Taj Gibson was diagnosed with a sprained MCL in his left knee and he is expected to miss up to two weeks.

He has been an important part of Chicago's frontcourt depth, averaging 28 minutes per game in the month of February. While Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah are healthy now, Noah's plantar fasciitis will be under a microscope now that he doesn't have a capable backup behind him. Nazr Mohammed could play more and the Bulls have used Jimmy Butler at power forward as well.

D'Angelo Russell posted a gem of a line on Tuesday vs. the Wizards with 28 points, nine assists, six rebounds, one block and four 3-pointers.

He was well on pace for a triple-double, but the Lakers had a meltdown in the fourth quarter when they were outscored 37-13. Regardless, Russell shot 10-of-21 from the field and hit all four of his free throws, drawing the praise of head coach Luke Walton after the game -- Walton said he looked "brilliant" and praised him for his aggressiveness, passing and how he pushed the pace. Russell's value is locked and loaded the rest of the way, assuming Walton doesn't bench him again.

John Wall lit up the Lakers for 34 points and 14 assists in Tuesday's 119-108 win.

Trailing by 13 points entering the fourth, the Wizards outscored the Lakers 37-13 in the final quarter. Wall finished 14-of-25 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line with three rebounds, four steals and one triple in 37 minutes, improving the Wizards to 30-12 since the new year. The Wizards play three more times this week against the Clippers on Wednesday, the Jazz on Friday and the Warriors on Sunday.

C.J. McCollum went off for 39 points on 15-of-24 shooting in Tuesday's crucial win over the Nuggets.

Portland has now won a season-high tying four straight games and improved to 12-3 in March which ties them with San Antonio for the league's best record in that span. As for McCollum, this was the second- highest scoring game of his career and he finished four points shy of his career-high (43). He hit all six of his free throws with five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three triples in 40 minutes, and with the Blazers holding a 1.0 game advantage over Denver for the No. 8 seed, McCollum should be an elite option the rest of the way.

Jusuf Nurkic went off in a 122-113 win over his former team on Tuesday, scoring a career-high 33 points on 12-of-15 shooting (9-of-11 FTs).

He wanted this win in the worst way and his teammates swarmed him after his career night with the Blazer crowd chanting his name like a scene in Gladiator. He ripped down 16 rebounds with two assists and three blocks in 33 minutes, giving his team a 1.0 game lead over the Nuggets for the No. 8 seed in the West. He's been phenomenal since his move to Portland and he will likely be on a lot of championship rosters in fantasy leagues.

Stephen Curry hit 11-of-22 shots and three 3-pointers for 32 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists and two steals in Tuesday's 113-106 win over the Rockets.

James Harden's line was a triple-double, but the Warriors got the win. And while Curry's production was a bone of contention for his owners this season, he might be ready to finish in a flurry. If you're still in the playoffs, he might be ready to carry your team to a championship. And coach Steve Kerr said after the game he plans on playing all his guys on Wednesday at San Antonio.
Mar 28 - 11:52 PM

T.J. Warren went off for 24 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and six turnovers in Tuesday's 95-91 loss to the Hawks.

Devin Booker (ankle, rest) sat this one out, so Warren was the clear focal point of the offense. He finished 11-of-20 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, and the fact that he logged 40 minutes suggests that the foot contusion that held him out of a pair of games last week is behind him. Warren should be owned in all leagues and his owners can deploy him three more times this week.
Mar 28 - 11:46 PM

Draymond Green sprained his left ankle on Tuesday, but finished the game and says he's good to go going forward.

Dray had 19 points, nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and a 3-pointer on Tuesday and hit 9-of-15 shots in 33 minutes for one of his better games in recent memory. The Warriors will play again on Wednesday night against the Spurs, and coach Steve Kerr said after the game he has no plans to rest anyone, adding "guys are good to go." Green should still be considered a game-time decision until we get final word on whether he'll play or not, but for now, it sounds like he's a lot closer to probable than doubtful.
Mar 28 - 11:37 PM

James Harden had his 20th triple-double of the season with 24 points, 11 rebounds, 13 assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in Tuesday's 113-106 loss to the Warriors, but also hurt his left wrist along the way.

He hit just 5-of-20 shots and 1-of-9 3-pointers, but was a perfect 13-of-13 from the line. As for his left wrist injury, coach Mike D'Antoni said it was bothering Harden during the game and that it might be something to "look at." It was also wrapped in ice after the game, ironically, on the same day Harden's comments about guys not resting so as not to let their teammates down emerged. If Harden sits, it's going to be because he's hurt, but he hasn't missed a game this season and we doubt he's about to start now. Especially with the fact he's embattled in one of the best MVP races we've ever seen with Russell Westbrook. The Rockets visit Portland on Thursday, so owners will want to watch for news about Harden's status for that one.
Mar 28 - 11:20 PM

Kent Bazemore (knee) said he will play on Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

He has missed five games in a row, so he might be limited upon his return. Bazemore has been a headache to own in fantasy this season, so he's just a low-end pickup with averages of 11.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 triples on 40.7 percent shooting. His return could send Tim Hardaway Jr. to the bench.
Mar 28 - 11:08 PM

Taurean Prince made his second straight start on Tuesday vs. the Suns and filled up the box score again, racking up 15 points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and one triple in 36 minutes.

He finished 5-of-10 from the field and 4-of-5 from the line. Coach Mike Budenholzer said before the game that Prince "is really coming in the right direction" and added that he was "great" in his previous start -- he went off for 17 points, six boards, one assist, three steals, one block and two triples in 38 minutes vs. the Nets on Monday. Thabo Sefolosha (groin) isn't expected to return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers, so Prince is worth a long look if you need some money stats (steals, blocks and triples).
Mar 28 - 11:04 PM

Ricky Rubio hit just 4-of-12 shots, but also knocked down 13-of-13 free throws on his way to 21 points and 10 assists in 38 minutes of Tuesday's 115-114 win over the Pacers.

He also hit the game-winning free throws late, which should give him a boost of confidence as well. Rubio was struggling pretty badly earlier in the season, but has turned it around to become a force down the stretch. If you bought low or held onto him through the dark period, it's paying off right now. He's averaging 15 points, 10.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.0 3-pointers on 39 percent shooting over his last five games, but also hasn't missed a free throw in his last eight games (38-of-38).
