An MRI revealed that Pau Gasol is dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.

The good news is that he is probable to play Friday against the Blazers. Gasol was just getting over tendinitis in his knees, so this news also has the potential to be an issue over the course of the season. He has been a durable player before this year and only missed one game in the past two seasons. The 32-year-old power forward does lose some a shred of value with this news, but his owners shouldn't be in panic mode or anything.

Devin Booker (ankle) is a game-time decision to face the Clippers on Thursday.

The Suns are right in the thick of a lottery-ball chase with the Lakers, so they may just hold out their best player. Booker has been dealing with some soreness from a couple weeks, so sitting would be for a legitimate reason. If he's out, Jarell Eddie would be in the rotation while T.J. Warren and plenty of Suns would get more shots.

Ivica Zubac (ankle) went to the locker room in the first quarter on Thursday.

He rolled his ankle after a post-move shot and limped straight to the locker room. Zubac was able to walk to the locker room under his own power, but he was moving slowly. Tarik Black replaced him and would play more if Zubac is out.

Richard Jefferson (knee) has been ruled out for Thursday against the Bulls.

He missed practice on Wednesday and the Cavs will just hold him out. Jefferson plays both forward spots, so there could be more minutes going to J.R. Smith or Iman Shumpert at the three and Channing Frye at the four.
Mar 30 - 6:36 PM

Cristiano Felicio (tailbone) is available to play against the Cavs on Thursday.

He has been expected to play all day and should be back after missing the last three games. The Bulls have missed Felicio on defense and giving up 70 paint points to the 76ers on Friday was a clear sign. If Felicio is a full go, Robin Lopez could lose a couple minutes while Joffrey Lauvergne should lose minutes. Most fantasy owners can ignore this situation.

Robert Covington (right knee) will not make the trip for games on Friday and Sunday as doctors continue to evaluate results of his MRI.

He's already missed one game with his right knee soreness and had an MRI on Wednesday. Considering the 76ers are in the mix for the No. 4 to No. 8 spot in the lottery, they may just hold Covington out to get a longer look at Justin Anderson and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot. Covington's fantasy owners may have to consider dropping him while Anderson makes for a solid pickup the rest of the week.

James Harden (left wrist) said he'll play on Thursday against the Blazers.

He had his shooting wrist wrapped at shootaround and he has been playing through it since Mar. 18 when he took a nasty spill at Denver. "It will get better but if I keep banging on it and keep falling on it then it's going to keep going back too square one," Harden said Thursday morning. "I try to limit banging on it and keeping it away from contact, it's kinda hard because it's my left hand. I do a lot with my left hand." For now, his fantasy owners can plug him in there as he attempts to go for MVP.

Will Barton is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets due to foot soreness.

Barton has seen his minutes drop with Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari healthy, so this new foot issue will give his owners even more incentive to drop him. If Barton sits on Friday, Jamal Murray could get a nice bump in minutes off the bench, but standard-league owners should probably look elsewhere.
Mar 30 - 1:37 PM

Brandon Ingram (knee) will not play on Thursday vs. the Wolves.

While he was listed as questionable, coach Luke Walton made it sound like he didn't have a chance of playing in this one. The Lakers aren't considering shutting him down, so his next chance to play is on Saturday vs. the Clippers. The Lakers will start D'Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Corey Brewer, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac. David Nwaba should get some extended run off the bench with Ingram out.
Mar 30 - 1:16 PM

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said he won't rest any players on Thursday.

This means LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving will be a full go. Iman Shumpert (knee) and Richard Jefferson (knee) will play, while Kyle Korver (foot) is still out . The Cavs do play again on Friday vs. Philly, so a DNP-rest could be coming for James, Love and Irving if they see a lot of minutes tonight.

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said Marcin Gortat "needs to play better."

"Definitely needs to play better but we’ve got some options," Brooks said. Those "options" are Jason Smith, Ian Mahinmi and Markieff Morris, as the Wizards have been playing more small ball and Gortat has seen his minutes fall off since the All-Star break. In fact, he hasn't played in the fourth quarter of four straight games. He's slumping at the worst possible time for fantasy owners and is a drop candidate if there's a hot free agent available.

Chris Paul scored 27 points during a 133-124 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, 13 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

The Clippers just smashed to match a season-high 133 points in this win. Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Paul and J.J. Redick reached the 20-point mark in the same game for the first time ever. CP3 appears to be out of his shooting slump and has now made 5-of-10 from deep in his last two, but there was never really much concern to begin with. Moving forward, the Clippers have a lot going on with playoff seeding, trailing the No. 4 seed Jazz by 1.5 games while holding a slim 1.0 lead over the Thunder. That should allow CP3 to log plenty of minutes in his team's final eight games.
