  • Chris McCullough has a 14-minute limit
    Chris McCullough said that he's restricted to no more than 14 minutes per game for the time being.

    Advice: He spent over a year rehabbing his surgically-repaired knee, so it's not a surprise that the Nets are easing him into the rotation. The 21-year-old forward is one of the few building blocks that Brooklyn has, but the Nets would have to make a trade or two at the deadline to open up some more minutes. For now, McCullough is just a stash in dynasty leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 am
  • John Henson will be re-evaluated after ASB
    John Henson (back) will be re-evaluated after the All-Star break.

    Advice: The Bucks took the cautious approach with Henson and held him out for seven straight games. He will hopefully be good to go after the break, and he isn't the worst stash if you need blocks in case the Bucks decide to move Greg Monroe at the deadline. He owns season averages of 6.8 points, 3.9 boards, 1.0 assist and 2.0 blocks in 16.7 minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:19 am

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

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

  • Heat looking to trade Jarnell Stokes?
    The Heat are reportedly willing to trade Jarnell Stokes for a second round pick.

    Advice: Stokes has only made a handful of brief appearances for Miami and he has spent the majority of his time in the D-League, so the Heat are simply looking to open up a roster spot. Unless Stokes is traded to an ideal situation, he would likely be looking at a very limited role. He's not worth stashing at this point. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:53 am
  • Jason Kidd praises Jerryd Bayless
    Bucks coach Jason Kidd praised Jerryd Bayless for his improved 3-point shot.

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

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

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

    Advice: With Bryce Dejean-Jones out tonight, there were more minutes up for grabs. The Pelicans have some extra run to go around, so chances are Douglas won't play much going forward. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:21 pm
  • Alonzo Gee starting at SG
    Alonzo Gee is starting at shooting guard on Thursday against the Thunder.

    Advice: It was expected to be Toney Douglas, but the Pelicans will go bigger. Gee is not an option tonight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:04 pm
  • Gary Neal (right leg) ruled out for Thursday
    Gary Neal (right leg) has been ruled out for Thursday's game vs. the Bucks.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Gerald Henderson in double-digits again Wed
    Gerald Henderson had 13 points (3-of-10 FGs, 7-of-10 FTs), four rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes on Wednesday, marking his sixth straight game with double-digit points.

    Advice: Henderson is healthy and productive, with an expiring $6 million contract, so the veteran may draw some trade interest as the deadline approaches. He doesn't typically contribute much beyond scoring and solid FT percentages, so it's hard to envision Henderson as a fantasy asset no matter where he finishes the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:55 pm
  • Brandon Jennings starts, scores 16 points
    Brandon Jennings made his first start of the season on Wednesday and had 16 points, four 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 29 minutes of action.

    Advice: Reggie Jackson was out due to an illness and B-Jennings will return to a bench role after the All-Star break, assuming he's still in Detroit. He'll need a tailor-made situation to be worth owning in standard leagues, even if he is traded, as he's shooting a paltry 36.2 percent from the field with just 2.0 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.1 blocks in 17.5 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:49 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver starts for Ilyasova (ill)
    Anthony Tolliver started Wednesday's game in place of Ersan Ilyasova (illness), posting six points, two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in 35 minutes.

    Advice: The veteran's main virtue is perimeter shooting, as he's averaging 1.4 triples on 36.7 percent shooting beyond the arc. He does almost nothing else to help fantasy owners, however, which limits him to being a deep-league specialist. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:49 pm
  • Lance Stephenson gets 12 points in 24 minutes
    Lance Stephenson logged 24 minutes on Wednesday, his highest playing time since Dec. 2, finishing a tough road loss with 12 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: Born Ready made 4-of-5 shots with only one turnover, rounding out an unusually efficient game. He was baited into a technical foul by Jae Crowder at one point, which got a nice chuckle from the Celtics' bench, and Boston wound up getting the last laugh with a 17-12 edge in overtime. Stephenson is playing more with Austin Rivers (hand) out of commission, but he's still not a fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:11 pm
  • Wes Johnson chips in across board vs. Celtics
    Wes Johnson chipped in seven points, one 3-pointer, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks in just 22 minutes of action vs. Boston on Wednesday.

    Advice: Johnson played 42 minutes with Paul Pierce resting on Monday, and Doc Rivers continues to rely on him as a key rotation player. Tonight's line doesn't jump out, but Johnson's ability to chip in 3-pointers, blocks and steals makes him a viable option until Blake Griffin gets back on the court. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:09 pm
  • Bryce Dejean-Jones scores 17 in 43 minutes
    Bryce Dejean-Jones is not expected to play on Thursday.

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

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

    Advice: Reggie Jackson was a late scratch due to an illness, so the Pistons will have a chance to showcase Jennings. Although, coach Stan Van Gundy has shot down every trade rumor. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:31 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver will start Wednesday vs. DEN
    Anthony Tolliver will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets with Ersan Illyasova (illness) unavailable.

    Advice: Tolliver could be getting some heavy minutes tonight with Detroit so banged up, and with a favorable matchup against Denver, he's someone to consider as a punt play in DFS. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:00 pm
  • Jarnell Stokes sent back to the D-League
    Jarnell Stokes has been assigned to Miami's D-League affiliate.

    Advice: He's going down for the D-League All-Star game. Stokes is not a fantasy option in any format. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:23 pm
  • John Henson out again for Thursday
    John Henson (back) will not play against the Wizards on Thursday.

    Advice: It'll be Miles Plumlee starting again on Thursday. Hopefully, Henson will be back after the break and get close to 20 minutes. He's not the worst stash out there on the off chance the Bucks break up their team. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:30 pm

  • Jerryd Bayless plays 32 minutes in win
    Jerryd Bayless played 32 minutes vs. the Celtics on Tuesday with 14 points, two assists, one board and four 3-pointers.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

  • Gerald Henderson scores 16 points
    Gerald Henderson scored 16 points with three rebounds, one assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: He played some important minutes as both teams went small. The Blazers are likely going to try and unload Henderson and his expiring contract, especially since guys like Allen Crabbe have stepped. He's only worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:38 pm
  • Wes Johnson gets 42 minutes in start
    Wes Johnson started in place of Paul Pierce (rest) on Monday with seven points, nine rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer on 3-of-13 from the field in 42 minutes against the 76ers.

    Advice: He did not shoot the ball well, but the across-the-board output has been the key for Johnson. In his last five, he averaged 9.0 points, 5.2 boards, 1.4 blocks, 1.6 steals and 2.0 treys. He's basically been a better version of Danny Green right now and should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:25 pm
  • Chris McCullough plays 11 minutes in debut
    Chris McCullough (knee) played 11 minutes in his NBA debut on Monday vs. the Nuggets, scoring two points with two boards, one block and one steal.

    Advice: The rookie was incredibly active in his limited minutes and his athleticism really stood out. The Nets are obviously going to ease him into the rotation because of how much time he missed due to his knee surgery, so expect him to have some minute restrictions for a while. He's an excellent stash in dynasty formats and owners in deeper leagues should keep an eye on him. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:57 pm
  • Chris McCullough (knee) could debut Monday
    Chris McCullough (knee) could make his NBA debut on Monday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: A previous report said that he is expected to play, but coach Tony Brown said the rookie will only play if the right situation presents itself. He has been rehabbing his knee for about a year, so expect his minutes to be very limited right out of the gate. Owners in deeper leagues should keep an eye on him. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:12 pm
  • Jerryd Bayless (ankle) is probable
    Jerryd Bayless (ankle) is probable for Tuesday against the Celtics.

    Advice: He suffered a minor tweak over the weekend and should be good to go. Bayless will back up Michael Carter-Williams and is only a low-end stash with MCW possibly being traded. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:54 pm
  • Wes Johnson getting the start
    Wes Johnson will start against the 76ers on Monday in place of Paul Pierce (rest).

    Advice: He has actually played really well and is putting up early-round value in the last month or so. Johnson should be owned in standard leagues with some added value for tonight. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:48 pm
  • John Henson (back) remains out on Tuesday
    John Henson (back) did not practice on Monday, and he will not play on Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: This will now be six straight games in street clothes for Henson, and there is no clear timetable for his return. It's irresponsible to stash Henson in standard formats considering he's just a blocks specialist even when healthy, but those in deeper leagues (16-plus teams) should wait until we get a clear diagnosis until making a decision. The time off during All-Star Weekend should help. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:32 am

  • O.J. Mayo expected to return on Tuesday night
    O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) is expected to make his return on Tuesday vs. Boston.

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

    Chris McCullough (knee) is expected to make his season debut on Monday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: The rookie has been rehabbing a knee injury all season and he was on the active roster for the first time on Friday. McCullough will likely be very limited right out of the gate, but he's worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:54 am
  • Jarnell Stokes recalled from D-League
    The Heat have recalled Jarnell Stokes from the D-League.

  • Damian Lillard praises Gerald Henderson
    Damian Lillard attributes Gerald Henderson's recent success to him being healthy.

    Advice: "I think he's just healthy," Lillard said. "He was coming off hip surgery, so it took some time for him to get in shape. He missed training camp. He had to get in shape, he had to get his rhythm back, he had to get his feel back, get comfortable with our sets, comfortable being out there with the guys. I think the last couple of weeks, you're starting to see him get comfortable. He's finally back." Henderson is averaging 13.3 points and 6.0 rebounds in February, but his expiring contract could draw some interest at the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:13 am
  • Dejean-Jones has a letdown in loss
    Bryce Dejean-Jones scored one point with one rebound and two assists in 20 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

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

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

    Advice: It's one of the greatest mysteries why Douglas is getting run because the Pelicans continue to get torched while he's out there. He is only taking away from the other guys and has very little fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:30 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver scores 17 points in loss
    Anthony Tolliver scored 17 points with four rebounds, one assist, three steals and five 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

    Advice: He took some minutes away from Ersan Ilyasova tonight because Ilyasova couldn't connect on anything. Tolliver could potentially benefit from the Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (groin) injury because Marcus Morris can play all small forward, but he'll need to do it again after not playing more than 19 minutes in any of his previous three games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:03 pm
  • Brandon Jennings scores just four
    Brandon Jennings scored four points with three assists, one steal and one turnover in 16 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

    Advice: This was a good matchup to go with Jennings next to Reggie Jackson, but that didn't happen. Jennings looks like a cut candidate for those who added him after the Kentavious Caldwell-Pope injury. If you want to stash him until the deadline for deeper leagues, that's not a bad idea.

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

    Advice: He scored all 15 points in the first half and disappeared after that. Bayless does have some stash appeal with some trade rumors popping up on Michael Carter-Williams, but it's only for deeper leagues right now. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:16 pm
  • Lance Stephenson scores 13 points
    Lance Stephenson scored 13 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and one turnover against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: He made all six from the field and was oozing with confidence. "I feel like nobody can guard me in this league," Stephenson said after the game. Someone needs to get Lance some League Pass to watch Kawhi Leonard. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:58 pm
  • Wes Johnson blocks four shots
    Wes Johnson blocked four shots against the Magic on Friday with five points and five boards.

    Advice: There is nothing wrong with coming off the bench and Johnson is developing a knack for doing something nice on the stat sheet. He should be owned in standard leagues right now with third-round value in his last eight. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:56 pm
  • Kidd expects Mayo (hamstring) to play Tuesday
    Jason Kidd said that he expects O.J. Mayo (sore left hamstring) to play Tuesday vs. the Celtics.

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

  • John Henson (back) out Friday vs. the Jazz
    John Henson (back) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: It'll be Henson's fifth straight game on the sidelines, which will allow Miles Plumlee to get some extra run, although that doesn't matter in almost any league. Henson is nothing more than a shot blocking specialist, and he's not really worth holding onto in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:31 pm

  • Chris McCullough active for Nets on Friday
    Nets rookie Chris McCullough will be on the active roster on Friday.

    Advice: McCullough has been out due to a knee injury all season and this is the first time he'll be active, though it's unlikely that he'll get any playing time. "It's gravy to get him games this season," interim coach Tony Brown said recently. "Experience wise, he's behind. Even though he was hurt, potentially, if he was healthy he could be a lottery pick in next year's draft." For now, he's not worth touching in re-draft leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:39 pm
  • Toney Douglas plays six minutes
    Toney Douglas played six minutes with one assist and one steal against the Lakers on Thursday.

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

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

  • No SG minutes for Brandon Jennings
    Brandon Jennings played 16 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday with 11 points, three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

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

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

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

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

  • Jarnell Stokes sent back down to D-League
    Jarnell Stokes has been sent down for yet another D-League stint.

    Advice: He's played in just four games for the Heat this season, leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:20 pm
  • Report: Brandon Jennings being linked to BKN?
    The Pistons and Nets have reportedly been discussing a potential trade that would send Brandon Jennings to Brooklyn in exchange for Thaddeus Young.

    Advice: Several teams around the league have reportedly expressed interest in acquiring Jennings, but Brooklyn has the most obvious need for a starting point guard after Jarret Jack suffered a season-ending knee injury. According to sources of Sheridan Hoops, the Nets may need to include an additional asset to get things done, which could be Shane Larkin or Jack. A move to Brooklyn could only be good for Jennings' fantasy value, while Young would really hurt the value of Ersan Ilyasova and Stanley Johnson in Detroit. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:44 pm

    Wesley Johnson scored 12 points with three rebounds, one assist, two blocks, three steals and three 3-pointers against the Wolves on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has a little Tony Allen to his fantasy game with the steals while he's been very good at connecting on treys. Before this game, 81.6 percent of Johnson's shots in his last five are without a dribble, so he's getting a lot of help from Chris Paul. He's put up third-round value in his last seven, so he's worth owning. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:22 pm
  • Bryce Dejean-Jones looking good in reality
    Bryce Dejean-Jones scored eight points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes against the Spurs on Wednesday.

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

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

    Advice: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope left early with a groin injury, and it sounds like KCP will miss time. While guys like Stanley Johnson, Marcus Morris and Ersan Ilyasova will all see a boost in minutes, Jennings could as well. He's not a must-add player, but he should definitely be on your radar going forward, especially if KCP is going to miss a lot of time. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:50 pm
  • Jerryd Bayless scores 16 points off the bench
    Jerryd Bayless scored 16 points off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Blazers with five assists, one board, one block and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

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

  • Gerald Henderson scores 14 w/ nine boards
    Gerald Henderson scored 14 points with nine rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: He has scored in double digits in four out of his last five games, but his recent spike in playing time could be because the Blazers are trying to boost his value prior to the trade deadline. Regardless, Henderson doesn't have much upside and his role with minutes in the lower 20s is not appealing, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:59 pm
