Player Notes

  • Spencer Dinwiddie drops career-high 13 dimes
    Spencer Dinwiddie made 3-of-13 from the field for nine points with one rebound, two steals and a career-high 13 assists against the Spurs on Wednesday.

    Advice: With no turnovers as well, that makes this game the most assists for a Net without a turnover since Jason Kidd's 13 way back in 2004. Dinwiddie has been superb at the point and he's clearly earned minutes even when D'Angelo Russell returns, which could come on Friday. His per-minute numbers are fantastic with DAR, so Dinwiddie should still be held in all leagues. Rotoworld.com 31 minutes ago
  • Anthony Tolliver starts 3Q for Bullock
    Anthony Tolliver started the second half for Reggie Bullock against the Raptors on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Pistons need some size after the Raptors handled them inside. This doesn't really change Tolliver's fantasy value. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:57 pm
  • Tyler Johnson thinks he's more day-to-day
    Tyler Johnson (ankle) is thinking his injury is in terms of days and not weeks.

    Advice: That's good news and the Heat are reportedly not looking to give him an MRI. Johnson is not going to play on Wednesday, which means the Heat could shift Justise Winslow over to the two. Winslow said he's "comfortable" with playing there, or the Heat could go with Derrick Jones Jr. or Derrick Walton Jr. to start. Wayne Ellington also benefits in a big way and should be firing away from deep. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:02 pm

  • Brown hints Bayless will start on Thursday
    Brett Brown hinted that Jerryd Bayless will be in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Celtics, with J.J. Redick (leg) unavailable.

    Advice: Brown said that Bayless will be "first up" to fill Redick's spot, and said he'll also try to find more minutes for guys like Timothe Luwawu and Justin Anderson. As a starter this season, Bayless owns averages of 11.0 points, 2.1 triples and 1.5 assists per contest on 44.9% shooting, so he could be someone to think about as a deep league streamer on Thursday.

  • Derrick Rose, Shumpert practice on Wednesday
    Derrick Rose (ankle) and Iman Shumpert (knee) practiced on Wednesday.

    Advice: Rose said he thinks he'll be able to give it a go on Thursday against the Magic, but he wants to test his ankle at shootaround before making an official decision. That said, as long as the Cavs are healthy, neither of these guys will be on the floor enough to make an impact in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Today, 10:04 am
