Mario Chalmers (knee) will play against the Bobcats for Wednesday's Game 2.

He was a game-time call for tonight due to a bruised knee and it sounds like he's ready to start. Coach Erik Spoelstra was asked about Chalmers' status about 30 minutes before this update and he said he was in "wait" mode, so Chalmers is likely not quite 100 percent. If for some reason his knee bothers him, Toney Douglas and Norris Cole would step up.

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.

Carmelo Anthony (left knee) will not play against the Spurs on Saturday.

His troublesome sore left knee will keep him out for his second consecutive game. The Knicks have almost no chance at the postseason and actually moved up to the No. 5 spot in the lottery, so they may try to tank it and get all the way up to No. 4. Melo should be considered questionable for Monday at home against the Pistons. While he's out, Kristaps Porzingis, Willy Hernangomez, Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Kyle O'Quinn will benefit.

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.

Bojan Bogdanovic (lower back stiffness) out for Saturday night in Cleveland.

This is a new injury for Bogie after he played 26 minutes on Friday night. Bogdanovic also doesn't have a history of back problems in his NBA career, so it's likely just a short-term thing. His absence affects a slew of players here. Markieff Morris, Marcin Gortat and Otto Porter should all have much higher floors for this evening. Kelly Oubre could pick up some extra run, too. Plus, John Wall and Bradley Beal should be very busy.
Mar 25 - 6:35 PM

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.

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.

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.
