Dario Saric has officially withdrawn from the June NBA draft.

ESPN's No. 11 ranked prospect, Saric was seemingly a lock to go in the top 14 picks. Instead, he'll spend another year abroad (which he was planning to do regardless), and he'll look to enter the draft again in 2014. After saying he wasn't sure if he was ready or not, Saric apparently feels that he's not quite there.

Jeff Teague (ankle) and the remainder of the Hawks starters are expected to play on Monday against the Bucks.

However, "more rest" is expected on Tuesday, and that should have been obvious considering the Hawks have clinched the No. 1 seed and are on a back-to-back set. After Tuesday, the Hawks are off until Saturday, so those relying on Atlanta for fantasy contributions while fighting for their lives may want to look elsewhere.

For the second time in a week, Al Jefferson had fluid drained from his left knee.

And now we know why Jefferson hasn't looked right recently. His knee, in addition to his groin, is obviously a major concern, and the fact that he's had to have it drained twice in a week is not a good sign as the Hornets head down the stretch of the regular season. If he is forced to miss any time or have his minutes limited in any way, Bismack Biyombo would see an increased role with guys like Cody Zeller and Marvin Williams also playing more as Charlotte goes small.

Cody Zeller (shoulder) went through shootaround and is expected to play against the Celtics on Monday.

After Zeller was spotted shooting left-handed on Saturday, this is a very positive development, especially with Al Jefferson (knee/groin) playing at less than full strength. It's not clear what Zeller's playing time will be in his first game back, but Marvin Williams owners should be paying close attention.

Blake Griffin (elbow) admitted that he was a "a little swollen, a little sore, but OK" after taking a blow to the elbow on Sunday.

Griffin banged his elbow in what was the hardest shot he's sustained since returning, and although it sounds like he'll be fine, it's certainly worth monitoring considering what he's been through this season. For now, there is nothing to suggest it's a serious concern.

Paul George (leg) is still awaiting medical clearance before making his potential season debut.

George has passed all of the tests to play, but the medical staff has not cleared him. The fact that George hasn't received clearance from the team's medical staff should have several pumping the brakes on his possible return. While everyone has been trying to guess when or if George will be back, nobody really knows. He's not worth stashing in almost any format.

Ricky Rubio (ankle), Gorgui Dieng (facial contusion) and Kevin Martin (hamstring) are all questionable to play on Monday.

The Timberwolves are notoriously terrible with their injury updates, and this doesn't really help owners at all. All three players could very well be facing game-time decisions. If Rubio sits, Zach LaVine will start at point guard, if Dieng doesn't play, Justin Hamilton will likely start at center and if Martin is out, expect Lorenzo Brown to draw another start at shooting guard. As a starter, LaVine is averaging 11.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.7 assists, a steal and 0.9 triples on 41 percent shooting.

Dwight Howard (knee) will not play on Monday against the Raptors.

Howard was already ruled out of the contest, and this is just a reminder that he's not cleared to play in back-to-back sets. Without Howard available, the Rockets will have to rely on starting Joey Dorsey inside, going small often and Josh Smith playing all of the minutes he can handle.

Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) and Donatas Motiejunas (back) are both expected back before the end of the regular season, according to Rockets GM Daryl Morey.

That would be great news for a Rockets team that is shorthanded on its frontline. Although neither player has a specific timetable or circled date in an attempt to return, it's encouraging to hear both are making progress. When each is back in the fold, Josh Smith will obviously lose some of his luster.

Luol Deng's knee swelled up at halftime of Sunday's win.

Deng did not play in the second half, and when asked about how he felt, Deng said they'd just take it day-by-day in an attempt to get all of the swelling out of the area. Right now, he sounds very iffy for Tuesday, leaving James Ennis as a possibility to start in his place. Ennis started the second half for Deng on Sunday and finished with 16 points, six rebounds and two threes on 5-of-7 shooting in 24.5 minutes.

Brandon Knight (ankle) did not have a noticeable limp after Sunday's game, but his status may be in jeopardy for Monday's road game in Portland.

Suns coach Jeff Hornacek reportedly said, "I would guess he wouldn't play." The report suggests that Knight will miss Thursday's game in Golden State, but it makes more sense that Hornacek was referencing Monday's game, the second half of a back-to-back set. Either way, Knight's owners should be on red-alert for a potential DNP.

The Thunder won a critical game in Phoenix on Sunday behind Russell Westbrook's 33 points (10-of-29 FGs, 12-of-14 FTs), nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block.

Westbrook now has 24 games with 30+ points this season and he's racking up gaudy fantasy lines on a nightly basis, though tonight's production was tainted by a lousy FG percentage. Kevin Durant (foot) is done for the season and Serge Ibaka (knee) won't return until mid-April at the earliest, leaving Westbrook to single-handedly carry the Thunder in the playoffs. So far, so good, as he's staked the Thunder to a 2.5-game lead over the No. 9 seed Pelicans.
