  • Jeff Green (back) ruled out Friday vs. DET
    Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play Friday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: This is the second straight game Green has missed due to low back pain. Mario Hezonja is expected to soak up the majority of minutes left behind by Green. Hezonja played 23 minutes on Wednesday, scoring eight points and grabbing seven rebounds. Rotoworld.com 37 minutes ago
  • Glenn Robinson III (calf) ruled out Friday
    Glenn Robinson III (left calf strain) has been ruled out for Friday against the Nuggets.

    Advice: The team only called it soreness on Thursday, so this new diagnosis for a strain is worse. There is no additional info on the severity or if GR3 needed an MRI, but Robinson was losing playing time anyway. With him out, there should be a few extra minutes going to C.J. Miles, Thaddeus Young and maybe Lavoy Allen. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:46 pm
  • Archie Goodwin gets another 10 day
    The Nets will sign Archie Goodwin to a second 10-day deal.

    Advice: He's played in each of the last three games, averaging 8.7 points in 13.3 minutes. Goodwin may seem some added run if the Nets rest more players, but he's still not a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:30 pm
  • Shelvin Mack questionable for Saturday
    Shelvin Mack (ankle) is questionable to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: The Jazz won't need Mack anyway with George Hill somewhat healthy against Chris Paul. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:29 pm
    Injured
     
  • Omer Asik unlikely to play this season
    Omer Asik (illness) is unlikely to play again this season.

    Advice: He hasn't played since the All-Star Game due to a bacterial infection and coach Alvin Gentry didn't sound very optimistic about Asik coming back. "He went through a tough time trying to see what was wrong with him," Gentry said. "I think it’s a slim chance that he’ll be back playing this year." Rotoworld.com Today, 11:17 am
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) still probable Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee tendinitis) was a full participant in shootaround on Friday and remains listed as probable for Friday's game vs. Minnesota.

    Advice: This serves as confirmation that Ingram is ready to roll on Friday. He's been putting up solid numbers of late. Ingram has scored in double figures in each of the Lakers last nine games. He is averaging 15.2 points (on 52.8 percent shooting), 4.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists during this current stretch. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:03 am
  • Ronnie Price (leg) doubtful for Friday night
    Ronnie Price (left lower leg contusion) is listed as questionable but is not expected to play Friday night vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: No Price means Tyler Ulis will once again have to play nearly the entire game. Despite the fact that the Suns got blown out by 28 points Thursday in Brooklyn, Ulis still logged 45 minutes. Over his last five contests, Ulis is averaging 13.6 points, 10.0 assists, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 steals in a whopping 41.8 minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:37 am
  • T.J. Warren (foot) will not play Friday night
    T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) is listed as questionable but is not expected to play Friday night vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: This will be the second straight game Warren has missed. It has to sting Warren's fantasy owners because, prior to the injury, he was putting up phenomenal numbers. Warren was averaging 17.3 points on 58.3 percent shooting and 7.6 rebounds in the Suns first 13 games following the All-Star break. Derrick Jones Jr. (right wrist) has also been ruled for Friday, which means the Suns will have only eight active players available. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:12 am
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) ruled out Friday
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: This will be the sixth consecutive game Kilpatrick has missed. He should be left on waivers in all leagues. K.J. McDaniels has been the biggest beneficiary of late. McDaniels has played over 20 minutes in each of Brooklyn's last two games and posted season-highs in both points (16) and rebounds (8) Thursday night in a blowout victory over the Suns. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:58 am
  • Cristiano Felicio (back) will not play Friday
    Cristiano Felicio (bruised tailbone) will not play Friday vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: This will be the second straight game Felicio has missed after landing awkwardly on his back in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors. Fortunately for the Bulls, Robin Lopez returns from suspension on Friday. RoLo will be backed up by Joffrey Lauvergne. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:07 am
  • Jeff Green (back spasms) a GTD for Friday
    Coach Frank Vogel said that Jeff Green (back spasms) will be a game-time decision on Friday night vs. Detroit.

    Advice: Green did not play on Wednesday due to the back issue. With Green sidelined, Mario Hezonja logged 23 minutes, finishing with eight points and seven rebounds. Mario would likely see 20-plus minutes again on Friday if Green is unable to play. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:23 am
  • 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. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:13 am
  • Alan Williams (illness) plays 16 mins vs Nets
    Alan Williams (illness) returned to action on Thursday, scoring four points and grabbing seven rebounds in 16 minutes.

    Advice: Williams was sidelined on Tuesday, but it turned out to be just a one-game absence. Thursday was the first time he had failed to score in double figures since the All-Star break. He had been averaging 13.3 points and 10.3 boards in his previous 12 contests. Williams will likely log his typical 20-plus minutes of action on Friday in Boston. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:02 am
  • Alan Williams returned to action on Thursday March 23. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:08 am
  • Jusuf Nurkic puts up another double-double
    Jusuf Nurkic scored 16 points with 10 rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 27 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

    Advice: Consistent Nurk Alerts? He now has a double-double in three straight games for the longest such streak of his career. Nurkic also has scored in double digits for five straight, which is also a career best. He still can't hit his free throws, but he boasts fantastic averages over his last five: 15.2 points, 11.0 boards, 2.6 assists, 2.2 blocks and 1.6 steals. Coach Terry Stotts has turned him into a beast and it helps to play with such a great backcourt. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:58 pm
  • Noah Vonleh grabs 12 boards
    Noah Vonleh matched his career-high 12 rebounds against the Knicks on Thursday, adding four points, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He's actually making an impact on the stat sheet and for coach Terry Stotts. The problem is Stotts just has another weapon to use and make his rotation even more complicated. Most fantasy owners will just want to avoid this situation. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Courtney Lee scores 16 points vs. Blazers
    Courtney Lee scored 16 points with one rebound, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in 41 minutes against the Blazers on Thursday.

    Advice: The Knicks are probably going to start rolling the tank, which could mean more shots for Lee going forward. On the other hand, it's possible he gets some time off to get a look at some of their other younger players. Lee is still worth owning for now and he hasn't been rested yet this season -- he's had two different injury stints. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Ronnie Price is out again
    Ronnie Price (leg) will not play on Thursday against the Nets.

    Advice: Tyler Ulis will continue to get major minutes as the starter. Leandro Barbosa should get some minutes behind Ulis, as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:19 pm
  • T.J. Warren will not play; Jones Jr. starting
    T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) will not play against the Nets on Thursday and Derrick Jones Jr. will start.

    Advice: Warren's foot injury will keep him out of action for the first time in 2017. This is not the same foot injury that Warren fractured last year, so hopefully it's just a day-to-day thing. Jones Jr. should get a decent amount of run in the first unit while Jarell Eddie should see some added run. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:13 pm
  • T.J. Warren unlikely to play on Thursday
    T.J. Warren (foot) is closer to doubtful for Thursday against the Nets.

    Advice: Coach Earl Watson wouldn't say for sure on if Warren could give it a go. If not, the Suns would likely give more minutes to Jarell Eddie and Derrick Jones Jr. There should be another update shortly.Daily Slant: While Warren's absence may not lead to a bench player seeing a huge uptick in fantasy value, it certainly raises the floor/ceiling of Devin Booker, who sees a 6.1% usage spike with Warren, Chandler, Bledsoe, Knight and Bender off the floor. Both Booker and Tyler Ulis should approach the 40 minute mark against one of the NBA's weakest defenses, and considering the game should stay close, both players are elite targets. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:16 pm
  • Glenn Robinson III has a sore calf
    Glenn Robinson III (sore left calf) is questionable for Friday against the Nuggets.

    Advice: Perhaps this is why he only played six minutes on Wednesday. The Pacers also did tweak their rotation and made Rodney Stuckey a DNP-CD in the loss. If Robinson III can't go, there should be a few extra minutes for Monta Ellis and C.J. Miles. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:57 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) probable Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee tendinitis) is probable to play against the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: He did not finish practice due to right patella tendinitis. Ingram had some tendinitis in his right knee back in October, but the rookie has been fairly healthy besides that. In other news, he's starting to be more involved in the offense lately, averaging 16.4 points per game over his last five. He's worth a look in standard leagues while he's playing well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:34 pm
  • T.J. Warren (foot) listed as questionable
    T.J. Warren is listed as questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Nets with a left foot contusion.

    Advice: Game notes aren't very reliable, but given how cautious the Suns are being with injuries these days, Warren's owners will want to be on the lookout for an update. If he's unable to give it a go, we should see more of Derrick Jones Jr., Jared Dudley and Jarell Eddie. None of those players are pickups, though. Warren is putting up averages of 16.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.1 blocks and 0.9 steals since the break. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:30 am
  • Alan Williams (illness) expects to play
    Alan Williams (illness) is expecting to play on Thursday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Williams was on the active list on Tuesday vs. the Heat, but left the team right before tip-off because he was dealing with some food poisoning. If he looks good during pre-game warmups, expect him to be out there tonight. If not, Alex Len will have a heavy workload at center and Marquese Chriss will have to play some five as well. Through 10 games in March, Williams is averaging a double-double with 13.1 points, 10.5 rebounds and 1.2 blocks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:07 am
  • Goodwin likely to get second 10-day deal
    Nets coach Kenny Atkinson hinted that Archie Goodwin will likely get a second 10-day contract.

    Advice: "We’ve got to discuss it as an organization but I would say it’s trending very positive," Atkinson said. "And that’s not just from a basketball standpoint but from a culture standpoint. From the first day I met him, how he presents himself every day." He scored 10 points with five rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 18 minutes vs. the Pistons on Tuesday, but with Jeremy Lin (ankle) expected back, Goodwin will likely take a hit -- Atkinson said he's looking at Goodwin as a point guard. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:44 am
  • GR3 gets just six minutes
    Glenn Robinson III did not score in six minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's his first scoreless game since the break and the first time he's been in single-digit minutes all month. With the Pacers now healthy for the most part, Robinson III may be falling all the way out of the rotation. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:35 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. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:44 pm
  • Cris Felicio ruled out; Lauvergne starting
    Cristiano Felicio (back) will not play against the Pistons on Wednesday and Joffrey Lauvergne will get the start.

    Advice: The Bulls are running out of centers for today with Robin Lopez also suspended. Felicio would've been in a great spot, but now the Bulls will likely mix in some Bobby Portis at the five. That should also open up some minutes for Nikola Mirotic. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:25 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick out again for Thursday
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play against the Suns on Thursday.

    Advice: This will be his fifth game out of the lineup. The Nets have taken a look at K.J. McDaniels lately, giving him 21 minutes on Tuesday with 11 points. Archie Goodwin has also got some run, but these two are tough to own in most leagues. Caris LeVert should also benefit. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:00 pm
  • Shelvin Mack (ankle) ruled out Wednesday
    Shelvin Mack (left ankle sprain) will not play Wednesday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Mack has been sidelined for over five weeks. He should be left on waivers in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:46 am
    Injured
     
  • Jeff Green (back) will not play Wednesday
    Coach Frank Vogel said that Jeff Green (back spasms) has been ruled out of Wednesday night's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: This will be just the third game Green has missed all season. However, he has apparently played through back spasms intermittently. Green had been averaging 17.5 minutes per game off the Magic's bench in March. Mario Hezonja will likely soak up the majority of the extra minutes available on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:14 am
  • Brandon Ingram scores 21 points in 40 minutes
    Brandon Ingram scored 21 points in 40 minutes in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: This was his second game of the season with 20+ points and he finished one point shy of his career high. He added five rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples, and it looks like he's going to make some noise in the final few weeks of the season. Over the last five games, he's averaging 16.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 triples on 53.0 percent shooting. However, he's still struggling from the free throw line, hitting just 3-of-8 FTAs in this one. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:51 pm
  • Alert: Jusuf Nurkic double-doubles in loss
    Jusuf Nurkic hit 5-of-9 shots on his way to 11 points, 14 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Tuesday's loss to the Bucks.

    Advice: Nurkic wasn't incredible tonight, but we doubt anyone is actually complaining about this game. He's been a blast to own for weeks now and should be ready to finish up strong. That makes back-to-back double-doubles for Nurkic and his two-point game a week ago is now a distant memory, as he's averaging 15 points, 11 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.8 blocks on 46 percent shooting over his last five. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:41 pm
  • Cristiano Felicio suffers hard fall in loss
    Cristiano Felicio took a hard fall in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors and never returned to the game.

    Advice: Felicio landed hard on his back and hobbled to the locker room, but he joined his teammates on the bench shortly after. It looked like he was available to return, but we'll put him on the injury report to be safe. With Robin Lopez likely looking at a suspension, Felicio could be a low-end source of rebounds if he's able to give it a go on Wednesday vs. the Pistons. He finished with five points, two rebounds and one steal in 16 minutes. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:56 pm
  • Alan Williams (illness) will not play Tuesday
    Alan Williams (illness) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Wow. He's not even with the team, but the Suns didn't even bother to mention this -- this report came as the first quarter was wrapping up. With Williams out, Alex Len gets a nice boost and Marquese Chriss will have to play more center. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:21 pm
  • Coach Atkinson praises Goodwin and McDaniels
    Kenny Atkinson praised Archie Goodwin and KJ McDaniels on Tuesday and said they would "get some opportunities" in Tuesday's contest vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: With Jeremy Lin (ankle) ruled out, Spencer Dinwiddie will draw the start but Goodwin will likely see extra minutes off the Nets bench. Archie made his Nets debut on Sunday and played 14 minutes after Lin had to leave the game due to the ankle issue. Goodwin could see 15-plus minutes on Tuesday. However, with Dinwiddie starting and playing the lion's share of minutes, Goodwin still belongs on waivers. McDaniels is averaging 17.5 mpg and that could continue to rise. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:08 pm
  • Ronnie Price (leg) downgraded to doubtful
    Ronnie Price (leg contusion) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. Miami.

    Advice: Price did not play on Sunday and was initially listed as questionable on Monday, so this represents a downgrade. Assuming Price is unavailable, the Suns will once again be forced to lean heavily on Tyler Ulis, the only healthy point guard on the roster. Ulis played 43 minutes on Sunday and will likely be asked to log 40-plus minutes on Tuesday as well. As a result, Ulis is a strong DFS option. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:36 am
  • Courtney Lee has off shooting night
    Courtney Lee scored just two points, missing five of his six field goal attempts, in Monday's 114-105 loss against the Clippers.

    Advice: That's two poor outings over the past three games. Ron Baker picked up the slack in Monday's loss, but it's hard to see him eating into the veteran Lee's minutes just yet. Despite the rough patch recently he has been a solid source of 3-pointers and rebounds for most fantasy owners while also chipping in with a steal or two in rotisserie formats. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:16 pm
  • Ronnie Price (leg) questionable for Tuesday
    Ronnie Price (leg) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's matchup with Miami.

    Advice: If Price can't give it a go on Tuesday night, Tyler Ulis will get all the run he can possibly handle as the only healthy point guard in Phoenix. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:59 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick, Harris out Tuesday vs. DET
    Sean Kilpatrick (left hamstring) and Joe Harris (shoulder) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: With both these guys set to spend Tuesday night on the sidelines, and Jeremy Lin (ankle) looking unlikely, Brook Lopez will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense, and there will be more minutes available for guys like Caris LeVert and K.J. McDaniels. LeVert could be someone to consider using as a streamer on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:36 pm
  • Shelvin Mack (ankle) ruled out Monday
    Shelvin Mack (ankle) will not play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Feb. 11 and isn't in the rotation anyways. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:06 am
    Injured
     
  • Brandon Ingram has 18 pts w/ supporting stats
    Brandon Ingram scored 18 points on 8-of-15 shooting during Sunday's tough home loss, adding six rebounds, one assist, one block, and just one turnover in 40 minutes.

    Advice: Ingram is finally making some noise for fantasy purposes. He's shooting 39.0 percent on the season, but in an expanded role in March he's averaged 12.3 points on 50.6 percent shooting, 0.8 threes, 3.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.8 blocks. The supporting stats are tolerable, but he's also committing 2.6 turnovers while making under half of his free throw attempts. Plan accordingly. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:36 pm
  • Jusuf Nurkic notches 21 & 12 in win vs. Heat
    Jusuf Nurkic had another great game on Sunday with 21 points, 12 rebounds and three blocks in 29 minutes, making 9-of-15 field goals and 3-of-8 free throws.

    Advice: Owners can live with the poor FT shooting, and tonight's line was even more impressive because it came against Hassan Whiteside. The two got heated early, but Nurkic had the last laugh. If you were lucky enough to have him when he was dealt to Portland, you know the drill -- lock him into your lineups and enjoy the show. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:43 pm
  • Noah Vonleh hits 10+ pts in 3rd straight game
    Noah Vonleh logged 29 minutes during Sunday's impressive road win, chipping in 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: Vonleh has now scored double-digit points in three straight games, something he's never done before in his NBA career. The low-usage forward is getting it done thanks to extreme efficiency, connecting on 72.2 percent of his shot attempts during his double-digit streak. There are higher-upside guys on the vast majority of waiver wires. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:42 pm
  • Ronnie Price out for Sunday
    Ronnie Price (leg) is out for Sunday against the Pistons.

    Advice: Get ready for some new lineup combinations and a lot of Tyler Ulis today. Price did play 20 minutes in the last game, so losing him today does matter for coach Earl Watson. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:21 pm
  • Ronnie Price is a GTD
    Ronnie Price (leg) is a game-time call for Sunday against the Pistons.

    Advice: He is doubtful to play, but the Suns will need all the help they can get. If Price can't go, Tyler Ulis might have to play the entire game or the Suns will have to get a look at a new ball-handler. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:11 pm
  • Archie Goodwin gets 14 minutes
    Archie Goodwin played 14 minutes with four points, two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer against the Mavs on Sunday.

    Advice: Jeremy Lin (ankle) got hurt and Spencer Dinwiddie got some early fouls, so we saw Goodwin for the first time as a Net. The Nets may get another look at him, but he's still not close to seeing consistent minutes. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:45 am
  • Ronnie Price is doubtful for Sunday
    Ronnie Price (leg contusion) is doubtful for Sunday against the Pistons.

    Advice: It looks like Tyler Ulis is not going to have a backup tonight, so he should be very, very busy. Price played 20 minutes and even played some combo guard, so he's been a noteworthy piece in the rotation. We might see some Jarell Eddie in his Suns debut while T.J. Warren may be handing the ball a ton. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:56 am
  • Suns happy with T.J. Warren's progress
    Suns GM Ryan McDonough said the team is thrilled with T.J. Warren's progress.

    Advice: "His field-goal percentage from the All-Star break is off the charts," McDonough said. "He’s improved his rebounding, especially defensively, which is what we need with [Tyson Chandler] out and [Earl Watson] playing a smaller lineup." Since the P.J. Tucker trade, Warren is averaging 17.5 points, 7.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 blocks, returning top-20 value in standard leagues. "Everybody knows I can score, so I just want to do all the other things that keep me on the floor," Warren said. After Sunday's game vs. Detroit, the Suns play four games in each of the next two weeks. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:54 am
  • Jusuf Nurkic scores 12 in full stat line
    Jusuf Nurkic filled it up against the Hawks on Saturday, scoring 12 points with nine rebounds, six assists, five blocks and two steals in 32 minutes.

    Advice: That's his sixth game of his career with at least five blocks and three of those have come in his 13 games with the Blazers. Besides the eye-popping stats, Nurkic's screening and passing has been huge and it's a big reason why the Blazers guards aren't missing Mason Plumlee whatsoever. Expect several Nurk Alerts the rest of the season as he continues to flirt with early-round value. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:31 pm
  • Noah Vonleh posts a double-double
    Noah Vonleh scored 10 points with 11 rebounds and five turnovers in 27 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Advice: He may be playing his best ball of the season and turned in his first double-double of his third-year campaign. Vonleh is still just 21 and he did slide in the 2014 draft because he was raw, so maybe better days are ahead. That said, there's very little reason to add him in fantasy unless you're streaming on a light night. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:21 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) out again Sunday
    Sean Kilpatrick (strained left hamstring) will not play against the Mavs on Sunday.

    Advice: The Nets continue to rule him out early and it's possible he's out for several games given how careful the Nets are. He should be dropped in most fantasy leagues. Meanwhile, Caris LeVert is trending up and played both ends of a back-to-back set, so he's a decent pickup right now. K.J. McDaniels is also getting minutes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:02 pm
  • Jeff Green scores just two points
    Jeff Green made 1-of-9 from the field for two points with eight rebounds, one assist and one turnover against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: This is totally unacceptable on St. Patrick's Day. Anyway, Green just doesn't have fantasy value when the Magic are healthy up front. He doesn't even have much when players are out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:55 pm
  • T.J. Warren scores 26 points in 37 minutes
    T.J. Warren turned in a gem during a 109-103 loss to the Magic on Friday, scoring 26 points with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

    Advice: He made all 10 from the line and 8-of-13 from the field. The Suns are suddenly in dire straits for offense with Eric Bledsoe out for the year and Devin Booker a little banged up. Warren is coming off a 24-point game when Bledsoe didn't play on Wednesday, so clearly his fantasy arrow is pointing way up. He should be owned everywhere. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:53 pm
  • Big Sauce only gets 12 points
    Alan Williams scored 12 points with seven rebounds and two assists in just 16 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: Alex Len actually showed up in this game and Big Sauce was in foul trouble, so that explains the low minutes. Williams' fantasy owners shouldn't worry here and can plan on a better game against Andre Drummond and company on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:49 pm
  • Ronnie Price gets 20 minutes
    Ronnie Price scored one point with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: He should get minutes because he's really the only backup point guard. You're obviously not going to add Price almost anywhere while Tyler Ulis is healthy. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:40 pm
  • Shelvin Mack (ankle) ruled out Saturday
    Shelvin Mack (ankle) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Mack has not played since February 11th. He should be left on waivers in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:17 pm
    Injured
     
  • Sean Kilpatrick (left hamstring) out Friday
    Sean Kilpatrick (strained left hamstring) will not play against the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: He suffered the injury on Tuesday night and will miss his second straight game. The Nets said they wanted to get a look at K.J. McDaniels on Thursday, and he came through with nine points in 18 minutes. McDaniels is probably going to be looking at around 20 minutes tonight while Caris LeVert could also benefit. Although, be careful of LeVert being on a back-to-back and having limited minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:21 am
  • Archie Goodwin won't debut Thursday
    Archie Goodwin won't make his debut vs. the Knicks on Thursday.

    Advice: Goodwin signed his 10-day deal with the Nets on Wednesday and did go through a full practice, but coach Kenny Atkinson said he won't play until Friday or Sunday. "He’s got to get his feet under him and hopefully in this 10-day period," Atkinson said. "Probably right, not the first game. Get a few practices under his belt we can throw him in against the Celtics or the Mavs and see where he is." If he impresses and earns a long-term deal, Goodwin could be interesting later in the season if the Nets start shutting veterans down. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:46 am
  • Shelvin Mack (ankle) ruled out Thursday
    Shelvin Mack (ankle) is listed as out on Thursday vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Mack is out of the rotation anyways, so this doesn't have any impact for fantasy owners. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:10 am

  • Ty Lawson returns to action
    Ty Lawson returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday with 11 points, three rebounds, six assists and four turnovers in 26 minutes against the Suns.

    Advice: After Lawson rested on Monday, it was Darren Collison's turn tonight. Lawson is likely going to get multiple rest days going forward, so he's just going to be too annoying to own in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:36 pm
  • Alan Williams drops another double-double
    Alan Williams scored 14 points with 11 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 31 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Another night, another double-double. Williams has a double-double in seven of his eight March games with consistent playing time in each. Alex Len isn't taking minutes from him and Tyson Chandler is likely done for the year, so keep plugging in Big Sauce as a possible mid-round guy going forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:11 pm
  • T.J. Warren scores 24 points in loss
    T.J. Warren scored 24 points with nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 41 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: He likely has some added shots coming his way. Warren is actually more efficient when he's not next to Eric Bledsoe to go with the 0.9 usage rate bump. Warren is going to play huge minutes and is part of the Suns' future for 2020 and beyond, so expect him to have a strong finish and not be shut down. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:04 pm
  • Jusuf Nurkic posts 16 & 9 w/ four steals
    Jusuf Nurkic bounced back vs. the Spurs on Wednesday, scoring 16 points with nine rebounds, three assists, four steals and one block in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Nurk started ice cold from the field but he came through when it mattered most tonight. It wasn't an ideal line, with five turnovers and poor shooting (7-of-18 FGs, 2-of-5 FTs), but owners will happily take it after Tuesday's hollow two-point performance. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:46 pm
  • Noah Vonleh logs season-high 26 minutes Wed
    Noah Vonleh played a season-high 26 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with 12 points, six rebounds and three assists.

    Advice: Vonleh was three minutes below his career-high for playing time, and it's easy to see why coach Terry Stotts left him on the court -- he played solid defense and made the most of every offensive opportunity, making 4-of-4 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs. He's averaging below 19 minutes per game since the break, however, with a meager 12.9 usage rate, so tonight's game doesn't mean much in the scheme of things. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:44 pm
  • Brandon Ingram scores 18 points
    Brandon Ingram scored 18 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's starting to string games together with six straight in double-figure scoring, which started after a zero-point game on Mar. 3. He's also seen an increase in assists and defensive stats over his last five, averaging 14.2 points, 4.0 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.6 treys on 54.5 percent from the field. Ingram likely won't be a difference maker, but he's trending up as a pickup and is locked in for big minutes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:28 pm
  • Shelvin Mack (ankle) still out for Utah
    Shelvin Mack (sprained left ankle) was inactive again on Wednesday.

    Advice: Mack hasn't played in over a month and he might not be in the rotation even once he's fully healthy. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:25 pm
    Injured
     
  • Omer Asik (illness) gets DNP-CD vs. Miami
    Omer Asik (illness) did not play vs. Miami on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Pelicans have no use for Asik in the rotation with both Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins healthy. They're counting the days until his contract expires, but they still owe him a guaranteed $33.8 million through the 2019-20 season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:45 pm
  • Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) out for Thursday
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) is out for Thursday night against the Knicks.

    Advice: He suffered the injury on Tuesday and did not return. The Nets are going to be thin on the wings with Joe Harris (shoulder) also out, so Caris LeVert may play minutes in the upper 30s after a well-rounded 16-point line on Tuesday. He's worth a look while Randy Foye also benefits. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:59 pm
  • Report: BK to ink Goodwin to 10-day contract
    The Nets will reportedly sign Archie Goodwin to a 10-day deal on Wednesday.

    Advice: With Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring), Joe Harris (concussion) banged up, and Jeremy Lin's (ankle) status for Thursday's game in New York up in the air, Goodwin may be able to pick up some minutes in the Nets rotation. However, it's unlikely he'll be on the floor enough to matter in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:21 am
  • Alert: Nurkic struggles in ugly loss
    Jusuf Nurkic hit just 1-of-8 shots for two points, eight rebounds, four turnovers and nothing else in Tuesday's 100-77 loss to the Pelicans.

    Advice: While Nurkic has basically been a beast ever since landing in Portland, he has struggled in two of his last three games. Those two bad games featured 3-of-16 shooting totals, along with nine points and 15 rebounds. But he also had a double-double in between the two bad games and it was less than a week ago that he went off for 28 points, 20 rebounds, eight assists, two steals and six blocks. He'll break out of his funk soon. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:38 pm
  • Kilpatrick (hamstring) doubtful to return
    Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) is doubtful to return to Tuesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: The Nets are calling it a "sore left hamstring," but we all know how cautious the Nets have been with injuries this season. Assuming he doesn't return, he will finish with two points, one assist and one rebound in seven minutes. Isaiah Whitehead has been playing off the ball more these days, so he should benefit along with Caris LeVert if SKP misses more time. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:33 pm
