  • Norris Cole (finger) will play Tuesday
    Norris Cole (finger) will play Tuesday, and is expected to start.

    Advice: Cole had an impressive 23-point debut on opening night, but since then he's failed to eclipse 12 points. Cole is averaging just 7.4 points, 3.5 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game as a starter, and he's just not worth owning in standard leagues. His return will likely translate to a loss of playing time for Shabazz Napier, making Napier an unattractive option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Mo Williams (illness) doesn't practice Tues.
    Mo Williams (illness) was not able to practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: This is the second consecutive practice that Williams has sat out, and it's not known whether he'll be able to suit up for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks. If he's unable to go Zach LaVine would get all the minutes he can handle, and he could make for a nice low-budget option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Joakim Noah (eye/knee) questionable Tuesday
    Joakim Noah (eye/left knee) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Denver.

    Advice: It's worth noting that Joakim's left knee is the one that was surgically repaired this offseason, so we'll be monitoring this situation closely. If Noah sits out, Nikola Mirotic would likely slide into the starting lineup, and would serve as an excellent plug-and-play option in daily leagues against a weak Denver interior defense. Check back for an official update on Noah's status as we draw closer to Tuesday's tip. Rotoworld.com

  • Boozer (shoulder) misses Tuesday's practice
    Carlos Boozer (shoulder) did not practice on Tuesday, and remains questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Memphis.

    Advice: If Boozer is unable to go, Ed Davis (ankle) will draw another start. Davis struggled with foul trouble during his last outing, fouling out in just 22 minutes of action, but if he can get that under control he could provide some nice value in the blocks category. Davis figures to be a low-end option in standard leagues as the starting power forward for the Lakers, but a matchup vs. Memphis isn't exactly alluring. Rotoworld.com

  • Omer Asik (back) is hopeful to play on Tues.
    Omer Asik (back) said that he will to try to play Tuesday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Asik has missed four consecutive games with this back injury, but he was able to practice on Monday. Still, owners will want to check back closer to tip-off for an official update on his status. If Asik is unable to go, Alexis Ajinca would likely draw another start at center, but Ryan Anderson is the one who gains the most when Asik is sidelined. Rotoworld.com

  • Xavier Henry out for season following surgery
    Xavier Henry underwent surgery to repair his torn left Achillies on Tuesday morning, and he will be sidelined for the remainder of the 2014-15 season.

    Advice: Henry will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but after injuries held him to just 43 games last season, and a mere nine this year, he may have a tough time landing his next deal. Henry's 9.5 minutes per game will be distributed to Jordan Clarkson and Wayne Ellington, but neither guy can be considered an attractive option in standard leagues while Kobe Bryant is healthy.

  • Raymond Felton tweaks ankle, not serious
    Raymond Felton tweaked his right ankle during Tuesday's practice, but according to head coach Rick Carlisle, the minor tweak is not considered serious.

    Advice: Raymond Felton is fighting for minutes with Devin Harris, Jameer Nelson, Monta Ellis, and J.J. Barea, and he wasn't even able to get off the bench during his last outing. Felton should remain on the waiver wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 12:04 pm
  • Darren Collison (quad) questionable Tuesday
    Darren Collison (quad contusion) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: If Collison is unable to go, Ramon Sessions (right knee strain) would slide into the starting lineup, and would make for a solid plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Sessions put up 18 points, three rebounds, and two 3-pointers during his last start, but he also failed to register a single assist making him a more attractive option in points leagues. Ray McCallum would also see some extended run off the bench. Rotoworld.com

  • Nene's absence could mean Beal starts
    With Nene expected to miss a few games with a foot injury, it's possible the Wizards are ready to start Bradley Beal over Garrett Temple.

    Advice: As Kyle Weidie notes, the Wizards will miss Nene's passing skills and his absence could be the impetus to get Beal back into the starting unit sooner than later. Rotoworld.com

  • Mitch McGary (foot) nearing a return
    Mitch McGary is nearing a return to action from a foot injury.

    Advice: He should be back in the "near future" according to coach Scott Brooks, but he's going to have a very limited role for the banged up Thunder. Rotoworld.com

  • Rudy Gay (Achilles) will not play on Tuesday
    Rudy Gay (Achilles) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Omri Casspi and Derrick Williams will likely split minutes at small forward tonight, but Casspi is the more alluring option as he's posted a usage rate of 18.8 playing next to Darren Collison, DeMarcus Cousins, and Ben McLemore this season. He's capable of hitting 3-pointers in bunches, and has a favorable matchup tonight vs. the Pelicans, so Casspi could make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kris Humphries is likely to start on Tuesday
    Kris Humphries may start against the Hawks on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's going to be him or Drew Gooden in place of Nene (foot) tonight. Humphries has played well in his brief time on the court with averages of 6.8 points, 4.7 boards and 0.5 blocks in 15.6 minutes. He should get minutes in the 20s tonight, which makes him a low-end stream play or an option in daily fantasy leagues. Check back later tonight for the starting lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:09 am
  • Pelicans likely to start Darius Miller
    The Pelicans are expected to start Darius Miller in place of Eric Gordon (shoulder) on Tuesday against the Kings.

    Advice: Tyreke Evans will move over to shooting guard, which is a position he thrived in last season. Obviously, Miller is not going to be the main answer here with several DNP-CDsm only 7.3 minutes per game and shooting just 25.0 percent this season. In fact, his big outlier was a 17-minute outing during the Pelicans beatdown of the Wolves 139-91 back on Nov. 14. He's only worth a look in an extremely deep league. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 8:43 am
  • Otto Porter goes through shootaround
    Otto Porter (hamstring) went through shootaround on Tuesday and is a game-time decision to face the Hawks.

    Advice: Going through shootaround usually means a player will go and he said he can "definitely" go, but Porter is a little different considering how he's aggravated his hamstrings before. Fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting much from him anyway now that Bradley Beal is back. Plus, Martell Webster (back) is getting closer, too. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin has wrist surgery, out 6-8 weeks
    Kevin Martin had surgery on his right wrist on Tuesday and will miss the next 6-8 weeks.

    Advice: The surgery was successful and Martin should be back on the court for January. The Wolves get Thaddeus Young back and he will likely be a huge part of the offense. Andrew Wiggins will also get to show what he can do while Corey Brewer has been bringing the ball up, as well. Fantasy owners can cut Martin if they don't want to wait. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) ruled out for Tuesday
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not play against the Warriors on Tuesday.

    Advice: This will be his seventh game out of the lineup and at this rate he's going to play even less games than his 54 from last season. Wade does not have a timetable to return and his owners should have him benched until he's back on the court. Mario Chalmers has really stepped up lately while the Heat will use plenty of two-point guard lineups. Rotoworld.com

  • Chris Andersen (ankle) could be out awhile
    Chris Andersen (ankle) "will be out for awhile," according to coach Erik Spoelstra.

    Advice: This explains why the Heat added Hassan Whiteside and they're extremely thin up front. Andersen owners can cut him loose and there should be more from Udonis Haslem and Justin Hamilton. Whiteside is likely just an emergency guy. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut is expected to play on Tuesday
    Andrew Bogut (eye) is expected to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: He went through shootaruond today and most signs point to him play. Bogut has a bruise to his eye socket, so this isn't like a muscle pull or a sprain, which means it shouldn't affect how the Warriors treat his minutes. Those who picked up Marreese Speights may have to reconsider using him tonight, but they will definitely want to check back later for an update. Rotoworld.com

  • Norris Cole (finger) likely to play on Tuesday
    Norris Cole (finger) went through shootaround and is expected to play on Tuesday night.

    Advice: The writing was kind of on the wall when the Heat released Shannon Brown yesterday. Cole should be able to play his normal allotment of minutes, which means Shabazz Napier could lose some playing time. On the other hand, Mario Chalmers has played superb ball and will likely have a similar role even with Cole back. Rotoworld.com

  • Favors goes for 21 and 15 against the Bulls
    Derrick Favors scored 21 points on 10-of-17 shooting with a season-high 15 rebounds and one steal in Monday's 97-95 loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: Favors is up-and-down a little bit but he's more or less playing near his ADP. He's averaging 15.6 points, 8.4 boards and a combined 2.2 steals and blocks per game, which has returned top 50-60 value on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:05 pm
  • Kanter has productive night against Bulls
    Enes Kanter scored 19 points on 9-of-13 shooting with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block over 33 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: Kanter is averaging just 0.2 steals and 0.2 blocks per game, so if you're using him you probably wanted to uncork some cheap champagne tonight. He's more of a 14-team guy given his lack of statistical upside in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:03 pm
  • Noah leaves briefly with eye injury
    Joakim Noah left Monday's game with an eye injury but eventually returned and finished with four points, five rebounds, four assists and one block in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Noah is probably going to be a disappointment for anybody burning a high mid-round pick and that's before we talk about any injury risk. Unless you hear otherwise, feel free to have him in lineups for Tuesday's game in Denver. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:51 pm
  • Jimmy Butler on the loose again on Monday
    Jimmy Butler scored 25 points on 8-of-16 shooting (1-of-2 from deep, 8-of-9 from the line) with two rebounds, two assists and four steals in Monday's win.

    Advice: We keep waiting for Butler's shooting to fall at least a little bit but it just doesn't happen. Playing at a top 10-15 level, he has a heavy lift to stay in that lofty space. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:47 pm
  • Mirotic mildly productive in 28 minutes
    Nikola Mirotic scored 10 points on 4-of-9 shooting with two threes, five boards and one assist in 28 minutes off the bench on Monday.

    Advice: This was the fear in making a big play for Mirotic -- that Pau Gasol would return and negate the opportunity created by Taj Gibson's injury. Tom Thibodeau doesn't sound convinced that Gasol (calf) will play in Denver on Tuesday so there is some hope for another chance, and for what it's worth Joakim Noah played through a minor eye injury tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:44 pm
  • Felton a DNP-CD on Monday
    Raymond Felton returned from his suspension but did not play on Monday due to coach's decision.

    Advice: Felton will only be on the fantasy radar if the Mavs suffer a number of injuries. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Stuckey (wrist) productive in busy 32 minutes
    Rodney Stuckey (wrist) logged 32 minutes on Monday against the Mavs, scoring 12 points on 2-of-9 shooting (2-of-3 from deep, 6-of-6 from the line) with three rebounds, five assists and one steal.

    Advice: Given his inability to stay healthy the heavy workloads recently are an uncomfortable bonus, so give him a look in deeper formats but don't drop anybody of real value just yet. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:55 pm
  • Motiejunas nears solid double-double vs. NY
    Donatas Motiejunas scored 13 points on 6-of-12 shooting with eight rebounds, one steal, one block and one three in 32 minutes against the Knicks.

    Advice: Motie beating up on the Knicks and getting his usually non-existent peripheral stats isn't swinging the pendulum here, but he has been much more productive than he usually is lately. With Terrence Jones (leg) out long-term and Dwight Howard (knee) a question mark at this moment, we're all on the hunt for the beneficiary and right now Kostas Papanikolaou has a much better stat-set to get the job done with. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Canaan quiet in start for Beverley
    Isaiah Canaan was quiet in another start for Patrick Beverley (hamstring) on Monday, scoring seven points with three assists and a steal in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Canaan hit 2-of-8 shots with a three and on the whole he doesn't have any real fantasy value. If you want to give him a desperation look or use him in DFS games, he's probably a coin flip to pay off at best. Beverley has about a week on his initial timetable. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Kevin Martin (wrist surgery) out six weeks
    Kevin Martin (wrist) will have surgery on his wrist and miss the next six weeks.

    Advice: He played through this wrist fracture in his 37-point explosion against the Knicks. Martin just can't stay healthy and there's nothing wrong with cutting him considering how long he's out. Corey Brewer, Andrew Wiggins and Chase Budinger will benefit. Rotoworld.com

  • Ray Felton is active on Monday night
    Raymond Felton will not play against the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: He is eligible to return, but the Mavericks don't need him. They've been one of the best offenses in the history of the NBA, so why mess with a good thing? Felton has very little fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:28 pm
  • Darren Collison, Sessions are questionable
    Darren Collison (quad) and Ramon Sessions (knee) are questionable to play against the Pelicans on Tuesday.

    Advice: He has a contusion to his thigh and he was able to play through it on Saturday. Collision has been a pleasant surprise with 30 assists to go with just five turnovers. if he and Sessions are out, Ray McCallum will be logging some serious minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Rudy Gay listed as questionable for Tuesday
    Rudy Gay (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Tuesday to face the Pelicans.

    Advice: He is still dealing with right Achilles tendinitis and this issue is not going to go away any time soon. Gay does sound like he has a chance to play, but his owners will want to check back to see if he goes through shootaround. If he's out, Omri Casspi will start. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Canaan will start on Monday night
    Isaiah Canaan will start on Monday night against the Knicks.

    Advice: It will be his seventh start of the season, but he hasn't done much in his previous starts with averages of 11.5 points, 2.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.3 triples. The triples make him someone worth owning in deeper leagues right now, especially with Pat Beverley (hamstring) possible out for a while. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:24 pm
  • Xavier Henry suffers torn left Achilles
    Xavier Henry has suffered a torn left Achilles and will miss the rest of the season.

    Advice: He just can't catch a break and it's become really easy to root for him. Henry had a knee injury keep him out for much of last season and also tore ligaments in his wrist at the end of the season. His days with the Lakers are likely over and he may have a tough time catching on with any NBA team next season. Hopefully, he proves everyone wrong. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut goes through a light practice
    Andrew Bogut (eye) went through a light practice on Monday and remains questionable for Tuesday against the Heat.

    Advice: Going through practice is big for Bogut and it does sound like he could play. However, the Warriors didn't really miss him with Marreese Speights playing out of his mind. Owners in weekly leagues should probably consider benching him while Speights carries a lot of risk. The Warriors do have four games this week, so that makes the decision a little tougher.

  • Carlos Boozer misses practice on Monday
    Carlos Boozer (shoulder) missed practice on Monday.

    Advice: He missed Sunday's game against the Nuggets despite being listed as probable. Boozer has been a guy who usually takes a lot longer to get over his injuries, so there is a chance he sits on Wednesday against the Grizzlies. If that is the case, Ed Davis (ankle) and Robert Sacre will get some more playing time. Jordan Hill also played a ridiculous 42 minutes on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Xavier Henry may have ruptured left Achilles
    Xavier Henry may have suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon and is getting an MRI.

    Advice: This is just not right for Henry. He's had multiple severe knee injuries and just can't stay on the court. Hopefully the MRI comes back negative, but the Lakers haven't had the best luck with MRIs in the past two seasons. Wayne Ellington and Jordan Clarkson may get more run without Henry, but neither are fantasy options. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin set for doctor visit on Monday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is visiting a doctor on Monday.

    Advice: The team should announce his prognosis shortly after, but it's likely going to be at least a month. Andrew Wiggins is rolling and is coming off a career-high 29 points on Saturday while Corey Brewer and Chase Budinger will also benefit. Martin isn't a must-own player right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Mo Williams misses practice on Monday
    Mo Williams missed practice on Monday due to an illness.

    Advice: The Wolves don't play until Wednesday when they'll host the Bucks, so Williams should be well enough to give it a go for that contest. They are headed to a three-game week, so Williams isn't the strongest play in the world in weekly leagues anyway. If for some reason he is out, Zach LaVine would likely get minutes in the high 30s.

  • Otto Porter is a game-time call on Monday
    Otto Porter (hamstring) is a game-time decision for Tuesday against the Hawks.

    Advice: He was able to go through practice today and he's likely a little closer to probable. Porter had some major issues with is hamstrings in his first offseason in 2013, so the Wizards will likely be careful. Paul Pierce may get a few more minutes coming off a tremendous game on Saturday.

  • Otto Porter (hamstring) practices on Monday
    Otto Porter (hamstring) was able to practice on Monday.

    Advice: Porter was able to practice in full, so we expect him to be fully ready for the Wizards' next game on Tuesday. It's been an inconsistent season for Porter who has failed to live up to some of the preseason hype. Rotoworld.com

  • Omer Asik gets in some practice on Monday
    Omer Asik (back) was able to get in some practice on Monday.

    Advice: Asik's back has been an issue for a week now, so it's good to see him get in some practice. It's nebulous as to what exactly he was able to do, but some progress is better than no progress. We'll consider him iffy for Tuesday's game against the Kings. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey upgraded to probable Monday
    Rodney Stuckey (left wrist) has been upgraded to probable on Monday after going through shootaround on Monday.

    Advice: Previously listed as questionable, Stuckey's probable designation is a good indication that he'll give it a go. Now that he's healthy enough to play, he'll look to build on the meager production he's amassed so far this season. We'd like to see him stay healthy and be a lot more efficient before recommending him as a fantasy play, but that may be asking too much. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:31 am
  • Raymond Felton's ankle now fully healthy
    Raymond Felton (ankle) said that he's fully healthy following his suspension.

    Advice: It's not a lock that Felton will return on Monday, but he's healthy enough to do so and his suspension has ended. Even if active, Felton has a lot of work to do as he's currently at the bottom of the point guard depth chart behind Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris and J.J. Barea. Rotoworld.com

  • Joakim Noah calls Mirotic a difference-maker
    Joakim Noah said Nikola Mirotic is a "difference-maker at the offensive end."

    Advice: Mirotic balled out on Friday without Taj Gibson (ankle) and Pau Gasol (calf) available with 24 points, 11 rebounds and four 3-pointers, but he's going to need injuries ahead of him to produce like that regularly. He has an offensive game that's very capable of helping fantasy teams, but he's limited by his current role. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut iffy Tues. w/ orbital contusion
    Andrew Bogut (orbital contusion) is questionable to play vs. the Heat on Tuesday, but a CT scan on his head was negative.

    Advice: Bogut scored two points in eight minutes before leaving Sunday's game with the injury, but the good news is that he avoided any fractures or structural damage. He wrote on Twitter that he had a "bit of fluid" but should be fine. If he can't suit up on Tuesday, Marreese Speights would be a terrific fill-in start vs. Miami's lenient frontcourt. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Boozer (shoulder) ruled out vs. Denver
    Carlos Boozer (shoulder) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Advice: He was listed as probable after missing Saturday's practice, was downgraded to questionable on Sunday afternoon, and ultimately ruled out an hour before tip-off. Ed Davis will get the start at PF in his absence, which should shore up the Lakers' leaky interior defense, and he's worth spot-starting as long as Boozer is sidelined. Rotoworld.com

  • Andrew Bogut leaves with orbital contusion
    Andrew Bogut suffered an orbital contusion during Sunday's game, and he will not return.

    Advice: It's not entirely clear when he suffered the injury, but with luck the bruise won't cause him to sit out Tuesday vs. the Heat. If he does miss more time, Marreese Speights would likely start at center with Festus Ezeli as his primary backup. Rotoworld.com

    Chris Andersen went down during the Heat-Hornets game with a sprained right ankle, and he will not return.

    Advice: Andersen limped his way to the locker room and the injury looked ugly enough that it's unsurprising to see him ruled out for the night.

  • Norris Cole (finger) out Sunday vs. Charlotte
    Norris Cole (finger) will not play Sunday vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Chalmers will draw the start at point guard tonight with Cole sidelined, and he has a favorable matchup vs. the Hornets. Shannon Brown will likely draw another start at shooting guard, and Shabazz Napier will also get some additional run off the bench. Chalmers is looking like a must-start guy for Sunday, and Napier is coming off two solid games making him an attractive plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Brown logged 36 minutes in his last outing, but was only able to turn in seven points and two assists, making him a risky daily league option. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) out Sunday vs. CHA
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: That's six games and counting for Wade, and he remains without a definitive return date. Mario Chalmers has been the main beneficiary of Wade's absence, and he's currently averaging 19.3 points, 5.3 assists, 1.8 steals, and 1.3 three-pointers with the starting unit. Norris Cole (finger) has also been ruled out for Sunday's game, so Chalmers is going to get all the minutes he can handle. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (wrist) questionable for Mon.
    Rodney Stuckey (sprained left wrist) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. Dallas.

    Advice: The injury is to his non-shooting hand, so there's the positive in this situation. Stuckey just hasn't been able to stay healthy this season, and is currently averaging just 10.0 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game on 38.2 percent shooting from the field. Stuckey will have plenty of opportunity when he's finally able to play, but right now, he doesn't look to be worth owning in standard leagues. If he's unable to go, Donald Sloan will continue to get all the minutes he can handle. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Boozer (shoulder) questionable Sunday
    Carlos Boozer (shoulder) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: If Boozer is unable to go, Ed Davis will draw the start, and depending on how Davis fares the move could become permanent. Scott has grown tired of Boozer's uninspired play on the defensive end, as he's currently sitting on a +/- rating of minus-90 on the season. Meanwhile, Davis has been racking up the defensive stats in limited playing time and is currently a plus-6 on the year. If Boozer is unable to suit up Sunday, Davis could see his minutes in the 30s, and would make for a solid plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: "I loved his athleticism and the fact that he could attack the basket," Scott said. "His relentlessness to attack the basket contributed to the injuries as well." Henry said that he can already move "better and quicker" at this stage in his recovery, and he doesn't plan to change his game, but fantasy owners can watch his development from afar -- he's averaging under 10 minutes per game and recently had a stint in the D-League.

  • Otto Porter downplays hamstring injury
    Otto Porter said that his hamstring injury is minor and may be the result of dehydration and fatigue, but he remains questionable to practice on Monday.

    Advice: "Just a lot of soreness [on Saturday]," said Porter. "I didn’t want to make it into a big injury ... I’ve been through injuries before so I knew from the start it wasn’t nothing serious." Paul Pierce and Rasual Butler both picked up more minutes in Porter's absence but it sounds like he may return to the lineup for Tuesday's home game. Rotoworld.com

  • Derrick Favors has a double-double
    Derrick Favors double-doubled against the Pelicans during a 106-94 loss on Saturday with 13 points, 11 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 34 minutes.

    Advice: He had a front-row seat for the Anthony Davis Show, but Favors wasn't too bad on the offensive side of the ball. Favors has two sub-par games in a row and his foul shooting is coming down, but his owners shouldn't be overly concerned. Rotoworld.com

  • Kris Humphries goes for 12 and nine
    Kris Humphries scored 12 points against the Bucks during a 111-100 win on Saturday to go with nine rebounds, one assist and one block.

    Advice: Nene (foot) went down tonight and there is a very good chance he will miss time. Humphries has some upside to be a double-double guy with some defensive stats, so he's a speculative add in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:41 pm
  • Bradley Beal looks great again
    Bradley Beal looked good against the Bucks on Saturday with 17 points, two rebounds, six assists and one turnover in 34 minutes.

    Advice: He's played starter's minutes in each of the last two games and coach Randy Wittman will likely be putting him in the starting lineup any day now. Beal has third-round upside and just needs to stay healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Donatas Motiejunas racks up 14 & 12 in win
    Donatas Motiejunas played a whopping 38 minutes (season high) and hit 5-of-7 shots on his way to 14 points, 12 rebounds and a 3-pointer on Saturday.

    Advice: He also had five turnovers, but who cares? He's been getting some decent run with Dwight Howard out, but this was easily his best game of the season. He had played just 18 minutes in each of his last two games, but got big run tonight, and it paid off. He's still a shaky play in daily or standard leagues, but as long as Howard and Terrence Jones are out, he's at least worth a look from night to night. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:45 pm
  • Mo Williams has 11 points, 12 dimes in defeat
    Mo Williams continued his strong play as the Wolves' starting PG on Saturday, handing out 12 assists with 11 points on 5-of-16 shooting in 35 minutes.

    Advice: The field goal percentage wasn't great, but Mo chipped in a 3-pointer and he's really found a groove since overtaking Zach LaVine for the starting job in Ricky Rubio's absence. He's averaging 13.3 points, 1.7 triples, 1.8 rebounds and 9.7 assists in the past three games. LaVine had just five points in 13 minutes off the bench and it looks like Williams will be a reliable fantasy PG until Rubio returns, which won't be until late December at the earliest. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey exits w/ sprained left wrist
    Rodney Stuckey sprained his left wrist after tripping over a photographer on Saturday, and he will not return.

    Advice: Stuckey is already struggling with his conditioning after missing time due to a foot injury, and we can only hope that this injury doesn't cost him any more time. X-rays were negative and we're considering him questionable for Monday's road game in Dallas -- with C.J. Watson (foot) and George Hill (ankle) already ruled out, Donald Sloan may need to once again log 40+ minutes if Stuckey doesn't suit up. Rotoworld.com

  • Otto Porter will not play on Saturday night
    Otto Porter will not play on Saturday night due to a left hamstring tightness.

    Advice: He actually had some major hamstring issues in 2013 summer league, but that was to his right hamstring. Paul Pierce will play a little more while the Wizards could also use Bradley Beal at small forward off the bench as well. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal off the bench yet again on Sat
    Bradley Beal is coming off the bench again on Saturday against the Bucks.

    Advice: Coach Randy Wittman does not want to throw Beal out there in the starting lineup, but he should still get plenty of minutes. Perhaps he didn't want to tweak his rotation in a back-to-back because it worked for him. Regardless, start Beal in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Omer Asik (back) will not play on Saturday
    Omer Asik (back) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: He had an aggravation in Friday warmups and didn't have much of a chance to play tonight. With Asik out, Alexis Ajinca will get some extra playing time, but he's not a great fantasy option. Asik could miss more time and he's not a must-own player. Rotoworld.com

    Norris Cole (finger) will not play against the Magic on Saturday.

    Advice: It's going to be Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier handling the minutes at point guard tonight. With Chalmers logging more minutes at point guard, Shannon Brown will also be getting more run. The Heat have no been playing James Ennis at shooting guard much, so he doesn't benefit much.

  • Carlos Boozer has a sore shoulder issue
    Carlos Boozer is dealing with a sore shoulder and missed Saturday's practice, but he's probable to play vs. Denver on Sunday.

    Advice: There is no indication that he is in jeopardy of missing Sunday's game against the Nuggets. Boozer doesn't have any red flags on his shoulder and he probably just had a little too much contact at some point. If this does become an issue, Ed Davis would be a hot pickup. To be clear, Boozer sounds like he's OK. Rotoworld.com

  • Omer Asik (back) doubtful to play vs. Jazz
    Omer Asik (back) is doubtful to play vs. the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: Asik aggravated his lower back while warming up prior to Friday's game and it sounds like he'll miss his third straight game in Utah, but there's still a chance he'll recover in time to play. Alexis Ajinca has been very quiet as a fill-in starter in Asik's absence and there are no real fantasy winners in this scenario. Rotoworld.com

  • Norris Cole (finger) doubtful for Saturday
    Norris Cole (finger) is doubtful to play vs. the Magic on Saturday.

    Advice: The original diagnosis of a dislocated finger hasn't been changed, but owners should prepare to be without him for at least one game. "He's still splinted," said Erik Spoelstra, "but it could turn into a playable splint." Shabazz Napier's playing time gets a big boost with this news, and he'll likely start alongside Mario Chalmers in the backcourt if Cole doesn't play. Napier is worth a look as a temporary option at PG. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade out, Norris Cole doubtful vs. ORL
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will miss his fifth consecutive game on Saturday.

    Advice: Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier should get all the minutes they can handle, especially with Norris Cole (hand) also doubtful to suit up. Miami's lack of depth will likely require bench guys like Shannon Brown, Danny Granger and James Ennis to step into significant roles as the Heat look to avoid their fifth loss in six games. Wade did some light work during shootaround and is questionable for Sunday's home game. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin may need right wrist surgery
    Kevin Martin (broken right wrist) will be examined in the next few days to determine if his injury requires surgery.

    Advice: Regardless of whether or not he needs surgery Martin's absence "likely will be at least six weeks," according to beat writer Jerry Zgoda. In the meantime, Minnesota will rely more on Mo Williams, Chase Budinger, Corey Brewer, Shabazz Muhammad, Andrew Wiggins and Robbie Hummel. Head coach Flip Saunders is also interested in picking up free agents but he conceded, "Guys who aren’t playing in our league, there’s probably a reason." Rotoworld.com

  • Jimmy Butler has an overdue dud vs. POR
    Jimmy Butler scored nine points with four rebounds, two assists and one steal on 3-of-13 from the field against the Blazers on Friday.

    Advice: He's been one of the best players in the NBA this season and obviously gets a pass here. Butler's shot selection wasn't as great tonight, but there is no need to worry thanks to taking much smarter shots throughout the season. He'll likely get it going again on Monday against the Jazz.

  • Nikola Mirotic erupts w/ 24 points, 11 boards
    Nikola Mirotic stepped up with Taj Gibson (ankle) getting hurt against the Blazers on Friday, scoring a career-high 24 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Pau Gasol (calf) did not play tonight and X-rays were negative on Gibson's ankle, so he is not a lock for minutes. That said, Mirotic is capable of blocking shots, hitting treys and turning in good percentages, so it's not a bad idea to add him speculatively in some leagues. To be clear, we wouldn't cut a player you're going to miss. Rotoworld.com

  • Favors nears double-double in blowout loss
    Derrick Favors scored 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting with nine rebounds, one steal and two blocks in Friday's blowout loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: This was as good as it got in the starting lineup in yet another terrible basketball game on Friday. Enes Kanter scored 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting with five rebounds, three assists and five turnovers but as usual had no steals or blocks, Trey Burke fell off a cliff with two points (1-of-8 FGs), five assists, one steal, and Alec Burks hit 3-of-10 shots for nine points, four boards and a three. Woof. Rotoworld.com

    Bradley Beal played 32 minutes off the bench against the Cavs on Friday, scoring 12 points with five rebounds, five assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.

  • Mo Williams scores 15 points against SA
    Mo Williams made 6-of-14 from the field for 15 points with two rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: It seems clear coach Flip Saunders isn't going to flip-flop on his starting point guard and Mo is here to stay. He should be able to score in the teens with some dimes, treys and steals now that the Wolves are currently missing 80 percent of their opening night starting lineup. Williams is worth owning in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal coming off the bench again Fri.
    Bradley Beal will again come off the bench on Friday.

    Advice: It's really only a matter of time until Beal takes back his job with the starting unit, and the Wizards are simply easing him back into the rotation. Beal was able to put up 21 points over just 26 minutes of action during his last outing, to go with three 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists, two turnovers, and a steal, so he's going to get his whether he's starting or coming off the bench. He has a favorable matchup tonight vs. the Cavs, so owners can go ahead and roll him out there. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 4:25 pm
  • Omer Asik is questionable for Friday
    Omer Asik (back) is questionable to face the Nuggets on Friday.

    Advice: He has missed his last two games and he is probably a little closer to doubtful. The Pelicans do not need him since they can just play Anthony Davis at center. Alexis Ajinca may get minutes, but Ryan Anderson is probably the biggest beneficiary. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey working on his conditioning
    Rodney Stuckey is working on getting his conditioning back after spending two weeks on the sidelines.

    Advice: "I only played 26 minutes, but it felt like I played 35," Stuckey said after Wednesday's win over the Hornets. "It’s all about getting my legs back underneath me and getting my wind back up. Here within the next week or so I should be back to normal." Stuckey is going to be eased back into the rotation, but with George Hill (knee) and C.J. Watson (foot) out he'll have plenty of opportunity. However, he really doesn't do much aside from score, so he's not necessarily a must-own guy in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal says he wants to play more
    Bradley Beal said he wants to play more this season.

    Advice: "At the end of the day, we had some good lineups and good things going before I came back," Beal said. "So what Coach is doing, I have no problem with it at all. As far as me coming off the bench, me playing the minutes I’m playing, that’s totally his call." Beal is going to start and it's probably going to happen tonight against the Cavs. His fantasy owners will want to put him in their lineup as he looks to back up his words that he and John Wall are a better backcourt than Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters.

  • Kevin Martin (broken wrist) out indefinitely
    Kevin Martin fractured his right wrist during Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks, and will be out indefinitely.

    Advice: The Wolves are saying that Martin sustained the injury at the 6:48 mark of the first quarter, which is very impressive as he went on to score 37 points. While Martin is sidelined, Corey Brewer will likely slide into the starting lineup, with Chase Budinger, Mo Williams, and Shabazz Muhammad seeing extended minutes. Andrew Wiggins is also going to see a boost to his value, as he'll be more heavily relied upon sans Martin's offense. Rotoworld.com

    Darren Collison played terrific ball on both ends of the floor against the Bulls on Thursday during a 103-88 win with 17 points, six rebounds, 12 assists, one steal, one block and one turnover.

    Advice: The Kings had a season-high 26 assists as a team tonight and had six players in double figures. They still rank 27th in the NBA for assists per game, but at least it's a step up from last in 2013-14. Collison has been a steal for his fantasy owners as a top-50 player despite sub-par shooting and it's become abundantly clear he has no competition for his starter's minutes. Rotoworld.com

    Rudy Gay made 7-of-11 from the field for 20 points against the Bulls on Thursday and added seven rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

    Advice: He was probable to play with some Achilles soreness and he did have a heating pad on his foot in the fourth quarter. According to TNT's telecast, the Kings were planning on treating him in the game, so there's no need to worry. There is a chance this becomes an issue later, but Gay should be in all lineups right now. Rotoworld.com

    Joakim Noah turned it on late against the Kings in a losing effort on Thursday, finishing with 10 points, 11 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.

    Advice: He played almost the entire fourth quarter with five fouls and was very active on the glass. Noah had another double-double on Monday in the first game without Pau Gasol, so it's fair to say Noah will have better fantasy value sans Pau. Rotoworld.com

  • Jimmy Butler scores 23 points
    Jimmy Butler scored 23 points against the Kings on Thursday with eight rebounds, one assist, two steals and three turnovers.

    Advice: He operated out of the post quite a bit, but he had nine of his 11 makes come off an assist tonight. Butler has been the go-to option for the Bulls these days, but his usage takes a massive hit when Derrick Rose (hamstring) is on the floor. He's putting up first-round value right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Norris Cole plays better on Saturday
    Norris Cole did not return from his dislocated left middle finger against the Clippers on Thursday, finishing with no points and one assist in 10 minutes.

    Advice: Cole was on the bench after a trip to the locker room, but it seemed clear the team didn't want to put him back out there. The team has yet to share any X-ray results and he might have an MRI coming on Friday. Shabazz Napier would be a deep-league speculative add for now. Rotoworld.com

    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: This marks the fourth consecutive game Wade will be sidelined with this hamstring injury, and Mario Chalmers will continue to start as long as Wade is out. Chalmers has been great with the starting unit, averaging 20.0 points, 5.0 assists, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game, and he should be in all active lineups on a night with just two games being played.

    Advice: Gay hasn't missed a game yet with his Achilles tendinitis, so we're going to say he's very likely to play in this one.

  • Mo Williams to start for the Timberwolves?
    Mo Williams looked great in a starting role on Wednesday and his play has head coach Flip Saunders thinking about sticking with him in that role.

    Advice: With rookie Zach LaVine scuffling, Williams provided the Wolves with a spark during their win over the Knicks on Wednesday. "Big difference," Kevin Martin said. "When Mo came in and got me going. He’s just a veteran point guard in the backcourt with you. He knows your spots." Flip Saunders used the phrase "big difference" to describe the swap of Williams and LaVine in the starting lineup, so fantasy owners in all leagues will want to take a flier on Williams while Ricky Rubio (ankle) is out.

  • Is Norris Cole on the Heat's trade block?
    Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel thinks there is a chance that the Heat trade Norris Cole this season.

    Advice: Coupled with Mario Chalmers' recent strong play, Winderman cites the fact the Heat declined to extend Cole before the October 31 deadline as a reason that Miami might explore a trade. Cole is stuck in a backcourt logjam with Chalmers and rookie Shabazz Napier, so his fantasy value is limited to deeper leagues unless he can separate himself from the pack. Rotoworld.com

    Carlos Boozer scored 12 points with 13 rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 30 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He shot just 5-of-15 from the field and wasn't quite as hot as his 20-point, 10-board game on Tuesday. Nobody will bother trading for Boozer in your fantasy league, but he's worth owning as a low-upside guy for his points and boards. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He may have squandered his last real chance here. Motiejunas had his best opportunity of the season with Dwight Howard (knee) and Terrence Jones (leg) out, but his fouls and turnovers were the headline for him tonight. Fantasy owners just can't trust him right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin (illness) scores 37 points vs NY
    Kevin Martin played his best game of the season despite needing an IV before a 115-99 win over the Knicks on Wednesday, making 14-of-20 from the field for 37 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and seven 3-pointers.

    Advice: Maybe the Knicks didn't want to guard him because they were scared of getting sick. Martin just dropped a 34-point game in his last outing on Saturday and he's one of the hottest shooting guards in the NBA all of the sudden. He's a must-start player right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Mo Williams looks great in start vs. Knicks
    Mo Williams looked fantastic in a start against the Knicks on Wednesday with 14 points, three rebounds, 13 assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: Why didn't he start immediately following the Ricky Rubio (ankle) injury again? Williams was in complete control of the offense and he's capable of putting up great stats. Zach LaVine can't seem to do anything right, so Williams should be around 30 minutes, which makes him worth owning in standard leagues right now. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He's back and Garrett Temple started, but played just 13 minutes for two points. Get Beal in your lineup and pray that he can stay out of the trainer's room for the rest of the season. He looked great tonight, and should be back in the starting lineup on Friday against the Cavaliers. And if you own Temple, it's time to move on. Rotoworld.com

    Rodney Stuckey returned to the lineup on Wednesday against the Hornets, making 5-of-13 from the field for 11 points with two rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He played mostly shooting guard and continues to turn in a high usage rate. Stuckey logged only 13.3 minutes per game, but now he's likely going to stay in the mid-20 range. Considering he doesn't usually shoot the ball well and doesn't do much outside of scoring, he's not a great player to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Garrett Temple will likely get his last start with Beal active tonight. Fantasy owners shouldn't have high hopes for Beal with an expected minutes limit. He obviously should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:53 pm
  • Kevin Martin questionable Wed. w/ illness
    Kevin Martin is questionable for Wednesday's game due to an illness.

    Advice: He received an IV earlier in the day and the flu is ravaging teams around the league at the moment, so owners should prepare for a potential DNP. Corey Brewer is also iffy to play with the illness, potentially opening up more minutes for Zach LaVine, Mo Williams, Chase Budinger, Shabazz Muhammad and Robbie Hummel. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal activated on Wednesday
    Bradley Beal (wrist) is active for Wednesday night against the Mavs.

    Advice: It's still unclear if he is going to start, but he's very likely to have his minutes limited. Beal will likely see his minutes in the high teens tonight before he gets more run on Friday. Garrett Temple will likely get decent minutes tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:13 pm
  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) doubtful for Thursday
    Dwyane Wade (left hamstring) is doubtful to play on Thursday night against the Clippers.

    Advice: This would be his fourth game out of the lineup and there's a chance he misses some time over the weekend, as well. It's worth mentioning his left leg has been worse than his right and he's needed his left knee drained multiple times over the past few seasons. Mario Chalmers has benefited and will be worth using in all leagues. James Ennis, Shabazz Napier and Norris Cole also benefit. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) limited in practice
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday, and should be considered questionable for Thursday's game.

    Advice: Wade's goal of playing every game this season was quickly shattered last week when he tweaked his hamstring so it's not surprising to see the Heat exercise caution with him. If he ends up sitting on Thursday, Mario Chalmers will likely draw another start and is worth a look in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal (wrist) now a game-time decision
    Contrary to a previous report, Bradley Beal (wrist) is now a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against Dallas, though he will come off the bench if he is active as he works his way back into shape.

    Advice: He is now expected to have a discussion with coach Wittman prior to tip-off and it will be up Beal as to whether or not he will play. Owners will want to check back before the game for updates, as Beal would be a must-start player if active for his 3-point shooting. If he can't go, expect Garrett Temple to enjoy the glory for at least one more game. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (foot) will play Wednesday
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) will play in Wednesday's game against Charlotte.

    Advice: This is excellent news for the Pacers as they have been ravaged by injuries all season long. It is unclear how many minutes Stuckey will see Wednesday, but he likely be eased into action. He will be worth a flier in deeper leagues while owners in standard leagues should keep a close eye on him. His return could spell trouble for the value of Donald Sloan and A.J. Price but that remains to be seen. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:16 am
  • Rodney Stuckey (foot) is probable Wednesday
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Owners in deep leagues should definitely consider taking a flier on him due to the lack of depth the Pacers have right now with George Hill(knee) and C.J. Watson (ankle) still recovering from injury. Stuckey can put up points in a hurry and though his minutes might be limited at first, he could play a huge role for the Pacers this season. If he does suit up, he will eat into the minutes of Donald Sloan while shattering the value of A.J. Price. Check back before tip-off for the latest updates. Rotoworld.com

  • Rudy Gay (Achilles) quiet in 37 minutes Tues.
    Rudy Gay (Achilles) had a subpar game in 37 minutes of action on Tuesday, making 6-of-17 field goals to finish with 15 points, four rebounds, five assists, one steal and four turnovers.

    Advice: Gay didn't appear hobbled and his playing time suggests the Kings' coaches and trainers weren't overly concerned about his Achilles tendinitis, which had him listed as questionable for the game. Sacramento returns to action on Thursday vs. the Bulls, and fantasy owners should assume Gay will start unless a report surfaces to the contrary. Rotoworld.com

  • Enes Kanter scores 16 pts, grabs 15 boards
    Enes Kanter scored 16 points and grabbed a season-high 15 rebounds in an easy win vs. the Thunder on Tuesday, making 6-of-16 FGs and 4-of-8 FTs in just 27 minutes of action.

    Advice: This was Kanter's first sub-.500 shooting game since Nov. 7, and he's shooting 85.0 percent from the charity stripe this season, so he gets a pass for the poor percentages. He also had zero assists, steals or blocks tonight, which is an unfortunate trend -- his 8-cat fantasy value is severely limited by averages of 0.4 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.3 blocks per game. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:38 pm
  • Derrick Favors scores 10 points in 26 minutes
    Derrick Favors was conspicuously quiet in Tuesday's win vs. the Thunder, scoring 10 points with seven rebounds, two assists and one block in just 26 minutes.

    Advice: He picked up four fouls, which limited his playing time, and credit is due to Serge Ibaka's defense. Favors hasn't been the most consistent player this year, but he's exceeding fantasy owners' expectations with top-40 value and should only get better as the season progresses. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlos Boozer's 20 & 10 help LAL hold off ATL
    The Lakers pulled out a five-point road win in Atlanta on Tuesday, aided by Carlos Boozer's 20 points (10-of-14 shooting), 10 rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: Boozer was torched defensively but made up the difference with solid rebounding and shooting, which is a nice sight after Sunday's dud (six points on 3-of-13 shooting). He's barely clinging to 14-team value this season, but has picked up the pace over the past week and is worth owning if you need points, boards and solid FG percentages. Rotoworld.com

  • Omer Asik (back) will not play Tuesday vs SAC
    Omer Asik (back) will miss his second straight game vs. the Kings on Tuesday.

    Advice: Asik warmed up but didn't feel good enough to return, leaving Alexis Ajinca as the Pelicans' likely starting center. Ryan Anderson was the guy who absorbed most of Asik's playing time on Monday, however, and he should do so again tonight. Asik is day-to-day and could return as soon as Friday in Denver.

  • Rudy Gay (Achilles) starting vs. New Orleans
    Rudy Gay (Achilles) will start Tuesday's game vs. New Orleans, as expected.

    Advice: Gay has some tendinitis in his right Achilles but the fact that he's active indicates it's not serious. He's off to a terrific start this season, averaging 22.5 points and 6.8 rebounds, and it's safe to keep him active in all lineups. Rotoworld.com

    Rudy Gay (right Achilles tendinitis) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: It's looking likely that Gay will suit up for this one, but owners will want to check back for an official update as we draw closer to Tuesday's tip. If Gay sits, Omri Casspi would likely pick up a majority of the minutes at small forward, and would make for a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    Rodney Stuckey (foot) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Advice: Stuckey has practiced for the last two days, so it's looking more and more likely that he'll suit up against the Hornets. The Pacers will likely keep his minutes in check on Wednesday, but his return to the lineup will cut into Donald Sloan and A.J. Price's fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Mark Cuban excited for Raymond Felton return
    Mark Cuban said he's excited for Raymond Felton (ankle) to return from his four-game suspension.

    Advice: Felton began served his suspension on Monday, so he should be on-track to suit up against the Pacers on November 24 now that his high ankle sprain has healed. "I’m excited to get Raymond back because that will push our point guards a little bit more," Cuban said. While Cuban might be excited, fantasy owners shouldn't be rushing to add Felton as he's stuck in a backcourt logjam with Monta Ellis, Jameer Nelson, Devin Harris, and J.J. Barea. Rotoworld.com

  • Joakim Noah says Bulls have work to do
    Joakim Noah said the Bulls still have work to do after Monday's win over the Clippers.

    Advice: After easily defeating the Clippers without Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol, Noah said the Bulls have some building to do. "We have a lot of work to do," Noah said. "As long as we stay humble and we keep working, keep getting better as a team, hopefully, we'll have a chance. But we're nowhere near where we have to be." While Noah's numbers haven't been exactly what his fantasy owners expected, his improved play over the Bulls' last five games should give hope that he can still return top-30 value. Rotoworld.com

  • Noah posts big popcorn line in easy win
    Joakim Noah scored 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting with 16 rebounds and six assists in Monday's easy win over the Clippers.

    Advice: Noah's numbers are down in enough areas to worry that he's still not at 100 percent, but he's playing and doing enough to return top-75 value. Rotoworld.com

  • Butler headlines night of big lines for Bulls
    Jimmy Butler scored 22 points on 6-of-17 shooting with six rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one three and a 9-of-10 mark from the foul line in Monday's win.

    Advice: Butler is returning top-10 fantasy value and it's unclear where his shooting percentages are ultimately going to fall because he has clearly improved. Making an ungodly 80.6 percent from the line on 8.0 attempts per game, we're getting past issues involving small sample size too. The safe play is to sell him high in exchange for a well-positioned top-20 asset, but what fun would that be? Rotoworld.com

  • Mirotic productive with Pau Gasol out
    Nikola Mirotic was productive with Pau Gasol (calf) out on Monday, scoring 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds and two assists in 18 minutes.

    Advice: Mirotic needs an injury or two in front of him before he has any real fantasy value, but this is a good sign that he may be able to come through if given the chance. Rotoworld.com

  • Motiejnuas can't take advantage of chance
    Donatas Motiejunas logged just 18 minutes in Monday's blowout loss, scoring six points on 3-of-8 shooting with two rebounds and one block.

    Advice: It's starting to feel like Terrence Jones (leg) will miss another month, and we've included the link to one of many scattered reports that had Rockets play-by-play man Bill Worrell saying that "may" be the case. But Motiejunas has been terrible in most formats this year, and it's more likely that there is no real beneficiary due to Jones' time off. Rotoworld.com

    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday night against the Nets.

    Rodney Stuckey (foot) has a chance to play on Wednesday against the Hornets.

    Advice: His minutes were held in check before suffering the injury earlier this month. Stuckey was very active while he was on the court, but it's still a little tough to get too excited about him as a fantasy asset. Most owners can take a wait-and-see approach. Rotoworld.com

    Kris Humphries is emerging as part of the Wizards' rotation after being initially slowed by his hand injury.

    Raymond Felton will begin serving his four-game suspension on Monday.

    Advice: Felton, finally healthy enough to return after sustaining a high right ankle sprain, will begin serving his suspension beginning Monday against the Hornets.

  • Andrew Bogut double-doubles in 21 minutes
    Andrew Bogut double-doubled in just 21 minutes on Sunday, scoring 15 points with 10 rebounds in the Warriors' blowout road win in L.A.

    Advice: Bogut made 7-of-9 field goals and chipped in four assists and one block, providing a solid fantasy line despite limited minutes. He's as healthy as he's ever been and has returned top-60 value at this early point in the season, though he's unlikely to help fantasy owners beyond the typical big-man categories of FG%, rebounds and blocks.

  • Isaiah Canaan picks up DNP-CD vs. Thunder
    Isaiah Canaan vanished from the Rockets' rotation with Patrick Beverley (hamstring) healthy on Sunday.

    Advice: Canaan was a tolerable fill-in fantasy option during Beverley's absence, but owners can obviously cut him in standard formats. He is apparently buried in the backcourt depth chart behind both Jason Terry (scoreless in 19 minutes) and Troy Daniels (scoreless in four minutes). Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will travel to BK
    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will travel with the Heat to Brooklyn, but he's looking doubtful for Monday's game despite being listed as day-to-day.

    Advice: "He's starting to do a lot more corrective exercises, strength and treatment," coach Erik Spoelstra said. "That's all we can do right now. Then we'll take the next step when he can get there." Wade missed nine games last season with a similar hamstring issue, so it wouldn't be shocking to see him sit out on Monday. If he's unable to go, Mario Chalmers would likely get another start, and he makes for a solid option in daily leagues.

    Dwyane Wade (hamstring) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Bucks, and is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: James Ennis drew the start in Wade's place on Friday, but he only lasted six minutes, and it was Mario Chalmers who saw a bulk of the minutes in Wade's absence. Chalmers put up 23 points, 11 assists, and one 3-pointer during his last outing, and will look to build upon that effort today as the Heat take on the Bucks, get him in your lineups. Rotoworld.com

  • Raymond Felton to start suspension on Monday?
    The Mavericks are expecting Raymond Felton to be able to start serving his four-game suspension for gun charges on Monday.

    Advice: If Felton begins his suspension on Monday, he would be eligible to make his Mavericks debut Nov. 24 vs. the Pacers. However, he's going to be fighting for minutes with Jameer Nelson, Monta Ellis, Devin Harris, and J.J. Barea, so he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Canaan likely to return to bench role
    Isaiah Canaan likely will return to the bench on Sunday as Patrick Beverley (hamstring) is listed as active.

    Darren Collison scored 19 points with two rebounds, five assists and two steals in 39 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: He scored 20 points on Thursday and has been great so far this year. Nobody really thought Collison was a great pickup by the Kings especially with Isaiah Thomas being signed relatively cheap, but he's worth owning in all standard leagues and should outperform his ADP. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He gave the Warriors a boost and made his presence felt all over the court. Bogut likely won't play big minutes during the season as he is prone to injury, but he has shown that he can be effective in limited action.

    Mo Williams finally turned in a good game on Saturday with 13 points, eight assists and one rebound in 29 minutes against the Mavericks.

    Advice: He's been a major letdown since Ricky Rubio (ankle) went down, but this is the type of line he should put up more often than not. Williams is also likely to bury some treys, which is why we liked his upside in the first place. This game won't send prospective owners to the wire, so you can probably keep him out there.

    Kevin Martin made 12-of-17 from the field for 34 points, three rebounds, one assist and four 3-pointers against the Mavericks on Saturday.

Of course, Martin hasn't been very efficient in his career, but he is making a pristine 95 percent of his free throws on the season. Fantasy owners can start him while he's active. Rotoworld.com

    Jimmy Butler scored a career-high 32 points against the Pacers on Saturday with six rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes.

    Advice: The breakout is real, folks. Butler is getting to the free throw line a ton, knocking down jumpers and playing great on the defense end. After tonight's game, Butler will have first-round value in standard leagues and he's arguably been the best pick in fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com

    Derrick Favors made 9-of-11 from the field for 18 points in a 111-93 loss to the Raptors on Saturday with six rebounds, two assists and one turnover.

    Advice: He started fast, but the Raptors were clearly committed to keeping him in check in the second half. Favors has shot 9-of-11 in two of his last three games with a 21-12 double-double sandwiched in between. He's rolling for his fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: The Wolves were blown out but Williams has been terrible all year, so needless to say he hasn't made any move on the open point guard minutes now that Ricky Rubio is out.

  • Motiejunas blocks two and steals two
    Donatas Motiejunas blocked two shots and stole the ball twice to go with three points and seven boards over 31 minutes on Friday against the Sixers.

    Advice: The opponent should be noted for their garbage brand of basketball and it should also be noted that Terrence Jones' leg injury isn't yet in the day-to-day realm. Motie's fantasy game is deficient in many areas and he's a desperation add while Jones is out, at best. Rotoworld.com
