Nicolas Batum (14 points, seven boards, eight assists) and Damian Lillard (22 points, eight rebounds, seven assists) both flirted with triple-doubles in the Blazers' 104-91 win over the Kings on Friday.

Lillard wasted no time this season going after his current first round value, while Batum has underperformed to a mild extent with third round value at this early juncture. While neither of them will be ridden as hard as they were last season, the flipside is that they'll probably improve their efficiency and take less chances with injuries throughout the year.

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

Donatas Motiejunas (back) will not play against the Wolves on Friday.

He could miss a couple more games because he couldn't even make it through shootaround today. With Donuts out, Josh Smith will start and could play minutes in the mid 30s. Expect to see more Trevor Ariza at the four.
Mar 27 - 6:22 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.
Mar 27 - 6:11 PM

Dwyane Wade (knee) is a game-time decision to face the Hawks on Friday.

Coach Erik Spoelstra hinted earlier today that Wade is a little closer to doubtful, so we're cautiously not expecting Wade to suit up tonight. If he is out, Mario Chalmers will likely slide into the starting lineup with Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson also stepping up.
Mar 27 - 6:09 PM

Mo Williams (sore knee) plans to play Friday vs. the Wizards.

Williams sat out practice on Thursday, but he'll try and give it a go tonight. Head coach Steve Clifford said that he will be monitoring Williams' sore knee closely in games, and he will limit his participation in practices. It sounds like Williams will give it a go tonight, but he could be yanked at the first sign of trouble, making him a risky play in standard leagues.
Mar 27 - 5:57 PM

Tim Hardaway Jr. (wrist) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Celtics, and he's unlikely for Saturday's game vs. the Bulls.

With Hardaway Jr. and Alexey Shved (ribs) sidelined, Langston Galloway will get all the run he can handle. Ricky Ledo could also enter the rotation, but Galloway is the better play in standard leagues.
Mar 27 - 5:55 PM

Mason Plumlee will start in place of Thaddeus Young (knee) on Friday night against the Cavs.

The last time Thaddeus Young was out of the starting lineup, the Nets went with a forward combo of Joe Johnson and Alan Anderson, but they'll go big against the Cavs. Plumlee and Brook Lopez were on the court together for about 12 minutes on Wednesday, so that should continue and both could play for about 20 minutes next to each other. Give Plumlee a look because he'll have a chance at a double-double.
Mar 27 - 5:50 PM

Dewayne Dedmon (left ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pistons.

It appears that Dedmon suffered a setback when he returned to action on Wednesday, and he could be looking at additional time on the sidelines. Channing Frye will have the opportunity to slide back into the starting lineup tonight, but he can only be viewed as a 3-point specialist in extremely deep leagues. On such a busy Friday night, there should be much better options available to slide into your active roster.
