Derrick Rose shot 4-of-14 from the field for 13 points with four rebounds, six assists, one 3-pointer and eight turnovers in 32 minutes against the Sixers on Saturday.

He couldn't be stopped in the preseason, but his field goal shooting in the regular season is now at a putrid 28.8 percent. Rose also still hasn't been able to adjust to the speed of the game and his 17 turnovers in three games is unacceptable. The silver lining is that he looks healthy and has been able to get to the rim while he doesn't look too bad on defense. Hopefully his adjustment period won't be too much longer.

Pelicans head coach Monty Williams said that he expects Jrue Holiday (leg) will return before the regular-season ends, but he would not give a specific date.

This is an interesting development, however, Jrue has been sidelined since Jan. 12 and he would more than likely be eased back into the rotation when/if he does eventually return. He still has yet to go through a practice with the team, and given the uncertainty of this situation, it's probably best to leave Jrue on the wire in most leagues.

Donatas Motiejunas (back) is expected to miss the next 1-2 weeks.

He has low back pain and tightness, so the Rockets are going to be very thin at power forward. Motiejunas was playing very well and scored 21 points on Wednesday, but he's suddenly a cut candidate in all leagues. It'll be Josh Smith getting all the minutes he can handle until Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) can return -- he could be back next week.

Kevin Martin (hamstrings) and Ricky Rubio (ankle) will not play against the Rockets on Friday.

Martin said he expects to be better next week, so he is probably going to miss at least a couple more games. Andrew Wiggins has been logging major minutes and will look to strength his case for Rookie of the Year. Lorenzo Brown will be getting most of Martin's minutes.

Andrew Nicholson will slide into the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Pistons with Dewayne Dedmon (ankle) unavailable.

This will be Nicholson's second start of the season. He managed to put up 13 points, six rebounds and three assists during his last stint with the starting unit, but he's only worth a look as a last-minute streamer option in very deep leagues.
Mar 27 - 6:56 PM

Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr said that Klay Thompson (ankle) will no longer be with a hard minutes limit, but he would still like to keep at around 25-30 minutes.

Basically, if the Warriors can get another blowout tonight expect to see Klay on the bench early. That being said, even if Klay is held to the lower-end of the minutes spectrum, that's still plenty of time for him to produce quality statistics for his fantasy teams, and remains a must-start guy every time he's in uniform. Get him active.
Mar 27 - 6:49 PM

Dwyane Wade (knee) is in the starting lineup against the Hawks on Friday.

Apparently Wade really wants to play on 2 Chainz night in the ATL. He was not expected to play earlier today and skipped shootaround this morning. For what it's worth, Wade was in the starting lineup on Wednesday, but he didn't play in that game. Start him at your own risk in daily leagues.
Mar 27 - 6:40 PM

Josh Smith will slide into the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves, with Donatas Motiejunas (back) unavailable.

With Motiejunas and Terrence Jones (ribs, lung) out, and Dwight Howard on a minutes limit tonight, J Smoov is going to get all the run he can handle in a very favorable matchup with the Wolves. He looks like a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
Mar 27 - 6:25 PM

Bradley Beal (ankle) will start against the Hornets on Friday.

The Wizards dodged a bullet here with Garrett Temple (hamstring) out and this injury also occurring to Beal's troublesome right leg. He can be started in all leagues tonight in a very important game for the Wizards.
Mar 27 - 6:25 PM

Robert Covington will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Clippers.

Covington has been en fuego over the last two, draining 11 three-pointers while offering a little bit of everything. Make sure you have him in your active lineup. It's not clear at this point if Jason Richardson will be rested, or if he's simply coming off the bench, but he's been pretty awful lately so his status shouldn't matter in most leagues.
Mar 27 - 6:21 PM

Jeremy Lin (illness) will play against the Raptors on Friday night.

Considering the Lakers are holding out healthy players, it's a surprise to see him active with his sinus issue. If he's limited, Wayne Ellington and Jabari Brown will get more playing time.
Mar 27 - 6:13 PM

Chris Andersen (calf) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

With Hassan Whiteside (hand) and Andersen unavailable, Udonis Haslem will likely be forced into heavy minutes again tonight, and he's worth a look as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Henry Walker, Luol Deng, and Michael Beasley will all likely split minutes at the four-spot, with Deng offering the most upside out of that group.
