James Harden spent the entire 4th quarter on the bench in Monday's blowout loss to the Clippers.

A quick glance at Harden's minutes would lead one to think one of his myriad of injuries had flared up again, but coach Kevin McHale indicated the lack of minutes were due to the game being out of hand. Harden did have a few defensive lapses so there could be a coach's message hidden in here too, but his owners can rest easy with the knowledge that their fantasy team's centerpiece didn't sit with an injury.

Mike Budenholzer said that Taurean Prince will more than likely earn another start on Tuesday vs. Phoenix.

Thabo Sefolosha (groin), Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) will all be on the sidelines for Tuesday's game, so it would be surprising if Prince weren't in the starting lineup. In his first career start on Sunday, Prince popped off for 17 points, six boards, one assist, three steals, one block and two triples in 38 minutes, so he'll be someone to consider throwing out there as a streamer or DFS punt play on Tuesday night.

Paul Millsap (knee), Thabo Sefolosha (groin) and Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play vs. the Suns on Tuesday.

Despite an MRI on Millsap's knee coming back clean, the big man will miss his sixth game in a row. The Hawks do have three more games this week after Tuesday, but it's anybody's guess at this point if he will play. While he's said to be dealing with "left knee tightness," coach Mike Budenholzer said over the weekend that he also has some swelling. Ersan Ilyasova will draw another start at the four on Tuesday.

Kent Bazemore (knee) could return on Wednesday vs. the 76ers.

This means he will miss at least one more game vs. the Suns on Tuesday. Thabo Sefolosha (groin) is also out on Tuesday, meaning Taurean Prince will be a solid streaming option vs. the Suns -- Prince scored a career-high 17 points in his first NBA start against the Nets on Sunday with six rebounds, one assist, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 38 minutes. Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to be a must-start player until further notice.

Goran Dragic is playing through a "nagging foot injury."

The injury is so painful that the Heat training staff has been cutting a hole in the side of his sneaker to alleviate the pressure while he’s playing. There aren't any specifics, but this likely explains why Dragic has slowed down with averages of 15.6 points, 5.2 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 2.8 steals and 1.2 triples on 35.7 percent shooting over his last five games. The good news for fantasy owners is that DNPs will be unlikely down the stretch for Dragic with the Heat clinging onto the No. 8 seed.

James Harden (wrist) is practicing on Monday and will play vs. the Warriors on Tuesday.

He already said that he would play on Tuesday vs. the Warriors after aggravating his wrist on Sunday night, but it doesn't hurt to get more confirmation. Harden's owners should be in great shape with four games on the schedule this week.
Mar 27 - 1:22 PM

Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) did not participate in Monday's morning shootaround.

To be clear, he remains questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans. This means he will likely test out his quad in pre-game warmups. X-rays were negative and it shouldn't be a long-term issue, and Hayward does have a lot of incentive to play since the Jazz currently hold a 1.0 game lead over the Clippers for the No. 4 seed. If he can't go, Joe Ingles will be a solid streaming option in his absence.
Mar 27 - 1:03 PM

Al Jefferson (ankle) is expected to miss at least a few days according to coach Nate McMillan.

This means it's safe to rule him out for Tuesday's game vs. the Wolves. X-rays came back negative after he sprained his left ankle on Sunday, but Big Al woke up on Monday morning with a lot of swelling. He's also still on crutches and in a walking boot. In his absence, Lavoy Allen, Kevin Seraphin and Rakeem Christmas are all candidates for more minutes, but there are no fantasy pickups here.
Mar 27 - 12:44 PM

Kyle Korver (foot) will not play on Monday vs. the Spurs.

Not good. He's dealing with left foot soreness again, the same issue that sidelined him for seven games earlier this month. Fantasy owners can't mess around during the playoffs, and considering coach Tyronn Lue doesn't know when the sharpshooter will return, it makes sense to evaluate other options. With Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) considered questionable, J.R. Smith should get a lot of burn.
Mar 27 - 11:12 AM

Jahlil Okafor said that the 76ers are being "super cautious" with his right knee.

He has missed two games in a row with right knee soreness and nine total games on the season, and there currently isn't a timetable for his return. "If we were like on the verge of trying to get a playoff spot or something like that, I could go out there and play," Okafor said. "But Coach Brown and all of our people behind the scenes don’t believe it’s necessary for me to play if my knee is feeling sore and stuff like that." This has been a lost season for Okafor and fantasy owners should've moved on a long time ago. Richaun Holmes and Shawn Long will continue to see a bump in value while he's out.

The Blazers earned their 12th consecutive win vs. the Lakers on Sunday, led by Damian Lillard's 22 points, four 3-pointers, seven rebounds, five assists and three steals.

Lillard made 7-of-20 FGs and 4-of-7 FTs tonight, but he committed only one turnover in 30 minutes of action. The playing time barely topped C.J. McCollum (13 points, three assists, four turnovers) for a high among Portland's starters, as the lopsided score allowed coach Terry Stotts to lean heavily on his reserves. The Blazers are now in a virtual tie with Denver for the No. 8 seed, and owners can expect Lillard's best during Tuesday's crucial home game vs. the Nuggets -- Lillard said his team has to approach the game "locked-in like never before."
Mar 27 - 12:32 AM

Klay Thompson dropped a game-high 31 points on 12-of-18 shooting on Sunday, going 7-of-11 from deep with two rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 35 minutes.

Klay struggled on Friday with eight points on 3-of-14 shooting, but otherwise he's been on fire -- excluding that dud, he's averaging 27.7 points and 5.3 triples on 57.1 percent shooting over his previous six games. He single-handedly won the 3-point category for plenty of owners this week, making a ridiculous 21 treys.
