Amare Stoudemire bruised his left knee in practice Wednesday and has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason opener against the Wizards.

Mike Woodson said, "If this was a regular season game he would play." Stoudemire is coming off a disastrous season and his surgically repaired knee might be an issue for the rest of his career. For now, consider Stoudemire day-to-day, and hope that this doesn't lead to a more serious injury. Kurt Thomas will start in his place.

Nerlens Noel is dealing with a sore quad and calf, and he is considered questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

The 76ers are arguably the most cautious team in the NBA, so it wouldn't be surprising if they err on the side of caution and rest Noel tonight. We should know more closer to tip-off, so owners will have to stay on alert for an update. If Noel does sit, Thomas Robinson will likely be the primary beneficiary and is worth a look in deeper leagues after he scored nine points with nine boards in just 13 minutes vs. the Wizards on Friday. Henry Sims and JaVale McGee could see a bump in minutes as well, though they aren't reliable options in almost any league.

After sitting out of Saturday's game vs. the Heat, Jeff Teague was seen getting treatment on his hamstring at practice on Sunday.

There is no word on how severe the injury is, but good news is that the Hawks don't play again until Tuesday vs. the Rockets, so there is plenty of time for him to recover. Dennis Schroder, who is coming off a 16-point, 10-assist performance vs. the Heat, will continue to be the primary beneficiary if Teague misses more time. We will continue to monitor Teague's status closely in the coming days and will pass along any additional updates.

Derrick Favors was simply fantastic against the Bucks on Saturday, scoring 16 points with 12 boards, three blocks and three steals in 37 minutes.

He shot 7-of-11 from the field and hit his only two free throw attempts on the night, but he did come dangerously close to fouling out in this one. He has now double-doubled in three out of his last four games, and it's obvious that Enes Kanter bolting town has done wonders for the value of both Favors and Rudy Gobert.

Rudy Gobert scored 12 points with 10 boards, two steals and thee blocks in 32 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

He is one of the most exciting players to watch in the NBA and his upside is through the roof. Gobert has seen his playing time steadily increase now that Enes Kanter is gone and he has averaged 9.8 points with 10.6 boards, 4.0 blocks and 1.0 steal in 31.0 minutes per game over his last five. Gobert's owners should be calling Kanter's agent and thanking him for demanding a trade out of Utah.

Nikola Pekovic's troublesome ankle flared up on him during Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies, and he is expected to be reevaluated on Monday.

Not good. Pekovic hasn't exactly been the most durable player in recent years, and it looks like the Wolves were playing with fire when they decided to play him in the second game of a back-to-back set. Pekovic lasted just two minutes in the second half on Saturday, and we would be surprised if he ended up playing against the Clippers on Monday. Gorgui Dieng stands to benefit the most if Pekovic misses time, while rookie Adreian Payne will see a bump in his minutes as well.
Mar 1 - 12:21 AM

Trey Burke replaced Dante Exum in the starting lineup at halftime and did not disappoint, scoring 23 points in a 82-75 win over the Bucks on Saturday.

Exum looks lost out there, and it's surprising that Burke hasn't yet reclaimed his starting spot. Burke has been on fire recently with averages of 18.2 points, 3.8 assists, 2.2 boards, 1.2 steals and 2.2 3-pointers in 28.8 minutes over his last five games, and it's obvious that the Jazz desperately need his scoring punch . Even if coach Quin Snyder opts to keep bringing Burke off the bench, he is still worth owning in most leagues and should continue to see his minutes trend up.
Mar 1 - 12:11 AM

Kawhi Leonard dominated on offense during a 101-74 win over the Suns on Saturday with 22 points, 10 rebounds, three steals and two blocks.

After a very rough start to the second half, Leonard is back. He was taking too many jumpers and he's gone back to being more aggressive. Kawhi had a nice line of 17 points, seven rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal on Friday, so his fantasy owners can finally start to feel great about him. We're expecting a big finish thanks to a friendly schedule.
Feb 28 - 11:44 PM

Gorgui Dieng played 39 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday with 13 points, nine rebounds and two steals.

With Nikola Pekovic only getting 12 minutes, Dieng picked up a lot of playing time. We still don't know for sure why, but Dieng has to be owned in all leagues because he is capable of being an early-round guy. If he was dropped, go get him.
Feb 28 - 11:05 PM

Nikola Pekovic played just 12 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday with one point, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block.

He played less than two minutes in the second half. The first thing to come to mind here is that his ankle isn't feeling great on the second half of a back-to-back set. His fantasy owners knew there was a lot of risk and hopefully the Wolves say it was just scheduled rest or because Marc Gasol destroyed him.
Feb 28 - 11:03 PM

Marc Gasol scored 27 points against the Wolves during a 101-97 win on Saturday with 11 rebounds, four assists and two blocks.

He made 11-of-14 from the field tonight and bounced back nicely from an 11-point game on Friday. Unlikely his teammate Zach Randolph, Gasol is cruising in the second half with averages of 17.4 points, 7.6 boards, 3.8 assists, 2.6 blocks and 0.4 steals. He's one of the best big men to own in fantasy.
Feb 28 - 10:57 PM

James Johnson scored 14 points against the Knicks during a 103-98 loss on Saturday with seven rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 33 minutes.

He's arguably the most valuable player on the Raptors for fantasy value right now. In his last five, Johnson averaged 13.2 points, 4.4 boards 1.2 assists, 2.2 blocks and 1.6 steals on 63.3 percent from the field. He should be owned in all leagues.
