Player Notes

  • Harry Giles (thigh) will not return Thursday
    Harry Giles (left thigh contusion) will not return Thursday against the Mavs.

    Advice: He was grabbing near his knee and had the training staff look at him near the bench about 45 minutes prior to this news. The optimistic side of this that it isn't to his knees, which have bothered him since his high-school days. However, the Kings may want to be careful with Giles given his injury history. Marvin Bagley could see more minutes at the five to open up minutes for Nemanja Bjelica and Bogdan Bogdanovic, or maybe Kosta Koufos sees more run. Besides Bagley needing to be owned everywhere and maybe a small bump to Bjelica, there isn't much of an add to make. This also could help Willie Cauley-Stein with a longer leash.

  • Trae Young scores 23 with 11 dimes
    Trae Young scored 23 points during a comeback 117-114 win over the Jazz on Thursday, adding two rebounds, 11 assists, five turnovers and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

    Advice: It's an impressive win for the Hawks to snap their three-game losing streak while also snapping Utah's five-game winning streak. Young continues his post-break tear, averaging 25.0 points, 4.6 boards, 8.5 dimes, 0.7 steals and 2.8 treys on a 45/42/89 shooting line in his previous games since All-Star. His shot-selection woes have subsided with Trae possibly moving into early-round ADP next year for standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:10 pm
  • Dewayne Dedmon puts up 18 and 9 on Jazz
    Dewayne Dedmon fared well against the Jazz on Thursday with 18 points, nine rebounds, two assists, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

    Advice: Dedmon is alive again. His playing time had been on the rise over his previous three, and he puts up his best game since returning from a knee issue on Mar. 10. In his last five, Dedmon averaged 9.4 points, 9.8 boards, 1.4 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.4 treys. He should be owned in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:06 pm
  • John Collins quiet against the Jazz
    John Collins was held in check against the Jazz on Thursday, scoring nine points with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer before fouling out in 27 minutes.

    Advice: Any established big man gets an auto-pass against the Jazz, and that's the case here. If you're looking for a positive, coach Lloyd Pierce did even use him against Rudy Gobert in the first half. Collins is locked in to his role as he continues to grow next to Trae Young.

  • Torrey Craig nets 15 in win over Wizards
    Torrey Craig scored 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting with one rebound, four assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 25 minutes against the Wizards on Thursday.

    Advice: After playing just seven seconds against the Pacers on Saturday, Craig has turned in two solid performances. Juancho Hernangomez and Isaiah Thomas have been out of coach Mike Malone's rotation, giving Craig more minutes. The Nuggets have four games in each of the next two weeks so he may have worked his way back onto the deep-league radar. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:57 pm
