The Celtics want to find ways to get Al Horford more involved in the offense.

Horford has been underutilized of late. Over Boston's last four games, Horford is averaging just 9.5 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists. "Definitely, we’ve got to get Horford more involved and that’s my job," Isaiah Thomas said. "I’ll do a better job of getting him the ball Sunday... I’m the point guard of this team and I’ve got to do a better job of getting him the ball in his spots." Hopefully, with the help of his teammates, Horford is able to bounce back and start putting up the numbers fantasy owners have grown accustomed to.

E'Twaun Moore (personal) will not play Saturday vs. the Mavericks.

The Pelicans backcourt is already incredibly thin after New Orleans traded away Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway in the DeMarcus Cousins deal. Tim Frazier and Hollis Thompson will see extended minutes on Saturday. It's possible that the Pels choose to start Frazier alongside Jrue Holiday.

Derrick Rose is not looking to get a buyout from the Knicks, as he still hopes to sign with New York long-term.

Rose was purportedly almost swapped for Ricky Rubio at the deadline, but the Knicks were asking for an extra piece and the Wolves declined. Rose now says he wants to re-sign with the Knicks this summer. "I hope so. They didn’t trade me,’’ Rose said. "That’s a good sign." From a fantasy perspective, Rose has exceeded modest expectations this season, due in large part because he has been able to stay healthy for the most of the year.

Richard Jefferson will start in place of LeBron James (illness) if James is unable to play Saturday night vs. the Bulls.

LeBron missed the team's shootaround this morning and is listed as questionable. Even if he is inserted into the starting lineup, Jefferson is not a reliable fantasy contributor. He has started six games this season but is averaging just 6.8 points and 1.7 rebounds in those six contests. Incredibly, the Cavs are just 4-18 since the start of the 2014 season when James doesn't play.

Patrick Beverley (left groin tightness) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. Minnesota.

Beverly suffered a minor groin injury that forced him out of Houston's final game prior to the All-Star break. However, coach Mike D'Antoni said that Beverley was "fine" before Thursday's game and Beverly finished with two points, 12 rebounds, five assists and four steals in 30 minutes in that contest. Unfortunately, he may have aggravated the groin, although it's never wise to read too much into the game notes designation. If Beverly does not play, Eric Gordon and Lou Williams would see additional minutes.

Coach Dwane Casey said he is unsure how long Kyle Lowry (wrist) is going to be out, but that "it's not a one-day thing."

Lowry, who sat out Friday's win over Boston, originally hurt his right wrist on Feb. 15. He iced his wrist while on the bench during the All-Star game, but told reporters he wasn’t in any serious pain and that he would be fine. He reportedly even went golfing on Sunday morning. "It was a little sore, paid no attention to it," said Lowry. "But it just constantly stayed bothering me." We will have to wait for an update from the Raptors in order to have a clear idea of what we are looking at going forward. Cory Joseph started and had 11 points and six assists on Friday.

Cody Zeller (quad) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's game vs. the Kings.

Zeller has missed 11 of the Hornets last 12 games due to the quad injury. Frank Kaminsky, who would draw another start if Zeller is unable to go on Saturday, has been the prime beneficiary. Over Charlotte's last eight games, Kaminsky is averaging 17.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 2.1 treys, 1.3 steals and just 1.0 turnover.

C.J. Watson (Achilles) will miss at least another a week.

Watson injured the Achilles in the Magic's last game before the All-Star break, but it did not improve as hoped over the last week. As a result, the Magic have discussed signing another point guard to a 10-day contract. With Watson sidelined, Elfrid Payton, D.J. Augustin and Mario Hezonja will divvy up his minutes.
