Patrick Beverley (groin) said that he will play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

"It's still a little tight, but [this is] that time of the season. Your body is not going to be 100 percent," Beverley said. "Tried to be cautious with it, push through it and try to keep this thing going. I'm mentally tough. I know I'm not going to be 100 percent; I'm not going to be 90 percent. But if I feel good, I'm going to try to give it a go no matter what." Beverley appeared to be fine on Saturday vs. the Wolves with 15 points, seven assists, four rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes, so his fantasy owners should deploy him barring a late surprise.

Kings GM Vlade Divac said that Bogdan Bogdanovic will join the team this summer.

The 24-year-old wing is one of the best prospects in Europe and he's going to land in an ideal situation in Sacramento -- Ben McLemore will be a free agent and Arron Afflalo's contract for next season isn't guaranteed. For now, he's just a stash in deep dynasty leagues.

Jaylen Brown believes that his shot is making progress.

"I've worked on my shot because that's what people have been critiquing me on my whole life," Brown said. "I think I've gotten a lot better, and I'm going to continue to get better at it. I like to get to the basket, but some of those shots I do have to let fly." Brown hit a big triple in Sunday's win over the Pistons in the final minute, and the Celtics are now 10-2 when he has started for Avery Bradley (Achilles). According to Synergy Sports, Brown ranks 15th in the league in points allowed per play, and while he has a very bright future for the Celtics, his role could take a massive hit when Bradley returns from injury.

The Knicks have recalled Ron Baker, Maurice Ndour and Mashall Plumlee from the D-League.

Ndour and Plumlee likely won't be in the rotation, but Baker now has a chance to fight for the backup PG role with Chasson Randle because the Knicks are waiving Brandon Jennings. To be clear, Baker is not a fantasy pickup.

The Knicks are planning to use their open roster spot to sign Chasson Randle.

Randle was with the Knicks during the offseason, but was waived after suffering an orbital wall fracture. He ended up in Philly, but was eventually waived as the 76ers needed his roster spot to acquire Andrew Bogut in the Nerlens Noel trade. Randle has some talent and is a solid 3-point shooter, so he could be very interesting later in the season if Derrick Rose gets hurt or is shut down. He will be signed for the remainder of the season and will have a team option for next season.

The Knicks will waive PG Brandon Jennings.

It's a sign that the Knicks are ready to rebuild, as Jennings is on an expiring $5 million contract and they are planning to use his roster spot to sign Chasson Randle. Jennings averaged 8.6 points and 4.9 assists with the Knicks, but only shot 38.0 percent from the field. Maybe he lands in an ideal situation for fantasy value, but he's not a great stash at the moment. He will more than likely join up with a playoff team, so we're not optimistic.

Chris Paul dished out 17 assists with zero turnovers on Sunday, adding 15 points and nine rebounds in 41 minutes during an overtime win vs. Charlotte.

CP3 had never recorded seven assists and five rebounds in a single first quarter in his esteemed career, but he did it in the first quarter tonight. He also passed John Stockton with the most games of at least 15 points and 15 rebounds without a single turnover, having done it six times. He shot an uncharacteristic 4-of-18 from the field tonight, but needless to say, he's looked perfectly healthy since returning ahead of schedule from thumb surgery.
Feb 27 - 12:54 AM

J.J. Redick had it going early on Sunday, finishing 9-of-16 from the field with three 3-pointers to score 22 points with two rebounds, two assists and one steal.

Redick typically starts games hot and assumes a less prominent role as the game progresses, and that was the case again tonight. Fortunately for his fantasy owners, his 16 first-half points were enough to buoy his value in almost any format, and his 38 minutes tonight tied a season high.
