3 years agoKristaps Porzingis is set to make his return Wednesday as the Knicks travel to Orlando to take on the Magic. Porzingis has missed the past two games after spraining his ankle on Feb. 23. With Guillermo Hernangomez unlikely to play Wednesday, Porzingis should see extended minutes at center, making him a worthwhile DFS play despite it being his first game back from injury. Porizingis has battled injuries and cooled off statistically since his blazing hot start to the season but remains an elite fantasy center as long as he stays healthy. In just his second season in he NBA, Porzingis has a chance to become the first player in league history to average two blocks and two three-pointers made per game.--Zack Krukowski - RotoBallerSource: Ian Begley Twitter
3 years agoKenneth Faried is set to miss at least the next seven to 10 days, according to Nuggets head coach Michael Malone. Faried is not traveling with the team during their road trip and is instead staying back in Denver to receive treatment. Wilson Chandler has started the previous two games in Faried’s absence and should continue to receive heavy playing time and usage. Mason Plumlee and Darrell Arthur should also pick up additional playing time and are worth a look as deep league streamers or DFS options. Faried has been a mediocre fantasy asset all season and can be safely dropped in most leagues.--Zack Krukowski - RotoBallerSource: Nick Kosmider Twitter
3 years agoWesley Matthews has officially been ruled out for Wednesday’s game in Atlanta, according to a Mavericks’ press release. The cause for his absence is listed as a hip injury, and while Matthews did miss two games in late January due to a sprained right hip, there’s currently no information indicating the two injuries are related. With Matthews and J.J. Barea both out Wednesday, Harrison Barnes and Seth Curry will see all the minutes and offensive possessions they can handle. Both make great DFS plays.--Zack Krukowski - RotoBallerSource: Earl K. Sneed Twitter
3 years agoKevin Durant exited just a minute and a half into Tuesday’s game after suffering a knee injury and did not return as the Warriors went on to lose in Washington 112-108. Durant injured his knee after Marcin Gortat threw Zaza Pachulia, causing the seven-footer to crash into Durant’s left knee. The injury was ruled a hyperextension following the game, but Durant will undergo an MRI tomorrow. The collision certainly did not look good, but fantasy owners should wait for the MRI results before making any moves.--Zack Krukowski - RotoBallerSource: Mercury News
3 years agoCaris LeVert will start for the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday versus the Sacramento Kings. LeVert will be returning from a one-game absence due to illness and will continue to compete for his spot in the Nets’ crowded but subpar backcourt. With Jeremy Lin inching closer and closer to a full workload, LeVert, Sean Kilpatrick, Spencer Dinwiddie, Randy Foye and Isaiah Whitehead will all take a hit. Dinwiddie seems to have separated himself slightly from the pack, but he is a risky fantasy play, at best, with Lin back. The others should be left on the waiver wire at this time.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Basketball Monster
3 years agoGuillermo Hernangomez (ankle) is unlikely to play on Wednesday versus the Orlando Magic. Despite this hiccup, Hernangomez is a strong pickup with Joakim Noah out for the next month or so. Being the best option at center and being a young prospect bodes well for his continued involvement and productivity in the New York Knicks’ frontcourt rotation. In his last three games, Hernangomez has impressed, averaging 10 points on 57 percent shooting, nine rebounds, two assists and one block in 28 minutes per game. Once he recovers from this ankle sprain, there is no reason to believe Hernangomez won’t continue this fine form.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Fantasy Labs NBA
3 years agoVictor Oladipo, who has missed two games with back spasms, is a game-time decision tonight versus the Utah Jazz. Oladipo has been serviceable in his first season with the Oklahoma City Thunder, being the team's second-leading scorer with 16 points per game on 45 percent shooting, while adding four rebounds, three assists and a steal. While Oladipo has seen a slight decrease in his numbers largely due to Russell Westbrook’s historic season, his effective field goal percentage sits at 51.5 percent, the highest of his career. His turnovers are down to 1.6 per game, a significant improvement from his 2.7 career average in Orlando. If Oladipo cannot suit up tonight, look for Alex Abrines to continue to be a factor at shooting guard for the Thunder.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Basketball Monster
3 years agoAt the Los Angeles Lakers’ 13th-annual Lakers all-access event this past weekend, new president of basketball operations Earvin “Magic” Johnson went off-script with a clear message for the Lakers’ second-year point guard D’Angelo Russell – to lead these young Lakers. Johnson indicated that he wants Russell to not worry about being his teammates’ friend, instead to step up, despite his age, and hold guys accountable. So far, Russell has shown improvement in his second year, with averages of 14.6 points on 40 percent shooting, four rebounds, five assists and one steal in just under 27 minutes per game. These numbers, while promising, are far from Magic’s “team leader” ideal. With Lou Williams now in Houston, Russell will at least have the extended opportunity to ramp up his productivity and put his stamp on the Lakers, already having Magic’s seal of approval.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Serena Winters
3 years agoSan Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker has been listed as questionable for Wednesday’s tilt with the Indiana Pacers with a quad contusion. While Parker has not been the All-Star level point guard of his championship years, he is giving owners some solid production, with season averages of 10.7 points on 47 percent shooting, two rebounds and five assists. He is still the best point guard on the Spurs, as Patty Mills has not been stepping up to the extent many would have liked. Mills will be the man to watch, however, if Parker cannot play on Wednesday, as there will be plenty of minutes to go around at the point guard position.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Tom Orsborn
3 years agoRecently waived Brandon Jennings and the Washington Wizards are reportedly enthusiastic on the possibility of completing a deal if Jennings clears waivers on Wednesday. Jennings would be an immediate boost to one of the worst bench groups in the NBA, as he would be a shoe-in to replace Trey Burke as the team’s backup point guard. Jennings was averaging nine points, three rebounds, five assists and one steal in just under 25 minutes per game with the New York Knicks this season. That is good enough to be the Wizards’ second best bench player, behind only newly acquired Bojan Bogdanovic, who is going to play a vastly different role. Jennings would be an interesting add for owners in deep leagues looking to fill some holes at the guard position.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Adrian Wojnarowski
3 years agoMilwaukee Bucks forward Michael Beasley has been diagnosed with a hyperextended left knee after leaving Monday’s game with a non-contact injury. This is relatively good news, as it initially seemed like Beasley could be out for the season like fellow Bucks forward Jabari Parker. Beasley was stepping up well in Parker’s absence, with averages of 16 points on 68% shooting, 3.5 rebounds and nearly one steal in his last four games. He is slated to miss at least the next three games and will be re-evaluated for a potential return March 6 against the Philadelphia 76ers. Due to his somewhat low ceiling, Beasley is a cut candidate for those looking to make a playoff push, but he could be a useful end-of-the-bench pickup for managers in deeper leagues gearing up for the fantasy postseason.--Teodor Stanescu - RotoBallerSource: Gary Washburn
3 years agoForward Richaun Holmes dropped 15 points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal, three blocks and one three-pointer in 28 minutes on Monday. Holmes could be a useful player for the Sixers with Joel Embiid out, and Nerlens Noel in Dallas. The last three games, Holmes is averaging 11.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.3 blocks. He's worth a look in leagues if you need a big man. Holmes is still coming off the bench right now, but that could change quickly.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Yahoo Fantasy Sports
3 years agoThe Mavericks have officially ruled out guard Wesley Matthews for Wednesday's game versus the Atlanta Hawks. It's a big blow to the Mavs, as Matthews is averaging 15.0 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists this season. This injury will force Seth Curry and Harrison Barnes into bigger roles with more minutes. Quinn Cook will also see an opportunity to play some with Matthews out. Right now, Matthews is questionable for Friday's game, but Curry and Barnes remain excellent options right now.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Yahoo Fantasy Sports
3 years agoThe league has upheld DeMarcus Cousins' 18th technical foul, and he'll be suspended one game. That means Cousins will miss the game Wednesday night against the Detroit Pistons. From this point on, it will only take two technical fouls for Cousins to receive a one-game suspension. Dante Cunningham will start on Wednesday for Cousins, and Anthony Davis will shift over to the five spot. Cunningham could be an interesting option on Wednesday, but not a long-term fix.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Yahoo Fantasy Sports
3 years agoSeth Curry followed up Friday’s career-high 31 points with 29 more on Monday, as the Mavericks defeated the Miami Heat 96-89 in Dallas’ third game in four days. Curry was highly efficient Monday, shooting 10-of-17 from the field, 5-of-7 from three and 4-of-4 from the line. Curry has been a stud recently, currently ranked No. 39 over the past month among Yahoo standard nine-category leagues, and is up to No. 12 over the past two weeks. For as good as he’s been the past month, it’s even more encouraging that he’s enjoyed the two most productive games of his career in the past three outings. Curry should be owned and held in all leagues and is a foolish sell-high candidate due to his considerable upside.--Zack Krukowski - RotoBallerSource: Seth Curry Game Log
