  • Willy Hernangomez will start again Thursday
    Willy Hernangomez will start at center on Thursday vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Joakim Noah tweaked his hamstring right before the break and will probably miss extended time. The rookie looks like a great pickup and is averaging 11.7 points, 11.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 block and 1.7 steals in three previous starts this season. His rest-of-season outlook is very promising, especially if the Knicks are sellers at the deadline. Rotoworld.com 38 minutes ago
  • Magic wants more minutes for Ivica Zubac
    Magic Johnson said he'd like to see Ivica Zubac get more minutes during the final few months of the NBA season.

    Advice: "I think he has really established himself as a quality backup center and I would like to see him get even more minutes," said Johnson. Head coach Luke Walton has already hinted that he'll make a better effort to give Zubac some extended run as the NBA season comes to a close, so he makes for a fine stash for anyone in need of a big that can really rack up the swats.

  • Frank Kaminsky scores 32 points
    Frank Kaminsky scored 32 points in the Rising Stars Challenge on Friday, adding three rebounds, two assists and eight 3-pointers.

    Advice: He kept the USA in it with a late 3-point barrage, needing only 12 attempts from deep total. Kaminsky now has coach Steve Clifford's confidence as a backup five man, so he may be able to get minutes at two positions even when Cody Zeller (quad) comes back. Kaminsky has posted eighth-round value in his last 10 games, so he's a possible asset in standard leagues until he cools off. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:21 pm
  • Jeff Ayres leaves D-League for Japan
    Jeff Ayres has left the Lakers D-League affiliate and signed with Toyota Alvark in Japan.

    Advice: Ayres played with the Clippers last season. He started this season in Russia with CSKA Moscow before returning to NBA D-League. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:40 am

  • Kendrick Perkins to attempt a comeback
    Kendrick Perkins is attempting an NBA comeback and hopes to sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

    Advice: Perkins last played for the Pelicans in April of 2016 but has been working out in hopes of getting one last cup of coffee in the league. "I’m still trying to get back in. I’ve been working two-a-days over the last couple of months. Just been going hard... Just trying to get back in and see what it do. One more push." Even if Perkins were to get picked up by OKC or another team, he would have no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:20 am

  • Bobby Portis is back? Maybe?
    Bobby Portis scored a season-high 19 points with eight rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.

    Advice: Free Bobby Portis? Nikola Mirotic (back) was expected to play in this game, but it looks like coach Fred Hoiberg wanted to give the second-year Portis a chance after some energetic effort this week. He's still a work in progress, but Portis playing well does put him on the radar in deep leagues. After all, it's not like Mirotic has played well this season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:41 pm
  • Kelly Olynyk scores 17 points vs. Bulls
    Kelly Olynyk scored 17 points with seven rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

    Advice: He's tearing it up again over his last five, averaging 16.0 points, 7.0 boards, 2.6 assists, 0.6 steals and 2.2 treys on 64.6 percent from the field in 27.4 minutes per game. We've seen these Olynyk stretches before and KO is only putting up value around 125 in standard leagues over his last 15, so he's only a borderline add in 12-team formats, especially with Avery Bradley (Achilles) coming back soon. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:35 pm
  • Kevin Seraphin is decent vs. old team
    Kevin Seraphin scored nine points with five rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 25 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

    Advice: Thanks to injuries to Thaddeus Young (wrist) and Lavoy Allen (knee), Seraphin had a nice little chance to show he was worth his free agent deal. In his last five games with this opportunity, he averaged 9.4 points, 3.8 boards, 0.8 assists and 0.8 blocks. With a week off to get healthy, he'll likely be losing a lot of playing time after the break. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:27 pm
  • Lavoy Allen will not play on Thursday night
    Lavoy Allen (knee) will not play on Thursday night against the Wizards.

    Advice: That means Kevin Seraphin gets another start and a revenge game vs. his old team. Allen was a game-time call, so he should be ready after the break. Although, Thaddeus Young (wrist) should also be back, which would take away most of Allen's minutes. If you want to stream someone, give Seraphin, C.J. Miles or Glenn Robinson III a look. Daily Slant: With Allen ruled out, Kevin Seraphin now becomes one of the more intriguing punt plays of the night, although that's not saying much given the two-game slate. We can likely pencil him in for around 25 minutes of court time, and given how thin PF is - Markieff Morris is the only "strong" option - Seraphin is viable in any format. His floor remains extremely low and Taj Gibson is the preferred cash game target, but Seraphin remains one of the few viable targets at the position. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:04 pm

  • Lavoy Allen (knee) will be a game-time call
    Lavoy Allen (knee) will be a game-time decision to face the Wizards on Thursday.

    Advice: He was listed a doubtful and was a game-time decision on Wednesday, but Allen was ruled out fairly quickly compared to normal GTDs. If he is active, he will be coming off the bench with Kevin Seraphin sticking in the starting lineup. Seraphin had a nice revenge game against the Wizards on Friday with a 16-point effort, so he might be a decent option on a two-game night. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:22 pm

  • Report: Tiago Splitter is a trade candidate
    Tiago Splitter could be moved prior to the Feb. 23 deadline according to Hawks beat writer Chris Vivlamore.

    Advice: Splitter has yet to play this season due to injuries, but his expiring contract could be attractive to other teams. The Hawks are expected to be buyers at the deadline and Splitter might be the most likely to be traded in addition to Thabo Sefolosha. It's still unclear when Splitter will be cleared to play and there's no reason to stash him in almost any format. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:25 am

  • Lavoy Allen (knee) questionable Thursday
    Lavoy Allen (knee) is questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: Thaddeus Young (left wrist) is out again, so Kevin Seraphin will likely be relevant for at least one more game if Allen can't go -- Seraphin has played 25+ minutes in three out of his last four games. To be clear, there's very little upside here and Young should be ready after the break. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:44 am

  • JaVale McGee looks good again vs. Kings
    JaVale McGee had another fine game on Wednesday with eight points, 10 rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes, making 4-of-5 shots in an easy win vs. Sacramento.

    Advice: Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) and David West (thumb) were out again, which has been the case throughout McGee's run as a starter. Both veterans are expected to return soon after the break, according to coach Steve Kerr, so the clock is ticking for JaVale's already shaky value. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:22 pm
  • Marreese Speights doesn't make a trey
    Marreese Speights scored eight points with one assist in 12 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Despite his four attempts from beyond the arc, Mo Buckets saw his 28-game streak with at least one 3-pointer get snapped during this win. Speights' playing time has dropped since Blake Griffin came back, which obviously hurts his fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:22 pm
  • Kosta Koufos plays just 11 minutes Wednesday
    Kosta Koufos started vs. the Warriors on Wednesday but had only one point, two rebounds, one block and four personal fouls in 11 minutes.

    Advice: Koufos was similarly quiet in his last game vs. the Warriors -- it's not a good matchup for him, and tonight was a perfect storm with both foul trouble and a blowout conspiring against him. Willie Cauley-Stein is gaining traction and there's no reason to own Koufos in typical leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:19 pm
  • Willy Hernangomez chips in across the board
    Willy Hernangomez started Wednesday's game and racked up eight points on 3-of-6 shooting, 10 rebounds, three blocks and two steals in 32 minutes vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Joakim Noah (hamstring) was out again tonight, predictably, and the rookie center used the opportunity to turn in his best fantasy line in four games. He's prone to some disappearing acts, but with the Knicks struggling this season they have every reason to develop him in their final 26 games after the break. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:37 pm
  • Meyers Leonard gets just one board.
    Meyers Leonard scored 10 points with one rebound, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 23 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday.

    Advice: He has not been very good as the starter. Coach Terry Stotts will have the All-Star break to get into the lab and figure out what lineup combos he wants to use next to his star guards. Leonard's lack of rebounding will be a big negative for their style of play, too. There's a good chance Leonard won't be one of them, so leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:30 pm
  • Nurk Alert: Jusuf Nurkic scores 13 in 21 mins
    Jusuf Nurkic had an impressive debut against the Jazz on Wednesday, making all five attempts from the field for 13 points with seven rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Coach Terry Stotts said Nurkic could have an opportunity to start at some point, so this game certainly helped his case. Plus, Meyers Leonard has not looked good at all in the starting lineup. Although, the Blazers have the third-lowest frequency in post-up possessions because of how their guards dominate, and Nurkic is ranked third among players in that department. That could mean he's a better fit in the second unit. Whether he starts or not, Nurkic looks like he's headed for minutes in a good offense. He will have some consistency issues, but it makes sense to add him with his change of scenery possibly giving him some added incentive to play well. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:10 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky scores 27 points in 37 minutes
    Frank Kaminsky picked up 27 points on 11-of-18 shooting on Wednesday, hitting three 3-pointers with five boards, three assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Cody Zeller (quad) and Miles Plumlee (calf) were both out tonight, so Kaminsky was basically playing unchallenged minutes in the middle. Zeller and Plumlee should both return to action after getting extended rest during the break, however, so it's hard to love Frank the Tank's rest-of-season outlook. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:21 pm
  • Kelly Olynyk stays hot w/ 16 pts, 6-of-8 FGs
    Kelly Olynyk stayed hot vs. the Sixers on Wednesday with a 6-of-8 mark from the field, hitting two 3-pointers to finish with 16 points, seven rebounds, three assists and one steal.

    Advice: Olynyk did his damage in just 26 minutes and he's now shooting 64.4 percent in Boston's past five games. His strong play has been enough for value in most leagues, and it's helped the Celtics improve their record to 37-19, keeping them three games ahead of the No. 3 seed Wizards in the East. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:50 pm
  • Kevin Seraphin scores four points in 27 mins
    Kevin Seraphin earned another start on Wednesday and posted four points on 2-of-3 shooting with three rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes of action.

    Advice: Lavoy Allen (knee) was out tonight, as was Thaddeus Young (wrist), so Seraphin was gifted another starting opportunity vs. the Cavs. The Pacers go again on Thursday and they're likely to play it safe with Allen and Thad, so Seraphin should hold mild streamer and DFS appeal for at least one more game. Don't expect much after the break, though. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:17 pm
  • Lavoy Allen ruled out for Wednesday night
    Lavoy Allen (knee) will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: That means it should be Kevin Seraphin starting again and get around 25 minutes. Allen should be considered as questionable for Thursday night. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:17 pm
    Injured
     
  • Lavoy Allen doubtful, is a game-time decision
    Lavoy Allen (knee) is doubtful to play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He will go through warmups and is a game-time decision. Allen did not play in the last game, which allowed Kevin Seraphin to start and play 27 minutes with 12 points, four rebounds and one block. He could be looking at another decent chance, but is only a lukewarm punt on a 14-game night. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:42 pm
    Injured
     
  • Ivica Zubac plays 10 minutes in loss
    Ivica Zubac played just 10 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Kings, finishing scoreless with four rebounds and one turnover.

    Advice: None of the Lakers' bigs had success against DeMarcus Cousins as Boogie finished the game with 40 points. Zubac still has a short leash and coach Luke Walton will pull him on the nights that he doesn't have it going, but hopefully that changes after the All-Star break. He's still a nice stash and his outlook is promising. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:14 pm
  • Jusuf Nurkic will play Wednesday vs. Utah
    Terry Stotts said that Jusuf Nurkic will make his Trail Blazers' debut Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Nurkic said that his skill set wasn't utilized correctly in Denver, and he's eager to play alongside Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. However, Stotts has already said that he'll ease Nurkic into Portland's system by bringing him off the bench, but with guys like Ed Davis and Meyers Leonard as his only real competition for the starting center spot, you figure he's got a good chance of winning that battle. Nurkic is worth taking a flier on in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:00 pm
  • Lavoy Allen (knee) questionable for Wednesday
    Lavoy Allen (sore right knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    Advice: Allen did not play on Monday, which resulted in Kevin Seraphin moving into the starting five with Paul George being forced to log heavy minutes. If Allen is out again on Wednesday, it'll be more of the same. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:54 pm
    Injured
     
  • Willy Hernangomez may continue to start
    Team president Phil Jackson views Willy Hernangomez and Kristaps Porzingis as the "starting frontcourt tandem of the future," according to Mark Berman of the New York Post.

    Advice: Sunday was the first time Hernangomez started alongside Porzingis and Knicks posted arguably their most impressive win of the season, a 94-90 victory over the Spurs. Joakim Noah (hamstring) is expected to miss at least one more game, so Hernangomez will likely start again on Wednesday vs. OKC. If Noah is healthy after the All-Star break, coach Jeff Hornacek will have a tough decision to make. Either way, Hernangomez had done enough to earn consistent minutes going forward. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:08 am
  • Meyers Leonard quiet in start at center
    Meyers Leonard started at center for the Blazers on Monday and hit just 1-of-7 shots for two points, six rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes.

    Advice: He picked up five fouls in short order and may continue to start for a couple more games after the Blazers traded Mason Plumlee for Jusuf Nurkic. But once Nurkic gets acclimated to the Blazers' way of doing things, he's likely to take over the starting duties, so Leonard is not someone you should be going out of your way to pick up. And given how he played tonight, we probably didn't have to tell you that. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:41 pm
  • JaVale McGee goes for 8-7-1 in loss
    JaVale McGee played just 16 minuets and had eight points, seven rebounds and a block in another start at center for the Warriors on Monday.

    Advice: McGee is starting for injured Zaza Pachulia (shoulder), but is averaging just 16.6 minutes per game over his last five. He's also averaging 8.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 0.6 blocks over that stretch, but you'd have to be in a pretty deep, two-center league for him to have fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:34 pm
  • Kelly Olynyk stays hot w/ 15 points vs Dallas
    Kelly Olynyk refused to cool off on Monday, making 6-of-10 shots to finish with 15 points, one 3-pointer, seven rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 29 minutes of action.

    Advice: The backup big man is on fire in February, averaging 13.8 points on 59.6 percent shooting. He's draining 1.4 threes with 6.6 boards, 2.0 dimes, 0.6 steals and 0.6 blocks, numbers that almost demand ownership until he cools off. His role isn't always this robust, and owners should be aware that the Celtics could shake up their frontcourt up via trades in the next 10 days. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:10 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky double-doubles in start
    Frank Kaminsky double-doubled vs. the 76ers on Monday, scoring 12 points with 11 rebounds.

    Advice: Frank the Tank couldn't find his shot and finished 5-of-16 from the field, but logged 38 minutes and added two assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and three blocks (matching a career-high). This was Kaminsky's fourth start at center this season and he averaged 15.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.7 triples in his previous three, so keep rolling him out there with confidence until Cody Zeller (quad) is able to return. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:47 pm
  • Kevin Seraphin holds own in rare start
    Kevin Seraphin started at power forward for the Pacers on Monday and had 12 points, four rebounds and a block on 6-of-9 shooting in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Lavoy Allen (knee) and Thaddeus Young (wrist) are both banged up right now, so Seraphin got the call. He came through with a decent line, but unless Allen and Young are going to miss a lot more time, Seraphin isn't worth a real look in fantasy. But if you used him tonight as a flier, he at least came close to hitting value. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:34 pm
  • Meyers Leonard will start Monday vs. ATL
    Meyers Leonard will start at center on Monday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Jusuf Nurkic hasn't been cleared to play yet, so Leonard will likely get the bulk of the center minutes with Ed Davis backing him up. It's unclear who the Blazers view as their starting center when everyone is available, but keep Leonard on your watch list just in case this move sticks -- coach Terry Stotts said Nurkic will basically have to win the starting job once he's "acclimated." Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:56 pm
  • Jusuf Nurkic will not play Monday vs. ATL
    Jusuf Nurkic (trade) will not play on Monday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: While the trade is official, there is still some paperwork that needs to be processed by the NBA. For now, expect Nurk Alert to make his Blazers debut on Wednesday vs. the Jazz. Meyers Leonard is listed as the starter Monday, but Ed Davis also has a good chance to draw the start. Nurkic will have a chance to win the starting job when he's "acclimated," but coach Terry Stotts said he will initially bring him off the bench. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 5:06 pm
  • Kevin Seraphin will start Monday vs. Spurs
    Kevin Seraphin will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Spurs, with both Thaddeus Young (wrist) and Lavoy Allen (knee) unavailable.

    Advice: The Pacers don't really have any other options to start at the four with both Young and Allen out, so Seraphin gets the call out of necessity, and we could see Al Jefferson get some more minutes tonight. Jeff Teague, Glenn Robinson, Paul George and Myles Turner will join Seraphin in the starting five for Monday's game, with C.J. Miles going to the bench. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 3:42 pm
  • Lavoy Allen (knee) out Monday vs. the Spurs
    Lavoy Allen (sore right knee) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Spurs.

    Advice: Thaddeus Young (wrist) will also be unavailable for Monday's game, and Rakeem Christmas is away from the team on a D-League stint, so we could see Kevin Seraphin move into the starting lineup tonight. Paul George will likely be asked to spend some extra time at the four-spot sans Young and Allen, which should open up some more minutes for Glenn Robinson III and C.J. Miles at the three-spot. Allen should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game in Cleveland.

    RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Even with the Pacers very thin at PF, this is still a situation best left untouched for DFS purposes. Kevin Seraphin isn't a lock to play more than 20-25 minutes by any stretch, as the Pacers will likely try to play small when possible with Paul George shifting up to the four, allowing them to give guys like Glenn Robinson, C.J. Miles or Monta Ellis a little extra run. You can avoid the Pacers on tonight's eleven game slate. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 2:43 pm

  • Meyers Leonard listed as starting center Mon
    Meyers Leonard is being listed as the starting center for Monday's matchup with the Hawks.

    Advice: First things first, this report is coming from the game notes, which are notoriously unreliable; although this move does make some sense. Both Mason Plumlee and Jusuf Nurkic need to clear their physicals before they're cleared to play for their new teams, but that's unlikely to happen in time for Monday's tip. That leaves Ed Davis as the only other real option to start at the five-spot, but Terry Stotts likes to keep him in a reserve role. Leonard is about as hit-or-miss as they come, so he can't be viewed as anything more than a DFS punt play or deep league streamer option.Daily Slant: Damian Lillard owns an elite 40.3% usage rate with both Mason Plumlee and Evan Turner off the floor, so he's clearly the top target on the Portland side tonight. Leonard is a GPP punt play at best against an Atlanta defense that tends to struggle more with perimeter players. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 1:13 pm
  • Jusuf Nurkic unlikely to play Monday
    Jusuf Nurkic is not expected to play on Monday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: The trade is now official, but we likely won't see Nurkic suit up until Wednesday's game vs. the Jazz. "We are pleased to add a young center with Jusuf’s talent and potential to our roster and excited by the prospect of three first round picks in the 2017 NBA Draft," Blazers president of basketball operations Neil Olshey said. Nurkic has a great opportunity in Portland and should be the favorite to start at center, so give him a look if you're targeting points, rebounds and blocks. Just keep in mind that he's prone to turnovers and doesn't have great shooting percentages. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 9:02 am
  • Willy Hernangomez plays 29 minutes as starter
    Willy Hernangomez returned to the Knicks' starting lineup on Sunday with 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting, nine rebounds, three steals and one assist in 29 minutes.

    Advice: The impressive rookie played just nine minutes in New York's previous game, but coach Jeff Hornacek mixed up the rotations again tonight with Kristaps Porzingis sliding back to PF. Willy's owners may have cut him following Friday's disappointing game, but anyone in need of a high-upside center should grab him and hold on tight. Rotoworld.com Feb 12, 4:03 pm
  • Bobby Portis ties season high with 16 points
    Bobby Portis tied his season high on Sunday with 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting, hitting one 3-pointer with six rebounds and zero turnovers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: The Bulls' frontcourt was short-handed tonight and Taj Gibson got into early foul trouble, so this was a perfect storm for Portis. His solid bench performance tonight could earn him a few more minutes in coach Fred Hoiberg's rotation, but it's not enough to recommend him in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Feb 12, 3:13 pm
  • Willy Hernangomez starting, Jennings to bench
    Willy Hernangomez will start Sunday's game vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: This means that Brandon Jennings is headed back to the bench. Hernangomez played only nine minutes on Friday and it's safe to assume that his minutes will spike in a starting role, so don't hesitate to run him out there. Rotoworld.com Feb 12, 11:48 am
  • Nurkic traded to Blazers for Mason Plumlee
    According to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, Jusuf Nurkic has been traded to the Blazers in exchange for Mason Plumlee.

    Advice: The Blazers will also send a 2018 second round pick to Denver, while the Nuggets will send a 2017 first-rounder (via Memphis) to Portland. Nurkic was a major bust in Denver this season, but he has an excellent chance to become the starting center in Portland. If you're OK with sub-par shooting percentages and a high turnover rate, picking up Nurkic makes a lot of sense for his upside in boards and blocks -- Nurkic has per-36 minute averages of 16.0 points, 11.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.6 blocks. The Blazers now have three first-round picks in the 2017 draft. Rotoworld.com Feb 12, 10:19 am
  • Kelly Olynyk scores 19 w/ three triples
    Kelly Olynyk scored 19 points and hit three 3-pointers against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: He picked up five fouls for the second straight game, so he could've had an even bigger night. The Celtics need his floor spacing with Jae Crowder (personal) and Avery Bradley (Achilles) out, so that explains his recent spike in minutes. He finished 8-of-11 from the field with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks, and it's worth noting that the Celtics are one of two teams that play three times in Week 17 with the All-Star break coming up next weekend. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 9:49 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky scores 20 points vs. Clippers
    Frank Kaminsky started at center during a 107-102 loss to the Clippers on Saturday, scoring 20 points with eight rebounds, five assists, one steal, two blocks and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: It looked like Kaminsky was in for a rough day with a foul in the first 20 seconds of this game. However, it was DeAndre Jordan getting into foul trouble with Kaminsky doing a solid job against the All-Star. After this game and the game against Rudy Gobert last Saturday, coach Steve Clifford seems to have some confidence in Frank at the five. Cody Zeller (quad) shouldn't miss more than a couple games, so Kaminsky is only a short-term add. He is trending up and could also get some backup five minutes once Zeller is healthy. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 4:51 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky starting vs. DeAndre Jordan
    Frank Kaminsky will start at center for Cody Zeller (quad) against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: Kaminsky has dealt with some tough matchups at center. He started against Rudy Gobert and Brook Lopez in the last week, so starting against DeAndre Jordan isn't a huge deal. He'll be a viable DFS play today and a stream. Zeller could miss a couple more games, so he's worth a look for his short-term boost. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 12:29 pm
  • Kosta Koufos plays 18 minutes
    Kosta Koufos (finger) played 18 minutes on Friday vs. the Hawks, scoring two points on 1-of-4 shooting with four boards, one assist and two steals.

    Advice: His right ring finger was very swollen on Wednesday, so he's fortunate that he was able to play tonight. To be clear, he doesn't have much fantasy value anyways and Willie Cauley-Stein could be coming for his minutes soon. Rotoworld.com Feb 10, 10:24 pm
  • Kevin Seraphin scores season-high 16 points
    Kevin Seraphin scored a season-high 16 points on Friday vs. the Wizards, adding seven rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 25 minutes.

    Advice: This has fluke written all over it. Seraphin picked up some extra run with Thaddeus Young (wrist) out again and made the most of it by hitting 8-of-10 shots from the field, but he played 13 and 15 minutes in his previous two outings. With Young considered day-to-day, leave Seraphin on the wire unless he does this a couple more times. Rotoworld.com Feb 10, 9:45 pm
  • JaVale McGee scores four in start
    JaVale McGee scored four points with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 18 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday.

    Advice: Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) is not expected to make it back until after the All-Star break, so McGee likely has a few more starts headed his way. He's still not worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Feb 10, 9:18 pm
