  • Jayson Tatum returned to action on Tuesday January 16. Today, 12:47 am
  • Al-Farouq Aminu hits four more treys
    Al-Farouq Aminu hit 5-of-12 shots and four 3-pointers for 14 points, nine rebounds and a block in 28 minutes of Tuesday's easy 118-111 win over the Suns.

    Advice: The Suns had a big fourth quarter (39-26) but still lost by seven, while Aminu bounced back after a quiet game on Sunday, when he had just six points, seven rebounds, a block and zero 3-pointers. Aminu is bouncing around on a lot of waiver wires, but he's quietly averaging 11 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 2.2 3-pointers over his last five games. He's hit at least one 3-pointer in eight of his nine January games and if you need a big man who can steal and hit 3-pointers, Aminu seems to be coming on after a rather quiet second half of December. Yesterday, 9:33 pm
  • Mason Plumlee plays 14 minutes off bench
    Mason Plumlee moved to the bench on Tuesday vs. Dallas, playing 14 minutes with five points and three rebounds.

    Advice: He played exclusively as the backup center and didn't see any minutes next to Jokic. He was a deep-league asset even as a starter, so he belongs on the wire in most leagues even if this was a temporary move. Yesterday, 9:08 pm
  • Jayson Tatum quiet in 27 minutes
    Jayson Tatum (knee) was quiet in 27 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Tuesday, scoring 10 points with five rebounds, two assists, one block and two triples.

    Advice: Tatum missed a practice over the weekend after tweaking his knee last week vs. Philly, but all the test results came back clean. "It feels a lot better. I just tweaked it in the game in London, and the long plane ride it got a little stiff," he said. "We had a few days off of practice, I mean, off until our next game. So they just told me to rest the other day at practice." He's been one of the most consistent rookies this season and is flirting with top-50 value in standard 9-category leagues, and it doesn't sound like this knee injury is going to linger. Yesterday, 7:52 pm
  • Al Horford scores 14 points in loss
    Al Horford (calf) scored 14 points on 5-of-9 shots in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Pelicans.

    Advice: He's been banged up lately with a sore knee and sore calf, but he's had plenty of time off to rest and it's a great sign that he played 38 minutes tonight. Horford hit four 3-pointers for the eighth time of his career in the loss, adding nine rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block. The Celtics were bullied by Anthony Davis tonight and Horford will have his hands full again on Thursday vs. Joel Embiid and the 76ers. Yesterday, 7:37 pm
  • Anthony Davis posts 45-point monster line
    Anthony Davis hit 16-of-34 shots and 13-of-15 free throws for 45 points, 16 rebounds, two assists, a steal and two blocks in Tuesday's 116-113 overtime win at Boston, the third straight for the Pelicans.

    Advice: This wasn't a season-high performance for AD, as he went off for 48 points and 17 rebounds on Sunday against the Knicks. Davis has been crazy good for three straight games, as well as the whole season, and is averaging 43 points, 14 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 2.3 blocks over his last three. Unfortunately, he's also played 45, 50 and 41 minutes in each of those games and big minutes are not what AD's owners need from him. You have to wonder if there's a chance he sits on Wednesday night against the Hawks. The good news is he looks fully healthy and energized, and even rammed home a dunk after the buzzer as an exclamation point tonight. Yesterday, 7:17 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo double-doubles w/ 5 blocks
    Bismack Biyombo dominated the Wolves with 10 points, 16 rebounds (six offensive), two assists, one steal and five blocks in a 108-102 win on Tuesday.

    Advice: That's his 17th career game with five or more blocks and his second of the season (he also had five blocks on Dec. 26). Biyombo has been dominant over his last three games with 15.0 points, 12.6 rebounds and 2.3 blocks, and while he'll continue to eat while Nikola Vucevic (hand) is out, the Magic will have a tough decision on their hands around the trade deadline -- Vucevic is on the books for $12.7 million next season and could be a trade candidate with Orlando looking at another lost season. Yesterday, 6:30 pm
  • Mason Plumlee will come off the bench
    Mason Plumlee will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. Dallas.

    Advice: He was considered probable to play with a core strain, but the Nuggets will make a lineup switch to counter Dallas small-ball lineup. There's no word on whether or not this will be more than a temporary move, but this matchup is better suited for guys like Wilson Chandler and Trey Lyles. Yesterday, 5:55 pm
  • Nerlens Noel still targeting February
    Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said the earliest we'll see Nerlens Noel (finger) is in February.

    Advice: He had his cast removed in early January, but his timetable hasn't really changed. Carlisle said back on Jan. 4 that Noel could be playing by early February, so maybe they showcase him before the Feb. 8 trade deadline. He was out of the rotation before the injury, so a fresh start could really help him. Yesterday, 4:52 pm
  • Marreese Speights (personal) ruled out Tues
    Marreese Speights (personal) has been ruled out Tuesday's game vs. Minnesota.

    Advice: Speights is averaging just 13.3 minutes per game, so this doesn't make much of an impact in most fantasy formats. Aaron Gordon could log a few more minutes than usual. Yesterday, 4:01 pm
  • Al Horford (calf) will play Tuesday vs. NO
    Al Horford (calf) will play Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Horford was never in any danger of missing Tuesday's game, but now we have official confirmation. Go ahead and get him active. Yesterday, 2:51 pm
  • Pau Gasol (wrist) questionable for Wednesday
    Pau Gasol (right wrist sprain) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Brooklyn.

    Advice: Gasol told reporters on Monday that the nagging injury is hampering him. "I can't really bend it much," Gasol said. "It's been building up. I jammed it and it's been a little swollen." The Spurs are notoriously cautious with their injured players, so it certainly wouldn't be surprised if Gasol was sidelined on Wednesday. If Gasol is ruled out, Davis Bertans and Joffrey Lauvergne would likely pick up most of his minutes. Bertans would be the more attractive streaming option and could be worth a look as a risky DFS punt. Yesterday, 2:48 pm
  • Jayson Tatum (knee) will play on Tuesday
    Jayson Tatum (knee) is good to go for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Advice: Tatum went through most of Monday's practice and looked fine at shootaround, so we wouldn't anticipate any sort of minutes limit for him tonight. Feel free to get him active. Yesterday, 2:40 pm
  • Abdel Nader (illness) ruled out Tuesday
    Abdel Nader (illness) has been ruled out Tuesday's game vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: Nader is not a part of the Celtics regular rotation and has no fantasy relevance. Yesterday, 2:40 pm
  • Mason Plumlee (core strain) probable Tuesday
    Mason Plumlee (core strain) is probable to play Tuesday vs. the Mavericks.

    Advice: He's been playing through the core strain issue for over a month, and it's likely going to be something he just has to deal with for the rest of the season. Plumlee is not a viable fantasy option in most leagues. Yesterday, 1:08 pm
  • Draymond Green, Iguodala questionable vs. CHI
    Draymond Green (right shoulder soreness) and Andre Iguodala (calf) are questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: Green was icing his shoulder after Monday's win, and it's become a reoccurring issue this season, so it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him hit the sidelines on Wednesday night with a matchup against the 16-27 Bulls. The same can be said about Iguodala. If both these guys are out, there minutes will be divvied up between Kevin Durant, David West, Omri Casspi and Jordan Bell. Yesterday, 12:56 pm
  • Abdel Nader (illness) questionable Tuesday
    Abdel Nader (illness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game vs. New Orleans.

    Advice: Nadar is not a part of Boston's regular rotation. He is averaging just 7.7 minutes per game over 20 appearances this season. Yesterday, 8:17 am
  • Jabari Parker (knee) to return before ASG
    Jabari Parker (knee) said that he plans to return before the All-Star break.

    Advice: Specifically, "the first two weeks before the All-Star Game," said Parker. "It’s probably in that area. We just have to see how I keep doing with my pickup games." This is in line with recent updates and projections. All-Star weekend is Feb. 16-18, which means Parker is hoping to return in early February. Parker is worth stashing in deep leagues, especially if you have an open IR-spot. Yesterday, 6:52 am
  • Amir Johnson returned to action on Monday January 15. Yesterday, 1:30 am
  • Willie Reed doesn't do much in start
    Willie Reed finished with just two points over 10 minutes in Monday's start against the Rockets.

    Advice: Reed made another start with DeAndre Jordan (ankle) nursing an injury, but it was Montrezl Harrell and Wesley Johnson picking up more of the slack than Reed. He went for 14 points and 13 rebounds last time out to turn the heads of fantasy owners, but this performance is exactly why you need to exercise extreme caution outside of the deepest of fantasy leagues. Monday, 11:17 pm
  • Ryan Anderson starting to snap out of funk
    Ryan Anderson finished with 12 points across 25 minutes in Monday's 113-102 road loss against the Clippers.

    Advice: Anderson ended up hitting 4-of-9 from the field, including 2-of-6 from behind the 3-point line, while going 2-of-2 from the free-throw stripe. He also finished with four assists and he didn't turn it over once. After a four-game rough patch with single-digit point totals, he is averaging 15.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 3.0 3-pointers per game over the past two contests. He remains a decent 3-point specialist with a side of rebounds. Monday, 10:29 pm
  • Draymond Green just misses triple-double
    Draymond Green hit 5-of-14 shots and was 0-for-5 from downtown for 11 points, but also had a season-high 16 rebounds, nine assists and two blocks, just missing a triple-double in Monday's win over the Cavaliers.

    Advice: This would have been his third triple-double of the season and it feels like they're tougher to come by across the league this season. Green's not a dynamic scorer on a loaded Warriors' team, but that hasn't stopped him from being worth a second-round fantasy pick. Monday, 8:07 pm
  • Pau Gasol dealing with right hand injury
    Pau Gasol revealed after Monday's game that he's been dealing with a right (shooting) hand injury.

    Advice: "I can't really bend it much," Gasol said. "It's been building up. I jammed it and it's been a little swollen. I decided to play [Monday]." It sounds like Gasol's ability to play will be dependent on pain tolerance, but knowing the Spurs, he could certainly hit the sidelines on Wednesday in Brooklyn. If he does need to miss time, Davis Bertans and Joffrey Lauvergne would likely pick up most of his minutes. Stay tuned. Monday, 3:59 pm
  • Al Horford (knee) is probable for Tuesday
    Al Horford (knee) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans.

    Advice: Horford missed Saturday's practice as a precaution, but he was back on the floor for Monday's practice as expected. His status for Tuesday was never really in doubt, but we'll have another update after their morning shootaround to be safe. Monday, 10:22 am
  • Jayson Tatum (knee) is probable for Tuesday
    Jayson Tatum (knee) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics.

    Advice: His test results all came back good and it sounds like he's dealing with a minor knee tweak. Tatum went through most of Monday's practice and should be ready to roll on Tuesday barring a setback in warmups. We'll have another update on Tuesday morning. Monday, 10:21 am
  • Al-Farouq Aminu quiet in lopsided road loss
    Al-Farouq Aminu struggled in 21 minutes on Sunday, going 3-of-7 from the field for six points, seven rebounds, one assist and one block.

    Advice: Aminu came in averaging 33.0 minutes per game but was the victim of a slow start for Portland -- trailing by 14 points at halftime, coach Terry Stotts wasn't shy about mixing up his rotations in the second half. His shot still isn't falling (42.1 percent in January) but Aminu chips in enough elsewhere to be worth holding in most formats. Sunday, 9:16 pm
  • Anthony Davis nets season-high 48 points in W
    Anthony Davis powered the Pelicans to a 123-118 overtime win over the Knicks on Sunday, erupting for 48 points, 17 boards, two triples, four steals, three blocks and four turnovers in 50 minutes.

    Advice: Davis helped the Pelicans overcome a 19-point halftime deficit, hitting numerous circus shots (an example of one in the video below) while rocking a ridiculous 40.9 usage rate through the second half of action. He's now scored at least 40 points in his previous two outings at Madison Square Garden, and this was also the first time we've seen a player go off for 48 points, 17 rebounds and four steals since Michael Jordan did it back in 1990. That's some elite company. Sunday, 4:33 pm
  • Willie Reed double-doubles in 26 minutes
    Willie Reed was solid in a spot-start for DeAndre Jordan (ankle) on Saturday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-6 shooting to go with 13 boards, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 26 minutes.

    Advice: As we saw last season in Miami when Hassan Whiteside was forced to the sidelines for a brief period, Reed is capable of consistently bringing this sort of effort when given the minutes, so he could be someone to consider as a speculative add in deep leagues if you've got someone to cut. Just know that he'll return to being a negligible fantasy option once Jordan returns to the court, so we wouldn't advise cutting anyone with long-term appeal. Saturday, 4:49 pm
  • Jayson Tatum (knee) doesn't practice Saturday
    Jayson Tatum (knee) did not practice on Saturday, and he's scheduled for a precautionary MRI.

    Advice: Tatum tweaked his knee during Thursday's game in London, but we'll wait for the MRI results before making any proclamations about his status for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans. If this is something that requires Tatum to miss time, Marcus Morris would likely move into the starting five, and there would be more minutes available for guys like Daniel Theis and Jaylen Brown. Stay tuned. Saturday, 11:17 am
  • Al Horford (calf) doesn't practice Saturday
    Al Horford (knee) was held out of Saturday's practice as a precaution.

    Advice: Horford said he feels good, and with the Celtics off until Tuesday, we wouldn't expect this calf issue to be something that forces him to the sidelines. We'll throw him on the injury report just to be safe, and owners can expect to get another couple updates ahead of Tuesday's tip. Saturday, 11:10 am
  • Willie Reed to start at center on Saturday
    Willie Reed will replace DeAndre Jordan (ankle) in the starting lineup Saturday vs. the Kings.

    Advice: Reed had four points and three rebounds in 10 minutes off the bench Thursday vs. the Warriors. Thus, despite drawing the start, Reed is a would be a risky DFS or streaming option, as Montrezl Harrell tallied 25 points (on 11-of-12 shooting), six rebounds and a steal in 27 minutes on Thursday. Saturday, 11:03 am
  • Ryan Anderson hits four triples in win
    Ryan Anderson finished with 18 points, seven rebounds, two steals and an assist over 40 minutes in Friday's 112-95 win at Phoenix.

    Advice: Anderson stepped up with Tarik Black (eye) and Nene Hilario (knee) on the shelf. He hit 6-of-12 from the field, including 4-of-7 from behind the arc, while adding 2-of-2 from the free-throw stripe. The 18 points were his most since Dec. 7 in Utah. It was a much-needed solid shooting night for Anderson, as he had a four-game streak with single-digit point totals, and nine or fewer points in seven of his past eight. Friday, 10:57 pm
  • Draymond Green solid across the board
    Draymond Green finished with 21 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and a steal over 37 minutes in Friday's 108-94 win at Milwaukee.

    Advice: Green hit 8-of-17 from the field, including 1-of-4 from behind the arc, while hitting 4-of-4 from the free-throw line. He bounced back nicely after an egg-laying in Wednesday's game against the Clippers when he shot just 1-of-9. He has rolled up 10 or more rebounds in five of his six games in the month of January to make his fantasy owners happy. Friday, 10:17 pm
  • Anthony Davis back with a big game
    Anthony Davis (ankle) was not only back in the lineup on Friday against Portland, he erupted for 36 points across 41 minutes on 16-of-23 shooting.

    Advice: No rust here, as 'The Brow' was on fire. He grabbed nine rebounds while posting two assists and two blocked shots, and head coach Alvin Gentry was true to his word by not limiting the minutes of the big man. Davis did not have any ill effects from the ankle whice sidelined him for Wednesday's game. Get him back active in all fantasy leagues for Sunday's tilt on New York. Friday, 9:53 pm
  • Al-Farouq Aminu notches double-double
    Al-Farouq Aminu finished with 19 points, 11 rebounds and three steals over 35 minutes in Friday's 119-113 loss at New Orleans.

    Advice: Aminu hit 7-of-16 from the floor, including 3-of-9 from behind the arc, and he finished with a team-best plus-16 rating. In fact, he was the only Blazers player in double digits in the category. This was a nice game, but he has posted some pretty awful stat lines lately, too. In fact, he has yet to post back-to-back double-digit scoring totals so far through seven games in January. He is a bit erratic in terms of fantasy production, but remains a decent add in category leagues, especially 9-cat. Friday, 9:15 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo goes for 21 and 13 in loss
    Bismack Biyombo erupted for a career-high 21 points, 13 rebounds, four assists, two blocked shots and a steal over 33 minutes in Friday's 125-119 loss at Washington.

    Advice: Biyombo was outstanding, hitting 8-of-9 from the field and 5-of-6 from the free-throw stripe. The Zaire native continues to be a decent fantasy option when the matchup is favorable, as he fills in for the injured Nikola Vucevic (hand). He'll have his hands full next time out on Tuesday night when Karl-Anthony Towns and the Timberwolves invade Orlando. Friday, 8:36 pm
  • Anthony Davis (ankle) available for Friday
    Anthony Davis (ankle) is available on Friday vs. Portland.

    Advice: His ankle is feeling a lot better and coach Alvin Gentry said he won't have any restrictions, so he'll see his normal allotment of minutes as long as his ankle holds up. Check back after the game for an update. Friday, 4:13 pm
  • Gentry expects Davis (ankle) to play Friday
    Alvin Gentry said he expects Anthony Davis (ankle) to play Friday vs. Portland.

    Advice: Davis said he was feeling "a lot better" after shootaround, so it looks like he'll be taking the court tonight following a one-game stint on the sidelines. Gentry said that he won't have any sort of minutes limit if he plays, so Davis owners can feel good about rolling him out there for what should be an uptempo game against Portland. Friday, 3:19 pm
  • Anthony Davis (ankle) remains questionable
    Anthony Davis (right ankle) said he is feeling "a lot better" but is uncertain if he will play Friday vs. Portland.

    Advice: When asked how he was feeling and if he would be able to play this evening, Davis responded: "I'm feeling a lot better. We'll see when the time comes." Thus, it appears we are headed towards a game-time decision. If Davis is unable to play, Dante Cunningham would likely draw another start, with Cheick Diallo and Omer Asik seeing spot minutes off the bench. Friday, 9:17 am
  • Al Horford (knee) helps Celtics win in London
    Al Horford (sore knee) returned on Thursday with 13 points, eight rebounds and seven assists in a resounding comeback win vs. the Sixers in London.

    Advice: Horford missed Saturday's game with soreness, but that absence was precautionary and gave him five full days to rest, due to Boston's trip to London. He hit 5-of-10 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs tonight, with one 3-pointer, one block and only one turnover, and looked completely fine in 35 minutes of action. He'll get another long break, too, before facing the Pelicans on Tuesday. Thursday, 2:41 pm
  • Anthony Davis (ankle) questionable for Friday
    Anthony Davis (right ankle) is officially questionable for Friday's game vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said on Wednesday that there was a "good chance" Davis would be ready to go vs. Portland. We'll assume he's a bit closer to 'probable', therefore, but should know more after Friday's shootaround. If he is ultimately ruled out, expect Dante Cunningham to earn another start with DeMarcus Cousins being even more of a focal point offensively. Thursday, 12:43 pm
  • Jabari Parker about a month away
    Jabari Parker (knee) is about a month away from returning to action.

    Advice: "He’s doing great," head coach Jason Kidd said. "Again, he’s doing everything; he’s practicing, he’s participating with the Herd. So, he’s getting a lot of basketball under his belt. Again, I think we’re about a month away from having him back." Parker has already been cleared for full-contact 5-on-5, but the Bucks are being cautious and want to make sure he's in top shape before activating him. Based on this timetable, we should see him the week before the All-Star break. Thursday, 8:56 am
  • Amir Johnson (illness) ruled out Thursday
    Amir Johnson (illness) will not play on Thursday vs. Boston.

    Advice: This is Philly's only game of the week, so Johnson will now have a few days off to get ready for Monday's game vs. Toronto. Joel Embiid is going to play Thursday, but Richaun Holmes still has some streaming appeal with Johnson ruled out. Thursday, 6:09 am
  • Draymond Green (knee) logs 29 minutes
    Draymond Green (right knee soreness) had seven points, 10 rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes vs. the Clippers on Wednesday.

    Advice: He went 5-of-6 from the FT line tonight, but shot 1-of-9 from the field while missing all six of his 3-point attempts. This is the sixth time all season he's been held without any defensive stats, so that's nothing to worry about. Despite being a constant presence on Golden State's injury report, Dray hasn't missed a game since Dec. 20. Wednesday, 10:48 pm
  • Ryan Anderson logs 35 mins w/ HOU ailing
    Ryan Anderson went 3-of-8 from the field and 1-of-4 from downtown on Wednesday, scoring eight points with seven boards, one assist and one block in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Anderson is shooting 36.9% from deep this season, but that plummeted to just 31.1% in December. "My looks have been kind of sporadic, but that's the way the game goes," he said. "I just gotta be aggressive." The shots will start falling again eventually, but Anderson's role leaves him as little more than a 3-point specialist with a handful of rebounds. He should get a ton of minutes on Friday, however, since both Tarik Black (eye) and Nene (knee) have already been ruled out vs. the Suns. Wednesday, 9:44 pm
  • Bismack Biyombo solid against big frontcourt
    Bismack Biyombo finished with 14 points, nine rebounds, two assists and a steal across 25 minutes in Wednesday's game at Milwaukee.

    Advice: Biyombo was a very efficient 5-of-7 from the field and a perfect 4-of-4 from the free-throw line. He was not intimidated in the least bumping down low with the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo, John Henson and even Thon Maker. He handled himself with aplomb and is now averaging 8.8 points, 9.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocked shots per game over the past nine outings. Biyombo is making the sting of Nikola Vucevic's (hand) loss a little more tolerable lately. Wednesday, 7:36 pm
  • Jabari Parker targeting week before ASB
    Jason Kidd said he's hopeful to get Jabari Parker (knee) back to the floor the week before the All-Star break.

    Advice: Parker has been ramping up his activities recently, getting through full contact, 5-on-5 work with Milwaukee's G-League affiliate, and him getting out there prior to the All-Star break would be an impressive achievement. That said, he's suffered two ACL tears to the same knee over a three-year span, so he'll assuredly be dealing with a plethora of restrictions early, and back-to-back sets will likely be a season-long issue. He has enough upside to justify a stash in deep leagues, but know that he might not even be worth using in fantasy hoops until March. Wednesday, 4:37 pm
  • Anthony Davis out, Cunningham starting
    Anthony Davis (ankle) will sit out Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies, and Dante Cunningham will start in his place.

    Advice: While Cunningham will get the start, he rarely brings meaningful statistics to the box score regardless of his minutes allotment, so he's still not a great target in most leagues. Per, with Davis off the court, DeMarcus Cousins' usage rate spikes to 38.2, so he'll be a very attractive DFS target today. The Pelicans play again on Friday against Portland, and for now, we'll be considering Davis questionable for that one. Wednesday, 3:37 pm
  • Draymond Green (knee) available Wednesday
    Draymond Green (knee) is available to play Wednesday vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: As expected, Green, who was listed as probable, will suit up to take on the Clippers. Because both Stephen Curry (sprained right ankle) and Klay Thompson (rest) have been ruled out, Green and Kevin Durant will be popular DFS plays on Wednesday evening. Wednesday, 12:56 pm
  • Amir Johnson (illness) skips practice Weds
    Amir Johnson (illness) did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

    Advice: We'll go ahead and throw Johnson on the injury report for Thursday's game in London against the Celtics, but with Joel Embiid healthy, Johnson's playing status doesn't matter much. If he's out, Richaun Holmes could pick up a few extra minutes in the rotation, but that's about it. Wednesday, 6:51 am
  • Marreese Speights double-doubles vs. DAL
    Marreese Speights double-doubled vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday with 13 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two triples in 21 minutes.

    Advice: The Magic usually turn to Speights when they are in comeback mode and that was the case tonight. This was his first game with 20+ minutes since Nov. 24, so he's not worth adding in most formats. Tuesday, 8:22 pm
  • Draymond Green (knee) probable for Wednesday
    Draymond Green (knee) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Advice: He's been listed as probable the last few games, so there's no reason to expect him to sit. The Warriors do have a back-to-back set on Friday and Saturday, so they may be tempted to rest him in one of those. Tuesday, 5:07 pm
  • Anthony Davis (ankle) unlikely to play Wed
    Coach Alvin Gentry said that there is a "good chance" that Anthony Davis (right ankle sprain) won't play Wednesday vs. Memphis.

    Advice: Davis sprained his ankle on Monday night and limped to the locker room. He was ruled out shortly thereafter. The good news is that X-rays on the ankle came back negative and Gentry told reporters on Tuesday that the issue with Davis' ankle is not structural. Assuming Davis is unable to play Wednesday, Dante Cunningham and Cheick Diallo would likely see an uptick in minutes. Omer Asik might also re-enter the rotation. Tuesday, 11:01 am
  • Al Horford (knee) says he'll play Thursday
    Al Horford (knee) said he will play Thursday vs. Philadelphia.

    Advice: Horford sat out Saturday's win in Brooklyn due to knee soreness, but was able to get in a full practice on Tuesday and confirmed he is on track to return to the lineup on Thursday when the C's battle the Sixers in London. Horford is having a terrific all-around season, averaging 13.4 points, 7.8 rebounds, 5.3 assists, 1.4 treys and 1.0 blocks, while shooting 52.0 percent from the floor and 42.2 percent from downtown. Tuesday, 6:48 am
  • Al Horford (knee) practices Tuesday
    Al Horford went through a full practice on Tuesday.

    Advice: Horford did not play Saturday after experiencing some soreness in Friday's game. The Celtics don't play until Thursday, when they take on the Sixers in London, and then have four more days off after that contest. The fact that he is already practicing fully is a good sign that he'll be ready to roll on Thursday. We'll update his progress throughout the week. Tuesday, 6:38 am
  • Draymond Green fills boxscore vs. Nuggets
    Draymond Green (knee) notched 23 points, 10 assists, six rebounds, three blocks, two 3-pointers and one steal in 35 minutes during Monday's win vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Green's constant presence on the Warriors' injury report makes him seem like more of an injury risk than he really has been -- other than a mid-December stretch with five DNPs, he's missed just one game (Nov. 24). He also averaged 38.0 minutes in a back-to-back set in early January, which is a great sign, and owners shouldn't fret about his availability until the bitter end of the regular season.

  • Ryan Anderson quiet in 26 minutes vs. Bulls
    Ryan Anderson had another forgettable game on Monday, shooting 2-of-6 from the field for six points with two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Yuck. Anderson shot 37.2 percent from the field in December, including 31.1 percent from deep, and he's fared no better in four January games. With mediocre rebounds and a near total lack of assists or defensive stats to bolster his value, he's hurting owners in the vast majority of leagues. Simply put, there should be better 3-point specialists on your waiver wire. Monday, 8:05 pm
  • Anthony Davis (ankle) will not return Monday
    Anthony Davis (right ankle sprain) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: He finishes with 30 points (12-of-14 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), 10 rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes. X-rays came back negative but the Pelicans ruled him out very quickly. They are always super cautious with Davis, so he may undergo additional testing. We'll likely have to wait until the post-game interviews before we get another update. Coach Alvin Gentry doesn't seem to trust Cheick Diallo, so there are no speculative pickups for now. Monday, 6:54 pm
  • Draymond Green (knee) available to play Mon
    Draymond Green (right knee soreness) will be available to play Monday vs. Denver.

    Advice: Green played through the sore knee on Saturday, and he'll be doing the same thing tonight. He'll have the opportunity to operate with the rock in his hands slightly more than usual with Kevin Durant (calf) unavailable, so maybe he messes around with a triple-double in what will be a favorable matchup with the Nuggets. Monday, 12:24 pm
  • Al Horford (knee) traveling w/ Boston
    Al Horford (knee) made the trip to London with the Celtics.

    Advice: The Celtics only have one game this week and it's not until Thursday vs. Philly, so he'll have a few more days to get his body right. It's not clear if the Celtics will practice on Monday, but we should have an update no later than Tuesday. Monday, 7:52 am
  • Pau Gasol gets full line in road loss at POR
    Pau Gasol had 16 points, nine rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one 3-pointer vs. the Blazers on Sunday.

    Advice: Gasol hit 6-of-11 FGs and 3-of-5 FTs in 28 minutes of action tonight, his highest playing time since Dec. 26. This was the first game of a back-to-back set, however, and based on Pau's workload he could get a rest day vs. the Kings on Monday. With luck, the Spurs will clarify which veterans might be rested after shootaround. Jan 7, 9:33 pm
  • Spurs start Murray, Forbes, Slo-Mo, LA & Pau
    The Spurs will start Dejounte Murray, Bryn Forbes, Kyle Anderson, LaMarcus Aldridge and Pau Gasol on Sunday.

    Advice: San Antonio is short-handed tonight without Kawhi Leonard (shoulder) and Danny Green (groin), and they're also resting Tony Parker. Patty Mills was a big winner off the bench the last time this lineup started a game, while Forbes played 41 minutes, but there are no certainties when it comes to Gregg Popovich's rotations. Jan 7, 5:48 pm
  • Draymond Green probable despite sore knee
    Draymond Green (right knee soreness) is probable vs. the Nuggets on Monday.

    Advice: Green recently dealt with a sprained left ankle, and he's had back and shoulder issues this season, but none of them have been overly serious. The Warriors are playing it safe with injuries and the fact that Dray is 'probable' suggests he won't miss any time. Check for confirmation after Monday's shootaround. Jan 7, 5:39 pm
  • Draymond Green returned to action on Saturday January 6. Jan 7, 12:48 am
  • Mason Plumlee swats three shots in road loss
    Mason Plumlee finished with nine points, eight rebounds and three blocked shots over 17 minutes in Saturday's 106-98 loss at Sacramento.

    Advice: Plumlee was 3-of-5 from the field and on his way to a big stat line, but foul trouble limited his playing time. He is averaging 8.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assist and 3.0 blocked shots per game over his past three outings in the month of January. He isn't a great fantasy option in most leagues, but he isn't a bad big man in deeper formats. Jan 6, 9:58 pm
