  • Rudy Gay (Achilles) ahead of schedule
    Rudy Gay (Achilles) is out of his walking boot and said he's in the second stage of his rehab.

    Advice: He is doing some weight-bearing exercise and is doing some squats on his surgically-repaired Achilles. Gay continues to say he's ahead of schedule and is expecting to be ready to start the season. All this said, he's probably supposed to say this as he prepares for an important decision regarding his player option. Once he's ready to play, he will have several limitations on his playing time, so he's only shaping up to be a late-round pick next year. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:58 am

  • Danny Green (rest) will not play vs. Knicks
    Danny Green (rest) will not play against the Knicks on Saturday.

    Advice: It'll be his first game off since November and it comes on a non-back-to-back set. Green has played 28.5 minutes per game in March, which is by far the most he's played in a full month this season. With Green out tonight, Jonathon Simmons figures to get some extra run and could get some added value in garbage time tonight. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:44 am
  • Jaylen Brown fighting through 'rookie wall'
    Jaylen Brown admitted he is fighting to break through the "rookie wall."

    Advice: Prior to starting in place of Avery Bradley (illness) on Friday, Brown was averaging just 3.8 points and 3.0 rebounds in his previous five games. "Everybody hits a rookie wall," Brown said. "I think I've definitely hit it. If it's not physically, it's mentally. It's a part of the game. Everybody has to get adjusted. Nobody is superhuman." Brown bounced back with a solid game on Friday (nine points and seven rebounds in 25 minutes) but is still too risky of a fantasy option to trust going forward. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:19 am
  • Brandon Ingram returned to action on Friday March 24. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:00 am
  • Pondexter (knee) unlikely to return this year
    Coach Alvin Gentry said Quincy Pondexter (left knee) is unlikely to return for the remainder of the regular season.

    Advice: Pondexter underwent a third surgery on his left knee in January and has not appeared in an NBA game since the 2015 postseason. Gentry said that Pondexter "will be gearing toward the summer and next year, really." Pondexter should obviously be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:52 am
    Injured
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) plans to play Sunday
    Brandon Ingram (right patellar tendinitis) said he was sore after Friday's game but that he "can manage it" and will play Sunday vs. the Blazers.

    Advice: Ingram has been dealing with nagging tendinitis recently and was forced to sit out the second half of Friday's win over the Wolves. However, it appears it's simply an issue of pain tolerance, and he says he'll be ready to roll on Sunday. Still, it's tough to put too much trust in Ingram going forward, as the Lakers have no reason to overextend their prized rookie at the end of a lost season. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:29 am
  • Andre Iguodala scores nine points
    Andre Iguodala scored nine points with one rebound, three assists and no turnovers in 27 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

    Advice: He did go to the locker room in the last few minutes, but the game was over. Iguodala did not give much indication he was going to miss time, so he should be fine for Sunday. Although, the Warriors will likely rest him again at some point. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:10 am
  • James Harden scores 38 points with 17 dimes
    James Harden scored 38 points during a 117-107 win over the Pelicans on Friday with 17 assists, seven rebounds, one block, two steals and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: That's his NBA-high eighth 30-plus scoring game this month. Harden also scored or assisted on 77 points tonight, and he's currently on pace to set the record for that department this season with 57.7 points per game -- Nate Archibald has the record with 56.8 in 1972-73. He has scored at least 38 points in four straight and will get a big MVP-caliber matchup with Russell Westbrook Sunday afternoon. There will be triple-doubles. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:38 pm
  • Dario Saric scores career-high 32 points
    Dario Saric scored a career-high 32 points during a 117-107 win over the Bulls on Friday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

    Advice: The Homie Dario just will not let up. As he has all season, coach Brett Brown talked up his future Rookie of the Year. "When you can find someone that competes at his level and also has a selfless side, that's a hell of a package," Brown said. When the 76ers add so much talent to their roster next year, it'll be very interesting to see how Brown uses Dario. Until then, Saric's fantasy owners can just enjoy the ride. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:03 pm
  • Andrew Wiggins scores 36 points in loss
    Andrew Wiggins' 36 points weren't enough in a 130-117 overtime loss to the Lakers on Friday.

    Advice: He did all he could, shooting 14-of-28 from the field with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 44 minutes. This was his 11th game of the season with 30+ points, and if his owners can sneak by next week with three games, they get to look forward to the Wolves having five games from Apr. 3 to Apr. 9. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:49 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic scores 15 points
    Nikola Mirotic scored 15 points with four rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: He seems to have his minutes locked down, but it's never a lock when coach Fred Hoiberg is calling the shots. The Bulls continue to be attacked relentlessly inside and some of that is on Mirotic. He's playing well enough to be owned in standard leagues, but just know the bad games are coming. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:25 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) won't return Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee) won't return to Friday's game vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: This was announced during overtime, so he was probably on a minutes restriction -- he was icing his knee on the bench down the stretch. Ingram is dealing with tendinitis, so it shouldn't be a long-term issue and he will likely be fine for Sunday's game vs. the Blazers. The rookie scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with three rebounds and a triple in 30 minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:05 pm
  • Gary Harris scores an easy 10
    Gary Harris made all three shots from the field and both free throws for 10 points with two rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

    Advice: We saw Harris peak from a minutes and usage standpoint earlier this month, but now he'll go back to being his super-efficient self with minutes in the low 30s with the Nuggets having their firepower back. That's still totally fine with Harris posting early-round value since the break. He's just a fantastic player in reality and in fantasy. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:01 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari scores 21 points
    Danilo Gallinari made 2-of-12 from the field and 17-of-18 from the line for 21 points against the Pacers on Friday, adding 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two blocks in 35 minutes.

    Advice: He did say he was "a little sore" after the game. "It was just really good to be out there," Gallinari said. While he didn't shoot the ball well and on top of being sore, he said he is going to get back in the gym and work on his legs a little bit. Coach Mike Malone doesn't usually go light on Gallo, so expect him to play solid minutes as long as he's active. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:39 pm
  • Wilson Chandler scores 24 points vs. Indy
    Wilson Chandler scored 24 points with four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Pacers on Friday.

    Advice: After the game, Chandler said he felt pretty good and sounded healthy. He said his groin contusion wasn't too serious and he was just getting treatment. He also said he had an acupuncture guy and spent "countless hours" with him. Chandler doesn't look like he'll be leaving many holes in the scoring department going forward, so keep him going. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:32 pm
  • Paul George scores 27 points in loss
    Paul George scored 27 points with nine rebounds, three assists, three steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Nuggets during a 125-117 loss on Friday.

    Advice: After the game, George said he's OK with being a "lone wolf" in the offense when he's going strong. George has seen his usage rate climb to 33.5 in his last five games, including 36.1 in the fourth quarter. George has also been extremely efficient with a 77.7 true shooting percentage in that fourth quarter time, so the Pacers should be leaning on him big time. George looks poised for a big finish as the Pacers look to fight for playoff seeding. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:21 pm
  • Giannis scores 34 w/ 13 boards, five dimes
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 34 points with 13 rebounds, five assists, three blocks, two steals and one triple in Friday's 100-97 win over the Hawks.

    Advice: He was unconscious in the first quarter, racking up 17 points, eight rebounds, three assists, three blocks, one steal and a triple in 12 minutes. He was coming off a monster 32-point game on Wednesday and is now the first Bucks player with 30 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in consecutive games since Terry Cummings in 1985. The Greek Freak slowed down a bit in March, but he's rolling again and should finish the season as a top-3 fantasy asset. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Jaylen Brown scores nine points
    Jaylen Brown made a start for Avery Bradley (illness) against the Suns on Friday, scoring nine points with seven rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Bradley was in the hospital for his stomach bug, so it's possible Brown gets another start on Sunday. Marcus Smart is about as inept as it gets as a scorer and Brown is becoming a stronger defender, so maybe Brown can climb into the upper 20s next time out. He's still not a great fantasy option even if Bradley is out. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:09 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) will play Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee tendinitis) will play on Friday vs. the Wolves.

    Advice: With the Lakers tanking, Ingram's knee issue must be very minor if they are letting him play through it. With averages of 15.2 points (on 52.8 percent shooting), 4.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists over his last nine games, he's a decent option if you don't mind his poor free throw percentage. The Lakers will keep their same starting five of Jordan Clarkson, D'Angelo Russell, Ingram, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:55 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari starting, Plumlee to bench
    Danilo Gallinari (knee) will start and Mason Plumlee will move to the bench for Friday against the Pacers.

    Advice: The Nuggets will go back to their old lineup with Gallo and Wilson Chandler at the starting forward spots. Coach Mike Malone usually plays Gallo huge minutes and he has played well since the break, so expect him to hit the ground running. Gallo's return should take away from Plumlee and Kenneth Faried. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:20 pm
  • Jaylen Brown to start on Friday vs. the Suns
    With Avery Bradley (illness) sidelined, Jaylen Brown will start on Friday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Brown has started 17 games this season and is averaging 9.5 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 24.7 minutes. He worth a look as a plug-and-play in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:43 pm
  • Andre Iguodala not on the injury report
    Andre Iguodala (hip) is not on the injury report for Friday against the Kings.

    Advice: After missing the last game on Tuesday, Iguodala could be back for this home game. The Warriors are not on a back-to-bac set, but they really won't need Iggy as 18-point favorites tonight. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:47 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) still probable Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee tendinitis) was a full participant in shootaround on Friday and remains listed as probable for Friday's game vs. Minnesota.

    Advice: This serves as confirmation that Ingram is ready to roll on Friday. He's been putting up solid numbers of late. Ingram has scored in double figures in each of the Lakers last nine games. He is averaging 15.2 points (on 52.8 percent shooting), 4.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists during this current stretch. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:03 am
  • Gallinari (knee) says he will play Friday
    Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) said he will play Friday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Gallinari, who has missed four straight games, has clearly been inching closer to a return over the last few days. With Gallo back in the mix, the Nuggets will have their full complement of frontcourt players for the first time in quite a while. This will present a welcomed dilemma for coach Mike Malone on Friday. It will be interesting to see how Malone divvies up minutes amongst Gallinari, Wilson Chandler, Kenneth Faried, Mason Plumlee, Will Barton and Juan Hernangomez. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:11 am
  • Nikola Mirotic determined to salvage season
    Nikola Mirotic said he is determined to salvage this season with a strong finish.

    Advice: "All season it was going a little bit up and down, but it's not how you start a season, it's how you finish it," Mirotic said. "For me, it's very important to have a strong finish." He is coming off a season-high 28 points on Wednesday, but fantasy owners have learned the hard way that it is perilous to trust Mirotic. He has not scored more than 15 points in consecutive games since the third and fourth games of the season. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:40 am
  • Danny Green vanishes in 22 minutes Thursday
    Danny Green disappeared vs. Memphis on Thursday with four points, two assists, one turnover and no other stats to his credit in 22 minutes.

    Advice: We're more than 85 percent through with the regular season, so anyone owning Green should be inured to occasional duds. He's not worth owning in most points leagues, but continues to eke out value in most roto formats. Owners should at least be spared DNP-CDs given his modest playing time and the Spurs' continued pursuit of the No. 1 seed. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:47 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari (knee) questionable vs. Indy
    Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) has been upgraded to questionable for Friday against the Pacers.

    Advice: He's missed the last four games, but Gallinari at least had a chance to play on Wednesday. If Gallinari does make it back, coach Mike Malone will have a tough time getting everyone minutes. Wilson Chandler played mostly SF on Wednesday, which allowed Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee to hold down the minutes at the four. Gallo's return would also take minutes from Will Barton. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:40 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) probable Friday
    Brandon Ingram (knee tendinitis) is probable to play against the Wolves on Friday.

    Advice: He did not finish practice due to right patella tendinitis. Ingram had some tendinitis in his right knee back in October, but the rookie has been fairly healthy besides that. In other news, he's starting to be more involved in the offense lately, averaging 16.4 points per game over his last five. He's worth a look in standard leagues while he's playing well. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:34 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 32 points in win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 32 points in a 116-98 win at Sacramento on Wednesday, adding 13 rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block, one 3-pointer and no turnovers.

    Advice: It's just the second time this month he's hit the 30-point mark, and Antetokounmpo scored at least 20 points in just two of his previous six games. The Bucks finally had their six-game road trip end and they'll be heading back home this weekend. Antetokounmpo is much better at home with a 54.0 field goal percentage with better averages in points, boards, steals, blocks and threes at home compared to being on the road. After a down couple weeks, Giannis should go back to being a top-three guy going forward. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:24 pm
  • Gary Harris racks up efficient 21-point line
    Gary Harris had another strong game during Wednesday's win vs. Cleveland, scoring 21 points on 8-of-14 shooting with three 3-pointers, four assists and three rebounds.

    Advice: The Nuggets took it to the Cavs tonight, racking up 126 points on 53.1 percent shooting, and Harris got his slice of the cake. In his past four games he's averaging 21.5 points on 56.6 percent shooting, 2.5 triples, 3.3 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.3 steals. Despite being perpetually banged up to start the season, Harris was worth the wait. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:05 pm
  • Wilson Chandler (groin) plays 41 minutes
    Wilson Chandler (groin) returned to the starting lineup on Wednesday, making 8-of-14 shots to score 18 points with one 3-pointer, five boards, three assists and one steal.

    Advice: Chandler had missed the past four games, but he sure didn't appear rusty while playing a game-high 41 minutes tonight. He was slumping offensively prior to the injury, and it looks like the extended rest could lead to renewed efficiency over Denver's final 11 games. Make sure he's not floating on your waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:01 pm
  • Paul George scores 37 points in loss to BOS
    Paul George scored 37 points in a 109-100 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and five 3-pointers.

    Advice: After a down February with only 17.8 points per game, George is on a roll in March. Even before this explosion, he was averaging 25.7 points, 7.7 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.1 steals and 3.0 treys in his previous 10 outings. George gets another friendly matchup against Denver on Friday, so he may be flirting with 40 for that game, as well. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:09 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic scores 28 pts on 12-of-18 FGs
    Nikola Mirotic went off for a season-high 28 points on Wednesday, going 12-of-15 from the field with four 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and just one turnover in 39 minutes.

    Advice: We got the 'good' Mirotic tonight, as opposed to the guy who shot a combined 14-of-42 from the field (33.3 percent) in his previous four games. He's averaging just 4.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.5 steals and 0.9 blocks in March, while shooting 37.0 percent from the field. Tonight's game is a vivid reminder of his upside, but as every former Mirotic owner already knows, he's wildly inconsistent. Caveat emptor. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:40 pm
  • Wilson Chandler (groin) will play vs. Cavs
    Wilson Chandler (groin) will play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

    Advice: He needed almost two weeks to recover from a groin contusion. Chandler has dealt with a lot of groin injuries in his career, so the Nuggets could ease him back into his role. It'll be interesting to see where he fits in with coach Mike Malone liking the Mason Plumlee starting lineup. Chandler is worth owning, but his upside is capped. Kenneth Faried may also lose minutes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:25 pm
  • Chandler (groin) expects to play Wednesday
    Wilson Chandler (groin) was able to participate in shootaround on Wednesday and is expected to play Wednesday night vs. the Cavs.

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

    Advice: This will be the fourth straight game Gallo has missed. Fortunately for the Nuggets, both Wilson Chandler (groin) and Darrell Arthur (knee) are expected to return on Wednesday night. It is unknown if Juancho Hernangomez will draw another start in place of Gallinari. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:18 am
  • Malone 'hopeful' Gallo and Chandler play Wed
    Coach Michael Malone said that he is "hopeful" that Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Wilson Chandler (groin) will play Wednesday vs. the Cavs.

    Advice: "Hopeful is the word I’d use," Malone said on Monday night. "We’ll have to wait and see how their continued rehabs go and how they’re feeling. For both of those guys it comes down to whether they’re comfortable enough and confident enough to go out there and play at a high level." Gallinari is currently listed as doubtful in the game notes, while Chandler is questionable. We should receive a reliable update after the Nuggets shootaround Wednesday morning. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:08 am
  • Brandon Ingram scores 21 points in 40 minutes
    Brandon Ingram scored 21 points in 40 minutes in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Clippers.

    Advice: This was his second game of the season with 20+ points and he finished one point shy of his career high. He added five rebounds, three assists, two steals and two triples, and it looks like he's going to make some noise in the final few weeks of the season. Over the last five games, he's averaging 16.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 triples on 53.0 percent shooting. However, he's still struggling from the free throw line, hitting just 3-of-8 FTAs in this one. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:51 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 22 in big win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 8-of-21 shots for 22 points, eight rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks in 36 minutes of Tuesday's 93-90 win over the Blazers.

    Advice: Giannis tweaked an ankle on Saturday, but was never really in jeopardy of missing this game. This was a huge win for the Bucks, who now sit just 1/2 game in front of the No. 8 seeded Heat. This is good news for his owners, as the Bucks are going to need everything he has to offer in order to ensure the Bucks make the playoffs. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:05 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic scores eight points
    Nikola Mirotic scored eight points on 2-of-7 shooting vs. the Raptors on Tuesday.

    Advice: That's two duds in a row after his incredible three-game stretch. Mirotic is as streaky as they come, so he's going to a boom-or-bust fantasy option the rest of the way. The good news for his owners is that Bobby Portis (nine points in 21 minutes) wasn't much better. Mirotic added two rebounds, two assists and two triples in 26 minutes. The Bulls play three more times this week. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:00 pm
  • Antetokounmpo (ankle) starting vs. Blazers
    Giannis Antetokounmpo (ankle) is starting vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

    Advice: He tweaked his right ankle while blocking Draymond Green's shot on Saturday, but wasn't listed on the injury report and should be fine. We'll let you know how he fares after the game. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:00 pm
  • Danilo Gallinari (knee) doubtful Wednesday
    Danilo Gallinari (knee) is being listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

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

    Advice: Chandler has missed the past four games, but he said on Monday that he was shooting to return on Wednesday night. Owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but if Chandler is able to return to action, there will be less opportunity for guys like Juan Hernangomez, Kenneth Faried and Mason Plumlee. Jamal Murray's usage could also suffer a slight hit with Chandler active. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:11 pm
  • Andre Iguodala (hip) ruled out Tuesday
    Andre Iguodala (left hip strain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Mavs.

    Advice: This is the first we've heard of a hip injury for Iggy. We should get an update on its severity soon. Iguodala has missed a few games to rest this season but has been remarkably healthy all year long. With Kevin Durant (knee) already sidelined, this leaves the Warriors a bit thin at small forward. Patrick McCaw and Matt Barnes will both see an uptick in minutes, but it would be difficult to place too much trust in either player. Daily Slant: With Durant and Iguodala off the floor this season, Klay Thompson leads the Warriors in usage at 32.2%, and produces at a 1.17 FPPM clip compared to a 1.11 FPPM mark for back-court mate Stephen Curry. Ian Clark carries a considerably higher usage rate (25.6%) than either Matt Barnes (17.0%) or Patrick McCaw (15.2%) in that split, but targeting any of those three players is best left for GPP play. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:51 am
  • Giannis tweaks ankle in Saturday's loss
    Giannis Antetokounmpo tweaked his right ankle while blocking Draymond Green's shot on Saturday and immediately left the game.

    Advice: He scored just nine points in the blowout loss and played 31 minutes, but the injury doesn't appear to be serious. We expect him to play on Tuesday night, but owners of the Greek Freak should watch for injury updates prior to game time in order to be certain he's playing tonight. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:08 am
  • James Harden does his usual thing
    James Harden scored a game-high 39 points with 11 assists, seven rebounds, four steals and four 3-pointers in Monday's win against the Nuggets.

    Advice: The Beard has 38 or more points in three straight games and four of his past five outings. He has managed three or more 3-pointers in five of his past six contests while rolling up two or more steals in four straight and six of the past seven. Harden continues to post huge fantasy totals and the Rockets will not rest their players until they're locked into a playoff seed, so the good times will continue to roll. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:34 pm
  • Gary Harris takes part in a little thievery
    Gary Harris hit 10-of-16 from the floor to finish with a team-high 28 points Monday in Houston and he added four assists and three steals.

    Advice: The former Michigan State standout has averaged 20.2 points, 3.8 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 2.0 steals per game over his past five outings. He is also working on a streak with at least one 3-pointer in eight straight outings, while connecting for a triple in 19 of his past 20 contests. Harris has really emerged as a fantasy asset, especially in rotisserie formats. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:11 pm
  • Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) out Monday
    Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) will not play on Monday vs. the Rockets.

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

    Advice: This is his fourth game in a row on the shelf, but both Chandler and Gallo are hoping to return on Wednesday vs. the Cavaliers. If he is able to play vs. the Cavs, that means his owners would still get him for three games. To be clear, he's still a very risky start in weekly formats. Will Barton, Juancho Hernangomez and Jamal Murray will continue to get a bump in value until Chandler and Gallo are able to return. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:07 am
  • Brandon Ingram has 18 pts w/ supporting stats
    Brandon Ingram scored 18 points on 8-of-15 shooting during Sunday's tough home loss, adding six rebounds, one assist, one block, and just one turnover in 40 minutes.

    Advice: Ingram is finally making some noise for fantasy purposes. He's shooting 39.0 percent on the season, but in an expanded role in March he's averaged 12.3 points on 50.6 percent shooting, 0.8 threes, 3.9 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.8 blocks. The supporting stats are tolerable, but he's also committing 2.6 turnovers while making under half of his free throw attempts. Plan accordingly. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:36 pm
  • Dario Saric scores 23 points in win vs. BOS
    Dario Saric continued his Rookie of the Year campaign during a 105-99 win over the Celtics on Sunday, scoring 23 points with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He should have ROY locked up right now. The Homie Dario was off to a bad start in this game and made just 1-of-6 from the field to start, but he carried the 76ers late and attacked the basket. Saric just drops big lines almost every night since the deadline, averaging 19.3 points, 8.3 boards, 4.6 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.5 blocks and 1.4 treys in his previous games since the break. He is going to be a league-winning asset for a lot fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 2:18 pm
  • Jaylen Brown plays just 12 minutes
    Jaylen Brown scored two points with two rebounds in 12 minutes against the 76ers on Sunday.

    Advice: Terry Rozier was in a good groove on the offensive end and the Celtics were trailing, so Brown didn't pick up many minutes today. His defense is beyond his years in his rookie season and coach Brad Stevens puts him in all sorts of spots, but the fantasy value still isn't there yet. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 12:58 pm
  • Wilson Chandler questionable for Monday
    Wilson Chandler (groin) is questionable for Monday against the Rockets.

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

    Advice: This is encouraging news after both players missed multiple games with their injuries. If Gallinari does return, that should take minutes from Will Barton and Juancho Hernangomez. It could also take away from Jamal Murray and Jameer Nelson because Murray likely wouldn't play as much SG. Hopefully, the Nuggets provide an update on Gallo Monday afternoon. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:05 am
  • Andre Iguodala scores 15 off bench
    Andre Iguodala scored 15 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

    Advice: He may be one of the sneakiest players in fantasy right now with fourth-round value since the break. Iguodala does a little bit of everything, he's making his free throws at a reasonable rate and his 1.5 steals are top notch for a waiver add. Iggy should hold value for at least a couple weeks, but beware of some possible rest. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:45 pm
  • Giannis Anteotokounmpo gets held to 9 points
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored nine points during a blowout 117-92 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding three rebounds, three assists, three blocks and two steals in 31 minutes.

    Advice: The Warriors know how to defend drivers as well as just about anyone and Antetokounmpo got a little too much Draymond Green today. He came into this game with a 53.9 field goal percentage in March and he continues to flirt with his two steals and two blocks per game. His fantasy owners will have a big advantage next week with the Bucks suiting up for four games. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:42 pm
  • James Harden scores 40 in triple-double
    James Harden had another triple-double against the Nuggets during a 109-105 win on Saturday, scoring 40 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, two steals, eight turnovers and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

    Advice: That extends his NBA record seven 40-point triple-doubles in one season. Harden also has four consecutive triple-doubles, and it does help he's camping out under the rim more often these days. The Rockets are not expected to rest their players until they are locked in to their seed to allow them to grow as a team and develop chemistry. That is music to the ears of Harden fantasy owners. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:31 pm
  • Gary Harris scores 17 points vs. Rockets
    Gary Harris scored 17 points with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

    Advice: He had one of the toughest jobs in the NBA tonight, guarding James Harden for most of his minutes. Harris is being a bigger part of the offense now with an increase in usage while he's also running the offense more. He continues to be an early-round player since the break, so keep him rolling with four games next week. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:04 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic scores five points in start
    Nikola Mirotic scored five points with four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes during his start against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: Typical Mirotic. He remains one of the most inconsistent players in the NBA, so flopping in the start tonight is not a surprise at all. Speaking of surprises, Mirotic said he was surprised when he found out he was starting today. He's worth a pickup, but anyone with a short fuse on frustrating players may just want to sit this one out. The Bulls do need scoring, though. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:04 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic starting over Bobby Portis
    Nikola Mirotic will start over Bobby Portis on Saturday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: He's certainly earned it with averages of 17.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.7 blocks and 3.3 triples over his last three games. Consistency has always been his biggest issue, but hopefully he can keep his momentum going tonight. He clearly has the hot hand right now and should be deployed in standard leagues. Portis can be dropped. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:20 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo scores 26 points in win
    Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 26 points before fouling out of Friday's 107-103 win over the Lakers.

    Advice: He fouled out of a game for the fourth time this season, but at least this time he fouled out in the final minute. Giannis shot 11-of-16 from the field in 35 minutes, adding eight rebounds, five assists, two blocks, one triple and four turnovers. The Bucks have won eight out of their last nine games and are seventh in the East, so the Greek Freak will feast the rest of the way with four games on the schedule in each of the next two weeks. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:18 pm
  • James Harden drops 41-14-11 line in loss
    James Harden had no help in a 128-112 loss in New Orleans on Friday, scoring 41 points with 14 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

    Advice: Nobody else in the starting lineup scored more than eight points for the Rockets in this blowout loss. Harden played the entire third quarter and may have played the entire fourth, but the Rockets were just too far behind and coach Mike D'Antoni pulled the plug. This makes sense for the Rockets because they'll have to play in Denver on Saturday. Harden set the franchise record for most assists in a season, and he did it with almost a month to spare. He also has the most 40-point triple-doubles in a single season with six. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:49 pm
  • Andrew Wiggins scores 26 points
    Andrew Wiggins scored 26 points in 39 minutes vs. the Heat on Friday.

    Advice: He got off to a hot start with 13 points in the first quarter and finished 10-of-23 from the field with three rebounds, one steal, one block and one triple. Wiggins has come down to earth after averaging 28.8 points per game in February, as he's now averaging 19.2 points through eight games in March. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, the Wolves play three games in each of the next two weeks after Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans. The Wolves do have five games from Apr. 3 to Apr. 9, though. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:09 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic scores 15 points in loss
    Nikola Mirotic kept his foot on the gas with 15 points, seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, three blocks and two triples in 32 minutes vs. the Wizards on Friday.

    Advice: Bobby Portis was invisible in 16 minutes and Mirotic played down the stretch when it mattered the most. While he hit just 6-of-16 shots from the field, his upside has never been a question -- his lack of consistency is his biggest issue. With that said, he's looked great in three straight games with averages of 17.6 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 1.7 blocks and 3.3 triples. Mirotic has the hot hand right now and belongs in fantasy lineups. The Bulls play four games next week. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:19 pm
  • Dario Saric has bad offensive game
    Dario Saric made 3-of-9 from the field for 10 points with seven rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and no turnovers against the Mavs on Friday.

    Advice: It may have been his worst offensive game since January, but he still was able to turn in a multiple-category stat line. Saric did go to the locker room in the first half during this game, but he returned to the bench within about two minutes in real time. Saric gets a day game against the Celtics on Sunday and should bounce back. He's the heavy favorite for Rookie of the Year. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:16 pm
  • Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari out vs. HOU
    Danilo Gallinari (knee) and Wilson Chandler (groin) will not be available for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

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

    Advice: The Nuggets haven't really missed Chandler too much these days thanks to their success with the Mason Plumlee and Nikola Jokic lineups. Besides Plumlee, Juancho Hernangomez should benefit, and he did score nine points with five boards, one steal and one trey in 26 minutes on Thursday. Kenneth Faried should also get minutes. Plumlee is probably the only one worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:21 pm
  • Gary Harris scores 20 in efficient fashion
    Gary Harris made 6-of-9 from the field and all five from the line for 20 points with two rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: Efficiency is the name of the game for Harris. His 49.2 percent from the field is better than the top-qualifying shooting guard, C.J. McCollum, but Harris does need some more games to qualify himself. Harris has been even better since the break, averaging 16.8 points, 2.6 boards, 2.8 dimes, 1.5 steals and 2.5 treys on 53.1 percent from the field. He's been a third-round player since the All-Star Game in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:38 pm
  • Wilson Chandler's return date is unclear
    Coach Mike Malone said Wilson Chandler (groin) doesn't have a definitive timetable.

    Advice: There's a chance Chandler can make it back over the weekend, but he still isn't practicing yet. Chandler's fantasy owners will have to weigh if they want to keep him stashed, especially with the fantasy playoffs starting in several leagues. While he's out, Kenneth Faried, Mason Plumlee and Juan Hernangomez should pick up the minutes at the four. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:58 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo limited by fouls vs LAC
    Giannis Antetokounmpo played just 28 minutes vs. the Clippers on Wednesday, but he still finished with 16 points (5-of-10 FGs, 6-of-9 FTs), five rebounds, five assists and one block.

    Advice: Antetokounmpo picked up two fouls in the first eight minutes of the game, forcing a substitution, and he picked up a third foul after playing 4:24 in the second quarter. Jason Kidd was playing it safe, in other words. Giannis came in leading his team in points (23.1), rebounds (8.6), assists (5.5), blocks (1.9), and steals (1.8), and he's successfully guided the Bucks into the Eastern Conference playoff picture. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:06 pm
  • James Harden posts another double-double
    James Harden scored 18 points during a 139-100 win over the Lakers on Wednesday, adding 12 rebounds, 13 assists, two steals, nine turnovers and one 3-pointer in just 31 minutes.

    Advice: That's triple-double No. 17 for Harden and also his league-leading 53rd double-double. As great as Harden is on the positive side, he's going to absolutely shatter the record for turnovers in a season, but who cares? His post-break stats are slightly down from his pre-break numbers due to a slight dip in usage, though. Harden isn't expected to rest going forward, so he's likely to be on a lot of championship fantasy squads. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:47 pm
  • Brandon Ingram scores 18 points
    Brandon Ingram scored 18 points with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 39 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

    Advice: He's starting to string games together with six straight in double-figure scoring, which started after a zero-point game on Mar. 3. He's also seen an increase in assists and defensive stats over his last five, averaging 14.2 points, 4.0 boards, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals, 0.8 blocks and 0.6 treys on 54.5 percent from the field. Ingram likely won't be a difference maker, but he's trending up as a pickup and is locked in for big minutes. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:28 pm
  • Nikola Mirotic has another solid game
    Nikola Mirotic scored 14 points with five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

    Advice: He was 3-of-10 from the field and made all five from the line. Mirotic is coming off a big 24-point Monday night. On top of the two games with big minutes, Mirotic should get a usage rate increase if Dwyane Wade (elbow) needs to miss time. He makes sense as a pickup, but everyone knows he could be a DNP-CD within the next week. There's nothing wrong with riding the hot hand in fantasy during March, of course. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:39 pm
  • Paul George drops season-high 39 vs. Hornets
    Paul George poured in a season-high 39 points on Wednesday, sinking 15-of-21 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with six 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and three steals.

    Advice: PG went 6-of-10 from deep tonight, helping the Pacers avoid a losing streak by beating the Hornets 98-77. George and Nate McMillan both said after Tuesday's loss that the Pacers hadn't played "the right way" vs. the Knicks. "Stop moving the ball, start taking quick shots, stop screening. Stop defending. Stop playing together," McMillan said. "When you don’t play the game the right way, you show up looking like that." They solved those problems tonight, and despite the team's inconsistency, George's owners have been enjoying top-20 value since the All-Star break. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:28 pm
  • Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari out vs. LAC
    Wilson Chandler (right groin contusion) and Danilo Gallinari (left knee bone bruise) will not play against the Clippers on Thursday.

    Advice: This Saturday groin injury will keep him out for at least a week with the Nuggets not playing again until Mar. 18. Chandler was able to return from this injury during that game, but it's become worse over time. He should be considered questionable for Saturday. While he's out, expect more run for Mason Plumlee, Will Barton, Juancho Hernangomez and more shots for the wings. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 12:23 pm
  • Dario Saric scores 25, does it all in loss
    Dario Saric hit 11-of-20 shots and two 3-pointers for 25 points, seven rebounds, six assists, three steals and two blocks in 37 minutes in Tuesday's tough 106-104 loss to the Warriors.

    Advice: Go ahead and give him the Rookie of the Year Award and if you're looking for something he did wrong, the six turnovers qualify. Saric has been a beast ever since the Sixers sent Ersan Ilyasova to the Hawks and it will be interesting to see what Saric's role is next season, when Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, theoretically, will be playing. Saric has played well enough this season that the Sixers will surely find a way to get him 30 minutes a night, regardless of who he's playing with. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:15 pm
  • Andre Iguodala returns to action
    Andre Iguodala returned from a day of rest on Tuesday vs. the 76ers and scored seven points on 3-of-8 shooting.

    Advice: He got a lot of burn tonight with 33 minutes, adding one rebound, three assists and one triple. Iggy could have some low-end value the rest of the way with Kevin Durant (knee) iffy to return before the playoffs, but keep in mind that he's a candidate for more DNPs down the stretch. It's also worth noting that Matt Barnes played well again tonight after filling in nicely on Iguodala's rest day, and it's unlikely that the duo would both have big stat lines on the same night.
