Derrick Williams will start at small forward for the Kings on Friday.

Coach Mike Malone didn't waste any time and will put his newly-acquired forward in with his first unit. Williams has played most of his time at power forward with the Wolves and has struggled in his action at small forward. He's capable of putting up some steals, blocks and triples, so he's worth a look as long as you're not cutting a reliable player to pick him up.

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.

The Knicks are planning to use their open roster spot to sign Chasson Randle.

Randle was with the Knicks during the offseason, but was waived after suffering an orbital wall fracture. He ended up in Philly, but was eventually waived as the 76ers needed his roster spot to acquire Andrew Bogut in the Nerlens Noel trade. Randle has some talent and is a solid 3-point shooter, so he could be very interesting later in the season if Derrick Rose gets hurt or is shut down. He will be signed for the remainder of the season and will have a team option for next season.

The Knicks will waive PG Brandon Jennings.

It's a sign that the Knicks are ready to rebuild, as Jennings is on an expiring $5 million contract and they are planning to use his roster spot to sign Chasson Randle. Jennings averaged 8.6 points and 4.9 assists with the Knicks, but only shot 38.0 percent from the field. Maybe he lands in an ideal situation for fantasy value, but he's not a great stash at the moment. He will more than likely join up with a playoff team, so we're not optimistic.

Chris Paul dished out 17 assists with zero turnovers on Sunday, adding 15 points and nine rebounds in 41 minutes during an overtime win vs. Charlotte.

CP3 had never recorded seven assists and five rebounds in a single first quarter in his esteemed career, but he did it in the first quarter tonight. He also passed John Stockton with the most games of at least 15 points and 15 rebounds without a single turnover, having done it six times. He shot an uncharacteristic 4-of-18 from the field tonight, but needless to say, he's looked perfectly healthy since returning ahead of schedule from thumb surgery.
Feb 27 - 12:54 AM

Blake Griffin made a career-high three 3-pointers vs. Charlotte on Sunday to finish with 43 points (15-of-26 FGs, 10-of-16 FTs), 10 rebounds, five assists and two steals.

Blake's 43 points were the most scored by a Clippers player this season. The Hornets are giving up a league-high 11.3 triples per game and Blake took full advantage of their perimeter defense. He also did plenty of work in the paint, including one soaring putback dunk, and concerns about his explosion after knee surgery are getting quieter on a nightly basis. The star PF even logged 42 minutes with just one turnover tonight, rounding out a stellar performance.
Feb 27 - 12:52 AM

DeAndre Jordan piled up 20 points and 19 rebounds during an overtime win on Sunday, making 9-of-10 shots with three steals, two blocks and one assist.

DJ played 43 minutes and he was a tolerable 2-of-4 at the FT line, even though Charlotte committed a few intentional fouls late in the game. He went through a fallow period without Chris Paul prior to the All-Star break, but with CP back Jordan's owners can expect his typically dominant production.
Feb 27 - 12:51 AM

Nicolas Batum set a new season high with eight 3-pointers on Sunday, finishing with 31 points, eight rebounds, four assists and one block in 43 minutes.

The Clippers have held opponents to 9.0 threes per game this season, sixth-fewest in the league, which makes Batum's eruption surprising. The fact that all eight of his threes came in the second half and overtime makes it surreal, as he helped the Hornets stay in this game until the bitter end of OT. The veteran has consistently flirted with top-40 value in roto leagues this season.
Feb 27 - 12:42 AM

Kemba Walker carried the Hornets on Sunday with 34 points, six 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and one steal in a tough road loss vs. the Clippers.

Kemba has never beaten the Clippers in his career, now sporting an unenviable 0-10 record. He forced overtime with a clutch 3-pointer, followed by a pair of free throws, to quickly erase a five-point deficit with under 30 seconds left. His undermanned team didn't have enough in the bonus frame, however, and the struggling Hornets are now 2.5 games out of the No. 8 seed.
Feb 27 - 12:41 AM

Russell Westbrook survived an injury scare to finish Sunday's win vs. the Pelicans with 41 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists and nine turnovers, making 14-of-29 FGs and 11-of-12 FTs in 37 minutes.

Westbrook limped off the court after falling on a drive to the basket in the second quarter, but he started the third and didn't show any obvious discomfort. He scored 21 points in the fourth quarter tonight and willed OKC to another win, putting them within 3.5 games of the No. 4 seed. He's averaging a triple-double this season, so tonight's line doesn't seem as outrageous as it would for any other human.
Feb 26 - 9:54 PM

Anthony Davis went off for 38 points in a losing effort on Sunday, making 15-of-28 field goals and 6-of-6 free throws with two 3-pointers, seven rebounds, four assists and one steal.

Davis dropped 24 points in the first quarter alone, setting a new franchise record for points in a quarter. He and DeMarcus Cousins combined for a whopping 69 points tonight, but their teammates added just 41 points on 35.1 percent shooting. They're figuring things out on the fly, but so far it doesn't look like AD will take a big hit statistically with Cousins alongside him.
Feb 26 - 9:51 PM

DeMarcus Cousins picked up his 18th technical foul of the season on Sunday, meaning he'll be suspended one game if the tech isn't rescinded.

Cousins finished the game with 31 points and 10 rebounds, making 8-of-15 FGs and 15-of-15 FTs before fouling out, but those numbers are overshadowed by the possibility of a suspension. His combustibility could haunt owners if he gets more techs during the fantasy playoffs. The trade deadline has passed in most leagues, so his owners can only hope that he keeps his cool down the stretch.
