The Bulls plan to limit Joakim Noah's minutes this season in hopes of keeping his recurring plantar fasciitis problems under control.

The Bulls are going to try to rely on Nazr Mohammed to put in quality minutes as the back up center in hopes of keeping Noah healthy. Mohammed may not be ready for a heavy workload, so limiting Noah's minutes will be easier said than done. While Noah's playing time should be a minor concern in fantasy, he's still expected to be a very effective center, so draft him accordingly.

Dennis Schroder's toe is not broken and the injury isn't believed to be serious.

Schroder himself Tweeted the update and this is terrific news for the Hawks, especially since they're likely to rest Jeff Teague and other starters down the stretch. When Schroder will return is still unclear but he'll be a nice pickup once he's active -- he finished March with solid averages of 13.9 points, 1.2 threes, 2.6 boards, 6.0 assists and 0.5 steals in just 24 minutes per game.

Hassan Whiteside (hand) is expected to play on Tuesday.

Whiteside will come off the bench behind starting center Chris Andersen. His pain tolerance is a main concern for the Heat, as well as the fear that he'll re-tear his stitches before the wound fully heals. His offense is likely to suffer due to the bulky protective bandage on his hand, but his talent is great enough that he belongs in all active lineups.

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said he was not concerned about Dwyane Wade's knee.

Spoelstra added that Wade is past last week's issue, and he seems relatively fine. Wade will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs, and with Luol Deng (knee) out, he's going to be asked to do more on offense. He's coming off a 40-point performance from Sunday, so owners should feel confident plugging him into their active roster despite tonight's tough matchup against San Antonio.

Greg Monroe (knee) hopes to return for the Pistons' "last five games," according to Stan Van Gundy.

Monroe is slowly ramping up his activity and could return as soon as this weekend, according to SVG, though a return for the final five games would have him in uniform on Wednesday, Apr. 8. Anyone struggling to win this week should look for safer options, but this at least gives some hope to owners holding Monroe until the bitter end.

Chris Andersen (calf, shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.

Andersen will warm up with the intention of playing tonight, and things will be very interesting for Miami if he can't play. Udonis Haslem (flu) has already been ruled out, and Hassan Whiteside (hand) will be a game-time decision, so there's a chance we see some Michael Beasley at the center spot. Tim Duncan should have any easy time scoring tonight.

Udonis Haslem (flu) will not play Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

Chris Andersen (calf shoulder) and Hassan Whiteside (hand) will warmup with the intention of playing tonight, but both guys are going to be limited, so Erik Spoelstra is going to need to get creative with his rotations tonight with no truly healthy big man on the roster.
Mar 31 - 6:26 PM

Luol Deng (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.

With Deng out, Henry Walker will have the opportunity for another start, with Michael Beasley and James Ennis seeing extended minutes off the bench. Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic will run the show on offense, and both guys are worth a look in daily leagues. Walker can be viewed as a streamer option for those seeking some 3-point shooting and steals.

Hassan Whiteside (hand) said that pain tolerance will dictate whether he can play.

"It felt weird, but I’m gonna do the best I can," Whiteside said. "You’re gonna see a lot more lefty. As long as I don’t spread my fingers and they keep them taped together, I can’t reopen the stitches. It’s surrounded by a pad, so it can be slapped and everything. It’s just about what I can tolerate on the court with the pain. They cleared me. It’s just the performance and how well I can play." Whiteside remains questionable for tonight's game, but it sounds like even if he does play, he's going to be very limited on the offensive end. Udonis Haslem's won't be worth using in most leagues if Whiteside suits up.
Mar 31 - 6:17 PM

Rodney Stuckey (wrist) will play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Stuckey will draw a very favorable matchup against the Nets tonight, so make sure you have him on your active roster. C.J. Waton's value takes a hit with Stuckey active.
Mar 31 - 6:12 PM

Thaddeus Young will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Pacers, sending Mason Plumlee back to the bench.

Young will not be on a minutes limit tonight, so owners can feel confident plugging him into their active rosters. Plumlee didn't do much during his run with the starting unit, so the demotion to the second unit isn't going to do him any favors. In fact, Plumlee is averaging just 5.1 points and 4.8 rebounds on 43.6 percent shooting as a reserve, so it makes sense to drop him in standard leagues.
Mar 31 - 5:52 PM

Lakers' head coach Byron Scott believes that Jeremy Lin (illness) will be able to play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.

"I don’t think it’s serious. I think he’s just drained," said Scott. Lin is dealing with an upper respiratory infection, and owners can expect to get another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. If he is able to go, Wayne Ellington will likely head back to the bench, and Jabari Brown may fall out of the rotation. Stay tuned.
