Jannero Pargo and the Bobcats agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.4 million.

Pargo had discussions with the Knicks last week, but New York agreed to a deal with Beno Udrih on Thursday. Pargo played for three clubs last season but finished with the Bobcats. He'll likely compete with Ramon Sessions for time behind starting point guard Kemba Walker.

Derrick Rose (knee surgery) took full contact in practice on Monday.

It's a great sign for Rose and his eventual return this season. He took part in a full contact 4-on-4 scrimmage, and Tom Thibodeau said Rose looked winded afterward, but otherwise reported no ill effects. Rose previously said it would take him a week or two to get back into game action after being cleared for contact, so owners looking to stash him will want to think long and hard about all the DNPs he still has left to rack up. The Bulls play just three times in each of the next two weeks. Aaron Brooks owners: Take notice.

Updating a previous item, Patrick Beverley has decided to have wrist surgery, and the procedure will end his season, a source told the Houston Chronicle.

It's a devastating blow to the Rockets as the team is paper-thin at point guard behind him. Rookie Nick Johnson and veterans Jason Terry and Pablo Prigioni will look to fill the void, but none are real options for owners who have lost Beverley. MVP candidate James Harden will have even more to do as the Rockets close out the season in preparation for the playoffs.

Ryan Anderson (knee) is expected to return on the Pelicans upcoming road trip.

The Pelicans play in three straight road games on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, but it's not clear which game the big man is tentatively targeting to make his return. Regardless, his return will only help the Pelicans in their playoff push, but he's not a must-add player at this point. His return should mean less small ball for New Orleans as well as a role reduction for Dante Cunningham.

Kyle Lowry (back) will not play on Monday against the Rockets.

Lowry has already said that he won't rush his return, but it's not clear when he will be back on the floor. Greivis Vasquez is averaging 11.1 points, 4.3 assists and 1.7 triples on 44.6 percent shooting over 23 games as the starting point guard, and both Lou Williams and DeMar DeRozan will have more responsibilities while Lowry is sidelined, as well.

Jeff Teague (ankle) and the remainder of the Hawks starters are expected to play on Monday against the Bucks.

However, "more rest" is expected on Tuesday, and that should have been obvious considering the Hawks have clinched the No. 1 seed and are on a back-to-back set. After Tuesday's road game against the Pistons, the Hawks are off until Saturday, so those relying on Atlanta for fantasy contributions while fighting for their lives may want to look elsewhere.

For the second time in a week, Al Jefferson had fluid drained from his left knee.

And now we know why Jefferson hasn't looked right recently. His knee, in addition to his groin, is obviously a major concern, and the fact that he's had to have it drained twice in a week is not a good sign as the Hornets head down the stretch of the regular season. If he is forced to miss any time or have his minutes limited in any way, Bismack Biyombo would see an increased role with guys like Cody Zeller and Marvin Williams also playing more as Charlotte goes small.

Cody Zeller (shoulder) went through shootaround and is expected to play against the Celtics on Monday.

After Zeller was spotted shooting left-handed on Saturday, this is a very positive development, especially with Al Jefferson (knee/groin) playing at less than full strength. It's not clear what Zeller's playing time will be in his first game back, but Marvin Williams owners should be paying close attention.

Blake Griffin (elbow) admitted that he was a "a little swollen, a little sore, but OK" after taking a blow to the elbow on Sunday.

Griffin banged his elbow in what was the hardest shot he's sustained since returning, and although it sounds like he'll be fine, it's certainly worth monitoring considering what he's been through this season. For now, there is nothing to suggest it's a serious concern.
Mar 30 - 11:27 AM

Paul George (leg) is still awaiting medical clearance before making his potential season debut.

George has passed all of the tests to play, but the medical staff has not cleared him. The fact that George hasn't received clearance from the team's medical staff should have several pumping the brakes on his possible return. While everyone has been trying to guess when or if George will be back, nobody really knows. He's not worth stashing in almost any format.
Mar 30 - 10:55 AM

Ricky Rubio (ankle), Gorgui Dieng (facial contusion) and Kevin Martin (hamstring) are all questionable to play on Monday.

The Timberwolves are notoriously terrible with their injury updates, and this doesn't really help owners at all. All three players could very well be facing game-time decisions. If Rubio sits, Zach LaVine will start at point guard, if Dieng doesn't play, Justin Hamilton will likely start at center and if Martin is out, expect Lorenzo Brown to draw another start at shooting guard. As a starter, LaVine is averaging 11.7 points, 3.5 rebounds, 4.7 assists, a steal and 0.9 triples on 41 percent shooting.
Mar 30 - 10:36 AM

Dwight Howard (knee) will not play on Monday against the Raptors.

Howard was already ruled out of the contest, and this is just a reminder that he's not cleared to play in back-to-back sets. Without Howard available, the Rockets will have to rely on starting Joey Dorsey inside, going small often and Josh Smith playing all of the minutes he can handle.
