Timberwolves sign C Greg Stiemsma on Thursday.

They finally made it official after the Celtics withdrew their qualifying offer to the big man. Stiemsma will come off the bench and back up starter Nikola Pekovic, taking over the role formerly held by Mr. Darko Milicic. He'll block some shots again after averaging 1.5 of them per game last year, but shouldn't get enough minutes to be worth owning in most fantasy leagues. If he does get more minutes than we're expecting, the blocks will follow, as he was second in the league last year in blocks per minute, trailing only Serge Ibaka. He's also had an ongoing battle with plantar fasciitis, which caused him to withdraw from the USA Select Team over the summer.

Robert Covington went off for 21 points and 13 rebounds in a 106-101 win over the Nets on Tuesdays.

The 76ers only dressed nine players, so RoCo logged 38 minutes and posted a gem of a line with one assist, two steals, two blocks and one triple. The biggest knock on him is that he doesn't shoot it efficiently from the field, but he hit 9-of-15 shots in addition to a pair of free throws. He's been a top-12 player in standard fantasy leagues for two months and is a monster in real life too -- he's ranked inside the top five in the entire league in Defensive Real Plus-Minus.

Draymond Green tweaked his left ankle during the second half of Tuesday's game vs. the Rockets, but he's available to return.

He was in the locker room for about five minutes and had a noticeable limp at first, but he had his ankle re-taped and looked much better walking back to the bench. We'll have an update after the game, but it looks like his owners dodged a bullet.

DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Mavericks.

The big man has missed two games in a row and the Pelicans haven't said much about the injury. The Pelicans will hold a shootaround Wednesday morning, so that's when his owners will have a better idea of his status. If he's out, Dante Cunningham will likely start, but you would have to be very desperate to look his way. Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis will have higher ceilings if Boogie sits.
Mar 28 - 9:31 PM

Ian Mahinmi (hip) and Bojan Bogdanovic (back) will play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

Mahinmi went through a full practice on Monday and should be ready for his normal workload off the bench. However, fantasy owners can continue to ignore him while Marcin Gortat is healthy.
Mar 28 - 9:13 PM

Jordan Clarkson (hand) will play on Tuesday vs. Wizards.

He was diagnosed with a bruised fifth metacarpal on Sunday, but he was able to play through the injury. We'll let you know how he fares tonight, but his fantasy owners can go ahead and deploy him in lineups.
Mar 28 - 8:53 PM

Jon Leuer is starting in place of Tobias Harris on Tuesday vs. the Heat.

Interesting. Coach Stan Van Gundy previously said that Harris would start for the rest of the season, but the Pistons have lost four straight games and SVG is going to shake things up. Leuer's numbers only get a modest bump in the first unit, so he's just a low-end pickup. The big man is averaging 10.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 0.4 triples in March.
Mar 28 - 7:26 PM

Taurean Prince will draw another start on Tuesday vs. the Suns.

Thabo Sefolosha (groin), Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) are all out, and Bazemore is the only player expected back on Wednesday. That means Prince is looking at a significant workload tonight and could have some nice short-term value this whole week. In his previous start, Prince went off for 17 points, six boards, one assist, three steals, one block and two triples in 38 minutes.
Mar 28 - 7:19 PM

Derrick Jones Jr. will start in place of Devin Booker (ankle) on Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

Booker has an "ankle" injury, but there have been some reports that the tanking Suns are just resting him. Jones is more of a defender who rarely scores outside of the paint, so there's not much fantasy upside here. In five starts this season, Jones has averaged 4.0 points and 4.6 rebounds.
Mar 28 - 7:09 PM

The Warriors will provide an update on Kevin Durant (knee) on Wednesday.

Durant has looked great while going through his pregame routines as of late, and he'll be re-evaluated on Wednesday, after which, the Warriors will offer an update. Durant was initially targeting a mid-April return, but we'll have to wait for tomorrow's update to see if anything has changed on that speculative timetable. He might be worth a speculative add in deep leagues with things trending in a positive direction, but know that he'll be on a strict minutes limit upon his return.
Mar 28 - 6:40 PM

Devin Booker (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.

Booker has been dealing with this ankle issue since March 19, and apparently aggravated it during his 70-point explosion against the Celtics, so for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Thursday's game against the Clippers. Derrick Jones Jr. will likely slide into the starting five tonight sans Booker, while T.J. Warren will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense. Jones Jr. isn't a great target in most settings, but Warren makes sense in DFS, as he'll easily be Phoenix's go-to guy on offense tonight.
Mar 28 - 6:09 PM

Reggie Jackson (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Heat.

There have been recent reports speculating that the Pistons may eventually elect to shut down Jackson, but Stan Van Gundy stated during his pre-game interview that Jackson is simply day-to-day and stressed that he really wants to play. That being said, Jackson has been playing terribly for the past month, so there's little incentive to hang onto him in most leagues. Ish Smith will earn another start tonight, and he's worth a look if you need some dimes and steals.
