    Player Notes

    • Marshall quiet in start for the Bucks
      Kendall Marshall started at point guard in Friday's blowout win over the Hawks, scoring just four points on 2-of-6 shooting with five assists and two steals in 25 minutes.

      Advice: Marshall is a terrible asset in standard leagues unless he is dominating touches and getting 35-plus minutes per game. That's not going to happen with this team barring a number of injuries . Rotoworld.com

    • Henson (foot) returns to action on Friday
      John Henson (foot) returned to action on Friday, logging 18 minutes on his way to five points, five boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks.

      Advice: Henson did this damage in a garbage-time environment but not to the extent that we should totally discount this performance. He hasn't been able to stay healthy and his effectiveness has been a problem at times, but when playing at peak levels he has flashed plenty of upside. Ersan Ilyasova's concussion-related absence could help his stock and we don't want to get too high over one game, but he's worth a look as a speculative add. Rotoworld.com

    • Mayo scores 11 points off the bench
      O.J. Mayo scored 11 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 5-of-8 shots (including a three) with five rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes.

      Advice: It didn't look like he'd be in the rotation at one point but he got into the game and made a little bit of noise, but this is the same exact stat line that has qualified as a 'good night' lately. Jason Kidd said he likes him coming off the bench after the game, too, so there's not a lot to like with Mayo's current situation. Rotoworld.com

    • McHale: Terrence Jones could miss 4-6 weeks
      Coach Kevin McHale said Terrence Jones (leg) could be out for a month to six weeks.

      Advice: Well, now it makes a little more sense why the Rockets picked up Josh Smith. Jones' nerve damage to his leg was much worse than the Rockets were letting on, so it'll likely be a two-way split at power forward for Smith and Donatas Motiejunas -- they'll also get some minutes at center. Jones can be cut in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Marco Belinelli scores 13 points off bench
      Marco Belinelli scored 13 points off the bench against the Pelicans on Friday with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

      Advice: He's played 32.2 minutes per game in his last five, averaging 12.0 points, 2.6 boards, 1.8 assists and 1.0 treys. Belinelli is the biggest beneficiary of Kawhi Leonard (hand) missing time, but he's still not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com
