The Hawks and Kyle Korver agreed on a four-year, $24 million deal on Wednesday.

Korver getting even close to $6 million per year over four years is an increase from the $5 million he was paid last season. He earned it, shooting a ridiculous 45.7 percent from downtown last year and led the Eastern Conference in 3-point makes. The Hawks could be a little thinner in their rotation and Korver may have a shot to duplicate his production from last season.

Kyle Lowry (right wrist) will not play against the Celtics on Friday night.

Ouch. Coach Dwane Casey said he doesn't know how long Lowry will be out and the team announced he will receive further evaluation over the weekend. Lowry has owned the Celtics this season, but now the Raptors will have to turn to Cory Joseph as their primary scoring one. Although, it is certainly possible Delon Wright or Fred VanVleet get the start. DeMar DeRozan should be very busy tonight.

Cameron Payne (illness) will not play against the Suns on Friday.

The other former Thunder players are good to go, but Payne has the flu. The Bulls overpaid for Payne, so they will likely give him decent minutes once he gets a grip on the offense. He'll have a lot of bumps in the road in his new role, but he's worth a look in fantasy leagues if you need a point guard.
Feb 24 - 6:20 PM

P.J. Tucker is available to play against the Celtics on Friday night.

The Raptors kept Serge Ibaka out for his game after a trade, but the Raptors will have Tucker available off the bench. He will likely be used as a second-unit defender, but he could take minutes away from DeMarre Carroll when Carroll goes into one of his numerous slumps. Tucker is more of a drop than an add.

Al Jefferson (dental pain) will not play on Friday against the Grizzlies.

Hopefully this is just a one-day thing for Jefferson, who was not on the injury report just an hour ago. With the Pacers getting their power forwards back, Kevin Seraphin should slide over the backup five spot behind Myles Turner against the bigger Memphis front line. Turner also get a slight bump, too.
Feb 24 - 5:37 PM

Thaddeus Young (left wrist) and Lavoy Allen (right knee) are probable to play against the Grizzlies on Friday.

The Pacers should get their starting power forward back to fill around 31 minutes per game. In January, Young racked up 2.8 steals per game, adding averages of 10.3 points, 5.3 boards, 2.0 assists and 0.7 treys. If he's sitting on your wire, go pick him up. Kevin Seraphin is going to lose most of his minutes.
Feb 24 - 3:32 PM

Chris Paul (thumb) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Spurs.

For what it's worth, Chris Paul tweeted "back at it" this afternoon, which suggests he'll be back out there. Paul is still about a full week ahead of his timetable, but he is medically cleared to play. This game won't tip until 10:30 EST, so we likely won't be getting anything concrete on his status until 9:00. If CP3 is back, Austin Rivers and Raymond Felton figure to lose minutes.
Feb 24 - 3:23 PM

Coach Gregg Popovich confirmed that Pau Gasol (hand) will play Friday night vs. the Clippers.

Gasol has not suited up since breaking his hand in pregame warmups back on January 19th. The 2016-17 campaign has been a disappointing one for Gasol. He is averaging career-lows in many statistical categories, including points (11.7) and minutes (26.4). He ranks just outside the top-80 overall in nine-category fantasy leagues this season. Gasol's return will eat into the minutes of David Lee, Dewayne Dedmon and Davis Bertans.

Malcolm Delaney will start in place of the suspended Dennis Schroder on Friday night vs. Miami.



RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Delaney will draw the start at PG on Friday, and he immediately becomes one of the most appealing value plays on the slate. He's priced at or near the minimum on every DFS outlet, and given that he should see upwards of 30 minutes with a healthy usage rate - he's at 21.4% without Schroder on the floor - he's a fine play in any format. As of this writing, he sits as the top dollar per point play in the RotoGrinders projections. Millsap, Bazemore and Hardaway Jr. also see upticks with Schroder off the floor, as all three pick up between 3-4% in the way of usage.
Feb 24 - 1:16 PM

Bobby Portis will start at power forward Friday night vs. the Suns.

Portis has been disappointingly quiet for much of the 2016-17 campaign, but it appears he will get a chance to showcase his talents over the season's final two months after the Bulls traded Taj Gibson to OKC on Thursday. Portis flashed his upside when he scored a season-high 19 points and grabbed eight rebounds in the Bulls final contest before the All-Star break. He had 16 points and six boards in the only other game he played more than 25 minutes this season. His fantasy stock is rising.
Feb 24 - 12:46 PM

The Hawks have suspended Dennis Schroder for one game (Friday night vs. Miami) for failure to report to the team on time after the All-Star break.

"Dennis has played an important role for our team and been a significant contributor to our success this season," coach Mike Budenholzer said. "We are disappointed that he did not return to the team on time and we have discussed this with him. We look forward to him rejoining the team in Orlando tomorrow night." Malcolm Delaney is expected to draw the start in place of Schroder on Friday night and makes for an excellent streaming and/or DFS option.
Feb 24 - 12:32 PM

Coach Brad Stevens said Avery Bradley (Achilles) will go through shootaround but will "most likely" not play Friday night vs. Toronto.

This is somewhat discouraging news, as Bradley has appeared in only one game since Jan 6. and had been targeting Friday as a return date. However, Bradley did travel with the team and told reporters that he felt "100 percent." He said he hoped to play Friday night but that the training staff might not let him. Marcus Smart will again see heavy minutes in Bradley's absence.
