Gary Neal sat out Thursday's game against the Knicks due to a cut on his right hand.

Neal cut the index finger on his right hand handling a piece of luggage Tuesday and the injury worsened before Thursday's game. It doesn't sound serious, but Neal's fantasy value is limited by Tony Parker's health. If you were still holding on to Neal, this should be enough to part ways.

J.J. Barea is starting alongside Rajon Rondo, Monta Ellis, Richard Jefferson and Dirk Nowitzki for Saturdy's game vs. the Nets.

The Mavericks are going small in order to match up better with the Nets, as they are currently starting Joe Johnson at power forward. It's going to be interesting to see how the Mavericks play with three ball-dominant guards on the court at the same time, but it's not likely to happen too often. Barea is capable of contributing a decent amount of points, assists and 3-pointers, but his value is still limited to deeper leagues for now. Bernard James started in place of Tyson Chandler (hip) on Wednesday against the Hawks and scored seven points with 11 rebounds and two blocks, but he will return to a bench role for tonight's contest.

Tyson Chandler (hip) will not play on Saturday night against the Nets.

Bernard James will be the starting center again tonight. Chandler is getting close to a return and he should be back at some point next week. Expect to see more Al-Farouq Aminu getting minutes at power forward, too.
Feb 28 - 7:55 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play on Saturday against the Jazz.

The Bucks are going to need his offense off the bench with Jared Dudley sidelined with a knee injury, so owners in need of scoring and 3-pointers should give him a look. Mayo has missed the last two games due to injury, so we will let you know how his hamstring holds up after the game.
Feb 28 - 7:46 PM

Jared Dudley (knee) will not play against the Jazz on Saturday.

X-rays were negative on his kneecap and he appears to be day-to-day. However, it's tough to gauge how much time he is going to miss because Dudley did have an issue with his kneecap last year. He can be dropped in most leagues. Ersan Ilyasova and Jerryd Bayless likely get most of Dudley's minutes. Ilyasova is worth a look in standard leagues and we'll let you know how he does tonight.
Feb 28 - 7:45 PM

Chandler Parsons (ankle) is hopeful that he can return against the Pelicans on Monday.

Parsons is going to test out his ankle on Sunday before making a decision regarding the game against the Pelicans, but it certainly sounds like he is getting closer to a return. Richard Jefferson's value will take a massive hit when Parsons does return, while Al-Farouq Aminu will see a reduced as well. That being said, Aminu is still worth holing onto in deeper leagues for his ability to contribute in multiple categories.
Feb 28 - 7:42 PM

Amir Johnson is start against the Knicks on Saturday and Patrick Patterson is coming off the bench.

This move might be due to Kyle Lowry not playing or it could be due to how the Raptors were thumped on Friday. Regardless, there isn't much fantasy impact here and Johnson remains only a low-end player to own in standard leagues.
Feb 28 - 7:32 PM

Kevin Garnett will move back into the starting lineup for Saturday's game vs. the Grizzlies, sending Adreian Payne back to the bench.

Garnett is going to constantly be at risk of picking up DNPs this this season, especially in away games, making him tough to own outside of the deepest of leagues. It's safe to leave Garnett on the wire, but it certainly is great to see back in Minnesota.
Feb 28 - 7:25 PM

Henry Walker will start at power forward against the Hawks with Udonis Haslem coming off the bench.

With Chris Andersen out, Haslem needs to play backup center for the Heat tonight. Walker has been on a roll lately and he's quickly already climbing into the conversation for 14-team leagues.
Feb 28 - 7:17 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) is considered doubtful for Sunday's game vs. Portland.

While he wasn't able to practice on Saturday, he was able to get a few shots up afterwards. Cousins was held out of Friday's game vs. the Spurs, and with the Kings going nowhere in the Western Conference, they will probably err on the side of caution Sunday. Jason Thompson is coming off a double-double and would be worth a look in daily leagues if Cousins sits, while Carl Landry and Reggie Evans will see increased roles as well. Expect another update after shootaround Sunday morning.
Feb 28 - 6:59 PM

Chris Andersen (illness) will not play against the Hawks on Saturday.

The Heat are really going to have to get creative here with their minutes at the four and five. Expect to see a number of small-ball lineups next to Hassan Whiteside. Besides Whiteside, we might see more from Henry Walker and Michael Beasley.
Feb 28 - 6:40 PM

Greivis Vasquez will start against the Knicks on Saturday.

The last time Kyle Lowry missed a game (Apr. 5, 2014), Greivis Vasquez had 26 points, four boards, four dimes, one steal and six treys in 37 minutes. He should get a huge increase in playing time in a favorable matchup. If you're looking to stream a point guard tonight, look no further.
