Kevin Durant was a one-man wrecking crew against the Knicks during a 112-100 victory on Sunday, scoring 41 points with 10 boards, nine assists, one steal, two blocks and four 3-pointers.

It's the first time since 2011 a player scored more than 40 points with 10 boards and nine dimes, but he probably could have put up a triple-double had the Knicks been able to stay in this game. Russell Westbrook's workouts have been a little more rigorous in the past couple days and the NBA world will be watching to see if Durant can keep up his unbelievable scoring output. For what it's worth, Durant has a sterling true shooting percentage of 66.2 since Westbrook went down.

Cory Joseph, DeMar DeRozan, P.J. Tucker, Serge Ibaka and Jonas Valanciunas will start against the Mavs on Saturday.

Ibaka is back from his one-game suspension and should see plenty of minutes against the slower Mavs team. Tucker will also remain in the starting lineup with DeMarre Carroll (back) out, but we'll see a lot of Norman Powell off the bench.

Coach Rick Carlisle said the Mavs are in "experimental mode" with Nerlens Noel as a starting center.

In addition to Carlisle saying the Mavs "need" to look at Seth Curry as a PG, he added he wants to see how Curry and Noel go together. Noel did have a strong game on Thursday, so he should be getting some good run as the Mavs figure out where he is as a roll man with a 3-pointers guy. He should be starting in all formats tonight.

Derrick Rose (foot) is available to play against the Spurs on Saturday.

The "available to play" tag can be a little worrisome, especially when it's on a tanking team and for Derrick Rose. Rose has also said he doesn't care too much about free agency because he saved his money, so that's a whole different story. There are a lot of red flags on Rose, so most owners may just want to steer clear. Ron Baker and Chasson Randle will lose playing time, assuming Rose is a full go.

Jamal Crawford got hot late to help get a win on Saturday, finishing with a season-high 28 points against the Jazz.

He scored 17 points in the fourth quarter to earn a huge win against a team they're battling with for playoff positioning. Crawford was very efficient in this game, making 8-of-12 from the field, all nine free throws and three treys to go with two boards, three dimes and two steals in just 25 minutes. Terrific game aside, he's not really a fantasy option after he caps his five-game week on Sunday night at home against the Kings.

Kyle Anderson is likely to start for Danny Green (rest) against the Knicks on Saturday.

We've seen Slo-Mo start when Green was hurt earlier this season, so this isn't a surprise. Anderson was not in the rotation on Thursday and most of his minutes this month have been in garbage time. In his seven starts at guard, Anderson averaged just 3.6 points, so Jonathon Simmons looks like he's the better option right now.

Coach Quin Snyder said he thinks Gordon Hayward is "fine" after bruising his left leg.

The coach added Hayward's injury wasn't to his knee joint and it was to a muscle in his leg. Hayward was not available to comment after the game, but the Jazz said that's their standard procedure for an injured player. For now, Hayward sounds like he'll be ready to roll for Monday against the Pelicans.

Iman Shumpert (sore right knee) will not play against the Wizards on Saturday.

This is his "good" knee and not his left one, which required multiple surgeries including an ACL reconstruction. Shumpert being out tonight should help J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver get some added run tonight. Smith is a short-term option and the obvious risk to go along with it.
Mar 25 - 6:30 PM

Rudy Gobert had very little help during a 108-95 loss to the Clippers on Saturday, scoring 26 points with 14 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 36 minutes.

The Jazz probably would've lost by 35 without the Stifle Tower today. While he is known for his defense, Gobert's offense has reached a new height with his 22.5 usage rate, 20.6 offensive rebounding percentage and a 69.3 true shooting percentage over his last five. Advanced stats aside, that translates to box-score averages of 22.0 points, 15.0 boards, 4.2 blocks and 0.6 steals. He's a fantasy monster right now.
Mar 25 - 6:28 PM

LeBron James (right eye corneal abrasion) will play against the Wizards on Saturday night.

He gets the all clear before warmups are completed, so all signs point to LeBron not having a limitation against the No. 3 seed Wizards. James and the Cavs only have a 1.0 game lead over the Celtics, so they could use a win. Additionally, the Raptors, Wizards and Celtics have the easiest remaining schedules in the NBA. Go ahead and fire up LeBron in what should be a close game.
Mar 25 - 5:54 PM

Sean Kilpatrick (hamstring) will not play against the Hawks on Sunday.

This hamstring strain will cost him at least two weeks and the Nets haven't indicated much on his progress. Kilpatrick did have an interesting tweet about his time on the sidelines today. "Our road trips be memorable," Kilpatrick tweeted. "Learning, getting better, and analyzing the game of basketball." It sounds like he'll be studying a little while longer. K.J. McDaniels has seen some minutes while Randy Foye has slightly benefited.

Paul Millsap (knee) and Kent Bazemore (knee) will not play against the Nets on Sunday.

Millsap will now miss at least one week for his knee tightness. The Hawks are a disaster without Millsap and have lost all six games without him this season. His fantasy owners will have a decision on their hands for the upcoming week, but he is day-to-day. With him out, Tim Hardaway Jr. will continue to be a main option while Taurean Prince and Thabo Sefolosha get some added run.
