points, two threes, two boards, one block) played a little bit better than they have been, beating a Kings squad that didn't have DeMarcus Cousins but struggling to do so. Parker is worth a look if he has been dropped, but there's no guarantee he pays off big for owners in standard formats. Rotoworld.com

    • Burke scores 19 points with solid line
      Trey Burke scored 19 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 8-of-12 shots (including three treys) with two rebounds, four assists, four steals and a block in 23 minutes.

      Advice: Burke was a recommended pickup and Wednesday and he's a must-own player after this outburst. He'll probably hover around late-round value when it's all said and done. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 12:52 am
    • Dragic goes for 20 and five in loss
      Goran Dragic scored 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting with three rebounds, five assists and one steal in the Heat's loss to the Pelicans on Friday.

      Advice: Dragic has been a top-70 player so far in Miami and that's likely to rise as he gets comfortable and his role increases. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 12:33 am
    • Chalmers scores six points off the bench
      Mario Chalmers scored six points on 2-of-5 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound in 25 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: Chalmers took a fatal blow to his fantasy value with the arrival of Goran Dragic and owners in 12-14 team formats can move along. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 12:27 am
    • Beverley returns from his illness on Friday
      Patrick Beverley (illness) returned to action in Friday's win over the Nets, scoring nine points on 3-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, three assists and three steals in 34 minutes.

      Advice: This is better than we thought he'd do after multiple weeks looking banged up and/or sick. We're not sure he's over his current flu right now so owners should approach him with caution, but he's probably worth a pickup if he has been dropped after a really cold stretch. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 12:19 am
    • Williams scores 15 points with three assists
      Deron Williams started again at point guard on Friday as expected, scoring 15 points on 6-of-15 shooting (no threes) with five rebounds, three assists and three steals in 34 minutes.

      Advice: Williams outplayed Jarrett Jack (four points, 2-of-9 FGs, five assists, one steal, one block, 23 minutes) and that hasn't been the case for most of the season. The Nets want things to work out with Williams so they'll give him every chance to stay on track, but he'll have his work cut out for him staying ahead. Either way, he should be owned in all formats now that he avoided falling off the cliff, at least for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Damian Lillard scores 29 in huge win vs. OKC
      Damian Lillard scored 29 points during a 115-112 win over the Thunder on Friday with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

      Advice: He put up a bit of an under-the-radar month. In his nine February games, Lillard averaged 20.7 points, 4.4 boards, 5.3 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.7 treys on 47.1 percent from the field and 83.7 percent from the line. He actually struggled with his jumper this month, but shooting a sterling 83.7 percent at the rim carried him. The All-Star still has room for improvement. Rotoworld.com

    • Jack cools off, Williams plays a bit better
      Jarrett Jack hit just 2-of-9 shots for four points, one rebound, five assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: Deron Williams started and wasn't great, hitting just 6-of-15 shots for 15 points and three assists, though he did have five boards and three steals in his 34 minutes. The Nets are going to give Williams every chance to get himself right, but Jack has been the better player for most of the season. Hang onto Jack while this gets sorted out. Rotoworld.com

    • D.J. Augustin to get more playing time?
      D.J. Augustin played 20 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Blazers during a 115-112 loss with six points, one rebound, four assists and two steals.

      Advice: There is nothing encouraging coming out regarding Russell Westbrook now and it sounds like he's going to need to miss time with his facial injury. As of Friday night, he is going to be evaluated, but the team might not provide an update until Saturday. If you need a point guard and are OK with cutting someone, it makes sense to add Augustin.

    • Brooks hits 2-of-15 shots on rough night
      Aaron Brooks hit just 2-of-15 shots (2-of-8 from deep) for six points, four rebounds, four assists and one steal over 31 minutes on Friday against the Wolves.

      Advice: If any impatient owner drops him after a less-than-spectacular start be ready to pick him up. Yes, the Bulls could bring in another point guard but it's doubtful they'll crack the rotation or impact Brooks' minutes. The diminutive guard has a late-round floor with some mid-round upside probably for the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Paul scores 19 with 13 dimes
      Chris Paul scored 19 points against the Grizzlies on Friday with four rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, one turnover and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: The Grizzlies gave out flip-flops tonight and it wasn't a coincidence because their team/fans haven't been bashful about saying the Clippers flop a lot. As for Paul, his numbers in his last nine are amazing, averaging 20.0 points, 4.8 boards, 12.1 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 treys on 49.3 percent from the field. The Clippers are playing very well without Blake Griffin (elbow). Rotoworld.com

    • Mike Conley still struggling for Memphis
      Mike Conley's struggles continued during a 97-79 loss to the Clippers on Friday with four points, three rebounds, two assists and two turnovers.

      Advice: He might still be dealing with a wrist issue because he's just not right these days. In his last six, Conley averaged just 9.8 points, 2.7 boards, 4.7 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.5 treys. If your trade deadline hasn't passed yet, he's a great buy-low target. Rotoworld.com

    • Isaiah Thomas at it again with 28 & 7 in win
      Isaiah Thomas scored 28 points on 9-of-22 shooting (2-of-8 3PTs, 8-of-10 FTs) with one rebound, seven assists and one steal in the Celtics' 106-98 win over the Hornets on Friday.

      Advice: Thomas has been a top-25 player in four games for the Celtics (top-60 in 9-cat), averaging 22.3 points in 27.7 mpg with 2.5 treys, 3.3 boards, 6.0 assists, 1.0 steals and a devastating 88.6 percent from the line on 8.8 attempts per game. He's hitting just 39.3 percent of his shots during that small sample and his playing time should continue to rise. Meanwhile the Celtics look like a transformed team and a fun potential No. 8 seed if they can keep it up. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:51 pm
    • Bradley scores 19 points with three treys
      Avery Bradley scored 19 points on 8-of-18 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds, two assists and one steal in Friday's win over the Hornets.

      Advice: Bradley looks great next to his pal Isaiah Thomas as he doesn't need the ball in his hands much and he's getting great looks in the flow of the offense. Yes, his recent spurt has come against a bunch of bad teams, but the Thomas bump looks real and he should be in all lineups right now. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:42 pm
    • Russell Westbrook (face) to be re-evaluated
      Russell Westbrook suffered an injury to his face on Friday against the Blazers, posting a triple-double for the third consecutive game with 40 points, 13 rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and six turnovers on 14-of-32 from the field and 12-of-14 from the line.

      Advice: Believe it or not, it looked like Westbrook had a penny-sized dent on the side of his face. He did not speak to the media and it's also possible he is dealing with concussion-like symptoms due to Andre Roberson kneeing him in the head. If Westy needs to miss time, it would be a massive loss for the NBA and especially the Thunder. D.J. Augustin would start and become a must-own player while Dion Waiters would also have to score more. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:41 pm
    • Turner posts a dud in win over Hornets
      Evan Turner managed just two points on 1-of-5 shooting with six rebounds and seven assists in 30 minutes on Friday.

      Advice: Turner didn't have a three, steal or block per usual, and he's the guy whose minutes are likely to take a hit with others excelling. Outside of strict points leagues he hasn't been worth much, and owners can find something better on the wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:33 pm
    • Kyle Lowry scores four, gets hurt
      Kyle Lowry left the game in the first quarter and did return, finishing with four points, two rebounds and no assists in 19 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

      Advice: The injury doesn't sound serious and the Raptors were just a disaster tonight. In fact, they made just 1-of-19 from the field in the first quarter. Lowry should be fine for Saturday against the Knicks. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:19 pm
    • Mo Williams scores 31 points with six threes
      Mo Williams hit 9-of-23 shots (including six threes) for 31 points, seven rebounds, four assists and one steal over 37 minutes on Friday against the Celtics.

      Advice: Williams has been a bountiful add not once but twice this season. Even when Kemba Walker in mid-March there should be enough food at the table for him to eat in Charlotte. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:49 pm
    • Shane Larkin plays 36 minutes
      Shane Larkin played 36 minutes against the Pistons on Friday with 16 points, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He started overtime for the Knicks and looks like the biggest beneficiary of the Jose Calderon (Achilles) injury. Larkin has rarely put up multiple good games in a row and has yet to score in double figures in consecutive games all season. We'd like to see it again before adding him in 14-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:46 pm
    • Reggie Jackson has an abysmal game
      Reggie Jackson made 5-of-24 from the field against the Knicks on Friday for 16 points with five rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointers.

      Advice: This kind of line against the Knicks is inexcusable. Jackson hasn't quite hit his stride with his new team and is making just 33.3 percent from the field in his last three. Jackson is still a huge part of the offense and he's a good bet for several 20-7-7 kind of lines this season. Rotoworld.com

    • George Hill logs 1st triple-double of career
      George Hill logged the first triple-double of his career on Friday during a 93-86 win over the Cavs with 15 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists, one block, two steals and two turnovers.

      Advice: Since Monday, there has been a triple-double every night this week. Hill has really stepped up with 7.0 assists per game in his last five, adding averages of 12.8 points, 4.2 boards, 1.4 assists and 1.4 treys. He's not shooting the ball well, but he is a must-start player right now. Plus, it's great to see his groin injury is behind him. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:06 pm
    • Russell Westbrook is good to go vs. Blazers
      Russell Westbrook (ankle) is ready to go against the Blazers on Friday.

      Advice: Even though the Thunder lost, Westbrook was ridiculous on Thursday. He actually put up a 63.4 usage rate in the fourth quarter. Amazingly, the Thunder are 8-0 on the second night of a back-to-back with a healthy Westy. Enjoy watching the game tonight, everyone. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 6:10 pm
    • Pat Beverley is a go, likely on a minutes cap
      Patrick Beverley (illness) will play against the Nets on Friday.

      Advice: He will have a minutes limit tonight. Beverley probably won't be shooting the ball more than six times or so because he's in a slump. He's more of a stash in standard leagues until he gets it going. Jason Terry can be dropped in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 4:08 pm
    • Patrick Beverley expected to play on Friday
      Patrick Beverley (illness) is expected to play against the Nets on Friday.

      Advice: He hasn't been playing well these days, making 19.2 percent from the field in his last three. Beverley probably won't have a lot of shots going his way tonight and is not a great play in fantasy right now. Jason Terry also loses his luster. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:24 pm
    • Lin to start over Clarkson at some point?
      Coach Bryon Scott said he is thinking of starting Jeremy Lin at some point.

      Advice: The change is not going to happen tonight with the Lakers sticking with the same starting five. Lin may start over Jordan Clarkson or the team could go with a two-PG lineup, as well. Clarkson has played next to Lin for 23.3 percent of his minutes this season, so this isn't too bold and there won't be many fantasy implications here outside of Wayne Ellington being less appealing. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:37 am
    • Patrick Beverley (illness) still questionable
      Patrick Beverley (illness) went through the Rockets' shootaround, but he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Brooklyn.

      Advice: We'll be monitoring Beverley's status closely, but if he's forced to sit on Friday, Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni would pick up most of his minutes. Terry has picked up a majority of Beverley's playing time over the past two games, but with averages of 8.5 points, 2.0 assists, 2.5 steals, and 2.5 three-pointers during that span, his value is limited to deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 8:58 am
    • Shane Larkin (illness) will play on Friday
      Shane Larkin (illness) is a go for Friday's game vs. the Pistons.

      Advice: With Jose Calderon (Achilles) on the shelf, Larkin will have an opportunity to slide into the starting lineup tonight. However, with season averages of just 5.6 points, 3.1 assists, and 1.3 steal on 39.2 percent shooting as a starter, he's not a great option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 7:14 am
    • Almost Bestbrook: Russell trip-dubs in loss
      Russell Westbrook notched his second straight triple-double in Thursday's 117-113 overtime loss to the Suns, finishing with 39 points, 14 boards, 11 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes, though he did suffer a minor ankle tweak in the closing moments of the game.

      Advice: That's good for a 48.3 usage rate. He was seen walking around the locker room with no visible limp after the game, so it doesn't look like he is in any danger of missing any action. Westbrook was able to find a tremendous amount of defensive rebounds and he carried the OKC offense tonight, especially in transition. He and teammate Serge Ibaka were No. 1 and 2 in fantasy value since the break. In addition to that, Westbrook is on pace with Oscar Robertson to become the second player in NBA history to average 30 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds in a month. If you're under 40 years old, you've never seen this before. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 11:23 pm
    • D.J. Augustin scores 13 points in 27 minutes
      D.J. Augustin scored 13 points in 27 minutes off the bench on Thursday vs. the Suns, adding five boards, three assists and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: In four games with the Thunder Augustin has averaged 9.0 points, 3.5 assists, 3.3 boards and 1.5 3-pointers in 26.3 minutes per game. While he is no longer worth owning in standard leagues since his move from Detroit, he is doing enough to remain viable in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 11:13 pm
    • Shane Larkin (illness) hopeful to play Friday
      Head coach Derek Fisher is hopeful that Shane Larkin (illness) will be able to play on Friday against the Pistons.

      Advice: Jose Calderon is doubtful for Friday with an Achilles issue, and after he was spotted wearing a walking boot at practice on Thursday, there's almost no chance that he plays against the Pistons. Larkin has missed the last three games due to strep throat, but he was able to get some conditioning work in recently. Even if Larkin returns and plays big minutes Friday, his value is still limited to deeper leagues for now. Langston Galloway stands to benefit the most from Calderon's absence and should be owned in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 4:22 pm
    • C.J. Watson (ankle) hopeful for Friday
      Pacers' head coach Frank Vogel said he was hopeful that C.J. Watson (ankle) will be able to suit up for Friday's game vs. the Cavs.

      Advice: With averages of 9.9 points and 3.8 assists on the season, Watson can't be viewed as a viable option in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 12:15 pm
    • Patrick Beverley (illness) practices Thursday
      Patrick Beverley (illness) went through a light practice on Thursday, but he remains questionable for Friday's game against the Nets.

      Advice: The Rockets kept things light on Thursday, mainly going through shooting drills, so Beverley wasn't really tested and his status is still up in the air for Friday's game. If Beverley is again forced to sit on Friday, Jason Terry would get another game with the starting unit, although he remains an unattractive option in most leagues despite the starter-tag. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 11:35 am
    • Patrick Beverley questionable for Friday
      Patrick Beverley (illness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Nets.

      Advice: Beverley has missed two consecutive games with flu-like symptoms and needed an IV on Monday. He should have had enough time to recover by Friday night, but Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni would fill in with limited fantasy value if Beverley sits again on Friday. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 10:09 am
    • Kyle Lowry says his current game is trash
      Kyle Lowry said that he thinks his current game is trash and that he's working to figure it out.

      Advice: When asked where he sees his game right now, Lowry said, "I'm trash. I'm trying to figure it out right now, to be honest with you." While his terminology might be a tad strong, Lowry is only averaging 12.8 points, 2.6 rebounds, 6.4 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.6 three-pointers over his last five games (all below his season averages), so fantasy owners may want to attempt to buy low before he figures things out. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 9:32 am
    • Tony Parker gets even worse Wednesday
      After being called out by his coach, Tony Parker hit rock bottom in Wednesday's loss to the Blazers, hitting 1-of-8 shots for two points, two rebounds, four assists, a steal and four turnovers.

      Advice: "If he’s not the Tony Parker of past years, we’re not going anywhere," Gregg Popovich said on Tuesday. Parker will eventually get it turned around, but he's been brutal recently, scoring a grand total of nine points in his last three games, while the Spurs have now dropped four straight. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 12:00 am
    • Chris Paul drops a big line in a loss
      Chris Paul handed out 14 assists against the Rockets during a 110-105 loss on Wednesday, adding 22 points, three rebounds and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: He's up to 9.9 assists per game and is getting very close to catching John Wall's league-leading 10.1. Paul has put up some fantasy MVP-type numbers in his last eight, averaging 20.1 points, 4.9 boards, 12.0 boards, 1.5 assists and 1.3 treys on 49.2 percent from the field and 93.5 percent from the field. He and DeAndre Jordan are carrying the Clippers right now with a little Jamal Crawford, as well. Rotoworld.com

    • Trey Burke cools off, but starts second half
      Trey Burke played 29 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, but hit just 2-of-8 shots for seven points, five rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: Burke came in hot, scoring 23, 19 and 16 points in his previous three games, but the good news doesn't stop there. He finally started over Dante Exum in the second half, which could mean Burke might be ready to finally retake his job from the rookie. If he's available in your league, pick him up. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:05 pm
    • Jarrett Jack back in action for Nets
      Jarrett Jack returned from a hamstring injury on Wednesday and had 15 points, three rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer on 5-of-12 shooting in 28 minutes.

      Advice: Jack may or may not replace Deron Williams as the starting point guard, or could end up replacing Markel Brown at shooting guard. Either way, he's proven his worth to the Nets and they're going to need him to play minutes if they're going to stay in the No. 8 hole in the East. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:51 pm
    • Mo Williams gets hot in the second half
      Mo Williams scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half against the Bulls during a 98-86 win on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: His numbers look great in Charlotte, averaging 23.0 points, 7.5 dimes, 2.0 steals and 4.0 treys in his two previous starts. Williams is shaping up to be a must-start player in standard leagues until Kemba Walker (knee) returns next month. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:42 pm
    • Deron Williams quiet in Jarrett Jack's return
      Deron Williams started again on Wednesday and had 10 points and six assists in 34 minutes on 4-of-14 shooting.

      Advice: Jarrett Jack was back from his hamstring injury, but came off the bench and had 15 points in 28 minutes. It remains to be seen if Jack starts over Williams in the next one, but it would make more sense (at least to us) to leave Williams alone and start Jack at shooting guard. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:39 pm
    • Aaron Brooks plays 28 minutes on Wed
      Aaron Brooks played 28 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday during a start, scoring 12 points with four rebounds, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He made 4-of-12 from the field, was 3-of-8 from the line, and didn't turn the ball over. If Brooks is indeed going to play 28 minutes per game, he should absolutely be worth owning in standard leagues based on his per-minute production, averaging 10.6 points, 2.7 dimes, 0.6 steals and 1.5 treys in just 19.9 minutes per game this season. If you need a point guard, he is a very attractive option. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:29 pm
    • Jerryd Bayless plays 30 minutes
      Jerryd Bayless played 30 minutes during a 104-88 win over the 76ers on Wednesday with 13 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: With O.J. Mayo (rest) out and Michael Carter-Williams only playing 18 minutes, there was a lot of playing time up for grabs for Bayless tonight. However, he will likely start seeing his minutes fall to the mid-20s in short order. In his last five, he averaged 9.4 points, 4.2 boards, 3.8 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.6 treys. His numbers will likely be in that neighborhood going forward. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:00 pm
    • Michael-Carter Williams plays 18 minutes
      Michael Carter-Williams played 18 minutes in his Milwaukee debut against the 76ers on Wednesday with seven points, eight assists, two steals and one turnover.

      Advice: He only had a 16.5 usage rate tonight, which is his second lowest of the season. On the bright side, tonight was just his third game of the season with a field goal percentage of at least 60 (3-of-5 from the field tonight). Carter-Williams is likely going to see his numbers come down, but he'll be better than this. It's also worth mentioning coach Jason Kidd said he's going to encourage MCW to take midrange shots, which seems like an awful idea based on how he's only made 24.7 percent on his mid-range this season. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:41 pm
    • Evan Turner triple-doubles in win
      Evan Turner hit 5-of-9 shots for 10 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in 34 minutes in another start on Wednesday.

      Advice: Turner is never going to blow you away with his ability to shoot or score, and is hitting just 34 percent of his shots over his last five games, to go along with 10.2 points. But when you consider he's also averaging 7.6 rebounds, 8.6 assists and 1.4 steals over that stretch, owners have learned to live with the parts of his game that stink. Rotoworld.com

    • Mario Chalmers struggles in 33 minutes
      Mario Chalmers got 33 minutes off the Heat bench on Wednesday, but hit just 2-of-10 shots and 1-of-8 3-pointers for eight points and one assist.

      Advice: Yuck. The minutes were nice, but it's going to be very tough for him to do much as long as Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic are healthy. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:33 pm
    • Michael Carter-Williams to start vs. 76ers
      Michael Carter-Williams will start against the 76ers on Wednesday.

      Advice: In his first game not in a 76ers uniform, he'll get to play against them. Carter-Williams has been dreadful on his jump shots this season, making just 14.7 percent of them. It should be interesting to see how the Bucks use him on offense and his fantasy owners will hope he shoots less. MCW should see a decrease in usage rate, so his ceiling isn't likely going to increase on a given night. He is safe to start for now and his owners can hope for a revenge game tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:21 pm
    • Patrick Beverley (illness) out again vs. LAC
      Patrick Beverley (illness) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

      Advice: That's not good against Chris Paul. Beverley needed an IV on Monday, but he should be ready for the weekend. The Rockets will likely start Jason Terry, who scored nine points in 28 minutes on Monday. Pablo Prigioni will also play close to 20 minutes. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:18 pm
    • Aaron Brooks starting at PG vs. Charlotte
      Aaron Brooks will start at PG against the Hornets on Wednesday.

      Advice: Derrick Rose (knee) is out indefinitely, leaving Brooks with a clear path to sustained fantasy value down the stretch. Kirk Hinrich has been banged up and ineffective for months, and Tom Thibodeau isn't shy about giving his starters heavy minutes. Brooks still has explosive offensive potential and he should be owned in all leagues while we see how the Bulls' rotation shakes out in Rose's absence. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:18 pm
    • Isaiah Thomas to continue coming off bench
      Celtics coach Brad Stevens said that he isn't considering Isaiah Thomas as a starter, and he's happy with the backcourt combination of Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley.

      Advice: Thomas has averaged 21.0 points, 3.0 triples, 3.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.5 steals in two games with Boston, despite playing only 26 minutes off the bench. He's a must-start fantasy player whether he's starting or leading the second unit, and his presence is a drag on Smart's fantasy outlook. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:02 pm
    • Patrick Beverley (illness) skips shootaround
      Patrick Beverley (illness) was not at shootaround and remains questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

      Advice: He wasn't able to play against the Wolves on Monday due to flu-like symptoms, but it's hard to imagine him not doing everything he can to play against Chris Paul and the Clippers. Beverley will likely be a game-time decision tonight, so his owners will have no choice but to check back later before setting their lineups. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will fill the void for the Rockets if Beverley sits, but James Harden will have even more responsibility on offense if that is the case. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:43 am
    • Shane Larkin (illness) will not play on Wed.
      Shane Larkin (illness) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Celtics.

      Advice: This will be his third straight game on the sidelines, but head coach Derek Fisher said that Larkin could return later in the week. However, Larkin isn;t exactly a big part of the rotation in New York, and with averages of just 5.4 points, 2.5 assists, 2.0 boards and 1.3 steals per game, it's safe to leave him on the wire. Expect Jose Calderon and Langston Galloway to continue logging big minutes in the backcourt on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:15 am
    • D.J. Augustin struggles in 25 minutes Tuesday
      D.J. Augustin struggled in 25 minutes on Tuesday, as he came off the bench to score three points on 1-of-6 shooting with two rebounds, seven assists and one steal.

      Advice: Anyone holding onto Augustin should scour the waiver wire for a better option. His value tanked overnight with the trade to OKC and he's only worth keeping if you're targeting 3-pointers and assists in a deep league. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:16 pm
    • OKC wins as Russell Westbrook triple-doubles
      The Thunder cruised past the Pacers on Tuesday behind Russell Westbrook's third double-double of the season, as he racked up 20 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in a mere 28 minutes of action.

      Advice: Westbrook has been outrageously good whenever Kevin Durant has been out of commission this year. With Durant on the bench, Westbrook's usage rate soars and he's posting a True Shooting percentage of 57.0 percent, compared to 50.2 percent with Durant on the court. The only bad news is that WB also picked up his league-leading 12th technical foul during tonight's game, putting him four away from a one-game suspension. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:14 pm
    • Reggie Jackson racks up 22 pts, 8 reb, 9 ast
      Reggie Jackson filled up the boxscore during Tuesday's home loss, scoring a team-high 22 points with one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, nine assists and one block.

      Advice: R-Jax took a whopping 15 drives to the basket during his Pistons debut, according to NBA.com, and he finished 5-of-8 within 12 feet of the hoop tonight. He's being unleashed by coach Stan Van Gundy, a thrilling development for patient owners who watched him languish on OKC's bench prior to the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:32 pm
    • Popovich eager for Tony Parker to improve
      Head coach Gregg Popovich said that Tony Parker needs to break out of his funk if the Spurs have any hope to pursue another NBA title.

      Advice: "If he’s not the Tony Parker of past years," Popovich said, "we’re not going anywhere." Parker is averaging just 14.1 points per game this season, his fewest since his rookie year, but he denied that his previous hamstring issue was still causing him problems. Parker has scored a combined seven points over the last two games, and if he doesn't figure things out soon the Spurs could be in serious trouble. He's simply too talented to drop in most leagues, and his owners can only hope that he turns things around with fantasy playoffs right around the corner. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 5:41 pm
    • Jarrett Jack will play limited minutes Wed.
      Nets' head coach Lionel Hollins said that Jarrett Jack (hamstring) will play limited minutes off the bench for Wednesday's game vs. New Orleans.

      Advice: It's unclear at this point whether Hollins is easing Jack back into the rotation, or if Deron Williams has secured his spot in the starting lineup, and this is a situation we will continue to monitor closely. While Jack is set to return to action on Wednesday, owners should consider benching him as it's unlikely he'll be able to offer much statistically playing limited minutes in a bench role. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 3:31 pm
    • Jarrett Jack (hamstring) probable Wednesday
      Jarrett Jack (hamstring) took part in Tuesday's practice, and he is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

      Advice: There's no word on whether or not he'll retake his place in the starting lineup upon his return, but Deron Williams has certainly given Jack a run for his money after putting up two consecutive double digit assist outings in his last two games. We'll be monitoring this situation closely, but if Jack does return to the starting lineup, Williams' value will take a sizable hit. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 1:09 pm
    • Michael Carter-Williams probable Wednesday
      Michael Carter-Williams is officially being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the 76ers.

      Advice: MCW's return will send Jerryd Bayless back to the bench, and his value will take a sizable hit with the demotion. Players tend to have great games against their former teams, and with Carter-Williams' former team being the Sixers (a team ranking in the bottom three in defensive efficiency), MCW could be in for a big game. Check back for an official update closer to Wednesday's tip, and if he's a go, he'll make for a strong play in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 11:07 am
    • Patrick Beverley questionable for Wednesday
      Patrick Beverley (flu-like symptoms) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

      Advice: Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni filled in for Beverley on Monday as he missed the Rockets' game against the Wolves with the same illness. While neither player had a big game in Beverley's absence, Terry has more fantasy potential of the two if Beverley sits again on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 10:34 am
    • Isaiah Thomas relishes victory over Suns
      Isaiah Thomas said it felt good to beat his former team on Monday night as the Celtics beat the Suns in Phoenix.

      Advice: Thomas led the Celtics to victory with 21 points and relished beating the team that traded him last week. "It felt good to beat the team that traded you away," Thomas said. "I just love the big moment. I want to be the hero. IT2 will see plenty of run with the C's and has top-25 fantasy upside the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:18 am
    • Michael Carter-Williams optimistic about Weds
      Michael Carter-Williams (toe) said he's optimistic that he'll be able to play against the 76ers on Wednesday.

      Advice: MCW hasn't played since before the All-Star Break, but sounded ready to make his debut with his new team against his former team. "I'll be playing next game," MCW said in locker room after game. "I don't know how many minutes I'll be playing." Carter-Williams is a must-own player as the Bucks' starting point guard, but it sounds like fantasy owners may want to take a cautious approach on Wednesday if he's only playing limited minutes. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 6:47 am
    • CP3 goes for 30 & 10; key TO late seals loss
      Chris Paul was spectacular pretty much all night on Monday, scoring 30 points, four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and two threes, but a late turnover sealed the Clippers' 90-87 loss to the Grizzlies.

      Advice: Paul is gaining a reputation for mistakes in big moments and that's a bit unfair, but he's still in his prime and he can totally redeem himself by going huge in the playoffs. He has dropped off a bit in the overall rankings with just top 5-7 value on a per-game basis in 9- and 8-cat leagues, respectively, but counting games played he's a top 3-4 asset. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 10:47 pm
    • Bradley goes berserk w/ 23 points, six steals
      Avery Bradley scored 23 points on 8-of-14 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds, three assists and six steals in Monday's road win over the Suns.

      Advice: Bradley hit all four of his freebies for good measure. The addition of Isaiah Thomas is probably going to help him because of the point guard's ability to penetrate and find shooters on the perimeter. The two had extremely good chemistry tonight and Bradley should be owned in all formats. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:47 pm
    • Turner holding onto his role with IT in town
      Evan Turner logged 32 minutes on Monday against the Suns, scoring 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including a three) with eight rebounds, four assists and one steal.

      Advice: By now you know the story with Turner, whose value is depressed in standard leagues due to poor efficiency and bad peripherals. So far the arrival of Isaiah Thomas hasn't hit him yet, but Turner didn't look all that great tonight and there's really no need for him to facilitate the offense with Thomas around. He's really only worth owning in points leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:41 pm
    • The Pizza Guy delivers in win over the Suns
      New Celtics PG Isaiah Thomas returned to Phoenix just a week after he was traded away, carving up the Suns for 21 points, seven assists, three treys and one steal in 27 minutes.

      Advice: It's clear the Celtics are going to rely on Thomas to generate much of their offense and though they could decide to hold his minutes in the 27-30 range, it wouldn't be surprising if he's running starter's minutes sometime soon. He has top-25 upside and he's probably looking at early round returns no matter what, as now the Suns join the Kings in looking silly for letting the Pizza Guy go. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:35 pm
    • Deron Williams looks good in another start
      Deron Williams was effective against the Nuggets on Monday with 16 points, five rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and one turnover.

      Advice: Jarrett Jack missed his second consecutive game and it's led to consecutive double-doubles for Williams. It's been a while since he had one of those with his last double-double coming back on Dec. 16. Jack was ruled out this morning, so he's likely going to miss more time. Williams should be viewed as a must-start player until further notice. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:25 pm
    • Lowry busts out of slump with 22 and five
      Kyle Lowry scored 22 points on 8-of-19 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds, five assists and three steals in Monday's loss to the Pelicans.

      Advice: Lowry had been in a small slump as the return of DeMar DeRozan was bound to shake things up, even if just temporarily. The buy low window shuts with this outing, if it existed in the first place. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:08 pm
    • Brooks scores just four points against Bucks
      Aaron Brooks scored just four points on Monday, hitting 2-of-9 shots from the field with one rebound and two assists in 19 minutes.

      Advice: Brooks had a nice month of January but it has been downhill ever since and he can be left on waivers in most standard formats. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:30 pm
    • Carter-Williams to make Bucks debut vs. PHI
      Michael Carter-Williams (toe) said he would make his Bucks debut in Wednesday's game against his old Sixers squad.

      Advice: Carter-Williams' stats are about to flatten out with less usage and (hopefully) better efficiency. He's a must-own player in 8-cat leagues and if you're punting turnovers in 9-cat leagues the same applies. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 7:59 pm
    • Bayless posts low-end line in start for Bucks
      Jerryd Bayless drew another start on Monday against the Bulls, scoring eight points on 4-of-10 shooting with eight rebounds, five assists and one steal in 32 minutes.

      Advice: Michael Carter-Williams (foot) sounds like he will play against his old Sixers squad on Wednesday, so that will put a serious damper on Bayless' short-term value. Over the long-term, MCW isn't exactly known for his durability and owners will want to keep a close eye on Bayless or even see how things play out this week. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 7:52 pm
    • Goran Dragic looks much better with 23 & 10
      Goran Dragic showed why the Heat traded for him on Monday with 23 points, two rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He only had one assist in his Heat debut on Saturday and was on the other end of the spectrum tonight. Dragic was highly involved in the offense and he should add plenty more double-doubles with his new team. He's one of the best point guards in the paint, which should complement the rest of the starters. He's a must-start player. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 7:15 pm
    • Michael Carter-Williams will not play Monday
      Michael Carter-Williams (toe) will not play on Monday against the Bulls.

      Advice: MCW has been dealing with the toe injury since before being traded to Milwaukee, and it's not a surprise he'll be out once again on Monday. Without him, Jerryd Bayless makes for a great plug-and-play in daily formats, and Tyler Ennis should once again draw the assignment as his backup. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 10:20 am
    • Jarrett Jack will not play vs. Denver on MON
      Jarrett Jack (hamstring) will not play against the Nuggets on Monday.

      Advice: Jack was doubtful on Sunday, so it would have taken a miracle to see him out there on Monday. Former franchise face Deron Williams will draw another start, and he gets to do it against the dumpster fire that is the Denver Nuggets. D-Will started the last game against the Lakers and went for 12 points, four rebounds, 15 assists, two steals and a block (five turnovers) in just under 40 minutes. He'll get all of the minutes he can handle tonight, making him an obvious option to consider in daily formats. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:45 am
    • Spoelstra wants to make Dragic comfortable
      Erik Spoelstra said of his "biggest priorities" is to make Goran Dragic "feel comfortable as soon as we can."

      Advice: "It was tough. Sometimes you didn’t know where to go," Dragic said of his debut with his new teammates. Spoelstra also said that the Heat want to "play to his strengths" when talking about Dragic's acclimation, and it will be an adjustment process for all involved. Even Dwyane Wade admitted it will take some time to play with another guy who can create off the dribble, and it sounds like the Heat will be tinkering with their new look for at least the next several contests. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 7:12 am
    • Westbrook trying to become a better leader
      Russell Westbrook said that he's "trying to do a better job of leading."

      Advice: If he wants to lead by example, then Westbrook is doing quite well. Since the All-Star break, Westbrook has been on fire with averages of 29.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 12.3 assists, a steal and 1.3 triples on 51.8 percent shooting. Throughout the entire month of February, Westbrook checks in with averages of 30.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, 10.1 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.4 triples on 49.4 percent shooting. He's on his way to the Player of the Month Award, and then some. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 7:05 am
    • Reggie Jackson felt like Thunder 'scapegoat'
      Reggie Jackson said that he felt like the "scapegoat" with the Thunder.

      Advice: "I wasn't always perfect, nor was the situation, but I became the brunt of the blame there," Jackson said. "Everything bad that happened, I was the scapegoat. I'm taking all this blame, and I'm wondering: 'How am I supposed to change it all here, make an impact, in eight minutes a game?' Jackson dramatized his exit out of OKC, and he's now under tremendous pressure to succeed as Stan Van Gundy's point guard, a responsibility that Jackson says he's always wanted. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 6:19 am
    • Evan Turner hands out season-high 12 assists
      Evan Turner finished Sunday's OT defeat with 12 points on 5-of-19 shooting, six rebounds and a season-high 12 assists.

      Advice: He added two steals while turning the ball over four times in 36 minutes of action. Fantasy owners should view this line skeptically for numerous reasons -- he did this against the Lakers' lackluster defense, Isaiah Thomas was ejected during his Celts' debut off the bench, and Turner is now a combined 23-of-90 from the field over his past nine games (25.6 percent). Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 10:22 pm
    • Isaiah Thomas scores 21 points in Celts debut
      Isaiah Thomas looked good in green during his Celtics debut on Sunday, posting 21 points, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and two steals in just 25 minutes before being ejected in the fourth quarter.

      Advice: He was dealing with a minor illness, according to coach Brad Stevens, and should see his role increase steadily as he adjusts to his new team in Boston. A starting job is almost inevitable, though Thomas should see an uptick in playing time and usage rate no matter where he begins the game. Boston has him under contract for a reasonable $19.3 million over the next three seasons (through 2017-18), so they have plenty of incentive to feed him minutes over the final two months of the season. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 10:00 pm
    • Jeremy Lin scores 25 points in Lakers' OT win
      The Lakers stole an overtime win vs. the Celtics on Sunday behind Jeremy Lin, who scored 25 points and handed out six assists in just 30 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: Lin didn't play during the first quarter and seemed headed for another lousy night, but he caught fire as the game went on and was the difference-maker in L.A.'s comeback victory. The Lakers have won two of their past 18 games and they're headed nowhere this season, which is another reason to distrust Lin's ROS value, but he's at least worth stashing on your bench in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 9:56 pm
    • Avery Bradley's buzzer-beating 3pt not enough
      Avery Bradley made a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to send Sunday's game vs. the Lakers into overtime, finishing the Celtics' loss with 20 points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals.

      Advice: He shot 8-of-20 overall and missed all three of his free throw attempts, but he didn't turn the ball over all game and his clutch 3-pointer is worth watching via the link below. Bradley has been a top-100 value over the past month but his role is bound to change with Isaiah Thomas entering the backcourt rotation, so fantasy owners shouldn't take Bradley's current projections as a given. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 9:47 pm
    • Mike Conley plays through sore left wrist
      Mike Conley played through a sore left wrist vs. Portland on Sunday, hitting 6-of-15 shots to finish with 15 points, one 3-pointer, six rebounds, eight assists and two steals.

      Advice: His wrist has bothered him since late January and it's concerning that it didn't fully heal during the All-Star break, though for now there are no indications that he'll miss any games. Tonight's line is reason enough to keep him active in all leagues -- he also blocked a shot for just the sixth time all season and didn't turn the ball over in 30 minutes of action. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 9:05 pm
    • Mo Williams stays hot, scores 22 in loss Sun.
      Mo Williams continued his stellar play with the Hornets in a loss to the Mavericks on Sunday, scoring 22 points with three assists, one board, three steals and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

      Advice: The Hornets clearly got a bargain in their trade with the Wolves, as Williams has been nothing short of incredible with his new team. He scored 24 points with 11 assists and five 3-pointers on Saturday, and with Kemba Walker set to miss at least a few more weeks, Williams is going to be a must-start player for the foreseeable future. Congrats are in order if you were able to snag him off the wire. As for Brian Roberts, it's safe to drop him in almost all leagues after he failed to score in just 14 minutes. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 8:07 pm
    • Russell Westbrook dishes career-high 17 dimes
      Russell Westbrook dished out 10 assists in the second quarter Sunday's game, finishing with 21 points, eight rebounds and a career-high 17 dimes.

      Advice: Kevin Durant (foot) was out but the new-look Thunder still made quick work of the Nuggets, led by Westbrook's All-Star caliber performance. He rounded out his gaudy line with two 3-pointers and 8-of-12 shooting overall, and he trails only James Harden for 8-cat production over the past month. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 7:08 pm
    • D.J. Augustin plays well in 30 bench minutes
      D.J. Augustin logged 30 minutes in his second game coming off the Thunder bench, scoring eight points with two 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and one steal.

      Advice: He was 2-of-7 from the field and committed three turnovers, and his playing time was higher than expected due to Kyle Singler's foul trouble and Russell Westbrook's limited minutes in the blowout -- Augustin's 30 minutes were a team-high. This is a fluky line, in other words, and his trade to Oklahoma City instantly morphed him from a must-start fantasy player into a fringe option. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 7:01 pm
    • George Hill shoots 4-of-13 in 30 minutes
      George Hill shot 4-of-13 from the field on Sunday, finishing a surprising win vs. the Warriors with 12 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes.

      Advice: Hill is shooting just 38.8 percent over his past five games and has yet to play more than 30 minutes in a game since returning from his groin injury on Jan. 23. The Pacers' caution is understandable and Hill is still providing fantasy value thanks to solid 3-pointers, assists and steals, in addition to low turnovers from the PG spot. He should only get better in the season's final eight weeks. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 5:50 pm
    • Isaiah Thomas (illness) will play on Sunday
      Isaiah Thomas is feeling under the weather, but he is going to play against the Lakers on Sunday.

      Advice: Thomas is set to come off the bench in his Boston debut behind Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley, but it's going to be interesting to see what coach Brad Stevens does with his rotations. Thomas should still see plenty of run in a bench role, so he's still worth holding onto in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 5:11 pm
    • Reggie Jackson scores 17 pts in Pistons debut
      Reggie Jackson scored 17 points with five rebounds and five assists in his Pistons' debut on Sunday, making 7-of-18 shots with one 3-pointer in 30 minutes of action.

      Advice: He immediately started and is a must-own player now that he's locked in as a starter for Detroit. He hadn't taken more than 12 shots in a game since Dec. 31 and his stats will inevitably spike across the board, so get in your trade offers while you still can. Tonight's line could have been even better but Jackson was under the weather, even becoming ill on the sidelines during the game. R-Jax's starting job is bad news for reserve G Spencer Dinwiddie, who isn't worth holding in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 3:58 pm
    • Jerryd Bayless scores 13 pts in fill-in start
      Jerryd Bayless started again on Sunday and scored 13 points on 6-of-11 shooting, adding one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 30 minutes.

      Advice: Michael Carter-Williams (foot) is day-to-day but he could miss a few more games, giving Bayless a temporary window to produce as a starter. He'll drop off instantly once MCW returns, however, so owners should get attached to the 26-year-old journeyman. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 3:09 pm
    • Jarrett Jack (hamstring) doubtful for Monday
      Jarrett Jack (hamstring) did not practice on Sunday, and he is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Nuggets.

      Advice: It's looking like Deron Williams is going to get another game to prove to head coach Lionel Hollins that he belongs in the starting lineup, and he'll draw a favorable matchup vs. Denver. Jack said that he is hopeful to give it a go for Wednesday's game against New Orleans, so it seems safe to assume he won't be available on Monday. For what it's worth, Jack said that he would try and play if it were the seventh game of a series. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 12:46 pm
    • Isaiah Thomas will come off bench on Sunday
      Isaiah Thomas will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

      Advice: It looks like Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley's job is safe for now, and it will be interesting to see what head coach Brad Stevens does with his rotations in the coming weeks. Thomas should still see plenty of run even in a bench role, so he's still worth owning in all leagues. Check back after the game to see how he fares. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 11:10 am
    • Michael Carter-Williams (foot) out Sunday
      Michael Carter-Williams (foot) will not play vs. the Hawks on Sunday according to head coach Jason Kidd.

      Advice: MCW is reportedly doing better and is expected to be reevaluated on Monday, so owners will want to check back then for an update. Jerryd Bayless will run the show again for the Bucks on Sunday, and is more than worth a look for any owner in need of short-term value. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 10:53 am
    • Isaiah Thomas going through shootaround
      Newcomers Isaiah Thomas, Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome are all going through shootaround and look set to play against the Lakers on Sunday night.

      Advice: They weren't able to meet up with the team in time to play on Friday, but all signs point to them being activated tonight. It's going to be interesting to see how Thomas fits into the rotation along with Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley, so owners will want to keep a close eye on this in the coming days. Jerebko may see a few minutes with Jared Sullinger (foot) out for the season, but Datome will probably be buried on the bench. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 10:43 am
    • Shane Larkin (illness) will not play Sunday
      Shane Larkin (illness) will not play vs. the Cavaliers on Sunday.

      Advice: Larkin is expected to be out for several days according to coach Derek Fisher, but his role isn't big enough to impact most fantasy leagues. Jose Calderon and Langston Galloway should both see an uptick in minutes on Sunday, while newcomer Alexey Shved may see the floor as well. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 8:21 am
    • Reggie Jackson will start Sunday vs. Wizards
      Reggie Jackson will be in the starting lineup against the Wizards on Sunday.

      Advice: Jackson is looking at a huge bump in his fantasy value since his move to Detroit, and he should be owned in all leagues moving forward. In 13 starts for the Thunder this season, Jackson averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 3-pointers per game, so his owners should be feeling pretty good right about now. Spencer Dinwiddie will shift to the bench on Sunday, and can now be dropped in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 7:46 am
    • Kyle Lowry has a horrible game in loss
      Kyle Lowry made 2-of-13 from the field for 11 points with one rebound, four assists and seven turnovers during a 98-76 loss on Saturday against the Rockets.

      Advice: Maybe the Pat Beverley factor is making a comeback, but Lowry is struggling these days. In his last five games, he averaged 11.2 points, 3.2 boards, 6.8 assists and 1.4 steals on 31.7 percent from the field. His numbers have plummeted since DeMar DeRozan returned, but there is still plenty of hope considering he broke out last year next to DD. Buy low if you can. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 9:52 pm
    • Goran Dragic has a slow start to Miami career
      Goran Dragic didn't play well in his first game with the Heat on Saturday during a 105-91 loss to the Pelicans, scoring 12 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: The Heat offense was lost tonight with a lot of guys standing around Dwyane Wade (19 points, four rebounds and four assists) The Heat also used a lot of three-guard lineups tonight, which was a big complaint from Dragic in Phoenix. He obviously gets a pass here and should be better on Monday against the 76ers. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 7:37 pm
    • Mario Chalmers scores 20 points vs. NO
      Mario Chalmers scored 20 points off the bench against the Pelicans on Saturday with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

      Advice: He was fantastic in his new role off the bench to start the game, but he started the second half. Chalmers did get some playing time in the fourth quarter, but amazingly he didn't score any points in garbage time. He has been wildly inconsistent and we would love to see it again, so leave him on the wire unless you need steals and treys badly. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 7:27 pm
    • D.J. Augustin plays 23 minutes in OKC debut
      D.J. Augustin played 23 minutes in his Thunder debut on Saturday with 12 points, three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: The important thing here is that he did play next to Russell Westbrook. It was for 10 minutes and he played down the stretch. This does sounds great and all, but there just are not going to be many shots for DJA once Kevin Durant comes back. He's not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 7:06 pm
    • Russell Westbrook carries Thunder sans KD
      Russell Westbrook took over against the Hornets on Saturday with 33 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and six turnovers on 12-of-27 from the field.

      Advice: He had 43.2 usage rate and a 47.6 assist percentage tonight, which is almost incomprehensible for a guy with 36 minutes. Westbrook is climbing into the MVP talk and few players can fill the stat sheet like he can in recent memory. In fact, he has a 37.4 usage rate and a 46.0 assist percentage on the season, which has never been done by anyone in the history of the NBA through a season (among minutes qualifiers). Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 7:02 pm
    • Mo Williams thrives in first Charlotte start
      Mo Williams had an exceptional start to his Hornet career on Saturday, scoring 24 points with four rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

      Advice: Wow. He made the 1,000th 3-pointer of his career and he's likely going to make a heck of a lot more based on how he launched 10 attempts tonight. Williams is really a nice fit to help space the floor with Al Jefferson posting up and they really don't have a great shooter on the team right now. We still won't see Kemba Walker for a few more weeks, so Williams could be a top-50 guy until then. If you want help now, you almost have to add him after this one. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:20 pm
    • Mario Chalmers starts 2nd half vs. Pelicans
      Mario Chalmers started the second half against the Pelicans, with Udonis Haslem shifting to the bench.

      Advice: The Pelicans lost Anthony Davis (shoulder) and Ryan Anderson (knee) for the game, so the Heat opted to go with a smaller lineup to better matchup with New Orleans. Even if Chalmers continues to come off the bench in the future, he should be able to chip in enough points, assists, steals and 3-pointers to be worth holding onto in most leagues. Haslem, on the other hand, isn't a reliable fantasy asset in almost any league. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:06 pm
    • Enter the Dragon: Goran Dragic will start
      Goran Dragic will start against the Pelicans on Saturday.

      Advice: "We brought him here to play. We brought him here to start," coach Erik Spoelstra said. Dragic and the Heat will play at a faster tempo and the former Sun should be operating with the ball a lot more. He also played next to some floor-spacing guys, so it'll be interesting to see how he fits in with some new guys. Obviously, he should see a full complement of minutes and is a must-start player. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 2:58 pm
    • Mo Williams will start vs. the Thunder
      Mo Williams will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

      Advice: It's his first game with the team and he's already beat Brian Roberts for the starting job, which sums up how poorly Roberts played. Williams probably won't play more than 30 minutes tonight considering how often he's hurt. Plus, throwing him out there for more than 30 minutes against Russell Westbrook sounds like a cruel punishment. Williams is more of a scorer than Roberts, so expect slightly less scoring output from Gerald Henderson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 2:19 pm
    • Goran Dragic will play on Saturday night
      Goran Dragic will play against the Pelicans on Saturday night.

      Advice: Coach Erik Spoelstra also said he expects to see the Heat increase their pace.That's a great sign all around because the Heat rank dead last in the NBA in pace this season. With Dragic in the mix, Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier will lose playing, which is too bad after both played very well on Friday. Dragic should see his fantasy value increase and it'll go up even higher when the Heat rest Dwyane Wade. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 12:46 pm
    • Michael Carter-Williams is doubtful for Sun
      Michael Carter-Williams (foot) is doubtful to play against the Hawks on Sunday.

      Advice: The Bucks had some against-the-grain thinking here, trading away one of the most improved point guards in the NBA for a point guard who is regressing in MCW. Carter-Williams was expected to miss a few games with the 76ers due to his foot issue, so we're not expecting him to play on Sunday. Until the Bucks officially buy out Larry Sanders, their roster is stuck at 15, so Jerryd Bayless and Tyler Ennis are their only healthy point guards. Bayless has very nice value in the next couple games. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 11:44 am
    • Coach SVG intends to keep Reggie Jackson
      Head coach Stan Van Gundy made it clear that Reggie Jackson will be his long-term answer at point guard for the Pistons.

      Advice: "We wouldn't have made the move we did if we didn't feel ready to make it a long-term commitment," Van Gundy said Friday. "There's no guarantees. He's a [restricted free agent]. We know we can keep him through next year no matter what he does, but we feel good about making a long-term commitment to him and hopefully he'll feel real comfortable making a long-term commitment here and we'll get it done." Jackson has an incredible opportunity to start and play big minutes for Detroit, and he shouldn't be floating around any waiver wires at this point. In 13 starts for the Thunder this season, Jackson averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 3-pointers per game, so his owners should prepare to be amazed. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:18 am
    • Jeremy Lin scores 18 points on Friday
      Jeremy Lin scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting (1-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-8 FTs) with one rebound, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: We don't trust Byron Scott or Lin as far as we can throw them these days, but this is a decent showing for a guy who has been lacking in both confidence and production lately. He's not a must-add player or even a strong add, but he's worth keeping an eye on in case he can get on track with a terribly shallow squad. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:59 am
    • D-Will gets on the board with 12 and 15 night
      Deron Williams started for Jarrett Jack (hamstring) on Friday against the Lakers, scoring 12 points on 6-of-14 shooting (no threes) with four rebounds, 15 assists, two steals, one block and five turnovers in 40 minutes.

      Advice: Nice. And it's about time. Surely the All Star break helped him get his legs back and some time off probably didn't hurt the noggin, either. We're nowhere near declaring that he's back in the vicinity of his early season production, especially after beating up on L.A., but this outing makes him an interesting gambler's target via trade. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:42 am
    • Tony Parker stinks like Pepe Le Pew
      Tony Parker missed all four shots from the field in 21 minutes against the Warriors on Friday, scoring two points at the line with one rebound, six assists, two steals and two turnovers.

      Advice: His numbers actually aren't bad on the second half of back-to-back sets this season, averaging 14.1 points, 1.9 boards, 4.8 assists and 0.6 treys. Parker's minutes were down partially because of the score, so he probably will be closer to 30 most nights. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:13 am
    • Bradley fills it up against sloppy Kings team
      Avery Bradley scored 28 points on 12-of-22 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, six assists, four steals and a block in 41 minutes on Friday against the Kings.

      Advice: Bradley has picked up the pace since Rajon Rondo left and he should be owned in all standard formats, but he might lose a little volume on his scoring with Isaiah Thomas coming into the fold. Then again, the addition of a playmaker could free him for more 3-point looks. It's worth mentioning that tonight's output came against a Kings team that turned the ball over 24 times. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:05 am
    • Turner posts inefficient popcorn line
      Evan Turner hit just 3-of-14 shots in Friday's loss, finishing with seven points, five rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one 3-pointer and five turnovers in 37 minutes.

      Advice: Turner's already suspect value in standard leagues is going to take a sizable hit when Isaiah Thomas joins the team. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 12:56 am
    • Jerryd Bayless flirts w/ trip-dub in 39 mins
      Jerryd Bayless made his first start at point guard of the season on Friday against the Nuggets, scoring 11 points with seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

      Advice: He had Tyler Ennis back him up, but it was all Bayless tonight with the play-making. Michael Carter-Williams (foot) is going to miss more games and O.J. Mayo's hamstring is ailing, so Bayless is going to be very busy in the next week or so. He has very nice short-term appeal for owners in all depths. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:30 pm
    • Mario Chalmers picks up eight steals vs. NYK
      Mario Chalmers picked up an NBA season-high eight steals against the Knicks on Friday with 13 points, seven assists, six rebounds and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: It was a nice finale for Chalmers because his starting job is gone with Goran Dragic set to take over. Chalmers will lose playing time and is not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:23 pm
    • C.J. Watson scores just two points
      C.J. Watson scored just two points against the 76ers on Friday with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and three turnovers.

      Advice: He may have more minutes headed his way with Rodney Stuckey going down tonight. Watson has been awful in his last five, averaging just 7.8 points, 2.8 boards, 3.6 assists and 1.4 treys on 37.5 percent from the field. He's still a very risky play even if Stuckey misses time. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 8:56 pm
    • George Hill struggles against the 76ers
      George Hill cooled off against the 76ers on Friday with seven points, four rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 23 minutes.

      Advice: He had some serious momentum heading into the break, averaging 15.0 points, 2.8 boards, 6.0 dimes, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys on 50.0 percent from the field in his previous five games. Hill is going to play around 30 minutes most nights and we expect him to be better on Sunday against Golden State. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 8:51 pm
    • Jerryd Bayless starting at point guard
      Jerryd Bayless will start at point guard on Friday against the Nuggets.

      Advice: It'll be his first start at point guard this season and he'll start next to Khris Middleton, Jared Dudley, John Henson and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Bayless' backup is Tyler Ennis tonight, so he should see major minutes. He's a very popular DFS play, and justifiably so. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 3:59 pm
    • Isaiah Thomas not expected to play Friday
      Isaiah Thomas is flying to Boston on Friday and isn't expected to have a physical until Saturday, leaving him unlikely to play on Friday night.

      Advice: That should mean plenty of run for Evan Turner, Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley tonight against the Kings. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 2:49 pm
    • Reggie Jackson refused to play earlier in yr?
      Reggie Jackson was cleared to play on Nov. 1 following an ankle injury, but "refused to because of disappointment that he wasn’t traded before the Oct. 31 extension deadline," according to Royce Young of ESPN.com.

      Advice: Wow. It became clear that Jackson didn't want to be there based on Kevin Durant saying on Thursday that the team "felt like everybody wanted to be here except for one guy." Considering this information, general manager Sam Presti gets even more credit for getting back so much in the deal yesterday. As for Jackson, he's not playing tonight, but he should put up big numbers. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 2:12 pm
    • Deron Williams likely to start Friday vs. LAL
      Deron Williams will likely slide back into the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Lakers with Jarret Jack (hamstring) unavailable.

      Advice: He's going to get a very favorable matchup tonight, and there's a chance his return to the starting lineup becomes a permanent change. Williams is averaging 15.6 points, 6.8 assists, and 1.6 three-pointers per game as a starter, so owners will need to hope he can keep his job once Jack is healthy. As a side note, the Nets are paying Williams $19.8 million this season compared to Jack's $6.3 million. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 12:43 pm
    • Jerryd Bayless expected to start on Friday
      The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel expects Jerryd Bayless to start at point guard in Friday's game against the Nuggets.

      Advice: Brandon Knight was shipped to Phoenix Thursday, newly acquired Michael Carter-Williams (toe) is hurt and Jorge Gutierrez's second 10-day contract has expired. It leaves Bayless as the man at the point as the Bucks play up in pace against the Nugs. He's averaging 7.9 points, 3.1 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.5 treys while playing 21.2 minutes a night as a reserve this season. Bayless is worth a look in daily formats as he projects closer to 31-34 minutes. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 12:34 pm
    • Jarrett Jack (hamstring) will not play on Fri
      Jarrett Jack (hamstring) will not play against the Lakers on Friday.

      Advice: With Jack unavailable, Deron Williams should be ready to take his job back in the starting lineup, and perhaps keep it. He's going to get a very favorable matchup against a horrid Lakers' squad, and he's someone to consider as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 12:28 pm
    • Reggie Jackson, Tayshaun Prince out Friday
      Reggie Jackson and Tayshaun Prince have both officially been ruled out for Friday's game against the Bulls.

      Advice: It will be Spencer Dinwiddie starting at point guard, and Caron Butler at small forward for tonight's game, with Dinwiddie being the most intriguing plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Jackson, however, is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Wizards, so Dinwiddie's status as a starter will be short-lived. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:52 am
    • Goran Dragic aiming for Saturday
      Goran Dragic is hoping to make his Heat debut on Saturday, meaning he will not play Friday vs. the Knicks.

      Advice: If the Dragic brothers, and other players involved in the trade, all pass their physicals, look for Goran to start on Saturday. In the meantime, Mario Chalmers could have a big game Friday for the shorthanded Knicks. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:40 am
    • Reggie Jackson doubtful to play on Friday
      Reggie Jackson was not at the Pistons' shootaround, and he is doubtful for Friday's game against the Bulls.

      Advice: Spencer Dinwiddie has already been named as the starter for tonight's game, so it's safe to assume Jackson will be unavailable for this one. Stan Van Gundy did tell Jackson that he will be in the starting lineup on Sunday if he's cleared before tip-off, so owners will need to wait a couple days before they get to see a revitalized Jackson in Detroit. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:17 am
    • Report: MIA prepared to offer Dragic max-deal
      The Heat are expected to offer Goran Dragic a five-year, max-contract worth upwards of $100 million when he opts out of his contract to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

      Advice: Miami wouldn't have given up two first-round draft picks without feeling good about their chances of retaining Dragic this offseason, and his fantasy value is due for a significant boost with the move to South Beach. Mario Chalmers' value on the other hand is due to take a sizable hit, as he's forced to a bench role to accommodate The Dragon in the starting unit. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 6:20 am
    • Chris Paul drops 16 dimes, scores 22 points
      Chris Paul handed out 16 assists against the Spurs on Thursday during a 119-115 win, adding 22 points, five rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: This was a huge win for the Clippers to move them up to No. 5 in the Western Conference standings. CP3's numbers have taken off without Blake Griffin (elbow) in his last three, averaging 19.7 points, 5.7 boards, 13.7 assists and 1.3 treys -- all wins against Western Conference playoff teams (Spurs, Rockets and Mavericks). Paul raised his assists to 9.8 per game with tonight's performance and there's a chance he can catch John Wall and Ty Lawson (10.1) for the league lead. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 11:25 pm
    • Tony Parker hands out season-high 13 dimes
      Tony Parker handed out a season-high 13 assists against the Clippers on Thursday, adding 21 points, three rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: Surprisingly, it's his first double-double of the season and tonight was a massive improvement from his previous five February games, averaging 16.4 points, 2.0 boards, 4.4 assists and no steals. Parker should have more big lines like this one along the way and he's slightly less likely to get "popped" with the Spurs not having a great record. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 10:41 pm
    • All-Star Game Mode: Westbrook explodes for 34
      Russell Westbrook looked like he was playing in the 2015 All-Star Game during Thursday's 104-89 win over the Mavericks, making 9-of-17 from the field and all 14 free throws for 34 points with five rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, two 3-pointers and six turnovers.

      Advice: It was almost like Dallas couldn't stop him with a 10-man lineup. He was ridiculous in the fourth quarter, posting a net rating of 61.1, a usage rate of 55.6, and an 80.0 effective field goal percentage. Westbrook would likely get even more chances to score should Kevin Durant need to rest. Regardless, no guard has the potential to fill the stat sheet like Bestbrook. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 9:06 pm
    • Reggie Jackson slightly doubtful to play Fri?
      Team beat writer Keith Langlois said it would "be surprising" to see Reggie Jackson play on Friday against the Bulls.

      Advice: If that's the case, that means we will see John Lucas III and Spencer Dinwiddie handle the rock for the Pistons while trying to guard Derrick Rose. As for Jackson, he is going to dominate the ball. Jackson had a 27.3 usage rate when he wasn't playing next to Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, so he'll have a chance to score 20 per game with plenty of other stats. Those who stashed him hit the jackpot. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 5:29 pm
    • Jarrett Jack (hamstring) doesn't practice
      Jarrett Jack (left hamstring) did not practice on Thursday and is questionable to play against the Lakers on Friday.

      Advice: He had a sore hamstring back on Feb. 11, so it's somewhat troubling to hear he's still dealing with it right now. However, Jack is a massive winner from the deadline with the Nets not making moves. He should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 1:23 pm
    • D.J. Augustin traded from DET to the Thunder
      D.J. Augustin has been traded to the Thunder in the big Reggie Jackson deal.

      Advice: The Thunder cleaned up and they got their man as a backup point guard. Russell Westbrook will play minutes in the mid-30s, so that means Augustin should only play minutes in the teens. Although, they could use some DJ-Westy lineups and get DJ to around 20 minutes. That said, he's a cut candidate in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 12:42 pm
    • Update: Isaiah Thomas headed to Boston
      Isaiah Thomas has been sent to the Boston Celtics as part of a four-team deal.

      Advice: Thomas could be looking at the starting point guard spot in Boston, and he's likely going to hurt the value of Marcus Smart. He'll be entering a crowded backcourt rotation, with Evan Turner and Smart vying for minutes, but he should easily sustain value in standard leagues as a member of the Celtics. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 12:22 pm
    • Goran Dragic traded to Heat at the buzzer
      Goran Dragic has been traded from the Suns to the Heat for a package that includes four players and two first-round draft picks.

      Advice: The Suns received a good haul for Dragic, who demanded a trade due to unhappiness with his role. He gives the Heat a huge upgrade at point guard and makes them a more dangerous playoff team, and his fantasy value should surge with less competition in Miami. His brother Zoran Dragic was also dealt to Miami as part of the bargain. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 11:48 am
    • George Hill likely to play 28-32 minutes
      George Hill (groin) isn't on a minute-limit but coach Frank Vogel doesn't intend to play him more than 28-32 minutes per game.

      Advice: "[Hill's playing time] is unlimited, but we want to be smart," Vogel said. "I'll probably keep it around seven or eight minutes a quarter." That's enough run for Hill to maintain solid value in all formats and he's safe to keep active -- the conservative minutes may actually be a benefit for owners if it prevents Hill from suffering another setback. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 10:46 am
    • Shane Larkin will not play Friday vs Heat
      Shane Larkin (illness) will not play against the Heat on Friday.

      Advice: While Larkin's illness shouldn't keep him out long, he's not worth owning in standard fantasy leagues anyway. Even though he could have more playing time open up if Jose Calderon is traded, Larkin is better off left on the wire for now. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 10:15 am
    • Report: Jarrett Jack mentioned in OKC talks
      The Nets may include Jarrett Jack in a potential trade sending Brook Lopez to Oklahoma City for a package including Reggie Jackson, according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports.

      Advice: Berger notes that there are "lots of moving parts" in these talks and the whole deal could fall apart, but a trade to OKC would be very bad news for Jack's fantasy value. He's currently starting ahead of Deron Williams but would be stuck behind Russell Westbrook in Oklahoma City, so Jack's owners should be rooting for him to either stay in Brooklyn or be dealt to a third team. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:06 am
    • Heat offering two 1st-round picks for Dragic?
      Miami is offering two future first-round picks for Goran Dragic, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com.

      Advice: Broussard adds Suns owner Robert Sarver is "being stubborn," which doesn't really hold much weight with several hours to go until the deadline. Additionally, the Heat probably won't have their 2015 pick because it's going to the 76ers -- it's top-10 protected, but Miami should make the playoffs. Dragic is reportedly interested in the Heat, but they really don't have the assets. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 7:44 am
    • Swaggy P says Lin should pass more
      Nick Young said that Jeremy Lin should have "focused on passing a little bit more."

      Advice: "Especially when Kobe was out there, [Jeremy] needed to drop dimes," Young said. This is the least surprising quote of the week. Lin has a somewhat high 20.8 usage rate while he's on the court with Young this season, so Young would probably rather see it fall to like 2.08. Lin hasn't played well at all and isn't worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
