  • Will Bynum says he could play Friday vs. NY
    Will Bynum has officially signed a 10-day deal with the Wizards, and said he could play Friday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Bynum will offer some emergency backcourt depth to the Wizards, but he's not likely to do enough on the stat sheet to matter in most leagues. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Barea (ankle) hopeful to play Sunday
    J.J. Barea (ankle) said he is hopeful he'll be able to return to the lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: We'll be considering Barea questionable for that one, and it'll be Devin Harris as the primary beneficiary for however long Barea is out. Harris is averaging 8.9 points, 2.1 assists, and 1.1 three-pointers through the month of March, so he can be viewed as a low-end option in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Lowry (back) out Friday vs. the Lakers
    Kyle Lowry (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Lowry has said that he won't rush a return, but the Raptors have not given any clear timeline on when he might be able to return to action. While he's out, Greivis Vasquez will continue to start at point guard, with Lou Williams and DeMar DeRozan being tasked with some more responsibilities on offense. We'll be considering him questionable for Monday's game vs. the Rockets, stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Chalmers likely to get another start Friday
    With Dwyane Wade (knee) not likely to play Friday vs. the Hawks, Mario Chalmers looks like he'll get another game with the starting unit.

    Advice: Heat coach Erik Spoelstra hinted that he'll go with the same starting lineup from Wednesday which featured Goran Dragic, Mario Chalmers, Luol Deng, Henry Walker, and Udonis Haslem. Chalmers will see a boost in value as a starter, and he'll have a favorable matchup against the Hawks, so he's someone to consider in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Teague (ankle) out Friday vs. the Heat
    Jeff Teague (tender ankle) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Head coach Mike Budenholder would not say whether Teague would miss any additional time with the ankle injury, but we'll be considering him questionable for Saturday's game against the Hornets. With Teague out, Dennis Schroder will slide back into the starting lineup, and he looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues tonight with a favorable matchup against Miami.

  • Dwyane Wade (knee) misses shootaround Friday
    Dwyane Wade (knee) did not go through shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: Head coach Erik Spoelstra said that he doesn't expect Wade to play tonight, so we'll be considering him on the doubtful side of questionable. If he is forced to sit, expect Goran Dragic and Luol Deng to see some increased opportunity on offense, with Mario Chalmers likely starting at the two-spot. Rotoworld.com

  • Robinson (knee) may not be retained by LAC
    The Clippers are reportedly waiting to see how Nate Robinson's knee is recovering before deciding whether or not to sign him for the remainder of the season.

    Advice: Robinson's second 10-day contract with the club expired on Thursday, and given that the Clippers have not yet signed him, he's not going to be available for Friday's game vs. the Sixers. Through nine games with the Clippers, Robinson put in averages of 5.1 points and 2.2 assists over 14 minutes of action. His reserve minutes will likely go to Austin Rivers, and at this point, it's safe to cut Robinson in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Report: Wizards to sign Will Bynum on Friday
    The Wizards are expected to sign Will Bynum on Friday, according to people familiar with the situation.

    Advice: With injuries to Bradley Beal (ankle), Garrett Temple (hamstring), and Toure Murry (ankle), the Wizards were in need of some backcourt depth, so they cut Murry to make room for Bynum on the roster. Bynum is expected to be available for Friday's game vs. Charlotte, but he's not likely to earn significant minutes right out the gate, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.

  • O.J. Mayo scores three points in 13 minutes
    O.J. Mayo returned to action against the Pacers on Thursday, scoring three points with one rebound, four assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He didn't look too bad considering his hamstring issue has bothered him for most of the post-break run. Still, Mayo is likely going to have a 20-minute cap for the next week or so. Keep him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

  • George Hill scores 24 points, hits six treys
    George Hill stayed hot against the Bucks on Thursday during a 111-107 loss with 24 points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal and six 3-pointers on 7-of-12 from the field.

    Advice: His six 3-pointers were a career high and the Bucks just left him open way too often. He's scored at least 20 points in four of his last five, averaging 23.0 points, 4.2 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 triples. Hill no longer has a minutes limit and is one of the hottest properties in fantasy in the past two weeks with second-round value in that span. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:48 pm
  • C.J. Watson looks great off the bench
    C.J. Watson served as the sixth man against the Bucks on Thursday with 23 points, seven boards, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 4-of-9 from the field and 13-of-15 from the field.

    Advice: His minutes jumped back up after playing just 19 on Wednesday. Watson has slid right into Rodney Stuckey's role while the guard deals with a calf injury, but Stuckey could be back on Sunday. If Watson is still floating on the wire, he probably only has one more game of decent value headed his way. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:47 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Thursday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Thursday against the Pacers.

    Advice: Mayo was limited to just six minutes when he returned to action on Tuesday, but head coach Jason Kidd said he'll "add minutes" for Mayo tonight. That's a pretty vague quote, but we doubt Mayo would see his minutes much higher than the 20s. With a tough matchup against the Pacers, and a lot of uncertainty around how much floor time Mayo will see tonight, he's not a great option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:28 pm
  • Dwyane Wade (knee) questionable for Friday
    Dwyane Wade (knee) is questionable to play Friday vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: Wade was forced to spend Wednesday's game on the sidelines, which resulted in Mario Chalmers sliding into the starting unit, although he only managed to put up six points and seven assists over 37 minutes of action. If Wade is again unavailable on Friday, look for Goran Dragic and Luol Deng to do the heavy lifting on offense, with Chalmers and Henry Walker likely seeing extended minutes. Rotoworld.com

    Gary Neal (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: With Neal unavailable, the Wolves will again be forced to give heavy minutes to Andrew Wiggins, Chase Budinger, and Lorenzo Brown. With no clear return date in site, Neal belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Hornacek hopeful Knight (ankle) can play Fri.
    Suns' head coach Jeff Hornacek said he is hopeful that Brandon Knight (ankle) will be able to return to the lineup for Friday's game vs. Portland.

    Advice: Knight was running sprints, and played some one-on-one during Thursday's practice, and the Suns are currently listing him as the dreaded game-time decision. Owners will need to check back closer to Friday's tip, but if he is able to go, Marcus Morris' run with the starting unit will more than likely come to an end. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Barea (ankle) out Friday vs. San Antonio
    J.J. Barea (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: With Barea unavailable, Devin Harris will have the opportunity for some extended minutes. Harris is averaging 8.9 points, 2.1 assists, 1.1 three-pointers and 0.8 steals per game through the month of March, so his value is limited to deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Eric Bledsoe (illness) doesn't practice Thurs
    Eric Bledsoe (illness) did not practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Bledsoe was able to play through his illness on Wednesday, and he was simply set home for a rest day today in an effort to have him available for Friday's game vs. Portland. We're going to hold him off the injury report for now, but owners should check back for another update on Bledsoe's status following Friday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 12:19 pm
  • Temple (hamstring) gets up shots at practice
    Garrett Temple (hamstring) was spotted getting up some shots following Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Temple was not able to practice on Thursday, and has been out since March 9, so we'll be considering him doubtful for Friday's game vs. Charlotte. With season averages of just 3.9 points on 40.0 percent shooting from the field, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jordan Clarkson not happy with his play
    Despite solid back-to-back efforts on Tuesday and Wednesday, Jordan Clarkson said he's still not satisfied with his play.

    Advice: Despite his line 20 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals, and a block that included the game-winning free throws on Wednesday, Clarkson is still looking for improvement. "I think I took a few steps back," said Clarkson. "I didn’t take care of the ball well. I was holding it a little bit too much on the offensive end. I have to keep growing, watch the film and learn from it." As evidenced by his last two games, Clarkson has been fully unleashed in the Lakers' offense and is a must-own player in all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Pain-free Derrick Rose hopes to return soon
    Derrick Rose (knee) said he's pain free and hopes to start taking contact in practice either this week or next week.

    Advice: Rose wouldn't commit on a return date, but said that the process has been smooth and added that he hasn't experience any swelling. "I don't have it," Rose said. "I don't have any. So that's a good sign. The swelling is gone. So it's all about just getting on the court." While Rose may get himself back for the Bulls' last three or four regular season games, owners in standard fantasy leagues will want to avoid the uncertainty here. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Thomas offers self-criticism in return
    Isaiah Thomas (back) called his return to the court on Wednesday, "one of the worst games I've ever played."

    Advice: Thomas may want to go easy on himself since this was his first game since March 11, but he did struggle with just four points on 2-of-7 shooting in 20 minutes on Wednesday. "There's no excuses, I have to play better," said Thomas. "I'm my biggest critic, I have to come out and play better, offensively and defensively." Thomas will have three more weeks to shake the rust off and should be held in standard fantasy leagues while he's healthy. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 6:50 am
  • Jeff Teague plays well despite ankle injury
    Jeff Teague had 16 points and nine assists, returning after briefly leaving Wednesday's game with a minor ankle injury.

    Advice: The Hawks need to get their groove back on before the playoffs, but also want to keep their guys healthy. They play the Heat on Friday, so owners of Hawks will want to keep an eye out for some DNP-CD's for some of the starters, although it's possible they play everyone, as well. The game is in ATL, so maybe the Hawks will play their stars for the home crowd. Rotoworld.com

  • Russell Westbrook finally cools off vs. Spurs
    Russell Westbrook didn't make a basket after the first quarter in Wednesday's ugly 130-91 loss to the Spurs, finishing with 16 points, four rebounds, seven assists and two steals on 5-of-16 shooting.

    Advice: Given the score, it's pretty easy to understand Westbrook finally having an off night, and it didn't help that he didn't play in the fourth quarter. The good news is that he's healthy and probably really ticked off, and will take his anger out on the poor Jazz on Saturday. He came into this one with seven triple-doubles in his last 14 games.

  • Trey Burke starts, scores 22 points
    Trey Burke started at shooting guard and hit 9-of-19 shots for 22 points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Gordon Hayward (shoulder) and Rodney Hood (illness) were both out, so Burke (and Elijah Millsap) got the call to start. This was a nice game for Burke, but the lack of threes leaves it a feeling a bit empty. If he continues to start going forward, using him right now makes sense. Rotoworld.com

  • Randy Foye plays 34 minutes in return
    Randy Foye played 34 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday with five points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: If Randy Foye gets 34 minutes in the second half of the season, he's usually more like Randy Moss because he's straight cash, homey. Before missing Sunday due to an illness, he played at least 30 minutes in his previous three games. He's worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Zach LaVine stays hot in OT loss
    Zach LaVine had 18 points, six rebounds, five assists and a 3-pointer on 5-of-18 shooting in Wednesday's overtime loss.

    Advice: Ricky Rubio could be shut down for the season with his ankle injury, although that's far from a guarantee. But if you own LaVine, overlook the shooting and hang onto him until further notice. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Terry scores two points vs. Pelicans
    Jason Terry played 27 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday with two points, two rebounds, three assists and four turnovers.

    Advice: He missed all three shots from the field in a very disappointing start to his run as the starting point guard. Terry's minutes should remain in this neighborhood while he should get high single-digit shots per game. He's not a very strong grab in standard leagues with the Rockets looking to other guys for their offense. Additionally, the Rockets did use James Harden at point guard for a few possessions tonight.

  • Jordan Clarkson scores 20, hits game-winners
    Jordan Clarkson came off his career-high 30-point game and had 20 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals, a block and six turnovers in Wednesday's OT win against the Wolves.

    Advice: He also hit two free throws with 0.3 seconds left in overtime to give his team the win. While that's a good thing for JC and his fantasy owners, the Lakers were surely hoping for a loss in order to get more ping pong balls. Clarkson is a must-own player until further notice.

  • Jeremy Lin plays well in another start
    Jeremy Lin started again and had 19 points, three boards, five assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in Wednesday's overtime win over Minnesota.

    Advice: As long as Lin's starting alongside Jordan Clarkson, he should be owned in fantasy. The Lakers also learned that it's tough to tank against the lowly Wolves. Rotoworld.com

  • Isaiah Thomas a dud in return to action
    Isaiah Thomas returned from an eight-game absence with a back injury and hit just 2-of-7 shots for four points, three turnovers and nothing else in 20 minutes.

    Advice: Hopefully he wasn't in your lineup tonight. "Hopefully that was just a rhythm thing and not how he's feeling," coach Brad Stevens said. "That's what I want to know." Thomas is obviously worth holding and we're guessing he looks much better on Friday night against the hapless Knicks. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:05 pm
  • Evan Turner cools off in loss to Heat
    Evan Turner hit just 1-of-5 shots for four points, four rebounds and five assists in 20 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Heat were up by 17 at halftime and Brad Davis was trying several different and random combos in hopes of getting back into the game. Turner came in hot and Isaiah Thomas didn't look comfortable in his return to action, so we're not ready to give up on Turner just yet. Rotoworld.com

  • Greivis Vasquez scores 22 points in a start
    Greivis Vasquez scored 22 points in the starting lineup against the Bulls on Wednesday with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and six 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He's been very disappointing in his starts at point guard this season and finally came up big tonight in a losing effort. Kyle Lowry has a small chance to return on Friday against the Lakers, so there's no need to be too aggressive in adding Vasquez. If you want help this weekend and aren't limited with matchup moves, give him a look. Rotoworld.com

    George Hill hit a game-winning layup against the Wizards on Wednesday during a 103-101 victory, scoring 29 points with seven rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and four turnovers.

    Advice: He made 12-of-24 from the field and had total control of the offense tonight. Hill played a season-high 43 minutes, which crushed his previous season high of 36 from Monday night. It's pretty clear his minutes limit has been lifted, but this does have a little to do with Rodney Stuckey (calf) missing time. Hill is a must-start player regardless. Rotoworld.com

  • C.J. Watson slows down in 19 minutes
    C.J. Watson played 19 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday with 11 points, two rebounds, two assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: It wasn't as great as his line from Monday with a 23-point game in that one, but Watson still did a fine job with steals. His fantasy value hinges on Rodney Stuckey's calf, but he's still worth a look in daily leagues for Thursday with the Pacers being one of two teams playing (Bucks). Rotoworld.com

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) out on Wednesday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: He tried to warm up and just couldn't give it a go. Knight will have a chance to play on Friday and should be owned in all leagues now that he's close to a return. Marcus Morris will have another game to produce while Archie Goodwin may also help out more. Rotoworld.com

    Jeff Teague (ankle) will return against the Magic on Wednesday.

    Advice: He could barely walk to the locker room, so this is a surprise. The Hawks do play a home game on Friday and there's a decent chance for swelling on Teague. Considering Dennis Schroder was already worth owning in most leagues, he's a very good speculative add. Rotoworld.com

  • Trey Burke, Elijah Millsap starting Wednesday
    Trey Burke and Elijah Millsap are starting on Wednesday vs. the Blazers in place of Gordon Hayward (shoulder) and Rodney Hood (illness).

    Advice: The Jazz are going to heavily rely on Burke to generate a lot of offense, so he should be able to put together a nice line tonight. On the other hand, Millsap should also get plenty of run as well as Joe Ingles, but their value is strictly limited to deeper leagues for now. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Teague rolls left ankle vs. the Magic
    Jeff Teague suffered an apparent sprained left ankle against the Magic on Wednesday and went to the locker room.

    Advice: It did not look good and Teague needed some help to get to the locker room. He returned to the bench after a brief trip to the locker room, so apparently the injury wasn't as bad as it initially looked. Dennis Schroder's upside is so high that he's a very strong speculative add. Rotoworld.com

    Mario Chalmers will start against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's going to get some serious minutes with the Heat missing more than half their team for back in October. With so much offense missing because of Dwyane Wade (knee) being out, Chalmers should have his biggest chance to produce since the break. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: "Wade fell on his left knee in last night’s game and it continued to swell overnight," according to the team. Without Wade the Heat are going to be in dire straits for offense. Goran Dragic is going to dominate the offense and has a monster upside while Mario Chalmers and Tyler Johnson are also more attractive plays. Michael Beasley may take 25 shots tonight. As for Wade, his fantasy owners are going to be a little uneasy regarding his status for Friday against the Hawks. Rotoworld.com

    Isaiah Thomas (back) will play against the Heat on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been out since Mar. 9 and there has been growing optimism that he'd be ready to go since Monday. Thomas was arguably the best sixth man in the NBA since joining the Celtics with his sky-high usage rate, so his fantasy owners should have him locked and loaded for tonight. Expect to see Jae Crowder, Evan Turner and Marcus Smart to lose some chances to score tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • O.J. Mayo is probable to play Thursday
    O.J. Mayo is probable to play against the Pacers on Thursday after going through practice on Wednesday.

  • Brandon Knight hoping to play on Wednesday
    Brandon Knight (ankle) is hoping to play against the Kings on Wednesday and will likely be a game-time decision.

    Advice: If Knight does play, he will likely come off the bench to keep his ankle loose. Once he does come back, Marcus Morris would lose some playing time along with guys like Archie Goodwin, T.J. Warren and A.J. Price. Knight should be stashed in all leagues with his imminent return.

    Advice: Lowry has already said that he won't be rushing back from injury this time, so he is probably looking at an extended stint on the sidelines. Greivis Vasquez will likely start on Wednesday and is worth picking up in most leagues, while Lou Williams should see an uptick in minutes off the bench and can be considered a must-start option in all leagues.

    Advice: This is definitely exciting news for the Bulls, and Rose said his rehab is going smooth and he expects to be cleared for full contact sometime this week or the following. However, there is still no known timetable for his return, and fantasy owners outside of keeper leagues will want to avoid this situation because the Bulls will obviously proceed with caution.

  • Jordan Clarkson pours in career-high 30 pts
    Jordan Clarkson scored a career-high 30 points during Tuesday's loss in Oklahoma City, hitting 12-of-19 FGs with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three blocks.

    Advice: Two of his makes came from downtown and he committed a tolerable three turnovers in a team-high 36 minutes of action. Jeremy Lin joined Clarkson in the backcourt and it suited both players just fine, as they combined for 49 points on 60.0 percent shooting. The Lakers are in player-development mode and Clarkson is at the top of the list, so tonight's gem could be a harbinger of things to come in L.A.'s final dozen games. Rotoworld.com

    Jeremy Lin made the most of his start on Tuesday, racking up 19 points (6-of-11 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), two 3-pointers, two rebounds and seven assists.

    Advice: It's likely that Lin will start the rest of the season and fantasy owners should plug him into all active lineups. The Lakers are drifting toward the draft lottery but Lin will be playing with a purpose -- his $8.4 million contract expires this summer, setting him up for a nice payday in free agency. L.A.'s upcoming schedule also helps his case, as they're tied with Charlotte for the most remaining games. Rotoworld.com

    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) returned to action on Tuesday, going scoreless with two rebounds and one assist in six minutes vs. the Heat.

    Advice: He didn't check in until the end of the third quarter, presumably because Jason Kidd wanted more offensive weapons on the court with his Bucks trailing by seven points. Mayo has suffered a few setbacks with his hamstring in recent weeks and fantasy owners should view him with skepticism as long as he's playing limited minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Lowry (back) won't rush back this time
    Kyle Lowry said that he won't rush back from injury this time after he was forced to leave Tuesday's game vs. the Pistons due to back spasms.

    Advice: This doesn't sound very reassuring for his owners, and it looks like Lowry should be considered highly doubtful to play vs. the Bulls on Wednesday. We will pass along further updates once we know more, but his owners should have a backup plan ready. Greivis Vasquez will likely draw the start if Lowry can't give it a go and he is worth a look for anyone in need of 3-pointers and assists, while Lou Williams should see a nice uptick in minutes as well and would be a must-start option in all leagues.

  • Mario Chalmers chips in 14 pts off Heat bench
    Mario Chalmers scored 14 points with one 3-pointer, two assists and three steals in 27 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's crushing loss in Milwaukee.

    Advice: Before the game Erik Spoelstra told reporters, "For the next month each game will have the feel of playoff intensity." The No. 7 seed Heat were facing the No. 6 seed Bucks tonight and they blew a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter, so there's sure to be some soul-searching during their flight to Boston. Chalmers hasn't been worth owning in 12-team leagues since Goran Dragic (16 points, six assists) took over the starting PG job. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade scores 21 but Heat blow huge lead
    Dwyane Wade's 21 points, four assists and three steals weren't enough to avoid an 88-89 loss vs. the Bucks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Since the All-Star break, only Russell Westbrook has a higher usage rate than Wade (34.7 percent), and he earned Player of the Week honors for his stellar play from March 16 -22, when he averaged 24.5 points on 53.2 percent shooting, 2.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 2.3 steals. He's only missed one game since mid-February and he's peaking at the perfect time for fantasy owners and the Heat, who are still locked in a tight race for a playoff spot. Rotoworld.com

  • Greivis Vasquez logs 28 minutes w/ Lowry out
    Greivis Vasquez took over at PG once Kyle Lowry (back spasms) exited Tuesday's game, and he finished with seven points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers.

    Advice: It's possible that Lowry will miss more games, as back injuries are easy to aggravate, so owners in need of 3-pointers and assists should keep a close eye on Vasquez this week. The Raptors conclude the week with home games vs. the Bulls (Wednesday) and Lakers (Friday). Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Lowry (back) will not return on Tuesday
    Kyle Lowry (back spasms) left Tuesday's game vs. the Pistons and will not be able to return.

    Advice: Lowry had just returned from a two-game absence prior to tonight's game because of his back, so this is obviously a devastating blow for the Raptors and for his owners. We will go ahead and consider Lowry questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls, but considering he was only able to play 11 minutes before his back tightened up on him, he is probably closer to doubtful. If Lowry can't give it a go, Greivis Vasquez and Lou Williams would both benefit. Expect another update following shootaround on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

The Raptors have waited until just before the tip before announcing Lowry's status over the past two games, and that's the situation we're headed for again today.

    Advice: If Foye is able to go on Wednesday, he'll likely cut into the minutes of Jameer Nelson (hip) and Will Barton, while Garry Harris may fall out of the rotation entirely. Foye has played very well since the All-Star break with averages of 11.3 points, 3.0 assists, and 2.4 three-pointers per game, and he's well worth owning in standard leagues for his ability to light up the 3-point category.

He’s not ready to go yet." Devin Harris is in line to see a minutes boost against the Spurs, but he isn't a lock to play as he recovers from an illness, so we may get a look at Raymond Felton if Harris experiences a setback before tip-off.

    Advice: Burke's stat line had some saving graces but his overall play and his play with time expiring was ugly -- and the field goal percentage is obviously killer. Owners taking a chance on him are looking for some points, threes, assists and a low trickle of steals, with plenty of risk on a night-to-night basis. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: Gordon Hayward wasn't around but this is still a signature performance for LaVine in his rookie year. Yes, Ricky Rubio (ankle) could return, among others, to ruin his fun, but this type of upside can't be lying around any waiver wires. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He stepped up with Rodney Stuckey (calf) out and certainly didn't look like he had any issues with his back. Hill is really picking up his scoring in his last five, averaging 19.0 points, 3.4 boards, 3.8 dimes, 1.0 steals and 1.4 treys and 1.7 turnovers on 56.5 percent from the field.

    Advice: He is out on Monday. Stevens said it'll be "as close to probable as it gets" regarding the sixth man's status for Wednesday. This just made a very tough decision for fantasy owners in weekly leagues. If Thomas can make it back, that would give him three games to put up stats.

Just because both guys could join the starting lineup doesn't guarantee either anything in terms of playing time, but it would certainly add some on-the-surface appeal to each down the stretch.

    Advice: Lin made two 3-pointers with five boards, five assists and one steal, and he did it all in just 29 minutes of action. His back was reportedly 6-8 inches out of alignment as recently as Saturday, which makes tonight's sparkling performance even more impressive. He's expected to start the final 10 games of the season, unless Byron Scott changes his mind, which is good news for roto owners and anyone whose season continues until the bitter end.

    Advice: Ridiculous. Westbrook become the first player since Jason Kidd to have at least 10 triple-doubles in a season, and he also matched his career-high in assists tonight. He's been absolutely stupendous, and with Serge Ibaka (knee) and Kevin Durant (foot) out for the remainder of the regular-season, Russell is going to continue to flirt with video game-like lines.

It wasn't all good for Chalmers, as he shot 4-of-14 from the field and didn't have any assists.

Toronto is being cautious to avoid any long-term setback with the postseason just weeks away.

    Advice: It was the most minutes he had played since Mar. 6 vs. the 76ers, while rookie Dante Exum played just 18 minutes and was held scoreless, though it should be noted that he had to go up against Stephen Curry all night. Burke has now scored 14 or more points in each of his last three games, but it's hard to get behind an add as long as he continues to come off the bench.

    Advice: He owns the Rockets and put up another 30-point game against them earlier this season. This was a huge win for the Suns to get them within 2.5 games of the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference.

    Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: He was doubtful to play and still hasn't gone through practice yet. With Knight out, Marcus Morris will get most of his playing time and the lion's share of his shots. He's struggled, but give him a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Derrick Rose (knee) close to taking contact
    Coach Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose is close to taking contact in practice.

    Advice: Thibs still said he still doesn't know when Rose will be back, but he's certainly going to need to go through a practice or two before we have any idea when he'll be back. Fantasy owners can keep Rose on the wire in most leagues because the Bulls will handle his situation very carefully until the playoffs. Rotoworld.com

    Gary Neal (hand) is probable to play against the Hornets.

    Advice: He has been out since last Sunday due to a hand injury and it sounds like he'll be back for the home game. The Wolves were so thin on Thursday that they signed Sean Kilpatrick while Lorenzo Brown also played 26 minutes. If Neal can go, he'll be worth a look in deeper leagues. If he's on the wire, you can probably keep him their with the Wolves being extra cautious with injuries. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He is doing some non-contact stuff in practice and could get a full practice in at some point this month. Fantasy owners shouldn't be too eager in stashing Rose, especially with the fantasy playoffs just around the corner for most owners. Plus, Rose is unlikely to hit the ground running upon his return.

Lin has been solid since the break, averaging 12.9 points, 3.0 boards, 5.0 assists, 1.7 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.7 treys.

  • Yawn: Russell Westbrook posts 36-10-14
    Russell Westbrook triple-doubled in the Thunder's 123-115 win over the Hawks on Friday, scoring 36 points on 8-of-24 shooting (3-of-6 from deep, 17-of-17 from the line) with 10 rebounds, 14 assists and one steal.

    Advice: Westbrook is the sixth best fantasy play in 8-cat leagues this season despite playing just 54 games so far. He has also been the No. 1 and 3 play in 8- and 9-cat leagues over the last two months, basically averaging just under a 30-10-10 mark over the last 30 contests. Rotoworld.com

  • Chalmers has productive night vs. Nuggets
    Mario Chalmers scored 10 points on 2-of-4 shooting (6-of-7 FTs) with four rebounds and three assists in 28 minutes off the bench on Friday.

    Advice: Chalmers is providing some surprising late-round value over the past week or two, but he's 55 percent of his shots over the last seven games and when that straightens itself out he might not even be a 14-team play. Plan accordingly. Rotoworld.com

  • Greivis Vasquez scores 11 in a start
    Greivis Vasquez scored 11 points with four rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

    Advice: Kyle Lowry (back) did not play, but he's getting closer to a return. The Raptors have a day off on Saturday before they take on the Knicks, so Lowry has a good chance to suit up for that one. Vasquez is only worth a look if you need Lowry insurance or are desperate for a point guard on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Kyle Lowry (back) active, but not starting
    Kyle Lowry (back) will be active for Friday's game vs. Chicago, but Greivis Vasquez will draw the start at point guard.

    Advice: It's not clear exactly what this means, but Lowry may be on a minutes limit tonight, so owners will take some risk in putting him on their active roster. There's also no guarantees he even leaves the bench, so owners may want to consider sliding someone else into to Lowry's spot on your active roster. Rotoworld.com

    While Isaiah Thomas (tailbone, elbow) continues to improve, Celtics’ head coach Brad Stevens said he's unlikely for Sunday's game vs. Detroit, as well as Monday's game vs. Brooklyn.

    Advice: "He continues to feel better," said Stevens. "He's still very unlikely for Sunday, which I assume means unlikely for Monday. Holding pattern." That means Thomas will return for Wednesday's game vs. Miami at the earliest, and we'll continue to follow this situation closely. With Thomas out, Marcus Smart, Evan Turner, and Avery Bradley will continue to see some increased opportunity, with Bradley offering the most upside. Rotoworld.com

    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) and Jared Dudley (back) have been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Nets, and both players are without an official timetable to return.

    Advice: With both Mayo and Dudley unavailable, Giannis Antetokounmpo will get all the run he can handle with Jerryd Bayless and Tyler Ennis seeing extending minutes off the bench. Bayless can be viewed as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues, but Ennis doesn't offer much value at all. Mayo and Dudley can be cut in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeremy Lin (back) says he'll play Sunday

    Advice: Lin is dealing with back spasms and pain in his right wrist, but he was able to fight through his various ailments and end up suiting up for Thursday's game. He wasn't effective, shooting just 1-of-8 from the field, but head coach Byron Scott praised Lin for giving it a go. Lin will likely sit out Friday's practice in order to give his body time to recover for Sunday's game, and we'll be monitoring this situation closely. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    Trey Burke had another good night against the Lakers on Thursday with 17 points, two rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He scored 14 points on Wednesday and finally turned it around after hitting rock bottom over the weekend. Dante Exum is struggling on offense in a big way, but the Jazz don't need his production on offense now to begin with. Unless you're punting field goal percentage, there's no need to be too aggressive in picking up Burke. Rotoworld.com

    Jeremy Lin played through a back injury on Thursday against the Jazz, logging 22 minutes with two points, one rebound, four assists, three steals, one block and two turnovers on 1-of-8 from the field.

Lin has been productive this month before tonight, averaging 12.7 points, 3.7 boards, 5.4 assists, 0.9 blocks, 1.9 steals and 0.8 treys.

    Eric Bledsoe made 2-of-15 from the field for five points with 11 rebounds, two assists, four steals and three turnovers in 37 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

    Advice: Yikes. He gets a pass here because he's had a solid March to this point. In his previous games this month, Bledsoe averaged 17.3 points, 5.1 boards, 7.0 dimes, 1.6 steals and 1.5 treys on 49.5 percent from the field.

    Randy Foye was aggressive against the Rockets on Thursday with 23 points, two rebounds, six assists, one steal and five 3-pointers on 9-of-19 from the field.

    Advice: He rested on Sunday and scored 16 points on Monday while others were resting, so there's a chance Foye rests on Friday at Miami. It's tough to project what the Nuggets are going to do, but the coaches and the players voicing their displeasure make it less likely they rest guys.

    Zach LaVine made 7-of-13 from the field for 20 points with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

    Advice: Ricky Rubio (ankle) sat out in this road game and he could be back in the lineup on Sunday against the Hornets at home. Based on how the Wolves have been blatantly obvious about resting guys on the road, it's tough to add LaVine unless the Wolves have a definitive plan to rest Rubio.

    Advice: He's scary good right now, and worth every penny he costs in daily tournaments, despite his outrageous price tag.

    Advice: The Wizards don't return to Washington until March 25, so it sounds like Temple could be looking at an extended absence. Rasual Butler and Ramon Sessions will continue to split Temple's reserve minutes with him sidelined, but their not doing enough on the stat sheet to matter in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • J.J. Barea (illness) misses practice Tuesday
    J.J. Barea (illness) did not participate in Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: We'll be considering Barea questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic, and if he's unable to go, Monta Ellis and Rajon Rondo would be forced into heavy minutes with Devin Harris (illness) also looking unlikely. Raymond Felton would have the opportunity to see some increased minutes off the bench, but he's not going to do enough on the stat sheet to matter in any league as a reserve for the Mavericks. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Rose (knee) does non-contact work at practice
    Derrick Rose (knee) went through some non-contact work during Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Bulls' head coach Tom Thibodeau said that Rose is "on schedule, maybe even slightly ahead," and this is excellent news for the Bulls' championship aspirations. However, Rose is currently at the beginning of the 3-week mark of his initial 4-6 week timetable, so he won't be returning this week. If your team is fighting to make it to the next round of the playoffs, it wouldn't be advisable to have Rose on your roster. Rotoworld.com

  • Clarkson scores 17 points in Lakers loss
    Jordan Clarkson scored 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds, three assists and two steals over 25 minutes on Monday against the Warriors.

    Advice: Clarkson played well and also busted out of a shooting slump at least a little bit tonight. Even though Jeremy Lin (15 points, four assists, one steal, two blocks, one three, 23 minutes) will reportedly move into the starting lineup at some point in the next seven games or so, Clarkson should be held going forward.

  • Russell Westbrook fouls out, drops 24 in loss
    Russell Westbrook fouled out and committed seven turnovers during a 119-115 loss to the Mavs on Monday, scoring 24 points with eight rebounds, 12 assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

    Advice: It wasn't his best game and his turnovers are ridiculous right now. In his last five, Westbrook averaged an unfathomable 7.6 turnovers per game. On the other hand, he's averaged 28.6 points, 9.8 boards, 10.8 assists, 2.6 steals and 2.0 treys. OKC is somehow going to have to get him some help, but Westy will be dropping colossal lines until Kevin Durant (foot) makes it back. Rotoworld.com

  • LaVine posts sloppy 20 points with four treys
    Zach LaVine scored 20 points on 8-of-15 shooting (including four treys) with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and six turnovers in 31 minutes on Monday with Ricky Rubio (ankle) out.

    Advice: LaVine has enough upside at this type of year that he should be owned in most leagues, though consistency issues and Rubio's presence will linger. In the case of the latter, LaVine needs a Rubio shutdown to have any value, but if that happens then he'll be a threat for big, inefficient numbers every night. Depending on your team needs, his value could sway quite a bit as well. Rotoworld.com

  • Dwyane Wade scores 32 in win over Cavs
    Dwyane Wade was in superstar mode during a 106-92 win over the Cavs on Monday, scoring 32 points with two rebounds, two assists and a season-high five steals in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He was 13-of-18 from the field and just did whatever he wanted on offense for his second 30-point game against the Cavs this season. "When we play the way we played tonight on both ends of the floor, we know we can beat anyone," Wade said. It sounds like the Heat are now going for the postseason and they're sitting in the No. 8 spot right now with the tiebreaker over Boston. Wade will have much more fantasy value if the Heat stay in the hunt. Rotoworld.com
