  • Allen Crabbe returns with 22 points in win
    Allen Crabbe returned from an illness and hit 7-of-10 shots and four 3-pointers for 22 points, three rebounds, two assists and a block, and also hit 4-of-4 free throws in 27 minutes of Monday's 118-115 win over the Grizzlies.

    Advice: Crabbe had missed his last two games with the illness, but looked great tonight. If he's available in your league, give him a look, as the Nets have three more games this week and Crabbe is back in the starting lineup. Yesterday, 8:24 pm

  • Draymond Green diagnosed w/ pelvic contusion
    Draymond Green has been diagnosed with a pelvic contusion.

    Advice: He was already ruled out for the remainder of Monday's game prior to this report. X-rays came back negative, but like we've seen the Warriors do with their other stars, they will be extra cautious. For now, Green should be considered questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hawks. Jordan Bell started the second half and would be in line for more run along with Kevon Looney if Green misses time. Yesterday, 8:13 pm
  • JaMychal Green goes for 14 & 16 in loss
    JaMychal Green hit 7-of-8 shots for 14 points, 16 rebounds, three assists, three steals and a block in 29 minutes of Monday's 118-115 loss to the Nets.

    Advice: Green's now had double figures in rebounds in four of his last five games, and double digits in scoring in the same number of games, averaging 12.2 points, 10.8 rebounds and 1.2 steals over his last five. He should be starting for all fantasy teams right now. Yesterday, 7:55 pm
  • Noah Vonleh grabs 12 rebounds in loss
    Noah Vonleh (toe) returned from a one-game absence on Monday vs. the Knicks, grabbing a team-high 12 rebounds with nine points, one assist and one triple in 26 minutes.

    Advice: Robin Lopez has been benched for two straight games for tanking reasons, and the Bulls continue to list Lauri Markkanen as "day-to-day." There are probably better options on your waiver wire, but Vonleh could have some low-end value in deeper leagues until Markkanen comes back. In his previous two games, Vonleh averaged 7.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 29.9 minutes. Yesterday, 7:55 pm
  • Khris Middleton drops 30 on Cavs
    Khris Middleton hit 11-of-16 shots, five 3-pointers and hit 3-of-3 free throws for 30 points, five boards, two assists, two steals and a block in 38 minutes of Monday's 124-117 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Middleton has been really good for most of the season and is rolling right now, averaging 25.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 3.0 3-pointers on 59 percent shooting over his last five. Middleton's returning third-round fantasy value on the season and is a must-start player down the stretch. Yesterday, 7:18 pm
  • Giannis Antetokounmpo goes off in loss
    Giannis Antetokounmpo hit 13-of-20 shots and 11-of-11 free throws for 37 points, 11 rebounds, five assists and a steal in 39 minutes of Monday's 124-117 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Giannis did his best to fend off LeBron James, but LeBron had a 40-point triple-double and the Cavs got the win. Giannis has scored at least 33 in three straight games and is averaging 31.2 points, 9.8 boards, 5.6 rebounds, 2.0 steals, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 3-pointers on 53 percent shooting over his last five games. He's aptly nicknamed, no doubt. Yesterday, 7:15 pm
  • Victor Oladipo scores 20 with three steals
    Victor Oladipo hit 8-of-15 shots and a 3-pointer for 20 points, four rebounds and three steals in 32 minutes of Monday's win over the Lakers.

    Advice: That gives him a 54-game streak of at least one steal per game, and a seven-game streak with at least two steals. He's now swiped at least three steals in four of his last five games and is averaging 18.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 2.8 steals and 1.2 3-pointers over his last five, as the Pacers continue to fight for playoff position in the East. They're currently at No. 4, sitting a 1/2 games behind the No. 3 Cavaliers, and a 1/2 game ahead of the No. 5 Wizards. Yesterday, 7:04 pm
  • Dario Saric held to five points vs. Hornets
    Dario Saric was held to just five points vs. the Hornets on Monday, hitting 2-of-9 shots.

    Advice: Despite finishing with a +33 in 27 minutes, Saric added a mere three assists, one rebound and one triple. He's been one of Philly's most consistent players this season and even had a streak of 41 games with at least 10 points that ended in early March. He's been cold over his last two games with a combined 14 points on 6-of-19 shooting, but he'll get three more games to redeem himself this week. Fantasy owners should stick with him. Yesterday, 6:52 pm
  • Julius Randle still crushing it for Lakers
    Julius Randle had 21 points, nine boards, three assists and a steal in Monday's loss to the Pacers.

    Advice: He's scored at least 21 points in five straight games and is averaging a ridiculous 26 points, 11.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists and is shooting 63 percent from the field over his last five games. And it's nice to see him, Kyle Kuzma and Brook Lopez all flourishing together for the Lakers. Yesterday, 6:45 pm
  • Joel Embiid scores 25 w/ 19 boards, 9 TOs
    Joel Embiid scored 25 points and matched his career-high with 19 rebounds in Monday's 108-94 win over the Hornets.

    Advice: The Process hit 10-of-17 shots and 4-of-6 free throws with two assists, four triples and four blocks, but he was a little careless with the ball as he racked up a career-high nine turnovers. He attempted six triples on the night which is what coach Brett Brown asked him to do recently, and he made his 100th career triple in this game which makes him one of 10 7-footers in the NBA with at least 100 treys over the past two seasons. Yesterday, 6:26 pm
  • Joe Harris back to the bench
    Joe Harris will return to the bench on Monday vs. the Grizzlies.

    Advice: This is an expected move with Allen Crabbe returning from his illness. The Nets do play four times this week, so Harris is still an option in deeper leagues for his efficient 3-point shooting. Yesterday, 2:58 pm

  • Tyler Zeller (ribs) will not play Monday
    Tyler Zeller (sore ribs) will not play on Monday vs. the Cavaliers.

    Advice: Zeller is still feeling discomfort and contact is an issue. Thon Maker and Marshall Plumlee will provide depth behind John Henson, but the Bucks may go small against the Cavaliers with Giannis Antetokounmpo picking up some minutes at the five. Henson is the only true center you can trust. Yesterday, 2:48 pm
  • MRI comes back clean on Warren's knee
    An MRI taken on T.J. Warren's sprained left knee came back clean, but he did not practice on Monday and is doubtful to play Tuesday vs. Detroit.

    Advice: The Suns will be in no rush to bring Warren back, and with the next game being a Friday-Saturday back-to-back set, Warren might only be playing in one game this week at best. He's a mid-round guy, but also doesn't do much for you outside of points, and at this juncture in the fantasy season, it's tough to justify hanging onto injured guys if you don't have an IR-spot. Devin Booker (hand) is also questionable to play on Tuesday, so Josh Jackson could be extremely busy tomorrow. Yesterday, 1:48 pm
  • Shabazz Napier (toe) questionable for Tuesday
    Shabazz Napier (left big toe) is questionable to play Tuesday vs. the Rockets.

    Advice: This is the same toe issue that forced Napier to miss a game back in February, but we'll have a better idea on his status for tomorrow's game based on his activity level at shootaround. If Napier is forced to the sidelines, Evan Turner would likely pick up the majority of his minutes. Stay tuned. Yesterday, 1:17 pm
  • Bogdan Bogdanovic (hamstring) out Monday
    Bogdan Bogdanovic (sore left hamstring) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Pistons.

    Advice: This hamstring issue is coming out of nowhere, but the fact that he's simply dealing with "soreness" suggests his absence from tonight's game is precautionary more than anything else. Buddy Hield and De'Aaron Fox should see an uptick in usage with Bogdanovic out, and Garrett Temple could see an uptick in minutes. The Kings play again on Thursday vs. the Hawks, and for now, we'll be considering Bogdanovic questionable for that one. Yesterday, 12:27 pm
  • Evan Fournier, Ross 'not close' to a return
    Evan Fournier (left knee sprain) and Terrence Ross (right knee) are still "not close" to making a return to the court.

    Advice: Fournier has been out since March 8, and with no clear return date in sight, he belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues; the same goes for Ross. Jonathon Simmons and Mario Hezonja will pick up the slack in their absence, with Simmons offering a bit more upside. Yesterday, 12:26 pm
  • Vince Carter will be available Monday
    Vince Carter will be available on Monday vs. the Pistons.

    Advice: He was away from the team due to a death in his family. He was averaging 6.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 triples in March before leaving the team, so there's not much fantasy appeal here. Yesterday, 10:46 am
  • Cody Zeller (knee) ruled out Monday
    Cody Zeller (knee) has been ruled out of Monday's game vs. the 76ers.

    Advice: This will be his fifth straight game on the shelf and he doesn't have a target date. The Hornets are seven losses behind the No. 8 seed, so they will continue to be cautious. Hornets coach Steve Clifford has been critical of Willy Hernangomez, but he liked what he saw in his last game vs. the Knicks and it sounds like he will get the backup center minutes instead of Frank Kaminsky. Yesterday, 9:25 am
  • Aaron Gordon clears concussion protocol
    Aaron Gordon has passed the NBA concussion protocol and will be available to play on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.

    Advice: He was stuck on the final test of the protocol for a while, but he's now ready to return after a five-game absence. We'll be on the lookout for any restrictions, but Gordon can be deployed for Orlando's 3-game week. Mario Hezonja and Jonathan Isaac both lose a lot of streaming appeal, and Khem Birch will also lose some minutes with Gordon back because he was playing a lot of PF. Yesterday, 8:15 am
  • Rodney Hood (back) ruled out Monday
    Rodney Hood (back) will not play on Monday vs. the Bucks.

    Advice: He can't catch a break and it sounds like he tweaked his back on Thursday. Kyle Korver (foot) is questionable, but he'll be a great source of 3-pointers if he can go. Jordan Clarkson and J.R. Smith also get a bump with Hood out and we'll see more two-PG lineups with Jose Calderon picking up minutes. Yesterday, 7:12 am
