  • Nick Calathes returns from 20-game suspension
    Grizzlies PG Nick Calathes played eight minutes in his season debut on Sunday, having served his 20-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy.

    Advice: Calathes entered to an ovation from the home crowd in Memphis, but finished scoreless with just one rebound to his credit. He and Beno Udrih (11 points, five assists in 20 minutes) will compete for backup PG minutes behind Mike Conley, but right now Udrih is the guy to own in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Quincy Pondexter (illness) back in action Sun
    Quincy Pondexter (illness) returned to action on Sunday, scoring 11 points with one 3-pointer and two rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Q-Pon's minutes briefly surged with five Grizzlies ailing last week, but he's irrelevant in standard-sized fantasy leagues now that they're back at full strength. He and Vince Carter (two points in nine minutes) tend to trade off decent games, which makes them both unsavory fantasy options. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen (illness) plays well as starter
    Tony Allen (illness) returned to the Grizzlies starting lineup and had 12 points, five rebounds, one assist and one block in Sunday's 16-point win vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Allen is only 6'4" but his toughness and cerebral defense allow him to start at SF with Courtney Lee spreading the court at SG. This was his third double-digit scoring game of the season and he's shooting an abysmal 46.2 percent at the FT, while adding just 1.3 assists per game, so there are too many flaws in his game for reliable 10-team value.

  • Leandro Barbosa sprains knee, won't return
    Leandro Barbosa suffered a sprained right knee during Sunday's game, and he will not return.

    Advice: Barbosa didn't immediately leave the game, staying in to shoot free throws and play a few possessions, but he was ruled out upon further examination. Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala should get more playing time in his absence, but fantasy owners should consider him questionable to play Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Calathes' suspension over, activated Sun
    Nick Calathes' has served his 13-game suspension and will be available to play Sunday vs. the Clippers, sending Jordan Adams to the inactives list.

    Advice: Head coach David Joerger said that he'll be bringing Calathes back slowly, so there's not much upside here. He'll serve as a third-string point guard, playing behind Mike Conley and Beno Udrih, so he can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen (illness) will start on Sunday
    Tony Allen (illness) will return to the starting lineup on Sunday, sending Tayshaun Prince to the bench.

    Advice: Allen can be viewed as a steals-specialist as he doesn't contribute much else to the stat sheet, but he does have a favorable matchup today against the Clippers. Get him active if you've got him. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (wrist) questionable for Mon.
    Rodney Stuckey (sprained left wrist) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. Dallas.

    Advice: The injury is to his non-shooting hand, so there's the positive in this situation. Stuckey just hasn't been able to stay healthy this season, and is currently averaging just 10.0 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game on 38.2 percent shooting from the field. Stuckey will have plenty of opportunity when he's finally able to play, but right now, he doesn't look to be worth owning in standard leagues. If he's unable to go, Donald Sloan will continue to get all the minutes he can handle. Rotoworld.com

  • Luigi Datome (ankle) questionable for Tuesday
    Luigi Datome (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Datome currently is not a rotation player for the Pistons, and he can remain on the waiver wire in all leagues until he proves otherwise. Rotoworld.com

  • Celtics assign James Young to D-League
    The Celtics have re-assigned rookie James Young to their D-League affiliate.

    Advice: Young will get some playing time with the Red Claws that he wouldn't get in Boston, but he'll likely rejoin the Celtics in a matter of days. Rotoworld.com

  • Xavier Henry struggles to regain explosion
    Lakers coach Byron Scott isn't sure that Xavier Henry will regain his former explosive athleticism following right knee surgery.

    Advice: "I loved his athleticism and the fact that he could attack the basket," Scott said. "His relentlessness to attack the basket contributed to the injuries as well." Henry said that he can already move "better and quicker" at this stage in his recovery, and he doesn't plan to change his game, but fantasy owners can watch his development from afar -- he's averaging under 10 minutes per game and recently had a stint in the D-League.

  • Jimmer Fredette back in Pellies' rotation
    Jimmer Fredette played for the first time in four games on Saturday, going scoreless with one rebound, one assist and one steal in eight minutes.

    Advice: He returned to the bench rotation after Eric Gordon separated his shoulder, which moved Austin Rivers into the starting SG spot. Gordon is likely to miss significant time and Rivers is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues, but we'll need to see more from Fredette to put him on the radar. Rotoworld.com

  • Lou Williams earns praise for his defense
    Lou Williams poured in a career-high 36 points vs. the Cavaliers on Saturday, but coach Dwane Casey singled out his defense for praise.

    Advice: "Most of all, I'm impressed with Lou's defense," Casey said. "He had a reputation of being a scorer but now he's doing a much better job defensively for us, which allows him to stay in and guard guys like [Dion] Waiters and [Kyrie] Irving and people like that." Anything that keeps Williams on the court is terrific news for fantasy owners -- he's currently averaging 13.4 points, 1.5 threes and 1.3 steals in just 19 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 6:59 am
  • Otto Porter downplays hamstring injury
    Otto Porter said that his hamstring injury is minor and may be the result of dehydration and fatigue, but he remains questionable to practice on Monday.

    Advice: "Just a lot of soreness [on Saturday]," said Porter. "I didn’t want to make it into a big injury ... I’ve been through injuries before so I knew from the start it wasn’t nothing serious." Paul Pierce and Rasual Butler both picked up more minutes in Porter's absence but it sounds like he may return to the lineup for Tuesday's home game. Rotoworld.com

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

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

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

    Advice: He did not score and had just three rebounds, three assists and one steal. Belinelli is not 100 percent and the Spurs might have started him just to mix it up. He's not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Sergey Karasev returned to action on Saturday November 22. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:51 pm
  • K.J. McDaniels has a so-so game
    K.J. McDaniels played 20 minutes against the Knicks during a 91-83 loss on Saturday, scoring eight points with one steal, two 3-pointers and two turnovers.

    Advice: He committed three fouls and it's obvious he's trying to be a hero out there with his minutes. McDaniels is arguably the most talented perimeter player on the 76ers, but his coach won't play him right now. He's a solid stash candidate, but his owners shouldn't consider him a must-own guy at all. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Lou Williams drops career-high 36 vs. Cavs
    Lou Williams was unstoppable vs. the Cavs on Saturday, setting a new career-high with 36 points (9-of-19 FGs, 15-of-15 FTs) on Saturday, adding three 3-pointers, four rebounds and three steals in just 29 minutes.

    Advice: He made 9-of-9 free throws in his first nine minutes alone, and this is an extreme example of the instant offense that Toronto was hoping he'd provide when they traded for him this summer. His 18-20 minute bench role isn't well-suited to sustainable fantasy value, unfortunately, and he's likely to remain an unsteady option in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:49 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey exits w/ sprained left wrist
    Rodney Stuckey sprained his left wrist after tripping over a photographer on Saturday, and he will not return.

    Advice: Stuckey is already struggling with his conditioning after missing time due to a foot injury, and we can only hope that this injury doesn't cost him any more time. X-rays were negative and we're considering him questionable for Monday's road game in Dallas -- with C.J. Watson (foot) and George Hill (ankle) already ruled out, Donald Sloan may need to once again log 40+ minutes if Stuckey doesn't suit up. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Belinelli (groin) starts, Green benched
    Marco Belinelli (groin) will make a surprise start for the Spurs on Saturday, sending Danny Green to the bench.

    Advice: Belinelli wasn't even certain to play and this start comes out of nowhere, especially since Green has been playing very well lately and San Antonio doesn't have a healthy backup PG. This will likely be a one-game move from Gregg Popovich, so don't overreact to the unusual lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 5:41 pm
  • Otto Porter will not play on Saturday night
    Otto Porter will not play on Saturday night due to a left hamstring tightness.

    Advice: He actually had some major hamstring issues in 2013 summer league, but that was to his right hamstring. Paul Pierce will play a little more while the Wizards could also use Bradley Beal at small forward off the bench as well. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Belinelli will play vs. Nets on Sat.
    Marco Belinelli (groin) will play against the Nets on Saturday.

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

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

    Advice: He only played 10 minutes in his return on Friday and the Spurs have never been shy about resting players in a back-to-back set, so Belinelli could sit. Danny Green has been on fire lately and should be considered as a must-start guy in standard leagues tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 11:38 am
  • Marco Belinelli plays 10 minutes
    Marco Belinelli returned to the lineup on Friday, playing 10 minutes with five points and two boards.

    Advice: He has been out for over two weeks and the Spurs will likely ease him back in the lineup considering he's dealt with groin issues before. Belinelli isn't going to have much in most leagues while the wings and guards are healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:43 pm
  • K.J. McDaniels scores career-high 17 points
    K.J. McDaniels scored a career-high 17 points against the Suns during an ugly 122-96 loss on Friday to go with three rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer on 5-of-12 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line in 28 minutes.

    Advice: His mom has yet to tweet about it as of the time this blurb was written. McDaniels has done quite a bit in the stat sheet with his 1.4 blocks and 1.1 triples in just 22.0 minutes on the season and he's likely going to get out there for more playing time. He's still more of a stash player right now. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 6:40 pm
  • Tony Allen (illness) out Friday vs. BOS
    Tony Allen (illness) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: With Allen out, Courtney Lee is going to get all the minutes he can handle. Vince Carter could also see some extended minutes off the bench, but Lee offers the most upside. Allen went through parts of shootaround today, so he shouldn't be out much longer, and we'll consider him questionable Sunday's game vs. the Clippers. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 4:57 pm
  • Quincy Pondexter won't play on Friday
    Quincy Pondexter (illness) will not play on Friday against the Celtics.

    Advice: He has the nasty stomach bug now and could miss additional time because he doesn't get much playing time to begin with. Pondexter is only worth owning in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 4:55 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey working on his conditioning
    Rodney Stuckey is working on getting his conditioning back after spending two weeks on the sidelines.

    Advice: "I only played 26 minutes, but it felt like I played 35," Stuckey said after Wednesday's win over the Hornets. "It’s all about getting my legs back underneath me and getting my wind back up. Here within the next week or so I should be back to normal." Stuckey is going to be eased back into the rotation, but with George Hill (knee) and C.J. Watson (foot) out he'll have plenty of opportunity. However, he really doesn't do much aside from score, so he's not necessarily a must-own guy in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Nets looking to deal Karasev?
    The Nets could deal Sergey Karasev to the 76ers.

    Advice: He's not playing for the Nets and there's a decent chance he'll get playing time with the 76ers. Karasev is still not very talented, so he would only be a speculative add in a ridiculously deep league. The Nets are hoping to land a trade exception in the deal. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 1:22 pm
  • Quincy Pondexter (illness) doubtful for Fri.
    Quincy Pondexter (illness) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Courtney Lee said that Pondexter is dealing with the worst part of the illness today, so it would be a bit shocking if he were to suit up. If Pondexter sits, there will be more minutes to go around for Vince Carter and Courtney Lee. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:50 am
  • Tony Allen (illness) questionable for Friday
    Tony Allen (illness) left Friday morning's shootaround early, and remains questionable to suit up vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: If Allen is unable to go Vince Carter would likely see an increase in his minutes. Carter was able to play 27 minutes off the bench during his last outing, but was only managed seven points, three assists, and one three-pointer. However, he does have a favorable matchup today vs. the Celtics, so he may be worth the risk in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 9:48 am
  • Marco Belinelli (groin) upgraded to probable
    Marco Belinelli (groin) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

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

    Advice: He looks like he's a little behind schedule on the illness, so Pondexter might have a smaller chance to play. He's not a fantasy option as long as Courtney Lee and Tony Allen are out there. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:34 pm
  • Tony Allen is questionable for Friday
    Tony Allen (illness) is questionable to face the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: The Grizzlies were missing half of their team on Wednesday, but they look like they could play on Friday because they waived their emergency guys. Allen owners will want to check back tomorrow evening. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 4:32 pm
  • Marco Belinelli (groin) questionable for Fri.
    Marco Belinelli (groin) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Belinelli is averaging just 8.3 points and 1.7 three-pointers this season, so his return to the court shouldn't matter for owners in standard leagues. Deep league owners will want to check back closer to Friday's tip for an official update on his status. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 2:16 pm
  • K.J. McDaniels frustrated by lack of PT
    K.J. McDaniels said he was frustrated that his minutes were limited while he was playing well on Wednesday.

    Advice: McDaniels didn't miss a shot during Wednesday's loss, scoring eight points (two 3-pointers) to go with two rebounds and a block, but coach Brett Brown limited him to just 11 minutes of action. Brown explained that the 76ers have a "logjam at the big wing position," which is an interesting statement considering McDaniels' competition goes by the names of Hollis Thompson, Luc Mbah a Moute, and Robert Covington. McDaniels is clearly the most talented player out of the group, but the 76ers organization is not interested in putting talented players on the floor if it gives the team a chance to win. Still, the Sixers are likely eventually going to give McDaniels minutes in order to give him a chance to develop, and he can be viewed as a stash candidate for owners in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 11:38 am
  • Quincy Pondexter struggles in start for MEM
    Quincy Pondexter started for the flu-depleted Grizzlies on Wednesday and had just four points and one rebound on 2-of-6 shooting in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Courtney Lee, Tony Allen and a few others were out with the illness tonight, so QP drew the start. He looked like a sneaky daily play, but that plan didn't work out as planned. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:24 pm
  • K.J. McDaniels quiet again in loss
    K.J. McDaniels played just 11 minutes on Wednesday, despite hitting 3-of-3 shots and both of his 3-point attempts, and finished with eight points, two rebounds and a block.

    Advice: He's blocking shots and playing pretty well, but just can't get minutes from his coach. We've been preaching patience with the rookie, but it has to be tough holding him in leagues where you need him to produce. He was seeing minutes in the mid-20s prior to low usage in two of his last three, so if you can continue to hold on, do it. But if you feel the need to drop him for someone reliable and producing right now, that option has to be considered. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:07 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey take a lot of shots in return
    Rodney Stuckey returned to the lineup on Wednesday against the Hornets, making 5-of-13 from the field for 11 points with two rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He played mostly shooting guard and continues to turn in a high usage rate. Stuckey logged only 13.3 minutes per game, but now he's likely going to stay in the mid-20 range. Considering he doesn't usually shoot the ball well and doesn't do much outside of scoring, he's not a great player to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Quincy Pondexter in line for big minutes Wed.
    Quincy Pondexter should play heavy minutes for the Grizzlies on Wednesday, as they're down to only nine healthy players.

    Advice: Five guys are out with the flu including Courtney Lee and Tony Allen, which opens up a major opportunity for Q-Pon on the wings. He's well worth considering as a fill-in option in daily leagues, but doesn't have enough long-term value to bother with anywhere else. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:39 pm
  • Tony Allen will not play on Wednesday
    Tony Allen (illness) will not play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Grizzlies are in deep trouble with half of their rotation out tonight. Tayshaun Prince, Quincy Pondexter, Vince Carter and Jordan Adams will soak up as many minutes as they can. Allen should be considered questionable for Friday against the Celtics. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 3:33 pm
  • Marco Belinelli (groin) still out on Wed.
    Marco Belinelli (groin) will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful and did not have much of a chance to play tonight. Beliinelli should be considered questionable to face the Wolves on Friday. Danny Green and Cory Joseph get some slight bumps in value tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:39 pm
  • Tony Allen (flu) questionable on Wednesday
    Tony Allen, Kosta Koufos, Courtney Lee, Jon Leuer, and Beno Udrih are all questionable to face the Raptors on Wednesday as they are all dealing with flu-like symptoms.

    Advice: This is a nightmare for the Grizzlies, as they could be incredibly shorthanded against Toronto if they have to sit out. If any of these players sit out, we may get an extended look at rookies Jordan Adams and Jarnell Stokes, while Vince Carter and Quincy Pondexter would likely benefit the most. Stay tuned.

  • Rodney Stuckey (foot) will play Wednesday
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) will play in Wednesday's game against Charlotte.

    Advice: This is excellent news for the Pacers as they have been ravaged by injuries all season long. It is unclear how many minutes Stuckey will see Wednesday, but he likely be eased into action. He will be worth a flier in deeper leagues while owners in standard leagues should keep a close eye on him. His return could spell trouble for the value of Donald Sloan and A.J. Price but that remains to be seen. Rotoworld.com

  • Marco Belinelli (groin) is doubtful Wednesday
    Marco Belinelli (groin) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game.

    Advice: The Italian is only an asset in deeper leagues for his 3-pointers, so owners in standard leagues can continue to ignore him. If Belinelli can't go, Danny Green and Kawhi Leonard will continue to absorb his minutes. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:05 am
  • Rodney Stuckey (foot) is probable Wednesday
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Owners in deep leagues should definitely consider taking a flier on him due to the lack of depth the Pacers have right now with George Hill(knee) and C.J. Watson (ankle) still recovering from injury. Stuckey can put up points in a hurry and though his minutes might be limited at first, he could play a huge role for the Pacers this season. If he does suit up, he will eat into the minutes of Donald Sloan while shattering the value of A.J. Price. Check back before tip-off for the latest updates. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey probable vs Hornets on Weds
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Advice: Stuckey has practiced for the last two days, so it's looking more and more likely that he'll suit up against the Hornets. The Pacers will likely keep his minutes in check on Wednesday, but his return to the lineup will cut into Donald Sloan and A.J. Price's fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

  • Pondexter posts nice line in blowout win
    Quincy Pondexter scored 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds and four assists over 30 minutes in Monday's blowout win.

    Advice: Pondexter has been in and out of the rotation and we need to see this many more times before we let him out of our doghouse. He and Kosta Koufos (three steals, three blocks, 10 points, six boards) obviously benefited from the garbage time tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 10:29 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey has a chance to play Wed.
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) has a chance to play on Wednesday against the Hornets.

    Advice: His minutes were held in check before suffering the injury earlier this month. Stuckey was very active while he was on the court, but it's still a little tough to get too excited about him as a fantasy asset. Most owners can take a wait-and-see approach. Rotoworld.com

  • James Young gets recalled from D-League
    Celtics recall F James Young from the D-League.

    Advice: The first-round pick has done absolutely nothing so far and has a long road ahead to crack on any kind of fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Calathes eligible to play Sunday, Nov 23
    Grizzlies guard Nick Calathes is scheduled to return from his season-opening suspension on Sunday, Nov. 23.

    Advice: Calathes was suspended for 20 games after testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs, causing him to miss the Grizzlies' final seven games of last year's playoffs. Memphis has been relying on Beno Udrih to support Mike Conley at PG, and it's unlikely Calathes will earn enough minutes to be worth plucking off the waiver wire in any format. Rotoworld.com
    Nov 16, 9:28 pm
  • James Young headed to the D-League
    James Young and Dwight Powell will head to the D-League.

    Advice: Young played four minutes on Wednesday in garbage time, but he's not in the rotation. He'll look to get his offensive game together in Maine with the Red Claws. Rotoworld.com
    Nov 15, 12:59 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey won't play on Sat.
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) will not play against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: He was listed as questionable earlier today, but getting ruled out before pre-game warmup isn't a good sign. Stuckey was limited before his recent injury, so he's likely going to have his minutes held in check for a week upon his return. A.J. Price will back up Donald Sloan. Rotoworld.com

  • Rodney Stuckey (foot) questionable Saturday
    Rodney Stuckey (foot) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game.

    Advice: He has been dealing with foot issues all season, so it would be nice to see him suit up in this one. The Pacers are desperate for depth in their backcourt with C.J. Watson (ankle), and George Hill (knee) still out, so Stuckey could see a lot of minutes if he is healthy. If he can't go, expect Donald Sloan to continue to carry the load for the Pacers.

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

    Advice: Brett Brown is just tightening the leash on his rookie. He's averaging a combined 3.4 steals, blocks and threes in just 23 mpg, and owners should do the opposite and give him a longer leash instead. Rotoworld.com
    Nov 14, 9:53 pm
  • Luigi Datome (hamstring) will be active Fri.
    Luigi Datome (hamstring) will be available to play Friday vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Datome is going to struggle to find minutes playing behind Josh Smith, Kyle Singler, and Caron Butler, so he's not a viable option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

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

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

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

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

  • Tony Allen goes for a goose egg on Thurs.
    Tony Allen did not score in 24 minutes against the Kings on Thursday with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover.

    Advice: He is not going to drop 20-point games with regularity, but the steals are going to be there for the Grind Father. Allen is a sneaky specialist in standard leagues, but he's obviously not a must-own player. Rotoworld.com

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

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

  • Luigi Datome (hamstring) returns to practice
    Luigi Datome (hamstring) returned to practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Datome hasn't yet suited up for a single game this season, but his return to practice means that he's taking a positive step in that direction. Still, he's currently behind Josh Smith, Kyle Singler, and Caron Butler on the depth chart, so he's not likely to hold any fantasy value upon his return. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Quincy Pondexter, Dave Joerger have meeting
    Quincy Pondexter and Grizzlies head coach Dave Joerger had a closed-door meeting before Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: The backup swingman played just two minutes during Tuesday's win over the Lakers and Joerger took some time to clear the air with Pondexter. "The message is, this is what I was thinking and this is what I’m thinking going forward," Joerger said. "It’s always about not letting little things become big things. When you don’t talk to guys, that’s the worst." Pondexter is stuck behind Courtney Lee on the Grizzlies' depth chart and shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters at this point. Rotoworld.com
