Latest Headlines

Updating a previous item, Emeka Okafor (neck) is "optimistic" that he won't need surgery on his herniated C4 disk.

He will try and rehab the injury and said he has no timetable for a return. Okafor is planning on doing manual manipulation and spine exercises while remaining hopeful to play this season. He isn't worth drafting with this news and Kevin Seraphin moves up as a target in standard drafts.

Nikola Pekovic (ankle) will not play again in the 2014-15 season.

Earlier today we asked why the Wolves haven't ruled him out for the season, so this is nice to see the Wolves are sharing a little more information. Pekovic can be dropped in all re-draft leagues. Justin Hamilton will get the start at center tonight.
Mar 30 - 6:52 PM

Jeff Teague will start against the Bucks on Monday night.

He is almost a lock to sit tomorrow on the road, but it's great to see he's back for tonight. Teague is going to sit multiple games going forward, so Dennis Schroder should be owned in all leagues.
Mar 30 - 6:48 PM

Derrick Favors (back) is very unlikely to play against the Wolves on Monday.

There are some reports of him being out, but none of the usual Utah beat guys have completely ruled him out. With Favors out, it'll be Trevor Booker in the starting lineup in a favorable matchup. He's worth a look as a stream play at any depth.
Mar 30 - 6:45 PM

Reggie Evans and Jason Thompson will start against the Grizzlies on Monday night.

Omri Casspi will move to the bench because a small lineup probably won't work well against the Grizzlies. Evans and Thompson both posted 0.0 usage rates on Friday, so it's hard to be too excited about starting either in most leagues. Thompson is by far the more attractive play tonight.
Mar 30 - 6:41 PM

Tony Allen (hamstring) does not have a timetable to return.

He's not going to play on Monday and he could miss the entire week due to the aggravation to his hamstring. It'll be Vince Carter getting most of his minutes while Jeff Green also benefits. Allen can be dropped in all re-draft leagues.
Mar 30 - 6:40 PM

Luc Mbah a Moute will not play against the Lakers on Monday.

There's no word as to why just yet, but he missed Wednesday's game due to a shoulder issue. The 76ers will give most of their forward minutes to Nerlens Noel, Robert Covington, JaKarr Sampson, Thomas Robinson and Hollis Thompson.
Mar 30 - 6:34 PM

Jerami Grant (illness) will not play against the Lakers on Monday.

So that's at least three players in the Lakers at Sixers game who are out with an upper respiratory illness. With Grant out, JaKarr Sampson is going to get the start, but he's not a fantasy option. No Grant should help Robert Covington and Hollis Thompson. Fantasy owners in almost any league can't start Grant this week.
Mar 30 - 6:31 PM

Cody Zeller (shoulder) will not play against the Celtics on Monday.

There was hope he could play today, but he's probably dealing with too much discomfort with shooting the ball. Zeller is not worth owning in most leagues. Marvin Williams will start and is worth owning in standard leagues. Expect Bismack Biyombo and Jason Maxiell to also step up.
Mar 30 - 6:10 PM

Updating a previous item, Carlos Boozer (illness) will not play against the 76ers on Monday.

With Boozer now out, the Lakers could rest one more big man in their rotation. It was Boozer and Ed Davis yesterday, so maybe they go that route again. Robert Sacre is warming up and we'll pass along more info as we receive it.
Mar 30 - 6:05 PM

Kyle Lowry (back spasms) is still hurt and it's "not just something where he's sore," according to coach Dwane Casey.

It doesn't sound like he's going to be back at any point this week and he can probably be dropped in most fantasy leagues. Greivis Vasquez will get at least one more start tonight and probably has a few more headed his way, too. However, he hasn't played well, so he's not a must-own player. Vasquez is still worth a look if you need some treys and dimes.
Mar 30 - 6:02 PM

Jeremy Lin (illness) will not play against the 76ers on Monday.

He has an allergy issue and will miss his second straight game. Wayne Ellington will get another start and Jabari Brown will be the sixth man for the Lakers tonight. Expect both to be around 30 minutes and they could also be score in the teens tonight. Jordan Clarkson is also a nice play tonight.
