Andrew Bynum, who will miss most of training camp due to a bone bruise in his knee, is said to be in "great condition," according to the Inquirer's John Mitchell.

"He’s trim. He’s engaging his teammates and coaches. And if they were playing games right now, Bynum would be out there," Mitchell wrote. That might be an optimistic take, as Bynum was shut down for three weeks due to his knee condition, while Rotoworld also heard from a source over the summer that suggested Bynum wasn't in top physical shape entering camp. But if the plan of rest works and Bynum really is in tip-top shape, he should have a dominant season in Philly, and could be the No. 1 center to own in fantasy. He's due back on the court around October 24, when we should know much more about how he's going to look in the early part of the season.

Khris Middleton broke out of his shooting slump on Wednesday, going 8-of-14 from the field with three 3-pointers for 19 points, six rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block.

Middleton came in shooting a combined 11-of-42 shooting in his past three games (26.2 percent), so this was a welcome change of pace. Milwaukee is in a virtual tie with the Hawks for the No. 5 seed, and just two games separate them from the No. 9 seed Bulls. They're playing for their postseason lives, in other words, so key guys like Middleton shouldn't have to worry about DNPs or rest down the stretch.

Giannis Antetokounmpo did it all during Wednesday's road win in Boston, scoring 22 points with nine rebounds, three assists, three steals, three blocks and two 3-pointers.

Giannis finished 8-of-17 from the field, and the only area in which he wasn't dominant was free throw shooting -- he went 4-of-7 from the stripe. He earned well-deserved praise from Celtics coach Brad Stevens before the game. "I don't know if I've ever seen anybody like him [in transition]," Stevens said. "Obviously, LeBron is the guy you would compare [him] to with the size, the length, the speed, the ability to change direction and finish." As a reminder, he's still just 22 years old.

Terrence Ross played well in a tough loss on Wednesday, hitting 9-of-17 shots with five 3-pointers for 23 points, two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block.

The efficiency, 3-pointers and defensive stats combine to make this one of T-Ross' best lines of the season, and he logged 45 minutes in an eventual overtime defeat. Aaron Gordon chipped in 13 points, five boards and four steals, and Nikola Vucevic had 11 points, 16 boards and two blocks, but it wasn't enough to beat the one-man wrecking-crew named Russell Westbrook.

Russell Westbrook followed up Monday's heroics with another astounding performance, dropping 57 points (21-of-40 FGs, 9-of-11 FTs), 13 rebounds, 11 assists, six 3-pointers and three steals in a comeback overtime win vs. Orlando on Wednesday.

Westbrook led a furious charge to send this game into OT, capped by a clutch 3-pointer against two defenders to tie the game (see the link below). This was the highest-scoring game ever with a triple-double and Westy now has 38 of them on the year, three behind Oscar Robertson's single-season record. Magic swingman Evan Fournier advocated Westbrook as a "co-MVP" with James Harden before the game, and fantasy owners will also be hard-pressed to make a distinction between those two studs.
Mar 29 - 10:29 PM

Darren Collison, Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein will start against the Jazz on Wednesday.

With Kosta Koufos resting again, the Kings will go back to Skal here. The rookie has been a disaster in a past handful of games, but now he gets a tough matchup against the Jazz.
Mar 29 - 10:27 PM

Andrew Harrison (right ankle) is doubtful to return against the Pacers on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies are going to be a little thin tonight and will be giving a few extra minutes to Troy Daniels. If Harrison needs to miss time, they might get Wade Baldwin in the rotation again. There's little fantasy value changing here.
Mar 29 - 9:49 PM

Matt Barnes will start and Patrick McCaw will come off the bench against the Spurs on Wednesday.

The Warriors will go away from McCaw after his 0-of-12 against the Spurs in the last game against them back on Mar. 11. Barnes figures to play minutes in the 20s, but he's not really a fantasy option.
Mar 29 - 9:26 PM

Gordon Hayward (quad) will play and Dante Exum will start against the Kings on Wednesday.

He's back after missing just one game due to a knee to his quad from Austin Rivers. Hayward went through shootaround today and he did try to play through the injury initially, so Hayward should be close to 100 percent. His return should take minutes from Joe Ingles, Joe Johnson and maybe even Rodney Hood.
Mar 29 - 9:18 PM

J.J. Redick (ankle) will play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He's back after missing one game. Redick landed on a basketball to turn his ankle and it didn't look too bad on Saturday, so expect Redick to be somewhat close to 100 percent. He's still only a borderline asset in fantasy while Austin Rivers loses value here.
Mar 29 - 8:56 PM

Brandan Wright will start against the Pacers on Wednesday and Zach Randolph will move to the bench.

The Grizzlies need some scoring in their second unit, so they'll have their 22nd different starting lineup today. Wright should be looking at minutes in the 20s and is a viable play in fantasy. He will only have short-term value until Marc Gasol (foot) can return.
Mar 29 - 7:54 PM

JaMychal Green (left shoulder soreness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Indiana.

Memphis will be without Green and Marc Gasol (foot) tonight, so the Grizzlies will roll out a new starting frontcourt of James Ennis and Brandan Wright. Zach Randolph will very likely see his minutes in the 30s tonight, despite coming off the bench, and Mike Conley will be working with a robust usage rate. The Grizzlies play again Friday vs. Dallas, and for now, we'll be considering Green questionable for that one.
