Mike Dunleavy has verbally agreed to a two-year, $6 million deal with the Chicago Bulls.

He's received interest from a number of teams, but said that he likes the idea of playing with Derrick Rose. Dunleavy would likely be a bench option for the Bulls with the emergence of Jimmy Butler. What's more, the deal with Dunleavy probably eliminates the chances of the Bulls bringing back UFA Marco Belinelli. Belinelli played 22 minutes per game in April with the Bulls, which seems like a fair expectation for Dunleavy next year.

Devin Booker exploded for a franchise-record 70 points during a 130-120 loss to the Celtics on Friday, adding eight rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

He was 21-of-40 from the field and 24-of-26 from the line to drop the most points in a 2016-17 NBA game and the most points ever against the Celtics. Booker is the youngest player ever to score at least 60 and is just the sixth player ever to hit the 70-point mark in a game (Bryant, Chamberlain, Thompson, Baylor, Robinson). He went crazy in the second half with 51 points, playing all 24 minutes with a 56.3 usage rate and a 72.4 true shooting percentage. It was pretty clear coach Earl Watson was looking to get Booker going with plenty of fouls to help Booker score so many late points and he was asked about it after the game. "Do something about it," Watson said. Maybe, we'll see a few more monster Booker games the rest of this season.

Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 25 points on Friday vs. the Bucks, but it wasn't enough as the Hawks lost their sixth straight game.

THJ was coming off a 29-point game on Wednesday and kept his foot on the gas tonight, hitting 8-of-17 from the field and 6-of-6 from the line with four assists, two rebounds, one block and three triples in 40 minutes. He's having a breakout season in Atlanta and will continue to eat in the absence of Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee). He's a must-start player in all formats right now. His owners can deploy him one more time this week and four times next week.

Marco Belinelli matched his season-high with 22 points, three rebounds, two assists and three triples in 32 minutes vs. the Cavaliers on Friday.

He has the hot hand right now and coach Steve Clifford is riding him. He scored 20 points in 21 minutes in his previous outing, but picked up a big chunk of minutes tonight with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in foul trouble. Belinelli hit 7-of-12 shots and made all five of his free throws, but with a playoff spot looking out of reach, the Hornets may be tempted to give Jeremy Lamb more burn at the expense of Belinelli. If he has another good game on Sunday vs. the Suns, give him a look since the Hornets play four times next week.

Ty Lawson and Kosta Koufos are starting vs. the Warriors on Friday.

The Kings are starting Lawson, Buddy Hield, Arron Afflalo, Kosta Koufos and Willie Cauley-Stein. Lawson was rested last game, but he's looking at a heavy workload tonight with Darren Collison resting this time around. He's still a low-end option going forward.

LeBron James scored 32 points with 11 assists and nine rebounds in Friday's 112-105 win over the Hornets, but he was poked in the right eye and is dealing with some swelling.

LeBron also took a hard fall tonight and landed on his back, but he did finish the game. Cavs reporter Jason Lloyd said James can barely open his right eye and that he is going to have his eyes/vision checked by a specialist. We'll look for more updates, but he should be considered questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Wizards. James finished 9-of-14 from the field and 14-of-16 from the line with two blocks, one steal and four turnovers in 40 minutes.

Elfrid Payton posted a triple-double against the Pistons on Friday, scoring 14 points with 11 rebounds, 10 assists and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

That's the fourth triple-double of his season and sixth of his career. On top of the increased output in dimes and boards, Payton is also up in efficiency with his 53.4 percent from the field and 85.0 percent from the line in his previous March games -- those are by far his best percentages in any full month this season. He's kind of peaking right now, so keep rolling him out there in season long.
Mar 24 - 9:41 PM

Brandon Ingram (knee tendinitis) will play on Friday vs. the Wolves.

With the Lakers tanking, Ingram's knee issue must be very minor if they are letting him play through it. With averages of 15.2 points (on 52.8 percent shooting), 4.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists over his last nine games, he's a decent option if you don't mind his poor free throw percentage. The Lakers will keep their same starting five of Jordan Clarkson, D'Angelo Russell, Ingram, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac.
Mar 24 - 8:55 PM

Buddy Hield is probable for Friday's game vs. the Warriors with a right quad contusion.

The Kings must be confident about Hield playing, as they just announced that Tyreke Evans, Darren Collison and Anthony Tolliver are resting. Hield is coming off a 21-point game on Wednesday and his owners can pencil him into lineups for now.
Mar 24 - 8:48 PM

Darren Collison, Tyreke Evans and Anthony Tolliver are all out for planned rest against the Warriors on Friday.

This is pretty much status quo for the Kings as they get a look at their youth. Ty Lawson should get big minutes in the first unit while the Kings piece it together in the second unit. Collison isn't worth owning now that he's basically resting every other game.
Mar 24 - 8:42 PM

Joel Embiid had successful minor arthroscopic surgery to address a meniscus tear in his left knee on Friday.

"The overall status of Joel’s lateral meniscus and his cartilage is very good, Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache said. "Today's procedure focused on removing a small portion of the meniscus that was responsible for his symptoms. The recovery program that has been established targets Joel transitioning back to full weight-bearing in approximately two weeks, at which point a conservative approach to his rehabilitation will be introduced." Embiid is expected to resume basketball activities this summer, so he should be a full go for training camp. There will be several updates on his progress throughout the offseason.

Derrick Jones Jr. is in the starting lineup against the Celtics on Friday.

He was reportedly not expected to play, but he'll be out there to start. Jones Jr. hurt his right wrist on Thursday night and needed X-rays. He is likely to be limited today and isn't a fantasy option.
