Latest Headlines

Goran Dragic (rest) is expected to start against the Pacers on Saturday.

Kendall Marshall has started the last two games while a healthy Dragic received some unneeded rest by coach Lindsey Hunter. There's nothing official at this point, but it does appear that we have seen the last of Hunter the Dragon Slayer. Owners can put Dragic back in their lineup until further notice and Marshall can be cut in almost all formats.

Derrick Favors (back) will not play against the Thunder on Saturday.

Mar 28 - 8:03 PM

Al Jefferson (knee) and Mo Williams (knee) are good to go against the Hawks on Saturday.

We have no idea why the Hornets listed Al Jefferson as questionable, but he was grimacing a little bit last night due to his ailing knee. He'll likely have success against the ATL backups tonight.
Mar 28 - 7:11 PM

David Lee will start for Draymond Green on Saturday against the Bucks.

He played 31 minutes in his last start and scored 13 points on 4-of-12 from the field, but that was without Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry. When Lee is with those two in 138 minutes this season, he has a solid 19.4 usage rate, so he should still be able to produce. He's worth starting in standard leagues tonight. James Michael McAdoo and Marreese Speights should also play more.

Al Jefferson (knee) and Mo Williams (knee) are listed as questionable on the lineup sheet for Saturday.

Interesting. There were no indications of either guy missing this game, so we're still expecting them to play. Jefferson is still listed as the probable starter and should be fine. We'll provide another update to confirm Big Al is good to go.

Kevin Martin (hamstring), Anthony Bennett (leg) and Robbie Hummel (hand) are questionable to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

Martin said on Friday that he's hoping for his hamstring to heal by next week, so we still don't like his chances to play. Plus, the Wolves continue to list him as questionable as if they didn't even hear his comments. Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger benefit the most with Budinger serving as a solid add in standard leagues.
Mar 28 - 6:13 PM

Ricky Rubio (ankle) and Kevin Garnett (knee) are doubtful to play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

This is pretty much status quo for Rubio, who hasn't played in any of the previous five games and seven of the last eight. He is basically a shut down candidate and is not worth owning in standard leagues. Zach LaVine is a nice player to own if you're fine with sub-par shooting while Lorenzo Brown is also a low-end add for dimes and steals.
Mar 28 - 6:10 PM

Nikola Pekovic (ankle) and Gary Neal (ankle) will not play against the Pelicans on Sunday.

They Wolves continue to rule out Pek the day before games, so it's hard to like his chances of playing in the next week or even this season. Gorgui Dieng is going to continue his run as a must-start player while Justin Hamilton backs him up. Hopefully Hamilton can get more minutes.
Mar 28 - 6:07 PM

Dwyane Wade (knee) is questionable to play against the Pistons on Sunday.

He had his knee drained today and the Heat are hopeful to have him for the final 10 games of the season. Still, if he's not ready, they aren't going to play him at much less than 100 percent. His fantasy owners will have to check back for an update and might want to plan for him not being ready to go. Tyler Johnson and Mario Chalmers would get his minutes while Goran Dragic would run the offense.
Mar 28 - 6:01 PM

Shabazz Napier (hip) is doubtful to play against the Pistons on Sunday.

He may have suffered the injury on earlier in the week because he didn't play on Friday and the team is calling it "right hip pain." If the Heat are going to miss Dwyane Wade (knee, questionable) and Napier, there should be a lot of minutes going to Tyler Johnson and Mario Chalmers.
Mar 28 - 5:45 PM

Dennis Schroder, John Jenkins, Kent Bazemore, Mike Muscala and Elton Brand will start against the Hornets on Saturday.

The only mild surprise is Jenkins starting over Shelvin Mack and Thabo Sefolosha at shooting guard. Sefolosha only played 10.0 minutes per game in his last two, so he's likely still on a minutes limit. Expect Mack to get around 15 minutes at point guard with 10-15 more minutes coming at the shooting guard spot. Bazemore should see see 32-36 minutes and could get double-digit shot attempts with other stats, as well. Muscala could also be a threat for a double-double and is worth a look in daily leagues.
Mar 28 - 5:33 PM

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) could miss 7-10 days due to his ankle sprain.

This isn't a big surprise considering he wasn't in great shape on Friday following his injury. His fantasy owners should consider cutting him with only two more full weeks remaining in the season. Jeff Taylor should get some starts and most of the minutes, but there will be more scoring chances going to Marvin Williams and Gerald Henderson.
