  • Bojan Bogdanovic scores 15 points with five treys
    Bojan Bogdanovic hit 5-of-10 shots for 15 points, two rebounds, two assists, five triples and two steals across 26 turnover-less minutes in Wednesday's win over the Lakers.

    Advice: Bogdanovic got off to a brutal start this season, but like a lot of guys, he's really turned the corner in February with averages of 16.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.4 triples and 1.8 turnovers per game on 48.2% shooting from the field and 88.6% from the stripe. Those numbers feel sustainable, so he should be a reliable source of points and triples over this second half of the season. Yesterday, 10:51 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 18 points with four treys
    Jordan Clarkson came off the bench for 18 points, four rebounds, two assists and four triples across 24 minutes in Wednesday's blowout win over the Lakers.

    Advice: Clarkson was fairly efficient while he was out there, going 6-of-13 from the floor and 2-of-2 from the stripe, and he also finished the game without committing a single turnover. He's been a steady, top-70 producer this season with averages of 18.3 points, 3.9 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 3.3 triples, 1.0 steal and 1.8 turnovers per game on 45.7% shooting, so he has to be an early frontrunner in the Sixth Man of the Year race. Yesterday, 10:47 pm
  • Rudy Gobert scores 18 points over 27 minutes
    Rudy Gobert produced 18 points, nine rebounds, one block and three turnovers across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 114-89 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: Gobert dominated the Lakers, going 8-of-12 from the field and 2-of-3 from the stripe, and he probably would have had an even more impressive stat line if it weren't for the blowout nature of the game. Derrick Favors didn't miss a shot in his 17 minutes off the bench, going 5-of-5 from the floor and 2-of-4 from the line for 12 points, seven rebounds and one turnover in the easy win. Yesterday, 10:43 pm
  • Donovan Mitchell posts 13/10/8 line in win
    Donovan Mitchell struggled with his shot in Wednesday's win over the Lakers, going 4-of-16 from the floor for 13 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists, two triples and two steals over 31 minutes.

    Advice: Mitchell got off to a brutal start in this game, going just 1-of-8 from the field through the first half of action, but he was able to turn it around a bit after halftime and he finished the game with just one turnover. Mike Conley was the opposite of Mitchell tonight, as he couldn't miss through the first half (5-of-5 FG) but then couldn't get anything after halftime (0-of-5 FG) and he finished with 14 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, four triples, two steals and three turnovers in the blowout win. Yesterday, 10:34 pm
  • Markieff Morris scores 12 points with nine boards
    Markieff Morris scored 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting (2-of-4 FT) as a starter on Wednesday, adding nine rebounds, one assist and one turnover across 28 minutes in a blowout loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: Morris replaced Kyle Kuzma in the first unit today, and he was the Lakers' third-leading scorer with 12 points, which tells you the kind of game it was. Kuzma was nearly invisible in his 25 minutes off the bench, going 2-of-7 from the floor for five points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and two turnovers in the loss. It'll be interesting to see who gets the start on Friday vs. Portland. Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Talen Horton-Tucker nets eight inefficient points
    Talen Horton-Tucker struggled in a spot-start vs. the Jazz on Wednesday, going 3-of-12 from the field for eight points, five rebounds, five assists, two triples and three turnovers across 30 minutes.

    Advice: THT replaced Wesley Matthews in the first unit tonight, but neither guy played well, with Matthews going 1-of-4 from distance for three points, two assists and one steal over 17 minutes. The Lakers are desperate for offense right now with Anthony Davis (calf) and Dennis Schroder (quarantine) unavailable, although Schroder could be back for Friday's game. Horton-Tucker and Matthews are obviously not worth rostering in most leagues. Yesterday, 10:27 pm
  • LeBron James scores 19 points in blowout loss
    LeBron James netted 19 points on 7-of-13 shooting (4-of-5 FT) Wednesday, to go with four rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and four turnovers across 28 minutes in a blowout loss to the Jazz.

    Advice: The Lakers have now lost five of their past six games, and they're currently riding a four-game losing streak. James didn't get much help from his teammates tonight, with Markieff Morris (12) and Montrezl Harrell (16) being the only other players to crack double figures in the scoring department, and as a team, L.A. shot just 40% from the field. They had a tough matchup tonight against the No. 1 seed out West, but maybe they'll be able to right the ship on Friday vs. Portland. Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Mikal Bridges nets 12 points w/ full line in loss
    Mikal Bridges went 4-of-9 from the floor and 2-of-4 from the stripe for 12 points, four rebounds, two assists, two triples, one steal, two swats and just one turnover across 35 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Hornets.

    Advice: Bridges failed to record a steal his last time out, but he got right back on track in that department tonight, and he's been doing a better job with the swipes lately. Over the past six games, Bridges has been flirting with top 50 value behind averages of 13.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.2 triples, 1.0 steal, 1.0 block and just 0.7 turnovers per contest on 58.3% shooting. Yesterday, 10:10 pm
  • Cameron Johnson scores 14 points with two treys
    Cameron Johnson produced 14 points (5-of-11 FG, 2-of-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist, two 3-pointers, one steal and two turnovers in 30 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: With all the forwards healthy in Phoenix, Johnson’s minutes had been trending in the wrong direction, but tonight he was able to clear the 30-minute mark for the first time since Feb. 1. He’s serviceable as a 3-point specialist in extremely deep leagues, but the inconsistent role and production have him off the radar in standard formats. Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Chris Paul double-doubles in narrow loss to CHA
    Chris Paul posted a 20-point, 10-assist double-double in Wednesday's 124-121 loss to the Hornets.

    Advice: CP3 was held to just two points on 1-of-9 shooting his last time out, but he was much more efficient in this one, finishing 7-of-14 from the floor and 3-of-4 from the stripe to go with eight rebounds, three triples, one steal, one block and three turnovers. The Suns had their three-game win streak snapped tonight, but they'll look to right the ship on Friday in Chicago. Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Devin Booker nets 33 points in loss to Charlotte
    Devin Booker dropped in a game-high 33 points on 13-of-24 shooting (3-of-4 FT) Wednesday, to go with three assists, four triples, one steal and an unfortunate five turnovers in a loss to the Hornets.

    Advice: Booker got off to a hot start in this one, dropping in a quick 16 points on 7-of-9 shooting through his first nine minutes of play, making it his fourth-straight home game where he's recorded at least 16 points through the first quarter of play. Phoenix came into this one riding a three-game win streak, and they nearly got their fourth straight win tonight, but the refs missed an obvious foul by Gordon Hayward on Booker's final shot attempt which caused him to miss — and the Suns lost the game. Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Zach LaVine hits 14-of-21 shots for 35 points
    Zach LaVine celebrated making his first All-Star team by torching the Wolves for 35 points, five 3-pointers, two rebounds and two assists on 14-of-21 shooting on Wednesday. 

    Advice: Yeah, he had seven turnovers, but LaVine has really changed his game over the years and has become one of the league's most efficient shooters and scorers. Prior to tonight's explosion, he was shooting a career-high 52 percent from the floor, a career-high 43 percent from downtown and a career-high 84.4 percent from the line while averaging a career-best 28.6 points. And all of those numbers are going up in the morning. Congratulations on your first All-Star Game, Zach. Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky logs just 12 minutes as a starter
    Frank Kaminsky saw just 12 minutes as a starter on Wednesday, finishing with six points, three rebounds and one assist in a loss to the Hornets.

    Advice: With Kaminsky as Phoenix’s starting center, they have gone 9-1, so he should continue to start for the Suns. However, he’s only averaging 8.5 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.6 triples per game as a starter in 19.3 minutes a night, so he’s not worth your attention in the vast majority of leagues. Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Wendell Carter Jr. does it all in win over Wolves
    Wendell Carter Jr. hit 6-of-8 shots, a 3-pointer and 4-of-4 free throws for 17 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 32 minutes of Wednesday's OT win over Minnesota. 

    Advice: It's too bad he can't play the Wolves every night, but Carter has now double-doubled in two straight games and has four steals and five blocks in them. He was dropped in a ton of leagues when he went down with his quad injury in mid-January and if you picked him up when he returned in mid-February, he might just help you win your league. Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Miles Bridges scores 14 points with six rebounds
    Miles Bridges scored 14 points on 5-of-7 shooting (2-of-2 FT) Wednesday, to go with six rebounds, one assist and two triples in 27 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Bridges had been very quiet in his previous three outings, sandwiching an okay 10-point game between two five-point stinkers, but maybe he'll be able to get things going after tonight's efficient performance. He's hovering at late-round value on the season in 9-cat leagues with averages of 9.9 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.3 triples and 1.7 turnovers per contest on 47.7% shooting, but he's not necessarily a must-roster guy. Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Patrick Williams fills stat sheet on Wednesday
    Patrick Williams hit 5-of-8 shots, a 3-pointer and 2-of-2 free throws for 13 points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 27 minutes of Wednesday's overtime win over the Wolves.

    Advice: After too many stretches of inconsistency for many fantasy managers to handle, Williams has gotten hot over his last three games. His averages in those are 12.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.3 3-pointers while hitting 16-of-26 shots. He's not a must-add player, but he might be better than the guys at the end of your bench. Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Malik Monk erupts for 29 points over 28 minutes
    Malik Monk stayed hot on Wednesday, going 10-of-21 from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe for 29 points in 28 minutes off the bench in a win over Phoenix.

    Advice: Monk added five triples, two rebounds, three assists and one steal without committing a single turnover, and this was his second straight game with at least 20 points and four triples. Monk is a guy who can fall off at a moment's notice, but he's been rolling over the past two, which puts him on the radar as a speculative add in deep leagues. Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Terry Rozier doesn't play well in win
    Terry Rozier didn't have a great game during Wednesday's win over the Suns, scoring 10 points on 3-of-11 shooting to go with six rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointer, two steals and six turnovers across 36 minutes.

    Advice: At least Rozier went 3-of-3 from the line, but this was a fairly disappointing stat line from Scary Terry. He's been in a bit of a funk over the past two games, but maybe he'll be able to snap out of it with an up-tempo game against the Warriors on Friday. Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Cody Zeller injures left hip; doesn't return
    Cody Zeller exited Wednesday's game during the fourth quarter with a left hip contusion and did not return, finishing with 10 points, four rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks over 18 minutes.

    Advice: The Hornets did not a provide an immediate update after the game, so for now, we'll be considering Zeller questionable for Friday's matchup with Golden State. If he needs to miss time, Bismack Biyombo would likely return to the starting lineup, and he'd be worth a look if you need a low-end big. Bizzy B finished Wednesday's win with three points, 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and two turnovers in 26 minutes. Yesterday, 9:39 pm
  • Naz Reid scores 13 with 3 blocks in 22 minutes
    Naz Reid played 22 minutes off the bench and hit 6-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, four rebounds, a steal and three blocks in Wednesday's overtime loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: Reid's minutes have taken a hit with Karl-Anthony Towns back in action and his scoring has been a roller-coaster ride lately. But he's still somewhat productive, is a good shot blocker and might be worth a stash in case KAT is shut down at some point. KAT appears to be healthy and new coach Chris Finch wants to run the offense through him, but that still may not be enough to keep Towns motivated and getting it done for a team that has only won seven games this season, only three of which Towns has been a part of. If you've got a big roster and a free spot to stash Reid, it could pay off down the road. Yesterday, 9:36 pm
  • Karl-Anthony Towns plays well in 31 minutes
    Karl-Anthony Towns hit 10-of-20 shots and two 3-pointers for 24 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two steals and a block in 31 minutes of Wednesday's 133-126 overtime loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: KAT is back and playing well, but his team is 7-26 on the season, they've lost six straight games and 10 of their last 11, there's controversy about the hiring of coach Chris Finch, and D'Angelo Russell is out indefinitely. KAT simply can't be too psyched about going out there and busting his butt every night with nothing to play for after all of the COVID tragedy he's dealt with over the last year. Yes, they're now running the offense through him, but it's still not crazy to think he might shut it down at some point after the All-Star break. Maybe he'll stick it out and play the rest of the season, but if he makes you nervous, now's the time to offer KAT up in some trade proposals. Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Gordon Hayward (hand) scores 20 points in win
    Gordon Hayward (hand) went 7-of-17 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line for 20 points in Wednesday's win over the Suns.

    Advice: Hayward exited Monday’s game during the fourth quarter due to the hand injury, but he didn’t miss any additional game time, and his hand didn’t appear to give him any major issues tonight although he did go 0-of-5 from distance. It's his shooting hand, so it may be messing with his shot a little bit, but it's not bad enough to keep him off the floor. He added eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one turnover while he was out there, and managers can expect to have him available for Friday's game vs. the Warriors. Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Anthony Edwards hits 7-of-20 shots in loss
    Anthony Edwards hit 7-of-20 shots, three 3-pointers and 4-of-4 free throws for 21 points, nine rebounds, six assists and two steals in 37 minutes of Wednesday's 133-126 overtime loss to the Bulls. 

    Advice: Edwards' shooting slump is becoming legendary, as he's now hit just 19-of-73 shots (26 percent) over his last five games. Edwards' stat line was pretty nice tonight if you ignore the poor shooting, and his stroke actually looks good when you watch him play. But if he's crushing your team's field goal percentage, which he probably is, look to move him to someone looking for a scorer who doesn't care about the slump he's in. Yesterday, 9:24 pm
  • Lonzo Ball scores 12 points with full line in win
    Lonzo Ball contributed 12 points, six rebounds, eight assists, two triples, three steals and two turnovers across 35 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.

    Advice: Ball did appear to tweak something in his right hand early in the game, and while he played through it, that was something that was giving him some trouble on Sunday as well, so it's worth monitoring. Eric Bledsoe, who was held to just eight points his last time out, finished Wednesday's win with 11 points (5-of-11 FG, 1-of-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists, two steals and one turnover in 33 minutes. If the hand issue forces Ball to miss a game, Bledsoe and Nickeil Alexander-Walker will benefit. Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Steven Adams (ankle) double-doubles in return
    Steven Adams (ankle) posted a 14-point, 15-rebound double-double in his return from a two-game absence on Wednesday.

    Advice: This was an uncharacteristic stat line from Adams, who also brought three dimes, one steal, two swats and one turnover to the box score, but we'd like to see him do this again before getting too excited. Willy Hernangomez shifted back to the second unit with Adams back in action, and he only saw 16 minutes off the bench on his way to six points, five rebounds, three blocks and three turnovers. The blocks from Willy were nice, but that's typically not something he does, as he's only sent away a total of nine shots this season. Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Talen Horton-Tucker, Morris will start Wednesday
    Talen Horton-Tucker and Markieff Morris will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: They'll be replacing Wesley Matthews and Kyle Kuzma in the first unit tonight, and it'll be LeBron James, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Marc Gasol rounding out the first unit. This will be THT's first start this season, and the second of his career, so he could be someone to consider deploying as a DFS punt play tonight. Yesterday, 6:38 pm
  • Gordon Hayward (hand) will play Wednesday
    Gordon Hayward (bruised right hand) will play on Wednesday against the Suns. 

    Advice: Hayward left Monday's game early but it's great news he won't miss any additional time with the injury. It was especially worrisome that he injured the same hand he had surgery on in December. Everything should stay the same for the Hornets. Yesterday, 4:28 pm
  • Steven Adams (ankle) is available Wednesday
    Steven Adams (ankle) is available on Wednesday vs. Detroit.

    Advice: He's back after a two-game absence, but he'll need to win the trust back of fantasy managers with some very underwhelming production lately. Presumably, Willy Hernangomez will return to the bench and lose some streaming appeal. Yesterday, 4:11 pm
  • Gordon Hayward (hand) probable on Wednesday
    Gordon Hayward (bruised right hand) is probable to play on Wednesday night against the Suns.

    Advice: Hayward left Monday's game early after aggravating the same hand he missed time with a fracture in December. It's great news he's expected back without missing any time s this could've been much worse. Expect everything to stay the same in Charlotte. Yesterday, 10:19 am
  • Karl-Anthony Towns dishes career-high 11 assists
    Karl-Anthony Towns handed out a career-high 11 assists during Tuesday's loss to the Bucks, adding 26 points with eight rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal.

    Advice: KAT had 20 points in the first half before cooling off, but it was good to see him aggressive. He shot 10-of-19 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line, with his field goal attempts tying a season high. It was a very encouraging start under coach Chris Finch, who has said he wants KAT to be the "centerpiece" of Minnesota's offense. That may seem obvious, but it hasn't felt like it at times this season. A renewed push to operate through Towns can only benefit his fantasy managers, who have thus far suffered through a sub-par season strewn with DNPs. It's only one game, but the hiring of Finch appears to be helping. Tuesday, 8:01 pm
  • Anthony Edwards shoots 12-of-53 in past four games
    Anthony Edwards' slump continued on Tuesday with nine points on 3-of-13 shooting, though he did pick up six rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Edwards also tied his career high with four turnovers tonight, and failed to get to the free throw line for the first time since late January. He's averaging just 2.7 free throw attempts in February, as he's yet to truly leverage his size and athleticism to get easy points. He's shooting a combined 12-of-53 over his past four games, a heavily-weighted 22.6% that's tanking the category for fantasy managers. Consider benching him until he irons out his shot. Tuesday, 7:57 pm
  • Steven Adams (ankle) probable for Wednesday
    Steven Adams (ankle) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: It looks like Adams will be back in action tomorrow night following a two-game stint on the sidelines, which will shift Willy Hernangomez back to the second unit and irrelevancy in fantasy hoops. Check back for another update on Adams following tomorrow's shootaround. Tuesday, 2:06 pm
  • Gordon Hayward questionable w/ bruised right hand
    Gordon Hayward (right hand bruise) is questionable vs. the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: This is terrific news for Hayward, who took a hard fall on Monday and aggravated his right hand. It's the same hand that suffered an avulsion fracture in mid-December. The fact that he's questionable allows fantasy managers to breathe easier, and he could play in all three of Charlotte's remaining games this week. Crisis averted. Tuesday, 11:56 am
  • Steven Adams (right ankle) questionable Wednesday
    Steven Adams (right ankle) is questionable Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: The good news is that Adams practiced on Tuesday, so his status likely hinges on how his ankle reacts to the ramped-up activity. If he misses a third straight game, Hernangomez would remain a solid streaming play as the fill-in starter while Jaxson Hayes mops up extra frontcourt minutes off the bench. Tuesday, 11:26 am
  • LeBron James misses potential game-winning FT
    LeBron James scored 31 points with nine rebounds, 13 assists, a steal and eight turnovers in the Lakers' 127-124 overtime loss to the Wizards on Monday.

    Advice: With the Lakers down two and less than 10 seconds left, LeBron made a basket and got fouled but missed a free throw that could've ended the game in regulation. The Wizards would win the game in overtime, capping off a second-half double-digit come-from-behind victory to secure their fifth straight win. Bron's eight turnovers were a season-high and he shot just 2-of-10 from distance in 43 minutes and has played 218 more minutes than anyone else on the Lakers' roster (Dennis Schroder) and 291 more than the player with the third-most (Kyle Kuzma). Monday, 10:05 pm
  • Malik Monk scores 20 points with four triples
    Malik Monk came off the bench to hit 7-of-12 shots, four 3-pointers and 2-of-4 free throws for 20 points and six rebounds in Monday's ugly loss to the Jazz. 

    Advice: Gordon Hayward aggravated his right-hand injury tonight and will likely get an MRI, meaning Monk could get some extra run in the near future. He's been a roller coaster lately, scoring 20, 7, 23, 5 and 6 points in each of his last five games. But if Hayward is going to miss time, Monk will at least be worth a look in DFS, and might be worth grabbing in standard leagues, as well. Monday, 9:50 pm
  • Devin Booker hits 12-of-17 shots for 34 points
    Devin Booker hit 12-of-17 shots, 2-of-2 3-pointers and 8-of-8 free throws for 34 points, four rebounds and four assists in Monday's 132-100 win over the Blazers. 

    Advice: This was one of the more efficient games of Booker's career and the Suns stunned the Blazers tonight. Booker has scored in double figures in all but one game this season and the Suns are 10-2 in February, climbing into fourth place in the West. And Booker's strong play is a big reason why they're doing so well. Monday, 9:24 pm
  • Chris Paul hits 1-of-9 shots, but Suns win by 32
    Chris Paul hit just 1-of-9 shots for two points, three rebounds, nine assists and a steal in 25 minutes of Monday's easy 132-100 win over the Blazers. 

    Advice: It's hard to believe CP3 was this bad in such an easy win, but it happened. The good news is the Suns got their third straight win, improved to 20-10 on the season and CP3 played just 25 minutes. He also played just 22 minutes on Saturday and the rest he's getting is going to help him later in the season. The streaking Suns have somehow put together a 10-2 February and suddenly look like a team to reckon with in the West. We'll see if they can keep it going against the Hornets on Wednesday, as well as if they can keep their winning ways going forward. Paul should bounce back against the Hornets. Monday, 9:18 pm
  • Gordon Hayward done for night w/ right hand injury
    Gordon Hayward will not return Monday after aggravating a right hand injury. 

    Advice: We didn't like where the doctors were examining the hand (on top, in the middle) and we just have to hope he didn't break anything. Consider Hayward day-to-day for now and look for Malik Monk and Miles Bridges to pick up his slack if he ends up missing time. Hayward should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game at Phoenix. Monday, 8:16 pm
  • Gordon Hayward to locker room w/ right hand issue
    Gordon Hayward took a hard fall on Monday and injured his right hand, eventually going to the locker room to have it looked at. 

    Advice: Trainers were examining the top of his hand where metacarpal injuries take place and Hayward was in some pain. Hopefully it's just a sprain or a non-issue, but fantasy managers will want to keep a close eye on this one. He was playing well, hitting 9-of-15 shots and a 3-pointer for 21 points, three boards, two assists, two steals and a block before leaving in the fourth quarter after 26 minutes. Monday, 7:59 pm
  • Wendell Carter Jr. drops 18 points w/ 13 boards
    Wendell Carter Jr. took advantage of a small Rockets lineup on Monday, recording 18 points, 13 rebounds, an assist, two steals and three blocks in the win.

    Advice: He shot 8-of-14 from the floor and 2-of-2 from the line in 29 minutes en route to his fourth double-digit scoring game of the month in five tries. The double-double was his first since Jan. 15 and the center is now shooting 58% from the floor over the past week and has seven blocks during that stretch, too. WCJ is available in 24% of Yahoo leagues and should be rostered in standard and deep leagues. Monday, 7:32 pm
  • Patrick Williams boasts 14/7/1/1/1 line Monday
    Patrick Williams was productive on Monday night vs. Houston, scoring 14 points with seven boards, an assist, a steal and a block.

    Advice: In 34 minutes as a starter, Williams went 6-of-8 from the field and 2-of-4 from 3-point range in the Bulls' win. It was his second straight game with at least 11 points and his third in the last four as the rookie has faired well with Otto Porter (back) sidelined. Hang onto him in deep leagues until OPJ returns and then weigh your options from there on out. Monday, 7:25 pm
  • LeBron, Kuzma & Morris active Monday vs. Wizards
    LeBron James, Kyle Kuzma and Markieff Morris are all good to go on Monday night against the Wizards.

    Advice: All three of the Lakers forwards were considered either probable or questionable but they will suit up as LA looks to end a two-game skid to the Wizards which have won four in a row. Monday, 5:02 pm
  • Karl-Anthony Towns double-doubles in another loss
    Karl-Anthony Towns registered his ninth double-double of the season on Sunday with 27 points and 15 rebounds in a loss to the Knicks.

    Advice: KAT finished 9-of-18 from the field and 6-of-6 from the stripe to go with three triples, four dimes, one steal, three swats and three turnovers across 31 minutes, but the end result was yet another loss for Minnesota, putting them at 7-24 on the year. The Wolves fired head coach Ryan Saunders after the game, but Towns spoke like a guy who didn't plan on going anywhere during his postgame media availability, saying: "If you want to build a legacy, we gotta win. I want to build my legacy here. I want to win with the Wolves and gonna do everything I possibly can to step-by-step, brick-by-brick building something and a culture here that's gonna stand for a long time." Sunday, 8:05 pm
  • Lonzo posts 16/6/4/2 in win over Celtics
    Lonzo Ball hit 5-of-11 shots, 3-of-6 3-pointers, and 3-of-4 free throws for 16 points, four assists, six rebounds, two steals, and six turnovers in a win over the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: Ball knocked down three 3-point shots, continuing his hot streak from distance. He made 11 combined 3-pointers in his two prior games. He did commit six turnovers but closed out regulation and overtime ahead of Eric Bledsoe. That's noteworthy as the Pels approach a trade deadline where Ball could be moved. Sunday, 4:01 pm
  • Steven Adams (ankle) ruled out for Sunday
    Steven Adams (right ankle sprain) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics. 

    Advice: Adams will miss his second straight game due to the ankle injury, which he suffered Wednesday night. As a result, Willy Hernangomez will figure more prominently in the Pelicans' rotation and is a worthwhile streaming option. Hernangomez grabbed 13 rebounds in Friday's loss to the Suns. Jaxon Hayes will back him up, but is more of a wild card when it comes to fantasy production. Sunday, 11:47 am
  • Steven Adams (ankle) a game-time decision for Sun.
    Steven Adams (sprained right ankle) is considered to be a game-time decision for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics. 

    Advice: Pelicans coach Stan Van Gundy said during his pregame media availability that he was still unsure about Adams' status for the game. With the veteran center sitting out Saturday's practice, it's likely that a decision won't be made until after early warmups. Should Adams be limited or unable to play, Willy Hernangomez stands to benefit greatly when it comes to playing time. Sunday, 10:47 am
  • Devin Booker drops 23 points in 26 minutes
    Devin Booker led the Suns to a 128-97 blowout win over the Grizzlies on Saturday, finishing with 23 points, five boards and five assists.

    Advice: Book went 7-of-13 from the floor, 5-of-7 from distance and 4-of-4 from the line in 26 minutes in a game that was over before it started. Memphis didn't have a couple of starters leaving a bunch of young Grizzlies players to face off against one of the best defensive teams in the league. But it was a solid night for Book who's putting up top-55 numbers in 9-cat over the last two weeks. Saturday, 9:51 pm
  • Miles Bridges nets 19 points & 4 triples in win
    Miles Bridges bounced back after two quiet games, netting 19 points with six boards, one assist, one steal and one block on Saturday.

    Advice: He made 6-of-7 field goals, 4-of-5 triples and 3-of-3 free throws in 28 minutes of the Suns' blowout win over the Grizzlies. He scored more tonight than he did in the last two games combined, and despite making four 3-pointers tonight, he's shooting just 30% from distance since Feb. 1. The inconsistency has been frustrating, but when he's knocking down triples and getting in passing lanes, he puts up good numbers and is producing top-60 numbers in 9-cat this season. Saturday, 9:29 pm
  • LeBron James shoots 7-of-21 in loss to Heat
    LeBron James struggled to make shots against the Heat on Saturday and finished 19 points, nine rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one block.

    Advice: Bron shot 33% from the field, missing 14 of his 21 field goal attempts in a game the Lakers lost by two points. He did, however, make a great defensive play at the end game to set up Alex Caruso for a potential game-tying shot, which AC missed. And LeBron looked tired throughout the game, which could be an effect of not having Anthony Davis and Dennis Schroder to help carry the offense. He'll have one day to rest before LA takes on the Wizards followed by a Western Conference slate vs. the Jazz, Blazers and Dubs. Saturday, 8:57 pm
  • Zach LaVine torches Kings for 38 points in win
    Zach LaVine shot 15-of-20 from the field and 5-of-5 from the foul line in Saturday’s win over the Kings, posting a line of 38 points, four rebounds, three assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

    Advice: February has been LaVine’s month, as he now has seven 30-point games this month. And players and coaches around the league are taking notice. "To me, he's probably the frontrunner right now for Most Improved,” Kings coach Luke Walton said before Saturday’s game. “And that's saying something because he was a really good player last year. He's playing at an All-Star level the way he's scoring the ball at all three levels.” Providing 2nd-round value in both 8- and 9-cat formats over the last month, LaVine has been a 1st-round player in the latter for the season as a whole. Saturday, 8:34 pm
  • Gordon Hayward posts 13/7/1/2 line vs. GSW
    Gordon Hayward shot 5-of-11 from the field in Saturday’s win over the Warriors, accounting for 13 points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Hayward was considered to be probable for the game due to lower back spasms, but he was able to take on his usual workload. But after scoring 20 points or more in nine games last month, Charlotte’s big offseason signing has been comparatively quiet in February. He has scored 19 points or less in each of the Hornets’ last four games, shooting 38.9% from the field. This isn’t a major concern, as Hayward is providing 3rd-round value for the season, but over the last two weeks he has been well outside of the top-100 in 9-cat formats. Saturday, 7:41 pm
  • Terry Rozier caps 36-point night with game-winner
    Terry Rozier played 39 minutes in Saturday’s win over the Warriors, tallying 36 points (12-of-19 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), three rebounds, four assists, one steal and eight 3-pointers.

    Advice: Rozier absolutely went off during the fourth quarter, as he scored 20 points including Charlotte’s final 10. And he scored the final four points of the game, following up two free throws (thanks to Draymond Green getting ejected) with a fadeaway jumper as time expired. Rozier has now scored 33 points or more in four straight, the longest such run of his career to date. And Saturday’s game-winner was his first as a Hornet. To this point in the season he has been one of the biggest surprises in fantasy basketball, ranking just outside of the top-30 in both 8- and 9-cat formats (Yahoo 9-cat ADP of 123). Saturday, 7:40 pm
  • Gordon Hayward, P.J. Washington to start Saturday
    LaMelo Ball, Terry Rozier, Gordon Hayward, P.J. Washington and Cody Zeller will start Saturday's game vs. the Warriors. 

    Advice: Hayward, who has been dealing with back spasms recently, was considered to be probable for Saturday's game. He's good to go without any restrictions, and the same goes for Washington (health and safety protocols). Both should be slotted into fantasy lineups as they normally would, with Hayward providing 3rd-round value in both 8- and 9-cat formats. Saturday, 4:41 pm
  • Steven Adams 'feeling better,' doesn't practice
    Steven Adams (right ankle sprain) said that he is "feeling better," but did not take part in Saturday's practice. 

    Advice: Adams was held out of Friday's loss to the Suns, as he sprained his ankle in the game prior. And he is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. Boston. If Adams cannot play, Willy Hernangomez is the player whose minutes/fantasy prospects will be impacted the most. Saturday, 2:20 pm
  • Lonzo Ball scores 21 with season-high 12 assists
    Lonzo Ball handed out a season-high 12 dimes vs. the Suns on Friday, adding 21 points, three steals and two blocks in 36 minutes of action.

    Advice: This was Ball's first double-double of the season and he tied his highest combined steals and blocks (he had five swipes back on Dec. 27). He's scored 21 points in back-to-back games and is 11-of-22 from deep in those contests, so all is well for fantasy purposes. In reality, Ball's strong play hasn't prevented the Pelicans from losing five of their past six games to dip to 12-17 (12th in the West). Brandon Ingram scored 25 points tonight, Zion Williamson added 23 points with five boards and four dimes, but as usual it was lousy defense that spoiled the fun -- New Orleans was destroyed in the fourth quarter, 41-12. Ball will look to stay hot (and earn a much-needed win) vs. the visiting Celtics on Sunday. Friday, 8:49 pm
  • Karl-Anthony Towns posts 19/13/4 line vs. TOR
    Karl-Anthony Towns shot an efficient 8-of-13 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line for 19 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one triple in 31 minutes vs. the Raptors on Friday.

    Advice: He hasn't been overly aggressive with just 14.9 shot attempts per game since returning six games ago, yet he's still the No. 5 ranked player in 9-cat during that span due to his complete game. You have to wonder if the wrist is the reason he's not being as adventurous on offense, as he said on Wednesday that it was still causing him some problems. "It still is what it is," KAT said. "It's still not recovered whatsoever." With the Wolves hoping to keep their protected top-3 pick, they could easily dial him back down the stretch to the dismay of his fantasy managers. Friday, 8:46 pm
  • Chris Paul dishes season-high 19 dimes in road win
    Chris Paul handed out 19 assists during an impressive win in New Orleans on Friday, adding 15 points with four rebounds, three 3-pointers, two steals and one block in 31 minutes.

    Advice: CP3 refuses to slow down and his devastatingly efficient play tonight left him two assists shy of his career-high 21 dimes from November 2007. He'll turn 36 years old in May but you can't tell by watching him play the game, as he's cruising along with top-30 fantasy value on the basis of efficient 17.2 points per game, 1.5 treys, 8.2 dimes, 4.7 boards and 1.2 steals. He has the Suns in a tie with Portland for the No. 4 seed and shows no signs of slowing down, let alone sitting out games. Fantasy managers who drafted CP3 are being richly rewarded for their faith in the future Hall of Famer. Friday, 8:43 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky scores 17 points in 16 minutes
    Frank Kaminsky was back in the Suns' starting lineup on Friday, posting 17 points on 6-of-8 shooting with five 3-pointers, two rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes vs. New Orleans. 

    Advice: As pointed out by beat writer Duane Rankin, it was Kaminsky who started each of the Suns' six victories during their recent seven-game homestand. The one loss came when Kaminsky vanished from the rotation for matchup purposes and Jae Crowder started. Head coach Monty Williams went back to what was working tonight, and another win ensued. Crowder was also red-hot with 20 points in 29 minutes off the bench, so this position battle shows no signs of abating. Friday, 8:43 pm
  • Edwards struggles but throws down monster jam
    Anthony Edwards only hit 3-of-14 shots vs. the Raptors on Friday for seven points, four assists, three rebounds, two steals, one block and one turnover in 34 minutes. 

    Advice: Poor shooting aside, Edwards showed off his ridiculous athleticism in what may end up being the dunk of the season (link below). This was Edwards' second poor shooting performance after going 3-of-15 from the field in his previous outing, but when he finds his touch his fantasy value could ramp up quickly because he's making strides as a playmaker and the defensive stats have been solid too. It's just a matter of time before he puts it all together, but if you truly want to optimize the rookie in fantasy you should be punting FG%. Friday, 8:38 pm
  • Wendell Carter Jr. scores 15 points in 25 minutes
    Wendell Carter Jr. scored the Bulls' first eight points on Friday, but cooled off to finish with 15 points on 7-of-13 shooting, four rebounds and one assist in 25 minutes.

    Advice: This was WCJ's 10th consecutive game with double-digit scoring. That's a career-best streak and it's a great sign for the Bulls' 21-year-old center, with coach Billy Donovan saying before tonight's game that he needs more consistency from his young players. Carter Jr.'s minutes have hovered in the mid-20s since his return from a bruised right quad this week, but he's shooting extremely well (68.8% FGs, 70.0% FTs) with enough boards and defensive stats to vie for top-100 value. He was absolutely helpless vs. Joel Embiid tonight, but we can't blame him there and he'll only get better as the season progresses. Friday, 7:20 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky starts, Jae Crowder to bench
    Frank Kaminsky will start ahead of Jae Crowder vs. the Pelicans on Friday.

    Advice: Kaminsky was out of the rotation vs. Brooklyn on Tuesday, with coach Monty Williams citing matchups as the reason for his absence. He's been a sporadic source of deep-league value even as a starter, so deploy him sparingly if at all. Friday, 4:41 pm
  • Steven Adams (ankle) will not play Friday vs. Suns
    Stan Van Gundy said center Steven Adams (ankle) will not play on Friday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: He's officially been ruled out after tweaking his ankle on Wednesday. Willy Hernangomez picked up the bulk of his minutes and finished with 11 points and 17 boards. He'll likely get the starting nod and is a good streaming option until Adams returns. Friday, 3:18 pm
  • Gordon Hayward (lower back) probable for Saturday
    Gordon Hayward (lower back) is probable for Saturday's game vs. Golden State.

    Advice: Hayward was probable prior to Sunday's game before ultimately being ruled out. The difference this time is that he's had nearly an extra week of rest due to Charlotte having two games postponed this week for contact tracing. Managers can tentatively get him into active lineups, and as long as he makes it through shootaround without a setback he should be ready to go. Friday, 2:08 pm
  • Markieff Morris sprains right ankle in loss
    Markieff Morris sprained his right ankle on Thursday and while he was deemed well enough to return, he didn't make it back into the game. 

    Advice: He didn't score and played just 10 minutes, and will be iffy for Saturday's game against the Heat. However, he's not a fantasy option in most leagues, so the impacts of the potential injury should be minimal. Thursday, 10:30 pm
  • LeBron James hits 35,000 points in chase for No. 1
    LeBron James scored his 35,000th point on Thursday and finished with 32 points, eight rebounds, seven assists and a 3-pointer on 14-of-23 shooting in a loss to the Nets. 

    Advice: If our calculations are correct, LeBron is now sitting on 35,017 points and he's chasing only Karl Malone (36,928) and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38,387). LeBron is clearly within striking distance of both players and got to 35K faster than both of them. It will all depend on how long he decides to keep playing, but given that he can see the record at the end of the tunnel, we're guessing he's going to keep going until he gets it. Thursday, 10:16 pm
  • Williams says Kaminsky's DNP was due to matchups
    Monty Williams said that Frank Kaminsky's DNP-CD in Tuesday's loss to the Nets was due to matchups.

    Advice: Kaminsky had been starting, but he went to the bench on Tuesday and didn't play at all with Dario Saric getting all the backup center minutes. His minutes were already trending in the wrong direction prior to the DNP, and it doesn't look like he has a guaranteed spot in the rotation, so he's not a great target in most formats. Thursday, 3:11 pm
  • Steven Adams (ankle) doubtful Friday vs. Suns
    Steven Adams is doubtful to play on Friday against the Suns with a right ankle sprain.

    Advice: Adams twisted his ankle after playing just 10 minutes on Wednesday and didn't return. Willy Hernangomez replaced him and started the second half. Hernangomez is absolutely worth scooping up before Friday's game if he's available as he scored 11 points (one 3-pointer) with 17 rebounds in 29 minutes in Adams's place. Thursday, 2:27 pm
  • Steven Adams leaves early after injuring ankle
    Steven Adams played through a back injury on Wednesday but then twisted his right ankle and went straight to the locker room, finishing with two points and three rebounds in 10 minutes. 

    Advice: He never returned and Willy Hernangomez started the second half for the Pelicans and finished with 11 points, 17 rebounds and a 3-pointer. If Adams is going to miss time, Hernangomez will become a hot pickup, as he's been playing pretty well of late. We should know more about Adams' injury on Thursday. Wednesday, 10:33 pm
  • Zach LaVine powers Bulls to win with 37 points
    Zach LaVine powered the Bulls to a 105-102 win over the Pistons on Wednesday with 37 points, five rebounds, five assists, four treys, three steals and five turnovers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: LaVine helped Chicago overcome a 25-point deficit in the win, and he was absolutely locked in, going 14-of-22 from the field and 5-of-7 from the stripe. He's hitting career-highs across the board in his age-25 season, so there's a decent chance he'll be making an appearance at the All-Star game this year. Wednesday, 9:50 pm
  • Wendell Carter Jr. scores 18 points w/ two blocks
    Wendell Carter Jr. went 7-of-9 from the field and 4-of-6 from the stripe for 18 points, three rebounds, one steal and two blocks over 27 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.

    Advice: WCJ is averaging just 0.7 steals and 0.6 swats per game on the year, so it was nice to see him come through with the defensive stats tonight. He did come off the bench to begin the second half behind Thaddeus Young, but that may have been a move to conserve his minutes, as he acknowledged he felt winded in his return to action on Monday. Young fouled out in 24 minutes, finishing with nine points (4-of-10 FG, 1-of-4 FT), 10 rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one block and three turnovers in the win. Wednesday, 9:42 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson cools off, scores 18 in win
    Jordan Clarkson hit 7-of-23 shots and 4-of-12 3-pointers for 18 points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals in Wednesday's win over the Clippers.

    Advice: Clarkson went bonkers on Monday, scoring 40 points on 13-of-20 shooting with eight triples, but couldn't rekindle the magic tonight. But he still put up a decent stat line despite the poor shooting and has somehow scored in double figures in 24 straight games and in all but one game this season, despite coming off the bench. He should be rostered everywhere. Wednesday, 9:24 pm
  • Rudy Gobert goes for 23 & 20 in win over Clippers
    Rudy Gobert went off for 23 points, 20 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block, hitting 8-of-12 shots and 7-of-8 free throws in an easy win over the Clippers on Wednesday. 

    Advice: This was his second 20-20 game of the season and the boards tied his season high for the big man. Gobert has double-doubled in seven of his last eight games and he'll try to keep it going against the same Clippers on Friday night. Obviously, he looks like a great DFS play for that one after tonight's explosion. Wednesday, 9:04 pm
  • Naz Reid goes for 18 points, nine boards Wednesday
    Naz Reid played just 18 minutes off the bench but still racked up 18 points, nine rebounds, three assists, a steal, three blocks and two 3-pointers on 8-of-14 shooting in Wednesday's overtime loss. 

    Advice: Reid hasn't been doing much since Karl-Anthony Towns returned to action but was brilliant in his limited run tonight. He had just 10 points and one rebound in his previous game, and two points and two boards in the game prior, so tonight may have been a fluke. Just keep an eye on him in case he earned more minutes with his big game tonight. Wednesday, 8:32 pm
  • Karl-Anthony Towns goes for 30 & 10 in OT loss
    Karl-Anthony Towns hit 8-of-19 shots, two 3-pointers and 12-of-12 free throws for a season-high 30 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 37 minutes on Wednesday. 

    Advice: This was KAT's fifth 20-10 game of the season and his first 30-10, which isn't bad considering he's only appeared in nine games thus far. This was also his first game to shoot more than eight free throws and he's now missed just three free throws on the year. Wednesday, 8:19 pm
  • Chris Paul drops 29 points on 60% shooting clip
    Chris Paul had a solid game vs. the Nets on Tuesday, scoring 29 points with four rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 35 minutes.

    Advice: CP3 knocked down 12-of-20 shots and 4-of-8 from deep, scoring 16 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter as the Suns blew a 24-point second-half lead. It was a terrible game for Phoenix but a good one for Paul who only scored 12 on Sunday and easily passed that tonight. He's already topped 25 points three times in February after only doing so twice in January and is producing top-20 numbers in 9-cat over the past two weeks. Tuesday, 10:55 pm
  • Anthony Edwards nets career-high 28 pts vs. Lakers
    Anthony Edwards scored a season-high 28 points on Tuesday vs. the Lakers, adding seven rebounds, five assists, a steal and two blocks in the loss.

    Advice: The Wolves came up short, but Edwards had himself a night, making 10-of-20 shots and five 3-pointers including one over LeBron James (video below) in what was the best game of his rookie season. He's already been playing well since entering the starting unit, posting a nightly 17.6 points and five rebounds on 44/36/78 shooting splits. But now that D'Angelo Russell (knee surgery) is going to be out for 4-6 weeks, Edwards will have a chance to put up big numbers on a regular basis. Swoop him off of waivers if he's available in your league. Tuesday, 9:08 pm
  • LeBron James drops 30 pts & 13 rebs in Lakers' win
    LeBron James had it going on Tuesday vs. the Wolves, finishing with 30 points, 13 rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 38 minutes.

    Advice: He had an efficient shoot night against Minnesota, knocking down 13-of-20 shots, 3-of-4 free throws with a 3-pointer in a 112-104 win. Surprisingly, it was only his fifth game of the season, too, but there's more to come now that Anthony Davis (calf) is out for at least a few weeks. Expect boosted Bron numbers until at least the All-Star break and consider selling high in a 2-for-1 swap if you're looking for depth. Tuesday, 8:26 pm
  • Wendell Carter Jr. not on strict minute limit
    Wendell Carter Jr. isn't on a strict minute limit but coach Billy Donovan said the "goal" is to keep him around 20 minutes.

    Advice: “Anywhere from 18 to 22, 24, somewhere in there,” Donovan said. Carter's conditioning is a work in progress and he doesn't expect any major gains in the coming days. "Next game, it may go up one or two minutes,” Carter said. “And then next game, one or two minutes. So it’s just based off how I feel and how fast I can get back in shape." He looked good in 21 minutes, scoring 11 points with nine rebounds, and fantasy managers' patience is about to pay off. Tuesday, 10:59 am
  • Rudy Gobert attempts season-low three shots in win
    Rudy Gobert was quiet on offense vs. the Sixers on Monday, finishing with 11 points, nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal.

    Advice: He only took three shots in a game in which Joel Embiid (back) didn't play, going 3-of-3 and 5-of-8 from the line. But Gobert still made his presence felt by chipping with other stats and extending his streak with at least two blocks to eight games. The Stifle Tower ranks second in swats per game (2.8) behind only Myles Turner (3.4) this season. Monday, 9:19 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson erupts for 40 points in 29 minutes
    Jordan Clarkson was on fire vs. the Sixers on Monday, netting 40 points with an assist and two steals in 29 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: To say he was feeling it might be an understatement. Clarkson went 13-of-20 from the floor with eight 3-pointers, which tied a franchise record, and made 6-of-7 free throws in less than 30 minutes of action. He also became the first Jazz player in the last 30 seasons to score 40 points off the bench, per StatMuse. A tremendous bounce-back game after scoring just 11 points on Saturday. Monday, 8:51 pm
  • Wendell Carter Jr. plays well in return for Bulls
    Wendell Carter Jr. started and played 21 minutes on Monday, hitting 4-of-7 shots for 11 points, nine rebounds and a steal in an overtime win against the Pacers. 

    Advice: This was his first appearance since Jan. 18 and he looked pretty good, all things considered. WCJ isn't a must-have player right now, but if you're in a need of a big man he might be one of the better ones sitting on your waiver wire. Monday, 6:48 pm
  • Patrick Williams plays through knee injury
    Patrick Williams left Monday's game with an apparent knee injury but was able to play through it, finishing with just seven points, nine rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer on 2-of-10 shooting. 

    Advice: Williams got 27 minutes and had plenty of opportunities but just couldn't get it going. Consistency has been an issue for Williams this season but it would not be surprising to see him figure things out and come up with a big second half. Monday, 6:45 pm
  • Wendell Carter Jr. (thigh) will play on Monday
    Wendell Carter Jr. (thigh) will play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He'll be back in action following an 11-game absence, so he could have his minutes monitored tonight. Still, he's safe to activate in all season-long settings, and his return will result in fewer minutes for Thaddeus Young and Daniel Gafford. Monday, 2:28 pm
  • Shams: Bulls interested in Lonzo Ball
    The Bulls are interested in trading for Lonzo Ball, Shams Charania reports. 

    Advice: They are one of a number of teams who will emerge as suitors for the PG. The Pelicans recently put Ball on the block, but he responded with some really strong play and it's unclear if their stance has changed. There has been no discussions between the Bulls and Pelicans yet, but this is a pretty clear sign that they don't have a lot of confidence in Coby White as their franchise point guard due to his struggles as a playmaker. Monday, 9:42 am
  • LeBron James flirts with triple-double in loss
    LeBron James flirted with a triple-double in Sunday's loss to the Nuggets, tallying 22 points, 10 rebounds, nine dimes, one block and one turnover in 31 minutes.

    Advice: LBJ finished with just one turnover was nice, but he was also 0-of-5 from distance and finished 4-of-7 at the stripe (9-of-18 from the floor). Anthony Davis aggravated his Achilles injury tonight and will likely need to skip at least a handful of games moving forward, meaning that King James is going to have to shoulder a heavy load while his superstar teammate is out. The Lakers came into tonight's game riding a seven-game win streak, but after pulling out impressive come-from-behind wins in their past four games, their luck ran out vs. Denver. Feb 14, 10:09 pm
  • Mikal Bridges bounces back for 21 points in win
    Mikal Bridges hit 7-of-13 shots, 3-of-5 3-pointers, and 4-of-4 free throws for 21 points, one assist, five rebounds, two steals, and two turnovers in a win over the Magic on Sunday.

    Advice: Bridges bounced back from a rough four-point night with just one made field goal on Saturday. He's had a tough month but Sunday was a bright spot with three makes from range and 21 points. He's only made nine threes in eight games this month but don't give up on him. He'll get through this poor shooting patch. Feb 14, 8:34 pm
  • Chris Paul posts 12/9/6 in win
    Chris Paul hit 5-of-9 shots and 2-of-3 3-pointers for 12 points, nine assists, six rebounds, two steals, and no turnovers in a win over the Magic on Sunday.

    Advice: This was Paul's second-lowest point total of the month but that's probably because he didn't need to do much in this one. It was that lopsided and he only played 28 minutes. Still, months away from turning 36, he remains a top-30 fantasy player. Managers will appreciate his two steals, pair of 3-pointers and no turnovers from this one. Feb 14, 8:21 pm
  • Devin Booker scores 27 with six assists in win
    Devin Booker hit 10-of-16 shots, 1-of-3 3-pointers, and 6-of-7 free throws for 27 points, six assists, four rebounds, and no turnovers in a win over the Magic on Sunday.

    Advice: Booker outscored the entire Magic team, 17-16, in the first quarter and that should say all you really need to know about this one. He's been unbelievable as of late, shooting better than 60% over his last two games (24-of-39) for 63 points. His 27 points on Sunday were his lowest total in four games. Disappointingly, his 3-point total hasn't risen as much as you'd expect someone routinely scoring 30 points would but it's hard to complain about his output. He's averaging 4.3 assists this month to boot. Feb 14, 8:07 pm
  • Malik Monk scores 23 points w/ extras vs. Spurs
    Malik Monk popped in 31 bench minutes on Sunday, scoring 23 points on 7-of-13 shooting with five 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists.

    Advice: Monk didn't have any defensive stats and he committed three turnovers, but this was still a strong line for Charlotte's sixth man. He was leaned on more than usual with three rotation players absent and Devonte' Graham going down at halftime with knee soreness. Monk should be worth streaming if Graham misses time, so keep an eye on Charlotte's injury report going into a three-game week. Feb 14, 7:33 pm
  • Miles Bridges quiet in 37 minutes as starter
    Miles Bridges was quiet in 37 minutes as a starter on Sunday, scoring five points on 2-of-5 shooting with six boards, two assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers.

    Advice: Gordon Hayward (lower back) and P.J. Washington (health and safety protocols) were both out of commission tonight. That gave Bridges his second start of the season, but he was an afterthought offensively and had his streak of double-doubles snapped after four games. He's been hovering on the periphery of 12-team value all season, and nothing about his role suggests that's going to change. Feb 14, 7:32 pm
  • Terry Rozier scores 33 points w/ full line Sunday
    Terry Rozier lit up the Spurs on Sunday with 33 points on 14-of-29 shooting, seven boards, three assists, two steals and one block in 40 minutes of action.

    Advice: Rozier scored 41 points on Friday and had 16 points in the first quarter alone tonight, but his pyrotechnics weren't enough to get the victory. In his first five games since returning from an ankle injury on Feb. 5, Rozier averaged 26.8 points on 57.0% shooting, including a 22-of-44 mark from downtown. He shows no signs of cooling off in what is shaping up to be a career year. Feb 14, 7:28 pm
  • Karl-Anthony Towns franchise leader in 3-pointers
    Karl-Anthony Towns became the Wolves' all-time leader in 3-pointers made on Sunday, hitting a pair of triples to finish with 20 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal in 33 minutes.

    Advice: This was only KAT's seventh game of the season, having missed extended time with a left wrist injury followed by coronavirus. When he has been on the court, he's been typically stellar with 21.8 points per game, 2.2 triples, 11.3 boards, 3.7 assists, 2.0 blocks and 0.8 steals. He's scoring efficiently (47.9% FGs, 96.3% FTs) and is putting up those gaudy numbers in a sustainable 32.4 minutes per game, which is right where coach Ryan Saunders wants to keep his starters. The Wolves won tonight but their 7-20 record is still rock-bottom in the league. Hopefully they can string together some wins to stay in the hunt for the No. 10 seed and qualify for the NBA's new play-in tournament. Feb 14, 7:14 pm
  • Lonzo Ball struggles with turnovers in loss
    Lonzo Ball struggled with turnovers in Sunday's loss to the Pistons, throwing away the ball five times while only handing out three dimes.

    Advice: It wasn't a total disaster for Ball, as he went 5-of-11 from the field for 13 points, three triples and four boards over 31 minutes, but the turnovers played a role in the loss and he didn't bring any defensive statistics to the table while he was out there. The Pelicans have now dropped three straight, and their 3-point defense has been atrocious, as they've been allowing teams to shoot 53% from distance during the three-game skid. Feb 14, 6:41 pm
  • Wendell Carter Jr. (quad) questionable Monday
    Wendell Carter Jr. (bruised right quad) is questionable for Monday's game vs. Indiana.

    Advice: WCJ's status likely hinges on how his leg responds after taking some contact during Sunday's practice. He's been out nearly a month and may have some limitations when he returns. If he is cleared for Monday, he'll benefit from a four-game week that doesn't include any back-to-back sets. Feb 14, 2:46 pm
  • Miles Bridges starts Sunday w/ Gordon Hayward out
    Miles Bridges will start Sunday's game in place of Gordon Hayward (lower back).

    Advice: Bridges is rolling right now and he'll enjoy an expanded role without both Hayward and P.J. Washington (health and safety protocols) in this matchup vs. the Spurs. Fire him up in all fantasy leagues. Feb 14, 2:26 pm
  • Gordon Hayward (back) ruled out Sunday vs. Spurs
    Gordon Hayward (lower back discomfort) has been ruled out of Sunday's contest vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: He was downgraded today after previously being listed as probable, meaning he likely went through a morning shootaround and wasn't feeling good. That and the Hornets don't want to risk an injury to their $128 million man. Consider him day-to-day for now and look for Miles Bridges to start and Malik Monk to play some extra minutes with Hayward and the Martin twins all sidelined. Feb 14, 12:52 pm
  • Wendell Carter Jr. (quad) making strides in rehab
    Wendell Carter Jr. (bruised right quad) was able to take some contact during Sunday's practice, according to Bulls coach Billy Donovan.

    Advice: Carter has been sidelined since January 20 due to the serious quad bruise, which was expected to keep him out for up to four weeks. While he still isn't a full go in practice, the Bulls' starting center is making strides. "He's certainly moving closer and closer to playing," Donovan said after Sunday's practice. While Carter could be on a minutes limit once cleared, his return would eliminate Daniel Gafford's already-low fantasy value. Feb 14, 10:24 am
  • Donovan Mitchell posts 26/3/2/1 as Jazz win again
    Donovan Mitchell led the Jazz to a 112-94 win vs. the Heat on Saturday, logging 26 points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal.

    Advice: The Jazz won and Mitchell was pretty good, that's what counts. But he shot 9-of-21 from the floor and 3-of-12 from deep on a night when Utah as a team went 12-of-46 from beyond the arc. It was their worst 3-point performance of the season and they still won by almost 20 points. That's how good this Jazz group is, and Mitchell is the catalyst. Feb 13, 9:34 pm
  • Bojan Bogdanovic registers 19 points on 54% clip
    Bojan Bogdanovic made 7-of-13 field goals and two 3-pointers on Saturday, finishing with 19 points, six rebounds and three assists in the win.

    Advice: After scoring just nine points on a 3-of-10 shooting night on Friday, Bogy made 54% of his shots vs. the Heat as the Jazz cruised to their seventh straight win. During that win streak, he's averaging 18.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists and three 3-pointers on 49/45/100 shooting splits. Yeah, he's 23-of-23 from the line in February and ranks inside the top-60 in 9-cat this month. Feb 13, 9:22 pm
