  • Dennis Schroder good to go
    After missing Wednesday's practice due to travel issues, Dennis Schroder had his work visa issues straightened out.

    Advice: He should be all set for Friday against the Heat. Schroder has cooled off a little this month with his February averages points, assists and treys all down from January. He is still logging 30 minutes per game and has another shooter to pass to in Ersan Ilysasova. The Hawks are looking to add more, too. Rotoworld.com 38 minutes ago
  • Report: Reggie Jackson likely 'staying put'
    Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today is hearing that Reggie Jackson likely won't go anywhere at the deadline.

    Advice: The Pistons have a high asking price, yet Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported on Wednesday night that a lot of teams don't view Jackson as a starter. Unless the rumors ramp up, Ish Smith is losing some stash appeal with a Jackson trade looking unlikely. According to Chris Mannix of The Vertical, the Pistons will continue to aggressively shop him and they are looking for a first-round pick, a young player or an expiring contract.

  • Quincy Pondexter, Ajinca on the block?
    The Pelicans are looking to move Alexis Ajinca or Quincy Pondexter, according to David Aldridge of NBA.com.

    Advice: This is a pretty logical report with the Pelicans looking to clear out some money to allow them to sign DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday in the next two summers. They would have to trade away other assets for a team to take on either of these two deals. Rotoworld.com 52 minutes ago
  • 76ers could put Sergio on a contender
    The 76ers could trade Sergio Rodriguez to a contender, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

    Advice: To be clear, this sounds more like a feeling than a report, but it's worth a mention for a team that is almost certainly making at least one move today. If Rodriguez is gone, Chasson Randle would be the backup to T.J. McConnell. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:02 am
  • Nuggets open to dealing Will Barton?
    The Nuggets are "open to trading" Will Barton, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: As you've probably heard, the expectation is Danilo Gallinari and/or Wilson Chandler could be dealt. Barton has a very, very cap-friendly deal with $3.5 million for next season. If he is traded, that would be good news for Jamal Murray. He's still not a stash in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:57 am
  • Wizards shopping Trey Burke?
    The Wizards are reportedly shopping Trey Burke.

    Advice: Washington is asking for a second-round pick, but even that sounds ambitious. Burke is shooting 38.9 percent from the field in his career and has struggled on both sides of the court. If he's moved and the Wizards don't get a PG in return, Tomas Satoransky will get a bump. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:47 am
  • Jazz has conversations about Derrick Favors?
    The Jazz have had "light conversations" with teams about trading Derrick Favors, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

    Advice: Favors is still under contract for next season, but the Jazz could be in a pickle to re-sign him. Gordon Hayward will need a max deal, they already paid up for Rudy Gobert, and Rodney Hood will be a restricted free agent next summer, as well. To be clear, it would be a surprise to see Favors dealt today. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:42 am
  • ESPN & Woj: Raptors interested in Tucker
    The "big Deadline Day decision" for the Raptors is whether to surrender a first-round pick with Jared Sullinger for P.J. Tucker, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: Late on Wednesday night, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported the Raptors are interested in Tucker, so they appear to be the favorite to land him. Of course, there have been rumors for the Celtics, Jazz, Hawks, Wizards and Clippers. Tucker is among the most-likely players to be deal today, which would open up minutes for T.J. Warren. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:37 am
  • Suns shopping Knight and Tyson with no luck?
    According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Suns are still shopping Brandon Knight and Tyson Chandler.

    Advice: Stein adds that the Suns have "struggled all week for traction on their guys," so a deal for Knight or Chandler isn't likely at the moment. Both players are signed to long-term contracts and not many teams are willing to give up draft picks right now. Chandler is a hold in standard leagues, while Knight belongs on the wire. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:36 am
  • Woj: Rubio a 'significant target' for Knicks
    Ricky Rubio remains a "significant target" for the Knicks on Thursday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: Woj added late on Wednesday night that at least a couple teams received a call from Minnesota about Ricky Rubio, so the Knicks could be one of them. Woj also added that the Derrick Rose rumors have lost some steam with no teams really interested in him right now. Tyus Jones and Kris Dunn could be decent stashes for PG-needy owners in competitive leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:28 am
  • Doug McDermott 'in play' at the deadline
    According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Doug McDermott is "in play" at the deadline.

    Advice: From the sounds of things, every Bull appears to be available for the right price leading up to the deadline, but Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic are the most likely to be moved. This report is still in the rumor stage and McDermott hasn't been linked to any teams yet, but we'll keep a close eye on this. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:24 am
  • Suns interested in Mindaugas Kuzminskas?
    According to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders, the Suns are interested in Mindaugas Kuzminskas.

    Advice: The rookie forward has been a nice surprise for the Knicks, so New York isn't going to just give him away -- he's on a reasonable contract valued at $2.95 million in 2017-18 and $3.68 million in 2018-19. The Suns are possibly going to deal P.J. Tucker at the deadline, so a potential move to the Suns for Kuzminskas could be good for his fantasy value. Nothing is imminent and there are better stashes at the moment. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:20 am
  • Bulls won't give up a 1st rounder for Okafor?
    According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the Bulls have "shown no inclination" to include a first-round pick in a potential deal for Jahlil Okafor.

    Advice: This goes to show how much value Okafor has around the league. We've heard reports that the Bulls are offering Nikola Mirotic for Okafor, but that's probably not going to cut it for Philly. Okafor will be one of the most popular names in the rumor mill today so this won't be the last thing you hear about him leading up to the deadline. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:12 am
  • Taj Gibson a trade target for the Thunder?
    According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Taj Gibson has emerged as a trade target for the Thunder.

    Advice: The 31-year-old PF is playing on a $8.95 million expiring contract, and with the Bulls considering a rebuild, his name has been in the rumor mill for a while. You would think that Gibson would get a short-term boost in OKC with Enes Kanter (arm) on the shelf, but the big man went through a non-contact practice on Wednesday and is said to be nearing a return. A trade would likely hurt Gibson's value, but Bobby Portis would instantly become relevant since coach Fred Hoiberg said that he is officially ahead of Nikola Mirotic on the depth chart. For now, the Bulls are asking for a first-round pick in return for Gibson. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:06 am
  • Heat shopping Wayne Ellington with McRoberts?
    The Heat have been shopping Wayne Ellington and Josh McRoberts as a package, according to Chris Mannix of The Vertical.

    Advice: Mannix notes that the Heat "appear interested in moving contracts." Ellington has a non-guaranteed $6.3 million salary next season, while McRoberts has a $6.0 million player option. There are zero teams linked to this 'package', for good reason, and we're not reading much into it with the deadline less than 24 hours away. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:11 pm
  • Pistons open to dealing Drummond, KCP?
    The Pistons are reportedly "welcoming offers" for Andre Drummond and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: The report goes on to state that Detroit has been most aggressive in trade talks involving Reggie Jackson, whereas they have "not discouraged offers from interested teams" for Drummond and KCP. Stan Van Gundy has proven to be an opportunistic trade-maker, and the Pistons could make a move before the deadline, but right now there aren't any clear fantasy adds. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:56 pm
  • K.C. Johnson: Bulls shopping Nikola Mirotic
    The Bulls have reportedly been shopping Nikola Mirotic in recent trade talks.

    Advice: Mirotic is a restricted free agent but the Bulls appear to have soured on him, and coach Fred Hoiberg hinted on Wednesday that Bobby Portis has leap-frogged him in the rotation. Mirotic could have interesting fantasy appeal in the right situation, but he's been maddeningly inconsistent as an NBA player. It's worth noting that he was an apparent DNP-CD on Feb. 16, the Bulls' final game before the break. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:59 pm
  • Report: Bulls still pushing for Jahlil Okafor
    The Bulls have "continued to push on a trade" for Jahlil Okafor, according to The Vertical.

    Advice: Chicago and Philadelphia are having ongoing discussions and if Okafor doesn't end up with the Bulls, it's still likely that he'll find himself wearing another jersey after the break. The Celtics, Pacers and Kings have also been tied to Okafor -- it depends upon the players involved, but Sacramento looks like the ideal team for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:55 pm
  • Woj: Ersan Ilyasova heading from PHI to ATL
    The 76ers are finalizing a trade that will send Ersan Ilyasova to Atlanta in exchange for Tiago Splitter and two second-round picks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    Advice: The Sixers are expected to receive one second-round pick, while swapping another one. The Hawks are buyers at the deadline and Ilyasova gives them some welcome frontcourt depth, adding a stretch-PF behind Paul Millsap, but his fantasy value takes a hit with the move. If your waiver wire is barren he might be worth holding, to see how the rotation plays out, but the trade deadline is likely to create many more intriguing rest-of-season pickups. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:29 pm
  • Andrew Bogut doesn't practice on Wednesday
    Andrew Bogut did not practice on Wednesday night.

    Advice: This could be due to the Mavs looking to trade away Bogut on Thursday. Bogut has an expiring deal and there haven't been too many reports of teams after him, so he is unlikely to fetch much in the trade market. He's also a buyout candidate. If Bogut isn't on the Mavs on Friday, Dwight Powell and Salah Mejri would benefit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:01 pm
  • Deron Williams, Andrew Bogut don't practice
    Deron Williams and Andrew Bogut did not practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Rick Carlisle said everyone can "read into what you want" about this move being tied to the trade deadline. Owner Mark Cuban has also talked about the Mavs taking on salary to get a draft pick. The Mavs aren't under the cap right now, so that makes dealing veterans even more likely. Deron would almost certainly lose fantasy value on a new team. Yogi Ferrell is still a hold. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:58 pm
  • Shabazz Muhammad on Rockets' radar?
    Shabazz Muhammad is another player on Houston's radar.

    Advice: This report adds that it doesn't sound like anything is close. Muhammad's name has popped up before with some rumors tied to the Suns and he could be dealt as coach Tom Thibodeau tries to mold the team in his image. He doesn't have much fantasy value regardless. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:38 pm
  • Woj: Wizards acquire Bojan Bogdanovic
    The Wizards will acquire Bojan Bogdanovic and Chris McCullough in a trade with the Nets, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: The Nets will get back Andrew Nicholson, Marcus Thornton and a lottery-protected 2017 first-round pick. The Wizards lost out on the Lou Williams sweepstakes, so they'll go after the next easy trade target out there. Bogdanovic's playing time was really trending up with 29.4 minutes per game in February, averaging 15.1 points, 5.3 boards, 1.6 assists and 1.7 treys. Obviously his value will be falling off a cliff in fantasy. Meanwhile, guys like Caris LeVert, Sean Kilpatrick, Joe Harris and Thornton should all be looking to pick up some of that playing time. Most owners can take a wait-and-see approach, especially with Jeremy Lin likely to return. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:59 pm
  • Chris Paul cleared, could play Thursday night
    Chris Paul (thumb) has been cleared to play and could play Thursday against the Warriors.

    Advice: It would appear he's almost certainly going to beat his target of early March. Coach Doc Rivers said Paul looked good in practice, but the team has yet to decide for sure on CP3's status in the "Cool Story, Glen" game to start the second half. CP3's return means Jamal Crawford, Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers will all be taking massive hits and are drop candidates. Blake Griffin has also busted loose as a passer with 7.8 assists per game over his last five, so that stat will be dropping, as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:05 pm
  • Darren Collison told he will stay
    Darren Collison said general manager Vlade Divac told him he doesn't plan to trade him at the deadline.

    Advice: To be clear, this doesn't exactly mean much with the Kings going into a full sell mode following the Boogie Cousins deal. Several reports say he is as good as gone, which would obviously cripple his fantasy value. If he can stay with Sacramento, Collison could flirt with early-round value. For what it's worth, Collison has a 26.7 usage rate when he's not on the court with Boogie compared to 18.2 with him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:30 am
  • Woj: Pistons open to dealing KCP
    The Pistons have been "open" to possibly trading Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.

    Advice: Woj did add he doesn't think this will happen. He also said the Pistons "love" him and do want to try to sign him as a restricted free agent this summer, but the team likely doesn't want to pay him close to max money. With teams like the Nets having a lot of cap space, Caldwell-Pope could get a monster deal a la Allen Crabbe. For now, it would be a surprise to see KCP be traded. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:12 am
  • Dennis Schroder doesn't practice Wednesday
    Dennis Schroder was not present during Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: Schroder has experienced some travel issues on his way back to the USA from Germany, but the Hawks don't play until Friday, so he still has some time to make it back stateside. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:57 am
  • Dallas not discussing Williams deal w/ Utah?
    The Mavs reportedly have not had any discussions with the Jazz regarding a Deron Williams deal.

    Advice: With a plethora of point guards already on the roster, Utah going after a guy like Williams just doesn't make much sense. That being said, Williams' name has come up in a few trade rumors, so deep league GMs may want to consider stashing away Yogi Ferrell as we approach deadline day. Williams will likely lose value outside of Dallas. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:47 am
  • Report: Phil Jackson is a fan of Ricky Rubio
    Phil Jackson is reportedly a fan of Ricky Rubio.

    Advice: According to David Aldridge, Tom Thibodeau is "not really enamored" with Ricky Rubio right now, and he feels Derrick Rose would be an "upgrade" at the point guard position, which is a pretty fascinating take. A straight up Rose-Rubio swap would work under the cap guidelines, and with Thibs reportedly making a strong push for Rose, this is certainly a deal we could see go down on deadline day. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:29 am
  • Report: Teams re-engaging in talks for Noel
    Teams around the league have reportedly been re-engaging with the 76ers on a Nerlens Noel trade.

    Advice: Adrian Wojnarowski reports that if the 76ers are unable to find a trade partner for Jahlil Okafor they will shift their focus to sending away Noel, but the biggest stumbling block here for a Noel deal is that he's about to be a restricted free agent. Teams reportedly want to know what it will cost to retain Noel as a free agent, and with Woj reporting that Noel is seeking a "big number," that may be enough to scare some teams away who don't have the cap room to re-sign him this offseason. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:19 am
  • Report: BOS still interested in Jahlil Okafor
    The Celtics are reportedly still interested in Jahlil Okafor.

    Advice: The Celtics still view Jimmy Butler and Paul George as their primary targets for any deadline day deal, but if Boston can't pull off a major move, they may turn their eyes towards Okafor. David Aldridge boldly stated during an appearance on NBA TV on Tuesday night that Okafor "will get moved" by the deadline and that Philly has "a lot of offers" on the table. He's also been linked to the Pacers and Kings, and the Kings would be the best landing spot in terms of fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:54 am
  • Jazz interested in acquiring Deron Williams?
    According to ESPN, the Jazz are interested in trading for Deron Williams at the deadline.

    Advice: The Mavs aren't going anywhere and Williams is on an expiring contract, so his asking price should be relatively low. The Jazz haven't gotten much production out of Shelvin Mack or Dante Exum, and they have even tried Alec Burks as their backup PG for stretches. Williams would lose a lot of value in Utah and would surely come off the bench behind George Hill, so this potential move would be bad news for his fantasy owners. On the flip side, Yogi Ferrell would get a significant bump in Dallas. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:35 pm
  • ESPN: Wizards interested in Shabazz Muhammad
    According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Wizards have expressed interest in Shabazz Muhammad.

    Advice: The Wizards were in hot pursuit of Lou Williams, but he was just traded to the Rockets. The Wizards are looking to upgrade their bench at the deadline and Muhammad has been shopped by the Wolves in the past. The swingman would have a limited role off the bench behind Otto Porter if he was moved to Washington, so there's no stash appeal here. The 24-year-old wing is averaging 9.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 0.8 3-pointers in 19.6 minutes for the Wolves this season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:17 pm
  • Report: Teams inquiring about Caldwell-Pope
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope has reportedly received a lot of interest around the league.

    Advice: KCP is one of Stan Van Gundy's favorites, so it's unlikely that another team out there will be able to match the asking price. Reggie Jackson or Andre Drummond could be moved, though. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:56 pm
  • Report: BK has multiple offers for Bogdanovic
    Teams pursuing Bojan Bogdanovic have reportedly been ramping up their offers, and it's getting to the point where Brooklyn will be choosing the best deal available.

    Advice: Thus far we've only heard that the Wizards were interested in acquiring Bogdanovic, but Woj is reporting that multiple teams have been involved. It seems likely that Bogdanovic will be dealt at the deadline, and his value would likely take a bit of a hit playing outside of Brooklyn. A Bogdanovic departure could clear the way for Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to flirt with minutes in the 30s, so he's someone to consider stashing away in deep leagues ahead of the deadline. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:30 pm
  • Report: P.J. Tucker highly coveted around NBA
    The Suns have reportedly received inquiries regarding the availability of P.J. Tucker from the Raptors, Celtics, Wizards, Clippers, Hawks and Jazz.

    Advice: Tucker is very likely to be moved at the deadline, and in terms of fantasy value, Los Angeles and Atlanta look like the best potential destinations as he would assuredly lose value with any of the other aforementioned teams. T.J. Warren could see a nice boost in value if the Suns don't bring back another wing, so he's someone to consider stashing away ahead of the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:06 pm
  • ESPN: Pacers have interest in Jahlil Okafor
    Indiana is pursuing Jahlil Okafor prior to Thursday's trade deadline, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

    Advice: At this point, it seems as though more than half the league has been attached to a Jahlil Okafor rumor. Chris Hayes of ESPN had previously reported that the Pacers would be willing to trade their 2017 first-round pick in the right deal if it meant improving its roster, which would ultimately increase their chances of re-signing Paul George. However, a pick in the mid-teens seems like an awfully small return for the Sixers to accept for Okafor, who was selected with the third overall pick in the 2015 draft. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:58 am
  • Report: BOS may discuss Bogut trade w/ Dallas
    The Mavs and Celtics are expected to discuss a deal that would send Andrew Bogut to Boston in exchange for one of the Celtics first-round picks, according to Mike Fisher of Scout.com.

    Advice: This rumor has not been confirmed by any other national outlets, so it's unknown how accurate it is. The report states that such a trade is dependant on Boston first making another, larger move. The deal with Dallas would purportedly center around Bogut and his expiring contract in exchange for Tyler Zeller and one of Boston's less valuable future first-round picks. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:45 am
  • Report: Suns interested in Derrick Favors
    The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that the Suns have expressed interest in potentially trading for Derrick Favors.

    Advice: Favors has had a disappointing season due largely to a nagging knee injury he has been battling since training camp. He is averaging just 9.2 points (while shooting 46.9 percent from the floor and 63.5 percent from the free throw line) and 6.1 rebounds in the 40 games he has appeared in. Still, when healthy, he has shown star potential and he's locked into an affordable contract through 2018. According to the report, "Utah has been willing to listen" to offers for Favors. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:57 am
  • Report: Chris Paul to re-sign with Clippers
    Basketball Insiders is reporting that Chris Paul and the Clippers have already "verbally agreed" to signing a new, long-term contract this summer.

    Advice: CP3 has a player option of $24.3 million for the 2017-18 season. He is expected to opt out this summer and then sign a new, five-year deal worth north of $200 million. Paul turns 32 in May, so inking to him to a massive, long-term contract is somewhat risky, as he will be making over $30 million annually during his age-35 and age-36 seasons. However, he is still playing at a very high level and his game is not overly dependent on athleticism, so he will likely age better than other comparable point guards. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:24 am
  • Jazz exploring the market for Derrick Favors?
    Zach Lowe of ESPN said that the Jazz have explored the market for Derrick Favors over the last few weeks.

    Advice: Favors hasn't been the same since he suffered a knee injury during the preseason, but it sounds like the Jazz are just doing their due diligence. The Jazz are hoping to re-sign both George Hill and Gordon Hayward, so they are going to be financially strapped when Favors hits free agency during the summer of 2018. The Jazz don't want to weaken their team ahead of the playoffs, so if they do move Favors they probably wouldn't do it until the offseason. There's no reason to stash Trey Lyles outside of very deep leagues unless we get wind of something. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:18 pm
  • P.J. Tucker the 'most likely' to be moved?
    Zach Lowe of ESPN is reporting that P.J. Tucker is the "most likely" to be traded by the Suns at the deadline.

    Advice: Phoenix is taking calls on "most" of their veterans and that surely includes Tyson Chandler and Brandon Knight, but Tucker will likely draw the most interest because of his cheap expiring contract. Previous reports have indicated that the Suns are holding out for a first-round pick, but that seems a bit ambitious. The Raptors, Clippers and Celtics have all been linked to Tucker in recent days, but a trade would shatter his fantasy value and open the door for T.J. Warren to have a consistent role with minutes in the 30s. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:50 pm
  • Darren Collison and McLemore are available?
    According to Chris Mannix of The Vertical, Darren Collison, Ben McLemore and Arron Afflalo are all "available" with the deadline looming.

    Advice: The Kings moved on from DeMarcus Cousins on Sunday which signaled the beginning of a very long rebuild. Collison is set to become a free agent this summer and the Kings probably aren't confident about their ability to re-sign him, so moving him now for a draft pick makes sense before he walks for nothing. His owners will be hoping that he lands in a favorable spot, but a move would likely hurt his fantasy value. Ty Lawson is the big winner here if the Kings find a new home for Collison, unless of course the Kings bring in a young PG. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:40 am
  • Report: Celtics interested in P.J. Tucker
    The Celtics have reportedly expressed "deep interest" in P.J. Tucker.

    Advice: Tucker would add some solid depth to the Celtics, but his playing time would take a substantial hit in Boston, so Tucker owners should be hoping that he remains in Phoenix past the deadline. There have been more than a few trade rumors regarding Tucker, though, so him remaining with the Suns is far from a certainty. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:06 pm
  • Wizards interested in Bojan Bogdanovic?
    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the Wizards have some interest in Bojan Bogdanovic.

    Advice: The Wizards are looking to upgrade their bench at the deadline and have also been linked to Lou Williams. The Nets are looking for draft picks to speed up their rebuild, and the Wizards "have shown an inclination" to give up a future first-round pick for the right deal. Bogdanovic would surely lose value on a team like the Wizards, but his absence could open the door for Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Caris LeVert to have a larger role in Brooklyn's offense. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:00 am
  • ESPN: Pistons still shopping Reggie Jackson
    The Pistons have "continued to gauge the market" for Reggie Jackson, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein.

    Advice: In case you missed it on Friday, the Pistons have reportedly talked to the Magic about a Jackson for D.J. Augustin and Jeff Green deal. Plus, last month there was a Jackson for Ricky Rubio report, and also ESPN's Zach Lowe said the Pelicans had exploratory interest in Jackson. Ish Smith isn't the greatest stash in fantasy, but he has some appeal for owners needing a point guard. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:21 pm
  • Report: Blazers were very close on Okafor
    The 76ers pulled Jahlil Okafor from their lineup last week because a deal with Portland was close to happening, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

    Advice: The Blazers lost interest in this deal because they went with Denver's offer for Jusuf Nurkic and a first-round pick for Mason Plumlee. The Blazers were reportedly interested in Okafor before this, but it's interesting to hear that may have been the main reason why Okafor was out of the lineup. The second-year big man may be the most likely to be traded before Thursday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:37 pm
  • Joel Embiid wants 76ers to keep Jahlil Okafor
    Joel Embiid said he wants the Sixers to keep Jahlil Okafor, as opposed to trading him at the deadline.

    Advice: "We got a lot of talent, and I feel we can use everybody if we want to get to where we want to," said Embiid. "We have a lot of talent. Anytime you have that type of talent, you got to find ways to make it work." The Sixers have seemingly been on the brink of an Okafor deal for a week now, but Okafor is still a member of the 76ers. With five days remaining before the Feb. 23 deadline, plenty more rumors involving Okafor will inevitably surface. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:48 am
  • ESPN: Magic, Pistons talking Jackson deal
    The Pistons and Magic have discussed a trade that would send Reggie Jackson to Orlando for D.J. Augustin and Jeff Green, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: To be clear, nothing is imminent. We're going to see a lot of Jackson trade rumors as the deadline approaches next Thursday. He's been vastly outplayed by Ish Smith lately and the Pistons just don't have the ammo to compete in the Eastern Conference right now, so being sellers makes sense. There could be some sort of draft compensation for the Pistons, but Jackson being signed through the 2019-20 season is a big factor on potential move. It makes sense to stash Ish Smith in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:54 am
  • Andrew Bogut doesn't believe he'll be traded
    Andrew Bogut doesn't believe he will be moved prior to the NBA trade deadline.

    Advice: Bogut played 18 minutes on Wednesday, his first appearance in February. When asked afterward about a potential trade, Bogut replied: "That's not a question for me to answer. But I don't think anything's going to happen." Bogut has been unable to stay healthy this season and has very limited fantasy value, whether he stays in Dallas or is traded elsewhere. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:45 am
  • Nikola Mirotic was a DNP-CD
    Nikola Mirotic did not play against the Celtics on Thursday.

    Advice: After going through practice on Wednesday, he was expected to play in this game. It's possible something happened to him in warmups or coach Fred Hoiberg wanted to get a look at Bobby Portis. Regardless, Mirotic just doesn't have it this year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:47 pm
  • Doug McDermott scores 11 points
    Doug McDermott scored 11 points with two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.

    Advice: He did a fine job off the bench and it does help that Nikola Mirotic (back) did not play in this game. The Bulls really need another shooter out there, so Mirotic not playing makes McDermott even more essential for spacing when he's out there. He's still not an add here. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:45 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic (back) available to play
    Nikola Mirotic (back) is available to play against the Celtics on Thursday.

    Advice: He went through practice on Wednesday and should be good to go. With Mirotic back, that could bump Bobby Portis out of the rotation while guys up front lose minutes as well. There should still be a decent amount of shots for reserves like Doug McDermott because Dwyane Wade (illness) is out. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:29 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic (back) is expected to play
    Nikola Mirotic (back) is expected to play on Thursday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He's missed the last two games, but the Bulls probably want to prove that he's healthy because his name has been floated around in the rumor mill. Mirotic was averaging 8.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.4 triples in February prior to his injury, so he's not a great pickup at the moment. His return will likely eat into the workload of Doug McDermott and could push Bobby Portis out of the rotation. That's not a lock, though. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:24 am
  • Taj Gibson not concerned with trade rumors
    Taj Gibson said the trade rumors swirling around him aren't a concern.

    Advice: "Of course it's gonna get hotter," Gibson said about the trade talk. "No matter what happens, you're still in the NBA. You're still getting paid a lot of money to play basketball. People don't understand that. They think it's bad half the time. No it's not. It's the same paycheck, just on a different team." Gibson is playing on an expiring contract and many expect the Bulls to shake things up at the deadline. Gibson was linked to the Raptors before they acquired Serge Ibaka, but any contenders in need of a PF will likely entertain the idea of adding Gibson if the price is right. To be clear, a trade could hurt his fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:27 am
  • P.J. Tucker plays through tweaked back
    P.J. Tucker played through a back issue on Wednesday vs. the Lakers, finishing with nine points on 3-of-6 shooting with three boards and one triple in 21 minutes.

    Advice: He briefly went to the locker room after falling into the camera area, but the fact that he returned to a game that the Suns won by 36 points is a great sign. He also gets a full week of rest during the All-Star break. Tucker is going to draw some interest at the deadline, but his owners won't miss him too much if he's dealt to a contender. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:52 pm
  • Ricky Rubio held to six points
    Ricky Rubio was held to six points on 1-of-5 shooting vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday, adding five assists, three boards, three steals and four turnovers.

    Advice: Rubio is now 0-of-6 from deep in his last two games, but he was shooting 42 percent in the 12 games prior to Feb. 14 and coach Tom Thibodeau is encouraging him to keep firing away. "He’s regained confidence and he’s put a lot of work into it," Thibodeau said of Rubio's 3-point shot. "He shoots a lot, he’s comfortable, he’s found a good rhythm, and I think the way teams are playing us right now, it’s the right play." Rubio's value has been on the rise since the new year, but his owners will have to wait anxiously to see what the Wolves do with him at the trade deadline on Feb. 23. For now, expect his value to be safe. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:02 pm
  • Will Barton scores 18 points w/ nine boards
    Will Barton shifted to the bench on Wednesday and notched 18 points with nine rebounds, two assists and one block, making 7-of-15 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Mason Plumlee started tonight and coach Mike Malone shifted Barton to the bench to give the second unit some scoring punch. It's a role he seems to prefer for Barton, who continues to put up solid value no matter where he begins the game. His role could change if Denver makes more trades during the break, but either way he's worth holding rest-of-season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:46 pm
  • Kentavious Caldwell-Pope bounces back
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope bounced back on Wednesday vs. Dallas, scoring 16 points on 7-of-15 shooting.

    Advice: This was a welcome sight for KCP's owners after he was limited to seven points on 2-of-10 shooting vs. the Bucks on Monday. He added five rebounds, one assist and two triples in tonight's win, and his outlook is safe as we approach the Feb. 23 deadline -- KCP isn't going anywhere and he's eyeing a massive contract extension with Detroit this summer. Keep rolling him out there for his triples and steals. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:12 pm
  • Reggie Jackson breaks out of slump w/ 22 pts
    Reggie Jackson finally broke out of his slump in Wednesday's 98-91 win over the Mavericks, scoring 22 points on 8-of-12 shooting.

    Advice: R-Jax was averaging 10.4 points on 37.3 percent shooting in his previous 10 outings, so it has to be a huge relief for his owners that he finally showed some signs of life before the break. He dished out four assists with a pair of steals and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes, but Ish Smith also played well with 10 points and three assists in 20 minutes. In case you missed it, a report by Zach Lowe of ESPN indicated that R-Jax is a candidate to be moved at the deadline, but a trade may not be a bad thing with Smith breathing down his neck in Detroit. Jackson has been a bust this season, but he's still a hold in most leagues and tonight was encouraging. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:01 pm
  • P.J. Tucker (back) returns to the game
    P.J. Tucker returned to the game in the third quarter on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Suns have this game in the bag, so Tucker returning with a 20-plus scoring lead is a great sign. He's fine. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:44 pm
  • Ersan Ilyasova marginalized w/ Saric hot
    Ersan Ilyasova struggled in 15 minutes vs. Boston on Wednesday, making 2-of-9 shots to finish with five points, three rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: Ilyasova didn't return after leaving at the 9:41 mark of the third quarter tonight, as Dario Saric went off and kept the veteran rooted to the bench. His minutes are trending down, even as Saric trends up, and this does not bode well for his role in the final weeks of the season. Feel free to look elsewhere for players with greater upside. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:39 pm
  • Nerlens Noel productive again in tough loss
    Nerlens Noel had another productive game vs. Boston on Wednesday with 16 points, seven rebounds, three assists and three steals.

    Advice: Noel made 7-of-10 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs in 31 minutes and he's been terrific as a starter lately -- his play had helped Philly earn a three-game win streak that was snapped tonight. With Jahlil Okafor on the trade block, Joel Embiid recovering from a "very minor" tear in his meniscus, Noel's post-break outlook is as bright as it's been all season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:38 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor back in action, plays 17 mins
    Jahlil Okafor returned to action on Wednesday, posting four points, four rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 17 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Okafor had been a DNP-CD recently, due to swirling trade rumors, but Philly surprisingly did an about-face and activated him tonight. He had a few defensive lapses and didn't do much to increase his trade appeal, but he's still a prime suspect to be playing elsewhere after the break. He's just a stash in the hopes that he lands in an ideal spot. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:36 pm
  • Deron Williams scores 12 points
    Deron Williams scored 12 points on 4-of-14 shooting vs. the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Advice: This was his first time eclipsing the 30-minute mark since Jan. 20, so it's a safe bet that he's over both his toe issue and illness. He really struggled tonight against a Detroit team that has been torched by opposing point guards all season, but he did salvage his poor shooting line by adding six assists, two rebounds, one steal and two triples. D-Will should be owned, but his owners will be hoping that he doesn't join a contender at the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:24 pm
  • Andrew Bogut plays 18 minutes in return
    Andrew Bogut (hamstring) returned to action on Wednesday vs. the Pistons, scoring four points on 2-of-4 shooting with eight rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Jan. 30 and wasn't even expected to give it a go tonight, but the Mavs probably wanted to prove that he was healthy with the trade deadline looming -- Bogut's name has been in the rumor mill all season and his expiring contract makes him an obvious trade chip. Bogut is a nice per-minute guy, but the problem is that he can't really handle significant workloads at this point in his career. He would likely join a contender if he was moved, so there's not much stash appeal here. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:20 pm
  • P.J. Tucker (back) questionable to return
    P.J. Tucker (back) suffered a lower back contusion on Wednesday and is questionable to return.

    Advice: He fell into the camera area and limped to the locker room. Tucker was up-ended by the cameraman and landed on the area near his hip. If he can't return, we'll see more Marquese Chriss and T.J. Warren. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:17 pm
  • Will Barton back on Nuggets' bench Wednesday
    Will Barton will return to Denver's bench on Wednesday vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Mason Plumlee is getting a surprise start tonight, but we've seen Barton play well enough as a reserve that it's not a big deal. Denver is so short-handed that they'll still need him to log heavy minutes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:34 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic (back) practices on Wednesday
    Nikola Mirotic (back) went through practice on Wednesday and will be questionable for Thursday against the Celtics.

    Advice: That's a good sign for Mirotic after missing the last two games. Bobby Portis has filled in as the backup power forward while the Bulls have also gone smaller more often. If he can return, that may bump Portis and take shots away from Doug McDermott, who scored 20 points on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:28 am
  • Andrew Bogut (hamstring) will play Wednesday
    Updating a previous report, Andrew Bogut (hamstring) will play Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Bogut was originally ruled out for Wednesday's game, but after going through shootaround the Mavs decided to let him take the court for Dallas' final game prior to the break. He's been on the sidelines since Jan. 30, so he may not be working with a full complement of minutes tonight. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:28 am
  • Jahlil Okafor will be available to play Weds
    Jahlil Okafor was a full participant during shootaround and he'll be available to play Wednesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Okafor will come off the bench behind Nerlens Noel tonight, so he's not a great option in most leagues with 14 games on the slate. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:17 am
  • Report: Detroit shopping Reggie Jackson
    The Pistons are open to moving Reggie Jackson at the deadline, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN.

    Advice: Lowe states that while the Pistons are unlikely to part ways with Andre Drummond, sending away Jackson isn't entirely out of the question. Thus far, Jackson has been linked to New Orleans, Orlando and Minnesota, and out of all those potential destinations, Orlando would probably be the best landing spot as Jackson would easily be the No. 1 option on offense there. If he does end up getting traded and Detroit doesn't bring back a guard, Ish Smith would likely emerge as Detroit's starting point guard, so he's someone to consider stashing away in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:16 am
  • Jahlil Okafor expected to play on Wednesday
    Jahlil Okafor is expected to come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

    Advice: Okafor missed the 76ers initial flight to Boston, but he's now rejoined the team and is expected to be in the rotation tonight. As a reserve, Okafor tends to only see around 20 minutes a night, so he's not a great option in most settings. Nerlens Noel will get the start. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:21 am
  • Darren Colllison scores 13 in win over Lakers
    Darren Collison hit 5-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, five rebounds, eight assists and five turnovers in Tuesday's 97-96 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: He played 40 minutes, but Boogie Cousins was amped for this game and shot it about every time he touched it, limiting Collison's shots in the process. Ty Lawson was out with his adductor strain and any time he's in street clothes, Collison is a viable fantasy play. He just didn't have a big game tonight. If Lawson plays on Wednesday, fading Collison is probably the way to go. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:37 pm
  • Doug McDermott scores 20 w/ two triples
    Doug McDermott moved back to the bench on Tuesday vs. the Raptors, but still had a great game with 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting.

    Advice: Jimmy Butler (heel) returned, but Doug McBuckets was still heavily involved because Nikola Mirotic (back) and Dwyane Wade (wrist) were both out. McDermott logged 32 minutes and added five rebounds, one assist and two triples, and he also closed this game out. The Bulls are one of two teams that do not play on Wednesday, but that makes him an enticing pickup for Thursday's two-game slate. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor joins the 76ers in Boston
    Jahlil Okafor joined up with the 76ers in Boston in advance of Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: This doesn't mean he will play by any means, as the 76ers don't want to risk an injury while they continue to shop him. For what it's worth, coach Brett Brown said the team will welcome him back with open arms if they don't find a new home for him. He belongs on the wire unless you have the roster spot to stash him with the Feb. 23 deadline looming. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:59 pm
  • Ricky Rubio hands out 16 assists in loss
    Ricky Rubio hit just 2-of-8 shots for five points, but also had eight rebounds, 16 assists and two steals in Tuesday's loss to the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Rubio got off to a very slow start this season but has been rolling. He double-doubled in three of his previous four games coming into this one and has hit double digits in assist in 12 of his last 18 games. He's also scored in double digits in six of his eight February games, so congratulations if you hung onto him through the early dark period of his season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:41 pm
  • Andrew Bogut (hamstring) out Wednesday
    Andrew Bogut (strained right hamstring) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: He previously said he was going to play, while coach Rick Carlisle initially gave him a 25 percent chance of suiting up. His next chance to play will be on Feb. 24 against the Wolves, assuming the Mavs don't deal him before the Feb. 23 trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:11 pm
  • Doug McDermott will come off the bench Tues
    Doug McDemott will return to the bench for Tuesday's game against Toronto.

    Advice: Jimmy Butler (heel) is back in the starting five, and he'll be joined by Jerian Grant, Michael Carter-Williams, Taj Gibson and Robin Lopez. McDermott is nothing more than a low-end 3-point specialist in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:29 pm
  • Trey Burke (elbow) doesn't practice Tuesday
    Trey Burke (elbow) did not practice on Tuesday but is expected to play Thursday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Minimal fantasy impact here, as Burke is averaging just 4.5 points and 2.6 assists in 12.8 minutes since the start of January. Burke would need an injury to John Wall to have a crack at fantasy relevance. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:39 am
  • Nikola Mirotic (back) ruled out Tuesday
    Nikola Mirotic (back) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. Toronto and is considered doubtful for Thursday's game vs. Boston.

    Advice: Mirotic is deal with painful back spasms and it appears the Bulls will hold him out through the All-Stat break to give him an extra week of rest. With Paul Zipser (ankle) also out, Bobby Portis, Doug McDermott and Cristiano Felicio will all likely see additional minutes again on Tuesday. They each played over 24 minutes Sunday vs. the Wolves. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:15 am
  • P.J. Tucker grabs 16 rebounds in loss
    P.J. Tucker scored 11 points and grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds in Monday's loss to the Pelicans.

    Advice: He logged 33 minutes and continues to be a workhorse for coach Earl Watson off the bench. He shot 5-of-11 from the field and added one assist, one steal and one triple, but he's cooled off lately and is averaging 6.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.6 triples over his last five games. He's worth owning if you need steals, but a trade is a strong possibility and that could crush his value. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:00 pm
  • Brandon Knight scores 11 points
    Brandon Knight returned to the bench on Monday vs. the Pelicans and scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting in 18 minutes.

    Advice: Eric Bledsoe returned from a rest day and scored 37 points, but Knight was likely in the rotation ahead of Tyler Ulis because the Suns might be showcasing him for a potential trade. He added two rebounds, two assists and one triple in the loss, but he's not really worth stashing in most leagues unless we get wind of something. He flopped in a start on Saturday vs. the Rockets with three points on 1-of-8 shooting, so moving his contract won't be easy. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:41 pm
  • Will Barton scores 24 w/ 10 rebounds
    Will Barton moved into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Warriors and was phenomenal, scoring 24 points with 10 rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four triples in 41 minutes.

    Advice: The Nuggets were down to nine active bodies with Wilson Chandler (illness), Mason Plumlee (trade), Emmanuel Mudiay (back), Danilo Gallinari (groin), Kenneth Faried (ankle) and Darrell Arthur (knee) all out, so Barton took full advantage of his opportunity. He shot 9-of-19 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line with three turnovers, and he was basically a must-play option in all formats tonight. He should have another strong game on Wednesday vs. the Wolves even if the Nuggets get a few bodies back, so roll him out there with confidence. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:19 pm
  • Derrick Favors scores 13 points
    Derrick Favors scored 13 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 24 minutes vs. the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: You could argue that Favors was Utah's best player tonight, as Gordon Hayward and George Hill combined to score 13 points and Rudy Gobert was outplayed by DeAndre Jordan. Favors hit 5-of-11 shots from the field and 3-of-6 from the line, a welcome sight for his owners after he was held to six points in each of his last two games. He's been a bust and probably isn't close to 100 percent after battling a knee issue since the preseason, but he's worth holding onto. Maybe he will get it going after the break. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:14 pm
  • Andrew Bogut (hamstring) targeting Wed return
    Andrew Bogut (strained right hamstring) said that he expects to return vs. the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Advice: "I’d like to do something before the All-Star break," Bogut said. The veteran's desire to take the court might not correspond to the training staff's wishes, however, especially since we're so close to the lengthy All-Star break. Mavs coach Rick Carlisle gave him a 25 percent chance of playing Wednesday, for what it's worth. Even if he does return, he'd assuredly play just a handful of minutes to scrape off some rust. Check for updates after Tuesday's practice. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:07 pm
  • Kentavious Caldewll-Pope hits 2-of-10 shots
    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope hit just 2-of-10 shots for seven points, three rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes of Monday's 102-89 loss to the Bucks.

    Advice: KCP went off for 38 points on 12-of-18 shooting on Feb. 1, but it's been a bit of a struggle ever since. He's scored in single digits in four of his last eight games and has hit just 24-of-78 shots over his last seven games. That's 31 percent shooting for those of you scoring at home, and while KCP's still worth owning, he's clearly struggling with his shot right now, despite getting 34 minutes a night. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:53 pm
  • Reggie Jackson scores nine points in loss
    Reggie Jackson hit 3-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, two rebounds, nine assists and a steal in 31 minutes of Monday's loss to the Bucks.

    Advice: Jackson has been struggling, to put it mildly, scoring nine or fewer points in three of his last four games. His shot isn't falling and he's averaging just 9.0 points, 1.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 3-pointers on 36 percent shooting in his last five games. He's due to break out of his funk soon, but for now, Jackson is a tough guy to start in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:49 pm
  • Wayne Ellington quiet in 21 bench minutes
    Wayne Ellington moved back to Miami's bench on Monday, picking up six points with two 3-pointers and no other statistics in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Ellington was solid in three starts sans Dion Waiters (ankle) but his appeal is greatly diminished in a reserve role. Josh Richardson (foot) is also "fairly close" to a return, and should at worst be ready after the break, so there isn't much incentive to own Ellington in typical leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:16 pm
  • Noel racks up three steals, two blocks
    Nerlens Noel scored 12 points with seven rebounds, one assist, three steals and two blocks in 28 minutes vs. the Hornets on Monday.

    Advice: With Jahlil Okafor expected to be traded shortly and Joel Embiid nursing a slight meniscus tear, Noel's value has never been higher this season. He finished 5-of-6 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line, and he eclipsed the 28-minute mark for just the fourth time this season. He's trending up in a hurry and has elite upside in steals and blocks. Noel said he's not worried about a potential trade, but it's looking less and less likely that the 76ers will move him anyways. "I just play my game," Noel said. "If that's what they decide, that's what they decide." Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:08 pm
  • Deron Williams ejected from Monday's game
    Deron Williams (illness) was ejected from Monday's game vs. the Celtics after picking up two technical fouls.

    Advice: He played 13 minutes and was ejected right before halftime, but there was a chance he wasn't going to play in the second half anyways because of his illness and toe injury. Yogi Ferrell will pick up the slack the rest of the night. D-Will finished with two points, one rebound, one assist and one steal. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:42 pm
  • Will Barton starting on Monday
    Will Barton is starting on Monday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: He's going to see all the minutes he can handle, as the Nuggets only have nine players available tonight. Barton is a must-start option in all leagues and should be picked up everywhere. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:41 pm
  • Deron Williams (illness) will start Monday
    Deron Williams (illness) is starting vs. the Celtics on Monday.

    Advice: He's still under the weather and there's a strong possibility that the Mavs will monitor his minutes once again tonight -- he played just 16 minutes vs. the Magic on Saturday and didn't see the floor in the second half. We'll let you know how he fares after the game. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:15 pm
  • Deron Williams (illness) a game-time decision
    Deron Williams (illness) will be a game-time decision for Monday's matchup with Boston.

    Advice: Williams wasn't able to go through shootaround, but Rick Carlisle is hopeful that Williams will be able to play on Monday. We likely won't get our next update until just prior to tip-off, but if Williams can't give it a go, Yogi Ferrell would more than likely slide back into the starting five and he'd be someone to consider throwing out there as a DFS punt play. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:08 pm
  • Wayne Ellington will return to bench
    Wayne Ellington will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Advice: This was the expected move with Dion Waiters (ankle) returning from a three-game absence. Waiters was on fire before the injury, so it's time to let go of Ellington if you picked him up for his 3-point shooting. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:56 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic (back) doesn't practice Monday
    Nikola Mirotic (back) did not practice on Monday.

    Advice: Mirotic did not play on Sunday, and the fact that he's still not feeling good enough to practice isn't a great sign regarding his chances of suiting up for Tuesday's game against the Raptors. Owners can expect to get another update following Tuesday morning's shootaorund, but if he's out, Bobby Portis, Doug McDermott and Cristiano Felicio would all split his minutes. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:37 am
  • Deron Williams (illness) questionable Monday
    Deron Williams (illness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He did not go through the morning shootaround which means he will be re-evaluated at the arena a couple hours before tip-off. Williams was likely going to have minute restrictions again anyways because of his toe, so his owners should have a backup plan ready for tonight. Expect a monster workload from Yogi Ferrell if D-Will is out. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:44 am
  • Andrew Bogut (hamstring) out Monday
    Andrew Bogut (hamstring) will not play vs. the Celtics on Monday.

    Advice: He has a 25 percent chance of playing on Wednesday vs. the Pistons according to coach Rick Carlisle, but the Mavs are likely going to hold him out through the All-Star break. Bogut is not worth stashing and will have a limited role upon his return. Salah Mejri and Dwight Powell each get a slight boost with Bogut out. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 6:59 am
