Nikola Pekovic returned from his abdominal strain on Sunday with 13 points, six rebounds and two blocks in 24 minutes, even hitting two clutch FTs in the Wolves' comeback win.

Pek missed the previous eight games and his conditioning is a work in progress, but he didn't have any medical limitations tonight. The Wolves have a stellar rest-of-season schedule and Pek should once again be a fixture in fantasy lineups.

Jahlil Okafor scored a season-high 28 points against the Knicks on Saturday with 10 rebounds, one assist and no turnovers in 29 minutes.

He made 11-of-19 from the field and all six from the line for a terrific scoring line. Okafor was coming off a rough game on Friday against the Wizards, but he's struggled against Marcin Gortat for basically his whole career. With Joel Embiid (knee) still in street clothes and possibly missing more than two games, maybe Okafor get start to get it going. While this might be his best game all year, he's still worth owning to see if he can keep it going.

Willie Reed has been diagnosed with a right calf strain.

He will not return to Saturday's game vs. the Pacers and will be re-evaluated on Sunday morning. He finished the game with four points, one rebound and one steal in 10 minutes. This diagnosis is good news, but he's not out of the woods yet and we'll know more about his status when the Heat run some tests on him Sunday. If he misses time, Hassan Whiteside will have a higher floor and James Johnson could play more minutes as the backup center.

Terrence Ross showed why the Magic traded for him during a 105-86 win over the Hawks on Saturday, scoring 24 points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

After a 4-of-17 dud on Thursday, Ross had it going big time with shooting touch. Ross has been living on his jump shot and actually hasn't made any shots at the rim in his two games with Orlando, which does spell trouble for his consistency from an efficiency standpoint -- only 11.7 percent of his shots come from within three feet on the season. Coach Frank Vogel has said he wants him to be aggressive and to score off the dribble, so expect more close shots to come. Ross should be owned in all standard leagues with his new opportunity.

Stephen Curry is starting as expected on Saturday vs. the Nets.

He got the day off at Friday's practice because he has some general soreness and there was a slight concern that he would be rested tonight, but he will play and should be a usage rate monster with Kevin Durant (hand) on the shelf. Deploy Curry like you normally would.

Paul George was ejected from Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

He picked up two technical fouls and was ejected with 8:49 left in the third quarter. George finishes the game with 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting with one rebound and one assist in 19 minutes. He's in no danger of being suspended for Monday's game vs. the Rockets.

Frank Kaminsky scored a game-high 23 points during a 99-85 win over the Kings on Saturday, adding a career-high 13 rebounds with three assists, two steals and a career-high five 3-pointers.

He's been all the Hornets could've hoped for as a center. Ever since the Hornets got stomped in Oakland on Feb. 1, coach Steve Clifford has talked up how well Kaminsky has performed closer to the basket on defense. On offense, he's really hitting his stride lately, averaging 19.8 points, 7.6 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.2 steals and 3.0 treys in his last five. While he won't be this good, he has to be owned right now.

Patrick McCaw is starting in place of Kevin Durant (hand) on Saturday vs. the Nets.

It sounds like the Warriors are simply being cautious with Durant against the weakest team in the NBA, so McCaw is just a streaming option in deeper leagues tonight. In three previous starts this season, the rookie averaged 10.0 points, 2.7 assists, 1.7 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 1.3 3-pointers.
Feb 25 - 8:50 PM

Updating a previous report, Patrick Beverley (groin) will play on Saturday vs. the Wolves.

Wow. He was ruled out less than an hour ago, but the Rockets changed their mind after he worked and told them that he was feeling better. Beverley will stick in the starting lineup and there's no word of any restrictions. We'll let you know how he fares after the game.
Feb 25 - 7:59 PM

Skal Labissiere grabbed a career-high 13 rebounds against the Hornets on Saturday, adding eight points, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes.

He played nine minutes in the first half and the final 14 minutes with this game getting into garbage time. Labissiere looks to be the power forward of the future for the Kings with Anthony Tolliver as his main competition for minutes. After his career-high 12 points on Thursday, he's shown off as a scorer in the past two games with some catch-and-shoot to go with putting it on the floor. Skal is clearly trending up and is already worth a look in 16-team leagues.
Feb 25 - 7:58 PM

Updating a previous item, Lance Thomas will start and not Kyle O'Quinn against the 76ers on Saturday.

This makes a lot more sense than the previous report. Thomas started the second half on Thursday and played 31 minutes, so he should get plenty of run. He's till only a deep-league stream with Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) having a chance to play Monday.
Feb 25 - 7:44 PM

Clint Capela will start against the Wolves on Saturday.

Coach Mike D'Antoni has been mixing it up with his five man and will go with Capela against Karl-Anthony. Towns. Capela has played 24.3 minutes per game this month, but he may be closer to 30 in this matchup. He should be owned in standard leagues.
