  • Noah undergoes arthroscopic knee surgery
    Joakim Noah underwent successful arthroscopic left knee surgery on Monday, and he will be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks.

    Advice: Noah's New York homecoming has been nothing short of disastrous, and it only gets worse when you realize Phil Jackson signed this man to a four-year deal worth $72 million during the offseason. The initial report speculated that Noah could miss the rest of the season after this procedure, so the only positive here is that he'll be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks. Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn will be manning the five spot moving forward, and both those guys look like quality speculative adds, with Hernangomez offering the most upside. Noah can be cut everywhere. Rotoworld.com 43 minutes ago
  • Report: CHI may waive Carter-Williams, Canaan
    The Bulls reportedly are considering waiving Michael Carter-Williams or Isaiah Canaan in order to free up the logjam at the point guard position.

    Advice: Interestingly, the Bulls reportedly will not be waiving Rajon Rondo, as they feel he's a fit with the second unit and they believe they'll be able to use his contract as a trade chip during the offseason. MCW probably won't have much fantasy value regardless of where he winds up, and the same can be said for Canaan. Rotoworld.com 46 minutes ago
  • Knicks sign G Chasson Randle
    The Knicks have officially signed G Chasson Randle.

    Advice: He'll help back up Derrick Rose in New York, but as long as Rose is healthy, Randle will be a non-factor in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:53 am
  • Daniel Ochefu (illness) doesn't practice Mon
    Daniel Ochefu (illness) did not practice on Monday.

    Advice: Ochefu is a non-factor in the Wizards' rotation and can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:38 am
  • Payne practices w/ the starters and reserves
    Fred Hoiberg practiced with the starters and the reserves during Monday's practice.

    Advice: Payne came off the bench in his Chicago debut on Saturday, but it looks like Hoiberg is at least toying with the idea of bringing him into the starting five. However, with three other point guards on the roster, it'll be tough for Payne to get enough minutes to make an impact in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:04 am
  • Paul Zipser (ankle) out Tuesday
    Paul Zipser (ankle) did not practice on Monday and will miss Tuesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: This will be the rookie's seventh game in a row on the shelf. With Zipser out, Denzel Valentine will continue to soak up more minutes on the wing and is averaging 13.0 points, 4.0 3-pointers, 3.5 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.5 steals over his last two games. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:47 am
    Injured
     
  • Michael Carter-Williams misses practice
    Michael Carter-Williams (patellar tendinitis) did not practice on Monday and will miss Tuesday's game vs. Denver.

    Advice: He still has some pain in his knee and doesn't have a timetable to return right now. With MCW expected to miss more time, Cameron Payne will get a chance to earn a larger role and Denzel Valentine will continue to be relevant in deeper leagues. MCW is a drop candidate in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:43 am
  • Al Jefferson (dental pain) doubtful Monday
    Al Jefferson (dental pain) is doubtful for Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Pacers coach Nate McMillan said Big Al is still not feeling well after an emergency root canal last week. McMillan called Jefferson doubtful, while the team is listing him as questionable. If Big Al misses his third straight game, Rakeem Christmas will be looking at minutes in the teens off the bench. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:20 am
  • Rockets sign Isaiah Taylor
    The Rockets have signed Isaiah Taylor to a three-year non-guaranteed deal.

    Advice: He's averaging 21.1 points and 6.1 assists in the D-League while shooting 41.3 percent from beyond the arc, but the Rockets are going to leave him in the D-League for now. There's no fantasy appeal here as long as Patrick Beverley is active. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:13 am
  • Hornets sign Briante Weber to 10-day deal
    The Hornets have signed Briante Weber to a 10-day contract.

    Advice: The Hornets quickly moved to sign Weber after he was released by the Warriors. With Ramon Sessions (knee) on the shelf, Weber will compete for backup PG minutes with Brian Roberts. He's a defensive specialist with career averages of 3.1 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 0.9 steals, so he's not worth picking up in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:37 am
  • Joakim Noah likely to undergo knee surgery
    Joakim Noah is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and miss the rest of the season.

    Advice: Just when we thought his contract couldn't look any worse. This report comes from Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, so it's more than credible. Noah's hamstring is the reason he's been sidelined recently, so the knee issue is coming out of nowhere -- this is the same knee he injured back in 2014, but it's reportedly unrelated. We'll have an update when the Knicks address this, but Willy Hernangomez should be picked up in all standard leagues. Kyle O'Quinn gets a nice boost as well. Marc Berman of the NY Post is reporting that Noah's surgery is scheduled for Monday night. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:55 am
  • Ben Simmons undergoes 'minor foot procedure'
    Ben Simmons had a "minor foot procedure" to stimulate bone growth and accelerate healing.

    Advice: He had bone marrow injected in his effective fracture area, but the 76ers said he will resume training by the end of the week. Simmons has already been ruled out for the season, but he will continue to have scans on his foot every month. For now, he's expected to be ready for the summer league. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:51 am
  • Deron Williams' status is unclear for Monday
    Deron Williams' status for Monday's game vs. the Bucks is still up in the air.

    Advice: He's fully expected to sign at some point Monday, but he wasn't at the morning shootaround. If D-Will is cleared in time to play, he could be tossed into the fire right away as LeBron James (illness) and Kyle Korver (knee) are considered questionable. To be clear, D-Will is not a great fantasy pickup in Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:29 am
  • Nets officially waive Luis Scola
    The Nets have officially waived Luis Scola.

    Advice: Scola was playing on an expiring contract, but this will give him the chance to join a contender in what could be his final season in the NBA. With Scola no longer in the mix, Justin Hamitlon should have a few more minutes coming his way. Expect the Nets to sign another big with their open roster spot. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:20 am
  • Mavs hope Yogi Ferrell is their PG of future
    The Mavericks are hoping that Yogi Ferrell is their starting point guard of the future.

    Advice: "Continued improvement, continued aggression, continue to get integrated more and more into the mentality we like to play with,’’ coach Rick Carlisle said when asked what we wants to see from the 23-year-old PG going forward. "He’s going to have a lot of tough defensive assignments along the way." It sounds like Ferrell will be the starter even when J.J. Barea (leg) returns, and it helps that the Mavs don't have a great chance to reach the postseason. Ferrell is in a bit of a slump and has been held to single-digit points in his last three games on 7-of-26 shooting, but he will try to bounce back on Monday vs. the Heat. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:34 am
  • Knicks recall Ron Baker
    The Knicks have recalled Ron Baker, Maurice Ndour and Mashall Plumlee from the D-League.

    Advice: Ndour and Plumlee likely won't be in the rotation, but Baker now has a chance to fight for the backup PG role with Chasson Randle because the Knicks are waiving Brandon Jennings. To be clear, Baker is not a fantasy pickup. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:24 am
  • Woj: Knicks will sign PG Chasson Randle
    The Knicks are planning to use their open roster spot to sign Chasson Randle.

    Advice: Randle was with the Knicks during the offseason, but was waived after suffering an orbital wall fracture. He ended up in Philly, but was eventually waived as the 76ers needed his roster spot to acquire Andrew Bogut in the Nerlens Noel trade. Randle has some talent and is a solid 3-point shooter, so he could be very interesting later in the season if Derrick Rose gets hurt or is shut down. He will be signed for the remainder of the season and will have a team option for next season. Randle is expected to be available for Monday's game vs. Toronto. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:07 am
  • Jeremy Lamb scores 19 points vs. Clippers
    Jeremy Lamb stepped up in 37 bench minutes on Sunday, scoring 19 points with six rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in a road loss vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Lamb made 5-of-10 field goals and 8-of-8 free throws for his second-highest scoring game of the season, and his contributions were critical in taking pressure off Kemba Walker and Nic Batum. The fifth-year swingman has found a solid niche off Charlotte's bench the past two seasons, but he doesn't typically do enough for standard-league ownership. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Baker, Ndour, Plumlee sent down to D-League
    The Knicks have assigned Ron Baker, Maurice Ndour and Mashall Plumlee to their D-League affiliate.

    Advice: None of these guys are regular rotation players in New York, so there's no fantasy spin with this report. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:38 am
  • Hornets sign Briante Weber to 10-day deal
    The Hornets will sign Briante Weber to a 10-day contract.

    Advice: He was released by the Warriors on Saturday night, so the Hornets aren't wasting any time here. Weber will compete with Brian Roberts for the backup PG role behind Kemba Walker, but there's no fantasy appeal here. Weber has career averages of 3.1 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 0.9 steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:59 am
  • Jefferson (dental pain) questionable Monday
    Al Jefferson (dental pain) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: Jefferson missed his second game in a row on Saturday vs. the Heat, but he did travel with the team and is nearing a return. "He came into [Friday’s] shootaround OK and came back for the game with a swollen mouth," Pacers coach Nate McMillan said on Saturday. "He wasn’t feeling good today and we decided to leave him at the hotel." If Big Al misses another game, Rakeem Christmas will be looking at minutes in the teens off the bench. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:55 am
  • Hornets expected to sign Briante Weber
    The Hornets are the favorites to sign Briante Weber.

    Advice: The Warriors released Weber on Sunday night as they intend to pursue Jose Calderon. Charlotte is actually a decent landing spot for Weber, as he will have a chance to win the backup PG job behind Kemba Walker with Ramon Sessions (knee) out a while. To be clear, there's not much fantasy appeal here for the defensive specialist. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:30 am
  • Cameron Payne returned to action on Saturday February 25. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:29 am
  • Briante Weber done with the Warriors
    The Warriors will release Briante Weber.

    Advice: It's buyout season and the Warriors will be looking at guys like Jose Calderon. This is actually a positive for Weber because some team with less talent will be signing him. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:16 pm
  • Cam Payne makes his Chicago debut
    Cameron Payne made his Bulls debut on Saturday with six points, one rebound, one assist and two turnovers in 12 minutes.

    Advice: The Bulls could eventually start Payne, but for now it doesn't look like Rajon Rondo is going away. That means Payne will likely be capped at around 24 minutes and there really won't be many chances to produce with Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade soaking up all the usage. Payne is really just a deep flier right now. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:35 pm
  • Cameron Payne is available
    Cameron Payne is available to play against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Advice: With Jerian Grant starting and coach Fred Hoiberg saying he wants to keep Rajon Rondo in the rotation, it's tough to tell where Payne will get his minutes. He hasn't played too well this year, so most fantasy owners can take a wait-and-see approach. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:07 pm
  • Al Jefferson (dental pain) out for Saturday
    Al Jefferson (dental pain) is out for Saturday against the Heat.

    Advice: He had a procedure earlier this week and will miss his second straight game. Rakeem Christmas was the backup five and actually played well, so maybe he can get 15 minutes behind Myles Turner. Christmas isn't an add almost anywhere, of course. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:44 pm
  • Joakim Noah will not play Saturday
    Joakim Noah (hamstring) will not play against the 76ers on Saturday.

    Advice: He is also not expected to play on Monday. The Knicks are in no rush to bring him back, especially with how well Willy Hernangomez is playing lately. Noah isn't worth owning while Hernangomez should be owned in all leagues and will be a popular DFS play. Kyle O'Quinn also benefits. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:54 pm
  • Deron Williams will sign with the Cavs
    Deron Williams will sign with the Cavs.

    Advice: This move has been expected since Thursday and it should be official at some point on Monday now that he's through waivers. The Cavs haven't had a backup point guard for most of this month with Kay Felder in the D-League and the team playing DeAndre Liggins out of position. Williams loses a lot of fantasy value on his new team. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:14 pm
  • Jefferson (dental pain) questionable Saturday
    Al Jefferson (dental pain) is listed as questionable Saturday vs. Miami.

    Advice: Jefferson missed Friday night's game due to the same issue. Surprisingly, it was Rakeem Christmas, not Kevin Seraphin, who soaked up Jefferson's minutes off the Pacers bench. Christmas scored four points, grabbed five rebounds and blocked a shot in 14 minutes against the Grizzlies on Friday. It will be interesting to see if Christmas gets the call again on Saturday if Big Al is unable to suit up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:17 am
  • Joakim Noah (hamstring) doubtful Saturday
    Joakim Noah (left hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Noah has missed each of the Knicks last six games. Willy Hernangomez is expected to draw another start on Saturday. Willy is averaging 11.5 points (on 51.4 percent shooting), 10.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists in the four games he has started this season. Kyle O'Quinn should also continue to see additional minutes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:34 am
  • Michael Carter-Williams (knee) out Saturday
    Michael Carter-Williams (patellar tendinitis) is not with the team and will not play Saturday vs. the Cavs.

    Advice: Despite starting on Friday night, MCW played just eight minutes. This injury may have been a reason for his lack of playing time and production. Either way, Carter-Williams is averaging just 5.5 points and 2.7 assists over the Bulls last six games, five of which he started. If you were looking for an excuse to cut him lose, this latest injury should be it. With MCW out, Cameron Payne, making his Bulls debut, and Denzel Valentine should see additional minutes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:06 am
  • Cam Payne (illness) expects to play Saturday
    Cameron Payne (illness) said he expects to dress and be available for Saturday's game vs. the Cavs.

    Advice: Payne was prevented from making his Bulls debut on Friday because he was under the weather. The Bulls gave up a lot (Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott) in the trade with OKC, so Payne is expected to see significant minutes the rest of the season in Chicago. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:16 am
  • MCW gets eight minutes
    Michael Carter-Williams scored two points with one assist in eight minutes during a start against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: Even with the Bulls having little depth on the wing, Carter-Williams still couldn't do much. His chances as a shooting guard figure to fall off with the Bulls wanting to get a look at Denzel Valentine. Drop MCW. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:03 pm
  • Yogi Ferrell shoots 2-of-9 from the field
    Yogi Ferrell moved back into the starting lineup vs. the Wolves on Friday, but shot 2-of-9 from the field and finished with five points.

    Advice: The Mavericks bought out Deron Williams in order to hand the reins over to Ferrell, but this was a rough start to the unofficial second half of the season. Ferrell still logged 30 minutes and added four assists, three rebounds, one steal and one triple, so his workload should be safe at least until J.J. Barea (leg) returns. He gets a better mathcup on Saturday vs. the Pelicans, so it makes sense to give him another chance. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:39 pm
  • Carter-Williams starting over Grant
    Michael Carter-Williams, Dwyane Wade, Jimmy Butler, Bobby Portis and Robin Lopez will start against the Suns.

    Advice: MCW should see some decent minutes with the Bulls thin on the wing to go with his starting role. He's still a risky fantasy play with Wade and Butler in the lineup. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:57 pm
  • Paul Zipser out for at least two games
    Paul Zipser (ankle) will not play Friday against the Suns or Saturday against the Cavs.

    Advice: We should get a decent amount of Denzel Valentine for this game while Michael Carter-Williams should see decent minutes, as well. With Doug McDermott out of town, the Bulls clearly want to get a look at Zipser once he's healthy. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:31 pm
    Injured
     
  • Cameron Payne (illness) will not play vs. PHX
    Cameron Payne (illness) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: The other former Thunder players are good to go, but Payne has the flu. The Bulls overpaid for Payne, so they will likely give him decent minutes once he gets a grip on the offense. He'll have a lot of bumps in the road in his new role, but he's worth a look in fantasy leagues if you need a point guard. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:20 pm
  • Al Jefferson (dental pain) out for Friday
    Al Jefferson (dental pain) will not play on Friday against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Hopefully this is just a one-day thing for Jefferson, who was not on the injury report just an hour ago. With the Pacers getting their power forwards back, Kevin Seraphin should slide over the backup five spot behind Myles Turner against the bigger Memphis front line. Turner also get a slight bump, too. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:37 pm
  • Ben Simmons (foot) will not play this season
    Sixers GM Bryan Colangelo announced on Friday that Ben Simmons will not play this season, as his foot has not yet fully healed.

    Advice: It's a tough blow for the Sixers, as they were hoping to get at least a glimpse of the first overall pick in the 2016 draft over the final month of the season. Simmons suffered a Jones fracture back in October. There was not timeline given initially, but Simmons had progressed to the point where he was recently participating in limited portions of practice. However, after consulting with team physicians, the Sixers decided it was best to sideline him for the entire season. If you had stashed Simmons on your roster in re-draft leagues, he can now be cut loose. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:51 am
  • Jazz may claim Deron Williams off waivers
    Utah is well below the salary floor and may be interested in claiming Deron Williams off waivers.

    Advice: It has been widely reported that Williams will sign with the Cavs once he clears waivers; however, it's not a given that will happen. The Jazz are $4 million below the salary floor and thus can easily absorb the remainder of Williams contract. D-Will was originally drafted by the Jazz and still owns a home in Utah. The Cavs still appear to be the heavy favorites to land Williams if he clears waivers, but Utah will have a crack at him first. Williams fantasy value will take a big hit in either Cleveland or Utah, as he will be relegated to reserve duty. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:25 am
  • 76ers waive Chasson Randle
    Sixers waive G Chasson Randle.

    Advice: They had to clear a roster spot to complete the Justin Anderson deal. After a strong preseason with the Knicks, Randle never really got a chance to show what he could do in the NBA. He'll likely get a 10-day deal at some point. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:34 pm
  • AP: Deron Williams planning to join Cavs
    Deron Williams plans to join the Cavs, according to the Associated Press.

    Advice: He still has to clear waivers, but there are a ton of reports saying the Cavs will be signing the former All-Star. Williams played on Team USA with LeBron James, so those two are familiar playing next to each other despite not playing on the same NBA team. He will back up Kyrie Irving and could also see some minutes in two-PG lineups. Obviously his fantasy value takes a major hit. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:12 pm
  • Mavericks waive Deron Williams on Thursday
    Mavs waive G Deron Williams.

    Advice: The Mavs do right by their point guard to allow him to join a contender. The Cavs look to be the heavy favorite to land the former All-Star guard and have him back up Kyrie Irving. When he was on the court, Williams was having a solid season, averaging 13.1 points, 6.9 assists and 1.6 treys in 29.3 minutes per game. His fantasy value will be dropping in a big way while Yogi Ferrell gets the keys to the offense going forward. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:14 pm
  • ESPN: Deron Williams possibly getting buyout
    Deron Williams is "possibly" receiving a buyout from the Mavs, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com.

    Advice: According to The Vertical, the Cavs, Hawks and Jazz are expected to be interested -- David Aldridge adds that in the event of Williams being waived, "all signs point" to the Cavs acquiring him. Williams is not expected to ask for a buyout, but the team is expected to do it in order to get a look at rookie Yogi Ferrell. A lot of teams cleared out some salary to help them go after a guy like Deron, who almost certainly will be a backup wherever he goes. Ferrell should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:13 pm
  • Cameron Payne traded to Chicago at deadline
    Cameron Payne has been traded to the Bulls as part of a multi-player deal with the Thunder, according to ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

    Advice: Chicago has been starting Jerian Grant at PG and it's reasonable to assume that Payne will overtake him quickly, if not immediately. The Bulls are hoping that Payne is their PG of the future and he's an interesting add if you need a cheap guard down the stretch -- he should already be owned in dynasty formats. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:56 am
  • Deron Williams doesn't practice Thursday
    Deron Williams sat out Thursday's practice.

    Advice: Williams also sat out on Wednesday and he's not injured, so this adds weight to recent trade rumors -- coach Rick Carlisle also cited a "pending" situation. The Jazz have been mentioned as a potential landing spot, even though it seems like an odd fit. Either way, Yogi Ferrell stands to gain plenty of value if D-Will heads out of Dallas. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:18 am
  • Bulls interested in Cam Payne
    The Bulls have some interest in Cameron Payne, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: As mentioned earlier today, the Thunder are interested in Taj Gibson and Doug McDermott. Multiple reports say the Bulls have been burning up the phones and should be making some sort of deal. Payne would actually have a shot to start in Chicago, but he's only a stash in very deep leagues for now. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:06 am
  • Deron Williams won't ask for buyout
    Deron Williams isn't expected to ask for a buyout if he's not moved before the deadline.

    Advice: The Jazz have been linked to D-Will, but there is no deal in the works right now. A move would more than likely hurt his fantasy value, so his owners will be hoping that he stays put. Yogi Ferrell will be the big winner if the Mavs find a new home for Williams. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:13 am
  • Deron Williams, Andrew Bogut don't practice
    Deron Williams and Andrew Bogut did not practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Rick Carlisle said everyone can "read into what you want" about this move being tied to the trade deadline. Owner Mark Cuban has also talked about the Mavs taking on salary to get a draft pick. The Mavs aren't under the cap right now, so that makes dealing veterans even more likely. Deron would almost certainly lose fantasy value on a new team. Yogi Ferrell is still a hold. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:58 pm
  • Brown wants Ben Simmons to play this season
    76ers head coach said he'd like to see Ben Simmons take the court this season.

    Advice: Simmons was limited to individual work during Wednesday's practice, and he's scheduled to have another CT scan on Thursday. While Brown would like to see what he's got in the No. 1 overall pick, the 76ers are running out of time, and considering he's yet to go through any 5-on-5 work we can go ahead and assume he'll miss both games this weekend. The talent is there, but at this point, Simmons just isn't a great standard league stash. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:07 am
  • Joakim Noah (hamstring) doesn't practice Weds
    Joakim Noah (left hamstring) was not able to practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Noah has already been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Cavs, so it's not at all surprising to see him sit out Wednesday's practice, as it looks like he could be dealing with another lengthy absence after tweaking the injury just before the break. Willy Hernangomez will be drawing the start on Thursday night, and Kyle O'Quinn will have the opportunity for some extended minutes with the second unit. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:50 am
  • Dallas not discussing Williams deal w/ Utah?
    The Mavs reportedly have not had any discussions with the Jazz regarding a Deron Williams deal.

    Advice: With a plethora of point guards already on the roster, Utah going after a guy like Williams just doesn't make much sense. That being said, Williams' name has come up in a few trade rumors, so deep league GMs may want to consider stashing away Yogi Ferrell as we approach deadline day. Williams will likely lose value outside of Dallas. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:47 am
  • Joakim Noah (hamstring) ruled out Thursday
    Joakim Noah (left hamstring) will not play on Thursday vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: This will be the sixth game in a row on the shelf for the oft-injured big man as he tweaked his hamstring again right before the All-Star break. Based on his history, don't expect him back soon. Willy Hernangomez will draw the start according to coach Jeff Hornacek and looks like a great pickup in standard leagues. Kyle O'Quinn also gets a nice bump. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:04 pm
  • Joakim Noah, Lee sit out practice Tuesday
    Courtney Lee (illness) and Joakim Noah (left hamstring) did not practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: Noah missed the last five games before the break, so it's a concern that he's not 100 percent yet. The Knicks could be sellers at the trade deadline and Noah's outlook would take a hit if they started rebuilding, so he belongs on the wire in most leagues. Kyle O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez benefit every time Noah sits, but Hernangomez has the better outlook. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:41 pm
  • Warriors recall Briante Weber from D-League
    The Warriors have recalled Brainte Weber from the D-League.

    Advice: Weber's second 10-day contract will expire on Friday, so if the Dubs want to bring him on long-term, they'll have to make that decision soon. Weber has zero fantasy value in Golden State. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:21 pm
  • Briante Weber assigned to D-League
    The Warriors assigned Briante Weber to the D-League on Friday.

    Advice: The move will allow Weber to participate in Saturday morning's D-League All-Star game. Weber has appeared in five games with the Warriors this season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.0 assist in 8.2 minutes. Rotoworld.com Feb 18, 7:22 am
