The Kings will meet with DeMarcus Cousins' agent, Dan Fegan, in the "near future" to discuss a contract extension.

The two sides should be able to work out a deal. Cousins said that he's "loyal" to the Kings, the team seems willing to make him a franchise-type guy and Fegan is one of the best agents in the business. Fegan is reportedly pushing for a maximum five-year, $80 million deal -- like the one John Wall is expected to receive. If Cousins can ever get his head on straight, he'll be well worth that kind of money. There aren't many big men in the entire game with better skills.

Paul Pierce (rest) will not play against the 76ers on Wednesday and Otto Porter will start in his place.

Pierce hasn't missed a game since Feb. 27 and the playoffs are just around the corner, so rest against the 76ers on the road makes sense. Porter played 37 minutes in the last game without Pierce, so he could get run. Pierce isn't worth owning in most leagues right now.
Apr 1 - 6:11 PM

C.J. Miles (ankle) and Rodney Stuckey (wrist) are available to play against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Coach Frank Vogel said that both players are banged up heading into tonight, so they're likely to have their minutes limited. Miles has struggled to stay on the court even when he's entering a game at full health, so he's risky to start in any league. If he's unable to play through the injury, C.J. Watson, Solomon Hill and Damjan Rudez would step up.
Apr 1 - 6:05 PM

Updating a previous item, Jason Richardson (knee) will play against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He was expected to miss tonight and a game over the weekend, so this is a surprise. Richardson hasn't played well at all and is still not worth grabbing in almost any league. His return will take some minutes away from Jerami Grant, Hollis Thompson and Robert Covington.
Apr 1 - 5:53 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) will start Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs.

He's missed four games over the past few weeks but didn't have any setbacks after practicing on Tuesday, so he should see his usual 20-25 minutes tonight. He's not an appealing fantasy player, though he's a decent streaming option if you need rebounds, blocks and FG percentage. Channing Frye and Andrew Nicholson lose the most with Dedmon back in action.
Apr 1 - 5:22 PM

Kelly Olynyk (left eye laceration) is doubtful to play against the Pacers on Wednesday.

He suffered the injury at shootaround due to an elbow from Shavlik Randolph. With Olynyk out, Brandon Bass, Tyler Zeller, Jae Crowder and Jonas Jerebko should get more minutes. Bass and Zeller are worth starting in standard leagues tonight.
Apr 1 - 5:07 PM

Shabazz Napier had successful surgery for a sports hernia and will miss the rest of the regular season.

There's a chance of Napier making it back in the postseason with the Heat currently sitting the seven spot for the Eastern Conference standings. Napier was already leapfrogged by Tyler Johnson and doesn't get consistent minutes anyway. He'll look to improve next season.

Alex Len (nose) will miss one week after suffering a broken nose on Monday.

Just when he was getting it going, Len gets hurt again. He can be dropped in just about all leagues considering he's going to miss almost half of the Suns' remaining games. With Len out, Brandan Wright is now back to being a must-own player in all leagues. Expect to see some Markieff Morris at the five while Earl Barron could play some as well.
Apr 1 - 3:57 PM

Kevin Love (back) will be a game-time decision to face the Heat on Thursday.

He went through non-contact portions of practice on Wednesday. Love has previously said his back issue is not a problem and the Cavs did rest him for two games last month, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see him rest again. If he's out, Tristan Thompson would directly benefit while J.R. Smith may get more shots, too.
Apr 1 - 2:36 PM

Luol Deng did not practice on Wednesday and he will be a game-time decision to face the Cavs on Thursday.

He would likely have to cover LeBron James, so Deng might have to be close to 100 percent to be active. Deng didn't play on Tuesday, which allowed James Ennis to get 27 minutes and seven points in the starting lineup. Henry Walker would also benefit. The Heat have three games from Thursday to Sunday, so their players have some nice value right now in daily season-long leagues.
Apr 1 - 2:29 PM

Jeremy Lin (illness) will start against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

He missed two games due to a respiratory issue and he could be back up to his normal playing time of around 30 minutes. Lin had trouble speaking on Monday due to soreness in his throat, so there's a little risk in starting him in fantasy on a 12-game night. Jabari Brown is much less attractive now.
Apr 1 - 2:23 PM

J.J. Hickson (knee) is only expected to play if it's absolutely necessary on Wednesday against the Jazz.

He is technically questionable to play, but he'll be in uniform tonight. Without Hickson and Darrell Arthur (calf), Jusuf Nurkic and Kenneth Faried should have a higher floor for their minutes tonight. We'll likely see more of Joffrey Lauvergne as well. Hickson can be dropped just about everywhere.
