  • T.J. Warren notches career-high 18 pts Sunday
    T.J. Warren sank 8-of-10 shots to finish Sunday's home loss with a career-high 18 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

    Advice: The Suns' playoff hopes to a massive blow with tonight's loss, but Warren's emergence as a reliable bench scorer provides another silver lining for their season. He did his damage in 29 minutes tonight, without any turnovers, but fantasy owners should still be skeptical -- efficient shooting hasn't amounted to much given his 17.8 minutes per game over the past three weeks.

  • C.J. Miles scores game-high 28 points in win
    C.J. Miles poured in a game-high 28 points to help Indiana beat the visiting Mavericks on Sunday, making 9-of-12 field goals with five 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: Miles also went 5-of-6 at the FT line, richly rewarding owners who gambled on him despite the return of Rodney Stuckey (calf). He's been good enough to keep in all active lineups, especially since the playoff-hungry Pacers are heading into a four-game week. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Green's offense is lonely in road defeat
    Jeff Green had one rebound without any assists, steals or blocks vs. the Spurs, but he chipped in 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting with a pair of 3-pointers.

    Advice: The offense is welcomed by Green's owners, but he'll need to produce more well-rounded lines to maintain the top-80 value which he's carved out over the past three weeks. He's typically a decent source of rebounds with a trickle of defensive stats, so don't read too much into tonight's game. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee can't heat up offensively
    Courtney Lee had another cool night offensively on Sunday, hitting 4-of-11 FGs to finish with 10 points, one rebound, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

    Advice: Lee's playing time was inflated by Tony Allen's absence with a sore hamstring, but Lee still didn't do enough to justify plucking him off the waiver wire. He came in shooting 32.7 percent from the field in March, and 23.7 percent from downtown, rendering him unusable in all but the deepest fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Henry Walker logs 34 minutes for battered MIA
    Henry Walker made his ninth start of the season on Sunday, posting six points, five rebounds, one assist and one block in 34 minutes during Miami's win vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Walker gives the Heat some much-needed frontcourt depth without benefiting fantasy owners -- his 34.3 percent shooting is reason enough to avoid him in standard leagues. Owners looking for a cheap daily-league option should monitor Miami's injury report, however, as Walker may be forced into a 35-minute role on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Beasley has a stinger in his elbow
    Michael Beasley suffered a stinger in his elbow during Sunday's game vs. the Pistons, and he was unable to return after just seven minutes of action.

    Advice: Beasley's elbow flared up and he didn't have any mobility in his arm after the game, but the Heat didn't seem to be overly concerned and head coach Erik Spoelstra is hopeful that he will play vs. the Spurs on Tuesday. Beasley isn't a great option in fantasy leagues and hasn't been getting a lot of minutes even with the Heat dealing with a lot of injuries, so owners in most leagues should probably leave him on the wire.

  • Jared Dudley (back) will not play on Monday
    Jared Dudley will not play vs. the Hawks on Monday in order to give his ailing back some extra rest.

    Advice: Dudley has been able to play in the past two games for the Bucks, but they are wanting to be cautious with him since he had missed six consecutive games earlier in March. Dudley should be fine for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls, but he is still not a fantasy option outside of deeper leagues. Expect O.J. Mayo and Jerryd Bayless to see a few extra minutes off the bench Monday. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Beasley bruises elbow Sunday vs. DET
    Michael Beasley is questionable to return on Sunday due to a bruised elbow.

    Advice: The Heat are coming apart at the seams, beginning the night extremely short-handed before losing both Beasley and Luol Deng (knee) on Sunday. If Beasley misses any time, James Ennis and Henry Walker will be thrust into bigger roles out of necessity. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyreke Evans starts slow, sits in blowout win
    Tyreke Evans got off to a slow start on Sunday and he finished with only nine points, three rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in 23 minutes.

    Advice: The Pelicans are now 21-14 with Evans starting at point guard. His run as the lead guard may end in the near future, however, as coach Monty Williams expects Jrue Holiday (leg) to return before the end of the regular season. That would do Evans' fantasy value no favors, but he's safe to keep locked into all active lineups -- today's low playing time was due largely to the lopsided score, and Evans should fare much better vs. the Lakers on Wednesday.

  • Alan Anderson scores nine pts w/ two steals
    Alan Anderson scored nine points on 3-of-6 shooting (2-of-2 from the charity stripe), with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists and two steals through 28 minutes of action.

    Advice: Anderson is a guy that can do a little bit of everything, and he's seen his minutes increased over the past two games with Thaddeus Young (knee) unavailable. He's not going to blow you away with his production, but if you're in a deep league and looking for a low-end steals/3-point specialist, Anderson could be your guy. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Young (knee) to be reevaluated in a week
    Nick Young (knee) will be reevaluated in one week, but he remains without a timetable to return.

    Advice: This practically rules him out for the rest of the week, and head coach Byron Scott also said that Young would need at least another week of conditioning after that. There is a good chance that Young doesn't play again this season, but Scott refuses to shut him down. At this point in the season, it's safe to leave Young on the wire in just about all leagues.

  • Tony Allen (hamstring) won't play vs. Spurs
    Tony Allen (hamstring) will not play vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: Vince Carter will step into the starting lineup, but Jeff Green will probably see the biggest boost in value off the bench. Allen has no timetable to return, but considering how tricky hamstring strains can be, The Grizzlies will likely be cautious moving forward. Allen should be considered closer to doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Kings. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer posts all-around line in win
    Corey Brewer scored 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting, with five rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, two blocks and three turnovers through 22 minutes of action.

    Advice: Brewer continues to find ways to show up in the box score despite only playing 25 minutes per game for Houston. He's averaging 12.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 0.9 three-pointers per game through the month of March, making him a quality deep league asset. Rotoworld.com

  • Trevor Ariza does a little bit of everything
    Trevor Ariza was his usual multi-category self during Sunday's win over the Wizards, posting 13 points on 3-of-9 shooting (5-of-5 from the line) to go with eight rebounds, two 3-pointers, two assists, two steals and four turnovers through 38 minutes of action.

    Advice: Ariza is logging heavy minutes for the Rockets on a nightly basis, and his ability to fill up every category on the stat sheet while offering elite steals totals has him turning in early-round value on the season. Get ready for him to put on a show during the Rockets upcoming four-game week. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin (hamstring) out again on Sunday
    Kevin Martin (hamstring) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Sunday.

    Advice: Martin is targeting a return next week but he remains iffy to play in Monday's game vs. the Jazz, and cautious owners may want to hedge their bets in weekly leagues. The Wolves got a few healthy bodies back into the lineup with Anthony Bennett and Robbie Hummel returning on Sunday, but they'll still lean heavily on sixth-man Chase Budinger. Rotoworld.com

  • Arron Afflalo scores 21 points vs. Nuggets
    Arron Afflalo scored 21 points against the Nuggets on Saturday with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer on 8-of-11 from the field.

    Advice: Revenge game? Afflalo didn't really have beef with Denver, but this was a very, very overdue positive showing. His two steals and 21 points were the most he's produced in a Blazer uniform. We'll need to see it again, especially considering he's been posting some single-digit usage rates this month.

  • Tony Allen (hamstring) questionable for Sun
    Tony Allen (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: He did not return from his hamstring strain on Friday and he's dealt with hamstring strains before this season, so Allen has a decent chance to miss this game. If he's out, expect Jeff Green to step up in the starting lineup while Courtney Lee will also benefit. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin, Bennett & Hummel are questionable
    Kevin Martin (hamstring), Anthony Bennett (leg) and Robbie Hummel (hand) are questionable to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

    Advice: Martin said on Friday that he's hoping for his hamstring to heal by next week, so we still don't like his chances to play. Plus, the Wolves continue to list him as questionable as if they didn't even hear his comments. Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger benefit the most with Budinger serving as a solid add in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Green goes for 16 and eight off the bench
    Jeff Green scored 16 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 7-of-12 shots (including two threes) with eight rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Tony Allen got knocked out of the game with a hamstring injury and the rest of the backcourt isn't exactly a picture of health. Green's minutes become solidified if Allen misses any time and he might be in line for a few more touches too. He's on a bit of a hot streak with mid-round value over the last two weeks, but the Grizzlies' pair of three-game weeks offsets some of the buzz that might create. Give him a look with late-round expectations. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:08 pm
  • Tyreke goes for 25 and 10 in revenge game
    Tyreke Evans scored 25 points on 10-of-15 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in the Pelicans' 102-88 win over his old Kings squad on Friday.

    Advice: Evans is towing the line big-time for his fantasy owners as he continues to produce despite an ankle injury. Anthony Davis added 24 points on 11-of-26 shooting with nine rebounds, one steal and six blocks in the win. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Henry Walker scores 12 points vs. ATL
    Henry Walker scored 12 points with nine rebounds, five assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: Udonis Haslem played 38 minutes on Wednesday and now Walker gets 40 minutes tonight. This is your 2014-15 Miami Heat right now. Walker has buried at least three 3-pointers in four of his last five, averaging 8.4 points, 4.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.8 treys in that span. He's worth a look in standard leagues, especially with Dwyane Wade dealing with a knee issue. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:49 pm
  • Tony Allen (hamstring strain) leaves game
    Tony Allen suffered a left hamstring strain on Friday.

    Advice: He's had hamstring issues already this season and the Grizzlies are being blown out, so Allen is likely out for the game. If he needs to miss time, Courtney Lee and Jeff Green should pick up his minutes. Green would start and gain the most value. Allen finished with four points, four boards and one block in 19 minutes.

  • Kevin Martin, Ricky Rubio ruled out Friday
    Kevin Martin (hamstrings) and Ricky Rubio (ankle) will not play against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: Martin said he expects to be better next week, so he is probably going to miss at least a couple more games. Andrew Wiggins has been logging major minutes and will look to strength his case for Rookie of the Year. Lorenzo Brown will be getting most of Martin's minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin (hamstring) targeting next week?
    Kevin Martin (hamstrings) said his strained hamstrings should be better and good to go by next week.

    Advice: He's technically listed as questionable for tonight, but this update suggests he's not going to play. With Martin out, Andrew Wiggins has been playing a ton of minutes while Lorenzo Brown is also getting minutes in the 30s. Chase Budinger also benefits as the best floor-spacing guy on the team. Martin can be dropped in most formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley has awful shot in win
    Jared Dudley returned from his kneecap injury on Thursday, scoring two points with one rebound, one assist and one turnover.

    Advice: He had the worst shot you'll see all season with a backwards shot in the corner. We know that doesn't make sense, so click the link below to check it out. Dudley can be left on the wire in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Miles scores 26 points in a loss
    C.J. Miles was the good version of himself against the Bucks on Thursday, making 7-of-14 from the field for 26 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He briefly left the game due to a leg injury and was able to return about seven minutes later in real time. Miles has been able to knock down 2.1 treys per game in his previous 16 games since the break, but he's been detrimental to most fantasy categories. Congrats if you streamed him on the light night. Rotoworld.com
    Thursday, 7:45 pm
  • Jared Dudley (knee) will play Thursday
    Jared Dudley (knee) will play Thursday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Dudley had some good stretches during the season, but his play has really fallen off during the month of March with averages of just 2.5 points and 3.0 rebounds per game on 22.2 percent shooting from the field. He'll likely be eased back into the rotation, so it's safe to leave Dudley on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin (hamstring) questionable Friday
    Kevin Martin (hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Houston.

    Advice: Martin was "available to play" on Wednesday, but he never left the bench. Owners can expect to get another update on Martin following Friday morning's shootaround, and if he's unable to go, Chase Budinger and Lorenzo Brown will again be forced into heavy minutes for the short-handed Timberwolves. Budinger has been playing some great ball lately, and he'll be worth a look in daily leagues in Martin is indeed unavailable. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer (oblique) probable for Friday
    Corey Brewer (oblique strain) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Brewer hasn't missed any time with his oblique strain, so there's no reason to think he won't be able to give it a go on Friday. We'll let you know if that changes. Rotoworld.com

  • Trevor Ariza scores 22 in great line vs. NO
    Trevor Ariza was fantastic against the Pelicans during a 95-93 win on Wednesday, making 9-of-13 from the field for 22 points with nine rebounds, five assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: That's his fourth game in his last five tries with at least four dimes and he's really stepped up as more than just a catch-and-shoot guy. In that span, Ariza averaged 15.0 points, 8.6 boards, 4.0 dimes, 1.8 steals and 2.4 treys on 55.8 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line. He's getting hot for his fantasy owners at the right time. James Harden was no slouch with 25 points, six rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:48 pm
  • Courtney Lee scoreless in start
    Courtney Lee started after missing time with a hand injury, but missed all three of his shots and didn't score.

    Advice: Tony Allen has been hot for the Grizzlies and had seven points, eight rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer, despite hitting just 3-of-11 shots. Forget about Lee unless you see him get hot. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:16 pm
  • Tyreke Evans scores 28 points in return
    Tyreke Evans made 10-of-16 from the field against the Rockets on Wednesday with 28 points, two rebounds, seven assists, one block, two steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: It's his most efficient game of the season and it comes on the heels of missing a game on Sunday. Evans should be fine going forward, but his troublesome left ankle will always be something to watch. He'll be a must-start option against the Kings on Friday. Revenge game? Rotoworld.com

    Michael Beasley came off the bench and played just 14 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with six points, two steals and a block.

  • Henry Walker starts, hits four 3-pointers
    Henry Walker started for Dwyane Wade (knee) and hit 4-of-8 3-pointers for 12 points, four boards and two assists in Wednesday's win.

    Advice: James Ennis had six points and six rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench, and Tyler Johnson added 12 points, four rebounds, two steals and a block in 20 minutes. Wade is day-to-day with his injury, and we expect this trio to continue to chip in as long as he's out. Unfortunately, none of them can be trusted in fantasy, even when Wade is out. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 9:47 pm
  • Courtney Lee will start, Jeff Green off bench
    Courtney Lee (hand) will start against the Cavs on Wednesday with Jeff Green going back to the bench.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise with the Grizzlies saying they like Green as a primary scoring option off the bench. Lee has lost a lot of fantasy value since Green arrived and can be left on the wire in standard formats. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 5:04 pm
  • Kevin Martin is 'available to play' vs. LA
    Kevin Martin (hamstring) is available to play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Earlier reports say the injury situation is the same with the Wolves, so there's still a very good chance we don't see Martin out there tonight. Expect to see more Chase Budinger on the wing tonight with Justin Hamilton back. Lorenzo Brown should also get some minutes again tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Henry Walker starting, Beasley off bench
    Henry Walker will start against the Celtics on Wednesday with Michael Beasley coming off the bench.

    Advice: The Heat desperately need some scoring punch off the bench, so expect to see a lot of Beasley. He's also likely going to be a backup center fort Miami tonight. Walker is still a low-end option with Beasley offering the higher upside. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 4:15 pm
  • Michael Beasley will start on Wednesday
    Michael Beasley will enter the starting lineup on Wednesday vs. the Celtics in place of Hassan Whiteside (hand).

    Advice: The Heat are also missing Dwyane Wade (knee) and Chris Andersen (calf) tonight, so Beasley should be very busy on the offensive end. He is averaging 9.0 points, 4.4 boards and 1.3 assists in 24.3 minutes through 12 games in March, but he should see a nice bump in production in a critical matchup with the Celtics. Owners in daily leagues should give him a look. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin (hamstring) still questionable
    Kevin Martin (hamstring) is still questionable to play vs. the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Wolves are going to be extremely shorthanded again tonight, so they could use all the help they could get. If Martin can't play, Andrew Wiggins, Chase Budinger, Lorenzo Brown and Sean Kilpatrick should all get plenty of minutes on the wings, with Wiggins and Budinger offering the most upside. We still don't think Martin plays because the Wolves have no incentive to play him at less than 100 percent and they are currently playing for ping pong balls, so his owners should have a backup plan ready.

  • Tyreke Evans (ankle) still expected to play
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) is still expected to play against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: This is essentially a non-update for Evans and he should be ready to roll after missing Sunday's game against the Clippers. He can be inserted back into fantasy lineups. Expect to see less Norris Cole tonight. Rotoworld.com

    Courtney Lee (hand) is expected to play against the Cavs on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He's been out since Saturday due to a hand sprain, which has been a lingering issue for him in the past couple weeks. With Lee back, Tony Allen and Jeff Green will lose some playing time. Green may also come off the bench, but he's still worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley is questionable for Thursday
    Jared Dudley (knee) is questionable to play against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: He did go through practice, but that doesn't mean much because he went through practice on Monday and missed Tuesday's game. Dudley can remain on the wire in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 2:06 pm
  • Michael Beasley likely to start on Wednesday
    Michael Beasley will likely enter the starting lineup vs. the Celtics on Wednesday if Hassan Whiteside (hand) can't play.

    Advice: Beasley has averages of 9.0 points, 4.4 boards and 1.3 assists in 24.3 minutes per game during the month of March, so he could see a nice bump in production if he is forced to play big minutes. Chris Andersen (calf) is also questionable which only improves Beasley's outlook, so owners in daily leagues looking for a cheap plug-and-play should give him a look. Rotoworld.com

    Courtney Lee (hand) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Lee has missed two consecutive games, but we haven't heard a lot about his progress in the last few days. If Lee can't play tonight, Tony Allen will draw another start and is worth owning if you need steals while Jeff Green will continue to be a factor in the scoring column for the Grizzlies.

  • Tyreke Evans, Omer Asik expect to play Wed
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) and Omer Asik (calf) are both expected to play vs. the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: Evans was held out of Sunday's game vs. the Clippers, but he has been able to rest for a few days now, and he should be ready to resume his normal allotment of minutes tonight. With the Pelicans in the hunt for a playoff spot, Evans will likely continue to play through minor injuries for the foreseeable future. Go ahead and pencil him into all active lineups, and expect Norris Cole to return to the bench and lose most of his value. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Beasley starts w/ Whiteside ailing
    With Hassan Whiteside (hand) being stitched up by team trainers, Michael Beasley slid into Miami's starting lineup to begin the second half on Tuesday.

    Advice: Beasley finished with four points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes, but he also lost a critical jumpball which led to Milwaukee's game-winning 3-pointer. He's solidified himself as a reliable part of Miami's rotation but he's yet to cause a ripple in fantasy leagues. Whiteside's status for Wednesday's game is in real doubt, but Beasley is best suited to use in very deep leagues or daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

    Jared Dudley (knee) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Dudley is inching his way closer to making a return after going through a full practice on Monday, but today will not be the day. He wasn't playing well before going down, and he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin (hamstring) questionable for Wed
    Kevin Martin (hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Martin did not play during the Wolves last game due to his ailing hamstring, and with the Timberwolves playing for picks, there's no reason for Martin to play at less than 100 percent. We'll be monitoring his status closely, and if he's unavailable, Lorenzo Brown would have another opportunity to start, with Chase Budinger and Sean Kilpatrick seeing extended minutes in the backcourt. Budinger offers the most upside out of the group. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer (oblique) probable Wednesday
    Corey Brewer (oblique strain) is probable to play Wednesday vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: This is the first we're hearing of an oblique injury for Brewer, but with the Rockets listing him as probable, we're not expecting him to miss any time. Brewer has been productive through the month of March, putting in averages of 13.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 0.9 three-pointers per game on 48.1 percent shooting from the field.

    Tyreke Evans (ankle) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

  • Trevor Ariza scores four with 11 boards
    Trevor Ariza made 1-of-2 from the field for four points with 11 rebounds, one assist and two steals in 32 minutes against the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: It was a big surprise to see him not take many shots with his improved shooting lately, making 50.0 percent from the field in his last five. Ariza will likely get it going again soon and should be a mid-round player in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Allen productive in 27 minutes on Monday
    Tony Allen scored nine points on 4-of-5 shooting (including a three) with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in Monday's win over the Knicks.

    Advice: Allen has been a top-75 player over the last month and it's well past time he's owned in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Miles makes 3-of-16 from the field
    C.J. Miles made 3-of-16 from the field against the Rockets on Monday for six points with two rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He missed all eight shots from deep. Miles is the ultimate boom-or-bust player and he's one of the best bets if you had to guess a player was going to shoot below 25 percent from the game. Of course, he could drop 25 his next time out. He is what he is. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin bothered by hamstring injury
    Kevin Martin has been bothered by a hamstring injury and did not play on Monday against the Jazz.

    Advice: Martin is now officially a risk unless we hear from the team that he's ready to play significant minutes. Be careful on a drop because he can fill it up, but we're watching him closely for signs that he's going to shut it down. Rotoworld.com

  • Courtney Lee (hand) out again on Monday
    Courtney Lee (hand) will not play against the Knicks on Monday.

    Advice: The Grizzlies should be OK without him. On Saturday, Jeff Green and Tony Allen played outstanding ball with Green putting up a 23-point gem and Allen double-doubling with six steals. They're both worth looks in all leagues tonight. Lee can be cut in most leagues until he's deemed healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 23, 3:08 pm
  • Trevor Ariza, Pat Beverley will play on Mon
    Trevor Ariza (illness) and Patrick Beverley (elbow) will play against the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: He was questionable with an illness, but there was little doubt he would play after looking great on Saturday despite being listed for that game, as well. Ariza is a must-start player this week in all formats. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 23, 2:54 pm
  • Jared Dudley questionable for Tuesday
    Jared Dudley (knee) is questionable to play against the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: He went through practice on Monday and could return after missing most of the second half due to an issue with his kneecap. Dudley would take minutes away from Ersan Ilyasova, but Ghosface Ilya is still worth owning in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 23, 12:37 pm
  • Trevor Ariza (illness) questionable on Monday
    Trevor Ariza (illness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Ariza was questionable coming into Saturday's game against the Suns with an illness, but he went off for 15 points, 12 boards, five assists, two steals and three triples. However, the fact he's still sick a couple days later is not a great sign, and the Rockets are extremely banged up in the frontcourt at the wrong time. If Ariza can't go, rookie K.J. McDaniels could get the call. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin hands out career-high nine dimes
    Kevin Martin handed out a career-high nine assists during Sunday's loss to Charlotte, while scoring 15 points on 7-of-19 field goals.

    Advice: KevMart didn't make any 3-pointers and he only attempted one free throw all game, but he made up for it with four boards, one steal and the sudden outburst of assists. He had zero assists in his previous two games and is a dubious source of dimes even if Ricky Rubio's ankle injury costs him a few more games. Owners rely on Martin for points and 3-pointers, so consider tonight's game an added bonus. Rotoworld.com

  • Henry Walker shoots 0-of-6 in blowout loss
    Heat F Henry Walker missed all six of his shot attempts vs. the Thunder, finishing scoreless with four rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: More than three-quarters of Walker's shots come from beyond the arc, which makes him especially prone to boom-or-bust games offensively. He's foul-prone and has scored 10+ points just once in the month of March, so there's no reason to own him despite his steady minutes in Erik Spoelstra's second unit. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 22, 3:02 pm
  • Jared Dudley (knee) and Mayo (hamstring) out
    Jared Dudley (knee) and O.J. Mayo (hamstring) remain out indefinitely.

    Advice: Neither guy will play on Sunday, of course, and their absence leaves extra playing time available for Tyler Ennis, Jerryd Bayless, Ersan Ilyasova and others. Ilyasova is the best bet for reliable value, though Bayless is also worth a glance for deep-league owners seeking guard help. Dudley and Mayo both belong on the waiver wire until a return date is announced. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 22, 12:14 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (ankle) will not play Sunday
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: With Evans unavailable, Eric Gordon will be asked to do more on offense, and Norris Cole will see a bump in value as the starting point guard. Rotoworld.com

  • Tyreke Evans, Omer Asik questionable Sunday
    Tyreke Evans (left ankle sprain) and Omer Asik (calf) are questionable to play vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

    Advice: Evans injured his calf on Friday and wasn't able to return, so his owners might view it as a good thing that the Pelicans cited his previously sprained ankle for the reason as to why he is questionable. Evans will likely be a game-time decision tonight, so his owners will have no choice but to to check back later for the official word on his status. If Evans can't play, Norris Cole would likely start and would be worth a look in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Trevor Ariza scores 15 with 12 boards
    Trevor Ariza looked healthy against the Suns on Saturday with 15 points, 12 boards, five assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: It's obvious he'll be involved more in the offense now. Ariza is usually off the ball, but he's having one of his best runs with assists right now. He has a great chance to be a top-40 player this week and maybe even top 20 if he gets hot from deep. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 8:48 pm
  • Jeff Green scores 23 points with nine boards
    Jeff Green was terrific in the starting lineup against the Blazers on Saturday with 23 points, nine rebounds and five 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: He and Tony Allen picked up most of Courtney Lee's (hand) minutes. Green is going to move back to the bench once Lee gets healthy, but he still looked good on Friday with 15 points. Unless you were already eyeing him, Green isn't a great pickup in shallow leagues. He's worth a look if you need scoring, though. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 8:37 pm
  • Tony Allen double-doubles with six steals
    Tony Allen double-doubled with 10 points, 11 rebounds, one assist, six steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: He started tonight with Courtney Lee out of the lineup due to a nagging thumb injury. The more time Lee misses, the bigger the lines will be for Allen. If you need some steals, he's almost a must-own player. Rotoworld.com

  • Arron Afflalo scores eight points
    Arron Afflalo scored eight points on 3-of-6 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line with three rebounds, one assist and three fouls.

    Advice: Even with all the injuries, Afflalo still can't produce. He somehow only put up a 9.8 usage rate tonight, which makes his position of shooting guard a complete misnomer. His ceiling will be raised with all of these injuries, but there's no need to be proactive in adding him right now based on how poorly he's played. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 8:17 pm
  • C.J. Miles scores 14 points vs. Nets
    C.J. Miles made 5-of-11 from the field for 14 points with six boards and four 3-pointers during a 123-111 loss to the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He scored his first 12 points on 150.0 effective field goal percentage, but fizzled out making just 1-of-7 the rest of the way. Miles could be in line for more minutes, but Rodney Stuckey's calf injury sounds minor. Paul George (leg) could also return soon and take minutes from him. If he's on the wire, there's no need to be too aggressive in grabbing him. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 7:23 pm
  • Courtney Lee (hand) will not play Saturday
    Courtney Lee (hand) will not play against the Blazers on Saturday due to a right hand sprain.

    Advice: That means the Grizzlies will have their third different combo on the wings with Tony Allen and Jeff Green likely to start next to each other. Lee isn't too involved in the offense and only has a 15.1 usage rate, so there won't be too many extra shots to go around. That said, Green and Allen are worth starting in standard leagues tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 4:11 pm
  • Trevor Ariza (illness) will play on Saturday
    Trevor Ariza (illness) will play against the Suns on Saturday.

    Advice: He's the only player on the Rockets to start every game for them this season. Ariza is usually a catch-and-shoot guy, but he may be asked to do more on offense with the Rockets missing Terrence Jones (chest). Start Ariza in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 3:32 pm
  • Trevor Ariza expects to play on Saturday
    Trevor Ariza (illness) is expected to play against the Suns on Saturday.

    Advice: He missed shootaround, but it doesn't sound like he's going to miss his first game of the season. With Terrence Jones (chest) out indefinitely, Ariza should have more offensive responsibility. He's worth starting in daily leagues tonight in what should be an up-tempo game. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 2:57 pm
  • Jeff Green asked for his new bench role
    Jeff Green asked head coach Dave Joerger if he could come off the bench prior to Friday's game vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: The move certainly paid off for Green and he was really active with the second unit, scoring 15 points with three boards, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes. "The flow was there," Green said after their win over the Mavericks. "I’m going to end up playing with those guys in the starting unit anyway. But it’s good for myself because now I can be more aggressive. I don’t have to worry about getting Marc [Gasol] and Zach [Randolph] involved. By the time I get in they’ve already been involved. It’s on me to just go in be aggressive and try to score." Green will likely continue coming off the bench for the foreseeable future, and it looks like his value could actually be on the rise.

  • Trevor Ariza (illness) questionable Saturday
    Trevor Ariza (illness) missed shootaround and is considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Ariza has been on fire recently and has scored 17 or more points in each of his last three games, so it will be a huge blow for his owners if he is unable to give it a go. We should know more prior to tip-off, so his owners will want to be on alert for an update. If Ariza is unable to play, Corey Brewer would be in line for some extra minutes and would be worth a long look in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 21, 8:50 am
  • Tyreke Evans leaves game with calf injury
    Tyreke Evans left Friday's game midway through the third quarter due to a calf injury and did not return, finishing with two points on 1-of-4 shooting, five rebounds and four assists in 15 minutes.

    Advice: Evans was questionable for tonight's game due to an ankle injury so needless to say he's banged up. Norris Cole (16 points, five rebounds, four assists, two threes, 37 minutes) has had some standalone low-end appeal in 12-14 team leagues, but any time off for Evans would obviously boost him into easy late-round value with some upside beyond that. The Pelicans are in the thick of the playoff chase, so guys will push to play. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen plays 32 minutes in start
    Tony Allen started on Friday against the Mavs with 13 points, seven rebounds, one assist and two steals on 5-of-8 from the field and 3-of-8 from the line in 32 minutes.

    Advice: This is right up his alley for playing time and usage rate, so Allen will continue to be more of a steals guy with some boards and points mixed in. He's worth a look depending on your needs. Keep an eye on his status for the back-to-back set on Saturday, but there's little doubt the Grindfather will sit in the Grindhouse. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Green looks good as the sixth man
    Jeff Green came off the bench against the Mavs on Friday with 15 points, three rebounds, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: It was a good game for him and he'll be able to do more on offense if he's getting more run with the second unit. This is another reminder that starting doesn't necessarily mean more fantasy value. Green will continue to be a low-end player to own going forward, but keep an eye on him to see if he plays well again on Saturday. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 20, 10:43 pm
  • Beasley flirts with triple-double vs. Nuggets
    Michael Beasley flirted with a low-grade triple-double on Friday against the Nuggets, scoring nine points on 4-of-13 shooting (including a three) with eight rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block in 34 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Beasley hasn't been a great standard league asset because of poor percentages and just 1.8 combined steals, threes and blocks over his last seven games. There is a chance he mops up for the Heat down the stretch of the season, but with the Heat rising in the standings and not falling -- that chance lessens by the game. Rotoworld.com

  • Arron Afflalo has a bad night in Orlando
    Arron Afflalo didn't play well against one of his former teams in Orlando on Friday with seven points, three rebounds and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

    Advice: It hasn't gone well for him. Afflalo doesn't have a single steal in any of his last five games, averaging 13.2 points, 2.6 boards, 0.2 blocks and 2.6 treys on 42.6 percent from the field in that span. He's losing some playing time now and it's really hard to hold a guy who has yet to make a splash since joining the team. If there's something promising on the wire, cutting Afflalo makes sense. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 20, 6:46 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play on Friday
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play against the Warriors on Friday night.

    Advice: At least the Pelicans will have 40 percent of their starting lineup tonight. Evans has dealt with a ton of ankle injuries and he's still a risky play because of the Warriors defense and the garbage time factor. He should still have enough chances to put up numbers, though. Norris Cole isn't as appealing tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen will start for Jeff Green
    Tony Allen will start for Jeff Green on Friday against the Mavericks.

    Advice: It's not really a big move because Allen comes in for Green fairly early in the first quarter anyway. There's really no need to adjust minutes projections or output from this move. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley (back) will not play on Friday
    Jared Dudley (back spasms) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Brooklyn, and he is currently without an official timetable to return.

    Advice: With Dudley out, Ersan Ilyasova will likely continue to see his minutes in the 30s, with Giannis Antetokounmpo getting all the run he can handle. Dudley belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Mar 20, 8:26 am
  • Nick Young (knee) unlikely to make road trip
    Lakers' head coach Byron Scott said he's doubtful Nick Young (knee) will accompany the team on their upcoming five-game road trip.

    Advice: "I don’t see him going on this trip," Scott said. "He can do his therapy here." It sounds like Young will remain sidelined for at least the next six games, meaning he won't be able to return to action until April 1 at the earliest. Jordan Clarkson, Jeremy Lin, and Wayne Ellington will continue to log extended minutes in Young's absence, and at this point in the fantasy season, Swaggy P belongs on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com

  • Corey Brewer grabs 10 boards vs. Nuggets
    Corey Brewer grabbed 10 rebounds during a 118-108 win over the Nuggets on Thursday with six points, four rebounds, one steal and one turnover on 3-of-9 from the field.

    Advice: He has suddenly become a rebounding guard and pulled down a career-high 12 boards on Tuesday. Brewer's treys are down and he's slowed down in his last three outings, averaging 8.7 points, 8.3 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks on 37.9 percent from the field. He's more of a steals specialist as long as you're OK with his sub-par shooting. Rotoworld.com
