  • Motiejunas not reporting because of money
    Donatas Motiejunas won't report to the Rockets because of a difference of nearly $6 million from the offer sheet he signed with the Nets, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPN.com.

    Advice: Motiejunas signed a four-year, $37 million offer sheet with the Nets last week, but the Rockets only had to match the principle terms of the offer sheet. That explains the $6 million difference. According to the report, "Houston's options are to keep their first-refusal exercise notice open and wait for Motiejunas to report. If he doesn't report, Houston can pull the offer Thursday and Motiejunas would become a restricted free agent." Rotoworld.com 28 minutes ago
  • Nick Young (calf) targeting Monday night
    Nick Young (calf) is targeting a return on Monday night, according to Mark Medina of the Orange County Register.

    Advice: It's worth mentioning this report adds the Lakers downplayed that target date. Young surprisingly traveled with the team to Houston for tonight, and has been going through some pool exercise and light shooting. It's possible Young is back for Monday, but it seems slightly doubtful. There will be more minutes for Marcelo Huertas, Brandon Ingram and Luol Deng. Rotoworld.com 46 minutes ago
  • Christian Wood sent down to the D-League
    Christian Wood has been assigned to Charlotte's D-League affiliate.

    Advice: He's only made it onto the court once this season for a total of three minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:55 am
  • Aaron Harrison sent down for D-League stint
    Aaron Harrison has been sent down for a D-League stint.

    Advice: Harrison is a negligible part of the rotation in Charlotte, so he can safely remain on waiver wires everywhere. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:54 am
  • MIA may wait for Rudy Gay to hit free agency
    The Heat may wait to pursue Rudy Gay as an unrestricted free agent this summer rather than unloading assets to nab him this season.

    Advice: Miami is currently in the bottom three of the Eastern Conference with a record of 7-14, so they may pursue a tanking avenue this season rather than try and bring in talent to start winning games. Gay has been linked to the Heat franchise for some time now, and he reportedly "loves Miami," but pursuing him as a free agent next offseason might make more sense than trading for him now. That doesn't mean that Gay doesn't get traded this season, though. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:46 am
  • R.J. Hunter sent down for a D-League stint
    R.J. Hunter has been sent down for another D-League stint.

    Advice: Hunter has made three appearances for the Bulls this season, but through nine minutes of floor time he's only managed to contribute one rebound while missing his only shot attempt. There's no fantasy value here. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:20 am
  • Nick Young (calf) limited to light shooting
    Nick Young (calf) is still being limited to light shooting.

    Advice: Young is unable to make hard cuts or get around screens, which is to be expected given that he just hit the beginning of Week-2 of his initial 2-4 week timetable. He's out for Wednesday's game against the Rockets, and it seems unlikely that he'll be able to play Friday vs. Phoenix, meaning Jordan Clarkson, Lou Williams and Brandon Ingram will continue to soak up the backcourt minutes in Los Angeles. He does hope to return to a full practice on Saturday, so we'll be watching for that. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:14 am
  • Larry Nance (knee) available to play vs. HOU
    Larry Nance (knee) will be available to play Wednesday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: He should resume his 20-minute reserve role, which will take away some minutes from Julius Randle. Nance has been a sneaky top-75 guy in 9-cat leagues this season with averages of 7.7 points, 5.8 boards, 1.2 steals and just 0.6 turnovers per game on 60.0 percent shooting from the field, so feel free to get him active. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:07 am
  • D'Angelo Russell out at least two more games
    D'Angelo Russell (knee) will not play Wednesday or Friday and is unlikely to play on Sunday.

    Advice: He is going to increase his workload this week with basketball activities. Russell is feeling better and it sounds like he'll be back at some point next week. Until then, Marcelo Huertas will be in the mix while Lou Williams will look to continue his hot streak. Jordan Clarkson has struggled, but he's likely to get an increased opportunity. Brandon Ingram will also have more ball-handling responsibility. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:52 am
  • Marvin Williams expected to start
    Marvin Williams (knee) is expected to start against the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Advice: He went through a 2-on-2 on Tuesday and everything went well, according to Williams after the session. "I feel like it went really well," Williams said. "If I wake up and feel good, I do expect to play." After missing the last six games due to a bone bruise, he should be back. Even though he's been bad this year, he's worth a pickup. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:44 am
  • Nikola Jokic will be a game-time call
    Nikola Jokic (wrist) is expected to be a game-time decision to face the Nets on Wednesday.

    Advice: The good news for fantasy owners is that this game is in Brooklyn, so we should get word of his status before the games start tonight. The Nuggets have really leaned on Darrell Arthur to play some small-ball five while Jusuf Nurkic finally had a good game against Joel "The Process" Embiid on Monday. If Jokic is back, all the power forwards except for Wilson Chandler would take a hit. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:36 am
  • Eric Bledsoe still working on his jumpers
    Eric Bledsoe said he's worked on his jumper all summer.

    Advice: "I know I can get to the rim," Bledsoe said. "Once I get [the jump shots] to fall, there’s going to be some problems." Bledsoe still only has a 41.5 effective field goal percentage on his shots on the season, but he's up to 48.5 eFG% in his last six. He's also been very busy over his last 10 with a team-high 29.1 usage rate in his 30.8 minutes per game. Expect plenty of big lines going forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:32 am
  • Will Barton no longer bothered by ankle issue
    Michael Malone said that Will Barton "is getting back to his old self" after dealing with an ankle injury that sidelined him for 11 games.

    Advice: "Will is getting back to his old self," Malone said. "Feeling comfortable, feeling confident and then being aggressive. Hopefully he’s over any concerns he’s had with the ankle injury and can just go out there and play." Since returning from the injury, Barton has scored a team-leading 19.7 points over the last three to go with 6.7 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.0 block and 1.7 triples a night. He needs to be owned in all leagues while he's this hot. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:10 am
  • Luke Babbitt (hip) out Wednesday vs. Atlanta
    Luke Babbitt (strained right hip flexor) will not play Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Miami will again be without Dion Waiters (groin), Justise Winslow (wrist), James Johnson (rotator cuff) and Josh Richardson (ankle, wrist), so Goran Dragic and Hassan Whiteside should again dominate the offensive possessions with Tyler Johnson and Wayne Ellington also seeing some increased opportunity. Babbitt is not traveling with the team, so he'll miss Friday and Saturday's game as well. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:00 am
  • Andrew Bogut (knee) could miss 3-4 weeks
    Andrew Bogut (right knee bone bruise) said he could miss anywhere from 10 days to 3-4 weeks.

    Advice: Bogut tends to be a slow healer, and he was initially given a 2-week timetable, so it's extremely unlikely we see him back on the court in 10 days, particularly with Dallas sitting on a 4-16 record. On the season, Bogut has only produced 14th round value in standard 9-cat leagues with averages of 3.8 points, 10.3 boards, 2.2 assists and 0.9 blocks per contest, so he's not really worth hanging onto in standard leagues. Dwight Powell should benefit most in Bogut's absence. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:54 am
  • Frank Kaminsky likely to return to the bench
    Frank Kaminsky will likely return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: Marvin Williams (knee) is expected to return to the court tonight, and he'll resume his spot in the starting five sending Kaminsky back to the bench. Kaminsky basically only had one solid game as a starter, and his value will take a pretty massive hit with the demotion to the second unit. Feel free to move on if you picked him up for his shot-term value sans Williams. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:42 am
  • Jamal Murray (quad) probable for Wednesday
    Jamal Murray (left quad contusion) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Murray did put up 22 points and three triples in his previous outing, but he's been extremely inconsistent since Will Barton (ankle) got back to the court. He will be drawing a favorable matchup against the Nets tonight, so perhaps he can keep the good times rolling. At the moment, he's only worth rostering in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:32 am
  • Nikola Jokic (wrist) questionable Wednesday
    Nikola Jokic (wrist) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

    Advice: Head coach Michael Malone said that the Nuggets will be taking a cautious approach in bringing back Jokic, so if there's any doubt about the health of his wrist, he'll likely be spending Wednesday's game on the sidelines. He's likely headed for a game-time call, but if he is able to return to the court tonight, Kenneth Faried's minutes will likely take a hit. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:30 am
  • Isaiah Thomas (groin) out Wednesday vs. ORL
    Isaiah Thomas (groin) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Advice: Thomas flew back to Boston to receive treatment on his groin injury, and Marcus Smart was spotted sporting a starter jersey during shootaround, so it looks like Smart will be drawing the start tonight making him a reasonable low-budget DFS option. Avery Bradley and Al Horford will do the heavy lifting on offense tonight sans Thomas, and Terry Rozier will see an uptick in minutes. Groin injuries can linger, so Boston may want to take a cautious approach in bringing back Thomas. For now, we'll consider him doubtful for Friday's game against the Raptors. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:04 am
  • Rondo looking to move on after suspension
    Rajon Rondo referred to Saturday's incident in which he picked up a one-game suspension for reportedly throwing a towel at an assistant coach "part of the game."

    Advice: "Me as a player, a point guard, I have to handle a situation better," Rondo said. "But when I feel a certain way, I’m gonna speak on it. My whole thing is always for the betterment of the team. If it comes off wrong or a certain way I’ll try to work on that." Rondo has had open spats with his coaches in the past, and a history of attitude issues, so this likely won't be the last time he makes headlines for the wrong reasons. He's just been a late-round guy this year, and it's unlikely he'll be able to work his way into an early-round evaluation while Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade are healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:53 am
  • DeAndre Liggins will start Wednesday vs. NYK
    DeAndre Liggins will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Knicks with J.R. Smith (knee) unavailable.

    Advice: This will be just the second start of Liggins' career, and while he will see some increased opportunity with the first unit tonight, Smith's minutes will likely be divvied up between Liggins, Iman Shumpert and Jordan McRae with their being no clear winner here. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:38 am
  • Kyle Korver 'fine' with reserve role in ATL
    Kyle Korver said he's "fine" with coming off the bench in Atlanta.

    Advice: "Fine," Korver said of the decision Tuesday to bring him off the bench moving forward. "We are in a tough stretch and we have to try anything to try to get this going again. I’ll do my best whatever the role is." Mike Budenholzer has made it clear that Korver's bench role will not change any time soon, and while he did have a solid outing on Tuesday with 15 points and two triples in 32 minutes, he's been woefully inconsistent this season. It'll be interested to see if he can keep it up Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:45 am
  • Paul Millsap (hip) will play through the pain
    Paul Millsap (hip) said he will fight through the pain, and he fully intends to play Wednesday vs. the Heat.

    Advice: "It’s sore," Millsap said after practice Tuesday. "It’s something that probably will have to be dealt with. By that I mean just playing through and see what happens. Hopefully, getting better." Millsap is being listed as probable for tonight's game, and after returning from his three-game stint on the sidelines Monday night and going through Tuesday's practice, there's no reason to believe he'll miss Wednesday's game. Get him active. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:32 am
  • Marvin Williams (knee) on track to play Weds
    Marvin Williams (knee) said that he feels "totally ready to do" what he does, and barring a setback, he will play Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: "I don’t know about my normal 25 to 30 minutes, but I feel totally ready to do what I do," Williams said. "I can run and jump. My lungs might actually be the hardest thing to get back." He'll probably be closer to the 25-minute mark as his conditioning likely isn't where it needs to be after spending 10 days on the sidelines, so he's not necessarily a must-start option with 10 games being played tonight. He's also been in a bad shooting slump this season, limiting his standard league appeal. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:25 am
  • P.J. Tucker fails to score in 21 minutes
    P.J. Tucker finished with one steal and two turnovers in 21 minutes against the Jazz on Tuesday.

    Advice: We're not kidding. Tucker didn't attempt a shot and failed to add any assists, rebounds or blocks. The Suns were giving him a ton of minutes prior to Tuesday and there's no word of any injury. Tucker had a nice two-game run last week with 17 points against the Hawks on Nov. 30 and 21 points against the Nuggets on Nov. 27, but feel free to move on unless he gets hot again. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:26 pm
  • Brandon Knight scores 15 w/ seven rebounds
    Brandon Knight scored 15 points on 6-of-18 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: He didn't have any triples, blocks or steals, but added seven rebounds and five assists in 27 minutes. His playing time has been all over the place this season in his sixth man role behind Eric Bledsoe and Devin Booker, so his owners will be rooting for the Suns to trade him before the deadline. He's a low-end asset in standard leagues until his situation improves. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Devin Booker scores 21 points in loss
    Devin Booker scored 21 points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one triple and four turnovers against the Jazz on Tuesday.

    Advice: This was his second game in a row with 21 points and he finished 9-of-13 from the field. The second-year SG has been steady over his last five games with averages of 19.2 points, 3.2 assists, 1.8 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.6 triples and his value is going to be safe all season long on the tanking Suns. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Kyle Anderson breaks loose on Tuesday
    Kyle Anderson played 22 minutes off the bench and had 11 points, a 3-pointer, six rebounds, four assists and a block on 2-of-4 shooting in Tuesday's 105-91 win over the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Anderson had scored a total of six points in his previous four games, so don't get too excited. But with Danny Green scoring just five points last night, and averaging just 7.5 points in his 13 games this season, Anderson is worth keeping an eye on in case Gregg Popovich grows tired of Green's struggles. But for now, Anderson belongs on waivers, along with Green. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Rajon Rondo quiet in return from suspension
    Rajon Rondo returned from a one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team on Tuesday and hit 4-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, three boards, two assists and a block in a 102-91 loss to Detroit.

    Advice: Rondo has apparently kissed and made up with the Bulls, but he's not been fun to own for the last few days. He failed to even show up against his arch enemy, Dallas, was then suspended for going after a coach, and then posted this lackluster dud tonight. Maybe he'll get it turned around against the Spurs on Thursday, but it's a shame he couldn't torch the Mavericks after last Friday's 15-11-12 triple-double. Instead, he nosedived into the side of a mountain. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:46 pm
  • Luke Babbitt (hip) out Tuesday vs. the Knicks
    Luke Babbitt (hip) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Knicks.

    Advice: Dion Waiters (groin), Justise Winslow (wrist), James Johnson (rotator cuff) and Josh Richardson (ankle, wrist) will join Babbitt on the sidelines on Tuesday, leaving Miami with just nine healthy players for tonight's game. Goran Dragic, Tyler Johnson and Hassan Whiteside will dominate the offensive possessions tonight, and guys like Derrick Williams and Rodney McGruder are viable punt play options in DFS. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:59 pm
  • Paul Millsap (hip) probable for Wednesday
    Paul Millsap (hip) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Millsap returned from a three-game absence on Monday and put up 24 points, five boards, four assists, three steals and a triple in 39 minutes, so there's no reason to believe he'll miss Wednesday's game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:00 pm
  • Report: Andrew Bogut (knee) out for 2 weeks
    An MRI revealed a minor bone bruise in Andrew Bogut's right knee and he's expected to spend at least the next two weeks on the sidelines.

    Advice: This is probably the best news the Mavs could have got regarding their oft-injured center, but with Bogut and Dirk Nowtizki (Achilles) out of commission, Dwight Powell will get his time to shine and he's someone to consider swooping up as a speculative add in standard leagues. Salah Mejri should be able to earn some starts sans Bogut, but he's more of a wait-and-see guy in deep leagues. Bogut only has 14th round value on the year, so he's not really worth holding through the injury. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:00 pm
  • Larry Nance (knee) questionable for Wednesday
    Larry Nance (knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game in Houston.

    Advice: Nance was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, and he was officially "available to play" on Monday, so he's probably much closer to probable for Wednesday's game. Owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but Nance's return to action will syphon away some minutes from Thomas Robinson and Julius Randle. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:48 pm
  • Marvin Williams (knee) probable for Wednesday
    Marvin Williams (knee) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: Wednesday has been the target date all along, so things are trending in a positive direction here, although we likely won't get official confirmation on his status until we're closer to game-time. With Williams back in action, Frank Kaminsky will return to the bench and Spencer Hawes could fall out of the rotation entirely. Williams has been awful this year, connecting on just 33.6 percent of his shots, so he's a more attractive pickup in points leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:38 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell will begin on-court work
    D'Angelo Russell (knee) has been cleared to start going through on-court work with the Lakers, although he will not be traveling to Houston for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    Advice: Russell is reportedly "feeling better," although Walton did acknowledge that it's unlikely he'll be able to play Friday vs. Phoenix or Sunday vs. the Knicks. Perhaps there's a chance that he can get back to the court for Monday's game in Sacramento, but that would be on the early end of his initial 2-3 week timetable. For now, Lou Williams and Jordan Clarkson will continue to soak up the backcourt minutes in Russell's absence, with Sweet Lou offering the most upside. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:13 pm
  • Nick Young shooting post-practice jumpers
    Nick Young (right calf) was spotted getting up some shots following Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Young is nearing the conclusion of Week-1 of his initial 2-4 week timetable, so while this is a minor step in the right direction, he's still not close to making a return. He's not really worth hanging onto if you don't have an IR-spot, and it'll be Lou Williams, Jordan Clarkson and Brandon Ingram picking up some extra minutes in his absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:05 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas (groin) doesn't practice Tues
    Isaiah Thomas (groin) did not participate during Tuesday's practice.

    Advice: Thomas tweaked his groin during Monday's loss to the Rockets, so for now, we're going to consider him questionable for Wednesday's game in Orlando. If he's out, Marcus Smart or Terry Rozier could move into the starting lineup, with Avery Bradley and Al Horford being asked to step it up on the offensive end. Owners can expect to get another update on Thomas' status following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but it's worth noting that he was able to get some shots up after practice. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:58 am
  • Larry Nance goes through light practice Tues
    Larry Nance (right knee contusion) was a full participant during Tuesday's light practice.

    Advice: Nance was available to play on Monday, but he didn't actually step foot on the court, although it sounds like there's a decent chance he gets back in the rotation for Wednesday's game in Houston. When Nance gets back, he'll take away some minutes from Julius Randle and Thomas Robinson could fall out of the rotation entirely. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:50 am
  • Carlisle says Bogut (knee) will 'miss time'
    Rick Carlisle said that he expects Andrew Bogut to miss at least the next three games "and probably longer," after suffering a right knee injury during Monday's loss to the Hornets.

    Advice: Bogut is currently undergoing an MRI, so we should have an updated and official timetable for his return soon, but it doesn't seem very likely that he'll be able to get back to the court until at least next Tuesday's game (Dec. 12) against the Nuggets. Salah Mejri could draw a few starts in Bogut's absence, but Dwight Powell is the guy you want to add in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:40 am
  • Donatas Motiejunas will not report to Rockets
    Donatas Motiejunas will not report to Houston to take a physical and join the team, per Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: Motiejunas, a restricted free agent, signed an offer sheet with Brooklyn last week but the Rockets decided to match. As recently as last week, Motiejunas had said he would be open to a return to Houston, but obviously something has gone wrong. Per Woj, the Rockets and Motiejunas' representatives are discussing what the next steps will be. Motiejunas would only have seen limited minutes in Houston, so the fantasy implications here are relatively minor. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:49 am
  • Andrew Bogut (knee) 'dodged a bullet'
    The initial prognosis of the injury suffered by Andrew Bogut on Monday is a hyperextended right knee, which isn't believed to be serious.

    Advice: "We don't think it's terribly serious," coach Rick Carlisle said. "At this point, it appears we dodged a bullet." A source expressed optimism that Bogut's injury would not be a long-term issue. He will have an MRI on Tuesday to determine the severity. Salah Mejri may start in place of Bogut, but Dwight Powell is the biggest fantasy beneficiary. Powell scored 15 points and grabbed seven rebounds in 32 minutes on Monday night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:14 am
  • Andrew Bogut hyperextended his right knee
    Andrew Bogut hyperextended his right knee on Monday vs. the Hornets, according to head coach Rick Carlisle.

    Advice: X-rays came back negative and the injury isn't believed to be too serious, but the Mavs will be cautious since they don't have much to play for. Bogut finished scoreless on Monday with six rebounds in 10 minutes. Dwight Powell played 32 minutes with Bogut out and finished with 15 points and seven rebounds, while Salah Mejri only played eight minutes. Carlisle has started Mejri in the past when Bogut was on the shelf, so both players are on the fantasy radar with Powell offering more upside. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:20 pm
  • Kyle Korver scores 15 off Hawks bench
    Kyle Korver took his demotion to the bench in stride, hitting 5-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 15 points, two rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: This was his second highest scoring game of the season and he looked much better than he has since very early in the year. Maybe the bench will treat him better, but if he wasn't getting it done while starting, it's going to be very hard to trust him coming off the bench. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:07 pm
  • Millsap plays well, but Hawks lose again
    Paul Millsap returned from his hip injury on Monday and played well, racking up 24 points, five rebounds, four assists, three steals and a 3-pointer on 8-of-14 shooting.

    Advice: Finally. Millsap wasn't playing well before his injury and owners in weekly leagues had a tough decision to make with him. He came through tonight and looked like vintage Millsap, so hopefully he's over his injury and his knee is also feeling better. As for the Hawks, they are reeling, losers of seven straight games and 10 of their last 11. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:53 pm
  • Jamal Murray breaks out of funk on Monday
    Jamal Murray played 23.5 minutes off the bench and hit 8-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers for 22 points, three rebounds and two assists in Monday's 106-98 win over the Sixers.

    Advice: After scoring 18, 24, 23 and 20 points in four straight games in November, he had scored a grand total of just 20 points over his previous four games, hitting 7-of-29 shots over that stretch. He was great tonight, but we'll need to see him do it again before declaring him a hot pickup. But if you need a warm body in a deep league and he was dropped, he might be worth a flier after this one. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:19 pm
  • Will Barton stays hot, scores 22 in win
    Will Barton filled the stat sheet with 22 points, eight boards, three assists, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer in 36 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: He hit 9-of-17 shots and is rolling right now, scoring 22, 20 and 17 points in each of his last three games. Make sure he's not available in your league now that he's healthy. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:14 pm
  • Andrew Bogut (right knee) will not return
    Andrew Bogut (right knee) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: The Mavericks will likely run some tests on him and there should be another update after the game. He was ruled out about 10 minutes after he went down with the injury, so that's usually not a good sign. If you're in a deeper league and need a big, Dwight Powell and Salah Mejri should both be on your radar. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:23 pm
  • Andrew Bogut (leg) goes to the locker room
    Andrew Bogut (leg) left Monday's game vs. the Hornets and went back to the locker room.

    Advice: It's being called a lower right leg injury for now and he should be considered questionable to return. If Bogut misses time, both Dwight Powell and Salah Mejri should benefit the most. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:10 pm
  • Larry Nance is available, but may not play
    Larry Nance (right knee contusion) is available on Monday vs. the Jazz, but he may not play.

    Advice: Coach Luke Walton said Nance is "ready to go if we need him," but Walton would prefer if the forward got some extra rest. In case it needs to be said, Nance doesn't belong in fantasy lineups Monday. Thomas Robinson will likely remain in the rotation Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:52 pm
  • Paul Millsap (hip) to start, Muscala to bench
    Paul Millsap (hip) will start vs. the Thunder on Monday, moving Mike Muscala to the bench.

    Advice: He made it through warmups just fine and is returning after a three-game absence. We haven't heard about any restrictions for Millsap, so season-long owners should make sure he's active. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:41 pm
  • Kyle Korver will come off the bench Monday
    Kyle Korver will come off the bench Monday vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Thabo Sefolosha is replacing the struggling Korver in the starting five, and head coach Mike Budenholzer indicated that this move is not a matchup based decision, but something he'll be rolling with moving forward. Korver hasn't even been worth owning over the past seven games, chipping in forgettable averages of 6.6 points and 1.3 triples on 38.1 percent shooting, and the demotion to the bench isn't going to do him any favors. He's a cut-candidate in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:58 pm
  • Report: HOU matches Motiejunas' offer sheet
    The Rockets have reportedly matched Donatas Motiejunas' offer sheet from the Nets.

    Advice: Motiejunas may have been able to put up some low-end fantasy value in Brooklyn, but now he'll be fighting for reserve minutes in Houston with the likes of Nene and Montrezl Harrell. Motiejunas has been training in Canada, but his conditioning likely isn't where it needs to be, and he still needs to pass a physical before he's allowed to play. This is far from an ideal situation in fantasy hoops, so he can remain on the wire in most scenarios. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:03 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell will be re-evaluated Tuesday
    D'Angelo Russell (knee) will be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

    Advice: Russell was originally scheduled to be re-evaluated on Monday, but a scheduling conflict delayed the process by one day. He's currently in the early stages of Week-2, and if all goes well with his checkup on Tuesday, he could advance to on-court work. As for Monday's game against Utah, Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams will likely be logging heavy minutes with Jose Calderon (hamstring), Russell and Nick Young (Achilles) all on the sidelines.

  • Report: Mavs not shopping Andrew Bogut
    The Mavs reportedly have no immediate intention of trading away Andrew Bogut, as they are currently focused on salvaging their season.

    Advice: Dallas is currently sitting on the second-worst record in the league at 4-15, and with Dirk Nowitzki 38 years old and dealing with Achilles issues, it doesn't seem likely that they'll suddenly be able to turn things around. The Mavs do understand that Bogut has significant trade value as a complementary piece to a championship squad, and they acknowledge that a move could be made once they're mathematically eliminated from the playoff hunt. In other words, Bogut is unlikely to finish the year in Dallas, and Boston has already been linked to him. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:20 pm
  • Luke Babbitt (hip) questionable Tuesday
    Luke Babbitt (hip) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: He made it through a limited practice on Monday, so his injury may not be as bad as initially believed. James Johnson (shoulder) is the newest addition to the injury report and will not play, so Babbitt could see plenty of minutes if he's available. Even if he does play, he won't be a great fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:44 am
  • Paul Millsap (hip) a game-time call Monday
    Paul Millsap (hip) is a game-time call on Monday vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Millsap has missed the last three games for the Hawks, but he's truly day-to-day and the Hawks didn't even feel the need to give him an MRI which is a very good sign. If Millsap is ultimately ruled out Monday, Mike Muscala could possibly make his second straight start at PF, but he won't be a great option outside of deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:45 am
  • Rajon Rondo suspended for Monday's game
    Rajon Rondo has been suspended for Monday's game vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: He's being suspended for "conduct detrimental to the team," as he reportedly snapped at an assistant coach in the loss against Dallas. He's since apologized to the team, so he should be back in his usual role on Tuesday against the Pistons. With Rondo out, Jerian Grant will likely get the chance to start and play big minutes, while Isaiah Canaan and Denzel Valentine should get a bump as well. In two previous starts this season, Grant posted averages of 12.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 3.5 steals and 1.0 triple in 30.0 minutes. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:43 am
  • Report: Celtics could pursue Andrew Bogut
    Celtics reporter A. Sherrod Blakely believes the team will go after Andrew Bogut before the trade deadline.

    Advice: The Celtics could use some additional rim protection to partner with Al Horford, and Bogut should be readily available -- he's on the last year of his deal and the Mavs are rebuilding. Bogut's long-term fantasy outlook would get a bump in Boston because his owners wouldn't have to worry about frequent maintenance days and the shut-down risk if he remains in Dallas. For what it's worth, Blakely believes the Celtics would need to trade Amir Johnson and a future first-round pick to make the deal worth it for Dallas. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:21 am
  • Larry Nance (knee) questionable for Monday
    Larry Nance (right knee contusion) is questionable to play Monday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Nance missed Saturday's showdown in Memphis, which resulted in Julius Randle, Luol Deng and Brandon Ingram logging heavy minutes, and it'll be more of the same if Nance can't give it a go Monday night. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:43 am
  • Malone says DEN is being cautious w/ Jokic
    Nuggets coach Michael Malone said the team is being cautious with Nikola Jokic (wrist).

    Advice: "Talking to Nikola, he wants to play right when he can catch the ball," Malone said. "I think we’ll probably be a little more cautious than that on this road trip, maybe get it looked at again just to kind of see where it’s at once the swelling goes down." He's been ruled out for the next three games, meaning the earliest we could see him back on the court is Saturday against Orlando. Jokic looked great right before the injury and should obviously be stashed everywhere. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:15 am
  • Brandon Knight scores 14 for Suns
    Brandon Knight hit 6-of-12 shots for 14 points, one rebound, two assists, three turnovers and zero 3-pointers in Saturday's loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: T.J. Warren remains out with a mysterious head injury so Knight continues to get run for the Suns. He's been a popular fantasy addition in many leagues, averaging 15 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five, but he's also hitting just 39 percent of his shots and outside of the scoring, the rest of his numbers leave a lot to be desired. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:54 pm
  • Devin Booker heating up for Suns
    Devin Booker played 33 minutes and hit 8-of-17 shots and a 3-pointer for 21 points and five assists in Saturday's loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Booker's over his ankle injury and is averaging 17.2 points, 2.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 3-pointers over his last five games, while shooting 42 percent. While the shooting's a concern, now that he's finally healthy again he should start scoring in bunches. He's had 21, 13 and 30 points in each of his last three games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:44 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe scores 27 in loss to Warriors
    Eric Bledsoe hit 10-of-19 shots and five 3-pointers on his way to 27 points, five rebounds, four assists and five steals in Saturday's blowout 138-109 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: You hardly hear Bledsoe's name this season or see him in the highlight shows, but he's killing it, averaging 22.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 2.4 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 3-pointers over his last five games. He's returning fourth-round value for the season in leagues that don't count turnovers, and his value appears to be climbing right now. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:42 pm
  • P.J. Tucker quietly hot for Suns
    P.J. Tucker had nine points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a 3-pointer on 4-of-11 shooting against Kevin Durant and the Warriors on Sunday.

    Advice: He came into this one hot and at least stayed relevant with the line and is averaging 12.2 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.8 3-pointers on 49 percent shooting over his last five games. It's possible you're holding a player doing less than that, so at least give Tucker a look as long as he's starting for the Suns. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:29 pm
  • Andrew Bogut plays well vs. Bulls
    Andrew Bogut returned from a day of rest and had a season-high eight points, 11 rebounds, two steals and zero blocks in 22 minutes before fouling out on Saturday.

    Advice: He's averaging just 4.8 points, 12.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.5 blocks over his last four games played, and while the rebounds are fun, the non-existent scoring and blocks are not. Add in that he's always a candidate to miss games and he's barely worth owning in most fantasy leagues, especially when an eight-point night in December is your season high in scoring. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:03 pm
  • Rajon Rondo awful in blowout loss to Mavs
    Rajon Rondo, who has made no secret about his disdain for the Mavericks, played just 24 minutes, hit 1-of-4 shots and finished with two points, two rebounds, two assists, a steal and five turnovers in Saturday's ugly loss to his former team.

    Advice: If there was ever a revenge-game scenario that set up well in fantasy hoops, it was tonight with Rondo. And we're still in a bit of shock that he failed to even show up. Rondo was owned in 42 percent of a FanDuel tourney we looked at, so we weren't the only ones drinking the revenge-game Kool Aid. Not to mention that Rondo was coming off a 15-11-12 monster triple-double against the Cavaliers on Friday night. Maybe the back-to-back was too much for him to handle, or maybe he was trying too hard to embarrass Mark Cuban. But Rondo disappeared at the worst time and the Bulls were the ones who were ultimately embarrassed in the 107-82 blowout. He's still averaging 10 points, 8.0 rebounds, 7.6 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.8 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting over his last five, so just forget about this one and prepare for the next. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:48 pm
  • Jamal Murray hits rock bottom Saturday
    Jamal Murray missed all four of his shots and failed to score a point in Saturday's loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: Murray's a mess right now, hitting just 1-of-11 shots in his last two games, and 12-of-45 shots over his last five. After going on a hot streak and scoring between 18 and 24 points in four straight games near Thanksgiving, he hasn't scored more than nine points in any of his last four games. And with Will Barton back and rolling after an ankle injury, the arrow is pointing down on Murray. If you picked him up when he was hot, it's probably time to move on. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:21 pm
  • Will Barton scores 20 in 34 minutes
    Will Barton played through is sore ankle again on Saturday and hit 8-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 20 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block in 34 minutes.

    Advice: He had 17 points, seven boards and five assists on Friday and the fact he made it though back-to-back games should mean the ankle injury is behind him. And with Gary Harris (foot) still out and Jamal Murray as cold as ice, Barton should keep rolling until further notice. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:09 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas torches 76ers late, scores 37
    Isaiah Thomas exploded down the stretch during a 107-106 win over the 76ers on Saturday, scoring a season-high 37 points with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He scored 12 consecutive Celtics points down the stretch to lead his team to the win. He also went to the line a season-high 15 times tonight and made 11-of-19 from the field. Thomas is shooting the ball 0.1 percent worse from the field compared to last year, but his efficiency is up thanks to more treys and going to the line 2.5 more times per game. The free throws have made him a top-three option for the free throw percentage category. Thomas has third-round value on the season and is now a top-10 scorer in the NBA. The Pizza Guy is cookin'. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:48 pm
  • Kyle Korver scores six points, zero 3s
    Kyle Korver hit just 3-of-7 shots and went 0-for-3 from downtown for six points, one assist and two steals in Saturday's humiliating 128-84 loss to the Raptors.

    Advice: While the Hawks, losers of nine of their last 10 games, have many problems right now, their biggest may be the fact that their starting shooting guard and 3-point specialist is averaging 0.5 3-pointers and 4.8 points over his last four games, and has hit just 10-of-33 shots over his last five. Korver hasn't really looked right since the first half of the 2014-15 season, and even though he predicted one of the best years of his career this time around, he's having one of his worst seasons in a long time. He's not even worth owning right now, unless you're desperate for threes and think he can get this thing turned around. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:09 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky bounces back, scores 21
    Frank Kaminsky bounced back in a big way against the Wolves on Saturday, scoring 21 points with nine rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: After scoring a combined three points in his previous two and making just 1-of-15, he was on the other end of the spectrum. Kaminsky scored his first eight points in the first three minutes and kept it going for his 31 minutes. Marvin Williams (knee) is going to miss at least one more and likely more time beyond that, so hopefully Frank can keep it going. He's worth a look. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:59 pm
  • P.J. Tucker will start opposite Kevin Durant
    P.J. Tucker will start at small forward against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: He'll start opposite Kevin Durant. Good luck, Mr. Tucker. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:30 pm
  • Will Barton will play on Saturday
    Will Barton (ankle) will play on Saturday against the Jazz.

    Advice: The Nuggets put him on the report as probable, but he was never in doubt. Barton should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:54 pm
  • Nikola Jokic is out at least 3 more games
    Nikola Jokic (wrist) is expected to be out at least the next three games.

    Advice: Ouch. Just as Jokic turned the corner, he's now going to miss at least four games with his sore wrist. The new timetable means the soonest he can return would be Thursday against the Wizards. With Jokic out, the Nuggets will really need Jusuf Nurkic to play better while Darrell Arthur, Kenneth Faried and Juan Hernangomez could get more playing time. Jokic's owners have to hold him. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:47 pm
  • Larry Nance will not play on Saturday night
    Larry Nance (right knee contusion) will not play against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Advice: The Lakers will be short in the forward department, so there may be a few extra minutes going to Thomas Robinson and Luol Deng. They could also get away with some smaller lineups against the thin Grizzlies squad. Nance is only day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:42 pm
  • Nick Young out of the walking boot
    Nick Young (calf) is out of his walking boot.

    Advice: There's no word of his progressions on his strained calf, so he is still expected to miss the next 1.5-3.5 weeks. With Young out, it's been Brandon Ingram moving over the the two while the other guards have seen a few more minutes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:39 pm
  • Dennis, Kyle, Baze, Muscala & Dwight starting
    Dennis Schroder, Kyle Korver, Kent Bazemore, Mike Muscala and Dwight Howard will start against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: Coach Mike Budenholzer benched his starters to start the second half on Friday due to their woeful -51.3 net rating in the loss. Muscala is the only change for Thabo Sefolosha, which makes sense against the Raptors. Korver is only a borderline hold in fantasy and certainly could use a good game tonight. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:14 pm
  • Marvin Williams out until at least Wednesday
    Marvin Williams (knee) will be out until at least Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: That means he's out Monday against the Mavs. Williams could still miss additional time beyond Wednesday due to the bone bruise in his knee. The Hornets would sure like to see Frank Kaminsky get out of his brutal slump, but he's still worth a look in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:05 pm
  • Luke Babbitt (hip) not expected to play
    Luke Babbitt (hip) is not expected to play and is only available for emergency situations against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: In other words, he's out. Babbitt could miss two weeks due to his hip injury from Thursday night. He also may not have many minutes available once he's back with James Johnson outplaying him and it's possible Justise Winslow (wrist) is back. For tonight, Johnson, Derrick Williams and Wayne Ellington should get some additional run. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:43 am
  • Will Barton (ankle) probable for Saturday
    Will Barton, Danilo Gallinari, and Darrell Arthur are listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. Utah.

    Advice: Barton had missed 12 of the Nuggets previous 15 games, but looked great in his return to the Denver lineup on Friday night. He finished with 17 points, seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes. Better yet, he seems to have avoided aggravating his ankle injury. Barton should be locked and loaded in fantasy lineups going forward. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:58 am
  • Nikola Jokic (wrist) ruled out for Saturday
    Nikola Jokic (left wrist sprain) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: Jokic initially suffered what was believed to be a minor wrist injury on Wedneday. However, it has now cost him two straight games, which stings because Jokic was finally starting to snap out of his season-long slump. Starters Kenneth Faried and Jusuf Nurkic should see more time on Saturday. Darrell Arthur could also see a few extra minutes off the bench, as the Nuggets are playing on the second night of a back-to-back. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:46 am
  • Jamal Murray struggles against HOU
    Jamal Murray scored two points with three rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 17 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: After winning the November Western Conference Rookie of the Month nod, Murray had a really rough time tonight. He didn't score until garbage time with six of his minutes coming in the fourth quarter. Murray's playing time should be taking a dive, so he'll be more of a stash. He had some really bad mistakes on defending the three, which is a quick way to get on coach Mike Malone's bad side. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:47 pm
  • Will Barton scores 17 points in 33 minutes
    Will Barton hit the ground running in his return to the starting lineup on Friday, scoring 17 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Well, he looks like himself again. Barton had been battling his ankle sprain since Halloween and only played in three games since then -- he also was awful in those three with a 21.4 field goal percentage. Simply put, Barton has to be picked up everywhere after this one. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:39 pm
  • Rajon Rondo triple-doubles in win vs. Cavs
    Rajon Rondo triple-doubled against the Cavs on Friday with 15 points, 11 rebounds, 12 assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

    Advice: He's had a few phenomenal matchups to get him going strong and his coach has been impressed with how he runs the offense. "I thought Rondo was great all night long," coach Fred Hoiberg said. "You could hear him yelling 'Run with me' to all the guys all game." Rondo will take his momentum in an ultimate revenge game against the Mavs and Mark Cuban with Dwyane Wade (rest) out. After Saturday, it's not a bad idea to try and sell high off the string of favorable matchups. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:31 pm
  • Budenholzer considering lineup changes?
    Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said "We’ll look at everything" when asked if he will shake up his starting lineup after Friday's 121-85 loss to the Pistons.

    Advice: The Hawks have lost five straight games and seven out of their last eight, so they've got to try something. Coach Bud even benched his entire starting five at halftime because he was looking for a "spark." Kyle Korver has arguably struggled the most and he finished with seven points on 2-of-8 shooting with two rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes Friday, and he's been held to single-digit points in four out of his last five games. Standard-league owners are probably ready to move on. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:12 pm
  • Larry Nance has a right knee contusion
    Larry Nance has been diagnosed with a right knee contusion and is questionable for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

    Advice: He bumped knees on Friday vs. Toronto and will likely be re-evaluated on Saturday morning. Nance finished with six points and six rebounds in 23 minutes. If he sits out, Julius Randle will have a heavy workload and Thomas Robinson should be in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:26 pm
  • Luke Babbitt (hip) questionable Saturday
    Luke Babbitt (hip) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: Coach Erik Spoelstra isn't expecting him to play, so he's probably closer to doubtful. Derrick Williams (back) is also questionable, so we should see a lot of James Johnson and Josh McRoberts. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:01 pm
  • Mudiay, Barton, Gallo, Faried & Nurk starting
    Emmanuel Mudiay, Will Barton, Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried and Jusuf Nurkic will start against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: We'll see how many minutes Barton gets in his return. He's worth a pickup in standard leagues while he will take minutes away from all the other forwards and wings. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:53 pm
  • Will Barton is active as expected
    Will Barton (ankle) will play against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: The earlier report from Chris Haynes of ESPN was as good as gold, so this is not a surprise. Barton may be limited in his first game back, but he's worth a pickup in most leagues. He will take minutes away from Jamal Murray, Jameer Nelson and Wilson Chandler. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:30 pm
  • Nikola Jokic (left wrist) out vs. Rockets
    Nikola Jokic (left wrist) will not play against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: This is a surprise after Jokic played through what looked like a minor wrist injury sustained from Wednesday night. Jokic did say he couldn't move his wrist the following day, so it apparently was worse than it looked. Jokic was really coming on after a rough start with two straight double-doubles. For tonight, it'll be more of Jusuf Nurkic, Kenneth Faried and Darrell Arthur. Plus, there should be more small-ball lineups against the Rockets. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:19 pm
  • Nets sign Motiejunas to $37M offer sheet
    The Nets have signed Donatas Motiejunas to a four-year, $37 million offer sheet.

    Advice: Wow. The Rockets will have three days to match, but that doesn't seem likely. D-Mo didn't have many suitors this summer because his troublesome back raised several red flags, but clearly that didn't faze the Nets. Assuming the Rockets don't match, D-Mo could find minutes at both the four and five in Brooklyn and could have some value in deeper leagues -- he averaged 6.2 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.4 treys in 14.8 minutes per game in 2015-16 with Houston. For now, Trevor Booker's owners shouldn't be too worried. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:40 pm
  • Paul Millsap (hip) out Friday and Saturday
    Paul Millsap (hip) will not play against the Pistons on Friday and is also out for Saturday against the Raptors.

    Advice: These DNPs will be his second and third games out of the lineup. Despite going scoreless on Wednesday, Mike Muscala should get another start while Mike Scott could also see a few extra minutes than his four on Wednesday. Millsap's injury doesn't sound serious and it may be more about pain tolerance, so he could make it back for Monday against the Thunder. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:32 pm
  • Marvin Williams still out for Saturday
    Marvin Williams (knee) is still out for Saturday against the Wolves.

    Advice: He is expected to be re-evaluated this weekend to check on the progress of his bone bruise. Williams was having a rough season before the injury with only a 33.6 field goal percentage, but Frank Kaminsky has been even worse since Williams went down. Kaminsky should still play a lot while Spencer Hawes did see some extra time on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:38 pm
  • Suns looking to get more dimes?
    The Suns are looking to add more passing into their offense.

    Advice: "It’s been stagnant at times," Eric Bledsoe said of the team’s passing. "But at the end of the day, everybody is happy with how the offense is going. The heart of our team is me, Brandon and Devin. We’re going to have the ball the majority of times." The Suns are 29th in dimes per game and lead the NBA in unassisted baskets per game. There shouldn't be much change overall, but more dimes could add more fantasy value to the Phoenix guards. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:33 pm
  • Nikola Jokic likely to be a game-time call
    Nikola Jokic (left wrist) is shaping up to be a game-time decision for Friday's game against the Rockets.

    Advice: On Wednesday night, Jokic was pushed to the ground and braced himself with his left wrist, so that's likely when he suffered the injury. Jokic did stay in the game and it doesn't sound serious. He's playing some outstanding ball and does appear to have a good chance to play. If he's out, more run will go to Jusuf Nurkic, Kenneth Faried and a number of other forwards. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:23 am
  • Will Barton (ankle) will play Friday night
    ESPN is reporting that Will Barton (ankle) will play Friday night vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Barton started off the year strong, averaging 18 points and five rebounds in 35 minutes over Denver's first three games of the season. However, he has missed 12 of the Nuggets last 15 games due to this nagging ankle injury. It is unknown if Barton will be on a minute restriction Friday. If you have room on your roster and he is still floating around your league's waiver wire, now is the time to nab him. Barton finished last season ranked among the top-85 overall fantasy players, according to BasketballReference.com. Barton's return will likely eat into the minutes of Wilson Chandler and Jamal Murray. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:03 am
  • Rockets hope to keep Donatas Motiejunas
    Donatas Motiejunas is expected to sign an offer sheet with the Nets, but the Rockets are not ready to give up hope that they might him.

    Advice: Rockets general manager Daryl Morey has been told to expect to receive an offer sheet, possibly as soon as Friday. Motiejunas had met with the Brooklyn Nets this week and had been examined by their team physicians as the Nets prepare an offer sheet. "We're big fans of Donatas," Morey said. "We hope to have him at some point this year. It's our understanding he will probably sign something in the next day. We won't know until it's official. We don't know how much it will be." The Rockets would have three days to match an offer sheet or let him join the Nets. From a fantasy perspective, landing in Brooklyn offers more upside for Motiejunas. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:07 am
  • Luke Babbitt dealing with a hip-flexor strain
    Luke Babbitt is dealing with a hip-flexor strain but did fly to Portland and expected to remain with the team until their Sunday flight back to Miami.

    Advice: Babbit left Thursday’s game with 4:07 left in the second quarter and did not return. Coach Spoelstra said Babbitt's injury is similar to the one that will have Dion Waiters out for at least two weeks. "Probably a little bit similar to Dion," he acknowledged after Thursday night's game. "We'll find out more. But it's a hip-flexor strain. It's not a contusion. So we'll evaluate him." Wayne Ellington started the second half in place of Babbitt, and would see an increase in minutes if Babbitt misses time. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:21 am
  • In the Tank: Frank Kaminsky scores one point
    Frank Kaminsky had a rough night during his start against the Mavs on Thursday, scoring one point with three rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes.

    Advice: Yuck. Kaminsky has gone in the tank since he was given an added opportunity. In the five games since the Marvin Williams (knee) injury, Kaminsky made just 25.9 percent from the field for 8.4 points, 5.2 boards, 2.6 assists and 0.6 treys. This was really the first time his minutes took a big hit, so he may bounce back. That said, we don't fault you at all for wanting to move on to someone else. His value will certainly drop once Marvin comes back. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:26 pm
  • Luke Babbit (hip) ruled out
    Luke Babbit will miss the remainder of Thursday’s game against the Jazz with a hip flexor.

    Advice: Babbit left Thursday’s game with 4:07 left in the half and will not return. If he misses an extensive amount of time, Wayne Ellington and James Johnson, who have been hot, should see an increased role, while Derrick Williams could also get back into the rotation. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:20 pm
  • Luke Babbit (back) goes to locker room
    Luke Babbit left Thursday’s game against the Jazz with 4:07 left in the half due to back tightness.

    Advice: Babbit headed to the locker room after tweaking his back and is questionable to return. He played seven minutes, scoring one point and one steal. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:57 pm
  • Nikola Jokic pops up on the injury report
    Nikola Jokic (left wrist) is questionable to face the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: This is surprising for Jokic, who didn't appear to be hurt during Wednesday's game against the Heat. Jokic is expected to see a few extra minutes and coach Mike Malone wants to run more offense through him. Hopefully, Jokic goes through shootaround and we can get more information on his wrist issue on Friday morning. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:18 pm
  • Paul Millsap (hip) is questionable for Friday
    Paul Millsap is listed as questionable to play against the Pistons on Friday.

    Advice: The Hawks are on a back-to-back set with another game in Toronto on Saturday. Millsap was playing through his hip injury for about a week before he missed Wednesday against the Suns. He'll likely be a game-time call for the 8:00 start. If he can't go, Mike Muscala should play close to 30 minutes with a few more minutes going to Mike Scott (knee), assuming Scott is a go. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:02 pm
  • Jokic to get extended minutes?
    Coach Mike Malone said he's made an effort to give Nikola Jokic extended minutes.

    Advice: "Even though [Jusuf Nurkic] has been starting, Jokic been getting the lion share of minutes at center and I think I’ve been making a more concerted effort when he is out there to play through him," Malone said. Jokic has been terrific in his last two games, averaging 15.0 points, 12.5 boards, 3.0 assists and 0.5 blocks in his 27.5 minutes per game. After a horrible start, he's trending up big time.

  • Will Barton (ankle) likely to play on Friday
    Will Barton (ankle) is likely to play against the Rockets on Friday night.

    Advice: He's been limited by his ankle injury dating back to Halloween, playing in just three games at 21.0 minutes per outing in that span. Barton has said he wants to be 100 percent before he gives it a go, so maybe that's the case. Since he's been out for the last three, Jameer Nelson and Jamal Murray have both improved. Plus, Wilson Chandler has played more minutes at the three. Barton's playing time is uncertain, so he's not as strong of a pickup this time around. He can get hot, so he's worth a long look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:30 pm
  • Nets preparing Donatas Motiejunas offer sheet
    The Nets are reportedly preparing an offer sheet for Donatas Motiejunas.

    Advice: Assuming the Rockets don't match the offer sheet in the next three days, Motiejunas will become a member of the Nets. It's unclear what shape he's in, but he's worth a speculative pickup in deeper leagues as he'll see minutes in Brooklyn. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:54 am
  • Brandon Knight scores 23 inefficient points
    Brandon Knight caught a tailwind on Wednesday, scoring 23 points with five rebounds, two assists, two steals and three turnovers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: Knight went just 6-of-18 from the field, but he hit all three of his 3-point attempts and he was 8-of-9 at the FT line. The overall scoring looks impressive but he came in shooting 37.5 percent from the field this season, a number that will drop after tonight's high-volume, low-efficiency performance. He's hurting owners in most roto leagues and a trade isn't necessarily a panacea. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:52 pm
  • P.J. Tucker efficient in win vs. visiting ATL
    P.J. Tucker led the Suns' starters on Wednesday with 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting, hitting two 3-pointers with three rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Tucker has been on fire for his past two games, with a combined 12-of-19 mark from the field, including 2.5 threes, 5.5 rebounds. 1.5 assists and 0.5 steals. T.J. Warren (head) is out indefinitely, which opens up more opportunities for Tucker, but he's not a strong rest-of-season addition. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:50 pm
  • Nikola Jokic posts 17 & 14 w/ three assists
    Nikola Jokic had another productive evening on Wednesday with 17 points, 14 rebounds, three assists and one steal, making 7-of-11 FG and 3-of-4 FTs in 24 minutes.

    Advice: "We took a big step back tonight, and that's disappointing," coach Mike Malone said after the game. That quote isn't likely to apply to Jokic, who was one of three players to finish with a positive +/- rating, and he's quietly on the upswing for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:59 pm
  • Jamal Murray quiet again in loss to Miami
    Jamal Murray had another quiet game during Wednesday's loss to the Heat, scoring nine points on 3-of-10 shooting in 23 minutes of action.

    Advice: Will Barton (ankle) and Gary Harris (foot) were both sidelined again, and Murray's owners should strap in for a bumpy ride. The rookie had been red-hot but scouting reports were bound to catch up to him, and he's a combined 11-of-34 from the field in his past three games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:55 pm
  • Rajon Rondo's efficient 14/8/6 isn't enough
    Rajon Rondo notched 14 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on Wednesday, with just one turnover in 36 minutes.

    Advice: The Bulls lost tonight but they have a 3-0 record this season when Rondo hands out 10+ assists, which highlights his importance to the offense. The problem tonight wasn't a lack of distribution, but a lack of shot-making -- Rondo (6-of-12 FGs) and Bobby Portis (1-of-2 FGs) were the only Bulls players to shoot at least 50 percent, with the team going a combined 35.2 percent from the field. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:01 pm
  • Larry Nance posts double-double in 26 minutes
    Larry Nance was productive in 26 minutes vs. Chicago on Wednesday with 12 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and one assist.

    Advice: Nance made 5-of-8 shots with just one turnover and he's a sneaky late-round value despite playing just 21.8 minutes per game. The presence of Julius Randle continues to cap his ceiling, and he's not a great option in points leagues, but roto owners should give him a look for high-efficiency offense, low turnovers, and a handful of boards and defensive stats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:54 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas' 27 points not enough Wednesday
    Isaiah Thomas scored a team-high 27 points in a losing effort on Wednesday, going 10-of-20 from the field and 4-of-4 from the free throw line.

    Advice: Thomas made three 3-pointers with four assists and just two turnovers, but he didn't have any rebounds, steals or blocks. He's been a steady third-round fantasy value this year, proving impervious to the addition of Al Horford and the improved play of guys like Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:39 pm
  • Paul Millsap out, Mike Muscala will start
    Paul Millsap (hip) will not play against the Suns on Wednesday and Mike Muscala will start in his place.

    Advice: He went through some warmups in Phoenix, but the Hawks will just hold him out. Millsap suffered the injury last week and has been playing through it. He is only day-to-day and has a decent chance to play this weekend. Besides a big bump to Muscala, Mike Scott should benefit. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:22 pm
  • Paul Millsap (left hip) a game-time decision
    Paul Millsap (left hip) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with the Suns.

    Advice: Millsap will go through his pregame routine before making an official determination on his status for tonight's game, but if he's out, Mike Muscala would draw the start and he'd definitely be on the DFS radar. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:39 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell to have doc visit Monday
    D'Angelo Russell (knee) will see a doctor on Monday.

    Advice: He's progressing just fine from his PRP treatment and should be back next week at some point. Russell didn't have any structural damage to his knee, but he's been dealing with soreness since before the season. He's a solid buy-low target. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:32 pm
  • Paul Millsap (left hip) questionable vs. Suns
    Paul Millsap (left hip) is questionable to face the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: The injury occurred against the Jazz last week, but he was able to play through it against the Warriors on Monday. Millsap has struggled with his shot lately and is down to just 43.8 percent from the field on the year. Hopefully he can play tonight in a very favorable matchup for him. If he is out, Mike Scott (knee) should get a big bump in his debut while Mike Muscala also benefits. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:08 pm
  • Nick Young (right calf) will miss 2-4 weeks
    Nick Young (strained right calf) will miss the next 2-4 weeks.

    Advice: An MRI confirmed his injury, which occurred in the first quarter on Tuesday night. Young was having a very solid season with career highs in field goal percentage, free throw percentage and 3-point percentage, but now his fantasy owners probably have to cut him. While he's out, the Lakers will have to lean more on Jose Calderon and Marcelo Huertas until D'Angelo Russell (knee) can return. Both Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams should be very busy while more shots should go to rookie Brandon Ingram. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:49 am
  • Nick Young (Achilles) out Wednesday vs. CHI
    Nick Young (right Achilles) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

    Advice: The Lakers haven't yet released the results of Young's MRI, so we won't be speculating on the length of his absence until that information is made available. With Young on the sidelines Wednesday night, Jordan Clarkson will more than likely move into the starting lineup, and he'll get all the run he can handle with D'Angelo Russell (knee) also unavailable. Lou Williams should also see an uptick in value, as he won't have to share the floor with a teammate that steals his passes tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:31 am
  • Nick Young (Achilles) sporting a walking boot
    Nick Young (right Achilles strain) was spotted leaving the Smoothie King Center wearing a walking boot.

    Advice: Young was also able to put pressure on his foot while limping around the Lakers' locker room after Tuesday's game, and he was in high spirits, although Uncle P is eternally optimistic. He's scheduled to undergo an MRI once the Lakers arrive in Chicago, but for now, we'll be considering him doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Bulls. If he's out, Jordan Clarkson will get all the burn he can handle and Brandon Ingram will see some increased opportunity with the second unit. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:06 am
  • Frank Kaminsky bottoms out on Tuesday
    Frank Kaminsky played 27 minutes and hit just 1-of-11 shots for two points, three rebounds and three assists in Tuesday's loss to the Pistons.

    Advice: Ouch. He was also 0-for-6 from downtown and after stringing together a run of six straight double-digit scoring nights, he simply couldn't get it going tonight. Marvin Williams is still hurt and Jeremy Lamb went down tonight, so Kaminsky's minutes and starting role should be safe for now. If you recently picked him up, pretend like you never saw this line and get ready for his next game. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:33 pm
  • Nick Young (Achilles strain) won't return
    Nick Young (right Achilles strain) will not return on Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Young needed the help of his teammates to get back to the locker room and the Lakers ruled him out for the game after just a few minutes. Young will have an MRI on Wednesday and the Lakers will provide an update at that time. His status for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls isn't looking great right now. Jordan Clarkson is looking at heavy minutes if Young misses additional time. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:25 pm
  • Nick Young goes to locker room Tuesday
    Nick Young (right leg) left Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans and went to the locker room. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:19 pm
  • Kyle Korver held to three points in loss
    Kyle Korver scored just three points (a triple) with three assists, two rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 30 minutes against the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: Yikes. Korver was just 1-of-6 from the field and this was his second three-point outing in his last three games. If there's a hot free agent on your waiver wire, it may be tough to hold onto Korver unless you desperately need 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:52 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky scores 12 points in win
    Frank Kaminsky scored 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting in Monday's win over the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Kaminsky and Kemba Walker were the only starters who eclipsed the 30-minute mark in the blowout, so we know Frank the Tank is going to get plenty of minutes with Marvin Williams (knee) out for at least a week. He grabbed six rebounds with three assists, but he missed all four of his triples. Kaminsky is not going to light it up, but he should do enough to help standard-league owners for at least the next week or so. Williams was struggling before the injury, so it's not impossible for Kaminsky to hold onto his new job. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:38 pm
  • Rudy Gay fills stat sheet in OT loss
    Rudy Gay hit 7-of-16 shots and a 3-pointer for 18 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals, a block, six turnovers and five fouls in 38 minutes of Monday's overtime loss to the Wizards.

    Advice: He's had at least a 3-pointer, a steal and a block in three of his last five games and is averaging 18 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.4 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.6 3-pointers on 48 percent shooting over that stretch. Trade rumors had him as a gloom-and-doom fantasy prospect coming into the season, but he's been one of the more pleasant surprises of the season. And is showing no signs of slowing down. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:09 pm
  • Luke Babbitt quiet in start for Heat
    Luke Babbitt started over Josh Richardson on Monday but hit just 2-of-7 shots for four points, two rebounds, one assist and a steal in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Things were looking up for Richardson with Dion Waiters out tonight, but the move to the bench didn't do him any favors. As for Babbitt, he's failed to answer the call every time he's gotten an opportunity this season, so there's no reason to think about adding him in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:53 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas hit 7-of-23 shots in win
    Isaiah Thomas hit just 7-of-23 shots and 2-of-10 3-pointers, but also made all nine of his free throws en route to 25 points, four rebounds, eight assists, a steal and just one turnover in 35 minutes of Monday's win over the Heat.

    Advice: Not the most efficient night for IT2, but the free throws and lack of TOs were nice. He's having a big season, but his 37 percent shooting from the floor over his last five games is a bit of a buzzkill. Hopefully his shots start falling again sooner than later. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:25 pm
  • Babbitt starting, Richardson to the bench
    Luke Babbitt will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Celtics, sending Josh Richardson to the bench.

    Advice: Erik Spoelstra will role out a starting five of Goran Dragic, Rodney McGruder, Babbitt, Derrick Williams and Hassan Whiteside (knee) for Monday's game, and while Richardson will be coming off the bench, it's tough to envision a scenario where he doesn't exceed 30 minutes. Spoelstra is likely just bringing him off the bench to help infuse some offense into the second unit, so while Babbitt will start, Richardson remains the preferable fantasy target. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:50 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell says knee is doing 'better'
    D'Angelo Russell said over the weekend that his knee was feeling better.

    Advice: He was able to get up some set shots on Saturday, but he's still expected to be sidelined for about two more weeks. "Definitely don’t want to force anything back," Russell said. "I feel like I got to be 100 percent perfect before I step back on the floor." Russell will be re-evaluated later this week, at which point the Lakers will provide an update on his timetable. He needs to be stashed everywhere, while Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams will continue to benefit in his absence. Rotoworld.com Nov 28, 9:17 am
  • Larry Nance (thumb) gets 12 & 10 vs. Hawks
    Larry Nance (sprained right thumb) came off the bench on Sunday for a season-high 10 rebounds with 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting and three assists in 32 minutes.

    Advice: The thumb injury didn't inhibit Nance tonight and he crashed the glass with his usual gusto, getting four of his boards on the offensive end. He's a solid streaming option while Julius Randle is out, and he could hold value even after Randle returns. Nance isn't a great points-league option but his efficiency has secured top-100 value through L.A.'s first 17 games. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 9:50 pm
  • Nick Young (toe) returns with 17-point game
    Nick Young (toe) returned in style on Sunday with 17 points on 6-of-12 field goals, including 4-of-5 shooting from downtown.

    Advice: Young slotted into his normal starting SG spot, as coach Luke Walton seems pleased with the backcourt rotation he's established early in the season. He didn't do much beyond scoring tonight, adding just one rebound and one steal, but he remains a viable late-round option in most formats. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 9:48 pm
  • Rudy Gay posts 22/8/8 in win vs. Brooklyn
    Rudy Gay had a nice all-around game on Sunday, scoring 22 points on 8-of-15 shooting with eight rebounds, eight assists, three 3-pointers, one steal, one block and two turnovers.

    Advice: Long-time Kings writer Ailene Voisin reported this weekend that Gay "still wants out" of Sacramento, which is no surprise since he's already said he'll decline his 2017-18 player option. To his credit, Gay's dissatisfaction hasn't prevented him from returning top-40 value this season, averaging 19.5 points, 1.2 threes, 6.2 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.8 blocks. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 6:13 pm
  • Larry Nance (thumb) will play Sunday vs. ATL
    Larry Nance (sprained right thumb) will play on Sunday.

    Advice: Nance was listed as probable so this simply confirms his status, and his availability is good news with Julius Randle (hip) missing another game tonight. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 4:57 pm
  • Brandon Knight logs 17 mins off the bench
    Brandon Knight hit 2-of-10 shots in his 17 minutes off the bench on Sunday, finishing the game with just 11 points, two rebounds and three turnovers.

    Advice: It's been a bumpy ride for Knight owners this season, as he's currently ranked well outside the top-200 in standard 9-cat leagues owning averages of 12.5 points, 2.9 assists, 1.1 triples and not much else on 37.5 percent shooting. However, the Suns are just 5-12 on the year, and Knight just really doesn't make sense on the roster, so it's not outlandish to assume he could be traded at some point. A trade could only be good for his value, so he's a hold in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 4:32 pm
  • P.J. Tucker scores season-high 21 points
    P.J. Tucker moved into the starting lineup on Sunday and scored a season-high 21 points on 6-of-10 shooting to go with eight rebounds, three 3-pointers, one assist and one steal in 42 minutes.

    Advice: This was Tucker's 10th career game with 20-plus points, so don't expect the scoring to become a regular thing for the five-year veteran. He can, however, provide sneaky low-end value in deep leagues with his ability to contribute a little bit of everything to the box score, and with T.J. Warren still a few weeks away, he makes sense as a speculative add in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 4:21 pm
  • Devin Booker scores 30 points with four treys
    Devin Booker scored 30 points on 11-of-27 shooting Sunday, to go with four 3-pointers, three rebounds, four assists, one steal and one turnover in 36 minutes.

    Advice: This was the 10th time that Booker has hit the 30-point plateau, and it was his forth time doing so this season. Scoring has never been an issue for the sharpshooter out of Kentucky, but doing so efficiently (41.6 percent shooting on the season), has been a bit of a problem. He also rarely contributes much on the defensive end, which is why he's only been a late-round guy on the year. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 4:12 pm
  • Eric Bledsoe scores career-high 35 points
    Eric Bledsoe went off for a career-high 35 points Sunday, adding four 3-pointers, six rebounds, six assists, two steals, two blocks and three turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: This was Bledsoe's 10th career 30-point game, and the four 3-pointers also tied a career-high. He got off to a slow start this year, but he's been a top-50 play over the past six with averages of 22.7 points, 6.3 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.8 treys and 4.0 turnovers per game while his usage rate has spiked to 32.5. This hot streak does happen to coincide with T.J. Warren (head) hitting the sidelines, but it would be surprising to see a significant drop-off in production when T.J. gets back. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 4:06 pm
  • Jamal Murray cools down, scores just 9 points
    Jamal Murray's hot streak came to an end on Sunday, as he hit just 3-of-8 shots in 22 minutes off the bench, finishing the game with nine points, four boards, two assists, one triple and one turnover.

    Advice: Foul trouble was an issue for Murray in this one, but with Gary Harris (foot) still weeks away and Will Barton (ankle) banged up, it makes sense to hold onto the rookie if you swooped him up during his hot streak. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 3:57 pm
  • Brandon Knight will return to the bench Sun
    Brandon Knight will return to the bench for Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

    Advice: While Knight loses roughly four minutes a game when he comes off the bench, his value is actually a bit better as he has more opportunities to create running with the second unit. He hasn't been great this season, but his name has been floated around in some trade rumors as of late, so he's a hold in most leagues as his value could improve dramatically outside of Phoenix. P.J. Tucker will draw the start tonight. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 12:00 pm
  • P.J. Tucker starting, Knight to the bench
    P.J. Tucker will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Nuggets, sending Brandon Knight to the bench.

    Advice: Tucker can rack up the steals when given the minutes, so he's on the radar as a potential streamer option with a favorable matchup against Denver tonight. Knight's value is going to take a bit of a hit with the move to the bench. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 11:51 am
  • Rudy Gay 'still wants out' of Sacramento
    According to Ailene Voisin of the Sacramento Bee, Rudy Gay "still wants out" of Sacramento.

    Advice: The Kings are off to a 6-10 start and Gay, DeMarcus Cousins and Omri Casspi have all been linked to a move out of Sacramento. Gay told the Kings during the offseason that he was going to decline his player option for the 2017-18 season and it's pretty obvious that he won't re-sign, so the franchise could let him walk him for nothing unless they find a trade partner. For what it's worth, Gay has already been linked to the Thunder and the Heat this season. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 7:42 am
