    • Tony Allen questionable for Tuesday
      Tony Allen (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game at Dallas.

      Advice: Allen, who was recently demoted to a bench role behind Jeff Green, is headed for a game-time call. We likely won't have his status until 7:30pm ET. Rotoworld.com

    • Mike Conley, Tony Allen questionable Tuesday
      Mike Conley (wrist) and Tony Allen (ankle) are considered questionable for Tuesday's game at Dallas.

      Advice: Conley sprained his left (shooting) wrist during Monday night's win at Orlando. He fought through it until the game turned into a blowout in the third quarter, but clearly wasn't himself as he played just 22 minutes total and went 2-of-8 from the field with zero assists. The Grizzlies are on a back-to-back, so there's no shootaround to get updates from. We likely won't have official word on the status of Conley or Allen until roughly 7:30pm ET. If they can't go, Beno Udrih gets a big bump and Jeff Green gets a little one. Rotoworld.com

    • Tony Wroten weighing options on ACL tear
      Tony Wroten (knee) is weighing his options on what to do about his partial ACL tear.

      Advice: Surgery was originally thought to be the only option, but Wroten still wants to explore other alternatives. "A partial tear is so different than a torn ACL," Wroten said. "It is not a guarantee, 100 percent, that I have to have surgery. It is a tough decision, an important decision that I want to make." Whether he opts for surgery or not, Wroten is likely to miss the rest of the regular season while Larry Drew II, K.J. McDaniels, Robert Covington, and Jerami Grant will all get a small boost in fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

    • Terrence Jones questionable for Weds
      Terrence Jones (leg) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks.

      Advice: This comes as good news as this is the first change to Jones' status in months. Jones doesn't belong on standard league fantasy rosters as he'll likely be eased back into a crowded rotation alongside Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith, but he's worth a flier in deeper leagues.

    • Dwight Howard questionable for Weds
      Dwight Howard (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Mavericks.

      Advice: We'll update Howard's status as more news becomes available, but there's a good chance he sits out a second consecutive game after leaving Friday's game with a sprained ankle. If Howard sits, Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith, and Joey Dorsey would see the biggest boost in fantasy value. Rotoworld.com

    • Earl Barron set to sign in China
      Earl Barron has signed a deal with Shanxi of the Chinese Basketball Association.

      Advice: Barron had been laying with the Bakersfield Jam of the D-League, but will now take his talents to Shanxi. He could join an NBA team after the Chinese season ends in February, but there's no reason for fantasy owners to monitor Barron's status going forward. Rotoworld.com

    • Chase Budinger due for minutes increase
      Chase Budinger and Glenn Robinson III are likely to see more playing time with Robbie Hummel (hand) out, according to Wolves head coach Flip Saunders.

      Advice: "We only have like 11 healthy guys," Saunders said. "Other guys will get opportunities." While both players will get a bump in playing time now that Hummel is due to miss at least the next four weeks, neither will provide much fantasy value outside of being a punt play for daily leaguers.

    • Kevin Martin hopes to play vs BOS on Weds
      Kevin Martin returned to shooting workouts on Monday and is hopeful that he'll be able to play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

      Advice: This is the first time that Martin has been able to shoot since he had fluid drained from his surgicallyrepaired wrist nearly a week ago. "It feels better now than it did when I started practicing two weeks ago," said Martin, out since November. "Getting it drained helps a lot. I’ll give it one more hard day of practice and see how I feel." We'll update Martin's status after Wednesday's shootaround, but his eventual return will cut into the production of Mo Williams, Thaddeus Young, and Andrew Wiggins. Rotoworld.com

    • Knicks, Langston Galloway agree to deal
      Langston Galloway has reportedly agreed to a deal that will keep him with the Knicks.

      Advice: With Galloway's second 10-day contract set to expire on Tuesday, this move will keep the 23-year-old with the Knicks for at least this season. We don't currently have word if Galloway got the guaranteed contract he had been seeking for 2015-16, but he's worth owning in standard fantasy leagues as long as he continues to see big minutes for the Knicks.

    • J.R. Smith thriving with no nightlife in CLE
      J.R. Smith told David Aldridge of NBA.com that the lack of nightlife in Cleveland has helped him focus.

      Advice: Smith told Aldridge that the he's been able to focus on basketball in Cleveland since there aren't as many distractions as New York City. "I think this is the best situation for me, 'cause there's nothing but basketball," Smith said. "There's nothing you expect but basketball. There's nothing, there's no going out, there's no late nights." Smith is averaging 15.6 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.4 steals, and 3.8 treys in his last 10 games and deserves to be owned in all standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Chris Andersen may miss Bucks game on Tues
      Chris Andersen (elbow, back) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

      Advice: Andersen will be re-evaluated closer to Tuesday's 7:30 PM ET tip-off, but this shouldn't affect fantasy owners as the Birdman is only averaging 5.1 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks on the season. The biggest ripple effect to Andersen potentially sitting would be Hassan Whiteside potentially having another huge game as he'd see more minutes with Birdman out. Rotoworld.com

    • Luol Deng doubtful for Tuesday vs Bucks
      Luol Deng (sore calf) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

      Advice: Deng missed Tuesday's shootaround with his sore calf and will be be re-evaluated closer to game time on Tuesday night. Danny Granger and James Ennis are likely to pick up most of Deng's minutes if he sits, but neither are worth a look outside of daily leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Dewayne Dedmon may start for Magic
      Dewayne Dedmon may start for the Orlando Magic after starting the second half of Monday's loss to the Grizzlies.

      Advice: Dedmon started the second half of Monday's loss after Channing Frye was benched for defensive reasons and head coach Jacque Vaughn was vague when asked if Dedmon would start the Magic's next game. "I wanted a different look in the second half" Vaughn said. "I thought Dewayne’s energy was very spirited, and overall he was aggressive in his nature guarding the post." Dedmon is worth a flier in deep fantasy leagues, but he's unlikely to see enough consistent minutes to be added in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Brandon Jennings has successful surgery
      Brandon Jennings tweeted that he had a successful surgery on his left Achilles on Monday.

      Advice: Jennings' tweet included a photograph of him in a hospital bad and a few words thanking fans for their love and support. The 25-year-old can be dropped in standard fantasy leagues as he'll miss the rest of the 2014-15 season, while D.J. Augustin now becomes a must-own player. Rotoworld.com

    • Griffin just misses 3x2; Jordan huge on D
      Blake Griffin scored 14 points on 6-of-17 shooting with nine rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and one block in Monday's win over the Nuggets.

      Advice: Griffin hasn't fixed his rebounding issue but he has hit 54.7 percent from the field over the past month, lifting his value over that span into the top-20 range. It's unlikely that he shoots at that rate over the long run, and with no improvement to show rebounding the ball this would qualify as a mini sell-high moment. DeAndre Jordan went for seven points, 12 boards, three steals and four blocks in the win. Rotoworld.com

    • Chandler goes for 18 & 10 in Nuggets loss
      Wilson Chandler scored 18 points on 7-of-18 shooting (including three treys) with 10 rebounds, two assists and one steal in Monday's loss to the Clippers.

      Advice: Chandler is playing well and belongs in all lineups, but owners should beware that he is on the trading block and his situation is about as good as it gets right now. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:09 pm
    • Afflalo posts solid line against the Clippers
      Arron Afflalo scored 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, six assists, three steals and one block on Monday.

      Advice: This will be one of Afflalo's better lines due to the versatility and barring a major change he'll continue to return reliable late-round value. Ty Lawson added 19 points and 11 assists in tonight's loss to the Clippers. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:04 pm
    • Nelson plays just 13 minutes on Monday
      Jameer Nelson played just 13 minutes on Monday, scoring two points with two steals and two assists.

      Advice: Nelson had been hanging by a thread in most regular sized leagues and this is probably your sign to move on. If Ty Lawson falters at any point due to injury or a minimal suspension, be ready to move quickly on him because he'll probably be worth owning. Rotoworld.com

    • Splash Bros, Kyle, Wes, & J.J. in 3PT contest
      Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry, Kyle Korver, Wes Matthews and J.J. Redick are five of the six participants in the 3-point contest during All Star Weekend.

      Advice: We chose to give Klay the blurb because of his historic night but this is as loaded of a field as we've seen in years. Who will the mystery sixth person be? We're hoping for Kendrick Perkins, but we'll settle for Big Baby. Rotoworld.com

    • Ingles posts another versatile line
      Joe Ingles scored two points on 1-of-6 shooting with four rebounds, five assists and four steals over 31 minutes in Monday's loss to the Celtics.

      Advice: Ingles isn't going to score a lot but the other contributions are there for standard league owners. Give him a look. Rotoworld.com
