Player Notes

  • Julius Randle's future with Knicks is uncertain
    According to Ian Begley of SNY, Knicks president Leon Rose would like to add a big who can space the floor this offseason. 

    Advice: To be clear, this is in addition to a lead guard that can shoot such as LaMelo Ball for example. And while Begley notes that Julius Randle isn't a lock to be traded, he does see it as a viable possibility. And that makes sense, as Randle is a poor shooter and doesn't mesh well with RJ Barrett. In fact, the Knicks were outscored by seven points per 100 possessions with those two on the floor. This also makes the Knicks' rumored interest in Christian Wood even more legit.  Rotoworld.com Today, 7:49 am
  • Opinion: Harry Giles likely to leave Kings as FA?
    Kings beat writer Jason Jones believes that "[Harry] Giles' best opportunity will likely come with another team."

    Advice: Richaun Holmes broke out in 2019-20, posting top-50 fantasy value before a torn labrum in his right shoulder shut him down. Marvin Bagley should earn minutes at center but Alex Len will be an unrestricted free agent, so there could be a narrow path for Giles to earn playing time in Sacramento. His fantasy value would probably be better served in another city. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:41 am
  • Clint Capela (foot) could play if season resumes
    Clint Capela (right foot plantar fasciitis) is "feeling better" and could play if the 2019-20 season resumes.

    Advice: There's no guarantee the Hawks will even play if the league opens back up, but Hawks president and GM Travis Schlenk hopes his team gets the chance. "Our guys are excited about the opportunity to get back to it," Schlenk said. "Clint says he's feeling better, and there's a possibility that we can get him back on the court. Practicing and playing five games would be valuable to us." Capela hasn't played since Jan. 29 and it's understandable that the Hawks would like to see their newly-acquired center play alongside Trae Young, John Collins and company. Fantasy owners should be particularly attuned to the impact Capela might have on Collins, who will inevitably earn fewer minutes at the center position. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:26 am

  • Mo Bamba adds muscle during quarantine
    Magic center Mo Bamba says he's gained 28 pounds during the quarantine, but that most of it is muscle.

    Advice: "I’ve worked my tail off during this quarantine,’’ Bamba said. "This is going to sound weird, but I put on probably about 28 pounds since quarantine (started),’’ Bamba said while laughing. "We did the whole body (composition) testing when we got back in (the Magic practice facility) and I’ve only added about 2.5 percent body fat. So, a lot of it is muscle and I can’t wait to get back out there and work.’’ It sounds like Bamba is ready to go and he was playing well before the shutdown, tying his career high with 15 points, 10 rebounds, four blocks and three 3-pointers in just 17 minutes against the Hawks on Feb. 26.  Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 3:45 pm
  • Sixers to open facility on Wednesday
    The Sixers will open their practice facility in Camden, NJ, on Wednesday.

    Advice: That will put the number of NBA teams open for voluntary workouts at 22. The teams who have yet to open are the Celtics, Knicks, Bulls, Pistons, Wizards, Mavericks, Spurs and Warriors. The NHL released its resumption plan on Tuesday and the NBA appears to be narrowing down options for a possible return in July or August in Orlando.  Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:42 pm
