The Warriors signed big man Hilton Armstrong to a 10-day contract on Saturday, according to Sam Amick.

The Dubs released him back in December and it's possible his signing could mean Andrew Bogut's shoulder isn't close to being right.

Zach Randolph (hyper-extended elbow) insisted that he will play vs. the Thunder on Friday.

The injury caused Z-Bo to lose feeling in his right hand but he plans to receive treatment, wear a sleeve on his right arm, and take the court for Friday's important matchup with OKC. With two full days before the Grizzlies' next game we'll have plenty of warning if Randolph is at risk of a DNP.

Stephen Curry finished Tuesday's victory in L.A. with 27 points, four 3-pointers, four assists, one steal and one ankle-breaking move against Chris Paul.

This is a somewhat pedestrian line for Steph, who is one of the leading MVP candidates. We just needed an excuse to proliferate his ridiculous juke-move in the second quarter, which sent elite defender CP3 sprawling onto his backside while Curry sank a jumper from the corner. Follow the link below, and enjoy.

David Lee made another fill-in start at PF on Tuesday, finishing with 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting with seven boards, one assist and zero defensive stats in 30 minutes.

Draymond Green was resting a shin injury and may miss another game during the Warriors' back-to-back set on Saturday and Sunday. Lee was solid offensively tonight but he's yet to take advantage of his rare starts this season -- in three games he's now averaging a mediocre 14.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.3 blocks in 27.3 minutes. That's not enough juice to squeeze value out of Lee in standard leagues.

Blake Griffin's elbow injury didn't cause a hitch on Tuesday as he racked up 40 points, 12 rebounds, five assists, one steal and three blocks, while making 16-of-25 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs.

It helped that Warriors forward Draymond Green (shin) was out, which left Griffin matched up with defensive-sieve David Lee for most of the night. You won't hear Blake's fantasy owners complain. He was the focal point of L.A.'s attack tonight and has three more games this week, so this statistical cornucopia is an early gift for all of his owners.

Hassan Whiteside's lacerated right hand didn't slow him down vs. the Spurs, as he racked up 10 points, six rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks without any turnovers in 23 minutes off Miami's bench.

Whiteside played with an awkward bandage that limited the use of his right hand, but he made some emphatic right-handed blocks and produced more than fantasy owners could have reasonably anticipated. He almost had to play tonight with Udonis Haslem (illness) out of commission, but his solid play suggests he'll be fine for Thursday's road game regardless of Haslem's status. Keep Whiteside locked into all active lineups.

Dwyane Wade (left knee) played 34 minutes on Tuesday, posting 15 points, five rebounds and one assist while shooting a mere 6-of-20 from the field.

Erik Spoelstra suggested before the game that Miami isn't worried about Wade's knee -- Kawhi Leonard's defense deserves much credit tonight, but Wade was clearly laboring. A lingering injury led to his knee being drained this weekend and we'd likely see him on the sidelines if Miami's hold on the playoffs weren't so precarious. We'll leave him off the injury report but cautious owners should double-check Wade's status prior to Thursday's game in Cleveland.

Kawhi Leonard was at it again on Tuesday, blitzing the Heat with 22 points (8-of-13 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), one 3-pointer, nine rebounds, three assists, four steals, two blocks and one turnover.

That's an almost pristine nine-cat game from Leonard, who is making an emphatic claim for Defensive Player of the Year honors. He's taken over game after game since the All-Star break, helping the Spurs find a groove that should scare the rest of the league, and he's carrying more than a few fantasy teams to the finish line.

George Hill scored a game-high 28 points in Brooklyn on Tuesday, making 10-of-17 shots with four 3-pointers, six boards, three assists and zero turnovers in 32 minutes.

The Pacers' playoff chances took a big hit with tonight's 106-111 loss to the Nets, as they're now 1.5 games behind Brooklyn for the East's final playoff spot. Hill's fantasy owners might not care, however, as he's caught fire recently with five-game averages of 23.0 points, 2.8 triples, 5.2 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks. That's even sweeter for owners who suffered through his interminable absence to begin the season.
Mar 31 - 10:46 PM

Thaddeus Young (left knee) returned to the Nets' starting lineup on Tuesday with eight points, seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and zero turnovers in a much-needed win vs. the Pacers.

He shot 4-of-11 from the field without any 3-pointers, but any notion of a minute-limit was abolished as he racked up 39 minutes tonight. Thad's true shooting has leaped to 55.4 percent in Brooklyn, up from 49.1 percent in Minnesota, and he should at least maintain his current late-round value as the Nets chase a playoff berth.
Mar 31 - 10:46 PM

Joe Johnson drained three 3-pointers vs. Indy on Tuesday, including a dagger late in the fourth quarter, finishing the Nets' home win with 21 points, six rebounds and four assists.

The 14-year veteran averaged 19.0 points, 3.0 threes, 6.5 rebounds, 8.0 assists and 1.0 steals in his previous two games, bouncing back from an extended slump in the nick of time for fantasy owners. He's very unlikely to face any DNP-CDs with the Nets vying for a playoff spot -- coach Lionel Hollins even said before the game, "I don’t think managing your minutes lengthens your career by one minute."
Mar 31 - 10:44 PM

Thabo Sefolosha got hot in the second half of Tuesday's road loss, finishing with a season-high 19 points on 7-of-14 shooting, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes.

The Hawks lost despite deploying their usual starting lineup but Sefolosha provided a silver lining, proving that he's fully recovered from the calf injury that caused him to miss 23 games. He may be worth fantasy owners' attention when the Hawks rest starters, but is tough to rely on with competition from Kent Bazemore (24 minutes), Shelvin Mack (24 minutes) and even Austin Daye (seven minutes).
