  • Luka Samanic won't play on Saturday (sore throat)
    Luka Samanic won't play on Saturday against the Rockets due to a sore throat.

    Advice: Samanic has played just eight minutes this season. His absence won't change anything in terms of fantasy sports.  Rotoworld.com 19 minutes ago
  • Cam Reddish (knee contusion) questionable Saturday
    Cam Reddish is questionable to play on Saturday against the Portland Trail Blazers due to a left knee contusion.

    Advice: With Bogan Bogdanovic and Danil Gallinari sidelined, the Hawks could really use Reddish on Saturday. If he can't give it a go, expect big minutes from Kevin Huerter, who ranks No. 122 in 9-cat leagues, and De'Andre Hunter. Brandon Goodwin should see some additional time, too. Rotoworld.com 24 minutes ago
  • Hou. starters: Jones, McLemore, Tate, Tucker, Wood
    The Rockets are starting Mason Jones, Ben McLemore, Jae'Sean Tate, P.J. Tucker and Christian Wood on Saturday against the Spurs.

    Advice: The Rockets had so many players either tied up in a pending trade or injured that Saturday's game was in question until a trade was completed to make former Nets forward Rodions Kurucs available for Houston. Sterling Brown, who was a game-time decision due to a lower leg injury, is officially out, meaning Houston has exactly the required eight players to play. Jones might be a good DFS play, but he's a rookie who's played just 36 career minutes, totalling 19 points, eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and four turnovers across four games. Look for Tate, Tucker, McLemore and Wood to jack up shots in what could be a clunky Rockets game. Rotoworld.com 54 minutes ago
  • Nerlens Noel (lower back) probable Sunday vs C's
    Nerlens Noel (lower back soreness) is probable for Sunday's contest vs the Celtics.

    Advice: Noel had a season-high six blocks in 17 minutes on Friday against the Cavs so the Knicks are surely hoping their backup center will be good to go on Sunday. We wouldn't recommend Noel as a reliable pickup, but if you're in need of blocks and a field goal percentage boost, take a chance on him. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:27 am
     
  • Alec Burks (left ankle) doubtful vs Knicks Sunday
    Alec Burks (left ankle) is considered doubtful to play vs the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: The Knicks have a back-to-back set starting with the Celtics tomorrow and the Magic on Monday. Burks could return against Orlando on MLK Day, but Tom Thibodeau might end up playing it safe as his team will have two days off after another B2B set on Thursday and Friday which would allow Burks a couple more days to get back into game shape. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:21 am
    INJ
     
  • Jalen Brunson (COVID-protocol) questionable Sun.
    Jalen Brunson (COVID-protocol) has been upgraded to questionable for Sunday's game against the Bulls.

    Advice: Brunson has missed the last few games adhering to the NBA's health and safety protocols but could now return on Sunday. He might be a bit sluggish after not playing for over a week, but if Tim Hardaway Jr. (groin) can't go, Brunson could play some more minutes for a Dallas team that has multiple players already sidelined. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:07 am
    INJ
     
  • Evan Fournier (back spasms) out Saturday vs Nets
    Evan Fournier will miss his eighth straight game after being ruled out on Saturday vs Brooklyn.

    Advice: Fournier continues to deal with lower back spasms that are very concerning considering he hasn't played yet this month. Rookie Cole Anthony is the best option here if you're looking for a streamer because James Ennis and Terrence haven't done much as of late. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:03 am
  • Sindarius Thornwell falls out of Pelicans rotation
    Sindarius Thornwell dropped out of New Orleans' rotation on Friday.

    Advice: Thornwell got a spot start on Wednesday, but he was scoreless with one rebound and one steal in 19 minutes. Evidently that did not compel coach Stan Van Gundy to play him more. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:59 pm
  • Wesley Matthews (Achilles) scoreless in 14 minutes
    Wesley Matthews (Achilles soreness) returned to action vs. the Pelicans on Friday, going scoreless with one assist in 14 minutes.

    Advice: The veteran has missed three straight games with soreness in his right Achilles, which is not the same Achilles tendon that was surgically repaired back in 2015. He's healthy but at this stage of his career Matthews offers no fantasy value beyond a handful of triples. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Marc Gasol logs 20 minutes in home win Friday
    Marc Gasol chipped in five points, two rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes during L.A.'s win vs. New Orleans on Friday.

    Advice: Gasol has one double-digit scoring game on the season, and scoring simply isn't his role on this Lakers team. He's a savvy facilitator who puts pressure on the paint, and defensively he's protecting the rim admirably well with 1.9 blocks per game in January. Points-league managers may not have use for Gasol, but in 8-cat and 9-cat his blocks alone are incentive to roster him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:55 pm
  • Marcus Morris scores season-high 18 points
    Marcus Morris scored a season-high 18 points vs. the Kings on Friday with four triples, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes. 

    Advice: His minutes are slowly ramping up after missing the start of the season with knee soreness. Morris had a bump in touches tonight with no Lou Williams (hip) or Patrick Beverley (personal), and the Kings decided to take the night off defensively. Morris still has some work to do to be a standard-league pickup, especially since Nicolas Batum has been better than they were anticipating.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:28 pm
  • Cam Reddish scores 20 points on 8-of-13 FGs
    Cam Reddish was one of the few bright spots for Atlanta in their blowout loss to the Jazz, knocking down 8-of-13 shots on his way to 20 points, five rebounds, four triples and one steal in 28 minutes. 

    Advice: Cam had a brutal stretch in early January, but has started to turn things around to look like the breakout player many were expecting. Over his last three games, he's putting up top-70 numbers in 9-cat with 17.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 3.0 triples on 44% from the field. He's rostered in 54% of Yahoo Leagues but that number should shoot up soon as the Hawks continue to rely on him with Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) sidelined.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:36 pm
  • Denzel Valentine gets +14 rating in overtime loss
    Denzel Valentine only scored four points in 15 minutes on Friday, but he added four rebounds, three assists and a pair of steals in a tough loss vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: That's four straight losses for Chicago, whose defense has been shredded nightly. Valentine committed two of his team's 24 turnovers, and he shot 2-of-7 from the field, but generally he was solid and finished with a team-high plus/minus rating of +14. He's flashed some fantasy potential for steals and 3-pointers, but needs more than 15-20 minutes per game to achieve it. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:32 pm
  • Onyeka Okongwu plays 14 minutes in debut
    Onyeka Okongwu (left foot inflammation) made his season debut vs. the Jazz on Friday, shooting 2-of-6 from the field for four points, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 14 minutes. 

    Advice: He's got a ton of long-term upside but minutes are going to be hard to come by with Clint Capela around and John Collins getting a handful of minutes as a small-ball five. The 6-foot-9, 245-pound Okongwu averaged 16.2 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.7 blocks per game in college, so if Capela needs to miss time or if Collins gets traded, fantasy managers will know what to do here.  Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:31 pm
  • Garrett Temple plays 20 minutes off bench Friday
    Garrett Temple played through a right ankle injury on Friday, finishing with eight points, three rebounds and two assists in 20 minutes off Chicago's bench.

    Advice: The veteran was a true game-time decision, but he suited up and was part of coach Billy Donovan's nine-man rotation tonight. He played well and fills a versatile 3-and-D role for the Bulls, but with 13.0% usage he's tough to roster in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:31 pm
  • Ryan Arcidiacono gets healthy DNP-CD on Friday
    Ryan Arcidiacono was a healthy DNP-CD vs. the Thunder on Friday. 

    Advice: Arcidiacono was inactive for nine consecutive games, seven of which were due to COVID-19 exposure. It's great to see him healthy, but his fantasy value is nil as long as Coby White is healthy and playing massive minutes as Chicago's starting point guard. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:29 pm
  • Wesley Matthews (right Achilles) playing Friday
    Wesley Matthews (right Achilles soreness) will play vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

    Advice: He should slot into his usual 20-minute role for the Lakers, but doesn't do nearly enough to entice most fantasy managers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:12 pm
  • Garrett Temple (ankle) is active for Friday
    Garrett Temple (ankle) is active for Friday vs. the Thunder. 

    Advice: The Bulls haven't said if he's "available," and Temple said this afternoon that he wasn't sure if he was healthy enough to play. Temple has been sneaky good for the last four games for Chicago, but they finally have some reinforcements back tonight. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:04 pm
  • Alec Burks (left ankle) out Friday vs Cavs
    Alec Burks (left ankle) has been ruled out on Friday vs the Cavs.

    Advice: Tom Thibodeau says Burks is "day-to-day" and adds that, "He's coming along very well. He's getting closer and closer. We've got to re-condition him. He's doing quite a bit in practice right now." Burks hasn't played since Dec. 27 and prior to that, he was averaging 20.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists in three games for the Knicks. Rookie Immanuel Quickley is a solid streaming option, as he's coming off a 19-point, three-assist game against the Nets on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:35 pm
    INJ
     
  • Evan Fournier (back spasms) remains out on Friday
    Evan Fournier will miss Friday's game against the Celtics with back spasms that have now held him out of seven straight contests.

    Advice: Fournier remains sidelined due to lower back spasms that him kept him off the court since Dec. 31, 2020. But the Magic are surprisingly 4-0 since then. Dwayne Bacon, James Ennis and Terrence Ross will continue to play big minutes in the mean time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:50 pm
  • Wesley Matthews (Achilles) is questionable
    Wesley Matthews (Achilles soreness) is questionable for Friday vs. the Pelicans. 

    Advice: He's progressing and could return from a 3-game absence. Matthews is not on the fantasy radar, averaging 6.1 points, 1.4 rebounds, 1.1 dimes and 1.6 triples in 22 minutes.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:34 pm
  • Onyeka Okongwu (foot) will make his debut Friday
    Onyeka Okongwu will make his Hawks debut on Friday against the Jazz.

    Advice: Okongwu missed the start of the season with foot inflammation, but will play on Friday. With Danilo Gallinari out, Okongwu could see good minutes, but it's too early to tell his place in the rotation. It's OK to leave him on the waiver wire to start.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:08 pm
  • Garrett Temple (ankle) questionable for Friday
    Garrett Temple is questionable for Friday against the Thunder due to a right ankle injury. 

    Advice: When Temple gets hot he can do some damage for the Bulls but with Lauri Markkanen and Otto Porter Jr. both on their way back, we don't have much faith in Temple right now, even when healthy.   Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:54 pm
  • Evan Fournier (back) out on Friday
    Evan Fournier won't play on Friday against the Celtics due to back spasms. 

    Advice: Fournier hasn't played a game since New Year's Eve, recovering slowly from the injury. For as long as he sits, Terrence Ross, James Ennis and Dwayne Bacon should see an uptick in minutes, and in responsibility in the offense. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:38 pm
  • Alec Burks (ankle) listed as doubtful for Friday
    Alec Burks (left ankle sprain) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game against the Cavaliers. 

    Advice: Burks has been sidelined since late-December, and it appears likely that he will miss at least one more game. His absence means that RJ Barrett and Austin Rivers will continue to log heavy minutes on the perimeter, with rookie Immanuel Quickley secure in his role as Elfrid Payton's backup. Rivers is a better choice than Barrett for fantasy managers in need of a perimeter contributor.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:15 am
    INJ
     
  • Wesley Matthews (Achilles) out Wednesday vs. OKC
    Wesley Matthews (Achilles soreness) won't play on Wednesday against the Thunder.

    Advice: This will be Matthews' third consecutive missed game due to the injury. Expect Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Alex Causo and Talen Hornton-Tucker to receive additional opportunities in his absence.  Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:03 am
  • Onyeka Okongwu (foot) probable to play Wednesday
    Onyeka Okongwu (left foot inflammation) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Suns. 

    Advice: Okongwu's grassroots coach tweeted earlier Tuesday that the lottery pick would be making his NBA debut Wednesday night, but he is officially listed as probable. With Danilo Gallinari sidelined there may be a few minutes available for Okongwu, but don't expect the Hawks to give him a full workload just yet. Leave him on the waiver wire for the time being.  Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:50 pm
  • Cam Reddish posts 10 points & five boards in start
    Cam Reddish started for the Hawks on Monday, posting 10 points, five rebounds, a steal and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Reddish moved into the starting unit with Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) sidelined and it's likely he will remain until either Bogy or Danilo Gallinari returns. He didn't shoot the ball a ton, going 3-of-8 and 1-of-4 from beyond the arc. But the Hawks were up by 25-plus and Lloyd Pierce emptied the bench in the second half. Reddish holds some value in standard and deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:36 pm
  • Wes Matthews (Achilles) won't play on Tuesday
    Wes Matthews won't play on Tuesday against the Rockets.

    Advice: Matthews sat out Sunday's game, and now he'll miss another. Without him, expect Alex Caruso and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to step into a slightly larger role.  Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:49 pm
  • Jalen Brunson (COVID-protocol) out another 3 games
    Jalen Brunson (COVID-protocol) not expected to be cleared until Sunday, at the earliest.

    Advice: The Mavs Monday game has already been postponed, and they may need to postpone more if they're not able to field enough players, but Brunson is going to be required to quarantine for a week — meaning the earliest he could be cleared would be Sunday vs. the Bulls.  Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:56 pm
    INJ
     
  • Cam Reddish starting for Hawks on Monday
    Cam Reddish is starting for the Hawks on Monday with Bogdan Bogdanovic (knee) out indefinitely. 

    Advice: He led the team in scoring with 21 points off the bench in his previous game and should be the starter going forward. And he's now basically a must-start player in fantasy with Bogdanovic and Danilo Gallinari on the shelf.  Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:47 pm
  • Evan Fournier (back spasms) "unlikely" to play Wed
    Evan Fournier (back spasms) is "unlikely" to play Wednesday vs. Boston, according to coach Steve Clifford.

    Advice: Fournier's recovery has gone "relatively slowly," according to Clifford. He added that Fournier could return to action Friday, Saturday, or even Monday, Jan. 18. Until he's ready to play, James Ennis and Dwayne Bacon will continue to play extra minutes while Terrence Ross does heavy lifting off the bench. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:36 pm
  • Evan Fournier (back) will not play Monday
    Evan Fournier (back spasms) will not play on Monday vs. the Bucks. 

    Advice: Yikes. This will be his sixth straight game on the shelf but the Magic continue to list him as day-to-day. James Ennis has been getting the starts in Fournier's place but is putting up a bunch of Tony Snell lines. Fantasy managers looking for a streamer should avoid Orlando if possible.  Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:04 am
  • Garrett Temple starts, gets 18 & 6 in 36 minutes
    Garrett Temple logged 36 minutes vs. the Clippers on Sunday, recording multiple season highs with 18 points and six boards in a 130-127 road loss.

    Advice: Temple shot 7-of-8 from the field with three 3-pointers, while adding two steals and an assist. His minutes were elevated tonight due to a raft of absences for the Bulls -- Otto Porter (back), Lauri Markkanen, Chandler Hutchison, Tomas Satoransky and Ryan Arcidiacono. Temple can play multiple positions and he gives Chicago some welcome two-way utility, but we're not about to chase this performance for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:33 pm
  • Wesley Matthews (right Achilles) out Sunday
    Wesley Matthews (right Achilles soreness) will not play Sunday.

    Advice: The good news is that Matthews' left Achilles that has been surgically repaired, so at least it's not the same tendon. Nothing suggests this is a serious ailment, and it's likely just a maintenance day now that Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (ankle) is returning to the lineup.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:26 pm
  • Evan Fournier (back spasms) questionable Monday
    Evan Fournier (back spasms) is listed as questionable for Monday's contest against the Bucks.

    Advice: After sitting out on Saturday night, Fournier has now missed five consecutive games for Orlando as he deals with back spasms. James Ennis has been starting in Fournier's place, though he hasn't done much with the opportunity. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:54 pm
  • Garrett Temple starting Sunday w/ Otto Porter out
    Garrett Temple will join the starting unit on Sunday for the Bulls with Otto Porter Jr. sidelined due to back spasms.

    Advice: OPJ had been starting for Lauri Markkanen (health and safety protocols) and Temple will now make his first start of the season with Porter unavailable to play. He might be worth streaming, although the matchup against the Clippers is a tough one. Tread with caution. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:23 pm
  • Onyeka Okongwu (foot) could return within a week
    Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce said on Sunday that Onyeka Okongwu (left foot inflammation) could be available to play within the next week or so, though he will not play on Monday.

    Advice: Okongwu, who was Atlanta's first-round pick in the draft, has yet to appear in a game due to his foot injury. While both he and Tony Snell (right foot) have made steady progress in their respective recoveries, neither is ready for game action just yet. Given the amount of time that he's missed, Okongwu is highly unlikely to be an impact fantasy option once cleared to play in games.  Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:33 am
  • Cam Reddish scores team-high 21 in loss
    Cam Reddish played 34 minutes off the bench in Saturday’s loss to the Hornets, posting a line of 21 points (6-of-17 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), five rebounds, one assist, four steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: Reddish was replaced in the starting lineup by Bogdan Bogdanovic, but that could be a one-game deal as Bogdanovic left Saturday’s game in the second quarter with a right knee injury. The second-year guard entered the game in a shooting slump, and his percentages weren’t great, but to Reddish’s credit he’s continued to fire away. He’s a must-play right now, especially if Bogdanovic has to miss an extended period of time due to the injury. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:58 pm
  • Evan Fournier (back spasms) questionable Saturday
    Evan Fournier (back spasms) is listed as questionable for the Magic's meeting with the Mavs on Saturday, per the Orlando Sentinel's Roy Parry.

    Advice: Fournier will likely be a game-time decision for the Magic today as he hopes to avoid missing his fifth game in a row with back spasms. Orlando is 2-2 without him but could use him after losing Markelle Fultz (ACL) for the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:45 am
  • Wesley Matthews gets fill-in start on Friday
    Wesley Matthews drew a start on Friday vs. the Bulls and fared well, scoring 14 points (4-of-8 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs) with two rebounds, one assist, one block and four triples in 34 minutes. 

    Advice: Don't chase this line, as Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (ankle) is expected back next game in addition to Anthony Davis (adductor). Matthews was only getting 20 minutes per night before this for 5.2 points. Plus, it's a matter of time before Talen Horton-Tucker gets more involved.  Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:43 pm
  • Nerlens Noel goes scoreless in 11 bench minutes
    Nerlens Noel (left ankle sprain, left knee soreness) returned to action vs. the Thunder on Friday, going scoreless with one rebound, one steal and two blocks in 11 minutes.

    Advice: If Noel had ambitions of beating his former OKC team, he came up well short in a 101-89 home loss. He recently shot down rumors that he was dissatisfied in New York, writing on Twitter, "People sit on twitter making things up and talking noise. Trust me, I love being a Knick and am excited about what we are building here." Regardless of his satisfaction level, he's a fringe fantasy play for defensive stats while Mitchell Robinson (six points, five boards, three blocks, two steals) is controlling the center spot. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:22 pm
     
  • Jalen Brunson (protocols) ruled out Saturday
    Jalen Brunson (health and safety protocols) is out for Saturday vs. the Magic. 

    Advice: Josh Richardson  (health and safety protocols) is also out, but the Mavs will be getting Trey Burke back from illness. Burke is worth a look as a streaming option with the Mavs expected to be very thin in the backcourt.  Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:52 pm
    INJ
     
  • Evan Fournier (back spasms) out Friday vs Rockets
    Evan Fournier (back spasms) has been ruled out on Friday vs Rockets.

    Advice: Fournier has yet to play since the calendar hit 2021, but considering he was a game-time decision, he will likely return soon and that could be Saturday when the Magic play the Mavs. Though nothing is certain yet. James Ennis will be starting in Fournier's place Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:03 pm
  • Evan Fournier (back spasms) game-time on Friday
    Evan Fournier (back spasms) is a game-time decision on Friday.

    Advice: Fournier will go through a pregame shooting routine before determining whether he can play, so DFS managers are forewarned. Gary Clark should start and play 30+ minutes if Fournier isn't able to suit up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:33 pm
  • Nerlens Noel (ankle, knee) available Friday vs OKC
    Nerlens Noel (left ankle, left knee) is available vs. the Thunder on Friday.

    Advice: He gets to play the 'revenge narrative' card tonight, though his minutes may not be robust due to the recent injuries and the emergence of Mitchell Robinson as one of coach Tom Thibodeau's high-minute starters.  Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:55 pm
     
  • Onyeka Okongwu (foot) out Saturday vs. Charlotte
    Onyeka Okongwu (left foot inflammation; sesamoid bone) won't play vs. the Hornets on Saturday.

    Advice: Okongwu recently made it through some 3-on-3 work during practice, but he obviously has some work to do in his rehab before getting cleared for game action. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:06 pm
  • Nerlens Noel is now probable for Friday
    Nerlens Noel (left ankle sprain, left knee soreness) is now probable for Friday vs. the Thunder. 

    Advice: Mitchell Robinson is breaking out while Noel has yet to play more than 18 minutes this season. Plus, the Knicks will be getting Taj Gibson on their roster shortly. Noel's fantasy arrow is pointing down.  Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:04 am
     
  • Nerlens Noel (ankle/knee) questionable for Friday
    Nerlens Noel (left ankle sprain, left knee soreness) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Thunder. 

    Advice: Noel has been sidelined since January 2, when he injured his ankle during a win over the Pacers. Getting him back would give New York another body in the post, as Julius Randle has been used at the center position whenever starter Mitchell Robinson has needed a rest. Noel himself won't offer much in the way of fantasy value, but his return would mean fewer opportunities for Randle to take advantage of mismatches.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:57 am
     
  • Evan Fournier (back) questionable to play Friday
    Evan Fournier (back spasms) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Rockets. 

    Advice: Fournier has been out for a week due to the back spasms, which first became an issue on New Year's Eve. Orlando's backcourt has been hit hard by injuries in recent weeks, as Markelle Fultz (knee) is out for the season and Michael Carter-Williams (foot) is also sidelined. If Fournier can't go, Gary Clark stands to get another start with Aaron Gordon shifting to small forward.  Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:49 am
  • Marcus Morris makes season debut on Wednesday
    Marcus Morris (knee) made his season debut on Wednesday and hit 4-of-9 shots and two 3-pointers for 12 points, two rebounds and two assists in 18 minutes. 

    Advice: Morris is back and will now try to play his way into game shape. It might take several weeks for him to get there, but at least he's playing. There's no reason to pick him up just yet, but he's a guy we'd recommend putting on your watch list in case he gets hot soon. Morris told coach Ty Lue after the game that he is fine with coming off the bench given how well Nicolas Batum has played with the starters, further limiting the upside of Morris. But it was a cool move.  Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:32 pm
  • Cam Reddish struggling with shot
    Cam Reddish hit just 3-of-15 shots for eight points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 27 minutes of Wednesday's loss to the Hornets. 

    Advice: The once red-hot Hawks are now the losers of three straight games and Reddish can't seem to throw it into the ocean. He's hit just 11-of-41 shots in January and is averaging just eight points in those games. The Hawks are crazy deep and Reddish is struggling, so if you feel like you need to drop him for a hot free agent, we're not going to argue with you. The Sixers and Pacers play five games next week, and you have to consider Reddish a possible cut candidate if you want to grab someone off the wire.  Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:27 pm
  • Marcus Morris (knee) should play Wednesday
    Marcus Morris is expected to make his season debut on Wednesday after being sidelined with a knee injury to start the season. 

    Advice: We still don't have the starting lineup for the Clippers but the fact that Morris, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George are all expected to play is worthy of some headlines. We wouldn't mess with Morris tonight in fantasy unless he's the only option available. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:43 pm
  • Nerlens Noel (ankle, knee) out on Wednesday
    Nerlens Noel won't play on Wednesday against the Jazz with a sprained left ankle and sore left knee.

    Advice: Noel joins a long list of Knicks who won't be available on Wednesday. He wasn't available in Monday's win over the Hawks either, and head coach Tom Thibodeau opted to run Julius Randle for 43 minutes, and Mitchell Robinson for 28 minutes. He played a tight eight-player lineup with no other true big in the rotation.  Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:33 pm
     
  • Marcus Morris (knee) is questionable Wednesday
    Marcus Morris (right knee soreness) is questionable for Wednesday vs. the Warriors. 

    Advice: This is an upgrade as Morris has usually been listed as "out" on previous reports. If he's cleared to make his season debut, we can expect restrictions after so much time on the shelf. He's just a low-end pickup but will have some solid streamer value when the Clippers rest their studs.  Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:22 pm
  • Alec Burks (ankle sprain) is in a walking boot
    Alec Burks is in a walking boot because of an ankle sprain, and will be re-evaluated in 7-to-10 days.

    Advice: Burks hasn't played a game since December 27, and now he'll miss minimally another week. He'd been off to a strong start for the Knicks, sinking 10 3-pointers in three games, averaging 21 points on 53.1% shooting. Without Burks, New York will continue to roll with heavier minutes for RJ Barrett, Austin Rivers and Reggie Bullock. With the team finding success, it's unclear how Burks' role will change when he returns. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:13 am
