Latest Headlines

DeMarcus Cousins (sprained left ankle) remains day-to-day after being re-evaluated on Thursday.

This should be considered good news since doctors seem to have ruled out any damage beyond a simple sprain. His ankle was still swollen and he was in a walking boot on Thursday, however, so owners should prepare to be without him for Sacramento's next two games on Friday and Sunday.

Austin Rivers will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's matchup with Sacramento, with J.J. Redick (ankle) unavailable.

Rivers could have a nice game tonight going up against Sacramento's weak defense, so he's on the radar as a potential streamer. Chris Paul, Luc Mbah a Moute, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan will join Rivers in the starting five, and there will be some more opportunity for Jamal Crawford in the second unit sans Redick.

Avery Bradley (illness) was with the Celtics during shootaround on Sunday, but his status for the matchup vs. Miami is still uncertain.

It's unclear how active Bradley was, but his very presence is encouraging after his recent hospitalization. Check back closer to tip-off for confirmation, one way or the other. If he can't suit up, expect Marcus Smart and Jaylen Brown to gain the most in his absence.

With Ryan Anderson (ankle) set to spend the next two weeks on the sidelines, the Rockets will give more minutes to Lou Williams and Sam Dekker.

Mike D'Antoni acknowledged that Williams has been in a bit of a shooting funk as of late, but he's hopeful some added minutes will help him get into a better rhythm. "He hasn't been real consistent, [but] he manufacturers points somehow either getting to the foul line or assists," said D'Antoni. "He started off so well you think he's going to make every shot and it's not fair to him, but he's good." Williams could be worth a speculative add in wake of the Ryno injury.

Eric Gordon will start vs. the Thunder on Sunday.

Ryan Anderson (ankle) is likely going to miss around two weeks according to coach Mike D'Antoni, so Gordon, Lou Williams and Sam Dekker are all looking at a bump in minutes. Gordon is averaging 12.8 points, 2.8 boards, 3.2 assists and 2.4 treys on 43.1 percent shooting over his last five games, and with four games on the schedule next week, his owners should be in great shape in terms of 3-pointers.
Mar 26 - 1:55 PM

J.J. Redick (ankle) will not play on Sunday vs. the Kings.

He's dealing with a sprained right ankle, but maybe the Clippers are being cautious on the second night of a back-to-back set -- this is also the fifth game of the week for LAC. With Redick out, both Austin Rivers and Jamal Crawford should get a nice bump, but Rivers will draw the start.
Mar 26 - 1:54 PM

Ryan Anderson (ankle) is expected to miss at least the next five games for the Rockets.

He will not play on Sunday vs. the Thunder or Tuesday vs. the Warriors, and he's not expected to travel on their three-game road trip after those two games. The Rockets were "relieved" by the test results on Anderson's ankle, and they believe he will return before the end of the regular season. Based on this timetable, the earliest we would see him back is on Apr. 5 vs. the Nuggets, but that seems like a stretch -- coach Mike D'Antoni hinted that he would miss closer to two weeks. In the meantime, Lou Williams, Eric Gordon and Sam Dekker will likely see a bump in minutes.
Mar 26 - 1:48 PM

Jeff Green (back spasms) will not play on Monday vs. the Raptors.

He's not even making the trip and this will be his third straight game on the shelf. With the Magic playing for lottery balls, it wouldn't be a surprise if the veteran missed more time. Mario Hezonja is getting a nice bump in minutes in Green's absence, but he's only worth keeping an eye on in deeper leagues for now.
Mar 26 - 1:34 PM

Leandro Barbosa (hamstring) will not play on Sunday vs. the Hornets.

He has a "left hamstring issue" and will join Ronnie Price (leg), Eric Bledsoe (rest) and Brandon Knight (rest), Tyson Chandler (rest) on the shelf. Expect heavy workloads for Tyler Ulis and Devin Booker the rest of the way.
Mar 26 - 12:51 PM

T.J. Warren (left foot contusion) is listed in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Hornets.

He was "expected" to play, but now we have a little more confirmation that he will return from a two-game absence. Warren was probably dropped in a lot of head-to-head leagues, so it makes a lot of sense to pick him back up.
Mar 26 - 12:41 PM

Arron Afflalo and Kosta Koufos will rest against the Clippers on Sunday.

Of course they will. This is the front end of a back-to-back set, so both players should be active on Monday vs. the Grizzlies. Expect plenty of DNPs for the veterans in Sacramento going forward. Buddy Hield is the only wing worth owning on the Kings right now.
Mar 26 - 12:27 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is a game-time call vs. the Nuggets on Sunday.

He didn't go through the morning shootaround, but he will do everything he can to play in tonight's must-win game -- the Pelicans trail the Nuggets (No. 8 seed) by 5.0 games. If Boogie can't go, Dante Cunningham and Solomon Hill will get a bump, but they aren't great options in fantasy. Jrue Holiday and Anthony Davis will get a nice usage bump as well if Boogie sits.
