In addition to the pinched nerve in his neck, Paul Pierce is now dealing with a bone bruise on his left knee.

The injury was sustained prior to Wednesday's win over the Pacers. Pierce said that the bone bruise is "not a problem," but he shot just 4-of-15 shots en route to just 13 points on Wednesday. It's something for owners to keep an eye on, but it's not expected to keep The Truth out of the lineup.

Marvin Williams will start at power forward with Cody Zeller coming off the bench against the Nets on Wednesday.

It's a matchup-based move against a smaller Brooklyn lineup. Williams and Zeller will likely play a similar amount of minutes tonight, so there's no need to adjust projections or fantasy value. In his previous 17 starts, Williams averaged 6.7 points, 3.4 boards, 1.3 assists and 1.3 treys, which obviously isn't great. Plus, the Hornets might switch back to Zeller starting over the weekend.

Steven Adams (hand) will not play vs. the 76ers on Wednesday.

Enes Kanter gets another start without any significant competition for minutes, and the matchup vs. Philly makes him a solid option in all formats. Scott Brooks was coy about who would start once Adams is healthy, but either way Kanter is the center to own in OKC.
Mar 4 - 6:26 PM

Anthony Davis (shoulder) will play against the Pistons on Wednesday and will not have a minutes restriction.

He aggravated his shoulder injury back on Feb. 21 and only needed five games off. Davis admitted he's eager and nervous about his return, so he might not be his usual self. Still, his fantasy owners obviously have to start him. Alexis Ajinca and Norris Cole lose a little bit of value.
Mar 4 - 6:24 PM

Hornets coach Kemba Walker (knee) could return to action in one week, according to coach Steve Clifford.

Walker was originally aiming to return by Mar. 16 and this would put him ahead of schedule, conceivably playing vs. Sacramento on Mar. 11. He needs to be picked up wherever he's available, as he should immediately displace the red-hot Mo Williams in Charlotte's starting lineup. Walker has been cleared for basketball activities without restrictions and we'll pass along updates as he gets back to practicing this week.
Mar 4 - 6:23 PM

Russell Westbrook (face) will not have a minutes restriction on Wednesday against the 76ers.

He'll have a mask on tonight and should be ready to be unleashed against poor Ish Smith and Isaiah Canaan. Westbrook will look to put up another triple-double tonight and we like his chances. Start him.
Mar 4 - 6:22 PM

Anthony Davis (shoulder) is warming up to play against the Pistons on Wednesday.

He is a game-time decision for this game and there should be an update within the next hour. The Pelicans are almost certainly going to want him to be discomfort-free, so he could wind up sitting. We'll pass along the updates as they become available.
Mar 4 - 6:13 PM

Channing Frye will come off the bench on Wednesday with Dewayne Dedmon taking his place in Orlando's starting lineup.

Frye has posted the second-worst defensive efficiency rating of any Magic player under interim coach James Borrego, which is the root cause of the switch. "He's trying defensively," Borrego said. "Offensively ... he gives our guards space. He gives Nik [Vucevic] room and space to operate." Frye will still be a part of the frontcourt rotation but his already limited upside takes a hit with this move to the bench.
Mar 4 - 6:06 PM

Kyle Lowry (rest) will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

The team is still calling it "rest" despite how he has a hand injury. Lowry is likely going to miss one more game and should be considered questionable to play against the Hornets on Friday. With Lowry out, it'll be Greivis Vasquez making his third start in a row. In his previous two, he averaged 13.0 points, 5.5 boards, 0.5 steals and 3.0 treys. He's worth starting in standard leagues tonight.
Mar 4 - 5:59 PM

Kelly Olynyk (ankle) will return against the Jazz on Wednesday and come off the bench.

He has been out since January with a severe ankle sprain. Olynyk made it through most of practice back on Feb. 28, so he should be able to play close to 24 minutes tonight. With Olynyk back, Jae Crowder and Jonas Jerebko are going to lose playing time. Olynyk should be owned in all standard leagues, especially with Jared Sullinger out for the season.
Mar 4 - 5:37 PM

Tobias Harris (knee) is questionable to play on Wednesday, according to Magic beat writer John Denton.

Harris was limited during Tuesday's practice and can't seem to shake this knee injury. He was originally expected to play on Wednesday so there's some cause for optimism, but his status may not be determined until pre-game warmups. If he doesn't play there will be more opportunities for guys like Aaron Gordon (ankle), Moe Harkless, Andrew Nicholson, and more shots available for Orlando's go-to scorers Nikola Vucevic and Victor Oladipo.
Mar 4 - 5:29 PM

Roy Hibbert (rest) will not play against the Knicks on Wednesday.

Perhaps the Pacers are a little worried about Hibbert falling on his face in the second half again. While he did play well against the sub-par Philly team on Sunday, Hibbert struggled in his first four game games after the break. He is still worth owning in all leagues and should be fine for Friday. Ian Mahinmi will start and is not worth streaming in most leagues tonight.
