Thunder waive C Daniel Orton.

The Thunder have plenty of options at center, including Kendrick Perkins, Steven Adams and Hasheem Thabeet, not to mention Serge Ibaka and Nick Collison, so there was simply no room for Orton. The Thunder have one more cut to make, as the roster stands at 16.

Terrence Jones returned to action in the first half on Friday following his right hip strain.

He was in the locker room for about five minutes and returned to the bench. Jones is probably going to be fine, but we'll keep an eye on him. Hopefully this injury didn't mess up his right leg nerve issue from earlier this season. Jones has been a top-10 player since the break.
Mar 6 - 9:03 PM

Goran Dragic (back) will not return on Friday.

The Heat are razor thin with their depth right now. Dragic has been dealing with a back problem all week and it's likely an aggravation here. Dragic should be considered questionable to play against the Kings on Saturday. He finished with 18 points, five boards, seven assists and one 3-pointer. Shabazz Napier would benefit the most sans the Dragon while Mario Chalmers will also help out.
Mar 6 - 9:02 PM

P.J. Tucker checked in for the Suns on Friday with three minutes left in the first quarter.

He missed the team bus today, which is the second time it's happened this season. The last time he missed the bus, he missed a game in Boston back in November. He should slot into Marcus Morris' rotational minutes and we'll let you know who starts the second half.
Mar 6 - 8:29 PM

Marcus Morris will replace P.J. Tucker in the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. Brooklyn.

Tucker is being benched because he missed the bus to shootaround, so it sounds like this could be a one-time thing. Morris' numbers as a starter or a reserve are nearly identical, so he's not going to see a major bump in value just because he's starting.
Mar 6 - 7:46 PM

Henry Walker will replace Luol Deng (thigh) in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Wizards.

Walker is capable of the occasional scoring outburst, and he'll have plenty of opportunity tonight with both Deng and Dwyane Wade (hip) on the shelf, so he's worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. James Ennis and Michael Beasley will see extended minutes off the bench.
Mar 6 - 6:56 PM

Mario Chalmers (knee) and Chris Andersen (body) are active for Friday.

The Heat are starting Tyler Johnson over Chalmers, which shows how much confidence they have in Johnson right now. Chalmers is still going to get a chance to play 24-30 minutes and is worth a look as a spot-starter in some leagues.
Mar 6 - 6:55 PM

Tyler Johnson (ankle) will start against the Wizards on Friday.

The Heat won't have Dwyane Wade tonight due to a hip injury and he could miss more time. Johnson did have a career-high 26 points on Monday and he's earned some playing time. He's worth a look in deep leagues.
Mar 6 - 6:51 PM

Luol Deng (thigh) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

Miami is going to be hurting for healthy bodies in this one with both Dwyane Wade (hip) and Deng out. Goran Dragic will likely run the show on offense, and if there were ever a time for Michael Beasley to step up as a scorer, this would be it. Henry Walker will step into the starting lineup, while James Ennis and Beasley will have the opportunity to pick up some extended minutes tonight. Both Walker and Beasley are worth a look in daily leagues.
Mar 6 - 6:49 PM

Dwyane Wade (hip) will not play against the Wizards on Friday.

Wow. The Heat are in deep trouble with their depth. They will start Tyler Johnson and he could get some big minutes tonight. Goran Dragic is going to get his best chance to shine tonight and could have himself a big night. As for Wade, it's tough to tell how much time he's going to miss and he should be considered questionable for Saturday.
Mar 6 - 6:47 PM

Jae Crowder will slide into the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans with Avery Bradley (elbow) sidelined, shifting Evan Turner over to the two-spot.

Crowder will likely see a boost in value running with the starting unit, and he'll look to keep his momentum going after putting up 18 points during his last game. Head coach Brad Stevens said he elected to go with Crowder instead of Isaiah Thomas because he doesn't want to disturb Thomas' rhythm with the second unit. However, Thomas will likely come into the game early, and Boston will look to him as their go-to guy on offense, so he'll see a boost in value as well with Bradley out.
Mar 6 - 6:34 PM

James Johnson will come off the bench for Friday's game against the Hornets.

Head coach Dwane Casey said that he'll be shuffling guys in and out of the starting lineup based on the matchup for the final 21 games of the season, so this is him staying true to his word. Terrence Ross will replace Johnson in the starting lineup tonight, but he could just as easily head to the bench in the next one. Johnson is still worth owning in standard leagues.
