Lakers trainer Gary Vitti suggested that Steve Nash (leg, hamstring) might benefit from occasional rest during the NBA season.

"He might be a guy that would be better off reducing his minutes," Vitti continued. "Because he wasn't himself last year, let's see what he's like in camp. We're not going to beat the guy up." Nash is almost completely recovered, but at 39 years old the Lakers may have to get creative to keep him healthy during the season. He averaged 32 minutes per game last year, but he also missed 32 games.

C.J. Miles poured in a game-high 28 points to help Indiana beat the visiting Mavericks on Sunday, making 9-of-12 field goals with five 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Miles also went 5-of-6 at the FT line, richly rewarding owners who gambled on him despite the return of Rodney Stuckey (calf). He's been good enough to keep in all active lineups, especially since the playoff-hungry Pacers are heading into a four-game week.

Chandler Parsons flourished against the Pacers on Sunday, scoring 27 points on 11-of-20 shooting with 10 boards, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

Parsons got some extra looks on offense with Monta Ellis (calf) in street clothes, and it looks like his owners can expect a modest bump in production down the stretch. Parsons will get a favorable matchup vs. Kyle Singler and the Thunder on Wednesday, so owners in daily leagues should give him a long look.

Iman Shumpert "jammed" his left ankle during Sunday's game and coach David Blatt didn't seem overly concerned about the injury.

"I think he wanted to come back in there but we held him out for precautionary reasons," Blatt said. "I believe he'll be OK." Shumpert didn't return after the injury and we'll leave him on the injury report as a precaution, though it certainly helps that Cleveland doesn't play again until Thursday. If Shumpert does miss time, expect guys like James Jones, Shawn Marion and possibly Mike Miller to fill the void.

Kevin Love said that his lower back feels "good" and he does not expect to miss any games due to the injury he suffered on Sunday.

Love was elbowed in the lower back but it sounds like his decision to sit out the rest of Sunday's game was precautionary. "I just have to take these next couple days," Love said. We'll leave him on the injury report for now, but will take him off once he returns to practice this week. This is great news for fantasy owners, as the Cavs' two-game slate is already bad enough without an injury-related DNP.

Rajon Rondo stepped up in the absence of Monta Ellis (calf) in Sunday's loss to the Pacers, scoring 17 points with 10 assists, seven boards, two steals and one block in 38 minutes.

Rondo shot 8-of-14 from the field and hit his only free throw attempt on the night, and early indications suggests that he will be the biggest beneficiary if Ellis remains on the shelf (there is no timetable for his return). This was also the most minutes Rondo has played since joining the Mavericks, and he should be able to carry this momentum moving forward with the extra responsibility on offense.

Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies with a 20 & 13 double-double on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to earn a road win in San Antonio.

Memphis has dropped three straight games and they're just 11-10 since the All-Star break, a record that doesn't bode well with the postseason just a few weeks away. Z-Bo's team-high scoring came on 9-of-16 shooting, a solid performance that helps compensate for his utter lack of assists, steals or blocks.
Mar 29 - 9:31 PM

Kawhi Leonard carried the Spurs to a win over Memphis on Sunday with 25 points on 11-of-17 shooting, 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal.

DNP-CDs have been mercifully rare for the Spurs this season, but if Gregg Popovich does intend to rest his key players, there are two likely back-to-back sets coming up on Mar. 31/Apr. 1 and Apr. 7/8. There's obviously no need to panic, especially with Leonard -- the 23-year-old star scored 15 straight points in the fourth quarter tonight and he's reclaimed elite value despite playing a modest 33.1 minutes per game in March.
Mar 29 - 9:27 PM

J.J. Redick poured in 27 points to help L.A. fend off the Celtics on Sunday, hitting 11-of-15 FGs with five 3-pointers, five rebounds and four assists.

The Warriors may want to bring a firehose to Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers, as Redick has been torching opponents in March with averages of 20.6 points and 3.0 triples per game. His high-volume perimeter shooting hasn't affected his percentages, either, as he's made 49.3 percent of his field goals and hasn't missed a free throw since going 1-of-2 on Feb. 23.
Mar 29 - 9:14 PM

Michael Beasley suffered a stinger in his elbow during Sunday's game vs. the Pistons, and he was unable to return after just seven minutes of action.

Beasley's elbow flared up and he didn't have any mobility in his arm after the game, but the Heat didn't seem to be overly concerned and head coach Erik Spoelstra is hopeful that he will play vs. the Spurs on Tuesday. Beasley isn't a great option in fantasy leagues and hasn't been getting a lot of minutes even with the Heat dealing with a lot of injuries, so owners in most leagues should probably leave him on the wire.
Mar 29 - 9:04 PM

The Pistons fell in Miami on Sunday, 102-109, despite having Reggie Jackson score 31 points on 12-of-17 shooting with three 3-pointers, six rebounds and nine assists.

Jackson and Andre Drummond (32 points) were unstoppable but they were abandoned by their teammates, who combined for just 39 points on 14-of-49 shooting (28.6 percent). R-Jax was coming off a triple-double and his sluggish start after joining the Pistons is a fading memory as he carries owners deeper into the fantasy playoffs.
Mar 29 - 8:53 PM

Dwyane Wade took over Sunday's game while playing through a knee injury, dropping a game-high 40 points on 14-of-27 FGs and 12-of-13 FTs in 36 minutes of action.

His knee was drained on Saturday but he still suited up for the short-handed Heat, who began Sunday with a one-game cushion for the No. 7 seed. To his fantasy owners' delight, Wade added six boards, four assists and one steal with only one turnover. We're leaving him off the injury report in advance of Tuesday's game, but owners should double-check his status as a precaution.
