The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.
Fantasy AnalysisAt this moment it's unclear how serious Rakocevic's injury is, however since he has not been removed to the locker room, there's a decent chance it's not too bad. Watch for more updates on Rakocevic's status as the competition against Saint Louis continues.
Fantasy AnalysisThis will mark the second consecutive game that Nixon has missed due to his foot injury. While there is little information regarding the exact status of his foot, watch for updates on his playing status for the Idaho State game on Thursday.
Fantasy AnalysisThis comes as disappointing news for Utah, as Tillman was the leading rebounder, and third-leading scorer for his team. At this point in time, there isn't much information regarding when Tillman will return, however a note will be posted when the information is available.
Fantasy AnalysisThe Panthers are a really solid team and Iowa State beat them soundly. The Cyclone backcourt is becoming a thing to watch as the trio of Donovan Jackson, Nick Weiler-Babb, and Wigginton have led the team to eight straight wins. The freshman has scored 20 points or more in four of his last five games.
Fantasy AnalysisSims is a super athletic 6-9 freshman who has played 20 or 21 minutes just four times this season. He is the author of a number of highlight plays already and will show up with more thunderous dunks as his playing time increases. His scoring and rebounding production against the Bulldogs were season highs.
Fantasy AnalysisThe Cowboys need help in the paint with Mitchell Solomon being the only guy cleaning the glass. The St. John's transfer was a major shot blocker as a freshman, but transferred midway through his sophomore season. He should be able to help the Cowboys defend the rim.
Fantasy AnalysisCarroll bounced back from a three-point game in the loss to Wichita State last Saturday. He had only hit 22.6 percent of his 3-pointers going into the game against Florida State. It has taken him some time to find his place on the team after missing the first three games while suspended.
Fantasy AnalysisThe 6-5 freshman has not received much playing time in the first five weeks of the season, but he has made the most of his opportunities in blowout wins. He had 16 points in the win over NJIT on Nov. 30 and has scored in double digits in four games despite not playing 20 minutes yet. Allen's time will come.
Fantasy AnalysisThe freshman guard suffered his ankle sprain sometime last week during a team practice, however that is the only information that has been released so far regarding his status. It's unclear how serious his sprain is, however Barcello isn't likely to return too soon. A note will be posted on his status when more information is available.
Fantasy AnalysisIt was unclear whether Logwood would be ready to compete after stepping away from the team to evaluate his own mindset, however it appears as though he will compete against the Wildcats. This is an encouraging return, as Logwood will enter this game averaging 14.9 points and 5.1 rebounds per game, and will be a huge help for the Lobos.
Fantasy AnalysisDespite participating in a full practice a few days earlier, MacDougall will miss his 11th game of the season after sustaining his ankle injury. This is likely a precautionary measure, as New Mexico doesn't want MacDougall to return too early and risk re-injuring his ankle. Whether or not he will return for Tuesday's upcoming game against Rice is still unknown, however a note will be posted when the information is released.
Fantasy AnalysisAfter missing the entire fall semester for academic issues, Doolittle will finally be able to compete on the court again. Last season he averaged 9.1 points and 6.2 rebounds over 25.0 minutes of play, so his return comes as great news for Oklahoma. The Sooners' next game will be on Tuesday, Dec. 19 against Northwestern State.
Fantasy AnalysisAlthough the Shockers fell victim to an upset, Willis was a bright spot. He dominated the glass with a game-high in rebounds to go with a season-best 20 points. Willis is generally used off the bench, but performances like his one Saturday build his case to potentially move into the starting lineup.
Fantasy AnalysisManek and Trae Young led the way for the Sooners as they pulled off the improbable win over the third-ranked Shockers. He was particularly effective from deep, canning five of 13 three-point attempts. Manek and the Sooners will have two more tuneup games before conference play begins Dec. 30.
Fantasy AnalysisThe freshman led the Sooners to a major upset over third-ranked Wichita State, canning timely shots and hitting all of his free throws. Young has already established himself as one of the top players -- not just freshmen -- in the country with a ridiculous 28.8 point-per-game average. He'll look to continue his torrid pace Tuesday against Northwestern State.
