  • Myles Turner struggles vs. ORL, tweaks ankle
    Myles Turner struggled vs. the Magic on Monday with eight points, five rebounds and two blocks in 34 minutes on 4-of-11 shooting, and he tweaked his ankle in the process.

    Advice: Turner simply had his ankle re-taped and quickly returned, but we'll put him on the injury report to be safe. He was able to play down the stretch and was moving around fine, but he couldn't generate much on the offensive end. Maybe he was fatigued after going off for a season-high 25 points on Sunday with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal in 32 minutes, but his owners should expect a bounce-back game with three days off until Friday's matchup vs. the Raptors.

  • Tobias Harris leads Pistons w/ 11 in blowout
    Tobias Harris hit 4-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers to lead the Pistons with 11 points, five rebounds and three assists in Monday's 116-88 blowout loss to the Cavaliers.

    Advice: The Pistons never knew what hit them in this one, falling behind 36-23 in the first quarter and then getting tuned up 37-23 in the second quarter for a 73-46 halftime score. Stanley Johnson and Reggie Jackson each scored 10 to join Harris in double figures, but the bottom line is tonight wasn't the night to start your Pistons. Rotoworld.com 48 minutes ago
  • Luke Babbitt (back) is available Monday
    Luke Babbitt (back) will play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: He hasn't missed any time since leaving a game early on Nov. 15, but the Hawks might list him as probable for the next month like they did with Marco Belinelli. He's a 3-point specialist with 2.6 treys over his last five games, but he's a one-trick pony in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:31 pm
  • Tony Allen (knee) probable Monday vs. OKC
    Alvin Gentry said he expects Tony Allen (knee) to play Monday against the Thunder.

    Advice: Allen has spent the past four games on the sidelines, so he'll likely only see minutes in the teens tonight, rendering him a non-option in most leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:22 pm
  • Amir Johnson expected to start if Embiid sits
    Amir Johnson will likely draw the start on Monday vs. Utah if Joel Embiid (sore knee) is unable to give it a go.

    Advice: Even as a starter, Johnson likely wouldn't earn much more than 15 minutes, so he's still not a great target should he move into the starting five tonight. Richaun Holmes, however, would very likely earn minutes in the mid-20s, if not more, if Embiid is out, which would make him a popular target in daily leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:47 pm
  • X-rays come back negative on Millsap's wrist
    X-rays taken on Paul Millsap's left wrist came back negative, but he will not play Monday vs. Sacramento.

    Advice: It's nice to know that Millsap didn't break anything, but depending on the severity of the sprain, he could be looking at more than just a one-game absence here. Kenneth Faried or Will Barton could move into the starting five tonight with Millsap out, and there will be more opportunity on offense for guys like Gary Harris, Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:18 pm
  • Trevor Booker (ankle) questionable Wednesday
    Trevor Booker said his sprained left ankle is "not too bad," but he was non-committal regarding his status for Wednesday's game in Cleveland.

    Advice: Booker said he initially suffered the ankle injury last Friday vs. Utah, and then aggravated the injury shortly into Sunday's game against the Warriors, which forced him to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines. We'll have a better idea on his status based on his activity level at practices leading up to Wednesday's tip, but if he is unable to give it a go, Quincy Acy, Jarrett Allen and Tyler Zeller would see an uptick in minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:28 pm
  • Lue hints Cedi Osman could get into rotation
    Tyronn Lue hinted that Cedi Osman could get into the rotation on Monday night with four rotation players unavailable.

    Advice: Osman might see some limited minutes in the rotation tonight, but we wouldn't expect him to receive substantial minutes. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:24 pm
  • Paul Millsap (wrist) ruled out for Monday
    Paul Millsap (left wrist) has been ruled out for Monday's game in Sacramento.

    Advice: Millsap sprained his wrist on Sunday night, and while X-rays came back negative, it won't be all that surprising if he's forced to spend at least a few games on the sidelines. Nuggets reporter Harrison Wind speculates that Kenneth Faried could be Millsap's replacement tonight, and if that's the case, he could be someone to consider as a punt play in DFS. We can also expect guys like Gary Harris, Nikola Jokic, Will Barton and Jamal Murray to all see an uptick in usage sans Millsap. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:16 am
  • Vucevic will play through knee soreness
    Nikola Vucevic banged knees on Saturday vs. the Jazz, but he will play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: He said his knee was sore on Sunday, but there's no word of any restrictions. The Magic will watch him closely and this makes him a risky DFS play, but season-long owners can go ahead and throw him into their lineups. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:46 am
  • Thabo Sefolosha (knee) will play on Monday
    Thabo Sefolosha (knee) will play on Monday vs. Philly.

    Advice: He was originally considered probable, so this isn't a surprise. Sefolosha has been more involved these days with Joe Johnson and Rudy Gobert on the sidelines, but he's more of a steals specialist with nine steals over his past four appearances. It's unclear if the Jazz will start Sefolosha or Jonas Jerebko vs. the 76ers. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:24 am
  • Marvin Williams (quad) probable Monday
    Marvin Williams (quad contusion) went through the morning shootaround on Monday.

    Advice: He's listed as probable to face the Wolves, but we'll have to wait until after warmups before we get the official word. If Williams can't play, Frank Kaminsky would get a lot of burn, and we could see Cody Zeller play some PF as well. Williams has been a disappointment this season as his counting stats are down across the board with 9.1 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.5 triples, 0.7 blocks and 0.5 steals. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:22 am
  • Magic recall Wesley Iwundu and Birch
    The Magic have recalled Wesley Iwundu and Khem Birch from the G-League.

    Advice: Birch has played six total minutes this season and Iwundu has played a total of 25. Unless there is garbage time, don't expect either rookie to play. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:20 am
  • Kyle Kuzma hits 7-of-11 shots for 17 points
    Kyle Kuzma finished Sunday's win vs. the Nuggets with 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting, three 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and one steal in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Luke Walton reportedly "challenged Kuzma to focus on his all-around game" prior to this contest, and he yanked him early tonight after some ill-advised shots. The playing time was easily Kuzma's lowest in November, but nothing suggests this will become a trend. He'll clear 30 minutes vs. the Bulls on Tuesday and remains a solid option in almost every fantasy format, despite a lack of defensive stats. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:54 pm
  • Julius Randle gets 24/7/5, hits 11-of-18 FGs
    Julius Randle lit up the Nuggets on Sunday for a season-high 24 points on 11-of-18 shooting, hitting one 3-pointer with seven rebounds, five assists and two turnovers.

    Advice: Randle played 32 minutes, after logging just 16 minutes vs. Phoenix on Friday, and after the game coach Luke Walton said, "When [Randle] plays like he did tonight, he's as good as anyone in this league]." Nikola Jokic (ejection) and Paul Millsap (wrist) were both out after halftime tonight, and Randle deserves credit for taking advantage of the situation, but we're skeptical since Kyle Kuzma is playing well at PF and Larry Nance (hand) is due back soon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:46 pm
  • Trey Lyles plays well w/ Millsap (wrist) out
    Trey Lyles took advantage of expanded minutes with Paul Millsap (wrist) leaving early on Sunday, posting 10 points, eight rebounds and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes.

    Advice: Lyles has scored more than five points just twice this season, but he'd be worth a speculative pickup if Millsap is ruled out for an extended period. To be clear, Millsap is just day-to-day as we await test results, so there's no immediate value to be found here. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:28 pm
  • Paul Millsap (wrist) awaits X-rays results
    Paul Millsap (left wrist) had X-rays taken after leaving Sunday's game in the first half, but the results aren't yet known.

    Advice: Millsap didn't play after halftime on Sunday, but Denver was trailing by more than 20 points so hopefully this isn't a long-term issue. The X-rays results should be disclosed soon. If Millsap does miss time, Trey Lyles should gain the most, with guys like Juan Hernangomez, Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee also picking up the slack. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:14 pm
  • Paul Millsap (left wrist sprain) exits Sunday
    Paul Millsap exited Sunday's game with a left wrist sprain, finishing with five points, four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 13 minutes.

    Advice: Millsap headed into the locker room and emerged with his wrist taped in the first half, but Will Barton replaced him in the starting lineup after halftime. This could be a simple precaution, especially since Nikola Jokic was ejected early and Denver trailed by 22 points at halftime, but we'll consider Millsap questionable for Monday's road game in Sacramento. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:28 pm
  • Myles Turner scores 25 points with full line
    Myles Turner broke out for a season-high 25 points during Sunday's road victory, making 11-of-14 shots with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, four assists, three blocks and one steal in 32 minutes.

    Advice: Since returning from a concussion and neck injury in early November, Turner was averaging a modest 12.0 points, 7.3 boards, 1.1 assists, 0.6 threes and 0.4 steals. He also posted 2.5 blocks per game in that span, which salvaged his value despite atypically poor percentages -- 41.6% from the field and 70.8% from the FT line. It was only a matter of time before he got back on track as an elite big man, and the buy-low window just slammed shut. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:02 pm
  • Trevor Booker (ankle) doubtful to return
    Trevor Booker (sprained left ankle) is doubtful to return vs. the Warriors on Sunday.

    Advice: The Nets aren't competitive in this game vs. the Warriors, so hopefully Booker's 'doubtful' tag is just a precaution. If he doesn't return, he'll finish scoreless with one rebound and one assist in nine minutes -- Quincy Acy, Jarrett Allen and Tyler Zeller will pick up the slack. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:29 pm
  • Luke Babbitt (back) probable for Monday
    Luke Babbitt (back) is being listed as probable for Monday's game against the Spurs.

    Advice: Babbitt is the new guy in Atlanta who has been getting hit with the probable tag as of late, and yes, he has not missed a single game. He'll be out there, but his minutes are starting to trend down with Ersan Ilyasova healthy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:49 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha (knee) probable for Monday
    Thabo Sefolosha (knee) is probable to play Monday vs. Philadelphia.

    Advice: Sefolosha looked fined in his return from a one-game absence on Saturday, so he should be just fine for Monday's game in Philly. Sefolosha will have the opportunity for more minutes while Rudy Gobert (knee) is out, but he's nothing more than a steals specialist in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:19 pm
  • Tony Allen (knee) questionable for Monday
    Tony Allen (knee) is questionable to face the Thunder on Monday.

    Advice: Allen has spent the past four games on the sidelines, but he was supposed to return to action on Friday, which hints that he's at least getting close. Perhaps he'll be able to get out there Monday night, but he won't be earning enough minutes to warrant a roster spot in most settings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:27 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha returned to action on Saturday November 18. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:51 pm
  • Luke Babbitt (back) starts vs. Celts Saturday
    Luke Babbitt (back) started on Saturday and had 11 points, two boards, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes, making 4-of-12 shots with three 3-pointers.

    Advice: Babbitt played just 11 minutes vs. the Kings on Wednesday, but he earned another start tonight despite the return of DeAndre Bembry (wrist). Tyler Cavanaugh played 15 minutes off the bench but Ersan Ilyasova was apparently a DNP-CD, which bodes well for Babbitt. He's still just a 3-point specialist in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 7:41 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha returns on Saturday
    Thabo Sefolosha scored eight points against the Magic on Saturday after a one-game absence, adding four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes.

    Advice: He is probably going to wind up starting in some games, but the odds of that may have gone down given the 40-point win today. Sefolosha is a steals specialist in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:57 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic scores eight points
    Nikola Vucevic scored eight points during a 126-85 loss to the Jazz on Saturday, adding two rebounds, one assist, two blocks and three steals in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Hey, at least the defensive stats were there. This was arguably his worst game as Derrick Favors dominated him on both ends. Vucevic's October was obviously unsustainable overall, but he's still hanging 1.7 treys per game in November to help him get to 14 per night. The Magic offense overall has really flattened out, but Vooch should still be able to flirt with top-40 value going forward. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:44 pm
  • Luke Babbitt in the starting lineup
    Luke Babbitt (back) will start against the Celtics on Saturday.

    Advice: He went through warmups and apparently everything went well for him. Babbitt has a lot of competition for his minutes now, so he will have to play well to keep his starting role. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:20 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha available for Saturday night
    Thabo Sefolosha (knee) will be available for Saturday against the Magic.

    Advice: We still don't know the starting lineup or if Sefolosha will be limited after missing Friday. Jonas Jerebko is likely going to lose minutes. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:41 pm
  • Luke Babbitt likely to start on Saturday
    If Luke Babbitt (back) is OK after warmups, he will be in the starting lineup against the Celtics on Saturday.

    Advice: In other words, he's still a game-time call, but he is on track to play. Babbitt would be starting next to Dennis Schroder, Kent Bazemore, Taurean Prince and Dewayne Dedmon. With guys like DeAndre Bembry back, we may see Ersan Ilyasova and Babbitt start to see their minutes fade. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 3:02 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha (knee) questionable Saturday
    Thabo Sefolosha (right knee soreness) is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Magic.

    Advice: Sefolosha was unable to suit up Friday night in Brooklyn. Jonas Jerebko started but played just 17 minutes. Surprisingly, Royce O'Neale logged a career-high 21 minutes off the bench. Ekpe Udoh saw 15 minutes of action. This is a situation to avoid until we have some clarity on the Jazz rotation going forward. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:18 am
  • Trevor Booker plays well in start
    Trevor Booker scored 14 points with five rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 27 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Kenny Atkinson seems 100 percent confident that he can roll out a starting lineup with nobody taller than 6'8". Booker has been effective when called upon almost all season, averaging 11.0 points, 7.2 boards and 0.4 steals in just 22.5 minutes per game before this showing. He is likely headed for around 26-28 minutes, so he'll be around 13 and eight in the short term. Rotoworld.com Friday, 11:17 pm
  • Paul Millsap scores 20 points in full line
    Paul Millsap scored 20 points with six rebounds, seven assists, two blocks, two steals and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.

    Advice: October was not fun, but Millsap is having himself quite a month in November. In his last eight games, he averaged 17.6 points, 5.0 boards, 4.1 assists, 1.6 steals, 1.8 blocks and 1.6 treys. His Atlanta offense and this Denver offense are night and day, but now he seems to have it figured out. If you bought low on Halloween, you're in for a treat. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:40 pm
  • Kyle Kuzma scores career-high 30 points
    Kyle Kuzma scored a career-high 30 points in Friday's 122-113 loss to Phoenix.

    Advice: Wow. He started this game 0-of-6 at halftime, but finished 11-of-23 from the field and 6-of-7 from the line with 10 rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. This was his sixth game of the season with 20+ points which is more than any other rookie, and there's no way that coach Luke Walton can justify taking him out the starting lineup with Larry Nance (hand) nearing a return. He doesn't get many defensive stats, but he's still a must-start player in all formats. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:35 pm
  • Myles Turner doesn't play down the stretch
    Myles Turner did not play down the stretch against the Pistons on Friday, making 3-of-13 from the field for seven points with five rebounds, one assist, three blocks and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

    Advice: He just didn't have it on offense while the Pacers were rolling with their unit without him in the fourth. Shockingly, Turner missed all 10 shots from within 20 feet in this game, so credit Andre Drummond there. Turner has kind of cooled off since his "I'm back" 21-point, 12-board game on Nov. 7, averaging 9.8 points, 6.6 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.4 treys and 2.6 blocks in those five. The blocks are still making his owners happy, but this presents one of the best buy-low opportunities for one of the hardest categories to add in fantasy. We still view Turner as an elite fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:57 pm
  • Tony Allen (knee) sitting out vs. Denver
    Tony Allen (knee) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: He was originally expected to play, but the Pelicans will continue to be cautious. Darius Miller has thrived in Allen's absence, averaging 17.0 points, 0.5 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.0 steal and 3.5 triples over his last two games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:21 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha (knee soreness) out Friday
    Thabo Sefolosha (right knee soreness) will not play on Friday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: The Jazz play again on Saturday vs. Orlando, so hopefully they are just resting him for that one. With Sefolosha out, Jonas Jerebko is looking at extended minutes and is worth a look if you need 3-pointers -- he's hit three triples in each of his last two games. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:54 pm
  • Dinwiddie, Crabbe, Carroll, RHJ & Book start
    Spencer Dinwiddie, Allen Crabbe, DeMarre Carroll, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Trevor Booker will start against the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: This is the same starting lineup as Tuesday, but using it against Utah is somewhat noteworthy. Booker has played very well and so has Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, so coach Kenny Atkinson just wants his best five out there despite Booker being so short for a five man. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:42 pm
  • Luke Babbitt, Mike Muscala are questionable
    Luke Babbitt (back) and Mike Muscala (ankle) are questionable for Saturday's game against the Celtics.

    Advice: Babbitt suffered back spasms on Wednesday and did not return. It's also worth a mention he did have back spasms in March, so perhaps the Hawks are extra careful with him. If he's out, the Hawks may wind up shifting Taurean Prince over to the four to allow DeAndre Bembry to play in his return. Tyler Cavanaugh could also be in the rotation after he started the second half on Wednesday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 1:50 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha (knee) questionable Friday
    Thabo Sefolosha (right knee soreness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. Brooklyn.

    Advice: Sefolosha was averaging 23.4 minutes per game in the three games the Jazz has played since Rudy Gobert (knee) went down. If Thabo is unable to suit up on Friday, Jonas Jerebko would likely remain in the starting lineup and see additional minutes. Ekpe Udoh would also see an uptick in playing time. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:04 am
  • Tony Allen likely to play on Friday
    Tony Allen (knee) is likely going to play against the Nuggets on Friday.

    Advice: Darius Miller has been in one of his best stretches of his NBA career, so it'll be inresting to see how coach Alvin Gentry wants to divide the minutes between Miller, Allen and Dante Cunningham. All three do not have much value in non-deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:26 pm
  • Kyle Kuzma scores career-high 24 points
    Kyle Kuzma scored a career-high 24 points with seven rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's been on Kuz control since Larry Nance Jr. (hand) went down in the first game this month. In November, Kuzma has averaged 16.9 points, 8.4 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.3 steals, 0.3 blocks and 1.0 treys in 35.1 minutes per game. The Lakers starters actually haven't been bad this month, so Kuzma could still hold his starting job once Nance is back. Besides his lack of defensive stats, he should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:52 pm
  • Julius Randle gets blocked five times
    Julius Randle made 2-of-12 from the field for eight points with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, three turnovers and six fouls in 30 minutes against the 76ers on Wednesday.

    Advice: The poor shooting line was not because he was missing with five blocks against tonight. He did not enjoy his time against Joel Embiid and was blocked by The Process three times tonight -- Richaun Holmes and Amir Johnson also got him once each. Randle is still doing damage with his role as the backup center, so he's still a hold in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:45 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic double-doubles w/ four dimes
    Nikola Vucevic posted his fifth double-double of the season on Wednesday with 11 points, 10 rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Vuc played 31 minutes during tonight's road loss, which is a great sign after he played 27 or fewer minutes in Orlando's previous three games. His 3-pointers have spiked this season but most owners would rather see their center blocking shots, and Vuc is averaging a mere 0.2 swats in his past 10 games. He's been a terrific overall value this year, of course, so we'll cut him some slack. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:44 pm
  • Tobias Harris cools off in defeat Wednesday
    Tobias Harris cooled off in Milwaukee on Wednesday, hitting 4-of-11 shots for 13 points, three rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: There's nothing to worry about here, as the reigning Eastern Conference Player of the Week has been terrific through 14 games. Harris credited the Pistons' offense for making it easy for him with "a lot more spacing, and then a lot more movement." His current top-30 valuation might be too optimistic, but not by much. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:06 pm
  • Myles Turner blocks three shots, plays 33 min
    Myles Turner logged 33 minutes vs. Memphis on Wednesday, finishing with 10 points on 4-of-8 shooting, five rebounds, four assists and three blocks.

    Advice: Turner hasn't been his dominant self since returning from a concussion, and he admitted that he's "not quite 100 percent." His owners may be growing restless, so this is the ideal time to make some discounted trade offers -- it's only a matter of time before he's back among the center elites. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:25 pm
  • Luke Babbitt (back spasms) will not return
    Luke Babbitt (back spasms) will not return to Wednesday's game against the Kings.

    Advice: Tyler Cavanaugh started the second half for the injured Babbitt. He went to the locker room in the first half, but he did return to action after that. Babbitt did check back into the game, but apparently he didn't feel well enough to continue. With him out, the Hawks may have to play Kent Bazemore at the four more, up Ersan Ilyasova's minutes, or shift John Collins over to power forward more often. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 5:50 pm
  • Tony Allen (knee) out Wednesday vs. Toronto
    Tony Allen (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

    Advice: This will be Allen's third straight game on the sidelines with the knee issue, and he's being listed as day-to-day. E'Twaun Moore and Ian Clark will likely be splitting his minutes, but that means very little in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:34 pm
  • Myles Turner says he's still not 100 percent
    Myles Turner said he's still not quite 100 percent after missing seven games with a concussion earlier this season.

    Advice: "I'm not quite 100 percent," Turner said Tuesday. "I'm getting there, but I'm not where I want to be yet." Since returning to the court, Turner has been averaging just 27.2 minutes a night to go with 13.2 points, 8.0 boards and 2.3 blocks per contest on 44.1 percent shooting. Nate McMillan has also been experimenting with different lineups, and because he hasn't played Domantas Sabonis much alongside Turner, Sabonis has been eating into Turner's minutes. That's not a trend we'd expect to continue, so now would be a good time to float out some buy-low offers to Turner owners. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:00 am
  • Trevor Booker scores 12 points in start
    Trevor Booker started at center on Tuesday vs. the Celtics and scored 12 points with eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Timofey Mozgov hasn't given the Nets much this season, so there's a chance Booker could stick in the first unit. He finished 5-of-10 from the field and knocked down both of his free throws, so put him on your radar if you could use a big. Keep in mind that the Nets are off until Friday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:02 pm
  • Trevor Booker will start at center on Tuesday
    Trevor Booker will replace Timofey Mozgov in the starting lineup Tuesday vs. Boston.

    Advice: Booker had missed four straight due to back soreness before returning Saturday vs. Utah. This will be his first start of the season. Booker did start 43 games in 2016-17 and averaged 9.8 points, 8.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists over 26.6 minutes per start. He's worth consideration as an inexpensive dart throw in DFS tournaments on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:46 pm
  • Tony Allen (knee) questionable for Wednesday
    Tony Allen (left knee inflammation) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. Toronto.

    Advice: Allen has spent the past two games on the sidelines, and it's looking like that number could hit three on Wednesday night. If he's out again, Ian Clark could see his minutes in the 20s, but that's not enough floor time for him to make a difference in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:43 am
  • Paul Millsap drains five treys in loss
    Paul Millsap hit 6-of-16 shots and a season-high five 3-pointers for 18 points, five rebounds, a steal and a block in 34 minutes of Monday's 99-82 loss to the Blazers.

    Advice: Millsap has been a bit disappointing this season, but has been Mr. Consistency in his last four games, scoring 17, 17, 16 and 18 points while averaging 5.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 1.5 steals, 2.8 blocks and 1.5 3-pointers in that span, shooting 44 percent. Millsap appears to be coming on and the fact he knocked down five triples is icing on the cake. Hopefully his slow start will be a distant memory in a couple weeks. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:09 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic scores 20 in loss to GSW
    Nikola Vucevic hit 7-of-13 shots and 4-of-4 free throws for a team-high 20 points in Monday's 110-100 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: The Warriors have been generous to opposing centers all season with the fourth most fantasy points allowed, so Vucevic took full advantage of their undersized frontcourt. He added five rebounds with four assists, one steal and two triples in 27 minutes, and he's still rolling right along with top-24 value in standard 9-category leagues. With Orlando looking like a playoff team, we see no reason to sell-high. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:02 pm
  • Julius Randle plays just 19 minutes
    Julius Randle scored eight points with eight rebounds, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Suns on Monday.

    Advice: After logging at least 21 minutes in each of his last three, Randle saw his playing time drop a tad in this win. He hasn't even played a minute next to Brook Lopez in the last five games and he's only played 15 minutes next to Andrew Bogut in that span, so coach Luke Walton hasn't really adjusted Randle's role after the Larry Nance (hand) injury. He's still a fine hold in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:15 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha scores 13 points off bench
    Thabo Sefolosha came off the bench and hit 5-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, two rebounds, one assist and zero steals in 22 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: He might get some starts with Rudy Gobert out with a leg injury, but Jonas Jerebko got the nod tonight. Sefolosha is a steals specialist and had five of them on Saturday, but came away empty handed in this one. However, the three 3-pointers were a season high. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:43 pm
  • Luke Babbitt hit four more 3-pointers
    Luke Babbitt started again for the Hawks and hit 4-of-11 shots (all 3-pointers) for 12 points, three rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes of Monday's one-point loss to the Pelicans.

    Advice: Babbitt has been starting for a little more than a week now and is averaging 10.8 points 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.4 blocks and 2.6 3-pointers on 46 percent shooting in those five games. He's been up and down like a yo-yo, but is getting 31 minutes a night, shooting the ball well and knocking down threes. He's worth a look in standard leagues as long as he's starting for the Hawks.

  • Tobias credits Lasik surgery for his success
    Tobias Harris explained why he's shooting 47.8 percent from 3-point range this season after shooting 34.7 percent in 2016-17.

    Advice: "The emphasis, really, is to get good raise on [the shot] … I also got LASIK eye surgery, which was able to help me get better vision," Harris said. I think it was the best move, and I’m glad we were able to get it done. I feel great with it." We've seen other players such as Chris Paul improve their shooting following eye surgery, so Tobias' hot start to the season is no fluke. Rotoworld.com Nov 13, 7:35 am
  • Tobias Harris leads DET w/ 25 points, five 3s
    Tobias Harris' strong season continued on Sunday with a game-high 25 points, making 8-of-15 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws in 37 minutes.

    Advice: He added with seven rebounds, one assist and five triples, and 3-point shooting has been a huge story for Tobias this year. He'd never been above 37.5 percent in his first eight NBA seasons, but is at 50.0 percent from deep through 13 games, which ranks fifth in the NBA (tied with Cory Joseph). He's on pace for the best fantasy campaign in his seven-year career. Rotoworld.com Nov 12, 4:17 pm
  • Tony Allen (knee) out Monday vs. Atlanta
    Tony Allen (left knee inflammation) will miss Monday's matchup with the Hawks.

    Advice: This will be Allen's second straight game on the sidelines, but head coach Alvin Gentry indicated that they're just being cautious with the 35-year-old veteran, so maybe he'll be able to get back out there for Wednesday's game against the Raptors. With Allen out, Ian Clark should see an uptick in minutes, but that doesn't mean much. Rotoworld.com Nov 12, 12:31 pm
  • Pelicans just being cautious w/ Allen
    Head coach Alvin Gentry said the Pelicans are just being cautious with Tony Allen (left knee).

    Advice: "He’s got a lot of years and a lot of miles on him," Gentry said of Allen. "There’s going to be little hurts and pains that may keep him out a game or so, but it’s not anything that I’d spend any time worrying about." After sitting out on Saturday, there's a good chance that the 35-year-old Allen will be back in the lineup on Monday vs. the Hawks. He's averaging just 4.8 points and 2.2 rebounds this season, so fantasy owners can keep ignoring him. Rotoworld.com Nov 12, 8:36 am
  • Trevor Booker back in action Saturday
    Trevor Booker (back) returned to action Saturday at Utah, finishing with 12 points, five rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot in 20 minutes off the bench.

    Advice: Booker hit 5-of-10 from the field and did not see to have any ill effects of the back injury which forced him to the shelf. It helped him ease back into action by not having to face the disruptive Rudy Gobert (knee), too. He'll likely continue to log 15-20 minutes per game off the bench, and his return did not affect Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, who still logged 31 minutes in the starting five. Rotoworld.com Nov 11, 10:18 pm
  • Thabo Sefolosha records five steals
    Thabo Sefolosha was in the starting lineup Saturday against Brooklyn with Rudy Gobert (knee) sidelined and he stepped up with nine points, nine rebounds and five steals across 32 minutes.

    Advice: Sefolosha did a good job with his quick hands, and his insertion into the starting five made sense since the Nets are a smaller team that likes to run. He did a good job at both ends of the floor and finished with a game-high plus-17 rating. It's uncertain if Gobert will need more time to heal, but Sefolosha might come off the bench Monday with a bigger Timberwolves team coming to Salt Lake. Rotoworld.com Nov 11, 9:58 pm
  • Kyle Kuzma goes for 21 & 11 in 42 minutes
    Kyle Kuzma notched his fourth double-double of the season on Saturday with 21 points and 11 rebounds, adding one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 42 minutes.

    Advice: This marks the most minutes Kuzma has played in an NBA game, and he recovered from a cold start to finish 8-of-17 from the field and 4-of-5 from the FT line. Shooting efficiency has been a big part of his appeal, and the defensive stats were a welcome sight. He's averaging 0.5 steals and 0.2 blocks this year, which he'll need to improve to reach his full category-league potential. Rotoworld.com Nov 11, 8:51 pm
  • Luke Babbitt scores five points
    Luke Babbitt scored five points with six rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

    Advice: The Hawks actually had to use Babbitt at the five because of John Collins getting into some foul trouble. Babbitt continues to see minutes around 30 with Ersan Ilyasova (knee) and Mike Muscala (ankle) out, so he does have some short-term upside in deeper leagues or as a streamer. Rotoworld.com Nov 11, 6:29 pm
  • Trevor Booker (back) available
    Trevor Booker (back) is available against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: He should see around 15-20 minutes as a backup four and even some run at the five, especially if Rudy Gobert can't play. Booker has some low-end value and this shouldn't affect Rondae Hollis-Jefferson much. Rotoworld.com Nov 11, 4:26 pm
  • Tony Allen (knee) will not play on Saturday
    Tony Allen (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Clippers.

    Advice: We've seen the Grizzlies rest Allen a heck of a lot for knee soreness, so this is not surprising whatsoever. Allen has been used as a small forward almost exclusively, so Dante Cunningham and Darius Miller could play slightly more. Plus, the Clippers go small a ton, so this should help Jameer Nelson get a slight bump. Rotoworld.com Nov 11, 2:00 pm
  • Trevor Booker (lower back) probable vs. Jazz
    Trevor Booker (back) is probable against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: Revenge game? Booker has been held out for four games for his back soreness, which led to a lot of small-ball lineups and Tyler Zeller to see some run. Booker coming back shouldn't really affect Rondae Hollis-Jefferson too much, but he probably won't be playing 39 minutes like Friday. Rotoworld.com Nov 11, 11:33 am
  • Myles Turner falls short of double-double
    Myles Turner posted 11 points while adding nine rebounds and three blocked shots in Friday's road win against the Bulls.

    Advice: The team experimented with Turner and Domantas Sabonis being on the court at the same time and Victor Oladipo said after the game that the combination could be "very special". The big man is playing well since returning from injury, averaging 13.2 points, 8.0 rebounds and 2.2 blocked shots per game over the past five outings. Rotoworld.com Nov 10, 7:41 pm
  • Trevor Booker will not play
    Trevor Booker (back) will not play against the Blazers on Friday.

    Advice: The Nets are going to have to go small a lot here with not much depth behind Timofey Mozgov. Expect to see some Rondae Hollis-Jefferson at the five with a lot of wing minutes available. Rotoworld.com Nov 10, 4:43 pm
  • Paul Millsap posts 17/7/5 line with 6 blocks
    Paul Millsap scored 17 points with seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and six blocks in 40 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

    Advice: He's back to being the Millsap we saw a couple years ago. The Nuggets played him at center in this game and he's really been racking up the stats lately. Over the last five, Millsap averaged 17.4 points, 4.2 boards, 3.6 assists, 1.8 blocks, 1.8 steals and 1.0 treys. That buy-low window is just about closed. Rotoworld.com Nov 9, 10:54 pm
  • Amir Johnson gets seven minutes
    Amir Johnson scored three points with two rebounds and one steal in seven minutes against the Kings on Thursday.

    Advice: He did play some minutes in the fourth quarter as he and Richaun Holmes battle it out for the backup center minutes. Holmes should eventually win the job, so there's very little incentive to hold Johnson in almost any league. Rotoworld.com Nov 9, 9:36 pm
