  • Update: Rudy Gay will try to play vs. Cavs
    Updating a previous item, Rudy Gay (ankle) will try to play against the Cavs on Monday. Rotoworld.com 33 minutes ago
  • Otto Porter will get more PF minutes
    Otto Porter is expected to play more power forward.

    Advice: He finally broke out of a slump on Saturday with 20 points. Porter has been flirting with top-50 value on the season and should be in that neighborhood going forward. Expect Jared Dudley to play slightly less. Rotoworld.com 42 minutes ago
  • Roy Hibbert (ankle) out on Monday night
    Roy Hibbert (anke) will not play against the Pacers on Monday night.

    Advice: It'll be his first missed game as a Laker and first since Nov. 29, 2014. With Hibbert out, Robert Sacre will probably get the start after starting the second half on Saturday. Brandon Bass and Tarik Black should also benefit. Rotoworld.com 50 minutes ago
  • Matt Dellavedova likely out through break
    Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) is out Monday and is unlikely for Wednesday.

    Advice: The Cavs will allow him to rest through the break. With Dellavedova out, Mo Williams should get minutes as Kyrie Irving's backup. Rotoworld.com 57 minutes ago
  • Kevin Love (quad) will play against the Kings
    Kevin Love (quad) will play against the Kings on Monday.

    Advice: He was probable and was never in jeopardy of missing this game after missing Saturday. HIs return will push Timofey Mozgov back to the bench while Tristan Thompson shouldn't play as much as Saturday. Start Love like you normally would in a favorable matchup. Rotoworld.com 59 minutes ago
  • Roy Hibbert (ankle) unlikely for Monday night
    Roy Hibbert (ankle) is unlikely to play on Monday against the Pacers.

    Advice: No revenge game here. With Hibbert likely out, that should mean more run for Tarik Black, Robert Sacre and Brandon Bass. Fantasy owners probably don't need to make an add here while Julius Randle could get a couple more minutes again. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:29 pm
  • Tiago Splitter getting second opinion
    Tiago Splitter (hip) is getting a second opinion on his right hip.

    Advice: He is out through the break and he could be out for multiple weeks. Splitter can be left on the wire in just about all leagues. There will be more minutes for Mike Scott and Mike Muscala. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:11 pm
  • KG out for Monday against Pelicans
    Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play against the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: He probably won't be back until next week. Gorgui Dieng is getting huge minutes and that should continue going forward. Leave Garnett on the wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:37 pm
  • Martin, Garnett and Pekovic out on Monday
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play against the Pelicans on Monday

    Advice: He is probably out through the break, but other teams may want to see Martin get out there on the court before trading for him. Martin is not worth stashing in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:35 pm
  • Festus Ezeli having left knee surgery
    Festus Ezeli (knee) is having surgery on his left knee.

    Advice: It's unknown what the procedure is, but it'll almost certainly keep him out 4-6 weeks or more. With Ezeli out, Marreese Speights should play more in the second unit. Hopefully, the Warriors get their backup big for the playoffs. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:09 pm
  • Kyle Korver says he's healthy now
    Kyle Korver said he's finally feeling healthy now.

    Advice: "I feel like things have healed, and I'm back and whole," Korver said. "There was, I felt like I missed so many shots for a while, and I think mentally, that does throw you a little bit." Korver hasn't been very good this season and is just outside of the top-150 rankings for his last 12 games. Hopefully, he can be better going forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:29 am
  • Matt Bonner out for Tuesday night
    Matt Bonner (calf) will not play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: He hurt his calf at the end of Friday's game. Bonner has dealt with calf issues before and he's likely out until after the break. There will be a few extra minutes for Boris Diaw and David West. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:26 am
  • Zaza working on his jumper
    Zaza Pachulia has been working with Holger Geschwindner on improving his shot.

    Advice: Geschwinder is close to Dirk Nowitzki and is known for calculating optimum angles of jump shots. Pachulia is only making 32.7 percent of his jumpers on the year, so he definitely can improve there. His fantasy value has really taken a tumble and he's more of a low-end asset. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:20 am
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) doubtful for Mon. night
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. Cleveland.

    Advice: McLemore has really fallen out of favor, and he's not going to play on Monday. Marco Belinelli and Darren Collison will get more run against LeBron James and Co. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:54 am
  • Rudy Gay (ankle) doubtful to play on Monday
    Rudy Gay (sprained left ankle) is doubtful to play in Monday's game vs. Cleveland.

    Advice: Gay didn't play on Sunday due to the injury, so obviously it's more than just a minor sprain. With Gay sidelined, Omri Casspi's minutes should trend up although he's still likely to (inexplicably) come off the bench behind James Anderson. From a statistical perspective, DeMarcus Cousins and Rajon Rondo will be the primary fantasy beneficiaries of Gay's absence. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:51 am
  • Devin Harris 'highly unlikely' for Tuesday
    Devin Harris (sprained left great toe) is "highly unlikely" to play on Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: It's not a surprise considering the previous Harris update had him (likely) sitting through the All-Star break. While Harris is out, J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will continue to pick up extra time. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:48 am
    Injured
  • John Henson (back) remains out on Tuesday
    John Henson (back) did not practice on Monday, and he will not play on Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: This will now be six straight games in street clothes for Henson, and there is no clear timetable for his return. It's irresponsible to stash Henson in standard formats considering he's just a blocks specialist even when healthy, but those in deeper leagues (16-plus teams) should wait until we get a clear diagnosis until making a decision. The time off during All-Star Weekend should help. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:32 am
    Injured
  • O.J. Mayo expected to return on Tuesday night
    O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) is expected to make his return on Tuesday vs. Boston.

    Advice: This confirms an earlier report, and all signs point to the veteran guard finally getting back on the floor. Following an 11-game absence, expect Mayo to be eased back into action. With Mayo and Jerryd Bayless once again in the mix, those with Michael Carter-Williams on the roster should be paying very close attention to the minutes distribution in Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:27 am
  • Kris Humphries (knee) could play Tuesday
    Kris Humphries (knee) practiced on Monday, and there is a "good chance" he plays on Tuesday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Humphries' last time on the floor was January 3. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:52 am
    Injured
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) doubtful to play Monday
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: The veteran point guard has no timetable for his return, meaning Randy Foye will continue to serve as Emmanuel Mudiay's backup. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:41 am
  • Malone hints at more minutes for Lauvergne
    Mike Malone hinted that Joffrey Lauvergne will receive more playing time moving forward.

    Advice: Lauvergne is coming off of a double-double in 29 minutes on Sunday, and Malone is looking to reward the big man. "I've been trying to play him lately because I think Joffrey's work ethic and his character are going to be big pieces moving forward," Malone said. With Nikola Jokic locked into place as the starting center, this is bad news for the out of shape Jusuf Nurkic. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:19 am
  • Roy Hibbert (ankle) questionable for Monday
    Roy Hibbert (left ankle sprain) is still questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Hibbert will want to play against his former team, so he'll do whatever he can to try and be out there. If he sits, expect Tarik Black, Brandon Bass and Robert Sacre to have a bump in minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:09 am
  • Matthew Dellavedova out again on Monday night
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. Sacramento.

    Advice: Delly's absence means Mo Williams will continue to remain in the rotation, but only as a backup to a healthy Kyrie Irving. Leave Williams on the waiver wire in your fantasy league. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:19 am
  • Kevin Love (thigh) probable to play on Monday
    Kevin Love (quad) is probable to play on Monday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Assuming Love plays, he'll wind up missing just a single game with the quad injury. His return will push Timofey Mozgov back to the bench where he belongs, while Tristan Thompson will slide back over and assume starting center responsibilities. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:17 am
  • Report: Melo had two MRIs in last three weeks
    Carmelo Anthony (sore left knee) has had two MRIs in the last three weeks, sources told Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.

    Advice: Despite both coming back clean, "the concern over his long-term health is very real," per Isola. Obviously there are a number of things going wrong in New York right now, and Melo's health woes are right at the top of the list. If the soreness in his surgically-repaired knee doesn't improve after the All-Star break, Melo will be a shutdown candidate as the Knicks fall further and further out of the playoff race. Anthony's absence would mean more minutes for Langston Galloway, Derrick Williams and Lance Thomas while Kristaps Porzingis and Arron Afflalo would each assume a larger role in the offense. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:14 am
  • Lance Thomas (concussion) could return Tues.
    Lance Thomas (concussion) could return on Tuesday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: He might, he might not. Either way, Thomas isn't a fantasy option with Carmelo Anthony (knee), Langston Galloway and Derrick Williams all available. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:54 am
  • Scott praises Hibbert's defensive activity
    Byron Scott said Roy Hibbert has "done everything he can do from us from a defensive standpoint."

    Advice: Some might argue differently, but the Lakers defense is so bad that no one man is going to make a sizable impact. Regardless, Hibbert has really struggled in his first season with the Lakers, and as his playing time has dwindled, he's embraced a mentorship role with the younger players. Hibbert is questionable for Monday's (revenge) game vs. the Pacers due to a sprained left ankle, but you can bet he'll do his best to be out there against his former team. If not, Tarik Black, Brandon Bass and Robert Sacre will earn more minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:47 am
  • Muscala earns praise from Mike Budenholzer
    Mike Muscala earned praise from Mike Budenholzer for his readiness to step into the rotation.

    Advice: "The fact that he hadn’t played much, to step in and be ready to play pretty good is a statement to how he works," Budenholzer said. "I’m pleased with how he kept himself ready. And his activity defensively, his length at the rim and his verticality at the rim has been really good. I think the pace with which (he has played), he has gotten some easy baskets in transition and beat people down the court. He’s moving the ball and playing within what we do. He’s really stepped in and done well after not playing much for a good month or so." Despite "feeling comfortable" in Tiago Splitter's (hip) absence, Muscala isn't a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:42 am
  • JaMychal Green odd man out of Grizz rotation
    JaMychal Green is the odd man out in the Memphis rotation.

    Advice: "Unless you’re going to play 11 or 12 guys, it’s very difficult [to work in Green]," Dave Joerger said. "He's certainly a valuable piece of what we're trying to do." Ryan Hollins is playing ahead of Green, an illustration of Green's fantasy value in any format. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:33 am
  • Garnett endorses Sam Mitchell, coaching staff
    Kevin Garnett recently praised interim coach Sam Mitchell and his staff for the job they've done this season.

    Advice: "I feel real good about the progression of this team since Day 1, and I think it needs to be said and needs to be understood that I’m endorsing Sam Mitchell and our coaching staff and this organization," Garnett said. KG's words carry weight in the organization, but that may not prevent a coaching change at the end of the season. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:16 am
  • Stevens called Zeller stable presence at rim
    Coach Brad Stevens called Tyler Zeller a "stable presence at the rim."

    Advice: "Tyler’s always going to run the floor really hard and he’s always going to roll to the rim really hard," Stevens said. "So you’ve got a stable presence at the rim. We were getting some good things from our shooters, so to have a guy that’s going to be at the rim opens up some opportunities for the guys on the perimeter." Over his last four games, Zeller is averaging 13.8 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.3 blocks, but he's played more than 25 minutes just once during that span. The Celtics have a ton of options in the frontcourt, making Zeller a tough player to rely on in standard formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:06 am
  • Hoiberg wants Rose to play with pace and push
    Fred Hoiberg wants Derrick Rose to play "with pace and his push" moving forward.

    Advice: With Jimmy Butler (knee) likely out through the All-Star break, Rose's usage rate figures to climb in the upward direction. Rose has been playing better over his last six games, averaging 19.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 6.7 assists and 1.0 steals on 42.9 percent shooting. He's better in DFS and points formats than standard leagues because Rose doesn't hit threes, steal the ball or block any shots. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:00 am
  • Carmelo Anthony (knee) may need more DNPs
    Carmelo Anthony (knee) has been assured that the pain in his surgically-repaired knee is "part of the recovery," but he suggested that he might sit out more games to rest his knee.

    Advice: "I can feel it when I'm out there, as far as the rhythm, mechanically shooting the ball," said Anthony. "It's not aligned for me right now." He has missed three of the Knicks' past eight games and although the All-Star break should help, owners have to prepare for occasional DNPs down the stretch. Melo's recent MRI came back negative and he said on Sunday that he intends to play in the All-Star game, which at least suggests that he's not overly concerned. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:29 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony (knee) will play in A.S. game
    Carmelo Anthony (knee) said that he will play in the All-Star game, though he admitted that his knee "[isn't] gonna heal in a week ... or even two weeks."

    Advice: He recently had a precautionary MRI which ruled out structural damage, and Derek Fisher thinks Melo will be fine "long term," but this is still a huge concern for fantasy owners. New York is five games out of the playoff picture, dropping nine of their past 10 games, and the prospect of a shutdown looms larger with each defeat. His fantasy appeal is tanking, making it hard to extract value in a trade, but owners may want to see what opposing GMs think he's worth. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:52 pm
  • Tyler Zeller scores season-high 17 pts vs SAC
    Tyler Zeller scored a season-high 17 points vs. Sacramento on Sunday, sinking 6-of-8 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs with seven rebounds, two blocks and one assist.

    Advice: Zeller did his damage in just 22 minutes and he's demanding a share of frontcourt minutes -- over his past four games he's averaging 13.8 points on 68.6 percent shooting, to go along with 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 blocks. He's playing just 20.8 minutes during that span, however, and most owners should leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:40 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony (knee) plays 35 minutes
    Carmelo Anthony (knee) finished Sunday's home loss with 21 points (7-of-19 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), six rebounds, seven assists and three turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Melo is shooting a career-worst 42.4 percent from the field and his surgically-repaired knee is a constant concern for fantasy owners, though coach Derek Fisher tried to downplay the severity. "I think he'll be fine long term," Fisher said. "I think we just have to get through this next set of days into the break and hopefully re-evaluate him from there in terms of something that's not reoccurring." This loss knocked New York five games behind the No. 8 seed Pistons, and Melo's owners can only hope that they don't fall further out of the playoff picture. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:29 pm
  • Joffrey Lauvergne double-doubles in 29 mins
    Joffrey Lauvergne double-doubled in 29 minutes on Sunday, scoring 12 points with 10 rebounds (four offensive), one assist, one block and three turnovers.

    Advice: Lauvergne earned most of his minutes as a backup center, even playing ahead of Nikola Jokic down the stretch, though he also played some PF alongside Jusuf Nurkic due to the absence of Darrell Arthur (quad). Lauvergne has fallen out of the rotation for long stretches, and he's exceeded 30 minutes once all season, so he's only worth a glance in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:27 pm
  • Kyle Korver scores 10 points with two treys
    Kyle Korver scored 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Magic, adding six rebounds, two 3-pointers, two steals, one block and two turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Korver just hasn’t been the same player during his age-34 season, and that is perhaps a combination of two offseason surgeries and the 12-year veteran entering the downward slope of his career. He’s shooting just 42.1 percent from the field, which is his worst shooting percentage since his sophomore season, and it doesn’t seem likely he’ll be able to be anything more than a late-round guy in standard leagues this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:33 pm
  • Kevin Garnett, Nikola Pekovic doubtful Monday
    Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) are doubtful to play Monday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Neither guy is a major part of the rotation, and both can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues. Gorgui Dieng will continue to earn minutes in the high-30s as Minnesota's starting power forward with both Garnett and Big Pek out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:12 pm
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) questionable for Monday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Martin has spent the past six games on the sidelines, but perhaps the Timberwolves will look to showcase him against a team that could really use a two-guard. If he plays, he'll cut into Zach LaVine's minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:09 pm
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play Sunday
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play on Sunday vs. the Knicks as expected.

    Advice: He has no timetable for a return and likely won't play until after the All-Star break. Emmanuel Mudiay is locked in for heavy minutes vs. the Knicks, while Randy Foye will back him up off the bench. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 am
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) will not play Sunday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) will not play on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful and never really had a shot at seeing the court today. Marco Belinelli will benefit the most, while James Anderson and Darren Collison will see a few more minutes as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:58 am
  • Rudy Gay (ankle) will not play Sunday
    Rudy Gay (ankle) will not play on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He rolled his ankle during Friday's game and was listed as doubtful for today's contest. With Gay on the shelf, the Kings will likely play less small ball, while Omri Casspi should benefit the most from a fantasy perspective. Gay should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:43 am
  • Tiago Splitter out through All-Star break
    Tiago Splitter (hip) will be held out until after the All-Star break.

    Advice: The Hawks know better than to rush Splitter back given his injury history, so it's a wise move. Mike Muscala and Mike Scott will continue to see more minutes off the bench, but not enough to make an impact in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:39 am
  • Lance Thomas (concussion) out Sunday
    Lance Thomas (concussion) will not play on Sunday vs. the Nuggets as expected.

    Advice: He was never expected to play and still has to pass the league's concussion protocol. His next chance to play will be on Tuesday vs. the Wizards. Langston Galloway will continue to see a few extra minutes in Thomas' absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:27 am
  • Carmelo Anthony (knee) will start on Sunday
    Carmelo Anthony (knee) will start on Sunday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: He participated in Saturday's light practice and was always expected to return to the court against his former team. Anthony is still battling soreness in his knee and clearly isn't 100 percent, so the shut-down risk will grow if the Knicks don't start winning games. They have lost four straight. Langston Galloway will return to the bench for Sunday's game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:19 am
  • Roy Hibbert (ankle) is questionable Monday
    Roy Hibbert (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He sprained his left ankle on Saturday vs. the Spurs and wasn't able to return, but x-rays were negative and he is day-to-day. Hibbert will do everything in his power to play against his former team, but Brandon Bass and Tarik Black would soak up his minutes if he ultimately decides to sit this one out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:35 am
  • Derrick Rose has season-high 10 assists
    Derrick Rose handed out a season-high 10 assists against the Wolves on Saturday during a 112-105 loss, adding 18 points, five rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: He has been horrible in back-to-back sets and made just 6-of-20 from the field tonight. Rose is going to be really busy and could be an option in DFS while Jimmy Butler (knee) is out, but he doesn't get a big bump in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:59 pm
  • Otto Porter turns it around, scores 20
    Otto Porter turned it around during a 108-104 loss to the Hornets on Saturday, scoring 20 points with eight rebounds, four steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He scored 18 points in the first half thanks to some easy transition buckets. Porter was off to a terrible start in February, averaging 9.0 points, 2.3 boards, 1.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.7 treys. There was never a doubt he'd get it going and his owners can expect him to be a top 50-type player going forward. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:34 pm
  • Roy Hibbert (ankle) will not return
    Roy Hibbert left Saturday's game vs. the Spurs with a left ankle sprain and he will not return.

    Advice: He was supposed to just get his ankle re-taped, so the injury must be a little more serious than originally thought. Hibbert hasn't been playing well lately, so he shouldn't have been owned in most leagues. Brandon Bass and Tarik Black will see an uptick in minutes if Hibbert misses more time. X-rays were negative, so Hibbert is considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:06 pm
  • KG out for Saturday vs. Bulls
    Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: He is not close to a return and is likely out through the break. Garnett can be ignored in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:38 pm
  • Martin, Pekovic and Garnett out Saturday
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (foot, ankle) will not play on Saturday against the Bulls.

    Advice: These guys are not close to a return. Martin may have played his last minutes with the Wolves as the trade deadline approaches. Zach LaVine will get close to 30 minutes tonight and is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:36 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova out again on Saturday
    Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: His hamstring issue has been a problem for two weeks and the Cavs may rest him until the break. Mo Williams will be in the rotation again while this news also helps Iman Shumpert because of no Kevin Love. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:55 pm
  • Kevin Love (quad) will not play on Saturday
    Kevin Love (quad) will not play on Saturday against the Pelicans.

    Advice: It's a quad contusion from Friday night, which he was unable to return from in the loss. With Love out, the Cavs will likely be giving more minutes to Tristan Thompson and Timofey Mozgov. Interestingly, Kyrie Irving's usage rate is 31.6 without Love and with LeBron James, so he has a nice chance tonight. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:51 pm
  • Kris Humphries out again on Saturday
    Kris Humphries (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Hornets.

    Advice: He doesn't have a timetable to return and chances are Humphries is out until the break. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:38 pm
    Injured
  • Ben McLemore doubtful for Sunday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful to play against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: He only played 12 minutes in his return from a wrist injury on Friday, so maybe his wrist injury wasn't healed all the way. Assuming Darren Collison's minor knee issue is fine, he should benefit the most along with Marco Belinelli in the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:49 pm
  • Rudy Gay (ankle) doubtful vs. Boston
    Rudy Gay (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: He rolled his ankle on Friday and did not return. The Kings will desperately need Gay to help save Karl's job, but that might not happen. If Gay doesn't play, Omri Casspi should get the start and get a chance to rebound from a rough stretch. Darren Collison and Marco Belinelli should also benefit. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:43 pm
  • Tiago Splitter (hip) ruled out for Sunday
    Tiago Splitter (hip) has been ruled out for Sunday against the Magic.

    Advice: He is likely out through the break with his troublesome hip injury. Expect more Mike Muscala and Mike Scott to back up Al Horford. Splitter can be dropped basically everywhere. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:30 pm
  • Martin, Garnett and Pekovic are all doubtful
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett and Nikola Pekovic (foot) are all doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: To be clear, none of them will play and the Wolves should've just listed them as out. Martin may not play again until the trade deadline, and by that by point he might be wearing a different uniform. He's not worth stashing in most leagues, while Zach LaVine will continue to benefit in his absence. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:34 am
  • Matt Bonner (calf) out Saturday
    Matt Bonner (calf) will not play on Saturday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: He picked up the injury during Friday's blowout win over the Mavs, but he's not a regular in the rotation even with Tim Duncan (knee) out. Leave Bonner on the wire. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:06 am
  • Fisher says Carmelo will be fine long-term
    Knicks coach Derek Fisher said that Carmelo Anthony will be fine "long-term."

    Advice: "He’s carrying a big load,’’ Fisher said. "Coming off an ankle injury, he got thrown into an intense week. It hasn’t calmed down completely since then. He’ll be fine long-term, but we just have to get through these next seven days and hopefully reevaluate from there so it’s not something that’s recurring.’’ An MRI came back clean and Anthony is expected to play on Sunday vs. Denver, but his owners should be concerned about a possible shutdown after the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:22 am
  • Derrick Rose drops 30-9-8 line in loss
    Derrick Rose scored 30 points with nine rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two turnovers in 35 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday during a 115-110 loss.

    Advice: He was very busy, making 13-of-27 from the field with his 37.1 usage rate in the second half. If Jimmy Butler (knee) misses time, we'll be seeing a ton of Rose in the offense. His upside still isn't high because of low defensive stats and treys, but he'll likely be better for DFS. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:57 pm
  • Tyler Zeller scores 16 points in 20 minutes
    Tyler Zeller scored 16 points on 8-of-10 shooting Friday, to go with four boards, one assist and three turnovers through 20 minutes of action.

    Advice: Zeller's playing time has been sporadic throughout the season, but he's been a more consistent part of the rotation over the past three averaging 12.7 points, 6.3 boards and 1.0 block in 20.0 minutes per outing. He's more of a speculative add in really deep leagues, but he could also fall out of the rotation at a moments notice, so don't cut anyone with long-term value to nab him. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:26 pm
  • Matt Bonner (calf) heads to locker room
    Matt Bonner went to the locker room with a left calf injury and did not return

    Advice: With Friday's game being a massive blowout, Bonner was finally able to get into the rotation, but he lasted just four minutes. He's not worth owning in any league, not even with Tim Duncan (knee) out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:59 pm
  • McLemore has another bad game
    Ben McLemore scored five points with two assists and one steal in 12 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He is losing playing time and it's not because of his wrist injury. Unless the Kings really start unloading players, McLemore can be ignored in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:50 pm
  • Otto Porter has brutal game again
    Otto Porter scored five points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: It hasn't been a good week for Porter. In his last five, he's averaged just 7.6 points, 2.4 boards, 0.2 blocks, 1.4 steals and 0.6 treys on 42.9 percent from the field. We saw Porter fall off a cliff earlier this year and he bounced back, so we're expecting him to do it again. Keep him on your roster in all leagues and consider him a buy-low guy if you don't have him. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:36 pm
  • Rudy Gay (left ankle) questionable Sunday
    Rudy Gay has been diagnosed with a sprained left ankle, and he will be listed as day-to-day moving forward.

    Advice: X-rays on Gay's left ankle came back negative, and it looks like he'll be questionable for Sacramento's upcoming back-to-back set Sunday vs. Boston and Monday vs. Cleveland. If he's forced into an extended absence, Omri Casspi, Willie Cauley-Stein and Darren Collison will benefit, with Casspi likely returning to the starting five. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:24 pm
  • Zaza Pachulia gets ejected on Friday
    Zaza Pachulia was ejected from Friday's game vs. the Spurs after picking up his second technical foul.

    Advice: The game was a blowout and Zaza let his frustrations get the best of him. He'll end his night with four points, two rebounds, two assists and two turnovers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:14 pm
  • Kevin Love (thigh) hopeful to play Saturday
    Kevin Love (left thigh) said that he's hopeful to play Saturday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Love was able to limp out of the arena under his own power, and said he was "okay," and owners can expect to get another update on Saturday. If Love is unable to play tomorrow, Tristan Thompson would get all the run he can handle, with Kyrie Irving doing a bit more on offense. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:10 pm
  • Kevin Love exits game with left thigh bruise
    Kevin Love was forced out of Friday's game after suffering a eft thigh bruise, and he will not return.

    Advice: Love was able to limp his way to the locker room under his own power, but he looked to be in quite a bit of pain. He'll end his night with 10 points, five boards, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers, and if he's forced into an extended absence, Tristan Thompson will be the primary beneficiary. It's safe to say that Love does not love playing against the Celtics. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:23 pm
  • Kidd expects Mayo (hamstring) to play Tuesday
    Jason Kidd said that he expects O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) to play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Mayo was able to get through a full practice on Thursday unscathed, so it sounds like he'll be ready to get back on the court Tuesday night following an 11 game absence. Mayo will likely be eased back into the rotation in Milwaukee, and with averages of just 9.1 points, 1.2 three-pointers and 1.2 steals on 37.4 percent shooting on the year, he can safely remain on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:51 pm
  • John Henson (back) out Friday vs. the Jazz
    John Henson (back) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: It'll be Henson's fifth straight game on the sidelines, which will allow Miles Plumlee to get some extra run, although that doesn't matter in almost any league. Henson is nothing more than a shot blocking specialist, and he's not really worth holding onto in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:31 pm
    Injured
  • Rudy Gay (ankle) out for game vs. Nets
    Rudy Gay (left ankle) will not return on Friday.

    Advice: He tweaked his left ankle in the first quarter and tried to play through it, but it just wasn't feeling right for him. Omri Casspi will get a bump in minutes while Willie Cauley-Stein will play more, too. Darren Collison is also playing well tonight. Gay finished with two points, one rebound and one assist. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:22 pm
  • Devin Harris likely out until All-Star break
    Devin Harris (toe) isn't likely to get back on the court until after the All-Star break.

    Advice: Friday will mark Harris' seventh straight game on the sidelines, and he still hasn't been able to practice with the team. He's currently experiencing nerve issues in his left big toe, and there's no telling when he'll be able to get back on the court. J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will continue to pick up some extra minutes in Harris' absence, and Harris belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:04 pm
    Injured
  • Rudy Gay exits Friday w/ left ankle injury
    Rudy Gay exited Friday's game after turning his left ankle and has returned.

    Advice: Gay walked off under his own power and might be able to return after having the ankle re-taped. It looks like he is fine. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:51 pm
  • Kevin Garnett (leg) doubtful Saturday vs. CHI
    Kevin Garnett (leg) is doubtful to play Saturday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Garnett isn't close to making a return, so plan on him being out tomorrow. Gorgui Dieng will continue to start, and needs to be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:44 pm
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) questionable Saturday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is officially questionable to play vs. the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: Martin has missed six straight games, he hasn't logged 30 minutes in a contest since early December, and Sam Mitchell said recently that he wasn't close to returning. The Wolves' only incentive to play him at less than 100 percent would be to showcase him for a potential trade -- he's not a desirable fantasy asset unless he lands in an ideal situation. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:44 pm
  • Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) iffy Saturday
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) won't play on Friday and he's questionable to return vs. the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: Tyronn Lue suggested prior to Friday's game that Dellavedova might not be ready to face New Orleans, which isn't a good sign. Mo Williams is picking up a handful of minutes in Delly's absence, but he's not a viable fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:25 pm
  • Festus Ezeli (knee) out until All-Star break
    Festus Ezeli (knee) has been ruled out through the All-Star break.

    Advice: Steve Kerr said the team is being "cautious" and they're bringing in doctors to examine the cartilage issue that has played Ezeli. "Sometimes these things aren't easily diagnosed from an MRI," Kerr said. "That's why we're getting more opinions." Ezeli hasn't been a fantasy asset this season, so his absence shouldn't impact any lineups. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:06 pm
  • Lance Thomas (concussion) out until Tuesday
    Lance Thomas (mild concussion) will not play until at least Tuesday as he undergoes testing, which means he'll miss games on Friday or Sunday.

    Advice: With Carmelo Anthony (knee) also on the sidelines, the Knicks are going small with Langston Galloway in the starting lineup on Friday. Derrick Williams should also play big minutes off the bench, however, and he's worth a long look as a cheap DFS play until Melo and/or Thomas return to action. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:52 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony (knee) out on Friday
    Carmelo Anthony (left knee) will not play against the Grizzlies on Friday night.

    Advice: This is his surgically repaired knee that also kept him out for two games last month. An MRI ruled out any structural damage, but this isn't the usual DNP-REST with the news of needing an MRI. Coach Derek Fisher said there is no thought of shutting him down, but Melo could miss more games. Langston Galloway and Derrick Williams are the beneficiaries here while Arron Afflalo and Kristaps Porzingis also get more shots. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:51 pm
  • Ezeli and McAdoo out for OKC showdown
    Festus Ezeli (knee) and James Michael McAdoo (toe) are out against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: The loss of Ezeli doesn't sting too badly with Andrew Bogut healthy for this game. Expect to see a lot of the NBA's best lineup when the Warriors go small, so that helps Andre Iguodala slightly. Ezeli isn't a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:47 am
  • Kevin Garnett likely out through break?
    Kevin Garnett (knee) is not close to a return.

    Advice: Coach Sam Mitchell said he likes the rotation as is. That means Gorgui Dieng should be locked in to the starting lineup. His scoring is way up, but Dieng's blocks have fallen off. He should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:33 am
  • Martin, Garnett & Pekovic not close to return
    Coach Sam Mitchell said the Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle, foot) are not close to returning.

    Advice: "I love the way we're playing right now," Mitchell said. In other words, those guys are basically out of the rotation. This is terrific news for Zach LaVine and Gorgui Dieng. Martin is on the trade block for next to nothing and will need to be dealt to have value. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:30 am
  • Kris Humphries (knee) will not play
    Kris Humphries (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: The big man is reporteldy progressing, but there is still no clear return date in sight. Leave him on the wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:14 am
    Injured
  • Devin Harris (toe) has begun shooting again
    Devin Harris (toe) visited a specialist in New York and said that he's still experiencing nerve issues in his toe.

    Advice: The guard has missed the last six games, but he was able to resume light shooting on Friday. He doesn't have any pain when he's barefoot, but the nerve issues begin when he puts his shoe on. There is no timetable set for Harris' return, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues. Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea will continue to fill the void off the bench for the Mavs. In addition to Friday's game vs. the Spurs, Harris will also not play on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:28 am
    Injured
  • Nuggets looking to deal Joffrey Lauvergne?
    The Nuggets would reportedly want a late first-round pick in exchange for Joffrey Lauvergne.

    Advice: King Joffrey is behind Nikola Jokic and Jusuf Nurkic on the depth chart, so it wouldn't be a surprise if the Nuggets tried to deal him at the deadline. Nothing is imminent at the moment, so there's no real reason to stash Lauvergne in most formats. The 24-year-old center is averaging 7.8 points and 5.2 boards in 17.6 minutes per game this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:35 am
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) has no timetable
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) still doesn't have a clear timetable to return.

    Advice: "I'm just waiting on some things to get resolved to see what's next, what's best for it and how we approach the next step," Nelson said. "I'm always going to be honest with Coach, the organization and the training staff. I just told them I was hurting." The veteran has already missed eight games because of his wrist this season, so the Nuggets won't rush him back. Emmanuel Mudiay and Randy Foye will continue to pick up the slack in his absence. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:53 am
  • Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) out Friday
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play on Friday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: This will be his second straight game on the shelf and the Cavs shouldn't be in any hurry to rush him back. Mo Williams played just 11 minutes on Wednesday as the backup point guard, so there's no real reason to consider him outside of deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:06 am
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) is probable
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is probable to play the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday, but coach George Karl decided to bring him off the bench behind Marco Belinelli and he only saw a total of 18 minutes. For now, McLemore is only on the radar in very deep leagues as he isn't very involved in the offense. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:18 am
  • Lance Thomas gets six stitches
    Lance Thomas returned on Thursday after receiving six stitches for a lip laceration.

    Advice: He's fine and he didn't need a concussion test. Thomas scored nine points with one rebound and one assist in 31 minutes. He's lost most of his fantasy value while the team is healthy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:36 pm
  • Carmelo not shooting well, passing more?
    Carmelo Anthony made 4-of-18 from the field and 10-of-14 from the line for 19 points against the Pistons during a 111-105 loss on Thursday, adding 11 rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He's not shooting the ball well at all. In his last six, he's made 32.6 percent from the field for 17.2 points per game. Only 15.7 percent of his shots have been at the rim and he's not hitting jumpers either. The good news is that his dimes and boards are up. With some concern about his knees last month, there's slightly more concern of Melo missing games. To be clear, there is no word of him being hurt right now. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:19 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) out Friday vs. Utah
    O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Mayo was able to go through a full practice with the Bucks on Thursday, and head coach Jason Kidd said that he's looking good, so at least Mayo is getting close to a return after spending half of January on the sidelines. However, O.J. is averaging just 9.1 points, 1.2 steals and 1.2 three-pointers per game on 37.4 percent shooting, so even when he does get back on the court, there's not much reason to own him in most formats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:40 pm
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) out Friday vs. Chicago
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Chicago.

    Advice: Nelson doesn't have a clear return date, and he's a pretty low-upside guy to own with Emmanuel Mudiay healthy. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:23 pm
  • Tiago Splitter (hip) ruled out for Friday
    Tiago Splitter (right hip) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Splitter said on Wednesday that his injury is "not good," so he could be looking at some extended time on the shelf. It'll be Mike Muscala and Mike Scott earning some extended run in his absence, but neither of those guys will be able to do much with Atlanta's frontcourt healthy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:06 pm
  • Devin Harris (toe) ruled out for Friday
    Devin Harris (left toe) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: It doesn't seem likely that Harris will be able to play Saturday vs. the Grizzlies either, and it'll be Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea picking up some extra run in his absence. Harris belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:49 am
    Injured
  • Ben McLemore plays 18 minutes
    Ben McLemore (wrist) returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday against the Bulls, scoring five points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: The Kings bench wasn't hurt too badly tonight and McLemore played a well-rounded game. While he was showing some improvement thanks to a season-high 26 on Thursday, there's still no reason to add him. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:47 pm
  • Zaza Pachulia double-doubles for Mavs
    Zaza Pachulia played 39 minutes and had 10 points, 15 rebounds, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's loss to the Heat.

    Advice: Pachulia might be the most surprising fantasy center of the season and is showing no signs of slowing down. He's averaging 7.8 points and 11.0 rebounds over his last five games, and racked up his 22nd double-double of the season tonight. More blocks would be nice, but not bad for a guy you likely picked up off waivers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:06 pm
  • Tyler Zeller plays 14 minutes on Wednesday
    Tyler Zeller, who went off for his best game of the season on Tuesday, played just 14 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: He still managed to put up six points, five rebounds, four assists, a steal and three blocks despite the limited minutes. He's played well in two straight games, but minutes are still a big concern and he'll need a bigger role going forward if he's going to warrant a fantasy pickup. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:00 pm
  • Otto Porter scores nine with four steals
    Otto Porter played 32 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday with nine points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and one turnover.

    Advice: The Warriors ran him all over the court, but it didn't seem to affect him much tonight. Porter's troublesome hip has been his biggest bugaboo for his fantasy value, but he's posting fourth-round value on the year and in his last 10 active games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:50 pm
  • Kyle Korver plays 19 minutes in blowout
    Kyle Korver scored five points in 19 minutes of action vs. the 76ers on Wednesday, hitting 2-of-3 shots with one 3-pointer, three assists and three turnovers.

    Advice: Korver can't seem to sustain any momentum this season and he didn't get many opportunities tonight, as the Hawks' starters earned plenty of rest in the blowout win -- Korver sat out the final 16 minutes tonight. He should get a lot more run on Friday vs. the visiting Pacers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:18 pm
  • Kevin Love cools off but still double-doubles
    Kevin Love cooled off vs. Charlotte on Wednesday with 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting, including a 2-of-7 mark from downtown.

    Advice: It wasn't a total loss, as Love added 12 rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist in 36 minutes. This snaps an eight-game streak of double-digit scoring for Love, tying his season high, and he's still been a top-30 option (9-cat) since the start of 2016. He'll look to bounce back vs. the visiting Celtics on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:09 pm
  • KG out again for Wednesday night
    Kevin Garnett will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Wolves should probably do us all a favor and rule him out to the break. Garnett can be ignored in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:11 pm
  • Martin, Garnett and Pekovic all out vs. Clips
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (foot) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The severity of Martin's injury isn't known, but he might not even be in the rotation upon his return anyway. Leave him on the wire. Zach LaVine should get 30 minutes or so and is worth holding in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:09 pm
  • McLemore off the bench, Belinelli starting
    Ben McLemore (wrist) will come off the bench against the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Advice: Marco Belinelli will stick in the starting lineup. McLemore was actually playing well before his injury and he did look good in shootaround. This move does slightly help Belinelli, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:22 pm
  • Kris Humphries (knee) will not play
    Kris Humphries (knee) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: The big man is nearing a return and went through a workout during the morning shootaround, but he still hasn't been cleared to play. His role will be limited when he returns because the Wizards are playing a lot of small ball, so he's not worth stashing in almost any league. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:20 pm
    Injured
  • Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play
    Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play against the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is going to rest his bothersome hamstring and it sounds like it's precautionary. The Cavs figure to get Mo Williams back in the rotation tonight, but he's not a reliable fantasy option unless you are hoping for garbage time against a shorthanded Hornets team. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:57 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) a game-time call
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) is a game-time decision to face the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has been fighting the issue for a week and only played 12 minutes on Monday, so perhaps this hamstring issue explains why. The Cavs don't need Dellavedova too much right now and could opt to throw Mo Williams back in the rotation. We'll have another update shortly. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:39 pm
  • Tiago Splitter not doing well with calf issue
    Tiago Splitter (calf) said his injury is "not good" on Wednesday.

    Advice: Splitter is out tonight and will likely miss more games. He is getting frustrated and was asked about it. "I am, I am a little bit," Splitter said. "At the same time, I’m working hard to get back. I want to play. It has been a little bit frustrating." Expect to see more run for Mike Muscala and Mike Scott. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:14 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) goes through shootaround
    Ben McLemore (wrist) went through shootaround on Wednesday and is still questionable.

    Advice: He did plenty of shooting and this report adds he looked good. McLemore could be closer to probable, but he's not a fantasy option tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:47 am
  • Kevin Garnett (leg) doubtful vs. LAC
    Kevin Garnett (right knee) is doubtful to play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is probably not going to play, which puts Gorgui Dieng in the starting lineup. Garnett can be ignored in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:39 am
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) questionable vs. LAC
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is questionable to play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was questionable for Tuesday and did not play. Martin has been out since Jan. 23 and he's also very likely to be traded. If he does play, Zach LaVine may play a little less. Martin is probably closer to doubtful for this one. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:34 am
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) out Wednesday vs. Utah
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: With Jameer on the sidelines Wednesday night, Emmanuel Mudiay figures to log minutes in the high-30s with Randy Foye having the opportunity for some extended run off the bench. Nelson belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:51 am
  • Devin Harris (toe) ruled out for Wednesday
    Devin Harris (toe) will not suit up for Wednesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle said that Harris will be doubtful for the next couple of games, so it doesn't sound like he'll be available for Friday's game vs. the Spurs or Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies. Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea will continue to earn some extended run in Harris' absence. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:38 am
    Injured
  • Kris Humphries (knee) misses shootaround
    Kris Humphries (knee) worked out, but did not participate during Wednesday morning's shootaround.

    Advice: With Humphries sitting out shootaround, we're going to go ahead and consider him doubtful for tonight's game given that he hasn't played since January 3. He belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:02 am
    Injured
  • Devin Harris (toe) questionable for Wednesday
    Devin Harris (sprained left big toe) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Heat.

    Advice: With both Harris and Deron Williams (hip) being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game, J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton could be in line for a healthy heaping of minutes tonight if both those guards can't give it a go. Barea will likely start if Williams is unavailable, and he'd be someone to consider in DFS. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:11 am
    Injured
  • Roy Hibbert plays 16 minutes in win
    Roy Hibbert picked up four fouls and played a total of 16 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: He looked awful and scored just two points with one board, one assist and zero blocks. That's not good for a 7'2" center. Hibbert is averaging just 6.2 points, 2.4 boards and 1.6 blocks over his last five games, so he belongs on the wire in most formats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:03 pm
  • Tyler Zeller double-doubles in win
    Tyler Zeller played 27 minutes off the bench and hit 8-of-13 shots for a season-high 16 points, 10 rebounds and a steal in Tuesday's win.

    Advice: We haven't even blurbed him since before Christmas, which was the last time he did anything of significance. Just keep an eye on him and if he suddenly starts playing well and getting minutes, strugglers Amir Johnson and Jared Sullinger will take an even bigger hit. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:51 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony double-doubles again
    Carmelo Anthony had 16 points, 14 rebounds and four assists before fouling out of Tuesday's loss to the Celtics.

    Advice: His shooting still isn't pretty, as he's hit just 17-of-48 shots over his last three games, but in an odd coincidence, he's also double-doubled in all three of those, averaging 19.7 points and 11.3 rebounds. He's making his money on the boards and at the free throw line right now, as he's hit 22-of-26 free throws over that stretch. Now let's just hope his shot starts falling and his knee stays healthy. And we'll admit that neither is guaranteed to happen. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:31 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) is questionable
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: McLemore sat out of Tuesday's practice, but said back on Monday that he expects to play. Regardless, Marco Belinelli and Darren Collison will both benefit if McLemore decides to err on the side of caution. He's not a reliable fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:56 pm
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) out for Tuesday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers as expected.

    Advice: He was listed as questionable but coach Sam Mitchell never expected him to play. K-Mart is likely going to be traded, but he isn't worth stashing in almost any format at the moment. Zach LaVine will benefit on Tuesday and from here on out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:42 pm
  • Tiago Splitter (hip) ruled out for Wednesday
    Tiago Splitter (hip) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: It'll be Splitter's second straight game on the sidelines and Mike Muscala will likely pick up the bulk of Splitter's minutes on Wednesday. Neither of these guys have any fantasy value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:53 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) doesn't practice Tuesday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) did not participate during Tuesday's light practice.

    Advice: McLemore sitting out a light practice isn't a great sign regarding his availability for Wednesday's game vs. Chicago, and if he's again forced to the sidelines tomorrow, Marco Belinelli will have another opportunity to start with Darren Collison seeing some increased opportunity for minutes off the bench. Check back for another update on Ben following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:48 pm
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) questionable for Tuesday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers, although head coach Sam Mitchell said he didn't think he would play.

    Advice: Martin should be listed as doubtful here, and it would be very surprising to see him take the court tonight. We should have official confirmation soon enough, but Zach LaVine will be the primary beneficiary with Martin likely on the sidelines Tuesday night, and he's on the radar in DFS with a favorable matchup against the Lakers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:07 pm
  • Kevin Garnett (leg) out Tuesday vs. Lakers
    Kevin Garnett (leg) will not play Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Garnett said that it's his right leg, and not specifically his right knee that has been bothering him, but he added that it's been feeling better and he expects to get back on the court "soon." His next opportunity to play will come Wednesday vs. the Clippers, so we'll be considering him questionable for that one. However, Garnett is only playing 14.7 minutes per game this season, so there's no reason to own him in any league. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:29 pm
  • Jameer Nelson listed as 'out' for Wednesday
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) is being listed as "out" for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: After returning from a six game absence, Nelson suffered a setback with his wrist, and it's looking like he's going to spend some extended time on the shelf. Emmanuel Mudiay will continue to get all the run he can handle with Nelson on the sidelines, with Randy Foye logging extended minutes off the bench. Nelson belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:24 am
  • O.J. Mayo out Tuesday against Trail Blazers
    O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) will not play against the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.

    Advice: Mayo will miss his tenth consecutive game on Tuesday and looks to be out until at least the All-Star break as he is still without a timetable. Jerryd Bayless and Rashad Vaughn will continue to see an uptick in minutes, but neither carries much fantasy value beyond deeper leagues even with Mayo out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:42 am
  • John Henson out Tuesday vs Trail Blazers
    John Henson (back) will miss Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    Advice: Henson will miss his fourth consecutive game on Tuesday and shouldn't be owned in anything by deeper fantasy leagues at this point. Miles Plumlee will see some extra run against the Blazers, but doesn't carry much fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:40 am
    Injured
  • Rudy Gay feasts vs. the Bucks with 32 points
    Rudy Gay was phenomenal in a 111-104 win over the Bucks on Monday with 32 points on 13-of-20 shooting with nine boards, six assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

    Advice: DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) sat this one out, so Gay predictably took control of the offense and helped the Kings snap a four-game losing streak. Cousins' status for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls is up in the air, so Gay could be a popular target in DFS if Boogie misses another game. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:59 pm
  • Joffrey Lauvergne (toe) plays three minutes
    Joffrey Lauvergne (toe) played just three minutes on Monday vs. the Raptors and hit both of his shots to finish with four points.

    Advice: King Joffrey isn't in the rotation right now and it's not a good sign that he played just a few minutes in a blowout win. This is Nikola Jokic's world now and Lauvergne is no longer a viable option in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:42 pm
  • Otto Porter (hip, back) plays 21 minutes
    Otto Porter (hip, back) played 21 minutes in Monday's loss to the Thunder, scoring 13 points with one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He shot 6-of-9 from the field, but he didn't record any boards, assists or blocks. Porter claims that he's 100 percent, but he played just 12 minutes in his last game and he didn't look great tonight either. The Wizards are probably just being cautious with Porter's minutes, so his owners should continue to stick with him. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:02 pm
  • Festus Ezeli (knee) out Wednesday
    Festus Ezeli (knee) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: The big man has no timetable for a return and it's not a good sign that he has been ruled out this early. Leave him on the wire and expect Marreese Speights to fill the void off the bench. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:26 pm
  • Garnett, Pekovic and Martin are doubtful
    Kevin Garnett (knee), Nikola Pekovic (sore foot) and Kevin Martin (wrist) are all considered doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: To be clear, KG isn't going to play. The 39-year-old veteran is a shut-down candidate and plays minutes in the teens when he is active, so he can be ignored in all leagues. Gorgui Dieng is a must-own player. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:45 pm
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) out Monday
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play on Monday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: He experienced a setback, so he's likely going to spend some time on the shelf. Emmanuel Mudiay is going to be looking at significant minutes, while Randy Foye and Sean Kilpatrick could play more as well. Leave Nelson on the wire. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:26 pm
  • Otto Porter (hip, back) will play Monday
    Otto Porter (hip, back) will play on Monday vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: He was limited to just 12 minutes vs. the Rockets on Saturday, but the Wizards were likely just being cautious. Porter should see minutes closer to his normal workload on Monday, but owners in DFS should probably ignore him to be safe. He can be activated in season-long leagues, though. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:44 pm
  • John Henson (back) will not play on Monday
    John Henson (back) will not play against the Kings on Monday.

    Advice: His back injury could keep him out beyond tonight. Miles Plumlee would likely get some more run behind Greg Monroe tonight, but has very little value. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 3:22 pm
    Injured
  • Tiago Splitter has been ruled out Monday
    Tiago Splitter (right hip) has been ruled out for Monday's game vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: Well, that explains why the Hawks recalled Walter Tavares from the D-League. Spliiter only plays minutes in the teens, so he isn't a fantasy asset anyways. Mike Muscala is expected to get most of Splitter's minutes. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 3:22 pm
  • Kris Humphries out on Monday, progressing
    Kris Humphries (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Humphries hasn't played in a month because he's been dealing with calcification in his knee, but the veteran big man said he was "close" to returning. When he does get back on the floor, it won't matter to fantasy GMs, who can leave him floating on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 10:32 am
    Injured
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) experiences setback
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) experienced a setback, and he's now doubtful to play on Monday vs. Toronto.

    Advice: For now, he's considered just day-to-day, but the team is deciding whether an "extended absence" is necessary. Nelson had played in each of the last two games, but he's taken a major backseat to Emmanuel Mudiay as the rookie point guard has played better and Denver emphasizes a youth movement. Now dealing with a recurring wrist injury and staring a potential shutdown in the face, Nelson's proper home in your fantasy league is on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 9:32 am
  • Lue wants Kevin Love to go back into the post
    Kevin Love said Tyronn Lue has told him that he needs to return to being a "power player."

    Advice: "He basically said that I need to go back to being more in the post, a power player, more demonstrative down there," Love said. "He just said I need to be aggressive every game and play hard. He said I'm only going to get the best out of myself if I play hard every night." The big man previously admitted that getting touches closer to the basket helps his comfort level in the flow of a game, so those with Love on the roster have to be feeling romantic about his outlook with Valentine's Day two weeks away. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 8:42 am
  • Love feels more involved w/ close touches, FT
    Kevin Love admitted that getting touches closer to the basket helps him feel more involved in the game.

    Advice: "When I get to the free-throw line and get those close touches, it helps me have continuity and feel a little bit of a flow, involved in the offense," Love said. "It makes the hoop bigger in a lot of ways just getting those easy touches." Love has eclipsed 20 points scored in three straight games, averaging 23.7 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.0 blocks and 3.7 triples on 51.0 percent shooting during that stretch. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 8:03 am
  • Devin Harris (toe) not with team on Monday
    Devin Harris (sprained left big toe) will not play on Monday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: He's not even with the team, a possible indication that he might be getting a deeper look at the injury. This is concerning because it's the same foot (not the same toe) that Harris had surgery on back in 2013, and there is currently no timetable for Harris' return. While he's out, J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton should each see an increased role. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 7:31 am
    Injured
  • Lakers tie record w/ 10th straight defeat
    The Lakers tied a franchise record with their 10th straight loss on Sunday, as Roy Hibbert went scoreless with two boards and three blocks in 21 minutes.

    Advice: L.A.'s previous 10-game skid came during the 1993-94 season and there's no relief in sight this year, as they continue to develop their neophyte core. Hibbert was 0-of-4 from the field tonight, and he shouldn't be owned if you want more than blocks with a handful of rebounds and solid FT shooting from the center position. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 9:26 pm
  • Carmelo Anthony double-doubles in loss
    Carmelo Anthony double-doubled in Sunday's loss to the Warriors, scoring 24 points with 10 boards in 36 minutes.

    Advice: He shot 8-of-18 from the field and added two assists, two blocks and three turnovers, but it was encouraging that he was able to play such heavy minutes. Anthony has admitted that he is still battling soreness in his surgically-repaired left knee, so it's not the worst idea to sell high. The Knicks will need to start winning some games to lower the shut-down risk. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:30 pm
  • Zaza Pachulia grabs 15 rebounds in 36 minutes
    Zaza Pachulia looked great in 36 minutes vs. Phoenix, grabbing 15 rebounds with nine points, two assists and one steal.

    Advice: Chandler Parsons referred to Zaza as "a walking double-double" after Friday's game, and the veteran center is one of only 10 players averaging 10+ points and 10+ rebounds this season. He's been a top-75 roto value and is no longer limited by his sore Achilles, which makes him safe to deploy in all formats. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:16 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) out Monday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: He has no timetable for a return and could miss more games. Jerryd Bayless has been getting most of Mayo's minutes, while rookie Rashad Vaughn has also been in the rotation. Leave Mayo on the wire. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:05 pm
  • John Henson (back) questionable Monday
    John Henson (back) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: The big man has missed the last two games with a sore lower back, so don't be surprised if the Bucks err on the side of caution. Greg Monroe will play heavy minutes if Henson can't play, while Miles Plumlee could see a few minutes off the bench. Henson is only worth stashing if you need blocks in a deeper league. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 7:00 pm
    Injured
  • Kyle Korver shoots 0-of-6 in lopsided defeat
    Kyle Korver missed all six of his shots on Sunday, finishing an 87-105 road loss with zero points, three rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes.

    Advice: The Hawks' offense has been awful lately and Korver is ice cold over his past two games, going a combined 2-of-15 from the field. It's been a bumpy ride for Korver this season but he continues to eke out late-round value in 9-cat leagues, thanks to his 3-point shooting (1.9 per game), FT percentage (85.0) and low turnovers (1.4). Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 6:17 pm
  • Festus Ezeli (knee) will be re-evaluated Mon
    Festus Ezeli (knee) will be re-evaluated on Monday after his MRI revealed inconclusive results.

    Advice: There is no timetable for Ezeli's return, but the Warriors should provide one after they look at him on Monday. Ezeli was only playing minutes in the teens before the injury, so there's no reason to stash him. Marreese Speights should absorb his minutes in his absence. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 3:22 pm
  • Derrick Rose scores 20 points with four dimes
    Derrick Rose scored 20 points on 10-of-17 shooting Sunday, to go with five rebounds, four assists and three turnovers through 33 minutes of action.

    Advice: Rose has actually worked his way into a late-round evaluation over the past two weeks with averages of 18.0 points, 3.2 assists and just 1.5 turnovers per game on 45.5 percent shooting from the field. He’s finally beginning to concede touches to Jimmy Butler, which is why his turnovers are down and the shooting percentages are up, so hopefully that trend continues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 3:08 pm
  • Devin Harris (toe) out Sunday vs. Phoenix
    Devin Harris (toe) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Suns, and he is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game in Atlanta.

    Advice: J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will continue to split Harris' minutes, and they could see some increased opportunity tonight with Dirk Nowitzki (rest) on the sidelines. Harris belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 2:35 pm
    Injured
  • Joffrey Lauvergne (toe) probable for Monday
    Joffrey Lauvergne (toe) is probable to play Monday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: Lauvergne picked up a DNP-CD on Saturday, and his minutes have been on a downward trajectory as of late with Nikola Jokic playing very well as the starting center. Lauvergne can be cut in most leagues at this point. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 1:56 pm
  • Devin Harris (toe) questionable for Sunday
    Devin Harris (toe) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Suns.

    Advice: If he can't play Sunday, J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will continue to pick up some extra minutes off the bench, with Barea offering the most upside. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 12:17 pm
    Injured
  • Festus Ezeli, James Michael McAdoo out Sunday
    Festus Ezeli (knee) and James Michael McAdoo will not play Sunday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: It'll be Ezeli's third straight game on the sidelines, which will free up some minutes for Marreese Speights. McAdoo hasn't played in a month, and is irrelevant even when healthy. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 11:49 am
  • Rudy Gay returned to action on Saturday January 30. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 1:36 am
  • Otto Porter (hip, back) plays just 12 minutes
    Otto Porter (hip, back) played just 12 minutes on Saturday vs. the Rockets, scoring nine points with three boards and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He played just six minutes in each half, and he was seen in the tunnel riding a stationary back in order to keep his back loose. The Wizards were probably just being cautious with him, but it's possible that these issues could potentially linger for a while. The Wizards are back in action on Monday vs. the Thunder, but they should have an update on Porter's status after Sunday's practice. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 9:43 pm
  • Rudy Gay (eye) scores 21 points in return
    Rudy Gay (eye) returned from a two-game absence on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies and scored 21 points with seven boards, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: DeMarcus Cousins left the game late with a pretty nasty ankle sprain, so Gay could take on a larger role in the offense if Boogie misses some time. His vision wasn't a problem tonight and he was in a good rhythm, shooting 6-of-12 from the field and connecting on all seven of his 3-pointers. Gay could be very busy on Monday vs. the Bucks so keep that in mind in DFS. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 8:11 pm
  • Lauvergne gets a DNP-CD
    Joffrey Lauvergne was a DNP-CD on Saturday.

    Advice: It took a while, but the cream has risen to the top and Nikola Jokic is getting some heavy burn. Lauvergne can be dropped in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 7:06 pm
  • Festus Ezeli not playing on Saturday
    Festus Ezeli (knee) will not play against the 76ers on Saturday.

    Advice: We'll see some Marreese Speights and some Kevon Looney in the second unit. With garbage time a factor, we might see a lot of Looney. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 11:22 am
  • Otto Porter (hip, back) will play Saturday
    Otto Porter is dealing with a back issue in addition to tightness in his right hip, but he will play on Saturday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: "It's more of my back," Porter said. "It's not really the hip. The back just locked up. That's all." The injuries are piling up for Porter, but he sounds determined to keep on playing and the Wizards can't really afford another injury right now. Porter is safe to plug into lineups, though. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 10:56 am
  • Kris Humphries (knee) misses practice
    Kris Humphries (knee) did not practice on Saturday.

    Advice: He was getting up some shots on the side and has been able to do a little more, but he isn't going to be ready in time for Saturday's game vs. the Rockets. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 10:02 am
    Injured
  • Otto Porter (hip) says he will play Saturday
    Otto Porter (hip) said that he will play on Saturday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: He was dealing with right hip tightness on Thursday, but he did go through the morning shootaround and it sounds like he is doing better. It's unclear if he will have any limitations, but it's safe to pencil Porter into all active lineups in season-long leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 9:58 am
  • Joffrey Lauvergne (toe) is expected to play
    Joffrey Lauvergne (toe) is expected to play on Saturday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He has missed two games in a row, but the big man went through shootaround and must be feeling a lot better. King Joffrey has only been getting minutes in the teens lately, but hopefully he doesn't take any playing time away from Kenneth Faried and Nikola Jokic. He is not on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 9:22 am
  • Zaza Pachulia double-doubles in return
    Zaza Pachulia (leg) returned on Friday against the Nets with 16 points, 12 rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes.

    Advice: The team called his injury leg soreness on Friday morning, which was a different diagnosis from the sore Achilles earlier in the week. Pachulia had surgery on his Achilles earlier in his career, so that will be something to watch. Start him for now. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 10:20 pm
  • Roy Hibbert scores 12 points with two blocks
    Roy Hibbert actually played well vs. the Clippers on Friday, tallying 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting to go with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and one turnover in 28 minutes.

    Advice: While it was nice to see Hibbert finally turn in a productive outing, he's basically been garbage over the past month with averages of 6.8 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game on 46.2 percent shooting, which has him ranking well outside the top 150 in standard leagues. There’s better shot blocking specialist out there. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 10:12 pm
  • Kevin ove scores 29 points vs. Pistons
    Kevin Love scored a game-high 29 points against the Pistons on Friday during a 114-106 win, adding six rebounds, three assists and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: A lot of day-time sports shows have a target on Love, but it's easy to forget how great he can be on offense. He's not being used too much and his rebounds are down a tad, but expect Love to flirt with top-30 value going forward. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 8:45 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) out Friday vs. the Heat
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Heat.

    Advice: He hasn't played since January 13 and belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues at this point. Jerryd Bayless and Rashad Vaughn will continue to pick up some extra run in Mayo's absence, with Bayless offering the most upside. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 4:35 pm
  • John Henson (back) won't play vs. Miami
    John Henson (back) will not play vs. Miami on Friday.

    Advice: He's dealing with a sore lower back and has now missed two straight games, leaving him questionable for Monday's road game in Sacramento. The Bucks' frontcourt will be even more short-handed since Johnny O'Bryant is doubtful tonight due to the birth of his child. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 3:27 pm
    Injured
  • Lance Thomas will move back to bench
    Lance Thomas will move back to the bench on Friday against the Suns.

    Advice: He is still not 100 percent from his knee injury last week. The Knicks brought Thanasis Antetokounmpo to the big club to help out, so maybe he gets some minutes. Thomas can be dropped in most leagues now that Carmelo Anthony (knee) is back. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 3:09 pm
  • John Henson (back) now questionable
    John Henson (back) is questionable to play against the Heat on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Jason Kidd said yesterday he is not sure on Henson, so he's slightly closer to doubtful. Miles Plumlee would back up Greg Monroe, who has a decent matchup tonight. Plumlee is not a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 11:24 am
    Injured
  • Devin Harris (toe) will not play Friday
    Devin Harris (toe) will not play on Friday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: His toe has been a lingering issue, so the Mavs would be wise to hold hm out for a while. With Harris on the shelf, J.J. Barea has been the primary beneficiary and is worth owning in deeper leagues. Raymond Felton should play more as well. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 9:08 am
    Injured
  • Zaza Pachulia (Achilles) will play Friday
    Zaza Pachulia (Achilles) said that he will play on Friday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: The big man has missed the last three games, but his Achilles must be progressing well. He was averaging 9.8 points, 11.4 boards, 2.2 assists and 1.5 steals in January before going down with the injury, but he's safe to plug back into all lineups. Salah Mejri will return to the bench and is safe to drop. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 9:06 am
  • Lakers looking to trade several veterans?
    The Lakers are exploring the trade market for Roy Hibbert, Lou Williams, Brandon Bass and Nick Young.

    Advice: The Lakers are obviously going nowhere in the West, so it makes sense to make some moves in order to open up some minutes for the younger players on the roster. Hibbert is on the last year of his deal, but moving his $15.5 million contract will not be easy. He is averaging a pathetic 8.4 points, 2.8 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.2 blocks over his last five games and is well past his prime despite being just 29 years old. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 6:58 am
  • Derrick Rose scores 16 in solid game
    Derrick Rose (back, hamstring) played 29 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday with 16 points, seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one turnover.

    Advice: He looked healthy and made some smart decisions in this easy win. Of course, this comes with a grain of salt because of the matchup against the Lakers. Rose's hamstring issue could pop up again, so his loyal fantasy owners will have to keep their eyes peeled for his status on the injury report. Rotoworld.com Jan 28, 10:38 pm
