Blake Griffin shot 9-of-19 from the field for 18 points with six boards, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes in his return from a sore ankle injury on Friday.

He wasn't quite as aggressive on either end, but he wasn't moving slowly throughout the game. His lack of attacking has been a trend and this was the second game in a row in which he failed to shoot a free throw. That said, Griffin is fine and his prospective owners can draft him like they normally would.

Taurean Prince will start on Sunday vs. the Nets.

Mar 26 - 12:10 PM

Thabo Sefolosha (groin) will not play on Sunday vs. the Nets.

He joins Kent Bazemore (knee) and Paul Millsap (knee) on the injury report.

T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Hornets.

He should be good to go after a two-game absence. The Suns have said very little about Warren's injury, but the good news is that this is not the same foot that he fractured last year. Unless we hear of any restrictions, Warren's owners will want to plug him back into active lineups -- he's averaging 17.3 points on 58.3 percent shooting with 7.6 rebounds since the All-Star break. Derrick Jones. Jr. and Jared Dudley are the biggest losers with Warren back.

Hassan Whiteside (sprained ankle) feels "a lot better" and is expected to play on Sunday vs. the Celtics.

The big man sat out of Saturday's practice as a precaution, but it sounds like he's ready for a full workload. He was also talking about the matchup with Boston, so his status doesn't appear to be in jeopardy. We'll confirm that he's starting, but go ahead and get him active. According to Heat reporter Ira Winderman, Whiteside will be a "full go."

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (illness) is a game-time call on Sunday vs. the Hawks.

Fantasy owners know the drill here. The Nets are super cautious, so they may hold RHJ out if he's not feeling up to it. This also gives them an excuse to take a long look at K.J. McDaniels. If RHJ can't go, McDaniels and Caris LeVert will likely get the biggest boost, while the Nets won't be able to play as much small ball.
Mar 26 - 11:43 AM

An MRI on Paul Millsap's left knee came back clean according to Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer.

Millsap has already been ruled out for the fourth straight game on Sunday vs. the Nets, but based on Budenholzer's comments, the All-Star forward is likely day-to-day. His injury was previously described as "tightness" in his left knee, but Budenholzer added that he has some swelling as well. He should be considered questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Suns. Ersan Ilyasova will continue to be the primary beneficiary in his absence.
Mar 26 - 11:32 AM

Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not play on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

This will be his second game in a row on the shelf. He's dealing with soreness in his surgically-repaired knee, so the 76ers are going to be cautious moving forward. Richaun Holmes has been a must-own player for weeks, but Shawn Long is on the radar in deeper leagues after he scored a career-high 18 points with seven rebounds, one assist and two steals in 19 minutes vs. the Bulls on Friday.
Mar 26 - 11:25 AM

Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said Ryan Anderson will "probably" be out for Tuesday's game against the Warriors.

"I hate it for Ryan," D'Antoni said. "I hate that he's not here. But we have enough to cover it up." Anderson has already been ruled out for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder and he currently doesn't have a timetable to return. With Anderson out, the Rockets will likely have to play more small ball with Trevor Ariza at the four, and D'Antoni mentioned that Lou Williams, Eric Gordon and Sam Dekker will likely see a bump in minutes.

C.J. McCollum made scoring 32 points look easy during a 112-100 win over the Wolves on Saturday, making 11-of-13 from the field and all six free throws with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

Not bad on efficiency with a 102.3 true shooting percentage. Damian Lillard said McCollum is the best midrange player in the league, but McCollum said on the Blazers broadcast that he's the best "in the world." He may be right with C.J. way above league average in non-restricted paint scoring, midrange and on 3-pointers. For a guy who gets 48.3 percent of his shots on pull-ups, McCollum is vastly underrated as an elite scorer in the NBA. His fantasy owners certainly don't underrate him thanks to his top-20 value in standard leagues this season.
Mar 26 - 1:24 AM

Kris Dunn scored a career-high 17 points against the Blazers on Saturday, adding four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes.

It's looking like Kris Dunn shooting guard time. In the last two games, Dunn has played a combined 31 minutes next to Ricky Rubio and 37 minutes next to Tyus Jones -- the Dunn-Rubio lineups have been torched. Now that the Wolves are basically out of it, Dunn looks like he'll be contributing on a nightly basis. If you need a point guard, he's worth a look. He could be a sneaky player to have in the last full week of the season with five games, but only has three next week.
Mar 26 - 12:49 AM

Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points during a 106-98 win over the Knicks on Saturday, adding five rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

The minutes continue to be there and it looks like for the second year in a row, Kawhi will play more minutes per game after the break than he did before it. Leonard also hinted that he won't be seeing a decrease in minutes based on the tough upcoming schedule. "It's going to get us mentally prepared," Leonard said. This tough stretch starts against the Cavs on Monday as the Spurs start a four-game week.
