  • Spencer Dinwiddie starts, doesn't score
    Spencer Dinwiddie did not score in a start against the Hornets on Saturday with five rebounds, two assists and no turnovers in 23 minutes.

    Advice: Starting Dinwiddie has probably run its course. In his last five starts, he's made just 28.6 percent from the field with averages of 5.0 points, 3.0 boards, 4.0 assists, 0.2 steals, 1.6 turnovers and 0.8 treys. His contract is guaranteed, but his minutes may start dropping now. Isaiah Whitehead looks a lot better, as well. Rotoworld.com 56 minutes ago
  • Jason Smith scores season-high 16 points
    Jason Smith scored a season-high 16 points with four rebounds, one block and two 3-pointers in 19 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday.

    Advice: He's actually seen at least 19 minutes in three straight with garbage time not factoring into this. Smith gets most of his run behind Marcin Gortat, but coach Scott Brooks has run him out there at the four for a total of 22 minutes over those three. The Wizards played some bigger teams in that span against the Grizzlies, Knicks and Pistons, so that may be a factor on the uptick. If he is good again vs. Charlotte on Monday, that may put him on the radar in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:04 pm
  • Terry Rozier hits a big shot late
    Terry Rozier thrived in 22 minutes off the bench against the Blazers on Saturday, scoring 15 points with three rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers.

    Advice: Is the hype train back on the tracks? Rozier hit a clutch three with eight seconds left to tie the game. With Avery Bradley (Achilles) out for the next week, Rozier looks like he's earned some minutes until then. He could have some short-term value. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:00 pm
  • Darrell Arthur to be inactive often?
    Darrell Arthur (knee) is expected to rest and miss practices throughout the season.

    Advice: He is dealing with arthritis in his need, so the Nuggets will be cautious with him all season. This is not surprising at all based on his injury history. Arthur may not be in the rotation while Kenneth Faried is active. Leave him on the wire almost everywhere. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:26 pm
  • Courtney Lee to start, Ron Baker to bench
    Courtney Lee will start and Ron Baker will come off the bench against the Suns on Saturday.

    Advice: After Lee's 'Dumb and Dumber' saga, he's back in the starting lineup. He should play with an extra edge and has a great matchup, so he could hit the ground running. We still wouldn't use Lee in most cases. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:07 pm
  • Sam Dekker will start on Saturday vs. Memphis
    Sam Dekker will start on Saturday against the Grizzlies.

    Advice: With Ryan Anderson (flu) out, it's usually been Corey Brewer starting. This time, coach Mike D'Antoni is going with a little more size, which makes sense against the Grizzlies. Dekker has impressed us this season and he can add a little bit of everything to the stat sheet, so he may have some attractive value until Ryno comes back. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:35 pm
  • Sam Dekker likely to start
    Sam Dekker is expected to start for Corey Brewer against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

    Advice: It makes sense after Dekker showed some promise on Friday while Corey Brewer was exploited against the Warriors. Dekker's versatility has always been a favorite attribute for coach Mike D'Antoni, so he might be sticking until Ryan Anderson (illness) can make it back. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:16 pm
  • Joel Anthony to sign with Spurs?
    Joel Anthony is expected to sign with the Spurs.

    Advice: The team is looking for another big man, so they'll go back to Anthony to add some depth. He was with the team at training camp, but was waived on Oct. 22. Leave him on the wire. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:15 pm
  • Ed Davis (ankle) out again for Saturday
    Ed Davis (ankle) is out for Saturday against the Celtics.

    Advice: He didn't exactly look right on Friday and it wasn't just because he had to guard Joel Embiid. With Davis back, there could be a few extra minutes for Meyers Leonard, Al-Farouq Aminu and Noah Vonleh. There's no need to react to this news. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:50 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko will not play on Saturday
    Jonas Jerebko (illness) will not play against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: He was probable, but the team will keep him out. With Jerebko and Tyler Zeller (illness) out, we might get a little Jordan Mickey action. There should be some extra run going to Amir Johnson and Kelly Olynyk as we ll. Olynyk has played well and is a viable option today. He's worth a look in standard leagues, but we've seen him fall off several times. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:23 pm
  • Jonas Jerebko has a cold, is probable
    Jonas Jerebko (illness) has a cold and is probable to play against the Blazers on Saturday.

    Advice: Considering he's probable, we'll assume Jerebko is good for minutes in the low teens. Although, coach Brad Stevens may opt for Tyler Zeller to be his last big in the rotation. There's little reason to react to this news from a fantasy perspective. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:03 pm
  • Patrick Patterson (knee) practices fully
    Patrick Patterson (knee) went through the Raptors full practice on Saturday.

    Advice: With Lucas Noguiera (concussion) also sidelined Friday night, the Raps went small and started Norman Powell and DeMarre Carroll at the forward spots. Jared Sullinger and Pascal Siakam saw 17 and 19 minutes, respectively, off the bench. The Raps next game is Sunday vs. Phoenix. We will have to wait for an update regarding Patterson's status for that contest. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:33 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) available on Saturday
    Darrell Arthur (left knee soreness) will be available to play on Saturday, but will be on a minutes restriction.

    Advice: Even once fully healthy, Arthur will have a difficult time earning heavy minutes with Kenneth Faried playing well of late. However, Arthur may cut into the playing time of Faried and Juan Hernangomez. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:28 am
  • Joe Harris (ankle) ruled out Saturday
    Joe Harris (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Charlotte.

    Advice: Harris played just 13 minutes despite starting at shooting guard on Friday night. Harris' absence will open up more minutes for rising rookie Caris LeVert, who is coming off a terrific game. LeVert made all six shots from the field and both free throws for 17 points against the Pelicans on Friday, adding five rebounds and six assists. Sean Kilpatrick (rest) is expected to return to the Nets lineup on Saturday, but LeVert should still be looking at least 25 minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:27 am
  • Willie Cauley-Stein frustrated in Sacramento
    Willie Cauley-Stein is frustrated with his lack of playing time and production this season.

    Advice: "I feel I was showing stuff at the end of last season that would make people say, ‘Oh, damn, they got a steal in the draft,’ " Cauley-Stein said. "Now it’s like I took 25 steps forward and 30 steps back. It’s like my whole rookie season didn’t matter and I’m back at square one. Nothing I did last year is having an effect on my career. It’s been very frustrating." After averaging 21.4 minutes per game last season, he's averaging just 10.9 this season. And he's averaging just 6.4 minutes per contest over the last month. He can obviously be left on the waiver wires for now. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:19 am
  • Ed Davis returned to action on Friday January 20. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:41 am
  • Joe Ingles puts up another awesome line
    Joe Ingles was superb in 39 minutes against the Mavs on Friday, scoring 12 points with three rebounds, four assists, three steals and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He still is holding his lead for 3-point percentage. Although, coach Quin Snyder has talked about Ingles playing better defense, which has been a saving grace for him to get so much playing time. With a back-to-back coming up on Saturday, Ingles should still get some heavy burn against the Pacers. He should have some very nice value until Rodney Hood (knee) comes back. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:57 pm
  • Dwight Powell scores 14 points
    Dwight Powell scored 14 points with three rebounds in 27 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

    Advice: This one was all about the matchup. The Mavs needed another big body against the Jazz and played Powell out there to start overtime. He only averaged 11.0 minutes per game in his previous two, so obviously he needs to do it a few more times. He'll get a bad matchup for minutes against the Lakers on Sunday. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:30 pm
  • Sam Dekker looks good off the bench
    Sam Dekker scored 17 points with seven rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Warriors on Friday.

    Advice: With Ryan Anderson (illness) set to miss at least one game and probably more, Dekker could have some value in the next week. He's played better defense and coach Mike D'Antoni has used him at three different positions. He'll lose most of his short-term value once Ryno returns. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:02 pm
  • Dante Cunningham post a -32
    Dante Cunningham scored 14 points with seven rebounds, one assist, one block and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: In the plus-minus stat, he managed an incredible -32. Coach Alvin Gentry insists on starting him to help on switches and perimeter defense, but it's costing him in other areas. He's worth a look in deep leagues, but his low upside makes him a low-demand player. He's actually been decent, as a top-200 player lately. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:43 pm
  • Joe Harris gets just 13 minutes
    Joe Harris played just 13 minutes with eight points, two rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers against the Pelicans on Friday.

    Advice: That's some low playing time with his backup, Sean Kilpatrick (rest), not playing today. Caris LeVert is coming for his minutes, so Harris is trending down for owners who had him in super deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:10 pm
  • Ed Davis makes his return
    Ed Davis (ankle) played 15 minutes with two points, six rebounds, one assist and five fouls in 15 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: This is definitely one of those Ed Davis games for coach Terry Stotts. The coach loves to use Davis against the stud bigs and put Davis on Joel Embiid quite a bit tonight. He does not have much fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:36 pm
  • Ed Davis likely to play on Friday
    Ed Davis (ankle) is likely to play against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: Coach Terry Stotts and the Blazers may not give us another update on Boss, but it makes sense to use him with how Stotts like Davis against skilled bigs. Obviously, fantasy owners shouldn't be reacting to this news at almost any depth. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:46 pm
  • Bebe Nogueira, Pat Patterson out again
    Patrick Patterson (knee) and Lucas Noguiera (concussion) will not play against the Hornets on Friday night.

    Advice: We'll see if the Raptors are going to play Jared Sullinger a little more, but it's unlikely to be much more than his 14 minutes. Pascal Siakam should get some added run at power forward, but the Raptors could definitely go small a lot against a smaller four in Marvin Williams. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:05 pm
  • Darrell Arthur listed as questionable
    Darrell Arthur (left knee soreness) is listed as questionable to play against the Clippers on Saturday.

    Advice: This is an upgrade from him being listed as doubtful to play on Thursday before the DNP. Arthur is likely out of the rotation anyway with Kenneth Faried playing well. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:09 pm
  • Patrick Patterson (knee) doubtful for Friday
    Patrick Patterson (knee) appears unlikely to play Friday vs. Charlotte.

    Advice: Patterson has missed four straight games due to knee issues. Lucas Nogueira is also doubtful, leaving the Raps shorthanded in the frontcourt. Pascal Siakam will likely start. Jared Sullinger (foot) returned Wednesday and played 14 minutes. He should see around 15 minutes again on Friday. Norman Powell and Terrence Ross could also see additional minutes off the bench. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:35 am
  • Ed Davis (ankle) probable for Friday
    Ed Davis (sprained left ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Friday's game vs. 76ers

    Advice: Davis missed Wednesday's game due to the ankle sprain. There is only minimal fantasy impact here, as Davis will split minutes off the bench with Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:08 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) ruled out for Thursday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play on Thursday vs. the Spurs.

    Advice: Of course he won't. Arthur can't stay healthy and the Nuggets are going to limit his workload whenever they can. With Wilson Chandler (personal) out and Danilo Gallinari (ankle) questionable, we should see a lot of Kenneth Faried tonight and may even get a Jusuf Nurkic sighting. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:19 am
  • Dante Cunningham hits 7-of-11 FGs for 14 pts
    Dante Cunningham earned another start for the Pelicans on Wednesday, posting 14 points on 7-of-11 shooting with five rebounds and no other stats in 27 minutes.

    Advice: The veteran came in shooting 38.9 percent this season, and he's typically a vacant fantasy option no matter how many minutes he gets. He belongs on the wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 9:01 pm
  • Terry Rozier squanders expanded role vs. NYK
    Terry Rozier squandered an opportunity on Wednesday, coming off the bench for five points on 1-of-8 shooting with one rebound, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

    Advice: Avery Bradley (Achilles) was out tonight, so Rozier was a staple of the Celtics' second unit. He finished with a plus/minus rating of -22, however, and neither he nor his teammates showed much fight. Even while Bradley is sidelined, Rozier is little more than a DFS punt play. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:33 pm
  • Courtney Lee gets 9/8/7 in win vs. Celtics
    Courtney Lee handed out a season-high seven assists in 38 bench minutes vs. the Celtics on Wednesday, adding nine points and eight rebounds in a convincing road win.

    Advice: C-Lee added one 3-pointer and one block to round out his line. He will have the ball in his hands more often with the second unit, but it's hard to see him approaching this many minutes routinely - Ron Baker was in foul trouble all game long. Leave C-Lee on the wire unless he can duplicate this performance a few times. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:27 pm
  • Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play at PHI
    Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play against the 76ers on Wednesday.

    Advice: His knee injury has kept him to just two games in 2017. Luckily for the Raptors, they have Jared Sullinger (foot) back for limited minutes -- he's likely only going to play 10-15 minutes tonight. The Raptors will also likely go smaller tonight while Pascal Siakam could play 20 minutes. None of these guys mentioned are worth using in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 3:17 pm
  • Darrell Arthur is doubtful to play
    Darrell Arthur (knee) is doubtful to play against the Spurs on Thursday.

    Advice: He did not play on Tuesday due to his oft-injured knee. With Wilson Chandler (personal) listed as out, there could be plenty of minutes going to Kenneth Faried and even Juan Hernangomez. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 2:03 pm
  • Sam Dekker plays 25 minutes in loss
    Sam Dekker played 25 minutes and hit 3-of-8 shots and a 3-pointer for eight points, seven rebounds and two assists in Tuesday's loss to the Heat.

    Advice: He saw some extra minutes with Ryan Anderson out with an illness, but will return to his normal (read: fewer) minutes with Anderson due back quickly from the flu. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:12 pm
  • Patrick Patterson (knee) out Tuesday vs. BKN
    Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: This will be his third straight game on the sidelines, and his absence essentially ensures that Lucas Nogueira will get another start at the four-spot. Nogueira is worth owning as a shot blocking specialist in most leagues, while Patterson isn't worth a roster spot almost anywhere. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:50 pm
  • Ed Davis (ankle) out Wednesday vs. Hornets
    Ed Davis (sprained left ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    Advice: Davis only lasted five minutes on Monday night before the ankle flared up on him, so he could be spending a few games on the shelf here as he gets his ankle back to 100 percent. Meyers Leonard and Noah Vonleh will likely split Davis' minutes, but that means very little in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:02 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Tuesday
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

    Advice: This will be the third consecutive game Arthur has missed due to his latest knee pain. Kenneth Faried started and played a season-high 33 minutes on Monday. The Manimal will likely see extra minutes on Tuesday as well due to Arthur's absence. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:54 am
  • Darrell Arthur (knee): Tuesday status unknown
    The availability of Darrell Arthur (knee) for Tuesday’s game at the L.A. Lakers is unknown.

    Advice: Arthur missed his second consecutive game due to left knee soreness on Monday. He has missed a total of 10 games this season as a result of knee issues. "He only knows one speed," coach Mike Malone said. "When we (practice) hard he goes hardest. And his knee has a hard time withstanding that pounding. So I almost have to try to protect him from himself at times." Kenneth Faried played a season-high 33 minutes on Monday and would get a boost on Tuesday if Arthur is out. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:09 am
  • Courtney Lee unsure if he will come off bench
    Courtney Lee is unsure if he will continue to come off the bench or return to the Knicks starting lineup.

    Advice: "[Coach Jeff Hornacek] said it might just be for this game [Monday], it might be for a couple games. He was just saying we need to change something around," Lee said after the Knicks lost to the Hawks on Monday afternoon. Lee played just 21 minutes and was benched the entire fourth quarter. He is averaging only 6.5 points and shooting just 19 percent from 3-point territory over his last six games. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 7:03 am
  • Ed Davis returned to action on Monday January 16. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 12:41 am
  • Joe Ingles scores 11 in start for Jazz
    Joe Ingles started for Rodney Hood (knee) and hit 4-of-6 shots and three 3-pointers for 11 points, two rebounds, five assists and two steals in 34 minutes of Monday's 106-101 win over the Suns.

    Advice: The Jazz play two more times this week, meaning Ingles should have at least a couple more starts in him with Hood out for at least a couple weeks. If you have dead weight you want to cut to take advantage of Ingles' new opportunity, go for it. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:00 pm
  • Joe Ingles will start Monday vs. Phoenix
    Joe Ingles will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Suns, with Rodney Hood (knee) unavailable.

    Advice: Hood is expected to miss the next two weeks of action, so Ingles is worth a look in most leagues if you've got someone to cut. In three starts this season, Ingles has compiled averages of 13.7 points, 4.7 boards, 4.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.0 triples per contest on 56.0 percent shooting. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:55 pm
  • Dante Cunningham scores three points in start
    Dante Cunningham moved into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Pacers, but scored just three points on 1-of-7 shooting in 31 minutes.

    Advice: We have no idea why coach Alvin Gentry insists on giving Cunningham this type of workload, but it could be his downfall. The forward added just two rebounds, one steal and a triple, while Terrence Jones had 15 points with eight rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a triple in 26 minutes off the bench. Even with Anthony Davis (back) going down, Cunnigham isn't worth adding in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:36 pm
  • Cunningham starting, Jones to the bench
    Dante Cunningham will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Pacers, sending Terrence Jones back to the bench.

    Advice: Alvin Gentry just loves Cunningham, but there's nothing to like about his production in fantasy hoops. Jrue Holiday, Buddy Hield, Solomon Hill and Anthony Davis will join Cunningham in the starting five for today's matinee, and Jones' value will take a hit with the demotion to the second unit. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:37 pm
  • Courtney Lee scores seven off bench
    Courtney Lee scored seven points off the bench with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer against the Hawks on Monday.

    Advice: After the game, Lee said he found out he was benched just before the game. In a halftime interview, Carmelo Anthony said Lee handled the benching like a pro and also made it seem like it was more of an experiment. Lee has also really fallen off as a shooter lately, making just 2-of-15 from deep in his last four -- he was leading the NBA in 3-point percentage last month. Lee is only a 16-team guy for now. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:33 pm
  • Ed Davis (sprained ankle) will play Monday
    Ed Davis (sprained left ankle) is available to play on Monday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: He was considered questionable, but he said his ankle felt fine after warmups. Davis has played 21 or less minutes in three straight games, so he shouldn't be in many fantasy lineups. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:41 am
  • Courtney Lee will come off the bench
    Courtney Lee will come off the bench on Monday vs. Atlanta.

    Advice: The Knicks have been shredded on defense all season, so they're going to take their best wing defender out of the lineup. Sounds about right. Lee was a low-end asset to own before this news, so feel free to drop him for a hot free agent. With that said, he should still see a healthy dose of minutes Monday. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:27 am
  • Spencer Dinwiddie starts, plays 24 minutes
    Spencer Dinwiddie earned another start on Sunday despite the return of Isaiah Whitehead (knee), going scoreless on 0-of-3 shooting with eight assists and two rebounds in 24 minutes.

    Advice: The Nets announced their starting lineup well after the 6pm start time, frustrating owners who were hoping to rely on Dinwiddie or Whitehead, though neither guy did much tonight. Dinwiddie's assists were nice, and he might have played more if he weren't in foul trouble, but with Whitehead active he's a dubious option in any format. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:12 pm
  • Sam Dekker (shoulder) looks good in 17 mins
    Sam Dekker (strained left shoulder) posted eight points on 4-of-5 shooting vs. the Nets on Sunday, adding three assists, one rebound and one steal in 17 minutes.

    Advice: Dekker didn't miss any time with the injury, but even at full strength he's an unappealing fantasy asset in standard leagues. In Houston's previous five games, the second-year forward was averaging just 5.8 points on 38.5 percent shooting, 1.2 threes, 3.6 rebounds, 1.0 assists and 0.6 steals. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 6:01 pm
  • Ed Davis (ankle) questionable Monday vs. WAS
    Ed Davis (sprained left ankle) is a game-time call on Monday vs. the Wizards.

    Advice: It's unclear exactly when Davis suffered this injury, but we should have a better idea on his status following Monday morning's shootaround. If he's out, Meyers Leonard would have the opportunity for some extended minutes off the bench, but he's too inconsistent to rely upon in standard settings. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 1:50 pm
  • Darrell Arthur (knee) out Monday vs. Magic
    Darrell Arthur (knee) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Magic.

    Advice: It's always something with this guy, and Monday will mark his second straight game on the sidelines. Kenneth Faried and Jusuf Nurkic will likely split his limited minutes, which doesn't mean all that much. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:48 am
  • Patrick Patterson (knee) won't play Sunday
    Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) will not play Sunday vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: He will miss his second game in a row, but the Raptors are likely being cautious based on coach Dwane Casey's comments earlier in the week. With Patterson out, the Raptors are going to roll with Lucas Nogueira at the four, but that might not be ideal if the Knicks start Lance Thomas in place of Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles). Nogueira had 10 points, nine rebounds, four blocks and two assists in his last start. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:57 am
  • Sam Dekker (left shoulder strain) will play
    Sam Dekker (left shoulder strain) will play on Sunday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: He picked up the injury at the end of Friday's game and was held out of practice on Saturday, but he's good to go tonight and there's no word of any restrictions. Dekker is averaging 5.4 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.0 triple through the first seven games of January. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:37 am
  • Joe Ingles scores eight points in 10 mins
    Joe Ingles scored eight points with two rebounds, one assist and two 3-pointers in 10 minutes against Orlando on Saturday.

    Advice: He did not see much run in this contest, but Rodney Hood (knee) suffered a hyperextended knee tonight, so Ingles could be in for a larger role if Hood misses. In the five games that Hood has missed this season, Ingles is averaging 33.4 minutes, 15.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.8 assists, and 1.6 steals, while making 17 3-pointers during that stretch. He can be considered a DFS value play if Hood is out. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:46 pm
  • Dante Cunningham scores seven points
    Dante Cunningham scored seven points with five rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes off the bench against the Bulls on Saturday.

    Advice: He was the first forward sub of the game and checked in for Terrence Jones, so coach Alvin Gentry may see him in that role going forward. Cunningham needs a ridiculous amount of minutes to have value in even deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:00 pm
  • Patrick Patterson (knee) questionable for Sun
    Patrick Patterson (sore left knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Patterson returned to play two games earlier this week but was then forced to sit out Friday night, although coach Dwane Casey said that it is more of a precaution. Lucas Nogueira started in place of Patterson on Friday, finishing with 10 points and nine rebounds in 30 minutes. Pascal Siakam or Norman Powell could also see increased minutes, based on matchups, if Patterson misses more time. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 10:16 am
  • Sam Dekker (shoulder) questionable for Sunday
    Sam Dekker (left shoulder strain) is questionable for Sunday's game at Brooklyn.

    Advice: Dekker has played in all 42 the Rockets games this season, averaging 6.6 points and 4.0 rebounds in 18.6 minutes per contest. Trevor Ariza, Ryan Anderson and Corey Brewer would likely see more minutes than usual if Dekker does not play Sunday. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 9:09 am
  • Spencer Dinwiddie has an OK start
    Spencer Dinwiddie scored 10 points with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes during his start against the Raptors on Friday.

    Advice: He played well enough to keep Randy Foye at bay in this game -- Foye played really well. Dinwiddie should continue to start while Isaiah Whitehead (knee) is out, but the rookie guard is only day-to-day. There's little reason to add Dinwiddie in most leagues unless you're streaming for Sunday. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:52 pm
  • Spencer Dinwiddie starting, Whitehead out
    Spencer Dinwiddie will start for Isaiah Whitehead (knee) against the Raptors on Friday night.

    Advice: We saw Whitehead suffer an injury on Thursday and not return. After that, Dinwiddie had a tough time against the Pelicans and the Nets actually went with a no-PG lineup to close out. One thing that helps Dinwiddie is that the Nets were a disaster late in the game, so Dinwiddie should be looking at heavy minutes tonight. Sean Kilpatrick will likely be the backup point guard, which opens up more minutes for Caris LeVert and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson off the bench. Dinwiddie makes sense as a value play in DFS. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:19 pm
  • Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play Friday
    Patrick Patterson (knee) will not play Friday against the Nets.

    Advice: Coach Dwane Casey said that it is more of a precaution. He didn't exactly look right with 21 minutes and going scoreless on Tuesday. Against Trevor Booker at the four, the Raptors could be looking at Lucas Nogueira as the starter. They could also go with more small-ball lineups against the fastest team in the NBA. Rotoworld.com Friday, 2:52 pm
  • Dante Cunningham comes off the bench
    Dante Cunningham moved to the bench on Thursday against the Nets, finishing with four points, five boards and one steal.

    Advice: Maybe, just maybe coach Alvin Gentry will start playing Terrence Jones over Cunningham more now. Cunningham isn't worth owning in almost any league regardless. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:49 pm
  • Joe Harris scores 15 points vs. NO
    Joe Harris scored 15 points during a 104-95 loss to the Pelicans on Thursday, adding two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

    Advice: He was likely on thin ice with only four total points in his previous three games, so a good game here has to help. Plus, Caris LeVert is also making a charge for more playing time and possibly even starting. Although, LeVert usually checks in for Bojan Bogdanovic while Sean Kilpatrick checks in for Harris. If Isaiah Whitehead (knee) misses time, that would help Harris slightly for owners in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:35 pm
  • Spencer Dinwiddie squanders his chance
    Spencer Dinwiddie did not score in 25 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block.

    Advice: He missed all five shots from the field and the Nets went without a point guard to close this game out. Isaiah Whitehead (knee) did not finish this game and could miss time going forward. Dinwiddie is currently the only healthy point guard on the roster, so he has a great chance to start on Friday. If you need a point guard in a deep league, give him a speculative add for short-term value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:16 pm
  • Dante Cunningham moves to the bench
    Dante Cunningham will move to the bench against the Nets on Thursday.

    Advice: He should still be in the rotation tonight, but obviously fantasy owners shouldn't be looking his way. Cunningham will need a lot to happen to have consistent fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:10 pm
  • Darrell Arthur will not play on Thursday
    Darrell Arthur (leg) will not play against the Pacers on Thursday.

    Advice: The Nuggets are somewhat healthy besides Arthur, so he wasn't a lock to be in the rotation anyway. Kenneth Faried could see some minutes at power forward tonight. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 11:30 am
  • Patrick Patterson (knee) misses practice
    Patrick Patterson (knee) did not practice on Thursday.

    Advice: He still has minute restrictions, so this was likely a rest day. Patterson moved into the starting lineup on Tuesday vs. Boston, but failed to score in 21 minutes. Standard-league owners can do better and Patterson's outlook isn't great due to the eventual return of Jared Sullinger (foot). Rotoworld.com Thursday, 10:28 am
  • Darrell Arthur (leg) questionable Thursday
    Darrell Arthur (leg) is questionable for Thursday's game for the Pacers.

    Advice: Of course he is. Nikola Jokic is returning from an illness anyways, so Arthur will be irrelevant in most fantasy leagues with his move back to the bench. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 7:42 am
  • Terry Rozier earns praise from Brad Stevens
    Terry Rozier gave the Celtics a lift in 25 bench minutes on Wednesday, scoring 11 points with two 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: "I thought Terry Rozier was great," Brad Stevens said after the game. "Terry made a huge difference tonight." He saw extra opportunities with Avery Bradley and Jaylen Brown both injured tonight, and we'll let you know if he plays consistently well enough to deserve a pickup. It's doubtful.
