Jeremy Lin lost 10 pounds this offseason, and said on Tuesday that his surgically-repaired knee is 100 percent healthy.

"I'm good to go," said Lin. He had surgery back in April, so he's had plenty of time to rehab, and he'll have the benefit of a full training camp with his new Rockets' teammates. Houston needs Lin to stay healthy all season, as their backup PG options are less than stellar -- Toney Douglas, Shaun Livingston, and rookie Scott Machado.

Jeff Teague (tender ankle) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Heat.

Head coach Mike Budenholder would not say whether Teague would miss any additional time with the ankle injury, but we'll be considering him questionable for Saturday's game against the Hornets. With Teague out, Dennis Schroder will slide back into the starting lineup, and he looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues tonight with a favorable matchup against Miami.

Bradley Beal (ankle) went through shootaround, but he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Charlotte.

Beal said it's possible that he plays tonight, but he wants to go through pre-game warmups before making an official decision. It sounds like Beal may be headed for the dreaded game-time decision, so owners will need to check back for an update on his status closer to tip-off. If he sits, Rasual Butler, Otto Porter, and Martell Webster would split his minutes. Stay tuned.

Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill will not play Friday vs. the Raptors.

With Boozer and Hill out, Tarik Black and Ryan Kelly will likely remain in the starting unit, with Ed Davis seeing extended minutes off the bench. All three guys can be viewed as low-end streamer options in deep leagues, with Davis and Kelly offering the most upside. Head coach Byron Scott said Hill and Boozer may return to the lineup for either Sunday's game vs. the Nets or Monday's game vs. the 76ers. Stay tuned.

Dwight Howard said he'll have his minutes limit increased to 20 for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

20 minutes may actually be enough time for Howard to rack up some decent statistics against a weak Minnesota frontcourt, so he's someone to consider deploying as a low-end option in very deep leagues. However, the minutes limit, horrendous free throw shooting, and the fact he'll be sitting out of back-to-back sets makes Howard a tough guy to own in standard leagues.

Updating a previous report, Erik Spoelstra said there is a slim chance that Chris Andersen (calf) is able to play Friday vs. Atlanta.

This runs contrary to Andersen's comments that he thought he'd be able to play tonight, so we'll be watching this story closely. If Birdman is unable to go, it will leave Udonis Haslem as the only healthy big on the roster, and he'll more than likely be forced into heavy minutes. Haslem double-doubled through 38 minutes of action during his last outing, so he'll be worth a look as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues if Andersen is forced to sit. Stay tuned.
Mar 27 - 11:57 AM

Hassan Whiteside (hand) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

Whiteside's injury couldn't have come at a worse time for fantasy owners battling their way through the playoffs, and there's currently no clear timetable for his return. We'll be considering him on the doubtful side of questionable for Sunday's game vs. Detroit, and if he's again unable to go, it'll be Chris Andersen (calf) and Udonis Haslem picking up the slack for a Miami frontcourt that has been decimated by injuries. Stay tuned.
Mar 27 - 11:47 AM

Donatas Motiejunas (back) did not participate during shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

Motiejunas isn't headed in the right direction after missing shootaround, so we're going to consider him closer to doubtful than questionable for tonight's game. If he's unable to go, Josh Smith would get all the run he can handle, and he'll be well worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned.
Mar 27 - 11:44 AM

Dwyane Wade (knee) did not go through shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Atlanta.

Head coach Erik Spoelstra said that he doesn't expect Wade to play tonight, so we'll be considering him on the doubtful side of questionable. If he is forced to sit, expect Goran Dragic and Luol Deng to see some increased opportunity on offense, with Mario Chalmers likely starting at the two-spot.
Mar 27 - 11:40 AM

Ryan Kelly stated during a recent interview that he's more comfortable playing at the power forward position.

"I’m a little more comfortable there," Kelly said regarding the power forward spot. "I can get more involved offensively than I had been at times [playing small forward]." Kelly has started at the four-spot the past two games, putting in averages of 13.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 three-pointers, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 block per game. If he can continue to start at power forward, he'll be worth a look in deep leagues for owners seeking some 3-point shooting.

Ersan Ilyasova scored a career-high 34 points on 12-of-14 from the field against the Pacers during a 111-107 win on Thursday, adding six rebounds, two assists, two steals and five 3-pointers.

He gets the fantasy equivalent of a Grammy for posting an effective field goal percentage of 103.6. Back in January, it was a winter war for Ghostface Ilya with his minutes per game at just 17.2. Now, he’s finally been consistent with at least 29 minutes in each of his previous five, averaging 17.0 points, 8.8 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 treys on 45.9 percent from the field. He's spitting hot fire right now and is a must-start player.

George Hill stayed hot against the Bucks on Thursday during a 111-107 loss with 24 points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal and six 3-pointers on 7-of-12 from the field.

His six 3-pointers were a career high and the Bucks just left him open way too often. He's scored at least 20 points in four of his last five, averaging 23.0 points, 4.2 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 triples. Hill no longer has a minutes limit and is one of the hottest properties in fantasy in the past two weeks with second-round value in that span.
