Julius Randle took to Twitter to refute reports that he would need surgery on his foot after the NBA Draft.

Adrian Wojnarowski had previously filed a story to Yahoo! Sports saying that Randle would require surgery to fix a foot issue he's had since high school, but Randle refuted Wojnarowski's report by tweeting, "No disrespect but check with the actual source next time before you put something like that out there @WojYahooNBA." Randle didn't offer any further information, but it will be interesting to see how this situation plays out as a possible surgery would likely affect Randle's draft position.

Lou Williams' 28 points weren't enough in a 117-108 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

Williams shot 8-of-15 from the field in the loss with three boards, one assist, one steal, one block and five triples in 28 minutes. He also sank 7-of-8 free throws, but that's nothing new for him as he was averaging 5.9 FTAs per game coming into tonight's contest. He's loving life with his new team and may have more value in Houston than he did in Los Angeles, averaging 24.0 points, 1.7 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 4.7 3-pointers in his last three games.

Jeff Teague broke out of his slump with 25 points in Monday's 117-108 win over the Rockets.

He was averaging 13.8 points, 7.7 assists, 3.3 rebounds, 0.8 steals and 1.1 triples on 41.6 percent shooting in February prior to tonight, so this performance will be a relief for his fantasy owners. Teague shot just 5-of-13 from the field against one of the league's top perimeter defenders in Patrick Beverley, but hit 12-of-12 free throws with eight rebounds, six assists and three triples in 36 minutes. Hopefully he carries this momentum into March because he's capable of being an early-round player when he's rolling.

Avery Bradley returned from his Achilles injury on Monday and played just 15 minutes, finishing with six points, two 3-pointers and three steals.

Coach Brad Stevens said he was "tempted" to play Bradley more minutes tonight, but the plan going in was for 15 minutes. His minutes should increase a bit going forward until he's back to full speed and his return will eventually hurt Marcus Smart, but he came through with 16 points in 28 minutes tonight. Bradley had been out for his last 23 games with his injury.

Ty Lawson will start on Monday vs. the Wolves, sending Tyreke Evans back to the bench.

The Kings shuffle their lineups quite often, so don't read too much into this. Lawson is more of a deep-league guy right now with averages of 6.0 points and 4.0 assists in his last two games, while Evans' value should be safe regardless of where he starts the game -- the Kings are thin on the wings right now and Arron Afflalo (hamstring) and Garrett Temple (hamstring) are both out Monday.

Kevin Durant returned from a one-game absence due to his left hand injury and hit 8-of-17 shots, a 3-pointer and 10-of-11 free throws for 27 points, eight rebounds, four assists and a block in Monday's 119-108 win over the Sixers.

It was great to see KD back in action and while it wasn't his most efficient line of the season, he did enough of everything to help his owners, as usual. Hopefully the hand feels good in the morning and he's good to go until his next rest day.

Derrick Rose suffered a left shoulder stinger on Monday vs. the Raptors.

He collided with Patrick Patterson and asked out of the game, but he eventually returned and closed this one out. DeMar DeRozan hit the game-winning shot over Rose, but he said after the game that it was "Great [defense], better [offense]." He finished with 16 points on 5-of-12 shooting with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and three turnovers in 40 minutes. Coach Jeff Hornacek hinted before the game that Rose will have a larger workload after the team waived Brandon Jennings on Monday morning, but that's obviously a risky move for one of the most injury-prone players in the NBA. Rose said his shoulder is fine, so we'll consider him as probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Magic.

Richaun Holmes came off the bench for 15 points, four rebounds, two assists, a steal, three blocks and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes on Monday.

Holmes is suddenly relevant with Joel Embiid (knee) out indefinitely and Nerlens Noel now in Dallas. Holmes has played meaningful minutes in three straight games and is averaging 11.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 3.3 blocks and 0.7 3-pointers in those games. He's a fine DFS punt play right now and deserves some season-long league attention, if you need a big man who can block shots.
Feb 27 - 10:11 PM

Dario Saric played 35 minutes and hit 6-of-15 shots and 9-of-10 free throws for 21 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Monday's loss to the Warriors.

As if things weren't going well enough for the Homie, he also logged some minutes at center tonight with Jahlil Okafor in foul trouble, although it's doubtful that he'll actually qualify there this season. His line would have been a whole lot sweeter had he hit any of his six 3-point attempts, but we're not about to complain about his 21-7-7 line. His price is rising quickly in DFS, but it looks like he's going to be a fantasy beast the rest of the way.
Feb 27 - 9:51 PM

DeMar DeRozan scored 37 points and hit the game-winning shot in a 92-91 victory over the Knicks on Monday.

DeRozan buried a mid-range jumper over the outstretched arms of Derrick Rose with just 1.9 seconds left on the clock. He's going to be a busy man with Kyle Lowry (wrist surgery) out for several weeks, so his fantasy owners should get used to some monster lines -- DeRozan has a 41.0 usage rate with Lowry off the court. He shot 13-of-25 from the field and 10-of-13 from the line, adding eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one triple. You can check out his game-winner in the link below.

Dwight Howard was ejected from Monday's game vs. the Celtics.

He got his second technical foul for hanging on the rim after a dunk. Howard will finish with 17 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 27 minutes. The Hawks will likely have to go small with Paul Millsap at center the rest of the night.

Coach Luke Walton said the Lakers want to see how Ivica Zubac "handles first-string center and bigger minutes."

Unleash the Zubac. Earlier in 2017, the Lakers said they wanted to keep Timofey Mozgov as the starter, but that's obviously not the case and now it's full youth movement. President Magic Johnson also has made it clear he wants to see more Zubac -- Walton said the coaching staff and front office make their own decisions, though. Based on how Zubac is blocking shots and seeing more minutes, he's shaping up to be that strong stash many were hoping for about a month ago.
