Pau Gasol (foot) is no longer using crutches.

It's been just three weeks since Gasol was diagnosed with a partial tear of his plantar fascia, so the fact that he's already ditched his crutches is a great sign. He reiterated via Twitter Tuesday that there's no target date for his return, but did say he's feeling better every day. The Lakers previously said that in a best-case scenario, Gasol would be back in late-March. He'd return as a backup behind frontcourt starters Dwight Howard and Earl Clark.

Monta Ellis will start for Indiana on Sunday, with C.J. Miles coming off the bench.

Ellis started the second half on Friday so this doesn't come as a total surprise, and having another guy capable of creating his own offense should take some pressure off Paul George. Ellis is trending up but he's still just a low-end option, while the move to the bench makes it tough to trust Miles in standard leagues.

Tony Parker (head) is expected to play vs. the Cavs on Monday.

Danny Green (rest) is also expected to return to action as the Spurs try to close the gap with the No. 1 seed Warriors, who are currently two games up. Parker has been playing well when healthy lately, but he's not a reliable option outside of deep leagues.

Avery Bradley (illness) said that he will play Sunday vs. the Heat.

Bradley went through shootaround, and there's been no discussion of a minutes limit, so owners can feel free to get him active. With Bradley back in action, Jaylen Brown will more than likely shift back to the second unit, and Marcus Smart will likely see his minutes reduced to the 20s.

Malachi Richardson (hamstring) will be shut down for the season, according to multiple reports.

Kayte Christensen reported the Kings' decision, and it was confirmed by CSN's James Ham, so this is the end of the line for Richardson's rookie campaign. The injury put a serious damper on his fantasy stock, but he's an interesting guy to keep in mind for next season -- the Kings are in a full rebuild and Darren Collison, Ty Lawson and Tyreke Evans are all unrestricted FAs.

Skal Labissiere will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Clippers.

Kosta Koufos is getting a rest day, so Labissiere might be able to flirt with minutes in the 30s tonight. Joining him in the starting five will be Darren Collison, Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans and Willie Cauley-Stein, with Ty Lawson shifting to the second unit. Labissiere is coming off a 10-point, 10-board, eight-dime game, so he could be someone to consider streaming.
Mar 26 - 3:43 PM

Tyreke Evans (rest) is expected to be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Clippers, according to Kings' Insider James Ham.

Evans will likely remain on a minutes limit today, and with 10 other games on the slate, fantasy GMs should have more attractive options to put on their active roster. With Evans active, guys like Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore will take a slight hit.
Mar 26 - 3:33 PM

Darren Collison (rest) will return to the starting five for Sunday's matchup with the Clippers.

This could mean that Ty Lawson will be returning to the second unit, and his value figures to take a hit with Collison active. In his two games against the Clippers this season, Collison has compiled averages of 18.0 points, 2.0 triples, 3.5 boards, 2.0 assists and just 1.0 turnover per contest on 58.3 percent shooting, so feel free to get him active.
Mar 26 - 3:24 PM

Austin Rivers will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with Sacramento, with J.J. Redick (ankle) unavailable.

Rivers could have a nice game tonight going up against Sacramento's weak defense, so he's on the radar as a potential streamer. Chris Paul, Luc Mbah a Moute, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan will join Rivers in the starting five, and there will be some more opportunity for Jamal Crawford in the second unit sans Redick.

Avery Bradley (illness) was with the Celtics during shootaround on Sunday, but his status for the matchup vs. Miami is still uncertain.

It's unclear how active Bradley was, but his very presence is encouraging after his recent hospitalization. Check back closer to tip-off for confirmation, one way or the other. If he can't suit up, expect Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown to gain the most in his absence.

With Ryan Anderson (ankle) set to spend the next two weeks on the sidelines, the Rockets will give more minutes to Lou Williams and Sam Dekker.

Mike D'Antoni acknowledged that Williams has been in a bit of a shooting funk as of late, but he's hopeful some added minutes will help him get into a better rhythm. "He hasn't been real consistent, [but] he manufacturers points somehow either getting to the foul line or assists," said D'Antoni. "He started off so well you think he's going to make every shot and it's not fair to him, but he's good." Williams could be worth a speculative add in wake of the Ryno injury.

Eric Gordon will start vs. the Thunder on Sunday.

Ryan Anderson (ankle) is likely going to miss around two weeks according to coach Mike D'Antoni, so Gordon, Lou Williams and Sam Dekker are all looking at a bump in minutes. Gordon is averaging 12.8 points, 2.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 2.4 treys on 43.1 percent shooting over his last five games, and with four games on the schedule next week, his owners should be in great shape in terms of 3-pointers.
