Latest Headlines

Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) did not participate in Monday's morning shootaround.

To be clear, he remains questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans. This means he will likely test out his quad in pre-game warmups. X-rays were negative and it shouldn't be a long-term issue, and Hayward does have a lot of incentive to play since the Jazz currently hold a 1.0 game lead over the Clippers for the No. 4 seed. If he can't go, Joe Ingles will be a solid streaming option in his absence.

Al Jefferson (ankle) is expected to miss at least a few days according to coach Nate McMillan.

This means it's safe to rule him out for Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves. X-rays came back negative after he sprained his left ankle on Sunday, but Big Al woke up on Monday morning with a lot of swelling. He's also still on crutches and in a walking boot. In his absence, Lavoy Allen, Kevin Seraphin and Rakeem Christmas are all candidates for more minutes, but there are no fantasy pickups here.

Kyle Korver (foot) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

Not good. He's dealing with left foot soreness again, the same issue that sidelined him for seven games earlier this month. Fantasy owners can't mess around during the playoffs, and considering coach Tyronn Lue doesn't know when the sharpshooter will return, it makes sense to evaluate other options. With Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) considered questionable, J.R. Smith should get a lot of burn.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said he doesn't know Paul Millsap's (knee) status for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns.

"Hopefully between now and then he makes more progress and there is a chance but at this point we don’t know about Tuesday," Budenholzer said on Sunday afternoon. Millsap has missed five games in a row due to left knee tightness, and the good news is that an MRI showed no damage. Hopefully we'll get a better idea of Millsap's status before weekly lineups lock later this evening. If he misses more time, Ersan Ilyasova will continue to benefit the most.

James Harden said he will play on Tuesday vs. the Warriors despite aggravating his left wrist on Sunday vs. the Thunder.

He left Sunday's game vs. the Thunder in the final minute after a hard a fall and didn't return, but he said that he's "good." Coach Mike D'Antoni hinted that Harden may get a maintenance day at some point, but not if Harden has anything to say about it. "It's something he's probably going to have to put up with the rest of the year," D'Antoni said. "It's a tendon. He jammed it. Hopefully, he's good. If he needs to rest, he'll rest and make sure he gets well, but knowing him, he wants to play." With Harden hoping to lock up the MVP Award, his fantasy owners shouldn't be too concerned.

Jahlil Okafor said that the 76ers are being "super cautious" with his right knee.

He has missed two games in a row with right knee soreness and nine total games on the season, and there currently isn't a timetable for his return. "If we were like on the verge of trying to get a playoff spot or something like that, I could go out there and play," Okafor said. "But Coach Brown and all of our people behind the scenes don’t believe it’s necessary for me to play if my knee is feeling sore and stuff like that." This has been a lost season for Okafor and fantasy owners should've moved on a long time ago. Richaun Holmes and Shawn Long will continue to see a bump in value while he's out.

The Blazers earned their 12th consecutive win vs. the Lakers on Sunday, led by Damian Lillard's 22 points, four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, five assists and three steals.

Lillard made 7-of-20 FGs and 4-of-7 FTs tonight, but he committed only one turnover in 30 minutes of action. The playing time barely topped C.J. McCollum (13 points, three assists, four turnovers) for a high among Portland's starters, as the lopsided score allowed coach Terry Stotts to lean heavily on his reserves. The Blazers are now in a virtual tie with Denver for the No. 8 seed, and owners can expect Lillard's best during Tuesday's crucial home game vs. the Nuggets -- Lillard said his team has to approach the game "locked-in like never before."
Mar 27 - 12:32 AM

Klay Thompson dropped a game-high 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting on Sunday, going 7-of-11 from deep with two rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 35 minutes.

Klay struggled on Friday with eight points on 3-of-14 shooting, but otherwise he's been on fire -- excluding that dud, he's averaging 27.7 points and 5.3 triples on 57.1 percent shooting over his previous six games. He single-handedly won the 3-point category for plenty of owners this week, making a ridiculous 21 treys.
Mar 26 - 11:03 PM

Andre Iguodala had a hyper-efficient game on Sunday, making 7-of-8 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with two 3-pointers for 20 points, while adding seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and zero turnovers.

Iguodala logged 32 minutes tonight and he's been critical to the Warriors' success since Kevin Durant went down. For what it's worth, Steve Kerr didn't explicitly rule out resting Iguodala over the next week, which includes a back-to-back set vs. the Spurs and Rockets. He has been awesome lately, and owners should simply monitor his status prior to each of Golden State's games.
Mar 26 - 11:00 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Jazz, according to coach Alvin Gentry.

For what it's worth, Cousins took some shots during halftime on Sunday with a pronounced limp. The Pelicans may not hold a shootaround prior to the second game in a back-to-back set, but owners should check for updates in the afternoon. Dante Cunningham will likely earn another start if Cousins isn't ready to go vs. Utah.
Mar 26 - 10:40 PM

X-rays were negative on Al Jefferson's sprained left ankle, and he was in good spirits after Sunday's game.

"Everything seemed normal so it's just an ankle sprain," Jefferson said. He was in a great deal of pain after the injury and left the court in a wheelchair, however, and the veteran center could easily miss extended time here. If he does get some DNPs, that would open up a few extra minutes for Lavoy Allen, Kevin Seraphin and Rakeem Christmas.
