Latest Headlines

Chris Kaman scored 11 points with six rebounds, two steals and two blocks in Saturday's OT loss to the Wolves, but once again he was invisible in the second half.

In a development that's basically gone unnoticed, Kaman hasn't left the bench in the fourth quarter of the past five games. He's shooting 53 percent from the field and 80 percent from the FT line this year, so his offense hasn't grounded him, and it's possible that Rick Carlisle is concerned about defensive energy, fatigue, or the lingering effects of Kaman's ankle injury. Whatever the cause, the result of his limited playing time has been 12th-round value in nine-cat leagues over the past two weeks.

DeMar DeRozan scored a career-high 42 points and tied a career-best with 11 rebounds in the Raptors' 99-96 win over the Rockets on Monday.

DeRozan hit 14-of-27 shots (2-of-4 3PTs, 12-of-17 FTs) to go with one steal, one block and six turnovers, as his usage was off the charts with Kyle Lowry (back) out. Look for this trend to continue until Lowry returns, and owners that are sensitive to field goal percentage may need to keep a close eye on him in case he gets a bit too trigger happy.

DeMarcus Cousins may not play in remaining road games this season based on some comments from George Karl.

"I said, 'Instead of thinking about shutting it down, let's try to find some days that you can get your body rested.' We might schedule a piece of our games and [rest Cousins] again," coach George Karl said. "It gives me an opportunity to experiment a little bit. At home, I'd like to go in and [let Cousins play] every game. But on the road, I might experiment a little bit more." He's likely out on Wednesday, but the Kings do have three home games from Apr. 3-7. After that, four of their final five games will be on the road. Cousins isn't a must-own player right now, but the prudent move might be to hold him until he gets his three home games and then drop him on Apr. 8.

Ryan Kelly scored 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting (including three treys) with seven rebounds, four assists and four blocks over 43 minutes in Monday's overtime win against the Sixers.

Kelly has been putting up interesting lines for a few games now and though the rug could be pulled out from underneath him he fits the definition of late-season pickup.

Alex Len may have broken his nose on Monday and is getting an X-ray to confirm, according to the Suns broadcast.

He's having some bad luck with injuries. Len's ankle finally healed, but now he could miss time with this issue. Chris Kaman caught Len with an inadvertent elbow and it caused some bleeding. If he's out, Brandan Wright would get a big bump in minutes.
Mar 30 - 11:58 PM

Rudy Gay (concussion) will not play against the Rockets on Wednesday.

Considering he blacked out following the collision, Gay is likely going to be out for at least a week. His fantasy owners can consider dropping him at any depth if they need games played. Meanwhile, Omri Casspi would get the start while Derrick Williams, Ben McLemore, Ray McCallum and Sauce Castillo would benefit.

Zach Randolph suffered a hyperextended elbow and limped a bit on a sore knee in Monday's 97-83 win over the hapless Kings on Monday, but the injuries apparently aren't serious.

Randolph is banged up like the rest of his teammates and they could all use a rest, but they're locked up in a big battle for seeding. We'll let you know if news worsens but owners can keep him in lineups, and he was fine tonight with 15 points, seven boards, three assists and one steal in his 30 minutes.

Dennis Schroder (toe) will not travel for Tuesday's game in Detroit.

Ugh. We were very excited about Schroder's week with the Hawks likely to sit Jeff Teague on Tuesday, but now we might only get six minutes out of him. As it stands right now, we'd consider Shelvin Mack as the favorite to start on Tuesday against the Pistons. He's worth a look at any depth right now.

Dennis Schroder (toe) will not return on Monday and he may have dislocated his toe.

This is a really tough blow to those who picked him up. Considering he's been ruled out and didn't come out to join his teammates on the bench, he might be out for Tuesday. What's more, the Hawks are very likely to sit Jeff Teague in a road game, so Shelvin Mack would likely start on Tuesday. If you're looking for a stream option, give Mack a look at any depth.
Mar 30 - 9:46 PM

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

He sprained his ankle again on Sunday and the Suns will continue to hold him out. Expect Marcus Morris and Archie Goodwin to get most of his minutes. Morris is worth owning in all leagues while Knight isn't a great player to own right now.
Mar 30 - 8:37 PM

Kevin Martin (hamstrings) will not play on Monday night against the Jazz.

He said last week he was hopeful to play this week and maybe he'll give it a go Wednesday at home against the Raptors. Still, Martin isn't worth owning in most leagues with all the uncertainty around him. Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger benefit most.
Mar 30 - 7:19 PM

Nikola Pekovic (ankle) will not play again in the 2014-15 season.

Earlier today we asked why the Wolves haven't ruled him out for the season, so at least there is some certainty in this situation. Pekovic can be dropped in all re-draft leagues. Justin Hamilton will get the start at center tonight.
