  • Lonzo Ball torches Suns with 29/11/9 in win
    Lonzo Ball turned it around against the Suns during a 132-130 win on Friday, making 12-of-27 from the field for 29 points with 11 rebounds, nine assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He just missed becoming the youngest player ever to have a triple-double. The Suns kept going underneath screens and Lonzo made them pay with what could be one of his highest scoring games of the year. He's been known as a pass-first guy since he showed up, but at times coach Luke Walton has said Ball needs to look for his shot and Brandon Ingram said Ball being aggressive makes the team better. He's had a bad debut in summer league, preseason and in the regular season, so maybe he'll keep it going now. He won't play the Suns every night, though. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:24 am
  • Larry Nance scores 14 points in 22 minutes
    Larry Nance scored 14 points with six rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 22 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: Nance seems to have a firm grip on the starting job, and he had a game-saving block on Marquese Chriss on the last play of the contest. He's very comfortable as a rim-running guy and does get a chance at some open jumpers, so there's a chance he can keep scoring in the teens. Plus, he has a knack for defensive stats, so he should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:53 pm
  • Allen Crabbe scores just nine points
    Allen Crabbe scored nine points with one rebound, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: He did not se his minutes go up from his 27 on Wednesday. Coach Kenny Atkinson seems to have a lineup for everything, so the Nets having a lead in the fourth quarter is probably why he didn't give Crabbe as much late run as the loss vs. Indiana. Still, Crabbe should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:49 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll scores 17 points in 28 minute
    DeMarre Carroll scored 17 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: Some NFL coaches are known as quarterback whisperers, but coach Kenny Atkinson seems to be the Carroll whisperer. Carroll played well for the Hawks while Atkinson was there and he's being used at both forward spots in this rotation. He looks healthy and is getting a lot of shots, so he should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:47 pm
  • Robert Covington scores 12 vs. Boston
    Robert Covington scored 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting against the Celtics in 27 minutes.

    Advice: He went off for 29 points in the season opener with six 3-pointers, but tonight's line was probably closer to what we can expect moving forward (with some steals). He grabbed two rebounds with two assists, one block and two 3-pointers, and should be a fun player to own all season for his money stats. He'll get a nice bump on Saturday with Joel Embiid (rest) out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:36 pm
  • Trevor Booker goes for 17 and 11 in win
    Trevor Booker had another gem of a game against the Magic on Friday, scoring 17 points with 11 rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 22 minutes.

    Advice: After his Wednesday 20-10, he is the first player since Kevin Love in 2009 to post double-doubles in each of his team's first two games of a season off the bench. Coach Kenny Atkinson said last week that Booker's role isn't set in stone and the coach has used a whopping 32 different combinations already this year, but Booker is playing just too well and gets minutes at two positions. While he won't be this good, he has to be added in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • Ian Clark scores 11 against former team
    Ian Clark finished with 11 points, one assist and one rebound in 20 minutes off the bench vs. the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: Clark was very active against his former teammates, and he's likely to continue seeing a solid amount of playing time until Rajon Rondo (core muscles) is healthy enough to return. After being buried on the bench with the defending champs, Clark is getting a chance to spread his wings with the Pelicans and the results have been up and down early on. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Timmy Mozzy plays 16 minutes
    Timofey Mozgov scored four points with six rebounds in 16 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: This offense is just too fast and Jarrett Allen continues to look good. It feels like it's just a matter of time before Mozgov loses his starting job. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:14 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic scores career-high 41 points
    Nikola Vucevic scored a career-high 41 points against the Nets during a 126-121 loss on Friday, adding 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and six 3-pointers.

    Advice: Those 3-pointers were obviously a career high, and all that offseason talk of him adding 3-pointers may have not sold it enough. Vucevic is in a great spot with the Magic playing more up-tempo and he's still been able to do work on the glass. He wasn't in demand on draft day, but so far he's looking like a bargain. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:09 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 21 in win over 76ers
    Kyrie Irving got his first win in a Boston uniform on Friday vs. the 76ers, scoring 21 points in a 102-98 victory.

    Advice: Irving hasn't taken off just yet, but the big lines are coming. He hit 7-of-17 shots and 6-of-7 from the line in this one, adding six rebounds, four assists, two steals, one triple and five turnovers. Once he gets a feel for his new team, Irving should flirt with first-round value in 9-category leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Jayson Tatum blocks three shots in win
    Jayson Tatum blocked three shots in Friday's win over Philly, adding 15 points (3-of-8 FGs) and eight rebounds.

    Advice: Tatum didn't hit any 3-pointers and had a few turnovers, but nailed all nine of his free throws and continued to log heavy minutes with 33 tonight. It's going to be interesting to see what the rotation will look like when Marcus Morris (knee) comes back, but Tatum has to be owned right now and we like his chances of sticking in the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Jonathan Isaac gets it going in 2nd half
    Jonathan Isaac scored nine points during his start for Aaron Gordon (ankle) on Friday, adding one rebound, three assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Nets.

    Advice: It looked like it was going to be a lost cause in the first half with three fouls in his first four minutes of action. After Isaac composed himself after the break, he was much smarter on defense and found good shots. Gordon was a game-time call for this game, so he has a chance to play. Still, Isaac is worth a stash because he's earning minutes at two positions. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Shane Larkin plays 19 minutes
    Shane Larkin played 19 minutes on Friday vs. the 76ers, scoring 10 points with four assists, two rebounds and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He played a total of five minutes prior to this game, but entered the rotation with Marcus Smart (ankles) sidelined. Larkin is hoping to make the most of his second shot in the NBA after spending time overseas and he looked more than capable of contributing Friday, but the reality is that he isn't going to play much when Smart comes back. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:38 pm
  • Nemanja Bjelica provides spark off the bench
    Nemanja Bjelica posted 10 points and five rebounds in 13 minutes off the bench Friday against the Jazz.

    Advice: Bjelica was a very efficient 4-of-5 from the field, including makes on each of his 3-pointer attempts. He is averaging 9.5 points and 4.0 rebounds over his first two outings, which is pretty solid production given the amount of mouths to feed in Minnesota. If he can continue producing at this level he'll definitely earn his keep in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:04 pm
  • Yogi Ferrell scores 14 points off the bench
    Yogi Ferrell moved to the bench on Friday vs. the Kings, but still scored 14 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and a triple.

    Advice: Dennis Smith Jr. (knee) sat this one out due to swelling in his knee and has already been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. Houston. Ferrell still played 30 minutes tonight despite coming off the bench, hitting 3-of-8 shots and 7-of-8 free throws. He's a low-end fantasy option, but gets a nice boost in the short term until DSJ comes back. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Allen Crabbe getting the start vs. Orlando
    Allen Crabbe will start against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: After getting a light minute-limit on Wednesday, he should be all set. Crabbe was in the lone lineup for the final five minutes after the Jeremy Lin (knee) injury, so he should be asked to play big minutes in the first unit. This offense is almost perfect for him, so he should be owned in standard leagues. He's a DFS play, too. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:47 pm
  • Jonathan Isaac will start for Aaron Gordon
    Jonathan Isaac will start for Aaron Gordon (ankle) on Friday against the Nets.

    Advice: This was a fairly obvious call based on how Isaac played all 14 of the backup power forward minutes on Wednesday, and he also logged 3.2 minutes next to Gordon, as well. He was terrific on the defensive end and he fits in for this up-tempo matchup, so he could be looking at over 30 minutes. Expect some small-ball lineups to fly as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:47 pm
  • Big Beverley Brand: Lonzo struggles vs. Clips
    Lonzo Ball made 1-of-6 from the field for three points with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes during a 108-92 loss to the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: He got a heavy dose of Patrick Beverley and it did not go well. Per ESPN's stats, Ball went 0-of-2 from the field on the 29 plays that Beverley guarded him, and he had three assist opportunities. Even in a blowout, it's also somewhat interesting that Ball sat out the whole fourth quarter. Perhaps this had to do with his ankle injury, but there's been no talk of that after the game. After getting a tough matchup tonight, he gets an easy matchup against the Suns on Friday. We'll see how he does there. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:50 pm
  • Larry Nance Jr. posts 14 points, 12 boards
    Larry Nance Jr. scored 14 points with 12 rebounds and one block in 30 minutes against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: Brook Lopez has said he meshes well with Nance and coach Luke Walton said he wants a power forward that can play well with Lonzo Ball, so it's looking good for Nance to keep his starting job. Nance had all seven of his makes come from within three feet with five dunks, so he should do very well on efficiency. Nance should be owned in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:44 pm
  • Jonathan Isaac logs 17 minutes in debut
    Magic rookie Jonathan Isaac debuted on Wednesday with four points, eight rebounds and two blocks in 17 minutes of action.

    Advice: Isaac came off the bench and we couldn't have asked for more from the rangy 20-year-old. He averaged 1.4 blocks in just 21.6 minutes this preseason, but he also shot under 40 percent from the field, so most owners in re-draft leagues can just keep an eye on him. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:40 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic has 19 & 13 w/ defensive stats
    Nikola Vucevic started his 2017-18 season with 19 points, 13 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 32 minutes vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Vuc made 6-of-12 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs with just one turnover tonight. He also attempted three 3-pointers, which is encouraging even though he didn't make any of them. After making 30.7 percent of his 75 attempts last season, it looks like Vuc could make a real impact beyond the arc. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:38 pm
  • Yogi Ferrell scores nine points
    Yogi Ferrell scored nine points with two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Even with the 32 minutes, it's clear Ferrell is going to play off the ball with Dennis Smith Jr. running the show. Ferrell can still hit a ton of treys in what looks like a tweaked offense based on the 45 attempts from deep tonight. He's worth owning in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:27 pm
  • Kyrie Irving struggles on Wednesday
    Kyrie Irving made 7-of-25 from the field for 17 points during a 108-100 loss to the Bucks on Wednesday, adding four rebounds, three assists, three steals and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Most people who play DFS will tell you that the Bucks can be a tough matchup for a score-first point guard. Irving has picked up the offense quickly and his assist percentage should be better this year than it was with the Cavs. His Celtics are now 0-2, but he'll get a great matchup against the 76ers on Friday. There's obviously nothing to worry about with Uncle Drew. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:15 pm
  • Trevor Booker notches 20 & 10, plays backup C
    Trevor Booker racked up 20 points and 10 rebounds during the Nets' high-scoring defeat on Wednesday, making 7-of-10 field goals and 6-of-7 free throws.

    Advice: According to the Nets' PR account, this was Booker's first game with at least 20 points and 10 rebounds since Dec. 2013. He didn't have any 3-pointers, assists or defensive stats to round out his line, but that obviously shouldn't bother the lucky handful of owners who started him tonight. Booker did play a lot of backup center tonight, which is worth watching -- it's hard to imagine the Nets keeping him there all season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:11 pm
  • Allen Crabbe plays 27 minutes off bench Wed
    Allen Crabbe played 27 minutes in his Nets debut on Wednesday, making 3-of-5 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs for 12 points, seven rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block.

    Advice: Crabbe missed a lot of time this offseason with a sprained ankle, and the Nets are going to be cautious with his workload early in the season. His 27 minutes tonight were a welcome surprise, and he rounded out the solid line with a pair of 3-pointers. Jeremy Lin also went down tonight with a right knee injury, and if he misses time the Nets could bump Crabbe into the starting five. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:10 pm
  • DeMarre Carroll logs 28 minutes in opener
    DeMarre Carroll started on Wednesday and finished with 10 points, nine boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes of action.

    Advice: Carroll looked good this preseason and it helped that Allen Crabbe was limited by a sprained ankle. The Nets went small a lot tonight, which could have been partly due to the Pacers' own small lineups, but you can do worse than Carroll if you need cheap forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:10 pm
  • Jayson Tatum scores eight with nine boards
    Jayson Tatum scored eight points with nine rebounds, two assists and one steal in 37 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Everyone knew he could score, so what may be the most impressive has been how well he's rebounded with this game and his double-double in his debut. Plus, coach Brad Stevens had him on Giannis Antetokounmpo a lot. He's already playing big minutes at power forward and getting 37 on his first back-to-back shows he's ready for a consistent role. Tatum should be owned in all fantasy leagues and may still get heavy run once Marcus Morris (knee) comes back. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:04 pm
  • Robert Covington scores 29 points w/ seven 3s
    Robert Covington scored 29 points during Wednesday's 120-115 loss, making 9-of-15 shots with seven 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two blocks, one steal and one assist.

    Advice: Covington fell one point shy of his career-high tonight, despite playing a modest 29 minutes. He's going to get a ton of open looks with teams distracted by Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, and this certainly helps answer lingering questions about his role this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:18 pm
  • BKN will be cautious increasing Crabbe's mins
    Kenny Atkinson said he's going to be "cautious" with increasing Allen Crabbe's minutes because of how much time he missed during the preseason.

    Advice: Crabbe missed a lot of training camp and the preseason due to a sprained ankle, so the Nets are going to ease him into things. He's made it clear that his preference would be to start, but for now, it looks like DeMarre Carroll is locked in as the starting small forward. Crabbe could eventually usurp Carroll for that starting spot, but regardless of how he enters the game, he figures to be a fixture in the rotation and should be a solid source of points and triples this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:49 pm
  • Lin, DAR, Carroll, RHJ & Mozgov will start
    Jeremy Lin, D'Angelo Russell, DeMarre Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Timofey Mozgov will start against the Pacers on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's the lineup they've used in the preseason, so no surprises here. The Nets were also extremely fast in the preseason, so they may actually be faster than their first-ranked pace last year. Carroll should get minutes at both forward spots, but most fantasy owners can take a wait and see approach. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:42 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 22 w/ 10 assists in loss
    Kyrie Irving scored 22 points in his return to Cleveland on Tuesday, adding 10 assists, four rebounds, three steals and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Irving hit 8-of-17 shots and 2-of-2 from the line, but posted a usage rate of just 21.5. That's likely to go way up with Gordon Hayward (ankle, leg) potentially out for the season, so that's not a concern moving forward. As long as Irving can stay healthy, expect him to flirt with first-round numbers in 9-category leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:28 pm
  • Jayson Tatum plays well in start for Celtics
    Jayson Tatum started at power forward on Tuesday and played 37 minutes, hitting 5-of-11 shots, 1-of-2 3-pointers and 3-of-3 free throws for 14 points, 10 rebounds and three assists.

    Advice: Tatum is starting for Marcus Morris (knee) and could potentially steal the job if things go really well. He's off to a nice start with a double-double and with Gordon Hayward's injury lingering, Tatum might be able to hold value even when Morris is back from his injury. It's not a bad idea to use Tatum, especially in DFS, until we find out what kind of damage the return of Morris will do to him. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:23 pm
  • Lonzo Ball (ankle) practices in full Tuesday
    Lonzo Ball (ankle) practiced without any restrictions on Tuesday.

    Advice: This is the second day in a row that Ball has gone through a full practice, and he's already stated that he'll be good to go for Thursday's season opener against the Clippers. The Lakers have very little depth behind Ball, so the No. 2 overall pick should be receiving hefty minutes to open the season. Feel free to get him active. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:00 pm
  • Allen Crabbe comfortable coming off the bench
    Allen Crabbe said he would prefer to start, but is comfortable coming off the bench.

    Advice: Coach Kenny Atkinson said the Nets starting five is "still to be determined." Crabbe was sidelined at the start of camp due to an ankle injury, and DeMarre Carroll started all five of Brooklyn's preseason contests. "Whether it’s me starting or coming off the bench, it’s not my call. It’s up to the coaches," said Crabbe. "I really haven’t talked to coaches yet about what’s the starting five going to be. Whatever five he starts with is the five he starts with. There’s no complaints." Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:13 am
  • Jayson Tatum to start at forward on Tuesday
    The Celtics will start Kyrie Irving, Gordon Hayward, Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum and Al Horford against Cleveland on Tuesday.

    Advice: With Marcus Morris (knee) sidelined for the first week of the season, Tatum has a chance to prove he's ready to contribute right away as a rookie. After a very impressive showing during summer league, Tatum averaged 8.2 points (on 37.1 percent shooting), 4.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 25.1 minutes during the preseason. He'll likely experience ups and down over his first few games as a pro, but he is a gifted offensive player capable of putting up points. He's worth consideration as an affordable DFS option on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:18 am
  • Lonzo Ball (ankle) says he'll be ready Thurs
    Lonzo Ball (ankle) was a full participant at Monday's practice and said he'll definitely be suiting up for the Lakers' season opener against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: Luke Walton hasn't yet officially cleared Ball for Thursday night, but with him going through a full-contact, 5-on-5 scrimmage, in addition to saying he'll be ready, we'd be quite shocked if he sat out the Lakers' opening night matchup. Ball will be getting all the run he can handle in Los Angeles this season, but efficiency and turnover issues could deflate his value a bit in category-based leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:54 pm
  • Stevens hints Jayson Tatum will start at PF
    Brad Stevens hinted on Sunday that Jayson Tatum will open the year as Boston's starting power forward.

    Advice: Stevens wouldn't officially reveal his opening night starters on Sunday, but he did say he'd likely go with a similar lineup to what he was using during the preseason, which would consist of Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward, Tatum and Al Horford. Additionally, Marcus Morris (knee) will be spending the first week of the season on the sidelines, leaving Tatum as the obvious choice to start at the four. Tatum is worth a dart throw towards the later rounds on draft day. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:43 pm
  • Nance Jr. scores four points
    Larry Nance Jr. scored four points with seven rebounds, two assists and one steal in 21 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

    Advice: He got the start tonight and he may have a big lead for the starting job on opening night with Julius Randle (back spasms) getting hurt tonight. Nance Jr. is a guy who can rack up the steals and he should get a lot of easy buckets, so he's a decent last-round flier. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:16 pm
  • Larry Nance starting at power forward Friday
    Larry Nance Jr. will start at power forward against the Clippers on Friday night.

    Advice: Coach Luke Walton added that there is a position battle for power forward right now and even Kyle Kuzma has a 10 percent chance to win the job next week. Nance's defense is a big plus for the Lakers first unit, and he's improved on his offense this offseason as well. He's a solid last-round flier when the well dries up on popular sleepers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:16 pm
  • Lonzo Ball (ankle) will not play on Friday
    Lonzo Ball (ankle) will not play on Friday against the Clippers.

    Advice: That means we won't see Lonzo until at least the season starts. The good news is that Lonzo has practiced for two days in a row and he's almost certainly being held out tonight as a precaution, but Ball said he was a little sore on Friday. The Lakers have made it no secret they plan to play him big minutes and it helps him that there's little depth behind him, but there are some risks to drafting him at an inflated price because of his buzz. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:18 am
  • Yogi Ferrell scores 11 points in 21 minutes
    Yogi Ferrell scored 11 points with five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Hawks on Thursday.

    Advice: He continues to share the ball-handling duties with Dennis Smith Jr. in the backcourt, but it's possible Ferrell could get another boost if DSJ's ankle injury cost him time. Unlike Seth Curry's leg injury, Smith Jr. didn't look to be hurt too badly and hopefully he's just day-to-day. Ferrell is expected to start regardless and is worth a look as a last-round flier until we get good news on DSJ. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:47 pm
  • Lonzo Ball (ankle) is questionable for Friday
    Lonzo Ball (ankle) is questionable to play against the Clippers on Friday.

    Advice: He went through practice on Thursday and did everything except for scrimmage. Today marks the first time he's been able to go through a practice since he sprained his ankle back on Oct. 2, so that bodes very well for him being ready for the regular-season opener. His fantasy price fluctuates on draft day because a lot of people have Lonzo fever, but he's still worth a look in the middle rounds for his upside in assists. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:51 pm
  • Kyrie Irving not anxious about return to CLE
    Kyrie Irving said he's not anxious about returning to Cleveland for Boston's regular-season opener.

    Advice: "It’s just hoops," Irving said when asked about heading back to Cleveland for the first game of the season. "It’s just hooping. I understand the magnitude… But I know what it is going to entail in terms of marketing, whatever the case may be, to garner up this energy to make people feel a certain type of way. I get all that. It’s part of the game. It’s been a part of the game for a while. But, it’s just two hoops and a basketball." Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:06 am
  • Allen Crabbe makes 1-of-8 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs
    Allen Crabbe shot 1-of-8 from the field on Wednesday, but he made 7-of-7 free throws to finish a blowout loss to Philly with 10 points, three rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Crabbe cooled off tonight after a terrific preseason debut in which he scored 14 points in 11 minutes of action. Some bumps in the road can be expected as he adjusts to his new team, but he's in an ideal spot for fantasy production. Don't sleep on him, whether or not he's penciled in as a starter on opening night. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:55 pm
  • Kyrie Irving piles up 16/10/5 in 27 minutes
    Kyrie Irving was in mid-season form on Wednesday, piling up 16 points, 10 assists, five rebounds, two 3-pointers and one steal, with zero turnovers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Irving already looks extremely comfortable in Boston, and tonight he both scored with ease and found teammates for a variety of open buckets. He's poised to average a new career-high in assists (currently 6.1 per game) and is a tempting PG to target in the 12-15 range on draft day. Follow the link below to watch one of his highlight-reel plays from tonight's game. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:52 pm
  • Jayson Tatum starts again at PF on Wednesday
    Jayson Tatum earned another start on Wednesday and had eight points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: Tatum held his own defensively, which is key, and he only committed one turnover in 23 minutes of action. Brad Stevens has made it clear that he'll give Tatum every opportunity to contribute as a rookie, and he's likely to be a featured player in the second unit. He's a viable flier pick in re-draft leagues if you're tempted by scoring and unknown upside. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:48 pm
  • Jayson Tatum will start on Wednesday
    Jayson Tatum will get another start at power forward against the Hornets on Wednesday.

    Advice: Marcus Morris is expected to play around 12 minutes tonight, as well. The Celtics have trusted Tatum with a handful of power forward minutes, and it wouldn't be a shock if he can take minutes away from Morris. Tatum is a high-upside pick at the end of a standard draft. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:41 pm
  • Lonzo Ball (ankle) doesn't practice Wednesday
    Lonzo Ball (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: He did some on-court work on work on Tuesday and also did some stuff with assistant coach Miles Simon before practice. That means he should be able to play in the regular season, but the Lakers may choose to hold him out over the weekend. Expect another update on Ball in the next day or so, but this injury should't alter his fantasy stock too much. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:02 pm
