  • Taurean Prince starting again on Tuesday
    Taurean Prince will draw another start on Tuesday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Thabo Sefolosha (groin), Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) are all out, and Bazemore is the only player expected back on Wednesday. That means Prince is looking at a significant workload tonight and could have some nice short-term value this whole week. In his previous start, Prince went off for 17 points, six boards, one assist, three steals, one block and two triples in 38 minutes. Rotoworld.com 24 minutes ago
  • Tiago Splitter (calf) available to play Tues
    Tiago Splitter (calf) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Splitter hasn't taken the court since January of 2016, so if he is able to get out there tonight, it will likely be in an extremely limited capacity. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:18 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will play Tuesday
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will play Tuesday night vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Kilpatrick had missed seven straight games. Coach Kenny Atkinson said that Kilpatrick will get some minutes "here and there," so we can expect him to see limited playing time on Tuesday. Kilpatrick will eat into the minutes of K.J. McDaniels and Randy Foye. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:56 pm
  • Khris Middleton (illness) will play Tuesday
    Coach Jason Kidd said that Khris Middleton (stomach virus) will play Tuesday vs. Charlotte.

    Advice: Middleton missed shootaround this morning, but fortunately is feeling better. Fantasy owners can breathe a sign of relief and feel comfortable inserting him into their starting lineup. Middleton is averaging 16.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 treys over the Bucks last 15 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:41 pm
  • Al Jefferson will miss at least 2 weeks
    Al Jefferson (sprained left ankle) will miss at least the next 2 weeks of action for Indiana.

    Advice: If Jefferson is able to meet the 2-week timetable, there's a chance he could get back to the court for Indiana's final regular season game, but there are no guarantees that will happen. Jefferson was only averaging 11 minutes a game through the month of March, so his absence won't have any real impact in fantasy hoops. Kevin Seraphin and Rakeem Christmas may play more, but that doesn't mean much. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:06 pm
  • Barbosa (hamstring) questionable Tuesday
    Leandro Barbosa (hamstring) is questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: The hamstring issue forced Barbosa to the sidelines on Sunday, which resulted in Tyler Ulis logging heavy minutes. If he's out again tonight, it'll be more of the same. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:00 pm
  • Felicio (back) does not practice on Tuesday
    Coach Fred Hoiberg said that Cristiano Felicio (bruised tailbone) was unable to practice on Tuesday due to soreness.

    Advice: Felicio has missed three straight games. However, the Bulls don't play again until Thursday, so he has two full days to rest. If Felicio is unable to play on Thursday, Joffrey Lauvergne will continue to serve as Robin Lopez's backup. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:58 am
  • Jonas Jerebko (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Jonas Jerebko was unable to finish practice on Tuesday due to a sore knee.

    Advice: At this point, we have to consider Jerebko questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks. The fantasy impact is minimal, as he is averaging just 11.1 minutes per game over his last four appearances. Kelly Olynyk and Tyler Zeller may see a few extra minutes if Jerebko does not play on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:50 am
  • Khris Middleton (ill) questionable Tuesday
    Khris Middleton (stomach virus) missed shootaround this morning and is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: The flu bug has claimed many a victim this season. Here's hoping that Middleton is not added to the list of players that have been forced to miss a game. If Middleton is unable to suit up, Mirza Teletovic would likely see the biggest bump in playing time. Tony Snell and Jason Terry may log a few extra minutes as well. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:05 am
  • Splitter may make season debut on Tuesday
    Tiago Splitter (calf) went through shootaround this morning and may make his 2016-17 season debut on Tuesday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Splitter, who has not appeared in an NBA game since January of 2016, has slowly inched his way closer to a return to the court. Splitter has very limited fantasy value, as he'd only see sparse minutes off the bench behind Richaun Holmes and Shawn Long. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:11 am
  • Andre Iguodala finishing the season strongly
    Andre Iguodala has stepped up since Kevin Durant (knee) went down and has played his best basketball of the season this month.

    Advice: The 33-year old Iguodala credits yoga, cryotherapy and salt floating with keeping him fresh this late in the season. "He’s been fantastic," coach Steve Kerr said. "He looks incredibly athletic, bouncy and fresh." Over his last nine games, Iggy is averaging 12.4 points (on 63.1 percent shooting), 3.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals. The only real concern going forward is Kerr intermittently resting him. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:55 am
  • Kent Bazemore (knee) 'trending upward'
    Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play Tuesday but is planning to return for Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Tuesday's game vs. Phoenix will be the fifth straight contest Bazemore has missed after injuring his knee during the Hawks loss to the Blazers on March 18. Bazemore said the rehab has been successful and he is "starting to feel good" and can now do "just about everything." The red-hot Tim Hardaway Jr. will draw another start and play heavy minutes on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:36 am
  • Danny Green returned to action on Monday March 27. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:46 am
  • Georgios Papagiannis does not play
    Georgios Papagiannis was listed as a DNP-CD in Monday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Papagiannis was pretty hot coming into the game, but head coach Dave Joerger mostly relied upon his veterans in this matchup against the team which unceremoniously dumped him last May after three seasons. The rookie had been playing very well lately, especially with Kosta Koufos resting in two of the past three games. Don't give up on Papagiannis if you recently added him, as Koufos will likely see more rest in the final days of the season with the rookie seeing plenty of run. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:52 pm
  • Garrett Temple doesn't do much with time
    Garrett Temple played 34 minutes in Monday's 91-90 win against the Grizzlies, but he finished with just six points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a blocked shot.

    Advice: Temple was leaned upon heavily for his veteran presence in a game head coach Dave Joerger wanted badly against his former team, but Temple misfired on eight of his 10 field goal attempts. When Arron Afflalo (personal) or Tyreke Evans (rest) return it will mean a lesser role - and fantasy appeal - for Temple. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Joe Ingles scores 19 points, hits five treys
    Joe Ingles started in place of Gordon Hayward (quad) in Monday's 108-100 win over the Pelicans and scored 19 points in 35 minutes.

    Advice: The Jazz were running a lot of offense through him down the stretch and he delivered, scoring 10 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter -- he even hit a step-back jumper over Anthony Davis in the final two minutes. He finished 7-of-13 from the field and hit all five of his 3-pointers, adding four rebounds, four assists and one steal. He won't be this good, but give him a look if we learn that Hayward will miss more time. Ingles averaged 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.0 triples in 20 previous starts this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard posts 25-6-6 in rout of Cavs
    Kawhi Leonard finished with 25 points, six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a blocked shot in 30 minutes on Monday against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: About the only thing fantasy owners can complain about is the fact Leonard missed all seven of his 3-pointer attempts. He could have blown through the lane for an easy deuce most of the evening, but elected to go outside rather frequently. He still was 11-of-21 overall from the floor, so fantasy owners cannot complain too loudly. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Danny Green records four blocked shots
    Danny Green misfired on six of his seven field goal attempts in Monday's win against the Cavaliers, but he ended up with four blocked shots and two steals.

    Advice: Two of Green's swats came at the expense of none other than LeBron James, as that is the kind of night it was for the Cavaliers. Green at least dropped one in the bucket from behind the arc, his specialty, although he has struggled from the perimeter in March. Green has made just five of his past 23 triple attempts over the past seven games, so he isn't really helping any fantasy owners at the moment. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Garrett Temple starting Monday vs. Memphis
    Garrett Temple is in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Temple should do some heavy lifting with Arron Afflalo (personal) and Tyreke Evans (rest) in street clothes. While his role might be fairly significant for this game, he isn't someone to rely upon down the stretch. The Kings are likely to lean heavily upon their youth to get a jump on the 2017-18 season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:35 pm
  • Joe Ingles starting for Gordon Hayward (quad)
    Joe Ingles will start in place of Gordon Hayward (quad) on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: The Jazz will start George Hill, Rodney Hood, Ingles, Boris Diaw and Rudy Gobert. Ingles is worth a look if you need some stream some assists, steals and triples, as he's averaging 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.0 triples in 20 starts this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:00 pm
  • Danny Green (rest) will play Monday vs. CLE
    Danny Green (rest) will return to the court for Monday's matchup with the Cavs.

    Advice: Green sat out Saturday's game as a precaution, but he'll get back out there tonight, which will likely shift Jonathon Simmons back to the second unit. Gregg Popovich confirmed that he won't be resting any of his main guys for Monday's game, so if you own LaMarcus Aldridge, Kawhi Leonard or Pau Gasol, feel free to get those guys active. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:24 pm
  • Al Jefferson (ankle) ruled out for Tuesday
    Al Jefferson (left ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's matchup with Minnesota.

    Advice: Nate McMillan said that at the very least he's expecting Jefferson to spend a couple days on the sidelines, and considering Jefferson was recently spotted on crutches and in a walking boot, we'd considered him doubtful for Wednesday's game in Memphis as well. Lavoy Allen and Kevin Seraphin will likely pick up most of Jefferson's minutes, but that really doesn't mean much at all in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:31 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) probable Tuesday
    Sean Kilpatrick (strained left hamstring) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's matchup with the 76ers.

    Advice: Kilpatrick has spent the past seven games on the sidelines with the hamstring issue, but it sounds like he'll be back in action on Tuesday night. With Kilpatrick expected to be active, there won't be quite as many minutes available for guys like Randy Foye, Archie Goodwin and K.J. McDaniels. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:58 pm
  • Tiago Splitter recalled from the D-League
    Tiago Splitter has been recalled from the D-League.

    Advice: Splitter may be able to earn limited minutes off the 76ers bench at some point, but it's highly unlikely that he'll get enough minutes to matter in any league this season. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:25 am
  • Taurean Prince expected to start again Tues
    Mike Budenholzer said that Taurean Prince will more than likely earn another start on Tuesday vs. Phoenix.

    Advice: Thabo Sefolosha (groin), Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) will all be on the sidelines for Tuesday's game, so it would be surprising if Prince weren't in the starting lineup. In his first career start on Sunday, Prince popped off for 17 points, six boards, one assist, three steals, one block and two triples in 38 minutes, so he'll be someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or DFS punt play on Tuesday night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:22 am
  • Kent Bazemore (knee) targeting Wednesday?
    Kent Bazemore (knee) could return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: This means he will miss at least one more game vs. the Suns on Tuesday. Thabo Sefolosha (groin) is also out on Tuesday, meaning Taurean Prince will be a solid streaming option vs. the Suns -- Prince scored a career-high 17 points in his first NBA start against the Nets on Sunday with six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to be a must-start player until further notice. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:49 am
  • Al Jefferson (ankle) out at least a few days
    Al Jefferson (ankle) is expected to miss at least a few days according to coach Nate McMillan.

    Advice: This means it's safe to rule him out for Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves. X-rays came back negative after he sprained his left ankle on Sunday, but Big Al woke up on Monday morning with a lot of swelling. He's also still on crutches and in a walking boot. In his absence, Lavoy Allen, Kevin Seraphin and Rakeem Christmas are all candidates for more minutes, but there are no fantasy pickups here. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:44 am
  • Andre Iguodala posts all-around gem vs. MEM
    Andre Iguodala had a hyper-efficient game on Sunday, making 7-of-8 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with two 3-pointers for 20 points, while adding seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and zero turnovers.

    Advice: Iguodala logged 32 minutes tonight and he's been critical to the Warriors' success since Kevin Durant went down. For what it's worth, Steve Kerr didn't explicitly rule out resting Iguodala over the next week, which includes a back-to-back set vs. the Spurs and Rockets. He has been awesome lately, and owners should simply monitor his status prior to each of Golden State's games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:00 pm
  • X-rays negative for Al Jefferson (left ankle)
    X-rays were negative on Al Jefferson's sprained left ankle, and he was in good spirits after Sunday's game.

    Advice: "Everything seemed normal so it's just an ankle sprain," Jefferson said. He was in a great deal of pain after the injury and left the court in a wheelchair, however, and the veteran center could easily miss extended time here. If he does get some DNPs, that would open up a few extra minutes for Lavoy Allen, Kevin Seraphin and Rakeem Christmas. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:23 pm
  • Al Jefferson (ankle) won't return Sunday
    Al Jefferson won't return after spraining his left ankle during Sunday's game vs. the 76ers, finishing with 14 points and seven rebounds in 11 minutes.

    Advice: X-rays were negative but Jefferson appeared to be in considerable pain, as he was screaming in agony after the injury. The team brought out a wheelchair to take him back to the locker room. It's uncertain how much time he'll need before he returns, but his absence could be a big blow to the depth of the Pacers down the stretch. Rakeem Christmas and Kevin Seraphin figure to pick up the scraps if Jefferson is forced to the shelf. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 5:01 pm
  • Khris Middleton gets 14 points on 17 shots
    Khris Middleton needed 17 shots to score 14 points on Sunday, connecting on six attempts while adding six rebounds, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers without a turnover in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Middleton had an atrocious night vs. Atlanta on Friday, going 1-of-13 from the field with three turnovers, and he's going through a prolonged slump at a brutal time for fantasy owners. He's too good to struggle much longer, though, and should benefit from a cupcake matchup with the Kings' defense on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:19 pm
  • Taurean Prince scores 17 points in start
    Taurean Prince matched a career-high 17 points in his first NBA start against the Nets on Sunday, adding six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: Not a bad start and obviously not having Paul Millsap, Kent Bazemore and Thabo Sefolosha helped him get some added run. Plus, it helps to go against the Nets with those extra minutes. Prince still has a lot of work to do as a scorer and he really struggles around the rim, but the opportunity is there for him right now and he's been adept at adding defensive stats. With Millsap and Bazemore in doubt this week, Prince is worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:52 pm
  • Danny Green expected to return Monday vs. CLE
    Danny Green is expected to return on Monday after sitting out Saturday's game as a precaution.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like the Spurs will rest any of their veterans for Monday's game vs. the Cavaliers, so owners can tentatively deploy them as usual. Dejounte Murray (groin) is the only player currently ruled out. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:55 pm
  • Leandro Barbosa (hamstring) out Sunday
    Leandro Barbosa (hamstring) will not play on Sunday vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: He has a "left hamstring issue" and will join Ronnie Price (leg), Eric Bledsoe (rest) and Brandon Knight (rest), Tyson Chandler (rest) on the shelf. Expect heavy workloads for Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:51 am
  • Taurean Prince will start on Sunday vs. BKN
    Taurean Prince will start on Sunday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: This will be the rookie's first career NBA start. With Paul Millsap (knee), Kent Bazemore (knee) and Thabo Sefolosha (groin) all out, Prince does have some streaming appeal with per-36 minute averages of 11.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.2 triples. He's looking at a heavy workload this afternoon and does offer plenty of upside in the money categories. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:10 am
  • Kawhi Leonard scores 29 points vs. Knicks
    Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points during a 106-98 win over the Knicks on Saturday, adding five rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: The minutes continue to be there and it looks like for the second year in a row, Kawhi will play more minutes per game after the break than he did before it. Leonard also hinted that he won't be seeing a decrease in minutes based on the tough upcoming schedule. "It's going to get us mentally prepared," Leonard said. This tough stretch starts against the Cavs on Monday as the Spurs start a four-game week. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:56 pm
  • Joe Ingles hurts right elbow
    Joe Ingles (right elbow) scored one point with three rebounds, five assists and one steal in 27 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He looked to suffer a non-contact injury to his non-shooting elbow and left the game after the injury. Ingles didn't get treatment or medical attention after he checked out, and he did return shortly afterwards. For now, Ingles sounds like he's going to be OK. If Gordon Hayward (knee) does need to miss time, Ingles would be asked to step up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:04 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) out again Sunday
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play against the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: This hamstring strain will cost him at least two weeks and the Nets haven't indicated much on his progress. Kilpatrick did have an interesting tweet about his time on the sidelines today. "Our road trips be memorable," Kilpatrick tweeted. "Learning, getting better, and analyzing the game of basketball." It sounds like he'll be studying a little while longer. K.J. McDaniels has seen some minutes while Randy Foye has slightly benefited. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:22 pm
  • Kent Bazemore out again for Sunday
    Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play against the Nets on Sunday.

    Advice: He was expected to miss 7-10 days, so he was not expected to play since that prognosis back on Mar. 19. With Bazemore out at least one more, Tim Hardaway Jr. should see all the run he can handle while Thabo Sefolosha, Mike Dunleavy and Taurean Prince pick up the scraps on the wing. Bazemore should be dropped in most leagues. Prince has the most value of that bunch and gets a great matchup on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:06 pm
  • Danny Green (rest) will not play vs. Knicks
    Danny Green (rest) will not play against the Knicks on Saturday.

    Advice: It'll be his first game off since November and it comes on a non-back-to-back set. Green has played 28.5 minutes per game in March, which is by far the most he's played in a full month this season. With Green out tonight, Jonathon Simmons figures to get some extra run and could get some added value in garbage time tonight. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:44 am
  • Cris Felicio out again for Sunday
    Cristiano Felicio (tailbone) will not play on Sunday against the Bucks.

    Advice: The Bulls may have missed Felicio on Friday after they gave up 70 points in the paint to the 76ers. With Felicio out, it'll be Joffrey Lauvergne backing up Robin Lopez, who was terrible on Friday with just one point. Felicio may have value in deep leagues upon his return. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:33 am
  • Andre Iguodala scores nine points
    Andre Iguodala scored nine points with one rebound, three assists and no turnovers in 27 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

    Advice: He did go to the locker room in the last few minutes, but the game was over. Iguodala did not give much indication he was going to miss time, so he should be fine for Sunday. Although, the Warriors will likely rest him again at some point. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:10 am
  • Papagiannis gets career-high 27 minutes
    Georgios Papagiannis played a career-high 27 minutes against the Warriors on Friday, scoring seven points with four rebounds, one assist and one block.

    Advice: With Kosta Koufos having another bad game, it probably won't be long until Papagiannis is starting. He's been a great offensive rebounder lately and does have a 19.2 usage rate since he's been freed in his last four. Papagiannis isn't going to be consistent, but he could be a double-double guy with a block going forward. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:04 am
  • Middleton shoots 1-of-13, Bucks win anyways
    Khris Middleton shot 1-of-13 from the field and only scored six points, but the Bucks won their third straight game in a 100-97 win over the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: With the win, the Bucks are now tied with the Hawks for the No. 5 seed in the East. Middleton played 32 minutes and added three rebounds, three assists, three steals and three turnovers, but this will likely be an outlier in what has been an incredible month -- he was averaging 18.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.9 triples in his previous 13 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:43 pm
  • Andre Iguodala not on the injury report
    Andre Iguodala (hip) is not on the injury report for Friday against the Kings.

    Advice: After missing the last game on Tuesday, Iguodala could be back for this home game. The Warriors are not on a back-to-bac set, but they really won't need Iggy as 18-point favorites tonight. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:47 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) ruled out Friday
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: This will be the sixth consecutive game Kilpatrick has missed. He should be left on waivers in all leagues. K.J. McDaniels has been the biggest beneficiary of late. McDaniels has played over 20 minutes in each of Brooklyn's last two games and posted season-highs in both points (16) and rebounds (8) Thursday night in a blowout victory over the Suns. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:58 am
  • Cristiano Felicio (back) will not play Friday
    Cristiano Felicio (bruised tailbone) will not play Friday vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: This will be the second straight game Felicio has missed after landing awkwardly on his back in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors. Fortunately for the Bulls, Robin Lopez returns from suspension on Friday. RoLo will be backed up by Joffrey Lauvergne. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:07 am
  • Danny Green vanishes in 22 minutes Thursday
    Danny Green disappeared vs. Memphis on Thursday with four points, two assists, one turnover and no other stats to his credit in 22 minutes.

    Advice: We're more than 85 percent through with the regular season, so anyone owning Green should be inured to occasional duds. He's not worth owning in most points leagues, but continues to eke out value in most roto formats. Owners should at least be spared DNP-CDs given his modest playing time and the Spurs' continued pursuit of the No. 1 seed. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:47 pm
  • Garrett Temple comes off the bench
    Garrett Temple scored 12 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's tough to count on any Kings vet right now with how the front office finally is getting to play the youth. Temple can remain on the wire in just about all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:03 pm
  • Papa G blocks a couple shots
    Georgios Papagiannis made 2-of-9 from the field for four points with seven rebounds and two blocks in 23 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: With Kosta Koufos getting the night off, the Kings gave their rookie plenty of run during this game. Papagiannis still isn't very effective on the offensive end, but he is improving and does have some upside for blocks and boards. He's worth a look in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:57 pm
  • Taurean Prince chips in across the board Wed
    Taurean Prince played 28 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, finishing a road loss with seven points on 3-of-8 shooting, four rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: The rookie has entrenched himself in coach Mike Budenholzer's rotation, and his role has increased with Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) both out of commission. His ability to chip in threes, steals and blocks is crucial to his fantasy value, and he's worth holding in most roto leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:33 pm
  • Garrett Temple to bench on Wednesday
    Garrett Temple will come off the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: Arron Afflalo is getting the start tonight, and this effectively erases Temple's faint fantasy appeal. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:31 pm
  • Cris Felicio ruled out; Lauvergne starting
    Cristiano Felicio (back) will not play against the Pistons on Wednesday and Joffrey Lauvergne will get the start.

    Advice: The Bulls are running out of centers for today with Robin Lopez also suspended. Felicio would've been in a great spot, but now the Bulls will likely mix in some Bobby Portis at the five. That should also open up some minutes for Nikola Mirotic. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:25 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick out again for Thursday
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play against the Suns on Thursday.

    Advice: This will be his fifth game out of the lineup. The Nets have taken a look at K.J. McDaniels lately, giving him 21 minutes on Tuesday with 11 points. Archie Goodwin has also got some run, but these two are tough to own in most leagues. Caris LeVert should also benefit. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:00 pm
  • Khris Middleton helps Bucks beat Blazers
    Khris Middleton racked up 26 points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals, a block and three 3-pointers on 11-of-22 shooting in 33 minutes of Tuesday's big 93-90 win over the Blazers.

    Advice: Wow. He was worth the wait if you stashed him long before he came back and there was some risk involved, as no one was really sure how he'd look or fit in with the new-look Bucks. He's been fantastic, averaging 18.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting over his last five games. With the Bucks fighting for their playoff life and seeding, Middleton should continue to roll the rest of the way. He's also played in all 12 of the Bucks' March games, scoring in double figures in all of them. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:15 pm
  • Leandro Barbosa plays 18 minutes in loss
    Leandro Barbosa played through an illness on Tuesday and hit 4-of-7 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points and an assist in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He missed Sunday's game with the illness and while he played fairly well tonight, he only gets around 15-18 minutes a night, which aren't enough to make him fantasy-worthy. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:09 pm
  • Cristiano Felicio suffers hard fall in loss
    Cristiano Felicio took a hard fall in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors and never returned to the game.

    Advice: Felicio landed hard on his back and hobbled to the locker room, but he joined his teammates on the bench shortly after. It looked like he was available to return, but we'll put him on the injury report to be safe. With Robin Lopez likely looking at a suspension, Felicio could be a low-end source of rebounds if he's able to give it a go on Wednesday vs. the Pistons. He finished with five points, two rebounds and one steal in 16 minutes. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:56 pm
  • Barbosa (illness) likely to play Tuesday
    Coach Earl Watson said Leandro Barbosa (illness) is likely to play Tuesday vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Barbosa was upgraded to probable earlier in the day, so it certainly appears he is on track to return after missing the Suns previous two contests. Devin Booker (right ankle) is also expected to play, so Barbosa will likely log his usual 12-15 minutes. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:14 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (hip) ruled out Tuesday
    Andre Iguodala (left hip strain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Mavs.

    Advice: This is the first we've heard of a hip injury for Iggy. We should get an update on its severity soon. Iguodala has missed a few games to rest this season but has been remarkably healthy all year long. With Kevin Durant (knee) already sidelined, this leaves the Warriors a bit thin at small forward. Patrick McCaw and Matt Barnes will both see an uptick in minutes, but it would be difficult to place too much trust in either player. Daily Slant: With Durant and Iguodala off the floor this season, Klay Thompson leads the Warriors in usage at 32.2%, and produces at a 1.17 FPPM clip compared to a 1.11 FPPM mark for back-court mate Stephen Curry. Ian Clark carries a considerably higher usage rate (25.6%) than either Matt Barnes (17.0%) or Patrick McCaw (15.2%) in that split, but targeting any of those three players is best left for GPP play.

  • Leandro Barbosa (illness) probable Tuesday
    Leandro Barbosa (illness) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: The Suns are badly in need of healthy backcourt bodies and it appears they will get both Barbosa and Devin Booker (ankle) back on Tuesday night. Derrick Jones, Jared Dudley and Jarell Eddie will see their minutes reduced with Barbosa and Booker back in the mix. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:44 am
  • Sixers assign Tiago Splitter to D-League
    The Sixers have assigned Tiago Splitter to their D-League affiliate.

    Advice: Philly has talked about getting a look at Splitter in practices and possibly in the D-League. However, Splitter has not appeared in an NBA game since January of 2016, so he obviously holds limited fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:54 am
  • Barbosa (ill) participates in walk-through
    Leandro Barbosa (illness) participated in the Suns' walk-through on Tuesday morning.

    Advice: Barbosa has missed each of Pheonix's last two games. As of yesterday, he was listed as questionable in the game notes and we don't know if his odds of playing have increased. Devin Booker (ankle) is now probable, so the Suns will likely have at least one healthy shooting guard active on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:37 am
  • Al Jefferson busy in small window
    Al Jefferson jacked up nine shots in just 11 minutes off the bench Monday against the Jazz, hitting five field goals to end up with 10 points.

    Advice: Jefferson certainly made the most of his small amount of playing time, and for that his remaining fantasy owners in deeper leagues thank him. Perhaps this decent showing will get him more intertwined in the team's rotation, as he has been limited to fighting for scraps lately behind the likes of Rakeem Christmas and Kevin Seraphin. It was Seraphin who didn't leave the bench in this one because Jefferson was so hot. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:36 pm
  • Joe Ingles adjusts to bench role again
    Joe Ingles came off the bench in Monday's game at Indiana, scoring four points with seven rebounds and five assists over 27 minutes.

    Advice: Ingles wasn't terribly active on the offensive end, but he was busy on the glass and he even recorded a blocked shot. He still logged starter-type minutes as the first option off the bench, although that was partly due to Rodney Hood being in foul trouble. Ingles remains a decent play in deeper fantasy formats even in a reserve role, although obviously his appeal is much higher when Hood is on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:12 pm
  • Taurean Prince scores 11 points
    Taurean Prince scored 11 points with four rebounds, one assist and one triple vs. the Hornets on Monday.

    Advice: Kent Bazemore (knee) is going to miss at least another week and Paul Millsap has been ruled out for at least one more game, so Prince may continue to be a workhorse. He didn't shoot the ball well tonight (4-of-13 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs), but he logged 30 minutes and was the first player off the bench. He averaged 11.5 points, 4.0 boards, 1.3 dimes, 0.8 steals, 2.3 blocks and 1.5 treys in his previous four games, so there's some upside here and he's someone to consider streaming with three more games on the schedule this week. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:29 pm
  • Joe Ingles returns to the bench
    Joe Ingles will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Rodney Hood (knee) is returning to action, but Derrick Favors (knee) is still out. The Jazz are playing more small ball with Joe Johnson at the four, so Ingles should still see a healthy amount of minutes. His upside isn't the greatest when Hood is active, though. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 3:29 pm
  • Leandro Barbosa (illness) questionable Tues
    Leandro Barbosa (illness) is questionable to play Tuesday vs. Miami.

    Advice: Devin Booker (ankle) and Ronnie Price (leg) are also questionable, and if none of these guys can give it a go on Tuesday night, Tyler Ulis and T.J. Warren will be forced into heavy minutes. Barbosa is not worth a roster spot in any scenario. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 1:57 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick, Harris out Tuesday vs. DET
    Sean Kilpatrick (left hamstring) and Joe Harris (shoulder) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: With both these guys set to spend Tuesday night on the sidelines, and Jeremy Lin (ankle) looking unlikely, Brook Lopez will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense, and there will be more minutes available for guys like Caris LeVert and K.J. McDaniels. LeVert could be someone to consider using as a streamer on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 1:36 pm
  • Garrett Temple hot from the perimeter
    Garrett Temple scored 15 points while hitting all three of his attempts from behind the arc in Sunday's 118-102 loss in San Antonio.

    Advice: Temple matched his best shooting night since returning from a long-term hamstring injury, and this was just the second time he played in a back-to-back situation since coming back March 5. The last time he struggled in both ends of the back-to-back, but he obviously excelled this time around. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 7:17 pm
  • Georgios Papagiannis grabs 10 more boards
    Georgios Papagiannis scored six points with 10 rebounds, a steal and a blocked shots in 24 minutes against the Kings on Sunday.

    Advice: Head coach Dave Joerger has decided the remove the bubble wrap from the rookie and see what the Greek-born 7-footer can do. Papagiannis is averaging 10.0 points and 10.5 rebounds per game over his past two outings. If he continues to see 15-20 minutes per game, which is a good bet down the stretch, Papagiannis could be quite the addition for fantasy owners in deeper leagues in search of an effective big man, especially in rotisserie formats. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 7:01 pm
  • Kent Bazemore has right knee bone bruise
    Kent Bazemore has a right knee bone bruise and will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days.

    Advice: He suffered the injury on Saturday night and did not return. Bazemore had an MRI to confirm the diagnosis and the Hawks will now have to move on to start this week without 40 percent of their starting lineup -- Paul Millsap (knee) is out for two games. With those two out, Ersan Ilyasova will be firing away from three, Tim Hardaway Jr. will get big minutes, Taurean Prince should play more than 20 minutes, the Hawks will likely use Malcolm Delaney at the two and maybe even DeAndre Bembry gets in the mix again. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 1:34 pm
  • Leandro Barbosa is out for Sunday night
    Leandro Barbosa (illness) will not play against the Pistons on Sunday.

    Advice: That makes it 2.5 games for Barbosa with this illness. If Devin Booker (ankle) can't go, the only natural shooting guard the team will have will be newly-signed Jarell Eddie. Barbosa can remain on the wire in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 10:59 am
  • Andre Iguodala scores 15 off bench
    Andre Iguodala scored 15 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

    Advice: He may be one of the sneakiest players in fantasy right now with fourth-round value since the break. Iguodala does a little bit of everything, he's making his free throws at a reasonable rate and his 1.5 steals are top notch for a waiver add. Iggy should hold value for at least a couple weeks, but beware of some possible rest. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 10:45 pm
  • Khris Middleton scores 11 points
    Khris Middleton scored 11 points with two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: The minutes were solid and he likely would've been in the mid-30s had the Bucks been in this game. Middleton is heavily involved in the offense and is playing on the ball a lot more than expected after he said he was focusing more on shooting late in his rehab. We're not expecting him to rest until the Bucks have something clinched, so keep rolling Middleton out there. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 10:33 pm
  • Joe Ingles scores 10 points in start
    Joe Ingles scored 10 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: The Jazz may continue to hold Rodney Hood (knee) out to play it safe for next month, which should allow Ingles to get minutes in the 30s. He was tied for the league lead in 3-point percentage, but going 1-of-5 tonight dropped him to second behind Otto Porter. Ingles is a decent player to ride in the short term, but his value will likely drop once the Jazz are whole again. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 8:27 pm
  • Taurean Prince scores eight with three blocks
    Taurean Prince scored eight points with six rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 31 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: That's multiple blocks in three of his last four games. In that span, Prince averaged 11.5 points, 4.0 boards, 1.3 dimes, 0.8 steals, 2.3 blocks and 1.5 treys. Some of this is due to the Hawks getting blown out and Paul Millsap (knee) not playing gave Prince more minutes at SF, so Prince is still only worth a look in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 5:29 pm
  • Kent Bazemore suffers right knee contusion
    Kent Bazemore suffered a right knee contusion in the fourth quarter on Saturday.

    Advice: He drove to the basket and his had some contact on the drive, but he was walking around fine. He did not return because the game was basically over after his injury. Bazemore did not go to the locker room right away and had the trainer look at him on the bench. Bazemore finished with 12 points, two assists and one block in 32 minutes. This injury didn't look serious. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 5:23 pm
  • Garrett Temple plays 28 minutes
    Garrett Temple scored seven points with three rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: He took some friendly fire from Kosta Koufos to the groin, but he was OK after a trip to the bench. While Temple did start, his time in the first unit likely won't be lasting very long. Even after a decent line today, he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues with the Kings going so young these days. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 2:38 pm
  • Georgios Papagiannis logs first double-double
    Georgis Papagiannis turned in career-highs 14 points and 11 rebounds for his first NBA double-double of his career against the Thunder on Saturday, adding one assist, one block and one steal in 22 minutes.

    Advice: It was obviously his best game. His defense was better, he had his first make outside of the paint, showed an array of post moves, and only committed two fouls. The days of Papa G getting DNP-CDs are probably over and he's likely looking at close to 20 minutes in the short term and possibly more after that. It's also worth mentioning this game comes with both Anthony Tolliver and Kosta Koufos playing -- one or both will likely rest on Sunday. He's not quite worth adding in standard leagues, but he's trending up for owners in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 2:27 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) out again Sunday
    Sean Kilpatrick (strained left hamstring) will not play against the Mavs on Sunday.

    Advice: The Nets continue to rule him out early and it's possible he's out for several games given how careful the Nets are. He should be dropped in most fantasy leagues. Meanwhile, Caris LeVert is trending up and played both ends of a back-to-back set, so he's a decent pickup right now. K.J. McDaniels is also getting minutes. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 2:02 pm
  • Garrett Temple back in the starting lineup
    Garrett Temple will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: With Arron Afflalo out, there should be a decent amount of minutes going to Temple tonight. He's still not going to be a fantasy option with the Kings going young. Malachi Richardson (hamstring) returning would also take minutes from him Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 11:47 am
  • Khris Middleton scores season-high 30 points
    Khris Middleton scored a season-high 30 points in Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: He missed his only two 3-point attempts, but finished 11-of-18 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line with two rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes. Middleton has played 30+ minutes in nine out of his last 10 games and hasn't rested since Feb. 27, so double check to make sure he's active for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors in Golden State.
