Kendrick Perkins said he's working harder this offseason on his shot and explosiveness.

"I've been working, man," Perkins said. "Been in the gym and basically just working more in the weight room on my explosiveness and touch around the basket, hook shots and stuff like that. I've been shooting a lot of jumpers, making sure I make 300 a night. I'm just trying to prepare." He added that he was back on the court just two weeks after his knee scope on July 9, so he'll have most of the offseason to get it going. Last year was a disaster for Perkins. Among players seeing at least 25 minutes per night, he ranked dead last in the NBA in player efficiency rating while shooting a career-low 45.7 percent. Obviously, he'll need a bit of a miracle to get back in our good graces for fantasy.

LeBron James suffered a scratched cornea in his right eye on Friday and may miss Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

LeBron was poked in the eye by Jeremy Lamb in the final minute of the third quarter of Friday night's win over the Hornets. He was able to return to the game but then fell hard on his lower back in the fourth quarter. After the game, LeBron said his vision was blurry and was unable to keep his right eye open. "If coach decides to give me a game off [Saturday], it's not because I'm resting," said James. "It's because I'm banged up." Check back, as we should have an official update from the team following Saturday morning's shootaround.

Stephen Curry handed out a season-high 12 assists during a 114-100 win over the Kings on Friday, adding 27 points, seven rebounds, six steals and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

The Warriors assists were all over the place early with 20 in the first half, which was the second straight time they did so in the first half. As for Curry, he also made his 277th triple this season for the third most in NBA history -- he has the first and second most. Not that anyone should've been worried about Curry's shooting slump, but now he's made 52.5 percent from deep with 5.3 treys per game over his last four outings. Expect a big finish until the Warriors lock up their top seed.
Mar 25 - 3:24 AM

Draymond Green scored a season-high 23 points with four rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers against the Kings on Friday.

It's just his fourth 20-plus scoring game of the season. Green has scored in single digits for each of his last four games, which was somewhat surprising due to how he did have some added usage while Kevin Durant (knee) was out. Green's assists have still been great and the Warriors handed out 37 dimes in this win. The Warriors still only have a 2.5 game lead over the Spurs, so they may not rest too many games until they lock up the No. 1 seed.
Mar 25 - 3:17 AM

Buddy Hield turned in career-highs 22 points, eight boards and seven dimes against the Warriors on Friday, adding two steals and four 3-pointers.

He's about as hot as he could be, matching his previous career-high 21 points on Wednesday. The Kings are resting their point guards now to allow Hield to have the ball more, and he does have at least 32 minutes in each of his last four. He could disappoint his next time out, but Hield looks like an add in standard leagues.
Mar 25 - 2:58 AM

James Harden scored 38 points during a 117-107 win over the Pelicans on Friday with 17 assists, seven rebounds, one block, two steals and five 3-pointers.

That's his NBA-high eighth 30-plus scoring game this month. Harden also scored or assisted on 77 points tonight, and he's currently on pace to set the record for that department this season with 57.7 points per game -- Nate Archibald has the record with 56.8 in 1972-73. He has scored at least 38 points in four straight and will get a big MVP-caliber matchup with Russell Westbrook Sunday afternoon. There will be triple-doubles.

The NBA has suspended Joakim Noah 20 games for violating its anti-drug program.

This means he will be suspended for the final 10 games of this season and the first 10 games of the 2017-18 season. Noah tested positive for an over-the-counter supplement that is prohibited under the CBA, but he cooperated fully with the league’s probe and the National Basketball Players Association’s investigation concluded that Noah hadn’t "knowingly or willingly" violated the policy. Noah is still recovering from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee that he had on Feb. 27, and while he wasn't expected to return this season anyways, he recently started running and conditioning. That contract is looking pretty awful right now.
Mar 25 - 2:08 AM

Dario Saric scored a career-high 32 points during a 117-107 win over the Bulls on Friday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

The Homie Dario just will not let up. As he has all season, coach Brett Brown talked up his future Rookie of the Year. "When you can find someone that competes at his level and also has a selfless side, that's a hell of a package," Brown said. When the 76ers add so much talent to their roster next year, it'll be very interesting to see how Brown uses Dario. Until then, Saric's fantasy owners can just enjoy the ride.
Mar 25 - 2:03 AM

Ricky Rubio scored 19 points on 5-of-13 shooting with 15 assists, three rebounds, three steals, one block and one triple in Friday's loss to the Lakers.

This was the fifth straight loss for the Wolves and they now trail the No. 8 seed (Denver) by 6.5 games. However, Rubio's owners may not have to worry about DNPs or a potential shut-down just yet -- the Wolves used more two-PG lineups tonight and Rubio logged 25 minutes next to Kris Dunn. Even though Dunn's workload should rise, he will likely take minutes away from Brandon Rush and not Rubio if tonight was any indication.
Mar 25 - 1:59 AM

Andrew Wiggins' 36 points weren't enough in a 130-117 overtime loss to the Lakers on Friday.

He did all he could, shooting 14-of-28 from the field with five rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and five 3-pointers in 44 minutes. This was his 11th game of the season with 30+ points, and if his owners can sneak by next week with three games, they get to look forward to the Wolves having five games from Apr. 3 to Apr. 9.
Mar 25 - 1:49 AM

Jordan Clarkson scored a career-high 33 points on 13-of-20 shooting with eight 3-pointers, five assists and two rebounds in 47 minutes in a 130-117 overtime win over the Wolves on Friday.

What a way to respond after he scored five points on 1-of-9 shooting vs. the Clippers on Tuesday. It's no secret that Clarkson is a high-volume shooter, but Walton said earlier this week that he wants him to find other ways to impact the game if his shot isn't falling. "He’s too good of an athlete. He’s one guy who loves to compete, but you can’t get locked in and focus on the fact you can’t make any shots," Walton said. "That’ll come eventually. Get into someone on defense, make some steals, make some passes, take a charge, do something." Clarkson has been a beast since the Lou Williams trade and should be owned in standard leagues.
Mar 25 - 1:26 AM

Brandon Ingram (knee) won't return to Friday's game vs. the Wolves.

This was announced during overtime, so he was probably on a minutes restriction -- he was icing his knee on the bench down the stretch. Ingram is dealing with tendinitis, so it shouldn't be a long-term issue and he will likely be fine for Sunday's game vs. the Blazers. The rookie scored 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting with three rebounds and a triple in 30 minutes.
