Latest Headlines

Malcolm Lee (groin) returned to practice on Monday.

With Lee back in the fold, Alexey Shved, J.J. Barea and Luke Ridnour will all likely see a small drop in playing time. However, Lee is not relevant in standard leagues.

Michael Beasley will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Cavs, with Khris Middleton (rest) unavailable.

This was the expected move, and Beasley could be flirting with minutes in the 30s tonight. He's been scoring very efficiently lately, so he could be worth a look as a streamer, although with a tough matchup in what will likely be a down-tempo game he isn't the best DFS target.

Deron Williams will not be available for Monday's game against the Bucks.

Head coach Tyronn Lue is hopeful to have Williams available for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, but he will not be able to make his Cavs' debut tonight. Williams lost a ton of value with the move to Cleveland, so owners in most leagues should probably just move on and send him to the wire.

Kevin Durant (hand) will play Monday vs. the 76ers.

Durant was probably heading into this one, so no surprises here. With Durant back in action, Patrick McCaw will return to the bench, and guys like Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson will sacrifice some touches on offense. Additionally, head coach Steve Kerr said that he will not be resting any of his guys for Monday's game against the 76ers or Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.
Feb 27 - 5:45 PM

Avery Bradley will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup against Atlanta, sending Jaylen Brown back to the bench.

Bradley has missed the past 23 games for the Celtics, and he'll be working with a 15-20 minutes limit for the rest of the week, so he's definitely not a "must-start" kind of guy in his first game back. Still, this is very encouraging, and he should be fully up to speed once the fantasy playoffs kickoff. As for Brown, his value will take a pretty substantial hit with Bradley back in action, as will Marcus Smart. Isaiah Thomas' usage will also dip once Bradley is fully up to speed.
Feb 27 - 5:44 PM

Richard Jefferson will replace Channing Frye in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Milwaukee.

Head coach Tyronn Lue described this move as a matchup-based decision, as he'd like Frye to spend more time guarding Monroe in the second-unit, and he feels Jefferson will match up better with Michael Beasley. The move makes sense, but there won't be any major fantasy implications here, as Jefferson tends to be irrelevant regardless of how he enters the game.
Feb 27 - 5:32 PM

Kyle Korver (knee) will play Monday vs. the Bucks.

Korver looked fine when going through shootaround, and there's been no discussion of a minutes limit, so his owners can feel free to fire him up for a favorable matchup against Milwaukee.
Feb 27 - 5:29 PM

LeBron James (illness) will play Monday vs. the Bucks.

James will be returning from a one-game absence, and head coach Tyronn Lue is opting to go with a small ball lineup featuring Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert, James, Richard Jefferson and Tristan Thompson, with Channing Frye coming off the bench. James put up 29 points with a full stat line in his last matchup with the Bucks, so make sure you have him active.
Feb 27 - 5:27 PM

Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Raptors, although he's expected to play Wednesday vs. the Magic.

This will be Porzingis' second straight game on the sidelines, but it seems like a pretty minor issue with the Knicks expecting him back on Tuesday. Joakim Noah (knee) is also out tonight, so we should see plenty of Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn, with Hernangomez being the more attractive fantasy target. Lance Thomas and Mindaugus Kuzminskas could also see some more minutes, but that doesn't mean all that much.
Feb 27 - 5:25 PM

Kenneth Faried (back) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Bulls.

Faried getting ruled out a full 24 hours in advance of the tip-off is slightly concerning, although that could have something to do with the fact that Tuesday's game will be the first of a back-to-back set. Wilson Chandler got the start in his place on Sunday, so he'll likely be looking at another start on Tuesday night. For now, we'll consider Faried questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.
Feb 27 - 3:12 PM

Joakim Noah underwent successful arthroscopic left knee surgery on Monday, and he will be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks.

Noah's New York homecoming has been nothing short of disastrous, and it only gets worse when you realize Phil Jackson signed this man to a four-year deal worth $72 million during the offseason. The initial report speculated that Noah could miss the rest of the season after this procedure, so the only positive here is that he'll be re-evaluated in 3-4 weeks. Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn will be manning the five spot moving forward, and both those guys look like quality speculative adds, with Hernangomez offering the most upside. Noah can be cut everywhere.
Feb 27 - 3:11 PM

Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) is unlikely to play on Monday vs. the Raptors according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

He's day-to-day, so maybe we will see him back on Mar. 1 vs. the Magic. With Joakim Noah (knee surgery) likely out for the season, KP may spend more time at center down the stretch. Willy Hernangomez looks like a great option in all formats Monday, while Lance Thomas will likely start next to Carmelo Anthony if KP can't go. Thomas played 37 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday, scoring 11 points with six rebounds, two assists and one triple. To be clear, Thomas' ceiling is low.
