    • Report: Collison (hip) likely done for season
      Darren Collison will reportedly undergo surgery to repair a core muscle injury on Tuesday, and he will likely remain sidelined for the remainder of the 2014-15 season.

      Advice: Collison will be re-evaluated in 3-6 weeks after undergoing surgery, but with the fantasy playoffs looming and multiple reports stating that his season is likely over, it's probably safe at this point to drop Collison in standard leagues. Ray McCallum and Andre Miller will split minutes at the point guard spot with Collison sidelined, but neither guy makes for a strong add in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • James Harden questionable for Friday vs Nets
      James Harden (ankle) did not practice on Thursday, and is questionable for Friday against the Nets.

      Advice: With Dwight Howard (knee) already out and Patrick Beverley (illness) also questionable, missing Harden on Friday would be a big blow to the Rockets. We'll update his status as soon as possible, but some combination of Trevor Ariza, Josh Smith, Jason Terry, and Beverley (if he plays) would have to pick up the slack for Harden if he has to sit out on Friday.

    • DeMar DeRozan shares Lowry's trash sentiments
      Using Kyle Lowry's recent comments as a jumping off point, DeMar DeRozan said his game is right in the trash next to Lowry's.

      Advice: DeRozan's recent play hasn't taken as big of a dip as Lowry's, but his averages of 17.2 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 2.2 assists over his last five games are all down from his season averages. While DeRozan doesn't provide much in terms of peripheral stats, he's still a solid top-75 fantasy player due to his ability to score in bunches. Rotoworld.com

    • Steph Curry says foot feeling better
      Steph Curry (ankle) said his foot is feeling "pretty solid" and that it has responded well to treatment.

      Advice: Curry dropped 32 points with five three-pointers and eight assists on Tuesday, so his recent play certainly backs up his statement. The Warriors have a brutal schedule coming up with four games in each of the next five weeks, but a healthy Curry could pay huge dividends for his fantasy owners with that much game volume on the horizon.

    • Kerr planning to rest Andre Iguodala
      Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said he's planning to give Andre Iguodala some rest in the near future.

      Advice: Iguodala won't sit against the Cavaliers on Thursday, so we'll likely see him get a rest day on Friday or Sunday. Harrison Barnes will get a small bump in fantasy value on whichever day Iguodala sits, but the value boost will only last for one game. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 9:45 am
    • Rest on the horizon for Andrew Bogut
      Steve Kerr said he will rest Andrew Bogut during the Warriors' upcoming stretch.

      Advice: Kerr did add that Bogut will play against the Cavaliers on Friday, so it's likely we'll see him sit on Friday or Sunday. Marreese Speights stands to benefit from Bogut's upcoming rest, so daily gamers will want to keep an eye on this situation in order to maximize Speight's value. Rotoworld.com

    • James Harden limps out of arena after win
      James Harden suffered an ankle injury in the fourth quarter and played through it during a big 110-105 win over the Clippers on Wednesday, scoring 21 points with four rebounds, 10 assists and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: "It’s pretty sore right now, but I’ll get some rest tonight and ice it," Harden said. "Hopefully be ready to go Friday." He limped out of the arena and he is likely going to be on the injury report for Friday's game against the Nets. Meanwhile, Harden finally stuck it to the Clippers. In his career, the Clippers kept Harden to an NBA-low 13.4 points per game before tonight. He is leading the NBA in VORP (value over replacement player) and is right at the top of the list for MVP candidates. Rotoworld.com

    • Darren Collison (hip) could be out for year
      The Kings do not have much optimism that Darren Collison (hip flexor strain) will return this season, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

      Advice: He traveled to see a specialist in L.A. and apparently it did not go well. Following an initial MRI, the Kings called Collison "doubtful" to play back on Feb. 6, so this news would be a surprise. Fantasy owners should start planning on Collison missing extended time and he's not a must-own player if you really need to make a move for a hot free agent. Ray McCallum would gain the most value and is worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Ingles finally cools off in loss to Lakers
      Joe Ingles, who has seemingly been playing over his head for weeks, missed his only shot and didn't score in 15 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: He did have a steal and a block, but the return of Rodney Hood is eventually going to hurt him, and it looks like we saw the start of that tonight. Elijah Millsap also got hot and scored a career-high 17 points tonight, which is the real reason Ingles never really got back into the game. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:58 pm
    • Jordan Hill scores 16 points in win
      Jordan Hill hit 7-of-12 shots for 16 points, five rebounds, two steals and a block in 27 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

      Advice: Robert Sacre failed to even score as the starting center, and it makes little sense that Hill isn't starting. He's averaging 12.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, a steal and a block since returning from a hip injury, and is worth a look if you need a big man (and you might if you own Jusuf Nurkic, who went down an ankle injury tonight). Rotoworld.com

    • Wayne Ellington plays 38 minutes w/o Young
      Wayne Ellington played a team-high 38 minutes on Wednesday and had 15 points, 10 rebounds and two assists on 5-of-12 shooting.

      Advice: We were expecting more shots and some threes with Nick Young out (knee), but a double-double works, as well. Ellington had been slumping over his last couple games, but with a season-high 10 boards and heavy minutes, could be ready to get hot again for the Lakers, who have somehow won two straight basketball games. And in case you're wondering about the two-game winning streak, just four NBA teams have a winning streak longer than the Lakers - OKC, Cleveland, Houston and New Orleans. Rotoworld.com

    • Omer Asik double-doubles in win
      Omer Asik had 12 points, 13 rebounds and a block in Wednesday's win over Brooklyn, the third straight for the short-handed Pelicans.

      Advice: They continue to try to track down OKC for the No. 8 seed in the West, but they got a serious uphill climb in actually making the playoffs. But as long as Anthony Davis is out, Asik should ball, and he's now double-doubled in two straight games, and just missed a third with 15 points and nine rebounds. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:59 pm
    • Dante Cunningham plays well in start
      Dante Cunningham started and hit 6-of-11 shots for 13 points, seven rebounds, two steals and a block in 33 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: With Ryan Anderson and Anthony Davis out, Cunningham is getting some run, but this was one of his best games of the season, and it's unlikely that he'll play this well on most nights. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:57 pm
    • Markel Brown starts again, scores eight
      Markel Brown started at shooting guard again on Wednesday, but had just eight points, four rebounds, three steals and a block on 3-of-9 shooting.

      Advice: He played 30 minutes, but this was a far cry from his 10 points, 11 rebounds, four steals and two blocks he posted in Monday's start. And with Jarrett Jack back from his hamstring injury, the arrow is pointing down on Brown. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:41 pm
    • Ricky Rubio posts typical Rubio line in win
      Ricky Rubio hit just 2-of-9 shots for six points, seven rebounds, eight assists and four steals.

      Advice: This line is precisely what Rubio does, and is basically what owners should expect to get when they plug him into a lineup. Solid assists and steals, serviceable rebounds, and poor shooting and scoring. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:18 pm
    • Kevin Martin still hot, scores 28 in win
      Kevin Martin kept it rolling on Wednesday, hitting 10-of-15 shots and two 3-pointers for 28 points and two steals in an easy win over the Wizards.

      Advice: He's on fire and has scored 21 or more points in six straight games. If you stuck with him through the wrist debacle, he's paying off down the stretch. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:15 pm
    • Jerami Grant plays career-high 33 minutes
      Jerami Grant played a career-high 33 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday with 10 points, two rebounds, two blocks, two steals, two 3-pointers and a career-high four assists.

      Advice: He started the second half for Robert Covington, but this is unlikely to stick with Covington likely just benched for this game. Grant is making a charge for minutes and he would have played a lot more on Sunday had he not suffered a back injury. He is capable of filling it up in several categories, averaging 1.0 blocks, 0.7 treys and 0.6 steals in just 18.7 minutes per game this season. He's worth a look in 14-team leagues, especially for points leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 8:02 pm
    • Jerami Grant (back) expected to play on Wed
      Jerami Grant (back) is expected to play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

      Advice: He will go through warmups and the team will hopefully update his status. Grant would likely benefit from K.J. McDaniels being shipped to Houston and he could consistently get minutes in the mid 20s. He doesn't shoot the ball well enough to be a factor in standard leagues, but he is an interesting guy in DFS with his cheap price. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:39 pm
    • DeMar DeRozan, Lowry shoot combined 11-of-36
      DeMar DeRozan scored 18 points on 7-of-21 shooting in Tuesday's road loss, while backcourt partner Kyle Lowry scored 11 points on 4-of-15 shooting.

      Advice: DeRozan's fantasy value has tumbled thanks to career-low 39.6 percent shooting this season, and he's been slow to regain his All-Star form since returning from a groin injury in mid-January. He's still a steady top-75 producer in most formats, however, and an uptick in his offensive numbers would vault him into the early rounds. Rotoworld.com

    • Stephen Curry (ankle) scores 32 pts in return
      Stephen Curry (ankle) was back in Golden State's starting lineup on Tuesday, dropping 32 points, five 3-pointers, eight assists and two steals in 34 minutes of action.

      Advice: He didn't commit any turnovers while shooting 11-of-18 from the field and 5-of-5 from the FT line. It's safe to conclude that his ankle is healthy. Curry's fantasy owners can look forward to a torrid stretch during the fantasy playoffs, as Golden State plays four games in each of the next five weeks. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 6:41 pm
    • Andrew Bogut whisper-quiet in 20 minutes Tues
      Andrew Bogut played a small role vs. Washington, scoring two points with two rebounds and one assist in just 20 minutes of action.

      Advice: Bogut racked up three fouls during his limited time on the court and quickly gave way to Marreese Speights, who scored 16 points off the bench. Wizards' opponents average 40.8 rebounds per game this season, fourth-lowest in the NBA, but the Warriors scratched out a road win on Tuesday despite being out-rebounded by a margin of 29-45.

      Tuesday, 6:29 pm
    • Darren Collison (hip) ruled out for Wednesday
      Darren Collison (hip) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

      Advice: He will reportedly meet with a specialist in Los Angeles, so we will pass along any additional updates as soon as we know more. Collison has been sidelined since Feb. 5th, and with season averages of 16.1 points, 5.6 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game, his owners can only hope to get some good news soon with fantasy playoffs looming. Ray McCallum will likely draw another start on Wednesday, but he will likely split minutes with veteran Andre Miller, meaning they are only worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 4:41 pm
    • Stephen Curry (ankle) will start Tuesday
      Updating a previous report, Stephen Curry (ankle) will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Wizards, sending Shaun Livingston back to the bench.

      Advice: The matchup is an irrelevant factor for Curry as he can easily go off for 50 points on any given night, so go ahead and get the MVP candidate back in your active lineups for what should be an exciting, uptempo game with the Wizards. Livingston's return to the bench will make him a negligible asset in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 3:23 pm
    • Stephen Curry (ankle) expected to play Tues.
      Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr said, "It looks like Stephen [Curry] is going to play," Tuesday vs. the Wizards.

      Advice: All signs are pointing towards Curry giving it a go, and it's all but official at this point. Owners can feel confident plugging Curry into their active roster tonight, and we'll let you know if anything changes. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 3:07 pm
    • Steph Curry probable for Tues vs Wizards
      Steph Curry (ankle/foot) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards, according to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.

      Advice: This is great news for Steph's fantasy owners after he was forced to miss Sunday's game with a sore right foot. We'll update his status closer to game time, but Curry can be safely plugged back into fantasy lineups while Shaun Livingston will return to a bench role. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:01 am
    • Ingles back to posting versatile lines
      Joe Ingles scored 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 27 minutes on Monday against the Spurs.

      Advice: Ingles started to make some noise before a back injury derailed him, and factoring in the games in which he struggled with it he has been a top-125 guy over the last eight contests. We know he's not exactly a household name but he's worth a look in competitive formats. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 10:25 pm
    • Asik double-doubles in win over the Raptors
      Omer Asik double-doubled in the Pelicans' 100-97 win over the Raptors on Monday, scoring 14 points on 4-of-6 shooting (6-of-10 FTs) with 11 rebounds and two blocks.

      Advice: Asik has a window to produce with Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson out, but his stat set is terrible for standard leagues due to a lack of defensive stats and poor free throw percentage. If everything is clicking he can be a late-round value in 8-cat leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:19 pm
    • Markel Brown stuffs stat sheet in first start
      Markel Brown played a whopping 45 minutes in his first start of his NBA career against the Nuggets on Monday, scoring 10 points with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and four blocks.

      Advice: He had career highs in every stat mentioned above except assists. After playing a combined 29 minutes in his previous nine games, Brown was unleashed tonight. He is the first Net to post a double-double in his first start since Terrence Williams in 2009 and will probably have another chance to get another one. Brown won't be this good, but his athleticism is something the Nets have been missing on the wing. He's worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:13 pm
    • James Harden scores 31, triple-doubles
      James Harden strengthened his case for MVP during a 113-102 win over the Wolves on Monday, scoring 31 points with 11 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, four blocks and five 3-pointers.

      Advice: He's just the sixth player since 1985 to put up a 30-point triple-double with at least four blocks. The Rockets didn't have Patrick Beverley (illness) tonight and it was all Harden all the time. Harden's numbers in his last 10 are ridiculous, averaging 27.1 points, 6.8 boards 7.0 assists, 1.9 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.7 treys. He and Russell Westbrook are the two biggest stat machines in the NBA. Rotoworld.com

    • Ricky Rubio plays 39 minutes
      Ricky Rubio played 39 minutes against the Rockets on Monday with 14 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and four steals.

      Advice: He made just 2-of-9 from the field and made all 10 from the line. Rubio has been flirting with triple-doubles in each of his last two games and he's obviously had his minutes restriction dropped. He won't shoot the ball well, but all the other stats should be there. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:15 pm
    • Dante Cunningham starting on Monday night
      Dante Cunningham will start against the Raptors on Monday.

      Advice: The Pelicans have lost their depth at power forward, so Alexis Ajinca will be come off the bench to back up Omer Asik. Cunningham rarely puts up numbers in any stat category, so Ajinca is the better option in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 3:51 pm
    • Jerami Grant (back) out, Mbah a Moute in
      Jerami Grant (back) will not play against the Heat and Luc Mbah a Moute (personal) will play.

      Advice: Grant suffered the injury on Sunday and should be considered day-to-day. Mbah a Moute was playing well before his Sunday absence and he should get minutes. With Grant and Jason Richardson (knee) out, Hollis Thompson and JaKarr Sampson should play a little more. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 3:15 pm
    • Darren Collison (hip) to see a specialist
      Darren Collison (hip flexor) will travel to Los Angeles to see a specialist.

      Advice: It doesn't sound like he's going to play against the Grizzlies on Wednesday. Collison has been out for almost three weeks and he doesn't have a timetable to return. His owners should just bench him for now and hope we get good news in the next couple days. With Collison out, Ray McCallum has played minutes in the 20s, but he's not a great add in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 1:41 pm
    • Jerami Grant (back) questionable for Monday
      Jerami Grant (back) is questionable to play against the Heat on Monday.

      Advice: He suffered the injury yesterday, which was too bad considering he was looking at extended minutes with Luc Mbah a Moute out. If Grant doesn't play, there should be more playing time for JaKarr Sampson and Hollis Thompson. Plus, Henry Sims should play more because Nerlens Noel will likely play more power forward and Robert Covington also playing more on the wing. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 12:27 pm
    • Stephen Curry questionable for Tuesday night
      Stephen Curry (ankle/foot) went through Monday's practice, but he's already being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

      Advice: In other words, the Warriors just don't know enough yet to make a determination one way or another, but it's good news that he was able to practice on Monday. After missing Sunday's contest, Curry could very well be headed for a game-time call on Tuesday. The Warriors will not do anything to jeopardize their MVP candidate's health as the team prepares for a postseason push. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:48 am
    • Stephen Curry (sore right foot) is day-to-day
      Head coach Steve Kerr said that Stephen Curry (sore right foot) will be fine and that he is considered day-to-day.

      Advice: Kerr also said that Curry was sore during warmups so he opted to hold him out of the game as a precaution, so it sounds like the injury is very minor. Curry's next chance to play is on Tuesday against the Wizards, so hopefully the MVP candidate is able to suit up for that one. Shaun Livingston will continue to start if Curry misses any more time, but after scoring just eight points with five boards, two assists and one block in 26 minutes against the Pacers on Friday, he's only worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 6:49 pm
    • Jerami Grant exits Sunday w/ bruised back
      Jerami Grant (lower back contusion) will not return to Sunday's game.

      Advice: He took a hard fall in the first half and may have also hurt his left knee, but he was initially slated to return and fortunately the injuries don't sound serious. Grant has sneaky upside for 3-pointers and defensive stats, but he can't be relied upon while his minutes are fluctuating in a bench role. JaKarr Sampson and Hollis Thompson should gain the most if Grant can't suit up vs. the Heat on Monday. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 4:34 pm
    • Stephen Curry (right ankle) will not play Sun
      Updating a previous report, Stephen Curry (sore right ankle) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pacers.

      Advice: Unfortunately this is the same ankle that Curry had surgery on earlier in his career, and hopefully this doesn't turn into a lingering issue. We'll be following this situation closely, and it's looking like Shaun Livingston is going to slide into the starting lineup tonight with a favorable matchup against the Pacers. Klay Thompson is going to be the main man on offense with Curry sidelined, while guys like Harrison Barnes, David Lee, Andre Iguodala, and Draymond Green will see some increased touches. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 1:58 pm
    • Stephen Curry (foot) questionable for Sunday
      Stephen Curry tweaked his foot stepping on somebody during Friday's game against the Spurs, and he is currently testing it in warmups before he decides whether he will be able to go for Sunday's game against the Pacers. Rotoworld.com

    • James Harden scores 20 points in win
      James Harden scored 20 points to snap a two-game losing streak during a 98-76 win on Saturday over the Raptors, adding five rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

      Advice: He has multiple steals in each of his last six games and climbed to No. 3 in the league in steals because of it. In that span, he averaged 28.8 points, 6.8 boards, 6.7 assists, 2.2 steals and 2.5 treys on 47.0 percent from the field and 78.0 percent from the line. Harden also has an identical assist percentage and usage rate in that span at 30.5 while the Rockets are running at a pace of 101.6 possessions per 48 while he's out there -- the Warriors lead the NBA in pace at 101.1 per 48. Harden is an MVP candidate. Rotoworld.com

    • Omer Asik just misses a double-double
      Omer Asik scored 15 points against the Heat on Saturday during a 105-91 win with nine rebounds, two assists and one steal.

      Advice: It was one of his best games in a while. Even with the Pelicans missing Ryan Anderson (knee) and Anthony Davis (shoulder) before, Asik hasn't put up scoring numbers like this one. He is worth a look in standard leagues now, but the upside isn't too high. Rotoworld.com

    • Dante Cunningham starting second half
      Dante Cunningham started the second half at power forward on Saturday, finishing with seven points, four rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 27 minutes.

      Advice: With Anthony Davis (shoulder) and Ryan Anderson (knee) out, there are going to be some minutes available at power forward. However, Cunningham doesn't really do anything on the stat sheet and starting the second half tonight may have been matchup-based, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues. Alexis Ajinca is the guy we'll watch tonight and is worth a look. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:07 pm
    • Darren Collison (hip) out again on Saturday
      Darren Collison (hip) will not play against the Clippers on Saturday night.

      Advice: It will be his sixth game out of the lineup due to his strained hip flexor, but he should have a chance to play in the Kings' next game on Wednesday. With Collison out, Ray McCallum and Andre Miller will likely split the point guard minutes down the middle. It doesn't really matter much for fantasy owners because Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins will get most of the shots. For what it's worth, they had a combined usage rate of 61.3 on Friday. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 12:52 pm
    • Markel Brown may have a larger role soon
      After scoring a career-high nine points with two boards, one assist and one steal in 15 minutes during Friday's win over the Lakers, Markel Brown may have earned himself a larger role in the rotation.

      Advice: "I like Markel," said coach Lionel Hollins. "He's been playing extremely well in practice lately and I wanted to give him a chance to go out there." Brown got some extra run on Friday with Jarrett Jack nursing a hamstring issue, so owners in deeper leagues can simply just keep an eye on him for now. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 8:07 am
    • Hill (hip) returns with a double-double
      Jordan Hill (hip) returned to action on Friday against the Nets, scoring 12 points on 5-of-15 shooting with 10 rebounds, one steal and one block in 29 minutes.

      Advice: Hill was a winner at the deadline by not being traded, though he wasn't really a given to get sent elsewhere. He should mostly survive the random rotations, but with the Lakers playing for a draft pick these days they may choose to be ultra-cautious with him. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 2:19 am
    • Ellington (illness) can't find the range
      Wayne Ellington (illness) couldn't find the range in Friday's 114-105 loss to the Nets, missing all seven 3-point attempts and hitting just 3-of-10 shots overall for eight points, one assist and two steals in 21 minutes.

      Advice: Ellington has played well enough over the last month to earn the benefit of the doubt, even against the backdrop of Bryon Scott's rotations and lack of his own history as a productive fantasy play. There is also an illness to consider and the fact that Scott appears to favor Ellington, but the rope is also pretty short here if this keeps up. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 2:12 am
    • Stephen Curry scores 25 points in win vs. SA
      Stephen Curry made scoring 25 points against the reigning champs look easy during a 110-99 win on Friday, adding four rebounds, 11 assists, four steals and four 3-pointers.

      Advice: He only had two turnovers, so his mom owes him money. Curry logged his first double-double since Jan. 25 while his defense on Tony Parker was a big story from tonight, too. The Warriors are out of their little funk from earlier this month, have built a 4.5 game lead over Memphis, and are in great position before they head on their six-game road trip. Curry is amazing. Rotoworld.com

    • Ingles scores eight points with two threes
      Joe Ingles (back) returned to action in Friday's surprisingly easy win over the Blazers, scoring eight points on 3-of-6 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes.

      Advice: This harkens back to some of his other versatile showings before he started to slide and ultimately get injured. There wasn't a ton of upside to begin with, but if he can do this again owners might want to give him a look. Rotoworld.com

      Kevin Martin scored 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting (1-of-6 3PTs, 7-of-9 FTs) with six rebounds, two assists and one steal in Friday's win over the Suns.

      Advice: Martin doesn't look like he's going to get bought out and he's at peak production levels right now. If your league's trade deadline hasn't passed, you're running out of time to sell high. Rotoworld.com

    • DeRozan goes for 21 and eight with a trey
      DeMar DeRozan scored 21 points on 9-of-16 shooting (including a three) with eight rebounds, one assist and three steals in Friday's win.

      Advice: DeRozan has had a disappointing season and a small buy low window might still be open. He has mid-round potential. Rotoworld.com

    • Jerami Grant scores 16 points off bench
      Jerami Grant scored 16 points off the bench on Friday against the Pacers with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

      Advice: You could make an argument that the 76ers wouldn't have traded K.J. McDaniels if they didn't have confidence in Grant here. He was very quiet heading into the break, but the Philly haphazard play has led to some nice block and steal totals. He's worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Joe Ingles (back) will start at SG on Friday
      Joe Ingles (back) will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game against Portland, sending Elijah Millsap back to the bench.

      Advice: With Rodney Hood also returning to action tonight, Millsap's days of relevancy in deep leagues are likely numbered. Ingles is averaging 6.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game as a starter, so he can be viewed as a low-budget plug-and-play option in daily leagues.

    • Ricky Rubio gets a bump in minutes cap
      Ricky Rubio will have his minutes cap increased t the low 30s on Friday.

      Advice: He did play 32 minutes in his last game, so he'll likely be in that area tonight. Rubio should be more responsible for scoring on offense with Thaddeus Young gone, but he'll still be a pass-first PG. Rotoworld.com

    • Darren Collison (hip) out for Friday night
      Darren Collison (hip) will not play on Friday against the Celtics.

      Advice: He has a hip flexor injury, which can cause players to miss multiple weeks in some cases. Collison should also be considered slightly doubtful to play on Saturday. Ray McCallum, who has played 48 minutes in an NBA game twice last season, should start and see massive minutes. David Stockton will back him up. Rotoworld.com

    • Jordan Hill (hip) coming off bench vs. Nets
      Jordan Hill (hip) will come off the bench in his return to the lineup on Friday against the Nets.

      Advice: The Lakers will start Jordan Clarkson, Wayne Ellington, Ryan Kelly, Tarik Black and Robert Sacre. Hill looked terrific just before his hip flexor strain, scoring 26 points with 12 rebounds on Jan. 29. He's already proven he's capable of being a strong fantasy asset with minutes in the mid-20s, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Darren Collison (hip) hopeful to play Friday
      Darren Collison (hip) was unable to go through a full practice on Thursday, but he is hopeful to play Friday vs. the Celitcs.

      Advice: Owners can expect to get another update on Collison following Friday morning's shootaround, and if he's unable to go, Ray McCallum will get all the run he can handle in a favorable matchup against the Celtics. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Ellington (illness) expected to play Friday
      Wayne Ellington (illness) was a full participant during Thursday's practice, and he will play Friday vs. the Nets.

      Advice: Ellington was forced to sit out of Wednesday's practice, but all signs are pointing towards him being able to give it a go on Friday. He'll have a very favorable matchup against the Nets, and he should make for a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues on Friday. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 1:21 pm
    • Jordan Hill (hip) expected to play Friday
      Jordan Hill (hip) was again able to go through a full practice on Thursday, and he is expected to be available for Friday's game against the Nets.

      Advice: Hill will likely return to the starting lineup, which will send either Tarik Black or Robert Sacre back to the bench. If Hill was dropped in your league, now would be the time to get him as he's averaging 12.3 points and 8.0 rebounds per game on the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Darren Collison (hip) doubtful to play Friday
      Darren Collison (hip) appears doubtful to play on Friday, according to Kings beat writer Jason Jones.

      Advice: Collison was limited on Wednesday and there's still a chance that he can suit up vs. the Celtics, but owners should prepare to be without him for another game. Ray McCallum could wind up playing heavy minutes if Collison can't suit up, especially if newly-acquired Andre Miller isn't ready to play. Rotoworld.com

    • Darren Collison (hip) still limited in practice
      Darren Collison (hip) was limited in practice on Wednesday.

      Advice: It doesn't sound like he is going to play on Friday. That's interesting because the Kings may also deal Ramon Sessions, which means Ray McCallum may see major minutes. The second-year guard hasn't made any strides this season, averaging 4.4 points, 1.8 boards, 1.5 assists and 0.4 steals in 14.1 minutes per game this season. He's only worth a look in deep leagues while Collison owners should plan on benching him. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 6:56 pm
    • Joe Ingles (back) goes through practice
      Joe Ingles (back) went through practice on Wednesday.

      Advice: He should be ready to go for the weekend. Rodney Hood is getting closer to a return, so Ingles probably won't see minutes over 20 for long. In his last three games, he averaged 5.0 points, 3.3 boards, 2.3 assists and 0.3 steals. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: 'No way' Kevin Martin gets bought out
      The Wolves said there's "no way" Kevin Martin is going to be bought out, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

      Advice: Coach Flip Saunders loves Martin, but of course this could be a way to build a little bit of leverage in the trade market. If Martin isn't bought out, that will make Shabazz Muhammad slightly less appealing. Martin would also have much more value on the Wolves than almost any other team. Rotoworld.com

    • Jordan Hill (hip) practices on Wednesday
      Jordan Hill (hip) went through practice on Wednesday and is expected to play on Friday.

      Advice: He suffered a strained hip flexor on Feb. 1 and has been out since. Hill will likely move back into the starting lineup, which will push Robert Sacre back to the bench. Hill put up a 26-point game in his last effort before the injury, so he is worth grabbing in standard leagues now that he is somewhat healthy. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 1:09 pm
    • Wayne Ellington (illness) misses practice
      Wayne Ellington (illness) was not at practice on Wednesday.

      Advice: He should be considered questionable to play on Friday against the Nets. Ellington has been busy in his last five, playing 33.8 minutes per game with averages of 15.0 points, 4.6 boards, 1.4 assists and 2.6 treys. He's worth a look in standard leagues and his owners will want to check back for an update tomorrow. If he's out, expect to see more action from Ryan Kelly, Jordan Clarkson, Jeremy Lin and maybe Nick Young (ankle). Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Martin could pursue buyout with Wolves
      Kevin Martin could pursue a buyout with the Wolves if he is not traded before the Feb. 19 trade deadline according to Ken Berger of CBS Sports.

      Advice: The Wolves are currently rebuilding for the future, so they will likely do everything they can to deal Martin to a contender for picks or younger prospects before they simply buy him out. Martin would likely use a lot of value if he is traded, so his owners may want to consider selling high while they still can. Shabazz Muhammad would become a must-own player if Martin leaves Minnesota, so it wouldn't be the worst idea to take a flier on him with the deadline quickly approaching. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Jordan Hill would like to remain with LAL
      Jordan Hill stated during a recent interview that his preference would be to remain with the Lakers.

      Advice: "I want to be here [in Los Angeles]," said Hill. "I want to be a in a steady place I call home." Hill is currently in an ideal situation playing for the tanking Lakers, and he is averaging career-highs in points (12.3) and rebounds (8.0). If he is moved before the deadline, it will open up more minutes for Carlos Boozer, Ed Davis, and Tarik Black, and his value would likely take a hit. Rotoworld.com
