  • Joakim Noah ruled out for Thursday night
    An MRI of Joakim Noah's left ankle confirmed a sprain and he will not play on Thursday against the Wizards.

    Advice: There are no details of a timetable, but the Knicks will likely be taking it easy on their oft-injured veteran. With him out, Kyle O'Quinn will look to bounce back from a dreadful start on Wednesday. He's still worth a look in season-long leagues or for DFS. Plus, Willy Hernangomez should benefit and is worth a look as a punt or pickup in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com 48 minutes ago
  • Mike Muscala (ankle) out again for Friday
    Mike Muscala (ankle) will not play against the Bulls on Friday.

    Advice: It will be his third consecutive game out of the lineup due to his ankle sprain from Sunday. The Hawks turned to Kris Humphries to pick up most of the minutes as the backup big. He's played well in his last two, averaging 13.5 points, 4.5 boards and 2.0 treys in 22.0 minutes per game. Humphries probably won't be that good again, but give him a look if you're desperate for a big to stream. Mike Scott has also been in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:52 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) ruled out for Thursday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play on Thursday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Of course he won't. Arthur can't stay healthy and the Nuggets are going to limit his workload whenever they can. With Wilson Chandler (personal) out and Danilo Gallinari (ankle) questionable, we should see a lot of Kenneth Faried tonight and may even get a Jusuf Nurkic sighting. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:19 am
  • Quincy Acy will sign another 10-day contract
    Quincy Acy will sign another 10-day contract with the Nets.

    Advice: Acy has made four brief appearances for the Nets, but he made a decent fist impression with averages of 6.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 7.5 minutes per game. Unless his role grows, fantasy owners can continue to ignore him. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:09 am
  • Kevon Looney likely to take West's minutes?
    Kevon Looney could enter the rotation for the Warriors with David West (thumb) expected to miss two weeks.

    Advice: "We’ll see," head coach Steve Kerr said. "You may see [Kevon] Looney, you may see us change our rotation a little bit. We’ll have to talk about it." While Looney is the favorite to see a bump in minutes, the Warriors could also turn to JaVale McGee, Anderson Varejao or Damion Jones on any given night. West was only averaging 11.5 minutes per game on the season, so there's not much fantasy value here anyways. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:44 am
  • P.J. Tucker drawing interest around the NBA
    P.J. Tucker is reportedly drawing interest from around the league.

    Advice: Tucker is on the final year of an affordable deal, as he's on the books for just $5.3 million. With the Suns rebuilding, it's no secret that they will listen to offers for their defensive stopper. According to this report, the Clippers, Bulls, Cavaliers, Timberwolves and Hawks all have interest in Tucker, but Suns GM Ryan McDonough said earlier in the week that he doesn't like taking back late-round picks in deals which could complicate things in trade talks. If the Suns can find a new home for Tucker, T.J. Warren will get a bump and Dragan Bender will have a larger role. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:22 am
  • Joakim Noah (ankle) doubtful for Thursday
    Joakim Noah (ankle) is not expected to play on Thursday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: He's going to have an MRI on Thursday morning but it's a safe bet that he will miss his second straight game -- Noah was in so much pain on Wednesday that he didn't even try to warm up after his ankle swelled up on the plane. Kyle O'Quinn started in Noah's place on Wednesday, but flopped in a big way with just two points in 10 minutes. Willy Hernangomez scored 17 points off the bench with 11 rebounds in 20 minutes and Marshall Plumlee also had a nice game with five points, seven rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 20 minutes, but this is a situation for fantasy owners to avoid until someone separates themselves from the pack. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:34 am
  • Kosta Koufos gets the start vs. Pacers
    Kosta Koufos scored 11 points in a start with four rebounds and one steal in 24 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Kings went big and it actually was working early with Koufos having a positive net rating in this game. Koufos could be asked to play more next to DeMarcus Cousins, but he'll likely be used situationally at best. He's only worth a look if you're desperate for a big man. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:29 pm
  • Arron Afflalo gets the start on Wednesday
    Arron Afflalo made a start against the Pacers on Wednesday with 11 points, one rebound, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He could be a bigger part of the rotation again with Rudy Gay (Achilles) likely out for the season. Although, Afflalo was a DNP-CD at times even when Gay missed games last month. His upside is really low anyway, so he's more of a deep-league pickup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:23 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver likely headed for minutes
    Anthony Tolliver came off the bench against the Pacers on Wednesday with five points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes.

    Advice: The first time Rudy Gay (Achilles) missed extended time, Tolliver was let loose a bit with 28.7 minutes per game in that 11-game span. He averaged 9.7 points, 4.8 boards, 0.9 assists, 0.5 blocks and 1.9 treys on 50.0 percent from the field. While that percentage may not be sustainable, Tolliver did post ninth-round value in that span, so he's worth a look if you need treys from a power forward. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Garrett Temple drops nine points in 29 mins
    Garrett Temple played 29 minutes off the bench against the Pacers on Wednesday with nine points, four rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He should be getting a big bump in usage and playing time with Rudy Gay (Achilles). In the previous stretch Gay missed 10 of 11 games, Temple averaged 10.2 points, 3.4 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.5 treys on 42.4 percent from the field and 89.5 percent from the line. That was good for eighth-round value, so he is worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:15 pm
  • Ben McLemore doesn't score on Wednesday
    Ben McLemore did not score in four minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday with one rebound and two turnovers.

    Advice: With Rudy Gay (Achilles) going down, McLemore should be in the rotation as the ninth or 10th guy. Obviously there's no need to add him almost anywhere unless you're extremely desperate. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:04 pm
  • Aron Baynes (knee) looks fine vs. Hawks
    Aron Baynes' knee injury didn't limit him on Wednesday, as he came off the bench for 12 points (3-of-5 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs) with four rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes.

    Advice: The Pistons were back home after a five-game road trip, during which they went 2-3, and they came out of the gates red hot tonight with a 42-point first quarter. Baynes' knee injury is a non-issue, but his fantasy value is negligible while Andre Drummond is healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:12 pm
  • Reggie Bullock thrives Wed as fill-in starter
    Reggie Bullock made another fill-in start on Wednesday, notching a season-high 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and a pair of 3-pointers.

    Advice: Bullock played 36 minutes tonight, and he should continue to start until Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) gets back on the court. That could be as soon as Saturday's home game vs. the Wizards, however, so there's no real incentive to pick up Bullock in standard formats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:12 pm
  • Langston Galloway scores 18 points w/ four 3s
    Langston Galloway picked up 18 points on 5-of-8 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs on Wednesday, hitting four 3-pointers with three boards, three assists and zero turnovers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: Galloway played the entire fourth quarter of the Pelicans' blowout win, so this needs to be viewed in context. He's played 30+ minutes six times all season and isn't a safe fantasy option while guys like Jrue Holiday, Buddy Hield and Tyreke Evans are healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Dante Cunningham hits 7-of-11 FGs for 14 pts
    Dante Cunningham earned another start for the Pelicans on Wednesday, posting 14 points on 7-of-11 shooting with five rebounds and no other stats in 27 minutes.

    Advice: The veteran came in shooting 38.9 percent this season, and he's typically a vacant fantasy option no matter how many minutes he gets. He belongs on the wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Kosta Koufos starting, Tolliver to bench
    Kosta Koufos will start and Anthony Tolliver will come off the bench on Wednesday against the Pacers.

    Advice: Coach Dave Joerger is going with his older lineup, but it may be due to Ty Lawson (ankle) not playing. Leave Koufos on the wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:34 pm
  • Arron Afflalo starts, Garrett Temple to bench
    Arron Afflalo will start and Garrett Temple will move to the bench on Wednesday against the Pacers.

    Advice: It makes sense because the Kings need Temple to be the backup point guard. Temple's value is fine off the bench while Afflalo can stay on the wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:30 pm
  • Joakim Noah (ankle) will not play Wednesday
    Joakim Noah (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Celtics.

    Advice: The 31-year-old center also needs an MRI. He has a sore left ankle and didn't go through shootaround. Noah has been surprisingly healthy lately, but he could miss additional time going forward given his track record. With him out, Kyle O'Quinn should get a bump in minutes and the same goes for Willy Hernangomez. If you need a big man, KOQ is worth a pickup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:03 pm
  • Darrell Arthur is doubtful to play
    Darrell Arthur (knee) is doubtful to play against the Spurs on Thursday.

    Advice: He did not play on Tuesday due to his oft-injured knee. With Wilson Chandler (personal) listed as out, there could be plenty of minutes going to Kenneth Faried and even Juan Hernangomez. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:03 pm
  • Reggie Bullock will start Wednesday vs. ATL
    Reggie Bullock will remain in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Hawks, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) unavailable.

    Advice: Bullock logged 29 minutes in a start on Sunday, but only managed to tally four points, one rebound, one assist and one steal. Yes, he's starting, but that doesn't make him a viable target in most settings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 am
  • Aron Baynes (knee) good to go for Wednesday
    Aron Baynes (knee) is a go for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.

    Advice: Baynes did not practice on Tuesday, but he was never expected to miss Wednesday's game. He doesn't have much value with Andre Drummond (knee) healthy, though. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:09 am
  • Joakim Noah (ankle) questionable Wednesday
    Joakim Noah (sore left ankle) did not go through shootaround and he is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) is also questionable to play, and if neither guy is able to give it a go, Kyle O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez would likely pick up most of the five-man minutes in New York. O'Quinn is about as hit-or-miss as they come, and as a starter this season he owns averages of 8.5 points, 8.8 boards and 0.8 blocks per game, so he's basically just a streamer if he gets the start. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:14 am
  • Mike Muscala (ankle) out Wednesday vs. DET
    Mike Muscala (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: Muscala's minutes will likely be divvied up between Kris Humphries and Mike Scott, but neither of those guys will get enough run to matter in most settings while Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard are healthy. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:42 pm
  • Aron Baynes (knee) does not practice Tuesday
    Aron Baynes (knee) did not practice Tuesday but expected to be able to play Wednesday vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: Baynes injury appears to be minor, but if he does miss time Boban Marjanovic would be the primary beneficiary. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:57 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Tuesday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: This will be the third consecutive game Arthur has missed due to his latest knee pain. Kenneth Faried started and played a season-high 33 minutes on Monday. The Manimal will likely see extra minutes on Tuesday as well due to Arthur's absence. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:54 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee): Tuesday status unknown
    The availability of Darrell Arthur (knee) for Tuesday’s game at the L.A. Lakers is unknown.

    Advice: Arthur missed his second consecutive game due to left knee soreness on Monday. He has missed a total of 10 games this season as a result of knee issues. "He only knows one speed," coach Mike Malone said. "When we (practice) hard he goes hardest. And his knee has a hard time withstanding that pounding. So I almost have to try to protect him from himself at times." Kenneth Faried played a season-high 33 minutes on Monday and would get a boost on Tuesday if Arthur is out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:09 am
  • P.J. Tucker hauls in season-high 13 boards
    P.J. Tucker tied his season high with 13 rebounds and added eight points and two steals in 27 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: Tucker is averaging just 6.2 points over his last five games, but also 7.8 rebounds and 1.8 steals in 29 minutes a game. He doesn't hit threes, hand out assists or block shots, and with his shaky field goal percentage and lack of scoring, is a borderline player to target in fantasy leagues. Chances are you can do better off your waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:55 pm
  • Dante Cunningham scores three points in start
    Dante Cunningham moved into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Pacers, but scored just three points on 1-of-7 shooting in 31 minutes.

    Advice: We have no idea why coach Alvin Gentry insists on giving Cunningham this type of workload, but it could be his downfall. The forward added just two rebounds, one steal and a triple, while Terrence Jones had 15 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a triple in 26 minutes off the bench. Even with Anthony Davis (back) going down, Cunnigham isn't worth adding in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:36 pm
  • 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 Monday, 1:06 pm
  • Cunningham starting, Jones to the bench
    Dante Cunningham will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Pacers, sending Terrence Jones back to the bench.

    Advice: Alvin Gentry just loves Cunningham, but there's nothing to like about his production in fantasy hoops. Jrue Holiday, Buddy Hield, Solomon Hill and Anthony Davis will join Cunningham in the starting five for today's matinee, and Jones' value will take a hit with the demotion to the second unit. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:37 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 Sunday, 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 Sunday, 9:27 pm
  • Quincy Acy plays 20 minutes vs. Rockets
    Quincy Acy played 20 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Rockets, finishing with seven points, four boards, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Acy is a combined 3-of-4 from deep since joining the Nets on Jan. 10, but perimeter shooting isn't a facet of his game we expect to see with regularity. He was also averaging just 3.0 minutes in his previous two appearances for Brooklyn, with a DNP-CD to his credit, and there's no reason to consider him in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:26 pm
  • Mike Muscala (left ankle) won't play Monday
    Mike Muscala (left ankle) won't travel for Monday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: The Hawks play in Detroit on Wednesday, so there's a chance that Muscala will miss multiple games. Kris Humphries should see his role increase with Muscala on the shelf, but Atlanta also relied heavily on their swingmen after Muscala's injury on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:48 pm
  • Mike Muscala (ankle) will not return Sunday
    Mike Muscala suffered a left ankle injury and he will not return to Sunday's game vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: He was ruled out pretty quickly after being sent to the locker room, so we're going to consider him questionable for Monday's game against the Knicks. If he's out, Mike Scott could get into the rotation and Dwight Howard could see his minutes rise to the high-30s. Monday will be the second game of a back-to-back set, meaning Atlanta won't have a shootaround, so we likely won't get another update on Muscala until closer to Monday's tip. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:38 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) out Monday vs. Magic
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Magic.

    Advice: It's always something with this guy, and Monday will mark his second straight game on the sidelines. Kenneth Faried and Jusuf Nurkic will likely split his limited minutes, which doesn't mean all that much. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:48 am
  • 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 Sunday, 11:39 am
  • P.J. Tucker scores six points
    P.J. Tucker scored six points with five rebounds, two assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

    Advice: He did get the business from Kawhi Leonard for most of this game, but Tucker came up big late to get the big win. He'll have some low-end value while the Suns are technically in playoff contention, but he's only a guy on deep-league radars. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:03 pm
  • Dante Cunningham scores seven points
    Dante Cunningham scored seven points with five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes off the bench against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: He was the first forward sub of the game and checked in for Terrence Jones, so coach Alvin Gentry may see him in that role going forward. Cunningham needs a ridiculous amount of minutes to have value in even deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:00 pm
  • Kevon Looney back up with the Warriors
    The Warriors recalled Kevon Looney on Saturday.

    Advice: He went off in the D-League with 18 points, 20 boards, two steals and two blocks on Friday. Looney sure can board, but he isn't in the rotation right now. We might see him have an impact on the nights Draymond Green rests. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:30 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
  • Aron Baynes scores two points in start
    Aron Baynes started on Friday vs. the Jazz and scored two points on 1-of-3 shooting in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He had zero rebounds but somehow managed to block four shots. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) was out and the Pistons started Baynes to match up with Utah's frontcourt, so he will likely return to the bench against the Lakers on Sunday regardless of KCP's status. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:33 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
  • Aron Baynes will start vs. the Jazz
    Aron Baynes will draw the start next to Andre Drummond on Friday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Many were expecting Stanley Johnson to start in place of Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder), but it does make some sense to start Baynes to match up with Derrick Favors. Despite the starting label, Baynes is only worth a look in very deep leagues in the short term. Coach Stan Van Gundy said on Thursday that Boban Marjanovic will be his backup center going forward, so he should be in the rotation as well. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:57 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
  • 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
  • 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
  • Dante Cunningham comes off the bench
    Dante Cunningham moved to the bench on Thursday against the Nets, finishing with four points, five boards and one steal.

    Advice: Maybe, just maybe coach Alvin Gentry will start playing Terrence Jones over Cunningham more now. Cunningham isn't worth owning in almost any league regardless. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:49 pm
  • Langston Galloway scores one point
    Langston Galloway scored one point with four rebounds and one turnover in 17 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

    Advice: It was a bad, bad game. He had one of the worst inbounds passes of the season and also missed all six shots from the field. With Tyreke Evans looking good, Galloway should be trending down. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:47 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
  • Dante Cunningham moves to the bench
    Dante Cunningham will move to the bench against the Nets on Thursday.

    Advice: He should still be in the rotation tonight, but obviously fantasy owners shouldn't be looking his way. Cunningham will need a lot to happen to have consistent fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:10 pm
  • Darrell Arthur will not play on Thursday
    Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: The Nuggets are somewhat healthy besides Arthur, so he wasn't a lock to be in the rotation anyway. Kenneth Faried could see some minutes at power forward tonight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:30 am
  • Darrell Arthur (leg) questionable Thursday
    Darrell Arthur (leg) is questionable for Thursday's game for the Pacers.

    Advice: Of course he is. Nikola Jokic is returning from an illness anyways, so Arthur will be irrelevant in most fantasy leagues with his move back to the bench. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:42 am
  • 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
  • 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
  • Quincy Acy scores four points in debut
    Quincy Acy made his debut for the Nets on Tuesday vs. the Hawks and scored four points with one rebound and a triple in just one minute.

    Advice: He made a strong first impression, but we don't see playing many minutes when Trevor Booker (hip) returns on Thursday vs. the Pelicans. Leave Acy on the wire. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:39 pm
  • Quincy Acy will be available to play Tuesday
    Quincy Acy will be available to make his Brooklyn debut Tuesday vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: Acy will provide the Nets with some depth at the power forward position during his 10-day contract, but as long as Trevor Booker is starting, it's unlikely he'll be able to command any fantasy value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:56 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
  • Stein: Nets to sign F Quincy Acy
    According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Nets will sign Quincy Acy to replace Anthony Bennett.

    Advice: This is actually a decent landing spot for Acy, as the Nets are thin at power forward behind Trevor Booker because Chris McCullough hasn't really taken the next step in his development. Acy is a solid defender, but he has career averages of 4.5 points and 3.5 rebounds and isn't on the fantasy radar just yet. Rotoworld.com Jan 9, 8:00 am
  • 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
  • Aron Baynes (ankle) plays six minutes Sunday
    Aron Baynes (ankle) returned to action on Sunday with two points and one rebound in six minutes.

    Advice: The Pistons got some unexpected rest when Saturday's game was postponed, but both team's schedules allowed for an immediate make-up date. Baynes barely saw the court tonight because Andre Drummond played a whopping 52 minutes in the double-OT win, and he faces a renewed challenge from Boban Marjanovic. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 10:24 pm
  • Garrett Temple plays 42 minutes as starter
    Garrett Temple had 14 points, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 42 minutes as a starter vs. Golden State on Sunday.

    Advice: Temple is averaging 32.5 minutes in his past five games, but he's done nothing to warrant fantasy ownership. He should be viewed with skepticism even if he does continue to start alongside Darren Collison (14 points in 30 minutes). Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 9:55 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
