Derrick Rose (knee) is expected to play roughly 20 minutes during Saturday's preseason game vs. the Pacers.

Rose's playing time will come in three stints, each 6-8 minutes, according to Tom Thibodeau. He hasn't played in an NBA game since April 2012 but he's 100 percent recovered from ACL surgery and shouldn't have playing-time restrictions in the regular season. The game will be nationally televised on NBATV.

Will Barton is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hornets due to foot soreness.

Barton has seen his minutes drop with Wilson Chandler and Danilo Gallinari healthy, so this new foot issue will give his owners even more incentive to drop him. If Barton sits on Friday, Jamal Murray could get a nice bump in minutes off the bench, but standard-league owners should probably look elsewhere.

Brandon Ingram (knee) will not play on Thursday vs. the Wolves.

While he was listed as questionable, coach Luke Walton made it sound like he didn't have a chance of playing in this one. The Lakers aren't considering shutting him down, so his next chance to play is on Saturday vs. the Clippers. The Lakers will start D'Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Corey Brewer, Julius Randle and Ivica Zubac. David Nwaba should get some extended run off the bench with Ingram out.

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said he won't rest any players on Thursday.

This means LeBron James, Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving will be a full go. Iman Shumpert (knee) and Richard Jefferson (knee) will play, while Kyle Korver (foot) is still out . The Cavs do play again on Friday vs. Philly, so a DNP-rest could be coming for James, Love and Irving if they see a lot of minutes tonight.

Wizards coach Scott Brooks said Marcin Gortat "needs to play better."

"Definitely needs to play better but we’ve got some options," Brooks said. Those "options" are Jason Smith, Ian Mahinmi and Markieff Morris, as the Wizards have been playing more small ball and Gortat has seen his minutes fall off since the All-Star break. In fact, he hasn't played in the fourth quarter of four straight games. He's slumping at the worst possible time for fantasy owners and is a drop candidate if there's a hot free agent available.

Chris Paul scored 27 points during a 133-124 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, 13 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

The Clippers just smashed to match a season-high 133 points in this win. Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, Paul and J.J. Redick reached the 20-point mark in the same game for the first time ever. CP3 appears to be out of his shooting slump and has now made 5-of-10 from deep in his last two, but there was never really much concern to begin with. Moving forward, the Clippers have a lot going on with playoff seeding, trailing the No. 4 seed Jazz by 1.5 games while holding a slim 1.0 lead over the Thunder. That should allow CP3 to log plenty of minutes in his team's final eight games.
Mar 30 - 2:01 AM

Blake Griffin scored 26 points with 10 rebounds, nine assists and two steals against the Wizards on Wednesday.

The Clippers offense was on fire and Blake's bucket with 5:43 left in the third made the Clippers the fastest team to 100 points in a game this season -- Lawler's law worked again today. Griffin's numbers were trending down with only 17.7 points per game over his previous 10, which has knocked him down to just fifth-round value per game on the year. Hopefully, this big game gets him going again.
Mar 30 - 1:55 AM

J.J. Redick scored a season-high 31 points with one assist and seven 3-pointers against the Wizards on Wednesday.

Nobody told the Wizards that Redick can shoot a little bit, and maybe they thought he wasn't playing despite his ankle injury from the weekend. Redick should also be a bigger part of the offense in the short term now that Austin Rivers (hamstring) is going to miss time. He was trending down, but now he's trending back up due to the Rivers injury.
Mar 30 - 1:43 AM

Coach Doc Rivers said Austin Rivers (hamstring) "will be out for a little while" and will not play on Thursday against the Suns.

He has hamstring soreness and the Clippers won't need to rush him back now that J.J. Redick is healthy. Redick is coming off a season-high 31 points and should benefit the most until Rivers comes back. Jamal Crawford figures to pick up some minutes and perhaps Raymond Felton plays a little more SG.
Mar 30 - 1:39 AM

Tony Parker failed to score in 24 minutes vs. Golden State on Wednesday, going 0-of-4 from the field with two assists, two steals, two turnovers and one rebound.

This was Parker's second scoreless game of the season, and it's the fourth time in seven games that he's scored four points or fewer. The veteran recently conceded that he's no longer needed to be aggressive offensively, and is instead looking to set up teammates, but he struggled in both of those aspects tonight. He faces another unique challenge vs. Russell Westbrook and the Thunder on Friday.
Mar 30 - 1:37 AM

John Wall scored 41 points against the Clippers during a 133-124 loss on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, eight assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes.

It's the most points he's scored on the road in his career, but the Wizards couldn't stop a nosebleed on defense during this loss. Wall's scoring is through the roof these days with at least 34 points in three straight while he's also seen 3.0 steals per game and plenty of other stats along the way. While the Wizards can't defend right now, Wall's fantasy owners have to be loving these high-scoring, fast-paced games.
Mar 30 - 1:37 AM

Mike Conley scored 16 points in the first quarter of Wednesday's home victory, which he finished with 36 points, a career-high seven 3-pointers, six assists, four steals, and three rebounds in 38 minutes.

Memphis scored a season-high 38 points in the first quarter alone tonight, thanks largely to Conley's explosion, and his 16 points matched a career-high for a single quarter. He's the alpha and omega of the Grizzlies' offense with Marc Gasol (foot) out of commission, and owners can expect more big lines if Gasol can't suit up on Friday and Sunday.
