  • Wade Baldwin was signed by MEM on Sunday March 26. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:11 am
  • Tyler Ennis scores season-high 14 points
    Tyler Ennis took advantage of expanded minutes on Sunday to post a season-high 14 points (6-of-15 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs) with five assists, four steals and three rebounds in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Ennis was a big winner in the rotation tonight as the only true guard in the second unit. He hit season-highs in nearly every category and benefited from L.A.'s unusual rotations in a blowout loss without Brandon Ingram (knee). We'll need to see a few more solid performances before approaching him as a fantasy pickup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Larry Nance confident in his 3-point shooting
    Larry Nance missed both of his 3-point attempts on Sunday, but he finished 4-of-7 from the field for nine points, seven rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes.

    Advice: "At the beginning of the season it was, ‘All right, I’ve got [an open 3-point shot], who else is open?’" Nance said before the game. "Now it's, ‘I’ve got it. Where’s the shot clock at?’ I’m confident in it, our team’s confident, the coaches have given me confidence. I’m ready to let it go." He's just 6-of-23 from deep this season and his owners shouldn't be eager for more long-range attempts, since his 53.3 percent shooting is a key aspect of his fantasy value. Better luck next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Corey Brewer starts for Brandon Ingram (knee)
    Corey Brewer started Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (right knee), finishing with three points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Brewer might have played more if the game were close, but the veteran got a long rest with the score out of hand in the second half. He's not a fantasy option, even if Ingram misses more games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:38 pm
  • David Nwaba plays well in 29 minutes Sunday
    David Nwaba came off the bench on Sunday for nine points on 4-of-4 shooting with one 3-pointer, one rebound and one steal in 29 minutes of action.

    Advice: Luke Walton said Nwaba was "spectacular" filling in for Brandon Ingram (knee) late in Friday's game. Corey Brewer got the start in place of Ingram tonight, but the D-League call-up wound up playing more minutes in the blowout home loss. Nwaba's made 3-pointer was the first of his career, and he has a long way to go before earning a spot on fantasy rosters. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Noah Vonleh grabs career-high 14 rebounds
    Noah Vonleh racked up a career-high 14 rebounds in 26 minutes vs. the Lakers on Sunday, adding eight points on 4-of-8 shooting.

    Advice: Vonleh posted 12 boards on Thursday vs. the Knicks and it didn't take him long to exceed that mark -- he could have gone even higher, but Portland's starters were reined in during tonight's blowout win. Vonleh is thriving lately and he's making the most of limited attempts on offense, but fantasy owners shouldn't rely on him in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Allen Crabbe scores 18 points w/ full line
    Allen Crabbe got hot in 29 minutes off the bench on Sunday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting with four 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and zero turnovers.

    Advice: Crabbe tied his career-high with at least one 3-pointer in 15 consecutive games, and the return of Evan Turner (two points in 20 minutes) has done nothing to slow him down. Crabbe has six blocks in his past four games, which is fluky, and he's still just a borderline option in most leagues. That said, he's better in 9-cat thanks to his stingy 0.7 turnovers over the past dozen games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Alexis Ajinca pulls down seven boards
    Alexis Ajinca finished with six points, seven rebounds, two steals and a blocked shots in Sunday's 115-90 win at Denver.

    Advice: Head coach Alvin Gentry told reporters after the game that Ajinca was the team's MVP in the win due to the energy he provided off the bench. Ajinca has plenty of energy because he averaged just 9.2 minutes per game over his past five outings. Despite the coach's nice words and the decent stat line, Ajinca doesn't have much fantasy appeal outside of the deepest of leagues. He was playing more than usual because DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) was sidelined and the team was involved in a lopsided game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:44 pm
  • Gerald Henderson (hip) logs 18 minutes
    Gerald Henderson (hip) played 18 minutes during Sunday's 107-94 loss in Indiana, going 2-of-6 from the field for five points, two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Henderson's hip has been a nagging issue for most of the season, and it's somewhat surprising that Philly hasn't simply shut him down. He's little more than a veteran mentor at this point, setting an example for his neophyte teammates, and the vast majority of fantasy owners can do better on the wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:15 pm
  • Corey Brewer starting for Brandon Ingram
    Corey Brewer will start Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (patellar tendinitis).

    Advice: David Nwaba should also get a significant boost with Ingram on the sidelines, and we might even see Nick Young or Metta World Peace get a few minutes. This is a situation to avoid in the vast majority of fantasy scenarios. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:05 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey exits Sunday's game
    Rodney Stuckey (knee) left Sunday's game against the 76ers due to a sore knee and he was unable to return.

    Advice: With the Pacers up by a considerable margin, it's uncertain if Stuckey was unavailable due to the severity of his injury or if he was just rested since the game was well out of reach. If Stuckey misses any time it's good news for Aaron Brooks. Stuckey finished with just two points on 1-of-8 shooting before departing. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:18 pm
  • Bobby Portis vanishes in 13 minutes vs. MIL
    Bobby Portis vanished on Sunday with just four points and two rebounds in 13 minutes of action, finishing 2-of-6 from the field with no other stats.

    Advice: Portis was averaging 15.0 points and 6.8 rebounds in his previous four games, so this was a serious letdown for his owners. Nikola Mirotic blew up tonight with 28 points on 11-of-14 shooting, which led directly to Portis' limited playing time. He should fare better vs. the Cavs on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:17 pm
  • Ty Lawson (knee) a late scratch vs. Clippers
    Ty Lawson (right knee stiffness) was a late scratch vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

    Advice: Lawson's injury wasn't reported until well after the game began, so this will burn more than a few owners in DFS and deep leagues. He's a perpetual DNP risk even when healthy, and there should be many more reliable options on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:57 pm
  • Jared Dudley puts up another good game
    Jared Dudley scored 12 points with two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers against the Hornets on Sunday.

    Advice: He's playing arguably his best ball since November and the Suns not having depth is a big reason why. The Suns do want Dragan Bender (ankle) to return at some point this year and the rookie is doing some on-court work, so that casts some doubt on Dudley the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:44 pm
  • Jeff Green (back spasms) ruled out Monday
    Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play on Monday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: He's not even making the trip and this will be his third straight game on the shelf. With the Magic playing for lottery balls, it wouldn't be a surprise if the veteran missed more time. Mario Hezonja is getting a nice bump in minutes in Green's absence, but he's only worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues for now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:34 am
  • Kosta Koufos will rest on Sunday
    Kosta Koufos will rest on Sunday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: This is the front end of a back-to-back set, meaning Koufos should be good for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies. He's going to be rested way too much to help fantasy owners going forward. Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis should get a nice bump with Koufos out, but Labissiere is the better fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:29 am
  • Gerald Henderson is available Sunday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) is available to play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He sat out of the morning shootaround and is likely battling some soreness in his hip. Henderson will likely pick up some DNPs down the stretch, so he belongs on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:34 am
  • Ty Lawson returned to action on Friday March 24. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:00 am
  • Ty Lawson happy court date is behind him
    Ty Lawson says he feels like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders after getting through a court appearance on Thursday.

    Advice: Lawson denied he violated his probation stemming from a drunken driving case in 2015 and had his next hearing pushed back to May 4. This means he will not be disciplined by the NBA this season. Lawson started at PG on Friday vs. the Warriors and finished with 20 points, two assists and two 3-pointers. "He looked much more relieved," said coach Dave Joerger. "He was the Ty that we know that he is still." Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:43 am
  • Kosta Koufos scores two points
    Kosta Koufos scored two points with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 14 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: He'll get more rest going forward and there is just no upside in fantasy right now. Even if you're in a 40-man league, go pick up someone else. The Kings may even shut him down to look more at their youth. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:48 pm
  • Ty Lawson scores 20 points
    Ty Lawson scored 20 points with two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers against the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: He did his damage early with 18 points in the first half, but the Kings went away from him in the second half. Considering Lawson will likely be rested for several games, he can stay on the wire in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:46 pm
  • David Nwaba scores career-high 10 points
    David Nwaba scored a career-high 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting vs. the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: Nick Young picked up another DNP-CD, and considering the Lakers gave Nwaba a two-year deal, it's clear that they want to get a long look at him going forward. He's more of a defender, but he played 26 minutes tonight with seven rebounds and two assists. He's worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues if he keeps getting this type of run, and it's worth noting that he was playing down the stretch of the overtime win. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:37 pm
  • Larry Nance plays 35 minutes in overtime win
    Larry Nance played 35 minutes in Friday's overtime win over the Wolves, finishing with 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and four turnovers.

    Advice: He looked great on both ends tonight and coach Luke Walton has been dropping some hints that Nance could eventually get a shot in the first unit -- Walton said it could happen "at some point" and also pointed out that he has great chemistry with starting center Ivica Zubac. If Nance plays well on Sunday vs. the Blazers, he could be an interesting flier with four games on the schedule next week. He was poked in the eye during the final minute of this one, but he stayed in the game and appeared to be fine. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:29 pm
  • Bobby Portis scores 17 points in loss
    Bobby Portis scored 17 points with 11 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: The Bulls rotation is an absolute mess, so who knows how much Portis will play? Nikola Mirotic is still playing somewhat well, so Portis is likely only going to be in the low 20s for his next time out. He's not really worth owning right now. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:12 pm
  • Jared Dudley hands out 10 dimes
    Jared Dudley matched his career-high 10 dimes against the Celtics on Friday, adding six points, four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

    Advice: He shockingly had six assists in the final 14 minutes to help get Devin Booker going. The Suns need bodies out there, so Dudley should continue to play minutes in the 20s. He's still not going to be worth owning in most leagues. Plus, maybe Dragan Bender comes back. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:46 pm
  • Kosta Koufos starting vs. the Warriors
    Kosta Koufos is starting vs. the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: Koufos was rested on Wednesday vs. the Bucks, but should see his normal workload tonight. We still like Skal Labissiere's outlook going forward and Koufos could get more DNPs down the stretch, so Koufos belongs on the wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:16 pm
  • Ty Lawson and Kosta Koufos starting Friday
    Ty Lawson and Kosta Koufos are starting vs. the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: The Kings are starting Lawson, Buddy Hield, Arron Afflalo, Kosta Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein. Lawson was rested last game, but he's looking at a heavy workload tonight with Darren Collison resting this time around. He's still a low-end option going forward. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:14 pm
  • Jeff Green (back) ruled out Friday vs. DET
    Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play Friday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: This is the second straight game Green has missed due to low back pain. Mario Hezonja is expected to soak up the majority of minutes left behind by Green. Hezonja played 23 minutes on Wednesday, scoring eight points and grabbing seven rebounds. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:24 pm
  • Jeff Green (back spasms) a GTD for Friday
    Coach Frank Vogel said that Jeff Green (back spasms) will be a game-time decision on Friday night vs. Detroit.

    Advice: Green did not play on Wednesday due to the back issue. With Green sidelined, Mario Hezonja logged 23 minutes, finishing with eight points and seven rebounds. Mario would likely see 20-plus minutes again on Friday if Green is unable to play. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:23 am
  • Ty Lawson denies violating his probation
    Ty Lawson denied that he violated his probation is a court hearing on Thursday.

    Advice: The Associated Press reported that Lawson "wanted his vehicle equipped with an interlock device that would test him for alcohol consumption so he could prove he's not drinking." The judge agreed and will hold another hearing in May to determine if Lawson should face more severe punishment. Thus, it appears he won't face any discipline from the NBA this season. Lawson may have to deal with a suspension at the start of the 2017-18 season, depending on what happens in his next court hearing. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:13 am
  • Noah Vonleh grabs 12 boards
    Noah Vonleh matched his career-high 12 rebounds against the Knicks on Thursday, adding four points, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He's actually making an impact on the stat sheet and for coach Terry Stotts. The problem is Stotts just has another weapon to use and make his rotation even more complicated. Most fantasy owners will just want to avoid this situation. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:50 pm
  • Gerald Henderson scores four points
    Gerald Henderson scored four points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 16 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: The 76ers didn't play Henderson on Monday and actually put him in the first unit to start the second half. With the 76ers likely wanting to get a longer look at their younger wings, Henderson won't be playing too much down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:40 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey gets a DNP-CD
    Rodney Stuckey was a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Nate McMillan changed his rotation and went with Aaron Brooks over Stuckey for today. He mentioned this before the game, so maybe it sticks in the short term. Although, not winning today probably isn't going to help. Leave Stuckey on the wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:50 pm
  • Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Wednesday
    Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Bucks.

    Advice: It's a home game for the Kings, so they'll give their fans a look at the youth today. Georgios Papagiannis had a productive weekend on the road and should be looking at minutes in the 20s. He's a sneaky guy to use in fantasy, especially with how the Kings are giving him the ball. Koufos is not worth owning in most fantasy leagues anymore. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:46 pm
  • Ty Lawson, Kosta Koufos resting Wednesday
    Ty Lawson and Kosta Koufos will both be rested for Wednesday's game vs. Milwaukee.

    Advice: Darren Collison and Langston Galloway should pick up extra minutes with Lawson out of the picture, while Koufos' absence opens things up for Georgios Papagiannis, Willie Cauley-Stein and Skal Labissiere. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:44 pm
  • Jeff Green (back) will not play Wednesday
    Coach Frank Vogel said that Jeff Green (back spasms) has been ruled out of Wednesday night's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: This will be just the third game Green has missed all season. However, he has apparently played through back spasms intermittently. Green had been averaging 17.5 minutes per game off the Magic's bench in March. Mario Hezonja will likely soak up the majority of the extra minutes available on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:14 am
  • Tyler Ennis returned to action on Tuesday March 21. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:20 am
  • Allen Crabbe plays 31 minutes in loss
    Allen Crabbe came off the bench and played 31 minutes on Tuesday, finishing with 11 points, five rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer on 4-of-11 shooting.

    Advice: Crabbe's not a must-own player, averaging just 9.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on 36 percent shooting over his last five games. But he's also averaging 30 minutes a night over that stretch and can get hot at any time. If he starts seeing his shots drop, he might be worth grabbing in case he's getting ready to go on a run. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:00 pm
  • Report: David Nwaba to sign 2-year deal w/ LA
    David Nwaba is reportedly finalizing a two-year deal with the Lakers.

    Advice: Nwaba will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Clippers, but that doesn't mean much as he's averaging just 3.6 points, 2.0 boards and not much else on 48.1 percent shooting with the Lakers this season. The second year of his contract will reportedly be a team option for Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:04 pm
  • Tyler Ennis (shoulder) available to play Tues
    Tyler Ennis (left shoulder) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Ennis tweaked his shoulder during Monday's practice, but it's not going to be something that forces him to the sidelines. That being said, Ennis has been a non-factor in the rotation as of late, so whether he plays or not will be irrelevant in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:19 am
  • Larry Nance could eventually start for LAL
    Larry Nance could eventually move into the starting lineup this season.

    Advice: Luke Walton confirmed on Monday that he will be rolling with a starting five of Jordan Clarkson, D'Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac for Tuesday night's matchup with the Clippers, but he wouldn't commit to using that starting group long-term. If Nance eventually finds himself in the starting lineup, that would likely shift either Randle or Zubac to the second unit. Nance can be a sneaky top-60 play when given the minutes, but as a reserve, he's not much more than a low-end option in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:13 am
  • Gerald Henderson ruled out Monday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) will not play on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Henderson will no longer play in both games of back-to-back sets, but they only have one more back-to-back set remaining on the schedule. Hendo has been battling through hip soreness, so he could be a shut-down candidate down the stretch. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Robert Covington will log heavy minutes on the wings, but Justin Anderson could see a nice bump as well. Henderson belongs on the wire in most formats. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:47 pm
  • Tyler Ennis tweaks left shoulder at practice
    Tyler Ennis tweaked his left shoulder during Monday's practice and he'll be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

    Advice: Ennis wasn't able to finish the scrimmage portion of Monday's practice following the shoulder tweak, so there's a chance he could be forced to the sidelines on Tuesday night. That being said, Ennis has been a negligible part of the rotation over the past three, so his potential absence from the rotation won't have any real consequences in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:15 pm
  • Bobby Portis expected to come off the bench
    Bobby Portis is expected to come off the bench again on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: He scored a career-high 22 points off the bench against the Jazz on Saturday with five rebounds and a triple in 31 minutes, but regardless of who starts at PF, coach Fred Hoiberg will usually ride the hot hand in the fourth quarter. Portis was brutal in his previous six games with averages of 7.3 points and 6.2 rebounds on 39 percent shooting, but he said he was thinking too much and wasn't playing the game the right way. "I feel like the last couple games, I was just kind of hesitant to shoot," he said. "I've got to get that out of my system. I've got to, when the shot is available, just take it. I worry too much about shooting too much." We're not ready to add him after one solid game, but feel free to put him on your watch list to see if he can keep it going Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:09 am
  • David Nwaba does well in 22 minutes
    David Nwaba scored seven points with five rebounds and a steal in 22 minutes off the bench Sunday against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: The Cal Poly product is getting a look for the Lakers, as they see if he is a player in their plans for 2017-18. He has a pretty decent stroke, but he doesn't do any one thing particularly well to help fantasy owners outside of the deepest leagues right now. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:25 pm
  • Corey Brewer grabs nine rebounds Sunday
    Corey Brewer scored nine points with nine rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss against Cleveland.

    Advice: Brewer had his best game in months, but it is still unlikely to move the needle for most fantasy owners. He is nothing more than a depth play in deeper fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:23 pm
  • Larry Nance doesn't do much for encore
    Larry Nance finished with just five points and two rebounds in 14 minutes off the bench on Sunday against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Nance had a strong game on Friday with 13 points, four rebounds and four steals, but he was very quiet on offense and not nearly as active on the defensive end, either. Nance drew plenty of contact Friday, getting to the line for seven free throw attempts, but he didn't get to the stripe once on Sunday. Chalk it up as just one poor outing, or perhaps he was feeling a bit fatigued. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:20 pm
  • Noah Vonleh hits 10+ pts in 3rd straight game
    Noah Vonleh logged 29 minutes during Sunday's impressive road win, chipping in 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: Vonleh has now scored double-digit points in three straight games, something he's never done before in his NBA career. The low-usage forward is getting it done thanks to extreme efficiency, connecting on 72.2 percent of his shot attempts during his double-digit streak. There are higher-upside guys on the vast majority of waiver wires. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 6:42 pm
  • Hendo scores nine points vs. Boston
    Gerald Henderson scored nine points with three rebounds and one assist against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: He did play some clutch minutes in this game and being the team's best free throw shooter this season helps his case. Still, the 76ers won't be playing him big minutes to get a longer look at their young guys. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 1:13 pm
  • Gerald Henderson is probable for Sunday
    Gerald Henderson is probable for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He's still dealing with some left hip soreness, the same hip he had surgery on in 2015. With Justin Anderson (illness) out Sunday, Hendo could pick up a few extra minutes off the bench. Don't be surprised if he's rested on Monday vs. the Magic, though. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 8:19 am
  • Bobby Portis scores a career-high 22 points
    Bobby Portis scored a career-high 22 points off the bench against the Jazz on Saturday, adding five rebounds and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

    Advice: Uhh, what? Portis was terrible coming into this game and that's why he came off the bench after starting every other game this month. Portis' defense was non-existent in his recent games and he only scored 5.3 points per game in his previous three. He will be coming off the bench the next time out and will continue to share minutes with Nikola Mirotic. Coach Fred Hoiberg will ride the hot hand, so this will be a very annoying fantasy situation -- the Bulls have the most inconsistent rotation in the NBA right now. We'd like to see Portis do it a couple more times before adding him. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 9:28 pm
  • Noah Vonleh posts a double-double
    Noah Vonleh scored 10 points with 11 rebounds and five turnovers in 27 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Advice: He may be playing his best ball of the season and turned in his first double-double of his third-year campaign. Vonleh is still just 21 and he did slide in the 2014 draft because he was raw, so maybe better days are ahead. That said, there's very little reason to add him in fantasy unless you're streaming on a light night. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 6:21 pm
  • Allen Crabbe scores 16 points
    Allen Crabbe scored 16 points with three rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Advice: The Hawks struggled to pick Crabbe up in transition to help the Blazers pull ahead early. Crabbe's playing time hasn't changed too much with Evan Turner missing time, but he has hit the mid-30s more often because that's how coach Terry Stotts rolls. Crabbe has been a mid-round guy, but his upside isn't the greatest and he is kind of Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 6:10 pm
  • Bobby Portis back to the bench
    Bobby Portis will move back to the bench against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: Nikola Mirotic is on one of his heaters while Portis has not been able to string together games since a solid finish to his first half. He should see minutes tonight, but it likely won't be more than minutes in the teens. He's a drop candidate. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 4:21 pm
  • Kosta Koufos scores nine points
    Kosta Koufos scored nine points with six rebounds, two assists and one block in 23 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: He is playing through a right hand injury and does have two fingers taped. According to the Kings broadcast, Koufos said he is going to have to play through it for a month or so. Perhaps this will be a reason to hold Koufos out of games as the season winds down. With Georgios Papagiannis turning in his best game as a pro, we'll likely be seeing Koufos' playing time start to fade. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 2:40 pm
  • Larry Nance plays well in loss
    Larry Nance racked up 13 points with four rebounds, two assists, four steals and two turnovers in 28 minutes vs. the Bucks on Friday.

    Advice: The Lakers were missing Tarik Black (illness), so Nance picked up a few extra minutes as a small-ball center. He shot 3-of-6 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line, but he's been quiet this month with averages of 6.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.9 steals in his previous seven games. He's just a deep-league asset for his steals right now, but keep tonight's line in mind if Black misses more time. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 10:57 pm
  • Jeff Green scores just two points
    Jeff Green made 1-of-9 from the field for two points with eight rebounds, one assist and one turnover against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: This is totally unacceptable on St. Patrick's Day. Anyway, Green just doesn't have fantasy value when the Magic are healthy up front. He doesn't even have much when players are out. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 10:55 pm
