FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Spencer Dinwiddie came off the bench to score 20 points (8-14 FGA, 3-3 FTA) with four rebounds, eight assists and one steal against the Wizards on Saturday.

Spencer Dinwiddie came off the bench in route to the best performance of career. The 21-year-old rookie had been averaging 2.7 points, 0.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 11 minutes in 19 games played. So tonight's performance was likely more of an apparition than anything else, but he definitely proved that he has the talent to hold his own when afforded the minutes. If he is able to string together another decent game or two, he may be worth a roster spot in deeper formats.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Andre Drummond scored 13 points (5-8 FGA, 3-10 FTA) with nine rebounds and one block during the Piston's 99-95 loss to the Wizards on Saturday.

A.D. regressed back to his mean tonight after registering 21 points and 15 rebounds Saturday verse the Knicks - keeping in mind last night's performance included two overtimes. The UConn alumn was one rebound shy of his fifth straight double-double, but 13 points, nine rebounds and a block is pretty standard fro Drummond. He certainly could use some work on his production from the charity stripe.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Greg Monroe posted a double-double during Saturday's 99-95 loss to the Wizards as he scored 21 points (8-15 FGA, 5-6 FTA) and grabbed 10 rebounds while adding in one steal and one block.

Monroe recorded his fourth straight double-double tonight against the Wizards, and has tallied 20+ points in his last two games. The 24-year-old big man has put together a string of several very efficient games, although Detroit has now lost three straight contests. Monroe is averaging 15 points and 10 boards on the season.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Kevin Garnett just picked up his second technical of the game and has been ejected.

Tough game for Garnett here as he let his emotions get the better of him and was tossed almost immediate. He had just six points with three rebounds, three steals and two blocks before heading to the showers. He'll be back for the T-Wolves next game on Monday. Analysis: Howard Bender

Bernard James will come off the bench on Saturday.

Despite Tyson Chandler being out again with a hip contusion, James will come off of the bench instead of starting. This means that Dirk will shift to center with Richard Jefferson starting at power forward. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Rajon Rondo will start Saturday against the Nets.

Rondo was suspended for his last game, but is back in the starting lineup on Saturday, with J.J. Barea heading back to the bench.  Analysis: Ben Diamond

Tyson Chandler (hip) will not play on Saturday.

Chandler was a game time decision with a hip contusion but he will not be able to play, missing his second straight game. Bernard James will likely take Chandler's spot in the starting lineup. Analysis: Ben Diamond

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Saturday off the bench.

Mayo has missed two games with a hamstring injury, but will come off the bench in Saturday's game. He should start to see some more playing time in the upcoming week if his hamstring is fine thanks to Jared Dudley's knee injury. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Jared Dudley's X-ray on his knee was negative, but he will sit out Saturday's game.

Dudley appears to have escaped serious injury, but he'll miss some time due to the injury. There isn't much of a timetable for return at this point, though he could be back by late-next week at best. Ersan Ilyasova could be thrust into fantasy relevance with Dudley out, so he is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues. Analysis: Ben Diamond

Chandler Parsons (ankle) said he hopes to play Monday against the Pelicans.

Parsons has missed three games due to an ankle injury, but he's making progress and has shed his walking boot. He'll do some more workouts with the ankle on Saturday, and depending on how the injury reacts, he could be back by mid-next week. Analysis: Ben Diamond
