Latest Headlines

Gordon Hayward felt pain in his right shoulder in practice on Tuesday when attempting to make a pass over his head.

He did say he was at "95 percent," but that's a little hard to believe given the circumstances. In an odd twist, there have been no reports of Hayward getting an MRI, which is surprising given the complex nature of the shoulder joint. Hayward has been ruled out for Wednesday's game and that will make it at least 10 games on the inactive list. Perhaps since he had a setback, the Jazz may opt to give him a precautionary MRI. Stay tuned for news over the break.

Russell Westbrook followed up Monday's heroics with another astounding performance, dropping 57 points (21-of-40 FGs, 9-of-11 FTs), 13 rebounds, 11 assists, six 3-pointers and three steals in a comeback overtime win vs. Orlando on Wednesday.

Westbrook led a furious charge to send this game into OT, capped by a clutch 3-pointer against two defenders to tie the game (see the link below). This was the highest-scoring game ever with a triple-double and Westy now has 38 of them on the year, three behind Oscar Robertson's single-season record. Magic swingman Evan Fournier advocated Westbrook as a "co-MVP" with James Harden before the game, and fantasy owners will also be hard-pressed to make a distinction between those two studs.

Darren Collison, Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein will start against the Jazz on Wednesday.

With Kosta Koufos resting again, the Kings will go back to Skal here. The rookie has been a disaster in a past handful of games, but now he gets a tough matchup against the Jazz.
Mar 29 - 10:27 PM

Andrew Harrison (right ankle) is doubtful to return against the Pacers on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies are going to be a little thin tonight and will be giving a few extra minutes to Troy Daniels. If Harrison needs to miss time, they might get Wade Baldwin in the rotation again. There's little fantasy value changing here.
Mar 29 - 9:49 PM

Matt Barnes will start and Patrick McCaw will come off the bench against the Spurs on Wednesday.

The Warriors will go away from McCaw after his 0-of-12 against the Spurs in the last game against them back on Mar. 11. Barnes figures to play minutes in the 20s, but he's not really a fantasy option.
Mar 29 - 9:26 PM

Gordon Hayward (quad) will play and Dante Exum will start against the Kings on Wednesday.

He's back after missing just one game due to a knee to his quad from Austin Rivers. Hayward went through shootaround today and he did try to play through the injury initially, so Hayward should be close to 100 percent. His return should take minutes from Joe Ingles, Joe Johnson and maybe even Rodney Hood.
Mar 29 - 9:18 PM

J.J. Redick (ankle) will play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He's back after missing one game. Redick landed on a basketball to turn his ankle and it didn't look too bad on Saturday, so expect Redick to be somewhat close to 100 percent. He's still only a borderline asset in fantasy while Austin Rivers loses value here.
Mar 29 - 8:56 PM

Brandan Wright will start against the Pacers on Wednesday and Zach Randolph will move to the bench.

The Grizzlies need some scoring in their second unit, so they'll have their 22nd different starting lineup today. Wright should be looking at minutes in the 20s and is a viable play in fantasy. He will only have short-term value until Marc Gasol (foot) can return.
Mar 29 - 7:54 PM

JaMychal Green (left shoulder soreness) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Indiana.

Memphis will be without Green and Marc Gasol (foot) tonight, so the Grizzlies will roll out a new starting frontcourt of James Ennis and Brandan Wright. Zach Randolph will very likely see his minutes in the 30s tonight, despite coming off the bench, and Mike Conley will be working with a robust usage rate. The Grizzlies play again Friday vs. Dallas, and for now, we'll be considering Green questionable for that one.
Mar 29 - 7:50 PM

Khris Middleton (head) will be in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

Middleton required three stitches to close a gash in his forehead on Tuesday, but he was never expected to spend any time on the sidelines. Malcolm Brogdon, Tony Snell, Giannis Antetokounmpo and Thon Maker will join him in the starting five for tonight's game.
Mar 29 - 7:11 PM

Seth Curry (shoulder) will play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

He was a full participant during shootaround and is no longer feeling any pain in his left shoulder, so he should be back in the starting five without a minutes restriction tonight. With Curry back in action, Yogi Ferrell will likely head back to the second unit and J.J. Barea won't play as much. Feel free to get Curry active for what should be an uptempo game against New Orleans.
Mar 29 - 7:06 PM

Carmelo Anthony is listed as the starter against the Heat on Wednesday.

With Derrick Rose (knee) out, Melo should be looking at quite a few shots tonight. He'll likely get a couple nights off in the near future, but go ahead and get him in your lineup for now.
