Updating a previous item, David Stern confirmed that the NBA's Board of Governors has officially voted down the proposed relocation of the Kings to Seattle.

The long, drawn-out Seattle saga is finally over -- at least with the Kings, who will remain in Sacramento and likely be sold to a group headed by Vivek Ranadive. Stern said the league will talk to the Maloof family within the next 48 hours about selling the team to Ranadive's group. Stern also said there are no plans to expand and put a franchise in Seattle at this time and the league would wait to re-open those talks until the next round of TV negotiations. The NBA's relocation committee previously recommended against relocating the Kings' move during an April meeting.

X-rays were negative on Al Jefferson's sprained left ankle, and he was in good spirits after Sunday's game.

"Everything seemed normal so it's just an ankle sprain," Jefferson said. He was in a great deal of pain after the injury and left the court in a wheelchair, however, and the veteran center could easily miss extended time here. If he does get some DNPs, that would open up a few extra minutes for Lavoy Allen, Kevin Seraphin and Rakeem Christmas.

Myles Turner came up huge vs. Philly on Sunday with 17 points (7-of-9 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), 16 rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in 34 minutes of action.

Turner is the 16th player in Pacers history to block at least 150 shots in a season, and swats have been a bedrock for his fantasy value this season. He's also picked up the pace scoring-wise with 18.5 points on 16-of-25 shooting in his past two games, giving the Pacers some much-needed versatility on offense. Turner has been an absolute steal relative to his Average Draft Position.

Shawn Long came off the bench on Sunday for 15 points, 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes during a road loss in Indiana.

Jahlil Okafor can't shake his right knee soreness and Philly has zero incentive to rush him back, so Long could become a staple of the rotation. He's now averaging 15.3 points and 7.7 rebounds in Philly's past three games. The team liked him enough to give him a multi-year contract, and fantasy owners should give him a look while Okafor is on the shelf.

Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

X-rays were negative and coach Quin Snyder said that Hayward was "fine" after the injury occurred on Saturday, but Hayward did ask to check out of the game. Utah holds a slim one-game lead over the Clippers for the No. 4 seed, so Hayward will do everything he can to stay on the court, but owners should check for updates following shootaround.
Mar 26 - 8:48 PM

Russell Westbrook notched his 36th triple-double of the season during Sunday's loss to the Rockets, racking up 39 points, 13 assists, 11 rebounds, three 3-pointers and five turnovers in 39 minutes.

As per usual, Westbrook was extremely aggressive at getting to the line, going 10-of-16 from the charity stripe while connecting on 13 of his 24 shot attempts for a 62.8 true shooting percentage. Westbrook now needs just six more triple-doubles to surpass Oscar Robertson's single-season record, a feat that seems highly attainable with 10 more games on the schedule for OKC.
Mar 26 - 7:29 PM

Chris Paul missed a potential game-winner vs. the Kings on Sunday, but he still finished with 17 points (4-of-9 FGs, 6-of-6 FTs), nine assists, four rebounds, three 3-pointer, one steal and one block.

The Clippers came in half a game behind Utah for the No. 4 seed and homecourt advantage in the first round, but they blew a huge lead for an inexplicable loss at home today. The good news is that the tight race should encourage Doc Rivers to play his key veterans heavy minutes down the stretch, reducing the likelihood of DNP-CDs.
Mar 26 - 7:12 PM

Willie Cauley-Stein hit a game-winning layup with 1.8 seconds remaining on Sunday, finishing with eight points, 14 rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 33 minutes of action.

Sacramento snapped a four-game losing streak in dramatic fashion, as WCS corralled a miss to give his team the late lead -- Chris Paul subsequently missed a jumper that could have won it, and the Kings went home with a truly shocking road win. Cauley-Stein is rolling along with top-75 roto value over the past few weeks.
Mar 26 - 7:05 PM

Lou Williams seemingly couldn't miss during Sunday's win over the Thunder, racking up 31 points, seven triples, three boards, four assists, one steal and three turnovers in 31 minutes off the bench.

Williams was en fuego all game long and didn't even miss his first shot until the fourth quarter rolled around. He ended his evening going 11-of-15 from the field, 7-of-8 from beyond the arc and 2-of-2 from the charity stripe to give him an elite true shooting percentage of 97.6. Mike D'Antoni hinted prior to the game that Williams will be looking at an expanded role with Ryan Anderson (ankle) set to miss the next two weeks, so it looks like Sweet Lou is back to being a must-own player in all leagues.
Mar 26 - 7:02 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) will not play vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

Dante Cunningham will start and Solomon Hill stands to benefit from Cousins' absence, while both Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday will also have less competition for usage. Cousins was essentially a game-time decision tonight, so there's a chance he'll return vs. the Jazz on Monday. Check back for updates after New Orleans' shootaround, assuming they hold one in the second half of a back-to-back set.
Mar 26 - 6:40 PM

Marc Gasol (left foot strain) has been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Warriors, and Zach Randolph will start in his place.

Brandan Wright should also see minutes, and Memphis even recalled Deyonta Davis from the D-League for emergency depth tonight. Gasol should be considered day-to-day, with his next chance to play coming in Sacramento on Monday.
Mar 26 - 6:36 PM

James Harden put up a 22-point, 12-assist double-double during Sunday's win over OKC, but exited the game with 30 seconds left in the fourth after a hard fall on his left wrist, and did not return.

Harden added five boards, two triples and five turnovers through his 36 minutes of floor time, but this wrist issue is definitely a concern. Harden's left (shooting) wrist was heavily wrapped up in ice after the game, and he acknowledged during his post-game interview that he initially suffered the injury during Monday's win over Denver. Head coach Mike D'Antoni said it's something Harden will likely be dealing with the rest of the season, and admitted that he'll rest the MVP-candidate if need be. For now, we'll consider him questionable for Tuesday's game vs. Golden State, and if he's out, Lou Williams would likely emerge as the primary beneficiary. Stay tuned.
