A Rotoworld source indicates that Phil Jackson met with the Lakers at Staples Center last week.

Mike Brown has been relieved of his duties and Jackson's keynote speaker address at a Schwab conference has been canceled in Chicago for next week, pointing a lot of fingers at Jackson becoming the next coach of the Lakers. Jackson would have to come out of retirement and may ask for an arrangement limiting his travel, but the fact he reportedly met with the team last week is intriguing. Our guess is Phil Jackson will be the next coach of the Lakers. Stay tuned.

The Pacers have reportedly signed Lance Stephenson to a three-year deal worth $12 million.

Mar 29 - 12:58 PM

Seth Curry (shoulder) was a full participant during shootaround and said he feels like he's "good to go" for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.

It looks like the shoulder issue will only end up costing Curry one game on the sidelines, and if he is indeed able to get back to the court tonight, Yogi Ferrell will return to the bench and J.J. Barea's playing time could be confined to the teens. Check back for official confirmation on Curry's status closer to tip-off.

Marc Gasol (left foot strain) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup with the Pacers.

This will mark Gasol's third straight game on the sidelines, and with just two games remaining on the schedule for Memphis this week, owners in head-to-head leagues without an IR-spot fighting to advance to the next round may need to seriously consider cutting the three-time All-Star. Zach Randolph should be looking at another start tonight, and Mike Conley will be tasked with the heavy lifting on offense.

The Pacers are reportedly working on a deal to bring back Lance Stephenson.

Indiana opened up a roster spot by waiving Rodney Stuckey on Wednesday, so it appears that three years after Born Ready declined a five-year, $44 million deal from the Pacers, Larry Bird will be able to get him on the books for the veteran's minimum. While Stephenson did have a nice season the last time he put on a Pacers' jersey in 2013, he's been dreadful for the past three years, so this is wait-and-see territory just about everywhere.
Mar 29 - 12:28 PM

DeMarre Carroll (back) was a full participant during shootaround, and he'll try to play Wednesday vs. the Hornets.

Dwane Casey confirmed that if Carroll is able to give it a go tonight, he'll reclaim his spot in the starting five, which will result in P.J. Tucker returning to the second unit. Carroll has been woefully inconsistent this season, so even if he is able to get out there, he can be left on the waiver wire in standard leagues.

Luke Walton confirmed on Tuesday that he has no intention of shutting down Brandon Ingram (right knee tendinitis) for the rest of the season.

Walton wants Ingram to get through a practice before he returns to the court, so we should have a better idea on his status for Thursday's game based on his activity during Wednesday's practice. That being said, despite earning 36 minutes a night over the past month, Ingram has ranked well outside the top-150 with averages of 13.0 points, 4.2 boards, 2.4 dimes, 1.0 steal and 2.3 turnovers per game, so there's not much incentive to hang onto him through the injury in most leagues.

James Harden acknowledged after Tuesday's 5-of-20 shooting performance that his left (shooting) wrist is giving him problems, but he doesn't anticipate spending any time on the sidelines.

"It's pretty tough, man, I'm not going to lie," said Harden of fighting through the pain with his wrist. "I don't like to feel sorry for myself at all, but just the shot is short and frustrating when you can't really follow through and whatnot. I'm going to continue to go out there and do my best." While Harden has made it clear he has no interest of getting hit with a rest day, it's Mike D'Antoni who will ultimately be able to decide if he plays Thursday vs. Portland. Check back for another update following Thursday morning's shootaround.

D'Angelo Russell posted a gem of a line on Tuesday vs. the Wizards with 28 points, nine assists, six rebounds, one block and four 3-pointers.

He was well on pace for a triple-double, but the Lakers had a meltdown in the fourth quarter when they were outscored 37-13. Regardless, Russell shot 10-of-21 from the field and hit all four of his free throws, drawing the praise of head coach Luke Walton after the game -- Walton said he looked "brilliant" and praised him for his aggressiveness, passing and how he pushed the pace. Russell's value is locked and loaded the rest of the way, assuming Walton doesn't bench him again.
Mar 29 - 1:40 AM

John Wall lit up the Lakers for 34 points and 14 assists in Tuesday's 119-108 win.

Trailing by 13 points entering the fourth, the Wizards outscored the Lakers 37-13 in the final quarter. Wall finished 14-of-25 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line with three rebounds, four steals and one triple in 37 minutes, improving the Wizards to 30-12 since the new year. The Wizards play three more times this week against the Clippers on Wednesday, the Jazz on Friday and the Warriors on Sunday.
Mar 29 - 1:24 AM

C.J. McCollum went off for 39 points on 15-of-24 shooting in Tuesday's crucial win over the Nuggets.

Portland has now won a season-high tying four straight games and improved to 12-3 in March which ties them with San Antonio for the league's best record in that span. As for McCollum, this was the second- highest scoring game of his career and he finished four points shy of his career-high (43). He hit all six of his free throws with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three triples in 40 minutes, and with the Blazers holding a 1.0 game advantage over Denver for the No. 8 seed, McCollum should be an elite option the rest of the way.
Mar 29 - 12:45 AM

Jusuf Nurkic went off in a 122-113 win over his former team on Tuesday, scoring a career-high 33 points on 12-of-15 shooting (9-of-11 FTs).

He wanted this win in the worst way and his teammates swarmed him after his career night with the Blazer crowd chanting his name like a scene in Gladiator. He ripped down 16 rebounds with two assists and three blocks in 33 minutes, giving his team a 1.0 game lead over the Nuggets for the No. 8 seed in the West. He's been phenomenal since his move to Portland and he will likely be on a lot of championship rosters in fantasy leagues.
