Carmelo Anthony hit 15-of-28 shots and tied a franchise record with nine 3-pointers on his way to 42 points, five rebounds and one assist in Sunday's win.

He had all nine of his triples by the end of the third quarter, so it's actually surprising that he didn't flirt with the NBA record of 12 tonight. He also drove past Josh Smith late, hit the shot and drew a foul, pushing the Knicks to the tough win. This just in - Melo's a beast.

Adreian Payne double-doubled on Sunday, putting up 14 points on 7-of-14 shooting, 11 rebounds, two steals, one assist and four turnovers over 36 minutes of action.

Payne was forced into heavy minutes with Gorgui Dieng (facial contusion) taking an early exit, and he responded very well to the increased floor time. With Dieng's status up in the air for Monday's game vs. the Jazz, Payne is worth a look as a streamer option in deep leagues.

Deron Williams bounced back from Friday's disappointing outing on Sunday, scoring 13 points on 5-of-13 shooting, with nine assists, one 3-pointer, one rebound, three steals, and three turnovers through 34 minutes of action.

The Lakers are the worst team in the league at defending the point guard position, so if Williams was going to have a bounce-back performance, this was the ideal opportunity. The high minute total would suggest that he's over his illness, so owners can expect him to be a go for Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers. Jarret Jack struggled to get off the bench today with Williams playing so well, and only managed seven points, two assists, two rebounds, one steal, one 3-pointer and three turnovers through 14 minutes of action.

Gorgui Dieng (facial contusion) will not be able to return to Sunday's game vs. the Pelicans.

The Wolves have been battered by injuries, so hopefully this isn't anything serious. The Wolves play the Jazz on Monday, so we will go ahead and consider Dieng questionable for that contest. We will pass along any additional details as soon as we know more. If Dieng is unable to play Monday, Justin Hamilton, Adreian Payne and Anthony Bennett would have to step up with Hamilton offering the most upside.

Brook Lopez lit up the Lakers for a game-high 30 points during Sunday's 107-99 home win, adding 11 boards, one assist and four blocks without any turnovers.

Lopez is averaging 29.2 points in his past six games, including Sunday's impressive 13-of-22 shooting display. He's helped Brooklyn earn a crucial three-game win streak with a playoff berth in the balance, and his fantasy owners must be thrilled that his best play of the year has arrived during fantasy playoffs. Lopez could exercise a $16.7 million player option this summer, but it stands to reason that he'll test the market as a free agent.

Jordan Hill thrived in his return to the Lakers' rotation on Sunday, coming off the bench for 22 points on 10-of-17 shooting, 16 rebounds and one block in just 27 minutes.

Hill was a healthy DNP-CD in his past three games, as coach Byron Scott opted to give more playing time to younger players down the stretch. He benefited from Ed Davis' precautionary rest day today, so unfortunately it may be hard for Hill to maintain a fantasy-relevant role going forward. Congratulations to anyone who gambled on Hill vs. the Nets, but it's impossible to recommend him given the ongoing risk of a DNP-CD.

Iman Shumpert was forced to leave Sunday's game vs. the 76ers and will not be able to return.

Shumpert was able to walk off the floor under his own power, but the Cavaliers have no reason to risk his health and they may have just decided to keep him out as a precaution. We will update his status once we know more, but we will go ahead and consider him questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Heat. If he is unable to play, J.R. Smith would have to log big minutes while Matthew Dellavedova may see a few extra minutes off the bench as well. Shumpert finished today's game with nine points, three steals and one board in 11 minutes.
Mar 29 - 5:40 PM

Updating a previous report, Shabazz Napier (hip) will not be able to play on Sunday vs. the Pistons.

The Heat have changed his status three times in the past 24 hours, so it's frustrating to see him ruled out of this one. Napier wasn't a consistent part of the rotation before the injury, so owners can comfortably leave him on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Mar 29 - 5:19 PM

Dwyane Wade (knee) will be in the starting lineup vs. the Pistons on Sunday.

He just had his knee drained on Saturday, so this is thrilling news for his owners. Wade belongs in all lineups while he is healthy, but his owners will want to keep a close eye on the injury report moving forward. Mario Chalmers' value takes a hit with this news, while Tyler Johnson should see fewer minutes as well.
Mar 29 - 5:17 PM

Derrick Favors (back spasms) is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

He didn't play on Saturday and we're unlikely to get another update until Monday's shootaround -- owners should at least prepare for a possible DNP, as back spasms are a particularly fickle injury. Trevor Booker would gain the most if Favors can't suit up, with more minutes also available for Rudy Gobert and Jeremy Evans.
Mar 29 - 5:04 PM

John Wall scored 25 points on Sunday, adding 12 assists, eight rebounds, four steals, one block and an unfortunate seven turnovers through 43 minutes of action.

He shot 7-of-17 from the field and 11-of-12 from the charity stripe, and while he went on a major scoring run during the third quarter (14 points), he was held to just two points through the entire fourth quarter of action. While the Wizards have been struggling lately, it's hard to point the finger at Wall, who has posted averages of 19.6 points, 8.3 assists, 6.2 rebounds, 1.5 steals, and 1.2 three-pointers per game through the month of March. With the Wizards fighting for a higher seed in the East, Wall will continue to log major minutes as they close out their regular-season.
Mar 29 - 4:56 PM

Greg Monroe (knee) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Heat.

The Pistons are considering shutting Monroe down for the season so this shouldn't take any owners by surprise. With the playoffs out of reach and only nine games remaining after Sunday, there isn't much incentive for Monroe to play at less than 100 percent. Owners fighting for their fantasy playoff lives should move on to a healthy alternative.
