    Player Notes

    • Johnny O'Bryant plays six minutes
      Johnny O'Bryant played six minutes on Saturday with four points.

      Advice: He picked up two quick fouls and that was that. O'Bryant was able to push guys around at summer league, but that doesn't work against Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan. He can be cut in extremely deep leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Khris Middleton has well-rounded game
      Khris Middleton played 24 minutes off the bench for 12 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: It was a big step up from his one-point stinker on Thursday and Middleton has fared well in three of his last four. He really doesn't do much outside of score while making only 43.0 percent from the field with 1.3 steals, so his ceiling isn't high enough to grab in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • O.J. Mayo scores three points
      O.J. Mayo scored three points in 23 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday with one rebound, three assists and two turnovers.

      Advice: Well, he had three solid outings before this one, but a sub-par game from Mayo is nothing new. He only has season averages of 0.7 steals, 1.2 triples and 0.2 blocks to go with 1.9 turnovers, so there really are not enough positives to add him in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Dudley scores 16 points vs. Clippers
      Jared Dudley excelled against his former team on Saturday with 16 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

      Advice: That's back-to-back good games from Dudley and he's passed Khris Middleton as the waiver-wire add du jour. Dudley's done a fair amount of ball handling to go with his perimeter shooting, so there is enough upside to at least give him a look. That said, trusting coach Jason Kidd's rotation is like trusting a dingo to look after your baby. Rotoworld.com

    • Danilo Gallinari plays 28 minutes, scores 19
      Danilo Gallinari scored a season-high 19 points against the Pacers during a 76-93 win on Saturday with three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: It's the most minutes he's played all month and it crushed his previous monthly average of 17.1 minutes. Gallinari has been shut down due to knee soreness before and that concern will always be hanging over his fantasy value. Unless you're going to cut something you're not going to terribly miss, it's tough to add the Rooster. Rotoworld.com

    • Timofey Mozgov blocks five with 15 boards
      Timofey Mozgov played well in 36 minutes against the Pacers with six points, 15 boards and five blocks.

      Advice: This one was overdue. Mozgov had a season high in blocks and was one board shy of his season high. He was really struggling earlier this month, but nights like tonight serve as a reminder that he's still worth owning in standard leagues no matter how many times you've seen the video of Blake Griffin dunking on him.

    • Wilson Chandler scores four points
      Wilson Chandler could not get it going against the Pacers on Saturday with four points, three rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: He made 1-of-10 from the field and is in a mini-slump from beyond the arc, making just three of his last 15 attempts. Chandler is still getting solid minutes even with Danilo Gallinari suddenly coming on. He's still worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Kenneth Faried scores four in awful game
      Kenneth Faried had one of his worst games of the season on Saturday against the Pacers, making 2-of-10 from the field with four points, six rebounds, one assist and one steal.

      Advice: He had a couple solid games before tonight and maybe the second half of a back-to-back got to him. Darrell Arthur (leg) could miss time, so Faried may get a bigger chance to redeem himself from a slow start. His owners can't be happy with him, but they just have to hang in there. Rotoworld.com

    • Donald Sloan scores nine in a loss
      Donald Sloan drew another start on Saturday during a 76-73 loss to the Nuggets with nine points, seven boards, four assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

      Advice: He is not going to start much longer and tonight was just a complete lost cause. The Pacers made 30.7 percent from the field and had 18 points in the paint. Sloan can be dropped in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Rodney Stuckey stinks in 35 minutes
      Rodney Stuckey was a disaster during one of the ugliest games of the year, making 1-of-10 from the field for four points, two rebounds, three assists and two turnovers.

      Advice: This was bad and Stuckey is known for his inefficient games. In fact, tonight was the 37th game of his career with a field goal percentage failing to crack 10.0 percent (with at least one attempt). This is what his owners will have to deal with, so adjust accordingly. Rotoworld.com

    • David West scores 19 points on 22 FGAs
      David West scored 19 points with 10 rebounds, five assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

      Advice: He made just 8-of-22 from the field for a usage rate of 35.1. It's a horribly inefficient game, but who can blame him when his teammates can't make shots? West still hasn't quite got it going, but he should start heating up soon. Rotoworld.com

    • Roy Hibbert doesn't score in 24 minutes
      Roy Hibbert did not score in 24 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday with five rebounds and four turnovers.

      Advice: "I couldn’t get into a rhythm, I just haven’t been playing the way I have been," Hibbert said. Uh oh, here we go again. Hibbert had a tremendous start in 2013-14 and fizzled out worse than leaving a bottle of soda open for a day, and he might be doing it again. In his last five, he's averaged 6.6 points, 5.4 boards, 0.6 blocks and 2.0 turnovers on 33.3 percent from the field. It's not time to repeatedly press the panic button yet, but his fantasy owners should be on alert. Rotoworld.com

    • Chandler Parsons double-doubles on Sat.
      Chandler Parsons double-doubled in a 99-93 win over the Spurs on Saturday with 16 points, 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

      Advice: It's his first double-double of the season, but he was sub-par everywhere else. Parsons shouldn't see his fantasy value change much with Rajon Rondo around, so his fantasy owners should stay the course. Rotoworld.com

    • Greg Smith backing up Ty Chandler now
      Greg Smith played 10 minutes off the bench on Saturday with one point and one board.

      Advice: Yes, this is meaningless for just about everyone who plays fantasy basketball, but he is Tyson Chandler's backup now. Chandler does have a lot of injuries in his past so many Smith makes his way onto the fantasy radar at some point. Rotoworld.com

    • Devin Harris still has a good game
      Devin Harris played well of the bench against the Spurs on Saturday with 13 points, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

      Advice: He soaked up most of the bench guard minutes, which is encouraging. J.J. Barea took the biggest hit, so Harris' value might be about where it was before the Rajon Rondo deal. Rotoworld.com

    • Rajon Rondo has a mediocre debut, scores six
      Rajon Rondo had an underwhelming Dallas debut on Saturday, making 3-of-11 from the field for six points with seven rebounds, nine assists, two steals and four turnovers.

      Advice: He was a bystander as Monta had it all. Rondo's shot selection wasn't great tonight and the Mavericks might want him to dial down his mid-range jumpers if they want to remain No. 1 in offensive efficiency. The Celtics led the NBA in pace while he was there -- Dallas was 11th at the time of the trade -- while Rondo is posting career lows in several categories, so it's hard to get too excited about his fantasy value in standard leagues. He's obviously still worth owning, though. Rotoworld.com

    • Eric Bledsoe scores 25 points in win at MSG
      Eric Bledsoe was terrific against the Knicks during a 99-90 win on Saturday with 25 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

      Advice: He carved up the Knicks and they didn't have anyone to cover him. Bledsoe has not been affected by the return of Isaiah Thomas, averaging 15.8 points, 4.8 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.8 triples. He can be viewed as a top-10 fantasy shooting guard. Rotoworld.com

    • Larry Sanders will return for Saturday's game
      Larry Sanders will return from his one-game suspension on Saturday vs. the Clippers.

      Advice: He was suspended for Thursday's game against the kings for pushing Nicolas Batum in the back, but the Bucks will be glad to have him back in time to play against DeAndre Jordan. However, Sanders has been very inconsistent this season with averages of 7.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game, so owners may want to bench him until he turns it around. Rotoworld.com

    • Ed Davis scores season-high 18 points
      Ed Davis scored a season-high 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting with nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 32 minutes in Friday's 104-103 loss to the Thunder.

      Advice: Davis has been on the side of a milk carton lately and this is a much-needed game to bring him back onto watch lists. It's going to take more than one good game to get our support as an add in standard formats, but if you have dead weight and want to take a stab on a turnaround there is some upside to latch onto.

    • Jack next man up after Williams calf injury
      Jarrett Jack scored 13 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block and one three in Friday's loss, and he could be in line for more playing time if Deron Williams' calf injury is serious.

      Advice: Williams is probably heading for an MRI and he's not the most durable guy around, so Jack makes sense as a speculative add. Just keep in mind that he has been pretty terrible lately, but that could be a function of being a secondary player next to two guys in Williams and Joe Johnson that dominate the ball. Rotoworld.com
