  • Tyler Ennis scores season-high 14 points
    Tyler Ennis took advantage of expanded minutes on Sunday to post a season-high 14 points (6-of-15 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs) with five assists, four steals and three rebounds in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Ennis was a big winner in the rotation tonight as the only true guard in the second unit. He hit season-highs in nearly every category and benefited from L.A.'s unusual rotations in a blowout loss without Brandon Ingram (knee). We'll need to see a few more solid performances before approaching him as a fantasy pickup. Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson OK after hand injury Sunday
    X-rays were negative on Jordan Clarkson's bruised fifth metacarpal on Sunday, and he returned to finish with 10 points, seven rebounds and six assists, going 4-of-16 from the field with one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Clarkson dropped a career-high 35 points on Friday and he seems to have avoided any serious injury tonight, although he was ice-cold after returning. "He has the ability to be so dynamic," Luke Walton said before the game. "He’s been one of our more consistent players." His long-term outlook is terrific, and barring a setback owners can also expect him to be ready for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards. Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Blazers win easily, tie Denver for No. 8 seed
    The Blazers earned their 12th consecutive win vs. the Lakers on Sunday, led by Damian Lillard's 22 points, four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, five assists and three steals.

    Advice: Lillard made 7-of-20 FGs and 4-of-7 FTs tonight, but he committed only one turnover in 30 minutes of action. The playing time barely topped C.J. McCollum (13 points, three assists, four turnovers) for a high among Portland's starters, as the lopsided score allowed coach Terry Stotts to lean heavily on his reserves. The Blazers are now in a virtual tie with Denver for the No. 8 seed, and owners can expect Lillard's best during Tuesday's crucial home game vs. the Nuggets -- Lillard said his team has to approach the game "locked-in like never before." Yesterday, 9:32 pm
  • Allen Crabbe scores 18 points w/ full line
    Allen Crabbe got hot in 29 minutes off the bench on Sunday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting with four 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and zero turnovers.

    Advice: Crabbe tied his career-high with at least one 3-pointer in 15 consecutive games, and the return of Evan Turner (two points in 20 minutes) has done nothing to slow him down. Crabbe has six blocks in his past four games, which is fluky, and he's still just a borderline option in most leagues. That said, he's better in 9-cat thanks to his stingy 0.7 turnovers over the past dozen games. Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • C.J. McCollum quiet in easy win vs. Lakers
    C.J. McCollum shot just 5-of-13 from the field on Sunday, finishing with 13 points, one 3-pointer, three assists, one rebound, one steal and four turnovers in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Portland has won three straight games and they're tied with Denver for the No. 8 seed. McCollum's struggles tonight didn't really matter because Portland had this game in hand early, and he could have played more minutes if it weren't a blowout. Expect a more robust line in a critical home game vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday. Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Stephen Curry gets 21 & 11 w/ four steals Sun
    Stephen Curry stole the ball four times on Sunday to go along with 21 points, 11 assists, five 3-pointers and one rebound in 36 minutes.

    Advice: The Grizzlies' defense keyed in against Curry tonight, and he did commit five turnovers, but he found ways to earn his team another victory -- they've won seven straight. In other positive news, Steve Kerr said prior to the game that he doesn't intend to rest any of his main starters players during back-to-back games on Tuesday (at Houston) and Wednesday (at San Antonio). Yesterday, 8:01 pm
  • Jordan Crawford scores 13 off bench
    Jordan Crawford posted 13 points with seven assists, five rebounds and a steal in 24 minutes off the bench in Sunday's game at Denver.

    Advice: Crawford has been outstanding for the second unit in New Orleans, posting 10 or more points in nine of his 10 outings with the team. He is averaging 14.3 points and 2.5 rebounds over his past four games to give fantasy owners in deeper leagues some solid production. He is also a cheap source of points for those playing DFS down the stretch. Yesterday, 7:40 pm
  • Jrue Holiday finishes with 13-7-6 on Sunday
    Jrue Holiday scored 13 points in Sunday's game in Denver while adding seven assists, six rebounds and a steal over 27 minutes.

    Advice: Holiday dropped in three triples, too, while posting a goose egg in the turnover category. He has rebounded from a rough patch at the beginning of the month, posting 10 or more points in eight straight games while contributing six or more assists in each of his past six outings. Yesterday, 7:33 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas scores 30 in Sunday's win
    Isaiah Thomas finished with 30 points, three assists, two rebounds and two 3-pointers over 35 minutes in Sunday's 112-108 win against the Heat.

    Advice: Thomas pulled even with Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook for the NBA lead with 20 or more points in 65 games this season. The big win helped the Celtics pull even with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the top spot in the Eastern Conference. Perhaps the solid play of Thomas and the Celtics will help fantasy owners of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and company, as the Cavs won't rest their starters as much down the stretch. Yesterday, 6:20 pm
  • Tyler Johnson good for 24 points
    Tyler Johnson ended up with 24 points, four rebounds, three steals, two assists and just two turnovers in 31 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss in Boston.

    Advice: Johnson was a very efficient 9-of-15 from the floor and a perfect 6-of-6 from the free throw line. He is averaging 17.8 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.0 steals per game over the past five outings. He started out a bit slow, but he has picked up the pace with Dion Waiters (ankle) on the mend. Yesterday, 6:00 pm
  • Darren Collison hits 8-of-11 FGs, scores 19
    Darren Collison started Sunday's game and had 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting with four assists, one board and one steal in 28 minutes.

    Advice: DC was rested on Friday and the random DNPs make it hard to trust him in critical situations for fantasy purposes. He got a boost tonight with Ty Lawson (stiff knee) ruled out at the last minute, but it doesn't sound like Lawson will miss too much time with the injury. It's worth noting that DC was also riding the bench while Langston Galloway (six points, three assists in 25 minutes) played PG during the Kings' huge run to steal this win in L.A. Yesterday, 4:01 pm
  • Tyreke Evans logs 21 minutes as starting SF
    Tyreke Evans returned as a starter on Sunday with eight points, four rebounds, two 3-pointers and one assist in 21 minutes vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Evans was coming off a day of planned rest, but he recently said that he's "getting into a rhythm right now." He's worked to develop an outside shot, in order to reduce the wear-and-tear of constantly driving to the rim, but Sacramento is still going to limit him to under 30 minutes per game down the stretch. Throw in the random DNPs, and he's simply not an appealing fantasy asset. Yesterday, 4:00 pm
  • Patrick Beverley goes scoreless in 28 minutes
    Patrick Beverley missed all six of his shot attempts during Sunday's win over the Thunder, contributing just two boards, one steal, five dimes and five turnovers through 28 scoreless minutes.

    Advice: Beverley is prone to the occasional scoring dud, particularly when his primary responsibility is to chase around a guy like Russell Westbrook, and unfortunately, it could be tough for him to immediately bounce back with another tough matchup against the Warriors on Tuesday. Still, he's been a steady top-50 play on the year with his steady contribution of treys (1.7), dimes (4.2) and steals (1.5), so he's worth hanging onto in most leagues. Yesterday, 3:29 pm
  • James Harden double-doubles, tweaks wrist
    James Harden put up a 22-point, 12-assist double-double during Sunday's win over OKC, but exited the game with 30 seconds left in the fourth after a hard fall on his left wrist, and did not return.

    Advice: Harden added five boards, two triples and five turnovers through his 36 minutes of floor time, but this wrist issue is definitely a concern. Harden's left (shooting) wrist was heavily wrapped up in ice after the game, and he acknowledged during his post-game interview that he initially suffered the injury during Monday's win over Denver. Head coach Mike D'Antoni said it's something Harden will likely be dealing with the rest of the season, and admitted that he'll rest the MVP-candidate if need be. For now, we'll consider him questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Golden State, and if he's out, Lou Williams would likely emerge as the primary beneficiary. Stay tuned. Yesterday, 3:21 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 22 pts in defeat
    Giannis Antetokounmpo posted 22 points (8-of-14 FGs, 6-of-10 FTs) with eight rebounds, four assists and three turnovers during Sunday's home loss to the Bulls.

    Advice: Antetokounmpo was solid offensively but he lost Nikola Mirotic on multiple defensive possessions, which is part of the reason Mirotic blew up for a game-high 28 points. It was only the Bucks' third loss in their past 14 games, but they can't be complacent with three games separating them from the No. 10 seed Pistons. Yesterday, 3:18 pm
  • Jeremy Lin scores 19 with eight dimes
    Jeremy Lin scored 18 points with four rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: The Nets are actually a respectable basketball team when Lin plays, posting a 9-19 record when he suits up. Yes, that's not great, but a 32.1 win percentage puts them a lot closer to the Knicks than how the Nets have played without Lin. He's also turned it up over his last three since returning from injury, averaging 15.3 points, 2.7 boards, 5.3 assists, .07 steals, 0.7 blocks and 1.0 treys. There is always risk on playing him for weekly leagues, but he makes sense to start in most cases right now. Yesterday, 2:14 pm
  • Isaiah Whitehead plays well in his 26 minutes
    Isaiah Whitehead scored nine points with two rebounds, three assists, one block and three steals in 26 minutes against the Hawks on Sunday.

    Advice: After Kris Dunn passed him for the rookie guard lead in blocks on Friday, Whitehead passed him right back. Whitehead has been a pleasant surprise in the second half and has seen his mistakes drop on both ends. He's starting to sniff value in deeper leagues over his last five, averaging 9.4 points, 2.8 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.6 blocks. We'll see how much more the Nets play him down the stretch, so just keep an eye on him. Yesterday, 2:05 pm
  • Dennis Schroder scores 24 points
    Dennis Schroder scored 24 points with three rebounds, eight assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Nets during a 107-92 loss on Sunday.

    Advice: He took a couple hard hits in this game, including a cut on the mouth from Jeremy Lin's contact to Schroder's face. With this loss, the Hawks still haven't won a game without Paul Millsap and they continue to slide in the standings. As for Schroder, he does get a 4.1 usage rate boost and an increase in assist percentage when Sapper is on the bench, so his fantasy upside has increased due to more volume. Yesterday, 1:56 pm
  • Kemba Walker scores 31 points in win vs. PHX
    Kemba Walker made 10-of-18 from the field for 31 points against the Suns during a 120-106 win on Sunday, adding four rebounds, nine assists and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

    Advice: That's his 13th game with 30-plus points this season to match his career high from last year. Even with a really rough six-game slump earlier this month, Kemba is performing very well since the break with averages of 24.2 points, 3.7 boards, 5.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 3.7 treys. The main reason why is Kemba has put up an awesome 70.3 effective field goal percentage on his catch-and-shoot attempts in his previous 16 games -- also 71.4 percent on his one-dribble treys. He's ballin'. Yesterday, 1:36 pm
  • Ty Lawson (knee) a late scratch vs. Clippers
    Ty Lawson (right knee stiffness) was a late scratch vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

    Advice: Lawson's injury wasn't reported until well after the game began, so this will burn more than a few owners in DFS and deep leagues. He's a perpetual DNP risk even when healthy, and there should be many more reliable options on the waiver wire. Yesterday, 12:57 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (rest) expected to start Sunday
    Tyreke Evans (rest) is expected to be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Clippers, according to Kings' Insider James Ham.

    Advice: Evans will likely remain on a minutes limit today, and with 10 other games on the slate, fantasy GMs should have more attractive options to put on their active roster. With Evans active, guys like Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore will take a slight hit. Yesterday, 12:33 pm
  • Darren Collison (rest) will start on Sunday
    Darren Collison (rest) will return to the starting five for Sunday's matchup with the Clippers.

    Advice: This could mean that Ty Lawson will be returning to the second unit, and his value figures to take a hit with Collison active. In his two games against the Clippers this season, Collison has compiled averages of 18.0 points, 2.0 triples, 3.5 boards, 2.0 assists and just 1.0 turnover per contest on 58.3 percent shooting, so feel free to get him active. Yesterday, 12:24 pm
  • C.J. McCollum scores 32 points on 100.0 eFG%
    C.J. McCollum made scoring 32 points look easy during a 112-100 win over the Wolves on Saturday, making 11-of-13 from the field and all six free throws with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: Not bad on efficiency with a 102.3 true shooting percentage. Damian Lillard said McCollum is the best midrange player in the league, but McCollum said on the Blazers broadcast that he's the best "in the world." He may be right with C.J. way above league average in non-restricted paint scoring, midrange and on 3-pointers. For a guy who gets 48.3 percent of his shots on pull-ups, McCollum is vastly underrated as an elite scorer in the NBA. His fantasy owners certainly don't underrate him thanks to his top-20 value in standard leagues this season. Saturday, 10:24 pm
  • Damian Lillard scores 21 in win
    Damian Lillard made 8-of-13 from the field for 21 points with six points, eight rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

    Advice: The garbage time could've been the main reason why his three-game streak of scoring at least 30 has been snapped. On the other hand, Lillard does have a great efficiency streak still alive with at least a 54.0 true shooting percentage (TS%) in nine straight, totaling a pristine 68.3 TS% and a 35.2 usage rate in that span. He's arguably the hottest scorer in the league and is a big reason why the Blazers won't go away in the race for eighth. Saturday, 10:12 pm
  • Ricky Rubio scores 16 points vs. POR
    Ricky Rubio scored 16 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: This loss puts the Wolves down six games from the No. 8 spot with only 10 games to go, so they're basically dead in the water. We'll see how coach Tom Thibodeau plays this one with Rubio, but it's obvious more minutes are going to Tyus Jones and Kris Dunn. To be clear, the low minutes today had to do with garbage time. With only three games this week, Rubio's fantasy owners may have to weigh their options. Saturday, 9:57 pm
  • Tyus Jones scores one point
    Tyus Jones scored one point with one rebound, four assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: The Wolves are making a change to their rotation with Kris Dunn as more of a wing and Jones locking down the backup PG minutes. Jones has also played 18 minutes next to Ricky Rubio in the last two, so he's filling in there. Jones isn't really a pickup unless you're desperate now or want to stash him for the five-game week starting on Apr. 3. Saturday, 9:52 pm
  • Kris Dunn scores career-high 17 points
    Kris Dunn scored a career-high 17 points against the Blazers on Saturday, adding four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

    Advice: It's looking like Kris Dunn shooting guard time. In the last two games, Dunn has played a combined 31 minutes next to Ricky Rubio and 37 minutes next to Tyus Jones -- the Dunn-Rubio lineups have been torched. Now that the Wolves are basically out of it, Dunn looks like he'll be contributing on a nightly basis. If you need a point guard, he's worth a look. He could be a sneaky player to have in the last full week of the season with five games, but only has three next week. Saturday, 9:49 pm
    Player Note
    Kris Dunn Min - PG,SG
  • Delon Wright scores eight points
    Delon Wright scored eight points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

    Advice: That will work as the Raptors went smaller to help offset not having DeMarre Carroll (back) out there today. Wright does appear to be trending up, but he's still only worth a look in very deep leagues. Saturday, 9:26 pm
  • Seth Curry flops as PG vs. Raptors
    Seth Curry scored 11 points with one rebound, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

    Advice: The Mavs want to get a look Curry as a point guard, but it just wasn't there against a vastly improved defense. We've seen coach Rick Carlisle turn trash to treasure on a lot of point guards, so this should be a positive for Curry after an adjustment period. Of course, fantasy owners in redraft leagues may not enjoy said adjustment period. He still has to be starting in almost all formats. Saturday, 9:20 pm
  • Ty Lawson returned to action on Friday March 24. Saturday, 8:00 am
  • Ty Lawson happy court date is behind him
    Ty Lawson says he feels like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders after getting through a court appearance on Thursday.

    Advice: Lawson denied he violated his probation stemming from a drunken driving case in 2015 and had his next hearing pushed back to May 4. This means he will not be disciplined by the NBA this season. Lawson started at PG on Friday vs. the Warriors and finished with 20 points, two assists and two 3-pointers. "He looked much more relieved," said coach Dave Joerger. "He was the Ty that we know that he is still." Saturday, 7:43 am
  • Stephen Curry scores 27 with 12 dimes in win
    Stephen Curry handed out a season-high 12 assists during a 114-100 win over the Kings on Friday, adding 27 points, seven rebounds, six steals and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: The Warriors assists were all over the place early with 20 in the first half, which was the second straight time they did so in the first half. As for Curry, he also made his 277th triple this season for the third most in NBA history -- he has the first and second most. Not that anyone should've been worried about Curry's shooting slump, but now he's made 52.5 percent from deep with 5.3 treys per game over his last four outings. Expect a big finish until the Warriors lock up their top seed. Saturday, 12:24 am
  • Ty Lawson scores 20 points
    Ty Lawson scored 20 points with two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers against the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: He did his damage early with 18 points in the first half, but the Kings went away from him in the second half. Considering Lawson will likely be rested for several games, he can stay on the wire in fantasy. Friday, 11:46 pm
  • James Harden scores 38 points with 17 dimes
    James Harden scored 38 points during a 117-107 win over the Pelicans on Friday with 17 assists, seven rebounds, one block, two steals and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: That's his NBA-high eighth 30-plus scoring game this month. Harden also scored or assisted on 77 points tonight, and he's currently on pace to set the record for that department this season with 57.7 points per game -- Nate Archibald has the record with 56.8 in 1972-73. He has scored at least 38 points in four straight and will get a big MVP-caliber matchup with Russell Westbrook Sunday afternoon. There will be triple-doubles. Friday, 11:38 pm
  • Pat Beverley scores 17 points
    Patrick Beverley scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers against the Pelicans on Friday.

    Advice: That's two great games in a row with a 14-point game coming on Wednesday. While Beverley isn't known for his offense, he does get a 3.3 usage rate increase when Ryan Anderson (ankle) is on the bench. He should have a solid week and is a must-start player in standard leagues. Friday, 11:30 pm
  • Kris Dunn scores 11 points in loss
    Kris Dunn scored 11 points with seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes vs. the Lakers on Friday.

    Advice: There's a lot to be excited about with this line, but the biggest takeaway is that he logged 25 minutes next to Ricky Rubio. He finished 5-of-12 from the field and his path to minutes will be wider if the Wolves keep using more two-PG lineups, so he's someone to keep an eye on in the final few weeks of the season. Let's see if he can keep it going on Saturday vs. the Blazers. Friday, 11:10 pm
    Player Note
    Kris Dunn Min - PG,SG
  • Ricky Rubio scores 19 points w/ 15 assists
    Ricky Rubio scored 19 points on 5-of-13 shooting with 15 assists, three rebounds, three steals, one block and one triple in Friday's loss to the Lakers.

    Advice: This was the fifth straight loss for the Wolves and they now trail the No. 8 seed (Denver) by 6.5 games. However, Rubio's owners may not have to worry about DNPs or a potential shut-down just yet -- the Wolves used more two-PG lineups tonight and Rubio logged 25 minutes next to Kris Dunn. Even though Dunn's workload should rise, he will likely take minutes away from Brandon Rush and not Rubio if tonight was any indication. Friday, 10:59 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 33, hits 8 triples
    Jordan Clarkson scored a career-high 33 points on 13-of-20 shooting with eight 3-pointers, five assists and two rebounds in 47 minutes in a 130-117 overtime win over the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: What a way to respond after he scored five points on 1-of-9 shooting vs. the Clippers on Tuesday. It's no secret that Clarkson is a high-volume shooter, but Walton said earlier this week that he wants him to find other ways to impact the game if his shot isn't falling. "He’s too good of an athlete. He’s one guy who loves to compete, but you can’t get locked in and focus on the fact you can’t make any shots," Walton said. "That’ll come eventually. Get into someone on defense, make some steals, make some passes, take a charge, do something." Clarkson has been a beast since the Lou Williams trade and should be owned in standard leagues. Friday, 10:26 pm
  • Giannis scores 34 w/ 13 boards, five dimes
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 34 points with 13 rebounds, five assists, three blocks, two steals and one triple in Friday's 100-97 win over the Hawks.

    Advice: He was unconscious in the first quarter, racking up 17 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks, one steal and a triple in 12 minutes. He was coming off a monster 32-point game on Wednesday and is now the first Bucks player with 30 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in consecutive games since Terry Cummings in 1985. The Greek Freak slowed down a bit in March, but he's rolling again and should finish the season as a top-3 fantasy asset. Friday, 9:03 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas scored 34 points in win
    Isaiah Thomas scored 34 points during a 130-120 win over the Suns on Friday, adding two rebounds, seven assists and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Usually, a win with a team-high 34 points when your team dropped 130 would be the headline, but not when Devin Booker more than doubled it tonight. Thomas has to be pleased about getting this win, especially after the Celtics blew their last game in Phoenix earlier this month. Thomas' Celtics are just 1.0 games behind the Cavs and he really wants that No. 1 seed, so he's not likely to rest until the Boston seed is locked up. Friday, 8:27 pm
  • Dennis Schroder scores 28 points in loss
    Dennis Schroder scored 28 points on 11-of-25 shooting with seven rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and three triples vs. the Bucks on Friday.

    Advice: Since Paul Millsap (knee) went down, Schroder is averaging 18.5 points, 6.5 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.4 triples over his last four games, but his efficiency is way down -- he's shooting 36.1 percent from the field with 4.8 turnovers in that span. With that said, tonight's line was encouraging and his owners can look forward to his great matchup with the Nets on Sunday -- Brooklyn has allowed the most fantasy points per game to point guards this season. Friday, 8:21 pm
  • Kemba Walker scores 28 points in loss
    Kemba Walker's 28 points weren't enough in Friday's 112-105 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Advice: The loss snapped a three-game winning streak for the Hornets and they are now 3.0 games behind the No. 8 seed (Heat). Walker shot 10-of-20 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line with five assists, two rebounds, two steals, one block and five triples in 39 minutes. His value will be safe until the Hornets are mathematically eliminated from a playoff spot. Friday, 7:35 pm
  • Ty Lawson and Kosta Koufos starting Friday
    Ty Lawson and Kosta Koufos are starting vs. the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: The Kings are starting Lawson, Buddy Hield, Arron Afflalo, Kosta Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein. Lawson was rested last game, but he's looking at a heavy workload tonight with Darren Collison resting this time around. He's still a low-end option going forward. Friday, 7:14 pm
  • Jeremy Lin scores 14 points vs. Wizards
    Jeremy Lin scored 14 points with one rebound, three assists and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes against the Wizards on Friday.

    Advice: He did have a very slight tweak of his right ankle in the first quarter, but he did stay in the game. The Nets will likely keep Lin's minutes under 30, so his fantasy upside isn't the greatest for owners needing volume stats. Friday, 6:55 pm
  • Tyreke Evans resting on Friday
    Tyreke Evans will rest on Friday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: This decision is coming from the Kings, as Evans just said that he feels "better than ever with my knee." With the Kings tanking, he's going to pick up too many DNPs to help most fantasy owners. Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore should be busy tonight. Friday, 5:43 pm
  • Collison, Tyreke and Tolliver resting vs. GSW
    Darren Collison, Tyreke Evans and Anthony Tolliver are all out for planned rest against the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: This is pretty much status quo for the Kings as they get a look at their youth. Ty Lawson should get big minutes in the first unit while the Kings piece it together in the second unit. Collison isn't worth owning now that he's basically resting every other game. Friday, 5:42 pm
  • Ty Lawson denies violating his probation
    Ty Lawson denied that he violated his probation is a court hearing on Thursday.

    Advice: The Associated Press reported that Lawson "wanted his vehicle equipped with an interlock device that would test him for alcohol consumption so he could prove he's not drinking." The judge agreed and will hold another hearing in May to determine if Lawson should face more severe punishment. Thus, it appears he won't face any discipline from the NBA this season. Lawson may have to deal with a suspension at the start of the 2017-18 season, depending on what happens in his next court hearing. Friday, 7:13 am
  • Tyreke Evans says he 'feels better than ever'
    Tyreke Evans says he feels "better than ever with my knee."

    Advice: Evans is averaging only 22 minutes per contest and has sat out six of the Kings last 11 games. However, he believes he can handle a more significant workload. "I’m still maintaining," said Evans. "I feel better than ever with my knee. No pain, just playing free." Evans will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and is eager to prove he still has plenty left in the tank. "A lot of teams know I had tough injuries so they want to see how I’m moving, how I’m playing every night." Friday, 6:55 am
  • Jeremy Lin returned to action on Thursday March 23. Friday, 1:08 am
  • Damian Lillard scores 30 points in win vs. NY
    Damian Lillard scored 30 points during a 110-95 win over the Knicks on Thursday, adding four rebounds, five assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: That's seven 30-plus scoring games in March to tie him with James Harden for the most in the NBA this month. Since the break, Lillard averaged 31.1 points, 4.6 boards, 5.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 3.4 treys on 49.5 percent from the field and 90.0 percent from the line. His Blazers are just 1.0 games behind the Nuggets for the No. 8 seed, so this will likely come down to the wire. Lillard has been the No. 2 player for total value in standard leagues since the break. Thursday, 10:04 pm
  • Seth Curry will get more minutes at PG
    Coach Rick Carlisle said the Mavs "need" to take an extended look at Seth Curry as a point guard going forward.

    Advice: Interesting. Curry played mostly the two during a win over the Clippers and he's played a lot of two since his breakout. Curry was not a very good point guard earlier in his career, and the change to the SG is part of the reason he's been so good. Regardless, Curry has a big role coming his way and he should continue to be a must-start player in all formats. Curry turned in a strong Thursday game, scoring 23 points with three rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in a win over the Clippers. Thursday, 9:08 pm
  • Delon Wright scores 13 points in win at Miami
    Delon Wright scored 13 points in a 101-84 win at Miami on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and two turnovers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: The younger Raptors came to the rescue to earn this comeback victory with Wright posting a +26 in +/- today. We've seen Wright play important minutes before and did so against John Wall back on Mar. 3, but he still wasn't able to get consistent run even after his coach talked him up. This is probably only going to be a timeshare for Wright and Cory Joseph, so most fantasy owners may want to steer clear. Thursday, 8:06 pm
  • Tyler Johnson scores 11 points vs. Raps
    Tyler Johnson scored 11 points with one rebound, one assist, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer against the Raptors on Thursday.

    Advice: Somewhat surprisingly, Johnson hasn't really taken a step forward since Dion Waiters (ankle) went down. In those three, he averaged 14.0 points, 3.3 boards, 2.7 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.0 treys. Johnson is still hanging around top 100 value in standard leagues over his last 10 games, so he's still a player almost all owners should be starting. Thursday, 7:31 pm
  • Jeremy Lin (ankle) scores 13 points in return
    Jeremy Lin (ankle) finished with 13 points, five assists, three boards, one 3-pointer and two turnovers in 21 minutes in his return to the lineup against the Suns on Thursday.

    Advice: Lin ended up missing just one game after spraining his ankle on Sunday. He did not seem bothered by the injury on Thursday. The game was a complete blowout, with the Nets winning by 28 points, or else Lin would have likely played more than just 21 minutes. The good news is that the limited workload tonight probably increases the chances he won't be rested and will play normal minutes on Friday. Thursday, 7:30 pm
  • Seth Curry in the starting lineup
    Seth Curry (shoulder) is in the starting lineup against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: He had a minor shoulder injury against the Warriors, but there was no word of any lingering damage heading into this game. While he has been struggling, get him in your lineup. Thursday, 5:25 pm
  • Jeremy Lin (right ankle) available to play
    Jeremy Lin (ankle) will start against the Suns on Thursday.

    Advice: His ankle sprain from Sunday will only cost him one game. Lin's playing time was on the rise and he even played 30 minutes last Thursday, so the Nets may get him back up to minutes in the upper 20s. With Lin back, Spencer Dinwiddie will move back to the bench and Isaiah Whitehead will lose playing time. Lin is safe to start tonight, but the Nets may take it easy on him for Friday night. Thursday, 2:48 pm
  • Atkinson expects Jeremy Lin (ankle) to play
    Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said he expects Jeremy Lin (ankle) to play on Thursday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: "My gut is it’s very positive," Atkinson said. "I like what I see in him shooting etcetera." Atkinson previously said that Spencer Dinwiddie will start the rest of the season, and with Archie Goodwin making a case for more minutes, Lin's workload will likely be monitored. He may have to play off the ball more as well. Lin could be shut down at a moment's notice, so his outlook going forward isn't the best. Thursday, 6:48 am
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 32 points in win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points in a 116-98 win at Sacramento on Wednesday, adding 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

    Advice: It's just the second time this month he's hit the 30-point mark, and Antetokounmpo scored at least 20 points in just two of his previous six games. The Bucks finally had their six-game road trip end and they'll be heading back home this weekend. Antetokounmpo is much better at home with a 54.0 field goal percentage with better averages in points, boards, steals, blocks and threes at home compared to being on the road. After a down couple weeks, Giannis should go back to being a top-three guy going forward. Wednesday, 10:24 pm
  • Tyreke Evans scores 18 points
    Tyreke Evans scored 18 points with three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He did not play in the previous two games and will continue to be rested going forward. Evans will be a free agent this summer and it'll be interesting to see who pays up for him with all of his injury history. Wednesday, 10:00 pm
  • Dennis Schroder w/ 10 turnovers in road loss
    Dennis Schroder committed a career-high 10 turnovers during Wednesday's 104-100 defeat, adding 18 points (5-of-16 FGs, 8-of-8 FTs) with six assists and two rebounds.

    Advice: Schroder's previous career-high was seven turnovers but he simply couldn't get out of his own way vs. John Wall tonight. Miscues have been a constant issue for him in the NBA, but he's done enough over the past few weeks for owners to overlook tonight's unsightly 'double-double'. Wednesday, 8:36 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas scores 25 points vs. Pacers
    Isaiah Thomas scored 25 points during a 109-100 win over the Pacers on Wednesday, adding five assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: His team-high scoring output marked the 34th consecutive time he's lead the Celtics in scoring. In the last 40 years, only Michael Jordan has posted a longer streak -- MJ did it in 1988 and 1987. Thomas is also closing in on the franchise record for 3-pointers in a season and is only nine behind Antoine Walker in 2002. Wednesday, 8:25 pm
  • Kemba Walker scores 22 points on 21 shots
    Kemba Walker needed 21 shots to score 22 points on Wednesday, adding seven assists, three rebounds and one clutch 3-pointer in 33 minutes of action.

    Advice: Walker is jacking up nearly 10 three-pointers per game in March, putting him in Steph Curry and James Harden territory. He was 1-of-6 from deep tonight and all his owners can do is wait for him to snap out of his current cold spell. His next chance comes vs. Kyrie Irving and the Cavs on Friday. Wednesday, 6:41 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play vs. Milwaukee
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play vs. the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Evans went scoreless in 14 minutes his last time out, and even if his ankle has fully recovered he's a dubious fantasy option at this stage of the season. Wednesday, 5:13 pm
  • Ty Lawson, Kosta Koufos resting Wednesday
    Ty Lawson and Kosta Koufos will both be rested for Wednesday's game vs. Milwaukee.

    Advice: Darren Collison and Langston Galloway should pick up extra minutes with Lawson out of the picture, while Koufos' absence opens things up for Georgios Papagiannis, Willie Cauley-Stein and Skal Labissiere. Wednesday, 4:44 pm
  • Jeremy Lin probable for Thursday
    Jeremy Lin (ankle) is probable to play against the Suns on Thursday.

    Advice: His Sunday ankle sprain looks like it's only going to cost him one game. With Lin back, Spencer Dinwiddie and Isaiah Whitehead will be losing minutes. Lin is probably worth owning, but the Nets may take it easy on him to get a look at their younger guards. Wednesday, 1:57 pm
  • Nets 'hopeful' Lin (ankle) will play Thursday
    Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said he is "hopeful" that Jeremy Lin (ankle) will be able to play Thursday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Atkinson said the decision on Lin would be made on Thursday. Even if Lin is able to suit up, he will likely be placed on a strict minutes limit. Nonetheless, Lin's return will greatly reduce the fantasy value of Spencer Dinwiddie and Archie Goodwin. Wednesday, 10:50 am
  • Tyler Ennis returned to action on Tuesday March 21. Wednesday, 12:20 am
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 22 in big win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 8-of-21 shots for 22 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks in 36 minutes of Tuesday's 93-90 win over the Blazers.

    Advice: Giannis tweaked an ankle on Saturday, but was never really in jeopardy of missing this game. This was a huge win for the Bucks, who now sit just 1/2 game in front of the No. 8 seeded Heat. This is good news for his owners, as the Bucks are going to need everything he has to offer in order to ensure the Bucks make the playoffs. Tuesday, 10:05 pm
  • Allen Crabbe plays 31 minutes in loss
    Allen Crabbe came off the bench and played 31 minutes on Tuesday, finishing with 11 points, five rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer on 4-of-11 shooting.

    Advice: Crabbe's not a must-own player, averaging just 9.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on 36 percent shooting over his last five games. But he's also averaging 30 minutes a night over that stretch and can get hot at any time. If he starts seeing his shots drop, he might be worth grabbing in case he's getting ready to go on a run. Tuesday, 10:00 pm
  • Damian Lillard scores 31 in loss to Bucks
    Damian Lillard hit 13-of-26 shots and two 3-pointers on his way to 31 points, five rebounds, seven assists and four steals in Tuesday's tough loss to the Bucks.

    Advice: Lillard did his job tonight and C.J. McCollum was right there with him, hitting 9-of-17 shots and a 3-pointer for 21 points in the loss. The Blazers didn't get much from their bench and Noah Vonleh and Moe Harkless are generally lacking as starters, and the Blazers are still on the outside looking in at the playoffs, 1.0 games behind the Nuggets for the No. 8 seed. So this was a very tough home loss. Tuesday, 9:51 pm
  • Steph Curry plays well in easy win
    Stephen Curry faced off against brother Seth Curry on Tuesday and hit 7-of-14 shots and three 3-pointers for 17 points, five boards, nine assists and two steals in a 112-87 win over the Mavs.

    Advice: Klay Thompson stayed red-hot, hitting 9-of-15 shots and five 3-pointers for 23 points and three steals, and the Warriors have now won five straight games without Kevin Durant. And that number should improve to six with a date against the Kings on Friday night. Tuesday, 8:55 pm
  • Seth faces off with Steph, hurts shoulder
    Seth Curry started against brother Stephen Curry on Tuesday and hit 4-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, three boards, four assists and a steal in 27 minutes of Tuesday's 112-87 blowout loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Seth on facing off against Steph: "It was a lot of fun until the game started and they were beating up on us." On a serious note, Curry suffered some sort of left shoulder injury during the game and said it was sore afterwards. We're going to throw him on the injury report, so make sure he's good to go before the Mavs face the Clippers on Thursday. He dealt with shoulder issues earlier this season, so it's definitely something to keep an eye on. Tuesday, 8:44 pm
  • Tyler Johnson does it all on Tuesday
    Tyler Johnson came off the bench and hit 7-of-17 shots and two 3-pointers for 17 points, six rebounds, four assists and five steals in 29 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Suns.

    Advice: He benefitted by playing the Suns but still put up a fantastic fantasy line tonight. He's rolling again, averaging 18 points, 3.7 boards, 3.3 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.3 3-pointers over his last three games. And with Dion Waiters out with an ankle injury, shouldn't be slowing down anytime soon. Tuesday, 8:22 pm
  • Isaiah Whitehead plays 28 minutes off bench
    Isaiah Whitehead played 28 minutes off the bench on Tuesday and hit 2-of-9 shots for seven points, four rebounds, two assists and a block.

    Advice: Whitehead has scored eight or fewer points in four of his last five games and the starting job officially belongs to Spencer Dinwiddie, while Jeremy Lin is currently out with an ankle injury. Whitehead's worth keeping an eye on right now, but that's about it. He was outplayed by Aaron Goodwin, who hit 5-of-10 shots for 10 points, five boards, three assists and two blocks in just 18 minutes. In addition to Lin creating some extra minutes for Whitehead, the absence of Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) also works in his favor. Tuesday, 7:41 pm
  • Antetokounmpo (ankle) starting vs. Blazers
    Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is starting vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

    Advice: He tweaked his right ankle while blocking Draymond Green's shot on Saturday, but wasn't listed on the injury report and should be fine. We'll let you know how he fares after the game. Tuesday, 7:00 pm
  • Jeremy Lin (ankle) out Tuesday vs. Detroit
    Jeremy Lin (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Lin was doubtful heading into this one, so it's not surprising at all to see the oft-injured guard hit the sidelines. Head coach Kenny Atkinson has already said that Spencer Dinwiddie will close out the year as Brooklyn's starting point guard, so Lin figures to lose some value once he's eventually cleared as he'll be confined to a reserve role. Brook Lopez should be more active on offense with Lin watching from the sidelines. Atkinson did say that Lin is "trending positive" when asked about Lin's injury situation, but at this point in the season, we wouldn't recommend clinging to injured players. Tuesday, 2:50 pm
  • Tyler Ennis (shoulder) available to play Tues
    Tyler Ennis (left shoulder) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Ennis tweaked his shoulder during Monday's practice, but it's not going to be something that forces him to the sidelines. That being said, Ennis has been a non-factor in the rotation as of late, so whether he plays or not will be irrelevant in fantasy hoops. Tuesday, 11:19 am
  • Giannis tweaks ankle in Saturday's loss
    Giannis Antetokounmpo tweaked his right ankle while blocking Draymond Green's shot on Saturday and immediately left the game.

    Advice: He scored just nine points in the blowout loss and played 31 minutes, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious. We expect him to play on Tuesday night, but owners of the Greek Freak should watch for injury updates prior to game time in order to be certain he's playing tonight. Tuesday, 3:08 am
  • James Harden does his usual thing
    James Harden scored a game-high 39 points with 11 assists, seven rebounds, four steals and four 3-pointers in Monday's win against the Nuggets.

    Advice: The Beard has 38 or more points in three straight games and four of his past five outings. He has managed three or more 3-pointers in five of his past six contests while rolling up two or more steals in four straight and six of the past seven. Harden continues to post huge fantasy totals and the Rockets will not rest their players until they're locked into a playoff seed, so the good times will continue to roll. Monday, 9:34 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 23, hits seven triples
    Stephen Curry scored 23 points and hit seven 3-pointers on Monday vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Curry and Thompson combined to score 57 points with 14 triples in an easy win. He shot 8-of-17 from the field with six assists, four rebounds and five turnovers, and the good news is that he was able to rest for the entire fourth quarter. Considering he only played 30 minutes, his fantasy owners should be expecting him to play vs. the Mavericks on the second night of a back-to-back set on Tuesday in Dallas. Monday, 8:44 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas scores 25 points in return
    Isaiah Thomas (knee) returned from a two-game absence and scored 25 points in a 110-102 win over the Wizards on Monday, adding four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two triples.

    Advice: He admitted that his knee isn't 100 percent, but there was no doubt that he would play. "I can’t sit this one out," Thomas said before the game. "I know what’s at stake, I know it’s a big game for us." The Celtics now have a 2.5 game cushion over the Wizards for second place in the East, and they only trail the Cavaliers by 2.0 games. It's possible IT4 could get another DNP-rest down the stretch, but the good news for his fantasy owners is that the Celtics play three more times this week. Monday, 7:38 pm
  • Schroder scores 20 w/ six dimes, two blocks
    Dennis Schroder scored 20 points on 8-of-17 shooting in a loss to the Hornets on Monday.

    Advice: That's four straight losses for the Hawks and it doesn't get any easier on Wednesday vs. the Hawks. As for Schroder, this was a nice bounce-back game after he was limited to eight points on 2-of-14 shooting in his previous game. He played 31 minutes with six assists, three rebounds, two blocks and three triples, and more big lines are likely on the way -- Paul Millsap (knee) will miss at least one more game and Schroder gets a 3.7 usage rate bump when Millsap is off the court. Monday, 6:43 pm
  • Isaiah Thomas (knee) will play Monday vs. WAS
    Isaiah Thomas (knee) will play Monday vs. Washington.

    Advice: Thomas was a full participant during shootaround, and head coach Brad Steven said that Thomas will not have a minutes restriction following his two-game stint on the sidelines, so he's safe to deploy in all settings. Marcus Smart should return to the bench with IT4 active, and his value will take a decent sized hit with the return to the second unit. Monday, 2:56 pm
  • Jeremy Lin (ankle) doubtful for Tuesday
    Jeremy Lin (ankle) is doubtful to play Tuesday vs. Detroit.

    Advice: While Lin has downplayed the injury, the Nets have absolutely no incentive to rush him back to the court, so there's a good chance he could be looking at a multi-game absence here despite being listed as "day-to-day." Spencer Dinwiddie will be drawing the start in his place, and there will be more minutes available for guys like Archie Goodwin and Isaiah Whitehead. Unfortunately, at this juncture in the fantasy season, Lin is a cut candidate in all leagues without an IR-spot. Monday, 1:35 pm
  • Tyler Ennis tweaks left shoulder at practice
    Tyler Ennis tweaked his left shoulder during Monday's practice and he'll be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

    Advice: Ennis wasn't able to finish the scrimmage portion of Monday's practice following the shoulder tweak, so there's a chance he could be forced to the sidelines on Tuesday night. That being said, Ennis has been a negligible part of the rotation over the past three, so his potential absence from the rotation won't have any real consequences in fantasy hoops. Monday, 1:15 pm
  • Gentry wants Holiday aggressive on offense
    Alvin Gentry said he wants Jrue Holiday to be more aggressive in looking for his shot.

    Advice: "We need to figure out a way for him to keep that [scorer's] mentality, even when he's the primary ball-handler," said Gentry of Holiday. Gentry said he felt bringing Tim Frazier into the starting five helped Holiday to act as more of a scorer playing off the ball, so hopefully, Jrue can keep his momentum going following Sunday's 21-point performance. Monday, 11:55 am
  • Darren Collison struggles in Sunday's loss
    Darren Collison misfired on seven of his eight field-goal attempts in Sunday's 118-102 loss against the Spurs, finishing with just two points, four assists and two rebounds in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Collison has turned in back-to-back disappointing efforts, hitting just five of his 21 field goal attempts. He had the chance to shine and be the focal point of the offense with Arron Afflalo (personal), Tyreke Evans (ankle) and Ben McLemore (rest) sidelined, but his shot was not falling and he struggled mightily against San Antonio's defense. He'll have two full days to rest before the team's next outing against Milwaukee on Wednesday. Mar 19, 7:07 pm
  • Damian Lillard erupts for 49 points & nine 3s
    Damian Lillard was unstoppable vs. the Heat on Sunday, pouring in 49 points on 14-of-21 field goals and 12-of-12 free throws, while tying the Blazers' franchise record with nine 3-pointers.

    Advice: Lillard has been awesome in March, helping the Blazers move to within one game of the No. 8 seed Nuggets, and he earned a ton of milestones with tonight's performance. He fell just two points shy of his career-high in scoring, matched his career-best streak with six consecutive games of 25+ points, and became the first player in Blazers' history to make 1,000 three-pointers in his career. His recent onslaught is carrying fantasy owners at the ideal moment. Mar 19, 6:43 pm
  • Jrue Holiday goes 4-of-5 from deep, scores 21
    Jrue Holiday went 4-of-5 from downtown on Sunday, hitting 8-of-16 shots overall to finish with 21 points, seven assists, three rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Holiday hasn't been great with DeMarcus Cousins in the lineup, so it was nice to see him playing with confidence even with Boogie active tonight. He's been a top-75 value since the break, and is trending up, which is all owners can ask for in the midst of fantasy playoffs. Mar 19, 5:58 pm
  • Jordan Crawford scores 22 pts on 9-of-13 FGs
    Jordan Crawford played 21 minutes off the bench on Sunday to finish with 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting, including a 4-of-7 mark from downtown.

    Advice: Crawford has been a great fit for the Pelicans' second unit, providing an offensive punch with 13.0 points, 2.5 triples and 3.2 assists per game. Tonight's 22 points were the most he's scored in a Pelicans' jersey, and he's worth a glance if you need a cheap points-and-3s specialist -- he added just two boards tonight, without any assists, steals or blocks. Mar 19, 5:57 pm
  • Kris Dunn quiet in road loss vs. Pelicans
    Kris Dunn had another quiet night on Sunday with two points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 13 minutes during a loss to the Pelicans.

    Advice: The Wolves lost five straight road games and tonight's defeat dropped them below the Pelicans into the No. 12 seed. They trail the Nuggets by five games for the No. 8 seed with just 13 games remaining, so it's possible that Dunn will be unleashed if they eventually decide to rest key players like Ricky Rubio (10 points, 14 assists). Even if that does happen, however, it would likely be too late for Dunn to help many owners. Mar 19, 5:47 pm
    Player Note
    Kris Dunn Min - PG,SG
  • Tyreke Evans, Afflalo, McLemore out Sunday
    Tyreke Evans (ankle), Arron Afflalo (personal) and Ben McLemore (personal) will all sit out vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: Malachi Richardson (hamstring) is also out tonight, so once again it will be all hands on deck for the Kings. Darren Collison, Ty Lawson and Buddy Hield should do the heavy lifting, with some help from Langston Galloway and Garrett Temple. Mar 19, 2:27 pm
  • Seth Curry scores eight points
    Seth Curry scored eight points with one rebound, one assist and one turnover in 31 minutes against the Nets on Sunday.

    Advice: He's finally in a slump. On top of that, the usage is really tailing off, too. In his last five games, Curry averaged just 8.4 points, 1.6 boards, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 treys on just 35.9 percent from the field. His minutes are still there at with at least 31 in the four games without garbage time, so his role is still solidified. He was too good for too long to not trust, so keep him active. He gets his brother on Tuesday for his next time out. Mar 19, 12:32 pm
  • Isaiah Whitehead gets 23 minutes
    Isaiah Whitehead scored 10 points with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Mavs on Sunday.

    Advice: He should have more minutes coming his way with Jeremy Lin (ankle) getting hurt in this game. While Lin's injury didn't look bad, the Nets have always said things like "super cautious" when it comes to injuries. Whitehead was playing more two guard lately, so maybe he can get minutes in the upper 20s. His shot is going down more often and he does block shots, but he's still not a strong speculative add unless Lin is certain to miss time. Mar 19, 11:34 am
  • Stephen Curry scores 28 points in 117-92 win
    Stephen Curry scored 28 points during a 117-92 win over the Bucks on Saturday, adding four rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and six 3-pointers.

    Advice: Hopefully, this can get him going. Curry has shockingly made just 31.0 percent from deep in his previous games since the break. What's more, Curry has been open on 74.8 percent of those 3-pointers, and he also made just 27.9 percent of his pullup treys. This is Stephen Curry we're talking about here, so he could drop 50 points in his next game with no notice. The Warriors do have a road-road back-to-back set to kick off their four-game week, so check back if coach Steve Kerr wants to rest his guys for one of those. Mar 18, 10:55 pm
  • Giannis Anteotokounmpo gets held to 9 points
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored nine points during a blowout 117-92 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding three rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals in 31 minutes.

    Advice: The Warriors know how to defend drivers as well as just about anyone and Antetokounmpo got a little too much Draymond Green today. He came into this game with a 53.9 field goal percentage in March and he continues to flirt with his two steals and two blocks per game. His fantasy owners will have a big advantage next week with the Bucks suiting up for four games. Mar 18, 10:42 pm
  • James Harden scores 40 in triple-double
    James Harden had another triple-double against the Nuggets during a 109-105 win on Saturday, scoring 40 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, eight turnovers and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: That extends his NBA record seven 40-point triple-doubles in one season. Harden also has four consecutive triple-doubles, and it does help he's camping out under the rim more often these days. The Rockets are not expected to rest their players until they are locked in to their seed to allow them to grow as a team and develop chemistry. That is music to the ears of Harden fantasy owners. Mar 18, 10:31 pm
  • Kemba Walker scores 16 points vs. Wizards
    Kemba Walker made 5-of-18 from the field for 16 points with two rebounds, six assists and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes during a 98-93 win over the Wizards on Saturday.

    Advice: It took a while, but Walker is finally cold. In his last four, he's made just 33.8 percent from the field for his 17.0 points per game. Walker has been getting killed with mid-range misses, making just 3-of-14 in that span while he's also been below average at the rim at 50.0 percent -- league average was 60.3 percent. Walker's owners shouldn't worry and this is nothing new for the streaky guard. Mar 18, 7:41 pm
  • Damian Lillard scores 27 points in win
    Damian Lillard scored 27 points with five rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pionters in 34 minutes during a 113-97 in Saturday's win over the Hawks.

    Advice: It's Lillard time right now. Dame's confidence as a shooter is back with at least three treys in each of his last five games, averaging 32.8 points per game on 50.0 percent from the field and 97.3 percent from the line on his 7.4 attempts per outing. Lillard's Blazers will not go away and are just 2.0 games behind the Nuggets before the Denver vs. Houston game tonight. Lillard looks like he'll be a top-20 player going forward. Mar 18, 6:35 pm
  • C.J. McCollum scores 22 points
    C.J. McCollum scored 22 points with six rebounds, five assists, two blocks, one steal and no turnovers against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Advice: That eight-point Tuesday dud is forgiven now and C.J. has been very effective in his other recent games. Even with that game factored into his last five outings, McCollum averaged 23.2 points, 3.4 boards, 4.2 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.6 steals and 1.6 treys on 51.1 percent from the field and 94.1 percent from the line. He's elite and has been a second-round player this season. Mar 18, 6:25 pm
  • Allen Crabbe scores 16 points
    Allen Crabbe scored 16 points with three rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Advice: The Hawks struggled to pick Crabbe up in transition to help the Blazers pull ahead early. Crabbe's playing time hasn't changed too much with Evan Turner missing time, but he has hit the mid-30s more often because that's how coach Terry Stotts rolls. Crabbe has been a mid-round guy, but his upside isn't the greatest and he is kind of Mar 18, 6:10 pm
  • Dennis Schroder makes just 2-of-14 FGAs
    Dennis Schroder made just 2-of-14 from the field for eight points with three rebounds, seven assists, four steals and one 3-pointer against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: He was actually on a roll a few days ago, but this woeful outing and a 4-of-16 shooting line on Thursday puts him on the other end of the spectrum. Schroder probably isn't near the doghouse yet, but you never know when it comes to coach Mike Budenholzer. He also had a handful of defensive lapses, so that won't help. He'll get a tough matchup against Kemba Walker on Monday to start his four-game week. Mar 18, 5:51 pm
  • Darren Collison scores 10 points
    Darren Collison scored 10 points with three rebounds in 27 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: It was somewhat disappointing for Collison, who has a decent chance to rest on Sunday. Most fantasy owners may want to jump ship and the Kings do only have three games for the upcoming week, so one day off would make an undesirable player to use. Malachi Richardson returning next week won't help him either. Mar 18, 2:32 pm
  • Collison, Temple, Buddy, WCS & Kosta starting
    Darren Collison, Garrett Temple, Buddy Hield, Willie Cauley-Stein and Kosta Koufos will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: Collison is back after a day off. With plenty of resting players behind him, he should be getting some heavy minutes against Russell Westbrook. The bad news is more rest is likely coming, so he probably won't be very fun to own when he's not starting. Mar 18, 11:40 am
  • Evans, Afflalo, McLemore ruled out Saturday
    Tyreke Evans (ankle), Arron Afflalo (personal) and Ben McLemore (personal) have all been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Evans has been battling a nagging ankle injury. He played just 14 scoreless minutes on Wednesday. There will obviously be plenty of minutes available for the Kings guards that are active on Saturday. Darren Collison sat out Wednesday's game to rest but will be back on Saturday. Buddy Hield should see plenty of playing time. Ty Lawson, Garrett Temple and Langston Galloway will also likely log additional minutes. Mar 18, 9:33 am
  • Stephen Curry (ankle) shows no sign of injury
    Stephen Curry (ankle) showed no lingering signs of injury at practice on Friday.

    Advice: Curry tweaked his ankle in the first quarter of Thursday's victory over Orlando and ended up heading to the locker room with about seven minutes left in the game to get treatment on the ankle. However, Curry seems to have avoided even a minor injury and is fully expected to suit up Saturday night vs. the Bucks. Mar 18, 7:05 am
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 21
    Jordan Clarkson scored 21 points in 38 minutes vs. the Bucks on Friday.

    Advice: He made his third consecutive start at point guard and got a few extra minutes with Nick Young and D'Angelo Russell getting ejected in the third quarter. Clarkson shot 8-of-20 from the field with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and four triples, and he's thriving in his new role with averages of 18.5 points, 3.0 assists, 2.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 2.0 triples in his previous two starts. Coach Luke Walton hinted before the game that his lineups aren't set in stone going forward and that he wants to keep trying out different combinations, but Clarkson should be owned in most leagues right now. Mar 17, 10:50 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 26 points in win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points before fouling out of Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: He fouled out of a game for the fourth time this season, but at least this time he fouled out in the final minute. Giannis shot 11-of-16 from the field in 35 minutes, adding eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks, one triple and four turnovers. The Bucks have won eight out of their last nine games and are seventh in the East, so the Greek Freak will feast the rest of the way with four games on the schedule in each of the next two weeks. Mar 17, 10:18 pm
  • Jrue Holiday scores 19 points
    Jrue Holiday scored 19 points with three rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks in 28 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: If DeMarcus Cousins misses time, that should help Holiday's output. Holiday gets a 5.8 usage rate increase when Cousins is off the floor and he's also much more efficient, too. Holiday had a rough time with Cousins earlier this year, but he was playing better after some time with him. He'll be a better DFS play without Boogie, but you're obviously starting him in season long regardless. Mar 17, 10:08 pm
  • Jordan Crawford scores seven points
    Jordan Crawford scored seven points with five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: The Pelicans didn't need his scoring in this game because Solomon Hill had the game of his life. Crawford is still giving the team good minutes, but his hot start with the two different 19-point games last week seems to be his high point. He's not the strongest hold. Mar 17, 9:52 pm
  • James Harden drops 41-14-11 line in loss
    James Harden had no help in a 128-112 loss in New Orleans on Friday, scoring 41 points with 14 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: Nobody else in the starting lineup scored more than eight points for the Rockets in this blowout loss. Harden played the entire third quarter and may have played the entire fourth, but the Rockets were just too far behind and coach Mike D'Antoni pulled the plug. This makes sense for the Rockets because they'll have to play in Denver on Saturday. Harden set the franchise record for most assists in a season, and he did it with almost a month to spare. He also has the most 40-point triple-doubles in a single season with six. Mar 17, 9:49 pm
  • Tyler Johnson scores 23 points
    Tyler Johnson scored 23 points on 9-of-13 shooting vs. the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: With Dion Waiters suffering a potentially serious ankle injury, Johnson is looking at a decent bump in value. He played 32 minutes vs. the Wolves with three assists, two rebounds, two blocks and two triples, but he's already owned in the vast majority of competitive leagues anyways. The bad news is that the Heat only play three times next week after Sunday's game vs. the Blazers. Mar 17, 8:51 pm
  • Ricky Rubio scores 20 points in loss to MIA
    Ricky Rubio stayed hot on Friday vs. the Heat with 20 points, six assists, two steals and one block.

    Advice: He finished 8-of-14 from the field and 4-of-4 from the line with three turnovers in 33 minutes. Coach Tom Thibodeau has been encouraging Rubio to shoot more often and it's paying dividends, as he's now scored 20+ points in four straight games which is the longest streak of his career. As long as the Wolves are within striking distance of the No. 8 seed, Rubio's workload will be safe -- they are 4.5 games behind Denver. Mar 17, 8:00 pm
  • Seth Curry scores just seven points
    Seth Curry scored seven points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: The 17 minutes can be chalked up to the Mavs losing by 42 points here. On the other hand Curry has slowed down considerably with single-digit scoring in three of his last four. We've seen his brother go through some slumps, so it's likely just another case of one of those. Curry has been flirting with early-round value since the start of 2017, so his owners have to just keep using him until he figures it out. Mar 17, 6:37 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson starting; SG is undetermined
    Jordan Clarkson will get another start against the Bucks on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Luke Walton said he didn't know who he would start next to Clarkson. We've seen D'Angelo Russell, Nick Young and David Nwaba get starts, but nobody has really stepped up. Walton also said on Thursday it would be "by committee" at guard, so it's likely to change on a nightly basis. Clarkson should be owned in standard leagues while Russell's fantasy owners have to hang tight for him to snap out of this brutal funk. Mar 17, 11:11 am
  • Stevens 'hopeful' that Thomas can play Monday
    Coach Brad Stevens said he is "hopeful" that Isaiah Thomas (right knee bone bruise) will be able to play Monday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: The Celtics have already ruled Thomas out of both Friday's game vs. the Nets and Sunday's game vs. the 76ers. There has been some speculation that Boston is merely resting their best player against two of the worst teams in the league, but Stevens said it was "not a means of rest" and that Thomas' knee experienced some swelling on Thursday night. Stay tuned over the weekend for more updates. In the meantime, Marcus Smart will start in place of Thomas. Mar 17, 8:23 am
  • Steph Curry ices ankle early in blowout
    Stephen Curry, who left during the first quarter in Thursday's game to have his right ankle attended to, headed to the locker room for good with about seven minutes remaining with a 114-78 blowout lead against the Magic.

    Advice: Steph appears to be fine (and coach Steve Kerr said as much after the game) and he finished with 25 points, nine assists and two 3-pointers in an incredibly easy win. He basically got a new ankle brace and tape job on his first trip to the locker room, and then went in to ice it early with the game completely out of reach for Orlando. Curry could be a sit candidate any time the Warriors are in a back-to-back situation, but they'd still like to finish with the league's best record and they'll need Curry in order to make it happen over the Spurs. Consider him very probable for Saturday's game against the Bucks. Mar 16, 9:33 pm
