Deron Williams has a bruised right wrist and won't play Wednesday against the Bucks.

Williams, who has struggled with his shot, has been dealing with pain in his right wrist all season. It remains to be seen if the Nets are simply giving him a night off after a dismal shooting performance on Christmas Day or if this is the beginning of a prolonged absence. Check back Thursday for more information and owners in daily leagues should get him out of your lineup immediately. C.J. Watson will likely get the start Wednesday night.

The Blazers earned their 12th consecutive win vs. the Lakers on Sunday, led by Damian Lillard's 22 points, four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, five assists and three steals.

Lillard made 7-of-20 FGs and 4-of-7 FTs tonight, but he committed only one turnover in 30 minutes of action. The playing time barely topped C.J. McCollum (13 points, three assists, four turnovers) for a high among Portland's starters, as the lopsided score allowed coach Terry Stotts to lean heavily on his reserves. The Blazers are now in a virtual tie with Denver for the No. 8 seed, and owners can expect Lillard's best during Tuesday's crucial home game vs. the Nuggets -- Lillard said his team has to approach the game "locked-in like never before."

Klay Thompson dropped a game-high 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting on Sunday, going 7-of-11 from deep with two rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 35 minutes.

Klay struggled on Friday with eight points on 3-of-14 shooting, but otherwise he's been on fire -- excluding that dud, he's averaging 27.7 points and 5.3 triples on 57.1 percent shooting over his previous six games. He single-handedly won the 3-point category for plenty of owners this week, making a ridiculous 21 treys.

Andre Iguodala had a hyper-efficient game on Sunday, making 7-of-8 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with two 3-pointers for 20 points, while adding seven rebounds, four assists, two steals, one block and zero turnovers.

Iguodala logged 32 minutes tonight and he's been critical to the Warriors' success since Kevin Durant went down. For what it's worth, Steve Kerr didn't explicitly rule out resting Iguodala over the next week, which includes a back-to-back set vs. the Spurs and Rockets. He has been awesome lately, and owners should simply monitor his status prior to each of Golden State's games.

DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Jazz, according to coach Alvin Gentry.

For what it's worth, Cousins took some shots during halftime on Sunday with a pronounced limp. The Pelicans may not hold a shootaround prior to the second game in a back-to-back set, but owners should check for updates in the afternoon. Dante Cunningham will likely earn another start if Cousins isn't ready to go vs. Utah.

X-rays were negative on Al Jefferson's sprained left ankle, and he was in good spirits after Sunday's game.

"Everything seemed normal so it's just an ankle sprain," Jefferson said. He was in a great deal of pain after the injury and left the court in a wheelchair, however, and the veteran center could easily miss extended time here. If he does get some DNPs, that would open up a few extra minutes for Lavoy Allen, Kevin Seraphin and Rakeem Christmas.

Myles Turner came up huge vs. Philly on Sunday with 17 points (7-of-9 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), 16 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes of action.

Turner is the 16th player in Pacers history to block at least 150 shots in a season, and swats have been a bedrock for his fantasy value this season. He's also picked up the pace scoring-wise with 18.5 points on 16-of-25 shooting in his past two games, giving the Pacers some much-needed versatility on offense. Turner has been an absolute steal relative to his Average Draft Position.

Shawn Long came off the bench on Sunday for 15 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes during a road loss in Indiana.

Jahlil Okafor can't shake his right knee soreness and Philly has zero incentive to rush him back, so Long could become a staple of the rotation. He's now averaging 15.3 points and 7.7 rebounds in Philly's past three games. The team liked him enough to give him a multi-year contract, and fantasy owners should give him a look while Okafor is on the shelf.
Mar 26 - 9:12 PM

Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

X-rays were negative and coach Quin Snyder said that Hayward was "fine" after the injury occurred on Saturday, but Hayward did ask to check out of the game. Utah holds a slim one-game lead over the Clippers for the No. 4 seed, so Hayward will do everything he can to stay on the court, but owners should check for updates following shootaround.
Mar 26 - 8:48 PM

Russell Westbrook notched his 36th triple-double of the season during Sunday's loss to the Rockets, racking up 39 points, 13 assists, 11 rebounds, three 3-pointers and five turnovers in 39 minutes.

As per usual, Westbrook was extremely aggressive at getting to the line, going 10-of-16 from the charity stripe while connecting on 13 of his 24 shot attempts for a 62.8 true shooting percentage. Westbrook now needs just six more triple-doubles to surpass Oscar Robertson's single-season record, a feat that seems highly attainable with 10 more games on the schedule for OKC.
Mar 26 - 7:29 PM

Chris Paul missed a potential game-winner vs. the Kings on Sunday, but he still finished with 17 points (4-of-9 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), nine assists, four rebounds, three 3-pointer, one steal and one block.

The Clippers came in half a game behind Utah for the No. 4 seed and homecourt advantage in the first round, but they blew a huge lead for an inexplicable loss at home today. The good news is that the tight race should encourage Doc Rivers to play his key veterans heavy minutes down the stretch, reducing the likelihood of DNP-CDs.
Mar 26 - 7:12 PM

Willie Cauley-Stein hit a game-winning layup with 1.8 seconds remaining on Sunday, finishing with eight points, a season-high 14 rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 33 minutes of action.

Sacramento snapped a four-game losing streak in dramatic fashion, as WCS corralled a miss to give his team the late lead -- Chris Paul subsequently missed a jumper that could have won it, and the Kings went home with a truly shocking road win. Cauley-Stein is rolling along with top-75 roto value over the past few weeks.
