  • DeMarre Carroll keeps rolling in win vs. DET
    DeMarre Carroll had 16 points, five rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers and one steal in 34 minutes of action on Sunday.

    Advice: This gives Carroll a season-high seven consecutive games in double-digits, matching his longest streak since 2016 with the Raptors. He's been terrific since missing a pair of games in mid-January, averaging 17.0 points (51.8% FGs, 80.0% FTs), 2.2 triples, 7.6 boards, 2.2 assists and 1.8 steals. That's good enough for top-40 value in most formats, so keep riding him until he cools off. Rotoworld.com 14 minutes ago
  • Michael Beasley scores 17 points in 14 mins
    Michael Beasley struggled with foul trouble on Sunday but still came through with 17 points, one 3-pointer, one rebound, one assist and two turnovers in 14 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Beasley committed some silly fouls in this one, but he made up for that with efficiency, going 7-of-9 from the field and 2-of-2 from the charity stripe for a sterling 86.0 true shooting percentage. Beasley's minutes have been somewhat inconsistent since Tim Hardaway Jr. got back to the court, but he's still been effective with averages of 13.5 points, 4.3 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.2 blocks and 2.0 turnovers per game.

  • James Ennis (right calf) ruled out Monday
    James Ennis (right calf) will not play on Monday.

    Advice: Ben McLemore and Wayne Selden are the winners here, especially if Mario Chalmers (shoulder) and Dillon Brooks (illness) can't suit up. We're considering Ennis day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:20 pm
     
  • JaMychal Green (ankle) out Monday vs. Sixers
    JaMychal Green (right ankle) will not play vs. Philly on Monday.

    Advice: The Grizzlies' injury report is a mess. Andrew Harrison (shoulder) is probable, Jarell Martin (left hand), Dillon Brooks (illness) and Mario Chalmers (shoulder) are questionable, while Chandler Parsons (knee) and James Ennis III (calf) are out. Mike Conley is also still out, of course, and fantasy owners relying on anyone from Memphis should monitor player news throughout Monday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:18 pm
     
  • Brandan Wright (illness) not on injury report
    Brandan Wright (illness) is not on the injury report for Monday's game.

    Advice: It sounds like Wright will be cleared to play vs. the Sixers, but whether he takes the court is another question -- he was a DNP-CD on Friday, and Deyonta Davis appears to have usurped his role entirely. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:10 pm
     
  • Courtney Lee scores 16 points w/ two triples
    Courtney Lee scored 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers, one rebound, two assists and one turnover in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Lee's ability to bring a little bit of everything to the stat sheet without hurting you in any one area is what's driving his mid-round evaluation on the season, and with very little depth on the wings in New York, he's not in much danger of losing minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:05 pm
  • Kenneth Faried (ankle) questionable Monday
    Kenneth Faried (left ankle soreness) is questionable to play Monday vs. the Trail Blazers.

    Advice: Faried is a negligible part of the rotation in Denver, so his playing status is irrelevant in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:30 pm
     
  • Bismack Biyombo invisible in 21 minutes
    Bismack Biyombo was nearly invisible in Sunday's win over the Celtics, finishing with just four points and three blocks over 21 minutes as a starter.

    Advice: This was the first time in Biyombo's career that he failed to grab a single rebound while logging at least 20 minutes of floor time, and this was easily his worst game since entering the starting lineup. That said, he's been quite good as a starter this season with averages of 9.1 points, 10.3 boards and 2.3 swats per contest on 56.3% shooting from the field and 87.9% from the stripe, so we'd anticipate a bounce-back performance on Tuesday against Sacramento. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:19 pm
  • Aaron Gordon goes 5-of-17 from the field
    Aaron Gordon's shooting woes continued on Sunday as he went just 5-of-17 from the field and 1-of-2 from the stripe on his way to 11 points, 13 boards, four assists and two turnovers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Gordon has been connecting on just 33.6% of his shot attempts over the past eight games, although he’s still been effective with averages of 16.5 points, 8.5 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.3 triples, 0.8 steals and 2.4 turnovers per game. We should see a regression to the mean with his jump shot soon enough, and the steals numbers should also start trending up as well. A favorable matchup against the Kings on Tuesday could help him to start moving in the right direction. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:12 pm
  • Evan Fournier nets 19 points with full line
    Evan Fournier helped Orlando earn their first win in Boston since 2011 on Sunday, tallying 19 points, three triples, three boards, three dimes, one steal, one block and one turnover in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Fournier was hot from start to finish in this one, and he helped the Magic go on a huge run during the third quarter to give Orlando a 19-point edge heading into the fourth. He's reportedly being pursued on the trade market by some playoff contenders, and he could certainly help a postseason team, but his fantasy value would be best served in Orlando. For what it's worth, he has said he's not asking for a trade. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:07 pm
  • Marcus Morris scores 12 points in 26 minutes
    Marcus Morris went 4-of-9 from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe on his way to 12 points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover through 27 minutes as a starter on Sunday.

    Advice: Morris did a nice job on defense against Aaron Gordon, and while there's not much disparity in his minutes based on whether he's starting or coming off the bench, he's just been better as a starter this season with averages of 12.0 points, 1.4 triples, 5.5 boards and 1.5 dimes per contest on 43.5% shooting. He should get another start on Tuesday against the small-ball Lakers. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:49 pm
  • Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) ruled out Sunday
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) will not play on Sunday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: This is his second game in a row on the shelf, but at least he wasn't ruled out a full day before this time. With KCP and Lonzo Ball out, we should see plenty of Josh Hart and Jordan Clarkson in a favorable matchup. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:49 am
  • Zeller has progressed to individual drills
    Cody Zeller (knee surgery) has progressed to some individual drills.

    Advice: He hasn’t been cleared for 5-on-5 activity yet and there's no timetable for when that will happen. Zeller underwent surgery to repair a torn meniscus back on Dec. 12 and was given a 6-week timetable, but it doesn't sound like we'll see him return in January. If the Hornets tank down the stretch and reduce Dwight Howard's workload, Zeller could have some value. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:34 am
    Injured
     
  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is probable Monday
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (left foot strain) is listed as probable for Monday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: January has been MKG's best month yet with averages of 12.3 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 0.9 steals in 26.0 minutes, and he has played 28+ minutes in three out of his last four games. We'll confirm his status hopefully after the morning shootaround, but he's a low-end player to own in standard leagues. Don't be surprised if the Hornets shop his contract at the deadline. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:30 am
  • Kevin Love (illness) sits out practice
    Kevin Love (illness) did not practice on Sunday.

    Advice: He's still not feeling well and was held to three minutes on Saturday without any stats. He does have another 48+ hours to recover, so hopefully he'll be ready to roll vs. the Spurs. Coach Tyronn Lue did say he wants to get Love more touches, but his value has been trending in the wrong direction since Isaiah Thomas got back. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:30 am
    GTD
     
  • Marcus Morris will start vs. Magic
    Marcus Morris will start vs. the Magic on Sunday.

    Advice: He might be looking at a few extra minutes as well, as Aron Baynes (illness) is still considered questionable. Morris has been playing better lately with 15.0 points, 7.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 2.0 triples over his last three games, so he's a streaming option on a four-game slate. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:25 am
  • Lue says he needs to get Love more touches
    Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said he needs to get Kevin Love more touches.

    Advice: "Whoever has it going or whoever is open should get the basketball, so it’s really not an option thing," Lue said. "Kevin’s been great all year and we got to continue to get him touches and continue to feature him, no matter who’s on the floor." His usage rate drops from 26.6 to 20.2 with Isaiah Thomas on the floor, so his value is trending in the wrong direction. Lue has talked about getting Love more touches many times this season, so take his comments with a grain of salt until it actually happens. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:03 am
    GTD
     
  • DeAndre Liggins signs another 10-day deal
    DeAndre Liggins has signed another 10-day deal with the Pelicans.

    Advice: He has only played in one game so far with four points, one rebound and one assist in 11 minutes. You should stop playing fantasy basketball if he's on your roster. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:49 am
  • Ed Davis gets 24 minutes
    Ed Davis played 24 minutes with six points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 24 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

    Advice: He stepped up with Jusuf Nurkic getting into some foul trouble, but there's not much else to this here. Davis is only a handcuff and he probably wouldn't get a big bump anyway. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:21 pm
     
  • Wesley Matthews posts team-high 23 points
    Wesley Matthews finished Saturday's loss at Portland with a team-high 23 points over 38 minutes.

    Advice: Matthews hit 7-of-15 from the field, including 3-of-9 from behind the 3-point line, while adding 6-of-8 from the charity stripe. He also added five rebounds, two assists and a steal while turning it over twice. January has easily been his best month of the season, as he is averaging 16.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steals per game in eight outings in the month. As such, he is a sell-high candidate, as it's likely the team will start playing some of its younger talent more down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Andrew Wiggins scores season-high 29 points
    Andrew Wiggins scored a season-high 29 points during a 115-109 win over the Raptors on Saturday, adding five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

    Advice: He shot the ball well with his 11-of-21 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line. Wiggins also pulled down two huge rebounds late in the game to help the Wolves snap their two-game losing streak. It's not really a surprise that Wiggins blew up because Jimmy Butler (knee) didn't play. It doesn't sound like Jimmy will be out long, so this strong game doesn't really change Wiggins' outlook. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Harrison Barnes pulls down 10 boards
    Harrison Barnes finished Saturday's game at Portland with eight points, 10 rebounds and a blocked shot over 35 minutes.

    Advice: Barnes had an ugly 3-of-13 performance from the floor, and he was 0-of-4 from behind the 3-point line to snap an 11-game streak with at least one triple. It was also his first single-digit performance in 23 outings dating back to Dec. 2. Chalk it up as just one poor outing. He'll look to get back on track Monday night against Washington, the first of a four-game schedule in the upcoming week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:55 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica scores eight points in start
    Nemanja Bjelica scored eight points with six rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: It wasn't a huge game, but this works. Although, the last time Bjelica started at small forward he put up 24 points, eight boards, three dimes, three steals and five 3-pointers in 41 minutes. We don't know the extent of Jimmy Butler's injury yet, but it doesn't sound serious and his right knee hasn't given him problems in years. Bjelica is more of a deep add for now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:51 pm
  • Muhammad scores seven in 12 minutes
    Shabazz Muhammad scored seven points with two rebounds in 12 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: He seems to be behind both Marcus Georges-Hunt and Nemanja Bjelica to help fill the void left on the wing. Muhammad isn't really worth adding in almost any league. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 20 points vs. Wolves
    DeMar DeRozan scored 20 points with three rebounds, five assists, one block, three steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

    Advice: The 3-pointers are back with five attempts and several of them coming on a high degree of difficulty. DeRozan had missed his previous 11 attempts from deep over his last four, but he still managed to make at least 44 percent from the field in all of those. He's also been dropping dimes like a clumsy toll booth attendant with 5.7 per game in his previous January games. He's not just a scorer anymore. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 pm
     
  • Nice double-double for Derrick Favors
    Derrick Favors ended up with 14 points and 12 rebounds over 32 minutes in Saturday's 125-113 victory against the Clippers.

    Advice: Favors hit 5-of-10 from the field while picking up three assist and a steal, and he had a game-best plus-18 rating. He is available, and some teams have called to ask about him, and performances like this will certainly help improve his stock and appeal. He remains a hold in standard leagues, but his short-term outlook is a bit murky. It might be best for his fantasy value if he remains in Salt Lake. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Luc Mbah a Moute scores 14 points in start
    Luc Mbah a Moute scored 14 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: P.J. Tucker also chipped in with 12 points. These two filled in nicely for Trevor Ariza, but Ariza will be back after his two-game suspension ended following the game. Mbah a Moute could still find minutes around 24, but he's not much of a fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • JaMychal Green (ankle) will not return
    JaMychal Green (right ankle) will not return to Saturday's game against the Pelicans.

    Advice: He suffered the injury much earlier in the game, but he wasn't ruled out until the fourth quarter. Hopefully, this injury isn't going to cost him too much time, but getting ruled out in a close game is discouraging. Green's bad injury earlier this year was to his right knee. He finished with eight points, a season-high 16 rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes. Jarell Martin and Ivan Rabb will be filling in for him tonight with Martin being worthy of a speculative add in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:57 pm
     
  • Nemanja Bjelica starting for Jimmy Butler
    Nemanja Bjelica is starting for Jimmy Butler against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: It's been a while since we've seen Bjelica play small forward and he's had some big games in that role. The Wolves have a massive hole to fill on Jimmy, so Bjelica may be a speculative add in deeper leagues. Expect more Tyus Jones and Shabazz Muhammad to help out, too. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:13 pm
  • Kevin Love doesn't return vs. OKC
    Kevin Love did not return from his illness on Saturday, finishing with no stats in three minutes.

    Advice: It was obvious he wasn't feeling well, so it would've been nice to have been given a heads up. Love was struggling since Isaiah Thomas returned, so this ugly stat line opens his buy-low window even more because of how it will skew his value. Although, the Cavs may have to think about starting Tristan Thompson after they were crushed inside. The Cavs are off until Tuesday, so Love should be ready for that one. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:12 pm
    GTD
     
  • Kevin Love (illness) questionable to return
    Kevin Love (illness) is questionable to return against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: The ABC broadcast said Love wasn't feeling well with about 10 minutes left in the second quarter and the team now says he's questionable just a few minutes later. Love had a couple ugly shots and he didn't look well on the bench, so it's possible he doesn't return. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:26 pm
    GTD
     
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope questionable vs. NYK
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) is questionable against the Knicks on Sunday.

    Advice: The team ruled him out a day in advance for Friday's game, so there's a decent chance he's a game-time call tomorrow. Plus, he went through some activities at practice on Saturday. Caldwell-Pope's injury doesn't sound serious, but it's worth a mention that his Achilles has bothered him in his career before this issue. If he's out, Josh Hart and Corey Brewer figure to pick up more wing minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:03 pm
  • Brandan Wright (illness) ruled out Saturday
    Brandan Wright (illness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Wright, who had missed three straight games, was available to return Friday. However, he was a DNP-CD. Now he's back on the inactive list. Wright, who hasn't logged more than 15 minutes in a game since December 26th, should be left on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:01 am
     
  • James Ennis (right calf) ruled out Saturday
    James Ennis (right calf) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: This will be the second straight game Ennis has missed. Chandler Parsons (illness, right knee soreness) has also been ruled out and Ben McLemore (knee soreness) is listed as questionable, so the Grizz could be left with little depth on the wing on Saturday. Dillon Brooks will again be asked to log major minutes and could be looking at another big scoring night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:00 am
     
  • Courtney Lee makes FTs, brings defense
    Courtney Lee scored 18 points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: He made all four from the line to get him to 50 straight makes, which is already a franchise record and is just three shy of Stephen Curry's 53 for the most this season. Lee also played really well on defense and his playing time isn't going anywhere. He's been a draft-day steal as he continues to flirt with top-50 value in standard leagues. Although, he is a bit of a sell-high player because he's basically topping out on potential. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:42 pm
  • Derrick Favors takes a hit with Gobert back
    Derrick Favors scored seven points with seven rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 27 minutes against the Knicks on Friday.

    Advice: His on/off splits with Rudy Gobert have some stark differences, so his fantasy owners should expect him to take a noticeable dip on the stat sheet. Favors should still be able to be around 13 and eight with some defensive stats. He's still a hold in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:05 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll scores 26 points in victory
    DeMarre Carroll matched his career-high 26 points during a 101-95 win over the Heat on Friday, adding six rebounds, one assist, one block, two steals and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: It's his fifth 20-point game of the season and he's also scored in double figures for six straight. Carroll did have a mild tweak to his right knee, but he obviously looked fine. He also closed as the power forward in this game, which will be important for him because of D'Angelo Russell getting in the mix to take wing minutes away. The needle doesn't move too much on Carroll here because DAR's return may hurt his playing time, so he's more of a hold than anything else. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:32 pm
  • Brandan Wright picks up a DNP-CD
    Brandan Wright picked up a DNP-CD on Friday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: He was "available" to play, but he's not in the rotation right now. Deyonta Davis will continue backing up Marc Gasol and we don't see why Memphis would go away from that. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:10 pm
     
  • Brandan Wright (illness) is available
    Brandan Wright (illness) is available to play on Friday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: He's been out of the rotation and Marc Gasol (illness) is playing, so Wright isn't a lock to see the floor. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:12 pm
     
  • Brandan Wright (illness) doubtful for Friday
    Brandan Wright (illness) was unable to participate in shootaround and is "likely doubtful" for Friday's game vs. Sacramento.

    Advice: Minimal fantasy impact here, as Wright has missed three straight games and hasn't logged more than 15 minutes in a game since December 26th. Also, Marc Gasol (illness) is expected to play Friday night. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:13 am
     
  • Luc Mbah a Moute scores 14 points in start
    Luc Mbah a Moute made a start for Trevor Ariza (suspension) on Thursday, scoring 14 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: His playing time may have been a little higher than this, but the Rockets went with a more traditional lineup against a bigger Wolves team for most of the fourth. Expect Mbah a Moute to play around 35 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday, so he will be on the board as a DFS punt play or as a streamer. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:08 pm
  • Kevin Love taking a hit from IT?
    Kevin Love scored 12 points with 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Magic on Thursday.

    Advice: He has dropped off since Isaiah Thomas returned, averaging just 13.9 points, 7.1 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.0 treys on 39.8 percent from the field in those eight. Love's usage rate has dropped to 20.1 in his minutes with Isaiah Thomas, which is way down from his 26.6 without him. While Love may take a small hit, he really shouldn't be this bad. Consider him as a buy-low player who is fully capable of being an early-round guy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:40 pm
    GTD
     
  • Aaron Gordon scores 17 with 11 boards
    Aaron Gordon scored 17 points during a 104-103 loss to the Cavs on Thursday, adding 11 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

    Advice: He did not start the second half, but he came in after just one minute into the third quarter -- you can feel free to guess why. Gordon has really struggled with his jumper since his return from injury on Dec. 28, making just 28.7 percent of his 115 attempts, which explains why he's made just 39.2 percent from the field over those 10. Either way, Gordon continues to fill it up and he should be able to climb into the mid-40s for FG% soon enough. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:32 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo puts up 4 and 10 with 2 blks
    Bismack Biyombo scored four points with 10 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 26 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

    Advice: It's one of his worst starts on the stat sheet, but his owners have nothing to complain about. In his last 11 starts, Biyombo has averaged 9.5 points, 11.3 boards, 2.2 blocks, 0.4 steals and 1.4 turnovers on 55.7 percent from the field and 87.1 percent from the line. Thanks to making those free throws, he's been top-30 player over this 11-game stretch. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:07 pm
  • Marcus Morris scores 14 points
    Marcus Morris scored 14 points with six rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the 76ers on Thursday.

    Advice: He took a shot to his nose in the first half and was bleeding, but Morris didn't need to go to the locker room after the training staff was able to patch him up. Unlike his brother Markieff in Washington, Marcus is playing well these days with with two strong games coming into this one, averaging 15.5 points, 8.0 boards, 2.0 dimes and 2.0 treys over his previous two. Still, he is likely going to have a back-to-back restriction and he doesn't offer much outside of scoring, so he's probably not a guy most 12-team owners should target. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:37 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) out Fri
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) is expected to sit out Friday's game vs. Indiana.

    Advice: KCP left Wednesday's game with a strained Achilles and it's not surprising to see him listed as 'out'. He did warm up prior to the second half on Wednesday, and we've yet to hear about an MRI, so hopefully it's nothing serious. Josh Hart has benefited the most when KCP misses time this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:19 pm
  • James Ennis (right calf) listed out Friday
    James Ennis (right calf) is listed as 'out' for Friday's game.

    Advice: Ennis logged 20 minutes vs. the Knicks on Wednesday but maybe he aggravated his calf injury in the process. His absence should open up more playing time for Wayne Selden, and maybe we'll see Ben McLemore back in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:12 pm
     
  • Woj: Derrick Favors is 'available'
    On ESPN's The Jump, Adrian Wojnarowski said that Derrick Favors is "available" and that teams are calling about him.

    Advice: Wojnarowski mentions the Cavaliers as a potential suitor, and it's no secret that they could use some rim protection -- they've also been linked to DeAndre Jordan. Favors has an expiring contract which is attractive to a team like Cleveland, and it makes sense for Jazz to entertain offers or he could simply walk as a free agent this summer. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:25 am
  • JaMychal Green posts 18 & 13 vs. Knicks
    JaMychal Green racked up 18 points, 13 rebounds (seven offensive), three assists, three 3-pointers and one steal in 27 minutes vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Marc Gasol and Brandan Wright were both away from the team recovering from illnesses, which left the frontcourt very thin. Green, Deyonta Davis and Jarell Martin all saw their roles increase as a result, and Green is quietly building up steam in January. He's averaging 12.0 points, 8.3 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.1 triples this month, and should only see his role expand down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:12 pm
     
  • James Ennis (calf) looks fine Wednesday
    James Ennis (calf) had four points on 2-of-6 shooting, three rebounds and three assists in a home win vs. the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ennis' availability was a rare bit of good injury news for Memphis, which was playing without Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, Chandler Parsons and Brandan Wright. He was coming off a pair of solid games but should still be viewed skeptically for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:10 pm
     
  • Courtney Lee sets Knicks' free-throw record
    Courtney Lee made 6-of-11 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs on Wednesday, scoring 18 points with two 3-pointers, three rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes.

    Advice: In the process, Lee set a Knicks record by making 46 consecutive free throws. He's tops in the NBA at 96.1 percent from the stripe, and the only bad news is that he doesn't get there often with 1.8 attempts per game. He's been a sneaky mid-round fantasy value this season but could fade if New York commits to playing young guys more late in the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:00 pm
  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist racks up 21 points
    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist dropped 21 points in just 23 minutes on Wednesday, making 8-of-11 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs with four rebounds, three steals and two assists.

    Advice: MKG is surging with double-digit points in six of his past seven games, and coach Steve Clifford had nothing but praise for him after tonight's game. "[MKG's] having such a good year," he said. "He's playing so well on both sides of the ball. He's playing efficiently and intelligently on offense." His minutes had crept into the 30-32 range prior to this blowout, and he's a solid pickup if he's still available in shallower leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:29 pm
  • Josh Hart starts 3Q for Caldwell-Pope
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) will not return on Wednesday.

    Advice: It'll be Josh Hart starting the second half at shooting guard. KCP tried to give it a go in warmups before the third quarter, but he didn't feel right. It's worth a mention KCP had a right Achilles issue back in 2015, so there's a very good chance he needs to miss time. Hart is worth a speculative add in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:22 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope goes to locker room
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles strain) went to the locker room in the first half on Wednesday and is questionable to return.

    Advice: He got tangled up with Russell Westbrook and went straight to the locker room. Caldwell-Pope was able to limp to the locker room under his own power, but he was in pain as he went back there. Josh Hart would benefit if KCP is out. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:59 pm
  • James Ennis is available to play
    James Ennis (calf) is available to play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was called questionable to play on Tuesday from what was likely an injury on Monday. He should come off the bench and could be looking at minutes around 20. Ennis isn't worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:08 pm
     
  • Brandan Wright will not play due to illness
    Brandan Wright (illness) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been out of the rotation anyway, so the Grizzlies won't miss him too much. Although, not having Marc Gasol (illness) means Deyonta Davis should have some extended run heading his way tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:23 pm
     
  • Evan Fournier hasn't asked for a trade
    Evan Fournier said he has not asked the Magic for a trade.

    Advice: There really haven't been many rumors on Fournier, but the Magic continue to slide in the standings. "I’m not going to think about what’s going to happen or where I would enjoy playing or something, because it’s all speculation," Fournier said. His fantasy owners will certainly want him to stay with the Magic, assuming there's no cautious shutdown. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:30 pm
  • Derrick Favors could be an option for CLE
    Derrick Favors could be a potential trade target for the Cavs, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Advice: Cleveland is looking to add some size, and Favors is available, so it'll be interesting to see if anything becomes of this report. Favors value in Cleveland would depend on the moving pieces, but it's tough to see him improving his stock with the Cavs. He's also been linked to the Bulls, but his value would likely take a hit there if they didn't also move Robin Lopez. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:30 am
  • Evan Fournier scores career-high 32 points
    Evan Fournier went off for a career-high 32 points in Tuesday's win over the Wolves, hitting 12-of-22 shots and 2-of-2 free throws.

    Advice: He also matched a career-high with six triples, adding three assists and two rebounds in 35 minutes. Fournier is off to a slow start in January with averages of 14.0 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.3 triples prior to tonight, so hopefully this performance will get him going. He gets a matchup with the Cavaliers on Thursday, a team that has allowed 118+ points in four out of their last five games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:40 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo double-doubles w/ 5 blocks
    Bismack Biyombo dominated the Wolves with 10 points, 16 rebounds (six offensive), two assists, one steal and five blocks in a 108-102 win on Tuesday.

    Advice: That's his 17th career game with five or more blocks and his second of the season (he also had five blocks on Dec. 26). Biyombo has been dominant over his last three games with 15.0 points, 12.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocks, and while he'll continue to eat while Nikola Vucevic (hand) is out, the Magic will have a tough decision on their hands around the trade deadline -- Vucevic is on the books for $12.7 million next season and could be a trade candidate with Orlando looking at another lost season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:30 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica ejected Tuesday night
    Nemanja Bjelica was ejected in the second quarter of Tuesday's game vs. Orlando after getting into an altercation with Arron Afflalo.

    Advice: Both players received double technical fouls after jawing at one another earlier in the quarter. Then, a few minutes later, Afflalo threw a right-handed punch to Bjelica's face. Gorgui Dieng could see a few extra minutes in the second half of Tuesday's contest with Bjelica out of the game. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:52 pm
  • James Ennis (calf) questionable for Wednesday
    James Ennis (right calf) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

    Advice: This is the first we're hearing of a calf issue for Ennis, but we'll have a better idea on his status based on what he can do at Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he's out, his minutes will likely be divvied up between Dillon Brooks and Jarell Martin. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:03 pm
     
  • Luc Mbah a Moute returned to action on Monday January 15. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:30 am
  • Mbah a Moute and Tarik Black are available
    Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) and Tarik Black (eye) are available on Monday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: He's been out for about a month and was averaging 6.8 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 25.3 minutes before the injury, but he'll more than likely have some restrictions for a bit. He's only worth keeping an eye on in very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:03 pm
  • James Ennis plays well for Memphis
    James Ennis hit 4-of-6 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 21 minutes of Monday's win over the Lakers.

    Advice: Ennis had 12 points, five boards, a block and two 3-pointers in his previous game, making him worth a watchful eye right now. But Chandler Parsons should be back from his knee injury soon, which could hurt him. And even if Parsons remains out, Ennis would only be a deep-league option at this point. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:45 pm
     
  • JaMychal Green just missed double-double
    JaMychal Green hit 4-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, nine rebounds and one assist in Monday's 123-114 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: Green went off for 20 points, 14 rebounds, two steals and a block last Wednesday, then had a five-point dud on Friday before playing fairly well today. He's not going to do much besides score and rebound, and he doesn't exactly destroy those categories, but he's playing well enough to be given a look in most leagues if you're desperate for a big man. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:34 pm
     
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hits six triples, 27
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit 8-of-16 shots, 6-of-10 3-pointers and 5-of-5 free throws for 27 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in 33 minutes

    Advice: This was KCP's second highest scoring night of the season and he's scored in double figures in eight straight games. His legal situation that was holding him out of road games is finally behind him and he's playing very aggressively right now. He should be owned everywhere. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:18 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll scores 22 points in home loss
    DeMarre Carroll went for 22 points with eight rebounds, three assists and a steal over 30 minutes in Monday's 119-104 loss against the Nets.

    Advice: Carroll was 6-of-13 from the field, including 2-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, and the 'Junkyard Dog' posted career highs with free-throws made (eight) and attempts (nine). Carroll is averaging 16.0 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 2.3 steals per game over his past three outings. He remains a solid source of cheap boards, steals and triples for most fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:26 pm
  • Michael Beasley strong off the bench
    Michael Beasley finished with 23 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots in 29 minutes off the bench Monday at Brooklyn.

    Advice: Beasley hit 10-of-18 from the field, including 1-of-1 from behind the arc, while adding 2-of-3 from the charity stripe. He also turned it over just three times while contributing a solid plus-12 rating. Beasley bounced back rather nicely after a scoreless effort against New Orleans in just nine minutes Sunday. His fantasy arrow has been point down lately with some erratic performances in the end of December, but this game marked his fourth time hitting 20 or more points in the past six outings and he remains a useful fantasy asset in most formats for his scoring. He was seeing more run with Tim Hardaway Jr. resting, so if you dropped Beasley, don't feel bad. Hardaway Jr. is expected to return Wednesday, limiting Beasley's minutes. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:07 pm
  • Luc Mbah a Moute expected to play Monday
    Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) is expected to play Monday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: He's been out for a month, so if he is able to get out there tonight, he'll likely be dealing with a minutes limit. Mbah a Moute isn't worth owning in most leagues, but he could take away some minutes from P.J. Tucker once he's fully up to speed. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:02 pm
  • Courtney Lee sets franchise record Monday
    Courtney Lee hit his only free-throw attempt Monday in Brooklyn to tie the team's all-time mark for consecutive free throws made at 44, equaling the record set by Chris Duhon.

    Advice: Lee finished with 10 points on 4-of-11 shooting, including 1-of-2 from behind the arc, while chipping in with two assists, a rebound and a blocked shot. He is also working on a 14-game streak with at least one 3-pointer dating back to Dec. 18. Lee continues to be a decent fantasy asset in 9-cat leagues, particularly when Tim Hardaway Jr. is not on the court. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:49 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 24 points in loss
    DeMar DeRozan went 8-of-18 from the field and 8-of-9 from the stripe on his way to 24 points, five dimes, one rebound, two steals and three turnovers in 35 minutes in Monday's loss to the 76ers.

    Advice: DeRozan is hitting career-highs in triples (1.2), dimes (5.0), and FG% (48.2) this season, to go with averages of 25.4 points, 4.2 boards and 1.1 steals per game, which translates to top-30 value in 9-cat leagues. Toronto currently sits just four games out of the No. 1 spot out East, and it looks like they’ll be battling Boston and Cleveland for seeding, so we wouldn't expect DeRozan to get hit with random rest days down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:57 pm
     
  • Nemanja Bjelica productive off Wolves' bench
    Nemanja Bjelica had another productive game on Sunday, coming off the bench with five points, five rebounds, one 3-pointer and one assist in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Tom Thibodeau had nothing but praise for Bjelica after Friday's game, when he scored 10 points on 4-of-4 shooting. "When [Bjelica] plays the small forward position, it makes us real long," he said. "The 3-point shooting is obviously something we need and it opens up the floor. He complements all of our players well, the starters and the bench guys." Thibs' high praise aside, Bjelica isn't a standard-league asset while the Wolves' frontcourt is healthy. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:19 pm
  • Courtney Lee hits 3-of-10 shots for 10 points
    Courtney Lee went just 3-of-10 from the field during Sunday's overtime loss to the Pelicans, finishing with seven points, one 3-pointer, two rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Lee suffered from some suffocating defense from Jrue Holiday, but he’s also just been less involved in the offense since Tim Hardaway Jr. returned to the court. In the two games since THJ has gotten back out there, Lee’s usage has dipped to 15.0, so it looks like his value will take a bit of a hit once Hardaway Jr. is fully up to speed. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:02 pm
  • Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) could play Monday
    Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) is scheduled to practice on Sunday and if all goes well, he'll return to the court for Monday's game against the Clippers.

    Advice: Mbah a Moute has spent the past month on the sidelines, but it sounds like there's a good chance he'll be getting back to the court on Monday. He'll likely be dealing with a minutes limit for his first handful of games, but once he's fully up to speed, he could siphon away some playing time from P.J. Tucker. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:06 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 42 points vs. Warriors
    The Raptors mounted a furious comeback attempt on Saturday, ultimately falling 127-125 despite DeMar DeRozan's game-high 42 points on 17-of-31 FGs and 8-of-10 FTs.

    Advice: DeRozan was phenomenal but Toronto's defense was the issue, as they gave up 81 points in the first half and trailed by as many as 27 points tonight. He added five rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 38 minutes, with a huge usage rate in the absence of Kyle Lowry (tailbone). As a footnote, DeRozan's big game tonight also pushed him past Vince Carter as the Raptors' all-time leader in games with 30+ points (92 games). He's surging as a top-20 value over the past month. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:11 pm
     
  • Double-double for DeMarre Carroll
    DeMarre Carroll finished Saturday's game at Washington with 13 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals across 33 minutes.

    Advice: Carroll finished 6-of-13 from the field, including 1-of-6 from behind the arc, while he was able to post his second double-double in five January outings. That's now five double-doubles in 2017-18, which is a new career high in a single season. Carroll has managed just five total double-doubles over his past three seasons (2014-17) combined. He looked much better than he did Friday in Atlanta, as he made his way back from a two-game absence due to a knee injury. Carroll remains a decent source of cheap rebounds, steals and 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:49 pm
  • Harrison Barnes scores 17 points w/ 2 steals
    Harrison Barnes scored 17 points on 7-of-21 shooting Saturday to go with one 3-pointer, five rebounds, three assists, two steals and one turnover in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Barnes got off to a sluggish start in this one, but he really started to get going during crunch time, rocking a 37.0 usage rate during the fourth quarter and banking in a tough shot with six seconds left in regulation to send the game into overtime. The shooting wasn't pretty, but we'd expect a more efficient outing on Tuesday in Denver. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:33 pm
  • Wesley Matthews scores 17 points w/ three 3s
    Wesley Matthews drained another three triples on Saturday, on his way to 17 points, four assists, one rebound and zero turnovers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Matthews has been rolling over the past few weeks, flirting with top-50 value in 9-cat leagues behind averages of 15.1 points, 3.4 dimes, 2.6 triples and just 0.7 turnovers per contest on 45.9% shooting from the field and 83.3% from the charity stripe. This is probably going to be the high water mark for Matthews this season, as his playing time could begin to dwindle after the All-Star break, so now would be good opportunity to try and sell-high on the 31-year-old swingman. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:09 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scores 17 points
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope went 5-of-8 from the field and 5-of-8 from the stripe on his way to 17 points, five boards, two 3-pointers and one turnover in 41 minutes on Saturday.

    Advice: Caldwell-Pope was quiet for much of the game, but he came through with some big shots in the clutch to keep the Lakers in the game. That said, KCP’s minutes have been rather sporadic lately, and the fact that his usage has dipped to 15.4 over the past six is concerning. The Lakers value his expiring contract more than his on-court contributions, so it wouldn’t be shocking to see him lose minutes to someone like Josh Hart through this second half of the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:18 pm
  • Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) a GTD on Monday
    Coach Mike D'Antoni said Luc Mbah a Moute (dislocated shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Monday's matchup vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: It's odd that D'Antoni has decided a player will be a GTD for a game that is still three days away; nonetheless, it's confirmation that Mbah a Moute is making solid progress and is very close to returning. Before getting injured, Mbah a Moute was averaging 6.8 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 25.3 minutes for the Rockets this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:19 am
  • DeMarre Carroll returned to action on Friday January 12. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:53 am
  • Michael Beasley plays 16 minutes
    Michael Beasley played 16 minutes with Tim Hardaway Jr. (leg) back in the the lineup on Friday vs. the Wolves, scoring 13 points with three assists, one rebound, one block and one triple.

    Advice: Coach Jeff Hornacek said that Beasley's minutes will take a hit with THJ back, as he will use Lance Thomas when he wants defense and Beasley when he needs a scoring punch. "I’m used to dramatic change. I’m used to ups and downs," Beasley said. "If anything happens to where I don’t play anymore, I can’t cry about it. Just got to look forward to tomorrow, get my work in, keep my conditioning up." He was trending up for a few weeks, but now his fantasy arrow is pointing down. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:39 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo goes for 21 and 13 in loss
    Bismack Biyombo erupted for a career-high 21 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, two blocked shots and a steal over 33 minutes in Friday's 125-119 loss at Washington.

    Advice: Biyombo was outstanding, hitting 8-of-9 from the field and 5-of-6 from the free-throw stripe. The Zaire native continues to be a decent fantasy option when the matchup is favorable, as he fills in for the injured Nikola Vucevic (hand). He'll have his hands full next time out on Tuesday night when Karl-Anthony Towns and the Timberwolves invade Orlando. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:36 pm
  • Double-double for Aaron Gordon in D.C.
    Aaron Gordon struggled with his shot Friday at Washington, but he was able to scratch out 14 points with 10 rebounds and seven assists.

    Advice: Gordon was a dismal 4-of-15 from the field, although he was still able to connect for 3-of-6 from behind the 3-point line while flirting with a triple-double. He was late for a team flight earlier in the week, benched in Dallas, and he just hasn't recovered in his two games back in the starting lineup. He is shooting just 8-of-33 (24.2 percent) over the past two outings. Still, the double-double was nice and remains a fantasy option in most formats through thick and thin. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:31 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll scores 13 points in return
    DeMarre Carroll (knee) returned from a two-game absence on Friday vs. the Hawks, scoring 13 points with four rebounds, three assists, four steals and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Needless to say, Carroll didn't look limited at all and the Nets felt comfortable enough to play him for 28 minutes -- that's a good sign considering how cautious they are. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported earlier this week that "teams are targeting the availability" of Carroll, but he may not lose a lot of value if he's moved because he's not a high-usage player anyways. If Carroll was dropped and you need steals, triples and boards, go pick him up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:40 pm
  • Kevin Love has strong game in road loss
    Kevin Love finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and a blocked shot across 36 minutes in Friday's 97-95 loss in Indiana.

    Advice: The Cavs are in a bit of a funk, but Love played well in this one. He was 8-of-14 from the field and a perfect 4-of-4 from the line while leading the team with a plus-9 rating. It was a much-needed good performance after he entered the game shooting just 12-of-43 (27.9 percent) from the floor over his past four outings. He'll look to continue the good work on MLK Day against the visiting Warriors. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:09 pm
    GTD
     
  • Derrick Favors struggles in return
    Derrick Favors (ankle) was quiet on offense in his return to action on Friday vs. the Hornets, scoring five points on 2-of-4 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Dwight Howard and the Hornets have allowed the second fewest fantasy points to centers this season, so the matchup didn't do him any favors. Rudy Gobert (knee) is scheduled to be re-evaluated later this weekend and the Jazz have been linked to Chicago's Nikola Mirotic, so Favors' rest-of-season outlook is a little bleak unless he is a part of any deal. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:50 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll starting, Harris to the bench
    DeMarre Carroll (knee) will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Hawks, sending Joe Harris back to the second unit.

    Advice: The Nets will roll out a starting five featuring Spencer Dinwiddie, Allen Crabbe, Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Tyler Zeller tonight, and it'll be interesting to see what Carroll's minutes look like tonight following his two-game absence. Harris isn't a very attractive target while working with the second unit, and Nik Stauskas figures to lose some minutes with Carroll back in action. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:00 pm
  • Derrick Favors (ankle) will start on Friday
    Updating a previous report, Derrick Favors (ankle) will be in the starting lineup for Friday's matchup with Charlotte.

    Advice: Favors only missed one game with the minor ankle issue, and there haven't been any reports of a minutes limit, so owners can feel free to throw him out there for tonight's game. Ekpe Udoh will return to the bench, and as a reserve, Udoh can't be considered a viable target in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:10 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll (knee) available to play Fri
    DeMarre Carroll (knee) will be available to play Friday against the Hawks.

    Advice: The Junkyard Dog should be back out there tonight for a matchup against his former team, which should shift Joe Harris back to the second unit. Carroll hasn't played well for a full month, so while he's likely to return to the court, he's not a great target in most settings. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:55 pm
  • Derrick Favors (ankle) will play on Friday
    Derrick Favors (ankle) will play Friday vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Favors missed Wednesday's game with the minor right ankle sprain, but he's a full four days off, so he should be good to go without any restrictions tonight. With Favors back in the mix, Ekpe Udoh will lose most of his value with the return to the second unit, and Jonas Jerebko won't play as much. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:33 pm
  • Beasley may see reduced role w/ THJ returning
    Michael Beasley may see a reduced role once Tim Hardaway Jr. returns to the Knicks lineup.

    Advice: Beasley has been a beast over the last month. In the 14 games the Knicks have played since Dec. 12, Beas is averaging 18.4 points, 7.4 rebounds, and 1.9 assists in just 25.3 minutes. However, with Tim Hardaway Jr. returning to the lineup as soon as this weekend, Beasley is expected to see his playing time drop, according to coach Jeff Hornaeck. "There were nights when Lance [Thomas] didn’t play. There were nights Mike didn’t play. So we’ll probably end up going back to that," said Hornacek. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:17 am
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope swipes five steals
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit 4-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, four rebounds, two assists and a season-high five steals in Thursday's win over the Spurs.

    Advice: A few of his steals came during key points in the game and he was a big reason the Lakers ended up winning in San Antonio. He's been a seventh-round player this season and his travel restriction is over, so make sure he's not available on your waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:11 pm
  • Kevin Love struggles again, plays 23 minutes
    Kevin Love had 10 points with nine rebounds, two assists and one turnover against the Raptors on Thursday.

    Advice: The Cavaliers were blown out for the second game in a row, so Love took an early seat along with Isaiah Thomas and LeBron James. Love is in a really bad slump right now, and if you take away his 27-point effort against Orlando he would have averages of 5.0 points on 4-of-26 shooting in his last three games. He'll bounce back and gets a great matchup on Friday vs. the Pacers to do so. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:32 pm
    GTD
     
  • Marcus Morris helps Celtics win 7th straight
    Boston won their seventh straight game on Thursday, with Marcus Morris coming off the bench for 19 points (7-of-13 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal.

    Advice: It was a tale of two halfs for the Celtics, who trailed by as many as 22 points in the first half before pulling away for a 114-103 victory. Morris was a steadying force early in the game and he moved well throughout, so maybe his nagging left knee injury is finally behind him. He added three 3-pointers in just 24 minutes tonight, but has been too inconsistent to trust in typical leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:57 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll (knee) questionable Friday
    DeMarre Carroll (right knee sprain) is questionable to play vs. Atlanta on Friday.

    Advice: Joe Harris has been starting in Carroll's absence, and both he and Nik Stauskas would take a hit if Carroll is cleared to return. His status could be determined during the Nets' shootaround, so check for updates on Friday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:15 pm
  • Derrick Favors (ankle) probable for Friday
    Derrick Favors (sprained ankle) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Favors practiced on Thursday, so unless there's a setback at shootaround it looks like he'll be back in action. Ekpe Udoh thrived as a fill-in starter on Wednesday, with 16 points, nine rebounds, four steals and two blocks, but Favors' return would be a direct hit to his value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:06 pm
  • Michael Beasley returned to action on Wednesday January 10. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:53 am
  • JaMychal Green breaks out for 20 & 14
    JaMychal Green broke out for 20 points and 14 rebounds on Wednesday, hitting 7-of-12 FGs and 6-of-6 FTs with two assists, two steals and one block in 34 minutes.

    Advice: This is the first time all season that Green has scored double-digit points in three straight games, and the first time since Nov. 13 that he's played at least 30 minutes. He took advantage of a short-handed Pelicans team tonight, which was playing without Anthony Davis (ankle), so we're still skeptical of him, but it can't hurt to grab him in deeper leagues in case his upswing proves to be sustainable. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:04 pm
     
  • DeAndre Liggins makes Pelicans' debut
    DeAndre Liggins made his Pelicans' debut on Wednesday, coming off the bench to score four points with one rebound and one assist in 11 minutes.

    Advice: The Pelicans just signed Liggins to a 10-day contract via a hardship exception, and they didn't waste any time deploying him with Anthony Davis (ankle) unavailable. He averaged just 1.8 points and 1.6 rebounds in 18 appearances for the Bucks this season, and his outlook isn't much brighter in New Orleans. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:54 pm
  • Ed Davis double-doubles w/ two blocks
    Ed Davis posted 11 points, 10 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 26 minutes vs. the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: Davis closed out the final 5:21 ahead of Jusuf Nurkic tonight, and he finished 4-of-4 from the field and 3-of-7 from the FT line. This was his second double-double of the season, which speaks volumes about his lack of reliability, but we're keeping a close eye on his playing time -- he's hit 23 and 26 minutes in his past two games, so maybe that will continue to trend up.

  • Andrew Wiggins posts 19 points in home win
    Andrew Wiggins ended up with 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting Wednesday's 104-88 home win against the Thunder.

    Advice: Wiggins chipped in with three rebounds, two assists and a steal over 42 minutes. He also extended his streak with at least one 3-pointer to 11 games dating back to Dec. 20. He is averaging 21.3 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals over his past three outings, but overall his numbers this season have been down across the board. That includes an awful 63.0 percent from the free-throw line, easily a career low. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:19 pm
