  • Kyrie Irving scores 32 with 12 assists
    Kyrie Irving handed out a season-high 12 assists against the Kings on Monday with 32 points, three rebounds, one block and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: He failed to bust out before tonight because his 3-point shooting wasn't dropping. That wasn't the case tonight as Irving hit 5-of-8 from there in this win. His breakout last year had a lot to do with hitting treys, so expect him to keep it going and improve from a quiet start this season. Rotoworld.com 31 minutes ago
  • Kemba Walker scores 30 points in win
    Kemba Walker scored 30 points with seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals and four 3-pointers during a 108-91 win over the Bulls on Monday.

    Advice: He's having an awesome year and he might be able to get an All-Star nod with Jimmy Butler (knee) possibly not ready to play in Toronto. Walker should be close to a top-20 player going forward. Rotoworld.com 38 minutes ago
  • E'Twaun Moore scores 12 points
    E'Twaun Moore scored 12 points during a 108-91 loss to the Hornets on Monday, adding three rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He was basically the second option in the first unit with Derrick Rose (soreness) and Jimmy Butler (knee) out for tonight. Moore likely only has one more chance to put up a big game on Wednesday, so he's not the greatest fantasy add unless you're dropping dead weight. Rotoworld.com 58 minutes ago
  • Mike Dunleavy gets 16 minutes
    Mike Dunleavy played 16 minutes against the Hornets on Monday with eight points, one rebound, two assists and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He may have played more in the fourth quarter, but the Bulls were blown out tonight. Dunleavy is likely going to have a minutes cap on him for most of this month even though they may need him to play more while Jimmy Butler is out. Dunleavy is more of a 16-team guy going forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:15 pm
  • Nik Stauskas (neck) to the locker room
    Nik Stauskas suffered a neck injury in the fourth quarter on Monday against the Clippers.

    Advice: He was sitting on the court for about 10 seconds before he walked back to the locker room under his own power. Stauskas is likely done for the night, checking out with five points, one rebound and one 3-pointer. He was replaced by Robert Covington. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:00 pm
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) ruled out Monday
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play on Monday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise considering Nelson has no timetable for a return. Leave him on the wire in all leagues and expect Randy Foye to continue to soak up his minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:56 pm
  • Kobe Bryant, Julius Randle will start
    Kobe Bryant (shoulder) and Julius Randle (ankle) will both start vs. the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: Their status was never really in doubt, so they shouldn't have any limitations. Bryant is averaging 28.5 points, 6.5 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 4.8 3-pointers over his last four games, so he needs to be in all lineups until he cools off. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:46 pm
  • DAngelo Russell will play on Monday night
    DAngelo Russell (groin) will play on Monday night against the Pacers.

    Advice: He went through warmups without incident and may not be limited. Russell will come off the bench this week and he could get in the starting lineup later this month. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:40 pm
  • Allen Crabbe (illness) is available Monday
    Allen Crabbe (illness) is available for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: He didn't play on Saturday vs. the Rockets, but he must be feeling better and will likely see close to his normal workload on Monday. If the Blazers decide to limit his minutes as a precaution, Gerald Henderson would benefit. Crabbe is worth a look if you need points and treys. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:34 pm
  • Mike Dunleavy getting the start
    Mike Dunleavye will start against the Hornets on Monday.

    Advice: It's his second game of the season after playing 14 minutes in Saturday. With Jimmy Butler (knee) and Derrick Rose (soreness) out, there might be some shots headed Dunleavy's way. He's still only an option in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:29 pm
  • Trey Burke (illness) will not play Tuesday
    Trey Burke (illness) will not play Tuesday against the Mavs.

    Advice: He has the flu and could miss Wednesday's game as well. Raul Neto should play more in the first unit while Erick Green will be in the rotation. Burke isn't a player worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:26 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) ruled out Monday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) will not play on Monday vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful, so he probably won't play against the 76ers on Wednesday either. With McLemore on the shelf, Marco Belinelli will draw another start and is worth a look if you need 3-pointers. Belinelli has scored in double digits in each of his last four games. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:06 pm
  • Reggie Bullock will play with a mask
    Reggie Bullock will play on Monday with a mask.

    Advice: He suffered a broken nose over the weekend and it shouldn't affect his playing time. He's currently behind Darrun Hillard and Stanley Johnson for shooting guard minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:01 pm
  • Karasev not playing on Monday.
    Sergey Karasev (illness) will not play on Monday against the Nuggets.

    Advice: He's not in the rotation anyway. Leave Karasev on the wire. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:57 pm
  • Wes Johnson getting the start
    Wes Johnson will start against the 76ers on Monday in place of Paul Pierce (rest).

    Advice: He has actually played really well and is putting up early-round value in the last month or so. Johnson should be owned in standard leagues with some added value for tonight. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:48 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova likely out through break
    Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) is out Monday and is unlikely for Wednesday.

    Advice: The Cavs will allow him to rest through the break. With Dellavedova out, Mo Williams should get minutes as Kyrie Irving's backup. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:26 pm
  • Ish Smith (ankle) starting, has 24-minute cap
    Ish Smith (ankle) will start against the Clippers and has a 24-minute restriction.

    Advice: He only needed to miss one game after a Friday ankle sprain. T.J. McConnell will move back to the bench and the two figure to split the minutes at the one. Smith gets a tougher matchup tonight, so he's probably not someone you'll want to use in DFS tonight. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:20 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell (groin) questionable vs. IND
    D'Angelo Russell (groin) is questionable to play against the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: This injury came out of nowhere and he may have suffered the injury on Saturday night. If Russell can't go, there should be more minutes for Lou Williams while Marcelo Huertas could be in the rotation. Jordan Clarkson would also likely see a bigger role if Russell is out. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:36 pm
  • Martin, Garnett and Pekovic out on Monday
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and Kevin Garnett (knee) will not play against the Pelicans on Monday

    Advice: He is probably out through the break, but other teams may want to see Martin get out there on the court before trading for him. Martin is not worth stashing in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:35 pm
  • Colangelo noncommittal on Ish Smith
    Jerry Colangelo is noncommittal on Ish Smith's (ankle) future with the 76ers beyond this season

    Advice: "Where he was picked [an undrafted free agent], because he's bounced around quite a bit, and it's a great story that finally maybe he's landed somewhere where he could do a lot more than fit that description or that role," Colangelo said. "And I think you always have to keep your options open on everything." Smith has an ankle issue that kept him out of his last game, but should be back soon. We should have an update on his status for Monday night against the Clippers later this afternoon. T.J. McConnell would be the biggest winner if Smith sits again. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:35 am
  • Kyle Korver says he's healthy now
    Kyle Korver said he's finally feeling healthy now.

    Advice: "I feel like things have healed, and I'm back and whole," Korver said. "There was, I felt like I missed so many shots for a while, and I think mentally, that does throw you a little bit." Korver hasn't been very good this season and is just outside of the top-150 rankings for his last 12 games. Hopefully, he can be better going forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:29 am
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) doubtful for Mon. night
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. Cleveland.

    Advice: McLemore has really fallen out of favor, and he's not going to play on Monday. Marco Belinelli and Darren Collison will get more run against LeBron James and Co. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:54 am
  • Devin Harris 'highly unlikely' for Tuesday
    Devin Harris (sprained left great toe) is "highly unlikely" to play on Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: It's not a surprise considering the previous Harris update had him (likely) sitting through the All-Star break. While Harris is out, J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will continue to pick up extra time. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:48 am
    Injured
     
  • Ronnie Price (toe) still out for the Suns
    Ronnie Price (toe) remains sidelined for the Suns.

    Advice: Price was originally targeting a return this week, but it seems like the earliest we'll see him again is in late February. He's not a fantasy option in any league, regardless of size or format. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:24 am
  • Emmanuel Mudiay praised by Mike Malone
    Mike Malone praised Emmanuel Mudiay's play in Sunday's win over the Knicks.

    Advice: "I thought Emmanuel Mudiay was terrific, made some huge plays down the stretch," Malone said. "Nine assists, zero turnovers for a 19-year old rookie point guard is outstanding." Mudiay is enjoying his best month of the season so far in February, averaging 12.5 points, 7.0 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.8 triples with just 1.5 turnovers on 36.5 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:50 am
  • Jimmy Butler (knee) feeling 'a lot better'
    Jimmy Butler (knee) is feeling "a lot better," but there is still no timetable for his return.

    Advice: Butler will not play on Monday and is extremely doubtful to return on Wednesday vs. the Hawks, leaving his status for Sunday's All-Star Game up in the air. The good news: It sounds like Butler has a very real chance of resuming fantasy production on the other side of the break, so those with Jimmy on the roster just have to sit tight for now. In the interim, E'Twaun Moore, Tony Snell, Doug McDermott and Mike Dunleavy will all be in the mix for extra run. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:45 am
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) doubtful to play Monday
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: The veteran point guard has no timetable for his return, meaning Randy Foye will continue to serve as Emmanuel Mudiay's backup. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:41 am
  • Scott wants Clarkson to improve in some areas
    Byron Scott wants Jordan Clarkson to improve his perimeter defense, outside shooting and assist-to-turnover ratio and free throw attempts.

    Advice: This news was buried in between Scott praising Clarkson and saying he has the potential to become an All-Star, so let's not get out the pitchforks just yet. These are valid criticisms, as Clarkson needs to gamble less on defense, shoots 34.2 percent from deep, shoots just 2.8 free throws per game and checks in with averages of 2.5 assists compared to 1.8 turnovers. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:32 am
  • Kobe, Randle both expected to play on Monday
    Kobe Bryant (shoulder) and Julius Randle (ankle) are both expected to play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Despite Kobe's questionable tag, he's going to keep playing so long as he doesn't suffer a setback or new injury of any kind. And while Randle's ankle injury looked bad, he quickly shook it off and wasn't in real danger of missing any time. Both will be in the starting lineup as the Lakers take on Roy Hibbert's (ankle, questionable) old team on Monday. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:00 am
  • Matthew Dellavedova out again on Monday night
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. Sacramento.

    Advice: Delly's absence means Mo Williams will continue to remain in the rotation, but only as a backup to a healthy Kyrie Irving. Leave Williams on the waiver wire in your fantasy league. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:19 am
  • Parker to play in Olympic Qualifying Tourney
    Tony Parker plans to play in the Olympic Qualifying Tournament with the French National Team.

    Advice: While this won't directly impact Parker's fantasy contributions this season, it's a reminder that he's going to be playing this summer, which may have an impact on his start at the beginning of the 2016-17 campaign. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:24 am
  • Lance Thomas (concussion) could return Tues.
    Lance Thomas (concussion) could return on Tuesday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: He might, he might not. Either way, Thomas isn't a fantasy option with Carmelo Anthony (knee), Langston Galloway and Derrick Williams all available. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:54 am
  • Dunleavy confident conditioning will come
    Mike Dunleavy, who made his season debut on Saturday, is confident that his conditioning will improve sooner rather than later.

    Advice: "It's going to be a progression, build it up slowly," Dunleavy said. "I think [game condition] will come sooner rather than later. I put a lot of work in, feel pretty good about it. I'll be good." Dunleavy played just 14 minutes in his inaugural game, but his playing time will creep up so long as he doesn't have any setbacks after offseason surgery. When it does, he'll take minutes from Tony Snell, E'Twaun Moore and Doug McDermott. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:48 am
  • Jimmy Butler (knee) out Monday, doubtful Wed
    Jimmy Butler (strained knee) will not play Monday and he will "likely" miss Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Butler met with a team physician on Sunday but the Bulls have not provided an update on his status, and it's unclear whether he'll suit up for the All-Star game. Barring a positive update after Monday's shootaround, owners in weekly leagues should keep Butler on their benches heading into the break. E'Twaun Moore had 17 points, three 3-pointers and seven assists as a starter on Saturday, and he's worth a look as a punt play in DFS. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:21 pm
  • Kyle Korver scores 10 points with two treys
    Kyle Korver scored 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Magic, adding six rebounds, two 3-pointers, two steals, one block and two turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Korver just hasn’t been the same player during his age-34 season, and that is perhaps a combination of two offseason surgeries and the 12-year veteran entering the downward slope of his career. He’s shooting just 42.1 percent from the field, which is his worst shooting percentage since his sophomore season, and it doesn’t seem likely he’ll be able to be anything more than a late-round guy in standard leagues this year. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:33 pm
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) questionable for Monday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Martin has spent the past six games on the sidelines, but perhaps the Timberwolves will look to showcase him against a team that could really use a two-guard. If he plays, he'll cut into Zach LaVine's minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:09 pm
  • Allen Crabbe (illness) questionable Monday
    Allen Crabbe (illness) is questionable to play Monday vs. Memphis.

    Advice: Crabbe is dealing with a stomach bug, and if he can't give it a go on Monday, it'll be Gerald Henderson and Moe Harkless picking up some extended run. Check back for another update on Crabbe following Monday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:58 am
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play Sunday
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play on Sunday vs. the Knicks as expected.

    Advice: He has no timetable for a return and likely won't play until after the All-Star break. Emmanuel Mudiay is locked in for heavy minutes vs. the Knicks, while Randy Foye will back him up off the bench. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 am
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) will not play Sunday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) will not play on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He was listed as doubtful and never really had a shot at seeing the court today. Marco Belinelli will benefit the most, while James Anderson and Darren Collison will see a few more minutes as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:58 am
  • Lance Thomas (concussion) out Sunday
    Lance Thomas (concussion) will not play on Sunday vs. the Nuggets as expected.

    Advice: He was never expected to play and still has to pass the league's concussion protocol. His next chance to play will be on Tuesday vs. the Wizards. Langston Galloway will continue to see a few extra minutes in Thomas' absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:27 am
  • Kobe Bryant and Roy Hibbert are questionable
    Kobe Bryant (shoulder) and Roy Hibbert (ankle) are questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Bryant has been on fire over his last four games with averages of 28.5 points, 6.5 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 4.8 3-pointers, so it would be a shame if he was forced to sit out. If he isn't able to play, Anthony Brown would draw the start, but Lou Williams, Jordan Clarkson and D'Angelo Russell would benefit the most. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:34 am
  • Scott wishes Russell was 'further along'
    Lakers coach Byron Scott said that he was hoping D'Angelo Russell would be "a tad further along" in his development.

    Advice: "[He's] just kind of figuring that out. I still see him progressing but I was hoping that he'd just be a tad further along," Scott said. "Defensively, I was hoping he'd be a tad further along on the ball as well as off the ball. But those are things I look back from training camp until now — he's gotten so much better in a lot of those areas. He knows and I know he still has a long way to go in those areas as well." Scott has been incredibly hard on Russell all season, but the good news is that he will get the chance to start and close out games after the All-Star break. Stick with him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:31 am
  • Nelson believes Mudiay is getting better
    Jameer Nelson can tell that Emmanuel Mudiay is getting more comfortable on the court.

    Advice: "He’s getting better," Nelson said. "You see him over there right now watching film, trying to get better. Every time he steps on the court it’s a learning experience for him, something he’s never been through. He’s doing a lot better job of controlling the game and running the team, taking care of the ball as well." Mudiay's rookie season has been up and down, but he's averaging 13.2 points, 6.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.8 turnovers over his last five games which is definitely a sign of progress. He's still better suited for points leagues, though. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:22 am
  • Jimmy Butler returned to action on Friday February 5. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:55 pm
  • Tony Parker scores 14 points in win
    Tony Parker finally broke out of his slump with 14 points, four assists, two boards and one steal in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Parker was held to single-digit points in his previous three games, but take tonight's performance with a grain of salt considering the opponent. The Spurs will have every reason to be cautious with Parker down the stretch after watching Manu Ginobili (hernia) and Tim Duncan (knee) pick up injuries, so he's a low-end option at best. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:39 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell plays just 23 minutes
    D'Angelo Russell played just 23 minutes on Saturday vs. the Spurs, scoring 12 points with two assists, two boards, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He had a couple of great sequences in the second half, but coach Byron Scott once again did not play him down the stretch. However, Scott did say after the game that Russell would get the chance to start and close out games after the All-Star break, so better days are ahead for his owners. He's still a hold in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:12 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 21 in loss
    Jordan Clarkson dropped 21 points in Saturday's loss to the Spurs, adding six boards, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

    Advice: The best part of his line was his efficiency, as he hit 9-of-14 shots from the field, 2-of-2 from the line and 1-of-2 from 3-point range with just one turnover. Coach Byron Scott said that Clarkson has the potential to be an All-Star, and the young guard could have some massive offers waiting for him when he hits restricted free agency this summer. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:08 pm
  • Kobe Bryant scores 25 points vs. the Spurs
    Kobe Bryant scored 25 points on 9-of-28 shooting in Saturday's loss to the Spurs, adding four assists, one board, one block and four 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: To his credit, Bryant kept the Lakers in this one until the very end, as the Spurs surprisingly only won by four points. The Black Mamba has been lethal over his last four games with averages of 28.5 points, 6.5 boards, 3.5 assists, 1.5 steals and 4.8 3-pointers. He needs to be in all lineups until he cools off, but his owners should really consider selling high. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:04 pm
  • E'Twaun Moore scores 17 points
    E'Twaun Moore scored 17 points with two rebounds, seven assists and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

    Advice: He's playing his best ball in a very long time. Moore looks like he's the beneficiary of Jimmy Butler (knee) missing time, but he hasn't been consistent and Butler could be back after the break. Unless you have dead weight, there's no need to be aggressive on Moore. Although, if you have Butler and need insurance, he's worth a look in 16-team leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:49 pm
  • Mike Dunleavy scores five in debut
    Mike Dunleavy made his season debut on Saturday with five points, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 14 minutes against the Wolves.

    Advice: It wasn't a bad game for a guy who hasn't played in an NBA game in about nine months. Dunleavy is still only worth a look in deep leagues, especially with Jimmy Butler (knee) not dealing with a serious injury. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:45 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 29 points in win
    Kyrie Irving scored a game-high 29 points during a 99-84 win over the Pelicans on Saturday, adding four rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: His usage rate is just a shade below 32 when he's next to LeBron James and Kevin Love (quad) is off the floor, so this production isn't a surprise. Irving's owners are still waiting for his 3-point shooting to come around and he made just 3-of-9 from there tonight. It won't be long until he puts it all together. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:04 pm
  • Kemba Walker scores 23 points vs. Wizards
    Kemba Walker scored 23 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers against the Wizards on Saturday.

    Advice: He did look hobbled momentarily in the second half, but there was no sign of him receiving medical attention. Walker is back in the swing of things in no time after getting his knee drained on Wednesday with a 20-point game coming on Friday. Expect him to maintain his status as a top-25 player going forward. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:40 pm
  • Mike Dunleavy will make his season debut
    Mike Dunleavy (back) will make his season debut against the Wolves on Saturday.

    Advice: He said "I'm back" at his locker, so Mike apparently wants to be like Mike. His minutes should be limited with so much time away from NBA game action, so he's not someone worth owning in most leagues just yet. His return takes away from E'Twaun Moore and Tony Snell. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:06 pm
  • Mike Dunleavy (back) is a game-time call
    Mike Dunleavy (back) is a game-time call vs. the Wolves on Saturday.

    Advice: Dunleavy admitted that he battled some soreness on Friday, so that's a little concerning since he hasn't even made his debut yet. If he is cleared to play, the Bulls will ease him back into action and his minutes will be limited. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:37 pm
  • Martin, Pekovic and Garnett out Saturday
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (foot, ankle) will not play on Saturday against the Bulls.

    Advice: These guys are not close to a return. Martin may have played his last minutes with the Wolves as the trade deadline approaches. Zach LaVine will get close to 30 minutes tonight and is worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:36 pm
  • Jimmy Butler (knee) did not suffer tear
    Jimmy Butler (left knee) was diagnosed with a knee strain and did not suffer damage to his ligaments.

    Advice: This is great news, but he is out Friday and Saturday. The diagnosis of a strain means it's something muscle related or it could be something with a tendon near his joint. Butler doesn't have a timetable to return, but it looks like he at least has a chance to be back this month. This may hurt his chance to play in the All-Star Game. Mike Dunleavy (back) should benefit while E'Twaun Moore and Tony Snell could help out. Derrick Rose will be very busy, too. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:10 pm
  • Ish Smith (ankle) out, McConnell gets a start
    Ish Smith (ankle) will not play against the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: Smith tweaked his ankle in the last 90 seconds of a blowout on Friday, so the 76ers will keep him out in a very important game to lose for tanking purposes. Expect Smith to be ready to go next week. Besides McConnell, there could be some Kendall Marshall at the point tonight. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:56 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova out again on Saturday
    Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: His hamstring issue has been a problem for two weeks and the Cavs may rest him until the break. Mo Williams will be in the rotation again while this news also helps Iman Shumpert because of no Kevin Love. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:55 pm
  • Ben McLemore doubtful for Sunday
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is doubtful to play against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: He only played 12 minutes in his return from a wrist injury on Friday, so maybe his wrist injury wasn't healed all the way. Assuming Darren Collison's minor knee issue is fine, he should benefit the most along with Marco Belinelli in the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:49 pm
  • Allen Crabbe (illness) out against Rockets
    Allen Crabbe (illness) will miss Saturday's game against the Rockets.

    Advice: He showed up at the arena with an illness and he is officially inactive. That should mean more minutes for Gerald Henderson and Moe Harkless. If you have Crabbe in your DFS lineup, you might need to swap him out. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:08 pm
  • Mike Dunleavy (back) is questionable
    Mike Dunleavy (back) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: He has been targeting this game for his return, so he will likely make a decision after warming up with the team. His return can't come soon enough with Jimmy Butler going down with a knee injury, but he's only on the radar in deeper leagues for now. His minutes should be pretty limited if he's cleared to play. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:21 am
  • Jimmy Butler (knee) ruled out Saturday
    Jimmy Butler (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: He is reportedly dealing with a hyperextended left knee, but the Bulls still haven't released the results of his MRI. Until then, he should be considered day-to-day. Derrick Rose, Tony Snell and E'Twaun Moore will all have to step up in Butler's absence. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:19 am
  • Martin, Garnett and Pekovic are all doubtful
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett and Nikola Pekovic (foot) are all doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: To be clear, none of them will play and the Wolves should've just listed them as out. Martin may not play again until the trade deadline, and by that by point he might be wearing a different uniform. He's not worth stashing in most leagues, while Zach LaVine will continue to benefit in his absence. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:34 am
  • Ish Smith sprained his ankle on Friday
    Ish Smith said that he sprained his left ankle on Friday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: "I don't know," Smith said when asked if he would play on Saturday vs. the Nets. "I should be fine. I should be, but I just rolled it, sprained it." We will consider him questionable to play, but his availability will likely depend on whether or not his ankle swelled up on him overnight. If Smith is held out, expect T.J. McConnell and Isaiah Canaan to benefit. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:09 am
  • Scott says Clarkson can become an All-Star
    Byron Scott said that Jordan Clarkson has the potential to become an All-Star.

    Advice: "Hopefully in the next couple of years, he keeps progressing," Scott said. "When it’s his fourth or fifth year in this league, hopefully he’s one of those guys that you can look at as possibly being an All-Star." Clarkson will be a restricted free agent this summer, but he recently expressed his desire to stay in Los Angeles. "I definitely want to be here in LA and be a part of this young group and grow," Clarkson said. "Hopefully we can grow into something great. I love L.A." Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:48 am
  • Lakers have reduced Kobe's workload
    Lakers coach Byron Scott said that Kobe Bryant's workload in practice has been reduced so that he can be fresh for games.

    Advice: "Less work has been better because his legs are fresh, especially the last couple of weeks," Scott said. "He has a different pep in his step." Bryant sat out of Friday's practice, but his status for Saturday's game vs. the Spurs isn't in doubt. He's averaging 29.3 points and 5.0 3-pointers over his last three games, so he's worth deploying in all lineups until he cools off. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:44 am
  • Kemba had his left knee drained Wednesday
    Kemba Walker had his left knee drained on Wednesday.

    Advice: He sat out of Wednesday's game vs. the Cavaliers due to the procedure, but he returned on Friday vs. the Heat and looked great, scoring 20 points in 36 minutes. Walker's knee issue doesn't appear to be too serious, but it's something to keep an eye on if the Hornets fall out of the playoff hunt. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:35 am
  • Trey Burke (flu) not traveling to Phoenix
    Trey Burke (flu-like symptoms) will not be traveling with the team to Phoenix for Saturday's game.

    Advice: While Burke could technically catch a later flight to Arizona, it seems much more likely that he'll spend Saturday's game on the sidelines, which would result in heavy minutes for Rodney Hood and Raul Neto. Hood will get an extremely favorable matchup tomorrow, and he'd be someone to target in DFS. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:37 pm
  • Tony Parker scores nine points in 25 minutes
    Tony Parker scored just nine points on 4-of-8 shooting during Friday's blowout victory over the Mavs, with two assists, two boards, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Gregg Popovich has made monitoring his 33-year-old point guard's minutes a thing at the mid-way point of the season, and over the past month Parker has produced just 15th round value in 9-cat leagues behind averages of 11.3 points, 4.8 assists and 2.0 turnovers while receiving just 26.4 minutes a night. Parker is a prime candidate for random rest days down the stretch, making him an unattractive asset in most formats. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:31 pm
  • Emmanuel Mudiay scores 22 points in win
    Emmanuel Mudiay scored 22 points with five assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

    Advice: That's a pretty decent line and Mudiay is starting to show some life. Still, he still hasn't put up top-150 value in his last 10 games and his upside in standard leagues is undesirable. He is becoming a better points league and DFS option, though. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:03 pm
  • E'Twaun Moore scores eight points
    E'Twaun Moore scored eight points with three rebounds and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Nuggets during a 115-110 loss on Friday.

    Advice: He went bonkers with 24 points, but he didn't step up with Jimmy Butler (knee) going down. With Mike Dunleavy (back) set to return, fantasy owners can take a wait-and-see approach on Moore. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:59 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 19 points with six dimes
    Kyrie Irving scored 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting during Friday's loss to the Celtics, adding three rebounds, six assists and two turnovers in 37 minutes of action.

    Advice: Irving is slowly but surely working his way up in the rankings, and over the past two weeks he's been producing sixth-round value behind averages of 19.4 points, 4.4 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.9 turnovers on 47.4 percent shooting. He has first-round upside, and the Cavs have one of the best playoff schedules out there, so Uncle Drew qualifies as a solid buy-low candidate. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:48 pm
  • Report: Jimmy Butler hyperextended left knee?
    Jimmy Butler reportedly hyperextended his left knee, and while he'll likely sit out Saturday's game vs. the Timberwolves there's a chance he can play Monday vs. Charlotte or Wednesday vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: Butler is going to get an MRI on Saturday morning, but this report is great news if it turns out to be true. Owners can expect another update tomorrow morning, but with Jimmy likely sidelined on Saturday, Tony Snell figures to enter the starting five with E'Twuan Moore seeing some increased opportunity on offense. Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol (hand) will be busy on offense for however long Jimmy Buckets is out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:41 pm
  • Jimmy Butler (knee) will have an MRI on Sat
    Fred Hoiberg said that Jimmy Butler will have an MRI on his sprained left knee on Saturday, and added that the Bulls will need to prepare to play without Butler "for a while no matter what."

    Advice: Hoiberg did say that the ligaments in Butler's left knee are "intact," but Jimmy said he heard a "pop" in his knee and it would be shocking to see him suit up for Saturday's game in Minnesota. Butler exited the arena on crutches and could be looking at a potentially looking at a lengthy absence, so E'Twaun Moore is someone to consider as a speculative add in deep leagues, while more minutes will be falling to guys like Doug McDermott and Tony Snell. Derrick Rose and Pau Gasol (hand) will be doing the heavy lifting on offense for however long Butler is out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:09 pm
  • McLemore has another bad game
    Ben McLemore scored five points with two assists and one steal in 12 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He is losing playing time and it's not because of his wrist injury. Unless the Kings really start unloading players, McLemore can be ignored in almost all leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:50 pm
  • Ish Smith scores 22 points with five dimes
    Ish Smith made 11-of-25 from the field for 22 points with five rebounds, five assists, three steals and one block in 32 minutes during a 106-94 loss to the Wizards on Friday.

    Advice: That's a lot of usage, but the efficiency wasn't too bad despite no makes from deep. Smith's lack of efficiency has put him near top-150 value, but he's close to top 50 if you don't care about percentages. His value has a lot to do with the construction of your team, so keep that in mind if you have Ish and your trade deadline is approaching. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:32 pm
  • Kemba Walker scores 20 in return
    Kemba Walker scored 20 points against the Heat on Friday with five rebounds, six assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He played 36 minutes and there were no signs of limitations. Walker's knee injury is more of the wear-and-tear variety, so he probably just needs to make it to the break unscathed to get close to 100 percent. He sitting pretty as a top-20 player this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:57 pm
  • Trey Burke (illness) will not return Friday
    Trey Burke (flu-like symptoms) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Burke will finish his evening with just one rebound and one assist to his credit, and we're going to consider him questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Suns. If he's out tomorrow, Rodney Hood will likely get all the run he can handle. Burke's game translates better to points formats, but he's not worth owning in standard 8-cat and 9-cat leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:52 pm
  • Jimmy Butler (left knee) will not return Fri
    Jimmy Butler (left knee sprain) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Butler was carted off the court, although he was able to walk from the X-ray room to the locker room under his own power, and was in relatively good spirits saying, "Ya'll get me the Forrest Gump knee brace!" Butler is likely headed for an MRI, and for now, we'll be considering him doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Timberwolves. Tony Snell started the second-half in Butler's place, and with Buckets sidelined there will be more opportunity for Derrick Rose and E'Twaun Moore. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:42 pm
  • Jimmy Butler (left leg) gets carted off
    Jimmy Butler suffered a left leg injury and was carted off the court in Denver on Friday.

    Advice: He had a bad collision with Joffrey Lauvergne and had a really ugly fall. Butler was put in a wheelchair for a few seconds, but he got up to shoot the free throws. He did not put much weight on his leg as he was put into the wheelchair again. We'll look for an update shortly, but this does not look good. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:18 pm
  • Trey Burke (nausea) heads to locker room
    Trey Burke left Friday's game with a case of nausea, and he is questionable to return.

    Advice: He's going to be re-evaluated after half-time, so we'll have another update then. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:00 pm
  • Wes Johnson blocks four shots
    Wes Johnson blocked four shots against the Magic on Friday with five points and five boards.

    Advice: There is nothing wrong with coming off the bench and Johnson is developing a knack for doing something nice on the stat sheet. He should be owned in standard leagues right now with third-round value in his last eight. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:56 pm
  • Devin Harris likely out until All-Star break
    Devin Harris (toe) isn't likely to get back on the court until after the All-Star break.

    Advice: Friday will mark Harris' seventh straight game on the sidelines, and he still hasn't been able to practice with the team. He's currently experiencing nerve issues in his left big toe, and there's no telling when he'll be able to get back on the court. J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will continue to pick up some extra minutes in Harris' absence, and Harris belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:04 pm
    Injured
     
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) questionable Saturday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is officially questionable to play vs. the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: Martin has missed six straight games, he hasn't logged 30 minutes in a contest since early December, and Sam Mitchell said recently that he wasn't close to returning. The Wolves' only incentive to play him at less than 100 percent would be to showcase him for a potential trade -- he's not a desirable fantasy asset unless he lands in an ideal situation. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:44 pm
  • Jimmy Butler (knee) starting vs. DEN Friday
    Jimmy Butler (knee tendinitis) will start Friday's game vs. the Nuggets, as expected.

    Advice: Pau Gasol is out tonight and the Bulls are opting to start Cameron Bairstow, so Jimmy should be even busier than usual offensively. Make sure he's looked into your active lineups. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:33 pm
  • Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) iffy Saturday
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) won't play on Friday and he's questionable to return vs. the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: Tyronn Lue suggested prior to Friday's game that Dellavedova might not be ready to face New Orleans, which isn't a good sign. Mo Williams is picking up a handful of minutes in Delly's absence, but he's not a viable fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:25 pm
  • Lance Thomas (concussion) out until Tuesday
    Lance Thomas (mild concussion) will not play until at least Tuesday as he undergoes testing, which means he'll miss games on Friday or Sunday.

    Advice: With Carmelo Anthony (knee) also on the sidelines, the Knicks are going small with Langston Galloway in the starting lineup on Friday. Derrick Williams should also play big minutes off the bench, however, and he's worth a long look as a cheap DFS play until Melo and/or Thomas return to action. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:52 pm
  • Kemba Walker (knee) ready to go vs. Miami
    Kemba Walker (knee) will start without any limitations vs. the Heat on Friday.

    Advice: Walker's return sends Jeremy Lin to the bench, where Lin is averaging 10 fewer minutes with lower stats across the board. Kemba's owners can breathe a sigh of relief while activating him in all lineups. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:24 pm
  • Kobe Bryant expected to play on Saturday
    Kobe Bryant missed practice on Friday and is fully expected to play on Saturday against the Spurs.

    Advice: It's his last road game in San Antonio, so it would be a big surprise to see him out. Bryant is on fire in his last two games and he might be someone to use in DFS for the first time. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:09 pm
  • Martin, Garnett & Pekovic not close to return
    Coach Sam Mitchell said the Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle, foot) are not close to returning.

    Advice: "I love the way we're playing right now," Mitchell said. In other words, those guys are basically out of the rotation. This is terrific news for Zach LaVine and Gorgui Dieng. Martin is on the trade block for next to nothing and will need to be dealt to have value. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:30 am
  • Devin Harris (toe) has begun shooting again
    Devin Harris (toe) visited a specialist in New York and said that he's still experiencing nerve issues in his toe.

    Advice: The guard has missed the last six games, but he was able to resume light shooting on Friday. He doesn't have any pain when he's barefoot, but the nerve issues begin when he puts his shoe on. There is no timetable set for Harris' return, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues. Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea will continue to fill the void off the bench for the Mavs. In addition to Friday's game vs. the Spurs, Harris will also not play on Saturday vs. the Grizzlies. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:28 am
    Injured
     
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) has no timetable
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) still doesn't have a clear timetable to return.

    Advice: "I'm just waiting on some things to get resolved to see what's next, what's best for it and how we approach the next step," Nelson said. "I'm always going to be honest with Coach, the organization and the training staff. I just told them I was hurting." The veteran has already missed eight games because of his wrist this season, so the Nuggets won't rush him back. Emmanuel Mudiay and Randy Foye will continue to pick up the slack in his absence. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:53 am
  • Kemba Walker (knee) expects to play Friday
    Kemba Walker (knee) said that he expects to play on Friday vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Walker said on Thursday that the soreness in his knee is better, and it should be comforting for his owners to know that an MRI came back clean. Walker shouldn't be too limited if he's cleared to play, so fire him up in all lineups. Jeremy Lin is expected to return to the bench where his value will take a sizable hit. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:24 am
  • Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) out Friday
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play on Friday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: This will be his second straight game on the shelf and the Cavs shouldn't be in any hurry to rush him back. Mo Williams played just 11 minutes on Wednesday as the backup point guard, so there's no real reason to consider him outside of deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:06 am
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) is probable
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is probable to play the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday, but coach George Karl decided to bring him off the bench behind Marco Belinelli and he only saw a total of 18 minutes. For now, McLemore is only on the radar in very deep leagues as he isn't very involved in the offense. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:18 am
  • Allen Crabbe scores 17 points
    Allen Crabbe scored 17 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Raptors on Thursday.

    Advice: He's been terrific and the Cal product is really going to put some pressure on the Blazers this summer when it comes time to sign him. Crabbe has sixth-round value in standard leagues in 2016, so he's worth owning right now. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:20 pm
  • Kobe Bryant scores 27; Lakers win again
    Kobe Bryant scored 27 points during a 99-96 win over the Pelicans on Thursday, adding 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: His rebounds were a season high and he's back to shooting the ball well after his 38-point gem on Tuesday. The Lakers are now on a two-game winning streak and look to be playing better. This is actually bad news for next year with their top-three protected pick. Kobe has been great, but expect him to rest here and there. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:09 pm
  • D'Angelo Russel scores 13 points
    D'Angelo Russell scored 13 points with three rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

    Advice: Coach Bryon Scott always likes to handle his rookie point guards carefully, but he's been more open and critical about it this year -- the Twitter age probably doesn't help. Russell is fully expected to start later this month or in March, so keep him stashed with hopes the Lakers dump some players. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:03 pm
  • Lance Thomas gets six stitches
    Lance Thomas returned on Thursday after receiving six stitches for a lip laceration.

    Advice: He's fine and he didn't need a concussion test. Thomas scored nine points with one rebound and one assist in 31 minutes. He's lost most of his fantasy value while the team is healthy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:36 pm
  • Kemba Walker (knee) practices, likely vs. MIA
    Kemba Walker (knee) practiced on Thursday and is expecting to play against the Heat on Friday.

    Advice: He said the soreness in his knee is better, which has been bothering him for over a week -- that means it wasn't because of his fall in Portland on Saturday. Walker also had an MRI and that came back clean. For now, expect him to be in the lineup on Friday. The Hornets are awesome with updates, so expect more info Friday morning. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:33 pm
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) out Friday vs. Chicago
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Chicago.

    Advice: Nelson doesn't have a clear return date, and he's a pretty low-upside guy to own with Emmanuel Mudiay healthy. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:23 pm
  • Mike Dunleavy (back) out Friday vs. Denver
    Mike Dunleavy (back) will not play Friday vs. the Nuggets, as expected.

    Advice: He's targeting a return to the court for Saturday's matchup vs. the Timberwolves, and his imminent return to action will result in less minutes for E'Twaun Moore, Tony Snell and Doug McDermott. Dunleavy will likely be brought along very slowly, so he's not a great add in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:04 pm
  • Devin Harris (toe) ruled out for Friday
    Devin Harris (left toe) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: It doesn't seem likely that Harris will be able to play Saturday vs. the Grizzlies either, and it'll be Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea picking up some extra run in his absence. Harris belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:49 am
    Injured
     
  • Ronnie Price due back next week for Suns
    Ronnie Price, who has missed 12 games due to toe surgery, could return to action for the Suns next week.

    Advice: Price's return could have an impact on Archie Goodwin and Devin Booker, but we doubt it will be big enough to cause a panic if you own them. Price is also not a player we're interested in telling you to pick up, unless you're in a 30-team league, and then it might even be a stretch. But with Brandon Knight likely out through the All-Star break, Price could see some decent minutes off the bench in order to keep Goodwin and Booker fresh. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:31 am
  • Kemba Walker (knee) questionable for Friday
    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Walker was forced to miss his first game of the season on Wednesday with a sore left knee, which resulted in Jeremy Lin logging 32 minutes in a start. If Walker sits again on Friday, it'll be Jeremy Lin again in the starting five with Brian Roberts and Jeremy Lamb earning some extended run off the bench. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:12 am
  • Kobe Bryant will play vs Pelicans on Thursday
    Kobe Bryant (shoulder) will play against the Pelicans on Thursday.

    Advice: Bryant is still struggling with with his shoulder injury, but is coming off a season-high of 38 points on Tuesday. While Bryant makes for a solid start on Thursday, his return will cut into the minutes of Lou Williams and D'Angelo Russell. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:59 am
  • Mike Dunleavy set to return on Saturday
    Mike Dunleavy (back) is set to return against the Timberwolves on Saturday, according to league sources.

    Advice: Dunleavy had been practicing with Santa Cruz of the D-League, but is set to make his season debut on Saturday as long as he doesn't experience any setbacks. While Dunleavy isn't an add outside of deeper fantasy leagues, his return will cut into the minutes of Tony Snell and E'Twaun Moore. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:07 am
  • Wes Johnson scores 12 in nice line
    Wesley Johnson scored 12 points with three rebounds, one assist, two blocks, three steals and three 3-pointers against the Wolves on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has a little Tony Allen to his fantasy game with the steals while he's been very good at connecting on treys. Before this game, 81.6 percent of Johnson's shots in his last five are without a dribble, so he's getting a lot of help from Chris Paul. He's put up third-round value in his last seven, so he's worth owning. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:22 pm
  • E'Twaun Moore scores career-high 24 points
    E'Twaun Moore scored a career-high 24 points against the Kings on Wednesday during a 107-102 win, adding five rebounds, four assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Who needs Jimmy Butler (knee)? The Bulls players have been lobbying for Moore to start and he came through. As nice as this game is, Mike Dunleavy (back) is set to play on Saturday and Butler is only day-to-day for now. Congrats if you used him tonight, but don't be aggressive on adding him for value going forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:11 pm
  • Ben McLemore plays 18 minutes
    Ben McLemore (wrist) returned from a one-game absence on Wednesday against the Bulls, scoring five points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: The Kings bench wasn't hurt too badly tonight and McLemore played a well-rounded game. While he was showing some improvement thanks to a season-high 26 on Thursday, there's still no reason to add him. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:47 pm
  • Trey Burke gets just 16 minutes in win
    Trey Burke played just 16 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, finishing with just two points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal, as he hit just 1-of-4 shots.

    Advice: Burke hasn't cracked the 20-minute mark in four straight games and as long as that's the case, he's not worth having in your lineup. He could easily make a comeback at any time this season, but starting PG Raul Neto is eating up his minutes these days, along with other Jazz role players. Even guard Erick Green saw a season-high three minutes tonight and played in the first half. And in case you're wondering, Neto is not a guy you want to be looking to own right now, despite the decent run. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:59 pm
  • Nik Stauskas scores 17 points w/ two triples
    Nik Stauskas logged 30 minutes during Wednesday's blowout loss, scoring a team-high 17 points on 5-of-7 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs, with two 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: Stauskas has back-to-back games in double figures for the first time since November, an indication of his spotty play this season. He's worth a look if you need a 3-point specialist, in the hopes that he stays hot and keeps the starting SG job, but most owners should take the wait-and-see approach. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:25 pm
  • Ish Smith dishes seven assists in ugly loss
    Ish Smith dished out seven assists vs. the Hawks, adding seven points, three rebounds, one steal and two turnovers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: This game got out of hand early and Brett Brown wound up playing all 13 available players, 10 of whom logged 15+ minutes. Inefficiency has taken a toll on Smith's roto value, but he's been top-60 value in points leagues since Jan. 1. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:24 pm
  • Kyle Korver plays 19 minutes in blowout
    Kyle Korver scored five points in 19 minutes of action vs. the 76ers on Wednesday, hitting 2-of-3 shots with one 3-pointer, three assists and three turnovers.

    Advice: Korver can't seem to sustain any momentum this season and he didn't get many opportunities tonight, as the Hawks' starters earned plenty of rest in the blowout win -- Korver sat out the final 16 minutes tonight. He should get a lot more run on Friday vs. the visiting Pacers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:18 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores team-high 26 points
    Kyrie Irving led the Cavs on Wednesday with 26 points (10-of-17 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), five assists, one rebound and one steal, but it wasn't enough to extend the Cavs' five-game win streak.

    Advice: Irving has now notched four straight games with 20+ points and his playing time is up, so fantasy owners should be very comfortable heading into the All-Star break. It helps that Kyrie and the Cavs have a delicious playoff schedule -- they're one of four teams with four-game slates in Weeks 20-23. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:10 pm
  • Martin, Garnett and Pekovic all out vs. Clips
    Kevin Martin (wrist), Kevin Garnett (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (foot) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The severity of Martin's injury isn't known, but he might not even be in the rotation upon his return anyway. Leave him on the wire. Zach LaVine should get 30 minutes or so and is worth holding in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:09 pm
  • Mike Dunleavy (back) hopeful for weekend
    Mike Dunleavy (back) is hopeful to return over the weekend.

    Advice: The Bulls get some good news here and they might need Dun-Dun if Jimmy Butler (knee) needs to miss more time. Dunleavy isn't the strongest add and he'll have his minutes monitored, but give him a look in very deep leagues. This means less run for E'Twaun Moore and Tony Snell, assuming Butler is back. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:52 pm
  • McLemore off the bench, Belinelli starting
    Ben McLemore (wrist) will come off the bench against the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Advice: Marco Belinelli will stick in the starting lineup. McLemore was actually playing well before his injury and he did look good in shootaround. This move does slightly help Belinelli, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:22 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play
    Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) will not play against the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is going to rest his bothersome hamstring and it sounds like it's precautionary. The Cavs figure to get Mo Williams back in the rotation tonight, but he's not a reliable fantasy option unless you are hoping for garbage time against a shorthanded Hornets team. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:57 pm
  • Matt Dellavedova (hamstring) a game-time call
    Matthew Dellavedova (hamstring) is a game-time decision to face the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has been fighting the issue for a week and only played 12 minutes on Monday, so perhaps this hamstring issue explains why. The Cavs don't need Dellavedova too much right now and could opt to throw Mo Williams back in the rotation. We'll have another update shortly. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:39 pm
  • Kobe Bryant (shoulder) questionable vs. NO
    Kobe Bryant (shoulder) is questionable to face the Pelicans on Thursday.

    Advice: It's a road game, so Kobe has a slightly higher chance to play than usual because he hasn't missed a game away from Staples in 2016. Kobe did hoist a ton of shots in his 38-point gem on Tuesday, so it's anyone's guess o his status. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:15 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) goes through shootaround
    Ben McLemore (wrist) went through shootaround on Wednesday and is still questionable.

    Advice: He did plenty of shooting and this report adds he looked good. McLemore could be closer to probable, but he's not a fantasy option tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:47 am
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) questionable vs. LAC
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is questionable to play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was questionable for Tuesday and did not play. Martin has been out since Jan. 23 and he's also very likely to be traded. If he does play, Zach LaVine may play a little less. Martin is probably closer to doubtful for this one. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:34 am
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) out Wednesday vs. Utah
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: With Jameer on the sidelines Wednesday night, Emmanuel Mudiay figures to log minutes in the high-30s with Randy Foye having the opportunity for some extended run off the bench. Nelson belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:51 am
  • Devin Harris (toe) ruled out for Wednesday
    Devin Harris (toe) will not suit up for Wednesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle said that Harris will be doubtful for the next couple of games, so it doesn't sound like he'll be available for Friday's game vs. the Spurs or Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies. Raymond Felton and J.J. Barea will continue to earn some extended run in Harris' absence. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:38 am

  • Scott frustrated with Russell's attitude
    The Lakers coaching staff have been frustrated at times with D'Angelo Russell's sense of entitlement, according to beat reporter Mark Medina.

    Advice: More specifically, Byron Scott has been trying to "humble" the Lakers No. 2 overall pick this season, and it'll be interesting to see if Scott ever decides to fully unleash the rookie this year. If Byron would like to remain the Lakers head coach next season, it would be wise for him to return Russell to the starting lineup, but Scott has more often than not been more concerned with catering to Kobe Bryant's every whim on his retirement tour rather than actually developing the building blocks in Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:33 am
  • Kemba Walker (knee) out Wednesday vs. Cavs
    Kemba Walker (knee) will not play Wednesday vs. Cleveland.

    Advice: Wednesday will mark Kemba's first game on the sidelines this season, and it'll be Jeremy Lin, Brian Roberts and Troy Daniels picking up the slack in his absence. Lin figures to start at point guard for the Hornets tonight, so he's someone to consider in DFS as his minutes will likely be somewhere in the high-30s. Charlotte has a back-to-back set coming up Friday vs. Miami and Saturday vs. Washington, so there's a chance Kemba can get back on the court for one of those games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:15 am
  • Devin Harris (toe) questionable for Wednesday
    Devin Harris (sprained left big toe) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Heat.

    Advice: With both Harris and Deron Williams (hip) being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game, J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton could be in line for a healthy heaping of minutes tonight if both those guards can't give it a go. Barea will likely start if Williams is unavailable, and he'd be someone to consider in DFS. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:11 am

  • Jordan Clarkson scores 16 points in win
    Jordan Clarkson scored 16 points with three boards, two assists and two steals in 35 minutes vs. the Wolves on Tuesday.

    Advice: Coach Byron Scott has hinted several times that D'Angelo Russell will eventually move back into the starting lineup after the All-Star break, but that would likely push Lou Williams to the bench as opposed to Clarkson. Additionally, Williams is a trade candidate so that would take the pressure off both Russell and Clarkson if he was moved. Clarkson is a huge part of the Lakers' future and his role should be safe no matter what, so his owners don't have too much to be worried about. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:59 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell scores 18 points in win
    D'Angelo Russell scored 18 points with three boards, three assists and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: He looked really strong in the first half, but coach Byron Scott benched him down the stretch because Jordan Clarkson "is a little more experienced." Scott's treatment of the rookie has been puzzling this season and it's also gained a lot of attention from the media, so hopefully he starts feeling the pressure to increase the rookie's role. His outlook after the All-Star break is still promising. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:49 pm
  • Vintage Kobe: Bryant scores 38 w/ seven treys
    Kobe Bryant (shoulder) helped the Lakers snap a 10-game losing streak on Tuesday vs. the Wolves, scoring a season-high 38 points with seven 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was questionable to play with a shoulder injury, so this sounds about right for the Black Mamba. He was an impressive 10-of-21 from the field and 7-of-11 from 3-point range, adding five boards, five assists and two steals in 33 minutes. He's still battling several nagging injuries and should have plenty of maintenance days, so this is the perfect moment for his owners to sell high while they still can. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:35 pm
  • Ben McLemore (wrist) is questionable
    Ben McLemore (wrist) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: McLemore sat out of Tuesday's practice, but said back on Monday that he expects to play. Regardless, Marco Belinelli and Darren Collison will both benefit if McLemore decides to err on the side of caution. He's not a reliable fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:56 pm
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) out for Tuesday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers as expected.

    Advice: He was listed as questionable but coach Sam Mitchell never expected him to play. K-Mart is likely going to be traded, but he isn't worth stashing in almost any format at the moment. Zach LaVine will benefit on Tuesday and from here on out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:42 pm
  • Kevin Martin (wrist) questionable for Tuesday
    Kevin Martin (wrist) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers, although head coach Sam Mitchell said he didn't think he would play.

    Advice: Martin should be listed as doubtful here, and it would be very surprising to see him take the court tonight. We should have official confirmation soon enough, but Zach LaVine will be the primary beneficiary with Martin likely on the sidelines Tuesday night, and he's on the radar in DFS with a favorable matchup against the Lakers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:07 pm
  • Jameer Nelson listed as 'out' for Wednesday
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) is being listed as "out" for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: After returning from a six game absence, Nelson suffered a setback with his wrist, and it's looking like he's going to spend some extended time on the shelf. Emmanuel Mudiay will continue to get all the run he can handle with Nelson on the sidelines, with Randy Foye logging extended minutes off the bench. Nelson belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:24 am
  • Kemba Walker questionable for Weds vs Cavs
    Kemba Walker (sore left knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: The Hornets are dealing with a myriad of injuries, so we could be looking at an extremely short-handed roster for Wednesday against the Cavs if Kemba can't suit up. With updates to come on Wednesday, Jeremy Lin is in line for big minutes if Kemba sits, while Troy Daniels and Brian Roberts would see extra run as well. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:13 am
  • Kyrie Irving plays 41 minutes, scores 25
    Kyrie Irving scored 25 points with three rebounds, seven assists and one 3-pointer in 41 minutes against the Pacers on Monday.

    Advice: His usage rate is climbing and his 41 minutes are a season high. Irving isn't taking 3-pointers as much these days, which was a big reason why he broke out last year from an efficiency standpoint. That should come soon while the assists are starting to come around, too. Regardless, Kyrie looks great and is poised to pay dividends for his patient owners. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 7:10 pm
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) out Monday
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play on Monday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: He experienced a setback, so he's likely going to spend some time on the shelf. Emmanuel Mudiay is going to be looking at significant minutes, while Randy Foye and Sean Kilpatrick could play more as well. Leave Nelson on the wire. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 4:26 pm
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) experiences setback
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) experienced a setback, and he's now doubtful to play on Monday vs. Toronto.

    Advice: For now, he's considered just day-to-day, but the team is deciding whether an "extended absence" is necessary. Nelson had played in each of the last two games, but he's taken a major backseat to Emmanuel Mudiay as the rookie point guard has played better and Denver emphasizes a youth movement. Now dealing with a recurring wrist injury and staring a potential shutdown in the face, Nelson's proper home in your fantasy league is on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 9:32 am
  • D'Angelo Russell struggling to improve game
    D'Angelo Russell admitted that he doesn't feel like he's currently improving his NBA game.

    Advice: Russell complained about the Lakers work in practice not translating to games, but the more troubling aspect of his quote has to be the following: "I feel like I was improving. Now I feel like it's ... not really as much." Russell is expected to rejoin the starting lineup after the All-Star break, but as he said, "something different" has to happen for D'Angelo to restart his previous progress. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 9:11 am
  • Lue staying on top of Irving about improving
    Tyronn Lue is committed to staying on top of Kyrie Irving about becoming a "better point guard."

    Advice: "He told me that he was going to stay on me about pace and about being a better point guard," Irving said. "Just facilitating, knowing our plays, knowing when people need to be at the right spot offensively and defensively. He's been on me." Irving has still struggled with consistency, but he's played well over his last two games, averaging 24.5 points, 4.0 assists and 1.5 steals on 55.6 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 8:39 am
  • Devin Harris (toe) not with team on Monday
    Devin Harris (sprained left big toe) will not play on Monday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: He's not even with the team, a possible indication that he might be getting a deeper look at the injury. This is concerning because it's the same foot (not the same toe) that Harris had surgery on back in 2013, and there is currently no timetable for Harris' return. While he's out, J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton should each see an increased role. Rotoworld.com Feb 1, 7:31 am

  • Allen Crabbe helps Blazers beat Minnesota
    Allen Crabbe came off the bench for eight points on 4-of-7 in 23 minutes vs. the Wolves on Sunday, adding three rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: Crabbe is having a career year and he's quietly emerged with top-75 value in January (9-cat), posting 11.8 points, 1.6 triples, 3.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.3 assists, while making 47.3 percent FGs without a single miss at the FT line. He's not flashy, but is worth a pickup as a cheap, well-rounded roto option. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 9:21 pm
  • Kyle Korver shoots 0-of-6 in lopsided defeat
    Kyle Korver missed all six of his shots on Sunday, finishing an 87-105 road loss with zero points, three rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes.

    Advice: The Hawks' offense has been awful lately and Korver is ice cold over his past two games, going a combined 2-of-15 from the field. It's been a bumpy ride for Korver this season but he continues to eke out late-round value in 9-cat leagues, thanks to his 3-point shooting (1.9 per game), FT percentage (85.0) and low turnovers (1.4). Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 6:17 pm
  • Wes Johnson hits three 3-pointers Sunday
    Wes Johnson scored 11 points off the bench on Sunday to go with three 3-pointers, two boards, one assist and no other statistics in 20 minutes.

    Advice: Johnson doesn’t really stuff the stat sheet, but he’s been a mid-round guy over the past month largely due to his 3-point shooting (1.9) and steals (1.9). He’s on the radar as a 3-point and steals specialist in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 3:44 pm
  • E'Twaun Moore scores 10 points w/ five dimes
    E'Twaun Moore scored 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting in his second consecutive start at shooting guard on Sunday, to go with five assists, one 3-pointer, one rebound and one block in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Moore has been getting a ton of run over the past two games as Chicago’s starting two-guard, but that really hasn’t shown up on the stat sheet. In those two starts, he’s posted meager averages of 9.0 points, 3.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block per game on 43.8 percent shooting. He'll likely find himself back on the bench once Mike Dunleavy (back) get back on the court, so he's not really worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 3:19 pm
  • Devin Harris (toe) out Sunday vs. Phoenix
    Devin Harris (toe) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Suns, and he is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game in Atlanta.

    Advice: J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will continue to split Harris' minutes, and they could see some increased opportunity tonight with Dirk Nowitzki (rest) on the sidelines. Harris belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 2:35 pm
    Injured
     
  • Wes Johnson will come off the bench Sunday
    Wes Johnson will return to the bench for Sunday's game vs. the Bulls with Paul Pierce (rest) back in the starting lineup.

    Advice: Johnson minutes don't fluctuate much as a reserve or a starter, so how he enters the game doesn't mean all that much. He's actually been a sneaky mid-round guy over the past month with averages of 8.5 points, 1.9 three-pointers, 1.9 steals and 0.8 blocks per game, so he's worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 12:32 pm
  • Devin Harris (toe) questionable for Sunday
    Devin Harris (toe) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Suns.

    Advice: If he can't play Sunday, J.J. Barea and Raymond Felton will continue to pick up some extra minutes off the bench, with Barea offering the most upside. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 12:17 pm
    Injured
     
  • Russell says his defense must improve
    D'Angelo Russell admitted that he needs to stop being "nonchalant" on the court.

    Advice: "Don't take plays off on the defensive end, and on the offensive end don't be nonchalant. No player in this league -- they might be really, really good and they look like they're playing nonchalant, but they're not," said Russell. "Me, at this point, I tend to be nonchalant at times -- just getting it out of my system." As disappointing as the rookie has been, he still has all the tools to become a stud in this league and he should be much better after the All-Star break. His owners would likely regret letting him go right now. Rotoworld.com Jan 31, 6:31 am
  • Kyrie irving puts up another nice line
    Kyrie Irving scored 21 points with one rebound, six assists, two steals and one turnover in 36 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: He had himself a very nice weekend with a 28-pointer on Friday. Before yesterday, coach Ty Lue said he wanted Kyrie to be aggressive. In those two games, he's made 12 shots in the paint, making a pristine 77.8 percent at the rim. Irving is definitely on the upswing. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 8:34 pm
  • Emmanuel Mudiay scores 11 points
    Emmanuel Mudiay scored 11 points with five rebounds, eight assists and four turnovers against the Pacers on Saturday.

    Advice: He's playing much better and he's not making the big mistakes late in games. While there is a little more to like about him in reality, he still hasn't put it together in fantasy. Chances are his owners think he has more value than he actually does. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 7:20 pm
  • Ish Smith scores 16 points with nine dimes
    Ish Smith made 7-of-19 from the field for 16 points during a thrilling 108-105 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding five rebounds, nine assists, four steals and one turnover.

    Advice: The 76ers used multiple lineup combos of Smith, T.J. McConnell and Isaiah Canaan tonight, which had not been used before this game. Smith was 2-of-10 from the field to start the game, so he kind of salvaged a decent game. He's still worth owning in standard leagues despite hurting FG%. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 5:04 pm
  • Nik Stauskas scores 10 points
    Nik Stauskas scored 10 points in the starting lineup on Saturday against the Warriors with one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was absolutely torched on defense by Klay Thompson. Coach Brett Brown likes Sauce Castillo, but the consistency is not there at all. Leave him on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 4:46 pm
  • E'Twaun Moore will start again on Sunday
    E'Twaun Moore will start again on Sunday against the Clippers with Tony Snell coming off the bench.

    Advice: The players wanted to get Moore in there to help the offense and they'll get their wish. Moore played 36 minutes on Thursday with eight points and could get significant run again. If you want to use him in DFS, it's kind of playing with fire. He's not a great add in season-long leagues because of Mike Dunleavy (back) coming back soon. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 11:54 am
  • Lue wants Kyrie Irving to be aggressive
    Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue wants Kyrie Irving to constantly attack.

    Advice: "I just want him to attack," Lue said. "Attack first and if it opens up to an assist, then we'll make the play. But I just don't think nobody can stop him one-on-one, so I just want him to get back to being confident and playing the way he's capable of playing." Irving took his coach's advice on Friday and played really well, scoring 28 points with four boards, two steals and one turnover. Buy low while there is still time. Rotoworld.com Jan 30, 6:44 am
  • Allen Crabbe scores 20 vs. Hornets
    Allen Crabbe scored 20 points against the Hornets on Friday with three rebounds, one assist, one steal, two turnovers and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Crabbe isn't playing small forward as much as he was earlier in the season, but his minutes are up in his last six. Still, he only put up 12th-round value in that span, so there's little incentive to adding him. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 11:09 pm
  • Wes Johnson scores nine points in start at PF
    Wes Johnson started at small forward for the Clippers on Friday, but only managed to produce nine points, two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block through 26 minutes of action.

    Advice: Johnson also shot just 4-of-10 from the field, so this wasn't a very inspiring performance given the increased opportunity as a starter and an easy matchup with the Lakers. Johnson will likely be seeing some increased opportunity with Blake Griffin (hand) out until late-March, but he's nothing more than a late-round asset in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 10:51 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell scores 8 points w/ 5 dimes
    D'Angelo Russell shot just 3-of-10 from the field during Friday's loss to the Lakers, on his way to eight points, five assists, two 3-pointers, two rebounds, one steal and two turnovers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Despite being this year’s No. 2 overall selection and playing for the worst team in the Western Conference (9-39), Russell is averaging a mere 26.9 minutes per game and is stuck behind Lou Williams, Kobe Bryant and Anthony Brown in the rotation. Byron Scott won’t hesitate to bench Russell, and it’s troubling to see Anthony Brown start over him when Kobe goes to the sidelines. The upside is there for Russell, but playing for Scott is a major hindrance to his value. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 10:31 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 17 points w/ 8 boards
    Jordan Clarkson scored 17 points on 7-of-16 shooting during Friday's loss to the Clippers, adding eight rebounds, two assists and three turnovers through 36 minutes of action.

    Advice: Clarkson has been a solid late-round guy on the season, but that’s basically where his value maxes out due to a low shooting percentage (43.7 percent from the field) and limited 3-point shooting (1.0 three-pointer per contest). His game translates better to points leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 9:59 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 28 points in win
    Kyrie Irving made 11-of-19 from the field for 28 points against the Pistons on Friday, adding four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnovers 32 minutes.

    Advice: He's having a down year and it's pretty easy to pinpoint why. Before tonight, Kyrie only had a 39.1 effective field goal percentage on his catch-and-shoot shots. Last year? Irving put up a Steph Curry-like 65.4 eFG% on those shots. Expect him to get hot very soon, especially with the minutes on the rise. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 8:42 pm
  • Wes Johnson will start at PF vs. the Lakers
    Wes Johnson will start at power forward for the Clippers on Friday with Paul Pierce (rest) out.

    Advice: Johnson has been trending up over the past month, so this lineup switch could stick long-term. Johnson will draw a favorable matchup against the Lakers, so he's someone to consider as a punt play in DFS. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 7:29 pm
  • Lance Thomas will move back to bench
    Lance Thomas will move back to the bench on Friday against the Suns.

    Advice: He is still not 100 percent from his knee injury last week. The Knicks brought Thanasis Antetokounmpo to the big club to help out, so maybe he gets some minutes. Thomas can be dropped in most leagues now that Carmelo Anthony (knee) is back. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 3:09 pm
  • Devin Harris (toe) will not play Friday
    Devin Harris (toe) will not play on Friday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: His toe has been a lingering issue, so the Mavs would be wise to hold hm out for a while. With Harris on the shelf, J.J. Barea has been the primary beneficiary and is worth owning in deeper leagues. Raymond Felton should play more as well. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 9:08 am
    Injured
     
  • Rose and Butler endorse E'Twaun Moore
    Both Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler endorsed E'Twaun Moore as a good fit in the starting lineup.

    Advice: Moore started over Tony Snell on Thursday vs. the Lakers and played a whopping 36 minutes, scoring eight points with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block. Rose and Butler both like playing with him because he spaces the floor well, but he's not a great add in standard leagues just yet because he is basically the fourth or fifth option on offense. He will lose most of his minutes when Mike Dunleavy (back) returns as well. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 7:55 am
  • E'Twaun Moore returned to action on Thursday January 28. Rotoworld.com Jan 29, 12:15 am
  • E'Twaun Moore scores eight points
    E'Twaun Moore scored eight points in the starting lineup against the Lakers on Thursday with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in 36 minutes.

    Advice: That's a huge chunk of playing time as coach Fred Hoiberg really shook up his wing minutes tonight. His best case scenario is just keeping the seat warm for Mike Dunleavy (back) next month, so he's not a very appealing add in almost any league. Interestingly, Derrick Rose was vocal about playing Moore tonight. Rotoworld.com Jan 28, 10:27 pm
