Sources tell Rotoworld that the Kings are open to moving Tyreke Evans and Aaron Brooks.

This isn't too surprising given the state of affairs in Sacramento, as they recently traded No. 5 overall pick Thomas Robinson in a salary dump for a modest, or as some would say awful return of Patrick Patterson and spare parts. Brooks was widely known to be on the block, but news of Evans' availability is new. We'll let you know more as the story develops. Marc Stein adds that Boston is revisiting old talks about Evans, and sources tell us Utah might also emerge in talks. Jason Jones just updated that Evans will not be dealt, but it's early.

Willy Hernangomez (sprained left ankle) did not practice Tuesday.

The Knicks play Wednesday night in Orlando. We will have to await an update from the team to see if Willy is on track to play vs. the Magic. If he is unable to suit up, Kyle O'Quinn would likely draw the start at center. Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) was able to practice on Tuesday. Assuming KP plays Wednesday, he could also see some time at center.

Coach Mike Malone estimates that Kenneth Faried (back) will miss at least the next 7-10 days.

Faried is not traveling with the team on their road trip. He is back in Denver to receive treatment. Wilson Chandler started in place of Faried on Sunday and will likely draw another start on Tuesday. Darrell Arthur and Mason Plumlee should also see an uptick in minutes with Faried sidelined. Juancho Hernangomez was expected to see additional playing time on Sunday, but was a DNP-CD.

Marvin Williams (right shoulder strain) is listed as questionable in the game notes for Thursday's matchup with the Lakers.

This is the first we've heard of a shoulder issue for Williams, who hasn't missed a game since early December. In fact, Williams is averaging 38.4 minutes over the Hornets last four games. With Cody Zeller (quad) also listed as questionable, the Hornets would be very thin up front if Williams is unable to play. Christian Wood would see a big bump in minutes and Johnny O'Bryant would probably make his Hornets debut. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist would also likely be asked to slide over and play PF at times.

Lou Williams' 28 points weren't enough in a 117-108 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

Williams shot 8-of-15 from the field in the loss with three boards, one assist, one steal, one block and five triples in 28 minutes. He also sank 7-of-8 free throws, but that's nothing new for him as he was averaging 5.9 FTAs per game coming into tonight's contest. He's loving life with his new team and may have more value in Houston than he did in Los Angeles, averaging 24.0 points, 1.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 4.7 3-pointers in his last three games.

Jeff Teague broke out of his slump with 25 points in Monday's 117-108 win over the Rockets.

He was averaging 13.8 points, 7.7 assists, 3.3 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.1 triples on 41.6 percent shooting in February prior to tonight, so this performance will be a relief for his fantasy owners. Teague shot just 5-of-13 from the field against one of the league's top perimeter defenders in Patrick Beverley, but hit 12-of-12 free throws with eight rebounds, six assists and three triples in 36 minutes. Hopefully he carries this momentum into March because he's capable of being an early-round player when he's rolling.
Feb 28 - 12:27 AM

Avery Bradley returned from his Achilles injury on Monday and played just 15 minutes, finishing with six points, two 3-pointers and three steals.

Coach Brad Stevens said he was "tempted" to play Bradley more minutes tonight, but the plan going in was for 15 minutes. His minutes should increase a bit going forward until he's back to full speed and his return will eventually hurt Marcus Smart, but he came through with 16 points in 28 minutes tonight. Bradley had been out for his last 23 games with his injury.
Feb 27 - 11:25 PM

Ty Lawson will start on Monday vs. the Wolves, sending Tyreke Evans back to the bench.

The Kings shuffle their lineups quite often, so don't read too much into this. Lawson is more of a deep-league guy right now with averages of 6.0 points and 4.0 assists in his last two games, while Evans' value should be safe regardless of where he starts the game -- the Kings are thin on the wings right now and Arron Afflalo (hamstring) and Garrett Temple (hamstring) are both out Monday.
Feb 27 - 10:30 PM

Kevin Durant returned from a one-game absence due to his left hand injury and hit 8-of-17 shots, a 3-pointer and 10-of-11 free throws for 27 points, eight rebounds, four assists and a block in Monday's 119-108 win over the Sixers.

It was great to see KD back in action and while it wasn't his most efficient line of the season, he did enough of everything to help his owners, as usual. Hopefully the hand feels good in the morning and he's good to go until his next rest day.
Feb 27 - 10:18 PM

Derrick Rose suffered a left shoulder stinger on Monday vs. the Raptors.

He collided with Patrick Patterson and asked out of the game, but he eventually returned and closed this one out. DeMar DeRozan hit the game-winning shot over Rose, but he said after the game that it was "Great [defense], better [offense]." He finished with 16 points on 5-of-12 shooting with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and three turnovers in 40 minutes. Coach Jeff Hornacek hinted before the game that Rose will have a larger workload after the team waived Brandon Jennings on Monday morning, but that's obviously a risky move for one of the most injury-prone players in the NBA. Rose said his shoulder is fine, so we'll consider him as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Magic.
Feb 27 - 10:16 PM

Richaun Holmes came off the bench for 15 points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal, three blocks and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes on Monday.

Holmes is suddenly relevant with Joel Embiid (knee) out indefinitely and Nerlens Noel now in Dallas. Holmes has played meaningful minutes in three straight games and is averaging 11.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 3.3 blocks and 0.7 3-pointers in those games. He's a fine DFS punt play right now and deserves some season-long league attention, if you need a big man who can block shots.
Feb 27 - 10:11 PM

Dario Saric played 35 minutes and hit 6-of-15 shots and 9-of-10 free throws for 21 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Monday's loss to the Warriors.

As if things weren't going well enough for the Homie, he also logged some minutes at center tonight with Jahlil Okafor in foul trouble, although it's doubtful that he'll actually qualify there this season. His line would have been a whole lot sweeter had he hit any of his six 3-point attempts, but we're not about to complain about his 21-7-7 line. His price is rising quickly in DFS, but it looks like he's going to be a fantasy beast the rest of the way.
