    • Lin posts 14-5-6 line in win over Bucks
      Jeremy Lin scored 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes off the bench in the Lakers' 101-93 win over the Bucks on Friday.

      Advice: Lin has hovered around the bottom of the top-150 over the last month but has picked it up over the last week or so. Bryon Scott has said that he's thinking of starting Lin at some point, but that's not necessarily the driver of his value. He's worth a pickup though for the chance he can make a late-season run.

    • Faried (thumb) goes for 12 and eight
      Kenneth Faried (thumb) returned to action on Friday against the Jazz, scoring 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting with eight rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block in 28 minutes.

      Advice: Faried is at the middle of the drama in Denver and Brian Shaw is apparently bullet-proof so there isn't any end in sight for the inconsistency. In a best-case scenario, Faried busts his hump to prove Shaw wrong but the situation is so toxic there we wouldn't hold our breath. The high draft pick is barely clinging to top-125 value on the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Chandler hits 2-of-11 shots off the bench
      Wilson Chandler hit 2-of-11 shots in his 34-minute stint off the bench on Friday, finishing with six points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: The line isn't bad even if the shooting was. With the way the Nuggets have thinned out, Chandler should be owned in most formats. Rotoworld.com

    • Ingles posts low-end line against Nuggets
      Joe Ingles scored seven points on 3-of-5 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, five assists and one steal over 21 minutes on Friday against the Nuggets.

      Advice: Ingles and Elijah Millsap (seven points, three rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block, 25 minutes) have flashed humble potential in fantasy leagues, but there's probably not enough food to go around. Rotoworld.com

    • Dragic goes for 20 and five in loss
      Goran Dragic scored 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting with three rebounds, five assists and one steal in the Heat's loss to the Pelicans on Friday.

      Advice: Dragic has been a top-70 player so far in Miami and that's likely to rise as he gets comfortable and his role increases. Rotoworld.com

    • Smith blocks four shots, misses five threes
      Josh Smith nearly double-doubled with 10 points and nine rebounds to go with two assists and four blocks in 29 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: Smoove was in the house with an 0-for-5 mark from long distance, but the Rockets don't care and they shouldn't care with him hitting 33.7 percent of his looks from deep. He was in a tiny slump and his value with the Rockets in the top 60-80 range is a better measuring stick. Rotoworld.com

    • Williams scores 15 points with three assists
      Deron Williams started again at point guard on Friday as expected, scoring 15 points on 6-of-15 shooting (no threes) with five rebounds, three assists and three steals in 34 minutes.

      Advice: Williams outplayed Jarrett Jack (four points, 2-of-9 FGs, five assists, one steal, one block, 23 minutes) and that hasn't been the case for most of the season. The Nets want things to work out with Williams so they'll give him every chance to stay on track, but he'll have his work cut out for him staying ahead. Either way, he should be owned in all formats now that he avoided falling off the cliff, at least for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Arron Afflalo scores 18 points in 31 minutes
      Arron Afflalo scored 18 points with two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers against the Thunder on Friday.

      Advice: The Blazers went small tonight, which explains the uptick in minutes. Afflalo is likely only going to get minutes in the mid 20s, so it's going to be tough for him to hold value in standard leagues coming off the bench. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:57 pm
    • Brooks hits 2-of-15 shots on rough night
      Aaron Brooks hit just 2-of-15 shots (2-of-8 from deep) for six points, four rebounds, four assists and one steal over 31 minutes on Friday against the Wolves.

      Advice: If any impatient owner drops him after a less-than-spectacular start be ready to pick him up. Yes, the Bulls could bring in another point guard but it's doubtful they'll crack the rotation or impact Brooks' minutes. The diminutive guard has a late-round floor with some mid-round upside probably for the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Mirotic plays 19 minutes despite Taj's injury
      Nikola Mirotic played just 19 minutes despite Taj Gibson (ankle) playing just nine minutes in Friday's game, finishing with eight points on 2-of-9 shooting, four rebounds, three assists and a block.

      Advice: Mirotic had a nice line on Monday with Gibson out due to an illness, but tonight showed how Tom Thibodeau doesn't fully trust him yet. Mike Dunleavy and Tony Snell got the bulk of the extra minutes tonight, but if Gibson misses any time then Mirotic's explosive fantasy game might see the light, regardless. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Dudley needed an X-ray on knee
      Jared Dudley needed an X-ray on his knee following Friday's game.

      Advice: He said he is dealing with some problems with his kneecap, which bothered him last season. Dudley hasn't played well lately and has clearly been passed by Khris Middleton. If he's out, more minutes will go to Ersan Ilyasova and Jerryd Bayless. Rotoworld.com

    • MKG double-doubles with 12 and 11
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 12 points on 6-of-12 shooting with 11 rebounds, three assists and one block in Friday's loss to the Celtics.

      Advice: MKG doesn't have a great stat-set for standard leagues and isn't worth picking up, but if you're in a points league give him a look. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo Williams scores 31 points with six threes
      Mo Williams hit 9-of-23 shots (including six threes) for 31 points, seven rebounds, four assists and one steal over 37 minutes on Friday against the Celtics.

      Advice: Williams has been a bountiful add not once but twice this season. Even when Kemba Walker in mid-March there should be enough food at the table for him to eat in Charlotte. Rotoworld.com

    • Reggie Jackson has an abysmal game
      Reggie Jackson made 5-of-24 from the field against the Knicks on Friday for 16 points with five rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointers.

      Advice: This kind of line against the Knicks is inexcusable. Jackson hasn't quite hit his stride with his new team and is making just 33.3 percent from the field in his last three. Jackson is still a huge part of the offense and he's a good bet for several 20-7-7 kind of lines this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Harris back on track for fantasy owners
      Tobias Harris scored 15 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, two steals and one block in 37 minutes on Friday.

      Advice: Harris has two solid games under his belt and owners can use him like they normally would following his absence due to knee soreness. Rotoworld.com

    • Update: Wilson Chandler to come off bench Fri
      Updating a previous report, Wilson Chandler will come off the bench for Friday's game against the Jazz.

      Advice: Gary Harris is going to stick with the starting unit for this one, and this is a very interesting move for head coach Brian Shaw. The Nuggets don't have a lot of healthy bodies, so Chandler should still be able to get his minutes, but he'll be a bit more of a risky play coming off the bench. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 4:24 pm
    • Wilson Chandler (groin) will play Friday
      Wilson Chandler (groin) is a go for Friday's game vs. Utah.

      Advice: Chandler will likely return to the starting lineup, which will send Gary Harris back to the bench, and take away minutes from Will Barton. The Nuggets are banged up right now with Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) and Darrell Arthur (calf) out, so Wilson could be forced into heavy minutes playing both forward spots. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:50 pm
    • Kenneth Faried (thumb) is a go for Friday
      Kenneth Faried (thumb) will play against the Jazz on Friday and come off the bench.

      Advice: He missed Wednesday and there's no word on how many minutes he'll play. Faried was only playing minutes in the low 20s leading up to the injury, but he should have a chance for more with Darrell Arthur (knee) out. He's still not a must-start player tonight, especially with Rudy Gobert protecting the rim. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:48 pm
    • Lin to start over Clarkson at some point?
      Coach Bryon Scott said he is thinking of starting Jeremy Lin at some point.

      Advice: The change is not going to happen tonight with the Lakers sticking with the same starting five. Lin may start over Jordan Clarkson or the team could go with a two-PG lineup, as well. Clarkson has played next to Lin for 23.3 percent of his minutes this season, so this isn't too bold and there won't be many fantasy implications here outside of Wayne Ellington being less appealing. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:37 am
    • Kenneth Faried (thumb) probable for Friday
      Kenneth Faried (thumb) is likely to play Friday vs. the Jazz.

      Advice: Faried's play has fallen off greatly during the month of February with averages of just 8.1 points and 6.8 rebounds on 40.3 percent shooting from the field through 23.4 minutes of action. However, with Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) out and Darrell Arthur (calf) being listed as doubtful, Faried will likely be forced into heavy minutes on Friday, and hopefully he can bust out of his month long slump. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 12:36 pm
    • Wilson Chandler (groin) targeting Friday
      Wilson Chandler (groin) said that he'll "more than likely" be available for Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

      Advice: Chandler also downplayed the severity of his groin injury, saying it's nothing more than a "light strain," and it appears he has a decent chance of suiting up for Friday's matchup with Utah. Owners will want to check back for an official update closer to Friday's tip, but if Chandler is able to go, Gary Harris would head back to the bench where he'd return to being a negligible option in all leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 11:24 am
    • Shaw wants a more consistent Kenneth Faried
      Nuggets head coach Brian Shaw said he'd like to see more consistency out of Kenneth Faried (thumb).

      Advice: Faried is dealing with a thumb injury, but he was also benched in favor of Darrell Arthur on Monday. "The expectation level with Kenneth was never as a go-to guy. He was never a guy we expected to be able to throw the ball into and say: 'Go get us 20 points every night.' It's probably unfair for people to expect that," Shaw said. "But the other things — the rebounding, the running the floor and the energy — that's what people expect. And that's been a little bit inconsistent." The Manimal's fantasy owners likely agree with Shaw and may want to think about cutting Faried in deeper leagues if another solid option is available. Rotoworld.com

    • Ingles finally cools off in loss to Lakers
      Joe Ingles, who has seemingly been playing over his head for weeks, missed his only shot and didn't score in 15 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: He did have a steal and a block, but the return of Rodney Hood is eventually going to hurt him, and it looks like we saw the start of that tonight. Elijah Millsap also got hot and scored a career-high 17 points tonight, which is the real reason Ingles never really got back into the game. Rotoworld.com

    • Mo Williams gets hot in the second half
      Mo Williams scored 15 of his 17 points in the second half against the Bulls during a 98-86 win on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: His numbers look great in Charlotte, averaging 23.0 points, 7.5 dimes, 2.0 steals and 4.0 treys in his two previous starts. Williams is shaping up to be a must-start player in standard leagues until Kemba Walker (knee) returns next month. Rotoworld.com

    • Deron Williams quiet in Jarrett Jack's return
      Deron Williams started again on Wednesday and had 10 points and six assists in 34 minutes on 4-of-14 shooting.

      Advice: Jarrett Jack was back from his hamstring injury, but came off the bench and had 15 points in 28 minutes. It remains to be seen if Jack starts over Williams in the next one, but it would make more sense (at least to us) to leave Williams alone and start Jack at shooting guard. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist drops 18 and 12
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had a superb showing against the Bulls on Wednesday with 18 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 42 minutes.

      Advice: He has really come on nicely in his three games since suffering a hamstring injury, averaging 17.7 points, 7.3 boards, 0.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.3 turnovers on 56.4 percent from the field and 75.0 percent from the line. However, Kidd-Gilchrist's fantasy value on the season is only 214 in standard leagues, so he will somehow have to keep this hot stretch going. He's not worth owning in standard leagues, but he's worth a look in points leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:38 pm
    • Aaron Brooks plays 28 minutes on Wed
      Aaron Brooks played 28 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday during a start, scoring 12 points with four rebounds, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He made 4-of-12 from the field, was 3-of-8 from the line, and didn't turn the ball over. If Brooks is indeed going to play 28 minutes per game, he should absolutely be worth owning in standard leagues based on his per-minute production, averaging 10.6 points, 2.7 dimes, 0.6 steals and 1.5 treys in just 19.9 minutes per game this season. If you need a point guard, he is a very attractive option. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:29 pm
    • Kenneth Faried (thumb) won't play vs. Phoenix
      Kenneth Faried (thumb) will not play vs. the Suns on Wednesday.

      Advice: Faried was benched in Denver's last game and he's been struggling to provide any fantasy value lately, so his absence shouldn't be a huge blow for fantasy owners. Darrell Arthur, J.J. Hickson and Joffrey Lauvergne will pick up the slack in his absence. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 5:17 pm
    • Wilson Chandler out on Wednesday night
      Wilson Chandler (groin) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday.

      Advice: The Nuggets are very thin at forward and will start Danilo Gallinari and Darrell Arthur at those two spots. Chandler is likely going to miss more time, so there fantasy owners should take a look at Gallo and/or Arthur tonight. Although, he is targeting a return for Friday. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 5:16 pm
    • Aaron Brooks starting at PG vs. Charlotte
      Aaron Brooks will start at PG against the Hornets on Wednesday.

      Advice: Derrick Rose (knee) is out indefinitely, leaving Brooks with a clear path to sustained fantasy value down the stretch. Kirk Hinrich has been banged up and ineffective for months, and Tom Thibodeau isn't shy about giving his starters heavy minutes. Brooks still has explosive offensive potential and he should be owned in all leagues while we see how the Bulls' rotation shakes out in Rose's absence. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 3:18 pm
    • Wilson Chandler (hip) doubtful vs. the Suns
      Wilson Chandler (hip) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns.

      Advice: Now that they are pretty much out of playoff contention, the Nuggets have almost no incentive to play Chandler at less than 100 percent so we would be shocked if he somehow played in this one. Gary Harris drew the start in Chandler's place on Monday, but after scoring just 10 points on 4-of-12 shooting in 26 minutes, he is only worth a look in deeper leagues. Expect Randy Foye, Will Barton and Danilo Gallinari to see an uptick in minutes as well Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 10:21 am
    • Kenneth Faried (thumb) questionable Wednesday
      Kenneth Faried (thumb) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns.

      Advice: In addition to being benched in favor of Darrell Arthur during Monday's game vs. the Nets, Faried also suffered a thumb injury to make matters worse. While Faried was able to play through the injury that game, the Nuggets may opt to err on the side of caution Wednesday in what has become a lost season for the franchise. Expect Darrell Arthur to play big minutes if Faried sits vs. the Suns, with J.J. Hickson and Joffrey Lauvergne in the mix for more playing time as well. Rotoworld.com

    • Reggie Jackson racks up 22 pts, 8 reb, 9 ast
      Reggie Jackson filled up the boxscore during Tuesday's home loss, scoring a team-high 22 points with one 3-pointer, eight rebounds, nine assists and one block.

      Advice: R-Jax took a whopping 15 drives to the basket during his Pistons debut, according to NBA.com, and he finished 5-of-8 within 12 feet of the hoop tonight. He's being unleashed by coach Stan Van Gundy, a thrilling development for patient owners who watched him languish on OKC's bench prior to the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com

    • Tobias Harris will be ready for Weds vs Heat
      Magic head coach James Borrego said Tobias Harris (knee) felt good after Sunday's game against the 76ers and will be ready for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

      Advice: Harris struggled during his 25 minutes of playing time on Sunday, but Borrego's statement is great news for Tobias' fantasy owners. While Borrego may use a minutes limit for Harris in the short-term, he has enough upside to be a nightly start in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Tuesday, 8:12 am
    • Ingles back to posting versatile lines
      Joe Ingles scored 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 27 minutes on Monday against the Spurs.

      Advice: Ingles started to make some noise before a back injury derailed him, and factoring in the games in which he struggled with it he has been a top-125 guy over the last eight contests. We know he's not exactly a household name but he's worth a look in competitive formats. Rotoworld.com

    • Deron Williams looks good in another start
      Deron Williams was effective against the Nuggets on Monday with 16 points, five rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and one turnover.

      Advice: Jarrett Jack missed his second consecutive game and it's led to consecutive double-doubles for Williams. It's been a while since he had one of those with his last double-double coming back on Dec. 16. Jack was ruled out this morning, so he's likely going to miss more time. Williams should be viewed as a must-start player until further notice. Rotoworld.com

    • Kenneth Faried hurts hand, plays 13 minutes
      Kenneth Faried returned from his Monday hand injury during a loss to the Nets, scoring four points with five rebounds, one assist and one block in 13 minutes.

      Advice: He came off the bench tonight because the Nuggets are very thin at the forward spots with Wilson Chandler (groin) out tonight. Coach Brian Shaw isn't the biggest Faried fan in the world and his value is basically at rock bottom following a two-point game on Sunday. If for some reason Alex Len, Jusuf Nurkic or another red-hot free agent are on the wire, it's not a bad idea to cut Manimal for them. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:53 pm
    • Josh Smith plays well against the Wolves
      Josh Smith played well against the Wolves on Monday with 17 points, four rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: The Rockets tightened up their frontcourt rotation, so there were minutes for Smith, Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas. Smith has played very well over his last five, averaging 16.2 points, 6.4 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.6 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys on 50.0 percent from the field. He is a bit of a sell-high player, though. Rotoworld.com

    • Nikola Mirotic drops 16 & 14 on the Bucks
      Nikola Mirotic scored 16 points on 4-of-11 shooting (2-of-6 from deep, 6-of-8 from the line) with a career-high 14 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 31 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: Mirotic got the extra run because Taj Gibson (illness) was out and it's a reminder that he'll be a very nice fantasy player if ever given consistent minutes. For now, he's a gambler's stash at best. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:36 pm
    • Brooks scores just four points against Bucks
      Aaron Brooks scored just four points on Monday, hitting 2-of-9 shots from the field with one rebound and two assists in 19 minutes.

      Advice: Brooks had a nice month of January but it has been downhill ever since and he can be left on waivers in most standard formats. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 8:30 pm
    • Dudley goes scoreless on Monday vs. Bulls
      Jared Dudley was demoted to a bench role on Monday and missed all four of his shot attempts, finishing with no points as the Bulls had no mercy on his soul.

      Advice: Dudley managed two steals, one board and one assist and he has been slowly trending down over the past week. After a night like this, owners have to be thinking about a drop and if there's any slightly better than average free agent it's an easy call. Rotoworld.com

    • Goran Dragic looks much better with 23 & 10
      Goran Dragic showed why the Heat traded for him on Monday with 23 points, two rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He only had one assist in his Heat debut on Saturday and was on the other end of the spectrum tonight. Dragic was highly involved in the offense and he should add plenty more double-doubles with his new team. He's one of the best point guards in the paint, which should complement the rest of the starters. He's a must-start player. Rotoworld.com

    • Kenneth Faried (hand) goes to locker room
      Kenneth Faried (left hand) went to the locker room on Monday and has returned.

      Advice: X-rays were negative and he should be OK, but he's not getting much playing time right now. He had ice on his hand and it's unclear if he'll need to miss time. If he does, Darrell Arthur, Joffrey Lauvergne and J.J. Hickson will get more run. Rotoworld.com

    • Kenneth Faried off the bench Monday
      Kenneth Faried will come off the bench on Monday.

      Advice: He wasn't late for practice either. Faried has been awful and the thinking here might be that the Nuggets need someone in their second unit. Regardless, his owners should stick with him because is value is way too low right now. Rotoworld.com

    • Wilson Chandler (groin) out on Monday night
      Wilson Chandler (groin) will not play against the Nets on Monday.

      Advice: The Nuggets are really going to be shorthanded on the wing. With Chandler out, there should be more Danilo Gallinari at the three and maybe Randy Foye and Gary Harris play more at shooting guard. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 4:31 pm
    • Wilson Chandler questionable to play Monday
      Wilson Chandler (hip) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Nets.

      Advice: Chandler played just 18 minutes on Sunday, and perhaps now we know why. Chandler has dealt with hip and groin injuries for a lot of his career, and he's once again experiencing soreness in his adductors. If Chandler doesn't suit up, expect Randy Foye to draw the start alongside Danilo Gallinari. Will Barton and rookie Gary Harris could also see a few extra minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • Spoelstra wants to make Dragic comfortable
      Erik Spoelstra said of his "biggest priorities" is to make Goran Dragic "feel comfortable as soon as we can."

      Advice: "It was tough. Sometimes you didn’t know where to go," Dragic said of his debut with his new teammates. Spoelstra also said that the Heat want to "play to his strengths" when talking about Dragic's acclimation, and it will be an adjustment process for all involved. Even Dwyane Wade admitted it will take some time to play with another guy who can create off the dribble, and it sounds like the Heat will be tinkering with their new look for at least the next several contests.

    • Reggie Jackson felt like Thunder 'scapegoat'
      Reggie Jackson said that he felt like the "scapegoat" with the Thunder.

      Advice: "I wasn't always perfect, nor was the situation, but I became the brunt of the blame there," Jackson said. "Everything bad that happened, I was the scapegoat. I'm taking all this blame, and I'm wondering: 'How am I supposed to change it all here, make an impact, in eight minutes a game?' Jackson dramatized his exit out of OKC, and he's now under tremendous pressure to succeed as Stan Van Gundy's point guard, a responsibility that Jackson says he's always wanted. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeremy Lin scores 25 points in Lakers' OT win
      The Lakers stole an overtime win vs. the Celtics on Sunday behind Jeremy Lin, who scored 25 points and handed out six assists in just 30 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: Lin didn't play during the first quarter and seemed headed for another lousy night, but he caught fire as the game went on and was the difference-maker in L.A.'s comeback victory. The Lakers have won two of their past 18 games and they're headed nowhere this season, which is another reason to distrust Lin's ROS value, but he's at least worth stashing on your bench in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 9:56 pm
    • Arron Afflalo quiet in Trail Blazers debut
      Arron Afflalo made his Trail Blazers debut on Sunday with eight points, four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: Afflalo hit one 3-pointer and he'll add some much-needed punch to the Blazers' second unit, but the trade to Portland spoils his fantasy value as long as Nicolas Batum and Wesley Matthews are healthy. Afflalo doesn't get many boards and assists, and he's even worse in defensive stats, so the 29-year-old veteran belongs on the waiver wire in most standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Mo Williams continued his stellar play with the Hornets in a loss to the Mavericks on Sunday, scoring 22 points with three assists, one board, three steals and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

      Advice: The Hornets clearly got a bargain in their trade with the Wolves, as Williams has been nothing short of incredible with his new team. He scored 24 points with 11 assists and five 3-pointers on Saturday, and with Kemba Walker set to miss at least a few more weeks, Williams is going to be a must-start player for the foreseeable future. Congrats are in order if you were able to snag him off the wire. As for Brian Roberts, it's safe to drop him in almost all leagues after he failed to score in just 14 minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • Wilson Chandler awful in 18 minutes vs. OKC
      Wilson Chandler played only 18 minutes in Sunday's ugly road loss vs. the Thunder, going 2-of-11 from the field to finish with four points, four rebounds and one assist.

      Advice: Chandler had scored 10+ points in seven of the Nuggets' previous eight games and this was a fluky performance by any measure. Denver may start favoring young players over veterans down the stretch, which would erode Chandler's fantasy appeal, but for now we're anticipating a bounce-back effort vs. Brooklyn on Monday.

    • Tobias Harris (knee) struggles in 25 minutes
      Tobias Harris (knee) struggled in 25 minutes during his return on Sunday, posting four points on 2-of-6 shooting, one rebound, two assists and three turnovers in a start vs. the 76ers.

      Advice: He missed the past three games dating back to Feb. 9 and wasn't able to take advantage of the favorable matchup tonight. Interim coach James Borrego may be forced to limit Harris' minutes to keep him healthy down the stretch, but his top-50 upside is enough reason for fantasy owners to stay patient. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 6:04 pm
    • Reggie Jackson scores 17 pts in Pistons debut
      Reggie Jackson scored 17 points with five rebounds and five assists in his Pistons' debut on Sunday, making 7-of-18 shots with one 3-pointer in 30 minutes of action.

      Advice: He immediately started and is a must-own player now that he's locked in as a starter for Detroit. He hadn't taken more than 12 shots in a game since Dec. 31 and his stats will inevitably spike across the board, so get in your trade offers while you still can. Tonight's line could have been even better but Jackson was under the weather, even becoming ill on the sidelines during the game. R-Jax's starting job is bad news for reserve G Spencer Dinwiddie, who isn't worth holding in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 3:58 pm
    • Tobias Harris (knee) to start Sunday vs. PHI
      Tobias Harris (knee) will draw the start for Sunday's game against the 76ers.

      Advice: Harris will return to action with a fantastic matchup against the Sixers, and he's certainly someone to consider for those playing daily leagues. His return to the starting lineup will send either Channing Frye or Evan Fournier back to the bench, and with averages of 17.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.1 three-pointers per game, Harris is a must-start guy every time he's in uniform. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 1:16 pm
    • Reggie Jackson will start Sunday vs. Wizards
      Reggie Jackson will be in the starting lineup against the Wizards on Sunday.

      Advice: Jackson is looking at a huge bump in his fantasy value since his move to Detroit, and he should be owned in all leagues moving forward. In 13 starts for the Thunder this season, Jackson averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 3-pointers per game, so his owners should be feeling pretty good right about now. Spencer Dinwiddie will shift to the bench on Sunday, and can now be dropped in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Aaron Afflalo excited about trade to Blazers
      Aaron Afflalo is excited about his recent trade to Portland, and he has said that he will accept any role that the team gives him as they look to make some noise in the Western Conference.

      Advice: "I look at myself as a person that gives a team what it needs," Afflalo said. "If this team needs depth, if it needs scoring off the bench, if it needs a defensive stopper for segments, that's what I'm going to be." Afflalo's is going to come off the bench in Portland and play fewer minutes than he did in Denver, so even though he should see a decrease in production, his efficiency might rise with a much stronger supporting cast. Afflalo is by no means a must-own player anymore, but he's still worth a look for owners in need of 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 6:14 am
    • Josh Smith cooling off these day
      Josh Smith played 21 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday with eight points, five rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: His minutes dropped to 26 on Friday and a lot of it has to do with Terrence Jones becoming the best Rocket big man this weekend. Smith was way too good for about three weeks to make a hasty judgment, but we probably can rule him out as a top-50 guy in standard leagues due to awful shooting. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 10:18 pm
    • Goran Dragic has a slow start to Miami career
      Goran Dragic didn't play well in his first game with the Heat on Saturday during a 105-91 loss to the Pelicans, scoring 12 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: The Heat offense was lost tonight with a lot of guys standing around Dwyane Wade (19 points, four rebounds and four assists) The Heat also used a lot of three-guard lineups tonight, which was a big complaint from Dragic in Phoenix. He obviously gets a pass here and should be better on Monday against the 76ers. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 7:37 pm
    • Kidd-Gilchrist steps up on Saturday
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist stepped up against the Thunder on Saturday, scoring a season-high 20 points with four rebounds and three steals.

      Advice: He spent a lot of time covering Russell Westbrook, so kudos to him for turning it up on the offensive end. Plus, this was also his first game since Feb. 7 due to a hamstring injury. As encouraging as this was, Kidd-Gilchrist just doesn't have the type of game to turn in fantasy value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:39 pm
    • Mo Williams thrives in first Charlotte start
      Mo Williams had an exceptional start to his Hornet career on Saturday, scoring 24 points with four rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

      Advice: Wow. He made the 1,000th 3-pointer of his career and he's likely going to make a heck of a lot more based on how he launched 10 attempts tonight. Williams is really a nice fit to help space the floor with Al Jefferson posting up and they really don't have a great shooter on the team right now. We still won't see Kemba Walker for a few more weeks, so Williams could be a top-50 guy until then. If you want help now, you almost have to add him after this one. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:20 pm
    • Enter the Dragon: Goran Dragic will start
      Goran Dragic will start against the Pelicans on Saturday.

      Advice: "We brought him here to play. We brought him here to start," coach Erik Spoelstra said. Dragic and the Heat will play at a faster tempo and the former Sun should be operating with the ball a lot more. He also played next to some floor-spacing guys, so it'll be interesting to see how he fits in with some new guys. Obviously, he should see a full complement of minutes and is a must-start player. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 2:58 pm
    • Mo Williams will start vs. the Thunder
      Mo Williams will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

      Advice: It's his first game with the team and he's already beat Brian Roberts for the starting job, which sums up how poorly Roberts played. Williams probably won't play more than 30 minutes tonight considering how often he's hurt. Plus, throwing him out there for more than 30 minutes against Russell Westbrook sounds like a cruel punishment. Williams is more of a scorer than Roberts, so expect slightly less scoring output from Gerald Henderson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 2:19 pm
    • Goran Dragic will play on Saturday night
      Goran Dragic will play against the Pelicans on Saturday night.

      Advice: Coach Erik Spoelstra also said he expects to see the Heat increase their pace.That's a great sign all around because the Heat rank dead last in the NBA in pace this season. With Dragic in the mix, Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier will lose playing, which is too bad after both played very well on Friday. Dragic should see his fantasy value increase and it'll go up even higher when the Heat rest Dwyane Wade. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 12:46 pm
    • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will start on Saturday
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hamstring) will be in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Thunder.

      Advice: Jeff Taylor will move back to the bench following this news and be cut across the board. MKG missed the Hornet's last two games prior to the All-Star break, but there has been no indication that he will have any restrictions on his playing time. However, even though MKG can score and rebound well enough to matter in points formats, his inefficient shooting and lack of defensive stats makes him tough to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 9:11 am
    • Coach SVG intends to keep Reggie Jackson
      Head coach Stan Van Gundy made it clear that Reggie Jackson will be his long-term answer at point guard for the Pistons.

      Advice: "We wouldn't have made the move we did if we didn't feel ready to make it a long-term commitment," Van Gundy said Friday. "There's no guarantees. He's a [restricted free agent]. We know we can keep him through next year no matter what he does, but we feel good about making a long-term commitment to him and hopefully he'll feel real comfortable making a long-term commitment here and we'll get it done." Jackson has an incredible opportunity to start and play big minutes for Detroit, and he shouldn't be floating around any waiver wires at this point. In 13 starts for the Thunder this season, Jackson averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 3-pointers per game, so his owners should prepare to be amazed. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:18 am
    • Jeremy Lin scores 18 points on Friday
      Jeremy Lin scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting (1-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-8 FTs) with one rebound, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: We don't trust Byron Scott or Lin as far as we can throw them these days, but this is a decent showing for a guy who has been lacking in both confidence and production lately. He's not a must-add player or even a strong add, but he's worth keeping an eye on in case he can get on track with a terribly shallow squad. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:59 am
    • D-Will gets on the board with 12 and 15 night
      Deron Williams started for Jarrett Jack (hamstring) on Friday against the Lakers, scoring 12 points on 6-of-14 shooting (no threes) with four rebounds, 15 assists, two steals, one block and five turnovers in 40 minutes.

      Advice: Nice. And it's about time. Surely the All Star break helped him get his legs back and some time off probably didn't hurt the noggin, either. We're nowhere near declaring that he's back in the vicinity of his early season production, especially after beating up on L.A., but this outing makes him an interesting gambler's target via trade. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:42 am
    • Ingles scores eight points with two threes
      Joe Ingles (back) returned to action in Friday's surprisingly easy win over the Blazers, scoring eight points on 3-of-6 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes.

      Advice: This harkens back to some of his other versatile showings before he started to slide and ultimately get injured. There wasn't a ton of upside to begin with, but if he can do this again owners might want to give him a look. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Dudley plays 41 minutes
      Jared Dudley played 41 minutes against the Nuggets on Friday during an 89-81 win, scoring 11 points with eight boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: With Ghostface Ilya (illness) continuing to be an anti-Ironman, Dudley picked up some extra run. Dudley's numbers aren't great this month, averaging 10.7 points, 2.9 boards, 2.1 assists, 0.7 steals and 2.0 treys on 52.8 percent from the field. He's still a low-end guy to own for those who missed out on the wave of pickups from this week. Rotoworld.com

    • Wilson Chandler attempts 20 shots in 38 mins
      Wilson Chandler made 8-of-20 from the field for 19 points during an 89-81 loss to the Bucks on Friday, adding four rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: He launched a whopping 12 treys tonight and had a whopping 29.5 usage rate in 38 minutes. Chandler is going to get a ton of shots now with Arron Afflalo out of the picture, so his fantasy owners should see better lines than this one. He's a must-own player. Rotoworld.com

    • Joe Ingles (back) will start at SG on Friday
      Joe Ingles (back) will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game against Portland, sending Elijah Millsap back to the bench.

      Advice: With Rodney Hood also returning to action tonight, Millsap's days of relevancy in deep leagues are likely numbered. Ingles is averaging 6.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game as a starter, so he can be viewed as a low-budget plug-and-play option in daily leagues.

    • Tobias Harris (knee) ruled out vs. Pelicans
      Tobias Harris (right knee) will not play against the Pelicans on Friday.

      Advice: This is an about-face from yesterday and is troubling news. Harris missed the last two games before the break and history suggests he's been a slow healer, so he could be out beyond tonight. His owners have to bench him. Evan Fournier will start, but expect to see more production out of Nikola Vucevic and Victor Oladipo. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 2:20 pm
    • Reggie Jackson refused to play earlier in yr?
      Reggie Jackson was cleared to play on Nov. 1 following an ankle injury, but "refused to because of disappointment that he wasn’t traded before the Oct. 31 extension deadline," according to Royce Young of ESPN.com.

      Advice: Wow. It became clear that Jackson didn't want to be there based on Kevin Durant saying on Thursday that the team "felt like everybody wanted to be here except for one guy." Considering this information, general manager Sam Presti gets even more credit for getting back so much in the deal yesterday. As for Jackson, he's not playing tonight, but he should put up big numbers. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 2:12 pm
    • Deron Williams likely to start Friday vs. LAL
      Deron Williams will likely slide back into the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Lakers with Jarret Jack (hamstring) unavailable.

      Advice: He's going to get a very favorable matchup tonight, and there's a chance his return to the starting lineup becomes a permanent change. Williams is averaging 15.6 points, 6.8 assists, and 1.6 three-pointers per game as a starter, so owners will need to hope he can keep his job once Jack is healthy. As a side note, the Nets are paying Williams $19.8 million this season compared to Jack's $6.3 million. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 12:43 pm
    • If he plays, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will start
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is expected to start against the Thunder on Saturday.

      Advice: We still don't have an official word that he's going to play, but he went through a full practice on Thursday. Jeff Taylor will move back to the bench and may not play at all while Gerald Henderson probably won't play quite as much. MKG is still not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 12:20 pm
    • Reggie Jackson, Tayshaun Prince out Friday
      Reggie Jackson and Tayshaun Prince have both officially been ruled out for Friday's game against the Bulls.

      Advice: It will be Spencer Dinwiddie starting at point guard, and Caron Butler at small forward for tonight's game, with Dinwiddie being the most intriguing plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Jackson, however, is expected to be available for Sunday's game against the Wizards, so Dinwiddie's status as a starter will be short-lived. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:52 am
    • Goran Dragic aiming for Saturday
      Goran Dragic is hoping to make his Heat debut on Saturday, meaning he will not play Friday vs. the Knicks.

      Advice: If the Dragic brothers, and other players involved in the trade, all pass their physicals, look for Goran to start on Saturday. In the meantime, Mario Chalmers could have a big game Friday for the shorthanded Knicks. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:40 am
    • Reggie Jackson doubtful to play on Friday
      Reggie Jackson was not at the Pistons' shootaround, and he is doubtful for Friday's game against the Bulls.

      Advice: Spencer Dinwiddie has already been named as the starter for tonight's game, so it's safe to assume Jackson will be unavailable for this one. Stan Van Gundy did tell Jackson that he will be in the starting lineup on Sunday if he's cleared before tip-off, so owners will need to wait a couple days before they get to see a revitalized Jackson in Detroit. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 9:17 am
    • Arron Afflalo: 'It's championship time'
      Following Thursday's trade sending Arron Afflalo to Portland, Afflalo posted a video to his Instragram account stating: "It's championship time."

      Advice: Afflalo will indeed give the Blazers' some much-needed depth, however, he will now see his minutes cut from the 33 minutes per game he was averaging with the Nuggets to somewhere in the mid 20s as a Sixth Man for the Blazers. The Blazers, as a team do take plenty of 3-pointers (second in the league in 3-point attempts per game), so Afflalo should be able to maintain some value, but his demotion to a bench role could end his status as a must-own guy in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 7:32 am
    • Tobias Harris (knee) questionable for Friday
      Tobias Harris (right knee) is now being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Pelicans.

      Advice: There was a report yesterday that Harris had been cleared to play, but it appears head coach James Borrego is going to be cautious with his asset. We’d consider Harris to be on the probable side of the questionable tag, but if he is forced to sit, Evan Fournier will likely get another game with the starting unit and he'd make for a decent plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • Report: MIA prepared to offer Dragic max-deal
      The Heat are expected to offer Goran Dragic a five-year, max-contract worth upwards of $100 million when he opts out of his contract to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

      Advice: Miami wouldn't have given up two first-round draft picks without feeling good about their chances of retaining Dragic this offseason, and his fantasy value is due for a significant boost with the move to South Beach. Mario Chalmers' value on the other hand is due to take a sizable hit, as he's forced to a bench role to accommodate The Dragon in the starting unit. Rotoworld.com
      Friday, 6:20 am
    • Reggie Jackson slightly doubtful to play Fri?
      Team beat writer Keith Langlois said it would "be surprising" to see Reggie Jackson play on Friday against the Bulls.

      Advice: If that's the case, that means we will see John Lucas III and Spencer Dinwiddie handle the rock for the Pistons while trying to guard Derrick Rose. As for Jackson, he is going to dominate the ball. Jackson had a 27.3 usage rate when he wasn't playing next to Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, so he'll have a chance to score 20 per game with plenty of other stats. Those who stashed him hit the jackpot. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 5:29 pm
    • Goran Dragic traded to Heat at the buzzer
      Goran Dragic has been traded from the Suns to the Heat for a package that includes four players and two first-round draft picks.

      Advice: The Suns received a good haul for Dragic, who demanded a trade due to unhappiness with his role. He gives the Heat a huge upgrade at point guard and makes them a more dangerous playoff team, and his fantasy value should surge with less competition in Miami. His brother Zoran Dragic was also dealt to Miami as part of the bargain. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 11:48 am
    • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist goes through practice
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hamstring) went through practice on Thursday and is expected to play on Saturday against the Thunder.

      Advice: The All-Star break came at the right time and MKG only needed two games to recover from a hamstring strain. He's made some improvements this season, but not doing anything besides score and rebound makes him someone fantasy owners in standard leagues can leave on the wire. Gerald Henderson and Jeff Taylor won't play as much. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 9:48 am
    • Tobias Harris cleared to play on Friday night
      Tobias Harris (knee) has been cleared to play on Friday against the Pelicans.

      Advice: He was monitored on Wednesday at practice and he should be able to play his normal playing time. Harris has been logging a whopping 41.0 minutes per game in February, averaging 22.5 points, 7.3 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys. He should have a big second half under his new coach. Rotoworld.com

    • Blazers trade for Arron Afflalo, Alonzo Gee
      The Blazers acquired Arron Afflalo and Alonzo Gee in exchange for a first-round pick, second-round pick, Will Barton, Victor Claver and Thomas Robinson.

      Advice: Afflalo will come off the bench behind Wes Matthews and Nicolas Batum, though he's expected to miss Friday's game before making his debut on Sunday. He was playing 33 minutes per game in Denver this season, but he'll see minutes in the mid 20s now. While the Blazers do take a lot of treys, Afflalo's fantasy value takes a significant hit here. He can be dropped in standard leagues. Gary Harris, Randy Foye and Danilo Gallinari benefit most. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:29 am
    • Heat offering two 1st-round picks for Dragic?
      Miami is offering two future first-round picks for Goran Dragic, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com.

      Advice: Broussard adds Suns owner Robert Sarver is "being stubborn," which doesn't really hold much weight with several hours to go until the deadline. Additionally, the Heat probably won't have their 2015 pick because it's going to the 76ers -- it's top-10 protected, but Miami should make the playoffs. Dragic is reportedly interested in the Heat, but they really don't have the assets. Rotoworld.com

    • Denver looking for huge Arron Afflalo return
      Denver is reportedly seeking a first-round pick and a second-round pick for Arron Afflalo, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

      Advice: While Afflalo has drawn interest around the league, the Nuggets are asking for an awful lot considering Afflalo could elect to hit the open market after this season. If a deal is completed, however, Randy Foye, Gary Harris, and Danilo Gallinari would all stand to see a boost in fantasy value. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 6:40 am
    • Other teams after Arron Afflalo
      The Nuggets are sifting offers on Arron Afflalo on Wednesday with some "late-chargers" thickening plot, according to Yahoo! Sports.

      Advice: The Blazers are still the frontrunner, but they'll have some competition. Afflalo is almost a lock to be dealt tomorrow and his fantasy value would take a hit. The Nuggets could have a fire sale, so it's tough to project which players will benefit. It could be Randy Foye, Gary Harris or Danilo Gallinari. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 8:49 pm
    • Joe Ingles (back) goes through practice
      Joe Ingles (back) went through practice on Wednesday.

      Advice: He should be ready to go for the weekend. Rodney Hood is getting closer to a return, so Ingles probably won't see minutes over 20 for long. In his last three games, he averaged 5.0 points, 3.3 boards, 2.3 assists and 0.3 steals. Rotoworld.com

    • Swaggy P says Lin should pass more
      Nick Young said that Jeremy Lin should have "focused on passing a little bit more."

      Advice: "Especially when Kobe was out there, [Jeremy] needed to drop dimes," Young said. This is the least surprising quote of the week. Lin has a somewhat high 20.8 usage rate while he's on the court with Young this season, so Young would probably rather see it fall to like 2.08. Lin hasn't played well at all and isn't worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:41 am
    • Michael Kidd-Gilchrst goes through practice
      Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hamstring) was able to participate in non-contact portions of practice on Wednesday, and if he makes it through contact practice on Thursday, he will be cleared to play against the Thunder on Saturday.

      Advice: He is averaging 10.2 points and 7.2 boards on the season, but his inefficient shooting and lack of defensive stats makes him tough to own in standard leagues. We will update MKG's status after practice on Thursday, but all signs point to him playing against Kevin Durant and the Thunder. Jeff Taylor will slide to the bench upon MKG's return to action, while Lance Stephenson should lose some minutes as well. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 9:54 am
    • Tobias Harris (knee) will practice on Wed.
      Tobias Harris (knee) has reportedly improved and will be monitored at Wednesday's practice.

      Advice: Harris missed the Magic's last two games prior to the All-Star break so he has been able to get some much needed rest for his ailing knee. The Magic will likely provide an update on Harris' status after the practice, so be sure to check back for updates. As of right now, Harris should be considered questionable to play against the Pelicans on Friday, while Evan Fournier would benefit the most if he misses any more action. Rotoworld.com
