Latest Headlines

Gustavo Ayon will play with the Magic this season according to reliable beat writer Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

Sportando passed along a bunk report from an unknown source and looks like they'll have egg on their face this time. Ayon is the slight favorite to start over Nikola Vucevic at center for the Magic, and with the lack of depth in Orlando he is worth a look late in drafts, regardless.

Russell Westbrook (face) won't miss much time due to his facial surgery on Saturday, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Feb 28 - 5:06 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) did not practice on Saturday and he is up in the air for Sunday against the Blazers.

He tried to play through his ankle sprain from Wednesday and it's apparently costing him playing time. The Kings will likely update Cousins again tomorrow morning, but he should be considered questionable for now. With Cousins out on Friday, Jason Thompson double-doubled and Ben McLemore also stepped up with 21 points. Both should have a similar chance to perform sans DMC.

Festus Ezeli will be suspended for Sunday's game against the Celtics.

He got into it with Tyler Hansbrough on Friday and this isn't a surprise. Ezeli doesn't really play more than 15 minutes even when the Warriors are missing guys, so he's not worth owning in almost any league. Andrew Bogut is also less likely to be rested on Sunday with Ezeli out.

Jose Calderon (Achilles) will not play on Saturday against the Raptors.

An MRI revealed he has a strain in his Achilles and it's fair to assume he's going to miss multiple games. Calderon said he doesn't want to shut it down, but he's usually taken a long time to recover from injuries. With Calderon out, Shane Larkin is going to benefit most, but he's still not worth grabbing in standard leagues. Langston Galloway will also have more opportunity.

Russell Westbrook (face) underwent a successful procedure to address a fracture to the zygomatic arch and will be re-evaluated this week.

He is not going to play on Sunday, but he hasn't officially been ruled out for Wednesday against the 76ers. Westbrook is likely going to have to play with a mask upon his return and we still really have no idea how much time he's going to miss. In the meantime, it makes sense to grab D.J. Augustin in all standard leagues until Westy is back. Westbrook owners have to just sit tight and hope he can continue his triple-double streak right after being re-evaluated. To be clear, this doesn't sound like bad news.

Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) is "out a while" due to his ankle sprain, according to coach Brian Shaw.

There is no timetable, but the sense is that he's going to need at least a week or maybe even a month to get over this injury. Nurkic was posting some elite value and could have been a top-50 player the rest of the way, so his owners will have to weigh their options on keeping him. While he's out, Joffrey Lauvergne seems to be benefitting most, but he's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Feb 28 - 3:53 PM

Nick Young (knee) will not play against the Thunder on Sunday.

He is still dealing with swelling in his knee and the fact that the Lakers ruled him out a day before the game suggests he could miss Tuesday against the Hornets. Wayne Ellngton had a great second half on Friday while Jeremy Lin is finally starting to put some good games together, averaging 16.3 points, 2.0 boards, 4.3 assists and 0.8 treys in his last four. Young can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 28 - 3:36 PM

Andrew Bogut could be rested on Sunday against the Celtics.

Coach Steve Kerr said it comes down to whether or not Festus Ezeli is suspended. If Ezeli doesn't get a suspension for his altercation with Tyler Hansbrough on Friday, Bogut will likely sit. If Bogut does miss that game, Marreese Speights and David Lee will benefit most.

Derrick Rose (knee) started his rehab on Saturday.

His surgery wasn't nearly as severe as last time, so he's obviously not going to need five months like he did back in the 2013-14 season to allow his torn meniscus to heal. For what it's worth, Metta World Peace needed less than two weeks to return from a torn meniscus earlier in his career, so Rose's 4-6 week timetable is doable. Still, he's not worth owning because the Bulls will likely take it easy on him until the playoffs. Aaron Brooks has been a letdown, but he's still worth a look in standard leagues.
Feb 28 - 2:24 PM

Pau Gasol (illness) is ready to play against the Clippers on Sunday.

He missed Friday due to an illness, but he should be right back up there with his normal playing time. The Bulls used a combination of Nazr Mohammad and a lot of small-ball lineups on Friday, so there wasn't a great pickup after Taj Gibson (ankle) went down. Gasol owners should have him back in their lineups.
Feb 28 - 2:20 PM

Taj Gibson (ankle) is doubtful to play against the Clippers on Sunday.

He had a limp leaving the arena on Friday night and he's also been dealing with his left ankle issues fro much of this season. The last time he had ankle problems, Gibson needed to miss four games, but of course every injury is different. The Bulls moved Nikola Mirotic back to power forward, which actually led to some bigger production out of Mike Dunleavy. Considering the upside, Mirotic is worth a look in standard leagues.
