Victor Oladipo was a nine-category dream on Friday with 26 points, five rebounds, four assists, four steals, three blocks and three 3-pointers, while hitting 9-of-13 shots, 5-of-5 free throws and committing just two turnovers in 37 minutes.

Wow. The Cavaliers give it up on a nightly basis to opposing guards and tonight was no different, as Jameer Nelson (17 points, 5 assists) also played well. Any time you have guards matching up against the Cavs, roll confidently with them. Oladipo had scored 10 or fewer points in each of his previous three games, so a meeting with Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters was just what the doctor ordered.

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.

David Lee scored 19 points on 8-of-11 shooting with four boards, two assists and one block vs. the Cavaliers on Thursday.

He singlehandedly outscored the Cavaliers' bench 19-14, but it wasn't enough to keep the Warriors from losing this one. Lee's value this season has been limited due to the emergence of Draymond Green, and he is not going to be worth owning as long as he continues to play around 20 minutes per contest. For what it's worth, this was just Lee's third game with double-digit scoring over his last ten.

Klay Thompson was held to just 13 points in a loss to the Cavaliers on Thursday, adding seven boards, four assists, three blocks and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He shot just 5-of-13 from the field and turned the ball over three times, but the three blocks were his most since Jan. 17. Thompson has seen his scoring average dip to 18.2 points per game in February after averaging 25.9 points in January, so hopefully the sharpshooter gets back on track soon.

Kyrie Irving (shoulder) will not travel to Indiana on Thursday night is now doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

Irving is set to undergo an MRI on Friday morning, so his owners will have to agonizingly wait for an update. The fact that he is not going to travel with the team should all but rule him out for Friday, but crazier things have happened. Iman Shumpert and Matthew Dellavedova will have their hands full in the backcourt if Irving sits, while LeBron James and Kevin Love will carry the load on offense for the Cavs.

LeBron James scored a season-high 42 points in a 110-99 win over the Warriors on Thursday despite briefly leaving the game with a tweaked back.

He added 11 rebounds, five assists, three steals, one block and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes, and it didn't look like his back caused him any problems after he returned to the game. Incredibly, this was James' 41st career game with 40 points, five assists and five rebounds which is the fourth-most in NBA history behind Wilt Chamberlain (61), Michael Jordan (62) and Oscar Robertson (71). The MVP race between James Harden, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook and LeBron is going to go right down to the wire.

Kevin Durant (foot) did some light shooting before Thursday's game against the Suns

This is great news. Durant was rolling around shootaround on a walking scooter on Tuesday, so this is a clear indication that they were just being very careful with his foot. We still do not have a timetable for his return and he's likely to need more than another week off. His fantasy owners should be hoping for a limited practice in the coming days. While he's out, D.J. Augustin and Dion Waiters will help Russell Westbrook with the scoring.

Bulls Vice President John Paxson said on Thursday that he is hopeful that Derrick Rose (knee) will be able to return this season.

Rose is set to undergo surgery on Friday morning at which point a firm timetable will be established, but the Bulls are hoping that this latest injury is just a minor setback. Owners might as well stand pat for now until we get more details after the surgery, but there is still a good chance that Rose misses significant time. Aaron Brooks will continue to start for the Bulls at PG in the meantime and is worth a look in most leagues.

Jose Calderon is not considering shutting it down for the season after his latest Achilles injury.

Calderon is currently in a walking boot and is listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Pistons, but it's great to see him eager to return to action despite the Knicks fighting the 76ers for last place in the Eastern Conference. Langston Galloway will be the primary beneficiary if Calderon misses time, while Shane Larkin (illness) could get some increased run as well.

DeMarcus Cousins (left ankle sprain, left hip contusion) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Spurs.

He was unable to practice on Thursday because of these injuries, and we would be shocked if he was able to give it a go on Friday with the Kings going absolutely nowhere in the Western Conference. We will update his status when we know more, but Rudy Gay is going to be a busy man on offense for the Kings if Cousins sits. Jason Thompson, Reggie Evans and Carl Landry will likely all see a bump in minutes on Friday, but none of them are viable options in standard leagues for now.
Feb 26 - 7:09 PM

Steve Kerr said that he spoke with Stephen Curry and the team's athletic trainer on Thursday, and that Curry's foot issue is no longer a concern.

Curry also said that his foot is feeling "pretty solid," so it appears that there will be no lingering issues after he was forced to miss Sunday's game vs. the Pacers. Curry is coming off a 30-point, eight-assist outing from Tuesday, and he'll look to keep the momentum going with what should be a thrilling matchup against the Cavs tonight. Hopefully the last we hear of any foot/ankle issues for the MVP-candidate this season.
Feb 26 - 6:49 PM

Isaiah Canaan acknowledged during a recent interview that it's been challenging logging heavy minutes with the 76ers as he's still working his body into game shape.

Canaan's minutes jumped from 14.8 per game in Houston, to 30.5 per game since coming to Philadelphia, and that has perhaps been a factor in his 38.7 percent shooting from the field with the 76ers. Canaan will have plenty of opportunity to produce as the unquestioned starting point guard in Philly's uptempo system, so hopefully he'll be able to improve on his averages of 12.0 points, 4.0 assists, and 2.7 three-pointers per game as he gets his conditioning to where it needs to be.
