Latest Headlines

A Rotoworld source indicates that Phil Jackson met with the Lakers at Staples Center last week.

Mike Brown has been relieved of his duties and Jackson's keynote speaker address at a Schwab conference has been canceled in Chicago for next week, pointing a lot of fingers at Jackson becoming the next coach of the Lakers. Jackson would have to come out of retirement and may ask for an arrangement limiting his travel, but the fact he reportedly met with the team last week is intriguing. Our guess is Phil Jackson will be the next coach of the Lakers. Stay tuned.

Jordan Hill left Sunday's game against the Knicks with a right quad strain and he will not return.

Hill will finish Sunday's game with just two points (1-of-3 shooting) and five rebounds, and he will be re-evaluated on Monday. We'll be sure to pass along updates as they become available, but Carlos Boozer, Ed Davis, and Ryan Kelly will all have some increased opportunity for as long as Hill is out.

Anthony Davis (groin) is being listed as probable for Monday's game against Atlanta.

Davis' groin strain was never thought to be serious, and if he does indeed play on Monday, the injury will have only sidelined him for one game. His return to action will send Ryan Anderson to the bench, and Alexis Ajinca will go back to being a negligible option in most leagues. Stay tuned.
Feb 1 - 2:33 PM

Rajon Rondo (face) has already been ruled out for Monday's game against Minnesota.

The team's doctors are still evaluating Rondo, so we should have more details soon. Devin Harris will likely draw the start following this news and would be worth a look in deeper leagues, while Monta Ellis will have to carry even more responsibility on offense for the Mavericks.
Feb 1 - 12:54 PM

Joe Johnson missed practice on Sunday for personal reasons.

There's no word about a possible injury, but we should have more details on his absence shortly. There's nothing to suggest that Johnson wouldn't be available to play against the Clippers on Monday, but his owners will have to keep their head on a swivel for an update. Alan Anderson and Bojan Bogdanovic figure to benefit the most if Johnson misses any action.
Feb 1 - 12:44 PM

Deron Williams (ribs) practiced in full for the first time since his injury on Sunday and is officially listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Clippers.

D-Will is likely going to be eased into action upon his return, but Jarrett Jack will likely remain in the starting lineup for the foreseeable future. However, D-Will is more than capable of putting up good numbers when he's active, so make sure he's not floating around the waiver wire in your league. We should know more about Williams' status following Monday's shootaround so stay tuned.
Feb 1 - 12:43 PM

Nick Young (ankle) will be active on Sunday against the Knicks, but coach Byron Scott said that he wouldn't play.

Coach Scott said that he wanted Young to go through a practice before he returns to action, so there's no cause for concern here. Consider Young day-to-day for now, while Wayne Ellington will continue to see increased production in Young's absence.
Feb 1 - 12:36 PM

Carmelo Anthony will play vs. the Lakers on Sunday as expected.

He wasn't listed on the injury report, but his owners will have to verify his status prior to every game due to all the concerns over his knee. Anthony will be a stud almost every time he's active, so feel free to pencil him into all lineups.
Feb 1 - 12:31 PM

Amare Stoudemire (ankle) will not play on Sunday against the Lakers.

There's a chance that he could return against the Celtics on Tuesday, but his role will be too limited to rely upon outside of deeper leagues. Lou Amundson and Jason Smith will continue to fill the void for the Knicks.
Feb 1 - 12:20 PM

Ricky Rubio (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Mavericks.

He has missed the last 43 games due to his ankle, so if he does return his owners should expect some rust. Even though Rubio will be on a minutes limit until after the All-Star break, he shouldn't be floating around any waiver wires. Mo Williams (hip) and Zach LaVine (ankle) are also questionable for Monday, meaning Lorenzo Brown could remain in the rotation. Check back after shootaround on Monday for the latest updates.
Feb 1 - 12:09 PM

Luol Deng (calf) will not play in Sunday's game against the Celtics.

This will be his third straight game on the sidelines, and coach Erik Spoelstra said that while Deng is getting better, he won't be allowed to play until he is 100 percent. Danny Granger and James Ennis will see some increased run with this news, but they are both too unreliable to use outside of deeper leagues.
Feb 1 - 11:36 AM

Tyler Zeller will draw the start over Jared Sullinger for Sunday's game vs. the Heat.

Jared Sullinger was reportedly late to shootaround due to traffic problems, so this isn't a permanent switch by any means. Sullinger should still see plenty of action considering that Kelly Olynyk is sidelined with an ankle issue, so owners can deploy him like they normally would. Zeller is prone to foul trouble, and faces a tough matchup against Hassan Whiteside, so owners in daily leagues should take that into consideration.
