Latest Headlines

New Bucks coach Jim Boylan will insert Ersan Ilyasova into his starting lineup immediately.

Despite a brand new $40 million contract, Ilyasova was buried deep in Scott Skiles' doghouse, playing just 22.8 minutes per game. Boylan is about to change that. "He is a vital part of our success," Boylan said. "We need him feeling good about his game, playing well, being productive. So that's step one for us right now." If Ilyasova was dropped in your league, he needs to be picked up immediately. We can safely project at least 30 minutes nightly for the versatile power forward. A return to last year's 14.2 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.0 3-pointers per game as a starter are very possible. Ekpe Udoh has lost his starting job.

Blake Griffin (elbow) could return against the Warriors on Sunday.

Mar 2 - 6:49 PM

Goran Dragic (back) is going to start against the Suns on Monday.

If you're into revenge games, this might be your Super Bowl. Dragic should get minutes in the mid 30s tonight and is a must-start in standard leagues. He and Dwyane Wade haven't played too well together, but that's to be expected for two ball-dominant guys. Start the Dragon.
Mar 2 - 6:45 PM

James Harden will be suspended for Tuesday's game against the Hawks for kicking LeBron James in the groin on Sunday.

We'll finally get to see just how valuable Harden really is. He's having one of the best seasons for stats in recent memory, so his fantasy owners should still start him with three games. With Harden out, there should be many more minutes for Corey Brewer and coach Kevin McHale may kick the tires on K.J. McDaniels. The violation is attached in the link below.

Matt Barnes (hamstring) is unlikely to play on Monday against the Wolves.

The Clippers are going to have to get creative here with Barnes out. We can expect to see a lot of small-ball lineups with J.J. Redick and Jamal Crawford on the wings. Plus, we will also see more of Austin Rivers while Jordan Hamilton could get some action.
Mar 2 - 6:33 PM

Coach Steve Kerr said he wants to play Andrew Bogut on Monday against the Nets.

This is a surprise. On Saturday, Kerr said he would like to rest Bogut on Sunday, but Festus Ezeli being suspended forced his hand to play him. Therefore, one would think he would sit out tonight with Ezeli back. All that said, Bogut is still extremely risky to play tonight and not the strongest start in weekly leagues.
Mar 2 - 6:20 PM

Steve Kerr said he would like to get Draymond Green some rest after playing 44 minutes on Sunday, but added tonight's matchup probably won't allow it.

In other words, it looks like Green will play, but it might only be 30-33 minutes. To be clear it's all a guessing game right now, but owners in standard leagues should start Green as of right now. If you're in DFS, steering clear of Dray makes the most sense.
Mar 2 - 6:15 PM

Brandon Knight (hip) will start against the Heat on Monday.

He is going to wear a pad on his hip to help protect the hip pointer injury suffered on Saturday. Knight hasn't quite hit his stride with his new team, but he's getting a lot of shots and even played 48 minutes in an overtime game against OKC last week. He's a must start player while this news doesn't necessarily hurt Eric Bledsoe because he's played well next to Knight. Gerald Green should be benched or even cut.
Mar 2 - 6:10 PM

Goran Dragic is a game-time decision against the Suns on Monday.

One would think he would at least try to play against a team with a front office he doesn't trust. Dragic has played well with the Heat, averaging 13.8 points, 3.0 boards, 5.4 dimes, 1.4 steals and 0.6 treys, so he's a must-start player if active, obviously. If he's out, we should get a lot of Shabazz Napier and Mario Chalmers running the point, but it'll be the Dwyane Wade Show, as well.
Mar 2 - 5:51 PM

Kyle Lowry (rest) will not play against the 76ers on Monday.

According to some earlier reports, there's a decent chance Lowry sits out more games, which makes sense given how awful he's played lately. Plus, he also has some issues with his hand and that may explain the shooting woes. That means Greivis Vasquez, a 6'6 guard, will go up against Ish Smith and Isaiah Canaan tonight, both are listed at 6'0. Vasquez will have a big opportunity in front of him tonight. As for Lowry, his fantasy owners should bench him in weekly leagues.
Mar 2 - 5:40 PM

JaKarr Sampson and Henry Sims will start for the 76ers on Monday against the Raptors.

In his previous 15 starts, Sampson averaged just 6.7 points, 2.5 boards, 1.1 assists and 1.0 steals in 19.4 minutes, so it's hard to get excited about him getting the nod tonight. However, Jerami Grant will likely see a big increase in playing time. Robert Covington (elbow) is out tonight and he was benched for much of last week's game against the Bucks, which allowed Grant to play a career-high 33 minutes. If you're looking to invest on somebody on the Philly wing (a $50 bill maybe?), it makes sense to go with Grant.
Mar 2 - 5:38 PM

Robert Covington (elbow) and Jason Richardson (rest) will not play Monday against the Raptors.

The 76ers are going to start Isaiah Canaan, JaKarr Sampson, Luc Mbah a Moute, Nerlens Noel and Henry Sims in a bigger lineup. As for Covington, he has a shot to play Wednesday and his elbow injury doesn't sound severe. That said, his owners will probably want to bench him given how he hasn't played well. To be clear, he should be owned in all leagues. Jerami Grant and Hollis Thompson benefit more than Sampson does for most fantasy owners.
