Player Notes

  • Hassan Whiteside (personal) to play Friday
    Hassan Whiteside (personal) practiced with the team in Memphis on Thursday and will return to game action Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Whiteside missed four games following the birth of his son, Jayden Legend Whiteside. Hassan worked on conditioning Tuesday and Wednesday in Miami with a player development coach and is expected to re-enter the starting lineup, which would bump Bam Adebayo back to the bench.

  • Richaun Holmes scores 11 in 22 minutes
    Richaun Holmes scored 11 points with seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and one block in 22 minutes against the Mavs on Thursday.

    Advice: He took a shot to the face and was able to return. Holmes has been the best big man on the roster lately, and coach Igor Kokoskov has said his energy level is a talent for the former 76er. It may be closer to a 50/50 minutes split with Deandre Ayton, and Holmes may also get the garbage time. He's done more than enough lately to warrant an add in 12-team leagues.

  • Dirk Nowitzki makes season debut
    Dirk Nowitzki made his season debut on Thursday, scoring two points wit one rebound in six minutes against the Suns.

    Advice: He only played in the first half with a pre-determined restriction. Nowitzki set the record for most seasons with one franchise, but he likely won't be making a huge impact for the next couple weeks. Nowitzki may not even play in back-to-back sets at all, so he may be a tough fantasy asset to hold until proven otherwise. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:56 pm
  • Nikola Vucevic scores 26 points in Mexico
    Nikola Vucevic scored 26 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Bulls during a 97-91 win in Mexico City on Thursday.

    Advice: He destroyed the Bulls late with 10 points in the final 5:05. The Magic still sit in the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference with a 1.5-game cushion over the ninth-place Heat, and the Magic get six of their next seven at home. Vooch is crushing as a first-round value in standard leagues, and his owners will be hoping his squad can stay in the hunt for a playoff spot. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:50 pm
  • Bobby Portis scores 15 in 22 minutes
    Bobby Portis scored 15 points off the bench with seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Magic on Thursday.

    Advice: Coach Jim Boylen said Portis was going to be around 22-26 minutes in this game, so he was right on target. More importantly, Jabari Parker is now likely out of the rotation in most games, so the backup PF minutes should go to Portis. He should also get run at the five as the Bulls dial back Robin Lopez, so he should be worth owning in standard leagues. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:16 pm
