  • Jeff Taylor's hearing moved back to Oct. 29
    Jeff Taylor's pre-trial hearing on charges including domestic assault has been moved to Oct. 29, the same day the Hornets play their season opener.

    Advice: Taylor has been barred from team activities since charges were filed and he may face a suspension from the league if he admits guilt or is found guilty during the legal process. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Rush leaves w/ aggravated lower back
    Brandon Rush sat out the second half of Sunday's game due to spasms in his lower back.

    Advice: Rush tweaked his back on Friday and may need a few more days to recover, but at least the injury doesn't sound serious. Reconstructive knee surgery has derailed his career but he's looking to make a comeback with Golden State this season, and the injury risk combined with a bench role is enough reason to avoid him in fantasy leagues.

  • Dante Exum quiet in start at PG w/ Burke out
    Dante Exum started at PG on Sunday and finished with five points, four rebounds, five assists, one steal and four turnovers in 28 minutes vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: He made 2-of-7 field goals (0-of-4 from deep) and only started because Trey Burke was given the night off. As a 19-year-old with minimal professional experience and a backup role, fantasy owners are right to be skeptical of his value as a rookie. Rotoworld.com

  • P.J. Tucker ready to earn minutes at PF
    With mounting competition for playing time at small forward, P.J. Tucker said he's ready and able to play power forward as needed.

    Advice: "When I go to [power forward], very rarely are we going to be a mismatch," said Tucker, who will be suspended the first three games of the season. "I can guard any four. And then they're not going to be able to guard us with the way we run the ball and spread the floor." Gerald Green is likely to play more SF this season, and both Marcus Morris and rookie T.J. Warren are also vying for SF minutes. Tucker's ability to play some PF is encouraging for his fantasy outlook, but he's still a flier pick at best. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Julius Randle thrives in second-half surge
    Lakers rookie PF Julius Randle finished Sunday's game with a strong second half, on his way to eight points, five rebounds and two blocks in just 20 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: "[Randle] has a world of talent," coach Byron Scott said after the game. "It’s about [doing it consistently]." Consistency may be hard to come by for Randle, a rookie on a lottery-bound team who has barely played with the team's starting PGs. Although he's a sketchy draft-day value in most fantasy leagues, he's worth keeping an eye on as the season progresses. Rotoworld.com

  • Enes Kanter struggles in another start at PF
    Enes Kanter scored 14 points with seven rebounds and one assist vs. the Lakers on Sunday, before fouling out in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Kanter made 7-of-15 field goals while going 0-of-3 from downtown and failing to attempt a single free throw. He added zero steals but did block one shot for his second defensive stat of the preseason, while allowing Carlos Boozer to explode for 19 points, nine boards and a career-high-tying six steals. The Kanter-as-PF experiment is still in a testing phase. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Lakers win behind Kobe's team-high 26 points
    Kobe Bryant scored a team-high 26 points on Sunday, making 7-of-22 FGs and 9-of-11 FTs with three 3-pointers, four rebounds, five assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He was serenaded with 'M-V-P' chants during the final minute of L.A.'s meaningless victory -- wins will be few and far between for the Lakers this year, so it's hard to begrudge their fans some preseason fun. Kobe is expected to play in L.A.'s final three exhibitions with his minutes slowly ramping up to test his regular-season conditioning. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:20 pm
  • Carlos Boozer ties career-high w/ six steals
    Carlos Boozer tied his career-high with six steals during Sunday's exhibition win, adding 19 points, nine rebounds and one block in 28 minutes vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Boozer made 6-of-12 FGs and 7-of-7 FTs, taking full advantage of Enes Kanter's defensive limitations. He looks determined to hold off rookie Julius Randle for the starting PF job and shouldn't have much trouble early in the season. Just keep in mind that once the losses mount coach Byron Scott may cede to reality and unleash Randle to Boozer's detriment. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Ronnie Price gets 10 assists in 38 minutes
    With Steve Nash (nerve damage) and Jeremy Lin (ankle) unavailable for Sunday's exhibition, Lakers' PG Ronnie Price delivered 10 assists in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Price finished with six points, two rebounds, 10 dimes, four steals, one block and three turnovers against an inexperienced Jazz backcourt. The absence of rookie G Jordan Clarkson (calf) is yet another reason for Price's increased activity, and despite tonight's solid line he's not an option in average fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Alec Burks (shoulder) leads Jazz w/ 21 points
    Alec Burks returned from his left shoulder injury to score 21 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and six turnovers in 29 minutes during Sunday's exhibition.

    Advice: Burks made 7-of-14 FGs and 7-of-9 FTs, and he made the highlight reel with a behind-the-back dribble to blow past Kobe Bryant and split two defenders for a layup in the second quarter. Utah needs another reliable ball-handler to take some pressure off Trey Burke, and Burks' offensive versatility makes him an intriguing late-round option at SG. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Hayward, Favors rested in road loss to Lakers
    Gordon Hayward and Derek Favors each played 12 minutes before sitting out Utah's loss in L.A. as a precaution.

    Advice: Hayward racked up eight points, three assists and three steals, and Favors was equally impressive, but the Jazz predictably lost their footing once they were pulled by coach Quin Snyder. Both of Utah's cornerstone players should see an uptick in playing time for Tuesday's road game vs. the Thunder. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • Anthony Morrow scores 14 points as starter
    Anthony Morrow struggled from downtown in Sunday's home loss, going 0-of-5 from deep, but he still finished with 14 points and two assists in 31 minutes

    Advice: The good news is that Morrow still launched five 3-pointers and got solid playing time, which will be the bedrock of his fantasy value this season. He's worth a look as a perimeter specialist and may even earn a starting job on opening night, but be mindful that his role will shrink when Kevin Durant (foot) returns to action. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:46 pm
  • Nick Collison (ankle) out on Sunday
    Nick Collison (ankle) will sit out on Sunday Vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: His ankle isn't serious and the Thunder are just going to be cautious with him considering this is just preseason. Regardless, ignore him on draft day. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:22 pm
  • Paul Pierce (knee bruise) held out Sunday
    Paul Pierce (knee bruise) was held out of practice on Sunday.

    Advice: He suffered the injury during Friday's game and was eventually cleared to return. He's not expected to play in Monday's exhibition but should be ready to go for the season opener, and his 3-point shooting alone makes him a solid pick in the later rounds. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:40 am
  • Snyder wants improvement from Enes Kanter
    Head coach Quin Snyder wants Enes Kanter to focus on the details this season, and become a better defensive player.

    Advice: "I want him to get better and commit to improving on both sides of the floor in every facet of the game," Snyder said. "If defense doesn’t come easily, then he has to focus on it. Enes has to make the minor details important, even things like getting into a stance. But he’s [22] years old, and we’re evaluating him against the best players in the world at a young age." Kanter's lack of defensive stats has been the greatest impediment to his fantasy value, and through five preseason games this season, Kanter has recorded just one steal and zero blocks. Currently, Kanter is locked into the starting power forward position with Utah, but if he continues to be useless defensively, he could lose playing time to emerging defensive stud Rudy Gobert. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:49 am
  • Jamal Crawford scores 23 on 12 FGAs
    Jamal Crawford was terrific in his 36 minutes of action on Saturday with 23 points, three assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

    Advice: He's coming off a 25-point game on Friday and is so hot right now. Crawford has been a little streaky, which is not unusual for a shooting guard. Crawford ate like was at a buffet while Chris Paul and J.J. Redick were out last season, but he's probably going to more of a late-round asset due to his lack of multiple-category lines. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:38 pm
  • Brandon Rush says he's fine on Saturday
    Brandon Rush said on Saturday that he's fine after his back injury on Friday.

    Advice: He said he originally hurt it while doing some weight lifting and he's questionable for Sunday. Rush has no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:09 pm
  • Alec Burks (left shoulder) probable Sunday
    Alec Burks (left shoulder) is probable for Sunday's exhibition against the Lakers.

    Advice: He has been trying to recover from a bruised shoulder and appears to have beaten out the minor injury very quickly. He averaged 14.2 points, 3.4 assists, and 2.8 rebounds last season and we expect those numbers to elevate with a bigger role under new coach Quin Snyder. Burks is a solid late-round pick in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 2:52 pm
  • Hayward scores 22 points, hits all 12 FTs
    Gordon Hayward lit up the box score in Friday's 101-97 preseason loss to the Clippers, scoring 22 points on 4-of-7 shooting (2-of-4 3PTs, 12-of-12 FTs) with six rebounds, four assists and six steals.

    Advice: Keep in mind that these games are loose and often generate pinball statistics. Hayward looks the part after his time with Team USA and has early round upside with a nice and safe mid-round floor. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:38 pm
  • Morrow steps into the starting lineup
    Anthony Morrow (ankle) stepped into the starting lineup in Friday's 109-90 preseason loss to the Raptors, scoring 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including three treys) with two rebounds, four assists and one steal in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Morrow looks like the guy to own between he and Jeremy Lamb and looks like the starting small forward on Opening Night. Whether he starts or not, the Thunder desperately need his outside shooting and he's a solid bet for 25-plus minutes per night at least until Kevin Durant returns. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 10:43 pm
  • Rush misses second half with back spasms
    Brandon Rush exited Friday's preseason game against the Heat before the second half due to back spasms and did not return.

    Advice: Rush is on the long road back from a serious knee injury and as a result tightness due to game action isn't too surprising. His services are particularly valuable to the Warriors while Shaun Livingston gets back on track from a toe injury. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:46 pm
  • Pierce calls it an early night after scare
    Paul Pierce hit the ground hard just before halftime of Friday's exhibition and started clutching his knee, but after being assisted to the locker room he was cleared to return to the game.

    Advice: Per the TV broadcast, Pierce parlayed the situation into an early shower and a head start on Friday night's activities. If you ever see him writhing around in pain, chances are he's going to emerge from the locker room and lay the hammer down. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:03 pm
  • Anthony Morrow (ankle) could start on Friday
    Anthony Morrow (ankle) went through some light pregame work, and could draw the start at small forward for Friday's preseason game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: It's not yet been determined who will start once the regular season begin, but Morrow figures to be either the team’s starting small forward, or their sixth man. Either way, Morrow offers enough upside to be worthy of a late-round selection for owners seeking some 3-point shooting. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:47 pm
  • Paul Pierce will play on Friday vs. Hornets
    Paul Pierce will suit up for Friday's preseason game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Pierce was rested during Wednesday's exhibition, but he'll make a return to the lineup on Friday. Pierce's ability to contribute to all areas of the stat sheet make him a viable option, and he figures to be a value pick late in drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:26 pm
  • Alec Burks (bruised left shoulder) out Friday
    Alec Burks (bruised left shoulder) will not play in Friday's exhibition game against the Clippers.

    Advice: The injury is not considered serious, but there's just no reason to risk anything during preseason. Burks averaged 14.2 points, 3.4 assists, and 2.8 rebounds while shooting 80.4 percent from the charity stripe as a starter last season, and the fact that he fits in well with coach Quin Snyder's system is encouraging for his fantasy value. We like Burks as a late-round selection with some upside. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:27 pm
  • Nick Collison (ankle) will not play Friday
    Nick Collison (ankle) will not play in Friday's exhibition game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: Collison's injury isn't serious, but he's also not a viable fantasy option in any fantasy leagues. Feel free to ignore the 10-year veteran come draft day. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:58 am
  • Dante Exum has his best line as a pro
    Dante Exum had his best game as a pro on Thursday against the Lakers, making 3-of-6 from the field for 13 points, one rebound, six assists, no turnovers and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He made all six attempts from the line and was a huge plus off the bench. The Lakers have been lost on defense, so this terrific game does come with a grain of salt. He's going to start the season slow, but maybe he'll be on the radar in a couple months. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:39 pm
  • Gordon Hayward carves up the Lake Show
    Gordon Hayward scored 16 points on 5-of-7 shooting to go with four assists, four steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer on Thursday.

    Advice: It sure does help to go against the Lakers, but this was Hayward's best game. He added some muscle to his frame and it should help his field goal percentage. He could put it all together and be a top-20 player this season. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:30 pm
  • Kobe Bryant scores 27 points on 23 FGAs
    Kobe Bryant looked like his old self against the Jazz during a 119-86 loss on Thursday, making 10-of-23 from the field and 7-of-13 from the line for 27 points with five rebounds, four assists and one steal in 28 minutes.

    Advice: The Lakers missed all five shots from beyond the arc tonight and also missed all three on Sunday. Bryant took exception to ESPN ranking him as the 40th best player in the league and said he's "known for a long time that they're a bunch of idiots." We have Kobe inside the top 40 for our rankings in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:16 pm
  • Carlos Boozer looks good on Thursday
    Carlos Boozer played 28 minutes against one of his former teams on Thursday during a 119-86 loss, scoring 17 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block.

    Advice: He's posting some decent scoring lines in the preseason, but the Lakers look lost on defense. Boozer isn't going to be a highly-coveted guy in your draft, but he should put up some nice points and boards totals. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:14 pm
  • Julius Randle dealing with blisters
    Julius Randle was dealing with blisters on his heels in Thursday's game against the Jazz, finishing with four points, one rebound, one assist and one turnover in 11 minutes.

    Advice: Coach Byron Scott said Randle could have gone back in and mentioned the rookie has to play "harder for longer." Randle was impressive in summer league, but the transition to the NBA game isn't happening right away. He's not really a target in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:10 pm
  • Alec Burks (shoulder) out Thursday vs Lakers
    Alec Burks (shoulder) will not play against the Lakers on Thursday.

    Advice: Burks has been playing well in new coach Quin Snyder's new system and appears poised for a breakout season. His shoulder injury is minor so potential fantasy owners should keep an eye Burks as the later rounds approach in drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:55 pm
  • Paul Pierce getting some rest on Wed.
    Paul Pierce will be rested against Maccabi Haifa on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is not injured and tonight will allow the younger guys to get more minutes. Pierce will see minutes in the mid-20s this year, but he could still put up mid-round value while he's active. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:37 pm
  • Alec Burks is a game-time call for Thursday
    Alec Burks (shoulder) is a game-time decision to play against the Lakers on Thursday.

    Advice: He just has a bruised shoulder and the Jazz not ruling him out confirms he's just dealing with a minor issue. Burks has created a lot of buzz for fitting in nicely in coach Quin Snyder's system and he was also outstanding in the starting lineup last season. A breakout could be coming. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:29 am
  • Anthony Morrow dealing with a sore ankle
    Anthony Morrow will not practice on Wednesday due to a sore ankle and he will not play on Thursday.

    Advice: It doesn't sound serious and he's not in jeopardy of missing regular season action. Morrow will have a chance to contribute more on offense with Kevin Durant (foot) out, so he's worth a look late for fantasy teams needing 3-pointers. Perry Jones and Andre Roberson will get a lot of run on Thursday and could really help themselves with a big game. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:07 am
  • Anthony Morrow wakes up in win over MEM
    Anthony Morrow came off the bench to hit 5-of-6 shots and three 3-pointers on Tuesday, finishing with 19 points, three rebounds, one assist and a steal.

    Advice: He looks like the sixth man for the Thunder, but can also play small forward and could see a ton of minutes now that Kevin Durant has been shut down for a couple months with a broken foot. He's also a possibility to overtake Andre Roberson as the starting shooting guard, although that's probably not likely. We liked Morrow as a source of threes late in drafts, but he now has the potential to vie for the Sixth Man of the Year Award with the Durant news. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:05 pm
  • Alec Burks (shoulder) limited to non-contact
    Alec Burks (bruised left shoulder) participated in non-contact portions of Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: He's day-to-day and this shouldn't impact his status for Utah's season opener, which is still a few weeks away. Burks has quietly moved up fantasy draft boards during the preseason, going from an occasional flier pick to a solid late-round target. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:33 pm
  • Exum scores nine points with four assists
    Dante Exum scored nine points on 3-of-5 shooting (all threes) with one rebound, four assists and eight turnovers in 22 minutes off the bench against the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: Exum got some Chris Paul treatment and in general he continues to struggle with the pace of the NBA game, which is fine because he's just 19 years old and it has become increasingly clear that he won't be the No. 1 signal caller this year. Pick him up in Dynasty leagues, but in redraft formats he's restricted to deep leagues only. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:34 pm
  • Alec Burks (shoulder) out for Monday night
    Alec Burks (bruised left shoulder) will not play against the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: It doesn't sound serious and hopefully he'll be ready to go for the weekend. Burks has been one of the trendiest players we've been following this month and definitely will benefit in coach Quin Snyder's system. He's still a nice target in the late rounds. We'll let you know if any additional info emerges about the severity of his injury. As for tonight, Rodney Hood, Dahntay Jones or even Dante Exum could start. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 4:17 pm
  • Julius Randle plays poorly again
    Julius Randle made just 2-of-7 from the field for four points with six rebounds and three turnovers in 19 minutes.

    Advice: He's showing he's a rookie and he's not going to become a consistent NBA player over night. Coach Byron Scott said last week that the game is moving to fast for Randle, which means he's not going to be able to count on his isolation game like he did in college or at summer league. He's losing some momentum as a late-round target. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:23 am
  • Lakers destroyed 75-116 by Golden State
    Kobe Bryant made 3-of-13 field goals and finished an embarrassing 75-116 loss on Sunday with six points, one rebound and five assists.

    Advice: He did have four steals and one block, and he was very active in 24 minutes of action, but the short-handed Lakers were brutally outmatched by the Warriors. Kobe is as healthy as he's been in years and he'll need a Herculean season to keep the Lakers out of the Western Conference's cellar, and his ADP has crept north of 30 thanks to his impressive preseason. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 12, 9:10 pm
  • Ronnie Price logs team-high 33 minutes for LA
    Ronnie Price played a team-high 33 minutes off the Lakers' bench during Sunday's game, finishing with nine points, two boards, three assists and one steal.

    Advice: In a bizarre preseason twist, Price's shoe fell off during the game and he threw it at Andre Iguodala to disrupt his dribble. The move earned him a technical foul but shouldn't incur further punishment. If Steve Nash's health fails him, as it very well might, Price could find himself as L.A.'s default backup PG. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 12, 9:09 pm
  • Jamal Crawford hits six 3s, scores 23 points
    Jamal Crawford led the Clippers with 23 points, six 3-pointers, three rebounds and one assist off the bench on Sunday.

    Advice: J-Craw finished an efficient 8-of-13 from the field and even created one of his patented 4-point plays in the second half. The perennial Sixth-Man candidate is a reliable source of scoring and triples, as well as stellar FT percentages (86.6 percent last year) and lousy FG percentages (41.1 percent). Rotoworld.com
    Oct 12, 9:01 pm
  • Anthony Morrow now likely OKC's sixth man
    Anthony Morrow will now likely be OKC's sixth man with news of Kevin Durant's injury.

    Advice: Morrow has played well off the bench for OKC so far this preseason, and with Reggie Jackson a sure bet to enter the starting unit, Morrow will likely take on the role of the team's sixth man. He doesn't do much aside from drain 3-pointers, but during the month of April last season Morrow averaged 15.1 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 1.6 three-pointers over 30 minutes of action. With an increased role in OKC, Morrow looks like a decent late-round selection in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 12, 8:43 am
  • Brandon Rush says knee is feeling pretty good
    Brandon Rush stated during a recent interview that his knee is feeling "pretty good."

    Advice: "It’s feeling pretty good, no swelling, no soreness. Everything feels pretty good," said Rush. Rush is a solid defender, and a terrific shooter from beyond the arc, however he's not likely to average enough minutes for standard league consideration. Feel free to ignore Rush come draft day. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 12, 7:23 am
  • Hornacek unsure of P.J. Tucker's role?
    Coach Jeff Hornacek said deciphering P.J. Tucker's role is "hard."

    Advice: "It was good for us last year to have the energy right from the start of the game.," Hornacek said. "You kind of set the tone in the beginning." Interesting. The coach could just be talking about Tucker's suspension, but we'll still keep an eye on this situation. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 11, 12:05 pm
  • Anthony Morrow excels off the bench
    Anthony Morrow shot the ball very well off the bench on Friday, scoring 21 points with one block, one turnover and four 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

    Advice: If the Thunder can get this kind of line out of Morrow, they're going to be very happy. It's still unclear what they're going to do with their sharp-shooting swingman, so it'll be hard to draft him in most formats. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 10, 9:26 pm
  • Quin Snyder wants Burks to be aggressive
    Coach Quin Snyder said he wants Alec Burks to be aggressive this season.

    Advice: "Taking the ball to the basket is his strength," Snyder said. "So we want him to look to make plays. We want him to suck people in." Among non-point guards playing at least 20 minutes per game, only Eric Bledsoe had more drives per 48 minutes than Burks las season. He also shot a respectable 47.3 percent on drives, but his teammates only added 1.8 points per game off his drives. He's a fantastic target and could break out in the new. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 10, 6:54 am
  • Scott: Julius Randle looked lost on Thursday
    Julius Randle "looked lost" for most of the Thursday loss to the Warriors, according to coach Byron Scott.

    Advice: The Warriors were moving the ball a lot and it was something Randle was not used to. "In the second half, I thought he was better," Scott said. "But I thought the first half the game was too fast for him." Randle admitted he was also forcing shots in the loss, which explains why he only shot 4-of-12 from the field in 18 minutes. Carlos Boozer looked much better, so Randle will need to turn it around next time out. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 10, 6:42 am
  • Carlos Boozer scores 16 points vs. GSW
    Carlos Boozer scored 16 points with three rebounds, two assists and two steals against the Warriors on Thursday.

    Advice: He fared much better than his six-point game in the opener. Boozer had a minor injury while on defense, but it didn't cost him any playing time. If you're fine with no blocks or assists from Boozer, he's worth a look late in drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 9, 10:23 pm
  • Kobe Bryant continues to look healthy
    Kobe Bryant looked great again on Thursday with 15 points, two rebounds, three assists, three steals and two turnovers in 23 minutes.

    Advice: He had a great strip of Stephen Curry and went coast-to-coast for the dunk in the first half. Bryant said in an interview on NBATV that his knee and Achilles injuries aren't even in his head when he's out there, so we should probably believe him based on his performance in the preseason so far. He's probably going to cost you a pick at the turn of the second and third rounds of drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 9, 10:20 pm
  • Enes Kanter double-doubles on Thursday
    Enes Kanter double-doubled against the Blazers on Thursday with 16 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and five turnovers on 8-of-13 from the field.

    Advice: He had a solid game on Tuesday and isn't losing ground to Rudy Gobert just yet. Although, Gobert had a massive offensive rebound late in this game and played well with five points, six boards and one block in 19 minutes. Kanter is worth a look late and is more of a two-category player. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 9, 9:44 pm
  • Alec Burks scores 20 points on Thursday
    Alec Burks scored 20 points against the Blazers on Thursday with one rebound, two assists and two steals on 7-of-12 from the field.

    Advice: He missed a couple big free throws down the stretch, but looked good throughout the game. Burks has solidified his role as a starter and he'll see a sizable increase in playing time -- he played 37 minutes tonight. Burks is a fantastic target late in drafts and his arrow is pointing up.
