The Cavs are pushing Andrew Bynum to either accept or reject a two-year, $24 million offer laden with incentives.

The second year is a team option. The Cavs have begun to engage Andrei Kirilenko and Elton Brand in deals that could cause them to move on, and surely this article by Adrian Wojnarowski is one way for them to let Bynum know about that. The incentives appear to be reasonable items relating to games played and minutes, but the takeaway here is that the Cavs want to put him on a decision while Bynum and his agents are trying to find a one-year big money deal.

Alex Len will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Bucks.

Len was able to see 35 minutes his last time out as a starter, but Tyson Chandler was rested for that game, so it'll be interesting to see how many minutes Len can earn with Chandler active. Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, T.J. Warren and Marquese Chriss will join Len in the starting five for today's matinee.

Patrick Beverley (groin) was withheld from competing during Sunday's practice as a precautionary measure.

Beverley said that his groin was feeling a bit tight, but he's not expecting to miss Monday's game against the Pacers. Check back for official confirmation on his status following Monday morning's shootaround.

Kenneth Faried (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

With Faried on the sidelines, there will be more minutes available for guys like Wilson Chandler, Juan Hernangomez and Darrell Arthur, with Chandler offering the most upside out of the group. The Nuggets have a back-to-back set coming up, Tuesday in Chicago and Wednesday in Milwaukee, and for now, we'll be considering Faried questionable for those games.

Khris Middleton will start on Sunday vs. the Suns, sending Michael Beasley to the bench.

This is an indication that the Bucks are ready to increase Middleton's workload, but just keep in mind that he could be rested on Monday vs. the Cavs on the second night of a back-to-back set. He has played 24 and 26 minutes in his previous two games, so maybe he can flirt with close to 30 minutes Sunday. He has early-round upside like we saw last season, so Middleton could be a league winner if he finds his form.

Willie Reed (ankle) is day-to-day and will not play on Monday vs. Dallas.

AN MRI on Sunday morning revealed that he has right ankle bursitis, so Saturday's initial diagnosis of a right calf strain by the Heat was way off. Reed will not travel with the team, so we likely won't get another update until Tuesday. With Reed out, the Heat could use James Johnson as their backup center.

Stephen Curry scored 27 points with five rebounds, five assists, three steals and five 3-pointers during a 112-95 win over the Nets on Saturday.

With Kevin Durant (hand) out for the first time all season, Klay Thompson also scored 24 points to be the only two Warriors to hit double-digit scoring in this win. The Warriors became the first team this season to clinch a playoff spot and sit at 49-9 on the year. Curry also had a four-point play for two straight games to get him to five of those on the season. He had a terrible finish to his first half, but he's started hot with this gem and a 35-point Thursday. The Warriors start their five-game East Coast trip on Tuesday and will be on the road until Mar. 8 when Boston comes to the Bay Area. Curry is sitting pretty as a top-five player in fantasy this season.

Karl-Anthony Towns scored 37 points with a career-high 22 rebounds in Saturday's 142-130 loss to the Rockets.

So good. KAT has been the top player in standard leagues for over a month and showed why tonight, shooting 16-of-24 from the field, 4-of-4 from the line and 1-of-2 from beyond the arc with three assists, one block and one steal. He took advantage of a Houston team that has allowed the fourth most fantasy points to centers this season, but he gets another great matchup on Monday vs. the Kings. There's no reason to sell high.

Anthony Davis scored 39 points during a 96-83 loss to the Mavs on Saturday, adding 14 rebounds, one steal, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

That's two blowout losses in the two games since DeMarcus Cousins arrived. Coach Alvin Gentry has done a decent job of staggering his two bigs with the pair on the court for only 44 minutes together in the two games -- Davis has played 72 total minutes and Cousins has played 67. It seems pretty clear Boogie will be affected more than AD, who should still be a first-round guy going forward.
Feb 26 - 12:18 AM

Jimmy Butler posted his first triple-double of the season during a 117-99 win in Cleveland on Saturday, scoring 18 points with 10 rebounds, 10 assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

Sure, LeBron James (illness) did not play, but the Bulls will take it to put them on a four-game winning streak -- they are now sixth in the Eastern Conference. Butler looks to be over his troublesome heel issue from earlier this month with 40.0 minutes per game in his last four. His fantasy owners can start feeling good about him being a first-round player in standard leagues during his career year.
Feb 25 - 11:53 PM

James Harden led the Rockets to a 142-130 win over the Wolves on Friday night, scoring 24 points on 6-of-15 shooting.

He hit 7-of-10 from the line and 5-of-11 from deep, adding 10 assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block in 35 minutes. The Rockets scored a season-high 142 points in the win and attempted 58 3-pointers, three shy of their franchise record -- coach Mike D'Antoni said this week that the Rockets want to attempt 50+ 3-pointers every night. There's been some talk about the Rockets reducing Harden's workload a bit, but that doesn't really matter in an offense as potent as this. He's the top player in 8-cat leagues this season.
Feb 25 - 11:47 PM

Nikola Mirotic scored 14 points with 10 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Cavs on Saturday.

Two good games in a row? Is this real life? Mirotic was in a serious slump heading into the break and was even a DNP-CD in the last game before the All-Star break. Plus, the Bulls said they traded Taj Gibson because they wanted to get a look at Bobby Portis. Well, maybe this is a wakeup call for Mirotic and he can keep it going. He's far from a must-add guy, but coming out hot after the break makes him worth a pickup for anyone needing treys.
