  • Greivis Vasquez (ankle) is targeting March
    Greivis Vasquez (ankle surgery) said that is targeting a return to the court in 3-4 weeks.

    Advice: He had ankle surgery in December, but this report would mean he could play as early as March. However, the Bucks will ease him back into action upon his return after such an extended absence, and he's not really worth owning in most leagues while Michael Carter-Williams and Jerryd Bayless are healthy.

  • Zach LaVine scores 30 points
    Zach LaVine was named MVP of the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge during a 157-154 win over Team World on Friday, scoring 30 points with seven rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He had a little preview for his big show tomorrow night when he defends his crown for the Slam Dunk Contest. D'Angelo Russell (22), Devin Booker (23) and Jordan Clarkson (25) were all over 20 points for Team USA. LaVine is growing more as a shooting guard and should play minutes close to 30 going forward.

  • Vasquez (ankle) still has no timetable
    Greivis Vasquez (ankle surgery) still has no timetable for a return.

    Advice: He was reportedly aiming to return to the court at the end of January, but that was always way too optimistic. The Bucks are falling out of the playoff hunt, so they won't be in a hurry to rush the guard back. Vasquez is not worst stashing in most formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:14 am

  • Jason Kidd praises Jerryd Bayless
    Bucks coach Jason Kidd praised Jerryd Bayless for his improved 3-point shot.

    Advice: "He has worked extremely hard at it and put a lot of time into it," Kidd said. "He is not short on confidence, so right now he is shooting the three at a very high level." Bayless has the fifth best 3-point percentage in the NBA at 43.6 percent, and he's also playing well off the bench with averages of 11.6 points, 3.4 boards, 3.2 assists and 2.8 treys over his last five games. If Michael Carter-Williams is dealt at the deadline, Bayless would be worth a pickup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:40 am
  • Mayo scores two points in start
    O.J. Mayo scored two points with one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block, three turnovers and four fouls in 20 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

    Advice: Yeah, this is another case of don't overrate starters. Mayo did get in early foul trouble again, but he is still not a fantasy option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:57 pm

  • Toney Douglas plays 25 minutes
    Toney Douglas played 25 minutes on Thursday with 10 points, two rebounds, one assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: With Bryce Dejean-Jones out tonight, there were more minutes up for grabs. The Pelicans have some extra run to go around, so chances are Douglas won't play much going forward. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:21 pm
  • Norris Cole scores 15
    Norris Cole scored 15 points with five rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

    Advice: He likely has the job locked up with Tyreke Evans (knee) out for the year. Cole is only hanging around 12th-round value since Evans went down, so chances are he's being overrated. He's still worth owning, but his un-friendly game for fantasy makes him a trade candidate with the Evans news. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:19 pm
  • Gary Neal (right leg) ruled out for Thursday
    Gary Neal (right leg) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: It'll be Neal's second straight game on the sidelines with a sore leg, but he's not a major part of the rotation anyway with Bradley Beal healthy. Ramon Sessions and Garrett Temple will pick up some extra minutes in Neal's absence, but that doesn't mean much at all in fantasy hoops. Neal should be good to go after the All-Star break.

  • NO working on long-term deal w/ Dejean-Jones
    The Pelicans are reportedly in negotiations to sign Bryce Dejean-Jones for the remainder of the season, although a deal is not likely to be finalized until after the All-Star break.

    Advice: Dejean-Jones will not be available for Thursday's game vs. the Thunder as his second 10-day deal expired on Wednesday, but it sounds like the Pelicans would like to factor him into their long-term plans. However, Eric Gordon (finger) is expected to return to the court by late-February, so Hot Mustard's long-term outlook in New Orleans isn't great. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:18 pm

  • Toney Douglas listed as probable starter
    Toney Douglas is being listed as the probable starter for Thursday's game vs. OKC.

    Advice: Bryce Dejean-Jones is no longer with the team after his second 10-day contract expired, and while game notes are notoriously unreliable, New Orleans doesn't have all that many options with Tyreke Evans (knee) and Eric Gordon (finger) sidelined. If Douglas does start, he could be used as a streamer option for those seeking some 3-point shooting and steals. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:42 am
  • Gary Neal questionable for Thursday vs Bucks
    Gary Neal (sore right leg) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Neal was unable to participate in shootaround and looks in danger of missing his second straight game. He's only averaging 15.8 minutes per game in his last 10 contests, so Neal should be left on waivers regardless of health. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:57 am

  • Patrick Beverley will miss Skills Competition
    Patrick Beverley (left ankle) will miss the Skills Competition this weekend in Toronto.

    Advice: Beverley wants to rest his ankle over the All-Star Break and will not defend his Skills Competition title. Beverley should be ready go when the second half of the season starts, but he's only averaging just 8.9 points and 2.8 assists on the season and isn't worth owning in standard fantasy leagues.

  • Bryce Dejean-Jones looking for season deal
    Bryce Dejean-Jones is hoping to sign an NBA deal for the rest of the season.

    Advice: Dejean-Jones' second 10-day contract with the Pelicans expired without a contract and the 25-year-old is now seeking a long-term deal with the Pelicans or another team. It's unclear where Hot Mustard will end up after the break, but he averaged just 6.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.9 three-pointers in 11 games with the Pelicans and should only be in the radar in deeper fantasy leagues.

  • Pat Beverley is a little dinged up
    Pat Beverley said he had some treatment on his left ankle.

    Advice: This is the ankle that has bothered him for a good chunk of this season. He tweaked his ankle and it doesn't sound serious. Beverley said he will see how he feels for the Skills Competition in Toronto. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:11 am

  • Rockets falling apart after loss?
    Jason Terry was reportedly heard walking through the media room on his way to the locker room saying the Rockets lacked chemistry.

    Advice: "No chemistry with that group. [expletive] horrible," Terry reportedly said. The Rockets dropped out of the top eight in the Western Conference and this break is not going to be fun. It's worth noting this report was also confirmed from other reporters. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:08 am
  • Zach LaVine starts w/ Tayshaun sidelined
    Zach LaVine started in place of Tayshaun Prince on Wednesday, pitching in 13 points, four rebounds, five assists and one block in 38 minutes vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: Prince missed the game to attend Chauncey Billups' jersey retirement in Detroit, so we expect him to resume starting on the other side of the break. LaVine shot just 4-of-13 from the field tonight but the playing time is encouraging, and it's not purely a result of Prince's absence -- he's logged 30+ minutes in five of the Wolves' past nine games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:14 pm
  • Archie Goodwin in news for the wrong reasons
    Archie Goodwin scored 20 points with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Warriors on Wednesday.

    Advice: He'll be in the news tomorrow because Markieff Morris got into it with him and Morris had his hand around Goodwin's neck. There is talk of Brandon Knight (groin) coming back, but Goodwin should remain owned until Knight is on the court. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:12 pm
  • Cory Joseph shoots 4-of-11 off bench vs. MIN
    Cory Joseph chipped in eight points, five rebounds and four assists in 27 minutes vs. the Wolves on Wednesday, but he shot just 4-of-11 from the field without any 3-pointers or steals.

    Advice: Dwane Casey credited CoJo with changing the course of Monday's game with his "grit and grime," but Joseph's blue-collar efforts rarely result in fantasy value. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:12 pm
  • Steve Blake logs 19 minutes w/ R-Jax out
    Steve Blake had six points and one turnover in 19 minutes on Wednesday, marking his first appearance since Jan. 16.

    Advice: The veteran is buried on the depth chart behind Reggie Jackson and Brandon Jennings, and he only played tonight because Jackson was sick. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:51 pm
  • Brandon Jennings starts, scores 16 points
    Brandon Jennings made his first start of the season on Wednesday and had 16 points, four 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 29 minutes of action.

    Advice: Reggie Jackson was out due to an illness and B-Jennings will return to a bench role after the All-Star break, assuming he's still in Detroit. He'll need a tailor-made situation to be worth owning in standard leagues, even if he is traded, as he's shooting a paltry 36.2 percent from the field with just 2.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.1 blocks in 17.5 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:49 pm
  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) out again Wednesday
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) didn't play vs. the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Advice: The veteran has no timetable so it's logical that Denver held him out through the All-Star break. Emmanuel Mudiay is playing huge minutes in Nelson's absence, with Randy Foye (six points in 21 minutes) filling in as a makeshift backup PG. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:42 pm
    Injured
     
  • Norris Cole scores 11 in start
    Norris Cole scored 11 points with two rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has a clear runway for minutes now with Tyreke Evans (knee) likely out for the season. Cole hasn't really lit it up as a fantasy asset with just 12th-round value in the eight games since Evans has been out, so he might be slightly overvalued. He is still worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:14 pm
  • Bryce Dejean-Jones scores 17 in 43 minutes
    Bryce Dejean-Jones is not expected to play on Thursday.

    Advice: His contract is up and the team is in negotiations. Dejean-Jones has a pretty decent chance to be signed after the break, but the team may opt to wait until after the deadline. He scored nine points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:07 pm

  • Brandon Jennings will start vs. Denver
    Brandon Jennings will start on Wednesday against the Nuggets.

    Advice: Reggie Jackson was a late scratch due to an illness, so the Pistons will have a chance to showcase Jennings. Although, coach Stan Van Gundy has shot down every trade rumor. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:31 pm
  • Zach LaVine will start Wednesday vs. Toronto
    Zach LaVine will start Wednesday vs. the Raptors with Tayshaun Prince (personal) away from the team.

    Advice: Andrew Wiggins will slide over to the three with LaVine back in the starting five, and Shabazz Muhammad will have the opportunity for some extended run off the bench sans Prince. LaVine does have a tough matchup tonight, so owners should take that into consideration before activating him. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:20 pm
  • Jerryd Bayless plays 32 minutes in win
    Jerryd Bayless played 32 minutes vs. the Celtics on Tuesday with 14 points, two assists, one board and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: O.J. Mayo and Michael Carter-Williams were both in foul trouble, so that explains the bump in minutes. Bayless was getting 27.7 minutes per game in February prior to Tuesday, but that number could dip with Mayo back in the mix. He's better suited for deeper leagues, but is also someone to watch in case MCW is moved at the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:17 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) plays 18 minutes
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) returned from an 11-game absence and started at point guard on Tuesday vs. the Celtics, but he failed to score in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He struggled with foul trouble and missed both of his shots, but he did have six assists and a rebound. "We might not have a true point guard but O.J. thrived in this situation last time," Coach Jason Kidd said regarding his decision to start Mayo. "We'll see how it goes this time." Mayo might stick with the first unit even though he was pretty rusty, but Michael Carter-Williams closed out Tuesday's game and is still the PG to own in Milwaukee. Mayo is only on the radar in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:41 pm

  • O.J. Mayo starting, Carter-Williams benched
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will start Tuesday vs. the Celtics, sending Michael Carter-Williams to the bench.

    Advice: The Bucks will roll out a starting five of Mayo, Kris Middleton, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Jabari Parker and Miles Plumlee for Tuesday's game with MCW and Greg Monroe coming off the bench. It'll be interesting to see how many minutes Jason Kidd gives Mayo given that O.J. has spent the past 11 games on the sidelines, but Carter-Williams' playing time looks ready to take a hit with both Mayo and Jerryd Bayless active.

  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play on Tuesday
    O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

  • Jerryd Bayless, O.J. Mayo will play Tuesday
    Jerryd Bayless (ankle) and O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Bayless was probable heading into this one, so no surprises here. He's been playing well as of late, owning averages of 15.5 points, 3.5 assists and 3.5 three-pointers per game over the past week, and he's someone to consider stashing away in deep leagues with trade rumors swirling around Michael Carter-Williams. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:25 pm
  • Gary Neal out Tuesday against Knicks
    Gary Neal (sore right leg) will miss Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

    Advice: Neal was unable to go through shootaround and will sit for Tuesday's matchup against the Knicks. Garrett Temple will pick up a few extra minutes with Neal out, but isn't worth a start in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:22 am

  • Gary Neal limited at shootaround on Tuesday
    Gary Neal (sore right leg) was extremely limited at shootaround on Tuesday.

    Advice: We'll keep an eye on his status, but Neal looks to be doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Knicks. He's not an option in standard fantasy leagues anyway, so fantasy owners can feel free to move on to the next blurb. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:35 am

  • Archie Goodwin scores 20 points in loss
    Archie Goodwin scored 20 points with four rebounds, seven assists and two turnovers against the Thunder on Monday night.

    Advice: Coach Earl Watson said after the game he thought Goodwin had a "solid" effort and he really liked that Goodwin only had two turnovers. It'll be interesting to see what happens when Brandon Knight comes back, but Goodwin should still be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:02 pm
  • Zach LaVine scores 12 points in loss
    Zach LaVine scored 12 points with two boards, two assists, one 3-pointer and three blocks on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: The blocks were obviously a career high and he didn't record more than one block in a game this season prior to tonight. LaVine was 4-of-10 from the field in the loss and didn't have any turnovers, so his fantasy arrow is still pointing up. As the year progresses, his role should only grow. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:22 pm
  • Norris Cole scores 10 points in win
    Norris Cole scored 10 points with six assists, three boards and one turnover in 32 minutes vs. the Wolves on Monday.

    Advice: Coach Alvin Gentry seems to love Cole and he has played 30 or more minutes in seven out of his last eight games. He had a 26-point game in his last outing with five assists, so he is worth owning in standard leagues until he cools off or until the Pelicans get some healthy bodies back. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:07 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 Monday, 3:56 pm
    Injured
     
  • Jerryd Bayless (ankle) is probable
    Jerryd Bayless (ankle) is probable for Tuesday against the Celtics.

    Advice: He suffered a minor tweak over the weekend and should be good to go. Bayless will back up Michael Carter-Williams and is only a low-end stash with MCW possibly being traded. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:54 pm
  • O.J. Mayo expected to return on Tuesday night
    O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) is expected to make his return on Tuesday vs. Boston.

    Advice: This confirms an earlier report, and all signs point to the veteran guard finally getting back on the floor. Following an 11-game absence, expect Mayo to be eased back into action. With Mayo and Jerryd Bayless once again in the mix, those with Michael Carter-Williams on the roster should be paying very close attention to the minutes distribution in Milwaukee.

  • Jameer Nelson (wrist) doubtful to play Monday
    Jameer Nelson (wrist) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Nets.

    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not play on Sunday vs. the Knicks as expected.

  • Archie Goodwin scores 14 points in loss
    Archie Goodwin scored 14 points with six boards, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in Saturday's loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: He unfortunately had more turnovers (4) than assists for the third time in his last five games, but to be fair Goodwin is still learning how to be a point guard. Brandon Knight (groin) will be sidelined through the All-Star break and possibly more, so Goodwin is still worth holding onto if you don't mind the heavy turnovers. It also helps that Knight is a potential shut-down candidate with the Suns playing for ping pong balls. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:39 pm
  • Norris Cole gets hot, scores 26 points
    Norris Cole scored a career-high 26 points with two rebounds, five assists, one steal, five turnovers and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Advice: He started the second half on fire with 12 points in the first three minutes of the third quarter. Cole is up and down, but he's played well in most of the games since Tyreke Evans (knee) went down. With Tyreke out for at least this week, holding Cole in standard leagues makes sense. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:42 pm
  • Dejean-Jones has a letdown in loss
    Bryce Dejean-Jones scored one point with one rebound and two assists in 20 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Advice: Ouch. Dejean-Jones played the greatest game of his pro career on Thursday, but he wasn't getting any looks tonight with the Pelicans unable to do anything in the open floor. He's only worth a look in deep leagues, but expect him to have a better night next time. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:34 pm

  • Toney Douglas doesn't score
    Toney Douglas played 14 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday with one assist and three missed shots from the field.

    Advice: It's one of the greatest mysteries why Douglas is getting run because the Pelicans continue to get torched while he's out there. He is only taking away from the other guys and has very little fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:30 pm
  • Brandon Jennings scores just four
    Brandon Jennings scored four points with three assists, one steal and one turnover in 16 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

    Advice: This was a good matchup to go with Jennings next to Reggie Jackson, but that didn't happen. Jennings looks like a cut candidate for those who added him after the Kentavious Caldwell-Pope injury. If you want to stash him until the deadline for deeper leagues, that's not a bad idea. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:55 pm
  • Patrick Beverley scores four in loss
    Patrick Beverley made 2-of-10 from the field for four points during a 96-79 loss to the Blazers on Saturday, adding one rebound, one assist and one block in 28 minutes.

    Advice: The Rockets were a disaster and didn't get their first bench points until 11:18 left in the fourth. As for Beverley, this game is nothing to worry about and his minutes are safe, especially with the other non-James Harden guards struggling. He should flirt with mid-round value going forward.

  • Jerryd Bayless scores 15 points
    Jerryd Bayless scored 15 points with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: He scored all 15 points in the first half and disappeared after that. Bayless does have some stash appeal with some trade rumors popping up on Michael Carter-Williams, but it's only for deeper leagues right now. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:16 pm
  • Kidd expects Mayo (hamstring) to play Tuesday
    Jason Kidd said that he expects O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) to play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Mayo was able to get through a full practice on Thursday unscathed, so it sounds like he'll be ready to get back on the court Tuesday night following an 11 game absence. Mayo will likely be eased back into the rotation in Milwaukee, and with averages of just 9.1 points, 1.2 three-pointers and 1.2 steals on 37.4 percent shooting on the year, he can safely remain on the wire in most leagues.

  • 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.

  • Norris Cole scores two points in 13 minutes
    Norris Cole scored two points on 1-of-10 from the field against the Lakers on Thursday, adding two assists, two steals and one turnover in 13 minutes.

    Advice: He was in foul trouble tonight and coach Alvin Gentry just opted to keep him out. Cole had some major problems with consistency in his Miami days, but he's been fine up until tonight. He's only a low-end guy and should hold some value while Tyreke Evans (knee) is without a timetable. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:52 pm
  • Toney Douglas plays six minutes
    Toney Douglas played six minutes with one assist and one steal against the Lakers on Thursday.

    Advice: He had a net rating of minus-49.6 in six minutes tonight, so that might have been costly. Douglas has a net rating of minus-39.8 in his last three games. This lack of playing time may continue for Douglas to free up some burn for Bryce Dejean-Jones. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:43 pm
  • Bryce Dejean-Jones scores 17 in 43 minutes
    Bryce Dejean-Jones posted career-highs 17 points and 43 minutes against the Lakers on Thursday, adding nine rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He was a ball of energy out there and played most of his minutes at his natural two-guard spot. Dejean-Jones is almost a lock to get signed for the rest of the year with his NBA body and ability to get to the cup. He's only worth a look in deep leagues, but the undrafted free agent looks like a nice steal for the Pelicans right now. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:40 pm

  • Pat Beverley scores six with six dimes
    Pat Beverley filled the stat sheet against the Suns on Thursday with six points, five rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

    Advice: This is the quintessential Pat-Bev line with a little bit of everything and low scoring. Beverley isn't the player your fantasy competitors will be jealous over, but he does have fifth-round value in 2016 in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:20 pm

  • Archie Goodwin scores 22 points in loss
    Archie Goodwin scored 22 points against the Rockets on Thursday, adding one rebound, seven assists, two 3-pointers and six turnovers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: The Suns are really embracing the pass, but sometimes the plays aren't there and that led to their 24 turnovers tonight. Goodwin's minutes seem to be locked up until late February at the very least, so he's worth holding in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:59 pm
  • No SG minutes for Brandon Jennings
    Brandon Jennings played 16 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday with 11 points, three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He did not get any shooting guard minutes tonight after getting 5.1 in the second half on Wednesday -- that had a lot to do with the smaller matchup against the Celtics. Jennings is more likely to get some SG minutes against the Pacers in the next one. He's not anywhere near the pickup Stanley Johnson is, but he's worth a very long look if you need a point guard. A trade would help him, too. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:21 pm
  • O.J. Mayo (hamstring) out Friday vs. Utah
    O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Mayo was able to go through a full practice with the Bucks on Thursday, and head coach Jason Kidd said that he's looking good, so at least Mayo is getting close to a return after spending half of January on the sidelines. However, O.J. is averaging just 9.1 points, 1.2 steals and 1.2 three-pointers per game on 37.4 percent shooting, so even when he does get back on the court, there's not much reason to own him in most formats.

    Jameer Nelson (wrist) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Chicago.

  • SVG shoots down Brandon Jennings trade rumors
    Stan Van Gundy said that there's no truth to the Brandon Jennings-to-Brooklyn trade rumors.

    Advice: Van Gundy said that the media was "making [stuff] up," when asked for his thoughts on the recent rumors, and it's worth noting that Sheridan Hoops isn't always the most reliable source for these kinds of things. It doesn't sound like there's currently anything brewing between the Nets and Pistons, which is unfortunate for Jennings, because he could really benefit from a move outside of Detroit.

  • Report: Brandon Jennings being linked to BKN?
    The Pistons and Nets have reportedly been discussing a potential trade that would send Brandon Jennings to Brooklyn in exchange for Thaddeus Young.

    Advice: Several teams around the league have reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Jennings, but Brooklyn has the most obvious need for a starting point guard after Jarret Jack suffered a season-ending knee injury. According to sources of Sheridan Hoops, the Nets may need to include an additional asset to get things done, which could be Shane Larkin or Jack. A move to Brooklyn could only be good for Jennings' fantasy value, while Young would really hurt the value of Ersan Ilyasova and Stanley Johnson in Detroit. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:44 pm
  • Zach LaVine gets 34 minutes, scores 17
    Zach LaVine scored 17 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Sam Mitchell went with a lineup quartet of LaVine, Ricky Rubio, Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns for 15.3 minutes -- that combo actually has a positive net rating on the year, too. The UCLA product has hinted he likes playing shooting guard more and he's had some solid success there recently. LaVine should be owned in standard leagues. Additionally, he will be in the dunk contest next week. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:57 pm
  • Norris Cole scores 14 vs. Spurs
    Norris Cole scored 14 points with four rebounds, nine assists, one steal and two turnovers in 34 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He continues to surprise with the increased assists, averaging 7.5 per game in his last four. Cole has put up seventh-round value in that span, which is pretty close to his ceiling. That's still enough to give him a long look until we see Tyreke Evans (knee) back on the court. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:27 pm
  • Bryce Dejean-Jones looking good in reality
    Bryce Dejean-Jones scored eight points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He just signed his second 10-day deal on Monday and the Pelicans are likely going to sign him for the rest of the season next week. He hasn't busted loose on the stat sheet yet, but he is a potentially high-usage guy with a nice upside for steals and treys to go with the scoring. He's obviously only a deep stash in case the Pels go on a shut-down spree. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:22 pm

  • Brandon Jennings could see a boost for DET
    Brandon Jennings played 20 minutes and hit 2-of-8 shots for five points, two rebounds and three assists on Wednesday.

    Advice: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope left early with a groin injury, and it sounds like KCP will miss time. While guys like Stanley Johnson, Marcus Morris and Ersan Ilyasova will all see a boost in minutes, Jennings could as well. He's not a must-add player, but he should definitely be on your radar going forward, especially if KCP is going to miss a lot of time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:50 pm
  • 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

  • Zach LaVine scores 14 w/ seven dimes
    Zach LaVine scored 14 points with seven assists, one board, two 3-pointers and four turnovers in 26 minutes vs. the Lakers on Tuesday.

    Advice: He split his minutes at point guard and shooting guard, and that trend will likely continue unless Ricky Rubio goes down. The Wolves will more than likely increase his minutes after the All-Star break and he is averaging 20.6 points, 3.8 assists and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five games, so he's worth owning in all leagues.

  • Jerryd Bayless scores 16 points off the bench
    Jerryd Bayless scored 16 points off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Blazers with five assists, one board, one block and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Michael Carter-Williams was poor in this one with just two points and two assists in 26 minutes, so this could be a position battle to watch moving forward now that the Bucks have lost four straight games. Bayless is averaging 8.6 points, 3.4 assists, 2.8 boards and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five games, and he's only worth a speculative add in deeper leagues unless coach Jason Kidd decides to shake up his lineup.

  • Archie Goodwin drops 18 & 12 in loss
    Archie Goodwin broke out of a funk on Tuesday, racking up 18 points, a career-high 12 assists and two 3-pointers on 7-of-12 shooting in 45 minutes.

    Advice: Wow. Just when it looked like the Goodwin party might be coming to an end, he pulled a great game out of his hat. He came in averaging just 4.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists over his last two games, hitting 4-of-26 shots. He righted the ship tonight and if he was dropped, or you've had your eye on him, it's time to pick him up. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:04 pm
