  • Ty Lawson (hamstring) not likely for Tuesday
    Ty Lawson (hamstring) is not expected to suit up for Tuesday's preseason game vs. Portland.

    Advice: The injury is not considered serious, and the team is likely just being cautious with their star point guard. Lawson averaged 17.6 points, 8.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 1.2 three-pointers, 1.6 steals, and 3.2 turnovers with the Nuggets last season, but there is some concern that he is an injury risk as he was only able to suit up for 62 games. Lawson is a bit of a risk/reward pick this season, and news of this hamstring injury, regardless of its seriousness, could see him fall down a bit on owners’ draft boards. Rotoworld.com

  • JaVale McGee (leg) questionable for Tuesday
    JaVale McGee (leg) could make his preseason debut on Tuesday vs. Portland, or on Friday vs. Golden State.

    Advice: McGee has been going through full practices, and the team wants him to get some action before the regular season begins. However, McGee appears to have lost his starting job to Timofey Mozgov, and although he has plenty of upside, his bonehead decision-making often leads to him spending extended minutes on the bench. The Nuggets signed McGee to a huge four-year deal worth $44 million back in 2012, which could pressure head coach Brian Shaw to give the big man minutes. However, due to McGee's tendency to find himself sitting on the bench, partnered with the fact he'll likely be entering the 2014-15 season in a reserve role, he's not worth much more than a late-round flier in standard leagues.

    Injured
  • Rodney Stuckey (foot) out for preseason
    Rodney Stuckey (sprained right foot) will not suit up for the Pacers' final two preseason games.

    Advice: The injury is not considered serious, and we expect him to be 100 percent for opening night. Stuckey is going to be the starting shooting guard for a Pacers team that doesn't have many offensive weapons, so he could score a lot of points this season. He's worth a late-round selection, but just know he doesn't contribute much to the stat sheet outside of points and free throw percentage. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:56 am
  • David West (ankle) expects to play in opener
    David West (ankle) told reporters on Monday that he suffered a very bad sprain, but he still expects to be ready for opening night.

    Advice: He will be out for the rest of the preseason, and was wearing a walking boot during Monday's practice, so we'll consider him questionable for the regular-season opener. While this is a bad sprain, it's not season ending, and West remains a reasonable mid-round target as he'll have to carry the Pacers' offensive workload with Paul George (foot) on the sidelines. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:32 am
  • Kevin Garnett (illness) will not play on Mon.
    Kevin Garnett (illness) will not play against the Sixers on Monday.

    Advice: He has a stomach bug and missed Sunday's game against the Celtics. Garnett is expected to start this season, but his minutes won't be much higher than 20 per game. Fantasy owners in most leagues can ignore him unless it's a plug-and-play on a light Thursday night or something. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 10:26 am
  • Mario Chalmers needed three stitches
    Mario Chalmers needed three stitches above his left eye after being hit in the face on Saturday.

    Advice: He returned to action and is fine. Chalmers is a huge wild card for the Heat this season. He'll either start at point guard of he could be used as a sixth man at both guard spots a la Jamal Crawford. Regardless, the output in steals and treys make him a nice target late in drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:48 am
  • Zaza Pachulia out with a hammy injury
    Zaza Pachulia (hamstring) will not play against the Knicks on Monday.

    Advice: He suffered the injury on Friday and has been one of the slowest healers in the NBA over the past couple season. Pachulia is not worth drafting in almost any league. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 9:03 am
  • Wiz non-committal on Glen Rice Jr.
    The Wizards have been "totally non-committal" on Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) for the season opener.

    Advice: He hasn't been moving much at practice and it would appear he's closer to doubtful. If the Wizards feel comfortable with Garrett Temple and Otto Porter at the shooting guard spot, there's no need to rush Rice back into the lineup. If you're looking to make a pickup from the Bradley Beal (wrist) fallout, Porter is probably your guy in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 8:56 am
  • Anderson Varejao starting at C on Monday
    Anderson Varejao will start at center against the Bulls on Monday.

    Advice: Tristan Thompson is coming off the bench tonight. Over the weekend, coach David Blatt said he was going to treat this game like a regular season contest, so this is a telling development if what he said was true. Varejao is hurt quite a bit, but he does offer higher upside than Thompson. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 8:38 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) playing pain-free
    Darrell Arthur said that he's playing pain-free basketball.

    Advice: "The trainers are doing a great job of stretching me out, keeping my hips loose and just maintaining my knee, just watching over it," Arthur said. He's still buried on the depth chart and the Nuggets obviously won't play him big minutes to keep him fresh. He can be ignored almost everywhere. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:51 am
  • Luis Scola expected to start on Tuesday
    Luis Scola is expected to start against the Wolves on Tuesday.

    Advice: As it stands right now, he could be the starter on opening night with David West dealing with an ankle injury. Scola has rarely turned in top-100 value because he's only a two-category player, so fantasy owners shouldn't be overly excited about picking him up. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 7:30 am
  • David West (ankle) to have an MRI on Monday
    David West (ankle) will have an MRI on his ankle on Monday.

    Advice: His ankle sprain looked awful on Saturday, but he didn't break it because X-rays were negative. West is likely out for the rest of the preseason and he could be in jeopardy of missing some regular season action. Luis Scola is going to start, but Chris Copeland is probably the preferred target in a vacuum because of his output in 3-pointers and higher upside. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 6:44 am
  • Rodney Hood has another solid outing
    Rodney Hood scored nine points in 27 minutes against the Lakers on Sunday with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's played in four preseason games and has an impressive effective field goal percentage of 67.4 percent. Hood looks like a lock for the rotation despite some early foul trouble issues this month and he could be a threat to make 1.5 triples per game. He's on the radar in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 6:25 am
  • P.J. Tucker ready to earn minutes at PF
    With mounting competition for playing time at small forward, P.J. Tucker said he's ready and able to play power forward as needed.

    Advice: "When I go to [power forward], very rarely are we going to be a mismatch," said Tucker, who will be suspended the first three games of the season. "I can guard any four. And then they're not going to be able to guard us with the way we run the ball and spread the floor." Gerald Green is likely to play more SF this season, and both Marcus Morris and rookie T.J. Warren are also vying for SF minutes. Tucker's ability to play some PF is encouraging for his fantasy outlook, but he's still a flier pick at best. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Enes Kanter struggles in another start at PF
    Enes Kanter scored 14 points with seven rebounds and one assist vs. the Lakers on Sunday, before fouling out in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Kanter made 7-of-15 field goals while going 0-of-3 from downtown and failing to attempt a single free throw. He added zero steals but did block one shot for his second defensive stat of the preseason, while allowing Carlos Boozer to explode for 19 points, nine boards and a career-high-tying six steals. The Kanter-as-PF experiment is still in a testing phase. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Carlos Boozer ties career-high w/ six steals
    Carlos Boozer tied his career-high with six steals during Sunday's exhibition win, adding 19 points, nine rebounds and one block in 28 minutes vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Boozer made 6-of-12 FGs and 7-of-7 FTs, taking full advantage of Enes Kanter's defensive limitations. He looks determined to hold off rookie Julius Randle for the starting PF job and shouldn't have much trouble early in the season. Just keep in mind that once the losses mount coach Byron Scott may cede to reality and unleash Randle to Boozer's detriment. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) making progress
    Glen Rice Jr. (ankle) is making progress in his recovery and was seen taking jumpers at practice Sunday.

    Advice: We expect him back very soon but he should still be considered questionable for opening night. Rice Jr. has a great chance to carve out a significant role in the Wizard's offense with Bradley Beal out so he may be worth a flier late in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:43 am
  • Kevin Garnett (stomach) out Sunday vs. BOS
    Kevin Garnett (stomach virus) will not suit up for Sunday's preseason game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Garnett has been dealing with this stomach virus since Friday, but he should be a go for opening night. Head coach Lionel Hollins has stated that he has no plans of resting Garnett in back-to-back sets, and that he sees Garnett getting more than 20 minutes a game. However, after a season in which he averaged just 6.5 points and 6.6 rebounds, Garnett is merely a late-round flier at best. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:35 am
  • Snyder wants improvement from Enes Kanter
    Head coach Quin Snyder wants Enes Kanter to focus on the details this season, and become a better defensive player.

    Advice: "I want him to get better and commit to improving on both sides of the floor in every facet of the game," Snyder said. "If defense doesn’t come easily, then he has to focus on it. Enes has to make the minor details important, even things like getting into a stance. But he’s [22] years old, and we’re evaluating him against the best players in the world at a young age." Kanter's lack of defensive stats has been the greatest impediment to his fantasy value, and through five preseason games this season, Kanter has recorded just one steal and zero blocks. Currently, Kanter is locked into the starting power forward position with Utah, but if he continues to be useless defensively, he could lose playing time to emerging defensive stud Rudy Gobert. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:49 am
  • Ty Lawson (hamstring) can't finish Sat. game
    Ty Lawson could not finish Saturday's game due to a tight hamstring.

    Advice: Uh oh. It doesn't sound serious and at least it's not to his ankle, but any Lawson injury will trigger the alarm bells. He did have a hamstring injury last season, so this is not something to ignore. He's probably not worth drafting in the top 30 anymore. And if he's going to miss time, Randy Foye will suddenly become quite relevant in fantasy. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:03 pm
  • X-rays negative on David West (right ankle)
    X-rays on Saturday were negative on David West's right ankle.

    Advice: He's dealing with a sprain and coach Frank Vogel said he doesn't know how long West will be out. The team will likely give him an MRI and we'll pass along the information as it becomes available. It's possible West isn't ready for opening night. Chris Copeland and Luis Scola would gain value. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:07 pm
  • Mario Chalmers starts at shooting guard
    Mario Chalmers started at shooting guard against the Spurs on Saturday, scoring 11 points with four rebounds, two assists, three steals, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 21 minutes.

    Advice: He needed to go to the locker room after a shot to the head, but he's fine. Chalmers was briefly in the doghouse, but he seems to be let loose. The steals and triples are going to be there with some dimes mixed in, so he's certainly worth a look as a boom-or-bust pick in the later rounds. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:44 pm
  • David West sprains right ankle on Saturday
    David West suffered a sprained right ankle on Saturday.

    Advice: He rolled it badly after going up for a rebound. West needed some help off the floor and he was putting very little weight on his right foot on his way back to the locker room. There is a chance he misses time in the regular season despite being a tough dude, so fantasy owners might not want to reach for him. If he's out, Luis Scola would be worth a look late in drafts. Chris Copeland could also get some extra run at the four and has a higher upside than Scola. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 5:44 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey (foot) is out on Saturday
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) will sit out on Saturday according to coach Vogel.

    Advice: His foot is just sore and the Pacer's are going to be cautious with him during the preseason. consider him day-to-day for now and expect him to be ready for the season. Stuckey is penciled in as the starting SG for the Pacers this season so if you are in need of a pure scorer, he is worth a late-round pick. C.J. Miles and Chris Copeland are the starting wings on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 2:36 pm
  • Kevin Garnett and Joe Johnson do not practice
    Both Kevin Garnett (stomach virus) and Joe Johnson (rest) did not participate in practice on Saturday.

    Advice: Garnett missed Friday's practice with the same stomach virus so that's obviously something that's lingering. The Nets have only played two preseason games so far. As of right now Johnson should be considered likely to play on Sunday against Boston while Garnett's status is in question. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:11 am
  • Chalmers still on the bench for the Heat
    Mario Chalmers (hip) was brought off the bench despite playing in his old Kansas digs on Friday, finishing with 13 points, five rebounds, two steals, two threes and four turnovers in 20 minutes.

    Advice: The Miami media has caught on to the growing position battle between Chalmers and tonight's starter Norris Cole (five points, two assists, 21 minutes) -- so something is clearly up here. One theory is that Chalmers has essentially been playing the role of shooting guard for years and he could fit better backing up both guard positions, but in any event Chalmers' once-rosy outlook in terms of playing time and role is now in question. Cole didn't exactly run away with anything tonight but he's been playing fairly well this preseason. If you want to drop Chalmers down a few pegs and bring Cole up accordingly feel free, and in any event both players are likely to be affordable on draft day. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:09 pm
  • Pachulia leaves game with hamstring issue
    Zaza Pachulia left Friday's exhibition against the Wolves with a hamstring issue and did not return.

    Advice: Pachulia logged 13 minutes with eight points, one assist and one steal before checking out. We'll update you as soon as know the severity of the injury. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 7:37 pm
  • Kevin Garnett has the stomach flu
    Kevin Garnett (stomach virus) did not practice on Friday.

    Advice: He's entering the season with no lingering issues and he should get over his illness in time for the regular season. Garnett's minutes are going to be limited and with Brook Lopez going (foot) down, Mason Plumlee is an interesting name to think about late in drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:30 am
  • Mario Chalmers back in action on Friday
    Mario Chalmers (hip) will return to the lineup against the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: He missed Tuesday's game but coach Erik Spoelstra said his point guard would have been in the lineup had it been a regular season game. Chalmers has lost some momentum after being benched for Norris Cole, but he has such a huge opportunity that he's worth a look late in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:47 am
  • Rodney Hood looks solid in 28 minutes
    Rodney Hood looked good in his 28 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday, scoring 11 points with five rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He is playing sound ball and the Jazz are going to throw him into the rotation to start the year. He's not going to see more than 22 minutes per game while the team is healthy, so he's only a target in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:28 pm
  • Carlos Boozer looks good on Thursday
    Carlos Boozer played 28 minutes against one of his former teams on Thursday during a 119-86 loss, scoring 17 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block.

    Advice: He's posting some decent scoring lines in the preseason, but the Lakers look lost on defense. Boozer isn't going to be a highly-coveted guy in your draft, but he should put up some nice points and boards totals. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:14 pm
  • Ty Lawson hands out 10 assists
    Ty Lawson handed out 10 assists against the Warriors on Thursday to go with eight points, one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He did only shoot 1-of-8 from the field and he's in a mini-slump after a hot start. Lawson's production won't be the issue and all eyes will be on his ankles. His ceiling makes him a solid target in the third round. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:34 pm
  • Anderson Varejao sits out with sore knee
    Anderson Varejao sat out Wednesday's game with a sore knee.

    Advice: He's OK, but the Cavaliers are going to be cautious with their fragile big man. He should be ready for the start of the season, assuming his knee problem isn't being reported inaccurately. If he does miss time, Tristan Thompson and Brendan Haywood will fill in for him. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:21 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey scores 10 in loss to Cavs
    Rodney Stuckey started at shooting guard and hit just 1-of-6 shots for 10 points against the Cavs.

    Advice: He got to the line, as he's apt to do, and hit 8-of-9 shots, and added four rebounds, three assists and a steal. He's not going to hit any 3-pointers, but if you need a scorer late in the draft, it looks like he's going to be given a lot of opportunity from the thin Pacers this season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:31 pm
  • Glen Rice has right ankle in walking boot
    Glen Rice was in a walking boot to protect his sprained right ankle after Wednesday's game and he's expected to miss time with the injury, leaving him questionable for opening night.

    Advice: He doesn't sound likely to play on Thursday and we're wondering who will start at shooting guard for the Wizards. It could be Otto Porter, who is really a forward, while journeyman Rasual Butler will likely get some run while Rice is out. Xavier Silas' name has come up as well, and PG Garrett Temple started there on Saturday. The Wizards are suddenly dangerously thin at shooting guard. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:18 pm
  • Glen Rice Jr. leaves w/ sprained right ankle
    Glen Rice Jr. left Wednesday's game with a sprained right ankle.

    Advice: He had 11 points and four rebounds in 11 minutes, and should be considered day-to-day for now. He's got a shot at winning the starting job at shooting guard as long as Bradley Beal is out, but his two-game tryout has not gone well so far. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 6:06 pm
  • Andy Varejao tweaks right knee in win
    Anderson Varejao banged knees with another player, left the game and spent the rest of the night having his right knee looked at on the bench.

    Advice: He didn't go to the locker room and coach Blatt expects him to play tomorrow, although we're guessing he'll get the night off if he's dealing with any soreness on Wednesday afternoon. Varejao had six points and four rebounds in 23 minutes before exiting, and should be considered day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:20 pm
  • Zaza Pachulia scores 12 in start for Bucks
    Zaza Pachulia started at center on Tuesday and had 12 points, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block.

    Advice: Larry Sanders, who's dealing with the flu, got the night off, as each regular for the Bucks does in the preseason, so Pachulia got a chance to shine. He's proven he can play and is having a good preseason, but it would likely take an injury or two for him to become relevant in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:49 pm
  • Mario Chalmers (hip) out again on Tuesday
    Mario Chalmers (right hip pointer) will not play on Tuesday, but coach Erik Spoelstra said he'd be active if it was a regular-season game.

    Advice: Norris Cole has started the past two exhibitions at PG and he'll get another start by default. Chalmers hasn't conceded the PG job just yet, however, and he'll have four more preseason games to get on the court and prove he's the man for the job. Fantasy owners should watch this position battle very closely, though both Cole and Chalmers should get healthy minutes regardless of whose starting alongside Dwyane Wade. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:07 pm
  • Hood scores 12 points in start vs. LAC
    Rodney Hood (hip flexor) scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 33 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: Trevor Booker was telling reporters in the locker room about how well Hood played, but it doesn't appear that he's entering the year as the starting small forward despite a dearth of options there for Utah. Plugged in beat writer Jody Gennessy said that he started tonight only because of Alec Burks' (shoulder) absence, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Hood in the starting lineup at some point this season. Unfortunately, a lack of versatility gives him little room for error and he's not a standard league asset. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:47 pm
  • Lawson (ankle) logs 24 minutes on Monday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) played 24 minutes in Monday's preseason game, scoring two points on 1-of-3 shooting (0-for-4 FTs) with three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four turnovers.

    Advice: Lawson has been playing through injuries dating back to his North Carolina days and his ankle will likely be an issue he deals with for the rest of his career, though it's too early to say with any certainty that it will be a major detriment this season. The Nuggets have a lot of depth at guard this season and an incremental downtick in minutes could make sense for all involved. Owners may want to bump Lawson slightly down due to his growing injury risk. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:08 pm
  • Glen Rice Jr. cools off vs. Detroit
    Glen Rice Jr. made 1-of-6 from the field for two points against the Pistons on Sunday, adding just one steal and one turnover.

    Advice: He started in place of Bradley Beal (wrist) and is probably the favorite to do so in the regular season. This is obviously not the start Rice wanted, but he had an awesome summer as the Las Vegas Summer League MVP. The key to Rice's success will be 3-pointers and defense, so he does offer alluring upside late in drafts. Hopefully, he'll be better next time out. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 13, 6:42 am
  • David West to avg. 30-32 minutes this season
    Pacers coach Frank Vogel said that he'll limit David West to 30-32 minutes per game during the regular season.

    Advice: Luis Scola should absorb any minutes left behind by West, who should be a focal point of the Pacers' offense without Paul George. West was limited to 18 minutes as a precaution during Sunday's preseason loss, while Scola chipped in eight points in 19 minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 12, 7:08 pm
  • Shaw: Ty Lawson's ankle causes 'some concern'
    Nuggets coach Brian Shaw admitted that there is "some concern" about Ty Lawson's ongoing left ankle injury, but he's not sure if he'll rest Lawson for any preseason games.

    Advice: "I haven't really been killing him in practice or even in games. I'm cognizant of [the injury]," Shaw said. "But once again, it's something that he's going to have to work himself through ... It's that fine line because you want guys to continue to build up their stamina and their conditioning and be sharp." Lawson, who injured his ankle late last season, is expected to wear a small brace as a precaution this year. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 12, 3:58 pm
  • Ty Lawson (ankle) sits out end of practice
    Ty Lawson (ankle) started Sunday's practice but he did not finish, leaving him questionable for Monday's road game in Chicago.

    Advice: Lawson spent much of his offseason recovering from a severe sprain and "minor bone damage" in his left ankle. It's unclear if he tweaked the ankle or merely sat out the end of practice as a precaution, but fantasy owners should monitor his health closely with the regular season approaching. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 12, 1:23 pm
  • Rodney Hood (hip) will return on Monday
    Jazz rookie Rodney Hood (hip flexor) will make his preseason debut vs. the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: Hood's 3-point shooting is a useful asset for coach Quin Snyder, and he's likely to earn a spot in the rotation as a backup SF and PF. Fantasy owners in deep leagues can watch him as a potential specialist, but he's unlikely to help in typical leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 12, 12:52 pm
  • Zaza Pachulla plays well off Bucks bench
    Zaza Pachulia had 12 points, 11 rebounds and a block in just 19 minutes on Saturday.

    Advice: He looked very good, but as long as guys like Larry Sanders and John Henson are healthy, Pachulia should be nothing more than a role player. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 11, 9:02 pm
  • Anderson Varejao plays well in return home
    Anderson Varejao played well in his native country of Brazil, scoring 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting in 19 minutes.

    Advice: He also only added three rebounds with no defensive stats, which is a little discouraging. However, he did draw the start and could be a huge factor for the Cavs down the stretch if he stays healthy. Varejao is worth a late-round pick due to his rebounding prowess. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 11, 5:50 pm
  • Mario Chalmers leaves with hip injury
    Mario Chalmers left Saturday's game against the Cavs with a hip-pointer injury and will not return.

    Advice: He came off the bench behind Norris Cole again and failed to impress with only 3 points. We will update Chalmer's status as soon as more news comes out but this can't help his case as he fights for playing time. Having said that, there is not a lot of depth in the Heat's backcourt so he may still be worth a pick late in drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 11, 3:52 pm
  • Hornacek unsure of P.J. Tucker's role?
    Coach Jeff Hornacek said deciphering P.J. Tucker's role is "hard."

    Advice: "It was good for us last year to have the energy right from the start of the game.," Hornacek said. "You kind of set the tone in the beginning." Interesting. The coach could just be talking about Tucker's suspension, but we'll still keep an eye on this situation. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 11, 12:05 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey scores 10 in loss
    Rodney Stuckey scored 10 points with four rebounds, one assist and two steals in 25 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: He didn't handle the ball quite as much as he did heading into this game, but he was still fairly involved. Stuckey is a dark horse to lead the team in scoring and should have no problem getting in the teens for points per game. Of course, he doesn't do much else, which makes him a low-end fantasy target. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 10, 6:35 pm
  • Anderson Varejao working with the starters
    Anderson Varejao was seen working in the starting unit during Friday's practice, and he's likely to start when Cleveland takes on Miami on Saturday.

    Advice: It would be a bit of a buzzkill if head coach David Blatt decided not to start Varejao in his home country of Brazil, but this will be a good opportunity for Varejao to show Blatt what he can do as a starter. Blatt has been running with Tristan Thompson as the starting center up to this point, so the battle for the starting center spot is far from over. Varejao is a rebounding beast, but it remains to be seen if he can remain healthy throughout an 82-game season. Still, his upside makes him worthy of a late-round flier in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 10, 1:26 pm
  • David West getting rest on Friday night
    David West will not play on Friday night "for other guys to get minutes," according to coach Frank Vogel.

    Advice: Lavoy Allen is going to get the start tonight while Ian Mahinmi and Chris Copeland will also help out. West is fine and is worth a look in the middle rounds. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 10, 8:14 am
  • Carlos Boozer scores 16 points vs. GSW
    Carlos Boozer scored 16 points with three rebounds, two assists and two steals against the Warriors on Thursday.

    Advice: He fared much better than his six-point game in the opener. Boozer had a minor injury while on defense, but it didn't cost him any playing time. If you're fine with no blocks or assists from Boozer, he's worth a look late in drafts. Rotoworld.com

  • Enes Kanter double-doubles on Thursday
    Enes Kanter double-doubled against the Blazers on Thursday with 16 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and five turnovers on 8-of-13 from the field.

    Advice: He had a solid game on Tuesday and isn't losing ground to Rudy Gobert just yet. Although, Gobert had a massive offensive rebound late in this game and played well with five points, six boards and one block in 19 minutes. Kanter is worth a look late and is more of a two-category player. Rotoworld.com
