    • Alexey Shved not available to play Saturday
      Alexey Shved will not be available for the Rockets on Saturday.

      Advice: Shved was traded from the 76ers on Friday and can't play because Troy Daniels hasn't passed his physical, but Shved should be available for Monday's game vs. the Trail Blazers. Given the Rockets' backcourt depth, however, there's no reason to own Shved in any leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Watson (illness) now questionable
      C.J. Watson is questionable for Saturday against the Nuggets with an illness.

      Advice: He was probable as of Friday with a sinus infection, so a downgrade doesn't sound promising. Watson would be looking at a chance to start, but he hasn't been involved in the offense much since his return. If he's out, Donald Sloan would be worth a look. Rotoworld.com

    • Jason Terry (personal) active for Saturday
      Jason Terry (personal) is back with the Houston Rockets after his wife had a baby, and is expected to be available for their game vs. the Hawks Saturday.

      Advice: Patrick Beverley is healthy and is playing well, so Terry will return to his limited role off of the bench. Terry is not an option in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Russ Smith recalled from NBA D-League Sat
      Russ Smith was recalled from the NBA D-League on Saturday.

      Advice: Gal Mekel was recently waived, so Smith could potentially see some minutes as a backup point guard. However, he won't see enough minutes to matter in most leagues, so he can be left on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Coach Derek Fisher still aiming for playoffs
      Coach Derek Fisher said that he is confident that the Knicks will make a run at the playoffs this season, despite the team sitting at 5-23 on the season.

      Advice: It is really hard to read this without smiling, as it seems impossible to think that the Knicks would have a shot to recover from what is their worst start in franchise history. Regardless, the Knicks are nine losses behind Boston for the eighth seed, so it is not entirely out of the question. Owners of Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire can only hope that the Knicks can turn things around, because there would be no point for the Knicks to risk the health of their two aging veterans in a lost season.

    • Price scores season-high 14 points
      Ronnie Price scored a season-high 14 points with four 3-pointers and three assists over 26 minutes in Friday's loss to the Thunder.

      Advice: Price is outside of the top-200 despite playing 21 mpg this season and that's all owners need to know to leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Nate Robinson scores 20 points with four 3s
      Nate Robinson hit four 3-pointers off the bench on Friday, finishing with 20 points on 6-of-11 shooting, five rebounds, three assists and one steal in 16 minutes.

      Advice: That's quite an explosion in limited minutes and he has had an extremely slow start to this year, so owners can sit back and see if he does it again. Rotoworld.com

    • Joseph posts 10-8-7 line in triple-OT game
      Cory Joseph scored 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with eight rebounds and seven assists over 43 minutes in Friday's triple-overtime loss to the Blazers.

      Advice: Joseph has played admirably enough in fill-in duty for Tony Parker (hamstring) and this line was certainly aided by the extra minutes. He's worth a deep league look whenever Parker is out. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:10 pm
    • Blake posts versatile line with Batum out
      Steve Blake logged 36 minutes off the bench in Friday's triple-overtime win, scoring 10 points on 3-of-7 shooting with five rebounds, four assists and two threes.

      Advice: Blake is worth a look as a low-end play while Batum is out following his hard fall on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:48 pm
    • X-rays negative on Beno Udrih
      X-rays were negative on Beno Udrih's right index finger.

      Advice: He was in a lot of pain and did not return. Udrih doesn't sound like he's going to miss much time, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues. He was playing well, scoring 15 points with one assist and two steals in 20 minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • Aaron Brooks scores 17 in 32 minutes
      Aaron Brooks scored 17 points in a 103-97 win at Memphis on Friday with one rebound, four assists, three 3-pointers and four turnovers.

      Advice: He had three turnovers before scoring or handing out an assists and he really turned it on in the third quarter. Derrick Rose only has an illness, so he should be ready to roll on Monday. Brooks can be left on the wire. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:41 pm
    • Jack next man up after Williams calf injury
      Jarrett Jack scored 13 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one three in Friday's loss, and he could be in line for more playing time if Deron Williams' calf injury is serious.

      Advice: Williams is probably heading for an MRI and he's not the most durable guy around, so Jack makes sense as a speculative add. Just keep in mind that he has been pretty terrible lately, but that could be a function of being a secondary player next to two guys in Williams and Joe Johnson that dominate the ball. Rotoworld.com

    • Payton double-doubles with 11 and 11 vs. UTA
      Elfrid Payton double-doubled with 11 points and 11 assists in Friday's loss, hitting 5-of-7 shots (no threes) with two rebounds and one steal in 28 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: This is one of his best lines of the season and it's nowhere near good enough to get us to overlook his massive fantasy deficiencies up and down the stat sheet. He's only worth a look in points leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 8:29 pm
    • C.J. Watson (illness) is probable for Sat
      C.J. Watson (illness) is probable to play against the Nuggets on Saturday.

      Advice: He did not finish practice and has been ill since Wednesday. Watson should be fine, but his fantasy value is about to take a hit with George Hill almost ready to go. Rotoworld.com

    • Alexey Shved traded to Houston on Friday
      Alexey Shved has been traded to the Rockets in exchange for Ronny Turiaf.

      Advice: He was gettting minutes as the backup point guard and is unlikely to be in the rotation with the Rockets considering he can't shoot. Shved can be cut across the board. Rotoworld.com

    • Troy Daniels headed to the Wolves
      Troy Daniels has been traded to the Wolves.

      Advice: He was lighting it up int he D-League last year and also has a game-winning shot in the NBA playoffs last season, but Daniels isn't quite a lock for minutes once the team is at full strength. However, with Ricky Rubio (ankle) and Kevin Martin (wrist) out, he could get some run. Of course, he's only worth a look in extremely deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jerryd Bayless plays 29 minutes on Thursday
      Jerryd Bayless played 29 minutes against the Kings on Thursday with 17 points, four rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers.

      Advice: O.J. Mayo battled some foul trouble, so Bayless picked up some of the slack. He's going to get minutes in the mid-20s while the Bucks try to figure out how to fill their minutes at the forward spots, so he might have some low-end value in standard leagues for the next couple weeks. Rotoworld.com

    • Aaron Brooks scores 18 off the bench
      Aaron Brooks played 25 minutes off the bench against the Knicks on Thursday with 18 points, two rebounds, five assists, one steal and five 3-pointers.

      Advice: Derrick Rose (illness) is not traveling with the Bulls for Friday, so chances are Brooks has another game ready to go on Friday. Although, it's not going to be as great of a matchup against the Grizzlies, but he's still worth a look for short-term value. Rotoworld.com
      Thursday, 8:27 pm
    • Jason Terry out on Thursday
      Jason Terry (personal) will not play against the Pelicans on Thursday.

      Advice: He is still with his wife for the first of their child. Terry is not going to be needed nearly as much with Patrick Beverley back to 100 percent. He can be cut just about everywhere. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Watson goes for 12 & 4 in start
      C.J. Watson had 12 points, four assists and five turnovers on 3-of-9 shooting in Wednesday's loss.

      Advice: CJW is likely going to continue to start until George Hill is ready to play again, so he's worth holding until we see Hill back on the floor after his knee injury. Rotoworld.com

    • Jerryd Bayless scores 10 in 22 minutes
      Jerryd Bayless scored 10 points with two rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 22 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: He played his first two seasons in Portland, but didn't get his revenge. Bayless is likely to see a slight increase in playing time, but he's not taking many threes and is posting a low usage, so it's hard to be too excited about grabbing him in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Wednesday, 11:14 pm
    • C.J. Watson will start against the Clippers
      C.J. Watson (illness) will start against the Clippers on Wednesday.

      Advice: He missed shootaround due to an illness, but it sounds like he's good to go based on the starting distinction. Watson has been inconsistent on the season, averaging 11.2 points, 4.4 assists and 1.2 triples in 25.0 minutes. He's worth owning in deeper leagues until George Hill (knee) is back. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Watson (illness) is questionable vs. LAC
      C.J. Watson was not at shootaround and is questionable to face the Clippers on Wednesday due to a sinus infection.

      Advice: He has been playing around 30 minutes per night before taking garbage time into account, so the Pacers would have a big hole to fill. Donald Sloan would pick up some extra playing time while Rodney Stuckey's minutes would be extremely safe. Rotoworld.com

    • Cory Joseph set to start again on Wednesday
      Cory Joseph is set to draw another start on Wednesday in the absence of Tony Parker (hamstring).

      Advice: Parker currently doesn't have a timetable to return, so Joseph should start for the foreseeable future. In his last start for the Spurs, Joseph tallied 12 points, five boards, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes. He should also be in line for a few more assists on Wednesday, so this kind of production is worthy in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jason Terry (baby) will miss Wednesday's game
      Jason Terry will miss Wednesday's game in Denver to be with his wife who just gave birth to their baby.

      Advice: He'll likely return to the lineup on Thursday for a home game vs. the Pelicans, and his absence will translate to more minutes for Isaiah Canaan. However, both Canaan and Terry's value is extremely limited with Patrick Beverley back in the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com

    • Cory Joseph scores 12 on Monday night
      Cory Joseph scored 12 points against the Blazers on Monday with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

      Advice: He's been solid in his previous five starts, averaging 12.2 points, 3.8 boards, 4.0 dimes, 0.6 blocks and 0.2 triples on 57.1 percent from the field. Tony Parker hasn't looked like himself since he had a hamstring injury, so there's a good chance Joseph gets another start on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

    • Jerryd Bayless plays 26 minutes vs. Suns
      Jerryd Bayless had a nice game in his hometown vs. the Suns on Monday, scoring 11 points with four rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in a 96-94 win.

      Advice: He's played in at least 20 minutes with at least nine points in each of his last five, averaging 10.8 points, 3.4 boards, 3.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.8 triples. He should get a few minutes of extra playing time as the Bucks shift their wings up to the three and four spots. He's worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Watson scores 12 points with four assists
      C.J. Watson scored 12 points on 3-of-3 shooting (6-of-7 FTs) with zero rebounds, four assists and two steals over 23 minutes in Monday's blowout win.

      Advice: Watson's line wouldn't have had as many holes if he played the full amount, but looking forward George Hill's eventual return will steal away his upside. Tonight's minutes will probably look pretty familiar when that happens though, so he could retain low-end value in 12-16 team leagues at that point. Rotoworld.com

    • Nate Robinson (back) returns to action Sun
      Nate Robinson (back) returned to action for the Nuggets on Sunday and scored just two points on 1-of-7 shooting while adding two boards and two assists in 15 minutes.

      Advice: He didn't look comfortable out there and it is possible that his back is still bothering him. Robinson will only see a limited role off of the bench for the Nuggets this season and won't be worth owning unless Ty Lawson goes down with an injury. Robinson can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Nate Robinson (back) will play Sunday vs. SA
      Nate Robinson (back) will play Sunday vs. the Spurs.

      Advice: Nate will help backup Ty Lawson, but he's currently averaging just 5.5 points and 1.8 assists on the season while shooting 34.5 percent from the field. He's not a viable option in standard leagues as long as Lawson is healthy. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 3:57 pm
    • Nate Robinson (back) likely won't play Sunday
      Nate Robinson (back) likely won't play in Sunday's game against the Spurs, even though he was able to dress for Saturday's game.

      Advice: He was on the Nuggets bench Saturday, but coach Brian Shaw opted not to risk Robinson's health as he is still struggling with his back injury. "I had a pretty bad knee to the back," Robinson said. "It's probably one of the worst pains I've ever felt in live action, besides playing football. But me, if I'm not playing, I'm really hurt." Coach Shaw also stressed that he preferred that Robinson make it through a practice first before he would think about playing him, so this news suggest that Robinson will probably sit out on Sunday, though he will still probably dress.

    • C.J. Watson scores 23 points in 33 minutes
      C.J. Watson had his best game of the season on Saturday with 23 points, one rebound, five assists and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

      Advice: He made just 37.1 percent from the field this season before tonight, but buried 8-of-11 in a losing effort. His minutes have been on the rise and he should be able to keep his minutes in the mid 20s even when George Hill gets back. He's worth a look for owners need treys. Rotoworld.com

    • Nate Robinson (back) will play on Saturday
      Nate Robinson (back) said that he will be active for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

      Advice: He is the only other capable point guard behind Ty Lawson, so coach Brian Shaw probably won't hesitate to use him. However, Robinson doesn't have a large enough role to matter in most leagues and belongs on the waiver wire for now. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 10:31 am
    • Nate Robinson (back) questionable on Saturday
      Nate Robinson (back) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. Houston.

      Advice: The Nuggets could really use another ball handler behind Ty Lawson, so the Nuggets will desperately hope that he can play. Robinson still won't see enough minutes to matter in most leagues even if he is healthy, so he should be left on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Cory Joseph played 35 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Lakers, scoring 16 points on 7-of-14 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, five assists, four steals and one block.

      Advice: Joseph has been getting a lot of run lately, averaging 28.9 mpg over his last eight contests with low-end value for 12-team leagues in that span. It's going to be hard to rely on him with so many moving parts in San Antonio, but he's worth a look in deeper formats while he's hot. Rotoworld.com

      C.J. Watson started at point guard in Friday's loss, scoring 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes.

      Advice: Watson has been knocking off the rust for the most part since returning to action but this is a nice look for him. He's worth a hard look for a chance at solid late-round value while George Hill is out. Rotoworld.com

      Elfrid Payton played 21 minutes against the Hawks on Friday, making 1-of-5 from the field for two points with one rebound, two assists and two turnovers.

      Advice: Yes, he is getting more minutes, but who cares? Payton is such a negative in turnovers, field goal percentage and free throw percentage while not making triples that he's going to need to turn into Anthony Davis in the other categories to offset those deficiencies. He's the No. 338 player on per-game value. Rotoworld.com

      Aaron Brooks scored 17 points on 8-of-10 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds and four assists in just 17 minutes on Friday.

      Advice: Brooks hasn't played well enough to be on rosters in most 12-14 team formats, and tonight's minutes are right in line with the 17-18 mpg he has played for the last two weeks. If he can string some bigger outings together we'll let you know. Rotoworld.com

    • C.J. Watson will start on Friday vs. Toronto
      C.J. Watson will enter the starting lineup on Friday, with Rodney Stuckey shifting over to SG, and Solomon Hill headed to the bench.

      Advice: Watson will be tasked with running the Pacers' offense, but he's a risky play in daily leagues due to his hit-or-miss nature. Stuckey could benefit by moving to his natural position of shooting guard, and he has a decent matchup vs. the Raptors tonight. Watson is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues, as George Hill is still not close to making a return. Rotoworld.com

      C.J. Watson hit just 1-of-7 shots for eight points, seven assists and two steals in 28 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: He came off the bench, but given how poorly some of the Pacer starters have played lately, it's not out of the question that CJW is starting soon. He'll take a hit once George Hill is back, and has been pretty inconsistent thus far, but after the Pacer starters were benched tonight, things could be changing in Indy. Rotoworld.com
