Deron Williams has officially signed with the Cavs.

Williams will not be available for Monday's game against the Bucks, but head coach Tyronn Lue said he's hopeful to have Williams active for Wednesday's game against the Celtics. Williams will just be backing up Kyrie Irving in Cleveland, and while he could have some value on the nights the Cavs' studs are rested, he'll be a non-factor in most leagues while the team is at full strength. Interestingly, Williams will wear No. 31 for Cleveland... that's 3-1. Typically, he wears No. 8.

Thon Maker will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Cavs.

Maker will be replaced by John Henson in the starting lineup, and it's unclear if this is just a matchup-based decision, of if Kidd will be moving with Henson in the starting lineup moving forward. Either way, Maker was only averaging 16.7 minutes per game as a starter, so his value won't change much with the move to the bench.

John Henson will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Cavs, sending Thon Maker back to the bench.

The Bucks will roll out a starting five featuring Matthew Dellavedova, Tony Snell, Michael Beasley, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Henson, so maybe Henson can see his minutes in the 20s tonight. Maker has been starting, but he's only been playing minutes in the teens, so his move to the bench doesn't really have much of an impact in fantasy hoops.

Quincy Acy (ankle) participated during Monday's practice.

Acy hasn't played since Feb. 5 due to the ankle issue, but this is the first report we have on him going through practice in any capacity, so maybe he can get back on the court for Wednesday's game in Sacramento. That being said, Acy is only averaging 11 minutes per game in Brooklyn, so his playing status is irrelevant in fantasy hoops.

Jeff Hornacek said that with the departure of Brandon Jennings, he may look to give more minutes to Derrick Rose and Ron Baker.

Hornacek said that Baker and Chasson Randle will battle for the backup point guard minutes, but Baker will get the first shot at picking up most of Jennings' minutes. Rose has been averaging 32.3 minutes per game this season, so maybe he'll be able to see that number closer to 36 with Jennings no longer around. Although, given Rose's well-documented injury history, Hornacek may want to keep Rose's playing time in the lower-30s.
Feb 27 - 6:25 PM

Mike Dunleavy (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Celtics.

With Dunleavy unavailable, Ryan Kelly will join the active roster, and he could see his minutes in the teens. Neither of these guys have any fantasy value.
Feb 27 - 6:16 PM

Michael Beasley will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Cavs, with Khris Middleton (rest) unavailable.

This was the expected move, and Beasley could be flirting with minutes in the 30s tonight. He's been scoring very efficiently lately, so he could be worth a look as a streamer, although with a tough matchup in what will likely be a down-tempo game he isn't the best DFS target.
Feb 27 - 6:02 PM

Deron Williams will not be available for Monday's game against the Bucks.

Head coach Tyronn Lue is hopeful to have Williams available for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, but he will not be able to make his Cavs' debut tonight. Williams lost a ton of value with the move to Cleveland, so owners in most leagues should probably just move on and send him to the wire.
