David Lee secured his third career triple-double in Friday's win over the Bobcats, scoring 23 points on 11-of-16 shooting with 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

Lee has been a top-7 fantasy play over the past two weeks and a top-15 play on the year as the Warriors have jumped all over a cupcake schedule to start the season. Their next 16 opponents have won about 60 percent of their games, and Lee's defense is still among league's worst at his position. We doubt his numbers fall below an early round level, but owners may want to test the waters and see if they can get a top-20 player in return.

Dwight Howard was ejected from Monday's game vs. the Celtics.

He got his second technical foul for hanging on the rim after a dunk. Howard will finish with 17 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 27 minutes. The Hawks will likely have to go small with Paul Millsap at center the rest of the night.

General manager Bryan Colangelo said the 76ers are hopeful Joel Embiid (knee) will return this season, according to the 76ers broadcast.

On the other hand, the team has made it very clear health and long-term performance is the top priority for their players. Basically, it sounds like a 50/50 shot we see Embiid out there again in 2016-17. As has been the case since January, the 76ers do not want to see any swelling or soreness on Embiid. He still had both on Monday and there hasn't been much improvement outside of him doing some light shooting. Richaun Holmes and Jahlil Okafor are both making strong case to be added in standard leagues. Robert Covington and The Homie Dario Saric have been huge winners, too.

Michael Beasley suffered a left knee sprain on Monday vs. the Cavs and will not return.

The Bucks initially called Jabari Parker's injury a knee sprain, so Beasley isn't out of the woods yet and will likely have additional tests. He was in obvious pain and could only put a little bit of weight on his leg as his teammates helped him back to the locker room. He finished with 11 points in nine minutes. Mirza Teletovic will get a short-term boost with Khris Middleton resting tonight.

Michael Beasley injured his left knee on Monday vs. the Cavaliers and went back to the locker room.

It didn't look good at all and his teammates had to carry him to the locker room. The Bucks will have an update shortly, but we'd be surprised if his night wasn't done. Khris Middleton is being rested, so we could see more of Mirza Teletovic and Tony Snell tonight.
Feb 27 - 7:53 PM

Updating a previous report, Thon Maker started over John Henson on Monday vs. the Cavaliers.

Henson was listed as the official starter, but this isn't the first time the Bucks have listed the wrong starting lineup. Maker is prone to foul trouble and isn't a great fantasy option until he gets consistent minutes above 20 -- he's averaging 16.7 minutes per game as a starter.
Feb 27 - 7:20 PM

Deron Williams will not be available for Monday's game against the Bucks.

Head coach Tyronn Lue is hopeful to have Williams available for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, but he will not be able to make his Cavs' debut tonight. Williams lost a ton of value with the move to Cleveland, so owners in most leagues should probably just move on and send him to the wire.
Feb 27 - 6:00 PM

Kevin Durant (hand) will play Monday vs. the 76ers.

Durant was probably heading into this one, so no surprises here. With Durant back in action, Patrick McCaw will return to the bench, and guys like Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson will sacrifice some touches on offense. Additionally, head coach Steve Kerr said that he will not be resting any of his guys for Monday's game against the 76ers or Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.
Feb 27 - 5:45 PM

Avery Bradley will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup against Atlanta, sending Jaylen Brown back to the bench.

Bradley has missed the past 23 games for the Celtics, and he'll be working with a 15-20 minutes limit for the rest of the week, so he's definitely not a "must-start" kind of guy in his first game back. Still, this is very encouraging, and he should be fully up to speed once the fantasy playoffs kickoff. As for Brown, his value will take a pretty substantial hit with Bradley back in action, as will Marcus Smart. Isaiah Thomas' usage will also dip once Bradley is fully up to speed.
Feb 27 - 5:44 PM

Richard Jefferson will replace Channing Frye in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Milwaukee.

Head coach Tyronn Lue described this move as a matchup-based decision, as he'd like Frye to spend more time guarding Monroe in the second-unit, and he feels Jefferson will match up better with Michael Beasley. The move makes sense, but there won't be any major fantasy implications here, as Jefferson tends to be irrelevant regardless of how he enters the game.
Feb 27 - 5:32 PM

Kyle Korver (knee) will play Monday vs. the Bucks.

Korver looked fine when going through shootaround, and there's been no discussion of a minutes limit, so his owners can feel free to fire him up for a favorable matchup against Milwaukee.
Feb 27 - 5:29 PM

LeBron James (illness) will play Monday vs. the Bucks.

James will be returning from a one-game absence, and head coach Tyronn Lue is opting to go with a small ball lineup featuring Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert, James, Richard Jefferson and Tristan Thompson, with Channing Frye coming off the bench. James put up 29 points with a full stat line in his last matchup with the Bucks, so make sure you have him active.
