    • Furkan Aldemir (heel) is out on Sunday
      Furkan Aldemir (heel) is out for Sunday's game against the Magic.

      Advice: He is dealing with plantar fasciitis so it wouldn't be surprising to see him miss additional time. Aldemir is far off of the fantasy radar in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Hollis Thompson (illness) questionable Sunday
      Hollis Thompson (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

      Advice: He was unable to participate in the morning shootaround, and we should know more about his status closer to tip-off. If Thompson were to sit this one out, rookie K.J. McDaniels could be unleashed and would make for an excellent daily plug-and-play option. Rotoworld.com

    • Jae Crowder to be available to play Sunday
      Jae Crowder will be available to play on Sunday vs. the Heat.

      Advice: The Celtics were reportedly adamant that he would have to be part of the Rajon Rondo deal, so Crowder could eventually have a sizeable role in the rotation. However, unless Jeff Green is also traded in the near future, Crowder won't see a large enough role to matter in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Martell Webster (back) could play on Sunday
      Martell Webster (back) could return to action as soon as Sunday against the Suns.

      Advice: He has yet to play this season after coming off of his third back surgery in his career, so it will be great to see back out on the floor. He was seen getting up shots at practice on Saturday for a couple of hours, and he is reportedly feeling good. If he doesn't make his season debut Sunday, his next chance to play would be on Tuesday vs. the Bulls. However, Webster will likely be eased back into the rotation, and he won't see a lot of minutes while Paul Pierce and Otto Porter are healthy. Webster can be ignored in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Barnes lays a goose egg
      Matt Barnes did not score against the Bucks on Saturday with five rebounds and four assists.

      Advice: He had 16 points on Friday and went the other way tonight. Barnes was putting up No. 65 fantasy value over the past two weeks, so there is enough upside to cut him some slack unless it's to grab a hot free agent. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:37 pm
    • Larry Sanders scores 10 points in start
      Larry Sanders scored 10 points against the Clippers on Saturday with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 26 minutes.

      Advice: He did commit his usual five fouls, but did make 5-of-6 from the field. Sanders made 76.2 percent from the field over his last four with averages of 8.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 0.8 blocks. If you really need blocks, give him a look. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:30 pm
    • Johnny O'Bryant plays six minutes
      Johnny O'Bryant played six minutes on Saturday with four points.

      Advice: He picked up two quick fouls and that was that. O'Bryant was able to push guys around at summer league, but that doesn't work against Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. He can be cut in extremely deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:23 pm
    • Khris Middleton has well-rounded game
      Khris Middleton played 24 minutes off the bench for 12 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: It was a big step up from his one-point stinker on Thursday and Middleton has fared well in three of his last four. He really doesn't do much outside of score while making only 43.0 percent from the field with 1.3 steals, so his ceiling isn't high enough to grab in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:19 pm
    • Jared Dudley scores 16 points vs. Clippers
      Jared Dudley excelled against his former team on Saturday with 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

      Advice: That's back-to-back good games from Dudley and he's passed Khris Middleton as the waiver-wire add du jour. Dudley's done a fair amount of ball handling to go with his perimeter shooting, so there is enough upside to at least give him a look. That said, trusting coach Jason Kidd's rotation is like trusting a dingo to look after your baby. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari plays 28 minutes, scores 19
      Danilo Gallinari scored a season-high 19 points against the Pacers during a 76-93 win on Saturday with three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: It's the most minutes he's played all month and it crushed his previous monthly average of 17.1 minutes. Gallinari has been shut down due to knee soreness before and that concern will always be hanging over his fantasy value. Unless you're going to cut something you're not going to terribly miss, it's tough to add the Rooster. Rotoworld.com

    • Greg Smith backing up Ty Chandler now
      Greg Smith played 10 minutes off the bench on Saturday with one point and one board.

      Advice: Yes, this is meaningless for just about everyone who plays fantasy basketball, but he is Tyson Chandler's backup now. Chandler does have a lot of injuries in his past so many Smith makes his way onto the fantasy radar at some point. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist double-doubles in win
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist double-doubled in a win over the Jazz on Saturday, finishing with 13 points, 11 boards, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He was fantastic all game long and was an absolute pest on the defensive end. MKG shot 4-of-8 from the field on Saturday, and has shown a lot of growth in his shooting technique. The minutes are going to be there for him from here on out, and it's time for standard league owners to take notice. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 6:53 pm
    • Martell Webster still on schedule for return
      Martell Webster (back) is on schedule to return to action this month.

      Advice: He is going to have a minutes limit when he is able to play. Webster is a tremendous fit for the Wizards and he flourished last season while Bradley Beal was out. He'll have to fend off Rasual Butler for playing time, so most owners can take a wait-and-see approach. Rotoworld.com

    • Landry Fields practices, cleared of concussion
      Landry Fields was cleared for a concussion and was at practice on Saturday.

      Advice: He needed stitches to his head from Friday and it appears he will be fine. Fields plays about 20 minutes per night and only has value in extremely deep leagues. James Johnson doesn't get a bump in fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

    • Larry Sanders will return for Saturday's game
      Larry Sanders will return from his one-game suspension on Saturday vs. the Clippers.

      Advice: He was suspended for Thursday's game against the kings for pushing Nicolas Batum in the back, but the Bucks will be glad to have him back in time to play against DeAndre Jordan. However, Sanders has been very inconsistent this season with averages of 7.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game, so owners may want to bench him until he turns it around. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 8:14 am
    • Barnes gets back on track in loss to Denver
      Matt Barnes bounced back from an off-night to score 16 points on 8-of-10 shooting (no threes) with four rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 35 minutes on Friday against the Nuggets.

      Advice: Barnes has been a solid mid-round value lately and he should remain in all lineups. J.J. Redick scored just eight points with one trey, two boards and two assists, but he has been serviceable lately and owners might want to give him at least one night of slack. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:18 pm
    • End of the road for Kris Humphries?
      Kris Humphries saw just 13 minutes in Friday's win over the Heat, scoring four points on 2-of-7 shooting with two rebounds and one assist.

      Advice: Nene played 26 minutes off the bench and scored 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting, so perhaps he's healthy and ready to knock Humphries to the wire. With little upside to speak of, Humphries' owners shouldn't be afraid to move on. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:32 pm
    • Varejao plays just 17 minutes on Friday
      Anderson Varejao played just 17 minutes in Friday's win, scoring seven points on 1-of-4 shooting with five rebounds and one block.

      Advice: Varejao has been ice-cold lately and though he's returning late-round value on the season, with limited upside as well as durability issues owners shouldn't be attached to him in 12-team formats. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:45 pm
    • Landry Fields gets stitches, out for game
      Landry Fields received stitches to his head on Friday and will not return.

      Advice: He had a scary fall and might have suffered a concussion. Fields was in the starting lineup for the Raptors, so they might need to mix it up. James Johnson replaced Fields at the time of the injury and would make the most sense. He's worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Furkan Aldemir won't plan Friday
      Furkan Aldemir (heel) will not play against the Hornets on Friday.

      Advice: He has an Achilles issue and the 76ers could sit him down in hopes this doesn't linger. Aldemir is a major project and is going take a while before he's on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com

    • Jae Crowder inactive for Friday's game
      Jae Crowder will be inactive for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

      Advice: He wouldn't play much even if he was available, and he can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues. However, with the Celtics obviously going into a full rebuild, Crowder's name will be one to watch if Jeff Green is traded at some point this season. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:43 am
    • Khris Middleton scores one point
      Khris Middleton was a no-show against the Kings on Thursday with one point, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one foul in 18 minutes.

      Advice: That's good for a 10.3 usage rate, which shattered his previous season low of 14.2. Middleton usually gets to shoot while he's on the court, but it just wasn't in the cards tonight. Coach Jason Kidd is going to yo-yo his minutes, so his owners should not be expecting him to be the next Robert Covington or anything. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 10:31 pm
    • Jared Dudley scores season-high 19 points
      Jared Dudley scored a season-high 19 points against the Kings on Thursday with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He had season highs in field goal attempts and free throw attempts in what was obviously his best game. Dudley has barely been shooting the rock while he's been out there and only had 0.8 triples per game in his previous eight games this month. This rotation is going to be a mess, so he's not a standard league target based on this game alone. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 10:26 pm
    • Johnny O'Bryant plays 17 minutes
      Johnny O'Bryant played 17 minutes in his first NBA start on Thursday with six points, one rebound and one assist against the Kings.

      Advice: He had four fouls and had several "Welcome to the NBA" moments tonight. O'Bryant is a banger and doesn't have much polish to his game, but the Bucks need someone like that right now. His minutes might climb into the 20s while Ersan Ilyasova (face) is out. He's not worth owning in almost any league, though. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 10:12 pm
    • Johnny O'Bryant getting the start vs. Kings
      Johnny O'Bryant will start at power forward against the Kings.

      Advice: He made his NBA debut on Wednesday and he already making his first start. The Bucks are completely gutted up front and have nobody behind O'Bryant and Zaza Pachulia, so he could get big minutes. Of course, he's only worth a look in very deep leagues. O'Bryant joins Brandon Knight, O.J. Mayo, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Pachulia in the starting unit. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 6:01 pm
    • Jae Crowder sent to Boston in Rondo deal
      Joe Crowder will be sent to Boston as part of the Rajon Rondo deal.

      Advice: He's going to fight for reserve minutes with Evan Turner, and the trade to Boston doesn't do much for his value. Unless Jeff Green is traded, he won't be worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 3:13 pm
    • Larry Sanders (suspension) out Thursday
      Larry Sanders has been suspended for Thursday's game against Sacramento for pushing Nicolas Batum in the back as he elevated towards the basket.

      Advice: That means that Zaza Pachulia is going to get all the run he can handle with Sanders, John Henson (foot), and Ersan Ilyasova (nose) unavailable, and he makes for a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Johnny O'Bryant may see some extended minutes off the bench, but he's still working himself into basketball shape, so Zaza is the guy to target here. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 1:14 pm
    • Furkan Aldemir doubtful for Friday
      Furkan Aldemir (heel) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Hornets.

      Advice: Aldemir missed practice due to the plantar fasciitis he's dealing with on his right foot, and while head coach Brett Brown contends, "it's not as bad as it sounds," Aldemir is not looking likely for Friday's game against Charlotte. He played just 10 minutes in his NBA debut on Monday, so he can safely be left on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari has a great game vs. HOU
      Danilo Gallinari returned from a three-game absence on Wednesday during a loss to the Rockets, playing 26 minutes with 16 points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

      Advice: It was one of his best showings of the season and he shot the ball with a lot of confidence. Gallinari's knee has flared up on him multiple times and he was only playing 13.8 minutes per game in his four games before the rest, so fantasy owners in standard leagues shouldn't consider him "back" yet. Plus, he's not looking to shoot nearly as much as he has in his career. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Barnes disappears in win over Pacers
      Matt Barnes hit just 1-of-3 shots for three points, two rebounds, four assists and a block in 31 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: He came in sort of hot, but never got it going tonight. He's been playing much better over the last two weeks, so we fully expect him to bounce back in his next game. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:49 pm
    • Larry Sanders plays 21 minutes
      Larry Sanders played 21 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday with nine points, four rebounds and one steal.

      Advice: He is not getting minutes at power forward, so he's not going to benefit from the injury to Jabari Parker (knee). Before tonight, Sanders has actually played just 67 minutes this season without Jabari next to him, so tonight foreign territory to a small degree. He's an inconsistent player and that's not going to change. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:12 pm
    • Khris Middleton drops 17 points in 33 minutes
      Khris Middleton scored 17 points in 33 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday with three rebounds, three steals and four 3-pointers.

      Advice: He started the second half with Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) going down in the second quarter. Middleton is certainly going to benefit with the injury to Jabari Parker (knee) and does have a usage rate of 20, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. His prospective owners just need to remember that coach Jason Kidd runs some wild rotation and Antetokounmpo's injury is not serious. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:59 pm
    • Johnny O'Bryant makes his debut
      Johnny O'Bryant played five minutes in his NBA debut with two points on Wednesday.

      Advice: The good news is he's made 100 percent from the field, but the bad news is he has 9.6 fouls per 48 minutes. O'Bryant has no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:54 pm
    • Jared Dudley scores three points in start
      Jared Dudley scored three points in 27 minutes during a start against the Blazers on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, five assists and one steal.

      Advice: He committed four fouls and wasn't as involved in the offense nearly as much. Dudley's usage rate is extremely low, so he's not going to be asked to score much. His assists are fairly high for a guy with his role, but it's still not enough to move the needle enough to grab him in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:51 pm
    • Jared Dudley starting in place of Parker
      Jared Dudley will start in place of Jabari Parker on Wednesday.

      Advice: He replaced Jabari when the injury happened, so this move is not a surprise. Dudley also played 20 minutes in the second half on Monday, so he should see a nice increase in playing time. He's worth a look in standard leagues, but there's no need to be too aggressive. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 5:38 pm
    • Furkan Aldemir seen icing his ankle Wednesday
      Furkan Aldemir suffered a bruised right heel and missed part of practice on Wednesday.

      Advice: There is no indication that he will miss any time, but we will still monitor his status closely. Aldemir made his NBA debut on Monday, but saw just 10 minutes of action and looked very raw. You can leave him on the waiver wire in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari (knee) will play Wednesday
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) will play on Wednesday vs. Houston.

      Advice: The Italian has been a ghost of the player he used to be this season, and has really struggled with his knee. Wilson Chandler is locked in as the starting small forward for the Nuggets, and unless he is traded there is not a lot of playing time available. Until Gallinari strings together a few good games and stays active, he won't be worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Kris Humphries plays well in win over MIN
      Kris Humphries bounced back from a two-point, four-rebound game on Sunday with six points, 10 rebounds and two blocks in 27 minutes on Tuesday.

      Advice: Nene is back, but Humps is still starting and should be owned in most leagues as long as that's the case. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari (knee) will play Wednesday
      Updating a previous report, Danilo Gallinari (knee) will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game vs. Houston.

      Advice: Gallinari is having a very disappointing season with averages of 6.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.0 three-pointer per game. He can remain on the waiver wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 1:26 pm
    • Danilo Gallinari (knee) returns to practice
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) returned to practice on Tuesday.

      Advice: He may be able to suit up for Wednesday's game vs. Houston, but has been far too inconsistent this season to warrant an add in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Matt Barnes scored 10 points on 3-of-7 shooting (including three triples) with two rebounds, three assists and one steal over 24 minutes in Monday's blowout win over the Pistons.

      Advice: Barnes is on a roll with top-50 value over the last two weeks, averaging 14.5 points with 2.2 treys, 1.7 combined steals and blocks, 53.2 percent field goal shooting and 88.9 percent shooting from the line. Pick him up in all standard formats and hope he doesn't faceplant. Rotoworld.com

    • Recording: Larry Sanders gets in foul trouble
      Larry Sanders was in foul trouble as per usual on Monday against the Suns, playing just 13 minutes with no points, one rebound and one steal.

      Advice: He had a nice game on Saturday, but inconsistency is Larry Sanders' middle name. His averages weren't too bad before tonight with 7.5 points, 6.3 boards, 1.6 blocks and 1.0 steals, so there is some promise here. Sanders doesn't play power forward, so don't expect him to gain value. If the inconsistent nights are too much for you, there's no need to be too attached to him. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Dudley plays 31 minutes as fill in
      Jared Dudley replaced Jabari Parker (knee) after his knee injury on Monday, finishing with 10 points, two rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: Coach Jason Kidd hasn't been playing Dudley too much with just 18.9 minutes per game on the season, but it's fair to think he'll get his playing time to around 26-28 minutes per game. He'll have a chance to make 1.5 treys per game, which puts him on the radar in standard leagues. Unless you hate the guy on the end of your bench, it's probably better to wait and see how things go on Wednesday against the Blazers. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 10:39 pm
    • Khris Middleton hits game-winner vs. Suns
      Khris Middleton hit a game-winning 3-pointer at the buzzer to beat the Suns on Monday, finishing with 14 points, one rebound, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: He did play some power forward tonight and the Bucks look like they're going to need to replace a ton of minutes with Jabari Parker (knee) going down. Middleton will likely have a handful of bad games and coach Jason Kidd's rotation is unpredictable, so he's only an add in deeper leagues for now. Rotoworld.com

      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will start against the Cavs on Monday.

      Advice: He gets the fun task of guarding LeBron James tonight. Kidd-Gilchrist was coming on with some decent defense and rebounding, but a lack of offense is going to limit his upside. He's worth a look in 14- and 16-team leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Is Aldemir going to get minutes?
      Furkan Aldemir is officially active on Monday against the Celtics.

      Advice: "Welcome to Philly. You've got Sullinger,"coach Brett Brown said. It's an interesting quote from Brown and perhaps he's going to get in the rotation.

    • Kris Humphries quiet in Sunday's win vs. Utah
      Kris Humphries scored two points on 1-of-4 shooting vs. the Jazz on Sunday, adding four rebounds, one assist and one block.

      Advice: He logged 26 minutes and continues to start ahead of Nene (10 points, six boards in 23 minutes). Fantasy owners should stick with him a while longer in case coach Randy Wittman opts for Humphries as his full-time starter. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: If he was coming to any other team, he would not be on the fantasy map at all. However, this is the 76ers we are talking about and it wouldn't be out of the question if he became a part of the rotation at some point this season. However, Aldemir's game is limited and owners in standard leagues can monitor him comfortably from the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Barnes fined $25,000 in Friday's loss
      Matt Barnes was fined $25,000 in Friday's loss to the Wizards after he kicked a water bottle into the stands and used profane language to the fans.

      Advice: This has become very typical for Barnes, as he loves playing the villain role in the NBA. If anything, this incident must have a lit a fire under him considering he responded with his best game of the season on Saturday, scoring a season-high 26 points with one board, two steals, one block and six 3-pointers. If you are in need of a player, Barnes is worth a look as long as he continues to start for the Clippers. Rotoworld.com

    • Hollis Thompson scores 21 points in 31 mins
      Holls Thompson scored 21 points on 7-of-8 from the field in 41 minutes on Saturday with four rebounds, three steals and five 3-pointers.

      Advice: That's good for an effective field goal percentage of 118.8. Thompson has been fairly quiet this season and has given up some minutes to rookie K.J. McDaniels (ankle), but made the most of his playing time tonight. McDaniels won't be out long, so Thompson isn't a great pickup. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist plays well on Saturday
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist played well off of the bench on Saturday, finishing with 15 points, five boards, one assist and one steal in 28 minutes.

      Advice: He did shoot just 5-of-13 from the field, but you should know by now that shooting isn't really his thing. He was one of the few Hornets players to show a lot of energy on both ends of the floor, and it shouldn't be long before he replaces Gerald Henderson in the starting lineup. As long as MKG is healthy, he is worth a look in deeper leagues for his ability to rebound and provide hustle stats. Rotoworld.com

    • Larry Sanders has a nice outing on Saturday
      Larry Sanders had 15 points, nine rebounds and two blocks in 28 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

      Advice: He continues to be on a roller coaster following his six-point, 13-minute game on Tuesday. Sanders does have some upside, but he's not a must-own player just because he's bound for an awful game sooner rather than later. Rotoworld.com

    • Khris Middleton scores 14 points vs. Clips
      Khris Middleton scored 14 points with six rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

      Advice: In coach Jason Kidd's rotation, there is going to be a random guy going off almost every night. Middleton scored just nine points combined in his previous two, so you can leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Matt Barnes scores season-high 26 points
      Matt Barnes had his best game of the season on Saturday, scoring a season-high 26 points with one rebound, two steals, one block and six 3-pointers.

      Advice: He made 10-of-18 from the field and is starting to come on. Over his last five games, Barnes has averages of 14.0 points, 4.0 boards, 1.0 steals and 2.4 triples. Fantasy owners in standard leagues could use those numbers and he was a top-40 guy after the break last year, so there is some incentive to picking him up. Rotoworld.com

    • Johnny O'Bryant is available on Saturday
      Johnny O'Bryant is available to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

      Advice: He is expected to be limited and is not a lock for playing time. O'Bryant has no fantasy value right now. Rotoworld.com

    • Johnny O'Bryant (knee) questionable Saturday
      Johnny O'Bryant (knee) is considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

      Advice: He likely won't be in the rotation upon his return and would need an injury to Zaza Pachulia or Larry Sanders before owners in deep leagues should pay him any attention. Leave him on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari (knee) doubtful for Saturday
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

      Advice: We would be surprised if he played considering his knee has been a nuisance all season. Gallinari has yet to perform up to his usual standards and we don't see him becoming relevant in standard leagues this season given how well Wilson Chandler has played. Rotoworld.com

    • MKG plays 19 minutes against Memphis
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist came off the bench against the Grizzlies on Friday with eight points five boards and one block in 19 minutes.

      Advice: He's going to come off the bench again on Saturday and he looked a bit out of shape tonight. Kidd-Gilchrist's couldn't get a lot of conditioning in while his foot was healing, so it could be a while before he's making an major impact. He can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Kris Humphries puts up another nice game
      Kris Humphries had a nice outing in 27 minutes against the Clippers on Friday with 11 points, eight rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block.

      Advice: Nene played 23 minutes off the bench, scoring nine points with five rebounds, two assists and two steals. The Wizards were great in the paint and kept the Clippers to just 24 points in that area of the court. Humphries looks like he's stick in the starting lineup for now, so he's worth owning in 14-team leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Landry Fields is starting again on Friday
      Landry Fields is starting again on Friday night against the Pacers.

      Advice: Well, it wasn't a matchup against LeBron James on Tuesday after all because the Pacers do not have a big group of starters. Fields is still not going to be worth owning in standard leagues and he probably won't stick in the starting lineup much longer. Greivis Vasquez will come off the bench again. Rotoworld.com

    • Johnny O'Bryant does more work at practice
      Johnny O'Bryant (knee) did some more work at practice on Friday.

      Advice: He doesn't have a timetable to return and is up in the air for Saturday. The Bucks need a big man behind Larry Sanders and Zaza Pachulia, so O'Bryant has an outside shot at playing time. Of course, he's not worth owning in any league. Rotoworld.com

    • Shaw explains why Gallinari's PT is down
      Nuggets' head coach Brian Shaw explained during a recent interview why Danilo Gallinari's playing time has been down this season.

      Advice: "[Gallinari] understands that if Wilson [Chandler] wasn't playing as well as he is playing at that position, then maybe I'd let him out there and try to play through it a little bit more," said Shaw. "But Wilson is playing well, and he's not, so that's why Wilson is out there." Gallinari's numbers are way down this season, and he's shooting a career-worst 32.8 percent from the field. He's not going to get things turned around anytime soon, and belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Gallinari (knee) will miss next couple games
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) estimated that he'll miss the next couple of games in order to rest and heal his surgically-repaired left knee.

      Advice: Gallinari has been a shell of his former self this season, putting up his worst numbers since his rookie year with averages of 6.7 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.0 three-pointer per game. His knee is going to be an ongoing issue, and given his limited upside, he can be cut in nearly all leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Johnny O'Bryant (knee) returns to practice
      Johnny O'Bryant (knee) returned to practice on Thursday, and is nearing a return.

      Advice: O'Bryant isn't likely to be a key rotation player for the Bucks, and he can be left on the wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Martell Webster practices in limited capacity
      Martell Webster (back) practiced on Thursday, but was unable to participate in full.

      Advice: Webster has been ramping up his rehab, but didn't participate in a full-court practice on Thursday so we're reading tea leaves as to when he'll return. Webster's eventual return will cut in the fantasy value of Paul Pierce, Rasual Butler and Otto Porter, but standard league owners can feel free to leave him on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari out until knee stops hurting
      Danilo Gallinari (knee) will sit out until his surgically-repaired knee stops hurting, according to head coach Brian Shaw.

      Advice: Gallinari has some soreness in his right now and will be listed as day-to-day until the pain dissipates. "The guy was out 19 months," Shaw said. "He's still experiencing a little bit of pain. He's not back to the level he wants to be at." Gallo has until Saturday's game against the Rockets to rest his ailing knee, but even that seems like a questionable proposition at the moment. Fantasy owners can feel free to cut bait until he proves that he's healthy. Rotoworld.com
