Fantasy Player Updates & News  2016 MLB Draft Guide Is Here!

Kevin Love posted his 2nd triple-double of the season Friday with 22 points, 10 rebounds, 10 assists, and a steal to help lead the TWolves to 143-107 mauling of the Lakers.

Love accomplished this feat in just 29 minutes of action, which makes it even more amazing. Love also added to his league-leading double-double with his 57th of the season. ANALYST: Michael Pichan

Hassan Whiteside (ankle) warmed up and looks like he'll play Tuesday night.

He also participated in the earlier shootaround, making it sound likely that he will be available off the bench. The Heat will probably go with Amar'e Stoudemire as their starter at center, but Whiteside is being discussed as though he will see significant minutes against the Spurs. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Luol Deng says he's not feeling great but good enough to start.

He was not involved in the morning shootaround, but missing that part of practice allowed him to rest up enough to be able to play against the Spurs Tuesday night. He does not have the best match up, however, as he will be paired against Kawhi Leonard and that may wear him out as the game progresses. Analysis: Ivar G. Anderson

Jordan Mickey said he'll skip the D-League All-Star Game in Toronto and stay back in Boston and rehab his sprained ankle.

It's too bad that Jordan Mickey sprained his ankle as he has been fantastic in the D-League. This would have been an opportunity for him to showcase his skills. The Celtics' head coach Brad Stevens said he really likes Mickey and knows he has a lot of potential. So far this season, Mickey is averaging 17.1 points, 10.4 rebounds and 4.6 blocks per game in the D-League. He is someone to watch in Dynasty formats.  Analysis: Mike Cahill

Rockets have recalled Donatas Motiejunas from the RGV Vipers of the D-League.

Donatas Motiejunas has had some playing time this season, but nothing to go crazy over. This is strictly a depth move since Clint Capela is still getting over his hip injury. Don't worry about missing out on Motiejunas, as he will be of no fantasy relevance in the near future. Analysis: Mike Cahill

Rockets have recalled K.J. McDaniels from the RGV Vipers of the D-League.

This is no surprise as these are just about the only headlines K.J. McDaniels appears in. McDaniels doesn't appear to have a shot at meaningful minutes this season and should be of no concern to fantasy players. If he has a shot, you would know about it by now.  Analysis: Mike Cahill

David West will start for injured Tim Duncan on Tuesday.

In his last start David West had 10 minutes of play. Greg Popvich has been going towards more of a committee to fill-in for the hurting Tim Duncan. This has made the front-court a frustrating spot on the Spurs, unless it's LaMarcus Aldridge. There should be no reason for anyone to play David West, unless they lost a bet. Analysis: Mike Cahill

Michael Carter-Williams will come off the bench on Tuesday.

There has been talks going around that Michael Carter-Williams could get traded. Carter-Williams is a former Rookie of the Year winner, but has been inconsistent with the Bucks. The Bucks could be looking to build their roster differently and get what they can for the 24 year-old. Jerryd Bayless is the guy to watch and potentially pick up, especially if Carter-Williams gets traded. Analysis: Mike Cahill

Greg Monroe will come off the bench on Tuesday.

It appears that Greg Monroe will still get big minutes even though he is not starting. This could be a move by Kidd to get a spark out of the team. Monroe has been one of the more productive players for the Bucks and is averaging over 30 minutes per-game with 16.5 points and 9.6 rebounds. If you don't mind him not starting, he should still be worth a play. Analysis: Mike Cahill

Coach Jason Kidd says Miles Plumlee is getting the start Tuesday night.

Since Miles Plumlee is getting the start, he could be a great play. He hasn't done a whole lot on the year, but his minutes have been pretty limited. It would be a risky play, but a cheap one that pays off. If he can take this opportunity and flourish, Plumlee could become fantasy relevant.  Analysis: Mike Cahill

Coach Jason Kidd says O.J. Mayo is getting the start Tuesday night.

Even though coach Kidd said that O.J. Mayo will get the start, we can't forget that he missed 11 games in-a-row. There could be some rust to shake off, but if you have the stones to do it, he could be a very productive player. It would be a better idea to stay away from him in DFS leagues, but worth a grab if you can in season-long leagues. Analysis: Mike Cahill

Nikola Pekovic (ankle) is listed doubtful for Wednesday's game.

The big man has been dealing with injuries all year and has only seen action in 12 games this season. He is not someone to be owned and he will most likely be out until after the All-Star break. Even when he returns, he will be virtually non-existent. Analysis: Mike Cahill

Kris Humphries (knee) will be available to play Tuesday.

With Nene on a minutes limit, expect Kris Humphries to be the most beneficiary for playing time over DeJuan Blair and Drew Gooden. Though that may be the case, he is not worth a play on this day. Brooklyn has a bottom 10 offense and these three are not helping that cause. Analysis: Mike Cahill

Coach Brad Stevens confirms that Jae Crowder (ankle) is good to go Tuesday night.

If he's playing and you own him, you have to continue to start him. Jae Crowder said it was a mind-over-matter type thing and he will continue to play through the pain. He is still getting over 32 minutes per-game and making the most of it. The only time to stay away from him is DFS as it's not worth the risk of him aggravating the injury and leaving the game. Analysis: Mike Cahill

Owen Daniels admitted he will think about retirement this offseason.

Now that he has his Super Bowl ring, it may be easier for Owen Daniels to call it a career. Daniels has had a decent career, but nothing Tony Gonzalez-like. He is due $3.5 million next season and he will turn 34 years-old. Odds are, even if he doesn't retire, the Broncos may want to cut him. Analysis: Mike Cahill
