The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisWalton will be further evaluated on Wednesday, but his status for Sunday's game against Michigan State has to be considered up in the air right now.
Fantasy AnalysisPetteway entered the game second in the Big Ten in scoring (19.6 points per game). He is now averaging 19.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game this season.
Fantasy AnalysisShields was the only Cornhusker to get much going offensively. He is averaging 16.6 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game this season.
Fantasy AnalysisDavis showed that his career-high 25 points against DePaul on Saturday were not a fluke. The sophomore has averaged 17.2 points over his last five games.
Fantasy AnalysisCoach Steve Alford said he hoped Powell did not have the flu, so it is unclear exactly how serious of an illness this is. Monitor his status prior to Thursday's game, as it could wind up being a game-time decision.
Fantasy AnalysisCousins is currently dealing with a sprained wrist, but he seems to have a pretty strong chance of suiting up for this week's Big-12 matchup. The junior guard was limited to 18 minutes of action in Saturday's loss to Baylor, but he doesn't appear to be dealing with the prospect of a long term absence.
Fantasy AnalysisHe was not warming up with his teammates, and left the team and hobbled to the locker room with an undisclosed injury. Walton was then seen in street clothes. We will update his status when we know what the nature of the injury is, but for now, consider him day-to-day.
Fantasy AnalysisJustice injured his foot in Saturday's game and was initially believed to be dealing with only a sprain. However, upon further examination, the fracture was revealed, and the freshman will miss the rest of the season. Justice was averaging 4.6 points, 1.6 assists and 1.2 rebounds in just under 13 minutes per game.
Fantasy AnalysisMorris didn't turn the ball over once on Monday, which has become almost an everyday occurrence as of late. He still leads the country in assist to turnover ratio by a large margin, and provides great production in every category. His 5.63 APG leads the Big 12 conference.
Fantasy AnalysisDejean-Jones put up great numbers in just 27 minutes of action on Monday, which was the least among any starter on the Cyclones team. This was a much needed performance after two sluggish games from the senior guard. Keep an eye on him moving forward to see what this leads to. He's averaging 12.7 PPG, 5.8 RPG, 2.8 APG.
Fantasy AnalysisNiang was the leading scorer in the game for either team on Monday, and he led the Cyclones to a big bounce back win over the Longhorns. He continues to impress and has now scored in double digits in eight straight games. Niang performs at a high level night in and night out, and should be in your lineup every time the Cyclones tip it up.
Fantasy AnalysisHolmes notched his fourth double-double of the season on Monday in a strong performance for the Longhorns. After being held scoreless at Oklahoma State two weeks ago, Holmes has scored in double digits in three of his last four games. For the most part, he is very consistent and provides a good source of points and rebounds. Holmes averages 11.9 PPG and 6.7 RPG.
Fantasy AnalysisUpshaw was dismissed from Fresno State after his freshman season in 2012-13. He added 10.9 points and 8.2 rebounds to his blocks. The Huskies don't have an adequate replacement, but junior Gilles Dierickx should get more playing time. Jernard Jarreau is also out after knee surgery.
Fantasy AnalysisTaylor led the team with 33 minutes of action on Monday which suggests that he is back to 100 percent after returning from a wrist injury. He's put up solid numbers since returning and should only get better. Taylor is averaging 13.1 PPG, 3.6 RPG and 3.7 APG.
