Kevin Durant was a one-man wrecking crew in Sunday's 93-91 win over the Grizzlies with 35 points, 15 boards, six assist, one steal and two blocks in 44 minutes.

KD scored 12 of his points in the final eight minutes of the game and he put the team on his back. "I just gotta get it," Durant said in the post-game interview on ABC and he's right. His shots per game have jumped up to 23.6 attempts per game since Russell Westbrook went down, which is well above his regular-season average of 17.7 per game. He's going to be busy against Memphis' tough defense in this series.

Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play against the Hawks on Sunday.

This hamstring strain will cost him at least two weeks and the Nets haven't indicated much on his progress. Kilpatrick did have an interesting tweet about his time on the sidelines today. "Our road trips be memorable," Kilpatrick tweeted. "Learning, getting better, and analyzing the game of basketball." It sounds like he'll be studying a little while longer. K.J. McDaniels has seen some minutes while Randy Foye has slightly benefited.

Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play against the Nets on Sunday.

Millsap will now miss at least one week for his knee tightness. The Hawks are a disaster without Millsap and have lost all six games without him this season. His fantasy owners will have a decision on their hands for the upcoming week, but he is day-to-day. With him out, Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to be a main option while Taurean Prince and Thabo Sefolosha get some added run.

LeBron James (eye) could be a game-time call for Saturday against the Wizards and is listed as questionable.

He suffered a scratched cornea on Friday in the third quarter and was able to return to the game. This is a home game on a back-to-back set, so there is a chance he doesn't play in this important game for Eastern Conference seeding. If you're into factoring in the Las Vegas spreads, it does seem to be more towards the Wizards than you might expect, so perhaps the folks in Vegas think LeBron could miss this one. We should have an update at around 6:00 EDT.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Even with Kevin Love on the floor (249.1-minute sample), Irving’s rate increases 9.8% to 42.4% when LeBron is off and he delivers 1.39 FanDuel points per minute. Love gets a smaller bump, but he enjoys a 6.1% increase in FD ppm. Irving would be a top option in all formats. Love is riskier, but should get solid minutes and the Wizards are 24th in DvP against PFs; he’d be a great tournament option.

Boris Diaw will start against the Clippers on Saturday.

The Jazz had the same plan against the Clippers in their last game with Diaw as the starter. In that one back on Mar. 13, Diaw scored five points with three boards in just 21 minutes, so there's not much to like here from a fantasy perspective. Joe Johnson scored 14 points in 28 minutes in that game, as well.

Danny Green (rest) will not play against the Knicks on Saturday.

It'll be his first game off since November and it comes on a non-back-to-back set. Green has played 28.5 minutes per game in March, which is by far the most he's played in a full month this season. With Green out tonight, Jonathon Simmons figures to get some extra run and could get some added value in garbage time tonight.

Ryan Anderson (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Thunder.

This news is not surprisingly. Anderson appeared to badly sprained his ankle Friday night when he landed on the foot of DeMarcus Cousins. At this point, it is unknown if Anderson will miss additional game(s) after Sunday, but the Rockets won't place too much importance on a few relatively meaningless regular season contests with the playoffs less than three weeks away. Eric Gordon may be inserted into the starting lineup on Sunday, with Trevor Ariza sliding to power forward. Sam Dekker will also see an uptick in minutes.
Mar 25 - 1:43 PM

Carmelo Anthony (sore left knee) and Derrick Rose (sore right foot) are all listed as questionable in the game notes for Saturday's matchup vs. the Spurs.

Melo sat out Thursday's game vs. the Blazers, but it was widely believed that was primarily for rest purposes. As always, it is unwise to read too much into the game notes. Thus, we will have to wait for a formal update from coach Jeff Hornacek following the team's shootaround on Saturday. Mindaugas Kuzminskas will likely draw the start if Anthony is unable to suit up.

LeBron James suffered a scratched cornea in his right eye on Friday and may miss Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

LeBron was poked in the eye by Jeremy Lamb in the final minute of the third quarter of Friday night's win over the Hornets. He was able to return to the game but then fell hard on his lower back in the fourth quarter. After the game, LeBron said his vision was blurry and was unable to keep his right eye open. "If coach decides to give me a game off [Saturday], it's not because I'm resting," said James. "It's because I'm banged up." Check back, as we should have an official update from the team following Saturday morning's shootaround.

Stephen Curry handed out a season-high 12 assists during a 114-100 win over the Kings on Friday, adding 27 points, seven rebounds, six steals and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

The Warriors assists were all over the place early with 20 in the first half, which was the second straight time they did so in the first half. As for Curry, he also made his 277th triple this season for the third most in NBA history -- he has the first and second most. Not that anyone should've been worried about Curry's shooting slump, but now he's made 52.5 percent from deep with 5.3 treys per game over his last four outings. Expect a big finish until the Warriors lock up their top seed.
Mar 25 - 3:24 AM

Draymond Green scored a season-high 23 points with four rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers against the Kings on Friday.

It's just his fourth 20-plus scoring game of the season. Green has scored in single digits for each of his last four games, which was somewhat surprising due to how he did have some added usage while Kevin Durant (knee) was out. Green's assists have still been great and the Warriors handed out 37 dimes in this win. The Warriors still only have a 2.5 game lead over the Spurs, so they may not rest too many games until they lock up the No. 1 seed.
Mar 25 - 3:17 AM

Buddy Hield turned in career-highs 22 points, eight boards and seven dimes against the Warriors on Friday, adding two steals and four 3-pointers.

He's about as hot as he could be, matching his previous career-high 21 points on Wednesday. The Kings are resting their point guards now to allow Hield to have the ball more, and he does have at least 32 minutes in each of his last four. He could disappoint his next time out, but Hield looks like an add in standard leagues.
