Kevin Love (illness) returned to practice on Monday.

He's feeling better, so that means Love should be locked and loaded into your lineup.

Jeremy Lin continued his impressive play in a loss to the Thunder on Sunday, scoring 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting with eight assists, six boards, three steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

Distant memories of Linsanity are slowly starting to surface, as Lin has been a new man since the All-Star break, averaging 17.0 points, 5.0 assists, 2.8 boards, 1.2 steals and 0.8 3-pointers in 27.8 minutes per game. While it is highly unlikely that he takes over as the starting PG with rookie Jordan Clarkson playing well, Lin has been playing a lot of minutes at shooting guard which is huge for his value moving forward. Don't look now, but Lin is worth a flier in most leagues to see if he can keep up his torrid pace.

Andrew Bogut scored only two points on 1-of-6 shooting during Sunday's massive comeback, but he added 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in just 19 minutes.

He was scheduled to miss tonight's game as a precaution but Festus Ezeli's suspension forced him into the starting lineup. The Warriors are back in action vs. the Nets on Monday and owners should be on red-alert for a rest day from Bogut.

With Russell Westbrook (face) unavailable, D.J. Augustin started for the Thunder on Sunday and notched 18 points, four 3-pointers, nine rebounds, five assists and one steal.

Westbrook isn't expected to be out long and OKC doesn't play again until Wednesday, so this may be Augustin's only fill-in start. He shot 6-of-15 from the field in 41 minutes and would resume must-own fantasy status if Westbrook ever suffered a long-term injury, so don't lose sight of him in the coming weeks.
Mar 1 - 10:10 PM

Jordan Hill logged a double-double in a 101-108 loss to the Thunder on Sunday, scoring 14 points with 12 boards, two assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

It was actually his first made 3-pointer of his career (he was 0-of-12 prior to tonight's game), but his owners shouldn't expect to see that happen again anytime soon. Since returning from a hip injury that cost him five games on the sidelines, Hill has averaged 13.2 points, 7.8 boards, 1.4 assists and 0.8 blocks per game, and it's clear that the All-Star break did wonders for his tired legs. If you need a big man, Hill is more than worth a look, especially as his minutes start to ramp up again.

Jae Crowder reeled in a career-high 17 rebounds in 27 minutes off the bench on Sunday, adding nine points, one 3-pointer, two assists and one block.

His previous season-high was seven boards and this was obviously a fluke, but his season-high 17 shot attempts are the culmination of a trend -- he's taken double-digit shots in six straight games. Crowder is a sneaky late-round value in 9-cat leagues where his 0.6 turnovers give him a sizeable boost.
Mar 1 - 9:47 PM

Roy Hibbert racked up 14 points, 15 rebounds, two steals and five blocks in Sunday's easy win vs. the 76ers.

Philly's frontcourt didn't pose much of a challenge for Hibbert, who recorded his first double-double since Feb. 4. He's averaging 22 minutes per game over his past six contests and he's been a borderline 12-team option over the past month, in part because he's shooting 41.8 percent during that span.
Mar 1 - 9:46 PM

Ish Smith took over at PG to start the second half vs. Indiana on Sunday, posting 11 points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds and five assists in the Sixers' loss.

Smith is a career 38.6 percent shooter and fantasy owners should be extremely wary of his 47.4 percent free throw shooting this season. He's a decent speculative add for deep-league owners seeking a point guard, but his starting job isn't guaranteed and we wouldn't cut anyone of value to get him.
Mar 1 - 9:27 PM

Andre Miller logged his first double-double of the season in a 110-99 loss to the Blazers on Sunday, scoring 12 points with 10 assists, two boards and two steals in 26 minutes.

Fellow point guard Ray McCallum had 12 points with five assists and two boards in 25 minutes, and it looks like head coach George Karl is going to stick with his plan of splitting their minutes. Darren Collison is likely done for the season because of his hip injury, so both Miller and McCallum are worth a look in deeper leagues. Just don't expect Miller to be this good on a regular basis considering he is a little ways past his prime.
Mar 1 - 9:14 PM

Damian Lillard scored a game-high 31 points in a win over the Kings on Sunday, adding seven assists, four boards, one block and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

This was actually Lillard's highest scoring game since he dropped 34 points against the Lakers on Jan. 11, and he has now attempted 20 or more shots in each of his last two games. As one of the league's most durable and consistent guards, he should be a top-10 fantasy asset for the rest of the way.
Mar 1 - 8:48 PM

LaMarcus Aldridge scored 26 points with 15 boards and two assists in Sunday's 110-99 win over the Kings.

He did go just 9-of-25 from the field and missed all three of his attempts from beyond the arc, but his owners won't be complaining about this line. Aldridge is coming off a 29-point, 16-board performance vs. the Thunder on Friday, and he is going to continue to be a beast as long his troublesome thumbs don't cause him any problems.
Mar 1 - 8:35 PM

Stephen Curry scored a game-high 37 points to help the Warriors erase a 26-point deficit and steal a win in Boston on Sunday, tying the largest comeback in the NBA this season.

He went 14-of-22 from the field with five 3-pointers, and offset his five turnovers with four rebounds, five assists and one steal. He's been flirting with No. 1 fantasy status all season thanks to ridiculous games like this, and tonight's victory improved the Warriors' league-best record to 46-11.
