  • Khris Middleton (ill) questionable Tuesday
    Khris Middleton (stomach virus) missed shootaround this morning and is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: The flu bug has claimed many a victim this season. Here's hoping that Middleton is not added to the list of players that have been forced to miss a game. If Middleton is unable to suit up, Mirza Teletovic would likely see the biggest bump in playing time. Tony Snell and Jason Terry may log a few extra minutes as well. Rotoworld.com 53 minutes ago
  • Jeff Green (back) listed as out for Wednesday
    Jeff Green (back spasms) is listed as "out" for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: This would be the fourth straight game Green has missed. Mario Hezonja has seen playing time increase with Green sidelined, but has been ineffective. Hezonja is averaging 5.7 points (on just 21.4 percent shooting) and 4.3 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game over Orlando's last three contests. Rotoworld.com 59 minutes ago

  • Korver (foot) says there has been 'progress'
    Kyle Korver (foot) will miss the Cavs next three games, but he says he's seen "progress" and is hopeful he won't miss the remainder of the regular season.

    Advice: "I’m hopeful just a few days here to completely shut down and not trying to test it out and see how it feels," said Korver. "It’s just not quite where it needs to be for me to play like I’m really being me. Everyone keeps saying we’re going to play basketball for a long time. Get it right for the playoffs." Korver said the training staff is trying out new pads in his shoes to alleviate the soreness. J.R Smith will continue to start and log heavy minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:22 am
    Injured
     
  • Reggie Bullock (foot) questionable Tuesday
    Reggie Bullock (right foot sprain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Miami.

    Advice: Bullock did not play Monday in New York, after having averaged 14.8 minutes in the Pistons three previous games. Stanley Johnson and Jon Leuer may see a few extra minutes if Bullock does not play Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:01 am
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) still without timetable
    Dion Waiters (ankle) had an MRI, which came back negative, but is still without a timetable for his return.

    Advice: The Heat only have nine games left this season, including a back-to-back on Tuesday and Wednesday. Waiters is running out of time to get back in the mix. Josh Richardson will continue to start and log heavy minutes in his absence. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:59 am
  • Gerald Henderson (hip) ruled out Tuesday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: This is not surprising, as the Sixers also play on Wednesday and they have previously kept Henderson out of back-to-back sets due to his nagging hip injury. Nik Stauskas, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Justin Anderson could see a slight uptick in minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:27 am
  • Andre Iguodala finishing the season strongly
    Andre Iguodala has stepped up since Kevin Durant (knee) went down and has played his best basketball of the season this month.

    Advice: The 33-year old Iguodala credits yoga, cryotherapy and salt floating with keeping him fresh this late in the season. "He’s been fantastic," coach Steve Kerr said. "He looks incredibly athletic, bouncy and fresh." Over his last nine games, Iggy is averaging 12.4 points (on 63.1 percent shooting), 3.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals. The only real concern going forward is Kerr intermittently resting him. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:55 am
  • Jackson (knee) possibly done for the season
    Reggie Jackson (knee) is unlikely to play Tuesday vs. Miami and the Pistons may elect to shut him down for the remainder of the season.

    Advice: Jackson has been fighting through a knee tendinitis injury all season after the platelet-rich plasma injections caused him to miss the first 21 games of the year. "We’ve been thinking about this for a long time. It’s hard to put a percentage, but he’s been playing at probably about 80 percent and as we get into this stretch of games in March where we’re playing a lot, the fatigue is making it worse," coach Stan Van Gundy said. Ish Smith will continue to start and play heavy minutes, with Beno Udrih backing him up. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:03 am
  • Kent Bazemore (knee) 'trending upward'
    Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play Tuesday but is planning to return for Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Tuesday's game vs. Phoenix will be the fifth straight contest Bazemore has missed after injuring his knee during the Hawks loss to the Blazers on March 18. Bazemore said the rehab has been successful and he is "starting to feel good" and can now do "just about everything." The red-hot Tim Hardaway Jr. will draw another start and play heavy minutes on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:36 am
  • Danny Green returned to action on Monday March 27. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:46 am
  • Jordan Crawford scores 14 points in loss
    Jordan Crawford scored 14 points and hit two triples vs. the Jazz on Monday.

    Advice: The Pelicans were in comeback mode down the stretch, so Crawford played a season-high 30 minutes. He shot just 5-of-16 from the field with one rebound, two assists and one block, but it's obvious that he has the green light from coach Alvin Gentry. If the Pelicans start shutting down some players in the near future, Crawford could be a sneaky pickup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:59 pm
  • Buddy Hield scores 14 points in Monday's win
    Buddy Hield ended with 14 points, four rebounds, two 3-pointers and just one turnover in 34 minutes Monday against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: The rookie has posted double-digit point totals in six straight, and 13 of his 14 outings in the month of March. He was the cornerstone of the return in the deal with New Orleans involving DeMarcus Cousins. The rookie has been money from the perimeter, hitting at least one 3-pointer in each of his 17 games with the Kings, and 23 in a row dating back to Feb. 4 when he was with the Pelicans. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Rodney Hood scores 20 points in win
    Rodney Hood snapped out of his funk with 20 points on 7-of-16 shooting vs. the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: Hood scored a combined 23 points in his previous three games, but stepped up with Gordon Hayward (quad) and Alec Burks (personal) out -- Hood gets an 8.2 usage rate bump with Hayward off the court. He added six rebounds with three assists and four triples, but he's had a lot of trouble staying healthy this season and his FG percentage has been all over the place. If Hayward sits on Wednesday, Hood could be poised for another solid night. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Joe Johnson scores 14 w/ six assists
    Joe Johnson racked up 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds, six assists and two triples in 31 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: Gordon Hayward (quad) sat this one out, so there's not much to see here. Unless Hayward misses more time, Johnson is just a low-end option in deeper leagues. Joe Ingles, who scored 19 points with five triples, is the better add if Hayward sits on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Garrett Temple doesn't do much with time
    Garrett Temple played 34 minutes in Monday's 91-90 win against the Grizzlies, but he finished with just six points, four rebounds, three assists, a steal and a blocked shot.

    Advice: Temple was leaned upon heavily for his veteran presence in a game head coach Dave Joerger wanted badly against his former team, but Temple misfired on eight of his 10 field goal attempts. When Arron Afflalo (personal) or Tyreke Evans (rest) return it will mean a lesser role - and fantasy appeal - for Temple. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Darren Collison sharp from the floor
    Collison scored a team-high 23 points with seven assists and four rebounds in Monday's 91-90 win against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Collison helped give head coach Dave Joerger a much-wanted victory against his former team. The veteran coach has leaned upon Collison heavily down the stretch, as he has been a constant in the ever-changing starting lineup since the team dealt DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:17 pm
  • Joe Ingles scores 19 points, hits five treys
    Joe Ingles started in place of Gordon Hayward (quad) in Monday's 108-100 win over the Pelicans and scored 19 points in 35 minutes.

    Advice: The Jazz were running a lot of offense through him down the stretch and he delivered, scoring 10 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter -- he even hit a step-back jumper over Anthony Davis in the final two minutes. He finished 7-of-13 from the field and hit all five of his 3-pointers, adding four rebounds, four assists and one steal. He won't be this good, but give him a look if we learn that Hayward will miss more time. Ingles averaged 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.0 triples in 20 previous starts this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • J.J. Barea hands out eight assists
    J.J. Barea scored 10 points and dished out eight assists in Monday's loss to the Thunder.

    Advice: Seth Curry was out with a minor shoulder injury, so Barea logged 29 minutes and finished 3-of-9 from the field with one rebound, one steal and two triples. It isn't clear if Curry will miss more time, but if he does, Barea will have some streaming appeal for owners in need of assists since the Mavs have three more games this week. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:18 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard posts 25-6-6 in rout of Cavs
    Kawhi Leonard finished with 25 points, six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a blocked shot in 30 minutes on Monday against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: About the only thing fantasy owners can complain about is the fact Leonard missed all seven of his 3-pointer attempts. He could have blown through the lane for an easy deuce most of the evening, but elected to go outside rather frequently. He still was 11-of-21 overall from the floor, so fantasy owners cannot complain too loudly. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 pm
  • Danny Green records four blocked shots
    Danny Green misfired on six of his seven field goal attempts in Monday's win against the Cavaliers, but he ended up with four blocked shots and two steals.

    Advice: Two of Green's swats came at the expense of none other than LeBron James, as that is the kind of night it was for the Cavaliers. Green at least dropped one in the bucket from behind the arc, his specialty, although he has struggled from the perimeter in March. Green has made just five of his past 23 triple attempts over the past seven games, so he isn't really helping any fantasy owners at the moment. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm
  • DeRozan drops 36 points in blowout win
    DeMar DeRozan dropped 36 points in a blowout win over the Magic on Monday.

    Advice: He cooled down on Saturday with 18 points vs. Dallas after a pair of 40-point games, but the Magic had no answer for him tonight. DeRozan shot 13-of-21 from the field and 9-of-14 from the line with three assists, two rebounds and one triple in 36 minutes. Toronto has won six games in a row and are just 0.5 games behind the Wizards for the No. 3 seed in the East, so expect DeRozan to keep eating the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:03 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (rest) ruled out Monday
    Tyreke Evans is resting on Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: No surprise here -- Evans isn't allowed to play in back-to-back sets with the Kings in tank mode. With Arron Afflalo out for personal reasons, Buddy Hield and Garrett Temple are starting on the wings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:41 pm
  • P.J. Tucker racks up three steals, one block
    P.J. Tucker started in place of DeMarre Carroll (back) on Monday vs. the Magic and finished with seven points, five rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and one triple in 33 minutes.

    Advice: Tucker has seen a spike in minutes recently because of Carroll's injury and Serge Ibaka's suspension last week, so keep rolling him out there if you rebounds, defensive stats and the occasional 3-pointer -- he has seven steals over his last two games. He finished 3-of-5 from the field in 33 minutes, but there are probably some better options on your wire unless you're specifically targeting steals. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:39 pm
  • Garrett Temple starting Monday vs. Memphis
    Garrett Temple is in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Temple should do some heavy lifting with Arron Afflalo (personal) and Tyreke Evans (rest) in street clothes. While his role might be fairly significant for this game, he isn't someone to rely upon down the stretch. The Kings are likely to lean heavily upon their youth to get a jump on the 2017-18 season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:35 pm
  • Reggie Jackson could be shut down by DET?
    Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy said Monday he is unsure whether Reggie Jackson (knee) will be shut down for the season, but he is out Tuesday against the Heat.

    Advice: With Jackson on the shelf it is Ish Smith who benefits the most. He and Beno Udrih will continue to fill the void until such point as Jackson is plugged back into the lineup. Jackson's fantasy owners hope that isn't until the 2017-18 season, but that possibility is looming. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:16 pm
  • Alec Burks out Monday due to personal reasons
    Alec Burks is not with the team for Monday's game against the Pelicans due to personal reasons.

    Advice: Burks just doesn't play enough minutes to make much of a difference for most fantasy owners, especially at this juncture of the season. Dante Exum and Joe Ingles will likely see a couple of extra minutes as a result of Burks being inactive. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:10 pm
    GTD
     
  • Joe Ingles starting for Gordon Hayward (quad)
    Joe Ingles will start in place of Gordon Hayward (quad) on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: The Jazz will start George Hill, Rodney Hood, Ingles, Boris Diaw and Rudy Gobert. Ingles is worth a look if you need some stream some assists, steals and triples, as he's averaging 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.0 triples in 20 starts this season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:00 pm
  • Reggie Jackson (rest) out Monday vs. NYK
    Reggie Jackson will be rested for Monday's matchup with the Knicks.

    Advice: With Jackson unavailable, Ish Smith should be able to see his minutes in the 30s, so he could be someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or low-budget DFS option with a favorable, up-tempo matchup against the Knicks. Beno Udrih should also see his minutes in the teens sans Jackson, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:59 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) out at least 3 more games
    Kyle Korver (foot) will miss at least the next three games for Cleveland.

    Advice: Korver is going to miss Monday's game in San Antonio, Thursday's game in Chicago and Friday's game against Philadelphia, and with the Cavs saying "at least three games," it seems there's a good chance he could miss Sunday's matchup with Indiana as well. Iman Shumpert (knee) will be joining Korver on the sidelines tonight, so J.R. Smith should get all the minutes he can handle. At this point in the fantasy season, Korver isn't worth hanging onto in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:35 pm
    Injured
     
  • Danny Green (rest) will play Monday vs. CLE
    Danny Green (rest) will return to the court for Monday's matchup with the Cavs.

    Advice: Green sat out Saturday's game as a precaution, but he'll get back out there tonight, which will likely shift Jonathon Simmons back to the second unit. Gregg Popovich confirmed that he won't be resting any of his main guys for Monday's game, so if you own LaMarcus Aldridge, Kawhi Leonard or Pau Gasol, feel free to get those guys active. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:24 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) will be re-evaluated Thurs
    Kyle Korver (foot) said he will be re-evaluated prior to Thursday night's game vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Korver will not play Monday vs. San Antonio, so J.R. Smith should be looking at minutes in the 30s tonight. Korver has now undergone two MRIs on his sore left foot, both of which have come back clean, but he acknowledged that his foot "never really felt all the way right," when he returned on March 19 from a seven-game absence. With the Cavs focused on the Finals, Korver may not play again during the regular-season, so he's a cut candidate in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:36 am
    Injured
     
  • Thabo Sefolosha (groin) ruled out Tuesday
    Thabo Sefolosha (groin) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: He will miss his second game in a row and he could be looking at more time on the shelf -- he was using the StairMaster at Monday's practice. With Kent Bazemore (knee) out at least one more game, Taurean Prince is worth a long look after the rookie scored a career-high 17 points with six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:53 am
  • Kent Bazemore (knee) targeting Wednesday?
    Kent Bazemore (knee) could return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: This means he will miss at least one more game vs. the Suns on Tuesday. Thabo Sefolosha (groin) is also out on Tuesday, meaning Taurean Prince will be a solid streaming option vs. the Suns -- Prince scored a career-high 17 points in his first NBA start against the Nets on Sunday with six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to be a must-start player until further notice. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:49 am
  • Reggie Bullock (foot) out Monday
    Reggie Bullock (foot) will not play on Monday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: He's been diagnosed with a sprained right foot and is currently in a walking boot. Bullock was averaging 13.3 minutes over his last four games, so Stanley Johnson will likely pick up a few extra minutes in his absence. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:16 am
  • Kyle Korver (foot) ruled out for Monday
    Kyle Korver (foot) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Not good. He's dealing with left foot soreness again, the same issue that sidelined him for seven games earlier this month. Fantasy owners can't mess around during the playoffs, and considering coach Tyronn Lue doesn't know when the sharpshooter will return, it makes sense to evaluate other options. With Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) considered questionable, J.R. Smith should get a lot of burn. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:12 am
    Injured
     
  • Corey Brewer starts for Brandon Ingram (knee)
    Corey Brewer started Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (right knee), finishing with three points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Brewer might have played more if the game were close, but the veteran got a long rest with the score out of hand in the second half. He's not a fantasy option, even if Ingram misses more games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:38 pm
  • Andre Iguodala posts all-around gem vs. MEM
    Andre Iguodala had a hyper-efficient game on Sunday, making 7-of-8 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with two 3-pointers for 20 points, while adding seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and zero turnovers.

    Advice: Iguodala logged 32 minutes tonight and he's been critical to the Warriors' success since Kevin Durant went down. For what it's worth, Steve Kerr didn't explicitly rule out resting Iguodala over the next week, which includes a back-to-back set vs. the Spurs and Rockets. He has been awesome lately, and owners should simply monitor his status prior to each of Golden State's games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:00 pm
  • Jordan Crawford scores 13 off bench
    Jordan Crawford posted 13 points with seven assists, five rebounds and a steal in 24 minutes off the bench in Sunday's game at Denver.

    Advice: Crawford has been outstanding for the second unit in New Orleans, posting 10 or more points in nine of his 10 outings with the team. He is averaging 14.3 points and 2.5 rebounds over his past four games to give fantasy owners in deeper leagues some solid production. He is also a cheap source of points for those playing DFS down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:40 pm
  • Gerald Henderson (hip) logs 18 minutes
    Gerald Henderson (hip) played 18 minutes during Sunday's 107-94 loss in Indiana, going 2-of-6 from the field for five points, two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Henderson's hip has been a nagging issue for most of the season, and it's somewhat surprising that Philly hasn't simply shut him down. He's little more than a veteran mentor at this point, setting an example for his neophyte teammates, and the vast majority of fantasy owners can do better on the wire. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:15 pm
  • Corey Brewer starting for Brandon Ingram
    Corey Brewer will start Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (patellar tendinitis).

    Advice: David Nwaba should also get a significant boost with Ingram on the sidelines, and we might even see Nick Young or Metta World Peace get a few minutes. This is a situation to avoid in the vast majority of fantasy scenarios. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:05 pm
  • Buddy Hield catches fire late in comeback win
    Buddy Hield caught fire down the stretch of Sunday's 98-97 comeback win in L.A., finishing with 15 points, three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two assists and one steal.

    Advice: Hield finished 5-of-12 from the field but he made them when it mattered, going 0-of-5 from deep before hitting three straight during a furious fourth-quarter comeback. He scored at least 20 points in his previous two games and continues to look like a long-term piece for the rebuilding Kings. He's in a perfect situation for fantasy purposes. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:04 pm
  • Darren Collison hits 8-of-11 FGs, scores 19
    Darren Collison started Sunday's game and had 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting with four assists, one board and one steal in 28 minutes.

    Advice: DC was rested on Friday and the random DNPs make it hard to trust him in critical situations for fantasy purposes. He got a boost tonight with Ty Lawson (stiff knee) ruled out at the last minute, but it doesn't sound like Lawson will miss too much time with the injury. It's worth noting that DC was also riding the bench while Langston Galloway (six points, three assists in 25 minutes) played PG during the Kings' huge run to steal this win in L.A. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:01 pm
  • Tyreke Evans logs 21 minutes as starting SF
    Tyreke Evans returned as a starter on Sunday with eight points, four rebounds, two 3-pointers and one assist in 21 minutes vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Evans was coming off a day of planned rest, but he recently said that he's "getting into a rhythm right now." He's worked to develop an outside shot, in order to reduce the wear-and-tear of constantly driving to the rim, but Sacramento is still going to limit him to under 30 minutes per game down the stretch. Throw in the random DNPs, and he's simply not an appealing fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 4:00 pm
  • Khris Middleton gets 14 points on 17 shots
    Khris Middleton needed 17 shots to score 14 points on Sunday, connecting on six attempts while adding six rebounds, two assists, four steals and two 3-pointers without a turnover in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Middleton had an atrocious night vs. Atlanta on Friday, going 1-of-13 from the field with three turnovers, and he's going through a prolonged slump at a brutal time for fantasy owners. He's too good to struggle much longer, though, and should benefit from a cupcake matchup with the Kings' defense on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:19 pm
  • Danny Green expected to return Monday vs. CLE
    Danny Green is expected to return on Monday after sitting out Saturday's game as a precaution.

    Advice: It doesn't sound like the Spurs will rest any of their veterans for Monday's game vs. the Cavaliers, so owners can tentatively deploy them as usual. Dejounte Murray (groin) is the only player currently ruled out. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:55 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (rest) expected to start Sunday
    Tyreke Evans (rest) is expected to be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Clippers, according to Kings' Insider James Ham.

    Advice: Evans will likely remain on a minutes limit today, and with 10 other games on the slate, fantasy GMs should have more attractive options to put on their active roster. With Evans active, guys like Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore will take a slight hit. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:33 pm
  • Darren Collison (rest) will start on Sunday
    Darren Collison (rest) will return to the starting five for Sunday's matchup with the Clippers.

    Advice: This could mean that Ty Lawson will be returning to the second unit, and his value figures to take a hit with Collison active. In his two games against the Clippers this season, Collison has compiled averages of 18.0 points, 2.0 triples, 3.5 boards, 2.0 assists and just 1.0 turnover per contest on 58.3 percent shooting, so feel free to get him active. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:24 pm
  • 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 Sunday, 10:34 am

  • Thabo Sefolosha (groin) ruled out Sunday
    Thabo Sefolosha (groin) will not play on Sunday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: He joins Kent Bazemore (knee) and Paul Millsap (knee) on the injury report. This isn't the same groin that sidelined him for nine straight games earlier this season, but it's not clear how severe the issue is. It's possible the Hawks are giving him the night off against the worst team in the league as well. Taurean Prince will get his first NBA start and is worth a look if you want to stream some rebounds, triples and defensive stats. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:06 am
  • Gerald Henderson is available Sunday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) is available to play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He sat out of the morning shootaround and is likely battling some soreness in his hip. Henderson will likely pick up some DNPs down the stretch, so he belongs on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:34 am
  • P.J. Tucker scores nine points
    P.J. Tucker scored nine points with nine rebounds, three assists, four steals and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

    Advice: With DeMarre Carroll (back) out, coach Dwane Casey pulled a page out of Suns coach Earl Watson's playbook with heavy run of Tucker against strong offensive players. The Raptors are getting some serious value out of Tucker from their second-round pick at the deadline and he could make a big impact in the postseason, but most fantasy owners should be looking elsewhere unless he's being added as a steals specialist. There are a lot of hot pickups out there. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:34 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard scores 29 points vs. Knicks
    Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points during a 106-98 win over the Knicks on Saturday, adding five rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

    Advice: The minutes continue to be there and it looks like for the second year in a row, Kawhi will play more minutes per game after the break than he did before it. Leonard also hinted that he won't be seeing a decrease in minutes based on the tough upcoming schedule. "It's going to get us mentally prepared," Leonard said. This tough stretch starts against the Cavs on Monday as the Spurs start a four-game week. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:56 pm
  • Kyle Korver doesn't get much vs. Wizards
    Kyle Korver scored 10 points with two rebounds and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

    Advice: His playing time didn't change much even with Iman Shumpert (knee) not playing in this game. Korver isn't getting enough usage or minutes to be counted on while the Cavs are close to 100 percent. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:13 pm
    Injured
     
  • Rodney Hood has another rough day
    Rodney Hood made 4-of-13 from the field for nine points with four rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He has not shown up since returning from his knee soreness, averaging 7.7 points, 3.0 boards, 0.7 steals and 1.0 treys on just 33.3 percent from the field in those three. Joe Ingles has outplayed Hood for the majority of the season and his knee issue may be the reason. Regardless, Hood isn't a fantasy option for most owners in this crucial part of the season.

  • Joe Johnson scores 14 points
    Joe Johnson scored 14 points with three rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 26 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He was really the only guy to step up on the perimeter for the Jazz. Johnson has been fairly inconsistent lately and this was his first game above 42 percent from the field since Mar. 13. He will likely be coming off the bench against the Pelicans on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:12 pm
  • Joe Ingles hurts right elbow
    Joe Ingles (right elbow) scored one point with three rebounds, five assists and one steal in 27 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: He looked to suffer a non-contact injury to his non-shooting elbow and left the game after the injury. Ingles didn't get treatment or medical attention after he checked out, and he did return shortly afterwards. For now, Ingles sounds like he's going to be OK. If Gordon Hayward (knee) does need to miss time, Ingles would be asked to step up. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:04 pm
  • Kent Bazemore out again for Sunday
    Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play against the Nets on Sunday.

    Advice: He was expected to miss 7-10 days, so he was not expected to play since that prognosis back on Mar. 19. With Bazemore out at least one more, Tim Hardaway Jr. should see all the run he can handle while Thabo Sefolosha, Mike Dunleavy and Taurean Prince pick up the scraps on the wing. Bazemore should be dropped in most leagues. Prince has the most value of that bunch and gets a great matchup on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:06 pm
  • Danny Green (rest) will not play vs. Knicks
    Danny Green (rest) will not play against the Knicks on Saturday.

    Advice: It'll be his first game off since November and it comes on a non-back-to-back set. Green has played 28.5 minutes per game in March, which is by far the most he's played in a full month this season. With Green out tonight, Jonathon Simmons figures to get some extra run and could get some added value in garbage time tonight. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:44 am
  • Andre Iguodala scores nine points
    Andre Iguodala scored nine points with one rebound, three assists and no turnovers in 27 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

    Advice: He did go to the locker room in the last few minutes, but the game was over. Iguodala did not give much indication he was going to miss time, so he should be fine for Sunday. Although, the Warriors will likely rest him again at some point. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:10 am
  • Buddy Hield drops best line of career
    Buddy Hield turned in career-highs 22 points, eight boards and seven dimes against the Warriors on Friday, adding two steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: He's about as hot as he could be, matching his previous career-high 21 points on Wednesday. The Kings are resting their point guards now to allow Hield to have the ball more, and he does have at least 32 minutes in each of his last four. He could disappoint his next time out, but Hield looks like an add in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:58 pm
  • Middleton shoots 1-of-13, Bucks win anyways
    Khris Middleton shot 1-of-13 from the field and only scored six points, but the Bucks won their third straight game in a 100-97 win over the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: With the win, the Bucks are now tied with the Hawks for the No. 5 seed in the East. Middleton played 32 minutes and added three rebounds, three assists, three steals and three turnovers, but this will likely be an outlier in what has been an incredible month -- he was averaging 18.0 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.9 triples in his previous 13 games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:43 pm
  • Buddy Hield is starting
    Buddy Hield (quad) is starting against the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: He was on the injury report for a quad contusion, but was never expected to miss time. Hield is coming off a strong 21-point effort, so he's starting to creep onto the radar in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:15 pm
  • Reggie Jackson scores 11 points
    Reggie Jackson came off the bench again on Friday vs. the Magic, making 5-of-14 from the field for 11 points with four rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

    Advice: Coach Stan Van Gundy said before the game that he still thinks Jackson is the answer down the line. "It’s a decision for now," Van Gundy said about the lineup change. "It doesn’t reflect any long-term thoughts on him." It's basically been a lost season for Jackson and the trade rumors will likely be there. Most fantasy owners should be able to do better. He does have four games next week, though. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:24 pm
  • Buddy Hield (right quad) is probable Friday
    Buddy Hield is probable for Friday's game vs. the Warriors with a right quad contusion.

    Advice: The Kings must be confident about Hield playing, as they just announced that Tyreke Evans, Darren Collison and Anthony Tolliver are resting. Hield is coming off a 21-point game on Wednesday and his owners can pencil him into lineups for now. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:48 pm
  • Tyreke Evans resting on Friday
    Tyreke Evans will rest on Friday vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: This decision is coming from the Kings, as Evans just said that he feels "better than ever with my knee." With the Kings tanking, he's going to pick up too many DNPs to help most fantasy owners. Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore should be busy tonight. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:43 pm
  • Collison, Tyreke and Tolliver resting vs. GSW
    Darren Collison, Tyreke Evans and Anthony Tolliver are all out for planned rest against the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: This is pretty much status quo for the Kings as they get a look at their youth. Ty Lawson should get big minutes in the first unit while the Kings piece it together in the second unit. Collison isn't worth owning now that he's basically resting every other game. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:42 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

  • Andre Iguodala not on the injury report
    Andre Iguodala (hip) is not on the injury report for Friday against the Kings.

    Advice: After missing the last game on Tuesday, Iguodala could be back for this home game. The Warriors are not on a back-to-bac set, but they really won't need Iggy as 18-point favorites tonight. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:47 pm
  • 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

  • Tyreke Evans says he 'feels better than ever'
    Tyreke Evans says he feels "better than ever with my knee."

    Advice: Evans is averaging only 22 minutes per contest and has sat out six of the Kings last 11 games. However, he believes he can handle a more significant workload. "I’m still maintaining," said Evans. "I feel better than ever with my knee. No pain, just playing free." Evans will be an unrestricted free agent this summer and is eager to prove he still has plenty left in the tank. "A lot of teams know I had tough injuries so they want to see how I’m moving, how I’m playing every night." Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:55 am
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) is 'progressing'
    Dion Waiters (ankle) is reportedly "progressing in the right direction," but there is still no timetable for his return.

    Advice: Waiters has missed three straight games due to the ankle issue. "He’s feeling better," coach Erik Spoelstra said on Thursday. "Some of the swelling is starting to come down. But there still is no timetable." Josh Richardson is the primary benefactor here. J-Rich continues to start and play heavy minutes in Waiters absence. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:30 am
  • Danny Green vanishes in 22 minutes Thursday
    Danny Green disappeared vs. Memphis on Thursday with four points, two assists, one turnover and no other stats to his credit in 22 minutes.

    Advice: We're more than 85 percent through with the regular season, so anyone owning Green should be inured to occasional duds. He's not worth owning in most points leagues, but continues to eke out value in most roto formats. Owners should at least be spared DNP-CDs given his modest playing time and the Spurs' continued pursuit of the No. 1 seed. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:47 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 40 in win at Miami
    DeMar DeRozan scored 40 points during a 101-84 win in Miami on Thursday, adding six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

    Advice: He just scored 42 points on Tuesday to make this the first time he's scored 40-plus points in consecutive games in his career. The Raptors have had tremendous success when DeMar drops 40, going 8-0 in those instances. DeRozan did tweak his ankle earlier in the game, but obviously it wasn't affecting him too much. The Raptors are playing solid ball again with a four-game winning streak to put them just 0.5 games behind the third-seeded Wizards. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:20 pm
  • P.J. Tucker scores nine as starter
    P.J. Tucker started for Serge Ibaka on Thursday with nine points, seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers against the Heat.

    Advice: The Raptors have gone with Tucker at power forward quite a bit since they signed him, but most of the time it's when he's next to Ibaka. Tucker isn't exactly a stats guy for fantasy unless he's racking up the steals, but he has to be pumped about getting some playoff action. "I know the intensity goes up but my intensity never goes down. So for me, I'm excited about it," Tucker said about the upcoming playoff run. Tucker still isn't going to be worth owning in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:15 pm
  • J.J. Barea ejected for flagrant 2 foul
    J.J. Barea was ejected for a flagrant 2 foul on Blake Griffin in the third quarter on Thursday.

    Advice: This was probably one of the worst flagrant 2 fouls of the season. Barea only have Griffin a shove and may have made some contact to his face. He won't be suspended for this one and will be ready for Saturday against the Raptors. Barea finished with five points, three assists and one 3-pointer. He isn't worth owning in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:14 pm
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) in a walking boot
    Dion Waiters (ankle) was in a walking boot on Thursday.

    Advice: The good news is Waiters was not on crutches. The Heat have not revealed a timetable on Waiters, but he's likely out for multiple games. With him out, Josh Richardson should benefit the most while Wayne Ellington should have more shots going his way. J-Rich is worth a long look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:40 pm
  • P.J. Tucker likely to start for Serge Ibaka
    P.J. Tucker is likely to start for Serge Ibaka against the Heat on Thursday.

    Advice: Ibaka is serving his one-game suspension for throwing a punch earlier this week. The Raptors can get away with going smaller against the Heat with the Heat not having many options at power forward. Besides Tucker, there should be more minutes going to Norman Powell and Pat Patterson may also play slightly more. Without Serge, Jonas Valanciunas should also play more against Hassan Whiteside, assuming he can go.Daily Slant: With Ibaka out of action, Tucker figures to see more than 30 minutes of court time and sets up as one of the best punt plays at the SF spot on Thursday. He's not typically a strong per-minute producer, but his 0.79 FPPM with Lowry/Ibaka off the floor this month would be enough for him to hit value. Patrick Patterson should also see increased run off the bench, but his ceiling is fairly limited. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:11 pm
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) still has no timetable
    Dion Waiters (ankle) still has no timetable to return.

    Advice: The good news is that the swelling is down and coach Erik Spoelstra said he's "feeling better." With Waiters out, Josh Richardson has emerged as the clear pickup in his absence. Richardson is averaging 12.0 points, 2.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 0.5 steals and 1.5 triples in his last two games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:56 am
  • Rodney Hood struggles in 21 minutes Wednesday
    Rodney Hood had another forgettable game on Wednesday, logging 21 minutes to finish with three points on 1-of-4 shooting, three rebounds, one assist and one turnover.

    Advice: Hood was in foul trouble during his return from a knee injury on Monday, but tonight he was the victim of his own inefficiency -- Joe Ingles played 25 minutes, Joe Johnson played 23 minutes, and even Alec Burks logged 19 scoreless minutes. With his uninspiring play and recurring knee soreness, Hood is tough to trust if you're battling for the fantasy playoffs. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:03 pm
  • Joe Johnson shifts to bench on Wednesday
    Joe Johnson shifted to the bench on Wednesday, where he chipped in 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with one 3-pointer, four rebounds, two assists and one block.

    Advice: Derrick Favors (bone bruise) is out indefinitely and the Jazz had been playing well with Johnson in his spot, but they opted to play the matchups with Boris Diaw starting tonight. Johnson logged 23 minutes on Wednesday and should hover in the mid-20s whether he's starting or coming off the bench. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:00 pm
  • Garrett Temple comes off the bench
    Garrett Temple scored 12 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's tough to count on any Kings vet right now with how the front office finally is getting to play the youth. Temple can remain on the wire in just about all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:03 pm
  • Tyreke Evans scores 18 points
    Tyreke Evans scored 18 points with three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He did not play in the previous two games and will continue to be rested going forward. Evans will be a free agent this summer and it'll be interesting to see who pays up for him with all of his injury history. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:00 pm
  • Buddy Hield scores 21 points vs. Bucks
    Buddy Hield scored 21 points with four rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's his best scoring game as a King. Hield has seen his shot total rise with at least 12 in each of his last three games as coach Dave Joerger gives his rookie more responsibility. Hield also has a steal in three straight and only 1.0 turnovers in that span, as well. His fantasy value isn't all that great because he doesn't do too much outside of scoring, but feel free to give him a look if you need some points and treys. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:53 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) scores nine points on Wed
    Kyle Korver (sore left foot) returned to action on Wednesday with nine points on 3-of-9 shooting, including a 3-of-8 mark from downtown.

    Advice: "A lot of my shots are turning over this left shoulder," Korver said, explaining the cause of his recent injury. "That’s kind of the foot I’m planting on more. I think that’s kind of where I get the wear and tear I’ve had over the years." Korver logged 19 minutes in his return but he should be in the mid- to high-20s before long. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:54 pm
    Injured
     
  • Gerald Henderson scores four points
    Gerald Henderson scored four points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 16 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: The 76ers didn't play Henderson on Monday and actually put him in the first unit to start the second half. With the 76ers likely wanting to get a longer look at their younger wings, Henderson won't be playing too much down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:40 pm
  • Reggie Jackson benched, plays 20 minutes
    Reggie Jackson played 20 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, going 3-of-10 from the field for six points, four assists, one rebound and three turnovers.

    Advice: Jackson didn't play in the fourth quarter vs. the Nets on Tuesday, and he's been routinely out-performed by Ish Smith, so this was a fairly obvious move for the struggling Pistons. He was barely inside the top-200 for roto value over the past two weeks, and the bench role isn't likely to help. To add injury to insult, Jax also appeared to tweak his left leg in the third quarter. We're leaving him off the injury report, but he's a cut candidate in most situations. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:36 pm
  • Garrett Temple to bench on Wednesday
    Garrett Temple will come off the bench on Wednesday.

    Advice: Arron Afflalo is getting the start tonight, and this effectively erases Temple's faint fantasy appeal. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:31 pm
  • Joe Johnson comes off bench w/ Diaw starting
    Joe Johnson will come off the bench vs. New York on Wednesday.

    Advice: Boris Diaw will start and draw the matchup vs. Kristaps Porzingis, but the minute allotment shouldn't change too much here. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:03 pm
  • Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play vs. Milwaukee
    Tyreke Evans (ankle) will play vs. the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: Evans went scoreless in 14 minutes his last time out, and even if his ankle has fully recovered he's a dubious fantasy option at this stage of the season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:13 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) will play against Nuggets
    Kyle Korver (foot) will play against the Nuggets on Wednesday night.

    Advice: It will be his first action since Mar. 6. With Korver back, it'll be interesting to see how coach Ty Lue divides the minutes on the wing. Korver will have a lower upside, but he should be a solid specialist for treys going forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:36 pm
    Injured
     
  • Reggie Jackson to come off Pistons bench
    Reggie Jackson will come off the Pistons' bench on Wednesday, with Ish Smith moving into the starting lineup.

    Advice: Stan Van Gundy teased a lineup change after Tuesday's loss to Brooklyn, and this isn't shocking after Jackson was benched for the entire fourth quarter of that game. Smith has been playing well lately and should see an uptick in his minutes as a starter, whereas this is another hit to Jackson's already shaky value. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:23 pm
  • Dion Waiters out again for Thursday
    Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play on Thursday against the Raptors.

    Advice: He's coming along just fine and the team may not give him an MRI this week. As of Wednesday, he doesn't have an MRI scheduled, so maybe Waiters is more day-to-day. Josh Richardson is a solid add in standard leagues and dropped 14 points on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:15 pm
  • Kyle Korver (foot) questionable Wednesday
    Coach Tyronn Lue said he was unsure whether Kyle Korver (sore left foot) will be able to play Wednesday night vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Korver has not played since March 6th due to the foot injury. He did state that he felt "a lot better" on Tuesday, so Korver is clearly headed in the right direction. We may be looking at a game-time decision Wednesday night. The issue for Korver owners is that even once he is fully healthy and active, Korver will have to divvy up minutes with J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert. Thus, it will be very difficult for him to match the numbers he was putting up his first few weeks in Cleveland. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:58 am
    Injured
     
  • 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.

  • Khris Middleton helps Bucks beat Blazers
    Khris Middleton racked up 26 points, three rebounds, three assists, three steals, a block and three 3-pointers on 11-of-22 shooting in 33 minutes of Tuesday's big 93-90 win over the Blazers.

    Advice: Wow. He was worth the wait if you stashed him long before he came back and there was some risk involved, as no one was really sure how he'd look or fit in with the new-look Bucks. He's been fantastic, averaging 18.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.6 3-pointers on 50 percent shooting over his last five games. With the Bucks fighting for their playoff life and seeding, Middleton should continue to roll the rest of the way. He's also played in all 12 of the Bucks' March games, scoring in double figures in all of them. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:15 pm
  • DeMar DeRozan scores 42 points in OT win
    DeMar DeRozan scored 42 points in a 122-120 overtime win over the Bulls on Tuesday.

    Advice: DeRozan helped the Raptors claw their way back from a 15-point fourth quarter deficit. He shot 17-of-38 from the field, adding seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and one triple in 43 minutes. He had two 40-point games in his career entering this season, but now he has five this campaign which is a franchise record. DeRozan should eat the rest of the way with Kyle Lowry's (wrist) timetable still up in the air. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:11 pm
  • Reggie Jackson plays 20 minutes in loss
    Reggie Jackson played just 20 minutes and hit 3-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points and two assists in Tuesday's 98-86 loss to the Nets.

    Advice: Here we go again. Ish Smith came off the bench, played 28 minutes, hit 8-of-15 shots and finished with 16 points, seven rebounds, four assists, three steals and a block off the bench. Jackson lulled us to sleep with two solid performances of 14 and 20 points over his previous two games, but Smith came on and scored 12 of his 16 in the fourth quarter, although the Pistons still lost. As has been the case all year, Jackson is still the man and the starter, and Smith will have the occasional big night when Stan Van Gundy turns to him. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:16 pm
  • Dion Waiters spotted without walking boot
    Dion Waiters (ankle) was spotted without a walking boot on Tuesday.

    Advice: Waiters is still on crutches, and his ankle is still swollen, but he was at least able to put some weight on his injured left ankle while making his way through the Miami locker room on Tuesday. Waiters remains without an official timetable to return, and him gingerly making his way through a locker room on crutches suggests that he's still not very close, so those without an IR-spot will need to strongly consider moving on from Waiters. Josh Richardson will continue to start in his place. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:51 pm
  • Kyle Korver (left foot) feeling much better
    Kyle Korver (sore left foot) said on Tuesday that he was feeling "a lot better," and "well rested."

    Advice: Korver added that his foot is feeling stronger, and with him getting in a full practice on Tuesday, it's looking like there's a chance we could see him back in action on Wednesday night vs. the Nuggets. Korver was playing well prior to going down, but that was with J.R. Smith on the sidelines, so it could be tough for him to replicate that production fighting for minutes with Smith and Iman Shumpert. We should get another update following shootaround, but this is a wait-and-see situation in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:42 pm
    Injured
     
  • Andre Iguodala (hip) ruled out Tuesday
    Andre Iguodala (left hip strain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Mavs.

    Advice: This is the first we've heard of a hip injury for Iggy. We should get an update on its severity soon. Iguodala has missed a few games to rest this season but has been remarkably healthy all year long. With Kevin Durant (knee) already sidelined, this leaves the Warriors a bit thin at small forward. Patrick McCaw and Matt Barnes will both see an uptick in minutes, but it would be difficult to place too much trust in either player. Daily Slant: With Durant and Iguodala off the floor this season, Klay Thompson leads the Warriors in usage at 32.2%, and produces at a 1.17 FPPM clip compared to a 1.11 FPPM mark for back-court mate Stephen Curry. Ian Clark carries a considerably higher usage rate (25.6%) than either Matt Barnes (17.0%) or Patrick McCaw (15.2%) in that split, but targeting any of those three players is best left for GPP play. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:51 am
  • Foul trouble limits Rodney Hood
    Rodney Hood (knee) was in the starting five Monday in Indiana, and he finished with 11 points, two rebounds and a pair of 3-pointers over 16 minutes.

    Advice: Hood was limited to 16 minutes due to foul trouble, not his ailing knee. That meant Joe Ingles, who Hood supplanted in the lineup, saw more action. It might be a slow go for Hood to knock off the rust and get back into the swing of things, but he is a decent play when he is active and healthy. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:21 pm
  • Joe Ingles adjusts to bench role again
    Joe Ingles came off the bench in Monday's game at Indiana, scoring four points with seven rebounds and five assists over 27 minutes.

    Advice: Ingles wasn't terribly active on the offensive end, but he was busy on the glass and he even recorded a blocked shot. He still logged starter-type minutes as the first option off the bench, although that was partly due to Rodney Hood being in foul trouble. Ingles remains a decent play in deeper fantasy formats even in a reserve role, although obviously his appeal is much higher when Hood is on the shelf. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:12 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha scores 11 points
    Thabo Sefolosha scored 11 points with eight rebounds, four assists, one block and three triples in 28 minutes vs. the Hornets on Monday.

    Advice: That's a quite a game for Sefolosha, but lines like those have been few and far between. He finished 4-of-7 from the field and should get a small bump with both Kent Bazemore (knee) and Paul Millsap (knee) on the shelf, but he's more a low-end streaming option if you're targeting steals. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:46 pm
  • Joe Johnson dismal from floor
    Joe Johnson misfired on six of his seven field goal attempts in Monday's 107-100 loss at Indiana, posting just two points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal over 31 minutes.

    Advice: Johnson missed all four of his 3-pointer attempts and never did seem to get comfortable. The veteran has now missed 28 of his past 41 field goal attempts for a dismal 31.7 percent from the floor over the past four outings. Until he gets on track he isn't helping in any fantasy format. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:43 pm
  • Rodney Hood starting, Joe Ingles to the bench
    Rodney Hood (knee) will return to the starting lineup following a two-game stint on the sidelines for Monday's matchup with Indiana, sending Joe Ingles back to the bench.

    Advice: Hood has been a frustrating guy to own this season, but at the very least, he could be someone to consider deploying as a deep league streamer or DFS punt play. George Hill, Gordon Hayward, Joe Johnson and Rudy Gobert will join Hood in the starting five for tonight's game. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:31 pm
  • Joe Ingles returns to the bench
    Joe Ingles will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Rodney Hood (knee) is returning to action, but Derrick Favors (knee) is still out. The Jazz are playing more small ball with Joe Johnson at the four, so Ingles should still see a healthy amount of minutes. His upside isn't the greatest when Hood is active, though. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:29 pm
  • Rodney Hood (knee) expected to play Monday
    Rodney Hood (knee) is expected to play Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Hood has spent the past two games on the sidelines with a sore right knee, but it sounds like he'll be back in action tonight, which will likely result in Joe Ingles heading back to the bench and there won't be as many minutes available for Joe Johnson. Hood has been woefully inconsistent this season, but if you've got someone to cut in a deep league, he could be someone to take a flier on. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:58 pm
  • Gerald Henderson ruled out Monday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) will not play on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Henderson will no longer play in both games of back-to-back sets, but they only have one more back-to-back set remaining on the schedule. Hendo has been battling through hip soreness, so he could be a shut-down candidate down the stretch. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Robert Covington will log heavy minutes on the wings, but Justin Anderson could see a nice bump as well. Henderson belongs on the wire in most formats.

  • Dion Waiters (ankle) ruled out for Tuesday
    Dion Waiters (left ankle) will not play Tuesday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Waiters is still on crutches, and while he's hopeful that he'll be able to return before the end of the regular season, he's most certainly going to be looking at a multi-game absence here. Josh Richardson drew the start in his place on Sunday and finished with 10 points, one triple, two dimes, one steal, one block, one board and one turnover in 33 minutes, so he could be worth a look in deep leagues. Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson should also be more active on offense. Unfortunately, Waiters is now a cut candidate in all leagues without an IR-spot. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:26 pm
  • Rodney Hood (knee) questionable for Monday
    Rodney Hood (knee) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He can't shake this knee issue and even if does manage to play tonight, he will likely get some DNPs down the stretch. He's too frustrating to trust in the fantasy playoffs in standard leagues. Joe Ingles will be a solid streaming option if Hood is ruled out. Rotoworld.com Mar 20, 9:04 am
  • Corey Brewer grabs nine rebounds Sunday
    Corey Brewer scored nine points with nine rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss against Cleveland.

    Advice: Brewer had his best game in months, but it is still unlikely to move the needle for most fantasy owners. He is nothing more than a depth play in deeper fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:23 pm
  • Garrett Temple hot from the perimeter
    Garrett Temple scored 15 points while hitting all three of his attempts from behind the arc in Sunday's 118-102 loss in San Antonio.

    Advice: Temple matched his best shooting night since returning from a long-term hamstring injury, and this was just the second time he played in a back-to-back situation since coming back March 5. The last time he struggled in both ends of the back-to-back, but he obviously excelled this time around. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 7:17 pm
  • Darren Collison struggles in Sunday's loss
    Darren Collison misfired on seven of his eight field-goal attempts in Sunday's 118-102 loss against the Spurs, finishing with just two points, four assists and two rebounds in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Collison has turned in back-to-back disappointing efforts, hitting just five of his 21 field goal attempts. He had the chance to shine and be the focal point of the offense with Arron Afflalo (personal), Tyreke Evans (ankle) and Ben McLemore (rest) sidelined, but his shot was not falling and he struggled mightily against San Antonio's defense. He'll have two full days to rest before the team's next outing against Milwaukee on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 7:07 pm
  • Buddy Hield (finger) posts 18/5/5 in defeat
    Buddy Hield knocked down 8-of-14 shots with a pair of 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing with 18 points, five rebounds, five assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 32 minutes.

    Advice: This was one of Hield's best performances of the season, with the assists tying his career-high, but it wasn't enough to get a road win vs. the Spurs. He injured his right index finger during the game, ripping half of his nail, but didn't leave after getting it bandaged up. We'll let you know if it's serious enough to jeopardize his status for Tuesday's game. For now we're assuming he's fine and leaving him off the injury report. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 7:00 pm
  • Jordan Crawford scores 22 pts on 9-of-13 FGs
    Jordan Crawford played 21 minutes off the bench on Sunday to finish with 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting, including a 4-of-7 mark from downtown.

    Advice: Crawford has been a great fit for the Pelicans' second unit, providing an offensive punch with 13.0 points, 2.5 triples and 3.2 assists per game. Tonight's 22 points were the most he's scored in a Pelicans' jersey, and he's worth a glance if you need a cheap points-and-3s specialist -- he added just two boards tonight, without any assists, steals or blocks. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 5:57 pm
  • Dion Waiters (left ankle) is on crutches
    Dion Waiters (left ankle) is on crutches and is hoping he can return before the end of the regular season.

    Advice: Waiters said this ankle sprain is worse than his last one and he did break this ankle back in high school. The Heat are going to give him treatment every day and have not provided a timetable on his return. While Waiters is out, Josh Richardson gets a big chance and is starting on Sunday. If you need a guard and the wire dried up, J-Rich could be your guy with his nice upside. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 2:27 pm
  • Tyreke Evans, Afflalo, McLemore out Sunday
    Tyreke Evans (ankle), Arron Afflalo (personal) and Ben McLemore (personal) will all sit out vs. the Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: Malachi Richardson (hamstring) is also out tonight, so once again it will be all hands on deck for the Kings. Darren Collison, Ty Lawson and Buddy Hield should do the heavy lifting, with some help from Langston Galloway and Garrett Temple. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 2:27 pm
  • Kent Bazemore has right knee bone bruise
    Kent Bazemore has a right knee bone bruise and will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days.

    Advice: He suffered the injury on Saturday night and did not return. Bazemore had an MRI to confirm the diagnosis and the Hawks will now have to move on to start this week without 40 percent of their starting lineup -- Paul Millsap (knee) is out for two games. With those two out, Ersan Ilyasova will be firing away from three, Tim Hardaway Jr. will get big minutes, Taurean Prince should play more than 20 minutes, the Hawks will likely use Malcolm Delaney at the two and maybe even DeAndre Bembry gets in the mix again. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 1:34 pm
  • Hendo scores nine points vs. Boston
    Gerald Henderson scored nine points with three rebounds and one assist against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: He did play some clutch minutes in this game and being the team's best free throw shooter this season helps his case. Still, the 76ers won't be playing him big minutes to get a longer look at their young guys. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 1:13 pm
  • J.J. Barea scores 20 points vs. Nets
    J.J. Barea scored 20 points with one rebound, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Nets on Sunday.

    Advice: He carried the Mavs late with nine consecutive points in the fourth quarter in a 2:32 span. The Mavs are still likely to limit him, and this was his first game over 20 minutes since his January injury. Barea is playing well and even had a 13-dime game, but we'd like to see him play over 20 minutes again before suggesting he's an add. Give him a look in deep leagues. The Mavs only have three games this upcoming week. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 12:20 pm
  • Kyle Korver remains out
    Kyle Korver (foot) remains out and said there's "still something in" his left foot.

    Advice: "It's getting better but it hasn't come along like I'd hoped," Korver said. "I should've stopped playing on it a week and a half earlier. Now that I'm out, we might as well let it come all the way back, but it just hasn't yet." Considering the Cavs have been careful with their guys, we're likely not going to see Korver for a few games at least. J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert will play a little more. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:45 am
    Injured
     
  • Gerald Henderson is probable for Sunday
    Gerald Henderson is probable for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He's still dealing with some left hip soreness, the same hip he had surgery on in 2015. With Justin Anderson (illness) out Sunday, Hendo could pick up a few extra minutes off the bench. Don't be surprised if he's rested on Monday vs. the Magic, though. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 8:19 am
  • Andre Iguodala scores 15 off bench
    Andre Iguodala scored 15 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

    Advice: He may be one of the sneakiest players in fantasy right now with fourth-round value since the break. Iguodala does a little bit of everything, he's making his free throws at a reasonable rate and his 1.5 steals are top notch for a waiver add. Iggy should hold value for at least a couple weeks, but beware of some possible rest. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 10:45 pm
  • Khris Middleton scores 11 points
    Khris Middleton scored 11 points with two rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

    Advice: The minutes were solid and he likely would've been in the mid-30s had the Bucks been in this game. Middleton is heavily involved in the offense and is playing on the ball a lot more than expected after he said he was focusing more on shooting late in his rehab. We're not expecting him to rest until the Bucks have something clinched, so keep rolling Middleton out there. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 10:33 pm
  • Joe Johnson scores eight points in start
    Joe Johnson scored eight points with six rebounds, two assists and one block in 33 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: The Jazz have missed Derrick Favors (knee) more than they thought and have lost three of their last five. Johnson has not exactly performed well in those games, averaging 10.2 points, 4.0 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 treys. He's not really a fantasy option and would also lose value once Rodney Hood (knee) comes back. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 8:30 pm
  • Joe Ingles scores 10 points in start
    Joe Ingles scored 10 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: The Jazz may continue to hold Rodney Hood (knee) out to play it safe for next month, which should allow Ingles to get minutes in the 30s. He was tied for the league lead in 3-point percentage, but going 1-of-5 tonight dropped him to second behind Otto Porter. Ingles is a decent player to ride in the short term, but his value will likely drop once the Jazz are whole again. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 8:27 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha has another bad game
    Thabo Sefolosha did not score with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 19 minutes against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: Low scoring is nothing new for Thabo, but his minutes continue to drop. Taurean Prince is coming on strong and is clearly earning more playing time. Sefolosha isn't worth owning right now unless you're really searching for steals. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 5:25 pm
  • Kent Bazemore suffers right knee contusion
    Kent Bazemore suffered a right knee contusion in the fourth quarter on Saturday.

    Advice: He drove to the basket and his had some contact on the drive, but he was walking around fine. He did not return because the game was basically over after his injury. Bazemore did not go to the locker room right away and had the trainer look at him on the bench. Bazemore finished with 12 points, two assists and one block in 32 minutes. This injury didn't look serious. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 5:23 pm
  • Buddy Hield scores 11 points vs. OKC
    Buddy HIeld scored 11 points with one rebound, one assist and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: Even a homecoming game in Oklahoma couldn't get him going. Hield is coming of a seven-points, zero-dime game on Wednesday and he continues to do very little outside of scoring. There just isn't enough incentive to own the rookie in most leagues right now. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 2:44 pm
  • Garrett Temple plays 28 minutes
    Garrett Temple scored seven points with three rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: He took some friendly fire from Kosta Koufos to the groin, but he was OK after a trip to the bench. While Temple did start, his time in the first unit likely won't be lasting very long. Even after a decent line today, he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues with the Kings going so young these days. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 2:38 pm
  • Darren Collison scores 10 points
    Darren Collison scored 10 points with three rebounds in 27 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: It was somewhat disappointing for Collison, who has a decent chance to rest on Sunday. Most fantasy owners may want to jump ship and the Kings do only have three games for the upcoming week, so one day off would make an undesirable player to use. Malachi Richardson returning next week won't help him either. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 2:32 pm
  • Garrett Temple back in the starting lineup
    Garrett Temple will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: With Arron Afflalo out, there should be a decent amount of minutes going to Temple tonight. He's still not going to be a fantasy option with the Kings going young. Malachi Richardson (hamstring) returning would also take minutes from him Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 11:47 am
  • Collison, Temple, Buddy, WCS & Kosta starting
    Darren Collison, Garrett Temple, Buddy Hield, Willie Cauley-Stein and Kosta Koufos will start against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: Collison is back after a day off. With plenty of resting players behind him, he should be getting some heavy minutes against Russell Westbrook. The bad news is more rest is likely coming, so he probably won't be very fun to own when he's not starting. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 11:40 am
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play on Sunday
    Dion Waiters (ankle) will not play against the Blazers on Sunday.

    Advice: He does not have a timetable to return right now and coach Erik Spoelstra had some comments about his shooting guard on Saturday. "He was in the locker room doing treatment pretty much all night, last night, and then early this morning," Spoelstra said. The Heat won't put a grade on it, but it's fair to guess he's going to miss multiple games. With him out, Josh Richardson makes sense as a pickup in standard leagues while Wayne Ellington could be a scoring and threes specialist. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 11:37 am
  • Evans, Afflalo, McLemore ruled out Saturday
    Tyreke Evans (ankle), Arron Afflalo (personal) and Ben McLemore (personal) have all been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Evans has been battling a nagging ankle injury. He played just 14 scoreless minutes on Wednesday. There will obviously be plenty of minutes available for the Kings guards that are active on Saturday. Darren Collison sat out Wednesday's game to rest but will be back on Saturday. Buddy Hield should see plenty of playing time. Ty Lawson, Garrett Temple and Langston Galloway will also likely log additional minutes. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 9:33 am
  • Rodney Hood (knee) will not play Saturday
    Rodney Hood (knee) will not play Saturday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Hood was removed from Wednesday's game due to knee soreness and was unable to suit up on Thursday. Joe Ingles started in place of Hood on Thursday and logged 36 minutes, finishing with 12 points, four rebounds and four assists. Joe Johnson could also see a few extra minutes with Hood sidelined. If you still own Hood, there are probably more attractive, less frustrating options on your league's waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 9:02 am
  • Dion Waiters (ankle) without a timeline
    Coach Erik Spoelstra said Dion Waiters (ankle) is currently without a timeline to return.

    Advice: Waiters sprained his left ankle late in the second quarter and had to be carried off the court. Coach Spo said the sprain is "similar to the way he did last time. There's no timeline on it. There's no way to really tell until we get to the next day." The previous sprain Spo is referring to sidelined Waiters for three games over six days. We should have an update this weekend, but the safe assumption is that Waiters will likely miss at least a couple of games. Josh Richardson is expected to soak up most of Waiters minutes. Wayne Ellington should also see a bump in playing time. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 6:18 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
    Injured
     
  • Khris Middleton scores season-high 30 points
    Khris Middleton scored a season-high 30 points in Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: He missed his only two 3-point attempts, but finished 11-of-18 from the field and 8-of-9 from the line with two rebounds and one steal in 33 minutes. Middleton has played 30+ minutes in nine out of his last 10 games and hasn't rested since Feb. 27, so double check to make sure he's active for Saturday's game vs. the Warriors in Golden State. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 10:24 pm
  • Jordan Crawford scores seven points
    Jordan Crawford scored seven points with five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: The Pelicans didn't need his scoring in this game because Solomon Hill had the game of his life. Crawford is still giving the team good minutes, but his hot start with the two different 19-point games last week seems to be his high point. He's not the strongest hold.
