Latest Headlines

Blake Griffin not only had one of the dunks of the year on Wednesday, but racked up his third career triple-double with 23 points, 11 rebounds and a career-high 11 assists in a win over the Bucks.

The dunk will be a hot water-cooler topic on Thursday morning, as Jamal Crawford went through his legs and then over his head, dumping a pass off for the trailing Griffin, who caught the ball low and windmilled it home. Griffin is rolling with three double-doubles in his last four games, and not even his poor free throw shooting can bring his owners down right now.

Jeremy Lin (illness) will start against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He missed two games due to a respiratory issue and he could be back up to his normal playing time of around 30 minutes. Lin had trouble speaking on Monday due to soreness in his throat, so there's a little risk in starting him in fantasy on a 12-game night. Jabari Brown is much less attractive now.
Apr 1 - 2:23 PM

J.J. Hickson (knee) is only expected to play if it's absolutely necessary on Wednesday against the Jazz.

He is technically questionable to play, but he'll be in uniform tonight. Without Hickson and Darrell Arthur (calf), Jusuf Nurkic and Kenneth Faried should have a higher floor for their minutes tonight. We'll likely see more of Joffrey Lauvergne as well. Hickson can be dropped just about everywhere.
Apr 1 - 2:18 PM

Paul George (leg) will not play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He is going through practice right now and is still awaiting medical clearance to get into game action. George could be cleared any day now, but there's still little incentive to adding him because the Pacers will likely limit his minutes. He can remain on the wire in most leagues.
Apr 1 - 2:10 PM

The Lakers have signed G Jabari Brown to a multi-year deal on Wednesday and have officially waived Steve Nash.

Brown has been getting some decent run down the stretch and made the most out of his two 10-day contracts. He is averaging 11.2 points, 2.0 assists, 1.8 boards, 1.2 steals, and 1.4 3-pointers over his last five games, but the likely return of Jeremy Lin (illness) on Wednesday will hurt his value. Brown is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Apr 1 - 2:00 PM

Ryan Anderson (knee) will return to action on Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

Anderson was able to go through a full-court scrimmage on Tuesday so his knee must have responded well. Head coach Monty Williams said that Anderson won't have an official minutes restriction, but he did day that he would ease him back into action. Anderson is by no means a must-own player with the season winding down, but he is worth a flier if you need help in 3-pointers.
Apr 1 - 1:51 PM

Rodney Hood (concussion) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Hood will have to go through the league's concussion protocol, and it is unclear when he will be able to return. Trey Burke will likely be the biggest beneficiary of this news and is worth owning in most leagues for his scoring prowess, while Joe Ingles and Elijah Millsap will see more minutes as well. Hood can be dropped in most leagues, but we will update his status once we know more.
Apr 1 - 1:33 PM

Derrick Favors (back) went through shootaround on Wednesday, and he is probable to play vs. the Nuggets.

Favors has missed the past two games for the Jazz, but his owners will be pumped to have him back in a fun matchup with Kenneth Faried and the Nuggets. We will update his status if we hear anything else, but he should see his normal allotment of minutes as the starting power forward. Trevor Booker will move to the bench and can be dropped in most leagues.
Apr 1 - 1:26 PM

Zach Randolph (elbow) was unable to practice on Wednesday, but he still expects to be fine for Friday's game vs. the Thunder.

Randolph doesn't appear to be in any danger of missing Friday's game, and the Grizzlies are probably holding him out of practice as a precaution. We will pass along any additional further information, but with two more full days of rest, Randolph can be penciled into all lineups.
Apr 1 - 1:22 PM

J.J. Hickson is battling knee soreness and he is questionable to play vs. the Jazz on Wednesday.

The Nuggets haven't played since Saturday, so it's a little concerning that he is having trouble with his knee. Hickson actually started last game due to the absence of Danilo Gallinari (rest), but the Nuggets have nothing but ping pong balls to play for so they will likely err on the side of caution. If Hickson sits, Jusuf Nurkic may rejoin the starting lineup and could see major minutes if he can avoid foul trouble. Expect another update closer to tip-off.
Apr 1 - 1:15 PM

Kevin Martin (hamstring) might be able to play on Wednesday vs. the Raptors, but he should definitely be ready to play on Friday vs. the Magic.

Martin is going to see how his hamstring feels after his afternoon nap, but he certainly didn't sound confident that he would play. The Wolves' injury report is just ridiculous right now, and Martin's owners should have a backup plan ready. if he does indeed sit on Wednesday, Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger will continue to see major minutes.
Apr 1 - 1:11 PM

Kyle Lowy (back) will not play vs. the Wolves on Wednesday, and he is considered doubtful to play vs. the Nets on Friday.

Lowry has already said that he won't rush back from injury, so it's safe to drop him in most leagues. Greivis Vasquez will continue to draw the start and is worth a look if you need help in assists and 3-pointers, while DeMar DeRozan and Lou Williams will continue to receive a boost in value with Lowry on the shelf.
