The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisCoach Andy Kennedy indicated that he's still "gathering details" on the situation, but the potential for a suspension looms. In his first season with Ole Miss in 2014-15, Moody posted a strong statline, averaging 16.6 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists while shooting over 90 percent from the free throw line. The rehabbing from a stress fracture that will sideline him until at least August, but now his beginning of the regular season may be in danger as well.
Fantasy AnalysisNichols will have to sit out a year, but he should still have two years of eligibility remaining starting with the 2016-17 season. Nichols spent his first two collegiate years with the Memphis Tigers. During the 2014-15 season, he finished with averages of 13.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.0 assists and an impressive 3.4 blocks over 30 minutes per game. He'll provide the Cavaliers with another big man who will help to add to their stout defensive reputation.
Fantasy AnalysisThe Pan Am games include both collegiate and professional players (Andrew Nicholson had 31 points and 10 boards for Team Canada), so Murray's performance is quite noticeable. In Canada's four wins, the Kentucky incoming-freshman has averaged 17.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 2.8 assists. Canada will play Brazil in the championship game on Saturday.
Fantasy AnalysisGoard started 16 games for the Thundering Herd in 2013-14 and averaged 6.3 points and 4.7 rebounds. The 6-7 forward may get major playing time with Brandon Watkins (knee) out.
Fantasy AnalysisColeman-Lands will miss Illinois' August international games, but should be ready for the Illini season opener in November. Without proper recovery time, this injury could linger into the regular season, which is why Illinois will shut him down for now.
Fantasy AnalysisThomas recently transfered to Arkansas earlier in the summer, but his debut with a new school will likely be pushed back as he faces an impending suspension yet to be released. He's joined by teammates Anton Beard and Jacorey Williams who are reportedly facing the same allegations.
Fantasy AnalysisWilliams is not alone, as teammates Anton Beard and Jacorey Williams are both in the same boat as they face similar suspensions based on the same incident. Arkansas hasn't officially stated how long these players will be suspended but the start of their 2015-16 season seems to be in danger.
Fantasy AnalysisBeard will be joined by teammates Jacorey Williams and Dustin Thomas who are both facing similar allegations. It remains unclear if their suspension will carry over into the start of the 2015-16 season, although it seems likely.
Fantasy AnalysisCroaker spent his first two years of eligibility at Texas but was phased out of the lineup altogether by the end of last season, and clearly he was unhappy with his amount of playing time and chose to transfer elsewhere. Despite the lack of experience via playing time, Croaker is expected to play a major role for the Racers this season and should have plenty of ball-handling opportunities as a 6-4 guard.
Fantasy AnalysisCalhoun played in 11 games last season, averaging 5.1 minutes, 0.5 points, and 0.4 assists per game. He has three seasons of eligibility remaining, but would likely have to sit out one season if he transfers to another Division 1 program.
Fantasy AnalysisBell will not play in the Ducks' August trip to Spain. As a freshman in 2014-15, the 6-9 center provided 5.1 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks (which led the Pac 12).
Fantasy AnalysisJackson is coming off a productive freshman season with George Mason in which he started 22 games. He averaged 8.7 points and 3.9 rebounds. The 6-6 wing will have three years of eligibility remaining after sitting out the 2015-16 season.
Fantasy AnalysisGill-Caesar finished his freshman campaign with averages of 9.1 points, 3.0 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game in Missouri. The soon to be sophomore will now have to sit out a year before having the ability to play with his new team. Gill-Caesar also has been dealing with a lingering back issue, which is something the Missouri coaches were concerned with. That's something future teams will have to look into before accepting him into their program.
Fantasy AnalysisBlackmon Jr. is one of the best players to return to the Big Ten this season, but it appears as if the start of his season will be slowed by injury. He averaged 15.7 and 5.3 rebounds in his freshman campaign, and if he can be fully healthy in time for the start of the season, he will play a key role in returning Indiana back to the top of the conference.
Fantasy AnalysisMahmoud had surgery to repair a torn left medial meniscus at the beginning of June and originally had a timetable of 4-to-6 weeks of recovery. He remains on track with that timetable and should be back to practice in full by the end of the month. With Montrezl Harrell now in the NBA, Mahmoud could have the opportunity to battle for a much larger role come the start of the season. He averaged just 1.2 points and 1.4 rebounds over eight minutes per game as a freshman.
