Latest Fantasy College Basketball News

The most recent fantasy college basketball news from RotoWire.

Khalea Turner-Morris    C    Massachusetts    
Turner-Morris (concussion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against VCU, Matt Vautour of the Daily Hampshire Gazette reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Turner-Morris is making progress in concussion protocol, leaving coaches hopeful that center will be ready for Saturday's game against George Mason. Malik Hines and C.J. Anderson will continue to see an uptick in minutes Wednesday night with Turner-Morris sidelined.
Solomon Young    F    Iowa State    
Young (knee) underwent successful arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Young is expected to make a full recovery and should resume basketball activities in three to four weeks, which likely means the sophomore forward's season is over. Young started 26 games for the Cyclones this season, averaging 7.2 points and 5.9 rebounds in those contests.
Nick Weiler-Babb    G    Iowa State    
Weiler-Babb (knee) is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

Fantasy Analysis

Weiler-Babb will continue to go through further testing over the next couple of days but after visiting with physicians this week it seems as if the junior's season could be over. With Weiler-Babb sidelined, Lindell Wigginton will likely take over as starting point guard for the foreseeable future.
Dru Smith    G    Evansville    
Smith (foot) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with Indiana State, Pat Hickey of the Evansville Courier & Press reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Smith has missed five of the past six contests due to a bone bruise on his right foot but could be in line for a return to the court Wednesday. When healthy, Smith has been one of the top offensive performers for Evansville, averaging 13.4 points, 4.7 assists and 2.2 steals per game this season.
Phil Booth    G    Villanova    
Booth (hand) was able to participate in practice Tuesday.

Fantasy Analysis

Booth hasn't been able to practice since injuring his hand on Jan. 23, however, this is a good sign regarding his availability for Wednesday's game against DePaul. His status will likely depend on how the hand responds to practicing for the first time in almost a month, and how he feels during pregame warmups prior to tip.
Donovan Jackson    G    Iowa State    
Jackson could be unavailable for Wednesday's matchup against TCU due to a family matter, Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Jackson's father passed away sometime during the weekend, and he's returned to Milwaukee to be with family. It's unclear if he'll be back in time for Wednesday's contest, so he'll likely be a game-time decision. If the senior guard doesn't play, look for Lindell Wigginton, Terrence Lewis and Jakolby Long to see more minutes.
Hans Brase    F    Iowa State    
Brase (undisclosed) was able to practice Monday, and will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup against TCU, Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Brase has missed Iowa State's last four games due to injury, but he could make a return to the court Wednesday. The Cyclones have been depleted by injuries of late, and desperately need the senior forward back, especially with Nick Wieler-Babb and Solomon Young likely out for the rest of the season. Coach Steve Prohm is "hopeful" that Brase will be in uniform against TCU, but his status likely won't be determined until pregame warmups prior to tip.
Geo Baker    G    Rutgers    
Baker didn't travel with the team for Tuesday's matchup against Ohio State due to flu-like symptoms, Jerry Carino of the Asbury Park Press reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Baker has been a key contributor for the Scarlet Knights this season, starting all 29 games and averaging 10.9 points along with 2.8 assists. Rutgers will likely be in for a rough night without one of their most productive scorers. In Baker's absence, expect Souf Mensah and Jake Dadika to see increased minutes.
Taishaun Johnson    G    Kent State    
Johnson hasn't taken the court since Dec. 6 against Xavier.

Fantasy Analysis

Johnson has appeared in just eight games for the Golden Flashes this season and is averaging 2.6 points and 1.8 rebounds in 9.5 minutes per game. It's unclear if he'll be able to take the court before the 2017-2018 season draws to a close. Consider Johnson out indefinitely until further updates on his status are released.
Caleb Sedore    C    Lehigh    
Sedore has been sidelined for Lehigh's last six games with an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Analysis

It's unclear how severe Sedore's injury is, but with no recent updates on his status he'll likely sit out Wednesday against Loyola. Until more information about the injury is released, expect the junior center to remain on the shelf.
Joniah White    C       
White announced his decision to end his college basketball career due to a heart issue, the News Star reports.

Fantasy Analysis

White missed most of the 2015-2016 season while dealing with heart issues, and they continued to hamper his performance throughout his college career. He started 20 games this season for the Bulldogs, averaging 4.1 points and 4.2 rebounds per game.
Steven Haney    F    Loyola Marymount    
Haney suffered a season-ending knee injury Feb. 10 against Pepperdine, Whitney Ogden of The Spokesman-Review reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Haney broke a bone in his knee during the final minutes against Pepperdine, and he'll be forced to miss the rest of the 2017-2018 season. The senior forward started 22 games for the Lions this season, averaging 12.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game.
Marshall Graves    G    Louisiana State    
Graves injured his shoulder during practice in early February, Andrew Lopez of NOLA.com reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Since suffering a shoulder injury in practice, Graves has missed four out of the last five games. He gave it a go against Alabama on Feb. 13 but only lasted three minutes and failed to score. Graves will likely be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with Vanderbilt and his status should be determined in pregame warmups prior to tip.
Kristinn Palsson    F       
Palsson left the team due to personal reasons, A.J. Martelli of the Poughkeepsie Journal reports.

Fantasy Analysis

After exams in December concluded, Palsson headed home to Iceland because of recent deaths within his family. He appeared in just nine games during the 2017-2018 season, averaging 2.8 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game.
Ronnie Rousseau III    G    Missouri State    
Rousseau missed Sunday's game against Drake due to illness, Lyndal Scranton of the Springfield News-Leader reports.

Fantasy Analysis

Rousseau missed Sunday's game with an illness, and will likely be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup. The senior guard is averaging 5.3 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists through 26 games this season.
