Kawhi Leonard (quad) returned to action after an 18-game absence on Friday, scoring eight points on 3-of-7 shooting (including a three) with two rebounds, one assist, two steals, and one block in 20 minutes.

Leonard looked great and all reports were extraordinarily positive about his health, as the Spurs look like they really played this situation safe. He wasted no time putting up big peripheral numbers in limited minutes, and he should be owned in all 8- and 9-cat formats.

Kelly Oubre was superb off the bench against the Cavs on Saturday, making 7-of-8 from the field for 16 points with seven rebounds, one steal and no turnovers in 26 minutes.

It was a fantastic showing for Oubre, who went up against LeBron James throughout this game. You could say this was his best game of the season with terrific play on offense, defense and especially in transition. If Bojan Bogdanovic (back) misses more time, maybe Oubre is worth a look in deep leagues. Most owners can leave him on the wire.

LeBron James (eye) scored 24 points during a 127-115 loss to the Wizards on Saturday, adding 11 rebounds, eight assists, one block and three turnovers in 41 minutes.

He had some goggles on to start the game, but he ditched them in the first quarter after he missed a 3-pointer. After this loss, the Cavs are now just 0.5 games ahead of the Celtics in the standings. A big reason why has been their defense, giving up a league-worst 115.0 defensive rating in their last 14 games. LeBron's fantasy owners can few this as a positive because he's less likely to be rested late.

Tony Parker returned to action in the third quarter.

He looks to be just fine. The Knicks had a big run after Parker checked out, so that may have been a factor for his return.

Tony Parker (head) went to the locker room in the third quarter on Saturday.

He was on a drive and lowered his head to collided into Willy Hernangomez's left hip. Parker was able to walk to the bench under his own power, but he went straight to the locker room. With the Spurs up 20 at the time of the injury, Parker may be done for the night. He's likely being evaluated for a concussion.

DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is questionable to play against the Nuggets on Sunday.

This may have been sustained late in the game when he had some contact with Ryan Anderson. Cousins did finish the game and played the entire fourth quarter. We should have an update at shootaround, but there's a decent chance Boogie can give it a go. If not, Dante Cunningham and Solomon Hill should benefit. Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis would do the heavy lifting, of course.

Marc Gasol (left foot strain) is questionable for Sunday against the Warriors.

The good news is that this isn't the same foot that needed surgery last season. For what it's worth foot strain is typically not as worrisome as a sprain, but of course every injury is different. Gasol has played a whopping 37.6 minutes per game over his last five games and the Grizzlies may slightly dial him back even if he's OK. If he can't go, we'll see a lot more Brandan Wright with some added Zach Randolph and JaMychal Green.
Mar 25 - 9:12 PM

Derrick Rose, Courtney Lee, Mindaugas Kuzminskas, Kristaps Porzingis and Willy Hernangomez will start against the Spurs on Saturday.

It sounds like Rose should be fine, but we'll see how long the he lasts in what is shaping up to be a blowout.
Mar 25 - 8:26 PM

Cory Joseph, DeMar DeRozan, P.J. Tucker, Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas will start against the Mavs on Saturday.

Ibaka is back from his one-game suspension and should see plenty of minutes against the slower Mavs team. Tucker will also remain in the starting lineup with DeMarre Carroll (back) out, but we'll see a lot of Norman Powell off the bench.
Mar 25 - 8:21 PM

Coach Rick Carlisle said the Mavs are in "experimental mode" with Nerlens Noel as a starting center.

In addition to Carlisle saying the Mavs "need" to look at Seth Curry as a PG, he added he wants to see how Curry and Noel go together. Noel did have a strong game on Thursday, so he should be getting some good run as the Mavs figure out where he is as a roll man with a 3-pointers guy. He should be starting in all formats tonight.
Mar 25 - 7:11 PM

Derrick Rose (foot) is available to play against the Spurs on Saturday.

The "available to play" tag can be a little worrisome, especially when it's on a tanking team and for Derrick Rose. Rose has also said he doesn't care too much about free agency because he saved his money, so that's a whole different story. There are a lot of red flags on Rose, so most owners may just want to steer clear. Ron Baker and Chasson Randle will lose playing time, assuming Rose is a full go.

Jamal Crawford got hot late to help get a win on Saturday, finishing with a season-high 28 points against the Jazz.

He scored 17 points in the fourth quarter to earn a huge win against a team they're battling with for playoff positioning. Crawford was very efficient in this game, making 8-of-12 from the field, all nine free throws and three treys to go with two boards, three dimes and two steals in just 25 minutes. Terrific game aside, he's not really a fantasy option after he caps his five-game week on Sunday night at home against the Kings.
