Updating a previous report, the Pacers and Paul George are still negotiating the details of his contract extension.

Y! Sports reported late on Sunday that the two sides were "finalizing a five-year, $90 million-plus maximum contract extension," and George has been talking like it's a done deal. However, on Monday Larry Bird said, "I know Paul's worth ... It's all about money. Yes, he wants to be here. He's told me that a million times. We want him here so let's just find a [salary] number that works for both." There's some angling for leverage going on here, but it would be very surprising if a deal isn't struck by training camp.

Al Jefferson (left ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's matchup with Minnesota.

Nate McMillan said that at the very least he's expecting Jefferson to spend a couple days on the sidelines, and considering Jefferson was recently spotted on crutches and in a walking boot, we'd considered him doubtful for Wednesday's game in Memphis as well. Lavoy Allen and Kevin Seraphin will likely pick up most of Jefferson's minutes, but that really doesn't mean much at all in fantasy hoops.

Sean Kilpatrick (strained left hamstring) is being listed as probable for Tuesday's matchup with the 76ers.

Kilpatrick has spent the past seven games on the sidelines with the hamstring issue, but it sounds like he'll be back in action on Tuesday night. With Kilpatrick expected to be active, there won't be quite as many minutes available for guys like Randy Foye, Archie Goodwin and K.J. McDaniels.

Bojan Bogdanovic (back) and Ian Mahinmi (hip) practiced in full on Monday.

Bogdanovic sat out Saturday's game with a stiff back, and Mahinmi was limited to nine minutes after catching a knee to the hip via Richard Jefferson on Saturday night, but them going through a full practice is a good sign regarding their status for Tuesday night's matchup with the Lakers. Owners can expect to get another update following Tuesday morning's shootaround, but if Bogdanovic is able to return to the court, Kelly Oubre's minutes will take a hit.

Brandon Ingram (right knee) did not practice on Monday and is being listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

Corey Brewer got the start in Ingram's place on Sunday, but only managed to contribute three points, two boards, one assist, one steal, one 3-pointer and two blocks in 19 minutes, so while he could be looking at another start on Tuesday night, he's not a very attractive target in most scenarios. David Nwaba and Larry Nance Jr. figure to pick up some extra minutes if Ingram is out again on Tuesday, with Nance offering the most upside out of that group. Stay tuned.

Mike Budenholzer said that Taurean Prince will more than likely earn another start on Tuesday vs. Phoenix.

Thabo Sefolosha (groin), Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) will all be on the sidelines for Tuesday's game, so it would be surprising if Prince weren't in the starting lineup. In his first career start on Sunday, Prince popped off for 17 points, six boards, one assist, three steals, one block and two triples in 38 minutes, so he'll be someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or DFS punt play on Tuesday night.

Paul Millsap (knee), Thabo Sefolosha (groin) and Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play vs. the Suns on Tuesday.

Despite an MRI on Millsap's knee coming back clean, the big man will miss his sixth game in a row. The Hawks do have three more games this week after Tuesday, but it's anybody's guess at this point if he will play. While he's said to be dealing with "left knee tightness," coach Mike Budenholzer said over the weekend that he also has some swelling. Ersan Ilyasova will draw another start at the four on Tuesday.
Mar 27 - 1:52 PM

Kent Bazemore (knee) could return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

This means he will miss at least one more game vs. the Suns on Tuesday. Thabo Sefolosha (groin) is also out on Tuesday, meaning Taurean Prince will be a solid streaming option vs. the Suns -- Prince scored a career-high 17 points in his first NBA start against the Nets on Sunday with six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to be a must-start player until further notice.

Goran Dragic is playing through a "nagging foot injury."

The injury is so painful that the Heat training staff has been cutting a hole in the side of his sneaker to alleviate the pressure while he’s playing. There aren't any specifics, but this likely explains why Dragic has slowed down with averages of 15.6 points, 5.2 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.8 steals and 1.2 triples on 35.7 percent shooting over his last five games. The good news for fantasy owners is that DNPs will be unlikely down the stretch for Dragic with the Heat clinging onto the No. 8 seed.
Mar 27 - 1:38 PM

James Harden (wrist) is practicing on Monday and will play vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

He already said that he would play on Tuesday vs. the Warriors after aggravating his wrist on Sunday night, but it doesn't hurt to get more confirmation. Harden's owners should be in great shape with four games on the schedule this week.
Mar 27 - 1:22 PM

Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) did not participate in Monday's morning shootaround.

To be clear, he remains questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans. This means he will likely test out his quad in pre-game warmups. X-rays were negative and it shouldn't be a long-term issue, and Hayward does have a lot of incentive to play since the Jazz currently hold a 1.0 game lead over the Clippers for the No. 4 seed. If he can't go, Joe Ingles will be a solid streaming option in his absence.
Mar 27 - 1:03 PM

Al Jefferson (ankle) is expected to miss at least a few days according to coach Nate McMillan.

This means it's safe to rule him out for Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves. X-rays came back negative after he sprained his left ankle on Sunday, but Big Al woke up on Monday morning with a lot of swelling. He's also still on crutches and in a walking boot. In his absence, Lavoy Allen, Kevin Seraphin and Rakeem Christmas are all candidates for more minutes, but there are no fantasy pickups here.
