Latest Headlines

Flip Saunders' recent naming of himself as the Timberwolves' next head coach will have no bearing on Kevin Love's stance on his future in Minnesota, according to a report from ESPN's Marc Stein.

Love had previously said he intends to opt out and become a free agent in July 2015 and that stance has reportedly not changed due to Thursday's news that Saunders would take over as the Wolves' next head coach. Minnesota has publicly been saying they have no plans to trade their superstar, but rumors that they are privately listening to offers have become more prevalent as the 2014 NBA Draft nears. We'll update this fluid situation as more news becomes available, but Saunders' decision to move to the bench doesn't seem to have changed Love's mind.

T.J. McConnell, Gerald Henderson, Robert Covington, Dario Saric and Jahlil Okafor will start against the Knicks on Saturday.

It's the same starting five for the 76ers tonight. We'll see if Okafor is on a short leash after Richaun Holmes lit it up on Friday night. Robert Covington also played 15 minutes at power forward on Friday, so there are minutes up for grabs on the wings.
Feb 25 - 6:10 PM

Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) and Joakim Noah (hamstring) have officially been ruled out against the 76ers on Saturday.

The good news for Porzingis is he has a chance to play on Monday night. He also doesn't have any ligament damage following an injury scare on Thursday. With both bigs out, there should be a heavy dose of Willy Hernangomez with some Kyle O'Quinn as well. Lance Thomas is likely the favorite to start, but won't have much value. Carmelo Anthony should be busy, too.

Nikola Vucevic (Achilles) will play against the Hawks on Saturday.

He gets the green light well before tip, so that's a good sign in the short term. On the other hand, it's never good to see a player on a bad team deal with Achilles soreness, so his fantasy owners will have to monitor him going forward. We'll let you know how he looks tonight.

Deron Williams cleared waivers and is likely to sign with the Cavs.

Teams had the money under the cap to sign him, but he is now a free agent. Expect Williams to agree to a deal in the very near future to back up Kyrie Irving. He won't have much value on the nights Irving is active.
Feb 25 - 5:08 PM

Tyreke Evans will start and Ty Lawson will move to the bench against the Hornets on Saturday.

It makes sense against the bigger Nicolas Batum at shooting guard. A good game from Evans could help him earn more minutes, but the Kings are not likely to extend him past 30 minutes due to his injury history. He should still be owned in standard leagues.
Feb 25 - 4:57 PM

Nikola Vucevic is listed as questionable for Saturday against the Hawks due of a sore right Achilles tendon.

The Magic are likely playing for a draft pick and currently sit in the No. 4 spot in the lottery. This is a new injury for Vooch after he played 33 minutes and scored 25 points on Thursday. If he's out, Bismack Biyombo would be looking at huge minutes with Stephen Zimmerman backing him up.
Feb 25 - 4:19 PM

Caris LeVert (illness) will not play against the Warriors on Saturday.

He probably wasn't going to play anyway on the second half of a back-to-back set. With LeVert out, there should be more minutes for Sean Kilpatrick and Joe Harris for this game. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson did not play any small forward on Friday, but maybe that changes. The Nets sitting LeVert out will be very annoying in fantasy.
Feb 25 - 4:11 PM

Al-Farouq Aminu (left knee) is probable for Sunday against the Raptors.

He looks like he's going to be back after missing his last two games. The Blazers only had Noah Vonleh as their only other power forward, so they had to shift Meyers Leonard and Moe Harkless out of position in the last two games. If healthy, Aminu should be looking at close to 30 minutes and would be worth a look in standard leagues.

The Lakers and Jose Calderon are exploring their buyout options, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Lakers have no reason to play Calderon as they look to play their younger guys. According to the report, the Warriors and Rockets look to be the favors to sign him assuming the buyout goes through. The Lakers will be leaning more on D'Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson and Brandon Ingram.
Feb 25 - 2:53 PM

Kevin Durant (left hand contusion) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Nets.

Durant injured his left hand in a fall during the first half on Thursday night. However, X-rays confirmed it was only a contusioon and Durant was able to finish the game in fine fashion. And, before Durant owners get too nervous, it is important to note that the Warriors are playing the NBA's worst team, the Nets, on Saturday. Coach Steve Kerr may simply be using the hand injury as an excuse to give Durant a night off. Steph Curry and Klay Thompson should see extra shots on Saturday, while some combo of Andre Iguodala, Patrick McCaw, Ian Clark and David West will divvy up KD's minutes.
Feb 25 - 1:55 PM

Michael Carter-Williams (patellar tendinitis) is not with the team and will not play Saturday vs. the Cavs.

Despite starting on Friday night, MCW played just eight minutes. This injury may have been a reason for his lack of playing time and production. Either way, Carter-Williams is averaging just 5.5 points and 2.7 assists over the Bulls last six games, five of which he started. If you were looking for an excuse to cut him lose, this latest injury should be it. With MCW out, Cameron Payne, making his Bulls debut, and Denzel Valentine should see additional minutes.
