Ersan Ilyasova (illness) and Ekpe Udoh (ankle) are probable to play on Friday against the Hawks.

Ilyasova was a late scratch on Wednesday when John Henson went off, but he is expected to play on Friday. It's possible Henson will still get extended run if Larry Sanders (back, questionable) can't suit up. Meanwhile, Udoh is on track to return from his sprained ankle and has been eyeing Friday all along.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Giannis Antetokounmpo did it all during Wednesday's road win in Boston, scoring 22 points with nine rebounds, three assists, three steals, three blocks and two 3-pointers.

Giannis finished 8-of-17 from the field, and the only area in which he wasn't dominant was free throw shooting -- he went 4-of-7 from the stripe. He earned well-deserved praise from Celtics coach Brad Stevens before the game. "I don't know if I've ever seen anybody like him [in transition]," Stevens said. "Obviously, LeBron is the guy you would compare [him] to with the size, the length, the speed, the ability to change direction and finish." As a reminder, he's still just 22 years old.

Terrence Ross played well in a tough loss on Wednesday, hitting 9-of-17 shots with five 3-pointers for 23 points, two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block.

The efficiency, 3-pointers and defensive stats combine to make this one of T-Ross' best lines of the season, and he logged 45 minutes in an eventual overtime defeat. Aaron Gordon chipped in 13 points, five boards and four steals, and Nikola Vucevic had 11 points, 16 boards and two blocks, but it wasn't enough to beat the one-man wrecking-crew named Russell Westbrook.

Russell Westbrook followed up Monday's heroics with another astounding performance, dropping 57 points (21-of-40 FGs, 9-of-11 FTs), 13 rebounds, 11 assists, six 3-pointers and three steals in a comeback overtime win vs. Orlando on Wednesday.

Westbrook led a furious charge to send this game into OT, capped by a clutch 3-pointer against two defenders to tie the game (see the link below). This was the highest-scoring game ever with a triple-double and Westy now has 38 of them on the year, three behind Oscar Robertson's single-season record. Magic swingman Evan Fournier advocated Westbrook as a "co-MVP" with James Harden before the game, and fantasy owners will also be hard-pressed to make a distinction between those two studs.
Mar 29 - 10:29 PM

Darren Collison, Buddy Hield, Tyreke Evans, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein will start against the Jazz on Wednesday.

With Kosta Koufos resting again, the Kings will go back to Skal here. The rookie has been a disaster in a past handful of games, but now he gets a tough matchup against the Jazz.
Mar 29 - 10:27 PM

Andrew Harrison (right ankle) is doubtful to return against the Pacers on Wednesday.

The Grizzlies are going to be a little thin tonight and will be giving a few extra minutes to Troy Daniels. If Harrison needs to miss time, they might get Wade Baldwin in the rotation again. There's little fantasy value changing here.
Mar 29 - 9:49 PM

Matt Barnes will start and Patrick McCaw will come off the bench against the Spurs on Wednesday.

The Warriors will go away from McCaw after his 0-of-12 against the Spurs in the last game against them back on Mar. 11. Barnes figures to play minutes in the 20s, but he's not really a fantasy option.
Mar 29 - 9:26 PM

Gordon Hayward (quad) will play and Dante Exum will start against the Kings on Wednesday.

He's back after missing just one game due to a knee to his quad from Austin Rivers. Hayward went through shootaround today and he did try to play through the injury initially, so Hayward should be close to 100 percent. His return should take minutes from Joe Ingles, Joe Johnson and maybe even Rodney Hood.
