  • Cleanthony Early nowhere near the rotation
    Cleanthony Early played six minutes in Sunday's overtime loss to Houston.

    Advice: Early is nowhere near sniffing the rotation, and this will likely be his last blurb for a while. 29 minutes ago
  • Kevin Seraphin finding his place with Knicks
    Kevin Seraphin is beginning to find his place with the Knicks.

    Advice: "I think he’s getting more comfortable being on this team and understanding what it is we’re asking our big men to do offensively and defensively," Derek Fisher said. Seraphin played a season-high 32 minutes on Sunday with 14 points, seven boards, four dimes, a steal and four blocks, but his role and production is too volatile to be relied upon. 30 minutes ago
  • Bad back impacting Mike Dunleavy's sleep
    Mike Dunleavy's bad back has impacted his ability to sleep through the night.

    Advice: Dunleavy, who is heading to the doctor on Monday after renewed soreness following offseason surgery, doesn't sound close to returning. Forced to choose between hotel beds that are too soft or sleeping on the rock hard floor, Dunleavy admitted that "it's a little of [pain management]." Dunleavy hasn't played in six months, and there is no timetable for his return. 34 minutes ago
  • Nike Stauskas says knee is feeling fine now
    Nik Stauskas said his left knee is feeling "fine."

    Advice: Stauskas has no structural damage, but he's now dealt with a left knee contusion as well as a right tibia stress reaction this season. Although he's had a golden opportunity with the Sixers, the shooting guard has failed to take advantage in any way. He's incapable of helping your fantasy team when he's shooting 32.9 percent from the floor, including 28.3 percent from distance. 53 minutes ago
  • Cody Zeller returned to action on Sunday November 29. Yesterday, 11:57 pm
  • Report: Wizards to sign center Ryan Hollins
    The Wizards have reportedly agreed to a deal with free agent C Ryan Hollins.

    Advice: Nene recently aggravated his strained left calf, so Hollins will serve as emergency depth behind Marcin Gortat at center. There's no reason to approach Hollins for fantasy purposes. Yesterday, 9:49 pm

  • Ian Mahinmi scores eight with 10 boards
    Ian Mahinmi played well with eight points, 10 boards, two assists and two blocks in 27 minutes in a win over the Lakers on Sunday.

    Advice: The Lakers intentionally put him on the charity stripe in the fourth quarter and he responded by sinking four straight free throws. He was shooting just 35.3 percent from the stripe coming into Sunday's game, so it was nice to see him step up when it mattered the most. Mahinmi has been a pleasant surprise this season and his game has come a long away, but he's a low-end asset at best. Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Nick Young scores 22 points in 2nd half
    After going scoreless in the first half, Nick Young erupted after the break and finished with 22 points, two boards, one assist and six 3-pointers in 27 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: The Lakers couldn't generate any offense in the first half, but Young stepped up down the stretch and certainly wasn't shy on offense with 14 shot attempts on the night. Swaggy P was held to single-digit scoring in his previous four games, so we would need to see him do this again before we can recommend an add in most leagues. He's a low-end 3-point specialist until further notice, but he could benefit if Kobe Bryant goes down at some point this season. Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Patrick Beverley racks up five steals Sunday
    Patrick Beverley racked up five steals in 34 minutes during Sunday's overtime road win, adding seven points, three rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: He turned the ball over just once and Houston is 2-0 with Bev in the starting lineup. He's never been a good source of assists, but contributes enough 3-pointers and steals to be worth owning now that the starting PG job is his to lose. Yesterday, 8:25 pm
  • Marcus Thornton gets hot late in OT road win
    Marcus Thornton recovered from a pair of quiet games to score 18 points vs. the Knicks on Sunday, hitting 6-of-11 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs with two 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Thornton hit a clutch 3-pointer that forced overtime, then proceeded to score seven points during the extra period. His line would have been unremarkable had this game ended in regulation, and he should remain on the waiver wire. Yesterday, 8:19 pm
  • Kevin Seraphin racks up season-highs vs. HOU
    Kevin Seraphin set season-highs across the board vs. Houston, notching 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting, seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and four blocks in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He got hot and Derek Fisher rode him down the stretch, with the result that starter Robin Lopez (15 minutes) was rooted to the bench. Owners in standard leagues should only glance at Seraphin despite this solid outing -- he's cracked 20 minutes twice all season and his matchup-based role is as mercurial as they come. Yesterday, 8:17 pm
  • Wayne Ellington scores season-high 12 points
    Wayne Ellington scored a season-high 12 points in Sunday's win vs. the Pistons, making 5-of-7 shots with one 3-pointer, six rebounds and one block.

    Advice: All of his points came in a second-half flurry, and his effective offense earned him 24 minutes on the court, his highest playing time in six games. Ellington isn't a viable fantasy player while Joe Johnson (13 points in 39 minutes) is healthy. Yesterday, 6:09 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) plays well in return
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) had 10 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one assist in Sunday's loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: He made all four of his shot attempts in 22 minutes of action, and looked good considering he'd missed the past four games. Sam Mitchell has been tinkering with his rotation lately and there are no guarantees that Bjelica will average a solid 26-28 minutes per game, but he's worth holding onto while we find out. Yesterday, 4:36 pm
  • Cody Zeller picks up four fouls in 16 minutes
    Cody Zeller started the second-half of Sunday's win over the Bucks with Al Jefferson going down with a calf injury, but only managed to put up two points, one rebound and one assist in 16 minutes of play.

    Advice: He also tallied four fouls in his 16 minutes of playing time, which is kind of impressive. Zeller is not a stat sheet stuffer and he struggles to even produce marginal stats when given the minutes, so while his playing time could go up if Jefferson is forced to miss time, he doesn't warrant a pickup in most formats. Yesterday, 3:47 pm
  • Evan Turner is not on the injury report
    Evan Turner is not on the injury report prior to Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

    Advice: He left Friday's game vs. the Wizards with an apparent eye injury, but it was considered very minor and he shouldn't have any limitations tonight. Yesterday, 2:47 pm
  • Donald Sloan (illness) active Sunday vs. DET
    Donald Sloan (illness) will be available to play Sunday against the Pistons.

    Advice: Sloan spent Saturday's game on the sidelines with an illness, but he has since recovered. He's not a part of the rotation, so there are no guarantees he leave the bench tonight. Yesterday, 2:03 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will play on Sunday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will be available to play Sunday against the Clippers.

    Advice: Bjelica will return from a four-game absence on Sunday, although he's likely going to be eased back into the rotation. Owners in most leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with Bjelica as he was in a pretty bad slump before going down with the injury. Adreian Payne and Shabazz Muhammad's fantasy values will take a hit with the return of Bjelica, and Gorgui Dieng could also lose some minutes. Yesterday, 11:34 am
  • Mike Dunleavy (back) will visit doctor Monday
    Mike Dunleavy (back) is experiencing some soreness and will visit a doctor on Monday.

    Advice: Dunleavy has been sidelined for nine weeks, but this report is a little worrying and it doesn't sound like he is close to a return. We won't speculate on a timetable, but we should know more on Monday afternoon. Tony Snell and Doug McDermott will continue to fill the void for the Bulls. Yesterday, 10:32 am
  • Cody Zeller, Frank Kaminsky will play Sunday
    Cody Zeller (right shoulder contusion) and Frank Kaminsky (back) will play on Sunday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Zeller has been losing playing time to Kaminsky lately, so he isn't worth using in most leagues. The good news is that his shoulder is fine, so Marvin Williams won't have to log a ton of minutes at power forward on Sunday. Yesterday, 9:30 am
  • Bjelica (knee) expected to play Sunday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Bjelica has missed the last four games due to a knee contusion, but he appears to be all set to return to the court on Sunday. He was in a slump prior to going to down with the injury, so it makes some sense to see if he turn things around before adding him in standard leagues. With Bjelica expected to be available, Adreian Payne could fall out of the rotation. Yesterday, 9:01 am
  • Trevor Booker puts up big double-double
    Trevor Booker was terrific in a start on Saturday against the Pelicans with 13 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Derrick Favors (personal) didn't play, so Cook Book got all he could eat. Favors isn't expected to be out long, so Booker's value figures to be low on Monday against the Warriors. Saturday, 9:44 pm
  • Trevor Booker will start on Saturday vs. NOP
    Trevor Booker will start on Saturday vs. the Pelicans in place of Derrick Favors (personal).

    Advice: Booker is averaging just 3.3 points and 5.2 boards in 19.6 minutes per game this season, so he obviously doesn't have much upside. Considering he will be going up against Anthony Davis, it will be tough to rely on Booker outside of the deepest of leagues. Saturday, 5:11 pm
  • Donald Sloan out on Saturday
    Donald Sloan (illness) will not play on Saturday against the Cavs.

    Advice: Hopefully it's just a cold. Sloan is not in the rotation. Saturday, 3:18 pm
  • Cody Zeller (shoulder) questionable Sunday
    Cody Zeller (right shoulder contusion) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Zeller had surgery on his right shoulder back in April, but it isn't clear if these two issues are related. Zeller is currently losing ground to Frank Kaminsky (back) in the rotation, so this isn't encouraging for his outlook. Expect Marvin Williams to be very busy if Zeller can't play on Sunday. Saturday, 10:22 am
  • Pat Beverley gets 32 minutes in start
    Patrick Beverley played 32 minutes in his first start of the season on Friday, scoring five points with two rebounds, four assists, one steal, three blocks and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: This is a typical Pat-Bev line, but his owners will definitely take it. If he's going to get minutes close to 30, he should have enough value in standard leagues. Of course, he's been injury prone, so he's not a must-grab player or anything. Friday, 10:41 pm
  • Nik Stauskas returns, gets 15 minutes
    Nik Stauskas returned on Friday with four points with two rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Rockets.

    Advice: He was not supposed to play today or this weekend at all, but the 76ers put him on the court. Stauskas has not been very good despite given ample opportunity to shine, so he's not a terrific asset until he turns it around and shows some consistency. Friday, 10:17 pm
  • Cody Zeller gets 15 minutes
    Cody Zeller played 15 minutes against the Cavs on Friday with seven points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

    Advice: With the Hornets leaning more on Frank Kaminsky and giving Marvin Williams more minutes at the four, that meant less playing time for Zeller. He's only worth owning in deep leagues. Friday, 7:16 pm
  • Evan Turner leaves game with right eye injury
    Evan Turner left Friday's game against the Wizards with an apparent right eye injury, and did not return.

    Advice: Turner finished Friday's game with four points on 2-of-7 shooting to go with two boards, three assists, one steal, two blocks and two turnovers in 21 minutes of action. He was questionable to return, but with the Celtics blowing out the Wizards, there was no need for him to return to the court. The injury seemed relatively minor, but we'll be considering him questionable for Sunday's game against the Magic. Friday, 6:50 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) out Friday vs. SAC
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: It'll be Bjelica's fourth straight game on the sidelines, and he remains without a clear timetable to return. Gorgui Dieng has seen his minutes go up recently, and it'll be interesting to see if that trend continues once Bjelica is healthy. Adreian Payne will also pick up some extra minutes sans Bjelica, but he won't see enough floor time to make an impact in most leagues. Friday, 6:06 pm
  • Patrick Beverley will start vs. 76ers
    Patrick Beverley will start against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: It'll be his first start of the season. The Rockets haven't got much out of their point guard spot all season, so Beverley should be getting minutes in the mid 20s. He's a solid pickup in 14-team leagues right now and is worth a look in stanard leagues, too. Friday, 4:39 pm
  • Nik Stauskas says he's available to play
    Nik Stauskas (knee) said he's available to play on Friday against the Rockets.

    Advice: Even though he's available, he might not be playing tonight. Stauskas was expected to miss at least one more game on top of this one, so he's not someone fantasy owners should be counting on for tonight. Friday, 3:59 pm
  • Rockets may alter starting lineup vs. Philly
    Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that he may alter his starting lineup vs. the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: The most likely move is shifting Patrick Beverley into the starting lineup ahead of Jason Terry. Ty Lawson played only three minutes on Wednesday and might not even be in the rotation, allowing Beverley and Terry to split the PG minutes between them. Friday, 3:31 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica likely out on Friday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is not likely to play on Friday against the Kings.

    Advice: He will be a game-time call, but fantasy owners should plan on him sitting. Bjelica was really struggling before his injury, so he's justifiably been cut in several leagues. Expect to see a lot of small-ball tonight with Adreian Payne getting most of the PF minutes. Payne isn't a great play. Friday, 3:12 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica is a game-time call
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is a game-time decision to play against the Kings on Friday.

    Advice: He was able to go through at least some of practice today. The Wolves haven't been able to get much out of the power forward spot in the past two weeks with Bjelica struggling before his injury and Adreian Payne in a slump, too. Tayshaun Prince has played a lot of stretch four and Shabazz Muhammad has stepped up a tad. Fantasy owners should probably steer clear of this situation. Friday, 12:05 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) hopeful to play Friday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is feeling better and is hopeful to play on Friday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: He's missed the past three games due to a knee contusion, and it should be noted that he was in a major slump prior to going down. Bjelica does have talent and upside, but feel free to monitor him from the waiver wire until he turns things around. Friday, 9:09 am
  • Wayne Ellington back from migraine Wednesday
    Wayne Ellington (migraine) played seven minutes during Wednesday's road loss, making a free throw to finish with one point, one rebound and one assist.

    Advice: The migraine kept Ellington from playing on Sunday but it's no longer an issue. What is an issue, at least for fantasy owners, is the fact that he's averaging 3.5 points on 32.7 percent shooting this season. Wednesday, 10:49 pm
  • Marcus Thornton scores two points
    Marcus Thornton scored two points in 15 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: More importantly, he attempted his first free throws of the season after failing to do so in his first 316 minutes of the year. Your move, T.J. McConnell. Wednesday, 9:46 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
  • Evan Turner starts 2nd half over Jae Crowder
    Evan Turner started the second half of Wednesday's game in place of Jae Crowder and finished with 16 points, nine boards, three assists and one block in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Turner takes some offensive pressure off Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley, which was desirable after the Celtics' awful 40-point first half. Turner is a more appealing fantasy option when starting but this isn't likely to become a trend, so he remains a borderline option in 12-team leagues. Wednesday, 7:28 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will not play
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will not play against the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Advice: It'll be his third game out due to knee soreness from his contusion. After the former EuroLeague MVP was playing well earlier this month, his injury has justifiably sent him to the waiver wire. Adreian Payne and Shabazz Muhammad gain some value here. Wednesday, 4:05 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Nik Stauskas (knee) ruled out for road trip
    Nik Stauskas (left knee contusion) has been ruled out for the remainder of the 76ers three-game road trip.

    Advice: Stauskas is expected to miss the next week of action, which will translate to more opportunity for guys like Robert Covington, Isaiah Canaan, JaKarr Sampson and Hollis Thompson, with Covington offering the most upside. Stauskas wasn't playing very well before the injury, so owners may want to consider sending him to the waiver wire. Wednesday, 8:29 am
  • Nik Stauskas (knee) doubtful for Wednesday
    Brett Brown said that Nik Stauskas (left knee contusion) might not be available for the rest of the 76ers three-game road trip. Wednesday, 8:15 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
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Nemanja Bjelica (left knee contusion) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Advice: Bjelica was limited during Tuesday's practice, so it wouldn't be shocking to see him spend another game on the sidelines. If he's out, Adreian Payne and Shabazz Muhammad will split his minutes, but neither guy makes for a great play in most leagues. Wednesday, 7:37 am
  • Nik Stauskas diagnosed with knee contusion
    An MRI revealed nothing more than a left knee contusion for Nik Stauskas, and the 76ers are currently listing him as day-to-day.

    Advice: A knee contusion typically isn't a lengthy absence, but given the way the 76ers tend to handle injuries, we're going to consider Stauskas doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Celtics. Isaiah Canaan and Robert Covington will benefit sans Sauce Castillo. Tuesday, 1:24 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
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) limited at practice
    Namenja Bjelica (knee) was able to do some "light stuff" during Tuesday's practice, according to head coach Sam Mitchell.

    Advice: Bjelica has spent the past two games on the sidelines with a left knee contusion, but this is the first time he's been able to get through any portions of the Wolves practice. We'll be considering him questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Hawks, and if he can't give it a go, it'll be Adreian Payne and Shabazz Muhammad picking up some extra minutes. Check back for another update on Bjelica following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Tuesday, 11:44 am
  • Cody Zeller returned to action on Monday November 23. Monday, 11:26 pm
  • Cody Zeller scores 12 points
    Cody Zeller scored 12 points in 28 minutes against the Kings on Monday with six rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: He played center in overtime over Al Jefferson. There is no word of an injury with Jefferson and maybe coach Steve Clifford just wanted to give Zeller a look with Big Al not looking like himself. Zeller is only a pickup in 16-team leagues. Monday, 9:12 pm
  • Nik Stauskas (knee) will have an MRI Tuesday
    Nik Stauskas (left knee pain) will have an MRI on Tuesday.

    Advice: He wasn't able to play in the second half of Monday's game vs. the Wolves after he complained about some soreness, and he didn't look quite right with just one shot attempt on the night. Isaiah Canaan started the second half on Sunday, while Robert Covington would also benefit if Stauskas needs to miss time. For what it's worth, Stauskas wouldn't reveal if he thought he had any ligament damage, so it certainly sounds like it's possible that he could be looking at an extended absence. Monday, 8:10 pm
  • Nik Stauskas (left knee pain) will not return
    Nik Stauskas (left knee pain) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: Stauskas missed his only shot attempt of the night and complained about his knee at halftime, so Isaiah Canaan started the second half. Stauskas has struggled all season long despite having the green light from deep and virtually no competition for minutes, but owners in deep leagues may want to wait until we get a firm update before making any changes. Monday, 6:32 pm
  • Cody Zeller will play on Monday
    Cody Zeller (ankle) will play on Monday and come off the bench.

    Advice: That means there should be less minutes for a suddenly improving Frank Kaminsky. Zeller is likely looking at minutes close to 20 while Kaminsky is a much riskier play in DFS now. Monday, 2:32 pm
  • Evan Turner plays well in 32 minutes Sunday
    Evan Turner finished Sunday's road loss with 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in 32 minutes off the Celtics' bench.

    Advice: Turner's minutes should rise with Marcus Smart (leg) on the shelf for a few weeks, and he's worth a look as a low-end source of scoring, rebounds, assists and steals. His bench production will be even more important with Avery Bradley in the starting lineup -- other than Turner, Boston's reserves shot a combined 33.3 percent from the field. Nov 22, 5:43 pm
  • Wayne Ellington (illness) questionable Sunday
    Wayne Ellington (illness) is questionable to play against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: Ellington is dealing with a migraine, but the issue wasn't reported until a few minutes before tip-off. He is averaging just 13.8 minutes per game this season, so he probably won't upset too many fantasy owners. For what it's worth, Ellington wasn't on the bench when the game started. Nov 22, 3:06 pm
  • Evan Turner dealing with swelling in his knee
    Evan Turner said that he's been dealing with some swelling in his knee since the preseason, but he doesn't think it's a very big deal.

    Advice: Turner will play on Sunday, and he should see a nice minutes bump with Marcus Smart (leg) out for the next couple of weeks. Turner doesn’t seem very concerned about the knee, and neither are we. Nov 22, 2:01 pm
  • Cody Zeller (ankle) questionable for Monday
    Cody Zeller (ankle) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Zeller was able to go through practice on Sunday, so it's possible that he will be a game-time decision. Frank Kaminsky has been playing well for the Hornets off the bench, and he could see some nice playing time if Zeller sits again. To be clear, Zeller is only worth owning in very deep leagues. Nov 22, 9:46 am
  • Ian Mahinmi slowing down a bit
    Ian Mahinmi scored four points with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 22 minutes on Saturday.

    Advice: His scoring numbers are way down and he's missed his last seven attempts from the line. Mahinmi is losing a lot of momentum after a nice run earlier this season, so he's a drop candidate. Nov 21, 6:40 pm
  • Evan Turner (leg) good to go Sunday
    Evan Turner (right leg strain) is good to go for Sunday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: This is the first we are hearing about a leg injury for Turner, but it doesn't sound serious and his status isn't in doubt. With Marcus Smart (leg) sidelined for at least two games, Turner's fantasy value should get a nice short-term bump. Nov 21, 10:11 am
  • Seraphin plays 11 minutes
    Kevin Seraphin played 11 minutes and did not score on Friday, adding two assists, one steal and five fouls.

    Advice: Coach Derek Fisher is probably going to shuffle his bench bigs here and there, so owning Seraphin won't be smooth sailing. You have to be in a very deep league to even consider him. Nov 20, 10:42 pm
  • Nik Stauskas scores 15 points, turning around
    Nik Stauskas scored 15 points against the Hornets with two rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He was 5-o-12 field and is finally snapping out of it. Stauskas is getting the open looks and plenty of them, but he hasn't been able to knock them down. He still hasn't done enough to raise the demand to be added in standard leagues just yet, but certainly give him a look if you need the treys. Nov 20, 6:41 pm
  • Mike Dunleavy still doesn't have a target
    Mike Dunleavy (back) is doing "side-to-side work" and still doesn't have a timetable to return.

    Advice: Today marks the eight-week mark from his surgery, but it sounds like he'll need another month or so. Expect Tony Snell and Doug McDermott to soak up most of the small forward minutes until Dunleavy is back. He's not worth a stash in most leagues yet. Nov 20, 2:35 pm
  • Cody Zeller (ankle) out, Lin starting at SG
    Cody Zeller (ankle) will not play against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: The Hornets will go small against the 76ers and put Jeremy Lin at shooting guard. Zeller had a minor ankle tweak on Wednesday and played just 14 minutes. Frank Kaminsky had a decent game on Wednesday with 11 points and could get minutes in the 20s again. He's obviously a very risky play. Nov 20, 2:25 pm
