      Coach Doc Rivers admitted that Spencer Hawes is struggling to adjust to his role of coming off the bench for the Clippers. Rotoworld.com

    • Stephen Curry scores 25 points in win vs. PHX
      Stephen Curry scored a game-high 25 points against the Suns during a 106-87 win on Saturday with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

      Advice: The Suns were making a run to start the fourth quarter and cut the GSW lead to seven, but Curry checked in with seven minutes left and ballooned the lead to 18 in just four minutes of action. The Warriors don't have the best record in the NBA anymore, but they're still arguably the best team in the NBA right now. They'll play the Hawks on Friday, so that should be fun. Rotoworld.com

    • Draymond Green fills the stat sheet
      Draymond Green had one of his usual stat-stuffing lines against the Suns on Saturday with nine points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

      Advice: He destroyed the Suns on defense and the scorekeepers looked to have missed another block on Eric Bledsoe today. Green just won't stop putting up numbers and he's going to be a fantasy stud all season. Even with the Warriors at full strength up front, Green has still been a top-30 fantasy player in the past two weeks. Rotoworld.com

    • Gerald Green plays 13 minutes
      Gerald Green played 13 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday with eight points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: He was a DNP-CD on Friday and coach Jeff Hornacek said he just tried a rotation without Green. The Suns won that game against the Bulls, so that's probably not a good sign. That said, the four-fingered assassin is worth owning in standard leagues for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Dudley scores 18 points in start
      Jared Dudley stayed hot against the Blazers on Saturday night with 18 points, six rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He lit it up on Thursday in his first start with a full 17-point line. Ersan Ilyasova (groin) is likely going to miss more time and the Bucks have looked amazing in their last two games with their smaller lineup. Dudley has enough upside to grab in standard leagues. Although, he would likely cool off once Ilyasova is back. Rotoworld.com

    • John Henson has another big game in win
      John Henson made his second consecutive start on Saturday against the Blazers with 14 points, eight rebounds, one assist and four blocks in 27 minutes.

      Advice: He had a double-double on Thursday and is clearly capitalizing on his chance with Zaza Pachulia (calf) out of the lineup. Pachulia is a slow healer, so Henson could get some extra run for a while. If you want to give him a look in even a shallow league and see if he can keep it going, it's not a bad idea. Rotoworld.com

    • Revenge Served Cold: Lillard struggles again
      Damian Lillard made just 6-of-19 from the field for 19 points against Bucks on Saturday with five rebounds, nine assists, three steals, one block, one 3-pointer and six turnovers.

      Advice: He had a bad game on Friday and is just 2-of-19 from beyond the arc in his last two games. Lillard looked like he was going to take over after being snubbed from the All-Star Game, but it's been the opposite. He is still taking plenty of shots and that's not going to change, so it's just a matter of time until he turns it on again. There's a good chance that will happen on Tuesday against the Jazz.

    • Thomas Robinson starts the second half
      Thomas Robinson started the second half of Saturday's game against the Bucks, finishing with four points, six rebounds, three steals and one block in 24 minutes.

      Advice: Coach Terry Stotts has started three different centers in his last three halves. Basically, trying to solve a Stotts rotation is harder to do than simultaneously solving a Rubik's Cube and a New York Times crossword puzzle while looking at a Magic Eye. In other words, leave Robinson on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Zach Randolph drops 21 and 18 on OKC in win
      Zach Randolph logged his 12 consecutive double-double against the Thunder during an 85-74 win on Saturday, scoring 21 points with 18 rebounds, three assists and one block in 37 minutes.

      Advice: He made just 8-of-20 from the field in his worst game based on field goal percentage in 2015. Randolph averaged 20.0 points and 13.7 boards on 58.5 percent from the field in his previous 10 and is playing a little better than expected right now. It's not a bad idea to try and sell high while he's healthy. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:30 pm
    • Mike Conley returns, plays poorly
      Mike Conley returned to the lineup against the Thunder on Saturday with 14 points, six rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He missed two games with a wrist injury and only made 5-of-16 from the field in the win. Conley has not played well in each of his last three games, averaging just 8.0 points, 1.7 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.3 treys on 32.1 percent from the field. This might be his lowest value all year and we expect him to heat up against the Suns on Monday. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:26 pm
    • Dion Waiters scores seven points
      Dion Waiters scored seven points on 3-of-14 from the field for seven points with seven rebounds, one assist, two steals, one 3-pointer and four turnovers against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

      Advice: He had a 26.7 usage rate and a 25.0 effective field goal percentage in the loss tonight. Waiters just is not working out for the Thunder. In his last five games, he's averaged 9.4 points with 2.8 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.4 steals. The fact that he's taking shots from Kevin Durant doesn't seem optimal. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:13 pm
    • Kawhi Leonard scores 24 points in loss on Sat
      Kawhi Leonard scored 24 points on 8-of-18 shooting in a loss to the Clippers on Saturday, adding five boards, three steals and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

      Advice: It was the most points he had scored since Dec. 1 against the 76ers, and he also tied his season-high of four 3-pointers tonight. As long as Leonard remains healthy, he's going to be an elite fantasy asset for the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:13 pm
    • LeBron James scores 36 points in victory
      LeBron James scored 36 points in a 106-90 win against the Wolves on Saturday with six rebounds, five assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

      Advice: That rest served him well and the Cavs finished extremely strong, outscoring the Wolves 30-11 in the fourth quarter. The Cavs have won 10 straight and LeBron has been on cruise control while he is active. He did a wrist injury to cost him a game on Wednesday and he also had back and knee trouble, so he might have a tough time staying healthy. Still, he'll be a monster while he's active. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:08 pm
    • Matt Bonner returns to bench role Saturday
      Matt Bonner shifted to the bench for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers, chipping in with one rebound in eight minutes of action.

      Advice: Tiago Splitter moved back into the starting lineup for this one, but no lineup is permanent when coach Gregg Popovich is at the helm. Neither Bonner nor Splitter will have large enough roles to matter in most leagues, so they can be left on the wire with confidence. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:07 pm
    • Revenge Game? Andrew Wiggins scores 33 points
      Andrew Wiggins scored a career-high 33 points against the Cavs on Saturday during a 106-90 loss, adding one rebound, one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He made 14-of-25 from the field and looked great against the team that drafted him. Wiggins had himself a great start to the 2015 year, averaging 19.8 points, 4.6 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.9 treys on 47.1 percent from the field. This guy is going to be good for a long time. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:59 pm
    • J.R. Smith cools off vs. the Wolves
      J.R. Smith cooled off against the Wolves on Saturday with five points, one rebound, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He has been hit and miss in his last five, averaging 10.2 points, 1.6 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.2 treys on 33.9 percent from the field. Smith's honeymoon period is over and his shots will go down now that the Cavs are healthy, so he's not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:55 pm
    • Andre Drummond goes for 11 & 16 in win
      Andre Drummond had 11 points, 16 rebounds, a steal and three blocks on 5-of-11 shooting in Saturday's win over the Rockets.

      Advice: With Dwight Howard out, Drummond and Greg Monroe had free reign in the paint. Of course, Drummond only hit 1-of-7 free throws, but has now racked up 15 or more boards in four straight home games. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:53 pm
    • DeAndre Jordan grabs 19 boards with 4 blocks
      DeAndre Jordan grabbed 19 boards on Saturday against the Spurs, adding eight points, one assist, one steal and four blocks in 31 minutes.

      Advice: The guy is just a stud, and he completely controlled the paint all game long. Jordan will continue to be among the league leaders in field goal percentage, blocks and rebounds for the rest of the season, so there's no reason to sell-high. If he ever improves his free throw shooting, his ceiling is going to be insane. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:50 pm
    • Kevin Martin plays well in start
      Kevin Martin had his first start of 2015 against the Cavs on Saturday during a 106-90 loss, scoring 14 points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He made just 6-of-19 from the field and he's really struggled from there since his return, making just 32.7 percent from the field in his three games back. He averaged 18.0 points, 4.0 boards, 2.3 assists and 1.7 treys. As long as he's healthy, he'll be worth starting in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:47 pm
    • Not so Smoove: Josh hits 3-of-11 shots
      Josh Smith came off the bench to hit just 3-of-11 shots for seven points, seven rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks in Saturday's loss to his former team.

      Advice: If you were going for the revenge-game angle, it backfired, but he at least put up some decent stats while being booed in Detroit. With Dwight Howard expected to miss the next month with a knee injury, Smith is going to be a big part of the Rockets' plans going forward, like it or not. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:30 pm
    • Lorenzo Brown plays 48 minutes, scores one
      Lorenzo Brown played 48 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday with six rebounds, nine assists and three turnovers.

      Advice: He's just the second player since 1986 to play 48 minutes in a regulation game and score one or less points (Dennis Rodman). Brown had his one chance to do something tonight, but he'll be back to a reserve role with Ricky Rubio (ankle) coming back on Monday. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:29 pm
    • Terrence Jones fizzles in loss to Pistons
      Terrence Jones disappeared on Saturday with three points and five rebounds on 1-of-5 shooting.

      Advice: He played just 19 minutes and picked up three fouls, so we're not overly concerned. However, after his long layoff, it's going to take him time to get back to form, and if Dwight Howard wasn't out for the next month with a knee injury, we wouldn't even tell you to own him. But given Howard's lengthy absence, there's a decent chance that Jones gets hot at some point in the next couple weeks. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:28 pm
    • James Harden plays well despite knee pain
      James Harden left Saturday's game with a sore knee, but returned to finish in a loss to Detroit with 26 points, seven rebounds, nine dimes, two steals, a block and two 3-pointers on 10-of-17 shooting.

      Advice: He's got a bruised knee and it doesn't sound serious, but owners should watch for news on him. The Rockets might use caution with Harden now that it looks like Dwight Howard will be out a month with his own knee injury. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:23 pm
    • D-Mo stays hot in Rockets loss to Pistons
      Donatas Motiejunas hit 10-of-13 shots for 21 points, four rebounds and three assists in Saturday's loss at Detroit.

      Advice: Dwight Howard is expected to miss a month with his knee injury, so D-Mo's not going anywhere. Some blocks, steals and more boards would have been nice, but at least he shot lights out. He racked up a career-high 26 points with 12 points and three 3-pointers on Friday night, so it's clear he's in the zone right now. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:20 pm
    • 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
      Yesterday, 9:10 pm
    • James Harden is dealing with a bruised knee
      James Harden is simply dealing with a bruised knee and will start the second half.

      Advice: This is excellent news for Harden and it appears that he has dodged a bullet. We will let you know how his knee holds up after the game. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 5:48 pm
    • James Harden (knee) leaves Saturday's game
      James Harden left Saturday's game with a knee injury and his return is questionable.

      Advice: He suffered the injury on a drive to the basket and immediately grasped his knee. Harden limped slowly to the locker room so we should be able to provide an update very soon. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 5:24 pm
    • Kevin Martin will start on Saturday vs. Cavs
      Kevin Martin will join the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Cavaliers.

      Advice: Coach Flip Saunders opted to move Gorgui Dieng to the bench, but there's no word as to whether or not this is a permanent move. Martin did close out the last two games for Minnesota, so it's not exactly surprising to see him in the starting lineup. As long as he can stay healthy, Martin is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 4:53 pm
    • 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
      Yesterday, 9:10 am
    • Green gets his first DNP of the season
      Gerald Green got his first DNP-CD of the season on Friday against the Bulls.

      Advice: Green was not hurt and he also said it was surprising, but looking somewhat jovial on the bench compared to the usual display of unhappiness when benched it was curious to say the least. Jeff Hornacek said he could very well get tapped next game and it wouldn't be surprising if he got a few extra looks. His body of work on the year suggests he should be owned in most formats. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 12:02 am
    • Curry goes for 32-7-6 with five threes
      Stephen Curry scored 32 points on 10-of-22 shooting (5-of-11 3PTs, 7-of-9 FTs) with seven rebounds, six assists and three steals in Friday's loss to the Jazz.

      Advice: Curry has been a bit quiet lately and has seen himself fall behind Anthony Davis for the No. 2 slot (per game) behind James Harden in 8-cat leagues. Perhaps he's ready for his own Klay Thompson night in the near future. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:24 pm
    • LeBron plays through wrist injury on Friday
      LeBron James played through his right (shooting) wrist injury in the Cavs' 101-90 win over the Kings on Friday, scoring 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, seven assists, four steals, two blocks and six turnovers.

      Advice: James appeared to aggravate his wrist injury during a fall but he appears to be able to play through it so owners can cautiously expect this to pass. Timofey Mozgov added seven points, eight boards, one steal and three blocks in the win. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:18 pm
    • J.R. Smith posts solid line against Kings
      J.R. Smith scored 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including four threes) with three rebounds, five assists and four steals in Friday's easy win over the Kings.

      Advice: The Kings are terrible right now but regardless Smith earns a lot of goodwill with owners after this one. Iman Shumpert logged 22 minutes and didn't do much, as so far it looks like Smith will have some staying power. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:07 pm
    • Donats Motiejunas scores 26 points vs. Boston
      Donatas Motiejunas made 11-of-16 from the field for a career-high 26 points against the Celtics on Friday during a 93-87 win, adding 12 rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He had a productive 16-point game on Wednesday and the loss of Dwight Howard seems like it'll help out D-Mo quite a bit. Motiejunas is more than capable of playing center for the Rockets and the team is really going to push the pace now that they'll have smaller lineups, so he's going to be worth owning in standard leagues for now. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:39 pm
    • Josh Smith has a productive game
      Josh Smith was effective against the Celtics on Friday with 15 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

      Advice: He's played terrific in his past two games and the Rockets will need to go small with Dwight Howard (knee) out indefinitely. Smith seems to have a great rhythm in the offense right now, but we all know he's going to slow down and miss shots. If you want to give him a look and grab him, go for it. For what it's worth, we like Terrence Jones more in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:36 pm
    • Terrence Jones plays 20 minutes
      Terrence Jones played 20 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with seven points, two boards and three blocks.

      Advice: He played 21 minutes on Wednesday and the Rockets are going to keep his minutes in check for a bit. Jones has a huge upside and the Rockets are going to need him to play him more with Dwight Howard (knee) out indefinitely, so more minutes are on the way. Jones is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:32 pm
    • 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
      Friday, 7:06 pm
    • Damian Lillard revenge tour falls short
      Damian Lillard made 6-of-20 from the field for 13 points with six rebounds, 11 assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer against the Hawks on Friday.

      Advice: It was the classic case of him trying to do too much and he's struggled in both of his matchups vs. the Hawks this season. Lillard did match his season high in assists, but this was his just his second game of the year without a free throw attempt. Coach Terry Stotts said he was not happy about Lillard not making the All-Star Team. His usage was plenty high, so expect a big game in a better matchup against the Bucks on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 6:48 pm
    • Lorenzo Brown plays 23 minutes
      Lorenzo Brown played 23 minutes off the bench against the 76ers on Friday with two rebounds, three assists and two steals.

      Advice: With Zach LaVine going down due to an ankle injury, Brown had a chance for a revenge game against his 2013-14 team. Although, LaVine did return and Mo Williams could be back for Saturday, so there's little reason to add him. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 6:30 pm
    • Kevin Martin stays busy, makes 5-of-18 shots
      Kevin Martin played 30 minutes off the bench against the 76ers on Friday, making 5-of-18 from the field for 19 points with two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: While he did come off the bench, Martin closed out the game in each of his last two outings. He was highly involved in the offense, but the rust is there based on this game and his 7-of-18 from Wednesday. As long as he's active, he's worth starting in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 6:29 pm
    • Andrew Wiggins turns it on late
      Andrew Wiggins scored 15 points on 7-of-17 from the field against the 76ers on Friday with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover in 36 minutes.

      Advice: That's two quiet games in a row with Kevin Martin back in the lineup. Wiggins only had 12 points in 40 minutes on Wednesday and wasn't quite as aggressive. He's probably not going to be the caliber of player he was to start 2015, but Wiggins should still be a lot better than this recent two-game cold spell. Try to buy low if his owner is worried. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 6:27 pm
    • LeBron James (wrist) will play vs. Kings
      LeBron James (wrist) will play against the Kings on Friday.

      Advice: Well, most DFS owners can change their plans now. James usually doesn't play limited minutes, so his fantasy owners can plug him back in. If you were expecting Kyrie Irving to have another 55-point game, it's a little less likely now. J.R. Smith also takes a hit here. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 3:47 pm
    • Mike Conley (wrist) probable for Saturday
      Mike Conley (wrist) is probable to play against the Thunder on Saturday.

      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
      Friday, 3:44 pm
    • Kevin Martin coming off bench again
      Kevin Martin will come off the bench against the 76ers on Friday.

      Advice: He had a terrific second half in his return on Wednesday, finishing with 21 points, four rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes. In fact, Martin had a 34.6 usage rate in that game, so expect him to be busy while he's out there. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 3:10 pm
    • LeBron James (wrist) a game-time decision Fri
      LeBron James (wrist) will be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Kings.

      Advice: LeBron is going to go through a pregame evaluation, which could change things, but he is still considered doubtful for tonight's game. If James sits, Shawn Marion will likely draw another start at SF, but the main beneficiaries of his absence will be Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving. J.R. Smith will also have some more opportunities to create on offense. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 2:52 pm
    • Damian Lillard discusses being snubbed
      Damian Lillard discussed not being selected to the All-Star Team on Friday and said he wanted to "thank the coaches who feel I wasn't good enough, the fans that didn't think I was good enough, and Adam Silver also for not thinking I was good enough."

      Advice: "It ain't always gone be peaches and cream but somebody has to pay for the reason it's not," Lillard added. Apparently, the league is on notice and it'll start tonight against the red-hot Atlanta Hawks tonight at 7:30 EST. The Blazers have the fourth best record in the NBA, Lillard is 12th in the NBA in scoring and Lillard hasn't missed a game in his career. More importantly for his fantasy owners, he's a top-10 player in standard leagues this season. If you don't have NBA League Pass, tonight might be a reason to reconsider. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 12:18 pm
    • Mike Conley (wrist) status uncertain for Sat.
      Head coach Dave Joerger said Mike Conley's status for Saturday's game vs. OKC is still unknown at this point.

      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. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 10:13 am
    • Damian Lillard not happy with All-Star snub
      Damian Lillard said that he is "definitely" taking the All-Star snub personally.

      Advice: Lillard still has a chance to make it into the game as Kobe Bryant's replacement, but DeMarcus Cousins may have something to say about that. Regardless, owners of Lillard can expect him to take out his aggressions against the Atlanta Hawks tonight, and he is certainly someone to target in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:07 am
    • LeBron James (wrist) doubtful for Friday
      LeBron James (wrist) was a limited participant during shootaround, and he remains doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

      Advice: James has been taking more time off than usual this season, and that has to be frustrating to owners who burned a No. 1 or 2 overall selection on him on draft day. If James sits, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love will be the primary beneficiaries, with J.R. Smith also seeing some increased opportunities on offense. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 8:19 am
    • Zach Randolph has 11th straight double-double
      Zach Randolph logged his 11th consecutive double-double against the Nuggets in a 99-69 win on Thursday with 15 points, 17 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover.

      Advice: He also had a career-high 17 consecutive double-digit boards with tonight's win. Randolph's stats in 2015 were already extremely impressive before this game, averaging 19.6 points, 13.1 boards, 2.8 assists and 0.5 blocks on 59.2 percent from the field. What's more, Z-Bo is making an unsustainable 51.9 percent on his mid-range shots in 2015. He's a sell-high player, but his fantasy owners can certainly just enjoy the ride if they want to.

    • John Henson scores 12 points with 11 rebounds
      John Henson started against the Magic on Thursday during a 115-100 win, scoring 12 points with 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 24 minutes.

      Advice: He looked great in the starting unit and there might be a position battle should Zaza Pachulia (calf) miss time. Henson does have some eye-catching upside for his ability to block shots, so fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on him. Unless you don't care about foul shooting, it's probably best to see what happens his next time out before grabbing him. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:29 pm
    • Jared Dudley scores 17 points in start
      Jared Dudley moved into the starting lineup for Ersan Ilyasova on Thursday, scoring 17 points with four rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

      Advice: The Bucks were rolling on offense with 12 triples tonight. Dudley was really cooling off before tonight, but the loss of Ilyasova should open up some playing time for Dudley. With Ghostface Ilya only day-to-day, Dudley is more of a stop-gap add for now. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:13 pm
    • Mike Conley (wrist) out again on Thursday
      Mike Conley (wrist) will not play against the Nuggets on Thursday night.

      Advice: This will be his second game out of the lineup due to his wrist injury. The 2015 part of the season has not been nice to Conley with two ankle sprains and this current issue costing him time. There's no indication that this issue will linger on, so he can be considered as a buy-low candidate. Beno Udrih is a nice option in DFS tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 4:28 pm
    • Mike Conley (wrist) game-time decision Thurs.
      Mike Conley (wrist) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

      Advice: Conley dressed for Tuesday's game against Dallas, but he did not leave the bench, and it's looking like we're not going to get an official update on Conley's status until just before the tip. If he does indeed spend another game on the sidelines, Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes would split minutes at point guard. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 3:49 pm
    • John Henson will start at center Thursday
      John Henson will replace Zaza Pachulia (calf) in the starting lineup for Thursday's game vs. Orlando.

      Advice: Henson offers a lot of upside, and with a favorable matchup against the Magic, he's looking like a fine plug-and-play in daily leagues. It's going to be hard for head coach Jason Kidd to limit Henson's minutes tonight with Ersan Ilyasova, and Zaza unavailable. Kenyon Martin could also pick up some extended minutes tonight as one of the few healthy big men left on the roster, although he's unlikely to contribute much to the stat sheet. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 3:03 pm
    • Jared Dudley will start at PF on Thursday
      Jared Dudley will start at power forward for Thursday's game against Orlando with Ersan Ilyasova (groin) unavailable.

      Advice: Dudley is more of a 3-point specialist, but he could see an uptick in value with the move to the starting lineup and a favorable matchup against the Magic. He's worth a dice roll for those playing daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 2:54 pm
    • Kerr says no plans to rest Stephen Curry
      Steve Kerr said he has no plans of resting Stephen Curry.

      Advice: Why would he? Curry has played 78 games the past two seasons, and aside from the injury-plagued disaster of the 2011-12 season, Steph has managed to stay very healthy throughout his career. He's currently averaging 22.8 points, 8.2 assists, and a career-high 4.7 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game on 49.1 percent shooting. He's in the MVP conversation, and there's no reason to think he'll slow down. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 1:07 pm
    • Dion Waiters misses Thursday practice
      Dion Waiters (ankle) missed Thursday's practice.

      Advice: Waiters is dealing with a sore ankle, but the injury is not believed to be serious. The Thunder don't play again until Saturday so Waiters has plenty of time to rest, but Reggie Jackson would be in for a big boost in playing time if Waiters (and potentially Kevin Durant) is unable to play against the Grizzlies on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 10:48 am
    • Mike Conley questionable for Thursday
      Mike Conley (wrist) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.

      Advice: Conley almost crashed Twitter with daily players searching for a status update Tuesday night and it looks like we're destined for a repeat on Thursday. We'll update his status as soon as more information become available, but owners should be ready to fire up Beno Udrih and Nick Calathes if Conley unable to suit up. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 10:18 am
    • LeBron James shines spotlight on Kyrie
      LeBron James (wrist) declined comment to reporters after Wednesday's win in order to let Kyrie Irving have the spotlight following his 55-point game.

      Advice: "I'm going to kindly decline to talk to you guys," James said after the game. "This is his night." James sat out Wednesday's game due to a sore wrist, so we'll have to await word on the extent of his injury. He'll have some time to recuperate since the Cavs don't play until Friday, but J.R. Smith would be the biggest fantasy beneficiary (outside of Kyrie Irving) if James sits again. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 7:00 am
    • Kevin Martin returned to action on Wednesday January 28. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:41 pm
    • Al Horford still shooting lights-out for ATL
      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. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:54 pm
    • Kawhi Leonard sits in the fourth
      Kawhi Leonard played just 23 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday with nine points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one turnover.

      Advice: Coach Gregg Popovich said he wanted to roll with Cory Joseph down the stretch and kept Leonard on the bench because of it. Kawhi was filling it up before tonight in his games since returning from injury, averaging 16.5 points, 10.0 boards, 2.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.3 triples in 31.3 minutes per game. If you can try to buy low from one game, go for it. Kawhi is a stud. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:13 pm
    • Dion Waiters scores eight points in loss
      Dion Waiters hit just 3-of-10 shots for eight points and one rebound in Wednesday's loss to the Knicks.

      Advice: He's now scored exactly eight points in three of his last five games and is averaging 9.6 points, 1.2 steals and 0.8 3-pointers on 33 percent shooting over his last five games. And given that Kevin Durant sat out the last couple games with a toe injury, it doesn't look like Waiters belongs in starting fantasy lineups right now. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:01 pm
    • Lorenzo Brown plays 24 minutes
      Lorenzo Brown played 24 minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday with 10 points, one rebound, three assists and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: Not bad. Brown is only on a 10-day deal and chances are he's going to be off the team once Ricky Rubio (ankle) is ready to go. That is likely to be within the current 10-day deal, so Brown doesn't have a very good outlook next month. He's worth a look in deep leagues for a couple games, though. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:48 pm
    • Kevin Martin scores 21 points in return
      Kevin Martin returned from a wrist injury on Wednesday against the Celtics, scoring 21 points with four rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

      Advice: He was better than expected and really turned it on after a slow start tonight. Martin was on fire before his injury with a 37-point game in his last outing and a 34-point one before that, so he should be owned in all leagues following this game. Although, his fantasy owners should consider selling high once he solidifies his value. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:35 pm
    • Josh Smith does it all without Dwight Howard
      Josh Smith racked up 18 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal, three blocks and four 3-pointers on 7-of-13 shooting in Wednesday's win over the Mavs.

      Advice: As an added bonus, he didn't attempt any free throws, which means he didn't hurt you there. Normally, we'd say it's time to hit the phones and deal Smith before he comes down to earth, but with Dwight Howard no iffy going forward with edema in his right knee (fluid buildup), Smith could be ready to go on a nice run. Just don't expect him to be this good on most nights. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:29 pm
    • Terrence Jones goes for 10 & 5 in return
      Terrence Jones finally returned from his leg injury on Wednesday and had 10 points, five rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes.

      Advice: He hit 4-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer, and while we've not been high on him, the news of Dwight Howard's edema in his right knee changes things. Jones could see some serious run if Howard is going to miss time, so we now like the idea of taking a flier on him. He could be forced into heavy action for an extended period of time if Howard is going to be shelved. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:26 pm
    • Donatas Motiejunas scores 16 w/o Dwight
      Donatas Motiejunas started and had 16 points, five rebounds, a steals and two 3-pointers on 6-of-16 shooting in Wednesday's win over Dallas.

      Advice: Dwight Howard has edema in his right knee (fluid buildup) and could miss time, meaning that D-Mo, Josh Smith and Terrence Jones (he's back) should all be owned until we find out more details about Howard's return date. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:24 pm
    • Andre Drummond struggles in loss to Sixers
      Andre Drummond had anything but a huge night against the hapless Sixers on Wednesday, finishing with just six points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block in an ugly loss.

      Advice: Drummond picked up four fouls and the Pistons were never really in this game. Greg Monroe was better with 20 points and 11 boards, but he didn't have any blocks in the loss. Philly opened up a big first-quarter league and never looked back, and we'll blame this one on the Pistons playing their fourth game in five nights. They were, as the saying goes, plumb tuckered out. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:53 pm
    • J.R. Smith quiet in win over Blazers
      J.R. Smith hit just 5-of-12 shots and 1-of-6 3-pointers for 11 points, four assists and a steal in Wednesday's win.

      Advice: The key is that he played 38 minutes and if that trend continues, it's just a matter of time before he puts up a monster line. And it's especially likely to happen if LeBron James keeps missing games with a wrist injury. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 7:38 pm
    • LeBron James out Wednesday, doubtful Friday
      LeBron James (wrist) is considered doubtful to play against the Kings on Friday.

      Advice: It's weird day to see LeBron James and Kevin Durant out on he same night. James has been extremely durable before this season, but he's had knee and back issues before this injury. The Cavs are on a back-to-back this weekend, so James should be considered questionable for Saturday in Minnesota. Expect to see more of J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Mike Miller and Shawn Marion with Smith as the only reliable option. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:50 pm
    • Kevin Martin (wrist) to come off the bench
      Kevin Martin (wrist) will come off the bench on Wednesday against the Celtics.

      Advice: It will be his first game back since November and he might see some limited playing time. Martin will likely bump Andrew Wiggins over to small forward, which may cut minutes Thaddeus Young,, Gorgui Dieng and Nikola Pekovic. Martin should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:45 pm
    • LeBron James (wrist) ruled out Wednesday
      LeBron James (wrist) will not play vs. the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.

      Advice: He took a hard fall during Tuesday's game and was a game-time decision vs. Portland, but ultimately wasn't able to suit up. His absence means more shots for Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, and more playing time for J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert, Mike Miller and Shawn Marion. Consider LeBron questionable to return Friday vs. the Kings. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:35 pm
    • Terrence Jones (leg) finally returns vs. Mavs
      Terrence Jones (leg) will be active and available for the Rockets on Wednesday, though he'll be limited to 15-20 minutes.

      Advice: Houston will ease Jones into the mix after his lengthy rehab from a nerve issue which has kept him on the sidelines since Nov. 3. He may even start on Wednesday with Dwight Howard (ankle, knee) very unlikely to play. Josh Smith and Donatas Motiejunas complicate Jones' role when Houston is at full strength, but he has enough upside to be worth a stash if he's still floating on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:18 pm
    • Report: LeBron James is closer to doubtful
      LeBron James (wrist) appears to be closer to doubtful to play against the Blazers on Wednesday.

      Advice: There are multiple reports from the Blazers side of things that LeBron is unlikely, so we'll be looking for something from the Cavs soon. Again, nothing is official yet, but fantasy owners can plan on LeBron sitting this one out. J.R. Smith benefits the most while we should get more Mike Miller and Matthew Dellavedova. Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving will also have more chances to score. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:10 pm
    • LeBron James may be game-time w/ sore wrist
      LeBron James (sore wrist) is a game-time decision on Wednesday due to a hard fall he took during Tuesday's game.

      Advice: He continued playing after the injury on Tuesday and we're guessing he suits up vs. the visiting Trail Blazers, but coach David Blatt said the Cavaliers are "gauging [the injury] right up until game time." If he's forced to sit out, his minutes will be absorbed by a platoon including Mike Miller, Shawn Marion, Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 2:32 pm
    • Kevin Martin (questionable) expects to play
      Kevin Martin (wrist) is expected to make his return to the lineup against the Celtics on Wednesday.

      Advice: He's not a complete lock because the team will want to see how he performs in pre-game workouts, and he's technically questionable to play. Most signs do point to him playing despite an earlier report today. Martin has been doing a lot of non-contact work and missed some practice over the weekend. He's someone worth grabbing in standard leagues. Meanwhile, it should be interesting to see what happens with the other starters. Andrew Wiggins may slide to the small forward spot, which would bump Gorgui Dieng or Thaddeus Young from the starting unit. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:17 am
    • Minnesota have signed Lorenzo Brown
      Minnesota has signed guard Lorenzo Brown to a 10-day contract on Wednesday, and he is expected to be available to play against the Celtics.

      Advice: The uncertainty surrounding Ricky Rubio's (ankle) return and the latest injury to Mo Williams (hip) may have forced their hand, so Brown may end up seeing some action right out of the gate. There's no need to consider an add outside of ridiculously deep leagues just yet, but we will let you know if he pops up on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:43 am
    • Terrence Jones participates in shootaround
      Terrence Jones participated in shootaround, and he will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game vs. the Mavericks.

      Advice: Rockets coach Kevin McHale is a huge fan of Jones' game, but after missing nearly three months of action he will likely be eased into action upon his return. Jones is more than worth a flier in deeper leagues, but it will be interesting to see how coach McHale tweaks his crowded frontcourt rotation that includes Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith and Dwight Howard (ankle). Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:06 am
    • J.R. Smith scores just 5 points vs. Pistons
      J.R. Smith scored just five points on 2-of-11 shooting on Tuesday vs. Detroit, adding one board, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He is coming off four straight games of scoring 14 or more points, so his owners should give him a pass. The good news is that Smith looks like he will remain in the starting lineup, so as he long as sees more than 30 minutes a night he will be worth owning in most leagues. Just be sure to expect a couple of bumps along the way. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:26 pm
    • Zach Randolph catches fire, notches 22 & 10
      Zach Randolph finished Tuesday's game in Dallas with 22 points on 10-of-15 shooting with 10 rebounds, marking his 16th consecutive game with double-digit boards.

      Advice: Z-Bo had a quiet first half but he caught fire down the stretch, helping Memphis extend their lead in an impressive 109-90 road win vs. a division rival. His 16 games with 10+ rebounds is the longest streak in the NBA this season and he's simply on fire since returning from injury on Jan. 9. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:05 pm
    • Jared Dudley starts 2nd half w/ Ilyasova out
      Jared Dudley started the second half of Tuesday's game with Ersan Ilyasova (groin) unavailable, notching 11 points, one 3-pointer, two boards and three assists in 23 minutes.

      Advice: Dudley has been a sneaky value this season despite playing just 25 minutes, with his stats buoyed by solid percentages, 1.0 triples, 4.0 rebounds and 1.1 steals per game. He's worth owning, especially since Ilyasova is likely to miss more games with his groin injury. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 7:09 pm
    • Andre Drummond blocks a season-high six shots
      Andre Drummond had a season-high six blocks in a loss to the Cavaliers on Tuesday, adding 12 points and 17 boards.

      Advice: It wasn't all great for him, as he shot just 6-of-17 from the field and missed all four of his free throws. Drummond has now gone three games without making a single free throw, going 0-of-9 over that span. Having said that, his owners knew what they were getting into when they drafted him and they probably won't mind as long as keeps scoring, rebounding and blocking shots at a high level. His play should also improve as he develops some chemistry with D.J. Augustin, who has taken over as the starting point guard due to the loss of Brandon Jennings (Achilles) for the season. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 6:56 pm
    • 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
      Tuesday, 5:03 pm
    • Kevin Martin (wrist) will not play Wednesday
      Updating a previous report, Kevin Martin (wrist) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics.

      Advice: Martin was able to resume shooting workouts on Monday after having fluid drained from his surgically-repaired wrist last week, but he will remain sidelined for Wednesday's game. He's likely going to be eased back into the rotation upon his return, so owners will need to remain patient. However, he still offers enough upside to be worth holding onto in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 12:17 pm
    • Terrence Jones could play vs Mavs on Weds
      Rockets head coach Kevin McHale said there's a chance that Terrence Jones (leg) could play against the Mavericks on Wednesday.

      Advice: Jones was able to go through a full practice on Tuesday and it's looking like there's a chance the Jones will make his season debut on Wednesday against the Mavericks. He'll be battling for minutes with Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith upon his return, so his fantasy value is limited to deeper leagues at this point. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 10:49 am
    • 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
      Tuesday, 10:19 am
    • Terrence Jones questionable for Weds
      Terrence Jones (leg) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks.

      Advice: This comes as good news as this is the first change to Jones' status in months. Jones doesn't belong on standard league fantasy rosters as he'll likely be eased back into a crowded rotation alongside Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith, but he's worth a flier in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 9:38 am
    • Kevin Martin hopes to play vs BOS on Weds
      Kevin Martin returned to shooting workouts on Monday and is hopeful that he'll be able to play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

      Advice: This is the first time that Martin has been able to shoot since he had fluid drained from his surgicallyrepaired wrist nearly a week ago. "It feels better now than it did when I started practicing two weeks ago," said Martin, out since November. "Getting it drained helps a lot. I’ll give it one more hard day of practice and see how I feel." We'll update Martin's status after Wednesday's shootaround, but his eventual return will cut into the production of Mo Williams, Thaddeus Young, and Andrew Wiggins. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 9:10 am
    • J.R. Smith thriving with no nightlife in CLE
      J.R. Smith told David Aldridge of NBA.com that the lack of nightlife in Cleveland has helped him focus.

      Advice: Smith told Aldridge that the he's been able to focus on basketball in Cleveland since there aren't as many distractions as New York City. "I think this is the best situation for me, 'cause there's nothing but basketball," Smith said. "There's nothing you expect but basketball. There's nothing, there's no going out, there's no late nights." Smith is averaging 15.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.4 steals, and 3.8 treys in his last 10 games and deserves to be owned in all standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:34 am
    • Timberwolves set to sign Lorenzo Brown
      The Minnesota Timberwolves are close to signing Lorenzo Brown to a 10-day contract, according to Keith Langlois of Pistons.com.

      Advice: The Timberwolves originally drafted Brown and are close to brining the 24-year-old back into the fold. Brown has yet to play above the D-League this season, so he can be left on waiver wires as he won't provide much fantasy value as a bench player. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:27 am
    • Mike Conley suffers a sprained left wrist
      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
      Monday, 9:05 pm
    • Waiters scores 10 points with five assists
      Dion Waiters scored 10 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 4-of-12 shots (including a three) with two rebounds, five assists and one steal in 25 minutes.

      Advice: Waiters hit just 1-of-4 free throws to cap off another inefficient line, which has been his calling card in the NBA so far. Owners can do better in standard 12-team formats. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:30 pm
    • Wiggins scores 23 points in loss to Thunder
      Andrew Wiggins scored 23 points on 7-of-14 shooting (9-of-12 FTs) with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in Monday's loss to the Thunder.

      Advice: Wiggins did not hit a three but he did just about everything else on the court tonight. He'll be looking at a potential lull when Ricky Rubio and Kevin Martin return, and owners will want to target him in buy low deals at that time. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:21 pm
    • Zach Randolph stays hot vs. Magic on Monday
      Zach Randolph dominated the Magic on Monday with 24 points, 10 rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block.

      Advice: He has nine consecutive double-doubles now and Memphis arena staff might have to re-do the in-the-paint area with how Z-Bo has been setting up shop down there. His last five games have been particularly strong, averaging 19.6 points, 13.4 boards and 0.6 blocks on 59.4 percent from the field. Randolph is going to flirt with 20-12 lines as long as he's healthy. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:20 pm
    • Blazers-Nets game postponed on Monday
      The Blazers vs. Nets game scheduled for Monday has been postponed due to inclement weather.

      Advice: With the impending blizzard impacting the New York and surrounding areas, the league is making this call early, and the affair will be rescheduled for April 6. The Kings-Nets game has been postponed, as well. Those in daily formats will want to avoid deploying players from any of those four teams. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:16 am
    • Al Horford absolutely on fire over last seven
      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. "I have a good rhythm right now." Since January came around, Horford is averaging 16.5 points, 7.3 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.3 blocks on 57.5 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 7:23 am
    • James Harden still on fire, scores 37 points
      James Harden ran roughshod over the Lakers' defense in Sunday's road win, scoring 37 points (12-of-20 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs) with four 3-pointers, eight boards, five assists, two steals and six turnovers.

      Advice: Harden is averaging 37.0 points over Houston's past four games and continues to lead the NBA in scoring at 27.3 points per game, well ahead of LeBron James (26.0), Kevin Durant (25.3), Anthony Davis (24.2), DeMarcus Cousins (24.2) and Carmelo Anthony (24.1). Just get comfortable and enjoy the fireworks. Rotoworld.com

    • Josh Smith solid in 25 minutes vs LAK defense
      Josh Smith chipped in across the board in an easy win vs. the Lakers, scoring 11 points with one 3-pointer, five rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and one turnover in 25 minutes vs. L.A.

      Advice: Smith has been nowhere near standard-league value since coming to Houston, especially when you factor in his ridiculous 36.7 percent FT shooting over the past month. Terrence Jones' eventual return is another threat to Smith, so don't let the occasional efficient performance lull you into wasting a roster spot on him. Rotoworld.com

    • Draymond Green scores 14 pts with nine boards
      Draymond Green scored 14 points with nine boards against the Celtics on Sunday, adding two assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He has easily been one of the most improved players in the NBA this season, and it's obvious that coach Steve Kerr admires his playing style. Green is in line for some serious money this summer, and there is no reason to think that he will slow down anytime soon. Green should be a top-30 asset the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 8:05 pm
    • Stephen Curry drops 22 pts with 11 assists
      Stephen Curry dropped 21 points on 6-of-16 shooting in a win over the Celtics on Sunday, adding 11 assists, four boards, two steals and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

      Advice: The Warriors have now won 19 straight games at home which is easily a franchise record, and Curry has been one of the main reasons why they have had so much success. Curry will likely remain a top-3 fantasy asset the rest of the way, and his hunt for the MVP award should only motivate him even more. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 7:47 pm
    • Matt Bonner plays just 16 minutes on Sunday
      Matt Bonner replaced Tiago Splitter in the starting lineup on Sunday vs. the Bucks, but played just 16 minutes and finished with five points, one board, one assist and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: The lineup change isn't permanent by any means, and it's well known that coach Gregg Popovich constantly tweaks his rotations depending on the matchup. Even if Bonner remains in the starting unit for another game or two, it's obvious that he is not a reliable asset in almost any league. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 7:25 pm
    • Andre Drummond scores 14 pts sans Jennings
      Andre Drummond made 7-of-11 shots in 27 minutes vs. Toronto on Sunday, finishing with 14 points, eight boards, one assist and one block.

      Advice: Drummond has scored 56.0 percent of his baskets off teammate assists, so the loss of Brandon Jennings can't be a good thing for his offense. It's something to keep an eye on going forward, though of course Drummond remains an elite fantasy center even if his scoring takes a small dip. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 7:18 pm
    • Kawhi Leonard tweaks ankle in win vs. Bucks
      Kawhi Leonard briefly left Sunday's game against the Bucks with a tweaked ankle, but returned shortly after to the tune of 19 points, 14 boards, two assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

      Advice: He was in the locker room for just a few minutes and didn't appear to be limited at all by his ankle. It's possible that he deals with some swelling in the coming days, but the Spurs are off until Wednesday so he should have plenty of time to recover. This is the kind of stat line that Leonard can put up on any given night, so it looks like he will continue to reward his patient owners for the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 7:01 pm
    • Gerald Green quiet in 20 minutes Sunday
      Gerald Green played 20 minutes vs. the Clippers on Sunday, shooting 2-of-9 from the field (2-of-6 from deep) to finish with six points, two assists and one block.

      Advice: He was rolling along in his last four games, averaging 14.8 points and 2.5 triples, but the bottom can fall out unexpected for Green thanks to Phoenix's stacked backcourt rotation. He's been a liability in 12-team leagues over the past month, so think twice before deploying him in the Suns' upcoming three-game week. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 6:53 pm
    • Spencer Hawes finally cracks double-digit pts
      Spencer Hawes finished Sunday's game with 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting, adding two 3-pointers and one rebound without any blocks in 16 minutes.

      Advice: This was Hawes' first double-digit scoring game in January. The Clippers lavished a four-year, $22.7 million deal on him this summer, but he's averaging just 17.0 minutes per game and remains a waiver-wire fixture as long as DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin are healthy. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 6:49 pm
    • John Henson injures ankle on Sunday vs. Spurs
      John Henson (ankle) left Sunday's game against the Spurs and did not return, finishing with four points, nine boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 17 minutes.

      Advice: The good news is that coach Jason Kidd said that Henson could have returned if he needed him too, so the injury is probably very minor. Henson's only averaging 15.6 minutes per game this season, but he has given the Bucks a solid rim protector in the absence of Larry Sanders. If Henson does end up missing time, Zaza Pachulia will have to play even more minutes with veteran Kenyon Martin getting into the mix as well. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 6:28 pm
    • John Henson leaves game with ankle injury
      John Henson left Sunday's game against the Spurs with an ankle injury and is questionable to return.

      Advice: The Bucks are already pretty thin in their frontcourt thanks to Larry Sanders, so hopefully it's not too serious. We will update Henson's status as soon as we know more, and we would expect Zaza Pachulia to play all the minutes he could handle if Henson were to miss any time. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 5:58 pm
    • 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
      Jan 25, 5:56 pm
    • Dion Waiters booed in his return to Cleveland
      Dion Waiters was booed during Sunday's game in Cleveland, as he came off OKC's bench to score 14 points with two 3-pointers, three boards, two assists and one steal in 33 minutes.

      Advice: "Boos, no boos, I can't focus on that type of stuff," Waiters said after the game. The playing time is nice to see, and he did enough to placate most fantasy owners, but inefficiency continues to plague him and he finished just 5-of-15 from the field in the loss to his former team. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 4:28 pm
    • Terrence Jones could return 'within a week'
      When head coach Kevin McHale was asked about Terrence Jones' availability for Wednesday's game vs. Dallas, he did not rule Jones out and said that he will return "sooner rather than later."

      Advice: McHale added that Jones could return "within a week," and it appears he is getting very close to playing basketball again. However, he will be fighting for minutes with Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith, so it will be very difficult for him to produce the same way he was at the beginning of the season. Still, he's worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 12:19 pm
    • Report: DET likely to call up Lorenzo Brown
      Detroit is reportedly strongly considering calling up Lorenzo Brown from their D-League affiliate.

      Advice: Brown would be fighting for reserve minutes with Spencer Dinwiddie, so he'd be unlikely to get enough playing time to matter in most leagues. Until he actually signs a contract, Brown can remain on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 25, 12:05 pm
    • Thomas Robinson back to a reserve role
      Thomas Robinson moved back to the bench on Saturday against the Wizards with two points and four boards.

      Advice: With LaMarcus Aldridge back, Robinson's playing time is going to be sporadic. He does have some nice impact on the offensive glass, but there's no need to grab him in almost any fantasy league while LMA is on the active list. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 24, 10:00 pm
    • Zach Randolph scores 17 with 14 boards
      Zach Randolph scored 17 points with 14 rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer against the 76ers during a 101-83 victory on Saturday.

      Advice: That's eight consecutive double-doubles for Z-Bo. In that span, he's averaged 18.8 points, 13.9 boards, 2.5 boards, 0.5 steals and 0.5 blocks. Considering his injury history, this is a sell-high opportunity. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 24, 8:57 pm
    • Andre Drummond has a bad game again
      Andre Drummond missed all four attempts from the foul line during a 101-86 loss to the Bucks on Saturday with 10 points, seven rebounds and one block.

      Advice: He was actually developing a nice rapport with Brandon Jennings, but he'll have to learn to play with D.J. Augustin more often. That could mean Drummond has to get his shot on his own more often, which suggests his field goal shooting goes south. He'll still be a must-start player and he may see an increase in usage rate. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 24, 7:30 pm
    • Kawhi goes for 15 and 14 vs. the Lakers
      Kawhi Leonard scored 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including a three) with 14 rebounds, three assists and two steals in the Spurs' 99-85 win over the Lakers on Friday.

      Advice: So far so good with regard to Leonard's hand and obviously if he's on the floor the production is going to be there. He's returning top 20-25 value on a per-game basis so far. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 24, 1:06 am
    • Wiggins slowing down as guys return to action
      Andrew Wiggins scored 13 points on 6-of-16 shooting (no threes) with two rebounds, one assist and one block over 38 minutes in the Wolves' 92-84 loss to the Pelicans on Friday.

      Advice: Wiggins could be staring at a rough month with Ricky Rubio and Kevin Martin returning, and then after that Shabazz Muhammad at some point. As that happens, integrating all of these players could easily gum things up for all of them. Still, the Wolves are going to slowly force him into a No. 1 role regardless of who is playing with him, and attrition will also be his ally in the second half of the year. It will be one massive buy low window and owners will want to take full advantage of it. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 24, 12:04 am
    • Overshadowed: James Harden hits game-winner
      James Harden hit a game-winning buzzer-beater against the Suns during Friday's 113-111 victory, finishing with 33 points, six rebounds, 10 assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: Just when you thought Harden was going to be the story of the night for a sick crossover to break P.J. Tucker's ankles before he buried a mid-range jumper, Klay Thompson happened. Anyway, Harden is still ridiculous on non-Klay terms over his last three, averaging 37.0 points, 3.7 boards, 7.7 assists, 3.0 steals and 4.3 treys on 51.9 percent from the field. Sadly, Harden won't get to play against Klay again this regular season. That's none of Klay's business, though. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 23, 10:42 pm
    • Donatas Motiejunas scores 15 points
      Donatas Motiejunas scored 15 points with six rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 23 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

      Advice: He shifted to the center spot with Dwight Howard (ankle) out and that'll continue. If Howard misses time, that should help D-Mo's numbers overall. He is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 23, 10:34 pm
    • Waiters scores just eight points on Friday
      Dion Waiters scored eight points off the bench on Friday, hitting 3-of-8 shots with one rebound, one assist, three steals and one block in 26 minutes.

      Advice: Waiters needs to have a lot of touches to overcome some of his fantasy limitations and that doesn't seem like a good bet for him. He's not a must-own player and is best suited for deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 23, 8:49 pm
    • J.R. Smith scores 21 points with seven treys
      J.R. Smith made seven 3-pointers for his 21 points against the Hornets on Friday with four rebounds and four assists.

      Advice: The treys were nice, but this was Smith's fifth game of 2015 with at least four dimes. He's really playing extremely well with his new team and he's taking eight treys per game. He'll cool off at some point, but owners in standard leagues can ride him while he's going strong. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 23, 8:08 pm
    • James Harden and Dwight Howard starting
      James Harden (knee) and Dwight Howard (knee) will start against the Suns on Friday.

      Advice: They were both probable and there was little doubt that these guys would miss the big road game. The Rockets didn't have Howard in their last matchup against the Suns, too. Harden could put up huge numbers tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 23, 5:49 pm
    • James Harden probable Friday w/ bruised knee
      James Harden (left knee contusion) is listed as probable for Friday's game in Phoenix.

      Advice: He scored 33 points in 32 minutes during Wednesday's loss to Golden State and we're guessing he'll be fine, but owners should stay tuned for pre-game updates. Harden hasn't missed a game all season and should have extra motivation after recently being snubbed as a starter for the All-Star game. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 23, 7:59 am
    • Damian Lillard scores 21 points in loss
      Damian Lillard made 8-of-23 from the field for 21 points during a 90-89 loss to the Celtics on Thursday, adding six rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: He's one of the best pull-up shooters in the NBA and chances are his catch-and-shoot shots are going down. Lillard averaged 6.6 field goal attempts per game off passes from Nicolas Batum (wrist) and LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) and catch-and-shoot attempts accounted for over 20.8 percent of his shot total. Fancy stats aside, Lillard is going to be busy and will have plenty of 30-point games on the way in the next 6-8 weeks. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 22, 11:38 pm
    • Truck Stick? Thomas Robinson plays 28 minutes
      Thomas Robinson started and played 28 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday with nine points, 12 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

      Advice: The Blazers were forced to play Dorell Wright and Victor Claver at small forward due to the loss of Nicolas Batum, so that might actually open up some minutes for Robinson at the four. That said, coach Terry Stotts used a whopping 12 different five-man lineups in just the second half tonight and ran an 11-man rotation, so we're still not too bullish on adding Truck in standard leagues, especially since he can't make free throws. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 22, 11:10 pm
    • DeAndre Jordan up to 72.9 percent from field
      DeAndre Jordan made all seven shots from the field for 14 points with 12 rebounds and two blocks in 26 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

      Advice: He's now up to 72.9 percent from the field on the season and he's done it without a single make outside of the paint. On the other hand, Jordan is now at 39.3 percent from the line this season. If that holds up, he would be the first player to ever shoot above 70 percent from the field and below 40 percent from the line (minimum of 40 free throw attempts). He's a beast. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 22, 10:57 pm
    • Jared Dudley turns it around vs. Jazz
      Jared Dudley scored 16 points with four rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

      Advice: He had a grand total of just two points combined in his last two games. Dudley has really cooled off since a somewhat hot start and he'll continue to be an inconsistent player. He'll likely be a top 120-150 guy the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 22, 9:09 pm
    • Kawhi Leonard cools off due to garbage time
      Kawhi Leonard scored a team-high 16 points against the Bulls on Thursday with four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

      Advice: He scored the Spurs' final 11 points of the first half, but was fairly quiet the rest of the game. Leonard has added a handful of new offensive moves and coach Gregg Popovich has held up his end of the bargain that he will run plays for the reigning Finals MVP. Leonard gets the Lakers at home on Friday night and could have a big game. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 22, 7:39 pm
    • Thomas Robinson starting on Thursday
      Thomas Robinson will start against the Celtics on Thursday.

      Advice: There is no such thing as a surprise Terry Stotts starting lineup. Robinson still is a little rough around the edges, but he could be a double-double guy with extra minutes. That said, the messy rotations are something most fantasy owners aren't going to want to deal with. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 22, 7:16 pm
    • Stephen Curry leads votes for All-Star Team
      Stephen Curry, Kobe Bryant, Blake Griffin, Anthony Davis and Marc Gasol were voted in as the starters for the Western Conference All-Star Team.

      Advice: Curry was the top vote getter and he deserves it with his team holding the best record in the NBA. Kobe Bryant is likely going to miss the All-Star game with his rotator cuff tear, so James Harden or Klay Thompson will likely replace him. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 22, 4:22 pm
    • Stephen Curry torches Rockets for win
      Stephen Curry hit 7-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers for 22 points, three rebounds, 10 assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Rockets.

      Advice: Patrick Beverley didn't slow him or Klay Thompson down tonight and Curry is going to start for the Western All-Stars, although that won't be official until later on Thursday. The Warriors have now won 17 straight games at home, which is a franchise record. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 21, 10:50 pm
    • Draymond Green fills stat sheet in win
      Draymond Green hit 7-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers for 18 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's impressive win over the Rockets.

      Advice: Green came in on a cold streak, but got it going again tonight. You knew it was only a matter of time and the "buy-low" window is closing quickly. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 21, 10:46 pm
    • Josh Smith ejected in Wednesday's loss
      Josh Smith lasted just 14 minutes and finished with five points before being ejected with two technical fouls in Wednesday's ugly loss to the Warriors.

      Advice: Smith thought he got fouled when he banged knees with a Warrior, and later tore into the referees. It kind of looked like he wanted to go home early in a blowout loss, as he continues to do "Josh Smith" kind of things, regardless of what uniform he's wearing. He's been a bit of a disaster with the Rockets and things aren't likely to get better once Terrence Jones finally returns from his leg injury. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 21, 10:38 pm
    • James Harden plays well in loss to Warriors
      James Harden hit 8-of-18 shots, three 3-pointers and 14-of-16 free throws on Wednesday, finishing with 33 points, four rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block.

      Advice: He's still in the MVP discussion, but the Rockets are going to have to improve their record for him to win it. They were crushed by the Warriors tonight, despite making a late comeback in garbage time. Rotoworld.com
      Jan 21, 10:35 pm
    • Donatas Motiejunas disappears in loss
      Donatas Motiejunas hit just 2-of-8 shots for four points, three rebounds and two assists in Wednesday's loss to the Warriors.

      Advice: That snapped a 12-game streak of double-digit scoring for D-Mo and he's been rebounding the ball well. He's still averaging 13.4 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.2 steals in January, and the Rockets just didn't have it going against the Dubs tonight. And once Terrence Jones finally returns, things could get a little dicey in regards to Motiejunas. Rotoworld.com
