Kirk Hinrich (elbow) did not go through shootaround and is doubtful to play on Wednesday against the Bucks.

Hinrich didn't practice on Tuesday, either, and given how many injuries he's dealt with this season, his owners shouldn't view it as a surprise if he's forced out. If he sits, Nate Robinson is likely to start in his place. Robinson is averaging 9.0 points, 5.8 assists, 1.0 3-pointers and 1.5 steals over four starts this season.

Rajon Rondo stepped up in the absence of Monta Ellis (calf) in Sunday's loss to the Pacers, scoring 17 points with 10 assists, seven boards, two steals and one block in 38 minutes.

Rondo shot 8-of-14 from the field and hit his only free throw attempt on the night, and early indications suggests that he will be the biggest beneficiary if Ellis remains on the shelf (there is no timetable for his return). This was also the most minutes Rondo has played since joining the Mavericks, and he should be able to carry this momentum moving forward with the extra responsibility on offense.

Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies with a 20 & 13 double-double on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to earn a road win in San Antonio.

Memphis has dropped three straight games and they're just 11-10 since the All-Star break, a record that doesn't bode well with the postseason just a few weeks away. Z-Bo's team-high scoring came on 9-of-16 shooting, a solid performance that helps compensate for his utter lack of assists, steals or blocks.
Mar 29 - 9:31 PM

Kawhi Leonard carried the Spurs to a win over Memphis on Sunday with 25 points on 11-of-17 shooting, 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal.

DNP-CDs have been mercifully rare for the Spurs this season, but if Gregg Popovich does intend to rest his key players, there are two likely back-to-back sets coming up on Mar. 31/Apr. 1 and Apr. 7/8. There's obviously no need to panic, especially with Leonard -- the 23-year-old star has reclaimed elite value despite playing a modest 33.1 minutes per game in March.
Mar 29 - 9:27 PM

J.J. Redick poured in 27 points to help L.A. fend off the Celtics on Sunday, hitting 11-of-15 FGs with five 3-pointers, five rebounds and four assists.

The Warriors may want to bring a firehose to Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers, as Redick has been torching opponents in March with averages of 20.6 points and 3.0 triples per game. His high-volume perimeter shooting hasn't affected his percentages, either, as he's made 49.3 percent of his field goals and hasn't missed a free throw since going 1-of-2 on Feb. 23.
Mar 29 - 9:14 PM

Michael Beasley suffered a stinger in his elbow during Sunday's game vs. the Pistons, and he was unable to return after just seven minutes of action.

Beasley's elbow flared up and he didn't have any mobility in his arm after the game, but the Heat didn't seem to be overly concerned and head coach Erik Spoelstra is hopeful that he will play vs. the Spurs on Tuesday. Beasley isn't a great option in fantasy leagues and hasn't been getting a lot of minutes even with the Heat dealing with a lot of injuries, so owners in most leagues should probably leave him on the wire.
Mar 29 - 9:04 PM

The Pistons fell in Miami on Sunday, 102-109, despite having Reggie Jackson score 31 points on 12-of-17 shooting with three 3-pointers, six rebounds and nine assists.

Jackson and Andre Drummond (32 points) were unstoppable but they were abandoned by their teammates, who combined for just 39 points on 14-of-49 shooting (28.6 percent). R-Jax was coming off a triple-double and his sluggish start after joining the Pistons is a fading memory as he carries owners deeper into the fantasy playoffs.
Mar 29 - 8:53 PM

Dwyane Wade took over Sunday's game while playing through a knee injury, dropping a game-high 40 points on 14-of-27 FGs and 12-of-13 FTs in 36 minutes of action.

His knee was drained on Saturday but he still suited up for the short-handed Heat, who began Sunday with a one-game cushion for the No. 7 seed. To his fantasy owners' delight, Wade added six boards, four assists and one steal with only one turnover. We're leaving him off the injury report in advance of Tuesday's game, but owners should double-check his status as a precaution.
Mar 29 - 8:51 PM

Udonis Haslem was huge for the Heat on Sunday, racking up 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting, 13 rebounds (seven offensive), two assists and one steal in a crucial win vs. the Pistons.

The Heat hold the No. 7 seed in the East but they have no room for error, as they're just 2.5 games ahead of the 10th place Hornets. Hassan Whiteside (hand) and Chris Andersen (calf) are both iffy to return on Tuesday so Haslem, who logged 35 minutes tonight, may be forced into heavy playing time yet again.
Mar 29 - 8:49 PM

Andre Drummond took advantage of Miami's injury woes to finish Sunday's road loss with a career-high 32 points (14-of-17 FGs, 4-of-7 FTs), 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and zero turnovers.

Hassan Whiteside (hand) and Chris Andersen (calf) were both out for Miami, giving Drummond a delectable matchup vs. Udonis Haslem at center. He took full advantage of the matchup, becoming the 10th player since 2010 to score 32+ points while shooting at least 82.0 percent from the field -- Ersan Ilyasova achieved the same feat during his 34-point outburst on Thursday. Greg Monroe (knee) doesn't have a clear return date so Drummond will continue to gorge himself in the Pistons' frontcourt.
Mar 29 - 8:48 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) will play vs. the Thunder on Sunday, but he will come off the bench.

After an eight-game absence, Knight is finally back. His minutes will probably be held in check and he will might be a little rusty, but his owners will be pumped to have him back in their lineups. Marcus Morris will remain in the starting lineup for now, but his value could take a hit down the stretch. We will let you know how Knight holds up after the game.
Mar 29 - 8:16 PM

Jared Dudley will not play vs. the Hawks on Monday in order to give his ailing back some extra rest.

Dudley has been able to play in the past two games for the Bucks, but they are wanting to be cautious with him since he had missed six consecutive games earlier in March. Dudley should be fine for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls, but he is still not a fantasy option outside of deeper leagues. Expect O.J. Mayo and Jerryd Bayless to see a few extra minutes off the bench Monday.
