  • Matt Bonner (calf) out Saturday
    Matt Bonner (calf) will not play on Saturday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: He picked up the injury during Friday's blowout win over the Mavs, but he's not a regular in the rotation even with Tim Duncan (knee) out. Leave Bonner on the wire. Rotoworld.com 29 minutes ago
  • Ian Mahinmi (back) is questionable Saturday
    Ian Mahinmi (back) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Pacers coach Frank Vogel said on Friday that Mahinmi was probable, so he has a very good chance of returning from a four-game absence tonight. Mahinmi has been a pleasant surprise all season with averages of 8.5 points, 7.1 boards and 1.0 blocks, so he's worth a look if you need a low-end big. Jordan Hill and Lavoy Allen will lose minutes upon Mahinmi's return. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:34 am
  • Caldwell-Pope expected to be back after ASB
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (core muscle strain) is expected to be back right after the All-Star break.

    Advice: This was the expectation all along, but Stan Van Gundy confirmed it again on Saturday. KCP is worth stashing in almost all leagues unless you're desperate, and in the meantime Stanley Johnson is worth owning after scoring 22 points in 44 minutes vs. the Knicks on Thursday. On a side note, SVG also said that the Pistons will likely stand pat at the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:06 am
  • Bickerstaff praises Corey Brewer
    Rockets coach J.B. Bickerstaff said that Corey Brewer is "disruptive" on the defensive end.

    Advice: "He's disruptive," Bickerstaff said. "When he's able to get steals, that's when his offense starts. His offense starts on the defensive end of the court. It's a steal for us. It's a defensive rebound for us and then it's a quick outlet. When we're getting stops, that's when [Brewer] is at his best." Brewer scored 24 points against the Suns on Thursday and is still starting at small forward, but he was struggling prior to that game. Unless he does this again, he's better suited for deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:57 am
  • Scott says Clarkson can become an All-Star
    Byron Scott said that Jordan Clarkson has the potential to become an All-Star.

    Advice: "Hopefully in the next couple of years, he keeps progressing," Scott said. "When it’s his fourth or fifth year in this league, hopefully he’s one of those guys that you can look at as possibly being an All-Star." Clarkson will be a restricted free agent this summer, but he recently expressed his desire to stay in Los Angeles. "I definitely want to be here in LA and be a part of this young group and grow," Clarkson said. "Hopefully we can grow into something great. I love L.A." Rotoworld.com Today, 7:48 am
  • P.J. Tucker doesn't want a trade
    P.J. Tucker is hopeful that the Suns will not trade him.

    Advice: "I love being in Phoenix," Tucker said. "It’s been my longest stop of my career and hopefully it continues." Tucker is on the last year of his deal and the Suns are tanking, so he should draw plenty of interest prior to the Feb. 18 trade deadline. The Raptors have been linked with the swingman, but a move to Toronto would be bad news for his fantasy value. To be clear, nothing is imminent. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:51 am
  • Charlie Villanueva scores 16 points in loss
    Charlie Villanueva scored 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting Friday, to go with six boards, three assists, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Villanueva got some extra run tonight with the game well out of reach by halftime, and with the Mavs on a back-to-back set, CV could potentially enter the starting lineup on Saturday if Rick Carlisle elects to rest Dirk Nowitzki. If that's the case, Villanueva could be worth a punt play in DFS, although there's no reason to swoop him up in season-long settings. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:00 am
  • LaMarcus Aldridge double-doubles w/ two swats
    LaMarcus Aldridge double-doubled during Friday's easy win over the Mavs, tallying 14 points on 5-of-11 shooting to go with 10 boards, two assists, two steals, two blocks and one turnover in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Aldridge has been playing extremely well since Tim Duncan (knee) went down, producing averages of 20.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 2.0 blocks and just 1.5 turnovers per game which has been good enough for top-20 value in standard leagues. However, Aldridge has never averaged more than 1.2 swats per game, so now seems like a good sell-high opportunity for a guy that's producing unsustainable numbers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:47 pm
  • Rudy Gobert scores 15 with five steals
    Rudy Gobert made the Bucks offense look like it belonged in the NCAA during an 84-81 win on Friday, scoring 15 points with eight rebounds, one assist, five steals and three blocks in 38 minutes.

    Advice: His five steals are a career high, he made 6-of-7 from the field and he didn't turn the ball over. The Jazz are winning with defense and coach Quin Snyder is OK with that. "I think we are an offensive juggernaut," Snyder said. "We've scored over 80 for two straight games." As for Gobert, he's inside of the top 15 over his last 10 games and is back to being a fantasy monster. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Khris Middleton struggling with Kidd back
    Khris Middleton turned it over a career-high nine times against the Jazz during an 84-81 loss on Friday, scoring 18 points with six rebounds, two assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: This was the nightmare matchup for the Bucks. They can't score consistently outside of the paint and the Jazz lock down the area around the rim. Meanwhile, Middleton continues to struggle since Jason Kidd returned. In fact, he made just 32.7 percent from the field in those six games and has struggled in every facet. He should be better. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Tony Snell starts second half
    Tony Snell started the second half for Jimmy Butler (knee) on Friday against the Nuggets with two points, one rebound and one block in 19 minutes.

    Advice: He barely played in the first half with five minutes and Mike Dunleavy (back) is going to be back Saturday. Snell isn't a great fit in the first unit and isn't a pickup yet. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:48 pm
  • Cam Bairstow gets a start
    Cameron Bairstow scored four points with four rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes during his start for Pau Gasol (hand) on Friday.

    Advice: Bobby Portis picked up most of the minutes and Bairstow looked pretty bad in his 10 minutes, too. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Jose Calderon scores 18 points
    Jose Calderon scored a game-high 18 points with eight rebounds, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against against the Grizzlies on Friday.

    Advice: That's a nice line for a guy who hasn't done much in the past two weeks. Calderon tends to string injuries together, so it makes sense to see if he can stay healthy for two straight games before adding him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:33 pm
  • Jeff Green scores 16 points vs. Knicks
    Jeff Green scored 16 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and no turnovers in 29 minutes against the Knicks in Friday's win.

    Advice: He just thrives in wins and he's found his role off the bench. He's pretty close to his peak and he's putting up sixth-round value in his last 10 games. Green is a hold in all leagues, but selling high makes sense. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Thaddeus Young lights up Kings
    Thaddeus Young scored 14 points with 14 rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 39 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

    Advice: He's finally on the right track again coming off a 16-point, 14-board game. The Nets handed out 29 assists and Thad's seven were a season high. He should be back to being a top-50 guy going forward. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Matt Bonner (calf) heads to locker room
    Matt Bonner went to the locker room with a left calf injury and did not return

    Advice: With Friday's game being a massive blowout, Bonner was finally able to get into the rotation, but he lasted just four minutes. He's not worth owning in any league, not even with Tim Duncan (knee) out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:59 pm
  • Cameron Bairstow starting w/ Pau Gasol out
    Cameron Bairstow will earn the second start of his career on Friday, filling in for Pau Gasol (hand).

    Advice: Bairstow started one game last season, during which he scored two points in 19 minutes, and thus far in 2015-16 he's averaged a mere 3.8 minutes in 11 appearances. He's not an appealing option in any leagues, and Gasol's absence should primarily benefit Taj Gibson and Bobby Portis. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:36 pm
  • Corey Brewer scores game-high 24 points
    Corey Brewer scored a game-high 24 points against Suns on Thursday with one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: The Rockets scored 26 points in fast break, so that kind of output there is right up Brewer's alley. In his previous starts, Brewer only has averages of 9.6 points, 3.4 boards, 1.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 treys on 38.8 percent from the field. If you want to ride him while he's played better, hopefully you're not dropping anything of value. He's not an add in standard leagues yet. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:15 pm
  • Calderon gets 13 minutes, doesn't score
    Jose Calderon (groin) returned to action on Thursday with no points, three assists and one steal in 13 minutes.

    Advice: It's becoming very clear that Langston Galloway is the better option, especially since Galloway's shooting is vastly improved. Calderon is a drop candidate despite his output before his injury last week. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:56 pm
  • Caldwell-Pope out until after All-Star Game
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope suffered a core muscle strain on Wednesday and will be re-evaluated after the All-Star Game.

    Advice: He had an MRI to confirm the injury on Thursday. A core muscle injury is slightly bad news because it's not just a regular groin strain, which was the original diagnosis. Caldwell-Pope owners might have him out well beyond the break, but he's good enough to stash in most leagues. Stanley Johnson is the pickup of the night. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:18 pm
  • Calderon starting, Langston Galloway benched
    Jose Calderon will return to the starting lineup for Thursday's game vs. the Pistons, sending Langston Galloway back to the bench.

    Advice: Calderon isn't anything more than a late-round guy with averages of 7.5 points, 4.0 assists, 1.1 three-pointers, 1.0 steal and 1.1 turnovers per game on 47.5 percent shooting, but his return to the lineup will result in Jerian Grant's minutes taking a massive hit. Galloway also loses a lot of luster with Calderon back in the fold. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:49 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) out Thursday
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. the Knicks, as expected.

    Advice: Stanley Johnson will start in KCP's place on Thursday with Brandon Jennings earning some extended run off the bench. Caldwell-Pope was spotted walking without a limp on Thursday, but it seems unlikely he's able to return to the court until some time after the All-Star break. The upside with Johnson is tremendous, so he needs to be owned in most leagues with KCP likely looking at an extended absence. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:48 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope walking w/out a limp
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) was spotted walking without a limp, but he remains highly unlikely for Thursday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Beat reporter Keith Langlois said that he doesn't anticipate KCP getting back to the court until after the All-Star break, but the fact that he's walking without a limp just a day after what looked like a pretty bad injury is certainly a positive sign regarding his long-term outlook. Stanley Johnson and Brandon Jennings figure to split the majority of Caldwell-Pope's minutes for however long he's out, and both players are worth swooping up in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:26 pm
  • Ian Mahinmi (back) out Friday vs. the Hawks
    Ian Mahinmi (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Mahinmi didn't even travel with the team to Atlanta, but Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star is reporting that Ian could potentially make his return Saturday vs. Detroit. With Mahinmi out on Friday, Myles Turner, Jordan Hill and Lavoy Allen will continue to see an uptick in minutes, with Turner offering the most upside. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:32 pm
  • Jose Calderon probable against Pistons Thurs
    Jose Calderon (groin) is expected to play against the Pistons on Thursday.

    Advice: It's unclear if Calderon starts or will be on a minutes limit, but it looks like he'll return to the court after a four-game absence. Calderon doesn't have much fantasy value at this point, but his return to the Knicks rotation will diminish Langston Galloway's fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:44 am
  • LaMarcus Aldridge feeling like old self again
    LaMarcus Aldridge was back to feeling like his old self after Wednesday's win over the Pelicans.

    Advice: Aldridge scored a season-high 36 points against the Pelicans on Wednesday and said he's feeling like his old slef again. "The ball’s been going in," Aldridge said. "Taking the shots and making them, playing more confident, more like myself, and I think the team has fed off that energy." While Aldridge isn't providing the returns his fantasy owners expected, his last two games could go a long way towards getting his value back on track. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:27 am
  • Tony Snell starts for Jimmy Buckets
    Tony Snell made a spot start for Jimmy Butler (knee) on Wednesday with nine points, seven rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Mike Dunleavy (back) will be back on Saturday and Jimmy Butler (knee) is only day-to-day, so Snell probably won't have much value beyond Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:59 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge scores season-high 36
    LaMarcus Aldridge scored a season-high 36 points against the Pelicans during a 110-97 win on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks.

    Advice: He was 12-of-20 from the field and made all 12 free throws. Aldridge is coming off a season-high 28 from Monday and he's rolling in his last four, averaging 26.0 points, 5.5 boards, 1.5 assists and 2.0 blocks on 64.9 percent from the field. He'll cool off, but this is nice to see for those who overspent on him. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:38 pm
  • Thaddeus Young comes through with 16 & 14
    Thaddeus Young broke out of a funk and had 16 points and 14 rebounds in 35 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Pacers.

    Advice: He didn't do much else, but this was just his third double-double since Jan. 15. He's still a candidate for steals on most nights and we're hoping this is a sign that he's ready to start racking up solid fantasy stats again. He had just eight points and five rebounds in his previous game. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:09 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) to get MRI
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) will get an MRI on Thursday and is extremely unlikely to play against the Knicks on Thursday.

    Advice: He is likely looking at a multiple-game absence. With KCP out, Stanley Johnson's size on the wing should be a nice asset for the Pistons. The team also used 5.1 minutes of Brandon Jennings and Reggie Jackson next to each other in the second half alone. Johnson and Jennings are both worth very long looks with Johnson having the better upside. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:27 pm
  • Tony Snell starting on Wednesday
    Tony Snell will start against the Kings on Wednesday in place of Jimmy Butler (knee).

    Advice: He will get his best chance to earn minutes going forward because Mike Dunleavy (back) could be back this weekend. Leave Snell on the wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:18 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) out for game
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) will not return on Wednesday due to a right groin strain.

    Advice: The slip and fall apparently tweaked his muscle, which is even more worrisome because he couldn't put weight on his leg. Caldwell-Pope has been durable in his career and this is the first groin injury. If he's out, Stanley Johnson would gain even more value. There's a good chance KCP's streak of 207 straight games is in jeopardy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:44 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope goes to locker room
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope went to the locker room in the second quarter on Wednesday.

    Advice: He slipped on his own and did try to limp through the injury momentarily. Caldwell-Pope went to the ground in pain and had assistance to the locker room. He did not put much weight on the foot as he went to the locker room. Stanley Johnson replaced him as the shooting guard and would gain more value should KCP miss time. We'll have an update to start the third quarter. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:28 pm
  • Report: Toronto interested in P.J. Tucker
    The Raptors have reportedly expressed interest in trading for P.J. Tucker.

    Advice: It makes sense as the Raptors’ small forwards have been ravished by injuries, although Tucker would lose a lot of value in Toronto once DeMarre Carroll (knee) is able to get back on the court. It's unclear exactly what assets the Raptors would send to the Suns in order to make this deal happen, but Stein reports that Phoenix is likely seeking a "nice" draft pick as compensation. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:45 am
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 16 points in win
    Jordan Clarkson scored 16 points with three boards, two assists and two steals in 35 minutes vs. the Wolves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Coach Byron Scott has hinted several times that D'Angelo Russell will eventually move back into the starting lineup after the All-Star break, but that would likely push Lou Williams to the bench as opposed to Clarkson. Additionally, Williams is a trade candidate so that would take the pressure off both Russell and Clarkson if he was moved. Clarkson is a huge part of the Lakers' future and his role should be safe no matter what, so his owners don't have too much to be worried about. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:59 pm
  • Khris Middleton scores 21 points in loss
    Khris Middleton scored 21 points on Tuesday vs. the Blazers with eight boards, three assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: His shot wasn't falling and he hit just 7-of-22 from the field and 5-of-8 from the line, but he deserves some credit for staying aggressive and he said this week that his confidence has improved. "Now, I'm not afraid," Middleton said. "Or getting myself down about missing shots or missing an assignment late. The game goes on. You've got another chance. That's definitely a mental thing." Treat him as a top-40 player going forward. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:16 pm
  • Jose Calderon (groin) out Tuesday vs. Boston
    Jose Calderon (groin) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Langston Galloway will again be in the starting lineup tonight, and Jerian Grant should continue to see around 20 minutes off the bench. Calderon was able to go through a full practice on Monday, and head coach Derek Fisher said that Thursday vs. Detroit is a "realistic" target date for Calderon, so we'll be considering Jose on the probable side of the questionable tag for that one. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:53 pm
  • Ian Mahinmi (back) out Wednesday vs. the Nets
    Ian Mahinmi (back) will not suit up for Wednesday's game vs. Brooklyn, but he's hopeful he can return to the court for Friday's game in Atlanta.

    Advice: It'll be Myles Turner, Jordan Hill and Lavoy Allen picking up the slack in Mahinmi's absence on Wednesday, with Turner offering the most upside. Turner is averaging 14.0 points, 8.3 boards and an elite 3.0 swats per game as a starter for the Pacers, and he absolutely needs to be owned in all leagues at this point. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:34 pm
  • Ian Mahinmi (back) questionable for Wednesday
    Ian Mahinmi (back) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Mahinmi has spent the past two games on the sidelines, but he's currently being listed as day-to-day, so there's a chance he's able to get back on the court for Wednesday's game. However, if he's unable to play tomorrow, Jordan Hill would have another opportunity to start with Myles Turner getting all the run he can handle. Check back for another update on Mahinmi following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:35 am
  • LaMarcus Aldridge drops season-high 28 points
    LaMarcus Aldridge scored a season-high 28 points against the Magic during a 107-92 win on Monday, adding four rebounds and five blocks in 32 minutes.

    Advice: His five blocks were also a season high and topped his entire January total of four. It's pretty wild to see Aldridge set a season high tonight at 28. In fact, he scored 28 or more 10 different times before Feb. 1 of last season with the Blazers. Aldridge is definitely trending up. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:06 pm
  • Jeff Green scores 24, Grizzlies win again
    Jeff Green made 8-of-13 from the field for 24 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: It's amazing how well Green plays when the Grizzlies win. In wins this year, Green averaged 14.6 points, 4.9 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 treys. In losses, it's just 8.4 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.5 treys. The Grizzlies are on a four-game winning streak and only James Harden has been better than Green in that span. He has to be owned. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:19 pm
  • Thaddeus Young cooling off these days
    Thaddeus Young scored eight points with five rebounds and one block in 25 minutes against the Pistons on Monday.

    Advice: After he became one of the most improved rebounders in the first month of the season, Thad has cooled off. In his previous 10, Young averaged 13.6 points, 7.9 boards and 1.6 steals. He's still a very good bet to be a mid-round player going forward and flirt with top-50 value. He also had an awesome block on Ersan Ilyasova tonight (in link below). Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:41 pm
  • Pacers uncertain on Mahinmi's return
    The Pacers are uncertain when Ian Mahinmi (back) can return.

    Advice: He is out on Monday and he could miss additional games. That means we'll see more of the Jordan Hill and Myles Turner frontcourt. Turner should be owned everywhere while Hill may have some nice short-term value. Don't expect him to be a great as he was on Saturday, though. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:12 pm
  • Jose Calderon (groin) likely to play Tuesday
    Jose Calderon (groin) returned to practice on Monday, and he is optimistic about playing on Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Calderon has missed the last three games, but he's expected back for Tuesday's contest meaning Langston Galloway's run with the starters should come to a conclusion. That's a shame for fantasy GMs, because Galloway has produced more favorably in that role for our purposes than Calderon has at all this season, averaging just 7.5 points, 3.0 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.1 triples. He is what he is. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:05 am
  • Ian Mahinmi (back) ruled out again on Monday
    Ian Mahinmi (back) will not play on Monday vs. the Cavs.

    Advice: That means Jordan Hill, who exploded for 20 points, seven boards, three assists, a steal and six blocks in 38.5 minutes on Saturday, should again draw the start at the five with rookie Myles Turner lining up at power forward. It's a tough matchup for both players against a Cleveland time beginning to find its groove, and despite another game on the sidelines, there's nothing (yet) to indicate Mahinmi will miss extended time. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:34 am
  • Jose Calderon (groin) out Sunday vs. Warriors
    Jose Calderon (groin) will not play Sunday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Langston Galloway will continue to start with Calderon on the sidelines, with Jerian Grant having the opportunity for some extended run off the bench. Galloway has been nice as a starter this season, owning averages of 11.3 points, 7.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.0 three-pointer, 1.0 steal, 1.0 block and just 0.3 turnovers per game, so he's someone to consider in DFS. Groin injuries can be tricky, and given that Calderon still hasn't practiced, we'll consider him doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. Boston. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:51 pm
  • Kidd praises Khris Middleton
    Bucks coach Jason Kidd heaped praise on Khris Middleton.

    Advice: "He's 24 years old; he's learning how to play," Kidd said. "He wants to be good; he wants to be in that situation. He doesn't shy away from that. He wants to get better. You could see that last year in the second half of the season that we rode him. We played him a lot of minutes and he responded." Middleton is averaging 21.0 points, 6.4 assists, 5.0 boards, 1.4 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five games and could be a top-40 player the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:50 am
  • Jeff Green scores 29 points off the bench
    Jeff Green scored 29 points off the bench on Saturday vs. the Kings, adding two boards, one assist, three steals and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He shot 11-of-16 from the field and was arguably the best Grizzly other than Marc Gasol in this one. Green is now averaging an incredible 26.7 points, 5.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.6 3-pointers over his last three games, so he needs to be owned until he cools off. Green is a trade candidate for the Grizzlies, and his value may not be at a higher point this season than it is right now. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:48 pm
  • Ian Mahinmi (back) ruled out Saturday
    Ian Mahinmi (back) will not play on Saturday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: The big man is dealing with a sore lower back, so the issue likely isn't serious and should be considered day-to-day. Mahinmi actually looked really good next to Myles Turner, so his owners should stick with him if he doesn't miss any more action. Jordan Hill will start next to Turner on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:27 pm
  • KCP will play on Saturday night
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will play against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: He was in a little bit of pain after a dunk on Friday, but it doesn't sound serious. Caldwell-Pope has been logging plenty of minutes and should be ready to roll for tonight. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:57 pm
  • Reggie Jackson, KCP questionable vs. TOR
    Reggie Jackson and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are questionable to play against the Raptors. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:48 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 17 points w/ 8 boards
    Jordan Clarkson scored 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting during Friday's loss to the Clippers, adding eight rebounds, two assists and three turnovers through 36 minutes of action.

    Advice: Clarkson has been a solid late-round guy on the season, but that’s basically where his value maxes out due to a low shooting percentage (43.7 percent from the field) and limited 3-point shooting (1.0 three-pointer per contest). His game translates better to points leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:59 pm
  • Rudy Gobert double-doubles with two swats
    Rudy Gobert double-doubled during Friday's win over the Timberwolves, tallying 14 points, 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and two turnovers through 31 minutes of action.

    Advice: Gobert has been a much more effective scorer over the past two weeks, and during that span he’s been a top-20 guy in standard 9-cat leagues with averages of 12.9 points, 12.6 rebounds and an elite 2.6 swats per contest on 62.5 percent shooting. He was a second-round stud after the break last year, and he could certainly be right there again this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:21 pm
  • Corey Brewer gets 30 minutes in start
    Corey Brewer scored 17 points with two rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes against the Thunder on Friday.

    Advice: The scoring is nice and all, but this wasn't a great line. Brewer doesn't gain too much value in the starting lineup and he's more of a 16-team guy. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:14 pm
  • Corey Brewer sticking in the starting lineup
    Corey Brewer is starting again on Friday against the Thunder.

    Advice: The Rockets are going small again, so that means Trevor Ariza will probably have to guard Serge Ibaka. Brewer may have to guard Kevin Durant, so that'll be fun for him. This lineup also helps Josh Smith and really hurts Clint Capela, who played just 0.1 minutes next to Dwight Howard on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:51 pm
  • Jose Calderon (groin) out against the Suns
    Jose Calderon (groin) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: He tried to play through his injury on Tuesday and it sounds like he'll miss more time. Calderon has been toast on defense anyway, so the Knicks may opt to be extra careful. Langston Galloway gets another start in fantastic matchup tonight while Jerian Grant will back him up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:54 pm
  • Jose Calderon hurt groin on Saturday
    Jose Calderon (groin) said he originally hurt his groin on Saturday and is questionable to play on Friday against the Suns.

    Advice: He lasted 21 minutes on Tuesday and did not play on Thursday. Calderon called his injury a "guessing game" and he's going to monitor it going forward. Calderon is a very slow healer, so expect him to be limited as soon as he's ready to return. Langston Galloway could have a nice night on Friday against the Suns. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:51 am
  • Jeff Green, Courtney Lee available?
    The Grizzlies are gauging the value of Jeff Green and Courtney Lee prior to the Feb. 18 trade deadline.

    Advice: Memphis is not actively pursuing a trade, but they are considering one because both Lee and Green can leave as free agents this summer. Green has been inconsistent this season and has been called out by some of his teammates for a lack of effort at times, but his value might be decent after scoring a combined 51 points over his last two games. Nothing is imminent, but both players could certainly benefit from a change of scenery. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:38 am
  • Khris Middleton scores 15 points in loss
    Khris Middleton scored 15 points with six assists, five boards, three steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Thursday.

    Advice: His playmaking ability has come a long way this season, and he's averaging 6.4 assists per game over his last five while also contributing 21.0 points, 5.0 boards, 1.4 steals and 2.0 3-pointers. He has been a top-30 player in that span, but he will likely be a fourth-round guy the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:44 pm
  • Jeff Green stays hot, scores 21 points in win
    Jeff Green scored 21 points on 9-of-15 shooting in Thursday's win over the Bucks, adding five boards, one assist and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He is hot right now. Green exploded for a season-high 30 points vs. the Magic on Monday, but we have seen this story before. Green tends to disappear for multiple games at a time, but he's at least worth a look while he's playing this well. He will look to keep it going vs. the Kings on Saturday.

  • Ian Mahinmi scores eight in start
    Ian Mahinmi scored eight points in 30 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday, adding six rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

    Advice: He's not a highly-used player on offense, so the move of Myles Turner doesn't really hurt him much. Mahinmi has put up 10th-round value this month, so he might trend down a tad due to a lower rebounding rate and possibly less blocks. He's just an OK player to own. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:35 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge gets an All-Star spot
    LaMarcus Aldridge, DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis, Draymond Green, Klay Thomson, James Harden and Chris Paul were named to the Western Conference All-Star Team.

    Advice: No Zaza Pachulia? Kidding aside, it's pretty hard to argue here outside of Damian Lillard and DeAndre Jordan, but it's hard to take any of these guys off. The Spurs are playing wonderful ball and deserve two guys while you could argue C.J. McCollum has been better than Dame on the whole because of Dame's heel injury. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:22 pm
  • Jose Calderon (groin) ruled out for Thursday
    Jose Calderon (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Raptors, and Langston Galloway will start in his place.

    Advice: Galloway is coming off a 21-point, stat stuffing game from Tuesday, and he tends to play very well when Carmelo Anthony (knee) is on the sidelines, so he's someone to consider in DFS tonight. Groin injuries tend to be tricky, so Calderon going be looking at some extended time on the shelf here. Jerian Grant should also pick up some extra minutes tonight, but Galloway makes for the better DFS target. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:44 pm
  • LaMarcus Aldridge takes care of Houston
    LaMarcus Aldridge scored a game-high 25 points during a 130-99 win over the Rockets on Wednesday, adding 10 boards, five assists and two turnovers on 9-of-13 from the field.

    Advice: He famously deleted his Twitter account after the loss to the Warriors and said after Wednesday's game he wants to "lock in" for the season. His fantasy owners can't complain with Aldridge posting fourth-round value in January. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:53 pm
  • Corey Brewer scores eight in start
    Corey Brewer scored eight points with one rebound and one 3-pointer in 14 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He probably won't stick in the starting lineup for long. Regardless, Brewer scores 33 percent of his points in fast break, so he's going to be extremely inconsistent due to nothing being drawn up for him. Even if he does keep his job, leave him on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:06 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope logs 38 minutes
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope logged 38 minutes vs. the 76ers, scoring 14 points (4-of-11 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs) with four boards, one steal and one block.

    Advice: KCP is in the midst of a career season, notching 14.8 points, 1.6 threes, 3.7 boards, 1.9 assists and 1.6 steals in a whopping 37.5 minutes per game. He played well defensively tonight and his ability to draw fouls helped solidify his scoring vs. a Philly team that's giving up the fifth-most points to SGs. Keep rolling him out there. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:18 pm
  • P.J. Tucker solid in road loss vs. LBJ, Cavs
    P.J. Tucker fared well vs. LeBron James and the Cavs, finishing Wednesday's road loss with 13 points, three 3-pointers, seven boards, two assists, one steal and only one turnover in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Tucker appears to relish the challenge vs. LBJ -- in his first game vs. Cleveland this season, he racked up 14 points, two triples, six boards, two assists and three steals. He's been a borderline 9-cat option since Jan. 1, and most waiver wires feature free agents with greater upside. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:43 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 18 points in loss
    Jordan Clarkson had a solid all-around game vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday, scoring 18 points with seven assists, six boards and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes

    Advice: Kobe Bryant (shoulder) sat this one out, so Clarkson took advantage of some extra looks on the offensive end. He shot 6-of-15 from the field and had a couple of turnovers, but he is capable of putting up big lines like these when the Lakers aren't blown out by the third quarter. Clarkson will look to keep it going vs. the Bulls on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:46 pm
