  • Marc Gasol (foot) out Sunday, Z-Bo starting
    Marc Gasol (left foot strain) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Warriors, and Zach Randolph will start in his place.

    Advice: Brandan Wright should also see minutes, and Memphis even recalled Deyonta Davis from the D-League for emergency depth tonight. Gasol should be considered day-to-day, with his next chance to play coming in Sacramento on Monday. Rotoworld.com 23 minutes ago
  • Robin Lopez bounces back w/ 18 pts on 9-of-13
    Robin Lopez bounced back on Sunday with 18 points on 9-of-13 shooting, five rebounds, two assists, one block and zero turnovers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Cristiano Felicio (back) was out of commission again and the Bulls desperately needed RoLo to give them solid minutes, so his efficiency was a welcome surprise. He was coming off a dreadful game in which he scored one point and collected one rebound in 18 minutes, and his true value lies somewhere in between these two extremes. Rotoworld.com 49 minutes ago
  • Frank Kaminsky scores 10
    Frank Kaminsky made 3-of-11 from the field for 10 points with seven rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Suns on Sunday.

    Advice: He's kind of back in a slump again. After an impressive 20-point game last week, Kaminsky averaged just 11.2 points, 5.4 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.8 blocks and 2.2 treys on just 31.0 percent from the field in his last five. Because of how his fantasy game is so dependent on him making shots, he can be annoying to own at times like these. He has the upside and role to have value, though. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:18 pm
  • Jared Dudley puts up another good game
    Jared Dudley scored 12 points with two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers against the Hornets on Sunday.

    Advice: He's playing arguably his best ball since November and the Suns not having depth is a big reason why. The Suns do want Dragan Bender (ankle) to return at some point this year and the rookie is doing some on-court work, so that casts some doubt on Dudley the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:44 pm
  • Devin Booker scores 23 points vs. Hornets
    Devin Booker scored 23 points with four rebounds, five assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Hornets on Sunday.

    Advice: Not exactly a 70-point explosion here. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist did a really nice job on Booker and there's no doubt teams will be starting their scouting reports with Booker as a scorer going forward. He did also have some nice passes in this game, which would be a key piece for him to be a fantasy stud. Booker should be one of the top scorers in the final few weeks of the season and getting to the line more is also a key development. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:27 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver back in action on Sunday
    Anthony Tolliver will return vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

    Advice: Tolliver was rested on Friday, along with Darren Collison, but both of those guys are active for today's game. Meanwhile, both Kosta Koufos and Arron Afflalo are getting the night off. This is going to be standard operating procedure the rest of the way for Sacramento's veterans. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:23 pm
  • Michael Beasley (knee) may practice next week
    Michael Beasley (left knee) could resume practicing next week, according to coach Jason Kidd.

    Advice: Beasley has "made progress" while the Bucks were away on an extended road trip, and the "plan" is to have him playing before the end of the regular season. That would be great news for the Bucks' depth, but it's unlikely to impact many fantasy rosters. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:42 am
  • Jeff Green (back spasms) ruled out Monday
    Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play on Monday vs. the Raptors.

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

  • Kosta Koufos will rest on Sunday
    Kosta Koufos will rest on Sunday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: This is the front end of a back-to-back set, meaning Koufos should be good for Monday's game vs. the Grizzlies. He's going to be rested way too much to help fantasy owners going forward. Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis should get a nice bump with Koufos out, but Labissiere is the better fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:29 am
  • Arron Afflalo and Kosta Koufos resting Sunday
    Arron Afflalo and Kosta Koufos will rest against the Clippers on Sunday.

    Advice: Of course they will. This is the front end of a back-to-back set, so both players should be active on Monday vs. the Grizzlies. Expect plenty of DNPs for the veterans in Sacramento going forward. Buddy Hield is the only wing worth owning on the Kings right now. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:27 am
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) out Sunday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: This will be his second game in a row on the shelf. He's dealing with soreness in his surgically-repaired knee, so the 76ers are going to be cautious moving forward. Richaun Holmes has been a must-own player for weeks, but Shawn Long is on the radar in deeper leagues after he scored a career-high 18 points with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals in 19 minutes vs. the Bulls on Friday. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:25 am
  • Al Horford being more selective with shots
    Al Horford said he's taking less 3-pointers per game because he's trying to be more aggressive in the paint.

    Advice: After averaging 4.1 triples per game through the first four months of the season, Horford is only attempting 1.7 per game in March. "With the 3-point shot, I’ve been working on it quite a bit. I feel confident about taking them when I’m open, taking them when they’re there, and just being a little more selective with the shots that I take." His fantasy owners probably don't mind, as his FG percentage is way up and he's averaging 8.9 points in the paint over his last 13 games. He's been a top-10 player in standard leagues over the last couple weeks and is peaking at the perfect time for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:26 am
  • Scott Brooks praises Kelly Oubre
    Wizards coach Scott Brooks said Kelly Oubre has been a "superstar" in his role off the bench.

    Advice: "The game for Kelly, to me, is simple. Just compete," Brooks said. "Deflections. Getting into the passing lanes. Contesting at the rim. Switching on our pick-and-roll coverage because he can guard one through four depending on the matchup and then rebound. The game rewards him when he does that." The second-year wing had one of his best games of the season against LeBron James and the Cavs on Saturday, finishing with 16 points, seven rebounds, one steal and no turnovers in 26 minutes. However, unless we learn that Bojan Bogdanovic (back) will miss more time, most fantasy owners can leave him on the wire for now. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:36 am
  • KAT finally has a bad game
    Karl-Anthony Towns scored 16 points with five rebounds and one block in 31 minutes during a 112-100 loss to the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: It's been a long, long time since KAT had a dud like this one. In fact, the 21 combined points and boards are his lowest since Nov. 23 against the Pelicans. Over his previous games since the break, Towns averaged 28.1 points, 13.9 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.1 blocks and 1.4 treys. Even with the Wolves basically out of the playoffs, KAT is headed for a monster finish. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:06 pm
  • Serge Ibaka scores 18 points in win
    Serge Ibaka scored 18 points with eight rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers during a 94-86 win over the Mavs on Saturday.

    Advice: The Raptors actually haven't been too bad without Ibaka off the court, but he's putting up some good stats these days. In his last four active games, he's averaged 16.8 points, 7.0 boards, 0.8 assists, 0.5 blocks and 2.3 treys. He's been performing as expected as a sixth-round player since arriving in The North. DeMar DeRozan also added 18 points during this win. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Kelly Oubre scores 16 points in 26 minutes
    Kelly Oubre was superb off the bench against the Cavs on Saturday, making 7-of-8 from the field for 16 points with seven rebounds, one steal and no turnovers in 26 minutes.

    Advice: It was a fantastic showing for Oubre, who went up against LeBron James throughout this game. You could say this was his best game of the season with terrific play on offense, defense and especially in transition. If Bojan Bogdanovic (back) misses more time, maybe Oubre is worth a look in deep leagues. Most owners can leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:34 pm
  • Marc Gasol (foot) questionable for Sunday
    Marc Gasol (left foot strain) is questionable for Sunday against the Warriors.

    Advice: The good news is that this isn't the same foot that needed surgery last season. For what it's worth foot strain is typically not as worrisome as a sprain, but of course every injury is different. Gasol has played a whopping 37.6 minutes per game over his last five games and the Grizzlies may slightly dial him back even if he's OK. If he can't go, we'll see a lot more Brandan Wright with some added Zach Randolph and JaMychal Green. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:12 pm
  • Serge Ibaka, P.J. Tucker starting at forwards
    Cory Joseph, DeMar DeRozan, P.J. Tucker, Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas will start against the Mavs on Saturday.

    Advice: Ibaka is back from his one-game suspension and should see plenty of minutes against the slower Mavs team. Tucker will also remain in the starting lineup with DeMarre Carroll (back) out, but we'll see a lot of Norman Powell off the bench. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:21 pm
  • Kosta Koufos scores two points
    Kosta Koufos scored two points with two rebounds, one assist and one block in 14 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: He'll get more rest going forward and there is just no upside in fantasy right now. Even if you're in a 40-man league, go pick up someone else. The Kings may even shut him down to look more at their youth. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:48 pm
  • Robin Lopez scores just one point
    Robin Lopez returned from his one-game suspension with one point, one rebound and one block in 18 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: The Bulls were absolutely smashed in the paint, giving up 70 points to just 30 on their end. Lopez is usually a solid defender inside, but there hasn't been much to his fantasy value all season anyway. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:21 pm
  • Devin Booker scores 70 points in Boston
    Devin Booker exploded for a franchise-record 70 points during a 130-120 loss to the Celtics on Friday, adding eight rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He was 21-of-40 from the field and 24-of-26 from the line to drop the most points in a 2016-17 NBA game and the most points ever against the Celtics. Booker is the youngest player ever to score at least 60 and is just the sixth player ever to hit the 70-point mark in a game (Bryant, Chamberlain, Thompson, Baylor, Robinson). He went crazy in the second half with 51 points, playing all 24 minutes with a 56.3 usage rate and a 72.4 true shooting percentage. It was pretty clear coach Earl Watson was looking to get Booker going with plenty of fouls to help Booker score so many late points and he was asked about it after the game. "Do something about it," Watson said. Maybe, we'll see a few more monster Booker games the rest of this season. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:02 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky goes scoreless on Friday
    Frank Kaminsky missed all nine of his shots on Friday vs. the Cavaliers and failed to score in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Five of his nine shot attempts were from beyond the arc, but at least he grabbed eight rebounds with a pair of assists. Frank the Tank was averaging 14.3 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.7 blocks, 0.5 steals and 2.0 triples in his previous six games, so his owners should give him another chance. The Hornets play four games next week after Sunday's contest vs. the Suns. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:48 pm
  • Jared Dudley hands out 10 dimes
    Jared Dudley matched his career-high 10 dimes against the Celtics on Friday, adding six points, four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

    Advice: He shockingly had six assists in the final 14 minutes to help get Devin Booker going. The Suns need bodies out there, so Dudley should continue to play minutes in the 20s. He's still not going to be worth owning in most leagues. Plus, maybe Dragan Bender comes back. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:46 pm
  • Kosta Koufos starting vs. the Warriors
    Kosta Koufos is starting vs. the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: Koufos was rested on Wednesday vs. the Bucks, but should see his normal workload tonight. We still like Skal Labissiere's outlook going forward and Koufos could get more DNPs down the stretch, so Koufos belongs on the wire in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:16 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver will rest on Friday
    Anthony Tolliver will rest on Friday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: The Kings are calling it "planned rest," so expect Tolliver to be back in action on Sunday. With Tolliver out, Skal Labissiere should get a nice bump in minutes tonight. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:45 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) out against the Bulls
    Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not play against the Bulls on Friday night.

    Advice: The team will give him treatment on his sore knee during the game. Okafor's right knee soreness has been ongoing for most of the past 12 months and there's a good chance he misses additional time. Richaun Holmes should start and play big minutes as a must-start option in fantasy -- he's a strong DFS play, of course. Shawn Long should back him up with some Dario Saric at the five, as well. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:36 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor doubtful for Friday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) is unlikely to play against the Bulls on Friday.

    Advice: His knee soreness won't go away and coach Brett Brown made it sound like he won't have Okafor. "It think if you made me guess right now, it’s going to be doubtful that he plays," Brown said. If Okafor is out, Richaun Holmes should get big minutes as a starter with Shawn Long backing him up. Okafor isn't worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:49 pm
  • Jeff Green (back) ruled out Friday vs. DET
    Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play Friday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: This is the second straight game Green has missed due to low back pain. Mario Hezonja is expected to soak up the majority of minutes left behind by Green. Hezonja played 23 minutes on Wednesday, scoring eight points and grabbing seven rebounds. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:24 pm

  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) a GTD for Friday vs. CHI
    Jahlil Okafor (right knee soreness) is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision Friday night in Chicago.

    Advice: Okafor got hit on the outside of his troublesome right knee in Wednesday night's the loss to OKC. Okafor was unable to participate in shootaround on Friday morning. All indications from the Sixers and coach Brett Brown point towards Okafor being closer to "doubtful" than "questionable." We will have to wait until later this evening for confirmation. If Okafor does not play, Richaun Holmes will draw the start and would see plenty of minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:26 am
  • Jeff Green (back spasms) a GTD for Friday
    Coach Frank Vogel said that Jeff Green (back spasms) will be a game-time decision on Friday night vs. Detroit.

    Advice: Green did not play on Wednesday due to the back issue. With Green sidelined, Mario Hezonja logged 23 minutes, finishing with eight points and seven rebounds. Mario would likely see 20-plus minutes again on Friday if Green is unable to play. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:23 am

  • Marc Gasol gets quiet double-double in defeat
    The Grizzlies suffered their second straight loss on Thursday, as Marc Gasol finished with 13 points, 10 rebounds and three assists in 39 minutes.

    Advice: Gasol made one 3-pointer and blocked a shot, so it wasn't a total loss, but he shot just 6-of-15 from the field with six turnovers. Mike Conley was better with 22 points (7-of-18 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), six assists, two rebounds, one 3-pointer and three turnovers, but the Grizzlies' twin pillars didn't have enough to earn a road win in San Antonio tonight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:38 pm
  • Devin Booker pours in 28 in loss on Thursday
    Devin Booker scored a game-high 28 points in Phoenix's lopsided loss to the Nets on Thursday night.

    Advice: Booker has been battling through an ankle injury and had been struggling with his shot coming into Thursday, as he was a just 7-of-29 from the floor over his last two games. Booker was again inefficient, shooting just 9-for-26 from the field, including 3-of-9 from downtown. He did make 7-of-8 from the free-throw line. Booker also added three steals and two rebounds. The good news is that he played 40 minutes in a blowout, indicating his ankle wasn't giving him any trouble. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:47 pm
  • Al Horford's value is trending up
    Celtics coach Brad Stevens hinted that he will keep staggering the playing time for Al Horford and Isaiah Thomas.

    Advice: Horford played only 2.4 minutes per game without Thomas during the final nine games before the break, but since then that average has gone up to double digits. "We still run the same offense, all the same concepts," Horford said. "I think that I may post a little more with the second unit, and guys will look to play off of me, and just create plays that way." Horford's value has been trending up quickly since this rotation tweak and Stevens deserves a lot of credit for maximizing the big man's talent. He's averaging 18.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.8 blocks, 0.8 steals and 0.8 triples over his last five games, so he's peaking at the perfect time for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:41 am
  • Arron Afflalo returns to action in loss
    Arron Afflalo scored 12 points with two rebounds and two 3-pointers against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Kings will continue to rest their veterans and chances are Afflalo won't play either Friday or Sunday. Afflalo can remain on the waiver wire in just about all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:42 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor plays 17 minutes in return
    Jahlil Okafor scored six points with two rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Thunder went right at him and Okafor continues to have a bullseye on him when he's out there. Okafor's right knee could be a factor for his subpar play, and interestingly today is the one-year anniversary of when he had surgery. The 76ers will probably manage him the rest of the way, so he's really not worth owning in standard leagues until he proves otherwise. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:36 pm
  • Al Horford puts up another strong line
    Al Horford scored 15 points with eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Maybe Isaiah Thomas missing time has helped Horford get back on track. In his last five games, Horford averaged 18.4 points, 8.4 boards, 6.2 assists, 1.8 blocks, 0.8 steals and 0.8 treys -- Thomas did not play in two of those. Horford's fantasy owners can probably start expecting early-round value going forward after a very quiet February. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:20 pm
  • Arron Afflalo starting, Temple to Kings bench
    Arron Afflalo (personal) will start for the Kings on Wednesday, sending Garrett Temple to the bench.

    Advice: The Kings' rotations are perpetually in flux, and tonight it'll be Afflalo getting the nod vs. Milwaukee. He's done nothing this season to encourage owners to pick him up. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:29 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky rolls along w/ 18 points Wed
    Frank Kaminsky had another productive evening on Wednesday, going 6-of-13 from the field with four 3-pointers for 18 points.

    Advice: Kaminsky added five boards, one assist and one block in 33 minutes, as Charlotte escaped Orlando with a comeback victory tonight. His perimeter shooting helped the Hornets erase an early deficit to take the lead in the fourth quarter, bolstering their odds of overtaking Miami, Detroit and Chicago for the No. 8 seed in the East. Frank the Tank is rolling right now. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:43 pm
  • Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Wednesday
    Kosta Koufos (rest) will not play Wednesday against the Bucks.

    Advice: It's a home game for the Kings, so they'll give their fans a look at the youth today. Georgios Papagiannis had a productive weekend on the road and should be looking at minutes in the 20s. He's a sneaky guy to use in fantasy, especially with how the Kings are giving him the ball. Koufos is not worth owning in most fantasy leagues anymore. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:46 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) will start on Wednesday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) will start Wednesday vs. the Thunder, with Richaun Holmes coming off the bench.

    Advice: Okafor will be returning from a one-game absence, and his return to action will result in fewer minutes for Holmes. Okafor is good for some points and boards, but he typically doesn't offer much on the defensive end and turnovers have been an issue as of late. He's more of a deep league guy, while Holmes should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:08 pm
  • Serge Ibaka suspended for one game
    Serge Ibaka has been suspended for one game.

    Advice: That means he's not going to play against the Heat on Thursday. Ibaka threw multiple punches at Robin Lopez, so he was clearly going to get at least one game. With him out, Jonas Valanciunas may actually play in the fourth quarter while Pat Patterson figures to get more run. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:54 pm
  • Robin Lopez, Serge Ibaka suspended one game
    Robin Lopez and Serge Ibaka have been suspended for one game for throwing punches at each other.

    Advice: This one was coming all along today and Lopez only getting one game is good news. He won't be playing tonight against the Pistons and the Bulls may have to get creative with their center minutes. Cristiano Felicio is questionable to play, so he would be busy if he's able to give it a go. We might see some Bobby Portis at the five. Daily Slant: If Cristiano Felicio is able to suit up, he'd likely eat up 25-30 minutes of court time in order to deal with Andre Drummond, making him a potential GPP punt play at minimum price. In the event that he sits, both Bobby Portis and Nikola Mirotic could see upticks in playing time, with Joffrey Lauvergne also looming as an option at the 5. Mirotic looks like the best upside play in the group after seeing at least 26 minutes in four of the last five games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:52 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Okafor injured his knee Sunday night and did not suit up on Monday. He will be evaluated before Wednesday's game to determine his status. If Okafor does not play, Richaun Holmes, who is coming off a monster 24-point, 14-rebound effort, will draw another start. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:14 am
  • Jeff Green (back) will not play Wednesday
    Coach Frank Vogel said that Jeff Green (back spasms) has been ruled out of Wednesday night's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: This will be just the third game Green has missed all season. However, he has apparently played through back spasms intermittently. Green had been averaging 17.5 minutes per game off the Magic's bench in March. Mario Hezonja will likely soak up the majority of the extra minutes available on Wednesday.

  • Karl-Anthony Towns scores 25 points in loss
    Karl-Anthony Towns scored 25 points on 8-of-17 shooting (8-of-9 FTs) in a loss to the Spurs on Tuesday, adding 14 rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and one triple.

    Advice: The Wolves looked like they had this game won until a third-quarter meltdown. The loss means that the Wolves are now 5.0 games behind the No. 8 seed (Denver) in the West, but Towns is averaging the most minutes per game in the NBA since the break and his owners probably don't need to worry about him being shut down -- he's yet to miss a game during his NBA career. His value should be safe and he's a top-3 fantasy option every time he takes the floor. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:01 pm
  • Marc Gasol held to 10 points
    Marc Gasol was held to 10 points on 5-of-13 shooting in a loss to the Pelicans on Tuesday.

    Advice: The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for Memphis. Gasol salvaged his line with eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block, but the bad news for his fantasy owners is that the Grizzlies only have two more games this week. The Grizzlies are fighting for playoff seeding, so Gasol hopefully won't be rested any time soon. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:32 pm
  • Devin Booker struggles through ankle
    Devin Booker played through his ankle injury on Tuesday but hit just 4-of-16 shots and missed all four of his 3-pointers for 11 points, four boards, five assists, a steal and a season-high seven turnovers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: Hey, at least he played, right? Booker missed Sunday's game and is really struggling with his shot right now, hitting just 13-of-55 of them over his last three games. He did have 28 points on 13-of-26 shooting a week ago Sunday, so hopefully his ankle is feeling better soon and he starts dropping his shots again. But he's not exactly helping his fantasy owners in playoff crunch time at the moment. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:06 pm
  • Robin Lopez ejected on Tuesday
    Robin Lopez was ejected from Tuesday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: He got tangled up with Serge Ibaka and both players started throwing punches, but none of them landed. A suspension is certainly on the table, so look for Cristiano Felicio to benefit if Lopez misses time. RoLo finished with 12 points, four rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 25 minutes. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:56 pm
  • Serge Ibaka and Robin Lopez ejected Tuesday
    Serge Ibaka and Robin Lopez were ejected from Tuesday's game in the third quarter.

    Advice: Both players got tangled up and punches were thrown, but none of them landed. However, a suspension for both players is a very real possibility. If Ibaka is suspended for Thursday's game vs. the Heat, Jonas Valanciunas would likely be the biggest winner, while Patrick Patterson and maybe even Lucas Noguiera would benefit. Ibaka finished with 16 points, six rebounds, one assist and two triples in 26 minutes. You can check out the incident in the link below. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:55 pm
  • Devin Booker (ankle) starting vs. the Heat
    Devin Booker (ankle) is starting vs. the Heat on Tuesday.

    Advice: He was a full participant during shootaround and was upgraded from questionable to probable early Tuesday morning. The Suns might be cautious with him going forward as they continue to tank, but his owners can deploy Booker tonight. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:42 pm
  • Devin Booker, Barbosa likely to play Tuesday
    Devin Booker (ankle) and Leandro Barbosa (illness) are on track to play Tuesday vs. Miami.

    Advice: Booker was a full participant during shootaround and is listed as probable, so all signs are pointing towards him returning from a one-game absence on Tuesday night. With Booker back in the fold, Derrick Jones Jr. will return to the bench, and the usage rate of guys like T.J. Warren and Tyler Ulis will suffer a slight hit. With Barbosa back in action, Ulis will be less likely to see his playing time eclipse the 40-minute mark. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:09 pm
  • Devin Booker (ankle) probable for Tuesday
    Devin Booker (ankle) participated in morning walk-through and is probable for Tuesday night's game vs. Miami.

    Advice: We were first made aware of the fact that Booker was battling ankle issues late last week, and he was sidelined for Sunday's game vs. the Pistons. If Booker does return on Tuesday, Derrick Jones Jr. would likely get bumped back to the bench. We should have an update from the team later this afternoon confirming Booker's status, and if the Suns plan to keep him on any type of minutes restrictions going forward. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:23 am
  • Al Horford scores 16 points
    Al Horford scored 16 points with nine rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal vs. the Wizards on Monday.

    Advice: He finished 6-of-11 from the field, but only managed to hit 4-of-7 from the line. Horford scored a season-high 27 points in his previous outing and is averaging 17.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 2.2 blocks, 0.8 steals and 1.0 triples over his last five games. He's been underwhelming for most of the season, but at least he's stepping up in a big way during the fantasy playoffs. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:53 pm
  • Frank Kaminsky scores 14 points
    Frank Kaminsky scored 14 points in 36 minutes vs. the Hawks on Monday.

    Advice: Cody Zeller picked up five fouls, so that explains the spike in minutes for Frank the Tank. He finished 5-of-11 from the field with five assists, three rebounds, one steal, two blocks and three triples, and with a playoff berth looking unlikely, he should be heavily involved going forward. He will likely be more of a late-round player while Cody Zeller and Marvin Williams are active, though. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:13 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor, Henderson out Monday vs. ORL
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) and Gerald Henderson (rest) have been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Magic.

    Advice: Okafor tweaked his knee on Sunday, and while a sore knee doesn't seem like a very serious issue, it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him miss more than a few games given how the 76ers tend to handle injuries. With Okafor on the sidelines, Richaun Holmes will return to the starting five, and Henderson's absence will open up some opportunity for guys like Timothe Luwawu. For now, we'll be considering Okafor questionable for Wednesday's game in OKC. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 2:41 pm
  • Booker, Barbosa, Price questionable Tuesday
    Devin Booker (ankle), Leandro Barbosa (illness) and Ronnie Price (leg) are being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game in Miami.

    Advice: With all these guys on the sidelines on Sunday, we saw Derrick Jones Jr. move into the starting five, and it was T.J. Warren and Tyler Ulis being forced into heavy minutes while operating as Phoenix's top two targets on offense. If Booker, Barbosa and Price are all again forced to the sidelines on Tuesday night, it'll be more of the same, and owners can expect to get another update following shootaround. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 1:32 pm
  • Serge Ibaka shoots well from field
    Serge Ibaka was 7-of-11 from the field in Sunday's 116-91 victory against the Pacers, finishing with 16 points, five rebounds and a blocked shot in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Ibaka's .636 shooting percentage in the blowout win tied his best in 13 games since coming over from the Magic in a trade back in mid-February. While his offense has been better lately, he has managed just two blocked shots over past three games to give his fantasy owners a new reason to wring their hands and shake their heads. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 6:19 pm
  • Karl-Anthony Towns makes career-high four 3s
    Karl-Anthony Towns tied his career-high with four 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing with 33 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal in a loss at New Orleans.

    Advice: KAT predictably rose to the challenge vs. the Pelicans' mega frontcourt of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, but his efforts weren't enough to avoid the Wolves' third straight loss. They scored easily enough, getting 109 points on 51.8 percent shooting, but they gave up 123 points and were outscored in transition 33-13. They head home to face the Spurs on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 5:44 pm
  • Arron Afflalo (personal) out Sunday vs. Spurs
    Arron Afflalo (personal) has been ruled out for Sunday's game.

    Advice: No reason has been given for Afflalo's absence, so it's unclear when he might rejoin the team. The Kings are tanking, with their young guys getting more and more minutes, so there's no reason to think the 31-year-old Afflalo will play a big role down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 2:29 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) travels w/ team to ORL
    Jahlil Okafor (sore right knee) will travel with the Sixers to Orlando, where he will continue to be evaluated.

    Advice: Okafor exited Sunday's game with the issue, which has plagued him all season, and just because he's traveling to Orlando doesn't mean he'll play vs. the Magic. Owners should check back for updates after Monday's shootaround. If he is ruled out, expect Richaun Holmes to soak up most of his minutes, with Shawn Long backing him up. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 2:21 pm
  • Al Horford scores season-high 27 in loss
    Al Horford scored a season-high 27 points during a 105-99 loss to the 76ers on Sunday, adding eight rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

    Advice: That's two 20-plus scoring games in his last three. Before that, Horford didn't hit 20 points in any game since Jan. 25, so it's been a prolonged offensive slump for one of the most consistent offensive players over the last decade. Not having Isaiah Thomas obviously helped and he does have a 22.7 usage rate without him and he's even more efficient, too. We saw Horford tear it up earlier this year even with IT next to him, so maybe this gets him going. His owners have to love this line heading into four home games this week. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 1:10 pm
  • Devin Booker (ankle) will not play on Sunday
    Devin Booker (ankle) will not play Sunday against the Pistons.

    Advice: He said on Friday that his ankle was bothering him and the Suns will be holding him out for his first game since October. Considering the Suns are looking for lottery balls, it's possible they hold Booker out for additional time. The Suns will also have to play some new guys at shooting guard, including newly-signed Jarell Eddie. We will likely see some Derrick Jones Jr. and Jared Dudley out of position in this game, as well. T.J. Warren is going to be very busy. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 12:07 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not return
    Jahlil Okafor will not return to Sunday's game against the Celtics due to right knee soreness.

    Advice: This is the same troublesome knee for Okafor and the 76ers will likely be taking it easy on him. His owners in fantasy may just want to go ahead and drop him. Richaun Holmes will pick up big minutes and should be owned in all leagues. We'll see Shawn Long back him up for owners in deep leagues. Okafor finished with four points and one rebound in 12 minutes. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 11:22 am
  • Devin Booker (ankle) questionable for Sunday
    Devin Booker (ankle) is questionable for Sunday against the Pistons.

    Advice: This has been a story for the weekend with Booker saying he's been dealing with nagging injuries lately. He said he needed some treatment and even said "we'll see" when he was asked about missing time. We should have an update before tip later. If he's out, the Suns will be in desperation mode with probably more Derrick Jones Jr. and Jared Dudley playing out of position. T.J. Warren and Tyler Ulis would also benefit while we may even see some Jarell Eddie. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 10:54 am
  • Robin Lopez scores 14 points vs. Utah
    Robin Lopez scored 14 points with five rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 30 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: He went up against Rudy Gobert and lives to tell about it. Lopez is coming off a 25-point Friday, so he heads into next week with some nice momentum. He still only has mid-round upside and is flirting with that recently even with this two strong games, so he's not exactly a strong add. Although, with four games and some favorable matchups this week, he's someone fantasy owners may want to call on. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 9:22 pm
  • Frank scores 14 points vs. Wizards
    Frank Kaminsky scored 14 points with four rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

    Advice: Even with Cody Zeller playing one of his best games of the season, coach Steve Clifford still went with Kaminsky for some important minutes at the five late. He looks like he'll continue to see about 15 minutes at both the four and five, which should put him at around 30 minutes in a very tight frontcourt rotation. He likely only has late-round upside, but Kaminsky should make an impact to finish the season. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 7:19 pm
  • Kosta Koufos scores nine points
    Kosta Koufos scored nine points with six rebounds, two assists and one block in 23 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: He is playing through a right hand injury and does have two fingers taped. According to the Kings broadcast, Koufos said he is going to have to play through it for a month or so. Perhaps this will be a reason to hold Koufos out of games as the season winds down. With Georgios Papagiannis turning in his best game as a pro, we'll likely be seeing Koufos' playing time start to fade. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 2:40 pm
  • Anthony Tolliver plays off the bench
    Anthony Tolliver scored 10 points with two rebounds and two 3-pointers against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: The Kings used him at the three at times in this game. Tolliver is likely going to be resting in several games to finish out the season, especially with both Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis playing better lately. Leave Tolliver on the wire. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 2:30 pm
  • Arron Afflalo (personal) won't play Saturday
    Arron Afflalo (personal) is not with the team and will not play Saturday vs. OKC.

    Advice: The Kings are in full tank mode and continue to shuffle their lineup haphazardly on almost a nightly basis. Afflalo has been putting up decent numbers, averaging 11.6 points and 2.9 rebounds over his last seven games, but it's hard to rely on him due to the frequent nights off. He should be left on waivers in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 9:45 am
  • Jeff Green scores just two points
    Jeff Green made 1-of-9 from the field for two points with eight rebounds, one assist and one turnover against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: This is totally unacceptable on St. Patrick's Day. Anyway, Green just doesn't have fantasy value when the Magic are healthy up front. He doesn't even have much when players are out. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 10:55 pm
    New Player Note
    Jeff Green Orl - SG,SF,PF
    Out
     
  • Al Horford puts up another strong line
    Al Horford scored 14 points with eight rebounds, four assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and four blocks against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He looks like he's back. Since returning from his elbow sprain, Horford averaged 14.2 points, 7.2 boards, 5.2 assists, 1.6 blocks, 1.0 steals and 1.2 treys on 57.4 percent from the field. Horford's owners probably shouldn't feel 100 percent about him returning to the player he was back in 2016, but he looks like he can be trusted as an early-round guy. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 9:23 pm
  • Karl-Anthony Towns scores 31 points in loss
    Karl-Anthony Towns scored 31 points on 11-of-17 shooting vs. the Heat on Friday.

    Advice: He didn't record a block or a steal for the second straight game, but hit all eight of his free throws with 11 rebounds, one assist and one triple in 38 minutes. The Wolves are now 4.5 games behind the Nuggets for the No. 8 seed out West, but KAT has yet to miss a game in his NBA career and there's very little risk of a possible shut-down. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 7:55 pm
  • Robin Lopez scores season-high 25 points
    Robin Lopez scored a season-high 25 points in a loss to the Wizards on Friday.

    Advice: He was five points shy of his career-high and has only scored 25+ points five times in his career. There are more touches up for grabs in Chicago with Dwayne Wade (elbow) out for the season, so Lopez should get a small bump. He finished 12-of-16 from the field with 12 rebounds, two assists and one block, and with four games on the schedule for the Bulls next week, he's back on the radar as a pickup. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 7:33 pm
  • Oubre wants to find a way back into rotation
    Kelly Oubre is hoping to earn more playing time and a consistent role in the Wizards rotation.

    Advice: Oubre has seen his minutes reduced dramatically since the trade that brought in Bojan Bogdanovic. Oubre averaged 20.9 minutes per game over the first 50 contests of the season. However, he is averaging just 8.0 minutes over the Wizards last six games and then drew a DNP-CD on Wednesday. Oubre is still confident in himself, but fantasy owners should have already moved on. He should remain on waivers. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 9:46 am
  • Marc Gasol triple-doubles in win over Hawks
    Marc Gasol hit 7-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 18 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists, giving him his third triple-double of his career.

    Advice: He's the Grizzlies franchise leader in trip-dubs and he's on fire right now, averaging 17.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five. He's doing it all right now and is a big reason the No 7 Grizzlies have bounced back to win three straight games as they chase the No. 6 Thunder and No. 5 Clippers in the Western playoff hunt. Rotoworld.com Mar 16, 7:35 pm
  • Serge Ibaka scores 10 points
    Serge Ibaka scored 10 points with three rebounds, one assist and one block in 27 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday during a 123-102 loss.

    Advice: No revenge game this time. That hot start from Serge has gone south in The North. In his last three games, Ibaka averaged 6.3 points, 5.3 boards, 2.0 blocks and 0.3 treys. Obviously those blocks are great and his minutes are still likely to be over 30 when the Raptors are in a close game. Expect him to flirt with early-round value. Rotoworld.com Mar 16, 7:00 pm
  • Arron Afflalo returns to the lineup
    Arron Afflalo scored 14 points with four rebounds in 30 minutes as a starter against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: While he did play well, Afflalo is likely going to get rested at some point again. Afflalo can stay on the wire in just about all leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 15, 11:50 pm
  • Kosta Koufos looks good in his return
    Kosta Koufos scored 13 points with six rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 20 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Advice: Koufos was back in the starting lineup after getting rest on Monday. He looked to be on his way to a really strong game, but Skal Labissiere went scorched-earth mode in the fourth and Koufos never checked back in. Koufos did rest on Monday and there's a very good chance he's not going to play on Friday. He can't be owned in fantasy with so much uncertainty about his status going forward. Rotoworld.com Mar 15, 11:43 pm
  • Marc Gasol scores 27 points
    Marc Gasol scored 27 points during a 98-91 win over the Bulls on Wednesday, adding six rebounds, seven assists and one block in 37 minutes.

    Advice: It was the Gasol and Mike Conley show with those two scoring 16 of the final 18 points to seal this road win. The Grizzlies are now going with arguably their most talented starting five with those two, JaMychal Green, Tony Allen and Vince Carter, which has helped them turn around their post-break woes. As for Gasol, he's been slightly down as a sixth-round player since the break, but he should improve on that. Plus, the Grizzlies are going to try for home court in the first round.
