Arron Afflalo's season-ending hamstring injury is a slight tear and not a strain.

That makes the decision to shut him down look like a much more cut-and-dry choice, but it doesn't change anything as he was already out. Moe Harkless and Tobias Harris are must-own, must-start players while Beno Udrih is going to get extra burn with Afflalo out of the lineup.

Willie Cauley-Stein hit a game-winning layup with 1.8 seconds remaining on Sunday, finishing with eight points, 14 rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 33 minutes of action.

Sacramento snapped a four-game losing streak in dramatic fashion, as WCS corralled a miss to give his team the late lead -- Chris Paul subsequently missed a jumper that could have won it, and the Kings went home with a truly shocking road win. Cauley-Stein is rolling along with top-75 roto value over the past few weeks.

Lou Williams seemingly couldn't miss during Sunday's win over the Thunder, racking up 31 points, seven triples, three boards, four assists, one steal and three turnovers in 31 minutes off the bench.

Williams was en fuego all game long and didn't even miss his first shot until the fourth quarter rolled around. He ended his evening going 11-of-15 from the field, 7-of-8 from beyond the arc and 2-of-2 from the charity stripe to give him an elite true shooting percentage of 97.6. Mike D'Antoni hinted prior to the game that Williams will be looking at an expanded role with Ryan Anderson (ankle) set to miss the next two weeks, so it looks like Sweet Lou is back to being a must-own player in all leagues.

DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

Dante Cunningham will start and Solomon Hill stands to benefit from Cousins' absence, while both Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday will also have less competition for usage. Cousins was essentially a game-time decision tonight, so there's a chance he'll return vs. the Jazz on Monday. Check back for updates after New Orleans' shootaround, assuming they hold one in the second half of a back-to-back set.
Mar 26 - 6:40 PM

Marc Gasol (left foot strain) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Warriors, and Zach Randolph will start in his place.

Brandan Wright should also see minutes, and Memphis even recalled Deyonta Davis from the D-League for emergency depth tonight. Gasol should be considered day-to-day, with his next chance to play coming in Sacramento on Monday.
Mar 26 - 6:36 PM

James Harden put up a 22-point, 12-assist double-double during Sunday's win over OKC, but exited the game with 30 seconds left in the fourth after a hard fall on his left wrist, and did not return.

Harden added five boards, two triples and five turnovers through his 36 minutes of floor time, but this wrist issue is definitely a concern. Harden's left (shooting) wrist was heavily wrapped up in ice after the game, and he acknowledged during his post-game interview that he initially suffered the injury during Monday's win over Denver. Head coach Mike D'Antoni said it's something Harden will likely be dealing with the rest of the season, and admitted that he'll rest the MVP-candidate if need be. For now, we'll consider him questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Golden State, and if he's out, Lou Williams would likely emerge as the primary beneficiary. Stay tuned.

Rajon Rondo racked up 18 points on 8-of-11 shooting, nine rebounds, nine assists, one 3-pointer and one steal in 34 minutes on Sunday, as the Bulls ran away with a win in Milwaukee.

Rondo has scored double-digit points in consecutive games just once in March, but he's been solid in other areas with averages of 3.8 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.6 steals. He's even hitting 1.4 triples per game on 51.5 percent from deep this month, and is knocking down 83.3 percent of his free throws (albeit on very few attempts). He could cool off at a moment's notice, but the playing time should be there with Chicago chasing a playoff spot.
Mar 26 - 6:16 PM

Jimmy Butler dished out a career-high 14 assists vs. the Bucks on Sunday, adding 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting, one 3-pointer, six rebounds and three steals in 39 minutes.

The Bucks threw plenty of double-teams at Butler tonight, daring other guys to beat them, and Jimmy's teammates rose to the challenge -- the Bulls shot 54.1 percent tonight. "Nine more [games], right?," Butler asked before the game. "We gotta have 'em. As we said before the game, as we'll say tomorrow, and the day after that, probably the day after that. We gotta have 'em." He's doing his part with double-digit assists in three straight games, to the delight of his fantasy owners.

Nikola Mirotic sank 11-of-14 shots vs. Milwaukee on Sunday, tying his season high with 28 points to go along with six 3-pointers, eight rebounds and one assist in 35 minutes.

Mirotic is averaging 23.7 points in his past three games, showing some offensive consistency at the end of a maddeningly up-and-down season. He's had strong finishes before in his career and is playing with visible confidence, so you might as well deploy him and hope he stays hot. Just don't be surprised if he posts the occasional dud over Chicago's final eight games.
Mar 26 - 6:14 PM

Taurean Prince matched a career-high 17 points in his first NBA start against the Nets on Sunday, adding six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Not a bad start and obviously not having Paul Millsap, Kent Bazemore and Thabo Sefolosha helped him get some added run. Plus, it helps to go against the Nets with those extra minutes. Prince still has a lot of work to do as a scorer and he really struggles around the rim, but the opportunity it there for him right now and he's been adept at adding defensive stats. With Millsap and Bazemore in doubt this week, Prince is worth a look in standard leagues.

Kemba Walker made 10-of-18 from the field for 31 points against the Suns during a 120-106 win on Sunday, adding four rebounds, nine assists and four 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

That's his 13th game with 30-plus points this season to match his career high from last year. Even with a really rough six-game slump earlier this month, Kemba is performing very well since the break with averages of 24.2 points, 3.7 boards, 5.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 3.7 treys. The main reason why is Kemba has put up an awesome 70.3 effective field goal percentage on his catch-and-shoot attempts in his previous 16 games -- also 71.4 percent on his one-dribble treys. He's ballin'.

Monta Ellis will start for Indiana on Sunday, with C.J. Miles coming off the bench.

Ellis started the second half on Friday so this doesn't come as a total surprise, and having another guy capable of creating his own offense should take some pressure off Paul George. Ellis is trending up but he's still just a low-end option, while the move to the bench makes it tough to trust Miles in standard leagues.
