  • Russell Westbrook drops 39-13-11 line in loss
    Russell Westbrook notched his 36th triple-double of the season during Sunday's loss to the Rockets, racking up 39 points, 13 assists, 11 rebounds, three 3-pointers and five turnovers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: As per usual, Westbrook was extremely aggressive at getting to the line, going 10-of-16 from the charity stripe while connecting on 13 of his 24 shot attempts for a 62.8 true shooting percentage. Westbrook now needs just six more triple-doubles to surpass Oscar Robertson's single-season record, a feat that seems highly attainable with 10 more games on the schedule for OKC. Today, 4:29 pm
  • DeAndre Jordan posts 20 & 11 in loss to Kings
    DeAndre Jordan notched 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting on Sunday, adding 11 rebounds, one steal, one block and zero turnovers.

    Advice: Jordan is shooting better than 75 percent in March, pushing his season average to a league-leading 70.6 percent. He's shot 70+ percent twice before in his career, and he joins Wilt Chamberlain as the only qualifying players to do that in a full season. He's winning three categories for his owners on a weekly basis. Today, 4:15 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver scores 15 points w/ five 3s
    Anthony Tolliver returned from a rest day to finish Sunday's thrilling comeback victory with 15 points 5-of-6 shooting, with all of his attempts coming from downtown.

    Advice: Tolliver added three rebounds and one block in 23 minutes of action tonight. He's going to get occasional DNP-CDs down the stretch, even if the Kings don't eventually shut him down, which makes him undesirable even as a 3-point specialist. Today, 3:59 pm
  • Marc Gasol (foot) out Sunday, Z-Bo starting
    Marc Gasol (left foot strain) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Warriors, and Zach Randolph will start in his place.

    Advice: Brandan Wright should also see minutes, and Memphis even recalled Deyonta Davis from the D-League for emergency depth tonight. Gasol should be considered day-to-day, with his next chance to play coming in Sacramento on Monday. Today, 3:36 pm
  • Eric Gordon scores 24 points with four treys
    Eric Gordon scored 24 points on 7-of-13 shooting Sunday, to go with four 3-pointers, two boards, one assist and two turnovers through 36 minutes as a starter.

    Advice: Ryan Anderson (ankle) is set to spend the next two weeks on the sidelines, so Gordon will be starting moving forward, and his minutes and scoring opportunities figure to rise with Ryno on the shelf. He also was a perfect 6-of-6 from the charity stripe in this one, giving EG a sterling true shooting percentage of 76.7. Additionally, Gordon has suited up for a total of 67 games this season, which is the most games he's played in a single season since his rookie year. Today, 3:36 pm
  • Nic Batum drops a double-double
    Nicolas Batum scored 18 points with six rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Suns on Sunday.

    Advice: He was just 6-of-15 from the field and the missed shots continue to be a problem these days. In his previous games since the break, Batum made just 28.1 percent from deep on 3.4 attempts, which has pulled him down to a woeful 38.5 percent from the field. He's still doing plenty in the other departments and did record his team-high 15th double-double this season. Batum should hold his mid-round value the rest of the way. Today, 1:24 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky scores 10
    Frank Kaminsky made 3-of-11 from the field for 10 points with seven rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Suns on Sunday.

    Advice: He's kind of back in a slump again. After an impressive 20-point game last week, Kaminsky averaged just 11.2 points, 5.4 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.8 blocks and 2.2 treys on just 31.0 percent from the field in his last five. Because of how his fantasy game is so dependent on him making shots, he can be annoying to own at times like these. He has the upside and role to have value, though. Today, 1:18 pm
  • Jared Dudley puts up another good game
    Jared Dudley scored 12 points with two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers against the Hornets on Sunday.

    Advice: He's playing arguably his best ball since November and the Suns not having depth is a big reason why. The Suns do want Dragan Bender (ankle) to return at some point this year and the rookie is doing some on-court work, so that casts some doubt on Dudley the rest of the way. Today, 12:44 pm
  • Devin Booker scores 23 points vs. Hornets
    Devin Booker scored 23 points with four rebounds, five assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Hornets on Sunday.

    Advice: Not exactly a 70-point explosion here. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist did a really nice job on Booker and there's no doubt teams will be starting their scouting reports with Booker as a scorer going forward. He did also have some nice passes in this game, which would be a key piece for him to be a fantasy stud. Booker should be one of the top scorers in the final few weeks of the season and getting to the line more is also a key development. Today, 12:27 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver back in action on Sunday
    Anthony Tolliver will return vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

    Advice: Tolliver was rested on Friday, along with Darren Collison, but both of those guys are active for today's game. Meanwhile, both Kosta Koufos and Arron Afflalo are getting the night off. This is going to be standard operating procedure the rest of the way for Sacramento's veterans. Today, 12:23 pm
  • Michael Beasley (knee) may practice next week
    Michael Beasley (left knee) could resume practicing next week, according to coach Jason Kidd.

    Advice: Beasley has "made progress" while the Bucks were away on an extended road trip, and the "plan" is to have him playing before the end of the regular season. That would be great news for the Bucks' depth, but it's unlikely to impact many fantasy rosters. Today, 11:42 am
  • Eric Gordon will start vs. the Thunder
    Eric Gordon will start vs. the Thunder on Sunday.

    Advice: Ryan Anderson (ankle) is likely going to miss around two weeks according to coach Mike D'Antoni, so Gordon, Lou Williams and Sam Dekker are all looking at a bump in minutes. Gordon is averaging 12.8 points, 2.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 2.4 treys on 43.1 percent shooting over his last five games, and with four games on the schedule next week, his owners should be in great shape in terms of 3-pointers. Today, 10:55 am
  • Ryan Anderson to miss at least 5 games?
    Ryan Anderson (ankle) is expected to miss at least the next five games for the Rockets.

    Advice: He will not play on Sunday vs. the Thunder or Tuesday vs. the Warriors, and he's not expected to travel on their three-game road trip after those two games. The Rockets were "relieved" by the test results on Anderson's ankle, and they believe he will return before the end of the regular season. Based on this timetable, the earliest we would see him back is on Apr. 5 vs. the Nuggets, but that seems like a stretch -- coach Mike D'Antoni hinted that he would miss closer to two weeks. In the meantime, Lou Williams, Eric Gordon and Sam Dekker will likely see a bump in minutes. Today, 10:48 am
  • Kosta Koufos will rest on Sunday
    Kosta Koufos will rest on Sunday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: This is the front end of a back-to-back set, meaning Koufos should be good for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies. He's going to be rested way too much to help fantasy owners going forward. Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis should get a nice bump with Koufos out, but Labissiere is the better fantasy option. Today, 9:29 am
  • Arron Afflalo and Kosta Koufos resting Sunday
    Arron Afflalo and Kosta Koufos will rest against the Clippers on Sunday.

    Advice: Of course they will. This is the front end of a back-to-back set, so both players should be active on Monday vs. the Grizzlies. Expect plenty of DNPs for the veterans in Sacramento going forward. Buddy Hield is the only wing worth owning on the Kings right now. Today, 9:27 am
  • Ryan Anderson (ankle) likely out Tuesday
    Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said Ryan Anderson will "probably" be out for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

    Advice: "I hate it for Ryan," D'Antoni said. "I hate that he's not here. But we have enough to cover it up." Anderson has already been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder and he currently doesn't have a timetable to return. With Anderson out, the Rockets will likely have to play more small ball with Trevor Ariza at the four, and D'Antoni mentioned that Lou Williams, Eric Gordon and Sam Dekker will likely see a bump in minutes. Today, 7:39 am
  • Scott Brooks praises Kelly Oubre
    Wizards coach Scott Brooks said Kelly Oubre has been a "superstar" in his role off the bench.

    Advice: "The game for Kelly, to me, is simple. Just compete," Brooks said. "Deflections. Getting into the passing lanes. Contesting at the rim. Switching on our pick-and-roll coverage because he can guard one through four depending on the matchup and then rebound. The game rewards him when he does that." The second-year wing had one of his best games of the season against LeBron James and the Cavs on Saturday, finishing with 16 points, seven rebounds, one steal and no turnovers in 26 minutes. However, unless we learn that Bojan Bogdanovic (back) will miss more time, most fantasy owners can leave him on the wire for now. Today, 6:36 am
  • KAT finally has a bad game
    Karl-Anthony Towns scored 16 points with five rebounds and one block in 31 minutes during a 112-100 loss to the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: It's been a long, long time since KAT had a dud like this one. In fact, the 21 combined points and boards are his lowest since Nov. 23 against the Pelicans. Over his previous games since the break, Towns averaged 28.1 points, 13.9 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.1 blocks and 1.4 treys. Even with the Wolves basically out of the playoffs, KAT is headed for a monster finish. Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Kelly Oubre scores 16 points in 26 minutes
    Kelly Oubre was superb off the bench against the Cavs on Saturday, making 7-of-8 from the field for 16 points with seven rebounds, one steal and no turnovers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: It was a fantastic showing for Oubre, who went up against LeBron James throughout this game. You could say this was his best game of the season with terrific play on offense, defense and especially in transition. If Bojan Bogdanovic (back) misses more time, maybe Oubre is worth a look in deep leagues. Most owners can leave him on the wire. Yesterday, 7:34 pm
  • Marc Gasol (foot) questionable for Sunday
    Marc Gasol (left foot strain) is questionable for Sunday against the Warriors.

    Advice: The good news is that this isn't the same foot that needed surgery last season. For what it's worth foot strain is typically not as worrisome as a sprain, but of course every injury is different. Gasol has played a whopping 37.6 minutes per game over his last five games and the Grizzlies may slightly dial him back even if he's OK. If he can't go, we'll see a lot more Brandan Wright with some added Zach Randolph and JaMychal Green. Yesterday, 6:12 pm
  • Ryan Anderson (ankle) ruled out for Sunday
    Ryan Anderson (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: This news is not surprisingly. Anderson appeared to badly sprained his ankle Friday night when he landed on the foot of DeMarcus Cousins. At this point, it is unknown if Anderson will miss additional game(s) after Sunday, but the Rockets won't place too much importance on a few relatively meaningless regular season contests with the playoffs less than three weeks away. Eric Gordon may be inserted into the starting lineup on Sunday, with Trevor Ariza sliding to power forward. Sam Dekker will also see an uptick in minutes. Yesterday, 10:43 am
  • Ryan Anderson (ankle) uncertain for Sunday
    Ryan Anderson (ankle) would not rule himself out of Sunday's game vs. OKC, but it appears he is unlikely to play.

    Advice: Anderson sprained his right ankle in the second half of Friday's win over New Orleans. The Rockets are essentially locked into the three seed; thus, it makes sense to assume their focus will be on getting their roster as healthy as possible for the postseason. If Anderson does not play on Sunday, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle believes that the Rockets will likely start Trevor Ariza as the power forward and move Eric Gordon into the starting lineup. Yesterday, 8:32 am
  • Kosta Koufos scores two points
    Kosta Koufos scored two points with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 14 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: He'll get more rest going forward and there is just no upside in fantasy right now. Even if you're in a 40-man league, go pick up someone else. The Kings may even shut him down to look more at their youth. Friday, 11:48 pm
  • Eric Gordon scored 14 points
    Eric Gordon scored 14 points with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

    Advice: He's finally out of his slump over his last five, averaging 12.8 points, 2.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 2.4 treys on 43.1 percent from the field in that span. With Ryan Anderson (ankle) likely to miss time, Gordon should be looking at some added scoring opportunities. He's still more of a specialist. Friday, 11:27 pm
  • Ryan Anderson with badly swollen ankle
    Ryan Anderson (right ankle) had a badly swollen ankle after Friday's game.

    Advice: He sprained his right ankle after stepping on Cousins' foot and went straight to the locker room in the second half. Anderson said it's too soon to know about how much time he'll miss, but it didn't sound positive about playing against OKC on Sunday. If he's out, the Rockets will be rolling with more multiple-guard lineups and Sam Dekker should see some extra minutes. If you want to drop Ryno, it makes sense. Friday, 8:16 pm
  • Devin Booker scores 70 points in Boston
    Devin Booker exploded for a franchise-record 70 points during a 130-120 loss to the Celtics on Friday, adding eight rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was 21-of-40 from the field and 24-of-26 from the line to drop the most points in a 2016-17 NBA game and the most points ever against the Celtics. Booker is the youngest player ever to score at least 60 and is just the sixth player ever to hit the 70-point mark in a game (Bryant, Chamberlain, Thompson, Baylor, Robinson). He went crazy in the second half with 51 points, playing all 24 minutes with a 56.3 usage rate and a 72.4 true shooting percentage. It was pretty clear coach Earl Watson was looking to get Booker going with plenty of fouls to help Booker score so many late points and he was asked about it after the game. "Do something about it," Watson said. Maybe, we'll see a few more monster Booker games the rest of this season. Friday, 8:02 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky goes scoreless on Friday
    Frank Kaminsky missed all nine of his shots on Friday vs. the Cavaliers and failed to score in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Five of his nine shot attempts were from beyond the arc, but at least he grabbed eight rebounds with a pair of assists. Frank the Tank was averaging 14.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.7 blocks, 0.5 steals and 2.0 triples in his previous six games, so his owners should give him another chance. The Hornets play four games next week after Sunday's contest vs. the Suns. Friday, 7:48 pm
  • Jared Dudley hands out 10 dimes
    Jared Dudley matched his career-high 10 dimes against the Celtics on Friday, adding six points, four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

    Advice: He shockingly had six assists in the final 14 minutes to help get Devin Booker going. The Suns need bodies out there, so Dudley should continue to play minutes in the 20s. He's still not going to be worth owning in most leagues. Plus, maybe Dragan Bender comes back. Friday, 7:46 pm
  • Kosta Koufos starting vs. the Warriors
    Kosta Koufos is starting vs. the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: Koufos was rested on Wednesday vs. the Bucks, but should see his normal workload tonight. We still like Skal Labissiere's outlook going forward and Koufos could get more DNPs down the stretch, so Koufos belongs on the wire in standard leagues. Friday, 7:16 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver will rest on Friday
    Anthony Tolliver will rest on Friday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: The Kings are calling it "planned rest," so expect Tolliver to be back in action on Sunday. With Tolliver out, Skal Labissiere should get a nice bump in minutes tonight. Friday, 5:45 pm
  • Marc Gasol gets quiet double-double in defeat
    The Grizzlies suffered their second straight loss on Thursday, as Marc Gasol finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Gasol made one 3-pointer and blocked a shot, so it wasn't a total loss, but he shot just 6-of-15 from the field with six turnovers. Mike Conley was better with 22 points (7-of-18 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), six assists, two rebounds, one 3-pointer and three turnovers, but the Grizzlies' twin pillars didn't have enough to earn a road win in San Antonio tonight. Thursday, 8:38 pm
  • DeAndre Jordan puts up a double-double
    DeAndre Jordan scored 14 points with 18 rebounds, one assist and two blocks against the Mavs on Thursday.

    Advice: He actually didn't go to the line in his previous two games combined, and was only 2-of-4 from there tonight. Jordan does have double-doubles in each of his last four games since he rested on Mar. 16, making 79.3 percent from the field. Thursday, 8:34 pm
  • Devin Booker pours in 28 in loss on Thursday
    Devin Booker scored a game-high 28 points in Phoenix's lopsided loss to the Nets on Thursday night.

    Advice: Booker has been battling through an ankle injury and had been struggling with his shot coming into Thursday, as he was a just 7-of-29 from the floor over his last two games. Booker was again inefficient, shooting just 9-for-26 from the field, including 3-of-9 from downtown. He did make 7-of-8 from the free-throw line. Booker also added three steals and two rebounds. The good news is that he played 40 minutes in a blowout, indicating his ankle wasn't giving him any trouble. Thursday, 7:47 pm
  • Arron Afflalo returns to action in loss
    Arron Afflalo scored 12 points with two rebounds and two 3-pointers against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Kings will continue to rest their veterans and chances are Afflalo won't play either Friday or Sunday. Afflalo can remain on the waiver wire in just about all leagues. Wednesday, 9:42 pm
  • Russell Westbrook drops triple-double No. 35
    Russell Westbrook turned in his 35th triple-double of the season during a 122-97 win over the 76ers on Wednesday, scoring 18 points with 11 rebounds, 14 assists, two blocks and five turnovers.

    Advice: Westbrook was 6-of-6 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line to make him the first player in NBA history to drop a triple-double on perfect shooting. Westbrook only had a 19.5 usage rate in this game, which is less than half his season average and is also a season low by a mile. In fact, this was only the second time this season he had a usage rate under 30 in a game. He gets a triple-double date with James Harden on Sunday afternoon. Wednesday, 9:21 pm
  • Arron Afflalo starting, Temple to Kings bench
    Arron Afflalo (personal) will start for the Kings on Wednesday, sending Garrett Temple to the bench.

    Advice: The Kings' rotations are perpetually in flux, and tonight it'll be Afflalo getting the nod vs. Milwaukee. He's done nothing this season to encourage owners to pick him up. Wednesday, 7:29 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky rolls along w/ 18 points Wed
    Frank Kaminsky had another productive evening on Wednesday, going 6-of-13 from the field with four 3-pointers for 18 points.

    Advice: Kaminsky added five boards, one assist and one block in 33 minutes, as Charlotte escaped Orlando with a comeback victory tonight. His perimeter shooting helped the Hornets erase an early deficit to take the lead in the fourth quarter, bolstering their odds of overtaking Miami, Detroit and Chicago for the No. 8 seed in the East. Frank the Tank is rolling right now. Wednesday, 6:43 pm
  • Nicolas Batum offers mixed back Wednesday
    Nicolas Batum finished Wednesday's game with 10 points, six assists, two rebounds and two steals, but he shot just 5-of-14 from the field with five turnovers.

    Advice: Batum may have tweaked his ankle during the game, but he didn't miss any time and we're leaving him off the injury report. The Hornets desperately need him to produce down the stretch, as they're still three games out of the No. 8 seed. They're trending up at the right moment, at least, having won three straight games after sweeping the season series vs. Orlando tonight. Wednesday, 6:42 pm
  • Russell Westbrook (hand) will start Wednesday
    Russell Westbrook (hand) will start Wednesday vs. the 76ers, as expected.

    Advice: Westbrook picked up a blister on his shooting hand during Monday's loss to Golden State, but he's obviously fine, and he should have a nice bounce-back performance with a matchup against Philly. Victor Oladipo, Andre Roberson, Taj Gibson and Steven Adams will join him in the starting five. Wednesday, 4:49 pm
  • Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Wednesday
    Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Bucks.

    Advice: It's a home game for the Kings, so they'll give their fans a look at the youth today. Georgios Papagiannis had a productive weekend on the road and should be looking at minutes in the 20s. He's a sneaky guy to use in fantasy, especially with how the Kings are giving him the ball. Koufos is not worth owning in most fantasy leagues anymore. Wednesday, 4:46 pm
  • Karl-Anthony Towns scores 25 points in loss
    Karl-Anthony Towns scored 25 points on 8-of-17 shooting (8-of-9 FTs) in a loss to the Spurs on Tuesday, adding 14 rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and one triple.

    Advice: The Wolves looked like they had this game won until a third-quarter meltdown. The loss means that the Wolves are now 5.0 games behind the No. 8 seed (Denver) in the West, but Towns is averaging the most minutes per game in the NBA since the break and his owners probably don't need to worry about him being shut down -- he's yet to miss a game during his NBA career. His value should be safe and he's a top-3 fantasy option every time he takes the floor. Tuesday, 10:01 pm
  • Marc Gasol held to 10 points
    Marc Gasol was held to 10 points on 5-of-13 shooting in a loss to the Pelicans on Tuesday.

    Advice: The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for Memphis. Gasol salvaged his line with eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block, but the bad news for his fantasy owners is that the Grizzlies only have two more games this week. The Grizzlies are fighting for playoff seeding, so Gasol hopefully won't be rested any time soon. Tuesday, 8:32 pm
  • Devin Booker struggles through ankle
    Devin Booker played through his ankle injury on Tuesday but hit just 4-of-16 shots and missed all four of his 3-pointers for 11 points, four boards, five assists, a steal and a season-high seven turnovers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Hey, at least he played, right? Booker missed Sunday's game and is really struggling with his shot right now, hitting just 13-of-55 of them over his last three games. He did have 28 points on 13-of-26 shooting a week ago Sunday, so hopefully his ankle is feeling better soon and he starts dropping his shots again. But he's not exactly helping his fantasy owners in playoff crunch time at the moment. Tuesday, 8:06 pm
  • Devin Booker (ankle) starting vs. the Heat
    Devin Booker (ankle) is starting vs. the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: He was a full participant during shootaround and was upgraded from questionable to probable early Tuesday morning. The Suns might be cautious with him going forward as they continue to tank, but his owners can deploy Booker tonight. Tuesday, 4:42 pm
  • Devin Booker, Barbosa likely to play Tuesday
    Devin Booker (ankle) and Leandro Barbosa (illness) are on track to play Tuesday vs. Miami.

    Advice: Booker was a full participant during shootaround and is listed as probable, so all signs are pointing towards him returning from a one-game absence on Tuesday night. With Booker back in the fold, Derrick Jones Jr. will return to the bench, and the usage rate of guys like T.J. Warren and Tyler Ulis will suffer a slight hit. With Barbosa back in action, Ulis will be less likely to see his playing time eclipse the 40-minute mark. Tuesday, 3:09 pm
  • Westbrook dealing with blister on his hand
    Billy Donovan said that Russell Westbrook picked up a blister on his right (shooting) hand during Monday's loss to the Warriors, but he's fine.

    Advice: Westbrook took it easy during Tuesday's light, non-contact practice, but he should be just fine for Wednesday's matchup with the 76ers. Owners can expect to get official confirmation on Westbrook's status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Tuesday, 11:25 am
  • Devin Booker (ankle) probable for Tuesday
    Devin Booker (ankle) participated in morning walk-through and is probable for Tuesday night's game vs. Miami.

    Advice: We were first made aware of the fact that Booker was battling ankle issues late last week, and he was sidelined for Sunday's game vs. the Pistons. If Booker does return on Tuesday, Derrick Jones Jr. would likely get bumped back to the bench. We should have an update from the team later this afternoon confirming Booker's status, and if the Suns plan to keep him on any type of minutes restrictions going forward. Tuesday, 8:23 am
  • DeAndre Jordan double-doubles vs. Knicks
    DeAndre Jordan double-doubled vs. the Knicks on Monday with 14 points and 10 rebounds.

    Advice: He finished 7-of-9 from the field and didn't attempt any free throws, adding three blocks in 28 minutes. Jordan was rested for one game in the last back-to-back set, but since he didn't play in the fourth quarter tonight, hopefully that means he will be available in a cupcake matchup with the Lakers on Tuesday. Monday, 10:10 pm
  • Eric Gordon hits four triples off bench
    Eric Gordon scored 18 points with four 3-pointers in Monday's 125-124 win against the Nuggets.

    Advice: Gordon has been able to coexist with Lou Williams since the Rockets acquired the latter from the Lakers. However, Gordon is averaging just 12.8 points per game in March, his worst month of the season in terms of points. He remains a useful option in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams, although his shot attempts are down since Williams arrived on the scene. Monday, 9:45 pm
  • Russell Westbrook held to 15 points in loss
    Russell Westbrook was held to 15 points on 4-of-16 shooting vs. the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: Incredibly, his 15 points were his 2nd-fewest in a game this season since he scored 14 vs. the Heat back in November. Westbrook added eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one triple, but only played 27 minutes in the lopsided loss. Westbrook needs seven triple-doubles in his last 12 games to match Oscar Robertson's single-season record of 41 triple-doubles, so Westy's owners probably don't have to worry about him taking time off. Monday, 9:15 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky scores 14 points
    Frank Kaminsky scored 14 points in 36 minutes vs. the Hawks on Monday.

    Advice: Cody Zeller picked up five fouls, so that explains the spike in minutes for Frank the Tank. He finished 5-of-11 from the field with five assists, three rebounds, one steal, two blocks and three triples, and with a playoff berth looking unlikely, he should be heavily involved going forward. He will likely be more of a late-round player while Cody Zeller and Marvin Williams are active, though. Monday, 7:13 pm
  • Nicolas Batum scores 16 points
    Nicolas Batum scored 16 points on 5-of-8 shooting vs. the Hawks on Monday.

    Advice: This was his second game back after a two-game absence due to a migraine headache, but he looked much sharper this time around. Batum logged 31 minutes and dished out six assists with one rebound, one steal and one triple, and his workload should be safe as long as a playoff spot is within reach -- they are currently 3.0 games behind the Pistons (No. 8) and Heat (No. 9). Monday, 7:06 pm
  • Booker, Barbosa, Price questionable Tuesday
    Devin Booker (ankle), Leandro Barbosa (illness) and Ronnie Price (leg) are being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game in Miami.

    Advice: With all these guys on the sidelines on Sunday, we saw Derrick Jones Jr. move into the starting five, and it was T.J. Warren and Tyler Ulis being forced into heavy minutes while operating as Phoenix's top two targets on offense. If Booker, Barbosa and Price are all again forced to the sidelines on Tuesday night, it'll be more of the same, and owners can expect to get another update following shootaround. Stay tuned. Mar 20, 1:32 pm
  • Karl-Anthony Towns makes career-high four 3s
    Karl-Anthony Towns tied his career-high with four 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing with 33 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal in a loss at New Orleans.

    Advice: KAT predictably rose to the challenge vs. the Pelicans' mega frontcourt of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, but his efforts weren't enough to avoid the Wolves' third straight loss. They scored easily enough, getting 109 points on 51.8 percent shooting, but they gave up 123 points and were outscored in transition 33-13. They head home to face the Spurs on Tuesday. Mar 19, 5:44 pm
  • Arron Afflalo (personal) out Sunday vs. Spurs
    Arron Afflalo (personal) has been ruled out for Sunday's game.

    Advice: No reason has been given for Afflalo's absence, so it's unclear when he might rejoin the team. The Kings are tanking, with their young guys getting more and more minutes, so there's no reason to think the 31-year-old Afflalo will play a big role down the stretch. Mar 19, 2:29 pm
  • Devin Booker (ankle) will not play on Sunday
    Devin Booker (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Pistons.

    Advice: He said on Friday that his ankle was bothering him and the Suns will be holding him out for his first game since October. Considering the Suns are looking for lottery balls, it's possible they hold Booker out for additional time. The Suns will also have to play some new guys at shooting guard, including newly-signed Jarell Eddie. We will likely see some Derrick Jones Jr. and Jared Dudley out of position in this game, as well. T.J. Warren is going to be very busy. Mar 19, 12:07 pm
  • Devin Booker (ankle) questionable for Sunday
    Devin Booker (ankle) is questionable for Sunday against the Pistons.

    Advice: This has been a story for the weekend with Booker saying he's been dealing with nagging injuries lately. He said he needed some treatment and even said "we'll see" when he was asked about missing time. We should have an update before tip later. If he's out, the Suns will be in desperation mode with probably more Derrick Jones Jr. and Jared Dudley playing out of position. T.J. Warren and Tyler Ulis would also benefit while we may even see some Jarell Eddie. Mar 19, 10:54 am
  • Ryan Anderson scores 10 points with 4 boards
    Ryan Anderson scored 10 points with four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday.

    Advice: He did have to go to the locker room for a cut on his face with about a minute left in the first half -- Anderson did start the second half. Somewhat surprisingly, Anderson's usage rate is actually up after the break, but his efficiency and minutes are both down quite a bit. He actually hasn't really been worth owning in standard leagues and is only a specialist. Mar 18, 10:19 pm
  • DeAndre Jordan dominates Cavaliers
    DeAndre Jordan returned from a rest day in Saturday's win over the Cavaliers and double-doubled with 13 points and 17 rebounds.

    Advice: He only played 27 minutes in the blowout win, shooting 4-of-5 from the field and 5-of-11 from the line with two assists and a steal. The Clippers do have five games next week, but that includes two back-to-back sets and it's not a lock that Jordan won't get another maintenance day. Mar 18, 8:27 pm
  • Nic Batum scores eight points in return
    Nicolas Batum scored eight points with 10 rebounds, five assists and three turnovers in 27 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

    Advice: He and Kemba Walker were very quiet to start this game and Batum did show some rust tonight. Batum missed the last two games due to a migraine issue, which was his first noteworthy bout with that ailment during an NBA season. His fantasy owners can go back to plugging him in as a must-start player. Mar 18, 7:32 pm
  • Frank scores 14 points vs. Wizards
    Frank Kaminsky scored 14 points with four rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

    Advice: Even with Cody Zeller playing one of his best games of the season, coach Steve Clifford still went with Kaminsky for some important minutes at the five late. He looks like he'll continue to see about 15 minutes at both the four and five, which should put him at around 30 minutes in a very tight frontcourt rotation. He likely only has late-round upside, but Kaminsky should make an impact to finish the season. Mar 18, 7:19 pm
  • Russell Westbrook scores 28 with no trip-dub
    Russell Westbrook scored 28 points during a 110-94 win over the Kings on Saturday, adding eight rebounds, 10 assists, four steals, seven turnovers and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

    Advice: No triple-double this time to snap his four-game streak. While he didn't get the triple-double, he still has an excellent chance to average one for the season because he only needs 7.3 boards and 8.2 dimes in his final 13 games to hold the double-digit averages. Additionally, he has multiple-treys in four straight and his jumper is working again. Monday should be fun against the Warriors. Mar 18, 3:31 pm
  • Kosta Koufos scores nine points
    Kosta Koufos scored nine points with six rebounds, two assists and one block in 23 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: He is playing through a right hand injury and does have two fingers taped. According to the Kings broadcast, Koufos said he is going to have to play through it for a month or so. Perhaps this will be a reason to hold Koufos out of games as the season winds down. With Georgios Papagiannis turning in his best game as a pro, we'll likely be seeing Koufos' playing time start to fade. Mar 18, 2:40 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver plays off the bench
    Anthony Tolliver scored 10 points with two rebounds and two 3-pointers against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: The Kings used him at the three at times in this game. Tolliver is likely going to be resting in several games to finish out the season, especially with both Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis playing better lately. Leave Tolliver on the wire. Mar 18, 2:30 pm
  • Arron Afflalo (personal) won't play Saturday
    Arron Afflalo (personal) is not with the team and will not play Saturday vs. OKC.

    Advice: The Kings are in full tank mode and continue to shuffle their lineup haphazardly on almost a nightly basis. Afflalo has been putting up decent numbers, averaging 11.6 points and 2.9 rebounds over his last seven games, but it's hard to rely on him due to the frequent nights off. He should be left on waivers in most leagues. Mar 18, 9:45 am
  • Nicolas Batum (migraine) will play Saturday
    Coach Steve Clifford said that Nicolas Batum (migraine) will play Saturday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: Batum had missed two games dealing with painful migraines. However, he had a CT scan of his brain on Wednesday which came back negative and apparently Batum will be able to suit up Saturday night. This is unexpectedly good news for Batum owners, as it was unknown when Batum would be cleared to return. At this point, there has not been an indication of whether or not Batum will have any minutes restriction on Saturday. Jeremy Lamb will get bumped back to the bench. Mar 18, 8:09 am
  • Karl-Anthony Towns scores 31 points in loss
    Karl-Anthony Towns scored 31 points on 11-of-17 shooting vs. the Heat on Friday.

    Advice: He didn't record a block or a steal for the second straight game, but hit all eight of his free throws with 11 rebounds, one assist and one triple in 38 minutes. The Wolves are now 4.5 games behind the Nuggets for the No. 8 seed out West, but KAT has yet to miss a game in his NBA career and there's very little risk of a possible shut-down. Mar 17, 7:55 pm
  • DeAndre Jordan will play on Saturday
    DeAndre Jordan is not on the injury report for Saturday against the Cavs.

    Advice: The Clippers gave Marreese Speights his second start of the season in a loss at Denver on Thursday. Jordan's efficiency has also risen since Chris Paul returned, making 74.2 percent from the field this month. He'll be a double-double threat in a game likely to have a lot of 3-point attempts. Mar 17, 1:41 pm
  • Oubre wants to find a way back into rotation
    Kelly Oubre is hoping to earn more playing time and a consistent role in the Wizards rotation.

    Advice: Oubre has seen his minutes reduced dramatically since the trade that brought in Bojan Bogdanovic. Oubre averaged 20.9 minutes per game over the first 50 contests of the season. However, he is averaging just 8.0 minutes over the Wizards last six games and then drew a DNP-CD on Wednesday. Oubre is still confident in himself, but fantasy owners should have already moved on. He should remain on waivers. Mar 17, 9:46 am
  • Marc Gasol triple-doubles in win over Hawks
    Marc Gasol hit 7-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 18 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, giving him his third triple-double of his career.

    Advice: He's the Grizzlies franchise leader in trip-dubs and he's on fire right now, averaging 17.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five. He's doing it all right now and is a big reason the No 7 Grizzlies have bounced back to win three straight games as they chase the No. 6 Thunder and No. 5 Clippers in the Western playoff hunt. Mar 16, 7:35 pm
  • Russell Westbrook drops triple-double No. 34
    Russell Westbrook posted his 34th triple-double of the season during a 123-102 win in Toronto on Thursday, scoring 24 points with 10 rebounds, 16 assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in just 28 minutes.

    Advice: That's four consecutive triple-doubles, eight in his last 12, and it's also his third streak of four straight trip-dubs this season. He is now seven away from Oscar Robertson's record of 41 triple-doubles in a season, which seems to be well within his grasp given his high volume in that department lately. Additionally, Westbrook playing in every game is very impressive given all his usage this season. He gets the Kings at home on Saturday. Mar 16, 7:25 pm
  • Arron Afflalo returns to the lineup
    Arron Afflalo scored 14 points with four rebounds in 30 minutes as a starter against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: While he did play well, Afflalo is likely going to get rested at some point again. Afflalo can stay on the wire in just about all leagues. Mar 15, 11:50 pm
  • Kosta Koufos looks good in his return
    Kosta Koufos scored 13 points with six rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 20 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: Koufos was back in the starting lineup after getting rest on Monday. He looked to be on his way to a really strong game, but Skal Labissiere went scorched-earth mode in the fourth and Koufos never checked back in. Koufos did rest on Monday and there's a very good chance he's not going to play on Friday. He can't be owned in fantasy with so much uncertainty about his status going forward. Mar 15, 11:43 pm
  • DeAndre Jordan won't play Thursday in DEN
    DeAndre Jordan will not travel with the Clippers for Thursday's road game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Jordan played 37 minutes during Wednesday's rough home loss, which he finished with 22 points (9-of-12 FGs, 4-of-5 FTs), 17 rebounds, two assists and two blocks. The Clippers have also decided to keep Blake Griffin in L.A. during their one-game trip, and both guys should be rested and ready to face the Cavaliers on Saturday. Moe Speights, Brandon Bass and possibly Diamond Stone (ankle) will all be called upon to fill the frontcourt void in Denver. Mar 15, 10:31 pm
  • Ryan Anderson goes scoreless
    Ryan Anderson did not score on Wednesday with two rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes against the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He did take a shot to the mouth in the second quarter and went to the locker room. Anderson did return to start the second half, but he didn't play in garbage time to keep his minutes down. He's really just a specialist at this point. Mar 15, 10:22 pm
  • Eric Gordon scores 10 points
    Eric Gordon scored 10 points with three rebounds, four assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Despite coach Mike D'Antoni saying Lou Williams coming to town will help Gordon, that hasn't been the case at all. Gordon is really just a specialist for 3-pointers right now and hasn't been a top-100 player since the break. Mar 15, 10:18 pm
  • Marc Gasol scores 27 points
    Marc Gasol scored 27 points during a 98-91 win over the Bulls on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, seven assists and one block in 37 minutes.

    Advice: It was the Gasol and Mike Conley show with those two scoring 16 of the final 18 points to seal this road win. The Grizzlies are now going with arguably their most talented starting five with those two, JaMychal Green, Tony Allen and Vince Carter, which has helped them turn around their post-break woes. As for Gasol, he's been slightly down as a sixth-round player since the break, but he should improve on that. Plus, the Grizzlies are going to try for home court in the first round. Mar 15, 9:08 pm
