  • Danilo Gallinari (knee) questionable vs. Indy
    Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday against the Pacers.

    Advice: He's missed the last four games, but Gallinari at least had a chance to play on Wednesday. If Gallinari does make it back, coach Mike Malone will have a tough time getting everyone minutes. Wilson Chandler played mostly SF on Wednesday, which allowed Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee to hold down the minutes at the four. Gallo's return would also take minutes from Will Barton.

  • Kevin Durant does some 5-on-0
    Kevin Durant (knee) went through some 5-on-0 drills at practice on Thursday.

    Advice: He was wearing a knee brace for some of his shooting drills and there is no word of him taking on contact yet. On Wednesday, ESPN reported Durant could be back for part of the regular season, so the news today coincides with that. KD is likely going to travel with the team and could be re-evaulated next week. If you can afford to stash KD, it makes some sense. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:31 pm

  • Alan Williams (illness) expects to play
    Alan Williams (illness) is expecting to play on Thursday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Williams was on the active list on Tuesday vs. the Heat, but left the team right before tip-off because he was dealing with some food poisoning. If he looks good during pre-game warmups, expect him to be out there tonight. If not, Alex Len will have a heavy workload at center and Marquese Chriss will have to play some five as well. Through 10 games in March, Williams is averaging a double-double with 13.1 points, 10.5 rebounds and 1.2 blocks. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:07 am
  • Tyler Zeller's role with Celtics is fluid
    Celtics coach Brad Stevens said he's been looking to give Tyler Zeller "some reps."

    Advice: "Because I think if you look at all the different teams that we may play [in the playoffs], there's a good amount of size," Stevens said on Wednesday. "And, you know, he's played against those guys in a lot of scenarios and done pretty well. And he's been ready and he came in and boosted us again tonight." While Zeller is back in the rotation for now, he's only played a combined 16 minutes in his last two games and Stevens hinted that he's going to tweak his rotations based on the matchups. That means he could be a DNP-CD on any given night. There's no fantasy appeal here. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:18 am
  • Paul Millsap (knee) ruled out for Friday
    Paul Millsap (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: This will be his fourth game in a row on the shelf and it's not a good sign that he isn't traveling with the team. Atlanta's next game is on Sunday vs. the 14-56 Nets, so his owners are in a tough spot. With Millsap out, Ersan Ilyasova is worth streaming if you need a bump in points, rebounds and triples.

  • Al Horford's value is trending up
    Celtics coach Brad Stevens hinted that he will keep staggering the playing time for Al Horford and Isaiah Thomas.

    Advice: Horford played only 2.4 minutes per game without Thomas during the final nine games before the break, but since then that average has gone up to double digits. "We still run the same offense, all the same concepts," Horford said. "I think that I may post a little more with the second unit, and guys will look to play off of me, and just create plays that way." Horford's value has been trending up quickly since this rotation tweak and Stevens deserves a lot of credit for maximizing the big man's talent. He's averaging 18.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 1.8 blocks, 0.8 steals and 0.8 triples over his last five games, so he's peaking at the perfect time for fantasy owners.

  • Mavericks were cautious with Noel in blowout
    Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said Nerlens Noel only played 17 minutes vs. the Warriors on Tuesday due to the blowout.

    Advice: "[Noel] did a lot of good things [Tuesday] night, but I’m not going to play a guy coming off a sore knee meaningless minutes in a blowout," Carlisle said. "So if you’re asking for garbage minutes, that ain’t gonna happen." Carlisle added that Noel's knee is "doing really well," and it's worth noting that he should be looking at a nice workload on Thursday vs. DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers. He's averaging 9.5 points and 7.1 rebounds and 22.5 minutes through 10 games with the Mavs, but he should start trending up soon. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:25 am
  • Boris Diaw starts, but plays just 14 minutes
    Boris Diaw drew the start on Wednesday in place of Joe Johnson, but finished with just five points, one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Diaw played 14 minutes and this is a predictably quiet return -- he's averaging 15.5 minutes off the bench this season, and that only goes up to 21.2 minutes as a starter. There's no reason to touch him in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:01 pm
  • Kristaps Porzingis scores team-high 24 points
    Kristaps Porzingis started at center on Wednesday and scored a team-high 24 points (8-of-17 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs) with three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, one steal, one block and zero turnovers.

    Advice: It was an interesting move from New York, but Porzingis barely avoided fouling out (thanks to multiple fouls attributed to other players), and Rudy Gobert destroyed the Knicks with 35 points on 13-of-14 shooting. Porzingis' recent Achilles injury hasn't been an issue since his return, which is the key for fantasy owners, and he's going to get his stats whether he's starting at center or power forward. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:53 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 32 points in win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points in a 116-98 win at Sacramento on Wednesday, adding 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

    Advice: It's just the second time this month he's hit the 30-point mark, and Antetokounmpo scored at least 20 points in just two of his previous six games. The Bucks finally had their six-game road trip end and they'll be heading back home this weekend. Antetokounmpo is much better at home with a 54.0 field goal percentage with better averages in points, boards, steals, blocks and threes at home compared to being on the road. After a down couple weeks, Giannis should go back to being a top-three guy going forward. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:24 pm

  • Thon Maker scores four points
    Thon Maker scored four points with three rebounds in 12 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Even with John Henson (thumb) not playing, Maker still couldn't get additional playing time. He's not going to play enough to have value in most fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:16 pm
  • Spencer Hawes scores 10 points
    Spencer Hawes scored 10 points with three rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: He stepped into John Henson's (thumb) role as the backup big man. Hawes could get a couple more games in the rotation, but he's still not someone fantasy owners should be turning to because of how coach Jason Kidd plays the matchups. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:13 pm
  • Skal Labissiere scores eight points
    Skal Labissiere scored eight points in the starting lineup against the Bucks on Wednesday, adding eight rebounds, one assist and two steals in 31 minutes during a 116-98 loss.

    Advice: With Kosta Koufos resting, Labissiere was able to make his third NBA start. In his previous two, he only averaged 10.5 points, 6.0 boards, 2.5 blocks and 0.5 steals in just 17.5 minutes. He is clearly earning more run and the Kings will continue to rest players to allow Skal to play more. He's worth a long look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:08 pm
  • John Henson (thumb) to be re-evaluated on Wed
    John Henson (left thumb sprain) will be re-evaluated when the Bucks return to Milwaukee.

    Advice: Henson got hurt in Portland and he sat out Wednesday's game. Owners should consider him questionable to play vs. the visiting Hawks on Friday -- if he can't suit up, Spencer Hawes looks like the biggest winner after scoring 10 points in 18 minutes on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Kenneth Faried scores 17 points on 8-of-15 FG
    Kenneth Faried came off the bench on Wednesday for 17 points on 8-of-15 shooting, nine rebounds, two steals and one assist in 19 minutes vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Faried was on a strict 20-minute limit as the Nuggets try to preserve his troublesome back, which cost him nearly a month before returning last Thursday. He was great tonight, but with his minutes down and the Nikola Jokic/Mason Plumlee frontcourt playing well, there's no reason to expect much from Faried down the stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Juan Hernangomez quiet off bench Wednesday
    Juan Hernangomez moved to the bench vs. the Cavaliers, finishing Wednesday's home win with four points, four rebounds, one assist and one block in 12 minutes.

    Advice: Wilson Chandler (groin) was back in action tonight, which bumped Denver's promising young forward to the second unit. In eight starts this year he's averaging 11.6 points, 1.8 threes, 6.0 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.5 blocks, but his numbers take a big hit coming off the bench. If you're holding him, just remember that his role will be threatened even more once Danilo Gallinari (knee) gets back on the court. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Jerami Grant scores three points
    Jerami Grant scored three points with three rebounds and two assists against the 76ers on Wednesday.

    Advice: No revenge game for Grant here. Before this game, coach Billy Donovan joked that he wished coach Brett Brown did a better job with Grant, but Donovan also added Grant has to refine his offensive game. With OKC fairly healthy, Grant doesn't have much value in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:02 pm
  • Wilson Chandler (groin) plays 41 minutes
    Wilson Chandler (groin) returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday, making 8-of-14 shots to score 18 points with one 3-pointer, five boards, three assists and one steal.

    Advice: Chandler had missed the past four games, but he sure didn't appear rusty while playing a game-high 41 minutes tonight. He was slumping offensively prior to the injury, and it looks like the extended rest could lead to renewed efficiency over Denver's final 11 games. Make sure he's not floating on your waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Kevin Love plays 22 minutes in ugly defeat
    Kevin Love played only 22 minutes during Wednesday's game, posting nine points, three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two steals and one block.

    Advice: The Cavs' starters were crushed to begin the game and coach Ty Lue relied on his bench heavily tonight, to Love's detriment. He still managed to post a decent fantasy line, however, and at least he'll be well-rested for Friday's road game. The loss also makes it less likely that Cleveland will rest their key guys, as Boston is now just one game back for the No. 1 seed. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm

  • Richaun Holmes has disappointing game
    Richaun Holmes scored 11 points with two rebounds and five fouls in 16 minutes off the bench during a 122-97 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: It's a big-time letdown for Holmes after blowing up for 24 points and 14 boards on Monday. Holmes did get in foul trouble during this game and Shawn Long was in the mix for 15 minutes due to some garbage time. Jahlil Okafor also got the start today, but he probably won't be holding that job for very long. Holmes should remain owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:51 pm
  • Al Horford puts up another strong line
    Al Horford scored 15 points with eight rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

    Advice: Maybe Isaiah Thomas missing time has helped Horford get back on track. In his last five games, Horford averaged 18.4 points, 8.4 boards, 6.2 assists, 1.8 blocks, 0.8 steals and 0.8 treys -- Thomas did not play in two of those. Horford's fantasy owners can probably start expecting early-round value going forward after a very quiet February. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:20 pm

  • Collison, Hield, Afflalo, Skal & WCS starting
    Darren Collison, Buddy Hield, Arron Afflalo, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein are starting against the Bucks on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Kings are resting Kosta Koufos, so Skal should be getting some good minutes in the first unit. The Kings should also roll with Georgios Papagiannis off the bench. Skal is worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:30 pm
  • Boris Diaw starting; Joe Johnson to bench
    Boris Diaw will start at power forward and Joe Johnson will move to the bench.

    Advice: The Jazz will go with their bigger lineup with Kristaps Porzingis starting for the Knicks. Diaw is likely just going to play minutes in the teens, so he's not someone fantasy owners should be counting on tonight. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:03 pm
  • John Henson (thumb) ruled out Wednesday
    John Henson (left thumb sprain) will not play vs. the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Greg Monroe stands to gain some minutes in Henson's absence, with Thon Maker and Mirza Teletovic also in the equation. It's possible that we'll even see Spencer Hawes or Terrence Jones crack the rotation. Henson is day-to-day so this doesn't have significant long-term implications. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:13 pm
  • Juan Hernangomez will come off the bench
    Juan Hernangomez will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    Advice: Wilson Chandler (groin) will be getting the start at the three-spot tonight to matchup with LeBron James, and with Darrell Arthur (knee) also set to return to action, Hernangomez' minutes could take a decent sized hit. He's not the best option tonight with a tough matchup and a return to the second unit. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:44 pm
  • Richaun Holmes to bench w/ Okafor starting
    Richaun Holmes will come off the bench on Wednesday with Jahlil Okafor (knee) starting.

    Advice: Holmes won't approach the 42 minutes he saw on Tuesday, but he should still get more than enough run to benefit fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:41 pm
  • Wilson Chandler (groin) will play vs. Cavs
    Wilson Chandler (groin) will play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He needed almost two weeks to recover from a groin contusion. Chandler has dealt with a lot of groin injuries in his career, so the Nuggets could ease him back into his role. It'll be interesting to see where he fits in with coach Mike Malone liking the Mason Plumlee starting lineup. Chandler is worth owning, but his upside is capped. Kenneth Faried may also lose minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:25 pm
  • Hawks will make decision on Millsap Thursday
    Head coach Mike Budenholzer said that Atlanta will make a decision as to whether Paul Millsap (knee) will join the team in Milwaukee for Friday's game on Thursday morning.

    Advice: Budenholzer hinted on Monday that Millsap's absence could extend beyond two games (Monday and Wednesday), so we'll have to wait for the next official update on Thursday morning. With Millsap on the sidelines tonight, Ersan Ilyasova will earn another start and there will be some increased opportunity for guys like Tim Hardaway Jr. and Taurean Prince.

  • Serge Ibaka suspended for one game
    Serge Ibaka has been suspended for one game.

    Advice: That means he's not going to play against the Heat on Thursday. Ibaka threw multiple punches at Robin Lopez, so he was clearly going to get at least one game. With him out, Jonas Valanciunas may actually play in the fourth quarter while Pat Patterson figures to get more run. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:54 pm
  • Warriors hoping KD can return in season
    Kevin Durant's (knee) progress has the Warriors hopeful he can return before end of regular season, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: KD is doing some on-court work these days, but he still doesn't have a target date. He was expected to miss four weeks, which means his original target window will be at the end of this month. The Warriors would likely ease KD back in and perhaps do so in the first round of the postseason. If you're going to stash him, there's a decent chance he won't make much of an impact upon his return. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:16 pm

  • Arthur (knee) will be active Wednesday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will be active for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavs.

    Advice: It's been quite the turnaround for Arthur. As recently as Monday, coach Mike Malone was addressing questions about Arthur potentially being shut down for the season. Now, he'll suit up on Wednesday night. However, with Wilson Chander (groin) also expected to return, as well as Kenneth Faried, Mason Plumlee and Juancho Hernangomez in the mix, it will be difficult for Arthur to carve out extended minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:59 am
  • Chandler (groin) expects to play Wednesday
    Wilson Chandler (groin) was able to participate in shootaround on Wednesday and is expected to play Wednesday night vs. the Cavs.

    Advice: Chandler had missed four straight games. If Chandler does play, he will eat into the minutes of Juan Hernangomez, Kenneth Faried, Mason Plumlee and Will Barton. Darrell Arthur (knee) is also expected to return on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:21 am
  • Danilo Gallinari (knee) ruled out Wednesday
    Coach Mike Malone said that Danilo Gallinari (knee) will not play Wednesday vs. Cleveland.

    Advice: This will be the fourth straight game Gallo has missed. Fortunately for the Nuggets, both Wilson Chandler (groin) and Darrell Arthur (knee) are expected to return on Wednesday night. It is unknown if Juancho Hernangomez will draw another start in place of Gallinari. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:18 am

  • John Henson (thumb) questionable Wednesday
    John Henson (left thumb sprain) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Henson appeared to injure his left thumb on Tuesday night when Damian Lillard crossed him up, causing Henson to fall to the floor. If Henson is unable to play on Wednesday, Greg Monroe would soak up most of his minutes. Thon Maker would likely see an uptick in playing time as well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:59 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) may return on Wednesday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) may be available to play on Wednesday vs. the Cavs if "all goes well at shootaround."

    Advice: This is surprising news, as earlier this week Coach Michael Malone admitted there was an outside possibility that Arthur would have to be shut down for the season. Apparently, he has made great strides in just two days. However, with Mason Plumlee playing well and Kenneth Faried healthy, there are limited minutes available for Arthur even if he is active. He can be left on waivers in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 am
  • Derrick Favors (knee) ruled out for Wednesday
    Derrick Favors (left knee bone contusion) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Favors has not played since March 6th and is considered out indefinitely. There is a chance he returns before the end of the regular season, but he will be on a minutes restriction if/when he does. This time of year, when roster spots are so valuable, he belongs on the waiver wire in fantasy leagues without an IR spot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:44 am

  • Jeff Green (back) will not play Wednesday
    Coach Frank Vogel said that Jeff Green (back spasms) has been ruled out of Wednesday night's game vs. the Hornets.

    Advice: This will be just the third game Green has missed all season. However, he has apparently played through back spasms intermittently. Green had been averaging 17.5 minutes per game off the Magic's bench in March. Mario Hezonja will likely soak up the majority of the extra minutes available on Wednesday.

  • Malone 'hopeful' Gallo and Chandler play Wed
    Coach Michael Malone said that he is "hopeful" that Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Wilson Chandler (groin) will play Wednesday vs. the Cavs.

    Advice: "Hopeful is the word I’d use," Malone said on Monday night. "We’ll have to wait and see how their continued rehabs go and how they’re feeling. For both of those guys it comes down to whether they’re comfortable enough and confident enough to go out there and play at a high level." Gallinari is currently listed as doubtful in the game notes, while Chandler is questionable. We should receive a reliable update after the Nuggets shootaround Wednesday morning. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:08 am
    Injured
     
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) without a timetable
    Coach Michael Malone said there is a "very, very remote" chance that Darrell Arthur (knee) will be shut down for the season.

    Advice: Arthur has not played since March 11th. "With 13 games to go and that knee being as troublesome as it has been at times, I guess that’s always a possibility," Malone said. "I don’t think we’re there yet. He’s not there yet. We’ll have to wait and see how it reacts to all the treatment he’s getting." At the very least, we can consider Arthur doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavs. He should be left on waivers in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:46 am
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 22 in big win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 8-of-21 shots for 22 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks in 36 minutes of Tuesday's 93-90 win over the Blazers.

    Advice: Giannis tweaked an ankle on Saturday, but was never really in jeopardy of missing this game. This was a huge win for the Bucks, who now sit just 1/2 game in front of the No. 8 seeded Heat. This is good news for his owners, as the Bucks are going to need everything he has to offer in order to ensure the Bucks make the playoffs. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:05 pm

  • Omri Casspi plays 22 minutes in debut
    Omri Casspi played 22 minutes in his Wolves debut vs. the Spurs on Tuesday, finishing with five points (2-of-2 FGs), one rebound and one triple.

    Advice: Wolves coach Tom Thibodeau was talking him up before the game and said he likes his floor spacing, so maybe he can earn a larger role going forward. For now, Casspi is just someone to keep an eye on in deeper formats. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:44 pm
  • Nerlens Noel plays 17 minutes in ugly loss
    Nerlens Noel played just 17 minutes and finished with 14 points, seven rebounds and a block in Tuesday's blowout 112-87 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Noel was quiet on Sunday against the Nets and failed to score, and then was the victim of the blowout tonight. He should be fine going forward, as long as he's healthy enough to play. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:48 pm
  • Antetokounmpo (ankle) starting vs. Blazers
    Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is starting vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

  • Serge Ibaka and Robin Lopez ejected Tuesday
    Serge Ibaka and Robin Lopez were ejected from Tuesday's game in the third quarter.

    Advice: Both players got tangled up and punches were thrown, but none of them landed. However, a suspension for both players is a very real possibility. If Ibaka is suspended for Thursday's game vs. the Heat, Jonas Valanciunas would likely be the biggest winner, while Patrick Patterson and maybe even Lucas Noguiera would benefit. Ibaka finished with 16 points, six rebounds, one assist and two triples in 26 minutes. You can check out the incident in the link below. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:55 pm
  • Alan Williams (illness) will not play Tuesday
    Alan Williams (illness) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Heat.

    Advice: Wow. He's not even with the team, but the Suns didn't even bother to mention this -- this report came as the first quarter was wrapping up. With Williams out, Alex Len gets a nice boost and Marquese Chriss will have to play more center. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:21 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    Advice: A report on Monday stated that Arthur is currently without an official timetable to return, so him being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game feels a bit overly optimistic. We should have another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but even if he's cleared to play, Arthur won't be worth a roster spot in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:19 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari (knee) doubtful Wednesday
    Danilo Gallinari (knee) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

    Advice: Gallinari was hopeful that he'd be able to return to the court for Wednesday's game, but now it's looking like it'll be his fourth straight game on the sidelines. With Gallinari unlikely, Juan Hernangomez could be looking at another start, and there will be more opportunity for Will Barton with the second unit. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:11 pm

  • Wilson Chandler (groin) questionable vs. CLE
    Wilson Chandler (groin) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. Cleveland.

    Advice: Chandler has missed the past four games, but he said on Monday that he was shooting to return on Wednesday night. Owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if Chandler is able to return to action, there will be less opportunity for guys like Juan Hernangomez, Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee. Jamal Murray's usage could also suffer a slight hit with Chandler active. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:11 pm
  • Omri Casspi available to play Tuesday vs. SA
    Omri Casspi will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: "Shooting is critical," Timberwolves head coach Tom Thibodeau said. "We think [Casspi] can open up the floor. He’s shown throughout his career he’s been a really good shooter. We’ve always liked him. So we’ll get a look at him." Casspi is still sporting a small brace on his surgically repaired thumb, and he'll likely be rusty tonight considering he hasn't taken the court in about a month, so this is wait-and-see territory in most leagues.

  • Giannis tweaks ankle in Saturday's loss
    Giannis Antetokounmpo tweaked his right ankle while blocking Draymond Green's shot on Saturday and immediately left the game.

    Advice: He scored just nine points in the blowout loss and played 31 minutes, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious. We expect him to play on Tuesday night, but owners of the Greek Freak should watch for injury updates prior to game time in order to be certain he's playing tonight. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:08 am

  • Kristaps Porzingis posts 18 and 11 in return
    Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) finished with 18 points, 11 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes in Monday's loss against the Clippers.

    Advice: Porzingis looked pretty sharp in his return from a thigh injury and as expected he did not play with any kind of a minutes cap. In fact, he played all the way down to the final minute despite a lopsided score for most of the second half. With Porzingis back it was Lance Thomas sliding back to a reserve role. It appears safe to plug Porzingis back into the active fantasy lineup in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:08 pm
  • Richaun Holmes grabs career-high 14 boards
    Richaun Holmes was plugged into the starting lineup Tuesday at Orlando and he delivered, finishing with 24 points and a career-high 14 rebounds in 42 minutes.

    Advice: Holmes hit 11 of his 19 field goal tries while also adding four assists with a steal and a blocked shot. He certainly responded well to his return to the starting five and he will likely remain there until Jahlil Okafor (knee) is ready to return. Since there is no real reason to rush Okafor back it could be an extended period of starting for Holmes which is great news for his short-term fantasy appeal. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:56 pm

    Al Horford scored 16 points with nine rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal vs. the Wizards on Monday.

    Advice: He finished 6-of-11 from the field, but only managed to hit 4-of-7 from the line. Horford scored a season-high 27 points in his previous outing and is averaging 17.8 points, 8.2 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 2.2 blocks, 0.8 steals and 1.0 triples over his last five games. He's been underwhelming for most of the season, but at least he's stepping up in a big way during the fantasy playoffs. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:53 pm

  • Darrell Arthur without a timetable to return
    Darrell Arthur (knee) is currently without an official timetable to return.

    Advice: Monday will mark Arthur's fourth straight game on the sidelines, and while Denver is hopeful that he'll be able to make it back to the court sometime before the end of the regular season, it doesn't seem like he's very close at all to making that happen. Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee will pick up most of Arthur's minutes, and Arthur can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:53 pm
  • Millsap (knee) could miss more than 2 games?
    Head coach Mike Budenholzer would not commit to Paul Millsap only needing two games off to rest up his left knee but did describe the injury as a "short term" issue.

    Advice: At the very least, Millsap will be on the sidelines for both Monday and Wednesday's games, and it sounds like there's a chance he could miss Friday's matchup in Milwaukee as well. Ersan Ilyasova will be one of the primary beneficiaries with Millsap on the shelf, and there will also be more opportunity for guys like Tim Hardaway Jr. and Taurean Prince. Millsap owners can expect to get more than a few updates leading up to Friday's tip. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:26 pm

  • Richaun Holmes starting vs. the Magic
    Richaun Holmes is starting vs. the Magic on Monday.

    Advice: Jahlil Okafor (knee) is out and could miss additional time, but Holmes has been worth owning for weeks. He's averaging 12.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.1 steals and 0.6 triples in March, so he is clearly worth deploying in standard leagues. Shawn Long will back him up. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:00 pm
  • Timberwolves officially sign Omri Casspi
    The Timberwolves have officially signed Omri Casspi.

    Advice: With Lance Stephenson no longer on the roster and Nemanja Bjelica (foot) done for the year, Casspi should be able to get some playing time in Minnesota. However, this remains a wait-and-see situation just about everywhere. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:40 pm
  • Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) will play Monday
    Kristaps Porzingis (bruised left thigh) will play Monday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Porzingis was a full participant during Sunday's practice, and there's been no discussion of a minutes limit, so owners can feel confident plugging Porzingis back into their starting lineup following a one-game absence. With Porzingis back in action, Lance Thomas will likely return to the bench, and he'll lose most of his value with the demotion to the second unit. Rotoworld.com Monday, 11:43 am
  • Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) out Monday
    Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) will not play on Monday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: This will be his third game in a row on the shelf, but it could also be his last -- Gallo said he's hopeful to play on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers. The Nuggets have a total of four games this week, but starting Gallo in a weekly league is still pretty risky. Will Barton, Juancho Hernangomez and Jamal Murray are all solid streaming options on Monday with Wilson Chandler (groin) also out. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:08 am
    Injured
     
  • Chandler and Gallinari ruled out for Monday
    Wilson Chandler (groin) and Danilo Gallinari (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: This is his fourth game in a row on the shelf, but both Chandler and Gallo are hoping to return on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers. If he is able to play vs. the Cavs, that means his owners would still get him for three games. To be clear, he's still a very risky start in weekly formats. Will Barton, Juancho Hernangomez and Jamal Murray will continue to get a bump in value until Chandler and Gallo are able to return. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:07 am
  • Derrick Favors (knee) ruled out Monday
    Derrick Favors (knee) will not play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He's out indefinitely, but maybe he returns to the lineup later this month. Even if he does, most fantasy owners will want to steer clear of the oft-injured big man. The Jazz will likely continue to play more small ball with Joe Johnson getting more run, but Joe Ingles is likely the best player in Utah that's available on your wire right now.

  • Holmes playing with a chip on shoulder
    Richaun Holmes said that he always plays with a chip on his shoulder.

    Advice: "I've been overlooked for so long that it's always been that," Holmes said. "There's always been somebody that's bigger, somebody that's supposedly better. It's always been that way." Holmes opened the season as the fourth-string center, but he has a legitimate chance to start the rest of the way -- Jahlil Okafor left Sunday's game with right knee soreness. Coach Brett Brown loves Holmes and called him a "modern-day player," so the 76ers keep dropping hints that he could open the 2017-18 season as the primary backup behind Joel Embiid. With averages of 12.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.1 steals and 0.6 triples in March, Holmes is a must-start player vs. the Magic on Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:11 am
  • Kevin Love strong in Sunday's return
    Kevin Love scored 21 points with 15 rebounds in Sunday's 125-120 win against the Lakers.

    Advice: Love was back after resting in Saturday's game against the Clippers and apparently the down time did him some good. He hit three triples and was active on the boards, looking good in the town where he played his college ball at UCLA. Love was markedly better than Thursday, his first game back after a long layoff following knee surgery. You can likely bank on Love resting during back-to-back situations and whenever the score gets remotely out of hand, as the Cavs need their big man for what they hope is another long postseason run.

  • Skal Labissiere hot from the floor
    Skal Labissiere ended up with 14 points and seven rebounds in Sunday's 118-102 loss against the Spurs.

    Advice: The rookie connected on seven of his nine field goal attempts and is now hitting 63.3 percent from the field (50-of-79) in 10 games in the month of March. Labissiere is logging plenty of time since the trade of fellow Kentucky alum DeMarcus Cousin to New Orleans and it's now his time to shine. He and another Wildcat, Willie Cauley-Stein, are the future in Sacramento in the middle. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:56 pm
  • Serge Ibaka shoots well from field
    Serge Ibaka was 7-of-11 from the field in Sunday's 116-91 victory against the Pacers, finishing with 16 points, five rebounds and a blocked shot in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Ibaka's .636 shooting percentage in the blowout win tied his best in 13 games since coming over from the Magic in a trade back in mid-February. While his offense has been better lately, he has managed just two blocked shots over past three games to give his fantasy owners a new reason to wring their hands and shake their heads. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:19 pm
  • Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) practices Sunday
    Kristaps Porzingis (bruised left thigh) practiced on Sunday and said he hopes to play vs. the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: The official game notes have Porzingis listed as 'out' but that's usually meaningless, since game notes tend to parrot whatever happened in the previous game. Both KP and coach Jeff Hornacek have been optimistic that he'll play on Monday, so all signs are pointing in that direction. Check back for more concrete updates following shootaround. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 3:15 pm
  • Richaun Holmes has five assists, four blocks
    Richaun Holmes scored eight points with seven rebounds, five assists, four blocks and two steals in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Advice: Those five assists are a career high and he did much more work on the ball today. Jahlil Okafor (knee) did not play in the second half of this game with his troublesome knee injury. Holmes has already outplayed Jah in a big way with his coach saying he likes his speed, bounce, called him a "modern-day player" and said he "could be a keeper." Holmes has absolutely been a keeper in his last five, averaging 14.6 points, 7.2 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.4 steals and 0.8 treys on 66.0 percent from the field. He needs to be owned everywhere in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:02 pm
  • Paul Millsap (knee) ruled out for two games
    Paul Millsap (left knee tightness) will not play in the next two games.

    Advice: That's not good after it sounded like he was getting rest on Saturday. The Hawks play Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, so hopefully Millsap can make it back for a big game against the Bucks on Friday. While he's out, Ersan Ilyasova becomes a player worth owning in all standard leagues. This news also helps guys like Tim Hardaway Jr. and we should see Taurean Prince in the rotation. The Hawks will go smaller more often, as well. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:31 pm

  • Al Horford scores season-high 27 in loss
    Al Horford scored a season-high 27 points during a 105-99 loss to the 76ers on Sunday, adding eight rebounds, six assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes.

    Advice: That's two 20-plus scoring games in his last three. Before that, Horford didn't hit 20 points in any game since Jan. 25, so it's been a prolonged offensive slump for one of the most consistent offensive players over the last decade. Not having Isaiah Thomas obviously helped and he does have a 22.7 usage rate without him and he's even more efficient, too. We saw Horford tear it up earlier this year even with IT next to him, so maybe this gets him going. His owners have to love this line heading into four home games this week.

  • ESPN: Wolves are close to signing Omri Casspi
    Omri Casspi is closing on a deal with the Timberwolves, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: He reportedly is ahead of schedule on his thumb injury and he getting close to his original target date. The Wolves are dying for a combo forward like Casspi with Nemanja Bjelica (ankle) out for the season, and they also lost Lance Stephenson. Casspi would likely get minutes, but he's not a great player to add just yet. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:53 pm
  • Nerlens Noel doesn't score vs. Nets
    Nerlens Noel did not score with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 21 minutes against the Nets on Sunday.

    Advice: The pace was not his friend in this game and Noel was in foul trouble. As a Mav, he was flirting with early-round value before this game, so there's no need to worry even though he's coming off the bench. The Mavs will need his pick-and-roll defense against the Warriors, Clippers and Raptors this week. Start him. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:28 pm
  • Darrell Arthur out again
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play on Monday against the Rockets.

    Advice: With Kenneth Faried back and Mason Plumlee playing well as a power forward, Arthur likely won't be in the rotation when healthy. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:10 am
  • Wilson Chandler questionable for Monday
    Wilson Chandler (groin) is questionable for Monday against the Rockets.

    Advice: Due to some contact to his groin last Saturday, Chandler has missed his last three games. On Thursday, coach Mike Malone said he didn't know how much time Chandler would miss, so this is a good sign. Still, there is a chance he could miss time considering how many groin injuries he's had in his career. If he's back, this will likely take minutes from Kenneth Faried and perhaps the Nuggets won't go with as much Mason Plumlee at the four. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:09 am
  • Chandler, Gallinari are questionable vs. HOU
    Wilson Chandler (right groin contusion) and Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) have been upgraded to questionable for Monday at Houston.

    Advice: This is encouraging news after both players missed multiple games with their injuries. If Gallinari does return, that should take minutes from Will Barton and Juancho Hernangomez. It could also take away from Jamal Murray and Jameer Nelson because Murray likely wouldn't play as much SG. Hopefully, the Nuggets provide an update on Gallo Monday afternoon.

  • Kristaps Porzingis listed as out in notes
    Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) is listed as out in the Sunday game notes for Monday's game against the Clippers.

    Advice: To be very clear here, this does not mean he is out for this game. Porzingis said he is expected to play in this game and coach Jeff Hornacek also added he thinks Porzingis had a good chance to play. We should have another update Monday afternoon before fantasy owners have to set their rosters. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:50 am
  • Richaun Holmes will come off the bench
    Richaun Holmes will come off the bench on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: He drew a lot of praise for his effort in a start on Friday after he racked up 17 points, seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in 20 minutes. He is averaging 13.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.7 triples in March, but it doesn't really matter if he starts the game because he's basically locked into a timeshare with Jahlil Okafor for now. Depending on the matchups, Holmes will likely make some more starts going forward and is worth owning in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:29 am
  • Richaun Holmes thriving as starter
    Richaun Holmes said he feels "very comfortable" in the first unit.

    Advice: "Every time you step on the court, [an] opportunity to play against the best in the world, you're going to get better," Holmes said. "I feel like I'm getting better with every game, learning more every game, and just looking to continue to improve." He is averaging 13.4 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.0 steals, 0.7 blocks and 0.7 triples in March while shooting 63.3 percent from the field, and he's making a strong case to open the 2017-18 season as the primary backup center behind Joel Embiid. He should be owned in all standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:12 am
  • Giannis Anteotokounmpo gets held to 9 points
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored nine points during a blowout 117-92 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding three rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals in 31 minutes.

    Advice: The Warriors know how to defend drivers as well as just about anyone and Antetokounmpo got a little too much Draymond Green today. He came into this game with a 53.9 field goal percentage in March and he continues to flirt with his two steals and two blocks per game. His fantasy owners will have a big advantage next week with the Bucks suiting up for four games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:42 pm

  • Kenneth Faried scores 11 in lss
    Kenneth Faried scored 11 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 23 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: He's playing well and is back to seeing minutes at mostly power forward. In his last two games, he's played 15 minutes next to Nikola Jokic, 22 minutes next to Mason Plumlee and four minutes as the lone big man. Faried's upside still isn't that high with Mason Plumlee being successful and Wilson Chandler (groin) returning would hurt him even more, so he's not the best pickup. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:55 pm
  • Juancho has a solid game in start
    Juancho Hernangomez scored 15 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes as the starting small forward against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Nuggets look like they hit on another international guy. Hernangomez has made a very impressive 45.9 percent from deep this season. Before tonight, a whopping 71 of his 73 attempts were catch-and-shoot attempts, so having Nikola Jokic is helping. With Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari out, Hernangomez is a decent guy to hold until those two get the all clear. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:38 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play vs. HOU
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: The Nuggets are really shorthanded at forward with Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Wilson Chandler (groin). We'll see plenty of Mason Plumlee and coach Mike Malone said he was OK going big against the Rockets. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:56 pm
  • Kevin Love will not play on Saturday
    Kevin Love will not play on Saturday night against the Clippers.

    Advice: This isn't surprising at all with the Cavs resting Love on the front end of a back-to-back set. It actually wouldn't even be a surprise to see him rest on Sunday, too. The Cavs are playing with house money on Love because he beat his timetable to return. He'll be seeing several games off as the Cavs get ready for the postseason. Channing Frye will start and benefit most tonight. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:10 pm

  • Skal Labissiere scores 13 points
    Skal Labissiere scores 13 points during a 110-94 loss to the Thunder on Saturday, adding four rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes.

    Advice: While this line probably made his recent owners frown after a 32-point explosion in Phoenix on Wednesday, it could have been a lot worse. He committed three fouls in his five first-quarter minutes and really didn't have anything going until the fourth. Labissiere continues to show he has terrific moves in the halfcourt and the Kings are starting to feed him the ball more. The Kings are also using him in more lineup combinations as a small forward, which may help if the Kings decide to go with a very big lineup. Labissiere probably won't be a difference-making add, but he should be owned in standard leagues as the Kings try to identify what his limits are. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:00 pm
  • Paul Millsap (left knee) out for Saturday
    Paul Millsap (left knee tightness) will not play on Saturday against the Blazers.

    Advice: It will be his first game out of the lineup since Dec. 3. This is not on a back-to-back set and it's not on the road, so this isn't just rest for the 32-year-old forward. Ersan Ilyasova gets a big bump and Mike Muscala should also be in the rotation this evening. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:20 pm

    Kevin Durant (knee) was getting shots up at shootaround on Saturday.

    Advice: It's a step in the right direction for the former MVP. Durant is still not close to a return and he is expected to be re-evaluated around Mar. 28. He'll likely need at least a week or two off after that, so he's still unlikely to play this regular season. Pat McCaw, Ian Clark and Matt Barnes have stepped up, but none of them are great pickups.

    Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) said he believes his injury is "nothing serious" and that he plans on playing Monday night vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: KP sat out Thursday's game after injuring his thigh in Tuesday's win over the Pacers. "This is just one game, the muscle swelled up. That’s how I see it right now. Nothing serious," said Porzingis. He also quickly dismissed the notion that he would be shut down at some point later this season. "If I’m healthy, I want to be out there. Not even a question." This is encouraging news for fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:43 am
  • Jeff Green scores just two points
    Jeff Green made 1-of-9 from the field for two points with eight rebounds, one assist and one turnover against the Suns on Friday.

    Advice: This is totally unacceptable on St. Patrick's Day. Anyway, Green just doesn't have fantasy value when the Magic are healthy up front. He doesn't even have much when players are out. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:55 pm

  • Big Sauce only gets 12 points
    Alan Williams scored 12 points with seven rebounds and two assists in just 16 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

    Advice: Alex Len actually showed up in this game and Big Sauce was in foul trouble, so that explains the low minutes. Williams' fantasy owners shouldn't worry here and can plan on a better game against Andre Drummond and company on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:49 pm
  • John Henson blocks four shots in win
    John Henson blocked four shots on Friday vs. the Lakers with eight points, nine rebounds and one assist in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Greg Monroe was ejected in the third quarter, so Henson closed this game out for the Bucks and played well. He's averaging 6.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.2 blocks over his last five games, but the problem is that he's getting just 17.6 minutes per game in that span and coach Jason Kidd has pulled him out of the rotation in the past without warning. For now, he's more of a deep-league pickup if you need blocks. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:30 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 26 points in win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points before fouling out of Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: He fouled out of a game for the fourth time this season, but at least this time he fouled out in the final minute. Giannis shot 11-of-16 from the field in 35 minutes, adding eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks, one triple and four turnovers. The Bucks have won eight out of their last nine games and are seventh in the East, so the Greek Freak will feast the rest of the way with four games on the schedule in each of the next two weeks.

Horford's owners probably shouldn't feel 100 percent about him returning to the player he was back in 2016, but he looks like he can be trusted as an early-round guy. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:23 pm

    Richaun Holmes scored 17 points in the starting lineup against the Mavs during an easy 116-74 win on Friday, adding seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in 20 minutes.

    Advice: He had a red-hot start with 15 points in the first half and didn't play in garbage time. Holmes actually made his first seven shots from the field, so coach Brett Brown going with him as the starter worked out. Brown said he likes Holmes' bounce and speed, so it's possible he sticks with him in the starting lineup. He should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:21 pm
  • Nerlens Noel scores nine in Philly return
    Nerlens Noel came off the bench in Philadelphia on Friday with nine points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 19 minutes.

    Advice: He received a standing ovation when he checked into the game and responded with a wave to the crowd. Noel's playing time likely would've been higher had this game been closer, so don't read to much into those 19 minutes. He has been third-round player in his previous 10, so keep him rolling. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:32 pm
  • Richaun Holmes will start against the Mavs
    Richaun Holmes will start against the Mavs on Friday.

    Advice: With Dirk Nowitzki at the five, coach Brett Brown would rather have a defensive five man in Holmes out there. He should be looking at minutes in the 20s with Jahlil Okafor behind him. Holmes should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:55 pm
  • Nerlens Noel off bench; Dirk starting at C
    Nerlens Noel will come off the bench against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: It'll be Yogi Ferrell, Seth Curry, Wes Matthews, Harrison Barnes and Dirk Nowitzki in the starting lineup. Noel should still be getting some decent minutes against his former team, so he should be in all fantasy lineups. He's a viable DFS play, too. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:53 pm
  • Derrick Favors (knee) out again for Saturday
    Derrick Favors (knee) is out again for Saturday against the Bulls.

    Advice: He's basically out indefinitely and can be dropped in most leagues. The Jazz have liked their small-ball lineup and will likely use it again against the Bulls. That should help Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles, especially if a questionable Rodney Hood can't play. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:17 pm

  • Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari out vs. HOU
    Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Wilson Chandler (groin) will not be available for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

    Advice: Both of these forwards do not have a target date, but coach Mike Malone said there was a chance they come back soon. However, getting ruled out a day in advance is usually not a good sign for the next few games. With Gallo and Chandler out, Will Barton went off with a career-high 35 points on Thursday while he also saw a few more Jamal Murray minutes at the two. Barton should be owned in all leagues while Murray is starting to trend up as a pickup. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:21 pm

  • Wilson Chandler out again for Saturday
    Wilson Chandler (groin) will not be available for Saturday's game vs. Houston.

    Advice: The Nuggets haven't really missed Chandler too much these days thanks to their success with the Mason Plumlee and Nikola Jokic lineups. Besides Plumlee, Juancho Hernangomez should benefit, and he did score nine points with five boards, one steal and one trey in 26 minutes on Thursday. Kenneth Faried should also get minutes. Plumlee is probably the only one worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:21 pm
  • Juan Hernangomez comes up with a solid game
    Juan Hernangomez made a start on Thursday with nine points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

    Advice: He's been elite in efficiency for rookies this year and he's always been capable of filling the stat sheet. Per 36 minutes, Hernangomez averaged 13.1 points, 8.3 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.7 blocks and 2.0 treys this season. With both Wilson Chandler (groin) and Danilo Gallinari (knee) having unclear return dates, Juancho is worth a speculative look for those with something to cut. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:21 pm
  • Kenneth Faried scores 12 in return
    Kenneth Faried (back) returned from a nine-game absence on Thursday with 12 points, six rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes.

    Advice: Coach Mike Malone said he wanted to keep his minutes down and he was able to do so in the easy win. Faried played well and even had some confidence on some jumpers. "I'm happy to be back. Watching them from the bench was hard. You want to be out there having fun. I felt like a kid again," Faried said. Given the success of Mason Plumlee, Faried isn't really a great add.

  • Paul Millsap struggles in loss to Grizzlies
    Paul Millsap hit just 3-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 10 points, three rebounds, a steal and a block on Thursday, and was dominated by JaMychal Green, who has been struggling lately.

    Advice: It wasn't a great night for Millsap or the Hawks and this was his lowest scoring night in the month of March. Millsap had been playing well and power forwards tend to have a ton of success against the Blazers, who the Hawks face on Saturday night. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:02 pm

  • Serge Ibaka scores 10 points
    Serge Ibaka scored 10 points with three rebounds, one assist and one block in 27 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday during a 123-102 loss.

    Advice: No revenge game this time. That hot start from Serge has gone south in The North. In his last three games, Ibaka averaged 6.3 points, 5.3 boards, 2.0 blocks and 0.3 treys. Obviously those blocks are great and his minutes are still likely to be over 30 when the Raptors are in a close game. Expect him to flirt with early-round value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:00 pm
  • Kevin Love goes for 10 & 9 in return
    Kevin Love returned from knee surgery on Thursday and hit 5-of-9 shots for 10 points and nine rebounds in 20 minutes.

    Advice: Baby steps, right? He looked pretty good and should see his minutes count slowly increase as the season winds down. But the fact he nearly double-doubled in his first game back is a great sign, so owners should plan on deploying him any time he's going to play for the Cavs. Just make sure he's in the lineup when the Cavs go back-to-back this Saturday and Sunday, Mar. 24-25, Mar. 30-31, Apr. 4-5 and Apr. 9-10.

  • Kenneth Faried coming off the bench
    Kenneth Faried is available off the bench on Thursday against the Clippers.

    Advice: Coach Mike Malone hinted Faried my not be where he needs to be, which is to be expected after he had such serious back pain. It may take him a few games to get going, so his potential fantasy owners may not want to add him if they have to wait a week for decent production. His upside isn't great anyway with Mason Plumlee playing well. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:33 pm
  • Juan Hernangomez, Mason Plumlee will start
    Juancho Hernangomez and Mason Plumlee will start against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: He should get some heavy minutes with Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Wilson Chandler (groin) out. Coach Mike Malone said he doesn't know how long those two vets will be out, so Hernangomez could be a decent speculative add. Mason Plumlee is also expected to start. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:23 pm
  • Wilson Chandler's return date is unclear
    Coach Mike Malone said Wilson Chandler (groin) doesn't have a definitive timetable.

    Advice: There's a chance Chandler can make it back over the weekend, but he still isn't practicing yet. Chandler's fantasy owners will have to weigh if they want to keep him stashed, especially with the fantasy playoffs starting in several leagues. While he's out, Kenneth Faried, Mason Plumlee and Juan Hernangomez should pick up the minutes at the four. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:58 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari's return date is unclear
    Coach Mike Malone said there is "no definitive timetable" on Danilo Gallinari (knee).

    Advice: "It could be next game, hopefully it is," Malone said. Gallinari has a bone bruise and is not going to play on Thursday. With Wilson Chandler (groin) also out, we should get a heavy dose of Juan Hernangomez, Will Barton and some more Jamal Murray. Barton should be owned while Murray is a very interesting pickup in competitive leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:53 pm

  • Kristaps Porzingis hoping he's only out 1 gm
    Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) said he thinks he'll only need to miss Thursday's game and should play on the upcoming road trip.

    Advice: He was asked about shutting down, and KP said he wants to finish the season and basically laughed off the question. Porzingis suffered his injury on Tuesday and coach Jeff Hornacek also said he's only expecting his star big to miss just one game. With him out, Willy Hernangomez and Carmelo Anthony benefit while Lance Thomas and Kyle O'Quinn should step up. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:46 pm
  • Kevin Love (knee) back in the starting lineup
    Kevin Love (knee) will return to the starting lineup on Thursday against the Jazz.

    Advice: He is going to have a minutes limit, but this is wonderful news for the Cavs. They'll have about a month to get him back on track before the first round of the playoffs. The Cavs will almost certainly rest him in some back-to-back games. Make sure he's not still sitting on the waiver wire right now. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:20 pm

  • Kristaps Porzingis listed as out for Thursday
    Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) is listed as out for Thursday against the Nets.

    Advice: Coach Jeff Hornacek said he wasn't sure if Porzingis will play on the road trip, so KP could miss additional games. Besides Carmelo Anthony getting a hefty bump in usage, we'll see plenty of Willy Hernangomez in the first unit while Lance Thomas helps out. Hernangomez should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:21 pm
  • Derrick Favors, Rodney Hood out Thursday
    Derrick Favors (knee) and Rondey Hood (knee) have both been ruled out of Thursday's game vs. Cleveland.

    Advice: He's scheduled to be re-evaluated in a few days, but his fantasy owners should just move on at this point. With Favors out, the Jazz have been playing a lot of small ball and Joe Ingles and Joe Johnson have been the biggest winners.Daily Slant: With Favors, Hood and Mack off the floor this year, Gordon Hayward sports at 31.0% usage rate, a +1.8% bump from his season total, with George Hill picking up a slightly bigger bump (+1.9%). Both Hayward and Hill are viable targets against the Cavs, with Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles picking up between 25-30 minutes in relief of Hood and Favors. Neither carry terribly high ceilings, but Ingles is the better bet to see bigger minutes and given the short slate, he's playable in any format. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:56 am

  • Kenneth Faried (back) will play Thursday
    Kenneth Faried (low back) will play on Thursday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Faried has looked good in practice and he's ready to return from a nine-game absence. Wilson Chandler (groin), Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Darrell Arthur (body) have all been ruled out already, so Faried is a low-end pickup if you need to stream some boards. He could be limited right out of the gate, but we'll pass along his restrictions if the Nuggets provide another update. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:23 am
  • Nerlens Noel hints that his knee is fine
    Nerlens Noel said he sat out three games with left knee soreness as more of a precaution.

    Advice: He said the swelling was a "result of overuse" while trying to get up to speed with the Mavericks. "It's not like I'm handicapped," Noel said. "I could move around. It's just something I chose not to play through." He looked fine on Wednesday vs. the Wizards with 12 points, three rebounds, one assist and one block, and as long as the Mavs can stay within striking distance of the No. 8 seed, Noel's value should trend up. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:49 am
  • Skal Labissiere explodes for career-high 32
    Skal Labissiere scored a career-high 32 points against the Suns on Wednesday, adding 11 rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

    Advice: The youth movement is on. Skal went berserk in the fourth quarter, scoring the Kings' first 15 points of that frame and scoring 21 total in the fourth. Clearly, he's going to be getting more minutes as the Kings pick their spots on what veterans they will rest next to him. He's been extremely efficient and he's also shown improvement on the glass on defense. He won't be this good, but he should be picked up in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:24 pm
  • Alan Williams drops another double-double
    Alan Williams scored 14 points with 11 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 31 minutes against the Kings on Wednesday.

    Advice: Another night, another double-double. Williams has a double-double in seven of his eight March games with consistent playing time in each. Alex Len isn't taking minutes from him and Tyson Chandler is likely done for the year, so keep plugging in Big Sauce as a possible mid-round guy going forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:11 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo limited by fouls vs LAC
    Giannis Antetokounmpo played just 28 minutes vs. the Clippers on Wednesday, but he still finished with 16 points (5-of-10 FGs, 6-of-9 FTs), five rebounds, five assists and one block.

    Advice: Antetokounmpo picked up two fouls in the first eight minutes of the game, forcing a substitution, and he picked up a third foul after playing 4:24 in the second quarter. Jason Kidd was playing it safe, in other words. Giannis came in leading his team in points (23.1), rebounds (8.6), assists (5.5), blocks (1.9), and steals (1.8), and he's successfully guided the Bucks into the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

  • Boris Diaw comes off bench Wednesday
    Boris Diaw headed to the bench vs. Detroit on Wednesday, finishing the road victory with seven points, three assists and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Diaw played just 21 minutes in a start vs. the Clippers on Monday, and his role isn't going to change much whether he's starting or coming off the bench. Quin Snyder said he'd play the matchups until Derrick Favors (knee) can return, so the PF position is likely to be fluid. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:25 pm
  • Al Horford gets 20/9/8 in win vs Timberwolves
    Al Horford toyed with a triple-double vs. the Wolves on Wednesday, scoring 20 points on 9-of-12 shooting with nine rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: It's a matchup Horford clearly enjoys. In his only other game vs. the Wolves this season, he finished with 20 points, six rebounds and five assists. He turned the ball over just once in 30 minutes tonight and is rolling since his return from injury. Hopefully you stuck with him during his inexplicable slump in March.

    Nerlens Noel (left knee) returned on Wednesday with 12 points in 23 bench minutes vs. the Wizards, making 4-of-8 FGs and 4-of-4 FTs with three rebounds, one assist and one block.

    Advice: Noel missed three games with the injury but didn't appear to be limited tonight. He quickly developed good chemistry with J.J. Barea, which could be one more reason for Dallas to keep him in a reserve role. It's not the worst thing for his fantasy value, and it's safe to activate him with two games left on the Mavs' schedule this week. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:45 pm
  • Derrick Favors evaluated in a few days
    Derrick Favors (knee) will be re-evaluated in a few days.

    Advice: He has been out this week with a bone contusion on his left knee, and the knee issues continue to pile up for Favors. It's looking like a lost season for Favors and his fantasy owners will probably want to look at other options right now. Coach Quin Snyder will play the matchups while he's out, but Joe Johnson and Joe Ingles should benefit. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:13 pm

  • Kevin Love (knee) could play this weekend?
    Kevin Love (knee) could return to the court as soon as Saturday's game vs. the Clippers, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

    Advice: Love was able to practice two days in a row, and while Wednesday's practice was just a light 20-minute workout, there have been whispers that he's looking to get back to the court by this weekend. Tyronn Lue said that he'll start as soon as he's cleared to play, so it makes sense to grab him if you're currently in a bye-week, or you have an open IR-slot. Just know that even if he's starting, his minutes will likely be relegated to the lower-20s for at least the first few weeks of his return. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:19 pm

  • Hornacek expects Porzingis to miss Thursday
    Coach Jeff Hornacek said he's expecting Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) to miss Thursday's game against the Nets.

    Advice: Hornacek also wasn't clear on KP playing on the upcoming road trip. "We’ll see whenever he’s ready to play," Hornacek said. While he's out, we'll see plenty of must-add Willy Hernangomez with some Lance Thomas and Kyle O'Quinn to help out. KOQ is also a solid pickup. Considering the Knicks are basically out of the postseason, the Knicks won't be in a rush to bring him back. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:58 pm
  • Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari out vs. LAC
    Wilson Chandler (right groin contusion) and Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) will not play against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: This Saturday groin injury will keep him out for at least a week with the Nuggets not playing again until Mar. 18. Chandler was able to return from this injury during that game, but it's become worse over time. He should be considered questionable for Saturday. While he's out, expect more run for Mason Plumlee, Will Barton, Juancho Hernangomez and more shots for the wings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:23 pm
  • Kenneth Faried (low back) is questionable
    Kenneth Faried (low back) is questionable against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: This is expected news with Faried looking good in practice, according to coach Mike Malone. Faried could actually be stepping into a nice role with Wilson Chandler (groin) and Danilo Gallinari (knee) ruled out for Thursday. He's still not a strong pickup until he proves otherwise. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:19 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) out
    Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) will not play against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: Gallinari did not practice on Wednesday and now we know why. A knee bone bruise could result in various games missed, so it's tough to get a read on how much time he will miss. Of course, we all know how many knee injuries he's suffered, including a left ACL tear. While he's out, Will Barton's value gets new life as a strong pickup while Juancho Hernangomez, Jamal Murray and Gary Harris also benefit. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:19 pm

  • Darrell Arthur (rest) has been ruled out
    Darrell Arthur (rest) has been ruled out against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: The Nuggets have said all along they would manage Arthur, so this isn't a surprise. Juancho Hernangomez and Mason Plumlee should pick up minutes, assuming Kenneth Faried (back) isn't 100 percent. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:19 pm
  • Wilson Chandler not at practice
    Wilson Chandler (groin) will not practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Mike Malone said he wasn't sure if Chandler could play, but he's likely going to be questionable. We should have an update on Chandler tomorrow, but the Nuggets may opt to be careful given his history with groin injuries in his career. If he's out again, Juan Hernangomez, Mason Plumlee and maybe even Kenneth Faried (back) can step up. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:02 pm
  • Gallinari, Wilson Chandler do not practice
    Danilo Gallinari and Wilson Chandler (groin) did not practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Coach Mike Malone said he wasn't sure who would be available for Thursday against the Clippers. Gallo has been fantastic since the break and has played 31.7 minutes per game since the break and he's looked healthy in each game. We don't have the details on the injury front, but it's possible this is a day off. On the other hand, he's not the most durable guy. If he can't go, Juan Hernangomez and Will Barton would benefit most. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:59 am

  • Kevin Love (knee) goes through light practice
    Kevin Love (knee surgery) went through a light practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Cavs only practiced for 20 minutes on Wednesday, so it was definitely a very light practice, but head coach Tyronn Lue did seem to hint that Love is on the cusp of a return. Love also got in some 3-on-3 work on Tuesday, and while he's still not officially been cleared to play, he's going to attempt to get back on the court sometime during Cleveland's upcoming four-game road trip (possibly this weekend). Lue said that Love will start once he's cleared, so he should be considered must-own in leagues with an IR-spot. Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson will lose most their value once Love is back on the court. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:29 am

  • Kristaps Porzingis (thigh) doesn't practice
    Kristaps Porzingis (left thigh contusion) did not practice on Wednesday.

    Advice: Porzingis exited Tuesday's game with the thigh contusion and did not return, and while he downplayed the injury after the game saying it was, "nothing serious," him sitting out Wednesday's practice isn't the greatest sign regarding his availability for Thursday's game against the Nets; Jeff Hornacek was non-committal regarding his status for Thursday night. Owners can expect to get another update following Thursday morning's shootaround, but if he's out, Willy Hernangomez will benefit most. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:08 am
  • Nerlens Noel (knee) expected to play vs. WAS
    Nerlens Noel (left knee) is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: Noel was a full participant during shootaround, so it would be shocking if he didn't take the court tonight. Wesley Matthews (calf) is headed for a game-time call, and if he's out, that could result in Noel moving back into the starting five. Stay tuned. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:44 am
  • Kevin Love (knee) could be back for road trip
    Kevin Love (knee surgery) participated in a 3-on-3 scrimmage on Tuesday and he may be able to return to action during Cleveland's upcoming four-game road trip.

    Advice: Love is currently at the 4-week mark of his initial 6-week timetable, but he described the knee scope as "very minor," so it sounds like there's a chance he could beat the initial 6-week timeline. The Cavs begin their four-game road trip on Saturday in Los Angeles and end it on Friday, March 24 in Charlotte. If Love is able to get back during this road trip, he'll likely be eased back into things, but with the potential for an imminent return, he needs to be stashed in all leagues with an IR-spot and should be strongly considered for those currently in a bye-week. Channing Frye will lose most of his value once Love returns to the court. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:21 pm

  • Nerlens Noel, Matthews questionable Wednesday
    Nerlens Noel (left knee) and Wesley Matthews (right calf) are questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: Noel said on Monday that the swelling in his left knee had gone down significantly, and he's expecting to play Wednesday, but owners will need to wait for their next update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Matthews was forced out of Monday's game with the calf injury and refused to talk about it with reporters after the game, so he seems a bit closer to doubtful. Stay tuned.

  • Omri Casspi (thumb) cleared to return
    ESPN's Marc Stien is reporting that Omri Casspi (thumb) has been cleared to resume basketball activities.

    Advice: Stein also reports that Casspi is "now evaluating his options and has drawn interest from multiple playoff teams, including the Grizzlies and Clippers." Casspi fractured his right thumb on Feb. 24 and was expected to be sidelined until March 24 at the earliest, so he is clearly ahead of schedule. However, it is unlikely he will be ready to play heavy minutes or make a significant fantasy impact over the final month of the regular season. He can be left on waivers.

  • Skal Labissiere swats four shots in win
    Skal Labissiere scored 11 points with seven rebounds and four blocked shots in Monday's start against the Magic.

    Advice: Labissiere moved into the starting five with several regulars out with either an injury or a planned rest. The rookie made the most of the chance, grabbing at least five boards for the fifth straight game, and eighth time in the past nine outings. The rookie is worth picking up in all deeper seasonal fantasy formats and he is a must-have in long-term keeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:29 pm
  • Boris Diaw doesn't do much in start
    Boris Diaw made the start Monday against the Clippers, but he finished with just five points, three rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes.

    Advice: Diaw made the start with Derrick Favors (knee) on the shelf, but he did very little with the opportunity. It was the 20th straight game without a double-digit point total dating back to Jan. 24. Even when he is in the starting five Diaw is only worth a look in the very deepest of seasonal fantasy play. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:33 pm
  • Paul Millsap scores 16 points
    Paul Millsap scored 16 points with five assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 40 minutes vs. the Spurs on Monday.

    Advice: He hit 6-of-13 shots from the field, but finished 0-of-2 from beyond the arc and 4-of-6 from the line. After averaging 32.0 minutes per game in February, Millsap is averaging 37.4 minutes in March because he's playing more small-ball center next to Ersan Ilyasova. While fantasy owners are loving the bump in minutes, Millsap might be looking at a DNP or two down the stretch as the Hawks will want him fresh for the postseason. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:31 pm

  • Serge Ibaka goes scoreless in 32 minutes
    Serge Ibaka failed to score in 32 minutes vs. the Mavericks on Monday.

    Advice: He was a team-high +18, but missed all four of his field goals for his third scoreless game since 2011-12. Ibaka did add nine rebounds and two blocks, but this wasn't an easy matchup for him -- the Mavericks have allowed the third fewest fantasy points to power forwards this season. Ibaka will look to bounce back on Thursday vs. the Thunder in a "revenge game." Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:29 pm
  • Skal Labissiere and Temple starting Monday
    The Kings will start Darren Collison, Garrett Temple, Buddy Hield, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Tyreke Evans (sore left ankle), Ty Lawson (rest), Kosta Koufos (rest) and Arron Afflalo (rest) are all out, so the Kings will only have nine available players. This is the first career start for Labissiere, but he's certainly earned it with some impressive play over the last few weeks. With the Kings in tank mode, we should see a lot more of him down the stretch. He's on the radar as a pickup in deeper leagues, but we'll let you know how he fares tonight. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:33 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (rest) will not play Monday
    Darrell Arthur (rest) will not play on Monday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: After this game, the Nuggets are off until Thursday's game vs. the Clippers. Arthur is only averaging 15.8 minutes per game on the season, so this won't impact too many fantasy owners. Juancho Hernangomez should be pretty busy with Kenneth Faried (back) also out. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:44 pm
  • Faried (back), Arthur (rest) ruled out Monday
    Kenneth Faried (back) and Darrell Arthur (rest) will not play on Monday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: Faried is traveling with the Nuggets and is progressing, but he was initially listed as doubtful for this contest. He now gets a few days of rest before the Nuggets take on the Clippers on Thursday. Expect Juancho Hernangomez to get a lot of run tonight. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:43 pm
  • Boris Diaw starting, Joe Johnson to bench
    Boris Diaw will start against the Clippers on Monday.

    Advice: The move will send Joe Johnson to the bench. Derrick Favors (knee) is out and the Jazz need size against Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, so the lineup change makes sense. Diaw isn't a great fantasy option. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:22 pm
  • Kevin Durant sheds knee brace, not practicing
    Kevin Durant has shed his knee brace, but he's still not been able to go through any portions of practice.

    Advice: Durant was limited to riding a stationary bike during Monday's practice, and the only encouraging thing here is that he told head coach Steve Kerr that he's "feeling really good." Durant might be able to make it back to the court for the final week of the 2016-17 regular-season, but that potential return date would fall outside of the fantasy season in a lot of leagues. If your league doesn't offer an IR-spot, it's probably best to send KD to the wire. Andre Iguodala has seen the largest uptick in value since Durant hit the sidelines. Rotoworld.com Mar 13, 1:02 pm

    Derrick Favors (left knee bone bruise) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Clippers.

    Advice: Favors is going to be watching from the sidelines until he's re-evaluated some time "later in the week," so it sounds like he's in serious danger of missing Utah's upcoming back-to-back set. Favors just never really got going this season, operating at a 14th round evaluation with averages of 9.6 points, 6.2 boards and not much else, and with an uncertain return date, it may be best to just move on in standard leagues.

  • Alan Williams w/ another double-double Sunday
    Alan Williams had another bare-bones double-double on Sunday with 12 points, 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

    Advice: Williams has six double-doubles in seven March games, despite averaging a modest 26.3 minutes, and he's paying off richly for anyone who snatched him off the waiver wire. Tyson Chandler was out tonight for personal reasons but he's no longer part of the rotation, while oft-injured Alex Len is dealing with a hip injury, all of which solidifies Big Sauce's rest-of-season outlook.
