Latest Headlines

Nikola Pekovic scored 24 points on 6-of-12 shooting (12-of-16 FTs) with eight rebounds and one steal in the Wolves' 95-93 loss to the Raptors on Friday.

Godzilla was moving people around at will tonight and should do so for the rest of the year. Andrei Kirilenko scored 20 points on 8-of-10 shooting with a full line, and Ricky Rubio went for 13 and 12 with five boards in the loss.

Jahlil Okafor (right knee soreness) will not play against the Cavs on Friday or the Raptors on Sunday.

There's a good chance the 76ers just hold him out for the rest of the season. Plus, the team will likely be trying to trade him based on how they've had better success when Okafor is out of the lineup. Richaun Holmes will look to build off his career-high 25 points while Shawn Long backs him up. Holmes should be owned in all leagues while Long is worth a look in deeper formats.

Robert Covington (right knee) will not make the trip for games on Friday and Sunday as doctors continue to evaluate results of his MRI.

He's already missed one game with his right knee soreness and had an MRI on Wednesday. Considering the 76ers are in the mix for the No. 4 to No. 8 spot in the lottery, they may just hold Covington out to get a longer look at Justin Anderson and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot. Covington's fantasy owners may have to consider dropping him while Anderson makes for a solid pickup the rest of the week.

James Harden (left wrist) said he'll play on Thursday against the Blazers.

He had his shooting wrist wrapped at shootaround and he has been playing through it since Mar. 18 when he took a nasty spill at Denver. "It will get better but if I keep banging on it and keep falling on it then it's going to keep going back too square one," Harden said Thursday morning. "I try to limit banging on it and keeping it away from contact, it's kinda hard because it's my left hand. I do a lot with my left hand." For now, his fantasy owners can plug him in there as he attempts to go for MVP.

Will Barton is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets due to foot soreness.

Barton has seen his minutes drop with Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari healthy, so this new foot issue will give his owners even more incentive to drop him. If Barton sits on Friday, Jamal Murray could get a nice bump in minutes off the bench, but standard-league owners should probably look elsewhere.
Mar 30 - 1:37 PM

Brandon Ingram (knee) will not play on Thursday vs. the Wolves.

While he was listed as questionable, coach Luke Walton made it sound like he didn't have a chance of playing in this one. The Lakers aren't considering shutting him down, so his next chance to play is on Saturday vs. the Clippers. The Lakers will start D'Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Corey Brewer, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac. David Nwaba should get some extended run off the bench with Ingram out.
Mar 30 - 1:16 PM

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said he won't rest any players on Thursday.

This means LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving will be a full go. Iman Shumpert (knee) and Richard Jefferson (knee) will play, while Kyle Korver (foot) is still out . The Cavs do play again on Friday vs. Philly, so a DNP-rest could be coming for James, Love and Irving if they see a lot of minutes tonight.
Mar 30 - 11:47 AM

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said Marcin Gortat "needs to play better."

"Definitely needs to play better but we’ve got some options," Brooks said. Those "options" are Jason Smith, Ian Mahinmi and Markieff Morris, as the Wizards have been playing more small ball and Gortat has seen his minutes fall off since the All-Star break. In fact, he hasn't played in the fourth quarter of four straight games. He's slumping at the worst possible time for fantasy owners and is a drop candidate if there's a hot free agent available.

Chris Paul scored 27 points during a 133-124 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, 13 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

The Clippers just smashed to match a season-high 133 points in this win. Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Paul and J.J. Redick reached the 20-point mark in the same game for the first time ever. CP3 appears to be out of his shooting slump and has now made 5-of-10 from deep in his last two, but there was never really much concern to begin with. Moving forward, the Clippers have a lot going on with playoff seeding, trailing the No. 4 seed Jazz by 1.5 games while holding a slim 1.0 lead over the Thunder. That should allow CP3 to log plenty of minutes in his team's final eight games.
Mar 30 - 2:01 AM

Blake Griffin scored 26 points with 10 rebounds, nine assists and two steals against the Wizards on Wednesday.

The Clippers offense was on fire and Blake's bucket with 5:43 left in the third made the Clippers the fastest team to 100 points in a game this season -- Lawler's law worked again today. Griffin's numbers were trending down with only 17.7 points per game over his previous 10, which has knocked him down to just fifth-round value per game on the year. Hopefully, this big game gets him going again.
Mar 30 - 1:55 AM

J.J. Redick scored a season-high 31 points with one assist and seven 3-pointers against the Wizards on Wednesday.

Nobody told the Wizards that Redick can shoot a little bit, and maybe they thought he wasn't playing despite his ankle injury from the weekend. Redick should also be a bigger part of the offense in the short term now that Austin Rivers (hamstring) is going to miss time. He was trending down, but now he's trending back up due to the Rivers injury.
Mar 30 - 1:43 AM

Coach Doc Rivers said Austin Rivers (hamstring) "will be out for a little while" and will not play on Thursday against the Suns.

He has hamstring soreness and the Clippers won't need to rush him back now that J.J. Redick is healthy. Redick is coming off a season-high 31 points and should benefit the most until Rivers comes back. Jamal Crawford figures to pick up some minutes and perhaps Raymond Felton plays a little more SG.
