  • Carmelo Anthony
    F, Houston Rockets

    Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said he wants wants Carmelo Anthony on the floor when P.J. Tucker is off, and vice versa because he sees them both as power forwards.

    It was widely assumed that Melo and Tucker would start together but now it appear to not be the case so maybe James Ennis is the starter at the 3. We’ll have to see how his rotation shakes out and if Melo’s staggered minutes coincide with Chris Paul’s. Either way, Melo looks to have a decreased role on offense as James Harden and Chris Paul control the offense.

    James Ennis saw 21 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's finale against the Bulls, scoring eight points with one assist and one steal.

    Ennis showed some potential entering the league but has morphed into an empty stat set guy, averaging just 7.1 points with 0.7 treys, 3.1 boards, 1.0 assists and 1.0 combined steals and blocks in a healthy 22.3 mpg. It was good for just top 225-240 value (8/9 cat) when on the floor and in 72 games he was a top-200 plodder.

    James Ennis (hand) will be available to play against the Sixers on Wednesday.

    Ennis returns from a one-game absence but is nothing more than a deep league guy.

    James Ennis (hand) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Nets.

    Ennis isn't worth owning in any format at this point in the season. Leave him on the wire.

  • Stanley Johnson
    SF/SG, Detroit Pistons

    Coach Stan Van Gundy said Stanley Johnson (back tightness) is “good to go” for Tuesday’s tilt against the Jazz.

    Johnson has been averaging 25.8 mpg of playing time over his last 10 games, but unfortunately it’s not enough for him to have value outside of 16-team leagues. The 21-year-old is capped due to the presence of James Ennis at small forward and Reggie Bullock at shooting guard.

  • Stanley Johnson
    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Stanley Johnson remains questionable ahead of Tuesday because of back spasms but was able to practice on Monday.

    Johnson appears to be nearing a return. He hasn’t shown much this season, however, and his fantasy impact would be minimal as he’s now going to have to take minutes away from the likes of James Ennis and Luke Kennard. Also listed as questionable is backup point guard Dwight Buycks, though he was unable to practice today. Jameer Nelson should take his place until Buycks is healthy enough to return.

  • Reggie Bullock
    SG/SF, Detroit Pistons

    Reggie Bullock missed Monday’s practice but has yet to be ruled out of Tuesday’s game and isn’t on the injury report.

    Bullock was in a minor car accident on Sunday so it’s probably the Pistons giving him an extra day off just to make sure he’s alright. If he were to miss any time, James Ennis and Luke Kennard would be the big winners. It wouldn’t matter in standard leagues. Bullock is worth owning as a low-end source of points and threes.

    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Stanley Johnson has been ruled out of Friday’s game with the Bulls due to back spasms.

    Johnson also missed Wednesday’s game, opening up minutes for James Ennis and Luke Kennard. Langston Galloway also made a brief appearance but is no lock to play tonight. While Kennard started that game against the Raptors, it’ll be Ennis back in the starting five tonight. He’s a decent deep league option while Kennard is a desperation play if you need threes. Johnson frittered away a great opportunity this season and can hit the wire until he’s healthy again. Even then his appeal is limited to leagues with 16 or more team.

    Stanley Johnson (back spasms) has been ruled out of Friday’s game versus the Bulls.

    The minutes will be split up between James Ennis and Luke Kennard . Ennis is expected to start over Kennard and has modest DFS appeal, but can otherwise be left alone on waiver wires.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Luke Kennard will replace James Ennis in the starting lineup for Wednesday’s game against the Raptors.

    Kennard’s inclusion into the starting lineup won’t alter his value too much. He’s nothing more than a 3-point specialist in deeper formats. Ennis will see a dip in value and is also better suited in deeper leagues.

  • Stanley Johnson
    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Stan Van Gundy said that Stanley Johnson didn’t do walkthrough and is a game-time decision tonight against the Raptors.

    Johnson has lost his starting job to James Ennis and is only worth holding in deeper leagues as his minutes have gone down after the trade deadline. He is sitting outside the top-200 for the season and his numbers aren’t really anything special other than the occasional scoring.

  • Stanley Johnson
    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Stanley Johnson (back) and Luke Kennard (illness) are both listed as questionable for Wednesday’s contest against the Raptors.

    Johnson was on pace to see 30-plus minutes a night until the Pistons traded for James Ennis at the deadline. Now the 21-year-old’s role is capped and he only needs to be considered for ownership in 14-team leagues and above. Kennard has played just 9.4 mpg over his last five games which is a far cry from his 17.8 season average. The 21-year-old is only worth holding onto in deeper dynasty leagues.

  • Reggie Bullock
    SF, Detroit Pistons

    Reggie Bullock scored 11 points on Saturday night, adding eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer while shooting 4-of-14 in 33 minutes.

    The fact that Bullock was Detroit’s third-leading scorer says quite a bit about the team’s performance tonight. His shot was off but he at least managed to check some other boxes on the night. Keep rolling him out there as a late-round play. The same can’t be said for James Ennis, who followed up a 21-point outing with seven points, five rebounds and a three.
