    Player Notes

    • Trevor Booker had 8 & 9 in loss
      Trevor Booker had eight points and nine rebounds in 19 minutes off Utah's bench on Wednesday.

      Advice: He somehow manages to post decent numbers on most nights, despite having to battle with Derrick Favors, Enes Kanter and Rudy Gobert for minutes. He'll need one of those guys to suffer an injury before you want to think about picking him up. Rotoworld.com

    • Kris Humphries double-doubles vs. Phoenix
      Kris Humphries drew a start against the Suns on Wednesday with 11 points, 15 rebounds and one assist.

      Advice: Nene (foot) did not play and it's possible he'll miss more time. Humphries fares well in his starts, averaging 8.2 points, 7.3 boards and 0.9 steals in his previous 15. Plus, several of those were with Nene active. If you need a low-ceiling big man, give him a look. For what it's worth, we'd cut Nene for Hump. Rotoworld.com

    • Al Jefferson starts, plays 35 minutes
      Al Jefferson scored 17 points in the starting lineup against the Spurs on Wednesday during a 95-86 loss, adding 16 boards, one assist and one steal in 35 minutes.

      Advice: DeMarcus Cousins is the only starting center with a higher usage rate than Al Jefferson, but Big Al might give DMC a run for his money there while Kemba Walker (knee) is out. Although, the injuries are piling up for Jefferson, so he'll be a volatile property. He's a must-start player while active, obviously. Rotoworld.com

    • Zach LaVine scores 17 points on nine FGAs
      Zach LaVine had his best game of 2015 against the Celtics on Wednesday, making 7-of-9 from the field for 17 points with four rebounds, six assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He was in complete control in his 22nd NBA start. LaVine only made 39.0 percent from the field in his previous starts, so this efficient line comes as a huge surprise. Mo Williams (personal, hip) and Ricky Rubio (ankle) should be back soon, so it's hard to grab LaVine in standard leagues as anything more than a stop-gap guy. Rotoworld.com

    • Greivis Vasquez steps up with 18 points
      Greivis Vasquez started at shooting guard again and had 18 points, four rebounds, six assists, a steal and four 3-pointers on 7-of-9 shooting in 31 minutes on Wednesday.

      Advice: After a slow start to his starting tenure, Vasquez has hit double digits in scoring in three of his last four games, and is averaging 10.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five. And that includes a dud of three points on 1-of-8 shooting a week ago. If you need a shooting guard and Mario Chalmers isn't available, think about grabbing Vasquez. Rotoworld.com
