  • Ricky Rubio struggles in return from injury
    Ricky Rubio returned from his ankle injury but missed all five of his shots to finish with three points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Even when healthy, Rubio is suspect to nights like this, but at least he was back on the court. Look for him to bounce back on Friday against the Blazers. 25 minutes ago
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) scores 20 points in loss
    Tyreke Evans (knee) made his season debut in Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies and scored 20 points with 10 assists, five boards, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: So much for his 25-minute limit. The Pelicans were expected to be cautious with Evans tonight, but he looked phenomenal and really kept them in this game. Head coach Alvin Gentry said before the game that he won't limit Evans for back-to-back sets, but his owners should check the injury report prior to Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets just in case since he played such heavy minutes. Evans is a must-own player moving forward. 26 minutes ago
  • Markieff Morris struggles in loss to Nets
    Markieff Morris hit just 3-of-11 shots for six points, one rebound and three assists in 28 minutes on Tuesday.

    Advice: Yuck. He's scored just 6, 7 or 8 points in three of his last four games and has struggled with his shot in all four of them. He should break out of the funk soon, making now a nice buy-low opportunity on the twin. Today, 8:00 pm
  • Wall scores a season-high 35 points in win
    John Wall dropped a season-high 35 points in a win over the Cavaliers on Tuesday with 10 assists, four boards, five steals and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

    Advice: He did have five turnovers as well, but this was the breakout game that his owners have been waiting for. Wall hasn't been a top-50 player in standard leagues prior to Tuesday, but he should be able to build some momentum after this performance. On another note, the Wizards snapped a four-game losing streak with the win. Today, 7:41 pm
  • Ricky Rubio will start, LaVine to the bench
    Ricky Rubio (ankle) will start on Tuesday vs. the Magic with Zach LaVine moving to the bench.

    Advice: No surprises here. Rubio has missed the last two games, but he did say that he could've played on Sunday vs. the Clippers which suggests that his ankle should be close to 100 percent. Make sure he is in your lineups. Today, 4:54 pm
  • Tyreke Evans will start on Tuesday vs. MEM
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will be on a 25-minute limit and will start on Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Eric Gordon will head to the bench and look to bolster the second unit's offense. Evans will likely be on a minutes limit for a few weeks, but the good news is that coach Alvin Gentry said he won't be limited on back-to-back sets. Those of you in DFS should ignore him until his restrictions are lifted, but he needs to be owned in all season-long leagues. Today, 3:36 pm
  • Ricky Rubio (ankle) will play Tuesday vs. ORL
    Ricky Rubio (ankle) will play Tuesday against the Magic.

    Advice: He should start, which will send Zach LaVine back to the bench. Rubio spent the past two games on the sidelines as a precautionary measure by the Wolves, but he should get his full compliment of minutes with a favorable matchup against the Magic. Go ahead and get him active. Today, 3:33 pm
  • Rumor: Rockets looking to deal Ty Lawson?
    The Rockets are rumored to be shopping around Ty Lawson, according to Steve Kyler of Basketball Insiders.

    Advice: This report is hardly surprising given how horribly Lawson has fit in Houston's system, but with how bad he's been this season and some well documented off-court issues, the Rockets likely wouldn't be able to gain much in a trade for the troubled point guard. However, that doesn't mean that a trade is unlikely, Ty does have a rather attractive contract in that the final $13.2 million of his deal is fully non-guaranteed; a stipulation that he agreed to when coming to Houston. His value would obviously be greatly improved outside of Houston, so if you want to stash him away in a deep league with the hopes that he's moved, it wouldn't be the worst idea. To be clear, nothing is imminent. Today, 12:11 pm
  • Tyreke Evans set to play vs Grizzlies on Tues
    Tyreke Evans (knee) said he'll be ready to play against the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

    Advice: Evans posted on Instagram saying that he isn't 100 percent, but will be ready to play Tuesday night. Fantasy owners should temper their expectations for Tuesday as Evans will likely be on a minutes limit, but he should be owned in all fantasy leagues. Today, 9:02 am
  • Dionte Christmas signs in Israel
    Dionte Christmas has signed with Hapoel Holon of Israel, according to Marc J. Spears of ESPN.

    Advice: While Christmas was a successful player in college, he hasn't enjoyed that success in the NBA and will now head overseas to attempt to continue his career. He can be ignored for fantasy purposes. Today, 6:40 am
  • DeMarcus Cousins scores 31 points in win
    DeMarcus Cousins scored 31 points during a 112-98 win over the Mavs on Monday, adding nine rebounds, six assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

    Advice: He attempted eight shots from deep, which just doesn't make sense. On the season, he's made a respectable 34.0 percent from deep to account for 22.3 percent of his shot total. Boogie has seen his 3-point percentage drop recently, making just 19.0 percent in his last four games. He's still feasting at the rim and has averages of 28.2 points and 11.0 boards. Hopefully, he can avoid back and Achilles injuries going forward. Today, 12:29 am
  • Omri Casspi scores 10 points in 33 minutes
    Omri Casspi played 33 minutes against the Mavs on Monday with 10 points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: The Kings really like the Casspi, Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins lineup in their frontcourt. Of their 77 three-man combinations with at least 35 minutes this season, none have a higher net rating than the Boogie, Gay and Omri combo. He'll probably be hit and miss, but Omri might be worth a flier in standard leagues even with the Kings getting healthy. Today, 12:12 am
  • DeMarcus Cousins returned to action on Monday November 30. Today, 12:10 am
  • Wes Matthews plays 36 minutes
    Wesley Matthews played 36 minutes against the Kings on Monday with 10 points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's apparently pretty healthy with that high minute total and coach Rick Carlisle even asked him to guard DeMarcus Cousins late in the fourth quarter. The Mavs have a back-to-back set and it's on the road, so Matthews' fantasy owners might want to make sure he's a go. Although, he probably wants to play against his former team in Portland. Yesterday, 11:46 pm
  • Derrick Favors scores 23 points in loss
    Derrick Favors scored 23 points against the Warriors during a 106-103 loss on Monday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals

    Advice: It's not easy to get a 20-10 against the Warriors, which is a testament to how phenomenal Favors has been this season. Favors has been a top-15 player in standard leagues per game and has become a terrific two-way big man. Yesterday, 11:09 pm
  • Al-Farouq Aminu shoots 3-of-15 from field
    Al-Farouq Aminu shot 3-of-15 from the field in Monday's loss to the Clippers, finishing with seven points, seven boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Aminu has now scored in single digits in three straight games, and it's definitely a little odd that he attempted 15 shots considering he is a shaky jump shooter. AFA is now only returning late-round value after a hot start to the season, but he does have enough upside to warrant a hold in standard leagues. He should be able to bounce back against his former team (Mavs) on Tuesday. Yesterday, 11:06 pm
  • Blake Griffin scores 23 points with 6 dimes
    Blake Griffin scored 23 points with eight boards, six assists, one block and one steal in Monday's win over the Blazers.

    Advice: Griffin shot 8-of-19 from the field and 7-of-10 from the charity stripe, so it was business as usual for the superstar forward. Chris Paul went down with a rib injury and his status for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers is up in the air, so Griffin may be asked to do more playmaking on offense if CP3 misses some action. Griffin is still comfortably returning first-round value in standard leagues. Yesterday, 10:30 pm
  • Danny Green scores nine points
    Danny Green made 3-of-10 from the field for nine points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Bulls on Monday.

    Advice: He just can't get out of his own way this season, but he is showing some signs of life in his last five. In that span, he averaged 9.4 points, 4.4 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.2 treys. The bad news? He's made just 34.7 percent from the field in that run. He's been a disaster in the paint after being pretty decent from there in his career. His struggles are one of the longest anomalies in the past few seasons. Stick with him. Yesterday, 10:16 pm
  • Jeff Teague scores 25 in big win
    Jeff Teague shined in a 106-100 victory over the Thunder on Monday with 25 points, three rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He was coming off a six-point dud on Saturday against the Spurs. Besides that, Teague has been great with three 20-point games in his last four. He's a top-10 fantasy point guard. Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Patrick Beverley has a nice outing in loss
    Patrick Beverley scored 10 points with three rebounds, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Pistons on Monday.

    Advice: This is a typical Pat-Bev line with poor shooting, some defense and some treys. He has some decent low-end value in standard leagues and is worth a look in most eight- and nine-cat formats. Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Ty Lawson gets 19 minutes
    Ty Lawson played 19 minutes against the Pistons on Monday with 11 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: Before this one, he didn't have a 3-point make since Nov. 14. Lawson probably wouldn't have been looking at this much playing time if he wasn't hitting treys and the Rockets were down in the fourth, so it's not time to pick him back up just yet. Yesterday, 8:17 pm
  • Derrick Favors to start, Booker back to bench
    Derrick Favors will start on Monday vs. the Warriors with Trevor Booker moving back to the bench.

    Advice: Favors (personal) did not play on Saturday vs. the Pelicans, but he did return to practice on Sunday. We still don't why he got an excused absence from the Jazz, but hopefully everything is OK. Go ahead and plug him back into your lineups. Yesterday, 5:55 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins (back) will play Monday
    DeMarcus Cousins (back) will play on Monday against the Mavs.

    Advice: He was at shootaround and there has been no talk of him being limited tonight. The Kings have four games this week, so he should be in all lineups. Boogie should have success against Zaza Pacuhlia tonight. Expect Kosta Koufos, Willie Cauley-Stein, Marco Belinelli and Omri Casspi to take a hit here. Yesterday, 5:46 pm
  • Rockets still believe in Ty Lawson
    Coach J.B. Bickerstaff said he still believes in Ty Lawson and Corey Brewer.

    Advice: "We’re going to give those guys opportunities to get back to being the players that they are," Bickerstaff said. "We don’t win as big as we want to win if those guys are not playing at their best." Lawson was a DNP-CD on Sunday, so he's not someone fantasy owners should be stashing in most leagues. Yesterday, 4:39 pm
  • Ricky Rubio (ankle) questionable for Tuesday
    Ricky Rubio (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday against the Magic.

    Advice: This doesn't really mean anything because Rubio was listed as probable twice before and didn't play. According to most reports, he's expected to play on Tuesday. The Wolves only have two games this week, so fantasy owners shouldn't be using Rubio in most cases. Yesterday, 2:33 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins (back) probable for Monday
    DeMarcus Cousins (back) is probable to play against the Mavs on Monday.

    Advice: That means he should be a go after going through shootaround on Monday morning. Cousins will be returning after a week off and he shouldn't be limited. With his return, Kosta Koufos, Willie Cauley-Stein, Marco Belinelli and Omri Casspil will lose some value. Cousins' fantasy owners can start him tonight. Yesterday, 2:17 pm
  • Ricky Rubio practices in full on Monday
    Ricky Rubio (ankle) put in a full practice on Monday.

    Advice: That bodes well for his chances to play on Tuesday against the Magic. Rubio is on track to play and an earlier report from today said he "should be back" for that game. The Wolves are playing Zach LaVine at the two a little more now, so his fantasy owners should keep him on their roster to see how it goes. Rubio will be a risky start in weekly leagues due to the chance of an aggravation. Yesterday, 12:22 pm
  • Tyreke Evans expected to play on Tuesday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) is expected to play on Tuesday "unless something bizarre happens," according to coach Alvin Gentry.

    Advice: Technically he's listed as questionable for Tuesday. He's going to have a minutes limit and Gentry said Evans will have a similar plan to Jrue Holiday. He probably will only be around 20 minutes for the next two weeks and probably won't play in back-to-back sets. Evans will likely play minutes on the wing with how well Ish Smith played in the past two weeks. He should be owned in all leagues. Yesterday, 11:58 am
  • DeMarcus Cousins goes through shootaround
    DeMarcus Cousins (back) went through shootaround on Monday and remains questionable to play against the Mavs.

    Advice: Mavs coach Rick Carlisle is expecting Boogie to play tonight and going through shootaround bodes well for his chances. If he can return, that would mean less output for Kosta Koufos, Omri Casspi and Marco Bellineli. Cousins' fantasy owners can probably put him for weekly leagues with four games on the schedule this week. Yesterday, 11:21 am
  • Evans, Cole could make season debut Tuesday
    Tyreke Evans (right knee surgery) and Norris Cole (high left ankle sprain) could each debut on Tuesday vs. Memphis.

    Advice: "There’s a very good chance that both of those guys will be ready Tuesday," Gentry said. Although Evans will face a Jrue Holiday-like minutes cap and Cole will likely be limited upon initially returning, the Pelicans getting healthier at point guard will impact Ish Smith's fantasy value. Smith has been impressive this season, averaging 11.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 8.1 assists and 1.2 steals in 30.5 minutes per game, but something has to give. It's Evans, not Cole, that Smith and those with him on the roster will have to worry about. Yesterday, 7:23 am
  • Ricky Rubio (ankle) 'should be back' Tuesday
    Ricky Rubio (left ankle) "should be back" for Tuesday's game vs. Orlando.

    Advice: We've heard this one before, so we'll have to see it to believe it. Rubio is reportedly feeling good, but that's the same thing that's been said previously and Rubio has still been held out. Until the point guard is in the starting lineup, we'll consider him questionable to actually play. In six starts, Zach LaVine is averaging 20.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.5 assists and 2.2 3-pointers on 45.8 percent shooting. Yesterday, 7:08 am
  • Patrick Beverley racks up five steals Sunday
    Patrick Beverley racked up five steals in 34 minutes during Sunday's overtime road win, adding seven points, three rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: He turned the ball over just once and Houston is 2-0 with Bev in the starting lineup. He's never been a good source of assists, but contributes enough 3-pointers and steals to be worth owning now that the starting PG job is his to lose. Sunday, 8:25 pm
  • Ty Lawson a healthy DNP-CD vs. New York
    Ty Lawson was a healthy DNP-CD vs. the Knicks on Sunday.

    Advice: It's official -- Patrick Beverley and Jason Terry have erased Lawson from coach J.B. Bickerstaff's rotation. If you haven't already cut him for a more promising free agent, take this as your long-overdue cue. Sunday, 8:24 pm
  • Cousins (back) questionable for Monday
    DeMarcus Cousins (back) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: He's missed three games in a row due to a back strain and didn't even travel with the team on Saturday, but this is a somewhat positive report. If Cousins can't give it a go on Monday we should see a lot more of Kosta Koufos and Omri Casspi for the Kings. Sunday, 6:58 pm
  • Markieff Morris scores seven on 3-of-12 FGs
    The Suns prevailed in Toronto on Sunday despite a poor game from Markieff Morris, who scored seven points on 3-of-12 shooting.

    Advice: Kieff added eight rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 23 minutes of action. He blew up last Monday with 28 points on 12-of-15 shooting, but excluding that game his season average is 37.1 percent from the field. That's easily the worst mark of his career, and he should probably be benched in standard leagues until he shows sustained improvement. Sunday, 6:26 pm
  • Blake Griffin posts 26/8/8 in win vs. Wolves
    Blake Griffin scored 26 points while adding eight rebounds, eight assists and two blocks during Sunday's home win vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: He made 9-of-16 shots, including a 3-pointer, and went 7-of-9 at the free throw line. The Clips have now won two straight games, and three of their last four, bumping their record above .500 for the first time in nearly two weeks. Blake's fantasy owners have been reaping the benefits of his huge season, as he's currently holding first-round value in both 8-cat and 9-cat formats. Sunday, 4:23 pm
  • Derrick Favors (personal) returns to practice
    Derrick Favors (personal) was back with the Jazz during Sunday's practice, and he will likely return to the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Jazz.

    Advice: Favors received an excused absence from Saturday's game, and there's no reason to believe he won't be on the floor on Monday, as the Jazz look to hand the Dubs their first loss of the season. Favor's return will do no favors for the fantasy value of Trevor Booker. Sunday, 11:56 am
  • Ricky Rubio (ankle) out Sunday vs. Clippers
    Ricky Rubio (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Clippers.

    Advice: Rubio wants to play, but the Wolves are being extra cautious with their franchise point guard, and he will miss his second consecutive game on Sunday. Zach LaVine will draw the start, so he makes sense as a DFS play. Chris Paul could also be in for a big game as LaVine isn't great on the defensive end. The Wolves play again on Tuesday vs. Orlando, so we'll be considering Rubio questionable for that one. Sunday, 11:39 am
  • Omri Casspi scores 11 in start on Saturday
    Omri Casspi scored 11 points on 3-of-10 shooting with seven boards, one assist and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes in a start at small forward on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: DeMarcus Cousins (back) was sidelined again, but George Karl went with Casspi instead of Willie Cauley-Stein because of the Warriors' tendency to play small. Casspi should flirt with 30 minutes per game until Cousins is able to return (he is day-to-day), so feel free to give him a look if he's available in your league. The Kings will take on the Mavericks on Monday. Saturday, 10:52 pm
  • Wes Matthews scores seven points
    Wes Matthews scored seven points in 28 minutes during a 92-81 win over the Nuggets on Saturday, adding one rebound, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: It hasn't been pretty since Friday the 13th. In those eight games, Matthews made just 31.6 percent from the field for averages of 11.4 points, 2.4 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.1 treys. He has actually looked OK out there, so he can be viewed as a buy-low player to a degree. You should be giving up next to nothing to get him. Saturday, 9:17 pm
  • Jeff Teague struggles vs. Spurs
    Jeff Teague scored six points with three rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Spurs.

    Advice: Yuck. Teague had one of the best lines last night, but he didn't have it tonight. For this year and last year, Teague's shooting percentage is worse on the second night of a back-to-back than on any other night with 1-3 days of rest. He's fine, obviously. Saturday, 8:03 pm
  • Brick Wall: John Wall hits 6-of-25 from field
    John Wall couldn't get his shot going against the Raptors on Saturday, making 6-of-25 from the field for 18 points with three rebounds, five assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

    Advice: To make matters worse, he missed two free throws with three seconds left to open the door for a Cory Joseph game-winning trey. Wall dropped below 40 percent from the field on the tonight and is at 39.0 now. He's only putting up mid-round value on the year and is pretty close to rock bottom. He's an obvious buy-low player. Saturday, 6:36 pm
  • Omri Casspi will start, Cauley-Stein to bench
    Omri Casspi will start on Saturday vs. the Warriors with Willie Cauley-Stein moving to the bench.

    Advice: DeMarcus Cousins (back) is out and head coach George Karl usually bases his lineups on the matchup, so it makes sense to go small against the Warriors. Casspi should see around 30 minutes tonight and is worth plugging into most lineups. Saturday, 6:28 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) will not play on Sat
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will not play on Saturday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful, so this isn't a surprise. Evans' next chance to play will be on Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies, but keep in mind that he will have a Jrue Holiday-like minutes cap upon his return. That being said, he has enough upside to warrant a pickup in all leagues if he is somehow still available. Saturday, 4:39 pm
  • Wesley Matthews (illness) will play Saturday
    Wesley Matthews (illness) will play vs. the Nuggets on Saturday.

    Advice: He did miss the morning shootaround, but Matthews said that he has played through worse. Matthews is starting to heat up and is averaging 13.8 points and 2.6 3-pointers over his last five games, so go ahead and make sure he is active. Keep in mind that he is also shooting just 36.5 percent from the field over that span as well. Saturday, 4:28 pm
  • Derrick Favors (personal) out for Saturday
    Derrick Favors (personal) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: He received an excused absence and hopefully everything is OK with Favors. While he's out, it'll likely be Trevor Booker is likely going to start despite his awful season -- Trey Lyles could wind up starting again, too. Expect to see more of Joe Ingles, but Booker is probably your best bet in DFS. Saturday, 4:24 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins (back) out for Saturday
    DeMarcus Cousins (back) did not travel for Saturday's game against the Warriors.

    Advice: He'll miss his third game due to a back strain. With Cousins out, Kosta Koufos should start and Willie Cauley-Stein may also start, but doesn't have much value. Koufos, Marco Belinelli, Omri Casspi and Rudy Gay should benefit most. Saturday, 3:04 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins officially doubtful vs. GSW
    DeMarcus Cousins (back) was feeling better on Friday night and has been listed as doubtful on Saturday.

    Advice: An earlier report from today had Boogie out of the lineup tonight. Multiple reports suggest he's very unlikely to play, but he does have a chance to get out there tonight. Fantasy owners should be treating Saturday night like he's not going to play. Omri Casspi, Marco Belinelli, Kosta Koufos and Rudy Gay should benefit. Saturday, 2:12 pm
  • Tyreke will have a Jrue-like minutes cap
    Coach Alvin Gentry said Tyreke Evans (knee) will have a Jrue Holiday-like minutes cap upon his return.

    Advice: He is doubtful to return on Saturday. Evans will likely be hanging around 20 minutes per game for the first month and he won't play in back-to-back sets. That means those who stashed him will likely have to wait a month before he's really humming. His upside is still strong enough to stash in all leagues and hopefully he stays healthy. Saturday, 1:30 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) still doubtful vs. Utah
    Tyreke Evans (knee) is doubtful to play against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: It's still a little puzzling to see the Pelicans say they were hoping Evans would play back on Wednesday, but it's not really a surprise since he was expected to be out for up to two more weeks. With Evans doubtful and Jrue Holiday (rest) likely out again, it'll be the Ish Smith show in a sub-par matchup. Evans should be stashed in all leagues. Saturday, 1:06 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins (back) out for Saturday
    DeMarcus Cousins (back) will not play against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: It'll be his third game out of the lineup due to his strained back. With Boogie out, Marco Belinelli and Omri Casspi have really stepped up with the extra shots to go around. Kosta Koufos is also coming off a double-double on Friday. All three players are going to be popular players in DFS, which is certainly justifiable. Boogie owners should consider him questionable for Monday against the Mavs. Saturday, 11:53 am
  • Ricky Rubio (ankle) is targeting Sunday
    The Wolves are hoping to get Ricky Rubio (ankle) back for Sunday's game vs. Clippers.

    Advice: Rubio could have played on Friday night vs. the Kings, but the Wolves decided to hold him out as a precaution. The good news is that his injury is minor and it's not related to last year's ankle issue which limited him to 22 appearances, so he should be fine moving forward. If Rubio is held out again, Zach LaVine should get another start. Saturday, 8:25 am
  • Markieff Morris plays just 17 mins in blowout
    Markieff Morris played just 17 minutes during Friday's blowout loss to the Warriors, tallying 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting to go with three boards, one assist, two 3-pointers, one steal and four turnovers.

    Advice: It's been an up-and-down season for Kieff, and while he's currently earning a career-high usage rate of 26.1, that just hasn't been translating to the stat sheet like it should. While tonight's dud can largely be attributed to the stellar defense of Draymond Green, Morris is still only putting up late-round value on the year behind averages of 13.1 points, 5.5 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 0.9 three-pointers per game on 40.5 percent shooting. Morris might not want to play in Phoenix, but it's tough to see him getting this much opportunity in another city. Saturday, 12:58 am
  • Omri Casspi puts up nice effort in loss
    Omri Casspi scored 15 points against the Wolves on Friday with six rebounds and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: He continues to log major minutes at power forward, which should continue until DeMarcus Cousins (back) is back. Casspi has 10th-round value on the season, but that value is somewhat inflated due to Boogie and Rudy Gay missing time this season. Saturday, 12:06 am
  • Jeff Teague goes off against the Grizzlies
    Jeff Teague was awesome during a 116-101 win over the Grizzlies on Friday, making 5-of-7 from the field and all six from the line for 20 points with two rebounds, seven assists, one steal, four 3-pointers and one turnover.

    Advice: That's a 100.0 true shooting percentage and scoring 20 points with just one turnover and seven dimes is the most efficient line for point guards tonight. Teague's ankle injury is obviously behind him, but feel free to check back to make sure he's a go on a back-to-back set. Friday, 11:51 pm
  • Pat Beverley gets 32 minutes in start
    Patrick Beverley played 32 minutes in his first start of the season on Friday, scoring five points with two rebounds, four assists, one steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: This is a typical Pat-Bev line, but his owners will definitely take it. If he's going to get minutes close to 30, he should have enough value in standard leagues. Of course, he's been injury prone, so he's not a must-grab player or anything. Friday, 10:41 pm
  • Ty Lawson gets 16 minutes
    Ty Lawson played 16 minutes on Friday with four points, three assists, one steal and three turnovers against the 76ers.

    Advice: Hey, at least it was more than three minutes, but Lawson still hasn't looked like himself. This game isn't enough to pick him back up in most leagues. Friday, 10:35 pm
  • Danny Green hits three 3-pointers in win
    Danny Green sank three 3-pointers during Friday's win over the Nuggets, but added just nine points, four boards, one steal and two turnovers through 27 minutes.

    Advice: Green has now hit multiple 3-pointers in his previous three outings, but he hasn't brought much else to the stat sheet during that span with averages of just 11.0 points, 5.3 boards, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks per game. The talent is there, and the minutes have been consistent, so owners are going to just need to stay patient and hope that the defensive stats start coming. For what it's worth, Green has been at least a mid-round asset since the 2012-13 season, so it doesn't seem likely he'll be this bad for the entire year. Friday, 10:03 pm
  • Ricky Rubio (ankle) out Friday vs. Sacramento
    Ricky Rubio (ankle) will not suit up for Friday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: While Rubio wanted to play tonight, the Wolves are holding him out as a precaution and Zach LaVine will be inserted into the starting lineup in his place. LaVine will get a favorable matchup against the Kings, so go ahead and get him active. The Wolves play again on Sunday vs. the Clippers and we'll be considering Rubio questionable for that one. This is a reminder that owners should be looking to sell high on Rubio once he strings together a few good games. Friday, 6:32 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) ruled out for Friday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Clippers, but Alvin Gentry said that there's a chance he suits up for Saturday's game against the Jazz.

    Advice: The Pelicans are currently on a back-to-back set, so it's not shocking to see Evans sit out the first game. He's getting very close to a return, and needs to be owned in all leagues at this point. Eric Gordon, Dante Cunningham, Alonzo Gee and Ish Smith will continue to benefit with Evans on the sidelines. Friday, 6:10 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins (back) out for Friday
    DeMarcus Cousins (back) will not play against the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: It'll be his second consecutive game out of the lineup with his strained back. Cousins was upgraded to questionable tonight, but he could also miss Saturday's game at Golden State. With Boogie out, we'll see Kosta Koufos pick up most of the big minutes while the Kings go small a lot. Marco Belinelli, Darren Collison and Willie Cauley-Stein should get more run. Rudy Gay will be busy and play a lot of four, too. Friday, 5:09 pm
  • Patrick Beverley will start vs. 76ers
    Patrick Beverley will start against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: It'll be his first start of the season. The Rockets haven't got much out of their point guard spot all season, so Beverley should be getting minutes in the mid 20s. He's a solid pickup in 14-team leagues right now and is worth a look in stanard leagues, too. Friday, 4:39 pm
  • Rockets may alter starting lineup vs. Philly
    Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that he may alter his starting lineup vs. the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: The most likely move is shifting Patrick Beverley into the starting lineup ahead of Jason Terry. Ty Lawson played only three minutes on Wednesday and might not even be in the rotation, allowing Beverley and Terry to split the PG minutes between them. Friday, 3:31 pm
  • Ricky Rubio is a game-time call for Friday
    Ricky Rubio (ankle) is a game-time decision to face the Kings on Friday.

    Advice: He is reportedly feeling better, but the Wolves are probably going to be careful with Rubio given his injury history and how he had some ankle soreness even before he played on Wednesday. If he's out, Zach LaVine will be a popular DFS play in a favorable matchup. He should be owned in all standard leagues, too. Friday, 11:59 am
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) doubtful for Friday night
    Tyreke Evans (knee) is doubtful to play against the Clippers on Friday.

    Advice: He is still receiving treatment for his knee and he's still ahead of his timetable, which originally had him returning in December. If Evans is out, Ish Smith will look to build off his 20-point, 11-dime game from Wednesday while Dante Cunningham and Alonzo Gee will remain in the rotation at small forward. Evans should be owned in all leagues. Thursday, 8:17 pm
  • Teague, Korver, Sefolosha probable for Friday
    Jeff Teague (ankle), Kyle Korver (ankle rehab) and Thabo Sefolosha (ankle rehab) are also listed as probable for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: All these guys are healthy and they played their usual minutes on Wednesday. They've had a full day off to recover, and there's no reason to believe that any of these guys will spend Friday's game on the sidelines. Thursday, 3:23 pm
  • Omri Casspi headed for more minutes?
    Following the Kings 129-118 win over the Bucks on Wednesday, George Karl hinted that Omri Casspi could be getting more consistent minutes in the Kings rotation.

    Advice: "I think I need to keep Omri in with Rudy [Gay] as much as possible," said Karl. "It seems that combination really complements with size there and also the ability to find a mismatch situation that is beneficial to us." Casspi's minutes tend to trend up when DeMarcus Cousins (back) is sidelined, but if Karl wants to continue giving Casspi and Gay minutes together, Willie Cauley-Stein's playing time could suffer. It'll be interesting to see how Karl's rotations shake out once DMC is back on the court, but Omri is worth a speculative add in deep leagues after scoring 19 points during Wednesday's win. Thursday, 2:19 pm
  • John Wall thinks Wiz made late-game mistake
    John Wall said the Wizards shouldn't have rested he and Bradley Beal at the same time during the fourth quarter of Wednesday's loss to the Hornets.

    Advice: Wall and Beal both sat for the first part of the fourth quarter and Wall thinks it helped contribute to the loss. "I feel like we can’t have me and Brad sitting," said Wall. "That’s just my opinion. Coach makes the decision he feels is best for us. I just feel like one of us has to be in in that situation because when you’re on the road, this is the time when you can step on them." Frustrations aside, Wall has been struggling for the last couple weeks, but is too talented for fantasy owners to bench as a turnaround should be around the corner. Thursday, 9:55 am
  • Ty Lawson won't speak to coach about minutes
    Ty Lawson said he won't speak to Rockets interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff about his decreased playing time.

    Advice: Lawson played just under three minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Grizzlies, but said he would accept his role in (or out) of the Rockets rotation. "Man, I'm just down for whatever [it takes] for the team to win," Lawson said. "Whatever the coach thinks, whatever my role needs to be or anything like that, I'm down to do." While Lawson has potential, he can be dropped in all fantasy leagues due to his new diminished playing time. Thursday, 6:54 am
  • Derrick Favors scores 22 points in win
    Derrick Favors scored 22 points against the Clippers during a 102-92 win on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, two assists and three steals.

    Advice: While he didn't have his best defensive game with one-on-one defense, Favors lit it up with his shooting line of 10-of-15 from the field. He has seen exceptional growth as a shooter and isn't just a guy who can score from within three feet anymore. He has second-round value on the season and most signs point to him maintaining that value. Wednesday, 11:49 pm
  • Blake Griffin scores 40 pts on 18-of-23 FGs
    Blake Griffin was brilliant on Wednesday, scoring 40 points on 18-of-23 shooting with 12 rebounds, three assists and two blocks, but it wasn't enough to defeat the visiting Jazz.

    Advice: Griffin sank 9-of-12 shots between 10-22 feet from the hoop tonight, and with his passing and ball-handling abilities it essentially made him unguardable. The Clippers lost anyway and they don't have much to be thankful for in terms of their on-court success -- after four straight wins to open the season, they've now lost eight of their past 11 games. Blake has the fifth-highest PER in the league at 27.3, trailing only LeBron, Durant, Westbrook and Curry, yet his team has a sub-.500 record. Wednesday, 11:48 pm
  • Markieff Morris scores just eight points
    Markieff Morris scored eight points against the Pelicans on Wednesday with eight rebounds, three assists and one block.

    Advice: He only attempted 4-of-11 from the field. Morris had his best outing of the season while Eric Bledsoe was out in his last game, so perhaps that caused the sudden rise after basically a season-long slump. Still, he is worth owning in standard leagues. Wednesday, 10:38 pm
  • Patrick Beverley gets 19 minutes in return
    Patrick Beverley played 19 minutes in his return to the lineup on Wednesday, scoring four points with two rebounds, two assists and one turnover.

    Advice: It was hardly a good game, but this is a positive for Beverley because Ty Lawson is moving out of the rotation. After the holiday, Beverley should be considered as the favorite to start against the 76ers on Friday. Wednesday, 9:29 pm
  • Ty Lawson plays three minutes, takes 0 shots
    Ty Lawson played three minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday and had no stats.

    Advice: No shots, no turnovers, no fouls and no assists. Lawson is basically out of the rotation right now and can be dropped in most leagues. Wednesday, 9:22 pm
  • Omri Casspi has a terrific game
    Omri Casspi scored 19 points with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He gets a ton of run at both forward spots and he benefited from DeMarcus Cousins (back) not playing tonight. Casspi put up mid-round value the last time Boogie had to miss games, so he's worth a look at any depth for owners seeking short-term value. Cousins won't be out long, though. Wednesday, 8:49 pm
  • Jeff Teague gets 22/5/5 with two steals
    Jeff Teague warmed up in Wednesday's road loss, scoring 22 points on 8-of-17 FGs and 5-of-7 FTs, with five rebounds, five assists and two steals.

    Advice: Teague sank one 3-pointer and turned the ball over only twice in 34 minutes, looking like his old self after a few quiet games following his ankle injury. He'll wrap up the week with two tough road games in San Antonio (Friday) and Memphis (Saturday). Wednesday, 8:42 pm
  • John Wall's season-high six steals squandered
    John Wall stole the ball a season-high six times on Wednesday, adding 14 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds and six assists in a tough road defeat.

    Advice: Wall's career-high is nine steals and he's now averaging 2.4 per game this season, good for fourth place in the NBA behind Jae Crowder, Stephen Curry and Kyle Lowry. It wasn't all positive for Wall tonight, however, as he also shot 6-of-18 from the field with a team-high five turnovers. Wednesday, 6:46 pm
  • Pat Beverley says he's 'definitely playing'
    Pat Beverley (ankle) said he's "definitely playing" against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll be coming off the bench, but we still don't know if he's going to start after tonight. We'll have another update shortly, but expect Beverley to get minutes in the teens to low 20s tonight. Jason Terry will lose some run and maybe Ty Lawson, too. Wednesday, 3:57 pm
  • Pat Beverley (ankle) will be a game-time call
    Pat Beverley (ankle) is a game-time decision to face the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: Beverley is a tough guy and if it's up to him, he's playing. He has a decent chance to start tonight and has some value in deeper leagues. Jason Terry would play less and possibly Ty Lawson. Wednesday, 3:21 pm
  • Beverley (ankle) goes through shootaround
    Patrick Beverley (ankle) was a full participant during shootaround, but he remains questionable for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Beverley seems on track to make his return on Wednesday, but he's going to come off the bench and his minutes will be monitored, making him an unattractive option in most leagues. Beverley could conceivably start for the Rockets at some point, but he's likely headed for a three-way timeshare with Jason Terry and Ty Lawson; meaning at best he could only be viewed as a steals and 3-point specialist in deep leagues. Wednesday, 9:14 am
  • Ty Lawson embracing bench role with Houston
    Ty Lawson said that coming off the bench in Houston can be a positive as it will give him more opportunity to have the ball in his hands, and play his game.

    Advice: "If I come off the bench, I can have the ball in my hands more and have more opportunity to get in the paint, play my game," said Lawson. "It's good for the team, good for me. Hopefully, this is a transition to getting back to myself, be more aggressive." Lawson hasn't benefited at all statistically with the demotion to the second-unit, averaging a meager 3.3 points and 2.3 assists on 20.0 percent shooting through 17.8 minutes per game. What's troubling is his value could head even further south when Patrick Beverley (ankle) returns to the floor, so he's by no means a must-own player at this juncture. Wednesday, 7:58 am
  • Patrick Beverley's minutes will be monitored
    Interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that he will monitor Patrick Beverley's (ankle) minutes upon his return.

    Advice: Beverley is questionable to play Wednesday against the Grizzlies, but if he does get on to the court following a five-game absence, he will continue to come off the bench and Bickerstaff will be cautious with his minutes. Bickerstaff said he likes the leadership that Jason Terry brings, which is why Terry will continue to start, and it's looking like this could turn into a three-way timeshare at the point guard slot in Houston between JET, Ty Lawson and Beverley; which isn't great from a fantasy standpoint. Wednesday, 7:43 am
  • Al-Farouq Aminu struggles in loss to Bulls
    Al-Farouq Aminu hit just 1-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for five points, six rebounds and a block in Tuesday's loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: AFA had scored in double figures in four straight games and double-doubled in two of them, but couldn't put it in the basket tonight. He should bounce back on Saturday against the lowly Lakers. Tuesday, 10:06 pm
  • Jeff Teague starts, nearly double-doubles
    Jeff Teague started on Tuesday and had 16 points, nine assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 4-of-19 shooting in 26 minutes in a win over the Celtics.

    Advice: Teague's ankle injury appears to be behind him and he should continue to roll as one of the league's more reliable point guards. Tuesday, 8:15 pm
  • Jeff Teague (ankle) will start on Tuesday
    Jeff Teague (ankle) will start against the Celtics on Tuesday, sending Dennis Schroder back to the bench.

    Advice: Kyle Korver, Thabo Sefolosha, Paul Millsap and Al Horford will join Teague in the starting unit for tonight's contest. Teague should see his minutes increased tonight after making it through Saturday's game unscathed, so make sure you have him active. Schroder's value will take a hit as he returns to the bench. Tuesday, 3:27 pm
  • Danny Green scores 18 points
    Danny Green scored 18 points during a win over the Suns on Monday, adding six rebounds, four assists and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Here we go. In his last five, Green averaged 10.6 points, 4.2 boards, 3.0 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.2 steals and 2.2 treys on 40.8 percent from the field. The treys are coming around, but Green just hasn't been getting the defensive stats for some reason. Green still has just 15th-round value on the year, so his owners are still hot little potatoes right now. He should be trending up soon and is not at risk of losing his playing time. Keep him owned in all standard leagues. Monday, 10:58 pm
  • Markieff Morris scores 28 points in loss
    Markieff Morris made 12-of-15 from the field for a season-high 28 points against the Spurs on Monday, adding eight rebounds, four assists, one steal, two 3-pointers and six turnovers.

    Advice: With Eric Bledsoe (knee) out, there were some shots to go around. Morris was one of the worst high-volume players on the season before tonight, but he was one of the best in a losing effort. Morris is coming off a 17-point game on Sunday and should be owned in all leagues after a disastrous start. He also took an elbow to the head, but he's OK. Monday, 10:26 pm
  • Derrick Favors scores 11 with seven boards
    Derrick Favors scored 11 points with seven boards, two assists, two blocks and two steals in 30 minutes in Monday's loss to the Thunder.

    Advice: Considering the game was basically over at halftime, Favors' owners should be thrilled that he still played 30 minutes and turned in a decent line. Rudy Gobert went down with a tailbone contusion, but he should be fine moving forward and both players will need to be on top of their game for Wednesday's contest against the Clippers. Monday, 10:00 pm
  • Omri Casspi gets 27 minutes off bench
    Omri Casspi played 27 minutes off the bench on Monday with six points, five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He played a ton of stretch four tonight, which could continue if DeMarcus Cousins (back, thigh) needs to miss time, Casspi had his best run of the season while Boogie was out, so he's worth a speculative add in 14-team leagues. Boogie shouldn't be out for long, though. Nov 23, 8:30 pm
  • Jeff Teague (ankle) is probable for Tuesday
    Jeff Teague (ankle) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Teague returned to action on Saturday against the Cavs and scored 13 points with one rebound, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes, but he did mention after the game that he was dealing with some tightness in his ankle. He is still fully expected to play, so owners should simply verify his status prior to tip-off before plugging him into lineups. Nov 23, 6:15 pm
  • Casspi starts 2nd half, Cauley-Stein to bench
    Omri Casspi started the second half in place of Willie Cauley-Stein on Monday against the Hornets.

    Advice: Kings head coach George Karl keeps rookie WCS on a very short leash, so don't read too much into this. Casspi is a favorite of Karl's, but his value is held in check when Rudy Gay is active. Nov 23, 5:31 pm
  • Wes Matthews hits four 3-pointers vs. OKC
    Wesley Matthews drained four 3-pointers to finish Sunday's road loss with 18 points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal, and he walked off a hard fall in the fourth quarter.

    Advice: Matthews took a horrible shot just before the final buzzer but most of the night he had it going, a rarity since he came in shooting 33.0 percent on the season. Inconsistency is to be expected as he returns from Achilles surgery, and his owners should note that Dallas plays back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. Nov 22, 6:47 pm
  • Markieff Morris' minutes increase vs Pelicans
    Markieff Morris made only 6-of-15 shots on Sunday but finished with 17 points, one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes.

    Advice: His playing time was down over the past two games so this is a great sign for his frustrated owners -- Jeff Hornacek even left Morris on the court after an ill-advised technical foul in the fourth quarter. Hopefully he can keep this momentum going on Monday. Nov 22, 6:05 pm
  • Blake Griffin scores season-low nine points
    Blake Griffin had one of the worst games of his career during Sunday's loss to the Raptors, scoring a season-low nine points to go with just six rebounds, four assists, two steals and six turnovers through 29 foul plagued minutes.

    Advice: Blake hasn't been held to single digits in the scoring department (while playing at least 25 minutes) since April 17 of 2013, so to say today's performance was unusual would be quite the understatement. The Clippers looked out of sorts through a majority of the game, and foul trouble was the main culprit to Griffin's less-than-satisfactory performance. Look for him to bounce-back in a big way on Tuesday with a favorable matchup against the Nuggets. Nov 22, 4:01 pm
  • Ty Lawson plays 17 minutes off the bench
    Ty Lawson failed to score in 17 minutes off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Knicks, adding two boards, two assists and four turnovers.

    Advice: Lawson's fantasy value is laughable at the moment and he now has averages of 4.8 points and 3.4 assists over his last five games. If you were still contemplating holding onto Lawson prior to Saturday's game, you probably just got your answer. With Patrick Beverley (ankle) hoping to return on Wednesday and the Rockets falling to 5-9 on the season, don't be surprised if Lawson falls completely out of the rotation. Nov 21, 8:47 pm
  • Jeff Teague (ankle) returns to action
    Jeff Teague returned on Saturday during a 109-97 loss to the Cavs on Saturday, scoring 13 points with one rebound, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He said he had some tightness in his ankle after the game, which is to be expected. Teague came off the bench and started the second half after missing three games. He did have some problems with his left ankle last season, but the Hawks are off until Nov. 24 and that should help. His owners will probably want to check back on Monday before setting their lineups. Nov 21, 7:11 pm
  • Jeff Teague starts the second half Saturday
    Jeff Teague started the second half of Saturday's game vs. the Cavs in place of Dennis Schroder.

    Advice: Schroder picked up three fouls in the first half and Teague was playing fantastic, so this isn't a surprise. Teague is going to be the starter going forward anyways, as the Hawks brought him off the bench tonight just to be cautious with him. Nov 21, 5:53 pm
  • Omri Casspi gets 32 minutes off bench
    Omri Casspi scored 11 points off the bench on Saturday against the Magic, adding 11 rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He played a lot of power forward tonight in what turned out to be a lot of small ball in this game. Casspi will be getting plenty of minutes regardless of role for as long as Rudy Gay (shoulder) is out. Gay is only day-to-day, so give Casspi a look if you're looking for some short-term value in the 60-90 range. Nov 21, 5:04 pm
  • Omri Casspi isn't starting for Kings vs. ORL
    Coach George Karl said the Kings will start three guards next to Willie Cauley-Stein and DeMarcus Cousins.

    Advice: Interesting. This could be the coach playing mind games, but if he's telling the truth that would mean Omri Casspi is coming off the bench. Ben McLemore and Rajon Rondo will almost certainly be two of the three guards while Marco Belinelli or Darren Collison will be the third guard -- probably Collison. Still, Casspi has some good value along with a hot B-Mac. Nov 21, 12:51 pm
  • Blake Griffin scores 21 in loss
    Blake Griffin scored 21 points against the Blazers on Friday, adding seven rebounds, seven assists and three turnovers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: He tweaked his left knee and made it back on the court only about five minutes later in real time, so he's fine. Griffin continues to put up massive stats, averaging 26.2 points, 8.6 boards, 4.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.5 blocks on the season. He's putting up first-round value. Nov 21, 12:36 am
  • Markieff Morris gets benched
    Markieff Morris played just 21 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday with nine points, five rebounds, two assists and one block.

    Advice: He didn't play in the fourth quarter as the Suns wanted to get a shooter out there to pull off a comeback. Morris has really struggled on the season and isn't even putting up top 200 value. He still has some upside, but it's really tough to hold him right now in shallower leagues. Nov 21, 12:03 am
  • Wesley Matthews hits 3-of-12 shots in win
    Wesley Matthews couldn't get anything to drop during Friday's win over the Jazz, scoring just seven points on 3-of-12 shooting to go with one assist, one rebound and one block over 32 minutes.

    Advice: Matthews is currently in one of the worst shooting slumps of his career, connecting on just 32.3 percent of his shot attempts through the month of November. It is encouraging to see the veteran earning playing time in the 30s coming off an Achilles injury, but the fact that he's currently only knocking down a mere 25 percent of his wide open looks is a bit concerning. Achilles injuries can be career altering. Nov 20, 11:48 pm
  • Derrick Favors scores 18 pts w/ seven boards
    Derrick Favors scored 18 points on 9-of-14 shooting during Friday's loss to the Mavs, adding seven rebounds, two assists and three turnovers through 36 minutes.

    Advice: Favors is currently hitting career-highs in rebounds (9.3) and steals (2.1) to go with solid averages of 16.0 points and 1.5 blocks on 52.9 percent shooting from the field. That translates to second-round value in standard 9-cat leagues, and third-round value in 8-cat formats, and with absolutely no one behind him to challenge him for playing time there's no reason to believe he can't keep this up. Nov 20, 11:18 pm
  • Danny Green scores six with eight boards
    Danny Green matched a season-high eight rebounds against the Pelicans on Friday with six points, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's finally starting to come around here. In his last five Green has made 45.5 percent from deep with averages of 8.0 points, 4.2 boards, 0.6 blocks and 2.0 treys. He's still been garbage on two-point shots and has no steals, so he's not "back" yet. His minutes are still there and he's still a buy-low player. Nov 20, 9:37 pm
  • Ty Lawson plays just 16 minutes off the bench
    Ty Lawson played a season-low 16 minutes during Friday's loss to Memphis, tallying just eight points on 2-of-6 shooting to go with four assists, one rebound, two steals, one block and one turnover.

    Advice: The defensive stats were nice, but the minutes and shooting percentage were far from encouraging. Since interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff has taken over, Lawson has headed to the bench and his minutes have taken a major hit. Lawson also isn't doing much to prove he belongs on the court, connecting a career-worst 31.8 percent of his shot attempts, and his outlook isn't great with the impending return of Patrick Beverley (ankle). While he shouldn't be this bad for an entire season, he hasn't given his owners many reasons to not send him to the waiver wire. Nov 20, 9:17 pm
