Raptors waive forward Linas Kleiza and designate him as the team’s amnesty player.

Kleiza's knees have been troublesome and he had microfracture surgery in 2011. He could land with another team at some point this season if he doesn't play overseas, but his days of being a fantasy option appear to be over.

Jusuf Nurkic hit 9-of-10 shots for 21 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and four blocks in 27 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Rockets.

Nurkic was awesome tonight and was able to stay on the floor despite being in foul trouble for most of the game. Clint Capela disappeared for the Rockets tonight and Nurk's domination was part of the reason why that happened. Nurkic has had his ups and downs this season, but has been a beast in March. He's a big reason why they won 13 straight games before losing tonight.

Al-Farouq Aminu caught fire in the first quarter of Tuesday's game and stayed hot, finishing with 22 points, eight rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and a season-high six 3-pointers.

It wasn't enough as the Rockets snapped the Blazers 13-game winning streak, but it was one of the best games Aminu has had in some time, if not ever. He really fell off in the last couple months, but is starting to turn it on again, scoring in double figures in four straight games, averaging 9.3 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 3.8 3-pointers over that stretch. Go get him.

Chris Paul had an electric 22 points, eight rebounds, six assists and five 3-pointers on Tuesday, but appeared to injure his left hamstring in the final two seconds of the game.

He stayed in, made a couple clutch free throws and told Dennis Scott that he was all right after the game, but he was clearly in pain and doing some limping right after the injury occurred, and also sat out the final inbounds play of the game. "I'm cool, winning always makes everything feel better," said Paul when 3D asked him about the potential injury after the game. CP3 has had some groin and knee issues this season and it looks like you can add hamstring to the list. Hopefully he wakes up on Wednesday and feels good, but there's a chance this is an injury that could cost him some time. Keep an eye out for updates on Wednesday and Thursday.

Blake Griffin nearly triple-doubled in an easy 115-88 win over the Suns on Tuesday with 26 points, 10 assists, nine rebounds, one block and three triples in 32 minutes.

He hit all five of his free throws and shot 9-of-15 from the field with zero turnovers. Ever since his 13-point dud against the Jazz, Griffin has been on an impressive run over his last four games, posting averages of 23.3 points, 8.3 assists, 7.5 rebounds, 0.5 blocks and 3.0 triples. The Pistons are six losses behind the No. 8 seed (Bucks), but Detroit has no choice but to make a push for the playoffs since they traded away their first-round pick. That's good news for Griffin's fantasy owners.

Alex Len erupted for 19 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and three blocks in Tuesday's 115-88 loss to the Pistons.

Len's minutes have been all over the place lately, but he's the only healthy center on the roster right now and the Suns needed his size against Andre Drummond. Len hit 9-of-11 shots and his only free throw, but it's hard to add a player that averaged 12.5 minutes in his previous March games. If you want to take a flier on him, give him a look for Phoenix's back-to-back set on Friday vs. Cleveland and Saturday vs. Orlando because Alan Williams (knee) won't make his debut until Monday at the earliest. Keep an eye out for any news on Tyson Chandler (neck, shoulder) though.

Dennis Schroder hit 16-of-28 shots, three 3-pointers and 6-of-10 free throws for a career-high 41 points, five rebounds and seven assists in Tuesday's unlikely 99-94 win over the Jazz.

Schroder had his way with Ricky Rubio (who also fared well with 23 points) and had a very efficient game. He missed some big free throws and made a foolish flagrant foul on Rubio late by poking him in the eye, but the Hawks only won this game because of what Schroder was able to do. He's scored in double figures in 10 straight games, but the tanking Hawks need to be careful, as they accidentally tied the Magic tonight for the worst record in the East with the win.
Mar 20 - 11:49 PM

Evan Turner went to the locker room late in the first half with a gash above his left eye and received three stitches.

Three stitches aren't bad and Turner is on the bench and ready to return to the game. He should be fine.
Mar 20 - 11:35 PM

Marcus Morris hit a contested 3-pointer with 1.2 seconds on the clock to win Tuesday's game against the Thunder, finishing with 21 points, four boards, a steal and three 3-pointers on 8-of-13 shooting in 30 minutes.

Morris' shot was beyond clutch and he's rolling, averaging 17.6 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.0 3-pointers over his last five games. The Celtics were helped in the 100-99 win by Carmelo Anthony missing a pair of free throws that allowed Morris to hit the game-winner, and he should be in all fantasy lineups until further notice.
Mar 20 - 10:57 PM

Rajon Rondo started and hit 8-of-14 shots, a 3-pointer and 2-of-4 free throws for 19 points, nine rebounds, 14 assists and three steals in 30 minutes of Tuesday's 115-105 win over the Mavericks.

He missed a couple free throws with the game close late, but also hit a big 3-pointer to put the Mavericks away tonight. This was a nice revenge game for Rondo, who also had 11 assists on Sunday. The Pelicans are in must-win mode and Rondo is averaging 10.3 points, 5.5 rebounds, 11.8 assists and 2.8 steals over his last four games. Make sure he's in your lineup.
Mar 20 - 10:31 PM

Anthony Davis hit 15-of-21 shots, two 3-pointers and 5-of-7 free throws for 37 points, eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks in Tuesday's 115-105 win over the Mavericks.

He was iffy to play in the second half after suffering a lower leg injury, but he was back out there doing work in the second half. The Pelicans are going to be in must-win mode every night so if Davis can play, he's going to. Just check back to make sure he's good to go against the Pacers on Wednesday.
Mar 20 - 10:23 PM

Jonathan Isaac started again on Tuesday and hit 4-of-7 shots and 2-of-2 3-pointers for 10 points, five rebounds, five steals and two blocks in 28 minutes.

There it is! We've been waiting for Isaac to break out and while he's flirted with some nice lines, this is the first time he's really put it all together. If you picked him up to play him this week, well done. And if he's still sitting on your waiver wire, it makes sense to grab him. Frank Vogel will likely play Isaac and Aaron Gordon alongside each other a lot the rest of the way in order to see what he's got, as he envisions the duo being an elite defensive tandem for the Magic next season.
