    • George Hill will remain on minutes cap Thurs.
      George Hill will remain on his 20 minutes per game limit until Saturday, after which the Pacers hope to increase his workload.

      Advice: While Hill has been limited to 20 minutes per game over his last three outings, he's still been able to put up serviceable numbers, averaging 14.3 points, 2.7 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.0 three-pointer per game. He'll have a favorable matchup against the Knicks tonight, so feel free to roll him out there. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Miles (groin) will play Thursday vs. NY
      C.J. Miles (groin) will play in short stretches for Thursday's game vs. the Knicks.

      Advice: It sounds like he's going to come off the bench, as Frank Vogel would like to ease him back into the rotation. Although he has a favorable matchup against the Knicks tonight, the minutes limit makes him a risky option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Ben Gordon activated, Devyn Marble inactive
      Ben Gordon will be activated for Thursday's game against the Bucks, pushing Devyn Marble to the inactive list.

      Advice: Being on the active roster doesn't guarantee you playing time. Gordon is averaging 6.7 points and not much else over 15 minutes of action this season, and he remains a negligible fantasy option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • J.J. Redick (back) questionable for Friday
      J.J. Redick (back) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans, but he will try and play.

      Advice: Doc Rivers said that he's hopeful to have Redick available for Friday, so it's looking like he has a good chance of suiting up. We'll have a better idea of Redick's status following Friday morning's shootaround, but his return to action would likely send Jamal Crawford back to the bench, and he'd see a minor decrease in value.

    • Kerr says no plans to rest Stephen Curry
      Steve Kerr said he has no plans of resting Stephen Curry.

      Advice: Why would he? Curry has played 78 games the past two seasons, and aside from the injury-plagued disaster of the 2011-12 season, Steph has managed to stay very healthy throughout his career. He's currently averaging 22.8 points, 8.2 assists, and a career-high 4.7 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game on 49.1 percent shooting. He's in the MVP conversation, and there's no reason to think he'll slow down. Rotoworld.com

    • Evan Turner (thumb) doesn't practice Thursday
      Evan Turner (thumb) was not a participant during Thursday's practice.

      Advice: Turner played during the Celtics' last game despite the thumb issue, so we'll consider him probable for Friday's game against Houston. However, with a tough matchup against Patrick Beverley, and a busy schedule on Friday, there are probably better options you can plug into your active roster tomorrow. Rotoworld.com

    • Avery Bradley (thumb) misses practice Thurs.
      Avery Bradley (thumb, hand) did not practice on Thursday.

      Advice: Bradley was able to fight through his ailments during Boston's last game, and he ended up logging 37 minutes. His absence from practice is likely to just get him some rest, and we'll be considering him on the probable side of questionable for Friday's game vs. Houston. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Gordon Hayward (sinus) probable for Friday
      Gordon Hawyard (sinus congestion) did not practice on Thursday, but he is expected to play Friday vs. the Warriors.

      Advice: Sinus congestion seems about as minor of an ailment as they come, so owners should not be fretting about him missing any game-time action. He will however have a tough matchup against Golden State on Friday, so that is something to consider for people playing daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Deron Williams (ribs) will not play on Friday
      Deron Williams (ribs) went through the majority of Thursday's practice, however, he remains out for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

      Advice: Williams was able to go through some contact portions of Thursday's practice, so he is certainly making progress. We'll continue to monitor his status closely, but with Williams out, Jarrett Jack will continue to play heavy minutes for Brooklyn. Jack had taken the starting gig away from Williams even before the injury, so there are no guarantees that Williams will immediately return to the starting lineup when he's 100 percent. Rotoworld.com

    • Nick Young (ankle) out Thursday vs. Chicago
      Nick Young (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls.

      Advice: Young will travel with the team on their upcoming four-game road trip, and head coach Byron Scott said he expects Young to return soon. In the meantime, Wayne Ellington, Jordan Clarkson, and Jeremy Lin will all have some increased opportunity for as long as Swaggy P is unavailable. However, with a tough matchup against Chicago tonight, all these guys figure to be risky options in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo Williams (personal) misses practice Thurs.
      Mo Williams (personal) was not present during the Timberwolves' practice on Thursday, but he will meet the team in Philadelphia on Friday.

      Advice: We'll be considering Williams questionable for Friday's game against the 76ers, as it's not yet known if he has fully recovered from the hip injury he was dealing with earlier in the week. If Williams sits, Zach LaVine would draw the start in a favorable matchup against the Sixers. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Jimmy Butler expected to play Thursday
      Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau expects Jimmy Butler (illness) to play against the Lakers on Thursday.

      Advice: Butler has struggled a bit recently as he's averaged 15.3 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 2.1 steals on just 40.6 percent shooting from the field. His return will cut into the fantasy production of Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich, while Butler's owners can feel free to slot him back into their lineups and hope that Jimmy has some new moves to get back on track.

    • Tony Allen will play vs Nuggets on Thursday
      Tony Allen (ankle) will play against the Nuggets on Thursday.

      Advice: Allen will return after missing the Grizzlies' last two games, but he doesn't have much fantasy value fighting for minutes with Jeff Green, Courtney Lee, and Vince Carter. Allen can be left on waiver wires in standard leagues while his return will put a dent in the fantasy values of his aforementioned teammates. Rotoworld.com

    • John Wall headed to see doctor for migraines
      John Wall (ankle, head) will to meet with a doctor about his migraines on Friday.

      Advice: Wall is already dealing with a balky right ankle, but his headaches are becoming the main issue as he's played his last two games through intense migraines. "It’s just been killing me, man, to be honest," Wall said before Wednesday's loss to the Suns. Wall has two days off before the Wizards play again on Saturday, but Andre Miller would be in line for a spot start if Wall can't suit up against the Raptors. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Miles questionable for Thurs vs Knicks
      C.J. Miles (groin) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Knicks.

      Advice: Miles was seen going through extra shooting drills after shootaround so that could be a good sign for his availability Thursday night. If Miles sits for the third consecutive game, Rodney Stuckey would be the biggest fantasy beneficiary with C.J. Watson and Damjan Rudez also picking up some extra minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • Goran Dragic scores 20 in win vs. Wizards
      Goran Dragic scored a game-high 20 points against the Wizards on Wednesday during a 106-98 win, adding three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: Dragic and Bledsoe are fourth and third in the NBA points in fast break and that style of play has helped a slew of guys put up favorable fantasy value. Dragic was coming off two horrendous games with just 12 points combined, so he needed a bounce-back game. In the last month, Dragic has been awesome at the rim in the past month, which explains why he's made 53.3 percent from the field in his last 16. His slow start is a distant memory. Rotoworld.com

    • Gordon Hayward cools off in loss to Clips
      Gordon Hayward hit just 4-of-13 shots and was 0-for-5 from downtown for 11 points, four rebounds, five assists and two blocks in Wednesday's tough loss to the Clippers.

      Advice: Had he brought his A Game tonight, the Jazz probably would have won. Hayward is having a great season and tonight was just 'one of those nights.' He'll bounce back in the next one. Rotoworld.com

    • J.J. Redick could return on Friday

    • John Wall has a bad game in Phoenix
      John Wall (ankle, Achilles, migraines) didn't have a great game against the Suns during a 106-98 loss on Wednesday, making 5-of-16 from the field for 11 points with seven boards, seven assists, one steal, two blocks, one 3-pointer and five turnovers.

      Advice: He has been dealing with migraines for the past two weeks and he's dealing with some foot issues, as well. Wall and the Wizards had their four-game West Coast trip end tonight, so they'll head back home to face the Raptors on Saturday. While the Raptors have been struggling against PGs, Wall actually had one of his worst games against them with eight points earlier this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Jarrett Jack goes for 14 & 13 in loss to ATL
      Jarrett Jack had 14 points, five rebounds, 13 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 5-of-13 shooting in Wednesday's loss at Atlanta.

      Advice: This was Jack's third double-double in January and the 13 dimes marked a season high for a Nets player. He's played well for the most part over the last month, although when he has a bad game, it's usually pretty bad. Deron Williams (ribs) missed his 10th straight game tonight, but seems to be nearing a return. But unless you see him starting and Jack becoming irrelevant, hang onto JJ until further notice.

    • Lance Stephenson doesn't score in 20 minutes
      Lance Stephenson failed to score on his five attempts from the field against the Spurs on Wednesday with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and four turnovers.

      Advice: Born Ready needs a resurrection. He's made just 34.5 percent from the field since his return to the lineup, averaging just 7.0 points, 4.9 assists, 3.3 boards, 2.6 turnovers and 0.0 treys. What's more, Stephenson is made just 15.2 percent from beyond three feet in that span. There is upside, but it's too hard to start him right now. Rotoworld.com

    • Danny Green has another massive line
      Danny Green filled the stat sheet against the Hornets during a 95-86 win on Wednesday, scoring 16 points with five rebounds, two assists, two steals, three blocks and four 3-pointers.

      Advice: He was coming in off two horrible games, averaging just 5.0 points, 2.0 boards, 2.5 dimes and 1.0 triples on 20.0 percent from the field. Green has been an early-round guy on the season and it would appear his floor is a mid-round guy. His owners have nothing to worry about, but they knew that just by reading his stat line tonight.

    • Kawhi Leonard sits in the fourth
      Kawhi Leonard played just 23 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday with nine points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover.

      Advice: Coach Gregg Popovich said he wanted to roll with Cory Joseph down the stretch and kept Leonard on the bench because of it. Kawhi was filling it up before tonight in his games since returning from injury, averaging 16.5 points, 10.0 boards, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.3 triples in 31.3 minutes per game. If you can try to buy low from one game, go for it. Kawhi is a stud. Rotoworld.com

    • Jose Calderon starts despite knee injury
      Jose Calderon played through a knee injury on Wednesday and had four points, three rebounds, eight assists and two steals in 27 minutes.

      Advice: Langston Galloway (18 points) is still the guard you want to own in New York, as Calderon is likely just biding his time before being traded out of the Big Apple. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:11 pm
    • Reggie Jackson scores 13 in loss to Knicks
      Reggie Jackson hit 6-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, seven rebounds, four assists and four steals in Wednesday's loss to the Knicks.

      Advice: Jackson had 14 points and three steals in his previous game, but scored just two points in the one prior to that. He's been unreliable coming off the Thunder bench, but could be heating up, especially if Kevin Durant continues to miss games with his toe injury. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:58 pm
    • Kevin Martin scores 21 points in return
      Kevin Martin returned from a wrist injury on Wednesday against the Celtics, scoring 21 points with four rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

      Advice: He was better than expected and really turned it on after a slow start tonight. Martin was on fire before his injury with a 37-point game in his last outing and a 34-point one before that, so he should be owned in all leagues following this game. Although, his fantasy owners should consider selling high once he solidifies his value. Rotoworld.com

    • Monta Ellis stays hot on Wednesday
      Monta Ellis hit 14-of-23 shots and a 3-pointer for 33 points, four rebounds, five assists and a steal on Wednesday.

      Advice: Rajon Rondo was terrible tonight and Ellis is heating up, scoring 33, 19, 36 and 17 points over his last four games. Rotoworld.com

    • Lou Williams drops 27 points on Kings
      Lou Williams came off the bench for 27 points, two rebounds, two assists, three steals and four 3-pointers on 7-of-16 shooting in 26 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: Williams has hit double figures in seven straight games and has only scored in single digits one time in 14 January games, and this is officially your notice to pick him up. Just don't expect him to do this every night, as he's only scored 20 or more points in three of those 14 games. Rotoworld.com

    • Greivis Vasquez steps up with 18 points
      Greivis Vasquez started at shooting guard again and had 18 points, four rebounds, six assists, a steal and four 3-pointers on 7-of-9 shooting in 31 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: After a slow start to his starting tenure, Vasquez has hit double digits in scoring in three of his last four games, and is averaging 10.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five. And that includes a dud of three points on 1-of-8 shooting a week ago. If you need a shooting guard and Mario Chalmers isn't available, think about grabbing Vasquez. Rotoworld.com

    • John Wall (ankle) will play against the Suns
      John Wall will play against the Suns on Wednesday night.

    • J.J. Redick out Wednesday w/ back spasms
      J.J. Redick will not play on Wednesday due to back spasms.

      Advice: Doc Rivers will probably keep Jamal Crawford in his usual sixth-man role, leaving Redick's minutes to Austin Rivers and Dahntay Jones. Crawford and Matt Barnes should also pick up extra playing time. Redick has suffered from back spasms in previous years but it never cost him much time, so owners can consider him questionable to return in New Orleans on Friday. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Martin (wrist) to come off the bench
      Kevin Martin (wrist) will come off the bench on Wednesday against the Celtics.

      Advice: It will be his first game back since November and he might see some limited playing time. Martin will likely bump Andrew Wiggins over to small forward, which may cut minutes Thaddeus Young,, Gorgui Dieng and Nikola Pekovic. Martin should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jose Calderon (knee) will start vs. Thunder
      Jose Calderon (knee) will start against the Thunder on Wednesday night.

      Advice: Langston Galloway will start at shooting guard. Calderon appears to be close to 100 percent after receiving so much time off from a bruised knee. He's still going to be a risky play because Russell Westbrook figures to carve him up throughout the game. Galloway is still a fantasy option tonight and plays well next to Calderon. Rotoworld.com

    • John Wall is questionable, likely to play
      John Wall is listed as questionable to face the Suns, but a team official said he thinks Wall will play.

      Advice: He wasn't on the injury report for the pre-game notes, but the Wizards are going to entertain the idea of resting him again. He was supposed to have a minutes limit on Tuesday, but it didn't happen. Wall has an Achilles issue, a sore ankle, and migraines, so it's possible he sits. Owners in season-long leagues should start Wall tonight, but he's not a great DFS option. Rotoworld.com

      George Hill (leg) missed practice on Wednesday.

      Advice: "To not be able to start the season with these guys and go through all these battles with them and then coming back for a couple games and it's [another injury], that [is bad]," Hill said. Not good. He just can't stay healthy this season and is almost a lock to miss games at some point. We should consider him questionable to play against the Knicks on Thursday. Rotoworld.com

      Nick Young (ankle) missed practice on Wednesday night.

      Advice: He has a moderate ankle sprain and missed Tuesday's game against the Wizards. The Lakers seem to be committed to their young guys, so don't expect Young to play at less than 100 percent. Wayne Ellington and Jordan Clarkson are both worth a look. Rotoworld.com

      Jose Calderon (knee) is questionable to play against the Thunder on Wednesday.

      Advice: He is a little closer to doubtful to play after a knee injury from the weekend. Calderon has really struggled on both ends and the team might not want to put him at the mercy of Russell Westbrook. Fantasy owners can plan on him sitting while Langston Galloway figures to start again. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Martin (questionable) expects to play
      Kevin Martin (wrist) is expected to make his return to the lineup against the Celtics on Wednesday.

      Advice: He's not a complete lock because the team will want to see how he performs in pre-game workouts, and he's technically questionable to play. Most signs do point to him playing despite an earlier report today. Martin has been doing a lot of non-contact work and missed some practice over the weekend. He's someone worth grabbing in standard leagues. Meanwhile, it should be interesting to see what happens with the other starters. Andrew Wiggins may slide to the small forward spot, which would bump Gorgui Dieng or Thaddeus Young from the starting unit. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Miles (groin) questionable Wednesday
      C.J. Miles (groin) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

      Advice: He got a chance to rest on Tuesday against the Raptors but his status likely won't be determined until closer to tip-off. If Miles is forced to sit again, expect Rodney Stuckey to be the primary beneficiary, with C.J. Watson and Damjan Rudez picking up some additional minutes as well. Rotoworld.com

    • Evan Turner (thumb) good to go Wednesday
      Evan Turner (thumb) said that his thumb has improved and that he will play vs. Minnesota.

      Advice: X-rays taken on his thumb were negative so this news confirms that the coast is clear for Turner. He has been solid since being named the starting point guard in Boston, and while he is much better in points formats, he's still worth owing in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jose Calderon (knee) listed as out Wednesday
      Jose Calderon (knee) is listed as out for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

      Advice: He suffered a knee contusion last Friday and it looks like he could spend some additional time on the sidelines, but we will consider him day-to-day for now. Langston Galloway has started at point guard in Calderon's absence and just recently signed a new deal with the Knicks, so if you are in need of a guard he definitely deserves a long look.

    • Mo Williams (personal) will not play Wed
      Mo Williams (personal) will not play on Wednesday against the Celtics, but will join up with the team on Thursday.

      Advice: He has also been battling a hip injury, so Williams probably wouldn't have been able to play anyways. With Ricky Rubio (ankle) still sidelined, rookie Zach LaVine will likely step into the starting lineup while newly acquired Lorenzo Brown could see some action as well. However, neither LaVine or Brown are reliable enough to use outside of deeper leagues, so feel free to leave them on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Danny Green currently battling fatigue
      Danny Green is in the midst of a major shooting slump, but a lot of that has to do with the fact that he has seen an increased workload this season.

      Advice: "Some days the energy is there," said Green. "Some days, you’re fighting to find it." He is averaging a career-high 30.1 minutes per game, and currently leads the Spurs in minutes played so far this season. Over his last four games, he has made just 8-of-33 shots, including 6-of-21 from 3-point range. He should be able to turn things around soon, but knowing coach Gregg Popovich it's very possible that Green misses a game or two down the stretch in order to keep him fresh for playoffs.

      John Wall is reportedly dealing with a sore left Achilles, minor ankle sprains on both feet, and he was dealing with a migraine during Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

      Advice: "He fought through a lot of different things," coach Randy Wittman said of Wall. "He's beat up a little bit. He's under the weather a little bit. But John loves playing. That's why I love that kid. It takes a lot for him to miss a game." To be clear, Wall is not expected to miss any time, but this simply speaks volumes of his toughness.

    • Thunder still undecided on Reggie Jackson
      The Thunder are reportedly still weighing the pros and cons of trading Reggie Jackson.

      Advice: It's not surprising to see the Thunder considering a trade, as Jackson is going to become a restricted free agent in the Summer and they might not be able to afford him. The addition of Dion Waiters only made things worse, as Jackson's minutes have been trending down and he has reportedly had some issues with some of his teammates. Nothing is certain at the moment, but owners in most leagues should consider stashing Jackson for now in the hope that he is traded before the Feb. 19 deadline. Rotoworld.com

      John Wall wasn't bothered by his sore Achilles on Tuesday, as he piled up 21 points on 8-of-12 FGs, nine rebounds, 13 assists in a comeback win vs. the Lakers.

      Advice: He shot an unusually awful 5-of-12 at the FT line with four turnovers, but added three steals and it's all gravy for owners who weren't even sure if he'd suit up tonight. Wall has been perfectly durable over the past two seasons and his owners shouldn't fret about his minor ailment -- start him with confidence vs. the Suns on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

    • John Wall (Achilles) starts vs. L.A. Tuesday
      John Wall (sore Achilles) will start vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

      Advice: He was a game-time decision and the Wizards announced his availability literally a minute before the 10:30 start time. Fantasy owners who went out on a limb should expect at least three quarters of terrific production before the game gets out of hand, while those who gambled on Garrett Temple or Andre Miller are left regretting the decision.

    • Greivis Vasquez quiet in 28 minutes vs Pacers
      Greivis Vasquez played 28 minutes on Tuesday but had only seven points, four rebounds and four assists in the Raptors' 104-91 victory.

      Advice: He shot 2-of-6 from the field and has taken more than 10 shots just three times in January. DeMar DeRozan's return has ensured that Vasquez's usage rate won't improve despite his newly-minted starting job. Consider him a low-end option who can help with 3-pointers and assists, but little else. Rotoworld.com

      George Hill played exactly 20 minutes on Tuesday, hitting 5-of-14 shots with two 3-pointers to finish with 13 points, two boards, three assists and one steal.

      Advice: The limit will stay in place indefinitely to prevent any setbacks to Hill's slow-healing groin injury. He prefers a bench role for the moment, as it ensures that he can play the final five minutes of games, and fantasy owners just have to hang onto him and wait for his playing time to increase.

    • Jimmy Butler (illness) out vs. the Warriors
      Jimmy Butler (illness) will not play on Tuesday against the Warriors.

      Advice: This is a tough blow for his owners but Butler should be fine with a couple days rest. We will go ahead and consider him questionable for Thursday's game against the Lakers, but in the meantime we would expect Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich to see an uptick in minutes in Butler's absence.

      An MRI taken on Tuesday night confirmed that Nick Young suffered a moderate ankle sprain, and he is being considered questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls.

      Advice: He obviously won't play tonight, but it's definitely a good sign that the injury isn't too serious. Young was benched down the stretch during Sunday's game due to a lack of effort, but the Lakers are obviously going to need his scoring punch with the news that Kobe Bryant (shoulder) is likely out for the season, so owners should consider holding onto him. Expect Wayne Ellington, Jordan Clarkson and Jeremy Lin to benefit in the short-term. Rotoworld.com

    • Tony Allen (ankle) will not play on Tuesday
      Tony Allen (ankle) will not play in Tuesday's game against Dallas.

      Advice: Allen was recently benched in favor of Jeff Green, so this news certainly doesn't help his already limited value. Expect Courtney Lee, Jeff Green and Vince Carter to pick up the slack for Memphis on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

    • John Wall (Achilles) questionable for Tuesday
      John Wall (sore left Achilles) did not participate during shootaround, and is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

      Advice: This is the first time we're hearing of any Achilles soreness for Wall, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. It's worth noting that Wall has yet to miss a game since the 2012-13 season, but with the Wizards going up against a hapless Lakers squad, there's certainly a chance Washington gives their franchise-player some rest tonight. Andre Miller would likely draw the start if Wall is forced to sit, with Bradley Beal also seeing some increased opportunity. Rotoworld.com

    • Nick Young getting an MRI on his ankle Tues.
      Updating a previous report, Nick Young is currently undergoing an MRI on his sprained right ankle, and is looking unlikely for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.

      Advice: We'll have a better idea of Young's status once the results of the MRI are released, but at this point it would be shocking if he's able to play. The Lakers are currently calling his injury a moderate sprain, and if he's forced to sit, Wayne Ellington, Jordan Clarkson, and Jeremy Lin would all stand to benefit. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Nick Young (ankle) will not play on Tuesday
      Nick Young (ankle) will not play against the Wizards on Tuesday.

      Advice: He sprained his ankle in practice on Monday and the Lakers will allow him to heal. Young made just 33.3 percent from the field over the last month and remains one of the worst players inside of the arc. He's not a must-own player and his efficiency has dropped without Kobe Bryant. With Swaggy out, the Lakers will use some two-point guard sets -- they used those for 11 minutes on Sunday -- and Wayne Ellington will also have some more run in a bad matchup. Jordan Clarkson might benefit the most. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Martin (wrist) will not play Wednesday
      Updating a previous report, Kevin Martin (wrist) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics.

      Advice: Martin was able to resume shooting workouts on Monday after having fluid drained from his surgically-repaired wrist last week, but he will remain sidelined for Wednesday's game. He's likely going to be eased back into the rotation upon his return, so owners will need to remain patient. However, he still offers enough upside to be worth holding onto in most leagues.

    • George Hill will remain with minutes limit
      Head coach Frank Vogel reiterated on Tuesday that George Hill's minutes will be capped at around 20 minutes per game for the foreseeable future.

      Advice: "We don't want [Hill] to re-injure [his groin]," Vogel said. "It's not a challenge from my standpoint to keep him at that because once we started expanding [the minutes played] the last time we lost him for 11 games, and we're not interested in doing that again." A minutes limit can be viewed as a good thing for a guy who has been sidelined for much of the season, and he was able to score 17 points during his last outing despite the minutes restriction. He needs to be owned in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Deron Williams out vs Hawks on Wednesday
      Deron Williams (ribs) will miss Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

      Advice: Williams was able to participate in the non-contact parts of practice on Tuesday, but he will miss his tenth consecutive game on Wednesday. Jarrett Jack will again get the start in D-Will's place and will likely continue to start in the short-term once Williams returns as the Nets ease him back into the rotation. Rotoworld.com

      Jimmy Butler (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

      Advice: Butler missed Tuesday's shootaround, so his owners should prepare for the possibility that he misses Tuesday's game. We'll update Jimmy's status as soon as more information becomes available, but Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich would be the biggest beneficiaries if Butler sits. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Martin hopes to play vs BOS on Weds
      Kevin Martin returned to shooting workouts on Monday and is hopeful that he'll be able to play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

      Advice: This is the first time that Martin has been able to shoot since he had fluid drained from his surgicallyrepaired wrist nearly a week ago. "It feels better now than it did when I started practicing two weeks ago," said Martin, out since November. "Getting it drained helps a lot. I’ll give it one more hard day of practice and see how I feel." We'll update Martin's status after Wednesday's shootaround, but his eventual return will cut into the production of Mo Williams, Thaddeus Young, and Andrew Wiggins. Rotoworld.com

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

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

    • X-rays on Turner's thumb return negative
      X-rays taken on Evan Turner's thumb returned negative, but there has been no update on his status for Wednesday's game against the Wolves.

      Advice: Turner said he "re-sprained it" and that the "same thing happened three times accidentally by the same dude." Owners of Turner might want to wait-and-see before dropping him and likewise, the Marcus Smart show might have to wait a little bit longer. Rotoworld.com

      Gordon Hayward scored 26 points on 7-of-17 shooting (including four threes) with six rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks in Monday's home loss to the Celtics.

      Advice: Hayward hit 8-of-12 free throws and pushes his value up to top 25-40 levels after this voluminous effort. Rotoworld.com

    • Turner getting thumb X-rayed after Mon's game
      Evan Turner left Monday's game and would eventually return after re-injuring his thumb, finishing with nine points on 2-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 21 minutes.

      Advice: Turner is getting the thumb X-rayed and this could be the moment they pass the torch between he and Marcus Smart. Or not. Either way, the momentum Turner had been showing in fantasy leagues gets stopped with tonight's outcome and he wasn't a high upside player to begin with in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Reggie Jackson played well with Kevin Durant out on Monday, scoring 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds, two assists and three steals in 26 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: The Durant absence is an obvious caveat and this isn't a line you're going to write home about anyway. The only real reason to hold Jackson is as a trade deadline stash, and owners should probably give a trade a 50/50 chance at this time and that might be optimistic. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo Williams (hip) questionable for Wednesday
      Mo Williams (hip) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

      Advice: Flip Saunders said that he is "pretty questionable" after the way he played on Monday following an apparent hip injury on Sunday. The 1-for-10 shooting performance on Monday certainly reflects that, and this means Zach LaVine (11 points, one three, five boards, one assist, 23 minutes) could be on your radar in DFS games.

      Mo Williams hit just 1-of-10 shots on Monday, finishing with four points, zero rebounds, three assist and two steals.

      Avery Bradley (thumb) will play against the Jazz.

    • Tony Allen (ankle) will not play on Monday
      Tony Allen (ankle) will not play against the Magic on Monday.

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

      Nick Young sprained his right ankle in practice on Monday and is questionable to play against the Wizards on Tuesday.

      Advice: It's strange timing with Young being benched on Sunday night because coach Byron Scott said Young looked like he "didn't want to be here." He's probably a little closer to doubtful, but his owners will want to check back tomorrow for an update. If he's out, Wayne Ellington, Jeremy Lin and Wes Johnson benefit most. Rotoworld.com

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

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

    • Kevin Martin questionable to suit up Monday
      Kevin Martin (wrist) is questionable to play on Monday against the Thunder.

      Advice: Martin has been listed as questionable since last week, so there hasn't necessarily been a change in his status. On a seven-win team that's prioritizing rebuilding, Martin appears to be taking his time to return from his wrist injury. The Wolves should have incentive to get him on the floor to showcase him for a potential trade, but not much reason beyond that. Rotoworld.com

    • Avery Bradley has injuries to both hands now
      Avery Bradley, who had already been dealing with a jammed left thumb, is now dealing with a bruised right hand as well.

      Advice: Bradley said the bruised hand is something he's been dealing with "for a while." It doesn't appear as if either issue is going to keep him off the floor for now, but the injuries will likely be slow to heal since Bradley needs his hands to play basketball. It may become an issue of maintenance and pain tolerance as Bradley continues to play through it for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Nick Young benched Sunday, logs eight minutes
      Nick Young went scoreless in eight minutes off the Lakers' bench on Sunday, and Byron Scott said afterward that Young looked as though he "didn't want to be here."

      Advice: There was no swag tonight as Young missed both of his shot attempts and turned the ball over three times in a sloppy performance which led Scott to bench him. L.A.'s rotations are a complete mess and Young doesn't do much beyond scoring on a good night, so owners must brace themselves for some turbulent production. Rotoworld.com

      Evan Turner had a strong showing against the Warriors on Sunday, scoring 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting to go with seven boards, seven assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

      Advice: Turner has never been known for his efficiency or for his defensive ability, so this line was definitely a pleasant surprise. While he will always be tough to own in standard leagues for his shooting percentages and turnovers, Turner will continue to be a solid asset in points leagues as long as he continues to run the show in Boston.

      Avery Bradley jammed his thumb during on Sunday vs. the Warriors, but stayed in the game and finished with 15 points, three boards, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

      Advice: His thumb was heavily wrapped after the game but it doesn't appear like he is in danger of missing any time. While he has scored 15 or more points in his last three games, Bradley doesn't contribute in many other areas and should only be considered for owners in desperate need of 3-pointers. As always, we will update his status as soon as more details emerge. Rotoworld.com

    • Wizards win in OT behind John Wall's 19 & 16
      John Wall led the Wizards to an overtime win in Denver on Sunday, scoring 19 points and dishing out 16 assists, one shy of his career high.

      Advice: Wall made 8-of-16 shots including one 3-pointer and he was huge down the stretch, scoring or assisting on six of Washington's scoring plays. He added one steal with only two turnovers in tonight's high-scoring affair, and he's overtaken Ty Lawson for the league-lead in assists with 10.1 per game. When you eliminate turnovers from the equation, Wall's fantasy valuation leaps into the top-25. Rotoworld.com

    • Stephen Curry drops 22 pts with 11 assists
      Stephen Curry dropped 21 points on 6-of-16 shooting in a win over the Celtics on Sunday, adding 11 assists, four boards, two steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

      Advice: The Warriors have now won 19 straight games at home which is easily a franchise record, and Curry has been one of the main reasons why they have had so much success. Curry will likely remain a top-3 fantasy asset the rest of the way, and his hunt for the MVP award should only motivate him even more. Rotoworld.com

    • Danny Green's slump continues on Sunday
      Danny Green couldn't break out of his cold spell against the Bucks on Sunday, scoring just three points on 1-of-9 shooting while adding two boards, three assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes.

      Advice: He has now failed to score in double digits for the fourth game in a row, and it's obvious that he is losing confidence quickly. Green was in the midst of an incredible season prior to this slump, so his owners should hold onto him in the hope that he turns it around soon. Rotoworld.com

    • Kawhi Leonard tweaks ankle in win vs. Bucks
      Kawhi Leonard briefly left Sunday's game against the Bucks with a tweaked ankle, but returned shortly after to the tune of 19 points, 14 boards, two assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

      Advice: He was in the locker room for just a few minutes and didn't appear to be limited at all by his ankle. It's possible that he deals with some swelling in the coming days, but the Spurs are off until Wednesday so he should have plenty of time to recover. This is the kind of stat line that Leonard can put up on any given night, so it looks like he will continue to reward his patient owners for the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com

    • Monta Ellis drops 36 points in road defeat
      Monta Ellis notched his seventh 30-point game of the season on Sunday, pouring in 36 points on 16-of-27 shooting in a narrow road loss to the Pelicans.

      Advice: In the process, Ellis became the league leader in crunch-time scoring with 94 points in the 'clutch,' as defined by NBA.com. He drained four 3-pointers tonight, with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and only one turnover, and this may have been his most well-rounded line all season. Unlike teammate Chandler Parsons, the arrival of Rajon Rondo hasn't slowed Ellis down a bit. Rotoworld.com

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

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

      George Hill (groin) excelled in only 20 minutes off the Pacers bench, finishing Sunday's road victory with 17 points on 7-of-15 shooting, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

      Advice: Indiana will play it safe with Hill to avoid aggravating his groin injury, so his minutes may stay low a while longer. He'll retake the starting PG job before long, however, and has too much upside to be floating on the waiver wire in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo Williams racks up 20 points w/ full line
      Mo Williams piled up 20 points, four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, six assists and one steal in a losing effort vs. the Hawks on Sunday.

      Advice: Williams looked spry after skipping Saturday's practice to rest due to general soreness. The veteran PG remains a solid play while starting for Minnesota, but his rest-of-season outlook isn't great. In addition to the impending return of Ricky Rubio, the 7-36 Wolves are likely to turn rookie Zach LaVine loose at some point after the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com

      Jimmy Butler was held to just five points during Sunday's loss to the Heat, adding five rebounds, two assists, and one steal over 42.5 minutes of action.

      Advice: Butler shot just 2-of-8 from the field, so while the minutes were there, the scoring simply wasn't. Luol Deng was playing some vicious defense today, and this was easily Butler's worst game of the season. However, Butler has not had two bad back-to-back games this season, so expect him to bounce-back during Tuesday's matchup with the Warriors. Rotoworld.com

      Kevin Martin (wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Hawks.

      Advice: Martin was listed as questionable earlier, but he is still dealing with some swelling in his wrist, so he will not play on Sunday. Robbie Hummel will draw another start on Sunday, but the true beneficiaries of Martin's absence remain Andrew Wiggins and Mo Williams. Rotoworld.com

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

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

      Kevin Martin (wrist) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Hawks.

      Advice: He wasn't able to practice on Saturday and he is reportedly still dealing with some swelling in his wrist, so he is probably closer to doubtful. Martin is still worth a stash for his upside in points and 3-pointers, but his owners will have to be patient as he will likely be eased into action when he does return. If Martin can't play, Robbie Hummel will continue to start for Minnesota, but is only an option in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Jose Calderon's (knee) status for Monday's game against Sacramento is uncertain at this point according to coach Derek Fisher.

      Advice: Coach Fisher did say that Calderon was making good progress, but we would guess that he is closer to doubtful considering that he didn't even make the trip to Charlotte on Saturday. If Calderon is unable to play, Langston Galloway will get another chance to run the show for New York with Shane Larkin picking up a few more minutes off the bench. If you are in need of a guard, Galloway deserves a long look. Rotoworld.com

    • Goran Dragic would consider return to Houston
      Goran Dragic said that he will keep an open mind in free agency, and that he would even consider a return to Houston.

      Advice: "Every team in the NBA is an option to me, because it is a privilege to play for any team in the NBA," Dragic said. "When the time comes I’m going to sit down with my family and my agent and try to make the best decision for myself." It's no secret that Dragic has drawn plenty of interest from several teams, as he has really taken a step forward in his development in recent years. However, despite all the rumors it doesn't appear that Phoenix is willing to trade him at this point in the season and they will likely have to risk letting him walk in free agency without getting anything in return. As always, we will continue to monitor this situation closely. Rotoworld.com

    • Lance Stephenson ignoring trade rumors
      Lance Stephenson has seen his name pop up in trade rumors all season, but he is doing his best to ignore them in an effort to help Charlotte secure a spot in the playoffs.

      Advice: "You can't help but hear stuff," said Stephenson. "I just want to stay focused and stay positive and try to help this team. I'm here, and that's all that matters right now." Stephenson played almost 29 minutes on Saturday which is the most he had played since going down with a pelvis injury, so it looks like he is getting close to 100 percent. While the rumors won't stop until all the way up to the trade deadline, a trade wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing considering how much he has struggled to adapt in Charlotte. Rotoworld.com

    • John Wall scores 25 points vs. Blazers
      John Wall scored a team-high 25 points against the Blazers during a 103-96 loss on Saturday, adding four rebounds, nine assists and one steal.

      Advice: It's his first 20-point game in his last five tries and it was also the first time he was above 50 percent from the field in that span, too. Wall's offensive numbers are going down a bit due to a drop in efficiency and usage rate, but he's still leading the NBA in assists per game with over two steals per game. He's a stud. Rotoworld.com

      Jarrett Jack scored 16 points with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer against the Jazz during a 108-73 loss on Saturday.

      Advice: Deron Williams (ribs) could be back at some point, but Jack is just playing too well for his owners to make a proactive cut. He is worth owning in all standard leagues even though there's a chance he's traded for a draft pick. Rotoworld.com

    • Lance Stephenson battles groin injury
      Lance Stephenson played 29 minutes off the bench against the Knicks on Saturday with six points, three rebounds, four assists and two steals.

      Advice: He was laboring through his groin strain throughout the first half and finally got into a rhythm in the second half. Stephenson ran the offense tonight with Kemba Walker (knee) out and it resembled his style of play in Indiana. Walker won't be out long, so Stephenson's adjustment period should continue. He's a fringe player to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: It sounds like a day off for the 32-year-old veteran. Williams as struggled in his last three games, making just 8-of-35 (22.9 percent) from the field over his last three. He should play Sunday against the Hawks. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: The severity of the soreness is not known, but this certainly isn't good news. Hill has dealt with his groin strain for basically three years and he's already aggravated it once. He'll likely be on a minutes limit again on Sunday and is more of a stash. Donald Sloan may still see a few more minutes. Rotoworld.com

      Jose Calderon (knee) is unsure if he will be able to play vs. Charlotte on Saturday.

      Advice: He suffered a contusion during the third quarter of Friday's game and was unable to return, and also wasn't able to put any weight on his left leg after it happened. X-rays were negative, but it sounds like Calderon is much closer to doubtful for this contest. If he does end up missing time, Shane Larkin would likely draw the start and would be a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues, while Langston Galloway would have even more opportunity to build on his momentum. We will continue to provide updates as needed. Rotoworld.com

    • Deron Williams out as expected on Saturday
      Deron Williams (ribs) is out as expected on Saturday against the Jazz.

      Advice: After getting in some work on the practice floor this week, there is reportedly a chance that D-Will could return for Monday's home game against Portland, but owners shouldn't hold their breath. We should know more about his status by the end of the weekend, so owners should check back for updates. Jarrett Jack will continue to run the show for Brooklyn in Williams' absence. Rotoworld.com

    • Bradley scores 18 points with four threes
      Avery Bradley scored 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting (including four threes) with six rebounds and one assist in Friday's win.

      Advice: Bradley has been a low-end value and with Jeff Green out he might be a bit more consistent now. Give him a look if you need a 3-point shooter. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:30 am
    • Kawhi goes for 15 and 14 vs. the Lakers
      Kawhi Leonard scored 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including a three) with 14 rebounds, three assists and two steals in the Spurs' 99-85 win over the Lakers on Friday.

      Advice: So far so good with regard to Leonard's hand and obviously if he's on the floor the production is going to be there. He's returning top 20-25 value on a per-game basis so far. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:06 am
    • Young scores 17 points with three treys
      Nick Young scored 17 points on 5-of-11 shooting with three treys and a 4-of-4 mark from the line in Friday's loss.

      Advice: Young didn't have any other stats and while that's not too shocking the 20 minutes is pretty annoying with Kobe Bryant out. Byron Scott played nine players between 19-29 minutes tonight and has been a mess in the fantasy sense, and he hasn't been all that impressive in the reality sense either. But Young should be owned in all formats with an excellent shot to be productive with Kobe Bryant expected to be out for the year. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo-Will double-doubles on Friday vs. Pellies
      Mo Williams double-doubled against the Pelicans on Friday, scoring 12 points on 3-of-10 shooting with three rebounds, 10 assists and 6-of-7 makes from the foul line.

      Advice: Williams hit just 2-of-12 shots and he's going to be inefficient shooting the ball, but until Ricky Rubio returns here soon the double-double chances are good every night. Owners should ride Williams until the wheels fall off. Rotoworld.com

    • Monta gets back on track in loss to Bulls
      Monta Ellis got back on track with 17 points on 7-of-18 shooting, two rebounds, four assists and five steals in Friday's loss to the Bulls.

      Advice: Ellis isn't one to struggle for long. Tyson Chandler joined him on the right side of the stat sheet with 10 and 12 with a steal and five blocks, and Dirk Nowitzki continued to heat up with 24 and seven with two threes and a block. Chandler Parsons added 19 points with two steals and a three in the loss. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:25 pm
    • Butler posts 20-8-6 line in win over Mavs
      Jimmy Butler scored 20 points on 8-of-18 shooting (no threes) with eight rebounds, six assists and three steals in Friday's win over the Mavs.

      Advice: Butler put his foot back on the gas pedal after Derrick Rose's surge slowed him down a bit. Rose scored 20 points on 7-of-17 shooting with three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and five turnovers, and it wouldn't be surprising if Butler got back some of his touches now that Rose appears to have re-established a foundation for himself. Pau Gasol added 13 points, 16 boards, a steal and a block in the win. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:18 pm
    • George Hill (groin) logs 20 minutes in return
      George Hill (groin) returned to action in Friday's loss to the Heat, scoring 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting (no threes) with zero rebounds, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes.

      Advice: This is pretty much on par with what we expected and he should not be floating around any waiver wires. As long as he is healthy he'll be a major part of the Pacers' attack and has mid-round upside. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:44 pm
    • Goran Dragic benched late after tech
      Goran Dragic did not play down the stretch on Friday, finishing with two points and two assists in 18 minutes.

      Advice: There's talk of coach Jeff Hornacek benching Dragic because of his technical foul and a new team rule that says a player will be benched after a tech. Dragic should be fine for his next game, but he will have his bad games due to the Suns' depth at guard. Rotoworld.com

    • Jackson plays 25 minutes against the Hawks
      Reggie Jackson scored seven points on 3-of-8 shooting with four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: The line isn't bad but he's having to stretch hard to produce anything workable in fantasy leagues. He's not going to be a guy that owners want to rely on if he's in OKC, and the best we can call him is a stash in the hopes he gets moved by the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 8:55 pm
    • Lance Stephenson hands out nine dimes
      Lance Stephenson handed out nine assists against the Cavs on Friday with 10 points, and four boards in 26 minutes.

      Advice: He didn't play as poorly as some of his teammates, but Stephenson is still out of sync with his new team. He's not a must-own player and it might be a few more weeks until he is start-worthy in standard leagues. Stephenson also didn't blow into LeBron James' ear tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:58 pm
    • Jose Calderon suffers knee contusion vs. Magic
      Jose Calderon suffered a knee contusion on Friday and will not return.

      Advice: X-rays were negative, so the good news is that he didn't break anything. He looked to have banged knees with Elfrid Payton and couldn't put any weight on his left leg on his way to the locker room. If he's out, Shane Larkin is the favorite to start and he'd be worth a look in 14- and 16-team leagues. Langston Galloway would also get more run. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 6:07 pm
    • C.J. Miles (groin) out for game vs. Heat
      C.J. Miles (left groin) will not return against the Heat on Friday.

      Advice: He has dealt with groin issues before and he's probably going to miss time. Chris Copeland and Damjan Rudez could get more minutes, but C.J. Watson and Rodney Stuckey may get some additional run. If you're sick of dealing with Miles, we don't blame you for dropping him. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 5:53 pm
    • C.J. Miles (groin) questionable to return
      C.J. Miles (groin) is questionable to return against the Heat on Friday.

      Advice: He just can't stay healthy. Whether it's a calf, an eye issue, or anything, Miles just seems to inexplicably miss games this season. Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Watson will get a few more minutes. Miles checked out after six minutes with eight points, one assist and one 3-pointer. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 5:05 pm
    • George Hill (groin) will be active for Friday
      George Hill (groin) will be on the active roster for Friday's game vs. Miami.

      Advice: While he isn't starting, is appears that he will play, and that will likely hurt the value of C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan. He's not a must-start guy tonight as he'll likely be eased back into things, but he deserves to be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 3:48 pm
    • C.J. Miles starting, Rodney Stuckey to bench
      C.J. Miles will start in place of Rodney Stuckey on Friday night against the Heat.

      Advice: This move is likely to prepare for George Hill eventually moving into the starting lineup -- Hill is coming off the bench tonight. Miles is going to take a lot of 3-pointers in the first unit and he could have some other stats, but he's really not a reliable fantasy option with his woeful field goal shooting. If you need treys, he's worth a look. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 3:29 pm
    • George Hill (groin) expected to play vs. Heat
      George Hill (groin) is expected to return to action vs. the Heat on Friday.

      Advice: Hill won't immediately join the starting lineup but his return is still bad news for the limited value of C.J. Watson and Donald Sloan. Hill hasn't played since Dec. 31 and may need a few games to scrape off the rust, but he belongs on a roster in all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:14 am
    • Deron Williams (ribs) moves well in workout
      Deron Williams (ribs) has been ruled out until at least Monday's home game, but he was able to participate in an on-court workout Thursday.

      Advice: Williams has fractured rib cartilage but he moved with ease on Thursday, "even doing a little bit of quick post-ups with minimal contact." Darius Morris has assumed backup PG duties in D-Will's absence but Jarrett Jack has done the heavy lifting, averaging 34.8 minutes as Brooklyn's starter. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:05 am
    • Evan Turner hits game-winning 3-pointer
      Evan Turner hit a game-winning corner 3-pointer against the Blazers during the 90-89 victory on Thursday, scoring 10 points with six rebounds, eight assists, one steal, four turnovers and one other 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

      Advice: The Celtics snapped their 24-game road losing streak against Western Conference teams tonight and Turner apparently knew his clutch shot was going down. "Not to be arrogant, I did actually," he said. "I prayed prior to it to make a big shot. And it happened." Turner has actually been effective on his corner 3-pointers, making 10-of-20 from there on the year. Clutch shot aside, he's still a questionable player to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 12:09 am
    • Jarrett Jack really struggles on Thursday
      Jarrett Jack didn't have it on Thursday during a 123-84 loss to the Clippers, making 3-of-11 from the field for seven points with one rebound, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

      Advice: He didn't play in the fourth quarter with the Nets already down 40 points. Jack is logging major minutes and was at 40.0 per game in his previous two, so he's a must-start player right now due to his output in points, assists, steals and treys. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 10:34 pm
    • Gordon Hayward scores 24 points vs. Bucks
      Gordon Hayward carried the Jazz down the stretch during a 101-99 win on Thursday in Milwaukee with 24 points, six rebounds, six assists, two steals, two 3-pointers and six turnovers in 35 minutes.

      Advice: His numbers have been trending down on the season, so this big game was nice to see. In fact, Hayward's points and rebounds have decreased in each of the last three months of the season. The Jazz will get to host the struggling Nets on Saturday, so expect Hayward to have success again. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 9:59 pm
    • Jimmy Butler plays just 28 minutes
      Jimmy Butler played just 28 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday with 17 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers on 4-of-9 from the field.

      Advice: He was in foul trouble tonight, which is a very rare occurrence for Butler this season. Tonight was just the second game all season in which Butler was below 34 minutes. Jimmy Minutes has turned into Jimmy Buckets and he's starting to come out of his slump to start 2015. He should be viewed as an early-round fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:05 pm
    • Kawhi Leonard cools off due to garbage time
      Kawhi Leonard scored a team-high 16 points against the Bulls on Thursday with four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

      Advice: He scored the Spurs' final 11 points of the first half, but was fairly quiet the rest of the game. Leonard has added a handful of new offensive moves and coach Gregg Popovich has held up his end of the bargain that he will run plays for the reigning Finals MVP. Leonard gets the Lakers at home on Friday night and could have a big game. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 7:39 pm
    • Stephen Curry leads votes for All-Star Team
      Stephen Curry, Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis and Marc Gasol were voted in as the starters for the Western Conference All-Star Team.

      Advice: Curry was the top vote getter and he deserves it with his team holding the best record in the NBA. Kobe Bryant is likely going to miss the All-Star game with his rotator cuff tear, so James Harden or Klay Thompson will likely replace him. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 4:22 pm
    • Nick Young (thumb) is probable for Friday
      Nick Young has a sprained right thumb and is listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

      Advice: This is the first we are hearing about his thumb but he should be fine for Friday's game. We just learned that Kobe Bryant could be sidelined for quite some time due to a tear in his rotator cuff, so Young shouldn't be floating around many waiver wires at this point. We will pass along additional updates as needed. Rotoworld.com

    • George Hill (groin) now questionable Friday
      George Hill (groin) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday's game vs. the Heat.

      Advice: He has been sidelined since Dec. 31, so this is welcome news for his owners. Hill's return would likely send C.J. Watson back to the bench, ruining his already limited value. Donald Sloan would also likely fall out of the rotation completely, so owners in deep leagues should have another plan ready. If Hill is somehow available in your league, he is more than worth a look. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 12:52 pm
    • Stephen Curry torches Rockets for win
      Stephen Curry hit 7-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers for 22 points, three rebounds, 10 assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Rockets.

      Advice: Patrick Beverley didn't slow him or Klay Thompson down tonight and Curry is going to start for the Western All-Stars, although that won't be official until later on Thursday. The Warriors have now won 17 straight games at home, which is a franchise record. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:50 pm
    • Jarrett Jack has another nice effort in win
      Jarrett Jack had a productive game in a 103-100 win at Sacramento on Wednesday with 16 points, four rebounds, eight assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

      Advice: Deron Williams (ribs) is going to miss at least the next three games and there's a decent chance we don't see him this month. Even once he does return. Jack's minutes should be safe in the 20s and he'll likely start, as well. He should be owned everywhere. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:23 pm
    • Greivis Vasquez shoots 1-of-8 in start vs MEM
      Greivis Vasquez started Wednesday's game in Memphis, but finished with only three points on 1-of-8 shooting in the Raptors' road loss.

      Advice: Vasquez logged 22 minutes and he's been underwhelming since overtaking Terrence Ross for a starting job. He chipped in two steals tonight and deep-league owners may find him to be a worthwhile gamble, but everyone should avoid him while Kyle Lowry, DeMar DeRozan, James Johnson and Ross are all healthy. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:37 pm
    • Nick Young struggles in Kobe's return
      Nick Young hit just 3-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for nine points in 19 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: Young went off on Monday with 24 points while Kobe Bryant watched in street clothes, but Kobe was back for tonight's game. Of course, Young has struggled for the most of the season with or without Kobe, but we like his chances better for success on nights when Bryant isn't playing. Kobe's shoulder was bothering him tonight and we still think Young should be held once the Kobe Shutdown finally happens. Rotoworld.com

    • Jose Calderon scores 15 points vs. Philly
      Jose Calderon played well against the 76ers on Wednesday with 15 points, five rebounds, seven assists and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

      Advice: This was a long overdue for Calderon. In his previous 10 games, he managed to make just 33.0 percent from the field for averages of 7.7 points, 2.8 boards and 3.8 assists. Calderon is usually a nine-category stud, so there's certainly a chance he can keep the ball rolling against the Magic on Friday. He's worth owning in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:23 pm
    • Monta Ellis struggles in win over Wolves
      Monta Ellis hit just 3-of-12 shots for seven points, zero rebounds, three assists and three steals in Wednesday's win.

      Advice: He had similar struggles a week ago, hitting 1-of-11 shots for five points, but outside of these two games, is having a big season. He'll bounce back in his next game. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:21 pm
    • Mo Williams disappoints on Wednesday
      Mo Williams hit just 2-of-12 shots for five points and five assists in Wednesday's loss.

      Advice: He was a disaster tonight, but as long as Ricky Rubio is out, Williams will be much better than this on most nights. Rotoworld.com

    • Lance Stephenson too quiet in win over Heat
      Lance Stephenson played 22 minutes on Wednesday but had just four points, three rebounds, four assists and four turnovers on 2-of-4 shooting.

      Advice: Stephenson's disastrous season continues now that he's healthy again and it's just tough to tell if he's ever going to get it going. But the way he's played up to this point, he's simply not a must-own player. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:21 pm
    • Deron Williams (ribs) out for current road trip
      Deron Williams (ribs) will not play on the current road trip.

      Advice: That means he's out until at least Monday against the Blazers. Williams is still experiencing pain, but he is doing some on-court work. It'll be Jarrett Jack starting for the foreseeable future, so he's worth owning in all leagues right now. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 5:47 pm
    • Kawhi Leonard grabs career-high 15 rebounds
      Kawhi Leonard tied his career-high with 15 rebounds during Tuesday's road win in Denver, adding 17 points with three 3-pointers, three assists, two steals and one block.

      Advice: This was Leonard's eighth double-digit rebounding game of the season, and he racked up tonight's stats in just 31 minutes of action. The numbers agree with the eye-test where Leonard is concerned, as he's peaking at career-high levels in rebound rate (13.3 percent), usage rate (22.7 percent), assist rate (12.9 percent) and PER (19.4). The sky is the limit for San Antonio's rising star. Rotoworld.com

    • Danny Green quiet vs. Nuggets on Tuesday
      Danny Green had a quiet game vs. the Nuggets, scoring six points on 2-of-12 shooting with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block.

      Advice: The pair of 3s and defensive stats prop up the line for fantasy purposes, which isn't uncommon for the six-year veteran. He's notching 12.7 points, 2.5 threes, 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.1 blocks this season, and the return of Kawhi Leonard may actually help him in the long run -- he's shooting 50.0 percent with Kawhi alongside him this season, but just 41.7 percent when Kawhi isn't on the court. Rotoworld.com

      Reggie Jackson caught fire in 26 minutes vs. the Heat on Tuesday, making 7-of-9 shots to finish with 16 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one assist in OKC's road win.

      Advice: Dion Waiters was struggling so Jackson stayed on the court down the stretch, and the two backup guards are liable to frustrate owners by alternating explosive games with flat-out duds. A trade would send Jackson's value sky-rocketing, but he's averaging 21.4 minutes in January and is a marginal option until further notice. Rotoworld.com

    • Deron Williams ruled out for Wednesday vs SAC
      Deron Williams (fractured rib cartilage) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

      Advice: Updated a previous item, Williams will still travel with the Nets on their three-game road trip despite this news. The Nets visit the Clippers and Jazz on Thursday and Saturday, so it's possible we still see D-Will return during the road trip. For now, Jarrett Jack remains a solid fantasy start for Wednesday's game. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 10:42 am
    • Deron Williams will travel with Nets
      Deron Williams (fractured rib cartilage) will travel with the Nets on their three-game road trip.

      Advice: The Nets will provide an update on Williams on in advance of their game against the Kings on Wednesday, but it's looking like he's inching closer to a return. Jarrett Jack will likely continue to start for the short-term even when Williams is able to return, but his fantasy value will ultimately take a hit once Williams is back on the court. Rotoworld.com

    • Dragic posts 24-9-5 line in win over Lakers
      Goran Dragic scored 24 points on 11-of-15 shooting with nine rebounds, five assists and a steal in the Suns' 115-100 win over the Lakers on Monday.

      Advice: Dragic and the other guards have steadily improved as the season has gone on, and he's returning top-50 value after a really shaky start. Eric Bledsoe added 17 points, five rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two threes in the win. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 12:43 am
    • Vasquez posts low-end line in start
      Greivis Vasquez started at shooting guard in Monday's win, scoring 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with two rebounds, three assists and one triple in 31 minutes of action.

      Advice: Vasquez isn't a good bet to produce more than this with the Raptors at full strength so he's only worth a look in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:51 pm
    • Lou Williams scores 15 points with four stls
      Lou Williams scored 15 points on 4-of-12 shooting (2-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-5 FTs) with two rebounds, two assists and four steals in 28 minutes off the bench on Monday.

      Advice: DeMar DeRozan went 0-for-9 from the field and logged just 26 minutes, which isn't going to happen every night, but Williams at least has a chance of holding some low-end value in standard formats. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 9:00 pm
    • Monta Ellis nets 25 points in big win at MEM
      Monta Ellis ran the offense against the Grizzlies during an impressive 103-95 win at Memphis on Monday, scoring 25 points with two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: Ellis is playing through some elbow soreness, but it didn't affect his playing time or his usage rate with a 9-of-18 from the field and five-turnover line -- good for a 29.4 usage rate. Ellis' numbers haven't fallen off since the acquisition of Rajon Rondo due to his tremendous rapport on pick-and-roll plays. He is as durable as they come and is a top-10 fantasy shooting guard. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 5:30 pm
    • Greivis Vasquez will start Monday vs. Bucks
      Greivis Vasquez will draw the start over Terrence Ross for Monday's game against the Bucks.

      Advice: Vasquez made five previous starts this season when DeMar DeRozan was injured, and averaged 12.2 points and 4.8 assists on 44 percent shooting during that span. While coach Dwane Casey didn't indicate whether or not the move was permanent, Vasquez is worth a look in most leagues as longs as he holds onto the starting spot. Rotoworld.com

    • Evan Turner flirts with a triple-double
      Evan Turner had a cheap double-double against the Clippers on Monday with 10 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

      Advice: It's been the same story for Turner since the Jeff Green trade with solid output in boards and dimes with not much else. In his last five, he's averaged 7.6 points, 6.6 boards, 6.0 assists, 0.4 steals, 0.2 blocks and 0.4 triples on 35.9 percent from the field. He's much better in points leagues than standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Avery Bradley really struggles on Monday
      Avery Bradley scored just three points on 1-of-7 from the field against the Clippers on Monday with one rebound and two turnovers in 22 minutes.

      Advice: He had just seven points on Friday and is another one of his slumps. In his last five, Bradley averaged just 10.8 points, 2.2 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.6 triples on 36.5 percent from the field. His upside is never going to be too high, so go ahead and drop him if you're sick of him. Rotoworld.com

    • Lance Stephenson makes 2-of-9 from the field
      Lance Stephenson made 2-of-9 from the field for eight points with four rebounds, nine assists and one block in 27 minutes against the Wolves on Monday.

      Advice: In today's game, Lance was 2-of-4 at the rim and didn't make his other five shots. Stephenson dropped his season field goal shooting to just 38.2 percent from the field and there is no end in sight for his sub-par shooting. He's OK to use in points leagues, but he's not a must-own player in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo Williams can't make his shots vs. Hornets
      Mo Williams made just 3-of-13 from the field for 10 points with two rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 29 minutes against the Hornets on Monday.

      Advice: The open looks were there, but he just couldn't knock them down today. Williams has at least another week of value and his owners shouldn't be too concerned about this dud. He gets another favorable matchup on Wednesday against the Mavericks. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: There is still no timetable for D-Will's return, so don't get too excited. He's expected to be reevaluated this week, so we should learn more at that point. Jack is averaging 15.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.2 steals on 46.2 percent shooting through 16 games as a starter. Rotoworld.com
