Sources tell ESPN that Georgetown sophomore SF Otto Porter is the No. 2 player on the Cavs' draft board.

The Cavs are set in the backcourt with Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters, so an all-around wing like Porter would make plenty of sense. He averaged 16.2 points, 7.5 rebounds, 1.4 3-pointers and 1.8 steals last season en route to Big East Player of the Year honors. Cleveland will have the third-most ping-pong balls in the May 21 draft lottery.

Draymond Green (rest) will not play Tuesday vs. the Clippers.

David Lee will draw the start in Green's place tonight, and he makes for a decent streamer option in deep leagues for those seeking some points and rebounds. Marreese Speights will also have the opportunity for some extended minutes off the bench with Green out. The Warriors play again on Thursday, and Green should be back in uniform for that one.

George Karl said that he was unsure who his starters will be for Wednesday's game vs. Houston.

Rudy Gay has already been ruled out for Wednesday's game, and DeMarcus Cousins (rest) spent Monday's game on the sidelines, but Karl said earlier in the week that he may give Cousins 1-2 games of rest. The Kings will be on the road for Wednesday's game, and then they return to Sacramento for two home games, so it would appear Cousins is certainly in jeopardy of missing Wednesday's game. If Cousins sits on Wednesday, there will be more opportunities on offense for guys like Ben McLemore, Ray McCallum, and Jason Thompson. Reggie Evans, Derrick Williams, Omri Casspi, and Nik Stauskas would also have the opportunity for extended minutes. Stay tuned.

Pelicans head coach Monty Williams said on Tuesday that Jrue Holiday (leg) is getting close to making a return to the court.

While Williams continues to hint at Holiday being close to a return, he still has not been able to go through a full practice, so it's extremely unlikely he'll be ready to go for Wednesday's game against the Lakers. He'll also be with a minutes limit upon his return, so this is a situation that should be avoided in standard leagues.
Mar 31 - 2:20 PM

Ryan Anderson (knee) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers.

Anderson went through his first full-court scrimmage on Tuesday and now has a chance to play against the Lakers. We'll update his status after Wednesday's shootaround, but fantasy owners with an extra roster spot will want to see if Anderson is available on waivers.
Mar 31 - 1:42 PM

Derrick Rose (knee) participated in some five-on-five scrimmages on Tuesday.

Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said Rose looked good and added that he's "in a good place" with rehab. While Rose could see game action before the end of the season, he's still likely to see some DNPs in that case and is tough to recommend as an add in standard fantasy leagues. Aaron Brooks owners will want to keep a close eye on this situation as he's due to lose value if and when Rose is on the court.
Mar 31 - 1:21 PM

Deron Williams (illness) will play against the Pacers on Tuesday.

This is good news for fantasy owners after Williams missed practice on Monday and he can now be slotted into lineups for Tuesday. Jarrett Jack will continue to serve as Williams' backup and is no longer a potential spot-start option on Tuesday.
Mar 31 - 1:13 PM

Patrick Beverley had surgery on his left wrist on Tuesday and the surgery has been deemed a success.

Beverley will be in a cast for the next 10 weeks and will need four months of recovery. While the Rockets have Jason Terry, Pablo Prigioni, and Nick Johnson to fill in for Beverley, none are a fantasy option outside of the deepest of leagues. James Harden will have to carry even more of the load for the Rockets for the rest of the season and will have a good chance to bolster his case for MVP.
Mar 31 - 12:21 PM

Greg Monroe (knee) has been officially ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.

It wouldn't be a huge shock to see the Pistons shut Monroe for the rest of the season at this point as they're firmly out of the playoff picture. Anthony Tolliver will again pick up the start on Tuesday, while Monroe can be dropped by fantasy owners who are fighting to get to the next round of their playoffs.
Mar 31 - 12:16 PM

Kevin Durant (foot) had bone graft surgery for the fifth metatarsal of his right foot on Tuesday and is expected to miss the next four to six months.

While we've yet to see a team say a surgery was unsuccessful, it's worth noting that the Thunder deemed the surgery a success. The optimistic end of Durant's timetable would put him back on the court by training camp, while the longer end of of that timetable would having him returning at some point in October. We'll be keeping close tabs on Durant's recovery, but the 2015-16 season will mark the first in years where he's not the top option in fantasy drafts.
Mar 31 - 11:38 AM

Deron Williams (illness) was present at shootaround on Tuesday.

Williams missed practice on Monday, so it's good news to see him able to go through shootaround before Tuesday's game against the Pacers. We'll update this status closer to game-time, but Jarrett Jack would be in line for a spot-start and would make for a solid fantasy play if Williams is unable to go.

LeBron James shared some insight on his relationship with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love.

While article below gives more of a peek behind the curtain of the Big 3's relationship, James shared some interesting thoughts about his relationship with his two star teammates. "People get so infatuated with the best of friends, things of that nature," James said. "First of all, I've got three very good friends in this league, and that's Carmelo [Anthony], and that's C.P. [Chris Paul], and that's D-Wade. And after that I have a bunch of teammates. I have guys I ride for every day." Relationships aside, James is averaging 24.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, 6.2 assists, 2.0 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.8 three-pointers over his last five games and is a must-start player any time he takes the court.
