Marvin Williams (concussion) and Derrick Favors (plantar fasciitis) are both doubtful to play on Wednesday.

DeMarre Carroll will likely start in Williams' place once again, but from a fantasy perspective, it's guys like Randy Foye and Gordon Hayward who will be tasked with more responsibilities on the offensive end. With Favors out again, Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson will play heavy minutes, with Enes Kanter and Jeremy Evans also picking up some extra time.

The 76ers have agreed to waive JaVale McGee in time for him to sign with a playoff contender, according to USA Today's Sam Amick.

Philadelphia will reportedly pay McGee the full amount he's owed, including a $12 million payout next season, and he's likely to sign a minimum deal to give a playoff-bound team more frontcourt depth. He's not a fantasy asset no matter where he lands after clearing waivers.

Kenneth Faried started at center in the Nuggets' small lineup on Sunday, but he made only 1-of-6 shots to finish with three points, six boards, three assists, one steal and one block.

Faried logged 27 minutes and may have played more if it weren't for foul trouble. The starting job and increased playing time are both silver linings for exasperated fantasy owners, and for now it seems likely that he'll stick at center for Tuesday's game vs. Milwaukee.

Randy Foye made his first start of the season on Sunday, finishing with 19 points, five 3-pointers and two steals as the Nuggets lost their sixth consecutive game.

Foye is shooting 30.5 percent from the field this season and his lack of supporting stats makes him primarily a 3-point specialist. To wit, he finished tonight's game without any rebounds, assists or blocks in 30 minutes. He's worth a speculative add in most leagues, however, in the hopes that he can hold down a big offensive role as a starter ahead of Gary Harris.

Will Barton came off Denver's bench for 16 points and a season-high 10 rebounds in Sunday's home loss, adding two steals without any turnovers in 27 minutes.

The Nuggets are going nowhere this season but at least Barton is proving to be a solid acquisition, averaging 18.8 points, 1.3 triples, 6.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in his last four games. How long he can keep it up is anyone's guess, but he's earning his minutes and makes for a nice speculative addition in standard leagues.

According to head coach Erik Spoelstra, Goran Dragic is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Suns after he dealt with back spasms during Saturday's game vs. the Hawks.

"He got hit in the back and that's why he was in the locker room," Spoelstra said. "He probably shouldn't have played in the second half. He just played through it. I kept on asking him if he was OK and he said he was... He gutted it out." Dragic will likely do everything in his power to be ready in time to face his former team, and we should be able to provide another update after the Heat's shootaround on Monday morning. If Dragic can't play, Mario Chalmers will be the primary beneficiary, while Shabazz Napier would likely see an uptick in minutes off the bench.

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.
Mar 1 - 10:19 PM

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.
Mar 1 - 10:15 PM

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.
Mar 1 - 10:02 PM

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.
