3 years agoNets guard Jeremy Lin has been ruled out of Tuesday's contest against the Detroit Pistons due to an ankle injury. Lin has downplayed the injury, but the Nets have no incentive to rush him back onto the court. He's listed as day-to-day, but we could be looking at a multiple games absence for Lin. Spencer Dinwiddie will draw the start in place of Lin, and guys like Archie Goodwin and Isaiah Whitehead will see some minutes as well. Dinwiddie is a decent option tonight versus the Pistons.--Andy Webb - RotoBallerSource: Tom Lorenzo
3 years agoAfter missing the past two games for the Washington Wizards with illness, forward Markieff Morris will make his return tonight as the Wiz face off with the Boston Celtics. The 27-year-old is averaging 14 points and six rebounds per game for a Wizards team that appears to be one of the very best in the Eastern Conference. In the past two games, Jason Smith has seen starts, but with Morris’ return, look for a significant drop-off in minutes.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: CSN Mid-Atlantic
3 years agoThe Houston Rockets have opted to sign forward Troy Williams for the rest of the season following his acquisition from the Memphis Grizzlies. The 22-year-old hasn’t seen a minute of action in his five games with the Rockets and hasn’t seen a minute of NBA action since back in December, when he was a member of the Grizzlies. Don’t expect Williams to see any major minutes on an already-stacked Houston Rockets squad. Therefore, he shouldn’t garner much traction in the waiver wire market.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: Houston Chronicle
3 years agoMVP candidate and fourth quarter master Isaiah Thomas will return for the Boston Celtics tonight just in time for a pivotal showdown with the Washington Wizards. The 28-year-old missed Boston’s last two games with a knee injury, with the Celtics splitting the games. For the season, Thomas is averaging 29 points and six assists per game, both career highs. With his return, Marcus Smart will be relegated back to the bench. Expect Thomas to contribute at the level he has been all season.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: Boston Celtics Twitter
3 years agoFor the first time in over two months, the Orlando Magic will have veteran guard Jodie Meeks at their disposal tonight. The 29-year-old had previously been sidelined with a right thumb injury and subsequent surgery, but will be available off the bench tonight. Meeks was significantly making a bigger impact for the Magic at the time of his injury, having dropped a season-high 23 points earlier in January prior to his injury. Tonight, don’t expect much from Meeks, who’ll probably be given a couple of minutes to get back in playing shape.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: Orlando Sentinel
3 years agoTroubled big man Jahlil Okafor will sit out tonight’s Sixers game against the Orlando Magic. The second year center out of Duke University was suffering from knee soreness during Sunday’s loss to the Celtics and he wound up exiting the game. So far this season, Okafor is averaging 12 points and four rebounds per game. The 21-year-old has already dealt with a litany of injuries in his short career, and his durability going forward is seriously in question. For tonight, look for Richaun Holmes to get significant playing time at center.--Ricky Delgado - RotoBallerSource: Bleacher Report
3 years agoPaul Millsap is dealing with tightness in his left knee, so he isn’t going to be able to play in the Hawks next two games. Without him, Dwight Howard is going to be asked to pick up some of the scoring slack. That means he should also see more touches in the low block, or out of the pick and roll. So while Millsap continues to recover, Dwight Howard is a nice replacement option.--Aaron S - RotoBallerSource: Chris Vivlamore
3 years agoDion Waiters fractured his left ankle, so he’s possibly out for the entire regular season. Without him now, the majority of the SG minutes are going to go to Tyler Johnson. That means he’s worth adding, because without Waiters he’s going to be one of the few Heat guards that create for himself.--Aaron S - RotoBallerSource: Ira Winderman
3 years agoReggie Jackson is the definition of a volume-scorer. One night he seems play great, however the next night, things seem to change instantly. After going off for 20 points and six assists against Toronto, Jackson poured in just 14 points (5-15 FG) and four assists against Phoenix the next game. That pretty much sums up how his whole season has gone, so if he’s still on your teams he needs to be dropped.--Aaron S - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 years agoKent Bazemore will miss the next two games, and maybe even more time. He’s dealing with a bone bruise in his right knee. So without him, Tim Hardaway Jr. becomes an even better fantasy option. The Hawks don’t have a ton of depth at the two or three spot. That means without Bazemore, Hardaway is going to get a lot of minutes. An that’s going to be music to fantasy owners ears, because without Bazemore, the majority of the perimeter scoring is going to be on him.--Aaron S - RotoBallerSource: Chris Vivlamore
3 years agoDario Saric has been the 76ers best player every since Joel Embiid was put on the sidelines for the rest of the season. And he hasn’t played any better than last game. Against Boston, Saric scored 23 points (10/20 FG), grabbed six rebounds, dished out four assists and got his hands on two steals. It almost seems like he plays better every game, so because of that, he should be in you starting line-ups on a nightly basis.--Aaron S - RotoBallerSource: NBA
3 years agoAlan Williams is a double-double machine. In his 13 games played Post All-Star break, Williams has scored in double figures in every game, and he’s also had a double-double every night expect for just four games. That’s incredible, especially when taking into consideration he’s playing just 25 minutes per game. So if he’s still available on your waiver wire he needs to be picked up ASAP.--Aaron S - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 years agoJordan Crawford has been a consistent presence every since the Pelican signed him. Besides one bad game (he wasn’t needed because it was a blowout), Crawford has actually played great with his new team. But no better than what how he played last outing. Against Minnesota, he poured in 22 points and two rebounds in only 21 minutes of action. So with that said, he is a nice DFS option, but just watch who they’re playing to see if the matchups favourable to him.--Aaron S - RotoBallerSource: ESPN
3 years agoKristaps Porzingis has already been ruled out for Monday's game against the Clippers with a left thigh contusion. He sat out of Thursday's game and could be looking at more missed time as the Knicks' playoff hopes are long gone. With KP sitting Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn will see increased minutes. Hernangomez has already been putting up serviceable numbers and should be owned, while O'Quinn is more hot-and-cold and should be streamed based on matchups.--Joel Hiller - RotoballerSource: FantasyLabsNBA
3 years agoBoogie Cousins looks likely to play on Sunday as the Pelicans take on the Timberwolves. He left Wednesday's game with left knee soreness and sat out on Friday, but an MRI on his knee came back negative. He will most likely suit up on Sunday and should have his hands full next to Anthony Davis as they try to contain Karl Anthony Towns. With Boogie back, Solomon Hill will lose value and isn't worth streaming.--Joel Hiller - RotoballerSource: Basketball Monster
