Derrick Rose suffered a right knee injury in the third quarter of Friday's game and will not return.

It didn't look good at all and he couldn't put any weight on his leg on his way back to the locker room. He had ACL reconstructive surgery on his left knee and not much else is known at this point. Kirk Hinrich will take over most of the point guard duties while Rose is out of the lineup.

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said Brandon Jennings will sign with the Hornets.

SVG coached Jennings in Detroit last season and said he spoke with his agent on Monday morning after the Knicks released him. It's possible that another team could grab Jennings off waivers, but SVG sounded pretty confident that the PG would end up in Charlotte. The Hornets just signed Briante Weber to a 10-day deal, but Jennings would be the clear favorite to back up Kemba Walker in Charlotte.

Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) is unlikely to play on Monday vs. the Raptors according to Ian Begley of ESPN.

He's day-to-day, so maybe we will see him back on Mar. 1 vs. the Magic. With Joakim Noah (knee surgery) likely out for the season, KP may spend more time at center down the stretch. Willy Hernangomez looks like a great option in all formats Monday, while Lance Thomas will likely start next to Carmelo Anthony if KP can't go. Thomas played 37 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday, scoring 11 points with six rebounds, two assists and one triple. To be clear, Thomas' ceiling is low.

Joakim Noah is expected to undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and miss the rest of the season.

Just when we thought his contract couldn't look any worse. This report comes from Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, so it's more than credible. Noah's hamstring is the reason he's been sidelined recently, so the knee issue is coming out of nowhere -- this is the same knee he injured back in 2014, but it's reportedly unrelated. We'll have an update when the Knicks address this, but Willy Hernangomez should be picked up in all standard leagues. Kyle O'Quinn gets a nice boost as well. Marc Berman of the NY Post is reporting that Noah's surgery is scheduled for Monday night.

Ben Simmons had a "minor foot procedure" to stimulate bone growth and accelerate healing.

He had bone marrow injected in his effective fracture area, but the 76ers said he will resume training by the end of the week. Simmons has already been ruled out for the season, but he will continue to have scans on his foot every month. For now, he's expected to be ready for the summer league.

Joel Embiid has some swelling in his left knee and is out indefinitely.

Embiid is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday afternoon, so maybe we'll get a better update on his timetable after that. He was originally ruled out through Mar. 3, but it sounds like he's looking at an extended absence. The playoffs are basically out of the question for Philly, so the shut-down risk here is huge. The outlooks for Jahlil Okafor and Richaun Holmes have improved with this report.

Kyle Korver (knee) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Bucks.

Korver was at the morning shootaround getting up some shots, so he's probably closer to probable. Whatever the case, we'll have a better idea after the pre-game warmups tonight. LeBron James is also questionable with an illness, while it's unclear if Deron Williams (trade) will be cleared in time. Iman Shumpert and Jordan McRae could see a bump in minutes if Korver is unable to play.

The Nets have officially waived Luis Scola.

Scola was playing on an expiring contract, but this will give him the chance to join a contender in what could be his final season in the NBA. With Scola no longer in the mix, Justin Hamitlon should have a few more minutes coming his way. Expect the Nets to sign another big with their open roster spot.
Feb 27 - 11:20 AM

LeBron James (illness) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Bucks.

If LeBron misses his second game in a row, Richard Jefferson will draw another start and will be a low-end streaming option, but Kyrie Irving will be the big winner -- Irving's usage rate without LeBron on the floor is 41.6. LeBron didn't attend shootaround, so he will likely end up being a game-time call.
Feb 27 - 11:13 AM

Thabo Sefolosha will start ahead of Tim Hardaway Jr. on Monday vs. the Celtics.

Sefolosha has played in two straight games after returning from a nine-game absence due to a groin injury. He's averaging 7.5 points, 4.1 boards, 1.5 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.7 triples in 27 starts this season, so he's more of a deep-league add if you need to stream some steals.

Magic coach Frank Vogel finally admitted that Aaron Gordon is better at power forward.

It only took Vogel four months, but better late than never. "Everybody’s now in their right position, quite frankly," Vogel said. "I think Aaron being a four is better for him. He did well at the three defensively, but he’s better at the four." Gordon said there's better floor spacing with him at the four and added that he feels like the team is quicker. Gordon had 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting with three rebounds, three assists, two steals and one turnover in 24 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday, so his fantasy arrow is pointing up for the final couple months of the season as he's going to be getting a lot more easy looks around the rim.

Patrick Beverley (groin) said that he will play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

"It's still a little tight, but [this is] that time of the season. Your body is not going to be 100 percent," Beverley said. "Tried to be cautious with it, push through it and try to keep this thing going. I'm mentally tough. I know I'm not going to be 100 percent; I'm not going to be 90 percent. But if I feel good, I'm going to try to give it a go no matter what." Beverley appeared to be fine on Saturday vs. the Wolves with 15 points, seven assists, four rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 29 minutes, so his fantasy owners should deploy him barring a late surprise.
