Knicks president Phil Jackson spoke with Derek Fisher about their head-coaching vacancy, according to Yahoo! Sports.

It was just a brief phone call and the two are expected to meet again next week. Jackson has insinuated that Fisher is his "plan A" to coach, but he'll still have some work to do to persuade the 39-year-old guard. The Lakers are also after Derek Fisher and general manager Mitch Kupchak is expected to speak with him. Considering the amount of money Steve Kerr received, one of these two teams will likely be offering some big money.

LeBron James (eye) could be a game-time call for Saturday against the Wizards and is listed as questionable.

He suffered a scratched cornea on Friday in the third quarter and was able to return to the game. This is a home game on a back-to-back set, so there is a chance he doesn't play in this important game for Eastern Conference seeding. If you're into factoring in the Las Vegas spreads, it does seem to be more towards the Wizards than you might expect, so perhaps the folks in Vegas think LeBron could miss this one. We should have an update at around 6:00 EDT.

Boris Diaw will start against the Clippers on Saturday.

The Jazz had the same plan against the Clippers in their last game with Diaw as the starter. In that one back on Mar. 13, Diaw scored five points with three boards in just 21 minutes, so there's not much to like here from a fantasy perspective. Joe Johnson scored 14 points in 28 minutes in that game, as well.

Danny Green (rest) will not play against the Knicks on Saturday.

It'll be his first game off since November and it comes on a non-back-to-back set. Green has played 28.5 minutes per game in March, which is by far the most he's played in a full month this season. With Green out tonight, Jonathon Simmons figures to get some extra run and could get some added value in garbage time tonight.

Ryan Anderson (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Sunday's game vs. the Thunder.

This news is not surprisingly. Anderson appeared to badly sprained his ankle Friday night when he landed on the foot of DeMarcus Cousins. At this point, it is unknown if Anderson will miss additional game(s) after Sunday, but the Rockets won't place too much importance on a few relatively meaningless regular season contests with the playoffs less than three weeks away. Eric Gordon may be inserted into the starting lineup on Sunday, with Trevor Ariza sliding to power forward. Sam Dekker will also see an uptick in minutes.
Mar 25 - 1:43 PM

Carmelo Anthony (sore left knee) and Derrick Rose (sore right foot) are all listed as questionable in the game notes for Saturday's matchup vs. the Spurs.

Melo sat out Thursday's game vs. the Blazers, but it was widely believed that was primarily for rest purposes. As always, it is unwise to read too much into the game notes. Thus, we will have to wait for a formal update from coach Jeff Hornacek following the team's shootaround on Saturday. Mindaugas Kuzminskas will likely draw the start if Anthony is unable to suit up.

LeBron James suffered a scratched cornea in his right eye on Friday and may miss Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

LeBron was poked in the eye by Jeremy Lamb in the final minute of the third quarter of Friday night's win over the Hornets. He was able to return to the game but then fell hard on his lower back in the fourth quarter. After the game, LeBron said his vision was blurry and was unable to keep his right eye open. "If coach decides to give me a game off [Saturday], it's not because I'm resting," said James. "It's because I'm banged up." Check back, as we should have an official update from the team following Saturday morning's shootaround.

Stephen Curry handed out a season-high 12 assists during a 114-100 win over the Kings on Friday, adding 27 points, seven rebounds, six steals and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

The Warriors assists were all over the place early with 20 in the first half, which was the second straight time they did so in the first half. As for Curry, he also made his 277th triple this season for the third most in NBA history -- he has the first and second most. Not that anyone should've been worried about Curry's shooting slump, but now he's made 52.5 percent from deep with 5.3 treys per game over his last four outings. Expect a big finish until the Warriors lock up their top seed.
Mar 25 - 3:24 AM

Draymond Green scored a season-high 23 points with four rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers against the Kings on Friday.

It's just his fourth 20-plus scoring game of the season. Green has scored in single digits for each of his last four games, which was somewhat surprising due to how he did have some added usage while Kevin Durant (knee) was out. Green's assists have still been great and the Warriors handed out 37 dimes in this win. The Warriors still only have a 2.5 game lead over the Spurs, so they may not rest too many games until they lock up the No. 1 seed.
Mar 25 - 3:17 AM

Buddy Hield turned in career-highs 22 points, eight boards and seven dimes against the Warriors on Friday, adding two steals and four 3-pointers.

He's about as hot as he could be, matching his previous career-high 21 points on Wednesday. The Kings are resting their point guards now to allow Hield to have the ball more, and he does have at least 32 minutes in each of his last four. He could disappoint his next time out, but Hield looks like an add in standard leagues.
Mar 25 - 2:58 AM

James Harden scored 38 points during a 117-107 win over the Pelicans on Friday with 17 assists, seven rebounds, one block, two steals and five 3-pointers.

That's his NBA-high eighth 30-plus scoring game this month. Harden also scored or assisted on 77 points tonight, and he's currently on pace to set the record for that department this season with 57.7 points per game -- Nate Archibald has the record with 56.8 in 1972-73. He has scored at least 38 points in four straight and will get a big MVP-caliber matchup with Russell Westbrook Sunday afternoon. There will be triple-doubles.
Mar 25 - 2:38 AM

Dario Saric scored a career-high 32 points during a 117-107 win over the Bulls on Friday, adding 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

The Homie Dario just will not let up. As he has all season, coach Brett Brown talked up his future Rookie of the Year. "When you can find someone that competes at his level and also has a selfless side, that's a hell of a package," Brown said. When the 76ers add so much talent to their roster next year, it'll be very interesting to see how Brown uses Dario. Until then, Saric's fantasy owners can just enjoy the ride.
