Malcolm Lee was traded from the Wolves to the Golden State Warriors in a draft-day deal on Thursday and was later traded to the Phoenix Suns.

He was pretty much just a throw-in player to and from the Warriors in these deal. When the Wolves were decimated in the backcourt, Lee started 12 games and scored 5.4 points. He had surgery on his knee and hip in January and is a longshot to be a contributor for the Suns -- the team in which he started his career.

Brandon Knight (ankle) will play vs. the Thunder on Sunday, but he will come off the bench.

After an eight-game absence, Knight is finally back. His minutes will probably be held in check and he will might be a little rusty, but his owners will be pumped to have him back in their lineups. Marcus Morris will remain in the starting lineup for now, but his value could take a hit down the stretch. We will let you know how Knight holds up after the game.

Jared Dudley will not play vs. the Hawks on Monday in order to give his ailing back some extra rest.

Dudley has been able to play in the past two games for the Bucks, but they are wanting to be cautious with him since he had missed six consecutive games earlier in March. Dudley should be fine for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls, but he is still not a fantasy option outside of deeper leagues. Expect O.J. Mayo and Jerryd Bayless to see a few extra minutes off the bench Monday.

Michael Beasley is questionable to return on Sunday due to a bruised elbow.

The Heat are coming apart at the seams, beginning the night extremely short-handed before losing both Beasley and Luol Deng (knee) on Sunday. If Beasley misses any time, James Ennis and Henry Walker will be thrust into bigger roles out of necessity.
Mar 29 - 7:35 PM

Luol Deng suffered a left knee contusion vs. the Pistons on Sunday and will not return.

The Heat have had terrible luck with injuries this season, and knowing how cautious they tend to be with their players, it's possible that Deng's status could be in jeopardy for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs. If Deng is forced to miss any time, James Ennis, Michael Beasley (elbow) and Henry Walker would all have to step up on the wing. Deng finished with four points, two boards, one assist and one steal in 18 minutes.

76ers big man Furkan Aldemir started Sunday's game and finished with a career-high 11 points, 10 rebounds, one steal and zero turnovers in 27 minutes.

Aldemir is a tenacious rebounder whose overall rebound rate of 18.1 percent ranks second on the Sixers, behind only Thomas Robinson (23.1 percent). Unfortunately, Aldemir doesn't score (his previous career-high was four points) or contribute enough defensive stats to be a viable option in standard leagues. Just keep an eye on him for now.
Mar 29 - 7:14 PM

Vince Carter will start in place of Tony Allen (hamstring) on Sunday vs. the Spurs.

It will be Carter's first start this season, but it doesn't necessarily mean he will play big minutes. Carter can be left on the wire in most leagues, while Jeff Green will likely be the primary beneficiary off the bench tonight should be pretty busy on the offensive end.
Mar 29 - 7:01 PM

Head coach Flip Saunders is hopeful that Ricky Rubio (ankle) will be able to return on Monday vs. the Jazz.

Rubio has missed eight of the last nine games for the Wolves, so there are certainly no guarantees here. The Wolves are playing for ping pong balls and have no incentive to play Rubio at less than 100 percent, so there is no need for owners to overreact. If Rubio does return he will likely have a minutes limit, so his upside will be capped. Zach LaVine's value would take a hit if Rubio returns, but his owners should stand pat for now.
Mar 29 - 6:49 PM

Anthony Davis went to work against the Timberwolves on Sunday, scoring a game-high 28 points on 10-of-21 shooting, with nine rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block through 37 minutes of action.

After briefly exiting Wednesday's game against the Rockets with a shoulder injury, Davis has logged 41 and 37 minutes in his past two outings, so it doesn't look like this will be an issue at all moving forward. He was his usual fantastic self during Sunday's win, shooting a sterling 8-of-10 from the charity stripe, while committing zero turnovers, making this a true 9-cat gem. He's a fantasy goldmine, and as long as he can stay healthy, he'll arguably be the best player in fantasy hoops for many years to come.
Mar 29 - 6:46 PM

Kevin Love left Sunday's game vs. the 76ers with a back injury and will not be able to return.

Love has had problems with his back all season, but the Cavaliers didn't seem to be concerned after the game and the injury isn't thought to be serious. The Cavaliers are off until Thursday which should give him plenty of time to recover, but we will consider him questionable for that game vs. the Heat. If Love needs to miss any time, expect Tristan Thompson to be the primary beneficiary. Love finished with 10 points, 10 boards, one assist, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.
Mar 29 - 6:32 PM

Justin Hamilton logged 23 minutes of action on Sunday, scoring 11 points on 5-of-6 shooting, with five rebounds, one steal, one 3-pointer and one block.

Hamilton was forced into the rotation tonight with Gorgui Dieng (facial contusion) taking an early exit, and the 23 minutes marked the most floor time he's seen since returning from the migraine issues that sidelined him for four games earlier this month. He offers plenty of upside, and with Dieng's status currently uncertain for Monday's game vs. Utah, Hamilton is worth a speculative add in deeper leagues.
Mar 29 - 6:29 PM

Adreian Payne double-doubled on Sunday, putting up 14 points on 7-of-14 shooting, 11 rebounds, two steals, one assist and four turnovers over 36 minutes of action.

Payne was forced into heavy minutes with Gorgui Dieng (facial contusion) taking an early exit, and he responded very well to the increased floor time. With Dieng's status up in the air for Monday's game vs. the Jazz, Payne is worth a look as a streamer option in deep leagues.
