Player Notes

  • Kristaps Porzingis could return Wednesday
    Kristaps Porzingis (Achilles) could get back to the court for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

    Advice: Head coach Jeff Hornacek also hinted that he'd like to start Porzingis at center with Carmelo Anthony moving to the four-spot, a move that would result in Joakim Noah going to the bench, and that demotion likely wouldn't go over very well with the underperforming 31-year-old center who is due $17 million this season. The losses in New York have been piling up as of late, so Hornacek needs to make some changes, even if it upsets the veterans. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:15 pm
  • Tarik Black (ankle) expected to play Tuesday
    Tarik Black (left ankle) is expected to play Tuesday vs. Denver.

    Advice: He was a full participant during shootaround, so he should be out there tonight. However, Black is only averaging 5.8 points and 5.1 rebounds per game this season, so his playing status is largely irrelevant in fantasy hoops. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:24 am

  • Clarkson, Black expected to play on Tuesday
    Jordan Clarkson (ankle) and Tarik Black (ankle) are expected to play Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

    Advice: Both guys were active at shootaround, and this ankle injury for Clarkson seemingly came out of nowhere (he hasn't missed any games because of it), so owners can go ahead and get him on the active roster. We'll have official confirmation closer to tip-off. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:22 am
  • Jokic leads offensive revival in Denver
    The Nuggets have been one of the NBA's most efficient and effective offenses since sticking with Nikola Jokic as the team's starting center.

    Advice: Over the last month, the Nuggets are top-10 in the league in field goals made, field goal accuracy, 3-point accuracy, 3-point field goals made. Jokic has been the centerpiece of the offense, and the engine driving them forward. Over his last 14 games, Jokic is averaging 19.2 points, 9.1 rebounds and 5.4 assists. He's been top-15 overall fantasy producer over this stretch. The sky is the limit for this kid over the second half of the season Rotoworld.com Today, 7:31 am
  • Joe Ingles scores 11 in start for Jazz
    Joe Ingles started for Rodney Hood (knee) and hit 4-of-6 shots and three 3-pointers for 11 points, two rebounds, five assists and two steals in 34 minutes of Monday's 106-101 win over the Suns.

    Advice: The Jazz play two more times this week, meaning Ingles should have at least a couple more starts in him with Hood out for at least a couple weeks. If you have dead weight you want to cut to take advantage of Ingles' new opportunity, go for it. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:00 pm
