  • Marco Belinelli scores 13 pts on 5-of-8 FGs
    Marco Belinelli made 5-of-8 shots on Wednesday with one 3-pointer, finishing with 13 points, five boards, three assists and one steal.

    Advice: Belinelli came in shooting an abysmal 28.3 percent in January. He missed five games in late December and early January, and coach Steve Clifford suggested that he was still struggling because he's "such a rhythm player." He finally gained some traction tonight, but isn't really worth owning unless you need 3-pointers in a deep league. Rotoworld.com 25 minutes ago
  • Sergio Rodriguez logs 19 bench minutes
    Sergio Rodriguez went back to the bench on Wednesday, posting four points, seven rebounds, four assists and three turnovers in 19 minutes.

    Advice: Rodriguez started Monday's game in place of T.J. McConnell (wrist), but the well ran dry with McConnell back in action tonight. His numbers as a reserve are sufficient to explain his lack of fantasy appeal -- 4.0 points on 26.7 percent shooting, 1.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 0.6 steals. Rotoworld.com 51 minutes ago
  • Cory Joseph plays 26 minutes off bench Wed
    Cory Joseph came off the bench on Wednesday for five points, three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes.

    Advice: CoJo exploded as a starter on Tuesday with 33 points, four boards and four assists, but that was the result of a perfect storm -- Kyle Lowry was resting and he was up against the Nets' terrible defense. He's barely inside the top-200 for season-long value. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:20 pm
  • Jodie Meeks (dislocated thumb) out for game
    Jodie Meeks suffered a dislocated right thumb on Wednesday and will not return.

    Advice: The good news is X-rays were negative, so he didn't break anything. That said, he will need an MRI on Thursday to check for ligament damage. Meeks finished with five points, four rebounds, two steals and two turnovers in 16 minutes. Maybe, just maybe coach Frank Vogel will play Mario Hezonja, who is only worth a speculative add in very deep leagues for now. C.J. Watson should also get more minutes. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:48 pm
  • Ty Lawson (ankle) ruled out for Wednesday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) will not play against the Pacers on Wednesday night.

    Advice: He tried to test out his ankle, but apparently wasn't as healthy as expected. With Lawson out tonight. Garrett Temple should get some minutes as the backup point guard to go with some minutes at the two. Darren Collison is also coming off a 21-pont game and could have some success against his former team. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:24 pm
  • Ty Lawson expected to play on Wednesday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) remains expected to play on Wednesday against the Pacers.

    Advice: This is a pretty much non-update, but it may also be the last one with how the Kings report their injuries. For now, expect Lawson to play and get minutes in the low 20s. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:14 pm
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. will come off the bench Weds
    Tim Hardaway Jr. will come off the bench Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: The Hawks will roll out a starting five featuring Dennis Schroder, Thabo Sefolosha, Kent Bazemore, Paul Millsap and Dwight Howard (rest), but Hardaway should still be able to flirt with minutes in the 30s regardless of how he enters the game. He's been averaging 16.9 points and 2.9 triples per contest through the month of January, so he's worth owning while he's this hot. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:47 pm
  • Evan Fournier (heel, foot) out for Wednesday
    Evan Fournier (heel, foot) will not play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

    Advice: He tried to return from a heel injury last week and apparently it's caused additional problems to his foot due to compensation. Fournier's owners obviously have to stash him. Jodie Meeks should play minutes around 30 while Elfrid Payton has also been terrific without Fournier lately. Meeks is worth a look in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:35 pm
  • Sergio Rodriguez will come off the bench Weds
    Sergio Rodriguez will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

    Advice: T.J. McConnell (wrist) is back in action tonight, and he'll immediately be re-inserted into the starting five, which could result in Rodriguez' minutes plunging to the teens, rendering him a non-option in most formats. Nik Stauskas, Robert Covington, Ersan Ilyasova and Joel Embiid will join McConnell in the starting five for tonight's game. Daily Slant: With McConnell back in action, Rodriguez isn't a DFS option, but the two should continue to cut into each other's production to an extent. McConnell is a good bet for 30-32 minutes of run, but with almost the entire roster active, Joel Embiid looks like the only strong DFS target on a nine-game slate. Embiid is 4th in the NBA in usage rate and faces a Toronto defense that ranks 18th in rebounding rate and sits about league average in defensive efficiency. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:31 pm
  • Hawks sign Gary Neal on 10-day deal
    Hawks sign G Gary Neal.

    Advice: It's only a 10-day deal for the former Spur, Wolf, Hornet, Wizard and Buck. The Hawks haven't really gotten much out of their rookie wings, so Neal may add some depth to add more scoring punch off the bench. Neal isn't worth owning almost anywhere yet. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:47 pm
  • Jared Dudley expected to be back
    Jared Dudley (illness) is expected to be available against the Cavs on Thursday.

    Advice: He's not in the rotation right now, so Dudley can remain on the wire just about everywhere. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:37 am
    New Player Note
    Jared Dudley Pho - SG,SF,PF
    GTD
     
  • Brandon Knight (wrist) questionable Thursday
    Brandon Knight (wrist) is questionable to play against the Cavs on Thursday.

    Advice: He has missed the last two games with his wrist sprain. Knight is barely in the rotation right now. If he's out, Tyler Ulis would likely see more minutes and it's worth a mention Devin Booker played 46 minutes in regulation on Monday. Knight needs a trade to save his value, so he may not be worth owning in shallower leagues. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:31 am
  • Reggie Bullock will start Wednesday vs. ATL
    Reggie Bullock will remain in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Hawks, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) unavailable.

    Advice: Bullock logged 29 minutes in a start on Sunday, but only managed to tally four points, one rebound, one assist and one steal. Yes, he's starting, but that doesn't make him a viable target in most settings. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:21 am
  • Ron Baker will start again on Wednesday
    Ron Baker will remain in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, with Courtney Lee coming off the bench.

    Advice: Ron "Burgundy" Baker had a solid outing in his previous start, posting 12 points, four triples, three boards, one assist and two steals in his 22 minutes of floor time, so he's on the radar as a potential deep league streamer. Lee was a no-show in 21 minutes off the bench, scoring just seven points to go with one 3-pointer and not much else, so he's a cut candidate with the demotion to the second unit. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:41 am
  • Report: ATL to sign Gary Neal to 10-day deal
    The Hawks will reportedly sign Gary Neal to a 10-day contract.

    Advice: Neal is familiar with Mike Budenholzer, as Budenholzer was an assistant coach in San Antonio during his time there, although we're not expecting much from him in Atlanta. He'll be competing for playing time with the likes of Tim Hardaway Jr., Mike Dunleavy and Kent Bazemore, so he's not a great add in most settings. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:41 am
  • Report: Atlanta trading Mo Williams to Denver
    The Hawks will reportedly send Mo Williams and some cash to the Nuggets.

    Advice: Denver will be sending the rights to Cenk Akyol (drafted in 2005 and yet to make his NBA debut) back to Atlanta in exchange for Williams, but it's unlikely Akyol will ever play a game in the NBA. The actual corresponding move here for the Hawks will be signing Gary Neal to a 10-day contract. Williams is going to be waived in Denver, and the 13-year-veteran may have already played his final NBA game. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:36 am
  • Lou Williams scores 24 points in loss
    Lou Williams scored 24 points on 8-of-17 shooting in Tuesday's loss to Denver.

    Advice: He's officially hot again after scoring 26 points in his previous outing. Williams started the last game with Luol Deng (wrist) out, but the Lakers went with Brandon Ingram in the first unit this time around and it will likely stick. Williams still logged 31 minutes because he helped the Lakers climb back into this game, adding seven assists, four rebounds and two triples. He won't be this good going forward and he's a candidate to be moved before the trade deadline, but he's worth owning right now and is giving Eric Gordon a run for his money for the Sixth Man of the Year Award. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:23 pm
  • Jameer Nelson comes back to earth Tuesday
    Jameer Nelson played 20 minutes and hit just 1-of-2 shots for two points, four assists and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Lakers.

    Advice: He was probably a popular DFS play with Gary Harris out again, but he was strictly the backup point guard tonight. He had 18 points, four boards, four assists and two 3-pointers on Monday against his former team (Magic), but wasn't feeling quite as motivated tonight. Will Barton was awesome tonight and is the guy you want to target as long as Gary Harris is out with his ankle injury. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:20 pm
  • Cory Joseph scores career-high 33 points
    Cory Joseph scored a career-high 33 points in Tuesday's win over the Nets.

    Advice: Starting in place of the resting Kyle Lowry, Joseph shattered his previous career high of 20 points set back in 2014. He hit 15-of-22 shots from the field with four rebounds, four assists and one triple in 37 minutes, as the Nets' young backcourt had no answer for him. Lowry is expected to return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers, but remember this performance from CoJo the next time Lowry gets a night off. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:30 pm
  • Cory Joseph starting for Lowry (rest)
    Cory Joseph is starting in place of Kyle Lowry (rest) on Tuesday vs. the Nets.

    Advice: Lowry is getting the night off to rest some bumps and bruises, so Joseph could eclipse the 30-minute mark tonight and looks like a strong punt in DFS. DeMar DeRozan should also be a popular play, as his usage rate climbs from 31.7 to 41.5 with Lowry off the court. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:21 pm
  • Fournier, Biyombo questionable for Wednesday
    Evan Fournier (heel) and Bismack Biyombo (knee) are being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

    Advice: Fournier missed five straight games with this same injury earlier this month, and that wasn't enough time off to get himself right, so he could miss more time this time around. Considering he's only sat out the past two, we feel he's much closer to doubtful for Wednesday's game, but we should get another update after shootaround. Biyombo had a nasty fall on Monday, and while he played through it, it looks like the knee swelled up on the flight to New Orleans. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:26 pm
  • Jameer Nelson enjoys victory over the Magic
    Jameer Nelson said he had "extra incentive" playing against his former team, the Orlando Magic, on Monday night.

    Advice: Nelson left Orlando in 2014 but clearly isn't happy with the way the relationship ended. ""It just felt like certain people counted me out, but one thing I’m never going to do is count myself out," said Nelson. He finished with 18 points, four boards and four assists in 32 minutes on Monday. With Gary Harris (ankle) expected to miss Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers, Nelson could be in line for extra playing time on Tuesday as well Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:36 am
  • Ty Lawson (ankle) probable for Wednesday
    Ty Lawson (ankle) is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

    Advice: Lawson twisted his left ankle in the second half of the Sunday's game vs. OKC and was unable to return. However, it appears that the injury is minor and that Lawson "isn't expecting to miss" the Kings next game, which is Wednesday vs. Indiana. Stay tuned for a formal update from the team regarding his status. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:12 am
  • Evan Fournier returned to action on Monday January 16. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:41 am
  • Jodie Meeks scores 11 points in 34 minutes
    Jodie Meeks scored 11 points with four rebounds, four assists, one 3-pointers and three turnovers in 34 minutes on Monday vs. Denver.

    Advice: Meeks once again start in place of the injured Evan Fournier (foot). Meeks' ceiling isn't very high, but he is consistent when starting. He has now scored in double-figures in four straight games. With Fournier potentially out the rest of the week, Meeks should continue to start for the foreseeable future, which makes Meeks a decent short-term add in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:03 pm
  • Jared Dudley will not play Monday
    Jared Dudley (illness) will not play on Monday vs. Utah.

    Advice: Dudley has played a total of five minutes in January, so this doesn't have any fantasy implications. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:45 pm

  • Jameer Nelson scores 18 points in 32 minutes
    Jameer Nelson had 18 points, four rebounds, four assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one turnover in 32 minutes on Monday.

    Advice: Gary Harris sprained his ankle just three minutes into the game, which opened up extra playing time for Nelson, who has now scored in double-figures in three straight games. Harris is doubtful for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers, so Nelson could be in line for an uptick in playing time. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:32 pm
  • Update: Brandon Knight (wrist) out Monday
    Updating a previous report, Brandon Knight (sprained right wrist) will not play on Monday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: A previous report indicated that he will be "available," but the Suns will hold him out for the second straight game. Knight wasn't even updated on Saturday vs. the Spurs and showed up in the box score as a "DNP-sprained right wrist," so it's not clear when he will return to action. He's just a stash in the hope that he's traded before the deadline. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:24 pm
  • Brandon Knight (wrist) available to play
    Brandon Knight (sprained right wrist) will be available to play Monday vs. the Jazz.

    Advice: Available to play doesn't always mean will play, so Knight is a dubious fantasy target in most settings tonight. Over the past month, Knight has only been averaging 18.1 minutes a game, ranking well outside the top-150, so he can only be viewed as a stash with hopes he'll get traded to a better situation. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:32 pm
  • Jameer Nelson starts the 2nd half sans Harris
    Jameer Nelson started the second half of Monday's game against the Magic.

    Advice: Gary Harris suffered a right ankle injury just three minutes into the game and will not return, which prompted Nelson's move into the starting five. He has started in the past when Harris has hit the sidelines, so he could see a decent boost in value if Harris is forced into an extended absence, as should Jamal Murray and Will Barton. We'll let you know how Nelson does after the game. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:27 pm
  • Sergio Rodriguez scores 10 w/ six dimes
    Sergio Rodriguez moved into the starting lineup in Monday's 113-104 win over the Bucks, scoring 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting.

    Advice: T.J. McConnell (wrist) wasn't able to play and coach Brett Brown wasn't sure how much time he would miss. Rodriguez logged 32 minutes and added six assists, seven rebounds, one steal and one triple, so he looks like a nice short-term pickup and he was productive as a starter earlier this season -- he averaged 9.7 points, 6.3 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.7 triples in 29 previous starts. Give him a look if you need a PG who can rack up dimes. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:17 pm
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. scores 20 points vs. NY
    Tim Hardaway scored 20 points in a start against the Knicks on Monday, adding three rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

    Advice: Revenge game? Hardaway Jr.'s team got a big win at MSG to make them 9-1 in their last 10. Even though he may not start going forward, Hardaway Jr. has been terrific since the Kyle Korver trade. While he may be traded as a restricted free agent this summer, he has to be owned in standard leagues with his recent play. Rotoworld.com Monday, 1:22 pm
  • Evan Fournier (heel) out Monday vs. Denver
    Evan Fournier (heel) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Nuggets, as expected.

    Advice: He's currently without an official timetable to return, and it sounds like there's a good chance he'll spend the entire week on the sidelines. Jodie Meeks will draw the start in his place, and Elfrid Payton, Aaron Gordon, Serge Ibaka and Nikola Vucevic will join him in the starting five. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:47 pm
  • Ron Baker scores 12 points in start
    Ron Baker started at shooting guard against the Hawks on Monday, scoring 12 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals and four 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

    Advice: After the game, coach Jeff Hornacek said he likes how Baker competes and liked how he had three early shots to help get him going. It's unclear if this lineup is going to stick for the Knicks, but Baker didn't close this game out. For now, he's only an add in deeper leagues. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:43 pm
  • Sergio Rodriguez will start Monday vs. Bucks
    Sergio Rodriguez will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Milwaukee, with T.J. McConnell (wrist) unavailable.

    Advice: With McConnell on the sidelines, Rodriguez may be able to see his minutes closer to the 30-minute mark, although head coach Brett Brown may want to get an extended look at Chasson Randle who is in the final week of his 10-day contract. Still, Rodriguez is someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer for those looking for a boost in the assist category. Rotoworld.com Monday, 12:09 pm
  • Revenge: Tim Hardaway Jr. will start vs. NYK
    Tim Hardaway Jr. will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game vs. the Knicks.

    Advice: Revenge game! Dwight Howard is resting, so the Hawks are going to go small with Paul Millsap at center. THJ was already trending up before this news with averages of 16.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 3.0 triples per game in January, so give him a look if those numbers mesh well with your fantasy team. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:50 am
  • Ron Baker starting, Courtney Lee to bench
    Ron Baker is starting at shooting guard on Monday vs. the Hawks, sending Courtney Lee to the bench.

    Advice: Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek threatened to make lineup changes after Sunday's blowout loss to the Raptors, but now we know that he wasn't just blowing off some steam. Baker has had some nice moments this season, but he has very little upside and fantasy owners can simply monitor his progress from the waiver wire. The Knicks' defense takes another hit with this lineup switch. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:20 am
  • Reggie Bullock quiet as fill-in starter
    Reggie Bullock started for the short-handed Pistons on Sunday, but he committed five fouls in 29 minutes to finish with four points, one rebound, one assist and one steal.

    Advice: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) and Jon Leuer (knee) were both out tonight, and the Pistons didn't want to go big with Aron Baynes in a matchup vs. the Lakers. Bullock's playing time was robust, considering his foul trouble, and he's just a short-term option in deeper leagues while KCP is out of commission. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 9:35 pm
  • Ty Lawson exits Sunday's game vs. OKC
    Ty Lawson (ankle) twisted his left ankle and will miss the remainder of Sunday's game against the Thunder.

    Advice: Lawson played 20 minutes and scored four points with four assists, one rebound and one steal before leaving the game. If he misses any time, Darren Collison and Garrett Temple will get a boost. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 8:22 pm
  • Reggie Bullock will start Sunday vs. Lakers
    Reggie Bullock will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Lakers, with Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) unavailable.

    Advice: This likely means that Aron Baynes is headed back to the bench. Bullock is a solid defender, but a pretty low usage rate guy, so he's not all that attractive of an option despite the increased opportunity as a starter. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 11:39 am
  • Brandon Knight (wrist) didn't play
    Brandon Knight showed up on the box score as a "DNP-sprained right wrist" on Saturday.

    Advice: As far as we can tell, there was nothing on Knight before or after the game on Knight's status from the team or the people covering the team right now. Knight was out for the same ailment back on Jan. 3, so take that for what it's worth. Obviously Knight won't be playing much with the Suns wanting to get a look at Tyler Ulis, so he will need a trade or an injury to the starters to have value. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 10:42 am
  • Evan Fournier doesn't have a timetable
    Evan Fournier (heel, foot) doesn't currently have a timetable to return.

    Advice: "I was compensating a lot, so now it’s more than just the heel," Fournier said. "It’s just the bottom of the foot, period. It’s frustrating, man. I could probably keep playing like this, but it’s not getting any better and I’m playing [at] like 60 percent [of my ability]." This is the same injury that sidelined him for five games in a row earlier in the season, so don't expect him to play on Monday vs. the Nuggets or Wednesday vs. the Pelicans. His owners just need to hold onto him for now, while Jodie Meeks is worth a look if you need a short-term boost in triples and points. Rotoworld.com Sunday, 7:24 am
  • Jodie Meeks plays 38 minutes vs. Jazz
    Jodie Meeks scored 12 points with six assists, three rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes on Saturday against the Jazz.

    Advice: He got the start in place of the injured Evan Fournier (foot) and scored in double-figures for the third consecutive game -- he was also used at small forward in this one. Fournier could miss at least the next two games, which would move Meeks into the starting lineup and give him a boost. He can be added in 14-team leagues as long as Fournier is sidelined. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:51 pm
  • Gary Neal works out for Atlanta
    The Hawks worked out Gary Neal and are "strongly leaning" to sign him on a 10-day deal, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

    Advice: The Hawks didn't get anything out of their rookies on Friday, so maybe that's the motivation here. Fantasy owners can wait on adding Neal in almost all cases. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:20 pm
  • Evan Fournier (foot) could miss road trip
    Evan Fournier (foot, heel) could miss the remainder of the Magic's road trip due to the concern of his foot and heel injuries.

    Advice: On top of being out Saturday, he could be out Monday and Wednesday. The interesting thing here is that it sounds like he has problems in two different areas on his right foot. His heel injury was a problem at the end of last month and cost him five games, so he could be looking at a similar amount of time off due to the aggravation. In the meantime, go ahead and add Jodie Meeks in competitive leagues for short-term value. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 5:09 pm
  • Jodie Meeks back in the starting lineup
    Jodie Meeks will start for Evan Fournier (foot) against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: He's basically been the understudy with Fournier has been out. In those six starts, he averaged 12.5 points, 2.7 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.3 steals and 2.3 treys. He is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues until Fournier gets the all clear. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:39 pm
  • Evan Fournier (foot) out, Jodie Meeks starts
    Evan Fournier (foot) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday and Jodie Meeks will start in his place.

    Advice: Fournier is still battling through his heel injury from earlier this month and he just hasn't been right. The Magic are wisely going to rest him up to get him right, and hopefully he should be OK for Monday against the Nuggets. Meeks is worth a look as insurance in deep leagues while Mario Hezonja is on the radar in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 4:34 pm
  • Lou Williams starts, struggles on Saturday
    Lou Williams got the start at small forward for Luol Deng (rest) against the Clippers on Saturday, making 4-of-12 from the field for 13 points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

    Advice: The Lakers used him as a small-ball three in the preseason and thought it might work against Austin Rivers, but it didn't go as planned. Williams is really seeing a sharp decline in playing time, averaging just 19.0 per game in his previous January games. The Lakers are playing their younger guys more, so he's a cut candidate in shallower formats due to his trouble with efficiency. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 2:57 pm
  • Lou Williams listed as starter vs. Clippers
    Lou Williams is listed as the starter against the Clippers on Saturday for Luol Deng (rest).

    Advice: The Clippers also go small with Austin Rivers as their third starting guard, so it's likely a matchup move. Brandon Ingram should still get a nice amount of minutes off the bench while Williams has a chance for 30 minutes tonight as well. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 12:24 pm
  • Evan Fournier (foot) questionable vs. Jazz
    Evan Fournier (sore right foot) is questionable to play against the Jazz on Saturday.

    Advice: He really doesn't look right since returning from his heel injury. In those five games, Fournier averaged 11.8 points, 3.6 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.0 treys on 36.1 percent from the field. On a back-to-back set, it makes a lot of sense to just rest him before a revenge game in Denver on Monday. If he is out, Jodie Meeks would be thrust into the starting lineup while Mario Hezonja could add to his renewed role in the rotation. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 11:19 am
  • Ty Lawson scores 17 points vs. Cavs
    Ty Lawson scored 17 points with four rebounds, four assists and three turnovers in 26 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

    Advice: The Kings are really starting to ditch the two-PG lineups, which is going to hurt Lawson and Darren Collison, who scored 13 points with one rebound, four assists and two 3-pointers. Lawson is trending back down and is only a borderline asset in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:53 pm
  • Reggie Bullock returns from 25-game absence
    Reggie Bullock returned from a 25-game absence on Friday vs. the Jazz and scored seven points on 3-of-6 shooting with two rebounds, three assists and two steals.

    Advice: Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (shoulder) was out and the game was a blowout, but it was still a surprise to see Bullock log a season-high 26 minutes right out of the gate. Coach Stan Van Gundy loves him and the Pistons don't have great depth, so maybe he earns some minutes going forward. Most fantasy owners can ignore him for now. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:28 pm
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. scores 23 points
    Tim Hardway Jr. scored 23 points with two rebounds, two assists, one block, three steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Friday.

    Advice: We have a four-game sample on Hardaway post-Kyle Korver and it's going well. In those four, he averaged 17.0 points, 3.0 boards, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.3 treys. That's good enough to make him a top-50 player in that span. Yeah, he won't be this good, but he has to be picked up in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 9:37 pm
  • Cory Joseph makes all seven from field
    Cory Joseph made all seven shots from the field for 16 points against the Nets on Friday with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes.

    Advice: He was limping in the first half after stepping on Rondae Hollis-Jefferson's foot, but he didn't need to miss time after the trainers looked at him briefly. His 7-of-7 shooting line marked his highest total in a game with 100 percent from the field, topping his 6-of-6 from Apr. 8, 2016. Joseph won't have too much value while Kyle Lowry is playing so many minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:06 pm
  • Sergio Rodriguez scores 11 in 16 minutes
    Sergio Rodriguez scored 11 points with one rebound, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 16 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

    Advice: T.J. McConnell clearly has the starting job locked up and looks like he'll get 30-33 minutes most nights, so Rodriguez will be picking up the scraps. If you haven't dropped him yet in a standard league, go for it. He may have value in deep leagues. Rotoworld.com Friday, 7:03 pm
  • Marco Belinelli doesn't benefit without Lamb
    Marco Belinelli scored six points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and five turnovers in 22 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

    Advice: He surprisingly didn't really benefit with Jeremy Lamb (foot) out of the lineup. Coach Steve Clifford used a little Ramon Sessions at the two and we even saw Treveon Graham get first-half minutes. Leave Belinelli on the wire for now. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:39 pm
  • Reggie Bullock unlikely to play
    Reggie Bullock (personal) is unlikely to play on Friday against the Jazz.

    Advice: He is back with the team and there is a chance he plays. If he doesn't, Stanley Johnson would be looking at big minutes. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:49 pm
  • Reggie Bullock expected back w/ team
    Coach Stan Van Gundy said that Reggie Bullock (personal) will rejoin the Pistons on Friday in Salt Lake City.

    Advice: Bullock who has missed the last 25 games with a torn meniscus, was attending a family matter and is expected to be back with the team on Friday. He can be left on waivers, as he will likely not have a big role in the Pistons rotation. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:30 pm
  • Jodie Meeks scores 14 points w/ five steals
    Jodie Meeks led Orlando's second unit on Wednesday with 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting, adding five rebounds, two assists and a season-high five steals in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Two of Meeks' makes came from downtown and he didn't commit any turnovers, solidifying a very nice game for the few owners who started him tonight. He was coming off two invisible performances, and is marginalized most nights when Evan Fournier is healthy, so most owners should leave him drifting on the wire. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:23 pm
  • Evan Fournier struggles in 25 minutes
    Evan Fournier struggled throughout Wednesday's 105-96 loss to the Clippers, going just 3-of-8 from the field for eight points, two rebounds, two assists and two turnovers in 25 minutes.

    Advice: Beat writer Josh Robbins speculated that Fournier's heel injury might still be an issue, but foul trouble took a toll and he still played the final eight minutes. He also looked very good on Sunday (19 points in 34 minutes) and was coming off two days of rest. We'll let you know if there's a hint of injury concern, but for now owners should start him with confidence vs. the Blazers on Friday. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 11:21 pm
  • Marco Belinelli scores 15 with six dimes
    Marco Belinelli, who had hit just 3-of-30 shots over his last three games, hit 6-of-13 and three 3-pointers for 15 points, three rebounds and six assists in Tuesday's loss to the Rockets.

    Advice: Belinelli will see some extra looks and minutes as long as Nicolas Batum is out with a knee injury, but a timeshare with Jeremy Lamb is going to hurt him. Belinelli was playing fairly well before going down with a sprained ankle and this is the first time he's looked good since returning four games ago. If you need a shooting guard who can hit 3-pointers and hand out assists, Belinelli might be worth a flier right now. But he'd be a little more enticing if he was starting for Batum, and not Lamb.

  • Report: Hawks shopping Tim Hardaway Jr.
    The Hawks are reportedly shopping Tim Hardaway Jr.

    Advice: Hardaway Jr. can reportedly be had for just some second-round picks, so Atlanta should be able to strike a deal with someone. The Hawks are reportedly going with the trade route because they don't want to pay Hardaway Jr. as a restricted free agent this offseason, but they also don't want to lose him for nothing. If the Hawks are serious about getting Hardaway Jr. off the books, it would make sense to start showcasing him with the second unit. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:43 pm
  • Sergio Rodriguez returned to action on Sunday January 8. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 11:59 pm
  • Lou Williams struggles in 17 minutes Sunday
    Lou Williams struggled on Sunday with 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting, going 0-of-7 from deep with three assists and one rebound in 17 minutes.

    Advice: Williams took a hard elbow to the face on Sunday, but he shook it off and that wasn't the cause of his poor performance. The veteran's efficiency has waned in January, with just 37.3 percent shooting, and he's likely to take a step back as the Lakers emphasize player development in the coming months.

  • Reggie Bullock (meniscus) close to return
    Reggie Bullock (torn meniscus) didn't play on Sunday, but coach Stan Van Gundy said he's "trending toward being ready."

    Advice: "I think he wants to get in a couple practices," Van Gundy said on Saturday. "Quite honestly, I’d be comfortable putting him in a game right now." Stanley Johnson played 25 minutes on Sunday while Darrun Hilliard picked up a DNP-CD, and Van Gundy seems eager to have an alternative wing player in his second unit. We'll consider Bullock day-to-day going forward. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 10:25 pm
  • Ty Lawson scores 15 points in loss to GSW
    Ty Lawson finished Sunday's home loss with 15 points, three assists and two rebounds in 22 minutes.

    Advice: Lawson came off the bench tonight and he continues to bounce around the rotation depending upon matchups and the whims of coach Dave Joerger. The good news is that he made 4-of-8 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs tonight, so it wasn't that bad of a return for his owners. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 9:55 pm
  • Ty Lawson heads to the bench
    Ty Lawson will move to the bench in Sunday’s game against the Warriors.

    Advice: With Garrett Temple starting at shooting guard, Darren Collison will start at point guard. Anthony Tolliver also got the start, moving Matt Barnes to the bench as well. Lawson's minutes should not be affected much by this move. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 6:11 pm
  • Sergio Rodriguez logs 12 mins off the bench
    Sergio Rodriguez (ankle) logged 12 minutes off the bench in his return to action on Sunday, hitting 2-of-6 shots on his way to four points, three assists and one turnover.

    Advice: Rodriguez was eased into things after spending the previous three games on the sidelines with an ankle injury, but as the lesser defender between T.J. McConnell and himself, there are no guarantees he’ll immediately be re-inserted back into the starting five once he’s fully up to speed. As a reserve in Philly, Rodriguez can remain on the wire in most settings. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 11:54 am
  • Sergio Rodriguez (ankle) is available Sunday
    Sergio Rodriguez (ankle) is available for Sunday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: He's going to come off the bench behind T.J. McConnell and that move will likely stick because McConnell has been lighting it up with the first unit. Rodirguez's minutes will take a hit in the second unit and he's just an assist specialist for now. Rotoworld.com Jan 8, 7:36 am
  • Marco Belinelli continues to struggle
    Marco Belinelli hit 2-of-10 shots for five points with four rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in Saturday’s 85-102 loss to the Spurs.

    Advice: With Nicolas Batum (knee) sidelined, Belinelli played 26 minutes off the bench. He was outproduced by Jeremy Lamb who got the start and played 28 minutes. Belinelli continues to struggle with his shot since returning from injury, hitting just 3-of-30 field goals in his last three games. That being said, so long as Batum is out, Belinelli should continue to see a boost in minutes. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 10:08 pm
  • Tim Hardaway Jr. scores 22 points vs. DAL
    Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 22 points with two rebounds, three assists and five 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Mavs on Saturday.

    Advice: He is going to be the main man in the second unit with most of the other bench guys holding low usage rates. Even before this game, he was off to a strong start in 2017 with averages of 18.3 points, 4.3 boards, 1.0 assists and 4.0 treys. He's making a case to be added in standard leagues with a Nick Young-esque kind of upside. Rotoworld.com Jan 7, 9:14 pm
