Updating a previous report, Kevin Love (illness) is a game-time decision, and Andrei Kirilenko (back) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Bucks.

We questioned the earlier report that Love had been ruled out, simply because there is enough time for his health to improve before tonight's game. In any case, he's a game-time decision and will play if he feels well enough. If he's out, look for Derrick Williams to see a big role tonight, along with Josh Howard, who should start again for Kirilenko, who will miss his second straight game with back spasms.

Chris Paul was magnificent against the 76ers during a 119-98 win on Friday with 25 points, three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three 3-pointers on 9-of-15 from the field in just 30 minutes.

It was all just too easy for CP3 with 19 points coming in the first half. Paul's offensive game is clicking at the right time, averaging 23.8 points, 4.4 boards, 12.0 dimes, 2.2 steals and 1.8 treys on 55.6 percent from the field and 88.9 percent from the line in his last five. If CP3 keeps this up, he'll likely be on a lot of fantasy championship teams.

Nerlens Noel scored a career-high 30 points on 12-of-17 from the field against the Clippers during 119-98 loss on Friday, adding 14 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 39 minutes.

His offensive game has soared to new heights and he continues to excel around the basket. In his last nine games, Noel averaged 16.9 points, 10.0 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.4 blocks on 57.5 percent from the field and 71.4 percent from the line. Andrew Wiggins was lapping the field for Rookie of the Year at the break, but Noel may have caught him in the past two weeks. He's truly awesome for his fantasy owners right now.

Mo Williams (sore knee) hit just 8-of-26 shots but everything else was golden on the stat sheet in Friday's double-overtime loss, finishing with 26 points, four treys, nine boards, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and a 6-of-7 mark from the foul line.

Williams' injuries are both risky and sometimes overplayed in the media, making it hard to know which ones to worry about or not. If he somehow got dropped go and pick him up.

Monta Ellis was kneed in the right calf and coach Rick Carlisle said he doesn't know what the extent of the injury is.

"We'll see how he feels in the morning and go from there," Carlisle said. It sounds like he's dealing with a leg contusion, which has occurred an inordinate amount of times this season. Ellis is one of the toughest dudes in the NBA, so he might not need to miss time. If he does, it'll be Devin Harris, Richard Jefferson and Chandler Parsons filling in the most for Monta.

Derrick Favors is dealing with back spasms and will not return on Friday.

He hasn't had any back issues since the 2013-14 season, but that issue did cost him some time. Favors finished with seven points, five boards, one assist and two blocks in 19 minutes. If he needs to miss time, Trevor Booker will get the biggest increase in playing time. He's worth a speculative add in deep leagues.
Mar 27 - 11:06 PM

Reggie Jackson triple-doubled in Friday's road win over the Magic, scoring 26 points on 9-of-19 shooting (1-of-2 3PTs, 7-of-9 FTs) with 11 rebounds, 10 assists and one steal.

Jackson becomes the first Pistons player since Grant Hill to have multiple triple-doubles in a season and he's turning it on at the right time for owners. He has been a top-20 play over the last week.
Mar 27 - 11:02 PM

Andre Iguodala will be rested on Saturday night in Milwaukee.

Coach Steve Kerr said others will have their minutes limited, so there's a chance there could be other DNPs on the horizon. Iguodala had a bad game in a win on Friday, making 1-of-11 from the field for three points with six boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer. It'll be Harrison Barnes, Shaun Livingston and Justin Holiday stepping up.
Mar 27 - 10:35 PM

Dwyane Wade said he will have his right knee drained on Saturday.

The Heat will host the Pistons on Sunday and Wade should be considered questionable for that game. If he does miss time, it will likely be Mario Chalmers getting the start with Tyler Johnson and Goran Dragic also stepping up. Wade didn't play well on Friday with 13 points, no rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes.
Mar 27 - 10:25 PM

Monta Ellis suffered a right leg injury on Friday night and will not return.

He was getting looked at on the bench before going to the locker room. It's unknown what the extent of the injury is for Monta, but he's usually very durable and this is a little bit of a surprise to see he's unlikely to return. He may be re-evaluated on Saturday. Ellis left the game with 10 points, two boards, one assist and one steal. With Monta out, expect Devin Harris and Chandler Parsons to step up. There's also been a Raymond Felton sighting tonight.
Mar 27 - 10:19 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Blazers on Friday night.

He and warming up don't get along. Tonight is the second game in a row in which he warmed up and couldn't play. With Knight out, it'll be Marcus Morris and Archie Goodwin getting most of the playing time.
Mar 27 - 9:44 PM

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a left ankle sprain on Friday and will not return.

He was able to limp to the locker room under his own power, but he was moving slowly. At this point, he's likely going to be out for the rest of the game. With Kidd-Gilchrist and Cody Zeller (shoulder) out, Jason Maxiell, Marvin Williams and Gerald Henderson will step up. MKG exited with 11 points, eight boards and one block.
