  • Big Papa has a big game
    Kostas Papanikolaou had another nice game against the Mavericks on Saturday with eight points, seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: The minutes jump off the page here and Papathreekolaou attempted six shots from deep. He figures to be a part of the solution at power forward, so fantasy owners can certainly look to grab him to help in deeper leagues. He's the biggest winner from the Dwight Howard (knee) injury.

  • Austin Rivers scores eight points
    Austin Rivers played 33 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday with eight points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: Eric Gordon went down and Rivers is going to get minutes. He's been one of the most inefficient players in the NBA lately, but the opportunity is there. Feel free to give him a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Belinelli plays 10 minutes
    Marco Belinelli played 10 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: He did not score and had just three rebounds, three assists and one steal. Belinelli is not 100 percent and the Spurs might have started him just to mix it up. He's not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:52 pm
  • Sergey Karasev returned to action on Saturday November 22. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:51 pm
  • Bojan Bogdanovic scores just two points
    Bojan Boganovic missed all seven shots from the field for two points with two rebounds, one assists and no turnovers.

    Advice: He is awful on the road and it's so bad that his owners in deeper leagues should just sit him down. Bogdanovic is still worth owning in some formats, though. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:45 pm
  • Kris Humphries goes for 12 and nine
    Kris Humphries scored 12 points against the Bucks during a 111-100 win on Saturday to go with nine rebounds, one assist and one block.

    Advice: Nene (foot) went down tonight and there is a very good chance he will miss time. Humphries has some upside to be a double-double guy with some defensive stats, so he's a speculative add in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:41 pm
  • Shane Larkin doesn't play on Saturday
    Shane Larkin was a DNP-CD on Saturday.

    Advice: He won't be a DNP-CD every game, but it's going to happen. Larkin can be cut in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • K.J. McDaniels has a so-so game
    K.J. McDaniels played 20 minutes against the Knicks during a 91-83 loss on Saturday, scoring eight points with one steal, two 3-pointers and two turnovers.

    Advice: He committed three fouls and it's obvious he's trying to be a hero out there with his minutes. McDaniels is arguably the most talented perimeter player on the 76ers, but his coach won't play him right now. He's a solid stash candidate, but his owners shouldn't consider him a must-own guy at all. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Robert Covington turns in 100.0 eFG%
    Robert Covington turned in a 100.0 effective field goal percentage against the Knicks on Saturday, making 4-of-6 from the field for 14 points with four rebounds and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's leading the team in plus-minus and the 76ers are just a better team when he's out there. His minutes should be on the rise, so owners in deeper leagues might want to be a couple steps ahead of the curve and make a move. Covington does offer nice upside, as well. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Alexey Shved does his usual thing
    Alexey Shved made 1-of-7 from the field in eight minutes of action against the Knicks on Saturday.

    Advice: He did not see the court in the second half and coach Brett Brown may have had an epiphany with Shved. He was their backup point guard, but that should probably change soon. Shved has no fantasy value and the fact that he's getting minutes is exhibit A for the tank conspiracy theorists out there. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Jason Thompson quiet in 18 minutes vs. Wolves
    Jason Thompson logged just under 18 minutes in Saturday's win in Minnesota, finishing with a quiet four points, three rebounds and one assist.

    Advice: JT's playing time occasionally slips below 20 minutes, only to rally again into the mid-20s. It's not very relevant for fantasy owners, however, as he's cracked double-digit scoring and rebounding just once all season (in separate games) and is nowhere near reliable value. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:08 pm
  • Solomon Hill gets big minutes again
    Solomon Hill played 35 minutes against the Suns on Saturday with 13 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: With Rodney Stuckey (wrist) going down yet again, the Pacers are going to need more minutes out of Hill. He was already worth owning in standard leagues for his across-the-board output after a horrible start, but now the injury to Stuckey might solidify his value a little more. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:52 pm
  • Marco Belinelli (groin) starts, Green benched
    Marco Belinelli (groin) will make a surprise start for the Spurs on Saturday, sending Danny Green to the bench.

    Advice: Belinelli wasn't even certain to play and this start comes out of nowhere, especially since Green has been playing very well lately and San Antonio doesn't have a healthy backup PG. This will likely be a one-game move from Gregg Popovich, so don't overreact to the unusual lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:41 pm
  • Marco Belinelli will play vs. Nets on Sat.
    Marco Belinelli (groin) will play against the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: He said he didn't have an aggravation on Friday and just stayed on the exercise bike to stay warm. Belinelli is unlikely to get more than minutes in the teens tonight, so he's not worth starting in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:33 pm
  • Cory Joseph (ankle) will not play vs. Nets
    Cory Joseph (ankle) will not play against the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Spurs are without a backup point guard, but Manu Ginobili should help out there. That should also open up some minutes on the wing for Danny Green and Austin Daye. Joseph's injury doesn't sound serious. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:56 pm
     
    Injured
  • Marco Belinelli (groin) game-time on Saturday
    Marco Belinelli (groin) is a game-time decision vs. the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Spurs have already ruled out a handful of players, including backup PG Cory Joseph, so it's at least encouraging that Belinelli will try to warm up. He doesn't have enough upside in his bench role to be worth a gamble in fantasy leagues even if he were at full health. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:55 pm
  • Marco Belinelli is questionable on Saturday
    Marco Belinelli (groin) is questionable to face the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: He only played 10 minutes in his return on Friday and the Spurs have never been shy about resting players in a back-to-back set, so Belinelli could sit. Danny Green has been on fire lately and should be considered as a must-start guy in standard leagues tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:38 am
  • Cory Joseph and Matt Bonner are doubtful
    Cory Joseph (ankle) and Matt Bonner (illness) are doubtful to face the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Spurs are going to be in a little bit of trouble tonight with no backup point guard. In previous instances, they have used Manu Ginobili as the primary ball handler in the second unit and that should be the case tonight. Austin Daye may also get some extra playing time. Rotoworld.com

  • Larkin, Prigioni to split backup PG role
    The Knicks' backup PG job will be a "nightly" toss-up between Shane Larkin and Pablo Prigioni, according to coach Derek Fisher.

    Advice: "There will be times when Pablo is the best fit. There will be times when Shane is the best fit," said Fisher. "And we will just do in that moment what we think is best for the group. They have both done some good things for us so I wouldn’t put any one of them out of the mix with Jose coming back." A timeshare for backup minutes is a recipe for fantasy irrelevance. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:45 am
  • Suns C job a true timeshare for Len, Plumlee
    The Suns plan to split minutes at center between starter Miles Plumlee and backup Alex Len, according to coach Jeff Hornacek.

    Advice: Plumlee and Len are expected to check out after five-to-six-minutes stints. "That's about their limit," Hornacek said. "Once they hit that, they start to tail down a little bit because we ask them to do a lot in terms of running the court for a big guy." This is bad news for fantasy owners of either player, though at the moment both guys are clinging to 12-team value in just 20-25 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:50 am
  • Bruno Caboclo impressive in NBA debut
    Bruno Caboclo had eight points, two 3-pointers, one rebound and one block in 12 minutes during his NBA debut on Friday.

    Advice: The Raptors' first-round draft pick entered in the third quarter to chants of "Bruno" from the home crowd, and fans quickly got their first glimpse of the 19-year-old Brazilian's talent. He may not have played if Toronto didn't have a commanding lead, however, and isn't worth picking up outside of dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:35 am
  • Bogdanovic held to three points on Friday
    Bojan Bogdanovic missed all five of his field goal attempts and finished with just three points over 24 minutes in Friday's win.

    Advice: Bogdan had crept into the 12-team standard league discussion but he's still too much of a secondary option in Brooklyn for our tastes. After he shakes off this game, he'll be on the bubble in 14-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:29 pm
  • Marco Belinelli plays 10 minutes
    Marco Belinelli returned to the lineup on Friday, playing 10 minutes with five points and two boards.

    Advice: He has been out for over two weeks and the Spurs will likely ease him back in the lineup considering he's dealt with groin issues before. Belinelli isn't going to have much in most leagues while the wings and guards are healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:43 pm
  • Alex Len has another down game vs. Philly
    Alex Len played just 19 minutes against the 76ers on Friday with four points, four boards and one steal.

    Advice: He has two sub-par games in a row since a breakout game on Monday. The Suns might not be ready to unleash Len just yet and perhaps they're a little worried about him getting hurt. We'll keep an eye on him, but his owners should be expecting much in the next month or so. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:57 pm
  • K.J. McDaniels scores career-high 17 points
    K.J. McDaniels scored a career-high 17 points against the Suns during an ugly 122-96 loss on Friday to go with three rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer on 5-of-12 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line in 28 minutes.

    Advice: His mom has yet to tweet about it as of the time this blurb was written. McDaniels has done quite a bit in the stat sheet with his 1.4 blocks and 1.1 triples in just 22.0 minutes on the season and he's likely going to get out there for more playing time. He's still more of a stash player right now. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:40 pm
  • Alexey Shved plays well against Suns
    Alexey Shved played 18 minutes off the bench against the Suns on Friday with 15 points, five rebounds, two steals and three 3-pointers on 6-of-9 from the field.

    Advice: If the Sixers are indeed going to stick with Tony Wroten in the starting lineup, Shved will be the backup point guard. He actually has one of the highest usage rates among players with less than 20 minutes, but he's obviously only worth owning in deep leagues. After all, he was a DNP-CD on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:27 pm
  • Joseph leaves game with ankle sprain
    Cory Joseph left Friday's game with a mild left ankle sprain and did not return.

    Advice: Joseph has played well in a backup role but as usual if he misses any time the rest of the rotation will absorb the minutes without a clear winner. He walked out of the arena under his own power and wasn't ready to rule himself out for Saturday's game. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:19 pm
     
    Injured
  • Nets looking to deal Karasev?
    The Nets could deal Sergey Karasev to the 76ers.

    Advice: He's not playing for the Nets and there's a decent chance he'll get playing time with the 76ers. Karasev is still not very talented, so he would only be a speculative add in a ridiculously deep league. The Nets are hoping to land a trade exception in the deal. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:22 pm
  • Marco Belinelli (groin) upgraded to probable
    Marco Belinelli (groin) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Belinelli is confined to a bench role, and is averaging just 8.3 points and 1.7 three-pointers on the year, so his value is limited to deep leagues. If he plays, Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green would see a slight reduction in minutes, but Belinelli won't have a large enough impact to hurt either of their values. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:19 am
  • Marco Belinelli (groin) questionable for Fri.
    Marco Belinelli (groin) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Belinelli is averaging just 8.3 points and 1.7 three-pointers this season, so his return to the court shouldn't matter for owners in standard leagues. Deep league owners will want to check back closer to Friday's tip for an official update on his status. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:16 pm
  • Jason Thompson (quad) probable for Thursday
    Jason Thompson (quad) is being listed as probable for Thursday's game vs. Chicago.

    Advice: Thompson is averaging just 4.3 points and 6.3 rebounds as a starter for the Kings, and he's faced with a very difficult matchup today against an imposing Chicago frontcourt. So whether he plays tonight should be of little concern to owners in standard leagues. However, if Thompson does sit this one out Carl Landry would be in line for some increased minutes, but given Sacramento's opponent, neither player makes for a very attractive option. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:18 pm
  • K.J. McDaniels frustrated by lack of PT
    K.J. McDaniels said he was frustrated that his minutes were limited while he was playing well on Wednesday.

    Advice: McDaniels didn't miss a shot during Wednesday's loss, scoring eight points (two 3-pointers) to go with two rebounds and a block, but coach Brett Brown limited him to just 11 minutes of action. Brown explained that the 76ers have a "logjam at the big wing position," which is an interesting statement considering McDaniels' competition goes by the names of Hollis Thompson, Luc Mbah a Moute, and Robert Covington. McDaniels is clearly the most talented player out of the group, but the 76ers organization is not interested in putting talented players on the floor if it gives the team a chance to win. Still, the Sixers are likely eventually going to give McDaniels minutes in order to give him a chance to develop, and he can be viewed as a stash candidate for owners in standard leagues.

    Thursday, 11:38 am
  • Maturing Solomon Hill helping the Pacers
    Pacers head coach pointed to Solomon Hll's growing maturity as a source of strength for the Pacers.

    Advice: Hill had a game-winning putback for the Pacers on Wednesday, but it's his maturity and leadership that is impressing his coach. "From the time we interviewed him before the draft, it was glaring that he was a very mature guy," Vogel said. "The way he carried himself was as impressive to us as anything he did on the basketball court, so to see him show a leadership role this early is not surprising to me." While Hill's fantasy value will take a hit when David West (ankle) returns, his recent play makes him worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 8:52 am
  • Kostas Papanikolaou scores 19 points
    Kostas Papanikolaou scored a career-high 19 points in a 98-92 loss to the Lakers on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: He was 4-of-7 from beyond the arc after missing his previous nine attempts in his last three games. Papanikolaou has picked up more playing time when the Rockets have missed out on Dwight Howard (knee) and that should continue if Dwight needs to miss more time. A Terrence Jones (leg) return would also really hurt Papanikolaou's value, so he's not a great pickup in standards. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:34 pm
  • Alex Len goes for 6 & 4 in win
    Alex Len came off the bench for six points, four rebounds and five fouls in 16 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: He came in playing very well and has his sights set on stealing Miles Plumlee's job, or at least stealing his minutes. He took a step backwards tonight, but likely would have been much better if he hadn't been hacking the opposition tonight. Keep an eye on this position battle. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:02 pm
  • Bojan Bogdanovic plays 47 minutes
    Bojan Bogdanovic played a career-high 47 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday with 19 points, seven rebounds and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He attempted 11 shots from beyond the arc and was 7-of-16 from the field overall. Bogdanovic is starting to figure the NBA game out and he's now turned in two good games in a row. He's still not doing much outside of scoring, so the upside isn't really there for owners in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:36 pm
  • Solomon Hill still gets his run, wins game
    Solomon Hill hit a game-winning putback against the Hornets on Wednesday during a 88-86 win, finishing with six points, five rebounds and three turnovers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: His minutes held tonight while Chris Copeland's dropped, so that means he's viewed as the team's leading small forward right now. Hill has come a long way from his awful preseason and he should have value at least until David West (ankle) gets back, which will hurt Hill's shot total. He's worth owning in standard leagues right now. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:12 pm
  • K.J. McDaniels quiet again in loss
    K.J. McDaniels played just 11 minutes on Wednesday, despite hitting 3-of-3 shots and both of his 3-point attempts, and finished with eight points, two rebounds and a block.

    Advice: He's blocking shots and playing pretty well, but just can't get minutes from his coach. We've been preaching patience with the rookie, but it has to be tough holding him in leagues where you need him to produce. He was seeing minutes in the mid-20s prior to low usage in two of his last three, so if you can continue to hold on, do it. But if you feel the need to drop him for someone reliable and producing right now, that option has to be considered. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:07 pm
  • Marco Belinelli (groin) still out on Wed.
    Marco Belinelli (groin) will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful and did not have much of a chance to play tonight. Beliinelli should be considered questionable to face the Wolves on Friday. Danny Green and Cory Joseph get some slight bumps in value tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:39 pm
  • Marco Belinelli (groin) is doubtful Wednesday
    Marco Belinelli (groin) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game.

    Advice: The Italian is only an asset in deeper leagues for his 3-pointers, so owners in standard leagues can continue to ignore him. If Belinelli can't go, Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard will continue to absorb his minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:05 am
  • Jason Thompson (quad) posts 15 & 9 Tuesday
    Jason Thompson (quad) had 15 points, nine rebounds and two turnovers in 25 minutes of action on Tuesday.

    Advice: He jumped out to a quick start and looked unimpeded by his recent quad injury, but as usual his fantasy contributions were restricted to points, FG percentage and rebounds. Fantasy owners in deeper formats would be better off looking for value in backup PF Carl Landry (eight points, nine boards, one steal in 16 minutes). Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:39 pm
  • Shane Larkin scoreless in 22 minutes vs. MIL
    Shane Larkin's streak of quiet games continued on Tuesday, as he went scoreless with zero rebounds and one assist in just 22 minutes.

    Advice: He has been starting at PG by default but Jose Calderon is nearing a return, and fantasy owners should cut Larkin in all formats. He's yet to score double-digit points in a game this season, largely because he's attempting only 5.9 shots in 27 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 7:42 pm
  • Jason Thompson (quad) will play Tuesday
    Jason Thompson (quad) will play in Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Advice: He is only averaging 3.2 points per game this season so this goes without saying that he shouldn't be considered in standard leagues. Even worse, Thompson will have to deal with Anthony Davis all night which makes him quite unappealing in daily leagues. You can safely ignore him in almost all formats. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:58 pm
  • Jason Thompson (quad) probable Tuesday vs. NO
    Jason Thompson (left quad tendinitis) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: Thompson is averaging just 3.2 points and 6.0 rebounds over 25 minutes of action this season, so he's obviously not worth a roster spot in standard leagues. It sounds like he'll suit up on Tuesday, but if he's unable to go, Carl Landry would likely pick up most of his minutes. Reggie Evans could also see some extended run off the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:36 pm
  • Alexey Shved plays on Monday night
    Alexey Shved returned to action on Monday with four points, one assist and one steal in 12 minutes.

    Advice: He is getting some run at point guard, which is important because that may dictate how the Sixers use Tony Wroten. Shved has no fantasy value, though. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 11:11 pm
  • Cory Joseph has a nice game on Monday night
    Cory Joseph scored 14 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the 76ers on Monday.

    Advice: He's scored in double-digits in three of his last four games with 1.3 steals and 3.0 dimes per game in that span. Obviously Joseph isn't going to light it up, but he's playing really well for owners in deep leagues. Plus, it's clear he'll be given plenty of chances should Tony Parker ever miss time. Rotoworld.com

  • Robert Covington makes his debut
    Robert Covington made his 76ers debut on Monday against the Spurs with six points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 17 minutes.

    Advice: He checked in during the second quarter and his minutes will likely be on the rise. Covington played both forward spots for the 76ers and that could continue. He's a player to grab in deep leagues and could emerge as a standard league asset. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:00 pm
  • Bojan scores 22 points with four treys
    Bojan Bogdanovic scored 22 points on 8-of-11 shooting (including four treys) with three rebounds and one steal over 41 minutes on Monday against the Heat.

    Advice: Bogdanovic has crept onto the standard league radar with averages of 30.5 minutes, 10.5 points, 1.5 threes and some friendly percentages to offset his lack of pop in other categories. 12-team owners in need of low-end production should give him a look. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:00 pm
  • Alex Len scores career high yet again on Mon.
    Alex Len had a career high in points for the second consecutive night, scoring 19 points with seven rebounds, one steal and three turnovers on 8-of-10 from the field in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Monday.

    Advice: He did have a couple bad plays and committed a bad foul on Rajon Rondo at the end of the game, but Len looks fantastic right now. He had an impressive 17-11 line against the Clippers on Saturday and it's pretty clear he's gunning for most of the minutes at center. He might not start, but getting 25-plus minutes will definitely make him worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:14 pm
  • Brown wants Covington to play defense
    Coach Brett Brown said Robert Covington promised him he would play defense.

    Advice: "He's a shooter," Brown said. "So the challenge will be to get him to guard." Covington was the first pick in the D-League draft and was third in the D-League for scoring in 2013-14. He doesn't take mid-range jumpers with only 8.3 percent of his shots last year coming from that distance while in the D-League. He might not start hot, but it wouldn't be a shock to see him emerge as the wing to own in Philly. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:14 pm
  • Kris Humphries coming on after hand injury
    Kris Humphries is emerging as part of the Wizards' rotation after being initially slowed by his hand injury.

    Advice: Humphries was dealing with nerve damage in his right hand that required surgery, and now he's really starting to play the role Washington envisioned upon acquiring him in a sign-and-trade during the offseason. "He goes in there and just bangs," Randy Wittman said. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:30 am
  • Shane Larkin will start for Knicks on Sunday
    Shane Larkin will start for the Knicks on Sunday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Larkin has been inconsistent all season but has shown flashes of good play. However, Jose Calderon (calf) is expected to return very soon meaning that Larkin should be left on the waiver wire in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Nov 16, 9:24 am
  • Robert Covington will be available Monday
    Robert Covington, who was signed out of the D-League on Saturday, will be available to play for the 76ers on Monday in San Antonio.

    Advice: He has a huge opportunity for playing time in Philly and will likely see a good chunk of minutes right out of the gate. He is worthy of a flier in deeper leagues while owners in standard leagues can take a wait-and-see approach. Covington was the first pick in this year's D-League draft so he does possess some talent. At the very least, keep an eye on him going forward. Rotoworld.com
    Nov 16, 8:23 am
  • Alex Len scores 17 with 11 boards vs. LAC
    Alex Len scored a career-high 17 points with 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 26 minutes against the Clippers during a 120-107 loss on Saturday.

    Advice: He fell off the map in the previous five games, failing to top five points or five boards in any game with just one block in that span. Len has a chance to get minutes this year because Miles Plumlee is far from safe to get consistent playing time. We'd like to see it again, but owners in deep leagues might want to beat the rush and grab him. Rotoworld.com
    Nov 16, 12:15 am
  • Solomon Hill has first double-double vs. CHI
    Solomon Hill had the first double-double of his career on Saturday during a 99-90 win over the Bulls, scoring 21 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

    Advice: After a horrific start in the preseason and in the first four games of the year, Hill has really turned it on. He's getting to the line more and has seen his usage rate jump to 22.8 over his last five outings, averaging 16.6 points, 7.2 boards, 1.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 triples. The Arizona Wildcat has done enough recently to pick him up in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Nov 15, 8:47 pm
  • Kris Humphries plays 26 minutes
    Kris Humphries played 26 minutes off the bench against the Magic on Saturday with 16 points, six rebounds and one block.

    Advice: It's his second game in a row with at least 25 minutes and he's created a nice little role for himself. Humphries has been the primary bench big man and is an option in deep leagues. He could also be a solid pickup if/when Nene goes down. Rotoworld.com
    Nov 15, 7:01 pm
  • Robert Covington to join 76ers on Saturday
    Robert Covington is expected to join up with the 76ers on Saturday, while Chris Johnson is set to be waived.

    Advice: The first pick in this year's D-League draft, Covington has a chance to crack the rotation in Philly and owners in deep leagues should definitely take notice. However, until he proves he can play at a high level, unlike his stint in Houston last season, owners in standard leagues can monitor him from the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
    Nov 15, 9:54 am
  • Shved does not play on Thursday or Friday
    Alexey Shved (back) did not play on Thursday against the Mavs or on Friday against the Rockets.

    Advice: Until Shved can get healthy and build some momentum, he can be ignored in most formats. Rotoworld.com

  • McDaniels plays just 16 minutes on Friday
    K.J. McDaniels played just 16 minutes off the bench on Friday, finishing with four points on 2-of-5 shooting with five rebounds and two steals.

    Advice: Brett Brown is just tightening the leash on his rookie. He's averaging a combined 3.4 steals, blocks and threes in just 23 mpg, and owners should do the opposite and give him a longer leash instead. Rotoworld.com

  • K.J. McDaniels back to the bench on Friday
    K.J. McDaniels will come off the bench against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: He started against the Mavericks and it didn't go well. McDaniels was chewed out by his coach, so he might need some time in the second unit before coach Brett Brown trusts him again. He's a stash guy. Rotoworld.com

  • Bojan Bogdanovic plays 37 minutes
    Bojan Bogdanovic played 37 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with nine points, three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He's been fairly quiet with the exception of a couple big games, but the 3-pointers have buoyed his value. Fantasy owners can probably leave him on the wire until he has a breakout game. Rotoworld.com

  • K.J. McDaniels squanders chance in start
    K.J. McDaniels was a disappointment in the starting lineup against the Mavericks on Thursday with eight points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Coach Brett Brown got a McChunk out of McDaniels for a blown defensive assignment, but it didn't look like it was totally on him on the surface. As bad as this line was, the 76ers just have to play him because who is deserves playing time more than him? JaKarr Sampson? Chris Johnson? Bueller? Anyway, he's worth a look in all leagues as a top-end stash for his output in blocks and treys. Rotoworld.com

  • K.J. McDaniels gets the start on Thursday
    K.J. McDaniels will start against the Mavericks on Thursday night.

    Advice: Well, coach Brett Brown finally budged. McDaniels has been a huge spark off the bench on the defensive end and he's shooting the ball better, as well. Chances are his minutes won't jump up too high tonight, but this is obviously a great sign for the "Free K.J." movement. He's still more of a stash, but a big game could change that. Rotoworld.com

  • Kostas Papanikolaou draws praise from McHale
    Rockets head coach Kevin McHale said Kostas Papanikolaou played well in the Rockets win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday.

    Advice: Papanikolaou scored 14 points off the bench in Mexico City to go along with four assists and four three-pointers in 24 minutes. "Papanikolaou played well," Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. "Paps is feeling his way around the league. I thought our young guys did pretty well." Papanikolaou can provide some fantasy value in deeper leagues, but Terrence Jones' eventual return from a leg injury should keep the 24-year-old on waivers in almost every league. Rotoworld.com

  • Kostas Papanikolaou scores 14 off bench
    Kostas Papanikolaou came off the bench to hit 4-of-8 shots (all 3-pointers) for 14 points and four assists in 24 minutes of Wednesday's easy win.

    Advice: He's getting extra minutes with Terrence Jones out with a leg injury, but is still only worth a spot start in deep or daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Alex Len's minutes stay low on Wednesday
    Alex Len played just 12 minutes against the Nets on Wednesday with five points and five boards.

    Advice: After what looked like a promising run, Len has taken a bit of a backseat in the rotation. He could pop up at some point down the line, but he's only worth owning in very deep leagues right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Bojan Bogdanovic has a decent game
    Bojan Bogdanovic scored 14 points against the Suns on Wednesday with two rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: It was a mild letdown from his 22-point gem on Sunday, but it's still the kind of line that shouldn't send his owners running for the hills. Bogdanovic should get better as the year goes along, so he's an option at the end of a standard league bench. Rotoworld.com
