Knicks signed C Jeremy Tyler to a two-year contract.

A 2011 second-round pick, Tyler has had cups of coffee in the NBA with the Warriors and Hawks. The 6'10/260-pounder played with the Knicks in Vegas this summer, averaging 12.8 points and 6.4 rebounds over 17.6 minutes. He'll be deep insurance behind Tyson Chandler, Amare Stoudemire, Kenyon Martin and Earl Barron if he makes the final roster.

Reggie Jackson (neck spasms) is questionable to play Sunday vs. the Celtics.

Jackson wasn't able to go through shootaround, although he was able to get in some work around 3pm ET, so he's shaping up to be a game-time call for tonight's game. Owners will have to check back closer to tip-off for an official update, but if he's out, Ish Smith would draw the start and he'd be someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or low-budget DFS option. Stay tuned.

Kevin Durant (left hand contusion) is questionable to play Monday vs. the 76ers.

Durant sat out Saturday's easy win over the Nets, and with a matchup against the 76ers on Monday, Steve Kerr may elect to hold his superstar on the sidelines rather than risk him aggravating the injury against one of the worst teams in the league. Patrick McCaw got the start in his place on Saturday night, but it was Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson who saw the biggest uptick in value sans The Duranchula. It'll be more of the same if Durant is out again on Monday.

Dewayne Dedmon will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

Pau Gasol is healthy again, but Gregg Popovich is working him back into things slowly by bringing him off the bench. Tony Paker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge will join Dedmon in the starting five for today's game.
Feb 26 - 3:42 PM

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.
Feb 26 - 2:45 PM

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.
Feb 26 - 2:32 PM

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.
Feb 26 - 2:15 PM

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.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Middleton is averaging 1.12 FanDuel points per minute this season. He’s in a great spot Sunday against Phoenix – Milwaukee’s implied team total is 9.8 points above their season average (115.3) and the game’s projected pace is 3.3 above their normal rate (102.1). Given his cheap price, he projects as one of our top points-per-dollar plays on both FD and DraftKings.

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.
Feb 26 - 12:55 PM

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.
Feb 26 - 1:45 AM

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.
Feb 26 - 12:28 AM

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.
