Greg Smith (hip) did not play in Saturday's exhibition.

Smith returned to practice on Thursday and his absence was likely just a precaution. If he's in any danger of missing opening night, we'll let you know.

Rudy Gay scored 39 points on 16-of-26 shooting (3-of-6 from deep, 4-of-5 from the line) with eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks in Friday's loss to the Magic.

Gay and DeMarcus Cousins (29 & 12) are going to get theirs anytime they line up on the floor for the Kings. Both have nagging injuries, however, and with the Kings tanking right now they're both risks to miss games and owners need to keep a close eye on that. Neither of them played up to their capabilities in the ugly loss, despite the huge numbers.

Hassan Whiteside was benched for the final 19:35 of Friday's loss to the Wizards, finishing with 10 points, two rebounds and one block in 20 minutes.

It's been a long time coming, but Whiteside finally had a bad game and this was not due to an injury or foul trouble. Coach Erik Spoelstra did say it was because of fatigue. "He was very good in the last game and he has an opportunity to get after it again tomorrow," Spoelstra added. Whiteside still has his fair share of problems as a player, but it's obviously going to take more than one bad game to say he's going to lose minutes. He'll be a must-start player against his former team, the Kings.

Coach Brett Brown could play Thomas Robinson more going forward.

"I think he's going to force me to play him more minutes," Brown said. Robinson has basically had his minutes capped at 15 most nights, but he has provided a ton of energy, especially on the glass. He double-doubled on Friday with 11 points, 12 boards and one foul against the Jazz on Friday. Against a team like the Hawks on Saturday, we might see Robinson log 24 minutes. Give him a look if you're looking for a double-double to stream.

Gordon Hayward scored a game-high 25 points against the 76ers on Friday during an 89-83 win, adding nine rebounds, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He was coming off one of his worst games from a usage standpoint, attempting just 11 shots from the field and two from the line in 37 minutes against the Celtics. Hayward was off to a bad start in the second half before tonight, averaging 17.3 points, 4.7 boards, 4.7 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.9 treys on 38.7 percent from the field in his previous seven. He'll get hot again.

Al Jefferson scored 23 points against the Raptors during an impressive 103-94 victory on Friday with 13 boards, five assists, one steal and two blocks in 34 minutes.

He was a monster after the break last year and he's really getting hot again. In his last five, Jefferson averaged 18.6 points, 10.6 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.6 steals. He leads the NBA in post-up points by over 100 points and the Hornets will give him even more room to operate once Kemba Walker (knee) comes back. Jefferson has a good chance to be a top-20 player the rest of the way and has been in the top 25 in the last month.
Mar 6 - 11:30 PM

Kyle Lowry returned from a three-game absence on Friday against the Hornets during a 103-94 loss, scoring 25 points with five rebounds, five assists and five 3-pointers in 38 minutes.

Apparently that rest served him well. Although, only Lowry and DeMar DeRozan scored in double figures tonight and those two guys had no help on offense. Lowry's uncharacteristic month in February should be behind him and he might be back to being a top-20 guy like he was last season.
Mar 6 - 11:18 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored a game-high 30 points against the Hornets on Friday with two rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block on 14-of-26 from the field.

After a putrid start to his second half, DeMar is coming around. In his last three games, he averaged 30.0 points, 4.0 boards, 2.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 treys on 52.2 percent from the field and 100 percent from the line. If he's even close to being this good, his fantasy owners are going to be thrilled. He look to stay hot against the Thunder on Sunday.
Mar 6 - 11:14 PM

Kelly Olynyk started the second half against the Pelicans on Friday.

He hasn't scored any field goals, but he looks a lot better than he did on Wednesday. Olynyk should be owned in all standard leagues while Tyler Zeller is going to lose some playing time.
Mar 6 - 9:20 PM

Dirk Nowitzki and Amare Stoudemire are available to play against the Warriors on Friday.

It's the only back-to-back game for the month of March, so there was a chance both guys were going to sit. However, not having Chandler Parsons has really caused some depth issues. Dirk has been in a slump and hopefully he gets it turned around tonight.
Mar 6 - 9:14 PM

J.J. Barea (thumb) will play against the Warriors on Friday and Devin Harris (hand) will not.

The Mavs really need Barea tonight or else they would have had to turn to Raymond Felton. Barea should get minutes in the 20s tonight and is worth a look as a deep-league stream play.
Mar 6 - 9:09 PM

Jerami Grant is dealing with back spasms on Friday and will not return.

He had a lower back contusion last week and this injury could be related. Grant has been one of the best rookies at getting to the line and he's also been adept at adding defensive stats. Grant was earning some minutes and finished tonight with five points, two boards, one assist and one 3-pointer. If he's out, Robert Covington, Luc Mbah a Moute and JaKarr Sampson would play more.
