Latest Headlines

Stephen Curry, who had a seemingly good matchup against Jose Calderon and the Mavericks on Tuesday, played just 22 minutes and hit 4-of-12 shots and a 3-pointer for 10 points, four assists and three steals.

He was a disaster in daily leagues and didn't do his owners in standard leagues any favors tonight, but is at least playing through a quad injury. The Warriors somehow still managed to crush the Mavericks tonight, and Mark Jackson simply chose to rest him in preparation for tonight's game at Chris Paul and the Clippers (Wednesday). Curry got some much needed rest, as the injury has really slowed him down recently, but you have to think he's going to go all-out against CP3 and the Clips tonight.

Isaiah Canaan suffered a right ankle sprain against the Wizards on Wednesday and did not return.

The injury occurred late in the game, so it's unknown if this ankle sprain was severe. If he needs to miss time, the 76ers will likely have to revert back to using JaKarr Sampson as the backup point guard. Ish Smith is an extremely strong add in standard leagues now. Canaan finished with 18 points, three rebounds, six assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 22 minutes.

Aron Baynes scored a career-high 18 points with five rebounds and one block in 24 minutes against Orlando on Wednesday.

He came to Orlando not as a conquer, but as a liberator to return control to a team with the fifth-worst record in the NBA and help them move higher in the lottery. Baynes was 8-of-8 from the line and also played terrific defense on Nikola Vucevic. Unless you have an obsession to adding necessary evil to your roster, leave Baynes on the wire.

Brandon Knight (heel) is doubtful to play against the Warriors on Thursday.

The Suns are calling it a heel injury, but it may have something to do with his ankle sprain from last month. With Knight out, Marcus Morris should be owned in all leagues for his starting numbers on a three-game night. T.J. Warren is also worth a look in deeper leagues.
Apr 1 - 8:09 PM

Monta Ellis (calf) will play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.

Ellis' calf may not be 100 percent healthy but he's one of the league's toughest players and it's no surprise to see him in the starting lineup. He'll give the No. 7 seed Mavericks whatever he has tonight, as they try to fend off the No. 8 seed Thunder, and he's safe to activate in all leagues.
Apr 1 - 7:49 PM

Derrick Favors (back) will return to action against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

He's ready to roll after missing two games due to a back issue. Favors was able to go through shootaround this morning and he should be in the 22-28 minute range. Trevor Booker can be dropped in most leagues.
Apr 1 - 7:09 PM

Dwight Howard (rest) will not play against the Kings on Wednesday.

He is going to play tomorrow against the Mavs. With Howard out, Joey Dorsey will get the start and Terrence Jones should get some run at the five, too. Howard isn't a must-own player and will likely have a minutes cap for the next week or so.
Apr 1 - 6:59 PM

Kevin Martin (hamstring) will not play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

This is not a surprise despite the Wolves saying Martin could return. There's also some hope he'll play on Friday, but we have our doubts. Lorenzo Brown and Zach LaVine will get most of the backcourt minutes tonight.
Apr 1 - 6:55 PM

Ricky Rubio's sprained ankle will sideline him again on Wednesday.

Rubio was doubtful to play and at this point we're wondering why the Wolves don't shut him down. He's missed nine of Minnesota's past 10 games and there's no clear indication when he might return, leaving Zach LaVine with a clear path to extended minutes in the backcourt.
Apr 1 - 6:54 PM

DeMarcus Cousins will play against the Rockets in Houston on Wednesday.

Coach George Karl said on Monday he would think about resting Cousins on the road, so this is a mild surprise. Cousins' fantasy owners can start him tonight in what should be a productive game with Rudy Gay (concussion) out. The other Kings' players aren't going to have as high of a ceiling.
Apr 1 - 6:52 PM

Kelly Olynyk (left eye laceration) will attempt to play vs. the Pacers on Wednesday.

It's a crucial game for both teams' playoff hopes, which explains why Olynyk is even considering playing -- he took a hard elbow during warmups and his eye has swelled up to nearly the size of a golf ball (you can see it via the link below). We doubt he'll be very effective tonight and there's still a chance he won't even play, which makes him a very shaky option.
Apr 1 - 6:45 PM

Dion Waiters (foot) will play vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday.

He didn't have any setbacks during shootaround and it sounds like his re-evaluation on Tuesday went well, so Waiters should be in the clear. That doesn't make him a reliable fantasy option, of course, as he shot just 41.7 percent from the field and 62.9 percent from the FT line in March.
