  • Pablo Prigioni is questionable Sunday
    Pablo Prigioni (facial contusion) is a game-time decision to face the Heat on Sunday.

    Advice: He left Friday's game vs. the Magic and never returned. Austin Rivers (hand) is also questionable, so Jamal Crawford may be forced to be the backup point guard on Sunday. Prigioni is not a fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:00 am
  • Mike Conley will consider all options in FA
    Mike Conley will consider all options when he becomes a free agent this summer.

    Advice: "I think everything will be on the table when the time comes," Conley said. "I haven’t committed to anything." The Grizzlies might be a little nervous following this quote, as Conley will have the ability to walk at the end of the season as an unrestricted free agent. Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace has already stated that Conley will be the team's "No. 1 priority" this summer, but there will certainly be a lot of competition for his signature.

  • Rodney Hood is mentally stronger this season
    Rodney Hood said that he has been getting better mentally which helped him bounce back on Friday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: "I think it helped just having a short-term memory," Hood said. "I've been getting better mentally, and I remember early in the season letting a situation like this go over from game to game. I'm maturing, so I just wanted to be aggressive, as long as I hit shots or not." Hood was held to eight points on Wednesday vs. the Jazz, but he put that performance behind him and dropped 23 points with three treys on Saturday. Hood is a stud and should be considered a must-start player. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:43 am
  • Watson praises Orlando Johnson
    Suns coach Earl Watson spoke highly of newly-acquired guard Orlando Johnson.

    Advice: "He plays with his heart like [P.J. Tucker]," Watson said. "He’s athletic. He’s shooting the ball well from 3 right now. But what we need more than anything right now is like-minded players. He has a like-minded attitude coming from the Spurs program. You know the attitude he’s going to have. He’s going to play the right way." Johnson is on a 10-day deal and will look to impress the Suns during Saturday's game vs. the Jazz. He's not on the fantasy radar for now. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:29 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
  • 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
  • Trey Burke (flu) not traveling to Phoenix
    Trey Burke (flu-like symptoms) will not be traveling with the team to Phoenix for Saturday's game.

    Advice: While Burke could technically catch a later flight to Arizona, it seems much more likely that he'll spend Saturday's game on the sidelines, which would result in heavy minutes for Rodney Hood and Raul Neto. Hood will get an extremely favorable matchup tomorrow, and he'd be someone to target in DFS. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:37 pm
  • 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
  • Rodney Hood scores 23 points vs. Bucks
    Rodney Hood scored a game-high 23 points during a win over the Bucks on Friday with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

    Advice: That's a bounce-back from his rare dud on Wednesday. Hood has emerged as one of the best sophomores in the NBA and the Jazz continue to build the offense around him. Expect him to keep flirting with top-50 value even when Alec Burks (leg) comes back. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:29 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
  • J.R. Smith drains five triples, swats a shot
    J.R. Smith drained five more triples during Friday's heartbreaking loss to the Celtics, to go with 20 points, three rebounds, one assist, one block and three turnovers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Swish did pick up a questionable foul during the closing minutes of the game, which essentially cost Cleveland the win, but at least his stats were nice. He's been a mid-round guy over the past month, and he's fully capable of going stretches producing early-round value. The horrendous start is a distant memory. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:54 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
  • 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
  • Trey Burke (illness) will not return Friday
    Trey Burke (flu-like symptoms) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Burke will finish his evening with just one rebound and one assist to his credit, and we're going to consider him questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Suns. If he's out tomorrow, Rodney Hood will likely get all the run he can handle. Burke's game translates better to points formats, but he's not worth owning in standard 8-cat and 9-cat leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:52 pm
  • Trey Burke (nausea) heads to locker room
    Trey Burke left Friday's game with a case of nausea, and he is questionable to return.

    Advice: He's going to be re-evaluated after half-time, so we'll have another update then. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:00 pm
  • Pablo Prigioni heads to the locker room
    Pablo Prigioni exited Friday's game vs. the Magic with a facial contusion, and he is doubtful to return.

    Advice: The Clippers are running out of backup point guards with Austin Rivers (hand) not playing tonight. If Prigioni and Rivers are forced to miss time, it'll be Chris Paul playing massive minutes with Jamal Crawford earning some extended run off the bench. Lance Stephenson could also pick up some extra minutes in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:57 pm
  • Suns signing Orlando Johnson
    The Suns will sign Orlando Johnson to a 10-day deal.

    Advice: The Suns have no healthy point guards on their roster and are playing three shooting guards and P.J. Tucker out of position. This season Johnson is averaging 15.2 points, 5.1 boards, 2.7 assists, 0.5 steals and 1.9 treys with the Austin Spurs this year. He's 26 years old, was a second-round pick in 2012 and hasn't been in the NBA since 2013-14. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:21 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Trey Burke gets just 16 minutes in win
    Trey Burke played just 16 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, finishing with just two points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal, as he hit just 1-of-4 shots.

    Advice: Burke hasn't cracked the 20-minute mark in four straight games and as long as that's the case, he's not worth having in your lineup. He could easily make a comeback at any time this season, but starting PG Raul Neto is eating up his minutes these days, along with other Jazz role players. Even guard Erick Green saw a season-high three minutes tonight and played in the first half. And in case you're wondering, Neto is not a guy you want to be looking to own right now, despite the decent run. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:59 pm
  • Rodney Hood struggles on 3-of-12 shooting
    Rodney Hood hit just 3-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for eight points and a block on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was piping hot coming in, with his last single-digit scoring game coming on Jan. 6, while he had scored between 16 and 29 points in each of his last six games. He'll bounce back soon, but never got it going against the strong defense of Gary Harris tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:48 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
  • J.R. Smith makes four 3s, gets four steals
    J.R. Smith shot just 5-of-14 from the field on Wednesday, scoring 14 points, but four of his makes came from downtown and he added a season-high-tying four steals.

    Advice: Smith also chipped in three rebounds and a block without any turnovers, enough to pacify most fantasy owners. He's a streaky scorer and occasional duds are to be expected, but the 12th-year guard is anchoring his value with 2.4 triples and 1.1 steals per game. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:12 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Rodney Hood fouls out, scores 19
    Rodney Hood scored 19 points with five rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers before fouling out against the Bulls on Monday.

    Advice: Hood has a knack for getting two quick fouls, but this was his first time fouling out in his career on six personals. On the positive side, he's quickly becoming one of the best wings in pick-and-roll and that's become the Jazz's new pet play. Hood has top-40 value in 2016 and should flirt with top-50 value going forward. It's all good with the Hood. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:38 pm
  • 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
  • J.R. Smith scores 19 points
    J.R. Smith scored 19 points with three rebounds, two steals and four 3-pointers in 42 minutes against the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: He had a great January, averaging 14.8 points, 2.9 boards, 1.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 3.0 treys on 45.4 percent from the field. He's playing about 16.3 minutes per game with LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love in 2016, but he's still managed to get his shots. He's flirting with top-50 value in 2016. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:14 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
  • 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
  • Mike Conley held to eight points in win
    Mike Conley was held to just eight points on Saturday vs. the Kings, adding seven assists, four boards and one steal.

    Advice: The minutes were there, but Conley wasn't very active on offense and shot 3-of-6 from the field with two turnovers. He hasn't found his stride since returning from his Achilles injury, averaging just 10.8 points, 6.6 assists, 4.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.6 3-pointers over his last five games. He is also shooting 33.3 percent from the field in that span which means the buy-low window is wide open. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:09 pm
  • 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
  • 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
  • Rodney Hood scores 22 points with two treys
    Rodney Hood scored 22 points on 8-of-16 shooting Friday, to go with four assists, two 3-pointers, one rebound, one steal and two turnovers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Hood has been tearing it up over the past month, owning averages of 18.6 points, 4.0 boards, 2.9 assists, 3.1 treys and just 1.6 turnovers during that span on 45.2 percent shooting from the field which has been good enough for third-round value in 9-cat leagues. His usage rate has also jumped to 24.7 through the month of January, and he’s been extremely effective in pick-and-roll sets with Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert. Owners shouldn’t fear the return of Alec Burks, as Hood has clearly earned his minutes in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:18 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
  • Rodney Hood says he is more confident
    Rodney Hood said that he is gaining more confidence in his shot.

    Advice: "I feel like I’m shooting better, especially compared to the first half of the season," Hood said. "I’m shooting it more consistent. I’ve just been working on it." Hood has been sensational over his last five games, averaging 20.6 points, 4.6 boards, 3.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 3.6 3-pointers on 43.8 percent shooting from the field. He is a must-start player until further notice. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:42 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
  • Mike Conley held to five points in win
    Mike Conley was held to just five points on 1-of-8 shooting in Thursday's blowout win over the Bucks.

    Advice: He saved his line with nine assists, one board and one steal, but he played just 24 minutes due to the lopsided score. Conley hasn't established a rhythm since returning from his Achilles injury, averaging just 12.2 points, 7.2 assists, 3.6 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.2 3-pointers on 35.3 percent shooting from the field. He should get it going soon and is a prime buy-low target. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:00 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.

  • 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
  • Rodney Hood leads Utah w/ 24 pts & full line
    Rodney Hood led Utah with 24 points, four rebounds and four assists during Wednesday's home victory, connecting on 8-of-16 shots including four 3-pointers.

    Advice: Hood also went 4-of-4 from the FT line with one steal, and he committed just one turnover in 31 minutes. He may lose some touches once Derrick Favors resumes a full workload offensively, but Hood is still a promising hold for rest-of-season value. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:26 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
  • J.R. Smith stays hot for coach Tyronn Lue
    J.R. Smith scored 18 points in 23 minutes on Wednesday, making 7-of-11 shots (4-of-6 from downtown) with three boards, four assists and four steals.

    Advice: Smith was averaging 37.0 minutes per game since Tyronn Lue took over head coaching duties on Jan. 23, and he might have reached that mark tonight if it weren't a blowout. He was averaging just under 30 minutes under coach David Blatt, so the regime change is paying dividends for Swish's owners. He's more than a 3-point specialist and needs to be active in all lineups.

  • 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
