Latest Headlines

Kyle Lowry (back) did not practice on Sunday.

His back "tightened up" on him in Saturday's loss, but he was able to play through the injury and logged 10 minutes after his return in the third quarter. Even though Lowry's value is floundering right now, his upside along with the possibility of Jose Calderon getting traded make him a prime buy-low candidate.

Kevin Martin (hamstring) will not play vs. the Pelicans on Sunday.

Martin is targeting a return next week but he remains iffy to play in Monday's game vs. the Jazz, and cautious owners may want to hedge their bets in weekly leagues. The Wolves got a few healthy bodies back into the lineup with Anthony Bennett and Robbie Hummel returning on Sunday, but they'll still lean heavily on sixth-man Chase Budinger.

Kevin McHale said that Patrick Beverley (wrist) probably won't be back this season.

While an official decision has not been made on Beverley, this is the first time McHale has spoken with this degree of pessimism, so things really aren't looking good at all for Beverley. Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will continue to man the point guard position in his absence, but neither guy is deserving of a roster spot in standard leagues.
Mar 29 - 3:50 PM

The Cavs will not rest any of their players for Sunday's game vs. the 76ers.

Anyone who was fearing a possible rest day for LeBron James against the tanking 76ers can go ahead and put those fears to rest. He may however take an early seat on the bench if the game turns into a blowout, but he's obviously a must-start guy every time he's in uniform.
Mar 29 - 3:44 PM

George Karl said he may be resting some players to experiment with some lineups as the Kings close out their regular-season, and he's talked with DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay about possibly sitting out 1-2 games.

Owners of Gay and Cousins will need to be on high alert this next week for a potential rest day. They don't have any back-to-back sets coming until April 7, so it will be hard to predict when these rest days might come. Omri Casspi will benefit in Gay's absence, while Jason Thompson, Carl Landry, Derrick Williams, and Reggie Evans will all have the opportunity for extended minutes when Cousins sits. Stay tuned.
Mar 29 - 3:40 PM

Furkan Aldemir will start at center for Sunday's game vs. the Cavs, sliding Nerlens Noel over to the four-spot, and sending JaKarr Sampson to the bench.

The Sixers will go with a starting unit of Ish Smith, Robert Covington, Jerami Grant, Noel and Aldemir. This will be Aldemir's second start of the season, but the last time he entered the starting lineup he failed to score through 20 minutes of action while adding just five rebounds and three blocks. He can remain on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Mar 29 - 3:22 PM

Kevin Garnett (illness, knee) will not play Sunday vs. the Pelicans.

Garnett has reportedly been sick for the past four days, and unable to eat, so he'll remain on the sidelines for Sunday's game. With Garnett unavailable, Gorgui Dieng will continue to get all the run he can handle, while Andreian Payne will see his minutes in the 20s. Anthony Bennett will return to action today, so he'll also have the opportunity to get into the rotation, although his minutes will likely be very limited after spending the past month on the sidelines.
Mar 29 - 3:09 PM

Ricky Rubio (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans.

He was doubtful heading into this one so there shouldn't be any surprises here, though Flip Saunders said Rubio could return vs. Utah on Monday. Zach LaVine and Lorenzo Brown will get all the run they can handle, with LaVine offering the most upside.
Mar 29 - 3:02 PM

Anthony Bennett (ankle) will make his return Sunday vs. New Orleans.

The Timberwolves have been absolutely devastated by injuries, so Bennett will provide the team with some much-needed frontcourt depth. That being said, he's been out since Feb. 20, so he'll more than likely have his minutes held in check today as his conditioning isn't likely where it needs to be. Until he's logging major minutes for Minnesota, he belongs on the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Mar 29 - 2:57 PM

Robbie Hummel (hand) will be available to play Sunday vs. the Pelicans.

Hummel has been out since Jan. 25 with a broken hand, so he'll more than likely have his minutes limited today. He'll give the Wolves some much-needed backcourt depth, but until he becomes a major part of the rotation, he belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Mar 29 - 2:54 PM

If Jamal Crawford continues to make progress in his recovery from a deep calf bruise, there's a chance he'll be able to return to action on April 7 vs. the Lakers.

That tentative return date would have Crawford missing at least the next five games, ruling him out for all of this week, so he can safely remain on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues. J.J. Redick and Matt Barnes remain the primary beneficiaries with Crawford out.
Mar 29 - 2:31 PM

Deron Williams (illness) will play Sunday vs. the Lakers.

Williams struggled badly in his last outing, but he'll look to bounce-back today with a very favorable matchup against the Lakers. Go ahead and get him active, and those that were expecting big minutes for Jarret Jack should probably temper their expectations.
