The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Derrick Woods    F    St. Bonaventure    
Woods decided to transfer from St. Bonaventure on Wednesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Woods started 22 games and made 30 appearances with the Bonnies in 2015-16, averaging 3.5 points and 2.4 rebounds in 13 minutes per game. The forward was expected to gain a bigger role as a sophomore this season. Woods hasn't decided where he will spend his last three years of eligibility.
Dillon Brooks    F    Oregon    
According to head coach Dana Altman, Brooks has a problems with his foot and currently isn't working out with the team, Steve Mims of the Register Guard reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Altman also noted that Brooks' foot issue was not a fracture. Brooks led the team in average points and assists in the 2015-16 season, posting 16.7 points, 5.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, and 1.1 steals in 33 minutes per game. The Ducks were very excited when their highest scoring player withdrew his name from the 2016 NBA Draft, but if he doesn't take care of this foot issue, they may need to find a new top scorer for the season. There will likely be more updates on Brooks' status when the fall camp begins.
Rashann London    G    Drexel    
London will transfer to North Carolina Central, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

London played two years with the Dragons, and averaged 7.5 points, 2.3 rebounds, and 2.3 assists in 30 minutes per game. He may have to sit out a year due to NCAA transfer rules.
Malcolm Bernard    F    Xavier    
Bernard has elected to transfer to Xavier, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

After spending his first two collegiate seasons with Charleston Southern, Bernard spent his junior year with Florida A&M, compiling averages of 14.4 points, 7.1 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.3 steals over 32 minutes. Already being listed as a pre-season top-25 team, Xavier lands another gifted player in Bernard, who should be eligible to play right away considering his status as a graduate transfer.
Kobe Paras    F    Creighton    
Paras will sign with Creighton for the upcoming season.

Fantasy Analysis

Paras originally signed with UCLA, but due to academic issues preventing him from enrolling, he'll now join Creighton instead. An extremely athletic prospect evidenced by his FIBA Championship U18 slam dunk contest title, Paras is a solid addition for the Bluejays. While he's not guaranteed playing time as a freshman, Paras should have an opportunity to battle for minutes in the backcourt.
Isaiah Roby    F    Nebraska    
Roby is dealing with a stress reaction in his pelvis and will be sidelined roughly six-to-eight weeks, Brian Rosenthal of the Lincoln Journal Star reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Roby has dealt with pain in his pelvis for some time now, going all the way back to his high school playing days. After finally taking an X-Ray recently, the stress reaction was found, so Roby will now take on a heavy dosage of rest and recovery. With a six-to-eight week timeline for a return, Roby should be back to full strength prior to the start of the regular season, but as in an incoming freshman, he'll have to earn his right to playing time in his first year with the Huskers.
Tramaine Isabell    G    Drexel    
Isabell will transfer to Drexel University Jason McCleary of Left Coast Recruiting reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Isabell has decided to transfer to Drexel University. He will sit out next year but will then have two years of eligibility. The guard was a valuable member of the back court rotation at Missouri and will look to bring his versatility to his new team. He averaged 1.7 rebounds per game and had a free throw percentage of 73.7 during the 2015 season.
Naz Mitrou-Long    G    Iowa State    
Mitrou-Long (hip) suffered an ankle injury on Friday, but isn't expected to miss an extended period of time, Randy Peterson of the Des Moines Register reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Mitrou-Long suffered the injury while playing with a summer league team at the local YMCA on Friday. The injury is being considered a "rolled ankle" and after an X-Ray showed no structural damage, he's expected to be back on the court in 7-to-10 days. Mitrou-Long was granted a medical redshirt this past season after having surgery on his hips, so despite an ankle injury to go along with his past hip injuries, look for him to be at full strength when the season gets underway.
Schnider Herard    C    Mississippi State    
Herard has transformed his body to be leaner, dropping a total of 30 pounds, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Heard came to campus a hefty 290 pounds, but has dropped to 260 since working out with the team. The 6-foot-10 freshman is a four-star recruit out of Texas, and he'll be a good replacement for Gavin Ware.
Basil Smotherman    F    Purdue    
Smotherman has been suspended for Purdue's season opener against McNeese State for a violation of team rules, according to the Journal Courier.

Fantasy Analysis

Smotherman will also miss a closed scrimmage against West Virginia and an exhibition game against Southern Indiana. Court records show he was pulled over for speeding and charged with possession of paraphernelia on June 5. Smotherman redshirted last season, after averaging 3.8 points and 2.8 rebounds per game over his freshman and sophomore seasons, and he will first be eligible to return for the Boilermakers' Nov. 14 home game against defending national champion Villanova.
Maurice Jeffers    F    Boston College    
Jeffers will transfer to Boston College, Zack Spears of EagleAction.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Jeffers isn't the most skilled offensively, averaging just 5.2 points over 23 minutes per game in 2015-16, but he is a solid rebounder and shot blocker, as he rejected a shot a game last season. Jeffers graduated from Delaware, so he will immediately eligible to play for Boston College in the 2016-17 season.
Rashawn Browne    G    New Mexico State    
Browne has decided to transfer from New Mexico State, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Browne, a reserve guard, averaged 2.2 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 12 minutes per game. He has two years of eligibility remaining, but has not yet decided where he will transfer.
Deontae Hawkins    F    Illinois State    
Hawkins had his hard cast removed from his broken right foot and is now walking in a boot, Jim Benson of the Pantagraph reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Hawkins broken foot currently does not have a timetable for return. Hawkins averaged 10.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 25 minutes per game during his sophomore year.
Lamonte Bearden    G    Buffalo    
Bearden has been given his release to transfer from Buffalo, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Bearden was the team's top scorer in the 2015-16 season, averaging 13.7 points, 4.2 assists, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.6 steals over 30 minutes per game. The junior guard could score and finish inside, but he struggled from behind the arc, connecting on just 25 percent of his attempts from outside. His list of transfer options include: Nevada, Arizona, TCU, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, Marquette, Iowa State, and Miami.
Kellen McCormick    F    Georgia Tech    
McCormick will play out his final year of eligibility at Georgia Tech, Jeff Goodman of ESPN reports.

Fantasy Analysis

During his junior season, McCormick netted 6.0 PPG and 1.9 RPG. McCormick immediately walks into Georgia Tech as the team's leading scorer heading into next year. His ability to shoot the ball consistently from beyond-the-arc (46 percent) makes him a lethal threat when on the court.
