  • Dwight Powell scores 14 points
    Dwight Powell scored 14 points with three rebounds in 27 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: This one was all about the matchup. The Mavs needed another big body against the Jazz and played Powell out there to start overtime. He only averaged 11.0 minutes per game in his previous two, so obviously he needs to do it a few more times. He'll get a bad matchup for minutes against the Lakers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:30 pm
  • Dirk Nowitzki scores just three
    Dirk Nowitzki made just 1-of-13 from the field for four points in 25 minutes agaisnt the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: Yuck. Nowitzki tweaked his ankle on Thursday and wasn't limited tonight. Although, he didn't play all of overtime likely to keep his minutes down. He played a combined 54 minutes in the back-to-back set, which is almost double what he did in the previous instances since his injury. Nowitzki is worth owning now, but he'll be a sell-high candidate all year, especially with the Mavs losing so many games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:26 pm
  • Paul Millsap scores 14 in full line
    Paul Millsap needed just five attempts from the field and four from the line to get to 14 points in a 102-93 win over the Bulls on Friday, adding nine rebounds, two assists, two blocks, one steal and two 3-pointers in only 24 minutes.

    Advice: That is a fantastic, prototypical Millsap line. His fantasy owners have seen shades of the player they drafted lately. In his last 11, Millsap averaged 19.5 points, 8.1 boards, 4.5 assists, 1.5 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.4 treys. The news of him reportedly not on the block along with the Hawks going 10-2 in their last 12 is great for his value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:15 pm
  • Ivica Zubac only plays six minutes Friday
    Ivica Zubac only played six minutes on Friday vs. the Pacers, but looked solid with four points on 2-of-2 shooting with one rebound.

    Advice: Timofey Mozgov (25 minutes) and Tarik Black (28 minutes) got the bulk of the frontcourt minutes on Friday, but we'd expect that to change after the All-Star break -- the Lakers are just 16-31 and will want to shift their focus towards player development. Zubac was coming off a breakout game in which he scored 11 points (5-of-11 FGs) with 13 rebounds and three blocks in 26 minutes, but treat him like a stash until he gets consistent burn. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:48 pm
  • Taj Gibson scores six points
    Taj Gibson (ankle) scored six points with three rebounds and one turnover in 18 minutes against the Hawks on Friday.

    Advice: He looked fine and the low minutes were due to the blowout. Gibson hasn't exactly lit it up lately and the numerous combinations for the rotation has hurt his consistency. Plus, a possible trade would likely hurt him, so Gibson's owners may want to see what is out there with so many hot pickups lately. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:42 pm
  • Al Jefferson scores 20 points again
    Al Jefferson matched his season high with 20 points vs. the Lakers on Friday, adding six rebounds, one assist and two steals in 17 minutes.

    Advice: He had 20 points in 17 minutes in his previous game as well, but you simply can't trust him because he's only picking up the scraps behind starting center Myles Turner right now. Big Al hit 7-of-15 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line, so at least we know he still has some gas left in the tank in case Turner ever picks up a knock. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:39 pm
  • Myles Turner scores 15 points in loss
    Myles Turner scored 15 points on 6-of-12 shooting with four rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks in 33 minutes vs. the Lakers on Friday.

    Advice: Turner is having a breakout season in every sense of the word and Pacers president Larry Bird gushed about his young center this week. "He wants to be great. He’s going to be great," Bird said. "To me, I think he’s got a chance to be one of the best players or maybe the best player [in the franchise’s history]." Turner is just 20 years old and is flirting with top-20 value in standard leagues on the season, so he's going to be a superstar in real life and in fantasy for a very long time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell scores eight points
    Montrezl Harrel scored eight points in a start against the Warriors on Friday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal.

    Advice: It'll be interesting for Harrell now that Clint Capela looked fantastic. For what it's worth, Harrell has looked better than Nene (rest), so maybe the Rockets just roll with two bigs. They also don't play two-center lineups, so the No. 2 battle will be important. We would still hold him in most cases because he would likely have value with 20-24 minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Clint Capela scores career-high 22 points
    Clint Capela showed he was close to 100 percent against the Warriors on Friday, scoring a career-high 22 points with 12 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 21 minutes.

    Advice: We'll keep this one simple here. If Capela is somehow on your waiver wire, go fix that right now and pick him up. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:49 pm
  • Anthony Davis gets banged up yet again
    Anthony Davis suffered a right quad contusion against the Nets on Friday, finishing with 22 points, nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks in 27 minutes.

    Advice: That's yet another injury for Davis. In the last week, we have him down for bumps and bruises to the following areas: right quad, left hip, right hip, tailbone, left fingers, left thumb and right wrist. Before the injury, he was actually going off, but he was limping throughout the second half. He'll likely be on the injury report, but he has until Jan. 23 to get right.

  • Zach Randolph scores 20 w/ 10 boards
    Zach Randolph scored 20 points with 10 rebounds in Friday's win over the Kings.

    Advice: Z-Bo finished 7-of-14 from the field with a pair of assists in 24 minutes. He also hit multiple 3-pointers (two) for the first time as a Grizzly which included a 35-foot buzzer-beating triple. Randolph was coming off a six-point dud vs. the Wizards, but he's still averaging 14.2 points, 11.2 rebounds and 1.4 assists over his last five. His upside is low due to the lack of defensive stats, but he's worth owning right now. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Brook Lopez scores 23 points in win
    Brook Lopez scored 23 points with eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday during a 143-114 win.

    Advice: The Nets offense was just ridiculous today, scoring more points than any Eastern Conference team in a regulation game this season. It was also the second-most scoring in franchise history for regulation and most since 1982. As for Lopez, his fantasy owners will be on red alert with possible rest coming up on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:17 pm
  • Marc Gasol scores 28 points in win over Kings
    Marc Gasol scored 28 points in 33 minutes in Friday's 107-91 win over the Kings.

    Advice: Gasol filled it up tonight, shooting 9-of-19 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line with nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and three triples in 33 minutes. Gasol has now scored 24+ points in three straight games, but his owners will want to make sure he's active on Saturday vs. the Rockets on the second night of a back-to-back set -- Gasol has rested twice this season and both DNPs occurred during back-to-back sets. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:15 pm
  • Justin Hamilton doesn't do much in start
    Justin Hamilton played 24 minutes in a start for Trevor Booker (rest) on Friday against the Pelicans, scoring six points with five rebounds and no turnovers.

    Advice: Somewhat surprisingly, he played 100 percent of his minutes at power forward today. The Nets have played him as a straight center and as a combo big before, so he'll likely get at least some minutes when Brook Lopez gets a night off. Just keep an eye on him for now, especially with the Nets playing Rondae Hollis-Jefferson at the four more. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:13 pm
  • Nerlens Noel brings the defense
    Nerlens Noel scored five points with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and two turnovers in 21 minutes against the Blazers on Friday.

    Advice: Most importantly, Noel had a game-sealing stop at the rim against Mason Plumlee to get the win. Noel's rim protection has been a big change for the second unit instead of Jahlil Okafor, so his minutes should be safe unless the 76ers go all-out showcase on Okafor. With Joel Embiid likely out on Saturday for rest, Noel should get close to 20 minutes. He's worth owning in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:04 pm
  • Ryan Anderson ruled out for Saturday
    Ryan Anderson (illness) will not play on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: He was not right at all with just nine minutes on Friday. A doctor told him he may have to deal with this stomach bug for 1-2 weeks, so there is a very good chance Anderson misses more games. While he is out, we'll see more Sam Dekker and Corey Brewer. If you want to pick one up in a deeper league, we'd prefer Dekker. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:50 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo double-doubles w/ 4 blocks
    Bismack Biyombo double-doubled vs. the Bucks on Friday with 13 points, 13 rebounds, four blocks and one steal.

    Advice: He played 25 minutes off the bench compared to 23 for starting center Nikola Vucevic. Biyombo hit 5-of-6 from the field and finished one block shy of his season high. Vucevic's name popped up in another trade rumor on Friday which linked him to the Heat, so keep in mind that Biyombo could be back in the starting lineup if Vooch is moved. If you don't mind his awful FT percentage, Biyombo is worth keeping an eye on if you're in need of rebounds and blocks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:35 pm
  • John Henson plays 16 minutes in loss
    John Henson played just 16 minutes vs. the Magic on Friday, scoring eight points with five rebounds, two assists and a block.

    Advice: He finished 3-of-4 from the field, but this game got away from the Bucks early on and coach Jason Kidd opted to use all three centers tonight -- Miles Plumlee played 16 minutes and Greg Monroe played 14. Henson's not consistent enough right now for standard-league owners and the center position in Milwaukee is one of most annoying situations in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:53 pm
  • Jared Sullinger gets 17 minutes
    Jared Sullinger played 17 minutes against the Hornets on Friday with three points, two rebounds, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: That's an increase from his 14 minutes in his debut on Wednesday. The Raptors look to be viewing him as a backup center for now, but not having Lucas Noguiera is obviously a factor on that. Sullinger will likely have a minutes limit for a long time and his upside isn't great anyway, so he's not the most attractive add. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:37 pm
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) will not return
    Ryan Anderson (illness) will not return to Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: He started the game which was a surprise, but clearly didn't look right and finished scoreless in nine minutes. Anderson should be considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies. Corey Brewer started the second half in his place, but there should be more minutes available for Sam Dekker as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:28 pm
  • Ryan Anderson starts, Brewer to bench
    Updating a previous report, Ryan Anderson (illness) started on Friday vs. the Warriors with Corey Brewer returning to the bench.

    Advice: He's not close to 100 percent, so we still expect his minutes to be limited. We'll let you know how he looks after the game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:16 pm
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) to play off bench Fri
    Ryan Anderson (illness) will not start Friday vs. the Warriors, but is expected to play off the bench.

    Advice: Corey Brewer will start at small forward again, with Trevor Ariza shifting to power forward. Anderson has missed each of the Rockets last two games and was limited in the two games prior due to the a bad case of the flu. Doctors initially told Anderson that he would miss 1-2 weeks. Ryno's minutes will very likely be limited, as he is still not yet close to 100 percent. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:57 pm
  • Alexis Ajinca a healthy inactive
    Alexis Ajinca is a healthy inactive for Friday against the Nets.

    Advice: There is no reason to play him against the NBA's fastest team. In other news, Ajinca denied reports of him asking for a trade. He needs a lot of things to happen to get playing time. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:49 pm
  • Dirk Nowitzki is good to go
    Dirk Nowitzki is not expected to have a minutes limit in a back-to-back game against the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: He said he rolled his ankle late on Thursday, but said he's done it thousands of times and isn't worried about it. For now, expect Nowitzki to get minutes in the upper 20s tonight, but obviously he's a risky DFS play against the Jazz. This is also a positive for his season-long value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:05 pm
  • Justin Hamilton to start at PF on Friday
    With Trevor Booker (rest) sitting out, Justin Hamilton will start at power forward on Friday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Hamilton is averaging 7.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 0.8 assists in his four previous starts this season. Thus, he is a risky DFS play. Luis Scola and Quincy Acy will also likely see additional minutes off the bench with Booker out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:45 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell will start against Warriors
    Montezl Harrell will get the start against the Warriors on Friday night.

    Advice: With Nene resting and Clint Capela limited to 11 minutes in the last game, Harrell should play a bunch. That said, the Rockets will likely be going small quite a bit in this game and Capela will get more than 11 minutes tonight. We still think Harrell is a very good bet for 24-plus minutes, which makes him a very intriguing target. He should remain owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:25 pm
  • Ryan Anderson will try to play on Friday
    Ryan Anderson (illness) will try to play on Friday against the Warriors.

    Advice: He was not feeling good at shootaround and was headed to get an IV. In other words, there's a decent chance he can't play his normal minutes tonight. If he can't go, we should see more Sam Dekker and Corey Brewer while Trevor Ariza plays the four. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:19 pm
  • Anthony Davis wearing right wrist tape
    Anthony Davis was wearing right wrist wrap in warmups on Friday before the game against the Nets.

    Advice: To be clear, he is fully expected to play without any restriction. Davis suffered a minor wrist injury on Wednesday, but he did return. He has recently suffered injuries to his left hip, right hip, right wrist, left fourth and fifth fingers, left thumb and tailbone in the last week. All that said, he could have a massive game today against the NBA's fastest team. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:16 pm
    GTD
     
  • Lucas Nogueira out again for Friday
    Lucas Noguiera (concussion) will not play on Friday against the Hornets.

    Advice: There should be plenty of run going to a suddenly hot Jonas Valanciunas. Jared Sullinger also was the first backup center in the last game, which figures to happen yet again today. There were also four spare minutes for Jakob Poeltl as the third-string center. We should see a lot of small-ball fours in this matchup. Nogueira is still a stash in most cases. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:09 pm
  • Darrell Arthur listed as questionable
    Darrell Arthur (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: This is an upgrade from him being listed as doubtful to play on Thursday before the DNP. Arthur is likely out of the rotation anyway with Kenneth Faried playing well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:09 pm
  • Nikola Jokic (ankle) is probable
    Nikola Jokic (ankle) is listed as probable for Saturday against the Clippers.

    Advice: It's important to note that he is listed for an ankle, which was the same reason he was listed before Thursday's 35-point gem. Jokic had some knee to upper-leg contact and was in some pain for about two minutes, but he didn't miss time. He should be all set for another big game. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:01 pm
  • Nogueira (concussion) unlikely to play Friday
    Lucas Nogueira (concussion) appears unlikely to play Friday vs. the Hornets. With Patrick Patterson (knee) also expected to miss Friday's game, Paskal Siakam will likely to start. Norman Powell and Terrence Ross could also see additional minutes if the Raps choose to play small ball.

    Advice: Nogueira also missed Wednesday's game due to the lingering effects of his brain injury. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:35 am
  • Taj Gibson (ankle) will play Friday night
    Taj Gibson (ankle) will play Friday night vs. Atlanta, according to head coach Fred Hoiberg.

    Advice: It's safe to assume Gibson will slide back into the starting lineup, which will bump Paul Zipser back to the bench, and likely out of the rotation altogether. Bobby Portis and Doug McDermott will also likely see a few less minutes on Friday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:59 am
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) questionable Friday
    Ryan Anderson (illness) participated in shootaround but remains listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

    Advice: Anderson has missed each of the Rockets last two games and was limited in the two games prior as he battled the flu bug. He planned to get intravenous fluids before leaving Toyota Center. "Not feeling so great. Just a stomach virus that's been going around," Anderson said. "It's still kind of there, but I'm going to get an IV after this and try to do it for the game. It's just draining." Anderson is expected to slide back into the starting lineup, assuming he is healthy enough to suit up. Corey Brewer has started at small forward with Anderson out. Daily Slant: If Anderson is forced to miss another contest, we should see a nice spike in usage for James Harden, which is saying something considering he's already 2nd in the league in that regard. His usage sits at a cool 36.3% on the year, but that number jumps to 41.2% with Anderson off the floor. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:28 am
  • Anthony Davis aiming to win All-Star MVP
    Anthony Davis said that he will definitely do his best to take home MVP honors in the 2017 NBA All-Star Game, which will be played in New Orleans.

    Advice: 'I'm definitely going after trying to get MVP, especially here in New Orleans. 'Coach Gentry told me every time I catch it, put it up. So I'm going to go out there and represent the city and try to walk away with that MVP for sure," said Davis. The Brow also talked about how he is becoming more comfortable playing center. ''I like playing the four, but right now with the team that we have and the way we are playing with small ball, it's helpful and I'm beneficial to the team at the five." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:18 am

  • DeAndre Jordan scores career-high 29 points
    DeAndre Jordan scored a career-high 29 points with 16 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in Thursday's loss to the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Jordan had a huge night, but did miss some key free throws late in the fourth quarter, which resulted in a 12-point blown lead for the Clippers. Hack-a-Jordan was in full effect late in the game. He is averaging 17.8 points, 18 rebounds, and 2.4 blocks in his last five games. The Clippers will need Jordan to step up in the next 6-8 weeks with Chris Paul (hand) out. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:20 pm
  • Dewayne Dedmon scores seven in 19 minutes
    Dewayne Dedmon scored seven points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and no turnovers in 19 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

    Advice: He's likely getting at least a slight bump in playing time with Pau Gasol (hand) out. Interestingly, both Dedmon and David Lee have played 84 minutes each next to LaMarcus Aldridge in the last 15 games, but coach Gregg Popovich may like Dedmon is his current role off the bench to back up LMA and Lee. There is still a chance he can up his minutes from 15.6 to the low 20s. For what it's worth, his per-24 stats are 7.3 points, nine boards, 0.9 steals and 1.3 blocks, so getting to even just 20 minutes would make him interesting. If you want offense get Lee, if you want defense get Dedmon. DD has the higher upside for the blocking scarcity. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:18 pm
  • Trust The Jokic: Nikola scores career-high 35
    Nikola Jokic erupted for a career-high 35 points during a 118-104 loss to the Spurs on Thursday, adding 12 rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He went bonkers in the fourth quarter, scoring 14 straight points for the Nuggets to keep them in this game. As you might expect, coach Mike Malone had some nice things to say after the game. "Whether it's playmaking, scoring, rebounding, he's a terrific young talent who's only getting better before our eyes," Malone said. Jokic became the first Nugget with three straight games of at least 25 points and 10 boards since Carmelo Anthony. In those three games, Jokic averaged 31.3 points, 12.7 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals, 1.7 blocks and 1.3 treys on 61.9 percent from the field. He's been a top-five player in his last 10 games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:41 pm
  • Dirk Nowitzki leads Mavs with 19 points
    Dirk Nowitzki scored 19 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in Thursday's loss to the Heat.

    Advice: Nowitzki led the Mavs in scoring and made some clutch shots in the fourth quarter, but his effort was not enough to get a victory. It was reported after the game that he turned his ankle during the game, but was able to play through it. The Mavs play tomorrow night, so it is something worth monitoring. He is having a good month, averaging 28.4 minutes, 15.6 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 2.1 3-pointers per game in January. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:31 pm
  • Walton not ready to say Zubac turned corner
    Coach Luke Walton said Ivica Zubac hasn't turned the corner yet.

    Advice: "I’m just going to say he was really good," Walton said. Zubac had his best game as a pro in a loss to the Nuggets on Tuesday, scoring 11 points with 13 rebounds and two blocks. Zubac also has talked about his time in the D-League like it's possibly over, so he may be sticking in the rotation. It'll take some time for Zublocka a.k.a. Zu Alcindor to turn in some value, but he's worth a stash if you're in a deeper league. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:22 pm
  • Taj Gibson (ankle) is a game-time call Friday
    Taj Gibson (ankle) is now a game-time call on Friday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Gibson returned to practice on Thursday, but the Bulls want to see how his ankle responds at the morning shootaround on Friday. It sounds like he's closer to probable, so his owners can go ahead and pencil him into their lineups. If the Bulls end up holding him out, expect them to use a committee approach to soak up his minutes. For what it's worth, Gibson said he's feeling "a lot better." Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:26 am
  • Nikola Jokic (ankle) will play on Thursday
    Nikola Jokic (right ankle sprain) will play on Thursday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: He was listed as probable and his status was never really in doubt for tonight's game. Make sure the fantasy superstar is deployed in all lineups, even in a tough matchup vs. the Spurs -- Jokic had 19 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and a steal in their previous meeting on Jan. 5. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:38 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) ruled out for Thursday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play on Thursday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Of course he won't. Arthur can't stay healthy and the Nuggets are going to limit his workload whenever they can. With Wilson Chandler (personal) out and Danilo Gallinari (ankle) questionable, we should see a lot of Kenneth Faried tonight and may even get a Jusuf Nurkic sighting. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:19 am
  • Jared Sullinger returned to action on Wednesday January 18. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:30 am
  • Myles Turner scores 16 points vs. Kings
    Myles Turner made 7-of-9 from the field for 16 points with five rebounds, one block and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: While he didn't do much damage on the glass and only had one block, Turner was really good against DeMarcus Cousins on the defensive end. Turner had seen a sudden spike on the glass this month, averaging 10.3 boards per game in his previous January games -- he only had 6.5 in December. Turner has held steady as a second-round player in standard leagues this season. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:59 pm
  • Al Jefferson scores 20 points in win
    Al Jefferson scored a season-high 20 points with three rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 17 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was huge in the second half to help get the win. Jefferson said coach Nate McMillan challenged the Pacers' manhood at half. Jefferson is playing better with a 10-point game on Monday, but he's not really a pickup in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:55 pm
  • Anthony Davis (hip, thumb, hand) escapes Wed
    Anthony Davis (hip, thumb) played 29 minutes on Wednesday, finishing with 21 points (9-of-17 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), 14 rebounds, four assists and one block.

    Advice: AD survived yet another injury scare tonight when he left to get X-rays on his left hand, but he quickly returned while wearing a splint on two fingers. He seems to be perpetually banged up, yet he's only missed three games this season. The risk of a shutdown is limited by the fact that New Orleans is just 1.5 games out of the playoff picture, and thus far Davis has paid off richly for his risk-taking owners. As a precaution, we'll add him to the injury report ahead of Friday's home game vs. Brooklyn. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:00 pm
    GTD
     
  • Bismack Biyombo plays through bruised knee
    Bismack Biyombo played through a bruised knee to finish Wednesday's loss in New Orleans with four points, seven rebounds and no other stats in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Biyombo recently lost his starting center job to Nikola Vucevic, but even prior to the demotion he was a fantasy liability. He offers nothing beyond boards and blocks, and his awful FT shooting (49.6 percent) is destructive in roto leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:44 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell scores 12 with five blocks
    Montrezl Harrell got the start against the Bucks on Wednesday, blocking a career-high five shots with 12 points, eight rebounds, four assists and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: He's been awesome and the Rockets have a good problem with both Harrell and Clint Capela outperforming their expectations. For what it's worth, the other four starters with Harrell have a +1.7 net rating in 161 minutes while that foursome and Capela is +14.8, so it does make sense to move Harrell to the bench once Capela is 100 percent. Whatever the case, both players could still have value with 20-24 minutes. Obviously they would need Nene to fall out of the rotation, which could happen. Harrell is a hold for now. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:39 pm
  • Clint Capela scores just five off bench
    Clint Capela came off the bench against the Bucks on Wednesday with five points, three rebounds and two blocks in 11 minutes.

    Advice: He still has a minutes limit and it may stick around. The good news is Capela came in for garbage time, so maybe the plan all along was to have him close out for this game. While he hasn't done much yet, he has to be owned in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:32 pm
  • John Henson plays 19 minutes vs. HOU
    John Henson played 19 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday with four points, five rebounds, one steal and one block.

    Advice: He was right at his monthly average in playing time, but there has been a slight downward trend. Henson hasn't really been in foul trouble too often, but his play has really taken a turn for the worse. He'll be in a great spot on Friday against the Magic, so a bad game there may be the final straw for his patient owners. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:14 pm
  • Nerlens Noel (left ankle) quiet in return Wed
    Nerlens Noel (sprained left ankle) returned on Wednesday with five points, three rebounds, three turnovers and zero assists, steals or blocks in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Noel missed Monday's game but his return confirms that it was a minor sprain, as the Sixers typically err on the side of caution with injuries. He's usually far more productive on a per-minute basis, so his owners should forgive him tonight's dud. Expect better vs. the Blazers on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:38 pm
  • Marc Gasol scores 28 points vs. Wizards
    Marc Gasol scored 28 points against the Wizards on Wednesday during a 104-101 loss, adding two rebounds, seven assists, one block and one turnover in 39 minutes.

    Advice: The Grizzlies aren't quite playing their best ball and are now down to the No. 7 seed. Gasol also hasn't played as well as he did in December with his January averages dropping in points, rebounds, blocks and treys. He gets two home favorable matchups over the weekend with the Kings on Friday and the Rockets on Saturday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:21 pm
  • Jared Sullinger plays 14 minutes in debut
    Jared Sullinger (foot) looked good during his season debut on Wednesday, making 4-of-10 shots to finish with eight points, three rebounds, and no other stats in 14 minutes.

    Advice: The Raptors are going to be very cautious with Sullinger, as they were with DeMarre Carroll, and he'll be subject to limited minutes and occasional DNP-CDs until further notice. He should play both PF and backup C once he's up to speed, but most owners shouldn't stash him just yet. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:20 pm
  • Anthony Davis returns to action vs. Magic
    Anthony Davis (left thumb, left hand sprain, right hip) returned to action on Wednesday.

    Advice: X-rays were negative on his left hand and he should be OK. Hopefully, he can stay healthy for the rest of the game tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:57 pm

  • Confirmed: Anthony Davis will play Wednesday
    Anthony Davis (right hip, left thumb) will play Wednesday vs. the Magic, as expected.

    Advice: Davis looked fine while going through his pregame routine, and there's been no discussion of a minutes restriction, so his owners can feel free to fire him up. Alvin Gentry may have had the quote of the year during his pregame interview, stating, "AD will play hurt. He's played hurt since the day he got here." Yup. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:40 pm

  • Clint Capela will come off the bench vs. MIL
    Clint Capela will come off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Capela started in his return from a 15-game absence on Tuesday, but only lasted nine minutes, so it doesn't make much sense to start him while he's dealing with a minutes limit. Capela does have some nice upside, but it'll probably take him at least a week before he's really up to speed. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:33 pm
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) out Wednesday vs. MIL
    Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

    Advice: Corey Brewer got the start on Tuesday with Anderson on the sidelines, and Sam Dekker saw some increased playing time with the second unit, but neither guy did that much. Instead, James Harden took on most of the offensive burden and popped off for a 40-point triple-double, and it'll likely be more of the same this evening. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:28 pm
  • Harrell starting, Clint Capela to the bench
    Montrezl Harrell will move into the starting lineup for Wednesday's game, sending Clint Capela to the bench.

    Advice: Capela is being eased back into things after a lengthy layoff, so it doesn't make sense to have him start if he's only going to play around 10 minutes or so. Harrell will likely split minutes at the five-spot with Capela and Nene, so he's not a very attractive option in most formats despite the starter tag. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:25 pm
  • Jared Sullinger will make season debut in PHI
    Jared Sullinger (foot) will make his season debut and play limited minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Wow. This comes as a surprise after Sullinger was cleared for practice on Jan. 13. He's coming off a foot surgery and chances are his conditioning isn't 100 percent yet. Sullinger will likely have a minutes limit for the foreseeable future, so he's only worth a pickup in deeper leagues right now. His upside isn't the greatest. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:09 pm
  • Noel will play; Embiid still questionable
    Nerlens Noel (ankle) will play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

    Advice: Joel Embiid (illness) is still questionable to play. Noel should be looking at minutes in the low 20s regardless of Embiid's status. Jahlil Okafor could be getting minutes in the upper 20s or he could be a DNP-CD. Noel is worth owning in standard leagues right now. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:18 pm
  • Jokic, Gallinari probable Thursday vs. SA
    Nikola Jokic (right ankle sprain) and Danilo Gallinari (right ankle sprain) are probable to play Thursday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: When they're listed as probable in Denver, that means that they'll get out there, so owners can feel confident plugging these guys in their lineups on Thursday. Jokic has been putting up top-3 numbers in 9-cat leagues over the past two weeks, so he's obviously a must-start guy every time he's active. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:04 pm
  • Darrell Arthur is doubtful to play
    Darrell Arthur (knee) is doubtful to play against the Spurs on Thursday.

    Advice: He did not play on Tuesday due to his oft-injured knee. With Wilson Chandler (personal) listed as out, there could be plenty of minutes going to Kenneth Faried and even Juan Hernangomez. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:03 pm
  • Lucas Nogueira will not play on Wednesday
    Lucas Nogueira (concussion) will not play on Wednesday against the 76ers.

    Advice: He had some blurred vision on Tuesday and is still in the concussion protocol. Nogueira's fantasy owners should probably just sit tight and hope he can return this weekend. With him out, Paskal Siakam is likely to start, but fantasy owners should steer clear. The Raptors could also go small to give more run to Norman Powell and Terrence Ross. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:58 pm
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) questionable for Wed
    Ryan Anderson (illness) is questionable to play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: He missed Tuesday's game against the Heat, which allowed Corey Brewer to get a start. If Anderson does miss another game, Brewer, Sam Dekker, Trevor Ariza and Pat Beverley could all see more run. Dekker could be a decent DFS punt today. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:41 pm
  • Taj Gibson scheduled to play on Friday night
    Taj Gibson (ankle) is scheduled to play on Friday against the Hawks.

    Advice: He did not practice on Wednesday, but the day off was planned before today. Before missing Monday, Gibson was coming in with some momentum with back-to-back 32-minute games on Saturday and Sunday, averaging 16.5 points and 12.0 boards in those games. Paul Zipser, Bobby Portis and Doug McDermott could lose some minutes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:43 am
  • DeAndre Jordan gets an excused absence
    DeAndre Jordan had an excused absence from practice on Wednesday and will play on Thursday against the Wolves.

    Advice: He'll be back and the Clippers will need him out there. Interestingly, Jordan doesn't really see a bump in usage rate without Chris Paul (hamstring) next to him while his efficiency is similar. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:26 am
  • Bismack Biyombo (knee) will play Wednesday
    Bismack Biyombo (knee) will play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Biyombo took a nasty spill during Monday's game, but he played through it, and after resting up on Tuesday he'll be good to go for tonight's game. Biyombo hasn't been very good this season, owning meager averages of 6.1 points, 7.6 boards and 1.3 blocks per contest, so while his bones may very well be infused with liquid adamantium, he's not worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:33 am
  • Anthony Davis (hip, thumb) says he'll play
    Anthony Davis (right hip, left thumb) said that he will play Wednesday vs. Orlando.

    Advice: Davis really likes going up against the Magic, in eight career outings against Orlando he owns impressive averages of 18.8 points, 13.4 boards, 1.4 dimes, 1.4 steals and a whopping 4.1 swats per contest, so he's on the radar as a potential DFS target. Just check back for official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:12 am
    GTD
     
  • Nerlens Noel (ankle) probable for Wednesday
    Nerlens Noel (ankle) is probable to play Wednesday vs. Toronto.

    Advice: Noel got in a full practice on Tuesday and said that he was planning on suiting up for Wednesday's game, so it's looking like the ankle issue will only end up costing him one game on the sidelines. Joel Embiid (illness) could miss tonight's game, which would present both Noel and Jahlil Okafor with the opportunity for some extended minutes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:45 am
  • Ivica Zubac scores 11 w/ 13 boards, 3 blocks
    Ivica Zubac had multiple career highs on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets with 11 points (5-of-11 FGs), 13 rebounds and three blocks in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He also added one steal and one assist and sparked a comeback attempt that fell just short. The rookie was very impressive during the summer league and he's been lighting it up in the D-League as well, and coach Luke Walton has been talking about finding him more minutes. Zubac made just 10 brief appearances prior to Tuesday, but he should get a lot more opportunities to play in the second half of the season with the Lakers sitting in 14th place in the West with a 15-30 record. He looks like a great stash for the second half of the season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:04 pm
  • Nikola Jokic racks up 29 points, 15 rebounds
    Nikola Jokic stayed red hot on Tuesday, racking up 29 points, 15 rebounds, three blocks and a 3-pointer on 12-of-22 shooting in a 127-121 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: The Lakers are pretty bad against opposing bigs and Jokic took advantage tonight. He's absolutely crushing right now, scoring 29 and 30 points in each of his last two games, and averaging 25 points, 11.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 3-pointers over his last five games, while shooting a ridiculous 65 percent from the floor and 76 percent from the line. He might be the most underrated fantasy player in the land right now. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:59 pm
  • Justin Hamilton returns to bench, scores 9
    Justin Hamilton returned to the bench on Tuesday vs. the Raptors, scoring nine points on 4-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, one assist and one triple in 13 minutes.

    Advice: That's an impressive stat line in limited minutes, but Hamilton usually doesn't have much value while Brook Lopez is active. Lopez did tweak his right ankle in the loss, so put Hamilton on your radar in case Lopez misses Friday's game vs. the Pelicans. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:09 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell plays 16 minutes on Tuesday
    Montrezl Harrell played just 16 minutes and hit 5-of-6 shots for 13 points, one rebound and no blocks on Tuesday.

    Advice: Clint Capela started, but played just nine minutes, while Harrell and Nene handled the center minutes off the bench. Nene had four points and seven rebounds in 24 minutes, but both players are going to take a hit once Capela gets his body back in NBA shape after missing 15 games with a broken leg. If you are ready to drop Harrell, it makes sense. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:08 pm
  • Clint Capela fails to score in return
    Clint Capela played for the first time in 15 games after a broken leg and started on Tuesday, but missed all three of his shots and didn't score in just nine minutes of action.

    Advice: The good news is that he's back and the bad news is that it will be baby steps for Capela as he works his way back into game shape. He's worth holding, but it may be a week or so before we see him return to form. He did have five rebounds and a block, for what it's worth. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:03 pm
  • Brook Lopez scores 28, tweaks right ankle
    Brook Lopez scored 28 points in Tuesday's loss to the Raptors, but appeared to roll his right ankle in the fourth quarter.

    Advice: Lopez had a slight limp on the next couple plays, but he was moving better and better as the fourth quarter progressed. There's a chance that his ankle will swell up on him overnight, but luckily he gets a few days of rest before Friday's game vs. the Pelicans. Lopez added eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks on 11-of-23 shooting from the field and 6-of-6 from the line. If you're in a deep league, handcuffing him with Justin Hamilton isn't a bad idea. For what it's worth, Lopez said he felt "fine" after the game. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:02 pm
  • Nogueira (blurred vision) done for night
    Lucas Nogueira (blurred vision) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: He has blurred vision in his left eye and will be re-evaluated again after the game. He was also being evaluated for a concussion, but we should know more about that soon. Paskal Siakam started the second half and Jakop Poeltl could play a bit more as well. Bebe finished with three points (a trey) and two rebounds in seven minutes. There are no great speculative pickups here. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:50 pm
  • Lucas Nogueira (head) goes to locker room
    Lucas Nogueira was playing well Tuesday before taking a hard forearm to the face, which caused him to leave the game and head to the locker room.

    Advice: He is undergoing the concussion protocol in the locker room, so hopefully we'll know more very soon. He easily walked off under his own power and looked OK, but don't make any roster moves until we know more. He had three points (a trey) and two rebounds in seven minutes before heading for the locker room. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:00 pm
  • Brook Lopez is starting for the Nets Tuesday
    Brook Lopez, who got the day off on Sunday for rest, is starting for the Nets on Tuesday.

    Advice: He's good to go and should have a decent matchup against the Raptors tonight. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:29 pm
  • Gibson (ankle) out, Zipser likely to start
    Taj Gibson (sore left ankle) will miss Tuesday's matchup with the Mavs, and Paul Zipser is expected to get the start in his place.

    Advice: Zipser only saw 15 minutes of action in his previous start, so we wouldn't get too hyped up about him sticking in the starting five. Nikola Mirotic (illness) will be returning from a four-game absence today, and it'll likely be him and Doug McDermott splitting the majority of Gibson's minutes. Fred Hoiberg described Gibson's absence as precautionary and said it's unlikely that he'll need to undergo an MRI, so chances are he'll be able to return to the court for Friday's game in Atlanta. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:22 pm
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) ruled out for Tuesday
    Ryan Anderson (illness) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

    Advice: Corey Brewer will move into the starting five sans Anderson, with Trevor Ariza shifting over to the four-spot, and both James Harden and Eric Gordon will see an uptick to their respective usage rates. Tuesday will be the first game of a back-to-back set, so Anderson doesn't have much time to rest up for Wednesday's game against the Bucks. For now we'll be considering him questionable, and his owners will need to check back for another update closer to Wednesday's tip. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:04 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo (knee) questionable vs. NO
    Bismack Biyombo (right knee bruise) did not practice on Tuesday and is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Biyombo had a really nasty fall on Monday, and while he played through it, it looks like the injury swelled up on him on the flight over to New Orleans. If Biyombo can't give it a go on Wednesday night, Nikola Vucevic would likely see his minutes rise to the high-30s, and Aaron Gordon may be able to spend some more time at the four-spot. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:30 pm
  • Anthony Davis (hip, thumb) questionable Weds
    Anthony Davis (right hip, left thumb) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Advice: Davis hit the ground hard on Monday, and given that he tends to be a slow healer, we feel he's probably a bit closer to doubtful for Wednesday's game. If he's out, Terrence Jones would likely move back into the starting five, and there would be more minutes available for Donatas Motiejunas, while Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans would be tasked with more offensive responsibilities. Check back for another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:47 am
    GTD
     
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Tuesday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: This will be the third consecutive game Arthur has missed due to his latest knee pain. Kenneth Faried started and played a season-high 33 minutes on Monday. The Manimal will likely see extra minutes on Tuesday as well due to Arthur's absence. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:54 am
  • Noel (ankle) expects to play Wednesday
    Nerlens Noel (ankle) said he expects to play Wednesday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: "It's still a little sore, but I definitely should be able to go [Wednesday]," said Noel after practice on Tuesday. Noel had been playing well prior to injuring his ankle on Saturday, which forced him to sit out Monday's game. If Noel is available, coach Brett Brown will have a tough decision to make. Does he send Jahlil Okafor back to the bench to collect DNP-CD's, or limit Noel's minutes as the sole center on the second unit? Stay tuned... Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:49 am
  • HOU's backup center will be based on matchups
    Clint Capela (knee) will start for Houston going forward, but his backup will likely be based on matchups most nights, according to coach Mike D'Antoni.

    Advice: "Maybe the first guy off the bench will be a matchup consideration. Or if bulky centers give Clint a problem, I'll substitute early and get Nene in there. Or if we need energy today, maybe here comes Montrezl," said coach D'Antoni. Harrell averaged 14.6 points (on 68.3 percent shooting) and 4.9 rebounds in 27.4 minutes over the 14 games Capela missed due to his knee injury, but will obviously see a big hit to his playing time and production serving solely as a reserve. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:25 am
  • Ryan Anderson (illness) doubtful for Tuesday
    Ryan Anderson (illness) is listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

    Advice: After playing at least 32 minutes in each of the Rockets first seven games in January, Anderson's minutes have dipped a bit of late. He played just 25 minutes last Friday and then 23 on Sunday. As it turns out, it is because he has been fighting the flu for the last few days. If Anderson is unable to play on Tuesday, Corey Brewer, Sam Dekker, Montrezl Harrell and Trevor Ariza would likely divvy up his playing time. Clint Capela is also slated to return on Tuesday, so that will help fill the frontcourt void left by Anderson. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:40 am
  • Clint Capela (knee) will start Tuesday night
    Clint Capela (knee) will return to the starting lineup Tuesday night in Miami, but will "probably" play fewer than 20 minutes.

    Advice: Capela will return after missing 15 games. Coach Mike D'Antoni indicated that there will not be a minutes cap in place, but did say: "His condition being what it is, we'll keep him under 20 minutes, probably." Capela was averaging 24.5 minutes per game over Houston's first 28 games this season. Montrezl Harrell had played relatively well in Capela absence, but will now get bumped back to the bench. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:28 am
  • Clint Capela (knee) expected to play Tuesday
    Clint Capela (knee) is expected to make his return to the lineup on Tuesday vs. Miami.

    Advice: "I've been doing pretty good in the workouts by myself, sprinting, dunking. It all felt good," Capela said. He had been playing the best basketball of his career prior to the injury, which was initially projected to cost him 4-6 weeks. He is averaging 11.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks - all career-highs. Make sure he is not floating around your league's waiver wire, as he was returning mid-round value over the first two months of the season. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:00 am
  • Jokic leads offensive revival in Denver
    The Nuggets have been one of the NBA's most efficient and effective offenses since sticking with Nikola Jokic as the team's starting center.

    Advice: Over the last month, the Nuggets are top-10 in the league in field goals made, field goal accuracy, 3-point accuracy, 3-point field goals made. Jokic has been the centerpiece of the offense, and the engine driving them forward. Over his last 14 games, Jokic is averaging 19.2 points, 9.1 rebounds and 5.4 assists. He's been top-15 overall fantasy producer over this stretch. The sky is the limit for this kid over the second half of the season Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:31 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee): Tuesday status unknown
    The availability of Darrell Arthur (knee) for Tuesday’s game at the L.A. Lakers is unknown.

    Advice: Arthur missed his second consecutive game due to left knee soreness on Monday. He has missed a total of 10 games this season as a result of knee issues. "He only knows one speed," coach Mike Malone said. "When we (practice) hard he goes hardest. And his knee has a hard time withstanding that pounding. So I almost have to try to protect him from himself at times." Kenneth Faried played a season-high 33 minutes on Monday and would get a boost on Tuesday if Arthur is out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:09 am
  • Jordan scores 19 w/ 15 boards, 4 blocks
    DeAndre Jordan scored 19 points with 15 rebounds, two assists, two steals and four blocks in Monday's win over the Thunder.

    Advice: He was coming off a monster 24-point game with 21 rebounds and two blocks on Saturday, so it's not a surprise that he demolished a Thunder frontcourt that was missing Steven Adams (concussion). He finished 7-of-8 from the field and a respectable 5-of-8 from the line in 30 minutes. Jordan has recorded 20+ rebounds four times through seven January games, but he will have his hands full on Thursday vs. the Wolves. In their previous meeting on Nov. 12, Jordan posted 18 points, 16 rebounds and a pair of blocks of steals. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:06 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo scores season-high 15 points
    Bismack Biyombo took a nasty spill on Monday in Orlando's loss to Denver, but still managed to surprisingly score a season-high 15 points (on 7-of-9 shooting) and grab nine rebounds in 20 minutes of action.

    Advice: Biyombo had not scored more than 10 points since early December, so this was offensive outburst wasn't expected, especially after a scary fall in which it appeared his leg bent the wrong way. Nonetheless, Orlando has shifted towards a small-ball approach, which has capped Biz's fantasy upside significantly. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:24 pm
  • Nikola Jokic pours in career-high 30 points
    Nikola Jokic was unstoppable in the Nuggets blowout victory over Orlando Monday night, scoring a career-high 30 points to go along with 11 rebounds, five assists, three steals and a 3-pointer.

    Advice: Jokic joins Carmelo Anthony as just the second Nugget to tally at least 30 points, 10 boards, five assists and three steals in a single game over the last 25 years. However, this performance isn't a complete surprise because, despite playing through a nagging wrist injury that may require offseason surgery, Jokic has been an absolute beast of late. He is now averaging 21.6 points, 9.5 rebounds and 6.3 assists over the Nuggets last seven games. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:32 pm
  • Myles Turner scores 18 w/ four blocks
    Myles Turner scored 18 points with 12 rebounds, four blocks and one assist in Monday's win over the Pelicans.

    Advice: Turner held his own against Anthony Davis and turned in one of the best lines of the night so far, but he did shoot just 7-of-17 from the field and 3-of-6 from the line. Turner was shooting 80.9 percent from the line prior to Monday, so cut him some slack this time around. This was Turner's third game of the season with 18+ points, 12+ rebounds and 4+ blocks, second to only Anthony Davis (6) and Hassan Whiteside (5). Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:26 pm
  • John Henson plays 26 minutes in loss
    John Henson played 26 minutes on Monday vs. the 76ers, scoring eight points on 3-of-8 shooting.

    Advice: The Bucks needed his defense against the one they call The Process, so he reached 26 minutes for the just the second time in over a month. Henson did a respectable job and grabbed five rebounds with four assists and two blocks, but we'll need to see him do this a couple times in a row before recommending an add in standard leagues. Greg Monroe still looks like the center you want to own. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:49 pm
  • Clint Capela (knee) feeling good in workouts
    Clint Capela (knee) said that he's been sprinting and dunking during recent workouts, and it all felt good.

    Advice: Capela has been out of commission since Dec. 17, but he could return to the court for Tuesday's game against the Heat. The Rockets will make an official determination on his status following Tuesday morning's shootaround, but he's close enough to a return that he should be stashed in most leagues. He'll likely be eased back into things after the lengthy layoff, but once he's fully up to speed, Montrezl Harrell will lose most of his value. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:42 pm
  • Anthony Davis (hip, thumb) doubtful to return
    Anthony Davis (right hip, left thumb) is doubtful to return to Monday's game against the Pacers.

    Advice: The good news here is that the X-rays taken on his thumb and hip both came back negative, so it appears AD has avoided a serious injury. He was barely able to walk to the locker room, so it would be quite shocking to see him return to the game today. He'll end his evening with 16 points, three rebounds and three assists. Terrence Jones is going to be the primary beneficiary if Davis is forced to miss any additional time, so he's a solid pickup in any setting. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:12 pm
    GTD
     
  • Anthony Davis (back) heads to the locker room
    Anthony Davis (tailbone) is headed to the locker room.

    Advice: Davis tried to posterize Myles Turner on a dunk attempt, but Turner did not let that happen, and Davis hit the floor hard. He was writhing in pain on the ground for roughly a minute, and while he stayed in the game to knock down his free throws, he went straight back to the locker room after knocking them down. Davis was barely able to walk on his way back to the locker room, so it seems unlikely he'll be able to return to this one. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:38 pm

  • Paul Millsap scores 17 in full line
    Paul Millsap scored 17 points during a big 108-107 win over the Knicks on Monday, adding seven rebounds, six assists, three steals, three blocks and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: He had a game-sealing block of Derrick Rose to get this win. Millsap didn't shoot the ball well in this game, making just 5-of-18 from the field and 6-of-10 from the line in 39 minutes. Dwight Howard (rest) did not play, which has been a helpful scenario for Millsap all season. The Hawks are also winning games and have gone 9-1 in their last 10, so maybe he stays put. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:43 pm
  • Nerlens Noel (ankle) out Monday vs. MIL
    Nerlens Noel (sprained left ankle) will not play Monday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: He did sprain it on Saturday and was able to return, so for now we'll be considering him questionable for Wednesday's game against Toronto. With Noel on the sidelines, Jahlil Okafor will serve as Joel Embiid's primary backup, but he'll likely be working with a 20-minute workload making him an unattractive target in most settings. Noel should remain owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:30 pm
  • Ivica Zubac quiet vs. Pistons on Sunday
    Lakers' center Ivica Zubac finished Sunday's home loss to the Pistons with four points, five boards, two blocks and one assist in nine minutes.

    Advice: The Lakers intend to get 19-year-old Zubac more minutes as the season continues. Lakers coach Luke Walton said the staff is "making an effort to get Zubac more minutes ... He's been working hard and playing well in practices." He's an interesting rest-of-season option, but doesn't have much appeal for owners who need immediate value. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:57 pm
  • Zach Randolph posts 16 & 15 in win vs Chicago
    Zach Randolph grabbed eight of his 16 rebounds on the offensive end vs. Chicago on Sunday, adding 15 points, two assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: In the process, Randolph passed Chris Webber for 88th on the NBA's all-time scoring list -- after Sunday's game he has 17,188 points in his career. He was awful to start tonight's game, but the veteran's newfound bench role hasn't prevented him from posting mid-round value over the Grizzlies' past 15 games. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:15 pm
  • Justin Hamilton swats career-high three shots
    Justin Hamilton started vs. the Rockets on Wednesday, posting a career-high three blocks with 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting, three boards and two assists in just 18 minutes.

    Advice: Brook Lopez was resting tonight and this highlights Hamilton's potential role should the Nets trade Lopez this season, even though his minutes were depressed due to the Rockets' small-ball attack, as well as the lopsided score. The Nets would likely get back draft picks and/or prospects if they dealt Lopez, rather than current rotation players, which might leave Hamilton as the default starting center. That's purely speculative at the moment, but he's worth keeping in the back of your mind -- just don't expect copious swats, as tonight's fluky total all came in the first quarter.

  • Montrezl Harrell gets 16 & 7 in start Sunday
    Montrezl Harrell logged 34 minutes as a starter on Sunday, making 6-of-9 FGs and 4-of-6 FTs to finish with 16 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks.

    Advice: The bad news is that Clint Capela is nearing a return from his fractured fibula, and could play as soon as Tuesday's road game in Miami. Harrell has carved out a reliable spot in the rotation, but he's averaging just 16.2 minutes off the bench, as opposed to 26.6 minutes as a starter. The clock is ticking, though he's worth owning until we see how the rotation shakes out with Capela active. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:05 pm
  • Nikola Jokic still dealing w/ left wrist pain
    Nikola Jokic still doesn't have full range of motion in his left wrist, he continues to play through pain, and it's possible that he will need surgery after the season.

    Advice: Jokic shed his wrist brace for Thursday's game and plans to play without it again on Monday, and the good news is that there's no suggestion of more DNPs. "I cannot go to push-up position," Jokic said. "[Doctors] said they could [perform surgery], but it wasn’t 100 percent that it would feel better." This isn't a comforting update for Jokic's owners, but he's been on fire lately and all signs point to him playing through his discomfort for the rest of the season. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:17 pm
  • Dirk Nowitzki scores 17 points with 3 blocks
    Dirk Nowitzki scored 17 points on 7-of-14 shooting Sunday, to go with six rebounds, three 3-pointers, two assists, three blocks and one turnover in 28 minutes.

    Advice: The blocks were a season-high, and this was his second multi-block performance of the season. Not typically known as a rim defender, Nowitzki joked after the game that "those kids better learn," in reference to swatting away one of Zach LaVine's layup attempts. Nowitzki has worked his way into the mid-round equation over the past few weeks, but as a likely post-break shutdown candidate, his owners should be looking to sell high. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:30 pm
  • Justin Hamilton will start Sunday vs. Houston
    Justin Hamilton will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockets, with Brook Lopez (rest) unavailable.

    Advice: Hamilton has been hit-or-miss in his three starts this season, owning averages of just 5.7 points, 4.0 boards, 1.0 steal, 1.0 block and 1.0 triple on 31.6 percent shooting over 23.3 minutes per game, so he's not much more than a punt play in daily leagues. Head coach Kenny Atkinson also said that Luis Scola and Quincy Acy will get some minutes with Lopez out, but neither of those guys can be considered viable targets in most settings. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:23 pm
  • Brook Lopez (rest) won't play Sunday vs. HOU
    Brook Lopez (rest) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Rockets.

    Advice: Head coach Kenny Atkinson said that the Nets having played six games in nine nights, including a Thursday-Friday back-to-back set is the reason why he's resting Lopez today. Justin Hamilton will start tonight sans Lopez, so he's on the radar as a potential streamer or DFS punt play. Sean Kilpatrick and Bojan Bogdanvoic will likely be doing the heavy lifting on the offensive end, and Caris LeVert could see some increased opportunity with the second unit. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:41 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) out Monday vs. Magic
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Magic.

    Advice: It's always something with this guy, and Monday will mark his second straight game on the sidelines. Kenneth Faried and Jusuf Nurkic will likely split his limited minutes, which doesn't mean all that much. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:48 am
  • Clint Capela (leg) could return on Tuesday
    Clint Capela (leg) could return on Tuesday vs. the Heat or Wednesday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: He has missed about one month of action, but the big man is scheduled to go through practice on Monday. It's fair to assume that Capela will have restrictions right out of the gate, but he shouldn't be sitting on your waiver wire with season averages of 11.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. Montrezl Harrell is now a drop candidate in most leagues, while Nene loses a lot of value as well. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:11 am
  • Jared Sullinger won't set a return date
    Jared Sullinger (foot) said he won't set a return date despite being cleared for practice.

    Advice: "My main focus is just trying to get my legs back under me," Sullinger said. "I feel like everybody else is in tip-top shape and I’m just lagging. I can’t keep up with [Jakob Poeltl] off the dribble, so, I got a lot of work to do." He added that he has "no lungs" right now, so it's going to take him a while to get into shape. Sully is going to be limited right out of the gate, so he's more of a stash in deeper leagues for now. He will eventually be the starting power forward. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:19 am
  • Bismack Biyombo plays 15 minutes vs. Jazz
    Bismack Biyombo missed all of his field goal attempts, scoring four points on 4-of-4 free throws, with four rebounds and one block in 15 minutes against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: It is very clear that going big is not an option for the Magic, as it has been an inefficient strategy. Plus, this is one of the best matchup for it, so it looks even worse for Biz. This has been a rough month for Biyombo, who averaged 20.1 minutes, 4.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in January heading into this game. With Orlando going smaller, Biyombo appears to be the odd man out for the Magic and is a drop candidate unless you're in dire strait for blocks. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:41 pm
  • Nerlens Noel gets into some foul trouble
    Nerlens Noel was in some foul trouble against the Wizards on Saturday, finishing with six points, 12 rebounds and three turnovers in 13 minutes.

    Advice: He also sprained his left ankle and did return after he was re-taped. Obviously this was a letdown with Joel Embiid (rest) not playing, but it's not likely to affect his playing time because the 76ers won five of their last six, assuming he's healthy. He should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:45 pm
  • Taj Gibson plays great vs. Pelicans
    Taj Gibson played 32 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday with 15 points, 16 rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

    Advice: With Nikola Mirotic (illness) out and the Bulls having a lead, Gibson got all he could eat in this game. He also did attempt two threes, which he missed, of course. Gibson should have a big opportunity again on Sunday with Mirotic out and going against a big team in the Grizzlies. He's a low-end big in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:29 pm
  • DeAndre Jordan drops 24 & 21 with 9 dunks
    DeAndre Jordan put on a dunking highlight reel against the Lakers on Saturday, making 12-of-13 from the field for 24 points with 21 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 35 minutes.

    Advice: If you liked dunks, this was the game for you. DJ dunked the ball an incredible nine times in this win with several beautiful lobs from Chris Paul. This was Jordan's seventh game with a 20/20 as a Clipper, which ties Elton Brand for the most in franchise history. It was also his 37th 20-plus board game to pass Kevin Garnett for the ninth most since 1983-84. He has the lob and rebounding things down pat. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:34 pm
  • Noel playing well with Sixers second unit
    Nerlens Noel has found his groove as a key contributor on the Sixers consistent and productive second unit.

    Advice: Over the Sixers last seven games, Noel is averaging 10.1 points (on 63.3 percent shooting), 4.3 rebounds, 1.4 steals, 1.1 blocks and 0.6 turnovers. The combo of Noel backing Joel Embiid has worked well for Philly, who have won five of their last six games. The loser in the scenario is Jahlil Okafor, who continues to be slapped with DNP-CD's. Noel has made his case as 'roster worthy' in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:40 am
  • Zach Randolph scores 16 points
    Zach Randolph scored 16 points with 12 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer against the Rockets on Friday.

    Advice: Even with the Grizzlies going big, they still kept the Rockets in check from deep in the second half. Randolph posted his ninth double-double on the season in this game and was especially important in the second half, scoring 14 points after the break. Randolph is starting to flirt with mid-round value lately, which probably means it's time to sell high. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:36 pm
  • Paul Millsap scores 23 in full line
    Paul Millsap scored 23 points in 40 minutes during a tough 103-101 loss to the Celtics on Friday, adding five rebounds, six assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: The Hawks reportedly told Millsap he's off the block, which is fantastic news for his fantasy value. He's also turned into that stat-stuffing monster we've grown accustom to love, averaging 17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 1.0 blocks, 2.0 steals and 0.8 treys in his last five. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:50 pm
  • Bebe blocks four shots in win
    Lucas Nogueira scored 10 points with nine rebounds, two assists and four blocks in 30 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: He has been great when teams attack him as a weak-side helper and with his 2.0 blocks per game in just 26.4 minutes per game over his last five. For what it's worth, the Nogueira and Jonas Valanciunas lineup didn't even work today in this blowout win with a -6.9 net rating in 12 minutes, and it's only a so-so +2.2 in their last 15 games -- used in seven games in that span. Bebe should still be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:21 pm
  • Brook Lopez scores 20 in a loss at TOR
    Brook Lopez scored 20 points with three rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and one turnover in 29 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

    Advice: He wasn't happy with how the Nets blew a lead on Thursday and maybe that's why he played so much in a road game tonight. The Nets are plummeting in the standings with a nine-game losing streak, so the likelihood of a Brook shutdown in April is growing by the day. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:42 pm
  • Nerlens Noel blocks four in 20 minutes
    Nerlens Noel blocked a season-high four shots against the Hornets on Friday, adding six points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes.

    Advice: His jumper has actually been a story this season with another made J at the top of the key during this one. Noel is running the floor really well and his defense hasn't been too much of a drop off from Joel Embiid -- Jahlil Okafor's certainly was. As long as Embiid is limited to 28 minutes, Noel should have minutes close to 20, which should be enough value to use in standard leagues. There could be more minutes for Noel on Saturday with Embiid out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:55 pm
  • Lucas Nogueira getting the start at PF
    Lucas Nogueira is getting the start at power forward against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: Going with Bebe against the NBA's fastest team is an interesting move, so we'll see how it works for the Raptors. He's made two previous starts at PF, averaging 6.5 points, 7.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.5 blocks and 1.5 steals. He's worth owning in standard leagues right now. Rotoworld.com Friday, 4:13 pm
  • Harris, Bojan, Booker & Lopez are starting
    Spencer Dinwiddie, Joe Harris, Bojan Bogdanovic, Trevor Booker and Brook Lopez will start against the Raptors on Friday.

    Advice: The Nets are not resting their starters in a road back-to-back game, but there is a very good chance their minutes are held in check. Go ahead and start Brook in season long leagues, but he's a little risky in DFS. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:29 pm
  • Jared Sullinger cleared for practice
    Jared Sullinger (foot) has been cleared for practice.

    Advice: This is a huge step in his recovery. Sullinger is starting to get shots up and now it looks like he can take on more contact. The Raptors have essentially jettisoned Pascal Siakam in the rotation, so the starting spot is Sullinger's to lose once he can play in games. That said, there won't be much usage available for him, he doesn't block shots and his minutes will be managed for a long time, so he's only a pickup in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:09 pm
  • Noel 'definitely satisfied' w/ role on Sixers
    Nerlens Noel has settled into his role as Joel Embiid's primary backup, and has played his best basketball of the season.

    Advice: "At this moment in time, I'm definitely satisfied with where I'm at and the team's rotation," Noel said. Over the Sixers last six games, Noel is averaging 10.8 points (on 60 percent shooting) 4.6 rebounds and 1.5 steals in 20.5 minutes. Meanwhile, Jahlil Okafor has been a DNP-CD in four of the Sixers last five contests. Noel possesses intriguing, especially considering the Sixers are actively trying to trade a big man to clear up the logjam in the frontcourt. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:27 am
  • Nikola Jokic returned to action on Thursday January 12. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:37 am
  • Dirk Nowitzki getting hot for Mavs
    Dirk Nowitzki hit 7-of-15 shots and three 3-pointers for 18 points, six rebounds and a block in 30 minutes of Thursday's 113-108 win over the Suns.

    Advice: After scoring 13 or fewer points in six straight games, Dirk has looked like his old self in the last two, averaging 22 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 4.0 3-pointers on 15-of-31 shooting. The Mavs don't have a back-to-back set until Jan. 25-26, so it's possible that Dirk could play in the next five games, at least. If he's somehow not owned in your league, it's time to move on him. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:32 pm
  • Ivica Zubac scores eight points
    Ivica Zubac scored a career-high eight points with four rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals in 15 minutes against the Spurs.

    Advice: As you could imagine, it was a garbage-time special. The Lakers like him as a potential long-term rotation piece for his array of skills, including a nice shooting touch. He's only a stash in super deep leagues, of course. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:26 pm
  • Alexis Ajinca doesn't score
    Alexis Ajinca did not score in three minutes on Thursday with one rebound and one steal.

    Advice: He checked during the first half, looked awful for three minutes, and never came back in. Ajinca sure does know how to get into coach Alvin Gentry's doghouse. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:37 pm
  • Taj Gibson quiet in loss to Knicks
    Taj Gibson played just 25 minutes and had 12 points, nine rebounds and zero blocks in Thursday's 104-89 loss to the Knicks.

    Advice: We were hoping for a little more with Nikola Mirotic and Jimmy Butler out, but Fred Hoiberg rolled with his bench for most of the fourth quarter, as Gibson, Robin Lopez, and especially Michael Carter-Williams all saw their minutes limited tonight. Gibson is still worth owning as a low-end power forward option and is averaging 11.4 points and 8.2 rebounds over his last five games. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:35 pm
  • Brook Lopez scores 20 in a loss
    Brook Lopez scored 20 points with six rebounds, three assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday.

    Advice: He's been extremely consistent with at least 20 points in each of his last three. That said, there is a very good chance Lopez gets the night off in Toronto for the road game in a back-to-back set on Friday. If that' the case, Justin Hamilton would benefit most while Luis Scola would help out. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:26 pm
  • Nikola Jokic dominates in win over Pacers
    Nikola Jokic put on another one of his clinics in London during a 140-112 win over the Pacers on Thursday, scoring 22 points with 10 rebounds, seven assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He continues to sizzle as a passer with plenty of highlight-reel dimes and also has at least five in four straight. What really has made Jokic elite lately has been his remarkable 72.3 true shooting percentage in his last 13. He's posted a MVP Curry-like 64.8 effective field goal percentage on his 64 jumpers in that span to go with an ridiculous 71.9 percent on his shots from within eight feet. In Nikola we trust. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:58 pm
  • Darrell Arthur will not play on Thursday
    Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: The Nuggets are somewhat healthy besides Arthur, so he wasn't a lock to be in the rotation anyway. Kenneth Faried could see some minutes at power forward tonight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:30 am
  • Darrell Arthur (leg) questionable Thursday
    Darrell Arthur (leg) is questionable for Thursday's game for the Pacers.

    Advice: Of course he is. Nikola Jokic is returning from an illness anyways, so Arthur will be irrelevant in most fantasy leagues with his move back to the bench. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:42 am
  • Clint Capela (leg) says he feels good
    Clint Capela (leg) said he's feeling good and he remains on pace to return in the next week or two.

    Advice: "My legs feel good. My quickness, I can run, stuff like that," Capela said. "Right now, I just take it day-after-day working out. I'm on schedule for four-to-six weeks (original timetable), like they said before. My workout is getting better, really better." As long as you're OK with his 44.6 percent shooting from the free throw line, Capela is worth stashing after averaging 11.8 points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks before going down. Montrezl Harrell will lose most of his value when Capela is cleared. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:48 am
  • DeAndre Jordan grabs 20 boards in home win
    DeAndre Jordan helped the Clippers earn their fifth straight victory on Wednesday, racking up 20 rebounds to go along with 10 points, three blocks, two steals and one assist.

    Advice: Jordan has been getting tips from Kevin Garnett, who is serving as a Clippers' team consultant. "Any pointers he can give me and tips are great," Jordan said. "I just want to be a student whenever he’s here." Jordan already has an NBA-leading six games with 20+ boards this season, and tonight's game moved him past Shaq into a tie for the ninth-most 20+ rebound games in NBA history. He's tied with none other than Kevin Garnett. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:27 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo logs 16 minutes off bench
    Bismack Biyombo came off Orlando's bench on Wednesday with four points, two rebounds, one steal and one block in 16 minutes.

    Advice: The Magic offense wasn't a big issue tonight, but their usually stalwart defense wasn't up to the task in the 105-96 road loss (103.6 defensive rating). Biyombo has been a poor fantasy option all season, helping owners with boards and blocks, while dragging them down almost everywhere else. It doesn't matter much whether he's starting or coming off the bench. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:01 pm
  • Montrezl Harrell starts, logs 20 minutes
    Montrezl Harrell earned another start vs. the Wolves on Wednesday, chipping in nine points (2-of-4 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), five boards, two assists and one steal in 20 minutes.

    Advice: Since Clint Capela's first DNP on Dec. 20, Harrell has averaged 14.8 points on 69.5 percent shooting, 4.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 blocks and 0.4 steals. The limited minutes tonight were due to foul trouble and he's worth deploying for now, despite the constant threat from Nene (nine points in 15 minutes). Just keep in mind that Capela is progressing well and could return in late January. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:01 pm
  • Zach Randolph scores 14 points against OKC
    Zach Randolph scored 14 points with nine rebounds, one assist and four turnovers in 27 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: With those Z-bounds, he moved ahead of A.C. Green for 44th on the all-time list for rebounds. Randolph has obviously lost a step and his screen game has fallen off lately. He's still worth a look in standard leagues, but his upside isn't the greatest. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:14 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo moving to the bench
    Bismack Biyombo will move to the bench against the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: It is likely only because of Serge Ibaka (shoulder) not playing and the starting unit needing more offense with Nikola Vucevic. Biyombo actually gains value because he should play huge minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:56 pm
  • Alexis Ajinca would welcome a trade or buyout
    Alexis Ajinca told French publication L'Equipe that he would welcome a trade or buyout from the Pelicans.

    Advice: Ajinca has fallen out of the rotation in New Orleans, and there's no reason to believe head coach Alvin Gentry will suddenly reverse course on this move. Here are his words, per Google translate: "The solution, it would be a trade, after if the club wants to make a buyout, we will see what they ask but normally it would be an exchange." Ajinca is unlikely to have much value, regardless of where he winds up. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:06 am
