  • Jordan Hill scores six points with 10 boards
    Jordan Hill (back) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday vs. the Lakers and scored six points with 10 boards (three offensive) and one assist in 20 minutes.

    Advice: It had to feel good for him to get the win over his old squad, and he did mention before the game that his back is doing a lot better. Hill's hustle and offensive rebounding has earned him a consistent role off the Pacers' bench, but he isn't going to be a reliable fantasy asset while he is only seeing minutes in the low 20s. Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Nick Young scores 22 points in 2nd half
    After going scoreless in the first half, Nick Young erupted after the break and finished with 22 points, two boards, one assist and six 3-pointers in 27 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: The Lakers couldn't generate any offense in the first half, but Young stepped up down the stretch and certainly wasn't shy on offense with 14 shot attempts on the night. Swaggy P was held to single-digit scoring in his previous four games, so we would need to see him do this again before we can recommend an add in most leagues. He's a low-end 3-point specialist until further notice, but he could benefit if Kobe Bryant goes down at some point this season. Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Marcus Thornton gets hot late in OT road win
    Marcus Thornton recovered from a pair of quiet games to score 18 points vs. the Knicks on Sunday, hitting 6-of-11 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs with two 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Thornton hit a clutch 3-pointer that forced overtime, then proceeded to score seven points during the extra period. His line would have been unremarkable had this game ended in regulation, and he should remain on the waiver wire. Yesterday, 8:19 pm
  • Lance Thomas scores 15 points w/ Carmelo out
    Lance Thomas was a surprise starter for the Knicks on Sunday, posting 15 points, one 3-pointer and three rebounds in the absence of Carmelo Anthony (illness).

    Advice: Thomas made 6-of-10 shots in 36 minutes of action, but he missed a potentially game-winning 3-pointer late in regulation and his defense was suspect all night. Carmelo will likely be fine for Wednesday's game vs. the 76ers, so Thomas shouldn't budge from your waiver wire. Yesterday, 8:12 pm
  • Jon Leuer scores 16 points off Suns' bench
    Jon Leuer came off the bench on Sunday to score 16 points with two 3-pointers, four rebounds, two assists and one block in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Markieff Morris wasn't playing well and Tyson Chandler (hamstring) was out, so Leuer took full advantage of some extra opportunities. He's alternated big games with a series of duds all season, and belongs on the waiver wire in the preponderance of leagues. Yesterday, 6:30 pm
  • Andrew Nicholson posts 14 & 8 w/ two triples
    Andrew Nicholson scored 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting vs. Boston, hitting two 3-pointers with eight rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes.

    Advice: In the four games since claiming a larger role in Scott Skiles' rotation, Nicholson has averaged 10.5 points, 1.7 triples, 6.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 24.0 minutes. Orlando has won three straight, so Nicholson isn't in imminent danger of losing his current role, and he's producing enough to be owned in leagues with 16 or more teams. Yesterday, 6:18 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) plays well in return
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) had 10 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one assist in Sunday's loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: He made all four of his shot attempts in 22 minutes of action, and looked good considering he'd missed the past four games. Sam Mitchell has been tinkering with his rotation lately and there are no guarantees that Bjelica will average a solid 26-28 minutes per game, but he's worth holding onto while we find out. Yesterday, 4:36 pm
  • Luc Mbah a Moute starts, plays 23 mins Sunday
    Luc Mbah a Moute started at SF vs. the Wolves and posted seven points, two 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Mbah a Moute hasn't cracked top-200 fantasy value since the 2010-11 season and he offers no upside as part of a timeshare with Paul Pierce, Lance Stephenson and Wes Johnson. Deep league owners should give him a look while he's starting, but the vast majority should ignore him. Yesterday, 4:24 pm
  • Lance Thomas starts w/ Carmelo (illness) out
    Lance Thomas will start Sunday's game vs. the Rockets in place of Carmelo Anthony (illness).

    Advice: This is Thomas' first start of the season and he's worth a look as a last-second DFS punt play, but owners in typical leagues can ignore him with Melo day-to-day. Yesterday, 4:08 pm
  • Kevin Martin shoots 1-of-5 from the field
    Kevin Martin's cold streak continued on Sunday, as he went just 1-of-5 from the field, finishing the game with just two points, three boards and one steal to his credit through 23 minutes.

    Advice: Martin is currently going through one of the worst shooting slumps of his career, and over the past nine games he's averaging just 7.2 points, 3.0 boards and 0.4 three-pointers per game on a horrific 25.7 percent shooting clip. He’s not going to be this horrendous for the entire season, but given that he basically only offers fantasy teams with some scoring and 3-point shooting when he's playing well, he's not a must-own guy in standard formats. Yesterday, 4:08 pm
  • Bargnani (hamstring) will not return Sunday
    Andrea Bargnani (hamstring) will not return to Sunday's game vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: It's his left hamstring, so it's the same issue that robbed him of most of the preseason. Bargnani doesn't tend to get over injuries quickly, so he could be looking at a lengthy absence. With Bargnani sidelined, Thomas Robinson might be able to see a few extra minutes in the rotation. Yesterday, 3:42 pm
  • Jeremy Lamb drains three 3-pointers in win
    Jeremy Lamb knocked down three more 3-pointers during Sunday's win over the Bucks, adding 14 points, nine rebounds and two assists over 27 minutes.

    Advice: Lamb has really turned his career around in Charlotte, and is currently putting up mid-round value on the season behind averages of 12.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.3 three-pointers and just 0.9 turnovers per game on 52.3 percent shooting from the field (all career-highs). Lamb is not owned in nearly enough Yahoo! Leagues (35 percent ownership) so make sure the 3-point sniper isn't sitting on your waiver wire. Yesterday, 3:42 pm
  • Jordan Hill (back) a game-time decision Sun
    Jordan Hill (back) went through shootaround, but he remains a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

    Advice: Hill did say his back was feeling better after going through shootaround, but we're not likely going to have another update until after he goes through pregame warmups. If he's not able to play, more minutes will fall to Lavoy Allen with Paul George likely spending some additional time at the four-spot. Stay tuned. Yesterday, 12:05 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will play on Sunday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will be available to play Sunday against the Clippers.

    Advice: Bjelica will return from a four-game absence on Sunday, although he's likely going to be eased back into the rotation. Owners in most leagues can use a wait-and-see approach with Bjelica as he was in a pretty bad slump before going down with the injury. Adreian Payne and Shabazz Muhammad's fantasy values will take a hit with the return of Bjelica, and Gorgui Dieng could also lose some minutes. Yesterday, 11:34 am
  • Luc Mbah a Moute will start on Sunday for LAC
    Luc Mbah a Moute will start in place of Wes Johnson for Sunday's game vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: The Clippers can't seem to get consistent production out of guys like Johnson, Paul Pierce and Lance Stephenson, so now it's Mbah a Moute's turn. The veteran is averaging less than five minutes per game this season and is more of a defensive specialist, so there's no need to add him in any format. Yesterday, 11:00 am
  • Motiejunas (back) hopes to practice next week
    Donatas Motiejunas (back) is hoping to be cleared to return to practice next week.

    Advice: He will be evaluated on Tuesday, so that is the earliest that we will be able to provide another update. The big man has been sidelined since April and will be behind Clint Capela and Terrence Jones in the rotation, so there's no reason to take a flier on him outside of the deepest leagues. Yesterday, 9:39 am
  • Bjelica (knee) expected to play Sunday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Bjelica has missed the last four games due to a knee contusion, but he appears to be all set to return to the court on Sunday. He was in a slump prior to going to down with the injury, so it makes some sense to see if he turn things around before adding him in standard leagues. With Bjelica expected to be available, Adreian Payne could fall out of the rotation. Yesterday, 9:01 am
  • Thabo Sefolosha returned to action on Saturday November 28. Yesterday, 12:10 am
  • Omri Casspi scores 11 in start on Saturday
    Omri Casspi scored 11 points on 3-of-10 shooting with seven boards, one assist and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes in a start at small forward on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: DeMarcus Cousins (back) was sidelined again, but George Karl went with Casspi instead of Willie Cauley-Stein because of the Warriors' tendency to play small. Casspi should flirt with 30 minutes per game until Cousins is able to return (he is day-to-day), so feel free to give him a look if he's available in your league. The Kings will take on the Mavericks on Monday. Saturday, 10:52 pm
  • Trevor Booker puts up big double-double
    Trevor Booker was terrific in a start on Saturday against the Pelicans with 13 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, two steals and three blocks in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Derrick Favors (personal) didn't play, so Cook Book got all he could eat. Favors isn't expected to be out long, so Booker's value figures to be low on Monday against the Warriors. Saturday, 9:44 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha scores eight points in start
    Thabo Sefolosha scored eight points against the Spurs during a start on Saturday with four rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Presumably, the Hawks put Thabo in the first unit to defend an offensive superstar at small forward. Sefolosha's value won't be too high considering he's not going to get many points, but he could have some sneaky late-round value. Most owners should shoot for a higher upside. Saturday, 7:53 pm
  • Omri Casspi will start, Cauley-Stein to bench
    Omri Casspi will start on Saturday vs. the Warriors with Willie Cauley-Stein moving to the bench.

    Advice: DeMarcus Cousins (back) is out and head coach George Karl usually bases his lineups on the matchup, so it makes sense to go small against the Warriors. Casspi should see around 30 minutes tonight and is worth plugging into most lineups. Saturday, 6:28 pm
  • Trevor Booker will start on Saturday vs. NOP
    Trevor Booker will start on Saturday vs. the Pelicans in place of Derrick Favors (personal).

    Advice: Booker is averaging just 3.3 points and 5.2 boards in 19.6 minutes per game this season, so he obviously doesn't have much upside. Considering he will be going up against Anthony Davis, it will be tough to rely on Booker outside of the deepest of leagues. Saturday, 5:11 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha will start on Saturday
    Thabo Sefolosha will start on Saturday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Sefolosha was rested on Friday vs. the Grizzlies, but he should see minutes in the 20s tonight and will probably be tasked with guarding Kawhi Leonard. Kent Bazemore will shift to the bench against the Spurs after he returned from his ankle injury on Friday, but it's possible that the Hawks are just being cautious with him since it's the second night of a back-to-back set. Sefolosha is more of a defensive specialist, so he is better suited for deeper leagues. Saturday, 4:10 pm
  • Jordan Hill (back) questionable for Sunday
    Jordan Hill (back) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Revenge game? The Lakers benched Hill down the stretch last season to get more ping pong balls for the draft lottery, so Hill will definitely want to make some noise on Sunday. He wasn't able to practice on Saturday, so we likely won't know his status until after the team's shootaround. Lavoy Allen should see solid minutes if Hill can't play while Paul George will see more time at the four. Saturday, 11:09 am
  • Kevin Martin has another awful game
    Kevin Martin made 1-of-6 from the field for three points with two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes on Friday.

    Advice: He hasn't really played well based on the stat sheet, but the Wolves starting unit has been solid. In his last five, Martin averaged just 9.0 points, 3.4 boards, 0.4 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.8 treys in just 25.4 minutes. He's only made just 30.2 percent from the field and just 34 percent on the year, so he's not a must-own player. Saturday, 12:37 am
  • Omri Casspi puts up nice effort in loss
    Omri Casspi scored 15 points against the Wolves on Friday with six rebounds and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: He continues to log major minutes at power forward, which should continue until DeMarcus Cousins (back) is back. Casspi has 10th-round value on the season, but that value is somewhat inflated due to Boogie and Rudy Gay missing time this season. Saturday, 12:06 am
  • Andrew Nicholson scores just three points
    Andrew Nicholson played 25 minutes against the Bucks on Friday with three points, seven rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer on 1-of-7 from the field.

    Advice: He played more minutes tonight than any other Magic big man. Nicholson was the first big off the bench and played minutes at both power forward and center tonight. He's still more of a 16-team guy, but coach Scott Skiles apparently likes him more than anyone in the NBA. Most owners should just keep an eye on him, especially since he didn't play well tonight. Friday, 6:59 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) out Friday vs. SAC
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: It'll be Bjelica's fourth straight game on the sidelines, and he remains without a clear timetable to return. Gorgui Dieng has seen his minutes go up recently, and it'll be interesting to see if that trend continues once Bjelica is healthy. Adreian Payne will also pick up some extra minutes sans Bjelica, but he won't see enough floor time to make an impact in most leagues. Friday, 6:06 pm
  • Jordan Hill (back) out for Friday night
    Jordan Hill (back) will not play against the Bulls on Friday night.

    Advice: He's dealt with back injuries in his career before and must have aggravated it on Wednesday. With Hill out, we should see a lot of Paul George at the four. Lavoy Allen could also be looking at minutes in the mid 20s tonight. Friday, 4:26 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha out for Friday night
    Thabo Sefolosha (rest) will not play against the Grizzlies on Friday.

    Advice: It's just rest on the front end of a back-to-back set. Sefolosha did have some tightness in his ankle following a back-to-back set last week, so the Hawks will play it safe. Kent Bazemore (ankle) is back and starting while Lamar Patterson should get some run, too. Friday, 3:38 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica likely out on Friday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is not likely to play on Friday against the Kings.

    Advice: He will be a game-time call, but fantasy owners should plan on him sitting. Bjelica was really struggling before his injury, so he's justifiably been cut in several leagues. Expect to see a lot of small-ball tonight with Adreian Payne getting most of the PF minutes. Payne isn't a great play. Friday, 3:12 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica is a game-time call
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is a game-time decision to play against the Kings on Friday.

    Advice: He was able to go through at least some of practice today. The Wolves haven't been able to get much out of the power forward spot in the past two weeks with Bjelica struggling before his injury and Adreian Payne in a slump, too. Tayshaun Prince has played a lot of stretch four and Shabazz Muhammad has stepped up a tad. Fantasy owners should probably steer clear of this situation. Friday, 12:05 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) hopeful to play Friday
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) is feeling better and is hopeful to play on Friday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: He's missed the past three games due to a knee contusion, and it should be noted that he was in a major slump prior to going down. Bjelica does have talent and upside, but feel free to monitor him from the waiver wire until he turns things around. Friday, 9:09 am
  • Omri Casspi headed for more minutes?
    Following the Kings 129-118 win over the Bucks on Wednesday, George Karl hinted that Omri Casspi could be getting more consistent minutes in the Kings rotation.

    Advice: "I think I need to keep Omri in with Rudy [Gay] as much as possible," said Karl. "It seems that combination really complements with size there and also the ability to find a mismatch situation that is beneficial to us." Casspi's minutes tend to trend up when DeMarcus Cousins (back) is sidelined, but if Karl wants to continue giving Casspi and Gay minutes together, Willie Cauley-Stein's playing time could suffer. It'll be interesting to see how Karl's rotations shake out once DMC is back on the court, but Omri is worth a speculative add in deep leagues after scoring 19 points during Wednesday's win. Thursday, 2:19 pm
  • Jon Leuer shines as primary center
    Jon Leuer was outstanding against the Pelicans on Wednesday with 20 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: He certainly didn't handle the defensive side of things with Anthony Davis going off, but Leuer is in a nice groove on offense. He's basically splitting the backup center job with Alex Len depending on the matchup. With Tyson Chandler (illness) likely back for the Warriors on Friday, Leuer is more of an 18-team stash. Wednesday, 10:48 pm
  • Marcus Thornton scores two points
    Marcus Thornton scored two points in 15 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: More importantly, he attempted his first free throws of the season after failing to do so in his first 316 minutes of the year. Your move, T.J. McConnell. Wednesday, 9:46 pm
  • Omri Casspi has a terrific game
    Omri Casspi scored 19 points with seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He gets a ton of run at both forward spots and he benefited from DeMarcus Cousins (back) not playing tonight. Casspi put up mid-round value the last time Boogie had to miss games, so he's worth a look at any depth for owners seeking short-term value. Cousins won't be out long, though. Wednesday, 8:49 pm
  • Kevin Martin still slumping, shoots 3-of-12
    Kevin Martin made another start at SG on Wednesday, scoring 11 points on 3-of-12 shooting with one 3-pointer, three rebounds and zero assists, steals or blocks in 23 minutes.

    Advice: The veteran scorer is shooting 29.2 percent in his past five games, including a combined 3-of-11 mark from downtown. Sam Mitchell moved him into the starting unit to generate more scoring, so he'll need make shots soon or risk a demotion. If you own KevMart, at least bench him until he's not awful. Wednesday, 8:48 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha locks down Wiggins in 32 mins
    Making another start at SF on Wednesday, Thabo Sefolosha contributed 10 points, two 3-pointers, six rebounds and one block in 32 minutes vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: His defense kept Andrew Wiggins in check, as he scored only 15 points on 5-of-17 shooting, and it will be interesting to see how Mike Budenholzer uses Thabo once Kent Bazemore (ankle) returns to action. Tonight's solid game comes on the heels of a terrific game vs. the Celtics, and Sefolosha is worth deploying while logging 30+ minutes as a starter. Wednesday, 8:41 pm
  • Jeremy Lamb roasts Wizards, scores 18 points
    Jeremy Lamb pitched in 18 points (6-of-12 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes to help Charlotte win at home on Wednesday.

    Advice: Lamb is averaging career-highs in most categories this season and his effective FG percentage (60.4) has improved more than any qualifying player from last season. He's richly rewarding the Hornets' decision to extend his contract, and has earned a spot on all fantasy rosters. Wednesday, 6:40 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will not play
    Nemanja Bjelica (knee) will not play against the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Advice: It'll be his third game out due to knee soreness from his contusion. After the former EuroLeague MVP was playing well earlier this month, his injury has justifiably sent him to the waiver wire. Adreian Payne and Shabazz Muhammad gain some value here. Wednesday, 4:05 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Nemanja Bjelica (left knee contusion) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Advice: Bjelica was limited during Tuesday's practice, so it wouldn't be shocking to see him spend another game on the sidelines. If he's out, Adreian Payne and Shabazz Muhammad will split his minutes, but neither guy makes for a great play in most leagues. Wednesday, 7:37 am
  • Thabo Sefolosha scores 15, hits 7-of-8
    Thabo Sefolosha drew another start in the absence of Kent Bazemore (ankle) on Tuesday, hitting 7-of-8 shots for a season-high 15 points, seven rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks in an easy win over the Celtics.

    Advice: He's not really an offensive threat on most nights, but has played well on that end of the court in two straight. He'll continue to start and guard the opposition's best player for as long as Bazemore is out, but is only a real option in fantasy on nights when Baze isn't playing. Bazemore has missed four straight games, but should be back by the end of the week. Tuesday, 8:19 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica (knee) limited at practice
    Namenja Bjelica (knee) was able to do some "light stuff" during Tuesday's practice, according to head coach Sam Mitchell.

    Advice: Bjelica has spent the past two games on the sidelines with a left knee contusion, but this is the first time he's been able to get through any portions of the Wolves practice. We'll be considering him questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Hawks, and if he can't give it a go, it'll be Adreian Payne and Shabazz Muhammad picking up some extra minutes. Check back for another update on Bjelica following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Tuesday, 11:44 am
  • Omri Casspi gets 27 minutes off bench
    Omri Casspi played 27 minutes off the bench on Monday with six points, five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He played a ton of stretch four tonight, which could continue if DeMarcus Cousins (back, thigh) needs to miss time, Casspi had his best run of the season while Boogie was out, so he's worth a speculative add in 14-team leagues. Boogie shouldn't be out for long, though. Monday, 8:30 pm
  • Kevin Martin struggles in start on Monday
    Kevin Martin moved into the starting lineup in place of Tayshaun Prince on Monday vs. the 76ers, but he scored just six points on 3-of-10 shooting.

    Advice: He added one board, one steal and one 3-pointer, but he's been in a serious slump lately and has been shooting just 29.8 percent from the field over his last five games. The Wolves need a consistent 3-point shooter, but Martin hasn't been reliable and could continue to lose minutes to Zach LaVine. Feel free to move on until he heats up. Monday, 7:59 pm
  • Andrew Nicholson has another nice game
    Andrew Nicholson scored a team-high 18 points against the Cavs on Monday with eight rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: He played 24 minutes tonight after logging just seven minutes on Saturday. Nicholson did play 22 minutes two games ago and coach Scott Skiles is just crazy enough to start Nicholson. Still, he's only worth a speculative add in 16-team leagues and is kind of an underdog to start. Monday, 7:31 pm
  • Casspi starts 2nd half, Cauley-Stein to bench
    Omri Casspi started the second half in place of Willie Cauley-Stein on Monday against the Hornets.

    Advice: Kings head coach George Karl keeps rookie WCS on a very short leash, so don't read too much into this. Casspi is a favorite of Karl's, but his value is held in check when Rudy Gay is active. Monday, 5:31 pm
  • Andrea Bargnani scores 12 points vs. Nets
    Andrea Bargnani came off the bench to score 12 points in 21 minutes vs. the Celtics on Sunday, hitting 6-of-9 shots with three rebounds and one block.

    Advice: It was Bargnani's first double-digit performance since opening night -- in between he averaged 4.4 points per game. We might not see him score 12+ points again until 2016. Nov 22, 5:40 pm
  • Kevin Martin will start Monday vs. the 76ers
    Kevin Martin will replace Tayshaun Prince in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the 76ers.

    Advice: The Wolves are currently on a two-game losing streak, and head coach Sam Mitchell said the move was to infuse some more scoring into the first-unit. Martin has been ice cold over the past five games with averages of just 7.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 0.2 three-pointers per game on 25.0 percent shooting, so perhaps the promotion to the starting five will help him get things back on track. Andrew Wiggins will move to small forward with Martin at the two. Nov 22, 11:24 am
  • K-Mart losing minutes due to shooting slump
    Wolves coach Sam Mitchell said that Kevin Martin has been losing minutes to Zach LaVine because he is in a shooting slump.

    Advice: Martin is shooting just 25.0 percent from the field over his last five games and has hit just one 3-pointer in that span, while Zach LaVine has been playing really well. It doesn't help that the Wolves are eager to develop their young studs, so Martin's outlook for the rest of the season isn't looking too good. He is not a must-own player. Nov 22, 8:30 am
  • Thabo Sefolosha scores 13 points in start
    Thabo Sefolosha scored 13 points in a start against the Cavs on Saturday with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

    Advice: The Hawks put him out there on LeBron James and he did a fine job. Sefolosha's added playing time probably won't last for long with Kent Bazemore (ankle) likely back in the next couple games. If he's out there on the wire, he should probably stay there. Nov 21, 7:07 pm
  • Jordan Hill crushes Bucks
    Jordan Hill scored a season-high 20 points against the Bucks on Saturday with 11 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block

    Advice: He was 9-of-10 from the field and killed the Bucks in the low-post. Hill had 10 of his points come in the final 13 minutes with the Pacers up at least 20, so this is a garbage time special. He's not a great add after this one. Nov 21, 6:33 pm
  • Omri Casspi gets 32 minutes off bench
    Omri Casspi scored 11 points off the bench on Saturday against the Magic, adding 11 rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He played a lot of power forward tonight in what turned out to be a lot of small ball in this game. Casspi will be getting plenty of minutes regardless of role for as long as Rudy Gay (shoulder) is out. Gay is only day-to-day, so give Casspi a look if you're looking for some short-term value in the 60-90 range. Nov 21, 5:04 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha to start vs. LeBron
    Thabo Sefolosha will start against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Advice: This one has to be due to LeBron James, so the Hawks will get Sefolosha on him as much as they can. He's still not too involved in the offense, but should get enough minutes to be a viable fantasy option. Nov 21, 3:09 pm
  • Omri Casspi isn't starting for Kings vs. ORL
    Coach George Karl said the Kings will start three guards next to Willie Cauley-Stein and DeMarcus Cousins.

    Advice: Interesting. This could be the coach playing mind games, but if he's telling the truth that would mean Omri Casspi is coming off the bench. Ben McLemore and Rajon Rondo will almost certainly be two of the three guards while Marco Belinelli or Darren Collison will be the third guard -- probably Collison. Still, Casspi has some good value along with a hot B-Mac. Nov 21, 12:51 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha is good to go for Saturday
    Thabo Sefolosha will play against the Cavaliers on Saturday.

    Advice: He had some tightness in his ankle on Wednesday following the back-to-back set, but he'll be out there. Sefolosha and the Hawks don't have another back-to-back until Tuesday and Wednesday. He should get close to 28-30 minutes on Saturday. Nov 20, 12:27 pm
  • Motiejunas (back) will be evaluated on Dec. 1
    Donatas Motiejunas (back) will be re-evaluated on Dec. 1 in the hopes that he will finally be cleared to work out with the team.

    Advice: The big man has been sidelined since April, but his original 2-3 month timetable was way off and it's not a guarantee that he will be cleared to practice in December. Feel free to stash him if you are in a really deep league, but your expectations should be pretty low with Terrence Jones playing well in the starting lineup. Keep in mind that Motiejunas will be eased back into the rotation as well once he is cleared. Nov 20, 6:10 am
  • Omri Casspi scores 16 points
    Omri Casspi scored 16 points in the starting lineup on Thursday with six rebounds, one block and three 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: He was 7-of-11 from the field and missed all four shots from the line. Casspi started at the three because DeMarcus Cousins was suspended, but he would likely stick in the starting lineup if Rudy Gay (shoulder) needs to miss time. He's a very solid speculative add in standard leagues while we await the word of Gay's prognosis. Nov 19, 7:17 pm
