    • Al Horford scores 23, Hawks win 19th in a row
      Al Horford had another magnificent game during a 91-85 win over the 76ers on Saturday, making 10-of-16 from the field for 23 points with 11 rebounds, four assists and three blocks.

      Advice: That's the Hawks 19th win in a row and they're already at 40 wins on the season. As for Horford, he has been ridiculous in his last 10 games, making 69.8 percent from the field for averages of 18.6 points, 8.4 boards, 5.1 assists, 1.4 blocks and 0.8 steals. He's also made 84.6 percent from the line and is an absolute monster. He's been a top-five fantasy player in that span. Rotoworld.com

    • Cody Zeller scores career-high 21 points Sat
      Cody Zeller scored a career-high 21 points in a win over the Nuggets on Saturday while adding eight boards, three assists, three steals and two blocks in 32 minutes.

      Advice: It was arguably the best offensive game of his career, as he was able to connect on 10 of his 11 shots from the field. Marvin Williams' (head) absence opened up some extra minutes tonight, but Zeller definitely made the most of his opportunity. If you're in need of a big, it's not a bad idea to take a flier on Zeller. Rotoworld.com

    • Noah Vonleh sets multiple career-highs Sat
      Noah Vonleh set career-highs in points (10), rebounds (7) and blocks (2) in 16 minutes vs. the Nuggets on Saturday.

      Advice: This game was over in a hurry, meaning Vonleh got some extra run during garbage time. Vonleh still has a long way to go before we can recommend adding him outside of keeper leagues, so owners can safely leave him on the wire for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Amir Johnson scores 17 points in full line
      Amir Johnson scored 17 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

      Advice: He had a toe issue from Friday, but it obviously didn't affect him tonight. Johnson was floundering before with back-to-back six-point games on Tuesday and Wednesday, but he had a 24-point outing on Friday and this gem today. His owners are back in business and he's worth a look while he's hot right now. Rotoworld.com

    • Tobias Harris scores eight points
      Tobias Harris started for the first time since his ankle injury from earlier this month, playing 30 minutes for eight points, three rebounds, five assists and one steal.

      Advice: He didn't have a great game and made just 2-of-8 from the field. Harris was on a roll before his injury, but he's been extremely quiet in the past five games, averaging 8.6 points, 3.8 boards, 1.8 assists and 0.2 triples on 28.6 percent from the field. Get those buy-low offers ready. Rotoworld.com

    • Rudy Gay scores 31 points in win vs. Pacers
      Rudy Gay scored a game-high 31 points against the Pacers on Saturday during a 99-94 win with five rebounds, three assists and one block.

      Advice: He played 44 minutes a had a nice rhythm on the offensive side. Gay had a nice January and averaged 18.8 points, 5.1 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.0 triples on 47.3 percent from the field and 89.8 percent from the line in his previous games this month. As long as his Achilles holds up, he should be a stud. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Durant (toe) will start vs. Grizzlies
      Kevin Durant (toe) will start in Saturday's game against the Grizzlies.

      Advice: After two straight games on the sidelines, Durant will return to action in a crucial game against a strong Memphis team. Durant's probably not going to be 100 percent, but he's still obviously a must-start option. Perry Jones will move to the bench with this news and is safe to cut in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Rajon Rondo (head) will not return vs. Magic
      Rajon Rondo (head) will not return to Saturday's game vs. the Magic.

      Advice: He was struck in the head by teammate Richard Jefferson's foot while trying to collect a loose ball and was ruled out for the rest of the game a few moments later. Rondo's nose was pouring blood right after it happened, and there's a good chance that he could have a concussion. Rondo isn't expected to be re-evaluated until he returns to Dallas, so we will provide an update as soon as we hear anything. Devin Harris figures to see an uptick in minutes with this news, while Monta Ellis will have even more responsibility. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Durant (GTD) going through warmups
      Kevin Durant (toe) is going through warmups on Saturday before the game against the Grizzlies.

      Advice: He is a game-time decision and we should have news on his status soon. It appears Durant is at least trying to suit up for a very important game. His owners will want to check back soon. If he's out, Perry Jones will start while Dion Waiters and Reggie Jackson benefit most. Rotoworld.com

    • Thabo Sefolosha (calf) is out for 6-8 weeks
      Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will be out for at least 6-8 weeks.

      Advice: This is a tough blow for the Hawks, but Sefolosha was only averaging 19 minutes per game this season, so his absence shouldn't make too many fantasy implications. Kent Bazemore will likely fill the void for the Hawks, and with DeMarre Carroll also out with an Achilles injury, Bazemore is worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Kenneth Faried, Darrell Arthur out Saturday
      Kenneth Faried (illness) and Darrell Arthur (illness) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

      Advice: That means there should be a lot of J.J. Hickson and the Nuggets will also use Wilson Chandler as a stretch four. That should also open up some minutes for Alonzo Gee and Danilo Gallinari, as well. Faried should be back for Tuesday against the 76ers. Rotoworld.com

    • Tobias Harris will start, Frye off the bench
      Tobias Harris will start in place of Channing Frye on Saturday against the Mavs.

      Advice: It's been a long time coming for Harris and he should play minutes close to 30 even with a bruise on his leg. Harris should be in all standard lineups tonight in what should be an up-tempo game. Frye is not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Amir Johnson will play on Saturday night
      Amir Johnson (toe) will play against the Wizards on Saturday.

      Advice: He is having a nail issue on his big toe, but this isn't something that should affect him once he gets the adrenaline pumping. Fantasy owners can use him like they normally would and dial down the expectations for Patrick Patterson. Rotoworld.com

    • Amir Johnson (toe) is uncertain for Saturday
      Amir Johnson (toe) is up in the air for Saturday against the Wizards.

      Advice: His left big toenail fell off and he played through it yesterday. There has been no indication that Johnson won't play, so his owners can pencil him in as a starter for now. We'll have an update later. If he can't go, Patrick Patterson becomes an intriguing option, especially with Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) also hurt. Rotoworld.com

    • Thabo Sefolosha (calf) out on Saturday
      Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will not play vs. the 76ers on Saturday.

      Advice: He was ruled out pretty quickly just like he was on Friday, so it appears that this won't be the last game he misses due to his calf. DeMarre Carroll (Achilles) is also out, meaning Kent Bazemore should see big minutes in a favorable matchup with the 76ers. Rotoworld.com

      DeMarre Caroll (Achilles) and Thabo Sefolosha (calf) will not play vs. the 76ers on Saturday.

      Advice: Kent Bazemore will play all the minutes he can handle on Saturday, and is worth a long look in deeper leagues. Carroll should still be held onto in most leagues, and the Hawks probably just didn't want to risk him against the lowly 76ers. We will provide additional updates as needed. Rotoworld.com

    • Andrea Bargnani (calf) still weeks away
      Andrea Bargnani (calf) is reportedly still weeks away from a return to action, and coach Derek Fisher said that he is still limited at practice.

      Advice: It's not out of the question that we might not see him in action again this season, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the Knicks cut ties with him as well. Bargnani isn't an option in any fantasy league at this point, and leaving him on the waiver wire is one of the easiest decisions you can make. Rotoworld.com

    • Cavaliers to pick up Timofey Mozgov's option
      The Cavaliers will pick up Timofey Mosgov's $4.9 million team option for next season according to Sportando.

      Advice: Mozgov is literally a huge reason why the Cavaliers have had so much success in recent weeks, and the decision to bring him back couldn't have been any easier. Mozgov is going to be a double-double threat every night from here on out, so he is going to be worth owing in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Durant (toe) is a game-time decision
      Kevin Durant was a partial participant at shootaround on Saturday morning, and he will be a game-time decision against Memphis.

      Advice: He has been sidelined for the past two games due to his sprained toe, but a huge matchup against Memphis could prove too tempting for him not to play. Durant's owners will have to check back for official confirmation prior to tip-off, but he certainly belongs in all lineups is if he's activated. If Durant sits, expect Perry Jones to draw another start, but Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka are the true beneficiaries if that's the case. Rotoworld.com

    • Mike Conley (wrist) still probable for Sat
      Mike Conley (wrist) participated in shootaround on Saturday morning, and is expected to play against the Thunder.

      Advice: He hasn't been able to play in the Grizzlies' last two games, so there's a good chance that they keep a close eye on his minutes. Conley is also going to have to chase Russell Westbrook around the court all game, so owners in daily leagues may want to look elsewhere. If Conley ends up sitting as a precaution, Beno Udrih will stay relevant for a little bit longer. Rotoworld.com

      Tobias Harris (quad) will be available to play against the Mavericks on Saturday.

      Advice: It was originally thought to be a knee injury, but we have now learned that Harris simply suffered a bruised lower right quad during Thursday's game against the Bucks. This is obviously great news for Harris, and it doesn't look like he will be in danger of missing any time. Harris is still coming off the bench for the time being, but with head coach Jacque Vaughn's job in jeopardy, Harris should be in line for more playing time moving forward. Rotoworld.com

    • Kanter plays just 19 minutes on Friday
      Enes Kanter played just 19 minutes on Friday, scoring five points on 2-of-7 shooting with 10 rebounds and as usual, no steals or blocks.

      Advice: Quin Snyder didn't seem happy with Kanter's comments downplaying how good Andrew Bogut was, and with Trevor Booker playing well the big man lost some minutes. He's going to be worth owning as a low-end asset in standard fantasy leagues in all reasonable scenarios. Rotoworld.com

    • Rondo plays just 23 minutes against Heat
      Rajon Rondo played just 23 minutes on Friday against the Heat, scoring four points on 2-of-4 shooting with four rebounds, four assists and two steals.

      Advice: Rondo has not been a hit in Dallas and he's been returning bench-worthy numbers in fantasy leagues. In 9-cat leagues he's in the tank unless you're punting turnovers. Owners should simply keep him benched until Dallas figures out how they want to deploy him. This is a veteran club with some great offensive minds, so there's still a good chance they get it figured out. Rotoworld.com

    • Al Horford fills it up against the Blazers
      Al Horford filled the stat sheet against the Blazers on Friday with 17 points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He's on fire. In his previous 10 games, Horford averaged 17.9 points, 7.9 boards, 5.1 assists, 1.2 blocks and 0.7 steals on 71.1 percent from the field. He's certainly capable of being a top-10 fantasy asset and his owners should be asking for a lot if they want to sell high. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: It's nice to see the Grizzlies will get their star point guard back, but they didn't miss him in their last two games. Conley should have his hands full in what should be a great game on Saturday night. If you added Beno Udrih, you can let him loose. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He doesn't really do much as an offensive guy, so there isn't much of ceiling here. In fact, he only has a 15.1 usage rate as a starter this season. Sefolosha is a low-end punt play in DFS tonight and will need some points in transition to hit his value. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He is just banged up and the Hawks will allow him to heal. Carroll has been one of the more efficient small forwards in the NBA and his steals numbers have pushed him to mid-round value on the year. His fantasy owners should bench him tonight and expect him to play on Saturday against the 76ers. Thabo Sefolosha will start. Rotoworld.com

      DeMarre Carroll will likely be out for Friday's game against the Trail Blazers.

      Advice: If Carroll does indeed sit, Thabo Sefolosha would likely slide into the starting lineup. Carroll was described as "a little banged up," after sitting out Thursday's practice, and it appears he's going to be watching Friday's game from the sidelines. Through five starts at the forward spot this season, Sefolosha is averaging 9.2 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 1.0 block per game, so he can only be viewed as an option in deeper leagues.

      Advice: Conley has missed the past two games with a wrist injury, and the Grizzlies continue to be sparse with providing updates on his status. We should get another update on Conley after Saturday morning's shootaround, and if he's again unavailable, it will be Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes splitting minutes at point guard. Stay tuned.

      Kenneth Faried was a disaster on defense against the Grizzlies during a 99-69 loss on Thursday, scoring 10 points with seven rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

      Advice: The bar was pretty low against one of the toughest matchups for frontcourt guys in the NBA. Faried has been mediocre in his last five, averaging 11.6 points, 8.2 boards, 1.2 assists and 0.8 blocks. There's a buy-low window opening up on him again. Rotoworld.com

    • Tobias Harris says he has a right knee injury
      Tobias Harris said he hurt right knee on Thursday night.

      Advice: Towards the end of the third quarter, Harris was walking off the court slowly before a timeout. He stayed in the game for a bit and didn't seem to be bothered by it much before he went to the locker room. This doesn't sound like a serious injury, but he should be considered questionable to play on Saturday against the Mavs. If he's out, Aaron Gordon, Evan Fournier and Kyle O'Quinn may benefit.

    • Tobias Harris battles through ankle injury
      Tobias Harris left Thursday's game in the fourth quarter due to an apparent right ankle injury.

      Advice: He rolled his right ankle against the Lakers on Jan. 9 and he played through it, but it cost him five games due to swelling. Harris hasn't been quite right either and he was limping on occasion multiple times in the second half tonight. If he's out, Aaron Gordon and Channing Frye would benefit.

The 2015 part of the season has not been nice to Conley with two ankle sprains and this current issue costing him time.

    • Enes Kanter leads Jazz with 21-11-1
      Enes Kanter came through with 21 points, 11 rebounds and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.

      Advice: The Jazz controlled much of this game, but fell apart late as the Clippers cruised by them for their 13th straight win over Utah. As much as Rudy Gobert continues to threaten Kanter's playing time, but big man just won't give way. Kanter is hot again, scoring 20-plus points in four of his last five games and averaging 19.6 points, 10.8 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 0.4 blocks over that stretch. Sure, you can be mad at him for a lack of blocked shots, but the rest of his numbers are pretty impressive. Rudy Gobert was in foul trouble early and played just 10 minutes, but Kanter's strong play lately is going to make it tough for Gobert to get heavy minutes. Rotoworld.com

      Al Horford hit 10-of-13 shots for 20 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

      Advice: Horford came into this one hitting 53-of-72 shots over his last seven games, and that number got a lot better tonight. The Hawks are playing out of their minds right now and have won 17 straight, and 31 of their last 33 games. And with Mike Budenholzer coaching the East All-Stars, it's possible that Horford, Paul Millsap (28 & 15), Jeff Teague (13 & 11) and Kyle Korver (full stat line, 5 3-pointers) could all be joining him in Brooklyn as coach's picks.

    • Amir Johnson quiet in win over Kings
      Amir Johnson hit just 2-of-4 shots with six points, four rebounds, five assists, five turnovers and a 3-pointer in 21 minutes.

      Advice: Johnson has really cooled off, scoring six or fewer points in three of his last four games, and in the game where he scored 17 points, he managed just two rebounds. Patrick Patterson had 11 points, two steals and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes tonight, but neither player is doing enough right now to be in fantasy lineups. Rotoworld.com

Mozgov has been instrumental in the run and is averaging 10.0 points, 8.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks over his last five games.

Fantasy owners' should keep an eye on Rondo's health and playing time over the next few weeks -- he's averaging just 27.5 minutes over the Mavs' past six games, possibly a consequence of a lingering Achilles injury.

    • Kevin Durant (toe) is questionable for Wed
      Kevin Durant (toe) remains day-to-day, but his status for Wednesday's game against the Knicks is still up in the air.

      Advice: The injury was never thought to be serious, but the Thunder have every right to be cautious with their franchise player after he missed the beginning of the season with a fracture in his foot. We should know more about his status after shootaround Wednesday morning, so owners will have to check back then for updates. If Durant can't go Perry Jones will likely draw another start, but he isn't a reliable option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Mike Conley to dress, but is unlikely to play
      Mike Conley (wrist) will dress for Tuesday's game against Dallas, but he is not expected to play.

      Advice: Owners should probably keep Conley on the bench tonight, as he will likely serve as Emergency depth for the Grizzlies. Beno Udrih will draw the start in his absence, and should be considered in most leagues for owners in need of short-term value. Nick Calathes, Courtney Lee and Vince Carter should all benefit as well. Rotoworld.com

    • Mike Conley, Tony Allen questionable Tuesday
      Mike Conley (wrist) and Tony Allen (ankle) are considered questionable for Tuesday's game at Dallas.

      Advice: Conley sprained his left (shooting) wrist during Monday night's win at Orlando. He fought through it until the game turned into a blowout in the third quarter, but clearly wasn't himself as he played just 22 minutes total and went 2-of-8 from the field with zero assists. The Grizzlies are on a back-to-back, so there's no shootaround to get updates from. We likely won't have official word on the status of Conley or Allen until roughly 7:30pm ET. If they can't go, Beno Udrih gets a big bump and Jeff Green gets a little one. Rotoworld.com

      Mike Conley said he sprained his left wrist and played through the pain in the second half.

      Advice: He said he'll take a "wait and see" approach for Tuesday's game in Dallas. Conley is coming off ankle injuries from last week and he's struggled in a big way since. If Conley can't go, Beno Udrih will be a strong play in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Mike Conley scored just five points with one rebound, no assists and one steal in 22 minutes against the Magic on Monday.

      Advice: This is a surprise to see him flop with the Magic giving up a lot of big lines to point guards these days. Conley hasn't quite hit his stride since returning from an ankle injury, averaging just 12.0 points, 2.0 boards, 1.8 assists and 0.5 steals on 37.2 percent from the field. We'd be willing to bet this is the low point of his season, so buy low if you can. Rotoworld.com

      Tobias Harris played just 20 minutes off the bench against the Grizzlies on Monday during a 103-94 loss with eight points, two rebounds and one steal.

      Advice: With Channing Frye moving into the doghouse, there should be a very good chance of Harris starting in the near future. Dewayne Dedmon moved into the starting unit in the second half, but chances are coach Jacque Vaughn just slotted him into Frye's spot in the rotation so he didn't have to make an in-game tweak. Harris is one of the best buy-low players right now. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Durant (toe) out for Monday night
      Kevin Durant (toe) will not play against the Wolves on Monday.

      Advice: He suffered the injury in Cleveland on Sunday and it's being called a left great toe sprain. Durant went through warmups, but there was too much soreness and he decided he'll sit. It's anyone's guess if he'll play on Wednesday and the Thunder do only have three games this week. It'll be Russell Westbrook running the show with a host of others stepping up. Expect Dion Waiters and Anthony Morrow to benefit the most. Perry Jones may start, though. It's worth mentioning KD needed surgery on his right foot. Rotoworld.com

      Al Horford has shot 53-of-72 from the field over his last seven games.

      Advice: In other words, Horford is on absolute fire. During that stretch, he's also 19-of-22 from the free throw line. "I’m taking good shots within the offense," he said.

      Amir Johnson (sore left shoulder) scored 17 efficient points vs. the Pistons on Sunday, going 7-of-9 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line with two rebounds and one block.

      Advice: Johnson played 28 minutes and continues to grit through various injuries, as he's missed only three games despite being banged up all season. He's a nice low-end source of rebounds, blocks and FG percentages, but that's about it. Rotoworld.com

      Rajon Rondo made 7-of-10 shots with two 3-pointers on Sunday, scoring 17 points with eight rebounds and nine assists in his first double-digit scoring game since Jan. 13.

      Advice: This was just the fourth time since joining the Mavs that Rondo has made more than half of his shot attempts, so owners should enjoy it while it lasts. He padded his near triple-double with a pair of steals and only two turnovers in 34 minutes, taking full advantage of the absence of Pelicans' PG Jrue Holiday (leg). Rotoworld.com

      Tobias Harris came off the bench again on Sunday, notching 11 points on 2-of-5 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs, with seven rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes of action.

      Advice: This time it was rookie Aaron Gordon vaulting ahead of Harris into the starting lineup. The Magic rank 25th in bench scoring (15.9 ppg), so it's understandable that coach Jacque Vaughn wants Harris' firepower with the reserves, but it's a lousy development for fantasy owners. There are no guarantees that Harris will resume starting, but this has all the hallmarks of an ideal buy-low moment. Rotoworld.com

    • Hawks beat Wolves for 16th consecutive win
      The Hawks won their 16th consecutive game on Sunday, aided by Al Horford's near-perfect 19 points on 8-of-9 field goals and 3-of-3 free throws.

      Advice: He also had six rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and one turnover in 31 minutes, and the Hawks are looking virtually unstoppable at the halfway point of the season. This is a quintessential Horford line, blending nice numbers with even nicer efficiency, and he's staked himself to top-20 value in 9-cat leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Kevin Durant led the Thunder on Sunday with 32 points on 12-of-23 shooting, as well as six rebounds, nine assists and two blocks, but it wasn't enough to hold off the Cavaliers.

      Advice: Durant chipped in one 3-pointer and had only one turnover in 40 minutes, in the latest showcase for his elite fantasy talents. Oklahoma City's defeat dropped their record to .500 again, and they remain 3 1/2 games behind Phoenix for the final playoff spot out West. Rotoworld.com

      Timofey Mozgov missed all three of his field goal attempts on Sunday, hitting a pair of free throws to finish with two points, six rebounds and two blocks in 28 minutes vs. the Thunder.

      Advice: He was coming off three straight double-doubles so he earns a pass for this dud, but quiet games won't be uncommon given his garbage-man role offensively -- he had a usage rate of 9.1 percent on Sunday. Mozgov has still returned top-100 value over the past seven games, so owners should strive to remain patient. Rotoworld.com

    • Amir Johnson (shoulder) questionable Sunday
      Amir Johnson is dealing with a sore left shoulder and is considered questionable to play vs. Detroit on Sunday.

      Advice: He was benched during the second half of Friday's game and this could be one of the reasons why. We will update Johnson's status when we know more but owners should have a backup plan ready. If Johnson sits, Patrick Patterson has been on fire lately and would be worth a look in most leagues while he is this hot. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Cody Zeller plays 32 minutes
      Cody Zeller played 32 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday with eight points, eight rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks.

      Advice: With Bismack Biyombo (knee) and Marvin Williams (head) hurt, Zeller is going to get more minutes. He isn't much of a stat-filler because he's not really involved in the offense while he's with the first unit. Unless he was already on the short list of players you were considering, his outlook shouldn't change too much with the injuries. Rotoworld.com

    • Tobias Harris not a fan of coming off bench
      Tobias Harris is not thrilled about coming off the bench for the past two games, but wants to remain professional about it.

      Advice: "Do I like it? No," Harris said. "But I'm a professional." It's interesting how he has remained on the bench despite rookie Devyn Marble's uninspiring play in the starting lineup, and one would almost have to start wondering if the reports that Harris wants to join the Knicks as a free agent has anything to do with it. While we still believe Harris will return to the starting lineup sooner rather than later, this is definitely something to keep an eye on going forward. Rotoworld.com

      Rajon Rondo stressed that he wasn't upset with coach Carlisle's decision to bench him during the fourth quarter of Friday's loss to the Bulls.

      Advice: "Coach made a decision. It's as simple as that," said Rondo. "I've been in this game a long time. It's not like it's the end of the world. I like what Coach Carlisle has done for me this year. I don't have any regrets." Rondo has averaged 10.1 points, 7.1 assists and 5.1 rebounds in 16 games since being traded to the Mavs, and it's clear that his value is trending down. However, he is playing for a new contract and he still has time to turn things around. Rotoworld.com

    • Rondo benched down the stretch vs. Bulls
      Rajon Rondo was benched during the fourth quarter of the Mavs' 102-98 loss to the Bulls on Friday, finishing with six points on 3-of-9 shooting, two rebounds, four assists and a steal in 27 minutes.

      Advice: Rondo was benched earlier in the year under the premise of Achilles' pain and it's starting to look to some like it's a basic offensive issue. Teams are packing it in against Rondo and Rick Carlisle decided to go with Devin Harris instead. Rondo is also struggling in fantasy leagues, so consider moving him to your bench in 8-cat leagues. Rondo is radioactive in 9-cat leagues unless you're punting turnovers, but some added production might sneak him into late-round value in those formats. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He came off the bench on Wednesday, as well.

Johnson was stringing together some nice games, so this dud is a surprise. In fact, he averaged 10.3 points, 7.2 boards, 1.0 blocks and 0.6 steals in his previous 2015 games.

      Enes Kanter scored 23 points against the Bucks on Thursday with 16 boards, two steals and one block in 36 minutes.

      Advice: He stepped up with Derrick Favors (personal) not in the lineup today and had a double-double in the first half. Kanter had a 24-17 line on Wednesday against the Cavs, but he was floundering before that over his previous two with averages of 5.5 points and 3.5 boards.

      Advice: The Hawks are getting solid contributions from their core on most nights and Carroll, who is a starter, runs hot and cold, like most of the Hawks bench players. He's a nice player to have on your roster but isn't a must-start fantasy player due to the unselfishness of the Hawks. They've now tied a franchise record with 14 straight wins, and after starting the season at 7-6, have gone 28-2 since.

Kanter was benched during the second half of Sunday's game, and even though he will remain the starter, Gobert will threaten his playing time every night. We will continue to monitor this situation very closely. Rotoworld.com
