Top-rated prospect Dante Exum has declared his eligibility for the 2014 NBA draft.

A deep draft class gets even better with the inclusion of Exum, who is 6'6" and can play either guard position, though he's likely to end up as a PG in the NBA. He's a guaranteed lottery pick, and ESPN's Chad Ford writes, "If he was playing college ball in the U.S., many NBA scouts believe he would be a serious contender for the No. 1 overall pick."

C.J. Miles sprained his right ankle early during Tuesday's game and he's questionable to return.

He dealt with a severe left ankle injury last season but hasn't had any issues this season, and with any luck he'll be able to return on Tuesday in a must-win game vs. Brooklyn. If not, expect Rodney Stuckey, C.J. Watson and Solomon Hill to all pick up extra minutes and shot attempts.

Dennis Schroder's toe is not broken and the injury isn't believed to be serious.

Schroder himself Tweeted the update and this is terrific news for the Hawks, especially since they're likely to rest Jeff Teague and other starters down the stretch. When Schroder will return is still unclear but he'll be a nice pickup once he's active -- he finished March with solid averages of 13.9 points, 1.2 threes, 2.6 boards, 6.0 assists and 0.5 steals in just 24 minutes per game.

Hassan Whiteside (hand) is expected to play on Tuesday.

Whiteside will come off the bench behind starting center Chris Andersen. His pain tolerance is a main concern for the Heat, as well as the fear that he'll re-tear his stitches before the wound fully heals. His offense is likely to suffer due to the bulky protective bandage on his hand, but his talent is great enough that he belongs in all active lineups.

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said he was not concerned about Dwyane Wade's knee.

Spoelstra added that Wade is past last week's issue, and he seems relatively fine. Wade will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs, and with Luol Deng (knee) out, he's going to be asked to do more on offense. He's coming off a 40-point performance from Sunday, so owners should feel confident plugging him into their active roster despite tonight's tough matchup against San Antonio.

Greg Monroe (knee) hopes to return for the Pistons' "last five games," according to Stan Van Gundy.

Monroe is slowly ramping up his activity and could return as soon as this weekend, according to SVG, though a return for the final five games would have him in uniform on Wednesday, Apr. 8. Anyone struggling to win this week should look for safer options, but this at least gives some hope to owners holding Monroe until the bitter end.
Mar 31 - 6:47 PM

Chris Andersen (calf, shoulder) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.

Andersen will warm up with the intention of playing tonight, and things will be very interesting for Miami if he can't play. Udonis Haslem (flu) has already been ruled out, and Hassan Whiteside (hand) will be a game-time decision, so there's a chance we see some Michael Beasley at the center spot. Tim Duncan should have any easy time scoring tonight.
Mar 31 - 6:33 PM

Udonis Haslem (flu) will not play Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

Chris Andersen (calf shoulder) and Hassan Whiteside (hand) will warmup with the intention of playing tonight, but both guys are going to be limited, so Erik Spoelstra is going to need to get creative with his rotations tonight with no truly healthy big man on the roster.
Mar 31 - 6:26 PM

Luol Deng (knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.

With Deng out, Henry Walker will have the opportunity for another start, with Michael Beasley and James Ennis seeing extended minutes off the bench. Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic will run the show on offense, and both guys are worth a look in daily leagues. Walker can be viewed as a streamer option for those seeking some 3-point shooting and steals.
Mar 31 - 6:21 PM

Hassan Whiteside (hand) said that pain tolerance will dictate whether he can play.

"It felt weird, but I’m gonna do the best I can," Whiteside said. "You’re gonna see a lot more lefty. As long as I don’t spread my fingers and they keep them taped together, I can’t reopen the stitches. It’s surrounded by a pad, so it can be slapped and everything. It’s just about what I can tolerate on the court with the pain. They cleared me. It’s just the performance and how well I can play." Whiteside remains questionable for tonight's game, but it sounds like even if he does play, he's going to be very limited on the offensive end. Udonis Haslem's won't be worth using in most leagues if Whiteside suits up.
Mar 31 - 6:17 PM

Rodney Stuckey (wrist) will play Tuesday vs. the Nets.

Stuckey will draw a very favorable matchup against the Nets tonight, so make sure you have him on your active roster. C.J. Waton's value takes a hit with Stuckey active.
Mar 31 - 6:12 PM

The Hawks will go with their regular starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. Detroit.

Those that made a speculative add of Shelvin Mack under the assumption that Jeff Teague would be rested for this one should probably look elsewhere for production. It'll be Teague, Kyle Korver, DeMarre Carroll, Paul Millsap, and Al Horford in the starting lineup tonight, so go ahead and get those guys active.
