  • Young posts low-end line in loss to Wolves
    Nick Young hit 6-of-12 shots (including a three) for 16 points, one rebound and one assist in 26 minutes off the bench on Friday.

    Advice: Young has turned the ball over just three times in six games and that has kept him in the top-160 in 9-cat leagues since his return, but in 8-cat leagues he hasn't been worth owning. If he can't dominate the No. 2 scoring role next to Kobe, and that was the case tonight, he won't be worth owning in 12-14 team formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Kaman has season-best 16 & 11 in loss
    Chris Kaman tied a season-high with 16 points and set a season-best with 11 rebounds in Friday's loss.

    Advice: Kaman chipped in with two blocks and he's a viable plug-in at center in 12-team formats. Just know his limited role can increase volatility and he has no upside. Rotoworld.com

  • Copeland plays 15 minutes with West back
    Chris Copeland played 15 minutes on Friday and scored five points with one three, two boards and two assists.

    Advice: Copeland had tenuous value at best in a big-minute role and in a pure backup role he's waiver wire fodder. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 12:12 am
  • Watson goes for nine and four in return game
    C.J. Watson (foot) made his season debut in Friday's win, scoring nine points on 4-of-4 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, four assists and one steal in 18 minutes.

    Advice: The Pacers haven't been afraid to play Rodney Stuckey big minutes despite his multiple injuries so maybe there is some hope for Watson, but it's definitely a wait-and-see moment for owners in most formats. Donald Sloan (six points, nine rebounds, six assists) has the ball in his court as far as point guard minutes go in Indy. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 12:10 am
  • Frye posts nice line in loss to the Pacers
    Channing Frye bounced back from a two-point outing to score nine points on 3-of-7 shooting (3-of-6 3PTs) with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in Friday's loss to the Pacers.

    Advice: Frye is a top-100 value and that makes him a must-own player in most formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Cory Joseph (ankle) returns to action
    Cory Joseph (ankle) returned to action on Friday, scoring three points on 1-of-3 shooting with two rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes.

    Advice: Unless you're in a 20-team league you can ignore Joseph's return. Rotoworld.com

  • Calderon flops in blowout loss to Thunder
    Jose Calderon hit just 1-of-5 shots for three points, one rebound and one assist over 23 minutes in Friday's blowout loss to the Thunder.

    Advice: Calderon is coming off of a massive game on Wednesday and this type of stuff happens to really bad teams. There's no way he should hit the wire as he is well-positioned to be a mid-round guy going forward. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • Smith continues to struggle in loss to OKC
    J.R. Smith hit just 1-of-9 shots (no threes) with two rebounds, four assists and one block in Friday's blowout loss to the Thunder.

    Advice: Smith is the first guy to look at if Carmelo Anthony (back) misses more time, but he has been mostly terrible this season and Derek Fisher has no problem benching him. Consider speculative adds at your own risk. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:33 pm
  • Shumpert quiet in blowout loss to the Thunder
    Iman Shumpert had a quiet night in Friday's blowout loss to the Thunder, scoring seven points on 3-of-9 shooting with zero rebounds, one assist and one block in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Shumpert has struggled lately but is a solid late-round play on the year, making him a must-own player regardless of Carmelo Anthony's (back) status. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • James Harden scores 16 points vs. Clippers
    James Harden scores 16 points vs. the Clippers during a 102-85 loss on Friday with four rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and five turnovers.

    Advice: He really needs some help. Isaiah Canaan (ankle) and Patrick Beverley (hamstring) are not going to play while Dwight Howard (knee) is highly doubtful for Saturday. The Clippers threw some wild defensive strategy at Harden tonight and that's probably going to continue. That said, it doesn't matter and Harden should put up huge numbers. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Augustin scores 10 points on 1-of-7 shooting
    D.J. Augustin hit just 1-of-7 shots (7-of-9 FTs) in Friday's loss, scoring 10 points with zero rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in another start for Brandon Jennings (thumb).

    Advice: Augustin now has two bad games and one good one filling in for Jennings, but should be owned for however long Jennings is out. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Brandan Wright has another bad game
    Brandan Wright made just 2-of-7 from the field four points during a 106-102 on Friday, adding two rebounds and one block in 15 minutes.

    Advice: He is struggling right now and has missed five shots in his last two games. Wright should get easy shots on Saturday and his fantasy owners should stick with him. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Devin Harris has a decent game
    Devin Harris scored eight points with six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes on Friday night.

    Advice: He only attempted four shots from the field and couldn't get many clean looks tonight in Toronto. Harris probably has another game as the starter against the 76ers and should be better. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:30 pm
  • James Johnson could get more run
    James Johnson played 17 minutes against the Mavericks on Friday with two points, four rebounds, one assist and three fouls.

    Advice: He is having some fouling issues in his time back, but there is a big opportunity in front of him. Johnson could get his minutes in the mid 20s if DeMar DeRozan (groin) needs to miss time, so he's worth a look in some standard formats. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Cory Joseph is good to go for Friday night
    Cory Joseph (ankle) will play on Friday against the Kings.

    Advice: He suffered an ankle tweak last Friday and will return to the lineup. Joseph should get double-digit minutes tonight and maybe more because of garbage time. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:50 pm
  • Cory Joseph (ankle) upgraded to probable Fri.
    Cory Joseph (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Joseph is averaging a meager 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists this season, so whether he plays or not should be of no concern to owners in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:48 am
  • Grant Jerrett cleared to play for Thunder
    Grant Jerrett has been cleared to play for the Thunder after dealing with an ankle injury.

    Advice: With Russell Westbrook back and Reggie Jackson coming off the bench, Jerrett is clearly an afterthought. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:35 am
  • C.J. Watson to make debut on Friday
    C.J. Watson is expected to make his season debut on Friday after being out with a foot injury.

    Advice: The Pacers could use some help at guard and while he might eat into Donald Sloan's minutes a bit, Sloan looks to have done enough to hold the starting point guard job, at least until George Hill returns some time later in December. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:28 am
  • D.J. Augustin starting again on Friday
    D.J. Augustin will start at point guard again on Friday, as Brandon Jennings sits for the third straight game with a left thumb injury.

    Advice: Augustin had 19 points and a full stat line on Wednesday and should be in for more of the same tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:26 am
  • Cory Joseph questionable for Friday vs Kings
    Cory Joseph (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: Joseph is only averaging 7.8 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists this season, so Joseph's status means more to the injury-depleted Spurs than it does to fantasy owners. If Joseph is again unable to play, Manu Ginobili and Marco Belinelli would handle the ball when Tony Parker is on the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:00 am
  • Nick Young hits 4-of-14 shots in loss
    Nick Young hit just 4-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 13 points and two blocks in Wednesday's loss.

    Advice: The Lakers were talking about "force feeding" Young tonight, but it never really happened. Like Isaiah Thomas, Gerald Green, Giannis Antetokounmpo and J.R. Smith, Young is always an interesting all-or-nothing play. Unfortunately, tonight was closer to nothing than all, and Young's been too inconsistent to be trusted as an everyday starter in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:09 am
  • Copeland coping with fewer minutes for Indy
    Chris Copeland came off the bench and played just 23 minutes to finish with 12 points, three rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers on 4-of-10 shooting Wednesday.

    Advice: David West is finally expected back on Friday from a severely sprained ankle as Copeland's minutes and production have been slipping. Once West is back, Copeland is probably waiver-wire material in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:10 pm
  • James Harden scores 26 points on 31 FGAs
    James Harden made 10-of-31 from the field for 26 points against the Kings during a 102-89 win on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, eight assists, two steals, three blocks and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He only turned the ball over once and the Rockets did win against a good Kings team, so it's hard to bash The Beard for the ridiculous shooting clip. He set a career high in shot attempts tonight, but he's cleared the 30-point plateau in every game with at least 25 shots from the field. Regardless, Harden is a fantasy stud. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:34 pm
  • James Johnson blocks three in 20 minutes
    James Johnson (illness) played 20 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday with four points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and three blocks.

    Advice: He was reportedly very ill, but Johnson takes great pride in calling himself Wolverine. He is doing a great job on the defensive side and he had a nice Euro step on the offensive end tonight, too. Johnson is a sneaky player to own in 14-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:28 pm
  • Jose Calderon erupts for 21 & 10 w/ seven 3s
    Jose Calderon blew up vs. his former team on Wednesday, notching season highs with 21 points, seven 3-pointers, 10 rebounds and four assists in a tough loss to the Mavericks.

    Advice: Calderon came in averaging just 8.0 points and 4.0 assists in his first two games of the season, following an extended absence due to a calf strain. He showed zero signs of rust tonight, nearly carrying the Knicks to an upset win despite the absence of Carmelo Anthony (back spasms). Calderon's extraordinary efficiency and unquestioned starting job make him a must-start fantasy PG, and his owners' only concern should be whether he can stay healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:24 pm
  • J.R. Smith struggles w/ shot in fill-in start
    J.R. Smith started Wednesday's game with Carmelo Anthony (back spasms) unavailable, scoring 15 points with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, five assists and one steal.

    Advice: He made 7-of-20 FGs and turned the ball over seven times, which is painful, but he's a solid fantasy play whenever he's in the Knicks' starting unit. Anthony is expected to travel for Friday's game in OKC, so fantasy owners should keep a close eye on New York's injury report before relying on Smith for ongoing production. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:24 pm
  • Devin Harris starts for Jameer Nelson (back)
    Devin Harris started at PG with Jameer Nelson (back spasms) unavailable on Wednesday, posting nine points, eight assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes vs. the visiting Knicks.

    Advice: Harris made only 2-of-10 shots but one of those was a 3-pointer, and he turned the ball over just once in a season-high 40 minutes of action. Nelson is day-to-day so it's tough to rely on Harris as more than a late-round option, and 12-team owners can ignore J.J. Barea (10 points in 15 minutes). The Mavericks get a day off before traveling for a tough road game in Toronto on Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:22 pm
  • D.J. Augustin scores 19 pts in start for DET
    D.J. Augustin made his second straight start on Wednesday, finishing a loss to the Clippers with 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, six assists and three turnovers.

    Advice: Augustin played 35 minutes in another fill-in start for Brandon Jennings, who remains day-to-day with a sprained thumb. This was easily D.J.'s best and most complete game of the season, and it's hard to recommend him as a pickup considering Jennings could return as soon as Friday's home game vs. Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:49 pm
  • Channing Frye held to single-digits yet again
    Channing Frye was held to single digits for the fourth straight game on Wednesday, making just 1-of-4 shots for two points in 24 minutes vs. Golden State.

    Advice: Frye added three boards and one block but this was an unvarnished dud for his fantasy owners. The return of Kyle O'Quinn presents another challenge for Frye's playing time, though he has enough upside as a 3-point shooter to be worth hanging onto in most 12-team formats. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:04 pm
  • James Johnson is playing on Wednesday
    James Johnson (illness) is playing on Wednesday.

    Advice: The team didn't update him and he just checked in. Johnson should have limited playing time tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 5:17 pm
  • Devin Harris is starting for the Mavericks
    Devin Harris will start at point guard against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He and J.J. Barea are likely going to split the point guard minutes right down the middle, but Harris' steals and treys do make him a slightly more attractive option. Barea is certainly a capable option as well. Jameer Nelson isn't expected to miss much time, so Harris doesn't gain too much value. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:21 pm
  • Cory Joseph out Wednesday w/ sprained ankle
    Cory Joseph (ankle) will not play vs. the Pacers on Wednesday, as expected.

    Advice: Joseph was doubtful to play but he remains day-to-day, so he could be back as soon as Friday's game vs. the Kings. The Spurs don't have a pure backup PG but they're comfortable handing the ball to Marco Belinelli and Manu Ginobili. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:57 pm
  • James Johnson (flu) questionable for Wed
    James Johnson (flu) is questionable to face the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is under the weather and the Raptors might not need him. Johnson played four minutes in his return from an ankle injury on Monday, but the fouls were likely the issue. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:17 pm
  • J.R. Smith starts in place of Carmelo (back)
    J.R. Smith will start for the Knicks on Wednesday in place of Carmelo Anthony (back).

    Advice: This move was anticipated by coach Derek Fisher earlier in the day, as Melo's severe back spasms had him very doubtful to suit up vs. the Mavericks. Smith is a fine play in all fantasy formats with Melo out of the lineup, as his touches and shot attempts should spike as a focal point of the Knicks' offense. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:10 pm
  • Forcefeed coming to Nick Young vs. MEM?
    Coach Byron Scott said the Lakers will "forcefeed" Nick Young in Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies to help get him going.

    Advice: Uh oh. That's basically giving the Cookie Monster an all-you-can-eat trip to the cookie stand in the mall. Young has only attempted 9.5 shots per game in his last two, so he will likely get shots in the teens. On the down side, the Grizzlies play very good defense, so he could have an inefficient game. He's a decent option in daily leagues, but owners in standards might have a better option on a 13-game night. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:28 am
  • J.R. Smith expected to start at SF Wednesday
    J.R. Smith is expected to start at forward in place of Carmelo Anthony (back) on Wednesday, according to coach Derek Fisher.

    Advice: We'll have to wait and see who makes up the starting unit tonight, but Smith gets a boost in value with Carmelo very unlikely to play again before Sunday, at the earliest. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:43 am
  • D.J. Augustin w/ 11 pts, 7 assists as starter
    D.J. Augustin started on Tuesday with Brandon Jennings (thumb) unavailable, notching 11 points, one 3-pointer, two rebounds, seven assists and one steal in a loss vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Augustin shot 4-of-11 from the field and turned the ball over five times in 37 minutes, so it was a flawed performance in his first start of the season. Jennings is questionable to return Wednesday vs. the Clippers, so owners targeting Augustin for short-term value should keep a close eye on Detroit's injury report. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:58 pm
  • Cory Joseph (ankle) doubtful for Wednesday
    Cory Joseph (ankle) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: If Joseph is unable to play, Manu Ginobili will be asked to do a little more as the Spurs backup point guard, and Tony Parker will see some extended minutes. Joseph is averaging 7.8 points and 2.1 assists through 17.5 minutes of action this season, and he can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:17 pm
  • Cory Joseph (ankle) doubtful for Wednesday
    Cory Joseph (sprained left ankle) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Joseph has been targeting Wednesday as his potential return date but the Spurs' training staff must not be on the same page. If he does sit out, expect guys like Manu Ginobili, Marco Belinelli and even Boris Diaw to handle the ball more when Tony Parker isn't on the court. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:14 pm
  • No setbacks for James Johnson
    James Johnson didn't suffer a setback in Monday's game when he played just four minutes in his return from an ankle injury.

    Advice: The Raps are just working him back into the mix slowly, so it might take him a week to get back up to speed. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:24 am
  • Wright has another perfect game on Monday
    Brandan Wright had another perfect game from the field on Monday, hitting all six of his shots for 13 points, four rebounds and two blocks in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Wright is a machine and the only thing that can stop him is his own health, but for now he seems fairly durable and playing behind an older set of big men he has a lot of upside (especially in the case of Tyson Chandler). He's returning top 40-70 value (9/8 cat) and congratulations are in order if you drafted him. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:21 pm
  • Harden scores season-high 36 points
    James Harden scored a season-high 36 points in the Rockets' 91-86 win over the Knicks on Monday, hitting 11-of-22 shots (7-of-12 from deep, 7-of-7 from the line) with six rebounds, six assists, three steals and one block.

    Advice: Harden is a beast and likely to be a top-5 fantasy asset even when LeBron James gets back on track, and the Thunder guys return and get rolling. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:00 pm
  • Copeland's value goes into the tank
    Chris Copeland scored 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting with three treys, one board and that's it in 14 minutes off the bench on Monday.

    Advice: Copeland never had any real value in standard leagues unless you were punting half your categories and who does that. Even though he hit three treys he's waiver wire fodder. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:46 pm
  • Calderon ramping it up in return from injury
    Jose Calderon increased his playing time in his second game back from injury in the Knicks' 91-86 loss to the Rockets on Monday, scoring nine points on 3-of-7 shooting (including a three) with one rebound and five assists in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Owners need to exhibit patience as he knocks the rust off while hopefully keeping himself off the injury report. When he's at full speed he's a mid-round asset and he's also extremely valuable to the Knicks' flailing offense. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:19 pm
  • Shumpert fills it up except for his FG%
    Iman Shumpert hit just 2-of-10 shots in Monday's loss to the Rockets, finishing with seven points, six rebounds, five assists and one steal in 30 foul-plagued minutes.

    Advice: Shumpert has injury risk of his own but with plenty of main cogs getting dinged up he's a must-own player for that fact alone. That he already has top-100 value on his own is what owners can hang their hats on as long as he stays healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:15 pm
  • Smith struggles to produce on Monday
    J.R. Smith logged 19 minutes on Monday, scoring eight points on 3-of-6 shooting (including two threes) with three boards, two assists and one steal.

    Advice: Smith is worth watching in the event Carmelo Anthony's injuries are more serious rather than less serious, but so far with Anthony traveling to Dallas with the team this isn't close to a run-to-the-wire moment. Tim Hardaway Jr. (five points, 15 minutes) falls into the same boat and is a cut below Smith. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:10 pm
  • James Johnson plays four minutes on Monday
    James Johnson played four minutes against the Suns with one steal and two fouls.

    Advice: He didn't take a single shot tonight and may not be 100 percent. Johnson said he was "like Wolverine" for recovering so soon from his ankle sprain, but he wasn't a superhero with fouling tonight. He should be better his next time out. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:06 pm
  • James Johnson will play on Monday night
    James Johnson (ankle) will play against the Suns on Monday night.

    Advice: He has been out since Nov. 16 with what looked like a severe ankle sprain, but Johnson is likely going to see his normal minutes. He was actually turning in mid-round value because of all the defensive stats, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. To be clear, he's not a must-own player and obviously won't be a mid-round guy on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 2:49 pm
  • Cory Joseph aiming to return on Wednesday
    Cory Joseph (ankle) is aiming to return on Wednesday against the Pacers.

    Advice: Joseph's ankle swelled after injuring it on Friday, but he thinks almost a week off will be enough to get back out there. Unless he has a setback, it sounds like his absence will last all of one game. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:13 am
  • Chris Kaman scores 16 points in 18 minutes
    Chris Kaman wasn't shy offensively on Sunday, making 6-of-13 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs to finish with 16 points, eight rebounds and one steal in just 18 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Kaman is the go-to option for Portland's second unit, which suits him perfectly. He abused Tyler Zeller's defense tonight and has now scored double-digit points in seven straight games, but he's barely clinging to value in 12-team roto leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:28 pm
  • Jose Calderon returned to action on Saturday November 22. Rotoworld.com

  • Iman Shumpert still plays 32 minutes
    Iman Shumpert played 32 minutes against the Sixers on Saturday with seven points, two rebounds, three assists, four steals and two turnovers.

    Advice: He looked comfortable as the shooting guard tonight and coach Derek Fisher seems to have some confidence in Shumpert as his best wing defender. He won't be an elite guy, but he should have enough value worthy of ownership in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:06 pm
  • Jose Calderon struggles in his start
    Jose Calderon played 21 minutes in his Knicks debut on Saturday vs. the 76ers with three points, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He had both of his calves wrapped tonight and was a step slow. Calderon will obviously be better than tonight and he's been gold in nine-category leagues because of his low turnovers. Make sure he's not on the wire despite this ugly game. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:04 pm
  • James Harden bounces back, wins it for Rox
    James Harden hit 8-of-18 shots, four 3-pointers and 12-of-13 free throws for 32 points, eight boards, four assists and two steals in Saturday's comeback win over the Mavs.

    Advice: Harden was fouled late, made the shot and hit the free throw for a tough 3-point play to put the Rockets ahead for good on Saturday. He scored just six points on Tuesday, but bounced back for 24 points on Thursday and 32 tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:51 pm
  • Devin Harris quiet in return for Mavs
    Devin Harris returned from his ankle injury and hit 2-of-7 shots for nine points and one assist.

    Advice: His two hits were 3-pointers, but J.J. Barea was at again tonight with seven points and two assists in just 17 minutes. And once you add Raymond Felton to the mix next week, the Mavs guards not named Monta Ellis will be players to avoid at almost any cost. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:35 pm
  • Brandan Wright stays hot in loss to Rockets
    Brandan Wright hit 6-of-7 shots (as usual) and racked up 14 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in just 22 minutes on Saturday.

    Advice: Wright is a beast right now and a very economical center in daily leagues. Despite coming off the bench and getting just 19.4 minutes per game, Wright has scored in double figures in seven straight games and came into this one averaging 12.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks over his last five. Those numbers are going up and he’s shooting it lights out this season, and hitting 31-of-39 shots over his last six games. If starter Tyson Chandler ever gets hurt, look out. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:31 pm
  • Cory Joseph (ankle) will not play vs. Nets
    Cory Joseph (ankle) will not play against the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Spurs are without a backup point guard, but Manu Ginobili should help out there. That should also open up some minutes on the wing for Danny Green and Austin Daye. Joseph's injury doesn't sound serious. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:56 pm
  • Devin Harris (leg) will play vs. Rockets
    Devin Harris (sore leg) will play vs. the Rockets on Saturday, as expected.

    Advice: Harris will return to the bench role he's played all season, averaging 8.6 points, 1.1 triples, 1.7 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.3 steals in just 23 minutes per game. Those numbers are attractive enough for use in many leagues, but he's less attractive given the strong play of J.J. Barea and the impending return of Raymond Felton from suspension. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:36 pm
  • James Johnson is out again on Saturday
    James Johnson (ankle) will not play on Saturday against the Cavs.

    Advice: He was not expected to play anyway and hasn't gone through a full practice yet. Terrence Ross and Patrick Patterson will get some extra run tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:10 pm
  • Jose Calderon in the starting lineup on Sat.
    Jose Calderon will be in the starting lineup against the Sixers on Saturday.

    Advice: There is no official minute restriction, but the Knicks would be extremely foolish to play him big minutes. Calderon has been out all season after an aggravation and he has a laundry list of muscle issues in his career. He should be owned in all leagues, but his owners should bench him. Shane Larkin owner will want to cut him in just about every league. We'll also keep an eye on how Calderon's return affects guys like Iman Shumpert. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 2:51 pm
  • Nick Young still wearing soft cast
    Nick Young has been playing with a soft cast on his right thumb for all three games this season.

    Advice: While his right arm may be strictly for buckets, it's possible the cast on his shooting hand could have hindered him. Young made just 2-of-7 from the field for five points against the Mavericks on Friday. He is really going to struggle in most non-scoring categories in fantasy leagues, so it's not going to be easy for him to be a top-120 guy. Rotoworld.com

  • Cory Joseph and Matt Bonner are doubtful
    Cory Joseph (ankle) and Matt Bonner (illness) are doubtful to face the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Spurs are going to be in a little bit of trouble tonight with no backup point guard. In previous instances, they have used Manu Ginobili as the primary ball handler in the second unit and that should be the case tonight. Austin Daye may also get some extra playing time. Rotoworld.com

  • Devin Harris (leg) expected to play Saturday
    Devin Harris (leg) is expected to play in Houston on Saturday.

    Advice: The Mavs' veteran guard has missed two games due to soreness in his lower right leg, but it shouldn't limit him as he resumes his backup role vs. the Rockets. J.J. Barea has been playing well in Harris' absence and Raymond Felton's return on Nov. 24 is another challenge to Harris' playing time, making him a dubious option in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Wright with yet another efficient line on Fri
    Brandan Wright hit all five of his field goal attempts in Friday's blowout win, finishing with 12 points, three boards and two steals in just 19 minutes.

    Advice: Wright is hitting an absurd 77.8 percent from the field while returning top 50-90 value (9/8 cat) in just 18.6 mpg. If you were an early adopter or drafted Wright go ahead and pat yourself on the back, and if your league is still sleeping it's time to wake up. Rotoworld.com

  • D.J. Augustin squanders his chance
    D.J. Augustin scored 14 points with five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer on 4-of-17 from the field against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: He picked up some extra minutes because Brandon Jennings (thumb) suffered an injury, Jennings could miss time, but he didn't break anything and it's possible he is ready for Tuesday against the Bucks. Considering how that game is a few days away, there's little reason to speculatively add Augustin. Rotoworld.com

  • James Johnson still out on Friday night
    James Johnson (ankle) will not play against the Bucks on Friday.

    Advice: He is expected to miss more games, but he has been on the practice court in a limited capacity. Terrence Ross and Patrick Patterson will get some more run tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Devin Harris (leg) questionable for Saturday
    Devin Harris (lower right leg soreness) is being listed as day-to-day, and he hasn’t yet been ruled out of Saturday’s game vs. Houston.

    Advice: "He's been checked out pretty extensively the last couple of days. I'll leave it at that," said Rick Carlisle regarding Harris. "We don't think it's serious." While Harris is out his minutes will be distributed amongst J.J. Barea, Jameer Nelson, and Monta Ellis. Ellis will take on a larger portion of the scoring load, and Barea could make for a nice plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 4:09 pm
  • C.J. Watson still out for a while
    C.J. Watson (foot) is not expected to return until after Thanksgiving.

    Advice: He doesn't have a timetable to return and we might not see him in game action until December. Considering how Watson has dealt with foot issues before, the team will likely manage his minutes for a while -- Rodney Stuckey also aggravating his foot injury doesn't help. There is not enough incentive to stash him in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jose Calderon (calf) practices in full on Fri
    Jose Calderon (calf) was a full participant during Friday's practice, and he's expected to make his Knicks' debut on Saturday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: Calderon's return will send Shane Larkin to the bench, and Iman Shumpert's value will take a small hit. He has a very favorable matchup vs. the Philadelphia "Tanker," but owners will want to check back for an official update as we draw closer to Saturday's tip. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:21 am
  • Devin Harris (leg) will not play Friday
    Devin Harris (lower right leg soreness) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: J.J. Barea, Jameer Nelson, and Monta Ellis will see their minutes increased with Harris sidelined, and Barea could make for a nice low-budget buy in daily leagues. He's coming off a 14-point, six assist outing vs. the Wizards, and has a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers. Rotoworld.com

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

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

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

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

  • James Johnson (ankle) sheds walking boot
    James Johnson (ankle) was moving well without a walking boot after the Raptors' practice on Thursday.

    Advice: The Raptors' defensive specialist and energizer is questionable for Friday's home game vs. the Bucks. It wouldn't be surprising to see him held out another game as a precaution, but we'll have a much clearer idea of his status after shootaround. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:26 am
  • Jose Calderon expected to play Saturday
    Jose Calderon (calf) is expected to play against the 76ers on Saturday.

    Advice: This is great news for the 3-10 Knicks as they could use Calderon's veteran leadership and it is also great news for fantasy owners who are in need of point guard help. Calderon should immediately take over point guard duties from Pablo Prigioni and Shane Larkin, while Iman Shumpert's fantasy value will take a minor hit as Calderson's return should diminish his usage.

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

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

  • Iman Shumpert makes just 1-of-11 shots
    Iman Shumpert made just 1-of-11 from the field against the Wolves on Wednesday with three points, four rebounds, one assist and four turnovers.

    Advice: He turned in a 21-point gem on Tuesday night and was on the other end of the spectrum. Most of the Knicks wings are not giving Shumpert much competition, so he should still be able to keep his playing time somewhat high even when Jose Calderon (calf) comes back. He's worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:32 pm
  • J.R. Smith looks awful again on Wednesday
    J.R. Smith was awful on Wednesday against the Wolves with three points and four assists in 13 minutes.

    Advice: He played horrible defense all night and Smith is not earning his playing time. He's done very little to get the attention of fantasy owners in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:26 pm
  • Brandan Wright scores 14 off Mavs bench
    Brandan Wright hit 6-of-7 shots off the bench for 14 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in Wednesday's win.

    Advice: Wright has somehow scored in double figures in five straight games and is averaging 12.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks over that stretch, despite playing just 19 minutes a game. He's also hit 24-of-31 shots during that run, and is worth owning in most leagues, despite coming off the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:32 pm
  • Chris Copeland's minutes take a hit
    Chris Copeland played just 27 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday with six points, two rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: His minutes took a significant hit with Rodney Stuckey returning tonight after a 39-minute game in his last outing. Copeland is struggling from the field and has hit just 34.0 percent in his last five, averaging 9.0 points, 3.0 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.4 steals and 1.8 triples in that span. If you're eyeing another hot free agent, Copeland is not a must-own player anymore. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:03 pm
  • Channing Frye quietly solid for Magic
    Channing Frye hit 3-of-8 shots (all 3-pointers) and finished with 10 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: Frye has hit a 3-pointer in seven straight games and is averaging 2.6 of them on the season, along with 11.2 points and 6.1 rebounds. He's not all that reliable in the steals and blocks categories, but came through across the board tonight. He's always capable of disappearing for a game, but has bounced back well all season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:58 pm
  • Devin Harris (ankle) is out on Wednesday
    Devin Harris (ankle) won't suit up for Wednesday's game against the Wizards, but is targeting a return on Friday.

    Advice: We saw this one coming from a mile away, as Harris has been injury-prone throughout his career. He should be fine with a little rest, and he is hopeful he will play on Friday. J.J. Barea figures to be the main beneficiary of Harris' absence, while Jameer Nelson will likely see a slight uptick in minutes with the first unit. However, neither player is reliable enough for standard leagues in the long term. Rotoworld.com
