    Player Notes

    • Nene will play against the Raptors on Sat
      Nene (foot) will play against the Raptors on Saturday.

      Advice: He missed Wednesday for precautionary reasons and should get his normal amount of playing time. Nene and Kris Humphries will split the minutes at power forward. Rotoworld.com

    • Jared Sullinger to take more shots?
      Jared Sullinger said that coach Brad Stevens asked him to take more shots.

      Advice: There's been a noticeable increase in his attempts, but he's not shooting the ball well. In his last eight games, Sullinger posted a usage rate of 28.0 with averages of 15.9 points, 8.3 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.0 treys on 41.0 percent from the field. With Kelly Olynyk (ankle) out, Sully should put up bigger numbers. Rotoworld.com

    • Carmelo Anthony thinks he will play Sunday
      Carmelo Anthony said that he thinks he will play against the Lakers on Sunday.

      Advice: He was able to play in a back-to-back set on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, but the Knicks likely won't risk him if he's not feeling up to it. We will leave Anthony off the injury report for now, but his owners will want to check back after shootaround Sunday morning for the latest updates. Expect Lance Thomas and Tim Hardaway Jr. to benefit the most if Melo sits. Rotoworld.com

    • Cavaliers to pick up Timofey Mozgov's option
      The Cavaliers will pick up Timofey Mosgov's $4.9 million team option for next season according to Sportando.

      Advice: Mozgov is literally a huge reason why the Cavaliers have had so much success in recent weeks, and the decision to bring him back couldn't have been any easier. Mozgov is going to be a double-double threat every night from here on out, so he is going to be worth owing in most leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Kevin Durant (toe) is a game-time decision
      Kevin Durant was a partial participant at shootaround on Saturday morning, and he will be a game-time decision against Memphis.

      Advice: He has been sidelined for the past two games due to his sprained toe, but a huge matchup against Memphis could prove too tempting for him not to play. Durant's owners will have to check back for official confirmation prior to tip-off, but he certainly belongs in all lineups is if he's activated. If Durant sits, expect Perry Jones to draw another start, but Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka are the true beneficiaries if that's the case. Rotoworld.com

    • Mike Conley (wrist) still probable for Sat
      Mike Conley (wrist) participated in shootaround on Saturday morning, and is still listed as probable to play against the Thunder.

      Advice: He hasn't been able to play in the Grizzlies' last two games, so there's a good chance that they keep a close eye on his minutes. Conley is also going to have to chase Russell Westbrook around the court all game, so owners in daily leagues may want to look elsewhere. If Conley ends up sitting as a precaution, Beno Udrih will stay relevant for a little bit longer. Rotoworld.com

    • Luis Scola (rest) will be active vs. Kings
      Luis Scola (rest) will be active against the Kings on Saturday.

      Advice: Scola was a healthy scratch on Thursday so that he could get some extra rest, but he will have to step back into the rotation vs. the Kings now that Lavoy Allen has been ruled out with a sore knee. However, considering that Scola has been a major disappointment this season, owners outside of deeper leagues should look the other way. Rotoworld.com

    • Knicks sign Lance Thomas for rest of season
      The Knicks announced on Saturday that they have signed forward Lance Thomas for the remainder of the season.

      Advice: Thomas has exceeded expectations since arriving from the Thunder, and he has earned a decent role at both forward spots for the Knicks. Thomas doesn't have a lot of upside, but his playing time could increase if Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire miss more time in the future, and all indications say that they will. For now, Thomas can be ignored outside of deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Festus Ezeli returns to action in D-League
      Festus Ezeli hasn't played for the Warriors since Dec. 23 due to a nagging ankle injury, but he returned to action with Santa Cruz in the D-League on Friday.

      Advice: While it's great to see him finally over his ankle injury, Ezeli has a long way to go before he will back in the Warriors' rotation. Unless a few injuries open up some playing time, Ezeli can be ignored in almost all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com

    • Green gets his first DNP of the season
      Gerald Green got his first DNP-CD of the season on Friday against the Bulls.

      Advice: Green was not hurt and he also said it was surprising, but looking somewhat jovial on the bench compared to the usual display of unhappiness when benched it was curious to say the least. Jeff Hornacek said he could very well get tapped next game and it wouldn't be surprising if he got a few extra looks. His body of work on the year suggests he should be owned in most formats.

    • Noah posts productive line in loss to Suns
      Joakim Noah backed up a very good night on Thursday with a solid outing on Friday against the Suns, scoring nine points on 3-of-8 shooting with 10 rebounds, five assists, one steal and two blocks in 33 minutes.

      Advice: As Noah builds a foundation since returning from injury owners will want to step up their efforts to sell him high. Between his injury risk and the fact he's not needed to handle the ball so much this year, he's simply in a different tax bracket than his public perception would suggest. Rotoworld.com

    • Brooks scores 21 points off the bench
      Aaron Brooks scored 21 points off the bench on Friday, hitting 8-of-13 shots (including three treys) with two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes.

      Advice: Brooks has flown under the radar and now has a month of top-100 value under his belt. During that 17-game span he has averaged 12.5 points, 2.1 threes, 2.2 boards, 2.2 assists with 1.0 combined steals and blocks. He's shooting a bit high at 44.7 percent in that span, but that's his field goal percentage for the year (41.7 percent career). His role seems tenuous and things could change, but those numbers are worthy of a pickup. Rotoworld.com

    • Lee quiet in 25 minutes during loss
      David Lee managed just seven points, three rebounds, three assists and one block in 25 minutes off the bench on Friday.

      Advice: Lee started his (delayed) season off with some surprising defensive stats and that just hasn't continued. If he wants to be a popcorn number guy, he'll be relegated to deep leagues only. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:19 pm
    • Ennis scores 15 points in 32 minutes
      James Ennis scored 15 points off the bench on Friday, with four rebounds and three treys in 32 minutes.

      Advice: Ennis did not record a steal or block and he did this with Luol Deng (calf) and Dwyane Wade (hamstring) out. Of course, the Heat look like a team that could deal with injuries and/or tanking down the stretch, so owners should keep an eye on Ennis as the season goes. For now, there's still not a lot to grab onto in standard formats. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 11:04 pm
    • Villanueva scores seson-high 20 points
      Charlie Villanueva scored a season-high 20 points off the bench on Friday, hitting six threes with five rebounds and one block in 23 minutes.

      Advice: Villanueva had a few nice games earlier in the month but has been dead quiet ever since. If he can parlay this into a few nice outings in a row we'll let you know. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:58 pm
    • Eric Gordon drops 28 and seven on the Clips
      Eric Gordon scored 28 points on 10-of-20 shooting (including five threes) with two rebounds, seven assists and one steal in Friday's win over the Clippers.

      Advice: With Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday out his touches were bound to increase and he's doing his part to give something back at the tail-end of a tumultuous contract. He's a must-start player until further notice. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:45 pm
    • Paul posts 24-8-7 line in loss to Pelicans
      Chris Paul scored 24 points on 10-of-20 shooting (including three treys) with eight rebounds, seven assists and three steals in Friday's loss to the Pelicans.

      Advice: Paul has been a top 5-6 player this season and that's right around his ADP. DeAndre Jordan went for 12 and 15 with three blocks in the loss. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:39 pm
    • Barnes struggles on Friday vs. Pelicans
      Matt Barnes was quiet on Friday against the Pelicans, hitting just 2-of-8 shots (including two threes) with three rebounds and no other stats in 30 minutes.

      Advice: Barnes has been playing at a mid-round level and owners shouldn't think about dropping him after a relatively isolated dud. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:28 pm
    • LeBron plays through wrist injury on Friday
      LeBron James played through his right (shooting) wrist injury in the Cavs' 101-90 win over the Kings on Friday, scoring 19 points on 7-of-16 shooting (including a three) with three rebounds, seven assists, four steals, two blocks and six turnovers.

      Advice: James appeared to aggravate his wrist injury during a fall but he appears to be able to play through it so owners can cautiously expect this to pass. Timofey Mozgov added seven points, eight boards, one steal and three blocks in the win. Rotoworld.com
      Yesterday, 10:18 pm
    • Love picks on hapless Kings with 23 & 10
      Kevin Love scored 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting (including two threes) with 10 rebounds and three assists in Friday's win over the Kings.

      Advice: Love took advantage of a checked-out opponent but given all of the nagging injuries and general disappointment this season, who cares? If you're tired of Love this might be a good moment to sell high. Rotoworld.com
