Jameer Nelson jammed his wrist in the first half and did not start the second half.

He was in a lot of pain as he jammed it and he's likely being evaluated by the training staff. Nelson has been battling injuries for much of the season and we'll update you once we get his initial diagnosis. E'Twaun Moore would make for a hot pickup in standard leagues with Nelson out.

Hassan Whiteside (hand) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

Mar 27 - 11:47 AM

Donatas Motiejunas (back) did not participate during shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

Motiejunas isn't headed in the right direction after missing shootaround, so we're going to consider him closer to doubtful than questionable for tonight's game. If he's unable to go, Josh Smith would get all the run he can handle, and he'll be well worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned.
Mar 27 - 11:44 AM

Dwyane Wade (knee) did not go through shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Atlanta.

Head coach Erik Spoelstra said that he doesn't expect Wade to play tonight, so we'll be considering him on the doubtful side of questionable. If he is forced to sit, expect Goran Dragic and Luol Deng to see some increased opportunity on offense, with Mario Chalmers likely starting at the two-spot.
Mar 27 - 11:40 AM

Chris Andersen (calf) said that he will play Friday vs. the Hawks.

With Hassan Whiteside (hand) very unlikely to play tonight, the Heat could really use Andersen in the lineup. Birdman would have the opportunity to start if he is able to suit up, but with averages of just 8.0 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks with the starting unit, his value is limited to deeper leagues. Check back for an official update on Andersen closer to tip-off.

Ryan Kelly stated during a recent interview that he's more comfortable playing at the power forward position.

"I’m a little more comfortable there," Kelly said regarding the power forward spot. "I can get more involved offensively than I had been at times [playing small forward]." Kelly has started at the four-spot the past two games, putting in averages of 13.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 three-pointers, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 block per game. If he can continue to start at power forward, he'll be worth a look in deep leagues for owners seeking some 3-point shooting.

Ersan Ilyasova scored a career-high 34 points on 12-of-14 from the field against the Pacers during a 111-107 win on Thursday, adding six rebounds, two assists, two steals and five 3-pointers.

He gets the fantasy equivalent of a Grammy for posting an effective field goal percentage of 103.6. Back in January, it was a winter war for Ghostface Ilya with his minutes per game at just 17.2. Now, he’s finally been consistent with at least 29 minutes in each of his previous five, averaging 17.0 points, 8.8 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 treys on 45.9 percent from the field. He's spitting hot fire right now and is a must-start player.

George Hill stayed hot against the Bucks on Thursday during a 111-107 loss with 24 points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal and six 3-pointers on 7-of-12 from the field.

His six 3-pointers were a career high and the Bucks just left him open way too often. He's scored at least 20 points in four of his last five, averaging 23.0 points, 4.2 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 triples. Hill no longer has a minutes limit and is one of the hottest properties in fantasy in the past two weeks with second-round value in that span.
Mar 26 - 10:48 PM

David West (illness) will not play against the Bucks on Thursday.

He is dealing with an allergic reaction and it's unknown if this has anything to do with his Friday illness that caused him to play just 12 minutes. With West out, Luis Scola will step in and get most of the minutes at power forward. The Pacers will also likely count on the rest of their starting five to pick up more of the scoring burden.
Mar 26 - 7:07 PM

Rodney Hood (illness) did not travel with the team for their road-game in Denver.

We'll be considering Hood doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets, and if he is indeed unavailable, Elijah Millsap and Joe Ingles will have the opportunity to play extended minutes. Stay tuned.
Mar 26 - 6:35 PM

Gordon Hayward (shoulder) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Hayward spent the past two games on the sidelines, but it appears he'll be able to return to the lineup on Friday for a favorable matchup against the Nuggets. With Hayward back, Elijah Millsap and Trey Burke would be candidates to head back to the bench. Check back for another update on Hayward's status closer to Friday's tip.
Mar 26 - 6:29 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will play Thursday against the Pacers.

Mayo was limited to just six minutes when he returned to action on Tuesday, but head coach Jason Kidd said he'll "add minutes" for Mayo tonight. That's a pretty vague quote, but we doubt Mayo would see his minutes much higher than the 20s. With a tough matchup against the Pacers, and a lot of uncertainty around how much floor time Mayo will see tonight, he's not a great option in most leagues.
