      Fewer storms will develop this afternoon as drier air arrives in the Tampa Bay area. There's just a 20% chance of a late-day shower near the coast.
      Slightly lower humidity means a nearly dry day across Tampa Bay. Rain chances return by the weekend.

    NBA Who's Hot, Who's Not - March 12

    Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - There are plenty of distractions with the NCAA tournament starting this week and baseball right around the corner, but there is still almost two months left in the NBA season, so now is not the time to quit on your fantasy hoop team. Make the tough choices and watch your chances of victory improve.

    Hot

    Rodney Stuckey, Detroit - Stuckey started the season slowly, but has improved his scoring in each month until his March production makes him a valuable fantasy option. In four games this month, Stuckey is averaging 21.3 ppg, 3.0 rpg and 5.0 apg. He and Pistons rookie Brandon Knight make up an interesting backcourt in which both post double-digit points each game.

    Corey Maggette, Charlotte - If it seems like Maggette has been around forever, it's not an illusion, the 32-year-old is in his 13th season. Maggette has always been a scorer and after an injury-filled January and February, he is doing just that. In six March games, Maggette is averaging 22.0 ppg; he averaged 13.7 ppg for the previous three months. He should be in your starting lineup.

    Jared Dudley, Phoenix - Dudley still isn't quite up to a fantasy-worthy shooting guard level, but he's getting close and projects to be there shortly. Better to get him on your roster now than regret letting someone else pick him up just ahead of you. Over the past four seasons, Dudley's scoring average has jumped from 5.5 ppg to 8.2 to 10.6 and 12.5 in 2011-12. His March production is 17.7 ppg, 7.7 rpg and 2.0 apg. Despite this rapid improvement, he's still available in one out of every four Yahoo leagues.

    Cold

    Stephen Curry, Golden State - Curry's problem is that he just can't stay healthy. And worse, he's trying to play on his ankle and foot injuries, which produce ugly stats lines like the one he gave us in Sunday night's contest against the Los Angeles Clippers - nine minutes, 0-for-3 from the field, three rebounds, one assist, zero points. I'd rather he sit out until he can play at least 25 minutes without limping to the locker room. Nate Robinson should be a good temporary alternative.

    Roy Hibbert, Indiana - Hibbert had played so well for the first three months, that his sudden lack of production in March is mystifying to many experts. He averaged 13.7 ppg and 9.6 rpg for the first 34 games, but in his last five contests is putting up just 6.8 ppg and 6.8 rpg. He's shooting less, averaging just seven shots per game, down from 11.2 in the first three months and making just 31.4 percent of his field-goal attempts after shooting 51.4 percent for the first 34 games. There doesn't appear to be anything physically wrong with the Pacers center, so have patience and his game should eventually return.

    Kevin Martin, Houston - Martin has continued his roller coaster ride of a season by scoring just 15 total points in the last three games. After averaging 20.5 ppg over the first two months of the season, Martin is posting just 13.9 ppg in February and March. That's not the worst news, however. Head coach Kevin McHale has taken him out of the mix during the fourth quarter recently and Martin's total minutes played has dropped dramatically. He's averaged barely over 20 minutes of playing time in the last four games. Given those parameters, it's time to sit him on the bench until conditions change for the better.
