  • Demetrius Jackson was signed by BOS on Wednesday December 7. Rotoworld.com 55 minutes ago
  • Alex Len fouls out yet again
    Alex Len fouled out in 16 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday with nine points, two rebounds and two blocks.

    Advice: That's two foul outs in a row for Len. The Suns are playing Tyson Chandler more than expected, which has caused Len's playing time to slide to 18.0 minutes per game over his last three. He could still have some value for his 1.5 blocks per game on the year and solid percentages, but Len is trending down a bit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:45 pm
  • Brandon Jennings starts w/ Rose (back) out
    Brandon Jennings started in place of Derrick Rose (sore lower back) on Wednesday, posting 16 points, four rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

    Advice: This was Rose's first DNP of the season and it's unclear how long he'll be sidelined, though an MRI came back clean and he's listed as day-to-day. Jennings can be found on most 12-team waiver wires, so owners in need of a cheap PG should keep him in mind for temporary value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Dragan Bender doesn't score
    Dragan Bender did not score in 11 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday, but he had three rebounds and one steal.

    Advice: The Suns continue to give Bender a look in the rotation. He's played seven games in a row, but has been very quiet on the stat sheet with 3.2 points per game on the year. Before the game, coach Earl Watson said Bender has gained eight pounds of muscle since the start of the year, so we have our first in-season muscle watch in a while. Bender has very little value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • DeAndre Liggins starts w/ J.R. Smith out
    DeAndre Liggins started Wednesday's road win in New York, which he finished with six points, two 3-pointers, two boards, two assists and one steal in 21 minutes.

    Advice: J.R. Smith (knee) was out due to a knee injury he sustained on Monday, though X-rays were negative and he's considered day-to-day. Liggins' start was designed mostly to keep the Cavs' second unit intact, and he's not an appealing short-term option. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Sam Dekker bounces back w/ all-around line
    Sam Dekker bounced back on Wednesday with 12 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 23 minutes vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: The Rockets have won four straight games and Dekker's contributions are a subtle reason for their success. He's emerged as a favorite reserve of Mike D'Antoni's and if you ignore Monday's quiet game, he's averaging 12.5 points, 1.0 threes, 6.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 steals in his past four contests. He's a nice deep-league pickup and is even starting to gain traction in standard formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Dwight Powell fills it up across the board
    Dwight Powell scored six points with five rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in 25 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a little disappointing for the DFS owners, but owners in standard leagues will take this all day. Powell is going to see a significant bump in minutes and should be around 30 per night while the Mavs are shorthanded. He's a strong pickup in most leagues right now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Marcelo Huertas gets seven dimes, five steals
    Marcelo Huertas made his first NBA start vs. the Rockets on Wednesday, finishing a lopsided road loss with 10 points, seven assists, five steals, three rebounds and six turnovers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: The 33-year-old point guard earned the start with both D'Angelo Russell (knee) and Jose Calderon (hamstring) out of commission tonight. Russell is targeting a return next week, but if Huertas earns a few more starts he's worth a look as a DFS and streaming option. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Metta World Peace disappears into LAL bench
    Metta World Peace vanished into the Lakers' bench on Wednesday with two points in seven minutes.

    Advice: MWP was a fill-in starter vs. Utah on Monday but he's in the twilight of his career and has no fantasy appeal. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • Salah Mejri gets in foul trouble vs. Kings
    Salah Mejri played 11 minutes in a start for Andrew Bogut (knee) against the Kings on Wednesday, scoring two points with seven boards.

    Advice: Foul trouble kept his minutes down tonight, which isn't a surprise against DeMarcus Cousins. Mejri should be looking at more playing time in the next week, so he may have some short-term value in 16-team leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:22 pm
  • Larry Nance (knee) returns, plays 23 minutes
    Larry Nance (knee) came off the bench on Wednesday for two points, five boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 23 minutes vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Nance missed two games due to the ailment but it doesn't seem serious enough to linger, so owners should deploy him as usual. He'd be a must-own player if Julius Randle were to get hurt, and as things stand he's still a top-100 value with averages of 7.7 points (60.0 percent FGs, 75.0 percent FTs), 5.8 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.4 blocks and 0.6 turnovers. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • A.J. Hammons gets minutes
    A.J. Hammons played 11 minutes on Wednesday with five boards and two blocks.

    Advice: Coach Rick Carlisle said he'd look at Hammons, but it didn't happen until garbage time. You would have to be in a super deep league to take a look at the rookie. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:20 pm
  • Garrett Temple fills it up in garbage time
    Garrett Temple scored 17 points with three rebounds, three assists and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

    Advice: This was a garbage-time special with Temple scoring 11 points in the fourth. He has been in the rotation and he did play 14.8 minutes in the first half tonight, but his usage has been tiny all season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:09 pm
  • Ben McLemore gets 21 minutes
    Ben McLemore played 21 minutes in a start against the Mavs on Wednesday with nine points, one rebound and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: It wasn't the best game, but at least the Kings starters had success tonight after B-Mac was a DNP-CD in his previous three. Maybe McLemore can get another chance, especially with how coach Dave Joerger had his back in the offseason. He's only a pickup in very deep leagues for now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:06 pm
  • Arron Afflalo gets a DNP-CD
    Arron Afflalo moved to the bench and was a DNP-CD on Wednesday.

    Advice: OK then. Afflalo is only signed on a two-year deal, so the Kings may not view him as a piece going forward. He may get back in the rotation at some point, but his upside is very low. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Ben McLemore, Kosta Koufos will start vs. DAL
    Ben McLemore will start next to Darren Collison, Rudy Gay, Kosta Koufos and DeMarcus Cousins against the Mavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: McLemore was a DNP-CD in the last three games, so this is an interesting tweak for coach Dave Joerger. McLemore is nowhere near on the radar in most leagues, but maybe he can change that for deep leagues with a strong game tonight. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:33 pm
  • Arron Afflalo back to bench Wednesday
    Arron Afflalo will head back to the Kings bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ben McLemore will take his spot with the starters, and this demotion is nothing new for Afflalo. He has no fantasy appeal outside of very deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:33 pm
  • Salah Mejri will start against the Kings
    Salah Mejri will start against the Kings on Wednesday night.

    Advice: It'll be his third start of the season. Andrew Bogut (knee) is going to miss several games and at least 10 days, so Mejri is going to get some run. He played 29.5 minutes per game in his previous starts, so he may be on the radar as a short-term pickup in deeper leagues. Dwight Powell also benefits in a big way tonight. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:28 pm
  • MWP back to the bench
    Metta World Peace will move back to the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: He may not be in the rotation tonight after only getting 12 minutes in his start on Monday. World Peace has almost no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:00 pm
  • Huertas moving to the bench
    Marcelo Huertas will start against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He played a season-high 18 minutes off the bench on Monday night and could get over 20 tonight. Huertas has made just 29.2 percent from the field on the season, but his 2.7 dimes in 9.8 minutes per outing could be noteworthy. There's no need to add him almost anywhere and he remains a very risky DFS punt. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:58 pm
  • Brandon Jennings will start Wednesday vs. CLE
    Brandon Jennings will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cavs, with Derrick Rose (back) unavailable.

    Advice: Per-36 minutes this season, Jennings is averaging 11.6 points, 8.6 dimes, 4.4 boards, 1.7 steals and 1.7 triples per contest, so he's certainly on the radar as a potential DFS punt play or streamer option with a favorable matchup against the Cavs.Daily Slant: At or near minimum price across the DFS industry, Jennings is a viable punt play in any format. He should see upwards of 27-29 minutes with upside to clear 30+, and although he'll see more run with ball-dominant players Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis, Jennings' ceiling remains very high with big playing time. Punting the PG spots with a Jennings/Marcus Smart duo makes it easier to afford guys like Harden, Cousins and Durant. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:17 pm
  • Dwight Powell getting the big bump
    Dwight Powell is expected to see his playing time increase significantly with Andrew Bogut (knee) out of the lineup.

    Advice: "He's progressing game to game, no question about it," coach Rick Carlisle said. "He's gaining experience, recognition of situation, teammates being on the same wavelength with him. Many, many positives." Powell is coming off a big 15-point game on Monday in 32 minutes. He is worth a pickup for anyone needing a big man right now.Daily Slant: On a night when spending up for superstars is a must, Dwight Powell provides DFS owners with a low-cost, high-upside option in tournaments. Even with Bogut in the lineup for parts of the last two games, Powell has averaged 30 minutes over those contests and figures to approach that number again tonight with DeMarcus Cousins being featured on the Sacramento side. The Kings are 22nd in rebounding differential this year, so Powell definitely has double-double upside at near minimum price. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:37 pm
  • Could A.J. Hammons get minutes?
    Coach Rick Carlisle mentioned A.J. Hammons as a possible option to play on Wednesday.

    Advice: "It makes it much more difficult, but with [Dwight] Powell, [Salah] Mejri and Hammons, we’ll probably have to invent something else here, too, just to make sure we have enough manpower, especially tonight with [DeMarcus] Cousins," Carlisle said. Hammons hasn't played a single second in the first three quarters this season, so he's nowhere near being on the radar right now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:47 pm
  • Salah Mejri listed as probable starter
    Salah Mejri is listed as the probable starter for Wednesday against the Kings.

    Advice: This is the expected move with Andrew Bogut (knee) out and going against DeMarcus Cousins. Mejri has played 29.5 minutes per start, averaging 5.5 points, 11.0 boards, 1.0 blocks and 2.5 steals. While he does get a nice bump for fantasy purposes, Dwight Powell should also get a huge bump off the bench. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:41 pm
  • Larry Nance (knee) available to play vs. HOU
    Larry Nance (knee) will be available to play Wednesday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: He should resume his 20-minute reserve role, which will take away some minutes from Julius Randle. Nance has been a sneaky top-75 guy in 9-cat leagues this season with averages of 7.7 points, 5.8 boards, 1.2 steals and just 0.6 turnovers per game on 60.0 percent shooting from the field, so feel free to get him active. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:07 am
  • DeAndre Liggins will start Wednesday vs. NYK
    DeAndre Liggins will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Knicks with J.R. Smith (knee) unavailable.

    Advice: This will be just the second start of Liggins' career, and while he will see some increased opportunity with the first unit tonight, Smith's minutes will likely be divvied up between Liggins, Iman Shumpert and Jordan McRae with their being no clear winner here. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:38 am
  • Larry Nance (knee) questionable for Wednesday
    Larry Nance (knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game in Houston.

    Advice: Nance was a full participant during Tuesday's practice, and he was officially "available to play" on Monday, so he's probably much closer to probable for Wednesday's game. Owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but Nance's return to action will syphon away some minutes from Thomas Robinson and Julius Randle. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:48 pm
  • Larry Nance goes through light practice Tues
    Larry Nance (right knee contusion) was a full participant during Tuesday's light practice.

    Advice: Nance was available to play on Monday, but he didn't actually step foot on the court, although it sounds like there's a decent chance he gets back in the rotation for Wednesday's game in Houston. When Nance gets back, he'll take away some minutes from Julius Randle and Thomas Robinson could fall out of the rotation entirely. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:50 am
  • C's recall Demetrius Jackson from D-League
    The Celtics recalled Demetrius Jackson from the D-League on Tuesday.

    Advice: Jackson has appeared in just three games this season and played a total of 15 minutes. He should be left on waiver wires in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:44 am
  • Metta World Peace starts, plays 12 minutes
    Metta World Peace started at SG against the Jazz on Monday, but only played 12 minutes and scored four points with one assist and one rebound.

    Advice: He started with Jose Calderon (hamstring) out. MWP is basically just a placeholder in the first unit and he's not going to play more than a handful of minutes. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:20 pm
  • Dwight Powell scores 15 in 32 minutes
    Dwight Powell scored 15 points with seven rebounds in 32 minutes off the bench on Monday vs. Charlotte.

    Advice: Powell has a huge opportunity in front of him to produce, as Andrew Bogut hyperextended his right knee in the first quarter and wasn't able to return. With Dirk Nowitzki (Achilles) out indefinitely, that means Powell and Salah Mejri will have to hold down the fort if Bogut misses time. Powell added a block and shot 7-of-11 from the field and looks like the better pickup after Mejri logged just eight minutes. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:23 pm
  • Sam Dekker cools off on Monday
    Sam Dekker had five points, four rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer on 2-of-5 shooting in just 18 minuets on Monday.

    Advice: Dekker was rolling, scoring a career-high 17 on Friday and hitting double figures in three straight games coming into this one. He looked much more like Sam Dekker tonight, and if you picked him up recently, it's not a bad idea to peruse the waiver wire tonight and see if there's a more consistent option out there. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:00 pm
  • Metta World Peace will start for the Lakers
    Metta World Peace will start in the backcourt alongside Brandon Ingram on Monday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Jose Calderon (hamstring) is out 2-4 weeks, while D'Angelo Russell (knee) will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. MWP is basically in the starting five in order to keep Jordan Clarkson and Lou Williams with the second unit. Brandon Ingram will draw the start at point guard. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:29 pm
  • Larry Nance is available, but may not play
    Larry Nance (right knee contusion) is available on Monday vs. the Jazz, but he may not play.

    Advice: Coach Luke Walton said Nance is "ready to go if we need him," but Walton would prefer if the forward got some extra rest. In case it needs to be said, Nance doesn't belong in fantasy lineups Monday. Thomas Robinson will likely remain in the rotation Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:52 pm
  • Brandon Jennings scores 19 points Sunday
    Brandon Jennings came off the bench on Sunday with 19 points on 5-of-7 FGs and 7-of-7 FTs, adding three assists, one rebound and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Jennings' contributions were crucial for New York tonight, but they're not enough to alter his outlook in most fantasy leagues. He made two triples against a Kings team that gives up the third-most per game (10.4), he hasn't scored double-digit points in consecutive games since Nov. 1-2, and he's committed four turnovers in three straight games. Leave him on the wire in most 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:28 pm
  • Larry Nance (knee) questionable for Monday
    Larry Nance (right knee contusion) is questionable to play Monday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Nance missed Saturday's showdown in Memphis, which resulted in Julius Randle, Luol Deng and Brandon Ingram logging heavy minutes, and it'll be more of the same if Nance can't give it a go Monday night. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:43 am
  • Dwight Powell scores career-high 17 in win
    Dwight Powell hit 7-of-11 shots off the bench and finished Saturday's surprising win over the Bulls with a career-high 17 points, eight rebounds and one assist.

    Advice: With Dirk Nowitzki's season potentially hanging in the balance, Powell is someone to keep an eye on. Yes, Nowitzki says he'll be fine, but continues to remain out indefinitely. Powell is averaging 9.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.6 blocks over his last five games, so he's far from a must-own player. But he's also averaging 21 minutes over that stretch and played 28 of them tonight. Put him on your radar. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:20 pm
  • Marcelo Huertas gets in the rotation
    Marcelo Huertas played 14 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday with two points, two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two turnovers.

    Advice: Well, the Lakers are running out of point guards. D'Angelo Russell (knee) is still out and Jose Calderon (hamstring) went down tonight. Considering Calderon's injury history, he's likely out for several games. Huertas would be a candidate to start and could see minutes in the low 20s until Russell comes back. He's only worth a look in deep leagues for now. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:59 pm
  • Larry Nance will not play on Saturday night
    Larry Nance (right knee contusion) will not play against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Advice: The Lakers will be short in the forward department, so there may be a few extra minutes going to Thomas Robinson and Luol Deng. They could also get away with some smaller lineups against the thin Grizzlies squad. Nance is only day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:42 pm
  • Inspectah Dek: Sam Dekker scores 17 points
    Sam Dekker scored a career-high 17 points against the Nuggets on Friday, adding four rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

    Advice: It was a fantastic game for Dekker, who was already playing the best ball of his career coming into this game. He played clutch minutes against the Warriors on Thursday and is fitting right in for coach Mike D'Antoni with minutes at both forward spots. With Trevor Ariza (back) going down tonight, Dekker is a speculative add in competitive leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:27 pm
  • Brandon Jennings only gets 19 minutes
    Brandon Jennings scored two points with three rebounds, eight assists and four turnovers in 19 minutes against the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: Derrick Rose and Justin Holiday were both in a good groove, so the minutes were not there for Jennings tonight like they were on Wednesday. Obviously Rose isn't going to be on his game every night, so Jennings will see better days. Still, he's more of a desperate asset for a PG-needy owner in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:56 pm
  • Larry Nance has a right knee contusion
    Larry Nance has been diagnosed with a right knee contusion and is questionable for Saturday's game vs. Memphis.

    Advice: He bumped knees on Friday vs. Toronto and will likely be re-evaluated on Saturday morning. Nance finished with six points and six rebounds in 23 minutes. If he sits out, Julius Randle will have a heavy workload and Thomas Robinson should be in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:26 pm
  • Sam Dekker gets 26 minutes vs. Warriors
    Sam Dekker played 26 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with 11 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He played a team-high 11.9 minutes in the fourth quarter and saw 4.8 minutes in the two overtime frames, so clearly coach Mike D'Antoni trusts Dekker with important minutes. Dekker is coming off a 27-minute game against the Jazz, but some of that is due to garbage time. That said, he does appear to be a guy who could be close to 20 minutes per night. With how many treys the Rockets take and the tempo leading to some steals, Dekker is on the radar in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:40 pm
  • Dwight Powell scores six with eight boards
    Dwight Powell scored six points with eight rebounds, one block and one steal in 24 minutes against the Hornets on Thursday.

    Advice: Thank goodness he looks to be out of his slump. In his last five games, Powell has made 57.7 percent from the field with averages of 7.6 points, 4.0 boards, 1.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.6 blocks. He's likely going to remain in his role as the backup big man with around 20 minutes regardless of who is out on a given night -- he did get four minutes at power forward tonight. He's only an option in deep leagues right now, but his playing time may increase later in the year. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:50 pm
  • Salah Mejri gets 27 minutes in start
    Salah Mejri played 27 minutes against the Hornets on Thursday with three points, 11 rebounds, one steal and one block.

    Advice: Andrew Bogut (rest) did not play while Dirk Nowitzki (Achilles) is still out, so there were heavy center minutes up for grabs. The Mavs were being careful with Mejri earlier in the season due to some injuries, but they may play him more on the nights Bogut sits. Mejri is barely in the rotation when Bogut is active, so he's only a plug-and-plug or DFS punt. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:43 pm
  • Salah Mejri, Dorian Finney-Smith starting
    Salah Mejri will get the start on Thursday.

    Advice: Andrew Bogut is getting the night off tonight, so Mejri should find himself getting minutes in the low 20s. Dwight Powell should also get some minutes in the second unit and could be a better option. Powell has really struggled lately, though. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:53 pm
  • Alex Len has another multi-block game
    Alex Len had another single-digit scoring game on Wednesday with six points on 3-of-4 shooting, nine rebounds, two blocks, one steal and two turnovers in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Tyson Chandler's return to the starting lineup has done Len no favors, but it's not all bad news. Len has seven straight games with at least two blocks, the longest streak by a Suns player since Jermaine O'Neal in 2012, and he's averaging 9.9 rebounds during that stretch. He's worth holding onto in most formats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:54 pm
  • Brandon Jennings scores 12 points
    Brandon Jennings played 34 minutes against the Wolves on Wednesday with 12 points, two rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He played the entire fourth quarter while Derrick Rose played just 3.1 minutes in that frame. Jennings has seen his minutes fluctuate and only played 13 minutes on Monday. Although, Jennings could be looking at a bump in playing time if Courtney Lee (ankle) needs to miss time. He's more of a 14-team guy due to his shooting woes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:54 pm
  • Larry Nance posts double-double in 26 minutes
    Larry Nance was productive in 26 minutes vs. Chicago on Wednesday with 12 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and one assist.

    Advice: Nance made 5-of-8 shots with just one turnover and he's a sneaky late-round value despite playing just 21.8 minutes per game. The presence of Julius Randle continues to cap his ceiling, and he's not a great option in points leagues, but roto owners should give him a look for high-efficiency offense, low turnovers, and a handful of boards and defensive stats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:54 pm
  • Arron Afflalo still struggling for Kings
    Arron Afflalo started on Monday and hit just 1-of-6 shots for three points, one rebound and one assist.

    Advice: He has scored eight or fewer points in six of his last seven games and simply isn't getting it done. The Kings would likely have a few more wins if they could find a reliable shooting guard, but that's been an issue for them ever since Ben McLemore arrived on the scene. McLemore didn't even play tonight, while Omri Casspi, Garrett Temple and Matt Barnes were also highly ineffective. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:28 pm
  • Arron Afflalo and Kosta Koufos starting again
    Arron Afflalo and Kosta Koufos will start again on Monday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: Coach Dave Joerger may shuffle his lineups quite often, but the only three players that should always be penciled into the first unit are Darren Collison, Rudy Gay and DeMarcus Cousins. Afflalo and Koufos are deep-league fantasy assets at best. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:06 pm
  • Earl Watson praises Alex Len
    Suns coach Earl Watson praised Alex Len for his rim protection.

    Advice: "His timing is getting better," Watson said. "You get timing through experience. Practice can’t create that environment. You have to get in-game minutes." Len is averaging 9.6 points, 10.0 rebounds and 2.6 blocks over his last five games, and it sounds like Watson wants to keep feeding him minutes even with Tyson Chandler back in the mix. He will be a little inconsistent, but could have a strong finish to the season once the Suns focus on player development. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:21 am
  • Arron Afflalo doesn't care about starting
    Arron Afflalo said it doesn't matter to him if he starts or comes off the bench.

    Advice: "You can’t fault a coach for trying to win and trying to find guys that work together," Afflalo said. "But for me personally, I take pride in being a versatile basketball player, so sometimes coaches can see the benefit of me coming off the bench, and sometimes I’m a necessary stability piece in the starting lineup. It just depends." His role is going to fluctuate from game to game, and his season averages of 8.9 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.7 treys aren't helping fantasy owners. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:13 am
  • Larry Nance (thumb) gets 12 & 10 vs. Hawks
    Larry Nance (sprained right thumb) came off the bench on Sunday for a season-high 10 rebounds with 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting and three assists in 32 minutes.

    Advice: The thumb injury didn't inhibit Nance tonight and he crashed the glass with his usual gusto, getting four of his boards on the offensive end. He's a solid streaming option while Julius Randle is out, and he could hold value even after Randle returns. Nance isn't a great points-league option but his efficiency has secured top-100 value through L.A.'s first 17 games. Rotoworld.com Nov 27, 9:50 pm
