  • Tim Quarterman (ankle) questionable vs. LAL
    Tim Quarterman (ankle) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: The undrafted rookie has suited up for a total of 12 games this season and has never exceeded the eight-minutes mark, so his playing status is irrelevant in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com 32 minutes ago
  • Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) practices Tuesday
    Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) practiced on Tuesday, and there's a chance he could return to action Thursday vs. Minnesota.

    Advice: "We'll see how he feels tomorrow," said head coach Nate McMillan. "Then we'll make a decision if he's ready to go on Thursday." Stuckey just hasn't been able to stay healthy this season, and he'll likely be brought along slowly. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:41 am

  • Ricky Rubio (personal) ready to play Tuesday
    Updating a previous item, Ricky Rubio (personal/hip) says he's recovered from the hip injury that kept him out of the second half of last Thursday's game and is ready to play Tuesday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Rubio did not play the second half of last Thursday's game due to tightness in his hip. However, he ended up missing Sunday's contest as he had flew to Spain to be with his family following the death of his grandmother. Rubio is back with the team in Phoenix and sounds like the hip injury is no longer an issue. With Rubio starting, Kris Dunn will return to his role as a reserve. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:39 am
  • Mudiay (back) 'very doubtful' for Tuesday
    Coach Mike Malone said that Emmanuel Mudiay (back) is "very doubtful" to play Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Mudiay exited Denver game on Saturday and was unable to return, and then was held out of Sunday's contest as well. Malone added: "[Mudiay] is getting treatment around the clock but did not go through shootaround this morning." Jameer Nelson started at point guard in the on Sunday, finishing with nine points, two assists, two rebounds and four turnovers in 28 minutes. Jamal Murray fared far better. He had 17 points, six rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes. Nelson and Murray will likely split minutes at the point again on Tuesday. Daily Slant: With Mudiay out, a few Nuggets come into DFS relevancy despite a match-up with a slow paced, defensive minded team. Nelson should draw the start at PG and given his price/ projected playing time, he grades out as one of the top $/point targets on the slate. He's still not a safe option, but the upside is there.

  • Ricky Rubio (personal) back with team Tuesday
    Ricky Rubio (personal) is back with the Wolves and was at shootaround this morning in Phoenix.

    Advice: Rubio, listed as probable, is track to play Tuesday night. It was reported that Rubio was away from the team to be with his family after the death of his grandmother. Kris Dunn will get bumped back to the bench with Rubio returning. Rubio had been playing his best ball of the season (averaging 13.2 points and 14.0 assists in a recent five-game stretch) prior to his absence. Hopefully he can pick up right where he left off. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:12 am
  • Tony Parker (foot) ruled out for Tuesday
    Tony Parker (foot) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: This will be the fourth straight game Parker has missed since his left ankle/foot "locked up" prior to last Thursday's win over the Nuggets. Dejounte Murray has started each of Spurs the last three games. After playing well in the first two starts but came back down to earth on Monday, scoring four points (on 2-of-8 shooting) with six rebounds and three assists in 22 minutes. Patty Mills came off the bench to score a team-high 20 points in 20 minutes on Monday. Mills and Murray will continue to split minutes with Parker sidelined. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:01 am
  • Wade confirms he'll play Tuesday & Wednesday
    Dwyane Wade confirmed that he will play both ends of the Bulls back-to-back (Tuesday in Orlando and Wednesday vs. Atlanta.)

    Advice: It is important to note that Chicago may choose to limit his minutes in at least one of these two games, just as they did in a similar back-to-back situation last week, when he played 20 minutes (and scored four points) on Friday but then scored 30 points in 35 minutes the next night. Feel free to start Wade as one normally would in season-long leagues, but he carries a bit of extra risk for those considering him in DFS formats. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:15 am
  • Wolves willing to play Jones & Dunn together
    Minnesota is willing to play Tyus Jones in the same backcourt alongside Kris Dunn, according to coach Tom Thibodeau.

    Advice: "It opens up the floor. So Kris has the ability to play two positions. He can defend three positions, actually. So you can use him in that way," Thibodeau said. "And then you have multiple guys who can run in pick-and-rolls. It gives you different options." Rubio (personal reasons) is expected back for Tuesday's game, but this is something to keep in mind should the Wolves trade Rubio before the February trade deadline. Dunn will obviously be the primary benefactor of such a trade, but Jones could see a slightly larger boost than expected. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:11 am
  • Coach Thibodeau has high praise for Kris Dunn
    Coach Tom Thibodeau heaped praise on rookie Kris Dunn after his solid performance as a starter in the Wolves win over Denver on Sunday.

    Advice: Dunn, starting in place of Ricky Rubio (personal) had 10 points, nine assists, eight rebounds, three steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes. "He’s been coming on for a while," Thibodeau said. "Defensively he’s been good from the beginning. Offensively he’s figuring it out... Kris has a lot of toughness in him." Rubio is listed as probable for Tuesday's game, meaning he is expected to play. However, rumors involving a potential trade of Rubio continue to swirl around Minnesota. If Ricky is dealt, Dunn's playing time - and fantasy value - will skyrocket, making him a solid stash if you have roster room. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:47 am
  • Austin Rivers' confidence on the rise
    Austin Rivers says he knew he was going to have a big season in 2016-17, as he finished up last year strong and went into the summer with confidence.

    Advice: "It’s not like this is a shock to me. I knew I was going to play well this year," said Rivers. "I knew it was coming." After pouring in 27 points in Monday night's win over the Hawks, Rivers is averaging 19.4 points (on 51.8 percent shooting), 4.4 assists and 2.4 3-pointers over the Clippers last eight games. Rivers' ownership levels should remain sky-high for as long as Chris Paul (thumb) is sidelined. In his 16 starts this season, Rivers is averaging 17.4 points, 3.6 assists, and 2.8 rebounds in 33.8 minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:01 am
  • Wizards to wear all black to game vs. Celtics
    The Wizards are planning on wearing all black to their game against the rival Celtics on Tuesday night.

    Advice: The unexpected rivalry between the C's and Wiz has escalated exponentially over the last year. It started with trash talk last season and culminated with a physical confrontation between John Wall and Jae Crowder in the teams' last meeting on Jan. 11, when Crowder put his finger in the face of Wall. "Everything was fine until he put his hands on my face... when you touch me in my private space, that’s going to escalate [to] somewhere else," said Wall. "We’re wearing all black to the game," Kelly Oubre Jr. said. "So you know where we’re going with that. We’re ready for whatever, man. Round three. Let’s get it." Rotoworld.com Today, 6:46 am
  • Ricky Rubio (personal) probable for Tuesday
    Ricky Rubio (personal) is listed as probable for Tuesday's game vs. Phoenix.

    Advice: Rubio missed Sunday's game vs. Denver due to unexplained personal reasons but is expected to rejoin the team in time for Tuesday's contest. Kris Dunn, who started in place of Rubio on Sunday and played well (10 points, nine assists, eight rebounds in 34 minutes) will get bumped back to the bench. Rubio had been on a hot streak, prior to missing the second half of last Thursday's game due to tightness in his hip. He was averaging 13.2 points, 14.0 assists and 2.8 steals in the Wolves five previous games. Make sure he is back in your lineup. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:15 am
  • Alec Burks scores 13 points in loss to OKC
    Alec Burks scored 13 points for the second straight game on Monday vs. the Thunder, shooting 4-of-7 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line with two rebounds and two assists in a season-high 25 minutes

    Advice: Burks is now in the rotation with Rodney Hood (knee) out and he played 19 minutes in his previous outing. "Being out for so long, it's hard to get back into the rhythm, but I'm getting there. I feel like I'm getting better," Burks said. "I feel more comfortable with my teammates. I'm making progress." Burks took an ill-advised shot in the final seconds of the two-point loss, but the fact that he was even in there suggests that he will be a big part of Utah's plans in the short term. If you have something to cut in a deep league, give Burks a look since the Jazz play three more times this week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:29 pm
  • Westbrook triple-doubles, hits game-winner
    Russell Westbrook scored 38 points and hit a game-winning mid-range jumper with a couple seconds left in Monday's 97-95 win over the Jazz.

    Advice: He's an absolute monster. Westbrook recorded his 22nd triple-double of the season with 10 rebounds and 10 assists, adding four steals, one block, three triples and six turnovers. He finished 11-of-29 from the field and 13-of-17 from the line, an incredible feat against one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. Per StatMuse, Westbrook now has the most 30-point triple-doubles (21) in the last 30 years over LeBron James (21) and Michael Jordan (16). Not bad for an All-Star reserve... Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:10 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 20 vs. the Heat
    Stephen Curry scored 20 points with 10 rebounds, eight assists, one block and three triples vs. the Heat on Monday.

    Advice: He finished 7-of-19 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line with four turnovers in 37 minutes. This was his second 20/10 game of the season and he matched his season high with 10 rebounds. Curry is trending up in the new year and he's averaging 80.5 touches per game with 5.4 seconds per touch in January compared to 76 touches and 4.7 seconds per touch before Jan. 1, and his owners can expect another strong performance in a homecoming game in Charlotte on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:02 pm
  • Jeff Teague cools off against Bulls
    Jeff Teague hit just 3-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, four rebounds and seven assists in Monday's loss to the Knicks.

    Advice: Teague had scored in double figures in all nine of his January games prior to tonight's mishap and was averaging 16.8 points, 4.7 rebounds, 9.3 assists, a steal and a 3-pointer during the month coming into this one. He was due for an off night, but should bounce back against the Timberwolves on Thursday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:34 pm
  • Ty Lawson scores 19 off Kings' bench
    Ty Lawson played 23 minutes and hit 7-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer for 19 points, three rebounds, six assists and a steal off the Kings' bench on Monday.

    Advice: Darren Collison continues to start, but Lawson has been the better point guard over the past month. Lawson is averaging 11 points, 2.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists and a steal over his last four games, but he's not much of a 3-point threat. We'd rather own Lawson over Collison, at least for now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:07 pm
  • Austin Rivers tweaks ankle in win
    Austin Rivers played through a sprained ankle and finished Monday's 115-105 win over the Hawks with 27 points, four rebounds, six assists and five 3-pointers on 10-of-21 shooting, and played 41 minutes despite the injury.

    Advice: The ankle sprain didn't look great on television, but Rivers powered through it and looked like the best player on the court tonight. He's playing very well right now. averaging 18.8 points, 2.0 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.4 3-pointers on 49 percent shooting over his last five. River and teammate Raymond Felton are both players to own for as long as Chris Paul remains out with his thumb injury, which will be at least for another month. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:40 pm
  • Austin Rivers (ankle) available to return
    Austin Rivers (ankle) is available to return on Monday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: The injury looked pretty bad and Rivers had quite a limp, but the Clippers finally get some injury luck with this report. Rivers was the best player on the floor in the first half, so his owners are very fortunate right now. We'll let you know how he fares after the game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:51 pm
  • Austin Rivers (ankle) goes to locker room
    Austin Rivers (ankle) left Monday's game vs. the Hawks and went back to the locker room. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:38 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) out again Monday
    Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) will not play on Monday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: He still has no timetable for a return. Monta Ellis and C.J. Miles will continue to log around 20 minutes each off the bench until Stuckey is cleared to return. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:04 pm
    Injured
     
  • Emmanuel Mudiay (back) questionable Tuesday
    Emmanuel Mudiay (back) is questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Mudiay missed Sunday's game with the back issue, which resulted in Jameer Nelson moving into the starting lineup and Jamal Murray logging extending minutes with the second unit. If Mudiay is out again on Tuesday, it'll be more of the same. Check back for another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:43 pm
  • Wade expected to play Tuesday and Wednesday
    Dwyane Wade is expected to play on Tuesday vs. the Magic and Wednesday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: The Bulls will likely limit his minutes in one game of the back-to-back set just like they did in their previous set -- Wade played 20 minutes against the Hawks on Jan. 20 and 35 minutes vs. the Kings on Jan. 21. Just keep in mind that the lopsided score was a factor in the Atlanta game. Wade is safe to deploy in season-long leagues, but he's very risky in DFS. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:43 am
  • Dunn Deal: Kris Dunn starts, racks up 10/9/8
    Kris Dunn thrived as a starter in place of Ricky Rubio (personal) on Sunday, finishing with 10 points, nine assists, eight rebounds, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Dunn averaged just 4.4 points on 28.0 percent shooting in five starts earlier this season, but he's come a long way since then, and tonight's assists and rebounds were both career-highs. Rubio suffered a hip injury recently, and he's a prime trade target, all of which makes Dunn an appealing stash both short- and long-term, especially after tonight's showing. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:28 pm
  • Seth Curry hits 6-of-8 shots for 14 points
    Seth Curry went 6-of-8 from the field during Sunday's blowout win over the Lakers, on his way to 14 points, two boards, two 3-pointers, three assists, one steal and one turnover.

    Advice: Curry had the hot hand early, and he didn't even miss his first shot until midway through the second quarter. The Mavs ended the first half with a season-high 29-point lead and finished the game with a season-best 49-point win (the third-largest victory in Mavs history). As for Curry, he's jumped into the mid-round equation over the past month, and he could be looking at a more active role in the offense if Wesley Matthews (hip) is forced to miss any time. He's worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:25 pm
  • Ricky Rubio (personal) probable for Tuesday
    Ricky Rubio (personal) is expected to rejoin the team on Monday, and he will fly with the squad to Phoenix for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

    Advice: Rubio will miss Sunday's game against the Nuggets, but it sounds like this will only end up being a one-game absence due to the personal issue. Kris Dunn will draw the start tonight sans Rubio, and he's on the radar in daily leagues with an uptempo matchup against one of the worst teams in the league at defending the point guard position. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:29 pm
  • Kris Dunn will start Sunday vs. Denver
    Kris Dunn will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Nuggets, with Ricky Rubio (personal) unavailable.

    Advice: Dunn hasn't really had a coming out game yet at the NBA level, but he's going to get a ton of opportunity tonight with a favorable matchup against the Nuggets and no Rubio around to mess with his minutes. He's on the radar as a potential streamer punt play in DFS. Tyus Jones should also see some extended minutes off the bench tonight. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:21 pm
  • Stephen Curry drains seven triples in win
    Stephen Curry was en fuego during the Warriors 118-98 blowout victory over the Magic, tallying 27 points, seven 3-pointers, four boards, six assists and three turnovers in 30 minutes of floor time.

    Advice: Orlando had precisely zero answers for Curry in this one, as he regularly lit them up from beyond the arc (as per usual) and also showcased his elite passing and decision making abilities during the blowout win. He was the primary factor in Golden State going off for 42 points during the third quarter (their 11th time scoring at least 40 points in a quarter this season), and he may have had an even crazier game if it weren’t for the lopsided score. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:21 am
  • Alec Burks looks great vs. Pacers
    Alec Burks scored 13 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

    Advice: This was the Burks we were expecting after the Rodney Hood injury (knee) last weekend. He did run some of the second-unit offense and attacked like he has done throughout his career. Most fantasy owners can take a wait-and-see approach here. Joe Ingles has a strong grip on his role as the short-term starter, playing 33 minutes with two points, four rebounds, six assists and three steals. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:15 pm
  • Austin Rivers scores 16 points in start
    Austin Rivers scored 16 points with two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes as the starting point guard against the Nuggets on Saturday.

    Advice: The fact that he started over Raymond Felton was a good sign, but getting smoked in the first half negates that. With Blake Griffin (knee) getting really close, it should affect Rivers the most because he's more of a score-first guard and that's not needed as much next to BG. Plus, he has been a nightmare on defense. He's a hold for the rest of the month, but may fall off in February. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:24 pm
  • Dwyane Wade scores team-high 30 points
    Dwyane Wade hit 9-20 shots and 12-of-15 free throws for 30 points with six rebounds, four assists, three steals and four blocks on Saturday against the Kings.

    Advice: Wade stuffed the stat sheet and helped the Bulls snap a two-game losing streak. Chicago will get two days of rest before heading to Orlando to take on the Magic, a team that Wade played 25 minutes against and scored 16 points with three rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks in their last meeting. He should be well rested and ready to roll in that matchup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:18 pm
  • Emmanuel Mudiay (back) ruled out for Sunday
    Emmanuel Mudiay (lower back) has been ruled out for Sunday against the Wolves.

    Advice: That is not a good sign for Mudiay to be ruled out so soon. He was grabbing his back on his way to the locker room on Saturday and he also was ruled out for the remainder of the game in just a few minutes. Mudiay had his back injury coming into this game, but he is day-to-day. Jameer Nelson was actually flirting with standard-league value while Mudiay has been healthy lately, so he looks like a nice pickup for owners need a point guard with a short-term boost. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:26 pm
  • Emmanuel Mudiay (back) out for game
    Emmanuel Mudiay (back) will not return on Saturday.

    Advice: This was the same reason he was listed as probable, so it wasn't fake news for him to be on the injury report. Mudiay doesn't have any history of back problems in his NBA career, but he was hobbled as he went back to the locker room. Jameer Nelson is going to be busy, so feel free to grab him if you need a point guard. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:31 pm
  • Emmanuel Mudiay available to play
    Emmanuel Mudiay (back) is available to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: This is a new injury for Mudiay, but the Nuggets usually have very low standards for throwing a player on the injury report as probable. Start Mudiay like you normally would. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:24 pm
  • Dwyane Wade is starting again
    Dwyane Wade will start again against the Kings on Saturday.

    Advice: This isn't a surprise after a really bad loss. The Bulls will still stick with Michael Carter-Williams, Wade, Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson and Robin Lopez. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:18 pm
  • Ricky Rubio (personal) out for Sunday night
    Ricky Rubio (personal) is away from the team and will not play against the Nuggets on Sunday.

    Advice: It's been a very eventful week and hopefully his personal stuff is nothing serious. As far as basketball goes, Rubio hurt his hip on Thursday and did not return, and he also popped up in a very credible trade rumor for Reggie Jackson from ESPN. With him out, it'll likely be Tyus Jones and Kris Dunn splitting the minutes. Jones makes more sense because he's playing better and is a better scorer. Rubio is expected to be back on Monday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:14 am
  • Emmanuel Mudiay (back) probable for Saturday
    Emmanuel Mudiay (sore lower back) is listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: This is the first we've heard of Mudiay dealing with any back issue. However, the Nuggets are known to note even the most minor aliments in their game notes, so this is likely nothing to be overly concerned about. Check back closer to tip-off to make sure he's all set. If Mudiay were to miss any time, Jameer Nelson would likely be inserted into the starting lineup and see a major uptick in minutes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:09 am
  • John Wall says he is finally fully healthy
    John Wall says this season is the healthiest he's been in his NBA career thus far.

    Advice: Wall is enjoying arguably the best season of his career and believes it is largely due to him finally being fully heathy. "I'm back to where I can be myself and be the player I always wanted to be," said Wall. "I know there’s a lot of great players in this league but me being healthy and me being back to myself, I give myself a shot to be one of the best players in the league." Wall, who is retuning first-runs fantasy value by averaging 23.1 points and 10.3 assists, is one of just three guards (James Harden and Russell Westbrook) to average a point-assist double-double this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:56 am
  • Tony Parker (foot) to miss at least two games
    Tony Parker (foot) will miss at least two more games, including Saturday night vs. the Cavs and Monday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: This is somewhat surprising news, as Parker was expected to play Saturday after being a late scratch on Thusday. Dejounte Murray had an excellent game starting in place of Parker on Thursday. Murray finished with 24 points (on 7-of-11 shooting) and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes. Patty Mills ended up only playing 16 minutes in that contest. Murray may draw another start on Saturday, but it unlikely he can come close to matching Thursday's production. We can expect a more even distribution of minutes among the Mills and Murray on Saturday and Monday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:01 am
  • Alec Burks gets just 12 minutes
    Alec Burks played 12 minutes against the Mavs on Friday with seven points, two rebounds and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He actually got some run at point guard tonight, but clearly the Jazz aren't ready up Burks' minutes so soon with the team playing well. If you haven't dropped him yet, we'll let you know if he pops back up. It does help that the Jazz seem pretty clueless on their backup point guard right now. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:18 am
  • Dwyane Wade has terrible game in ATL
    Dwyane Wade made 2-of-10 from the field to match his season-low four points in 20 minutes against the Hawks on Friday, adding three rebounds, three assists and one steal.

    Advice: This was a brutal loss for the Bulls and Wade took to Twitter after the game. "That performance was AWFUL!!! I apologize to all the Chicago fans and Wade fans," Wade tweeted. The Bulls are back home on Saturday to face the Kings, so Wade will likely be out there based on these comments. He really only has mid-round upside going forward. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:38 pm
  • Jeff Teague scores 11 w/ seven assists
    Jeff Teague scored 11 points with seven assists, three rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple in Friday's loss to the Lakers.

    Advice: He was just 3-of-9 from the field in 33 minutes with six turnovers, but did hit all four of his free throws. Teague cooled off tonight, but he's been great for the most part this season and Pacers president Larry Bird made it clear that re-signing Teague in the offseason will be a priority. "We like Jeff. We like Jeff very much," Bird said. "We hope he’s a part of this franchise for a long time." Teague should be a top-50 option going forward with the Pacers making a playoff push. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:35 pm
  • Stephen Curry scores 24 points
    Stephen Curry scored 24 points against the Rockets on Friday with one rebound, seven assists, one steal and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

    Advice: The Warriors continue to get him more touches as the facilitator of the offense. Curry's disappointing December by his standards is way behind him and he can chalk it up to the X's and O's of the offense. Not that any Curry owner should've been worried, but he's back to being that team-carrying guy. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:20 pm
  • Ty Lawson (ankle) plays well in return
    Ty Lawson (ankle) returned to action on Friday vs. the Grizzlies and played well with 13 points and five assists off the bench.

    Advice: He shot 4-of-10 from the field in 23 minutes and also added four rebounds, one steal and one turnover. The Kings briefly used a two-PG lineup tonight, but we should see more of that moving forward with Rudy Gay (Achilles) out for the season. Lawson outplayed Darren Collison in this one and the Kings have lost four straight games, so it will be interesting to see if he's more involved on Saturday vs. the Bulls. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:22 pm
  • Wolves and Pistons talking trade?
    Minnesota and Detroit have discussed a point guard swap of Ricky Rubio and Reggie Jackson, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes and Marc Stein.

    Advice: It's certainly a curious move for the Wolves. Rubio is starting to play a lot better these days and their young guards were outstanding on Thursday night. We'll let you know of any other additional reports, but this is further confirmation of the Wolves looking to deal Ricky. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:41 pm
  • Ty Lawson says he will play against Memphis
    Ty Lawson (ankle) said he will play against Memphis on Friday night.

    Advice: He went through warmups and apparently everything went well. The Kings were ditching their two-PG lineups earlier this month, but it may be back out of necessity due to the Rudy Gay (Achilles) injury. Garrett Temple is still worth a look in standard leagues even though he'll play more two and three. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:57 pm
  • Ty Lawson will be a game-time call
    Ty Lawson (ankle) will be a game-time call to face the Grizzlies on Friday.

    Advice: He is going to warm up to see how he feels. Lawson had the same scenario last time and was expected to play, but he did not. If he can't go, Garrett Temple should get heavy run as a combo guard behind a busy Darren Collison. Arron Afflalo would also play more, but isn't a fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:48 pm
  • Ty Lawson (ankle) questionable for Friday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Memphis.

    Advice: Lawson did not play Wednesday after twisting his ankle in the second half of Sunday's game. Darren Collison is a tempting DFS play if Lawson does not suit on Friday. Collison played well on Wednesday, finishing with 11 points, nine assists and four steals in 37 minutes. Garrett Temple played 29 minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:37 am
  • Tony Parker (ankle) expected to play Saturday
    Tony Parker (ankle) is expected to play Saturday vs. the Cavs in Cleveland.

    Advice: Parker was a late scratch from the Spurs lineup on Thursday. "It has happened before where his ankle kind of gets locked up, so I think we know what we need to do for it and I think he'll be back for Cleveland," coach Gregg Popovich said on Thursday night. Dejounte Murray started in place of Parker on Thursday and played quite well, scoring a career-high 24 points on 7-of-11 from the field with two rebounds, two assists, one steal, one turnover and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:36 am
  • Kris Dunn scores five points in 25 minutes
    Kris Dunn scored five points with four assists, four rebounds, one block and one steal in 25 minutes on Thursday against the Clippers.

    Advice: Dunn started in place of the injured Ricky Rubio (hip) in the second half of tonight’s game. However, Tyus Jones started at point guard in the fourth quarter and finished with four points, four assists, and one 3-pointer in 12 minutes. Both of them were on the court to close out the game. If Rubio misses any time, Dunn and Jones would get a boost in playing time. In games where Dunn has played at least 24 minutes this season, he has averaged 5.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.2 points, and 3.0 steals per game. He will not light up the score board, but he is a great source of steals. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:37 pm
  • Austin Rivers scores 20 points vs. T-Wolves
    Austin Rivers scored 20 points with two assists, one rebound, one block and two 3-pointers in Thursday's 101-104 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Rivers fouled out with five seconds left in the game, but was feeling it tonight as he scored 20 points for just the sixth time this season. He continues to play big minutes, averaging over 35 minutes per game in January and playing at least 31 minutes in eight consecutive games. With Chris Paul (hand) out for 6-8 weeks, Rivers will remain a big part of the Clippers offense until Blake Griffin (knee) comes back. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:11 pm
  • Ricky Rubio (hip) doesn't return for Wolves
    Ricky Rubio didn't play in the second half of Thursday's game against the Clippers with tightness in his hip and Kris Dunn started the third quarter in his place.

    Advice: Rubio finished with zero points on 0-for-3 shooting with four rebounds, four assists and three turnovers in 17 minutes. The injury doesn't sound terribly serious, but owners will obviously want to watch for news on Rubio going forward. This is a potentially tough break, as he was playing very well over the last couple weeks, and Dunn and Tyus Jones would benefit if he's going to miss time. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:58 pm
  • John Wall scores 29 points in win at MSG
    John Wall scored 29 points in a 113-110 win at Madison Square Garden on Thursday, adding five rebounds, 13 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Revenge game for not making the All-Star starters? Whatever the case, Wall's Wizards are the hottest team in the East with their four-game winning streak -- nobody else has more than two straight wins. Not surprisingly, Wall has crushed in those four games, averaging 25.8 points, 4.5 boards, 10.0 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.8 treys. He'll obviously be an All-Star reverse and has first-round value in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:17 pm
  • Tony Parker to travel for Saturday @ CLE
    Tony Parker's left ankle locked up prior to Thursday's win over the Nuggets but he will travel with the team for Saturday's game at Cleveland.

    Advice: Rookie Dejounte Murray started in Parker's place tonight and went off for a career-high 24 points on 7-of-11 shooting and added two assists, a steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes. It sounds like there's a good chance Parker will be back on Saturday, which will obviously hurt Murray's chances for another big game. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:12 pm
  • Tony Parker (foot) ruled out for Thursday
    Tony Parker (left foot pain) will not play on Thursday against the Nuggets.

    Advice: This is not in a back-to-back set, so this is more about him not being 100 percent. Parker looked fine on Tuesday night with 29 minutes in a win over the Wolves. It sounds like a wear-and-tear issue for the veteran and he could miss more time to get him right. Patty Mills should get close to 30 minutes tonight and is worth a look as a pickup in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:06 pm
  • Tony Parker might be questionable Thursday
    Tony Parker has a sprained ankle and might not play on Thursday, according to Nuggets radio man Jason Kosmicki.

    Advice: We haven't heard a peep from the San Antonio reporters, so we're not sure what to make of this report. But where there's smoke there's fire, so watch for another update later. The Spurs play the Nuggets at 8:30 in San Antonio, so we should know more soon. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:58 pm
  • West All-Star starters named on Thursday
    Stephen Curry, James Harden, Kawhi Leonard, Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis were named as the Western Conference All-Star starters.

    Advice: That's right. Russell Westbrook is averaging a triple-double and he's not going to be starting the All-Star Game. Westbrook is also on pace for the record for usage rate and is second in the NBA in assists per game. Curry got a bump to get the nod over Westy due to the fan voting, but he's certainly playing like an All-Star. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:14 pm
  • Wade expected to play Friday and Saturday
    Dwyane Wade is expected to play on Friday vs. the Hawks and on Saturday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: It's great that he's planning on playing in both games of the back-to-back set, but don't be surprised if his minutes are held in check in both of them. The Bulls will likely make a final decision after Friday's game vs. the Hawks. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:32 am
  • Russell Westbrook gets his 21st triple-double
    Russell Westbrook picked up his 21st triple-double of the season on Wednesday with 27 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists, but he also had 10 turnovers in a lopsided loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Westbrook had his triple-double halfway through the third quarter, marking the 22nd time in his career that he's done it in three quarters or less. He made 8-of-23 FGs and 10-of-11 FTs tonight, with two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer, and continues to be a ridiculous fantasy asset on a nightly basis, especially in DFS and points leagues. Tonight's loss drops the Thunder into a virtual tie with Memphis for the No. 7 seed in the West, but they're still six games up on the No. 8 seed Nuggets. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:26 pm
  • John Wall scores 25 points in a win
    John Wall scored 25 points during a 104-101 win over the Grizzlies on Wednesday, adding two rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

    Advice: The Wizards are clearly playing their best ball of the season, winning six of their last seven games to get them to the No. 5 seed in the Eastern Conference. Wall has his fingerprints all over the recent run, averaging 20.4 points, 4.3 boards, 11.0 assists, 1.9 steals and 1.0 treys in those seven. He's an All-Star and the Wizards have won 13 straight at home. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:48 pm
  • Ty Lawson (ankle) ruled out for Wednesday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He tried to test out his ankle, but apparently wasn't as healthy as expected. With Lawson out tonight. Garrett Temple should get some minutes as the backup point guard to go with some minutes at the two. Darren Collison is also coming off a 21-pont game and could have some success against his former team. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:24 pm
  • Ty Lawson expected to play on Wednesday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) remains expected to play on Wednesday against the Pacers.

    Advice: This is a pretty much non-update, but it may also be the last one with how the Kings report their injuries. For now, expect Lawson to play and get minutes in the low 20s. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:14 pm
  • Emmanuel Mudiay plays well again on Tuesday
    Emmanuel Mudiay hit 5-of-7 shots and two 3-pointers for 14 points, six assists and two steals in 28 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Lakers.

    Advice: The Nuggets have now won three straight games and Mudiay is playing well again, averaging 16 points, 2.0 rebounds, 9.5 assists, and 2.0 steals on 11-of-19 shooting over his last two games. He was pretty bad prior to this two-game explosion, but it's time to make sure he's not sitting your league's waiver wire right now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:09 pm
  • Ricky Rubio scores 21 w/ 14 assists
    Ricky Rubio scored 21 points on 4-of-9 shooting with 14 assists in Tuesday's loss to the Spurs, adding two rebounds, two steals and three turnovers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: He set new career highs in free throws made (13) and attempted (14), so that's not a bad way to respond to the trade rumors. The Wolves are actively shopping Rubio according to The Vertical and the Kings are a rumored destination, but that would actually be a decent spot for him in terms of fantasy value. His owners should sit tight until we learn more, but it sounds like there's a decent chance that he's moved before the Feb. 23 deadline. There are a lot of teams in need of an upgrade at the point, so there's no need to panic if you own him. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:37 pm
  • Dwyane Wade scores 17, can't hit winner
    Dwyane Wade returned from a rest and played 35 minutes on Tuesday, hitting 8-of-21 shots for 17 points, five rebounds, two assists and a block in a loss to the Mavericks.

    Advice: Wade picked up a deflection after Wesley Matthews nearly stole the ball from Jimmy Butler and got a good look at the game-winning shot at the buzzer over Deron Williams, but it wasn't meant to be. Wade is a fine play on nights he's actually playing, But he had missed two of his previous four games coming into this one. The Bulls have another back-to-back this Friday and Saturday, and then again on Tuesday and Wednesday, so owners can only pray that he plays in more than two of those four games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:04 pm
  • Austin Rivers looking at an increased role
    Austin Rivers is looking at an increased role moving forward with Chris Paul (thumb) out 6-8 weeks.

    Advice: Rivers was going to lose some value with Blake Griffin (knee) nearing a return, but not so fast. With Paul out, both Rivers and Felton could realistically play over 30 minutes a night even with a healthy Blake. Rivers is averaging 16.8 points, 4.5 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.8 triples in January, and his usage rate climbs from 14.9 to 21.8 when Paul is off the court. Go pick him up. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:34 pm
  • MIN views Kris Dunn as long-term starter
    The Timberwolves reportedly view Kris Dunn as their long-term starting point guard.

    Advice: The Vertical broke news on Tuesday that Minnesota is actively shopping Ricky Rubio with the intent of being able to eventually turn over the reins to Dunn, so it’s highly likely that the rookie will be unleashed towards the end of the year. That being said, Dunn has a shaky jumper (37.8 percent shooting) and is not capable of consistently hitting the 3-point shot (0.4), so those two things will likely keep his value in check even when he's getting 30 minutes a night. Still, his upside in steals and assists makes him a reasonable guy to stash in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:59 pm
  • Report: Wolves actively shopping Ricky Rubio
    The Timberwolves are reportedly actively shopping Ricky Rubio.

    Advice: The Wolves are reportedly trying to package Rubio and Shabazz Muhammad in order to bring in another guard that would initially start, but eventually, accept a backup role behind Minnesota's No. 5 overall pick Kris Dunn. Thus far the Kings have been the only team to express strong interest in acquiring Rubio, but the Wolves don't like what they can offer, and there's reportedly no traction between those two clubs on the trade front. It's tough to predict what Rubio's outlook will look like on another team, but this report firmly puts Dunn on the radar as a quality deep league stash. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:48 pm
  • Ty Lawson (ankle) probable for Wednesday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Lawson twisted his left ankle in the second half of the Sunday's game vs. OKC and was unable to return. However, it appears that the injury is minor and that Lawson "isn't expecting to miss" the Kings next game, which is Wednesday vs. Indiana. Stay tuned for a formal update from the team regarding his status. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:12 am
  • Russell Westbrook scores 24 points in loss
    Russell Westbrook scored 24 points on 7-of-19 shooting with five rebounds, four assists, two steals, two triples and four turnovers in Monday's blowout loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: It's amazing that a line like this can actually be called an off night, but that's how good Westy has been this season. He's still averaging a triple-double on the year, so his owners have nothing to complain about. He gets a matchup with Kevin Durant and the Warriors on Wednesday, but he struggled in their first meeting with 20 points on 4-of-15 shooting. He will still be a recommended DFS target for obvious reasons. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:35 pm
  • Austin Rivers scores 16 w/ six assists
    Austin Rivers scored 16 points on 5-of-13 shooting in Monday's win over the Thunder.

    Advice: He played impressive defense on Russell Westbrook and is thriving with the first unit. Rivers logged 35 minutes and added six assists, two rebounds, one steal and two triples, and he could have the ball in his hands a lot more if Chris Paul (sprained thumb) misses any time. Rivers' usage rate rises from 14.9 to 21.8 when Paul is off the court, so he looks like a solid pickup in addition to Raymond Felton. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:18 pm
  • Alec Burks fizzles in nine minutes
    Alec Burks played just nine minutes and missed all four of his shots, failing to score a point in Monday's 106-101 win over the Suns.

    Advice: Joe Ingles started for Rodney Hood (knee) and played well, and Joe Johnson was Joe Cool off the bench with 15 points and three 3-pointers, so Burks looks like the big loser in the Hood-injury sweepstakes. If you picked up Burks in hopes of a decent week, we'd recommend throwing him back and taking a flier on Ingles or Johnson, instead. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:16 pm
  • Stephen Curry hands out 11 assists in win
    Stephen Curry scored 20 points and matched his season high with 11 assists in Monday's win over the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Curry was quiet when these two teams met on Christmas day, but he looked much more comfortable out there this time. He finished 7-of-20 from the field and 5-of-12 from beyond the arc, adding two rebounds and four steals in 31 minutes. Curry has been a new player since the turn of the year and was averaging 29.2 points, 6.2 assists and 4.2 3-pointers in his previous six January games. This is the Curry fantasy owners spent a top-3 pick on. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:55 pm
  • Mudiay dishes out a career-high 13 assists
    Emmanuel Mudiay handed out a career-high 13 assists to go along with 18 points, two 3-pointers, two rebounds and two steals in Monday's 125-112 victory over Orlando.

    Advice: Mudiay came into this contest struggling. He was shooting 28.9 percent from the floor, 15 percent from downtown and 50 percent on FT's over Denver's previous five games. However, he snapped out of that slump on Monday, as he was 6-of-12 from the floor and 4-of-4 from the stripe. It was the first time he's played more than 36 minutes since Nov. 18, due in part to Gary Harris (ankle) only playing three minutes. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:55 pm
  • Jeff Teague scores 16 w/ 10 assists
    Jeff Teague double-doubled with 16 points and 10 assists in Monday's 98-95 win over the Pelicans.

    Advice: Teague rolled his right ankle and hobbled to the bench, but fortunately he didn't miss any time. Teague had a right ankle sprain back in November and a left ankle sprain earlier this month, but it sounds like he escaped with a minor tweak. He finished 7-of-10 from the field and hit his only free throw, adding eight rebounds and one triple in 37 minutes. Teague should be fine for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings, but his owners should double check his status just in case his ankle swells up overnight. He's yet to miss a game this season. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:05 pm
  • John Wall scores 24 points in a win
    John Wall scored 24 points with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Blazers on Monday.

    Advice: The wrist and pinkie injuries sure don't seem to be bothering him. Wall continues to talk about tweaking his shot due to his right pinkie, but he's taking jumpers with confidence and still blowing by people on drives. The Wizards were incredible in the first half with a 71 true shooting percentage to get them to 75 points and basically put the game out of reach in the third quarter. Wall's surgeon for the procedures on his knees probably needs a raise. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:46 pm
  • Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) out next 4 games
    Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) will miss at least the next four games for the Pacers.

    Advice: Stuckey has suited up for just 17 of Indiana's 42 games this season, and there's no scenario out there where he would warrant a hold. Monte Ellis and C.J. Miles will continue to earn minutes in the 20s off the Pacers' bench, and Miles is worth a look for deep league GMs looking for some 3-point help. Rotoworld.com Jan 16, 11:52 am
    Injured
     
  • Russell Westbrook triple-doubles vs. Kings
    Russell Westbrook scored 36 points, with 11 rebounds, 10 assists, four steals and four 3-pointers in Sunday’s 122-118 victory over the Kings.

    Advice: He shot the ball well today, hitting 11-of-21 field goals and 4-of-5 from beyond the arc, while recording his 20th triple-double of the season. He does have a tendency to turn the ball over a lot, but makes up for it by stuffing the stat sheet on a nightly basis. He remains the league’s leader with a 41.1 percent usage rate. The Thunder are 16-4 whenever Westbrook has triple-doubled this season. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 9:52 pm
  • Ty Lawson exits Sunday's game vs. OKC
    Ty Lawson (ankle) twisted his left ankle and will miss the remainder of Sunday's game against the Thunder.

    Advice: Lawson played 20 minutes and scored four points with four assists, one rebound and one steal before leaving the game. If he misses any time, Darren Collison and Garrett Temple will get a boost. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 8:22 pm
  • Ricky Rubio hands out 10 dimes in loss to DAL
    Ricky Rubio went 2-of-9 from the field and 4-of-6 from the stripe during Sunday's loss to the Mavs, ending his evening with eight points, 10 assists, five boards, two steals and four turnovers.

    Advice: After a slow start to the season, Rubio has been steadily climbing up the rankings and over the past month he's emerged as a third-round stud in standard 9-cat leagues with averages of 8.4 points, 9.5 assists, 2.5 steals and 2.5 turnovers per game on 39.2 percent shooting. This was also his fourth straight game handing out at least 10 assists, so he's rolling right now. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 1:16 pm
  • Stephen Curry intends to re-sign with GSW
    Stephen Curry made it clear once again that he will re-sign with the Warriors this summer.

    Advice: "I can’t," Curry said when asked if he could see himself leaving the Warriors as a free agent. "Like I’ve said from Day 1 when I was first asked about free agency, this is a perfect place to play. Bay Area fans are amazing, our organization’s amazing, we’ve put together an amazing team that’s competing for championships every year." Under the new CBA, the Warriors could potentially offer Curry a five-year extension worth about $209 million, while opposing teams would only be able to offer a four-year deal worth about $133 million. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 6:52 am
  • Alec Burks will be in the rotation
    Alec Burks said he's close to 100 percent after his eight-point game in 15 minutes on Saturday.

    Advice: He said he's been waiting for this for "like a year" and he said he knew he was ready to play. Burks acknowledged he had a serious injury and he's still improving. He said he wanted to get to the rim more and he plans on doing that more as he gets more comfortable. With Rodney Hood (knee) possibly missing time, Burks is a speculative add in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 15, 2:17 am
  • Dante Exum a non-factor vs. Orlando
    Dante Exum scored two points in seven minutes with one assist in Saturday’s win against the Magic.

    Advice: Exum appears to have fallen behind in Utah’s backcourt rotation. Alec Burks is back in the picture and played well tonight, so Exum could continue to struggle for playing time in the foreseeable future. He should not be owned in any format. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 9:18 pm
  • Alec Burks scores eight points in 14 mins
    Alec Burks played 14 minutes and scored eight points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in Saturday’s 114-107 victory of the Magic.

    Advice: Burks was recalled from the D-League on Jan. 12 and could hang around for a while, as Rodney Hood (knee) suffered a hyperextended knee in tonight’s game. He has only appeared in six games for the Jazz this season, but could see a larger role if Hood misses any time. He looked good tonight and can play multiple positions for Utah. That being said, for now, Burks can be left on waivers, but he is someone worth keeping an eye on. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 9:12 pm
  • John Wall scores 25 points in win vs. Philly
    John Wall (wrist, pinkie) looked great in a 109-93 win over the 76ers on Saturday, scoring 25 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.

    Advice: Before the game, he said his hand injuries were affecting his shooting "big time" and he also was trying to figure out how to get the tape on his right pinkie to not affect him on the release either. Yeah, it didn't seem to bother him at all with a flurry of three treys in just a few minutes during the third quarter. Wall looks like he's good to go and should definitely be on the All-Star team. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 7:59 pm
  • Tony Parker scores 14 points
    Tony Parker scored 14 points as the only point guard against the Suns on Saturday, adding one rebound, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: He did take a hard knee to his right thigh from Tyler Ulis and did check out. Parker did not go to the locker room and he did return. He's not the most durable guy out there, so maybe he has a contusion to his thigh. The Spurs could need him badly this week as the only healthy point guard, so we'll be watching if this thigh issue is a problem. He's not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 6:33 pm
  • Wade not playing on Sunday in Memphis
    Dwyane Wade (rest) will not play against the Grizzlies on Sunday.

    Advice: He did not travel after Saturday's game, so it's scheduled rest. On Saturday, he was more aggressive than usual with 22 points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes. The Bulls have another back-to-back starting on Friday and another one on Jan. 24-25, so Wade could sit in some of those. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 6:11 pm
  • Alec Burks will be in the rotation
    Alec Burks will be in the rotation with Joe Johnson (rest) out on Saturday against the Magic.

    Advice: We saw Burks get five minutes on Friday night, but he didn't play well on the offensive side. The Jazz loved him at times last year with some point guard minutes, but he's in a tight spot for minutes. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 4:49 pm
  • Austin Rivers scores 15 points in start
    Austin Rivers scored 15 points with one rebound, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer against the Lakers on Saturday.

    Advice: He likely has the starting job locked up with his dad trusting him against small forwards of all sizes until Blake Griffin (knee) comes back. Rivers has been very effective in his last four, averaging 19.0 points, 3.8 boards, 4.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.0 treys. He'll be taking a big hit once BG comes back and only has three games for the upcoming week, so Rivers' value isn't the greatest going forward. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 3:26 pm
  • Dwyane Wade to play Saturday, rest Sunday
    Dwyane Wade will play on Saturday against the Pelicans and will rest on Sunday against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: It's a back-to-back set for Wade, but he should get heavy minutes tonight now that there is a plan in place. He's an interesting option with Jimmy Butler possibly not at 100 percent. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 12:22 pm
  • John Wall (wrist/pinky) will play Saturday
    John Wall (wrist/pinky) will play Saturday vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Wall did not practice with the team on Friday, but will be in the starting lineup for Saturday's game. It sounds like he will have to play with some sort of splint on the jammed pinky of his right (shooting) hand. The good news is that all X-Rays and MRI's on his pinky and swollen left wrist came back negative. As of now, it is unknown if the coach Scott Brooks will have a minutes restriction on Wall. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 9:17 am
  • John Wall (hand) listed as probable Saturday
    John Wall (wrist/pinky) is listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. Sixers.

    Advice: Wall is dealing with a swollen left wrist and a jammed pinky finger on his right hand. Game notes are not overly reliable, so take this news with a grain of salt. However, it is encouraging that it appears Wall avoided any significant injury. Assuming he plays, it will be interesting to see if either injury impacts his shooting/production. Rotoworld.com Jan 14, 8:28 am
  • Ty Lawson scores 17 points vs. Cavs
    Ty Lawson scored 17 points with four rebounds, four assists and three turnovers in 26 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

    Advice: The Kings are really starting to ditch the two-PG lineups, which is going to hurt Lawson and Darren Collison, who scored 13 points with one rebound, four assists and two 3-pointers. Lawson is trending back down and is only a borderline asset in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Jan 13, 10:53 pm
