  • Giannis Antetokounmpo out for Friday night
    Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) will not play against the Raptors on Friday.

    Advice: Well, it looks like he had some discomfort in his ankle. Antetokounmpo had an ugly ankle roll when he landed on Brandon Knight's foot on Wednesday, but he did play through it. He could miss more time and fantasy owners will want to put him on their benches. Jerryd Bayless will start, but the bigger winners in fantasy may be Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Andre Roberson will start Friday vs. the Nets
    Andre Roberson will start on Friday, sending Jeremy Lamb to the bench.

    Advice: Roberson is a defensive specialist for the Thunder, so he doesn't bring too much to the box score. He's averaging 6.0 points and 6.0 rebounds with the starting unit, and his minutes will be capped at 20 tonight, so he doesn't really belong on an active roster outside of extremely deep leagues.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo has good chance to play
    Giannis Antetokounmpo "appears to be a go unless he reports some pain after warmups," according to C.F. Gardner of the Journal-Sentinel.

    Advice: When it comes to Bucks players being a game-time decision, we'll take whatever info we can get. Larry Sanders was a game-time decision on Wednesday, but the team didn't announce he was starting until seconds before the actual tip. Antetokounmpo owners will want to check back and might want to bench him unless he's clearly the best option. Rotoworld.com

  • Evan Fournier (heel) will start on Friday
    Evan Fournier (heel) will return to the starting lineup on Friday, sending Willie Green to the bench.

    Advice: Fournier has been impressive this season, averaging 17.3 points and 2.3 three-pointers per game, however, he does have a difficult matchup tonight vs. the Hornets. Willie Green can be cut in all formats with the return of Fournier. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Nets looking to deal Karasev?
    The Nets could deal Sergey Karasev to the 76ers.

    Advice: He's not playing for the Nets and there's a decent chance he'll get playing time with the 76ers. Karasev is still not very talented, so he would only be a speculative add in a ridiculously deep league. The Nets are hoping to land a trade exception in the deal. Rotoworld.com

  • Gerald Henderson (ankle) expected to play
    Gerald Henderson (ankle) is expected to play against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: He's been awful for much of the season, but he'll get minutes because of the injuries to Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) and P.J. Hairston (ankle). Although, Gary Neal could take some minutes from him and push Lance Stephenson to the three. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 1:09 pm
  • Gary Neal cleared to play on Friday vs. ORL
    Gary Neal (concussion) has been cleared and will play against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: He could get a nice chunk of minutes tonight because the Hornets are really banged up on the wing. He'll have a chance to score in the teens, but owners in standard leagues can probably do better on a busy night. Rotoworld.com

  • Kirk Hinrich will miss Friday night in POR
    Kirk Hinrich (chest) will not play against the Blazers on Friday night.

    Advice: He suffered the injury in the fourth quarter and has been diagnosed with a chest contusion. Hinrich has missed a lot of time with bumps and bruises in his career, so Aaron Brooks makes sense as a pickup in all leagues right now. Expect E'Twaun Moore to get more run, too. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Paul George wants to play this season
    Paul George (leg) said his goal is to play this season.

    Advice: He is only doing work in the pool right now and plans to do more court work soon. George is still highly unlikely to make it back on the court for game action this year, but you have to admire his commitment to returning. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Jeff Taylor won't appeal suspension
    Despite the NBPA's willingness, Jeff Taylor will reportedly not appeal his 24-game suspension for his involvement in a domestic violence case.

    Advice: There would probably be more blowback than it's worth if he went through with the appeal, so Taylor will go ahead and just take the suspension. He doesn't figure to be a rotation player for the Hornets this season, and can be safely left on the wire in all formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Martell Webster has been cleared for contact
    Martell Webster (back) has been cleared for contact in practice.

    Advice: He's had three back surgeries in his last four years, so the Wizards won't be in a rush to get him into game action. The 27-year-old swingman also said he expects to retire at 30, so the team probably won't want to give him too many minutes upon his return. He and Otto Porter should cancel each other out in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • George Hill still not close to returning
    George Hill (knee) is still not close to returning and won't be back until December, as expected.

    Advice: Beat writer Candace Buckner adds it is "not the first of the month" either. Hill should be a big part of the offense and is a decent stash, but obviously the uncertain return date could make it tough to do so. Expect Donald Sloan to have a couple more weeks of value. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer likely to start for Wolves
    Corey Brewer is likely to start for the Wolves following the Kevin Martin (wrist) injury.

    Advice: While Brewer might be better off the bench, the Wolves are just running out of options with 80 percent of their opening night starting lineup not ready for Friday night against the Spurs. He should have some very nice short-term value, but the possibility of him being traded certainly casts some doubt on his value this year. He should be owned in standard leagues just because he has so many minutes going his way. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:16 am
  • Wayne Ellington has returned to the Lakers
    Wayne Ellington (personal) has rejoined the Lakers, but it's not clear if he will play Friday vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: Head coach Byron Scott would like to ease Ellington back into the rotation, and with Nick Young back from his injury, Ellington will have a negligible role with the Lakers. He's is averaging just 7.8 points and 3.4 rebounds through 20.5 minutes of action this season, and he can safely be left on the wire in nearly all formats. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) headed for GTD
    Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) was a full participant during Friday's shootaround, and is headed for a game-time decision vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: "At shootaround he looked all right," head coach Jason Kidd said of Giannis. "We'll see how he feels in a couple hours." Kidd isn't one to make his lineups readily available, so we likely won't know of Giannis' status until just before tip-off. That being said, things are looking positive for The Greek Freak, but if he were to sit O.J. Mayo would see some increased opportunity. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Quincy Pondexter (illness) doubtful for Fri.
    Quincy Pondexter (illness) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Courtney Lee said that Pondexter is dealing with the worst part of the illness today, so it would be a bit shocking if he were to suit up. If Pondexter sits, there will be more minutes to go around for Vince Carter and Courtney Lee. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen (illness) questionable for Friday
    Tony Allen (illness) left Friday morning's shootaround early, and remains questionable to suit up vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: If Allen is unable to go Vince Carter would likely see an increase in his minutes. Carter was able to play 27 minutes off the bench during his last outing, but was only managed seven points, three assists, and one three-pointer. However, he does have a favorable matchup today vs. the Celtics, so he may be worth the risk in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Belinelli (groin) upgraded to probable
    Marco Belinelli (groin) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Belinelli is confined to a bench role, and is averaging just 8.3 points and 1.7 three-pointers on the year, so his value is limited to deep leagues. If he plays, Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green would see a slight reduction in minutes, but Belinelli won't have a large enough impact to hurt either of their values. Rotoworld.com

    Courtney Lee (illness) went through shootaround and said that he'll play Friday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: With Tony Allen (illness), Beno Udrih (illness), and Quincy Pondexter (illness) listed as questionable for this one, Lee could see some heavy minutes tonight in a favorable matchup vs. the Celtics. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Kobe happy to have Nick Young back in action
    Kobe Bryant stated during a recent interview that he's happy to have Nick Young back in action.

    Advice: "You got a player who can get buckets and create. He does wonders," Bryant said. "Nick is a phenomenal talent. He has a pull-up jump shot and is creating mismatches. I’m very happy to have him back." Bryant also went on to say that he thinks Young will compete for Sixth Man of the Year honors, a high compliment from a man who doesn't give out many. Young is averaging 16.5 points and 2.0 three-pointers through his first two games back with the team, and while he doesn't bring much else to the stat sheet, his scoring and 3-point shot making make him worth owning in standard leagues.

  • Evan Fournier (heel) says he can play Friday
    Evan Fournier (heel) said that he thinks he'll be able to suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: This isn't official, but things are looking positive for Fournier. If he does suit up, Willie Green would head back to the bench where he would go back to being irrelevant in all fantasy leagues. Stay tuned for an official update as we draw closer to Friday's tip. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 8:10 am
  • Flip says Corey Brewer too valuable to trade
    Head coach and team president Flip Saunders stated during a recent interview that Corey Brewer is too valuable to the team to be traded.

    Advice: This seems like posturing more than anything, as the Timberwolves are currently sitting on record of 3-7. Saunders may value Brewer's hard-nosed defense, but his play isn't exactly equating to wins for the Wolves. He's averaging 10.2 points and 2.1 steals on the season over 23.5 minutes of action, so he can be viewed as a steals specialist for owners in deep leagues. However, if he is traded to a title contender (a team with a deep wing rotation), he'll likely become a non-factor in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:40 am
  • X-rays are negative on Kirk Hinrich (chest)
    X-rays were negative on Kirk Hinrich's chest and he was diagnosed with a contusion following Thursday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: He didn't play at the end of the game, but that doesn't necessarily mean his injury had anything to do with it. Hinrich finished with nine points, three rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes. If he is going to miss time, Aaron Brooks would almost become a must add as the only healthy point guard who is in the rotation. E'Twaun Moore would also get in the rotation. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: He operated out of the post quite a bit, but he had nine of his 11 makes come off an assist tonight. Butler has been the go-to option for the Bulls these days, but his usage takes a massive hit when Derrick Rose (hamstring) is on the floor. He's putting up first-round value right now. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Quincy Pondexter is questionable for Friday
    Quincy Pondexter (illness) is listed as questionable to face the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: He looks like he's a little behind schedule on the illness, so Pondexter might have a smaller chance to play. He's not a fantasy option as long as Courtney Lee and Tony Allen are out there. Rotoworld.com

    Tony Allen (illness) is questionable to face the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: The Grizzlies were missing half of their team on Wednesday, but they look like they could play on Friday because they waived their emergency guys. Allen owners will want to check back tomorrow evening. Rotoworld.com

  • Gary Neal (concussion) probable for Friday
    Gary Neal (concussion) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Neal still needs to pass the leagues' concussion protocol, but it's looking like he's very close to making a return. He's averaging 12.2 points and 1.2 three-pointers per game this season, so he's worth a look for owners seeking a 3-point specialist upon his return. Just know that he's also shooting 39.8 percent from the field. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Young receives flop warning from league
    Nick Young received a flop warning from the NBA on Thursday.

    Advice: Young drew a foul on Kyle Korver while attempting a 3-point shot, and as the video shows, Korver did not even make contact with Young. The first offense is just a warning, but the second results in a $5,000 fine, with each additional flop resulting in an increased penalty. Young has brought a much-needed scoring-punch to the Lakers' second unit, and is averaging 17.0 points and 2.0 three-pointers through his first two games. He doesn't do much aside from score, but should be able to sustain limited value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:02 pm
  • Antetokounmpo (ankle) questionable for Friday
    Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: Giannis sprained his ankle during the second overtime of Wednesday's triple OT win over the Nets, but managed to play through it. If The Greek Freak is unable to go, Khris Middleton and O.J. Mayo would be the primary beneficiaries of his absence, with Mayo offering the most upside. Stay tuned for an official update on Giannis' status as we draw closer to Friday's tip. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:24 pm
  • Marco Belinelli (groin) questionable for Fri.
    Marco Belinelli (groin) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Belinelli is averaging just 8.3 points and 1.7 three-pointers this season, so his return to the court shouldn't matter for owners in standard leagues. Deep league owners will want to check back closer to Friday's tip for an official update on his status. Rotoworld.com

    Courtney Lee (illness) is questionable to play Friday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Tony Allen, Beno Udrih, Kosta Koufos, Jon Leuer, Quincy Pondexter, and Jarnell Stokes are also being listed as questionable with the same illness, leaving the Grizzlies with six healthy bodies for Friday's game. Vince Carter would be in line for some heavy minutes if all seven players are unable to go, and he would make for a nice short-term option in standard leagues. Tayshaun Prince would also have some increased opportunity, while Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol would get all the minutes they can handle. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer had to gut through game Weds
    Corey Brewer (illness) admitted that he had to gut through Wednesday's win over the Knicks.

    Advice: Brewer wasn't certain if he would be able to suit up after missing morning shootaround, but was able to play 29 minutes despite his illness. "I was hurting so bad," Brewer said. The 28-year-old should be good-to-go for Friday's game against the Spurs, but his fantasy value is still limited to deeper leagues, despite the six steals on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:59 am
  • Andre Roberson plays seven minutes in return
    Andre Roberson returned from a foot injury on Wednesday and played seven minutes, finishing with three points, two rebounds, one assist and a 3-pointer.

    Advice: He's been out for a few weeks with the injury, but could be slotted into the starting SG job once he's fully healthy. That's where he was before the injury, but he isn't much of a fantasy prospect unless you're in a really deep league. Rotoworld.com

  • Swaggy PhD: Nick Young cures Lakers
    Nick Young helped the Lakers win their second game in a row in a 98-92 victory in Houston, scoring 16 points with four rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: The Lakers went 1-9 without Young, but they've now won both games with him. He's getting plenty of shots in the second unit and it looks like he'll be able to score in the teens. His owners shouldn't expect much else besides scoring, but give him a look if that's what your team is lacking. Rotoworld.com

  • 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. Rotoworld.com

  • Quincy Pondexter struggles in start for MEM
    Quincy Pondexter started for the flu-depleted Grizzlies on Wednesday and had just four points and one rebound on 2-of-6 shooting in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Courtney Lee, Tony Allen and a few others were out with the illness tonight, so QP drew the start. He looked like a sneaky daily play, but that plan didn't work out as planned. Rotoworld.com

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

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

    Corey Brewer played through an illness on Wednesday and looked healthy with 14 points, two rebounds, two assists and six steals in 29 minutes.

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 18 in a win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo made 7-of-11 from the field for 18 points against the Nets during a triple-overtime win on Wednesday, adding 12 rebounds, four assists, three steals and two turnovers in 48 minutes.

    Advice: The Greek Freak did roll his ankle late in this game, but he did play through it and it didn't seem to bother him. He is shooting the ball much better this season and it has a lot to do with his much improved shot selection. Excluding some foul trouble on Tuesday, Antetokounmpo's minutes are way up and he looks to be locked in to the starting lineup. His upside is too high to be left on the wire right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal debuts, scores 21 points
    Bradley Beal made his season debut and came off the bench, hitting 9-of-17 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, three rebounds, three assists and a steal in 26 minutes on Wednesday.

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

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

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

  • Gerald Henderson puts up a goose egg
    Gerald Henderson did not score in 24 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday to go with two rebounds and one assist.

  • Andre Roberson is available to play vs. DEN
    Andre Roberson (foot) is available to play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's unclear if he is going to start or if his minutes are limited. Roberson was close to playing on Tuesday, but he probably won't be fully unleashed tonight. If you want to pick him up in a deep league, it makes some sense. Although, he will lose a lot of value upon the return of Kevin Durant (foot). Rotoworld.com

    Andre Roberson (foot) has not been ruled out for Wednesday.

    Martell Webster (back surgery) said he's "right on schedule," which indicates he could return in late November.

    Advice: The last report we heard was that Webster was making minimal progress in his rehab, so this is a very encouraging update. A return in December seems more likely, as Washington won't take any chances with his health, and either way he's a marginal fantasy option with Bradley Beal (wrist) back in the lineup. Rotoworld.com

  • Bradley Beal is coming off the bench
    Bradley Beal (wrist) will come off the bench in his season debut against the Mavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: Garrett Temple will likely get his last start with Beal active tonight. Fantasy owners shouldn't have high hopes for Beal with an expected minutes limit. He obviously should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer questionable with an illness
    Corey Brewer (illness) received an IV and is questionable to play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Well, it's flu season. Brewer and Kevin Martin could both miss tonight, so Shabazz Muhammad, Glenn Robinson III, Chase Budinger and Robbie Hummel may all have to help out. Brewer should obviously be benched in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin questionable Wed. w/ illness
    Kevin Martin is questionable for Wednesday's game due to an illness.

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

  • Quincy Pondexter in line for big minutes Wed.
    Quincy Pondexter should play heavy minutes for the Grizzlies on Wednesday, as they're down to only nine healthy players.

    Advice: Five guys are out with the flu including Courtney Lee and Tony Allen, which opens up a major opportunity for Q-Pon on the wings. He's well worth considering as a fill-in option in daily leagues, but doesn't have enough long-term value to bother with anywhere else. Rotoworld.com

  • C-Lee, Tony Allen among five DNPs for Grizz
    The Grizzlies have ruled out Courtney Lee, Tony Allen, Beno Udrih, Kosta Koufos and Jon Leuer for Wednesday's game, as all of them have the flu.

    Advice: Memphis has a 10-1 record but they'll be really tested with so many rotation players out vs. the Raptors. Quincy Pondexter emerges as a viable short-term option, as does Vince Carter -- the Raptors will be honoring him in Toronto tonight, giving him a bit of extra motivation. Rotoworld.com

    Marco Belinelli (groin) will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

  • Evan Fournier out Wednesday w/ sore heel
    Evan Fournier will not play on Wednesday due to a sore left heel.

    Advice: Fournier has no history of heel injuries and coach Jacque Vaughn is hopeful that he'll only miss one game, with the Magic returning to action in a back-to-back set on Friday and Saturday. Victor Oladipo should get all the minutes he can handle in Fournier's absence, with more playing time available for guys like Luke Ridnour, Elfrid Payton, and possible Ben Gordon or Willie Green.

  • Courtney Lee (flu) had to go to the hospital
    Courtney Lee (illness) had to go to the hospital because he was so dehydrated but hopes to play on Wednesday against the Raptors.

    Advice: The Grizzlies will be under the weather tonight and it's probably doubtful to see Lee suit up tonight. Considering it's an 11-game night, his fantasy owners will want to take him out of their lineups. Tayshaun Prince is likely to start, but Quincy Pondexter is the preferred play.

    Advice: This is a nightmare for the Grizzlies, as they could be incredibly shorthanded against Toronto if they have to sit out.

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

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

  • Bradley Beal (wrist) set to play Wednesday
    Bradley Beal (wrist) is set to make his season debut against the Mavericks on Wednesday.

    Advice: This is exciting news for his owners, as Beal is expected to hit the ground running after he was able to stay in shape while rehabbing his wrist. Beal is an elite 3-point shooter, and barring a setback, he needs to be in all lineups going forward and we will let you know how he fares after the game. Meanwhile, Garrett Temple's value will take a huge hit and he should be cut in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Marco Belinelli (groin) is doubtful Wednesday
    Marco Belinelli (groin) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game.

    Advice: The Italian is only an asset in deeper leagues for his 3-pointers, so owners in standard leagues can continue to ignore him. If Belinelli can't go, Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard will continue to absorb his minutes. Rotoworld.com

    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. Rotoworld.com

    Gary Neal (concussion) is inactive for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: He is still dealing with symptoms and will still have to pass the NBA's concussion protocol once he is feeling better. Neal has been a spark off of the Hornet's bench this season and when he returns he will be worth a look for owners in need of 3-pointers. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) is out Wednesday and P.J.

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

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

    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. Rotoworld.com

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo gets into foul trouble
    Giannis Antetokounmpo picked up a few quick fouls defending Carmelo Anthony on Tuesday, which limited him to 13 points and six rebounds in just 18 minutes of action.

    Advice: He was in the starting lineup again, which is a positive development, and it was very encouraging to see him make 7-of-7 free throws -- he's at just 67.7 percent on the season, which is consistent with his rookie year. He has enough upside to be owned in 12-team leagues, but has yet to put it all together in 2014-15. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Young scores 17 efficient pts in debut
    Nick Young (thumb) made his season debut on Tuesday, scoring 17 points with two 3-pointers, five rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Swaggy P had a few typically erratic shot attempts, but he was generally under control and efficient, which isn't usually the case -- he's a 42.9 percent shooter for his career, and was at just 41.3 percent last season. Fantasy owners may find him useful for scoring and 3-point shooting, but don't expect well-rounded production. Rotoworld.com

    Andre Roberson (foot) will not return on Tuesday and he remains day-to-day.

    Advice: There's a chance that Roberson will play Wednesday, but OKC may hold him out until Friday or Saturday as a precaution. He's likely to assume the starting SG job once healthy, but he doesn't have enough fantasy upside to be worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Marco Belinelli (groin) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: If Belinelli is unable to go, Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard will continue to sop up his minutes. Belinelli is averaging 8.3 points and 1.7 three-pointers per game this year, so he can only be considered an asset in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Head coach Randy Wittman did not rule out the possibility of Bradley Beal making his season debut Wednesday vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: Wittman said that Beal will be evaluated after Wednesday morning's shootaround, so stay tuned for an official update on his status. Once Beal returns to the lineup, Garrett Temple will have almost zero fantasy value, and he can be cut in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • 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.

    Bradley Beal (wrist) practiced in full for the second consecutive day on Tuesday.

    Advice: Beal has been targeting November 21 against the Cavs for a return date and two straight days of full practice participation should keep him on track to meet that goal. The 21-year-old may take some time to get back into the swing of things, but he's a must-own player in all fantasy leagues due to his top-50 potential.

    Andre Roberson (foot) is close to returning this week, according to Thunder head coach Scott Brooks, and could play as early as Tuesday against the Jazz.

    Advice: Brooks mentioned Tuesday as a possibility, but we're more likely looking at Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday if we're staying within Brooks' timetable of this week. Roberson doesn't deserve much fantasy attention as a defensive specialist, but his return will cut into Jeremy Lamb and Anthony Morrow's already limited fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

    Nick Young (thumb) will come off the bench as he makes his 2014-15 season debut against the Hawks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Swaggy's back. While Young will likely find himself in the Lakers' starting lineup sooner or later, Lakers' head coach will ease him back into action against the Hawks on Tuesday. Fantasy owners can expect Swaggy P to serve as the Lakers' second scoring option behind Kobe Bryant, but need to be aware of the low field goal percentage and minimal peripherals that will come with his scoring.

  • Devin Harris nursing minor ankle injury
    Devin Harris (ankle) is nursing a minor ankle injury, but it wasn't deemed serious enough to have him fly back to Dallas.

    Advice: Harris left Monday's win over the Hornets after playing just 10 minutes, but was still able to travel with the team to Washington, D.C. "He’s got a little ankle thing that we’re trying to take care of," Carlisle said. "Beyond that I can’t comment because I’m not a doctor." J.J.

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

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

    Kirk Hinrich scored 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting with four 3-pointers, two rebounds, five assists and three steals in Monday's win over the Clippers.

    Gerald Henderson had his best game of the season on Monday against the Mavericks with 18 points, five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

    Corey Brewer said he received 30 calls on Sunday night because of the trade rumors.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo will start again on Tuesday night against the Knicks, according to coach Jason Kidd.

    Advice: It's unlike the Bucks to shed any light on their starting unit a day before the game, but we'll take it. Antetokounmpo played 32 minutes in the starting lineup on Sunday and he's been over 30 minutes in three of his last four games. He shouldn't be on any waiver wires despite how he'll have his struggles. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: Young made it through a full practice without any setbacks and his scoring ability is sorely needed by L.A., though they're in greater need of defense.

    Jeremy Lamb started Sunday's game but finished with only five points on 2-of-5 shooting, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Lamb was coming off a massive game with 24 points and 10 rebounds, but never got going in a defense-dominated loss vs. Houston on Sunday. Solid defensive stats somewhat compensate for Lamb's overall lack of production, but he's been held to single-digit scoring in three of the past four games and is a hit-or-miss fantasy player despite the injury problems in OKC.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo made his first start of the season vs. the Heat, finishing a road victory with 11 points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and five turnovers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Antetokounmpo has been heating up and is now averaging 14.2 points on 50.9 percent shooting in Milwaukee's past five games, though tonight's turnovers tied his career-high. He's averaging a disappointing 0.6 steals and 0.6 blocks during that span, without any 3-pointers, but fantasy owners can't complain as long as he's logging around 30 minutes per game.

    Advice: Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green will continue to see extended minutes with Belinelli sidelined, and Marco can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Giannis Antetokounmpo starting on Sunday
    Giannis Antetokounmpo will enter the starting lineup on Sunday, sending Ersan Ilyasova to the bench.

    Advice: Giannis has strung together some nice games recently, scoring 19, 14, and 18 points in his last three outings. He has a favorable matchup today as the Heat are among the bottom-tier of teams at defending the small forward position, so The Greek Freak could be in for a solid showing. Meanwhile, Ersan Ilyasova has been awful to put it nicely, and there's no certainty he'll be returning to the starting lineup anytime soon. Feel free to move on if you took a flier on Ersan, as there just isn't much upside here. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Corey Brewer being shopped by Wolves
    The Timberwolves are reportedly in active trade discussions with the Cavaliers and Rockets on veteran swingman Corey Brewer.

    Advice: Brewer is averaging just 9.8 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.7 steals this season, and a move to a crowded backcourt on either of the aforementioned teams wouldn't do him any favors. He's a guy that can help an actual basketball team much more than a fantasy squad, and he belongs on the waiver wire in all but the deepest of leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Young (thumb) targeting Tuesday vs. ATL
    Nick Young (thumb) is targeting a return for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: "The Defensive Player of the Year is here today and he’ll be here Tuesday," Young said after going through a full practice on Saturday. The Lakers plan to have Young go through shootaround on Tuesday, after which, the Lakers’ medical staff will evaluate him. If he's cleared to play, he will suit up, and he'll likely come off the bench. Young doesn't have too much upside while Kobe Bryant is healthy, so owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with the self-proclaimed MVP/Defensive Player of the Year candidate.

  • Andre Roberson (foot) is not close to return
    Andre Roberson (foot) is not close to making a return to the Thunder, and will not play on Sunday.

    Advice: The Thunder haven't released a lot of info on Roberson which doesn't bode well for his status going forward. The defensive specialist should remain on the waiver wire in almost all leagues until we get a positive report. In the meantime, Jeremy Lamb will continue to play as many minutes as he can handle and is considered a boom-or-bust option. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: He didn't make a single field goal on Friday and the law of averages helped him out a bit tonight. Of course, Martin hasn't been very efficient in his career, but he is making a pristine 95 percent of his free throws on the season. Fantasy owners can start him while he's active. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Gary Neal suffers a concussion on Saturday
    Gary Neal suffered a concussion on Saturday and will not return to the game, finishing with four points and three boards in ten minutes.

    Advice: He hit his head hard on the court right before halftime and was in visible pain, so this comes as no surprise. He will now have to rest a few days and will have to pass the league's concussion protocol before he can play again, so consider him day-to-day for now. In his absence, expect P.J. Hairston and Gerald Henderson to pick up a few extra minutes, with neither of the two being reliable enough for standard league consideration. Rotoworld.com

  • Evan Fournier still gets minutes
    Evan Fournier played 38 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday with 15 points, two assists and two 3-pointers on 5-of-13 from the field.

    Advice: Elfrid Payton has been awful and perhaps he's the big loser from Victor Oladipo coming back. Fournier is certainly going to see his output drop, but he might actually put up value worthy of ownership in standard leagues. In other words, don't drop him unless it's for someone you don't think will last on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    Gary Neal (foot) will play against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: He's been playing through his foot issue and it didn't seem to affect him much in Phoenix on Saturday.

  • Courtney Lee to come off the bench Saturday
    Courtney Lee will once again come off the bench for the Grizzlies on Saturday, while Tayshaun Prince will draw another start.

    Advice: Lee's owners shouldn't panic, as the Grizzlies may just want a spark off of the bench. Prince started on Thursday but scored just two points in 11 minutes, so owners should ignore him in almost all leagues, while Lee's owners should continue deploying him as usual. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Young goes through a full practice
    Nick Young (thumb) went through a full practice on Saturday.

    Advice: His Tuesday target date seems very realistic, but there's been no indication he'll be ready for Sunday. Young attempted a ton of shots last season, but he had a usage rate of just 15.6 in his 82 minutes next to Kobe Bryant last season -- it was 26.6 without Mamba. He's not the greatest option in standard leagues unless you have a glaring weakness in scoring. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey won't play on Sat.
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) will not play against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: He was listed as questionable earlier today, but getting ruled out before pre-game warmup isn't a good sign. Stuckey was limited before his recent injury, so he's likely going to have his minutes held in check for a week upon his return. A.J. Price will back up Donald Sloan. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 12:14 pm
  • Kirk Hinrich will get the start on Sat.
    Kirk Hinrich will start against the Pacers on Saturday.

    Advice: The Bulls have ruled Derrick Rose (hamstring) out, so Hinrich and Aaron Brooks will get the minutes at point guard. Hinrich has posted a usage rate of just 16.7 on the season while Brooks has turned in a usage of 26.8, so it's pretty obvious Brooks is the preferred play tonight. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: This news comes out of nowhere, and the Bulls are describing the injury as just soreness in his left ankle. Check back for updates prior to tip-off, but if Butler can't go, expect Kirk Hinrich, Aaron Brooks, and even Tony Snell to pick up some extra minutes. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (foot) questionable Saturday
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game.

    Advice: He has been dealing with foot issues all season, so it would be nice to see him suit up in this one. The Pacers are desperate for depth in their backcourt with C.J. Watson (ankle), and George Hill (knee) still out, so Stuckey could see a lot of minutes if he is healthy. If he can't go, expect Donald Sloan to continue to carry the load for the Pacers.

    Advice: He was ruled out fairly early in the morning on Saturday suggesting that he was nowhere close to playing. Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green will continue to pick up the slack in his absence. Owners in deep leagues can ignore Belinelli for now but once he regains his health, he could be a decent option for those in need of 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Neal wasn't even a sure thing to go tonight and he started off real slow, but eventually dug out a win for deep-league owners relying on him. In nine games and at 26.4 minutes per contest, he's returning top-125 value and has carved out a nice little role for himself. Rotoworld.com

  • Lamb posts career-best night with 24 & 10
    Jeremy Lamb scored a career-high 24 points with 10 rebounds, three assists and three steals over a whopping 45 minutes in Friday's overtime loss to the Pistons.

    Advice: Lamb buried four treys and hit 10-of-17 shots on the night, officially throwing his hat into the ring for whatever value remains out on the wing before guys start getting back. A five-game sample of his work shows averages of 34.3 minutes, 13.6 points, 1.4 threes, 6.2 boards and 1.0 steals with a 40 percent mark from the field -- good for late-round value in standard leagues. Those numbers are going to have a hard time holding as time goes on here, so use discretion on a short-term add. Rotoworld.com

  • Martin goes hitless on six shot attempts
    Kevin Martin went 0-for-6 from the field in Friday's blowout loss, finishing with three points, two rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes.

  • Giannis goes for 19 and seven vs. Magic
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 19 points on 9-of-15 shooting with seven rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes off the bench on Friday.

    Advice: Antetokounmpo has been getting solid minutes and is averaging north of 25 mpg, but entered tonight with just borderline value in 14-team leagues. The lack of peripheral stats is glaring, as he entered tonight with just 1.2 combined threes, steals and blocks per game, and tonight's output will actually lower that average. He's looking more and more like a Post-Hype All Star next season with every passing game. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Young (thumb) targeting Tuesday night
    Nick Young (thumb) said he is targeting Tuesday night against the Hawks to make his season debut.

    Advice: He's been able to go through some portions of practice and conditioning shouldn't be an issue. Young is almost certainly going to come of the bench and should see minutes in the mid 20s. He's not going to have a big upside while Kobe Bryant is around. Rotoworld.com

  • Andre Roberson (foot) out Friday vs. Detroit
    Andre Roberson (foot) will not play Friday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Jeremy Lamb has been filling in as the starting shooting guard with Roberson sidelined, but he's had two consecutive bad games. Still, the opportunity will be there for Lamb as the Thunder currently only have 10 healthy bodies on their roster, but he's not a must-own player. Anthony Morrow blew up for 28 points in his last game, and out of all the available guards in OKC, Morrow is the guy with the most upside. Rotoworld.com

    Rodney Stuckey (foot) will not play Friday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Stuckey will be joined on the sidelines by David West (ankle), George Hill (knee), and C.J. Watson (foot). Stuckey has only been able to suit up for four games this season, and there's currently no definitive timetable for his return. Donald Sloan will continue to get all the minutes he can handle, and has been playing admirably for a decimated Pacers team, averaging 13.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 4.9 assists. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen goes for a goose egg on Thurs.
    Tony Allen did not score in 24 minutes against the Kings on Thursday with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover.

    Courtney Lee came off the bench against the Kings on Thursday and hit a game-winning layup at the buzzer, finishing with 16 points, one rebound, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

    Advice: The Kings didn't defend him on an inbound play in one of the crazier plays of the season. Lee has been one of the best values of the fantasy season and is currently turning in early-round value, so there's no reason why he should be on any waiver wires. Why did he come off the bench again? Rotoworld.com

    Jimmy Butler's offensive game flourished again on Thursday against the Raptors, making 7-of-10 from the field for 21 points with nine rebounds, six assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 40 minutes.

    Advice: So the preseason matters after all? Butler was one of the most impressive players in October and it's carried over into the regular season. Butler's efficiency was his only question mark and he's been able to turn in an effective field goal percentage of at least 46 in every game this season. We're not even 10 percent into the season, but his owners should feel pretty, pretty good. Rotoworld.com

    Marco Belinelli (groin) has been ruled out for Friday night against the Lakers.

    Advice: The backup swingman played just two minutes during Tuesday's win over the Lakers and Joerger took some time to clear the air with Pondexter. "The message is, this is what I was thinking and this is what I’m thinking going forward," Joerger said. "It’s always about not letting little things become big things. When you don’t talk to guys, that’s the worst." Pondexter is stuck behind Courtney Lee on the Grizzlies' depth chart and shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters at this point. Rotoworld.com

    Corey Brewer came off the bench to hit 7-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for 18 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 24 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: Brewer had just five points in his previous game and has scored in double figures just twice this season. Flip Saunders rested Thaddeus Young and Kevin Martin for much of this one, resulting in a nice night for Brewer. But as long as he's coming off the bench, you can continue to ignore him for now.

    Kevin Martin played just 22 minutes in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Rockets, finishing with 12 points, five rebounds and a 3-pointer on 4-of-7 shooting.

    Advice: Flip Saunders rolled with the young guys tonight and the score was pretty lopsided in favor of Houston. Martin got off to a blistering start this season, but on nights when the Wolves are outmatched, it looks like Saunders may just play the young guys. Hold onto Martin, but don't be afraid to entertain offers for him if an owner comes calling. Rotoworld.com

    Evan Fournier hit 8-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers to go along with a career-high 28 points, two rebounds, two assists and four steals in Wednesday's win over the Knicks.

    Advice: Fournier had 24 points on Tuesday and has scored in double figures every game this season. Things will get a little murky for him when Victor Oladipo returns, possibly Friday, but it's possible that Fournier has played his way into a job. Elfrid Payton has been awful at point guard and while we're just speculating here, it's possible that Oladipo could play plenty of point guard, leaving more minutes for Fournier going forward. In other words, don't automatically drop him when Oladipo returns. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeremy Lamb counting Lamb-like ways
    Jeremy Lamb made 2-of-10 from the field for two points with one rebound, one assist and three fouls in 17 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: Yikes. He had a huge opportunity in front of him yet again and he looks like he squandered it. OKC is so thin that Lamb will get another chance on Friday against the Pistons. He is just too inconsistent to be counted on in standard leagues and fantasy owners shouldn't even have to think about dropping him for Anthony Morrow. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Belinelli (groin) questionable for Fri.
    Marco Belinelli (groin) was unavailable for Tuesday's game.

    Advice: Belinelli was expected to miss 7-10 days as of Thursday, and the Spurs will assuredly play it safe with their veteran SG, so there are no guarantees that he'll be active vs. the Lakers on Friday.

    Advice: Fournier only turned the ball over once in 39 minutes and he was very impressive on offense tonight, alternately raining 3-pointers and slicing through the defense as a ball-handler. His playing time and shot attempts should dip once Victor Oladipo returns from his facial fracture, but Fournier is playing well enough that he should still be a fixture in the Magic rotation.
