  • Jerian Grant is confident he will break slump
    Jerian Grant is confident that he will be break out of his shooting slump soon.

    Advice: "I can get to the basket when I want. I got to finish when I get there," Grant said. "My shot will come. I'm not a knockdown spot-up guy, but I can shoot the ball." Grant is barely shooting over 25 percent from the field over his last 10 games and his minutes have started to take a hit because Jose Calderon has been playing much better. Unlike the beginning of the season, this doesn't feel like much of a position battle anymore and owners who are hoping for him to have a larger role may have to wait a while. 52 minutes ago
  • C.J. Watson (calf) doubtful Friday vs. Bucks
    C.J. Watson (calf) is not expected to play Friday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: "I'm trying to get better," Watson said. "Hopefully, I'll be back sooner than later, but it's very frustrating just to be able to sit on the bench and not be able to help the guys and be on the court with them." Head coach Scott Skiles said that Watson recently went through some on court work, but he was pulled from the activity due to a noticeable limp. Friday will mark Watson's eighth consecutive game on the sidelines, and he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Yesterday, 1:29 pm
  • Aaron Brooks won't travel to Indianapolis
    Aaron Brooks (hamstring) will not travel to the team to Indianapolis, according to Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg.

    Advice: This rules Brooks out for Friday's game against the Pacers, but could put him in play for his targeted November 30 return against the Spurs. With Derrick Rose healthy, Brooks shouldn't be owned in standard fantasy leagues even when he returns to health. Yesterday, 9:51 am
  • Neto has a good game vs. CP3
    Raul Neto had one of his best games of the season against the Clippers on Wednesday with 10 points, one rebound, six assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Trey Burke (back) suffered an injury tonight, so there were more minutes up for grabs. Neto has meshed pretty well with the other starters, but he's still going to lose point guard minutes to Alec Burks. Neto moves into the conversation for 20-team leagues while Burke is out. Wednesday, 11:27 pm
  • Shane Larkin excels w/ Jack in foul trouble
    Shane Larkin had 10 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, six assists, one steal and two turnovers in 25 minutes vs. OKC on Wednesday.

    Advice: Jarrett Jack was in foul trouble, which shifted more playing time to Larkin, who came in averaging 17.5 minutes per game. He's been solid when given extended opportunities, but is restricted to deep-league appeal while Jack is healthy. Wednesday, 10:03 pm
  • J.J. Barea (ankle) likely to miss time
    J.J. Barea (ankle) said he rolled his ankle "pretty good" on Wednesday.

    Advice: "I don't know the severity of it," coach Rick Carlisle said. "But he's in there with an ice machine on it. That's never good." It sounds like Barea is going to miss some time, which means more minutes are headed to Devin Harris and Raymond Felton. Wednesday, 9:34 pm

  • Patrick Beverley gets 19 minutes in return
    Patrick Beverley played 19 minutes in his return to the lineup on Wednesday, scoring four points with two rebounds, two assists and one turnover.

    Advice: It was hardly a good game, but this is a positive for Beverley because Ty Lawson is moving out of the rotation. After the holiday, Beverley should be considered as the favorite to start against the 76ers on Friday. Wednesday, 9:29 pm
  • Jason Terry gets 29 minutes
    Jason Terry scored 13 points against the Grizzlies on Wednesday with two rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

    Advice: His minutes will be trending down, but apparently he's ahead of Ty Lawson in the rotation. At best, Terry is probably only looking at minutes in the high teens once Patrick Beverley is back to 100 percent. Wednesday, 9:26 pm
  • Raymond Felton logs 37 minutes w/ Parsons out
    With Chandler Parsons resting on Wednesday, Raymond Felton filled in as a starter and posted five points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, five assists and one steal.

    Advice: He committed only one turnover in 37 minutes and the 11-year veteran continues to give the Mavs solid minutes when called upon. He's not a lock for value even when starting, however, and isn't a viable option while averaging 20-25 minutes in his typical reserve role. Wednesday, 9:24 pm
  • Devin Harris scores 11 points in return
    Devin Harris returned on Wednesday with 11 points, three boards and two turnovers before fouling out in 16 minutes vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: He shot 4-of-5 from the field, including one 3-pointer, and even played as a makeshift SF vs. Kawhi Leonard for stretches since Chandler Parsons (rest) was unavailable. He gets kudos for taking on that challenge, but remains a non-factor in all but the deepest fantasy leagues. Wednesday, 9:23 pm
  • Jared Cunningham struggles in temporary start
    Jared Cunningham started for the Cavs on Wednesday, but he was benched at halftime and finished with six points on 2-of-10 shooting, two 3-pointers, three boards and two assists in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Matthew Dellavedova (leg) was out and Mo Williams (ankle) was on a minute-limit, so Cunningham was the healthiest option for coach David Blatt. He didn't have to orchestrate the offense with LeBron James and J.R. Smith on the court, taking pressure off him in his second NBA start, but he still looked out of his depth. Delly and Mo are both day-to-day, so there's no reason to grab Cunningham. Wednesday, 8:08 pm
  • J.J. Barea (ankle) will not return
    J.J. Barea suffered sprained left ankle on Wednesday and will not return.

    Advice: He was in a lot of pain and it did not look good. Barea has been a useful combo guard and was playing 20.3 minutes per game, so the Mavs would miss him. If he's out, there would be more run for Ray Felton and Devin Harris. Justin Anderson or John Jenkins could slide into his rotation spot. Barea left the game with seven points, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer. There's really no need to make a speculative add unless you're in a deep league. Wednesday, 7:30 pm

  • Gary Neal scores 18 points in futile effort
    Gary Neal stayed hot vs. the Hornets on Wednesday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-13 shooting with two 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: He played 28 minutes and hardly missed a beat after dropping 23 points vs. the Pacers on Tuesday. Unfortunately, Neal has yet to play 30 minutes in a game this season and he's not worth your attention in standard leagues while Bradley Beal (17 points in 38 minutes) is healthy. Wednesday, 6:40 pm
  • Raymond Felton starts w/ Parsons resting
    Raymond Felton will start Wednesday's game in place of Chandler Parsons.

    Advice: Felton has had a handful of nice games as a fill-in starter this year, but he gets a tough matchup vs. the Spurs' defense tonight. Parsons will return to action vs. the Nuggets on Saturday, so Felton's starting gig will once again be fleeting. Wednesday, 5:37 pm
  • Devin Harris (rest) back for Wednesday
    Devin Harris is playing on Wednesday.

    Advice: He should have his normal minutes and perhaps even more with Chandler Parsons (rest) out tonight. Wednesday, 5:15 pm
  • Jason Terry confirmed as starter
    Jason Terry will start against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: He might have a short leash tonight with Pat Beverley (ankle) returning. Fantasy owners might want to stash Beverley, but all three point guards should be benched. Wednesday, 5:03 pm
  • Jared Cunningham will start Wednesday vs. TOR
    Jared Cunningham will start Wednesday's game against the Raptors, and Mo Williams (ankle) will come off the bench.

    Advice: Coach David Blatt wants to monitor Mo Williams' minutes in his first game back following a three-game absence with an ankle injury, and with Matthew Dellavedova (calf) out, Cunningham became Blatt's only solution for keeping Mo's minutes down. Cunningham put up a goose egg during his last start, so he's too risky to deploy in daily leagues. Wednesday, 4:29 pm
  • Pat Beverley says he's 'definitely playing'
    Pat Beverley (ankle) said he's "definitely playing" against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll be coming off the bench, but we still don't know if he's going to start after tonight. We'll have another update shortly, but expect Beverley to get minutes in the teens to low 20s tonight. Jason Terry will lose some run and maybe Ty Lawson, too. Wednesday, 3:57 pm
  • Spencer Dinwiddie (knee) out Wednesday
    Spencer Dinwiddie (sore left knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

    Advice: Steve Blake will act as Detroit's backup point guard with Dinwiddie sidelined, but he won't get enough minutes to matter in most leagues. Wednesday, 3:25 pm
  • Pat Beverley (ankle) will be a game-time call
    Pat Beverley (ankle) is a game-time decision to face the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: Beverley is a tough guy and if it's up to him, he's playing. He has a decent chance to start tonight and has some value in deeper leagues. Jason Terry would play less and possibly Ty Lawson. Wednesday, 3:21 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova (calf) out vs. Raptors
    Matthew Dellavedova (calf) will not play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

    Advice: With the Cavs set to manage Mo Williams' minutes tonight, that means we should see a lot of Jared Cunningham. The Cavs will also be giving heavy minutes to J.R. Smith at the two. Cunningham is obviously a risky play in DFS tonight. Wednesday, 3:05 pm
  • C.J. Watston (calf) out again on Wednesday
    C.J. Watson (calf) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: That means Shabazz Napier is the backup point guard. Although, Victor Oladipo coming off the bench likely means he gets more minutes at the one as a combo guard. Watson has very little value after missing his seventh game. Wednesday, 2:27 pm
  • Bryce Cotton headed to the Suns
    The Suns are in the process of calling up Bryce Cotton.

    Advice: It's not a big deal, but this isn't a good sign of Eric Bledsoe (knee) playing tonight. Of course, the Suns could just be playing it safe here. Cotton would still be behind Ronnie Price, so he's not a pickup in any league yet. Wednesday, 12:31 pm
  • Beverley (ankle) goes through shootaround
    Patrick Beverley (ankle) was a full participant during shootaround, but he remains questionable for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Beverley seems on track to make his return on Wednesday, but he's going to come off the bench and his minutes will be monitored, making him an unattractive option in most leagues. Beverley could conceivably start for the Rockets at some point, but he's likely headed for a three-way timeshare with Jason Terry and Ty Lawson; meaning at best he could only be viewed as a steals and 3-point specialist in deep leagues. Wednesday, 9:14 am
  • Matthew Dellavedova (calf) a game-time call
    Matthew Dellavedova (calf) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's game against Toronto.

    Advice: Dellavedova's value is set to take a hit tonight anyway with the return of Mo Williams (ankle), and with him heading towards a game-time decision, he's far too risky to consider using in DFS. Williams could be forced into heavy minutes if Delly is unable to give it a go. Stay tuned. Wednesday, 8:02 am
  • Patrick Beverley's minutes will be monitored
    Interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that he will monitor Patrick Beverley's (ankle) minutes upon his return.

    Advice: Beverley is questionable to play Wednesday against the Grizzlies, but if he does get on to the court following a five-game absence, he will continue to come off the bench and Bickerstaff will be cautious with his minutes. Bickerstaff said he likes the leadership that Jason Terry brings, which is why Terry will continue to start, and it's looking like this could turn into a three-way timeshare at the point guard slot in Houston between JET, Ty Lawson and Beverley; which isn't great from a fantasy standpoint. Wednesday, 7:43 am
  • Raymond Felton scores 16 off Mavs' bench
    Raymond Felton hit 5-of-8 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 24 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Devin Harris got the night off for rest and Deron Williams was benched in the fourth quarter with the score out of hand. This was just his fifth game in double-digit scoring this season, so as long as Williams, Harris and J.J. Barea are healthy, Felton will have a tough time doing things like this consistently. Tuesday, 7:53 pm
  • J.J. Barea scores 16 off Mavs' bench
    J.J. Barea played 27 minutes off the Mavs' bench and hit 5-of-10 shots and zero 3-pointers for 16 points and four assists in Tuesday's loss to Memphis.

    Advice: The minutes and points were a season high for JJB, who got run down the stretch in a blowout. It didn't hurt that Devin Harris got the night off, either, but Barea will have to perform like this more consistently to be owned in most leagues. Tuesday, 7:50 pm
    Player Note
    J.J. Barea Dal - PG,SG
  • Gary Neal scores 23 off Wizards bench
    Gary Neal scored a season-high 23 points in 29 minutes off the Wizards' bench on Tuesday, finishing with three rebounds, a steal and five 3-pointers on 8-of-14 shooting.

    Advice: This came out of nowhere and John Wall and Bradley Beal are healthy, meaning this was a fluke. Leave him on waivers for now. Neal's strong play limited Ramon Sessions to just 10 points, a 3-pointer and two steals on 4-of-5 shooting in 17 minutes. The two guards are going to split minutes off the bench for Washington, making both of them very hard to trust in fantasy. Tuesday, 6:50 pm
  • Devin Harris (rest) will not play on Tuesday
    Devin Harris (rest) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: He isn't dealing with an injury and this is just a scheduled rest day, but he probably wasn't owned in most leagues anyways. Harris is averaging 22.4 minutes per game this season, so expect J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton to see a few more minutes on Tuesday. Tuesday, 4:33 pm
  • Patrick Beverley (ankle) practices on Tuesday
    Patrick Beverley (ankle) practiced on Tuesday, and has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Beverley is on track to play Wednesday, although interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that Jason Terry will still be the starting point guard upon Beverley's return. JET as the starting point is not a trend that's likely to continue once Beverley is fully up to speed, but this is very bad news for Ty Lawson owners as his minutes will head even further south with Patrick active. Beverley won't score a lot of points, but he should be able to do enough with steals and 3-pointers to warrant a roster spot in deeper leagues. Tuesday, 12:13 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova looks great again
    Matthew Dellavedova scored 15 points against the Magic on Monday with nine assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was awesome and has looked like a whole new player this season. Dellavedova is just keeping the seat warm for Kyrie Irving (knee) and he'll likely move back to the bench when Mo Williams (ankle) can return, which can be as soon as this week. He's more of a short-term add despite his terrific play in the past week. Monday, 8:04 pm
  • Matthew Dellavedova will start
    Matthew Dellavedova (ankle) will start against the Magic on Monday.

    Advice: He is likely going to have his minutes monitored today, so he'll be a risky player to use in DFS. Dellavedova only has short-term value this week. Jared Cunningham could also get more minutes tonight. Monday, 2:24 pm
  • Pat Beverley up in the air for Wednesday
    Pat Beverley (ankle) will go through practice on Tuesday and coach B.J. Bickerstaff said "we'll see" regarding his status for Wednesday.

    Advice: The Rockets rested Beverley on Monday after they gave him extra work on Sunday. Beverley will likely be in the starting lineup and should find minutes in the mid 20s. He's worth a look in 14-team leagues. Monday, 12:46 pm
  • Pat Beverley (ankle) doesn't practice Monday
    Patrick Beverley (ankle) did not practice on Monday.

    Advice: He was on track to practice today, so perhaps he won't be able to play on Wednesday. Beverley is likely going to start for the Rockets and he could have value in 14-team leagues off the bat. If you need steals or treys, give him a look. Monday, 11:38 am
  • Update: Dellavedova expected to play Monday
    Updating a previous item, Matthew Dellavedova (left ankle/leg) is expected to play on Monday.

    Advice: It's still not yet clear if Delly will start at point guard with Mo Williams (right ankle/leg) doubtful or if Jared Cunningham will get the nod after practicing with the starters on Monday morning, but it would be surprising if Dellavedova isn't with the starting group if he's feeling well enough to play. At less than 100 percent and staring at a potential timeshare, Delly's DFS ceiling isn't all that high. Monday, 9:05 am
  • Dellavedova has an unspecified ankle injury
    Matthew Dellavedova is "dealing with an ankle injury."

    Advice: It's not clear what type of injury Delly is currently dealing with, but he apparently hurt himself in Saturday's win over Atlanta, and we wonder how Kyle Korver feels about that development. Moving on, iff Dellavedova is forced to sit out, Jared Cunningham would be in line to draw the start at point guard. Unless David Blatt wants Cunningham to play major minutes, the Cavs are going to have to get creative at point guard with Mo Williams (leg) also doubtful to suit up. Monday, 8:22 am
  • Jared Cunningham could start on Monday night?
    Jared Cunningham was spotted wearing a starter's jersey at shootaround in advance of Cleveland's game vs. the Magic on Monday.

    Advice: David Blatt talked about Matthew Dellavedova dealing with an unspecified ankle injury, and with Mo Williams (right ankle/leg) doubtful, Cunningham would be the next man up. However, Delly is expected to play, so Cunningham is going to have a tough time carving out value regardless of his role on Monday. Monday, 8:17 am
  • C.J. Watson (calf) listed as out for Monday
    C.J. Watson (calf) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Watson is dealing with a strained left calf and hasn't played since Nov. 9, but it's not a good sign that the Magic ruled him out so quickly. Elfrid Payton's minutes have been on the rise lately, meaning Shabazz Napier will likely see minutes in the teens as the backup point guard on Monday. Sunday, 7:38 am
  • Jerami Grant sores four points
    Jerian Grant missed all seven shots from the field and made four at the line on Saturday against the Heat, adding six rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 30 minutes.

    Advice: He's just better at power forward and he counted on his jumper too much tonight. Grant has a decent upside for multiple-category upside, but his deficiencies on offense will make him a headache. For DFS, it makes sense to use him against worse defenses. Saturday, 8:48 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova slows down in a win
    Matthew Dellavedova scored 12 points with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Advice: He was very good once again and continues to exceed expectations. His body of work suggests he won't be this good on Monday, but feel free to give him a look with Mo Williams (ankle) doubtful for that one. Dellavedova only has short-term value in most cases. Saturday, 7:27 pm
  • Patrick Beverley (ankle) targeting Wednesday
    Patrick Beverley (ankle) is on track to practice on Monday and is targeting Wednesday's game vs. the Grizzlies for his return.

    Advice: Beverley suffered the ankle injury on Nov. 13 and hasn't played since, so this great news for the Rockets. Ty Lawson was recently demoted to the bench because of poor play and Jason Terry has been running the point in the first unit, but Beverley could very well be starting when he gets back. Saturday, 3:31 pm
  • Jerian Grant losing almost all momentum
    Jerian Grant played just 13 minutes against the Thunder on Friday with four points, four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He's lost all that momentum from earlier this month. Grant hasn't cracked 20 minutes in five of his last six games and the Knicks are 7-6 on the season, so his stash appeal has decreased. If there is anything promising on the wire, feel free to cut Grant. Friday, 10:48 pm
  • Aaron Brooks (hamstring) out two more games
    Updating a previous report, Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg said that Aaron Brooks will remain sidelined for at least the next "couple games."

    Advice: That means the earliest Brooks could return would be November 30 vs. San Antonio. Kirk Hinrich will start for however long Brooks and Derrick Rose (ankle) are sidelined, with E'Twaun Moore seeing some increased opportunity for playing time off the bench. Neither Hinrich nor Moore are worth picking up in most formats with Rose seemingly close to making his return. Friday, 6:12 pm
  • Aaron Brooks (hamstring) targeting Tuesday
    Aaron Brooks (hamstring) is hopeful he'll be able to play Tuesday vs. the Trail Blazers.

    Advice: Brooks was spotted walking around without a limp on Friday, and he was also able to get in some work in the weight room, all positive signs regarding a potential Tuesday return. However, Derrick Rose (ankle) is also getting close to making his way back to the court, so there's not much reason to pick up Brooks in most leagues. Friday, 5:25 pm
  • Pat Beverley (ankle) still out for Friday
    Patrick Beverley (ankle) will not play on Friday against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: The Rockets will have to go with Jason Terry and Ty Lawson at the point guard spot for a little longer. Beverley has no timetable to return and isn't worth stashing due to a lower upside. Friday, 11:20 am
  • Delly Dishes: Matt Dellavedova has 13 assists
    Matthew Dellavedova handed out a career-high 13 assists against the Bucks on Thursday, adding seven points, one rebound and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Mo Williams (leg) did not play tonight, so Dellavedova got all the minutes he could handle. He actually looked horrible in the start of this game, but he got it going in the second quarter and beyond. Williams could miss Saturday, so Dellavedova could have short-term value. Although, he won't be worth much in about a week. Thursday, 9:03 pm
  • Aaron Brooks (hamstring) out Friday vs. GSW
    Aaron Brooks (left hamstring) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Warriors.

    Advice: This was the expected move, and with Derrick Rose (ankle) on the doubtful side of his questionable tag, it looks like Kirk Hinrich could log heavy minutes as Chicago's starting point guard on Friday. Jimmy Butler will be busy on offense if Rose is unavailable, and he'd make for a strong play in DFS. Thursday, 1:17 pm
  • Aaron Brooks (hamstring) most likely out Fri
    Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg said that Aaron Brooks (hamstring) will "most likely" be out for Friday's game against the Warriors.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like he's going to play, and with Derrick Rose (ankle) also unlikely for Friday, Kirk Hinrich could be forced into heavy minutes for Chicago. However, Jimmy Butler will be the true beneficiary for however long Rose and Brooks are sidelined. Thursday, 11:58 am
  • C.J. Watson misses Thursday practice
    C.J. Watson (sore left calf) did not practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Watson has missed four straight games and this news doesn't bode well for his availability against the Kings on Saturday. Watson should be ignored in almost all fantasy leagues. Thursday, 10:07 am
  • Aaron Brooks looking doubtful for Friday
    Aaron Brooks (left hamstring) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Warriors.

    Advice: Brooks left Wednesday's game against the Suns in the third quarter and didn't sound hopeful for Friday after the game. "Thought I could play through it," Brooks said. "Reaggravated it, but it’s not too bad; it’s a strain. Wake up [Thursday], see how it is, how it feels. I’m not used to this. I’ll pray on it and hopefully I’ll wake up and everything is OK. Just being cold, coming off the bench, strained it, being old." We'll keep an eye on Brooks, but with Derrick Rose (ankle) dealing with an injury, Kirk Hinrich could see big minutes on Friday. Thursday, 6:25 am
  • Aaron Brooks leaves game w/ hamstring strain
    Aaron Brooks strained his left hamstring during Wednesday's game and he will not return.

    Advice: He tweaked his hamstring in the third quarter and re-injured it in the fourth quarter, heading into the locker room with a very pronounced limp. With Derrick Rose (ankle) already on the sidelines, E'Twaun Moore and Kirk Hinrich will have to man the PG position in the short-term -- hamstring injuries are touchy and it wouldn't be surprising to see Brooks miss at least a few games. Wednesday, 9:44 pm
  • Jason Terry scores five in start
    Jason Terry started on Wednesday against the Blazers with five points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Ty Lawson is quickly falling out of favor with the Rockets and he might only be getting minutes in the teens at this rate. Terry is probably just keeping the seat warm for Patrick Beverley (ankle), but he doesn't have a timetable to return. Terry is only worth a look in deep leagues for short-term value. Wednesday, 8:43 pm
  • Shane Larkin hands out six dimes in road loss
    Shane Larkin dished out six assists to go along with six points and one steal in 20 minutes vs. the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He had a career-high-tying eight dimes on opening night but has been quiet ever since, and we're not reading into tonight's solid performance. He's not worth owning while averaging 15-18 minutes behind Jarrett Jack. Wednesday, 7:13 pm
  • Jason Terry starting, Ty Lawson to the bench
    Jason Terry will start Wednesday's game against the Blazers, sending Ty Lawson to the bench.

    Advice: This is the first lineup change by interim head coach J.B. Bickerstaff, but it was one that was being discussed prior to Kevin McHale's firing. Lawson has been painfully ineffective as a starter, but perhaps he can get things to move in the right direction by being given more ball handling responsibilities with the second-unit. As for Terry, he could chip in a couple treys as a starter, but he's well past his days of being relevant in most leagues. If Lawson has more success as a reserve, Patrick Beverley (ankle) will likely enter the starting five once he's healthy. Wednesday, 4:45 pm
  • C.J. Watson (calf) out Wednesday vs. MIN
    C.J. Watson (sore left calf) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Shabazz Napier will see some increased opportunity sans Watson, but with Victor Oladipo (concussion) set to return on Wednesday, Napier is unlikely to earn enough minutes to matter in most leagues. Wednesday, 8:58 am
  • Shane Larkin scores 14 in 14 minutes
    Shane Larkin scored 14 points in 14 minutes against the Hawks on Tuesday with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: His minutes have just been hanging around 20 as he backs up Jarrett Jack. Larkin has clearly pulled ahead for the backup point guard job, so he would likely be worth a look if Jack needed to miss time. He's only a handcuff in 20-team leagues. Tuesday, 8:47 pm
  • Spencer Dinwiddie's minutes trending up?
    Spencer Dinwiddie could again see extended minutes during Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

    Advice: Dinwiddie went through Tuesday's shootaround as the backup point guard, and it looks like Stan Van Gundy is ready to give the second-year guard some increased opportunity with how badly Steve Blake has struggled this season. That being said, Dinwiddie is unlikely to exceed the 20-minute mark as a reserve, so there's no reason to give him a second thought in standard fantasy leagues. Tuesday, 1:05 pm
