FANTASY PLAYER UPDATES & NEWS

Gorgui Dieng came off the bench and scored 13 points (4-6 FGA, 5-6 FTA) with nine rebounds and two steals during the Timberwolves' 101-97 loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday.

Gorgui Dieng put together a solid performance, collecting 13 points (on 66% shooting) and nine rebounds in 38 minutes. The increased workload came as a result of Nikola Pekovic being pulled early with ankle soreness. Dieng is averaging 9.4 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists on the season, but you can expect to see a bump in those numbers if Pekovic is sidelined for any length of time. Averaging nearly a double-double on a nightly basis, Dieng is a solid fantasy option as is.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Gary Neal came off the bench to score 16 points (4-8 FGA, 5-5 FTA) with two assists against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

The 16 points off the bench is nice, but failing to record a single rebound, block or steal is not so nice. Gary Neal can be avoided in all formats.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Ricky Rubio scored 13 points (3-12 FGA, 6-8 FTA) with seven rebounds, 10 assists and four steals during the Timberwolves' loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday

Ricky Rubio collected a double-double for the second straight night, and has done so in three of his last five games. The shooting percentage is never going to be there for Rubio, but the fact that he is able to contribute so consistently in many other departments makes him a top-tier fantasy option at the guard spot - so long as he is able to stay on the court.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Andrew Wiggins scored 25 points (10-22 FGA, 5-6 FTA) with four rebounds, two assists and one steal during the Timberwolves' 101-97 loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday.

Rookie Andrew Wiggins has been taking care of business of late, averaging 21.6 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 steals in his last five games. Wiggins has done quite well for fantasy owners, and should be in the starting lineup on a nightly basis.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Mike Conley scored 17 points (5-13 FGA, 5-5 FTA) with two rebounds, four assists and two steals during the Grizzlies' win over the Timberwolves on Saturday.

Mike Conley followed up a four-point performance with a 17 point game in Saturday's victory over the Timberwolves. Conley should be started in all formats, as he is averaging 16.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 1.2 steals this season.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Sources say Amar'e Stoudemire wouldn't mind returning to Phoenix after he becomes a free agent in July.

Stoudemire spent his first eight years in the league and will always have a soft spot for the first city for which he played. Whether the Suns will take him back is the real question. Analysis: Howard Bender

Marc Gasol scored 27 points (11-14 FGA, 5-9 FTA) with 11 rebounds, four assists and two blocks during the Grizzlies' 101-97 win over the Timberwolves on Saturday.

Marc Gasol bounced back nicely after recording 11 points (on 41.7% shooting) and eight rebounds in Friday's loss to the Clippers. Gasol will attempt to carry-over his 78.6% shooting night onto the Jazz, Tuesday night.  Analysis: Keith Tro

Rajon Rondo is still open to the idea re-signing with the Mavericks.

Rondo was asked by the media whether or not his thoughts had changed about re-signing with the Mavs after the season. The veteran point guard had a public spat with Head Coach Rick Carlisle last week, allegedly over Rondo's control over play calling. It's tough to know whether or not Rondo is posturing or if the issue between the coach and player is resolved.  Analysis: Spencer Silva
