Latest Headlines

Marvin Williams (concussion) is listed in the starting lineup against the Magic on Wednesday and will play.

He has officially been cleared. He was a game-time decision and went down with the injury last Wednesday. Marvin should have increased opportunity tonight with Derrick Favors out of the lineup, so owners in most leagues might want to keep an eye on him.

LeBron James racked up 37 points, four 3-pointers, eight rebounds, four assists, three steals and three blocks on Sunday, but he shot 15-of-35 from the field and 3-of-11 at the free throw line in an overtime loss.

LeBron became the first player since Truck Robinson in 1978 to score 37+ points while shooting under 30.0 percent on 10 or more free throw attempts. He was in disbelief after numerous misses in the clutch and took responsibility for the loss afterward, though fantasy owners will assuredly forgive the flaws in this statistical bonanza.

C.J. Miles is starting the second half against the 76ers in place of Damjan Rudez.

Mar 1 - 7:34 PM

Tristan Thompson erupted in 37 minutes during Sunday's OT loss, which he finished with 14 points, a season-high 19 rebounds, two steals and one block.

This was Thompson's first double-double in over a month and the defensive stats are atypical, but he continues to carve out borderline value in 9-cat leagues. He's playing more minutes than starting center Timofey Mozgov most nights and is worth scooping off the waiver wire if you're targeting rebounds and FG percentage.

Randy Foye will move into the Nuggets' starting lineup on Sunday, sending Gary Harris to the bench.

Brian Shaw is shaking up his starting lineup by deploying Foye, Wilson Chandler and Kenneth Faried ahead of Harris, Joffrey Lauvergne and J.J. Hickson. Chaos reigns in Denver and Foye's starting job may be short-lived, but he's worth a speculative pickup in deep leagues in case it sticks.

Kenneth Faried and Wilson Chandler will start Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans, sending J.J. Hickson and Joffrey Lauvergne back to the bench.

Faried has been a huge disappointment this season, and it's only gotten worse after the All-Star break with averages of 6.5 points and 6.3 boards in just over 21 minutes in his last four outings. It's a bold move from head coach Brain Shaw as Faried rarely plays center, but he simply has too much talent to not bounce back eventually. We will let you know how the Manimal does after the game. J.J. Hickson and Joffrey Lauvergne can be cut in most leagues following this news.
Mar 1 - 6:54 PM

James Harden kept up his torrid pace during Sunday's thrilling overtime win over the Cavs, notching 33 points (8-of-18 from the field, 15-of-18 from the line), eight rebounds, five assists, three steals, two blocks and five turnovers.

This was Harden's NBA-leading 26th game with more than 30 points, and this performance will certainly help his case for MVP-honors. Harden also logged 42 minutes tonight, which would suggest that his ankle injury is no longer an issue. He's averaging 22.6 points, 8.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.6 three-pointers, since the All-Star break, while shooting 84.2 percent from the charity stripe on 11.4 attempts per game. Simply put, he’s a beast.

JaVale McGee denied knowing about buyout talks with the 76ers, and sources now consider a buyout "unlikely."

"Not on my part, it’s not true," McGee said, referring to a report that he was in "active talks" with Philly. "I don’t know. They might be talking to somebody. I know nothing about it." A buyout would have to be completed by midnight for another team to acquire him for the playoffs, so the clock is ticking.
Mar 1 - 6:50 PM

Jusuf Nurkic (ankle) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Sunday as expected.

He is expected to be "out a while" according to head coach Brain Shaw, but his owners should at least entertain the idea of holding onto him if they have an IR spot, or at least until we get a firm timetable. Joffrey Lauvergene has been playing well for the Nuggets and is worth a look in deeper leagues, while J.J. Hickson might be able to finally make some noise as well.
Mar 1 - 6:46 PM

Pau Gasol was cleared limited by his illness during Sunday's loss to the Clippers, scoring just four points on 2-of-13 shooting, to go with 15 rebounds and four assists through 33 minutes of action.

Tom Thibodeau acknowledged after the game that Gasol is still very sick, and he gave him credit for going out there and giving it everything he had. The Bulls don't play again until Tuesday, so hopefully that gives him enough time to fully recover from his illness. If Jimmy Butler (elbow) is unable to go on Tuesday, Gasol is going to be busy on offense.
Mar 1 - 6:10 PM

Nikola Mirotic was fantastic on Sunday, scoring a career-high 29 points on 11-of-23 shooting, to go with nine rebounds, two 3-pointers, one block, and two turnovers through 31 minutes of action.

Taj Gibson (ankle) was seen leaving the arena in a walking boot, so it looks like Mirotic is going to get some additional time to produce for Chicago with Derrick Rose (knee) out, and Jimmy Butler's (elbow) status up in the air for Tuesday. What makes Mirotic's line even more impressive is that he was the only Bull to score a field goal during the entire fourth quarter, and he's well worth a look in standard leagues.
Mar 1 - 5:54 PM

Nerlens Noel (sore quad and calf) is in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Pacers.

Noel is coming into this game with averages of 10.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks per game over the month of February. Go ahead and get him active.
