  • Nick Young will pick up a DNP-CD Tuesday
    Nick Young will pick up yet another DNP-CD on Tuesday.

    Advice: Young has only managed to get into the rotation twice over the Lakers past eight games, but Luke Walton did say he hasn't officially shut down Young just yet, and that at some point he may be able to return to the rotation. However, until that happens, Swaggy-DNP is safe to leave on the waiver wire in all formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:35 am
  • Corey Brewer will start Tuesday vs. Wizards
    Corey Brewer will remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against Washington, with Brandon Ingram (knee) unavailable.

    Advice: Brewer put up three points, two boards, one assist, one steal, one triple and two blocks through 19 minutes as a starter his last time out, so he can't be considered a viable target in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:16 am
  • Jonas Jerebko (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Jonas Jerebko was unable to finish practice on Tuesday due to a sore knee.

    Advice: At this point, we have to consider Jerebko questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks. The fantasy impact is minimal, as he is averaging just 11.1 minutes per game over his last four appearances. Kelly Olynyk and Tyler Zeller may see a few extra minutes if Jerebko does not play on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:50 am
  • Khris Middleton (ill) questionable Tuesday
    Khris Middleton (stomach virus) missed shootaround this morning and is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: The flu bug has claimed many a victim this season. Here's hoping that Middleton is not added to the list of players that have been forced to miss a game. If Middleton is unable to suit up, Mirza Teletovic would likely see the biggest bump in playing time. Tony Snell and Jason Terry may log a few extra minutes as well. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:05 am
  • Jeff Green (back) listed as out for Wednesday
    Jeff Green (back spasms) is listed as "out" for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: This would be the fourth straight game Green has missed. Mario Hezonja has seen playing time increase with Green sidelined, but has been ineffective. Hezonja is averaging 5.7 points (on just 21.4 percent shooting) and 4.3 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game over Orlando's last three contests. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:59 am

  • Korver (foot) says there has been 'progress'
    Kyle Korver (foot) will miss the Cavs next three games, but he says he's seen "progress" and is hopeful he won't miss the remainder of the regular season.

    Advice: "I’m hopeful just a few days here to completely shut down and not trying to test it out and see how it feels," said Korver. "It’s just not quite where it needs to be for me to play like I’m really being me. Everyone keeps saying we’re going to play basketball for a long time. Get it right for the playoffs." Korver said the training staff is trying out new pads in his shoes to alleviate the soreness. J.R Smith will continue to start and log heavy minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:22 am
    Injured
     
  • Reggie Bullock (foot) questionable Tuesday
    Reggie Bullock (right foot sprain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Miami.

    Advice: Bullock did not play Monday in New York, after having averaged 14.8 minutes in the Pistons three previous games. Stanley Johnson and Jon Leuer may see a few extra minutes if Bullock does not play Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:01 am
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) still without timetable
    Dion Waiters (ankle) had an MRI, which came back negative, but is still without a timetable for his return.

    Advice: The Heat only have nine games left this season, including a back-to-back on Tuesday and Wednesday. Waiters is running out of time to get back in the mix. Josh Richardson will continue to start and log heavy minutes in his absence. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:59 am
  • Gerald Henderson (hip) ruled out Tuesday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: This is not surprising, as the Sixers also play on Wednesday and they have previously kept Henderson out of back-to-back sets due to his nagging hip injury. Nik Stauskas, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Justin Anderson could see a slight uptick in minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:27 am
  • Andre Iguodala finishing the season strongly
    Andre Iguodala has stepped up since Kevin Durant (knee) went down and has played his best basketball of the season this month.

    Advice: The 33-year old Iguodala credits yoga, cryotherapy and salt floating with keeping him fresh this late in the season. "He’s been fantastic," coach Steve Kerr said. "He looks incredibly athletic, bouncy and fresh." Over his last nine games, Iggy is averaging 12.4 points (on 63.1 percent shooting), 3.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals. The only real concern going forward is Kerr intermittently resting him. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:55 am
  • Kent Bazemore (knee) 'trending upward'
    Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play Tuesday but is planning to return for Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Tuesday's game vs. Phoenix will be the fifth straight contest Bazemore has missed after injuring his knee during the Hawks loss to the Blazers on March 18. Bazemore said the rehab has been successful and he is "starting to feel good" and can now do "just about everything." The red-hot Tim Hardaway Jr. will draw another start and play heavy minutes on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:36 am
  • Danny Green returned to action on Monday March 27. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:46 am
  • Rodney Hood scores 20 points in win
    Rodney Hood snapped out of his funk with 20 points on 7-of-16 shooting vs. the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: Hood scored a combined 23 points in his previous three games, but stepped up with Gordon Hayward (quad) and Alec Burks (personal) out -- Hood gets an 8.2 usage rate bump with Hayward off the court. He added six rebounds with three assists and four triples, but he's had a lot of trouble staying healthy this season and his FG percentage has been all over the place. If Hayward sits on Wednesday, Hood could be poised for another solid night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Joe Ingles scores 19 points, hits five treys
    Joe Ingles started in place of Gordon Hayward (quad) in Monday's 108-100 win over the Pelicans and scored 19 points in 35 minutes.

    Advice: The Jazz were running a lot of offense through him down the stretch and he delivered, scoring 10 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter -- he even hit a step-back jumper over Anthony Davis in the final two minutes. He finished 7-of-13 from the field and hit all five of his 3-pointers, adding four rebounds, four assists and one steal. He won't be this good, but give him a look if we learn that Hayward will miss more time. Ingles averaged 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.0 triples in 20 previous starts this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard posts 25-6-6 in rout of Cavs
    Kawhi Leonard finished with 25 points, six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a blocked shot in 30 minutes on Monday against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: About the only thing fantasy owners can complain about is the fact Leonard missed all seven of his 3-pointer attempts. He could have blown through the lane for an easy deuce most of the evening, but elected to go outside rather frequently. He still was 11-of-21 overall from the floor, so fantasy owners cannot complain too loudly. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Danny Green records four blocked shots
    Danny Green misfired on six of his seven field goal attempts in Monday's win against the Cavaliers, but he ended up with four blocked shots and two steals.

    Advice: Two of Green's swats came at the expense of none other than LeBron James, as that is the kind of night it was for the Cavaliers. Green at least dropped one in the bucket from behind the arc, his specialty, although he has struggled from the perimeter in March. Green has made just five of his past 23 triple attempts over the past seven games, so he isn't really helping any fantasy owners at the moment. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • Joe Ingles starting for Gordon Hayward (quad)
    Joe Ingles will start in place of Gordon Hayward (quad) on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: The Jazz will start George Hill, Rodney Hood, Ingles, Boris Diaw and Rudy Gobert. Ingles is worth a look if you need some stream some assists, steals and triples, as he's averaging 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.0 triples in 20 starts this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:00 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) out at least 3 more games
    Kyle Korver (foot) will miss at least the next three games for Cleveland.

    Advice: Korver is going to miss Monday's game in San Antonio, Thursday's game in Chicago and Friday's game against Philadelphia, and with the Cavs saying "at least three games," it seems there's a good chance he could miss Sunday's matchup with Indiana as well. Iman Shumpert (knee) will be joining Korver on the sidelines tonight, so J.R. Smith should get all the minutes he can handle. At this point in the fantasy season, Korver isn't worth hanging onto in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:35 pm
    Injured
     
  • Danny Green (rest) will play Monday vs. CLE
    Danny Green (rest) will return to the court for Monday's matchup with the Cavs.

    Advice: Green sat out Saturday's game as a precaution, but he'll get back out there tonight, which will likely shift Jonathon Simmons back to the second unit. Gregg Popovich confirmed that he won't be resting any of his main guys for Monday's game, so if you own LaMarcus Aldridge, Kawhi Leonard or Pau Gasol, feel free to get those guys active. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:24 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) will be re-evaluated Thurs
    Kyle Korver (foot) said he will be re-evaluated prior to Thursday night's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Korver will not play Monday vs. San Antonio, so J.R. Smith should be looking at minutes in the 30s tonight. Korver has now undergone two MRIs on his sore left foot, both of which have come back clean, but he acknowledged that his foot "never really felt all the way right," when he returned on March 19 from a seven-game absence. With the Cavs focused on the Finals, Korver may not play again during the regular-season, so he's a cut candidate in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:36 am
    Injured
     
  • Kent Bazemore (knee) targeting Wednesday?
    Kent Bazemore (knee) could return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: This means he will miss at least one more game vs. the Suns on Tuesday. Thabo Sefolosha (groin) is also out on Tuesday, meaning Taurean Prince will be a solid streaming option vs. the Suns -- Prince scored a career-high 17 points in his first NBA start against the Nets on Sunday with six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to be a must-start player until further notice. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:49 am
  • Reggie Bullock (foot) out Monday
    Reggie Bullock (foot) will not play on Monday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: He's been diagnosed with a sprained right foot and is currently in a walking boot. Bullock was averaging 13.3 minutes over his last four games, so Stanley Johnson will likely pick up a few extra minutes in his absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:16 am
  • Kyle Korver (foot) ruled out for Monday
    Kyle Korver (foot) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Not good. He's dealing with left foot soreness again, the same issue that sidelined him for seven games earlier this month. Fantasy owners can't mess around during the playoffs, and considering coach Tyronn Lue doesn't know when the sharpshooter will return, it makes sense to evaluate other options. With Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) considered questionable, J.R. Smith should get a lot of burn. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:12 am
    Injured
     
  • Corey Brewer starts for Brandon Ingram (knee)
    Corey Brewer started Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (right knee), finishing with three points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Brewer might have played more if the game were close, but the veteran got a long rest with the score out of hand in the second half. He's not a fantasy option, even if Ingram misses more games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:38 pm
  • Andre Iguodala posts all-around gem vs. MEM
    Andre Iguodala had a hyper-efficient game on Sunday, making 7-of-8 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with two 3-pointers for 20 points, while adding seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and zero turnovers.

    Advice: Iguodala logged 32 minutes tonight and he's been critical to the Warriors' success since Kevin Durant went down. For what it's worth, Steve Kerr didn't explicitly rule out resting Iguodala over the next week, which includes a back-to-back set vs. the Spurs and Rockets. He has been awesome lately, and owners should simply monitor his status prior to each of Golden State's games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:00 pm
  • Gerald Henderson (hip) logs 18 minutes
    Gerald Henderson (hip) played 18 minutes during Sunday's 107-94 loss in Indiana, going 2-of-6 from the field for five points, two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Henderson's hip has been a nagging issue for most of the season, and it's somewhat surprising that Philly hasn't simply shut him down. He's little more than a veteran mentor at this point, setting an example for his neophyte teammates, and the vast majority of fantasy owners can do better on the wire. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:15 pm
  • Corey Brewer starting for Brandon Ingram
    Corey Brewer will start Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (patellar tendinitis).

    Advice: David Nwaba should also get a significant boost with Ingram on the sidelines, and we might even see Nick Young or Metta World Peace get a few minutes. This is a situation to avoid in the vast majority of fantasy scenarios. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:05 pm
  • Khris Middleton gets 14 points on 17 shots
    Khris Middleton needed 17 shots to score 14 points on Sunday, connecting on six attempts while adding six rebounds, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers without a turnover in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Middleton had an atrocious night vs. Atlanta on Friday, going 1-of-13 from the field with three turnovers, and he's going through a prolonged slump at a brutal time for fantasy owners. He's too good to struggle much longer, though, and should benefit from a cupcake matchup with the Kings' defense on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:19 pm
  • Danny Green expected to return Monday vs. CLE
    Danny Green is expected to return on Monday after sitting out Saturday's game as a precaution.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like the Spurs will rest any of their veterans for Monday's game vs. the Cavaliers, so owners can tentatively deploy them as usual. Dejounte Murray (groin) is the only player currently ruled out. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:55 pm
  • Jeff Green (back spasms) ruled out Monday
    Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play on Monday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: He's not even making the trip and this will be his third straight game on the shelf. With the Magic playing for lottery balls, it wouldn't be a surprise if the veteran missed more time. Mario Hezonja is getting a nice bump in minutes in Green's absence, but he's only worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues for now. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:34 am

  • Gerald Henderson is available Sunday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) is available to play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He sat out of the morning shootaround and is likely battling some soreness in his hip. Henderson will likely pick up some DNPs down the stretch, so he belongs on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:34 am
  • Kawhi Leonard scores 29 points vs. Knicks
    Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points during a 106-98 win over the Knicks on Saturday, adding five rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: The minutes continue to be there and it looks like for the second year in a row, Kawhi will play more minutes per game after the break than he did before it. Leonard also hinted that he won't be seeing a decrease in minutes based on the tough upcoming schedule. "It's going to get us mentally prepared," Leonard said. This tough stretch starts against the Cavs on Monday as the Spurs start a four-game week. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:56 pm
  • Kyle Korver doesn't get much vs. Wizards
    Kyle Korver scored 10 points with two rebounds and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

    Advice: His playing time didn't change much even with Iman Shumpert (knee) not playing in this game. Korver isn't getting enough usage or minutes to be counted on while the Cavs are close to 100 percent. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:13 pm
    Injured
     
  • Rodney Hood has another rough day
    Rodney Hood made 4-of-13 from the field for nine points with four rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He has not shown up since returning from his knee soreness, averaging 7.7 points, 3.0 boards, 0.7 steals and 1.0 treys on just 33.3 percent from the field in those three. Joe Ingles has outplayed Hood for the majority of the season and his knee issue may be the reason. Regardless, Hood isn't a fantasy option for most owners in this crucial part of the season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:15 pm
  • Joe Ingles hurts right elbow
    Joe Ingles (right elbow) scored one point with three rebounds, five assists and one steal in 27 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He looked to suffer a non-contact injury to his non-shooting elbow and left the game after the injury. Ingles didn't get treatment or medical attention after he checked out, and he did return shortly afterwards. For now, Ingles sounds like he's going to be OK. If Gordon Hayward (knee) does need to miss time, Ingles would be asked to step up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:04 pm
  • Kent Bazemore out again for Sunday
    Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play against the Nets on Sunday.

    Advice: He was expected to miss 7-10 days, so he was not expected to play since that prognosis back on Mar. 19. With Bazemore out at least one more, Tim Hardaway Jr. should see all the run he can handle while Thabo Sefolosha, Mike Dunleavy and Taurean Prince pick up the scraps on the wing. Bazemore should be dropped in most leagues. Prince has the most value of that bunch and gets a great matchup on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:06 pm
  • Danny Green (rest) will not play vs. Knicks
    Danny Green (rest) will not play against the Knicks on Saturday.

    Advice: It'll be his first game off since November and it comes on a non-back-to-back set. Green has played 28.5 minutes per game in March, which is by far the most he's played in a full month this season. With Green out tonight, Jonathon Simmons figures to get some extra run and could get some added value in garbage time tonight. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:44 am
  • Andre Iguodala scores nine points
    Andre Iguodala scored nine points with one rebound, three assists and no turnovers in 27 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

    Advice: He did go to the locker room in the last few minutes, but the game was over. Iguodala did not give much indication he was going to miss time, so he should be fine for Sunday. Although, the Warriors will likely rest him again at some point. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:10 am
  • Middleton shoots 1-of-13, Bucks win anyways
    Khris Middleton shot 1-of-13 from the field and only scored six points, but the Bucks won their third straight game in a 100-97 win over the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: With the win, the Bucks are now tied with the Hawks for the No. 5 seed in the East. Middleton played 32 minutes and added three rebounds, three assists, three steals and three turnovers, but this will likely be an outlier in what has been an incredible month -- he was averaging 18.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.9 triples in his previous 13 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:43 pm
  • 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 Friday, 2:24 pm

  • Andre Iguodala not on the injury report
    Andre Iguodala (hip) is not on the injury report for Friday against the Kings.

    Advice: After missing the last game on Tuesday, Iguodala could be back for this home game. The Warriors are not on a back-to-bac set, but they really won't need Iggy as 18-point favorites tonight. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:47 pm
  • 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 Friday, 8:23 am

  • Dion Waiters (ankle) is 'progressing'
    Dion Waiters (ankle) is reportedly "progressing in the right direction," but there is still no timetable for his return.

    Advice: Waiters has missed three straight games due to the ankle issue. "He’s feeling better," coach Erik Spoelstra said on Thursday. "Some of the swelling is starting to come down. But there still is no timetable." Josh Richardson is the primary benefactor here. J-Rich continues to start and play heavy minutes in Waiters absence. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:30 am
  • Danny Green vanishes in 22 minutes Thursday
    Danny Green disappeared vs. Memphis on Thursday with four points, two assists, one turnover and no other stats to his credit in 22 minutes.

    Advice: We're more than 85 percent through with the regular season, so anyone owning Green should be inured to occasional duds. He's not worth owning in most points leagues, but continues to eke out value in most roto formats. Owners should at least be spared DNP-CDs given his modest playing time and the Spurs' continued pursuit of the No. 1 seed. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:47 pm
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) in a walking boot
    Dion Waiters (ankle) was in a walking boot on Thursday.

    Advice: The good news is Waiters was not on crutches. The Heat have not revealed a timetable on Waiters, but he's likely out for multiple games. With him out, Josh Richardson should benefit the most while Wayne Ellington should have more shots going his way. J-Rich is worth a long look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:40 pm
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) still has no timetable
    Dion Waiters (ankle) still has no timetable to return.

    Advice: The good news is that the swelling is down and coach Erik Spoelstra said he's "feeling better." With Waiters out, Josh Richardson has emerged as the clear pickup in his absence. Richardson is averaging 12.0 points, 2.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 0.5 steals and 1.5 triples in his last two games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:56 am
  • Rodney Hood struggles in 21 minutes Wednesday
    Rodney Hood had another forgettable game on Wednesday, logging 21 minutes to finish with three points on 1-of-4 shooting, three rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

    Advice: Hood was in foul trouble during his return from a knee injury on Monday, but tonight he was the victim of his own inefficiency -- Joe Ingles played 25 minutes, Joe Johnson played 23 minutes, and even Alec Burks logged 19 scoreless minutes. With his uninspiring play and recurring knee soreness, Hood is tough to trust if you're battling for the fantasy playoffs. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:03 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) scores nine points on Wed
    Kyle Korver (sore left foot) returned to action on Wednesday with nine points on 3-of-9 shooting, including a 3-of-8 mark from downtown.

    Advice: "A lot of my shots are turning over this left shoulder," Korver said, explaining the cause of his recent injury. "That’s kind of the foot I’m planting on more. I think that’s kind of where I get the wear and tear I’ve had over the years." Korver logged 19 minutes in his return but he should be in the mid- to high-20s before long.

  • Gerald Henderson scores four points
    Gerald Henderson scored four points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 16 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: The 76ers didn't play Henderson on Monday and actually put him in the first unit to start the second half. With the 76ers likely wanting to get a longer look at their younger wings, Henderson won't be playing too much down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:40 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) will play against Nuggets
    Kyle Korver (foot) will play against the Nuggets on Wednesday night.

    Advice: It will be his first action since Mar. 6. With Korver back, it'll be interesting to see how coach Ty Lue divides the minutes on the wing. Korver will have a lower upside, but he should be a solid specialist for treys going forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:36 pm
    Injured
     
  • Dion Waiters out again for Thursday
    Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play on Thursday against the Raptors.

    Advice: He's coming along just fine and the team may not give him an MRI this week. As of Wednesday, he doesn't have an MRI scheduled, so maybe Waiters is more day-to-day. Josh Richardson is a solid add in standard leagues and dropped 14 points on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:15 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) questionable Wednesday
    Coach Tyronn Lue said he was unsure whether Kyle Korver (sore left foot) will be able to play Wednesday night vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Korver has not played since March 6th due to the foot injury. He did state that he felt "a lot better" on Tuesday, so Korver is clearly headed in the right direction. We may be looking at a game-time decision Wednesday night. The issue for Korver owners is that even once he is fully healthy and active, Korver will have to divvy up minutes with J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert. Thus, it will be very difficult for him to match the numbers he was putting up his first few weeks in Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:58 am

  • 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.

  • Nick Young (illness) picks up a DNP-CD
    Nick Young (illness) picked up a DNP-CD on Tuesday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: He was healthy enough to play and coach Luke Walton said he was "available," but they probably wanted to take a look at David Nwaba. Young can be left on the wire in most leagues and this probably won't be his last DNP going forward. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:05 pm
  • Khris Middleton helps Bucks beat Blazers
    Khris Middleton racked up 26 points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals, a block and three 3-pointers on 11-of-22 shooting in 33 minutes of Tuesday's big 93-90 win over the Blazers.

    Advice: Wow. He was worth the wait if you stashed him long before he came back and there was some risk involved, as no one was really sure how he'd look or fit in with the new-look Bucks. He's been fantastic, averaging 18.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting over his last five games. With the Bucks fighting for their playoff life and seeding, Middleton should continue to roll the rest of the way. He's also played in all 12 of the Bucks' March games, scoring in double figures in all of them. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:15 pm
  • Nick Young (illness) is 'available' Tuesday
    Nick Young (illness) is "available" for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: When asked if Young would actually play, coach Luke Walton wouldn't commit to it. The Lakers just signed David Nwaba to a two-year deal Tuesday, so Young's illness may give the team an excuse to take a long look at the rookie guard. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:35 pm
  • Dion Waiters spotted without walking boot
    Dion Waiters (ankle) was spotted without a walking boot on Tuesday.

    Advice: Waiters is still on crutches, and his ankle is still swollen, but he was at least able to put some weight on his injured left ankle while making his way through the Miami locker room on Tuesday. Waiters remains without an official timetable to return, and him gingerly making his way through a locker room on crutches suggests that he's still not very close, so those without an IR-spot will need to strongly consider moving on from Waiters. Josh Richardson will continue to start in his place. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:51 pm
  • Kyle Korver (left foot) feeling much better
    Kyle Korver (sore left foot) said on Tuesday that he was feeling "a lot better," and "well rested."

    Advice: Korver added that his foot is feeling stronger, and with him getting in a full practice on Tuesday, it's looking like there's a chance we could see him back in action on Wednesday night vs. the Nuggets. Korver was playing well prior to going down, but that was with J.R. Smith on the sidelines, so it could be tough for him to replicate that production fighting for minutes with Smith and Iman Shumpert. We should get another update following shootaround, but this is a wait-and-see situation in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:42 pm

  • Andre Iguodala (hip) ruled out Tuesday
    Andre Iguodala (left hip strain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Mavs.

    Advice: This is the first we've heard of a hip injury for Iggy. We should get an update on its severity soon. Iguodala has missed a few games to rest this season but has been remarkably healthy all year long. With Kevin Durant (knee) already sidelined, this leaves the Warriors a bit thin at small forward. Patrick McCaw and Matt Barnes will both see an uptick in minutes, but it would be difficult to place too much trust in either player. Daily Slant: With Durant and Iguodala off the floor this season, Klay Thompson leads the Warriors in usage at 32.2%, and produces at a 1.17 FPPM clip compared to a 1.11 FPPM mark for back-court mate Stephen Curry. Ian Clark carries a considerably higher usage rate (25.6%) than either Matt Barnes (17.0%) or Patrick McCaw (15.2%) in that split, but targeting any of those three players is best left for GPP play.

  • Foul trouble limits Rodney Hood
    Rodney Hood (knee) was in the starting five Monday in Indiana, and he finished with 11 points, two rebounds and a pair of 3-pointers over 16 minutes.

    Advice: Hood was limited to 16 minutes due to foul trouble, not his ailing knee. That meant Joe Ingles, who Hood supplanted in the lineup, saw more action. It might be a slow go for Hood to knock off the rust and get back into the swing of things, but he is a decent play when he is active and healthy. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:21 pm
  • Joe Ingles adjusts to bench role again
    Joe Ingles came off the bench in Monday's game at Indiana, scoring four points with seven rebounds and five assists over 27 minutes.

    Advice: Ingles wasn't terribly active on the offensive end, but he was busy on the glass and he even recorded a blocked shot. He still logged starter-type minutes as the first option off the bench, although that was partly due to Rodney Hood being in foul trouble. Ingles remains a decent play in deeper fantasy formats even in a reserve role, although obviously his appeal is much higher when Hood is on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:12 pm
  • Rodney Hood starting, Joe Ingles to the bench
    Rodney Hood (knee) will return to the starting lineup following a two-game stint on the sidelines for Monday's matchup with Indiana, sending Joe Ingles back to the bench.

    Advice: Hood has been a frustrating guy to own this season, but at the very least, he could be someone to consider deploying as a deep league streamer or DFS punt play. George Hill, Gordon Hayward, Joe Johnson and Rudy Gobert will join Hood in the starting five for tonight's game. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:31 pm
  • Joe Ingles returns to the bench
    Joe Ingles will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Rodney Hood (knee) is returning to action, but Derrick Favors (knee) is still out. The Jazz are playing more small ball with Joe Johnson at the four, so Ingles should still see a healthy amount of minutes. His upside isn't the greatest when Hood is active, though. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:29 pm
  • Rodney Hood (knee) expected to play Monday
    Rodney Hood (knee) is expected to play Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Hood has spent the past two games on the sidelines with a sore right knee, but it sounds like he'll be back in action tonight, which will likely result in Joe Ingles heading back to the bench and there won't be as many minutes available for Joe Johnson. Hood has been woefully inconsistent this season, but if you've got someone to cut in a deep league, he could be someone to take a flier on. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:58 pm
  • Gerald Henderson ruled out Monday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) will not play on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Henderson will no longer play in both games of back-to-back sets, but they only have one more back-to-back set remaining on the schedule. Hendo has been battling through hip soreness, so he could be a shut-down candidate down the stretch. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Robert Covington will log heavy minutes on the wings, but Justin Anderson could see a nice bump as well. Henderson belongs on the wire in most formats. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:47 pm
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) ruled out for Tuesday
    Dion Waiters (left ankle) will not play Tuesday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Waiters is still on crutches, and while he's hopeful that he'll be able to return before the end of the regular season, he's most certainly going to be looking at a multi-game absence here. Josh Richardson drew the start in his place on Sunday and finished with 10 points, one triple, two dimes, one steal, one block, one board and one turnover in 33 minutes, so he could be worth a look in deep leagues. Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson should also be more active on offense. Unfortunately, Waiters is now a cut candidate in all leagues without an IR-spot. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:26 pm
  • Nick Young (illness) practices on Monday
    Nick Young (illness) was a full participant during Monday's practice.

    Advice: Young sat out Sunday's loss to the Cavs, but it looks like there's a good chance he'll be back in action on Tuesday vs. the Clippers. If Swaggy P is able to play, that'll translate to fewer minutes for guys like David Nwaba and Corey Brewer. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:03 pm
  • Rodney Hood (knee) questionable for Monday
    Rodney Hood (knee) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He can't shake this knee issue and even if does manage to play tonight, he will likely get some DNPs down the stretch. He's too frustrating to trust in the fantasy playoffs in standard leagues. Joe Ingles will be a solid streaming option if Hood is ruled out. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 9:04 am
  • Corey Brewer grabs nine rebounds Sunday
    Corey Brewer scored nine points with nine rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss against Cleveland.

    Advice: Brewer had his best game in months, but it is still unlikely to move the needle for most fantasy owners. He is nothing more than a depth play in deeper fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:23 pm
  • Update: Nick Young (illness) ruled out Sunday
    Updating a previous report, Nick Young (illness) will not play vs. the Cavs on Sunday.

    Advice: Luke Walton said he wasn't sure who would take over Young's role, but it figures to be split between Jordan Clarkson and Tyler Ennis, with Brandon Ingram possibly playing a few more minutes. Consider Young day-to-day. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 5:51 pm
  • Nick Young (illness) questionable for Sunday
    Nick Young (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: The Lakers are embracing their young guys down the stretch, so it doesn't make much sense to play Young at less than 100 percent. Check back for updates closer to tip-off. If he sits out, expect Jordan Clarkson, Tyler Ennis and Brandon Ingram to cover his minutes. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 4:52 pm
  • Dion Waiters (left ankle) is on crutches
    Dion Waiters (left ankle) is on crutches and is hoping he can return before the end of the regular season.

    Advice: Waiters said this ankle sprain is worse than his last one and he did break this ankle back in high school. The Heat are going to give him treatment every day and have not provided a timetable on his return. While Waiters is out, Josh Richardson gets a big chance and is starting on Sunday. If you need a guard and the wire dried up, J-Rich could be your guy with his nice upside. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 2:27 pm
  • Kent Bazemore has right knee bone bruise
    Kent Bazemore has a right knee bone bruise and will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days.

    Advice: He suffered the injury on Saturday night and did not return. Bazemore had an MRI to confirm the diagnosis and the Hawks will now have to move on to start this week without 40 percent of their starting lineup -- Paul Millsap (knee) is out for two games. With those two out, Ersan Ilyasova will be firing away from three, Tim Hardaway Jr. will get big minutes, Taurean Prince should play more than 20 minutes, the Hawks will likely use Malcolm Delaney at the two and maybe even DeAndre Bembry gets in the mix again. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 1:34 pm
  • Hendo scores nine points vs. Boston
    Gerald Henderson scored nine points with three rebounds and one assist against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: He did play some clutch minutes in this game and being the team's best free throw shooter this season helps his case. Still, the 76ers won't be playing him big minutes to get a longer look at their young guys. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 1:13 pm
  • Kyle Korver remains out
    Kyle Korver (foot) remains out and said there's "still something in" his left foot.

    Advice: "It's getting better but it hasn't come along like I'd hoped," Korver said. "I should've stopped playing on it a week and a half earlier. Now that I'm out, we might as well let it come all the way back, but it just hasn't yet." Considering the Cavs have been careful with their guys, we're likely not going to see Korver for a few games at least. J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert will play a little more. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:45 am
    Injured
     
  • Gerald Henderson is probable for Sunday
    Gerald Henderson is probable for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He's still dealing with some left hip soreness, the same hip he had surgery on in 2015. With Justin Anderson (illness) out Sunday, Hendo could pick up a few extra minutes off the bench. Don't be surprised if he's rested on Monday vs. the Magic, though. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 8:19 am
  • Andre Iguodala scores 15 off bench
    Andre Iguodala scored 15 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

    Advice: He may be one of the sneakiest players in fantasy right now with fourth-round value since the break. Iguodala does a little bit of everything, he's making his free throws at a reasonable rate and his 1.5 steals are top notch for a waiver add. Iggy should hold value for at least a couple weeks, but beware of some possible rest. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 10:45 pm
  • Khris Middleton scores 11 points
    Khris Middleton scored 11 points with two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: The minutes were solid and he likely would've been in the mid-30s had the Bucks been in this game. Middleton is heavily involved in the offense and is playing on the ball a lot more than expected after he said he was focusing more on shooting late in his rehab. We're not expecting him to rest until the Bucks have something clinched, so keep rolling Middleton out there. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 10:33 pm
  • Joe Ingles scores 10 points in start
    Joe Ingles scored 10 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: The Jazz may continue to hold Rodney Hood (knee) out to play it safe for next month, which should allow Ingles to get minutes in the 30s. He was tied for the league lead in 3-point percentage, but going 1-of-5 tonight dropped him to second behind Otto Porter. Ingles is a decent player to ride in the short term, but his value will likely drop once the Jazz are whole again. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 8:27 pm
  • Kent Bazemore suffers right knee contusion
    Kent Bazemore suffered a right knee contusion in the fourth quarter on Saturday.

    Advice: He drove to the basket and his had some contact on the drive, but he was walking around fine. He did not return because the game was basically over after his injury. Bazemore did not go to the locker room right away and had the trainer look at him on the bench. Bazemore finished with 12 points, two assists and one block in 32 minutes. This injury didn't look serious. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 5:23 pm
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play on Sunday
    Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play against the Blazers on Sunday.

    Advice: He does not have a timetable to return right now and coach Erik Spoelstra had some comments about his shooting guard on Saturday. "He was in the locker room doing treatment pretty much all night, last night, and then early this morning," Spoelstra said. The Heat won't put a grade on it, but it's fair to guess he's going to miss multiple games. With him out, Josh Richardson makes sense as a pickup in standard leagues while Wayne Ellington could be a scoring and threes specialist. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 11:37 am
  • Rodney Hood (knee) will not play Saturday
    Rodney Hood (knee) will not play Saturday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Hood was removed from Wednesday's game due to knee soreness and was unable to suit up on Thursday. Joe Ingles started in place of Hood on Thursday and logged 36 minutes, finishing with 12 points, four rebounds and four assists. Joe Johnson could also see a few extra minutes with Hood sidelined. If you still own Hood, there are probably more attractive, less frustrating options on your league's waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 9:02 am
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) without a timeline
    Coach Erik Spoelstra said Dion Waiters (ankle) is currently without a timeline to return.

    Advice: Waiters sprained his left ankle late in the second quarter and had to be carried off the court. Coach Spo said the sprain is "similar to the way he did last time. There's no timeline on it. There's no way to really tell until we get to the next day." The previous sprain Spo is referring to sidelined Waiters for three games over six days. We should have an update this weekend, but the safe assumption is that Waiters will likely miss at least a couple of games. Josh Richardson is expected to soak up most of Waiters minutes. Wayne Ellington should also see a bump in playing time. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 6:18 am
  • 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 Mar 17, 10:55 pm
    New Player Note
    Jeff Green Orl - SG,SF,PF
    Injured
     
  • Khris Middleton scores season-high 30 points
    Khris Middleton scored a season-high 30 points in Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: He missed his only two 3-point attempts, but finished 11-of-18 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line with two rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes. Middleton has played 30+ minutes in nine out of his last 10 games and hasn't rested since Feb. 27, so double check to make sure he's active for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors in Golden State. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 10:24 pm
  • Nick Young ejected on Friday
    Nick Young was ejected from Friday's game vs. the Bucks for shoving Malcolm Brogdon.

    Advice: The shove resulted in his second technical and ruined what could've been a great night for Swaggy P. He started at SG and played through a sprained left ring finger, finishing with 16 points, three rebounds, two assists and four triples in 29 minutes. The Lakers are still experimenting with different lineups and Young will have a low floor on the nights when his shot isn't falling, so he's just a 3-point specialist. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 9:40 pm
