Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Juwan Morgan    F    Indiana    
Morgan exited Friday's game against Michigan State in the first half after suffering a left foot injury, reportedly headed to the locker room because of the ailment.

Fantasy Analysis

His return to action Friday remains a question mark at this point, posting two points, three rebounds and an assist before his exit. With a backcourt already shorthanded following De'Ron Davis' season-ending Achilles injury, losing Morgan would likely have major implications. More information on his malady will likely surface after he undergoes tests to determine the extent of it.
D'Mitrik Trice    G    Wisconsin    
Trice (foot) will not return to the floor Friday against Illinois, Jeff Potrykus of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Trice returned to practice earlier this week and was believed to be an option for Friday's contest if everything went well. It appears he will require another game or two on the sidelines, with his next opportunity arriving Tuesday against Iowa. Brad Davison should continue to see a heavy workload at point guard until he's able to rejoin the action.
Makai Mason    G    Yale    
Mason (foot) is expected to return within the next three weeks, Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Mason has yet to take the floor this season for the Bulldogs, but it appears his return is coming sooner rather than later. The team should officially update his status when he's ready to dress, but that return date remains unclear at this point. When healthy, the starting point guard should return to his starring role for Yale.
Trey Thompson    F    Arkansas    
Thompson played on six minutes in Wednesday's game against Florida due to a hamstring injury, Bob Holt of the Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Thompson generally receives double-digit minutes when healthy, but the hamstring issue leaves him questionable heading into Saturday's matchup against Ole Miss. If he's unable to go, Daniel Gafford and Dustin Thomas could see additional minutes.
Rawle Alkins    F    Arizona    
Alkins (foot) will play Saturday against Stanford, Bruce Pascoe of the Arizona Daily Star reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Although Arizona was able to cruise by California without Alkins, having him back makes the Wildcats a far more dangerous team heading into Saturday's road game. Alkins is averaging just under 15 points along with 2.7 assists and 1.7 steals over 30.2 minutes in his nine games on the year. Assuming his foot soreness has subsided, Alkins figures to rejoin the starting five against the Cardinal.
Jordy Tshimanga    C    Nebraska    
Tshimanga (personal) returned to the floor Thursday against Michigan but went scoreless in seven minutes off the bench.

Fantasy Analysis

After being away from the team for close to a week, Tshimanga rejoined the Cornhuskers for practice Tuesday and was able to get into Thursday's matchup. His role was significantly scaled back, however, as he came off the bench for the first time all season and played a mere seven minutes. Whether his limited role was a one-game occurrence or the start of a new trend remains to be seen, which makes Tshimanga's next outing Monday against Ohio State something to closely monitor.
Richard Washington Jr.    F    Wake Forest    
Washington (undisclosed) did not return to the floor for Thursday's game against NC State.

Fantasy Analysis

Washington is believed to be drawing closer to game action, but he has yet to take the floor for the Demon Deacons this season. Even when he does return, the sophomore may not be a huge part of the rotation, averaging only two minutes in his eight appearances last season.
Khalil Richard    G    Siena    
Richard (illness) returned to the floor Thursday against Marist, posting 12 points, three rebounds, and two assists in the win.

Fantasy Analysis

A case of the flu kept Richard out of Siena's last game, but he got back in the fold Thursday and once again was a contributor off the bench. His 12 points were the most Richard had scored since Jan.1 when he scored 14 against Quinnipiac. Now that Richard is healthy, he can be expected to maintain his usual role as a scoring threat off the bench.
Quade Green    G    Kentucky    
Green (back) is wearing practice shorts and athletic shoes ahead of Friday's practice, Kyle Tucker of SECCountry.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Green still appears to be nursing a back injury, and was seen walking gingerly, with a heating pad. Coach John Calipari stated that he'll be a game-time decision for Saturday's contest against Florida, although it's unclear if he'll practice Friday. The freshman guard has sat out each of Kentucky's last three games, and he'll continue to be missed by the Wildcats until he's able to make a return to the court. Green is averaging 10.7 points, 3.4 assists and 2.1 rebounds through 15 games this season.
Doral Moore    C    Wake Forest    
Moore had 15 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks Thursday against North Carolina State.

Fantasy Analysis

It was Moore's second double-double in three games and fifth overall. At 7-foot-1, 280 pounds, Moore has the size that can be difficult to defend, and he's clearly capable of this type of showing nightly. But the Deacons offense is heavily guard dominant, leaving him with inconsistent scoring chances. Moore does have at least eight rebounds in five of six ACC games.
Omer Yurtseven    C    North Carolina State    
Yurtseven had 22 points and eight rebounds Thursday against Wake Forest.

Fantasy Analysis

It was a nice bounce back game from Yurtseven, who was held to six points while committing four fouls at Virginia Sunday. Despite that showing, Yurtseven is averaging 18.3 points over his last four games and appears to have taken another step in his development.
Tadric Jackson    G    Georgia Tech    
Jackson had 14 points, four rebounds and an assist Thursday against Virginia.

Fantasy Analysis

Jackson was the only Yellow Jacket to reach double-digits against the Cavaliers pack line defense. He's now gone for double-digits in three straight, and figures to do so again Saturday in what should be a higher-paced contest at North Carolina.
Ty Jerome    G    Virginia    
Jerome finished with 12 points, six rebounds, five assists and three steals Thursday at Georgia Tech.

Fantasy Analysis

It was a nice, well rounded game for Jerome, who a season high in steals while falling one short in boards. Jerome has enjoyed a nice uptick in assists in ACC play, averaging 5.0 dimes in his last five outings.
DeAndre Hunter    F    Virginia    
Hunter put in 17 points Thursday at Georgia Tech, adding seven rebounds, a block and a steal.

Fantasy Analysis

Hunter hit 7-of-9 from the floor, bouncing back from a two-point outing against North Carolina State last Sunday. Hunter has really blossomed in league play, going for at least 10 points in four of six conference games, but has only two total points in the other two outings, showing the freshman comes with some volatility.
Denzel Mahoney    G    SE Missouri State    
Mahoney scored a career-high 36 points (9-14 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 13-15 FT) with seven rebounds in the win over Southern Illinois-Edwardsville on Thursday.

Fantasy Analysis

Mahoney leads the Ohio Valley Conference with 20.2 points. In his last four games, the 6-4 sophomore has put up 26.8 points on 55.3 percent from the field and 48.3 percent of his 3-pointers. The Redhawks have won two of their last three games, but remain three games out of the OVC lead.
