Thaddeus Young (hamstring) is ahead of his rehabilitation schedule, and has an outside shot of returning on Sunday against the Knicks.

"I’m encouraged with him," Doug Collins said. "We definitely have to have him out there. He gives us speed. He’s our glue." Spencer Hawes, Nick Young, Dorell Wright and Lavoy Allen should expect to take some sort of incremental hit upon Thad's return.

Kyle Lowry (rest) said he's making progress and is close to a return.

The Raptors didn't practice on Thursday, but this is good news for Lowry's fantasy owners. Lowry will accompany the team on their three-game road trip so we'll consider him questionable for Friday's game against the Hornets. Greivis Vasquez would again be a solid plug-and-play option if Lowry is unable to suit up against Charlotte.

Patrick Beverley (right foot sprain) is questionable for Friday's game against the Pistons.

Beverley just can't catch a break this season as he's become a mainstay on the injury report. We'll keep an eye on his status after Friday's shootaround, but Jason Terry, Pablo Prigioni, and Corey Brewer would all be in line for more minutes (albeit with limited fantasy value) is Beverley is unable to play on Friday.

Terrence Jones (lower back pain) is questionable for Friday's game against the Pistons.

Jones has been on fire as of late, so his owners will have to watch his status closely leading up to Friday's game. If he's unable to suit up, Josh Smith and Donatas Motiejunas would be in line for big minutes against the Pistons.

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose (knee) is still in the initial phases of his rehab process.

Thibodeau added that Rose has been riding a stationary bike, but it doesn't sound like he'll be traveling with the team to Indianapolis or San Antonio. Rose is planning on returning this season, but it's unlikely he'll return in time to make enough a dent in fantasy leagues and can be left on the waiver wire in most leagues.

Russell Westbrook (face) said he has no issues with his protective mask that he wore during Wednesday's win over the 76ers.

Westbrook recorded his fourth consecutive triple-double Wednesday night and the mask did little to hamper his efforts. "I mean, it was weird, obviously, [I] kept wiping it and it was a total, big process of trying to keep everything from not falling and all this stuff," he said. "But that's not going to stop me. My job is to come out there and lead my team." There's not much else to say about Westbrook right now other than that he should be cemented in every fantasy lineup.

The Boston Celtics are reportedly close to signing JaVale McGee.

McGee has had a fair share of suitors since being released by the 76ers, but it looks like he'll end up in Celtic green on a deal that will reportedly be through the 2015-16 season. McGee will join a crowded Celtics frontcourt of Tyler Zeller, Brandon Bass, Kelly Olynyk, so the fantasy fallout from this move is more of a downgrade for all four players than it is an upgrade for any.

Andre Drummond scored 13 points with 18 boards, one assist, one steal and six blocks against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

It's not a tough argument to make that the Reggie Jackson trade is helping Drummond. In his last five with RJ, Drummond averaged 16.4 points, 13.6 boards, 2.6 blocks and 0.4 steals on 63.2 percent from the field. He's still going to be abysmal from the line, but Drummond is back to being a beast.
Mar 5 - 1:57 AM

Hassan Whiteside racked up 18 points, a career-high 25 rebounds and four blocks on 6-of-10 shooting in Wednesday's win over the Lakers.

Man, are the Lakers good at giving it up to the opposition. Whiteside has collected 64 rebounds over his last three games and is averaging 16.0 points, 15.8 rebounds and three blocks over his last five games. Sure, he hit just 6-of-13 free throws tonight, but who cares?
Mar 5 - 1:28 AM

Isaiah Canaan scored a career-high 31 points against the Thunder on Wednesday during an overtime 123-118 loss, adding seven rebounds, six assists, one steal and eight 3-pointers.

He was awful in his previous six games, averaging 10.5 points, 2.2 boards, 2.8 assists, 0.5 steals and 2.3 treys on 35.5 percent from the field. Coach Brett Brown is committed to Canaan as his starter and we always knew he had the upside. Obviously, he won't be dropping many lines like this one, but he's worth owning in standard leagues to see if he can keep it going.
Mar 5 - 1:19 AM

LeBron James didn't take kindly to a flagrant tackle by Jonas Valanciunas late in the third quarter on Wednesday, and finished the win with 29 points, six rebounds, 14 assists and three 3-pointers on 9-of-16 shooting.

He scored 14 points in the fourth quarter and the 14 dimes matched his season high. The Cavs are all but a lock to finish as the No. 2 seed in the East, and an eventual Eastern Conference Finals matchup with the Hawks would be fun to watch. Stay tuned.
Mar 5 - 12:57 AM

Jason Richardson had his best game since 2012 during a loss to the Thunder on Wednesday with 29 points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

He hit two deep treys to help get this game to overtime. Richardson has been solid since his return and has put up numbers in each of his last four, averaging 16.8 points, 3.8 boards, 2.5 dimes, 1.0 steals and 3.3 treys. He's worth starting when he's active, but will be rested here and there.
