Kris Humphries lit up the Pistons' suspect defense for a season-high 20 points on Sunday, while adding 11 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in just 27 minutes.

Humphries sank 9-of-13 shots and both of his free throws, a far cry from his past two games when he averaged 4.5 points on combined 3-of-11 shooting. Boston's upcoming four-game week should smooth out some rough patches, but Humphries remains a borderline fantasy option in the Celtics' busy frontcourt.

Kyle Lowry (right wrist) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers.

The swelling in Lowry's wrist has gone down, and all the tests performed came back clean, so it doesn't sound like this is a very serious injury. Head coach Dwane Casey said he's considering Lowry day-to-day, so for now, we'll be considering him questionable for Monday's game in New York. With Lowry out tonight, Cory Joseph will draw the start and DeMar DeRozan will be working with a Russell Westbrook-like usage rate.

Al-Farouq Aminu (left knee) is good to go for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

Trail Blazers beat writer Mike Richman speculates that Aminu will be coming off the bench in his first game back following a two-game absence, meaning that Noah Vonleh would remain Portland's starting power forward. Still, Aminu's numbers have actually been slightly better as a reserve this season, so feel free to get him active.

Wilson Chandler will enter the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies, with Kenneth Faried (back) unavailable.

Through 19 starts this season, Chandler owns averages of 16.8 points, 6.5 boards, 2.6 dimes, 1.5 triples, 1.1 steals and 1.9 turnovers per game, so make sure you have him active. Jameer Nelson, Gary Harris, Danilo Gallinari and Nikola Jokic will join him in the starting five.

Avery Bradley (Achilles) will not suit up for Sunday's game against the Pistons.

Bradley was able to get in some pregame work, and head coach Brad Stevens said he'd be back "any day now," so perhaps Bradley will be able to return for Monday's home game against the Hawks. With Bradley out, Jaylen Brown will get another start with Marcus Smart logging extended minutes with the second unit.
Feb 26 - 4:34 PM

Reggie Jackson (neck) will start Sunday vs. the Celtics.

Stan Van Gundy said that the team has been winning, so he's not thinking about changing his starting five at the moment. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Marcus Morris, Jon Leuer and Andre Drummond will join Jackson in the starting five.
Feb 26 - 4:32 PM

Kevin Durant (left hand contusion) is questionable to play Monday vs. the 76ers.

Durant sat out Saturday's easy win over the Nets, and with a matchup against the 76ers on Monday, Steve Kerr may elect to hold his superstar on the sidelines rather than risk him aggravating the injury against one of the worst teams in the league. Patrick McCaw got the start in his place on Saturday night, but it was Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson who saw the biggest uptick in value sans The Duranchula. It'll be more of the same if Durant is out again on Monday.
Feb 26 - 3:50 PM

Dewayne Dedmon will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

Pau Gasol is healthy again, but Gregg Popovich is working him back into things slowly by bringing him off the bench. Tony Paker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and LaMarcus Aldridge will join Dedmon in the starting five for today's game.
Feb 26 - 3:42 PM

Alex Len will remain in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Bucks.

Len was able to see 35 minutes his last time out as a starter, but Tyson Chandler was rested for that game, so it'll be interesting to see how many minutes Len can earn with Chandler active. Eric Bledsoe, Devin Booker, T.J. Warren and Marquese Chriss will join Len in the starting five for today's matinee.
Feb 26 - 2:45 PM

Patrick Beverley (groin) was withheld from competing during Sunday's practice as a precautionary measure.

Beverley said that his groin was feeling a bit tight, but he's not expecting to miss Monday's game against the Pacers. Check back for official confirmation on his status following Monday morning's shootaround.
Feb 26 - 2:32 PM

Kenneth Faried (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.

With Faried on the sidelines, there will be more minutes available for guys like Wilson Chandler, Juan Hernangomez and Darrell Arthur, with Chandler offering the most upside out of the group. The Nuggets have a back-to-back set coming up, Tuesday in Chicago and Wednesday in Milwaukee, and for now, we'll be considering Faried questionable for those games.
Feb 26 - 2:15 PM

Khris Middleton will start on Sunday vs. the Suns, sending Michael Beasley to the bench.

This is an indication that the Bucks are ready to increase Middleton's workload, but just keep in mind that he could be rested on Monday vs. the Cavs on the second night of a back-to-back set. He has played 24 and 26 minutes in his previous two games, so maybe he can flirt with close to 30 minutes Sunday. He has early-round upside like we saw last season, so Middleton could be a league winner if he finds his form.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Middleton is averaging 1.12 FanDuel points per minute this season. He’s in a great spot Sunday against Phoenix – Milwaukee’s implied team total is 9.8 points above their season average (115.3) and the game’s projected pace is 3.3 above their normal rate (102.1). Given his cheap price, he projects as one of our top points-per-dollar plays on both FD and DraftKings.
