Player Notes

  • Brandon Knight (ankle) will play vs. OKC
    Brandon Knight (ankle) will play vs. the Thunder on Sunday, but he will come off the bench.

    Advice: After an eight-game absence, Knight is finally back. His minutes will probably be held in check and he will might be a little rusty, but his owners will be pumped to have him back in their lineups. Marcus Morris will remain in the starting lineup for now, but his value could take a hit down the stretch. We will let you know how Knight holds up after the game. Rotoworld.com

  • Ish Smith posts 11/7/5 in 31 minutes vs. CLE
    Ish Smith had another solid showing on Sunday, racking up 11 points, five rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 31 minutes during a one-point loss to the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Smith has wrested away the starting PG job from Isaiah Canaan (eight points in 17 minutes) and he's been a solid top-100 point guard since mid-March. Don't hesitate to start him if you need a burst of scoring (13.7 points), 3-pointers (1.0), assists (6.8) and steals (1.5). Rotoworld.com

  • Alan Anderson scores nine pts w/ two steals
    Alan Anderson scored nine points on 3-of-6 shooting (2-of-2 from the charity stripe), with one 3-pointer, three rebounds, three assists and two steals through 28 minutes of action.

    Advice: Anderson is a guy that can do a little bit of everything, and he's seen his minutes increased over the past two games with Thaddeus Young (knee) unavailable. He's not going to blow you away with his production, but if you're in a deep league and looking for a low-end steals/3-point specialist, Anderson could be your guy. Rotoworld.com

  • Iman Shumpert (ankle) will not return Sunday
    Iman Shumpert was forced to leave Sunday's game vs. the 76ers and will not be able to return.

    Advice: Shumpert was able to walk off the floor under his own power, but the Cavaliers have no reason to risk his health and they may have just decided to keep him out as a precaution. We will update his status once we know more, but we will go ahead and consider him questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Heat. If he is unable to play, J.R. Smith would have to log big minutes while Matthew Dellavedova may see a few extra minutes off the bench as well. Shumpert finished today's game with nine points, three steals and one board in 11 minutes. Rotoworld.com

  • Monta Ellis (calf) will not play vs. Pacers
    Monta Ellis (calf) has officially been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Pacers, and Richard Jefferson will draw the start at shooting guard.

    Advice: Ellis had played in 237 consecutive games before the injury, so it's obviously a huge blow for his owners who are in the middle of fantasy playoffs. Ellis is off crutches, but he is still in a lot of pain and doesn't have a timetable to return. We will update his status once we know more, but the Mavericks will probably proceed with caution. Jefferson is worth a look in deeper leagues for owners in need of short-term value, while Rajon Rondo and Devin Harris will likely see a boost in value as well with the added responsibility on offense.
