Kelly Olynyk scored a career-high 28 points vs. the Sixers on Monday to go with nine boards, three assists and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He dropped 25 points on Saturday and has suddenly become the go-to frontcourt guy in Boston. The Celtics are likely to have Jared Sullinger (ankle) and Kris Humphries (knee) in Wednesday's game and will give the rookie big minutes in that game. Olynyk looks like a must-start player vs. the Wizards in the season finale.

Jahlil Okafor (knee soreness) will not play against the Bulls on Friday night.

The team will give him treatment on his sore knee during the game. Okafor's right knee soreness has been ongoing for most of the past 12 months and there's a good chance he misses additional time. Richaun Holmes should start and play big minutes as a must-start option in fantasy -- he's a strong DFS play, of course. Shawn Long should back him up with some Dario Saric at the five, as well.

John Henson (thumb) will not play against the Hawks on Friday.

It'll be his second game out of the lineup. Spencer Hawes was in the rotation for the last game and scored 10 points, so he should be looking at a similar role. Henson was expected to be re-evaluated today, but there's no update on his status going forward. Besides Greg Monroe as a low-end guy, this is a situation to avoid in most leagues.
Mar 24 - 6:27 PM

Danilo Gallinari (knee) will start and Mason Plumlee will move to the bench for Friday against the Pacers.

The Nuggets will go back to their old lineup with Gallo and Wilson Chandler at the starting forward spots. Coach Mike Malone usually plays Gallo huge minutes and he has played well since the break, so expect him to hit the ground running. Gallo's return should take away from Plumlee and Kenneth Faried.
Mar 24 - 6:20 PM

Kyrie Irving, J.R. Smith, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson will start against the Hornets on Friday.

The Cavs have a back-to-back with tonight's game and tomorrow with the Wizards coming to Cleveland. Coach Ty Lue said Love is not restricted to back-to-back sets anymore, so he could play in both games this weekend. Go ahead and get them in your lineups for tonight, but keep an eye out for some limited minutes.

John Wall (migraine) will play Friday night against the Nets.

He is not 100 percent and did not go through shootaround. As he arrived to the arena, he had a gallon of water, was wearing sunglasses and didn't exactly look healthy for this one. His fantasy owners in season-long leagues have to start him, but DFS owners may want to be careful on using him even in a plus matchup.

Avery Bradley (illness) will not play against the Suns on Friday and Jaylen Brown will get the starting

At least it's not Bradley's Achilles injury from earlier in 2017. Bradley should be considered questionable for Sunday against the Heat. For tonight, Marcus Smart should pick up minutes in the low 30s while Brown should get 20-24 minutes in a plus matchup and Terry Rozier could get added run in a blowout. Isaiah Thomas' revenge game also got a little sweeter.
Mar 24 - 5:40 PM

Kenneth Faried (left shoulder) will play against the Pacers on Friday.

He has a contusion and was questionable to play, but the Manimal gets an all clear before warmups. After a big 17-point Wednesday, it'll be interesting to see how he gets minutes with Danilo Gallinari back. Gallo's return will push Wilson Chandler to the four and the Nuggets do want to use Mason Plumlee at PF, as well. Faried would be a risky DFS or season-long play on a busy night.
Mar 24 - 5:36 PM

Glenn Robinson III (left calf strain) has been ruled out for Friday against the Nuggets.

The team only called it soreness on Thursday, so this new diagnosis for a strain is worse. There is no additional info on the severity or if GR3 needed an MRI, but Robinson was losing playing time anyway. With him out, there should be a few extra minutes going to C.J. Miles, Thaddeus Young and maybe Lavoy Allen.
Mar 24 - 4:46 PM

Derrick Favors (knee) will not play against the Clippers on Saturday.

The good news is he was doing some shooting at practice on Friday. Favors' bone bruise has kept him out since Mar. 7 and the Jazz aren't in a rush to bring him back, especially after he said he was playing on one leg earlier this month. The last time the Jazz played the Clips on Mar. 13, Boris Diaw got the start in the win. Joe Johnson may come off the bench, but he's still the better DFS play.
Mar 24 - 3:26 PM

John Wall (migraine headache) is considered questionable for Friday's game vs. the Nets.

Wall did not participate in the team's shootaround on Friday morning. He will be re-evaluated pregame on Friday night to determine his availability. This is shaping up as a game-time decision. It is worth noting that the Wiz are playing the lowly Nets. Many teams have used games against Brooklyn to rest their star players. Luckily, the game tips off at 7 pm, so we will have an official update before DFS lineups get locked in.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: In the event that Wall does sit, both Bradley Beal and Markieff Morris will become much stronger DFS plays. Beal carries a strong 31.0% usage rate with Wall off the floor this year, while Morris leads the starters with a 7.8% usage bump. Bojan Bogdanovic actually leads the Wizards in usage without Wall on the floor, but it's in a smaller sample size. A match-up with the lowly Nets only makes Beal and Morris more intriguing.
Mar 24 - 1:40 PM

Jahlil Okafor (right knee soreness) is listed as questionable and will be a game-time decision Friday night in Chicago.

Okafor got hit on the outside of his troublesome right knee in Wednesday night's the loss to OKC. Okafor was unable to participate in shootaround on Friday morning. All indications from the Sixers and coach Brett Brown point towards Okafor being closer to "doubtful" than "questionable." We will have to wait until later this evening for confirmation. If Okafor does not play, Richaun Holmes will draw the start and would see plenty of minutes.
