Dwyane Wade (illness) participated in the team shootaround on Saturday.

Wade was active in the shootaround and this would seem to indicate he will play tonight against the Timberwolves, but he remains a game-time decision.

Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill will not play Friday vs. the Raptors.

With Boozer and Hill out, Tarik Black and Ryan Kelly will likely remain in the starting unit, with Ed Davis seeing extended minutes off the bench. All three guys can be viewed as low-end streamer options in deep leagues, with Davis and Kelly offering the most upside. Head coach Byron Scott said Hill and Boozer may return to the lineup for either Sunday's game vs. the Nets or Monday's game vs. the 76ers. Stay tuned.

Dwight Howard said he'll have his minutes limit increased to 20 for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

20 minutes may actually be enough time for Howard to rack up some decent statistics against a weak Minnesota frontcourt, so he's someone to consider deploying as a low-end option in very deep leagues. However, the minutes limit, horrendous free throw shooting, and the fact he'll be sitting out of back-to-back sets makes Howard a tough guy to own in standard leagues.

Updating a previous report, Erik Spoelstra said there is a slim chance that Chris Andersen (calf) is able to play Friday vs. Atlanta.

This runs contrary to Andersen's comments that he thought he'd be able to play tonight, so we'll be watching this story closely. If Birdman is unable to go, it will leave Udonis Haslem as the only healthy big on the roster, and he'll more than likely be forced into heavy minutes. Haslem double-doubled through 38 minutes of action during his last outing, so he'll be worth a look as a low-end, plug-and-play option in daily leagues if Andersen is forced to sit. Stay tuned.
Mar 27 - 11:57 AM

Hassan Whiteside (hand) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

Whiteside's injury couldn't have come at a worse time for fantasy owners battling their way through the playoffs, and there's currently no clear timetable for his return. We'll be considering him on the doubtful side of questionable for Sunday's game vs. Detroit, and if he's again unable to go, it'll be Chris Andersen (calf) and Udonis Haslem picking up the slack for a Miami frontcourt that has been decimated by injuries. Stay tuned.
Mar 27 - 11:47 AM

Donatas Motiejunas (back) did not participate during shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

Motiejunas isn't headed in the right direction after missing shootaround, so we're going to consider him closer to doubtful than questionable for tonight's game. If he's unable to go, Josh Smith would get all the run he can handle, and he'll be well worth a look as a plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Stay tuned.
Mar 27 - 11:44 AM

Dwyane Wade (knee) did not go through shootaround, and he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Atlanta.

Head coach Erik Spoelstra said that he doesn't expect Wade to play tonight, so we'll be considering him on the doubtful side of questionable. If he is forced to sit, expect Goran Dragic and Luol Deng to see some increased opportunity on offense, with Mario Chalmers likely starting at the two-spot.

Ryan Kelly stated during a recent interview that he's more comfortable playing at the power forward position.

"I’m a little more comfortable there," Kelly said regarding the power forward spot. "I can get more involved offensively than I had been at times [playing small forward]." Kelly has started at the four-spot the past two games, putting in averages of 13.5 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.5 three-pointers, 1.5 steals, and 1.0 block per game. If he can continue to start at power forward, he'll be worth a look in deep leagues for owners seeking some 3-point shooting.

Ersan Ilyasova scored a career-high 34 points on 12-of-14 from the field against the Pacers during a 111-107 win on Thursday, adding six rebounds, two assists, two steals and five 3-pointers.

He gets the fantasy equivalent of a Grammy for posting an effective field goal percentage of 103.6. Back in January, it was a winter war for Ghostface Ilya with his minutes per game at just 17.2. Now, he’s finally been consistent with at least 29 minutes in each of his previous five, averaging 17.0 points, 8.8 boards, 1.6 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 treys on 45.9 percent from the field. He's spitting hot fire right now and is a must-start player.

George Hill stayed hot against the Bucks on Thursday during a 111-107 loss with 24 points, three rebounds, five assists, one steal and six 3-pointers on 7-of-12 from the field.

His six 3-pointers were a career high and the Bucks just left him open way too often. He's scored at least 20 points in four of his last five, averaging 23.0 points, 4.2 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.0 steals, 0.8 blocks and 2.4 triples. Hill no longer has a minutes limit and is one of the hottest properties in fantasy in the past two weeks with second-round value in that span.
Mar 26 - 10:48 PM

David West (illness) will not play against the Bucks on Thursday.

He is dealing with an allergic reaction and it's unknown if this has anything to do with his Friday illness that caused him to play just 12 minutes. With West out, Luis Scola will step in and get most of the minutes at power forward. The Pacers will also likely count on the rest of their starting five to pick up more of the scoring burden.
Mar 26 - 7:07 PM

Rodney Hood (illness) did not travel with the team for their road-game in Denver.

We'll be considering Hood doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets, and if he is indeed unavailable, Elijah Millsap and Joe Ingles will have the opportunity to play extended minutes. Stay tuned.
