  • Pistons send Tony Mitchell to D-League
    The Pistons have sent Tony Mitchell to the D-League.

    Advice: How irrelevant has Mitchell been over the last year? Our last post about him happened almost a year ago on Dec. 13, with a headline reading "Pistons send Tony Mitchell to D-League." Rotoworld.com

  • Lakers working on deal with F Earl Clark
    The Lakers are on the verge of signing F Earl Clark to a one-year contract, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Advice: He'll help make up for the loss of Julius Randle, as well as the current injury to Carlos Boozer, but might also hurt the strong play of Ed Davis. Then again, Clark has never really lived up to the hype, but is averaging close to 30 points in the D-League this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Cameron Bairstow struggles in first NBA start
    Bulls rookie Cameron Bairstow earned his first career start at PF on Tuesday, notching two points, two rebounds, one assist and one block in 19 minutes.

    Advice: He filled in at PF due to the absence of both Joakim Noah (knee, eye) and Taj Gibson (knee), but racked up four fouls and struggled defensively, which won't endear him to Tom Thibodeau. As tonight's line indicates, Bairstow can be ignored for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Thompson scoreless vs. Pelicans
    Jason Thompson went scoreless in 33 minutes during Tuesday's win vs. the Pelicans, adding seven rebounds, one assist and one block.

    Advice: Thompson is an afterthought offensively, averaging 4.2 points on 37.1 percent shooting this season, and even when he plays well it rarely shows up in the boxscore. Few players have as poor a minute-to-fantasy-value ratio, and Thompson simply isn't worth a roster spot in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:47 pm
  • Derrick Williams scoreless in Tuesday's win
    On the heels of consecutive double-digit scoring games, Derrick Williams posted a donut on 0-of-5 shooting vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday.

    Advice: He chipped in just two rebounds in 17 minutes of action, and his disappearing act is even more disappointing since Rudy Gay (Achilles) was unavailable for the Kings. Any momentum Williams had has been squandered, and he belongs on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Marreese Speights cools off w/ eight points
    Marreese Speights followed up Sunday's 28-point game with eight points (4-of-5 FGs) and five rebounds vs. the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: Andrew Bogut (eye) missed most of Sunday's game but he was back in action tonight, which limited Speights to his usual 15 minutes of action. He scored double-digit points in four straight games prior to Tuesday but it will be hard for him to keep up that pace as the Warriors' backup center. Owners in standard leagues shouldn't hang onto him if there's a free agent with more upside. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:22 pm
  • Kris Humphries quiet in start for Nene (foot)
    Starting in place of Nene (foot) on Tuesday, Kris Humphries logged 22 minutes and had seven points (2-of-7 FGs, 3-of-6 FTs), 10 rebounds and three turnovers.

    Advice: Humphries has been playing well off the bench since recovering from a hand laceration that limited him during the preseason, and he's worth a look in deeper leagues as long as Nene is on the sidelines. Just be mindful that he's a sub-par FT shooter who won't contribute much beyond points and rebounds. Rotoworld.com

  • Mike Scott scores 17 points in 22 minutes
    Mike Scott poured in 17 points in 22 minutes on Tuesday, making 5-of-10 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws in a road win vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: Scott hit two 3-pointers and added seven rebounds, one assist, and even blocked a shot for the first time this season. While this performance will delight owners lucky enough to have started him, his 15-minute role off the bench isn't yielding value outside of 20-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:45 pm
  • Cameron Bairstow starting for Bulls on Tues.
    Bulls F Cameron Bairstow will start Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Joakim Noah (eye, knee) and Taj Gibson (ankle) are out and Pau Gasol is filling in at center, and coach Tom Thibodeau likely didn't want to disrupt his bench by starting Nikola Mirotic at PF. Bairstow has played a total of 11 minutes this season and fantasy owners should leave him on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:13 pm
  • Perry Jones (knee) still has no timetable
    Perry Jones (bruised knee) still doesn't have a return timetable, according to coach Scott Brooks.

    Advice: "He hasn’t participated in any parts of practice," Brooks said. "He’s just with our medical staff. Just a normal rehab process for his knee. That’s the only thing I know of right now." Jones has been out three weeks since banging his right knee, and by the time he returns Kevin Durant (foot) should be fully healthy and dominating minutes at SF. If you've been clinging to Jones in a deep league, it's probably time to cut him loose. Rotoworld.com

  • Rumor: Al Harrington may soon join HOU?
    According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the Rockets are considering signing 16-year veteran Al Harrington, who was recently cut in China in order to allow him to pursue an NBA return.

    Advice: This is just something to monitor for now, but it's worth noting. Houston's frontcourt has taken a major hit with Dwight Howard (knee) and Terrence Jones (leg) both sidelined, and they have been starting Tarik Black and Donatas Motiejunas. Al Harrington is on his last legs, but still managed to average 6.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 1.0 three-pointer through 34 games with the Wizards last season. He's extremely unlikely to be an impact fantasy player with Houston, but he could serve as a 3-point specialist for owners in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Bonner (stomach virus) probable for Wed.
    Matt Bonner (stomach virus) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Bonner can give you some 3-pointers, but that's about it. He's averaging 6.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.4 three-pointers this season, so he's not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Matt Bonner (illness) probable vs. Pacers
    Matt Bonner (stomach virus) is probable for Wednesday’s game vs. Indiana.

    Advice: Bonner sat out Saturday's game as the Spurs quarantined him to avoid spreading his illness, but he's recovered and might even return to the starting lineup with Tiago Splitter sidelined. He's a poor source of fantasy value beyond the handful of 3-pointers he offers per game. Rotoworld.com

  • Kris Humphries will start Tuesday vs. ATL
    Kris Humphries will enter the starting lineup in place of Nene (foot) for Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: When given the minutes Humphries is a double-double threat, so he should serve as a fine plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Currently there is no timetable set for Nene's (foot) return, so if there's currently a guy on your roster you've been looking to cut, Humphries makes sense as a speculative add. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:16 pm
  • Chris Andersen (ankle) out Tuesday vs. GSW
    Chris Andersen (ankle) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Erik Spoelstra has said that Andersen "will be out for awhile," so this news isn't surprising. Udonis Haslem and Justin Hamilton will split Andersen's backup minutes, but neither guy is worthy of any attention in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • No setbacks for James Johnson
    James Johnson didn't suffer a setback in Monday's game when he played just four minutes in his return from an ankle injury.

    Advice: The Raps are just working him back into the mix slowly, so it might take him a week to get back up to speed. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:24 am
  • Kris Humphries is likely to start on Tuesday
    Kris Humphries may start against the Hawks on Tuesday.

    Advice: It's going to be him or Drew Gooden in place of Nene (foot) tonight. Humphries has played well in his brief time on the court with averages of 6.8 points, 4.7 boards and 0.5 blocks in 15.6 minutes. He should get minutes in the 20s tonight, which makes him a low-end stream play or an option in daily fantasy leagues. Check back later tonight for the starting lineups. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:09 am
  • Chris Andersen (ankle) could be out awhile
    Chris Andersen (ankle) "will be out for awhile," according to coach Erik Spoelstra.

    Advice: This explains why the Heat added Hassan Whiteside and they're extremely thin up front. Andersen owners can cut him loose and there should be more from Udonis Haslem and Justin Hamilton. Whiteside is likely just an emergency guy. Rotoworld.com

  • Al Harrington released by Chinese team
    Al Harrington has been released by Fujian of China.

    Advice: There are reports that Harrington's release is may coincide with an offer he received from an NBA team, but we'll have to await confirmation of those reports. The 34-year-old would join any NBA team as a bench player, however, so his fantasy value would be limited to the deepest of leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Wright has another perfect game on Monday
    Brandan Wright had another perfect game from the field on Monday, hitting all six of his shots for 13 points, four rebounds and two blocks in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Wright is a machine and the only thing that can stop him is his own health, but for now he seems fairly durable and playing behind an older set of big men he has a lot of upside (especially in the case of Tyson Chandler). He's returning top 40-70 value (9/8 cat) and congratulations are in order if you drafted him. Rotoworld.com

  • Scola double-doubles with versatile line
    Luis Scola had a uncharacteristic versatile line in Monday's win over the Mavs, scoring 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting with 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, one three and a 5-of-6 mark from the foul line.

    Advice: Scola has been productive and will probably enjoy the rest of his four-game week, but he will lose his low-end value sooner rather than later when David West and Roy Hibbert return. Rotoworld.com

  • James Johnson plays four minutes on Monday
    James Johnson played four minutes against the Suns with one steal and two fouls.

    Advice: He didn't take a single shot tonight and may not be 100 percent. Johnson said he was "like Wolverine" for recovering so soon from his ankle sprain, but he wasn't a superhero with fouling tonight. He should be better his next time out. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:06 pm
  • James Johnson will play on Monday night
    James Johnson (ankle) will play against the Suns on Monday night.

    Advice: He has been out since Nov. 16 with what looked like a severe ankle sprain, but Johnson is likely going to see his normal minutes. He was actually turning in mid-round value because of all the defensive stats, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. To be clear, he's not a must-own player and obviously won't be a mid-round guy on the season. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 2:49 pm
  • Derrick Williams capitalizing on playing time
    Derrick Williams is looking to take advantage of his recent playing time.

    Advice: Previously an afterthought in Sacramento, Williams is in a contract season and looking to prove he belongs in the NBA. "It’s a big year for myself, but I never want to put pressure on myself," he said. Williams has played back-to-back games of at least 22 minutes and is averaging 11 points and four rebounds over that span. He'll need to do a lot more to make an impression on us, but it's good that he's doing all of the right things while waiting for his opportunity. Rotoworld.com

  • Speights thanks Kendrick Perkins for big game
    After scoring a season-high 28 points on 11-of-18 shooting during Sunday's win in Oklahoma City, Marreese Speights thanked Thunder center Kendrick Perkins.

    Advice: Speights almost single-handedly kept the Warriors in the game after Andrew Bogut left with an orbital contusion, and afterward coach Steve Kerr could only say, "Mo Speights, again, is ridiculous." He used the spotlight to take a shot at his adversary Perkins, saying, "[Perkins] thinks he’s a tough guy, but at the end of the day, his game is terrible. He always has something to say to me, every time we play against each other. It always gets me going, so: ‘Shout out to Perkins’ for helping me get this game." Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 10:27 pm
  • Marreese Speights drops season-high 28 points
    Marreese Speights caught fire once Andrew Bogut went down with an orbital contusion on Sunday, scoring a season-high 28 points on 11-of-18 shooting in just 25 minutes of action.

    Advice: Speights has been a scoring machine off Golden State's bench this year, averaging 10.2 points in just 13.3 minutes per game. He added seven rebounds and two assists tonight, without any steals or blocks, and should be a terrific fill-in fantasy option if Bogut's injury costs him any games. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:10 pm
  • Chris Andersen won't return w/ sprained ankle
    Chris Andersen went down during the Heat-Hornets game with a sprained right ankle, and he will not return.

    Advice: Andersen limped his way to the locker room and the injury looked ugly enough that it's unsurprising to see him ruled out for the night. If he misses an extended period of time, his minutes will be split up between Chris Bosh, Shawne Williams, Josh McRoberts and Udonis Haslem. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
    Saturday, 10:41 pm
  • Brandan Wright stays hot in loss to Rockets
    Brandan Wright hit 6-of-7 shots (as usual) and racked up 14 points, 11 rebounds and three blocks in just 22 minutes on Saturday.

    Advice: Wright is a beast right now and a very economical center in daily leagues. Despite coming off the bench and getting just 19.4 minutes per game, Wright has scored in double figures in seven straight games and came into this one averaging 12.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.0 blocks over his last five. Those numbers are going up and he’s shooting it lights out this season, and hitting 31-of-39 shots over his last six games. If starter Tyson Chandler ever gets hurt, look out. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:31 pm
  • Derrick Williams gets 12 points in 30 minutes
    Derrick Williams had a solid game off the bench on Saturday, making 4-of-7 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs with one 3-pointer to finish with 12 points in a road win in Minnesota.

    Advice: He logged a season-high 30 minutes, which limited Carl Landry to eight minutes and handed Reggie Evans a DNP-CD. This was likely a matchup-based decision by coach Mike Malone, as Williams was better suited to keep pace with the young Wolves' forwards, and we'll need to see a few more strong games before recommending him in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 8:26 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
    Saturday, 8:08 pm
  • Matt Bonner (illness) will not play on Sat.
    Matt Bonner (illness) will not play against the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: He was doubtful and his illness will cost him his third game. Bonner has been helpful for the Spurs while Tiago Splitter (calf) has been out, but he's usually not worth starting in almost any fantasy league. Rotoworld.com

  • James Johnson is out again on Saturday
    James Johnson (ankle) will not play on Saturday against the Cavs.

    Advice: He was not expected to play anyway and hasn't gone through a full practice yet. Terrence Ross and Patrick Patterson will get some extra run tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 3:10 pm
  • Matt Bonner (illness) doubtful for Saturday
    Matt Bonner (illness) is doubtful to face the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Spurs have seen Boris Diaw flourish in the starting lineup over the past couple games and he should get another chance tonight. If you want to give him a look in a daily league, it makes sense. Bonner has very little fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Wright with yet another efficient line on Fri
    Brandan Wright hit all five of his field goal attempts in Friday's blowout win, finishing with 12 points, three boards and two steals in just 19 minutes.

    Advice: Wright is hitting an absurd 77.8 percent from the field while returning top 50-90 value (9/8 cat) in just 18.6 mpg. If you were an early adopter or drafted Wright go ahead and pat yourself on the back, and if your league is still sleeping it's time to wake up. Rotoworld.com

  • Perry Jones still not ready to play
    Perry Jones (knee) will not play against the Nets on Friday.

    Friday, 4:10 pm
  • Matt Bonner (stomach) out Friday vs. Boston
    Matt Bonner (stomach illness) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Bonner has little fantasy value in most fantasy leagues, and his absence just means more minutes for Tim Duncan, Boris Diaw, and Aron Baynes. Bonner can remain on the wire in nearly all formats. Rotoworld.com

    Matt Bonner (stomach illness) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Bonner is averaging just 6.6 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.4 three-pointers on the season, and that pretty much tells you all you need to know about Bonner's non-existent fantasy value. Feel free to leave The Red Mamba on the wire in all but the deepest of leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • James Johnson (ankle) sheds walking boot
    James Johnson (ankle) was moving well without a walking boot after the Raptors' practice on Thursday.

    Advice: The Raptors' defensive specialist and energizer is questionable for Friday's home game vs. the Bucks. It wouldn't be surprising to see him held out another game as a precaution, but we'll have a much clearer idea of his status after shootaround. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandan Wright scores 14 off Mavs bench
    Brandan Wright hit 6-of-7 shots off the bench for 14 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in Wednesday's win.

    Advice: Wright has somehow scored in double figures in five straight games and is averaging 12.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.6 blocks over that stretch, despite playing just 19 minutes a game. He's also hit 24-of-31 shots during that run, and is worth owning in most leagues, despite coming off the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:32 pm
  • James Johnson won't play vs. Memphis
    James Johnson (ankle) will not play against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is in a walking boot and does not have a timetable to return. Johnson is a tough customer, but the Raptors will likely be careful based on how things went with Amir Johnson's ankle last season. Expect more Terrence Ross and Patrick Patterson tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:20 pm
  • Matt Bonner out Wednesday w/ stomach illness
    Matt Bonner will not suit up for the Spurs on Wednesday due to a stomach illness.

    Advice: Tiago Splitter (calf) is still on the shelf, so there will be extra opportunities for Tim Duncan, Boris Diaw and Aron Baynes against the Cavaliers' lenient frontcourt. Bonner is coming off a fluky 18-point game vs. the 76ers, but he's too inconsistent for use as more than a 3-point specialist in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • James Johnson (ankle) still in walking boot
    James Johnson (ankle) was seen still wearing a walking boot Wednesday morning, making him highly doubtful to play against his former Memphis team.

    Advice: It is not looking good for him, and we had our doubts about him recovering in time for this one anyway. Johnson has been huge for Toronto early in the season, and has posted enough defensive statistics to be a nice asset in deeper leagues. However, barring a miracle Johnson will likely sit this one out, meaning Terrence Ross will see a bump in his minutes. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • 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
  • 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

  • Red Mamba scores 18 points in win
    Matt Bonner scored 18 points with one rebound, three assists and four 3-pointers in 20 minutes against the 76ers on Monday.

    Advice: The 76ers will give up big lines and this is one of the funnier ones. Bonner is not worth owning in most leagues, but he's a deep-league spot-start guy while Tiago Splitter (calf) is out. Rotoworld.com

    James Johnson (ankle) has a severe ankle sprain and has no timetable to return.

  • James Johnson 'tender,' skips practice Monday
    James Johnson (ankle) is "tender" and did not participate in Monday's practice.

    Advice: Johnson is holding out hope he can prepare in time for the game on Wednesday, but it's unlikely the Raptors will put him out there at less than full strength. The good news is Johnson's ankle injury doesn't appear to be a major concern, but Dwane Casey admitted he has no idea how long the enigmatic forward will be out. If Johnson can't go, Terrence Ross and Amir Johnson could each see a few extra minutes with Landry Fields also picking up some scraps. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Speights going to play a lot for Warriors
    Steve Kerr said Marreese Speights is "going to play a lot" for the Warriors.

    Advice: Speights has seized the backup center role and has run with it. "He's earned that backup role," Kerr said. Speights dropped 24 points and nine rebounds in just 20 minutes (8-of-11 shooting) against the Lakers on Sunday, and he's playing with extreme confidence under his new head coach. "He's my new favorite player, Mo Speights," Kerr added. Speights improved his work ethic during the offseason, and that work has translated to results for both Speights and the Warriors.

    Marreese Speights blew up in Sunday's easy win vs. the Lakers, scoring 24 points on 8-of-11 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs with nine rebounds in just 20 minutes of action.

    Advice: Speights tied his season high with 16 points in the first half alone, benefiting from the Lakers' utter lack of interior defense. He didn't have any assists, steals or blocks tonight, and is only worth a look if you need scoring and rebounding in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Marreese Speights provides spark for Warriors
    Marreese Speights gave the Warriors a huge lift off of the bench on Saturday, finishing with 13 points, six boards, two assists and a steal in just 15 minutes.

    Advice: While these are fantastic numbers for such limited minutes, owners need to be aware of the fact that David Lee (hamstring) should be back very shortly. In the meantime, deep league owners can continue to roll the dice on Speights for short-term value, as he has been excellent under new coach Steve Kerr. Rotoworld.com

  • Perry Jones (knee) out for Sunday's game
    Perry Jones (knee) will not play in Sunday's game, and has yet to return to practice.

    Advice: He can't seem to turn the corner and it's a terrible shame considering how good he was early in the season. Jones can be ignored in standard leagues with Kevin Durant (foot) on the way back soon and Lance Thomas and Anthony Morrow will continue to fill the void at SF for the depleted Thunder. Thomas is by no means a consideration in almost any league while Morrow makes for an interesting plug-and-play for his 3-point shooting. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandan Wright makes all six from field
    Brandan Wright made all six from the field for 13 points against the Wolves in an easy 131-117 win on Saturday with five rebounds, one assist and one block.

    Advice: He's on a mission to lead the NBA in field goal percentage and he might be the favorite as long as he qualifies. Wright isn't going to be the best player on your fantasy team, but he's a solid contributor. He's worth owning in competitive standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
