A source "close to the situation" tells Yahoo Sports that Derrick Rose (knee) is not expected back before March 1.

There has been no setback with Rose's rehab as he's reportedly "in a good place." But on Monday he admitted to only feeling around 85 percent and said he won't return until he's 110 percent -- something he said is "far away." The Bulls certainly won't rush their franchise player, especially since they're coasting along with a 30-21 record. Stashers need to keep expectations in check as Rose's minutes and games played will likely be restricted when he finally does return.

Kyrie Irving (shoulder) scored a game-high 40 points on 14-of-23 shooting in his return from a one-game absence on Sunday, but ultimately, it was not enough to pull out a win against Orlando.

Irving added five triples, seven boards, five dimes, one block and one turnover in his 40 minutes of floor time, and also went 7-of-8 from the stripe to give him a 75.4 true shooting percentage to accompany his 30.5 usage rate. The shoulder was a complete non-issue, so he should be fine for Tuesday’s game against the Lakers.

Brandon Ingram (left ankle) is available to play Sunday vs. the Knicks.

Ingram will be returning from a one-game absence, which should shift Corey Brewer back to the second unit, and there won't be quite as many minutes available for Josh Hart, Julius Randle and Kyle Kuzma. Ingram shouldn't have any sort of minutes limit today, so owners shouldn't hesitate to get him active.

Head coach Kenny Atkinson implied that D'Angelo Russell will see slightly more minutes on Sunday vs. Detroit.

Atkinson said that Russell was on a 15-minute limit on Friday, and that his minutes will start coming up "incrementally," so he should see a couple extra minutes today in Detroit. He's not going to be on the floor enough to be worth using in DFS, but season-long owners can go ahead and get him active.

Brandon Ingram (ankle) is a game-time call vs. the Knicks on Sunday.

Ingram was getting treatment while coach Luke Walton was speaking, but it sounds like he'll test his ankle out in warmups. If Ingram can't go, the Lakers will use a committee approach to soak up his minutes with several players such as Kyle Kuzma, Josh Hart and Julius Randle getting a bump.
Jan 21 - 1:51 PM

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (Achilles) will not play on Sunday vs. the Knicks.

This is his second game in a row on the shelf, but at least he wasn't ruled out a full day before this time. With KCP and Lonzo Ball out, we should see plenty of Josh Hart and Jordan Clarkson in a favorable matchup.

Kyrie Irving (sore left shoulder) will play on Sunday vs. the Magic.

He was trending in this direction and now we have confirmation. Irving "looked good" at Saturday's practice and the Celtics held him out on Thursday as a "precaution," but we'll let you know how his shoulder holds up after the game. Expect him to start and see his normal allotment of minutes, meaning Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier will lose some value.

Damian Lillard made 10-of-15 from the field for 31 points during a 117-108 win over the Mavs on Saturday, adding five rebounds, nine assists and seven 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

He was rolling to start this game, making all nine of his first shots including all seven of those treys. That's not really a surprise because Lillard is en fuego since returning from injury, averaging 26.8 points, 4.7 boards, 8.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 3.0 treys on 50.5 percent from the field and 89.7 percent from the line. The Blazers are right in the thick of the playoff race and Dame's owners can expect him to suit up for every game he can as a top-10 player in standard leagues.

Dennis Smith Jr. kept it going against the Blazers on Saturday, scoring 21 points with six rebounds, six assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

He's easily in his best groove of his career with four 20-plus scoring games over his last five. In that span, he's averaged 20.8 points, 3.8 boards, 4.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 treys on 46.4 percent from the field and 90.9 percent from the line. A big reason why has been his shot selection, making 68.8 percent at the rim with those attempts accounting for 38.1 percent of his shot total over this five-game stretch. Patience looks like it's about to pay off for the rookie phenom.
Jan 21 - 1:12 AM

Andrew Wiggins scored a season-high 29 points during a 115-109 win over the Raptors on Saturday, adding five rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

He shot the ball well with his 11-of-21 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line. Wiggins also pulled down two huge rebounds late in the game to help the Wolves snap their two-game losing streak. It's not really a surprise that Wiggins blew up because Jimmy Butler (knee) didn't play. It doesn't sound like Jimmy will be out long, so this strong game doesn't really change Wiggins' outlook.
Jan 21 - 1:00 AM

Marcus Georges-Hunt scored a career-high 12 points with three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

He came through in the clutch with some made free throws and coach Tom Thibodeau trusted him down the stretch. Georges-Hunt is more of a defensive specialist, so he would only be a speculative add in super deep leagues until we get more news on Jimmy Butler and Jamal Crawford.
Jan 21 - 12:45 AM

Kyle Lowry erupted for a season-high 40 points against the Wolves during a 115-109 loss on Saturday, adding five rebounds, five assists and six 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

Surprisingly, this was just his second 30-point game of the season, and also just the first time he's topped 20 in back-to-back games since November. Lowry has also been bombing 3-pointers lately with 9.6 attempts per game over his last three, making 4.7 of them. He's at his best when his jumper is falling, so we could see Lowry go on a heater.
