  • Windhorst thinks Shumpert could be traded
    ESPN's Brian Windhorst said dealing away Iman Shumpert could be a "type of trade" the Cavs may be interested in making this week.

    Advice: To be very clear here, Windhorst and the radio host said "this is not a report" multiple times, so this is just an opinion from the plugged-in guy in Cleveland. Windhorst said a possible trade for Alec Burks and Shelvin Mack could make sense. The reasoning on this is Kyle Korver catching fire and also J.R. Smith coming back for the playoffs. Again, to be clear, this is just an opinion, but just keep that in mind if the Cavs are looking to make a 2-for-1 deal. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:32 am
  • Suns GM expects Ulis to have bigger role
    Suns GM Ryan McDonough believes that Tyler Ulis will "play more minutes" after the trade deadline.

    Advice: The Suns are expected to be sellers at the deadline and Brandon Knight could be on the move, so Ulis' outlook is promising. It also helps that the Suns may manage Eric Bledsoe's minutes down the stretch, as coach Earl Watson has hinted that Bledsoe has struggled with fatigue at times this season. Ulis has been in and out of the rotation this season, but it sounds like the Suns want to give him a lot of burn moving forward and a Knight trade would be the first step. He's just a stash in deeper leagues while Bledsoe is healthy, but you might as well put him on your watch list. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:10 am
  • Georges-Hunt's 10-day deal expires
    Marcus Georges-Hunt's 10-day contract with the Heat has expired.

    Advice: The Heat would have to waive a player in order to re-sign Georges-Hunt to another 10-day deal, as Josh Richardson (foot) is set to return after the All-Star break. He didn't even make an appearance for the Heat, so this won't have an impact on the rotation. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:12 am
  • Glenn Robinson III wins Slam Dunk Contest
    Glenn Robinson III won the Slam Dunk Contest on Saturday night.

    Advice: After one of the best Slam Dunk Contests ever last year, this one was a little disappointing. There were a lot of missed dunks and Aaron Gordon just didn't have the bounce that he had last year. Derrick Jones Jr. arguably had the best two dunks on the night, but misses in the final cost him. When he returns to action next week, Robinson III could lose his starting job due to the Pacers looking to deal their first-round pick for some help. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:29 pm
  • Briante Weber assigned to D-League
    The Warriors assigned Briante Weber to the D-League on Friday.

    Advice: The move will allow Weber to participate in Saturday morning's D-League All-Star game. Weber has appeared in five games with the Warriors this season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.0 assist in 8.2 minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:22 am
  • Bullseye: Jamal Murray is MVP of Rising Stars
    Jamal Murray took home MVP honors in the Rising Stars Challenge during the World's 150-141 win on Friday, scoring 36 points with four rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and nine 3-pointers in just 20 minutes.

    Advice: The arrows were flying in New Orleans for the No. 7 pick in the 2016 draft. Late in this game, Murray got about as hot as anyone could get this side of Klay Thompson's 37-point third quarter against the Kings, scoring 25 points in the second half tonight. Heading into the second half of the season, Murray could be a more effective scorer with how Mason Plumlee is such a great passer out of the post. Still, he doesn't have a clear path for minutes and the Nuggets looking like they want to go for the No. 8 seed makes it less likely Jameer Nelson is traded. Long term, Murray looks like a good one. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:24 pm
  • Jason Terry wants to play 2 more years
    Jason Terry said he is planning to play two more years.

    Advice: "I’m going to play two more years, God willing," Terry said. "Actually, I am going to play two more years." Despite turning 40 later this year, the JET played 47 games this season with 17.1 minutes per outing. Although, the return of Khris Middleton should take minutes away from him. In fact, he's been a DNP-CD in two of the last last three games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:57 pm
  • Magic could shop Jeff Green
    The Pistons and Magic have discussed a trade that would send Jeff Green and D.J. Augustin to Detroit for Reggie Jackson, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: The Magic signed Green to a one-year, $15 million deal, so that expiring contract could help the Magic make a move. It is interesting to see they have talked about a Jackson deal to pick up a big contract despite a terrible season. Last year, we saw the Magic and Pistons pull the reverse on this with the Magic trading away Tobias Harris for the expiring deals of Brandon Jennings and Ersan Ilyasova -- Tobias has been good, though. Anyway, Jeff Green being dealt would open up minutes for Aaron Gordon and Mario Hezonja. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:07 pm

  • D.J. Augustin possibly on the block?
    The Pistons and Magic have discussed a trade that would send D.J. Augustin and Jeff Green to Detroit for Reggie Jackson, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: He was signed to a four-year, $29 million deal last year, so this wouldn't be about his contract. Everyone knows coach Stan Van Gundy likes his point guards to be able to shoot, so Augustin fits that bill. He could potentially get more minutes, but he's still not worth picking up unless you're cutting something you won't miss. DJA is 29 years old. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:57 am
  • James Young gets clutch minutes again
    James Young scored five points with one rebound and one 3-pointer in nine minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

    Advice: He continues to get some crunch-time minutes. Yeah, this is due to some injuries, but Young was the likely the last player to make the roster back in October. He's always been on thin ice with the Celtics fan base, especially when fellow shooting guard Rodney Hood was picked after him. While Young gets some props, he has almost no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:29 pm
  • Malachi Richardson (hamstring) out 4-6 weeks
    Malachi Richardson will be out 4-6 weeks with partial thickness tear of the right hamstring.

    Advice: His hamstring injury did not look good on Wednesday night with Richardson needing help off the floor. The rookie was starting to turn the corner this month, but now he could miss the rest of the season. With him out, the Kings will likely be turning to Ben McLemore a little more frequently. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:45 pm
  • DeRozan praises Delon Wright
    DeMar DeRozan praised Delon Wright for his performance on Wednesday night.

    Advice: "Last year when he was playing he was thinking too much," DeRozan said. "This time around, he just understands what he can do, his abilities, being creative with the ball, using screens, one-on-one, getting to the basket." Wright missed half the season after having shoulder surgery, but he's looked solid in two straight games and scored 11 points with two assists, one rebound, one block and two steals in 28 minutes on Wednesday. The Raptors were missing two big pieces of their rotation in Serge Ibaka and Patrick Patterson, but Wright has made a strong case to remain in the mix going forward. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:23 am
  • Malachi Richardson to have an MRI
    Malachi Richardson will undergo an MRI on his right hamstring on Thursday.

    Advice: Richardson went down late in Wednesday's game vs. the Warriors and needed help getting back to the locker room, but the good news is that he has a full week off during the All-Star break. The rookie has been more involved lately due to several injuries in front of him in Sacramento, but he's still sitting on waiver wires in the vast majority of leagues and doesn't have much value right now. We'll hopefully have an update on his condition by this evening. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:56 am
  • Pat McCaw plays well off bench w/ Klay back
    Pat McCaw shifted back to the bench on Wednesday, where he posted four points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 18 minutes.

    Advice: McCaw had a +/- rating of +21 in his limited time on the court, and coach Steve Kerr had nothing but praise for him after the game. He blew up for 19 points in 35 minutes on Monday but that was only because Klay Thompson (foot) was out, and McCaw doesn't have much appeal while the Warriors' backcourt is at full strength. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:25 pm
  • Malachi Richardson hurts hamstring Wednesday
    Malachi Richardson went down late in Wednesday's game vs. the Warriors and needed two trainers to help him into the locker room.

    Advice: Richardson was running a fastbreak when he suddenly pulled up clutching his right hamstring, a sad ending to an otherwise hopeful night in which he scored 10 points and grabbed eight rebounds in 27 minutes. It's helpful that the All-Star break has arrived, but that won't matter if it's more than a typical hamstring strain. The Kings will likely run some tests, so deep-league owners should check for updates over the next few days. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:57 pm
  • Andre Roberson bounces back on Wednesday
    Andre Roberson bounced back from an invisible game on Monday to score 10 points with seven rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: Anyone deploying Roberson will take it after Monday's dud, in which he committed two fouls, missed two shots, and recorded no other stats in 16 minutes of action. Roberson is averaging 1.4 blocks and 1.2 steals in his past five outings, but owners shouldn't expect more than that level of defensive contribution. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:41 pm
  • Ron Baker plays 18 minutes w/ Jennings out
    Ron Baker returned to the Knicks' rotation on Wednesday, playing 18 minutes to finish with six points, two assists, one rebound and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Baker has had a few brief, shining moments this season but at no point has he posted reliable fantasy value. Brandon Jennings was out tonight due to Achilles soreness, which thrust Baker into the backup PG role, but with the All-Star break imminent it's possible this will be Jennings' only DNP. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:40 pm
  • Gerald Green (heel) will travel for Thursday
    Gerald Green (bruised left heel) didn't return to Wednesday's game after getting hurt in the first half, but he hopes to play on Thursday in Chicago.

    Advice: Green did come back on the Celtics' bench but he didn't re-enter, finishing scoreless with one assist in six minutes. His absence gave James Young (10 points in 22 minutes) a temporary boost, but his optimism for Thursday's game confirms it's not too serious. Even if he misses a game, he should be fine after the break. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:48 pm
  • Pat McCaw back to the bench
    Klay Thompson (foot) is back in the starting lineup and Pat McCaw will move to the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: We saw Pat "McGawd" McCaw go off on Monday with a career-high 19 points, so he could be earning more minutes as a reserve. Just keep an eye on him in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:22 pm
  • Glenn Robinson III bounces back w 19 points
    Glenn Robinson III bounced back on Wednesday with 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting, adding three 3-pointers, six rebounds and two assists with zero turnovers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: GR3 went scoreless as a starter on Monday but coach Nate McMillan stuck with him over C.J. Miles tonight. Fantasy owners have already seen what to expect from Robinson as a starter -- in 25 games he averaged 7.3 points, 0.9 threes, 5.1 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.4 blocks. Despite tonight's strong game, he can be left on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:18 pm
  • Jeff Green starts, plays 35 minutes on Wed
    Jeff Green moved into Orlando's starting unit on Wednesday and had 11 points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Green's start may be temporary, however, if the Magic eventually opt for a lineup that includes Terrence Ross alongside C.J. Watson (or another PG), Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon and Nik Vucevic. Even if the veteran Green does continue to start, he's been far too unreliable to own in standard leagues.

  • Jeff Green will start Wednesday vs. the Spurs
    Jeff Green will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

    Advice: Orlando's first starting five sans Serge Ibaka will feature C.J. Watson, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Green and Nikola Vucevic. Head coach Frank Vogel said that he's hesitant to give Gordon major minutes at the four-spot due to concerns about the team's perimeter defense, so he'll continue to experiment with the 30-year-old Green at power forward.

  • Iman Shumpert scores nine in return to action
    Iman Shumpert returned from a three-game absence due to a sprained ankle on Tuesday and hit 3-of-9 shots (all 3-pointers) for nine points and one assist in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He wasn't great and didn't play particularly well, but he gave the Cavs solid minutes and his team got the win. He is a warrior when it comes from overcoming injuries and while it's great to see him back, the emergence of Kyle Korver is probably not going to do any favors for his fantasy value. Shumpert's a borderline player to own right now, mainly because of Korver, who played 27 minutes tonight. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 pm
  • Delon Wright makes season debut
    Delon Wright made his season debut on Tuesday vs. the Bulls, scoring two points on 1-of-2 shooting with one rebound and one assist in 10 minutes.

    Advice: He looked solid and was the only Raptor to finish with a positive +/- rating of +6. Surprisingly, Wright was actually used as a small forward tonight, so it looks he could pick up a few minutes due to the Terrence Ross add. It's nice to see the talented PG get minutes, but he likely needs a trade to have any real value. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:52 pm
  • Dubs gives second 10-day contract to Weber
    The Warriors have signed Briante Weber to a second 10-day contract.

    Advice: The timing of this deal is odd as Weber will only have the opportunity to suit up for a total of two games until this second contract expires due to the All-Star break, but this could be a sign that the Dubs will be without Shaun Livingston (personal) for Wednesday's game against the Kings. Weber saw 24 minutes on Monday night with both Livingston and Klay Thompson (heel) unavailable, but only managed to put up two points, three dimes, one steal, one block and one board. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:28 pm
  • Iman Shumpert starting, Liggins to the bench
    Iman Shumpert (ankle) will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves, sending DeAndre Liggins back to the bench.

    Advice: "He is the bionic man," Lue said about Shumpert's ability to recover from injuries. "He heals fast." Shumpert was a full participant during shootaround, and there's been no word of a minutes limit, so he's someone to consider throwing out there as a 3-point and steals streamer. Liggins is irrelevant. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:36 am
  • Iman Shumpert (ankle) will play Tuesday
    Iman Shumpert (ankle) is expected to play Tuesday vs. Minnesota.

    Advice: This is a bit surprising, as Shump acknowledged over the weekend that he might be forced to sit out through the All-Star break. DeAndre Liggins, who started in place of Shumpert on Saturday, will get bumped back to the bench. Shump's return could eat into the minutes of Kyle Korver. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:49 am
  • Tyler Ulis picks up a DNP-CD
    Tyler Ulis was DNP-CD on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Eric Bledsoe returned from a day of rest, but Brandon Knight got the backup PG minutes even though Ulis scored a career-high 13 points with two rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday. The Suns might be showcasing Knight for a trade and we still think Ulis will be more involved after the break. However, tonight confirmed that he's just a stash in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:03 pm
  • Jamal Murray playing well for Nuggets
    Jamal Murray played 23 minutes off the bench and finished with 14 points, four assists, a steal and two 3-pointers on 5-of-9 shooting in Monday's blowout win over the Warriors.

    Advice: The Nuggets are banged up right now and Murray has scored in double digits in three of his last four games. Murray's far from a must-own player, but with so many teammates injured, he could stay hot if the banged up players continue to miss games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:23 pm
  • Pat McCaw scores career-high 19 points
    Patrick McCaw got the start at shooting guard on Monday and hit 8-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for a career-high 19 points, one rebound and two assists in 35 minutes of a 132-110 loss to the Nuggets.

    Advice: He started in place of Klay Thompson (heel) and played very well, but also benefitted from the blowout score, as the Warriors threw in the towel and played scrubs in the fourth quarter of this one. Kevin Durant had 25 points and a nice line, while Stephen Curry hit just 4-of-18 shots and 1-of-11 3-pointers for 11 points in the loss. McCaw was a fun DFS play if you had the guts to use him tonight, but he'll disappear as soon as Klay is back in action. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:38 pm
  • Andre Roberson goes scoreless in 16 mins
    Andre Roberson failed to score in 16 minutes of action vs. the Wizards on Monday.

    Advice: After averaging 9.8 points, 10.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.8 blocks and 1.3 turnovers in his previous four games, Roberson burned any fantasy owners who took a flier on him this week. He missed two shots from the field and didn't record a single stat besides two fouls. It's almost impossible to not drop him after a night like this, especially outside of deeper leagues. He should be better against the Knicks on Wednesday, but his upside is low anyways. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:23 pm
  • Glenn Robinson fails to score despite start
    Glenn Robinson moved into the starting lineup on Monday and missed both his shots, failing to score in 22 minutes in a 110-106 loss to the Spurs.

    Advice: C.J. Miles moved to the bench and played some power forward, as the Pacers were without Lavoy Allen (knee) and Thaddeus Young (wrist), but the move appears to have backfired. Robinson was awful, Miles hit just 2-of-7 shots for five points, and the Pacers lost the game. Robinson is not a player worth rostering in almost any league these days. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:36 pm
  • Patrick McCaw will start on Monday
    Patrick McCaw will start in place of Klay Thompson (sore right heel) on Monday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: The rookie has a bright future, but it hasn't translated to fantasy value yet. In two previous starts this season, McCaw averaged 5.5 points, 3.0 assists, 2.0 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.5 triple in 23.5 minutes per. Thompson is day-to-day, so McCaw is only on the radar in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:34 pm
  • Glenn Robinson starting, Miles to the bench
    Glenn Robinson will start Monday vs. the Spurs, with C.J. Miles coming off the bench.

    Advice: The Pacers are without Thaddeus Young (wrist) and Lavoy Allen (knee) tonight, so they're likely bringing Miles off the bench to act as the backup power forward with little other options available. While earning starts at the two-spot this season, Robinson owns averages of just 5.6 points, 4.9 boards and not much else, so he's not a great target in most settings. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 3:50 pm
  • Briante Weber could get some extra mins Mon
    With both Klay Thompson (heel) and Shaun Livingston (personal) unavailable for Monday's matchup with the Nuggets, Briante Weber could see some extended minutes with the Warriors.

    Advice: Weber may be able to flirt with minutes in the teens tonight, but that's still not enough time for him to make a difference in most leagues. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 1:08 pm
  • Briante Weber will get another 10-day deal
    The Warriors are planning to sign Briante Weber to another 10-day deal.

    Advice: He's played a total of 11 minutes in three appearances, scoring six points with two boards, one assist and one steal in that span. Weber is a lot of fun to watch and is an exciting defender, but he doesn't have a great path to minutes in Golden State and belongs on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 8:21 am
  • Iman Shumpert (ankle) out through A.S. break?
    Iman Shumpert (sprained ankle) acknowledged that he might not return until after the All-Star break.

    Advice: "Probably the most swelling I've ever had on anything besides ACL and getting my knee drained," Shumpert said. "I would love to play before the All-Star break. I'm not trying to sit out, but I'm also not going to lie to to myself, try to push through something when it's not completely healed." The Cavs are likely to play it safe, with an eye on the playoffs, so owners should prepare for more DNPs from Shump. Rotoworld.com Feb 12, 12:03 pm
  • James Young scores 10 points
    James Young scored a season-high 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting with a pair of triples in 15 minutes vs. the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: The Celtics were missing Avery Bradley (Achilles) and Jae Crowder (personal), while Jaylen Brown left the game after the first half with a hip injury. Young made the most of his opportunity, but he had scored a total of 26 points on the season prior to tonight which sums up his fantasy value. Ignore this. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 9:28 pm
  • Tyler Ulis scores career-high 13 points
    Tyler Ulis scored a career-high 13 points with two rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: Brandon Knight was awful in this game, so this was a good night for Ulis to move up on the depth chart. Coach Earl Watson talked up Ulis after the game and made it seem like more minutes could be headed his way. He's only a stash in deep leagues, of course. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 9:12 pm
  • Andre Roberson scores six points in loss
    Andre Roberson scored six points with 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks in 34 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: He didn't have as much success on the defensive end like he did against LeBron James earlier this week. Still, Roberson is getting some heavy run because the other forwards aren't filling in for Enes Kanter (arm), so OKC has gone smaller more often. He's played 36.6 minutes per game over his last four, averaging 9.8 points, 10.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 1.8 steals, 1.8 blocks and 1.3 turnovers. He's still better in deep leagues, but he's also become a much better punt in DFS these days. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 8:32 pm
  • Iman Shumpert (ankle) out Saturday
    Iman Shumpert (ankle) is listed as out in the game notes for Saturday's tilt vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: This is just an early release of the game notes, so there is still a possibility that Shumpert suits up. We should have a better idea of his status after the team's shootaround on Saturday morning. Jordan McRae started at shooting guard on Thursday and finished with six points and two rebounds in 27 minutes. DeAndre Liggins played just one minute off the bench. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 7:28 am
  • Jamal Murray scores just two points
    Jamal Murray scored two points with three rebounds, one assist and three turnovers in 15 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

    Advice: Jameer Nelson, Gary Harris and Will Barton were all playing great, so there wasn't much of a chance for Murray. He played 12 minutes at point guard and just three minutes at the two, which has been how his minutes have been split recently due to the injuries on the perimeter. Nelson is the better player to own. Rotoworld.com Feb 10, 7:03 pm
  • Delon Wright recalled
    Delon Wright was recalled on Friday.

    Advice: He is likely behind Fred VanVleet for the No. 3 point guard job. Wright had a good start to Summer League, but the shoulder injury set him back. Rotoworld.com Feb 10, 11:17 am
  • Andre Roberson brings the defense vs. LBJ
    Andre Roberson played 41 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday with eight points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

    Advice: It was one of the best defensive games against LeBron James for anyone this season. Roberson gets much more respect in the reality world than in fantasy due to how he's not an offensive producer, so just leave him on the wire. He's someone to consider as a punt when OKC faces a stud wing. Rotoworld.com Feb 9, 7:54 pm
  • Jeff Green doesn't do much in return
    Jeff Green (personal) returned to action on Thursday with three points, five rebounds and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes against the 76ers.

    Advice: If Aaron Gordon (foot) can't go, there's a decent chance Green starts the next time out. Mario Hezonja may have only had a one-time chance to show what he could do and coach Frank Vogel said he likes Green's durability. Still, Green isn't really an add here. Rotoworld.com Feb 9, 7:02 pm
    Player Note

  • D.J. Augustin still gets 24 minutes
    D.J. Augustin played 24 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday with nine points, three rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: Up until 26 seconds left, he closed out as the shooting guard tonight with C.J. Watson next to him. The move of C.J. Watson to the point should hurt Augustin more often than not as he will have to play off the ball even more. He's not really worth owning in most leagues regardless. Rotoworld.com Feb 9, 6:54 pm
  • Jamal Murray likes playing point guard
    Jamal Murray said playing point guard is like he "was at home."

    Advice: "I love playing the point, my natural position," Murray said. In the last two games, Murray has played 34 of his 41 minutes as a point guard. It's a small sample, but the Nuggets do have a +11.8 net rating in that time, so at least it's working. Murray could be a sneaky play against the Knicks on Friday. Rotoworld.com Feb 9, 3:29 pm
  • Jeff Green (personal) will play Thursday
    Jeff Green (personal reasons) will play on Thursday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: He missed Tuesday's game because he was with his family after his fiance gave birth to the couple's first child. With Aaron Gordon (foot) out tonight, Green is likely to start and could eclipse 30+ minutes in a great matchup -- the 76ers allow the 10th most fantasy points to opposing small forwards. To be clear, he's only on the radar in DFS and as a short-term pickup in deeper leagues since Gordon is day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Feb 9, 8:28 am

  • Iman Shumpert (ankle) could return Saturday?
    Iman Shumpert (sprained ankle) is hopeful that he can return for Saturday's home game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Shumpert’s ankle swelled up so much during Monday’s game that he needed a walking boot and crutches to leave the arena. He was on the court shooting on Wednesday morning, even though he was supposed to be resting, and his optimism for Saturday's game suggests that it's not overly serious. He's already been ruled out for Thursday's game, which should result in at least one more start for DeAndre Liggins. Rotoworld.com Feb 8, 11:42 pm
