Reggie Jackson picked up the slack for Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, coming off the bench to hit 11-of-16 shots, two 3-pointers and 8-of-8 free throws on his way to a career-high 32 points, nine rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block to carry the Thunder in Saturday's thrilling 92-89 overtime win against the Grizzlies to tie their series at 2-2.

Scott Brooks owes Jax big time, as the Thunder would have been put into a 1-3 hole if not for his heroics, and Brooks' job was possibly hanging in the balance. Jackson outscored the Grizz 13-9 in the final minute of regulation and overtime, and had scored a total of 15 points in his previous three games. Durant and Westbrook combined to hit just 11-of-45 shots on the night, although both had plenty of goodies in their stat lines to make up for the poor shooting. Serge Ibaka's 12 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks will likely go unnoticed due to Jackson's heroics, but they shouldn't be. Game 5 is in OKC on Tuesday.

DeMar DeRozan dropped 36 points in a blowout win over the Magic on Monday.

He cooled down on Saturday with 18 points vs. Dallas after a pair of 40-point games, but the Magic had no answer for him tonight. DeRozan shot 13-of-21 from the field and 9-of-14 from the line with three assists, two rebounds and one triple in 36 minutes. Toronto has won six games in a row and are just 0.5 games behind the Wizards for the No. 3 seed in the East, so expect DeRozan to keep eating the rest of the way.

Cory Joseph recorded the first double-double of his NBA career with 15 points and 13 assists in Monday's easy win over Orlando.

The 13 assists were a career-high and he also added six rebounds, one block, one triple and five turnovers in 29 minutes. CoJo finished 6-of-10 from the field, but only hit 2-of-4 from the free throw line. The Raptors still haven't announced when Kyle Lowry (wrist) will return, so keep rolling CoJo out there with three more games on the schedule this week.

Kosta Koufos is starting vs. the Grizzlies on Monday.

The Kings will start Darren Collison, Buddy Hield, Garrett Temple, Willie Cauley-Stein and Koufos, meaning Skal Labissiere will come off the bench. Koufos is going to be rested too much going forward to help fantasy owners, so leave him on the wire.

Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy said Monday he is unsure whether Reggie Jackson (knee) will be shut down for the season, but he is out Tuesday against the Heat.

With Jackson on the shelf it is Ish Smith who benefits the most. He and Beno Udrih will continue to fill the void until such point as Jackson is plugged back into the lineup. Jackson's fantasy owners hope that isn't until the 2017-18 season, but that possibility is looming.

Elfrid Payton scored 22 points with nine assists in Monday's 131-112 loss to the Raptors.

He only grabbed one rebound and missed both of his 3-point attempts, but he shot an efficient 8-of-12 from the field and 6-of-8 from the line with one steal and one block in 31 minutes. Payton has been a new player since the All-Star break and was averaging 12.1 points, 7.9 rebounds, 7.6 assists, 0.7 blocks and 1.7 steals in his previous 15 games, returning top-50 value in standard leagues in that span. He will have to prove to the front office that he's the point guard of the future, so expect him to finish the season strong.

Marc Gasol (left foot strain) will not play on Monday vs. the Kings.

He was considered doubtful, but now we have official confirmation from coach David Fizdale that he will miss his second game in a row. JaMychal Green and Zach Randolph will each see a healthy dose of minutes in the first unit, while Brandan Wright gets a slight bump off the bench.
Mar 27 - 9:07 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) will not play on Monday vs. the Jazz.

He is getting ruled out nearly a couple hours before tip-off, so that's usually not a good sign. His next chance to play will be on Wednesday vs. Dallas. Dante Cunningham will start again, but he's a poor fantasy option. Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday will benefit the most with Cousins out.
Mar 27 - 9:05 PM

Joe Ingles will start in place of Gordon Hayward (quad) on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

The Jazz will start George Hill, Rodney Hood, Ingles, Boris Diaw and Rudy Gobert. Ingles is worth a look if you need some stream some assists, steals and triples, as he's averaging 9.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.7 steals and 2.0 triples in 20 starts this season.
Mar 27 - 9:00 PM

According to Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune, Gordon Hayward (bruised left quad) will not play on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

His owners probably saw this coming because Hayward wasn't able to go through the morning shootaround. The Jazz do have three more games this week, so hopefully he'll be able to give it a go on Wednesday vs. the Kings. Joe Ingles will likely start in Hayward's place and is a decent streaming option if you need assists, steals and triples.

According to ESPN, the Kings are in talks with former 76ers GM Sam Hinkie.

Kings owner Vivek Ranadive has received permission to speak with Hinkie, but there are other undisclosed teams interested in his services as well. With the Kings clearly rebuilding, Hinkie would be the ideal man for the job and he "has long intrigued Ranadive." Hinkie's level of interest is still "unknown," but this could be an indication that current Kings GM Vlade Divac is on the hot seat. This is still in the rumor stage, but it will be interesting to see if the Kings Trust The Process.

Yogi Ferrell is moving back into the starting lineup on Monday vs. the Thunder with Seth Curry (shoulder) out.

Curry's injury is "minor," so Ferrell isn't a must-add player by any means. In 21 starts this season, Ferrell has posted averages of 11.6 points, 4.6 assists, 2.6 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.6 triples, but he's also shooting 40.3 percent from the field.
