There are "rumors swirling" that Marc Gasol suffered a torn left MCL on Friday night, according the 3 Shades of Blue.

We won't know anything about Gasol until an MRI confirms any diagnosis. There was an additional rumor that Zach Randolph told Tim Duncan that Marc Gasol tore his MCL. Kosta Koufos started the second half and Ed Davis will also help fill the void while the reigning Defensive Player of the Year is out.

Nikola MIrotic scored 26 points against the Thunder on Thursday with eight rebounds, one assist, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He actually didn't play great tonight, making just 5-of-15 from the field. However, he attacked the basket and made 14-of-16 from the line, which launched his usage rate to 30.7 tonight. Mirotic has clearly earned his playing time and he's now scored at least 23 points in each of his last three. In that span, Mirotic averaged 26.0 points, 8.3 boards, 1.3 blocks and 2.3 treys. He obviously has to be owned every league.

E'Twaun Moore was the unlikeliest hero of the night and drilled a game-winning 3-pointer with one second left to beat the Thunder 108-105 on Thursday, finishing with 19 points, four rebounds, two steals, one block and no turnovers.

He had a career high in scoring and made 9-of-10 from the field. Moore also did a bang-up job on Russell Westbrook late in the game and he's likely going to be earning his minutes. The Bulls are going to need someone to play shooting guard and it might be Moore, which mean there will be less minutes for Tony Snell, Aaron Brooks and Kirk Hinrich. He's still going to need to do it again because he scored a combined three points in his previous nine games. Just keep an eye on him in deep leagues.

Russell Westbrook's consecutive triple-double streak was snapped against the Bulls in a 108-105 loss on Thursday, scoring 43 points with eight rebounds, seven assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

That's still a ridiculous line and he now has three consecutive games of scoring at least 40. Westbrook was the OKC offense today, making 14-of-32 from the field and 12-of-15 from the line to give him an absurd usage rate of 50.5. Kobe Bryant has the record for usage rate in a season at 38.7 in 2005-06, but Westbrook has a legitimate chance to top him with his 38.1 entering tonight even before this monster game. In his last four games, he's averaged 42.8 points, 12.8 boards, 9.8 assists, 2.3 steals and 1.3 treys. He's a one-man offense.

Serge Ibaka bounced back in loss to the Bulls on Thursday with 25 points, nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and three blocks in 46 minutes.

He somehow only had two points and two boards against the 76ers on Wednesday, but filled the stat sheet tonight. Ibaka was magnificent in his other games since the break, averaging 15.9 points, 10.4 boards, 3.3 blocks and 0.5 steals in his previous eight games. Ibaka is one of the best power forwards in the NBA for fantasy and has missed just three games in his last five seasons.
Mar 5 - 10:46 PM

Steven Adams (hand) will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. the Bulls.

While Adams will remain sidelined for tonight's game, head coach Scott Brooks hinted that he may be able to return to the lineup for Sunday's game vs. Toronto. When Adams is able to return to action, he'll take away minutes from Mitch McGary and Nick Collison. None of these guys should be owned in standard leagues.
Mar 5 - 6:49 PM

Kevin Durant (foot) was spotted going through a shooting drill during Thursday morning's shootaround, and he appeared to be pushing off his right foot much better than he was just a week ago.

Durant is improving, but he will remain sidelined for Thursday's game vs. Chicago. He is without an official return date, and he has yet to go through a full contact practice with the team, but he has stated that he plans to return before the regular season ends. However, until that happens, Russell Westbrook will continue his phenomenal play as the heart of OKC’s offense, and he’ll be a very popular target in daily leagues.
Mar 5 - 5:56 PM

Paul George (leg) was noncommittal when asked about when he'd be able to return to the court this season.

"I didn't set any deadline," said George. "I said I was hopeful after two weeks of working out that I'd be in game-playing shape, but there's still no deadline." He also added that he feels he'll be brought along slowly if/when he is able to return to the court, but when he's been practicing, he has not experienced any pain that would hold him back from doing what he needs to do. We'll continue to track George's progress closely, and while he isn't a must-stash guy with no official return date on the calendar, his upside is certainly significant.

Nick Young (knee) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. Memphis.

Young has said that he's targeting a return for Sunday's matchup against the Mavericks, so we'll be considering him on the doubtful side of the questionable tag for Friday's game. When he is able to return to the lineup, Jeremy Lin's value could take a hit.
Mar 5 - 4:09 PM

Avery Bradley (left elbow strain) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Bradley isn't even traveling with the team right now, so we're going to have to consider him questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Magic as well. With Bradley sidelined, Evan Turner, Jae Crowder, and Isaiah Thomas will all have the opportunity to see extended minutes, with Thomas offering the most upside as the guy who will likely be asked to carry a heavier load on offense.
Mar 5 - 3:10 PM

Chandler Parsons (ankle) will remain sidelined for at least two more games.

That means Parsons will be unavailable for Thursday's game vs. the Trail Blazers, as well as Friday's matchup with the Warriors. He did however say that he is hopeful to suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers, so we'll be considering him questionable for that one. With Parsons sidelined, Richard Jefferson will continue to start with Al-Farouq Aminu seeing extended minutes off the bench.
Mar 5 - 2:55 PM

Updating a previous report, JaVale McGee will not be heading to Boston.

The two sides apparently couldn't come to an agreement on the terms of McGee's contract, so he will seek employment elsewhere. McGee is averaging a meager 4.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 0.9 blocks on the season, and unless your league awards points for appearances on Shaqtin' a Fool, McGee belongs on the waiver wire.
