Ian Mahinmi will be capped at 15-17 minutes for the next two weeks.

He's probably not going to play more than that even when he is 100 percent. Marcin Gortat has sneakily been one of the best centers in the Eastern Conference, so don't expect him to lose playing time.
Feb 24 - 5:45 PM

Jahlil Okafor will start at center on Friday night vs. the Wizards.

With Nerlens Noel in Dallas and Joel Embiid expected to miss the Sixers next four games, Okafor will start and will likely play heavy minutes. Okafor has started 22 games this season and is averaging 13.5 points (on 55.4 percent shooting), 5.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 25.4 minutes in those starts. He is an enticing DFS and streaming option on Friday. Richaun Holmes will backup Okafor.
Feb 24 - 5:42 PM

Robert Covington will start and is expected to get minutes as the backup power forward against the Wizards on Friday.

Justin Anderson is also expected to see a little run at the four. This actually isn't new for either with Covington coming up as a power forward in the Houston system and Anderson getting run at the four under coach Rick Carlisle at times. Plus, with Ersan Ilyasova out, RoCo should be the primary trigger man. If he can hit shots, he should have some big nights going forward.
Feb 24 - 5:42 PM

Al Jefferson (dental pain) will not play on Friday against the Grizzlies.

Hopefully this is just a one-day thing for Jefferson, who was not on the injury report just an hour ago. With the Pacers getting their power forwards back, Kevin Seraphin should slide over the backup five spot behind Myles Turner against the bigger Memphis front line. Turner also get a slight bump, too.
Feb 24 - 5:37 PM

Justin Anderson is available for Friday against the Wizards.

With the 76ers having almost no chance to get a first-round pick in the Nerlens Noel trade, they're clearly invested in Anderson. He's a great fit in Philly's system and should see minutes at three positions, especially with Dario Saric as the only healthy power forward. Anderson is more of a watch-list guy in fantasy, but coach Brett Brown should get a good look at him the rest of the way.
Feb 24 - 5:33 PM

C.J. Miles is expected to start on Friday vs. Memphis, which will bump Glenn Robinson III back to the bench.

Robinson, who won the Dunk Contest last weekend, had started each of the Pacers last three games prior to the All-Star break. On the season, he has started 27 games and been a reserve in the other 28. Robinson is averaging just 4.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 14.6 minutes in those games in which he has come off the bench. He can be left on the wire.

C.J. Miles is expected to start and Glenn Robinson will come off the bench on Friday against the Grizzlies.

Coach Nate McMillan said this move is contingent on Thaddeus Young (wrist) starting. Young is probable, so Miles should be in the first unit today. His value shouldn't change too much in the starting lineup as a 3-point specialist.
Feb 24 - 5:26 PM

General manager Ryan McDonough thinks Marquese Chriss "will get a lot of opportunity" for the rest of the season.

The GM said the Suns were going with more of a half youth movement to this point, but now things will be geared more towards the young guys going forward. In February, the Suns rolled with P.J. Tucker and T.J. Warren together for 124 minutes in those nine games, so that piece of the pie in the rotation is up for grabs with Chriss as the favorite to soak up most of those. He should trend up with more consistency going forward.
