Player Notes

  • Jordan Mickey getting the start for Whiteside
    Goran Dragic, Dion Waiters, Josh Richardson, James Johnson and Jordan Mickey will start against the Pacers on Saturday.

    Advice: Mickey was outstanding in the preseason, so he'll get a longer look tonight with Hassan Whiteside out. He played well enough to give him a look as a DFS punt, but most owners shouldn't add him in season long. Rotoworld.com Today, 4:28 pm
  • Boban Marjanovic is active vs. Knicks
    Boban Marjanovic is active and Eric Moreland is inactive against the Knicks on Saturday.

    Advice: He gets a great matchup here and the Knicks aren't really a strong pick-and-roll team, so maybe Boban gets run as the backup five man. If he does, coach Stan Van Gundy has said he wants him to score with two feet in the paint. Free Boban. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:46 pm
  • Anthony Davis shows well against Golden State
    Anthony Davis posted 32 points with 16 rebounds, five assists, two steals and a blocked shot in Friday's loss against the Warriors.

    Advice: Davis is the only player with at least 35 points and 15 rebounds in a game against the Warriors since 2012-13, and he has accomplished the feat twice. He was an efficient 14-of-19 from the field and he bagged two 3-pointers in the showdown against the defending champs. He and DeMarcus Cousins were absolute beasts in the frontcourt, but no one else on the Pels stepped up to lend them a hand. If New Orleans can get some contributions outside of Boogie and The Brow, they could be a handful. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:11 pm
  • Marreese Speights scores three points
    Marreese Speights scored three points with two rebounds and one 3-pointer in three minutes against the Nets on Friday.

    Advice: Mo Buckets preseason usage rate: 39.1. Mo Buckets regular season usage rate: 41.0. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:47 pm
  • Shane Larkin plays 19 minutes
    Shane Larkin played 19 minutes on Friday vs. the 76ers, scoring 10 points with four assists, two rebounds and two 3-pointers.

    Advice: He played a total of five minutes prior to this game, but entered the rotation with Marcus Smart (ankles) sidelined. Larkin is hoping to make the most of his second shot in the NBA after spending time overseas and he looked more than capable of contributing Friday, but the reality is that he isn't going to play much when Smart comes back.
