Chris Kaman and the Lakers have agreed on a one-year deal worth the full mini-mid-level exception.

The short-term deal makes sense for both sides. Ideally, the 31-year-old Kaman could earn a more lucrative long-term deal next summer by staying healthy and re-establishing himself as a go-to post player. The Lakers get to rent the best available FA center on the market while maintaining ridiculous flexibility for the summer of 2014, when the contracts of Kobe Bryant, Pau Gasol, Metta World Peace, Steve Blake and Jordan Hill all expire.

Jordan Clarkson scored 14 points on 6-of-17 shooting on Friday vs. the Thunder.

Coach Luke Walton said Clarkson is going to close out more games with D'Angelo Russell now that Lou Williams is in Denver, and he kept his word tonight. Clarkson added five rebounds, five assists, four steals and two triples, posting a 28.1 usage rate in 29 minutes -- he had a 23.0 usage rate on the season. He's trending up and is a big winner of the Lou Williams trade along with Russell. He's firmly back on the standard-league radar if you're targeting triples and steals.

Bradley Beal's 40 points were not enough during a 120-112 loss to the 76ers on Friday, adding four rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

He put on a scoring clinic with all sorts of fancy baskets for the Philly crowd. While John Wall is struggling a tad with his efficiency lately, Beal is flourishing with 26.3 points, 3.5 boards, 3.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 3.6 treys on 56.2 percent from the field in his last 10. He is above league average as a shooter in basically every area of the floor, including his 73.3 percent at the rim in that span. He should have been an All-Star and is having a breakout season for his owners.

D'Angelo Russell lit up the box score for 29 points, six assists, four rebounds, four steals and three triples in Friday's 110-93 loss to the Thunder.

With Lou Williams out of the picture, coach Luke Walton said Russell and Jordan Clarkson would be more involved in the fourth quarter and he kept his word as both players closed this game out. Russell logged 36 minutes on the night and hit 12-of-25 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line with four turnovers, so he's a huge winner from the Lou Williams trade. His fantasy arrow is pointing way up.

Paul George (cramp) said he will play against the Heat on Saturday night.

He had a cramp that looked to be just above his knee and George did have to limp to the locker room in the last minute on Friday. The Pacers are going to Miami for the Saturday game, so they won't have a shootaround. For now, his fantasy owners can expect him to play for the 8:00 EST start.

Paul George limped to the locker room with less than one minute remaining in the fourth quarter on Friday.

He had an awkward landing on his right leg and had a trainer come out to look at him while he was standing. George eventually went to the bench and had a trainer look at him while he was grimacing for about two minutes, but then limped to the locker room with about 30 seconds left. We should have an update on George in the post-game.He finished with just nine points, nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes.

Pau Gasol (hand) will come off the bench on Friday vs. the Clippers.

He's been out since Jan. 19, so this move is designed to limit Gasol's minutes in his first game back. Make sure he's not sitting on the waiver wire even though he has taken a noticeable step back in terms of fantasy value this season. Dewayne Dedmon will draw the start at least one more time, but he's an easy drop candidate.

Chris Paul (thumb) will return to the lineup to face the Spurs on Friday night.

He's back. CP3 tweeted out that he was going to return for this game, so this isn't a surprise despite the questionable tag. He has done some conditioning while he's been out and he was cleared a couple days ago, so there's no reason to think he'll have a hard limit. Austin Rivers and Ray Felton will take a backseat.

The Pelicans will waive injured forward Omri Casspi in order to sign Reggie Williams.

Casspi is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with a broken thumb, but this is still a bit surprising. We wouldn't expect another team to sign Casspi while he's on the shelf, so leave him on the wire. Reggie Williams likely won't have much value either and this should give Solomon Hill a slight boost.
Feb 24 - 8:12 PM

Danilo Gallinari (groin) and Kenneth Faried (ankle) will play on Friday vs. the Nets.

The Nuggets will list their injured players as probable for up to week after they return, so Gallo wasn't in real danger of missing this one. He scored 15 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and two turnovers in 30 minutes against the Kings on Thursday and gets to look forward to a great matchup with the Nets.
Feb 24 - 7:38 PM

Alex Len is listed as the starter for Friday against the Bulls.

Well, it looks like the youth movement didn't take long for the Suns. General manager Ryan McDonough mentioned Len will be playing a lot more going forward as the team wants to get a look at Len before he becomes a restricted free agent. Plus, the GM said Tyson Chandler was "phenomenal" about his new role as being more of a coach for the young guys. If you need a big man, you might want to add Len.
Feb 24 - 7:28 PM

Rodney Hood (knee) will return to the starting lineup on Friday vs. Milwaukee and Joe Ingles will return to the bench.

Hood, who has been battling an assortment of injuries all year long, is averaging 13.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.1 3-pointers this season. He had missed seven straight games prior to Friday. Hood's return will limit the both Ingles and Joe Johnson's minutes.
