Larry Sanders and Monta Ellis reportedly "nearly came to blows in the locker room after Game 3" of the Bucks playoff series against Miami, sources told CBS Sports.

It's awfully strange that this report would just come out now, so we're taking it with a grain of salt. The players had to be "separated," but the fight wasn't serious enough to prompt disciplinary action for either player. If that's the case, it sounds like this is being terribly overblown. Ellis reportedly "took umbrage" with Sanders saying the team needs to focus on the present and not next season, but it's a moot point with the Bucks watching from home.

Kevin Durant (ankle) will not play in Sunday's game against the Mavericks.

This will be his sixth straight game out of the lineup and it is clear that KD's ankle is a real concern. However, he was able to go through shootaround on Sunday so it is safe to assume that he is somewhat close to returning. Perry Jones will likely get another start but is not an attractive option in most leagues. We will pass along further updates as needed.

Carmelo Anthony's status for Sunday's game with Portland is unclear after he logged 46 minutes on Saturday in a loss to the Kings.

We will leave him off of the injury report for now, but owners will want to check back for updates considering how much his knee has impacted him this season. The Knicks have no reason to risk Anthony's health considering how their season has gone, so be prepared to have a backup plan ready. Owners would be wise to sell-high before it's too late, as there is a real possibility of Melo shutting it down for the season in the near future. Expect Tim Hardaway Jr. to take as many shots as he pleases if Melo sits this one out.

Amare Stoudemire (knee) is doubtful to play on Sunday vs. Portland.

To be clear, we don't think that he has any real shot to play in this one and Amare admitted that he is really struggling with his knee. "I’ve been playing with a little soreness for the past week or so and been playing somewhat through it," Stoudemire said. "By doing that, it made it worse. I’ll try to rest and see if it gets better." Owners can check back before tip-off to verify, but plan on seeing extended minutes from Quincy Acy, Jason Smith, and Cole Aldrich if Amare sits.

Luc Mbah a Moute is dealing with a strained left calf and has no timetable for a return.

He was forced to miss Saturday's game, and knowing how cautious the 76ers are it appears that he will likely see additional time on the sidelines. Mbah a Moute actually had some decent value in deeper leagues, but that run is likely over and owners can plan on looking elsewhere. Henry Sims started on Saturday, but is only worth a look in deeper leagues.

Draymond Green flirted with a five-by-five line against the Wolves on Saturday with four points, eight rebounds, six assists, three blocks and a career-high six steals in 32 minutes.

He just seems to find a way to fill it up and he remains as the Western Conference version of Jimmy Butler -- to a slightly lesser degree. In case you needed convincing, David Lee's return is not hurting Green's fantasy value and that shouldn't be the case all season.
Dec 28 - 1:57 AM

Zach LaVine handed out a career-high 14 assists against the Warriors during a 110-97 loss on Saturday, adding 12 points, four rebounds, one steal and five turnovers.

It was just his second double-double of his career. LaVine is not shooting the ball well, making just 37 percent from the field over his last 11 games. With Ricky Rubio (ankle) set to return in a couple weeks, LaVine is even less of an attractive fantasy option.
Dec 28 - 1:54 AM

DeMarcus Cousins scored a season-high 39 points in 32 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday with 11 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and five turnovers during a 135-129 overtime victory.

He made 14-of-27 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line for a ridiculous usage rate of 50.5 tonight. Cousins raised his season usage to 34.0 and only trails Russell Westbrook, Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade in that category. Advanced stats don't need to tell you that Boogie is the best starting center in fantasy and hopefully he is done with illnesses.
Dec 28 - 1:39 AM

Darren Collison made 9-of-10 from the field with three 3-pointers for 27 points against the Knicks on Saturday with one rebound, 10 assists and two steals in 43 minutes.

The Knicks are not good and that shooting line is good for a 105.0 effective field goal percentage. Collision has shot the ball well over his last five, making 56.7 percent from the field for averages of 19.4 points, 5.0 assists, 2.4 steals and 2.6 triples in 38.2 minutes per game. There's a good chance this might be the apex of his fantasy value.
Dec 28 - 1:35 AM

Cole Aldrich had his best game of the season on Saturday with 18 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in just 24 minutes.

He fouled out and certainly was handled by DeMarcus Cousins, but Aldrich's arrow is pointing up. He was tremendous in his brief time in summer league and is arguably the best healthy two-way big man on NYK, so he might have some short-term value while Amare Stoudemire is out. He might have value beyond STAT's return, too.
Dec 28 - 1:10 AM

It was Khris Middleton's turn for a big game on Saturday in a loss to the Hawks, scoring 21 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

It's almost like coach Jason Kidd is flipping a coin on who he's giving his minutes to. Middleton scored just two points on Friday and wasn't over 24 minutes in any of his previous four games, so it's hard to be bullish on him. He's not a waiver-wire target in standard leagues.
Dec 28 - 12:45 AM

Jeff Teague scored 25 points in a 90-85 win over the Bucks on Saturday with eight rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

Needless to say, he's back. Teague missed three games earlier this month and played in just 24 minutes in each of his last two games. He was playing well before the injury and he should keep the ball rolling against the Cavs on Tuesday.
