Player Notes

  • P.J. Tucker fails to score in 21 minutes
    P.J. Tucker finished with one steal and two turnovers in 21 minutes against the Jazz on Tuesday.

    Advice: We're not kidding. Tucker didn't attempt a shot and failed to add any assists, rebounds or blocks. The Suns were giving him a ton of minutes prior to Tuesday and there's no word of any injury. Tucker had a nice two-game run last week with 17 points against the Hawks on Nov. 30 and 21 points against the Nuggets on Nov. 27, but feel free to move on unless he gets hot again.

  • Boris Diaw scores 13 points in win
    Boris Diaw scored a season-high 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting with six assists, four rebounds, one triple and two turnovers in 33 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Diaw's minutes have gone up in five straight games, so he's suddenly on the radar again in very deep leagues. This was his second game in a row with double-digit points, and Trey Lyles didn't help himself with a scoreless dud. His value will be shattered once Derrick Favors (knee) returns.

  • Kyle Anderson breaks loose on Tuesday
    Kyle Anderson played 22 minutes off the bench and had 11 points, a 3-pointer, six rebounds, four assists and a block on 2-of-4 shooting in Tuesday's 105-91 win over the Timberwolves.

    Advice: Anderson had scored a total of six points in his previous four games, so don't get too excited. But with Danny Green scoring just five points last night, and averaging just 7.5 points in his 13 games this season, Anderson is worth keeping an eye on in case Gregg Popovich grows tired of Green's struggles. But for now, Anderson belongs on waivers, along with Green. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:03 pm
  • Joe Johnson scores 13 points vs. Suns
    Joe Johnson scored 13 points on 4-of-10 shooting against the Suns on Tuesday.

    Advice: The veteran wing added two rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and three triples in 29 minutes. Rodney Hood tweaked his right hamstring and didn't return, so Johnson is worth a look for owners in need of short-term value. The last time Hood missed a game on Dec. 1, Johnson started and scored 18 points in 33 minutes. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:01 pm
  • Joakim Noah double-doubles in 14 minutes
    Joakim Noah double-doubled in just 14 minutes on Tuesday vs. the Heat, scoring 10 points with 10 rebounds.

    Advice: He shot an efficient 5-of-6 from the field with a pair of assists, but he couldn't stay out of foul trouble trying to contain Hassan Whiteside. Kyle O'Quinn has been making a case for more minutes recently and had another big game with 12 points, seven rebounds and two blocks off the bench, so maybe this becomes a timeshare. Regardless, Noah is more of a deep-league asset this season until he proves otherwise. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:05 pm
