Latest Headlines

J.J. Redick sprained his right ankle in the final minutes of Saturday's game, but he was able to return.

He had just made two straight 3-pointers when he landed on Jarrett Jack's foot and limped into the locker room, but he trotted back out a few minutes later. The Bucks play in Sacramento on Sunday and we're forced to consider him questionable for that game since his ankle could swell up overnight. The fact that he returned for the final two minutes tonight is very encouraging, but owners should check for updates on Sunday afternoon.

Brandon Ingram (knee tendinitis) will play on Friday vs. the Wolves.

With the Lakers tanking, Ingram's knee issue must be very minor if they are letting him play through it. With averages of 15.2 points (on 52.8 percent shooting), 4.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists over his last nine games, he's a decent option if you don't mind his poor free throw percentage. The Lakers will keep their same starting five of Jordan Clarkson, D'Angelo Russell, Ingram, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac.

Buddy Hield is probable for Friday's game vs. the Warriors with a right quad contusion.

The Kings must be confident about Hield playing, as they just announced that Tyreke Evans, Darren Collison and Anthony Tolliver are resting. Hield is coming off a 21-point game on Wednesday and his owners can pencil him into lineups for now.

Darren Collison, Tyreke Evans and Anthony Tolliver are all out for planned rest against the Warriors on Friday.

This is pretty much status quo for the Kings as they get a look at their youth. Ty Lawson should get big minutes in the first unit while the Kings piece it together in the second unit. Collison isn't worth owning now that he's basically resting every other game.

Joel Embiid had successful minor arthroscopic surgery to address a meniscus tear in his left knee on Friday.

"The overall status of Joel’s lateral meniscus and his cartilage is very good, Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache said. "Today's procedure focused on removing a small portion of the meniscus that was responsible for his symptoms. The recovery program that has been established targets Joel transitioning back to full weight-bearing in approximately two weeks, at which point a conservative approach to his rehabilitation will be introduced." Embiid is expected to resume basketball activities this summer, so he should be a full go for training camp. There will be several updates on his progress throughout the offseason.

Derrick Jones Jr. is in the starting lineup against the Celtics on Friday.

He was reportedly not expected to play, but he'll be out there to start. Jones Jr. hurt his right wrist on Thursday night and needed X-rays. He is likely to be limited today and isn't a fantasy option.

T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) will not play on Friday vs. the Celtics.

He wasn't expected to play, but now we have official confirmation. With Derrick Jones Jr. (wrist) also out, the Suns will only have eight available players. The Suns play again on Sunday, but Warren's owners may have to drop him in must-win situations.
Mar 24 - 7:23 PM

Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not play against the Bulls on Friday night.

The team will give him treatment on his sore knee during the game. Okafor's right knee soreness has been ongoing for most of the past 12 months and there's a good chance he misses additional time. Richaun Holmes should start and play big minutes as a must-start option in fantasy -- he's a strong DFS play, of course. Shawn Long should back him up with some Dario Saric at the five, as well.
Mar 24 - 6:36 PM

John Henson (thumb) will not play against the Hawks on Friday.

It'll be his second game out of the lineup. Spencer Hawes was in the rotation for the last game and scored 10 points, so he should be looking at a similar role. Henson was expected to be re-evaluated today, but there's no update on his status going forward. Besides Greg Monroe as a low-end guy, this is a situation to avoid in most leagues.
Mar 24 - 6:27 PM

Danilo Gallinari (knee) will start and Mason Plumlee will move to the bench for Friday against the Pacers.

The Nuggets will go back to their old lineup with Gallo and Wilson Chandler at the starting forward spots. Coach Mike Malone usually plays Gallo huge minutes and he has played well since the break, so expect him to hit the ground running. Gallo's return should take away from Plumlee and Kenneth Faried.
Mar 24 - 6:20 PM

Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson will start against the Hornets on Friday.

The Cavs have a back-to-back with tonight's game and tomorrow with the Wizards coming to Cleveland. Coach Ty Lue said Love is not restricted to back-to-back sets anymore, so he could play in both games this weekend. Go ahead and get them in your lineups for tonight, but keep an eye out for some limited minutes.
Mar 24 - 6:16 PM

John Wall (migraine) will play Friday night against the Nets.

He is not 100 percent and did not go through shootaround. As he arrived to the arena, he had a gallon of water, was wearing sunglasses and didn't exactly look healthy for this one. His fantasy owners in season-long leagues have to start him, but DFS owners may want to be careful on using him even in a plus matchup.
