  • Darrell Arthur will be limited rest of season
    Nuggets coach Michael Malone said he will keep an eye on Darrell Arthur's minutes the rest of the season.

    Advice: "Yeah, probably through the rest of the year that’s what we’ll have to do," Malone said. "Even with practices I’m going to have to limit him. The one thing I love about Darrell, he knows one speed and one way to play, and that’s hard." The oft-injured forward is averaging 14.7 minutes per game this season and it doesn't sound like his role will be growing any time soon. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com 29 minutes ago
  • Jabari Parker punished for talking to media
    Jabari Parker was punished on Saturday for violating a team rule that prohibits disclosing locker room discourse to the media.

    Advice: The Bucks held a private team meeting on Friday in which Parker voiced "his frustration with the lack of togetherness," but then he revealed to the media what happened in the locker room which was against team rules. The Bucks have lost five straight games, but his benching during the first quarter on Saturday was likely a one-time thing. Parker is fully expected to return to the starting lineup on Monday vs. Houston. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:06 am
  • Ben Simmons (foot) to have final scan Monday
    Ben Simmons (foot) will have a "final scan" on Monday according to 76ers GM Bryan Colangelo.

    Advice: While an official timetable has not been released, Simmons' return is coming "soon enough" and Chris Haynes of ESPN reported that he's expected to debut shortly after the All-Star break. 76ers coach Brett Brown hinted earlier in the week that he expects to see the No. 1 overall pick at some point this season, so feel free to stash him if you have an available IR spot. Expect the 76ers to monitor his minutes similar to the way they treated Joel Embiid earlier this season. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:48 am

  • Danilo Gallinari returned to action on Saturday January 21. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • Tristan Thompson returned to action on Saturday January 21. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • Myles Turner scores 13 points vs. Gobert
    Myles Turner scored 13 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: That'll definitely work against Rudy Gobert. At just 20 years old, Turner is one of the toughest problems at center for coaches because he stretches the floor to so well and already has a great low-post presence. Plus, he's already an elite shot blocker, ranking fourth in the NBA for blocks with fantastic shot-altering skills. He'll be in the mix as a top-20 selection next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Nikola Jokic scores 19 in just 21 minutes
    Nikola Jokic made 8-of-11 from the field for 19 points during an easy 123-98 win over the Clippers on Saturday, adding 10 rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in just 21 minutes.

    Advice: That's a lot damage in just 21 minutes and it's still an awesome line. The Nuggets crushed this one with a wire-to-wire victory. Jokic's efficiency continues to be the story and it's a big reason why only the Spurs have a better offensive efficiency rating in the last 15 games. We have Karl-Anthony Towns vs. Nikola Jokic Sunday at 7:00 EST, so tell your friends you won't be able to make it to watch the AFC Championship Game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Wilson Chandler scores 18 points in return
    Wilson Chandler scored 18 points with seven rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers and two turnovers in 23 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: Chandler has looked just fine in his role as the backup power forward. Earlier in the year, he was destroying second unit due to Nikola Jokic playing the vast majority of his minutes next to him. Chandler did actually play eight minutes at small forward during this game, which should continue due to Gary Harris (ankle) and Emmanuel Mudiay (back) being out to force Will Barton to play more two. Barton was also very good in this game with 18 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers. The Nuggets offense is legit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Darrell Arthur plays 13 minutes
    Darrell Arthur (knee) played 13 minutes with two rebounds, one steal and one 3-pointer against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: It was a little surprising to see Arthur out there for double-digit minutes. Coach Mike Malone said Arthur will have his minutes managed all season due to his arthritic knees. Even in super deep leagues, he will be way too annoying to own. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari scores 18 in return
    Danilo Gallinari (ankle) returned after a one-game absence against the Clippers on Saturday, scoring 18 points with four rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: The Nuggets are just rolling as an offense and it really hasn't even mattered who starts. Coach Mike Malone seems hellbent on playing Gallinari big minutes and was headed to the upper 30s today because he didn't play in the final nine minutes for garbage time. Gallo is a must-start guy, but the injury risk is real. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Juan Gone: Hernangomez falls out of rotation
    Juan Hernangomez played five minutes with two points and one assist against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He was out of the rotation until garbage time. We'll see Hernangomez again after his 38-minute game on Thursday, but there's no need to hold him in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:41 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic scores 11 points in win
    Nikola Mirotic scored 11 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in Saturday's 102-99 victory over the Kings.

    Advice: It was his best game since returning from illness, but nothing to be too excited about. He can frustrate owners with his volatility. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Marreese Speights scores 18 in start
    Marreese Speights scored 18 points in a start against the Nuggets on Saturday, adding three rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: His 74th start of his career and first since January 2015 did not result in a win despite his strong start. Speights came off the bench to start the second half, so this may have been a matchup move. Speights has been hanging in the mid-rounds these days, but his value will take a hit once Blake Griffin (knee) comes back. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver struggles vs. Bulls
    Anthony Tolliver hit 2-of-7 shots for six points with one rebound and two 3-pointers in Saturday's loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: Tolliver continues to struggle and has now scored fewer than 10 points in four of his last five games, averaging 27.8 minutes, 6.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.2 steals per game during that stretch. With Rudy Gay (Achilles) out, more was expected out of Tolliver, but he has not lived up to the hype and is far from a must-own player at this point. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Clint Capela plays 16 minutes on Saturday
    Clint Capela came off the bench and had five points, four rebounds, two assists and one block in just 16 minutes on Saturday.

    Advice: Capela blew up for 22 points and 12 boards in 21 minutes on Friday, but his minutes cut is understandable in a back-to-back situation with him coming off a broken leg. In any case, Capela's arrow is pointing up, while Montrezl Harrell's is pointing down. As long as Capela doesn't suffer a setback, you have to think he'll be back in the starting unit by the end of the upcoming week, if not much sooner. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell plays 16 minutes in start
    Montrezl Harrell started again on Saturday, but played just 16 minutes and finished with six points and two rebounds.

    Advice: We said in his previous blurb that he'll need to have 20-24 minutes to hold value and those of you who dropped him early when Clint Capela was on the verge of a return should feel better about that decision after this one. There's still a chance Harrell could hold a little value, but he and Capela both got 16 minutes tonight and Capela's run should only increase as he gets healthy from a broken leg. Harrell is likely to end up on waivers in a ton of leagues if he continues to see his minutes drop, while a move to the bench is likely coming as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Kevin Love makes just 4-of-15
    Kevin Love (back) returned to action on Saturday, making 4-of-15 from the field for 13 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

    Advice: On the final play of overtime, Love had a wide open look for a potential trey to send it to double-overtime. His shot was off, but there was no indication of Love's back injury affecting him. He should be fine going forward, but his fantasy owners will have to keep an eye out on back-to-back sets. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:41 pm
  • Kyle O'Quinn plays just 5 minutes off bench
    Kyle O'Quinn played just five minutes off the bench on Saturday, finishing with zero points and one rebound.

    Advice: KOQ has been all over the place lately and had 14 points and eight boards in a start on Thursday. But with Joakim Noah back in action, O'Quinn barely got off the bench tonight. He's averaging a grand total of just 5.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 0.8 blocks in 12.6 minutes per game over his last five. If you picked him up after back-to-back double-doubles on Jan. 11 and 12, you've probably already dropped him, as that hot run appears to have been a fluke. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:11 pm
  • Cody Zeller scores 12 in 31 minutes
    Cody Zeller scored 12 points with nine rebounds, three assists and one block in 31 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.

    Advice: This resembles the Zeller we should get going forward over the one that saw just 24.0 minutes per game in the previous two. Zeller has been a top-100 player in his last 10 games, which is probably around where he'll be the rest of the way with a little mid-round upside when he's in a groove. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:14 pm
  • Jabari Parker plays 31 minutes off the bench
    Jabari Parker came off the bench for violating team rules and scored 16 points with seven rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes of Saturday's 109-97 loss to the Heat.

    Advice: Parker played well despite the benching and the fact he got 31 minutes was a savior if he was in your lineup tonight. He should be back in the starting lineup for the next one and even with tonight's benching, he's averaging 17.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 3-pointers on 43 percent shooting over his last five. The only surprise here, albeit mild, was that Thon Maker, and not Michael Beasley, got the start. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:58 pm
  • Quincy Acy scores 14 points
    Quincy Acy scored a season-high 14 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers against the Hornets on Saturday.

    Advice: It looks like someone wants a rest-of-season deal. Acy received a second 10-day deal yesterday and has played very well as the backup center. Maybe he likes to play in New York and he could stick. Knicks fans may remember the MVP chants for Acy back in January 2015. He's only an add if you have dead weight. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:48 pm
  • Jason Smith scores season-high 16 points
    Jason Smith scored a season-high 16 points with four rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers in 19 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.

    Advice: He's actually seen at least 19 minutes in three straight with garbage time not factoring into this. Smith gets most of his run behind Marcin Gortat, but coach Scott Brooks has run him out there at the four for a total of 22 minutes over those three. The Wizards played some bigger teams in that span against the Grizzlies, Knicks and Pistons, so that may be a factor on the uptick. If he is good again vs. Charlotte on Monday, that may put him on the radar in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:04 pm
  • Mile High Buckets: Mo Speights starting
    Marreese Speights will start against the Nuggets on Saturday.

    Advice: Mo Buckets has been lighting it up with treys in 17 straight, so he'll be taking those into altitude. Speights in a starting role is very intriguing, but it's hard to pick him up long term with Blake Griffin getting closer. If you want to use him for this week, give him a look. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:31 pm
  • Mudiay, Will, Gallo, Faried, Jokic starting
    Emmanuel Mudiay, Will Barton, Danilo Gallinari, Kenneth Faried and Nikola Jokic will start against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He is fine and should feast in this game as long as he doesn't get into foul trouble. Trust the Jokic. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:26 pm
  • Chandler, Gallo, Mudiay are available to play
    Wilson Chandler (personal), Danilo Gallinari (ankle) and Emmanuel Mudiay (back) are all available to play on Saturday against the Clippers.

    Advice: Chandler only needed one game away from the team for personal reasons. This game figures to be somewhat fast and Danilo Gallinari is a go, so Chandler should slot into the four most of this game. Juan Hernangomez takes a big hit here. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:20 pm
  • Darrell Arthur to be inactive often?
    Darrell Arthur (knee) is expected to rest and miss practices throughout the season.

    Advice: He is dealing with arthritis in his need, so the Nuggets will be cautious with him all season. This is not surprising at all based on his injury history. Arthur may not be in the rotation while Kenneth Faried is active. Leave him on the wire almost everywhere. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:26 pm
  • KOQ back to the bench
    Kyle O'Quinn will comes off the bench against the Suns on Saturday.

    Advice: He is coming off a great start, but coach Jeff Hornacek will shift him back to the bench behind Joakim Noah. O'Quinn can go off in a short amount of playing time and Noah won't play too much, so his value doesn't change in a big way. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:10 pm
  • Kevin Love (back) will play against the Spurs
    Kevin Love (back) will play against the Spurs on Saturday night.

    Advice: He did not play against the Suns on Thursday, but the Cavs still took care of business without him. We'll see if that was more of a precaution to hold him out, but Love going through shootaround and being announced as in so early are great signs. Expect him to be firing away with the Spurs keying on LeBron James. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:49 pm
  • Jabari Parker benched for team rule violation
    Jabari Parker has been benched for Saturday's game against the Heat due to a team rule violation.

    Advice: Those are really all the details we have so far on this. Coach Jason Kidd is about as unpredictable as they come, so Parker could play anywhere from zero seconds to 47 minutes and 59 seconds. Thon Maker will get the start with Parker being punished. Obviously there's no long-term concern here, but DFS owners probably want to steer clear of this situation today. Although, you have to like Giannis Antetokounmpo even more. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:27 pm
  • Jabari Parker to bench, Thon Maker to start
    Thon Maker will start for Jabari Parker against the Heat on Saturday.

    Advice: Coach Jason Kidd is at it again. The Bucks are on the road for the back-to-back set, so Jabari getting the night off clearly comes to mind here. There's an off chance the team just wants to get a look at Maker, but that's quite the sharp adjustment. We wouldn't suggest using Parker in DFS today. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:14 pm
  • Justin Hamilton (rest) getting Saturday off
    Justin Hamilton (rest) will not play against the Hornets on Saturday.

    Advice: It's his turn to get the day off in a back-to-back set. With Trevor Booker getting the night off on Friday, he basically slides right back into his old role -- Hamilton played all power forward on Friday. We should see a lot of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson at the four. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:46 pm
  • Joel Anthony to sign with Spurs?
    Joel Anthony is expected to sign with the Spurs.

    Advice: The team is looking for another big man, so they'll go back to Anthony to add some depth. He was with the team at training camp, but was waived on Oct. 22. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:15 pm
    Not Active
     
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) available on Saturday
    Darrell Arthur (left knee soreness) will be available to play on Saturday, but will be on a minutes restriction.

    Advice: Even once fully healthy, Arthur will have a difficult time earning heavy minutes with Kenneth Faried playing well of late. However, Arthur may cut into the playing time of Faried and Juan Hernangomez. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:28 am
  • Gallinari (ankle) says he will play Saturday
    Danilo Gallinari (ankle) says he will play Saturday vs. the Clippers

    Advice: Gallinari sat out Thursday's game vs. the Spurs after logging heavy minutes on his nagging ankle earlier in the week. The Nuggets have been unafraid to play Gallinari plenty even when he is dealing with bumps and bruises. Feel free to insert Gallo back in your starting lineup for Saturday. Gallinari's return will cut into Will Barton and Jamal Murray's minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:05 am
  • Kevin Love (back) questionable for Saturday
    Kevin Love (back) went through shootaround Saturday morning but is questionable for Saturday night's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Love missed Thursday's game due to the back injury. James Jones started in place of Love on Thursday, scoring 14 points in 20 minutes. Channing Frye played 30 minutes off the bench, finishing with 18 points, 10 rebounds and four 3-pointers. Frye is the preferable DFS play and/or streaming option if Love does not pay Saturday. In addition, LeBron James and Kyrie Irving will be asked to shoulder more of the offensive load if Love is sidelined. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:12 am
  • Ryan Anderson returned to action on Friday January 20. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:41 am
    GTD
     
  • Nikola Mirotic scores five points
    Nikola Mirotic made 1-of-6 from the field for five points with four rebounds, two assists and five fouls in 17 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: When Bad Mirotic shows up, he shows up in emphatic fashion. These are the breaks with him, but he is still worth owning in standard leagues unless there is an irresistible free agent out there. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:44 pm
  • Myles Turner scores 15 points in loss
    Myles Turner scored 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting with four rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks in 33 minutes vs. the Lakers on Friday.

    Advice: Turner is having a breakout season in every sense of the word and Pacers president Larry Bird gushed about his young center this week. "He wants to be great. He’s going to be great," Bird said. "To me, I think he’s got a chance to be one of the best players or maybe the best player [in the franchise’s history]." Turner is just 20 years old and is flirting with top-20 value in standard leagues on the season, so he's going to be a superstar in real life and in fantasy for a very long time. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:31 pm
  • Draymond Green fills it up in a win
    Draymond Green was key in the win over the Rockets on Friday, scoring 15 points with eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: The Dubs get all the credit for their offense, but their defense was a big reason why they won this game. Green actually only played eight minutes at the five in this game, which is somewhat surprising with how the Rockets count on perimeter scoring so much. Despite a three percent dip in usage and a four percent dip in true shooting percentage, Green is still a first-round value in standard leagues. It's not all about scoring, you guys. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:14 pm
  • Thaddeus Young racks up five more steals
    Thaddeus Young racked up five more steals in Friday's loss to the Lakers, adding nine points (3-of-9 FGs), eight rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer 33 minutes.

    Advice: He's a thief and has racked up a ridiculous 20 steals over his last five games. He's averaging 10.8 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 4.0 steals and 0.6 triples in that span, so the steals are really boosting his value right now. He gets a tough matchup vs. the Jazz on Saturday, but continue to roll him out there. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:08 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell scores eight points
    Montrezl Harrel scored eight points in a start against the Warriors on Friday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal.

    Advice: It'll be interesting for Harrell now that Clint Capela looked fantastic. For what it's worth, Harrell has looked better than Nene (rest), so maybe the Rockets just roll with two bigs. They also don't play two-center lineups, so the No. 2 battle will be important. We would still hold him in most cases because he would likely have value with 20-24 minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:53 pm
  • Clint Capela scores career-high 22 points
    Clint Capela showed he was close to 100 percent against the Warriors on Friday, scoring a career-high 22 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 21 minutes.

    Advice: We'll keep this one simple here. If Capela is somehow on your waiver wire, go fix that right now and pick him up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:49 pm
  • Terrence Jones scores 13 points off bench
    Terrence Jones scored 13 points with eight rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 22 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Alvin Gentry is really just using Jones as a backup center behind Anthony Davis. With Davis banged up for the umpteenth time, Jones should still be held despite the dip in minutes. Besides, Jones has still flirted with standard league value even with Davis healthy for the most part. Just hold him and hope you hit the jackpot. In football terms, he's the Spencer Ware of handcuffs. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:37 pm
  • Justin Hamilton doesn't do much in start
    Justin Hamilton played 24 minutes in a start for Trevor Booker (rest) on Friday against the Pelicans, scoring six points with five rebounds and no turnovers.

    Advice: Somewhat surprisingly, he played 100 percent of his minutes at power forward today. The Nets have played him as a straight center and as a combo big before, so he'll likely get at least some minutes when Brook Lopez gets a night off. Just keep an eye on him for now, especially with the Nets playing Rondae Hollis-Jefferson at the four more. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:13 pm
  • Quincy Acy scores 12 points
    Quincy Acy scored a season-high 12 points with eight rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

    Advice: He was happy to get a second 10-day deal and he made the Nets feel good about it right off the bat. Acy plays mostly center for the Nets, so keep that in mind if Brook Lopez rests. He'll only be a desperation stream or punt in DFS best case. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:07 pm
  • Ryan Anderson ruled out for Saturday
    Ryan Anderson (illness) will not play on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: He was not right at all with just nine minutes on Friday. A doctor told him he may have to deal with this stomach bug for 1-2 weeks, so there is a very good chance Anderson misses more games. While he is out, we'll see more Sam Dekker and Corey Brewer. If you want to pick one up in a deeper league, we'd prefer Dekker. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:50 pm
    GTD
     
  • Cody Zeller gets just 23 minutes
    Cody Zeller played 23 minutes against the Raptors on Friday with 11 points, three rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

    Advice: Roy Hibbert had a decent game again and the game got to garbage time, so that explains the dip in playing time. Zeller has been flirting with mid-round value in 2017, so he's still a hold in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:15 pm
  • Jabari Parker scores 25 w/ three triples
    Jabari Parker scored 25 points with six rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes vs. the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: The Bucks really struggled tonight but Parker was one of the few bright spots. He finished 8-of-17 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line, and this was his fourth game of January with three or more 3-pointers. It's going to be interesting to see how the rumored return of Khris Middleton (hamstring) will impact Parker's touches, but his owners have no reason to be concerned. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:42 pm
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) will not return
    Ryan Anderson (illness) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: He started the game which was a surprise, but clearly didn't look right and finished scoreless in nine minutes. Anderson should be considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies. Corey Brewer started the second half in his place, but there should be more minutes available for Sam Dekker as well. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:28 pm
    GTD
     
  • Ryan Anderson starts, Brewer to bench
    Updating a previous report, Ryan Anderson (illness) started on Friday vs. the Warriors with Corey Brewer returning to the bench.

    Advice: He's not close to 100 percent, so we still expect his minutes to be limited. We'll let you know how he looks after the game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:16 pm
    GTD
     
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) to play off bench Fri
    Ryan Anderson (illness) will not start Friday vs. the Warriors, but is expected to play off the bench.

    Advice: Corey Brewer will start at small forward again, with Trevor Ariza shifting to power forward. Anderson has missed each of the Rockets last two games and was limited in the two games prior due to the a bad case of the flu. Doctors initially told Anderson that he would miss 1-2 weeks. Ryno's minutes will very likely be limited, as he is still not yet close to 100 percent. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:57 pm
    GTD
     
  • Justin Hamilton to start at PF on Friday
    With Trevor Booker (rest) sitting out, Justin Hamilton will start at power forward on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Hamilton is averaging 7.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 0.8 assists in his four previous starts this season. Thus, he is a risky DFS play. Luis Scola and Quincy Acy will also likely see additional minutes off the bench with Booker out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:45 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell will start against Warriors
    Montezl Harrell will get the start against the Warriors on Friday night.

    Advice: With Nene resting and Clint Capela limited to 11 minutes in the last game, Harrell should play a bunch. That said, the Rockets will likely be going small quite a bit in this game and Capela will get more than 11 minutes tonight. We still think Harrell is a very good bet for 24-plus minutes, which makes him a very intriguing target. He should remain owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:25 pm
  • Ryan Anderson will try to play on Friday
    Ryan Anderson (illness) will try to play on Friday against the Warriors.

    Advice: He was not feeling good at shootaround and was headed to get an IV. In other words, there's a decent chance he can't play his normal minutes tonight. If he can't go, we should see more Sam Dekker and Corey Brewer while Trevor Ariza plays the four. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:19 pm

  • Darrell Arthur listed as questionable
    Darrell Arthur (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: This is an upgrade from him being listed as doubtful to play on Thursday before the DNP. Arthur is likely out of the rotation anyway with Kenneth Faried playing well. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:09 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari (ankle) questionable for Sat
    Danilo Gallinari (ankle) is listed as questionable to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: Back on Wednesday, he was listed as probable for Thursday, but he did not play in the loss to the Spurs. Gallinari was only ruled out about 30 minutes before the game started, so he was fairly close to playing. If he's out again, Juancho Hernangomez could get another start, but he would be a risky play with Wilson Chandler likely back. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:06 pm
  • Nikola Jokic (ankle) is probable
    Nikola Jokic (ankle) is listed as probable for Saturday against the Clippers.

    Advice: It's important to note that he is listed for an ankle, which was the same reason he was listed before Thursday's 35-point gem. Jokic had some knee to upper-leg contact and was in some pain for about two minutes, but he didn't miss time. He should be all set for another big game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:01 pm
  • Wilson Chandler not on the injury report
    Wilson Chandler (personal) is not on the injury report for Saturday against the Clippers.

    Advice: It looks like Chandler only needed the one game for his personal reasons. With him back, he'll likely be getting a few minutes at the three to go with his heavy dose of minutes at the four. Juancho Hernangomez would be the most likely to lose minutes. Chandler should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:58 pm
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) questionable Friday
    Ryan Anderson (illness) participated in shootaround but remains listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Anderson has missed each of the Rockets last two games and was limited in the two games prior as he battled the flu bug. He planned to get intravenous fluids before leaving Toyota Center. "Not feeling so great. Just a stomach virus that's been going around," Anderson said. "It's still kind of there, but I'm going to get an IV after this and try to do it for the game. It's just draining." Anderson is expected to slide back into the starting lineup, assuming he is healthy enough to suit up. Corey Brewer has started at small forward with Anderson out. Daily Slant: If Anderson is forced to miss another contest, we should see a nice spike in usage for James Harden, which is saying something considering he's already 2nd in the league in that regard. His usage sits at a cool 36.3% on the year, but that number jumps to 41.2% with Anderson off the floor. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:28 am

  • Trust The Jokic: Nikola scores career-high 35
    Nikola Jokic erupted for a career-high 35 points during a 118-104 loss to the Spurs on Thursday, adding 12 rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He went bonkers in the fourth quarter, scoring 14 straight points for the Nuggets to keep them in this game. As you might expect, coach Mike Malone had some nice things to say after the game. "Whether it's playmaking, scoring, rebounding, he's a terrific young talent who's only getting better before our eyes," Malone said. Jokic became the first Nugget with three straight games of at least 25 points and 10 boards since Carmelo Anthony. In those three games, Jokic averaged 31.3 points, 12.7 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.7 blocks and 1.3 treys on 61.9 percent from the field. He's been a top-five player in his last 10 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:41 pm
  • Juan Hernangomez scores eight in a start
    Juan Hernangomez played 38 minutes in a start against the Spurs on Thursday, scoring eight points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He was really good and his defensive presence will get him on coach Mike Malone's good side. He played mostly at the three in this game, but he also played some power forward minutes. Hernangomez also played the entire fourth quarter of his close game as the PF-C combo with Nikola Jokic. If Danilo Gallinari (ankle) needs to miss more time, we may see more of Juancho. He's worth a look in 20-team leagues for now. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:33 pm
  • Kyle O'Quinn busts out in a loss
    Kyle O'Quinn thrived in a start against the Wizards on Thursday, scoring 14 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal in 21 minutes.

    Advice: This comes on the heels of a 10-minute dud on Wednesday. We've called him Kyle Yo-Yo'Quinn before, so this obviously isn't a surprise to see him go off after many had high hopes for him. Joakim Noah (ankle) has a decent chance to play on Saturday, but feel free to give KOQ a look in standard leagues. His inconsistent play is maddening, though. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:38 pm
  • Tristan Thompson dislocates finger, returns
    Tristan Thompson played just 20 minutes against the Suns on Thursday with six rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

    Advice: After dislocating his left index finger in the first half, Thompson started the second half with wrap around his finger. Channing Frye played an excellent game and the Cavs never really lost control, so that explains the low playing time. For now, we're expecting Thompson to be a full go on Saturday in the national game against the Spurs. Thompson has only turned in 13th-round value on the season, so he's not the best for fantasy. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:03 pm
  • Tristan Thompson will start the second half
    Tristan Thompson (finger) will start the second half on Thursday.

    Advice: X-rays were negative and he should be all set. This game will likely be in garbage time in about 30 minutes. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:29 pm
  • Juancho Hernangomez likely to start
    Juancho Hernangomez is likely to start against the Spurs on Thursday.

    Advice: With no Danilo Gallinari (ankle) or Wilson Chandler (personal), Hernangomez could see minutes around 24 tonight. We should also see a ton of Barton at the three, which would open up some minutes for Jamal Murray. Hernangomez is only worth a look in deep leagues for now with Chandler and Gallo not expected to miss much time. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:15 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari (ankle) ruled out vs. Spurs
    Danilo Gallinari (ankle) has been ruled out to face the Spurs on Thursday night.

    Advice: He was probable on Wednesday, but was downgraded this morning to questionable. The Nuggets have continuously listed him as probable for several points this season and would play him, but they'll sit him against Kawhi Leonard. Hopefully, it's just a one-day thing for the oft-injured forward. Will Barton should get massive minutes tonight while Jamal Murray and Juan Hernangomez get some decent burn. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:04 pm
  • Tristan Thompson likely to return to game
    Tristan Thompson left Thursday's game in the first half and went straight to the locker room after dislocating his left index finger.

    Advice: X-rays were negative and it sounds like he should return to play in the second half, according to the Cavs' broadcast team. He had four rebounds, two blocks and missed both of his shots before heading to the locker room. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:03 pm
  • Kevin Love (back) out; James Jones starting
    Kevin Love (back) has been ruled out for Thursday against the Suns and James Jones will start in his place.

    Advice: He was limited in shootaround and was previous listed as questionable. Love did say he wasn't going to miss additional time after his Monday injury, so he's not progressing as expected. Plus, he's had back problems before. There will be more shots to go to LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, but besides that there isn't really a pickup to make with this move. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:25 pm
  • Brett Brown says Simmons should play
    Coach Brett Brown said he thinks the 76ers will have Ben Simmons (foot) at some point this year.

    Advice: In case you missed it yesterday, ESPN reported he could debut shortly after the All-Star Game. This is really the most positive sign from Brown about a potential target date. This could be due to the 76ers arguably playing the best basketball in 2017 and now they actually have a chance to make the playoffs. We'd still rather stash Khris Middleton (hamstring), but feel free to stash Simmons if you have a big lead or an open I.R. spot. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:27 am
    Injured
     
  • Nikola Jokic (ankle) will play on Thursday
    Nikola Jokic (right ankle sprain) will play on Thursday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: He was listed as probable and his status was never really in doubt for tonight's game. Make sure the fantasy superstar is deployed in all lineups, even in a tough matchup vs. the Spurs -- Jokic had 19 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and a steal in their previous meeting on Jan. 5. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:38 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) ruled out for Thursday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play on Thursday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Of course he won't. Arthur can't stay healthy and the Nuggets are going to limit his workload whenever they can. With Wilson Chandler (personal) out and Danilo Gallinari (ankle) questionable, we should see a lot of Kenneth Faried tonight and may even get a Jusuf Nurkic sighting. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:19 am
  • Gallinari (ankle) downgraded to questionable
    Danilo Gallinari (right ankle) has been downgraded to questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: He was listed as probable on Wednesday, so this is a concern. However, a conflicting report from Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post said Gallinari is a "go." The forward has been on the injury report in his previous three games, but played 30, 40 and 39 minutes in those three contests. If he's unable to play, rookie Juan Hernangomez could see a sizable bump in minutes. Will Barton should also be a workhorse on the wings. Hopefully we'll have more clarity soon. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:18 am
  • Wilson Chandler, Gary Harris out Thursday
    Wilson Chandler (personal) and Gary Harris (ankle) will not play on Thursday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Chandler was listed as out, but now we have official confirmation. This is a tough blow for the Nuggets because Danilo Gallinari (ankle) was just downgraded to questionable. The Nuggets play two more times this week on Saturday and Sunday, so Chandler's owners should sit tight for now. Will Barton looks like a great DFS play and we could see more of rookie Juan Hernangomez. Chandler's absence also raises Kenneth Faried's floor, especially with Darrell Arthur (knee) out. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:15 am
  • Quincy Acy will sign another 10-day contract
    Quincy Acy will sign another 10-day contract with the Nets.

    Advice: Acy has made four brief appearances for the Nets, but he made a decent fist impression with averages of 6.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 7.5 minutes per game. Unless his role grows, fantasy owners can continue to ignore him. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:09 am
  • Kevin Love (back) limited at shootaround
    Kevin Love (back) was limited at the morning shootaround and remains questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Suns.

    Advice: He was also limited at Wednesday's practice. Love was adamant after leaving Monday's game vs. the Warriors that he wouldn't miss any additional time, but he's shaping up to be a game-time call. LeBron James and Kyrie Irving will be popular DFS plays if Love sits, while Channing Frye would likely draw the start in his absence. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:06 am
  • Myles Turner scores 16 points vs. Kings
    Myles Turner made 7-of-9 from the field for 16 points with five rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: While he didn't do much damage on the glass and only had one block, Turner was really good against DeMarcus Cousins on the defensive end. Turner had seen a sudden spike on the glass this month, averaging 10.3 boards per game in his previous January games -- he only had 6.5 in December. Turner has held steady as a second-round player in standard leagues this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:59 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver likely headed for minutes
    Anthony Tolliver came off the bench against the Pacers on Wednesday with five points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes.

    Advice: The first time Rudy Gay (Achilles) missed extended time, Tolliver was let loose a bit with 28.7 minutes per game in that 11-game span. He averaged 9.7 points, 4.8 boards, 0.9 assists, 0.5 blocks and 1.9 treys on 50.0 percent from the field. While that percentage may not be sustainable, Tolliver did post ninth-round value in that span, so he's worth a look if you need treys from a power forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:20 pm
  • Terrence Jones plays 18 minutes off bench
    Terrence Jones played just 18 minutes off the bench vs. Orlando, finishing with seven points, five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Jones also had a steal and a block, so it wasn't altogether terrible for fantasy purposes. The playing time is a concern, but with Donatas Motiejunas basically out of the rotation we expect T-Jones to see more run vs. the Nets on Friday. If you've owned him for any stretch of time this season, you already know that a ton of patience is required. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:03 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell scores 12 with five blocks
    Montrezl Harrell got the start against the Bucks on Wednesday, blocking a career-high five shots with 12 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: He's been awesome and the Rockets have a good problem with both Harrell and Clint Capela outperforming their expectations. For what it's worth, the other four starters with Harrell have a +1.7 net rating in 161 minutes while that foursome and Capela is +14.8, so it does make sense to move Harrell to the bench once Capela is 100 percent. Whatever the case, both players could still have value with 20-24 minutes. Obviously they would need Nene to fall out of the rotation, which could happen. Harrell is a hold for now. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:39 pm
  • Clint Capela scores just five off bench
    Clint Capela came off the bench against the Bucks on Wednesday with five points, three rebounds and two blocks in 11 minutes.

    Advice: He still has a minutes limit and it may stick around. The good news is Capela came in for garbage time, so maybe the plan all along was to have him close out for this game. While he hasn't done much yet, he has to be owned in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:32 pm
  • Kyle O'Quinn flops in 10 minutes as starter
    Kyle O'Quinn flopped as a starter vs. Boston on Wednesday, scoring just two points with one rebound in 10 minutes.

    Advice: Joakim Noah (ankle) and Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) were both out of commission tonight, but O'Quinn burned owners who deployed him for short-term value. Willy Hernangomez went off with 17 points and 11 boards off the bench tonight, and even Marshall Plumlee outplayed KOQ with five points, seven boards, three assists and two blocks. Noah is day-to-day and the 'hot hand' approach at the center spot makes O'Quinn too unreliable to own. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:23 pm
  • ESPN: Ben Simmons could debut after AS break
    Ben Simmons (foot) "could make his much-anticipated NBA debut shortly after the All-Star break," according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

    Advice: The report adds the No. 1 pick has a chance to make his NBA debut "near March," assuming he doesn't have a setback. He went through 5-on-5 for the first time last week and continues to do some work pre-game, including on the road. He'll likely have a minutes limit upon his return, so it may be a while before he's contributing reliable production. Simmons is a questionable stash in standard leagues, especially if you need to make up ground in the standings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:36 pm
    Injured
     
  • Kyle O'Quinn will start Wednesday vs. Boston
    Kyle O'Quinn will move into the starting five for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, with Joakim Noah (ankle) unavailable.

    Advice: O'Quinn is about as hit-or-miss as they come, but with Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles), Lance Thomas (orbital fracture) and Noah all on the sidelines Wednesday night, he's sure looking at a good amount of opportunity. He's someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or DFS punt play. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:49 pm
  • Clint Capela will come off the bench vs. MIL
    Clint Capela will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Capela started in his return from a 15-game absence on Tuesday, but only lasted nine minutes, so it doesn't make much sense to start him while he's dealing with a minutes limit. Capela does have some nice upside, but it'll probably take him at least a week before he's really up to speed. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:33 pm
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) out Wednesday vs. MIL
    Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Corey Brewer got the start on Tuesday with Anderson on the sidelines, and Sam Dekker saw some increased playing time with the second unit, but neither guy did that much. Instead, James Harden took on most of the offensive burden and popped off for a 40-point triple-double, and it'll likely be more of the same this evening. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:28 pm
    GTD
     
  • Harrell starting, Clint Capela to the bench
    Montrezl Harrell will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game, sending Clint Capela to the bench.

    Advice: Capela is being eased back into things after a lengthy layoff, so it doesn't make sense to have him start if he's only going to play around 10 minutes or so. Harrell will likely split minutes at the five-spot with Capela and Nene, so he's not a very attractive option in most formats despite the starter tag. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:25 pm
  • No chance Simmons plays on Jan. 27
    Coach Brett Brown said there is "no chance" Ben Simmons will play on Jan. 27 against the Rockets.

    Advice: That game was switched to national TV, which has caused some speculation about Simmons making his debut. He is doing some on-court work and the 76ers actually in the mix to make the postseason has given the team a reason to play him. Perhaps he can make his debut next month, but he's still only a questionable stash without a target date. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:32 pm
    Injured
     
  • Danilo Gallinari probable to play on Thursday
    Danilo Gallinari (right ankle) is probable to play on Thursday against the Spurs on Thursday.

    Advice: This is fairly routine for the Nuggets with Gallo also on the injury report on Tuesday. He played 39 minutes and scored 14 points, so he's fairly close to healthy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:06 pm
  • Jokic, Gallinari probable Thursday vs. SA
    Nikola Jokic (right ankle sprain) and Danilo Gallinari (right ankle sprain) are probable to play Thursday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: When they're listed as probable in Denver, that means that they'll get out there, so owners can feel confident plugging these guys in their lineups on Thursday. Jokic has been putting up top-3 numbers in 9-cat leagues over the past two weeks, so he's obviously a must-start guy every time he's active. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:04 pm
  • Darrell Arthur is doubtful to play
    Darrell Arthur (knee) is doubtful to play against the Spurs on Thursday.

    Advice: He did not play on Tuesday due to his oft-injured knee. With Wilson Chandler (personal) listed as out, there could be plenty of minutes going to Kenneth Faried and even Juan Hernangomez. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:03 pm
  • Wilson Chandler (personal) is listed as out
    Wilson Chandler (personal) is listed as out for Thursday against the Spurs.

    Advice: Being listed as out isn't the same thing as being out, so hopefully we get another update on Thursday before the road game. Kenneth Faried has played really well in the first unit, which has cost Chandler some playing time. He's still worth owning, though. If he is indeed out, Faried, Jusuf Nurkic and Juan Hernangomez could play more. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:56 pm
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) questionable for Wed
    Ryan Anderson (illness) is questionable to play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He missed Tuesday's game against the Heat, which allowed Corey Brewer to get a start. If Anderson does miss another game, Brewer, Sam Dekker, Trevor Ariza and Pat Beverley could all see more run. Dekker could be a decent DFS punt today. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:41 pm
    GTD
     
  • Kevin Love (back) questionable for Thursday
    Kevin Love (back) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, and he's being listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Suns.

    Advice: Love didn't take any contact during Wednesday's practice, and with a matchup against the 13-28 Suns, the Cavs may want to play it safe with Love in order to have him 100 percent for Saturday's matchup with the Spurs. We should get another update following Thursday morning's shootaround, but it's looking like he'll be headed for a game-time call. If he's out, Channing Frye would likely draw the start, with LeBron James and Kyrie Irving being asked to do a bit more on offense. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:40 am
  • Nikola Jokic racks up 29 points, 15 rebounds
    Nikola Jokic stayed red hot on Tuesday, racking up 29 points, 15 rebounds, three blocks and a 3-pointer on 12-of-22 shooting in a 127-121 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: The Lakers are pretty bad against opposing bigs and Jokic took advantage tonight. He's absolutely crushing right now, scoring 29 and 30 points in each of his last two games, and averaging 25 points, 11.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 3-pointers over his last five games, while shooting a ridiculous 65 percent from the floor and 76 percent from the line. He might be the most underrated fantasy player in the land right now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:59 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic plays 22 minutes in return
    Nikola Mirotic returned from an illness on Tuesday and had six points, five rebounds, a steal, a block and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

    Advice: Not a bad line from Mirotic, who also benefitted from the absence of Taj Gibson, who was out with an ankle injury. The song remains the same with Miro - he'll have some big games and some bad games, so catching him on the right night can be tough. But if Gibson's ankle injury lingers, Mirotic will be someone worth picking up, while he could also bounce back for a decent second half, with or without Gibson. Mirotic is the textbook definition of a borderline player to own in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:09 pm
  • Justin Hamilton returns to bench, scores 9
    Justin Hamilton returned to the bench on Tuesday vs. the Raptors, scoring nine points on 4-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, one assist and one triple in 13 minutes.

    Advice: That's an impressive stat line in limited minutes, but Hamilton usually doesn't have much value while Brook Lopez is active. Lopez did tweak his right ankle in the loss, so put Hamilton on your radar in case Lopez misses Friday's game vs. the Pelicans. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:09 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell plays 16 minutes on Tuesday
    Montrezl Harrell played just 16 minutes and hit 5-of-6 shots for 13 points, one rebound and no blocks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Clint Capela started, but played just nine minutes, while Harrell and Nene handled the center minutes off the bench. Nene had four points and seven rebounds in 24 minutes, but both players are going to take a hit once Capela gets his body back in NBA shape after missing 15 games with a broken leg. If you are ready to drop Harrell, it makes sense. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:08 pm
  • Clint Capela fails to score in return
    Clint Capela played for the first time in 15 games after a broken leg and started on Tuesday, but missed all three of his shots and didn't score in just nine minutes of action.

    Advice: The good news is that he's back and the bad news is that it will be baby steps for Capela as he works his way back into game shape. He's worth holding, but it may be a week or so before we see him return to form. He did have five rebounds and a block, for what it's worth. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:03 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari and Will Barton will play
    Danilo Gallinari (ankle) and Will Barton (illness) will play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Both players were listed as probable, but they are ready to roll in a favorable matchup vs. the Lakers. Get them active and check back after the game for an update. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:18 pm
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) ruled out for Tuesday
    Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

    Advice: Corey Brewer will move into the starting five sans Anderson, with Trevor Ariza shifting over to the four-spot, and both James Harden and Eric Gordon will see an uptick to their respective usage rates. Tuesday will be the first game of a back-to-back set, so Anderson doesn't have much time to rest up for Wednesday's game against the Bucks. For now we'll be considering him questionable, and his owners will need to check back for another update closer to Wednesday's tip. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:04 pm
    GTD
     
  • Gallinari (ankle) probable for Wednesday
    Danilo Gallinari (left ankle soreness) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Gallinari has been battling a nagging ankle injury for over a week now, but it has not limited his playing time. In fact, Gallo played a game-high 40 minutes in Monday's win over the Magic. Don't hesitate to insert Gallinari in your starting lineup as usual. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:04 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Tuesday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: This will be the third consecutive game Arthur has missed due to his latest knee pain. Kenneth Faried started and played a season-high 33 minutes on Monday. The Manimal will likely see extra minutes on Tuesday as well due to Arthur's absence. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:54 am
  • HOU's backup center will be based on matchups
    Clint Capela (knee) will start for Houston going forward, but his backup will likely be based on matchups most nights, according to coach Mike D'Antoni.

    Advice: "Maybe the first guy off the bench will be a matchup consideration. Or if bulky centers give Clint a problem, I'll substitute early and get Nene in there. Or if we need energy today, maybe here comes Montrezl," said coach D'Antoni. Harrell averaged 14.6 points (on 68.3 percent shooting) and 4.9 rebounds in 27.4 minutes over the 14 games Capela missed due to his knee injury, but will obviously see a big hit to his playing time and production serving solely as a reserve. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:25 am
  • Nikola Mirotic (illness) will play Tuesday
    Nikola Mirotic (illness) will play Tuesday vs. the Mavs.

    Advice: Mirotic, who has missed four straight games due to strep throat, has been a disappointment this season, averaging career-lows in points (9.5), assists (0.8), field goal percentage (.387), 3-point percentage (.312) and free-throw percentage (.758). Hopefully, he can bounce back in the second half of the season to salvage his 2016-17 campaign. Mirotic's return will cut into Doug McDermott's minutes and likely knock Bobby Portis out of the rotation. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:11 am
  • Clint Capela (knee) will start Tuesday night
    Clint Capela (knee) will return to the starting lineup Tuesday night in Miami, but will "probably" play fewer than 20 minutes.

    Advice: Capela will return after missing 15 games. Coach Mike D'Antoni indicated that there will not be a minutes cap in place, but did say: "His condition being what it is, we'll keep him under 20 minutes, probably." Capela was averaging 24.5 minutes per game over Houston's first 28 games this season. Montrezl Harrell had played relatively well in Capela absence, but will now get bumped back to the bench. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:28 am
  • Clint Capela (knee) expected to play Tuesday
    Clint Capela (knee) is expected to make his return to the lineup on Tuesday vs. Miami.

    Advice: "I've been doing pretty good in the workouts by myself, sprinting, dunking. It all felt good," Capela said. He had been playing the best basketball of his career prior to the injury, which was initially projected to cost him 4-6 weeks. He is averaging 11.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks - all career-highs. Make sure he is not floating around your league's waiver wire, as he was returning mid-round value over the first two months of the season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:00 am
  • Jokic leads offensive revival in Denver
    The Nuggets have been one of the NBA's most efficient and effective offenses since sticking with Nikola Jokic as the team's starting center.

    Advice: Over the last month, the Nuggets are top-10 in the league in field goals made, field goal accuracy, 3-point accuracy, 3-point field goals made. Jokic has been the centerpiece of the offense, and the engine driving them forward. Over his last 14 games, Jokic is averaging 19.2 points, 9.1 rebounds and 5.4 assists. He's been top-15 overall fantasy producer over this stretch. The sky is the limit for this kid over the second half of the season Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:31 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee): Tuesday status unknown
    The availability of Darrell Arthur (knee) for Tuesday’s game at the L.A. Lakers is unknown.

    Advice: Arthur missed his second consecutive game due to left knee soreness on Monday. He has missed a total of 10 games this season as a result of knee issues. "He only knows one speed," coach Mike Malone said. "When we (practice) hard he goes hardest. And his knee has a hard time withstanding that pounding. So I almost have to try to protect him from himself at times." Kenneth Faried played a season-high 33 minutes on Monday and would get a boost on Tuesday if Arthur is out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:09 am
  • Marreese Speights scores 23 w/ 10 boards
    Marreese Speights scored a season-high 23 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes in Monday's 120-98 win over the Thunder.

    Advice: He scored 10 of his points in garbage time during the fourth quarter, but Speights was on fire all night, hitting 8-of-15 shots from the field and 4-of-4 from the line. Speights is a per-minute monster, but the problem is that he's only eclipsed the 20-minute mark one time in January (tonight). With Blake Griffin (knee) nearing a return, it's tough to get excited about this. We'll let you know if his role grows. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:24 pm
  • Kevin Love (back) won't miss additional time
    Kevin Love (back) said that he won't miss any additional time.

    Advice: He said his back tightened up on him at Sunday's practice and it flared up when he bumped into Zaza Pachulia in the second quarter. Love did not return to the game after halftime, but the Cavs were likely being cautious due to the lopsided score. Expect Love to play on Thursday vs. the Suns. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:50 pm
  • Draymond Green triple-doubles in win vs. Cavs
    Draymond Green triple-doubled in an easy 126-91 win over the Cavaliers on Monday, scoring 11 points with 13 rebounds and 11 assists.

    Advice: This was his third triple-double of the season and the 17th of his career. Green was incredible on the defensive end, racking up one steal and matching his career-high with five blocks. He didn't have a single turnover in 35 minutes and finished 4-of-6 from the field and 3-of-4 from the stripe in one of his best lines of the season. The Warriors will go for their fifth straight win on Wednesday vs. the Thunder. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:43 pm
  • Cody Zeller goes for 13 & 8 in loss to Boston
    Cody Zeller hit 5-of-7 shots and 3-of-4 free throws for 13 points, eight rebounds, two assists and a block in Monday's 108-98 loss to the Celtics.

    Advice: Five of his rebounds were offensive, which was nice, and he played 31 minutes in the start. He had a 16 & 10 double-double on Friday and played well again tonight, meaning he should be owned in most leagues now that he's healthy and starting at center again for the Hornets. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:59 pm
  • Kevin Love (back) will not return Monday
    Kevin Love (back) will not return for the second half of Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: He is dealing with lower back soreness, but the lopsided score probably has a lot to do with their decision to hold him out -- the Warriors are up by 29 points at halftime. Kyle Korver started the second half in Love's place, but we should see more minutes from Channing Frye as well. Love finished with three points on 1-of-6 shooting with three rebounds and one assist. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:28 pm
  • Wilson Chandler scores nine off Denver bench
    Wilson Chandler came off the bench in Denver victory over Orlando and finished with nine points (on 4-of-12 shooting), eight rebounds, three assists, two turnovers, one 3-pointer and a steal.

    Advice: Kenneth Faried slid into the starting lineup on Monday, which limited Chandler impact. It was actually the first time all season Chandler played fewer than 23 minutes. Wilson had been hot coming into Monday (averaging 17.4 points and 5.8 boards in 31.1 minutes over his last five games), so Monday's game can be viewed as a blip on the radar for the time being... Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:27 pm
  • Terrence Jones scores 15 w/ 8 boards
    Terrence Jones returned to the bench on Monday vs. the Pacers, but looked great with 15 points (6-of-13 FGs), eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one triple in 26 minutes.

    Advice: To the surprise of no one, coach Alvin Gentry started Dante Cunningham, but the forward predictably flopped once again with three points in 31 minutes. Gentry's handling of Jones' minutes has been incredibly frustrating, but he may be forced to roll with Jones for extended minutes with Anthony Davis leaving the game with a back injury. Jones was worth owning before Davis went down, so make sure he's not sitting on your wire as we await further news on The Brow's status. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:43 pm
  • Nikola Jokic pours in career-high 30 points
    Nikola Jokic was unstoppable in the Nuggets blowout victory over Orlando Monday night, scoring a career-high 30 points to go along with 11 rebounds, five assists, three steals and a 3-pointer.

    Advice: Jokic joins Carmelo Anthony as just the second Nugget to tally at least 30 points, 10 boards, five assists and three steals in a single game over the last 25 years. However, this performance isn't a complete surprise because, despite playing through a nagging wrist injury that may require offseason surgery, Jokic has been an absolute beast of late. He is now averaging 21.6 points, 9.5 rebounds and 6.3 assists over the Nuggets last seven games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:32 pm
  • Myles Turner scores 18 w/ four blocks
    Myles Turner scored 18 points with 12 rebounds, four blocks and one assist in Monday's win over the Pelicans.

    Advice: Turner held his own against Anthony Davis and turned in one of the best lines of the night so far, but he did shoot just 7-of-17 from the field and 3-of-6 from the line. Turner was shooting 80.9 percent from the line prior to Monday, so cut him some slack this time around. This was Turner's third game of the season with 18+ points, 12+ rebounds and 4+ blocks, second to only Anthony Davis (6) and Hassan Whiteside (5). Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:26 pm
  • Thaddeus Young racks up six steals in win
    Thaddeus Young racked up six steals in Monday's win over the Pelicans, finishing with 17 points, three rebounds and two assists in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Young was poked in the left eye tonight, but it only cost him a couple minutes and he looked fine down the stretch. This was his eighth career game with 6+ steals (his career high is eight steals) and his second in the span of a week, so this wasn't a complete fluke. He finished 8-of-9 from the field and hit his only free throw in one of the best fantasy lines of the day. He gets another favorable matchup vs. the Kings on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:13 pm
  • Jabari Parker scores 23 points in loss
    Jabari Parker scored 23 points in Monday's loss to Philly, shooting 9-of-17 from the field and 3-of-5 from the line.

    Advice: He continues to thrive from beyond the arc and hit a pair of triples on four attempts Monday, bumping his 3-point percentage up to 41.1 percent on the season. He added five rebounds, one assist and two steals in 35 minutes, and he's now scored 22+ points in five out of his last six games. He should feast in a great mathchup vs. Houston on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:45 pm
  • Clint Capela (knee) feeling good in workouts
    Clint Capela (knee) said that he's been sprinting and dunking during recent workouts, and it all felt good.

    Advice: Capela has been out of commission since Dec. 17, but he could return to the court for Tuesday's game against the Heat. The Rockets will make an official determination on his status following Tuesday morning's shootaround, but he's close enough to a return that he should be stashed in most leagues. He'll likely be eased back into things after the lengthy layoff, but once he's fully up to speed, Montrezl Harrell will lose most of his value. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:42 pm
  • Thaddeus Young (eye) available to return
    Thaddeus Young (eye) is available to return to Monday's game against the Pelicans.

    Advice: Jrue Holiday inadvertently poked Young in the left eye, but after being examined in the locker room, he was deemed available to return. He should be fine. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:57 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari (ankle) will start on Monday
    Danilo Gallinari (left ankle soreness) will start Monday vs. the Magic.

    Advice: He's been playing through the sore ankle over the past few games, and his production has been fine, so owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active for a matchup against the third-worst team in the league at defending the small forward position. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:36 pm
  • Wilson Chandler will come off the bench Mon
    Wilson Chandler will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Magic.

    Advice: Kenneth Faried will get the start in what is likely a matchup based move, but Chandler tends to get his numbers regardless of how he enters the game, so his value won't take much of a hit with the second unit. Feel free to get him active for a favorable matchup with the Magic. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:34 pm
  • Terrence Jones to return to the bench vs. IND
    Terrence Jones will return to the bench for Monday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: Dante Cunningham will get the start today, and Jones value will take a hit with the move back to the bench. As a reserve this season, Jones owns averages of 9.3 points, 5.5 boards and 1.0 block per game, so he's not a great guy to utilize in daily leagues today. He's still a solid stash, though. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:41 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver plays 31 minutes vs. OKC
    Anthony Tolliver scored 10 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Thunder on Sunday.

    Advice: Tolliver started in his fourth consecutive game tonight and has played over 30 minutes in each of his starts. During that stretch, he is averaging 33.3 minutes, 12.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.3 treys per game. Coach Dave Joerger likes to mix it up with his starting five, so at any moment Tolliver could head back to his bench role. However, until that happens, he is worth considering in deeper leagues for fantasy owners in need of 3-pointers and steals. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 9:27 pm
  • Quincy Acy plays 20 minutes vs. Rockets
    Quincy Acy played 20 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Rockets, finishing with seven points, four boards, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Acy is a combined 3-of-4 from deep since joining the Nets on Jan. 10, but perimeter shooting isn't a facet of his game we expect to see with regularity. He was also averaging just 3.0 minutes in his previous two appearances for Brooklyn, with a DNP-CD to his credit, and there's no reason to consider him in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 6:26 pm
  • Justin Hamilton swats career-high three shots
    Justin Hamilton started vs. the Rockets on Wednesday, posting a career-high three blocks with 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting, three boards and two assists in just 18 minutes.

    Advice: Brook Lopez was resting tonight and this highlights Hamilton's potential role should the Nets trade Lopez this season, even though his minutes were depressed due to the Rockets' small-ball attack, as well as the lopsided score. The Nets would likely get back draft picks and/or prospects if they dealt Lopez, rather than current rotation players, which might leave Hamilton as the default starting center. That's purely speculative at the moment, but he's worth keeping in the back of your mind -- just don't expect copious swats, as tonight's fluky total all came in the first quarter. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 6:23 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell gets 16 & 7 in start Sunday
    Montrezl Harrell logged 34 minutes as a starter on Sunday, making 6-of-9 FGs and 4-of-6 FTs to finish with 16 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

    Advice: The bad news is that Clint Capela is nearing a return from his fractured fibula, and could play as soon as Tuesday's road game in Miami. Harrell has carved out a reliable spot in the rotation, but he's averaging just 16.2 minutes off the bench, as opposed to 26.6 minutes as a starter. The clock is ticking, though he's worth owning until we see how the rotation shakes out with Capela active. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 6:05 pm
  • Jabari Parker dishes career-high nine assists
    Jabari Parker handed out a career-high nine assists on Sunday, adding 10 rebounds, eight points and one steal in 33 minutes of action.

    Advice: The ball has been in Parker's hands a ton in January. His 31 total assists this month are more than Giannis Antetokounmpo (25) and not that far behind ostensible point guard Malcolm Brogdon (34). Giannis' ridiculous season has overshadowed Parker, to some extent, but he's flirting with top-50 value in roto leagues and has been even better for the past month. There's no reason to think he'll cool off. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 4:49 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic could return on Tuesday
    Coach Fred Hoiberg is "hopeful" that Nikola Mirotic (illness) will play on Tuesday against Dallas.

    Advice: Mirotic has missed four games due to the illness, which appears to be strep throat. Prior to the issue, he averaged 25.8 minutes, 10.8 points, four rebounds, and 1.3 steals per game in the month of January. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 4:43 pm
  • Nikola Jokic still dealing w/ left wrist pain
    Nikola Jokic still doesn't have full range of motion in his left wrist, he continues to play through pain, and it's possible that he will need surgery after the season.

    Advice: Jokic shed his wrist brace for Thursday's game and plans to play without it again on Monday, and the good news is that there's no suggestion of more DNPs. "I cannot go to push-up position," Jokic said. "[Doctors] said they could [perform surgery], but it wasn’t 100 percent that it would feel better." This isn't a comforting update for Jokic's owners, but he's been on fire lately and all signs point to him playing through his discomfort for the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 3:17 pm
  • Justin Hamilton will start Sunday vs. Houston
    Justin Hamilton will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockets, with Brook Lopez (rest) unavailable.

    Advice: Hamilton has been hit-or-miss in his three starts this season, owning averages of just 5.7 points, 4.0 boards, 1.0 steal, 1.0 block and 1.0 triple on 31.6 percent shooting over 23.3 minutes per game, so he's not much more than a punt play in daily leagues. Head coach Kenny Atkinson also said that Luis Scola and Quincy Acy will get some minutes with Lopez out, but neither of those guys can be considered viable targets in most settings. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 1:23 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) out Monday vs. Magic
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Magic.

    Advice: It's always something with this guy, and Monday will mark his second straight game on the sidelines. Kenneth Faried and Jusuf Nurkic will likely split his limited minutes, which doesn't mean all that much. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 11:48 am
  • Clint Capela (leg) could return on Tuesday
    Clint Capela (leg) could return on Tuesday vs. the Heat or Wednesday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: He has missed about one month of action, but the big man is scheduled to go through practice on Monday. It's fair to assume that Capela will have restrictions right out of the gate, but he shouldn't be sitting on your waiver wire with season averages of 11.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. Montrezl Harrell is now a drop candidate in most leagues, while Nene loses a lot of value as well. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 8:11 am
  • Terrence Jones gets 34 minutes in his start
    Terrence Jones made a start next to Anthony Davis on Saturday against the Bulls, scoring nine points with eight rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 34 minutes.

    Advice: The bad news is the Pelicans were smashed on the glass and they lost this game, but the rotation is encouraging. The other centers didn't play, Jones soaked up the remaining nine minutes as the backup center, and he was staggered a bit with Davis. Considering the Pelicans are -23.1 in net rating in their minutes without both AD and TJ, you would think Jones would get major minutes as a starter to shorten up the second unit minutes without both. We know coach Alvin Gentry is tough to trust, but Jones has to be added in all standard leagues with his upside. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 4:22 pm
  • Terrence Jones expected to start next to AD
    Terrence Jones is expected to start next to Anthony Davis (hip) against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: Could it be? Could coach Alvin Gentry finally be starting his best two big men together? As we've said all season, the Pelicans have a +5.9 net rating with the Jones-Davis lineup while AD is -2.0 without TJ. Maybe, just maybe this move sticks. Make sure Jones isn't on your wire just in case it does. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 1:07 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic ruled out for Sunday night
    Nikola Mirotic (illness) will not play against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

    Advice: He has a really, really bad case of something with now four games out of the lineup. Mirotic being out should open up minutes for Doug McDermott as the second-unit shooter, but McDermott has been awful lately. If things change on Saturday, maybe Bobby Portis gets a look. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 12:31 pm
  • Cody Zeller double-doubles in 36 minutes
    Cody Zeller scored 16 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and three turnovers in 36 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: Roy Hibbert is basically toast and the Hornets don't trust Spencer Hawes for consistent minutes, so Zeller looks like he's set for a big role. If you take injuries out of the equation, he's played 33-plus minutes in his last three full games. He is worth a pickup in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 13, 6:41 pm
  • Cody Zeller will start without restriction
    Cody Zeller (illness) will start without a restriction on Friday against the 76ers.

    Advice: He will get a heavy dose of The Process, so he may still look sick in this game. Zeller was playing well before his illness and was turning in late-round value, so he's worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 13, 2:47 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic (illness) out for Saturday
    Nikola Mirotic (illness) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: This will be his third game out of the lineup with his very bad illness. With him out, it was Paul Zipser getting the start while Bobby Portis also saw some late minutes in a close game. Doug McDermott could also benefit, but he's been in a brutal slump. Mirotic is still a stash. Rotoworld.com Jan 13, 2:29 pm
  • Draymond Green scores 2 with 13 dimes
    Draymond Green missed all four of his shots and scored just two points on Thursday, but also had nine rebounds, 13 assists and two blocks in 30 minutes of Thursday's blowout win over the Suns.

    Advice: The bottom line is that Dray simply doesn't need to score on this team and he tied his season low with two points tonight. But he can also score when necessary and was averaging 10.9 points, 8.5 rebounds, 7.5 assists, 2.1 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 3-pointers per game coming into this one. That's awfully close to triple-double territory, which is why he's still one of the top players in fantasy despite not being much of a scorer on a stacked team. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 10:09 pm
  • Terrence Jones goes off with 24 points in win
    Terrence Jones carried the Pelicans frontcourt in a win over the Nets on Thursday, scoring 24 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Why oh why doesn't coach Alvin Gentry play him more? He obviously stepped up because of Anthony Davis (hip) not playing, but the Jones-Davis lineup has been effective for the Pelicans. Plus, the true centers have been really bad. Jones played just 30 minutes combined in the previous two and Davis could be back for Saturday, but it's kind of hard to leave him on the wire in almost any league. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 8:06 pm
  • Kyle O’Quinn double-doubles vs. Bulls
    Kyle O’Quinn scores 12 points with 11 rebounds, four blocks and three assists in Thursday’s win over the Bulls.

    Advice: O’Quinn played just 16 minutes despite Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) being out, but he was still able to record his fifth double-double of the season and his second consecutive one. It is not surprising to see him be productive in limited time, as he has done it several times before. O’Quinn has some short-term fantasy appeal, if Porzingis misses any more games and on nights when Joakim Noah is resting. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 7:50 pm
  • Terrence Jones, Omer Asik will start vs. BK
    Terrence Jones and Omer Asik will get the start against the Nets on Thursday.

    Advice: With Anthony Davis' 37.1 minutes, 33.6 usage rate and 17.1 rebounding rate out of the picture, there are a lot of stats up for grabs against the NBA's fastest team. The last time AD was out, we saw TJ score 18 points in 26 minutes in a tough matchup against the Clippers, so he should be a nice option in DFS tonight. We'll see how much Donatas Motiejunas plays, as well. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 4:07 pm
  • Wilson Chandler scores 21 in 32 minutes
    Wilson Chandler scored 21 points in 32 minutes against the Pacers on Thursday, adding eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He likes playing overseas and tore it up in China during the NBA lockout season. After a sub-par finish to his 2016, Chandler is rolling in 2017 with averages of 17.4 points, 5.8 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.0 treys. He is a bit of a sell-high player due to trade rumors and being injury prone. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 2:44 pm
  • Thaddeus Young puts up a dud
    Thaddeus Young scored just four points with four rebounds, two assists and one block in 28 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    Advice: Wilson Chandler took him to school throughout this game. Young's offensive game was coming around in his previous 10 with 13.2 points per game to go with his 7.1 boards and 2.2 steals on 50.5 percent from the field. Young should continue to be a mid-round guy in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 2:21 pm
  • Mudiay, Harris, Gallo, Chandler & Jokic start
    Emmanuel Mudiay, Gary Harris, Danilo Gallinaro, Wilson Chandler and Nikola Jokic will start against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: The Nuggets go back to their usual starting lineup with most of their depth set for this one -- Darrell Arthur (leg) is out. Chandler should be looking at minutes in the low 30s, assuming his illness doesn't limit him. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 11:59 am
  • Wilson Chandler will play in London
    Wilson Chandler (illness) will play in London against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: He popped up on the injury report earlier today and it sounds like he's good to go. He'll obviously be a risky DFS play because he may not be able to finish the game. With Darrell Arthur (leg) out, Chandler has a good chance to start. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 11:39 am
  • Cody Zeller (illness) returns to practice
    Cody Zeller (illness) returned to practice on Thursday.

    Advice: Assuming he feels fine in the morning, Zeller should be good to go for Friday's game vs. Philly. He's averaging 10.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.1 blocks per game this season, so he's just a low-end asset in standard leagues. Roy Hibbert will head back to the bench, while Spencer Hawes will no longer be a viable punt play in DFS. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 8:26 am
  • Clint Capela (leg) says he feels good
    Clint Capela (leg) said he's feeling good and he remains on pace to return in the next week or two.

    Advice: "My legs feel good. My quickness, I can run, stuff like that," Capela said. "Right now, I just take it day-after-day working out. I'm on schedule for four-to-six weeks (original timetable), like they said before. My workout is getting better, really better." As long as you're OK with his 44.6 percent shooting from the free throw line, Capela is worth stashing after averaging 11.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks before going down. Montrezl Harrell will lose most of his value when Capela is cleared. Rotoworld.com Jan 12, 6:48 am
  • Marreese Speights scores 13 efficient points
    Marreese Speights scored 13 efficient points off the bench on Wednesday, hitting 5-of-6 shots with three 3-pointers, three rebounds and one assist in a home win vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Speights has made at least one three-pointer in 14 straight games, the longest streak of his career. He's managed to carve out late-round value in Blake Griffin's absence despite playing just 16.9 minutes over the past month. During that time he's established a nice rapport with Chris Paul -- coming into this game, Speights had a 72.7 effective FG percentage off passes from CP3. That said, he's an atypical fantasy big man whose primary virtues have been 3-pointers and FT%. Rotoworld.com Jan 11, 11:25 pm
  • Kevin Love scores 17 points in loss
    Kevin Love made 5-of-15 from the field for 17 points with eight rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He gave everyone a quick scare when he went to the locker room due to a left leg injury. He was only in the locker room for about a minute before he went on a bike, which he does quite often. Love has shaken his durability concerns from earlier in his career, but there's always a chance he gets a night off on the road. The Cavs don't have a road game in a back-to-back until Jan. 29. Rotoworld.com Jan 11, 10:05 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell starts, logs 20 minutes
    Montrezl Harrell earned another start vs. the Wolves on Wednesday, chipping in nine points (2-of-4 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), five boards, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes.

    Advice: Since Clint Capela's first DNP on Dec. 20, Harrell has averaged 14.8 points on 69.5 percent shooting, 4.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 blocks and 0.4 steals. The limited minutes tonight were due to foul trouble and he's worth deploying for now, despite the constant threat from Nene (nine points in 15 minutes). Just keep in mind that Capela is progressing well and could return in late January. Rotoworld.com Jan 11, 9:01 pm
