• Questionable to play Sunday
    Avdija (heel) is questionable to play Sunday against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Avdija was a late scratch shortly before Friday's game against the Thunder, so the questionable tag is not surprising here. He's been a regular starter for the Wizards all season long, and if the can't go Sunday, then the likes of Corey Kispert and Bilal Coulibaly could be in line for a more significant role.

  • Deni Avdija (heel) questionable Sunday vs. Cavs
    Deni Avdija (left heel contusion) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Avdija was held out of Friday’s loss to the Thunder, with Landry Shamet replacing him in the starting lineup. Shamet offered little production in that role and would not be worth streaming if Avdija remains sidelined. Rotoworld Today, 2:00 pm
     
  • Aaron Nesmith (ankle) ruled out Sunday vs. Dallas
    Aaron Nesmith (right ankle sprain) will remain sidelined for Sunday’s game against the Mavericks.

    Advice: Nesmith has been ruled out for a second consecutive game, which should keep Bennedict Mathurin in the starting lineup. While his game isn’t exactly “fantasy-friendly,” Mathurin is worth streaming as long as he’s a starter. He played 35 minutes in Thursday’s win over Detroit, finishing with 15 points, six rebounds, five assists, one steal, and one 3-pointer. Rotoworld Today, 1:52 pm
     
  • Strong from deep as top scorer
    Grant recorded 25 points (9-21 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-7 FT), two rebounds, four assists and three steals over 37 minutes during Friday's 127-112 loss to the Nuggets.

    Advice: Grant led all Portland players in scoring while connecting on a team-high-tying trio of threes and swiping three steals defensively in a well-rounded outing. Grant has recorded three or more threes with at least 25 points in two of his last five games, now tallying three or more steals in three outings. Rotowire.com Today, 11:34 am
     
  • Balanced outing in starting lineup
    Murray closed Friday's 127-112 loss to the Nuggets with nine points (4-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal across 35 minutes.

    Advice: Murray got the starting nod due to Scoot Henderson (groin) out, ending two rebounds and one point shy of a double-double in a balanced performance. Murray has started in two games this season, tallying at least eight points in both of those contests. Murray set a new season high in rebounds, hauling in five or more boards on five occurrences.

  • Top scorer in season-high outing
    Porter recorded 34 points (13-21 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 34 minutes during Friday's 127-112 win over Portland.

    Advice: Porter led all players in Friday's contest in scoring and threes made while ending as one of two Nuggets players with a double-double and setting a new season high in scoring in an offensive outburst. Porter has surpassed the 30-point mark in two games this season, the other occurrence taking place Nov. 29 when he scored a previous season high of 30 points. Porter has connected on five or more threes in seven games, his first such performance since Jan. 14 against Indiana. Rotowire.com Today, 11:29 am
  • Drops 30 in win
    James produced 30 points (13-22 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, nine assists and one steal over 34 minutes during Friday's 123-118 win over the Spurs.

    Advice: James returned from a two-game absence that extended back to the final game before the All-Star break and looked fully rested. The star forward has averaged 25.5 points, 6.9 rebounds, 9.2 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.0 triples across 37.4 minutes over his last ten games. He has been a regular on the injury report due to the ankle issue he has been monitoring, which is a trend that will presumably continue going forward. Rotowire.com Today, 11:20 am
     
  • Expected to play Sunday
    Martin is listed as probable for Sunday's game versus Bucks due to a right ankle impingement.

    Advice: Martin presumably tweaked his ankle during Friday's win over the Cavaliers, but it isn't expected to keep him out of Sunday's contest. If the 22-year-old forward is able to suit up, he should continue to serve as one of Philadelphia's primary forwards off the bench. Rotowire.com Today, 10:52 am
     
  • KJ Martin (ankle) probable Sunday vs. Milwaukee
    KJ Martin (right ankle impingement) is probable for Sunday’s game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Martin is listed as probable on the initial injury report, so he should ultimately be cleared to play. While he is playing rotation minutes off the bench, the production hasn’t been good enough to justify Martin being rostered in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld Today, 10:49 am
