Lonzo Ball (knee) is out for Saturday, as expected.

He is getting off for the second night of a back-to-back set and this was the plan last night. Coach Luke Walton said Ball’s knee responded well on Friday night after missing over a month. Ball also just finished a workout on Saturday and looked good. He'll be playing on Monday and should play more than 17 minutes.
Feb 24 - 8:50 PM

Joel Embiid scored 28 points with 14 rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Magic during a 116-105 win.

Coach Brett Brown left his second unit in down the stretch in the fourth quarter despite the Magic cutting a big lead to as little as nine with 2:15 left. After the game, Embiid said he is planning on playing in the back-to-back set against the Wizards on Sunday, so he should be all set for that one. As for his team, they're the hottest team in the Eastern Conference, they've won seven straight, and they're the healthiest they've been in years. It's certainly possible they can earn a top-four seed.

Dirk Nowitzki (back) is expected to play on Saturday against the Jazz.

This is a surprise after Dirk had a back issue in the fourth quarter on Friday. This speaks volumes to how Dirk may want to play as many games as he can, so this is terrific news for his fantasy owners.
Feb 24 - 7:48 PM

Jimmy Butler (knee) is expected to undergo surgery in coming days and could return within 4-6 weeks, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.

Typically, a 4-6 week timeline is tied to a medial meniscectomy, so that may be what Butler has planned -- lateral or medial has not been specified yet. This basically rules Butler out until April, so his fantasy owners will have to figure out how important their next 4-6 weeks are. Dropping him is an option while adding Nemanja Bjelica makes sense.
Feb 24 - 7:46 PM

Marco Belinelli scored 15 points with two rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

This was kind of a garbage-time special with nine points coming in the fourth quarter, so don't overreact to this one. Belinelli is only a deep-league specialist.
Feb 24 - 7:41 PM

Richaun Holmes played 21 minutes with four points, eight rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block against the Magic on Saturday.

Finally. He took over the backup C spot and maybe coach Brett Brown will run him out there again. We'd probably like to see him do it again, but Holmes could have sneaky value with around 20-23 minutes per game.
Feb 24 - 7:39 PM

Aaron Gordon scored 20 points during a 116-105 loss to the 76ers on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, one block, four 3-pointers and matching his career-high seven dimes in 31 minutes.

The biggest takeaway for Gordon is that coach Frank Vogel let him bring the ball up a lot in the fourth quarter as the Magic played without a point guard down the stretch. Before this, he looked very rusty for about the first 60 percent of the game with terrible shot selection, but Gordon finally started to move and had his jumper fall the rest of the way. The PG move is a nice little bonus and he'll trend up very soon.
Feb 24 - 7:36 PM

Mario Hezonja scored 13 points with two rebounds, two assists, three steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

Perhaps the most noteworthy part of this game from a Magic perspective is that the Magic played most of the fourth quarter with Mario, Aaron Gordon, Jonathon Simmons, Evan Fournier and Nikola Vucevic, so they're OK going no PG. Coach Frank Vogel said he's going to play Mario "a lot" of minutes and it sounds like he's going to keep his word. Mario should be owned in standard leagues.
