    • Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play on Friday
      Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play on Friday night against the Clippers.

      Advice: He has a lower leg strain and the injuries just keep coming for Arthur. He's played well, but he's going to be tough to own in most leagues. Kenneth Faried and J.J. Hickson will pick up some playing time. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Watson (illness) is probable for Sat
      C.J. Watson (illness) is probable to play against the Nuggets on Saturday.

      Advice: He did not finish practice and has been ill since Wednesday. Watson should be fine, but his fantasy value is about to take a hit with George Hill almost ready to go. Rotoworld.com

    • Dec. 19: Ronny Turiaf Trade Day
      Ronny Turiaf has been traded to the 76ers and has been waived.

      Advice: He was traded earlier today in the Corey Brewer deal. Turiaf is out indefinitely right now, but may be picked up later in the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Tony Allen (eye) out Friday vs. Chicago
      Tony Allen (right corneal abrasion) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Bulls.

      Advice: Quincy Pondexter will likely draw the start, while Vince Carter will see extended minutes off the bench. Carter logged 41 minutes during his last outing with Allen sidelined, and put up 18 points with five 3-pointers, he does however have a difficult matchup against the Bulls, so Carter remains a risky option in daily leagues.

    • Francisco Garcia gets cut
      Rockets waive G/F Francisco Garcia.

      Advice: There were rumors circulating that the Rockets were trying to include Garcia in the Corey Brewer trade today and they had to release someone, so the move makes sense. He'll catch on somewhere else. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 3:23 pm
    • Ronny Turiaf off to the Rockets
      Ronny Turiaf (hip) has been traded to the Rockets.

      Advice: While Ronny the Rocket has a nice ring to it, he's not going to be on the court for a while. Turiaf is out indefinitely. The Rockets will also have to waive someone. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 11:45 am
    • Spencer Hawes (knee) out Friday vs. Denver
      Spencer Hawes (knee) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Denver.

      Advice: Hawes has been out of the lineup since Dec. 12, and he remains without an official timetable to return. As long as DeAndre Jordan is healthy, he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jameer Nelson not active Friday vs. MIN
      Jameer Nelson will not be active for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

      Advice: With Marcus Smart (Achilles) being listed as questionable, there's a chance that Evan Turner will draw the start in a favorable matchup vs. the Wolves. Turner has averaged 16.0 points, 3.5 assists, and 3.5 rebounds through two games with the starting unit this season, so he could work as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 10:38 am
    • Tony Allen (eye) questionable Friday vs. CHI
      Tony Allen (right corneal abrasion) is questionable to play Friday vs. the Bulls.

      Advice: If Allen is forced to sit, Quincy Pondexter would likely draw another start, but he doesn't do enough statistically to be considered an option in most leagues. While Allen averages 25.8 minutes per game, he's not a large part of the offense (6.5 FGAs per game) so his absence doesn't have too much of a statistical impact on the player replacing him.

    • Boston's new arrivals uncertain for Friday
      Jameer Nelson, Jae Crowder, and Brandan Wright did not arrive in time for shootaround, and their status for Friday's game vs. Minnesota is uncertain.

      Advice: With Marcus Smart (Achilles) being listed as questionable, and Jameer's status uncertain, Evan Turner could draw the start on Friday in a favorable matchup vs. the Timberwolves. Jae Crowder would likely play sparingly behind Jeff Green if available, so his status shouldn't matter in most leagues, while Brandan Wright's spot in the rotation is not clear at this point. Stay tuned for an official update closer to tip-off. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 10:06 am
    • Danny Granger (illness) expected to play Fri.
      Danny Granger (illness) went through shootaround and is expected to be available to play Friday vs. the Wizards.

      Advice: Granger is averaging just 4.0 points on 30.0 percent shooting from the field this season, so whether he plays or not should be of little concern to owners in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: Mavericks eyeing Emeka Okafor
      The Mavericks are reportedly interested in bringing in either Emeka Okafor or Jermaine O'Neal to help fill the void left by Brandan Wright.

      Advice: The Mavs no longer have a true center to help backup Tyson Chandler, so it makes sense that they would have interest in Okafor or O'Neal. O'Neal has stated that he will make a decision "after the holidays" as to whether he wishes to continue his NBA career, and Okafor is still recovering from a herniated disk in his neck. For now, Greg Smith and Charlie Villanueva will audition for the backup role, and it'll be interesting to watch Rick Carlisle's rotations develop over the coming days. Rotoworld.com

    • Marreese Speights has 10 points in 19 minutes
      Marreese Speights had 10 points in 19 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with five rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

      Advice: He has a very high usage rate and should be able to score in the teens while Andrew Bogut (knee) is out. Bogut could miss up to a month, so that means the Speights Cowboy is worth a grab in standard leagues. Some people call him Marreese. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:02 pm
    • Jared Dudley scores season-high 19 points
      Jared Dudley scored a season-high 19 points against the Kings on Thursday with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He had season highs in field goal attempts and free throw attempts in what was obviously his best game. Dudley has barely been shooting the rock while he's been out there and only had 0.8 triples per game in his previous eight games this month. This rotation is going to be a mess, so he's not a standard league target based on this game alone. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:26 pm
    • O.J. Mayo scores 19 points in a win
      O.J. Mayo scored 19 points in just 23 minutes against the Kings on Thursday with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He started out red hot with 17 of those 19 coming in the first quarter, but cooled off with some fouling issues. Surprisingly, Mayo's worst quarter this season has been the first and he's been able to exhibit some added effort on both ends. What's more, his fouling has been his biggest issue with at least five fouls in three of his last five. He's more of a player to track in standards, but a big game could change that. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:22 pm
    • Jerryd Bayless plays 29 minutes on Thursday
      Jerryd Bayless played 29 minutes against the Kings on Thursday with 17 points, four rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: O.J. Mayo battled some foul trouble, so Bayless picked up some of the slack. He's going to get minutes in the mid-20s while the Bucks try to figure out how to fill their minutes at the forward spots, so he might have some low-end value in standard leagues for the next couple weeks. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:18 pm
    • Johnny O'Bryant plays 17 minutes
      Johnny O'Bryant played 17 minutes in his first NBA start on Thursday with six points, one rebound and one assist against the Kings.

      Advice: He had four fouls and had several "Welcome to the NBA" moments tonight. O'Bryant is a banger and doesn't have much polish to his game, but the Bucks need someone like that right now. His minutes might climb into the 20s while Ersan Ilyasova (face) is out. He's not worth owning in almost any league, though. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:12 pm
    • Jason Thompson takes a backseat
      Jason Thompson played 19 minutes with three points, three boards and two turnovers against the Bucks on Thursday.

      Advice: He made 1-of-4 from the field and anyone who rode him in a deep league should be looking at other options. Thompson is not worth owning in even 20-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:54 pm
    • Johnny O'Bryant getting the start vs. Kings
      Johnny O'Bryant will start at power forward against the Kings.

      Advice: He made his NBA debut on Wednesday and he already making his first start. The Bucks are completely gutted up front and have nobody behind O'Bryant and Zaza Pachulia, so he could get big minutes. Of course, he's only worth a look in very deep leagues. O'Bryant joins Brandon Knight, O.J. Mayo, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Pachulia in the starting unit. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 6:01 pm
    • Jameer Nelson headed to Boston
      Jameer Nelson has been traded to the Celtics.

      Advice: He is having an awful year with the Mavericks and perhaps his zero-point game is what forced the team's hand to make a deal. Simply put, this might be the worst year of his career. He has a career low in assist percentage, usage rate, field goal percentage and points while just being roasted on the defensive end. Nelson is not part Boston's future, so there is little reason to add him. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:18 pm
    • Spencer Hawes downplays knee injury
      Spencer Hawes (knee) downplayed the seriousness of his injury to his left knee.

      Advice: There had been rumors of a more serious nature to Hawes' injury as he's still without a timetable, but Hawes downplayed those reports are greatly exaggerated. "I'm not out for the season," he told reporters on Wednesday. While Hawes may not be out for the season, he's not going to help fantasy owners much and can safely be left on the waiver wire.

    • C.J. Watson goes for 12 & 4 in start
      C.J. Watson had 12 points, four assists and five turnovers on 3-of-9 shooting in Wednesday's loss.

      Advice: CJW is likely going to continue to start until George Hill is ready to play again, so he's worth holding until we see Hill back on the floor after his knee injury. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:36 pm
    • Jerryd Bayless scores 10 in 22 minutes
      Jerryd Bayless scored 10 points with two rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 22 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: He played his first two seasons in Portland, but didn't get his revenge. Bayless is likely to see a slight increase in playing time, but he's not taking many threes and is posting a low usage, so it's hard to be too excited about grabbing him in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:14 pm
    • O.J. Mayo plays 36 minutes on Wednesday
      O.J. Mayo made 4-of-12 from the field for 12 points with one rebound, two assists, two steals, five fouls and three turnovers in 36 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

      Advice: It's the first time he's played 36 minutes in a non-overtime game in the past year and the Bucks losing Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) just before halftime probably had something to do with it. Mayo played 16 minutes in the first half, so the plan was probably to give him around 32 minutes. Conditioning hasn't been an issue for him and he's seen some minutes at small forward this season, so owners in standard leagues can keep him in mind. He's still not playing well enough to grab, though. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:07 pm
    • Johnny O'Bryant makes his debut
      Johnny O'Bryant played five minutes in his NBA debut with two points on Wednesday.

      Advice: The good news is he's made 100 percent from the field, but the bad news is he has 9.6 fouls per 48 minutes. O'Bryant has no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:54 pm
    • Jared Dudley scores three points in start
      Jared Dudley scored three points in 27 minutes during a start against the Blazers on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, five assists and one steal.

      Advice: He committed four fouls and wasn't as involved in the offense nearly as much. Dudley's usage rate is extremely low, so he's not going to be asked to score much. His assists are fairly high for a guy with his role, but it's still not enough to move the needle enough to grab him in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:51 pm
    • Jameer Nelson scoreless despite start, 26 min
      Jameer Nelson started and played 26 minutes, but missed all four of his shots and finished with zero points and zero assists in a win over the Pistons.

      Advice: Devin Harris had eight points, nine assists and two 3-pointers off the bench, and is clearly the better play right now. This could all be a moot point soon though, as ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting that the Mavs are in serious discussions with the Celtics in a deal that would send Rajon Rondo to Dallas for a package that would include C Brandan Wright. And if you think Nelson's hideous play this season has Mark Cuban trying to work out a deal for Rondo, you're probably right. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:28 pm
    • C.J. Watson will start against the Clippers
      C.J. Watson (illness) will start against the Clippers on Wednesday.

      Advice: He missed shootaround due to an illness, but it sounds like he's good to go based on the starting distinction. Watson has been inconsistent on the season, averaging 11.2 points, 4.4 assists and 1.2 triples in 25.0 minutes. He's worth owning in deeper leagues until George Hill (knee) is back. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 6:05 pm
    • Spencer Hawes without a timetable

    • Jared Dudley starting in place of Parker
      Jared Dudley will start in place of Jabari Parker on Wednesday.

      Advice: He replaced Jabari when the injury happened, so this move is not a surprise. Dudley also played 20 minutes in the second half on Monday, so he should see a nice increase in playing time. He's worth a look in standard leagues, but there's no need to be too aggressive. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 5:38 pm
    • Tony Allen (eye) will not play on Wednesday
      Tony Allen (eye) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

      Advice: He suffered a corneal abrasion to his right eye on Tuesday, and was forced from that game. There is no word as to how severe the issue is, but we will pass along updates as needed. The Grizzlies have yet to name who will start in his place, but Courtney Lee, Tayshaun Prince, and Vince Carter will also see their minutes increased. Rotoworld.com

    • Danny Granger (illness) questionable Wed
      Danny Granger (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz.

      Advice: If he can't go, Luol Deng will likely play all the minutes he can handle on Wednesday. However, even if Granger is activated, he is not a reliable option in almost any league at this stage of his career. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 2:52 pm
    • C.J. Watson (illness) is questionable vs. LAC
      C.J. Watson was not at shootaround and is questionable to face the Clippers on Wednesday due to a sinus infection.

      Advice: He has been playing around 30 minutes per night before taking garbage time into account, so the Pacers would have a big hole to fill. Donald Sloan would pick up some extra playing time while Rodney Stuckey's minutes would be extremely safe. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 12:19 pm
    • Tony Allen iffy for Wednesday w/ eye injury
      Tony Allen suffered a corneal abrasion in his right eye on Tuesday and is questionable to play on Wednesday against the Spurs.

      Advice: If Allen's out it's going to leave a big dent in the defensive scheme of Memphis, while Courtney Lee, Vince Carter and Tayshaun Prince would all see some extra minutes against the Spurs. Rotoworld.com

      Marreese Speights came off the bench for 18 points, eight rebounds and two blocks on 7-of-14 shooting in 26 minutes on Tuesday.

      Advice: With news that Andrew Bogut's knee injury might be more serious than we were initially led to believe, Picking up Speights might be a good idea. He usually gets just 19 minutes a game, but saw more than that tonight and could be a very effective fantasy player if Bogut is going to miss extended time. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:26 pm
    • Tony Allen goes leaves game after hard fall
      Tony Allen left Tuesday's game after a hard fall and is questionable to return.

      Advice: It will be interesting to see if he returns to the game and we will be sure to update his status as soon as we know more. If Allen were to miss time, Tayshaun Prince and Vince Carter will see a bump in their minutes, but still won't be worth picking up in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Danny Granger (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

    • Ronny Turiaf out for season after surgery
      Ronny Turiaf underwent arthroscopic hip surgery on Tuesday, and will not return this season.

    • Danny Granger misses Tuesday shootaround
      Danny Granger (illness) missed Tuesday's shootaround in advance of the Heat's game against the Nets Tuesday night.

      Advice: We'll consider Granger as questionable heading into Tuesday night's game against the Knicks as he deals with the illness that he affected quite a few Heat players. Granger has only hit four of 16 shots in his past three games and just isn't worth fantasy owners' attention right now. Rotoworld.com

    • Jerryd Bayless plays 26 minutes vs. Suns
      Jerryd Bayless had a nice game in his hometown vs. the Suns on Monday, scoring 11 points with four rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in a 96-94 win.

      Advice: He's played in at least 20 minutes with at least nine points in each of his last five, averaging 10.8 points, 3.4 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 triples. He should get a few minutes of extra playing time as the Bucks shift their wings up to the three and four spots. He's worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 10:59 pm
    • Jared Dudley plays 31 minutes as fill in
      Jared Dudley replaced Jabari Parker (knee) after his knee injury on Monday, finishing with 10 points, two rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: Coach Jason Kidd hasn't been playing Dudley too much with just 18.9 minutes per game on the season, but it's fair to think he'll get his playing time to around 26-28 minutes per game. He'll have a chance to make 1.5 treys per game, which puts him on the radar in standard leagues. Unless you hate the guy on the end of your bench, it's probably better to wait and see how things go on Wednesday against the Blazers. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 10:39 pm
    • Watson scores 12 points with four assists
      C.J. Watson scored 12 points on 3-of-3 shooting (6-of-7 FTs) with zero rebounds, four assists and two steals over 23 minutes in Monday's blowout win.

      Advice: Watson's line wouldn't have had as many holes if he played the full amount, but looking forward George Hill's eventual return will steal away his upside. Tonight's minutes will probably look pretty familiar when that happens though, so he could retain low-end value in 12-16 team leagues at that point. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 10:26 pm
    • Spencer Hawes out on Monday night
      Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play on Monday against the Pistons.

      Advice: Now that Jabari Parker has gone down to a serious looking knee injury, his outlook has actually improved tonight. We'll be monitoring this game closely and for what it's worth Mayo has nine points, four rebounds, four turnovers and one three in 20 minutes mid-way through the third quarter. Rotoworld.com

      Ronny Turiaf will undergo arthroscopic hip surgery on Tuesday, and there is currently no timetable available for his return.

    • Spencer Hawes gets good news after MRI
      Spencer Hawes had an MRI on Saturday and it revealed no structural damage.

      Advice: This is great news for the Clippers and coach Doc Rivers even said that Hawes could have played on Saturday if he needed him too. However, the Clippers are going to be cautious with him and they have not yet provided a timetable for his return. "I think it's still early," Hawes said. "We want to figure out exactly what the issue is and try to go forward from there." This is something that we will monitor very closely, and we will provide an update to his status as needed. If he misses any more time, Glen Davis and Hedo Turkoglu will receive a slight boost. Rotoworld.com

    • Darrell Arthur goes off against Houston
      Darrell Arthur went off against the Rockets during a 108-96 loss on Saturday, scoring a team-high 20 points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers.

      Advice: Just about every other big man was in foul trouble and Kenneth Faried (ankle) had an injury, so Arthur picked up some playing time. He doesn't usually get big minutes while the team is healthy, so he's only worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • O.J. Mayo scores six in 11 minutes
      O.J. Mayo scored six points against the Clippers on Saturday with one assist and two turnovers in 11 minutes.

      Advice: It's his second game in his last four with minutes under 14 and he's made just 40 percent from the field on the year, so it's going to be awfully tough to trust him. Mayo is going to need to string together about five games in a row for fantasy owners in most leagues to consider grabbing him. Rotoworld.com

      C.J. Watson had his best game of the season on Saturday with 23 points, one rebound, five assists and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He made just 37.1 percent from the field this season before tonight, but buried 8-of-11 in a losing effort. His minutes have been on the rise and he should be able to keep his minutes in the mid 20s even when George Hill gets back. He's worth a look for owners need treys. Rotoworld.com

      Spencer Hawes (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Bucks.

      Jameer Nelson played 28 minutes in his return to the lineup on Saturday against the Warriors, making 2-of-7 from the field for six points with four rebounds, five assists and one steal.

      Advice: He had some Kinesio tape on his shooting shoulder and maybe that was a factor today. Nelson is making just 38.1 percent from the from the field on the season while not doing much else, so he's not a fantasy option right now. Rotoworld.com

    • Johnny O'Bryant (knee) questionable Saturday
      Johnny O'Bryant (knee) is considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

      Advice: He likely won't be in the rotation upon his return and would need an injury to Zaza Pachulia or Larry Sanders before owners in deep leagues should pay him any attention. Leave him on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Jameer Nelson (shoulder) will play Saturday
      Jameer Nelson (shoulder) will play in Saturday's game vs. the Warriors.

      Advice: He doesn't have a favorable matchup considering he will have to go up against arguably the best point guard in the league, Stephen Curry, so owners should probably look elsewhere for production. Devin Harris and J.J. Barea's value takes a hit with this news. Rotoworld.com

    • Spencer Hawes (knee) doubtful for Saturday
      Spencer Hawes (knee) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game against the Bucks.

      Advice: X-Rays were negative but the Clippers are likely going to be caution with him until he is close to 100 percent. Glen Davis and Hedo Turkoglu will both see extra minutes if Hawes sits, but not enough to matter in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jameer Nelson (shoulder) is a game-time call
      Jameer Nelson (shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Saturdays' game vs. the Warriors.

      Advice: Coach Rick Carlisle said he was more optimistic about Nelson playing than he was about Chandler Parsons (back), so it will be interesting to see if he will give it a go. Nelson isn't a reliable option due to Dallas' crowded backcourt, but Devin Harris would be worth a plug-and-play if Nelson sits while J.J. Barea will also get more minutes. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Francisco Garcia (ankle) is out on Saturday
      Francisco Garcia (ankle) will not play in Saturday's game vs. the Nuggets.

      Advice: He is still not practicing and it is looking like this won't be the last game he misses due to his ankle. Even if he was healthy, he doesn't have a large enough role to warrant consideration in most leagues. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Jameer Nelson (shoulder) questionable for Sat
      Jameer Nelson (shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Warriors.

      Advice: He has already missed Wednesday's game, and it wouldn't be a bad idea for Dallas to rest the veteran until he gets healthy. Nelson has battled a variety of ailments this season, and he has really struggled with the first unit this season. If he sits, expect Devin Harris to draw the start while J.J. Barea would also get more run. Harris is worth a look for short-term value or as a daily plug-and-play. Rotoworld.com

    • Watson posts solid line in start at the point
      C.J. Watson started at point guard in Friday's loss, scoring 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes.

      Advice: Watson has been knocking off the rust for the most part since returning to action but this is a nice look for him. He's worth a hard look for a chance at solid late-round value while George Hill is out. Rotoworld.com

    • X-rays negative on Spencer Hawes
      X-rays were negative on Spencer Hawes' left leg and he will be re-evaluated on Saturday.

      Advice: He twisted his knee badly and the Clippers are likely going to give him an MRI. Hawes was ruled out quickly and is likely going to miss time. Glen Davis and Hedo Turkoglu will get more run, but are not options in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Spencer Hawes (bruised knee) out for game
      Spencer Hawes suffered a bruised left knee on Friday and will not return.

      Advice: The severity is not yet known and he is getting X-rays. Hawes was playing well in his 17.5 minutes per game on the season and now the Clippers will likely lean on Glen Davis a bit more. Matt Barnes could get minutes at stretch four on occasion. Hawes finished with one point and one block in six minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Watson will start on Friday vs. Toronto
      C.J. Watson will enter the starting lineup on Friday, with Rodney Stuckey shifting over to SG, and Solomon Hill headed to the bench.

      Advice: Watson will be tasked with running the Pacers' offense, but he's a risky play in daily leagues due to his hit-or-miss nature. Stuckey could benefit by moving to his natural position of shooting guard, and he has a decent matchup vs. the Raptors tonight. Watson is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues, as George Hill is still not close to making a return. Rotoworld.com

    • Francisco Garcia (ankle) still out for ROX
      Francisco Garcia (ankle) will not play against the Nuggets on Saturday.

      Advice: He is not practicing yet and looks like he'll miss more games. Garcia is not worth owning in almost any league now that the Rockets are getting some players back. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:18 am
    • Johnny O'Bryant does more work at practice
      Johnny O'Bryant (knee) did some more work at practice on Friday.

      Advice: He doesn't have a timetable to return and is up in the air for Saturday. The Bucks need a big man behind Larry Sanders and Zaza Pachulia, so O'Bryant has an outside shot at playing time. Of course, he's not worth owning in any league. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 11:13 am
    • Jameer Nelson (shoudler) is questionable
      Jameer Nelson (shoulder) is questionable to face the Warriors on Saturday.

      Advice: He did not play on Wednesday and he certainly has a chance to miss this one. Devin Harris stepped up off the bench and is worth a look for short-term value. Nelson is not worth owning in most leagues right now. Rotoworld.com

    • Jason Thompson double-doubles vs. HOU
      Jason Thompson grabbed a season-high 15 rebounds against the Rockets on Thursday with 13 points, one assist and one steal.

      Advice: He's had at least eight boards in his each of his last five, averaging 11.0 points, 10.2 boards, 0.4 steals and 0.2 blocks on 48.6 percent from the field in 33.8 minutes in that stretch. Thompson isn't going to be great in standard leagues because of his lack of defense, but owners in points leagues can give him a look until DeMarcus Cousins comes back. Rotoworld.com

    • Francisco Garcia still not ready to play
      Francisco Garcia (ankle) will not play against the Kings on Thursday.

      Advice: He has been out since Dec. 6 and could miss additional time. Garcia has been hurt a lot in his career, so the Rockets are not going to rush him back. He is not worth owning in almost any league. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 6:39 pm
    • Johnny O'Bryant (knee) returns to practice
      Johnny O'Bryant (knee) returned to practice on Thursday, and is nearing a return.

      Advice: O'Bryant isn't likely to be a key rotation player for the Bucks, and he can be left on the wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo Speights plays well sans Andrew Bogut
      Mo Speights came off the bench for 15 points, eight rebounds and a block in 20 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: Festus Ezeli started at center and had seven points and three rebounds, but any time Andrew Bogut (knee) is out, Speights is the guy you'll want to plug-and-play. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Watson goes for 8 & 7 in 28 minutes
      C.J. Watson hit just 1-of-7 shots for eight points, seven assists and two steals in 28 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: He came off the bench, but given how poorly some of the Pacer starters have played lately, it's not out of the question that CJW is starting soon. He'll take a hit once George Hill is back, and has been pretty inconsistent thus far, but after the Pacer starters were benched tonight, things could be changing in Indy. Rotoworld.com

    • Jameer Nelson (shoulder) will not play vs. NO
      Jameer Nelson will not play against the Pelicans on Wednesday due to a right shoulder injury.

      Advice: The injuries are really piling up for Jameer and the severity is not yet known. Nelson could miss more time and wasn't great to begin for his patient fantasy owners, so there's little incentive to keep him despite a big game on Tuesday. Devin Harris is worth a look tonight.

    • Francisco Garcia ruled out for Wednesday
      Francisco Garcia (ankle) will not play on Wednesday.

      Advice: He was questionable earlier today, but shootaround must not have went well. Garcia would have picked up some playing time because of all the injuries, but he could miss Thursday as well. Rotoworld.com

    • Francisco Garcia (ankle) questionable on Wed
      Francisco Garcia (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Warriors

      Advice: The Rockets are severely depleted, and could use all the bodies that they can muster against the talented Warriors. Garcia could emerge as a deep league asset over the short-term due to increased opportunity, but owners in standard leagues can do better. if he sits this one out, expect Trevor Ariza to play big minutes down the stretch.

    • Jerryd Bayless solid in 20 minutes vs. OKC
      Bucks guard Jerryd Bayless played one of his most complete games of the season on Tuesday, scoring 11 points with six assists and two steals in just 20 minutes of action.

      Advice: He's had a few solid games this year, including last Friday's 12-point, five-assist, two-steal performance, but his limited 3-point range and sporadic production spoil any fantasy value. Jared Dudley chipped in eight points on Tuesday while reserves Khris Middleton and Zaza Pachulia each scored seven, and the Bucks continue to have one of the league's most productive benches.

    • Thompson just misses double-double
      Jason Thompson just missed a double-double with 10 points, nine rebounds and three assists over 36 minutes in Monday's win over the Jazz.

      Advice: Thompson did not record a steal or block and he's going to be raw in the fantasy sense even if he gets a boatload of minutes. With DeMarcus Cousins looking at weeks and maybe even months before he returns at full speed, there is a big window to plod his way into standard league value. Rotoworld.com

    • Speights goes for 12 and seven in 21 minutes
      Marreese Speights scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting with seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 21 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Wolves.

      Advice: If you've been riding Speights this keeps him on your good side before David Lee eventually returns to dent his value. Rotoworld.com
