Nene (right knee) will not play vs. the Thunder on Monday.

Playing 36 minutes on Friday may have pushed him too hard and he was lousy in Sunday's game, but this is the first we've heard of a knee injury. Get him out of active lineups immediately. He can be cut if there's a promising FA on the wire, but we'd rather wait for an update on the severity of his knee issue. Kevin Seraphin and Emeka Okafor each become more appealing options in Nene's absence.

Al Jefferson (knee) and Mo Williams (knee) are listed as questionable on the lineup sheet for Saturday.

Interesting. There were no indications of either guy missing this game, so we're still expecting them to play. Jefferson is still listed as the probable starter and should be fine. We'll provide another update to confirm Big Al is good to go.

Kevin Martin (hamstring), Anthony Bennett (leg) and Robbie Hummel (hand) are questionable to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

Martin said on Friday that he's hoping for his hamstring to heal by next week, so we still don't like his chances to play. Plus, the Wolves continue to list him as questionable as if they didn't even hear his comments. Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger benefit the most with Budinger serving as a solid add in standard leagues.
Mar 28 - 6:13 PM

Ricky Rubio (ankle) and Kevin Garnett (knee) are doubtful to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

This is pretty much status quo for Rubio, who hasn't played in any of the previous five games and seven of the last eight. He is basically a shut down candidate and is not worth owning in standard leagues. Zach LaVine is a nice player to own if you're fine with sub-par shooting while Lorenzo Brown is also a low-end add for dimes and steals.
Mar 28 - 6:10 PM

Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and Gary Neal (ankle) will not play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

They Wolves continue to rule out Pek the day before games, so it's hard to like his chances of playing in the next week or even this season. Gorgui Dieng is going to continue his run as a must-start player while Justin Hamilton backs him up. Hopefully Hamilton can get more minutes.
Mar 28 - 6:07 PM

Dwyane Wade (knee) is questionable to play against the Pistons on Sunday.

He had his knee drained today and the Heat are hopeful to have him for the final 10 games of the season. Still, if he's not ready, they aren't going to play him at much less than 100 percent. His fantasy owners will have to check back for an update and might want to plan for him not being ready to go. Tyler Johnson and Mario Chalmers would get his minutes while Goran Dragic would run the offense.
Mar 28 - 6:01 PM

Shabazz Napier (hip) is doubtful to play against the Pistons on Sunday.

He may have suffered the injury on earlier in the week because he didn't play on Friday and the team is calling it "right hip pain." If the Heat are going to miss Dwyane Wade (knee, questionable) and Napier, there should be a lot of minutes going to Tyler Johnson and Mario Chalmers.
Mar 28 - 5:45 PM

Dennis Schroder, John Jenkins, Kent Bazemore, Mike Muscala and Elton Brand will start against the Hornets on Saturday.

The only mild surprise is Jenkins starting over Shelvin Mack and Thabo Sefolosha at shooting guard. Sefolosha only played 10.0 minutes per game in his last two, so he's likely still on a minutes limit. Expect Mack to get around 15 minutes at point guard with 10-15 more minutes coming at the shooting guard spot. Bazemore should see see 32-36 minutes and could get double-digit shot attempts with other stats, as well. Muscala could also be a threat for a double-double and is worth a look in daily leagues.
Mar 28 - 5:33 PM

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) could miss 7-10 days due to his ankle sprain.

This isn't a big surprise considering he wasn't in great shape on Friday following his injury. His fantasy owners should consider cutting him with only two more full weeks remaining in the season. Jeff Taylor should get some starts and most of the minutes, but there will be more scoring chances going to Marvin Williams and Gerald Henderson.
Mar 28 - 5:30 PM

Jeff Taylor (ankle) is expected to start against the Hawks on Saturday.

It'll be his third start for the Hornets. In his previous two, Taylor averaged 9.0 points, 2.5 boards 1.0 assists, 0.5 steals and 1.5 treys in 26.5 minutes per game. He will likely be in the mid 20s for minutes again and these stats serve as a fair expectation. Gerald Henderson and Marvin Williams are much better players tonight.
Mar 28 - 5:25 PM

Cody Zeller (shoulder) will not play against the Hawks on Saturday.

He was questionable to play yesterday and apparently is not getting any closer. With Zeller and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) out, Marvin Williams and Gerald Henderson may have a shot at 40 minutes tonight. Expect Lance Stephenson, Mo Williams and Jason Maxiell to also benefit.
Mar 28 - 5:03 PM

Derrick Favors (back) is doubtful to play against the Thunder on Saturday.

He was having a tough time walking on Friday night and he's likely going to miss more games. With Favors almost certainly out, Trevor Booker figures to benefit most and is a good bet for a double-double. Jeremy Evans and Jack Cooley should also get run. Fantasy owners in do-or-die situations can consider cutting Favors.
