  • Moses Brown grabs 16 boards, Clips get demolished
    Moses Brown accounted for 13 points and 16 rebounds over 26 minutes in Sunday’s loss to Cleveland.

    Advice: Just a friendly disclaimer: garbage time stats count just the same for fantasy hoops. The shorthanded Clippers had their doors blown in, and Brown was thrust into a larger role than usual. His 16 rebounds are a new season high and represent his most in a single game since May 16, 2021 when he pulled down 18 against the Clippers as a member of the Thunder. Brown didn’t provide any defensive stats in this one, but if you streamed him as a Sunday night hail mary, you were handsomely rewarded with efficient shooting (5-of-7 FG, 3-of-3 FT), elite rebounding and a smattering of points. He’s been great when given an extended run this season, but those instances are few and far between, so he’s not worth rostering. NBCSportsEDGE.com 43 minutes ago
  • Tales of the Cedi: Osman lights up LAC w/ 7 threes
    Cedi Osman was lights out Sunday, hitting 11-of-13 shots and 7-of-7 triples for a game-high 29 points to go with two rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block across 22 minutes.

    Advice: Osman averaged just 5.0 points and 13.3 minutes across his last 10 games before erupting against Los Angeles. He comfortably led the Cavs in scoring and delivered a season-high point total in the process. Donovan Mitchell logged only 20 minutes in his return, and no Cavs’ starter played more than 27 as Cleveland handily dispatched a Clippers team missing multiple starters. The 29 points match his career-high in the scoring department, and the seven triples are a new personal best for the Turkish forward. Osman's monumental output is a fun storyline but a clear outlier, and there's no reason to add him off the waiver wire. NBCSportsEDGE.com 45 minutes ago
  • Alvarado, JV, Herb, Naji, Trey starting Sunday
    The Pelicans will start Jose Alvarado, Jonas Valanciunas, Herb Jones, Naji Marshall and Trey Murphy on Sunday against the Bucks.

    Advice: With all of C.J. McCollum, Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and Dyson Daniels sidelined, New Orleans will promote Alvo and Marshall to the starting five to join the usual suspects. Both are worth streaming to close out the fantasy week. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 7:46 pm
  • MarJon Beauchamp (knee) available Sunday vs. Pels
    MarJon Beauchamp (right patellar tendinitis) is available for Sunday's game against the Pelicans. 

    Advice: While Beauchamp will log rotation minutes due to the absence of Bobby Portis (knee), he is not worth rostering in fantasy leagues. Leave him on the waiver wire.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 6:37 pm
  • Taurean Prince (ankle) questionable Monday vs. SAC
    Taurean Prince (sprained left ankle) is questionable for Monday's game against the Kings. 

    Advice: Prince has missed Minnesota's last four games with his sprained ankle, and there isn't a concrete option for streaming. Austin Rivers and Jaylen Nowell have been Minnesota's most important reserves, but neither has been good enough to be a consistent streamer.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 6:17 pm
     
  • Top scorer among starters in loss
    Nesmith amassed 16 points (4-8 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five rebounds and one steal in 32 minutes during Sunday's 112-100 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Nesmith led all Pacers starters in scoring and rebounds in Sunday's loss, finishing as one of five Indiana players to score 10 or more points. Nesmith has tallied at least 15 points and five rebounds on five occasions this season. Rotowire.com Today, 6:14 pm
  • Leads bench with double-digit game
    Roddy amassed 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds in 16 minutes during Sunday's 112-100 win over the Pacers.

    Advice: Roddy led all Grizzlies bench players in scoring Sunday, finishing as one of five Memphis players to score 10 or more points. Roddy has surpassed the double-digit scoring mark 11 times this season, including twice in his last five games. Rotowire.com Today, 6:13 pm
  • Season high in rebounds off bench
    Tillman provided nine points (4-7 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds and two assists in 25 minutes during Sunday's 112-100 victory over the Pacers.

    Advice: Tillman posted a team-high rebounding total while finishing one point short of a double-double outing Sunday. Tillman set a season-high mark in rebounds, having hauled in five or more boards in four straight games. Rotowire.com Today, 6:12 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (right hip) out Monday vs. Thunder
    Andre Iguodala (right hip soreness) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Thunder. 

    Advice: Iguodala will remain sidelined, and he's without a timeline for concern. His absence won't impact fantasy basketball; consider him to be out indefinitely.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 5:40 pm
