  • Dante Cunningham will return to the bench
    Dante Cunningham will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Mavs.

    Advice: DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) will be back in the starting lineup tonight following a two-game stint on the sidelines, so Cunningham will go from irrelevant starter to even more irrelevant bench player. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:29 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins, Hill will play Wednesday
    DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) and Solomon Hill (foot) will play Wednesday vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: Cousins will be returning from a two-game absence, which will shift Dante Cunningham back to the second unit, and both Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday's usage rates will take a hit. Feel free to get Boogie active for a favorable matchup with the Mavericks. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:24 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll will start, Tucker to bench
    DeMarre Carroll (back) will start and P.J. Tucker will come off the bench against the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: Carroll is back after missing his last two games. He was only playing around 20 minutes before his injury, so he should be in that neighborhood. With his return, Tucker, Norman Powell, Delon Wright, Jonas Valanciunas and Jakob Poeltl could lose a few minutes with the rotation change. Leave Carroll on the wire in most cases. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:20 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko (knee) available to play Weds
    Jonas Jerebko (sore knee) will be available to play Wednesday vs. Milwaukee.

    Advice: Jerebko will resume his limited bench role with Boston at full strength, meaning he's not going to be earning enough minutes tonight to matter in any setting. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:01 pm
  • Garrett Temple will not play
    Garrett Temple (rest) will not play against the Jazz on Wednesday

    Advice: There should be a heavy dose of Buddy Hield with Temple out for today. Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway should get minutes, as well. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:48 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) questionable Thursday
    Brandon Ingram (knee) is being listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Advice: While he's being listed as questionable, Luke Walton said he doesn't anticipate Ingram taking the court after he was unable to get through Wednesday's practice in full. It's looking like Corey Brewer will be earning another start on Thursday night, and it'll be David Nwaba and Larry Nance splitting the majority of Ingram's minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:36 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) out Wednesday vs. ATL
    Jahlil Okafor (right knee soreness) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

    Advice: This will be his fourth consecutive game watching from the sidelines, and it's starting to look like Okafor could start trending in shutdown territory, particularly with how well Richaun Holmes has played in his absence. Okafor's upside isn't great, so if you're in a standard league without an IR-spot, there's not much incentive to hang onto him. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:22 pm
  • Gordon Hayward (leg) goes through shootaround
    Gordon Hayward (quad) went through shootaround on Wednesday and remains questionable to face the Kings.

    Advice: This is a good sign for Hayward to suit up in the road game with a late tip. Hayward did take a knee to his lower quad on Saturday and it kept him out of action on Monday. If he can go, Hayward should be busy with George Hill (groin) out based on a 3.0 usage rate increase while also turning in a higher assist percentage. If things change and he can't go, Joe Ingles, Rodney Hood and Joe Johnson will have to carry the load on the wings.Daily Slant: It's sounding like Hayward is going to give it a go tonight, especially considering the Jazz will be without George Hill. Hayward gets a modest usage bump with Hill, Favors and Neto off the floor this season (1.3%), with Rodney Hood getting the biggest bump among the Utah regulars (2.9%). Hood's playing time has been fairly erratic of late, but if he sees 25-30 minutes against the Kings, he'll have a nice shot at returning value. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:59 am
  • Report: IND inks Stephenson to 3-year deal
    The Pacers have reportedly signed Lance Stephenson to a three-year deal worth $12 million.

    Advice: First off, wow. On the open market this season, Stephenson was only able to snag a non-guaranteed deal for $1.2 million from New Orleans, and a few 10-day contracts from Minnesota, so there really wasn't much reason for Bird to throw this sort of money at Born Ready. The first two years of this contract will reportedly be fully guaranteed with Year-3 being a team option. Stephenson put up career numbers the last time he was in Indy, but with how awful he's been over the past three years, fantasy GMs in most settings can use a wait-and-see approach. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:58 am
  • Report: IND looking to bring back Stephenson
    The Pacers are reportedly working on a deal to bring back Lance Stephenson.

    Advice: Indiana opened up a roster spot by waiving Rodney Stuckey on Wednesday, so it appears that three years after Born Ready declined a five-year, $44 million deal from the Pacers, Larry Bird will be able to get him on the books for the veteran's minimum. While Stephenson did have a nice season the last time he put on a Pacers' jersey in 2013, he's been dreadful for the past three years, so this is wait-and-see territory just about everywhere. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:28 am
  • DeMarre Carroll will try to play Wednesday
    DeMarre Carroll (back) was a full participant during shootaround, and he'll try to play Wednesday vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: Dwane Casey confirmed that if Carroll is able to give it a go tonight, he'll reclaim his spot in the starting five, which will result in P.J. Tucker returning to the second unit. Carroll has been woefully inconsistent this season, so even if he is able to get out there, he can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:21 am
  • Whiteside still experiencing pain in hand
    Hassan Whiteside acknowledged that it's been painful playing with 13 stitches in his right hand, but he doesn't intend to miss any games.

    Advice: "It's a little less pain, but it's still pain," he said of his healing process, "like if I shoot a lot of jump shots or if I do a lot, because it just bends back your hand. So that's what it is now." Whiteside has been fighting through the pain over his past three games, and while his shot blocking numbers have dipped to 1.3 during that span, he's still been taking care of business with 17.3 points and 12.7 boards a night. He's obviously a must-start guy every time he steps on the court. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:06 am
  • Brandon Ingram is not a shutdown candidate
    Luke Walton confirmed on Tuesday that he has no intention of shutting down Brandon Ingram (right knee tendinitis) for the rest of the season.

    Advice: Walton wants Ingram to get through a practice before he returns to the court, so we should have a better idea on his status for Thursday's game based on his activity during Wednesday's practice. That being said, despite earning 36 minutes a night over the past month, Ingram has ranked well outside the top-150 with averages of 13.0 points, 4.2 boards, 2.4 dimes, 1.0 steal and 2.3 turnovers per game, so there's not much incentive to hang onto him through the injury in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:52 am
  • Sean Kilpatrick returned to action on Tuesday March 28. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:34 am
  • D'Angelo Russell scores 28 w/ nine assists
    D'Angelo Russell posted a gem of a line on Tuesday vs. the Wizards with 28 points, nine assists, six rebounds, one block and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was well on pace for a triple-double, but the Lakers had a meltdown in the fourth quarter when they were outscored 37-13. Regardless, Russell shot 10-of-21 from the field and hit all four of his free throws, drawing the praise of head coach Luke Walton after the game -- Walton said he looked "brilliant" and praised him for his aggressiveness, passing and how he pushed the pace. Russell's value is locked and loaded the rest of the way, assuming Walton doesn't bench him again. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:40 pm
  • Ian Mahinmi (hip) returns to action
    Ian Mahinmi (hip) returned from a one-game absence on Tuesday vs. the Lakers and scored 10 points in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He finished 3-of-4 from the field with five rebounds and two steals, and while he showed no signs of being limited, his workload will be low while Marcin Gortat is healthy. Leave Mahinmi on the wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:32 pm
  • John Wall scores 34 w/ 14 assists in win
    John Wall lit up the Lakers for 34 points and 14 assists in Tuesday's 119-108 win.

    Advice: Trailing by 13 points entering the fourth, the Wizards outscored the Lakers 37-13 in the final quarter. Wall finished 14-of-25 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line with three rebounds, four steals and one triple in 37 minutes, improving the Wizards to 30-12 since the new year. The Wizards play three more times this week against the Clippers on Wednesday, the Jazz on Friday and the Warriors on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:24 pm
  • Al-Farouq Aminu scores 15 off the bench
    Al-Farouq Aminu scored 15 points with nine rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday.

    Advice: Aminu's minutes are trending down with Noah Vonleh playing well, but he got a small bump with Moe Harkless in foul trouble tonight. He was only averaging 8.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, 0.7 blocks, 0.9 steals and 1.0 3-pointers in March prior to tonight, and keep in mind that the Blazers only have two more games this week. He's more of a streaming option in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside hits game-winner over DET
    Hassan Whiteside hit 7-of-13 shots for 17 points, nine rebounds and no blocks, and had the game-winning tip in a big win over the Pistons on Tuesday.

    Advice: It wasn't his best game, by far, but he came through in the clutch, keeping the Heat one game in front of the Bulls for the final playoff spot in the East. And because of that, you can expect the Heat regulars to keep playing heavy minutes until further notice. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 pm
  • Gordon Hayward is questionable Wednesday
    Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: This isn't really an update, but his owners can expect a real one after Wednesday's morning shootaround. If Hayward misses his second game in a row, Joe Ingles is the clear pickup in fantasy after he scored 19 points with five triples on Monday. Joe Johnson will also benefit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:19 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins is questionable Wednesday
    DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: The big man has missed two games in a row and the Pelicans haven't said much about the injury. The Pelicans will hold a shootaround Wednesday morning, so that's when his owners will have a better idea of his status. If he's out, Dante Cunningham will likely start, but you would have to be very desperate to look his way. Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis will have higher ceilings if Boogie sits. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:31 pm
  • Ian Mahinmi and Bogdanovic will play Tuesday
    Ian Mahinmi (hip) and Bojan Bogdanovic (back) will play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Mahinmi went through a full practice on Monday and should be ready for his normal workload off the bench. However, fantasy owners can continue to ignore him while Marcin Gortat is healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:13 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will play Tuesday
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will play Tuesday night vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Kilpatrick had missed seven straight games. Coach Kenny Atkinson said that Kilpatrick will get some minutes "here and there," so we can expect him to see limited playing time on Tuesday. Kilpatrick will eat into the minutes of K.J. McDaniels and Randy Foye. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:56 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) out Tuesday vs. Wizards
    Brandon Ingram (right knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: With Ingram on the sidelines, Corey Brewer could be looking at another start, and guys like David Nwaba and Larry Nance should see some increased minutes with the second unit. Ingram will be traveling with the team to Minnesota for Thursday's matchup with the Wolves, so for now, we'll be considering him questionable for that one. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:09 am
  • Jonas Jerebko (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Jonas Jerebko was unable to finish practice on Tuesday due to a sore knee.

    Advice: At this point, we have to consider Jerebko questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks. The fantasy impact is minimal, as he is averaging just 11.1 minutes per game over his last four appearances. Kelly Olynyk and Tyler Zeller may see a few extra minutes if Jerebko does not play on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:50 am
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) will not play Tuesday
    Jahlil Okafor (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: This will be the third straight game Okafor has missed due to his troublesome right knee. Okafor has downplayed the severity of the injury and said that he could suit up if the Sixers were making a playoff push, but that coach Brett Brown and management want to err on the side of caution. Okafor should be left on waivers. Richaun Holmes and Shawn Long will continue to split minutes in Okafor's absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:24 am
  • Garrett Temple doesn't do much with time
    Garrett Temple played 34 minutes in Monday's 91-90 win against the Grizzlies, but he finished with just six points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a blocked shot.

    Advice: Temple was leaned upon heavily for his veteran presence in a game head coach Dave Joerger wanted badly against his former team, but Temple misfired on eight of his 10 field goal attempts. When Arron Afflalo (personal) or Tyreke Evans (rest) return it will mean a lesser role - and fantasy appeal - for Temple. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:20 pm
  • Garrett Temple starting Monday vs. Memphis
    Garrett Temple is in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Temple should do some heavy lifting with Arron Afflalo (personal) and Tyreke Evans (rest) in street clothes. While his role might be fairly significant for this game, he isn't someone to rely upon down the stretch. The Kings are likely to lean heavily upon their youth to get a jump on the 2017-18 season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:35 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins (ankle sprain) out Monday
    DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) will not play on Monday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: He is getting ruled out nearly a couple hours before tip-off, so that's usually not a good sign. His next chance to play will be on Wednesday vs. Dallas. Dante Cunningham will start again, but he's a poor fantasy option. Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday will benefit the most with Cousins out. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:05 pm
  • Report: Gordon Hayward (quad) out Monday
    According to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune, Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) will not play on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: His owners probably saw this coming because Hayward wasn't able to go through the morning shootaround. The Jazz do have three more games this week, so hopefully he'll be able to give it a go on Wednesday vs. the Kings. Joe Ingles will likely start in Hayward's place and is a decent streaming option if you need assists, steals and triples. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:48 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll (back) out Monday vs. Orlando
    DeMarre Carroll (back) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Magic.

    Advice: This will be Carroll's second straight game on the sidelines, and P.J. Tucker will be earning another start tonight. Tucker produced nine points, nine boards, three dimes, four steals, one triple and one turnover through 34 minutes as a starter his last time out, so he could be someone to consider throwing out there as a deep league streamer. For now, we'll consider Carroll questionable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:58 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) probable Tuesday
    Sean Kilpatrick (strained left hamstring) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's matchup with the 76ers.

    Advice: Kilpatrick has spent the past seven games on the sidelines with the hamstring issue, but it sounds like he'll be back in action on Tuesday night. With Kilpatrick expected to be active, there won't be quite as many minutes available for guys like Randy Foye, Archie Goodwin and K.J. McDaniels. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:58 pm
  • Ian Mahinmi (hip) practices in full on Monday
    Ian Mahinmi (hip) went through a full practice on Monday.

    Advice: Mahinmi was limited to nine minutes off the bench during Saturday's loss to the Cavs after getting kneed in the hip on a Richard Jefferson drive to the hoop, but it's not looking like this will be an issue that forced Mahinmi to spend any time on the sidelines. That being said, as long as Marcin Gortat is healthy, Mahinmi won't be worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:54 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) doubtful for Tuesday
    Brandon Ingram (right knee) did not practice on Monday and is being listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: Corey Brewer got the start in Ingram's place on Sunday, but only managed to contribute three points, two boards, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in 19 minutes, so while he could be looking at another start on Tuesday night, he's not a very attractive target in most scenarios. David Nwaba and Larry Nance Jr. figure to pick up some extra minutes if Ingram is out again on Tuesday, with Nance offering the most upside out of that group. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:46 pm
  • Gordon Hayward sits out morning shootaround
    Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) did not participate in Monday's morning shootaround.

    Advice: To be clear, he remains questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans. This means he will likely test out his quad in pre-game warmups. X-rays were negative and it shouldn't be a long-term issue, and Hayward does have a lot of incentive to play since the Jazz currently hold a 1.0 game lead over the Clippers for the No. 4 seed. If he can't go, Joe Ingles will be a solid streaming option in his absence. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:03 am
  • DeMarcus Cousins is questionable Monday
    DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Coach Alvin Gentry also said on Sunday that Cousins would be questionable, but he will likely end up being a game-time call since the Pelicans aren't expected to have a morning shootaround. Dante Cunningham could earn another start if Boogie sits, but he's not a good fantasy option. Instead, look for Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday to carry the Pelicans if Boogie can't go. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:35 am
  • Okafor says 76ers are being 'super cautious'
    Jahlil Okafor said that the 76ers are being "super cautious" with his right knee.

    Advice: He has missed two games in a row with right knee soreness and nine total games on the season, and there currently isn't a timetable for his return. "If we were like on the verge of trying to get a playoff spot or something like that, I could go out there and play," Okafor said. "But Coach Brown and all of our people behind the scenes don’t believe it’s necessary for me to play if my knee is feeling sore and stuff like that." This has been a lost season for Okafor and fantasy owners should've moved on a long time ago. Richaun Holmes and Shawn Long will continue to see a bump in value while he's out. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:39 am
  • Whiteside says playing w/ bandage is tough
    Hassan Whiteside said that playing with his heavily wrapped right hand is "tough."

    Advice: "It's tough rebounding. It's tough to do a lot," Whiteside said. "But I try to give everything I can possibly give to help the team." The big man is playing with 13 stitches in his right hand in addition to a tweaked right ankle, but with the Heat in a playoff race, he can't afford to take any time off. His fantasy owners don't mind, as he was still able to post a dominant line of 19 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, one steal and a blocked shot in 30 minutes against the Celtics on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:32 am
  • DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) questionable Monday
    DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Jazz, according to coach Alvin Gentry.

    Advice: For what it's worth, Cousins took some shots during halftime on Sunday with a pronounced limp. The Pelicans may not hold a shootaround prior to the second game in a back-to-back set, but owners should check for updates in the afternoon. Dante Cunningham will likely earn another start if Cousins isn't ready to go vs. Utah. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:40 pm
  • Dante Cunningham doesn't do much in start
    Dante Cunningham finished with six points, eight rebounds and two blocked shots in 31 minutes against the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Advice: Cunningham was making the start with DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) sidelined. He is only worth a look in the very deepest of seasonal fantasy leagues even if he makes another start in place of Cousins. Cunningham has a low usage rate even in a starting role. However, he is worth a roll of the dice as a low-priced DFS option if he makes another start. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:21 pm
  • Gordon Hayward (quad) questionable for Monday
    Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: X-rays were negative and coach Quin Snyder said that Hayward was "fine" after the injury occurred on Saturday, but Hayward did ask to check out of the game. Utah holds a slim one-game lead over the Clippers for the No. 4 seed, so Hayward will do everything he can to stay on the court, but owners should check for updates following shootaround. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:48 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside snags 15 boards in loss
    Hassan Whiteside finished with 19 points, 15 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a blocked shot over 30 minutes in Sunday's 112-108 loss against the Celtics.

    Advice: Just another night at the office for Whiteside, who now has double-doubles in each of his 13 games in the month of March, and 15 straight games dating back to Feb. 24. He is also working on a streak with at least one blocked shot in 29 consecutive games since he was last held off the board Jan. 19 against the Mavericks. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:47 pm
  • Brandon Ingram out for Sunday's game
    Brandon Ingram (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers due to patellar tendinitis.

    Advice: With Ingram out of the lineup, it is still being determined who will take his place. Head coach Luke Walton said he has not yet decided who will be included in the starting five. However, it's likely David Nwaba picks up plenty of minutes with Ingram on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:55 pm
  • Dante Cunningham starts for DeMarcus (ankle)
    Dante Cunningham will start vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Advice: DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) has been ruled out tonight, so Cunningham should get significant minutes. He sports an extremely low usage rate, however, and even as a fill-in starter he hasn't done much to merit fantasy owners' attention. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:45 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) out Sunday vs. DEN
    DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Advice: Dante Cunningham will start and Solomon Hill stands to benefit from Cousins' absence, while both Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday will also have less competition for usage. Cousins was essentially a game-time decision tonight, so there's a chance he'll return vs. the Jazz on Monday. Check back for updates after New Orleans' shootaround, assuming they hold one in the second half of a back-to-back set. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:40 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) is a game-time call
    DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is a game-time call vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Advice: He didn't go through the morning shootaround, but he will do everything he can to play in tonight's must-win game -- the Pelicans trail the Nuggets (No. 8 seed) by 5.0 games. If Boogie can't go, Dante Cunningham and Solomon Hill will get a bump, but they aren't great options in fantasy. Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis will get a nice usage bump as well if Boogie sits. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:21 am
  • Hassan Whiteside (ankle) expected to play
    Hassan Whiteside (sprained ankle) feels "a lot better" and is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: The big man sat out of Saturday's practice as a precaution, but it sounds like he's ready for a full workload. He was also talking about the matchup with Boston, so his status doesn't appear to be in jeopardy. We'll confirm that he's starting, but go ahead and get him active. According to Heat reporter Ira Winderman, Whiteside will be a "full go." Daily Slant: Boston has gotten a rep as one of the worst rebounding teams – on the season they’re the 5th-worst in rebounding percentage (48.4%) – but they’re the 11th-best since the all-star break (50.3%) and 8th-best over the past five games (52.3%). They have the 6th-best defensive rating since the break (102.5) and have allowed 44.6 points in the paint per game (13th), where Whiteside scores 74.5% of his points. While the league’s leading rebounder should produce today, his upside may be limited. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:44 am
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) out Sunday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: This will be his second game in a row on the shelf. He's dealing with soreness in his surgically-repaired knee, so the 76ers are going to be cautious moving forward. Richaun Holmes has been a must-own player for weeks, but Shawn Long is on the radar in deeper leagues after he scored a career-high 18 points with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals in 19 minutes vs. the Bulls on Friday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:25 am
  • John Wall drops 37 points in win at Cleveland
    John Wall scored 37 points during a 127-115 win over the Cavs on Saturday, adding four rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was red hot and made his first seven shots from the field during this win. Wall and the Wizards just dominated in the paint with 58 points from that range, and they also had a 27-4 advantage in fast-break points during this win. The Wizards are within shouting distance for the top seed and are just 2.5 behind the Cavs while they're 2.0 behind Boston for No. 2. Wall's shot is back with two efficient games in a row, so his owners can expect monster stat lines with four games this week. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:02 pm
  • Ian Mahinmi gets nine minutes
    Ian Mahinmi played nine minutes with one rebound and one steal against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Advice: He took a Richard Jefferson knee to his left hip and was in a lot of pain, but Mahinmi stayed in the game. It was pretty clear Mahinmi was protecting his hip from contact after that and he will likely be feeling it tomorrow. He isn't worth owning in fantasy anyway. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:42 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) questionable Sunday
    DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is questionable to play against the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Advice: This may have been sustained late in the game when he had some contact with Ryan Anderson. Cousins did finish the game and played the entire fourth quarter. We should have an update at shootaround, but there's a decent chance Boogie can give it a go. If not, Dante Cunningham and Solomon Hill should benefit. Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis would do the heavy lifting, of course. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:40 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll (back) out against the Mavs
    DeMarre Carroll (back) will not play against the Mavs on Saturday.

    Advice: It's being called a sore lower back, so this isn't his nagging knee injury or his ankle issue from earlier this month. Carroll just can't stay healthy, and you can expect the Raptors to limit him even more. We'll see some Norman Powell and P.J. Tucker this evening. Even if Tucker starts, Powell is still a better fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:04 pm
  • Gordon Hayward with left quad contusion
    Gordon Hayward has been diagnosed with a left quadriceps contusion suffered during the fourth quarter on Saturday.

    Advice: X-rays were negative, so he didn't suffer a fracture due to the contact from Austin Rivers. Hayward did return from this injury, but he asked out for a second time. Coach Quin Snyder also said Hayward is "fine" from this injury, so most signs point to him being ready for Monday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:49 pm
  • Wall good to go for Saturday
    John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter, Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat will start against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Advice: Wall looks like he's good to go and didn't have a water jug as he arrived to the arena this time around. Get him in your lineup and feel free to have high expectations, especially with a thin second unit lacking Bojan Bogdanovic (back). Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:17 pm
  • Quin Snyder: Gordon Hayward (leg) is fine
    Coach Quin Snyder said he thinks Gordon Hayward is "fine" after bruising his left leg.

    Advice: The coach added Hayward's injury wasn't to his knee joint and it was to a muscle in his leg. Hayward was not available to comment after the game, but the Jazz said that's their standard procedure for an injured player. For now, Hayward sounds like he'll be ready to roll for Monday against the Pelicans. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:42 pm
  • Brandon Ingram listed as questionable
    Brandon Ingram (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday against the Blazers.

    Advice: Ingram did not finish the Friday game, but he looked fine in his 30 minutes of action. He also said he is going to play in this game, but we'll see how the coaching staff feels about that. Plus, the Lakers are only up 0.5 games on the Suns for the No. 2 spot in the lotto. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:02 pm
  • Gordon Hayward has left knee soreness
    Gordon Hayward had left knee soreness in the fourth quarter against the Clippers on Saturday, finishing with 13 points, five rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He banged knees with Austin Rivers and came out of the game on the next possession. After about two minutes on the bench, Hayward did return to action for two minutes and even hit a trey in that time, but he asked out of the game after that and did not return. Hayward had a big ice pack on his left knee and went to the locker room before the game was completed. It didn't look bad and hopefully he'll be ready to play against the Pelicans on Tuesday to start his four-game week. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:58 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) out again Sunday
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play against the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: This hamstring strain will cost him at least two weeks and the Nets haven't indicated much on his progress. Kilpatrick did have an interesting tweet about his time on the sidelines today. "Our road trips be memorable," Kilpatrick tweeted. "Learning, getting better, and analyzing the game of basketball." It sounds like he'll be studying a little while longer. K.J. McDaniels has seen some minutes while Randy Foye has slightly benefited. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:22 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside (ankle) probable for Sunday
    Hassan Whiteside (sprained ankle) did not practice with the team on Saturday but is expected to play Sunday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Whiteside, who is playing with 13 stitches in his right hand, rolled his ankle late in the fourth quarter of Thursday's loss to the Raptors. However, he did downplay the injury after the game and, fortunately, it appears he will not be forced to miss any time. We are still awaiting an official announcement from the team or coach Erik Spoelstra regarding Whiteside's availability for Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:59 am
  • Brandon Ingram returned to action on Friday March 24. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:00 am
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) plans to play Sunday
    Brandon Ingram (right patellar tendinitis) said he was sore after Friday's game but that he "can manage it" and will play Sunday vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: Ingram has been dealing with nagging tendinitis recently and was forced to sit out the second half of Friday's win over the Wolves. However, it appears it's simply an issue of pain tolerance, and he says he'll be ready to roll on Sunday. Still, it's tough to put too much trust in Ingram going forward, as the Lakers have no reason to overextend their prized rookie at the end of a lost season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:29 am
  • DeMarcus Cousins scores 29 points
    DeMarcus Cousins scored 29 points with six rebounds, four assists, four blocks, one steal and five 3-pointers against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: It looks like all is right in the Boogie world. With one of his techs getting rescinded, he hasn't picked up a tech since his last one-game suspension, and his numbers have climbed since he missed Mar. 17 due to an injury. In those three games, Cousins averaged 28.3 points, 11.3 boards, 3.3 assists, 2.0 steals, 2.3 blocks and 3.7 treys. Sure, small sample size matters here, but this is still very impressive after such a rough start. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:13 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) won't return Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee) won't return to Friday's game vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: This was announced during overtime, so he was probably on a minutes restriction -- he was icing his knee on the bench down the stretch. Ingram is dealing with tendinitis, so it shouldn't be a long-term issue and he will likely be fine for Sunday's game vs. the Blazers. The rookie scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with three rebounds and a triple in 30 minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:05 pm
  • John Wall scores 22 points vs. Nets
    John Wall (migraine) needed just 24 minutes to score 22 points during a 129-108 win over the Nets on Friday, adding four rebounds, nine assist and one steal.

    Advice: Thankfully, the Wizards had this game in hand early to limit Wall's playing time. Wall said he's dealt with migraines in the past and he took a nap until about 4:30. He had a gallon of water as he arrived to the arena and warmed up wearing a hoodie. The Wizards have a massive game in Cleveland on Saturday, so hopefully Wall will be back to 100 percent. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:42 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) will play Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee tendinitis) will play on Friday vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: With the Lakers tanking, Ingram's knee issue must be very minor if they are letting him play through it. With averages of 15.2 points (on 52.8 percent shooting), 4.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists over his last nine games, he's a decent option if you don't mind his poor free throw percentage. The Lakers will keep their same starting five of Jordan Clarkson, D'Angelo Russell, Ingram, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:55 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) out against the Bulls
    Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not play against the Bulls on Friday night.

    Advice: The team will give him treatment on his sore knee during the game. Okafor's right knee soreness has been ongoing for most of the past 12 months and there's a good chance he misses additional time. Richaun Holmes should start and play big minutes as a must-start option in fantasy -- he's a strong DFS play, of course. Shawn Long should back him up with some Dario Saric at the five, as well. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:36 pm
  • John Wall (migraine) will play Friday night
    John Wall (migraine) will play Friday night against the Nets.

    Advice: He is not 100 percent and did not go through shootaround. As he arrived to the arena, he had a gallon of water, was wearing sunglasses and didn't exactly look healthy for this one. His fantasy owners in season-long leagues have to start him, but DFS owners may want to be careful on using him even in a plus matchup. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:02 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor doubtful for Friday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) is unlikely to play against the Bulls on Friday.

    Advice: His knee soreness won't go away and coach Brett Brown made it sound like he won't have Okafor. "It think if you made me guess right now, it’s going to be doubtful that he plays," Brown said. If Okafor is out, Richaun Holmes should get big minutes as a starter with Shawn Long backing him up. Okafor isn't worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:49 pm
  • Brooks expects Wall (migraine) to play Friday
    Coach Scott Brooks said he expects John Wall (migraine headache) to play Friday vs. the Nets, but Wall's status has not yet been confirmed.

    Advice: Wall was unable to participate in shootaround on Friday morning and is listed as questionable. This update from Brooks certainly qualifies as good news, but we are still awaiting confirmation. Check back soon, as we should have our final answer within an hour. Brandon Jennings will get the start if Wall is unable to play. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:30 pm
  • John Wall (migraine) questionable for Friday
    John Wall (migraine headache) is considered questionable for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Wall did not participate in the team's shootaround on Friday morning. He will be re-evaluated pregame on Friday night to determine his availability. This is shaping up as a game-time decision. It is worth noting that the Wiz are playing the lowly Nets. Many teams have used games against Brooklyn to rest their star players. Luckily, the game tips off at 7 pm, so we will have an official update before DFS lineups get locked in.Daily Slant: In the event that Wall does sit, both Bradley Beal and Markieff Morris will become much stronger DFS plays. Beal carries a strong 31.0% usage rate with Wall off the floor this year, while Morris leads the starters with a 7.8% usage bump. Bojan Bogdanovic actually leads the Wizards in usage without Wall on the floor, but it's in a smaller sample size. A match-up with the lowly Nets only makes Beal and Morris more intriguing. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:40 am
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) ruled out Friday
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: This will be the sixth consecutive game Kilpatrick has missed. He should be left on waivers in all leagues. K.J. McDaniels has been the biggest beneficiary of late. McDaniels has played over 20 minutes in each of Brooklyn's last two games and posted season-highs in both points (16) and rebounds (8) Thursday night in a blowout victory over the Suns. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:58 am
  • John Wall (headache) does not practice Friday
    John Wall (headache) did not practice Friday and will be checked on later in the day.

    Advice: It doesn't seem as if Wall is currently in any danger of missing Friday's game, but we will have to wait for confirmation from the team. It should also be noted that the Wizards play the Nets on Friday night. Many teams have rested star players this season when playing against Brooklyn, the NBA's worst team. Check back later for an update. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:48 am
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) a GTD for Friday vs. CHI
    Jahlil Okafor (right knee soreness) is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision Friday night in Chicago.

    Advice: Okafor got hit on the outside of his troublesome right knee in Wednesday night's the loss to OKC. Okafor was unable to participate in shootaround on Friday morning. All indications from the Sixers and coach Brett Brown point towards Okafor being closer to "doubtful" than "questionable." We will have to wait until later this evening for confirmation. If Okafor does not play, Richaun Holmes will draw the start and would see plenty of minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:26 am
  • Whiteside (ankle) plans on playing Sunday
    Hassan Whiteside downplayed the ankle injury he suffered Thursday night and said he plans on playing Sunday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Whiteside, who received 13 stitches in his hand on Tuesday, rolled his ankle late in the fourth quarter of Thursday's loss to the Raptors. "It’s not crazy like Dion’s," Whiteside said of the injury, referring to the badly sprained ankle of his teammate Dion Waiters. "More just annoying." Coach Erik Spoelstra was not quite as confident. "We'll know more, how severe or not severe," he said after the game. Stay tuned for updates out of Miami this weekend. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:12 am
  • Hassan Whiteside sprains ankle late vs. TOR
    Hassan Whiteside rolled his ankle at the end of Thursday's game.

    Advice: Coach Erik Spoelstra said he doesn't know how severe the ankle injury is, so we'll have to wait on the details. Whiteside had a right ankle injury before the All-Star Game and there's a chance that injury affected him for arguably the worst part of his season. As for this new injury, the schedule helped the Heat out this week because they won't play again until Sunday. Whiteside already was playing with 13 stitches in his hand, finishing with 16 points, 14 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in this loss to the Raptors. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:39 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside will start on Thursday night
    Hassan Whiteside (hand) will start on Thursday night against the Raptors.

    Advice: He went through warmups and apparently is good to go. Whiteside also went through morning shootaround and has intended to play all day. Fantasy owners can fire up Whiteside, but the Raptors did a good job against him in their last meeting with just 12 points. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:46 pm
  • Hassan Whiteside goes through shootaround
    Hassan Whiteside (right hand laceration) was able to go through the morning shootaround.

    Advice: Coach Erik Spoelstra said that Whiteside still intends to play on Thursday vs. the Raptors, but did add that most of the stuff he did at the shootaround was left handed. With the Heat fighting for a playoff spot, the chances of Whiteside playing should be pretty good. Check back for an update after the pre-game warmups. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:50 am
  • Gordon Hayward shoots 6-of-17 from the field
    Gordon Hayward couldn't find the range on Wednesday, making 6-of-17 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs to finish with 19 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: In Utah's previous three games, Hayward was tasked with defending LeBron James, Jimmy Butler and Paul George, so he may have just run out of energy tonight. The Jazz don't play again until Saturday, which is bad if you're relying on him for immediate value, but at least it'll give him a chance to recharge his batteries. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:00 pm
  • Garrett Temple comes off the bench
    Garrett Temple scored 12 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's tough to count on any Kings vet right now with how the front office finally is getting to play the youth. Temple can remain on the wire in just about all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:03 pm
  • John Wall recovers after ice-cold start Wed
    John Wall made 6-of-21 FGs and 9-of-12 FTs vs. the Hawks on Wednesday, finishing with 22 points, 10 assists, four steals, two rebounds and two blocks in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Wall went into halftime scoreless on 0-of-8 FGs and 0-of-2 FTs, but he was on a mission in the third and fourth quarters, helping Washington come back for an impressive home win. Wall also threw down a decisive dunk on a breakaway late in the fourth quarter, which you can enjoy via the link below. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:38 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor plays 17 minutes in return
    Jahlil Okafor scored six points with two rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Thunder went right at him and Okafor continues to have a bullseye on him when he's out there. Okafor's right knee could be a factor for his subpar play, and interestingly today is the one-year anniversary of when he had surgery. The 76ers will probably manage him the rest of the way, so he's really not worth owning in standard leagues until he proves otherwise. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:36 pm
  • Garrett Temple to bench on Wednesday
    Garrett Temple will come off the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: Arron Afflalo is getting the start tonight, and this effectively erases Temple's faint fantasy appeal. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:31 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) will start on Wednesday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) will start Wednesday vs. the Thunder, with Richaun Holmes coming off the bench.

    Advice: Okafor will be returning from a one-game absence, and his return to action will result in fewer minutes for Holmes. Okafor is good for some points and boards, but he typically doesn't offer much on the defensive end and turnovers have been an issue as of late. He's more of a deep league guy, while Holmes should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:08 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick out again for Thursday
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play against the Suns on Thursday.

    Advice: This will be his fifth game out of the lineup. The Nets have taken a look at K.J. McDaniels lately, giving him 21 minutes on Tuesday with 11 points. Archie Goodwin has also got some run, but these two are tough to own in most leagues. Caris LeVert should also benefit. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:00 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Okafor injured his knee Sunday night and did not suit up on Monday. He will be evaluated before Wednesday's game to determine his status. If Okafor does not play, Richaun Holmes, who is coming off a monster 24-point, 14-rebound effort, will draw another start. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:14 am
  • D'Angelo Russell scores 18 points
    D'Angelo Russell started alongside Jordan Clarkson again on Tuesday vs. the Clippers, finishing with 18 points on 7-of-15 shooting.

    Advice: The game was a 24-point blowout, but at least D Russ filled it up with five assists, two rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers. He was coming off a career-high 40 points in his previous outing with seven triples, and his value should be safe as long as coach Luke Walton doesn't take him out of the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:02 pm
  • DeMarcus Cousins drops 41 w/ monster line
    DeMarcus Cousins dropped 41 points in a 95-82 win over the Grizzlies on Tuesday, adding 17 rebounds, two assists, two steals, three blocks and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: This was easily his best game with the Pelicans as he shot 14-of-27 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line. He became just the second player since '83 with 41+ points, 17+ rebounds and 5+ triples, and the first since Kevin Love did it in 2010. The Pelicans trail the No. 8 seed (Denver) by 3.5 games, so expect him to keep playing through some minor ailments -- he missed Friday's game with a right rib contusion and a knee issue. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:51 pm
  • Coach Walton wants Russell to remain engaged
    Coach Luke Walton wants D'Angelo Russell to remain engaged, even when his shots are not falling.

    Advice: The Lakers are hoping Russell can build off the momentum of his career-high 40 point explosion on Sunday. However, coach Walton wants his young playmaker to stay focused, even if he's struggling offensively. "It’s when he’s engaged and doing other things, it allows him to make those type of shots because you’re in rhythm," Walton said. "He seems to be disengaged when the ball is not going in for him." Russell will remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:19 am
  • John Wall scores 16 points in loss
    John Wall scored 16 points with eight assists in Monday's loss to Boston.

    Advice: He shot 4-of-10 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line, adding four rebounds, three steals and five turnovers in 34 minutes. Wall received treatment under his left knee and on the side of his thigh after the game, but he didn't sound concerned and said that he would be "alright." We'll look for an update after Tuesday's practice, but for now his owners should expect him to play vs. the Hawks on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:22 pm
  • Gordon Hayward scores career-high 38 at IND
    Gordon Hayward scored a career-high 38 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals, a blocked shot and three 3-pointers in Monday's 107-100 loss at Indiana.

    Advice: It was likely extra special for Hayward since he spent his college days in Indy playing for the Butler Bulldogs. He was on point, connecting on 16 of his 24 field goal attempts. He now has at least one 3-pointer in all 11 games in March, and 22 straight outings dating back to Jan. 28. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:31 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell will start Tuesday vs. LAC
    D'Angelo Russell will remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Clippers.

    Advice: Luke Walton said that he'll be going with the same starting five that he deployed on Sunday night, so it'll be Jordan Clarkson, Russell, Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac getting the call on Tuesday. Walton also added that he intends on having a different starting lineup before the season ends, so it'll be interesting to see how long Russell can keep his spot as a starter. Randle could also be a candidate to eventually head to the bench if Walton wants to see how Larry Nance fits with the starters. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 2:37 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick, Harris out Tuesday vs. DET
    Sean Kilpatrick (left hamstring) and Joe Harris (shoulder) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: With both these guys set to spend Tuesday night on the sidelines, and Jeremy Lin (ankle) looking unlikely, Brook Lopez will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense, and there will be more minutes available for guys like Caris LeVert and K.J. McDaniels. LeVert could be someone to consider using as a streamer on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 1:36 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell to play off the ball more
    The Lakers want to evaluate how D'Angelo Russell plays off the ball for the remainder of the season.

    Advice: Coach Luke Walton said Russell will continue to start next to Jordan Clarkson, and if Sunday was any indication, he should finish the season strong -- he scored a career-high 40 points with six assists, two rebounds, two steals and seven 3-pointers vs. the Cavs. Looking at the big picture, it's possible the Lakers want to see Russell off the ball because the top prospects in this year's draft are point guards and the Lakers have a great chance of keeping their top-3 protected pick. Walton added that Russell is a great cutter and his highest 3-point percentage is off a screen, and it sounds like Russell is on board with the idea. "I’m a basketball player, not a point guard or a shooting guard," he said. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 7:22 am
  • D'Angelo Russell scores career-high 40 points
    D'Angelo Russell scored a career-high 40 points as a starter on Sunday, going 14-of-22 from the field (7-of-12 from downtown), with six assists, two rebounds and two steals in 41 minutes.

    Advice: Russell played the entire first quarter and scored 18 points in that frame alone, looking revived as a member of the starting unit. He got the nod in place of Nick Young (illness) tonight, and after his career night coach Luke Walton said he'll continue pairing D-Russ with Jordan Clarkson in the backcourt. Russell has been alternately frustrating and exhilarating to own this season, but we should get more of the latter over L.A.'s final 12 games. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:21 pm
  • Garrett Temple hot from the perimeter
    Garrett Temple scored 15 points while hitting all three of his attempts from behind the arc in Sunday's 118-102 loss in San Antonio.

    Advice: Temple matched his best shooting night since returning from a long-term hamstring injury, and this was just the second time he played in a back-to-back situation since coming back March 5. The last time he struggled in both ends of the back-to-back, but he obviously excelled this time around. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 7:17 pm
  • Al-Farouq Aminu held to single digits...again
    Al-Farouq Aminu was held to single-digit points for the fifth straight game on Sunday, making his only shot attempt to score three points with five rebounds in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Aminu was playing well to begin the month, but he's fallen off a cliff in the past 10 days. Noah Vonleh is playing very well, Evan Turner is healthy, and the Blazers' simply have too many interchangeable parts to expect Aminu to emerge as a reliable asset down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 6:44 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell starting for Nick Young
    D'Angelo Russell will start Sunday's game in place of Nick Young (illness).

    Advice: Russell scored 14 points in 21 minutes off the bench in L.A.'s last game, before getting ejected in the third quarter, and his role should expand with the starting unit. If you were on the fence about him tonight, Young's absence should make it easier to deploy him. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 6:02 pm
  • Dante Cunningham plays 22 minutes off bench
    Dante Cunningham came off the bench on Sunday for three points, three rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes.

    Advice: Cunningham filled in for DeMarcus Cousins (knee) on Friday, scoring seven points with nine boards in 39 minutes. He's been a fantasy liability all season, and that's not about to change with 12 games left. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 5:59 pm
  • Dante Cunningham to bench w/ Cousins active
    Dante Cunningham will come off the bench behind DeMarcus Cousins (knee) on Sunday.

    Advice: Cunningham played 39 minutes on Friday but his role will shrink in the second unit. His per-minute usage is minuscule and there's no reason to touch him outside of the deepest leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 2:18 pm
