  • Report: Al Horford to BOS a real possibility?
    A deal sending Al Horford to the Boston Celtics is reportedly a "legitimate possibility" according to Chris Mannix of Yahoo! Sports.

    Advice: "I think Boston -- Al Horford is a legitimate possibility for the Celtics," Mannix said. "I think that is the guy, one of the guys across the league that Danny Ainge is the most excited about." Mannix added that while Horford will cost a lot of money to re-sign as a free agent, the Celtics will be willing to foot the bill. Horford does make sense in Boston as Ainge is reportedly looking for a low-post scorer at the deadline, but it's difficult to predict his value in Boston without knowing the moving pieces.

  • Report: Miami interested in Omri Casspi?
    The Heat have reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Omri Casspi.

    Advice: The Heat are looking to add a shooter at the deadline, and Casspi (a 42.2 percent shooter from beyond the arc this season) certainly fits the bill. From a fantasy perspective, however, Casspi's value would take a sizable hit in Miami. Tyler Johnson (shoulder) would reportedly be the guy that would come to Sacramento in a potential Casspi deal.

  • Report: ATL has discussed Oladipo for Teague?
    The Hawks and Magic have reportedly discussed a potential deal involving Victor Oladipo and Jeff Teague.

    Advice: Out of the players being mentioned in potential trades out of Atlanta, Teague's name has come up the most, so he seems the most likely guy to be dealt at the deadline if the Hawks decide to make a move. Orlando wouldn't be the worst landing spot for Teague, but it would be a significant blow to Elfrid Payton's value. Oladipo wouldn't be the main man in Atlanta, so his value could take a slight hit with the Hawks. Dennis Schroder needs to be stashed in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:04 am
  • Marcus Thornton scores 15 off the bench
    Marcus Thornton scored 15 points with three assists, one board, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: Thornton probably deserves more reps in Houston, but coach J.B. Bickerstaff likes Corey Brewer too much. His role has been too sporadic and he's basically a hit-or-miss option every night, so he's hard to rely on in most leagues. He scored a combined nine points in his previous two outings on 3-of-15 shooting. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:20 pm
  • Trevor Ariza scores 19 w/ four treys
    Trevor Ariza scored 19 points with seven rebounds, two steals and four 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: He was coming off a five-point dud vs. the Blazers, so he redeemed himself tonight. Luckily for Ariza, he will get another shot to get revenge against Portland on Wednesday in a game that will have plenty of playoff-race implications. Ariza should be treated as a top-40 player moving forward as long as he continues to start as the stretch four. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:17 pm
  • Corey Brewer scores nine points in loss
    Corey Brewer scored nine points on 3-of-9 shooting with five boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: His coach loves him and said that he's "disruptive" on the defensive end, but he really hasn't looked that good other than a 24-point outburst vs. the lowly Suns on Thursday. Brewer will be on the fantasy radar for any owner in need of steals or 3-pointers as long as he continues to start, but he's better suited for deeper leagues until further notice. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:13 pm
  • Dwight Howard double-doubles vs. Warriors
    Dwight Howard double-doubled vs. the Warriors on Tuesday with 16 points, 15 boards, two assists and one block in 34 minutes.

    Advice: He shot an efficient 7-of-12 from the field, but it was a different story at the charity stripe where he finished just 2-of-10. Howard was shooting 54.9 percent from the line prior to Tuesday, so even this was really bad by his standards. To make matters worse, he turned the ball over four times and will now have to face the Blazers on the second night of a back-to-back set. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:09 pm
  • James Harden drops 37 points in loss
    James Harden (finger) dropped 37 points in Tuesday's loss to the Warriors, adding five boards and five assists in 40 minutes.

    Advice: His finger wasn't an issue tonight and he was very solid on the defensive end with three steals and one block, but his biggest accomplishment was holding Klay Thompson to 13 points on 5-of-19 shooting. Harden hit six 3-pointers in the loss, but he will need to be on top of his game again on Wednesday in a crucial matchup with the Blazers. Both the Rockets and the Blazers have 27 losses on the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:01 pm
  • Andre Iguodala scores 12 points off bench
    Andre Iguodala scored 12 points off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Rockets with six assists, six boards and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: This was his first game with double-digit points since Jan. 22, so this performance doesn't move the needle much for Iguodala. Harrison Barnes is playing well again and the Warriors are healthy, so his production is going to be hard to rely on in standard leagues. He's also a candidate to get a couple of maintenance days down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:52 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) likely out for the season
    Tyreke Evans plans to undergo surgery on his right knee and will likely miss the rest of the 2015-16 season.

    Advice: This is a tough blow for Evans and the Pelicans, but it sounds like the wise decision because there is no reason for him to play at less than 100 percent in what has become a lost season for New Orleans. This could have a significant impact on the Pelicans at the trade deadline as they may be more willing to become sellers. If Evans goes through with the surgery, Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole look like the primary beneficiaries, while Bryce Dejean-Jones could be signed for the remainder of the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:42 pm
  • Warriors make history, improve to 47-4
    Stephen Curry helped the Warriors improve to 47-4 on the season in Tuesday's win over the Rockets, scoring 35 points with nine assists.

    Advice: With the win, the Warriors now have the best start in NBA history through 51 games and they also earned their 42nd-straight regular-season win at home. Curry has been the best player in the NBA and in fantasy basketball this season and this team is determined to beat the Chicago Bulls' all-time record of 72 wins in a season which was set in 1996. Curry added five boards, one steal and seven 3-pointers in 38 minutes and gets a date with the Suns on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Andrew Bogut double-doubles w/ 6 blocks
    Andrew Bogut was phenomenal in Tuesday's win over the Rockets with 13 points, 11 boards, six blocks, three steals, and one assist in 29 minutes.

    Advice: The Blocks were obviously a season high and the 29 minutes were the most he has seen since Jan. 13. The Warriors ramped up his playing time tonight due to the matchup with Dwight Howard, so don't read too much into this line. He was averaging 2.0 points, 6.0 boards, 4.0 assists and 1.0 blocks in 19.0 minutes in his previous two games, so he's not a great add in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:23 pm
  • Marreese Speights plays well off the bench
    Marreese Speights played well off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Rockets, scoring 15 points with four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 12 minutes.

    Advice: He scored 15 points in his last outing and has taken firm control of the backup center spot with Festus Ezeli (knee) out indefinitely. However, Speights is only going to play minutes in the teens on most occasions, so he's not a great add outside of deeper formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Ray Felton scores 17 with nice line off bench
    Raymond Felton hit 5-of-9 shots, a 3-pointer and 6-of-6 free throws for 17 points, seven rebounds, five assists and a steal in Tuesday's overtime loss.

    Advice: He hit a big shot late in regulation to help force overtime and has scored in double figures in four of his last five games. If you need guard help, there's a decent chance he's available in your league. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Zaza Pachulia plays well in loss to Jazz
    Zaza Pachulia had seven points, 11 rebounds and five assists in 41 minutes Tuesday, despite hitting just 1-of-4 shots.

    Advice: He hit 5-of-6 free throws to salvage some scoring, but has cooled off recently. He's scored four points in three of his last five games, including an ejection against the Spurs, he also has three double-digit rebound games in those. The minutes are still there and he should break out of his funk soon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • James Harden (finger) will play vs. Warriors
    James Harden (finger) will play Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Harden is not on the Rockets' injury report, and was a full participant during shootaround, so there's no reason to believe he'll miss Tuesday's matchup against the defending champs. Go ahead and get him active. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:01 pm
  • Report: NO could move Tyreke Evans, Gordon?
    The Pelicans are reportedly open to moving either Tyreke Evans (knee) or Eric Gordon (finger).

    Advice: While Evans' talent is undeniable, his surgically repaired right knee has become a major issue, so the Pelicans may be willing to move on from the oft-injured guard. The same can be said for Gordon, as he has never made it through a full 82-game season, so it'll be interesting to see if New Orleans makes a move at the deadline. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:44 pm
  • Report: IND interested in Teague, Hill swap?
    The Pacers have reportedly reached out to the Hawks regarding a potential Jeff Teague, George Hill trade.

    Advice: Teague's value could take a hit in Indiana as he'd be fighting for touches with Paul George and Monta Ellis on offense, so this wouldn't be an ideal landing spot for Jeff. The trade rumors have been swirling around Atlanta's Big Three, and it seems likely that at least one of the core players for the Hawks is dealt at the deadline. The Magic, Jazz and Knicks have also expressed interest in Teague, so Dennis Schroder needs to be stashed in most leagues at this point. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:37 pm
  • Report: Atlanta could blowup team at deadline
    The Hawks are reportedly considering trading away their core players of Al Horford, Paul Millsap and Jeff Teague at the trade deadline.

    Advice: The Hawks haven't been able to recapture the magic from last year's 60-win season, and it's clear that while they're a playoff team, they are no championship contender. Horford is in a contract year, and Atlanta may not be willing to sign him to a max-deal this offseason. The Magic, Celtics and Nuggets have reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Horford, and Atlanta is also listening to offers on Teague and Millsap. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:17 am
  • Al Horford bounces back in loss
    Al Horford scored a team-high 27 points during a 117-110 overtime loss to the Magic on Monday, adding six rebounds, three assists, two blocks, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

    Advice: He was 12-of-18 from the field and hit both free throws for an eight-category line. Horford was putting up an underwhelming February before this gem, averaging 12.3 points, 5.8 boards, 4.5 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 treys. He's been a top-20 player this year and that should continue. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:09 pm
  • Jeff Teague scores 21 points vs. Magic
    Jeff Teague scored 21 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Magic on Monday.

    Advice: It's probably safe to say Teague is back. In his last five, the 2014-15 All-Star averaged 20.6 points, 3.4 assists, 5.0 blocks, 1.4 steals and 2.6 treys on 53.5 percent from the field. Teague has third-round value in that span and looks to be out of his season-long slump. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:06 pm
  • Zaza working on his jumper
    Zaza Pachulia has been working with Holger Geschwindner on improving his shot.

    Advice: Geschwinder is close to Dirk Nowitzki and is known for calculating optimum angles of jump shots. Pachulia is only making 32.7 percent of his jumpers on the year, so he definitely can improve there. His fantasy value has really taken a tumble and he's more of a low-end asset. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:20 am
  • Al Horford scores 11 points with two blocks
    Al Horford struggled with his shot during Sunday's loss to the Magic, going 5-of-15 from the field on his way to 11 points, six rebounds, six assists, two blocks, one 3-pointer and zero turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Horford isn’t the most exciting guy to own, but his solid percentages (on most nights), limited turnovers and relatively high assist numbers (3.1) for a big man has him churning out second-round value on the year. He’s also incorporated a 3-point shot to his game, draining 1.0 triple per contest, and he’s yet to miss a single game for Atlanta. He’s the captain of team boring for early-round studs. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:40 pm
  • Jeff Teague scores 24 points with five dimes
    Jeff Teague hit 10-of-17 shots for 24 points on Sunday, to go with five assists, three 3-pointers, one rebound, one steal and an unfortunate five turnovers through 35 minutes of action.

    Advice: Teague did briefly exit the game after getting hit in the left side, but he played through it and it didn't look like an injury that would force him to miss any time. Jeff has been playing much better over the past two weeks, putting in averages of 17.3 points, 5.4 assists, 1.6 three-pointers, 1.9 steals and 3.0 turnovers per game on 53.8 percent shooting, which has been good enough for second-round value in standard leagues. Dennis Schroder no longer seems to be a threat to Teague's minutes. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:28 pm
  • James Harden (finger) says he is fine
    James Harden (finger) believes that he should be all right.

    Advice: "My middle finger bent back," Harden said. "It's swollen a little bit, but it should be all right." Harden didn't play down the stretch in Sunday's game vs. the Blazers, but it was likely due to the lopsided score and he said that it would've have been "pointless" for him to keep playing. Harden should be considered day-to-day, but it would be surprising if he didn't play vs. the Warriors on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:21 am
  • Stephen Curry scores 26, Warriors beat OKC
    Stephen Curry scored a team-high 26 points during a 116-108 win over the Thunder on Saturday, adding six rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: OKC held Steph in check for just his second game with just one 3-pointer this season. The Warriors were still able to get a win after blowing an 18-point lead and are currently on pace for the best record ever at 46-4. As for Curry, that one trey makes it 121 consecutive games with one triple while he also became No. 3 on the franchise's all-time steals list. He is making last year's MVP run seem ordinary. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:46 pm
  • Raymond Felton scores 16 points off bench
    Raymond Felton scored 16 points off the bench on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies with seven boards, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Wesley Matthews was benched down the stretch and finished with just eight points, but coach Rick Carlisle was simply riding the hot hand in Felton. He scored just six points in his previous outing in 21 minutes, so he would have to do this again to be on the radar in standard leagues. To be clear, Matthews' spot in the lineup is not in jeopardy. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:14 pm
  • Trevor Ariza finally cools off
    Trevor Ariza scored five points with five rebounds, four steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: At least the steals were there in Ariza's worst game since the lineup change. Before this dud, he was putting up first-round value as the starting power forward. Keep him active and it's fair to expect him to be a top-40 player going forward. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:04 pm
  • Dwight Howard scores 17 in 41 minutes
    Dwight Howard played 41 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday with 17 points, 14 rebounds, two assists and four steals.

    Advice: The minutes are a good sign for Dwight and his minutes cap is obviously gone. Howard even played in garbage time tonight, so that's a ringing endorsement of his current health. He gets a fun matchup against the Warriors on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:02 pm
  • James Harden scores 33, hurts right hand
    James Harden suffered an apparent minor right hand injury on Saturday, finishing with 33 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block, four 3-pointers and 10 turnovers.

    Advice: He had ice on his hand for most of the fourth quarter because the Rockets were blown out tonight. Harden did play through his hand issue for a few minutes before going to the bench, so chances are this is minor. He also took the ice pack off his hand for the final two minutes. For now, there shouldn't be much concern, but you never know when it comes to a hand injury. We'll pass along any info if he needs an X-ray. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:36 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) out until All-Star break
    Tyreke Evans (knee) has been shut down until the All-Star break.

    Advice: "Hopefully he’ll be ready to go right after the All-Star break and we’ll be able to play him for the rest of the stretch [of the schedule]," coach Alvin Gentry said. His owners should stash him in an IR spot, but it's still possible that he could be shut down during the final weeks of the season if the Pelicans are not in the playoff hunt. In the meantime, Bryce Dejean-Jones will continue to start and is worth a look in deeper leagues. Jrue Holiday will benefit as well. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:15 pm
  • Bickerstaff praises Corey Brewer
    Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that Corey Brewer is "disruptive" on the defensive end.

    Advice: "He's disruptive," Bickerstaff said. "When he's able to get steals, that's when his offense starts. His offense starts on the defensive end of the court. It's a steal for us. It's a defensive rebound for us and then it's a quick outlet. When we're getting stops, that's when [Brewer] is at his best." Brewer scored 24 points against the Suns on Thursday and is still starting at small forward, but he was struggling prior to that game. Unless he does this again, he's better suited for deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:57 am
  • Zaza Pachulia gets ejected on Friday
    Zaza Pachulia was ejected from Friday's game vs. the Spurs after picking up his second technical foul.

    Advice: The game was a blowout and Zaza let his frustrations get the best of him. He'll end his night with four points, two rebounds, two assists and two turnovers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:14 pm
  • Al Horford scores 21 points in win
    Al Horford scored 21 points with seven rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer against the Pacers during a 102-96 win on Friday.

    Advice: Yes, there is a reason why any team would love to have Horford on their squad. He's grown as a 3-point shooter, is a very good defender and is one of the most efficient players without requiring a high usage. Horford is just coasting along with top-20 value on the season. He also had an awesome dunk (in link below). Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:46 pm
  • Jeff Teague scored 16 points vs. Pacers
    Jeff Teague made 5-of-9 from the field for 16 points with five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

    Advice: It's not a great game, but it's not a step back. Teague has been in a solid groove in his last five, averaging 18.6 points, 2.8 boards, 5.2 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.8 treys on 52.2 percent form the field. Believe it or not, Teague has posted second-round value in the last seven games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:35 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) ruled out for Saturday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday against the Cavs.

    Advice: The Pelicans are talking about a shutdown, but it's not in their plans right now. There's a decent chance we don't see Evans back out there this week. Bryce Dejean-Jones was very good on Thursday and should get more starts. Norris Cole also benefits and hopeful he can stay out of foul trouble. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:23 pm
  • Rockets gauging interest in Dwight Howard?
    According to Yahoo Sports, the Rockets have been gauging interest in Dwight Howard.

    Advice: The Celtics were one of the teams involved, but those talks have cooled because they don't want to part with any of their key assets or picks. The Rockets have downplayed the rumors, but if they didn't then that would reduce their leverage in trade talks. Howard is 30 years old with back and knee concerns, so several teams around the league would be hesitant to take a chance on him, especially considering he will be a free agent this summer. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:58 am
  • James Harden scores just 17 points
    James Harden was quiet during a 111-105 win over the Suns on Thursday, scoring 17 points with nine rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 4-of-19 from the field.

    Advice: Interestingly, coach J.B. Bickerstaff pulled all of his starters four minutes into the the game because of sloppy play. They obviously turned it around, though. Harden usually lights up the Suns and he is also solid on the road, so this is a shocking letdown. He'll be fine and should be a top-five player going forward in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:30 pm
  • Trevor Ariza goes off again, scores 22
    Trevor Ariza went off again with 22 points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and three 3-pointers against the Suns on Thursday.

    Advice: He was killer as a power forward last year with Kevin McHale, but now he's rolling in that role again with coach J.B. Bickerstaff. Since being shifted to power forward back on Jan. 22, he averaged 17.9 points, 4.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 2.4 steals and 3.8 treys. That's good for top-10 value in that span and has boosted him to fourth-round value on the year now. If you bought low, you look really smart. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:26 pm
  • Corey Brewer scores game-high 24 points
    Corey Brewer scored a game-high 24 points against Suns on Thursday with one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: The Rockets scored 26 points in fast break, so that kind of output there is right up Brewer's alley. In his previous starts, Brewer only has averages of 9.6 points, 3.4 boards, 1.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 treys on 38.8 percent from the field. If you want to ride him while he's played better, hopefully you're not dropping anything of value. He's not an add in standard leagues yet. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:15 pm
  • Dwight Howard scores 5, doesn't get ejected
    Dwight Howard scored five points with 16 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in 33 minutes against the Suns.

    Advice: Hey, at least he didn't get ejected tonight. Howard's minutes were solid at 33, but Alex Len played nice defense on him. He'll be fine as long as he avoids getting more technical fouls. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:08 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) out for Thursday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will not play against the Lakers on Thursday.

    Advice: Coach Alvin Gentry was asked about a shut down and said they are evaluating it, but it's not in the plan right now. Evans hasn't warmed up in over a week and the Pelicans haven't set a date for him to return. Bryce Dejean-Jones will get a start and hopefully the Pelicans don't play Toney Douglas 22 minutes like they did on Wednesday. Norris Cole and Jrue Holiday should be locked into lineups. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:58 pm
  • Report: Rockets intend to keep Dwight Howard
    The Rockets reportedly have no intention of trading away Dwight Howard.

    Advice: Howard's name has been popping up in the rumor mill as of late, but for now, it would appear that the trade speculation involving big D-12 is nothing more than rumors. Howard would prefer to remain in Houston, and one source of ESPN insists that the Rockets have yet to have any "meaningful conversations" regarding Dwight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:19 pm
  • Tyreke Evans doubtful for Thursday vs Lakers
    Tyreke Evans (knee) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Lakers.

    Advice: Evans sat against the Spurs on Wednesday, so it wouldn't be a huge shock to see him sit again on Thursday. We'll keep an eye out for his status, but it looks like Bryce Dejean-Jones will get another start while Norris Cole and Jrue Holiday would also benefit from Evans' absence. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:32 am
  • Marcus Thornton enjoys playing next to Harden
    Marcus Thornton expressed his desire to play more alongside James Harden.

    Advice: Thornton played alongside Harden more on Tuesday and responded with 18 points off the bench. "I was talking about that this morning," Thornton said. "I love playing with James. Teams are more focused on him. That gives me wide-open shots. In return, I can play-make for him and get him wide-open shots, too." Thornton may get an opportunity to play more alongside Harden, but his minutes are too inconsistent to warrant a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:56 am
  • Dwight Howard shoots down trade rumors
    Dwight Howard attempted to shoot down trade rumors involving the Celtics.

    Advice: There had been reports that the Celtics were interested in acquiring Howard's services, but D-12 did his best to downplay those rumors. "There's always going into be rumors and speculation," Howard said. "I don't want to pay attention to it. I didn't say it. What can I do? There's nothing I can say." Howard can opt-out of his contract after the season, so there is some incentive for the Rockets to explore his trade value. For now, fantasy owners should continue to start Howard as long as he's healthy as he's averaging 14.4 points, 11.8 rebounds, 1.6 blocks, and 1.0 steals on 60.8 percent shooting from the field. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:46 am
  • Zaza Pachulia double-doubles for Mavs
    Zaza Pachulia played 39 minutes and had 10 points, 15 rebounds, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.

    Advice: Pachulia might be the most surprising fantasy center of the season and is showing no signs of slowing down. He's averaging 7.8 points and 11.0 rebounds over his last five games, and racked up his 22nd double-double of the season tonight. More blocks would be nice, but not bad for a guy you likely picked up off waivers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:06 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 51 with 11 triples
    Stephen Curry scored 51 points during a 134-121 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, seven turnovers and a career-high-tying 11 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was a ridiculous 13-of-14 from the field in the first half with eight treys, which gave him a laughable 121.4 effective field goal percentage. Curry was coming off his worst game of the season from an efficiency standpoint, but he definitely got it right back. He became the first player to hit more than 10 treys in multiple games. Get ready for a great game on Saturday night with Steph vs. Russell Westbrook. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:20 pm
  • Jeff Teague quiet in blowout win vs. Philly
    Jeff Teague finished Wednesday's blowout win with 10 points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 23 minutes of action.

    Advice: It's a disappointing follow-up to Teague's 32-point eruption on Monday, but he actually played the second-most minutes of any starter, behind only Paul Millsap (10 points, four boards in 25 minutes). He's trending upward despite a cloud of trade rumors that will follow him until the deadline on Feb. 18. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:18 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) out for Wednesday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will not play against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was doubtful to play and will miss his fourth game. The Pelicans need to start winning games to prevent Evans from being a shut-down candidate. It'll be Bryce Dejean-Jones starting while Norris Cole also benefits. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:12 pm
  • Al Horford not concerned with rumors
    Al Horford said he's not concerned with the trade rumors.

    Advice: "This is my team," Horford said. "I feel like Atlanta is my home so my focus is on the team. I’m not going to pay attention to all of that." He might be the best player who has been even mentioned in trade rumors, but he'll have solid fantasy value wherever he goes for his across-the-board output and stellar efficiency. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:18 pm
  • Report: Dwight Howard to Boston unlikely
    The reported talks between Boston and Houston revolving around Dwight Howard are unlikely to advance past the discussion phase, according to sources of A. Sherrod Blakely.

    Advice: Boston is reportedly looking to add a low-post scorer so that they can become more efficient in halfcourt sets, but both health and attitude concerns for the 30-year-old veteran have the Celtics hesitant to give up much to land big D-12. He's also likely to opt-out of his contract this offseason in order to hit free agency, so it doesn't seem likely that the Celtics will give up meaningful assets for what could be a half-year rental.

  • NBA rescinds one technical foul for Howard
    The league has decided to rescind one technical foul for Dwight Howard, bringing his total for the season down to 11.

    Advice: Howard is going to need to do a much better job of controlling his emotions as he was ejected in back-to-back games to close out the month of January, and he was also suspended for Tuesday's game for making contact with an official during Saturday’s loss to the Wizards. If D12 gets to 16 techs, he'll face another one-game suspension. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:58 am
  • Report: Boston interested in Dwight Howard?
    The Celtics have reportedly reached out to the Rockets to discuss the availability of Dwight Howard.

    Advice: At 30 years old, and set to hit free agency this offseason, Dwight isn't a great fit at all with the Celtics. It doesn't seem very likely that Celtics GM Danny Ainge would be willing to give up much to land the Houston big man, so it doesn't seem likely that anything will come of this report.

  • Marcus Thornton scores 18 off HOU bench
    Marcus Thornton got hot and hit 7-of-11 shots and four 3-pointers for 18 points, five rebounds, three assists and a steal in Tuesday's win.

    Advice: Thornton didn't even play on Saturday and scored two points in each of his previous two games, so if you had him in a DFS lineup tonight, pat yourself on the back. He goes on hot streaks occasionally, but has been far too inconsistent to plug into a standard lineup. And he was also up for some extra run tonight with Dwight Howard suspended and Clint Capela out with a thigh injury. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:30 pm
  • James Harden hands out season-high 14 dimes
    James Harden hit 10-of-19 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 26 points, four rebounds, a season-high 14 assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday's win over the Heat.

    Advice: It wasn't a 40-point bomb like he dropped on Saturday, but it was pretty darn good. And don't look now, but he's hit at least half his shots in four of his last five games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:24 pm
  • Trevor Ariza scores 9, but fills stat sheet
    Trevor Ariza hit just 4-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer, but finished Tuesday's game with nine points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block.

    Advice: He wasn't great tonight, but did a little bit of everything, salvaging a decent line. He was red hot a week ago, but has scored nine or fewer points in three of his last four games. He should go on another hot streak at some point, but it's anyone's guess as to when it happens. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:19 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) doubtful Wednesday vs. SA
    Tyreke Evans (right knee) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Evans has missed the past three games do to tendinitis in his surgically repaired right knee, and it's looking like that number will hit four on Wednesday. Bryce Dejean-Jones should continue to start with Evans out, with Jrue Holiday being asked to do more on offense. Check back for official confirmation on Evans closer to Wednesday's tip. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:37 pm
  • Dwight Howard suspended for Tuesday vs MIA
    Dwight Howard has been suspended for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

    Advice: Howard will miss Tuesday's game for contacting an official during Saturday's game against the Wizards. Howard will be back for Thursday's game against the Suns, while Clint Capela, Josh Smith, and Terrence Jones will all see a boost in value on Tuesday night. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:57 am
  • Jeff Teague explodes for 32 points in win
    Jeff Teague made 12-of-15 from the field for a season-high 32 points during a 112-97 win over the Mavs on Monday, adding five rebounds, eight assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: His five treys were a season high to go with a wonderful 96.7 effective field goal percentage. After a month-long slump, here comes the 2014-15 All-Star with averages of 19.0 points, 2.4 boards, 6.2 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.8 treys in his last five. He's put up second-round value in that span, so anyone who bought low last week probably feels great. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:42 pm
  • Al Horford scores 10 in sub-par game
    Al Horford scored 10 points with four rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: The trade rumors are starting to heat up on Horford with him heading into free agency. Horford is having a great year as an offensive weapon thanks to extending his range. He put up top-15 value last month thanks to doing a little bit of everything. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:33 pm
  • Ray Felton gets 25 minutes
    Raymond Felton moved back to the bench against the Hawks on Monday with 13 points, one rebound, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Deron Williams (hip) getting hurt should open up a few extra minutes for Felton. Plus, he might get added run if the Mavs rest Dirk Nowitzki on Friday or Saturday. Barea is still the better pickup, but give Felton a look. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:12 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) ruled out on Monday night
    Tyreke Evans (knee) will not play against the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: There is nothing structurally wrong, but the Pelicans likely want all of his tendinitis to go away. With Evans out, it'll be Bryce Dejean-Jones starting while Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole also benefit. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:22 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) likely won't play Monday
    Tyreke Evans (knee) likely won't play vs. the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: The Pelicans are going to be cautious, but the team is saying that he could play if it was a playoff game. Evans is a shut-down candidate unless the Pelicans can get back into the playoff hunt, so his owners should be concerned. Bryce Dejean-Jones should get another start, while Jrue Holiday and Norris Cole will both benefit. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:27 pm
  • Report: Jazz 'considering' Jeff Teague trade
    The Jazz are "indeed considering" a Jeff Teague trade, multiple sources told KSL.com.

    Advice: There has been a lot of smoke behind this particular rumor, and while it makes sense on the surface for both teams, there has been "no formal contact" made between the two sides. However, the trade deadline is now less than three weeks away, so expect the hot stove to heat up in the near future. One potential issue is Teague's "recurring left ankle injury, the result of spraining it multiple times over the past two seasons." Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 7:14 am
  • Kerr compares Curry to Price and Steve Nash
    Steve Kerr recently compared Stephen Curry to Mark Price and Steve Nash for his offensive abilities.

    Advice: "The two guys I’d maybe compare him the most to are Mark Price and Steve Nash in terms of the combination of ball-handling and passing and shooting range and creativity," Nash said. "But Steph has taken it to a new level. But he’s taken it to a new level in terms of just the range, the ballhanding and creativity. It’s pretty special." We agree, coach. We agree. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 5:57 am
  • Stephen Curry struggles vs. the Knicks
    Stephen Curry struggled against the Knicks on Sunday, scoring 13 points on just 5-of-17 shooting.

    Advice: The Warriors got off to a brutal start to the game and had their lowest-scoring quarter of the season with 18 in the first, but they still got the job done to secure their seventh straight win. The Warriors are now 44-4 on the season and Curry will look to get back on track vs. the Wizards on Wednesday. He added four boards, four assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes. He has a minor cut on his forehead, but he's obviously going to be fine. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:19 pm
  • Zaza Pachulia grabs 15 rebounds in 36 minutes
    Zaza Pachulia looked great in 36 minutes vs. Phoenix, grabbing 15 rebounds with nine points, two assists and one steal.

    Advice: Chandler Parsons referred to Zaza as "a walking double-double" after Friday's game, and the veteran center is one of only 10 players averaging 10+ points and 10+ rebounds this season. He's been a top-75 roto value and is no longer limited by his sore Achilles, which makes him safe to deploy in all formats. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:16 pm
  • Raymond Felton logs 36 minutes w/ Dirk out
    Raymond Felton started in place of Dirk Nowitzki (rest) on Sunday, notching 10 points, six rebounds, six assists and three steals without any turnovers in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Dirk has missed six games this season, with five of those DNPs coming during back-to-back sets. The Mavs play another back-to-back on Feb. 5/6, so Felton could earn another start if Nowitzki's four-game week is trimmed to three. The veteran guard is still just an occasional punt option in DFS leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:16 pm
  • Andre Iguodala plays 23 minutes in win
    Andre Iguodala (rest) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday vs. the Knicks and finished with eight points, four assists, four boards and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

    Advice: He hit his only two shot attempts from the field and had a couple of turnovers, but the Warriors didn't really need him tonight because they took care of business early on. Iguodala was averaging 6.6 points, 4.0 boards, 3.4 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.7 3-pointers during the month of January prior to Sunday, so he's not a must-own player in standard leagues while the Warriors are healthy. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 6:58 pm
  • Raymond Felton will start on Sunday
    Raymond Felton will start on Sunday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Dirk Nowitzki (rest) is getting the night off, so Chandler Parsons will start at power forward and Wesley Matthews will move to the three. Felton has been solid this season, but he's nothing more than a short-term option in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 3:58 pm
  • Harden drops 40, Rockets lose third straight
    James Harden dropped 40 points in Saturday's 123-122 loss to the Wizards, adding 11 assists, seven boards, four steals and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: The Wizards had no answer for him on the defensive end and he even fouled Garrett Temple out of the game. The Rockets have lost three straight games, but Harden has been playing some incredible ball with averages of 30.2 points, 8.6 boards, 7.6 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 3.0 treys over his last five games.
