Coach George Karl said he's leaning toward starting Wilson Chandler and Kenneth Faried as his starting power forward and center in Friday's Game 3.

They'll be joined by Ty Lawson, Evan Fournier and Andre Iguodala. It's a highly unconventional lineup, but it's one the Nuggets can get away with because of the Warriors' small-ball approach. It's not like Karl was getting anything out of Kosta Koufos anyway, as he was averaging 3.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 0.5 blocks through the first two games of the series.

Taj Gibson (ankle) is not traveling with the Bulls on their current road trip, and he will remain sidelined for Friday's game against the Pacers.

We'll be considering Gibson doubtful Sunday's game vs. the Spurs as well, and Nikola Mirotic remains the primary beneficiary with Gibson sidelined. Mirotic has now scored in double figures for three consecutive games, and he'll look to keep up his stellar play tonight with a tough matchup against Indiana.

Mario Chalmers (knee) is a game-time decision to play against the Wizards on Friday.

Chalmers saw his playing time dip to 22 minutes on Wednesday, but they would need him with Luol Deng (thigh) unlikely to play. If Chalmers doesn't play, Tyler Johnson would likely pick up most of those minutes while Shabazz Napier would get minutes in the teens behind Goran Dragic.

Luol Deng (thigh) is doubtful to play against the Wizards on Friday.

The Heat are really in trouble here. Michael Beasley will get one more chance to show what he can do before his 10-day is up, but Henry Walker is the better bet for playing time. Plus, the Heat will have to give more minutes to Udonis Haslem with the Heat having an inability to play stretch fours because they're so thin. If you're feeling saucy, Walker could hit a bunch of treys tonight. Plus, Tyler Johnson may get more minutes in three-guard lineups, too.
Mar 6 - 5:33 PM

Evan Fournier (hip) and Luke Ridnour (hamstring) will not play against the Kings on Friday.

This will be Fournier's fourth game out of the lineup. With Willie Green also out tonight, the Magic will likely have to give more minutes to Aaron Gordon and maybe even Moe Harkless. Tobias Harris and Victor Oladipo will also be around 40 minutes tonight. Fournier can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 6 - 5:24 PM

Robert Covington (elbow) will play Friday vs. the Jazz.

Covington will come off the bench for this one, and he will have a difficult matchup against the Jazz, so that is something that should be considered for those playing daily leagues. There's no word on a minutes restriction, but owners of Covington looking to close the gap in the 3-point category can go ahead and get him active.
Mar 6 - 5:22 PM

O.J. Mayo (hamstring) will not play against the Wizards on Saturday.

This makes it a DNP for five of the last six games because of his hamstring issue. The Bucks tend not to be forthcoming for Mayo, so almost all of his fantasy owners should be looking to cut him and not deal with the headache. While he's out, Tyler Ennis will continue to stay in the rotation while Jerryd Bayless gets most of his minutes at shooting guard. Bayless is worth a look in 16-team leagues.
Mar 6 - 2:47 PM

Jamal Crawford (calf) and Matt Barnes (hamstring) did not practice on Friday and are not expected to play on Sunday against the Warriors.

This would be Crawford's second game out of the lineup after suffering his calf contusion on Monday. J.J. Redick logged a whopping 47 minutes in the overtime game on Wednesday and should be near 40 again vs. GSW. Austin Rivers also will see more playing time, but he's not a fantasy option in most situations. Crawford owners should stash him unless there's a red-hot add on the wire.
Mar 6 - 2:41 PM

Devin Harris (right hand) is doubtful to play against the Warriors on Friday.

He played 28 minutes in three of their last five games and Harris has become an underrated part of the Dallas rotation, especially with Chandler Parsons (ankle) out. Harris has played a big chunk of his minutes at shooting guard recently, which means the Mavericks might have to go with just a four-guard rotation of Monta Ellis, Rajon Rondo, J.J. Barea (thumb) and Raymond Felton because the forward rotation is already thin without Parsons. Barea is also up in the air and has only played next to Rondo for only 19 minutes in the last six games combined, so it's going to be interesting behind Ellis and Rondo. Felton probably gets the biggest increase in playing time from a percentage standpoint, but he's not worth using.
Mar 6 - 2:28 PM

Devin Harris (right hand) is officially being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Warriors.

Harris wasn't really able to move his hand following Thursday's loss to the Blazers, so we'd consider him closer to doubtful than questionable. If he's forced to sit, the seldom-used Raymond Felton could step into the rotation, but he can't be viewed as a viable option in most leagues.
Mar 6 - 2:10 PM

J.J. Barea (left thumb sprain) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Warriors.

With both Barea and Devin Harris (hand) questionable for Friday, Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis could be forced into heavy minutes, with Raymond Felton serving as the only backup at the point guard position. We'll continue to monitor this situation closely, but if both Barea and Harris are unavailable, Ellis would be worth a plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Mar 6 - 2:05 PM

Nick Young (knee) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Grizzlies, as expected.

This will be Young's fifth consecutive game on the sidelines, but he is said to be targeting a return for Sunday's game vs. the Mavericks, so we'll be monitoring his status closely. With Young out, there will be more opportunities on offense for Jeremy Lin, Wayne Ellington, and Wes Johnson. Lin has been playing very well lately, but given the tough matchup tonight, those playing daily leagues may want to look elsewhere for production.
