Stan Van Gundy has been relieved of his head coaching duties from the Orlando Magic.

Otis Smith, the Magic GM, has also been let go in the front-office shakeup clearly made to appease franchise cornerstone Dwight Howard. Van Gundy, who had a 259-135 (.657) record in five seasons in Orlando, made the best of a difficult situation all year with the Howard contract saga hanging over the team and will probably have no problem finding another head coaching gig. Despite coaching the team to an NBA Finals in 2009, Howard had lost patience with Van Gundy, and no matter what the front office says, D-12 will have a big say in who the next coach of Orlando will be. The Magic will hold a press conference at 4:30 ET on Monday to discuss the situation in further detail.

Kevin Durant (foot) was spotted going through a shooting drill during Thursday morning's shootaround, and he appeared to be pushing off his right foot much better than he was just a week ago.

Durant is improving, but he will remain sidelined for Thursday's game vs. Chicago. He is without an official return date, and he has yet to go through a full contact practice with the team, but he has stated that he plans to return before the regular season ends. However, until that happens, Russell Westbrook will continue his phenomenal play as the heart of OKC’s offense, and he’ll be a very popular target in daily leagues.

Paul George (leg) was noncommittal when asked about when he'd be able to return to the court this season.

"I didn't set any deadline," said George. "I said I was hopeful after two weeks of working out that I'd be in game-playing shape, but there's still no deadline." He also added that he feels he'll be brought along slowly if/when he is able to return to the court, but when he's been practicing, he has not experienced any pain that would hold him back from doing what he needs to do. We'll continue to track George's progress closely, and while he isn't a must-stash guy with no official return date on the calendar, his upside is certainly significant.

Nick Young (knee) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Memphis.

Young has said that he's targeting a return for Sunday's matchup against the Mavericks, so we'll be considering him on the doubtful side of the questionable tag for Friday's game. When he is able to return to the lineup, Jeremy Lin's value could take a hit.
Mar 5 - 4:09 PM

Avery Bradley (left elbow strain) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Bradley isn't even traveling with the team right now, so we're going to have to consider him questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Magic as well. With Bradley sidelined, Evan Turner, Jae Crowder, and Isaiah Thomas will all have the opportunity to see extended minutes, with Thomas offering the most upside as the guy who will likely be asked to carry a heavier load on offense.
Mar 5 - 3:10 PM

Chandler Parsons (ankle) will remain sidelined for at least two more games.

That means Parsons will be unavailable for Thursday's game vs. the Trail Blazers, as well as Friday's matchup with the Warriors. He did however say that he is hopeful to suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers, so we'll be considering him questionable for that one. With Parsons sidelined, Richard Jefferson will continue to start with Al-Farouq Aminu seeing extended minutes off the bench.
Mar 5 - 2:55 PM

Updating a previous report, JaVale McGee will not be heading to Boston.

The two sides apparently couldn't come to an agreement on the terms of McGee's contract, so he will seek employment elsewhere. McGee is averaging a meager 4.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 0.9 blocks on the season, and unless your league awards points for appearances on Shaqtin' a Fool, McGee belongs on the waiver wire.
Mar 5 - 2:21 PM

Kyle Lowry (rest) said he's making progress and is close to a return.

The Raptors didn't practice on Thursday, but this is good news for Lowry's fantasy owners. Lowry will accompany the team on their three-game road trip so we'll consider him questionable for Friday's game against the Hornets. Greivis Vasquez would again be a solid plug-and-play option if Lowry is unable to suit up against Charlotte.
Mar 5 - 12:59 PM

Patrick Beverley (right foot sprain) is questionable for Friday's game against the Pistons.

Beverley just can't catch a break this season as he's become a mainstay on the injury report. We'll keep an eye on his status after Friday's shootaround, but Jason Terry, Pablo Prigioni, and Corey Brewer would all be in line for more minutes (albeit with limited fantasy value) is Beverley is unable to play on Friday.
Mar 5 - 12:45 PM

Terrence Jones (lower back pain) is questionable for Friday's game against the Pistons.

Jones has been on fire as of late, so his owners will have to watch his status closely leading up to Friday's game. If he's unable to suit up, Josh Smith and Donatas Motiejunas would be in line for big minutes against the Pistons.
Mar 5 - 12:41 PM

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose (knee) is still in the initial phases of his rehab process.

Thibodeau added that Rose has been riding a stationary bike, but it doesn't sound like he'll be traveling with the team to Indianapolis or San Antonio. Rose is planning on returning this season, but it's unlikely he'll return in time to make enough a dent in fantasy leagues and can be left on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Mar 5 - 12:05 PM

Russell Westbrook (face) said he has no issues with his protective mask that he wore during Wednesday's win over the 76ers.

Westbrook recorded his fourth consecutive triple-double Wednesday night and the mask did little to hamper his efforts. "I mean, it was weird, obviously, [I] kept wiping it and it was a total, big process of trying to keep everything from not falling and all this stuff," he said. "But that's not going to stop me. My job is to come out there and lead my team." There's not much else to say about Westbrook right now other than that he should be cemented in every fantasy lineup.
