    Player Notes

    • Bernard James expected to start
      Benard James will start against the Pelicans on Monday.

      Advice: The Mavs are going big against the Pelicans, which makes sense. James is still not a fantasy option in almost any league Rajon Rondo, Monta Ellis, Richard Jefferson and Dirk Nowitzki are the other starters. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Knight to start against the Heat
      Brandon Knight (hip) will start against the Heat on Monday.

      Advice: He is going to wear a pad on his hip to help protect the hip pointer injury suffered on Saturday. Knight hasn't quite hit his stride with his new team, but he's getting a lot of shots and even played 48 minutes in an overtime game against OKC last week. He's a must start player while this news doesn't necessarily hurt Eric Bledsoe because he's played well next to Knight. Gerald Green should be benched or even cut. Rotoworld.com

    • Robert Covington, Jason Richardson out Monday
      Robert Covington (elbow) and Jason Richardson (rest) will not play Monday against the Raptors.

      Advice: The 76ers are going to start Isaiah Canaan, JaKarr Sampson, Luc Mbah a Moute, Nerlens Noel and Henry Sims in a bigger lineup. As for Covington, he has a shot to play Wednesday and his elbow injury doesn't sound severe. That said, his owners will probably want to bench him given how he hasn't played well. To be clear, he should be owned in all leagues. Jerami Grant and Hollis Thompson benefit more than Sampson does for most fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com

    • Festus Ezeli's suspension concludes Sunday
      Festus Ezeli will return to the Warriors now that he's served his one-game suspension.

      Advice: This is just a reminder after Ezeli served his suspension in Sunday's win over the Celtics. Rotoworld.com

    • Derrick Rose says he'll return this season
      Derrick Rose (knee) said that he would return this season.

      Advice: Rose has already started his rehab and all reports have been tremendously positive since his outpatient surgery. While we're likely to get daily Rose updates for however long he's sidelined, it's important to remember that the earliest he'll return is at the back end of March. That doesn't leave a lot of time for him to contribute to fantasy owners looking to win their postseason matchups. Rotoworld.com
