• Fresh off last years rebounding crown, Andre Drummond believes he will win it again according to Keith Langlois of NBA.com.

    “I’m going to win the rebounding crown again. I’m going for it – no doubt about it” said Drummond in a recent interview. Drummond led the league with 14.8 rebounds per game last season while also adding 16.2 points per game. He is someone to watch out for on draft day as production like this at the center position is hard to come by. 

Fantasy News

  • Derrick Rose
    PG, Detroit Pistons

    Derrick Rose had another solid outing and posted 27 points in Saturday's 111-121 overtime loss to the Nets, chipping in four rebounds, six assists and two steals.

    Rose continues to have a resurgent year and in the month of January is averaging almost 23 points a game. Even with this solid offensive output he is only returning seventh-round value as he provides very little else besides points and assists, though he does provide a positive boost in FG percentage compared to other point guards.

  • Sekou Doumbouya
    PF, Detroit Pistons

    Sekou Doumbouya was horrible in Saturday's loss to the Nets, logging zero points, on 0-of-5 shooting and registering just two rebounds.

    Ouch. After a 24 point explosion in mid-January, Doumbouya was a hot pick-up off the waiver-wire. As a result the Pistons increased his minutes, while also starting 12 of the past 13 games. After tonight's game, he should not be rostered in any but the deepest of leagues.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Detroit Pistons

    Andre Drummond double-doubled in Saturday's overtime loss to the Nets, logging 20 points, 21 rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

    Drummond shot below average in this one going 8-of-20 from the field as he had to contend against the Nets' Jarrett Allen. The less than stellar shooting also transferred to the charity stripe, where he went 4-of-8. Nevertheless, he still finished with a monster day on the glass, and the two blocks, making this a good game for roto and points league players.

  • Bruce Brown
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Bruce Brown scored 17 points in Saturday's loss to the Nets, chipping in five rebounds, five assists and three three-pointers.

    Brown got the start with teammate Reggie Jackson resting. He was pretty good from the field, converting 7-of-12, though he failed to get to the charity stripe. He filled out the rest of the box score with five boards and five assists without any countable defensive stats. Brown is an end of bench player would swipes a respectable amount of steals for teams in need.

  • Svi Mykhailiuk
    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Sviatoslav Mykahiliuk scored 19 points in Saturday's overtime loss to the Nets, chipping in five rebounds, three assists, a steal and three three-pointers.

    Mykahiliuk drew another start and was productive in tonight's game scoring 19 points. He has scored in double figures in 12 of his past 13 games in the month of January, averaging almost 14 points a game. Unsurprisingly he provides a great source of three-pointers but is also averaging nearly a steal a game. As long as he is starting he is worthy of a roster spot in most standard leagues.

  • Malcolm Brogdon
    PG, Indiana Pacers

    Malcolm Brogdon (concussion) will not play on Sunday vs. the Blazers.

    Brogdon will miss his second game after getting hit in the head on Wednesday. Sunday will be Brogdon's 17th game missed with injury this season. He's a top-75 player in per game value and hopefully he can get back on the court soon.

  • Zhaire Smith
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Zhaire Smith sprained his left ankle and finished Saturday's game with one assist in three minutes.

    It was his first minutes with the Sixers this season so it was disappointing to see him leave early with an injury. Smith won't have an impact in standard leagues this season.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Allen Crabbe hurt his left knee during Saturday's game and will not return.

    Crabbe finished the game with one rebound and one turnover in four minutes. Crabbe is unlikely to have standard-league value at any point this season. If he misses time his minutes should go to Josh Okogie who had a 17-point performance in 32 minutes on Friday.

  • Goga Bitadze
    C, Indiana Pacers

    Goga Bitadze missed Friday's game with an illness but is not listed on the injury report for Sunday.

    Bitadze hasn't been able to carve out a role this season with Myles Turner and Domantas Sabonis ahead of him. He isn't likely to have an impact in re-draft leagues this season.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Allen Crabbe appeared to hurt his knee then headed to the locker room on Saturday.

    Crabbe has not been on the fantasy radar. Nevertheless, his minutes will likely go to Josh Okogie if he's unable to return.
