Serge Ibaka scored a career-high 27 points in a loss to the Warriors on Thursday, adding 13 boards and three blocks in 42 minutes.

He shot 9-of-14 from the field and hit all nine attempts from the charity stripe. Ibaka's amount of shots from close range have been on the decline while his shooting percentages remain outstanding, so he really doesn't get the credit he deserves for developing on the offensive end. His slow start is a distant memory, making 68.4 percent of his shots from the field in his last five to go with 18.6 points per game in that span.

Derrick Rose underwent a meniscectomy on Friday morning, and he is expected to resume basketball activities in 4-6 weeks.

Pau Gasol is sick and was unable to complete Friday morning's shootaround.

We'll be considering Gasol questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves, and if he's unable to go, Taj Gibson would likely slide into the starting lineup with Nikola Mirotic seeing extended minutes off the bench. Both Gibson and Mirotic would make for quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues if Gasol is indeed ruled out for Friday's game. Stay tuned.

The Bulls have reportedly had preliminary discussions with representatives for Nate Robinson, Mikes James, and Jannero Pargo.

With Derrick Rose (knee) looking at an extended (and possibly season-long) absence, it appears Chicago would like to add another guard to their backcourt. However, with Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks already on the roster, it's unlikely any of these players being discussed would be able to carve out a role significant enough to matter in standard fantasy leagues. We'll be monitoring this situation closely, but for now it's safe to leave Robinson, James, and Pargo on the waiver wire.

Aaron Gordon (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

With Gordon sidelined, Channing Frye will see a healthy heaping of minutes. However, with season averages of just 7.6 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.9 three-pointers per game, Frye can't be viewed as anything more than a 3-point specialist in very deep leagues.
Feb 27 - 10:39 AM

Shane Larkin (illness) is a go for Friday's game vs. the Pistons.

With Jose Calderon (Achilles) on the shelf, Larkin will have an opportunity to slide into the starting lineup tonight. However, with season averages of just 5.6 points, 3.1 assists, and 1.3 steal on 39.2 percent shooting as a starter, he's not a great option in most leagues.

According to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com, the Cavs are officially out of the running for Ray Allen.

"Ray Allen is not going to sign with the Cavs," said Windhort. "I don't think he's going to play. If he decides he wants to, it won't be with the Cavs." Wherever Allen decides to play this season, or if he decides to play this season, should be of no concern to owners in standard leagues, as he's not going to be anything more than an end-of-the-bench kind of guy on a contending roster. The Hawks, Wizards, Warriors, and Spurs remain in the conversation for Allen’s services.

Bismack Biyombo (knee) participated in Thursday's practice, and he is targeting a return for either Friday's game vs. Boston or Sunday's game vs. Orlando.

Biyombo isn't a major piece of the Hornets' rotation, and with season averages of 3.4 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 1.3 blocks per game as a reserve he can't be viewed as anything more than a shot-blocking specialist in very deep leagues. However, when Biyombo is able to return to the lineup, he'll likely take away most of Jason Maxiell's minutes, rendering him a negligible option in all leagues.
Feb 27 - 9:37 AM

Alex Len double-doubled with 12 points and 11 rebounds in Thursday's overtime win over the Thunder, adding one assist and three blocks in a career-high 38 minutes.

Len has come a long way since the beginning of the season, and he has arguably been one of the hottest commodities in fantasy since the All-Star break with averages of 9.4 points, 10.8 boards and 3.4 blocks in 32 minutes per game over his last five. His ankle injury looks like a thing of the past, and as long as Len stays healthy his owners are going to be in for a fantastic finish to the season.
Feb 27 - 3:06 AM

Eric Bledsoe was a superstar against the Thunder on Thursday during a 117-113 overtime win, making 11-of-16 from the field for 28 points with 13 rebounds, nine assists, one steal, four blocks and two 3-pointers.

That's good for an effective field goal percentage of 75.0. In what was a very uptempo game, Bledsoe seemed to be in total control, which has been the story for his game lately. In his last six games, Bledsoe averaged 20.7 points, 7.3 boards, 7.2 assists, 1.7 steals, 1.3 blocks and 1.3 treys on 50.6 percent from the field. People don't call him Mini-LeBron for no reason.
Feb 27 - 2:48 AM

Russell Westbrook notched his second straight triple-double in Thursday's 117-113 overtime loss to the Suns, finishing with 39 points, 14 boards, 11 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes, though he did suffer a minor ankle tweak in the closing moments of the game.

That's good for a 48.3 usage rate. He was seen walking around the locker room with no visible limp after the game, so it doesn't look like he is in any danger of missing any action. Westbrook was able to find a tremendous amount of defensive rebounds and he carried the OKC offense tonight, especially in transition. He and teammate Serge Ibaka were No. 1 and 2 in fantasy value since the break. In addition to that, Westbrook is on pace with Oscar Robertson to become the second player in NBA history to average 30 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds in a month. If you're under 40 years old, you've never seen this before.
Feb 27 - 2:23 AM

Andrew Bogut couldn't break out of his slump against the Cavaliers on Thursday, scoring just six points with five boards, two assists and two blocks in 21 minutes.

He has averaged just four points per game over his last four, shooting just 37 percent from the floor over that span. Bogut is still worth holding onto for his upside in blocks and rebounding, but the Warriors will likely be very cautious with him down the stretch given his injury history. In fact, head coach Steve Kerr hinted that Bogut may be rested on Sunday vs. Boston or Monday vs. Brooklyn, so his owners should keep their head on a swivel for an update. If and when Bogut does sit out, expect Marreese Speights and David Lee to benefit the most.
