The Celtics have denied the Nets permission to speak with Doc Rivers regarding their head coaching vacancy, sources told ESPN Boston.

This only furthers our belief that Rivers will either coach the Celtics next season or won't coach at all. Although Danny Ainge has said Rivers is expected to return, a notion that's been supported by co-owner Wyc Grousbeck, Rivers hasn't come out and confirmed his intent to do so, but Ainge said "Doc has told me he's coming back." Nevertheless, the overwhelming expectation is that Rivers returns to Boston next season, and the Celtics have no interest in letting him out of his contract to coach elsewhere. Doc has three years and $21 million remaining on his deal. Interestingly, Rivers reportedly turned down an offer from the Orlando Magic to be the team's president last season.

Coach Rick Carlisle said the Mavs "need" to take an extended look at Seth Curry as a point guard going forward.

Interesting. Curry played mostly the two during a win over the Clippers and he's played a lot of two since his breakout. Curry was not a very good point guard earlier in his career, and the change to the SG is part of the reason he's been so good. Regardless, Curry has a big role coming his way and he should continue to be a must-start player in all formats. Curry turned in a strong Thursday game, scoring 23 points with three rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in a win over the Clippers.

DeMar DeRozan scored 40 points during a 101-84 win in Miami on Thursday, adding six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 36 minutes.

He just scored 42 points on Tuesday to make this the first time he's scored 40-plus points in consecutive games in his career. The Raptors have had tremendous success when DeMar drops 40, going 8-0 in those instances. DeRozan did tweak his ankle earlier in the game, but obviously it wasn't affecting him too much. The Raptors are playing solid ball again with a four-game winning streak to put them just 0.5 games behind the third-seeded Wizards.

Delon Wright scored 13 points in a 101-84 win at Miami on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and two turnovers in 24 minutes.

The younger Raptors came to the rescue to earn this comeback victory with Wright posting a +26 in +/- today. We've seen Wright play important minutes before and did so against John Wall back on Mar. 3, but he still wasn't able to get consistent run even after his coach talked him up. This is probably only going to be a timeshare for Wright and Cory Joseph, so most fantasy owners may want to steer clear.

Hassan Whiteside rolled his ankle at the end of Thursday's game.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said he doesn't know how severe the ankle injury is, so we'll have to wait on the details. Whiteside had a right ankle injury before the All-Star Game and there's a chance that injury affected him for arguably the worst part of his season. As for this new injury, the schedule helped the Heat out this week because they won't play again until Sunday. Whiteside already was playing with 13 stitches in his hand, finishing with 16 points, 14 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in this loss to the Raptors.

J.J. Barea was ejected for a flagrant 2 foul on Blake Griffin in the third quarter on Thursday.

This was probably one of the worst flagrant 2 fouls of the season. Barea only have Griffin a shove and may have made some contact to his face. He won't be suspended for this one and will be ready for Saturday against the Raptors. Barea finished with five points, three assists and one 3-pointer. He isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 23 - 10:14 PM

Ron Baker, Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Willy Hernangomez will start against the Blazers on Thursday.

The Knicks are extremely shorthanded with Carmelo Anthony (knee), Derrick Rose (foot) and Lance Thomas (hip) not playing. Kuzminskas should be getting some heavy run as the starter, but it's tough to pick him up unless Melo gets ruled out for multiple games. Kristaps Porzingis is going to be doing some serious heavy lifting.
Mar 23 - 9:38 PM

Derrick Jones Jr. (right wrist) is getting X-rays on Thursday.

He had a hard fall on a drive to the basket and came out on the next possession. Jones Jr. had a trainer look at him for a couple minutes before going to the locker room. We should have an update shortly.
Mar 23 - 9:33 PM

Nerlens Noel will start and Yogi Ferrell will come off the bench against the Clippers on Thursday.

The Mavs will go with Noel as a start for just the second time. He blew up for 15 points and 17 boards in his first start, so hopefully coach Rick Carlisle plays him more than his 17 minutes from Tuesday. Get him in your lineup.
Mar 23 - 8:36 PM

Lance Thomas (sore right hip) will not play against the Blazers on Thursday night.

Thomas played 32 minutes in a start on Wednesday and apparently picked up an injury along the way. With Thomas and Carmelo Anthony (knee) out, the Knicks will likely play more Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn next to each other. We should see more Mindaugas Kuzminskas and a little bit of Justin Holiday at the three.
Mar 23 - 8:34 PM

Carmelo Anthony (sore left knee) and Derrick Rose (sore right foot) will not play against the Blazers on Thursday.

It will be Melo's second half off this month and his first March DNP was also due to his sore left knee. With the Knicks quickly falling out of the playoff race, the likelihood of Melo missing games goes up each day. With him out, the Knicks will give some big minutes to Mindaugas Kuzminskas while Kristaps Porzingis should be busy.
Mar 23 - 8:29 PM

T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) will not play against the Nets on Thursday and Derrick Jones Jr. will start.

Warren's foot injury will keep him out of action for the first time in 2017. This is not the same foot injury that Warren fractured last year, so hopefully it's just a day-to-day thing. Jones Jr. should get a decent amount of run in the first unit while Jarell Eddie should see some added run.
