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

Nick Swisher has returned to the Indians lineup Sunday.

Swisher had missed the last couple of days due to some swelling and general soreness in his knee.The time off, obviously, did some good and it would appear to be safe to get him back into your lineups.ANALYST: Howard Bender

Whiteside went to the bench with an ankle injury.

Whiteside injured the ankle or foot on a rebound and came up limping a bit, so with him just recently coming back from a hip injury it's likely a precautionary move to take him out. He was effective in Sunday's loss however with a double-double off the bench behind starter A'mare Stoudemire. More updates to follow once the extent of the injury and timeframe are better known. Analysis: Matt Selz

Nikola Vucevic finished with 22 points (11-19 FG), nine rebounds and two steals in 35 minutes during Sunday’s 96-94 win over the Hawks.

After his team blew a 13-point lead in the fourth quarter, Vucevic played the part of the hero in Sunday afternoons victory. With the game tied up at 94, the 25-year-old seven-footer drained a fallaway jumper at the buzzer to give Orlando the win. Vucevic has delivered yet another strong week for fantasy owners, averaging 17.8 points, 7.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists across four games. Analysis: Nate Miller

Aaron Gordon put up 11 points (3-11 FG, 5-6 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists, four blocks and two steals in 34 minutes during Sunday’s 96-94 win over the Hawks.

Gordon continues to struggle with his shooting of late, but unlike his last two efforts, he put together a tremendous all-around stat line Sunday afternoon. It is probably best to just chalk up his lackluster performances this past Wednesday and Friday to being flukes, as the young forward now has three double-doubles in the last five games and is providing standard-league production most days. Analysis: Nate Miller

Elfrid Payton scored 12 points (5-10 FG, 2-4 3pt) to go with 12 assists and four rebounds in 33 minutes during Sunday’s 96-94 win over the Hawks.

Payton had been mired in a slump over the past couple of weeks, but definitely showed signs of coming out of it Sunday afternoon. The young point guard reached double-digit points for the first time in four games while setting a new season high in assists in the nail-biting win over the Hawks. Analysis: Nate Miller

Evan Fournier scored 21 points (7-14 FG, 4-4 FT, 3-5 3pt) to go with five rebounds and two steals in 43 minutes during Sunday’s 96-94 win over the Hawks.

Fournier put up a couple duds to begin this week, but bounced back with strong efforts both Friday and Sunday. The sweet-shooting swingman has combined for 37 points and 11 rebounds while shooting 48.1 percent from the field and 5-of-10 from beyond the arc over the last two games. Fournier remained a nice source of threes in standard fantasy formats. Analysis: Nate Miller

Victor Oladipo put up 19 points (9-13 FG, 1-3 3pt), five rebounds and three assists in 44 minutes during Sunday’s 96-94 win over the Hawks.

Finishing off a tremendous week with another solid performance Sunday afternoon, Oladipo is certainly getting the job done for the Magic and fantasy owners alike. The 23-year-old guard has scored at least 18 points in each of the past four games, averaging 23.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 2.0 steals during that span. Analysis: Nate Miller

Kent Bazemore scored 23 points (8-17 FG, 4-4 FT, 3-5 3pt) to go with eight rebounds and two steals in 33 minutes during Sunday’s 96-94 loss to the Magic.

Bazemore has certainly been trending in the right direction when it comes to scoring of late, as he has scored 4, 12, 15 and 23 points respectively over his last four games. The great thing about the 26-year-old swingman in what has moreless been a breakout season is his ability to put up stats almost across the board. In those same four games, Bazemore has contributed 21 rebounds, 14 assists, seven treys and six steals. He remains a solid standard-league option. Analysis: Nate Miller

Jeff Teague scored 24 points (10-17 FG, 1-1 FT, 3-5 3pt) and dished out five assists in 35 minutes during Sunday’s 96-94 loss to the Magic.

Teague turned in a great overall effort for the Hawks on Sunday afternoon. However, he ultimately ended up looking like the goat, as the veteran point guard missed a pair of late-game shots that could well have changed the outcome. Teague continues to be anything but consistent this season, but he provides more good games than bad, especially of late. Over the past eight games, he has averaged 18.1 points, 5.4 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.8 steals. Analysis: Nate Miller
