  • Anthony Bennett aggravates ankle in return
    Anthony Bennett "re-sprained his ankle a little" on Sunday, according to Flip Saunders, but Bennett downplayed the injury after the game.

    Advice: "It felt good," he said. "It just got a little sore near the end, but I tried to push through." Saunders also said that Bennett looked "rusty," which is understandable considering he'd missed more than a month of action. He belongs on the waiver wire while getting back up to speed.

  • Jared Dudley (back) confirms he'll play Wed
    Jared Dudley (back) confirmed that he'll be ready to play vs. the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Advice: "I'm 100% fine," he wrote on Twitter. "Just being pre cautious, I'll be ready [Wednesday]." This is excellent news for Bucks fans and any deep-league owners who have Dudley on their bench. He has had spurts of sustained value this year but is too risky for use in most leagues given the recurring nature of his back injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Dion Waiters (ankle) starts, gets 18 points
    Dion Waiters (ankle) started Sunday's road win vs. the Suns and finished with 18 points 8-of-20 shooting with one 3-pointer, three rebound, one assist and three turnovers.

    Advice: He struggled on Saturday with just three points on 1-of-4 shooting, possibly due to his sore ankle, but the injury didn't appear to limit him tonight. The bad news is that this line typifies the reasons why Waiters is a poor fantasy option -- he shoots inefficiently and contributes paltry rebounds, assists, steals and blocks, so one off-shooting night can tank his week.

  • T.J. Warren notches career-high 18 pts Sunday
    T.J. Warren sank 8-of-10 shots to finish Sunday's home loss with a career-high 18 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

    Advice: The Suns' playoff hopes to a massive blow with tonight's loss, but Warren's emergence as a reliable bench scorer provides another silver lining for their season. He did his damage in 29 minutes tonight, without any turnovers, but fantasy owners should still be skeptical -- efficient shooting hasn't amounted to much given his 17.8 minutes per game over the past three weeks.

  • C.J. Miles scores game-high 28 points in win
    C.J. Miles poured in a game-high 28 points to help Indiana beat the visiting Mavericks on Sunday, making 9-of-12 field goals with five 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: Miles also went 5-of-6 at the FT line, richly rewarding owners who gambled on him despite the return of Rodney Stuckey (calf). He's been good enough to keep in all active lineups, especially since the playoff-hungry Pacers are heading into a four-game week. Rotoworld.com

  • Chandler Parsons drops 27 pts with 10 boards
    Chandler Parsons flourished against the Pacers on Sunday, scoring 27 points on 11-of-20 shooting with 10 boards, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Parsons got some extra looks on offense with Monta Ellis (calf) in street clothes, and it looks like his owners can expect a modest bump in production down the stretch. Parsons will get a favorable matchup vs. Kyle Singler and the Thunder on Wednesday, so owners in daily leagues should give him a long look. Rotoworld.com

  • Iman Shumpert (ankle) held out as precaution
    Iman Shumpert "jammed" his left ankle during Sunday's game and coach David Blatt didn't seem overly concerned about the injury.

    Advice: "I think he wanted to come back in there but we held him out for precautionary reasons," Blatt said. "I believe he'll be OK." Shumpert didn't return after the injury and we'll leave him on the injury report as a precaution, though it certainly helps that Cleveland doesn't play again until Thursday. If Shumpert does miss time, expect guys like James Jones, Shawn Marion and possibly Mike Miller to fill the void. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Green's offense is lonely in road defeat
    Jeff Green had one rebound without any assists, steals or blocks vs. the Spurs, but he chipped in 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting with a pair of 3-pointers.

    Advice: The offense is welcomed by Green's owners, but he'll need to produce more well-rounded lines to maintain the top-80 value which he's carved out over the past three weeks. He's typically a decent source of rebounds with a trickle of defensive stats, so don't read too much into tonight's game. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee can't heat up offensively
    Courtney Lee had another cool night offensively on Sunday, hitting 4-of-11 FGs to finish with 10 points, one rebound, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Lee's playing time was inflated by Tony Allen's absence with a sore hamstring, but Lee still didn't do enough to justify plucking him off the waiver wire. He came in shooting 32.7 percent from the field in March, and 23.7 percent from downtown, rendering him unusable in all but the deepest fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Henry Walker logs 34 minutes for battered MIA
    Henry Walker made his ninth start of the season on Sunday, posting six points, five rebounds, one assist and one block in 34 minutes during Miami's win vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Walker gives the Heat some much-needed frontcourt depth without benefiting fantasy owners -- his 34.3 percent shooting is reason enough to avoid him in standard leagues. Owners looking for a cheap daily-league option should monitor Miami's injury report, however, as Walker may be forced into a 35-minute role on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 6:10 pm
  • Michael Beasley has a stinger in his elbow
    Michael Beasley suffered a stinger in his elbow during Sunday's game vs. the Pistons, and he was unable to return after just seven minutes of action.

    Advice: Beasley's elbow flared up and he didn't have any mobility in his arm after the game, but the Heat didn't seem to be overly concerned and head coach Erik Spoelstra is hopeful that he will play vs. the Spurs on Tuesday. Beasley isn't a great option in fantasy leagues and hasn't been getting a lot of minutes even with the Heat dealing with a lot of injuries, so owners in most leagues should probably leave him on the wire.

  • Jared Dudley (back) will not play on Monday
    Jared Dudley will not play vs. the Hawks on Monday in order to give his ailing back some extra rest.

    Advice: Dudley has been able to play in the past two games for the Bucks, but they are wanting to be cautious with him since he had missed six consecutive games earlier in March. Dudley should be fine for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls, but he is still not a fantasy option outside of deeper leagues. Expect O.J. Mayo and Jerryd Bayless to see a few extra minutes off the bench Monday. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 4:52 pm
  • Michael Beasley bruises elbow Sunday vs. DET
    Michael Beasley is questionable to return on Sunday due to a bruised elbow.

    Advice: The Heat are coming apart at the seams, beginning the night extremely short-handed before losing both Beasley and Luol Deng (knee) on Sunday. If Beasley misses any time, James Ennis and Henry Walker will be thrust into bigger roles out of necessity. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Covington scores 19 points w/ five 3s
    Robert Covington led the 76ers' balanced attack on Sunday, scoring 19 points with five 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in a tough loss to the Cavs.

    Advice: He shot 7-of-13 from the field overall and only turned the ball over once in 31 minutes, the first time he's exceeded the 30-minute mark since Feb. 23. This was a stellar bounce-back for Covington, who had just two points on Friday, and he has a high enough ceiling to be active in all but the shallowest leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyreke Evans starts slow, sits in blowout win
    Tyreke Evans got off to a slow start on Sunday and he finished with only nine points, three rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in 23 minutes.

    Advice: The Pelicans are now 21-14 with Evans starting at point guard. His run as the lead guard may end in the near future, however, as coach Monty Williams expects Jrue Holiday (leg) to return before the end of the regular season. That would do Evans' fantasy value no favors, but he's safe to keep locked into all active lineups -- today's low playing time was due largely to the lopsided score, and Evans should fare much better vs. the Lakers on Wednesday.

  • Robbie Hummel (hand) returns with six points
    Robbie Hummel (hand) posted six points on 2-of-4 shooting during his return on Sunday, adding one rebound and one assist in 18 minutes of action.

    Advice: Hummel's return is excellent news for the banged-up Wolves but he's unlikely to make a dent in fantasy leagues. With season averages of 4.2 points, 0.3 triples, 2.8 rebounds and 0.6 assists, it's logical to leave Hummel on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 3:22 pm
  • Anthony Bennett (ankle) quiet in return Sun
    Anthony Bennett (leg) returned to action on Sunday with two points, one rebound, two assists and one steal in 12 minutes off Minnesota's bench.

    Advice: The former No. 1 pick hadn't played since a nine-minute stint in late February, so it's no surprise to see the Wolves ease him into the rotation. A fully-healthy Bennett could make some noise down the stretch, but time is quickly running out with only nine games left on the schedule. Better luck next year. Rotoworld.com

  • Alan Anderson scores nine pts w/ two steals
    Alan Anderson scored nine points on 3-of-6 shooting (2-of-2 from the charity stripe), with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists and two steals through 28 minutes of action.

    Advice: Anderson is a guy that can do a little bit of everything, and he's seen his minutes increased over the past two games with Thaddeus Young (knee) unavailable. He's not going to blow you away with his production, but if you're in a deep league and looking for a low-end steals/3-point specialist, Anderson could be your guy. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 3:05 pm
  • Nick Young (knee) to be reevaluated in a week
    Nick Young (knee) will be reevaluated in one week, but he remains without a timetable to return.

    Advice: This practically rules him out for the rest of the week, and head coach Byron Scott also said that Young would need at least another week of conditioning after that. There is a good chance that Young doesn't play again this season, but Scott refuses to shut him down. At this point in the season, it's safe to leave Young on the wire in just about all leagues.

  • Earl Clark shoots 2-of-10 off Nets' bench
    Earl Clark came off Brooklyn's bench to score four points in 20 minutes on Sunday, making just 2-of-10 field goals with eight rebounds and two blocks.

    Advice: Clark, who played for L.A. in 2012-13, was acquired by the Nets on a 10-day contract this Friday. He could stick around all season if Thaddeus Young (knee) is forced to miss more time, but there's minimal incentive to add the career 40.5 percent shooter in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 3:02 pm
  • Bojan Bogdanovic plays nine minutes Sunday
    Bojan Bogdanovic was very quiet in nine bench minutes vs. the Lakers, finishing with only two points and one rebound.

    Advice: The Croatian rookie has averaged 11.3 points and 1.4 threes since the All-Star break, but he's a poor source of anything beyond 3-pointers. Alan Anderson logged 28 minutes tonight, usurping Bogdanovic's role, and his owners should be scouring the waiver wire for a more reliable source of value. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 2:57 pm
  • Tony Allen (hamstring) won't play vs. Spurs
    Tony Allen (hamstring) will not play vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: Vince Carter will step into the starting lineup, but Jeff Green will probably see the biggest boost in value off the bench. Allen has no timetable to return, but considering how tricky hamstring strains can be, The Grizzlies will likely be cautious moving forward. Allen should be considered closer to doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Kings. Rotoworld.com

  • Iman Shumpert (ankle) will not return Sunday
    Iman Shumpert was forced to leave Sunday's game vs. the 76ers and will not be able to return.

    Advice: Shumpert was able to walk off the floor under his own power, but the Cavaliers have no reason to risk his health and they may have just decided to keep him out as a precaution. We will update his status once we know more, but we will go ahead and consider him questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Heat. If he is unable to play, J.R. Smith would have to log big minutes while Matthew Dellavedova may see a few extra minutes off the bench as well. Shumpert finished today's game with nine points, three steals and one board in 11 minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Otto Porter comes out of nowhere w/ 15 pts
    Otto Porter scored in double-figures for the first time since March 3 on Sunday, putting up 15 points on 4-of-7 shooting (5-of-7 from the line), with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, one steal and one turnover over 18 minutes of action.

    Advice: This line has fluke written all over it, as Porter had posted doughnuts in the scoring column in four of his five past outings. The minutes did jump dramatically tonight, but 18 minutes isn't enough time for him to repeat these results on a consistent basis. Needless to say, we need to see Porter with a few more games like this before recommending him as an add in any league. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer posts all-around line in win
    Corey Brewer scored 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting, with five rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, two blocks and three turnovers through 22 minutes of action.

    Advice: Brewer continues to find ways to show up in the box score despite only playing 25 minutes per game for Houston. He's averaging 12.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 0.9 three-pointers per game through the month of March, making him a quality deep league asset. Rotoworld.com

  • Trevor Ariza does a little bit of everything
    Trevor Ariza was his usual multi-category self during Sunday's win over the Wizards, posting 13 points on 3-of-9 shooting (5-of-5 from the line) to go with eight rebounds, two 3-pointers, two assists, two steals and four turnovers through 38 minutes of action.

    Advice: Ariza is logging heavy minutes for the Rockets on a nightly basis, and his ability to fill up every category on the stat sheet while offering elite steals totals has him turning in early-round value on the season. Get ready for him to put on a show during the Rockets upcoming four-game week. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin (hamstring) out again on Sunday
    Kevin Martin (hamstring) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Sunday.

    Advice: Martin is targeting a return next week but he remains iffy to play in Monday's game vs. the Jazz, and cautious owners may want to hedge their bets in weekly leagues. The Wolves got a few healthy bodies back into the lineup with Anthony Bennett and Robbie Hummel returning on Sunday, but they'll still lean heavily on sixth-man Chase Budinger. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Bennett (ankle) will return Sunday
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) will make his return Sunday vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: The Timberwolves have been absolutely devastated by injuries, so Bennett will provide the team with some much-needed frontcourt depth. That being said, he's been out since Feb. 20, so he'll more than likely have his minutes held in check today as his conditioning isn't likely where it needs to be. Until he's logging major minutes for Minnesota, he belongs on the waiver wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:57 am
  • Robbie Hummel (hand) will make return Sunday
    Robbie Hummel (hand) will be available to play Sunday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Hummel has been out since Jan. 25 with a broken hand, so he'll more than likely have his minutes limited today. He'll give the Wolves some much-needed backcourt depth, but until he becomes a major part of the rotation, he belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Dion Waiters scores just three points in loss
    Dion Waiters scored just three points on 1-of-4 shooting in a loss to the Jazz on Saturday, adding two boards, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Waiters had scored in double digits in each of his last four games, so this was a frustrating line for any owners relying on him tonight. Waiters is still locked into a starting role moving forward with Andre Roberson on the shelf, and he will have a chance to bounce back vs. the Suns on Sunday. That being said, he is far from a must-own player in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Arron Afflalo scores 21 points vs. Nuggets
    Arron Afflalo scored 21 points against the Nuggets on Saturday with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer on 8-of-11 from the field.

    Advice: Revenge game? Afflalo didn't really have beef with Denver, but this was a very, very overdue positive showing. His two steals and 21 points were the most he's produced in a Blazer uniform. We'll need to see it again, especially considering he's been posting some single-digit usage rates this month. Rotoworld.com

  • Will Barton scores 12 off the bench
    Will Barton scored 12 points on 6-of-8 from the field against the Blazers on Saturday with seven boards, three assists, one steal and one block in 25 minutes.

    Advice: He was known as Will the Thrill and the People's Champ in Portland as one of the fan favorites and he was quite comfortable tonight. Plus, he did the ol' inbounds pass of an opponent and was able to get an easy dunk. Barton is doing a fine job of adding multiple stats for his fantasy owners, but it's going to sting to have him on your roster because the Nuggets are off until Wednesday while tons of teams will play two games in that span. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:33 pm
  • Tony Allen (hamstring) questionable for Sun
    Tony Allen (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: He did not return from his hamstring strain on Friday and he's dealt with hamstring strains before this season, so Allen has a decent chance to miss this game. If he's out, expect Jeff Green to step up in the starting lineup while Courtney Lee will also benefit. Rotoworld.com

  • Robbie Hummel questionable to play
    Robbie Hummel (hand) is questionable to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

    Advice: He is hopeful to return this season, but being questionable for Sunday is a little optimistic. He would likely get some forward minutes upon his return, but keep him on the wire in just about all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:22 pm
  • Anthony Bennett (ankle) is questionable
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) is questionable to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

    Advice: He has been ruled out for games dating back to Feb. 20 and maybe he can get back in the rotation. The Wolves are rolling with just eight guys in their rotation and only seven of them are getting consistent double-digit minutes, so Bennett would likely get some run. He can stay on the wire until he's officially a go, though. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:21 pm
  • Kevin Martin, Bennett & Hummel are questionable
    Kevin Martin (hamstring), Anthony Bennett (leg) and Robbie Hummel (hand) are questionable to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

    Advice: Martin said on Friday that he's hoping for his hamstring to heal by next week, so we still don't like his chances to play. Plus, the Wolves continue to list him as questionable as if they didn't even hear his comments. Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger benefit the most with Budinger serving as a solid add in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Barton double-doubles off the bench
    Will Barton double-doubled off the bench on Friday, scoring 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with 10 rebounds and two assists in just 20 minutes.

    Advice: Barton continues to hang onto late-round value in his low-minute role and it's enough to keep throwing kindling on the fire. If he can see some key guys ahead of him call it an early season, there is potential for him to post some really active lines. On the other hand, the Nuggets finish the fantasy playoffs with a pair of three-game weeks so that is working against him. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:51 pm
  • Green goes for 16 and eight off the bench
    Jeff Green scored 16 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 7-of-12 shots (including two threes) with eight rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Tony Allen got knocked out of the game with a hamstring injury and the rest of the backcourt isn't exactly a picture of health. Green's minutes become solidified if Allen misses any time and he might be in line for a few more touches too. He's on a bit of a hot streak with mid-round value over the last two weeks, but the Grizzlies' pair of three-game weeks offsets some of the buzz that might create. Give him a look with late-round expectations. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyreke goes for 25 and 10 in revenge game
    Tyreke Evans scored 25 points on 10-of-15 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in the Pelicans' 102-88 win over his old Kings squad on Friday.

    Advice: Evans is towing the line big-time for his fantasy owners as he continues to produce despite an ankle injury. Anthony Davis added 24 points on 11-of-26 shooting with nine rebounds, one steal and six blocks in the win. Rotoworld.com

  • Bogdanovic scores 18 points with two threes
    Bojan Bogdanovic hit 7-of-12 shots (including two threes) for 18 points and four rebounds in 32 minutes off the bench on Friday.

    Advice: Bogdanovic should see enough touches to give owners a shot at some points and threes, but that's just about it. Rotoworld.com

  • Alan Anderson plays 30 minutes on Friday
    Alan Anderson logged 30 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: With Thaddeus Young (knee) looking doubtful for Sunday's game and possibly more, this type of workload seems like a decent bet until Young gets back. Anderson has a week of late-round value under his belt and isn't going to blow you away, but if you need shooting guard stats he could be worth a look. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:43 pm
  • Henry Walker scores 12 points vs. ATL
    Henry Walker scored 12 points with nine rebounds, five assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: Udonis Haslem played 38 minutes on Wednesday and now Walker gets 40 minutes tonight. This is your 2014-15 Miami Heat right now. Walker has buried at least three 3-pointers in four of his last five, averaging 8.4 points, 4.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.8 treys in that span. He's worth a look in standard leagues, especially with Dwyane Wade dealing with a knee issue. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Covington puts up a dud vs. Clippers
    Robert Covington didn't make any of his four attempts from the field and made both free throws for two points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one turnover in 24 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

    Advice: Yuck. Covington was on fire on Wednesday with 25 points and on Tuesday with 21 points, but he was on the other end of the spectrum. He was dreadful in his three previous games before that hot stretch, so the inconsistency has been very annoying. He's still worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:04 pm
  • Tony Allen (hamstring strain) leaves game
    Tony Allen suffered a left hamstring strain on Friday.

    Advice: He's had hamstring issues already this season and the Grizzlies are being blown out, so Allen is likely out for the game. If he needs to miss time, Courtney Lee and Jeff Green should pick up his minutes. Green would start and gain the most value. Allen finished with four points, four boards and one block in 19 minutes.

  • Kevin Martin, Ricky Rubio ruled out Friday
    Kevin Martin (hamstrings) and Ricky Rubio (ankle) will not play against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: Martin said he expects to be better next week, so he is probably going to miss at least a couple more games. Andrew Wiggins has been logging major minutes and will look to strength his case for Rookie of the Year. Lorenzo Brown will be getting most of Martin's minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Covington back with the starters Fri.
    Robert Covington will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Covington has been en fuego over the last two, draining 11 three-pointers while offering a little bit of everything. Make sure you have him in your active lineup. It's not clear at this point if Jason Richardson will be rested, or if he's simply coming off the bench, but he's been pretty awful lately so his status shouldn't matter in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 3:21 pm
  • Kevin Martin (hamstring) targeting next week?
    Kevin Martin (hamstrings) said his strained hamstrings should be better and good to go by next week.

    Advice: He's technically listed as questionable for tonight, but this update suggests he's not going to play. With Martin out, Andrew Wiggins has been playing a ton of minutes while Lorenzo Brown is also getting minutes in the 30s. Chase Budinger also benefits as the best floor-spacing guy on the team. Martin can be dropped in most formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Nets sign F Earl Clark to 10-day contract
    The Nets have signed F Earl Clark to a 10-day contract.

    Advice: This move may have something to do with Thaddeus Young's recent knee injury, and Clark will give the Nets some much-needed depth at the power forward spot. That being said, he's unlikely to earn significant minutes right out the gate, so it's safe to leave Clark on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley has awful shot in win
    Jared Dudley returned from his kneecap injury on Thursday, scoring two points with one rebound, one assist and one turnover.

    Advice: He had the worst shot you'll see all season with a backwards shot in the corner. We know that doesn't make sense, so click the link below to check it out. Dudley can be left on the wire in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Miles scores 26 points in a loss
    C.J. Miles was the good version of himself against the Bucks on Thursday, making 7-of-14 from the field for 26 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He briefly left the game due to a leg injury and was able to return about seven minutes later in real time. Miles has been able to knock down 2.1 treys per game in his previous 16 games since the break, but he's been detrimental to most fantasy categories. Congrats if you streamed him on the light night. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley (knee) will play Thursday
    Jared Dudley (knee) will play Thursday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Dudley had some good stretches during the season, but his play has really fallen off during the month of March with averages of just 2.5 points and 3.0 rebounds per game on 22.2 percent shooting from the field. He'll likely be eased back into the rotation, so it's safe to leave Dudley on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Bennett (ankle), Hummel (hand) out again Fri.
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) and Robbie Hummel (hand) will not play Friday vs. Houston.

  • Kevin Martin (hamstring) questionable Friday
    Kevin Martin (hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Houston.

    Advice: Martin was "available to play" on Wednesday, but he never left the bench. Owners can expect to get another update on Martin following Friday morning's shootaround, and if he's unable to go, Chase Budinger and Lorenzo Brown will again be forced into heavy minutes for the short-handed Timberwolves. Budinger has been playing some great ball lately, and he'll be worth a look in daily leagues in Martin is indeed unavailable. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer (oblique) probable for Friday
    Corey Brewer (oblique strain) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Brewer hasn't missed any time with his oblique strain, so there's no reason to think he won't be able to give it a go on Friday. We'll let you know if that changes. Rotoworld.com

  • Dion Waiters scores 14 in start
    Dion Waiters, who was benched for the start of the second half on Tuesday, started for the Thunder on Wednesday and had 14 points, a steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-11 shooting.

    Advice: Waiters' line was actually pretty decent due to the final score of 130-91 looking more like an old-school Globetrotters' score over the Washington Generals, instead of a meeting of two of the West's better teams. With Andre Roberson down and out, Waiters should continue to get plenty of starts and run from here on out. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:53 pm
  • Will Barton doesn't play in the fourth
    Will Barton did not play in the fourth quarter against the 76ers on Wednesday, finishing with six points, five rebounds, one block and one turnover in 22 minutes.

    Advice: He wasn't the worst player on the team tonight and coach Melvin Hunt likely just went with some other guys down the stretch. It didn't work with the 76ers winning the fourth quarter 27-9, so at least Barton has that going for him. He should get some extra minutes with the Nuggets having a back-to-back set this weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:32 pm
  • Lord Robert Covington scores 25 points vs. DEN
    Robert Covington stayed hot against the Nuggets during a 99-85 win on Wednesday, matching his career high of 25 points with six rebounds, two steals, one block and six 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's getting hot at the right time for his fantasy owners with a 21-point game coming on Tuesday. Covington moved back to the bench, but he was still able to get 17 shots from the field and three from the line. He is a must-start player when he's on track like he is now. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:16 pm
  • Trevor Ariza scores 22 in great line vs. NO
    Trevor Ariza was fantastic against the Pelicans during a 95-93 win on Wednesday, making 9-of-13 from the field for 22 points with nine rebounds, five assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: That's his fourth game in his last five tries with at least four dimes and he's really stepped up as more than just a catch-and-shoot guy. In that span, Ariza averaged 15.0 points, 8.6 boards, 4.0 dimes, 1.8 steals and 2.4 treys on 55.8 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line. He's getting hot for his fantasy owners at the right time. James Harden was no slouch with 25 points, six rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:48 pm
  • Courtney Lee scoreless in start
    Courtney Lee started after missing time with a hand injury, but missed all three of his shots and didn't score.

    Advice: Tony Allen has been hot for the Grizzlies and had seven points, eight rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer, despite hitting just 3-of-11 shots. Forget about Lee unless you see him get hot. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:16 pm
  • Tyreke Evans scores 28 points in return
    Tyreke Evans made 10-of-16 from the field against the Rockets on Wednesday with 28 points, two rebounds, seven assists, one block, two steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: It's his most efficient game of the season and it comes on the heels of missing a game on Sunday. Evans should be fine going forward, but his troublesome left ankle will always be something to watch. He'll be a must-start option against the Kings on Friday. Revenge game? Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Beasley plays 14 minutes in win
    Michael Beasley came off the bench and played just 14 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with six points, two steals and a block.

    Advice: Yuck. Henry Walker, James Ennis and Tyler Johnson got the minutes tonight, so it looks like the bright light that was shining on Beasley earlier in the day is officially burnt out. Rotoworld.com

  • Henry Walker starts, hits four 3-pointers
    Henry Walker started for Dwyane Wade (knee) and hit 4-of-8 3-pointers for 12 points, four boards and two assists in Wednesday's win.

    Advice: James Ennis had six points and six rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench, and Tyler Johnson added 12 points, four rebounds, two steals and a block in 20 minutes. Wade is day-to-day with his injury, and we expect this trio to continue to chip in as long as he's out. Unfortunately, none of them can be trusted in fantasy, even when Wade is out. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee will start, Jeff Green off bench
    Courtney Lee (hand) will start against the Cavs on Wednesday with Jeff Green going back to the bench.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise with the Grizzlies saying they like Green as a primary scoring option off the bench. Lee has lost a lot of fantasy value since Green arrived and can be left on the wire in standard formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin is 'available to play' vs. LA
    Kevin Martin (hamstring) is available to play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Earlier reports say the injury situation is the same with the Wolves, so there's still a very good chance we don't see Martin out there tonight. Expect to see more Chase Budinger on the wing tonight with Justin Hamilton back. Lorenzo Brown should also get some minutes again tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Henry Walker starting, Beasley off bench
    Henry Walker will start against the Celtics on Wednesday with Michael Beasley coming off the bench.

    Advice: The Heat desperately need some scoring punch off the bench, so expect to see a lot of Beasley. He's also likely going to be a backup center fort Miami tonight. Walker is still a low-end option with Beasley offering the higher upside. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:15 pm
  • Michael Beasley will start on Wednesday
    Michael Beasley will enter the starting lineup on Wednesday vs. the Celtics in place of Hassan Whiteside (hand).

    Advice: The Heat are also missing Dwyane Wade (knee) and Chris Andersen (calf) tonight, so Beasley should be very busy on the offensive end. He is averaging 9.0 points, 4.4 boards and 1.3 assists in 24.3 minutes through 12 games in March, but he should see a nice bump in production in a critical matchup with the Celtics. Owners in daily leagues should give him a look. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin (hamstring) still questionable
    Kevin Martin (hamstring) is still questionable to play vs. the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Wolves are going to be extremely shorthanded again tonight, so they could use all the help they could get. If Martin can't play, Andrew Wiggins, Chase Budinger, Lorenzo Brown and Sean Kilpatrick should all get plenty of minutes on the wings, with Wiggins and Budinger offering the most upside. We still don't think Martin plays because the Wolves have no incentive to play him at less than 100 percent and they are currently playing for ping pong balls, so his owners should have a backup plan ready.

  • Tyreke Evans (ankle) still expected to play
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) is still expected to play against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: This is essentially a non-update for Evans and he should be ready to roll after missing Sunday's game against the Clippers. He can be inserted back into fantasy lineups. Expect to see less Norris Cole tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (hand) expects to play Wednesday
    Courtney Lee (hand) is expected to play against the Cavs on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He's been out since Saturday due to a hand sprain, which has been a lingering issue for him in the past couple weeks. With Lee back, Tony Allen and Jeff Green will lose some playing time. Green may also come off the bench, but he's still worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:29 pm
  • Jared Dudley is questionable for Thursday
    Jared Dudley (knee) is questionable to play against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: He did go through practice, but that doesn't mean much because he went through practice on Monday and missed Tuesday's game. Dudley can remain on the wire in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:06 pm
  • Michael Beasley likely to start on Wednesday
    Michael Beasley will likely enter the starting lineup vs. the Celtics on Wednesday if Hassan Whiteside (hand) can't play.

    Advice: Beasley has averages of 9.0 points, 4.4 boards and 1.3 assists in 24.3 minutes per game during the month of March, so he could see a nice bump in production if he is forced to play big minutes. Chris Andersen (calf) is also questionable which only improves Beasley's outlook, so owners in daily leagues looking for a cheap plug-and-play should give him a look. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (hand) questionable Wednesday
    Courtney Lee (hand) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Lee has missed two consecutive games, but we haven't heard a lot about his progress in the last few days. If Lee can't play tonight, Tony Allen will draw another start and is worth owning if you need steals while Jeff Green will continue to be a factor in the scoring column for the Grizzlies. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:31 am
  • Tyreke Evans, Omer Asik expect to play Wed
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) and Omer Asik (calf) are both expected to play vs. the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: Evans was held out of Sunday's game vs. the Clippers, but he has been able to rest for a few days now, and he should be ready to resume his normal allotment of minutes tonight. With the Pelicans in the hunt for a playoff spot, Evans will likely continue to play through minor injuries for the foreseeable future. Go ahead and pencil him into all active lineups, and expect Norris Cole to return to the bench and lose most of his value. Rotoworld.com

  • Will Barton would like to remain a Nugget
    Will Barton is hoping to stick around with the Nuggets beyond this season.

    Advice: "No doubt," Barton said. "I think we can build something here. We have a lot of good talent, a good organization, coaching staff is good. I can see us building and having a strong future here. We can grow together." The Nuggets can extend Barton a qualifying offer in the summer that estimates to be around $1.1 million, and if he accepts it would make him a restricted free agent. Barton has played well in Denver and is averaging 10.2 points, 4.6 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.0 3-pointer in just over 26 minutes per game over his last five, making him a viable asset in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 7:23 am
  • Robert Covington drops 21 points, five 3PTs
    Robert Covington dropped 21 points in place of Jason Richardson (rest) on Tuesday vs. the Kings, adding three boards, one assist, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Covington has been phenomenal this season when he is given the minutes, but head coach Brett Brown has continued to give precious minutes away to veterans such as Jason Richardson and Luc Mbah a Moute. Covington is averaging just 9.4 points, 3.8 boards, 1.8 assists and 2.2 3-pointers in just over 25 minutes per game over his last five, so unless you need 3-pointers, it's tough to call him a must-own player. Expect Covington's value to take a hit when Richardson returns to the starting lineup on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:56 pm
  • Dion Waiters stays hot w/ 23 points vs Lakers
    Dion Waiters was benched to start the second half of Tuesday's game, but he got hot offensively and finished with 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists and only one turnover in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Anthony Morrow took Waiters' spot with the starters and remains the more valuable fantasy option, regardless of where he begins Wednesday's game in San Antonio. Waiters has been hot offensively over his past few games, however, and is worth plugging into lineup until he cools off. OKC is starting to gain some breathing room as the No. 8 seed in the West, pulling two games ahead of the idle Suns with tonight's 127-117 home win. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:31 pm
  • Michael Beasley starts w/ Whiteside ailing
    With Hassan Whiteside (hand) being stitched up by team trainers, Michael Beasley slid into Miami's starting lineup to begin the second half on Tuesday.

    Advice: Beasley finished with four points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes, but he also lost a critical jumpball which led to Milwaukee's game-winning 3-pointer. He's solidified himself as a reliable part of Miami's rotation but he's yet to cause a ripple in fantasy leagues. Whiteside's status for Wednesday's game is in real doubt, but Beasley is best suited to use in very deep leagues or daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley (knee) out Tuesday vs. Miami
    Jared Dudley (knee) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Dudley is inching his way closer to making a return after going through a full practice on Monday, but today will not be the day. He wasn't playing well before going down, and he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 3:29 pm
  • Bennett (ankle), Hummel (hand) out Wednesday
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) and Robbie Hummel (hand) will not play Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Both players remain without a firm timetable to return, and belong on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:41 pm
  • Kevin Martin (hamstring) questionable for Wed
    Kevin Martin (hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Martin did not play during the Wolves last game due to his ailing hamstring, and with the Timberwolves playing for picks, there's no reason for Martin to play at less than 100 percent. We'll be monitoring his status closely, and if he's unavailable, Lorenzo Brown would have another opportunity to start, with Chase Budinger and Sean Kilpatrick seeing extended minutes in the backcourt. Budinger offers the most upside out of the group. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer (oblique) probable Wednesday
    Corey Brewer (oblique strain) is probable to play Wednesday vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: This is the first we're hearing of an oblique injury for Brewer, but with the Rockets listing him as probable, we're not expecting him to miss any time. Brewer has been productive through the month of March, putting in averages of 13.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 0.9 three-pointers per game on 48.1 percent shooting from the field. He's a good guy to own in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyreke Evans (ankle) questionable Wednesday
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: If Evans is again unable to go on Wednesday, Norris Cole would have another opportunity to run with the starting unit, while Eric Gordon and Anthony Davis would be asked to step it up on the offensive end. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    Robert Covington will replace Jason Richardson (rest) in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Kings.

  • Tony Allen hoping for All-Defensive team
    Tony Allen said he wants to make the All-Defensive first time this year.

    Advice: "I’m sticking your elite two-guards in the league," Allen sayid. "Not even just two guards: I check the Durants, the Joe Johnsons, the Lebrons—the best player every night. They robbed me last yea. The only reason they didn’t put me in there is because I missed a lot of games, but this year I’m for sure first team." Allen has been on a tear as of late in averaging 11.0 points, 7.8 rebounds, and 2.8 steals over his last five games and needs to be owned in all standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Trevor Ariza scores four with 11 boards
    Trevor Ariza made 1-of-2 from the field for four points with 11 rebounds, one assist and two steals in 32 minutes against the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: It was a big surprise to see him not take many shots with his improved shooting lately, making 50.0 percent from the field in his last five. Ariza will likely get it going again soon and should be a mid-round player in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 23, 8:08 pm
  • Allen productive in 27 minutes on Monday
    Tony Allen scored nine points on 4-of-5 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in Monday's win over the Knicks.

    Advice: Allen has been a top-75 player over the last month and it's well past time he's owned in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Bogdanovic scores six points with six boards
    Bojan Bogdanovic scored just six points on 3-of-14 shooting with six rebounds and one assist in 26 minutes off the bench on Monday.

    Advice: Bogdanovic had been a nice little run but this shows how shaky his value can be. He's a deep league play at best until he shows us a little bit more. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Miles makes 3-of-16 from the field
    C.J. Miles made 3-of-16 from the field against the Rockets on Monday for six points with two rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He missed all eight shots from deep. Miles is the ultimate boom-or-bust player and he's one of the best bets if you had to guess a player was going to shoot below 25 percent from the game. Of course, he could drop 25 his next time out. He is what he is. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin bothered by hamstring injury
    Kevin Martin has been bothered by a hamstring injury and did not play on Monday against the Jazz.

    Advice: Martin is now officially a risk unless we hear from the team that he's ready to play significant minutes. Be careful on a drop because he can fill it up, but we're watching him closely for signs that he's going to shut it down. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (hand) out again on Monday
    Courtney Lee (hand) will not play against the Knicks on Monday.

    Advice: The Grizzlies should be OK without him. On Saturday, Jeff Green and Tony Allen played outstanding ball with Green putting up a 23-point gem and Allen double-doubling with six steals. They're both worth looks in all leagues tonight. Lee can be cut in most leagues until he's deemed healthy. Rotoworld.com

  • Hollins continues praise for Bojan Bogdanovic
    Coach Lionel Hollins said he hasn't been playing Deron Williams and Jarrett Jack together because of how well Bojan Bogdanovic is playing right now.

    Advice: He had some kind of run last week, averaging 17.8 points, 3.5 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 2.0 treys on 63.8 percent from the field in 35.0 minutes per game in his last four. There is a 49-minute outlier in there, so we're expecting Bojan to get minutes in the 28-33 range this week. He has four games, so feel free to give him a look if you're feeling saucy and want to roll the dice on a rookie. Additionally, Jack and Williams are both likely to play minutes in the mid 20s.

  • Trevor Ariza, Pat Beverley will play on Mon
    Trevor Ariza (illness) and Patrick Beverley (elbow) will play against the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: He was questionable with an illness, but there was little doubt he would play after looking great on Saturday despite being listed for that game, as well. Ariza is a must-start player this week in all formats. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 23, 2:54 pm
  • Jared Dudley questionable for Tuesday
    Jared Dudley (knee) is questionable to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: He went through practice on Monday and could return after missing most of the second half due to an issue with his kneecap. Dudley would take minutes away from Ersan Ilyasova, but Ghosface Ilya is still worth owning in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Bennett's injury now to his leg
    Anthony Bennett (leg) will not play on Monday against the Jazz, and he remains out indefinitely.

    Advice: This is just a reminder, and Bennett doesn't appear close to any kind of return. He's been out since February 20. Rotoworld.com

  • Trevor Ariza (illness) questionable on Monday
    Trevor Ariza (illness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Ariza was questionable coming into Saturday's game against the Suns with an illness, but he went off for 15 points, 12 boards, five assists, two steals and three triples. However, the fact he's still sick a couple days later is not a great sign, and the Rockets are extremely banged up in the frontcourt at the wrong time. If Ariza can't go, rookie K.J. McDaniels could get the call. Rotoworld.com

  • 76ers burying Robert Covington in bench role
    Robert Covington played 25 minutes off the bench vs. the Lakers, finishing with 11 points (3-of-9 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs), two 3-pointers, three rebounds and one block.

    Advice: The Sixers were within one point after the third quarter, yet only one player for either team (Nerlens Noel) reached the 30-minute threshold. That's what happens when two cellar-dwelling teams face off with nothing but lottery balls at stake, and it's hard to envision Covington regaining the mojo he had midseason. Owners in need of instant production can't be faulted for having cut him loose. Rotoworld.com

  • Chandler Parsons scores 19 points on Sunday
    Chandler Parsons played well in Sunday's loss to the Suns, scoring 19 points with four boards, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Parsons is playing well and is averaging 18.4 points, 4.4 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals and a solid 2.6 3-pointers per game over his last five. Despite the Mavericks poor playoff schedule, Parsons is still worth starting in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin hands out career-high nine dimes
    Kevin Martin handed out a career-high nine assists during Sunday's loss to Charlotte, while scoring 15 points on 7-of-19 field goals.

    Advice: KevMart didn't make any 3-pointers and he only attempted one free throw all game, but he made up for it with four boards, one steal and the sudden outburst of assists. He had zero assists in his previous two games and is a dubious source of dimes even if Ricky Rubio's ankle injury costs him a few more games. Owners rely on Martin for points and 3-pointers, so consider tonight's game an added bonus. Rotoworld.com

  • Will Barton chips in across the board Sunday
    Will Barton had 11 points, five rebounds, three assists and two steals off the bench vs. Orlando on Sunday.

    Advice: Randy Foye was out with a stomach illness, setting up Barton for a solid game but instead he played only 25 minutes, much of which came during garbage time. He has had a few offensive explosions since the All-Star break and does just enough to hold steady late-round value in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Henry Walker shoots 0-of-6 in blowout loss
    Heat F Henry Walker missed all six of his shot attempts vs. the Thunder, finishing scoreless with four rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: More than three-quarters of Walker's shots come from beyond the arc, which makes him especially prone to boom-or-bust games offensively. He's foul-prone and has scored 10+ points just once in the month of March, so there's no reason to own him despite his steady minutes in Erik Spoelstra's second unit. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 22, 3:02 pm
  • Jared Dudley (knee) and Mayo (hamstring) out
    Jared Dudley (knee) and O.J. Mayo (hamstring) remain out indefinitely.

    Advice: Neither guy will play on Sunday, of course, and their absence leaves extra playing time available for Tyler Ennis, Jerryd Bayless, Ersan Ilyasova and others. Ilyasova is the best bet for reliable value, though Bayless is also worth a glance for deep-league owners seeking guard help. Dudley and Mayo both belong on the waiver wire until a return date is announced. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyreke Evans (ankle) will not play Sunday
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.

  • Tyreke Evans, Omer Asik questionable Sunday
    Tyreke Evans (left ankle sprain) and Omer Asik (calf) are questionable to play vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

    Advice: Evans injured his calf on Friday and wasn't able to return, so his owners might view it as a good thing that the Pelicans cited his previously sprained ankle for the reason as to why he is questionable. Evans will likely be a game-time decision tonight, so his owners will have no choice but to to check back later for the official word on his status. If Evans can't play, Norris Cole would likely start and would be worth a look in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Trevor Ariza scores 15 with 12 boards
    Trevor Ariza looked healthy against the Suns on Saturday with 15 points, 12 boards, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: It's obvious he'll be involved more in the offense now. Ariza is usually off the ball, but he's having one of his best runs with assists right now. He has a great chance to be a top-40 player this week and maybe even top 20 if he gets hot from deep. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Green scores 23 points with nine boards
    Jeff Green was terrific in the starting lineup against the Blazers on Saturday with 23 points, nine rebounds and five 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: He and Tony Allen picked up most of Courtney Lee's (hand) minutes. Green is going to move back to the bench once Lee gets healthy, but he still looked good on Friday with 15 points. Unless you were already eyeing him, Green isn't a great pickup in shallow leagues. He's worth a look if you need scoring, though. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen double-doubles with six steals
    Tony Allen double-doubled with 10 points, 11 rebounds, one assist, six steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: He started tonight with Courtney Lee out of the lineup due to a nagging thumb injury. The more time Lee misses, the bigger the lines will be for Allen. If you need some steals, he's almost a must-own player. Rotoworld.com

  • Arron Afflalo scores eight points
    Arron Afflalo scored eight points on 3-of-6 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line with three rebounds, one assist and three fouls.

    Advice: Even with all the injuries, Afflalo still can't produce. He somehow only put up a 9.8 usage rate tonight, which makes his position of shooting guard a complete misnomer. His ceiling will be raised with all of these injuries, but there's no need to be proactive in adding him right now based on how poorly he's played. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Miles scores 14 points vs. Nets
    C.J. Miles made 5-of-11 from the field for 14 points with six boards and four 3-pointers during a 123-111 loss to the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He scored his first 12 points on 150.0 effective field goal percentage, but fizzled out making just 1-of-7 the rest of the way. Miles could be in line for more minutes, but Rodney Stuckey's calf injury sounds minor. Paul George (leg) could also return soon and take minutes from him. If he's on the wire, there's no need to be too aggressive in grabbing him. Rotoworld.com

  • Bojan Bogdanovic scores 21, makes all 8 FGAs
    Bojan Bogdanovic stayed hot against the Pacers on Saturday, making all eight attempts from the field for 21 points with five rebounds and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

    Advice: He played a whopping 49 minutes on Friday and scored 17 points in a win. Bogdanovic has played at least 27 minutes in four straight games, averaging 17.8 points, 3.8 boards, 0.5 blocks and 2.0 treys. It's becoming clearer that coach Lionel Hollins is going to play him more, so he's worth a look in standard leagues while he's hot. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (hand) will not play Saturday
    Courtney Lee (hand) will not play against the Blazers on Saturday due to a right hand sprain.

    Advice: That means the Grizzlies will have their third different combo on the wings with Tony Allen and Jeff Green likely to start next to each other. Lee isn't too involved in the offense and only has a 15.1 usage rate, so there won't be too many extra shots to go around. That said, Green and Allen are worth starting in standard leagues tonight.

  • Anthony Bennett (ankle) now out
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) will not play on Sunday against the Hornets.

    Advice: There was some hope he could play, but he'll miss another game. Bennett could get minutes due to how thin the Wolves are, but he can remain on the wire in fantasy leagues until we get a confirmation he'll be ready to go for game action. Plus, he hasn't practiced yet. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 3:35 pm
  • Trevor Ariza (illness) will play on Saturday
    Trevor Ariza (illness) will play against the Suns on Saturday.

    Advice: He's the only player on the Rockets to start every game for them this season. Ariza is usually a catch-and-shoot guy, but he may be asked to do more on offense with the Rockets missing Terrence Jones (chest). Start Ariza in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 3:32 pm
  • Trevor Ariza expects to play on Saturday
    Trevor Ariza (illness) is expected to play against the Suns on Saturday.

    Advice: He missed shootaround, but it doesn't sound like he's going to miss his first game of the season. With Terrence Jones (chest) out indefinitely, Ariza should have more offensive responsibility. He's worth starting in daily leagues tonight in what should be an up-tempo game. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 2:57 pm
  • Robbie Hummel could play this season
    Robbie Hummel (hand) could return at some point this season.

    Advice: The team is going to wait for him to fully heal, but they need forwards right now. Hummel can be left on the wire in all leagues until he practices. Additionally, the Wolves updating Hummel and Anthony Bennett is either really good or bad on the status of Justin Hamilton (illness). Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 12:14 pm
  • Anthony Bennett has chance to play Sunday
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) is questionable to play on Sunday against the Hornets.

    Advice: He has been out for over one month with his leg injury and there's been little talk of him making progress. The Wolves need big men as bad as any team right now, so Bennett would get minutes if he's healthy. Adreian Payne and Chase Budinger would lose some playing time. Leave Bennett on the wire until we get a more encouraging update. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 12:11 pm
  • Jeff Green asked for his new bench role
    Jeff Green asked head coach Dave Joerger if he could come off the bench prior to Friday's game vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: The move certainly paid off for Green and he was really active with the second unit, scoring 15 points with three boards, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes. "The flow was there," Green said after their win over the Mavericks. "I’m going to end up playing with those guys in the starting unit anyway. But it’s good for myself because now I can be more aggressive. I don’t have to worry about getting Marc [Gasol] and Zach [Randolph] involved. By the time I get in they’ve already been involved. It’s on me to just go in be aggressive and try to score." Green will likely continue coming off the bench for the foreseeable future, and it looks like his value could actually be on the rise.

  • Trevor Ariza (illness) questionable Saturday
    Trevor Ariza (illness) missed shootaround and is considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Ariza has been on fire recently and has scored 17 or more points in each of his last three games, so it will be a huge blow for his owners if he is unable to give it a go. We should know more prior to tip-off, so his owners will want to be on alert for an update. If Ariza is unable to play, Corey Brewer would be in line for some extra minutes and would be worth a long look in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyreke Evans leaves game with calf injury
    Tyreke Evans left Friday's game midway through the third quarter due to a calf injury and did not return, finishing with two points on 1-of-4 shooting, five rebounds and four assists in 15 minutes.

    Advice: Evans was questionable for tonight's game due to an ankle injury so needless to say he's banged up. Norris Cole (16 points, five rebounds, four assists, two threes, 37 minutes) has had some standalone low-end appeal in 12-14 team leagues, but any time off for Evans would obviously boost him into easy late-round value with some upside beyond that. The Pelicans are in the thick of the playoff chase, so guys will push to play. Rotoworld.com

  • Waiters scores season-high 26 points vs. ATL
    Dion Waiters scored a season-high 26 points on Friday against the Hawks, hitting 11-of-18 shots (including two threes) with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 37 minutes.

    Advice: If Waiters is going to get this much playing time then he might be worth a look, but chances are that Enes Kanter will return to steal some touches and cap off any theoretic upside that Waiters might have. It was easily his best game of the year but we're just not convinced he can get it done in a standard league. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 20, 11:17 pm
  • Tony Allen plays 32 minutes in start
    Tony Allen started on Friday against the Mavs with 13 points, seven rebounds, one assist and two steals on 5-of-8 from the field and 3-of-8 from the line in 32 minutes.

    Advice: This is right up his alley for playing time and usage rate, so Allen will continue to be more of a steals guy with some boards and points mixed in. He's worth a look depending on your needs. Keep an eye on his status for the back-to-back set on Saturday, but there's little doubt the Grindfather will sit in the Grindhouse. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Green looks good as the sixth man
    Jeff Green came off the bench against the Mavs on Friday with 15 points, three rebounds, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: It was a good game for him and he'll be able to do more on offense if he's getting more run with the second unit. This is another reminder that starting doesn't necessarily mean more fantasy value. Green will continue to be a low-end player to own going forward, but keep an eye on him to see if he plays well again on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 20, 10:43 pm
  • Beasley flirts with triple-double vs. Nuggets
    Michael Beasley flirted with a low-grade triple-double on Friday against the Nuggets, scoring nine points on 4-of-13 shooting (including a three) with eight rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block in 34 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Beasley hasn't been a great standard league asset because of poor percentages and just 1.8 combined steals, threes and blocks over his last seven games. There is a chance he mops up for the Heat down the stretch of the season, but with the Heat rising in the standings and not falling -- that chance lessens by the game. Rotoworld.com

  • Barton quiet but still versatile on Friday
    Will Barton scored seven points on 2-of-5 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in 17 minutes off the bench on Friday.

    Advice: If Barton can rack up the money stats like this on bad nights he'll be set, and he's still pushing top-70 value this past week despite two low-minute outings in a row. He'll probably need some injuries ahead of him to feel good about his role, but consistency isn't an issue as he has been a top 90-100 player for 16 games now. Rotoworld.com

  • Bojan Bogdanovic plays 49 minutes
    Bojan Bogdanovic played 49 minutes against the Bucks on Friday during a triple-overtime win with 17 points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He hit a couple clutch shots and his coach clearly has confidence in him. Bogdanovic played 36 minutes on Wednesday and he's also taken 39 shots combined in his last three. He's still not a must-own player because of how many slumps he's had, but he's definitely on the radar now. He's probably a grab in 16-team leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Covington scores eight points with two threes
    Robert Covington scored eight points off the bench on Friday, hitting 3-of-7 shots (including two threes) with five rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Covington is sliding at the wrong time for owners and it's really anybody's guess if he's going to get back on track. There's not a huge body of work for owners to look back at for comfort, and Brett Brown is known to make changes on the fly. We haven't heard anything about his elbow injury, and it's best if owners view him more as a stash than somebody to rely on. Rotoworld.com

  • Arron Afflalo has a bad night in Orlando
    Arron Afflalo didn't play well against one of his former teams in Orlando on Friday with seven points, three rebounds and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

    Advice: It hasn't gone well for him. Afflalo doesn't have a single steal in any of his last five games, averaging 13.2 points, 2.6 boards, 0.2 blocks and 2.6 treys on 42.6 percent from the field in that span. He's losing some playing time now and it's really hard to hold a guy who has yet to make a splash since joining the team. If there's something promising on the wire, cutting Afflalo makes sense. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 20, 6:46 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play on Friday
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play against the Warriors on Friday night.

    Advice: At least the Pelicans will have 40 percent of their starting lineup tonight. Evans has dealt with a ton of ankle injuries and he's still a risky play because of the Warriors defense and the garbage time factor. He should still have enough chances to put up numbers, though. Norris Cole isn't as appealing tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen will start for Jeff Green
    Tony Allen will start for Jeff Green on Friday against the Mavericks.

    Advice: It's not really a big move because Allen comes in for Green fairly early in the first quarter anyway. There's really no need to adjust minutes projections or output from this move. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley (back) will not play on Friday
    Jared Dudley (back spasms) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Brooklyn, and he is currently without an official timetable to return.

    Advice: With Dudley out, Ersan Ilyasova will likely continue to see his minutes in the 30s, with Giannis Antetokounmpo getting all the run he can handle. Dudley belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 20, 8:26 am
  • Nick Young (knee) unlikely to make road trip
    Lakers' head coach Byron Scott said he's doubtful Nick Young (knee) will accompany the team on their upcoming five-game road trip.

    Advice: "I don’t see him going on this trip," Scott said. "He can do his therapy here." It sounds like Young will remain sidelined for at least the next six games, meaning he won't be able to return to action until April 1 at the earliest. Jordan Clarkson, Jeremy Lin, and Wayne Ellington will continue to log extended minutes in Young's absence, and at this point in the fantasy season, Swaggy P belongs on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Will Barton slows down on Thursday
    Will Barton scored just three points with five rebounds, one steal and two turnovers on 1-of-6 from the field in 19 minutes against the Rockets on Thursday.

    Advice: That's two really bad games in a row following his 1-of-5 from the field on Monday. Barton had a 25-point game on Sunday and his value is going to be a roller coaster going forward. The Nuggets are on the second half of a road-road back-to-back on Friday, so maybe the front offices rests guys again like they did on Monday. He's not a must-own player, but there is some reward to go with the risk, obviously. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer grabs 10 boards vs. Nuggets
    Corey Brewer grabbed 10 rebounds during a 118-108 win over the Nuggets on Thursday with six points, four rebounds, one steal and one turnover on 3-of-9 from the field.

    Advice: He has suddenly become a rebounding guard and pulled down a career-high 12 boards on Tuesday. Brewer's treys are down and he's slowed down in his last three outings, averaging 8.7 points, 8.3 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks on 37.9 percent from the field. He's more of a steals specialist as long as you're OK with his sub-par shooting. Rotoworld.com

  • Bennet (ankle), Hummel (hand) out Thursday
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) and Robbie Hummel (hand) have been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: The Timberwolves will enter Thursday's game with just eight healthy bodies on the roster. Bennett hasn't played since Feb. 20, and remains without an official timetable to return. Hummel has been out since Jan. 25, and he too has no clear return date. Zach LaVine, Kevin Martin, Andrew Wiggins, Gorgui Dieng, and Adreian Payne will be forced into heavy minutes tonight in a game that both teams would prefer to lose. Get ready for some very ugly basketball. Rotoworld.com

  • Carlisle says Chandler Parsons wasn't benched
    Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said Chandler Parsons was substituted and not benched during the fourth quarter of Wednesday's win over the Magic.

    Advice: "I didn't bench him," Carlisle said in regards to subbing in Al-Farouq Aminu for Parsons. "I just substituted for him. I just wanted a quicker guy in there. With Aminu, you get some more options. Parsons didn't have a great night, but it happens." Potatoe, Potahto. Parsons had just been burned on a baseline dunk by Maurice Harkless, so there was an obvious cause and effect here. Benching aside, Parsons is still a big part of the Mavs and should be started in all fantasy leagues as long as he's healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 19, 7:02 am
  • Chandler Parsons disappears in win
    Chandler Parsons hit just 3-of-8 shots for eight points, four rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: Parsons went off for 31 points on 10-of-14 shooting, but couldn't get it going tonight. He's been a bit hit-or-miss all season, but is healthy again, and should be better than this on most nights. Rotoworld.com
