Al Jefferson (plantar fasciitis) said the Bobcats may be "trying too much" to feed him the ball in the post despite Miami's aggressive defense.

The Heat have stifled Jefferson and Kemba Walker, and thus far none of their teammates have done enough to compensate offensively. The greater concern for Charlotte is Big Al's availability for Game 4 on Monday. "It’s been one day of pain, the next to recover," Jefferson said about dealing with his torn plantar fascia. "It feels like there are 20 nails in my shoe right now. And I’m feeling every one of them." Although he's likely to suit up, coach Steve Clifford suggested that Jefferson will be a game-time decision.

Avery Bradley (left elbow strain) has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Bradley isn't even traveling with the team right now, so we're going to have to consider him questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Magic as well. With Bradley sidelined, Evan Turner, Jae Crowder, and Isaiah Thomas will all have the opportunity to see extended minutes, with Thomas offering the most upside as the guy who will likely be asked to carry a heavier load on offense.

Chandler Parsons (ankle) will remain sidelined for at least two more games.

That means Parsons will be unavailable for Thursday's game vs. the Trail Blazers, as well as Friday's matchup with the Warriors. He did however say that he is hopeful to suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Lakers, so we'll be considering him questionable for that one. With Parsons sidelined, Richard Jefferson will continue to start with Al-Farouq Aminu seeing extended minutes off the bench.

Tyson Chandler (hip) went through shootaround this morning, and he remains probable for Thursday's game vs. Portland.

Head coach Rick Carlisle said "it's looking good," for Chandler suiting up for tonight's game, a move that will send Bernard James back to the bench and to irrelevancy in most leagues. Go ahead and get Chandler in your active lineups.

Updating a previous report, JaVale McGee will not be heading to Boston.

The two sides apparently couldn't come to an agreement on the terms of McGee's contract, so he will seek employment elsewhere. McGee is averaging a meager 4.6 points, 2.7 rebounds and 0.9 blocks on the season, and unless your league awards points for appearances on Shaqtin' a Fool, McGee belongs on the waiver wire.

Kyle Lowry (rest) said he's making progress and is close to a return.

The Raptors didn't practice on Thursday, but this is good news for Lowry's fantasy owners. Lowry will accompany the team on their three-game road trip so we'll consider him questionable for Friday's game against the Hornets. Greivis Vasquez would again be a solid plug-and-play option if Lowry is unable to suit up against Charlotte.
Mar 5 - 12:59 PM

Patrick Beverley (right foot sprain) is questionable for Friday's game against the Pistons.

Beverley just can't catch a break this season as he's become a mainstay on the injury report. We'll keep an eye on his status after Friday's shootaround, but Jason Terry, Pablo Prigioni, and Corey Brewer would all be in line for more minutes (albeit with limited fantasy value) is Beverley is unable to play on Friday.
Mar 5 - 12:45 PM

Terrence Jones (lower back pain) is questionable for Friday's game against the Pistons.

Jones has been on fire as of late, so his owners will have to watch his status closely leading up to Friday's game. If he's unable to suit up, Josh Smith and Donatas Motiejunas would be in line for big minutes against the Pistons.
Mar 5 - 12:41 PM

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau said Derrick Rose (knee) is still in the initial phases of his rehab process.

Thibodeau added that Rose has been riding a stationary bike, but it doesn't sound like he'll be traveling with the team to Indianapolis or San Antonio. Rose is planning on returning this season, but it's unlikely he'll return in time to make enough a dent in fantasy leagues and can be left on the waiver wire in most leagues.

Russell Westbrook (face) said he has no issues with his protective mask that he wore during Wednesday's win over the 76ers.

Westbrook recorded his fourth consecutive triple-double Wednesday night and the mask did little to hamper his efforts. "I mean, it was weird, obviously, [I] kept wiping it and it was a total, big process of trying to keep everything from not falling and all this stuff," he said. "But that's not going to stop me. My job is to come out there and lead my team." There's not much else to say about Westbrook right now other than that he should be cemented in every fantasy lineup.

The Boston Celtics are reportedly close to signing JaVale McGee.

McGee has had a fair share of suitors since being released by the 76ers, but it looks like he'll end up in Celtic green on a deal that will reportedly be through the 2015-16 season. McGee will join a crowded Celtics frontcourt of Tyler Zeller, Brandon Bass, Kelly Olynyk, so the fantasy fallout from this move is more of a downgrade for all four players than it is an upgrade for any.

Andre Drummond scored 13 points with 18 boards, one assist, one steal and six blocks against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

It's not a tough argument to make that the Reggie Jackson trade is helping Drummond. In his last five with RJ, Drummond averaged 16.4 points, 13.6 boards, 2.6 blocks and 0.4 steals on 63.2 percent from the field. He's still going to be abysmal from the line, but Drummond is back to being a beast.
