  • Aaron Gordon chucks up six donut in win
    Aaron Gordon missed all six of his shot attempts on Wednesday, finishing with just five rebounds, one assist and two turnovers across 22 minutes in a win over the Knicks.

    Advice: AG has not stepped up like we expected him to in wake of all the injuries in Denver, and tonight's scoreless performance was coming off the heels of three-straight, single-digit stinkers. The Nuggets only have six games remaining on their schedule, and we doubt Gordon will suddenly turn things around over this final stretch. Don't hesitate to send him to the wire if you're currently scrapping through the Fantasy Finals. Today, 9:49 pm
  • REVENGE GAME! Rivers drops in 25 points vs. NYK
    Austin Rivers went off against the team that traded him at the deadline on Wednesday, tallying 25 points, three rebounds, three assists, six triples, three steals and one turnover in 28 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Rivers got his points efficiently, finishing 7-of-13 from the floor and 5-of-6 at the line, and he's going to have increased opportunity in Denver while P.J. Dozier (groin) and Monte Morris (hamstring) are watching from the sidelines alongside Jamal Murray (knee). Michael Porter Jr. confirmed after the game that this was indeed a revenge game, saying, "He’s talked to me extensively how difficult it was for him in New York. So he told me coming into tonight how aggressive he was going to be and he was trying to get those dudes back." He got his revenge tonight, but we still wouldn't trust him to be consistent, particularly with Denver's next two matchups coming against Utah and Brooklyn. Today, 9:41 pm
  • Millsap plays good defense but has bad stat line
    Paul Millsap returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday with P.J. Dozier (adductor) joining a plethora of Denver players on the inactive list and finished with six points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal over 24 minutes.

    Advice: Millsap shot just 3-of-13 from the floor tonight, but his defense was superb, as he helped hold Julius Randle to just 5-of-15 shooting and finished with a plus/minus rating of plus-17. At this stage in his career, Millsap is a lot more valuable to the Nuggets than any fantasy team. Michael Porter Jr. finished with a team-best plus/minus of plus-24 on his way to 17 points, six rebounds, three triples, three assists and one turnover in 25 minutes. Today, 9:37 pm
  • Nikola Jokic posts dominant double-double in win
    Nikola Jokic dominated the Knicks on Wednesday, tallying 32 points, 12 rebounds, six assists, two steals, two swats and four turnovers across 29 minutes in a 113-97 win.

    Advice: Jokic set a new career-high for points in a quarter when he netted 24 on 8-of-9 shooting from the field and 8-of-10 at the stripe over his first 12 minutes, and in typical Jokic fashion, he deflected from his amazing performance during his postgame interview and instead heaped praise on head coach Mike Malone. "The guy gave me everything. The guy gave me the freedom," said the MVP candidate of his coach. "He led me. He showed me the way. And we built a great relationship... it’s more than basketball. It’s six years of building something together." Today, 9:29 pm
  • Noel (ankle) brings the defensive stats in return
    Nerlens Noel (ankle) ripped away two steals and sent six shots packing in his return to action on Wednesday.

    Advice: Noel was moving around fine after missing Monday's game, which was the second of a back-to-back, so he should be good to go for Friday's game in Pheonix. He added five points (2-of-3 FG, 1-of-2 FT), five rebounds and two turnovers in his 30 minutes of floor time, but the defensive stats are why you have him on your roster. Taj Gibson returned to the second unit and finished with two points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block over 12 minutes; while Norvel Pelle saw just five minutes off the bench and contributed two points and one rebound in the loss. Today, 9:25 pm
  • Alec Burks (knee) chucks up seven donuts in loss
    Alec Burks (knee) was scoreless in 16 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, finishing with just two rebounds, two assists and one block while missing all seven of his shots.

    Advice: Burks is still working on finding his rhythm after a lengthy absence, but while he's playing like this, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues. Today, 9:24 pm
  • Elfrid Payton continues to do nothing as a starter
    Elfrid Payton continued his ineffectiveness through 17 minutes as a starter on Wednesday, finishing with six points, six rebounds, two assists, one steal and four turnovers in a loss to the Nuggets.

    Advice: Payton may be starting in New York, but he's not a closer, nor is he a great option in fantasy hoops. Tom Thibodeau recently said that he views his reserve PGs as the true starters, but that Payton is "an important part of the team." That may be true for actual basketball purposes, but he's not doing much for you in fantasy hoops, so we'd recommend sending him to the wire. Derrick Rose finished with 14 points, two rebounds, three assists, two triples and two turnovers in 27 minutes off the bench; while Immanuel Quickley produced 18 points, three rebounds, three triples, one steal and one turnover in 25 minutes. Today, 9:03 pm
  • Terence Davis quietly making noise for Sacto
    Terence Davis played 20 minutes and hit 4-of-12 shots and 1-of-8 3-pointers for 10 points, six rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks in Wednesday's 104-93 win over the Pacers. 

    Advice: TD is getting some run with several Kings banged up and in street clothes and he's averaging 12.8 points, 4.5 boards, 3.0 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.5 blocks and 2.3 3-pointers over his last four games. Today, 9:02 pm
  • Anthony Edwards erupts for 42 points with eight 3s
    Anthony Edwards erupted for a career-high-tying 42 points on 17-of-22 shooting Wednesday, adding six rebounds, seven assists, eight triples, one steal, one block and just three turnovers across 38 minutes in a loss to the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Not only did Edwards become the first Minnesota rookie in franchise history to record a 30/5/5 line tonight, but he also tied Kevin Love and Stephen Marbury for the single-game, rookie record for 3-pointers in a game. Karl-Anthony Towns also had a solid night with 22 points (7-of-15 FG, 5-of-5 FT), four rebounds, five assists, three triples, one steal and four turnovers in just 24 minutes, but the end result was yet another loss for Minnesota, dropping them to 20-46 on the year. Today, 8:56 pm
  • Kevin Love posts +/- of -45 for Cavaliers
    Kevin Love hit 7-of-14 shots and four 3-pointers for 18 points, eight rebounds, two assists and a steal in 26 minutes of Wednesday's blowout loss to the Blazers. 

    Advice: We weren't even going to blurb him tonight and while it's not really fantasy related, it's not every night we have the privilege of blurbing a player with a +/- of -45, which is what Love accomplished tonight. If you don't know, that means his team was outscored by 45 points while he was on the floor tonight. And that was the lowest +/- by a Cavs player since Antawn Jamison in 2012. And if you would have told us that both 32-year-old Kevin Love and 38-year-old Anderson Varejao would play in a meaningless game for the Cavs on May 6 back in December, we would have probably lost a lot of money. Today, 8:55 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell posts 22/14 double-double
    D'Angelo Russell posted a 22-point, 14-assist double-double in his return to the starting lineup on Wednesday.

    Advice: D'Lo finished 6-of-13 from the floor and 8-of-8 at the stripe, and he added four rebounds, one steal, two triples and an unfortunate five turnovers in his 37 minutes of floor time. Chris Finch said before the game that he wanted to get Russell in the starting lineup for Minnesota's final seven games to develop some better chemistry with Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards, so it doesn't sound like he's in any danger of Ricky Rubio taking his job again. Particularly considering that Rubio finished tonight's game with just two points, four rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 17 minutes off the bench. Today, 8:50 pm
  • Brandon Clarke double-doubles in 23 minutes
    Brandon Clarke posted a 12-point, 10-rebound double-double in 23 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: Clarke finished 5-of-11 from the floor and 2-of-2 at the stripe, and he added one assist, one block and one turnover while he was out there. He had fallen out of the rotation over the past two games with Jaren Jackson Jr. back in the mix, but with JJJ receiving a rest day today, he was able to get back out there and had an okay stat line. There's a decent chance he'll return to collecting DNP-CDs on Thursday, though. Today, 8:47 pm
  • Ja Morant powers Memphis to win with 37/10 line
    Ja Morant powered the Grizzlies to a 139-135 win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday with 37 points, 10 assists, four rebounds, two steals, one block, one triple and four turnovers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Morant received some heat when he proclaimed himself to be a top-5 PG in the league on TNT early today, but he went out tonight and looked every bit the part. “I said what I said. I believe in myself 100 percent," Morant stated after the game. "I’m not going to sit here and say I’m the worst guard in the league." Before he came through with this gem of a quote, he also said he had a "bad game" tonight and that it was "unacceptable" for him to brick two free throws down the stretch, so it wasn't coming from a place of cockiness, but confidence. He's a pleasure to watch and it'll be interesting to see where he winds up in next year's fantasy drafts. Today, 8:40 pm
  • Jonas Valanciunas struggles in matchup with KAT
    Jonas Valanciunas had a rough night on Wednesday, contributing just nine points, five rebounds, two assists and two steals before fouling out in 20 minutes.

    Advice: JV balled out in his previous two meetings with Karl-Anthony Towns this season, but tonight, KAT got the best of him — although the Grizzlies still came away with the win. This was just the fifth time this season that JV has been held to single-digits in the scoring column, and the first time since March 17, but we'd anticipate him having a big bounce-back performance against the tanking Pistons on Thursday. Today, 8:33 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson hits 12-of-16 for 30 points in win
    Jordan Clarkson hit 12-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 30 points, six rebounds and four assists in Wednesday's 126-94 blowout win over the Spurs. 

    Advice: This was his third 30-point game of the season and he joined Bojan Bogdanovic (24 points on 10-of-13 shooting) and Joe Ingles (14/5/7 with three triples) to lead the Jazz to a very easy win against a Spurs team that pulled most of its starters before halftime. Jingles and Clarkson are must-start players with Mike Conley on the shelf with his ongoing hamstring injury. Today, 8:31 pm
  • Nikola Jokic (toe) starting for Nuggets Wednesday
    Nikola Jokic (toe) is starting for the Nuggets on Wednesday. 

    Advice: He never really seemed to be in doubt and was listed as probable so he'll look to take advantage of Jakob Poeltl and the Spurs tonight. Jokic will be joined by Facundo Campazzo, Aaron Gordon, Michael Porter Jr. and Paul Millsap in the starting unit. Today, 5:30 pm
  • Alec Burks (knee) available to play Wednesday
    Alec Burks (contused left knee) will be available to play on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Burks tweaked his left knee late in Monday's game, but he'll play through the pain tonight. He's not a great option in most leagues, though, as he's still working on his conditioning after being forced into a lengthy quarantine. Today, 5:20 pm
  • Nerlens Noel, Pelle will play Wednesday
    Nerlens Noel (ankle) and Norvel Pelle (ankle) will play on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Noel will likely be starting tonight, which will shift Taj Gibson back to the second unit, and Pelle could drop from the rotation entirely. Today, 4:39 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell starting for Rubio on Wednesday
    D'Angelo Russell will start over Ricky Rubio for the Wolves on Wednesday night against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Rubio has been struggling and we'll finally get a look at Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns together in the first unit. There is no report of an injury for Rubio, so this simply looks like a coach's lineup change. Anthony Edwards, Josh Okogie, Jaden McDaniels and KAT will round out the starting lineup for the Wolves. Today, 4:27 pm
  • Nerlens Noel (ankle) expected to play vs. Denver
    Nerlens Noel (sprained left ankle) is expected to play vs. Denver on Wednesday.

    Advice: Noel got hurt on Sunday, but it sounds like it was minor enough that he'll be back after missing one game on Monday. His return would reduce Taj Gibson's streaming appeal, while ensuring that Norvel Pelle (ankle) isn't rostered anywhere. Today, 12:12 pm
  • Alec Burks (bruised knee) probable vs. Nuggets
    Alec Burks (bruised left knee) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Burks got hurt on Monday but it appears to have been a very minor sprain, so hopefully it won't cost him any time. His conditioning and "timing" (to use coach Tom Thibodeau's word) are a work in progress, so there's some risk deploying him in any fantasy setting. Today, 11:01 am
  • Kevin Love on track to play in back-to-back Wed
    Kevin Love isn't on the Cavs' injury report for Wednesday's game vs. Portland.

    Advice: Love played 34 minutes during Tuesday's overtime defeat, the second-most minutes he's played all season. It's a bit surprising that he's not ruled out in the second half of this back-to-back, but for whatever reason Love continues to suit up at the bitter end of the Cavs' rebuilding season. Today, 10:27 am
  • Terance Davis scores 18 off Kings bench in win
    Terance Davis played 31 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-13 shots and three 3-pointers for 18 points, five rebounds and three assists in Tuesday's win over the Thunder.

    Advice: The Kings don't appear to have a real shot at the playoffs any longer and are missing De'Aaron Fox, Tyrese Haliburton and Harrison Barnes, so guys like Davis, Delon Wright, Richaun Holmes, Buddy Hield and Marvin Bagley should do the heavy lifting for the Kings until further notice. Yesterday, 7:44 pm
  • Nikola Jokic (toe) probable for Wednesday night
    Nikola Jokic (sore toe, right foot) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks. 

    Advice: Jokic has yet to miss a game this season, and it appears unlikely that he will have to sit out Wednesday's home game. Those who have him rostered should carry on with their business, and expect to see the MVP favorite in the starting lineup. Yesterday, 6:16 pm
  • Nerlens Noel (sprained ankle) questionable vs. DEN
    Nerlens Noel (sprained left ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Denver.

    Advice: The Knicks could certainly use Noel active to help defend MVP frontrunner Nikola Jokic. We should have a better feel for his status after shootaround, but if he's out Taj Gibson is suddenly a streaming option. Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau also recently praised Novel Pelle (also questionable with a sprained ankle), so Pelle could see his minutes spike. Yesterday, 2:57 pm
  • Alec Burks sprains ankle Monday, doesn't return
    Alec Burks sprained his ankle late in Monday's game and didn't return, finishing with nine points, two rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Burks was just returning from an eight-game absence due to COVID protocols, and coach Tom Thibodeau said afterward, "His timing’s still not there, [but] it will get there." According to Knicks writer Marc Berman, "[Burks'] status now appears uncertain for the game in Denver on Wednesday." We should have an official injury status on Tuesday night. Yesterday, 9:30 am
  • Austin Rivers quiet but plays 33 minutes for Nuggs
    Austin Rivers came off the bench to hit 1-of-3 shots for three points, three rebounds, six assists and a steal in 33 minutes off the bench in Monday's loss. 

    Advice: P.J. Dozier went down with a groin/hip injury tonight and Rivers joins Facundo Campazzo and Shaq Harrison as the only healthy guards currently on the roster. Rivers might be worth a flier and could start in the next one if Dozier is out, but the numbers really haven't been there for him. You can probably find a safer option as you try to win a fantasy championship this week. Monday, 9:59 pm
  • Nikola Jokic's 32 not enough in loss to Lakers
    Nikola Jokic hit 12-of-28 shots, a 3-pointer and 7-of-8 free throws for 32 points, nine rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block in Monday's 93-89 loss to the Lakers. 

    Advice: Jokic didn't shoot it particularly well tonight and Marc Gasol flashed some good defense at him with Andre Drummond in foul trouble tonight. Jokic still filled the stat sheet despite his worst shooting night since April 14 and looks like the favorite to win this year's MVP Award. Monday, 9:53 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson hits 7-of-20 shots for 16 points
    Jordan Clarkson hit 7-of-20 shots for 16 points, six rebounds, five assists, two triples and two steals across 34 minutes in Monday's win over the Spurs.

    Advice: The counting stats were nice, but the shooting percentage was garbage, and he also committed an unfortunate five turnovers while he was out there. Clarkson was looking like a steady, top-50 stud through the first half of the season, but he's ranked outside the top-150 since the All-Star break because he's been connecting on just 37% of his shot attempts while jacking up 16.1 FGA a night. He's a much more attractive option in points leagues. Monday, 9:47 pm
  • Ja Morant hits 2-of-13 shots before ejection in L
    Ja Morant hit just 2-of-13 shots for eight points, five rebounds and six assists in 38 minutes before being ejected from Monday's loss for arguing with officials in a 118-104 loss to the Knicks. 

    Advice: Ja did have a nice highlight-reel reverse layup but was otherwise pretty bad in this one. His name is probably bigger than his fantasy game right now and he's returning just 16th-round fantasy value, according to He still has time to get his career turned around but it's been a pretty rough ride thus far. His coach, Taylor Jenkins, was also ejected and the resulting free throws allowed the Knicks to hold off a Memphis comeback and easily win the game. Morant has hit just16-of-55 shots over his last four games. Monday, 8:43 pm
  • Alec Burks scores nine in 16 minutes on Monday
    Alec Burks returned from an illness on Monday and hit 4-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for nine points, two rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes. 

    Advice: He hadn't played since April 14 due to a COVID-related illness but was back at it tonight. He could get hot and be a fantasy asset at some point, but for now he still belongs on the waiver wire except in the deepest of leagues. Monday, 8:36 pm
  • Alec Burks (illness) will play on Monday
    Updating a previous note, Alec Burks will play on Monday night. 

    Advice: He's been out since April 14 with a COVID-related absence and had 21 points, seven boards and four 3-pointers on that night. He's worth a look on Monday in deeper formats. Monday, 4:56 pm
  • Alec Burks "sounds like a go" for Knicks Monday
    Alec Burks sounds like he'll return from a COVID-related absence on Monday.

    Advice: He last played on April 14 and has been working on his conditioning recently. He went off for 21 points, seven boards and four 3-pointers the last time we saw him so it will be interesting to see how he plays tonight. Monday, 4:41 pm
  • Nerlens Noel (ankle) won't play Monday
    Nerlens Noel (ankle) won't play on Monday against the Grizzlies. 

    Advice: Noel tweaked his ankle on Sunday and wasn't able to play through it, and won't be able to again tonight, either. Taj Gibson is pretty relevant with this news and it's possible Norvel Pelle could even be of service tonight. Monday, 4:26 pm
  • Nerlens Noel (ankle) ruled out for Monday
    Nerlens Noel (sprained left ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Noel rolled his left ankle on Sunday and was forced out of the game, so it's not terribly surprising to see him hit the sidelines tonight. Taj Gibson, Obi Toppin and Norvel Pelle should get some extended run tonight with Noel on the sidelines. Monday, 4:22 pm
  • Nerlens Noel gets questionable tag Monday
    Nerlens Noel (ankle) is questionable vs. the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Advice: Noel tweaked his ankle on Sunday night and was unable to return, but we've heard little since -- this update comes from the official injury report. If Noel is unable to go, the Knicks will rely on Taj Gibson and possibly Norvel Pelle at the five. Monday, 10:33 am
  • Nerlens Noel (ankle) won't return Sunday
    Nerlens Noel (sprained left ankle) will not return vs. Houston on Sunday.

    Advice: This leaves the Knicks very thin at center now, with Norvel Pelle likely being the next man in line for the center spot. We'll see how Noel's ankle reacts overnight, but with the Knicks playing the lowly Rockets, hopefully they were just being cautious with the big man. Sunday, 6:41 pm
  • Alec Burks not expected to play on Sunday
    Alec Burks is not expected to play on Sunday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: He's still working on getting his conditioning to where it needs to be, but while he's collecting DNP-CDs, you can be confident leaving him on the waiver wire. Sunday, 3:46 pm
  • Nikola Jokic bolsters MVP case in win over LAC
    Nikola Jokic put on a masterclass in Saturday's win over the Clippers, accounting for 30 points (9-of-17 FGs, 10-of-10 FTs), 14 rebounds, seven assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes. 

    Advice: The Clippers did not have an answer for Jokic, who got his regardless of who Tyronn Lue called on to defend the MVP favorite. Ivica Zubac started the night on Jokic, and down the stretch it was DeMarcus Cousins who was given the task of defending the Joker. None of it mattered, as Jokic posted his league-best 55th double-double without committing a single turnover. Denver, which is without Jamal Murray (knee), Monte Morris (hamstring) and Will Barton (hamstring), has now won five straight and nine of its last 10. And their talented center is the biggest reason why. Saturday, 10:02 pm
  • Anthony Edwards leads Wolves with 29 in OT loss
    Anthony Edwards hit 9-of-21 shots, two 3-pointers and 9-of-11 free throws for 29 points, nine rebounds, six assists and a block in 38 minutes of Saturday's overtime loss to the Pelicans. 

    Advice: He had 25 points in his last game and might try to go on a late tear now that LaMelo Ball is back to try to win Rookie of the Year. Edwards' shooting isn't quite as bad as we thought it would be and he looks like a nice building block to team with Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell next season, when the Wolves will be looking to shock the world and make the playoffs. Saturday, 8:03 pm
  • Kevin Love goes off for 25 points in loss to Heat
    Kevin Love hit 9-of-14 shots and 7-of-10 3-pointers for a season-high 25 points, six rebounds and three assists in Saturday's 124-107 loss to the Heat. 

    Advice: Love failed to score in 22 minutes on Friday so it's understandable if you had him on the bench tonight. He has been rebounding at a decent rate but you have to think the Cavs are going to shut him down at some point. In fact, this could have been this season's swan song, although that's just us guessing. He couldn't miss against the Heat tonight. Saturday, 7:27 pm
  • Brandon Clarke scores nine points vs. ORL
    Brandon Clarke had nine points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 18 minutes vs. Orlando on Friday.

    Advice: Clarke’s fantasy value is trending in the wrong direction because his minutes have tanked since the return of Jaren Jackson Jr, playing an average of 19.8 minutes over his last five. And that includes one rest-related DNP for JJJ who also sat out tonight on the front end of the back-to-back. Unless he leapfrogs Kyle Anderson, which is unlikely, Clarke is strictly a deep-league asset. Friday, 7:21 pm
  • Anthony Edwards cooks Warriors in fourth quarter
    Anthony Edwards scored 18 points in the fourth quarter of a win against Golden State, finishing with 25 points, five boards, three assists, a block and a triple. 

    Advice: He had a quiet first three quarters but came alive in the fourth to say the very least. He hit 20+ points for the 29th this time this season, and no other rookie has more than 14 games of such a mark. Edwards was even efficient tonight, going 10-of-19 from the field, and he looks to ready to finish out the season strongly. With LaMelo Ball (wrist) still not back in action, it looks like the ROY award is his to lose. Thursday, 7:54 pm
  • Woj: Nuggets plan to sign Austin Rivers for season
    According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Nuggets plan to sign Austin Rivers to a contract that runs through the remainder of this season. 

    Advice: With Jamal Murray (torn ACL), Monte Morris (hamstring) and Will Barton (hamstring) all sidelined due to injury, Rivers has helped fill a sizable void on the perimeter. In five games with the Nuggets, Rivers is averaging 5.2 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.6 3-pointers in just over 24 minutes per. He doesn't offer a great deal fantasy-wise, but Rivers has been solid in spot duty for the Nuggets. Thursday, 11:30 am
  • Nikola Jokic stuffs Zion for game-winning block
    Nikola Jokic had an epic, game-sealing block on Zion Williamson during Wednesday's win over the Pelicans, finishing with 32 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, two triples, three steals and three swats over 36 minutes.

    Advice: There was quite a bit of contact on that final block, but the refs swallowed their whistles on the final possession of the game, and the Nuggets got the win. The Joker finished 12-of-20 from the floor, 2-of-4 from distance and 6-of-8 from the stripe in his efficient night, and the only negative was his six turnovers, but that's easy to forgive when he's pumping out stat lines like this. Wednesday, 9:54 pm
  • Nerlens Noel racks up four steals, five blocks
    Nerlens Noel hit 3-of-6 shots for eight points, eight rebounds, three assists, four steals and five blocks in Wednesday's 113-94 win over the Bulls. 

    Advice: Noel is making the loss of Mitchell Robinson an afterthought and while he didn't even set a season high in steals or blocks tonight, he is helping the Knicks right now, as they've won 10 of their last 11 games and have a stranglehold on the No. 4 seed in the East currently. Wednesday, 7:48 pm
  • Kevin Love hits 2-of-11 shots in loss
    Kevin Love, who is somehow still plugging along for the Cavs, hit 2-of-11 shots and two 3-pointers for six points, 10 rebounds, six assists and three steals in Wednesday's loss to the Magic. 

    Advice: Despite the horrific shooting, Love still managed a decent fantasy line a game after he had a meltdown and quit on his team in his last game. He apologized and things appear to be all good, but it's hard to believe he's still playing in meaningless games this deep into the season. One of his 3-pointers actually briefly tied the game late after the Cavaliers trailed by 23 at the start of the fourth quarter. Wednesday, 6:38 pm
  • Update: Alec Burks won't play Wednesday
    Updating a previous report, Alec Burks will not be available for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: He's finally out of quarantine, but he'll now need to work on his conditioning before he's logging meaningful minutes again. Wednesday, 3:49 pm
  • Alec Burks (COVID-protocols) available to play Wed
    Alec Burks (COVID-protocols) will be available to play on Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: He'll be available, but that doesn't necessarily mean he'll get out there, as he's missed the past six games and likely still needs to work on his conditioning. He'd be a risky guy to deploy in most settings tonight. Wednesday, 2:42 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell hits 5-of-17 shots in win
    D'Angelo Russell hit 5-of-17 shots, 1-of-8 3-pointers and 4-of-5 free throws for 15 points, three boards, seven assists and a steal in 29 minutes of Tuesday's 114-107 win over the Rockets, the third straight W for the Wolves. 

    Advice: Russell came into this one on a hot shooting streak but couldn't find it tonight, although he did make a few big plays down the stretch as both teams went on fourth-quarter runs in a tight game in the end. Russell had scored at least 23 points in three of his previous four games and is currently running circles around Ricky Rubio, who has scored just two points in each of his last three games. Wolves fans have to be intrigued by what could be next season if Karl-Anthony Towns and Russell can stay healthy and Anthony Edwards can build on a great rookie season. But how much longer the Wolves keep rolling their future out there in meaningless games remains to be seen. Russell will look to bounce back against the Warriors on Thursday. Tuesday, 8:49 pm
  • Cavaliers may fine Kevin Love for Monday's antics
    The Cavaliers are "internally" dealing with Kevin Love's bizarre display during Monday's game, when he slapped the ball inbounds for a critical turnover.

    Advice: Love has apologized to his teammates for quitting on the play, and said his frustration was directed at the referees. It's an incident with echoes of Jan. 2020, when Love apologized for "childish" behavior after showing up his teammates and coaches, coincidentally also in a road game vs. the Raptors. The 'shutdown clock' just jumped a few hours closer to midnight for Love, though for now we'll assume he's available vs. the Magic on Wednesday. Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports reports that Love "could be fined" by the Cavs but there's no mention of a possible suspension. Tuesday, 9:28 am
  • Nikola Jokic double-doubles in blowout win
    Nikola Jokic posted a 24-point, 15-rebound double-double during Monday's 120-96 trouncing of the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Jokic had his double-double by halftime, and he added five dimes, two triples, two steals and an unfortunate six turnovers in his 30 minutes of floor time. He got his points efficiently too, finishing 6-of-12 from the field and a perfect 10-of-10 at the stripe. Michael Porter Jr. also kept his hot streak going on Monday with 31 points (12-of-19 FG, 4-of-5 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, three triples, one steal, one block and two turnovers in 36 minutes.

  • Aaron Gordon scores 15 points with two triples
    Aaron Gordon scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting Monday, to go with five rebounds, two assists, two triples and one steal over 22 minutes in an easy win vs. Memphis.

    Advice: This was a nice bounce-back performance from Gordon after he was held to just seven points over 20 minutes on Saturday, and he likely would have had an even better stat line if the game weren't such a blowout. He's still finding his footing in Denver after spending the first 6.5 years of his career in Orlando, but he's looking at a ton of opportunity with Jamal Murray (knee) done for the year and Will Barton out with a hamstring injury, so he has a chance for a strong finish.

  • Ja Morant scores team-high 27 points in loss
    Ja Morant dropped in a team-high 27 points on 10-of-15 shooting Monday, to go with six rebounds, six assists, one steal and three turnovers across 30 minutes in a blowout loss to the Nuggets.

    Advice: Morant went 0-of-4 from distance in this one, but he was a respectable 7-of-9 at the stripe tonight, which was nice to see as he's been converting just 65.1% of his freebies in April. Jonas Valanciunas was Memphis' second-leading scorer tonight with 13 points (6-of-9 FG, 1-of-2 FT), three rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in 23 minutes, while the rest of the Memphis starters were held to single digits in the 24-point loss. Apr 26, 9:59 pm
  • D'Angelo Russell posts 27/12/7 line in win vs. UTA
    D'Angelo Russell hit 10-of-16 shots for a game-high 27 points during Monday's 105-104 win over the Jazz, adding two rebounds, 12 assists, seven trey-bombs, one block and three turnovers in 31 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: D'Lo was locked and loaded from the jump, giving the Wolves an immediate scoring punch as soon as he entered the game, and he helped Minnesota bounce-back from a 17-point first quarter with a 32-14 second quarter run that included 12 straight buckets from Russell to close out the first half. Karl-Anthony Towns also had a solid game, tallying 21 points (7-of-13 FG, 6-of-7 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and four turnovers across 36 minutes in the upset win. Apr 26, 9:37 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson hits 5-of-20 shots for 13 points
    Jordan Clarkson couldn't buy a bucket on Monday, finishing 5-of-20 from the floor, 1-of-10 from distance and 2-of-2 at the stripe for 13 points in a loss to the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Clarkson did manage to tack on four rebounds, eight assists and two steals in his 27 minutes off the bench, and he only committed one turnover while he was out there, so it wasn't a total loss. Still, there's no denying that he's been struggling with his shot over the past three, but he should be able to turn it around on Wednesday against the defensively-challenged Kings. Apr 26, 9:18 pm
  • Kevin Love plays poorly; throws temper tantrum
    Kevin Love did not play well on Monday, contributing 11 points (3-of-9 FG, 5-of-5 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and two turnovers across 24 minutes in a loss to the Raptors.

    Advice: Love let his frustrations get the best of him, and in a two possession game late in the third he just casually batted the ball away on what was supposed to be an in-bounds play that directly led to a bucket for Toronto. He was benched after that and went into the locker room before the final buzzer sounded, but he did apologize to his teammates after the game. It'll be interesting to see if he faces further disciplinary action from the team for his behavior tonight. Apr 26, 8:21 pm
  • Aaron Gordon starting for Nuggets on Monday
    Aaron Gordon (knee) is starting for the Nuggets on Monday.

    Advice: He was limited by a knee issue in his last game but it looks like h's good to go. He'll join Facundo Campazzo, P.J. Dozier, Michael Porter Jr. and Nikola Jokic in the starting five. Apr 26, 5:31 pm
  • Ja Morant scores 28 with three triples in win
    Ja Morant dropped 28 points, eight boards, three assists, two steals and three triples in a 120-113 win vs. Portland on Sunday.

    Advice: The Blazers clearly went too crazy at Sunday morning brunch and came out looking sluggish, shooting 29.4% from the field in the first half. Ja Morant was just toying with them with a flurry of ball fakes and step backs, and while this was a far cry from his two 30+ point games in his last three, the efficiency is a breath of fresh air. He looks poised for a strong finish after a rather slow start to season with a handful of missed games, so keep him active for the Grizzlies’ last 13 games. Apr 25, 4:24 pm
  • Jonas Valanciunas returns, hits three triples
    Jonas Valanciunas returned from a three-game absence and dominated, notching a 21-point, 10-rebound double-double to go along with two assists and two steals in 30 minutes of action. 

    Advice: The three triples tie his career high and he didn’t skip a beat after missing three games due to concussion protocol. He scored 13 points in the second quarter alone and did a good job of slightly slowing down Jusuf Nurkic. He’s had a more impressive season than anyone could have hoped for, and there’s no reason he shouldn’t go off for this Grizzlies team moving forward. Hopefully he was in your lineup today, and make sure he’s in there going forward. Apr 25, 4:22 pm
  • Jonas Valanciunas (concussion) available Sunday
    Jonas Valanciunas (concussion) is available to play vs. the Blazers on Sunday.

    Advice: Xavier Tillman should move to the Grizzlies' bench as a result of JV's return from a three-game absence. Get Valanciunas back into your active fantasy lineups for what should be a bruising matchup with Jusuf Nurkic. Apr 25, 11:42 am
  • Nikola Jokic extremely efficient in win over HOU
    Nikola Jokic hit 10-of-14 shots for 24 points, eight rebounds, 12 assists, a steal and a block in 29 minutes of Saturday's 129-116 win over the Rockets. 

    Advice: There's not much to say here, as Jokic does this on a nightly basis and looks like the clear front runner for this season's MVP Award. And if you drafted him back in December, you're fantasy team is probably doing very well. Apr 24, 9:54 pm
  • Aaron Gordon (knee) scores seven in 20 minutes
    Aaron Gordon hit 3-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, two rebounds, one assist and a steal in just 20 minutes on Saturday, possibly injuring his knee during the game. 

    Advice: Gordon's knee was being attended to on the bench and we really don't know anymore, other than his low minutes suggest the knee kept him out of most of the second half. JaMychal Green played 21 minutes off the bench and had 10 points and a couple 3-pointers, and Austin Rivers played 29 minutes off the pine. If Gordon's going to miss time, Michael Porter Jr. and Green would both see an uptick in minutes going forward. Apr 24, 9:43 pm
