  • Andre Roberson scores eight in 30 minutes
    Andre Roberson scored eight points with six rebounds, two assists and two steals in 30 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Advice: His most impressive feat today was that he missed four free throws with no time off the clock. He missed two, grabbed the rebound off the second miss and was fouled right away, and missed his next two. On the positive side, Roberson played well on defense as per usual, but he doesn't have much fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:46 pm
  • Ben McLemore will start on Saturday night
    Ben McLemore will start on Saturday night against the Pelicans.

    Advice: With Andrew Harrison and Mario Chalmers out, B-Mac could be looking at over 30 minutes today. He had a terrific game during a win over the Kings with 21 points in 27 minutes, so J.B. Bickerstaff could give him a long leash today. He's not really worth owning long term, but give him a look if you have dead weight. He's a tourney option in DFS, too. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:25 pm
  • Mario Chalmers (shoulder) will not play vs NO
    Mario Chalmers (shoulder) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: The Grizzlies are going to be a little shorthanded and they'll be turning Ben McLemore and Wayne Selden a bunch today. Chalmers doesn't really have enough fantasy value when healthy. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:24 pm
  • Wayne Ellington starting for Goran Dragic
    Wayne Ellington is starting for Goran Dragic (knee) against the Hornets on Saturday.

    Advice: Presumably, this means Dragic is not going to play today. Ellington is going to be firing away and should get over 35 minutes. Coach Erik Spoelstra wants him to take 20 treys, so today could be the day. He's worth owning in standard leagues while the Heat are so shorthanded. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:20 pm
  • Mario Chalmers (shoulder) is a game-time call
    Mario Chalmers (shoulder) is a game-time call against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: He played 21 minutes against the Kings on Friday, so chances are this is a minor injury. If he's out, the Grizzlies could extend Tyreke Evans' minutes while guys like Wayne Selden and Ben McLemore would benefit. Kobi Simmons hasn't played lately. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:56 pm
  • Ben McLemore (knee) will play vs. Pelicans
    Ben McLemore (knee) will play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: He had a revenge game against the Kings on Friday with 21 points in 27 minutes and he may actually see around 30 minutes again today with Andrew Harrison out out the lineup. It's always risky to run out B-Mac in fantasy, but it's not the worst idea today. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:54 pm
  • Andre Roberson back up to normal run
    Andre Roberson is expected to play his normal amount of minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Advice: He played just 17 minutes on Wednesday, so Roberson should be in the upper 20s as the primary defender on LeBron James. He has more value in reality than in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:28 am
  • Mario Chalmers (shoulder) questionable
    Mario Chalmers (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Andrew Harrison (left shoulder) is also listed as questionable, and of course Mike Conley (Achilles) is still sidelined, so Memphis may have to get creative at PG on Saturday. We should have a definitive update on Chalmers and Harrison's status at around 5:30 pm EST. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:20 am
  • Brandan Wright (illness) ruled out Saturday
    Brandan Wright (illness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Wright, who had missed three straight games, was available to return Friday. However, he was a DNP-CD. Now he's back on the inactive list. Wright, who hasn't logged more than 15 minutes in a game since December 26th, should be left on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:01 am
  • James Ennis (right calf) ruled out Saturday
    James Ennis (right calf) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: This will be the second straight game Ennis has missed. Chandler Parsons (illness, right knee soreness) has also been ruled out and Ben McLemore (knee soreness) is listed as questionable, so the Grizz could be left with little depth on the wing on Saturday. Dillon Brooks will again be asked to log major minutes and could be looking at another big scoring night. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:00 am
  • McLemore, Chalmers, Harrison questionable
    Mario Chalmers (shoulder), Andrew Harrison (shoulder) and Ben McLemore (knee soreness) are listed as questionable on the injury report for Saturday's game vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: McLemore shockingly erupted for 21 points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and three triples in 27 minutes on Friday but apparently is now dealing with soreness in his knee. With Chandler Parsons (illness, knee) and James Ennis III (calf) already ruled out, the Grizz may be very shorthanded on Saturday. Tyreke Evans, Wayne Selden and Dillon Brooks will likely log all the minutes they can handle. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:48 am
  • Aron Baynes (illness) unable to practice Sat
    Aron Baynes (illness) was unable to practice on Saturday.

    Advice: For now, we'll consider Baynes questionable for Sunday's afternoon game vs. the Magic. If Baynes is unable to suit up on Sunday, Al Horford, Daniel Theis and Marcus Morris would likely divvy up additional minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:25 am
     
  • Sterling Brown and Tony Snell to start Sat
    Coach Jason Kidd said that Sterling Brown and Tony Snell will start in place of Giannis Antetokounmpo (knee) and Malcolm Brogdon (personal) Saturday vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Snell has started 29 games for the Bucks this season. He's averaged 7.9 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 30.6 minutes over those 29 starts. Brogdon is attending to a personal family matter. The Bucks announced on Saturday that Antetokounmpo will miss Milwaukee's next two games to manage soreness in his right knee. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:20 am
  • Tyler Ennis scores seven points
    Tyler Ennis scored seven points with one rebound, five assists and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

    Advice: He was outplayed by Alex Caruso for the second straight night, so maybe coach Luke Walton will make a move there. Either way, you probably shouldn't be counting on Ennis even with Lonzo Ball (knee) needing to go through a practice before he's suiting up for games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:08 pm
  • Corey Brewer grabs seven assists in win
    Corey Brewer finished with four points and seven assists over 29 minutes in Friday's 99-86 win against Indiana.

    Advice: Brewer hit just 2-of-6 from the field, including 0-of-2 from behind the 3-point line, while adding two steals. He is averaging 20.3 minutes per game over his past three outings, but he is posting just 3.7 points, 4.0 rebound and 1.3 steals per game during the span. Despite the fact he was in the starting five on Friday, he is only a low-end asset in the deepest of fantasy leagues while starting for Brandon Ingram (ankle). He can be left to the waiver wire in most formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:07 pm
     
  • Jordan Clarkson drops 33 points in home win
    Jordan Clarkson finished with a season-high 33 points, seven assists and seven rebounds in Friday's 99-86 win against the Pacers.

    Advice: Clarkson finished 14-of-19 from the field, including 3-of-6 from behind the 3-point line. It Clarkson's fifth-career 30-point game, and his first of the season. The Lakers needed every bit of it, as they had a dismal 2-of-14 night from the free-throw stripe. It was the worst percentage from the stripe by a winning NBA team since 1963. Five players took at least one free throw without a make, and only Clarkson was 2-of-3 to hit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:41 pm
  • Trey Burke scores seven, closes vs. Utah
    Trey Burke scored seven points with two rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: Revenge game? Maybe not, but Burke gave the Knicks some good minutes as he took time from Frank Ntilikina, and he even played down the stretch. This probably won't last long, so leave Burke unless you're truly desperate at point guard. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Jarrett Jack scores six points vs. Utah
    Jarrett Jack scored six points with one rebound, six assists and one turnover in 28 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: He did not close this game out with Trey Burke getting the minutes at the one to finish this game. Jack has been way above expectations on the year, but this was his third underwhelming game in a row, averaging 4.0 boards, 2.0 boards and 5.7 dimes in those outings. He's only a low-end fantasy point guard and will probably trend down. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:37 pm
     
  • Ugly outing for Lance Stephenson in L.A.
    Lance Stephenson (illness) was just 1-of-12 from the field, including 0-of-3 from behind the arc, finishing with three points on Friday against the Lakers.

    Advice: Stephenson was able to chip in with five rebounds, three assists and a steal, but it wasn't nearly enough to salvage the night for fantasy owners in 9-cat leagues. He has been under the weather over the past couple of games, yet at least attempted to play. However, going 1-of-18 from the field over the past two games while totaling seven points across his past three outings is helping no one. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:29 pm
  • Reggie Bullock back in the starting five
    Reggie Bullock (illness) returned to the lineup Friday against the Wizards, posting nine points on 3-of-5 shooting from behind the arc.

    Advice: Bullock is over a bout of bronchitis, and he was listed as a game-time decision for this one. He also chipped in with two assists and a blocked shot over 24 minutes. He is averaging just 5.5 points per game over his past two outings, and he has single-digit performances in four of his past five. If you normally rely upon him, keep him reserved in all fantasy leagues until he starts to produce with a little more consistency. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:27 pm
  • Brandan Wright picks up a DNP-CD
    Brandan Wright picked up a DNP-CD on Friday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: He was "available" to play, but he's not in the rotation right now. Deyonta Davis will continue backing up Marc Gasol and we don't see why Memphis would go away from that. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:10 pm
  • Ben McLemore goes off for 21 points
    Ben McLemore came out of nowhere to score 21 points against the Kings on Friday, hitting 6-of-13 shots and 6-of-6 free throws.

    Advice: Talk about a revenge game. McLemore was a DNP-CD in his previous two games and played a total of 15 minutes in January prior to tonight, but the Grizzlies let him have some fun against his former team. He added two rebounds, two assists, one steal and three triples in 27 minutes, and while he gave the coaching staff something to think about, fantasy owners can ignore him unless he earns a permanent spot in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:56 pm
  • Wayne Ellington scores 10 in 33 minutes
    Wayne Ellington scored 10 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Erik Spoelstra seems to like him in the second unit and Ellington did finish this game. He'll be taking close to 10 treys per game until Tyler Johnson (ankle) can return and Ellington should still have value after that because of no Dion Waiters. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:39 pm
  • Brandan Wright (illness) is available
    Brandan Wright (illness) is available to play on Friday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: He's been out of the rotation and Marc Gasol (illness) is playing, so Wright isn't a lock to see the floor. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:12 pm
  • Reggie Bullock (illness) is active Friday
    Reggie Bullock (illness) is active for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: He sat out of the morning shootaround and was considered "50/50" to play, but he'll give it a go and could see his normal allotment of minutes if he's feeling up to it. He's been inconsistent, but he does have some low-end value for his 3-pointers and steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:22 pm
  • Brandan Wright (illness) doubtful for Friday
    Brandan Wright (illness) was unable to participate in shootaround and is "likely doubtful" for Friday's game vs. Sacramento.

    Advice: Minimal fantasy impact here, as Wright has missed three straight games and hasn't logged more than 15 minutes in a game since December 26th. Also, Marc Gasol (illness) is expected to play Friday night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:13 am
  • Lance Stephenson fights through illness
    Lance Stephenson (illness) did not score with two rebounds and one assist in 10 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

    Advice: He went to the locker room and did return for four minutes after that. With the Pacers playing again on Friday, consider Stephenson questionable to play against the Lakers due to the illness that made him a game-time call today. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:16 pm
  • James Ennis (right calf) listed out Friday
    James Ennis (right calf) is listed as 'out' for Friday's game.

    Advice: Ennis logged 20 minutes vs. the Knicks on Wednesday but maybe he aggravated his calf injury in the process. His absence should open up more playing time for Wayne Selden, and maybe we'll see Ben McLemore back in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:12 pm
  • Wayne Ellington scores 11 points
    Wayne Ellington scored 11 points with five rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: It was a mild disappointment for anyone who used him in DFS, but he should still be better going forward. Coach Erik Spoelstra has talked about how he wants Ellington to shoot 20 treys in a game and he'll probably get a few more opportunities with Tyler Johnson (ankle) dinged up. He should be considered as a strong hold while the Heat look to replace Dion Waiters' shooting. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:10 pm
  • Andre Roberson solid in return Wednesday
    Andre Roberson returned to action on Wednesday with four points on 2-of-2 shooting, four rebounds, three steals, two assists, one block and zero turnovers.

    Advice: Roberson logged 17 minutes in his first action since late December. He looked sharp and is averaging 26.9 minutes on the season, but OKC didn't need to push him with the game decided in the third quarter. He's a non-entity in points leagues, but has some niche appeal for defensive stats. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:40 pm
  • Tyler Ennis starts, plays 20 minutes
    Tyler Ennis started Wednesday's game and had nine points, three rebounds and three assists, making 4-of-7 shots with one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

    Advice: Lonzo Ball (knee) was out again tonight so Ennis was tabbed to start alongside Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle and Brook Lopez. As long as Ball is day-to-day there's no real incentive to own Ennis anywhere. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:33 pm
  • James Ennis (calf) looks fine Wednesday
    James Ennis (calf) had four points on 2-of-6 shooting, three rebounds and three assists in a home win vs. the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Ennis' availability was a rare bit of good injury news for Memphis, which was playing without Marc Gasol, Mike Conley, Chandler Parsons and Brandan Wright. He was coming off a pair of solid games but should still be viewed skeptically for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:10 pm
  • James Ennis is available to play
    James Ennis (calf) is available to play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was called questionable to play on Tuesday from what was likely an injury on Monday. He should come off the bench and could be looking at minutes around 20. Ennis isn't worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:08 pm
  • Roberson starting, Ferguson to the bench
    Andre Roberson (knee) will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's matchup with the Lakers, sending Terrance Ferguson back to the bench.

    Advice: Roberson has missed the past eight games, so he could have his minutes monitored tonight. Neither Roberson nor Ferguson can be considered viable targets in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:28 pm
  • Brandan Wright will not play due to illness
    Brandan Wright (illness) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been out of the rotation anyway, so the Grizzlies won't miss him too much. Although, not having Marc Gasol (illness) means Deyonta Davis should have some extended run heading his way tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:23 pm
  • Andre Roberson (left knee) questionable
    Andre Roberson (left knee tendinitis) upgraded to questionable for Wednesday against the Lakers.

    Advice: He got some shots up on Tuesday and even went through practice on Sunday. Coach Billy Donovan talked a lot about his second unit playing well together, so chances are Roberson would be put back into the starting lineup. He's still not someone fantasy owners should count on in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:23 pm
  • James Ennis (calf) questionable for Wednesday
    James Ennis (right calf) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Knicks.

    Advice: This is the first we're hearing of a calf issue for Ennis, but we'll have a better idea on his status based on what he can do at Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he's out, his minutes will likely be divvied up between Dillon Brooks and Jarell Martin. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:03 pm
  • Andre Roberson (knee) gets up shots Tuesday
    Andre Roberson (knee) got up some shots during Tuesday's light practice.

    Advice: The Thunder just did some light shooting and watched film on Tuesday, so this isn't much of an update. We'll have a better idea on Roberson's status for tomorrow's game based on his activity level at Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if he's out again, Terrance Ferguson will get another start. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:01 pm
  • James Ennis plays well for Memphis
    James Ennis hit 4-of-6 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, three rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 21 minutes of Monday's win over the Lakers.

    Advice: Ennis had 12 points, five boards, a block and two 3-pointers in his previous game, making him worth a watchful eye right now. But Chandler Parsons should be back from his knee injury soon, which could hurt him. And even if Parsons remains out, Ennis would only be a deep-league option at this point. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:45 pm
  • Tyler Ennis quiet in start for Lakers
    Tyler Ennis started for Lonzo Ball (shoulder) on Monday and hit 3-of-6 shots for six points, two rebounds and three assists in 33 just 17 minutes.

    Advice: Gary Payton II made his debut for the Lakers tonight and played 12 minutes and Jordan Clarkson played 17 minutes in the loss. If Ball's not playing point guard for the Lakers, you probably don't want to be using one of the other ones in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:15 pm
  • Wayne Ellington scores 20, hits five triples
    Wayne Ellington bounced back nicely in Monday's 119-111 loss to the Bulls, scoring 20 points (6-of-13 FGs, 3-of-3 FTs) with five rebounds, one assist and five triples in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Ellington has been a hot waiver-wire pickup for weeks, especially now that Dion Waiters (ankle) is out for the season and Tyler Johnson (ankle) may need to miss some time. He's played 30+ minutes in 13 out of his last 14 games and has been an excellent 3-point specialist, averaging 3.5 treys in that span. Ellington and the Heat have three more games this week against the Bucks, Nets and Hornets. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:12 pm
  • Trey Burke makes his Knickerbocker debut
    Trey Burke made his first appearance for the Knicks, posting five points with two assists and a rebound in eight minutes off the bench Monday in Brooklyn.

    Advice: Burke received a nice ovation from the Knicks crowd that made its way to the Barclays Center, acknowledging him for his first time in orange and blue. He'll be operating as the third-string point guard behind Jarrett Jack and Frank Ntilikina, so he should remain on the waiver wire in all but the very deepest of fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:52 pm
  • Walton: Tyler Ennis starting for Lonzo (knee)
    Tyler Ennis will start vs. the Grizzlies on Monday, according to coach Luke Walton. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:54 pm
  • Reggie Bullock scores 20 in loss to Charlotte
    Reggie Bullock hit 8-of-13 shots and four 3-pointers for 20 points, four rebounds, one assist and three steals in 35 minutes of Monday's loss to Charlotte.

    Advice: Bullock usually scores and hits some 3-pointers, but the steals were a new wrinkle to his game today. Bullock was fading hard, scoring 10 or fewer points in three straight games, but looked fantastic today. He's mostly a one-trick pony that can score and hit some 3-pointers, so keep that in mind if you make a move on him. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:55 am
  • Jarrett Jack scores season-high 22 points
    Jarrett Jack scored a season-high 22 points on 9-of-14 shooting Sunday, to go with four rebounds, eight assists, two 3-pointers, three steals and five turnovers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: The Pelicans constantly left Jack wide open, and he consistently made them pay for it. He’s been connecting on a ridiculous 61.7 percent of his shots over the past four games to go with averages of 17.0 points, 8.5 assists, 1.0 triple, 1.5 steals and 3.8 turnovers per game. The scoring probably isn’t sustainable, but he’s worth owning in most leagues while he’s playing this well. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:50 pm
     
  • Andre Roberson (knee) out Monday vs. SAC
    Andre Roberson (knee) was a full participant in Sunday's light practice, but he will not play Monday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: "We didn’t have a lot of contact in practice, but he went through the entire practice, so he’s getting better," Thunder coach Billy Donovan said Sunday. While Roberson is improving, Monday will mark his eighth straight game on the sidelines, which will likely result in Terrence Ferguson earning another start. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:26 am
  • Knicks sign Trey Burke
    The Knicks have officially signed Trey Burke.

    Advice: It's a minimum deal for the remainder of the season. Burke did have a lot of success in the G-League, but he's not on the fantasy radar and should be firmly behind Jarrett Jack and Frank Ntilikina. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:03 am
  • Reggie Bullock logs 35 minutes w/ Johnson out
    Reggie Bullock missed a potentially game-tying layup at the buzzer vs. Chicago on Saturday, finishing with seven points on 3-of-9 shooting, five rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Stanley Johnson (hip) was out tonight due to tightness in his hip, which allowed Bullock to log unfettered minutes as the starting SF. Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy ruled out structural damage for Johnson, but Bullock should keep the starting gig even when he's healthy. He's been extremely efficient for the past month with 57.8% field goals and 83.3% free throws, while hitting 2.4 triples per game, so owners might as well ride the hot hand. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:49 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 19 points in OT win
    Jordan Clarkson helped the Lakers to their fourth-straight win on Saturday, scoring 19 points on 9-of-18 shooting to go with one 3-pointer, three boards, four assists and two turnovers in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Clarkson caught fire down the stretch, scoring 11 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter and overtime while rocking a 30.4 usage rate, and there really wasn't anything the Mavs could do to stop him. The Lakers are reportedly looking to ship Clarkson out of Los Angeles, so he probably bumped up his trade stock a bit with his clutch performance. In terms of fantasy hoops, a trade wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing for Clarkson, as his minutes have been sporadic with the Lakers this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:43 pm
  • Knicks to sign Trey Burke
    The Knicks will waive Ramon Sessions on Saturday to make room to sign Trey Burke, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

    Advice: Burke has appeared in 26 games for the Knicks G-League affiliate this season and is averaging 26.6 points, 5.3 assists and 2.7 3-pointers. However, he'll be the third-string point guard on the Knicks, behind Jarrett Jack and Frank Ntilikina. Burke can be left on waivers in standard fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:19 am
  • Tony Snell scores 11 points off the bench
    Tony Snell was good for 11 points in 22 minutes off the bench in Friday's 108-94 loss against the Warriors.

    Advice: Snell hit 4-of-7 from the field, including 3-of-5 from behind the 3-point line, while chipping in with three rebounds. It likely won't get him closer to supplanting Malcolm Brogdon in the starting five, but it won't hurt, either. He is worth scooping up in all fantasy leagues if available, as he could easily move back into the starting five sooner rather than later if Brogdon hits the skids. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:34 pm
  • Jarrett Jack scores 18 w/ 8 dimes vs. MIN
    Jarrett Jack had another strong game on Friday vs. the Wolves, scoring 18 points with eight assists, one rebound, one steal and two triples in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Ever since coach Jeff Hornacek said he was considering starting Frank Ntilikina, Jack has turned things up a notch. He's coming off a triple-double with 16 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists and two steals, and he's averaging 15.3 points, 8.6 assists, 4.6 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 0.7 triples over his last three games. His job is safe for now, so he belongs in fantasy lineups. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:50 pm
     
  • Lance Stephenson solid off the bench
    Lance Stephenson finished with 16 points and 11 rebounds across 30 minutes off the bench in Friday's 97-95 win against Cleveland.

    Advice: Stephenson did what he does best -- he gave the team a nice injection of offense and defense off the bench, and he got under the skin of LeBron James at one point, causing the four-time MVP to shove him away. He also added four assists, a steal and a blocked shot to make his fantasy owners smile from ear to ear. He'll look to keep it going on Monday in Phoenix in a very favorable matchup. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:43 pm
  • Andre Roberson (knee) ruled out Saturday
    Andre Roberson (left knee tendinitis) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Charlotte.

    Advice: Roberson reportedly went through parts of practice on Friday, but sat out the contact portions. He is inching his way towards a return but will likely need to get a full-contact practice under his belt before he is cleared to play. Terrance Ferguson is expected to draw another start on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:50 am
  • Reggie Bullock starts, plays 28 minutes
    Reggie Bullock started vs. the Nets on Wednesday and had seven points on 3-of-6 shooting, four rebounds, one 3-pointer and one steal in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Stan Van Gundy admitted it was a "mistake" to start Bullock ahead of Anthony Tolliver on Monday, against the Pelicans' big frontcourt. Those two will continue swapping starts depending upon the matchup, which makes it hard to trust either one in standard fantasy leagues. The return of Stanley Johnson (hip) tonight is just one more reason to avoid Bullock. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:03 pm
  • Tony Snell mostly nailed to the bench
    Tony Snell posted just five points with one rebound and one assist over 17 minutes in Wednesday's win against the Magic.

    Advice: Malcolm Brogdon has supplanted Snell in the starting five and he isn't doing anything to play himself out of the role. As such, Snell's minutes continue to shrink. In fact, his 17 minutes on Wednesday represent a new season low. Still, the situation isn't engraved in stone and the bottom could fall out on Brogdon at any time. Snell isn't a bad guy to scoop up and stash if you have the roster flexibility, as he might be just a bad Brogdon game or two away from returning to the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:15 pm
  • Lance Stephenson notches 15/8/4 off bench
    Lance Stephenson knocked down 6-of-11 shots to finish Wednesday's home loss with 15 points, eight rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

    Advice: This was the first time in six games that Lance has made at least half of his shots. The counting stats are good enough to own him in deeper points leagues, but he continues to hurt owners in percentages (43.3% FGs, 67.2% FTs) and turnovers (1.7) without contributing enough 3-pointers or defensive stats to compensate. He's a liability in category-based leagues, at least while Victor Oladipo is healthy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:03 pm
  • Jarrett Jack posts a triple-double in loss
    Jarrett Jack posted the second triple-double of his career during a 122-119 double-overtime loss to the Bulls on Wednesday, scoring 16 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and five turnovers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: It's the first triple-double for the Knicks since Carmelo Anthony posted one in 2012. Jack was part of the biggest play of the game as he set up Kristaps Porzingis off a cut to get a dunk at the buzzer to send this game to overtime (video in link below). Jack's minutes continue to trend up and perhaps he heard the whispers of coach Jeff Hornacek looking at starting Frank Ntilikina. Jack isn't exactly the sexiest fantasy asset in fantasy leagues, but he's a fine player to own until further notice. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:49 pm
