The Warriors are not aggressively looking to trade away Andrew Bogut, Marc Stein of ESPN.com reports.

Bogut has the greatest trade value among the three expiring deals on the Golden State roster and the Warriors are aggressively trying to trade Richard Jefferson and Andris Biedrins. Two of the three players would probably have to be off their books to clear enough room for the Warriors to bring on Dwight. Of course, the Warriors are in a negotiation, so saying they're not shopping Bogut doesn't mean they won't when push comes to shove. Other NBA teams with cap space might be able to swoop in and get some young players off Golden State with the expiring contracts.

Joe Johnson slumpbusted in the Nets' big 106-98 win over the Cavs on Friday, scoring 20 points on 7-of-14 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds and nine assists.

Johnson and the Nets have a four-game week upcoming so hopefully owners used that as a tie-breaker in his favor on a drop decision. Even if he limps along at a late-round value, he'll be worth using in lineups that week and he's a must-add player if he was dropped. The Nets are a half-game out of the playoffs and the next 7-10 days are not likely to be the time in which he taps out.

Derrick Favors said his back locked up on Friday night and was walking gingerly after the game.

It sounds like he's not going to play on Saturday, which just adds to one of the most ridiculous months with respect to injuries. With Favors out, Trevor Booker will get most of his minutes while Jeremy Evans will also likely be in the rotation. Favors' fantasy owners might want to start planning on not having him for a few games.

Chris Paul was magnificent against the 76ers during a 119-98 win on Friday with 25 points, three rebounds, seven assists, one steal and three 3-pointers on 9-of-15 from the field in just 30 minutes.

It was all just too easy for CP3 with 19 points coming in the first half. Paul's offensive game is clicking at the right time, averaging 23.8 points, 4.4 boards, 12.0 dimes, 2.2 steals and 1.8 treys on 55.6 percent from the field and 88.9 percent from the line in his last five. If CP3 keeps this up, he'll likely be on a lot of fantasy championship teams.

Nerlens Noel scored a career-high 30 points on 12-of-17 from the field against the Clippers during 119-98 loss on Friday, adding 14 rebounds, two assists and two steals in 39 minutes.

His offensive game has soared to new heights and he continues to excel around the basket. In his last nine games, Noel averaged 16.9 points, 10.0 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.8 steals and 2.4 blocks on 57.5 percent from the field and 71.4 percent from the line. Andrew Wiggins was lapping the field for Rookie of the Year at the break, but Noel may have caught him in the past two weeks. He's truly awesome for his fantasy owners right now.

Mo Williams (sore knee) hit just 8-of-26 shots but everything else was golden on the stat sheet in Friday's double-overtime loss, finishing with 26 points, four treys, nine boards, 10 assists, two steals, two blocks and a 6-of-7 mark from the foul line.

Williams' injuries are both risky and sometimes overplayed in the media, making it hard to know which ones to worry about or not. If he somehow got dropped go and pick him up.

Monta Ellis was kneed in the right calf and coach Rick Carlisle said he doesn't know what the extent of the injury is.

"We'll see how he feels in the morning and go from there," Carlisle said. It sounds like he's dealing with a leg contusion, which has occurred an inordinate amount of times this season. Ellis is one of the toughest dudes in the NBA, so he might not need to miss time. If he does, it'll be Devin Harris, Richard Jefferson and Chandler Parsons filling in the most for Monta.
Mar 27 - 11:16 PM

Reggie Jackson triple-doubled in Friday's road win over the Magic, scoring 26 points on 9-of-19 shooting (1-of-2 3PTs, 7-of-9 FTs) with 11 rebounds, 10 assists and one steal.

Jackson becomes the first Pistons player since Grant Hill to have multiple triple-doubles in a season and he's turning it on at the right time for owners. He has been a top-20 play over the last week.
Mar 27 - 11:02 PM

Andre Iguodala will be rested on Saturday night in Milwaukee.

Coach Steve Kerr said others will have their minutes limited, so there's a chance there could be other DNPs on the horizon. Iguodala had a bad game in a win on Friday, making 1-of-11 from the field for three points with six boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer. It'll be Harrison Barnes, Shaun Livingston and Justin Holiday stepping up.
Mar 27 - 10:35 PM

Dwyane Wade said he will have his right knee drained on Saturday.

The Heat will host the Pistons on Sunday and Wade should be considered questionable for that game. If he does miss time, it will likely be Mario Chalmers getting the start with Tyler Johnson and Goran Dragic also stepping up. Wade didn't play well on Friday with 13 points, no rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes.
Mar 27 - 10:25 PM

Monta Ellis suffered a right leg injury on Friday night and will not return.

He was getting looked at on the bench before going to the locker room. It's unknown what the extent of the injury is for Monta, but he's usually very durable and this is a little bit of a surprise to see he's unlikely to return. He may be re-evaluated on Saturday. Ellis left the game with 10 points, two boards, one assist and one steal. With Monta out, expect Devin Harris and Chandler Parsons to step up. There's also been a Raymond Felton sighting tonight.
Mar 27 - 10:19 PM

Brandon Knight (ankle) will not play against the Blazers on Friday night.

He and warming up don't get along. Tonight is the second game in a row in which he warmed up and couldn't play. With Knight out, it'll be Marcus Morris and Archie Goodwin getting most of the playing time.
