  • McLemore scores 14 points with two threes
    Ben McLemore scored 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in Friday's loss.

    Advice: McLemore has been playing very well considering where he was at to start the year, and at a late-round value this season he's worth owning in 12-team leagues. Things could get bumpy as he runs hot and cold in a secondary scoring role for the Kings, but the chance his game expands is a nice counter for the risk he'll present.

  • Landry double-doubles in Friday's loss
    Carl Landry double-doubled off the bench in Friday's loss, scoring 12 points on 4-of-10 shooting with 10 rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Landry has been one of the Kings' more consistent bench players, but limited minutes and a lack of versatility in the box score make him hands off in fantasy leagues.

  • Sessions back to irrelevant on Friday
    Ramon Sessions was moved back to the bench with Darren Collison (quad) back on Friday, finishing with four points, four assists and two steals in 13 minutes.

    Advice: Sessions has been terrible for the Kings this season and the only reason Ray McCallum hasn't replaced him is that Mike Malone doesn't want to lose the veteran this early.
    26 minutes ago
  • Lamb playing well in advance of silence
    Jeremy Lamb continued to play well in advance of the eventual silence, hitting 3-of-5 shots (including three treys) for 13 points, three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes.

    Advice: The Thunder would have been wise to develop Lamb last season instead of playing declining veterans, but as usual it's better late than never in OKC. He'll have a hard time accumulating fantasy value when Kevin Durant returns, but he'll be a viable option in the playoffs for the Thunder.

  • Morrow hits two threes in 24 minutes
    Anthony Morrow hit two 3-pointers and 3-of-7 shots overall, finishing with eight points, two rebounds, three assists and two steals in 24 minutes.

    Advice: While the idea of Morrow excelling in a short-handed situation was fun the larger reality is that he could function quite well next to Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Don't sleep on the late-round value averaging 11.7 points, 1.9 treys and 1.0 steals on the season.
    54 minutes ago
  • Dalembert goes for nine and seven vs. OKC
    Samuel Dalembert scored nine points on 4-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds and two blocks over 19 minutes against the Thunder on Friday.

    Advice: Dalembert has made some noise this week, averaging 8.5 points with 7.0 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.5 blocks over his past four games. Owners should view him skeptically after a season of inconsistency, but if you need a big man give him a look.
    57 minutes ago
  • Stoudemire goes for 20 and nine vs. Thunder
    Amare Stoudemire scored 20 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 7-of-8 shots with nine rebounds and no other stats in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Stoudemire's highly leveraged line isn't nearly as good as the points make it sound, but nevertheless he's still a viable low-end center in fantasy leagues.
    Today, 10:28 pm
  • Hardaway scores 11 points in 26 minutes
    Tim Hardaway Jr. hit 4-of-14 shots (1-of-7 from deep) for 11 points, two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 26 minutes off the bench on Friday.

    Advice: Hardaway doesn't do much besides score and hit threes and with Carmelo Anthony (back) out tonight he didn't win owners over. Unless something worsens with Anthony's status, owners can watch this action from the wire.
    Today, 10:26 pm
  • Jason Terry starts the second half on Friday
    Jason Terry started the second half of Friday's game against the Clippers with two points, two assists, two steals and one block in 22 minutes.

    Advice: The Rockets are going to have to get creative at point guard because there's really no way they can give Terry major minutes. He's only an option in deep leagues while Troy Daniels or Nick Johnson could get more run on Saturday too.
    Today, 9:48 pm
  • Donatas Motiejunas comes back to Earth
    Donatas Motiejunas scored six points with seven rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 26 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

    Advice: It took him two weeks to get going and he was finally coming around, but it obviously wasn't going to be smooth sailing for a guy who had major consistency issues before this recent hot streak. Motiejunas should hold some decent value in standard leagues for another week or so.
    Today, 9:45 pm
  • Augustin scores 10 points on 1-of-7 shooting
    D.J. Augustin hit just 1-of-7 shots (7-of-9 FTs) in Friday's loss, scoring 10 points with zero rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in another start for Brandon Jennings (thumb).

    Advice: Augustin now has two bad games and one good one filling in for Jennings, but should be owned for however long Jennings is out.
    Today, 9:40 pm
  • KCP scores 21 points with four threes
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored 21 points on 7-of-19 shooting (including four threes) with six rebounds and one steal over 35 minutes on Friday.

    Advice: KCP can only give you 3-pointers in fantasy leagues and as a result he is ranked outside of the top-200 in standards for the season. One scoring explosion isn't going change that dynamic.
    Today, 9:38 pm
  • Devin Harris has a decent game
    Devin Harris scored eight points with six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes on Friday night.

    Advice: He only attempted four shots from the field and couldn't get many clean looks tonight in Toronto. Harris probably has another game as the starter against the 76ers and should be better.
    Today, 9:30 pm
  • James Johnson could get more run
    James Johnson played 17 minutes against the Mavericks on Friday with two points, four rebounds, one assist and three fouls.

    Advice: He is having some fouling issues in his time back, but there is a big opportunity in front of him. Johnson could get his minutes in the mid 20s if DeMar DeRozan (groin) needs to miss time, so he's worth a look in some standard formats.
    Today, 9:19 pm
  • Greivis Vasquez scores 14 points in 25 mins
    Greivis Vasquez played down the stretch against the Mavericks on Friday, finishing with 14 points, three rebounds, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's hot with a 21-point game on Wednesday and he looks like he'll get more run with DeMar DeRozan (groin) possibly out. Vasquez started the last time DeRozan missed a game due to injury and he's been fairly effective from a per-minute standpoint. He's worth a look in standard leagues.
    Today, 9:06 pm
  • D.J. Augustin starting again on Friday
    D.J. Augustin will start at point guard again on Friday, as Brandon Jennings sits for the third straight game with a left thumb injury.

    Advice: Augustin had 19 points and a full stat line on Wednesday and should be in for more of the same tonight.
    Today, 9:26 am
  • Donatas Motiejunas getting hot, scores 21
    Donatas Motiejunas scored a career-high 21 points against the Kings on Wednesday with six rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer on 10-of-15 from the field.

    Advice: This is his third effective game in a row with an average of 13.5 points per game in his previous two. He's also seen a major bump in minutes with 35.7 per game over his last three. The Rockets won't get Terrence Jones (leg) back any time soon and Dwight Howard (knee) is out, so Motiejunas is worth a look in all standard leagues now that he seems to have figured it out.
    Wednesday, 10:29 pm
  • Ben McLemore takes 17 shots vs. Rockets
    Ben McLemore made 6-of-17 from the field for 14 points during a 102-89 loss to the Rockets on Wednesday with three rebounds, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was coming in as hot as ever with three games of at least 52.0 percent from the field with 3.0 treys per game in that span. Perhaps coach Mike Malone gave him the green light tonight, but that might not happen in the future with a line like this one. He's still not worth grabbing in standards despite the increase in output lately.
    Wednesday, 10:07 pm
  • Ramon Sessions has a bad game in start
    Ramon Sessions had just eight points with three rebounds, three assists and five turnovers in 35 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Kings apparently need Darren Collison (quad) back. Sessions is making just 34 percent from the field on the season and hasn't really been able to perform like he did after the break last season. Collision should be back soon, so Sessions has little value right now.
    Wednesday, 10:03 pm
  • Greivis Vasquez scores 21 points in 17 mins.
    Greivis Vasquez was on fire against the Hawks on Wednesday with 21 points, two rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers on 8-of-12 from the field in just 17 minutes.

    Advice: This is one of the most efficient lines of the year. For the advanced stats guys out there, Vasquez put up a 36.9 usage and had an 81.5 true shooting percentage. He was horrible before tonight and made just 33.3 percent from the field, so we'll obviously need to see it again.
    Wednesday, 9:47 pm
  • James Johnson blocks three in 20 minutes
    James Johnson (illness) played 20 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday with four points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and three blocks.

    Advice: He was reportedly very ill, but Johnson takes great pride in calling himself Wolverine. He is doing a great job on the defensive side and he had a nice Euro step on the offensive end tonight, too. Johnson is a sneaky player to own in 14-team leagues.
    Wednesday, 9:28 pm
  • Jeremy Lamb scores 21 points in 24 minutes
    Jeremy Lamb caught fire in 24 minutes of action vs. the Jazz, scoring 21 points on 7-of-8 shots including three 3-pointers, while adding four boards, two assists, three steals and one block.

    Advice: Lamb also turned the ball over three times before fouling out of the game in a frenetic performance that earned him a loud ovation from the home crowd in OKC. He was averaging 6.0 points in just 16.7 minutes in his past three games and it's futile to guess when he might explode off the bench. Most fantasy owners would be best served ignoring him, especially with Kevin Durant (foot) and Russell Westbrook (hand) on the verge of returning.
    Wednesday, 9:02 pm
  • Samuel Dalembert gets first double-double
    Samuel Dalembert double-doubled for the first time this season on Wednesday, posting 13 points and 13 rebounds in a seven-point loss in Dallas.

    Advice: He added two steals and two blocks in what was easily his best game of the season -- he hadn't cracked double digits in points or rebounds before this unforeseeable explosion. Dalembert can't play his former team every night, unfortunately, and he's likely to fade back into standard-league fantasy irrelevance vs. the Thunder on Friday.
    Wednesday, 8:23 pm
  • Devin Harris starts for Jameer Nelson (back)
    Devin Harris started at PG with Jameer Nelson (back spasms) unavailable on Wednesday, posting nine points, eight assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes vs. the visiting Knicks.

    Advice: Harris made only 2-of-10 shots but one of those was a 3-pointer, and he turned the ball over just once in a season-high 40 minutes of action. Nelson is day-to-day so it's tough to rely on Harris as more than a late-round option, and 12-team owners can ignore J.J. Barea (10 points in 15 minutes). The Mavericks get a day off before traveling for a tough road game in Toronto on Friday.
    Wednesday, 8:22 pm
  • D.J. Augustin scores 19 pts in start for DET
    D.J. Augustin made his second straight start on Wednesday, finishing a loss to the Clippers with 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, six assists and three turnovers.

    Advice: Augustin played 35 minutes in another fill-in start for Brandon Jennings, who remains day-to-day with a sprained thumb. This was easily D.J.'s best and most complete game of the season, and it's hard to recommend him as a pickup considering Jennings could return as soon as Friday's home game vs. Milwaukee.
    Wednesday, 7:49 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope bounces back Wed.
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope played a season-low 21 minutes on Tuesday, but he bounced back in Wednesday's home loss with 17 points, three 3-pointers and one steal in a team-high 41 minutes.

    Advice: KCP chipped in just one rebound and one assist, which highlights the fragility of his fantasy value -- if he's not making his shots (36.0 percent this season) he's not helping his owners. Jodie Meeks (back) is still a long way from returning, but there should be more reliable options than KCP on most waiver wires.
    Wednesday, 7:43 pm
  • James Johnson is playing on Wednesday
    James Johnson (illness) is playing on Wednesday.

    Advice: The team didn't update him and he just checked in. Johnson should have limited playing time tonight.
    Wednesday, 5:17 pm
  • Devin Harris is starting for the Mavericks
    Devin Harris will start at point guard against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He and J.J. Barea are likely going to split the point guard minutes right down the middle, but Harris' steals and treys do make him a slightly more attractive option. Barea is certainly a capable option as well. Jameer Nelson isn't expected to miss much time, so Harris doesn't gain too much value.
    Wednesday, 4:21 pm
  • James Johnson (flu) questionable for Wed
    James Johnson (flu) is questionable to face the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is under the weather and the Raptors might not need him. Johnson played four minutes in his return from an ankle injury on Monday, but the fouls were likely the issue. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him tonight.
    Wednesday, 3:17 pm
  • Ramon Sessions scores 15 pts w/ six assists
    Ramon Sessions had 15 points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, six dimes and two steals as a fill-in starter on Tuesday, taking the place of Darren Collison (quad).

    Advice: Collison is dealing with a bruised quad and is day-to-day, which leaves Sessions as a shaky fantasy option for Wednesday's road game in Houston. This was his third double-digit scoring performance of the season, and the third game in which he's made a 3-point shot.
    Tuesday, 8:45 pm
  • Caldwell-Pope plays season-low 21 minutes
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored six points with zero rebounds, two assists and two steals on Tuesday, while playing a season-low 21 minutes.

    Advice: KCP is shooting a putrid 35.7 percent on 11.8 shot attempts per game this season, part of the reason he's been a liability in typical fantasy formats. His minutes are trending down as a result, and a reduction in playing time is just one more reason to be leery of him.
    Tuesday, 8:00 pm
  • D.J. Augustin w/ 11 pts, 7 assists as starter
    D.J. Augustin started on Tuesday with Brandon Jennings (thumb) unavailable, notching 11 points, one 3-pointer, two rebounds, seven assists and one steal in a loss vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Augustin shot 4-of-11 from the field and turned the ball over five times in 37 minutes, so it was a flawed performance in his first start of the season. Jennings is questionable to return Wednesday vs. the Clippers, so owners targeting Augustin for short-term value should keep a close eye on Detroit's injury report.
    Tuesday, 7:58 pm
  • Ramon Sessions (knee) probable for Tuesday
    Ramon Sessions (knee) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: With Darren Collison (quad contusion) being listed as questionable, Sessions could be in line for a start on Tuesday. However, if both Sessions and Collison are ruled out, Ray McCallum would get all the minutes he can handle at point guard, and would be a fine plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned.
    Tuesday, 11:30 am
  • No setbacks for James Johnson
    James Johnson didn't suffer a setback in Monday's game when he played just four minutes in his return from an ankle injury.

    Advice: The Raps are just working him back into the mix slowly, so it might take him a week to get back up to speed.
    Tuesday, 11:24 am
  • 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.
    Monday, 9:37 pm
  • Stoudemire gets three blocks in loss
    Amare Stoudemire blocked three shots and had one steal to go with eight points and eight rebounds in Monday's loss.

    Advice: Stoudemire isn't known for his defensive stats so this output is a win for owners stringing the big man along in their lineup. As long as you have your expectations in check, he is a viable asset in starting lineups.
    Monday, 9:12 pm
  • James Johnson plays four minutes on Monday
    James Johnson played four minutes against the Suns with one steal and two fouls.

    Advice: He didn't take a single shot tonight and may not be 100 percent. Johnson said he was "like Wolverine" for recovering so soon from his ankle sprain, but he wasn't a superhero with fouling tonight. He should be better his next time out.
    Monday, 9:06 pm
  • Ramon Sessions is questionable for Tues.
    Ramon Sessions (knee) is questionable to face the Pelicans on Tuesday.

    Advice: He has a right knee strain, so it's a muscle issue for the backup point guard. Sessions does have a decent chance to play and he would see big minutes if Darren Collison (quad) needs to sit out. If both are out, it'll be Ray McCallum at the point.
    Monday, 4:23 pm
  • James Johnson will play on Monday night
    James Johnson (ankle) will play against the Suns on Monday night.

    Advice: He has been out since Nov. 16 with what looked like a severe ankle sprain, but Johnson is likely going to see his normal minutes. He was actually turning in mid-round value because of all the defensive stats, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. To be clear, he's not a must-own player and obviously won't be a mid-round guy on the season.
    Monday, 2:49 pm
  • Anthony Morrow ties career-high w/ 12 boards
    Anthony Morrow was OKC's best bench player on Sunday, contributing 16 points and a career-high-tying 12 rebounds in a narrow loss to the visiting Warriors.

    Advice: Morrow played 33 minutes and he's worth fantasy owners' attention until Kevin Durant returns to action. He's scored double-digit points in six of the past eight games, he's a deadly 3-point shooter, and he's recorded at least one steal in six straight games. Just be ready to cut him loose if the return of Durant and Perry Jones slashes into his playing time.
    Sunday, 7:09 pm
  • Jeremy Lamb shoots 0-of-6 vs. Warriors
    Jeremy Lamb never got going in 12 minutes off the bench on Sunday, missing all six of his field goal attempts to finish with five points on 5-of-5 free throws.

    Advice: He added one board and one assist without any defensive stats, and this disappearing act is precisely why he's so frustrating to own in fantasy leagues. His big games are scattered among many more duds, and he's only worth attention in deep leagues while guys like Andre Roberson, Anthony Morrow and Lance Thomas are healthy.
    Sunday, 7:08 pm
  • Amare Stoudemire scores 16 points
    Amare Stoudemire scored 16 points against the 76ers on Saturday with 11 boards and two turnovers in 20 minutes.

    Advice: He is likely going to see minutes in this range through the season. Stoudemire is a low-upside player to own, but the rest days will probably annoy his owners enough to drop him.
    Saturday, 10:11 pm
  • 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.
    Saturday, 8:45 pm
  • Devin Harris quiet in return for Mavs
    Devin Harris returned from his ankle injury and hit 2-of-7 shots for nine points and one assist.

    Advice: His two hits were 3-pointers, but J.J. Barea was at again tonight with seven points and two assists in just 17 minutes. And once you add Raymond Felton to the mix next week, the Mavs guards not named Monta Ellis will be players to avoid at almost any cost.
    Saturday, 8:35 pm
  • Ben McLemore scores season-high 22 points
    Ben McLemore set a new season-high on Saturday with 22 points, making 9-of-17 shots including four 3-pointers in 41 minutes of action vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: The Kings blew a few big leads this week, but they took control of tonight's game in the second half and didn't let go. McLemore is shooting a solid 44.3 percent from the field with copious 3-pointers, but his inconsistency and lack of supporting stats takes a big bite out of his 8-cat/9-cat value.
    Saturday, 8:27 pm
  • Devin Harris (leg) will play vs. Rockets
    Devin Harris (sore leg) will play vs. the Rockets on Saturday, as expected.

    Advice: Harris will return to the bench role he's played all season, averaging 8.6 points, 1.1 triples, 1.7 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.3 steals in just 23 minutes per game. Those numbers are attractive enough for use in many leagues, but he's less attractive given the strong play of J.J. Barea and the impending return of Raymond Felton from suspension.
    Saturday, 3:36 pm
  • James Johnson is out again on Saturday
    James Johnson (ankle) will not play on Saturday against the Cavs.

    Advice: He was not expected to play anyway and hasn't gone through a full practice yet. Terrence Ross and Patrick Patterson will get some extra run tonight.
    Saturday, 3:10 pm
  • Devin Harris (leg) expected to play Saturday
    Devin Harris (leg) is expected to play in Houston on Saturday.

    Advice: The Mavs' veteran guard has missed two games due to soreness in his lower right leg, but it shouldn't limit him as he resumes his backup role vs. the Rockets. J.J. Barea has been playing well in Harris' absence and Raymond Felton's return on Nov. 24 is another challenge to Harris' playing time, making him a dubious option in fantasy leagues.
    Saturday, 6:45 am
  • Morrow hits three treys in 25 minutes
    Anthony Morrow hit three triples and 4-of-11 shots overall on Friday, finishing with 11 points, two boards and one steal in 25 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Morrow missed his window and it sounds like the cavalry is coming soon, but one had to know he'd get things turned around a little bit after a short cold stretch entering tonight. Feel free to move on in 12-14 team formats, but don't be surprised if he carves out value as a 3-point shooter sometime down the road.
    Friday, 9:33 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has bad game again
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope made 1-of-7 from the field for four points and three steals in 32 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: He doesn't have much competition for minutes, but the Pistons have to think of something right now. Caldwell-Pope made just 29.4 percent from the field over his last five to go with averages of 7.8 points, 2.6 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.2 triples. We do applaud the Zen-like patience of KCP owners in 16-team leagues, but it's time to move on. Additionally, Jodie Meeks (back) is a more intriguing stash.
    Friday, 7:33 pm
  • D.J. Augustin squanders his chance
    D.J. Augustin scored 14 points with five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer on 4-of-17 from the field against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: He picked up some extra minutes because Brandon Jennings (thumb) suffered an injury, Jennings could miss time, but he didn't break anything and it's possible he is ready for Tuesday against the Bucks. Considering how that game is a few days away, there's little reason to speculatively add Augustin.
    Friday, 7:23 pm
  • James Johnson still out on Friday night
    James Johnson (ankle) will not play against the Bucks on Friday.

    Advice: He is expected to miss more games, but he has been on the practice court in a limited capacity. Terrence Ross and Patrick Patterson will get some more run tonight.
    Friday, 4:10 pm
  • Devin Harris (leg) questionable for Saturday
    Devin Harris (lower right leg soreness) is being listed as day-to-day, and he hasn’t yet been ruled out of Saturday’s game vs. Houston.

    Advice: "He's been checked out pretty extensively the last couple of days. I'll leave it at that," said Rick Carlisle regarding Harris. "We don't think it's serious." While Harris is out his minutes will be distributed amongst J.J. Barea, Jameer Nelson, and Monta Ellis. Ellis will take on a larger portion of the scoring load, and Barea could make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
    Friday, 4:09 pm
  • Jeremy Lamb moving to the bench
    Jeremy Lamb will move to the bench against the the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: Andre Roberson is back in the starting lineup and isn't expected to play more than 20 minutes, so Lamb should still get some run. He's been far too inconsistent on the season to use in most fantasy leagues.
    Friday, 3:25 pm
  • Devin Harris (leg) will not play Friday
    Devin Harris (lower right leg soreness) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: J.J. Barea, Jameer Nelson, and Monta Ellis will see their minutes increased with Harris sidelined, and Barea could make for a nice low-budget buy in daily leagues. He's coming off a 14-point, six assist outing vs. the Wizards, and has a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers.
    Friday, 9:29 am
  • Stan Van Gundy defends Caldwell-Pope
    Stan Van Gundy did not take kindly to Markieff Morris' comments following the Piston's loss to the Suns on Wednesday, and had some choice words for Morris.

    Advice: Morris said that the Suns knew Caldwell-Pope would miss his last second shot attempt to win the game because KCP "doesn't have any heart." To which Van Gundy responded: "I'm not quite sure – maybe he knows – but I'm not quite sure what Markieff Morris has accomplished in the league that gets him to the point of mouthing off... It seems to me you should at least participate in a playoff game before you do." Caldwell-Pope has struggled with consistency this year, so he's more of a 3-point specialist for owners in deeper leagues. Just know that KCP's value will take an eventual hit when Jodie Meeks returns to the floor.
    Thursday, 12:24 pm
  • James Johnson (ankle) sheds walking boot
    James Johnson (ankle) was moving well without a walking boot after the Raptors' practice on Thursday.

    Advice: The Raptors' defensive specialist and energizer is questionable for Friday's home game vs. the Bucks. It wouldn't be surprising to see him held out another game as a precaution, but we'll have a much clearer idea of his status after shootaround.
    Thursday, 10:26 am
  • Jason Terry offers support for Dwight Howard
    Jason Terry said he and his teammates support Dwight Howard as authorities investigate the center on child abuse charges.

    Advice: While he doesn't offer much fantasy production, Terry has stepped into a veteran leadership role with the Rockets and did exactly that in supporting Howard. "For him, he just has to stay focused," Terry said. "I’m sure he has a great support group around him. We’re here to support him as his family and things will turn out positive." Howard has not been charged as part of the investigation, but we'll be providing updates on the situation as soon as more information becomes available.
    Thursday, 7:02 am
  • Anthony Morrow not doing much with minutes
    Anthony Morrow played 28 minutes and hit 4-of-9 shots for 10 points, without making a 3-pointer.

    Advice: If he's not going to hit threes, he has no fantasy value. Despite getting at least 28 minutes in all but one of his games this season, Morrow hasn't really done anything outside of a 28-point game on Nov. 12. Maybe he'll get it turned around at some point, but the odds aren't in his favor with the return of Andre Roberson from a foot injury tonight.

  • Jeremy Lamb's inconsistency is consistent
    Jeremy Lamb hit just 2-of-5 shots (both 3-pointers) for eight points, two rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: If there's anything consistent about Lamb it's his inconsistency. He's scored 8, 19, 5, 24 and 5 points in each of his last five games and things could get a little dicey now. Sebastian Telfair broke out of a slump tonight, and shooting guard Andre Roberson finally returned from his injury tonight. And once Perry Jones is back from his knee injury, Lamb's productivity could fluctuate even more than it has lately.

  • Donatas Motiejunas loses playing time
    Donatas Motiejunas played 18 minutes against the Lakers on Wednesday with seven points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and four fouls.

    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.

  • Caldwell-Pope scores 15, misses game-winner
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit 6-of-13 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points and three steals in 28 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: He missed a 3-pointer that would have won the game, prompting Markieff Morris to say he knew KCP would miss the shot, because he has "no heart." Ouch. KCP scored just two points on Nov. 15, but now has 10 and 15 with five 3-pointers over his last two games. The minutes are there, but inconsistency has been a problem for Caldwell-Pope thus far.

  • Greivis Vasquez returned to action on Wednesday November 19.

  • Amare Stoudemire plays in both B2B games
    Amare Stoudemire played in the second night of a back-to-back on Wednesday, finishing with 19 points, three rebounds and three turnovers in 20 minutes.

    Advice: He played 24 minutes against the Bucks on Tuesday and scored 14. Stoudemire is going to sit out on occasion, so his fantasy owners will need to keep their eyes peeled. He's also sat out in a non-back-to-back game.
    Wednesday, 10:45 pm
  • Samuel Dalembert plays eight minutes
    Samuel Dalembert played eight minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday with three points, one rebound and one block.

    Advice: This is his third game in single-digit minutes on the season, so just remember that when Dalembert turns in a random big game. He's not going to be worth owning in most leagues unless the Knicks get hammered with injuries.
    Wednesday, 10:39 pm
  • Devin Harris (ankle) is out on Wednesday
    Devin Harris (ankle) won't suit up for Wednesday's game against the Wizards, but is targeting a return on Friday.

    Advice: We saw this one coming from a mile away, as Harris has been injury-prone throughout his career. He should be fine with a little rest, and he is hopeful he will play on Friday. J.J. Barea figures to be the main beneficiary of Harris' absence, while Jameer Nelson will likely see a slight uptick in minutes with the first unit. However, neither player is reliable enough for standard leagues in the long term.

  • Ben McLemore held to single-digit pts again
    Ben McLemore was held to single-digit points for the second straight game on Tuesday, going 1-of-6 from the field for two points with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Playing time hasn't been a big issue for McLemore this season, and thus far he's held off rookie Nik Stauskas for the SG job, but his scoring has plummeted after five straight double-digit games from Nov. 5-13. He contributes very few rebounds (3.0), assists (1.0), steals (0.5) or blocks (0.0), so standard-league owners should look elsewhere for points and triples.
    Tuesday, 9:39 pm
  • Anthony Morrow quiet in 34 minutes Tuesday
    Anthony Morrow logged 34 minutes off the Thunder bench on Tuesday, but he scored only eight points with five rebounds, two assists and two steals.

    Advice: Morrow hit a 3-pointer and he doesn't usually contribute many boards or defensive stats, which take the sting out of his low-scoring game. He blew up for 28 points and four triples last Wednesday but is just 7-of-31 from the field since then (22.6 percent), so fantasy owners should deploy him with caution.
    Tuesday, 8:38 pm
  • Jeremy Lamb has well-rounded line vs. Utah
    Jeremy Lamb posted a nice all-around line in 36 minutes on Tuesday, scoring 19 points with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Lamb has been up-and-down since returning from his back injury on Nov. 7, but he has explosive potential with the Thunder desperately short-handed. He made only five of his 15 shot attempts tonight, but made up for it with a 6-of-6 mark at the FT line.
    Tuesday, 8:36 pm
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. pours in 24 points off bench
    Tim Hardaway Jr. came off the Knicks' bench for 24 points (9-of-13 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), three 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's home defeat.

    Advice: He had a quick trigger tonight and wound up with his highest scoring total of the young season, despite playing under 30 minutes off the bench. It's nice to see him get into a rhythm, but it'll be hard for him to sustain reliable value while he's stuck playing limited minutes behind J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert.
    Tuesday, 7:43 pm
  • Devin Harris questionable for Wednesday
    Devin Harris (ankle) has been listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: Harris was able to travel with the team to Washington, D.C., so it would seem that he escaped serious injury after going down during Monday's win over the Hornets. We'll update his status after Wednesday's shootaround, but J.J. Barea would be in line for some extra minutes off the bench if Harris is unable to play.
    Tuesday, 10:57 am
  • 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.
