  • Joakim Noah scores seven points in loss
    Joakim Noah scored seven points with 17 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 33 minutes against the Hawks on Monday.

    Advice: This comes on the second half of a back-to-back set, which is way more playing time than he's played previously with 21.8 minutes per game on no rest. Noah will likely see a dip in playing time at some point for a number of reasons, so he's only worth a look in 14-team leagues with his recent solid play. Rotoworld.com 45 minutes ago
  • Sergio Rodriguez will start Monday vs. Bucks
    Sergio Rodriguez will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Milwaukee, with T.J. McConnell (wrist) unavailable.

    Advice: With McConnell on the sidelines, Rodriguez may be able to see his minutes closer to the 30-minute mark, although head coach Brett Brown may want to get an extended look at Chasson Randle who is in the final week of his 10-day contract. Still, Rodriguez is someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer for those looking for a boost in the assist category. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:09 pm
  • Joel Embiid starting, Okafor to the bench
    Joel Embiid (rest) will return to the starting lineup on Monday, sending Jahlil Okafor back to the bench.

    Advice: Embiid was rested on the second leg of a back-to-back set on Saturday, but he'll be back in action with his usual 28-minute workload for MLK day. Nerlens Noel will be serving as Embiid's backup today, so Okafor could have a tough time finding meaningful minutes. Embiid, however, is a must-start guy every time he takes the court. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:37 am
  • Allen Crabbe will return to the bench Monday
    Allen Crabbe will return to the bench for Monday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: Moe Harkless (calf) is back in the starting lineup, so Crabbe's run as a starter has concluded. That being said, Crabbe has actually been better as a reserve this season, so the demotion to the second unit shouldn't have a significant impact on his value. Still, he's only worth owning as a deep league 3-point specialist. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:58 am
  • Revenge: Tim Hardaway Jr. will start vs. NYK
    Tim Hardaway Jr. will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Revenge game! Dwight Howard is resting, so the Hawks are going to go small with Paul Millsap at center. THJ was already trending up before this news with averages of 16.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 3.0 triples per game in January, so give him a look if those numbers mesh well with your fantasy team. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:50 am
  • Dwight Howard is resting Monday vs. NYK
    Dwight Howard is resting Monday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Howard logged 32 minutes against the Bucks on Sunday night, so the Hawks are going to give him the day off since the Knicks don't have the most imposing frontcourt with Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) out. Paul Millsap will slide over to center and is a strong DFS play, while Tim Hardaway Jr. will move into the starting lineup. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:47 am
  • Josh Richardson to miss at least two weeks
    Josh Richardson (foot) will miss at least the next two weeks of action.

    Advice: We were waiting for a timetable but this is the best we are going to get. Unless you can stash Richardson in an IR spot, standard-league owners in a bad spot should probably move on. With that said, we still like Richardson's outlook for the rest of the season. Dion Waiters will get the bulk of the SG minutes in Richardson's absence and is worth a look if you need points. The Heat will also sign PF Okaro White to a 10-day deal on Monday. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:46 am

  • Hoiberg still confident in Doug McDermott
    Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg encouraged Doug McDermott to shoot with confidence before Sunday's game vs. Memphis.

    Advice: "The big thing for Doug is to trust it," Hoiberg said. "We have a lot of confidence in Doug. Everyone in this organization does. He needs to continue to take them when they’re there. We need him to make shots. When he and Nikola [Mirotic] are shooting the ball well, we generally play well.’’ McDermott responded with a career-high 31 points in the win over the Grizzlies after a brutal four-game slump, but McBuckets is just a 3-point specialist in standard leagues until he proves that he can string several good performances together.

  • Luol Deng returned to action on Sunday January 15. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:19 am
  • Ish Smith back in Pistons' rotation Sunday
    Ish Smith was back in the Pistons' rotation on Sunday, coming off the bench for six points on 3-of-7 shooting, six assists, two assists and one rebound in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Stan Van Gundy said he wanted to give Smith a game off "to sit and recalibrate," though it's not clear what the veteran guard was 'recalibrating' from in the first place. Smith would only be worth considering if Kentavious Caldwell-Pope's shoulder injury proves to be a long-term issue. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:39 pm
  • Luol Deng plays team-high 36 minutes
    Luol Deng returned from a rest day on Sunday with two points, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal, making 1-of-6 shots in a team-high 36 minutes of action.

    Advice: Deng has had some nice stretches for the Lakers this year, but his rest-of-season outlook is shaky at best. As a 13-year veteran on a team that should increasingly emphasize player development down the stretch, Deng is a borderline cut in 12-team leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Reggie Bullock quiet as fill-in starter
    Reggie Bullock started for the short-handed Pistons on Sunday, but he committed five fouls in 29 minutes to finish with four points, one rebound, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) and Jon Leuer (knee) were both out tonight, and the Pistons didn't want to go big with Aron Baynes in a matchup vs. the Lakers. Bullock's playing time was robust, considering his foul trouble, and he's just a short-term option in deeper leagues while KCP is out of commission. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver plays 31 minutes vs. OKC
    Anthony Tolliver scored 10 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Thunder on Sunday.

    Advice: Tolliver started in his fourth consecutive game tonight and has played over 30 minutes in each of his starts. During that stretch, he is averaging 33.3 minutes, 12.5 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.3 treys per game. Coach Dave Joerger likes to mix it up with his starting five, so at any moment Tolliver could head back to his bench role. However, until that happens, he is worth considering in deeper leagues for fantasy owners in need of 3-pointers and steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:27 pm
  • Doug McDermott scores career-high 31 points
    Doug McDermott scored 20 of his career-high 31 points during in the second quarter of Sunday's road win in Charlotte, finishing 9-of-16 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line.

    Advice: McDermott caught fire in the first half and helped the Bulls escape with a 108-104 road win, benefiting from extra minutes with Nikola Mirotic (illness) unavailable tonight. The third-year SF out of Creighton has had some nice moments over the past month, but tonight's eruption (against a tough Grizzlies' defense) doesn't necessarily make him worth owning. He added six boards, one steal and one block tonight, but for standard-league purposes he's only worth owning if you need a 3-point specialist. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Rudy Gay double-doubles vs. Thunder
    Rudy Gay scored 22 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes on Sunday against the Thunder.

    Advice: This was his second consecutive double-double and his fourth of the season. He continues to have a nice January, averaging 35.4 minutes, 19.4 points, seven rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.8 blocks per game. There is no reason to think he will slow down any time soon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
  • Tony Allen solid in 33 minutes Sunday
    Tony Allen chipped in across the board on Sunday with four points, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in 33 minutes.

    Advice: The Grizzlies are now 8-13 in games they've trailed at halftime this season, which isn't shocking for a team that relies on their defense to win games. The veteran Allen isn't an obvious fantasy option, but he's worth owning with averages of 5.5 boards, 1.8 steals, and 10.1 points per game on 49.0 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:12 pm
  • Zach LaVine scores 11 points w/ three treys
    Zach LaVine (hip) scored 11 points on 3-of-8 shooting in his return from a two-game absence on Sunday, adding three 3-pointers, five boards, one assist, one steal and one turnover in 34 minutes.

    Advice: LaVine looked a bit rusty out there, and he didn't connect on any of his attempts from inside the arc, but the heavy minutes would suggest that he'll be just fine for Tuesday's game in San Antonio. LaVine popped off for 25 points with four triples in his last game against the Spurs, so his owners can expect a bounce-back performance. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:21 pm
  • Reggie Bullock will start Sunday vs. Lakers
    Reggie Bullock will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Lakers, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) unavailable.

    Advice: This likely means that Aron Baynes is headed back to the bench. Bullock is a solid defender, but a pretty low usage rate guy, so he's not all that attractive of an option despite the increased opportunity as a starter. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:39 am
  • Josh Richardson (foot) listed as week-to-week
    Erik Spoelstra implied on Sunday that Josh Richardson (foot) is not close to a return, saying his return to action can be measured in weeks, not days.

    Advice: "It is still only a sprain, he is getting better but he still is in a boot," Spoelstra said. Miami was granted a hardship exception on Sunday which means that an independent doctor has deemed that Richardson will spend at least another two weeks on the sidelines. He hasn't quite taken off this season, so we won't blame you for making the cut if you're struggling. Dion Waiters looks like Miami's starting two-guard moving forward, and he's worth a look in points leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:07 am

  • Zach LaVine (hip) is active for Sunday
    Zach LaVine (hip) is active for Sunday's game vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: He will be returning from a two-game absence, but there's no word of any restrictions. LaVine made it though warmups just fine and is safe to deploy in season-long leagues. We'll let you know how he looks after the game. Brandon Rush will return to the bench. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:05 am
  • Zach LaVine (hip) is a game-time call
    Zach LaVine (hip) is a game-time call vs. the Mavericks on Sunday.

    Advice: He's going to go through warmups and will play if his hip feels good according to coach Tom Thibodeau. If LaVine is able to return from a two-game absence, Brandon Rush will shift back to the bench. LaVine was also a game-time on Friday vs. the Thunder, so don't consider him as a lock to play. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:41 am
  • Doug McDermott scores just eight
    Doug McDermott scored eight points with seven rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in 20 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Advice: Coach Fred Hoiberg doesn't quite trust him as much as he did earlier this month when he was going no-PG lineups late and only giving him three fourth-quarter minutes. McDermott should be in a fantastic spot on Sunday with Nikola Mirotic (illness) and Dwyane Wade (rest) out, so the opportunity will be there. While he has been bad, it's worth a mention Hoiberg said McBuckets made "about 30 in a row" in a workout on Friday. He's a borderline cut, but you may want to wait to see what happens on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:02 pm
  • Luol Deng (rest) will not play on Saturday
    Luol Deng (rest) will not play on Saturday against the Clippers.

    Advice: It's just rest for the veteran on the front end of a back-to-back set. Deng has been consistently getting around 30 minutes before the Lakers were blown out on Thursday, but he'll likely see fewer minutes as the season goes on. He's still worth owning. For today, Brandon Ingram should be sliding into the first unit while there are more three-guard lineups today -- the Clippers should also go small a ton. Julius Randle also gets a slight bump today. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:14 am
  • Zach LaVine (hip) questionable for Sunday
    Zach LaVine (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Mavs.

    Advice: LaVine has missed each of the Wolves last two games, but appears to be inching closer to a return. Brandon Rush has started in place of LaVine and has played surprisingly well. Rush scored 12 points on Wednesday and then backed that up with 11 points and four rebounds in a team-high 40 minutes on Friday. Still, Rush would be a risky DFS punt on Sunday, even if LaVine does not play. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:11 am
  • Joel Embiid (rest) will not play Saturday
    As expected, Joel Embiid (rest) will not play Saturday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: As had been the plan all along, the Sixers will sit out their budding star on the second night of a back-to-back. It will be interesting to see how coach Brett Brown handles the void left by Embiid. Nerlens Noel has found his groove playing with the second unit, and Brown may, therefore, choose to have Noel come off the bench Saturday as well. This means we may get a look at Jahlil Okafor, who has played just once this month. Richaun Holmes is the other candidate to draw a start. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:34 am
  • Joakim Noah playing his best ball of season
    Joakim Noah has been hampered by a sore shoulder over the last 10 days, but is still playing his best basketball of the season.

    Advice: In the 11 games the Knicks have played since Christmas, Noah is averaging 11.1 rebounds and 8.0 points (on 57.4 percent shooting). And despite dealing with a nagging shoulder issue, Noah feels there is still plenty of room left for improvement. "I feel like I can still do better," Noah said. "I feel like there’s another level that I want to get to and have to keep pushing and getting better." Noah will likely see more minutes if Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) continues to miss time. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:59 am
  • Rudy Gay scores 23 points in loss to Cavs
    Rudy Gay scored 23 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, four blocks and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

    Advice: After all the time off due to a hip injury, Gay has turned it up over his last four. In that span, he averaged 18.8 points, 6.3 boards, 2.5 assists, 1.8 blocks, 1.3 steals and 1.8 treys. He should feast the rest of the way while he's on the Kings roster, but the trade rumors and rest will be a pain for his owners. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:50 pm
  • Tony Allen scores 22 points in a big win
    Tony Allen scored a season-high 22 points with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and three turnovers in 25 minutes against the Rockets during a 110-105 win.

    Advice: He made his first eight attempts and finished 9-of-10 in another massive win for the Grizzlies. They were down 16 on the road in this game and now have five wins against the Warriors, Cavs and Rockets combined on the year. Mike Conley was effective as per usual with 17 points, six rebounds, nine assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:41 pm
  • Reggie Bullock returns from 25-game absence
    Reggie Bullock returned from a 25-game absence on Friday vs. the Jazz and scored seven points on 3-of-6 shooting with two rebounds, three assists and two steals.

    Advice: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) was out and the game was a blowout, but it was still a surprise to see Bullock log a season-high 26 minutes right out of the gate. Coach Stan Van Gundy loves him and the Pistons don't have great depth, so maybe he earns some minutes going forward. Most fantasy owners can ignore him for now. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:28 pm
  • Allen Crabbe scores seven points in start
    Allen Crabbe started in place of Moe Harkless (calf) on Friday vs. the Magic and scored seven points on 3-of-10 shooting with three boards, two assists, one steal and one triple in 33 minutes.

    Advice: When he starts he has to compete for touches with Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum, so it's not a huge surprise that he averages more points per game (11.0) as a reserve than when he starts (10.1). Harkless is day-to-day, so leave Crabbe on the wire outside of deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:17 pm
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. scores 23 points
    Tim Hardway Jr. scored 23 points with two rebounds, two assists, one block, three steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: We have a four-game sample on Hardaway post-Kyle Korver and it's going well. In those four, he averaged 17.0 points, 3.0 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.3 treys. That's good enough to make him a top-50 player in that span. Yeah, he won't be this good, but he has to be picked up in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:37 pm
  • TTP: Embiid scores 24, 76ers win 3 in a row
    Joel Embiid scored 24 points in a 102-93 win over the Hornets on Friday, adding eight rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks.

    Advice: In case you missed it, he will not play on Saturday against the Wizards. Embiid has just been insane with at least 20 points in eight straight despite his minutes limit and going to the line 14 times helped him tonight. Plus, his 76ers now have the longest active winning streak in the Eastern Conference with three games. He's already elite in his rookie season. Just quickly on the off-court stuff, The Process also came out in the starting lineups to the WWE's Triple H's theme music and spit his water out like the wrestler does before matches (video in link below). Yes, this is about basketball. As always, trust The Process. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:36 pm
  • Allen Crabbe will start for Harkless (calf)
    Allen Crabbe will start in place of Moe Harkless (calf) on Friday vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Barring a surprise, Harkless is likely day-to-day so there's no real need to add in Crabbe in standard leagues. In five previous starts this season, Crabbe averaged 11.8 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.8 3-pointers. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:10 pm
  • Sergio Rodriguez scores 11 in 16 minutes
    Sergio Rodriguez scored 11 points with one rebound, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 16 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

    Advice: T.J. McConnell clearly has the starting job locked up and looks like he'll get 30-33 minutes most nights, so Rodriguez will be picking up the scraps. If you haven't dropped him yet in a standard league, go for it. He may have value in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:03 pm
  • Zach LaVine (hip) will be inactive on Friday
    Zach LaVine (hip) will be inactive on Friday against the Thunder.

    Advice: They ruled him out somewhat early for his game-time decision, so he could miss the next game on Sunday against the Mavs. The matchup is a little different today for the Wolves because the Thunder obviously don't shoot anywhere close to as many threes as the Rockets, but Brandon Rush should still get some heavy run. Shabazz Muhammad has also stepped up. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:03 pm
  • Joel Embiid on a 28-minute limit again
    Joel Embiid (ankle) will have a 28-minute limit against the Hornets on Friday.

    Advice: The 76ers will be limiting him for the foreseeable future and he is not expected to play on Saturday. Embiid has been awesome in his last seven games, posting a 37.9 usage rate and an 58.4 true shooting percentage -- also a 16.3 rebound rate. He could have a monster game tonight with the Hornets not having the personnel to stop him. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:20 pm
  • Doug McDermott says he's fine mentally
    Doug McDermott said he's fine mentally and is "just not making shots right now."

    Advice: After the Bulls were closing with him earlier this month in no-PG sets, the fact that Paul Zipser closed out the game on Thursday over McDermott is a really bad sign. He's had his biggest chance of his career lately, but made just 18.2 percent from the field in his last three. McDermott has certainly been open on his treys with only getting contested on 17.4 percent of those, so he just needs to knock shots down. Maybe he bounces back on Saturday, so his owners should give him one more game unless there is something irresistible on the wire. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:05 pm
  • Reggie Bullock unlikely to play
    Reggie Bullock (personal) is unlikely to play on Friday against the Jazz.

    Advice: He is back with the team and there is a chance he plays. If he doesn't, Stanley Johnson would be looking at big minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:49 pm
  • Josh Richardson (foot) is 'getting better'
    Josh Richardson (sprained left foot) will his third consecutive game on Friday, but is "getting better" according to coach Erik Spoelstra.

    Advice: Richardson is still in a walking boot but appears to be moving in the right direction. "He's getting better," Spoelstra said. "We wanted to monitor him and see if we could take the next step and get him ready. He is finding some relief." We will have to wait for a more formal update from the team regarding J-Rich possibly returning to the lineup. After Friday, the Heat don't play again until next Tuesday.

  • Joel Embiid (ankle) remains probable Friday
    Joel Embiid (ankle) went through shootaround and said he expects to play Friday vs. Charlotte.

    Advice: Embiid said the ankle he tweaked on Wednesday night feels "fine." The plan is to play Embiid on Friday and then rest him Saturday. Embiid has scored at least 20 points in seven straight games and is averaging 23.4 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.0 blocks over that stretch. Make sure he is locked in starting lineups for Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:25 am
  • Zach LaVine (hip) a game-time decision Friday
    Zach LaVine (hip) said "I don't know" when he asked after shootaround if he would play Friday night vs. OKC.

    Advice: Here is the full quote from LaVine: "I don't know. Want to make sure I'm ok... Make sure I'm 100 percent." It seems he is headed in the right direction, but it would be sheer speculation to try and predict if he will return on Friday night. It will come down to a game-time decision. For wat it's worth, he is listed as questionable. If LaVine can't play, Brandon Rush, Shabazz Muhammad and Nemanja Bjelica should see an uptick in minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:16 am
  • Joakim Noah dealing with a sore shoulder
    Joakim Noah is dealing with discomfort in his sore right shoulder.

    Advice: Noah has been wincing in pain on occasions during games and often has his shoulder wrapped in ice when he's on the bench. "He’s had it looked at," coach Jeff Hornacek said. "There’s just some little stuff in there. When he lifts his arm in one certain way he feels it catch." Asked about his shoulder, Noah said, "It’s fine." Although his offensive output has been frustratingly inconsistent, Noah is averaging 11.1 rebounds over the Knicks last 11 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:55 am
  • Luol Deng scores just three
    Luol Deng scored three points with one rebound, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes during a 134-94 loss to the Spurs on Thursday.

    Advice: This game should basically be thrown out for everyone except Julius Randle. Deng almost certainly has seen his peak pass this season, but he has played 30.3 minutes per game in his previous three games, so his fantasy value is still alive and well. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:38 pm
  • Joakim Noah double-doubles vs. Bulls
    Joakim Noah scored 12 points with 15 rebounds, one assist and one block in 27 minutes on Thursday night against Chicago.

    Advice: Noah came out to play vs. his former team, finishing one rebound shy of tying his season high of 16 boards in a game. He is playing through a sore shoulder, but it did not appear to be affecting him in tonight’s matchup. His minutes are inconsistent, but Noah is a good source of rebounds and can help fantasy owners who are struggling in that category. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:59 pm
  • Doug McDermott goes 0-for-5 in 17 minutes
    Doug McDermott came off the bench and played just 17 minutes, missing all five of his shots and scoring just two points in Thursday's 104-89 loss to the Knicks.

    Advice: After hitting 6-of-9 shots for 17 points on Jan. 4, McBuckets has hit just 10-of-39 shots over his last four games, scoring seven or fewer in his last three. Coach Fred Hoiberg said after the game that McDermott's too good a shooter to stay in this funk for much longer, but if he was actually owned in your league prior to this week, he's likely been dropped. Just keep an eye on him, as he's not a must-own player. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:54 pm
  • Reggie Bullock expected back w/ team
    Coach Stan Van Gundy said that Reggie Bullock (personal) will rejoin the Pistons on Friday in Salt Lake City.

    Advice: Bullock who has missed the last 25 games with a torn meniscus, was attending a family matter and is expected to be back with the team on Friday. He can be left on waivers, as he will likely not have a big role in the Pistons rotation. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:30 pm
  • Josh Richardson (foot) doubtful for Friday
    Josh Richardson (foot) will not play in Friday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: He is still in a walking boot and will likely miss more time. The good news is there is no structural damage on Richardson, but he's typically been a slower healer than others. Richardson was playing really well now that he's found his shot, so he's still a stash candidate. Rodney McGruder and Dion Waiters will be playing more with Waiters having far more fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:32 pm
    Injured
     
  • Zach LaVine (hip) questionable for Friday
    Zach LaVine (hip) is questionable for Friday against the Thunder.

    Advice: He did some rehab work on Thursday and is feeling better. LaVine was ruled out about an hour before Wednesday's game due to his hip contusion injury on Monday, so he should be close. LaVine is tied with Kyle Lowry for minutes per game with two DNPs on the season. If he can't go, Brandon Rush should get another chance to start. Shabazz Muhammad and Nemanja Bjelica would also benefit. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:15 pm
  • Joel Embiid (left ankle) probable for Friday
    Joel Embiid (left ankle) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets, but will not play on Saturday vs. the Hornets on the second night of a back-to-back.

    Advice: He missed practice on Thursday to get treatment on his tweaked left ankle, but the 76ers are just being cautious. Embiid briefly left Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks, but returned in the second half and finished with 21 points (7-of-20 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs), a career-high 14 rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes. Owners of The Process can expect to have him in their lineups on Friday. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:10 am
  • Allen Crabbe scores 24 points in win vs. CLE
    Allen Crabbe was on fire early in a win over the Cavs on Wednesday, scoring 24 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: Even off the bench, he was the first player in double-digit scoring. Crabbe has been loving the Moda Center with 30 points in his last game there on Sunday. He's also been way more efficient at home all season, posting a 65.7 true shooting percentage (TS%) at home compared to a 56.2 TS% on the road. Keep that in mind if you're looking to use Crabbe as a punt in DFS. He's more of a 16-team guy in season-long leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:36 pm
  • Joel Embiid (ankle) OK after injury scare
    Joel Embiid (left ankle) survived an injury scare during Wednesday's game, which he finished with 21 points (7-of-20 FGs, 6-of-7 FTs), a career-high 14 rebounds, one steal and one block in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Embiid exited after twisting his left ankle, but he started the second half and the fact that he returned suggests Philly had zero concerns about an aggravation. Ankle sprains often get worse overnight, so we'll keep an eye on him prior to Friday's home game vs. Charlotte, but owners can anticipate having him ready to go. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:14 pm
  • Joakim Noah logs 20 minutes vs. Philly
    Joakim Noah finished Wednesday's game with seven points (3-of-6 FGs, 1-of-1 FTs), six rebounds, two steals, one block and zero turnovers in 20 minutes of action.

    Advice: Noah had a wrap on his right shoulder when he wasn't playing, and admitted recently that the surgically-repaired shoulder is "always there" as a background concern. The slumping Knicks recently held a team meeting to discuss their issues, and they may need to meet a few more times after tonight's disastrous 98-97 loss to the Sixers. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:06 pm
  • Trust The Process: Joel Embiid starts 3Q
    Joel Embiid (ankle) started the third quarter on Wednesday.

    Advice: He looks like he's OK. Trust The Process. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:23 pm
  • Joel Embiid (leg) limps to the locker room
    Joel Embiid limped to the locker room in the second quarter on Wednesday and will be available to return.

    Advice: He went up for a layup and his left foot slipped on the court to cause an awkward change in direction. Embiid limped up and down the court for two possessions before the 76ers took a timeout. He limped to the locker room under his own power with the limp almost going away at the end of the hallway. For now it looks like he's OK. Also, this isn't to his bad foot. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:06 pm
  • Zach LaVine (hip) ruled out for Wednesday
    Zach LaVine (hip) has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.

    Advice: This is far from surprising with LaVine being listed as doubtful and limited at shootaround. With LaVine watching from the sidelines, Namanja Bjelica, Shabazz Muhammad and Kris Dunn will all see a boost in value with Bjelica being the preferable DFS target. For now, we'll be considering LaVine questionable for Friday's game against OKC. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:07 pm
  • Zach LaVine (hip) a game-time call vs. HOU
    Zach LaVine (hip) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup with the Rockets.

    Advice: LaVine will go through his pregame routine before making a final decision, but he wasn't very active at shootaround and is being listed as doubtful, so things aren't trending in a positive direction here. If LaVine is out, Nemanja Bjelica could be forced into heavy minutes with Shabazz Muhammad and Kris Dunn also getting some extra run. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:41 pm
  • Rudy Gay scores 11 points in win
    Rudy Gay scored 11 points on 3-of-11 shooting in Tuesday's win over the Pistons.

    Advice: He managed to play 38 minutes despite picking up five fouls, adding seven rebounds, four assists, one block, three steals and one 3-pointer. The Kings are 9th in the West with a 16-22 record and the Blazers are 8th with a 17-23 record, so the Kings may be tempted to hold onto Gay past the trade deadline because it's no secret that they're desperate to get into the postseason. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:43 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver scores 17 w/ three triples
    Anthony Tolliver scored 17 points with three triples, four rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes against the Pistons on Tuesday.

    Advice: The 31-year-old sharpshooter took seven attempts from deep and finished 4-of-11 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line. At first glance this looks like a fluke, but Tolliver actually had 16 points and three more triples in his previous outing. He's played 36 and 32 minutes in those two games, so feel free to give him a glance if you strictly need a couple 3-pointers. Just keep in mind that he's still Anthony Tolliver. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:39 pm
  • Dwight Howard double-doubles in easy win
    Dwight Howard double-doubled in Tuesday's easy win over the Nets, finishing with 14 points and 16 rebounds.

    Advice: He was a monster on the glass and seven of his rebounds were on the offensive end. Howard hit 6-of-9 from the field with one block, but cooled off from the free throw line where he knocked down just 2-of-8. Howard was shooting 70.0 percent from the line in his previous four games, so hopefully he can get back on track vs. the Celtics on Friday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:01 pm
  • Josh Richardson (sprained foot) out Tuesday
    Josh Richardson (sprained left foot) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: He was in a walking boot on Monday, so we have no idea why the Heat waited this long to rule him out. With only one game left on the schedule for the Heat this week, owners in a tough spot may need to move on despite Richardson's upside and great outlook for the rest of the season. Wayne Ellington and Dion Waiters will both get a bump in the short term, but their upside is limited. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:37 pm

  • Doug McDermott will start Tuesday vs. WAS
    Doug McDermott will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: Dwyane Wade (rest), Nikola Mirotic (flu) and Jimmy Butler (flu) are all out tonight, so McDermott will likely be working with a higher than usual usage rate. He's someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or DFS punt play, particularly with a matchup against one of the worst teams in the league at defending the small forward position. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:56 pm
  • Report: Hawks shopping Tim Hardaway Jr.
    The Hawks are reportedly shopping Tim Hardaway Jr.

    Advice: Hardaway Jr. can reportedly be had for just some second-round picks, so Atlanta should be able to strike a deal with someone. The Hawks are reportedly going with the trade route because they don't want to pay Hardaway Jr. as a restricted free agent this offseason, but they also don't want to lose him for nothing. If the Hawks are serious about getting Hardaway Jr. off the books, it would make sense to start showcasing him with the second unit. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:43 pm
  • Doug McDermott scores seven in 25 minutes
    Doug McDermott scored seven points in 25 minutes against the Thunder on Monday.

    Advice: He flopped big time, hitting just 2-of-6 shots from the field and adding two boards and a triple. However, the Bulls play four more times in Week 12 and Jimmy Butler (illness) and Dwyane Wade (rest) are both out for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards, so McDermott will likely start and see a massive workload. He averaged 13.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 2.0 3-pointers in his previous five games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:41 pm
  • Josh Richardson (foot) in a walking boot
    Josh Richardson (sprained left foot) was spotted wearing a full walking boot on Monday.

    Advice: Richardson said that he initially injured his foot during Dec. 30's game against the Celtics, and after trying to play through it, the pain only got worse. X-rays and an MRI came back negative, so he's not dealing with any structural damage, but head coach Erik Spoelstra acknowledged that it's unlikely Richardson will be able to suit up for Tuesday's game in Golden State. With Richardson on the sidelines, Wayne Ellington and Dion Waiters will see an uptick in minutes, with Goran Dragic doing the heavy lifting on offense. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:31 pm

  • Joakim Noah says he's getting into a rhythm
    Joakim Noah said that he's finally finding his form in New York.

    Advice: "I feel like I'm playing better. I feel like I'm starting to get into a better rhythm," Noah said. "It's tough. This team is going through some adversity right now. This is when you find out who plays through it and who doesn't." Noah added that he feels healthy for the most part, but did say that his surgically-repaired shoulder is "always there." He's averaging 8.6 points, 11.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steal and 0.8 blocks over his last five games, but his ceiling isn't as high with Kristaps Porzingis healthy again. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 8:17 am
  • Doug McDermott's confidence is rising
    Doug McDermott said that his confidence is on the rise.

    Advice: "It's taken some time and the last two games we've been able to really get going," McDermott said of the bench's recent success. "It's a great feeling having the trust from the coaches, [Dwyane] Wade and Jimmy [Butler] and those guys, to be out there with them. We're just staying confident, staying ready." The Bulls closed Saturday's game vs. the Raptors with McDermott on the floor and they had a lot of success with a Butler-McDermott screen-and-roll action. McDermott is averaging 13.6 points, 4.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five, and he's a great pickup in standard leagues with five games on the schedule this week. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 6:52 am
  • Josh Richardson (foot) unsure of return date
    Josh Richardson (foot) said he's unsure of when he will be able to return.

    Advice: "I don’t know," Richardson said on Sunday. "They didn’t tell me exactly. I don’t know. Probably I guess whenever it starts feeling better." Richardson revealed that he suffered the injury on Dec. 30, so he's played through the issue in four games. X-rays and an MRI were negative, but the Heat are going to be cautious. "Thankfully, this isn’t a significant injury," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "Soft tissue. So, hopefully he’ll be able to come back sooner than later." The Heat only play twice in Week 12, but look for Wayne Ellington and Dion Waiters to play more if Richardson can't go. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 6:29 am

  • Sergio Rodriguez returned to action on Sunday January 8. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 11:59 pm
  • Luol Deng (biceps) looks fine in 31 minutes
    Luol Deng (right biceps tendinitis) scored 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting in 31 minutes on Sunday.

    Advice: Deng was on the injury report as 'probable' but there was never any doubt about his status. Deploy him as usual vs. the Blazers on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 10:42 pm
  • Allen Crabbe pours in career-high 30 points
    Allen Crabbe scored a career-high 30 points on Sunday, making 12-of-15 shots with a 5-of-5 mark from downtown in a heartbreaking home loss to the Pistons.

    Advice: Crabbe added one rebound, one assist and one steal in a season-high 43 minutes off the bench. He's scored double-digit points in six straight games, one shy of his career high, but hasn't offered much fantasy value beyond efficient scoring and 3-pointers. Feel free to deploy him until he cools off. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 10:33 pm
  • Reggie Bullock (meniscus) close to return
    Reggie Bullock (torn meniscus) didn't play on Sunday, but coach Stan Van Gundy said he's "trending toward being ready."

    Advice: "I think he wants to get in a couple practices," Van Gundy said on Saturday. "Quite honestly, I’d be comfortable putting him in a game right now." Stanley Johnson played 25 minutes on Sunday while Darrun Hilliard picked up a DNP-CD, and Van Gundy seems eager to have an alternative wing player in his second unit. We'll consider Bullock day-to-day going forward. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 10:25 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver starts, scores 16 in 32 mins
    Anthony Tolliver started Sunday's game and finished with 16 points, five rebounds, two steals and 3-pointers in 32 minutes of action.

    Advice: The veteran displaced Matt Barnes tonight, but he's just as likely to head back to the bench in Sacramento's next game. There should be better 3-point specialists on your waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 9:53 pm
  • Rudy Gay scores 23 points w/ complete line
    In his second game back from a hip injury, Rudy Gay dropped 23 points in 35 minutes vs. the Warriors, making 9-of-17 shots with two 3-pointers, three assists, two steals and two blocks.

    Advice: Gay is averaging 28.0 points since returning and the hip injury should be in the rearview, although the Kings did list him as 'probable' on the injury report tonight. The veteran is a staple of trade rumors and there's a good chance that he'll finish the season with another team, but in the meantime he's cruising along with mid-round value on a per-game basis. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 9:53 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver, Garrett Temple start Sunday
    Anthony Tolliver and Garrett Temple will start vs. the Warriors on Sunday, with Matt Barnes and Ty Lawson shifting to the second unit.

    Advice: The Kings' starting lineup is perpetually in flux, so this is no surprise. Lawson is the only guy in this group with sustained fantasy appeal, but check back after the game to see how Tolliver and Temple fare vs. the Warriors. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 6:09 pm
  • Joel Embiid scores 20 points with two blocks
    Joel Embiid scored 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting Sunday, to go with five boards, four assists, two blocks and three turnovers in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Foul trouble limited Embiid’s minutes tonight, but he still managed to come through with a solid stat line thanks to his 33.9 usage rate. Since Embiid’s minutes cap was lifted to 28 a night, he’s jumped into a top-40 evaluation in standard 9-cat leagues (and top-25 in 8-cat formats), and his value should continue to trend northward as his minutes limit is further eased. He's so impressive that he had the Brooklyn fans chanting, "Trust the Process" as Philly secured the road win. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 12:18 pm
  • Sergio Rodriguez logs 12 mins off the bench
    Sergio Rodriguez (ankle) logged 12 minutes off the bench in his return to action on Sunday, hitting 2-of-6 shots on his way to four points, three assists and one turnover.

    Advice: Rodriguez was eased into things after spending the previous three games on the sidelines with an ankle injury, but as the lesser defender between T.J. McConnell and himself, there are no guarantees he’ll immediately be re-inserted back into the starting five once he’s fully up to speed. As a reserve in Philly, Rodriguez can remain on the wire in most settings. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 11:54 am
  • Richardson, Babbitt ruled out for Sunday
    Josh Richardson (sprained left foot) and Luke Babbitt (illness) will not play Sunday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Both X-rays and an MRI came back negative on Richardson's sprained left foot, and it's worth noting that it was his right knee and ankle that gave him problems at the beginning of the year, so perhaps this new issue is due to overcompensating. For now, we'll consider both Babbitt and Richardson questionable for Tuesday's game in Golden State, and with both those guys on the sidelines Sunday, we should see a ton of Wayne Ellington, Dion Waiters, Tyler Johnson and James Johnson. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 11:06 am
    Injured
     
  • Sergio Rodriguez (ankle) is available Sunday
    Sergio Rodriguez (ankle) is available for Sunday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: He's going to come off the bench behind T.J. McConnell and that move will likely stick because McConnell has been lighting it up with the first unit. Rodirguez's minutes will take a hit in the second unit and he's just an assist specialist for now. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 7:36 am
  • Josh Richardson (foot) listed as questionable
    Josh Richardson (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: ESPN's Chris Haynes reported on Saturday that Richardson won't play, so the SG is probably closer to doubtful. "They took an X-ray last night after the game and that was fine," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said after Saturday’s practice. "But he is sore, so we’re going to take him to get an MRI, cross our fingers." The Heat are calling it a soft tissue injury to his foot and an MRI came back negative after Spoelstra's comments, so the SG is day-to-day. He's been playing a ton of minutes lately, so Wayne Ellington and Dion Waiters would be interesting streaming options if he misses time. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 6:10 am

  • Dwight Howard scores 15 with 20 boards
    Dwight Howard scored 15 points with 20 rebounds and one steal during a 97-82 win over the Mavs on Saturday.

    Advice: The Mavs went with a hack-a-Dwight in this game, but it didn't work with Howard making 7-of-9 from the line. Howard could be a usage beast if Paul Millsap is dealt. In fact, he gets a 5.0 percent boost in usage rate in his minutes without Millsap this season. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 9:22 pm
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. scores 22 points vs. DAL
    Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 22 points with two rebounds, three assists and five 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

    Advice: He is going to be the main man in the second unit with most of the other bench guys holding low usage rates. Even before this game, he was off to a strong start in 2017 with averages of 18.3 points, 4.3 boards, 1.0 assists and 4.0 treys. He's making a case to be added in standard leagues with a Nick Young-esque kind of upside. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 9:14 pm
  • Doug McDermott grabs season-high 10 rebounds
    Doug McDermott hit 6-of-17 shots for 17 points with a season-high 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes on Saturday against the Raptors.

    Advice: The Raptors had no answer for McDermott who recorded his first double-double of the season. He has scored in double-figures in five consecutive games and has played at least 29 minutes in six straight. He has solidified a spot in the Bulls rotation and should be a player to add in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 8:14 pm
  • Josh Richardson (foot) ruled out for Sunday
    Josh Richardson (left foot) will not play against the Clippers on Sunday.

    Advice: The good news is X-rays were negative, but Richardson will also have an MRI today. The team said he is dealing with a soft tissue injury to his foot and he was in a walking boot today. Richardson is playing 36 minutes per game this month, so there would be a big hole to fill. It should be Wayne Ellington, Dion Waiters and Rodney McGruder picking up the slack. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 2:16 pm
    Injured
     
  • Luol Deng (biceps) probable for Sunday
    Luol Deng (biceps) is probable to play against the Magic on Sunday.

    Advice: He was terrific on Friday with 19 points and there is no word of a setback, so Deng should be all set for the late game. The Lakers are only three games out of the eighth seed, which is a big reason Deng's minutes haven't dropped. He should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 1:37 pm
  • Rodriguez (ankle) hopeful to play Sunday
    Sergio Rodriguez (ankle) is "hopeful" he will be ready to play Sunday in Brooklyn.

    Advice: "Hopefully the next game I’ll be ready," Rodriguez said on Friday night. "I will try as much as I can. I want to play. It’s been eight days without doing what I’ve been doing for a long time." T.J. McConnell has played very well in place of S-Rod. McConnell has started each of the last three games and is averaging 10.7 points, 11.0 assists 4.3 rebounds and 1.3 steals over that stretch. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 10:07 am
  • First Team All Defense: Allen steals 6 in win
    Tony Allen recorded six steals in Friday's win over the Warriors, finishing with 11 points, 12 rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 48 minutes.

    Advice: He was everywhere tonight and helped the Grizzlies climb back from a 24-point deficit. Allen shot just 5-of-16 from the field, but who cares with a line like this? He was averaging 1.7 steals per game prior to Friday and that's where he gets most of his fantasy value, so anything else he can contribute is icing on the cake. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 10:57 pm
  • Luol Deng (biceps) scores 19 points
    Luol Deng (biceps) returned from a one-game absence and scored 19 points in Friday's win over the Heat.

    Advice: Performances like this are why the "revenge game" narrative exists. Deng grabbed 14 rebounds with two assists and three triples, and he shot 8-of-12 from the field in 30 minutes against his former team. Deng scored a combined 17 points in his previous four games, so most fantasy owners can leave him on the wire despite the fact that he has played 30 or more minutes in 12 straight games. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 10:32 pm
  • Rudy Gay scores 18 in his return
    Rudy Gay scored 18 points with seven rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the Clippers on Friday.

    Advice: He played power forward down the stretch, which is probably something that will happen most games. Gay's hip injury was a strange one and the Kings were pretty quiet on the details, so there are some questions to be answered here. You can bet he'll get a DNP-REST at some point, but get him in your lineups. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 10:04 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver plays just eight minutes
    Anthony Tolliver did not score in eight minutes against the Clippers with three rebounds.

    Advice: With Rudy Gay back in the lineup, Tolliver lost most of his playing time. Go ahead and drop him in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 9:58 pm
  • Rudy Gay and Ty Lawson starting Friday
    Rudy Gay (hip) and Ty Lawson are starting against the Clippers on Friday

    Advice: They will join Darren Collison, Matt Barnes and DeMarcus Cousins in the starting lineup, while Ben McLemore and Kosta Koufos will come off the bench. The Kings have been shuffling their lineup all season, so don't read too much into this. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 7:28 pm
  • Luol Deng (biceps) will start on Friday
    Luol Deng (biceps) will start on Friday vs. Miami.

    Advice: This means his biceps only forced him to miss one game. Deng will be looking for some revenge against his former team tonight and it's worth noting that he averaged 32.4 minutes in the five games before his injury. His return is good news for a Lakers team that might be missing Julius Randle (finger). Brandon Ingram loses value with this report and will return to the bench. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 5:52 pm
  • Sergio Rodriguez (ankle) ruled out Friday
    Sergio Rodriguez (left ankle sprain) will not play Friday vs. Boston.

    Advice: Rodriguez was listed as probable on Thursday but was then downgraded to questionable, before finally being ruled out prior to Friday's tip. T.J. McConnell is expected to draw another start. McConnell has played well in Rodriguez's absence and will be a popular DFS tournament play on Friday night. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 3:04 pm
  • Rudy Gay (hip) says he will play Friday night
    Rudy Gay (hip) says he will play Friday night vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Gay, who has missed 10 of the Kings last 11 games, is listed as questionable and we have not received official word from the team; however, Gay participated in shootaround on Friday and told reporters: "I'm going today, I'm a go." We don't yet know if there will be a minutes restriction in place, but he will likely slide back into the starting lineup if he can suit up. Matt Barnes, Anthony Tolliver and Garrett Temple will see their minutes reduced with Gay back in the mix. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 11:06 am
  • Luol Deng (biceps) questionable for Friday
    Luol Deng (biceps) is questionable for Friday's game vs. Miami.

    Advice: Deng missed his first game of the season on Thursday. Brandon Ingram started in his place and scored 11 points in 37 minutes. We will have to wait for an update closer to game time regarding the Deng's status for Friday night. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 10:52 am
  • Doug McDermott still dealing with memory loss
    Doug McDermott is still suffering from short-term memory issues close to a full month after suffering a concussion.

    Advice: Fortunately, for McDermott and the Bulls, he is feeling much better, all things considered. McDermott is also playing some of his best ball of the season. He has scored in double-figures in four straight games and is averaging 12.8 points (on 55.6 percent shooting) 3.0 rebounds and 2.0 3-pointers over this recent stretch. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 10:03 am
  • Sergio Rodriguez (ankle) questionable Friday
    Sergio Rodriguez (left ankle sprain) has been downgraded from probable to questionable for Friday's game vs. Boston.

    Advice: It's obviously not a good sign that the Sixers downgraded S-Rod, who has missed each of Philly's two previous games. If Rodriguez can't play, T.J. McConnell will draw another start at point guard. In his three starts this season, McConnell is averaging 11.7 points, 8.3 assists and 6.3 rebounds. He is a very enticing streaming and DFS option if S-Rod is unavailable. Rotoworld.com Jan 6, 8:33 am
