    • Jared Dudley scores 18 points in start
      Jared Dudley stayed hot against the Blazers on Saturday night with 18 points, six rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He lit it up on Thursday in his first start with a full 17-point line. Ersan Ilyasova (groin) is likely going to miss more time and the Bucks have looked amazing in their last two games with their smaller lineup. Dudley has enough upside to grab in standard leagues. Although, he would likely cool off once Ilyasova is back. Rotoworld.com

    • John Henson has another big game in win
      John Henson made his second consecutive start on Saturday against the Blazers with 14 points, eight rebounds, one assist and four blocks in 27 minutes.

      Advice: He had a double-double on Thursday and is clearly capitalizing on his chance with Zaza Pachulia (calf) out of the lineup. Pachulia is a slow healer, so Henson could get some extra run for a while. If you want to give him a look in even a shallow league and see if he can keep it going, it's not a bad idea. Rotoworld.com

    • Thomas Robinson starts the second half
      Thomas Robinson started the second half of Saturday's game against the Bucks, finishing with four points, six rebounds, three steals and one block in 24 minutes.

      Advice: Coach Terry Stotts has started three different centers in his last three halves. Basically, trying to solve a Stotts rotation is harder to do than simultaneously solving a Rubik's Cube and a New York Times crossword puzzle while looking at a Magic Eye. In other words, leave Robinson on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Bonner returns to bench role Saturday
      Matt Bonner shifted to the bench for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers, chipping in with one rebound in eight minutes of action.

      Advice: Tiago Splitter moved back into the starting lineup for this one, but no lineup is permanent when coach Gregg Popovich is at the helm. Neither Bonner nor Splitter will have large enough roles to matter in most leagues, so they can be left on the wire with confidence. Rotoworld.com

    • Jodie Meeks lays an egg in win over Rockets
      Jodie Meeks failed to score in just 19 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

      Advice: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope went nuts tonight, scoring 28 points, hitting six 3-pointers and racking up a massive stat line, so Meeks simply watched from the bench. He'll bounce back, but at this point, we'd rather own KCP, who is starting for the Pistons. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:05 pm
    • Caldwell-Pope breaks out with 28, huge line
      Kentavious Caldwell-Pope got hot on Saturday and racked up 28 points, five rebounds, four assists, a steal, three blocks and six 3-pointers in a home win over the Rockets.

      Advice: Jodie Meeks failed to score and D.J. Augustin appears to enjoy feeding the ball to KCP. The 28 points were easily a season high, but he scored 30 on the final day of last season to notch his career high. The three blocks and six triples were both career highs, and KCP could be ready to go on a tear. Just beware that he had scored four points in two of his previous four games, so he could struggle with consistency, despite the huge game. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:03 pm
    • Tiago Splitter returns to starting lineup
      Tiago Splitter returned to the starting lineup in place of Matt Bonner for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers, scoring eight points with one rebound, one assist and one steal in 17 minutes.

      Advice: Splitter and Bonner have practically rotated in and out of the starting lineup recently, but coach Gregg Popovich wasn't about to let Bonner go up against DeAndre Jordan in this one. Splitter was actually a DNP-CD on Wednesday, so the uncertainty of his role moving forward will make him very tough to own in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:02 pm
    • D.J. Augustin busts Rockets for 28 points
      D.J. Augustin wasn't bothered by Patrick Beverley and racked up 28 points, two rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 8-of-13 shooting in Saturday's win over the Rockets.

      Advice: Hopefully you didn't panic and drop him after he missed all seven of his shots and had two points on Wednesday. The 12 dimes were easily a season high, but he scored 35 points last Sunday. He should be good to go throughout the rest of the season with Brandon Jennings done for the year with an Achilles injury. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:57 pm
    • Kyle Singler scores 14 points in win
      Kyle Singler had 14 points, four rebounds, four assists, three steals and two 3-pointers on 6-of-12 shooting in another start on Saturday.

      Advice: This was his first double-digit scoring night in five games (he failed to score in his previous game) and just the fifth of January. We'd need to see him start playing like this on a regular basis before telling you to pick him up, but if you rolled the dice on him in DFS, he came through. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:51 pm
    • Corey Brewer scores 10 in loss to Rockets
      Corey Brewer hit 3-of-5 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, three rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes off the bench on Saturday.

      Advice: Brewer has quietly scored in double figures in seven straight games, making him a borderline look in many leagues. But if James Harden's bruised knee develops into a problem, he could become a must-add. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:36 pm
    • Lorenzo Brown plays 48 minutes, scores one
      Lorenzo Brown played 48 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday with six rebounds, nine assists and three turnovers.

      Advice: He's just the second player since 1986 to play 48 minutes in a regulation game and score one or less points (Dennis Rodman). Brown had his one chance to do something tonight, but he'll be back to a reserve role with Ricky Rubio (ankle) coming back on Monday. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:29 pm
    • JaVale McGee plays 16 minutes Saturday
      JaVale McGee logged 16 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Hornets, finishing with eight points, one board and two blocks.

      Advice: His playing time will likely hover around 15 minutes per game for the foreseeable future as the Nuggets will want to make sure that he remains healthy. Unless you are in a ridiculously deep league and are desperate for blocks, McGee is not a reliable fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:25 pm
    • D-Mo stays hot in Rockets loss to Pistons
      Donatas Motiejunas hit 10-of-13 shots for 21 points, four rebounds and three assists in Saturday's loss at Detroit.

      Advice: Dwight Howard is expected to miss a month with his knee injury, so D-Mo's not going anywhere. Some blocks, steals and more boards would have been nice, but at least he shot lights out. He racked up a career-high 26 points with 12 points and three 3-pointers on Friday night, so it's clear he's in the zone right now. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:20 pm
    • Danilo Gallinari scores 15 points in start
      Danilo Gallinari played 24 minutes in a start at power forward against the Hornets on Saturday, scoring 15 points with four boards, two assists and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: It was the most minutes he had played since returning from yet another knee injury, so it will be interesting to see how his body responds to the increased workload. Gallinari can be a decent source of points and 3-pointers if he stays healthy, but the Nuggets will likely keep his minutes in check for the foreseeable future which will really dampen his outlook. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:11 pm
    • Cody Zeller scores career-high 21 points Sat
      Cody Zeller scored a career-high 21 points in a win over the Nuggets on Saturday while adding eight boards, three assists, three steals and two blocks in 32 minutes.

      Advice: It was arguably the best offensive game of his career, as he was able to connect on 10 of his 11 shots from the field. Marvin Williams' (head) absence opened up some extra minutes tonight, but Zeller definitely made the most of his opportunity. If you're in need of a big, it's not a bad idea to take a flier on Zeller. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:06 pm
    • Danilo Gallinari will start at power forward
      Danilo Gallinari will start at power forward in place of Kenneth Faried (illness) against the Hornets.

      Advice: He is very likely to have a minutes cap tonight and we'd be surprised to see him play more than 26 minutes. Gallinari has a slew of knee injuries, so it's going to be hard to grab him in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 5:30 pm
    • Donats Motiejunas scores 26 points vs. Boston
      Donatas Motiejunas made 11-of-16 from the field for a career-high 26 points against the Celtics on Friday during a 93-87 win, adding 12 rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He had a productive 16-point game on Wednesday and the loss of Dwight Howard seems like it'll help out D-Mo quite a bit. Motiejunas is more than capable of playing center for the Rockets and the team is really going to push the pace now that they'll have smaller lineups, so he's going to be worth owning in standard leagues for now. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:39 pm
    • Lorenzo Brown plays 23 minutes
      Lorenzo Brown played 23 minutes off the bench against the 76ers on Friday with two rebounds, three assists and two steals.

      Advice: With Zach LaVine going down due to an ankle injury, Brown had a chance for a revenge game against his 2013-14 team. Although, LaVine did return and Mo Williams could be back for Saturday, so there's little reason to add him. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 6:30 pm
    • Danilo Gallinari scores eight points
      Danilo Gallinari scored eight points with three rebounds and one 3-pointer in 14 minutes against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

      Advice: The Nuggets were blown out badly, but Gallinari did play in garbage time. In fact, six of his eight points came in the last 91 seconds of the game. He is going to have a minutes restriction for maybe the rest of the season, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:50 pm
    • JaVale McGee plays 15 minutes in return
      JaVale McGee scored two points with five rebounds, one assist and one block in 15 minutes against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

      Advice: It was his first game back since Dec. 5 and he's going to be limited for a while. McGee admitted can't jump as well off his left leg, so it's fair to assume he'll have a minutes cap until further notice. He can be left on the wire in the vast majority of leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:38 pm
    • John Henson scores 12 points with 11 rebounds
      John Henson started against the Magic on Thursday during a 115-100 win, scoring 12 points with 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 24 minutes.

      Advice: He looked great in the starting unit and there might be a position battle should Zaza Pachulia (calf) miss time. Henson does have some eye-catching upside for his ability to block shots, so fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on him. Unless you don't care about foul shooting, it's probably best to see what happens his next time out before grabbing him. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:29 pm
    • Jared Dudley scores 17 points in start
      Jared Dudley moved into the starting lineup for Ersan Ilyasova on Thursday, scoring 17 points with four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

      Advice: The Bucks were rolling on offense with 12 triples tonight. Dudley was really cooling off before tonight, but the loss of Ilyasova should open up some playing time for Dudley. With Ghostface Ilya only day-to-day, Dudley is more of a stop-gap add for now. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:13 pm
    • JaVale McGee will again be active on Thursday
      JaVale McGee will again be available to play Thursday vs. Memphis.

      Advice: McGee was available for the Nuggets' last game, but spent the entire game glued to the bench. He does however have a chance to step into the rotation tonight with the Nuggets looking for some size to go up against Memphis' imposing frontcourt of Marc Gasol and Zach Randolph. However, he's unlikely to do enough statistically to be worth using in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 3:42 pm
    • John Henson will start at center Thursday
      John Henson will replace Zaza Pachulia (calf) in the starting lineup for Thursday's game vs. Orlando.

      Advice: Henson offers a lot of upside, and with a favorable matchup against the Magic, he's looking like a fine plug-and-play in daily leagues. It's going to be hard for head coach Jason Kidd to limit Henson's minutes tonight with Ersan Ilyasova, and Zaza unavailable. Kenyon Martin could also pick up some extended minutes tonight as one of the few healthy big men left on the roster, although he's unlikely to contribute much to the stat sheet. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 3:03 pm
    • Jared Dudley will start at PF on Thursday
      Jared Dudley will start at power forward for Thursday's game against Orlando with Ersan Ilyasova (groin) unavailable.

      Advice: Dudley is more of a 3-point specialist, but he could see an uptick in value with the move to the starting lineup and a favorable matchup against the Magic. He's worth a dice roll for those playing daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 2:54 pm
    • Kyle Singler no longer Man Behind The Mask
      Kyle Singler (nose) said will no longer wear a protective mask for the broken nose he suffered on January 21.

      Advice: Singler was held scoreless for the second time in 143 NBA starts on Wednesday and will look to get back on track against the Rockets on Saturday. The 26-year-old is averaging just 6.0 points, 3.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 1.4 three-pointers over his last five games and doesn't provide much fantasy value outside deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 7:12 am
    • Cody Zeller scores nine in full line vs. SA
      Cody Zeller played 37 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday with nine points, 13 rebounds, seven assists, one 3-pointer and one block.

      Advice: He set career highs in assists and treys tonight. Zeller's involvement in the offense seems to be trending up with Kemba Walker (knee) out for six weeks and Marvin Williams (head) out for some time, as well. Zeller is worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:37 pm
    • Tiago Splitter gets a DNP-Cd
      Tiago Splitter was a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

      Advice: Coach Gregg Popovich decided to sit him down. Splitter has a ton of calf injuries, but there is no indication that that issue was a problem. He's not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:09 pm
    • Lorenzo Brown plays 24 minutes
      Lorenzo Brown played 24 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday with 10 points, one rebound, three assists and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: Not bad. Brown is only on a 10-day deal and chances are he's going to be off the team once Ricky Rubio (ankle) is ready to go. That is likely to be within the current 10-day deal, so Brown doesn't have a very good outlook next month. He's worth a look in deep leagues for a couple games, though. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:48 pm
    • Donatas Motiejunas scores 16 w/o Dwight
      Donatas Motiejunas started and had 16 points, five rebounds, a steals and two 3-pointers on 6-of-16 shooting in Wednesday's win over Dallas.

      Advice: Dwight Howard has edema in his right knee (fluid buildup) and could miss time, meaning that D-Mo, Josh Smith and Terrence Jones (he's back) should all be owned until we find out more details about Howard's return date. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:24 pm
    • Danilo Gallinari scores 11 in 20 minutes
      Danilo Gallinari scored 11 points in 20 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday with two rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He is coming around and this is the most minutes he's played since returning from his knee injury last week. Gallinari's minutes are unlikely to hit the 25-minute mark in the near future and he's a very risky player to own, so fantasy owners don't need to be too aggressive in grabbing him. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:44 pm
    • JaVale McGee gets a DNP-CD
      JaVale McGee did not play on Wednesday.

      Advice: He was active, but the Nuggets kept him out. McGee is expected to play on Thursday, but it's certainly not a lock. He can be left on the wire in most leagues. Additionally, Jusuf Nurkic shouldn't be affected. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:42 pm
    • Jodie Meeks scores 19 in loss to Sixers
      Jodie Meeks played 34 minutes off the bench and hit just 4-of-16 shots, but also hit 10-of-11 free throws to salvage a fantasy line, that included a 3-pointer.

      Advice: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope started, but hit just 2-of-9 shots for four points. Meeks could be a sneaky pick up with Brandon Jennings out for the foreseeable future, but we'd like him a lot more if he were starting over KCP. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:01 pm
    • D.J. Augustin disappears in bad loss to 76ers
      D.J. Augustin laid an egg on Wednesday, missing all seven of his shots and finishing with just two points, one rebound, four assists and two steals in 34 minutes.

      Advice: The good news is that he played so many minutes and Brandon Jennings isn't coming back anytime soon. Yes, this game was a total buzzkill for all of DJA's new owners, but he should bounce back in the next one. Don't cut him. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:56 pm
    • JaVale McGee is active on Wednesday
      JaVale McGee (leg) is active to face the Pelicans on Wednesday.

      Advice: This doesn't necessarily mean he's going to play tonight. McGee is expected to play tonight or Thursday, so fantasy owners should exercise some caution here. He won't play big minutes regardless, so leave him on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:56 pm
    • JaVale McGee (leg) targeting Wednesday
      JaVale McGee (leg) will return either Wednesday night vs. the Pelicans, or thursday night vs. the Grizzlies.

      Advice: Considering that he has missed 23 straight games, the Nuggets will likely bring him along very slowly so there is no need to consider adding him in most leagues. Owners in deep leagues should use a wait-and-see approach here unless they are desperate for blocks. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:39 am
    • Minnesota have signed Lorenzo Brown
      Minnesota has signed guard Lorenzo Brown to a 10-day contract on Wednesday, and he is expected to be available to play against the Celtics.

      Advice: The uncertainty surrounding Ricky Rubio's (ankle) return and the latest injury to Mo Williams (hip) may have forced their hand, so Brown may end up seeing some action right out of the gate. There's no need to consider an add outside of ridiculously deep leagues just yet, but we will let you know if he pops up on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:43 am
    • D.J. Augustin stays hot with 19 points
      D.J. Augustin had another solid game as the starting point guard for Detroit on Tuesday, scoring 19 points with nine assists, four boards, two steals and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

      Advice: He is coming off a career-high 35-point game on Sunday, so it looks like it's safe to assume that he will be a must-own player for the rest of the season. Even if the Pistons bring in a third point guard, Augustin will likely have no serious competition for the starting job and should maintain value as the season progresses. Congrats are in order if you were able to pluck him off the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:23 pm
    • Jared Dudley starts 2nd half w/ Ilyasova out
      Jared Dudley started the second half of Tuesday's game with Ersan Ilyasova (groin) unavailable, notching 11 points, one 3-pointer, two boards and three assists in 23 minutes.

      Advice: Dudley has been a sneaky value this season despite playing just 25 minutes, with his stats buoyed by solid percentages, 1.0 triples, 4.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game. He's worth owning, especially since Ilyasova is likely to miss more games with his groin injury. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:09 pm
    • Timberwolves set to sign Lorenzo Brown
      The Minnesota Timberwolves are close to signing Lorenzo Brown to a 10-day contract, according to Keith Langlois of Pistons.com.

      Advice: The Timberwolves originally drafted Brown and are close to brining the 24-year-old back into the fold. Brown has yet to play above the D-League this season, so he can be left on waiver wires as he won't provide much fantasy value as a bench player. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:27 am
    • Danilo Gallinari logs 15 minutes in defeat
      Danilo Gallinari had seven points in 15 minutes off the bench vs. Washington, while chipping in one 3-pointer, one rebound and two assists.

      Advice: It's nice to see Gallo healthy and productive, but he has a long way to go before regaining the trust of fantasy owners. Leave him on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 7:59 pm
    • Tiago Splitter shifts to bench on Sunday
      Tiago Splitter shifted to the bench for Sunday's game against the Bucks, scoring eight points with two boards, two assists and one steal in 17 minutes.

      Advice: Matt Bonner drew the start on Sunday, but this isn't the first time coach Gregg Popovich decided to alter his lineup. Given the constant uncertainty at the center position in San Antonio, neither player is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 7:32 pm
    • Matt Bonner plays just 16 minutes on Sunday
      Matt Bonner replaced Tiago Splitter in the starting lineup on Sunday vs. the Bucks, but played just 16 minutes and finished with five points, one board, one assist and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: The lineup change isn't permanent by any means, and it's well known that coach Gregg Popovich constantly tweaks his rotations depending on the matchup. Even if Bonner remains in the starting unit for another game or two, it's obvious that he is not a reliable asset in almost any league. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 7:25 pm
    • Kyle Singler shoots just 1-of-3 vs. Toronto
      Kyle Singler took only three shots in 26 minutes on Sunday, making one of them to finish a loss to the Raptors with four points, two rebounds and two assists.

      Advice: Singler hasn't been worth owning in 14-team leagues this season and he'll now have an adjustment period with D.J. Augustin taking the reins of Detroit's offense. There's not enough upside here to bother with him outside of deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 7:21 pm
    • D.J. Augustin explodes for career-high 35 pts
      D.J. Augustin exploded for a career-high 35 points while taking over the Pistons' starting PG job on Sunday, hitting 12-of-20 shots with five 3-pointers, four boards and eight assists.

      Advice: Congratulations to all those owners who snagged Augustin off the waiver wire following Brandon Jennings' Achilles injury. Augustin also was 6-of-6 at the FT line with only two turnovers in 37 minutes and this may stand as his best line all season, but he's locked into a huge role with Jennings done for the year. Detroit plays three times next week, which is good enough to start Augustin in all formats. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 7:09 pm
    • John Henson injures ankle on Sunday vs. Spurs
      John Henson (ankle) left Sunday's game against the Spurs and did not return, finishing with four points, nine boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 17 minutes.

      Advice: The good news is that coach Jason Kidd said that Henson could have returned if he needed him too, so the injury is probably very minor. Henson's only averaging 15.6 minutes per game this season, but he has given the Bucks a solid rim protector in the absence of Larry Sanders. If Henson does end up missing time, Zaza Pachulia will have to play even more minutes with veteran Kenyon Martin getting into the mix as well. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 6:28 pm
    • John Henson leaves game with ankle injury
      John Henson left Sunday's game against the Spurs with an ankle injury and is questionable to return.

      Advice: The Bucks are already pretty thin in their frontcourt thanks to Larry Sanders, so hopefully it's not too serious. We will update Henson's status as soon as we know more, and we would expect Zaza Pachulia to play all the minutes he could handle if Henson were to miss any time. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 5:58 pm
    • D.J. Augustin starting Sunday vs. Toronto
      D.J. Augustin will start at point guard for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

      Advice: The Pistons are looking at adding a third point guard, but Augustin is going to have essentially zero competition for playing time with Brandon Jennings (Achilles) going down for the rest of the season. Augustin needs to be picked up in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 2:43 pm
    • Report: DET likely to call up Lorenzo Brown
      Detroit is reportedly strongly considering calling up Lorenzo Brown from their D-League affiliate.

      Advice: Brown would be fighting for reserve minutes with Spencer Dinwiddie, so he'd be unlikely to get enough playing time to matter in most leagues. Until he actually signs a contract, Brown can remain on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 12:05 pm
    • D.J. Augustin set to become starting PG
      With news coming out that Brandon Jennings will miss the remainder of the season with an Achilles injury, D.J. Augustin is set to become the starting point guard in Detroit.

      Advice: Augustin is averaging 13.3 points, 6.3 assists, 1.3 three-pointers, and 3.3 turnovers through three games as a starter for Detroit. Make sure he's not sitting on your waiver wire, as he has now officially become a must-own player in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 11:59 am
    • Thomas Robinson back to a reserve role
      Thomas Robinson moved back to the bench on Saturday against the Wizards with two points and four boards.

      Advice: With LaMarcus Aldridge back, Robinson's playing time is going to be sporadic. He does have some nice impact on the offensive glass, but there's no need to grab him in almost any fantasy league while LMA is on the active list. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 24, 10:00 pm
    • Jodie Meeks could play a little more now
      Jodie Meeks plays 15 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday with four points, one rebound and one steal.

      Advice: The Pistons do use a lineup of D.J. Augustin with Brandon Jennings on occasion, so there are a handful of minutes available now that all of DJA's minutes will be at point guard. Meeks hasn't hit his stride yet, but the upside for steals and dimes makes him worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 24, 7:26 pm
    • DJ Augustin set for major increase in minutes
      D.J. Augustin played 15 minutes on Saturday against the Bucks with two points and two steals.

      Advice: Despite the awful game, Augustin is set for a significant bump on playing time. Brandon Jennings (leg) is possibly out for the season, so expect DJA to play close to 30-35 minutes. He can add some steals, dimes and triples, which makes him some worth grabbing in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 24, 7:18 pm
    • Cody Zeller plays 32 minutes
      Cody Zeller played 32 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday with eight points, eight rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks.

      Advice: With Bismack Biyombo (knee) and Marvin Williams (head) hurt, Zeller is going to get more minutes. He isn't much of a stat-filler because he's not really involved in the offense while he's with the first unit. Unless he was already on the short list of players you were considering, his outlook shouldn't change too much with the injuries. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyle Singler will play with a mask
      Kyle Singler will play with a mask against the Bucks on Saturday.

      Advice: He had a procedure on Friday and should be ready to go. Singler broke his nose and it shouldn't affect his playing time. He's a low-ceiling option in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • JaVale McGee (leg) out for a few games
      JaVale McGee (leg) is improving, but is still expected to miss a few more games.

      Advice: He's not going to play against the Wizards on Sunday. McGee's leg fracture just has not fully recovered and the Nuggets won't be playing him big minutes even once he's healthy. Fantasy owners can ignore him in most cases. Meanwhile, Jusuf Nurkic has been a letdown, but is still worth owning. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari returns to action on Friday
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) returned to action on Friday, logging 17 minutes with four points on 1-of-7 shooting and that's it.

      Advice: Gallo might benefit from a trade sending Wilson Chandler out of Denver but there is way too much uncertainty about his ability to produce to stash him in most standard formats. Rotoworld.com

    • Donatas Motiejunas scores 15 points
      Donatas Motiejunas scored 15 points with six rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 23 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

      Advice: He shifted to the center spot with Dwight Howard (ankle) out and that'll continue. If Howard misses time, that should help D-Mo's numbers overall. He is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • JaVale McGee (leg) in uniform, won't play
      JaVale McGee (leg) will suit up on Friday, but he will not play vs. the Cetlics.

      Advice: McGee has been a constant disappointment for the last couple of years, and there's not much reason to own him in most leagues due to his constant injury risk and limited upside. Rotoworld.com

    • JaVale McGee won't play on Friday night
      JaVale McGee (leg) will not play against the Celtics on Friday.

      Advice: He was questionable and there is still no firm timetable for his return, but it should be soon. McGee is not worth stashing in most leagues because he won't play a lot anyway. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyle Singler iffy for Saturday w/ broken nose
      Kyle Singler (nasal fracture) is questionable for Saturday's game in Milwaukee

      Advice: Singler was injured on Wednesday, when he scored 14 points in 22 minutes vs. the Magic. He continues to hold down a starting job but hasn't done much to help fantasy owners, averaging 7.4 points on 42.0 percent shooting, so there's no incentive to gamble on him while his status is in doubt.

    • Truck Stick? Thomas Robinson plays 28 minutes
      Thomas Robinson started and played 28 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday with nine points, 12 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

      Advice: The Blazers were forced to play Dorell Wright and Victor Claver at small forward due to the loss of Nicolas Batum, so that might actually open up some minutes for Robinson at the four. That said, coach Terry Stotts used a whopping 12 different five-man lineups in just the second half tonight and ran an 11-man rotation, so we're still not too bullish on adding Truck in standard leagues, especially since he can't make free throws.

    • Jared Dudley turns it around vs. Jazz
      Jared Dudley scored 16 points with four rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

      Advice: He had a grand total of just two points combined in his last two games. Dudley has really cooled off since a somewhat hot start and he'll continue to be an inconsistent player. He'll likely be a top 120-150 guy the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com

    • Thomas Robinson starting on Thursday
      Thomas Robinson will start against the Celtics on Thursday.

      Advice: There is no such thing as a surprise Terry Stotts starting lineup. Robinson still is a little rough around the edges, but he could be a double-double guy with extra minutes. That said, the messy rotations are something most fantasy owners aren't going to want to deal with. Rotoworld.com

    • JaVale McGee (leg) is questionable Friday
      JaVale McGee (leg) practiced in full on Thursday, and is now considered questionable for Friday's game against Boston.

      Advice: We still doubt that he ends up playing against the Celtics, but it is good to see him finally closing in on a return. McGee will likely be eased into action once he does suit up, so there is no need to take a flier on him outside of ridiculously deep leagues at the moment. We will pass along further updates as needed. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari available for Fri vs Celtics
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) will be available for Friday's game against the Celtics.

      Advice: Gallo last played on December 20 before suffering a torn meniscus and will likely be eased back into action on Friday. The 26-year-old has only played 24 games over the past two seasons and will be limited to a bench role behind Wilson Chandler, so fantasy owners can feel free to leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Corey Brewer racks up 20 in garbage time
      Corey Brewer hit 6-of-13 shots and two 3-pointers for 20 points, six rebounds, three assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Warriors.

      Advice: This was a garbage-time special and he was helped by Josh Smith's early ejection. Make no mistake, Brewer was a big part of a somewhat impressive comeback waged by the Rockets, but they were never in the game and it truly was a meaningless stat line. Don't take the bait and think this will become a regular occurrence. Rotoworld.com

    • Donatas Motiejunas disappears in loss
      Donatas Motiejunas hit just 2-of-8 shots for four points, three rebounds and two assists in Wednesday's loss to the Warriors.

      Advice: That snapped a 12-game streak of double-digit scoring for D-Mo and he's been rebounding the ball well. He's still averaging 13.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals in January, and the Rockets just didn't have it going against the Dubs tonight. And once Terrence Jones finally returns, things could get a little dicey in regards to Motiejunas. Rotoworld.com
