David West didn't participate in Tuesday's practice, but did some work afterwards and looked good.

He appeared to take elbows to his back and not show any discomfort, and could be nearing a return in the next couple games. Whether he'll play on Wednesday is anyone's guess, but once he's back in action, Tyler Hansbrough's value will likely take a substantial hit.

Tony Parker failed to score in 24 minutes vs. Golden State on Wednesday, going 0-of-4 from the field with two assists, two steals, two turnovers and one rebound.

This was Parker's second scoreless game of the season, and it's the fourth time in seven games that he's scored four points or fewer. The veteran recently conceded that he's no longer needed to be aggressive offensively, and is instead looking to set up teammates, but he struggled in both of those aspects tonight. He faces another unique challenge vs. Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on Friday.

John Wall scored 41 points against the Clippers during a 133-124 loss on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

It's the most points he's scored on the road in his career, but the Wizards couldn't stop a nosebleed on defense during this loss. Wall's scoring is through the roof these days with at least 34 points in three straight while he's also seen 3.0 steals per game and plenty of other stats along the way. While the Wizards can't defend right now, Wall's fantasy owners have to be loving these high-scoring, fast-paced games.

Mike Conley scored 16 points in the first quarter of Wednesday's home victory, which he finished with 36 points, a career-high seven 3-pointers, six assists, four steals, and three rebounds in 38 minutes.

Memphis scored a season-high 38 points in the first quarter alone tonight, thanks largely to Conley's explosion, and his 16 points matched a career-high for a single quarter. He's the alpha and omega of the Grizzlies' offense with Marc Gasol (foot) out of commission, and owners can expect more big lines if Gasol can't suit up on Friday and Sunday.

Markieff Morris was ejected on Wednesday.

He went up for a block attempt on DeAndre Jordan and the refs called a foul on him, but he obviously didn't agree to lead to the ejection. He shouldn't be suspended for this infraction going forward. Morris finished with 14 points, four rebounds and two 3-pointers.
Mar 30 - 12:29 AM

Marco Belinelli lit up the Raptors on Wednesday for 21 points, making 7-of-11 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs with five assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.

The veteran sharp-shooter had just one turnover in 27 minutes, and his efforts helped the Hornets escape with an essential road win in Toronto, keeping their slim playoff hopes alive. Frank Kaminsky added 13 points, three 3-pointers, four boards and two assists tonight, and those are the only two Hornets reserves worth considering in most fantasy leagues.
Mar 30 - 12:00 AM

The Hornets used a big fourth quarter to overcome the Raptors on Wednesday, aided by Marvin Williams' 18 points, 12 rebounds, four 3-pointers, one assist and one steal.

Williams was coming off a poor game vs. the Bucks, but he compensated tonight with efficient 6-of-11 shooting and just one turnover in 35 minutes. The veteran has been a mediocre option on the season, due to a slow start, but over the past few weeks he's racking up top-50 roto value. He's been particularly good in 9-cat with an amazing two turnovers in his past 314 minutes of action.
Mar 29 - 11:57 PM

Kemba Walker needed 25 shots to score 19 points on Wednesday, making seven of his attempts with three 3-pointers, four rebounds and two assists.

Aided by a strong bench effort, the Hornets managed to hang on for a 110-106 victory, their fifth win in seven games. They haven't been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but it wouldn't be a shock to see coach Steve Clifford give his veterans more rest if they drop a few games in the next week. That might not mean DNP-CDs, but even reduced playing time could have a major impact on fantasy matchups. We'll let you know if things start to trend in that direction.

Austin Rivers (sore left hamstring) will not return on Wednesday.

He went to the locker room in the second quarter and was ruled out approximately 15 minutes later. Thankfully, the Clippers do have J.J. Redick back for this game and Jamal Crawford can also help out. There should be slightly more Luc Mbah a Moute until Rivers can come back. Redick is the only guy worth owning in standard leagues.
Mar 29 - 11:39 PM

Josh Richardson busted out with a career-high five steals against the Knicks on Wednesday, adding 17 points, one rebound, one assist, one block and three 3-pointers.

There he is. Richardson has been knocking on the door for a big game and it finally came together. His averages over his last five do look pretty good, posting 12.2 points, 2.2 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.6 steals and 1.6 treys. He should be owned in all leagues going forward.
Mar 29 - 11:32 PM

Malcolm Brogdon helped the Bucks earn a win in Boston on Wednesday, scoring 16 points on 7-of-12 shooting with nine assists, four rebounds, one steal, one block and zero turnovers in 29 minutes.

Brogdon shot 3-of-3 from the field with two assists in the final 2:25 tonight, and he earned praise from opposing coach Brad Stevens after the game. "I have a lot of respect for Brogdon," Stevens said. "He's tough." Milwaukee did well to snag him in the second round of the draft, and the 24-year-old has instantly contributed to the success of both the Bucks and his fantasy owners.
Mar 29 - 11:23 PM

Khris Middleton broke out of his shooting slump on Wednesday, going 8-of-14 from the field with three 3-pointers for 19 points, six rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block.

Middleton came in shooting a combined 11-of-42 shooting in his past three games (26.2 percent), so this was a welcome change of pace. Milwaukee is in a virtual tie with the Hawks for the No. 5 seed, and just two games separate them from the No. 9 seed Bulls. They're playing for their postseason lives, in other words, so key guys like Middleton shouldn't have to worry about DNPs or rest down the stretch.
