  • Ty Lawson returned to action on Thursday February 23. Today, 12:18 am
  • Tyreke Evans scores 15 points in win
    Tyreke Evans played 26 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday with 15 points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer off the bench.

    Advice: He played the three for the Kings in this game, but he handled the ball in both halfcourt and in transition. Interestingly, Evans took DeMarcus Cousins' old locker and vice versa in New Orleans. The Kings also going to Evans for 26 minutes right out of the gate is an encouraging sign for his playing time going forward. He is injury prone, but Evans is worth owning in standard leagues. Yesterday, 10:59 pm
  • Steph Curry scores 20 in 50-point 3rd quarter
    Stephen Curry scored 20 points during the Warriors remarkable 50-point third quarter on Thursday night, finishing with 35 points, seven rebounds, five assists, four steals and six 3-pointers on 10-of-16 shooting.

    Advice: The NBA All-Star Game, which featured a 192-182 final score, resulted in just one 50-point quarter, while the other seven came in between 39-49 points. And considering there was no defense played in that game, what the Warriors did against the defensive-minded Clippers tonight was amazing. The last time an NBA team scored 50 points in a quarter was 2014 and the last time the Warriors did it was in 1989. Curry was a beast tonight and broke a close game open by going on a crazy run over the last half of the third quarter. The Warriors hit 17-of-23 shots in the third, which was one more field goal than they hit in the entire first half. Yesterday, 10:56 pm
  • Ty Lawson scores eight in start
    Ty Lawson scored eight points in a start at shooting guard against the Nuggets on Thursday with four rebounds, six assists, two steals and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

    Advice: While he did play well, Lawson probably won't be sticking in the first unit for too long. Buddy Hield and Tyreke Evans will be vying for Lawson's minutes, and Darren Collison is locked in. Lawson is more of a 14-team point guard for now. Yesterday, 10:55 pm
  • Kevin Durant fills stat sheet in win over LAC
    Kevin Durant fought through a left hand injury and finished with 25 points, 15 rebounds, seven assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes of Thursday's 123-113 win over the Clippers.

    Advice: While he might have done even more had he not gone to the locker room for X-rays, owners aren't about to complain about this one, especially with just one turnover. Durant appears to have avoided a serious injury, as it's just being called a hand contusion, so look for him to keep rolling over the final several weeks of the season. Yesterday, 10:49 pm
  • Darren Collison scores 15 with 10 dimes
    Darren Collison made 5-of-13 from the field for 15 points with four rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    Advice: Not much analysis needed on Collison here. His fantasy owners can thank their lucky stars he wasn't traded because he should be putting up big numbers as the top offensive weapon for the Kings going forward. He should flirt with top-50 value the rest of the way. Yesterday, 10:40 pm
  • Brice Johnson finally debuts for Clippers
    Brice Johnson (back) made his season debut on Thursday and played three scoreless minutes against the Warriors.

    Advice: He's been laid up with a bad back all season so it was nice to see him on the court tonight. However, there's very little chance he'll be worth owning in any fantasy league this season, unless the Clippers decide to rest all their starters at some point in the final 10 days of the regular season. Yesterday, 10:39 pm
  • Kosta Koufos scores eight in start
    Kosta Koufos scored eight points with six rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    Advice: That's about what to expect from Koufos going forward. His upside just isn't attractive enough to own in standard leagues, but he could be a low-end deep guy for desperate owners. Yesterday, 10:35 pm
  • Raymond Felton scores 13 off Clippers bench
    Raymond Felton came off the bench again on Thursday and had 13 points, three rebounds, five assists, three steals and a 3-pointer in 24 minutes in a 123-113 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Felton and Austin Rivers filled in admirably while Chris Paul was out, but it sounds like Paul may play on Friday night against the Spurs. It looks like it's safe to drop Felton, while Rivers could cling to a little value over the next week or so as CP3 gets back in the flow for the Clippers. But once Paul is back, both guards are going to see a big decrease in playing time. Yesterday, 10:33 pm
  • Jameer Nelson scores 12 points in loss
    Jameer Nelson scored 12 points with four rebounds, six assists, five steal and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes during his start against the Kings on Thursday.

    Advice: He kept the Nuggets in this game and looks like he has the starting job locked up. Emmanuel Mudiay did not play in this game and Jamal Murray had a game to forget. Nelson not being traded is huge for his value, so he should be owned in standard leagues. He should get heavy run as long as the Nuggets are going for the No. 8 spot. Yesterday, 10:24 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari returns on Thursday
    Danilo Gallinari returned to action on Thursday with 15 points six rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in 30 minutes against the Kings.

    Advice: It's his first game back since a scary groin strain on Feb. 1, and there are just no half measures on Gallinari and the Nuggets. Even coming off an injury, he didn't really see limited run, which is part of the reason he's hurt so often. Still, Gallinari not getting traded is good for his fantasy value, so expect him to flirt with mid-round value as long as he's healthy. Yesterday, 10:22 pm
  • Blake Griffin still sluggish after break
    Blake Griffin, who scored just 17 points on 6-of-15 shooting in his last game before the All-Star break, hit just 3-of-13 shots for 12 points, five rebounds and eight assists in Thursday's 123-113 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Maybe it was the Warriors' defense, but Griffin looked a little sluggish tonight, and he's struggled a bit in his last two games. Look for him to take out his frustrations on the hapless Nets on Saturday night. Yesterday, 10:21 pm
  • Wilson Chandler scores 18 points
    Wilson Chandler scored 18 points with 10 rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

    Advice: Despite some complaints about his role, Chandler stayed put at the deadline. He said he wasn't happy with his inconsistent usage and playing with different guys. After he was logging more minutes at the three while Danilo Gallinari (groin) was out, Chandler only played three minutes at small forward in this game. He should still be worth owning in standard leagues no matter where he gets his minutes. Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Darrell Arthur gets a DNP-CD
    Darrell Arthur was a DNP-CD on Thursday.

    Advice: With Kenneth Faried back and the Nuggets not trading anyone away today, Arthur is not expected to get much playing time. He likely won't be a DNP-CD every game, but the Nuggets will continue to manage Arthur and his aging knees. Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 23 points in win
    Kyrie Irving scored 23 points against the Knicks on Thursday with three rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

    Advice: The Cavs are playing well again, which means the likelihood of Irving getting rested will be on the rise. Additionally, Deron Williams could be joining the Cavs, assuming a team doesn't claim his big contract. Irving will still be elite when he plays, but his owners will have to keep their eyes peeled for a possible rest day. Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Kyle Korver remains red hot in win
    Kyle Korver scored 20 points with two rebounds, three assists and six 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

    Advice: He's one of the hottest shooters in the NBA, which is hardly a surprise. In fact, Korver has a ridiculous 84.9 true shooting percentage this month, averaging 15.9 points, 3.4 boards, 1.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 4.0 treys. He's too hot to leave on the wire right now. Yesterday, 9:19 pm
  • Kevin Durant returns after hand scare
    Kevin Durant had X-rays taken on his left hand after the first quarter of Thursday's game and then quickly returned to action in the second quarter.

    Advice: X-rays were negative and it's being called a contusion, so it looks like Durant's owners, as well as the Warriors, avoided a disaster tonight. He's fine. Yesterday, 8:27 pm
  • Brice Johnson active.
    Brice Johnson (back) is active for Thursday.

    Advice: He is not likely to be active, but this is obviously a positive. Johnson had a rough start in Summer League and was actually pulled to get coached up in his first game, but he got it going later in the event. A Vertical report said the Clippers didn't want to trade Johnson, so they still value the first-round pick. Yesterday, 7:45 pm
  • Collison, Ty, B Mac, Tolliver & Kosta start
    Darren Collison, Ty Lawson, Ben McLemore, Anthony Tolliver and Kosta Koufos will start against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    Advice: No Buddy Hield and no Willie Cauley-Stein. This likely won't last for long. Yesterday, 7:41 pm
  • Darrell Arthur available on Thursday
    Darrell Arthur (illness) is available to play on Thursday against the Kings.

    Advice: His role should be pretty limited off the bench, especially with the Nuggets finally getting healthy again. However, Kenneth Faried (available) is a little iffy with his sprained ankle, so Arthur might see a few more minutes than normal tonight if Faried struggles with his ankle. Yesterday, 6:09 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari (groin) will play vs. Kings
    Danilo Gallinari (groin) will play against the Kings on Thursday.

    Advice: He has been out since his Feb. 1 and was back at practice on Wednesday. The Nuggets were expected to traded away either Gallo or Wilson Chandler, but were unable to do so. Gallinari should have some minute restrictions in the early going. His return will hurt guys like Will Barton and Juancho Hernangomez. Chandler should also play more at the four. Yesterday, 12:34 pm
  • Ty Lawson (groin) will play on Thursday
    Ty Lawson (groin) is available to play on Thursday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: He was able to practice on Tuesday after missing the last four games before the All-Star break. Lawson isn't a great fantasy asset right now, but that could change if the Kings move Darren Collison at the deadline. Yesterday, 10:22 am
  • Kings want a first for Darren Collison
    The Kings are "holding firm" on their asking price of a first-round pick for Darren Collison, according to's David Aldridge.

    Advice: On Wednesday, general manager Vlade Divac told Collison he won't be traded. The sense around the league is Collison will be traded, but we'll see who softens their stance. If Collison is gone, the Kings will likely sign a 10-day guy to back up Ty Lawson. Yesterday, 9:06 am
  • Raptors still after Wilson Chandler?
    The Raptors have pursued Wilson Chandler in a trade, according to Marc Stein of

    Advice: The Raptors want a bigger forward or a shooter, so Chandler clearly fits the bill. They're going for it this year and really just need one more guy in their rotation to replace Terrence Ross. Chandler would take a big hit in fantasy with a trade while Norman Powell also takes a hit if the Raptors add a forward. Plus, don't forget Masai Ujiri was a former GM in Denver. Yesterday, 7:57 am
  • Tyreke Evans (knee) will stay on minute-limit
    Tyreke Evans (knee) said that he will remain on a minute-limit with the Kings, but he's not sure if the restriction will continue until the end of the season.

    Advice: Evans said he'd play "about 27" minutes per game, after being traded to the Kings as part of the DeMarcus Cousins deal. Health has been the biggest impediment to his value throughout his NBA career, and during his first season in New Orleans he carved out late-round value in just 28.1 minutes per game. He's a decent stash in the hopes that he stays healthy and the Kings opt to play him substantial minutes in a contract year. Wednesday, 5:50 pm
  • Thunder aren't after Wilson Chandler anymore?
    Oklahoma City no longer has Wilson Chandler on its radar, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

    Advice: That leaves the Rockets and Clippers as the favorites to land the combo forward. The Nuggets are likely going to trade at least one of their veteran forwards, Chandler or Danilo Gallinari, so there could also be another mystery team after Chandler. A trade would likely hurt his fantasy value. Wednesday, 3:12 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (illness) questionable Thur
    Darrell Arthur (illness) is questionable to play against the Kings on Thursday.

    Advice: This isn't due to his arthritic knee issues, which will cause him to be managed throughout the season. If Arthur can't go, there could be a few extra minutes going to Juancho Hernangomez, especially if the Nuggets make trades at the deadline. Wednesday, 12:28 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari is questionable for Thursday
    Danilo Gallinari (groin) is questionable to play against the Kings on Thursday.

    Advice: He did go through some practice on Tuesday, so he's coming along from what looked like a scary injury earlier this month. Of course, there is a chance that Gallinari is on another team before Thursday's game. The sense around reporters is that the Nuggets will be dealing either Gallo or Wilson Chandler. A trade would likely hurt Gallo's fantasy value. Wednesday, 12:25 pm
  • Jameer Nelson passes Mudiay on depth chart
    Coach Mike Malone said Jameer Nelson will be the starting point guard going forward.

    Advice: With the Nuggets going for the eighth seed, this move makes a lot of sense. Since taking over as the starter last month due to some injuries to Mudiay, Nelson has gone 7-7, averaging 11.0 points, 3.5 boards, 6.3 assists, 1.6 turnovers, 1.7 treys and 0.5 steals in 30.7 minutes per game. That has given him low-end value in standard leagues and is also a fair expectation going forward. Plus, he's been hot lately, so he should be owned in most formats. Wednesday, 12:01 pm
  • Darren Collison told he will stay
    Darren Collison said general manager Vlade Divac told him he doesn't plan to trade him at the deadline.

    Advice: To be clear, this doesn't exactly mean much with the Kings going into a full sell mode following the Boogie Cousins deal. Several reports say he is as good as gone, which would obviously cripple his fantasy value. If he can stay with Sacramento, Collison could flirt with early-round value. For what it's worth, Collison has a 26.7 usage rate when he's not on the court with Boogie compared to 18.2 with him. Wednesday, 11:30 am
  • Ty Lawson (groin) goes through practice
    Ty Lawson (groin) was able to practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's 100 percent and will be ready for Thursday's game vs. the Nuggets after a four-game absence. Darren Collison could be moved prior to the deadline, so be ready to give Lawson a look if the Kings find a trade partner. Lawson is just a stash for now. Tuesday, 6:37 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) returns to practice
    Darrell Arthur (knee) returned to practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's had a week off and should be fine for Thursday's game vs. the Kings. He's appeared in just 29 of the Nuggets 55 games this season, so they will continue to limit his minutes going forward. Arthur is not a fantasy option. Tuesday, 5:53 pm
  • Wilson Chandler (illness) returns to practice
    Wilson Chandler (illness) returned to practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: He missed the two games prior to the All-Star break, but he's had several days off to rest up and should be ready to play on Thursday vs. the Kings. However, Chandler's name has been incredibly popular with the Feb. 23 deadline looming, so it's not a lock that he will be a Nugget much longer. The Rockets, Clippers and Thunder are all rumored destinations for the versatile forward. Tuesday, 5:50 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari, Faried go through practice
    Danilo Gallinari (groin) and Kenneth Faried (ankle) went through practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: The Nuggets are "hopeful" that they will be both be available for Thursday's game vs. the Kings. Gallo has missed the past eight games for the Nuggets, but his fantasy owners should be more concerned about whether or not he's traded at the deadline -- the Celtics, Rockets and Clippers are all rumored destinations. A move would more than likely hurt his value, but at least he's healthy again. Tuesday, 5:41 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. Monday, 7:31 pm
  • 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. Monday, 8:56 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. Monday, 6:40 am
  • Tyreke Evans headed back to Sacramento
    Tyreke Evans will be traded to the Kings in the DeMarcus Cousins deal.

    Advice: The former Rookie of the Year is headed back to his old team. Evans is going to be an unrestricted free agent in July, so the Kings are clearly opening up as much cap room as they can for the upcoming offseason. As for the rest of this season, Evans may not have as much of a restriction and the Kings are now completely gutted on offense, so he's headed for a big opportunity. Of course, the injury risk won't go away. Sunday, 8:55 pm
  • 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. Sunday, 6:43 am
  • Celtics keeping an eye on Gallo?
    The Celtics will "keep an eye on" Danilo Gallinari (groin) as a possible trade target, according to Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald.

    Advice: The Celtics are reportedly making their picks available for the right deal, including the potential No. 1 lottery spot with Brooklyn's pick. That pick likely isn't going to be in play for Gallinari, but young talent or future firsts could be in play on this deal. Gallo would take a big hit in big hit in Boston while Will Barton and Juancho Hernangomez could benefit. Saturday, 5:13 pm
  • KD has no comment on taking less money
    Kevin Durant wouldn't comment about possibly taking less money this summer to help fit others into the salary cap.

    Advice: "We'll figure that out when the time comes," Durant said. He has a max $27.7 million cap number on his player option for next year, so that's a big chunk of the raised cap for the 2017-18 season. Durant is having his most efficient season as a pro and looks to be enjoying his time in the Bay Area so far. Saturday, 3:33 pm
  • Kerr to consider playing Westbrook w/ Durant
    Coach Steve Kerr told reporters that he would "definitely consider" playing Russell Westbrook alongside Kevin Durant in Sunday's All-Star Game.

    Advice: The potential pairing of Westbrook and Durant will be one of the more interesting subplots in the 2017 All-Star contest. Any possible interaction between the two former teammates and friends will surely generate plenty of headlines. Steph Curry believes that Draymond Green will help ease the tensions and break the ice in the Western Conference locker room. "[Green] is going to come in and just probably crack jokes and do something real loud and make it a locker room scene," said Curry. Friday, 6:46 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. Wednesday, 10:31 pm
  • Kevin Durant, Warriors cruise to win vs. SAC
    Kevin Durant scored 21 points with seven rebounds, seven assists, four blocks, one steal and one 3-pointer in just 32 minutes on Wednesday.

    Advice: Golden State lost to Denver on Monday, but their streak of 131 games without a consecutive loss was kept alive in a lopsided win vs. the Kings tonight. Klay Thompson blew up for 35 points, Steph Curry added 13 points, nine assists and six rebounds, and the team didn't even need Draymond Green after his early ejection. It's good to be the team with the league's best record, most efficient offense, and third-most efficient defense. Wednesday, 10:25 pm
  • Kosta Koufos plays just 11 minutes Wednesday
    Kosta Koufos started vs. the Warriors on Wednesday but had only one point, two rebounds, one block and four personal fouls in 11 minutes.

    Advice: Koufos was similarly quiet in his last game vs. the Warriors -- it's not a good matchup for him, and tonight was a perfect storm with both foul trouble and a blowout conspiring against him. Willie Cauley-Stein is gaining traction and there's no reason to own Koufos in typical leagues. Wednesday, 10:19 pm
  • Jameer Nelson goes for 16/11/7 Wednesday
    Denver followed up Monday's upset win vs. the Warriors with a loss to the Wolves, despite getting 16 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds from starting PG Jameer Nelson.

    Advice: Nelson made 7-of-15 shots with one 3-pointer and he's been very good in the absence of Emmanuel Mudiay (back). Mudiay has extra time to heal during the break, but even if he's healthy Nelson has enough juice to be worth a look in standard leagues. Wednesday, 8:47 pm
  • Kyle Korver gets 22 points w/ six 3-pointers
    Kyle Korver scored 22 points with six 3-pointers on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 25 minutes vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: In the process, Korver became the 7th player in NBA history with at least 2,000 career 3-pointers. The veteran hasn't missed a beat in Cleveland, averaging 2.6 treys on 49.5 percent from deep, and he said the biggest adjustment is getting so wide open without needing to run himself ragged. He's a nice specialist but doesn't typically offer this many extra stats. Wednesday, 7:34 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. Wednesday, 4:25 pm
  • Ty Lawson (groin) ruled out against Warriors
    Ty Lawson (groin) has been ruled out against the Warriors on Wednesday.

    Advice: That means it will be the Darren Collison show in what should be an up-tempo matchup. Collison is playing his best ball at the right time and will be a very popular DFS option this evening. Lawson should be back after the break, but Colllison should still be owned in all leagues. Daily Slant: With Lawson out again tonight, Darren Collison sets up as an elite $/point play considering he should see all the court time he can handle. DeMarcus Cousins is clearly going to dominate usage in Sacramento, but even so it'll be tough for Collison to disappoint with roughly 40 minutes on the floor. Ben McLemore and Aaron Afflalo also figure to see minutes between 30-35, but neither offer much in the way of $/point upside against GS. Wednesday, 3:10 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. Wednesday, 3:05 pm
  • Cavs not resting healthy players vs. Pacers
    Coach Ty Lue said he is not resting his healthy players on Wednesday against the Pacers.

    Advice: That means Kyrie Irving and LeBron James are both ready to roll as they close out their first halves on the second half of a back-to-back set. Irving scored 25 points on Tuesday and could be in for a huge night tonight based on how his usage rate spikes without Kevin Love. Wednesday, 2:29 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. Wednesday, 12:50 pm
  • 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. Wednesday, 10:33 am
  • Report: DEN open to moving Danilo Gallinari
    The Nuggets are reportedly open to moving Danilo Gallinari (groin) at the trade deadline.

    Advice: Gallinari has reportedly received interest from the Clippers, Celtics and Rockets, and of those locations, Los Angeles and Houston would be the best potential landing spots. As for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves, Gallinari will not play, and with Wilson Chandler (illness) being listed as questionable, we could again see Juan Hernangomez in the starting lineup. To be clear, nothing is imminent on the trade front for The Rooster, but this is a situation we'll be monitoring closely. Wednesday, 7:53 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. Tuesday, 10:37 pm
  • Kyle Korver scores 6 in 27 minutes
    Kyle Korver hit 2-of-5 shots (both 3-pointers) for six points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in Tuesday's win over the Wolves.

    Advice: Iman Shumpert (ankle) was back from a three-game absence, started and played 26 minutes, and it looks like the two are going to be locked into a timeshare until further notice. Making both of them borderline fantasy players to own. But if you need 3-pointers, Korver should be able to help, regardless of whether or not Shumpert's playing. Tuesday, 8:16 pm
  • Kyrie Irving scores 25 points vs. Wolves
    Kyrie Irving had 25 points, seven assists and two 3-pointers on 10-of-27 shooting in Tuesday's 116-108 win over the Wolves.

    Advice: He would have had a better night had he not gone just 2-of-10 from downtown but he also managed to get through the night without a single turnover. Irving shouldn't be too impacted by the absence of Kevin Love (knee surgery) for the next six weeks, and it looks like Channing Frye will be able to give Irving a nice assist option in Love's place.

  • Ty Lawson (adductor) won't play Tuesday
    Ty Lawson (adductor) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: He was initially a game-time call, so there's a chance he could play on Wednesday vs. the Warriors. With Lawson out, Darren Collison will log all the minutes he can handle and Ben McLemore gets a nice bump as well. Tuesday, 6:31 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari (groin) won't play Wednesday
    Danilo Gallinari (groin) will not play Wednesday vs. Minnesota.

    Advice: The Nuggets are smartly playing it safe and keeping Gallo out through the All-Star break, which will give him another full week to heal. With Kenneth Faried (ankle) and Darrell Arthur (knee) already ruled out, and Wilson Chandler (illness) questionable, Juancho Hernangomez and Will Barton will see all the minutes they can handle on Wednesday. Hernangomez, who exploded for 27 points, six 3-pointers and 10 rebounds in 43 minutes on Monday, will be a very popular DFS play on Wednesday night. Tuesday, 2:07 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Wednesday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Wednesday vs. Minnesota.

    Advice: Arthur has been dealing with an assortment of ailments all season. He's appeared in just 29 of the Nuggets 55 games. With Kenneth Faried (ankle) and Danilo Gallinari (groin) also ruled out, rookie Juancho Hernangomez and Will Barton will see plenty of playing time again on Wednesday. Tuesday, 2:06 pm
  • Ty Lawson (adductor) a game-time decision
    Ty Lawson (adductor) will be a game-time call for Tuesday's matchup with the Lakers.

    Advice: Lawson has spent the past two games on the sidelines, and it might make more sense for Sacramento to just withhold him from tonight's game in order to give him some extra rest heading into the break. Ben McLemore should draw another start if Lawson is out, and he'd be on the radar as a 3-point streamer or DFS punt play. Stay tuned.Daily Slant: If Lawson isn't able to play tonight, Darren Collison will become an even safer DFS target while Ben McLemore will also become a stronger tournament target. DeMarcus Cousins' usage sits a shade under 40% with Gay, Temple and Lawson off the floor this year, but it's Collison and McLemore that follow him with usage rates around 20% among the regulars. While Collison is already locked into big minutes given injuries, McLemore would also likely play 30+ minutes without Lawson. Tuesday, 11:43 am
  • Tyreke Evans scores 15 points
    Tyreke Evans scored 15 points in 25 minutes vs. the Suns on Monday.

    Advice: Evans finished 6-of-11 from the field and dished out four assists with four rebounds, one steal and three turnovers. He was expected to be on a 20-minute limit, so it's a great sign that he played 25. Evans should continue to trend up after the All-Star break, so this feels like the appropriate time to pick him up again. Monday, 10:41 pm
  • Jameer Nelson scores 23 against Steph Curry
    Jameer Nelson hit 9-of-14 shots and five 3-pointers for 23 points, three rebounds and seven assists in 34 minutes of Monday's blowout 132-110 win over the Warriors.

    Advice: Emmanuel Mudiay (back) might be out through the break, while the Nuggets are making a run at the No. 8 seed in the West, which means Nelson could keep the starting job until further notice. Nelson is averaging 17 points, 9.0 assists and 3.7 3-pointers over his last three games, and is worth using in all formats until we see what happens with Mudiay. Monday, 9:14 pm
