  • Chris Paul hits 12-of-18 shots for 34 points
    Chris Paul returned from a night of rest and hit 12-of-18 shots, four 3-pointers and 6-of-6 free throws on his way to 34 points, five rebounds, nine assists, four steals and a block in Wednesday's gritty win over the Suns.

    Advice: Both teams treated this as a real game, which was a nice change from some of the other games tonight. CP3 was fantastic, and if he could score like this on a more consistent basis, we'd be more likely to tell you to take him before guys like Stephen Curry and Russell Westbrook. Rotoworld.com

  • Goran Dragic quiet while Bledsoe goes off
    Goran Dragic was quiet on Wednesday, hitting just 2-of-8 shots for four points, two rebounds, four assists and two steals in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He missed all three of his 3-point attempts and what's more disturbing about his line is that Isaiah Thomas played just 17 minutes off the bench. Eric Bledsoe got hot and scored 27 points, and these three guards are going to cause a lot of headaches for their owners, as they'll likely take turns getting hot on any given night. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:39 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe lights it up for 27 in loss
    Eric Bledsoe hit 6-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 27 points, one rebound, two assists and two steals on Wednesday.

    Advice: He also hit 12-of-14 free throws, and looked fantastic tonight. However, Goran Dragic stunk, finishing with four points on 2-of-8 shooting, and Isaiah Thomas played just 17 minutes off the bench. This three-headed guard in Phoenix isn't going away any time soon, and while all three players are going to be worth owning, they're also going to cause a different hot hand from night-to-night. It was Bledsoe's turn in this one, while Thomas was hot coming in. Goran, you're up. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson returns from calf injury
    Rookie Jordan Clarkson returned from his calf injury and had six points, two rebounds and a steal in 15 minutes.

    Advice: He hit 3-of-5 shots and looked great at Summer League this year, but it's still doubtful he'll be worth owning in fantasy leagues this year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Jeremy Lin plays well...off bench again
    Jeremy Lin came off the bench again on Wednesday and had 13 points, three rebounds, five assists and a block on 5-of-9 shooting in 25 minutes.

    Advice: We still don't know if Lin or Ronnie Price will start on opening night, but we're still listing Lin at No. 1 on the depth chart. Even if he comes off the bench, he should get the majority of minutes and is still the guy you'll want to target on draft night. We're hoping he's coming off the bench as a precaution for his tender ankle, but it sounds like Byron Scott is considering using Lin with the reserves. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Ronnie Price quiet in another start
    Ronnie Price got another start on Wednesday, finishing with eight points, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 3-of-7 shooting.

    Advice: Jeremy Lin came off the bench again and a position battle appears to be underway. But once Lin is completely over his ankle injury and the regular season starts, we still expect Lin to get the majority of minutes at PG - assuming Steve Nash is in street clothes. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Tony Parker scores 17 in return
    Tony Parker returned from a rest on Wednesday and had 17 points, five rebounds and seven assists on 7-of-13 shooting.

    Advice: Parker can be a fun player to own, but has had some injury woes over the last few seasons. He's also not a great free throw shooter, and doesn't hit many 3-pointers. But when his game is on and he's aggressive, he puts up quality point guard numbers. Target him when you need a point guard and the studs are gone. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:48 pm
  • Kendall Marshall gets the night off
    Kendall Marshall was given the night off during Wednesday's 110-91 loss to the Wolves.

    Advice: It's still not clear where he'll get his minutes, but he certainly seems like he'll be in the rotation. Marshall can't make free throws and is going to have a tough time putting up value in standard leagues. Of course, he still has a chance to start, so he's on the radar. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:18 pm
  • Nate Wolters comes on late vs. Wolves
    Nate Wolters came on late in Wednesday's loss to the Wolves, making 6-of-8 from the field for 14 points with one assist and one turnover in 16 minutes.

    Advice: Kendall Marshall had the night off tonight and Wolters is probably still behind him for point guard minutes. Fantasy owners can ignore him in most cases. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:16 pm
  • Brandon Knight misses all eight shots
    Brandon Knight missed all eight shots from the field against the Wolves on Wednesday with one points, five rebounds, six assists and one block in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He turned it over four times and was torched by Ricky Rubio. Knight returned from a groin injury and he should be considered as the favorite as the starter at point guard. He's more of a lower-upside player to grab around pick 100. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 8:01 pm
  • Shane Larkin starts, scores five in win
    Shane Larkin started at point guard against the Wizards on Wednesday, posting a line of five points, four boards, four assists and two turnovers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: John Wall made him look pretty bad and Larkin's lack of size was a factor tonight. Still, coach Derek Fisher likes his speed and ability to penetrate, so he should be in the rotation. Unless Jose Calderon (calf) misses time, Larkin won't be worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:31 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson (calf) will return on Wed.
    Jordan Clarkson (calf) will return to the lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's likely going to play more minutes at shooting guard tonight, but he made it clear he's capable of being a combo guard. Clarkson has been one of the most impressive second-round picks of the 2014 draft and could have an impact with a couple injuries to the backcourt. He's only on the fantasy map in extremely deep leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 4:56 pm
  • Brandon Knight, Ersan Ilyasova available Wed.
    Brandon Knight (groin) and Ersan Ilyasova (knee) are both available to play against the Wolves on Wednesday.

    Advice: He missed over one week with his groin injury and it's unclear if he'll be limited tonight. Nobody stepped up while Knight was on the shelf, so he is expected to start at point guard. Fantasy owners can target him in the later rounds of drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:22 pm
  • Ty Lawson (hamstring) misses practice
    Ty Lawson (hamstring) missed practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: There's a good chance he's not going to play again in the preseason, but he is closer to probable for the opener next week. Lawson's injuries are starting to pile up and he'll be a risky player to own. Although, he could have a huge season now that he has some help. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:14 pm
  • Jose Calderon (calf) won't play on Wednesday
    Jose Calderon (right calf) will not play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Derek Fisher said he hopes to have Calderon out there on Friday and his calf strain is not considered serious. He's dealt with a slew of muscle pulls in his leg, so this injury shouldn't be completely dismissed. Still, he's a low-end No. 2 fantasy point guard. Shane Larkin will start and look to make an impact tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 2:52 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson (calf) remains day-to-day
    Jordan Clarkson (calf) remains day-to-day after sitting out Tuesday's loss to Phoenix.

    Advice: The rookie isn't a particularly appealing fantasy option, but there should be some minutes available to him in L.A.'s backcourt. He'll look to carve out a niche during L.A.'s final two exhibitions on Wednesday and Friday. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 10:31 am
  • Spurs championship favorites in GM survey
    The Spurs were overwhelmingly favored to repeat as NBA champions in a recent survey of the league's GMs, with Gregg Popovich earning 92.9 percent of votes for 'Best Coach.'

    Advice: Joakim Noah earned the nod for 'Best Defensive Player,' Jabari Parker was declared the rookie who will impress the most in five years, and Tyson Chandler's trade to Dallas was voted the 'Most Underrated Acquisition' of the summer. You can peruse the full results by clicking on the link below. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:58 am
  • George Hill (knee) iffy for Thursday
    George Hill is listed as questionable for Thursday's game after suffering a left knee contusion on Tuesday night.

    Advice: "It swelled up pretty good so we’ll see how he is tomorrow and take it day to day," coach Frank Vogel said after Tuesday's game. Hill should be ready to go for the start of the regular season, and we're expecting him to be considerably better this season than last. Donald Sloan is pushing C.J. Watson for back up duties, but Hill is the guy you want to own. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:41 pm
  • Ronnie Price hands out 10 assists as starter
    Ronnie Price had seven points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in another start at PG on Tuesday, earning praise from coach Byron Scott before the game.

    Advice: There's actually a chance that Price could start ahead of Jeremy Lin on opening night, but we'll believe it when we see it. With Steve Nash is already suffering a recurrence of nerve-related pain, however, Price is creeping onto the fantasy radar as the Lakers' presumptive backup PG. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:02 pm
  • Jeremy Lin has 15 pts w/ five dimes off bench
    Jeremy Lin returned from two sprained ankles on Tuesday, notching 15 points (including 8-of-10 FTs), four rebounds, five dimes and two steals off the Lakers' bench.

    Advice: Ronnie Price started at PG and coach Byron Scott said he likes how Lin has played with the second unit. Lin was returning from injury and we still expect him to get the nod on opening night. He'll hold solid value even if he does begin the season the focal point of the second unit's offense, and the return of Nick Young could also bump him back into the starting five. If you drafted Lin, or plan to, there's no need to panic. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:57 pm
  • Nate Robinson (ACL) still on 15-minute limit
    Nate Robinson started at PG in place of Ty Lawson (hamstring) on Tuesday, but he finished with just four points and two assists in nine minutes.

    Advice: Denver's medical staff had Nate on a 15-minute limit, which should slowly increase during the first few weeks of the regular season. The 30-year-old is coming back from ACL surgery, and his backup role all but guarantees he won't help fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 9:28 pm
  • George Hill leaves with knee contusion
    George Hill suffered a knee contusion on Tuesday and will not return to the game.

    Advice: If you're going to have a knee injury, a contusion is the way to go. He's day-to-day and finishes with 14 points, five rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer. He's looking for a bounce-back season as the Pacers' starting point guard, and he's looked good in the preseason. Consider him day-to-day. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:49 pm
  • Report: Ronnie Price to start at PG Tuesday
    Despite an earlier report that Jeremy Lin would start at point guard for the Lakers on Tuesday, Mark Medina is reporting that Ronnie Price will get the call.

    Advice: Lin is still expected to play and will come off the bench after missing three straight game with a sprained ankle. Either way, Lin should be a nice, cheap source of dimes and point guard minutes this season. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 5:25 pm
  • Jeremy Lin not starting on Tuesday
    Jeremy Lin, who has missed three straight games with a sprained ankle, said he will start on Tuesday, but it's not going to happen.

    Advice: Ronnie Price will start in his place, but Lin is expected to return from a three-game absence with a sprained ankle off the bench. The Lakers are running very thin at point guard and if Lin can stay healthy this season, he's going to get a ton of minutes and production. He looks like an enticing sleeper pick once the big names are gone. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 5:01 pm
  • Ty Lawson could play in Friday finale
    Ty Lawson (hamstring) could play in Friday's preseason finale against the Warriors.

    Advice: This is good news, as it means he's close to being ready. He is hoping to play in order to keep his conditioning intact, but even if he doesn't play, all signs are him being ready for opening night. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:48 pm
  • Nate Robinson starts again for Ty Lawson
    Nate Robinson will start at PG for the Nuggets on Tuesday, in place of injured Ty Lawson (hamstring).

    Advice: Robinson appears to be fully recovered from his knee surgery, while JaVale McGee is a game-time decision as he makes his way back from a leg injury. Along with Robinson, Arron Afflalo, Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried and Timofey Mozgov. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 4:42 pm
  • Jeremy Lin (ankles) ready to go vs. Phoenix
    Jeremy Lin (sprained ankles) will return to action during Tuesday's exhibition vs. the visiting Suns.

    Advice: "Ankles are finally feeling better," Lin wrote. "Excited to get back on the court tonight!" Steve Nash's ongoing sciatica pain has him questionable for the start of the regular season, and the starting PG job should belong to Lin all season regardless of Nash's health. He has enough statistical versatility to return mid-round value, and his late-round ADP makes him a solid value in most fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 2:54 pm
  • Ty Lawson (hamstring) ruled out vs. Blazers
    Ty Lawson (hamstring) will not play vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

    Advice: He left Saturday's game with "tightness" in his hamstring and this doesn't appear to be a serious injury. Nevertheless, mounting health concerns are enough to knock Lawson down a peg in fantasy drafts. A serious ankle injury suffered last May prevented him from running until July and it caused the Nuggets "some concern" as recently as mid-October. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 11:43 am
  • Jose Calderon hopes to play on Wednesday
    Jose Calderon (calf) said his injury is nothing to worry about and that he hopes to play in Wednesday's exhibition game against the Wizards.

    Advice: Calderon left Monday's exhibition against the Bucks with a strained calf, but this doesn't sound like anything fantasy owners should be worried about. While the 33-year-old isn't the most exciting fantasy option, he's a solid late-round selection considering starting point guards don't grow on trees. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 10:15 am
  • Nate Wolters (ankle) returns to action
    Nate Wolters (ankle) returned to action on Monday against the Knicks, scoring 13 points on 5-of-5 shooting with two rebounds, four assists and one three in 22 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Wolters was a pleasant surprise last season but he's vying for minutes in an increasingly crowded group and he has no fantasy value until that all shakes out. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:44 pm
  • Marshall starts, Bucks roll w/ random lineup
    Kendall Marshall started at point guard in Monday's exhibition win over the Knicks, scoring six points on 2-of-2 shooting with zero rebounds and five assists in 20 minutes.

    Advice: Giannis Antetokounmpo started at shooting guard and went for 14 and seven with an 8-of-9 mark from the foul line. Khris Middleton scored 11 points in 14 minutes in a start at small forward, Jabari Parker went for 13 and six in 26 minutes, and John Henson double-doubled with 11 points and 10 boards in 27 minutes. With strong bench performances against a bad Knicks team tonight, we are no closer to clarity about the rotation than we were to start the night. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:29 pm
  • Calderon leaves game with strained right calf
    Jose Calderon left Monday's exhibition with a strained right calf and did not return.

    Advice: Fisher said that injury is not serious and this will be one of many updates like this tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 5:05 pm
  • Ty Lawson (hamstring) not likely for Tuesday
    Ty Lawson (hamstring) is not expected to suit up for Tuesday's preseason game vs. Portland.

    Advice: The injury is not considered serious, and the team is likely just being cautious with their star point guard. Lawson averaged 17.6 points, 8.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 1.2 three-pointers, 1.6 steals, and 3.2 turnovers with the Nuggets last season, but there is some concern that he is an injury risk as he was only able to suit up for 62 games. Lawson is a bit of a risk/reward pick this season, and news of this hamstring injury, regardless of its seriousness, could see him fall down a bit on owners’ draft boards. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 1:04 pm
  • Brandon Knight and Zaza Pachulia out on Monday
    Brandon Knight (groin) and Zaza Pachulia (hamstring) will not play against the Knicks on Monday.

    Advice: Knight has been out for over a week now with his strained right groin, but there's still hope for him to play in the season opener. Kendall Marshall hasn't played well sans Knight and is shooting just 4-of-15 in his last three games, so Knight still looks like the favorite to start at point guard. Knight is only a late-round target due to a lower upside. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 8:59 am
  • Ronnie Price a lock to make the team
    Ronnie Price is a lock to make the Lakers, according to Eric Pincus of the L.A. Times

    Advice: He's playing on a non-guaranteed deal, but has been terrific in camp with Steve Nash (back) and Jeremy Lin (ankle) out. This is bad news for rookie Jordan Clarkson's fantasy value in extremely deep leagues and Price has very little value, as well. Rotoworld.com
    Monday, 6:14 am
  • Ronnie Price gets 10 assists in 38 minutes
    With Steve Nash (nerve damage) and Jeremy Lin (ankle) unavailable for Sunday's exhibition, Lakers' PG Ronnie Price delivered 10 assists in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Price finished with six points, two rebounds, 10 dimes, four steals, one block and three turnovers against an inexperienced Jazz backcourt. The absence of rookie G Jordan Clarkson (calf) is yet another reason for Price's increased activity, and despite tonight's solid line he's not an option in average fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 9:19 pm
  • Jeremy Lin sits out again w/ sprained ankle
    Jeremy Lin (ankle) will sit out Sunday's exhibition, as expected, allowing A.J. Price to start at PG.

    Advice: Lin is likely to start at PG even if Steve Nash's nerve damage subsides prior to opening night, which seems very doubtful. He averaged 15.6 points, 1.4 threes, 3.3 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.2 steals on a 36-minute-per-game basis with Houston last year, which should set fantasy owners' expectations for 2014-15. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 4:59 pm
  • Jeremy Lin's end in HOU not how he envisioned
    Jeremy Lin's exit from Houston was not how he envisioned it, but he's not bitter towards the franchise that traded him for close to nothing.

    Advice: "When I first got [to Houston], I was supposed to be the guy and they were supposed to kind of hand the torch to me," said Lin. "And I ended up getting traded away basically for nothing. Actually, they had to give up a draft pick to convince someone else to take me. Pretty much given away for nothing. Definitely not how I envisioned it." Jeremy Lin is now in a much better situation in LA, and with Steve Nash unable to stay healthy, Lin will see heavy minutes in the Lakers' rotation. He makes for an excellent late-round selection with plenty of upside. Rotoworld.com
    Sunday, 7:28 am
  • Ty Lawson (hamstring) can't finish Sat. game
    Ty Lawson could not finish Saturday's game due to a tight hamstring.

    Advice: Uh oh. It doesn't sound serious and at least it's not to his ankle, but any Lawson injury will trigger the alarm bells. He did have a hamstring injury last season, so this is not something to ignore. He's probably not worth drafting in the top 30 anymore. And if he's going to miss time, Randy Foye will suddenly become quite relevant in fantasy. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 10:03 pm
  • George Hill flirts with a triple-double Sat.
    George Hill filled up the stat sheet against the Mavs on Saturday with 10 points, nine rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers on 3-of-11 from the field.

    Advice: If David West (ankle) misses time, Hill is going to be a huge part of the offense. He was more of an off-the-ball guy last season, but that'll change. The former Spur will always be known for being dealt for Kawhi Leonard, but he'll have his best chance to produce this year. He's a high-upside target in the late-middle rounds. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 6:41 pm
  • Tony Parker (rest) will sit out on Saturday
    Tony Parker (rest) will sit out of Saturday's exhibition.

    Advice: The Spurs are going to be cautious with their aging superstar and there was no reason to push him in the preseason. Apart from the risk of DNPs and the constant injury risk, Parker will be a decent option in the middle rounds of drafts if you are feeling lucky. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 4:03 pm
  • Jeremy Lin (ankle) unlikely for Sunday's game
    Jeremy Lin (ankle) is unlikely to suit up for Sunday's exhibition against the Jazz.

    Advice: He was spotted getting up some jumpers at Saturday's practice which is a good indication that he is making progress from his recently sprained ankle. We expect him to be ready for the season opener and the Lakers are just being cautious at the moment. Lin projects as a solid late-round selection as he should see plenty of minutes in LA's backcourt this season. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 1:25 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson (calf) likely to play Tuesday
    Jordan Clarkson (calf) was deemed likely to play on Tuesday according to coach Byron Scott.

    Advice: Clarkson injured his calf in a preseason game against the Wizards a week ago and now looks ready to return. While he has looked strong in camp, there is simply not enough playing time for Clarkson to make a dent on fantasy rosters. He is off the radar in standard leagues for the moment. Rotoworld.com
    Saturday, 11:22 am
  • Jeremy Lin (ankle) hopeful to play Sunday
    Jeremy Lin (ankle) is hopeful that he'll be able to suit up for Sunday's preseason game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: The Lakers could certainly use him back, as they've been running with Ronnie Price as their starting point guard with both Lin and Steve Nash (back) on the sidelines. While Lin may not enter the season as the team's starting point guard, he still makes for an intriguing late-round selection with some upside, as there's basically no way Nash makes it through a full season. Lin should be able to offer some assists, steals, and 3-pointers to a fantasy squad, while hitting free throws at an efficient rate. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 12:54 pm
  • Goran Dragic scores 20 in 24 minutes
    Goran Dragic made 9-of-14 from the field for 20 points against the Spurs on Thursday, adding one rebound, six assists, three steals, no turnovers and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: The Suns could look to go with a three-guard lineup, but it wouldn't really affect Dragic anyway outside of maybe a faster pace. He's safe to draft in the third round and was still a top-40 player last year even while Eric Bledsoe was in the lineup. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:01 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe looks great vs. Spurs
    Eric Bledsoe made 7-of-10 from the field for 16 points with six assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday.

    Advice: He had five shots from at least 19 feet and he made three of them, so that counts for something. Bledsoe is working on his mid-range game it's been positive so far, but he's going to be awesome on offense no matter what he decides to do. He'll put up top-40 value as long as he's healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:58 pm
  • Tony Parker plays 22 minutes
    Tony Parker scored nine points in 22 minutes against the Suns on Thursday to go with one rebound, four assists and four turnovers.

    Advice: Most of his teammates weren't there and he's played well this month. Parker is healthy and will need to stay healthy, especially with Patty Mills (shoulder) out until January. Cory Joseph is having a solid training camp, as well. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:48 pm
  • Ty Lawson hands out 10 assists
    Ty Lawson handed out 10 assists against the Warriors on Thursday to go with eight points, one rebound, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He did only shoot 1-of-8 from the field and he's in a mini-slump after a hot start. Lawson's production won't be the issue and all eyes will be on his ankles. His ceiling makes him a solid target in the third round. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 9:34 pm
  • Jeremy Lin (ankle) out Thursday vs Jazz
    Jeremy Lin (ankle) will sit out the Lakers' preseason game against the Jazz on Thursday.

    Advice: Lin started some light running, and is targeting Sunday for a return to action on the court. Resting his ankle may become an even bigger priority for the Lakers now that Steve Nash's health is already a major concern. His fantasy value jumps dramatically if he indeed takes over starting duties. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 1:14 pm
  • Brandon Knight (groin) unsure if he'll play
    Brandon Knight (groin) unsure if he'll play Friday.

    Advice: He will make the trip with the team to Cedar Rapids and New York, so the possibility remains that he will suit up for the Bucks' upcoming preseason games. Knight did say that his groin is feeling better and there doesn't seem to be a concern over him missing any regular season action. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 11:34 am
  • Nate Robinson will get some rest
    Nate Robinson will not play on Thursday.

    Advice: It's just some rest after his debut to the lineup last week. Robinson will only be a backup and is not worth drafting in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 10:45 am
  • Knicks pick up Shane Larkin's 3rd year option
    The New York Knicks have decided to pick up Shake Larkin's third-year contract option, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

    Advice: After going back and forth, the Knicks have decided to guarantee the $1.67 million on his Larkin's for the 2015-16 season. The 22-year-old is averaging 2.5 points and 1.5 assists in 20 minutes per game during the preseason and isn't much of a standard league fantasy option unless Jose Calderon goes down with an injury. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:55 am
  • George Hill posts nice line in loss
    George Hill hit 5-of-9 shots for 11 points, five rebounds, five assists and two steals in Wednesday's loss to Cleveland.

    Advice: In his three preseason game Hill is averaging 13 points, 4.3 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.3 3-pointers per game. After another disappointing season last year, Hill looks like a very promising point guard prospect this season, and can be had in the later rounds of most drafts. The depleted Pacers will need everything he can give. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 8:28 pm
  • Jeremy Lin does some light running
    Jeremy Lin (ankle) did some light running at practice on Wednesday and hopes to return to game action on Sunday.

    Advice: He's getting closer to a return and he should have plenty of minutes on his plate. Lin will be asked to drive a lot and it should help him facilitate the offense. Fantasy owners will probably have to reach a round or two in order to pick him up, but it looks like it could be worth it. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 1:50 pm
  • Brandon Knight still out with a groin issue
    Brandon Knight (groin) did not practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been out since Monday with his groin strain and downplayed the injury on Wednesday. Knight doesn't have a history of groin issues, but his injuries tend to linger more than most players. He's a possible late-round target in standard leagues and should be ready to go for the regular season. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:37 am
  • Jose Calderon invisible on Tuesday
    Jose Calderon started and played 26 minutes on Tuesday, but missed both his shots and finished with zero points, two rebounds, three assists and three steals.

    Advice: Not one of his better nights, but the starting job is his and he's a very efficient point guard. Once you need a starting PG at the end of your draft, he'll be a no-brainer option. Rotoworld.com
    Tuesday, 6:54 pm
  • Lawson (ankle) logs 24 minutes on Monday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) played 24 minutes in Monday's preseason game, scoring two points on 1-of-3 shooting (0-for-4 FTs) with three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four turnovers.

    Advice: Lawson has been playing through injuries dating back to his North Carolina days and his ankle will likely be an issue he deals with for the rest of his career, though it's too early to say with any certainty that it will be a major detriment this season. The Nuggets have a lot of depth at guard this season and an incremental downtick in minutes could make sense for all involved. Owners may want to bump Lawson slightly down due to his growing injury risk. Rotoworld.com

  • Nate Wolters (ankle) hoping to play Tuesday
    Nate Wolters (ankle) went through a full practice on Monday, and is hopeful to play in Tuesday's preseason game vs. Cleveland.

    Advice: Wolters is going to struggle to find minutes this season playing behind Brandon Knight and Kendall Marshall, and he doesn't look like someone worth targeting in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight (groin) will not play Tuesday
    Brandon Knight (strained right groin) did not practice Monday, and will not play in Tuesday's preseason game vs. Cleveland.

    Advice: This is the first time we're hearing about a groin injury, so hopefully this is more of a precautionary move than anything else. Knight can be a cheap source of some 3s, steals, assists, and points, and he makes for a decent value pick in the later rounds of drafts in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Ronnie Price logs team-high 33 minutes for LA
    Ronnie Price played a team-high 33 minutes off the Lakers' bench during Sunday's game, finishing with nine points, two boards, three assists and one steal.

    Advice: In a bizarre preseason twist, Price's shoe fell off during the game and he threw it at Andre Iguodala to disrupt his dribble. The move earned him a technical foul but shouldn't incur further punishment. If Steve Nash's health fails him, as it very well might, Price could find himself as L.A.'s default backup PG.
