    • Mattthew Dellavedova likely to start
      Matthew Dellavedova is expected to start against the Pacers on Friday.

      Advice: This isn't really a noteworthy move for fantasy. In his 148 minutes next to LeBron James and Kevin Love with Kyrie on the bench, Dellavedova holds an 8.0 usage rate to go with an effective field goal percentage of 23.7. He's only an option in deep leagues tonight and averages about 0.3 DFS points per minute in most formats in the aforementioned situations. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyrie Irving (shoulder) ruled out on Friday
      Kyrie Irving (shoulder) will not play on Friday against the Pacers.

      Advice: He suffered the left shoulder strain on Friday, but he was back on the bench following the injury. Irving had an MRI and it would appear he's day-to-day because the team did not rule him out for Sunday against the Rockets. Matthew Dellavedova logged all of the backup point guard minutes on Thursday night and is likely going to start. Rotoworld.com

    • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) out again for Friday
      O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play against the Lakers on Friday.

      Advice: The Bucks called Mayo sitting on Wednesday as "rest" but it certainly raised a red flag because they weren't on the front or back end of a back-to-back set. Mayo tweaked his hamstring on Feb. 20, but he did play 31.0 minutes per game in his two following outings. With Mayo out, Jerryd Bayless will log more minutes at shooting guard which may allow Tyler Ennis to get minutes close to 20. Khris Middleton should also have a higher usage rate, which helped him get to 19 points on Wednesday. Mayo is a tough player to own now that he's not healthy. Rotoworld.com

    • Amare Stoudemire (rest) practices on Friday
      Amare Stoudemire (rest) was a full participant during Friday's practice.

      Advice: Stoudemire will likely be able to give it a go for Saturday's game vs. the Nets, but his minutes will be limited, making him a risky option in most leagues. Through two games with the Mavs this season, STAT has compiled averages of 10.0 points and 3.0 rebounds, and as a bench player for the Mavs he won't be worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Chandler Parsons (ankle) out Saturday vs. BKN
      Chandler Parsons (ankle) did not practice on Friday, and he has been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. the Nets.

      Advice: Parsons has shed his walking boot, but he remains without an official timetable to return. We'll be considering him questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans, and with him sidelined, Richard Jefferson and Al-Farouq Aminu will continue to split his minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Beasley to come off the bench Friday
      Michael Beasley will come off the bench for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

      Advice: Beasley is in an ideal situation to produce, playing for a Miami team that has been devastated by injuries. He knows head coach Erik Spoelstra's system, and he has limited competition for minutes with Udonis Haslem as the only healthy power forward on the roster. However, Beasley has failed to produce in ideal situations before, so owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach here. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Garnett (rest) questionable for Friday
      Kevin Garnett is uncertain whether he will be able to give it a go for Friday's matchup with the Bulls.

      Advice: The Timberwolves play at Chicago on Friday, and then return to Minnesota for a home game vs. Memphis on Saturday. When Garnett was asked directly about his status for tonight's game he responded: "We'll see, we'll see. If not tonight, definitely tomorrow." We'll consider him on the doubtful side of questionable for tonight's game. If he does sit, Gorgui Dieng will have an opportunity to start. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Rose's (knee) timetable set at 4-6 weeks
      Derrick Rose underwent a meniscectomy on Friday morning, and he is expected to make a full recovery in 4-6 weeks.

      Advice: Rose is full-weight bearing after undergoing the procedure, and he was able to walk out of the hospital. Rookie Doug McDermott had a similar procedure earlier in the year, and he was able to return to practice in four weeks, so things appear to be moving in a positive direction. If Rose is able to return at the four-week mark, he'll return for the final nine games of the season, however, he sits until the six-week mark he'll only be returning for the final three games of the season. Given Rose's tendency to be on the long-end of his recovery timetable, and the fact his minutes will likely be limited upon his return, owners in all re-draft leagues should probably just drop him at this point. Aaron Brooks will be the starting point guard and primary beneficiary with Rose sidelined. Rotoworld.com

    • Aaron Gordon (ankle) ruled out for Friday
      Aaron Gordon (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

      Advice: With Gordon sidelined, Channing Frye will see a healthy heaping of minutes. However, with season averages of just 7.6 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.9 three-pointers per game, Frye can't be viewed as anything more than a 3-point specialist in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Bismack Biyombo (knee) nearing a return
      Bismack Biyombo (knee) participated in Thursday's practice, and he is targeting a return for either Friday's game vs. Boston or Sunday's game vs. Orlando.

      Advice: Biyombo isn't a major piece of the Hornets' rotation, and with season averages of 3.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game as a reserve he can't be viewed as anything more than a shot-blocking specialist in very deep leagues. However, when Biyombo is able to return to the lineup, he'll likely take away most of Jason Maxiell's minutes, rendering him a negligible option in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Not Untucked: P.J. Tucker has solid game
      P.J Tucker picked up big minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with 12 points, four rebounds, two assists, one block and one turnover.

      Advice: He played 35 minutes and coach Jeff Hornacek put him in the unenviable position of guarding Russ Westbrook down the stretch. Tucker is racking up stats right now and he's getting consistent minutes, so he should be viewed as a must-own player in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Markieff Morris scores 29 with 11 boards
      Markieff Morris scored 29 points with 11 boards in Thursday's overtime win over the Thunder, adding three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 44 minutes.

      Advice: He was really struggling prior to tonight, averaging just 6.3 points over his last three games, so his owners will be thrilled that he broke out of his slump. The best part of all of this is that he struggled in the mid-range again tonight, making 4-of-13 on those shots. Morris was money everywhere else, though. Expect some bumps in the road, but look for Morris to build on this momentum on Saturday against Tim Duncan and the Spurs. Rotoworld.com

    • Enes Kanter scores 18 with six boards in loss
      Enes Kanter scored 18 points with six boards, one assist and one block in 37 minutes on Thursday against the Suns.

      Advice: Kanter has always been able to score and rebound at a reasonable rate, but his defensive stats are still not there. He has totaled just one block and one steal in four games for the Thunder, and he is still having trouble finding the open man, averaging just 1.5 assists over that span. Steven Adams (hand) will likely return soon, but Kanter should still be locked in as the starting center for the rest of the season to the delight of his owners. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight scores 15 points in win
      Brandon Knight played 48 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with 15 points, five rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: While he did get a front-row seat of the Russ Westbrook Show, Knight looked good. He had a lot of ISO plays and he ran the offense a ton tonight, especially in transition. It's pretty clear coach Jeff Hornacek is going to stagger Knight's minutes with Eric Bledsoe, which should elevate his usage rate. Considering how many treys he's taking, his fantasy value shouldn't fall off too much. He should be viewed as a mid-round guy. Rotoworld.com

    • Almost Bestbrook: Russell trip-dubs in loss
      Russell Westbrook notched his second straight triple-double in Thursday's 117-113 overtime loss to the Suns, finishing with 39 points, 14 boards, 11 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes, though he did suffer a minor ankle tweak in the closing moments of the game.

      Advice: That's good for a 48.3 usage rate. He was seen walking around the locker room with no visible limp after the game, so it doesn't look like he is in any danger of missing any action. Westbrook was able to find a tremendous amount of defensive rebounds and he carried the OKC offense tonight, especially in transition. He and teammate Serge Ibaka were No. 1 and 2 in fantasy value since the break. In addition to that, Westbrook is on pace with Oscar Robertson to become the second player in NBA history to average 30 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds in a month. If you're under 40 years old, you've never seen this before. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyrie Irving (shoulder) doubtful for Friday
      Kyrie Irving (shoulder) will not travel to Indiana on Thursday night is now doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

      Advice: Irving is set to undergo an MRI on Friday morning, so his owners will have to agonizingly wait for an update. The fact that he is not going to travel with the team should all but rule him out for Friday, but crazier things have happened. Iman Shumpert and Matthew Dellavedova will have their hands full in the backcourt if Irving sits, while LeBron James and Kevin Love will carry the load on offense for the Cavs. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyrie Irving says his shoulder feels sore
      Kyrie Irving said that his shoulder was sore after Thursday's game vs. the Warriors, and he will see how he feels in the morning before deciding on his status for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

      Advice: We will keep him on the injury report unless we get a positive report after shootaround on Friday, but his owners should have backup plan ready just in case. Irving was able to play through the pain against the Warriors and managed to score 24 points, but there's no telling how his shoulder will respond once the adrenaline from the thrilling matchup with Stephen Curry wears off. If Irving sits Friday, expect Iman Shumpert and Matthew Dellavedova to see an uptick in minutes for Cleveland, while LeBron James and Kevin Love would have even more responsibility on offense.

      Kyrie Irving played through a shoulder injury in Thursday's win over the Warriors, finishing with 24 points, three rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

      Advice: He was simply battling soreness in his shoulder after a minor bump so his owners shouldn't be too concerned. Irving shot just 6-of-17 from the field and 2-of-8 from 3-point range, but his owners can cut him some slack considering he had to go up against the man they call Stephen Curry. Rotoworld.com

    • Bulls hopeful Rose will return this season
      Bulls Vice President John Paxson said on Thursday that he is hopeful that Derrick Rose (knee) will be able to return this season.

      Advice: Rose is set to undergo surgery on Friday morning at which point a firm timetable will be established, but the Bulls are hoping that this latest injury is just a minor setback. Owners might as well stand pat for now until we get more details after the surgery, but there is still a good chance that Rose misses significant time. Aaron Brooks will continue to start for the Bulls at PG in the meantime and is worth a look in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Derrick Rose set to undergo surgery Friday
      Derrick Rose is scheduled to undergo surgery on his right knee Friday morning, and a timeline for his return will be announced following his procedure.

      Advice: Rose will undergo a meniscectomy, which is a procedure that will remove all or part of his torn meniscus, but it's worth noting that many within the Bulls' organization remain cautiously optimistic that Rose will be able to return at some point this season. We'll be following this story closely, but given the amount of time Rose has spent sidelined over the past three seasons, we're not as optimistic as the Bulls, and Rose can probably be dropped in standard leagues at this point.

    • Michael Beasley will be active Friday vs. NO
      Michael Beasley will be active and available to play for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

      Advice: Beasley hasn't been able to produce enough statistically to be considered a viable option in standard leagues for the past three seasons, and while he will have some opportunity playing for a Miami team that has been devastated by injuries, he has a long history of failing to reach his potential. Owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach here. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Beasley to Miami Heat 3.0
      The Miami Heat have signed F Michael Beasley to a 10-day contract.

      Advice: While it's unlikely that Beasley will provide much fantasy value, this is a situation worth monitoring. He should be in shape as he's been playing in China and there are plenty of minutes available in the injury-depleted Heat frontcourt. There's a good chance that Beasley flames out in his third stint with the Heat, but owners in deep leagues may want to take a flier on the former No. 2 overall pick if they have an open roster spot.

    • Aaron Gordon questionable for Fri vs ATL
      Aaron Gordon (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Hawks.

      Advice: Gordon left Wednesday's game with a sprained right ankle he suffered during a nasty fall and was unable to return. While the rookie can be left on the wire after averaging 3.6 points and 1.4 boards in 10.0 minutes over his last five games, Channing Frye would be in line for a bump in playing time if Gordon sits on Friday.

    • Brandon Knight scores team-high 19
      Brandon Knight scored a team-high 19 points against the Nuggets during a 110-96 win on Wednesday with three rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He's established a very nice rapport with Eric Bledsoe. In fact, Knight has passed the ball to Bledsoe more than any other player and he's also received more passes from him than anyone else, too. He's taken 19 attempts from deep in his last two games, which is a good thing based on his 40.4 percent from that range this season. Knight's value won't drop too much in standard leagues thanks to the added output in treys. Rotoworld.com

      P.J. Tucker's hot streak continued on Wednesday with 12 points, eight rebounds, one assist, one block and five steals in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He has been logging a lot of playing time at power forward now and his minutes are among the safest on the team. In his last five, Tucker averaged 14.6 points, 8.4 boards, 1.0 assists, 2.2 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.5 treys on 47.3 percent from the field and 81.3 percent from the line. He's worth owning in standard leagues right now. Rotoworld.com

      Markieff Morris' shooting slump continued on Wednesday against the Nuggets, making 1-of-5 from the field for five points with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and two turnovers in 22 minutes.

      Advice: He was one of the best mid-range power forwards in the NBA earlier in the season, but that's been his undoing lately. In his last seven, Morris made just 21.6 percent of his mid-range shots, which account for 50.5 percent of his shot total. That explains why he's only averaged 12.3 points, 5.6 boards, 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.6 treys on 33.7 percent from the field in that span. Besides the shooting issue, it's not that bad. He should get it turned around soon because all players go through shooting slumps. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He did add two assists, a steal and two blocks on 2-of-7 shooting, but the only thing the likes of KG, Adreian Payne and Nikola Pekovic seem to be doing is ruining the fantasy value of Gorgui Dieng. Then again, the Wolves blew out the Wizards, so maybe Flip Saunders knows something we don't. Rotoworld.com

    • Derrick Rose (knee) surgery may happen by Fri
      Derrick Rose is expected to have surgery on his torn medial meniscus "sooner rather than later," and it could happen as soon as Friday.

      Advice: Beat writer K.C. Johnson also confirmed that there's a growing belief the tear isn't as serious as the one Rose suffered in the same knee on Nov. 2013, which kept him out for nine months after surgery. This could be a small cartilage tear requiring a minimally-invasive procedure, but it's possible that Rose could have his meniscus removed to prevent future setbacks. We won't have a timetable until the surgery is performed, but owners in re-draft leagues can't afford to hold him with the fantasy playoffs looming a few weeks away. Aaron Brooks is an excellent pickup in Rose's absence. Rotoworld.com

    • Derrick Rose to have surgery sooner, not later
      Derrick Rose's medial meniscus tear is not as severe as it was in 2013 and he is expected to have surgery sooner rather than later.

      Advice: Additionally, the Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson added some notes this morning: Rose was told after first surgery last season of possibility another tear could happen and that "snip" procedure likely then. He also opted for meniscus to be reattached rather than removed in 2013, but the snipping procedure tends to have a shorter rehab. There's no timetable for his return, but sadly his fantasy owners can cut him in all redraft leagues. Aaron Brook is likely to score more from the point guard spot and is worth a look in standard leagues. Meanwhile, expect Jimmy Butler to really step up. Butler saw a massive increase in production the last time Rose went down, but he's grown immensely since and could have another boost. Tony Snell has also been on a tear and is worth watching.

      Amare Stoudemire logged 17 minutes in his second game with the Mavs, finishing a win vs. the Raptors with six points, three rebounds and one steal off the bench.

      Advice: Dallas may rest Amare during back-to-backs as a precaution, and his lack of an official minute-limit doesn't mean much while Tyson Chandler and Dirk Nowitzki are both healthy. He's a perpetual injury risk and isn't worth gambling on outside of the deepest formats. Rotoworld.com

    • OKC wins as Russell Westbrook triple-doubles
      The Thunder cruised past the Pacers on Tuesday behind Russell Westbrook's third double-double of the season, as he racked up 20 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists in a mere 28 minutes of action.

      Advice: Westbrook has been outrageously good whenever Kevin Durant has been out of commission this year. With Durant on the bench, Westbrook's usage rate soars and he's posting a True Shooting percentage of 57.0 percent, compared to 50.2 percent with Durant on the court. The only bad news is that WB also picked up his league-leading 12th technical foul during tonight's game, putting him four away from a one-game suspension. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Derrick Rose has torn right meniscus
      Derrick Rose will have surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his right knee, the Bulls announced on Tuesday.

      Advice: This is heartbreaking news for the former MVP, who was just regaining his rhythm after recovering from a torn medial meniscus in his right knee last season. The Bulls will announce an official timetable after he has surgery but it's probable that he's done for the season, including the playoffs. He originally tore his meniscus last November and didn't play in a game until suiting up for FIBA in late August, a nine-month timetable which may be even longer this time considering his lengthy injury history. The only good news is that according to beat writer K.C. Johnson, "[The] initial belief is that this tear is not as extensive as tear in November 2013." Aaron Brooks, Kirk Hinrich and E'Twaun Moore will do their best to fill the void at PG in his absence, with Brooks and Hinrich standing out as the best speculative fantasy pickups. Get well, D-Rose.

      Advice: Garnett isn't really capable of playing much more than 20 minutes a game, and with season averages of 6.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game, he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues despite the starter tag.

      Derrick Rose had some overall soreness and was limited during Tuesday's practice, but he is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Hornets.

      Advice: Rose has been struggling with his shot for much of the season, and he has only hit 40.5 percent of his shots through the month of February with averages of 17.3 points, 5.8 assists and 1.0 three-pointer per game. He will however draw a favorable matchup against Mo Williams of the Hornets for Wednesday's game, so he has a chance of bouncing back from Monday's disappointing 1-of-13 shooting performance.

      Advice: Knight is going to produce more like a shooting guard than a point guard in Phoenix, and it's fair to wonder if he'll keep up with the gaudy rebounding totals. He did not have a steal or block or go to the free throw line at all, but altogether the increase in 3-point attempts will go a long way toward keeping his value from dipping too much. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Rose's name is much bigger than his game in standard fantasy formats, due to a combined 2.6 money stats per game (3s/STLs/BLKs) and an extremely weighted 40.7 percent mark from the field. Joakim Noah added eight points and 16 boards but no steals or blocks in the win. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight starting, Gerald Green benched
      Brandon Knight will start against the Celtics on Monday with Gerald Green moving to the bench.

      Advice: Knight didn't look great in his debut and was forcing the issue a bit, scoring 13 points with five assists in 25 minutes. He is going to play off the ball and he should slot into Goran Dragic's role from last season -- Dragic played 35.1 minutes per game last season. Knight probably won't be as great as he was with the Bucks, but he should become a must-start player once he figures out how to play with his new team. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight must adjust to two-PG system
      Brandon Knight admitted he'll need to adjust to playing off the ball.

      Advice: "It will be something I have to get used to," Knight said. "It's just a matter of playing basketball and making winning plays, whether on or off the ball." After dealing two of their point guards at the trade deadline, the Suns are once again banking on playing two point guards in the same backcourt, though Knight and Eric Bledsoe are a much different version than the previous pairing of Bledsoe and Goran Dragic. Knight also admitted the trade initially caught him off guard, so he's just like the rest of us in that regard. Rotoworld.com

    • Heat could add another big man to the roster
      The Heat could sign another player to fill its 15th roster spot, and the candidates include Thomas Robinson, Andray Blatche and Michael Beasley.

      Advice: Miami is 'discussing' what to do with the roster spot, and although the team could wind up doing nothing, it sounds like they might want to bring in some more help with how thin their frontcourt is. Despite recently getting permission to work out at AmericanAirlines Arena, we don't see a Beasley reunion in the cards for the Heat. Of the three names mentioned, Blatche, who has played this season in China, would seemingly be the best fit. Rotoworld.com

    • Westbrook trying to become a better leader
      Russell Westbrook said that he's "trying to do a better job of leading."

      Advice: If he wants to lead by example, then Westbrook is doing quite well. Since the All-Star break, Westbrook has been on fire with averages of 29.3 points, 6.7 rebounds, 12.3 assists, a steal and 1.3 triples on 51.8 percent shooting. Throughout the entire month of February, Westbrook checks in with averages of 30.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, 10.1 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.4 triples on 49.4 percent shooting. He's on his way to the Player of the Month Award, and then some. Rotoworld.com

    • Amare Stoudemire scores 14 points in debut
      Amare Stoudemire scored 14 points with three boards in just 11 minutes in his debut with the Mavericks on Sunday.

      Advice: The minutes are the big story here, as it's clear that the Mavericks will likely do everything they can to keep Stoudemire fresh for the postseason. At this point in his career, Stoudemire belongs on the wire in all but the deepest of leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Russell Westbrook dishes career-high 17 dimes
      Russell Westbrook dished out 10 assists in the second quarter Sunday's game, finishing with 21 points, eight rebounds and a career-high 17 dimes.

      Advice: Kevin Durant (foot) was out but the new-look Thunder still made quick work of the Nuggets, led by Westbrook's All-Star caliber performance. He rounded out his gaudy line with two 3-pointers and 8-of-12 shooting overall, and he trails only James Harden for 8-cat production over the past month. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 7:08 pm
    • Enes Kanter has 20 & 12 w/ three dimes vs DEN
      The Thunder blew past the Nuggets on Sunday, 119-94, thanks in part to Enes Kanter's 20 points (8-of-12 FGs, 4-of-6 FTs), 12 rebounds, three assists and one steal.

      Advice: Kevin Durant (foot) was out tonight and won't be re-evaluated until next weekend, giving Kanter a larger-than-expected role offensively. He took full advantage tonight, scoring efficiently while racking up his second straight double-double, and he even chipped in a steal during just 26 minutes of action. His fantasy value got a bump when he was dealt to OKC, though his typically paltry defensive stats may prevent him from anything more than mid-round value even in Durant's absence. Rotoworld.com

    • Amare Stoudemire will not have minutes limit
      Amare Stoudemire will not have a minutes restriction on Sunday against the Hornets.

      Advice: This still doesn't mean that Amare will play many minutes, as the Mavericks are going to want to keep him fresh for the postseason. Head coach Rick Carlisle said that Amare will play more minutes at center rather than power forward, but he also didn't rule out playing him alongside Tyson Chandler at times as well. Regardless, Amare is still only worth holding onto in deeper leagues until further notice. Rotoworld.com

    • Kyrie Irving scores 18 points on 10 attempts
      Kyrie Irving scored an efficient 18 points on 6-of-10 shooting (4-of-4 from the line) Sunday, adding two 3-pointers, two assists, two rebounds, one steal and two turnovers over 23 minutes of action.

      Advice: While Irving isn't going to be an elite assists guy (5.4 per game), his steady and efficient contributions to the scoring (21.8 points per game) 3-pointers (2.2) and steals (1.5) have him turning in first-round value on the year. He shows no signs of slowing down, and he should have a strong second-half of the season as Cleveland fights for a higher seed in the East. Rotoworld.com

      Chandler Parsons will miss the next three games due to a sprained left ankle according to head coach Rick Carlisle.

      Advice: This a tough blow for the Mavericks, and this means that Parsons next chance to play will be on Feb. 28 against the Nets. Al-Farouq Aminu will likely be the primary beneficiary in Parson's absence, while Richard Jefferson should see more minutes as well. We will continue to pass along updates on Parsons as soon as we know more. Rotoworld.com

      Amare Stoudemire will make his debut for the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday against the Hornets.

      Advice: He's going to serve as the primary backup to Dirk Nowitzki, and the Mavs will probably limit his minutes in an effort to keep him fresh for the postseason. Outside of deeper leagues, there's no reason to grab Stoudemire off the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Derrick Rose has foul trouble
      Derrick Rose played just 25 minutes due to foul trouble on Saturday against the Suns, scoring 16 points with four rebounds and five assists.

      Advice: It was a rare instance for foul trouble for Rose. He's only had four fouls in a game just once this season before tonight and averaged 1.2 per game. Rose was logging 36.0 minutes per game in his previous 10, but his fantasy value has been outside of the top 200 in that span. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight scores 13 points
      Brandon Knight had a mediocre outing in his first game with the Suns, scoring 13 points with five assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

      Advice: It might be hard to believe, but the Suns have a messier guard rotation now than when they did before their trades -- that should change soon. Knight did have the ball in his hands while he was out there, so this game isn't necessarily too discouraging. A lot of fantasy owners might freak out about Knight coming off the bench, so you might be able to get him pretty cheap. Rotoworld.com

    • P.J. Tucker scores 20 points in 26 minutes
      P.J. Tucker scored a season-high 20 points against the Bulls on Saturday with six rebounds, one assist, three steals and four 3-pointers.

      Advice: The Suns do not have the same potency on offense and it's led to Tucker being more involved. That factor should help his chances to score, especially considering he's logged 32 minutes per game in his previous nine games. He won't win you a league, but he's a sneaky top 125-150 guy to own.

    • Enes Kanter double-doubles in OKC debut
      Enes Kanter double-doubled in his OKC debut during a 110-103 win on Saturday over the Hornets, scoring 10 points with 13 rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He had five offensive boards and ran a ton of pick-and-roll offensive sets with Russell Westbrook. Kanter probably won't be as involved in the offense because of Kevin Durant being such an effective ISO player, so we're not too bullish about owning him. He's not worth owning in standard leagues with his decreased opportunity. Rotoworld.com

    • Russell Westbrook carries Thunder sans KD
      Russell Westbrook took over against the Hornets on Saturday with 33 points, seven rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and six turnovers on 12-of-27 from the field.

      Advice: He had 43.2 usage rate and a 47.6 assist percentage tonight, which is almost incomprehensible for a guy with 36 minutes. Westbrook is climbing into the MVP talk and few players can fill the stat sheet like he can in recent memory. In fact, he has a 37.4 usage rate and a 46.0 assist percentage on the season, which has never been done by anyone in the history of the NBA through a season (among minutes qualifiers). Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight coming off bench, Green starts
      Brandon Knight will come off the bench against the Bulls on Saturday night with Gerald Green remaining in the starting lineup.

      Advice: The Suns used Archie Goodwin as their backup point guard on Friday, so it at least makes some sense to play Knight off the bench at least until he gets on the same page. Before his breakout season this year, Knight's assist:turnover ratio was a disaster and he did play off the ball a lot in his Pistons days, so he could wind up starting at shooting guard soon. He will likely suffer a slight hit on total value, but he should thrive as the main guy in the second unit for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Bismack Biyombo out for a few more
      Bismack Biyombo (knee) is still expected to miss at least one more week.

      Advice: His bone bruise is improving and he is expected to being on-court work in the near future. With Biyombo out, Jason Maxiell will play more. Cody Zeller has not stepped up with the loss of Biyombo so far and his offensive output has really fallen off. Rotoworld.com

    • Chandler Parsons (ankle) doubtful Sunday
      Chandler Parsons (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Hornets on Saturday due to a bone bruise and sprain to his left ankle.

      Advice: Bone bruises on sprains usually result in missing multiple games, so Parsons is in jeopardy of missing Tuesday and Wednesday. With Parsons out last night, it was Charlie Villanueva and Al-Farouq Aminu picking up the forward minutes. Richard Jefferson may start, but Aminu seems like the guy to grab based on his per-minute output lately and how he played in all 10 lineup combinations in the fourth quarter last night. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He tweaked his hamstring on Friday and did play well, scoring 13 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer. Considering Jerryd Bayless will play almost all of his minutes at point guard, Mayo could get close to 30 minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight, Marcus Thornton active Sat.
      Brandon Knight and Marcus Thornton are expected to be active for Saturday's game against the Bulls.

      Advice: Knight is immediately expected to start alongside Eric Bledsoe which would shift Gerald Green to the bench, but Marcus Thornton's role isn't exactly known. Knight will likely see a slight dip in production across the board playing next to Bledsoe, but he is still a must-own player in all leagues. Check back after the game to see how he fares against Derrick Rose and the Bulls. Rotoworld.com

    • Enes Kanter and Kyle Singler will start Sat.
      Enes Kanter and Kyle Singler will draw the start vs. the Hornets on Saturday.

      Advice: Kanter is in line for big minutes right out of the gate with Steven Adams sidelined with a hand injury, so he can be viewed as a must-start option for the foreseeable future. Kanter has season averages of 13.8 points and 7.8 boards in 27.1 minutes per game, and while he does lack defensive stats, he should see plenty of touches on offense with Kevin Durant (foot) also out. Nick Collison started at center on Thursday, but he will now return to his limited role off the OKC bench and can be dropped in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Markieff Morris scored 31 points on 12-of-21 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in Friday's loss to the Wolves.

      Advice: Morris was bound to get a few extra looks with the Suns fielding a lineup without newly acquired Brandon Knight and Marcus Thornton, all while Goran Dragic and Isaiah Thomas were on their way out. The net effect of the trade deadline should help him get a few extra shots per night and help his already strong early round value. Rotoworld.com

    • Derrick Rose stinks vs. Detroit
      Derrick Rose had a rough night on Friday against the Pistons with eight points, two rebounds, two assists and six turnovers on 2-of-9 from the field.

      Advice: He apologized for his poor play following the game. "I just felt like I needed to being one of the leaders of the team," Rose said. He was starting to come around with a 30-point game to end the first half, but tonight dropped his season shooting to just 41.3 percent from the field. His usage rate is a shade down these days because of Jimmy Butler, as well. He's not a buy-low player. Rotoworld.com

      O.J. Mayo tweaked his hamstring in a win over the Nuggets on Friday, finishing with 13 points, four boards, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

      Advice: We will go ahead and consider him questionable for Sunday's game against the Hawks, but we should have another update after he is evaluated on Saturday. Mayo has scored in double digits in nine out of his last ten games, so hopefully this injury won't force him to miss any action. Expect Jared Dudley, Khris Middleton and Giannis Antetokounmpo to all see more opportunities on offense if Mayo misses any time. Rotoworld.com

    • Parsons to get MRI on ankle on Saturday
      Chandler Parsons suffered a left ankle sprain and did not return to Friday's game, and he will get an MRI on Saturday.

      Advice: He limped to the locker room under his own power and the team ruled him out for the game about three minutes later in real time. His ankle sprain didn't look too bad and the Mavs are off until Sunday, so maybe Parsons won't miss time. If he does, Richard Jefferson and Al-Farouq Aminu would benefit. Parsons finished with 13 points, four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer. Rotoworld.com

      Kevin Garnett will be unavailable for Friday's game against the Suns, as expected.

      Advice: He is said to be targeting Wednesday against the Wizards, so it's safe to assume he'll be unavailable for Monday's game against the Rockets as well. He's not capable of playing much more than 20 minutes a game, and he should remain on the waiver wire in most leagues. Gorgui Dieng and Nikola Pekovic will man the Timberwolves frontcourt, and it's unlikely Garnett will overtake either guy as a starter. Rotoworld.com

      Brandon Knight has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Timberwolves.

      Advice: None of the Suns new acquisitions will be available tonight, so it will likely be Eric Bledsoe running the show at point guard, with Gerald Green sliding into the starting two-spot. Bledsoe will draw an extremely favorable matchup tonight, and he's looking like an excellent plug-and-play option in daily leagues, as he'll likely be forced into heavy minutes with Archie Goodwin as his only available backup.

    • All-Star Game Mode: Westbrook explodes for 34
      Russell Westbrook looked like he was playing in the 2015 All-Star Game during Thursday's 104-89 win over the Mavericks, making 9-of-17 from the field and all 14 free throws for 34 points with five rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, two 3-pointers and six turnovers.

      Advice: It was almost like Dallas couldn't stop him with a 10-man lineup. He was ridiculous in the fourth quarter, posting a net rating of 61.1, a usage rate of 55.6, and an 80.0 effective field goal percentage. Westbrook would likely get even more chances to score should Kevin Durant need to rest. Regardless, no guard has the potential to fill the stat sheet like Bestbrook. Rotoworld.com

      Brandon Knight was traded to the Suns on Thursday.

      Advice: So much for a boring deadline. Knight is having a fantastic season with the Bucks this season, so this is probably one of the biggest surprises of the day. He should have a similar role next to Eric Bledsoe, but his usage rate will definitely be heading south. He is a slight loser in the fantasy world, but it's fairly insignificant. Rotoworld.com

    • Thunder trade for Enes Kanter at deadline
      The Thunder acquired Enes Kanter from the Jazz on Thursday.

      Advice: Kanter's move to OKC is part of a three-team deal with the Pistons -- Kendrick Perkins goes to Utah, Reggie Jackson goes to Detroit, Kyle Singler goes to Oklahoma City, and more pieces could move as details emerge. Kanter should start immediately and will likely keep the job even once Steven Adams (hand) returns to action. Fantasy owners should be pleased with the move as Kanter is no longer stifled by Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert, the latter of whom also gets a big boost with this trade. Rotoworld.com

      Kevin Garnett has agreed to waive his no-trade clause and will be traded to the Wolves for Thaddeus Young, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

      Advice: Nobody saw this coming until yesterday. KG will end his career where he started it and the Wolves are reportedly interested in extending his deal for two more seasons. He is only playing minutes in the teens right now, so he won't be nearly as great as he was in his Minnesota days -- he was the consensus No. 1 pick in fantasy leagues for several years there. Fantasy owners can leave him on the wire in almost all leagues. Mason Plumlee and Cory Jefferson should get more run. Shabazz Muhammad will play a lot more with Thad gone. Rotoworld.com

There is some talk of Garnett being bought out after the deadline, but he's not going to play much no matter where he winds up. In fact, KG has logged just 15.6 minutes per game this month.

      Advice: The deal is official and it's expected to be for the league minimum, which is still expected to be $485,670 for STAT. The Mavericks are desperate for a big man and they've even had to play Dirk Nowitzki at the five. With Stoudemire in the mix, we should see a little less from Al-Farouq Aminu. Stoudemire is likely just going to back up Dirk Nowitzki because a Dirk-STAT frontline doesn't sound like a good solution on defense. He can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Enes Kanter and the Utah Jazz are far apart on contract figures, according to Jody Genessy of the Deseret News.

      Advice: A contract extension would keep Kanter from becoming a restricted free agent after the 2014-15 season, but it sounds like the sides aren't even close. Gennessy reports that Utah offered a four-year, $32 million deal, but Kanter's camp wants Gordon Hayward-type money (four years, $63 million).
