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

    Advice: Barton continues to hang onto late-round value in his low-minute role and it's enough to keep throwing kindling on the fire. If he can see some key guys ahead of him call it an early season, there is potential for him to post some really active lines. On the other hand, the Nuggets finish the fantasy playoffs with a pair of three-game weeks so that is working against him. Rotoworld.com

  • Yet another Millsap making noise for Utah
    Elijah Millsap scored 16 points off the bench in 17 minutes on Friday, hitting 6-of-8 shots (including two threes) with three rebounds, three steals and one steal.

    Advice: Millsap also had three turnovers and that might explain the minutes cap, because he's usually in the 30-minute range when the team is banged up. Derrick Favors might miss some time now due to a back injury, and Millsap is worth a look for those seeking money counting stats (3PMs/STLs/BLKs). Rotoworld.com

  • Gerald Green scores 12 in 13 minutes
    Gerald Green scored 12 points in 13 minutes against the Blazers on Friday with five rebounds and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: Coach Jeff Hornacek said he gave Green some extra run because he needed some shooting in the lineup, but Green looked gassed tonight. He probably didn't help himself much for playing time and Brandon Knight (ankle) should be back soon, so leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:24 pm
  • Jefferson (back) returns to action on Friday
    Richard Jefferson (back) returned to action on Friday in a seven-minute outing.

    Advice: Jefferson had just one rebound and one assist and he needs to produce before owners should pay him any attention. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:23 pm
  • Marcus Morris scores 19 points in loss
    Marcus Morris scored 19 points in 44 minutes against the Blazers on Friday with 12 boards, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's been very busy on the glass with four double-digit board games in his last five, averaging 13.6 points, 9.8 boards, 3.6 dimes, 1.4 steals and 1.8 treys on 42.9 percent from the field. Brandon Knight (ankle) was very close to a return yet again tonight, so Marcus will likely be losing playing time in the near future. He's worth owning in standard leagues until Knight can actually make it through a warmup, though. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:18 pm
  • Chase Budinger puts up 23 points vs. Houston
    Chase Budinger scored 23 points against the Rockets on Friday with four rebounds and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

    Advice: He's basically the sixth man for the Wolves right now. The Wolves only had seven guys log more than 10 minutes for the second consecutive game, so being the sixth man is a pretty good gig. Budinger scored 22 points on Wednesday and is worth owning in standard leagues right now. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • Pondexter scores 16 points with four threes
    Quincy Pondexter scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting (including four threes) with five rebounds and two steals against the Kings on Friday.

    Advice: The Kings are good for a few extra 3PAs for their opponents so nothing really stands out here. If you need the triples, give him a look. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • Ryan Kelly plays 31 minutes vs. Raptors
    Ryan Kelly played 31 minutes against the Raptors on Friday with seven points, one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Those are some empty stats with all that playing time. Kelly said he's more comfortable at power forward, but he's not exactly playing with pass-first teammates right now. Kelly is only worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:19 pm
  • Jae Crowder still getting some minutes
    Jae Crowder scored 17 points in 29 minutes off the bench against the Knicks on Friday during a 96-92 win, adding nine rebounds, two steals and one turnover.

    Advice: Even with Isaiah Thomas getting more minutes, Crowder still saw a nice chunk of playing time. Coach Brad Stevens is taking minutes away from Tyler Zeller and Kelly Olynyk, so Crowder might be able to stay fantasy relevant in standard leagues. He's a little too inconsistent to be considered as a strong add, though. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Bogdanovic scores 18 points with two threes
    Bojan Bogdanovic hit 7-of-12 shots (including two threes) for 18 points and four rebounds in 32 minutes off the bench on Friday.

    Advice: Bogdanovic should see enough touches to give owners a shot at some points and threes, but that's just about it. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:44 pm
  • Alan Anderson plays 30 minutes on Friday
    Alan Anderson logged 30 minutes off the bench on Friday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: With Thaddeus Young (knee) looking doubtful for Sunday's game and possibly more, this type of workload seems like a decent bet until Young gets back. Anderson has a week of late-round value under his belt and isn't going to blow you away, but if you need shooting guard stats he could be worth a look. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Cleanthony Early scores 12 points vs. Boston
    Cleanthony Early scored 12 points with five rebounds, one assist, three steals and one turnover in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: He was 5-of-13 from the field and he's finally starting to get some significant run. Alexey Shved (ribs) is likely out for the season, so Early could have an impact in deeper leagues. Until he starts to make shots, he's not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Henderson grabs career-high 14 rebounds
    Gerald Henderson grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds to go with 11 points, one steal, one block and one 3-pointers on Friday against the Wizards.

    Advice: Henderson is producing at a late-round level and the Hornets have a favorable schedule so he should be owned in most standard formats. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:22 pm
  • Tolliver scores 11 points with three treys
    Anthony Tolliver scored 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes on Friday against the Magic.

    Advice: Tolliver could end up starting for the rest of the season if Greg Monroe is shut down, and owners seeking 3-pointers should give him a hard look. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:58 pm
  • Richard Jefferson will play vs. Spurs
    Updating a previous item, Richard Jefferson (back) will play on Friday.

    Advice: An earlier report had RJ as out, but he'll give it a go. He is not in the rotation every night, so chances are his minutes will be limited tonight. Keep him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:09 pm
  • Richard Jefferson (back) out on Friday night
    Richard Jefferson (back) will not play against the Spurs on Friday.

    Advice: He was hopeful to play tonight after shootaround, but apparently something has changed. Expect more minutes from Chandler Parsons and Al-Farouq Aminu. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:56 pm
  • Rodney Hood getting medical evaluation
    Rodney Hood (illness) is getting further medical evaluation.

    Advice: He is not traveling with the team and it sounds like he's going to be out for a while. With Hood out, Joe Ingles will get some extra run along with Elijah Millsap and newly-added Chris Johnson. Rotoworld.com

  • Richard Jefferson (back) will try to play Fri
    Richard Jefferson (back spasms) said he is feeling better and he will try to play Friday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Jefferson isn't a major part of the rotation with Chandler Parsons healthy, so owners in standard leagues should not be concerned whether he plays or not. If he's unable to go, look for Al-Farouq Aminu to pick up most of his reserve minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:57 am
  • Ryan Kelly more comfortable playing at PF
    Ryan Kelly stated during a recent interview that he's more comfortable playing at the power forward position.

    Advice: "I’m a little more comfortable there," Kelly said regarding the power forward spot. "I can get more involved offensively than I had been at times [playing small forward]." Kelly has started at the four-spot the past two games, putting in averages of 13.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 three-pointers, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 block per game. If he can continue to start at power forward, he'll be worth a look in deep leagues for owners seeking some 3-point shooting. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:23 am
  • Flip Saunders praises Chase Budinger's play
    Flip Saunders praised Chase Budinger's play and professionalism during a recent interview.

    Advice: "He’s got his confidence," Saunders said. "He was able to stay with it. He was able to keep on playing through. Some guys, especially veterans, might have given up on it. Said, ‘This is kind of a lost season.’ But he kept on shooting, kept on working on his game. And when an opportunity came, he took advantage of it. He’s extremely professional." Budinger has excelled since being forced into the rotation due to a slew of injuries to Minnesota's roster, and over the past eight games he has put in averages of 12.7 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.5 three-pointers on 53.5 percent shooting. He's worth owning in all standard leagues while he's this hot. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:50 am
  • Rodney Hood (illness) not on road trip
    Rodney Hood (illness) did not travel with the team for their road-game in Denver.

    Advice: We'll be considering Hood doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets, and if he is indeed unavailable, Elijah Millsap and Joe Ingles will have the opportunity to play extended minutes. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Richard Jefferson (back) questionable Friday
    Richard Jefferson (back spasms) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Jefferson isn't a major rotation player for Dallas, so his absence won't mean much. Expect Al-Farouq Aminu to pick up most of his reserve minutes if he is indeed unavailable, but Aminu can't be viewed as a viable option in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:44 pm
  • Marcus Morris scores 19 points vs. Kings
    Marcus Morris scored 19 points with three rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers on 7-of-11 from the field against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Perhaps he's earned more playing time now that he's playing well, averaging 13.8 points, 8.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 1.6 treys on 48.3 percent from the field in his last five. Brandon Knight could be back soon, so Morris owners might want to start planning for his value to dip. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 12:08 am
  • Elijah Millsap starts for Gordon Hayward
    Elijah Millsap started for Gordon Hayward (shoulder) and hit 4-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, eight boards, two assists and a steal in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Not a terrible line, but not one that will really grab your attention, either. Trey Burke also started and had 22 points, while Joe Ingles came off the bench for 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, three steals and a 3-pointer on 4-of-10 shooting. As long as Hayward is out, we're guessing Burke could be the man to own for scoring, while Millsap and Ingles will be better bets for the intangibles. Rodney Hood was also out with an illness, which helped the aforementioned players. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:42 pm
  • Will Barton doesn't play in the fourth
    Will Barton did not play in the fourth quarter against the 76ers on Wednesday, finishing with six points, five rebounds, one block and one turnover in 22 minutes.

    Advice: He wasn't the worst player on the team tonight and coach Melvin Hunt likely just went with some other guys down the stretch. It didn't work with the 76ers winning the fourth quarter 27-9, so at least Barton has that going for him. He should get some extra minutes with the Nuggets having a back-to-back set this weekend. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:32 pm
  • Chase Budinger scores season-high 22
    Chase Budinger came off the bench and played 40 minutes, hitting 9-of-14 shots and three 3-pointers for a season-high 22 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Lakers.

    Advice: He sent the game to OT with a 3-pointer with 6.6 seconds left in regulation and has now scored in double figures in seven straight games. Pick him up, and hope that Kevin Martin continues to sit for his hamstring, as well as tanking purposes. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:49 pm
  • Ryan Kelly goes for 11 & 8 in start
    Ryan Kelly had 11 points, eight rebounds, a steal and a block on 4-of-13 shooting in Wednesday's overtime win against the Wolves.

    Advice: The Lakers have benched both Jordan Hill and Carlos Boozer as the tank-train gets cranked up, but Jordan Clarkson hit a couple free throws in the clutch to get the Lakers a disappointing win. Kelly, Ed Davis and Tarik Black are all worth a look right now as the Lakers should continue to sit Hill and Boozer as long as they can get away with it. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:24 pm
  • Jae Crowder scores 16 off bench
    Jae Crowder moved back to the bench on Wednesday and had 16 points and seven rebounds in 27 minutes in a loss to the Heat.

    Advice: Crowder has been bouncing in and out of the starting lineup, but still manages to be productive on most nights. And with Brandon Bass appearing to fade, Crowder looks like a guy worth holding onto right now. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:57 pm
  • Cleanthony Early scores 18 off Knicks bench
    Cleanthony Early returned from an ankle injury and had a team-high 18 points, four rebounds, a steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-12 shooting in 25 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Knicks are painful, in all aspects - to watch, to use in fantasy, to watch some more - and Early has really struggled on the season. The points were nice, but he never seems to shoot 50 percent and he's just as likely to give you a three-point game as he is to come through like he did tonight. Then again, maybe the Knicks are ready to wind him up and turn him loose, so it's also possible this was a sign of things to come. Keep a close eye on him on Friday night, and pounce if he does anything. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:04 pm
  • Gerald Henderson scores 23 in loss
    Gerald Henderson hit 10-of-19 shots for 23 points, one rebound, two assists and two steals in Wednesday's loss.

    Advice: He's scored in double figures in five straight games and his 23 points were the most he's scored since Feb. 5, when he had 27. He's scoring again, but not doing a lot else right now to help his owners on most nights. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:24 pm
  • Cleanthony Early (ankle) will return vs. LAC
    Cleanthony Early (ankle) will play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has a good chance for minutes tonight with the Knicks missing a few guys on the wing. Early has been awful this season, making 33.8 percent from the field in his 31 games. We'll let you know if he does anything noteworthy tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:24 pm
  • Rodney Hood (illness) will not play Wednesday
    Rodney Hood (illness) will not play vs. the Blazers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hood was really starting to come on strong for the Jazz, but the rookie has had a tough time staying on the floor this season. Gordon Hayward (shoulder) is doubtful Wednesday, meaning Joe Ingles and Elijah Millsap should see plenty of minutes vs. the Blazers, though neither player is an appealing option in most leagues. Consider Hood day-to-day moving forward. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: "No doubt," Barton said. "I think we can build something here. We have a lot of good talent, a good organization, coaching staff is good. I can see us building and having a strong future here. We can grow together." The Nuggets can extend Barton a qualifying offer in the summer that estimates to be around $1.1 million, and if he accepts it would make him a restricted free agent. Barton has played well in Denver and is averaging 10.2 points, 4.6 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.8 steals and 1.0 3-pointer in just over 26 minutes per game over his last five, making him a viable asset in deeper leagues.

  • Ryan Kelly scores 16 points in start at PF
    Ryan Kelly played 29 minutes in a start at PF on Tuesday, finishing with 16 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

    Advice: He didn't turn the ball over and this was one of his better outings of the season. Lakers coach Paul Pressey, filling in for Byron Scott, once again spread minutes thin and evenly throughout his first and second units, and Kelly's starting job isn't likely to result in reliable fantasy production. We'll let you know if he plays well enough to warrant your attention. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 8:34 pm
  • Richard Jefferson leaves w/ stiff lower back
    Richard Jefferson will not return to Tuesday's game due to back spasms and lower back stiffness.

    Advice: The 34-year-old may need a few days to let his back fully recover, so we're considering him questionable to play vs. the Spurs on Friday. If he can't suit up, expect Al-Farouq Aminu to pick up the most extra minutes, with some help from Charlie Villanueva. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:11 pm
  • Ryan Kelly starts vs OKC, Jordan Hill benched
    Ryan Kelly will start vs. the Thunder on Tuesday, shifting Jordan Hill to the bench.

    Advice: It's hard to get excited about Kelly's promotion given his performance in 20 previous starts this season -- he averaged a paltry 5.9 points on 28.2 percent shooting, with 0.9 threes, 3.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 0.6 steals. He should be left on the waiver wire in nearly all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:57 pm
  • Rodney Hood (illness) doubtful for Wednesday
    Rodney Hood (gastrointestinal distress) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Trail Blazers.

    Advice: With both Hood and Gordon Hayward (shoulder) being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game, the Jazz are going to be very thin on the wings. Joe Ingles and Elijah Millsap will likely see a healthy heaping of minutes if Hood and Hayward are indeed unavailable, while Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert seeing some increased opportunity on offense. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Cleanthony Early (ankle) probable Wednesday
    Cleanthony Early (ankle) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

    Advice: Early hasn't been able to do much this season, even when given big minutes, so he's not someone that should be added in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 1:52 pm
  • Rodney Hood misses Tuesday practice
    Rodney Hood (gastrointestinal distress) missed Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Hood left Monday's game against Minnesota with a stomach problem and was unable to practice on Tuesday, so we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers. With Gordon Hayward (shoulder) already questionable for Wedesday, Joe Ingles would be in for a minutes boost if Hood is unable to suit up, while Elijah Millsap would also see some extra minutes.

  • Budinger hits four more threes on Monday
    Chase Budinger hit a season-high four treys in Monday's overtime win over the Jazz, finishing with 15 points on 4-of-13 shooting, three rebounds, five assists and two steals in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Budinger has probably earned solid playing time going forward, but as guys return his touches are going to be a question mark. It's entirely possible he dodges all of that and provides serviceable value for owners hunting threes, but he comes with a decent amount of risk. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 9:07 pm
  • Rodney Hood (illness) out for game on Monday
    Rodney Hood (gastrointestinal distress) will not return on Monday.

    Advice: He was in the tunnel and was in a lot of discomfort before going back to the locker room. For what it's worth, Hood had some issues at college last year with his stomach and during an NBA tryout, so this has been a trend for him in a little over a year. Joe Ingles should get more chances to score while Elijah Millsap will also step up. Hood finished with eight points, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com

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

    Advice: Bogdanovic had been a nice little run but this shows how shaky his value can be. He's a deep league play at best until he shows us a little bit more. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 7:33 pm
  • Hollins continues praise for Bojan Bogdanovic
    Coach Lionel Hollins said he hasn't been playing Deron Williams and Jarrett Jack together because of how well Bojan Bogdanovic is playing right now.

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

  • Cleanthony Early will not play vs. Memphis
    Cleanthony Early (ankle) will not play against the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: His ankle injury isn't getting much better and there's no word of him practicing yet. Early can be dropped in just about all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 2:49 pm
  • Ryan Kelly may start next to Tarik Black
    Ryan Kelly could start next to Tarik Black against the Thunder on Tuesday.

    Advice: That means Jordan Hill will move to the bench. This is a surprising move because the Lakers played well on Sunday and pulled out a win. Kelly is still not going to be worth owning even with the starting nod. Hill's fantasy value shouldn't fall too much with his bench role. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 12:34 pm
  • Marcus Morris flirts with a triple-double
    Marcus Morris flirted with a triple-double during Sunday's 98-92 win over the Mavericks, scoring 11 points with 11 boards, seven assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Brandon Knight (ankle) has a chance to return from injury on Wednesday vs. the Kings, but Morris has shown what he can do with extended minutes. Morris has posted averages of 13.6 points, 8.8 boards, 3.8 assists and 1.6 3-pointers over his last five games, and he certainly gave head coach Jeff Hornacek something to think about after this performance. Even though Knight's return would likely see Morris shift to the bench, he is simply too hot to let go of right now. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 8:47 pm
  • Jae Crowder starts at point guard, scores 19
    Jae Crowder started at point guard in place of Marcus Smart (suspension) and he did not disappoint, scoring 19 points with seven boards, three assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in an overtime loss to the Pistons on Sunday.

    Advice: He was everywhere tonight and head coach Brad Stevens was hesitant to take him off the court as he logged 45 minutes. Crowder will return to the bench on Monday vs. the Nets when Smart comes back from his suspension, but his play won't go unnoticed. Crowder has now averaged 14.0 points, 6.8 boards, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals over his last five games, and he is worth a long look in most leagues with the Celtics set to play four games this coming week. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 6:49 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver fails to score in 25 minutes
    Anthony Tolliver failed to score in 25 minutes vs, the Celtics on Sunday, missing all seven of his attempts from the field.

    Advice: He did record three assists, two boards and one block, but it's tough to sugarcoat this performance. Tolliver was simply awful tonight, and the only good news is that he still saw 25 minutes of action. There is no telling when Greg Monroe (knee) will return, but Tolliver is still worth a look in deeper leagues for his 3-point shooting. Expect him to bounce back on Tuesday vs. the Raptors. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 6:36 pm
  • Will Barton chips in across the board Sunday
    Will Barton had 11 points, five rebounds, three assists and two steals off the bench vs. Orlando on Sunday.

    Advice: Randy Foye was out with a stomach illness, setting up Barton for a solid game but instead he played only 25 minutes, much of which came during garbage time. He has had a few offensive explosions since the All-Star break and does just enough to hold steady late-round value in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 5:59 pm
  • Quincy Pondexter starts, plays 38 minutes
    Quincy Pondexter played 38 minutes vs. the Clippers on Sunday, finishing with 12 points, four 3-pointers and three rebounds.

    Advice: He started the first half ahead of Eric Gordon but it was a temporary switch and Gordon will return to the starting five on Wednesday -- he was benched today because he was late to a team meeting. Q-Pon has averaged 30 minutes per game over the past month, but he's only worth using as a 3-point specialist in typical leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 3:24 pm
  • Cleanthony Early (ankle) out Sunday vs. TOR
    Cleanthony Early (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: Early has been sidelined since March 15, and with the fantasy playoffs in full swing, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 12:08 pm
  • Rodney Hood scores 19 points in loss Saturday
    Rodney Hood scored 19 points on 9-of-14 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Warriors, adding one board and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

    Advice: It was an encouraging game for the rookie, and the Jazz will simply be glad to see him out on the court after he struggled with plantar fasciitis in his foot for most of the season. Hood is still rather inconsistent and is coming off a two-point performance on Thursday, but he is certainly worth a look for owners in need of scoring and 3-pointers. It also helps that his competition for minutes consists of Elijah Millsap and Joe Ingles. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Morris scores 17 points with 10 boards
    Marcus Morris finally got it going against the Rockets on Saturday with 17 points, 10 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: This was the production we were expecting since the Brandon Knight (ankle) injury. Morris should continue to log minutes and get shots in the first team, so he's worth owning in standard leagues. Knight still hasn't practiced yet and could miss another game or two. Although, if Morris is still on the wire, most of his value is probably behind him. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 9:02 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver gets into foul trouble
    Anthony Tolliver didn't make any treys during a 107-91 win over the Bulls on Saturday, scoring four points with six boards, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes.

    Advice: He was in foul trouble, so he squandered a chance for more playing time with Shawne Williams (illness) and Greg Monroe (knee) out. Monroe is out for Sunday and could miss more time, so Tolliver is a sneaky player to own in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 7:59 pm
  • Bojan Bogdanovic scores 21, makes all 8 FGAs
    Bojan Bogdanovic stayed hot against the Pacers on Saturday, making all eight attempts from the field for 21 points with five rebounds and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes.

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

  • Pondexter scores 15 points with three treys
    Quincy Pondexter scored 15 points on 4-of-9 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes on Friday against the Warriors.

    Advice: Pondexter has been a late-round value the past two weeks and that's a high water mark for him. If the Pelicans continue to experience multiple injuries, he could be worth a look in 12-14 team leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jae Crowder starts the second half
    Jae Crowder started the second half for Tyler Zeller during a 101-89 loss to the Spurs on Friday with 14 points, six rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He was 5-of-14 from the field and was heavily involved in the offense. With Marcus Smart likely to be suspended, Crowder is a good bet to move into the starting lineup and see close to 36-38 minutes. If you're looking for a risk-reward guy on Sunday, give him a look. Rotoworld.com

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

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

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

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

  • Early (ankle) does not play on Friday
    Cleanthony Early (ankle) did not play on Friday against the Sixers.

    Advice: Early fits the profile as somebody that the Knicks would develop in this lost season but he just hasn't created any momentum. Owners can watch this action from the wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Hood misses all six from the field
    Rodney Hood missed all six shots from the field against the Lakers on Thursday with two points, one rebound, three assists and no turnovers in 22 minutes.

    Advice: The law of averages had its say and Hood was on the opposite end of the spectrum from his 9-of-11 from the field back on Monday. His minutes also came down from the 29-minute outing on Wednesday. Although, maybe Hood only making 31.4 percent from the field in his previous seven games with no days rest was a factor here. He could get hot again, but he's probably not going to be a fantasy savior. The rookie is not a must-own player if you're looking at a different guy to add. Rotoworld.com

  • Marcus Morris has an awful shooting game
    Marcus Morris made 1-of-11 from the field for two points with 13 rebounds, four assists and no turnovers in 40 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

    Advice: To make matters worse, Morris missed both attempts from the line to give him a true shooting percentage of 8.4. March has been a fiasco for his shooting, making just 33.3 percent from the field, which is even worse considering he's making 75.0 percent of his shots at the rim in that span. Awful shooting aside, Morris is still worth owning in standard leagues until Brandon Knight (ankle) gets back. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Chase Budinger plays 43 minutes in OT win
    Chase Budinger played 43 minutes in an overtime win over the Knicks on Thursday with 10 points, six rebounds, two assists, four steals and one turnover.

    Advice: With Adreian Payne making too many mistakes, Budinger stepped in as the stretch four. He played 36 minutes on Wednesday and there could be more minutes headed his way going forward. His value depends a lot on Justin Hamilton making his return from migraines. If you need treys in a deep league, give Budinger a look. Rotoworld.com

  • Cleanthony Early (ankle) will not play Thurs.
    Cleanthony Early (ankle) will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. the Timberwolves, as expected.

    Advice: There isn't a clear winner with Early sidelined. Lance Thomas and Travis Wear will have the opportunity for some extended minutes, but neither guy is doing enough statistically to matter in most leagues. Early hasn't produced enough for New York this season to warrant a stash, so he can remain on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Hood plays 29 minutes
    Rodney Hood played 29 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday with eight points, three rebounds, four assists and three turnovers.

    Advice: He was 4-of-9 from the field and cooled off from his red-hot run this March. Hood has been thriving on his shots off the dribble and the four dimes tonight are further proof of coach Quin Snyder trusting his rookie. He's worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Chase Budinger scores 19 in 36 minutes
    Chase Budinger hit 9-of-18 shots and a 3-pointer for 19 points, eight rebounds, three assists and a block in Wednesday's loss.

    Advice: Budinger has quietly scored 19, 18 and 10 points in each of his last three games, but has been helped by injuries to teammates. If he does it again on Thursday against the Knicks, pick him up. Rotoworld.com

  • Bojan Bogdanovic scores 12 on Wednesday
    Bojan Bogdanovic came off the bench for 12 points, two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers on 5-of-9 shooting in 36 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: He blew up for 21 points on Monday, so maybe he's getting ready to heat up. Just keep an eye on him. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Tolliver scores nine in 34 minutes
    Anthony Tolliver scored nine points with five rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

    Advice: This morning it seemed like Greg Monroe (knee) was going to be ready tonight, but now there's talk of him missing both games this weekend. Tolliver scored 15 points in 32 minutes on Tuesday and could score in the low teens against the Celtics and Bulls this weekend. Give him a look if you need some points, boards and treys.

  • Update: Elijah Millsap cleared to play
    Elijah Millsap (concussion) has been cleared to play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wow. With Andre Drummond being cleared to play on Monday following a Saturday concussion, Millsap becomes the second player in the past week to be cleared in less than two days following his Monday concussion. Still, Rodney Hood has been amazing and Millsap is not a lock for big minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Cleanthony Early (ankle) doubtful Thursday
    Cleanthony Early (ankle) is doubtful for Thursday's game vs. Minnesota.

    Advice: It's safe to say that Early has been a major disappointment for the Knicks this season, and his ankle has been giving him plenty of problems. Lance Thomas and Travis Wear should be able to see more minutes following this news, but neither player is an attractive option in most leagues. Leave Early on the wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Gerald Henderson chips in 16 points vs. Clips
    Gerald Henderson finished Tuesday's loss in L.A. with 16 points (5-of-13 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs), one rebound, four assists and two steals in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Monday's dud can be forgiven, as the entire Hornets team was limited in a blowout, and Henderson continues to log solid minutes despite the return of Kemba Walker. His usage rate may take a hit in the long run but he's been good enough to deserve some leeway from owners in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
