    • Carl Landry upgraded to questionable on Wed
      Carl Landry has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Raptors.

      Advice: He has been out since Jan. 13 nursing a sprained wrist, so even he does end up playing he probably won't see a lot of minutes. Landry has been solid off the bench for Sacramento, but until his role improves he will only be an option in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Danny Granger will start Tuesday vs. MIL
      Danny Granger is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks with Luol Deng (sore calf) unavailable.

      Advice: Granger doesn't have a favorable matchup tonight, and he has failed to do much in the past with the starting role. Through three starts this season Granger has averaged 4.7 points on 41.7 percent shooting, not great. James Ennis will likely see some extended minutes off the bench, but he too makes for a very risky option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 3:54 pm
    • Chris Andersen (elbow) out Tuesday vs. MIL
      Chris Andersen (elbow, back) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. Milwaukee.

      Advice: With Andersen unavailable, Hassan Whiteside will likely slide into the starting lineup and he'll make for a fantastic plug-and-play option in daily leagues coming off a monster triple-double on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    • Paul George (leg) still not taking contact
      Head coach Frank Vogel said that Paul George (leg) has increased his workload, but he's still being limited to non-contact work.

      Advice: George remains extremely unlikely to suit up this season, so he can remain on the waiver wire unless you're in a keeper league. We'll continue to provide updates on his progress, but there's been no indication that he will play this year. Rotoworld.com

    • Mirza Teletovic (blood clots) cannot fly
      Mirza Teletovic (blood clots in lungs) will need to be driven across the US back to Brooklyn after being discharged from an LA hospital, as it is too dangerous for him to fly.

      Advice: Teletovic is set to miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season, and we wish him the best in his recovery. It's not clear exactly how long Teletovic will be unable to fly, but if this is a long-term thing, it could put his career in jeopardy. Teletovic's reserve minutes will likely fall to guys like Cory Jefferson, Bojan Bogdanovic, and Brook Lopez. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: JaMychal Green will not be back w/ SA
      JaMychal Green and the Spurs reportedly could not reach an agreement on a second 10-day deal, and both sides will part ways when his contract expires.

      Advice: He's reportedly receiving interest from Memphis, New York, Chicago, Milwaukee, and Portland, but as an end-of-the-bench kind of guy, he's unlikely to be able to hold any fantasy value in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandan Wright (heel) expected to play Wed.
      Brandan Wright (heel) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, and he expects to return to action for Wednesday's game vs. the Wizards.

      Advice: Wright and Miles Plumlee are currently fighting for reserve minutes, and while Wright is seeing more playing time than Plumlee, both guys remain negligible options in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • UTA to give Chris Johnson 10-day contract
      The Jazz are reportedly set to offer Chris Johnson a 10-day contract.

      Advice: Johnson was waived by the 76ers earlier in the season after averaging 6.0 points and 2.9 rebounds on 31.7 percent shooting from the field. While the Jazz are in need of a swingman, Johnson is unlikely to offer much value in most leagues. Leave him on the wire for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Joel Freeland (shoulder) out on Wednesday
      Joel Freeland (shoulder) will not suit up for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavs, as expected.

      Advice: Freeland has been sidelined since Jan. 3, and he isn't even targeting a return until mid-February. With season averages of 3.5 points and 4.5 rebounds, Freeland can safely remain on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Tony Allen questionable for Tuesday
      Tony Allen (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game at Dallas.

      Advice: Allen, who was recently demoted to a bench role behind Jeff Green, is headed for a game-time call. We likely won't have his status until 7:30pm ET. Rotoworld.com

    • Earl Barron set to sign in China
      Earl Barron has signed a deal with Shanxi of the Chinese Basketball Association.

      Advice: Barron had been laying with the Bakersfield Jam of the D-League, but will now take his talents to Shanxi. He could join an NBA team after the Chinese season ends in February, but there's no reason for fantasy owners to monitor Barron's status going forward. Rotoworld.com

    • Chase Budinger due for minutes increase
      Chase Budinger and Glenn Robinson III are likely to see more playing time with Robbie Hummel (hand) out, according to Wolves head coach Flip Saunders.

      Advice: "We only have like 11 healthy guys," Saunders said. "Other guys will get opportunities." While both players will get a bump in playing time now that Hummel is due to miss at least the next four weeks, neither will provide much fantasy value outside of being a punt play for daily leaguers.

    • C.J. Miles will miss Tuesday's game vs TOR
      C.J. Miles (left groin strain) will miss Tuesday's game against the Raptors.

      Advice: Miles had put together a couple nice games, but will now miss his second consecutive game due to this groin strain. He's worth holding onto in deeper fantasy leagues, but standard league owners can likely find someone more dependable on the wire. Rodney Stuckey, C.J. Watson, and Damjan Rudez will likely pick up most of Miles' minutes against the Raptors on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Andersen may miss Bucks game on Tues
      Chris Andersen (elbow, back) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

      Advice: Andersen will be re-evaluated closer to Tuesday's 7:30 PM ET tip-off, but this shouldn't affect fantasy owners as the Birdman is only averaging 5.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks on the season. The biggest ripple effect to Andersen potentially sitting would be Hassan Whiteside potentially having another huge game as he'd see more minutes with Birdman out. Rotoworld.com

    • Hickson ineffective in 17 minutes vs. LAC
      J.J. Hickson logged just 17 minutes on Monday, putting up two points, five rebounds and two assists.

      Advice: Hickson wasn't very valuable in standard leagues when he was putting up double-doubles lately, so needless to say when things head south owners can cut bait real quick. Rotoworld.com

    • Ingles posts another versatile line
      Joe Ingles scored two points on 1-of-6 shooting with four rebounds, five assists and four steals over 31 minutes in Monday's loss to the Celtics.

      Advice: Ingles isn't going to score a lot but the other contributions are there for standard league owners. Give him a look. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:10 pm
    • Tony Allen (ankle) will not play on Monday
      Tony Allen (ankle) will not play against the Magic on Monday.

      Advice: He has a sprained ankle and it's not serious, but the Grizzlies don't need him as much now that Jeff Green is around. Expect Green and Courtney Lee to play a little more tonight. Additionally, Victor Oladipo has a better matchup. Rotoworld.com

    • Tony Allen questionable to suit up on Monday
      Tony Allen (sprained left ankle) is questionable to play against the Magic on Monday.

      Advice: He did not participate in shootaround, and that's always an ominous sign for a player's availability. That being said, TA is as tough as they come, so it has to be a pretty nasty sprain. If he sits, Courtney Lee and Jeff Green should each see some extra run. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandan Wright expected to be back Wednesday
      Brandan Wright (heel) is expected to be back on Wednesday.

      Advice: Wright's heel pain had been a lingering issue, but it sounds like the one-game absence, combined with the time in between appearances, is just what the big man needed to get back on track. Rotoworld.com

    • Rodney Stuckey hits 6-of-10 FGs for 15 points
      Rodney Stuckey started Sunday's game and scored 15 points with six assists and one steal, helping Indy hang on for a 106-99 win in Orlando.

      Advice: He made 6-of-10 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs with one 3-pointer to his credit, assuming a bigger role in the absence of C.J. Miles (groin). Miles is day-to-day and George Hill (groin) should play more minutes in the near future, so unfortunately Stuckey is hard to rely on in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandan Wright (heel) out Sunday vs. LAC
      Brandan Wright (sore left heel) will be inactive for Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.

      Advice: This injury is coming out of nowhere, however, considering he's simply dealing with a sore heel he shouldn't be sidelined for an extended amount of time. With Wright unavailable, look for Miles Plumlee to step back into the rotation as the first big off the bench. However, Plumlee is still stuck in a reserve role, so he's not a great play in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Miles (groin) out Sunday vs. Orlando
      C.J. Miles (left groin strain) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

      Advice: With Miles unavailable, Rodney Stuckey will likely slide back into the starting lineup. Stuckey is averaging 11.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 3.2 assists as a starter, and he figures to be a low-end option in daily leagues. C.J. Watson will also likely see some extended minutes.

    • Chris Andersen starting on Sunday vs. Bulls
      Chris Andersen will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Bulls.

      Advice: Hassan Whiteside just retuned from an ankle injury, so the Heat are probably just exercising caution by bringing him along slowly. Andersen still likely won't see more than 20 minutes of action, so unless you are desperate for blocks there is no need to hold onto him. Whiteside is still the center to own in Miami. Rotoworld.com

    • Joe Ingles scores career-high 16 points
      Joe Ingles scored a career-high 16 points against the Nets on Saturday with one rebound, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

      Advice: The 3-pointers were also a career high. Ingles has done most of his damage in dimes, steals and treys, so he's climbing into the top-140 player conversation. With Rodney Hood (foot) out for at least a few weeks and Alec Burks (shoulder) out for the year, Ingles is worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 9:12 pm
    • C.J. Miles (groin) doubtful for Sunday
      C.J. Miles (groin) is doubtful to play against the Magic on Sunday.

      Advice: He did not return from his injury on Friday and it would appear he'll miss a couple games. Miles just can't stay healthy this season and his fantasy owners can probably just find someone else at this point. Expect to see more of C.J. Watson and Rodney Stuckey. Damjan Rudez will also play more. Rotoworld.com

    • Hickson double-doubles with 15 & 14
      J.J. Hickson started the second half of Friday's game instead of Jusuf Nurkic, finishing with a double-double including 15 points and 14 rebounds in 29 minutes.

      Advice: Hickson added three assists and two steals but hit just 3-of-6 from the foul line. He's barely clinging to life in 12-team standard formats and JaVale McGee hasn't yet stepped on the floor, making him a stop-gap solution at best for owners needing a big man, regardless of whether he starts or not. Rotoworld.com

    • Andersen grabs season-high 13 rebounds
      Chris Andersen banged his left knee but stayed in the game and posted a season-high 13 rebounds to go with four points in 28 minutes on Friday against the Pacers.

      Advice: Andersen is almost always a sneaky low-end value in standard leagues when given 23 or more minutes. Give him a look if you need a big man. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:53 pm
    • C.J. Miles (groin) out for game vs. Heat
      C.J. Miles (left groin) will not return against the Heat on Friday.

      Advice: He has dealt with groin issues before and he's probably going to miss time. Chris Copeland and Damjan Rudez could get more minutes, but C.J. Watson and Rodney Stuckey may get some additional run. If you're sick of dealing with Miles, we don't blame you for dropping him. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Miles (groin) questionable to return
      C.J. Miles (groin) is questionable to return against the Heat on Friday.

      Advice: He just can't stay healthy. Whether it's a calf, an eye issue, or anything, Miles just seems to inexplicably miss games this season. Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Watson will get a few more minutes. Miles checked out after six minutes with eight points, one assist and one 3-pointer. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Miles starting, Rodney Stuckey to bench
      C.J. Miles will start in place of Rodney Stuckey on Friday night against the Heat.

      Advice: This move is likely to prepare for George Hill eventually moving into the starting lineup -- Hill is coming off the bench tonight. Miles is going to take a lot of 3-pointers in the first unit and he could have some other stats, but he's really not a reliable fantasy option with his woeful field goal shooting. If you need treys, he's worth a look. Rotoworld.com

      Carl Landry (wrist) will not play against the Warriors on Friday.

    • Mirza Teletovic (lungs) done for the season
      Mirza Teletovic will miss the rest of the season after being diagnosed with blood clots in his lungs.

      Advice: Teletovic pulled himself from Thursday's game due to shortness of breath and subsequent testing revealed that he's suffering from bilateral pulmonary embolus. He'll stay at a hospital in L.A. for further tests and to begin treatment, which includes blood-thinners, and will return to Brooklyn once doctors clear him to travel. His absence should lead to more playing time for backup forwards Cory Jefferson and Bojan Bogdanovic. Rotoworld.com

    • Mirza Teletovic (shortness of breath) is OK
      Mirza Teletovic tweeted that "now everything is ok" following Thursday's game.

      Advice: He had a shortness of breath on Thursday and had to go to the hospital. It's still unclear if he's going to miss time and the Nets will likely provide another update on Friday. Teletovic has cooled off and is not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Joe Ingles scores six with seven dimes
      Joe Ingles handed out a team-high seven assists against the Bucks on Thursday with six points, two steals and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

      Advice: Rodney Hood (foot) is out until the All-Star break and Ingles seems to have his minutes locked down. He's a very good passer and the upside is there for him with some output in steals and treys. He's worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 9:44 pm
    • Teletovic (shortness of breath) in hospital
      Mirza Teletovic was taken to the hospital on Thursday due to shortness of breath.

    • JaMychal Green scores career-high eight
      JaMychal Green scored a career-high eight points against the Bulls on Thursday with three rebounds and two blocks in 15 minutes.

      Advice: He played in garbage time with the Spurs falling out of this game in the third quarter. Green will be out of the rotation while the Spurs are healthy and playing close games. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 7:48 pm
    • Joel Freeland likely out a few more weeks
      Joel Freeland will likely be out for a few more weeks as he recovers from his strained right shoulder.

      Advice: This is a shame because Portland could really use him right now with Robin Lopez (hand) and LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) sidelined. By the time Freeland returns to action, the Blazers will more than likely be healthy and Freeland probably won't be a big part of the rotation. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

      C.J. Miles led the Pacers off the bench with 18 points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on 7-of-15 shooting in Wednesday's loss at Atlanta.

      Advice: Miles is rolling again over his last two games, and is averaging 14.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 1.6 3-pointers over his last five games, despite shooting just 39 percent. Only Luis Scola (10), Rodney Stuckey (12) and C.J. Watson (13) joined Miles in double figures scoring tonight, but Miles looks like the guy to pick up as long as he can stay healthy. Rotoworld.com

    • Danny Granger a no-show in start for Heat
      Danny Granger started in place of Luol Deng (illness) on Wednesday, but failed to do much, finishing with just three points and one rebound on 1-of-3 shooting in 20 minutes.

      Advice: He also had a steal, a block and a 3-pointer, but daily owners who rolled the dice needed a whole lot more from Granger tonight. Deng shouldn't be out long, so look for Granger to crawl back into his cave sooner than later. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 6:53 pm
    • Chris Andersen quiet in start for Heat
      Chris Andersen started for the Heat on Wednesday and had six points, four rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 20 minutes.

      Advice: Not a total loss, but not a big night, either. Hassan Whiteside was out with an ankle injury and remains day-to-day. Andersen should continue to start as long as he's out, but his lack of offense makes him a pretty risky fantasy option. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 6:49 pm
    • Danny Granger starts at SF w/ Luol Deng out
      Danny Granger will start at SF on Wednesday with Luol Deng (illness) unavailable.

      Advice: James Ennis should also see significant minutes and it's hard to rely on either guy for temporary value, as they've both squandered expanded opportunities in the past. Granger went 3-of-5 from the field on Tuesday but prior to that he was riding a long shooting slump, and he's only worth considering as a desperation source of points and 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:40 pm
    • Chris Andersen, Danny Granger starting vs CHA
      Chris Andersen and Danny Granger will start against the Hornets on Wednesday.

      Advice: The Heat are going to need some help in their frontcourt with Luol Deng and Hassan Whiteside out. Shawne Williams rarely plays at small forward, but that might be different out of necessity. Udonis Haslem will also help back up Chris Bosh and Birdman. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:30 pm
    • Birdman starts 2nd half w/ Whiteside ailing
      Chris Andersen returned from his recent illness to finish Tuesday's game with seven points, six boards and one block in 29 minutes.

      Advice: He started the second half in place of Hassan Whiteside (ankle), whose injury may thrust Andersen back into the starting lineup on Wednesday. The Birdman isn't capable of playing big minutes at age 36 and he's best suited to a backup role. There's no reason to own him while Whiteside is day-to-day, unless you're desperate for boards and blocks in a deep league. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:19 pm
    • Carl Landry (wrist) will not play Wednesday
      Carl Landry (wrist) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Nets.

      Advice: He's been out a week after spraining his wrist and the Kings have him listed as day-to-day. Jason Thompson, Derrick Williams and Reggie Evans will each earn more minutes in Landry's absence, but there are no clear-cut winners in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Joel Freeland (shoulder) out on Wednesday
      Joel Freeland (shoulder) will not play Wednesday vs. the Suns.

      Advice: The Blazers are hurting right now with Robin Lopez (hand), LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb), and Freeland all out for Wednesday's game. Look for Chris Kaman to get all the minutes he can handle, with Dorell Wright, Meyers Leonard, and Thomas Robinson set to see some increased opportunity. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Andersen (illness) will be active Tues.
      Chris Andersen (illness) will be activated for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

      Advice: It's not clear at this point if Andersen's return will send Hassan Whiteside to the bench, but either way, Whiteside is the guy with the most upside. Andersen's good for some rebounds and blocks, but he's not much of an asset in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Johnson headed to Turkish League
      Chris Johnson has signed a deal to play in Turkey with Turk Telekom Ankara.

      Advice: Johnson was waived by the 76ers in November and will now take his talents overseas for the remainder of the season. 2.9 points and 1.8 rebounds.The 24-year-old has averaged just 2.9 points and 1.8 rebounds in 71 NBA games, so he doesn't hold any fantasy value even if he finds his way back to the NBA.

    • Wright plays 24 minutes off the bench
      Brandan Wright played 24 minutes off the bench on Monday, managing two points on 1-of-4 shooting with five rebounds and two blocks.

      Advice: This is pretty big news for him as playing time has always been the problem and his fantasy game has been ultra-efficient. He didn't get the job done in the stat sheet tonight, and there could be key differences to how he is deployed in Phoenix vs. Dallas, but he's worth a look as a speculative add -- especially in 9-cat formats.

      C.J. Miles scored 23 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 9-of-18 shots (including four threes) with six rebounds, two assists and five steals in 33 minutes.

      Advice: Miles is hit or miss but the hits have been big enough to keep owners happy lately as a late-round value over the past two weeks. He is going to have a hard time keeping things up when George Hill returns and takes away a bunch of touches, and his injury history isn't the best, so owners should probably ride him until the wheels fall off and start looking for other options.

      Chris Andersen (illness) practiced in full on Monday, and he's expected to play on Tuesday against the Thunder.

      Carl Landry (wrist) will not play on Monday against the Blazers.

      Spurs PF JaMychal Green made his NBA debut on Sunday, going scoreless with one rebound in six minutes off the bench.

      Advice: Green was terrific in the D-League this season and the Spurs rewarded him with a 10-day contract, but he's unlikely to earn minutes outside of garbage time. He belongs on the waiver wire in all formats. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 18, 6:29 pm
    • JaMychal Green will be active on Sunday
      JaMychal Green said he's been told he will be active for Sunday's game vs. the Jazz.

      Advice: Head coach Gregg Popovich summed up Green's value to the team quite accurately during Sunday's pregame presser: "He's the 15th guy. I wouldn't over analyze it." He'll be a name to monitor when the Spurs rest their veteran guys, but as long as the Spurs' marquee players are healthy and active, Green won't be worth using in any leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Spurs officially sign JaMychal Green Sunday
      The Spurs have officially signed JaMychal Green to a 10-day contract on Sunday.

      Advice: He was an absolute stud in the D-League, but he will likely be buried on the depth chart in San Antonio. Aside from the deepest of leagues, you can safely monitor Green from the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

      J.J. Hickson double-doubled off the bench on Saturday against Minnesota, scoring 14 points with 10 boards and one assist in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He has now notched double-doubles in four of his last six games, and it's becoming obvious that the trade of Timofey Mozgov has really benefited him. While he is definitely worth owning in points leagues, owners in standard leagues can still probably do better given Hickson's poor free throw shooting and his inability to contribute in areas other than points and boards.

    • Chase Budinger gets benched on Saturday
      Chase Budinger returned to a bench role on Saturday against the Nuggets, scoring just six points with one 3-pointer in 14 minutes.

      Advice: Robbie Hummel was inserted into the starting lineup for this contest and responded with a massive double-double, meaning Budinger's time in the sun is already over. Unless you are in a ridiculously deep league and desperately need 3-pointers, you can let go of Budinger. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Miles has another awful game
      C.J. Miles made 2-of-13 from the field for five points with five rebounds against the Hornets on Saturday.

      Advice: He missed all eight shots from deep and even air-balled one. If one thing is clear on Miles, it’s that he has a green light from deep. He’s taken 8.1 attempts from beyond the arc in his previous eight games. Besides that and scoring in the mid-teens, there’s not much else to his fantasy value while he’s going to shoot below 40 percent from the field on a fairly high volume. Rotoworld.com

    • Carl Landry (wrist) ruled out on Saturday
      Carl Landry (wrist) will not play on Saturday against the Clippers.

      Advice: He missed Friday against the Heat and the Kings basically gave all of his minutes to Reggie Evans. Landry just as a sprain and shouldn't be out much longer. Evans is only worth a look if you desperately need boards. Rotoworld.com

    • JaMychal Green likely headed to Spurs
      JaMychal Green is likely headed to the San Antonio Spurs on a 10-day contract.

      Advice: He would have had some sleeper potential had he landed with the Knicks, but Green is likely going to be buried on the depth chart in San Antonio. Owners in deep leagues can simply monitor him from the waiver wire, and we will let you know when the deal becomes official. Rotoworld.com

    • JaMychal Green drawing interest from NBA
      JaMychal Green has left the Austin Spurs of the NBA D-League and will likely sign with an NBA team very soon.

      Advice: He has drawn interest from the Spurs, Bulls, Grizzlies and Knicks after his impressive showings in the D-League, but New York is the only listed team where he could potentially make an impact right out of the gate. We will continue to follow this situation closely, and owners in deep leagues should keep him on their radar. Rotoworld.com

    • Ingles has another quiet but versatile line
      Joe Ingles scored three points on 1-of-2 shooting (all threes) with two rebounds, four assists and a career-high three steals in 22 minutes on Friday against the Lakers.

      Advice: Ingles has quietly played at a mid-round level over his last three games, but he needs to stave off the return of Rodney Hood and then after that keep it up. Chances are he can't do it, but his versatility should be noted if he's able to work his way into consistent minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandan Wright gets 20 minutes
      Brandan Wright had his best game in a Suns uniform on Friday with 11 points, three rebounds, and one block.

      Advice: It was his usual dunk fest and he made 5-of-6 from the field tonight. Wright is fitting in immediately, but the Suns just won't take minutes away from Alex Len. He should have similar value to what he had in Dallas, which makes him some to monitor very closely. Rotoworld.com

    • Hickson double-doubles with season-high rebs
      J.J. Hickson double-doubled with 13 points, a season-high 14 rebounds, five turnovers and 3-of-8 makes from the foul line in 28 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: Outside of points leagues this line has no real value and that's the story with Hickson, as his fantasy deficiencies keep him from being an asset in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
