Player Notes

  • Andre Drummond grabs 15 boards
    Andre Drummond scored 11 points with 15 rebounds, five assists, one steal and three blocks in 35 minutes against the Pacers during a 107-100 loss on Friday.

    Advice: This was a bad loss for the Pistons with a 22-point lead during the third quarter. As for Drummond, that makes it 15 straight games with 12-plus boards, which puts him one shy of Moses Malone's record of 16 straight games with 12-plus boards to start an NBA season. While Drummond's free throw shooting has dropped from that absurd 77.8 percent he had as of Nov. 7, at least he's been at 50 percent or better in each of his last four games. Drummond is a playing big minutes and has a chance at a 20-15 in almost any matchup. Rotoworld.com 22 minutes ago
  • Donovan Mitchell starting at point guard
    Donovan Mitchell will start at point guard against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: This news was somewhat easy to see from a mile away with Ricky Rubio (Achilles) out, and based on how Mitchell played 32 minutes at point guard in the last three games. He's likely going to play big minutes as Utah tries to climb out of their bad start, so Mitchell could become a very valuable asset. He should be owned in all leagues. Meanwhile, all of the other wings benefit by Mitchell moving over, especially Alec Burks. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:02 pm
  • DeAndre Bembry (wrist) probable vs. Boston
    DeAndre Bembry (wrist) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday against the Celtics.

    Advice: This is big news for the Hawks and their razor-thin rotation. Both Bembry and Taurean Prince can play several positions, so they're likely going to see a decent amount of minutes on Saturday, especially if Luke Babbitt can't go. Bembry was very impressive this offseason and he's going to be in the rotation on a bad team, so he's an attractive pickup in deeper leagues with some mysterious upside. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:45 pm

  • Larry Nance Jr. (hand) cleared for practice
    Larry Nance Jr. (hand) has been cleared to return to practice.

    Advice: This is awesome news after his Nov. 2 fracture to his hand. Coach Luke Walton said he's surprised how far along Nance is, so there's a small chance he could slightly beat his 4-6 week timetable. Nance was taking shots on Wednesday with a small brace, so he is almost there. It'll be really interesting to see how Kyle Kuzma fits in here, and Nance has played some center in his time. Nance is a low-end stash for now and Kuzma owners shouldn't worry too much. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:10 pm

  • Greg Monroe scores 20 points with 11 boards
    Greg Monroe scored 20 points in his Suns debut on Thursday, adding 11 rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in 26 minutes during a blowout loss to the Rockets.

    Advice: The Rockets went right at him early in the game and it's part of the reason the Suns were out of it early. The Suns are almost certainly going to be trading him or buying him out at some point because of his expiring contract and maybe this will help them move that along faster than expected. His long-term upside doesn't sound great, but the Suns really don't have much direction. If you want to pick him up to use him before he's dealt and you need a big man, it's not a bad idea.
