Arron Afflalo hit 10-of-17 shots for 28 points, five rebounds, five assists, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers in Tuesday's loss to the Bulls.

Afflalo got off to a slow start due to a hamstring injury but is fully healthy now. Get him in your lineup and keep him there, as he should continue to go off with Hedo Turkoglu and Jameer Nelson hurting.

Ricky Rubio (ankle), Gorgui Dieng (facial contusion) and Kevin Martin (hamstring) are all questionable to play on Monday.

The Timberwolves are notoriously terrible with their injury updates, and this doesn't really help owners at all. All three players could very well be facing game-time decisions. If Rubio sits, Zach LaVine will start at point guard, if Dieng doesn't play, Justin Hamilton will likely start at center and if Martin is out, expect Lorenzo Brown to draw another start at shooting guard. As a starter, LaVine is averaging 11.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.7 assists, a steal and 0.9 triples on 41 percent shooting.

Dwight Howard (knee) will not play on Monday against the Raptors.

Howard was already ruled out of the contest, and this is just a reminder that he's not cleared to play in back-to-back sets. Without Howard available, the Rockets will have to rely on starting Joey Dorsey inside, going small often and Josh Smith playing all of the minutes he can handle.

Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) and Donatas Motiejunas (back) are both expected back before the end of the regular season, according to Rockets GM Daryl Morey.

That would be great news for a Rockets team that is shorthanded on its frontline. Although neither player has a specific timetable or circled date in an attempt to return, it's encouraging to hear both are making progress. When each is back in the fold, Josh Smith will obviously lose some of his luster.

Luol Deng's knee swelled up at halftime of Sunday's win.

Deng did not play in the second half, and when asked about how he felt, Deng said they'd just take it day-by-day in an attempt to get all of the swelling out of the area. Right now, he sounds very iffy for Tuesday, leaving James Ennis as a possibility to start in his place. Ennis started the second half for Deng on Sunday and finished with 16 points, six rebounds and two threes on 5-of-7 shooting in 24.5 minutes.

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said Al Jefferson will not be 100 percent again this season.

While nobody in the NBA is playing at 100 percent health at this point, Jefferson looked noticeably slow in his last game and may be in danger of wearing down. "The other night he was limping. He feels better today but it is going to be game-to-game with him," Clifford said. Jefferson's owners will have to check his status regularly for the remainder of the regular season.

Brandon Knight (ankle) did not have a noticeable limp after Sunday's game, but his status may be in jeopardy for Monday's road game in Portland.

Suns coach Jeff Hornacek reportedly said, "I would guess he wouldn't play." The report suggests that Knight will miss Thursday's game in Golden State, but it makes more sense that Hornacek was referencing Monday's game, the second half of a back-to-back set. Either way, Knight's owners should be on red-alert for a potential DNP.

The Thunder won a critical game in Phoenix on Sunday behind Russell Westbrook's 33 points (10-of-29 FGs, 12-of-14 FTs), nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block.

Westbrook now has 24 games with 30+ points this season and he's racking up gaudy fantasy lines on a nightly basis, though tonight's production was tainted by a lousy FG percentage. Kevin Durant (foot) is done for the season and Serge Ibaka (knee) won't return until mid-April at the earliest, leaving Westbrook to single-handedly carry the Thunder in the playoffs. So far, so good, as he's staked the Thunder to a 2.5-game lead over the No. 9 seed Pelicans.

Brandon Knight returned to action on Sunday, coming off the Suns bench for three points, two rebounds, four assists and one steal in 22 minutes, while shooting just 1-of-10 from the field.

He missed all six of his 3-point attempts and the poor shooting is a product of rust -- he hadn't played in a game since Mar. 9. The bad news is that he took a hard fall tonight and might be in danger of missing Monday's road game in Portland, so owners should confirm his status in the second half of the Suns' back-to-back set.
Mar 29 - 11:51 PM

T.J. Warren sank 8-of-10 shots to finish Sunday's home loss with a career-high 18 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

The Suns' playoff hopes to a massive blow with tonight's loss, but Warren's emergence as a reliable bench scorer provides another silver lining for their season. He did his damage in 29 minutes tonight, without any turnovers, but fantasy owners should still be skeptical -- efficient shooting hasn't amounted to much given his 17.8 minutes per game over the past three weeks.
Mar 29 - 11:50 PM

C.J. Miles poured in a game-high 28 points to help Indiana beat the visiting Mavericks on Sunday, making 9-of-12 field goals with five 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Miles also went 5-of-6 at the FT line, richly rewarding owners who gambled on him despite the return of Rodney Stuckey (calf). He's been good enough to keep in all active lineups, especially since the playoff-hungry Pacers are heading into a four-game week.
Mar 29 - 10:09 PM

Chandler Parsons flourished against the Pacers on Sunday, scoring 27 points on 11-of-20 shooting with 10 boards, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

Parsons got some extra looks on offense with Monta Ellis (calf) in street clothes, and it looks like his owners can expect a modest bump in production down the stretch. Parsons will get a favorable matchup vs. Kyle Singler and the Thunder on Wednesday, so owners in daily leagues should give him a long look.
