The Cavaliers are reportedly "leaning toward" drafting Jabari Parker with the No. 1 overall pick, despite Parker's unimpressive workout on Friday.

The Cavs also have "some interest" in an offer from the Magic, which would send the No. 1 pick to Orlando in exchange for Arron Afflalo and picks Nos. 4 and 12 in this year's draft. Andrew Wiggins is still in the mix for the top selection if Cleveland decides to keep the pick, as ESPN.com reports, "The Cavs also believe that although Wiggins is more of a risk and not as ready as Parker to contribute right away, he has the higher upside."

Brandon Knight (ankle) did not have a noticeable limp after Sunday's game, but his status may be in jeopardy for Monday's road game in Portland.

Suns coach Jeff Hornacek reportedly said, "I would guess he wouldn't play." The report suggests that Knight will miss Thursday's game in Golden State, but it makes more sense that Hornacek was referencing Monday's game, the second half of a back-to-back set. Either way, Knight's owners should be on red-alert for a potential DNP.

The Thunder won a critical game in Phoenix on Sunday behind Russell Westbrook's 33 points (10-of-29 FGs, 12-of-14 FTs), nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block.

Westbrook now has 24 games with 30+ points this season and he's racking up gaudy fantasy lines on a nightly basis, though tonight's production was tainted by a lousy FG percentage. Kevin Durant (foot) is done for the season and Serge Ibaka (knee) won't return until mid-April at the earliest, leaving Westbrook to single-handedly carry the Thunder in the playoffs. So far, so good, as he's staked the Thunder to a 2.5-game lead over the No. 9 seed Pelicans.

Brandon Knight returned to action on Sunday, coming off the Suns bench for three points, two rebounds, four assists and one steal in 22 minutes, while shooting just 1-of-10 from the field.

He missed all six of his 3-point attempts and the poor shooting is a product of rust -- he hadn't played in a game since Mar. 9. The bad news is that he took a hard fall tonight and might be in danger of missing Monday's road game in Portland, so owners should confirm his status in the second half of the Suns' back-to-back set.
Mar 29 - 11:51 PM

T.J. Warren sank 8-of-10 shots to finish Sunday's home loss with a career-high 18 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.

The Suns' playoff hopes to a massive blow with tonight's loss, but Warren's emergence as a reliable bench scorer provides another silver lining for their season. He did his damage in 29 minutes tonight, without any turnovers, but fantasy owners should still be skeptical -- efficient shooting hasn't amounted to much given his 17.8 minutes per game over the past three weeks.
Mar 29 - 11:50 PM

C.J. Miles poured in a game-high 28 points to help Indiana beat the visiting Mavericks on Sunday, making 9-of-12 field goals with five 3-pointers, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Miles also went 5-of-6 at the FT line, richly rewarding owners who gambled on him despite the return of Rodney Stuckey (calf). He's been good enough to keep in all active lineups, especially since the playoff-hungry Pacers are heading into a four-game week.
Mar 29 - 10:09 PM

Chandler Parsons flourished against the Pacers on Sunday, scoring 27 points on 11-of-20 shooting with 10 boards, one assist, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

Parsons got some extra looks on offense with Monta Ellis (calf) in street clothes, and it looks like his owners can expect a modest bump in production down the stretch. Parsons will get a favorable matchup vs. Kyle Singler and the Thunder on Wednesday, so owners in daily leagues should give him a long look.
Mar 29 - 10:00 PM

Iman Shumpert "jammed" his left ankle during Sunday's game and coach David Blatt didn't seem overly concerned about the injury.

"I think he wanted to come back in there but we held him out for precautionary reasons," Blatt said. "I believe he'll be OK." Shumpert didn't return after the injury and we'll leave him on the injury report as a precaution, though it certainly helps that Cleveland doesn't play again until Thursday. If Shumpert does miss time, expect guys like James Jones, Shawn Marion and possibly Mike Miller to fill the void.

Kevin Love said that his lower back feels "good" and he does not expect to miss any games due to the injury he suffered on Sunday.

Love was elbowed in the lower back but it sounds like his decision to sit out the rest of Sunday's game was precautionary. "I just have to take these next couple days," Love said. We'll leave him on the injury report for now, but will take him off once he returns to practice this week. This is great news for fantasy owners, as the Cavs' two-game slate is already bad enough without an injury-related DNP.

Zach Randolph led the Grizzlies with a 20 & 13 double-double on Sunday, but it wasn't enough to earn a road win in San Antonio.

Memphis has dropped three straight games and they're just 11-10 since the All-Star break, a record that doesn't bode well with the postseason just a few weeks away. Z-Bo's team-high scoring came on 9-of-16 shooting, a solid performance that helps compensate for his utter lack of assists, steals or blocks.
Mar 29 - 9:31 PM

Kawhi Leonard carried the Spurs to a win over Memphis on Sunday with 25 points on 11-of-17 shooting, 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal.

DNP-CDs have been mercifully rare for the Spurs this season, but if Gregg Popovich does intend to rest his key players, there are two likely back-to-back sets coming up on Mar. 31/Apr. 1 and Apr. 7/8. There's obviously no need to panic, especially with Leonard -- the 23-year-old star scored 15 straight points in the fourth quarter tonight and he's reclaimed elite value despite playing a modest 33.1 minutes per game in March.
Mar 29 - 9:27 PM

J.J. Redick poured in 27 points to help L.A. fend off the Celtics on Sunday, hitting 11-of-15 FGs with five 3-pointers, five rebounds and four assists.

The Warriors may want to bring a firehose to Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers, as Redick has been torching opponents in March with averages of 20.6 points and 3.0 triples per game. His high-volume perimeter shooting hasn't affected his percentages, either, as he's made 49.3 percent of his field goals and hasn't missed a free throw since going 1-of-2 on Feb. 23.
