    Advice: He had a chance to compete for minutes, but the ankle injury may have cost him. Lee will likely wind up overseas. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Richardson (foot) has a stress fracture
    Jason Richardson (knee, foot) suffered a stress fracture to his right foot and he will be out indefinitely.

    Advice: He showed up to practice today in a walking boot and now we know why. Without even knowing the specifics, it seems like Richardson is very likely to be out for the season, which opens up minutes for K.J. McDaniels, Chris Johnson and Elliot Williams. K.J. is the only player worthy of your attention in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Grizzlies waive Kalin Lucas on Saturday
    The Grizzlies waived Kalin Lucas and Patrick Christopher on Saturday.

    Advice: They are expected to join the D-league and both are off of the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com

  • Peyton Siva to be waived by the Magic
    The Orlando Magic have waived Peyton Siva, Seth Curry, Kadeem Batts, and Drew Crawford on Saturday.

    Advice: This was an expected move and these four players will end up in the D-league if they clear waivers. None of them have any fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Cartier Martin could start on Wednesday
    Coach Stan Van Gundy confirmed on Saturday that Cartier Martin will start at shooting guard on Wednesday if Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is unable to suit up.

    Advice: If KCP does indeed sit out then Martin could be a decent daily option especially with Jodie Meeks (back) still out. KCP is still the player to target late in your drafts for his upside and he is not expected to be out much longer. Rotoworld.com

  • Ben McLemore passes concussion test
    Ben McLemore (eye) received five stitches above his right eye, and passed his precautionary concussion test.

    Advice: McLemore was disappointing last season, and even though he has made strides in the preseason, it appears he will be locked in a timeshare with promising rookie Nik Stauskas. Neither player should be targeted in standard leagues, although Stauskas would be the better choice in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (sore foot) could miss opener
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) said he hasn't done on-court work lately and is unsure if he'll be ready to start the season.

    Advice: He's been out since Oct. 18 and this injury is taking a lot to heal than anticipated. Stuckey is expected to be a major part of the offense, but he's not exactly a must-grab player later in drafts because of a lack of triples and inefficient shooting. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:27 am
  • Jason Richardson in a walking boot
    Jason Richardson (knee, right foot) was in a walking boot on Saturday.

    Advice: Weird. He's been recovering from knee surgery, so the walking boot on his foot is something new. Richardson's story just keeps getting weirder and he probably won't be seeing action for a while. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:00 am
  • Xavier Silas, James, Lucas are waived
    Wizards waive G Xavier Silas, F Damion James and G John Lucas.

    Advice: Silas had a nice 16-point game after the Bradley Beal (wrist) injury, but the team seems to have plenty of confidence on Otto Porter and Garrett Temple to fill in. Rotoworld.com

  • Raptors waive Will Cherry
    Raptors waive G Will Cherry.

    Advice: He finished the preseason just 2-of-9 from the field and 1-of-3 from the line in his last two games. Cherry was great at summer league, but it obviously didn't translate. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:59 am
  • Norris Cole starts, plays well on Friday
    Norris Cole started against the Grizzlies on Friday, scoring 14 points with two rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

    Advice: He needed a strong couple games and came through. Shabazz Napier was pushing Cole for minutes, but he should be in the rotation. He might actually start, but Mario Chalmers is still the better option in most leagues as a sixth man. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:38 am
  • Knicks might not keep Shane Larkin
    The Knicks may opt to not exercise the option on Shane Larkin's contract.

    Advice: The team was expected to pick up his option earlier this month, but they may want to keep the cap space. Larkin is expected to get some run in the second unit and may have value if Jose Calderon (calf) needs to miss time. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:48 am
  • Evan Fournier puts up a nice line
    Evan Fournier played well off the bench against the Mavericks on Friday with 12 points, one rebound, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's on the fantasy radar as a deep-league pickup while Victor Oladipo (face) is on the mend. Fournier will handle the ball a lot and should be have some nice short-term value. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:49 am
  • Warriors waive Jason Kapono
    Warriors waive G/F Jason Kapono.

    Advice: When you have Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, you don't need more 3-pointer specialists. Kapono may wind up on a 10-day deal at some point. Rotoworld.com

  • Warriors waive Aaron Craft
    Warriors waive G Aaron Craft.

    Advice: He had a nice run at summer league and was a leader on the court for that team, but he still has to come around from a talent standpoint. Craft will still be a pro basketball player somewhere, which is pretty cool. Rotoworld.com

  • Dante Exum benched after struggling vs. Suns
    Dante Exum scored two points with one block and zero rebounds, assists or steals in 10 minutes off Utah's bench on Friday.

    Advice: Head coach Quin Snyder said he benched Exum because he was struggling with the physicality of the Suns' guards. That will be a theme for the rookie during the 2014-15 season, and it's one more reason to avoid him on draft day. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Richardson may not play this season
    76ers head coach Brett Brown stated during a recent interview that he feels "it will be a challenge" for Jason Richardson (knee) to suit up this season.

    Advice: Richardson wasn't able to suit up all of last season, and only made it through 33 games the previous year, so if he were to play there would definitely be some serious rust to shake off. Richardson is in the final years of his career, and it really doesn't make sense for the veteran to play any games for a tanking (rebuilding?) 76er squad. Whether he plays or not, he's certainly not worth wasting a draft pick on in almost any format. Rotoworld.com

  • Cartier shines: Martin steals six, scores 17
    Cartier Martin had six steals in 32 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday to go with 17 points, two rebounds and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He has played well and would get some serious burn if Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (knee) needs to miss time. There has been very little info on KCP, but he's expected to be ready for opening night. You can just keep an eye on Cartier in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Norris Cole nearing deadline for extension
    Norris Cole and the Heat are closing in on the October 31st deadline for a contract extension.

    Advice: "I only can control what I can control," said Cole. "That's being professional and making sure my play on the court is the best it can be, and everything else I'm sure will take care of itself." Cole has taken over starting point guard duties in Miami, and is hoping to ink a new multi-year deal. He could be a steal in later rounds of standard drafts. Rotoworld.com

  • Shane Larkin starts, scores five in win
    Shane Larkin started at point guard against the Wizards on Wednesday, posting a line of five points, four boards, four assists and two turnovers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: John Wall made him look pretty bad and Larkin's lack of size was a factor tonight. Still, coach Derek Fisher likes his speed and ability to penetrate, so he should be in the rotation. Unless Jose Calderon (calf) misses time, Larkin won't be worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Norris Cole starts again at point guard
    Norris Cole started again at point guard on Tuesday, while Mario Chalmers came off the bench at shooting guard.

    Advice: It looks like Cole has won the PG job in Miami, and while he had just seven points, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer on 3-of-4 shooting tonight, he played just 14 minutes. He's a nice, cheap option at point guard in the later rounds of your draft. Especially if Chalmers is playing shooting guard, and Shabazz Napier is struggling (0-for-7 tonight). Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:27 pm
  • Norris Cole playing through back tightness
    Norris Cole is expected to start on Tuesday despite dealing with tightness in his back.

    Advice: Cole may start at PG for Miami on opening night, but he faces competition for minutes from both Mario Chalmers and rookie Shabazz Napier. Given the uncertainty surrounding his role and playing time, fantasy owners are better off leaving him undrafted in typical leagues. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: The injury is not considered serious, and we expect him to be 100 percent for opening night. Stuckey is going to be the starting shooting guard for a Pacers team that doesn't have many offensive weapons, so he could score a lot of points this season. He's worth a late-round selection, but just know he doesn't contribute much to the stat sheet outside of points and free throw percentage. Rotoworld.com

  • Malcolm Lee out with a sprained ankle
    Malcolm Lee (ankle) will not play against the Nets on Monday.

    Advice: He was on his way to his biggest game before spraining his ankle in his 10th minute of action on Saturday. Lee could wind up making the team, but that has a lot to do with how the 76ers handle the Jason Richardson situation. Rotoworld.com

  • Norris Cole could lose some minutes
    Norris Cole could be in jeopardy of losing regular minutes with they way rookie Shabazz Napier has played this month.

    Advice: This may seem obvious, but a lot has to do with how the Heat use Mario Chalmers. He's been playing a lot of minutes at shooting guard because the Heat have some depth issues there. Meanwhile, Napier has been one of the best rookies in the preseason. If Chalmers does start at point guard, the minutes for Cole are going to be very tough to come by. Rotoworld.com

  • Dante Exum quiet in start at PG w/ Burke out
    Dante Exum started at PG on Sunday and finished with five points, four rebounds, five assists, one steal and four turnovers in 28 minutes vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: He made 2-of-7 field goals (0-of-4 from deep) and only started because Trey Burke was given the night off. As a 19-year-old with minimal professional experience and a backup role, fantasy owners are right to be skeptical of his value as a rookie. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 19, 10:31 pm
  • Kings pick up option on Ben McLemore
    The Kings picked up their $3.2 million option on Ben McLemore's contract on Sunday.

    Advice: He had a rough game on Saturday, but did well overall in preseason thus far. If McLemore can stave off Nik Stauskas, he may be worth a spot in deep leagues, but a timeshare looks imminent, making it tough to own either in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 19, 11:50 am
  • Ben McLemore stinks on Saturday
    Ben McLemore made just 1-of-7 from the field for four points on Saturday.

    Advice: He was actually playing well in the preseason, so we can't bash him here. Still, McLemore is not worth drafting in almost any league. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 18, 10:48 pm
  • Malcolm Lee sprains his ankle
    Malcolm Lee suffered a left ankle sprain on Saturday and did not return.

    Advice: He has a chance to make the team, but he's falling behind guys like Elliot Williams and K.J. McDaniels for minutes. Lee can be ignored in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Norris Cole gets outshined by Napier
    Norris Cole played just 17 minutes against the Spurs during a 111-108 win on Saturday with seven points, one rebound, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: The Heat went to the line a whopping 47 times tonight because of Shabazz Napier taking 14 of them. Cole is still likely to be ahead of Napier, but the gap is closing. Neither are worthy of drafting in most leagues, but Cole does take a mild hit in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 18, 8:55 pm
  • Evan Fournier puts up a dud vs. Philly
    Evan Fournier made 1-of-6 from the field against the 76ers on Saturday for two points, one rebound, one assist and two steals in 27 minutes.

    Advice: It wasn't a great game for him after being rested on Wednesday. Fournier is going to come off the bench and spell Victor Oladipo (knee), but he'll have some ball-handling opportunities. Fantasy owners can give him a look late in 16-team drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 18, 7:17 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey (foot) is out on Saturday
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) will sit out on Saturday according to coach Vogel.

    Advice: His foot is just sore and the Pacer's are going to be cautious with him during the preseason. consider him day-to-day for now and expect him to be ready for the season. Stuckey is penciled in as the starting SG for the Pacers this season so if you are in need of a pure scorer, he is worth a late-round pick. C.J. Miles and Chris Copeland are the starting wings on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 18, 2:36 pm
  • Cole to start over Chalmers again on Friday
    Norris Cole will start at point guard instead of Mario Chalmers in Friday's exhibition against the Warriors.

    Advice: All Eric Spoelstra would offer about the decision to local media was, "Just trying to get to know our team." There's been a lot of smoke surrounding Chalmers' disappearing act this preseason and owners should consider the possibility that Cole is moving in on the job. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Oct 17, 4:37 pm
  • Dante Exum has his best line as a pro
    Dante Exum had his best game as a pro on Thursday against the Lakers, making 3-of-6 from the field for 13 points, one rebound, six assists, no turnovers and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He made all six attempts from the line and was a huge plus off the bench. The Lakers have been lost on defense, so this terrific game does come with a grain of salt. He's going to start the season slow, but maybe he'll be on the radar in a couple months. Rotoworld.com

  • Knicks pick up Shane Larkin's 3rd year option
    The New York Knicks have decided to pick up Shake Larkin's third-year contract option, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

    Advice: After going back and forth, the Knicks have decided to guarantee the $1.67 million on his Larkin's for the 2015-16 season. The 22-year-old is averaging 2.5 points and 1.5 assists in 20 minutes per game during the preseason and isn't much of a standard league fantasy option unless Jose Calderon goes down with an injury.
