  • Shabazz Muhammad could be moved soon?
    Shabazz Muhammad could be involved in a potential trade between the Wolves and Pistons.

    Advice: The two teams are discussing a potential PG swap of Reggie Jackson for Ricky Rubio, but ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting that the deal could involve other players such as Muhammad. We'd have to know what other pieces are involved before speculating on Muhammad's potential value in Detroit, but he doesn't have much upside and isn't worth stashing in most leagues. To be clear, a deal isn't imminent. Rotoworld.com 23 minutes ago
  • Alexis Ajinca a healthy inactive
    Alexis Ajinca is a healthy inactive for Friday against the Nets.

    Advice: There is no reason to play him against the NBA's fastest team. In other news, Ajinca denied reports of him asking for a trade. He needs a lot of things to happen to get playing time. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:49 pm
  • Ty Lawson says he will play against Memphis
    Ty Lawson (ankle) said he will play against Memphis on Friday night.

    Advice: He went through warmups and apparently everything went well. The Kings were ditching their two-PG lineups earlier this month, but it may be back out of necessity due to the Rudy Gay (Achilles) injury. Garrett Temple is still worth a look in standard leagues even though he'll play more two and three. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:57 pm
  • Ty Lawson will be a game-time call
    Ty Lawson (ankle) will be a game-time call to face the Grizzlies on Friday.

    Advice: He is going to warm up to see how he feels. Lawson had the same scenario last time and was expected to play, but he did not. If he can't go, Garrett Temple should get heavy run as a combo guard behind a busy Darren Collison. Arron Afflalo would also play more, but isn't a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:48 pm
  • Justin Hamilton to start at PF on Friday
    With Trevor Booker (rest) sitting out, Justin Hamilton will start at power forward on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

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

    Advice: It's the front end of a back-to-back set and Kilpatrick will get his first rest day. For tonight, there will be more minutes going to Caris LeVert, Joe Harris, Bojan Bogdanovic and Rondae-Hollis Jefferson. Kilpatrick has lost a lot of his luster and isn't worth owning in standard leagues. By the way, expect rest coming for other Nets on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:41 pm
  • Norman Powell starting over Pascal Siakam
    Norman Powell will start and Pascal Siakam will move to the bench against the Hornets on Friday.

    Advice: With the Raptors thin on power forwards, it makes sense. This will allow DeMarre Carroll to guard a smaller four in Marvin Williams to open up minutes for Powell and Terrence Ross. Powell has been great as a starter, but he's still a slight risk to use even at his cheap price. Carroll is good to go. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:38 pm
  • Delon Wright is active for Friday
    Delon Wright is active to face the Hornets on Friday.

    Advice: It's the first time he's active after his off-season shoulder surgery. Wright is not expected to be in the rotation, but he could get garbage time if Kyle Lowry's revenge All-Star snub leads to a blowout. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:27 pm
  • C.J. Watson will start at shooting guard
    C.J. Watson will start at shooting guard against the Bucks on Friday.

    Advice: With Evan Fournier (foot, heel) and Jodie Meeks (thumb) out, the move makes sense as coach Frank Vogel sticks with his rotation. After the Meeks injury, the shooting guard minutes breakdown went 10 minutes for Watson, seven minutes for D.J. Augustin and three minutes for Mario Hezonja. Watson should get the bulk of the minutes at shooting guard, but he's a very risky DFS play or pickup in deep leagues. We'll see if Mario gets some SG minutes tonight, but he's not a pickup just yet. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:22 pm
  • Lucas Nogueira out again for Friday
    Lucas Noguiera (concussion) will not play on Friday against the Hornets.

    Advice: There should be plenty of run going to a suddenly hot Jonas Valanciunas. Jared Sullinger also was the first backup center in the last game, which figures to happen yet again today. There were also four spare minutes for Jakob Poeltl as the third-string center. We should see a lot of small-ball fours in this matchup. Nogueira is still a stash in most cases. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:09 pm
  • Stein confirms report on P.J. Tucker
    ESPN's Marc Stein confirmed the Suns are looking for a first-round pick in a P.J. Tucker deal.

    Advice: This coincides with a local Arizona report, saying the Suns still have some interest in trying to resign Tucker. In a good portion of coach Earl Watson's post-game interviews, he talks about Tucker helping the team's identity, so the coach clearly likes having him around the young players. If Tucker is dealt, T.J. Warren would be a big winner while the Suns may get a look at Dragan Bender playing more three. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:14 pm
  • Arron Afflalo on the block?
    ESPN's Marc Stein reports Arron Afflalo and Ben McLemore have "as the most likely Kings to be dealt."

    Advice: Stein adds that McLemore is "first and foremost" on the block, which was already reported to a lesser degree. The Kings are really in a tight spot because without Rudy Gay (Achilles) they're very unlikely to make the playoffs unless they unload future assets. Afflalo may actually be the starter with Gay out, but he has very little value right now. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:06 pm
  • Nogueira (concussion) unlikely to play Friday
    Lucas Nogueira (concussion) appears unlikely to play Friday vs. the Hornets. With Patrick Patterson (knee) also expected to miss Friday's game, Paskal Siakam will likely to start. Norman Powell and Terrence Ross could also see additional minutes if the Raps choose to play small ball.

    Advice: Nogueira also missed Wednesday's game due to the lingering effects of his brain injury. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:35 am
  • Report: Jusuf Nurkic 'sure' to be traded
    According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Jusuf Nurkic is "sure" to be traded prior to the February trade deadline.

    Advice: Per Stein: "Sources say that the Nuggets, having acknowledged that Nikola Jokic and Nurkic didn't click as a pairing, are actively working to find Nurkic a new home that would give him the chance he deserves to be a front-line center." A trade is necessary to revive Nurkic's dying fantasy value. With Jokic playing at an incredibly high level, Nurk simply wastes away on the Denver bench. A trade would be best for all parties involved. It would also clear out more minutes for Kenneth Faried. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:04 am
  • Ty Lawson (ankle) questionable for Friday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Memphis.

    Advice: Lawson did not play Wednesday after twisting his ankle in the second half of Sunday's game. Darren Collison is a tempting DFS play if Lawson does not suit on Friday. Collison played well on Wednesday, finishing with 11 points, nine assists and four steals in 37 minutes. Garrett Temple played 29 minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:37 am
  • C.J. Wilcox (knee) will not play Friday
    C.J. Wilcox (knee tendinitis) will not play Friday vs. Milwaukee.

    Advice: Wilcox is has played only spot minutes this season, averaging just 0.9 points and less than five minutes per game. However, with Evan Fournier (heel) and Jodie Meeks (thumb) both sidelined, Orlando could have used Wilcox this weekend. Instead, the Magic will rely on Mario Hezonja, C.J. Watson and D.J. Augustin. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:26 am
  • David Lee scores 10 points with 16 boards
    David Lee grabbed a season-high 16 boards in a start for Pau Gasol (hand) on Thursday against the Nuggets, adding 10 points, two assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

    Advice: When he's in shape and is playing motivated, he has a similar skill set to Gasol right now. Coach Gregg Popovich said Lee was "fantastic" in this game, which isn't too surprising based on his previous starts. In those previous three, Lee averaged 8.7 points, 9.3 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.3 blocks in 27.0 minutes. He should have some low-end value while Gasol is out for the next month or so, so he's worth a look in standard leagues for anyone needing a big man for points, boards and percentages. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Davis Bertans scores four points
    Davis Bertans scored four points with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    Advice: When Bertans does get minutes, it's usually behind LaMarcus Aldridge. In this game, he only played next to LMA for four minutes and he actually played well overall today. Over the last 15 games, Aldridge has played only 3.9 percent of his minutes next to Bertans. He's only a pickup if you're desperate with Dewayne Dedmon and David Lee already picked up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Jusuf Nurkic gets 14 minutes
    Jusuf Nurkic scored five points with one rebound, one block and one turnover in 14 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday.

    Advice: The Nuggets had some success with Nurkic next to Nikola Jokic last year and gave it a go briefly in this game. This was also likely due to Wilson Chandler (personal) not playing, so the needle doesn't move much on Nurk here. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:19 pm
  • P.J. Tucker scores just two points
    P.J. Tucker scored two points with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 29 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday.

    Advice: Coach Earl Watson always plays Tucker against top-notch wings, so that explains the playing time. As you can see with his stat line, he's not really doing much with his minutes. Tucker has actually been a ninth-round guy in his last 10, but a possible trade and a low upside makes him a borderline asset in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:38 pm
  • P.J. Tucker drawing interest around the NBA
    P.J. Tucker is reportedly drawing interest from around the league.

    Advice: Tucker is on the final year of an affordable deal, as he's on the books for just $5.3 million. With the Suns rebuilding, it's no secret that they will listen to offers for their defensive stopper. According to this report, the Clippers, Bulls, Cavaliers, Timberwolves and Hawks all have interest in Tucker, but Suns GM Ryan McDonough said earlier in the week that he doesn't like taking back late-round picks in deals which could complicate things in trade talks. If the Suns can find a new home for Tucker, T.J. Warren will get a bump and Dragan Bender will have a larger role. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:22 am
  • Arron Afflalo gets the start on Wednesday
    Arron Afflalo made a start against the Pacers on Wednesday with 11 points, one rebound, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He could be a bigger part of the rotation again with Rudy Gay (Achilles) likely out for the season. Although, Afflalo was a DNP-CD at times even when Gay missed games last month. His upside is really low anyway, so he's more of a deep-league pickup. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:23 pm
  • Arron Afflalo starts, Garrett Temple to bench
    Arron Afflalo will start and Garrett Temple will move to the bench on Wednesday against the Pacers.

    Advice: It makes sense because the Kings need Temple to be the backup point guard. Temple's value is fine off the bench while Afflalo can stay on the wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:30 pm
  • Ty Lawson (ankle) ruled out for Wednesday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He tried to test out his ankle, but apparently wasn't as healthy as expected. With Lawson out tonight. Garrett Temple should get some minutes as the backup point guard to go with some minutes at the two. Darren Collison is also coming off a 21-pont game and could have some success against his former team. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:24 pm
  • Ty Lawson expected to play on Wednesday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) remains expected to play on Wednesday against the Pacers.

    Advice: This is a pretty much non-update, but it may also be the last one with how the Kings report their injuries. For now, expect Lawson to play and get minutes in the low 20s. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:14 pm
  • Lucas Nogueira will not play on Wednesday
    Lucas Nogueira (concussion) will not play on Wednesday against the 76ers.

    Advice: He had some blurred vision on Tuesday and is still in the concussion protocol. Nogueira's fantasy owners should probably just sit tight and hope he can return this weekend. With him out, Paskal Siakam is likely to start, but fantasy owners should steer clear. The Raptors could also go small to give more run to Norman Powell and Terrence Ross. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:58 pm
  • Shabazz Muhammad scores 15 in 23 mins
    Shabazz Muhammad scored 15 points in 23 minutes vs. the Spurs on Tuesday, adding four rebounds and two triples.

    Advice: A report by Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical indicated that the Wolves are looking to include Muhammad in a package deal with Ricky Rubio, so he could be on his way to a new city before the Feb. 23 trade deadline. Considering coach Tom Thibodeau likes to give all his starters 30+ minutes a night, a move away from Minnesota might not be a bad thing. With that said, Muhammad is just a pure scorer and has very little upside in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:51 pm
  • Justin Hamilton returns to bench, scores 9
    Justin Hamilton returned to the bench on Tuesday vs. the Raptors, scoring nine points on 4-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, one assist and one triple in 13 minutes.

    Advice: That's an impressive stat line in limited minutes, but Hamilton usually doesn't have much value while Brook Lopez is active. Lopez did tweak his right ankle in the loss, so put Hamilton on your radar in case Lopez misses Friday's game vs. the Pelicans. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:09 pm
  • Nogueira (blurred vision) done for night
    Lucas Nogueira (blurred vision) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: He has blurred vision in his left eye and will be re-evaluated again after the game. He was also being evaluated for a concussion, but we should know more about that soon. Paskal Siakam started the second half and Jakop Poeltl could play a bit more as well. Bebe finished with three points (a trey) and two rebounds in seven minutes. There are no great speculative pickups here. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:50 pm
  • Lucas Nogueira (head) goes to locker room
    Lucas Nogueira was playing well Tuesday before taking a hard forearm to the face, which caused him to leave the game and head to the locker room.

    Advice: He is undergoing the concussion protocol in the locker room, so hopefully we'll know more very soon. He easily walked off under his own power and looked OK, but don't make any roster moves until we know more. He had three points (a trey) and two rebounds in seven minutes before heading for the locker room. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:00 pm
  • Ty Lawson (ankle) probable for Wednesday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Lawson twisted his left ankle in the second half of the Sunday's game vs. OKC and was unable to return. However, it appears that the injury is minor and that Lawson "isn't expecting to miss" the Kings next game, which is Wednesday vs. Indiana. Stay tuned for a formal update from the team regarding his status. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:12 am
  • P.J. Tucker hauls in season-high 13 boards
    P.J. Tucker tied his season high with 13 rebounds and added eight points and two steals in 27 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: Tucker is averaging just 6.2 points over his last five games, but also 7.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 29 minutes a game. He doesn't hit threes, hand out assists or block shots, and with his shaky field goal percentage and lack of scoring, is a borderline player to target in fantasy leagues. Chances are you can do better off your waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:55 pm
  • Ty Lawson exits Sunday's game vs. OKC
    Ty Lawson (ankle) twisted his left ankle and will miss the remainder of Sunday's game against the Thunder.

    Advice: Lawson played 20 minutes and scored four points with four assists, one rebound and one steal before leaving the game. If he misses any time, Darren Collison and Garrett Temple will get a boost. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:22 pm
  • Justin Hamilton swats career-high three shots
    Justin Hamilton started vs. the Rockets on Wednesday, posting a career-high three blocks with 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting, three boards and two assists in just 18 minutes.

    Advice: Brook Lopez was resting tonight and this highlights Hamilton's potential role should the Nets trade Lopez this season, even though his minutes were depressed due to the Rockets' small-ball attack, as well as the lopsided score. The Nets would likely get back draft picks and/or prospects if they dealt Lopez, rather than current rotation players, which might leave Hamilton as the default starting center. That's purely speculative at the moment, but he's worth keeping in the back of your mind -- just don't expect copious swats, as tonight's fluky total all came in the first quarter. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:23 pm
  • Norman Powell scores 21 points off the bench
    Norman Powell got hot off the bench during Sunday's blowout win over the Knicks, tallying 21 points, one 3-pointer, one rebound, one steal and two turnovers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Powell went 7-of-13 from the field and 6-of-6 from the charity stripe, giving him a solid true shooting percentage of 67.1 on the evening as he took advantage of the Knicks' lackluster effort on defense. Powell got some extended minutes tonight with the game being a blowout, but as long as DeMarre Carroll is healthy, Powell's playing time will be too inconsistent to depend on him in standard settings. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:11 pm
  • Justin Hamilton will start Sunday vs. Houston
    Justin Hamilton will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockets, with Brook Lopez (rest) unavailable.

    Advice: Hamilton has been hit-or-miss in his three starts this season, owning averages of just 5.7 points, 4.0 boards, 1.0 steal, 1.0 block and 1.0 triple on 31.6 percent shooting over 23.3 minutes per game, so he's not much more than a punt play in daily leagues. Head coach Kenny Atkinson also said that Luis Scola and Quincy Acy will get some minutes with Lopez out, but neither of those guys can be considered viable targets in most settings. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:23 pm
  • P.J. Tucker scores six points
    P.J. Tucker scored six points with five rebounds, two assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: He did get the business from Kawhi Leonard for most of this game, but Tucker came up big late to get the big win. He'll have some low-end value while the Suns are technically in playoff contention, but he's only a guy on deep-league radars. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:03 pm
  • Ty Lawson scores 17 points vs. Cavs
    Ty Lawson scored 17 points with four rebounds, four assists and three turnovers in 26 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

    Advice: The Kings are really starting to ditch the two-PG lineups, which is going to hurt Lawson and Darren Collison, who scored 13 points with one rebound, four assists and two 3-pointers. Lawson is trending back down and is only a borderline asset in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:53 pm
  • Bebe blocks four shots in win
    Lucas Nogueira scored 10 points with nine rebounds, two assists and four blocks in 30 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He has been great when teams attack him as a weak-side helper and with his 2.0 blocks per game in just 26.4 minutes per game over his last five. For what it's worth, the Nogueira and Jonas Valanciunas lineup didn't even work today in this blowout win with a -6.9 net rating in 12 minutes, and it's only a so-so +2.2 in their last 15 games -- used in seven games in that span. Bebe should still be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:21 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick has a rough game vs. TOR
    Sean Kilpatrick played off the ball for most of his 22 minutes against the Raptors on Friday, scoring six points with two rebounds and no assists.

    Advice: After Kilpatrick saw the offense fall apart as the point guard down the stretch on Thursday, there's a chance coach Kenny Atkinson has lost confidence in him as a ball handler. He's really been a letdown since Jeremy Lin (hamstring) has been out, so his owners can probably start weighing their options. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:57 pm
  • Lucas Nogueira getting the start at PF
    Lucas Nogueira is getting the start at power forward against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: Going with Bebe against the NBA's fastest team is an interesting move, so we'll see how it works for the Raptors. He's made two previous starts at PF, averaging 6.5 points, 7.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 steals. He's worth owning in standard leagues right now. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:13 pm
  • Delon Wright cleared for practice
    Delon Wright (shoulder) has been cleared for team practice.

    Advice: Wright dropped a "great news" with a smiley face emoji on Twitter yesterday, so now we know why. Wright is still only going to be third on the depth chart, but he could be worth a look in DFS if the Raptors have to sit Kyle Lowry and/or Cory Joseph. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:11 pm
  • Alexis Ajinca doesn't score
    Alexis Ajinca did not score in three minutes on Thursday with one rebound and one steal.

    Advice: He checked during the first half, looked awful for three minutes, and never came back in. Ajinca sure does know how to get into coach Alvin Gentry's doghouse. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:37 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick scores 18 points in loss
    Sean Kilpatrick scored 18 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

    Advice: Isaiah Whitehead (knee) did not return and the lack of a point guard hurt the Nets with seven turnovers in the fourth quarter. After Spencer Dinwiddie checked out, Kilpatrick was running the offense down the stretch, which could continue if Whitehead needs to miss more time. After a horrendous start to his 2017, Kilpatrick has improved over his last three. If he was dropped go ahead and give him a look. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:57 pm
  • Jusuf Nurkic plays just eight minutes
    Jusuf Nurkic scored three points with two rebounds and one block in eight minutes against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: He played two-plus minutes in the first quarter and just under five-plus minutes in the second quarter. Kenneth Faried had it going as the five man and Nikola Jokic was terrific, so there wasn't an opportunity for Nurkic today. He's going to be inconsistent and is more of a stash with an uncertain role on the Nuggets. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:28 pm
  • Shabazz Muhammad scores 20 pts on 7-of-11 FGs
    Shabazz Muhammad looked good again on Wednesday, making 7-of-11 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs to finish with 20 points, seven rebounds, one assist and zero turnovers in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Muhammad made two 3-pointers and he's simply on fire lately, scoring double-digit points in seven of his last nine games. In those contests, he's made a combined 52.6 percent FGs and 89.5 percent FTs, with 1.4 triples per game. Give him a look if you need offense, but don't expect much else -- in the same nine-game span, he added a mere 3.3 boards, 0.1 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.1 blocks. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:08 pm
  • Alexis Ajinca would welcome a trade or buyout
    Alexis Ajinca told French publication L'Equipe that he would welcome a trade or buyout from the Pelicans.

    Advice: Ajinca has fallen out of the rotation in New Orleans, and there's no reason to believe head coach Alvin Gentry will suddenly reverse course on this move. Here are his words, per Google translate: "The solution, it would be a trade, after if the club wants to make a buyout, we will see what they ask but normally it would be an exchange." Ajinca is unlikely to have much value, regardless of where he winds up. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:06 am
  • Davis Bertans scores 11 w/ three triples
    Davis Bertans scored 11 points with three triples in Tuesday's loss to the Bucks.

    Advice: David Lee (knee) returned to action tonight, but Bertans remained in the rotation because LaMarcus Aldridge was out with an illness. Bertans added two assists and one block in 19 minutes, and he was coming off a monster 21-point performance on Saturday with four triples. The Spurs may have found another gem, but he's unlikely to be a factor when the Spurs are at full strength. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:34 pm
  • David Lee scores 10 points in start
    David Lee started in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (illness) on Tuesday vs. the Bucks and scored 10 points on 5-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He averaged 8.0 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.5 assist and 1.0 steal in two previous starts this season, so he's a decent punt in DFS every time he draws a start. Assuming Aldridge returns on Thursday vs. the Lakers, Lee will be an afterthought very soon. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:27 pm
  • Lucas Nogueira fills stat sheet in win
    Lucas Nogueira played 21 minutes and hit 3-of-4 shots for seven points, three rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks in Tuesday's win over the Celtics.

    Advice: Nogueira doesn't score much, but is averaging 4.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 1.8 blocks over his last five games. Maybe you can use him in a Roto league if you need blocks, but his lack of scoring makes him hard to roster in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:30 pm
  • Norman Powell back to the bench Tuesday
    Patrick Patterson will return to Toronto's starting lineup on Tuesday vs. Boston, bumping Norman Powell back to the bench.

    Advice: Prior to the start on Saturday, Powell had played more than 12 minutes just once in the Raptors previous seven games. Thus, there is limited fantasy impact as a result of his slide back to a reserve role. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:28 pm
  • David Lee to start at PF on Tuesday
    David Lee will start in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (illness) on Tuesday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: Lee did not play in the Spurs previous game on Saturday due to a minor knee injury, but practiced on Monday and is ready to roll. Lee has started two games this season and is averaging 8.0 points and 10.5 rebounds in those two contests. He is worth considering as a DFS tournament play due to his cheap salary. Davis Bertans, who played very well on Saturday, will back Lee up and could see 20-plus minutes. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:55 pm
