    • Jamal Crawford, Matt Barnes out vs. POR
      Jamal Crawford (calf) and Matt Barnes (hamstring) will not play against the Blazers on Wednesday.

      Advice: Crawford suffered a calf injury on Monday and could not return. It was just a leg contusion, which continues to occur an inordinate amount of times this season. J.J. Redick is going to have to play a lot along with Austin Rivers stepping up. Jordan Hamilton may also play more. Rotoworld.com

    • Kemba Walker (knee) could return in one week
      Hornets coach Kemba Walker (knee) could return to action in one week, according to coach Steve Clifford.

      Advice: Walker was originally aiming to return by Mar. 16 and this would put him ahead of schedule, conceivably playing vs. Sacramento on Mar. 11. He needs to be picked up wherever he's available, as he should immediately displace the red-hot Mo Williams in Charlotte's starting lineup. Walker has been cleared for basketball activities without restrictions and we'll pass along updates as he gets back to practicing this week. Rotoworld.com

    • Paul George (leg) still without a timetable
      Paul George (leg) has gone through 3-4 full practices and remains without a timetable to return.

      Advice: "I think he’s done three or four practices now; he’s not at full-strength yet so he’s still got some hurdles to get past before he’s able to get out on to the court and play in games," coach Frank Vogel said. "We’re hopeful that that happens this year. We’ll see how the next few weeks progress."Back in February, he was hoping to go through a practice on Mar. 1, so he's slightly ahead of schedule. It sounds like he won't return until late March and the Pacers are likely going to ease him back in before the playoffs. He's not a must-stash player, but give him a look. Rotoworld.com

    • Evan Fournier, Luke Ridnour out Wednesday
      Evan Fournier (hip) and Luke Ridnour (hamstring) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday.

      Advice: Fournier will miss his third game in a row and he is dealing with a day-to-day issue. Aaron Gordon is back and he should get some minutes for the Magic. Fournier is not worth owning in most leagues while Gordon is not worth owning either. Rotoworld.com

    • Luke Ridnour (hamstring) out Wed. vs. Suns
      Luke Ridnour (hamstring) will not play vs. the Suns on Wednesday.

      Advice: His absence shifts a few more minutes to Elfrid Payton, Willie Green and Ben Gordon, though there are no big winners here since Ridnour is playing just 10.6 minutes over his past five games. He's also shooting 28.6 percent from the field during that span and his absence shouldn't hurt any fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com

    • Devyn Marble (left eye) out 4-6 weeks
      Devyn Marble (eye) will miss the next 4-6 weeks due to a detached retina in his left eye.

      Advice: He could miss the rest of the season. Marble surpassed most expectations as far as playing time goes, averaging 2.3 points, 1.9 boards, 1.1 assists and 0.6 steals in 13.0 minutes per game in 16 outings. He can be cut in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Kemba Walker (knee) cleared for activity
      Kemba Walker (knee) has been cleared for basketball activities without restrictions.

      Advice: He was re-evaluated today and it must have went very well. Walker was hoping to return on Mar. 16 and that target date seems well within his grasp. He didn't have a severe surgery and Walker was playing through it before, so he should be able to get it going once he's able to play. Mo Williams has been fantastic, but his playing time will be cut. Walker should be stashed in all leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Ray Allen won't play in 2014-15 season
      Ray Allen will not play in the 2014-15 season.

      Advice: "Over the past several months, I have taken a lot of time to deliberate what is best for me," Allen said. "I’ve ultimately decided that I will not play this NBA season. I’m going to take the remainder of this season, as well as the upcoming off-season, to reassess my situation, spend time with my family and determine if I will play in the 2015-16 season." Allen is a machine, so we certainly shouldn't rule out the possibility of him playing next year. Rotoworld.com

    • SVG says Reggie Jackson is off his game
      Coach Stan Van Gundy said Reggie Jackson is "off his game" right now.

      Advice: "He's pressing too hard, trying to do too much, sort of thinking too much," Van Gundy said. "He's got to relax and play according to what the defense does." Jackson has really struggled scoring the ball, making just 33.3 percent from the field with the Pistons. Specifically, he's been awful outside of the paint, making just 18.5 percent of those shots with the Pistons. While he was benched on Saturday, Jackson is still dominating the ball and should get it going very soon. Rotoworld.com

    • Doug McDermott will get another chance
      Coach Tom Thibodeau said Doug McDermott will get another chance in the rotation.

      Advice: Thibs praised McDermott's defense, following his scoreless game against the Wizards on Tuesday. McDermott missed all five shots from the field and only had one board. He should have minutes in the teens until Taj Gibson gets back, but may fall out of the rotation after that. Rotoworld.com

    • Jason Richardson will play vs. Thunder Wed.
      Jason Richardson will play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.

      Advice: He was rested against the Raptors on Monday, but the 76ers are obviously going to be cautious with him moving forward given his injury history. Owners in deeper leagues who could use some help in scoring and 3-pointers should give him a look. Rotoworld.com

    • James Harden will return vs. Grizzlies Wed.
      James Harden will return from his one-game suspension vs. the Grizzlies on Wednesday, shifting Corey Brewer back to the bench.

      Advice: The MVP candidate is boasting averages of 27.1 points, 6.9 assists, 5.8 boards, 1.9 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.6 3-pointers per game this season, so plugging him back into active lineups will be the easiest thing his owners can possibly do today. On the other hand, Brewer will return to his normal role off the bench and can be dropped outside of deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Alexey Shved draws praise from coach Fisher
      Head coach Derek Fisher praised Alexey Shved for his impressive play in recent games.

      Advice: "Alexey is continuing to find an identity and role within our team and showing us some ability to do some things in terms of handling the ball and making passes and plays,’’ Fisher said. "We have to continue to commit ourselves to helping him feel more and more comfortable every day. We have to rely on him even more because we’re sometimes inconsistent at the guard spots." Shved has averaged 13.0 points, 4.8 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steal and 0.8 3-pointers in just 23 minutes per game over his last four, and due to the inconsistent play of Tim Hardaway Jr. and Langston Galloway, it looks like he is going to have a decent role moving forward. His shooting percentages and high turnover rate will make him a liability in standard leagues, but he is worth a flier in deeper leagues to see if he can continue to improve. Rotoworld.com

    • Tyler Johnson (ankle) will play vs. Lakers
      Tyler Johnson (ankle) will play vs. the Lakers on Wednesday.

      Advice: He wasn't able to practice on Tuesday, but the Heat were probably just erring on the side of caution. Johnson is coming off a career-high 26-point performance vs. the Suns on Monday, but he will have to string together a few more good game before popping up on the radar in standard leagues.

    • Tony Allen (suspension) will play vs. Rockets
      Tony Allen will return from his one-game suspension vs. the Rockets on Wednesday.

      Advice: He was suspended for Tuesday's game vs. the Jazz due to an altercation between him and Nick Calathes during practice, but he should resume his normal role off the bench against the Rockets. Allen has season averages of just 8.1 points, 4.0 boards, 1.4 assists and 1.9 steals, so he is only worth a look in deeper leagues for the time being. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Martin (illness) will play vs. Nuggets
      Kevin Martin (illness) will play vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

      Advice: Martin is reportedly feeling a lot better after sitting out vs. the Clippers on Monday, and his owners can safely plug him back into all lineups. Gary Neal, who started Monday's game against the Clippers, will shift back to the bench and can be dropped across the board. Rotoworld.com

    • Pelicans sign Elliot Williams to 10-day deal
      The Pelicans have signed G Elliot Williams to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

      Advice: He participated in the team's shootaround and is expected to be available for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons. However, Williams likely won't be in the rotation right out of the gate, so owners in deeper leagues can simply monitor him from the waiver wire for now. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 8:22 am
    • Goran Dragic (back) will play on Wednesday
      Goran Dragic (back) will play on Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

      Advice: He was unable to practice on Tuesday and is said to be dealing with back spasms and a sore shoulder, but it's great to see that it won't force him to miss any action. Dragic is coming off a 21-point performance vs. the Suns on Monday, so his owners can confidently deploy him in all active lineups. Rotoworld.com
      Today, 7:56 am
    • Luke Ridnour (hamstring) questionable Wed.
      Luke Ridnour (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Suns on Wednesday.

      Advice: Ridnour is averaging just 13.7 minutes per game in a backup role behind rookie Elfrid Payton, so his absence wouldn't have many fantasy implications. It's safe to leave Ridnour on the wire in all but the deepest of leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Evan Fournier (hip) questionable Wednesday
      Evan Fournier (hip) was limited at practice on Tuesday, and he remains questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns.

      Advice: Fournier has missed the last two games and recently said that his hip is still giving him problems, so he is probably closer to doubtful for Wednesday. Fournier has averages of 11.9 points and 1.4 3-pointers this season, so his value is currently limited to deeper leagues at the moment. If Fournier remains sidelined, veteran Willie Green will continue to see an uptick in minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com

    • Monta Ellis expected to opt out this summer
      Monta Ellis will reportedly opt out of his contract this summer in order to pursue a multi-year deal in free agency.

      Advice: He is boasting averages of 19.4 points, 4.4 assists, 2.4 boards, 1.9 steals and 1.2 3-pointers per game this season and is one of the most durable players in the league, so Ellis will surely generate a ton of interest around the NBA this summer. The Mavericks will surely do everything they can to keep Ellis in Dallas, as he has arguably surpassed Dirk Nowitzki as the team's best player this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Hawks sign G/F Jarell Eddie to 10-day deal
      According to Real GM, the Hawks have signed G/F Jarell Eddie to a 10-day contract on Thursday.

      Advice: Eddie is a known as a sharpshooter and actually won the 3-point contest in the D-League this season. That being said, he likely isn't going to be in the rotation in Atlanta, meaning owners in deeper leagues can monitor him from the waiver wire for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Henderson scores 21 points with five assists
      Gerald Henderson scored 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, five assists and three steals on Tuesday.

      Advice: Henderson had slid a little bit last week and moved off of must-own status, but he has come roaring back this past week with early round value in his last four games. During that time he has averaged 15.5 points, 1.5 treys, 4.0 boards, 2.8 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.5 blocks and shot the ball very well. We can't guarantee this will continue and Kemba Walker's eventual return will hurt, but for now he should be owned in standard formats. Rotoworld.com

    • Jimmy Butler (elbow) given 3-6 week timetable
      The Bulls have given Jimmy Butler (elbow) a 3-6 week timetable for his return, but he's hopeful that he can play before the end of the regular season.

      Advice: Initial reports suggested a 3-4 week timetable so this is somewhat discouraging, though Butler said on Tuesday that the pain in his elbow is already subsiding. "I'm doing all right," he said. "I'm just trying my best to hurry back, being careful, of course ... My ligament just has to heal, and I've got to be able to move my left arm like I move my right before I can get out there and do anything." With no firm return date and the fantasy playoffs looming, Butler is only worth stashing if you're confident your team can succeed without his production until at least late March. Rotoworld.com

    • Hornets coach criticizes rookie P.J. Hairston
      Hornets coach Steve Clifford said that rookie P.J. Hairston "hasn't developed any way to play to make his teammates better."

      Advice: Charlotte is jockeying for a playoff spot and Clifford's rotation has no room for player development, so we're unlikely to see Hairston or fellow rookie Noah Vonleh on the court in the season's final weeks. Rotoworld.com

    • Khris Middleton fills up boxscore vs. Nuggets
      Khris Middleton shot just 6-of-20 from the field on Tuesday, but still finished with 20 points, three 3-pointers, seven boards, six assists, two steals and one block.

      Advice: He made all five of his free throws and didn't turn the ball over, putting him a few made shots away from a pure nine-cat gem. Middleton has been one of the nicest surprises this season and his scoring is even more essential with Brandon Knight in Phoenix, so he's poised for steady top-50 value down the stretch.

    • Giannis Antetokounmpo posts 19 & 11 vs. DEN
      The Bucks fell in Denver on Tuesday despite a strong game from Giannis Antetokounmpo, who posted 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting, 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks.

      Advice: Giannis turned the ball over five times but he also drained a 3-pointer and was able to log 35 minutes despite persistent foul trouble. He and Khris Middleton have proven to be a formidable wing duo for the Bucks, and both guys are returning top-40 value over the past 10 games. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Dudley (knee) struggles in return Tues
      Jared Dudley (knee) finished Tuesday's loss in Denver with two points, five boards and one assist in 20 minutes off the bench.

      Advice: He shot just 1-of-6 from the field and may not be 100 percent healthy. Standard-league owners can leave him on the waiver wire as long as he's playing 20-25 minutes behind Giannis Antetokounmpo, Khris Middleton and Ersan Ilyasova. Rotoworld.com

    • Alexey Shved leads Knicks w/ 15 pts Tuesday
      The Knicks were destroyed by the Kings on Tuesday, 86-124, with only Alexey Shved leading the team in scoring with 15 points on 4-of-11 FGs and 7-of-9 FTs.

      Advice: Shved added seven boards, three dimes and a steal, and he was one of only three Knicks to score double-digit points, joining fellow reserves Shane Larkin (13 points) and Jason Smith (13 points). Shved's 33 minutes were also a team-high and he's now averaging 13.0 points, 0.8 threes, 4.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.0 steals over the past four games. That's enough to warrant attention in deeper formats while Jose Calderon (Achilles) is out, but most owners should take a skeptical view of Shved -- he's shooting 38.7 percent this season and this was the first time he's cracked the 30-minute barrier. Rotoworld.com

    • Evan Fournier still dealing with a hip issue
      Evan Fournier is hoping that his sore right hip will continue to get better, but he remains questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns.

      Advice: "You don't want to mess too much with a muscle," Fournier said. "It's very important to take care of your body and make sure you feel good, because it can get worse." Fournier has been sidelined for the past two games, and the Magic have no reason to rush him back before he is 100 percent. If Fournier remains on the shelf for Wednesday's game, veteran Willie Green will continue to be the primary beneficiary off the bench. That being said, owners in standard leagues can ignore both Fournier and Green for now. Rotoworld.com

    • NO to give Elliot Williams a 10-day contract
      The Pelicans are expected to sign G Elliot Williams to a 10-day contract.

      Advice: Williams played five games for the Jazz earlier in the season on a 10-day deal, and put in averages of 3.6 points and 1.0 three-pointer per game on 46.2 percent shooting from the field. He'll help add some depth to New Orleans’ backcourt, but he's well off the radar in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com

    • Tyler Johnson (ankle) expected to play Wed.
      Tyler Johnson (ankle) did not participate during Tuesday's practice, but he is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

      Advice: Johnson is experiencing some soreness in his left ankle after a hard fall during Monday's physical game against the Suns, but the injury is not expected to cause Johnson to miss any action. "It's been better," Johnson said of his ankle. "I walked out [Monday] and it was really painful. I came out and got some treatment. It's only getting better." Johnson is coming off a career-high 26 point outing, but we'd like to see a similar performance before recommending him as an add in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Goran Dragic dealing with right shoulder pain
      Goran Dragic said on Tuesday that he is still experiencing pain in his right shoulder stemming from a hard collision he took during Monday's game against Phoenix.

      Advice: Dragic did not participate during Tuesday's practice and we'll be considering him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers. If he's unable to go, Mario Chalmers would slide back into the starting lineup, with Shabazz Napier seeing extended minutes off the bench. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com

    • P.J. Hairston benched due to absence
      P.J. Hairston was inactive during Sunday's game due to a missed weight-training session.

      Advice: According to two sources, Hairston missed a weight-training obligation and was subsequently put on the inactive list for Sunday's game. Hairston was also made inactive for a game in December after an unexcused absence from practice, so this isn't his first transgression of his rookie season. The rookie has only suited up for one of the Hornets' last 10 games, so he can be left on the wire in all but the deepest fantasy leagues at this point. Rotoworld.com

    • Concentrated Revenge: Dragic burns Suns
      Goran Dragic fought through a back injury and only needed nine shots from the field and less than 15 minutes to score 21 points against the Suns during a 115-98 win on Monday, adding four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

      Advice: Dragic said he would have sat out against any other team, so chalk this one up to the old revenge game narrative. He was fouled hard and needed to go to the locker room tonight, so he might not be healthy for Wednesday against the Lakers. As for his performance tonight, he became just the second player in the past decade to score 21 points in less than 15 minutes (Kyle Lowry). He should have plenty of big lines on the way, if his back allows him to play. Rotoworld.com

    • Tyler Johnson scores career-high 26 points
      Tyler Johnson scored a career-high 26 points against the Suns on Monday with one rebound, one assist, four steals and three 3-pointers on 10-of-13 from the field in 26 minutes.

      Advice: It was also more points than he scored in any of his college games at Fresno State. Needless to say, nobody saw this coming with three consecutive DNP-CDs coming into this game. There were 102 players who logged minutes tonight and only one of them, DeMar DeRozan, had more points than Johnson tonight. Plus Johnson had a 90.8 true shooting percentage. Stats aside, Goran Dragic only played 15 minutes, which really helped Johnson. Unless you're in a really deep league, we're going to have to see Johnson score in double digits with Dragic out there for more than 30 minutes. Rotoworld.com

    • Jamal Crawford (calf) out for game on Monday
      Jamal Crawford (calf) will not return on Monday.

      Advice: He has a calf contusion, which means it's not a muscle strain. That's important to note because Crawford has a history of calf injuries. With Crawford out, Austin Rivers is really going to have to step up. He's only worth a look in deep leagues. Crawford finished with nine points, two boards and one 3-pointer. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: The Wolves will start Gorgui Dieng and Gary Neal. Coach Flip Saunders said that the flus is going around and their assistant coach won't be at the arena. Martin still isn't a must-start player now that he has one game on the sidelines this week. Neal is also a risky play. We should get a lot of Andrew Wiggins. Rotoworld.com

      Goran Dragic (back) is going to start against the Suns on Monday.

      Advice: If you're into revenge games, this might be your Super Bowl. Dragic should get minutes in the mid 30s tonight and is a must-start in standard leagues. He and Dwyane Wade haven't played too well together, but that's to be expected for two ball-dominant guys. Start the Dragon. Rotoworld.com

    • James Harden suspended for Tuesday night
      James Harden will be suspended for Tuesday's game against the Hawks for kicking LeBron James in the groin on Sunday.

      Advice: We'll finally get to see just how valuable Harden really is. He's having one of the best seasons for stats in recent memory, so his fantasy owners should still start him with three games. With Harden out, there should be many more minutes for Corey Brewer and coach Kevin McHale may kick the tires on K.J. McDaniels. The violation is attached in the link below. Rotoworld.com

    • Goran Dragic (back) is a game-time call
      Goran Dragic is a game-time decision against the Suns on Monday.

      Advice: One would think he would at least try to play against a team with a front office he doesn't trust. Dragic has played well with the Heat, averaging 13.8 points, 3.0 boards, 5.4 dimes, 1.4 steals and 0.6 treys, so he's a must-start player if active, obviously. If he's out, we should get a lot of Shabazz Napier and Mario Chalmers running the point, but it'll be the Dwyane Wade Show, as well. Rotoworld.com

    • Jason Richardson out for Monday night
      Jason Richardson (rest) will not play on Monday against the Raptors.

      Advice: It is not a surprise at all on the second night of a back-to-back set. Richardson has actually played very well lately, scoring double figures in each of his last three. He's worth using in some leagues, but sitting out back-to-backs is a little too annoying for standard leagues. The last time J-Rich sat out, Hollis Thompson scored 22, and should get over 30 minutes tonight. Expect to see more of Jerami Grant on the wing, too. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Dudley ready to roll for Tuesday night
      Jared Dudley (knee) will play against the Nuggets on Tuesday.

      Advice: He missed Saturday due to some soreness in his knee cap and looks to be in the clear. Interestingly, every fantasy owner's favorite headache, Ersan Ilyasova, stepped up while Dudley was down, so that is the major fantasy implication here. While Dudley isn't worth owning, it'll be interesting to see what happens with Ghostface Ilya. Dudley isn't worth owning in most leagues while Ilyasova is worth a look -- add at your own risk of course. Rotoworld.com

    • James Harden listed with a shoulder injury
      James Harden is listed as probable for Tuesday against the Hawks with a shoulder injury.

      Advice: For the past three months, the Rockets listing a guy as probable has been pretty much meaningless, so Harden should be good to go. He's putting up historic numbers this season and has been the a top-two player in fantasy for almost any format this season. Rotoworld.com

    • Jimmy Butler (elbow) out approx. 3-4 weeks
      Jimmy Butler (elbow) is expected to miss three-to-four weeks with a sprain, but he will not need surgery, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

      Advice: The Bulls are officially calling it a Grade 2/3 ligament (ulnar) strain and a small bone impaction injury to the left elbow. Per beat writer KC Johnson, Butler will be evaluated on a weekly basis, and it's possible he'll return in under three weeks, but we're definitely looking at an extended absence for Jimmy Buckets. If he misses three weeks, there would be 11 regular-season games left. Without Butler, Tony Snell should move into the starting lineup and is a must-add in every format where he's available. Without Butler and Derrick Rose (knee), the Bulls are going to be slogging through the offensive end in the near future. Rotoworld.com

    • Goran Dragic (back) questionable for Monday
      Goran Dragic (back) is still being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Suns.

      Advice: Dragic really wants to play, but he's clearly hurting even though he did report some improvement. He did not participate in shootaround, an indication that The Dragon could be headed for a dreaded game-time call. If he's unable to suit up, Mario Chalmers would start and see all of the minutes he can handle with Shabazz Napier as his backup. Rotoworld.com

    • Morey: Rockets 'nowhere' without James Harden
      Rockets GM Daryl Morey said the team would be "nowhere" without James Harden.

      Advice: How's that taste, Dwight Howard? "We basically told the owner, ‘We should just give them everything. Like, literally, every possible thing that isn’t bolted down with the Rockets should be traded,’" Morey said. Harden is at the center of the MVP conversation and is arguably No. 1 on the totem pole depending on who you ask. The Harden trade was a franchise-altering move for Houston. Rotoworld.com

    • Goran Dragic (back) questionable for Monday
      According to head coach Erik Spoelstra, Goran Dragic is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Suns after he dealt with back spasms during Saturday's game vs. the Hawks.

      Advice: "He got hit in the back and that's why he was in the locker room," Spoelstra said. "He probably shouldn't have played in the second half. He just played through it. I kept on asking him if he was OK and he said he was... He gutted it out." Dragic will likely do everything in his power to be ready in time to face his former team, and we should be able to provide another update after the Heat's shootaround on Monday morning. If Dragic can't play, Mario Chalmers will be the primary beneficiary, while Shabazz Napier would likely see an uptick in minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com

    • James Harden drops 33 points in win over CLE
      James Harden kept up his torrid pace during Sunday's thrilling overtime win over the Cavs, notching 33 points (8-of-18 from the field, 15-of-18 from the line), eight rebounds, five assists, three steals, two blocks and five turnovers.

      Advice: This was Harden's NBA-leading 26th game with more than 30 points, and this performance will certainly help his case for MVP-honors. Harden also logged 42 minutes tonight, which would suggest that his ankle injury is no longer an issue. He's averaging 22.6 points, 8.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.6 three-pointers, since the All-Star break, while shooting 84.2 percent from the charity stripe on 11.4 attempts per game. Simply put, he’s a beast. Rotoworld.com

    • Jamal Crawford gets hot late, scores 16 pts
      Jamal Crawford got hot late on Sunday, scoring all 16 of his points during the second half, to go with one steal, one 3-pointer, one block and one turnover through 34 minutes of action.

      Advice: Crawford shot 6-of-18 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, making this your prototypical J-Cross outing. He's not an efficient guy on a nightly basis, but his steady contributions to points, 3-pointers, and free throw percentage makes him a worthwhile asset in most leagues. With Matt Barnes (hamstring) unlikely for Monday, Crawford will likely slide into the starting lineup, and he'll see a boost in value with the promotion. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: We'll continue to track Butler's status closely, and we're considering him questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards. Tony Snell will likely draw the start if Butler is unavailable on Tuesday, and he's worth a speculative add in deep leagues with averages of 13.6 points and 2.7 three-pointers through the month of February.

      Jimmy Butler (left elbow sprain) will not return for Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.

      Advice: Butler will finish Sunday's game with 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting from the field, with two 3-pointers, two assists, two rebounds, and one turnover. The Bulls play again on Tuesday vs. Washington, and we'll be considering him questionable for that one. Tony Snell stepped up when Butler went down, scoring 10 points in the third quarter, and he'll be worth a look in deep leagues if Butler is forced to sit out on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com

    • Kemba Walker (knee) to be reevaluated on Wed.
      Kemba Walker (knee) is expected to be reevaluated on Wednesday.

      Advice: He was expected to be out for a minimum of six weeks after undergoing surgery on his torn lateral meniscus in his left knee on Jan. 28, and while it will take him some time to regain his conditioning, he can now be stashed in most leagues with the Hornets pursuing a playoff berth. Walker got up some shots before Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls for the first time since his surgery, and he is still said to be targeting a return to the lineup on March 16. Mo Williams has been filling in admirably at PG for Charlotte, and though his value will take a hit when Walker returns, he is still worth holding onto to see how things play out. Rotoworld.com

    • Khris Middleton scores 18 points in loss Sat.
      Khris Middleton scored 18 points on 8-of-16 shooting against the Jazz on Saturday, adding six boards, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

      Advice: He is arguably Milwaukee's best weapon on offense now that Brandon Knight is no longer in town, and he has now scored in double digits in twelve straight games. In case it's not already obvious, Middleton is a must-start player and should continue to be a stud for the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com

    • Giannis Antetokounmpo quiet in loss Sat.
      Giannis Antetokounmpo had eight points on 4-of-5 shooting against the Jazz on Saturday, adding five boards, four assists, three steals and one block in 34 minutes.

      Advice: He was held scoreless and didn't even attempt a shot before halftime, but luckily for his owners he was able to muster up some confidence in the second half. Antetokounmpo has been in the midst of a major slump, shooting just 35 percent from the field over his last seven games, so hopefully the Greek Freak can continue to improve as the season progresses.

    • 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

    • Alexey Shved scores 15 points
      Alexey Shved scored 15 points off the bench against the Raptors on Saturday with two rebounds, five assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 20 minutes.

      Advice: He was actually pretty good tonight and didn't throw the ball up in the air 40 feet on a six-foot runner. Shved is getting some minutes because of the Jose Calderon (Achilles) and he's worth a look in deep leagues. He won't be this good, though. Rotoworld.com

      Goran Dragic went scoreless in the first half against the Hawks on Saturday, finishing with six points, three rebounds, six assists, two steals and three turnovers.

      Advice: It's been a bumpy ride for Dragic, but his averages still look fine. In his five games with the Heat, he averaged 13.8 points, 3.0 boards, 5.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.6 treys on 49.1 percent from the field. He should get even better and have a chance to be a third- or fourth-round guy. Rotoworld.com

    • Reggie Jackson benched late vs. Wizards
      Reggie Jackson struggled yet again on Saturday against the Wizards, making 4-of-12 from the field for nine points with three rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: It's not going well for him and he was benched tonight because Spencer Dinwiddie outplayed him big time. Interestingly, Jackson had a time of possession per game of 9.6 minutes in his first three games with Detroit, which is actually more John Wall's league-leading 8.2. However, Jackson can't make shots and he's really only had two effective halves in eight tries, making just 33.3 percent from the field with the Pistons. Still, his upside is too high to panic. Try to buy low if you can. Rotoworld.com
      Saturday, 6:29 pm
    • Jared Dudley (knee) out for Saturday
      Jared Dudley (knee) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

      Advice: X-rays were negative on his kneecap and he appears to be day-to-day. However, it's tough to gauge how much time he is going to miss because Dudley did have an issue with his kneecap last year. He can be dropped in most leagues. Ersan Ilyasova and Jerryd Bayless likely get most of Dudley's minutes. Ilyasova is worth a look in standard leagues and we'll let you know how he does tonight. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: Butler did not hit a three but who cares when he's putting up numbers like these. He has returned top 6-12 value (9/8 cat) on a per-game basis this season and with Derrick Rose out of the picture for the most part he could theoretically improve on that. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He said he is dealing with some problems with his kneecap, which bothered him last season. Dudley hasn't played well lately and has clearly been passed by Khris Middleton. If he's out, more minutes will go to Ersan Ilyasova and Jerryd Bayless. Rotoworld.com

    • Henderson holds on with solid night
      Gerald Henderson scored 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting (including two threes) with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block on Friday.

      Advice: Henderson has been a borderline value in 12-team standard leagues for the last week or so and one has to wonder how his numbers will hold up with Mo Williams around. If you want to ride him while he's moderately productive go for it, but there's not enough upside to call him a must-own player. Rotoworld.com

    • Reggie Jackson has an abysmal game
      Reggie Jackson made 5-of-24 from the field against the Knicks on Friday for 16 points with five rebounds, five assists and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: This kind of line against the Knicks is inexcusable. Jackson hasn't quite hit his stride with his new team and is making just 33.3 percent from the field in his last three. Jackson is still a huge part of the offense and he's a good bet for several 20-7-7 kind of lines this season. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He is putting up some nice numbers right now with a 16-point, four-trey game on Wednesday. Richardson is going to have to rest on occasion, but he should have a chance to put up top-100 value the nights he plays because of his output from beyond the arc. Rotoworld.com

      Updating a previous report, James Harden (ankle) will be in the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

      Advice: Head coach Kevin McHale said that he has no plan to limit Harden's minutes, but he will keep an eye on his ankle and make adjustments if he’s in any noticeable pain. Harden has been an absolute beast this season, leading the league in scoring with 27.2 points per game while chipping in 5.8 rebounds, 6.9 assists, 1.9 steals, and 2.7 three-pointers. Get him active for tonight's favorable matchup against the Nets. Rotoworld.com

    • James Harden (ankle) likely to play Friday
      Rockets' head coach Kevin McHale believes that James Harden (ankle) will suit up for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

      Advice: Harden is already a must-start guy every time he's in uniform, and with a very favorable matchup against the Nets, he's someone to strongly consider in daily leagues. He will be without a minutes restriction, and had a 30-point outing with a full line during his last matchup against Brooklyn, so make sure you have him on your active roster. Rotoworld.com

      James Harden (ankle) was able to go through shootaround, but he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

      Advice: We'll continue to monitor this situation closely, but if he's unable to go, Corey Brewer would likely slide into the starting lineup with Pablo Prigioni and K.J. McDaniels having the opportunity for extended minutes. As for the offense, Trevor Ariza, Josh Smith, Terrence Jones, and Donatas Motiejunas would all be asked to step up, and each of those guys would serve as quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues.

      Advice: "Ray Allen is not going to sign with the Cavs," said Windhort. "I don't think he's going to play. If he decides he wants to, it won't be with the Cavs." Wherever Allen decides to play this season, or if he decides to play this season, should be of no concern to owners in standard leagues, as he's not going to be anything more than an end-of-the-bench kind of guy on a contending roster. The Hawks, Wizards, Warriors, and Spurs remain in the conversation for Allen’s services. Rotoworld.com

      Paul George (leg) went through a full practice on Thursday, but he remains without an official timetable to return.

      Advice: This was George's first full practice since sustaining his gruesome leg injury less than seven months ago, and he was seen running with the starters. Head coach Frank Vogel said, "[George has] got a long way to go before he gets cleared to play," but remained hopeful that he'd be able to return at some point this season. George offers plenty of upside and again stated his desire to return by mid-March following Thursday’s practice. If your team is in a position where you can afford to hold on to the dead roster space while he gets himself into game shape, George is certainly worth the risk. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: "It’s pretty sore right now, but I’ll get some rest tonight and ice it," Harden said. "Hopefully be ready to go Friday." He limped out of the arena and he is likely going to be on the injury report for Friday's game against the Nets. Meanwhile, Harden finally stuck it to the Clippers.

      Jimmy Butler didn't step up against the Hornets during a 98-86 loss on Wednesday with 14 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and three turnovers.

      Advice: He should have more on his plate with Derrick Rose (knee) out for the foreseeable future. Butler has really seen a huge boost in the past month even with Rose on the floor, so it should be interesting to see how he does now that he'll be running the offense a lot more.

Richardson is playing OK so far this year, averaging 7.0 points, 6.0 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 treys in his previous two games.

      Advice: J-Rich sat out Monday's game as a precaution in the second half of a back-to-back set, something which may be a trend through the final weeks of the season. Richardson will have his hands full chasing Kevin Martin around the court tonight, and he's only worth a glance from deep-league owners seeking 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com

He will likely have to rest throughout the season, so it's tough to add him in even deep leagues.

Taj Gibson inadvertently revealed Butler is dealing with the concern over the weekend, and Butler said he "can't remember" if there was a more serious injury than just a sprain.

      Gerald Henderson played through a sore left wrist on Sunday vs. the Mavericks, finishing with only four points, three boards, two assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

      Advice: This is not the same wrist that Henderson had surgery on in May and it doesn't appear that he is danger of missing any action. He doesn't contribute much beyond the occasional scoring outburst and owners in standard leagues can almost certainly do better, especially now that Mo Williams has joined the Hornets' backcourt rotation.

      Monta Ellis scored 15 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Mavericks to an easy win over the Hornets on Sunday.

      Advice: Ellis had averaged just 8.7 points over his last three games, so his owners have to be thrilled to see him scoring with ease again. He also added three rebounds, four assists and one steal on the night, and it's becoming more obvious that Ellis probably should have been the one to represent Dallas at the All-Star game over Dirk Nowitzki. Yeah, Ellis has been that good. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: J-Rich was made 1-of-5 shots from downtown, going 3-of-9 overall, and it looks like he'll remain a Sixers' starter indefinitely. Philly plays a back-to-back game on Monday and there are no guarantees that J-Rich will play, let alone log 20+ minutes, so even deep-league owners should view him warily. Rotoworld.com

      Advice: He was coming off a nice 16-point effort as a starter on Friday and plenty of owners got burned tonight, as Fournier pulled the short straw in interim coach James Borrego's rotations.

      Reggie Jackson scored 17 points with five rebounds and five assists in his Pistons' debut on Sunday, making 7-of-18 shots with one 3-pointer in 30 minutes of action.

      Advice: He immediately started and is a must-own player now that he's locked in as a starter for Detroit. He hadn't taken more than 12 shots in a game since Dec. 31 and his stats will inevitably spike across the board, so get in your trade offers while you still can. Tonight's line could have been even better but Jackson was under the weather, even becoming ill on the sidelines during the game. R-Jax's starting job is bad news for reserve G Spencer Dinwiddie, who isn't worth holding in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Gerald Henderson (wrist) will play Sunday
      Gerald Henderson is dealing with a sore wrist but he is planning to play against the Mavericks on Sunday.

      Advice: The Hornets would be forced to give more minutes to mercurial guard Lance Stephenson if Henderson ever has to miss any action, but it looks like they dodged a bullet here. Barring a late setback, Henderson should be ready to roll against the Mavericks. Rotoworld.com

    • Khris Middleton & Giannis score 19 pts each
      The Bucks fell at home on Sunday, 86-97, despite getting 19 points from both Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton.

      Advice: Middleton made 6-of-12 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with one 3-pointer, four boards and five assists, and he's emerged as an elite fantasy option over the past month. In his last dozen games he's averaging a stellar 16.2 points (54.2 percent FGs, 91.3 percent FTs), 1.6 threes, 5.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.1 steals. He does a little bit of everything, so the arrival of Michael Carter-Williams shouldn't throw him off, and his lucky owners can sit back and enjoy the production. Rotoworld.com

    • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 19 pts in loss
      Giannis Antetokounmpo had 19 points, four boards, one steal and two blocks on Sunday, making 7-of-15 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs in a tough home loss.

      Advice: He keeps getting better and has vaulted into top-40 value with no signs of slowing down. His scoring, rebounds and defensive numbers jump out at fantasy owners, but his percentages are just as important -- after a rocky rookie campaign he's now shooting a respectable 50.0 percent from the field and 73.8 percent from the FT line.

    • 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

    • Alexey Shved will be available on Sunday
      Alexey Shved practiced with the Knicks on Saturday and will be available to play against the Cavaliers on Sunday.

      Advice: There's no telling whether or not he will be in the rotation, but this is the Knicks we are talking about, so Shved couldn't be in a more ideal situation. Owners in deeper leagues can simply put him on their radar for now, and we will be sure to track his progress very closely in the coming days. Rotoworld.com

    • Reggie Jackson will start Sunday vs. Wizards
      Reggie Jackson will be in the starting lineup against the Wizards on Sunday.

      Advice: Jackson is looking at a huge bump in his fantasy value since his move to Detroit, and he should be owned in all leagues moving forward. In 13 starts for the Thunder this season, Jackson averaged 20.2 points, 7.8 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 3-pointers per game, so his owners should be feeling pretty good right about now. Spencer Dinwiddie will shift to the bench on Sunday, and can now be dropped in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jason Richardson will start again on Sunday
      Jason Richardson will make his second consecutive start against the Magic on Sunday.

      Advice: He scored seven points with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the Pacers on Friday, so J-Rich proved that he still has some gas left in the tank. He's obviously a huge injury risk at this point in his career, but owners in deeper leagues can certainly do worse while he is active. Rotoworld.com

    • Jamal Crawford drops 23 points in win on Sat.
      Jamal Crawford scored 23 points with six assists, one board, one steal and one 3-pointer in just 21 minutes in an easy win over the Kings on Saturday.

      Advice: Crawford has now scored 20 or more points in his last six games, making it hard to fathom why his name surfaced so much during the recent NBA trade deadline. Crawford is arguably the deadliest sixth man in the NBA, and the Clippers are going to rely on him to produce even more with Blake Griffin (elbow) still on the sidelines. Rotoworld.com
