  • Wade Baldwin was signed by MEM on Sunday March 26. Rotoworld.com 34 minutes ago
  • Tyler Ennis scores season-high 14 points
    Tyler Ennis took advantage of expanded minutes on Sunday to post a season-high 14 points (6-of-15 FGs, 1-of-2 FTs) with five assists, four steals and three rebounds in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Ennis was a big winner in the rotation tonight as the only true guard in the second unit. He hit season-highs in nearly every category and benefited from L.A.'s unusual rotations in a blowout loss without Brandon Ingram (knee). We'll need to see a few more solid performances before approaching him as a fantasy pickup. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:53 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson OK after hand injury Sunday
    X-rays were negative on Jordan Clarkson's bruised fifth metacarpal on Sunday, and he returned to finish with 10 points, seven rebounds and six assists, going 4-of-16 from the field with one 3-pointer.

    Advice: Clarkson dropped a career-high 35 points on Friday and he seems to have avoided any serious injury tonight, although he was ice-cold after returning. "He has the ability to be so dynamic," Luke Walton said before the game. "He’s been one of our more consistent players." His long-term outlook is terrific, and barring a setback owners can also expect him to be ready for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:42 pm
  • Larry Nance confident in his 3-point shooting
    Larry Nance missed both of his 3-point attempts on Sunday, but he finished 4-of-7 from the field for nine points, seven rebounds and one assist in 29 minutes.

    Advice: "At the beginning of the season it was, ‘All right, I’ve got [an open 3-point shot], who else is open?’" Nance said before the game. "Now it's, ‘I’ve got it. Where’s the shot clock at?’ I’m confident in it, our team’s confident, the coaches have given me confidence. I’m ready to let it go." He's just 6-of-23 from deep this season and his owners shouldn't be eager for more long-range attempts, since his 53.3 percent shooting is a key aspect of his fantasy value. Better luck next season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:40 pm
  • Corey Brewer starts for Brandon Ingram (knee)
    Corey Brewer started Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (right knee), finishing with three points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Brewer might have played more if the game were close, but the veteran got a long rest with the score out of hand in the second half. He's not a fantasy option, even if Ingram misses more games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:38 pm
  • David Nwaba plays well in 29 minutes Sunday
    David Nwaba came off the bench on Sunday for nine points on 4-of-4 shooting with one 3-pointer, one rebound and one steal in 29 minutes of action.

    Advice: Luke Walton said Nwaba was "spectacular" filling in for Brandon Ingram (knee) late in Friday's game. Corey Brewer got the start in place of Ingram tonight, but the D-League call-up wound up playing more minutes in the blowout home loss. Nwaba's made 3-pointer was the first of his career, and he has a long way to go before earning a spot on fantasy rosters. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:37 pm
  • Julius Randle cools off in loss to Blazers
    Julius Randle cooled off during Sunday's lopsided defeat, scoring four points on 2-of-7 shooting with nine boards, two assists, one steal and one block.

    Advice: He played 27 minutes and this was a big letdown after Friday's huge all-around game. Such is life for Randle's fantasy owners, who can anticipate a bigger line vs. the Wizards on Tuesday -- in his previous 10 games, Randle was averaging 14.7 points, 0.7 threes, 10.4 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.8 blocks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:35 pm
  • Blazers win easily, tie Denver for No. 8 seed
    The Blazers earned their 12th consecutive win vs. the Lakers on Sunday, led by Damian Lillard's 22 points, four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, five assists and three steals.

    Advice: Lillard made 7-of-20 FGs and 4-of-7 FTs tonight, but he committed only one turnover in 30 minutes of action. The playing time barely topped C.J. McCollum (13 points, three assists, four turnovers) for a high among Portland's starters, as the lopsided score allowed coach Terry Stotts to lean heavily on his reserves. The Blazers are now in a virtual tie with Denver for the No. 8 seed, and owners can expect Lillard's best during Tuesday's crucial home game vs. the Nuggets -- Lillard said his team has to approach the game "locked-in like never before." Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:32 pm
  • Noah Vonleh grabs career-high 14 rebounds
    Noah Vonleh racked up a career-high 14 rebounds in 26 minutes vs. the Lakers on Sunday, adding eight points on 4-of-8 shooting.

    Advice: Vonleh posted 12 boards on Thursday vs. the Knicks and it didn't take him long to exceed that mark -- he could have gone even higher, but Portland's starters were reined in during tonight's blowout win. Vonleh is thriving lately and he's making the most of limited attempts on offense, but fantasy owners shouldn't rely on him in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:29 pm
  • Allen Crabbe scores 18 points w/ full line
    Allen Crabbe got hot in 29 minutes off the bench on Sunday, scoring 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting with four 3-pointers, six rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and zero turnovers.

    Advice: Crabbe tied his career-high with at least one 3-pointer in 15 consecutive games, and the return of Evan Turner (two points in 20 minutes) has done nothing to slow him down. Crabbe has six blocks in his past four games, which is fluky, and he's still just a borderline option in most leagues. That said, he's better in 9-cat thanks to his stingy 0.7 turnovers over the past dozen games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:25 pm
  • C.J. McCollum quiet in easy win vs. Lakers
    C.J. McCollum shot just 5-of-13 from the field on Sunday, finishing with 13 points, one 3-pointer, three assists, one rebound, one steal and four turnovers in 29 minutes.

    Advice: Portland has won three straight games and they're tied with Denver for the No. 8 seed. McCollum's struggles tonight didn't really matter because Portland had this game in hand early, and he could have played more minutes if it weren't a blowout. Expect a more robust line in a critical home game vs. the Nuggets on Tuesday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:23 pm
  • Corey Brewer starting for Brandon Ingram
    Corey Brewer will start Sunday's game in place of Brandon Ingram (patellar tendinitis).

    Advice: David Nwaba should also get a significant boost with Ingram on the sidelines, and we might even see Nick Young or Metta World Peace get a few minutes. This is a situation to avoid in the vast majority of fantasy scenarios. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:05 pm
  • Blake Griffin hits 6-of-11 shots for 17/6/4
    Blake Griffin shot 6-of-11 from the field to score 17 points on Sunday, adding six rebounds, four assists, one steal and a pair of 3-pointers.

    Advice: Griffin did his damage in 32 minutes and the shooting was a welcome sight -- in his past three games he was a combined 17-of-48 from the field (35.4 percent). The Clippers struggled to find him down the stretch, however, as their offense sputtered and they gave up a double-digit lead, resulting in a crushing loss that leaves them a full game behind the No. 4 seed Jazz in the standings. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:07 pm
  • Willie Cauley-Stein hits game-winner vs Clips
    Willie Cauley-Stein hit a game-winning layup with 1.8 seconds remaining on Sunday, finishing with eight points, a season-high 14 rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 33 minutes of action.

    Advice: Sacramento snapped a four-game losing streak in dramatic fashion, as WCS corralled a miss to give his team the late lead -- Chris Paul subsequently missed a jumper that could have won it, and the Kings went home with a truly shocking road win. Cauley-Stein is rolling along with top-75 roto value over the past few weeks. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:05 pm
  • Nic Batum drops a double-double
    Nicolas Batum scored 18 points with six rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Suns on Sunday.

    Advice: He was just 6-of-15 from the field and the missed shots continue to be a problem these days. In his previous games since the break, Batum made just 28.1 percent from deep on 3.4 attempts, which has pulled him down to a woeful 38.5 percent from the field. He's still doing plenty in the other departments and did record his team-high 15th double-double this season. Batum should hold his mid-round value the rest of the way. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:24 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) out Sunday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: This will be his second game in a row on the shelf. He's dealing with soreness in his surgically-repaired knee, so the 76ers are going to be cautious moving forward. Richaun Holmes has been a must-own player for weeks, but Shawn Long is on the radar in deeper leagues after he scored a career-high 18 points with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals in 19 minutes vs. the Bulls on Friday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:25 am
  • C.J. McCollum scores 32 points on 100.0 eFG%
    C.J. McCollum made scoring 32 points look easy during a 112-100 win over the Wolves on Saturday, making 11-of-13 from the field and all six free throws with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: Not bad on efficiency with a 102.3 true shooting percentage. Damian Lillard said McCollum is the best midrange player in the league, but McCollum said on the Blazers broadcast that he's the best "in the world." He may be right with C.J. way above league average in non-restricted paint scoring, midrange and on 3-pointers. For a guy who gets 48.3 percent of his shots on pull-ups, McCollum is vastly underrated as an elite scorer in the NBA. His fantasy owners certainly don't underrate him thanks to his top-20 value in standard leagues this season. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:24 pm
  • Damian Lillard scores 21 in win
    Damian Lillard made 8-of-13 from the field for 21 points with six points, eight rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Wolves on Saturday.

    Advice: The garbage time could've been the main reason why his three-game streak of scoring at least 30 has been snapped. On the other hand, Lillard does have a great efficiency streak still alive with at least a 54.0 true shooting percentage (TS%) in nine straight, totaling a pristine 68.3 TS% and a 35.2 usage rate in that span. He's arguably the hottest scorer in the league and is a big reason why the Blazers won't go away in the race for eighth. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:12 pm
  • Blake Griffin scores 15 points
    Blake Griffin scored 15 points with six rebounds, one assist, three steals and one 3-pointer against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: It was a big game for the Clippers and Griffin said having the tiebreaker over the Jazz could be important. Griffin also talked about how the Clippers will use the last part of the season to get better as a team, so that's an encouraging sign about him not getting rest. He's not playing his best, but his owners just have to keep rolling him out there. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:23 pm
  • Willie Cauley-Stein scores 12 points
    Willie Cauley-Stein scored 12 points during a 114-100 loss to the Warriors on Friday, adding four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 28 minutes.

    Advice: He hasn't quite lit it up, but Cauley-Stein is still getting it done in the starting lineup. In his last five, WCS averaged 11.6 points, 6.0 boards, 3.2 assists, 1.8 blocks and 1.4 steals. He's a little like Nerlens Noel and should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:07 am
  • David Nwaba scores career-high 10 points
    David Nwaba scored a career-high 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting vs. the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: Nick Young picked up another DNP-CD, and considering the Lakers gave Nwaba a two-year deal, it's clear that they want to get a long look at him going forward. He's more of a defender, but he played 26 minutes tonight with seven rebounds and two assists. He's worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues if he keeps getting this type of run, and it's worth noting that he was playing down the stretch of the overtime win. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:37 pm
  • Julius Randle scores 23 points w/ 12 rebounds
    Julius Randle lit up the Wolves for 23 points and 12 rebounds on Friday.

    Advice: He hit 8-of-14 field goals and 5-of-6 free throws in 34 minutes, adding three assists, one steal, two blocks and two triples in one of his best all-around games of the season. He's always been a great points, dimes and rebounds guy, but the lack of consistent defensive stats limits his fantasy upside -- he was averaging 0.5 blocks and 0.7 steals prior to Friday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:33 pm
  • Larry Nance plays 35 minutes in overtime win
    Larry Nance played 35 minutes in Friday's overtime win over the Wolves, finishing with 13 points on 4-of-11 shooting with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal and four turnovers.

    Advice: He looked great on both ends tonight and coach Luke Walton has been dropping some hints that Nance could eventually get a shot in the first unit -- Walton said it could happen "at some point" and also pointed out that he has great chemistry with starting center Ivica Zubac. If Nance plays well on Sunday vs. the Blazers, he could be an interesting flier with four games on the schedule next week. He was poked in the eye during the final minute of this one, but he stayed in the game and appeared to be fine. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:29 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 33, hits 8 triples
    Jordan Clarkson scored a career-high 33 points on 13-of-20 shooting with eight 3-pointers, five assists and two rebounds in 47 minutes in a 130-117 overtime win over the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: What a way to respond after he scored five points on 1-of-9 shooting vs. the Clippers on Tuesday. It's no secret that Clarkson is a high-volume shooter, but Walton said earlier this week that he wants him to find other ways to impact the game if his shot isn't falling. "He’s too good of an athlete. He’s one guy who loves to compete, but you can’t get locked in and focus on the fact you can’t make any shots," Walton said. "That’ll come eventually. Get into someone on defense, make some steals, make some passes, take a charge, do something." Clarkson has been a beast since the Lou Williams trade and should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:26 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) out against the Bulls
    Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not play against the Bulls on Friday night.

    Advice: The team will give him treatment on his sore knee during the game. Okafor's right knee soreness has been ongoing for most of the past 12 months and there's a good chance he misses additional time. Richaun Holmes should start and play big minutes as a must-start option in fantasy -- he's a strong DFS play, of course. Shawn Long should back him up with some Dario Saric at the five, as well. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:36 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor doubtful for Friday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) is unlikely to play against the Bulls on Friday.

    Advice: His knee soreness won't go away and coach Brett Brown made it sound like he won't have Okafor. "It think if you made me guess right now, it’s going to be doubtful that he plays," Brown said. If Okafor is out, Richaun Holmes should get big minutes as a starter with Shawn Long backing him up. Okafor isn't worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:49 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) a GTD for Friday vs. CHI
    Jahlil Okafor (right knee soreness) is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision Friday night in Chicago.

    Advice: Okafor got hit on the outside of his troublesome right knee in Wednesday night's the loss to OKC. Okafor was unable to participate in shootaround on Friday morning. All indications from the Sixers and coach Brett Brown point towards Okafor being closer to "doubtful" than "questionable." We will have to wait until later this evening for confirmation. If Okafor does not play, Richaun Holmes will draw the start and would see plenty of minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:26 am
  • Damian Lillard scores 30 points in win vs. NY
    Damian Lillard scored 30 points during a 110-95 win over the Knicks on Thursday, adding four rebounds, five assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.

    Advice: That's seven 30-plus scoring games in March to tie him with James Harden for the most in the NBA this month. Since the break, Lillard averaged 31.1 points, 4.6 boards, 5.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 3.4 treys on 49.5 percent from the field and 90.0 percent from the line. His Blazers are just 1.0 games behind the Nuggets for the No. 8 seed, so this will likely come down to the wire. Lillard has been the No. 2 player for total value in standard leagues since the break. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:04 pm
  • Noah Vonleh grabs 12 boards
    Noah Vonleh matched his career-high 12 rebounds against the Knicks on Thursday, adding four points, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

    Advice: He's actually making an impact on the stat sheet and for coach Terry Stotts. The problem is Stotts just has another weapon to use and make his rotation even more complicated. Most fantasy owners will just want to avoid this situation. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:50 pm
  • Blake Griffin scores 21 points vs. Dallas
    Blake Griffin scored 21 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, four turnovers and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

    Advice: He was coming off a mega dud with only 12 points against the Lakers on Tuesday, and still this line could've been better with only a 9-of-23 shooting line in this loss. Griffin's March has been underwhelming with only 18.0 points per game in his previous outings this month, so Blake just hasn't been right. The good news for his fantasy owners is that he still has two more games to go. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:38 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor plays 17 minutes in return
    Jahlil Okafor scored six points with two rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Thunder went right at him and Okafor continues to have a bullseye on him when he's out there. Okafor's right knee could be a factor for his subpar play, and interestingly today is the one-year anniversary of when he had surgery. The 76ers will probably manage him the rest of the way, so he's really not worth owning in standard leagues until he proves otherwise. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:36 pm
  • Nicolas Batum offers mixed back Wednesday
    Nicolas Batum finished Wednesday's game with 10 points, six assists, two rebounds and two steals, but he shot just 5-of-14 from the field with five turnovers.

    Advice: Batum may have tweaked his ankle during the game, but he didn't miss any time and we're leaving him off the injury report. The Hornets desperately need him to produce down the stretch, as they're still three games out of the No. 8 seed. They're trending up at the right moment, at least, having won three straight games after sweeping the season series vs. Orlando tonight. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:42 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) will start on Wednesday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) will start Wednesday vs. the Thunder, with Richaun Holmes coming off the bench.

    Advice: Okafor will be returning from a one-game absence, and his return to action will result in fewer minutes for Holmes. Okafor is good for some points and boards, but he typically doesn't offer much on the defensive end and turnovers have been an issue as of late. He's more of a deep league guy, while Holmes should be owned in all leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:08 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: Okafor injured his knee Sunday night and did not suit up on Monday. He will be evaluated before Wednesday's game to determine his status. If Okafor does not play, Richaun Holmes, who is coming off a monster 24-point, 14-rebound effort, will draw another start. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:14 am
  • Tyler Ennis returned to action on Tuesday March 21. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:20 am
  • Allen Crabbe plays 31 minutes in loss
    Allen Crabbe came off the bench and played 31 minutes on Tuesday, finishing with 11 points, five rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer on 4-of-11 shooting.

    Advice: Crabbe's not a must-own player, averaging just 9.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.8 3-pointers on 36 percent shooting over his last five games. But he's also averaging 30 minutes a night over that stretch and can get hot at any time. If he starts seeing his shots drop, he might be worth grabbing in case he's getting ready to go on a run. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:00 pm
  • Damian Lillard scores 31 in loss to Bucks
    Damian Lillard hit 13-of-26 shots and two 3-pointers on his way to 31 points, five rebounds, seven assists and four steals in Tuesday's tough loss to the Bucks.

    Advice: Lillard did his job tonight and C.J. McCollum was right there with him, hitting 9-of-17 shots and a 3-pointer for 21 points in the loss. The Blazers didn't get much from their bench and Noah Vonleh and Moe Harkless are generally lacking as starters, and the Blazers are still on the outside looking in at the playoffs, 1.0 games behind the Nuggets for the No. 8 seed. So this was a very tough home loss. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:51 pm
  • Report: David Nwaba to sign 2-year deal w/ LA
    David Nwaba is reportedly finalizing a two-year deal with the Lakers.

    Advice: Nwaba will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Clippers, but that doesn't mean much as he's averaging just 3.6 points, 2.0 boards and not much else on 48.1 percent shooting with the Lakers this season. The second year of his contract will reportedly be a team option for Los Angeles. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:04 pm
  • Tyler Ennis (shoulder) available to play Tues
    Tyler Ennis (left shoulder) will be available to play Tuesday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: Ennis tweaked his shoulder during Monday's practice, but it's not going to be something that forces him to the sidelines. That being said, Ennis has been a non-factor in the rotation as of late, so whether he plays or not will be irrelevant in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:19 am
  • Larry Nance could eventually start for LAL
    Larry Nance could eventually move into the starting lineup this season.

    Advice: Luke Walton confirmed on Monday that he will be rolling with a starting five of Jordan Clarkson, D'Angelo Russell, Brandon Ingram, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac for Tuesday night's matchup with the Clippers, but he wouldn't commit to using that starting group long-term. If Nance eventually finds himself in the starting lineup, that would likely shift either Randle or Zubac to the second unit. Nance can be a sneaky top-60 play when given the minutes, but as a reserve, he's not much more than a low-end option in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:13 am
  • Blake Griffin drops 30 points in win over NYK
    Blake Griffin dropped 30 points in Monday's easy win over the Knicks.

    Advice: He did all of his damage in just 31 minutes, shooting 12-of-19 from the field with six rebounds, one steal and one block. He also tied his career-high with three triples. Griffin didn't play in the fourth quarter tonight, so hopefully that means he won't be rested on Tuesday vs. the Clippers on the second night of a back-to-back set. The Clippers have four more games this week, so his owners should be in great shape. Rotoworld.com Monday, 10:08 pm
  • Nicolas Batum scores 16 points
    Nicolas Batum scored 16 points on 5-of-8 shooting vs. the Hawks on Monday.

    Advice: This was his second game back after a two-game absence due to a migraine headache, but he looked much sharper this time around. Batum logged 31 minutes and dished out six assists with one rebound, one steal and one triple, and his workload should be safe as long as a playoff spot is within reach -- they are currently 3.0 games behind the Pistons (No. 8) and Heat (No. 9). Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:06 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor, Henderson out Monday vs. ORL
    Jahlil Okafor (knee) and Gerald Henderson (rest) have been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Magic.

    Advice: Okafor tweaked his knee on Sunday, and while a sore knee doesn't seem like a very serious issue, it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him miss more than a few games given how the 76ers tend to handle injuries. With Okafor on the sidelines, Richaun Holmes will return to the starting five, and Henderson's absence will open up some opportunity for guys like Timothe Luwawu. For now, we'll be considering Okafor questionable for Wednesday's game in OKC. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:41 pm
  • Tyler Ennis tweaks left shoulder at practice
    Tyler Ennis tweaked his left shoulder during Monday's practice and he'll be re-evaluated on Tuesday.

    Advice: Ennis wasn't able to finish the scrimmage portion of Monday's practice following the shoulder tweak, so there's a chance he could be forced to the sidelines on Tuesday night. That being said, Ennis has been a negligible part of the rotation over the past three, so his potential absence from the rotation won't have any real consequences in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:15 pm
  • David Nwaba does well in 22 minutes
    David Nwaba scored seven points with five rebounds and a steal in 22 minutes off the bench Sunday against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: The Cal Poly product is getting a look for the Lakers, as they see if he is a player in their plans for 2017-18. He has a pretty decent stroke, but he doesn't do any one thing particularly well to help fantasy owners outside of the deepest leagues right now. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:25 pm
  • Corey Brewer grabs nine rebounds Sunday
    Corey Brewer scored nine points with nine rebounds and a steal in 19 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss against Cleveland.

    Advice: Brewer had his best game in months, but it is still unlikely to move the needle for most fantasy owners. He is nothing more than a depth play in deeper fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:23 pm
  • Larry Nance doesn't do much for encore
    Larry Nance finished with just five points and two rebounds in 14 minutes off the bench on Sunday against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Nance had a strong game on Friday with 13 points, four rebounds and four steals, but he was very quiet on offense and not nearly as active on the defensive end, either. Nance drew plenty of contact Friday, getting to the line for seven free throw attempts, but he didn't get to the stripe once on Sunday. Chalk it up as just one poor outing, or perhaps he was feeling a bit fatigued. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:20 pm
  • Julius Randle gets 10/7/7 in tough home loss
    Julius Randle finished Sunday's 125-120 home loss with 10 points, seven rebounds and seven assists, making 3-of-9 shots with one 3-pointer and zero steals or blocks.

    Advice: Randle blew up for 32 points on Wednesday, but in the two games since he's averaging just 7.0 points on 4-of-15 shooting. He's contributing more than enough in other categories to mask occasional shooting woes, however, and is perfectly positioned as a young cornerstone on a tanking team. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 9:18 pm
  • Willie Cauley-Stein bounces back nicely
    Willie Cauley-Stein scored 18 points with four rebounds, five assists and a blocked shot in 32 minutes against Spurs on Sunday.

    Advice: Cauley-Stein bounced back nicely after an ugly four-point effort in Oklahoma City last night, and he did it against one of the best defensive units in the league. Occasionally there will be growing pains with the rookie, but he is really trending upward since the trade of DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans and Cauley-Stein hasn't even come close to reaching his fantasy ceiling. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 6:57 pm
  • Damian Lillard erupts for 49 points & nine 3s
    Damian Lillard was unstoppable vs. the Heat on Sunday, pouring in 49 points on 14-of-21 field goals and 12-of-12 free throws, while tying the Blazers' franchise record with nine 3-pointers.

    Advice: Lillard has been awesome in March, helping the Blazers move to within one game of the No. 8 seed Nuggets, and he earned a ton of milestones with tonight's performance. He fell just two points shy of his career-high in scoring, matched his career-best streak with six consecutive games of 25+ points, and became the first player in Blazers' history to make 1,000 three-pointers in his career. His recent onslaught is carrying fantasy owners at the ideal moment. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 6:43 pm
  • Noah Vonleh hits 10+ pts in 3rd straight game
    Noah Vonleh logged 29 minutes during Sunday's impressive road win, chipping in 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting, seven rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: Vonleh has now scored double-digit points in three straight games, something he's never done before in his NBA career. The low-usage forward is getting it done thanks to extreme efficiency, connecting on 72.2 percent of his shot attempts during his double-digit streak. There are higher-upside guys on the vast majority of waiver wires. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 6:42 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee) travels w/ team to ORL
    Jahlil Okafor (sore right knee) will travel with the Sixers to Orlando, where he will continue to be evaluated.

    Advice: Okafor exited Sunday's game with the issue, which has plagued him all season, and just because he's traveling to Orlando doesn't mean he'll play vs. the Magic. Owners should check back for updates after Monday's shootaround. If he is ruled out, expect Richaun Holmes to soak up most of his minutes, with Shawn Long backing him up. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 2:21 pm
  • Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not return
    Jahlil Okafor will not return to Sunday's game against the Celtics due to right knee soreness.

    Advice: This is the same troublesome knee for Okafor and the 76ers will likely be taking it easy on him. His owners in fantasy may just want to go ahead and drop him. Richaun Holmes will pick up big minutes and should be owned in all leagues. We'll see Shawn Long back him up for owners in deep leagues. Okafor finished with four points and one rebound in 12 minutes. Rotoworld.com Mar 19, 11:22 am
  • Blake Griffin scores 23 points
    Blake Griffin scored 23 points on 10-of-17 shooting in Saturday's easy win over the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Griffin was returning from a maintenance day, so that explains why he still played 31 minutes in the 30-point blowout. He added eight rebounds, four assists and one triple, and his fantasy owners should be in great shape with five games on the schedule next week. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 8:20 pm
  • Nic Batum scores eight points in return
    Nicolas Batum scored eight points with 10 rebounds, five assists and three turnovers in 27 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

    Advice: He and Kemba Walker were very quiet to start this game and Batum did show some rust tonight. Batum missed the last two games due to a migraine issue, which was his first noteworthy bout with that ailment during an NBA season. His fantasy owners can go back to plugging him in as a must-start player. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 7:32 pm
  • Damian Lillard scores 27 points in win
    Damian Lillard scored 27 points with five rebounds, five assists, two steals and three 3-pionters in 34 minutes during a 113-97 in Saturday's win over the Hawks.

    Advice: It's Lillard time right now. Dame's confidence as a shooter is back with at least three treys in each of his last five games, averaging 32.8 points per game on 50.0 percent from the field and 97.3 percent from the line on his 7.4 attempts per outing. Lillard's Blazers will not go away and are just 2.0 games behind the Nuggets before the Denver vs. Houston game tonight. Lillard looks like he'll be a top-20 player going forward.

  • C.J. McCollum scores 22 points
    C.J. McCollum scored 22 points with six rebounds, five assists, two blocks, one steal and no turnovers against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Advice: That eight-point Tuesday dud is forgiven now and C.J. has been very effective in his other recent games. Even with that game factored into his last five outings, McCollum averaged 23.2 points, 3.4 boards, 4.2 assists, 0.6 blocks, 0.6 steals and 1.6 treys on 51.1 percent from the field and 94.1 percent from the line. He's elite and has been a second-round player this season. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 6:25 pm
  • Noah Vonleh posts a double-double
    Noah Vonleh scored 10 points with 11 rebounds and five turnovers in 27 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Advice: He may be playing his best ball of the season and turned in his first double-double of his third-year campaign. Vonleh is still just 21 and he did slide in the 2014 draft because he was raw, so maybe better days are ahead. That said, there's very little reason to add him in fantasy unless you're streaming on a light night. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 6:21 pm
  • Allen Crabbe scores 16 points
    Allen Crabbe scored 16 points with three rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers against the Hawks on Saturday.

    Advice: The Hawks struggled to pick Crabbe up in transition to help the Blazers pull ahead early. Crabbe's playing time hasn't changed too much with Evan Turner missing time, but he has hit the mid-30s more often because that's how coach Terry Stotts rolls. Crabbe has been a mid-round guy, but his upside isn't the greatest and he is kind of Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 6:10 pm
  • WCS has a bad game against OKC
    Willie Cauley-Stein scored four points with three rebounds, two assists and two steals in just 26 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

    Advice: It was a game to forget with the Thunder going right at him. Cauley-Stein played 36.5 minutes per game over his previous four, which is probably going to be tough to match going forward now that the Kings have Skal Labissiere and Georgios Papagiannis going. Still, Trill should be worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 2:56 pm
  • Nicolas Batum (migraine) will play Saturday
    Coach Steve Clifford said that Nicolas Batum (migraine) will play Saturday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: Batum had missed two games dealing with painful migraines. However, he had a CT scan of his brain on Wednesday which came back negative and apparently Batum will be able to suit up Saturday night. This is unexpectedly good news for Batum owners, as it was unknown when Batum would be cleared to return. At this point, there has not been an indication of whether or not Batum will have any minutes restriction on Saturday. Jeremy Lamb will get bumped back to the bench. Rotoworld.com Mar 18, 8:09 am
  • Larry Nance plays well in loss
    Larry Nance racked up 13 points with four rebounds, two assists, four steals and two turnovers in 28 minutes vs. the Bucks on Friday.

    Advice: The Lakers were missing Tarik Black (illness), so Nance picked up a few extra minutes as a small-ball center. He shot 3-of-6 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line, but he's been quiet this month with averages of 6.7 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.9 steals in his previous seven games. He's just a deep-league asset for his steals right now, but keep tonight's line in mind if Black misses more time. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 10:57 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson scores 21
    Jordan Clarkson scored 21 points in 38 minutes vs. the Bucks on Friday.

    Advice: He made his third consecutive start at point guard and got a few extra minutes with Nick Young and D'Angelo Russell getting ejected in the third quarter. Clarkson shot 8-of-20 from the field with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and four triples, and he's thriving in his new role with averages of 18.5 points, 3.0 assists, 2.0 rebounds, 1.0 steals and 2.0 triples in his previous two starts. Coach Luke Walton hinted before the game that his lineups aren't set in stone going forward and that he wants to keep trying out different combinations, but Clarkson should be owned in most leagues right now. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 10:50 pm
  • Blake Griffin not on the injury report
    Blake Griffin will return to game action against the Cavs on Saturday.

    Advice: He rested on Thursday night and the Clippers did not fare well in a loss to the Nuggets. Griffin's offensive output has fallen off this month with a 9.4 points per game drop compared to February. Griffin only scored 13 points against the Cavs in his last game against them, but he figures to have a better game on national TV. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 1:38 pm
  • Jordan Clarkson starting; SG is undetermined
    Jordan Clarkson will get another start against the Bucks on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Luke Walton said he didn't know who he would start next to Clarkson. We've seen D'Angelo Russell, Nick Young and David Nwaba get starts, but nobody has really stepped up. Walton also said on Thursday it would be "by committee" at guard, so it's likely to change on a nightly basis. Clarkson should be owned in standard leagues while Russell's fantasy owners have to hang tight for him to snap out of this brutal funk. Rotoworld.com Mar 17, 11:11 am
