  • Larry Nance (hip) looks fine in 23 minutes
    Larry Nance (hip) finished a lopsided loss on Wednesday with six points on 3-of-5 shooting, six rebounds, two assists and two steals in 23 minutes.

    Advice: The Lakers were blown out and coach Luke Walton spread minutes across 13 different players, so there's not a lot to learn from this game. Julius Randle was efficient with 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting, but no other Laker scored more than 10 points tonight. Yuck. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:34 pm
  • Kevon Looney scores just two points
    Kevon Looney scored two points with four rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes against the Bulls on Wednesday.

    Advice: He started the second half because of Jordan Bell getting hurt on the first play of the game. Even with Bell likely out of the lineup for at least a few games, Looney just doesn't do enough to warrant a pickup in most leagues. Draymond Green (shoulder) should be back soon, too. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:18 pm
     
  • Jarell Martin drops 17 points on 8-of-15 FGs
    Jarell Martin stepped up on Wednesday with 17 points on 8-of-15 shooting, six boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 31 minutes.

    Advice: Martin even hit a 3-pointer tonight, taking full advantage of added run in the absence of Marc Gasol and Brandan Wright. Both of those veterans are just day-to-day, however, so this doesn't improve Martin's short-term outlook. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:12 pm
  • Kyle O'Quinn plays just 12 minutes vs. MEM
    Kyle O'Quinn had just two points, six boards and one assist in 12 minutes vs. the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: KOQ was coming off a big game on Monday, but his role tends to ebb and flow based upon matchups. It doesn't help that Willy Hernangomez (DNP-CD) could be unleashed at some point, making O'Quinn a luxury in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:07 pm
  • Mike Muscala gets DNP-CD vs. Pelicans
    Mike Muscala picked up a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

    Advice: Muscala missed over a month with a serious ankle injury, but it's unclear why the Hawks continue to list him on the injury report -- he's healthy and cleared to play. As long as Dewayne Dedmon, John Collins and Miles Plumlee are around, though, there's no reason for owners to bother with Muscala. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:28 pm
     
  • Plumlee starting at the four
    Mason Plumlee will start against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Will Barton is sliding over to the point with Jamal Murray not playing tonight. Plumlee has lost a lot of his momentum and getting the start tonight doesn't really change his outlook once Murray can return. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:19 pm
  • Willie Reed starting again
    Willie Reed will start again for Wednesday against the Nuggets.

    Advice: No changes here with Milos Teodosic, Lou Williams, Tyrone Wallace and Blake Griffin starting. Montrezl Harrell has outplayed Reed, so he's probably the better option here. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:17 pm
     
  • Markieff Morris quiet in 15 minutes Wednesday
    Markieff Morris (ankle) had two points, five rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: Morris didn't practice on Tuesday and reportedly had both of his ankles iced after Monday's game, but it sounds like the typical bumps and bruises of an NBA season. He committed four fouls during his limited time on the court, but the Wizards also rested starters at the end of a blowout tonight. Expect better vs. Detroit on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:51 pm
  • Brandan Wright will not play due to illness
    Brandan Wright (illness) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been out of the rotation anyway, so the Grizzlies won't miss him too much. Although, not having Marc Gasol (illness) means Deyonta Davis should have some extended run heading his way tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:23 pm
  • Mike Muscala is available
    Mike Muscala (ankle) is available for Wednesday against the Pelicans.

    Advice: He has seen some playing time lately, but he played just three minutes on Monday. Muscala won't have much value while the Hawks are healthy up front. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:19 pm
     
  • Markieff Morris (ankle) will start Wednesday
    Markieff Morris (ankle) will start Wednesday vs. Charlotte.

    Advice: Morris did not practice on Tuesday after rolling his ankle in Monday's loss to Milwaukee, but the ankle issue won't be anything that forces him to miss any game-time action. Joining Morris in the starting five will be John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter and Marcin Gortat. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:11 pm
  • Mason Plumlee (core) is available
    Mason Plumlee (core) is available to play against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The team is calling it a lateral trunk strain and it would appear he'll be out there in a back-to-back set. Plumlee did not play next to Nikola Jokic on Tuesday, and that will probably continue tonight. He's not a great fantasy asset these days. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:05 pm
  • Skal Labissiere (shoulder) ruled out vs. Utah
    Skal Labissiere (shoulder) has been ruled out for Wednesday against the Jazz.

    Advice: Just when it looked like Labissiere was going to get minutes on a regular basis, he has to sit out as the Kings turn to their youth. Coach Dave Joerger said he's expected to rest 2-3 veterans per game, but maybe this time Zach Randolph and Kosta Koufos suit up. On the other hand, the Kings could turn to Georgios Papagiannis or run more small-ball lineups, but either way Z-Bo and Koufos can't be trusted. Willie Cauley-Stein is really the only reliable Kings big these days. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:04 pm
  • Mason Plumlee (core strain) probable vs. LAC
    Mason Plumlee (core strain) is probable to play Wednesday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Plumlee will likely be dealing with this core strain for the remainder of the season, but it shouldn't cost him any game-time action. He's not worth owning anywhere. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:46 am
  • Larry Nance (hip) probable for Wednesday
    Larry Nance (right hip pointer) is probable to play Wednesday vs. Oklahoma City.

    Advice: Nance tweaked his hip on Monday but was able to play through it, and it sounds like that's what he'll be doing tonight. Check back for official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:54 am
  • Richaun Holmes (illness) out Thursday vs. BOS
    Richaun Holmes (gastroenteritis) will not suit up for Thursday's game in Boston.

    Advice: This will be Holmes second straight game on the sidelines due to the stomach bug, which will translate to more minutes for Trevor Booker and Amir Johnson. Holmes is only worth owning in deep leagues as a Joel Embiid-handcuff. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:42 am
    Out
     
  • Dakari Johnson recalled from the G-League
    Dakari Johnson has been recalled from the G-League.

    Advice: He only plays if the game is a blowout. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:56 am
  • Mason Plumlee plays 14 minutes off bench
    Mason Plumlee moved to the bench on Tuesday vs. Dallas, playing 14 minutes with five points and three rebounds.

    Advice: He played exclusively as the backup center and didn't see any minutes next to Jokic. He was a deep-league asset even as a starter, so he belongs on the wire in most leagues even if this was a temporary move. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:08 pm
  • Mason Plumlee will come off the bench
    Mason Plumlee will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. Dallas.

    Advice: He was considered probable to play with a core strain, but the Nuggets will make a lineup switch to counter Dallas small-ball lineup. There's no word on whether or not this will be more than a temporary move, but this matchup is better suited for guys like Wilson Chandler and Trey Lyles. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:55 pm
  • Labissiere (shoulder) questionable Wednesday
    Skal Labissiere is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz with a left shoulder strain.

    Advice: All we have to work with is the injury report, so we don't know any details on the severity or whether or not he practiced on Tuesday. If Labissiere can't go, we should see Zach Randolph play a lot of minutes after he was rested in his last outing. The Kings are trying to get their younger guys more playing time, so keep an eye on the second-year big man. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:40 pm
  • Nerlens Noel still targeting February
    Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said the earliest we'll see Nerlens Noel (finger) is in February.

    Advice: He had his cast removed in early January, but his timetable hasn't really changed. Carlisle said back on Jan. 4 that Noel could be playing by early February, so maybe they showcase him before the Feb. 8 trade deadline. He was out of the rotation before the injury, so a fresh start could really help him. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:52 pm
    Injured
     
  • Mason Plumlee (core strain) probable Tuesday
    Mason Plumlee (core strain) is probable to play Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: He's been playing through the core strain issue for over a month, and it's likely going to be something he just has to deal with for the rest of the season. Plumlee is not a viable fantasy option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:08 pm
  • Dakari Johnson sent down to the G-League
    Dakari Johnson has been assigned to the Thunder's G-League affiliate.

    Advice: No fantasy spin here, as Johnson is irrelevant while Steven Adams is healthy. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:46 pm
  • Larry Nance (hip) questionable for Wednesday
    Larry Nance (right hip pointer) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.

    Advice: Nance played through the hip issue on Monday, but it may have gotten worse overnight. We'll have a better idea on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he does need to hit the sidelines, Kyle Kuzma and Julius Randle would pick up most of his minutes. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:25 pm
  • Markieff Morris (ankle) unable to practice
    Markieff Morris (ankle) did not practice on Tuesday after rolling his ankle in Monday's loss to the Bucks.

    Advice: Morris reportedly had both of his ankles iced up after Monday's contest. For now, we'll consider him questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Charlotte. If Morris is unable to suit up, Mike Scott and Jason Smith would see an uptick in minutes. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:31 am
  • Tarik Black returned to action on Monday January 15. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:30 am
     
  • Amir Johnson returned to action on Monday January 15. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:30 am
     
  • Willie Reed doesn't do much in start
    Willie Reed finished with just two points over 10 minutes in Monday's start against the Rockets.

    Advice: Reed made another start with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) nursing an injury, but it was Montrezl Harrell and Wesley Johnson picking up more of the slack than Reed. He went for 14 points and 13 rebounds last time out to turn the heads of fantasy owners, but this performance is exactly why you need to exercise extreme caution outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:17 pm
     
  • Skal Labissiere scores seven points in start
    Skal Labissiere started on Monday vs. the Thunder and scored seven points with seven rebounds, one assist and one steal in 28 minutes.

    Advice: He was 3-of-10 from the field and didn't score or grab a board in the second half, but the biggest takeaway is that he's about to be unleashed -- Zach Randolph was a DNP-CD and coach Dave Joerger said he's going to rest two veterans in every game going forward. His stash appeal is growing despite tonight's quiet fantasy line. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:10 pm
  • Tarik Black (right eye abrasion) will play
    Tarik Black (right eye abrasion) will play on Monday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: He's available for Houston again after a one-game absence. Nene (right knee contusion) isn't active, so Black could see a handful of center minutes behind Clint Capela. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:04 pm
     
  • Jarell Martin scores 10 points in win
    Jarell Martin hit 4-of-5 shots for 10 points and three rebounds in 21 minutes off the Grizzlies bench on Monday.

    Advice: Martin didn't score in his last game, but has been playing fairly well since just before Christmas. But he really doesn't offer much outside of some low scoring, making him tough to use, even in the deepest of leagues. He just saw his shot get hot tonight. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:43 pm
  • Larry Nance double-doubles in loss
    Larry Nance played through a hip injury suffered on Monday and double-doubled with 15 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and three blocks in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He hit 6-of-9 shots and owners might want to monitor him going forward, as he was in a lot of pain after banging hips with Deyonte Davis and was wearing a huge contraption around his waist when he wasn't playing in order to ease the pain. He's double-doubled in two of his last three games and left early with a cut above his eye on Saturday. He's banged up, but playing well when the minutes are there. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:22 pm
  • Larry Nance Jr. (back) available to return
    Larry Nance Jr. hurt his back during Monday's game against the Grizzlies, but he's available to return.

    Advice: He got bumped on a drive to the hoop, hit one of two of his freebies and then limped his way back to the locker room. We'll provide another update after the game, but it doesn't seem like he's dealing with anything serious. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:43 pm
  • Kyle O'Quinn sharp in 23 minutes off bench
    Kyle O'Quinn was effective in Monday's 119-104 win at Brooklyn, going for 11 points with seven rebounds, three assist sand two blocked shots over 23 minutes.

    Advice: O'Quinn was a perfect 4-of-4 from the field, as he had the hot hand to eat into the minutes of Enes Kanter. In fact, O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez were a perfect 5-of-5 from the floor, keeping Kanter nailed to the bench for a good chunk of the game. Both centers have drawn trade inquires recently, and they certainly improved their stock with solid showings. New York has a logjam at the position, so someone might be on their way out of town soon. A new situation might mean new fantasy appeal, so we'll watch this situation closely. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:13 pm
  • Markieff Morris held to six points in 24 mins
    Markieff Morris was held to just six points on 3-of-6 shooting Monday, to go with six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Morris had a couple nice games to bring in the New Year, but he's gone back to garbage-mode over the past four with meager averages of 8.3 points, 4.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.3 triples and 1.8 turnovers per game on 54.2% shooting in 28.1 minutes a night. Basically, when Kelly Oubre is playing well, Morris' minutes suffer, and that's likely to remain a trend for the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:24 pm
  • Richaun Holmes (illness) ruled out Monday
    Richaun Holmes will not play on Monday vs. the Raptors due to an illness.

    Advice: Amir Johnson missed Philly's last game with an illness, but he's currently questionable. If Johnson is unable to back up Joel Embiid, Trevor Booker and Dario Saric might see some time at the five. Holmes hasn't been playing much lately and is just a handcuff for Embiid's owners. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:03 am
    Out
     
  • Thunder recall Dakari Johnson
    The Thunder have recalled Dakari Johnson from the G-League.

    Advice: He was with the OKC Blue for the G-League showcase. Johnson has only played 10 minutes for the Thunder since the start of January because Steven Adams is the only true center in their rotation right now. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:01 am
  • Willie Reed double-doubles in 26 minutes
    Willie Reed was solid in a spot-start for DeAndre Jordan (ankle) on Saturday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-6 shooting to go with 13 boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 26 minutes.

    Advice: As we saw last season in Miami when Hassan Whiteside was forced to the sidelines for a brief period, Reed is capable of consistently bringing this sort of effort when given the minutes, so he could be someone to consider as a speculative add in deep leagues if you've got someone to cut. Just know that he'll return to being a negligible fantasy option once Jordan returns to the court, so we wouldn't advise cutting anyone with long-term appeal. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:49 pm
     
  • Skal Labissiere scores 14 points in 22 mins
    Skal Labissiere went 5-of-8 from the field and 2-of-4 from the stripe on his way to 14 points in 22 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 126-105 loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: Labissiere also chipped in seven rebounds, two 3-pointers, one assist, one steal and one block in what was one of his better performances of the year. Unfortunately for him, the big man rotation in Sacramento has been an absolute disaster this season, so it'll be tough for him to carve out much value when his minutes are in the low-20s. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:29 pm
  • Larry Nance exits game cut above left eye
    Larry Nance exited Saturday's game with a cut above his left eye and did not return, finishing with two points and seven boards in 19 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: The extent of Nance's injury is currently unclear at this point, but he'll likely be evaluated for a concussion, and there's a chance he could sit out Monday's game in Memphis. If he does indeed hit the sidelines on Monday, that would open up minutes for Julius Randle and Kyle Kuzma. Check back for another update following Monday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:45 pm
  • Willie Reed to start at center on Saturday
    Willie Reed will replace DeAndre Jordan (ankle) in the starting lineup Saturday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Reed had four points and three rebounds in 10 minutes off the bench Thursday vs. the Warriors. Thus, despite drawing the start, Reed is a would be a risky DFS or streaming option, as Montrezl Harrell tallied 25 points (on 11-of-12 shooting), six rebounds and a steal in 27 minutes on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:03 am
     
  • Tarik Black (eye) to be a GTD Monday
    Coach Mike D'Antoni said Tarik Black (right eye abrasion) will be a game-time decision for Monday's contest vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Nene (knee) has already been ruled out of Monday's game. If Black is unable to play, the Rockets will again have little depth at center. Clint Capela had a huge game on Friday, finishing with 17 points, 16 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 36 minutes. Capela would again be asked to log heavy minutes on Monday if Black remains sidelined. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:13 am
     
  • Kevin Looney solid in his hometown
    Kevon Looney finished with nine points, eight rebounds, three assists and a blocked shot across 23 minutes Friday in Milwaukee, his hometown.

    Advice: Looney connected on 3-of-3 from the field, and he was 3-of-4 from the free-throw line. He could carry over the momentum into Saturday's game at Toronto and be a nice low-cost DFS option, especially if Kevin Durant (calf) is unavailable in the back-to-back set. Circle back around Saturday for the latest on KD, as Looney could be one of the biggest beneficiaries of his potential absence. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:15 pm
     
  • Thunder assign Dakari Johnson to G-League
    The Thunder have assigned Dakari Johnson to their G-League affiliate.

    Advice: Minimal fantasy impact here, as Johnson is averaging just 2.4 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.5 minutes per game this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:07 am
  • Larry Nance double-doubles off bench
    Larry Nance played 30 minutes and hit 6-of-9 shots, including a highlight-reel dunk, for 14 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block on Thursday.

    Advice: Brook Lopez and Julius Randle never got it going in this one, giving Nance a chance to shine off the pine. He's been playing well, especially in his last three games, and is holding ninth-round fantasy value this season, despite the presence of Randle and Kyle Kuzma, who hit just 3-of-12 shots tonight. Nance is worth owning, but he's not going to be all that reliable on nights when Randle, who failed to score in this one, and Kuzma are doing work. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:14 pm
  • Amir Johnson (illness) ruled out Thursday
    Amir Johnson (illness) will not play on Thursday vs. Boston.

    Advice: This is Philly's only game of the week, so Johnson will now have a few days off to get ready for Monday's game vs. Toronto. Joel Embiid is going to play Thursday, but Richaun Holmes still has some streaming appeal with Johnson ruled out. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:09 am
     
  • Tarik Black (eye) won't play Friday vs. Suns
    Tarik Black (right eye abrasion) will miss Friday's game in Phoenix.

    Advice: Black was wearing thick sunglasses after the game and it's unclear how long he could be out with the injury. Nene (knee) also won't travel for the Rockets' two-game road trip, so we should see plenty of Clint Capela and a variety of small-ball lineups with more Ryan Anderson and P.J. Tucker. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:06 pm
     
  • Tarik Black leaves w/ right eye abrasion
    Tarik Black exited on Wednesday with a right eye abrasion, finishing with 13 points, five rebounds and two steals in 15 minutes.

    Advice: Black was shaken up on the play and could be put into the league's concussion protocol, but the initial diagnosis of an abrasion is encouraging. If Black and Nene (knee) are forced to miss games, Houston will really need Clint Capela to stay out of foul trouble. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:06 pm
     
  • Amir Johnson (illness) skips practice Weds
    Amir Johnson (illness) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: We'll go ahead and throw Johnson on the injury report for Thursday's game in London against the Celtics, but with Joel Embiid healthy, Johnson's playing status doesn't matter much. If he's out, Richaun Holmes could pick up a few extra minutes in the rotation, but that's about it. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:51 am
     
  • Mike Muscala (ankle) probable for Wednesday
    Mike Muscala (ankle) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. Denver.

    Advice: Muscala has been listed a probable in each of the Hawks last three games and has played in each contest. However, he has very minimal fantasy value, as he's averaging just 4.7 points and 3.3 rebounds in 8.3 minutes over those three games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:33 pm
     
  • O'Quinn and Hernangomez receiving interest
    Teams have contacted the Knicks about potentially trading for Kyle O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez, according to the New York Post.

    Advice: According to the Post report, "the Knicks have received more inquiries about Hernangomez than anyone else on their roster" and "a couple of playoff-bound teams have asked about O’Quinn as a rental." The Knicks have a logjam at center, which is why New York is motivated to deal one of their four centers. This will be a situation to keep an eye on as we move closer to the February trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:42 am
  • Labissiere plays 22 minutes off the bench
    Skal Labissiere returned to the bench on Monday vs. the Spurs, scoring six points with eight rebounds, two assists and one steal in 22 minutes.

    Advice: Zach Randolph was back with the starters after a one-game absence. The Kings have been featuring Z-Bo on offense all season even though this year is supposed to be about player development, so hopefully they give Labissiere more run sooner rather than later. He's just a stash until that happens. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:25 pm
  • Tarik Black logs 11 minutes vs. Chicago
    Tarik Black played 11 minutes on Monday, finishing with one point, one rebound, one steal and one block in a win vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Nene (bruised knee) was out again tonight, but Tarik couldn't duplicate his pristine line from Saturday -- 13 points on 6-of-6 shooting, with six rebounds and one block. As long as Clint Capela is healthy, there's no reason to touch Black in any league. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:46 pm
     
  • Mike Muscala (ankle) probable for Monday
    Mike Muscala (ankle) is probable to play Monday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Muscala will likely be given the probable tag for the next month because that's just what Atlanta does. He's not worth owning anywhere. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 12:43 pm
     
  • Larry Nance hits 6-of-6 FGs for 13 points
    Larry Nance (illness) finished Sunday's game with 13 points on 6-of-6 shooting, adding eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Nance didn't miss any games despite battling 'flu-like symptoms' the past few days. L.A. recently waived Andrew Bogut to avoid guaranteeing his contract for the rest of the season, but Nance's playing time is still unlikely to climb while Julius Randle, Brook Lopez and Kyle Kuzma are clogging up frontcourt minutes. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 10:29 pm
  • Kyle O'Quinn racks up 15 & 11 w/ full line
    Kyle O'Quinn scored 15 points with 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in just 23 minutes on Sunday.

    Advice: The veteran made 6-of-7 shots, with all but one of his shots coming inside the paint -- he knows how to play to his strengths. Despite playing only 17.0 minutes over the past month, he's carved out standard-league roto value as a source of rebounds (5.2), blocks (1.1) and FG percentages (63.6% on 5.1 attempts). Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 7:25 pm
  • Larry Nance Jr. (illness) will play on Sunday
    Larry Nance Jr. (flu-like symptoms) will play vs. the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: There's not a lot of upside for Nance with Julius Randle and Brook Lopez both healthy, but at least he won't miss any games with his recent illness. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 4:51 pm
  • Mason Plumlee swats three shots in road loss
    Mason Plumlee finished with nine points, eight rebounds and three blocked shots over 17 minutes in Saturday's 106-98 loss at Sacramento.

    Advice: Plumlee was 3-of-5 from the field and on his way to a big stat line, but foul trouble limited his playing time. He is averaging 8.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assist and 3.0 blocked shots per game over his past three outings in the month of January. He isn't a great fantasy option in most leagues, but he isn't a bad big man in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 9:58 pm
  • Skal Labissiere goes for a dozen in win
    Skal Labissiere finished with 12 points, four rebounds and three blocked shots across 16 minutes in Saturday's 106-98 win against the Nuggets.

    Advice: Labissiere was humming right along, especially on the defensive end, and he posted a plus-15 rating. He had no personal fouls, so his minutes were held down because of head coach Dave Joerger. The coach used a nine-player rotation, and three bench players had more minutes than three starters. It's always a hard situation to figure for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 9:37 pm
