Player Notes

  • Reggie Bullock (foot) ruled out Tuesday
    Reggie Bullock (right foot sprain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. Miami.

    Advice: Only limited fantasy impact here, as Bullock has been on the fringes of the Detroit rotation for most of the season. Stanley Johnson may see a few more minutes off the bench. Today, 4:30 pm
  • Tobias Harris back to the bench on Tuesday
    Jon Leuer will replace Tobias Harris in the Pistons starting lineup Tuesday vs. Miami.

    Advice: This won't have much impact on Harris' fantasy value. In fact, Tobias is posting better numbers off the bench. In 47 games as a starter this season, he is averaging 15.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in 33.1 minutes. In 27 games as a reserve, Harris is averaging 16.6 points and 5.4 boards in 28.9 minutes. Today, 4:27 pm
  • Taurean Prince starting again on Tuesday
    Taurean Prince will draw another start on Tuesday vs. the Suns.

    Advice: Thabo Sefolosha (groin), Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) are all out, and Bazemore is the only player expected back on Wednesday. That means Prince is looking at a significant workload tonight and could have some nice short-term value this whole week. In his previous start, Prince went off for 17 points, six boards, one assist, three steals, one block and two triples in 38 minutes. Today, 4:19 pm
  • Derrick Jones Jr. starting for Devin Booker
    Derrick Jones Jr. will start in place of Devin Booker (ankle) on Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

    Advice: Booker has an "ankle" injury, but there have been some reports that the tanking Suns are just resting him. Jones is more of a defender who rarely scores outside of the paint, so there's not much fantasy upside here. In five starts this season, Jones has averaged 4.0 points and 4.6 rebounds. Today, 4:09 pm
  • Dubs will provide update on Durant Wednesday
    The Warriors will provide an update on Kevin Durant (knee) on Wednesday.

    Advice: Durant has looked great while going through his pregame routines as of late, and he'll be re-evaluated on Wednesday, after which, the Warriors will offer an update. Durant was initially targeting a mid-April return, but we'll have to wait for tomorrow's update to see if anything has changed on that speculative timetable. He might be worth a speculative add in deep leagues with things trending in a positive direction, but know that he'll be on a strict minutes limit upon his return. Today, 3:40 pm
  • Khris Middleton (illness) will play Tuesday
    Coach Jason Kidd said that Khris Middleton (stomach virus) will play Tuesday vs. Charlotte.

    Advice: Middleton missed shootaround this morning, but fortunately is feeling better. Fantasy owners can breathe a sign of relief and feel comfortable inserting him into their starting lineup. Middleton is averaging 16.9 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 1.8 treys over the Bucks last 15 games. Today, 2:41 pm
  • Anthony, Rose not listed as starters vs. MIA
    Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose are not being listed as starters in the game notes for Wednesday's matchup with Miami.

    Advice: First and foremost, the game notes are notoriously unreliable, so things certainly could change as we get closer to Wednesday's tip, but it does seem like New York is at least contemplating dishing out rest days to their veterans. The game notes list Ron Baker, Courtney Lee, Mindaugas Kuzminskas, Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez as the starters for Wednesday night, and owners can expect to get a more official update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Today, 1:55 pm
  • Brandon Ingram (knee) out Tuesday vs. Wizards
    Brandon Ingram (right knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

    Advice: With Ingram on the sidelines, Corey Brewer could be looking at another start, and guys like David Nwaba and Larry Nance should see some increased minutes with the second unit. Ingram will be traveling with the team to Minnesota for Thursday's matchup with the Wolves, so for now, we'll be considering him questionable for that one. Today, 11:09 am
  • Jonas Jerebko (knee) questionable Wednesday
    Jonas Jerebko was unable to finish practice on Tuesday due to a sore knee.

    Advice: At this point, we have to consider Jerebko questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Bucks. The fantasy impact is minimal, as he is averaging just 11.1 minutes per game over his last four appearances. Kelly Olynyk and Tyler Zeller may see a few extra minutes if Jerebko does not play on Wednesday. Today, 10:50 am
  • Jeff Green (back) listed as out for Wednesday
    Jeff Green (back spasms) is listed as "out" for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder.

    Advice: This would be the fourth straight game Green has missed. Mario Hezonja has seen playing time increase with Green sidelined, but has been ineffective. Hezonja is averaging 5.7 points (on just 21.4 percent shooting) and 4.3 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game over Orlando's last three contests. Today, 9:59 am

  • Korver (foot) says there has been 'progress'
    Kyle Korver (foot) will miss the Cavs next three games, but he says he's seen "progress" and is hopeful he won't miss the remainder of the regular season.

    Advice: "I’m hopeful just a few days here to completely shut down and not trying to test it out and see how it feels," said Korver. "It’s just not quite where it needs to be for me to play like I’m really being me. Everyone keeps saying we’re going to play basketball for a long time. Get it right for the playoffs." Korver said the training staff is trying out new pads in his shoes to alleviate the soreness. J.R Smith will continue to start and log heavy minutes. Today, 9:22 am
  • Gerald Henderson (hip) ruled out Tuesday
    Gerald Henderson (hip) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

    Advice: This is not surprising, as the Sixers also play on Wednesday and they have previously kept Henderson out of back-to-back sets due to his nagging hip injury. Nik Stauskas, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and Justin Anderson could see a slight uptick in minutes. Today, 8:27 am
  • Andre Iguodala finishing the season strongly
    Andre Iguodala has stepped up since Kevin Durant (knee) went down and has played his best basketball of the season this month.

    Advice: The 33-year old Iguodala credits yoga, cryotherapy and salt floating with keeping him fresh this late in the season. "He’s been fantastic," coach Steve Kerr said. "He looks incredibly athletic, bouncy and fresh." Over his last nine games, Iggy is averaging 12.4 points (on 63.1 percent shooting), 3.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.4 steals. The only real concern going forward is Kerr intermittently resting him. Today, 7:55 am
  • Kent Bazemore (knee) 'trending upward'
    Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play Tuesday but is planning to return for Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers.

    Advice: Tuesday's game vs. Phoenix will be the fifth straight contest Bazemore has missed after injuring his knee during the Hawks loss to the Blazers on March 18. Bazemore said the rehab has been successful and he is "starting to feel good" and can now do "just about everything." The red-hot Tim Hardaway Jr. will draw another start and play heavy minutes on Tuesday. Today, 6:36 am
  • LeBron James (neck) will play on Thursday
    LeBron James (neck) said he will be ready to play on Thursday vs. the Bulls.

    Advice: LeBron took an elbow to the spine near the base of his neck in the third quarter of Monday night's loss to the Spurs. He did not return to the game. However, James downplayed the injury afterward, and he will have two full days to rest before the Cavs next contest. It's safe to assume the Cavs would prefer to limit LeBron's minutes and potentially rest him to keep him fresh for the playoffs, but with Boston overtaking Cleveland for the top seed in the East, they may not have that luxury. Today, 6:06 am
  • Danny Green returned to action on Monday March 27. Today, 12:46 am
  • Rodney Hood scores 20 points in win
    Rodney Hood snapped out of his funk with 20 points on 7-of-16 shooting vs. the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: Hood scored a combined 23 points in his previous three games, but stepped up with Gordon Hayward (quad) and Alec Burks (personal) out -- Hood gets an 8.2 usage rate bump with Hayward off the court. He added six rebounds with three assists and four triples, but he's had a lot of trouble staying healthy this season and his FG percentage has been all over the place. If Hayward sits on Wednesday, Hood could be poised for another solid night. Yesterday, 10:38 pm
  • Joe Johnson scores 14 w/ six assists
    Joe Johnson racked up 14 points on 5-of-10 shooting with seven rebounds, six assists and two triples in 31 minutes vs. the Pelicans on Monday.

    Advice: Gordon Hayward (quad) sat this one out, so there's not much to see here. Unless Hayward misses more time, Johnson is just a low-end option in deeper leagues. Joe Ingles, who scored 19 points with five triples, is the better add if Hayward sits on Wednesday. Yesterday, 10:31 pm
  • Joe Ingles scores 19 points, hits five treys
    Joe Ingles started in place of Gordon Hayward (quad) in Monday's 108-100 win over the Pelicans and scored 19 points in 35 minutes.

    Advice: The Jazz were running a lot of offense through him down the stretch and he delivered, scoring 10 of his 19 points in the fourth quarter -- he even hit a step-back jumper over Anthony Davis in the final two minutes. He finished 7-of-13 from the field and hit all five of his 3-pointers, adding four rebounds, four assists and one steal. He won't be this good, but give him a look if we learn that Hayward will miss more time. Ingles averaged 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.0 triples in 20 previous starts this season. Yesterday, 10:12 pm
  • Kawhi Leonard posts 25-6-6 in rout of Cavs
    Kawhi Leonard finished with 25 points, six rebounds, six assists, three steals and a blocked shot in 30 minutes on Monday against the Cavaliers.

    Advice: About the only thing fantasy owners can complain about is the fact Leonard missed all seven of his 3-pointer attempts. He could have blown through the lane for an easy deuce most of the evening, but elected to go outside rather frequently. He still was 11-of-21 overall from the floor, so fantasy owners cannot complain too loudly. Yesterday, 9:05 pm
