Latest Headlines

Carmelo Anthony (knee) will make his return Wednesday night against the Magic.

Anthony was listed in the Knicks' starting lineup, which is about as strong a sign as you can get that Melo will play tonight. With Tyson Chandler (knee) out at least a week, the Knicks are in desperate need of a healthy start to get them back on track. We expect Melo will play as many minutes as his health allows and owners should get him into their lineups immediately.

Tony Allen will return from his one-game suspension vs. the Rockets on Wednesday.

Mar 4 - 12:55 PM

Robert Covington (elbow) is doubtful to play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday according to head coach Brett Brown.

Covington suffered the injury vs. the Pacers on Sunday and was held out of Monday's game vs. the Raptors, but it's disappointing to see him listed as doubtful despite dealing with a simple elbow contusion. JaKarr Sampson will draw the start if Covington can't go, but Hollis Thompson and Jerami Grant are slightly more appealing for owners in deeper leagues. We will continue to pass along any further updates on Covington's status.
Mar 4 - 12:45 PM

Kevin Martin (illness) will play vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Martin is reportedly feeling a lot better after sitting out vs. the Clippers on Monday, and his owners can safely plug him back into all lineups. Gary Neal, who started Monday's game against the Clippers, will shift back to the bench and can be dropped across the board.
Mar 4 - 12:34 PM

Nikola Pekovic (ankle) will try to give it a go against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

While he did say that ankle has progressed, Pekovic will test out his ankle prior to the game before making a final decision regarding his status. If Pekovic is unable to go tonight, Gorgui Dineg becomes locked in as a must-start option in all leagues, while rookie Adreian Payne will see an uptick in minutes as well. Given the uncertainty, owners in daily leagues would be wise to avoid Pekovic tonight.
Mar 4 - 12:32 PM

Zach Randolph (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

Z-Bo wasn't able to play on Tuesday vs. the Jazz, so his owners should have a backup plan ready. Check back for an update prior to tip-off before making any roster decisions, and expect Kosta Koufos to draw another start if Z-Bo is unable to play. To be clear, Koufos is only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Mar 4 - 12:09 PM

Jrue Holiday (leg) is no longer in a walking boot, but he said that he is still experiencing pain and swelling in his lower right leg.

Holiday is expected to be reevaluated in the near future, so we should be able to provide another update shortly. However, It's definitely not a good sign if he is still dealing with pain and swelling, and it doesn't sound like he is anywhere close to returning to action. If Holiday continues to remain on the shelf, Tyreke Evans will continue to run the point for the Pelicans, while Norris Cole will continue to see extended minutes off the bench. Holiday is no longer a must-own player in standard leagues.
Mar 4 - 12:04 PM

Kevin Durant (foot) said that there is "no doubt' that he will be able to return before the end of the regular season.

He has yet to return to practice and has already been ruled out for Wednesday vs. the 76ers and Thursday vs. the Bulls, so his owners will have to continue to be patient. Durant was seen getting up some shots before last Thursday''s game vs. the Suns, so hopefully he will begin to ramp up his activities soon. Kyle Singler will continue to start at SF for the Thunder in the meantime, but Russell Westbrook is the obvious beneficiary any time KD sits out.
Mar 4 - 11:57 AM

Russell Wilson (face) will play vs. the 76ers on Wednesday.

He still has some swelling and discomfort in his face, but it's a fantastic sign if the Thunder are going to allow him to play against the lowly 76ers. Westbrook is arguably the hottest player in the NBA right now and is coming off three straight triple-doubles, so his owners have to be feeling pretty good about themselves right about now. D.J. Augustin will shift to the bench and can be dropped outside of deeper leagues. 76ers' PG Isaiah Canaan should be trembling right now.
Mar 4 - 11:44 AM

Anthony Davis (shoulder) participated in the team's shootaround and is now a game-time decision vs. the Pistons on Wednesday.

He is expected to test out his shouder prior to tip-off, so his owners will have to check back for an update before activating him in any lineups. Davis missed the last five games because of a nagging shoulder sprain, but he should see his normal allotment of minutes if he is cleared to play with the Pelicans in the hunt for a playoff berth. Alexis Ajinca and Dante Cunningham's value takes a significant hit following this news, and they can now be dropped outside of deeper leagues.
Mar 4 - 11:39 AM

The Pelicans have signed G Elliot Williams to a 10-day contract on Wednesday.

He participated in the team's shootaround and is expected to be available for Wednesday's game vs. the Pistons. However, Williams likely won't be in the rotation right out of the gate, so owners in deeper leagues can simply monitor him from the waiver wire for now.

Goran Dragic (back) will play on Wednesday vs. the Lakers.

He was unable to practice on Tuesday and is said to be dealing with back spasms and a sore shoulder, but it's great to see that it won't force him to miss any action. Dragic is coming off a 21-point performance vs. the Suns on Monday, so his owners can confidently deploy him in all active lineups.
