    • Al-Farouq Aminu scores 12 points
      Al-Farouq Aminu filled it up against the Nets on Saturday with 12 points, five rebounds, two assists, four steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers on 4-of-4 from the field. Rotoworld.com

    • Tony Allen scores 11 off the bench
      Tony Allen scored 11 points against the Wolves on Saturday with two rebounds, one assist, two steals and one turnover against.

      Advice: Coach Dave Joerger said he could be looking to make a tweak to the starters on the wing, which means Allen would likely move into the first unit. However, his minutes and opportunities to score probably won't change much. Allen has been outside of the top 200 in the past month, so he's not worth owning right now. Rotoworld.com

    • Andrea Bargnani scores 19 points vs. Raptors
      Andrea Bargnani scored 19 points in a big win over the Raptors on Saturday with three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: Take that, Masai Ujiri! Kidding aside, Bargnani seems to have his role as the primary scorer in the first unit. Although, there really isn't going to be much besides the scoring. He's worth a look in points leagues, but owners in standard leagues can probably shoot for a higher upside. Il Mago also disappears a lot because of injuries. Rotoworld.com

    • Lou Williams scores 22 points off the bench
      Lou Williams scored 22 points against the Knicks on Saturday with two rebounds, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: He logged 15 minutes as the backup point guard and that might continue if the Raptors rest Kyle Lowry more. Before tonight, Williams was struggling in the second half with averages of 14.3 points, 1.8 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.5 treys on 41.0 percent from the field. He's still a solid player to own in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Marcin Gortat drops 16 points, 17 boards
      Marcin Gortat grabbed a season-high 17 boards against the Pistons during a 99-95 win on Saturday, adding 16 points, one block and three steals.

      Advice: Time after time big men have been torching the Pistons frontcourt. Gortat has finally seen his his numbers come up with double-digit boards and at least one block in each of his last five games. If you were able to buy low over the break, you're probably seeing some nice dividends. Rotoworld.com

    • Greg Monroe has worst game in a while
      Greg Monroe was quiet against the Wizards on Saturday with 21 points, 10 rebounds, one steal, one block and one steal in 33 minutes during a 99-95 loss.

      Advice: While this was a solid game, the Pistons really have to work on their defense. They have allowed the likes of Nene, Marcin Gortat, Lou Amundson and Andrea Bargnani to go off on them this weekend. As for Monroe's production, it's been consistent and he is one of the better bets for a double-double on a given night. Andre Drummond had 13 points, nine rebounds and one block tonight.

    • Spencer Dinwiddie scores 20, Jackson benched
      Spencer Dinwiddie scored a career-high 20 points against the Wizards on Saturday with four rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

      Advice: He was fantastic tonight and coach Stan Van Gundy went with the rookie down the stretch. Dinwiddie attempted good shots all night and he also wasn't too shabby on defense. As nice as this was, the Pistons are still going to give Reggie Jackson a lot of run most nights. Dinwiddie is only worth an add in deep leagues for now, but keep an eye on him for his upside in several fantasy categories. Rotoworld.com

    • Patrick Patterson moves back to bench Sat.
      Patrick Patterson will move back to the bench for Saturday's game vs. the Knicks, allowing Amir Johnson to reclaim his spot in the starting lineup.

      Advice: Patterson scored just four points in a start against the Warriors on Friday, but head coach Dwane Casey probably needs his scoring punch off the bench. It's safe to leave Patterson on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 4:35 pm
    • Amir Johnson starting again on Saturday
      Amir Johnson is start against the Knicks on Saturday and Patrick Patterson is coming off the bench.

      Advice: This move might be due to Kyle Lowry not playing or it could be due to how the Raptors were thumped on Friday. Regardless, there isn't much fantasy impact here and Johnson remains only a low-end player to own in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) doubtful Sunday
      DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game vs. Portland.

      Advice: While he wasn't able to practice on Saturday, he was able to get a few shots up afterwards. Cousins was held out of Friday's game vs. the Spurs, and with the Kings going nowhere in the Western Conference, they will probably err on the side of caution Sunday. Jason Thompson is coming off a double-double and would be worth a look in daily leagues if Cousins sits, while Carl Landry and Reggie Evans will see increased roles as well. Expect another update after shootaround Sunday morning. Rotoworld.com

    • Cleanthony Early is starting again on Sat
      The Knicks are starting Langston Galloway, Cleanthony Early, Tim Hardaway Jr., Lou Amundson and Andrea Bargnani on Saturday against the Raptors.

      Advice: Early played poorly on Friday and it'll likely be Shane Larkin picking up most of the playing time. Early is not worth owning in almost any league right now. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 3:00 pm
    • DeMarcus Cousins doesn't practice on Saturday
      DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) did not practice on Saturday and he is up in the air for Sunday against the Blazers.

      Advice: He tried to play through his ankle sprain from Wednesday and it's apparently costing him playing time. The Kings will likely update Cousins again tomorrow morning, but he should be considered questionable for now. With Cousins out on Friday, Jason Thompson double-doubled and Ben McLemore also stepped up with 21 points. Both should have a similar chance to perform sans DMC. Rotoworld.com

    • Jose Calderon (Achilles) out for Saturday
      Jose Calderon (Achilles) will not play on Saturday against the Raptors.

      Advice: An MRI revealed he has a strain in his Achilles and it's fair to assume he's going to miss multiple games. Calderon said he doesn't want to shut it down, but he's usually taken a long time to recover from injuries. With Calderon out, Shane Larkin is going to benefit most, but he's still not worth grabbing in standard leagues. Langston Galloway will also have more opportunity. Rotoworld.com

    • Shaw: Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) out 'for a while'
      Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) is "out a while" due to his ankle sprain, according to coach Brian Shaw.

      Advice: There is no timetable, but the sense is that he's going to need at least a week or maybe even a month to get over this injury. Nurkic was posting some elite value and could have been a top-50 player the rest of the way, so his owners will have to weigh their options on keeping him. While he's out, Joffrey Lauvergne seems to be benefitting most, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Rajon Rondo says spat with Carlisle is over
      Rajon Rondo made it clear that his spat with head coach Rick Carlisle is over and that he is ready to move on.

      Advice: "Definitely, he had some frustrations with me and vice-versa," Rondo said. "So communication is definitely key in this situation. We’ve had a couple talks since then, and we’re going to move forward." Rondo was suspended for Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks, but he is expected to start against the Nets on Saturday, sending J.J. Barea back to the bench. However, Rondo is averaging just 7.5 points, 4.3 assists and 1.8 rebounds in his last four games, so his owners would be advised to leave him on the bench until he turns things around. Rotoworld.com

    • Wes Johnson hopes to remain a Laker
      With free agency looming, Wes Johnson is hopeful that he will remain with the Lakers.

      Advice: "I want to definitely stay here," said Johnson. "I like coach [Byron] Scott and the whole coaching staff. I love it here. I definitely want to be a part of when they get back." Johnson has struggled to show any kind of consistency since entering the NBA, and that story hasn't changed in Los Angeles. Johnson has averages of 9.5 points, 3.8 boards, 1.7 assists and 1.2 3-pointers in 29.0 minutes per game this season, but his role varies on a nightly basis. Until Johnson can string together a few good performances, he belongs on the waiver wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Greg Monroe noncommittal over free agency
      Greg Monroe was noncommittal when asked about his thoughts on becoming a free agent in this summer.

      Advice: "I'm not thinking about it right now, honestly," Monroe said before Friday's loss to the Knicks. "I’m focusing on what I have to do for this team. It’s something down the line. When I get to that point, I’ll always make the right decision for me and my family, but right now I’m just focusing what I have to do here." The Knicks are among the teams said to be interested in prying Monroe away from Detroit in the summer, and after averaging 15.6 points, 10.5 boards and 2.0 assists per game this season, it's clear that Monroe will have plenty of suitors.

    • Lin posts 14-5-6 line in win over Bucks
      Jeremy Lin scored 14 points on 4-of-10 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes off the bench in the Lakers' 101-93 win over the Bucks on Friday.

      Advice: Lin has hovered around the bottom of the top-150 over the last month but has picked it up over the last week or so. Bryon Scott has said that he's thinking of starting Lin at some point, but that's not necessarily the driver of his value. He's worth a pickup though for the chance he can make a late-season run. Rotoworld.com

    • Ilyasova drops 17 and 12 onto the Lakers
      Ersan Ilyasova scored 17 points on 5-of-10 shooting (1-of-4 3PTs, 6-of-8 FTs) with 12 rebounds and one steal in Friday's loss to the Lakers.

      Advice: Ilyasova has been a top 70-100 value (9/8 cat) in his last four games, a sample that has more or less been his ceiling this season. Perhaps he's ready to turn over a new leaf, but realistically he can't be considered more than a flier pickup until he shows us a bit more. Rotoworld.com

    • Ingles posts low-end line against Nuggets
      Joe Ingles scored seven points on 3-of-5 shooting (including a three) with four rebounds, five assists and one steal over 21 minutes on Friday against the Nuggets.

      Advice: Ingles and Elijah Millsap (seven points, three rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block, 25 minutes) have flashed humble potential in fantasy leagues, but there's probably not enough food to go around. Rotoworld.com

    • Beverley returns from his illness on Friday
      Patrick Beverley (illness) returned to action in Friday's win over the Nets, scoring nine points on 3-of-9 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, three assists and three steals in 34 minutes.

      Advice: This is better than we thought he'd do after multiple weeks looking banged up and/or sick. We're not sure he's over his current flu right now so owners should approach him with caution, but he's probably worth a pickup if he has been dropped after a really cold stretch. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 12:19 am
    • Wes Matthews hurts hand, doesn't need X-ray
      Wesley Matthews hurt his hand on Friday and said he doesn't need an X-ray.

      Advice: The injury occurred late in the game, so he didn't have to play through it. Matthews didn't play well tonight, making 2-of-13 from the field for eight points with six rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers. He should be ready to roll for the Kings on Sunday. Rotoworld.com

    • Bass plays just 20 minutes on Friday
      Brandon Bass played just 20 minutes in Friday's win over the Hornets, scoring eight points on 3-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds and one block.

      Advice: Bass saw his minutes clipped with Jonas Jerebko (16 points, 10 boards) playing so well tonight and that's with no Kelly Olynyk (ankle) around, too. The emergence of Jerebko is a real concern but owners might want to wait a game or two before weighing in on a drop considering Bass has been fairly productive lately. Rotoworld.com

    • Bradley scores 19 points with three treys
      Avery Bradley scored 19 points on 8-of-18 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds, two assists and one steal in Friday's win over the Hornets.

      Advice: Bradley looks great next to his pal Isaiah Thomas as he doesn't need the ball in his hands much and he's getting great looks in the flow of the offense. Yes, his recent spurt has come against a bunch of bad teams, but the Thomas bump looks real and he should be in all lineups right now. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:42 pm
    • Turner posts a dud in win over Hornets
      Evan Turner managed just two points on 1-of-5 shooting with six rebounds and seven assists in 30 minutes on Friday.

      Advice: Turner didn't have a three, steal or block per usual, and he's the guy whose minutes are likely to take a hit with others excelling. Outside of strict points leagues he hasn't been worth much, and owners can find something better on the wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:33 pm
    • Jerebko double-doubles with 16 & 10
      Jonas Jerebko double-doubled off the bench on Friday, scoring 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting (including three treys) with 10 rebounds, three assists and one block in 24 minutes.

      Advice: Jerebko fits the Celtics' spread attack very well and he's worth a very hard look right now. He has only averaged 16.5 minutes over his last three games, posting 12.0 points with 2.3 treys, 5.3 boards, 1.7 assists and 0.6 combined steals and blocks in that span. With the way he has looked lately, the playing time should go up. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:31 pm
    • Amir Johnson scores eight off bench
      Amir Johnson moved to the bench against the Warriors on Friday with eight points, four rebounds and three assists and one turnover.

      Advice: He hasn't been playing well on offense, but he should still get close to 26.6 minutes per game. Johnson has put up some underwhelming numbers in February, averaging 7.7 points, 5.7 boards, 1.1 steals and 0.6 steals. He's not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:23 pm
    • Patrick Patterson stinks in a start
      Patrick Patterson started against the Warriors on Friday with four points, two rebounds and one turnover in 22 minutes.

      Advice: This starting lineup usually crushes when it's on the court, but that wasn't the case tonight. Patterson's numbers probably won't change with the starters, but he'll obviously be better than this. He's more of a 14- and 16-team guy right now. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:16 pm
    • Cleanthony Early scores two in start
      Cleanthony Early scored two points in a start against the Pistons on Friday with two rebounds, one steal and one block.

      Advice: He only played 20 minutes and this was not an encouraging game for him. Early had high hopes at the first sign of Carmelo Anthony missing time back in 2014, but it's just not happening. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:45 pm
    • Reappearing Act: Andrea Bargnani scores 25
      Andrea Bargnani turned back the clock against the Pistons on Friday with 25 points, 12 rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

      Advice: He is clearly the first option for the Knicks on offense right now. Bargnani had a 26.9 usage rate tonight, which is a shade above his season 25.3 usage rate. Il Mago started tonight and is almost certainly going to stick. He is a tremendous injury risk and this big line tonight is unlikely to happen again, but he's worth a look in standard leagues. It's hard to believe for a guy who was possibly going to be cut. Take that, Masai Ujiri. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 9:36 pm
    • Patrick Patterson starting over Amir Johnson
      Patrick Patterson will start over Amir Johnson on Friday.

      Advice: It makes a lot of sense on offense to help space the floor for basically every other starter. Patterson's role shouldn't change too much and we're basically just going to see his minutes come next to different guys. Still, he has a nice upside and is worth a look in standard leagues in case he gets an extra 5-8 minutes tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 4:12 pm
    • Pat Beverley is a go, likely on a minutes cap
      Patrick Beverley (illness) will play against the Nets on Friday.

      Advice: He will have a minutes limit tonight. Beverley probably won't be shooting the ball more than six times or so because he's in a slump. He's more of a stash in standard leagues until he gets it going. Jason Terry can be dropped in most leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 4:08 pm
    • Jose Calderon (Achilles) to get an MRI
      Jose Calderon (Achilles) is getting an MRI on Saturday.

      Advice: It sounds like he'll miss some time here and he can be dropped in most leagues. Calderon probably isn't out for the year, but he hasn't played well enough to stash. Langston Galloway will run the point while Cleanthony Early moves into the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com

    • Patrick Beverley expected to play on Friday
      Patrick Beverley (illness) is expected to play against the Nets on Friday.

      Advice: He hasn't been playing well these days, making 19.2 percent from the field in his last three. Beverley probably won't have a lot of shots going his way tonight and is not a great play in fantasy right now. Jason Terry also loses his luster. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:24 pm
    • Cleanthony Early starting for Friday
      Cleanthony Early will start on Friday against the Pistons.

      Advice: He's basically taking Jose Calderon (Achilles) spot with Langston Galloway sliding over to the point. Early has been a disaster this season, so fantasy owners can keep him on the wire in most leagues. We'll let you know how he fares tonight considering he has some upside. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:21 pm
    • Bargnani, Cleanthony Early starting on Friday
      Andrea Bargnani and Cleanthony Early will start on Friday night against the Pistons.

      Advice: Jason Smith will move that the bench. Bargnani had a 30.7 usage rate on Wednesday, so this isn't a big surprise. He has been the main weapon in the offense when he's on the floor, but he's still injured a lot and is not shooting the ball well this season. Since his return, Bargnani averaged 10.8 points, 4.8 boards and 1.0 blocks on 39.5 percent from the field. Add him at your own risk, but letting him be someone else's problem isn't a bad idea. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 3:14 pm
    • DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) ruled out for Friday
      DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Friday.

      Advice: That's a lot of offense to replace with Boogie posting a ridiculous 37.3 usage rate since George Karl took over. Plus, he's on pace to have the highest usage rate for a center in a season ever (among qualifiers for minutes per game). With Boogie out, the Kings are likely going to give his minutes to a combination of Carl Landry, Reggie Evans and Jason Thompson. However, Rudy Gay will likely be very busy tonight and Ben McLemore will also try to build off his 16-point game from Wednesday. Gay will also play a lot of PF, so there are more minutes for Omri Casspi. Rotoworld.com

    • Lin to start over Clarkson at some point?
      Coach Bryon Scott said he is thinking of starting Jeremy Lin at some point.

      Advice: The change is not going to happen tonight with the Lakers sticking with the same starting five. Lin may start over Jordan Clarkson or the team could go with a two-PG lineup, as well. Clarkson has played next to Lin for 23.3 percent of his minutes this season, so this isn't too bold and there won't be many fantasy implications here outside of Wayne Ellington being less appealing.

    • Rajon Rondo goes through full practice Friday
      Rajon Rondo went through a full practice on Friday, and he will return to the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Nets.

      Advice: Rondo has really struggled with the move to Dallas. He's averaging just 9.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.3 steals, and 2.9 turnovers on 40.8 percent shooting since joining the Mavs. He's no longer putting up elite assist totals, which was really his only source of value, and with poor percentages and limited contributions in the major statistical categories, Rondo can be viewed as a drop-candidate in standard leagues.

    • Patrick Beverley (illness) still questionable
      Patrick Beverley (illness) went through the Rockets' shootaround, but he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Brooklyn.

      Advice: We'll be monitoring Beverley's status closely, but if he's forced to sit on Friday, Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni would pick up most of his minutes. Terry has picked up a majority of Beverley's playing time over the past two games, but with averages of 8.5 points, 2.0 assists, 2.5 steals, and 2.5 three-pointers during that span, his value is limited to deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 8:58 am
    • Karl wants Cousins to cut down on the TOs
      Kings' head coach George Karl would like DeMarcus Cousins to cut down on the turnovers.

      Advice: "I talked to [DeMarcus] about his turnovers," Karl said. "He leads the league in turnovers (4.4 per game), and we’d like to challenge him the last 25, 30 games of the season to have much better decision making." Cousins has been careless at times with the ball this season, so it's nice that his coach is challenging him to be better. He’s hitting career-highs in points (23.7), rebounds (12.2), assists (3.3), and blocks (1.7) this season, so a reduction in turnovers could only help his already elite value. Rotoworld.com

      Jose Calderon is not considering shutting it down for the season after his latest Achilles injury.

      Advice: Calderon is currently in a walking boot and is listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Pistons, but it's great to see him eager to return to action despite the Knicks fighting the 76ers for last place in the Eastern Conference. Langston Galloway will be the primary beneficiary if Calderon misses time, while Shane Larkin (illness) could get some increased run as well. Rotoworld.com

    • DeMarcus Cousins (ankle, hip) doubtful Friday
      DeMarcus Cousins (left ankle sprain, left hip contusion) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Spurs.

      Advice: He was unable to practice on Thursday because of these injuries, and we would be shocked if he was able to give it a go on Friday with the Kings going absolutely nowhere in the Western Conference. We will update his status when we know more, but Rudy Gay is going to be a busy man on offense for the Kings if Cousins sits. Jason Thompson, Reggie Evans and Carl Landry will likely all see a bump in minutes on Friday, but none of them are viable options in standard leagues for now. Rotoworld.com

    • DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) questionable Friday
      DeMarcus Cousins (left ankle) was unable to practice on Thursday, and head coach George Karl said he was unsure if Cousins would be able to go Friday vs. the Spurs.

      Advice: This is the first we're hearing of an ankle injury for Cousins, and we'll continue to monitor this situation closely. If he's unable to go on Friday, Ryan Hollins or Reggie Evans would have the opportunity to slide into the starting lineup. It's worth noting that Hollins picked up a DNP-CD during the Kings' last game, while Evans logged 27 minutes, so he seems to be ahead of Hollins in the rotation. Evans is capable of hauling in gaudy rebounding totals, and he'll be a name to watch if listed as the starter on Friday. Rotoworld.com

    • Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) will not play Friday
      Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. Utah, as expected.

      Advice: With Nurkic unavailable, and Darrell Arthur (calf) being listed as doubtful, J.J. Hickson and Kenneth Faried are going to be logging heavy minutes on Friday, while newcomer Joffrey Lauvergne could put up some nice numbers. He had 11 points, nine boards, a steal and a block on Wednesday, when Nurkic got hurt. It's also possible that Wilson Chandler (groin) plays some minutes at power forward, but Denver is simply running out of options. Faried is going to have a lot of opportunity on Friday, so hopefully he can finally bust out of his slump. Rotoworld.com

    • Jose Calderon (Achilles) doubtful for Friday
      Jose Calderon (Achilles) was seen wearing a walking boot during Thursday's practice, and he is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Pistons.

      Advice: With the Knicks playing for draft picks, it's very unlikely that Calderon would play at less than 100 percent, and we fully expect him to sit out of Friday's game. Langston Galloway and Alexey Shved will likely split minutes at the point guard position with Calderon unavailable, and Galloway would make for the best plug-and-play option in daily leagues.

      Patrick Beverley (illness) went through a light practice on Thursday, but he remains questionable for Friday's game against the Nets.

      Advice: The Rockets kept things light on Thursday, mainly going through shooting drills, so Beverley wasn't really tested and his status is still up in the air for Friday's game. If Beverley is again forced to sit on Friday, Jason Terry would get another game with the starting unit, although he remains an unattractive option in most leagues despite the starter-tag.

      Advice: Beverley has missed two consecutive games with flu-like symptoms and needed an IV on Monday. He should have had enough time to recover by Friday night, but Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni would fill in with limited fantasy value if Beverley sits again on Friday. Rotoworld.com

    • DeMarcus Cousins available at trade deadline?
      DeMarcus Cousins was not untouchable at the trade deadline, according to an unnamed source familiar with Kings head coach George Karl's thinking.

      Advice: We'll take the unnamed source with a grain of salt, but according to said source, "At the trade deadline, everyone was available. Every single person [on the Kings roster] was available." Karl does not hold a front office title, but the same source said Karl has control of future personnel decisions and would be interested in acquiring Ty Lawson if he becomes available in the offseason. If these reports hold true, we may be in for a very interesting summer in Sacramento. Rotoworld.com

    • Rajon Rondo unlikely to return to Dallas
      Rajon Rondo is unlikely to return to the Mavericks after this season, according to Tim McMahon of ESPN Dallas.

      Advice: While Tyson Chandler expects Rondo's recent run-in with head coach Rick Carlisle to bring the team closer, McMahon thinks the altercation and ensuing one-game suspension will lead the free-agent-to-be to bolt Dallas after the season. A winning season could cure everything here, but Rondo has spoken about his desire to be wooed during the free agency period so this latest incident likely won't help the Mavericks' chances to retain the mercurial point guard.

    • Rajon Rondo will start vs Nets on Saturday
      Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said Rajon Rondo will start against the Nets on Saturday after serving a one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team.

      Advice: An on-court verbal exchange and ensuing post-game shouting match in the locker room led to a one-game suspension for Rondo, but Carlisle is ready to move forward. "It’s one game, we’ll be off [Thursday]," Carlisle said. "He’ll practice Friday, and he’ll be back in the starting lineup on Saturday. The events of last night are in the past. And we’ve got to move forward." It sounds like it's safe for fantasy owners to plug Rondo back into their lineups for Saturday's game against the Nets, while J.J. Barea and Devin Harris will return to bench roles. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonas Jerebko sees minutes at C for C's
      Jonas Jerebko played some center during Boston's win over New York on Wednesday.

      Advice: Celtics head coach Brad Stevens admitted he was "throwing darts" when he put together the lineup combination that had the 27-year-old at center, but liked what he saw. "He’s got ability to stretch the floor and he does fit well with what we’re trying to do," Stevens said. He added, "He's a big that can shoot, play the 3 or the 4, space the floor. So I like his skill set and I think he’s excited about being here." It's worth monitoring Jerebko's playing time on the rebuilding Celtics, but he's better off left on waivers for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Wesley Matthews bounces back with 31
      Wesley Matthews, who missed all seven of his shots and scored four points on Sunday, got it back on Wednesday, hitting 11-of-18 shots and four 3-pointers for 31 points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals in a win over the Spurs.

      Advice: Yes! Arron Afflalo scored 10 points off the bench, and owners who were scared that Afflalo's presence would ruin Matthews should be feeling much better about things after this performance. And yes, he just went from a season low in scoring to a season high in back-to-back games, which is pretty hard for fantasy studs to do at this point in the season. Rotoworld.com

    • Ingles finally cools off in loss to Lakers
      Joe Ingles, who has seemingly been playing over his head for weeks, missed his only shot and didn't score in 15 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: He did have a steal and a block, but the return of Rodney Hood is eventually going to hurt him, and it looks like we saw the start of that tonight. Elijah Millsap also got hot and scored a career-high 17 points tonight, which is the real reason Ingles never really got back into the game. Rotoworld.com

    • Ersan Ilyasova plays 23 minutes on Wed
      Ersan Ilyasova played 23 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday with 11 points, six rebounds, one assists and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: After playing 35 minutes on Monday, his value actually didn't fall off a cliff today. Coach Jason Kidd seems to be gaining confidence in Ilyasova, but he's missed a lot of games and has basically been in a slump for two seasons. Fantasy owners in FAAB leagues will need to have bulletproof wallets to pay up for Ghostface Ilya. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonas Jerebko comes off bench for 20 points
      Jonas Jerebko came off the bench to hit 7-of-10 shots and four 3-pointers for 20 points, five rebounds, two assists and a steal in just 21 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: This was easily a season high for Jerebko and his best game of the year, as the Tyler Zeller was in foul trouble and the Celtics went small. Keep an eye on him, but it's highly doubtful we'll see him do this again any time soon. Especially since they were playing against the Knicks, aka the worst team in the league. Rotoworld.com

    • Jusuf Nurkic has lateral right ankle sprain
      Jusuf Nurkic suffered a right lateral ankle sprain on Wednesday and X-rays were negative.

      Advice: This is actually not bad news for Nurkic, but he is still very likely to miss time and does not have a timetable to return. He was in a lot of pain and could not put weight on his foot. Nurkic owners should hold him for now because players have limped off the court without putting weight on their leg and play in their next game -- Rodney Stuckey did that over the weekend. With Nurkic out, it looks like fellow rookie Joffrey Lauvergne will step up after posting a nice line on Wednesday with 11 points and nine boards. J.J. Hickson will also play more, but his upside isn't great. Rotoworld.com

    • Evan Turner triple-doubles in win
      Evan Turner hit 5-of-9 shots for 10 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in 34 minutes in another start on Wednesday.

      Advice: Turner is never going to blow you away with his ability to shoot or score, and is hitting just 34 percent of his shots over his last five games, to go along with 10.2 points. But when you consider he's also averaging 7.6 rebounds, 8.6 assists and 1.4 steals over that stretch, owners have learned to live with the parts of his game that stink. Rotoworld.com

    • Andrea Bargnani making some knoise in NY
      Andrea Bargnani played 25 minutes and hit 5-of-13 shots for 17 points, six rebound and two blocks in another Knicks loss.

      Advice: That's four straight games in double figures for Bargs, who also has five blocks over his last five games. He's no longer a threat from downtown, and is likely to get hurt any day now, but if you need a big man and want to take a flier on him, he might be able to stay relevant for a couple more weeks or so.

    • Al-Farouq Aminu disappears in loss to Hawks
      Al-Farouq Aminu played 27 minutes off the bench Wednesday, but hit just 1-of-7 shots for two points and five rebounds.

      Advice: He's had a couple nice games recently, but owners who have rolled the dice on him have also had to suffer through three duds. It all equals out to 7.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.4 blocks on 35 percent shooting over his last five games, which just isn't very helpful. And if he can't get it done with Dirk Nowitzki struggling, and Rajon Rondo, Tyson Chandler and Amare Stoudemire in street clothes, the future doesn't look to promising for his consistency.

    • Jose Calderon out with Achilles soreness
      Jose Calderon is dealing with Achilles soreness and will not return on Wednesday.

      Advice: He said the Achilles issue has been bothering him for weeks. The Knicks went with the Alexey Shved and Langston Galloway backcourt to close out this game, which tells you all you need to know about the state of that team right now. Calderon tends to miss a lot of time with injuries, so he might miss games. We still wouldn't suggest adding Shved or Galloway in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Patrick Beverley (illness) will not play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

      Advice: That's not good against Chris Paul. Beverley needed an IV on Monday, but he should be ready for the weekend. The Rockets will likely start Jason Terry, who scored nine points in 28 minutes on Monday. Pablo Prigioni will also play close to 20 minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • Rondo, Carlisle had 2nd argument after game
      Rajon Rondo and coach Rick Carlisle had another "emotionally charged dispute in the locker room after the game," according to ESPN.com's Tim MacMahon.

      Advice: Rondo is not going to play tonight because of it and these arguments may hurt his playing time going forward, though Carlisle said Rondo will start Saturday's game as usual. The Mavericks are not much better with Rondo on the floor and they probably won't miss him tonight. In fact, his Mavs teammates made only 47.9 percent from the field off passes from Rondo. Before Rondo arrived, the Mavs were making 49.1 percent from the field off Monta Ellis passes. Rondo is not a must-own player in standard leagues. Meanwhile, J.J. Barea and Devin Harris will step up.

    • Mavs suspend Rajon Rondo for one game
      Rajon Rondo has been suspended for Wednesday's game against the Hawks due to conduct detrimental to the team.

      Advice: He got into an argument with Rick Carlisle on Tuesday and his coach benched him after that. Rondo has been awful this season and it'll be interesting to see how the Mavericks put their lineups together. The former Celtic has actually been below average as defender and the Mavericks have also fallen as an offense since he's joined them, so this suspension might help them tonight. With Rondo out, it'll be J.J. Barea likely to start with Devin Harris also getting more run. Expect to see Monta Ellis have a bigger responsibility as well. Rotoworld.com

    • Patrick Beverley (illness) skips shootaround
      Patrick Beverley (illness) was not at shootaround and remains questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

      Advice: He wasn't able to play against the Wolves on Monday due to flu-like symptoms, but it's hard to imagine him not doing everything he can to play against Chris Paul and the Clippers. Beverley will likely be a game-time decision tonight, so his owners will have no choice but to check back later before setting their lineups. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will fill the void for the Rockets if Beverley sits, but James Harden will have even more responsibility on offense if that is the case. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Bass open to returning to Celtics
      Brandon Bass is set to become a free agent in the summer, but said that he is open to returning to the Celtics next season.

      Advice: "If I’m wanted back then yeah, I would want to be back for sure," said Bass. "It’s been a blessing for me to be here four years, to finish out my contract here. I’m excited about that. Hopefully everything will continue to go in a positive direction." Bass has been pressed into a much larger role since Jared Sullinger went down with a season-ending stress fracture in his foot, and while his value will take a hit when Kelly Olynyk (ankle) eventually returns, Bass will probably be worth owning in most leagues for the rest of the way.

    • Cleanthony Early dealing with an ankle sprain
      Cleanthony Early is dealing with a new ankle sprain, leaving his status uncertain for Wednesday's game vs. Boston.

      Advice: Lance Thomas (groin) will not play on Wednesday night, meaning players such as Travis Wear, Quincy Acy and Tim Hardaway Jr. could be in the mix for big minutes vs. the Celtics. Early isn't a reliable option in deeper leagues even when he is healthy, so owners cans safely leave him on the wire. Check back closer to tip-off for the latest updates. Rotoworld.com

    • Rajon Rondo benched after argument w/ coach
      Rajon Rondo had a heated verbal exchange with coach Rick Carlisle early in the third quarter on Tuesday, after which Rondo never re-entered the game.

      Advice: "Emotional game and we had a difference of opinion," Carlisle said afterward. "Once it was over, it was over." Rondo appeared to ignore Carlisle's play call during an offensive possession, which led to a frustrated timeout during which Rondo and his coach openly yelled at one another in the huddle, and the fact that he didn't return to the game suggests it wasn't immediately "over" as Carlisle suggested. Rondo finished with four points and four assists in 18 minutes and we expect him to resume his typical role as a starter vs. Atlanta on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

    • Patrick Patterson (knee) has 12 pts in return
      Patrick Patterson returned from a sore left knee to finish Tuesday's road loss in Dallas with 12 points, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, one assist and one block.

      Advice: He shot 5-of-11 from the field in 28 minutes of action and the knee injury doesn't seem likely to limit him going forward. Pat-Pat's steady contributions in 3-pointers (1.5), rebounds (5.3), steals (1.5) and blocks (0.7) have been enough for mid-round value over the past few months, especially since he shoots well from both the field and the FT line.

      Amir Johnson got into early foul trouble on Tuesday, finishing a 92-99 loss to the Thunder with only six points, six rebounds, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 19 minutes.

      Advice: The fouls didn't help his cause, but Johnson is averaging only 26.7 minutes and he's been fighting through a variety of nagging injuries all season. He's worth holding for help with rebounds, defensive stats and especially FG percentage, but nobody should be expecting a late-season surge from the Raptors' 10-year veteran. Rotoworld.com

      Al-Farouq Aminu tied his season-high with 12 rebounds in 28 minutes vs. Toronto on Tuesday, adding one steal, two blocks, and nine points on 4-of-9 shooting.

      Advice: Aminu has always had intriguing per-minute stats and that's never been more obvious than this season with Dallas. On a per-36-minute basis he's posting 11.6 points, 1.0 threes, 8.7 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.9 blocks. Those are solid stats by any measure and he's worth deploying now that he's settled into a 25-minute role off Rick Carlisle's bench. Rotoworld.com

      Marcin Gortat recorded his 17th double-double of the season on Tuesday with 16 points and 11 rebounds, but he didn't play in the fourth quarter.

      Advice: Gortat made 8-of-11 shots and added three assists and one block in the disappointing loss, and Randy Wittman said he stuck with a small lineup to matchup with Golden State down the stretch. Gortat said he felt "lost" in early February and he even shaved his mohawk in an effort to get himself back on track. He racked up 24 points and 10 boards on Sunday and seems to have regained his confidence, which is good news for fantasy owners and even better news for the Wizards, who are currently fifth in the East.

      Patrick Patterson (left knee sprain) will play on Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

      Advice: Patterson wasn't able to play on Monday against the Pelicans, but the fact that he is returning after just a one-game absence suggests that his injury is likely minor. With season averages of just 8.5 points, 5.5 boards and 1.4 3-pointers in 26.5 minutes per game, his value is limited to deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Patrick Beverley (flu-like symptoms) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

      Advice: Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni filled in for Beverley on Monday as he missed the Rockets' game against the Wolves with the same illness. While neither player had a big game in Beverley's absence, Terry has more fantasy potential of the two if Beverley sits again on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com

      Joe Ingles scored 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 27 minutes on Monday against the Spurs.

      Advice: Ingles started to make some noise before a back injury derailed him, and factoring in the games in which he struggled with it he has been a top-125 guy over the last eight contests. We know he's not exactly a household name but he's worth a look in competitive formats. Rotoworld.com

      Avery Bradley scored 23 points on 8-of-14 shooting (including three treys) with four rebounds, three assists and six steals in Monday's road win over the Suns.

      Advice: Bradley hit all four of his freebies for good measure. The addition of Isaiah Thomas is probably going to help him because of the point guard's ability to penetrate and find shooters on the perimeter. The two had extremely good chemistry tonight and Bradley should be owned in all formats. Rotoworld.com

      Evan Turner logged 32 minutes on Monday against the Suns, scoring 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting (including a three) with eight rebounds, four assists and one steal.

      Advice: By now you know the story with Turner, whose value is depressed in standard leagues due to poor efficiency and bad peripherals. So far the arrival of Isaiah Thomas hasn't hit him yet, but Turner didn't look all that great tonight and there's really no need for him to facilitate the offense with Thomas around. He's really only worth owning in points leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Lou Williams (ankle) scored nine points on 1-of-8 shooting with two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 25 minutes off the bench on Monday.

    • Lou Williams will play on Monday night
      Lou Williams (ankle) will play against the Pelicans on Monday.

      Advice: He missed Saturday due to swelling in his ankle. Williams was on fire before his ankle injury, scoring 26 points on Friday. His fantasy owners can plug him back in. It'll be interesting to see if Terrence Ross gets any minutes at all tonight. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 3:45 pm
    • Patrick Patterson out with knee sprain
      Patrick Patterson (left knee sprain) will not play against the Pelicans on Monday.

      Advice: He played his normal 24 minutes on Saturday, but didn't quite look like himself. Patterson should be considered questionable for Tuesday against the Mavs. Amir Johnson and Jonas Valanciunas should get more minutes with Tyler Hansbrough playing a bit more. James Johnson should also get run at the four. Rotoworld.com
      Monday, 3:41 pm
    • Ersan Ilyasova to start, Jared Dudley benched
      Ersan Ilyasova will start at power forward against the Bulls on Monday and Jared Dudley will come off the bench.

      Advice: Chances are this is a matchup-based move for the Bucks. Ilyasova has not played more more than 18 minutes in any game this month and averaged only 5.2 points, 1.8 boards and 0.2 blocks in that span. He can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Patrick Patterson (sprained knee) is questionable to play on Monday against the Pelicans.

      Advice: If Patterson is forced to sit out, it would mean more minutes for the Johnson Bros* in Amir and James. Please note that these guys are not actually brothers, and that is just a nickname. Tyler Hansbrough could also see a small boost in minutes if Patterson is sidelined, but he's not worth fantasy consideration. Rotoworld.com

    • Evan Turner hands out season-high 12 assists
      Evan Turner finished Sunday's OT defeat with 12 points on 5-of-19 shooting, six rebounds and a season-high 12 assists.

      Advice: He added two steals while turning the ball over four times in 36 minutes of action. Fantasy owners should view this line skeptically for numerous reasons -- he did this against the Lakers' lackluster defense, Isaiah Thomas was ejected during his Celts' debut off the bench, and Turner is now a combined 23-of-90 from the field over his past nine games (25.6 percent).

      Wesley Johnson scored 22 points in Sunday's overtime win vs. the visiting Celtics, making 9-of-11 field goals with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists and two steals.

      Advice: Johnson's 33 minutes were the most of any Lakers player during tonight's overtime victory. Lakers coach Byron Scott has been maddeningly inconsistent with his rotations this season, and Johnson is only worth a stash in deeper leagues in case he lands a steady 30-minute role over the final eight weeks of the regular season. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeremy Lin scores 25 points in Lakers' OT win
      The Lakers stole an overtime win vs. the Celtics on Sunday behind Jeremy Lin, who scored 25 points and handed out six assists in just 30 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: Lin didn't play during the first quarter and seemed headed for another lousy night, but he caught fire as the game went on and was the difference-maker in L.A.'s comeback victory. The Lakers have won two of their past 18 games and they're headed nowhere this season, which is another reason to distrust Lin's ROS value, but he's at least worth stashing on your bench in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 9:56 pm
    • Brandon Bass shoots 7-of-11 in 40 minutes
      Brandon Bass pitched in 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting during Sunday's OT loss to the Lakers, playing 40 minutes in the absence of both Jared Sullinger (foot) and Kelly Olynyk (ankle).

      Advice: He added five rebounds, one assist and two blocks with only one turnover. Olynyk is day-to-day but Sullinger is done for the season with a metatarsal stress fracture, giving Bass a path to sustained low-end value. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect much more than points, rebounds and nice FG and FT percentages from Bass, but he's worth scooping off the waiver wire in leagues with 12 or more teams. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 9:49 pm
    • Avery Bradley's buzzer-beating 3pt not enough
      Avery Bradley made a buzzer-beating 3-pointer to send Sunday's game vs. the Lakers into overtime, finishing the Celtics' loss with 20 points, five rebounds, three assists and three steals.

      Advice: He shot 8-of-20 overall and missed all three of his free throw attempts, but he didn't turn the ball over all game and his clutch 3-pointer is worth watching via the link below. Bradley has been a top-100 value over the past month but his role is bound to change with Isaiah Thomas entering the backcourt rotation, so fantasy owners shouldn't take Bradley's current projections as a given.

      Advice: Matthews is shooting 45.4 percent overall this season, which is impressive considering far more than half of his attempts come from downtown. He's averaging 16.3 points with career-highs in triples (3.0) and rebounds (3.6), and remains a steady top-60 option despite occasional duds like Sunday. Rotoworld.com

      Updating a previous report, Jonas Jerebko (illness) will be available to play against the Lakers on Sunday.

      Advice: Head coach Brad Stevens hinter earlier that Jerebko might not play even if he dresses, so owners should be aware of that before plugging him into lineups. There is plenty of opportunity in the Boston frontcourt now that Jared Sullinger (foot) is done for the season, so owners in deep leagues will want to monitor Jerebko closely. Rotoworld.com

      Greg Monroe double-doubled during Sunday's win over the Wizards, putting up 15 points (6-of-16 from the field, 3-of-6 from the stripe), with 15 rebounds, three steals, two assists and two turnovers over 37 minutes of action.

      Advice: While the efficiency was an issue tonight, that's not a regular occurrence for Monroe. He's averaging 16.1 points, 10.3 rebounds and 1.7 steals on 51.7 percent shooting through the month of February, and he'll look to have a strong second-half to the season as Detroit fights for the final playoff spot in the East.

    • Spencer Dinwiddie benched w/ R-Jax starting
      Spencer Dinwiddie came off the bench with Reggie Jackson starting on Sunday, going scoreless with one rebound, seven assists and two turnovers in 18 minutes.

      Advice: Dinwiddie missed all six of his shot attempts and he's not a viable standard-league option, but a 20-minute role may be enough for value in deeper formats. He'd be an interesting pickup if Jackson got hurt, as Dinwiddie has per-36-minute averages of 10.1 points, 0.8 threes, 3.3 boards, 7.7 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.6 blocks. Rotoworld.com

    • Andrea Bargnani logs season-high 28 minutes
      Andrea Bargnani logged a season-high 28 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Cavs, putting up 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting with five rebounds, three assists, one block and one turnover.

      Advice: Bargnani has missed his standard one-half of the regular season, so perhaps he can stay healthy for the Knicks' remaining 27 games. There's not a lot of upside here as he basically just scores inefficiently, but if you're in an extremely deep league and you're desperate for a center... well, we still wouldn't recommend adding him.

    • Marcin Gortat scores 24 pts on 12-of-18 FGs
      Marcin Gortat bullied the Pistons in the paint on Sunday, making 12-of-18 shots to finish with 24 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and one block in 31 minutes.

      Advice: The Pistons are giving up 20.6 points to opposing centers this season, the third-most of any team, so it's not a shock to see Gortat explode against them. All but one of Gortat's shots came within 10 feet of the hoop and this tied his season-high for scoring, so hopefully his momentum will carry into Tuesday's game vs. the Warriors. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 3:39 pm
    • Jose Calderon horrible in 28 mins of action
      Jose Calderon had another atrocious outing during Sunday's blowout loss to the Cavs, scoring just four points on 2-of-9 shooting to go with two rebounds, two assists, and three turnovers over 28 minutes of action.

      Advice: Calderon, a pass-first point guard, is having trouble being effective on a team with no one to pass to. The Knicks are simply awful, and as a team they are shooting an unflattering 43.5 percent from the field. Calderon's situation isn't going to get any better, and with season averages of just 9.3 points, 4.7 assists, and 1.5 three-pointers on 42.6 percent shooting from the field, he's certainly a drop-candidate in standard leagues.

    • Lou Williams (ankle) probable Monday vs. NO
      Lou Williams (ankle) is being listed as probable for Monday's game against the Pelicans.

      Advice: If Williams is able to return on Monday, he'll take away minutes from Greivis Vasquez and Terrence Ross. He'll draw a favorable matchup against the Pelicans, and with averages of 15.4 points, 1.9 three-pointers, and 1.2 steals per game, he'll be a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • SVG says Spencer Dinwiddie will play some Sun
      Pistons' head coach Stan Van Gundy said that Spencer Dinwiddie will play some minutes during Sunday's game against the Wizards.

      Advice: Dinwiddie busted out with 12 points and nine assists during his first career start against the Bulls on Friday, and SVG said he earned some minutes with that performance. However, he needed 30 minutes to compile those numbers, and he'll now be fighting for reserve minutes with John Lucas III, with Reggie Jackson now available and locked into the starting lineup. People in deep leagues can watch Dinwiddie from the wire, but he’s very unlikely to enter the standard league equation as a reserve. Rotoworld.com

    • Ersan Ilyasova (illness) available for Sunday
      Ersan Ilyasova (illness) will be available off the bench for Sunday's game against the Hawks.

      Advice: The opportunity is certainly there for Ilyasova to produce with his only competition for playing time going by the names of John Henson and Johnny O'Bryant, however his propensity to find himself on the sidelines due to various injuries really hurts his upside. He's averaging just 8.8 points and 3.5 rebounds per game this season, so it would probably be best to use a wait-and-see approach here. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonas Jerebko, Luigi Datome available Sunday
      Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome will be available for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers.

      Advice: While they'll be available to play, both Datome and Jerebko are stepping into a very crowded rotation in Boston, and they're unlikely to see major minutes during their first game with their new team. Jerebko does have a shot of getting some minutes with Jared Sullinger (foot) being ruled out for the remainder of the season, but he's very unlikely to gain any sort of relevancy in standard leagues as a bench player in Boston.

    • Ersan Ilyasova (illness) is available Sunday
      Ersan Ilyasova (illness) is available to play against the Hawks on Sunday according to head coach Jason Kidd.

      Advice: Ersan was able to practice on Saturday, but he has simply been too inconsistent to use outside of deeper leagues. With season averages of 8.8 points and 3.5 boards in just 17.5 minutes per game, so it's probably best to leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 10:56 am
    • Tony Allen (ankle, hamstring) probable Sunday
      Tony Allen (ankle, hamstring) is listed as probable for Sunday's game vs. the Blazers.

      Advice: Jeff Green and Courtney Lee has dampened Allen's value, but he still can be viewed as a steals specialist in deeper leagues. Allen is one of the tougher guys in the league, so expect him to be ready to go on Sunday night. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 9:58 am
    • Cleanthony Early benched on Sunday vs. Cavs
      Cleanthony Early will shift to the bench for Sunday's game vs. the Cavaliers with Lance Thomas set to replace him.

      Advice: In his first career start at small forward on Friday, Early scored just two points on 1-of-7 shooting so clearly the rookie still has a long way to go in his development. Early is more of a stash in deeper leagues in case he ever turns things around, while Thomas' game doesn't translate to fantasy very well. Owners in standard leagues shouldn't even concern themselves with this situation. Rotoworld.com
      Sunday, 8:34 am
    • DeMarcus Cousins scores 21 points in loss
      DeMarcus Cousins scored 21 points on 6-of-19 shooting in an embarrassing loss to the Clippers on Saturday, adding four boards, two assists, two steals, two blocks and five turnovers in 25 minutes.

      Advice: Cousins was in foul trouble pretty early in this one, but it didn't help that the game was practically over after a 42-point second quarter from the Clippers. Despite averaging 5.3 turnovers over his last four games, Cousins should be able to improve upon his efficiency once the Kings adapt to new head coach George Karl. Rotoworld.com

    • Amir Johnson doesn't score on Saturday
      Amir Johnson did not score on Saturday with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals.

      Advice: He only attempted two shots from the field and turned the ball over three times. Johnson's scoring numbers were up with three double-digit scoring games in his last four. Johnson isn't playing quite as well and owners in standard leagues can probably find someone with a higher upside like teammate and surname-mate James Johnson. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 9:43 pm
    • Lou Williams ruled out on Saturday night
      Lou Williams (ankle) will not play against the Rockets on Saturday.

      Advice: He suffered the sprain in the third quarter on Friday and played through it, so it apparently swelled up on him. With Williams out, Greivis Vasquez will soak up all of the backup point guard minutes and a few minutes at shooting guard. James Johnson is also an interesting fantasy play, especially in standard leagues. Terrence Ross will play more, but he's been awful lately. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 4:00 pm
    • Lou Williams (ankle) doubtful for Saturday
      Lou Williams (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Rockets on Saturday.

      Advice: He must have suffered the ankle sprain late on Friday after exploding for 26 points against the Hawks. With Williams out, the Raptors will give more minutes to Greivis Vasquez off the bench while James Johnson and Terrence Ross may also play more. Considering the Raptors probably can't go too small against Trevor Ariza and James Harden, Johnson might be the best play. Obviously, there's risk here. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 2:42 pm
    • Ersan Ilyasova practices, available Sunday
      Ersan Ilyasova (illness) practiced on Saturday and will be available to play on Sunday.

      Advice: Saying Ersan is "available to play" right now could change and we should still consider him questionable to play based on his track record to miss games this season. He hasn't played more than 24 minutes in a game since the start of December and the 6'10 forward has just eight blocks on the season. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 12:31 pm
    • Spencer Dinwiddie to compete with John Lucas
      Spencer Dinwiddie and John Lucas will compete with each other for backup minutes behind Reggie Jackson according to head coach Stan Van Gundy.

      Advice: SVG said whoever plays will be matchup driven which makes it tough to own either player, so owners in deeper leagues will want to avoid this situation if possible. Jackson is going to see big minutes right out of the gate and should be a fantasy stud with the Pistons seeking a playoff berth, so there won't be a lot of minutes to go around for Dinwiddie and Lucas. Dinwiddie did flash some potential in Friday's game with 12 points, nine assists, three boards, three steals and one 3-pointer, but owners can simply monitor him from the waiver wire until further notice. Rotoworld.com

    • Jonas Jerebko will have a chance to impress
      Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome will have a chance to prove whether or not they will fit into Boston's system.

      Advice: "We wanted to see how those two players fit with us," Ainge said. "They’re players we’ve liked before that we watched play and develop, and we want to see how they fit in our system. We want to see how they fit with our coaches and mesh with our players. Datome is a great shooter and Jerebko is a bigger perimeter player who can do a lot of the things Kelly [Olynyk] does." While Jerebko could potentially carve out a decent role with Kelly Olynyk (ankle) and Jared Sullinger (foot) sidelined, owners in most leagues can simply use a wait-and-see approach here, as both players have a lot of work to do in order to pop up on the fantasy radar. Rotoworld.com

    • Jeremy Lin scores 18 points on Friday
      Jeremy Lin scored 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting (1-of-4 3PTs, 5-of-8 FTs) with one rebound, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: We don't trust Byron Scott or Lin as far as we can throw them these days, but this is a decent showing for a guy who has been lacking in both confidence and production lately. He's not a must-add player or even a strong add, but he's worth keeping an eye on in case he can get on track with a terribly shallow squad. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:59 am
    • Johnson a DNP-CD on Friday
      Wesley Johnson did not play on Friday due to coach's decision.

      Advice: Johnson's value gets crushed by the fact he can get benched out of nowhere like this. If he can somehow mitigate that risk, we'll let you know. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 1:56 am
    • Cousins all over the stat sheet in big win
      DeMarcus Cousins scored 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting (7-of-9 FTs) with 15 rebounds, three assists, two steals, one block and nine turnovers in the Kings' 109-101 win over the Celtics on Friday.

      Advice: Cousins also ended the life of Jae Crowder, who was a kind man that once stepped in front of a locomotive on the basketball court and paid dearly for his courage. The Kings got a win for new coach George Karl, but this was the definition of an ugly win against a bad opponent and at some point the Kings need to get Cousins' turnovers under control. Rudy Gay scored 28 points on 9-of-18 shooting (2-of-5 3PTs, 8-of-8 FTs) with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and three blocks, but he also played out of control and will need to reel things back in to keep his efficiency on track.

    • Bass double-doubles with 13 and 10
      Brandon Bass double-doubled with 13 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in Friday's loss to the Kings.

      Advice: The Kings weren't great tonight and Kelly Olynyk (ankle) is still out, but with Jared Sullinger (foot) out for a while there is some late-round upside here for Bass. Give him a look but don't expect a lot. Rotoworld.com

    • Bradley fills it up against sloppy Kings team
      Avery Bradley scored 28 points on 12-of-22 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, six assists, four steals and a block in 41 minutes on Friday against the Kings.

      Advice: Bradley has picked up the pace since Rajon Rondo left and he should be owned in all standard formats, but he might lose a little volume on his scoring with Isaiah Thomas coming into the fold. Then again, the addition of a playmaker could free him for more 3-point looks. It's worth mentioning that tonight's output came against a Kings team that turned the ball over 24 times. Rotoworld.com

    • Turner posts inefficient popcorn line
      Evan Turner hit just 3-of-14 shots in Friday's loss, finishing with seven points, five rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one 3-pointer and five turnovers in 37 minutes.

      Advice: Turner's already suspect value in standard leagues is going to take a sizable hit when Isaiah Thomas joins the team. Rotoworld.com

      Joe Ingles (back) returned to action in Friday's surprisingly easy win over the Blazers, scoring eight points on 3-of-6 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes.

      Advice: This harkens back to some of his other versatile showings before he started to slide and ultimately get injured. There wasn't a ton of upside to begin with, but if he can do this again owners might want to give him a look. Rotoworld.com

    • Rondo struggling mightily for the Mavs
      Rajon Rondo hit 6-of-9 shots for 13 points in the Mavs' 111-100 win over the Rockets on Friday, but managed just three assists to go with six turnovers in the rest of his box score.

      Advice: Rondo didn't grab a rebound and hit just 1-of-4 shots from the line, looking tentative as ever and one has to wonder how bad his confidence is shot right now. We can't think of too many better support systems and general situations he could find himself in compared to Dallas, so chances are he gets it together at some point, but he's not must-own player and in 9-cat leagues you can drop him without flinching unless you're punting turnovers.

    • Aminu sets season-highs with 17 and 12
      Al-Farouq Aminu set season-highs in scoring (17) and rebounding (12) on Friday, and also added a block and 3-pointer in 30 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: Aminu has been a top 50-60 asset over the last 15 games and that was good enough to be owned across the board before Chandler Parsons' ankle injury. Parsons will have an MRI on Saturday and it's not necessarily serious, but any time off would only boost Aminu's already rising stock. The concerns over Aminu's checkered past in fantasy leagues are fizzling with every solid night. Rotoworld.com

      Jusuf Nurkic was unleashed in 33 minutes of action on Friday against the Bucks with 11 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks.

      Advice: It's just the second time of his career in which he played more than 30 minutes. For months we've been waiting for Nurkic to get extended run and hopefully tonight is the start of him playing consistent minutes. If you held him the whole time, you should be feeling great right now. Rotoworld.com

      Jose Calderon scored 11 points with nine assists, two steals and three turnovers against the Heat on Friday.

      Advice: His line was tied for his highest dime output of 2015 and just the third double-digit scoring game since Jan. 22. Calderon has been a ghost on the stat sheet, but he should see his points, dimes, steals and treys start to creep up. He won't win you a league, but he has a decent chance to be a top-100 guy.

      Advice: Believe it or not, he hasn't been hurt for three games in a row. He is basically just putting up points on awful efficiency, so Il Mago doesn't really have any fantasy magic left. If you're in a 50-team league, give him a look. Rotoworld.com

      Cleanthony Early made his first start at small forward in his career on Friday against the Heat, playing 23 minutes for two points, one rebound, one assist and one steal on 1-of-7 from the field.

      Advice: Starting isn't his thing, apparently. In his only start at shooting guard, Early only scored six points on 2-of-9 from the field. He's made just 20 percent from the field in the last month and there are no other stats to suggest anything is coming. However, coach Derek Fisher sounds like he's going to play him. Just keep an eye on him in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

      Spencer Dinwiddie had a terrific game in his first NBA start on Friday, scoring 12 points with, three rebounds, nine assists, three steals and one 3-pointer on 5-of-9 from the field.

      Advice: He was the best point guard on the floor, which is saying something considering he went up against a former MVP tonight. Dinwiddie had a ton of buzz last season at Colorado, but an ACL tear caused him to slide into the second round. As great as tonight was, Reggie Jackson will start on Sunday and push Dinwiddie to a reserve role. Rotoworld.com

      Patrick Patterson scored seven points on 3-of-8 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 22 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Joe Ingles (back) will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game against Portland, sending Elijah Millsap back to the bench.

      Advice: With Rodney Hood also returning to action tonight, Millsap's days of relevancy in deep leagues are likely numbered. Ingles is averaging 6.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.0 three-pointer per game as a starter, so he can be viewed as a low-budget plug-and-play option in daily leagues.

    • Jonas Jerebko could get minutes for Boston
      Jonas Jerebko is expected to get minutes for the Celtics, but is not expected to play on Friday night against the Kings.

      Advice: The Celtics are paper thin up front with Jared Sullinger (leg) out indefinitely and Kelly Olynyk (ankle) day-to-day. Jerebko isn't a strong rebounder and a whopping 68.2 percent of his shots come without a dribble, so it's hard to imagine him behind highly involved in the offense.

He hasn't done much so far this season, but in fairness the minutes haven't been there. He'll have plenty of opportunity to prove his worth tonight with John Lucas as his only backup, and he could prove to be worth the risk for those looking for a punt play in daily leagues.

    • Al-Farouq Aminu set for a dip
      Al-Farouq Aminu played 17 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday, scoring six points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: His minutes are going to head south even more once Amare Stoudemire is ready to go. The Mavericks were using him at power forward quite a bit because they really had such lack of depth at the four and five. If you have him in a deep league, you probably can add someone else who gained value today. Rotoworld.com

    • Rajon Rondo looks bad in a loss
      Rajon Rondo's time off from a facial injury didn't help on Thursday against the Thunder, making 2-of-9 from the field for five points with two rebounds, six assists and two turnovers in 29 minutes.

      Advice: It's hard to say he looked rusty here because this is a typical Rondo line these days. It's abundantly clear Rondo won't match his fantasy output from his Boston days and he's surprisingly not even a must-own player considering how many players picked up value today. For what it's worth, he hasn't even been in the top 200 for standard leagues on per-game value since he arrived in Dallas. Rotoworld.com

      Brandon Bass is expected to stay put with the Celtics unless he pushes for a buyout.

      Advice: He's likely going to see major minutes with Kelly Olynyk (ankle) and Jared Sullinger (leg) out for Friday. Bass doesn't have a huge ceiling, but he should get enough playing time to accrue enough points and boards for most fantasy owners. There are still a lot of better adds from today, so he's not a must-add player or anything. Rotoworld.com

He has a very high usage rate of 27.8 on the season, but he's only made 36.4 percent from the field and we all know about his "defense" recently. The Knicks are going to need all the help they can get, but fantasy owners can leave Bargnani on the wire due to his ineffective play and injury risk. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: "Especially when Kobe was out there, [Jeremy] needed to drop dimes," Young said. This is the least surprising quote of the week. Lin has a somewhat high 20.8 usage rate while he's on the court with Young this season, so Young would probably rather see it fall to like 2.08. Lin hasn't played well at all and isn't worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
