  • Raul Neto scores season-high 10 points
    Raul Neto scored a season-high 10 points in 14 minutes on Wednesday, going 4-of-4 from the field with two 3-pointers and one assist.

    Advice: Dante Exum has been unimpressive lately, so coach Quin Snyder rolled with Neto as his primary backup PG tonight. The veteran made the most of the opportunity, knocking down some easy looks from the corner for his first double-digit scoring performance since Mar. 17 last season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:02 pm
  • Boris Diaw starts, but plays just 14 minutes
    Boris Diaw drew the start on Wednesday in place of Joe Johnson, but finished with just five points, one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Diaw played 14 minutes and this is a predictably quiet return -- he's averaging 15.5 minutes off the bench this season, and that only goes up to 21.2 minutes as a starter. There's no reason to touch him in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:01 pm
  • Gordon Hayward shoots 6-of-17 from the field
    Gordon Hayward couldn't find the range on Wednesday, making 6-of-17 FGs and 6-of-9 FTs to finish with 19 points, eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: In Utah's previous three games, Hayward was tasked with defending LeBron James, Jimmy Butler and Paul George, so he may have just run out of energy tonight. The Jazz don't play again until Saturday, which is bad if you're relying on him for immediate value, but at least it'll give him a chance to recharge his batteries. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:00 pm
  • Rudy Gobert scores 35 pts, makes 13-of-14 FGs
    Rudy Gobert erupted for a career-high 35 points vs. the Knicks on Wednesday, making 13-of-14 FGs and 9-of-12 FTs with 13 rebounds, four blocks, one assist and one steal in 38 minutes.

    Advice: New York started small with Kristaps Porzingis at center and they never found an answer for Gobert in the paint -- all 14 of his shots came within the restricted area. Rudy is the seventh player since 1987 to have scored 35+ points while shooting at least 90 percent, joining the company of Alonzo Mourning, Scottie Pippen, Cedric Ceballos, Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller and Dwight Howard. As a reminder, he's still just 24 years old. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:59 pm
  • Willy Hernangomez logs 17 minutes off bench
    Willy Hernangomez came off the bench vs. Utah on Wednesday, playing 17 minutes to finish with nine points on 4-of-7 shooting, 10 rebounds, two steals and one assist.

    Advice: Kristaps Porzingis started at center in a frontcourt that also featured Carmelo Anthony and Lance Thomas, which bumped Willy to a reserve role. His inconsistent minutes have been frustrating at the most important time on the fantasy calendar, but his upside is undeniable. He's worth holding in most leagues, unless there's a very compelling free agent available. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:54 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 32 points in win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points in a 116-98 win at Sacramento on Wednesday, adding 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

    Advice: It's just the second time this month he's hit the 30-point mark, and Antetokounmpo scored at least 20 points in just two of his previous six games. The Bucks finally had their six-game road trip end and they'll be heading back home this weekend. Antetokounmpo is much better at home with a 54.0 field goal percentage with better averages in points, boards, steals, blocks and threes at home compared to being on the road. After a down couple weeks, Giannis should go back to being a top-three guy going forward. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:24 pm
  • Thon Maker scores four points
    Thon Maker scored four points with three rebounds in 12 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Even with John Henson (thumb) not playing, Maker still couldn't get additional playing time. He's not going to play enough to have value in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:16 pm
  • Skal Labissiere scores eight points
    Skal Labissiere scored eight points in the starting lineup against the Bucks on Wednesday, adding eight rebounds, one assist and two steals in 31 minutes during a 116-98 loss.

    Advice: With Kosta Koufos resting, Labissiere was able to make his third NBA start. In his previous two, he only averaged 10.5 points, 6.0 boards, 2.5 blocks and 0.5 steals in just 17.5 minutes. He is clearly earning more run and the Kings will continue to rest players to allow Skal to play more. He's worth a long look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • John Henson (thumb) to be re-evaluated on Wed
    John Henson (left thumb sprain) will be re-evaluated when the Bucks return to Milwaukee.

    Advice: Henson got hurt in Portland and he sat out Wednesday's game. Owners should consider him questionable to play vs. the visiting Hawks on Friday -- if he can't suit up, Spencer Hawes looks like the biggest winner after scoring 10 points in 18 minutes on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Garrett Temple comes off the bench
    Garrett Temple scored 12 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's tough to count on any Kings vet right now with how the front office finally is getting to play the youth. Temple can remain on the wire in just about all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:03 pm
  • Tyreke Evans scores 18 points
    Tyreke Evans scored 18 points with three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He did not play in the previous two games and will continue to be rested going forward. Evans will be a free agent this summer and it'll be interesting to see who pays up for him with all of his injury history. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:00 pm
  • Papa G blocks a couple shots
    Georgios Papagiannis made 2-of-9 from the field for four points with seven rebounds and two blocks in 23 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: With Kosta Koufos getting the night off, the Kings gave their rookie plenty of run during this game. Papagiannis still isn't very effective on the offensive end, but he is improving and does have some upside for blocks and boards. He's worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:57 pm
  • Buddy Hield scores 21 points vs. Bucks
    Buddy Hield scored 21 points with four rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's his best scoring game as a King. Hield has seen his shot total rise with at least 12 in each of his last three games as coach Dave Joerger gives his rookie more responsibility. Hield also has a steal in three straight and only 1.0 turnovers in that span, as well. His fantasy value isn't all that great because he doesn't do too much outside of scoring, but feel free to give him a look if you need some points and treys. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Jamal Murray thrives in 20 minutes vs. Cavs
    Jamal Murray thrived in 20 minutes vs. the Cavs, coming off the bench with 15 points (5-of-11 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), three 3-pointers, three assists and zero turnovers.

    Advice: Starting PG Jameer Nelson had three points and nine dimes in 28 minutes, as the two continue to share the position. Mike Malone likes to play the rookie alongside Will Barton (20 points in 33 minutes), to take pressure off him as a ball-handler, and the tandem displayed terrific chemistry tonight. Murray is trending up and he makes sense as a cheap pickup for 3-pointers, steals and a trickle of other stats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Juan Hernangomez quiet off bench Wednesday
    Juan Hernangomez moved to the bench vs. the Cavaliers, finishing Wednesday's home win with four points, four rebounds, one assist and one block in 12 minutes.

    Advice: Wilson Chandler (groin) was back in action tonight, which bumped Denver's promising young forward to the second unit. In eight starts this year he's averaging 11.6 points, 1.8 threes, 6.0 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.5 blocks, but his numbers take a big hit coming off the bench. If you're holding him, just remember that his role will be threatened even more once Danilo Gallinari (knee) gets back on the court. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Garrett Temple to bench on Wednesday
    Garrett Temple will come off the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: Arron Afflalo is getting the start tonight, and this effectively erases Temple's faint fantasy appeal. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:31 pm
  • Collison, Hield, Afflalo, Skal & WCS starting
    Darren Collison, Buddy Hield, Arron Afflalo, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein are starting against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Kings are resting Kosta Koufos, so Skal should be getting some good minutes in the first unit. The Kings should also roll with Georgios Papagiannis off the bench. Skal is worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:30 pm
  • Willy Hernangomez to come off bench Wednesday
    Willy Hernangomez is listed as a reserve for Wednesday's game, with Lance Thomas starting alongside Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis.

    Advice: The Knicks are mixing things up against Utah's imposing defense, with Porzingis lining up across from Rudy Gobert. Hernangomez hasn't been great as a starter in his past few games, so hopefully the benching will fire him up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:19 pm
  • Boris Diaw starting; Joe Johnson to bench
    Boris Diaw will start at power forward and Joe Johnson will move to the bench.

    Advice: The Jazz will go with their bigger lineup with Kristaps Porzingis starting for the Knicks. Diaw is likely just going to play minutes in the teens, so he's not someone fantasy owners should be counting on tonight. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:03 pm
  • John Henson (thumb) ruled out Wednesday
    John Henson (left thumb sprain) will not play vs. the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Greg Monroe stands to gain some minutes in Henson's absence, with Thon Maker and Mirza Teletovic also in the equation. It's possible that we'll even see Spencer Hawes or Terrence Jones crack the rotation. Henson is day-to-day so this doesn't have significant long-term implications. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:13 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play vs. Milwaukee
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play vs. the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Evans went scoreless in 14 minutes his last time out, and even if his ankle has fully recovered he's a dubious fantasy option at this stage of the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:13 pm
  • Juan Hernangomez will come off the bench
    Juan Hernangomez will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    Advice: Wilson Chandler (groin) will be getting the start at the three-spot tonight to matchup with LeBron James, and with Darrell Arthur (knee) also set to return to action, Hernangomez' minutes could take a decent sized hit. He's not the best option tonight with a tough matchup and a return to the second unit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:44 pm
  • John Henson (thumb) questionable Wednesday
    John Henson (left thumb sprain) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Henson appeared to injure his left thumb on Tuesday night when Damian Lillard crossed him up, causing Henson to fall to the floor. If Henson is unable to play on Wednesday, Greg Monroe would soak up most of his minutes. Thon Maker would likely see an uptick in playing time as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:59 am
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 22 in big win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 8-of-21 shots for 22 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks in 36 minutes of Tuesday's 93-90 win over the Blazers.

    Advice: Giannis tweaked an ankle on Saturday, but was never really in jeopardy of missing this game. This was a huge win for the Bucks, who now sit just 1/2 game in front of the No. 8 seeded Heat. This is good news for his owners, as the Bucks are going to need everything he has to offer in order to ensure the Bucks make the playoffs. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:05 pm
  • Antetokounmpo (ankle) starting vs. Blazers
    Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is starting vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

    Advice: He tweaked his right ankle while blocking Draymond Green's shot on Saturday, but wasn't listed on the injury report and should be fine. We'll let you know how he fares after the game. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:00 pm
  • Giannis tweaks ankle in Saturday's loss
    Giannis Antetokounmpo tweaked his right ankle while blocking Draymond Green's shot on Saturday and immediately left the game.

    Advice: He scored just nine points in the blowout loss and played 31 minutes, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious. We expect him to play on Tuesday night, but owners of the Greek Freak should watch for injury updates prior to game time in order to be certain he's playing tonight. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:08 am
  • Jamal Murray tries to protect his job
    Jamal Murray hit five of his eight field goal attempts to finish with 13 points and four rebounds over 23 minutes in Monday's 125-124 loss at Houston.

    Advice: Murray continues to hold down the backup point guard job between veteran Jameer Nelson, and he is trying to hold off Emmanuel Mudiay. He did nothing to hurt his standing in Monday's game, as the rookie out of Kentucky continues to play well. He remains a nice depth option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams and in long-term keeper formats. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:19 pm
  • Rudy Gobert swats eight shots vs. Indiana
    Rudy Gobert scored 16 points with 14 rebounds, three assists and a career-high eight blocked shots in Monday's 107-100 loss at Indiana.

    Advice: Gobert now has 13 blocked shots over his past two outings and a total of 19 over the past four games, much higher than his already impressive average of 2.5 swats per outing. He is averaging 16.3 points, 15.3 rebounds and 5.0 blocked shots over the past three games to really endear himself to his fantasy owners down the stretch. The only thing rotisserie owners can carp about is his dismal 5-of-13 mark at the charity stripe over the past three outings. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:47 pm
  • Gordon Hayward scores career-high 38 at IND
    Gordon Hayward scored a career-high 38 points with three rebounds, two assists, two steals, a blocked shot and three 3-pointers in Monday's 107-100 loss at Indiana.

    Advice: It was likely extra special for Hayward since he spent his college days in Indy playing for the Butler Bulldogs. He was on point, connecting on 16 of his 24 field goal attempts. He now has at least one 3-pointer in all 11 games in March, and 22 straight outings dating back to Jan. 28. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:31 pm
  • Skal Labissiere hot from the floor
    Skal Labissiere ended up with 14 points and seven rebounds in Sunday's 118-102 loss against the Spurs.

    Advice: The rookie connected on seven of his nine field goal attempts and is now hitting 63.3 percent from the field (50-of-79) in 10 games in the month of March. Labissiere is logging plenty of time since the trade of fellow Kentucky alum DeMarcus Cousin to New Orleans and it's now his time to shine. He and another Wildcat, Willie Cauley-Stein, are the future in Sacramento in the middle. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:56 pm
  • Garrett Temple hot from the perimeter
    Garrett Temple scored 15 points while hitting all three of his attempts from behind the arc in Sunday's 118-102 loss in San Antonio.

    Advice: Temple matched his best shooting night since returning from a long-term hamstring injury, and this was just the second time he played in a back-to-back situation since coming back March 5. The last time he struggled in both ends of the back-to-back, but he obviously excelled this time around. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:17 pm
  • Georgios Papagiannis grabs 10 more boards
    Georgios Papagiannis scored six points with 10 rebounds, a steal and a blocked shots in 24 minutes against the Kings on Sunday.

    Advice: Head coach Dave Joerger has decided the remove the bubble wrap from the rookie and see what the Greek-born 7-footer can do. Papagiannis is averaging 10.0 points and 10.5 rebounds per game over his past two outings. If he continues to see 15-20 minutes per game, which is a good bet down the stretch, Papagiannis could be quite the addition for fantasy owners in deeper leagues in search of an effective big man, especially in rotisserie formats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:01 pm
  • Buddy Hield (finger) posts 18/5/5 in defeat
    Buddy Hield knocked down 8-of-14 shots with a pair of 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing with 18 points, five rebounds, five assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: This was one of Hield's best performances of the season, with the assists tying his career-high, but it wasn't enough to get a road win vs. the Spurs. He injured his right index finger during the game, ripping half of his nail, but didn't leave after getting it bandaged up. We'll let you know if it's serious enough to jeopardize his status for Tuesday's game. For now we're assuming he's fine and leaving him off the injury report. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:00 pm
  • Tyreke Evans, Afflalo, McLemore out Sunday
    Tyreke Evans (ankle), Arron Afflalo (personal) and Ben McLemore (personal) will all sit out vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: Malachi Richardson (hamstring) is also out tonight, so once again it will be all hands on deck for the Kings. Darren Collison, Ty Lawson and Buddy Hield should do the heavy lifting, with some help from Langston Galloway and Garrett Temple. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:27 pm
  • Giannis Anteotokounmpo gets held to 9 points
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored nine points during a blowout 117-92 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding three rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals in 31 minutes.

    Advice: The Warriors know how to defend drivers as well as just about anyone and Antetokounmpo got a little too much Draymond Green today. He came into this game with a 53.9 field goal percentage in March and he continues to flirt with his two steals and two blocks per game. His fantasy owners will have a big advantage next week with the Bucks suiting up for four games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:42 pm
  • Jamal Murray scores 12 points vs. Rockets
    Jamal Murray scored 12 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: He had three really bad fouls early in this game and never really got it going. Coach Mike Malone has said he wants to give Murray to help develop him faster while also trusting him in clutch spots. That was the case in this game for Murray with plenty of important shots, but he did not come through -- he missed two big free throws late. Murray's usage and minutes are rising, so that makes him a pickup in competitive leagues while Danilo Gallinari (knee) is out. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:51 pm
  • Juancho has a solid game in start
    Juancho Hernangomez scored 15 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes as the starting small forward against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Nuggets look like they hit on another international guy. Hernangomez has made a very impressive 45.9 percent from deep this season. Before tonight, a whopping 71 of his 73 attempts were catch-and-shoot attempts, so having Nikola Jokic is helping. With Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari out, Hernangomez is a decent guy to hold until those two get the all clear. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:38 pm
  • Rudy Gobert drops 13 and 13 with 5 blocks
    Rudy Gobert blocked five shots in a 95-86 loss to the Bulls on Saturday, adding 13 points, 13 rebounds and two assists in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Since missing a game due to a bruised leg, Gobert has been hot with averages of 14.0 points, 12.8 boards and 3.0 blocks. The bad news is he's made just 46.2 percent from the line, though. Gobert not having Derrick Favors (knee) around has been helpful for his stats because he is 5.4 TS% better without him, has a better rebounding rate and a higher usage rate. Gobert should be a monster the rest of the way as the Jazz play for seeding. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:53 pm
  • Gordon Hayward scores just nine
    Gordon Hayward made 5-of-16 from the field for 14 points with six rebounds, two assists, four steals and three 3-pointers against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: He's surprisingly failed to hit 15 points in three of his last five games while his averages in boards, assists, field goal percentage and free throw percentage are down in that span. All three of those bad games were on the road, and that has been a trend for Hayward with his field goal percentage four percentage points worse away from Utah. Two of his three games next week are on the road, but one of those is in Indiana for the Butler product. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:39 pm
  • Skal Labissiere scores 13 points
    Skal Labissiere scores 13 points during a 110-94 loss to the Thunder on Saturday, adding four rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes.

    Advice: While this line probably made his recent owners frown after a 32-point explosion in Phoenix on Wednesday, it could have been a lot worse. He committed three fouls in his five first-quarter minutes and really didn't have anything going until the fourth. Labissiere continues to show he has terrific moves in the halfcourt and the Kings are starting to feed him the ball more. The Kings are also using him in more lineup combinations as a small forward, which may help if the Kings decide to go with a very big lineup. Labissiere probably won't be a difference-making add, but he should be owned in standard leagues as the Kings try to identify what his limits are. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:00 pm
  • Buddy Hield scores 11 points vs. OKC
    Buddy HIeld scored 11 points with one rebound, one assist and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: Even a homecoming game in Oklahoma couldn't get him going. Hield is coming of a seven-points, zero-dime game on Wednesday and he continues to do very little outside of scoring. There just isn't enough incentive to own the rookie in most leagues right now. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:44 pm
  • Garrett Temple plays 28 minutes
    Garrett Temple scored seven points with three rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: He took some friendly fire from Kosta Koufos to the groin, but he was OK after a trip to the bench. While Temple did start, his time in the first unit likely won't be lasting very long. Even after a decent line today, he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues with the Kings going so young these days. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:38 pm
  • Georgios Papagiannis logs first double-double
    Georgis Papagiannis turned in career-highs 14 points and 11 rebounds for his first NBA double-double of his career against the Thunder on Saturday, adding one assist, one block and one steal in 22 minutes.

    Advice: It was obviously his best game. His defense was better, he had his first make outside of the paint, showed an array of post moves, and only committed two fouls. The days of Papa G getting DNP-CDs are probably over and he's likely looking at close to 20 minutes in the short term and possibly more after that. It's also worth mentioning this game comes with both Anthony Tolliver and Kosta Koufos playing -- one or both will likely rest on Sunday. He's not quite worth adding in standard leagues, but he's trending up for owners in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:27 pm
  • Garrett Temple back in the starting lineup
    Garrett Temple will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: With Arron Afflalo out, there should be a decent amount of minutes going to Temple tonight. He's still not going to be a fantasy option with the Kings going young. Malachi Richardson (hamstring) returning would also take minutes from him Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:47 am
  • Evans, Afflalo, McLemore ruled out Saturday
    Tyreke Evans (ankle), Arron Afflalo (personal) and Ben McLemore (personal) have all been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Evans has been battling a nagging ankle injury. He played just 14 scoreless minutes on Wednesday. There will obviously be plenty of minutes available for the Kings guards that are active on Saturday. Darren Collison sat out Wednesday's game to rest but will be back on Saturday. Buddy Hield should see plenty of playing time. Ty Lawson, Garrett Temple and Langston Galloway will also likely log additional minutes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:33 am
  • John Henson blocks four shots in win
    John Henson blocked four shots on Friday vs. the Lakers with eight points, nine rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Greg Monroe was ejected in the third quarter, so Henson closed this game out for the Bucks and played well. He's averaging 6.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks over his last five games, but the problem is that he's getting just 17.6 minutes per game in that span and coach Jason Kidd has pulled him out of the rotation in the past without warning. For now, he's more of a deep-league pickup if you need blocks. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:30 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 26 points in win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points before fouling out of Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: He fouled out of a game for the fourth time this season, but at least this time he fouled out in the final minute. Giannis shot 11-of-16 from the field in 35 minutes, adding eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks, one triple and four turnovers. The Bucks have won eight out of their last nine games and are seventh in the East, so the Greek Freak will feast the rest of the way with four games on the schedule in each of the next two weeks. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:18 pm
  • Jamal Murray scores 10 points
    Jamal Murray made 4-of-14 from the field for 10 points with five rebounds, three steals and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: He struggled with his shot, at least the usage was there and he didn't turn the ball over. The combo guard minutes are coming with 11 minutes tonight, which is way more than his average since the break. Of course, Danilo Gallinari (knee) not playing slid Will Barton to more of a straight three, so there were minutes available at SG. Regardless, Murray looks like he's part of the next crop of rookie pickups after guys like Tyler Ulis, Ivica Zubac and Skal Labissiere. If you're looking for a rookie with upside, Murray might be your guy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:32 pm
  • Juan Hernangomez comes up with a solid game
    Juan Hernangomez made a start on Thursday with nine points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He's been elite in efficiency for rookies this year and he's always been capable of filling the stat sheet. Per 36 minutes, Hernangomez averaged 13.1 points, 8.3 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.7 blocks and 2.0 treys this season. With both Wilson Chandler (groin) and Danilo Gallinari (knee) having unclear return dates, Juancho is worth a speculative look for those with something to cut. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:21 pm
  • Willy doesn't do much in his start
    Willy Hernangomez did not fare well his start against the Nets on Thursday with four points, six rebounds and one steal in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Foul trouble was the culprit here and he could not handle Brook Lopez down low. There's really nothing to this game besides rookies just having bad games. Hernangomez should remain owned in standard leagues even if Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) can return this weekend. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:38 pm
  • Rudy Gobert destroys Thompson for 20 & 19
    Rudy Gobert had his way against Tristan Thompson on Thursday, racking up 20 points, 19 rebounds, two steals and two blocks while hitting 10-of-13 shots in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Thompson's usually a good defender but he simply couldn't handle or contain Gobert tonight. He's double-doubled in five of his last six games and has missed a total of just six shots over his last four games, hitting a ridiculous 27-of-33 (82%) over that stretch. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:41 pm
  • Gordon Hayward quiet in loss to Cavs
    Gordon Hayward hit just 4-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, five boards, four assists and a steal in 35 minutes of Thursday's 91-83 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Advice: He'd scored 25 and 27 points in his previous two games but had a nine-point dud last Saturday. Hayward's having a fine season but has had trouble putting together long streaks of great games all year. It's not easy to play against LeBron James and he should have a better matchup against the Bulls on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:28 pm
  • Juan Hernangomez, Mason Plumlee will start
    Juancho Hernangomez and Mason Plumlee will start against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: He should get some heavy minutes with Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Wilson Chandler (groin) out. Coach Mike Malone said he doesn't know how long those two vets will be out, so Hernangomez could be a decent speculative add. Mason Plumlee is also expected to start. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:23 pm
  • Willy Hernangomez starting vs. Nets
    Derrick Rose, Courtney Lee, Lance Thomas, Carmelo Anthony, and Willy Hernangomez will start against the Nets on Thursday.

    Advice: The Nets defense can be the most porous in the league, so Hernangomez should have ample opportunity in this game. He should he owned in all standard leagues going forward. We should see plenty of Kyle O'Quinn behind him, too. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:35 pm
  • Buddy Hield gets 21 minutes
    Buddy Hield scored seven points in 21 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday with two rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: While he won't be rested, Hield just isn't that good yet. He hasn't picked up a steal in four of his last five and his assist:turnover ratio is below 1.0 in that span, too. Most fantasy owners should be able to do better. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:52 pm
  • Garrett Temple comes off the bench
    Garrett Temple scored eight points with four rebounds, four assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes off the bench against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: He is likely going to get a rest day at some point and really can't be counted on in fantasy leagues. Temple shouldn't be owned. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:32 pm
  • Papa G blocks three shots
    Georgios Papagiannis blocked a career-high three shots with three rebounds in 13 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: He did need three stitched under his chin due to some contact in the fourth. Papagiannis may have turned in his best game, but he's still a major project. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:30 pm
  • Evans doesn't score in return
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) did not score in 14 minutes with two rebounds, three assists and one steal against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: He didn't look right and couldn't really separate from his defender. Evans is going to be resting more as the season goes on, so he's really not a great property to own in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:25 pm
  • Skal Labissiere explodes for career-high 32
    Skal Labissiere scored a career-high 32 points against the Suns on Wednesday, adding 11 rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

    Advice: The youth movement is on. Skal went berserk in the fourth quarter, scoring the Kings' first 15 points of that frame and scoring 21 total in the fourth. Clearly, he's going to be getting more minutes as the Kings pick their spots on what veterans they will rest next to him. He's been extremely efficient and he's also shown improvement on the glass on defense. He won't be this good, but he should be picked up in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:24 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo limited by fouls vs LAC
    Giannis Antetokounmpo played just 28 minutes vs. the Clippers on Wednesday, but he still finished with 16 points (5-of-10 FGs, 6-of-9 FTs), five rebounds, five assists and one block.

    Advice: Antetokounmpo picked up two fouls in the first eight minutes of the game, forcing a substitution, and he picked up a third foul after playing 4:24 in the second quarter. Jason Kidd was playing it safe, in other words. Giannis came in leading his team in points (23.1), rebounds (8.6), assists (5.5), blocks (1.9), and steals (1.8), and he's successfully guided the Bucks into the Eastern Conference playoff picture. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:06 pm
  • Gordon Hayward posts 25/9/6 in win vs. DET
    Gordon Hayward had 25 points, nine rebounds, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes on Wednesday, helping Utah beat the Pistons in Detroit.

    Advice: The Jazz have won nine of their last 12 games, helping them stave off the Clippers for the No. 4 seed out West. Hayward has been good but not great since the break, and it wouldn't hurt to see more assists (3.4), steals (0.9) and blocks (0.2). Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:27 pm
  • Boris Diaw comes off bench Wednesday
    Boris Diaw headed to the bench vs. Detroit on Wednesday, finishing the road victory with seven points, three assists and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Diaw played just 21 minutes in a start vs. the Clippers on Monday, and his role isn't going to change much whether he's starting or coming off the bench. Quin Snyder said he'd play the matchups until Derrick Favors (knee) can return, so the PF position is likely to be fluid. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:25 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (ankle) probable vs. Suns
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) is probable against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: It looks like the Kings are going to play all the guys they rested on Monday and rest Darren Collison and Anthony Tolliver. Evans is almost certainly going to be rested again, so he's not really worth owning. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:33 pm
  • Boris Diaw will come off the bench Wednesday
    Boris Diaw will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: With Derrick Favors (knee) on the sidelines, Utah has been moving Diaw and Joe Johnson in and out of the starting five based on the matchup, but Diaw's unimpressive numbers haven't changed based on how he enters the game. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:19 pm
  • Willy Hernangomez scores 13 w/ 16 boards
    Willy Hernangomez racked up 13 points, 16 rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in 31 minutes vs. the Pacers on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Knicks moved Hernangomez to the bench tonight for matchup reasons, but it didn't matter in the end. Kristaps Porzingis left the game with a thigh contusion and didn't return, so Hernangomez closed this game out. He shot 6-of-12 from the field and 1-of-4 from the line, and while he's a must-own player for the final stretch, the bad news is that the Knicks only have one more game this week. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:01 pm
  • Willy Hernangomez to come off the bench Tues
    Willy Hernangomez will come off the bench Tuesday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Lance Thomas is starting Tuesday, with Kristaps Porzingis sliding over and starting at center. This change was likely made to matchup with the Pacers frontline, so it may not be permanent. Hernangomez should still see plenty of court time as the first big off the bench, but it will be difficult for him to play the 28-plus minutes he was logging as a starter. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:45 pm
  • Rudy Gobert double-doubles in return
    Rudy Gobert played through a sore right leg on Monday and hit 5-of-6 shots for 11 points, 10 rebounds and a block in 37 minutes.

    Advice: He may not be out of the injury woods just yet, but the heavy minutes were promising and he looked good in a tough win over the Clippers. If he's playing for the Jazz, he should be in your fantasy lineup every night. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:11 am
  • Rudy Gobert returned to action on Monday March 13. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:57 pm
  • Jamal Murray scores 22 points w/ five triples
    Jamal Murray scored 22 points with five 3-pointers, three assists, two rebounds, one block and two steals in Monday's easy win over the Lakers.

    Advice: The Nuggets were missing two key pieces in Wilson Chandler (groin) and Kenneth Faried (back), so that opened up some minutes for the rookie. He played a total of 30 minutes with 19 of those coming at PG, but coach Michael Malone said a few days ago that the rookie isn't ready to unseat Jameer Nelson as the starter. This was Murray's sixth game of the season with 20+ points, but just his first since Feb. 4. While his dynasty owners should be pumped, his re-draft value is still limited and the Nuggets only have two more games this week. Give him a look if Chandler misses another game. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:02 pm
  • Buddy Hield productive in Monday's start
    Buddy Hield finished with 17 points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes on Monday against the Magic.

    Advice: Hield was in the starting five with Tyreke Evans (ankle) sidelined and Arron Afflalo getting a scheduled day of rest. He has 17 or more points with five or more rebounds in three straight games. The Kings are in tank mode, but they're giving their key acquisition in the DeMarcus Cousins trade a long look and he is looking like the real deal with regular playing time. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:33 pm
  • Skal Labissiere swats four shots in win
    Skal Labissiere scored 11 points with seven rebounds and four blocked shots in Monday's start against the Magic.

    Advice: Labissiere moved into the starting five with several regulars out with either an injury or a planned rest. The rookie made the most of the chance, grabbing at least five boards for the fifth straight game, and eighth time in the past nine outings. The rookie is worth picking up in all deeper seasonal fantasy formats and he is a must-have in long-term keeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:29 pm
  • Gordon Hayward bags four 3-pointers
    Gordon Hayward finished with 27 points while hitting nine of his 18 field-goal attempts in Monday's win against the Clippers.

    Advice: Hayward posted four 3-pointers to give him at least one triple in 10 consecutive outings. It was a nice bounce back after his worst performance since the last All-Star break last time out. As mentioned, there is no reason to worry when he occasionally has a poor game. He remains a must-start in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:41 pm
  • Boris Diaw doesn't do much in start
    Boris Diaw made the start Monday against the Clippers, but he finished with just five points, three rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Diaw made the start with Derrick Favors (knee) on the shelf, but he did very little with the opportunity. It was the 20th straight game without a double-digit point total dating back to Jan. 24. Even when he is in the starting five Diaw is only worth a look in the very deepest of seasonal fantasy play. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:33 pm
  • Garrett Temple starting Monday's game
    Garrett Temple is starting Monday's game against the Magic.

    Advice: With Tyreke Evans (ankle) out, and a few others receiving a planned rest, the Kings are dressing just nine players. Temple is in line for a healthy amount of minutes, perhaps his most since returning from a long-term hamstring injury. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:34 pm
  • Skal Labissiere and Temple starting Monday
    The Kings will start Darren Collison, Garrett Temple, Buddy Hield, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle), Ty Lawson (rest), Kosta Koufos (rest) and Arron Afflalo (rest) are all out, so the Kings will only have nine available players. This is the first career start for Labissiere, but he's certainly earned it with some impressive play over the last few weeks. With the Kings in tank mode, we should see a lot more of him down the stretch. He's on the radar as a pickup in deeper leagues, but we'll let you know how he fares tonight. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:33 pm
  • Tyreke, Lawson, Afflalo and Koufos out Monday
    Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle), Ty Lawson (rest), Kosta Koufos (rest) and Arron Afflalo (rest) will not play on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Unlike Lawson, Koufos and Afflalo, Evans is not healthy and this is the same ankle that he sprained earlier this season. With the Kings going nowhere, Evans is likely going to be rested a lot down the stretch. He should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Suns. Darren Collison looks like a solid play and he should be a usage rate monster, while Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore should get a ton of burn on the wings. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:11 pm
  • Boris Diaw starting, Joe Johnson to bench
    Boris Diaw will start against the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: The move will send Joe Johnson to the bench. Derrick Favors (knee) is out and the Jazz need size against Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, so the lineup change makes sense. Diaw isn't a great fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:22 pm
  • Rudy Gobert (leg) will play on Monday
    Rudy Gobert (right leg soreness) will play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Gobert was listed as questionable after missing Saturday's game, but he went through the morning shootaround and will give it a go. The Jazz hold a 1.0 game lead over the Clippers in the West, so expect Gobert to see his normal workload if his leg holds up well. Season-long owners should obviously activate him. Jeff Withey will return to the bench. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:25 pm
  • Rudy Gobert (leg) is a game-time call Monday
    Rudy Gobert (right leg soreness) was able to go through the morning shootaround.

    Advice: He was expected to have an MRI over the weekend, but we haven't heard any results yet -- no news is usually good news. Gobert is still listed as questionable and he's expected to be a game-time call -- he added that he feels good but wants to see if his leg flares up on him in warmups. Jeff Withey could be looking at another start if Gobert is unable to go. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:58 am
  • Rudy Gobert (leg) had an MRI?
    According to Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune, Rudy Gobert was expected to undergo an MRI over the weekend.

    Advice: Gobert collided with James Harden on Wednesday and his leg flared up on him during warmups on Saturday. "We want to be smart about everything," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said, calling the decision to hold Gobert out on Saturday vs. the Thunder "precautionary." "Hopefully it's nothing more than that." There's no word of any MRI results, but Gobert is officially questionable for Monday's game vs. the Clippers. While he did say he expects to play, he has some extra incentive to suit up with the Jazz currently 1.0 game ahead of the Clippers in the standings. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:08 am
  • Malone may consider starting Murray?
    Nuggets coach Michael Malone hinted that he's not ready to hand the starting PG job over to Jamal Murray just yet.

    Advice: "I have not gotten to that point yet," Malone said. "Obviously, with 18 games to go, we’ll see what happens in those 18 games. I think Jameer [Nelson] has earned the right to be our starter for the time being." These comments were made before Nelson was listed on the injury report with a right hip flexor strain, and he's currently questionable for Monday's game vs. the Lakers. If Nelson can't go, Murray seems like the obvious choice to start with Emmanuel Mudiay still in the doghouse. The rookie is worth a speculative add in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:19 am
