  • Enes Kanter scores 12 points in loss
    Enes Kanter scored 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting in Monday's loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: Kanter was expected to draw the start with Steven Adams (concussion) out, but the Thunder opted to go small with Jerami Grant. Kanter added five rebounds with one assist, one steal and one block, but only played 23 minutes in the blowout. The Thunder only play one more time this week and it's against the Warriors, so it's worth noting that Kanter only played three minutes in their first meeting this season. He's been on fire in January, so we'd hope the Thunder will actually use him this time around. Rotoworld.com 41 minutes ago
  • Marreese Speights scores 23 w/ 10 boards
    Marreese Speights scored a season-high 23 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes in Monday's 120-98 win over the Thunder.

    Advice: He scored 10 of his points in garbage time during the fourth quarter, but Speights was on fire all night, hitting 8-of-15 shots from the field and 4-of-4 from the line. Speights is a per-minute monster, but the problem is that he's only eclipsed the 20-minute mark one time in January (tonight). With Blake Griffin (knee) nearing a return, it's tough to get excited about this. We'll let you know if his role grows. Rotoworld.com 59 minutes ago
  • Jordan scores 19 w/ 15 boards, 4 blocks
    DeAndre Jordan scored 19 points with 15 rebounds, two assists, two steals and four blocks in Monday's win over the Thunder.

    Advice: He was coming off a monster 24-point game with 21 rebounds and two blocks on Saturday, so it's not a surprise that he demolished a Thunder frontcourt that was missing Steven Adams (concussion). He finished 7-of-8 from the field and a respectable 5-of-8 from the line in 30 minutes. Jordan has recorded 20+ rebounds four times through seven January games, but he will have his hands full on Thursday vs. the Wolves. In their previous meeting on Nov. 12, Jordan posted 18 points, 16 rebounds and a pair of blocks of steals. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:06 pm
  • Rudy Gobert goes for 18-17-4 in win
    Rudy Gobert took advantage of the center-less Suns on Monday and racked up 18 points, 17 rebounds and four blocks in 36 minutes of a 106-101 win.

    Advice: Gobert hit 8-of-12 shots and also had a steal, and we were simply a year too early on predicting his breakout season. It's happening before our eyes, as he's averaging 12.3 points, 12.4 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game. Tyson Chandler was out and Alex Len played just 21 minutes, leaving Gobert to roam free without much opposition tonight. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:04 pm
  • Kevin Love (back) won't miss additional time
    Kevin Love (back) said that he won't miss any additional time.

    Advice: He said his back tightened up on him at Sunday's practice and it flared up when he bumped into Zaza Pachulia in the second quarter. Love did not return to the game after halftime, but the Cavs were likely being cautious due to the lopsided score. Expect Love to play on Thursday vs. the Suns. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:50 pm
  • Alex Len quiet in start for Chandler (flu)
    Alex Len started for Tyson Chandler (flu) on Monday but had just six points, five rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes.

    Advice: The Suns rolled with a small lineup for the most of the night, so Len never got loose. He played quite well when he was on the court, hitting 3-of-4 shots, and there's still a chance the Suns bench Chandler and get an up-close look at Len the rest of the way. But for now, Len is a luxury hold with hopes that he breaks out at some point. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:42 pm
  • Kelly Olynyk scores 15 off Boston bench
    Kelly Olynyk didn't replace Amir Johnson in the starting lineup on Monday, but did play through an ankle injury and hit 6-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, nine rebounds, four assists and a steal in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Olynk is playing well right now and appears to be on the cusp of starting for Boston. But even if he continues to come off the bench, he's averaging 14.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.2 3-pointers while shooting 64 percent from the field in 26 minutes a game over his last five. He's a hot pickup in fantasy right now, even if he never does crack Boston's starting five. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:36 pm
  • Al Horford comes through with 22 points
    Al Horford hit 8-of-14 shots, a 3-pointer and 5-of-5 free throws for 22 points, six rebounds and four assists in 34 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: This was Horford's most points scored since he had 23 way back on Dec. 23. His assist numbers are impressive and he's averaging 14.0 points, 7.4 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 0.8 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.6 3-pointers while shooting 43 percent over his last five games. Over his last four games, his field goal percentage jumps to 53 percent, so look at him as one of the hotter shooting perimeter centers in the league right now. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:28 pm
  • Cody Zeller goes for 13 & 8 in loss to Boston
    Cody Zeller hit 5-of-7 shots and 3-of-4 free throws for 13 points, eight rebounds, two assists and a block in Monday's 108-98 loss to the Celtics.

    Advice: Five of his rebounds were offensive, which was nice, and he played 31 minutes in the start. He had a 16 & 10 double-double on Friday and played well again tonight, meaning he should be owned in most leagues now that he's healthy and starting at center again for the Hornets. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:59 pm
  • Kevin Love (back) will not return Monday
    Kevin Love (back) will not return for the second half of Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: He is dealing with lower back soreness, but the lopsided score probably has a lot to do with their decision to hold him out -- the Warriors are up by 29 points at halftime. Kyle Korver started the second half in Love's place, but we should see more minutes from Channing Frye as well. Love finished with three points on 1-of-6 shooting with three rebounds and one assist. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:28 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo scores season-high 15 points
    Bismack Biyombo took a nasty spill on Monday in Orlando's loss to Denver, but still managed to surprisingly score a season-high 15 points (on 7-of-9 shooting) and grab nine rebounds in 20 minutes of action.

    Advice: Biyombo had not scored more than 10 points since early December, so this was offensive outburst wasn't expected, especially after a scary fall in which it appeared his leg bent the wrong way. Nonetheless, Orlando has shifted towards a small-ball approach, which has capped Biz's fantasy upside significantly. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:24 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic scores 17 in 28 minutes
    Nikola Vucevic scored 17 points with four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in 28 minutes on Monday in Denver.

    Advice: Vooch has scored at least 15 points in each of Orlando's last five games and is averaging 19.4 points (on 55.7 percent shooting), 8.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.2 steals over that five-game stretch. His stock is trending upwards and his appears to be poised for a solid second half of the season now that his role in the offense is secure. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:15 pm
  • Alex Len will start on Monday vs. the Jazz
    Alex Len will draw the start on Monday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Tyson Chandler (illness) has been ruled out, so Len will see a healthy dose of minutes if he can stay out of foul trouble. It's not clear who will back up Len, but Alan Williams would make the most sense given the Jazz's size up front. Len looks like a nice short-term pickup and he could have solid value later in the season if the Suns deal Chandler. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:09 pm
  • Faried scores 20 points in season-high 33 min
    Kenneth Faried started at power forward in Denver's win over the Magic and finished with 20 points (on 10-of-12 shooting), five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block in a season-high 33 minutes.

    Advice: Faried replaced Wilson Chandler in the starting lineup on Monday and rewarded coach Mike Malone's decision. It's just the third time this season Faried has cracked the 20-point plateau, and the first time he's played more than 30 minutes. Darrell Arthur (knee) didn't play, which opened up some extra time for Faried. It was Faried's first start since December 12th, so it will be interesting to see if Malone decides to go back to Chandler or stick with The Manimal in Denver's next game on Tuesday vs. the Lakers Rotoworld.com Today, 4:59 pm
  • Greg Monroe scores 14 in 21 minutes
    Greg Monroe scored 14 points on 6-of-13 shooting in Monday's loss to the 76ers.

    Advice: "Moose" only played 21 minutes in this one, as the Bucks opted to roll with John Henson for his defense against Joel Embiid. Monroe was still productive with six rebounds, two assists and one steal, but his owners can expect a stronger performance and larger workload on Wednesday vs. Houston. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:53 pm
  • John Henson plays 26 minutes in loss
    John Henson played 26 minutes on Monday vs. the 76ers, scoring eight points on 3-of-8 shooting.

    Advice: The Bucks needed his defense against the one they call The Process, so he reached 26 minutes for the just the second time in over a month. Henson did a respectable job and grabbed five rebounds with four assists and two blocks, but we'll need to see him do this a couple times in a row before recommending an add in standard leagues. Greg Monroe still looks like the center you want to own. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:49 pm
  • Anthony Davis (hip, thumb) doubtful to return
    Anthony Davis (right hip, left thumb) is doubtful to return to Monday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: The good news here is that the X-rays taken on his thumb and hip both came back negative, so it appears AD has avoided a serious injury. He was barely able to walk to the locker room, so it would be quite shocking to see him return to the game today. He'll end his evening with 16 points, three rebounds and three assists. Terrence Jones is going to be the primary beneficiary if Davis is forced to miss any additional time, so he's a solid pickup in any setting. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:12 pm
  • Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play Monday
    Tyler Zeller (illness) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Hornets.

    Advice: Zeller is finally feeling better, but Monday will mark his eighth straight game on the sidelines due to this illness. We'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks, but with the main guys in Boston's frontcourt healthy, Zeller won't have any fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:04 pm
  • Olynyk, Bradley will play Monday vs. Hornets
    Kelly Olynyk (ankle) and Avery Bradley (Achilles) will play Monday vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Olynyk got tripped up by a ball boy during Sunday's practice and rolled his ankle, but luckily the ankle tweak won't force him to spend any time on the sidelines. Bradley is likely going to start tonight, which will send Marcus Smart back to the bench. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:57 pm
  • Anthony Davis (back) heads to the locker room
    Anthony Davis (tailbone) is headed to the locker room.

    Advice: Davis tried to posterize Myles Turner on a dunk attempt, but Turner did not let that happen, and Davis hit the floor hard. He was writhing in pain on the ground for roughly a minute, and while he stayed in the game to knock down his free throws, he went straight back to the locker room after knocking them down. Davis was barely able to walk on his way back to the locker room, so it seems unlikely he'll be able to return to this one. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:38 pm
  • Paul Millsap scores 17 in full line
    Paul Millsap scored 17 points during a big 108-107 win over the Knicks on Monday, adding seven rebounds, six assists, three steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He had a game-sealing block of Derrick Rose to get this win. Millsap didn't shoot the ball well in this game, making just 5-of-18 from the field and 6-of-10 from the line in 39 minutes. Dwight Howard (rest) did not play, which has been a helpful scenario for Millsap all season. The Hawks are also winning games and have gone 9-1 in their last 10, so maybe he stays put. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:43 pm
  • Faried starting, Chandler headed to the bench
    Kenneth Faried will move into the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Magic, sending Wilson Chandler to the bench.

    Advice: This move is likely a matchup-based decision with Orlando going with a more traditional frontcourt, so Chandler could be back in the starting five as soon as Tuesday's game against the Lakers. In 15 starts this season, Faried owns averages of 9.8 points, 8.4 boards, 1.0 steal and 1.1 blocks per contest in 22.5 minutes, so him running with the first unit won't result in a major uptick in value. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:28 pm
  • Enes Kanter listed as probable starter Monday
    Enes Kanter is being listed as the probable starter for Monday's game against the Clippers.

    Advice: This report is coming from the game notes, which are notoriously unreliable, but with Steven Adams (concussion) set to sit this one out Kanter moving into the starting five does make sense. Even if Kanter doesn't start, he's sure to see a solid uptick in minutes, and per-36-minutes this season he owns averages of 24.2 points, 11.2 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.2 blocks per game. He's in for a big night sans Adams and makes for an intriguing DFS target.Daily Slant: Kanter is going to be an across-the-board play tonight as his minutes should trend closer to 33-35 as opposed to the 25-30 we're typically accustomed to seeing from him. We may not see him perform at his typical 1.14 FP per minute mark - he'll be seeing more court time with the starters - but he's the only offensive threat the Thunder have in the front-court. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:14 pm
  • Joakim Noah scores seven points in loss
    Joakim Noah scored seven points with 17 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 33 minutes against the Hawks on Monday.

    Advice: This comes on the second half of a back-to-back set, which is way more playing time than he's played previously with 21.8 minutes per game on no rest. Noah will likely see a dip in playing time at some point for a number of reasons, so he's only worth a look in 14-team leagues with his recent solid play. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:06 pm
  • Nerlens Noel (ankle) out Monday vs. MIL
    Nerlens Noel (sprained left ankle) will not play Monday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: He did sprain it on Saturday and was able to return, so for now we'll be considering him questionable for Wednesday's game against Toronto. With Noel on the sidelines, Jahlil Okafor will serve as Joel Embiid's primary backup, but he'll likely be working with a 20-minute workload making him an unattractive target in most settings. Noel should remain owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:30 pm
  • Steven Adams (concussion) out Monday vs. LAC
    Steven Adams has been diagnosed with a concussion and he will not play Monday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Adams won't be able to return until he clears the league-mandated concussion protocol testing, and whether or not Enes Kanter moves into the starting five, he's sure to be flirting with minutes in the 30s so he could have a huge game tonight. For now, we'll be considering Adams questionable for Wednesday's game in Golden State. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:58 am
  • Reed (bruised sternum) probable Tuesday
    Willie Reed (bruised sternum) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Reed only plays minutes in the teens while Hassan Whiteside is healthy, but this does have a couple fantast implications. Luke Babbitt's minutes will take a hit with Reed back in the rotation and James Johnson won't have to spend a lot of time as the backup center. Reed is just a handcuff for Whiteside's owners in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:58 am
  • Ed Davis (sprained ankle) will play Monday
    Ed Davis (sprained left ankle) is available to play on Monday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: He was considered questionable, but he said his ankle felt fine after warmups. Davis has played 21 or less minutes in three straight games, so he shouldn't be in many fantasy lineups. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:41 am
  • Andre Drummond hits rare 3-pointer Sunday
    Andre Drummond briefly exited Sunday's game with a right leg injury, but he returned to finish with 15 points, 17 rebounds, two assists, three steals and one block in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Drummond appeared to injure the knee or lower part of his right leg, but he was no worse the wear after returning and we'll leave him off the injury report. He wasn't very efficient tonight, hitting 6-of-17 FGs and 2-of-5 FTs, but he managed to sink a 3-pointer for the second time this season and fifth time in his career. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Steven Adams scores six points, exits game
    Steven Adams (head) scored six points with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 19 minutes against the Kings on Sunday.

    Advice: Adams left the game after hitting his head on the floor and never returned, as he was being evaluated for a concussion. The Thunder play against the Clippers on Monday, so if Adams did indeed suffer a concussion, he will almost certainly miss that contest. If that is the case, Enes Kanter will see a boost and becomes an enticing DFS value play. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Enes Kanter scores season-high 29 points
    Enes Kanter scored a season-high 29 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in Sunday’s 122-118 victory over the Kings.

    Advice: Kanter recorded his 12th double-double of the season tonight and his fourth in the last six games. He finished one rebound short of tying his season-high. Steven Adams (head) left tonight’s game after hitting his head on the floor and was being evaluated for a concussion. If he misses any time, Kanter will see a boost. He faces the Clippers on Monday, a team he is averaging 23.3 minutes, 14 points, 10.3 rebounds, and one steal against this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Robin Lopez logs 37 minutes vs. Grizzlies
    Robin Lopez had another strong game on Sunday with 12 points, seven boards, two assists and three blocks in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Lopez helped his team earn a tough 108-104 win in Memphis. The Bulls scored a season-low 14 points in the first quarter tonight, but they recovered with a season-high 38 points in the second quarter. The Jekyll and Hyde performance didn't continue in the second half, during which they scored 56 points, and the Bulls' win leaves them just ahead of Charlotte for the No. 8 seed. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins double-doubles vs. Thunder
    DeMarcus Cousins hit 8-of-20 shots for 31 points with 11 rebounds, seven assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer on Sunday against the Thunder.

    Advice: The big man has shown his passing abilities more often this season, averaging a career-high 4.1 assists per game. He has dished out at least five dimes in 10 of his last 11 games and has flirted with a triple-double several times during that stretch. Tonight’s double-double, marked his fifth consecutive one. Fantasy owners should be content with his production this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Andre Drummond exits w/ right leg injury
    Andre Drummond exited Sunday's game with an apparent right leg/knee injury, but he has since returned to the Pistons' bench.

    Advice: Drummond exited early in the third quarter and had a limp as he walked into the locker room, so we'll consider him questionable to return. Aron Baynes and Boban Marjanovic would gain the most if Drummond misses any time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:03 pm
  • Steven Adams exits game vs. Kings
    Steven Adams (head) will not return to Sunday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: He is being evaluated for concussion-like symptoms and will miss the remainder of tonight's game. Enes Kanter will move into the starting lineup and see a boost in production, if Adams misses any time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:52 pm
  • Ed Davis (ankle) questionable Monday vs. WAS
    Ed Davis (sprained left ankle) is a game-time call on Monday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: It's unclear exactly when Davis suffered this injury, but we should have a better idea on his status following Monday morning's shootaround. If he's out, Meyers Leonard would have the opportunity for some extended minutes off the bench, but he's too inconsistent to rely upon in standard settings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:50 pm
  • Stevens says Zeller (illness) feeling better
    Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said that Tyler Zeller (illness) is feeling a lot better and getting closer to a return.

    Advice: The illness has forced Zeller to spend the past seven straight games on the sidelines, but it sounds like there's a chance he'll be able to return to action Monday vs. the Hornets. He'll likely be eased back into things, but he's not a significant part of the rotation anyway, so his return to action will have a negligible impact in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:46 am
  • Kelly Olynyk (ankle) doesn't practice Sunday
    Kelly Olynyk rolled his right ankle when he was tripped up by a ball boy while going through some shooting drills on Sunday, and he was unable to participate in the remainder of the practice.

    Advice: At the moment, It's unclear how severe this ankle injury is, but for now we'll have to consider Olynyk questionable for Monday's game against the Hornets. If he's out, his playing time will be divvied up between Jonas Jerebko and Amir Johnson. Check back for another update following Monday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:19 am
  • Willie Reed (sternum) limited at practice Sun
    Willie Reed (bruised sternum) was a limited participant during Sunday's practice.

    Advice: "During the non-contact part, there was some soreness," Reed said. "All in all, I’m fine. We’re just going to see how it feels when you take a blow to it. That’s the biggest key." With Reed on the sidelines, James Johnson has been forced into heavy minutes, earning some run at the five-spot in small ball lineups when Hassan Whiteside goes to the bench. Reed isn't worth a roster spot anywhere. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:14 am
  • Rudy Gobert grabs season-high 19 rebounds
    Rudy Gobert scored 19 points with a season-high 19 rebounds, two assists and two blocks on Saturday against the Magic.

    Advice: This was his 27th consecutive game with double-digit rebounds and he now has five double-doubles in the month of January. Gobert continues to have a great season, averaging career highs with 12.1 points, 12.3 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks per game, as well as a 65.8 field goal percentage. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:24 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic scores 15 points in 32 mins
    Nikola Vucevic played 32 minutes, scoring 15 points with eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in Saturday’s loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: Despite the tough matchup, Vuc was able to put together a nice performance. He continues to play significant minutes, playing 32 minutes in three consecutive games. In the month of January, he is averaging 30.1 minutes, 16.4 points, 9.9 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.1 steals per game. Orlando’s new approach on offense has not affected Vucevic in a negative way whatsoever. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:05 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo plays 15 minutes vs. Jazz
    Bismack Biyombo missed all of his field goal attempts, scoring four points on 4-of-4 free throws, with four rebounds and one block in 15 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: It is very clear that going big is not an option for the Magic, as it has been an inefficient strategy. Plus, this is one of the best matchup for it, so it looks even worse for Biz. This has been a rough month for Biyombo, who averaged 20.1 minutes, 4.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in January heading into this game. With Orlando going smaller, Biyombo appears to be the odd man out for the Magic and is a drop candidate unless you're in dire strait for blocks. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:41 pm
  • Nerlens Noel gets into some foul trouble
    Nerlens Noel was in some foul trouble against the Wizards on Saturday, finishing with six points, 12 rebounds and three turnovers in 13 minutes.

    Advice: He also sprained his left ankle and did return after he was re-taped. Obviously this was a letdown with Joel Embiid (rest) not playing, but it's not likely to affect his playing time because the 76ers won five of their last six, assuming he's healthy. He should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:45 pm
  • Robin Lopez scores six points with 10 boards
    Robin Lopez played 27 minutes with six points, 10 rebounds, three assists and two blocks against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: The Bulls absolutely dominated on the glass. Lopez had nine of the 21 offensive boards and the Bulls had a 21-board advantage overall. We've seen Ro-Lo lose some late minutes to Cris Felicio and that happened again, but this was a very encouraging game. He gets another great matchup for minutes against the Grizzles on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:38 pm
  • Anthony Davis scores 36 points in return
    Anthony Davis scored 36 points in his return to the lineup during a 107-99 loss to the Bulls on Saturday, adding 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 39 minutes.

    Advice: After missing one game due to a hip contusion, Davis had some protective padding in this game. After maybe some rust early, Davis went off in the second half with 23 points and nine boards in 21 minutes. He gets a great matchup in Indiana on Monday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:27 pm
  • DeAndre Jordan drops 24 & 21 with 9 dunks
    DeAndre Jordan put on a dunking highlight reel against the Lakers on Saturday, making 12-of-13 from the field for 24 points with 21 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 35 minutes.

    Advice: If you liked dunks, this was the game for you. DJ dunked the ball an incredible nine times in this win with several beautiful lobs from Chris Paul. This was Jordan's seventh game with a 20/20 as a Clipper, which ties Elton Brand for the most in franchise history. It was also his 37th 20-plus board game to pass Kevin Garnett for the ninth most since 1983-84. He has the lob and rebounding things down pat. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:34 pm
  • Anthony Davis will play, has no restriction
    Anthony Davis (hip) will play on Saturday and does not have a minutes restriction.

    Advice: He did some work on Friday and said there was a "high probability" he would play today, so he should be all set. Davis absolutely exploded before his hip injury in the third quarter on Tuesday, scoring 40 points with 18 boards in the partial game. He makes sense on a light DFS night. Meanwhile, we'll see who starts next to him, but Terrence Jones is still worth owning for now. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:36 pm
  • Noel playing well with Sixers second unit
    Nerlens Noel has found his groove as a key contributor on the Sixers consistent and productive second unit.

    Advice: Over the Sixers last seven games, Noel is averaging 10.1 points (on 63.3 percent shooting), 4.3 rebounds, 1.4 steals, 1.1 blocks and 0.6 turnovers. The combo of Noel backing Joel Embiid has worked well for Philly, who have won five of their last six games. The loser in the scenario is Jahlil Okafor, who continues to be slapped with DNP-CD's. Noel has made his case as 'roster worthy' in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:40 am
  • Joakim Noah playing his best ball of season
    Joakim Noah has been hampered by a sore shoulder over the last 10 days, but is still playing his best basketball of the season.

    Advice: In the 11 games the Knicks have played since Christmas, Noah is averaging 11.1 rebounds and 8.0 points (on 57.4 percent shooting). And despite dealing with a nagging shoulder issue, Noah feels there is still plenty of room left for improvement. "I feel like I can still do better," Noah said. "I feel like there’s another level that I want to get to and have to keep pushing and getting better." Noah will likely see more minutes if Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) continues to miss time. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:59 am
  • Vucevic to be used exclusively at center
    Coach Frank Vogel has confirmed that he will use Nikola Vucevic exclusively at center going forward.

    Advice: Vogel also said that Serge Ibaka will see minutes as the back-up center, which will mean more minutes for Jeff Green at the four. The early returns on Vogel's change in approach have been promising, as Vucevic scored a season-high 30 points in the Magic's win on Friday. The odd man out in the new situation is Bismack Biyombo, who played only 16 minutes on Friday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:13 am
  • DeMarcus Cousins hands out 11 assists
    DeMarcus Cousins handed out a season-high 11 assists during a 120-108 loss to the Cavs on Friday, adding 26 points with eight rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

    Advice: The Kings are not playing well again and are sitting in the No. 9 spot with the Pelicans and Nuggets only 0.5 games behind them. As for Cousins, his passing has been a trend lately, averaging 6.7 per game over his last seven. His scoring is slightly down with just 23.1 points per game in that span, but he'll be closer to 30 in no time. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:58 pm
  • Andre Drummond grabs 19 rebounds in loss
    Andre Drummond scored nine points on 3-of-7 shooting with 19 rebounds, one assist and one steal vs. the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: He was held to single-digit points for just the second time in his last 12 games, but that's what happens when you go up against the Stifle Tower (Rudy Gobert). Look for him to bounce back in a dream matchup with the Lakers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:40 pm
  • Al Horford scores 10 points
    Al Horford scored 10 points with six rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: In his return to Atlanta, Horford had plenty of boos to start the game. The crowd did give him a standing ovation after his video tribute, though. While Horford's numbers are down, he's done a fine job hitting treys with 2.2 per game over his last five. Expect him to heat up in no time. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:06 pm
  • Kelly Olynyk gets hot, scores 26 points
    Kelly Olynyk was on fire against the Hawks on Friday, making 9-of-11 from the field for a season-high 26 points with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He started the third quarter with coach Brad Stevens going with the hot hand after KO scored 18 in the first half. On top of that 100.0 effective field goal percentage, Olynyk's defense was very good on the low block to help Horford. Coach Brad Stevens lives on the hot hand, so Olynyk is going to be up and down. He's only worth an add if he was on your short list before this gem. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:03 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic scores season-high 30 points
    Nikola Vucevic scored a season-high 30 points in Friday's win over the Blazers.

    Advice: He likes this starting thing and coach Frank Vogel confirmed this week that he will stick with him in the first unit going forward. Vucevic played 32 minutes and hit 13-of-18 shots with 10 rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks. He's trending in the right direction and should see a healthy workload on Saturday vs. Rudy Gobert and the Jazz. Bismack Biyombo only played 16 minutes and had two points, five rebounds and two turnovers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:51 pm
  • Paul Millsap scores 23 in full line
    Paul Millsap scored 23 points in 40 minutes during a tough 103-101 loss to the Celtics on Friday, adding five rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: The Hawks reportedly told Millsap he's off the block, which is fantastic news for his fantasy value. He's also turned into that stat-stuffing monster we've grown accustom to love, averaging 17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.0 blocks, 2.0 steals and 0.8 treys in his last five. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:50 pm
  • Enes Kanter scores 20 points vs. MIN
    Enes Kanter played 30 minutes against the Wolves on Friday with 20 points, eight rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: This was a wonderful spot for him with the Wolves running a lot of their action through their big man, so he wasn't going to be exploited on PNR. Kanter has actually seen a very consistent allotment of minutes with at least 28 in each of his last three. He's also been terrific in January, averaging 15.3 points, 9.3 boards, 1.5 assists and 0.5 steals in his previous games. This is probably close to his peak value on the year, but he's turning in mid-round value in his last 10. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:38 pm
  • Greg Monroe double-doubles vs. Heat
    Greg Monroe double-doubled vs. the Heat on Friday with 16 points and 11 rebounds.

    Advice: He only hit 5-of-13 shots, but hit all six of his free throws with one turnover in 25 minutes. "[Monroe] has been playing at a very high level for us, being that star off the bench that we need," head coach Jason Kidd said. "He’s being a leader with that group." Monroe said that he's not thinking about his $17.8 million player option for the 2017-18 season, but it's one of the reasons why his name has been tossed around in trade rumors. With the way he's been playing lately, the Bucks may want to hold onto him. He's the center fantasy owners want to own in Milwaukee. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:19 pm
  • Nerlens Noel blocks four in 20 minutes
    Nerlens Noel blocked a season-high four shots against the Hornets on Friday, adding six points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes.

    Advice: His jumper has actually been a story this season with another made J at the top of the key during this one. Noel is running the floor really well and his defense hasn't been too much of a drop off from Joel Embiid -- Jahlil Okafor's certainly was. As long as Embiid is limited to 28 minutes, Noel should have minutes close to 20, which should be enough value to use in standard leagues. There could be more minutes for Noel on Saturday with Embiid out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:55 pm
  • Cody Zeller double-doubles in 36 minutes
    Cody Zeller scored 16 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and three turnovers in 36 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: Roy Hibbert is basically toast and the Hornets don't trust Spencer Hawes for consistent minutes, so Zeller looks like he's set for a big role. If you take injuries out of the equation, he's played 33-plus minutes in his last three full games. He is worth a pickup in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:41 pm
  • Kelly Olynyk starts 2nd half for Johnson
    Kelly Olynyk started the second half in place of Amir Johnson on Friday vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: Olynyk was rolling in the first half with 18 points and four treys, so coach Brad Stevens is going to go with the hot hand in the second half. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:27 pm
  • Cody Zeller will start without restriction
    Cody Zeller (illness) will start without a restriction on Friday against the 76ers.

    Advice: He will get a heavy dose of The Process, so he may still look sick in this game. Zeller was playing well before his illness and was turning in late-round value, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:47 pm
  • Anthony Davis has 'high probability' to play
    Anthony Davis (hip) said there is a "high probability" that he will play Saturday against the Bulls.

    Advice: "I feel better. I was able to do some movements today," Davis said. "Able to go through practice. Of course it wasn’t that much [in terms of strenuous activity], but I feel a lot better." Based on the quote, he's not all the way back and we still have to see how he feels tomorrow. If Davis does return, it'll be interesting to see if coach Alvin Gentry goes with more Terrence Jones, who should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:45 pm
  • Willie Reed (sternum) will not play Friday
    Willie Reed (bruised sternum) will not play in Friday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Reed is averaging 11.9 minutes in non-starts this season, backing up Hassan Whiteside. The Heat don't have another true center on the roster. With Reed not available on Friday, Udonis Haslem may see more minutes behind Whiteside. The more intriguing outcome, from a fantasy perspective, would be Miami playing small-ball, with James Johnson seeing additional minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:46 am
  • Joakim Noah dealing with a sore shoulder
    Joakim Noah is dealing with discomfort in his sore right shoulder.

    Advice: Noah has been wincing in pain on occasions during games and often has his shoulder wrapped in ice when he's on the bench. "He’s had it looked at," coach Jeff Hornacek said. "There’s just some little stuff in there. When he lifts his arm in one certain way he feels it catch." Asked about his shoulder, Noah said, "It’s fine." Although his offensive output has been frustratingly inconsistent, Noah is averaging 11.1 rebounds over the Knicks last 11 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:55 am
  • Noel 'definitely satisfied' w/ role on Sixers
    Nerlens Noel has settled into his role as Joel Embiid's primary backup, and has played his best basketball of the season.

    Advice: "At this moment in time, I'm definitely satisfied with where I'm at and the team's rotation," Noel said. Over the Sixers last six games, Noel is averaging 10.8 points (on 60 percent shooting) 4.6 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 20.5 minutes. Meanwhile, Jahlil Okafor has been a DNP-CD in four of the Sixers last five contests. Noel possesses intriguing, especially considering the Sixers are actively trying to trade a big man to clear up the logjam in the frontcourt. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:27 am
  • Kenneth Faried returned to action on Thursday January 12. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:37 am
  • Alex Len scores seven points in loss
    Alex Len scored seven points with three rebounds and one block in 10 minutes against the Mavericks on Thursday.

    Advice: Len was listed as questionable heading into this game, but ended up playing. He is now averaging 13.8 minutes, 8.4 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks per game in January. He has displayed his upside in some instances this season, but the lack of playing time has kept his ceiling capped. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:09 pm
  • Joakim Noah double-doubles vs. Bulls
    Joakim Noah scored 12 points with 15 rebounds, one assist and one block in 27 minutes on Thursday night against Chicago.

    Advice: Noah came out to play vs. his former team, finishing one rebound shy of tying his season high of 16 boards in a game. He is playing through a sore shoulder, but it did not appear to be affecting him in tonight’s matchup. His minutes are inconsistent, but Noah is a good source of rebounds and can help fantasy owners who are struggling in that category. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:59 pm
  • Alex Len is playing on Thursday
    Alex Len checked in on Thursday night in the first quarter.

    Advice: Never trust the game notes. After being listed as questionable, Len should be fine. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:32 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic will stick in starting unit
    Nikola Vucevic will remain in the starting lineup for Friday against the Blazers.

    Advice: Coach Frank Vogel said he wants to look at some smaller lineups -- say what? Whatever happens, Vucevic should be able to get minutes in the low 30s and shouldn't be affected by the rotation tweak. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:19 pm
  • Anthony Davis (hip) will not play on Thursday
    Anthony Davis (hip) will not play on Thursday against the Nets.

    Advice: After Kyle O'Quinn fouled AD and sent him into the stands, Davis has been dealing with some soreness since then. This doesn't sound like a serious injury for Davis and he could play Saturday against the Bulls. With him out, coach Alvin Gentry should be rolling with Terrence Jones in the starting lineup or could use Donatas Motiejunas. TJ will be a popular DFS play while we should see more Solomon Hill, Dante Cunningham and perhaps some of the centers. Maybe we'll see some Cheick Diallo. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:39 pm
  • Kenneth Faried scores 15 points vs. Indiana
    Kenneth Faried scored 15 points with nine rebounds, one block, one steal and two turnovers in just 16 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: All six of his makes were at the rim and his four offensive boards led to five points for him. Faried is in a bit of a position battle for Jusuf Nurkic for the backup five spot with Faried about a third of his minutes at the four today. He could be worth owning due to a trade possibly helping him out, but there will be several bad games with an unclear role. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:34 pm
  • Willie Reed (sternum) questionable for Friday
    Willie Reed (bruised sternum) is questionable for Friday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: He did not practice and was in sweats for the session on Thursday. Reed has been in the rotation as a straight backup to Hassan Whiteside, but likely won't play more than 15 minutes most nights. If he's out, Udonis Haslem could be next man up or the Heat could use James Johnson at the five more. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:29 pm
  • Alex Len (right hip) listed as questionable
    Alex Len (right hip contusion) is listed as questionable in the game notes for Thursday against the Mavs.

    Advice: This is a weird one. Len had a right hip contusion last month and has looked fine since. If for some reason he can't play, Alan Williams could be in the rotation tonight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:05 pm
  • Kenneth Faried (illness) will play
    Kenneth Faried (illness) is available to play against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: He missed practice on Wednesday and it's unclear when he started getting sick. The Nuggets did post some pictures of Faried around town in London, so his illness doesn't sound too bad. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:41 am
  • Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play Friday
    Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play on Friday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: He's not even traveling with the team and can't seem to shake this illness. Luckily for the Celtics, Amir Johnson (ankle) could return against the Hawks. Zeller was not in the rotation before the illness, so this doesn't have any fantasy implications. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:07 am
  • Cody Zeller (illness) returns to practice
    Cody Zeller (illness) returned to practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Assuming he feels fine in the morning, Zeller should be good to go for Friday's game vs. Philly. He's averaging 10.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 blocks per game this season, so he's just a low-end asset in standard leagues. Roy Hibbert will head back to the bench, while Spencer Hawes will no longer be a viable punt play in DFS. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:26 am
  • Kenneth Faried (illness) now expected to play
    Kenneth Faried (illness) is now expected to play on Thursday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He was originally considered questionable after missing Wednesday's practice. With Nikola Jokic returning from an illness, the Nuggets will have to decide whether Faried or Jusuf Nurkic gets the backup center minutes Thursday. However, Darrell Arthur (leg) and Wilson Chandler (illness) are questionable, so their absence could open up some more minutes. Faried is on the trading block and really needs a move in order to have value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:30 am
  • DeAndre Jordan grabs 20 boards in home win
    DeAndre Jordan helped the Clippers earn their fifth straight victory on Wednesday, racking up 20 rebounds to go along with 10 points, three blocks, two steals and one assist.

    Advice: Jordan has been getting tips from Kevin Garnett, who is serving as a Clippers' team consultant. "Any pointers he can give me and tips are great," Jordan said. "I just want to be a student whenever he’s here." Jordan already has an NBA-leading six games with 20+ boards this season, and tonight's game moved him past Shaq into a tie for the ninth-most 20+ rebound games in NBA history. He's tied with none other than Kevin Garnett. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:27 pm
  • Marreese Speights scores 13 efficient points
    Marreese Speights scored 13 efficient points off the bench on Wednesday, hitting 5-of-6 shots with three 3-pointers, three rebounds and one assist in a home win vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Speights has made at least one three-pointer in 14 straight games, the longest streak of his career. He's managed to carve out late-round value in Blake Griffin's absence despite playing just 16.9 minutes over the past month. During that time he's established a nice rapport with Chris Paul -- coming into this game, Speights had a 72.7 effective FG percentage off passes from CP3. That said, he's an atypical fantasy big man whose primary virtues have been 3-pointers and FT%. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:25 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo logs 16 minutes off bench
    Bismack Biyombo came off Orlando's bench on Wednesday with four points, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 16 minutes.

    Advice: The Magic offense wasn't a big issue tonight, but their usually stalwart defense wasn't up to the task in the 105-96 road loss (103.6 defensive rating). Biyombo has been a poor fantasy option all season, helping owners with boards and blocks, while dragging them down almost everywhere else. It doesn't matter much whether he's starting or coming off the bench. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:01 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic has 16 & 12 in start Wednesday
    Nikola Vucevic returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday, where he posted 16 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 12 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 32 minutes of action.

    Advice: Vucevic's owners should temper their excitement, because this could easily be a temporary move to compensate for the absence of Serge Ibaka (shoulder). Ibaka hopes to return on Friday, but even if he heads back to the bench there's reason for cautious optimism -- Vuc logged at least 30 minutes in three of his previous five games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:52 pm
  • Kevin Love scores 17 points in loss
    Kevin Love made 5-of-15 from the field for 17 points with eight rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He gave everyone a quick scare when he went to the locker room due to a left leg injury. He was only in the locker room for about a minute before he went on a bike, which he does quite often. Love has shaken his durability concerns from earlier in his career, but there's always a chance he gets a night off on the road. The Cavs don't have a road game in a back-to-back until Jan. 29. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:05 pm
  • Steven Adams scores 12 in 39 minutes
    Steven Adams scored 12 points with eight rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 39 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Thunder went with the big lineup with Adams and Enes Kanter for 21 minutes tonight and it worked with a +24.9 net rating. It's also been successful all season with a +13.2 net rating in 260 total minutes. As for Adams himself, his minutes are on the rise with 34 per game in January. He's a solid mid-round player in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:56 pm
  • Enes Kanter scores 19 with 13 boards
    Enes Kanter made 8-of-18 from the field for 19 points with 13 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 30 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's played really well and hit 30 minutes for just the third time this season and also had his third double-double in his last four. This was a terrific spot for him with how the Grizzlies go big as much as any team in the Western Conference. He'll be in a favorable spot once again on Friday against the Wolves. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:46 pm
  • Kevin Love returns to the game vs. Blazers
    Kevin Love returned to the game on Wednesday in the second quarter.

    Advice: He didn't go into the locker room for very long, so we're expecting him to be fine. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:22 pm
  • Al Horford fills it up in win vs. Washington
    Al Horford filled up the boxscore vs. Washington, notching 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting with nine rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: Horford turned the ball over just twice in 33 minutes, and tonight's line was a nice return to form -- in Boston's past six games, he was shooting just 43.2 percent from the field with 0.5 steals. The occasional slump is balanced out by hot streaks, and at the end of the day he's an early-round value. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:20 pm
  • Kevin Love (left leg) to the locker room
    Kevin Love (left leg) went to the locker room at the end of the first quarter on Wednesday.

    Advice: He stepped on Al-Farouq Aminu's foot and looked to grab his left calf. Love was down for about two minutes before he went to the bench for about 45 seconds. He didn't have much of a limp and returned from the locker room to ride a bike. This seems minor for now. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:09 pm
  • Nerlens Noel gets 13 points, eight rebounds
    Nerlens Noel put together a nice game on Wednesday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-8 FGs and 3-of-4 FTs with eight rebounds, two steals and one assist.

    Advice: It's a strong return for fantasy owners since Noel played just 21 minutes tonight. Interestingly, he knocked down two jumpers at the top of the key tonight and is now a combined 7-of-10 on shots 15-24 feet from the hoop this season. Regardless of his shot locations, Noel is a promising guy to own with Jahlil Okafor racking up DNPs and the Sixers likely to trade away one of their young centers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:17 pm
  • Joakim Noah logs 20 minutes vs. Philly
    Joakim Noah finished Wednesday's game with seven points (3-of-6 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs), six rebounds, two steals, one block and zero turnovers in 20 minutes of action.

    Advice: Noah had a wrap on his right shoulder when he wasn't playing, and admitted recently that the surgically-repaired shoulder is "always there" as a background concern. The slumping Knicks recently held a team meeting to discuss their issues, and they may need to meet a few more times after tonight's disastrous 98-97 loss to the Sixers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:06 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo moving to the bench
    Bismack Biyombo will move to the bench against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: It is likely only because of Serge Ibaka (shoulder) not playing and the starting unit needing more offense with Nikola Vucevic. Biyombo actually gains value because he should play huge minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:56 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic starting, Biyombo to bench
    Nikola Vucevic will start vs. the Clippers on Wednesday, sending Bismack Biyombo to the bench.

    Advice: Serge Ibaka (shoulder) is out tonight and coach Frank Vogel may just be trying to get more offense in the starting lineup. Ibaka is aiming to return on Friday, so this could be a one-off start for Vuc, but either way it's a positive development for his fantasy owners. Check back after the game to see how the rotation shakes out. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:55 pm
  • Tyler Zeller will not play on Wednesday
    Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play on Wednesday against the Wizards.

    Advice: The Celtics are going to be a little short on their depth up front. With Zeller and Amir Johnson (ankle) out, there should be plenty of minutes for Kelly Olynyk and Jonas Jerebko. We should see Jordan Mickey in the rotation and more small-ball lineups, too. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:13 pm
  • Anthony Davis (hip) questionable for Thursday
    Alvin Gentry would not commit to Anthony Davis (hip) being available for Thursday's game against the Nets.

    Advice: "He's sore. He'll get treatment, see how he feels tomorrow," said Gentry when asked about Davis. We should have another update following Thursday morning's shootaround, but if this injury does force Davis to the sidelines, Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas would see a major boost in value, with Jones offering a bit more upside. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:51 am
  • Report: DMC to sign massive extension w/ SAC
    DeMarcus Cousins reportedly intends to sign a massive extension with the Kings during the offseason.

    Advice: Kings management and Cousins have reportedly tossed around numbers, and the deal could be for as much as $207 million over a five-year period. To be clear, a deal won't be able to come to fruition until after July 1, 2017, and a lot could change between now and then, but the Kings front office has been adamant about their commitment to DMC as a franchise cornerstone ever since Vlade Divac took the reigns as GM. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:04 am
  • Kenneth Faried (illness) questionable vs. IND
    Kenneth Faried (illness) did not participate during Wednesday's practice and he is being deemed questionable for Thursday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: If Faried is forced to the sidelines on Thursday, Jusuf Nurkic and Darrell Arthur will split most of his minutes, but with Nikola Jokic (illness) being listed as probable, Nurkic and Arthur aren't all that appealing in most leagues. Owners can expect to get another update on Faried's status following Thursday morning's shootaround. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:47 am
  • DeMarcus Cousins scores 24 w/ four treys
    DeMarcus Cousins scored 24 points and helped the Kings snap a three-game losing streak with a 100-94 win over the Pistons on Tuesday.

    Advice: Boogie hit 8-of-14 shots from the field and 4-of-7 from the line, adding 13 rebounds, six assists, one block, one steal and four triples. He only played 30 minutes because of foul trouble, but he dominated in the fourth quarter. DeMarcus Cousins promised that he will make an R&B album if he's voted into the starting lineup of the All-Star game, so let's make sure that happens. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:34 pm
  • Andre Drummond blocks seven shots in loss
    Andre Drummond hit 4-of-5 shots and 1-of-6 free throws for nine points, 12 rebounds, three steals and a season-high seven blocks in Tuesday's 100-94 loss to the Kings.

    Advice: His previous season high was four blocks, so he nearly doubled that up tonight. He came in on fire, scoring 28 points with 14 rebounds in back-to-back games, and the seven swats helped make up for the lack of points tonight. He had also been shooting free throws pretty well in January, hitting 8-of-11 over his last four games, but couldn't get the freebies to drop tonight. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:34 pm
  • The Willie Reed party is over in Miami
    Willie Reed played just 11 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, going 1-of-4 with four points, four rebounds and a block.

    Advice: He was pretty fun to own while Hassan Whiteside missed four games with an eye injury, but the party is over, as Whiteside has been back for two games and had 28 points and 20 rebounds tonight. Feel free to handcuff Reed if you own Whiteside, but he should generally be dropped for a hot free agent now that Whiteside is back and killing it. But if Whiteside gets traded, Reed could suddenly have a lot of value again. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:10 pm
  • Kelly Olynyk playing well for Celtics
    Backup center Kelly Olynyk hit 6-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, four rebounds and a block in 25 minutes on Tuesday.

    Advice: Oly also had 12 points, four boards, four assists and two 3-pointers on Saturday, as Tyler Zeller continues to sit with an illness. Olynyk is far from being a must-own player, but with Zeller missing four straight games, Olynyk is worth keeping a close eye on right now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:15 pm
  • Cody Zeller, Batum out Tuesday vs. Houston
    Cody Zeller (illness) and Nicolas Batum (knee) have been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

    Advice: Roy Hibbert will be starting for Zeller tonight, but he'll likely just split the five-man minutes with Spencer Hawes, making him an unattractive option in most formats. Jeremy Lamb will get the start sans Batum, and Marco Belinelli should have the opportunity for some extended minutes off the bench. Flu season has been wreaking havoc on the NBA landscape this season, but with Charlotte off until Friday, Zeller should only be looking at a one-game absence here. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:16 pm
  • Kings have no plans to rest DeMarcus Cousins
    It appears the Kings have changed course and apparently do not intend to rest DeMarcus Cousins anytime soon.

    Advice: Coach Dave Joerger seemed to back away from the initial plan to rest DeMarcus Cousins. "Probably not," said Joerger when asked if resting Cousins was in the cards. DMC has played in all 37 games for Sacramento this season and is averaging a career-high 34.6 minutes. However, the Kings have reeled in minutes slightly of late, playing him less than 32 minutes in two of their last three games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:31 am
  • Cody Zeller (illness) doubtful for Tuesday
    Cody Zeller (illness) did not attend shootaround and is not expected to be available Tuesday night vs. Houston.

    Advice: Roy Hibbert would likely draw the start if Zeller is unable to play. Hibbert has started eight games this season but is averaging just 6.0 points and 3.1 rebounds in those eight contests. Spencer Hawes would also see an uptick in minutes, but it is difficult to trust either player from a fantasy perspective. Daily Slant: Even with Zeller not expected to play, targeting the Charlotte front-court is still a dangerous endeavor. Instead, look towards the value that opens up as a result of Nicolas Batum's absence. Jeremy Lamb should once again be thrust into fairly large minute totals - he was able to average about a FP per minute in 29 minutes against the Spurs despite shooting 33% from the field - making him an elite value target. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist's minutes also become more secure with Batum out of action. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:18 am
  • Anthony Davis (hip) says 'I'm good'
    Anthony Davis suffered a hip pointer in Monday's win, but X-rays came back negative and Davis downplayed the injury.

    Advice: Here's the full quote from Davis after the game: "I'm good. I have a bruised hip...going to try and get it right. I have a couple days before I play again so I'll get a lot of treatment." The Pelicans next game is Thursday in Brooklyn. We will have to wait for a formal update from the team regarding his status going forward. Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas would see major increases in minutes if Davis were to miss time. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:50 am
  • Steven Adams scores 20 points vs. Bulls
    Steven Adams went off for 20 points on 11-of-14 shooting in Monday's easy win over the Bulls.

    Advice: He torched Robin Lopez all night and added five rebounds, two assists and one block in 34 minutes. This was his fifth game with 20+ points this season, an impressive number when you consider that he failed to reach 20 points in his previous three seasons. Adams has a tough matchup with Memphis on Wednesday, a team that held him to six points on 1-of-9 shooting in their last meeting. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 8:09 pm
  • Enes Kanter scores 20 w/ 11 rebounds
    Enes Kanter scored 20 points with 11 rebounds in Monday's 109-94 win over the Bulls.

    Advice: He lit up the Bulls' frontcourt tonight, hitting 9-of-11 shots from the field with three assists and a steal in 28 minutes. Kanter is prone to duds just like we saw on Jan. 2 against the Bucks when he was held to two points, but he's been much more consistent lately and is averaging 17.8 points and 9.5 rebounds over his last four games. The Thunder will need his size against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, so he could be poised for another big game. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 7:51 pm
  • X-rays on Anthony Davis' hip are negative
    X-rays taken on Anthony Davis' left hip came back negative.

    Advice: The Pelicans are off until Thursday's game vs. the Nets and head coach Alvin Gentry is hopeful that Davis will be able to play. The big man is simply dealing with a bruise, but he had a noticeable limp and it's a little concerning that he needed X-rays in the first place. The Pelicans tend to be very careful with their franchise player, so he should be considered questionable for Thursday. Terrence Jones and Donatas Motiejunas should both be on your radar. Davis had a monster game vs. the Knicks before the injury, posting 40 points, 18 rebounds, two assists, three blocks and a triple. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 7:10 pm
  • Anthony Davis (hip) questionable to return
    Anthony Davis (left hip injury) is questionable to return to Monday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Kyle O'Quinn shoved Davis in the back during a layup attempt and Davis flew into the stands, injuring his hip in the process. Davis doesn't have a history with hip issues, and while he was able to take his free throws, he walked with a significant limp to the locker room. The Pelicans have built a comfortable lead, so we'd be shocked if Davis returned tonight. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 6:16 pm
  • Report: ATL no longer shopping Paul Millsap
    Atlanta GM Wes Wilcox has reportedly begun to inform teams that Paul Millsap is not for sale.

    Advice: Millsap publicly proclaimed that it would be his preference to remain in Atlanta, so the Hawks are probably feeling pretty confident that they'll be able to retain him as a free agent, thus having no need to unload him this season. Millsap is still adapting to playing alongside Dwight Howard, and he's only been a fourth-round guy on the year so far, but as the chemistry continues to build in Atlanta he should be able to flirt with top-20 status. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 2:04 pm
  • Cody Zeller (illness) questionable Tuesday
    Cody Zeller (illness) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

    Advice: It's flu season, and Zeller looks to be the latest victim. Owners can expect to get another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround, but if Zeller is forced to the sidelined, he's minutes would be divvied up between Roy Hibbert and Spencer Hawes with Hibbert likely moving into the starting five. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 12:17 pm
  • Joakim Noah says he's getting into a rhythm
    Joakim Noah said that he's finally finding his form in New York.

    Advice: "I feel like I'm playing better. I feel like I'm starting to get into a better rhythm," Noah said. "It's tough. This team is going through some adversity right now. This is when you find out who plays through it and who doesn't." Noah added that he feels healthy for the most part, but did say that his surgically-repaired shoulder is "always there." He's averaging 8.6 points, 11.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 0.8 blocks over his last five games, but his ceiling isn't as high with Kristaps Porzingis healthy again. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 8:17 am
  • Tyler Zeller (illness) listed as out Tuesday
    Tyler Zeller (illness) is listed as out for Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: He's expected to miss his fourth straight game. Zeller was out of the rotation before the illness, so his absence will not have a meaningful impact on the rotation. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 7:43 am
  • Vucevic isn't sure how to fix FT problems
    Nikola Vucevic said he's not sure how to get to the free throw line more often.

    Advice: "I think it’s hard to try to get fouled," Vucevic said. "It’s more of just being more aggressive, going at the rim with more force. I think that’s really it. Sometimes you can kind of draw fouls, but it’s not that easy. If you focus too much on getting fouled, and if you don’t get the call, you’ll probably miss the shot." Vucevic has never averaged more than 2.9 FTs per game in his career and he's currently attempting just 1.8 FTs per game this season. The bigger concern is that he's hitting just 58.5 percent of his attempts, his lowest mark since his rookie season. Coach Frank Vogel said he wants to increase his minutes, so maybe he will be able to get into a better rhythm. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 6:38 am
  • Nikola Vucevic gets 19/7/4 with two blocks
    Nikola Vucevic scored 19 points with seven rebounds, four assists, two blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer on Sunday, making 8-of-17 shots in 26 minutes.

    Advice: The most important event for Vuc tonight was a pre-game quote from Frank Vogel. "[Increasing Vucevic's minutes] is something that we could see going forward," Vogel said. He came in averaging 28.0 minutes per game and any increase would be great news for his fantasy value, even though he's already established as a top-75 guy. Fingers crossed. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 10:38 pm
  • Andre Drummond w/ season-high 28 pts, 14 reb
    Andre Drummond piled up 28 points, 14 rebounds, four steals and two blocks with just one turnover in 52 minutes of action vs. Portland on Sunday.

    Advice: Drummond made 13-of-20 shots during the Pistons' clutch double-OT victory, and he even went 2-of-3 at the FT line tonight. He played just 25 minutes in Detroit's previous game but that was due strictly to foul trouble. He's scored 20+ points just nine times this season but three of those games are in January, so his owners are certainly enjoying a happy new year. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 10:29 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins picks up 11th tech vs. GSW
    DeMarcus Cousins struggled with foul trouble on Sunday and played only 29 minutes, scoring 17 points with 10 boards, five assists, two steals, two blocks and seven turnovers.

    Advice: Cousins flipped out after getting his third personal foul and wound up drawing a technical -- his 11 techs trail only Russell Westbrook this season, and he's five away from a mandatory one-game suspension. Other than that, fantasy owners have no grounds for complaint with his elite production in recent week. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 9:52 pm
  • Alex Len plays six minutes in loss
    Alex Len scored two points with one block in a season-low six minutes in Sunday’s 116-120 loss to the Cavs.

    Advice: The Cavs had a 16-point lead to start the second half, so the Suns couldn’t afford to have Len out there as they needed scorers. Prior to this contest, he was averaging 17.7 minutes, 11.0 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game in January. He should go back to playing his 17-20 minutes on Thursday against the Mavs, a team he scored 14 points and grabbed seven rebounds against a couple of nights ago. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 8:15 pm
  • Rudy Gobert held to five points vs. Grizzlies
    Rudy Gobert made just 1-of-3 FGs and 3-of-6 FTs for five points on Sunday, adding 13 rebounds with two assists, three steals, one block and four turnovers.

    Advice: Utah was playing their fifth game in a seven-day stretch and they were facing the Grizzlies' defense -- the result was a mere 79 points for Utah on 38.9 percent shooting. Gobert has been rolling along after a slow start to the season, and his 23 straight games with double-digit rebounds is a franchise record for the Jazz. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 8:04 pm
  • Marreese Speights scores 19 points in 14 mins
    Marreese Speights was ultra-efficient on Sunday, going 6-of-8 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line on his way to 19 points, three 3-pointers, two boards, one assist, one block and one turnover.

    Advice: Speights did all of his damage in a mere 14 minutes off the bench, and he's been a per-minute monster ever since Blake Griffin (knee) went down. Unfortunately, his playing time has been too sporadic to trust him in standard leagues, so he's just a low-end asset to own in deep leagues for those seeking some help in the 3-point department. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 4:21 pm
  • DeAndre Jordan hauls in 18 rebounds in win
    DeAndre Jordan pulled down 18 rebounds during Sunday's win over the Heat, to go with seven points, one block and one turnover in 34 minutes.

    Advice: This is your prototypical DJ-line with him going 2-of-4 from the field and 3-of-8 from the charity stripe. Jordan's blocks are slightly down this season with him swatting away just 1.7 shots a night, although he still has plenty of time to turn that trend around. Jordan sits amongst the top-5 in true shooting percentage at 65.3, and when you discount his horrific free throw shooting he's a top-20 stud. Once the blocks start to climb, he'll be back in the first-round equation (punting free throws). Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 4:06 pm
  • Willie Reed grabs 10 boards in 17 minutes
    Willie Reed returned to the bench on Sunday, going 2-of-6 from the field on his way to four points, 10 rebounds, one steal, one block and one turnover in 17 minutes.

    Advice: Hassan Whiteside (eye) logged 31 minutes as a starter, so it's going to be tough for Reed to be much of a factor in fantasy hoops operating as Whiteside's backup. You could justify handcuffing him to Whiteside, but Reed isn't worth owning in most scenarios while Hassan is healthy. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 3:44 pm
  • Greg Monroe double-doubles with four steals
    Greg Monroe double-doubled off the Bucks' bench on Sunday, posting 12 points, 12 rebounds, three assists, four steals, one block and three turnovers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Despite the reserve role, Monroe has been hovering around mid-round value all year long, and he's seen his playing time climb to 26.9 over the past few weeks as he's made John Henson look like a joke in the starting lineup. Milwaukee is currently tied with Washington for the No. 8 spot out East, putting them firmly in the playoff hunt, so they may be hesitant to deal Monroe, as he's been providing the team with some nice energy off the bench. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 2:57 pm
  • John Henson looks awful in 15 minutes
    John Henson didn't do much of anything during his 15 minutes of playing time on Sunday, scoring two points on 1-of-3 shooting to go with one rebound, two assists, one steal and two turnovers.

    Advice: Henson didn't even get a single blocked shot, and it's been tough for him to earn meaningful minutes lately with how well Greg Monroe has been playing. Over the past eight games, Henson's playing time has fallen to 19.2 minutes a night and he's been absolutely dreadful with averages of 5.0 points, 3.1 boards and just 0.8 blocks per contest. Henson was only worth owning as a shot blocking specialist, and with him not even doing that, he belongs on the waiver wire just about everywhere. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 2:41 pm
  • Nerlens Noel racks up three steals in 24 mins
    Nerlens Noel finished Sunday's 105-93 win over the Nets with eight points, four boards and three steals in 24 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Noel has flashed his upside in limited minutes off the bench for the 76ers this season, and with per-36-minutes numbers of 20.0 points, 8.3 boards, 2.5 steals and 2.2 blocks per game, you can see why Noel is worthy of stashing in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 11:52 am
  • Willie Reed will come off the bench Sunday
    Willie Reed will come off the bench on Sunday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Hassan Whiteside (eye) will be returning from a four-game absence, but Reed won't be completely irrelevant because the Heat are going to ease him back into action. Reed averaged 13.5 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 2.0 blocks in four starts, so Whiteside's owners in deeper leagues should consider owning him as a handcuff. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 6:20 am
  • Kenneth Faried returned to action on Saturday January 7. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 12:53 am
  • Cody Zeller plays 32 mins vs. Spurs
    Cody Zeller scored nine points with eight rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 32 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday night.

    Advice: He returned to action after missing three games due to a concussion. It was a good sign to see Zeller play over 30 minutes in his first game back. He finished one point and two boards shy of his third double-double of the season. The Hornets head to Houston on Tuesday to take on the Rockets, who are giving up 15.8 rebounds and the eighth most fantasy points per game to opposing centers. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 9:44 pm
  • Rudy Gobert has another big game vs. MIN
    Rudy Gobert scored 12 points with 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal and four blocks in 31 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

    Advice: This isn't even news anymore. Gobert leads the NBA in blocks, but he relinquished his lead for field goal percentage to DeAndre Jordan -- Gobert is still first in true shooting percentage. He deserves an All-Star spot and the Jazz should get hot now that they are finally healthy. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 8:45 pm
  • Kenneth Faried scores four vs. OKC
    Kenneth Faried scored four points with 10 rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: As expected, he played most of his minutes at the backup five spot. Faried was also in Marc Stein's report of possible trade candidates, which is hardly surprising given how well Nikola Jokic (illness) has played. Faried is going to have to fight for his minutes with Jusuf Nurkic, so his value is far from solidified right now. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 7:47 pm
  • Cody Zeller will start against the Spurs
    Cody Zeller (concussion) will start against the Spurs on Saturday night.

    Advice: He was close to returning to action on Thursday and has cleared the concussion protocol. Zeller was starting to play well before his concussion and played 33 minutes before he suffered the injury on Dec. 29. He's worth a look in standard leagues. Roy Hibbert, Spencer Hawes and Frank Kaminsky could lose minutes. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 3:57 pm
  • Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play Saturday
    Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: Zeller has missed three straight games but had played only sporadic minutes even when healthy. Over the 10 games in December in which he played, Zeller averaged just 1.3 points and 0.9 rebounds in 6.4 minutes. He has no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 9:54 am
  • Kenneth Faried (back) will play Saturday
    Kenneth Faried (back) will play Saturday vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Faried went through practice on Friday and shootaround on Saturday morning and is ready to roll. This news directly impacts Jusuf Nurkic, who had finally found some consistent playing time in the three games that Faried was sidelined. We will have to wait and see how coach Mike Malone divvies up the minutes with Faried back in the mix. Nikola Jokic (illness) is a GTD for Saturday, so if Jokic doesn't play, plenty of minutes will open up Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 9:18 am
  • Willie Reed may get bumped to bench on Sunday
    Coach Eric Spoelstra was non-committal when asked about who he would start at center on Sunday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Willie Reed (22 points, 12 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 32 minutes) played extremely well on Friday in place of Hassan Whiteside (eye). However, Whiteside is hopeful he will be healthy enough to return to action on Sunday. "There's been so many moving parts with this team, everything is open," Spo said. Still, if Whiteside is able to play, it is safe to assume he'll draw the start. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 8:56 am
  • DeMarcus Cousins fills it up in a loss
    DeMarcus Cousins scored 25 points during a 106-98 loss to the Clippers on Friday, adding 11 rebounds, seven assists, three steals, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: His increased assists have been a trend lately, averaging 6.2 per game over his last five. Cousins has been a little down in the scoring over that span, averaging 24.6 points, 7.0 boards, 2.4 steals and 1.8 treys in that span. He's a complete beast. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 10:34 pm
  • Free Willie: Reed scores 22 w/ 12 rebounds
    Willie Reed scored 22 points (10-of-15 FGs, 2-of-5 FTs) with 12 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 32 minutes against the Lakers on Friday.

    Advice: He averaged 10.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.7 blocks and 0.7 steals in his three previous starts, but his two monster games came against the Suns and Lakers and he posted two duds against the Kings and Pistons. Hassan Whiteside (eye) is traveling with the Heat again and could return as soon as Thursday's game vs. the Clippers, so Reed is just a short-term option until Whiteside is cleared. With that said, Reed could emerge down the stretch with the Heat clearly tanking. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 10:05 pm
  • Greg Monroe scores 19 off the bench
    Greg Monroe scored 19 points on 6-of-11 shooting in Friday's loss to the Knicks.

    Advice: The big man also grabbed seven rebounds with four assists, two steals and one block in 28 minutes. Monroe is trending up and he's clearly the center to own in Milwaukee right now. He's played 27 or more minutes in five out of his last six games, and he's averaging 13.6 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.6 steals in that span. Maybe the Bucks shouldn't trade him. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 9:05 pm
  • Kevin Love double-doubles vs. Nets
    Kevin Love returned to action on Friday with 17 points, 13 rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers against the Nets.

    Advice: When it comes to weird injuries, Love is right up there. From doing knuckle pushups to getting sick due to bad sea bass, anything is possible for one of the best power forward shooters in the league. Love has been awesome all season and should continue to flirt with first-round value, assuming he doesn't get into a fight with a flamingo or something like that. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 8:48 pm
  • Nerlens Noel looks really good vs. Boston
    Nerlens Noel played 25 minutes with 13 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks against the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: He was very good on offense and had a great rapport with T.J. McConnell. The 76ers also used him next to Joel Embiid in this game for a few minutes, which fared much better than the Embiid and Jahlil Okafor lineups. This is still a very unclear situation, but Noel is a decent stash and should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 7:43 pm
  • Cody Zeller questionable for Saturday
    Cody Zeller (concussion protocol) is listed as questionable for Saturday against the Spurs.

    Advice: He should be close to a return after going through some of warmups on Thursday. If Zeller can go, he would take minutes from Spencer Hawes and Frank Kaminsky. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 3:45 pm
  • Tyler Zeller will not play
    Tyler Zeller (illness) will not play against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: Even before his illness on Tuesday, Zeller has been out of the rotation. Amir Johnson and Kelly Olynyk have been the bigs next to Al Horford. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 2:47 pm
  • Kevin Love (illness) will play on Friday
    Kevin Love (illness) participated in shootaround Friday morning and will play on Friday night vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Love has been dealing with an illness believed to be the result of food poisoning all week, losing approximately 10 pounds in the process. He struggled through Monday's game but was forced to sit out Wednesday. Love appears to have finally moved past the illness and should be locked and loaded in fantasy lineups on Friday. Channing Frye, who started on Wednesday, will return to his role as a reserve on Friday night. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 7:05 am
