  • Kevin Martin out on Monday night
    Kevin Martin (hamstrings) will not play on Monday night against the Jazz.

    Advice: He said last week he was hopeful to play this week and maybe he'll give it a go Wednesday at home against the Raptors. Still, Martin isn't worth owning in most leagues with all the uncertainty around him. Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger benefit most. Rotoworld.com

  • Tony Allen (hamstring) without a timetable
    Tony Allen (hamstring) does not have a timetable to return.

    Advice: He's not going to play on Monday and he could miss the entire week due to the aggravation to his hamstring. It'll be Vince Carter getting most of his minutes while Jeff Green also benefits. Allen can be dropped in all re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Luc Mbah a Moute out for Monday vs. Lakers
    Luc Mbah a Moute will not play against the Lakers on Monday.

    Advice: There's no word as to why just yet, but he missed Wednesday's game due to a shoulder issue. The 76ers will give most of their forward minutes to Nerlens Noel, Robert Covington, JaKarr Sampson, Thomas Robinson and Hollis Thompson. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 3:34 pm
  • Jerami Grant (illness) out for Monday night
    Jerami Grant (illness) will not play against the Lakers on Monday.

    Advice: So that's at least three players in the Lakers at Sixers game who are out with an upper respiratory illness. With Grant out, JaKarr Sampson is going to get the start, but he's not a fantasy option. No Grant should help Robert Covington and Hollis Thompson. Fantasy owners in almost any league can't start Grant this week. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Richardson out for a few games
    Jason Richardson (knee) will miss a few games due to knee soreness and swelling.

    Advice: The 76ers have just eight games left this season, so Richardson will likely miss at least half of them. The team will likely start Nerlens Noel, Jerami Grant, Robert Covington, Ish Smith and Furkan Aldemir going forward. Richardson can be dropped everywhere while Grant, Covington and Aldemir benefit slightly. Rotoworld.com

  • Luol Deng (knee) questionable for Tuesday
    Luol Deng (knee) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Tuesday night.

    Advice: He had some swelling in his knee on Sunday and did not play in the second half. Deng has dealt with a handful of knee and leg issues this season, so there's a decent chance he's out. Miami does have four games this week, so Deng could get multiple games in even if he misses Tuesday. If he's out, Bill Walker and James Ennis will get more run. Deng's fantasy owners might want to play it safe and go with someone else in weekly leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Michael Beasley (elbow) is questionable Tues
    Michael Beasley (elbow) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Tuesday night.

    Advice: He suffered a stinger on Sunday and could only play seven minutes. If he's out, there should be more minutes going to Bill Walker and Udonis Haslem. Beasley doesn't have a high enough upside to keep on most fantasy rosters right now. Rotoworld.com

  • Draymond Green says he's going to sit
    Updating a previous item, Draymond Green (shin, Blake-itis) jokingly said he's going to sit out on Tuesday because he has "Blake-itis."

    Advice: When it comes to quotes about the Clippers, it's hard to top some of the things Draymond Green has said -- that would be a fantastic series in the second round, by the way. Green and the Warriors do get three more games this week, but one would think Green will miss one of the road-road back-to-back games on Saturday and Sunday. His owners should only plan on having him for two games at most. Rotoworld.com

  • Draymond Green (shin) could miss Tuesday
    Draymond Green is dealing with a shin issue and it could keep him out of action on Tuesday against the Clippers.

    Advice: It sounds like he's not going to get a "Cool Story, Glenn" game. Green missed Saturday due to rest and coach Steve Kerr said his star PF is banged up, so his fantasy owners can probably expect him to miss at least two more games the rest of the way. With Green out, David Lee and James Michael McAdoo would get his minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Rudy Gay likely to sit on Wednesday night
    Rudy Gay could sit on Wednesday night in Houston.

    Advice: We're just guessing here, but the Kings sitting DeMarcus Cousins in a road game that's not in back-to-back set suggests Rudy won't play. We'll pass along anything official, but for now his owners should plan on him getting three games this week. Omri Casspi, Ben McLemore and Sauce Castillo would benefit most. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:38 am
  • Anthony Bennett is probable to play
    Anthony Bennett is probable to play against the Jazz on Monday.

    Advice: He re-sprained his ankle on Sunday in his return and was held to just 12 minutes. Bennett would likely get a nice chunk of Gorgui Dieng's minutes, so he's on the fantasy radar right now. Even with some upside, it's still too hard to count on him until we see him get over 20 minutes in a game. Rotoworld.com
    Today, 11:08 am
  • Thad Young questionable vs. IND on Tuesday
    Thad Young (knee) shot around on Monday, and he's being listed as questionable to face the Pacers on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's iffy at best for Tuesday and Wednesday's back-to-back set, and he's been out since March 25 with the knee injury. Young's owners can't afford to rely on his return right now given he doesn't appear anywhere close to full strength, and if Young continues to sit, Miles Plumlee is likely to to start at power forward with Earl Clark and Alan Anderson getting a little more time off the bench.

  • Wittman offers rare praise for Otto Porter
    Randy Wittman offered rare praise for Otto Porter, Jr. after Sunday's loss.

    Advice: "I thought Otto came in and gave us some good minutes," Wittman said. "I let him ride it out. He was aggressive and that’s we need." Porter had 15 points, six boards and a steal in just 18 minutes after seeing a combined 12 seconds in the two games prior to that. We're going to need to see more of this type of production from Porter before offering any kind of pursuit. Rotoworld.com

  • Paul George still awaiting medical clearance
    Paul George (leg) is still awaiting medical clearance before making his potential season debut, and he will not play on Tuesday against the Nets.

    Advice: George has passed all of the tests to play, but the medical staff has not cleared him. The fact that George hasn't received clearance from the team's medical staff should have several pumping the brakes on his possible return. While everyone has been trying to guess when or if George will be back, nobody really knows. He's not worth stashing in almost any format. Rotoworld.com

  • Nick Young still hopeful to return this year
    Nick Young (knee) remains hopeful to return this season.

    Advice: Young's knee remains unchanged, so it's hard to see how that's going to happen. The Lakers are considering shutting down Young, but the team isn't at that point yet. "We’re not in a big hurry," Scott said. "As long as he has some problems going on in there, we’re going to take our time." We wouldn't expect Swaggy P back this season. Rotoworld.com

  • Kevin Martin questionable vs. Jazz on Monday
    Kevin Martin (hamstring) is questionable to face the Jazz on Monday.

    Advice: We'd bet on him skipping this one. Martin has shown an unwillingness to inconvenience himself this season with the Timberwolves playing for ping pong balls, and he will take his sweet time in deciding when to return. We'd expect Lorenzo Brown to draw another start in his place. As a starter, Brown is averaging 6.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 5.8 assists and 1.6 steals on 38.9 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com

  • Clifford gives Jeff Taylor praise as starter
    Steve Clifford praised Jeff Taylor's play as a starter in place of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle).

    Advice: "He did a good job," coach Steve Clifford said of Taylor. "He was locked in from the beginning of the game. Last (season), when Michael Kidd-Gilchrist got hurt, he had some really good games. I think his concentration was up and he played really well." With MKG out 7-10 days, the team needs Taylor's "defensive component" in the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com

  • Motiejunas returning before season ends?
    Donatas Motiejunas (back) is expected to return before the regular season concludes.

    Advice: GM Daryl Morey didn't offer a specific timetable or date, but it's good to hear that Motiejunas' back isn't a long-term concern. When he does return, the Rockets will likely bring him along slowly as to not to aggravate the issue,. If Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) is back by then, Houston will suddenly have a much deeper frontline. Rotoworld.com

  • Jones, Motiejunas expected back this season
    Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) and Donatas Motiejunas (back) are both expected back before the end of the regular season, according to Rockets GM Daryl Morey.

    Advice: That would be great news for a Rockets team that is shorthanded on its frontline. Although neither player has a specific timetable or circled date in an attempt to return, it's encouraging to hear both are making progress. When each is back in the fold, Josh Smith will obviously lose some of his luster. Rotoworld.com

  • Jared Dudley wants to re-sign with Bucks
    Jared Dudley would like to re-sign with the Bucks after the season.

    Advice: Excited by the youth infusion in Milwaukee and the leadership of Jason Kidd, Dudley is in a good place as a veteran leader on an up-and-coming team. Dudley did say he'd be willing to take less money on a multi-year deal, but it's too early to say whether or not the two sides will work something out. Rotoworld.com

  • Luol Deng dealing with swelling in his knee
    Luol Deng's knee swelled up at halftime of Sunday's win.

    Advice: Deng did not play in the second half, and when asked about how he felt, Deng said they'd just take it day-by-day in an attempt to get all of the swelling out of the area. Right now, he sounds very iffy for Tuesday, leaving James Ennis as a possibility to start in his place. Ennis started the second half for Deng on Sunday and finished with 16 points, six rebounds and two threes on 5-of-7 shooting in 24.5 minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Dion Waiters to have sore foot examined
    Dion Waiters (foot) will have an examination when the Thunder return to Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Waiters has been complaining of foot pain over the last few games, and this is par for the course considering how OKC's season is going with injuries. Waiters did manage to jack up 20 shots in Sunday's win over Phoenix and played nearly 38 minutes while doing so. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Bennett aggravates ankle in return
    Anthony Bennett "re-sprained his ankle a little" on Sunday, according to Flip Saunders, but Bennett downplayed the injury after the game.

    Advice: "It felt good," he said. "It just got a little sore near the end, but I tried to push through." Saunders also said that Bennett looked "rusty," which is understandable considering he'd missed more than a month of action. He belongs on the waiver wire while getting back up to speed.

  • Jared Dudley (back) confirms he'll play Wed
    Jared Dudley (back) confirmed that he'll be ready to play vs. the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Advice: "I'm 100% fine," he wrote on Twitter. "Just being pre cautious, I'll be ready [Wednesday]." This is excellent news for Bucks fans and any deep-league owners who have Dudley on their bench. He has had spurts of sustained value this year but is too risky for use in most leagues given the recurring nature of his back injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Dion Waiters (ankle) starts, gets 18 points
    Dion Waiters (ankle) started Sunday's road win vs. the Suns and finished with 18 points 8-of-20 shooting with one 3-pointer, three rebound, one assist and three turnovers.

    Advice: He struggled on Saturday with just three points on 1-of-4 shooting, possibly due to his sore ankle, but the injury didn't appear to limit him tonight. The bad news is that this line typifies the reasons why Waiters is a poor fantasy option -- he shoots inefficiently and contributes paltry rebounds, assists, steals and blocks, so one off-shooting night can tank his week.

    Yesterday, 8:55 pm
  • Solomon Hill plays season-low 14 minutes
    Solomon Hill played a season-low 14 minutes on Sunday, finishing with two points, one rebound, six assists and four personal fouls.

    Advice: Hill's reliable playing time and lack of DNPs haven't led to sustained fantasy value and he's only suitable for deep-league rosters, especially now that Rodney Stuckey (calf) has returned to health. The foul problem helps to explain tonight's limited action but there's no reason to rely on a swingman who has scored double-digit points just five times in March. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 7:04 pm
  • 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
    Yesterday, 6:10 pm
  • 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.

  • James Ennis scores 16 points off Heat bench
    Heat rookie James Ennis stepped up in 24 minutes off the bench on Sunday, notching 16 points, two 3-pointers, six rebounds and one assist.

    Advice: He made 5-of-7 FGs and 4-of-6 FTs to help Miami pull out a victory despite finishing the game with only seven healthy players. Michael Beasley (elbow) and Luol Deng (knee) are both questionable to return on Tuesday, but Ennis would be a viable fill-in fantasy option if one or both forwards are ruled out. Stay tuned.

  • 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

  • Luol Deng (knee contusion) out for game Sun
    Luol Deng suffered a left knee contusion vs. the Pistons on Sunday and will not return.

    Advice: The Heat have had terrible luck with injuries this season, and knowing how cautious they tend to be with their players, it's possible that Deng's status could be in jeopardy for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs. For what it's worth , head coach Erik Spoelstra was optimistic that Deng would be able to play on Tuesday, but we should be able to provide more details when he is evaluated on Monday. If Deng is forced to miss any time, James Ennis, Michael Beasley (elbow) and Henry Walker would all have to step up on the wing. Deng finished with four points, two boards, one assist and one steal in 18 minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Jerami Grant lousy in start for Philly Sunday
    Jerami Grant struggled on Sunday with two points and two boards in a road loss at Cleveland, missing all four of his field goal attempts while going 2-of-4 at the free throw line.

    Advice: Grant's starting job is nearly irrelevant for fantasy purposes -- in three previous starts he averaged 6.7 points on 30.4 percent shooting, and was only worth owning for blocks (2.7). His defensive upside and 3-point range may be enough for ownership in deep leagues, but everyone else should steer clear of his FG percentage (37.8 percent) and FT percentage (59.7 percent).

  • Jason Richardson rested vs. Cavs on Sunday
    Jason Richardson was rested on Sunday, the first game of a back-to-back set.

    Advice: Philly hosts the Lakers on Monday in a cross-conference battle of cellar-dwellers, and we expect J-Rich to return to the lineup and play his usual 15-20 minutes. His fantasy value is restricted to a handful of 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Bennett (ankle) quiet in return Sun
    Anthony Bennett (leg) returned to action on Sunday with two points, one rebound, two assists and one steal in 12 minutes off Minnesota's bench.

    Advice: The former No. 1 pick hadn't played since a nine-minute stint in late February, so it's no surprise to see the Wolves ease him into the rotation. A fully-healthy Bennett could make some noise down the stretch, but time is quickly running out with only nine games left on the schedule. Better luck next year. Rotoworld.com
    Yesterday, 3:21 pm
  • 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

  • Otto Porter comes out of nowhere w/ 15 pts
    Otto Porter scored in double-figures for the first time since March 3 on Sunday, putting up 15 points on 4-of-7 shooting (5-of-7 from the line), with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, one steal and one turnover over 18 minutes of action.

    Advice: This line has fluke written all over it, as Porter had posted doughnuts in the scoring column in four of his five past outings. The minutes did jump dramatically tonight, but 18 minutes isn't enough time for him to repeat these results on a consistent basis. Needless to say, we need to see Porter with a few more games like this before recommending him as an add in any league. 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

  • Anthony Bennett (ankle) will return Sunday
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) will make his return Sunday vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: The Timberwolves have been absolutely devastated by injuries, so Bennett will provide the team with some much-needed frontcourt depth. That being said, he's been out since Feb. 20, so he'll more than likely have his minutes held in check today as his conditioning isn't likely where it needs to be. Until he's logging major minutes for Minnesota, he belongs on the waiver wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Dion Waiters scores just three points in loss
    Dion Waiters scored just three points on 1-of-4 shooting in a loss to the Jazz on Saturday, adding two boards, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Waiters had scored in double digits in each of his last four games, so this was a frustrating line for any owners relying on him tonight. Waiters is still locked into a starting role moving forward with Andre Roberson on the shelf, and he will have a chance to bounce back vs. the Suns on Sunday. That being said, he is far from a must-own player in standard leagues. 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.

    Gordon Hayward shot just 4-of-16 from the field on Saturday with four turnovers, but he still managed to finish with 17 points, five boards, five assists, two steals and two blocks in 38 minutes.

    Advice: This was Hayward's second game back since missing two consecutive games with a shoulder injury, so his owners should give him a pass for the poor shooting. The good news is that Hayward played 38 minutes tonight, and it doesn't appear that he will miss any more action due to his shoulder. Deploy him with confidence. Rotoworld.com

  • Jeff Taylor scores nine points vs. Hawks
    Jeff Taylor scored nine points in 27 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday with two boards, two assists and no turnovers.

    Advice: He was almost exactly at his previous averages as the starter except he didn't have any treys tonight. Taylor should be in this neighborhood in the upcoming week. He does have four games and will likely start all of them, so give him a look in deep weekly leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Draymond Green dealing with nagging injuries?
    Coach Steve Kerr said Draymond Green (rest, out Saturday) has been dealing with nagging injuries and the three days off should help.

    Advice: Green has started all 72 games before Saturday and he certainly doesn't play half speed or shy away from contact. Green will have a chance to sit in another game with next weekend's road-road back-to-back as a possible time to do so. Rotoworld.com

  • Anthony Bennett (ankle) is questionable
    Anthony Bennett (ankle) is questionable to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

    Advice: He has been ruled out for games dating back to Feb. 20 and maybe he can get back in the rotation. The Wolves are rolling with just eight guys in their rotation and only seven of them are getting consistent double-digit minutes, so Bennett would likely get some run. He can stay on the wire until he's officially a go, though. 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

He will likely be in the mid 20s for minutes again and these stats serve as a fair expectation. Gerald Henderson and Marvin Williams are much better players tonight. Rotoworld.com

  • Paul George still not saying positive things
    Paul George (leg) said "everyone has to feel good" and "has to be on the same page" about his return this season.

    Advice: "The last is just doing it consistently and over a long period of time of having great practices," George said. "It’s not about the plays. That’s the last step." This doesn't sound like a guy eager to come back and he's likely going to have a minutes cap when he plays, so it's hard to stash him in almost any league. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: So much for George supposedly playing this week. The Pacers have rightfully been cautious with their franchise player and it's highly doubtful that he takes the court any time soon.

  • Draymond Green (rest) will not play Saturday
    Draymond Green (rest) will not play vs. the Bucks on Saturday.

    Advice: The Warriors are coasting towards the playoffs, and it was inevitable that Green would eventually get a day off. This is a tough blow for owners in the middle of fantasy playoffs, but Green should be good to go vs. Doc Rivers and the Clippers on Tuesday. David Lee will likely draw the start, while Marreese Speights should see more playing time as well. Rotoworld.com

  • Thaddeus Young (knee) officially out Sunday
    Thaddeus Young (knee) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: This will be his second straight game out of the lineup, and there is still no indication on when he will return. The Nets are still in the playoff hunt, so hopefully we will see Young back out on the floor soon. Mason Plumlee started at power forward on Friday vs. the Cavaliers, but he was largely ineffective and is only worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Hayward (shoulder) returns, produces vs. DEN
    Gordon Hayward (shoulder) returned from a two-game absence in Friday's loss to the Nuggets, scoring 24 points on 9-of-19 shooting (1-of-7 3PTs, 5-of-6 FTs) with seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Hayward looked fine and made it through the game unscathed at least as far as the postgame reporting indicates. If Derrick Favors misses any time with his back injury, you'll see Hayward get a few more touches. 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

  • Luc Mbah a Moute coming off the bench
    Luc Mbah a Moute played 22 minutes off the bench against the Clippers on Friday with 13 points, four rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: There were no clear reports of him playing tonight and L-MAM coming off the bench is unusual these days. He will likely get the Jason Richardson treatment and rest in some games to allow the younger guys to play more. When he's active, he's worth starting in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 8:00 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.

  • Donatas Motiejunas (back) out 1-2 weeks
    Donatas Motiejunas (back) is expected to miss the next 1-2 weeks.

    Advice: He has low back pain and tightness, so the Rockets are going to be very thin at power forward. Motiejunas was playing very well and scored 21 points on Wednesday, but he's suddenly a cut candidate in all leagues. It'll be Josh Smith getting all the minutes he can handle until Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) can return -- he could be back next week. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Donatas Motiejunas (back) out for Friday
    Donatas Motiejunas (back) will not play against the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: He could miss a couple more games because he couldn't even make it through shootaround today. With Donuts out, Josh Smith will start and could play minutes in the mid 30s. Expect to see more Trevor Ariza at the four. Rotoworld.com

  • Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) is making progress
    Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) is making significant progress and rode a stationary bike on Friday.

    Advice: If the progress continues, Jones could resume on-court activity as soon as Tuesday. This is great news to hear on Jones after suffering a very scary partially collapsed lung. Fantasy owners can probably keep him on the wire unless you have the luxury of stashing players right now. 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

  • Gordon Hayward (shoulder) looks like a go
    Gordon Hayward (shoulder) participated in shootaround on Friday and is probable to play against the Nuggets.

    Advice: He needed two games out of the lineup and should be ready to roll tonight. With Rodney Hood out, there should be more opportunity for Hayward to produce at a high level. Expect less output from Joe Ingles and Trey Burke tonight. Rotoworld.com
    Friday, 11:11 am
  • Donatas Motiejunas (back) misses shootaround
    Donatas Motiejunas (back) did not participate during shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Motiejunas isn't headed in the right direction after missing shootaround, so we're going to consider him closer to doubtful than questionable for tonight's game. If he's unable to go, Josh Smith would get all the run he can handle, and he'll be well worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    Gordon Hayward (shoulder) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Hayward spent the past two games on the sidelines, but it appears he'll be able to return to the lineup on Friday for a favorable matchup against the Nuggets. With Hayward back, Elijah Millsap and Trey Burke would be candidates to head back to the bench. Check back for another update on Hayward's status closer to Friday's tip. Rotoworld.com

  • 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

  • Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) will not play Fri
    Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Jones remains without a clear timetable to return, and at this point in the fantasy season, he belongs on the waiver wire in all re-draft leagues. With Donatas Motiejunas (back) being listed as questionable, Josh Smith could be in line for a healthy heaping of minutes Friday. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Donatas Motiejunas (back) questionable Friday
    Donatas Motiejunas (lower back pain) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: If Motiejunas is unable to go on Friday, Josh Smith would likely slide into the starting lineup, and he'd get all the run he can handle as the only healthy power forward on the roster. He'd draw a very favorable matchup against the Wolves, so Smith would be worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues if Motiejunas is forced to sit. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

  • Thaddeus Young out Friday, doubtful Sunday
    Thaddeus Young (knee) has been listed as out for Friday's game against the Cavaliers and doubtful for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

    Advice: An MRI on Young's left knee revealed a strain, so the Nets can breathe a sigh of relief as this one looked worse. Bojan Bogdanovic, Joe Johnson, Mason Plumlee, and Cory Jefferson will get the biggest fantasy boost while Young is out for Friday and likely Sunday. Rotoworld.com

  • Paul George out again vs Bucks on Thursday
    Paul George (leg) will be inactive for Thursday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Despite recent reports saying that George was close to a return, the daily injury report is saying otherwise. There's still a chance that he'll return to the court before the end of the regular season, but the opportunities are dwindling and fantasy owners in standard leagues would be wise to move on from George.

    Dion Waiters, who was benched for the start of the second half on Tuesday, started for the Thunder on Wednesday and had 14 points, a steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-11 shooting.

    Advice: Waiters' line was actually pretty decent due to the final score of 130-91 looking more like an old-school Globetrotters' score over the Washington Generals, instead of a meeting of two of the West's better teams. With Andre Roberson down and out, Waiters should continue to get plenty of starts and run from here on out. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:53 pm
  • Rudy Gay scores 14 in 29 minutes
    Rudy Gay scored 14 points with four rebounds, five assists and one steal in 29 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was on the injury report with his patella tendon issue, but that's probably not the reason why his playing time was low. Gay will be on the injury report going forward, but it's nothing to worry about as long as he's probable. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 11:46 pm
  • Jason Richardson plays 25 minutes
    Jason Richardson returned from rest on Wednesday with eight points, four rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer on 3-of-13 from the field.

    Advice: He's not going to play in back-to-back games and did not play on Tuesday. The 76ers have another back-to-back starting on Sunday, so keep that in mind if he's on your roster in a deep league. Rotoworld.com

  • Jerami Grant blocks five shots in start at PF
    Jerami Grant started at power forward against the Nuggets on Wednesday with six points, four rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer and five blocks in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Can we please keep him in the starting lineup, Brett Brown? Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) missed tonight and perhaps he misses more time. Grant has 4.0 blocks per game in his two starts and he continues to post highlight-reel plays. He's still below 40 percent from the field and 60 percent from the line, so his ceiling is going to be capped for standard leagues. Give Grant a look if you're looking for some steals, blocks and treys. Rotoworld.com

    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

    Donatas Motiejunas scored 21 points with eight rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer on 10-of-16 from the field in 37 minutes against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Advice: With Dwight Howard still on a minutes limit, Donuts was still able to eat. He should have another couple weeks of solid fantasy value in standard formats. It's also worth noting he played much more than Josh Smith (24 minutes) tonight. Start Motiejunas on Friday against the Wolves. 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

  • Rudy Gay ready to roll on Wednesday
    Rudy Gay (knee) will start against the Suns on Wednesday.

  • Thaddeus Young (left knee) out for game
    Thaddeus Young suffered a hyperextended left knee on Wednesday and will not return.

    Advice: X-rays were negative and he will likely have an MRI on Thursday. To clarify, a hyperextended knee means his joint just went past where it's normally supposed to go, so this isn't a specific diagnosis. We should know more on Thursday, but Young could miss time. It'll be Bojan Bogdanovic, Joe Johnson and Cory Jefferson stepping up. Young finished with 11 points and four boards in 23 minutes, and could miss time with this injury. Rotoworld.com

  • Thaddeus Young hurts left leg on Wednesday
    Thaddeus Young suffered an apparent left leg injury on Wednesday and went to the locker room.

    Jerami Grant will start against the Nuggets on Wednesday night.

    Advice: It'll be his second start of his career. In his first start, Grant played 30 minutes for eight points, four boards, one assist and three blocks. He's worth a look in deeper leagues and could climb into the standard league convo with his high upside. Rotoworld.com

  • Jason Richardson starting, Covington benched
    Jason Richardson (rest) will play vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday, shifting Robert Covington to the bench.

    Advice: J-Rich doesn't play in back-to-back sets which is why he didn't play on Tuesday, but he is ready to roll tonight. However, Richardson has struggled mightily for the 76ers, and he is only worth a look in deeper leagues for owners in need of scoring and 3-pointers. Covington's value takes a hit every time he comes off the bench, but he is still worth holing onto in most leagues for his ridiculous ability from beyond the arc. Rotoworld.com

    Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) will not play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

    Advice: It'll be Jerami Grant in the starting lineup in what should be an up-tempo game. There should also be more minutes available for Robert Covington and Thomas Robinson -- both looked very good on Tuesday. Mbah a Moute can be cut in most formats. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon Hayward (shoulder) out Wednesday
    Gordon Hayward (shoulder) will not play vs. the Blazers on Wednesday.

    Advice: This will be his second straight game on the sidelines, and there is still no indication on when he will be able to return. We will go ahead and consider him questionable for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets, but the Jazz will likely err on the side of caution if Hayward isn't 100 percent. Trey Burke will draw the start vs. the Blazers and should be very busy on offense, so owners in daily leagues should give him strong consideration. Rodney Hood (illness) is also out tonight, meaning Elijah Millsap and Joe Ingles should see some increased run as well. Rotoworld.com

    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.

    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.

    Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) is "feeling better" and will play as soon as "the pain subsides," according to coach Kevin McHale.

    Advice: He doesn't have a timetable to return and could miss the rest of the regular season. With Dwight Howard already back and ready to play tonight, Jones seems like a player almost all fantasy owners should cut at this time.

  • Rudy Gay is listed as probable for Wednesday
    Rudy Gay (knee) is listed as probable to play against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: The overwhelming majority of the time this would be a non-issue with the Kings listing a player as probable. Usually, the team won't even update their "probable" players until they announce the starting lineup minutes before a game. However, there's some added risk here with the road game on a back-to-back set. We're still fully expecting Gay to play. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon Hayward (shoulder) still doubtful Wed
    Gordon Hayward (shoulder) was unable to go through shootaround on Wednesday, and he is still considered doubtful to play vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: Hayward has been pretty durable throughout his career, but he is in danger of missing his second straight game. His owners should have a backup plan ready, as the Jazz will likely err on the side of caution if Hayward isn't feeling up to the task. With Rodney Hood out with an illness, Joe Ingles and Elijah Millsap will be busy on the wings, while Trey Burke will have to step up on offense off the bench. Rotoworld.com
    Wednesday, 10:21 am
  • 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

  • Draymond Green two dimes shy of triple-double
    Draymond Green fell two assists shy of a triple-double on Tuesday with 14 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists in 37 minutes, helping Golden State earn a 122-108 win in Portland.

    Advice: He made 6-of-10 shots, including one 3-pointer, while blocking three shots with only two turnovers. Green's jack-of-all-trades play has reduced Golden State's highest-paid player to an afterthought -- David Lee, who is making $15 million this season, picked up another DNP-CD tonight. The Warriors have another favorable four-game schedule on tap next week, solidifying Green as an elite weapon during the fantasy playoffs. Rotoworld.com

  • Rudy Gay's 21 pts help Kings fend off Sixers
    Rudy Gay struggled offensively on Tuesday, making 6-of-19 field goals, but he still finished with 21 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks.

    Advice: Gay is owed a guaranteed $25.7 million over the next two seasons, with a $14.3 million player option in 2017-18, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Kings eventually scale back his playing time in the final few weeks of the season. He logged 41 minutes tonight, however, and has been a dominant fantasy force over the past few weeks with averages of 26.4 points, 1.4 threes, 5.4 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.6 blocks, all with solid percentages.

  • Dion Waiters stays hot w/ 23 points vs Lakers
    Dion Waiters was benched to start the second half of Tuesday's game, but he got hot offensively and finished with 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists and only one turnover in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Anthony Morrow took Waiters' spot with the starters and remains the more valuable fantasy option, regardless of where he begins Wednesday's game in San Antonio. Waiters has been hot offensively over his past few games, however, and is worth plugging into lineup until he cools off. OKC is starting to gain some breathing room as the No. 8 seed in the West, pulling two games ahead of the idle Suns with tonight's 127-117 home win. 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

  • Gordon Hayward (shoulder) doubtful Wednesday
    Gordon Hayward (shoulder) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. Portland.

    Advice: This injury couldn't come at a worse time for owners fighting to make it through the playoffs, but with player development now being prioritized over winning in Utah, the Jazz are not going to rush Hayward back from an injury. If he is unable to go on Wednesday, Joe Ingles would get another game with the starting unit, while Derrick Favors would be asked to step up as the main-man on offense. Trey Burke would also see his shot attempts rise with Hayward on the sidelines. Owners can expect to get another update on Hayward following Wednesday morning's shootaround, so stay tuned for that.

  • 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

    Jason Richardson (rest) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. Sacramento, and Robert Covington will draw the start in his place.

    Advice: It's the first half of a back-to-back set, so Richardson will sit tonight so that he can play Wednesday vs. the Nuggets. Richardson's production has been sporadic, scoring five, six, 14, and two points in his previous four outings. His struggles with consistency, partnered with the fact he will be sitting out games in back-to-back sets makes him a very tough guy to own in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

  • Gordon Hayward misses Tuesday practice
    Gordon Hayward (shoulder) missed Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: While this doesn't mean anything definitive, it certainly casts doubt on Hayward's availability for Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers. With the Jazz having little to play for, we could see them take a cautious approach with their star over the last few weeks of the season. Derrick Favors and Rudy Gobert would see a bump in fantasy value if Hayward sits on Wednesday, while Trey Burke, Rodney Hood, and Joe Ingles would all see a slight value boost as well. Rotoworld.com

    In a departure from what team president Larry Bird recently said, Pacers head coach Frank Vogel said he doesn't think Paul George (leg) is ready to return.

    Advice: While Bird had previously said George is cleared to play, Vogel said that George is cleared to practice. "Well, that's what Larry said. Like I said," Vogel told reporters, "there's a lot of layers to it. He's not ready. He hasn't reached our level of what we feel he's ready to play." While the Pacers are hopeful that George will return this season, fantasy owners are better off using a roster spot on a healthy player that can produce right now. Rotoworld.com

    Advice: He is going to be a bigger part of the offense until Dwight Howard (knee) gets back, which could be as soon as Wednesday.

  • Pacers going day-by-day with Paul George
    Larry Bird told ESPN that he thinks Paul George (leg) has been cleared to play, but he stopped short of saying George was going to play again this season.

    Advice: He will not play on Monday, and to be clear, Bird wants George to get back out there if he can. "I think he has to go through a series of tests this week, just like we’ve always been doing to see where he’s at. I think he’s cleared by the doctors to play, but obviously he’s not in shape. Just because he’s cleared to play, doesn’t mean he’s in shape to play. And I don’t want Paul to go out there until he feels comfortable with his conditioning and the way he’s practicing. I’d like to see him do a little bit better." It sounds like a very nebulous situation with lots of moving parts, and nobody is certain what will come next despite everyone doing their best to guess. The Pacers and George are taking this day-by-day, and the sooner everyone else in the world can realize that's how it's going to be—and should be—the better. Rotoworld.com

    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.

    Advice: He's had fantasy-worthy moments this season but March hasn't been kind to him, as he's limping along with averages of 10.6 points on 36.6 percent FGs and 52.0 percent FTs, 1.1 threes, 5.2 boards, 2.8 assists and 0.9 steals.

    Jason Richardson finished Sunday's road defeat with five points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, three assists and zero defensive stats in 21 minutes.

    Advice: The rebuilding Sixers haven't shied away from starting the 34-year-old Richardson, who hasn't been a fantasy asset despite averaging 22 minutes over his past five games. "It depends on the situation, what team wants me," J-Rich said, when asked about continuing his NBA career next season. "How my knee holds up. God willing, maybe two or three more years."

    Luol Deng cooled off during Sunday's loss with six points on 3-of-7 shooting, four rebounds and three assists in just 28 minutes of action.

    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

I’m my toughest critic. I can’t sleep at night when we don’t win and I play bad. I have to keep telling myself I’ve only played 10 games in two years. Hey, your legs might not be there some nights, so do something else to help this team out." The 76ers have opted to start the veteran SG since he returned from injury and even though he can't play in back-to-back sets, Richardson has averaged 9.4 points per game in 12 appearances.

    Advice: This contradicts a report from ESPN.com's Brian Windhorst from Friday saying George could return in the next week. However, Windhorst has been very credible and cited multiple sources, so Vogel saying George doesn't have a timetable holds a little less weight than Windhorst's report because teams aren't obligated to disclose timetables.

Given this timetable, the earliest we would see Jones back on the court would be on Mar. 27 vs. the Wolves, but we should have another update early next week.

    Advice: If Waiters is going to get this much playing time then he might be worth a look, but chances are that Enes Kanter will return to steal some touches and cap off any theoretic upside that Waiters might have.

    Advice: Deng is clinging to late round value and as a player with all sorts of wear on his tires, owners should be a bit more aggressive in terms of a drop if a mid-to-high level free agent comes their way. Hassan Whiteside went for 14 and 10 with two steals and two blocks, Dwyane Wade scored 22 points with four assists, and Goran Dragic hit 9-of-14 shots for 18 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in the win.

    Paul George is targeting a season debut this week and could debut as soon as Saturday against the Nets, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com.

    Advice: This comes as a surprise with George having a little limp at practice earlier this week. Even if he does return, the Pacers are likely going to handle him with kid gloves and put a minutes cap on him. The Pacers have lost three in a row and have suddenly dropped to the ninth seed in the Eastern Conference. If you want to pick him up, make sure you keep your expectations low. He's far from a must-stash player. Rotoworld.com

  • Terrence Jones out for at least three games
    Terrence Jones (pneumothorax) will miss the next three games due to a partially collapsed lung.

    Advice: He needed to go to the hospital on Thursday night and hopefully he can put this issue behind him soon. The good news is that he didn't crack his rib and the Rockets not ruling him out indefinitely is sort of a good sign. At this point, it's possible we'll see Dwight Howard (knee) return to the court before Jones, so Jones' fantasy owners should strongly consider cutting him. Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith will get more chances to put up numbers while Joey Dorsey starts until Dwight gets back. Dorsey is not a fantasy option. 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

  • 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
