Jimmer Fredette was left open for most of Thursday's game and hit five 3-pointers, finishing with 23 points, four boards, five assists and two steals on 9-of-15 shooting.

The obligatory 'it's preseason' is required here and Jimmer won't be doing this much, if at all this season. The Kings do need some shooters on the perimeter, but with the way coach Mike Malone preaches defense, it's not going to help Fredette's chances for minutes.

Michael Beasley suffered a left knee sprain on Monday vs. the Cavs and will not return.

The Bucks initially called Jabari Parker's injury a knee sprain, so Beasley isn't out of the woods yet and will likely have additional tests. He was in obvious pain and could only put a little bit of weight on his leg as his teammates helped him back to the locker room. He finished with 11 points in nine minutes. Mirza Teletovic will get a short-term boost with Khris Middleton resting tonight.

Michael Beasley injured his left knee on Monday vs. the Cavaliers and went back to the locker room.

It didn't look good at all and his teammates had to carry him to the locker room. The Bucks will have an update shortly, but we'd be surprised if his night wasn't done. Khris Middleton is being rested, so we could see more of Mirza Teletovic and Tony Snell tonight.

Updating a previous report, Thon Maker started over John Henson on Monday vs. the Cavaliers.

Henson was listed as the official starter, but this isn't the first time the Bucks have listed the wrong starting lineup. Maker is prone to foul trouble and isn't a great fantasy option until he gets consistent minutes above 20 -- he's averaging 16.7 minutes per game as a starter.

Deron Williams will not be available for Monday's game against the Bucks.

Head coach Tyronn Lue is hopeful to have Williams available for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, but he will not be able to make his Cavs' debut tonight. Williams lost a ton of value with the move to Cleveland, so owners in most leagues should probably just move on and send him to the wire.

Kevin Durant (hand) will play Monday vs. the 76ers.

Durant was probably heading into this one, so no surprises here. With Durant back in action, Patrick McCaw will return to the bench, and guys like Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson will sacrifice some touches on offense. Additionally, head coach Steve Kerr said that he will not be resting any of his guys for Monday's game against the 76ers or Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.
Feb 27 - 5:45 PM

Avery Bradley will return to the starting lineup for Monday's matchup against Atlanta, sending Jaylen Brown back to the bench.

Bradley has missed the past 23 games for the Celtics, and he'll be working with a 15-20 minutes limit for the rest of the week, so he's definitely not a "must-start" kind of guy in his first game back. Still, this is very encouraging, and he should be fully up to speed once the fantasy playoffs kickoff. As for Brown, his value will take a pretty substantial hit with Bradley back in action, as will Marcus Smart. Isaiah Thomas' usage will also dip once Bradley is fully up to speed.
Feb 27 - 5:44 PM

Richard Jefferson will replace Channing Frye in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with Milwaukee.

Head coach Tyronn Lue described this move as a matchup-based decision, as he'd like Frye to spend more time guarding Monroe in the second-unit, and he feels Jefferson will match up better with Michael Beasley. The move makes sense, but there won't be any major fantasy implications here, as Jefferson tends to be irrelevant regardless of how he enters the game.
Feb 27 - 5:32 PM

Kyle Korver (knee) will play Monday vs. the Bucks.

Korver looked fine when going through shootaround, and there's been no discussion of a minutes limit, so his owners can feel free to fire him up for a favorable matchup against Milwaukee.
Feb 27 - 5:29 PM

LeBron James (illness) will play Monday vs. the Bucks.

James will be returning from a one-game absence, and head coach Tyronn Lue is opting to go with a small ball lineup featuring Kyrie Irving, Iman Shumpert, James, Richard Jefferson and Tristan Thompson, with Channing Frye coming off the bench. James put up 29 points with a full stat line in his last matchup with the Bucks, so make sure you have him active.
Feb 27 - 5:27 PM

Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Raptors, although he's expected to play Wednesday vs. the Magic.

This will be Porzingis' second straight game on the sidelines, but it seems like a pretty minor issue with the Knicks expecting him back on Tuesday. Joakim Noah (knee) is also out tonight, so we should see plenty of Willy Hernangomez and Kyle O'Quinn, with Hernangomez being the more attractive fantasy target. Lance Thomas and Mindaugus Kuzminskas could also see some more minutes, but that doesn't mean all that much.
Feb 27 - 5:25 PM

Kenneth Faried (back) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Bulls.

Faried getting ruled out a full 24 hours in advance of the tip-off is slightly concerning, although that could have something to do with the fact that Tuesday's game will be the first of a back-to-back set. Wilson Chandler got the start in his place on Sunday, so he'll likely be looking at another start on Tuesday night. For now, we'll consider Faried questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.
