  • Magic says teams are inquiring about Williams
    Magic Johnson acknowledged that a majority of the trade calls that have come in have centered around Lou Williams.

    Advice: "If you're gonna get him it's gonna take a lot to get him," Johnson said in regards to Williams. Sweet Lou is on a very cap friendly deal, with just $7 million owed to him next season, so he's one of the more likely guys to go at the deadline if the Lakers do manage to pull off a trade. So far he's been linked to the Jazz and the Wizards and there are sure a few more teams to add their names to the mix as we approach the deadline. A Williams departure would benefit D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson the most. Rotoworld.com 32 minutes ago
  • Magic wants more minutes for Ivica Zubac
    Magic Johnson said he'd like to see Ivica Zubac get more minutes during the final few months of the NBA season.

    Advice: "I think he has really established himself as a quality backup center and I would like to see him get even more minutes," said Johnson. Head coach Luke Walton has already hinted that he'll make a better effort to give Zubac some extended run as the NBA season comes to a close, so he makes for a fine stash for anyone in need of a big that can really rack up the swats.

  • Joel Bolomboy recalled from the D-League
    Joel Bolomboy has been recalled from the D-League.

    Advice: Bolomboy is a negligible part of the rotation in Utah and he belongs on the waive wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com 56 minutes ago
  • Report: Pascal Siakam headed for D-League
    The Raptors will reportedly send down Pascal Siakam for a D-League stint.

    Advice: With Jared Sullinger getting healthy and Serge Ibaka now in Toronto, Siakam will likely be doing a lot of this. He has no fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:28 pm
  • Warriors recall Briante Weber from D-League
    The Warriors have recalled Brainte Weber from the D-League.

    Advice: Weber's second 10-day contract will expire on Friday, so if the Dubs want to bring him on long-term, they'll have to make that decision soon. Weber has zero fantasy value in Golden State. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:21 pm
  • Report: DET open to moving Andre Drummond
    The Pistons will reportedly not discourage other teams from inquiring about Andre Drummond at the trade deadline.

    Advice: Most of the trade news that has come out of Detroit has indicated Reggie Jackson as one of the more likely players to go, but there have been whispers that Stan Van Gundy would be willing to part ways with Drummond should the right deal come along. Drummond should be a double-double machine regardless of his jersey, but if he's sent away, we could see Jon Leuer's minutes consistently in the high-30s while Aron Baynes would see an uptick in minutes as well. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:19 pm
  • Report: P.J. Tucker highly coveted around NBA
    The Suns have reportedly received inquiries regarding the availability of P.J. Tucker from the Raptors, Celtics, Wizards, Clippers, Hawks and Jazz.

    Advice: Tucker is very likely to be moved at the deadline, and in terms of fantasy value, Los Angeles and Atlanta look like the best potential destinations as he would assuredly lose value with any of the other aforementioned teams. T.J. Warren could see a nice boost in value if the Suns don't bring back another wing, so he's someone to consider stashing away ahead of the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:06 pm
  • HEAT recall Okaro White from D-League
    The Heat announced on Tuesday that they have recalled Okaro White from their D-League affiliate.

    Advice: The Heat sent White down this past weekend so he could participate in the D-League All-Star Game. White has minimal fantasy value. He has appeared in 14 games for Miami this season and is averaging 4.2 points and 2.5 rebounds in 16.2 minutes. He can be left on waiver wires. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:41 am
  • Nets lower asking price on Brook Lopez
    The Nets have lowered their asking price on Brook Lopez and are now willing to accept a first and second-round pick, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: The Nets were initially demanding two first-round picks in exchange for their best player. However, after seeing how little the Kings got in return for DeMarcus Cousins, it appears they have been forced to re-access Lopez's market value. If Lopez were to get traded, his usage rate would likely decline, as he is the focal point of the Nets offense, but a new team would likely play him more than Brooklyn does. Ultimately, we would have to wait and see where he might end up before attempting to predicting his future fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:01 am
  • ESPN: Pacers have interest in Jahlil Okafor
    Indiana is pursuing Jahlil Okafor prior to Thursday's trade deadline, according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

    Advice: At this point, it seems as though more than half the league has been attached to a Jahlil Okafor rumor. Chris Hayes of ESPN had previously reported that the Pacers would be willing to trade their 2017 first-round pick in the right deal if it meant improving its roster, which would ultimately increase their chances of re-signing Paul George. However, a pick in the mid-teens seems like an awfully small return for Sixers to accept for Okafor, who was selected with the third overall pick in the 2015 draft. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:58 am
  • Report: BOS may discuss Bogut trade w/ Dallas
    The Mavs and Celtics are expected to discuss a deal that would send Andrew Bogut to Boston in exchange for one of the Celtics first-round picks, according to Mike Fisher of Scout.com.

    Advice: This rumor has not been confirmed by any other national outlets, so it's unknown how accurate it is. The report states that such a trade is dependant on Boston first making another, larger move. The deal with Dallas would purportedly center around Bogut and his expiring contract in exchange for Tyler Zeller and one of Boston's less valuable future first-round picks. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:45 am
  • Cavs keeping an eye on Langston Galloway
    If Langston Galloway is waived by the Kings, the Cavs would "love to have him," according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

    Advice: There have been conflicting reports as to whether Sacramento intends to waive the recently-acquired Galloway. Adrian Wojnarowski initially reported that Galloway would be waived, but Kings GM Vlade Divac said on Monday that the Kings did not have any plans to release him. Galloway is unlikely to have much fantasy value, whether he stays in Sacramento or ends up in Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:53 am
  • Report: Pels willing to pay Holiday max money
    Basketball Insiders is reporting that the Pelicans are willing to offer Jrue Holiday a "max or near max deal" when he hits free agency this summer.

    Advice: Holiday has played extremely well this season, especially of late. Over the Pels last 13 games, Holiday is averaging 21.8 points, 8.4 assists, 5.2 rebounds, 2.2 steals and 2.0 treys, while shooting 55.6 percent from the floor and 42.6 percent from 3-point territory. Heading into this season, it was unknown what kind of salary Holiday would be able to demand when he hit free agency, but his strong play may force New Orleans' hand, especially after they just committed to a "win now" approach by trading for DeMarcus Cousins. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:34 am
  • Report: Suns interested in Derrick Favors
    The Salt Lake Tribune is reporting that the Suns have expressed interest in potentially trading for Derrick Favors.

    Advice: Favors has had a disappointing season due largely to a nagging knee injury he has been battling since training camp. He is averaging just 9.2 points (while shooting 46.9 percent from the floor and 63.5 percent from the free throw line) and 6.1 rebounds in the 40 games he has appeared in. Still, when healthy, he has shown star potential and he's locked into an affordable contract through 2018. According to the report, "Utah has been willing to listen" to offers for Favors. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:57 am
  • IND continues to reject any calls about PG13
    The Pacers continue to reject any calls about Paul George, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN.

    Advice: Per Lowe, Indiana is banking on the new CBA increasing their odds to retain PG13. George is under contract for at least one more season after this. Furthermore, the Pacers will be able to pay him far more than any other team even if he doesn't sign an extension and ultimately becomes an unrestricted free agent in July of 2018. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:16 am
  • ESPN: Jazz have interest in Lou Williams
    Some members of the Utah Jazz front office have expressed interest in trading for Lou Williams, according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

    Advice: The Lakers are in the early stages of a rebuild, so flipping the 30-year old Williams for a draft pick certainly makes sense. Earlier this week it was reported by multiple outlets that the Wizards had discussions with the Lakers regarding Williams. L.A. surely hopes a bidding war drives up the asking price. If Lou Will does get dealt, D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson would see a boost in playing time and fantasy value over the final two months of the season. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:02 am
  • Mario Chalmers to audition for the Pelicans
    The Pelicans are looking to add a guard and will host Mario Chalmers, Quinn Cook, Reggie Williams and Hollis Thompson for a tryout this week.

    Advice: After trading away Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, and Langston Galloway in the DeMarcus Cousins deal, the Pelicans roster is a bit unbalanced. Thus, they are looking to add depth to their backcourt. Chalmers recently auditioned for the Cavs but did not sign with Cleveland. He has plenty of NBA experience but is still working his way back from a torn Achilles injury that he suffered last March. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:51 am

  • Nets not 'actively shopping' Brook Lopez
    According to the New York Porst, the Nets are not "actively shopping" Brook Lopez, as they have found other teams are unwilling to meet their asking price.

    Advice: Brooklyn was willing to trade Lopez if they got two first-round picks in return. However, with DeMarcus Cousins netting relatively little in return for Sacramento, Brooklyn saw that the market had been set. In addition, New Orleans was one of the teams that the Nets were discussing a deal with. Also, the Nets don't own the rights to their first-round pick this year or next, so they have no motivation to dump Lopez simply to secure a higher draft pick. It now seems likely Lopez will remain with the Nets past the trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:34 am
  • Report: Chris Paul to re-sign with Clippers
    Basketball Insiders is reporting that Chris Paul and the Clippers have already "verbally agreed" to signing a new, long-term contract this summer.

    Advice: CP3 has a player option of $24.3 million for the 2017-18 season. He is expected to opt out this summer and then sign a new, five-year deal worth north of $200 million. Paul turns 32 in May, so inking to him to a massive, long-term contract is somewhat risky, as he will be making over $30 million annually during his age-35 and age-36 seasons. However, he is still playing at a very high level and his game is not overly dependent on athleticism, so he will likely age better than other comparable point guards. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:24 am

  • ESPN: Wolves inquire about Derrick Rose
    According to Ian Begley of ESPN, the Wolves have inquired about the availability of Derrick Rose.

    Advice: The Wolves are "among several teams" to reach out to the Knicks regarding a potential Rose deal, but it's not clear what Minnesota is offering. Rose will be a free agent this summer, so the Knicks will have to keep their asking price down. Rose played seven seasons under coach Tom Thibodeau, so he should be able to hit the ground running if he was moved to Minnesota. However, unless Ricky Rubio is part of the proposed deal, Rose would lose a lot of fantasy value on the Wolves. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:40 pm
  • BOS not expected to trade for Blake Griffin
    The Celtics have reportedly "talked intermittently" with the Clippers about Blake Griffin, but a deal "is extremely unlikely."

    Advice: Griffin is set to hit free agency this summer, so the Celtics aren't going to throw away assets at the deadline when they can simply pursue him during the offseason if they still have cap space. The Pacers aren't returning Boston's calls about Paul George, so it sounds like Jimmy Butler remains their primary target with the deadline looming. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:31 pm
  • Jazz exploring the market for Derrick Favors?
    Zach Lowe of ESPN said that the Jazz have explored the market for Derrick Favors over the last few weeks.

    Advice: Favors hasn't been the same since he suffered a knee injury during the preseason, but it sounds like the Jazz are just doing their due diligence. The Jazz are hoping to re-sign both George Hill and Gordon Hayward, so they are going to be financially strapped when Favors hits free agency during the summer of 2018. The Jazz don't want to weaken their team ahead of the playoffs, so if they do move Favors they probably wouldn't do it until the offseason. There's no reason to stash Trey Lyles outside of very deep leagues unless we get wind of something. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:18 pm
  • ESPN: Wizards interested in Lou Williams
    According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Wizards have "explored trading a protected first-round pick" for Lou Williams.

    Advice: This confirms a report by The Vertical on Sunday, so there's definitely something here. The Lakers are going to be sellers at the deadline and are looking for draft picks, while the Wizards are looking to upgrade their second unit for a playoff push. Williams is on the books for $7 million this season and $7 million in 2017-18, and with averages of 18.6 points, 3.2 assists, 2.3 rebounds, 1.1 steals and 2.1 triples in just 24.2 minutes per game this season, it's easy to see why contenders will have their eyes on him at the deadline. If Williams finds a new home, that will benefit D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:05 pm
  • Timberwolves interested in Tony Snell?
    The Wolves reportedly have a "tepid interest" in acquiring Tony Snell at the deadline.

    Advice: Wolves head coach Tom Thibodeau coached Snell when he was in Chicago and it's no secret that Minnesota could use some help on the wings with Zach LaVine (knee) out for the season and Lance Stephenson's 10-day contract off the books. It's not crazy to think that Snell could start on the Wolves next to Andrew Wiggins, but this report is firmly in the rumor stage and Snell doesn't have much upside anyways. He's not worth stashing right now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:54 pm
  • P.J. Tucker the 'most likely' to be moved?
    Zach Lowe of ESPN is reporting that P.J. Tucker is the "most likely" to be traded by the Suns at the deadline.

    Advice: Phoenix is taking calls on "most" of their veterans and that surely includes Tyson Chandler and Brandon Knight, but Tucker will likely draw the most interest because of his cheap expiring contract. Previous reports have indicated that the Suns are holding out for a first-round pick, but that seems a bit ambitious. The Raptors, Clippers and Celtics have all been linked to Tucker in recent days, but a trade would shatter his fantasy value and open the door for T.J. Warren to have a consistent role with minutes in the 30s. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:50 pm
  • K.J. McDaniels could be on the move?
    The Rockets may move K.J. McDaniels prior to the deadline according to Zach Lowe of ESPN.

    Advice: McDaniels isn't in the rotation right now and the Rockets are chasing a "win-now move," so his contract is expendable. He would likely be a "sweetener" in a larger deal, so there's no reason to stash the athletic wing. Nothing is imminent on the trade front for Houston, though they were recently linked to Denver's Wilson Chandler. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:44 pm
  • SAC plans to keep Langston Galloway and Evans
    Kings GM Vlade Divac said that the Kings currently do not have any plans to release Langston Galloway or Tyreke Evans.

    Advice: An earlier report by Adrian Wojnarowski of the Verticle stated that the Kings intended to waive Galloway, but Divac is apparently deviating from that standpoint, although he did leave the door open by saying "at least for now." Galloway is in an overly crowded backcourt in Sacramento, so if he does stay with the team, it's unlikely he'll have much value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:00 pm
  • Richardson says he's ready to make an impact
    Josh Richardson (foot) said he's "excited" to get back to the court and "make an impact" for his team after the All-Star break.

    Advice: "I feel like I can get a lot of growth done still. There’s still a lot of time left," said Richardson. "I think I’ve grown a lot, but I’d like to do a lot more on the court." The Heat will resume practice on Wednesday, but all indications are that Richardson will be in uniform for Miami's first game after the break, Friday vs. Atlanta. Rodney McGruder figures to return to the bench once Richardson is fully up to speed, and guys like Dion Waiters and Tyler Johnson could be losing some touches on offense. Richardson makes sense as a speculative add if you've got someone to cut. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:17 pm
    Injured
     
  • Rockets interested in Wilson Chandler?
    According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, the Rockets are another team to keep an eye on in pursuit of Wilson Chandler.

    Advice: In case you missed it, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reported on Sunday that the Clippers and Thunder are going to make a push for Chandler at the deadline. There were some rumors going around in early February that Chandler was unhappy with his role in Denver, so he could be available for the right price. A move to Houston wouldn't be ideal for Chandler's fantasy value because they are set at SF and PF with Trevor Ariza and Ryan Anderson, but it would give them a solid second unit that already includes Eric Gordon and Sam Dekker. This report is firmly in the rumor stage. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:56 am

  • Tim Frazier looking at a bump in minutes?
    Tim Frazier is likely looking at a bump in minutes in New Orleans.

    Advice: With Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway out of the picture, Frazier becomes the primary backup behind Jrue Holiday and could also see more time in two-PG lineups -- Frazier has logged over 200 minutes next to Jrue Holiday this season. If you need a PG in a deep league, taking a flier on Frazier makes some sense given how thin the Pelicans are in their backcourt. He has season averages of 8.7 points, 5.7 assists, 2.9 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 0.7 triples in 25.1 minutes per game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:10 am
  • Darren Collison and McLemore are available?
    According to Chris Mannix of The Vertical, Darren Collison, Ben McLemore and Arron Afflalo are all "available" with the deadline looming.

    Advice: The Kings moved on from DeMarcus Cousins on Sunday which signaled the beginning of a very long rebuild. Collison is set to become a free agent this summer and the Kings probably aren't confident about their ability to re-sign him, so moving him now for a draft pick makes sense before he walks for nothing. His owners will be hoping that he lands in a favorable spot, but a move would likely hurt his fantasy value. Ty Lawson is the big winner here if the Kings find a new home for Collison, unless of course the Kings bring in a young PG. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:40 am
  • Langston Galloway to SAC in Cousins deal?
    Langston Galloway will reportedly be traded to the Kings as part of a deal sending DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans.

    Advice: He is fully expected to be waived, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. Galloway had some bright spots earlier this season while Jrue Holiday was out, so he should get some interest on either waivers or as a free agent. He has been out of the rotation at times lately, so he's almost certainly going to be added as a second-string guy at best. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:54 pm
  • Report: Celtics interested in P.J. Tucker
    The Celtics have reportedly expressed "deep interest" in P.J. Tucker.

    Advice: Tucker would add some solid depth to the Celtics, but his playing time would take a substantial hit in Boston, so Tucker owners should be hoping that he remains in Phoenix past the deadline. There have been more than a few trade rumors regarding Tucker, though, so him remaining with the Suns is far from a certainty. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:06 pm
  • Lou Williams a target for the Wizards?
    Lou Williams could be a potential trade target for the Wizards according to The Vertical.

    Advice: Williams is on the books for $7 million this season and $7 million in 2017-18, so the Sixth Man of the Year candidate is on a bargain of a contract. The Lakers aren't going anywhere this season and would probably be willing to flip Williams for a pick, and Washington "has shown an inclination" to give up a future first-round pick. Washington's bench isn't loaded by any means, so it's not crazy to think that Williams' value would be fine there. If he finds a new home, that should benefit D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:55 am
  • Wilson Chandler linked to Clippers, Thunder
    Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical is reporting that the Clippers and Thunder could make a push for Wilson Chandler at the deadline.

    Advice: Both teams are in the market for a SF, as the Clippers were previously linked to Carmelo Anthony and the Thunder had their eyes on Rudy Gay (Achilles) before his injury. There was a report in early February that Chandler wanted a trade due to "inconsistency with his role," but his minutes have stabilized due to a lot of injuries in Denver. The Nuggets are committed to making a playoff push and won't just give Chandler away, but it's worth noting that Danilo Gallinari's name is also floating around the rumor mill. A trade could hurt Chandler or Gallinari, but it would open up minutes for impressive rookie Juancho Hernangomez. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:43 am

  • Report: Blazers were very close on Okafor
    The 76ers pulled Jahlil Okafor from their lineup last week because a deal with Portland was close to happening, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

    Advice: The Blazers lost interest in this deal because they went with Denver's offer for Jusuf Nurkic and a first-round pick for Mason Plumlee. The Blazers were reportedly interested in Okafor before this, but it's interesting to hear that may have been the main reason why Okafor was out of the lineup. The second-year big man may be the most likely to be traded before Thursday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:37 pm
  • Joel Embiid wants 76ers to keep Jahlil Okafor
    Joel Embiid said he wants the Sixers to keep Jahlil Okafor, as opposed to trading him at the deadline.

    Advice: "We got a lot of talent, and I feel we can use everybody if we want to get to where we want to," said Embiid. "We have a lot of talent. Anytime you have that type of talent, you got to find ways to make it work." The Sixers have seemingly been on the brink of an Okafor deal for a week now, but Okafor is still a member of the 76ers. With five days remaining before the Feb. 23 deadline, plenty more rumors involving Okafor will inevitably surface. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:48 am
  • Briante Weber assigned to D-League
    The Warriors assigned Briante Weber to the D-League on Friday.

    Advice: The move will allow Weber to participate in Saturday morning's D-League All-Star game. Weber has appeared in five games with the Warriors this season, averaging 1.6 points and 1.0 assist in 8.2 minutes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:22 am
  • Pacers could ship their first-round pick
    The Pacers have made their first-round pick available to help Paul George, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

    Advice: This is nothing new after they traded their first-round pick last year to get Thaddeus Young. According to the report, the Pacers are hoping that pick would translate to the addition of either an established wing or established frontline player. As we saw last week, the Pacers really need some depth at power forward while Glenn Robinson III isn't exactly a strong starter. This shouldn't affect George, Myles Turner or Jeff Teague, assuming the Pacers don't make a massive deal. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:09 pm
  • Davis wants Pelicans to re-sign Jrue Holiday
    Anthony Davis said he plans to be "very involved" in the Pelicans efforts to re-sign Jrue Holiday this summer.

    Advice: Holiday will be one of the more sought-after free agents on the open market this summer. He has been remarkably efficient on offense this season. He's shooting a carer-high 46.8 percent from the floor and 39.3 percent from 3-point territory. Davis, who signed a five-year extension last summer, wants Holiday to stay in New Orleans. "I talk to Jrue all the time. He'll make his own decisions, but of course, we like him here," said Davis. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:39 am
  • Andrew Bogut doesn't believe he'll be traded
    Andrew Bogut doesn't believe he will be moved prior to the NBA trade deadline.

    Advice: Bogut played 18 minutes on Wednesday, his first appearance in February. When asked afterward about a potential trade, Bogut replied: "That's not a question for me to answer. But I don't think anything's going to happen." Bogut has been unable to stay healthy this season and has very limited fantasy value, whether he stays in Dallas or is traded elsewhere. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:45 am
  • Derrick Rose viewed as a trade target
    Multiple teams view Derrick Rose as a potential trade target, according to ESPN's Ian Begley.

    Advice: While Carmelo Anthony rumors continue to swirl, ESPN reports that Rose is attracting some attention from other teams in need of point guard help. Rose has been putting up impressive numbers of late. Over the Knicks last four games, Rose is averaging 19.0 points (on 57.9 percent shooting), 5.3 assists and 4.5 rebounds. If he is traded, his fantasy value would likely take a hit, as Rose would probably see fewer minutes and a reduced usage rate on a new team. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:38 am
  • Paul George scores 17 on off shooting
    Paul George made 6-of-19 from the field for 17 points during a 111-98 loss to the Wizards on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

    Advice: Coach Nate McMillan left George in a little longer than usual in the third, but it still wasn't enough to now put the Pacers on a six-game losing streak. George has been particularly bad in those last four, making just 34.4 percent from the field in those losses. A big reason why is he's made just three shots at the rim and went just 4-of-22 on his mid-range shots -- that's usually the main reason why he slumps. He'll head to his fourth All-Star Game and look to get it going again after that. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:46 pm
  • Joel Bolomboy assigned to D-League
    Joel Bolomboy has been assigned to the D-League.

    Advice: With the Jazz poised to make the playoffs this season, there simply isn't a path to minutes for the rookie. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:52 am
  • Blake Griffin scores 17 points vs. Hawks
    Blake Griffin scored 17 points during a 99-84 win over the Hawks on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, nine assists, two blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: The Clippers won this game with defense to end their first half on a four-game winning streak. They were dominating with defense earlier this season and are 19-3 when they hold their opponents under 100 points this season. Griffin is also coming into the break on a roll, averaging 26.7 points, 9.4 boards, 5.9 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.7 treys on 53.4 percent from the field and 80.8 percent from the line in his previous February games. He'll have a tough time keeping up these numbers when Chris Paul (hand) comes back and BG has been a little injury prone, so this may be a decent sell-high moment. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:31 pm
  • P.J. Tucker plays through tweaked back
    P.J. Tucker played through a back issue on Wednesday vs. the Lakers, finishing with nine points on 3-of-6 shooting with three boards and one triple in 21 minutes.

    Advice: He briefly went to the locker room after falling into the camera area, but the fact that he returned to a game that the Suns won by 36 points is a great sign. He also gets a full week of rest during the All-Star break. Tucker is going to draw some interest at the deadline, but his owners won't miss him too much if he's dealt to a contender. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:52 pm
  • Derrick Rose hits 11-of-21 shots, scores 25
    Derrick Rose stayed hot on Wednesday, hitting 11-of-21 shots for 25 points, but it wasn't enough to avoid a road loss to the Thunder.

    Advice: Rose heads into the All-Star break on an upswing, having averaged 19.0 points on 33-of-57 shooting (57.9 percent) in his past four games. He rounded out tonight's line with seven assists, four rebounds and two steals in 38 minutes, which is all his owners can ask for. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:40 pm
  • Andre Drummond quiet vs. the Mavericks
    Andre Drummond was eerily quiet vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday, finishing with nine points, 11 rebounds, three assist and two turnovers in 19 minutes.

    Advice: He picked up three fouls in the first half and couldn't get it going the rest of the night, finishing 4-of-8 from the field. Drummond also had a tough time sticking with Dirk Nowitzki on the perimeter, so the Pistons turned to Aron Baynes for most of the night. According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, the Pistons have quietly explored the "trade market for each of its franchise centerpieces," but Lowe added that a Drummond deal is a longshot at this point. His value is safe and expect him to bounce back after the break against the Hornets on Feb. 23. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:53 pm
  • P.J. Tucker (back) returns to the game
    P.J. Tucker returned to the game in the third quarter on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Suns have this game in the bag, so Tucker returning with a 20-plus scoring lead is a great sign. He's fine. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:44 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor back in action, plays 17 mins
    Jahlil Okafor returned to action on Wednesday, posting four points, four rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 17 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Okafor had been a DNP-CD recently, due to swirling trade rumors, but Philly surprisingly did an about-face and activated him tonight. He had a few defensive lapses and didn't do much to increase his trade appeal, but he's still a prime suspect to be playing elsewhere after the break. He's just a stash in the hopes that he lands in an ideal spot. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:36 pm
  • Andrew Bogut plays 18 minutes in return
    Andrew Bogut (hamstring) returned to action on Wednesday vs. the Pistons, scoring four points on 2-of-4 shooting with eight rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He hasn't played since Jan. 30 and wasn't even expected to give it a go tonight, but the Mavs probably wanted to prove that he was healthy with the trade deadline looming -- Bogut's name has been in the rumor mill all season and his expiring contract makes him an obvious trade chip. Bogut is a nice per-minute guy, but the problem is that he can't really handle significant workloads at this point in his career. He would likely join a contender if he was moved, so there's not much stash appeal here. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:20 pm
  • P.J. Tucker (back) questionable to return
    P.J. Tucker (back) suffered a lower back contusion on Wednesday and is questionable to return.

    Advice: He fell into the camera area and limped to the locker room. Tucker was up-ended by the cameraman and landed on the area near his hip. If he can't return, we'll see more Marquese Chriss and T.J. Warren. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:17 pm
  • Paul George starts hot, finishes cold in loss
    Paul George went ice cold after a strong start on Wednesday, finishing a loss to the Cavs with 13 points on 4-of-19 shooting, seven rebounds, three assists and no defensive stats in 36 minutes.

    Advice: George recently expressed his frustration with the Pacers' struggles. "We see what works for us and then we go away from it," George said. "It's very frustrating, especially losing to Eastern [Conference] teams, where these games are going to come down to late March, early April, where we're playing desperate basketball trying to make the playoffs." Indiana is riding a five-game losing streak, but they have one more chance to turn things around in Thursday's pre-break finale. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:16 pm
  • Lopez hits six 3-pointers and blocks 8 shots
    Brook Lopez posted a historic stat line in the Nets loss to Milwaukee on Monday night, as he became the first player in NBA history to make at least six 3-pointers and block eight shots in a game.

    Advice: Lopez scored 36 points on 12-of-20 shooting, including 6-of-10 from 3-point territory. In addition to the eight blocks, he also added four rebounds, one assist and one steal. The eight blocks tie a career-high. Lopez had made a total of three 3-pointers over the first eight years (487 games) of his NBA career. He enters the All-Star break this season having knocked down 90 treys in 51 games. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:09 pm
  • Wilson Chandler (sick) out against the Wolves
    Wilson Chandler (illness) is out against the Wolves on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He was very unlikely to play, so he'll have the All-Star break to feel better. Chandler was also on the trade block, but that may have changed due to his new role at small forward. For tonight, we should get another heavy dose of Juan Hernangomez. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:25 pm

  • Malone not expecting Wilson Chandler to play
    Coach Mike Malone said he's not expecting Wilson Chandler (illness) to play against the Wolves on Wednesday.

    Advice: That means Juan Hernangomez is the heavy favorite to start and will try to build off his career-high 27 points against the Warriors. Will Barton would also be in a great spot for tonight. We'll have another update on Chandler later this evening, but Hernangomez looks like a nice play tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:05 pm

  • Update: Wilson Chandler is now questionable
    Updating a previous item, Wilson Chandler (illness) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday against the Wolves.

    Advice: He was ruled out earlier today, but apparently he is feeling better with this newest injury report update. If Chandler can't go, Juancho Hernangomez will likely join his bro, Willy, as a starter tonight. Will Barton and Gary Harris would also benefit while we could see some Mason Plumlee play a handful of PF minutes. Daily Slant: Even if Chandler is able to suit up, the Denver side still has plenty of appealing options in what should be one of the best games on the slate. Nikola Jokic is a lock and load option regardless of Chandler's status, but Jokic would only become more appealing if Chandler sits. Jameer Nelson and Will Barton both figure to continue seeing minutes in the mid-thirties, and while Juan Hernangomez isn't likely to play 40+ minutes again tonight, he should still see enough court time to pay off his modest DFS price tag.

  • Chandler, Mudiay out Wednesday vs. Minnesota
    Wilson Chandler (illness) and Emmanuel Mudiay (back) have been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Kenneth Faried (ankle), Danilo Gallinari (groin) and Darrell Arthur (knee) will also be on the sidelines on Wednesday night, so we could see Juan Hernangomez earn another start with Mason Plumlee logging extended minutes with the second unit. Hernangomez shined as a starter during Monday's win over Golden State, popping off for 27 points, 10 boards and six triple over 43 minutes, so he'll be on the DFS radar if he gets another start tonight.

  • Andrew Bogut (hamstring) will play Wednesday
    Updating a previous report, Andrew Bogut (hamstring) will play Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: Bogut was originally ruled out for Wednesday's game, but after going through shootaround the Mavs decided to let him take the court for Dallas' final game prior to the break. He's been on the sidelines since Jan. 30, so he may not be working with a full complement of minutes tonight. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:28 am
  • Jahlil Okafor will be available to play Weds
    Jahlil Okafor was a full participant during shootaround and he'll be available to play Wednesday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: Okafor will come off the bench behind Nerlens Noel tonight, so he's not a great option in most leagues with 14 games on the slate. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:17 am
  • Report: Lakers are actively shopping Williams
    The Lakers are reportedly actively shopping Lou Williams, and it seems likely that he will be moved by the trade deadline.

    Advice: At 30 years old, Williams just doesn't make much sense on a rebuilding roster, and with a cap friendly contract, the Lakers should be able to get some nice return if they choose to deal the Sixth Man of the Year candidate. Sending away Sweet Lou would also open up minutes for Jordan Clarkson and D'Angelo Russell, but Williams would likely lose some value playing outside of Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:53 am
  • Jahlil Okafor expected to play on Wednesday
    Jahlil Okafor is expected to come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

    Advice: Okafor missed the 76ers initial flight to Boston, but he's now rejoined the team and is expected to be in the rotation tonight. As a reserve, Okafor tends to only see around 20 minutes a night, so he's not a great option in most settings. Nerlens Noel will get the start. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:21 am
  • Darren Colllison scores 13 in win over Lakers
    Darren Collison hit 5-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 13 points, five rebounds, eight assists and five turnovers in Tuesday's 97-96 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: He played 40 minutes, but Boogie Cousins was amped for this game and shot it about every time he touched it, limiting Collison's shots in the process. Ty Lawson was out with his adductor strain and any time he's in street clothes, Collison is a viable fantasy play. He just didn't have a big game tonight. If Lawson plays on Wednesday, fading Collison is probably the way to go. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:37 pm
  • Ivica Zubac plays 10 minutes in loss
    Ivica Zubac played just 10 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Kings, finishing scoreless with four rebounds and one turnover.

    Advice: None of the Lakers' bigs had success against DeMarcus Cousins as Boogie finished the game with 40 points. Zubac still has a short leash and coach Luke Walton will pull him on the nights that he doesn't have it going, but hopefully that changes after the All-Star break. He's still a nice stash and his outlook is promising. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:14 pm
  • Lou Williams scores 29 points w/ four treys
    Lou Williams scored 29 points on 10-of-18 shooting in Tuesday's 97-96 loss to the Kings.

    Advice: He did all of his damage in just 24 minutes and scored 19 points alone in the fourth quarter to nearly steal this one for the Lakers. Williams also hit 5-of-5 from the line and racked up five assists, one rebound, two steals, one block and five 3-pointers. Williams is on a bargain of a contract and he's expected to draw a ton of interest at the deadline, so his value could take a hit if he's moved to a contender. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:04 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor joins the 76ers in Boston
    Jahlil Okafor joined up with the 76ers in Boston in advance of Wednesday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: This doesn't mean he will play by any means, as the 76ers don't want to risk an injury while they continue to shop him. For what it's worth, coach Brett Brown said the team will welcome him back with open arms if they don't find a new home for him. He belongs on the wire unless you have the roster spot to stash him with the Feb. 23 deadline looming. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:59 pm
  • Andrew Bogut (hamstring) out Wednesday
    Andrew Bogut (strained right hamstring) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: He previously said he was going to play, while coach Rick Carlisle initially gave him a 25 percent chance of suiting up. His next chance to play will be on Feb. 24 against the Wolves, assuming the Mavs don't deal him before the Feb. 23 trade deadline. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:11 pm
  • Dubs gives second 10-day contract to Weber
    The Warriors have signed Briante Weber to a second 10-day contract.

    Advice: The timing of this deal is odd as Weber will only have the opportunity to suit up for a total of two games until this second contract expires due to the All-Star break, but this could be a sign that the Dubs will be without Shaun Livingston (personal) for Wednesday's game against the Kings. Weber saw 24 minutes on Monday night with both Livingston and Klay Thompson (heel) unavailable, but only managed to put up two points, three dimes, one steal, one block and one board. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:28 pm
  • Wilson Chandler, Mudiay questionable vs. MIN
    Wilson Chandler (illness) and Emmanuel Mudiay (back) are questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Chandler was withheld from Monday's win over the Warriors due to the illness, but we should have a better idea on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround. The same goes for Mudiay. If Chandler can get back to the court Wednesday night, he could be forced into heavy minutes with Danilo Gallinari (groin) and Kenneth Faried (ankle) out. Stay tuned.

  • Richardson (foot) to return after AS break
    Coach Erik Spoelstra said that Josh Richardson (foot) would ready to play in Miami's first game after the All-Star break.

    Advice: Richardson has not appeared in a game since January 6th but is expected to miss just one more contest. Upon his return, Richardson could eat into the playing of Dion Waiters, Tyler Johnson, Wayne Ellington and/or Rodney McGruder, depending on how Coach Spo chooses to deploy him and how effective Richardson is. He can be left on waiver wires for now, as he has had a disappointing season and does not have a clear path to consistent playing time. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:56 am

  • P.J. Tucker grabs 16 rebounds in loss
    P.J. Tucker scored 11 points and grabbed a career-high 16 rebounds in Monday's loss to the Pelicans.

    Advice: He logged 33 minutes and continues to be a workhorse for coach Earl Watson off the bench. He shot 5-of-11 from the field and added one assist, one steal and one triple, but he's cooled off lately and is averaging 6.6 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.8 steals and 0.6 triples over his last five games. He's worth owning if you need steals, but a trade is a strong possibility and that could crush his value. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:00 pm
  • Derrick Favors scores 13 points
    Derrick Favors scored 13 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks in 24 minutes vs. the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: You could argue that Favors was Utah's best player tonight, as Gordon Hayward and George Hill combined to score 13 points and Rudy Gobert was outplayed by DeAndre Jordan. Favors hit 5-of-11 shots from the field and 3-of-6 from the line, a welcome sight for his owners after he was held to six points in each of his last two games. He's been a bust and probably isn't close to 100 percent after battling a knee issue since the preseason, but he's worth holding onto. Maybe he will get it going after the break. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:14 pm
  • Blake Griffin scores 26 points in win
    Blake Griffin scored 26 points to lead the Clippers to a 88-72 win over the Jazz on Monday.

    Advice: Griffin was just named the Western Conference Player of the Week after averaging 26.0 points, 10.3 rebounds and 8.0 assists in his last three games, and he certainly looked the part tonight. He finished 11-of-18 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line, adding 10 rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal in 34 minutes. As good as Griffin has been, he has some tough games coming up agains the Hawks, Warriors and Spurs. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:41 pm
  • Tony Snell scores 16 points in win
    Tony Snell hit 5-of-11 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, two rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes of Monday's win over the Pistons.

    Advice: Snell scored 20 points back in December, but this was the second time this season he scored 16 points. He also had 13 points on Saturday and has hit at least one 3-pointer five straight games. He's played his best ball of the season over his last two games, averaging 14.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 4.0 3-pointers, but we'll need to see him do it again on Wednesday against the Nets before declaring him worthy of your fantasy roster. Just keep an eye on him on Wednesday, but keep in mind he also has a good matchup against a bad Brooklyn team that night. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:10 pm
  • Andrew Bogut (hamstring) targeting Wed return
    Andrew Bogut (strained right hamstring) said that he expects to return vs. the Pistons on Wednesday.

    Advice: "I’d like to do something before the All-Star break," Bogut said. The veteran's desire to take the court might not correspond to the training staff's wishes, however, especially since we're so close to the lengthy All-Star break. Mavs coach Rick Carlisle gave him a 25 percent chance of playing Wednesday, for what it's worth. Even if he does return, he'd assuredly play just a handful of minutes to scrape off some rust. Check for updates after Tuesday's practice. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:07 pm
  • Brook Lopez needs 18 shots to score 17 points
    Brook Lopez needed 18 shots to score 17 points in Brooklyn 112-103 loss to Memphis on Monday.

    Advice: Lopez was just 7-of-18 from the floor, including 1-of-5 from 3-point territory. Lopez did dish out a team-high five assists, but grabbed just three rebounds and failed to block a shot. Lopez had scored at least 20 points and hauled down at least five boards in each of the Nets five previous contests, so there is no need for Lopez owners to worry about this relatively disappointing performance. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:51 pm
  • Andre Drummond goes for 21 & 12 in loss
    Andre Drummond had 21 points, 12 rebounds, three steals and no blocks in Monday's 102-89 loss to the Bucks.

    Advice: Drummond hadn't scored more than 21 points in his previous two games, but has grabbed at least 12 rebounds in five straight games. The Bucks don't have a true starting center at this point so Drummond was able to take advantage. He's averaging 16.6 points, 15.8 rebounds, 2.6 steals and 1.4 blocks over his last five games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:46 pm
  • Chandler, Plumlee and Mudiay out Monday

    Advice: Yikes. In case you missed it, Danilo Gallinari (groin), Kenneth Faried (ankle) and Darrell Arthur (knee) are also out. The Nuggets have nine available players tonight, and apart from the starters, expect to see a lot of Jamal Murray and Juancho Hernangomez. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:22 pm

  • Richardson (foot) getting close, out Monday
    Erik Spoelstra said that Josh Richardson (foot) is getting "fairly close" to a return, but he'll remain on the sidelines for Monday's matchup with the Magic.

    Advice: Richardson hasn't played since Jan. 16, but he's starting to take contact and was a full participant during shootaround. His next opportunity to play will come Wednesday in Houston, but chances are the Heat will just withhold him from competing in any sort of game-time action until after the break. Richardson has had an awful season thus far, so it's tough to justify stashing him in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:56 pm

  • Briante Weber could get some extra mins Mon

  • Briante Weber will get another 10-day deal

    Advice: He's played a total of 11 minutes in three appearances, scoring six points with two boards, one assist and one steal in that span. Weber is a lot of fun to watch and is an exciting defender, but he doesn't have a great path to minutes in Golden State and belongs on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 8:21 am
  • Andrew Bogut (hamstring) out Monday
    Andrew Bogut (hamstring) will not play vs. the Celtics on Monday.

    Advice: He has a 25 percent chance of playing on Wednesday vs. the Pistons according to coach Rick Carlisle, but the Mavs are likely going to hold him out through the All-Star break. Bogut is not worth stashing and will have a limited role upon his return. Salah Mejri and Dwight Powell each get a slight boost with Bogut out. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 6:59 am
  • Nets want two first-round picks for Lopez
    The Nets' asking price for Brook Lopez is still two first-round picks according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: The Nets are able to stand firm with this price through the deadline as Lopez is under contract through the 2017-18 season. However, his value would be much higher this season as opposing teams could view him as a one-season rental if they wait until next season. He's going to be a headache to own in Brooklyn with all the maintenance days and the shut-down risk, so a trade wouldn't be a bad thing. Rotoworld.com Feb 13, 6:47 am
  • Darren Collison scores 20 points in 41 mins
    Darren Collison hit 7-of-16 shots for 20 points with eight assists, six rebounds, three steals and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes on Sunday against the Pelicans.

    Advice: Collison played big minutes once again and has now seen a two percent boost in usage over his last five games. During that stretch, he has averaged 38.4 minutes, 20 points, five assists, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.2 steals per game. Collison should continue to thrive so long as Ty Lawson (adductor) is sidelined. The Kings’ next game is on Tuesday against the Lakers, who are yielding the fifth most fantasy points per game to point guards. Rotoworld.com Feb 12, 8:48 pm
  • Pascal Siakam gets DNP-CD in loss to Pistons
    Pascal Siakam did not play vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

    Advice: Siakam was displaced by another rookie, Jakob Poeltl, and he wound up as a healthy DNP-CD in a game the Raptors lost by one point. We could see him back in the rotation on Tuesday (at Chicago) or Wednesday (vs. Charlotte), but either way he's a non-factor in fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Feb 12, 6:00 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor doesn't make team flight Sunday
    Jahlil Okafor did not make the 76ers' team flight to Charlotte for Monday's game, according to beat writer Keith Pompey.

    Advice: Okafor was held out of Saturday's game because coach Brett Brown said "there were trade rumors that were happening before the game," so this curious turn of events is sure to inspire tons of trade chatter. For now we'll consider him questionable to play on Monday, but Brown already suggested that Okafor will be held out Monday and Wednesday to avoid any risk of injury. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Feb 12, 1:11 pm
  • Wilson Chandler is probable for Monday
    Wilson Chandler (illness) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Chandler looked fine on Saturday vs. the Cavs when he played through his illness, scoring 13 points in 34 minutes. With another day of rest under his belt, he will be ready for another significant workload on Monday. He's worth deploying in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Feb 12, 10:59 am

  • Talks between 76ers and Nuggets have stalled
    Talks between the Nuggets and 76ers regarding a potential trade for Jahlil Okafor have "stalled" according to 76ers reporter Keith Pompey.

    Advice: Pompey adds that the talks could pick up again quickly, but it wouldn't make much sense for the Nuggets to take a chance on Okafor. The big man has also been linked to the Bulls, Pelicans and Blazers, so we could see a trade sooner rather than later. If you're punting free throws, feel free to stash Okafor. Rotoworld.com Feb 12, 10:15 am
  • Brown confirms why he held out Okafor
    76ers coach Brett Brown explained his decision to hold out Jahlil Okafor on Saturday vs. Miami.

    Advice: "There were trade rumors that were happening before the game," Brown said. "I was aware of those. In those situations, I felt that it was best to not complicate things and not play Jahlil. We talked about it together before the game and I explained to him that this was going to happen for this reason. That’s why I made the decision." Brown also confirmed that Okafor likely won't play Monday in Charlotte and Wednesday in Boston, as the 76ers don't want to risk an injury. According to Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype, the Bulls, Pelicans, Blazers and Nuggets are all interested in the big man. Rotoworld.com Feb 12, 6:23 am

  • Derrick Favors struggles vs. Boston
    Derrick Favors scored six points with six rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes against the Celtics on Saturday.

    Advice: He was starting to look a little better this month, but it wasn't there today. Favors isn't making an impact on the stat sheet with his lack of blocks and his usage falling off as well. He's likely going to be annoying to own and just hasn't looked right since his preseason knee problem. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 9:37 pm
  • Paul George fouls out in loss
    Paul George scored 13 points before fouling out of Saturday's loss to the Bucks.

    Advice: He had a tough time guarding Giannis Antetokounmpo, but then again, who wouldn't? George still logged 38 minutes and shot 4-of-11 from the field and 3-of-3 from the line, adding eight boards, three assists, two triples and five turnovers. Things won't get any easier for George on Monday vs. the Spurs as he should see a lot of Kawhi Leonard -- The Spurs allow the second fewest fantasy points to opposing small forwards.

  • Blake Griffin drops a 20-12-8 line in win
    Blake Griffin scored 20 points in a 107-102 win over the Hornets on Saturday, adding 12 rebounds, eight assists and one block in 35 minutes.

    Advice: After an 11-point first quarter, Blake did not score in the second and didn't score again until 3:00 was left in the third quarter. He also picked up his eighth assist with 5:37 left in the third quarter, so Griffin probably should've had his second triple-double of the week -- he had one against the Raptors on Monday. BG is cooking with gas right now and is back to his early-round ways as the focal point of the offense. He's also on the table for DFS on any given night these days. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 5:04 pm
  • K.J. McDaniels (personal) is available
    K.J. McDaniels (personal) is available on Saturday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: He's returning from a one-game absence. McDaniels hasn't been in the rotation, but there's a slight chance that he sees a handful of minutes with Eric Gordon (back) out. There's no fantasy value here. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 4:37 pm
  • Andrew Bogut (hamstring) could play Wednesday
    Andrew Bogut (hamstring) could return on Wednesday vs. Detroit according to coach Rick Carlisle.

    Advice: The timetables for Bogut have been all over the place but there's still a good chance that he will be held out until the All-Star break -- Carlise gave him a 25 percent chance of playing before the break. He's a trade candidate and the Mavs may want to show teams that he's healthy, so that might be the thinking here if he plays Wednesday. To be clear, his minutes will be limited and he's not worth the trouble. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 4:30 pm
  • McDaniels (personal) status uncertain Sat
    K.J. McDaniels (personal) was not at shootaround and it is unknown if he will be available for Saturday night's game vs. the Suns.

    Advice: There is only minimal fantasy impact related to this news, as McDaniels is averaging just 2.8 minutes per game over the last six weeks. Sam Dekker and Corey Brewer could see a few additional minutes, especially if Eric Gordon (back) is unable to suit up on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Feb 11, 9:44 am
  • Jrue Holiday goes off against Wolves
    Jrue Holiday scored 25 points with six rebounds, 12 assists, five steals, nine turnovers and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes against the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: Hey, Draymond Green wasn't the only guy to post a big stat line with plenty of steals. Holiday becomes the sixth player since 1984 to record that stat line in points, assists, boards and steals in 38 minutes or less. Holiday is one of the hottest properties in fantasy as a top-10 player in his last 12 games. He won't be this good, so he is a sell-high player. He's still likely to be an early-round guy going forward. Rotoworld.com Feb 10, 10:22 pm
  • Darren Collison scores 22, hits game-winner

    Advice: The Kings outscored the Hawks 34-23 in the fourth quarter and came all the way back from a 22-point deficit. Collison logged 44 minutes with Ty Lawson (groin) watching from the sidelines, shooting 8-of-16 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line with four assists, three rebounds, two steals and two triples with just one turnover. If Lawson misses more time, Collison should have another strong game vs. the Pelicans on Sunday -- New Orleans is allowing the third most fantasy points to opposing point guards this season.

  • Paul George scores 31 points in loss
    Paul George scored 31 points with four boards, two assists, one block and two triples in Friday's loss to the Wizards.

    Advice: He finished 12-of-23 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line in 36 minutes. PG-13 is shooting a combined 12-of-17 from the line over his last four games, but he's still third in the NBA in FT percentage, shooting 91.1 percent on the season. He's scored 21+ points in five straight games, but should see a lot of Giannis Antetokounmpo on Saturday vs. the Bucks. Rotoworld.com Feb 10, 9:54 pm
