DeMarcus Cousins is "on course" to earn a contract extension before the Oct. 31 deadline, according to ESPN.com.

Cousins is angling for a five-year maximum extension worth $80 million or more, which would require the Kings using their 'designated player' tag to extend him. The deal could be finalized before the Kings open training camp next week, but either way it sounds like the new regime in Sacramento is eager to made DMC their franchise big man.

Ricky Rubio (left hip soreness) didn't practice on Wednesday.

This is worrisome news for Rubio's fantasy owners. He was surging before getting hurt on Feb. 9 and we were optimistic that he'd be ready after the break, but he's still receiving treatment on his hip. Owners should make contingency plans for the weekend, but for now we're calling him questionable for games on Friday (vs. Portland) and Saturday (vs. Dallas). If he can't suit up, Donovan Mitchell will have the ball in his hands more often than not, while Royce O'Neale and Joe Ingles also stand to benefit.

Rudy Gay (heel) will return on Friday night against the Nuggets.

The Spurs get some good news after coach Gregg Popovich said Kawhi Leonard (quad) could miss the rest of the season. Gay's heel injury has been a problem for him throughout the season and he's been out since Dec. 28. He'll likely have a minutes cap upon his return, but he's worth a look in 12-team leagues.

Coach Gregg Popovich said he'd be surprised if Kawhi Leonard (quad) returned this season.

Not good. It's unclear if Pop means just the regular season or for the playoffs, as well. The Spurs have not been very forthcoming with updates on Leonard, and there's been no talk of him progressing in his rehab. The Spurs will be giving a longer look at Dejounte Murray as a starter and now Kyle Anderson should be starting for the foreseeable future. Leonard's fantasy owners may want to consider dropping him in what has been a lost season.

Trevor Ariza (hamstring) returned to practice on Wednesday, and he will play on Friday against the Wolves.

He's been working out full speed for at least a week, so he should be ready to roll for Friday night and may not even have restrictions. Ariza suffered his injury on Jan. 28, so he's had three weeks to recover. His return means Luc Mbah a Moute, P.J. Tucker and Gerald Green will lose minutes. Ariza should be owned in all leagues.

Kelly Olynyk (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for Friday against the Pelicans.

So that means the All-Star break likely wasn't enough for Olynyk's shoulder to get right after the injury on Feb. 5. Olynyk played a whopping 40 minutes in the game prior to injury and he was taking minutes away from Hassan Whiteside. Olynyk being out should open up a few extra minutes for Whiteside, James Johnson and Bam Adebayo.

Coach Doc Rivers said Avery Bradley (groin) is "50/50" to play on Thursday against the Warriors.

Additionally, Rivers said Bradley's injury is going to be a season-long issue, and his availability right now appears to be 50/50 every night going forward. Bradley had a groin injury just before he was traded to the Clippers, and now it looks like it may not go away. His fantasy owners may not want to deal with this issue and just drop him, especially with how poorly he's played this season.
Feb 21 - 2:10 PM

Darren Collison (left knee) will miss at least one more week of action.

Collison is currently at the two-week mark of his initial 2-3 week timetable, so maybe he'll be able to get back to the court sometime next week. With him out, Cory Joseph will continue to start at the one, with Joe Young acting as his primary backup, but those guys have been too inconsistent to be trusted in most 12-team leagues. Collison is worth stashing just about everywhere.
Feb 21 - 1:58 PM

Marcus Smart (hand) has been cleared to practice on Thursday and will play Friday against the Pistons.

Smart should slot right back into his 30-minute reserve role with the Celtics, which will result in fewer minutes for Terry Rozier. He's worth owning for his dimes, treys and steals, but just know that he's hitting just 35.7% of his shot attempts this season.
Feb 21 - 1:18 PM

Glenn Robinson III (left ankle) has been cleared to return and he expects to play Friday vs. the Hawks.

Head coach Nate McMillan said he "could see" GRIII earning minutes in the 5-10 minute range on Friday night, but wouldn't guarantee he'd actually get out there. Either way, he'll be eased back into things slowly, and with how well Bojan Bogdanovic has played this year, it'll be tough for GRIII to earn enough minutes to matter in most formats.
Feb 21 - 1:06 PM

Kenny Atkinson believes that D'Angelo Russell is "starting to round into form," but he doesn't think he's at "peak level" just yet.

Russell has eclipsed the 30-minute mark just once since coming back from what was a relatively minor knee procedure, but he should be better over this second half of the season. Atkinson has hinted that he'll eventually move Russell back into the starting five, which would likely shift Allen Crabbe back to the second unit.
Feb 21 - 1:00 PM

Markelle Fultz (right shoulder rehabilitation) will remain on the sidelines for Thursday's game against the Bulls.

It seems more and more likely that we won't see Fultz take the court again this season, so he can be left on waivers in all re-draft leagues.
